DIY: Mickey Mouse Shape Eggs

Growing up I remember I would not eat things that looked funny. I was the pickiest eater and still am unfortunately.  Now my son is too.  He does not like most foods and I have to become very creative at getting him to eat.  

My daughter on the other hand loves eggs and I try different combinations so she does not tire of it.  My son, nonetheless does not like eggs UNTIL I cut out the Mickey shaped eggs.  I bought a cookie cutter shaped Mickey on Amazon and decided to use it on the egg omelette.  

All I did was scramble an egg and placed it in the pan as seen above.  I then placed the Mickey shaped cookie cutter within the egg and cut it out. I then placed them on a plate.  Very simple to do, just be careful as the cookie cutter is made of metal and gets hot.  Once my son saw the Mickey shaped eggs he wanted to try it.  From then on he now likes eggs. What we moms do to get out kids to eat.  You can try it on pancakes, sandwiches, fruits, and vegetables and see how your kids will love it too.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse - Minnie-Rella DVD Review

My daughter, Ashley, is in love with Minnie Mouse. So much so that when I got the DVD package in the mail she took it right out of my hand smiling. She then pointed to the DVD player for me to play it for her. I was excited when I got the chance to review this DVD.  Ashley's face comes alive when she watches the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and is over the moon when she sees Minnie. 


Minnie-Rella is inspired by the Cinderella fairy tale. It starts with her friends trying to get a present to surprise Minnie but need to keep her busy while they get it. She gets so busy working she falls asleep and wakes up as Minnie-rella. It has wonderful music that your kids will love and your favorite Disney

The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie-rella DVD comes packaged with the full-length adventure, a FREE Castle Play Set, 3 additional Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes and 10 Minnie’s Bow-Toons Shorts!

Three additional episodes

Pluto’s Tale – In Pluto’s very first fairytale adventure, we help Prince Pluto rescue Princess Bella from the clutches of sneaky Wizard Pete.

Mickey and the Enchanted Egg – Mickey finds an egg which soon hatches into a Baby Dragon. Mickey and his friends have to return the Dragon back to her castle home and convince the powerful Wizard Pete that they didn’t steal the egg in the first place.

Daisy’s Pony Tale – When Professor Von Drake’s new invention, a Fritzer-Spritzer Spray Potion, accidentally gets spritzed on Daisy’s ponytail, it makes her hair grow super long! That’s not goody-good at all. Along with Mickey and Sire Goofs-a-Lot, Daisy travels on her pony to find twelve leaves of the magical plant, Rapunzel, in order to reverse the effects of the Professor’s potion and fix her ponytail.

Holiday Shopping with Kmart & Sears Free In Store Pick Up

This holiday season seems to be the busiest time of the year. Between shopping, untangling lights, wrapping (or unwrapping) and baking dozens of cookies, my regular life doesn't press pause. You can only read so much articles on 'holiday hacks' before you realize that unlike the miracle of Santa getting down a chimney, there is no Christmas miracle for making the holidays less busy. 

You can, however, find little ways to relieve the stress and smile more. One way I've found is by using free in store pickup and earning more points (with ShopYourWayRewards) while shopping. Both Sears and Kmart offer $10 back in points when you spend $59 and free in store pickup, letting you earn more points while shopping thousands of gifts online in the comfort of your own home before picking up your items in store in 5 minutes guaranteed (or whenever you're ready). 

With in-store pickup you'll avoid lines, busy stores and the wasted time of walking down every aisle. The bow on top: You can have a friend or relative pick up your order and pay in store with cash, if you prefer. Now it's no question that you should do your holiday shopping at Sears and Kmart while earning more points and try the free in store pickup at Sears or Kmart but there's now a question of, what will you do with more free time over the holidays and your extra points? 

A few ideas include:
  • give yourself a gift using your points, 
  • making gingerbread houses with the kids or 
  • simply putting your feet up and enjoying the view of the Christmas tree with presents purchased at Sears and Kmart. 

To learn more please visit Sears and Kmart.

Wantable November MakeUp Box Review

I had never heard of until I got to try there products. It is an up and coming company that sells makeup, jewelry and intimate apparel.  I was super excited when I was chosen to sample there November makeup box.  

You simply go to Wantable and you pick your preferences based on a questionnaire.  It is long list of items (lipstick, nail polish etc.) and you tell them what items you Like, Love or Dislike. That is it, your box will be sent with products you "Love."  You are not ever sent products that you "Dislike." The products are always full size.

I received my box a couple of days after I chose my preferences.  When I received my box, I was disappointed after I opened it.  The product sent to me fit a teenager better.  I am of olive to dark complexion.  I got a hot pink lipstick and other products. You can imagine but I did not let that phase me.  I contacted Wantable and explained the situation. I got an email from Amanda Bowman who was extremely helpful and said she would send me out another box. She told me how to make my selections better so that I could get the product that were more specific to me.  

I once again filled out the form and got the box pictured above.  I am totally happier with this new box.  It's like waiting for Santa to come and bring you your Xmas gift.  You are not sure what you are going to get but the excitement is thrilling.  I got the Manna Kadar Lash Primer, Michael Marcus Shadow Prime, Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush, Star Looks Single Shadow Compact Pearl and a small sample of Skiin Soothing Smoothing Eye Cream.  

Manna Kadar Lash Primer $ 19.00
Michael Marcus Shadow Prime $24.00

Japonesque Travel Smudger Brush $14.50
Star Looks Single Shadow Compact Pearl

I cannot wait for Christmas to use it all. I will be blending the shadow prime with my other makeup to get my color tone.  I will be mixing and matching the pearl eye shadow to compliment my dress.  I cannot wait to use the lash primer so my eyes can pop from all the xmas glee.  All in all I am very happy with Wantable.  There customer service is superb. They went above and beyond to fullfill my satisfaction.  Thank you Amanda for all your help.
