Butt Bench Review and Giveaway

While doing a research paper for psychology I came across the Butt Bench website. I know your thinking how on earth did she come across a website like that while doing a research paper for psychology…lol. With developmental Psychology we are going through the life process and as our semester is coming to an end, so is our book. My assignment was on the older generation and trying to keep them safe. As our older generation is getting older we know their balances are getting unstable, if they fall they are more prone to breaking bones and the healing process is slow and they are more prone to infections.

The Butt Bench does not have those metal legs that take up space and looks like a “medical” device. Instead it is stylish and looks great. It sits right on top of your existing tub with nothing to install, just set the suction cups to keep from sliding. Super easy!!!

Ok so I’m not as old as I feel some days so I had other ideas for the Butt Bench. Ladies think of all the times your in the shower shaving your legs, for me it is such a pain twisting and turning. This bench makes a great place to sit without being uncomfortable. Plus it is big enough to keep everything right there next to you. The one thing Bill who I am working with did advise me, “If you do have children, please heed our warnings about lil’ boys diving off the seat”. My little guy is eight so for me it was not to much of a concern because he knows better, but it gives him a great place to put his tub toys and I now have less water on the floor.

I fell in love with the Pine Butt Bench, they also come in Pink, White and Ceder (which is currently sold out).

Butt benches measure 29 inches in length and will fit a standard size tub. There should be at least an inch of space on the sides of the tub where the Butt Bench can rest on, it also does not work on bathtubs over 60 years old, will not work on bathtubs with glass sliding doors. It holds up to 300 lbs.

We received our Butt Bench for this review and opinions are mine and mine alone. Right now you can order a Butt Bench for yourself or a loved one for starting at $29.99. You also have a chance to win one from our sponsor. Or purchase for someone you love, they will not be disappointed!!!

#9 The Great UGLee Pen! Review and Giveaway

                     The UGLee Pen, an ergonomic pen, is good for everyone who writes, and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing.  When I was first chosen to review the UGLee pen I had never even seen one. All I could think was, “Great I can carry an “ugly” pen around class to class”.  This was clearly a reason I stared doing reviews.  I’m a full time college student, I write a lot. Ok that’s an understatement I write so much I go though pens like kids go through chocolate milk.

UGLee pen

Ok I’ll admit the UGLee Pen! is really not an “ugly pen”. It has become like my best friend, I take it everywhere. Once I left class because I left it in the car, missing 10 mins of Psychology class was worth it because we take more lecture notes than any other class I have. This pen has more advantages than any pen I have ever used.

The Plus Sides to the UGLee Pen!

* It has an amazing grip that feels like jelly making writing much more bearable.

* If you drop it on the desk or on a book it will not roll away. (Actually the first time I dropped in on my book I had to peal it off, so not only is it a pen it has become my past time sitting though lectures)

* The ink seems to last a lot longer than normal pens. (Instead of going through 3 pens this week I just killed off my first UGLee pen)

The Disadvantages to the UGLee Pen!

Causes you to miss class time….ok really that’s all I have.

The Homework Caddy Review

School will be here before we know it, and as parents we are always looking for ways to make the school year more organized. As a mother of children in school, and a college student we have important papers scattered all over the table every night. I do not know how many important papers I have accidentally thrown away. Between four of us in school we each have our own calender of events, when homework is due and ect…. When I stumbled across The Homework Caddy it had my full interest to find out how it could help me keep the kids and myself better organized.


I’ll be the first to admit I am completely unorganized. So the first thing I notice with The Homework Caddy was the 4 pockets, Magnetic Dry Erase Board with notes and calendar section , a see through pocket that I will be able to list and see all my work in one place on one paper, and 2 smaller extra pockets I will be able to store extra index cards. and my favorite a holder for pens. I don’t know about you guys but my pens get up and walk away…ALL THE TIME.

