Drop Stop is a Must Have Automobile Accessory!!! Win one HERE!

I have always loved the show Shark Tank.  John and I watch the show religiously.  Most of the ideas that the entrepreneurs  bring to the tank are really clever.  I am not sure what specifically attracts me to the show, If I had to give one reason it would be because the ideas are all organic.  These people come in the tank with ideas they pull from real life.  Inspired by a problem they faced in life and they created the solution.

Imagine how delighted I was one day when I receive an email from the inventor of a product that was on Shark Tank.  Marc Cowan along with Jeffery Simon and Marc Newburger invented something called a Drop Stop.  Marc Cowan reached out to me and together we discussed the product.  I had seen the episode and was super excited when they did in fact make the deal with Lori Greiner.  While I had seen the episode.  Loved the idea.  And cheered along with America when they made their deal, I had never seen one up close.

That soon changed.

I am now a proud owner of Drop Stop.  But before I tell you about my thoughts on it, I would like to inform you more on what it is exactly. 


It is simple.  It is a long padded item that you insert between your car seat to close up the gaps.  This prevents anything from ever falling in between your seats.  This is important because, it can be life saving.  How many times have you or someone you known dropped a key or a phone (shouldn’t have your phone out anyways) between the seat and you had to really work to get it out?  It is just a pain if your parked somewhere.  If your driving and reaching for something it can get really dangerous.  Who wants to risk their lives grabbing for that quarter or that lost french fry?  Ladies,  who wants to actually risk breaking one of those new nails off?  Not me!

Check out this commercial for Drop Stop so you can see what it is exactly:

I received mine and liked what I saw.  They fit perfect between my seats.  I like how they fit right over my seat belt and don’t make it difficult to take that on and off.  It has turned out to be a wonderful car accessory and I can honestly say I haven’t dropped anything between the seats.  In fact this has kept me from having to try and reach under there with a hand vacuum.   It seems like everything goes in between those seats.  Sometimes I wonder if there isn’t some secret magnet that pulls things out of our hands in between the seats haha.
My first impression when taking them out of the box was these look nice.  They are black so they fit well with the car.  The stitching on them is stitched up well. 
While I stated earlier I don’t use a phone when driving.  In fact my phone is either in the glove box or my purse while driving.  It is only there for if I need it for emergencies.  Chances are this drop stop would never be used to prevent me from losing my phone.  I can tell you what it is perfect for.  Have you ever been driving and the back of your earring fall off and you lose the earring?  Mine did that while I was driving the other day.  Guess where I found it?  Yes.  Right on the Drop Stop!  No doubt I would’ve had to have dug it out from between those seats if I Hadn’t had the Drop stop.
These come 2 in a pack and in my opinion well worth it!
Are you ready to get your own?  They are available at Walmart. 
You can also find out more about them by going to their website www.buydropstop.com

Mavel Pets Blue Dog toy – Win one for your own dog!


I just wrote a post about one of Foxy’s favorite toys, the colorful dog toy.  Now I want to tell you about another one he was sent from Mavel pets


This one is another one that foxy likes to chew on and it is more for fetch instead of catch.  This is due to the weight of it.  It is A rubber dog chew.  It is rubber.  It is blue.  It looks more like a bar bell type of toy.  But it is supposed to look more bone shape. 

I really like that this bone shaped rubber toy has spikes and grooves along the center.  It is designed this way for your dogs teeth.  It helps to grind them as well as knock down plaque.


It really is well made.  Foxy has chewed and played with it for about a month now, and he hasn’t managed to destroy it.  That shows me it is quality made. 

If you have a younger puppy that is into chewing, this would be a nice safe toy that I would recommend to all pet parents.

It is available on Amazon.

Chance to win a colorful, Cool Squeaky Dog Chew Toy!

If I had to name one item that we have purchased several of in the last year, I would have to say that item would be dog toys in general.  Foxy loves his toys and always has.  He is always up for a game of fetch, catch, tug or chew.  He is almost like a child when it comes to getting something new.

