This Fat little Piggy

So I am not the one normally feeding the pig, that's my husbands job. I went out to visit her and WOW....fatty fatty! She's HUGE! Here is a comparison photo.

Apparently she doesn't like me, but loves Don! Guess it's because he's the feeder. He gets her tons of slop from work! She is all over that! We also have another new addition to the farm..

Meet Totoro our new pup.. Someone just dumped him one day and well he is just so lovable that we kept him. Well trained too! Yes he was named after the Japanese cartoon My Neighbor Totoro! :-) Kids, you gotta love them!

~Review~ Just for Men AutoStop

My gracious husband Don volunteered to try out Just For Men AutoStop for me to review. We chose Real Black for the closest match to his color. Don has some grey in his sideburns and his neckline. Just For Men AutoStop is used to treat 25-50% grey in your hair. I would say Don has about 20-25% grey.

The application was super easy. You basically put the comb attachment on the tube of dye, squeeze a little out and then comb where you have grey in your hair. That's it. It glides right through your hair. Don has exceptionally thick hair, and we had no issues getting it to breeze through!

After 10 minutes it's time to shampoo and rinse. I am happy to say that even though thy provide gloves, there is no real need for them. Unlike other hair dyes I have used, this one did not stain your hands or skin on your neck and face. It rinsed right off and left no black residue. No ruined towels or clothing. That's a huge plus in my eyes!

Here are the results, No grey showing at all! Yes he does need a haircut!

We were both pleased and although Don would not ever use hair dye normally (he doesn't mind the grey) he said he would recommend it to anyone who wanted to give it a try. We both give it a thumbs up!

If you would like to try it and get a $2 off coupon go visit the Just For Men page on Smiley360. While your there sign up and you can also get Free Samples to try for review!

~Review~ Honey Amber Teething Necklace by LAMB

I have a 7 month old who is teething...and we all know what that means. Crying, screaming, fussiness, sleeplessness, and pain. I decided to try a Amber teething necklace that I have been hearing so much about from other mommies. I'll be honest, I was in no way thinking it would help, but hey what did I have to lose? If it worked I got a happier baby and if it didn't at least it was pretty. It's also a plus that it's all natural and not a medication.

I ordered an Amber teething necklace by Lamp on Amazon. I got Honey but it also comes in Cognac and Multi Colored. It came in a little sheer bag with a Certificate of Authenticity. That was nice because I know so many out there just say they are natural Baltic amber. This is the real deal and I have the proof.

As soon as it arrived I put it on him. I was pleased with how stretchy it was. The color is beautiful, honey is an appropriate way to describe it. The pieces of amber are smooth, with no rough edges and are knotted between. It has an easy screw on/off clasp. This was wonderful as I was trying to put it on my crying 7 month old Teddy. It took mere seconds to attach. I know from trying another brand of anklet that this is not always the case.

Teddy started laughing at me, while he is usually a happy baby, today he was very fussy. He's had it on for a few hours now and I have noticed a change in his mood. While I can still tell he is teething, I've noticed a dramatic change in him putting things in his mouth. He also hasn't been crying, or screaming since. He's been laughing and playing with toys. During nap time he stayed asleep the entire time, and woke up happy and not fussing.

Another great benefit is that this necklace fits bigger children. My 2 year old Nikolas wanted to put it on and I let him. Nikolas has a very big head, in the 90th percentile so I wasn't sure it would fit. It fit him just as well as it fit Teddy. I wouldn't mind having another one for him.

I give this teething necklace a thumb's up! It's beautiful and effective. If you would like to try it for yourself you can find it on Amazon!

All thoughts in this post are my own honest opinion! All photographs in this post belong to PrimitiveGypsy and/or Lamb.

Baby Banana Brush Review and Giveaway Coming Soon!

How fun are these? I can't wait to give one a try. Teddy has been teething really bad lately and I am looking forward to reviewing a safe teething toothbrush that he will be able to test out! So many things these days are so bad for your baby, so I am glad to try something that is not. Not only is it soft and safe but it comes in such cute shapes. It also helps with teething and starts your baby on the right path to brushing!

These teething toothbrushes are 100% silicone. They are for infants through 2 years old. The company is family owned and operated. They strive to make brushing fun (and safer) with this which is their flagship product. The Baby Banana Brush, and their brand new product the Cornelius Teething Toothbrush are a sure hit! Baby Banana Brushes are wildly popular online (currently the #1 baby product on Amazon) Wouldn't they make a great Stocking stuffer for your baby? I know they will for mine!

Look for my review and a GIVEAWAY coming this month!
