Review: ZOKU Duo Quick Pop Maker equals instant fun

by Blogger on ‎06-08-2014 11:03 PM - last edited on ‎06-09-2014 11:02 AM by Blog Editor in Chief


The summer is almost here and nothing goes with kids and summer better than popsicles. On a hot day even I won’t say no to a popsicle.  What I love about popsicles is that you and your kids can make them yourselves. When kids learn that they can make a dessert themselves with little or no help from you, their eyes grow so big as if they learned that Santa Clause is coming early this year. It’s a great bonding opportunity. Folks in New Jersey created the Zoku Duo Quick Pop Maker which freezes ice pops in as little as seven minutes right on your countertop without electricity. Do this sound exciting? It surely does to me, so without further ado, let’s see what this magical machine can conjure.


New baby on the way? These nursery essentials will ensure you're well prepared.

When expecting your first baby one might think that the nursery is very important as it’s the babies’ room, where the baby will spend most of its time. That’s not entirely incorrect, but really the nursery is important as that’s where you, along with the baby will spend a lot of time together. It’s not only supposed to be cozy for the baby, but also for you (mom or dad). There’s nothing worse than having to get up in the middle of the night to cuddle a little one because they are sick, and its pitch black and there’s nothing to sit on. A properly furnished nursery is of the utmost importance and below you can find what I consider to be the essentials for any well-equipped nursery.


Revamp Your Kids' Bedroom with these Great Ideas!

Kids Bedroom Ideas.jpg

Everybody knows that spring is the season full of transformations. Whether you’re spring-cleaning or moving into a new place, what better way to kick it off than by revamping your kids’ bedroom! Shopping for the right items to style your kids’ bedroom is a fun activity that involves the whole family. With so many funky to sophisticated options to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start so here’s a list of my top picks to help get your creative juices flowing:



I’m a professional woman. I manage people, accounts, money - serious stuff. After work I’m a mom. I organize, prepare and manage little people. It is with confidence that I can say, I’m an adult. However, nothing shades this layer of seriousness and melts the adult in me as fast as LEGO does. Put a box of blocks in a front of me and my eyes open so wide that I can almost feel them sparkle, the experience is so intense. I love blocks. More specifically I love LEGO. Whether you’re one or one hundred there’s a set for you and I’ll be putting to the test the new Juniors line: Race Car Rally set and Spider Man: Spider-Car Pursuit.

When your baby bundle of joy’s arrival becomes imminent, you begin looking seriously at getting all the accoutrements for feeding, changing, dressing and keeping watch over him/her.  One of the staples nowadays for parents is a baby monitor.  And they’ve come a long way from the 2-way radios of a few years ago. Now it’s all about TV.

Step counters are a great way to see how much you’re moving in a day, and how active—or not–you really are.  I’m a fitness tracker fan; I own both the Jawbone Up and the Fitbit Flex, and love them, though my go-to is the Fitbit.  So I was pleased to be able to try out a different brand and style of tracker: the Ibitz Unity by GeoPalz.

Great Gifts For Babies and Kids.jpg

Choosing the right gift for a young one can be quite the challenge, especially if you’re someone like me who doesn’t have kids, but has a special nephew, niece, or friend’s kid in mind. Of course you have the option of walking into the kid’s aisle and picking a toy off the shelf, but where would you know where to start? Personally, I like to put a bit more thought into gift giving, especially when it comes to shopping for my special two year old nephew.


A rule of thumb that I stand by is: choose high quality products that will make both the child and parent happy. Boské Kids is an all-natural clothing company that offers just that. With a wide selection of playful, stylish, and unique clothing, you can surely count on them to fulfill your shopping needs.

I LOVE baby food! Ok, I probably shouldn't admit to that, but some of that stuff is just SO good! Of course, the kinds of baby food that I like (custard, tutti-frutti, and anything else that's sweet and yummy) are probably not the ones you want to start your baby on when first introducing the little one to solid foods. In fact, many parents today prefer to purée their own food for baby to ensure a healthy diet with none of those nasty preservatives and other extras that you might find in store bought products. For such people, choosing the right blender is paramount! If this is you, read on for a brief overview of four such devices to help you make the best possible choice of blenders for making your own homemade baby food.
