HGG:: Calzico

We are ecstatic to have Calzico as a part of our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide!

I truly love the concept behind their clothing. As a tween mom myself, I know first hand how difficult it can be to find clothes that are stylish, age apprpriate and fit well for girls during those in-between years. And, my daughter loves to be comfortable so it can be quite a challenge to find clothes that make the both of us happy.

Designed by a mom and her tween, CALZICO brand for tween girls includes versatile pieces with convertible or reversible features in sizes 6-8 through 12-14. With just-right stretch, serious comfort, and clever styles, girls will feel confident to choose well and wear often. Visit the full collection of globally inspired artwork tees, layered skirts, and reversible dresses and jackets online, and be the hero of your tween and her wardrobe this holiday.

I love Calzico because it meets all of our requirements, fit, comfort, style. My daughter loves her gray/coral reversible dress. She usually wears it with the pop of color, but can also wear it all gray. It's comfortable, looks good and is easy to care for.

I highly recommend Calzico for all of your tween girl clothing needs. You won't be disappointed! In addition to their website, you can look them up on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and Twitter.

HGG:: Christmas Pajamas!

Each and every year I purchase coordinating Christmas pajamas for our children. It's been a fun tradition since they were all babies. Typically, we wrap them up and that is the one present they are allowed to open on Christmas Eve.

Every year it gets a little harder to find coordinating jammies that are approved by my 12-year-old boy and still look cute on the 6-year-old. This year, i was so thrilled when Butterfly Designs by Kristi came to the rescue. Butterfly Designs was featured in our Holiday Gift Guide last year and I absolutely LOVED the Santa bags I bought there. This year, when Kristi agreed to sponsor our gift guide with personalized Christmas pajamas, I was so excited.

The pajamas themselves come in a variety of sizes all the way up to adult, so there were no issues getting the sizes that I needed. Also, they were a cute, classic color combination that all three kids were happy with.

The best part? They are completely unique. Kristi personally created several design choices for me to pick from. They were all cute and we were able to customize my daughter's a little more and give her some glitter to stand apart from the boys :)

They are great quality pieces and have washed up nicely. I would definitely recommend Butterfly Designs by Kristi. She can personalize almost anything!

How to Arrange a Bedroom for Children

I bet that parents all over the world share the same battle cry with me: “Kids, clean your bedroom!”

As a mom myself, my children’s bedroom is where I usually find exhausting and challenging to arrange and keep tidy.

While festive events such as holidays or birthdays give me the motivation to clean and organize things, I still couldn’t calm the clutter. But that was before! I am still no expert in this, but my continuous effort (and battle) somewhat taught me important things when arranging the kids’ bedroom.

Get Down to Their Level

I think we should take this tip literally. Getting down to my child’s eye level allows me to view their room the way they see it. I realize that for me to arrange their room, my solutions must fit their skills and needs.

  • What most adults like us forget is that our ways and means of organization does not translate to younger children’s ways. Their dressers or drawers might be too large or too heavy for them to manage.
  • Closet hangers could be out of reach or won’t fit their tiny clothes.
  • Toy containers might be too high for them to segregate toys accordingly.

What could be “organized” to them might not pass your standards (not even half of it) so look at it from their vantage point, so you’ll be on the same page with them.

Let the Kids Decide

It is important to hear what your children say. Engage them in making decisions on what stuffs to stay and what goes. You will be surprised how this could help your organization goals easier to achieve. Let us look at this cleaning and organizing thing as a learning activity rather than a task or errand.

Most importantly, expect for it to be a trial and error activity. Soon, you and your child will determine what works for the both of you and what could be the root of the problem.

Try to develop a checklist that your child can follow. I will try to devise my own soon and allow my kids to take part according to their skills and needs. Hence, involving them makes it possible for them to understand why to keep their room clean and organized.

Do it one at a time

Consider organizing the sections mentioned above one at a time. Tailor your efforts of de-cluttering their room until it makes sense to them. Focus on a single zone and find out what falls into the category of donating it, keep it or store it.

