At Dantelino, our love and passion for babies and toddlers drives what we do. Dantelino is founded by myself, Anca, and my beautiful, smart baby boy Danteo. The company is named after my son’s nickname, Dantelino; we offer premium mom and baby products that enhance the pleasure of raising children from bump to baby and beyond. Our mission is to play a small, but unforgettable role in your and your baby’s journey through this new, exciting chapter of your lives.

I received this Dantelino Mambo Nursing Cover at no cost in exchange for an honest review.


I got this item for a friend who is having a baby next month and planning on breast feeding. The quality of this cover is amazing. The fabric is soft and comfortable, it has a little pocket to keep a washcloth handy, and the strap is adjustable so you get the perfect fit. The fabric is very breathable so you don't feel like you are "hiding" or "smothering baby when feeding and the neck is wide so you can see baby the whole time easily. The design is beautiful and is perfect for a boy or girl. The cover folds up nicely and will fit in a small purse or diaper bag with ease. This cover can aslo double as a lightweight stroller and car seat cover. This is really the must have perfect baby shower gift!

Mission Belt Review

Buy a belt feed a family. It's that simple. Now you can look good and feel good. The Mission Belt is an evolution in belt design, style and function. The belt is sleek and clean, and provides a perfect fit for everyone. With no holes to stretch or wear over time, your genuine leather belt always looks great. Not only is it the best belt ever manufactured, it's comfortably priced as well. The tip of the belt inserts into the ratchet belt buckle, where a locking mechanism holds the belt in place from the back. To remove the belt, just press the small metal lever on the bottom of the buckle, and the belt slides out of the buckle. You're no longer restricted to 1 inch size adjustments, but can get a perfect custom-fit every time. Not only will you look good, you'll feel good too, because a DOLLAR from every Mission Belt sold goes to help hungry families worldwide become self-sufficient. It's a hand up and not a handout. 

I received a Mission Belt at no cost in exchange for an honest review. My husband selected the Nylon Commando design.


My Review

I picked this belt for my husband, and it seems I made a good choice. He loves this belt. The Mission Belt has no holes that stretch and tear so he can easily adjust the belt for weight loss or weight gain. He likes the Camo design as it goes with most of what he wears. He is a jeans and t shirts kind of guy so there's no worry about clashing. The belt is sleek and it isn't bulky like some belts so he can wear this belt with jeans or slacks and it stays in place and keeps his pants waist where he wants it.

My husband fishes, hikes, rides bikes, and pretty much anything that involves being outdoors. This belt has held up wonderfully through all his activity. My husband no longer wants to use any of his old belts and already has several more designs of the Mission Belt picked out. This is a great product and we definitely recommend this belt!

Ztrength Premium Jump Rope Review

Jump Rope Training strengthens your cardiovascular system, conditions your lungs and builds both the upper and lower body! But if you truly want to reap all of the benefits of jump roping, you need to have the right exercise equipment. That's why you can't afford to be without the revolutionary Ztrength Premium Adult Jump Rope!

The Ztrength Premium Adult Jump Rope is the best jump rope for CrossFit, fitness or just jump ropes simply for fun! 

Only our jump ropes for exercise have:

- A TRULY DURABLE DESIGN. Other jump ropes for exercise are actually poorly made exercise equipment and just can't stand up to intense workouts like CrossFit jump rope WODs or Extreme Jump Roping. Ztrength was made with serious athletes in mind to outlast the competition.

- COMFORT HANDLES. During a jump rope workout, ordinary home exercise equipment jump ropes can strain the hands and shoulders. This ends up making it impossible to keep up jumping rope for long. Ztrength has ergonomic handles that don't put stress on the hands, arms or shoulders, so your jump rope CrossFit WOD or general workout can last for as long as possible.

- ADJUSTABLE LENGTH TECHNOLOGY. Ztrength is a long jump rope at 10 feet in length, but you can shorten it to the perfect size for any adult or teen! The slim 4mm diameter also helps to prevent tripping for enhanced safety.

- SMOOTH SWIVEL HANDLES. Handles often stick on ordinary jump ropes for exercise, reducing speed and diminishing the benefits of a jump rope workout. Ztrength handles swivel in both directions for smooth movement every time and can turn 5 to 7 times per second to help you maintain fast speeds.

We received a Ztrength Premium Jump Rope at no cost in exchange for an honest review.


