Mission Belt helps keep your pants where they belong!


 
The Mission Belt Company uses a unique no holes design with a latch and tooth system to keep the belt at the desired size with adjustments every quarter of an inch.

That’s right, the belt should have a longer life because there is no pulling on the single holes.  The belt is built on a ratchet system.  The leather has notches built into it and the buckle ratchets on the leather.  Then, once you want to release it, there is a lever on the bottom of the buckle to release the lever on the notches.  What a fantastic idea!
 
Personally I love this belt. I think it has just a sleek design, that can be incorporated in almost any outfit and work perfectly. The front of the closure is very smooth, with a small Mission Belt, logo. Personally, I love the hot pink color of this belt and have received nothing but compliments on it :)


This is a fantastic gift this holiday season. Not only is it a great gift for men (who are so hard to shop for in the first place), but they also have belts for kids and women! You can feel confident in purchasing from Mission Belt because you will be assured a high quality, leather belt with no holes that looks amazing.

For every single belt sold, Mission Belt donates a dollar to a micro lending organization to help in the fight against poverty and world hunger. This is done by supporting entrepreneurs in acquiring loans so that these individuals can create jobs and support their families.
 
You can purchase this belt on Mission Belt for $34.95!

iBallz helps protect your iPad or other tablets from accidental drops


 
The iBallz shock-absorbing harness consists of 4 foam balls that are connected together by an elastic cord. They each connect to one of the four corners of your iPad 1 or 2. iBallz protects your iPad from medium chest height accidental drops onto flat surfaces.
 
 
Besides protection from drops, iBallz says it can offer protection from liquid spills because the device is safely suspended above any table. However, iBallz alone does not protect your iPad from liquids being spilled directly onto it. There are, however, add-on protective case options available to compliment the iBallz system, such as the iBallz Lid.


The iBallz original can be purchased directly from the iBallz website for $24.95! The iBallz lid is also available from the iBallz website for $29.95! They come in a wide range of fun colors too!

Who you gonna call! Ghostbusters

 
Underground Toys has great gift giving ideas for anyone on your Christmas list. They carry products from Dr Who to Hello Kitty and even Big Bang Theory. Their products are sold at stores nationwide like Spencers and Toys'R'Us.
 
Now even though my son is 10, he is a big fan of the Ghostbuster's movies, so I thought it was fitting to showcase a few of their products:
 

Of course we all remember the infamous Ghostbusters Logo! This guy is around 9 inches tall and plays the Ghostbusters theme song when pressed. Perfect for anyone's collection or just to have sitting on your desk!


Mini Stay Puff Marshmellow Man: He is cute and adorable plus plays the Ghostbusters theme song. Also comes with a clip to attach to your keys, backpack, or wherever you want this cute little guy to hang.

 
This has to be my favorite coffee mug of all time! It has the logo on the side but when you pour in hot liquid, the ghost appears! This is the best mug ever and I have been fighting my kids over it ever since!

Elektrokidz have wild hair that dance to the beat


 
ELEKTROKIDZ are the first ever music-inspired collectables that dance to the beat of the music you are listening to! Each ELEKTROKIDZ has its own special hair movement that dances to the beat and no two ELEKTROKIDZ hair dance the same. There are six different ELEKTROKIDZ that come in six different finishes, including black matte and shiny gold.


I received Black Glossy to review. This one is a black glossy color with yellow hair. The Elektrokidz remind me of the troll dolls. I use to love them as a kid and I wish I still had them. I’m very glad to have one of the Elektrokidz since they remind me so much of the troll dolls.

Once you have your music going, you can press on the Electrokidz belly button and his hair will start dancing. I love how the hair dances back and forth. Very entertaining to me, the kids and even our cats!
 
The Elektrokidz cost only $19.99 and can be purchase from WowWee's website as well as other great items!

Huggies Snug & Dry SureFit and Natural Care Wipes: #Sponsored by #MC

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Huggies and Target. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

 
 
Our family has always used Huggies but just had the opportunity to try out their Snug & Dry SureFit, we were up for the challenge. They are designed to stay with Alyssa through all of her ramblings and even provides 12 hours of leakage protection to last through the night. 

Being we live about 45 miles from the closet Target, we ordered the Huggies Snug & Dry SureFit online. They arrived within 2 days of ordering via UPS.  Upon opening the box and seeing the diapers, they feel thinner than regular huggies. This is great because now Alyssa's bum won't look bulky under her leggings. Plus, with the great elestaic on the legs, we don't have to worry about leakage. 

 
Huggies® Snug & Dry Diapers offer long-lasting protection you can count on, so you can focus on your little one’s:
  • Only Huggies® Snug & Dry Diapers have SureFit Design for up to 12 hours of leakage protection  
  • SnugFit Waistband for All-Around Fit  
  • Now closer-to-body fit to move with baby’s twists and turns  
  • Now softer outer cover   
The Natural Care Wipes Triple Clean wipes are thick enough to handle any mess, and the texture and scent are gentle. The wipes even come in designer tubs to keep them moist and on-the-go stylish containers for easy access. The wipes can clean sticky fingers all the way to about any mess our little one can create. I actually keep an extra pack of the wipes in the bathroom for removing my makeup. Being they are great for sensitive skin, they are perfect for removing makeup.


And if you don't have time to run to the store then order online at Target.com and check out Target's new subscription program for automatic shipments of diapers, wipes, formula and other items that they have to offer. This way, when you’re running out of your baby essentials, there is another order already on its way! The diapers and wipes just show up and are ready whenever you need them! Plus, you save 5% on all orders and you get free shipping!
