The blankZ - A reusable toy that lets your kids be creative

The blankZ  are a patent pending plush toy created by Glenn Rudin, founder of Always Been Creative Inc. What makes blankZ unique? You can color your blankZ, wash it in your washing machine, and start all over again.  The blankZ are available for sale at the company website HERE and at select retailers also listed on the company website.

There are seven different blankZ animals available right now and each blankZ comes with instructions and five special markers for use in coloring your blankZ. The Series 1 styles of blankZ available include Bare (bear), Un-sealed (seal), Ele-Faint (elephant), Bare Hare (rabbit), Bloink (pig), No Bully (cow), and White Hound (dog). The blankZ are reasonably priced at $13.99 per kit (plush animal, drop card, and markers).

                          Un-Sealed blankZ and markers

I received the Un-Sealed (seal) blankZ for review purposes and my sons really enjoy it, especially my preschooler. Unlike a coloring book where you are supposed to stay within the lines when coloring, with the blankZ children can color any way they want and if they don't like the results you can just wash it and let them start over again. And younger children really like being able to actually color on a stuffed animal since they are usually told not to use crayons and markers on their toys. The blankZ seal I received is very durable and made of good material, we have washed it seven times already with no signs of fraying or wear and tear.

I really like the clever concept of this toy and the planning that went in to it along with the endless possibilities for kids to express themselves creatively. One reader of Miss Jackie's Views is going to win a blankZ of their choice from the Series 1 line! Entry is easy in the Rafflecopter form below. Winner will be notified via email. Sponsor is responsible for delivery of prize.

Disclosure: I received a sample of blankZ to facilitate my review. I only recommend products I personally use and my opinions remain my own.

The latest trend in shopping Me-Ality

I read about this really cool service called me-ality the other day. Have you ever noticed the disparity in sizes between clothing lines/stores? I'm a size 2 in Liz Claiborne, a size 4 in Old Navy and a size 8 in Gap clothing. The me-ality lets you know what your true size is for each designer/store. You step in to a scanner and in ten seconds it matches your measurements with clothes that will flatter your body shape. The me-ality is available at various malls throughout the country and a personal shopping guide for each store in the mall you are at is provided. I always spend a lot of time looking for stores that have anything in petite sizes and am really excited about this! No more wasting time going from store to store and looking through racks the personalized shopping guide will tell you which stores in the mall have your sizes, what size you wear in that stores clothing, and will give you recommendations on what pieces to buy at each store for different style looks. Watch the video above and go check out me-ality HERE to learn more and find a location near you.

If anyone has heard of me-ality or tried it leave a comment please, I'm really curious about this service.

hbl Hair Care

There are a lot of hair care  products/lines on the market and it seems like every day there is a new one and it's hard to tell whether they are beneficial or healthy for you and your hair. hbl Hair Care products are formulated to prevent thinning and hair and restore hair without the use of damaging chemicals. Patrick Dockry, developer of hbl Hair Care and hair stylist, set out to create a product to help those with hair loss/damage due to the side effects of chemotherapy after his own brother battled non-Hodgkins lymphoma and several friends were diagnosed with cancer. 

Unjunk Your Junk Food - Guest Book Review

                                  Image from Amazon.com and for demonstration purposes only, no infringement intended.
This is a guest post contributed by my blogger friend Gracie over at Gracie's Spacie:

While everyone I know plus their sisters, mothers and nieces are reading 50 Shades of Grey, here I am reading Unjunk Your Junk Food.

Nerdy?  No.  

Boring?  Never.

Smart? Absolutely.

I have always been conscientious of my health.  I exercise.  I eat healthy.  I journal my calories.  The result?  I've kept off 17 extra unwanted pounds for the past 5 years.  

So when I was given the opportunity to review the book "Unjunk Your Junk Food" I was stoked!  After all, it was pinned on my Pinterest as "A MUST READ BOOK!"

I learned so much reading the book but before I get into the specifics, let me just say this is an EASY read.  Kudos to the authors, Andrea Donsky and Randy Boyer for the layout of this book.  On one side of the book (the left side if you will) you will find the "bad choices" of foods you should avoid.  On the other side (the right side ironically) you will find the "approved" choices.  

What I like about this book is that there ARE other choices to choose from.  Most diet books, magazines, etc. tell you what you should avoid.  PERIOD. They seldom give you an alternative for the bad food and if they do, it is something you can only find on the planet Mars.  