If you are looking for a great way to stay active and get a great cardio workout- get this jump rope! With the Ztrength Jump Rope you are going to get a great workout for your arms, legs, lungs and heart! The Ztrength Jump Rope is great medium weight rope for adults. It is the ideal weight rope for great control. It is ideal for building endurance in your workout, and jumping rope is a lot of fun for grown ups too!

I loved that I could save a lot of time and money by using this jump rope. I don't have to spend a fortune at the gym to get a good cardio workout in- and I can grab my rope and head outside with the kids and get a good exercise in that seems like a play session- especially when the kids are jumping rope too! The handles make the jump rope really user friendly. They are comfortable to hold on to and they really help to control the rope so much better than other jump ropes I have used. I also like that the rope is adjustable and has a generous length of 10 feet so that my husband and I can both use the same rope for a great cardio workout anytime we feel like jumping to it.

There is a reason this is the number one rated jump rope! Because it is a great rope at a great price!

Descendants DVD Review

In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic “Beauty and the Beast”) is poised to take the throne.  His first proclamation:  offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella de Vil, Maleficent the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters.  These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes, including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan.  However, the evil teens face a dilemma.  Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?

Our Review

This new movie from Disney is a cool new hip take on all of our favorite fairy tale characters and what happened to them after their stories ended. The Descendants are the children of our favorite villains. The villains have been segregated for years, but now get the chance to come to the kingdom and live and go to school with the children of the heroes. They have a lot of choices to make, and stumble a bit along the way. The new take on the old stories and the classic good vs evil make for a great family film that everyone can enjoy.

The Body Candle Review

Brooklyn born. Los Angeles based. Veteran entertainment publicist. Artisan. Almost two decades in the music industry has afforded me the remarkable opportunity of seeing the world. Monte Carlo, Lisbon, Port Au Prince, London, and Tokyo recall treasured moments. Vacations with my husband to Tuscany, Paris, Montego Bay, Barcelona, Cape Town and Phuket were awe-inspiring. My world is a global landscape. And like a painter who paints his past, I create luxury products to recall my most precious memories. My luxurious candle fragrances highlight my very personal journey. A remarkable journey that led me to Ethiopia... to my daughter Sitota. 

What first began in my kitchen, blossomed into existence from an idea my six year old son had one day. “Mama,” he said as I was making up a batch of my hand poured candles. “We should have a manufacturing plant and have stores in every country that sell our candles.” From his lips to God's ears, The Sitota Collection was born.

My Review

I received a small body candle at no cost in exchange for an honest review. This candle is amazing because it is so much more than just a candle. It is made with 100% natural coconut wax, Shea butter, soy, coconut oil, jojoba essential oil, vitamin E and aloe vera. As it burns you can use the wax for a massage! 

I loved that this candle smelled awesome while burning, and it smelled awesome when used as massage oil. It also left my skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and moisturized. The Body Candle from the Sitota Collection was a true indulgence for the mind, body and spirit!

The combination of coconut wax, shea butter, soy, coconut oil, jojoba essential oil, vitamin E and aloe vera is great for dry skin, dry spots and deep moisturization, and can really help you achieve healthier skin!

The candle burned for an impressive amount of time- at least 35 hours. Considering that it multi tasks as a wonderfully decadent massage oil I think this is something you really should try! It would make a great anniversary or sweetest day gift.

IMUSA Lemon Squeezer Review

Innovative, authentic & affordable, IMUSA‘s line of products help bring the Abuelas’ (grandmas’) recipes to life, while also capturing the adventurist spirit of culinary globetrotters.Today, the IMUSA brand has moved beyond borders to become the leading brand of Hispanic housewares and a culinary brand ambassador of other international cuisines including the new Pan-Asian line of products.

Our Review

I received the Imusa lemon squeezer in red at no cost in exchange for an honest review

 This is a handy tool that makes extracting citrus juice a breeze. The hand-held press has an ergonomic design for comfort, and a bright red exterior finish to add just the right amount of color to your kitchen. The lemon squeezer juices lemon or limes quickly, with no seeds and no mess.

I thought this was a really great kitchen tool to have on hand! Living in Florida we can get some amazing fresh citrus fruit usually. Having a lemon squeezer in my kitchen makes it so easy to have fresh squeezed lemonade, lemon in our water and adding a splash of lemon or lime as a recipe calls for it is very convenient. My boys like squeezing the lemons for me too, they think this is a really cool product! I love that it is not made of plastic, but is made of a durable aluminum so it is made to last! 

