Introducing Snoopy's Sister Belle! A New Line of Girl's Apparel from Evy of California | Review + A Giveaway


Disclosure: I received the following items mentioned in this post at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and were not influenced. 


When I think about my favorite Peanuts Gang character, Snoopy is hands the winner! As as a kid I loved seeing him be goofy and funny in Charlie Brown movies, and today my kids enjoy watching him as well. I was recently asked to review Evy of California's new clothing line of Belle, Snoopy's Little Sister, and as soon as we saw the adorable outfits we just knew we would love them and want to tell all of you about adorable Belle!


Belle is clearly such a fashionista and we just love that her personality shines through on the outfits we received. The first thing my daughter noticed that she loved (besides cute Belle) was all of the sparkles-- what little girl doesn't love sparkles?!

We love that this clothing line is very comfortable and easy to lounge in, but at the same time great to wear out to go shopping and to dinner!

Since my daughter is on the petite and thin side, we chose a size 5 (she just turned 6 in mid-August). Everything fits her perfectly and we couldn't be happier with the fit on each clothing item. This particular apparel line from Evy of California is available in size 2T-6.


All three outfits washed great--no shrinking or loosing of the sparkles, which is obviously very important as no girl wants to loose the sparkles on her clothing!

Overall, we are very happy with all 3 outfits and my daughter has been walking around like she is living in a fashion show! She absolutely adores Belle and looks super cute wearing her and these comfy clothes!

Win It: One of our readers are going to win an outfit in their choice, in the size of their choice (2T-6)

#PeanutFree Halloween Themed Desserts and Candy

#spon: I'm required to disclose a relationship between our site and Intel. This could include the Intel Corporation providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.

It's that time of year again when the spooky carved pumpkins, fun and scary costumes and Halloween decorations are displayed for all to see. Trick or Treat is a yearly event that kids everywhere love to do, but for kids who have peanut allergies it can sometimes become a disappointment when they can't eat most if not any of the candy they are given. 

As a mom with a daughter with a severe peanut allergy, I whipped out my ASUS Memo Pad 7, one of the awesome Intel Tablets there are, to search for peanut free candy options, as well as other peanut free treats that would be safe to have a kids Halloween party.


After browsing on Pinterest I found a fun treat called Ghost Pops-- sunbutter drops coated in shredded coconut! 


Thanks to my handy Intel Tablet, I was able to find so many great peanut free desserts and treats that my daughter is for sure going to love! 

Looking for peanut free candy to hand out to trick or treaters? 

Here are some candies that have nut-free labels on them, guaranteeing them to be safe for nut allergies – Tootsie Roll Company brand items (which includes Tootsie Rolls, Junior Mints, Charms, and Caramel Apple Pops), York Peppermint Patties, Skittles, Starburst, or Jolly Ranchers.

Then you will be excited to know that CRYSTAL LIGHT and Miranda Lambert are partnering to launch the Platinum Points Program to reward CRYSTAL LIGHT customers with fun Miranda Lambert gear! The Platinum Points Program coincides with Miranda Lambert’s Platinum Tour Presented by CRYSTAL LIGHT!

Platinum Program members can enter the Promo Code “mirandaic” to instantly start them off with 30 free points. Also, members will receive 10 points for each friend they refer who signs up, so you can really start racking up those points!

We recently visited our local Walmart to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT so that we could start earning Platinum Points since we are a big Miranda Lamber fan! I quickly was able to locate which isle the CRYSTAL LIGHT was in, because are no strangers to drinking CRYSTAL LIGHT and shopping at Walmart. I decided to buy the following CRYSTAL LIGHT products...


CRYSTAL LIGHT Peach Iced Tea has always been a favorite of mine, but I have never tried their Peach-Mango Green Tea so I thought I would give that a try. I also purchased Sweet Tea, Fruit Punch and Pink Lemonade for my kids since they love those those drinks so much! Another new item that I have never tried before is their CRYSTAL LIGHT Liquid, which you add to a glass of water or water bottle. I have been loving the flavor I chose, which is Blackberry Lemonade! Yum!