When we go out and come back in he tends to look for things.  We finally agreed that the toys had to become less often and we treat him and Cleo with things like bones and rawhides for their teeth. 

That doesn’t stop him for always hoping that there will be something round or squeaky somewhere in that bag of groceries, or in the latest Amazon box that shows up at our door.  Sometimes those Amazon boxes does have something for him.

Like this Cute orange bear chew toy.  It was almost everything Foxy enjoyed in one.  The tail was a rope toy. It was a stuffy and it even had a squeaky toy in it. Foxy loved it and spent several hours carrying it around, playing with it and just doing Foxy things with it..  I may be speaking in past tense here.  I shouldn’t do that.  He still has his orange bear and plays daily with it.  It is just a bit different now.

The stitching did rip.  The stuffing was going everywhere.  John wanted to toss it, but I didn’t.  So I removed all the stuffing and made him an unstuffed orange bear and he still loves it.  I have bought him unstuffed animals and he loves them all so this one was just another one of those to him. 

Other then the incident with the stuffing, this bear squeak toy was super cute and worth the price.  It is now available on Amazon.

100% Hand Knit Children’s Toy GIVEAWAY!





With the holidays coming up, it is time to find perfect gifts for the people in our lives.  Some people is easy to shop for – while others it is almost downright impossible to come up with something for.  Well it used to be.  It used to be that the only thing I could think to buy the men in my family was aftershave, colognes, socks, handkerchiefs etc.   Now there is so many options out there.  We just have to match the personality up with the item.

The easiest to buy for is the younger kids. So so many toy options out there available.  I have found the problem with buying toys is there is several of the same kinds out there.  It isn’t fun for the child to open up 2 of the same gifts.  And then there is also the thought factor to consider. 

My personal preference isn’t something with the biggest price tag.  But with the biggest meaning.  A card, a home made item.  They mean a lot.  I also like to purchase things that everybody else isn’t buying.  I like to think outside of the box and go unique.  It doesn’t matter if the giftee is 6 months or 60 years.


So what can you buy a baby that is different?  How about a Zubel.  What is a Zubel?    Zubels are 100% cotton (some organic) hand knit toys, hats and sweaters which are sureto be cherished and loved by children of all ages.

Zubels were born of a creative group working together to bring smiles to children.  There was a need for an eco-friendly yet purposeful toy whose only requirement was a little love and imagination.

I had the pleasure of seeing a few of the toys up close and personal.  One of them being Lil – Dimples the Whale. Zubels hand crochet clip on whale is part of our Lil’ Dimples collection featuring toys that are hand crocheted using 100% cotton yarn. These toys also feature a small crochet loop on the back of the neck that is perfect for clipping onto stollers, diaper bags, back packs, key chains and more!

Lil Dimples Turtle is also hand crocheted and oh so cute!  I would so clip him on my purse or hang him in my car.  These 4 inch items are also perfect for small hands to grasp.


DISCLAIMER:  I received the product discussed in this post in exchange for my unbiased opinion.

The hand rattles they have are super cute.  I was able to see the giraffe  and was really impressed.

These are items that are made with love and items that probably won’t be repeated so a child will end up with doubles.  They are something that people will be asking you where you found them at and I must admit has been one review item that I loved the moment I received them in the mail.

Are you wanting to learn more about them?  Go to their site and register to receive updates, learn of giveaways and receive coupons.  You can also find them on Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest!

Sound Intone I65 Stereo Foldable Headphone GIVEAWAY!





I love background noise during the day.  As soon as I wake up the television comes on.  Most of the time it is playing and I am not watchng it.  If the tv isn’t on then I am listening to music.  But as with most things, there is always an exception to the rule.  I can’t really read and get into a book with any noise.  I have to have a quiet spot, normally in my bed at night. That is just me though.  I am sure we are all different. 

