GOTYGOTY Hotwear Review

gotygoty7Let’s talk about an easy to add to your current routine workout tool:  GotyGoty Hotwear.  Now that all the parties and celebrations are over and all the food and celebratory wine are out of site again I am a little sad that I didn’t make more of an effort to maintain.  Much like the rest of our great nation I gained a few pounds over the holidays.   It’s what we do.  We celebrate by eating spectacular food and drinking sometimes more than our fair share of wine with loved ones.  It’s all fun and games until your pants don’t fit!

Once you are at that stage, it’s so hard to take the weight off again.  I know all of us wish the weight came off just as quickly and easily as it went on but that’s not reality.  Reality is that you have to work off to get that weight off.  Diet and Exercise takes a lot of time out of our already too busy schedules.

The founder of GOTYGOTY Hotwear understood this and has been working hard to come up with this line of “Hot Wear” out of Toronto, Canada.   “The name GOTYGOTY originates from a South Africa slang, the homeland of the Greatest and Famous Nelson Mandela (Madiba). GOTY means beautiful. GOTY also stand for Girl Of The Year.”

“The science behind the product

GotyGoty Hot slimming pants and tops were tested on 100 women ages  18 to 65 years.
Women were asked to wear a GOTYGOTY pant and top for a period of only 30-60 minutes every day for 21 to 30 days. The women could wear the gear for a workout or when simply performing standard household chores. They were also encouraged to make healthy choices concerning what they ate and drank.
Just 4 weeks into the test, the results were surprising. Here are the 30-Day average results reported.

On weightloss Average loss after 30 days
Loss around the waist 4 cm to 10 cm / 1.5 inch to  4 inch
Loss on the hips 3 cm to 6 cm / 1.20 inch to  2.5 inch
Loss around the thighs 5 cm to 10 cm / 2 inch to  4 inch
Loss on the stomach 100% saw a reduction of their stomach

 

On the appearance of Cellulite
95% of the participants confirmed that the GotyGoty gear was a great way to reduce the appearance of cellulite on their thigh, butt, and stomach. 90% said that their skin feel more smoother & softer than before.

 

On Well-Being
95% of the participants said that they feel happier and more energetic after each use of the product.100% said that working out with GotyGoty Gear as opposed to wearing standard workout cloths make them sweat much more and quicker depending on fitness level

95% will definitely keep using the GotyGoty gear on a regularly basis”

 

I have gave  this product a chance.  Once day I wore the pants and top just doing normal activity that I do every day.  I walked around my house picking up after FB.  I grab the older girls from school.  I even wore them up to the school for some PTA work that I had to do making copies.  I was warm all day.  I never felt chilled, like I usually do, so I know it was raising my body’s core temperature.

gotygoty2

I also wore the same pants and top to get on my elliptical another time.  Boy was that awesome!  I was dripping sweat within 1o minutes of my workout, which isn’t typical.  So, my thoughts on GOTYGOTY Hotwear?  I recommend it!  I think you should follow the suggestion of wearing it at least 5 days a week.  I don’t like how you have to hand wash it, because what busy mom has time for that, but I do understand it.  This isn’t made with your regular cotton or blend, this is highly tested technology!

The hotwear pants were tight, but not too much.  The top was more loose than I expected but not teribly bad.  I just may have needed to get a smaller size (big smile).  The material is very thick and if you have thighs like me, then you’ll hear a loud rubbing sound as you walk.  You get use to it and can wear the pants under your own workout wear.

gotygoty3

I feel comfortable wearing this out in public.  There were no lumps and bumps that you could see through the thick material.  I did have to wear a sports bra under the top.  You can get away with just getting one peice at a time and using that.  If you get the pants, your core body temperature is going to increase, just like if you only wear a top.  I can’t wait to see what the addition of having GOTYGOTY Hotwear in my workout gear does over the next six months to a year.

Cinderella at the Ensemble Theatre Now – January 3, 2016

My family was lucky enough to be invited to an advanced showing of Cinderella at the Ensemble Theatre.  I didn’t know what to expect, except that it was a “Family-Friendly Musical” and there was a pink sneaker involved, which I assumed took the place of the glass slipper, but what do I know.  I decided to take all three of my girls and my mama.  I figured three generations is enough to get a true evaluation of “Family-Friendly”, right?

cinderella 1

First, let’s start off with the show that we went to was scheduled for 2:00 p.m.  That is right smack dab in the middle of FB’s nap time.  She’s still napping and desperately needs them most days.  This was one of those days.  I questioned my decision on whether I should have brought her and almost called my husband in tears to come pick her up.  She was most certainly in rare form that day (that’s a big fat lie, she was like this most days that she missed a nap but I like to pretend I know what I’m doing in raising these girls).  Despite my gut feeling of running far from the threenager, I stuck it out.