Signing up to be a Platinum member was very simple to do. In no time at all I was a member and quickly earned 500 points with the purchase I made. Once I got home from my Walmart shopping trip, I took a picture of my Walmart receipt and uploaded it to the Platinum Points website. I received a text and an email alerting me my receipt was accepted and is now being processed and verified, which will then be rewarded to my account. Earning those 500 points was so easy, and I can't wait to start earning more...you know why? I really want to work my way up to a Platinum Rhinestone Ladies T-shirt worth 1200 points! I'm almost half way there! Or, if I am feeling in a different mood down the road, maybe I'll save 8000 points and receive a signed guitar from Miranda Lambert!! Ahhh, how awesome would that be?!

As I mentioned before, I am a big Miranda Lambert fan-- my favorite song of hers is "Platinum"! Not only do I like her music, but I also love that she, as well as CRYSTAL LIGHT, promote a healthy lifestyle, which is why they make such a great team for the Platinum Points Program! We have really been enjoying the CRYSTAL LIGHT drinks we purchased, and hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to win cool Miranda Lambert songs, swag and apparel!

VTech Innotab Learning Cartridges | Review + A Giveaway

Disclosure: The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech at no cost. All opinions are my own.


As you may remember, we very recently reviewed an Innotab 3 Plus learning tablet by VTech, and also gave away one to one of our readers. I'm happy to say that we now are going to feature and give away two of VTech's newest learning cartridges, teaching Language Arts!  

Parents can extend the play value of their VTech toys by purchasing new Learning Cartridges for InnoTab Learning Tablets. A range of educational cartridges are available, offering age-appropriate games, e-Books and more that allow children to progressively learn key subjects such as math, reading and science in steady stages. Interactive e-Books teach reading and vocabulary, while creative activities and camera fun inspire children’s imaginations. The cartridges are compatible with all current InnoTab models and will also work with new models that will be released later this year, including the InnoTab MAX, its fastest Wi-Fi tablet yet and its first to feature Android™ learning content.

To review with our Innotab 3 Plus, we were sent the Learn to Write with Cody & Cora learning cartridge, and the Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Busy Day in Alphabet Town learning cartridge!


VTech Innotab cartridges fit into any and all Innotab models. In my son's Innotab 3 Plus, it easily slides into the back.


InnoTab® Learn to Write with Cody & Cora learning cartridge
(Ages 3-6 years; MSRP: $24.99)
-  Go on learning adventures with Cody the Smart Cub™ and Cora the Smart Cub™ in Learn to Write with Cody & Cora for InnoTab. Read the e-Book about an adventure Cody and Cora take while writing and spelling words.
-  Learn and develop handwriting skills in a progressive manner with 11 activities and games.
-  Includes a fun e-Book about an adventure with Cody and Cora


The Learn to Write with Cody and Cora cartage is recommended for pre-K and Kindergartners and I couldn't agree more. My daughter is in first grade and is well advanced with playing the writing games, but it still entertains her. My son is starting to recognize letters and numbers, so this has been great for him, even though it may be a little advanced for him (he is 2 1/2 years old). I really like that it teaches children how to write letters properly and rewards them for doing so. The e-book "Cody and Cora's Special Marker" is cute-- whatever you spell with the marker, it then becomes real. My  kids love the story and have been listening to it almost everyday since we got this learning cartridge. 

InnoTab® Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Busy Day in Alphabet Town learning cartridge
(Ages 2-5 years; MSRP: $24.99)
-  Explore Alphabet Town with Casey, Paul, Frank and Cyrus in the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Busy Day in Alphabet Town game for InnoTab. Read about their adventure in the e-Book or join the residents of Alphabet Town as they build roads, rescue kittens and more in fun learning games.
- This InnoTab software title features nine creative activities and learning games that teach letters, numbers and more.



My son loves cars and trucks, plus he has a few of the Go! Go! Smart Wheels play set, so when he saw the new Go! Go! Smart Wheels Busy Day in Alphabet Town, his face lit up! My son has really been enjoying his letters and numbers in the fun games this learning cartridge has. The Mechanic Shop, Catch the Letter Thief, Fire Truck Rescue, and Letter Construction are just a few games that my son loves to play. There is also an e-book that my son loves to "read" (it reads it for him since he can't read yet of course).


Overall, I think these learning cartridges are great to have for children and I'm so happy my kids can play with these games in their Innotab 3 Plus. Learning does not have to be a boring thing, and VTech has found yet again how to make kids smile and play while learning!

Connect: Stay connected with VTech Toys on FacebookTwitter and Pinterest!

Buy it: You can purchase the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Busy Day in Alphabet Town and the Learn to Write with Cody and Cora learning cartridges each for $24.99 on VTech Kid's website.
