Amazon introduces Nudge Day

Amazon introduces Nudge Day. This Friday, November 14, Amazon is celebrating Nudge Day. Just two weeks away from the busiest shopping weekend of the year, we invite customers to ask (or nudge) their family and friends to create an online wish list by going to Amazon.com/nudge. Nudge day is a way to nudge people toward the gift you may want by using Amazon Wish List.

Step One: Search
Search to see if your friend or family member has a Wish List on Amazon.   You can search by name or email address.
Step Two: Nudge
If they have a list, visit it and ask for an update. You will see “Ask your friend for an update” right underneath the Wish List name.  They will be able to send you a response to let you know once they are done.
If they don’t have a list, send them a request to create one. You will see “Ask your friend to create a Wish List” in your search results page.   Simply enter their email address and a request will be sent. 
Step Three: Create
Don’t forget to update and share your own list. On Amazon Wish List customers can even add items from other web sites using the Amazon 1Button App.   Add photos of products and personal notes with gift inspiration as well.   Once a wish list is update, the important thing is to share it friends and family and make it easy for them to buy something special.


Bamboo Deluxe Shower Floor and Bath Mat


I was surprised at the Bamboo Deluxe Shower Floor and Bath Mat . I was honestly expecting a bulky, heavy piece of wood that I may or may not use for it's intended purpose. I was quite surprised to find that it is a beautiful bath mat that fit right in with the decor.
The floor mat is made out of eco-friendly 100% Bamboo and features anti-slip grips on the bottom so that the mat holds still. This mat can be used inside a shower stall or outside the tub. The measurements of the mat is Size: 25.3 in. L x 15.7 in. W x 1.3 in. H.

If using this as the bath mat, outside the tub, as I had I would recommend putting a cloth bath mat down underneath it to absorb the water. This mat is very comfortable on the feet. I love walking across it and the way it feels beneath my bare feet. It is stain resistant but I do recommend cleaning it from time to time to prevent mildew buildup.

If you are looking for an alternative to a rubber or cloth bathmat I would recommend this mat. This would be a great way to change up the look of your bath mat or inside of your shower stall. I'm sure you can use this in several other ways as well.

Here is my 2 year old trying it out and she approves!

Apple Cake recipe

I tried looking online for a simple Gluten Free Apple Cake recipe but I couldn't find one that suited what I was looking for. So I made one up. This recipe uses Old Reed's Mill Gluten Free Flour, but I am sure you can use any gluten free flour or regular flour.

Gluten Free Apple Cake

2 cup gluten free flour
1 cup sugar
½ cup butter
½ cup vegetable oil (can also use olive oil)
2 tablespoons Baking Powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
¼ tablespoon salt
¾ cups water
4 large apples peeled and diced

Mix all ingredients well. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake in preheated 350° oven for 25 minutes.

This tastes great as is or you can add a caramel icing.


Help the T. Holmes Foundation help others this year

I have wrote before about the T. Holmes Foundation before ( previous post is here) and today I will write about it again and ask you for your help. The T. Holmes foundation was created by a mother who lost her grown child, Tylor to suicide. She wanted to keep his memory alive and create awareness to try to help other get through their hard times and to try to prevent other's from committing or attempting suicide. This is a very close to the heart subject so I ask that if you choose to comment on this post please keep it respectful. As part of Tylor legacy, his mother wanted to make sure to carry on his traditions. Every year he would do something that at the time I'm sure he didn't think it was special, but it was very special. He would stay over on the holidays so that the residents of the elderly care facility would not feel as lonely. Tylor truly had a big heart and lots of love in that heart. 

Because of that the T. Holmes Foundation have brought back for another year T. Holmes Santa's Secret Mission. They are asking for signed cards, signed with your family name (ie. The Smiths) and T. Holmes Foundation Santa's Secret Mission. You wouldn't believe how many people in elderly care facility and various other shelters won't even get so much as a card this holiday season. They are also asking for socks for seniors, playing cards, dominoes, winter hats and gloves (I am sure they will take scarves too), fleece throws, and toiletries.  

If you can find it in your heart to donate to this cause please mail items to: 


T. HOLMES Foundation 
631 12th Ave
Bethlehem PA 18018


You can buy most of the items asked for at the local Dollar Tree or have your children hand make a Christmas Card. It will definitely brighten someone's day. So far the foundation is going to be taking the donated items to pass out at  7 facilities and 1 mental health facility. Below you will find a flyer with additional information. You can also check out there FB page to see photos and learn a little more if you would like: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tholmeshelpinghands/?notif_t=group_added_to_group or you can go here: http://dia455.wix.com/tholmeshelpinghands.  And feel free to pass this information along. 


If you are wondering what will be done with any items left over they will get passed out to other facilities as well. This year they have a Santa that will be passing out all the items.

Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review and #GIVEAWAY




These candles are hand poured in the USA. They are a set of 3 and each candle is 2 ounces. These candles are made of soy and from my experience has a long burn time on them.

What I love about these candles is that the scent of them are accurate to the label and the theme and the scent of them carries throughout a large area. However, the scent is not overpowering. They come very well packaged, perfect for gift giving. They also have screw on lids, which is a nice touch. They come with a 100% money back guarantee.

Glow Stick Bracelets - 100 Bracelets



Glow Sticks are fun. I mean they really are. Right now you can get them on Amazon for $8.99 plus shipping and handling for 100 bracelets. They come in stick form but can be bent into a circle and snapped together using a small hollow connector. 

The Momma Blogger Glow Stick ideas:

Get creative with your glow sticks. 
  • They can be used in so many ways other than bracelets. 
  • You can loop them together and make a garland out of them for a nighttime party. 
  • You can take a paper tube and cut a design into it and insert one of two sticks and tape construction paper to the ends to make a nice decoration. 
  • You can put them into an empty clean milk jug and use as a nightlight or to line the walkway. 
  • Loop a couple of them together to make a headband. 
  • Loop two of them together and repeat several times to play nighttime ring-toss. 
  • Insert a glow stick into a balloon for many ideas. 
  • I mean really the ideas that you and your children can come up with for glow sticks are endless. 
What can you think up. Feel free to share your glow stick ideas with us.
