Review: Palm Beach Green Sterling Anabella Curtains

I was recently given the chance to review a set of Palm Beach Green Sterling Anabella curtains (retail value $650) from BabyBeddingZone.  The curtains are made of 100% Egyptian cotton and are 100% washable - which is PERFECT for a child's room!  The Palm Beach curtains include 2 white pique drapery panels with scalloped edge trim in blue, pink, or green. They're 96" long, have a rod pocket top, and are lined with white cotton. They also include double sided tie backs in white pique with accent color on the reverse.


When I received the package in the mail, I was surprised at how heavy the curtains were.  Being thick and made of 100% Egyptian cotton, these curtains are not the thin wispy curtains you would buy at a cheap chain-store.  I knew the curtains would be 96" but I did not fully grasp how huge that was.  Since my son is 7 months old and grabs EVERYTHING, at this time we need to keep the curtains out of reach so he does not pull on them and rip the curtain rod from the wall and hurt himself, so the length was a little bit of an issue but if you have a sewing machine - you can easily tack them up or you can just raise the curtain rod a little.  If your child is a few years old or more, length will not be as much of an issue.  Being a beautiful white, it is highly beneficial that these curtains are 100% washable and do not require dry cleaning.  The curtains have a nice thickness to help keep some light out of the room during nap time.  The valance is not available for purchase online which is a shame since it would have been a nice touch to the curtains.  

Available for purchase at $65 at BabyBeddingZone, these curtains are definitely worth their value.  Regular retail value is $650 so $65 is a steal!  BabyBeddingZone has other adorable curtains as well.  Check them out here!

Review: Qwik Shower Big Wet Wipes

I was given the opportunity to review a small sample pack of Qwik Shower Big Wet Wipes.  When I received the package in the mail, I was surprised at how large they were!  The 10x12 wipes are larger than paper towel sheets...and pretty thick too!  They come premoistened so you don't even have to search for a sink or water bottle.  

With a 6 month old in the house, we always have something to clean.  I used the wipes to clean off his bumbo seat, high chair, his ABC mat on the floor, and they worked great.  These wipes will be great to keep in the diaper bag or my purse.  If I don't need a full one - I can just tear it and use part of one and save the rest for later.  The wipes are also safe to wipe yourself down after working out in the yard or even exercising.

The wipes are available for purchase and right now you can get them shipped for free.

Review: Boot Stroot

When I first heard of the Boot Stroot, my first thoughts were that it was just another cheesy product like a lot of the "As seen on tv" items.  Lately I've been realizing there's a lot of genius behind products like this; they are so simple yet so helpful!!!  After trying the Boot Stroot, I decided it is a MUST-HAVE this winter!  

The Boot Stroot holds your pants in place so your jeans never ride up your leg!  Stand, sit, dance or run; the Boot Stroot ensures that your pants stay where they belong! They are available in brown, blue or black.  

I received a set of brown Boot Stroots to try and review.  I did not have a pair of boots to try them with but what girl doesn't like an excuse to go shoe shopping? ;)  The Boot Stroots are small so they fit in my purse while I headed to a shoe store to go boot shopping! 

I found a pair of boots in my size that I liked and got my Boot Stroots out.  Within seconds, I had them wrapped around my pant legs right above my ankles, holding the pant leg down and tight to my legs.  When I tried on a pair of boots, I realized the genius behind the Boot Stroots.  I don't have the figure to wear "skinny jeans" at this time so my jeans would have otherwise bunched up and looked ridiculous with boots over them.  With the Boot Stroots, I actually felt comfortable wearing boots with my jeans and my jeans stayed down as I walked around!  When you are done with them, they are as easily removable as they were to put on! 

I would definitely pay $8.99 for a set of Boot Stroots instead of buying all new jeans.  They work wonders and are so simple!  I tried on a few more pairs of boots before I found a pair I wanted to buy and the Boot Stroot stayed in place the whole time.

Visit the Boot Stroot website to order your own pair of Boot Stroots for this winter!