If you like to use lemons or limes in your food or drinks, this is a product I would recommend. It is available from Target.

The Doozers DVD Review and Giveaway

Created by the Jim Henson Company, Doozers focuses on a team of best friends who live in Doozer Creek, a fantastical, modern and eco-friendly community. Dubbed the “Pod Squad,” these four pals embark on fabulous adventures that encourage preschoolers to play, design and think outside the box. Doozers will be available for purchase in August at Target and all other retail outlets in September.

Meet the Doozers

Welcome to Doozer Creek, where the Doozers live. The Pod Squad - Spike, Molly Bolt, Flex and Daisy Wheel - bounce from one amazing adventure to the next. They love exciting projects and have a blast playing together. The Pod Squad loves to design, create and innovate. These Doozers are “doers” and put their ideas into action. From designing their own Doozer Derby racing car, flying in a jet-pack, flying with a kaleidoscope of butterflies, or building a giant life-sized gingerbread house, the Doozer gang are always ready for the next adventure!

I used to watch Fraggle Rock when I was younger, and as soon as my boys were interested in cartoons I bought the entire series on DVD for them. My favorite characters in Fraggle Rock were always the Doozers. They were these tiny little, adorable, hard working doers who kept Fraggle Rock going. My boys are a little bit older now, 10 and 7, but their love of all things Fraggle is still strong. They were excited to see these DVD's about just the Doozers. We also have a younger neighbor girl who they adore, and they could not wait to show her the Doozers. These DVD's are great. The lessons are there for the preschoolers, the characters are cute and their adventures are fun.

16 Things to Pack for Your Trip to Sorrento

16 Things to Pack for Your Trip to Sorrento

Located in southeast Italy facing the Bay of Naples, Sorrento is a charming town perched on the side of the cliffs. It offers spectacular views of the Piazza Tasso and of Mount Vesuvius across the bay. It’s one of the top places to vacation in Italy, and there is a wide variety of accommodation from luxury hotels such as the Hotel Prestige as well as affordable hotel options in Sorrento. If you are making a trip to Sorrento, you may appreciate a list of 16 things you don’t want to forget.

1. For any trip abroad, make sure you have copies of all of your travel documents. You can carry photos of them on your phone or keep them in your email account that you can access online.

2. Make sure you have all the emergency information you need in your phone or purse. If you have hard copies, put them in different places. 

3. Be sure to take any prescription medications you need as well as the prescription from your doctor. You should also take some non-prescription pain killers. Keep these medications in your carryon and not your checked luggage. 

4. Wear a money belt under your clothing where you put your money, credit cards, passport and anything else you want to protect that you won’t be using that day.

5. Bring a refillable water bottle. There is good drinking water at public fountains where you can refill your bottle, and you’ll save a lot on buying water as well as reduce your travel carbon footprint.

6. Pack a few different sizes of Zip-Lock plastic bags. They are useful for keeping a wet swimming suit as well as laundry that didn’t completely dry. 

7. Bring a travel clothesline. When you wash your underwear or socks, you’ll be glad you don’t have to hand them on lampshades or the backs of chairs. 

8. Bring a sweater or light jacket for cool evenings and for entering some churches. Many have restrictions on bare shoulders and short skirts. A scarf or shawl will also work.

9. Hand sanitizer is very convenient when you want to eat but have no access to water. It’s also a good idea to use it after traveling on public transportation. 

10. Take some books on an electronic device. It’s a light and convenient way to always have something to read.

11. Comfortable shoes, because it’s much better to see the sights on foot, but you don’t want your feet to get tired. Remember there are a lot of steep streets to climb in Sorrento. 

12. An empty backpack will come in handy at the end of your trip when you have souvenirs and gifts that don’t fit into your luggage. 

13. A plug adapter will be required for a laptop, cell phone or charger for your camera. The adapter will allow you to use your regular plug in Italy’s outlets. 

14. Bring your own mobile phone and get a local sim card for Italy. 

15. Hat, sunglasses and sunblock.

16. If you’re traveling in the off season, bring a small umbrella. 

Sorrento is a city for walking. You’ll enjoy the many narrow streets in the historical center as well as the walks near the two main marinas. The main thing to remember is to pack as little as possible. This makes traveling light.