Again, doing this whole thing could be overwhelming to your children thus, give the kids and yourself an ample time to sort out stuff.

Typically, a child’s room is composed of the following zones: toys, clothing, school stuff such as books and papers and other random things like memorabilia, souvenirs from parties or uncategorized gifts.

Instead of giving them “threats” or having that deadly stare, we should exert all our efforts to teach them organization skills and methods. I also learned that my supposed-to-be sad face wouldn't help.

Practice and Patience Please!

Times can get rough, and a messy room could be one of the least issues you want to deal with thus, the more important it is to teach your children the process of organizing and tidying their rooms.

Regardless how fancy your containers and storage boxes are, kids won’t use them accordingly if they don’t understand why and how to use them. Start the soonest possible. Have you tried any of these techniques? Bet they’d helped you a lot!

Epson Unveils Workforce Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer

I recently had the opportunity to review the new Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank printer. I am always impressed when I receive a new Epson printer and they always provide top-notch printing and ease of use for my home office. I'm not an overly technical person, so I like that they are easy to set up and operate.

Plus the speed and print quality are amazing. However, I think, the best part about this printer is that you rarely have to worry about running out of ink! The printer comes with enough ink for two years right in the box and there aren't cartridges that you have to constantly change.That's enough ink to print up to 8,500 pages! I know many of you probably print more than I do, but it's going to take me a long time to go through that much ink! That's equivalent to 50 ink cartridges; so think of how much time and money we'll be saving without buying and changing cartridges constantly.

The printer is fast and I never have any issues with it keeping up with my demand. It prints double-sided, which I love and it's conntected to my wireless network; allowing me to print from my laptop, smartphone and tablet. It's very convenient and provides exactly what I need for my home office.

From Epson::

Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer – designed for the small office/home office market, this printer offers an in-box ink yield of up to 11,000 black and 8,500 color pages and fast print speeds of up to 13.7 ISO ppm (black) and 7.3 ISO ppm (color). The ET-3600 is packed with an unbeatable combination of convenience and value, boasting auto 2-sided printing, a 150-sheet paper capacity and offering wireless printing from tablets and smartphones.

Pricing and Availability

The WorkForce Expression ET-3600 EcoTank ($399 MSRP) will be available mid-September 2016 through major computer, office and electronic superstores and www.epsonstore.com. For more information and availability, please visit www.epson.com/ecotank.

Product Review:: Krazy Words & More!

It's that time of year again when I'm asked to review some new toys and games from BRIO, Ravensburger and Wonder Forge! Admittedly, because of so many things happening in my professional and personal life, I'm a bit behind this time :( Before Easter, I was sent these great products to review. And, although we've played with them several times since, I'm just now getting around to posting my review.

As always, they didn't disappoint. My 11 and 10 year-olds have been having so much fun with the Krazy Words game. They love the Apples to Apples style where they have to guess their opponents responses. This game is great for language skills because it requires them to create words that they think mean a certain thing, and then guess others' creations. We've had a lot of fun creating and guessing.

More from their site: GARBUNA? What is that!? An "Australian marsupial"? A "brand of chocolate bar"? Or perhaps "somebody remarkably smart"? This crazy word fits only one of the task cards on the table. It may sound or look like it fits multiple cards, but it's up to you to guess the correct one! In this outrageous game of weird words, you'll want to put your creativity and quick-wittedness into high gear to win!

We were also sent My First Take Along Set from BRIO. This, we requested to share with our small nephews that LOVE trains! This set was perfect for them (ages 1 &2). It's easy to manuever and compact for clean up purposes. The boys have enjoyed playing with it and interchanging it with their other train sets. I am always impressed by BRIO's high quality products and this one was no different. It is very sturdy and well made; great for toddlers!

More from their site: A play bag with bright colours, just for you! Take it along when travelling or visiting and play wherever you want. Just open the bag and drive the bell wagon down the track. Fun to use and easy to store.

You can read our past posts and reviews about several more games and toys by BRIO, Wonder Forge and Ravensburger, here.
