Tobo Track

Educational toys that are eco-friendly have become more in-demand over the last couple of years. Whenever possible I try to find products that are not only fun for the kids, but have an educational element while being free of toxins and chemicals. I was happy to come across Tobo Toys who recently introduced their first product: Tobo Track.
Tobo Track is made from only the safest non-toxic materials. The material used for each track piece is actually made of wood, however the technique to make them is similar to plastic and provides a lightweight smooth finish. Each Tobo Track includes 12 identical hexagonal pieces offering hundreds of way to create and play. The set includes 1 wooden car and a mesh bag for easy clean-up and travel. There’s also optional green stickers to place on the pieces, which gives the wooden pieces some color.
Something else worth mentioning is the numbers on the edge of each piece. Here’s a few ideas of how they can be used for educational purposes:
  • The two numbers must be added together (or subtracted) before the car can drive across.
  • Join only odd numbers to odd numbers and even number to even numbers.
  • Only connect same number together (ie. 1 to 1, 3 to 3, 6 to 6, etc.)
  • Add up all the numbers as you drive through the track.
  • And make up your own number games!
Tobo Toys are designed in Canada and manufactured in the USA. I really appreciate the value of Tobo Track and look forward to seeing what other sustainable products Tobo Toys creates! You can buy Tobo Track on their website for just $39.95 on sale with FREE shipping!! It is also available for the same sale price on amazon.com.

After Flats: Foldable Flats Review

After Flats Logo


If you are a lady, I know this has happened at some point to you before. You buy a gorgeous pair of heels to wear. After you start wearing them for awhile, they start to really hurt your feet and you have to them off now. Sound familiar? I know it has happened to me before. It is such a pain to have to carry around another pair of shoes to wear when my feet are done letting me wear my heels though. Lucky for us ladies, After Flats has solved the problem.

After Flats

After Flats sells rollable flat shoes that you can easily carry around. The flats also come up with a small clutch that turns into a large tote bag. You are able to get your flats and carrying case in either black, silver, gold, pink, or red. All their colors are really cute. Their sizes run from 5 - 12. The shoes are made out of a ultra light synthetic leather with a rubber sole. 
This product is  a "why didn't I think of that" kind of product. Hurting feet after wearing heels for too long is a problem all ladies that wear heels have. I absolutely love that I do not have to worry about making it through the day or night with my heels. When my feel start to hurt, I just just slip the After Flats on. The shoes are made very well, are fashionable, and fold up so nicely. Plus the clutch is the perfect carrying wristlet for the night out. If you are a  heel wearer, this is a must have product!

Sebastian Shaper Hairspray

The 1960s was all about experimentation – colours and shapes collided as people raised eyebrows, hemlines and their expectations of what style could be. And once the revolution had started it wasn’t about to stop – the brightest decade the world had ever seen was about to give way to something even more exciting...

LA stylist Geri Cusenza entered the 70s determined to push things further and take a generation from flower power to fearless hair fashion. Sebastian was founded on this principle of fearlessness. A thirst for innovation and changing the game has been our raison d’être from the word go. Today is no different.
Sebastian Shaper Hairspray is a brushable styling hair spray that shapes during blow drying. Builds moveable body. Brushes through for restyling. Fast drying.
Hold hair in place all day. I like that it doesn't pull when brushing like some hairsprays do.
If you want to purchase Professional Sebastian products, you can see all they have to offer on:

Heaven + Urth Beelieve Hydration Balm

 Thanks to the ladies from Heaven+Urth for letting me review their Beelieve Hydration Balm. So about a week ago I received a package with this little cute burlap sack, it had a jar and little wooden spoon inside.

The first thing I noticed, upon opening the package, was the adorable packaging. Even though I was covered in shredded newspaper (used for packing), I was surprised they used it. It is a great way of recycling!
Beelieve Hydration Balm is a natural product, which can be used ALL OVER your body.  From head to toe it can be beneficial to your skin, oh and your hair too.
