Potty Covers

Introducing the #PottyCover, a disposable toilet seat cover for children (and adults) that covers the sides and the front of the toilet, to keep away germs at public restrooms.

I thought it was a neat idea, since some places have pretty questionable washrooms and while an adult can do the hover… or just plain hold it if you can’t get somewhere clean, a child cannot. And there is almost never an actual seat cover in bathrooms these days, just a big empty hole where they used to be stored.

My son is almost two, and loves, I mean LOVES the potty… not so with the “big ones.” I thought that maybe having a cool seat cover on it, even just at home might make him more interested in going on the full sized toilet. For him, it didn’t work, he just wanted to play with it, and apparently a “paw patrol” insert (he likes puppies even more than the potty) was what he needed to want to sit there for a long time…. with a book.

But I DO know, what works for one parent (or doesn’t) will not be the same for another. If your child, maybe an older one even, will be all over this product.

This polka-dotted cover is made of a non-woven fabric coated with a layer of plastic, creating a waterproof barrier between the toilet and the user. It covers not only the top of the seat, but also the front and a large amount of the side too (sorry I forgot to take one of our toilet…. )

Each #pottycover was wrapped in a individual package, which would make this easier to carry in either a purse, diaper bag, stroller, vehicle, etc.

A pack of PottyCover is available online: Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, their website, all Buy Buy Baby stores around the country (USA) and at select Bed Bath & Beyond stores.
They are also being sold in Hong KongJapanPhilippines  and the United Kingdom.
I was shipped a sample of this product in order to review. I was not compensated to write this post (nor any post you guys see here).

Blotting Paper

So this is something, until recently, I had never heard of before (I’ve reviewed a similar product like this, made from Bamboo Charcoal back in August).

The instructions are super easy and basic to follow. Open the box, take out a sheet and dab it on your face.

It will remove all of the oil on your face without leaving any residues. This is a product that men can use if they get a shiny face as well. For women, especially those who wear makeup, you can use this to remove the excess oils, without ruining your look since there is no rubbing to remove oils, as washing your face would do.

It did not bother my sensitive skin, but with the added products (apparently antioxidants and green tea) I found that it did not absorb as much, or as fast as the other one I had tried, however, it does have the added bonus of those which will apparently benefit your skin, and at a reduced cost.

They are available HERE on Amazon.ca currently selling at $9.99 for 100 sheets.

Netopia

I initially wanted to review this book because, well, I used to be mega addicted to Neopets. Common… it was before Facebook people… what else was there to do in the year 2000 when you were not watching Pokemon?
 
I received a PDF version, so I am working my way through a little slower than normal as it’s much smaller and harder to see. So far, it’s a decent read, but I need to get a few more chapters in before I can let you know my full opinion on this book. It will be coming out on the 8th of Feb for everyone to buy however, so I wanted to give you the chance to check it out. It is currently on pre-order for 3.99
 
This is how the promoter summarized the book
 
Netopia tells the story of a future world, without a defined time or place, ruled by an advance social network called “Minds”. In this network users communicate through thoughts. You can create any reality and make any fantasy come true. In this perfect aesthetic-sterile world you can even customize the weather.
 
Memory drugs rerun the experiences of the users, who instead of warm human relationships prefer to raise neopets, cloned, engineered and malleable creatures such as red panda-cats, orca-penguins or angora-owls. But those connected to Minds quickly discover that this fantastic network comes with a particularly chilling price tag.

Captive DVD Giveaway

As some of you may remember, I did a review awhile ago on a book I received called Captive. You can check that one out HERE if you’ve forgotten.

Ashley Smith, a recovering drug-addict (who is barely clinging to the wagon) is abducted outside her home and held hostage by Brian Nichols.

In the movie, as with all films based on a book, there are some details missing. One early example is that in the book she goes to the store to get cigarettes, but in the movie she just gets a package from her car. While some things were changed or omitted, I did feel that the movie was fairly true to the novel.

I did not personally find this movie to be very fast paced, and I would not call this a movie theater film, I do feel its a good rental type movie, or one to own in your collection. Knowing that this is all based on a true story makes this so much more real for me.

Feel free to check out the OFFICIAL WEBSITE, in addition to checking them out on FACEBOOK and/or TWITTER.
