Soda Stream Review

Did you know that you can make your own sodas at home? With the SodaStream system you can. This system enables you to carbonate water and flavor carbonated beverages right at your home. There are over 25 great flavors, including diet, regular, and caffeine-free.

I was able to try out the SodaStream over the weekend. It was super easy to set up and I made my very own soda within a matter of minutes.

The kit I received came with a variety of flavors: Cola Free, Ginger Ale, Diet Lemon Lime, Diet Pink Grapefruit, Green Tea, Cranberry-Raspberry, and an Energy Drink mix. These were the smaller bottles, which make 50 servings, or 12 liters. The larger bottles are the Sparkling Natural Flavors. I received Cola, Root Beer, and Black Currant and Pear. They each make 25 servings, or 6 liters.

In the box with the machine, I got a sample pack of 6 flavors to try. These sample packs each make 1 liter.

I also received a 3 pack of all natural, unsweetened MyWater flavor essence. With these, you add just a drop to sparkling water for a splash of fruity flavor.

The first soda I made was the orange. To make the soda, you screw the carbonator in the back of the machine. Then fill water in the plastic bottle to the "Fill" line and screw it on in the front. Next, press the button on the top in short presses until you hear 3 loud buzzes. You can add more fizz if you'd like. Now its time to add the flavor. You just fill the cap of the desired flavor and add it slowly to the water, close the bottle, and shake gently to mix. Then you have homemade soda!

You can purchase the SodaStream system and their soda mixes online or in stores. The SodaStream systems start at $79.95. To find a store near you, you can visit this website.

*I received a SodaStream Kit for my review. All opinions are my own*

PetCakes Review and Giveaway

My daughter loves any kind of stuffed animal. She carries them around everywhere she goes. Whether it is outside, to the store, or even to bed, she has one. When I saw PetCakes, I knew I would have to get one for her and see what it is all about.

F8010 - Series 2  3-2-11.jpg

What is a PetCake you ask? Well, PetCakes is a cute and adorable plush pet collectible that is for any child ages 3 and up. It is a cute plush animal with a hat that is shaped like the frosting on a cupcake. The plush sits in a wrapper and when it is pressed down, it really looks like a cupcake. They are manufactured by the Well Made Toy Manufacturing Corporation.

PetCakes sent me not one, but two of their plush animals from the Series 2 Forest Animals Collection to review. I was very surprised on how fast it shipped out. I was not expecting the package to arrive just 3 days after giving my shipping address. Very Impressive!  You should have seen my daughter when I opened the box. Her eyes lit up and she was very excited to play with them.

One of the plush PetCakes I received was Honey Cakes. This is a Plush Bear with an orange "frosting" hat with cute honey bees on it topped with a cherry. It sits inside of a yellow wrapper.

The other plush PetCakes I received was Bamboo Berry. This is a Plush Panda with a blue "frosting" hat also topped with a cherry. It sits inside of a purple wrapper.

You can purchase PetCakes Series 2 Forest Animals for $12.99 each. Right now they are having a special. If you buy 4 or more Petcakes Collectibles plush toys you receive the PetCakes Collectibles Minis 4 pack FREE you only have to pay an additional $1.99 shipping & handling.

One Lucky Winner will receive a PetCake Series 2 Forest Animal Plush. It will be chosen by the company.
