Yum Yum Dishes 9Plate Review and Discount Code

Last Summer I had the chance to review Yum Yum Dishes 4 oz. bowls and now I'm excited to let you know that along with adding snap-on lids to their bowls, Yum Yum Dishes has also released an all new 9-inch dinner plate.

Did you know that a typical dinner plate size is 11-13 inches? This makes it so much easier to over-serve and over-eat your meal. That's why Yum Yum Dishes and Tracy Adler have created the 9Plate. This is a 9" dinner plate created to help you with the correct meal portion. Along with a smaller size, the plates are also sectioned and labeled for Protein, Carbs and Veggies to help you with your portion control.

Having the same encouraging words as the bowl, the Yum Yum Dishes 9Plate is great at letting you know when snack time is over when you read "Yum Yum time is....Over". And just like the bowl, the 9Plates come in four vibrant colors and are dishwasher safe.

Make This Valentine's Day Special With EdenFantasys

**This post contains links to adult content. Please do not open with children in the room.**

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

If you are a regular Life With Two Boys reader then you know how much I love to talk about my boys as well as kid-friendly products... Well this post is a little reminder to all my lovely readers that it's not always about the kids. 

When you're married or in a relationship sometimes you forget that you need to spend a little romantic time with your hubby or boyfriend... I mean if you're anything like me, as soon as the kids go to bed, I go to bed. I'm so exhausted from dealing with the fighting, yelling, and kid-attitudes that I just want to jump in bed, close my eyes, and pretend the day never happened, leaving my poor husband sitting up watching T.V. with the dog.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner I've been trying to come up with some ways that I could spend a little more time making my husband (and even myself) happy. What did I come up with? A nice romantic night at home with some fun things from EdenFantasys.

Not familiar with EdenFantasys? EdenFantasys is an online "adult" store. Now I know what you're thinking and it's not all sex toys and videos, while they do have that stuff EdenFantasys also sells romantic candles, lingerie, bath & body products, and even make-up, making it my go-to shop for anything I need to spice things up a bit in the bedroom.

If you and your husband or significant other are in a rut I would highly recommend checking out EdenFantasys and everything they have to offer. This Valentine's Day I want you to put the kids to bed early and have a nice romantic night at home to re-kindle those flames that might be slowly burning out!

Be sure to come back between February 1st and 14th to enter to win a $50 EdenFantasys gift card during the From Our Hearts To Yours Valentine's giveaway hop!

Disclosure: As part of the EdenFantasys Ambassador Program I receive gift cards in exchange for honest reviews. All opinions are my own.

Guest Post: It’s Time to Go Back to School!!

College is extremely expensive. Ask any starving college student and they will attest to that.

Students have a lot to pay for, for example: tuition, fees, rent, and to top it off…textbooks! Yuck! But, with the beauty and convenience of the internet, companies have come up with ways for students to save money on overpriced textbooks. Textbooks can be rented, Netflix style, for a portion of the cost.

This semester, I went to order textbooks for my husband. He needed 4 textbooks this semester, and the textbooks originally cost around $150 each! Click here for an example of the price difference. I would have paid $578 buying these textbooks on At, I paid $198 total for my hubby’s textbooks. I was so excited when I was checking out, to see that I was saving WAY more than I was spending! And, to top it off, shipping is free both ways :) Life is good.

Here are some perks of renting from campusbookrentals:
• Free shipping both ways.
• 40-90% off bookstore prices.
• Highlighting in the textbooks is okay.
• 30 day return policy for full refund.
• 15 day grace period.
• Donation to Operation Smile with each textbook rented! is trying to raise enough money to donate 1,000 life-saving surgeries through Operation Smile. Save money, and donate to a good cause…what can get better than that?

Top Five Ways to Have Fun on a Budget - What's Your Number? Style!

Top Five Ways to Have Fun on a Budget 

Ally loses her job at the beginning of the film, and Colin is a struggling musician, so having fun on a budget and going on cheap dates was a must for them. For example, Colin planned a cheap, romantic date of making Mexican food at home and watching lucha libre on the DVR. In that same vein, this feature will offer five ways to have fun on a budget, whether it's alone or on a date. Ideas include taking a walking tour of famous sites or cool buildings, having a rooftop picnic under the stars, and playing sports in the park with friends.

After reading a magazine article that insists if a woman has slept with at least 20 people that they have already missed Mr. Right, marketing executive Ally Darling begins to panic, thinking that she will be alone forever.  With the help of her hunky new neighbor Colin, Ally starts tracking down all her ex-boyfriends, hoping to find her real true love while she helps him escape his latest fling.  Hilarious hijinks and adventure ensues as Ally goes on her wild search for the best “ex” of her life, only to find what she is looking for has been right in front of her all along.

Purex Triple Action Liquid Detergent and UltraPacks Review

I personally love Purex laundry detergent and for you other Purex fans out there I have some great news.. Purex is launching two all new detergents including Purex Triple Action liquid detergent and Purex UltraPacks.

I was sent samples of both the Triple Action liquid detergent and UltraPacks and am very pleased with both. First, lets talk about the Triple Action liquid detergent... This new and improved Purex detergent cleans clothes even better than previous Purex detergents and still costs less than the leading brands. Purex Triple Action detergent comes in several different scents including mountain breeze, lavender fresh, after the rain, and even free & clear, and like other Purex detergents the Triple Action detergent is safe for all types of washers.

Purex UltraPacks are also made with the new Triple Action laundry detergent but come in a convenient pre-dosed pack making doing laundry simpler. Just add 1 pack to the washer, then add water (allowing a little time for the pack to dissolve), then add your clothes and you're good to go.. No more heavy jugs, no more spills, and no more mess!

As I've mentioned I'm already a fan of Purex and didn't really think it needed to get any better. It's great at removing stains from my messy boys clothes and always leave them smelling fresh! But now I love the Triple Action detergent even more, whites are whiter and brights are brighter, and the price is still very affordable. I can't wait to see what Purex comes up with next!

Be sure to "like" Purex on Facebook to stay up to date on new products and promotions.

Disclosure: Purex provided me with samples of their Triple Action laundry detergent and their UltraPacks laundry detergent for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