IMG_0842

As they introduced the audience to their version and thanked us for being there, I had FB on my lap wriggling and squirming all over the place.  I was already regretful of being there, but still excited to see what was to come.  I tell you about FB’s actions and my mood to show just how AMAZING this production is.

cinderella 2

The run time of Cinderella is 1 hour and 45 minutes and has one intermission.   I expected to literally be in tears before the end of the show.  I was almost in tears but not from agony of dealing with FB.  We laughed so hard during the performance that I thought I might actually pee.

Director’s Notes:

“…In Many incarnations of Cinderella, the beauty of Cinderella was sincere as to her character and her appearance.  Our Cinderella wears converse shoes, glasses, and loves hanging out in the garden with a toad, a spider, and a crow.  She is not on the path to becoming a princess…”

The Ensemble Theatre’s version of Cinderella had three different generations on the edge of their seats the entire time.  The entire audience literally laughed out loud over and over again.  It was a fun and sassy twist of the story that we all know and love.  I honestly didn’t know how the production would keep my mama and me entertained since we’ve seen Cinderella and many versions of it so many times, but we loved it.

IMG_0866 (1)

I enjoyed the entire 11 person cast but fell madly in love with the two step sisters. The reminded me so much of my FB, with their sass and wit, I just wanted to reach out and hug them both.  We did get a chance to meet the entire cast after the performance.   I urge you to visit the Ensemble Theatre on Vine Street to see Cinderella December 2, 2015 – January 3, 2016.  It truly is family friendly.  If my sleep deprived threenage can turn into a sweet girl (without a Fairy God-mother) then this is the show for all!  I can’t wait to see what the Ensemble Theatre has in store for Cincinnat in the future.

Baby J has new wheels!

Baby J and I (Messy Mamma Toni) have been test driving the Urbini Swiftli (a lightweight stroller).  As a mom of 6 I’ve experience a lot of strollers, from umbrella to our big and bulky double stroller. With have 3 little ones (5, 3, 1) I still have a need for my double stroller, the 5 year old would rather take a ride than walk and I still have to pack a bag if not more. However, what about those times where I just have Baby J do I really need to back up the stroller but he’s still too little to walk along with me or I could carry but he’s a chunky monkey these days. I began to think about lightweight strollers. I wanted something sturdy, lightweight, and space saver in the car.

I came across the Urbini Swiftli lightweight stroller and thought I’d give it a try. Very eye appealing and easy on the wallet.

It has a removable foam padded arm bar, large canopy, attachable parent cup holder, adjustable leg rest, multi-positioning reclining seat (you don’t get that on your standard umbrella stroller), and a five-point safety harness. All this and it’s only 17 pounds!

When the stroller arrived all I needed to do was pop those wheels on. I’m the mom that can’t seem to put anything together! This made me happy! It glides smoothly, even across gravel – truly tested!

20150826_131314_resized

The only thing that bummed me out was the basket, or the lack there of one. There is a small basket but I still need to pack a diaper bag (until someone can convert me to a backpack). I have to rely on the handles to hang the bag (s).

Home Safety Tips to Remember for Baby Safety Month

Home Safety Tips to Remember for Baby Safety Month

From the experts at Safety 1st

As a parent every month is Baby Safety Month, but with little ones growing up fast September is a great time to take a step back and make sure your home safety efforts are up to date. From the crawler to the pitter patter of little feet Safety 1st has tips to make sure your child has the freedom to explore your home safety at every age and skill level,

For The Crawler

Outlets, drawers and sharp corners. Many of the hazards in your home are below your knees and directly within a little crawlers reach. Getting down on your hands and knees to view your home from your child’s perspective is a great way to begin childproofing. Seeing the world from their view can give perspective to the potential hidden dangers in your home.

·        Whether it’s the kitchen or the play room, sharp corners are inevitable. Soften the edges with Foam Edge Protectors or an Expandable Table Edge Bumper[CE1]  from Safety 1st.
·        Outlets are another danger at eye level with your little crawler. Outlet plugs are an easy and effective way to avoid electrical dangers.
·        Pay close attention to the cupboards that are the easiest for your crawler to open and make sure the items in that cupboard are safe for your child to play with – if not make sure you put a lock on it.

