Post Sesame Street Cereal

We are actually not big cereal eaters in this house. Eggs are our go to breakfast. However, cereal comes in super handy when I need a quick snack I can throw into the snack catcher or if I need something to satisfy my sweet tooth.

For my toddler, I had been purchasing those puffs which were 2 bucks for hardly several ounces of food. Then I discovered Post Sesame Street Cereal in Apple (Elmo) and Banana (Cookie Monster) flavors. They are very similar to that other brand's puffs. They don't melt in the mouth so I'd recommend these for your older toddlers with some experience eating. Besides that though, they are perfect for an on the go snack.

Here are some highlights:
  • They have very little sugar in them which of course my toddler doesn't mind. If you've been feeding your toddler high sugar cereal, they may be a bit disappointed.
  • The cereal is shaped like X's and O's. My 1.5 year old daughter is now recognizing those letters in other settings. 
  • The characters are the main draw for my daughter. She just recently discovered Sesame Street and this cereal has increased her awareness for Elmo and Elmo has increased her awareness for this cereal. 
  • For the price of a box of cereal you can save money buying these over that other brand of overpriced puffs.
Check out Post Sesame Street Cereal for your little one! I think it is a great option for the younger set.

Schick Hydro Silk

For some reason, having freshly shaved legs really motivates me to work out, so I was stoked when my Schick Hydro Silk came in the mail. I hopped in the shower and shaved and oh boy - my legs were the smoothest they have EVER been. I am not exaggerating.

I have tried almost every razor out there - from the cheapo disposables to the gargantuan 10 blade man razors (okay, that may be an exaggeration). However, I have tried many. They have all done a decent job but didn't wow me like this razor did.

My upper legs are an issue for me. For some reason, they have always felt stubbly even after a fresh shave. Using the Schick Hydro Silk was different though. I'm not sure if it is the five blades that are curve sensing, the unique skin guards, or the water activated moisturizing serum or a combo of all three. All I know was I wanted to put on a short skirt and show off my legs to hubby!

Smooth legs are a must especially with spring and summer right around the corner. If your razors are always leaving you wanting try Schick Hydro Silk - Free Your Skin.

Glade Expressions - Pineapple & Mangosteen Oil Diffuser

I currently have my new Glade oil diffuser sitting at my desk. It is providing me with an extremely pleasant smell. I definitely want to go back and purchase more of these for other rooms of the house. This particular fragrance smells like a Pina Colada - a refreshing smell in the middle of winter!

The scent is pleasing - detectable but not overpowering. As for the Bamboo holder I wasn't as impressed. In the box it looked nice and then I took it out and it felt cheap. The cutouts of leaves are not clean and it looks more like plywood than bamboo. It's cute from a distance, but up close you can tell not much effort was put into making this look elegant.

I've used oil diffusers before and I like this one better than those because of the frangrance and the fact you can't see the actual oil. Also, the oil bottle is not going to spill all over the place if a one-year old happens to storm through. *Smiles*
