Easter Gift Guide 2020

When it comes to my family, we love to get together whenever we can. With so many of us, we all have different tastes in drinks. Some love a great beer, where others love some great wine.  Thats where Wine Insiders comes in handy, I am able to order wine online and have it shipped to me for these reasons, and I can get some for everyone's tastes.

They have a great selection you can choose from, reds, whites, something to suit everyone's tastes and likes especially my family

Give A Baby Doll For Easter

At 12″, this sweet little doll is the perfect size for little hands.  It’s very soft, bead-free, and light-weight.  The skin areas are made of a soft-touch vinyl that is gently scented with vanilla.  She’s all dressed and ready for bedtime with her jammies and slippers.  The fabric is made of different textures specifically to stimulate little hands, however, it is not removable.  The little hat with bunny ears can be removed but will stay attached by a small tab. This made me so happy because my granddaughter (and many kids) lose everything!  The doll has a small name tag attached which will come in handy if she’s ever lost at daycare or a friend’s house.  Your baby will have so much fun playing with her own baby.

Bonding With A Fun Craft

I have 2 granddaughters that I love playing with.  I especially love teaching them crafts because they enjoy spending time with me (or whoever).  Bonding is one of the reasons I get creative with them.  It’s fun and fulfills a purpose.  Not only do they love the time we spend together, but they also get a boost of confidence seeing what they can create.  I was so excited to take my Finger Looping Bunny Kit by Faber-Castell over to them.  When my oldest granddaughter saw what was in the box she was ecstatic!  She (and I) couldn’t wait to start putting it all together.  This looks a little intimidating, but let me put your mind at ease.  It’s not only fun to do, but it’s also so easy!  Her little fingers had no problems looping this cool bunny together.


When I initially heard about this product, I was skeptical. I wondered, “How can a tool help peel a hard shell ?” Well, I was in for a surprise, and a good one at that. If you go to the product’s website, their homepage has a video at the top that demonstrates how it works. I have to say it is impressive!

How The Negg Does Its Job

The Negg package came with a pamphlet that recommends how to boil the eggs. After boiling and cooling off the egg as directed, you then place approximately 1/4 cup of water in the Negg container and then add your egg. Then you place the top on and shake the container as directed. After that you remove the egg and then peel. Voila! I was able to peel my eggs with minimal effort and within a matter of seconds. Before I had the Negg, I was a lot less likely to make hard-boiled eggs because it was such a pain to peel an egg. Sometimes after peeling I’d be left with 50% of the egg because the remainder was stuck to the membrane and shell and I didn’t have any more patience to peel it. But, now I think I’ll be a lot more motivated to make hard-boiled eggs because this tool is so handy and makes egg preparation super efficient!

My mom and grandmother have instilled in me the need to reduce, reuse and recycle. I am very grateful to them for that, because it helps me be more conscience of my habits and wastefulness. There are only a finite amount of resources in the world and landfills are filling up with so much waste as well. Plastic has been the most wasteful us humans have been consuming with us as a resource. We are blindly polluting and destroying our planet because of it.

SOL + SPIRIT is a company that is spreading awareness about the environment and  how to reduce plastic use everyday! They are like minded to me as they want to reduce our ecological footprint. Using sustainable goods is one way to do that. So they provide the highest quality, zero-waste eco-friendly products to sustain an environmentally healthy lifestyle.

I can’t live without coffee and everyday I must drink it. But the problem with me is I am always trying to brew my coffee at the last minute. That means I barely have enough time and I must head out the door or I would be late taking my kids to school. I’ve heard of the company Eat Your Coffee and I totally love that motto! Yes, if that makes it easy for me to grab my pick me up, I will gladly take a bar of some sort!

