Nickelodeon's Peter Rabbit Infant Toys

Disclaimer/Disclosure: I was given items to review. Any and all opinions are my own.

Hey guys and dolls! Let me start this review by congratulating my friend Amy at This Mama's Life for her new baby girl (well new as of May but she's still adorable and new to me)! Since I knew Amy was having a baby I asked her to share this review with me. You can find her half of the review on her site HERE. I am thankful to her and Peanut for the help.

Now to my part of the review... Peter Rabbit marks Nickelodeon's first foray into the infant isle. They have been our go to from kids, tweens and teens but infants are a whole new game for them. The Peter Rabbit line is based on the show on Nick Jr by the same name. It's a show that teaches kids problem solving skills with fun and adorable characters.

My personal favorites are Peter (the show's namesake) and Benjamin. They are both so cute and always getting in and out of trouble. GUND made plush from the characters and they are the cutest things ever! What I love most about them is how soft and fuzzy they are. It's a fine plush material so it is even more soft than the standard plush. The plush are also very well constructed. They are perfect for 1 year and older babies (which is the only reason I didn't send them to Amy... Yet!). The only reason I would wait until a baby is 1 is that the backpack on Peter or Benjamin's hat don't feel the most secure to me.

As for the DVD it has 8 episodes from the show and will be great to watch when snuggling your little one. My favorite part is the series and the plush grow with your kids into their preschool years. So you buy them the fun Peter Rabbit toys when they are a baby and they can watch the show when they are toddlers. Perfection!

What do you think? Do your little one's watch Peter Rabbit?

Wedding Wednesday: Eve's Addiction Jewelry

Disclaimer/Disclosure: I was given items to review. Opinions are my own and my mom's.

Hey guys and dolls! As you may know I love shiny. So while researching shiny things for my wedding I stumbled upon Eve's Addiction. They have some of the most beautiful jewelry I've ever seen. They also have decent prices.

When I first looked around I was looking for wedding jewelry. Well I found the most beautiful Amethyst earrings and necklace. I knew they would be perfect. The problem? I got them before I found my dress and now they don't match. BUT I can save them for my honeymoon or give them to my mom (the beautiful woman in the picture).

Watch my video review and let me know what you think. Would you wear it even though it doesn't match? Save for honeymoon? Also say hi to Mom!

Vapur Water Bottle Review

Disclaimer/Disclosure: I was give an item to review. Any and all opinions are my own.

Hello again guys and dolls! Another Cruisin Tuesday here in the Lair. Today we are talking about staying hydrated while on the boat (ok I know it's a ship). Cruises are a great fun time but the drink stations can be few and far between. The other thing to worry about is that a bottle of water can cost so much on a cruise ship. What to do? Carry a refillable bottle with you as you go.

But bottles can take up so much space in a beach bag and sometimes they are bulky and heavy. This is where Vapur comes in. They make refillable bottles that fold up very small when empty. Vapur are perfect for filling up and taking them on the go. Or leaving them empty and in a purse until you can fill them up. Example? The plane! Leave it rolled up and empty in your purse for security. Then when you are on the other side fill it up for free H2O on the plane.

My only downside with this is this particular pouch doesn't hold a lot of liquid. About .5 liters which isn't much. I think this size is perfect for short trips or if the water source is close by. For longer trips I would say get a bigger bottle. I still really love this though and it will be great to save money on water for the cruise.

What do you think? How do you save money on a cruise?
