Now that summer is almost here a great product to prevent headlice!

With outdoor/indoor interactions with many children, head lice is also a part of summer!  As a preventative measure I use, “Fairy Tales” Shampoo, Conditioner and Repellant Spray on my children daily to prevent head lice.

A friend of mine’s child got head lice from a prestigious school, and almost had a nervous breakdown!  It can be from anywhere the movie theatre, school, someone’s home, summer camp, and anywhere that has fabric chairs or couches, etc.  (The telltale signs are continuous head scratching or itchy scalp.)

Fairy tales products are also sold at Whole Foods, Babies R’ Us, Target, some drug stores, & beauty supply stores. I like them because they are all natural, safe and is organic as well! 🙂

Go to www.fairytaleshaircare.com to order, for peace of mind is worth any dollar amount right?  Their website has a lot of information on the subject area, so check it out!

Enjoy!

Great magnifier items for kids!

In Parenting Magazine, they had an advertisement for LCD digital microscope for your little explorers by “Celestron”!  My son who loves to discover and look for bugs, or great finds at the beach, will love this learning device, as will yours!

It has a built-in digital camera to take pictures or video of your child’s great discoveries, and finds!

Go to www.celestron.com for more information.

Another great gift we bought for him is a, “Geo Safari Sea Scope” which your child can look for things in the ocean, bay, or a lake.  Amazon had it priced much less than other sites fyi.

Since we are at the beach & bay during the summer, my children will love this great discovery tool, for it is an important part of child development to learn about the world we live in!

Enjoy!

BEST low calorie, frozen pop EVER!

In one word… WOW! I was in Stop & Shop and noticed a bright green box labeled, “Diana’s Bananas banana babies”. They are a half of banana dipped in dairy free dark chocolate (which has riboflavin & it good for your heart).

They are 130 calories, and has 6 grams of fat, has zero grams of trans fat, contains 310mg of Potassium, and 2 g of protein… LOVE IT!

What I like is that it is low in calories, and fat, for most ice cream bars are high in calories & fat, so this is a healthier alternative!

My son devoured it, as did my husband and I, so I am back to Stop & Shop tomorrow to stock up. 🙂

Go to www.diananasbananas.com for more information, & ask the manager of your local supermarket to order them!

Enjoy!

How to teach your child to properly wash their hands…

When my son was potty training, I explained how important hand washing was, as well as before you eat.  There was a great product and it is still around called, “Squid Soap”.

It makes a small ink dot of the hand that presses down on the pump, so that a child will rub his/her hands together for 15-20 seconds.  (Since they are a bit expensive at $6.50 a bottle, they can be refilled with any other hand soap, once more before the ink runs out… I have found.)

Go to www.squidsoap.com to read more! I have seen it at some Target’s, Babies R Us, as well as on Amazon, LOVE this product!

Amazing Picnic foldable table for kids!

I have been searching for a white, plastic, picnic table for my deck and my mother in law scored a GREAT one!  It is called, “Kidnic Table”, she purchased it at COSTCO for $68.  I Goggled it, and saw that Walmart sells it for $49, but you have to pick it up at the store.

What I love is that it is lightweight, sturdy (go to www.kidnictable.com to watch the demo, for a man stands on the bench, so you could say it’s quite durable, lol), and it could be taken to the beach, a picnic, sports event, and be used for many other things!

Head out to get it, for I predict it will be a, “HOT” item this summer!

Father’s Day gift ideas…

Three things I love are… custom-made Pop Art posters from www.allpopart.com, where you send them a picture, and they transform it into art!  I have one that I had framed, and am getting another 2 done, love it!

The second are custom made silver or gold cufflinks by Haley M. Go to www.haleym.com to view them.  She has the best quality photo cufflinks, I think, & she is offering 10% off on her website for Father’s Day!

Last are custom-made shirts in which you could choose from over 50 different fabrics, as well as personalize from Blank Label.  Go yo www.blanklabel.com to view this fabulous idea, love it!

Fashionable and inexpensive Vegan bags by Buddha Bags, check them out!

For my friends birthday, she saw this Buddah Bag in a shop, and when I went to check it out I just loved them all!  The quality and prices are amazing, for they look like designer handbags… I think.

They are all Vegan, (aka not made out of leather) and the following styles I think are the best of them all:

Fiesta, Cozumel, Sailor, Pearl, Ivy, Dock & Chloe are my favorites, so either go to www.mybigbuddah.com (is offering a $10 coupon if you join their mailing list), Zappos, Nordstrom to check out my pics, as well as their entire collection!