For The Climber

New climbers bring home safety checks to a whole new level. While we pass quickly through hallways and stairwells, they are a climber’s favorite place to play.

·        A climber has to climb! It’s OK to teach your child how to climb the stairs but she should only do so when you’re right behind her, every step of the way.
·        At the top of the stairs, always use a gate that can be installed with hardware, rather than a pressure fit gate. For the bottom of the stairwell try Safety 1st’s Lift, Lock & Swing Gate[CE2] .
·        Also, make sure to move potentially dangerous items out of reach, especially in the kitchen and bathroom.
·        Keep toy bins away from a window. Children will find a way to climb on top of the toy bin or stack toys on top of one another to look outside.  According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) one of every three children required hospitalization after falling from a window.
·        Secure TVs and furniture to the wall using Safety 1st Furniture Wall Straps to prevent tip-overs. These kinds of accident happen more than you might think so take a few minutes, secure your TV and furniture, and then never worry about it again.

For The On-Foot Explorer

From kitchen appliances to bathroom cabinets, the on-foot explorer loves to find trouble anywhere it is available. Walking toddlers call for undivided attention at all times – or locks, latches and covers of all sorts.

·        Ovens and stoves are hot and can burn your child. It is a good idea to use the back burners of your stove whenever possible and remember to turn pot and pan handles in, and away from the edge of the stove. Reinforce with your toddler that the oven is hot and he or she should not touch it.
·        Cabinets and drawers contain many hazards, such as cleaning supplies, plastic bags, breakable and sharp objects, and food that can be a choking hazard. Be sure to lock all cabinets and drawers to keep your child away from the contents. Multi-Purpose Appliance Locks[CE3]  and Press ‘n Pivot Latches[CE4]  are great for keeping hazardous items out of reach.
·        Exploring is good but some adventures shouldn’t be taken without a parent. High Door Locks[CE5]  help keep on-foot explorers from wandering into unwanted areas.

 

To get started on childproofing your home this month try the 46 piece Essentials Baby Proofing Kit[CE6] .

Baby J is movin’ on up!

Well the time has come, Baby J is graduating from his infant car seat. Tears. Baby J is the last of the Js, its hard to pack up all of the “baby” stuff and bring in the big boy stuff!  Next on the list was a new seat. He has maxed out his length on his infant seat.

We had been looking around various stores, getting ideas on the next best car seat, keeping in mind all the new laws, and comfort. We knew we wanted something that was going to last for a few years.

We received the Safety 1st Grow and Go 3-in-1 car seat to review. I’ve never seen a kid get so excited (or maybe it’s just been that long since we have introduced a new seat). I was excited when it arrived, it was all put together (I dislike putting things together and usually have to wait for my husband to get home). Adjusting the straps to fit Baby J was quick and simple. Installation to the car was simple (but if you need more help Safety 1st offers a series of videos to help you)!

DSC_0199

Baby J sits comfortably in the car seat, he likes being up where he can see everyone now. Even the big sisters felt they needed a turn in the seat. Since the car seat is a 3-in-1, rear/front facing and booster seat we went ahead and tested it out.  J5 was first because it was just a matter of turning the car seat around and barely adjusting the straps (she’s a tiny girl). She is three, she fit comfortable, to the point she wanted to trade Baby J seats forever she said. J4 patiently waited for her turn, the booster seat! She is 5 and never enjoyed a car seat. She too wanted to switch with her brother.

Transitioning the car seat to each stage was quick and easy and I know that Baby J will be comfortable until he outgrows this seat.

The features and specifics:
The Safety 1st® Grow and Go™ 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat, in the Boulevard style, is the car seat built to grow with your child. It features an adaptable design that transforms from a rear-facing car seat to a forward-facing car seat and finally to a belt-positioning booster seat. Grow with baby body pillows give a snug fit and remove easily as your child outgrows them. The Quick-Fit™ Harness System allows you to change both the headrest and harness height in one simple step for a proper fit. Integrated harness holders make getting your child in and out of the seat a breeze. No more fishing for the harness and clips from behind your child. For all ages, the car seat pad makes cleanup simple. Machine washable and dryer safe, it is also designed to come off the seat easily, with no need to remove the harness. This extended use car seat features a no re-thread harness, buckle holders, dual cup holders and a removable seat cover.

Rear-facing for babies 5 – 40 lbs., up to 40″ tall
Forward-facing for children 22 – 65 lbs., up to 52″ tall
Booster seat for children 40 – 100 lbs.

The Grow and Go is exclusively available for $169.99 at Babies ‘R’ Us.