Here are my favorite SHOCKERS that were on the naughty list:
  • Crystal Light (aspartame a/k/a artificial sweeteners are a NO NO!) 
  • Diet Pepsi (along with the aspartame this soda also contains potassium benzoate which is a preservative)
  • Skinny Cow (this cut deep for me!) (contains partially hydrogenated oils, i.e. trans fats and high fructose corn syrup) - trans fat in a skinny cow? It just doesn't mesh.
  • Life Savers SUGAR FREE Hard Candy (say it isn't so!) (contains artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners and artificial colors) - this candy isn't saving any lives with all that fake!
I could go on and on about more junk food favorites that are in this book but I won't be the bearer of ALL bad news....

The good news is there are healthy alternatives to each favorite junk food we have stashed away in our cupboards.  The authors provide an easy index in the back of the book to quickly locate if an item you have in stock or are buying is on the approved list.  I used this index the other day to quickly find that YAY! BALANCE BARS ARE ON THE APPROVED LIST!  (If anyone hasn't tried those you are missing out on a healthy alternative to a candy bar!)  

As a health nut, I've seen many others try to mimic what the authors of this book attempt to bring their readers.  Here's the difference:  These authors take the time to not only point out what items are bad but also tell you WHY they are bad and then offer you alternatives.  Usually I see something like: BAD: milk chocolate.  BETTER: dark chocolate.  Why? What kind of dark chocolate? No question is left unanswered in this book.  

Even better, this book is small enough to fit in your purse.  That's where I have kept mine for the past week and I cannot believe how many times I have referred to it.  There is a glossary of ingredients which is very helpful when reading labels on the back of a product.  

I hope the authors come up with a sequel to this book! I would definitely buy it.  

While fantasizing about Christian Grey may be the trend right now, my health comes first!  Thank you Unjunk Your Junk Food for an eye opening read!

You can purchase a copy of Unjunk Your Junk Food from Amazon.com HERE.

Rewined Candles "Candles With A Purpose"

Here's one of the coolest products I have reviewed recently, Rewined Candles. These great soy candles are hand made in Charleston, South Carolina from repurposed wine bottles. Rewined candles are available in nine scents. Here's the cool part, Rewined candles are blended to mimic different varieties of wine, I doubt you are going to find a wine scented candle anywhere else!

Pillow Tag Fundraiser - help pregnant ladies everywhere!

                                             Video Credit: BellyRest
A young lady named Kerri Smith spent two years developing a support pillow for pregnant ladies. After two years of research and 14 prototypes she had the design for the perfect pillow to help expecting moms rest more comfortably. But when Kerri went to set up online sales she discovered that she has to pay $4,460. a year to REGISTER the tags she is required to put on her pillows. She hit a roadblock with her great invention and is not able to market and sell her pillows due to these government regulations (she has to pay those fees every year). Not to be deterred Kerri has set up a fundraiser, if she can raise the required $4,460. by August 15th her company, Belly Rest can proceed and sell these high quality pillows.
Kerri and her friend even made a video which I posted above, it's hilarious!! To read the full story and learn more about Belly Rest pillows go HERE. And for my local readers Kerri is not too far from us in State College, PA and the pillows will be manufactured in Williamsport, PA. If you are a fellow Pennsylvanian you know how many factories have shut down and how many jobs have been lost in recent years, supporting Belly Rest will put money back in to PA!

Classic Style -The Sheath Dress

Of all the dress styles the sheath dress is my favorite. I am wearing one of my black ones (I have three in black) in the pic above. I also have sheath dresses in navy, pink, tangerine, and plum. I just love the versatility of a sheath dress! You can wear one alone in the warmer months and wear one with a classic white button down and tights in winter. You can throw a sweater or blazer over one and can accessorize with a 16" necklace like I did or a really long strand of beads.

                                                                 Photo property of fanpop.com
The sheath dress  is structured to follow the contours of your body and is a great choice for all body types. The sheath dress is considered very chic, think Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn.  Leave a comment and let me know if you own a sheath dress or have ever worn one, they are one of  my personal favorites!

I have always been curious about the SodaStream and have heard it is a great way to conserve money rather than continuously buying 12-24 packs of soda at the store.

