Finding the right kind of toilet

Although it may seem to be the cheapest since it is always used for a dirty work, but you toilet is definitely one of the most costly and a vital part of your house. It not only should be a product that is well tuned to your needs, but there are a lot of other technical details as well as presentations that you need to keep in mind when purchasing the right toilet.

The one thing that you can always to before you make any kind of purchase this to go through the different kinds of best toilet reviews that you can find over the Internet. This gives you a clear-cut picture on the toilet sensibilities, the kind of problems that you will be able to face with the toilet of your choice and a whole lot more. You would certainly not want to find yourself getting lost in the maze specifications, but try and get a gist of what has been mentioned in the review. That way, you can let go for the less important specifications found in the review and go for the most important ones like the dimensions and the flush of eight and the amount of water it holds in the flush tank.

Moreover, using a toilet is a lot more than just simply looking at the color combinations. Do you want to go for the elongated or the round bowl? Do you want to go for the short height toilet or all one? These are just some of the details that you need to keep in mind when you’re seeking out information from the best toilet reviews. Overall, the toilets will also need to be of a good brand in order for you to display at least some sort of interest on purchasing such a product.

Sesame Place’s Halloween Spooktacular!

*Disclosure: I received a complementary ticket and a discount on additional tickets for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.

Our family had such a Spooktacular time on our first trip to Sesame Place last week! Having recently moved to northern Virginia, we were very excited to be within driving distance of Sesame Place, located in Langhorne, PA just outside Philadelphia. It’s an entire amusement park geared toward families with young children. Donovan, at four years old, was big enough to ride all of the rides, and Avery, at two years old, was only too small for two of them! In the whole park!

The size of the park is great for small kids, too. It’s got plenty of things to keep them entertained all day, but it’s not so big that you feel like you’ve been dragged halfway across the world by the end of the day. Most of the lines weren’t terribly long, either. I think the longest we waited all day was about 15 minutes. And we had beautiful fall sunshine throughout the day—no melting in the hot summer sun!

Right now, they have The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular in full swing. The park is decorated for Halloween, and there are Trick or Treat stations set up throughout for the kids to collect some treats. They also have several special attractions for the event, including the Count’s Un-Haunted Halloween Maze. The boys loved the wonky mirrors and finding all the numbers and animals hidden throughout the twists and turns.

Donovan’s favorite ride was the swings. He was scared to get on it, but he was brave and ended up loving it. He asked to go on it again later that day.

Avery, as usual, liked the carousel best—that kid would literally ride a carousel all day long if we let him.

Unfortunately, nearly half the park is water rides which are closed for the season. But, they looked like so much fun! We are already planning a trip back next summer to check them out. The lazy river looked especially fun…it was really long! And Avery kept asking why we couldn’t go play on the water structures…he’s definitely a water bug. But, we had an amazing time, despite the closures.

If you live on the east coast and have small children, Sesame Place is definitely not to be missed. It was so nice to be in a place geared specifically toward little kids, where they could ride and participate in everything. They also have various opportunities to meet the Sesame Street characters, though we skipped those since our kids are not fans of costumed characters. Right now, Sesame Place is open only on weekends, and will reopen daily in summer of 2015. Check out their website for more information and ticketing: Sesame Place. We will definitely be going back!

Mustela Bebe — Gentle Skin Care for Babies & Moms

*I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mustela. I received product samples to facilitate to my review and to thank me for participating.
My boys are now almost 4 years old and 20 months old, but we are still trying different brands of skin care products to find something that will keep their skin healthy, doesn’t smell weird, and doesn’t have all kinds of toxic chemicals in it. Recently, we’ve been trying out Mustela’s newly reformulated Bebe line of skin care products including HydraBebe Body Lotion, 2-in-1 Hair and Body Wash, Facial Cleansing Cloths, Stretch Mark Care Oil, and Hydra Stick.

After doing 10 years of cutting edge research, Mustela applied their findings and recreated their line of baby skin care products to make them even safer and more effective. The ingredients are 92% natural in origin and now include Avocado Perseose for ultra hydration. And it’s great for kids with eczema like mine. I do have to admit that the scent of HydraBebe Lotion, Hair and Body Wash, and Facial Cleansing Cloths is not my favorite. I’m not entirely sure what it smells like, but it reminds me of something that used to make me ill when I was pregnant…I still have trouble with certain scents that set off morning sickness early in my pregnancies even though it’s been over a year and a half since I was pregnant! But, the lotion does keep my boys’ dry skin moisturized throughout the day. And the facial cleansing cloths are a quick solution to clean up little faces before bedtime.

I’m really, really loving the Stretch Marks Care Oil, though. It smells AMAZING! Like roses. And even though it’s an oil, it absorbs really quickly and is not at all greasy. My skin feels really soft and healthy after I use it. My two little guys left me with stretch marks on my abdomen…and, I’ll admit, on my boobs, too. I’ve only been using the Stretch Marks Care Oil for about a week, so I can’t yet report on long term results, but it’s a great product for hydrating my skin. I hope to see real improvement in my stretch marks by the time I’ve used the whole bottle.

I also really like the Hydra Stick with Cold Cream Nutri-Protective. It’s this little, compact stick of hydrating balm, sort of like a wider version of chapstick. I’ve been rubbing it on Avery’s cheeks periodically where he gets a little eczema and baby acne, escpecially in the dry winter air—it’s still basically winter here in northern Illinois. It keeps his cheeks protected from the cold and has helped keep his face eczema free. And it’s so small that it’s easy to keep in the diaper bag so we can take it on the go.

Mustela has been the number one baby care and stretch marks brand in Europe for 60 years! And now they’re expanding in the US to bring natural, healthy baby skin care products to us. Mustela is currently offering free shipping and a free pack of Facial Cleansing Cloths when you place an order of $50 or more. Just use promotional code MOM314 at checkout.
