Bluefoot Pirate Adventures ~ Discount

We just got back from a week of fun in Florida.  We spent the week on the beach with some activities in between and the sunshine was wonderful.  One of our excursions during our stay was to Bluefoot Pirate Adventures.  The boys were so excited to be going  on a real pirate ship.  I was excited to be going on a boat ride.


We booked a 1 pm cruise and arrived about 30 minutes early as suggested.  The pirates are waiting to greet you and provide some face, or in the case of my boys, arm painting.  They also provide you with pirate attire.  For an additional fee of $7 you can purchase a pirate sword, eye patch, and bandanna.


After everyone gets all their pirate goodies the kids are then taught the rules of being a pirate which I thought was adorable.  It is a super fun way for them to be safe since they are little and it is a boat.  They also teach them how to speak like a pirate which was fun but the kids quickly forgot.


Once on the boat Captain Chris put on a great show of entertaining the adults.  You learn about all the rich people that live in the area, and whether it is a yacht or a mansion he knows it all and it was very interesting.  It was my first sort of celebrity tour and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Plus there was a wonderful cool breeze in the back of the boat. 


The kids are entertained and kept busy by Pirate Rose.  She tells them the story of the treasure and the missing key.  The kids help direct the boat, and the best part is shooting the canons at the bad pirate, or occasionally anyone else that gets to close to our boat.


All in all it was a great time and a fabulous boat ride that I highly recommend if you are in the Fort Lauderdale area with children.  Can you tell how gorgeous the weather was?  If we lived in Florida I would definitely book these guys for my boys birthday party.  Chris wouldn't even take off his eye patch until bedtime.  This is a different one of a kind attraction that needs to be on your to do list.


Bluefoot Pirate Family Adventures children's pirate cruise in Fort Lauderdale. Where children and adults alike, come to experience the magic of a pirate cruise sailing in South Florida in search of treasure.

Come on a Bluefoot Pirate Family Adventures voyage as we take everyone into a world of treasure hunts and battles on the high seas!

Minbie - Nuturing Baby's Instincts ~ Review

Disclosure: I was provided with the products mentioned to facilitate my review but all opinions are my own.


When it comes to feeding baby it is not always an easy task.  I remember one of the most overwhelming tasks when setting up my baby registry was choosing a bottle.  You have no idea what the differences are and there is an overwhelming amount of bottles and nipples to choose from.  

Nursing is another task that that can be complicated at first but once you and your baby get into a feeding groove it can be the most wonderful experience ever.  The idea of introducing a bottle can sometimes be scary.  Will my baby accept it?  Will they still want to nurse?  All questions I asked myself.  But with going back to work only 5 weeks after giving birth I knew a bottle was inevitable.  

Minbie's significant breakthroughs:

Minbie nurtures a newborns ability to breastfeed by allowing newborns to bottle-feed with the instinctive feeding technique that they are born with.
Minbie supports a newborns digestion by helping to release natural digestive enzymes. This supports a baby's sleep too.


Minbie matches breast and bottle feeding techniques.

We passionately believe that you should be able to breastfeed and bottle-feed your baby.

To help you, we have created Minbie which is a teat designed to support your newborn's instinctive breastfeeding technique. This means that when newborns feed from Minbie they practice the instinctive latch and feeding-action for nurturing breastfeeding. This is a significant breakthrough in matching breast and bottle-feeding techniques and preventing feeding-confusion*.

For newborns who can not be breastfed, we created Minbie to allow them to bottle-feed with the instinctive breastfeeding technique that they are born with because why shouldn't they be able to feed intuitively with the technique that is developmentally right for them and that helps release digestive enzymes for proper digestion of the milk.

How is Minbie different than other teats?



Our research has found that generic and orthodontic bottle-teats can quickly teach newborns a different latch and feeding-action to the newborns natural instinctive breastfeeding technique. This may be sufficient for bottle feeding, but it can cause feeding confusion and problems such as a 'weak latch' and 'lazy feeding' when the baby is breastfeeding.

If your newborn has become used to other bottle-teats, he or she may have difficulty feeding from a Minbie teat. This may be an indication that your baby's instinctive feeding technique has been damaged.
Every feed counts ...


My friends baby was set to review this item for me but due to a family emergency you are just going to have to take my word!  I love that this is a simple bottle no extra parts.  Even though it is simple the nipples innovative design looks phenomenal.  This is a product I wish I had with my boys because it may have helped with the difficultly I had getting my boys to nurse. 


Use Minbie as the first and only bottle teat for your baby to help maintain and strengthen your baby's instinctive breastfeeding technique, the way nature intended. Minbie products are from Australia but they subsidise shipping to the US only charging $7.95AUD ($6.20USD)

Renuzit Pearl Scents ~ Review & Giveaway

Disclosure:   The Renuzit brand provided me with a sample of Renuzit Pearl Scents in exchange for a product review.  However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.



I am a huge fan of scents in the home and I am obsessed with trying out new products. From the living room to the bathroom you will find all sorts of scented products throughout my home.  As soon as I got Renuzit Pearl Scents I knew it was going straight into our first floor bathroom.  


I placed it on top of the cabinet that is in the bathroom and it is sensational!!  When I got home from work today and walked through my back door instead of that stinky dog smell I was greeted by a pleasant scent that reminded me of a field of flowers.  I got to sample Blue Sky Breeze and it is wonderful.


I have a very good reason for where I placed my Renuzit Pearl Scents and it is the beads.  I have the hardest time resisting the urge to touch them.  Ok, I touched them.   I just had to, they look like something fun to touch and they are!  Which is why they are up high.  I can see my two curious little boys having a blast with this so it is out of their sight.  The scent is wonderful though and I love how it looks.  Plus it requires no effort you just take off the seal, screw the top on and voila.


Give your home another depth of beauty with the pleasing aromas of Renuzit Pearl Scents.  The new look was designed to accent and highlight your home decor as well as provide long-lasting freshness.

Renuzit Pearl Scents are now available in these aromas:

  • Blue Sky Breeze
  • Serenity
  • Sparkling Rain
  • Tranquil
  • Seductive Pineapple
