A to Z April Challenge Letter R

Reviews. I have to dedicate R to reviews, because, this is my niche! I enjoy every aspect of reviewing products and services.
I've been so blessed to try so many new and exciting products. I enjoy testing the product, examining up close seams, stitches, wheels and whether eyes come off toys. I love listening to new music. To this day Alice, my 22 month old Granddaughter, falls asleep before we make it through 3 tracks of Little Star Lullabies. It's a MIRACLE CD!!
Getting to show off the products with photos has an awesome bonus! I can insert a photo of my Grandbabies with some of the products.
I've done reviews of products I wasn't sure of, for instance the Snot-a-rator, which actually has turned out to be one of the most amazing flu season/cold season miracles I've ever had!! (You know you want to click over and see what it is!! I know you do!!)
Then there was Toe Juice! I wanted to review that just for the name.  Again... a favorite product in our house!!
Copy Kids.  A dvd that my Grandbabies watched and then ATE RAW vegetables!! Broccoli, Bell Peppers, willingly!! WHAAAA??? Seriously! If you have a picky eater you need this dvd!  Check out photo's on that review!
Then there is Blythe Lipman. I was honored to be a guest on her radio show. Baby and Toddler Instructions. That was SO much FUN!!
Cars! Kia's and Mazda's have PERKS!!!  I still haven't talked anyone into letting me keep a car for longer than a week...
What makes my day even better? When I can offer a giveaway to my followers. Check out the great list to the right!! Love to hold me some giveaways!!

My review wish list? At the top is a stroller!! Jungle Gyms and Playhouses. (Yes, I am all about the Grandbabies!!)  Truthfully, I'm having a great time, I never know what will be offered up next and THAT makes my job FUN and exciting!!
What would be your dream review?

R is for Reviews

A to Z Challenge: Blog everyday except Sunday (per the rules) with my theme being what makes me happy, what inspires me and what makes me ME!!!  So be prepared for more information about me than you ever wanted to know!!

  4. I don't buy anything without reading reviews! Would be funto do them!

  7. What fun to be able to review new products!

  9. I just had to do a review and I was scared to death as what to say. I know what I want to say but it never comes out on paper. It's not so easy to do! You are very gifted in knowing just what to tell your readers. Could you breath on me so I might get some of it? LOL I love reading your reviews, I have learned a lot from your website. Thank you so much for all the hard work and effort you put into your site.

  10. I've never had to review a product before.... I write film reviews and occasionally book reviews and that's hard enough!

  11. I'd love to review mac products. I love the makeup, but it can get pricey pricey! They used to give free samples in little pots, but I think they're hip now and sometimes don't give it. Oh, and I love the Prescriptives brand as well, but they took it out of the mall and are sold online only now. BTW, I'll have to try that toe juice. Might go to Walgreens today! You have great marketing skills Connie! :)

  12. I love your blog! I'm an electronics collector :-) -- Nook, Kindle, mp3 players, convertible laptop computers, etc. I wish I could "review" those types of products. Then you could definitely call me HAPPY.

    Thanks for visiting my blog during the A to Z challenge.


  13. My nephew does tech reviews for The Verge. (He is the one offline for a year). I have always thought doing reviews for some of those products would be fun, but since I am so technologically challenged, it would need to have a lot of easy to use features!

  14. I would love to review an Audi TT convertible *and ride it to Mexico*

  15. I'd love to review cars for a living, and food. Not gadgets though as I'd only end up wanting to buy them myself. :-)

  20. Wow. I do reviews for books, who knew there was so much other fun stuff out there? What a brilliant job!

  21. You have great reviews! I would love to do reviews for Tech items like computers or cell phones.

    1. Someday! I really think I should be given an iPad Mini to review.
      Ohhh APPLE... are you listening??
      : )

  22. Oh my goodness - you've commented on 800 blogs?!?!?!?! *is awed*

    Your job sounds so AWESOME - and man, both my kids are picky eaters, so I could have really done with that DVD when they were munchkins! Great blog - am following!

    Thanks so much for commenting on my blog!

    1. Amber, it's kind of a cheat... I've been laid up from surgery. You really can only watch so much tv!! LOL So instead I'm reading awesome blogs! Much better way to stay sane!

  23. A Snot-a-rator! Ha! That's too funny. What a fun job you have.

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. :)

  24. love reading your a to z so far. :) I also liked the picture of the mustache cookies!

  25. Review writing sounds like an interesting way to try lots of new things.

  26. That is a great question Connie. I think my dream review would be to fly to NZ because Peter Jackson needs me to look at the edits for the second and third Hobbit movies. :) That is a dream of course.

    That snot-a-rator sounds hilarious! What fun products you get to play with. I'll be visiting your site more to see what you are reviewing next.