Now think of all the things your kids could store in The Homework Caddy.  Notebooks, library books, keep important papers and dates. and there is even a holder on the bottom where they can roll up art work to keep it from getting lost or keep it from getting anything on it.

The Homework Caddy was created by a mother of three who needed a solution to the papers, books and school projects constantly accumulating her home. It addresses all the organization needs most school kids. Best of all takes up almost no space at all! It is designed to fit on the back of most standard bedroom or closet doors. It measures 28 inches wide by 36 inches tall. Turn unused wall space into a better organized space for you and your kids.

They come in 4 different designs.

<a rel=”nofollow” href=”″><img style=”display: none” src=”; /></a>

Noxicare Natural Pain Relief was formulated by Reza Ghorbani, MD, ABIPP, FIPP.  Noxicare products are natural remedies that have been proven to work for centuries.

Willow Bark Extract has been used to treat pain and inflammation since the time of ancient Egypt and Greece.

These are all the Extracts found in Nexicare Natural Pain Relief.


There were a few things I loved about the Nexticare Natural Pain Relief. First unlike most pain relief creams it did not have a smell. For the first time I was able to put something on and not want to gag all night. Second it is light weight and not greasy when you apply it. Third is I could feel it work, I mean really work. Forth I only had to apply it twice a day- once when I woke up and once before bed. It had a slight tingle and I knew right away when my pain in my wrist seemed to vanish.  I have since thrown away every other cream that has that claimed it would work.

This product had a few good uses not only did I use it for the pain I have in my wrist but I also found that it worked great on the kids mosquito bites and make them stop itching.

I highly recommend this product to everyone who has pains, and kids sports pain.

Dropps Laundry Detergent Review

I don’t know about you guys, but I love the laundry pods that came out a few years ago. No measuring, no mess and with this I do not want to hear those famous from the boyfriend or the kids “I can’t do it”.

Now up until a few weeks ago I have never heard of Dropps, seeing they came in pods I was more than happy to give them a try. The very first thing I noticed when I opened the package was it was smaller than any other laundry pod I have seen so I became a little reluctant that it could do the job of a “full size pod”.

It’s what got me next that really made me wonder about these “small pods”. When I through it in the washer I was expecting it to sink to the bottom so the water would hit it and dissolve, instead it went around and around and distributed the laundry soap evenly in the washer and produced more suds than a “full sized pod”.

The clear pod is a dropps while the blue pod is another leading brand.

The clear pod is a dropps while the blue pod is another leading brand.

I chose to go with Dropps scent + dye free for my bedding. Due to the fact I did not want to combined it with my fabric softener.


Dropps laundry pods are tough on spots and yet soft on clothes. I ended up just putting the blankets in the dryer without a dryer sheet to see if they came out any softer, and was surprised to find it did come out a bit softer and did not have any static cling. I loved this due to the fact it was one less chemical I will be able to live without.


I am not the only one who does laundry anymore. With the pods being so easy to use the kids can now help out without adding to much detergent. Plus no mess. The pods are 6x concentrated so your getting more in the small pod than a suggested size of laundry soap from a container which only contains 2x concentration.


These pods are much more convenient to store than the containers of laundry soap and smaller than the “normal sized pods”.  Pods dissolve leaving only the small bag it came in while  most leading laundry detergents leave behind a large jug.

I was able to go to the store locator on their site and find a store nearby, and was thrilled to find one, because this mom will use nothing else.

dropps even comes in fabric softener which I may give a try

Madison At Main Rug Review and Giveaway- Ended

I received a rug from Madison at Main for review. For my design I chose Early Spring Buds from the Jellybean collection. jellybean

Their rugs can be used as indoor/outdoor rugs and can be used just about anywhere. They have a very light non-slip grip on the back. I placed mine in front of my kitchen sink and was amazed by how thick and soft it was (can’t say it makes doing dishes any funner). With it being so soft it would make a great bath rug, or one to place by your door, or on your patio.