With many families hitting the road this summer and the upcoming 4th of July holiday, Safety 1st wants to make sure parents and children have a safe summer while on the go.

Oh The Places You’ll Go – Travel Safety This Summer, By Safety 1st

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 75% of car seats on the road are installed incorrectly. Here are some easy tips to think about before hitting the road.

  • The safest place to install a car seat is typically in the center of the rear seat.
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises parents to keep their toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age 2. It also advises that most children will need to ride in a belt-positioning booster seat until they have reached 4 feet 9 inches tall and are between 8 and 12 years of age.
  • Check in with a local Child Passenger Safety Technician to ensure your child’s seat is installed correctly. You can visit a local police station, fire station, AAA office or Safe Kids Chapter for guidance.

Where is Baby?

  • It may seem like common sense but never, leave a child alone in the car.  Hyperthermia is a severe form of heat stroke and last year 30 children died after being left or trapped in a hot vehicle.  You can learn more about this issue and easy tips to prevent it here.

Safeguard the Car

  • Just as important as safe guarding your home, don’t forget about the car. Especially on long road trips. It’s important to eliminate projectiles, anything in the car that is not secured is a possible projectile. That could be a child’s toy, wet nap container, or a water bottle. In a crash, objects take on greater weight due to crash forces.
  • Make sure unused shoulder belts are not in reach of children as they can pose strangulation risk.

Car Seats Expire

  • Car seats expire. Especially if you get a hand-me-down car seat you should always check the expiration date to confirm the seat is safe for your child. You can find the expiration date on the back or the side of the car seat.  Also, another very important tip – once a car seat has been in a crash you should not use it, plastic can warp and materials can fray.  To properly dispose of a car seat check with your local waste management facility to see if they recycle number 5 plastic.

Our Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi finally came!

It finally came! So we had to wait a little while before our Maxi-Taxi arrived, which made it more exciting when it was delivered to my door step! We have already been using the Maxi-Cosi infant seat and baby J seemed to enjoy the comfort of the seat. When our taxi arrived I immediately convinced my husband that we needed to put it together. Assembly was quick and easy, snapping on wheels and the braces that was it! We were ready to go! Our first trip, why of course to the baseball field because that is our second home in the spring and summer months!

We took out our big bulky double stroller added all of our necessities for going to games (everything but the kitchen sink) to keep a 10, 4, 3 and a 1 year old happy for 2 or more hours. It’s a lot! The Maxi-Taxi folds up and takes up no more space than a sack chair!  There was actually room to add the girls new wagon! This made them very happy!

car1

Baby J is one (still within weight and height requirements) and very mobile so I will have to admit that once we get from the car to the field he goes immediately into the portable play yard we have. However, when we are going shopping, the park, indoor amusement or anything that we won’t be standing still for a long period he is in his Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi traveling system!

On Target’s website key features are: Light. Quick. Easy. Done.Maxi-Cosi lets you and your baby enjoy every moment out and about with the clever Maxi-Taxi infant car seat carrier. The Maxi-Taxi is the perfect lightweight solution that lets you keep your infant snuggly in their car seat as you transfer them to the stroller frame. Simple and quick to fold and unfold, the Maxi-Taxi stores easily in your car. Open it up and attach your favorite car seat. The wheels on the Maxi-Taxi let you maneuver through your day with ease. A storage basket gives you a place for larger items, while the three-compartment, zip-to-close Parent Tray attaches between the handle bars letting you keep smaller items close by. With the Maxi-Taxi on hand, you’ll be ready to go wherever the day’s journey takes you.  

I was afraid that I was loosing my storage basket from the double stroller that stored the diaper bags, jackets and whatever else the girls need to take but then no longer feel like carrying but the basket below on the Maxi-Taxi is large enough that it held the diaper bag, my kids coats, my friend’s kids coats and bag. The Parent Tray, can I just say it has a zipper! No worries of my phone, mimi (pacifier) or wallet falling out and it is quick access instead of digging down into my diaper bag.

There is no downside in using this travel system once I get it clicked correctly into place. I have trouble with lining the sides up exactly each time. I get a bit flustered but it goes away once I hear the click and go! Getting used to pushing two buttons and pulling is tricky at times but I have been using the same style of carseat that involved pulling the back since my first baby 16 years ago. I am so amazed how far baby gear has come from the first to the last. And the Maxi-Taxi is on my list of things to have!

The Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi is only available online at Target.com, you can read my review on my visit to Target.com here!

You can find the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi and other great Maxi-Cosi products by visiting their website.

Buying the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi online a success!