Kathleen Kennedy

Kathleen Kennedy was born February 20, 1920 the second daughter of Joe and Rose Kennedy. She was vibrant and merry even as a child. Her nickname was "Kick" and she was JFK's favorite sister. Kick was attractive but not what you would call beautiful. She was one of those people whose personality made her sparkle. She had excellent taste in clothes and was always fashionably dressed. She also had impeccable manners and a grace of her own. Following Joe Kennedy's service as Embassador to Britain Kick returned to England to serve with the Red Cross.

College Corner - Save money with Campus Book Rentals

With the start of the fall semester rapidly approaching for my son and thousands of other college students I thought now would be a good time to share a great way to save money with my readers, renting college textbooks. For any incoming freshman and their parents who are unaware textbooks at the college book store can be very costly. My son's first semester it was over $700. for books! That's where Campus Book Rentals comes in. You can rent the textbooks you need and save a ton of money. 

The Men At My House

                                             John, Josh & Johnny

 The one on the left is the husband AKA Mr. Jackie's Views. Tomorrow is his birthday (July 23rd). I won't say how old he will be but I like to think that he has held up pretty well after 22 years hanging out with me. The first time I saw him I thought he looked like Patrick Swayze (it was 1989 and Dirty Dancing was THE movie that summer).  Oh to be young and in love again! Seriously he's a very hard worker and doesn't have any hobbies except work. When I hear women complain about the husband going off to hunting camp, or fishing or watching football all day I can't say I know what that's like. John likes to work and play with the boys and that's about it. He can be a handful and VERY stubborn but he is cute too look at when he's sleeping. Oh and he also has nice "buns".

The little one in the middle that looks bashful? That's Josh aka Wild Man. Got a quick temper like his mama and he's a scrapper (I call him my Irish boxer). Don't let the look in the picture fool you, he is VERY outgoing and social. Josh looks and is built exactly like his dad except for his eyes (he inherited the Asian eyes from my side of the family). He has been known to tell random girls/women at Wal Mart "You pretty girl". Josh has no fear of anything and is constantly on the go, and I mean constantly. He is a real sweetheart, loves everyone and is full of joy! He is also a prankster and likes to tease. Just last week he stole his grandma's bra out of her room and ran outside yelling 'booby holder". And we have no idea where he comes up with some of this stuff, we are pretty straight laced around the house. And when Josh smiles at you his dimples come out and his eyes shine and light up, he's a charmer! Has a very good mind and sharp memory, I'm curious to see where life takes him. He's more easygoing than his older brother and just goes with the flow.

The tall one on the right (he says he's not tall but I am only  5'2" so he looks tall to me)  would be the other son John aka John Boy. He's my college student and he's always busy. This summer he is working, taking a computer class for college, traveling with his race team on weekends and socializing with the young ladies when he finds time. He is very intelligent (went to Harvard when he was 16) but likes to downplay that side of himself. He is quiet and gentle but can be stubborn like his dad. And sometimes he gives me headaches, he decided at the last minute he wants to transfer to UNC for motorsports engineering so now mommy gets to scramble around and get him admitted and all his financial aid/scholarships transferred. But he knows I'll do it, I would do anything for my sons just like any other parent out there.  I miss the little boy in the Power Ranger costume that I swear was running around the house just the other day but I am proud of the young man he has become and enjoy talking with him about various things on an adult level.

Conscious Box Review

If you haven't heard of Conscious Box it is a great monthly subscription service, packed full of samples, delivered right to your home with healthy products that are handpicked just for you from businesses that are friendly to the planet. Subscribing to Conscious Box is a great way to discover some of the purest products available from ethical businesses!

Del Sol Color Changing Products Review & Giveaway

I discovered some really cool products when I reviewed Del Sol, the world's leading color changing apparel and accessories company.

A few notes from Miss Jackie

I just wanted to share a few quick updates with my readers. For my long time followers my son John's beagle Lucy is not doing well again. She actually can't walk anymore and we are taking her back to the vet to see if she can be helped or if it would be better to let her go. She is in fairly good health except for the leg problem, but she is in a lot of pain and has lost weight.

 I have been working very hard to get my giveaways done and posted, there are a few new ones that started tonight. I have joined some blogger opportunities hosted by other blogs for some really great prizes including a kids bouncy house, Coach bag, Kindle and a huge back to school giveaway. Those giveaways will be posted in the coming weeks. Being a smaller blog it is hard for me to get sponsors for big prizes and I wanted to bring opportunities to my followers to win some great things!
