Polly Pineapple Teething Toy - Soothe Your Child and Feed Another

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Meet Polly Pineapple, an all-natural, multi-texture rubber teething toy that will help soothe a child’s gums through all stages of the teething process. Polly was created by gnomgnoms, who is on a mission to soothe the aching gums of teething babies while striving to alleviate childhood hunger in the United States. For every Polly Pineapple purchased, they will make a donation to a leading national hunger nonprofit to help feed a hungry child for an entire week - that’s 21 meals!
Polly’s various textures, from her smooth hands and feet to her nubby body and crown, help to massage sore gums. Her crown and feet can be used to soothe hard-to-reach back molars while her body and hands are perfect for front gums. At 7 inches tall x 5 inches wide, Polly is the perfect size for easy maneuvering. You can use Polly’s built-in loop to secure her to a stroller or carrier so that she is always within reach and doesn’t get lost.
Polly is made from 100% natural rubber and she is free of dangerous chemicals like BPA, PVC, and phthalates. Polly is decorated with food grade paint, so babies are free to safely teeth and chew with abandon. She is hand-painted so each teething toy is unique. Polly Pineapple has been certified to conform to U.S. safety regulations according to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and Consumer Product Safety Commission.
I showed Polly Pineapple to my eight-month old grandson and he squealed and reached out to hold it. He smiled and grabbed hold, turning her over and over, feeling her bumps with his hands and fingers. He hooked his thumb through the loop to hold Polly securely and she is just the right size for him. Polly is slightly squishy and somewhat soft, while still maintaining its shape.
My grandson has two tiny baby teeth on the bottom and I suspect he may be trying to push a few out on the top soon. Polly Pineapple's crown is the perfect spot for him to gnaw on and he's been extremely happy gumming on this teether. It's such a cute toy and the bright yellow is very eye-catching. Polly is definitely baby-approved and nana-approved!

But First, Cakebites

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I have just discovered my newest obsession - Cakebites! They are so incredibly delicious and they are the perfect little snack with my coffee. All the cake in just one bite! Cakebites Classic Italian Rainbow multi-colored cake has a very unique almond flavor, sandwiched in between raspberry jelly, and coated in scrumptious dark chocolate. I had never tasted anything like it and I now am totally hooked!
I received a box that includes four individual grab-and-go packs, each containing three Cakebites. They are so delicious that it's a good thing they come in little packs of three, because it makes it a bit easier not to eat the entire box in one sitting. It's a fabulous little indulgence with my coffee that gives me just a few minutes of "me time." Cakebites are the perfect holiday gift idea and a great hostess gift. If you haven't tasted Cakebites, you are missing out!
You MUST try them!

Get Instant Curb Appeal with a Wreath

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
There are many ways to add curb appeal to your home. You could spend hundreds of dollars or more on landscaping your plant beds, painting the exterior of your house, or installing two dozen solar lights. The easiest and least expensive way to give your home a new look is by hanging a beautiful silk floral wreath on your front door. By selecting a wreath made from silk flowers, you can be assured it will be beautiful for years to come.
Choose a wreath with fullness and color. When deciding upon what colors you'd like in your wreath, select colors that contrast with the front door color so that the wreath stands out. Pastel colors will create a soft look, whereas bright colors will provide more of a "pop" to your curb appeal. This Hydrangea Wreath from Silk Plants Direct looks incredibly realistic and gives a warm, welcoming feel to my front door. My curb appeal style tends to lean more to the farmhouse look and this wreath is the perfect decor for the entryway to my home. It took me all of thirty seconds to change the curb appeal on my home. This wreath is perfect for any time of year and looks great against the white door.
These Silk Flowers were provided by the good folks at CSI Wall Panels. Thank you!

It's finally time for my favorite season - BOOT season! There are no shoes I love to wear more than my boots and I am beyond excited about the new fall styles at Waldlaufer. I just received a pair of their Iris Hoja Black Elefant boots and they are incredible!
These women's boots come in either black or khaki. The black boots have a gray sole and the khaki boots have a tan sole. They are made of a natural, soft, textured leather with a TPU flexible sole for traction. These boots also feature an ankle buckle for style and a calf strap of velcro with a snap design.
The interior is lined with soft, fuzzy, natural wool to keep feet and legs toasty warm even on the coolest of autumn days. They also have a zipper on the inner side to make them very easy to put on and take off. I have thicker calves than I'd like to admit and I am very happy that these boots allow me plenty of room.
The Iris Hoja Black Elefant boots are amazingly comfortable! I can wear these all day long without any discomfort at all. The heel is just slightly elevated for comfortable walking and standing. These boots look adorable with skirts, slacks, leggings, and jeans. They are both casual and dressy, making them perfect for all my fall and winter outfits.
