The ‘Mighty Mug’ is fit for a camel – even the human kind!

So I got your attention, didn’t I?  Good, that was my goal. I could have said the ‘Mighty Mug’ is mighty but that would be, well….redundant.  But it is mighty and it stands true to the claim that it will not tip over no matter how many times it is bumped into.  In my house where my rambunctious 7-year-old can knock over any drink, vase or collectible I own without even trying, this drink container is a breathe of fresh air.  And a carafe of fresh water which is another advantage to having the ‘Mighty Mug’ handy.  But I will get to that in a bit.

The company sent me their product to try and it was seamless from the beginning.  I ordered the style and color I wanted (and they have plenty to choose from – truthfully, it was hard to pick just one).  Then it arrived within the time frame promised, it was packaged beautifully and I got right down to using it.  The main selling point is that it adheres to any smooth, dry surface so it won’t ever spill.  And it doesn’t spill.  I have been using it for two weeks in a home with rugs that require regular cleaning from beverage spills and it has never been knocked over!  I even tried to knock it over several times and I couldn’t.

I could go on about all the features – BPA free, flexible straw to encourage sipping, holds hot or cold beverages, fits in the car cup holder, is durable and more but there are two things I absolutely love about this product – one, it is my new fashion accessory (plastic bottles that pollute landfills are totally passé) and two, I am drinking water again!!  And trust me, I need to drink water.  But I despised drinking it before I had the Mighty Mug.  I thought I was a dromedary.  Good word, huh?  It comes from my son’s vocabulary list this week.  Pretty sophisticated for age 7, huh? For the record, it is a one hump camel. But you already knew that, right?   The list also included the word ‘arid’ which was how my skin was feeling before the Mighty Mug.  So for those reasons and many more, I highly recommend this product. And right now until Friday, October 16th, readers can save 25% by simply using the code iteez25 at check-out.  So head on over to and get one for yourself.  You will not be disappointed!!  And if you do buy one and you love it, please hit me up here with your story. Happy hydrating!

Keep calm and buy Mom a T-shirt

Okay, dear readers, you must check this out!  If you have been following the blog and I hope you have, you know I frequently promote great products and services.  But today I am promoting a product created by me.  Yes, yours truly.  C’est moi!  The blog is branching out and selling products!   I am offering my very own T-shirt for Mother’s Day.  It is the first T shirt that I have collaborated on.  I hope there are many more products to follow.  Yes, I came up with the idea for this shirt!   And trust me, it is not as easy as you would think.  But it sure is fun.  Well, in a scary sort of way.  Like, gulp,  Will anyone like it?

So here is what you need to do:  Go to and get out your credit card to reserve a wonderful, high quality T-shirt for the fabulous lady in your life:  Mom!  Or buy one for yourself.  It is only $20.  The shirt reads ‘Keep calm and go get Mom’ because let’s face it, in a crisis or in happy times, who do you call first?  Not ghostbusters!  You call Mom!  Right?  Mom is on the job and available 24/7.

Now, I only have to sell 15 shirts for the product to be printed.  Well, technically, 14 because you know I will buy one.  Right?  How could I not?  But I am hoping to sell many more.  Like, in the hundreds even.  In the meanwhile, I will keep calm and let the orders roll in. The campaign will only last 3 weeks so the T’s have time to ship.  Thank you for the support.  Here is the link one more time (just in case you forgot, wink, wink

A penguin arrives during a snowstorm

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from the Kigs company suggesting I try a product called a kigurumi costume.   I wondered, “What is a kigurumi?” Is this (yet again) a product that I have not been informed of?  Talk to me, people.  I need to know these things.  I was intrigued.  The email described the product as a ‘Japanese style animal costume.’ This sounds like fun.  So they offered me an animal costume to try out for one of my children.  We emailed each other, my son picked the animal he liked out of a variety of choices, I ordered at Amazon and within days, there was a package at my door.  It was so easy.  And this is December, mind you.  When any number of things could have gone wrong with the item, the shipping, etc.  It was beautiful.  Magical, even.  And I am not even exaggerating.  The whole process from ordering to delivery was seamless.

So, on one of the coldest days of the year (about 20 degrees most of the day) when a snowstorm had rolled into town, our kigurumi arrives.  I didn’t know what to expect from this package but there were squeals of delight from both my kids when the penguin emerged from the snowy carton.  It is super cute.  And super soft.  It is made of fleece. And it is well made.  But what really amazed me about the kig was the transformation of the person in it.  Now I had a penguin in the house.  There was penguin talking.  Ack. Ack.  Penguin waddling.  I thought I was at the aquarium.  There was lots of laughter and joking between my kids.  Then my daughter asked, “Can I try it on?”  “Sure, why not?”  Truth be told, I thought she would think she was too old or too mature.  I was wrong.  Again.  There seems to be a pattern here!

Anyway, I highly recommend this product.  It would be fun for a sleepover or a party or just hanging out.  And it’s warm and cuddly. Cuddly is not a word I use often but it fits here.  They make them for kids and adults. The photos don’t really do them justice.  Not even my photos.  So check out the website  or do what I did and order from Amazon.  Here’s the link to kids kigurumi Amazon page: kigurumi.  They have other styles like a dinosaur, a red panda (which would have been my number one pick – just saying!) and well, go check it out.  I think this is a cool gift idea…for Christmas or any occasion really.  Go kigs!

How cute is this penguin?
