@DkCanada Earthly Pleasures Boutique #EarthDay


With Earth Day being today, everyone is celebrating including our friends over at DK Canada. I absolutely love how many different books they have to help you and your family celebrate Earth Day. Each of their books offers you a chance to stop and appreciate the wonderful planet that we call home.



And for a limited time they are offering their love for the Earth titles at a 30% off discount. Not only are these books great to read for your love of the outdoors, but there are also books on gardening as well as a great selection of books for your kiddos.

I actually received a couple books I thought my kids would love. One was Outdoor Crafts, which has been perfect for us since we've been having so much nice weather lately. Not only are the crafts in this book easy, but they also allow my kids and I even more time to spend with each other. Filled with 80 pages of crafts, we'll be enjoying creating and cooking up some new goodies for us to enjoy together. 



Another book I received was the Smithsonian Animal Book. This is definitely an amazing book that has over 304 colorful pages filled with different animals and information about them for my children to learn. This will definitely be something both my kiddos will be reading and enjoying. They love animals and with a book filled with information about them, will only grow their love for animals.

Be sure to head on over to DK Canada's Earthly Pleasures sale now and get you and your family a few books to help celebrate Earth Day!

#Disney's Sofia The First: The Floating Palace DVD



Do YOU believe in mermaids? You will – when you set sail on a magical full-length adventure under the sea with Sofia the First! After Sofia helps a young mermaid named Oona, Sofia’s amulet grants her the power to transform into a mermaid and visit her new friend’s secret underwater kingdom. But when Cedric (disguised as a sea monster) plots to steal Oona’s enchanted Mermaid Comb, danger surfaces for both worlds. With a little help from special guest, Princess Ariel, Sofia embarks on an adventure to rescue Oona. Overflowing with oceans of song-filled fun – plus three more exciting episodes – Sofia the First: The Floating Palace proves that when families and friends work together, they can weather any storm and save the day!

MY REVIEW
I absolutely love the Sofia The First series. It's super cute and adorable and not just for little girls to watch, but for boys too. Even though my kiddos don't watch the show as often as they use to, they are still glued to the TV when it's on the screen. 

What my daughter and I loved about The Floating Palace was that we got a chance to see one of our favorite Disney Princesses, Ariel, helping out Sofia. It was such a great adventure to watch and we loved that the DVD came with a few more episodes to watch as well. If you have yet to introduce your little one to Sofia The First, be sure to check out the latest DVD, The Floating Palace, as it will have your kiddos loving this new princess!

Celebrating Earth Day w/ @KandooKids Flushable Wipes


Today is Earth Day, a day where we all demonstrate support for environmental protection. You can show your support by not only help cleaning up around where you live, but also by using green products that can help our environment.


One of the ways our household has been showing our green every day has been by using the Kandoo Flushable Wipes. We have been using these flushable wipes for years, ever since my oldest started potty training and I'm excited to share with you all that Just Us Girls is now a Kandoo Ambassdaor for the Kandoo products. I'll be sharing with you all for the rest of the year about the amazing products from Kandoo and how we use them in our home. 

Now, as I stated before, these flushable wipes have been used in our house ever since my oldest daughter who is now going on nine, started potty training. These wipes not only cleans 30% better than toilet paper, but they're also flushable and biodegradable, which is great considering you don't want to use anything that could clog up your toilet, sewer/septic.



Along with being safe for your toilet, they're also safe for your little ones to use. These wipes come in Sensitive as well that are hypoallergenic so that all little ones can use. I remember when both my little ones started potty training. My daughter loved getting on the potty and being a big girl. The Kandoo wipes helped a lot because they were moistened with lotion and weren't hard on her bum and they were easy for her to use. 

I'm very excited to not only share with you the Kandoo Flushable Wipes, but that we'll get to share with you over the rest of the year all of the products from Kandoo. Be sure to keep an eye out for more posts (and some giveaways) about us sharing our experience with Kandoo and all of their products!

Pound Puppies: A Perfect Match DVD (Review & Giveaway)



Not every puppy is perfect for every person, and the Pound Puppies are dedicated to making sure their furry friends end up in the right hands! Join Lucky, Cookie, Niblet, Strudel and Squirt as they continue on their mission to find a person for every pup with the release of Pound Puppies: A Perfect Match on DVD. Featuring five fun-filled adventures.


MY REVIEW
My kids absolutely love the show, Pound Puppies. They're still shocked that this is a remake of a cartoon that was out when I was younger. They always ask me if so and so were in the original series. It's cute to see how interested they are in both the new and original series. 

A Perfect Match not only is a great reminder for not just kids, but people in general to learn that not every dog is right for a person. They have to fit into your family just right and with A Perfect match the Pound Puppies are trying their best to help puppies get the perfect match for them. We just recently got a new pup in our family a couple of weeks ago. His name is Max, he's a Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) and I have to say, he definitely fits perfect in our family. He's silly and goofy just like the rest of us and I loved hearing my son make the connection from watching this DVD and the new addition to our family.

You can now get Pound Puppies: A Perfect Match on DVD for $9.99 by visiting ShoutFactory.
