Do You Know What Everyone is Screaming About? #Giveaway

Can you hear the screaming?  You can’t?  Listen close, hear it now? Can you hear me screaming? I am, and I think you are too. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! See, I knew you would hear the screams. Who doesn’t love cold, creamy, delicious ice cream? Sorry to the lactose intolerant, you might want to stop reading now. Oh wait, you can stay, what I am going to talk about works for more than ice cream. It works for sorbet, gelato, sherbet, ice milk, lemon ice and more. You can have sorbet right? No dairy in there. See, feel better?  Okay, so let’s get this ice cream truck on the road shall we?

So whether you are serving ice cream or any other frozen delicacy, you need something to serve it with. Let’s talk about ice cream scoops for a minute. How about something functional and fabulous. A scoop with unparalleled style and performance. One that is attractively boxed and presented, you just might say it’s the whole package.

ice cream scoop

The Belle-V Kitchen Ice Cream Scoop is a work of art! A weighted sculpted handle that is balanced to feel perfect in your hand along with an angled head that works with the natural rolling action of your wrist. This team work between your wrist and the angled head gives you the leverage you need to cut through the hardest ice cream like a hot knife through butter. The spade shaped head lets you get right into those hard-to-reach corners of ice cream containers.

Built to last this scoop is crafted from stainless steel for strength and durability. Each Belle-V Kitchen ice cream scoop is unique because they are hand polished. Storage pouch and box are included with each scoop. To keep your scoop looking great all you need to do is hand wash with nice, warm, soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.

We love this scoop and it has become our go-to ice cream scoop. My husband and kids don’t go a night without ice cream. They are active and fit so it is their dessert of choice in the evening. Needless to say our scoop gets its own evening workout and rises to the challenge again and again. This scoop goes the extra gallon and never lets us down. They even have a left-handed scoop too and I think we need it with 3 left-handers in our family of 7!

Things To Consider When Choosing An Essential Oil Diffuser #Giveaway

Essential Oil blog graphic

 

I love using essential oil diffusers in my home. They are so beneficial in numerous ways. I love the aromatherapy effects that the diffused oil produces. There are so many diffusers on the market and you may be confused with all the choices. Like anything you have the subjective factors like one’s taste and preferences. Some like  diffusers that have multiple LED light options, others do not, some like larger diffusers, others prefer smaller ones,  some like the gently bubbling sounds and others are bothered by the sound. You also need to consider where you want to place it in your home or office.

Aiho in actions

I can speak to you about my preferences and taste. I love large volume diffusers. I adore the LED lights that change or remain fixed. To me they are very soothing and relaxing. I like a diffuser that has a very good mist output. I have found all that and more in my newest aroma ultrasonic diffuser from Aiho. You can see my video below.

 

This diffuser has awesome features. It has a huge 500 ml capacity! This diffuser will run for hours without needing to be refilled. Large volume diffusers like this are great to run overnight or all day without having to be refilled. There are 2 mist settings-low and high, the diffuser of course will run longer on low. The lights are so nice and can be set to change colors or stay fixed on one color. There are seven light colors but each one has 2 shades of intensity. The lights can also be turned off. There are timed run options starting at one hour and going up in increments. It also has a constant on until empty when the unit will shut itself automatically when the water tank is empty.

Aiho in actions

This diffuser has nice clear markings so you can add the amount of water you desire from 100 ml to 500 ml. It also has a gentle and soothing bubbling sound as the ultrasonic diffuser works to push the oil through the water volume and into the air. The cord on the plug is nice and long and allows you to have a lot of flexibility on the placement of the unit. I truly love this diffuser. If you are looking for a high-capacity diffuser with great LED lights, choice of mist speeds and run time options, you should check this out. It is available right on Amazon.

Mommy Ramblings’ readers can save 20% now when you use this coupon code YY62AQCW  when you purchase the diffuser on Amazon! Click HERE to Redeem!

How To Give Your Dog A Bath Without Getting A Bath!

