This special edition includes the original 2010 book, named best Children's Religious Book from the 2011 International Book Awards.

This special edition, which hits stores just before the holiday season, is the perfect gift for young readers

 I am all in praise for this special edition of Children of God Storybook Bible. We loved the first edition and I am more than happy to have my son listen to this book through the CD that comes with it. The illustrations are simply beautiful beyond words and my son loves to read it with me. The CDs come in a neat folder so that they go right back in. The book and the CD come in a neat slipcase and this will be such a beautiful gift for birthdays or Christmas!

Review: Junior Firefighter Costume from Costume Discounters

I love to encourage my son to do pretend play as it develops his imagination and one of his or rather his only favorite is wanting to be a fireman. He had a Kidorable Fireman Raincoat which he loved to wear but soon graduated to being a real fireman. He loves anything to do with being a firefighter! He  was even willing to trade his fireman raincoat for a real firefighter coat.

When I had the chance to review this Junior Firefighter costume in Tan, I knew who would be over the moon! 

I was really stunned with the quality of this costume. Thick but soft and comfortable fabric with reflectors make it look like real gear.

Fight fires and save lives as a brave firefighter.Costume features full and authentic turn-out gear, three metal clasps close the jacket, reflective striping on jacket and pan ts provide safety and pants feature cargo style pockets. Costume also includes a black fireman’s helmet with fire chief shield.

The cherry on the cake was the really cute and cool helmet which completes the whole set. You can also pair it with Childs Jr. Fire Chief Boots to get the complete look.

 I know that my son would live in this if he had to. The size fits a 4-6 yr old. My son is a tall 3 yr old and also the straps for the pant are adjustable for different height requirements. This will be so loved for a long time and I will keep this as a memoir to give my son when he grows up.

You can buy it from Costume Discounters for $49.97 ( regular price $74.99).

Other discount costumes are available for various occasions of Costume Discounters at great prices !

HALO® ComfortLuxe™ Two-Piece Set ( R+G) 9/30 US / CAN Enter with Rafflecopter!

I am a great fan of cotton and you can simply tell that by looking at my wardrobe. I go for 100% cotton when shopping for my son as it is the best for skin and oh so comfortable too!

When I received this ComfortLuxe two-piece set from Halo Innovations, it was hard for me to believe that this ComfortLuxe fabric which looks not so soft can actually be better than cotton. I was also not sure if my little energy buster will stay long in it, since he is used to cotton. 

So we tried it and he loved the little dinosaur. The fabric is true to the word for its performance. It regulates the body temperature so the child feels comfortable and not too hot and not too cold.

ComfortLuxe microfibers work by “breathing” – regulating body temperature and wicking moisture away from the skin where it evaporates quickly (twice as fast as 100% cotton!). Coupled with its lightweight, soft, and a silk-smooth texture, ComfortLuxe will provide less chafing, which can lead to fewer skin irritations for more comfortable sleep. 

As a parent, what I liked most was the cuffs on the sleeves and the legs. They are just right for little legs to enter and stay put so that the pajama doesn't slide to the feet. I chose 1 size bigger as my son is tall but skinny. The waist was loose due to the bigger size but length was perfect and even though it is a size bigger, it not even once came off his legs. 

I am very satisfied with the product and would recommend it to my friends. ComfortLuxe has also been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the National Eczema Association.

You can purchase this  ComfortLuxe two-piece set , which also is available in pink, from for $21.95.

J3LL Watches ( R+G) - enter with Rafflecopter! 9/30

J3LL are the latest in adding some style and  color to your outlook. They are the new watches that can be simply  worn everyday with their bands. The really cool thing is that you can now match your t-shirt or handbag with your watch!

I received 4 watches in 2 different shapes- the "Clock" and the "Rock" to try and I really like the silicon straps that give a very cool and comfortable feeling. 

The colors are really lively and can brighten up a "quick-fix" outfit that I pick out to wear on a really busy day. The only thing I am not sure about the watch is its water-resistant feature. Since it is not mentioned in their website, I would keep it away from any water e.g.I would be cautious to wear it on a rainy day. The faces are really bigger than I expected it to be but they would look smart with casual wear.

The coolest feature of this watch is extremely easy to use. Just take out the face from band and put it in the next favorite band . Teenagers will love to wear these watches with different outfits. If you want to make a teen happy, they will be so pleased with this!

Buy it:

J3LL watches come in 2 styles , The Rock (square face) and The Clock (round face).  A complete  set can be purchased for a special price of $24.99 (regular price $34.99) and additional faces or bands can be purchased for $14.99 (regular price $19.99).

Loblaw Baby and You - Have you joined?

Once upon a time ( time flies by so fast that now I recall the newborn days like it was ages ago!) I was reading, thinking  and everything I did was for my baby. I just wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing, so I always read books and spoke to other moms about their experiences.

Wisdom is something we often gain from our experiences in life, but we can also gain wisdom through experiences of others. And I can boldly say that having inputs from other parents have definitely positively influenced some of my decisions. In short, I love to be where I can ask questions, share my experiences and learn from others. Without a doubt, it has saved me a lot of time and money.

To help new parents, Loblaws, SaveEasy, Your Independent Grocer, Real Atlantic Superstore, Valu-mart, and Zehrs and Dominion stores in Newfoundland and Labrador, have launched a Facebook page-Baby and You dedicated to bringing value to your shopping experiences.

It is a community where you will find some money-saving coupons ( who doesn't like to save some bucks and put them back in your pockets?) from great brands and worth-considering tips from mommy bloggers. You can join the chat and have great conversations with other parents - be it about which stroller is practical and stylish or about parenting, you will be glad to hear from others.You will find links to Mom Talk, Baby Talk, Exclusive savings and even some contests.
Overall, you will just enjoy being there with everyone! Hop over to see what the buzz is all about!!