When I do listen to music, my husband doesn’t always appreciate my choice of music.  Maybe I have listened to “All about that Bass” and your “Lips of moving” one too many times.  On second thought, can you listen to them too many times?  Of course John says yes, maybe because the looks I am giving him as the words come out?  Either way I have started using headphones. 

disclaimer:  I received these at a discounted price in exchange for sharing my unbiased opinion of them.


The headphones I am using now has really been good.  The are the Sound intone I65 foldable headphones

I like them because not only do they fit tight on my ears so I can hear my music, they also limit my sound to my ears.  That way I don’t have to worry about disturbing the people around me. 

These also works perfect with Skype calls because it has a built in microphone. 

The one thing that totally stood out to me, was the cord on them.  Instead of the rubber, plastic that sometimes break.  These have a cloth cord.  It makes it easier for storing and not worry about breaking it and ruining the cord or taping them with electrical tape.

They look good, they work good. I am happy! 

If you are looking for a good pair then you may want to check these out. 

Tonight my background noise is Shark Tank.  I am getting ready to drown Mr. Wonderful out with more Megan Trainor and my Inline headphones!


You can win your own pair of these!  The company has offered to send one person their own pair!

Tipsy Totes – Giveaway! Win a Betty Stone age Apron!




I don’t normally tote around a whole bottle of wine,  but when I do get a bit tipsy – I tote my bottle around in style!  Well ever since I got this cute little tote from Tipsy Tote! 

Tipsy Tote carries a wide variety of wine totes, shot glass holders and koozies.  They aren’t your ordinary totes, shot glass holders or koozies either. 

These totes will bring out the fashionista in all of us.  They sent me one to see up close and personal.  It was tall, satiny material.  The inside felt padded or cushioned.  Around the pretty purple was white feathers.   There was a cute carrying handle as well.  The tote was actually taller then an average bottle of wine.

I stuck a bottle in the tote and it went straight to the bottom of the tote.  So since it doesn’t stick out of the top it is more concealed.  This is a good thing.  The con to this is you can’t sip out of the tote.. But then again who would want to really sip through the feathers anyways?  Not me!  They are too pretty and white to get red wine on.


It really is cute and feminine and would work for anyone that wants to look sophisticated while toting their bottle of wine.  This would be perfect for parties and get together..  Let your feminine side out.


While I was sent the tote so I could see first hand the quality that was put in Tipsy Tote products.  They have offered to give one of Shopping Wives readers another product in a giveaway. 

While the giveaway is not for the tote I have.  It is for another product they carry.  This is a Apron.  As the tote was no ordinary tote, this apron is no ordinary apron.

This is the Betty Stone age tiger apron!  Yes, made in honor of one of mine if not your, favorite stone age characters! 

This apron

is Tiger faux fur and has satin ribbon tie closures.  Fun and sexy, this apron is perfect for a date-night-in!  Clothing Optional!

Satin ties for both neck and waist make the apron adjustable to suit you.  One size fits most.  Machine wash cold, gentle cycle. Tumble dry low and remove promptly.

So what do you have to do to win this apron?  Enter the RaffleCopter below!

Elimiscar Dermaroller giveaway


I have had the chance to try out another type of beauty product.  While this one doesn’t leave color on your face, it isn’t a cream or a mask.  It is important to have.  It is the Elimiscar and has been featured on some really trustworthy shows.  Shows such as, The Doctors & Rachel Ray.

When I first seen the name, I thought I didn’t need it.  I don’t have a scar.  But this isn’t just for scars.  This is good for several things that our skins go through.  Acne, sun exposure, aging and more.

Then another thing I was afraid of was, needles.  These are so tiny they actually feel good rolling across your face! Not only do that not hurt, but they are helping your skin to produce more collagen which is great for your face.

While I have seen these before, this one is tops.  It looks good, feels good and is made by people that know what they are doing.  It is a quality product that I would suggest be on your beauty table. 

Here is more from the company,  read this then enter for your chance to win your own Elimiscar sent to you from the company!
