Making Memories with My Baby's Heartbeat Bear {Review}

Hearing your baby's heartbeat for the first time is a experience unlike any other. I still remember everything about that moment; where we were, the emotions, and relief. I could listen to that heartbeat all day. My Baby's Heartbeat Bear takes that precious moment and makes it a keepsake to cherish for a lifetime! Keep reading to learn more about this wonderful company and their collection of unique stuffed animals.

About My Baby's Heartbeat Bear:

"There’s nothing more awe-inspiring for expecting parents than the sound of their baby’s heartbeat, heard for the first time during an ultrasound appointment. Now this milestone moment can be preserved forever thanks to the ultimate pregnancy keepsake: My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear. This innovative gift provides everything needed to capture that precious sound and create a permanent treasure."

The Stuffed Animal:

There were so many cute stuffed animals to choose from! They have both traditional and non traditional animals to choose from. The company also offers gender reveal animals and various accessories to add the perfect touch to your keepsake. I ended up choosing the vintage bunny. I wanted something classic that would match with our baby girl's nursery.

The vintage bunny came in a cute box and includes everything you need. The stuffed animal, a recordable heart module, and easy to understand instructions.

I absolutely adore this stuffed animal and it will be a cherished part of the nursery for years to come. Whenever I press the heart and hear that heartbeat it puts a smile on my face. I'll certainly remember My Baby's Heartbeat Bear the next time I go to a friend's baby shower. It is such a one of a kind gift that is both thoughtful and unforgettable.

Candlemart: Scents For Every Occasion {Review}

If you step into my house you may notice something...I have candles and wax warmers everywhere. I love the scent candles and wax bring to a home. I feel like scents can bring back fond memories of the past. They can also make you feel happy, relaxed, and calm. I recently purchased some of Candlemart's products from their website and I wanted to let you know about the great experience I had! So let's talk wax!

About Candlemart:
" A long time ago in 1987, when Burt Hanna was a poor college student trying to make ends meet, he started making potpourri in the basement of his house. He started selling the potpourri and had great success. So much success that he was able to move out of his basement factory into a real factory. He entered the home fragrance industry as a young entrepreneur, tried making just about everything that had fragrance, and found a niche in the emerging scented candle market.
Today Hanna's Candle Company makes tons of candles. We use 20 million pounds of wax a year (10,000 tons), which would make 3.2 billion birthday candles; which would circle the earth 6 times. We make beautiful, wonderfully scented candles and home fragrance products that are affordable and relevant to today's home decor colors and design."

My Candlemart Products:

I decided to order an assortment of wax melts from Candlemart. I really like melts as there is no flame involved just fragrance.

All the wax melts I got for just around $20!

Pumpkin Palooza Collection

This fall collection was just released on their website and I couldn't help but buy one of each! Fall scents are hands down my favorite. These scents are warm and inviting. It reminds me of visiting our favorite New Hampshire farm and picking out pumpkins and apples.

  • Sweet Pumpkin Roll: Brown Sugar, buttercream, sweet lemon, pumpkin accord, ginger, nutmeg, vanilla, pecan, and sugarcane.
  • Cinnamon Pumpkin Tart: pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon bark, vanilla whipped cream, and golden graham.
  • Creamy Pumpkin Butter: pumpkin, cardamom, nutmeg and pure vanilla extract.
  • Pumpkin Caramel ParfaitPumpkin spice, buttery caramel, honeyed cream and vanilla.

Harvest Heirloom Collection

From this collection I choose the mulled cider fragrance. This scent brings me back to days of going our my families yearly trip around the mountains. We always stop at a local farm and get hot cider. The smell brings back happy memories and makes me want a cup of my favorite fall drink. One cute detail is on the cover of the wax melts is a recipe for cider. I may have to try it out!

  • Aunt Judy's Crock Pot Wassail Mulled: Cinnamon, nutmeg, and crisp apple

Ozark Valley Apples Collection

Going along with the fall theme I picked one set of melts from their apples collection. The Honeycrisp apple was fresh and crisp! 

  • Ozark Honeycrisp Apple: McIntosh apple, green grape and neroli.

Holiday Trios

The next wax melts I purchased are for the Christmas season! These are wonderful to mix and match and create your very own custom holiday scent. 

  • Holiday Peppermint Trios: peppermint, mint leaves, and candy cane.
  • Holiday Pine Trios: evergreen & cedar, holly berry, and pine.

Pure Fresh Collection

I had to try one of these melts in the collection. Having a order neautizly melt for the kitchen is something I haven't seen before but wanted to try. 

  • Sparkling Herbs Kitchen Neutralizing: green herbs, citrus, lemongrass, and eucalyptus

Bargain Basement Finds

This site had a great clearance center. Who doesn't love finding a deal. I found Cinnamon Rolls and Caramel Pecan Buns for only $1.00 per package, You can't beat that price. These clearance two finds seemed to be just as great of quality as the other full price wax melts I purchased. They were just in the clearance as they are being discontinued.  The scents were rich and will be perfect to use in my kitchen wax warmer.

  • Classic Cinnamon RollsFresh baked bread, cinnamon and sweet sugar icing
  • Caramel Pecan BunsOoey, gooey caramel, roasted pecans and baked cinnamon 

What I thought:

 I found these melts to be very high quality and certainly well worth the price. They are also all made in the USA! The prices from at Candlemart are very reasonable. The price per set on these wax melts ranged from $1.00 to $2.49. Also customer service was exceptional! Emails are responded to quickly. This company wants happy customers.

Almondina Toastees & Biscuts {Review & Giveaway}

A snack that tastes great and is guilt free? Almondina has just that! I was so excited when I learned about this company and all their high quailty products. This family run business makes all of their products right here in the USA. Read more to learn about their famous biscuts and new Toastees.

About Almondina:

"Almondina® is the inspiring success story of a man whose great loves include both music and wonderful food. For generations his family loved his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau Sec. Yuval Zaliouk, an internationally known symphony conductor and gourmet chef, always had a special place in his heart (and stomach) for this exquisite, crispy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds and the natural sweetness of plump raisins. Long after his grandmother’s death, Zaliouk became aware that the remarkable characteristics of this addictively delicious but extremely nutritious cookie fell squarely in line with the growing demands of health-conscious buyers at the end of the century. Within seven years having started baking in his kitchen, the cookies, renamed Almondina® for his grandmother, were available in all fifty states, sought after in seven foreign countries, and had brought him recognition as Entrepreneur of the Year."
