Jiva Cubes Review/Giveaway

Jiva Cube uses high-quality Colombian coffee and then they combine it with raw, unrefined cane sugar to form a cube (think sugar cube with coffee). They  also make Hot Chocolate cubes by combining cacao powder made from Colombian Criollo beans and raw, cane sugar; Panela. Their products are Vegan, Gluten Free, Kosher, Fair Trade and have no chemicals or preservatives.
Jiva Cubes are a cool product that gives you the option of turning plain-old tap water into a nice and flavorful cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Jiva Cubes also work in milk, for that extra creamy cup of hot cocoa or enriched-cream coffee. Jiva Cubes offer a new and convenient way to a fresh cup of coffee, with very little wait.

Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Big Help DVD Review @FHEInsiders #BerryBigHelp

It's time for everyone to help out as best they can in these three delightful Strawberry Shortcake episodes. It's Strawberry to the rescue in "Babysitter Blues" when the princess asks her to look after a very special Baby Berrykin. Orange and Lemon take on the role of "Fashion Elves" in "A Stitch of Time" to help Raspberry with her fashion design dreams. And there's no place like home when Orange adopts a bitty fish that turns out to be a homesick tadpole. Join in the sparkly fun as the girls learn that lending a helping hand can be a berry big deal indeed!

Strawberry shortcake: the berry big help is a Strawberry Shortcake special that contains 3 episodes. Each of the episodes are fun-filled romps that all little girls will enjoy. “Babysitter Blues” is an exciting story of Strawberry watching baby Berrykin. “A stitch of Time” is a fashioned themed episode that is full of fun. The last is the story of a fish that turns out to be a tadpole, a perfect plot-twist for the little ones. 

Strawberry shortcake has received a modernized look lately. My youngest daughter bounces and giggles as she watches the dvd. My oldest has outgrown Strawberry Shortcake, but will still watch with her baby sister. These movies are always packed with positive emotions, important lessons, and of course, plenty of adventure. 


Bring home the berry big help for your little ones, or a little one that you may know. These colorful episodes have been the favorite of so many different little girls and the tradition is worth carrying on.

Beyoncé believes a woman’s power comes from within and when a woman connects with her very essence, she revels in her individuality, her strength, and her beauty.

Okiedog Diaper Bag Review/Giveaway 'Baby Gift Guide'


There are several things that happen to be a must have when you have a baby. Diaper Bags are the one thing that you always need no matter what when you leave the house on any trip whether it is short or long. However, if you are like me you like the smaller diaper bags for when you are going on those short trips to maybe the post office. Then you have the bigger bags for when you are going on long trips to the mall or a doctor visit. I am also one that loves the fashionable diaper bags that resemble the look of a purse I would carry on a daily basis. 

I recently had the opportunity to work with Okiedog on a diaper bag review. They sent me a diaper bag that is exactly what I expect a diaper bag to look like and it offers everything I could want in a diaper bag. 

Okiedog offers several different styles and colors in diaper bags. Not only does Okiedog offer diaper bags but they also offers products for young kids and babies. There are also Changing bags (also called Nappy Bags), and stroller accessories.
