Cortland CONTIGO Water Bottle Review and Giveaway

One of my New Year Resolutions was to drink more water. I know that I do not drink enough water and I know that my body needs water to make things work right; so one way that I am keeping on track with drinking more water is by filling my Cortland CONTIGO Water Bottle up with water everyday. It holds 24 ounces of water (Plus there's a little wiggle room to throw in some ice; I love ice cold water!). I aim for 96 ounces a day, which is four bottles a day.

I really, really like these water bottles--not only am I helping save the planet by using a  'reusable' water bottle, it does not leak, I can easily keep track with how much water I am drinking each day and it is dishwasher safe on the top rack! No, that is not a typo, it is dishwasher safe!

I will be the first to admit, I have thrown many water bottles away, because I could never wash them 'good enough' to be clean! And because these Cortland CONTIGO Water Bottles are top rack safe in my dishwasher, they have probably found a permanent home on my kitchen counters! 

If your water bottle doesn't need a full washing, maybe you just need to run it under the hot water for a few minutes, the lid is so easy to clean! Just push the small handle and it will open everything up for the hot water to run through---I'm telling you, this water bottle is super is to clean---which huge for this busy mom!

Another neat feature is that you can hook these water bottles onto back packs, purses, gym bags and even your belt loop!  

If you accidentally drop it, it does not spill all over the place. The button lock prevents accidental pressing of the AUTOSEAL® button. Plus, a protective spout cover protects the spout from dirt and germs, which is a huge plus during flu season!

Many people don’t like to drink out of “plastic” water bottles. But no worries with Contigo- these bottles don’t have any plastic odor and are made with FDA-approved, BPA-free Tritan materials. You can feel good about giving your whole family drinks from the Contigo Cortland water bottle!

Buy your Cortland CONTIGO Water Bottle with AUTOSEAL® now and save 20% with code Cortland20.

The Giveaway:
Four (4) Swappin' Spoons will win one (1) Cortland CONTIGO Water Bottle. Just leave a comment below telling me *Why do you need a spill-proof water bottle in your life?*
I will close this giveaway on January 31, 2015 at 11:59PM.
Good Luck!

ChicWrap Dispensers Review

I like bright, pretty things in my kitchen, so I was excited when I received ChicWrap for review. ChicWrap is plastic, foil, and parchment paper in these colorful boxes that will brighten up any kitchen. 

The bright color boxes are not the only neat thing about ChicWrap---You leave the plastic, foil and wax paper in the box, pull out what you need and then use the blade to cut it off when you have pulled out the amount needed.

Watch this short video on how easy and convenient ChicWrap is to use---WATCH VIDEO NOW

And do not worry, there are setup instructions, on the box, how to use ChicWrap for those who do not watch the video or think they can figure it out on their my husband! I shared my ChicWrap with a friend and she loved them!

My favorite ChicWrap is the one pictured above...reminds me of Texas and the many barbecues that we would have growing up as a child. These would have been handy back then, because when we were done eating, the food would sit on the table (our grandmas would sit and 'try' to keep the flies off!) while we went swimming or played games and then we would come back for seconds and thirds!

ChicWrap is very Chic! You cannot walk into most supermarkets and buy it. You will need to purchase it online at, on Amazon or click this link to find a specialty store near you to buy it from.

Gamesformation: Your Favorite Board Games with a Sweet Twist!

Oh the stories I could tell you of our family game nights. When our children were small, we wanted to teach them to win, but when they did lose, to lose with good attitudes!

I can remember my husband and I playing the board game of Monopoly (I love that game) four times in a row, with him winning the first three times and me winning the last time we played. Talk about being a sore loser! Him, not me! Geesh! After my win, he did not speak to me for three days! I am serious, ask him for yourself!

Maybe, just maybe if the game was made out of chocolate, things might have turned out sweeter! Did you know that you can purchase some of your favorite games from Gamesformotion (the games are made out of chocolate)!

The games will have all the essential features as their famous counterparts, except that the cards and letter tiles have been replaced with the finest Belgian milk chocolate encased within playing piece printed wrappers. The rules for the games have been slightly changed for fun and easy play. So now instead of playing for the bragging rights of winning, you can win and walk away with all the chocolate you could ever hope for. Now that’s something to pass 'GO' for!

Gamesformotion has developed into a leading specialist when it comes to chocolate editions of the world’s most popular games.
You can choose from top games such as Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit™, Twister Scrabble®, Pictionary, Cluedo, Chess & Draughts (Checkers), and Poker.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus "The WonderBottle" Review

As a wife and mom, I do all the ironing, but that is okay! I like for all my family to look nice and not wrinkled!  However, there are a few pieces of clothing that my teen girls own that iron perfectly, but by the time we get to church it doesn't even look like they have been ironed! And then there's those white dress shirts that my husband and boys wear, they look great after being ironed, but after riding to church or where ever we may go, by the time we get to our destination their shirts, especially the back of the shirts, are wrinkled pretty badly!

Our family was recently sent the new and improved Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus ----which makes releasing wrinkles from clothes, that you are already wearing, disappear!

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is being called “The WonderBottle,” because it has over 101 uses for the home, family and traveler. In addition to its ability to reduce wrinkles in clothes, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus can be used as a quick-fix solution to remove creases from pillowcases, bed sheets, drapery, tablecloths, cloth napkins, ribbons on holiday decorations and many other household items.

A quick spritz from the WonderBottle can also remove odors and freshen up furniture, pet beds and infant car seats just to name a few. For those who still want to iron, it serves as a better ironing aid than water without the residue of starch. And in a fashion emergency, Downy Wrinkle Release Plus can even save the day by eliminating static cling. Truly a WonderBottle.

The new and improved sprayer delivers a finer mist and broader coverage to reduce drying time. Downy Wrinkle Release Plus works to eliminate wrinkles by coating fabric fibers with silicone that allows them to relax and slide apart instead of being frozen in a crease. Simply spray, smooth and tug, then allow fabric to dry for a crisp, fresh smelling and wrinkle-free look in minutes.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is sold in a 1-liter bottle for $6.99 and a 500 mL bottle for $4.19. It is also available in a travel-friendly 3-ounce size for $1.99. Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is sold at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Kroger, Publix and many other grocery, drug, and mass retailers.