I was delighted when Confessions of a Messy Mama asked if Baby J and I would like to participate in a review of the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi by purchasing it online at Target.com. Buying items that Baby J and I could use without spending my own money (because baby items seem to be so expensive these days) sounded great!

I have used online ordering before – ok maybe alot – almost 99% of Christmas gifts get purchased and delivered without me putting on my “real” clothes! I love Target already so I knew what to expect. I do generally love to go in the store, always coming out with more than what my list originally had. I love the cartwheel app.

When I received my Target giftcard I immediately switched from what I was doing and went to Target.com. I did a quick search, I had the exact link but I thought if someone didn’t then I wanted to make sure that with a few keywords it would appear. I Typed in Maxi-Cosi, the items were displayed. I clicked on the Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi Infant Car Seat Carrier. I have used a travel system before, well I used a double stroller that my infant seat fit on. Its huge. I was excited reading the details that Target provided. Storage Basket Beneath Seat, Folds Up for Easy Transport, Compact Fold, Folds for Storage, Click and Lock Base, Storage Basket, 1 Built-in Cup Holder for Parent, Cup and 22 pounds! You are able to click on the different images for more views of the Maxi-Taxi.

I clicked on the BIG RED BOX – add to cart. Simple!!!!

Shipping was FREE! I met the minimum spending amount needed.

blog2Since I already had account with Target I signed in and completed my order. You can also complete your order as a guest and you are still able to track your order. The hassle of going through the store, checking out, and the weather (its freezing here) was all avoided!

Now the worse part…..waiting for the delivery! We do love when the brown truck comes down the street, the kids instantly run to the window to see if hes making a stop at our house.

Right now we are waiting for our Maxi-Taxi to arrive . The Maxi-Cosi Maxi-Taxi is for use with the Maxi-Cosi Mico® Nxt infant car seat which we are already using and love (review to come later).

Can’t wait to share the rest of the review with you!

Welcome Not So Messy Mama Toni

Hello followers of Confessions of a Messy Mama!  My name is Toni, and I am beyond thrilled to join Amy and contribute to Confessions of a Messy Mama. I am a stay at home/work from home mom that includes taking care of three younger kids while three older ones all attend school.  If you did the math correctly that is 6 kids! Ages 16, 14, 10, 4, 3, and 10 months (4 girls and 2 boys)!  I may not be as messy but that doesn’t mean I run an immaculate house either.

I am truly blessed to be given the opportunity to work from home with flexible hours, my work family is awesome. Its not the big bucks and we rely on husband (which is also my high school sweetheart) that works extremely hard for our family allowing me this opportunity of being a work at/stay at home mom.

I am sure to some we appear to have it all together but behind closed doors getting ready to head anywhere is a show of its own! My ability to plan ahead and keeping things on a schedule keeps us going :)

Little Twig and Sparrow Pajama Review

I was asked to review Little Twig and Sparrow Pajamas.  I was hesitant because all three of my girls are very particular about their clothes.  If it doesn’t have their favorite characters on it or if it’s not super comfortable they don’t want to wear it.  I almost said no but then I realized that my oldest was outgrowing a lot of her clothing including pajamas.  So, I thought “why not?”  At best she ends up with a great pair of PJ’s that she loves and at worst I can let you all know that it’s not a good product.

Little Twig 2

I was lucky to have the best outcome.  My girls are so picky that they go as far as wearing their clothes (mostly PJ’s and socks)  inside out.  It drives me crazy but I have to pick my battles, right? Drama not only thought the Little Twig and Sparrow Pajamas were super comfy but she loved the look of them!  They are her new favorite!

Little Twig1

“Little Twig and Sparrow Pajamas

Little Twig and Sparrow’s cool, comfy, and fun pajamas made from soothing Tanguise cotton from Peru will help your little sleepyheads drift off to dreamland in happiness each school night. These jammies feature modish designs and are durable enough for rough and tumble play before bed, yet snuggly enough to be the only pair of PJ’s your kids will want to wear. They also have a unique fitted cut with soft pillowy colors that kids love. The extremely fine and exceptionally durable fabric is ideal for girls and boys alike to run around the house on lazy pajama-rama days or snuggling at story time before bed.  They also have a unique patch motif in colors and designs that are appealing to both boys and girls. Each pair retails for $49.99.”

Little Twig 3

I think Drama’s second favorite part of the Little Twig and Sparrow Pajamas is the matching pouch that the PJs come in.  You know how kids are, give them a gift and they play with the box it came in.  I love how sweet she is!