Eat Your Coffee specializes in bars with all very healthy ingredients of dates, nut butter, and organic coffee. The coffee does have caffeine. They are all conveniently individually wrapped at one point six ounces each. The snack bars and keto bars contain 80mg of caffeine and the nut bars and snack bites contain 65 mg of caffeine each. Because Eat Your Coffee has such a variety you can choose what options you like. For instance, if you need low carb bars, you would try the Almond Mocha Keto Bar. If you are the type of person who doesn’t really care too much for coffee flavor, then you would try the Peanut Butter Mocha Bar. Lastly, if you don’t want to consume too much calories, then you would get the Cocoa Espresso Snack Bite


I remember when my kids were little we always dressed them up for Easter.  We’d go to different family members’ homes while the kids hunted for Easter eggs.  Unfortunately, the pretty clothes didn’t hold up as well as they did.  They’d either step in mud or something else as staining!  I didn’t care at the time though, as long as they had fun.  If you’re looking for sweet clothes for your sweet kids, look no further than Feltman Brothers.  They have beautiful, quality clothing for children from preemie all the way up to toddlers.  The gorgeous dress they sent to me is almost indescribable, but I’ll certainly try!  The dress I received is called the Easter Bunny Fly Sleeve Dress (24 Mo) and it even has some sweet embroidery on it.  My granddaughter loves it!

Sweet Clothes For Sweet Kids

Oh, Sweet Easter!

Kids absolutely love Easter, don’t they?  Well, anytime a child is getting a gift and going on a fun egg hunt, they love it.  I remember when our kids were small, my sister would make these cool notecards with clues for the kids to find their baskets.  They loved doing that so much and it will always be a treasured memory.  Make this year (and every year) a wonderful memory for your loved ones.  Create a special tradition that you and your family will continue a lifetime!  That’s something to hold near and dear to their hearts forever.  Happy Easter to all of our readers!

Safely Painting Nails With The Kiddos

There are so many times I’ve wanted to paint my granddaughter’s nails, but all I have is my nail polish.  Unfortunately, that isn’t good for little ones to use or even be around.  Not only is it unhealthy, but it’s also messy…permanently messy.  Imagining the bottles being knocked over makes my skin crawl.  Now there’s a solution!  Piggy Paint is a non-toxic nail polish that kids will love.  There are tons of colors to choose from and it’s virtually odorless.  Imagine giving your little sweetheart a set of these for Easter!  You’ll have smiles all around and you won’t have to worry about it being unsafe.  Oh, it’s also a nice break from giving kids candy for Easter, but they’ll still be happy.

Safely Painting Nails With The Kiddos

The wonderful Piggy Paint set I received is the Funny Bunny Gift Set and the colors are not only pastel, but they’re oh so pretty!  They also sent me a bottle of Base Coat & Top Coat to “top” it all off.

One of the beauties in life are not to forget to appreciate the past. Some of the most fun I’ve had are when I attended musical concerts. I can even remember how refreshing a cocktail was that I had during the amazing time I had dancing and hanging out with my friends. When I look back at the past, I wish I would have saved my concert ticket stubs just so that I had something tangible from that time and place. Well the founder of Evoke Candle Co did save her concert ticket stubs!

Who doesn’t love a good snack? No matter what the occasion or the time of day, I feel that a good crumb cake is something that can satisfy any craving. My favorite crumb cakes are the ones baked by Clarkson Avenue Crumb Cake Company. I’ve never tasted anything so moist and not so overwhelmingly sweet. The crumb toppings are so delicious and are my favorite in the world. If you have not ever tried a bite of their super delicious crumb cakes then for sure you are missing out on life.

Online Bakery

Clarkson Avenue Crumb Cake Company does not have a physical location, because they are purely an online business. However, they can ship anything nation wide. It only takes a few days to process an order, then shipping takes up to three days. The crumb cake does arrive very fresh and it properly bubble wrapped and boxed so it does not get broken or ruined. The crumb cakes should be refrigerated if they won’t be consumed immediately and they can even be frozen. To thaw out a frozen crumb cake, just leave it on the counter for three hours
