The JAKKS Pacific miWorld Collection are the perfect miniature playsets! @jakkstoys


My girls love everything miniature. Maybe because they are just smaller versions of adults, being able to “play” just like adults in a completely realistic mini-world really appeals to them. JAKKS Pacific has the cutest line of miWorld playsets that are so detailed and true to life, my girls spend hours playing with them!

You can choose from 5 different sets including Claire’s, Sprinkles, OPI, Sweet Factory, and Dairy Queen! Each playset comes complete with a doll figure, walls, and a floor, and the accessory pieces and stickers to set up the perfect store. And, all the miWorld sets snap together so kids can create their own version of a mini strip mall. By adding Figure Packs, Collector Packs, and additional Starter or Deluxe Sets, kids can really make it their own creation.

Designed for ages 7 and up, miWorld playsets are even more fun with the free miWorld app from iTunes. Kids can play mini games, design their own virtual avatar and even bring her to life in their actual miWorld playset!

My girls love the Claire’s playset and have re-designed it dozens of times! With 50+ miniature accessories including tiny nail polish bottles, sunglasses, and even shopping bags, miWorld has all the bases covered! The base and walls are relatively sturdy and stand alone easily without toppling over and that’s a huge bonus. Nothing is more frustrating when you’ve just completed the perfect set than to have pieces fall over! Our next set is a toss up between adding a DQ or Sprinkles Cupcake Bakery!

You can find these adorable true-to-life mini playsets at retailers like Walmart, Kmart, Toys ‘R Us, and Amazon.com. Look for their debut this fall (2014) at Target and Justice stores too! Keep up to date with the latest fun from Jakks Pacific on Facebook, Twitter at @JAKKStoys and at jakkstoys on Instagram!

BeeSweet Lemonade Giveaway!

BeeSweet Lemonade 1

BeeSweet Lemonade’s Story:
Let our founder, Mikaila, explain the origin of BeeSweet Lemonade:

When I was just four, my family encouraged me to make a product for a Children’s business competition (the Acton Children’s Business Fair) and Austin Lemonade Day. So I put on my thinking cap. I thought about some ideas. While I was thinking, two big events happened.

  • I got stung by a bee. Twice.
  • Then my Great Granny Helen, who lives in Cameron, South Carolina, sent my family a 1940′s cookbook, which included her special recipe for Flaxseed Lemonade.I didn’t enjoy the bee stings at all. They scared me. But then something strange happened. I became fascinated with bees. I learned all about what they do for me and our ecosystem. So then I thought what if I make something that helps honeybees and uses my Great Granny Helen’s recipe?

That’s how BeeSweet Lemonade was born. It comes from my Great Granny Helen’s flaxseed recipe and my new love for bees. So that’s why we sweeten it with local honey.

There is so much more to learn about BeeSweet Lemonade.

Five people will win a bottle of BeeSweet Lemonade as well a trinket!

Enter to win a 3lb Box of Petbrosia Cat or Dog Food! #giveaway


Check out the wholesome, customized nutrition of a Petbrosia diet for your favorite furry friend! With all natural ingredients and a commitment to the health and happiness of pets, Petbrosia offers so much more for your pet. Take a peek at my personal review HERE! And, be sure to enter below for your chance to win a 3 pound box of Petbrosia dog or cat food!

Get Complete, Customized Nutrition for your Dog with Petbrosia! #review


Dexter is our 3 year old, 180+ pound St Bernard. Despite the big, bulky head, the droopy jowls, and the never-ending hair, he thinks he’s a Teacup Chihuhua. I know better. He’s really more like a pet bear (that drools a lot). Being an extra-large breed dog, Dexter has certain nutritional needs. It’s important to me that we feed him a wholesome and healthy diet of food so he can be at his best. That’s where Petbrosia customized pet foods stand out.

Petbrosia offers cat and dog foods made from all natural meats, fruits, and veggies designed to match your pet’s dietary needs according to their breed, age, weight, and any other relevant health issues. At the heart of Petbrosia are pet lovers (who are also pet scientists) that promise never to include corn, soy, cassava, or wheat in their foods. The first ingredient is always real chicken or salmon. I really like that the ingredients are labeled along with general feeding guidelines right on the outside of the package (which is light blocked and resealable). Simple in design, Petbrosia packaging isn’t about trying to convince you to buy it. The ingredients label will do that all by itself.


We all know that not all dogs are the same and the same goes for their food. Every dog or cat has different nutritional needs and Petbrosia will help you determine the best formula for them with a simplified ordering process and tips on switching dog food. After just a few questions concerning your pet’s breed, age, weight, energy level, allergies, and other health concerns, you’ll have the best choices outlined. And, when you use promo code: BRGE10 you’ll save $10.00 off your first order!

I used to feed Dexter a well-known, mass-marketed brand of dog food. It advertised “complete and balanced nutrition” and yet the first ingredient is whole grain corn meal followed by meat and bone meal, and corn gluten meal. Curiously enough the ingredient in this brand that most closely resembles a vegetable is soybean meal. There really is no legitimate dog food comparison between what I’ve been feeding Dexter and Petbrosia.  Being uneducated about what I feed our dog is detrimental to his health. I’ve also noticed that Dexter seemed to really prefer the smaller sized kibble of Petbrosia. His usual dog food comes in much bigger pieces that he seems to almost struggle with eating. Another plus in the Petbrosia dog bowl at our house!

If you’re looking for a better option for your pet too, Petbrosia.com offers wholesome nutrition that you can feel good about. Delivered directly to your door, Petbrosia can automatically ship you a new box at a pre-scheduled time with their auto replenishment dog food delivery program. No more running out to the store at the last minute because you’re out of dog or cat food!

You can keep up to date with them via social media on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+.
