Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

How does your family celebrate Halloween?


Spin Master Fun!

Like most kids, my daughters love playing in the bath. And what’s bath time without bubbles? We recently had the opportunity to review Bath Blizzard and the kids had a blast!

From the site: “Turn your tub into a sudsy wonderland! The Kidkleen Bath Blizzard sticks onto your tub – watch it create a blizzard of bubbles and foam right before your eyes. It spits out more bubbles than you can imagine – so kids have a blast and come out squeaky clean.”

For the past couple of months, every time the Bath Blizzard commercial aired my daughters would go crazy! “I want that! I want that!” So imagine my excitement when this opportunity appeared and the Bath Blizzard showed up at my front door.

The Bath Blizzard comes with suction cups which held the unit out of the way. All you have to do is pour in a capful of bubble bath solution and out comes the bubbles. And boy, were there bubbles! The girls laughed and played and got clean all at the same time. Gotta love that! Bath Blizzard is non-toxic, wheat & tear-free, and hypoallergenic. It’s even pediatrician approved. They’ll never run out of bubbles again!

In addition, we also received the Aquadoodle Draw & Doodle which entertained the girls to no end. Girlie Girl has dreams of becoming an artist and is always thrilled to find new mediums to express herself. The best part about this mat is that there is no mess which makes it perfect for even Baby Bug to use. Just fill up the pen with ordinary water and their drawing magically appear on the mat. When they’re done playing, I just roll it up and store it away. Fun and convenient!

Thank you to Team Mom and Spin Master for this great review opportunity!


These Boots Are Made For Walking

The winners are Wendy Y & Kay.

Have you seen the new line of shoes by crocs? Yes, crocs! And I’m not talking about those comfortable rubber footwear with little holes in them. I’m talking about gorgeous and fashionable styles with the signature crocs comfort. Introducing You by crocs.

From the site: “Originally, Crocsâ„¢ Shoes were intended as a boating/outdoor shoe because of its slip-resistant, non-marking sole. By 2003, Crocsâ„¢ Footwear had become a bona-fide phenomenon, universally accepted as an all purpose shoe for comfort and fashion. Despite our rapid success, we still stand behind the core values of Crocsâ„¢ Footwear. We are committed to making a lightweight, comfortable, slip-resistant, fashionable and functional shoe, which can be produced quickly and at an affordable price to our customers.”

I could not believe my good fortune when I was approached to review a pair of crocs from their new Fall line of footwear. I chose the Highball Lambswool boots and was not disappointed. These beautiful pair of boots  were so comfortable that I truly did not want to take them off. The 3 inch heel was a little higher than I’m used to but because of the ankle support the boot provided, I was able to walk with no problems.

The really great thing about this style is the versatility. There is a removable ankle belt and the top of the boots can be turned down to show-off the amazingly soft and fluffy lambswool interior. This pair would be the perfect accessory to any item of clothing from jeans to dresses.

And of course, there’s the signature crocs comfort. I’ve own pairs of boots before but this one is the absolute most comfortable ones so far. The padding in the bottom absorbs the shock that most boots produce and I felt like I could walk for miles in them.

When it comes to footwear, I usually have to decide between style and comfort. This time I got both!

Buy it!

Stop by You by crocs and check out their new fall line for the whole family. I can guarantee that you’ll be as impressed as I was.
