Febreze Noseblindness Review & Giveaway – ends 8/5 #Noseblind

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

FebrezeGiveaway

I was recently sent a prize pack from Febreze in order to facilitate a #Noseblind test and have a movie night in my home! We recently had our favorite couple over for a family movie night. We are really close friends with them and they have two children just like we do, so we took advantage and watched Rio 2 and had some popcorn with our kiddos.

Have you ever heard of Noseblindness before besides the title of my blog post? Noseblindness is just simply what it states. When you live in your home, you become immune to the smells that are around you over a period of time. Whether you think you may have odors or not, you probably do. It can be just as simple as your kids, or your husband, or those dishes in the sink. Maybe the pile of shoes by the door, or that old carpet. You may not notice them since you are used to smelling them all the time. This is why I was happy to have some friends over to really tell me what they thought.

Here’s what we received to try out:
1 Febreze Air Effects in Meadows & Rain
1 Febreze Fabric Refresher in Meadows & Rain
1 Febreze Noticeables with refill in Hawaiian Aloha
1 Febreze Candle in Meadows & Rain

Now I don’t know if they were just being nice or not, but they said they didn’t smell anything in our home and have never noticed anything before when they came over (except for that one time I made deviled eggs before an Easter get together, YUCK!). Now we all know that popcorn, especially movie butter popcorn has a very strong smell, so we cooked up some yummy (and not so healthy) movie butter popcorn to enjoy with Rio 2. After awhile of eating the popcorn, we couldn’t smell it any longer. Fortunately, our kitchen and living room are connected and we actually have a Febreze NOTICEables oil plug in, right behind the couch, so before you know it, we could smell the sweet Hawaiian smell of the Hawaiian Aloha scent.

We have since used the Air Effects as well as the NOTICEables candle and I have been rather impressed with these Febreze products. The smell of the meadows & rain is really great and refreshing, without being to overpowering. Febreze has a lot of products out there on the market that you can find at your local supermarket. My favorites are their Air Effects and Fabric Refresher. They are both great to get rid of stale odors in your home, which we all have from time to time.

SmartMom Mobile App for iPhone is a MUST!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored guest post on behalf of SmartMom Mobile App.

SmartMom1

Motherhood begins as soon as you see those two blue lines that say everything – you are pregnant. So many different emotions go through your head: joy, terror, elation and anxiety. While you know this is the most important thing you’ve ever done, it’s also the most daunting task you’ve ever been given. This new intense and deep love drives you to do whatever is best for your child – to do whatever it takes. Questions runs through your mind every second:

Why is he kicking more than usual today?

How can I help my infant sleep through the night?

Why is my child licking everything in sight?

smartmom3

You’ve checked out all those mom forums but they don’t have what you really want: instant access to the information and recommendations you want, in a positive and supportive community.

Now there is – introducing SmartMom.

Available now in the iPhone App Store, SmartMom is a mobile app that allows new and experienced moms to exchange information, opinions and pictures of their little ones. With an entire community of moms at your fingertips, SmartMom can answer all of your questions quickly and skillfully.

SmartMom2

Why do we love SmartMom? So many reasons.

For one, it’s fast. Because of their push notification settings, SmartMom ensures every question is answered by notifying users of new questions. You can choose to be notified throughout the day, just a couple of times, or never. On average, questions are answered in less than ten minutes, with about ten helpful responses in 24 hours. The fact that it is mobile means you are notified instantly when someone responds to you. No more sitting by the computer or compulsively checking your e-mail, just instant access to the information you need.

Another reason: the community of moms involved. Never have we ever experienced such a positive and supportive environment. SmartMoms will agree that the small community of moms on this app is one that fosters positivity. SmartMom community managers ensure that the community stays this way through close monitoring of posts and comments.

Lastly, contests. As other users respond positively to your answers, they will “like” them, giving you points. These points are used toward monthly contests through which we reward the most active members of our community. In the past, we have given away a B.O.B. Stroller and a $500 gift card to Old Navy, just to name a few.

Download the app today and tell all of your mommy friends about SmartMom! There’s a whole community of SmartMoms who may have the answers you need!

Combi Go and Grow Walker, Play Table & Chairs Review & Giveaway – ends 8/5

CombiGiveaway

I told you on Facebook to be on the lookout for a giveaway for those who are expecting or who are having a baby, so here it is!
We have a fabulous giveaway up for grabs from Combi USA and us here at Everything Mommyhood, the newly released Combi Go and Grow Walker, Play Table & Chairs!

Combi USA is a quality baby gear company that was established in the United States in 1989. Combi originated in Tokyo, Japan in 1957 and cultivated from a firm and growing foundation of customer trust. For over 40 years Combi has been providing safe and original products for every setting of your child’s life.

The Combi Go and Grow Walker, Play Table and Chairs is a 3-in-1 modular play set that grows with your child. During stage one, children can stay entertained by the plush toy bar in the stationary activity center configuration. In stage two, little ones will become mobile while using the walker setting. Once your child is able to walk on his own, transform the walker into a play table for stage three. Two coordinating chairs for play time and meal time are included.

We here at Everything Mommyhood received the product for review and I will have to say I was a bit overwhelmed at first with the amount of pieces that came in the box. After reading over the instructions everything was a bit more clear because I understood how each stage of the play set would be set up.

Combi_GoGrow

I made sure to get a picture of all the pieces with everything laid out too, which I promise once you read the instructions it won’t be so overwhelming.

Combi_GoAndGrow_Parts

The instructions were very thorough and easy to understand. I would have liked a few more pictures as I’m a very visual person, but they were pretty easy to follow.

First, when you put it together as the first stage you have the Stationary Entertainer. This is perfect for baby and has the little toy bar, and the platform underneath that’s nice and smooth and comfortable for baby’s feet. The seat itself is fabric and is easy to put in and take out (included is a tool to make this easy) so you can throw it in the washer if it gets messy. The Go and Grow is super easy to wipe clean too.

Combi_Stage1
Second stage is super easy as you just remove the floor of the stationary entertainer and it automatically becomes a walker for your baby to get around in. The caster wheels swivel with ease on our hard wood floor and would be perfect for an infant. I know how much my children loved the opportunity to be able to move around and enjoy things around our home while in their walker before they actually walked. My children were both 18 months before they learned how to walk, so this would have been fabulous to have when they were younger.

Combi_Stage2

Third stage is the table and chairs. Now getting the caster wheel holders off of the base were a bit tricky requiring some muscles, once they were off, it was a breeze putting the last stage together. If my husband was here, we would have had it done in just a few minutes. My girls love the shape of the chairs and how fun they look. In fact, my 2 year old is always carrying a chair around the house. She puts it in the living room, her bedroom, and even the kitchen. My 2 year old and 5 year old can both sit in the chairs and use the table together, so it’s definitely built to last for a long time.

Combi_Stage3
Don’t mind the fact that my girls look possessed in this picture, I was having trouble with my camera. As you can see they are both happy to be sitting there. The table is very sturdy and wipes down easily, which is a huge plus in my book.

All in all, this is a great product that grows with your child. You will be saving money in the long run by purchasing the Combi Go and Grow Walker, Play Table & Chairs, versus other products that you’d have to purchase separately.