I have 3 white dogs, never realized just how crazy that was and no, it was not planned. They are definitely different shapes, sizes and breeds. We have a huge, muscular purebred American Bulldog, a medium West Highland White Terrier and a tiny Maltese. They all have extremely different coat types too. The bulldog has a short, straight coat that sheds. The Westie has a wiry non-shedding coat that does not have an undercoat. The Maltese has a thick double coat of silky non- shedding fur.

delilah laying grass

delilah step sleeping

Living up in the mountains, we  do not have a ready supply of dog groomers, nor do we have any mobile grooming vans. I take care of the grooming. We even put a huge farmhouse sink in our laundry room with an awesome faucet to bathe the two smaller and messier ones. I am very lucky because they like their baths and do not mind at all clipping, scissoring, brushing and combing.

The worst part of the bath is that dreaded shake. You know what I mean, the one that happens just as you are trying to find a towel. The one that leaves you wet from head to toe. Ugh, I hate that, but I have good news. I no longer have to search for the perfect towel. I have the perfect drying towel now and it is so super large and absorbent I can use it on both these hairy beasts and still use it for the bulldog without issue.

The e-cloth For Pets, Large Drying & Cleaning Towel is so large it absolutely surrounds my Maltese many times over. She loves that part after a bath where I wrap her in the towel and then dry her. By the time I take it off she is nearly dry. The bigger Westie who is always second for baths gets wrapped up after her and the towel still has so much absorption power that her wiry coat is barely damp after I am done. Whether you have one or multiple dogs this towel is a must. It will keep you dry, get your dogs dry and is built to last.

Large Drying Cloth

  • Quickly removes and locks away dirt, mud and bacteria
  • Absorbs twice as much moisture as a conventional towel and dries four times more quickly
  • Soft to touch and encourages pets to cuddle into
  • Guaranteed for 300 machine washes
  • size: 59.1″ x 31.5″

Our Plan For More Family Movie Nights! #DataAndAMovie

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #DataAndAMovie #CollectiveBias

data and a movie

With a husband, 5 kids and an insanely busy life, I truly do not know how I would do all I do without technology. Our family is seriously “connected”. I love what technology has done for us, the doors it has opened, the lives we can touch and the lives that can touch us because of it. I can earn a living without leaving my home, no commute to some cubicle in corporate America. I have the ability to build my own dream and put my ideas in motion. The possibilities are truly endless. Technology not only opened those doors but it helps us all stay connected and on track. Smartphones are a given but with them we need a great data plan. What good is having a Smartphone if you are getting charged out the you-know-what whenever you use or go over you data plan.

I was at Walmart the other day and saw the newly lunched Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan. This is a great new service plan that features Unlimited Talk, Text & Data; 10GB 4G LTE. Oh and to further sweeten the deal this new plan includes one free VUDU move per month per line.  All of that for only $49.88 a month! With a family like mine that can mean 5  free VUDU movies every month! Disclaimer: All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer to this INFORMATION or your local Walmart for current pricing.

Dataandamovie

Our son Ethan has been bugging us for a phone and frankly it is something we have been considering as he is getting more involved with extracurricular activities and playing on sports teams. As he gets older, there will be more sports and activities. It will make Mom and Dad feel better knowing we have a way to let him know if we are running late or a way he can call or text us with anything. When I was at Walmart and saw the great price they had on the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, I picked it up. It was an amazing deal!

The phone is great, touch screen is very responsive, call sound is clear and crisp, phone is large enough to view recipes or photos in a good resolution. Music sounds great, could not be happier with it.

With  all that data, I can do more and save more! When I am out shopping one of my favorite apps is Price Match.  That app lets me scan the UPC code of any product and in seconds tells me who has the cheapest price. Since most stores match prices, that app alone has saved me hundreds of dollars.  It really helps to have a plan like this because I use my phone so much.

I am always texting my husband a list of things to pick up at the store, texting my older kids, checking the weather when traveling, looking up  phone numbers, finding restaurants or stores when traveling and on vacation and so much more! There are so many uses for data and so a plan like this is so awesome! The free VUDU  movies, they are the icing on the data cake! A time to unwind and sit down for a family movie night is always a good plan. Oh and one rule-phones off!

We love the time to disconnect from our phones and spend that time connecting with each other and sharing a special movie together. We make a night of it with popcorn and movie theater candy. Hey I have even been checking out some great movie night treats on this Samsung Galaxy Grand via a Food App.

Let me know if you are going to check out this great plan. If you do, feel free to let me know about any great movies you watched. With 5 free movies a month I can use those recommendations!
