Just for fun, here is my sweet grand daughter, Reylin! Should I enter her in the contest? What do you think?
There's nothing worse than when your little one is uncomfortable with a diaper rash. Diaper rash is no laughing matter, it can lead very quickly to raw skin. A baby's tender skin is very sensitive, and needs extra care. Olen Cosmetics developed the best solution to this dilemma with their Baby Butz Cream.
Majda Ficko created Baby Butz because of her sons extremely rare syndrome…so rare most doctors had never heard of it. She then went on to fight for her son’s needs and never intended to sell the cream, but his doctor saw the cream’s power and encouraged her to do so. To learn more about the Baby Butz story, please read here!
Baby Butz Cream is the safest and most effective diaper rash treatment available without a prescription. It contains 100% natural ingredients and 30% zinc oxide. Baby Butz Cream is a celeb mom favorite and is used in hospital neonatal units. Many pediatricians hand out samples to new parents. Medical professionals have endorsed this cream because it contains no chemicals, no alcohol, no perfumes and is hypoallergenic.
Other Uses for Baby Butz
- Excellent for Eczema
- Baby drool rash (from teething)
- Bug bites...especially mosquito bites...it reduces the itching almost immediately...just a little dab on top of the bite
- Poison Oak and Poison Ivy...kids or yourself walking in the bushes/ tall grasses...applying Baby Butz immediately soothes the itch and burn
- Cold sores...apply a dab and in 2-3 days cold sore is dried up and gone
- Itchy dry skin...a light layer and itchy is gone
- Dry cracked hands and feet...apply a light layer before bedtime...put on cotton gloves/socks....overnight in the morning smooth soft hands and feet.
- Heat rashes
- Other types of skin rashes

I absolutely adore chocolate! Not just any chocolate, mind you. If I am going to eat chocolate, it has to be worth the indulgence because I don't need wasted calories. I need my chocolate to be luxurious, rich and decadent. Well, I found it! I found the kind of heavenly chocolate that only dreams are made of in the form of tinyB Chocolates.
I was given the chance to try out tinyB Chocolate's brigadeiros. tinyB Chocolate's brigadeiros are a heavenly Brazilian cousin to the chocolate truffle, with a smooth, creamy texture but no hard shell.
They taste as delicious as they look! Is your mouth watering yet?
Brigadeiros have an interesting history. They were invented by Brazilian women in the mid-1940s as a product to sell to raise funds for the women’s rights-conscious presidential candidate—Brigadier Eduardo Gomes. They were the Brazilian MAGA hats or HOPE posters of their day! Brigadier Gomes didn’t win the election, but “brigadeiros” became a national tradition and are still made across Brazil to this day. Now, San Franciscan and tinyB founder Renata Stoica (a Sao Paolo native) is using her old family recipe to bring the tradition to America. Renata infuses the brigadeiros with flavors that remind her of home, like passion fruit, pineapple, cayenne pepper, and Brazilian coffee.
Brazil. Bossa nova. Beaches. And now brigadeiros! That’s the essence of tinyB chocolates. They capture the excitement, romance and richness of Brazil in the magic of its favorite national chocolate treat.
Made fresh to order with two-day delivery guaranteed anywhere in the continental US, tinyB offers the hands-on care and service of a local family-owned business blended with international charm and panache.
But at its heart, tinyB is about the happy love story between Renata, a beautiful Brazilian chocolatier, and Andrei, a San Francisco tech entrepreneur. They fell in love, got married and started tinyB in their kitchen as a way to share their love for each other and for brigadeiros with San Francisco and the world.
Renata’s special recipe heightens the chocolate intensity, without the bitterness of dark chocolate or the sweetness of extra sugar. Hand-dipped coatings offer a variety of sensational taste treats.
Just as Renata fell in love with Andrei, I fell in love with tinyB after the first taste! (Of course my husband grabbed the box and we fought over them, which is not a very romantic story, but we did learn to share.) I have never tasted chocolates so fresh, as if they were just made!
Each tinyB is handcrafted and gently placed in gift boxes that are detailed with care because they want you feel that they're made just for you - which they are.
Perfect for sharing, giving and enjoying. Client gifts. Wedding favors. Holiday gifts! Enter to win a box below!
Enter to win! One winner will receive a 15-piece box of brigadeiros from tinyB Chocolates(ARV: $34)

Get ready to fall in love with Alex & Me!
It’s an inspirational tale for the whole family!
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”
Soccer superstar Alex Morgan scores her movie debut with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in the full-length feature film Alex & Me on Blu-ray™ & DVD June 19, 2018.
Also featuring Nickelodeon star Siena Agudong (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and the upcoming Star Falls), the film follows the uplifting story of a young female athlete who learns how you need passion, determination and self-worth to make all your dreams come true.
About Alex & Me: Teenager Reagan Willis (Agudong) has one dream – to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan.
When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes!
An Olympic Gold Medalist and FIFA Women’s World Cup champion with a penchant for goal scoring, Alex Morgan is one of the top soccer players on the planet, currently playing forward for the United States Women's National Team and the Orlando Pride of the National Women's Soccer League. Away from the field, Morgan is also an accomplished author of “The Kicks” series, a collection of chapter books filled with wonderful messages of empowerment for young girls. The first The Kicks book, “Saving the Team,” debuted at No. 7 on the New York Times Best Seller list.
Eric Champnella (Thunderstruck, Mr. 3000, Eddie) wrote the Alex & Me screenplay and is also making his full-length feature debut as the film’s director. Alex Morgan serves as co-producer. Producers are Mike Karz (Blended) and William Bindley (Mother’s Day). Todd Williams (The Illusionist) is the executive producer.
Jerry Trainor (iCarly) also stars as Nigel, a less-than-reliable youth soccer coach, alongside Matt Cornett (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Reagan’s brother, Logan; Colin Critchley (Legends of the Hidden Temple) as Reagan’s soccer-playing pal, Ben; Chuiti Tiu (Nashville) as Reagan’s mother, Ann Wills; and Jim Klock (True Detective, Scream Queens) as Reagan’s father (and biggest fan), Joe Wills. Jessica Treska (HBO’s upcoming Sharp Objects) plays Reagan’s arch-rival, Claire.
**Alex & Me will be available on Blu-ray (SRP $24.98), DVD (SRP $19.98) and Digital (SRP $14.99).
