Enchantails Books Review

Enchantails celebrates the love of Mermaids and all things under the sea! When you slip into an EXCLUSIVE ENCHANTAILS SLUMBER BAG, playtime and sleepovers become a magical realm where destiny awaits! 

Designed to ignite imagination, our slumber bags create hours of fun, role play, and sweet dreams, making you feel like a Royal Mermaid of Oceana. Each bag features a unique tail with rich colors, lush fabrics and glow-in-the-dark thread specific to its Royal Mermaid and realm. 

All slumber bags come with a coordinating Easy Carry Tote, beautiful Decorator Pillow, Bonus Storybook, and Wall Decals that feature the matching Royal Mermaid and her Sea Buddy.

We received the three Enchantails books. posters and stickers at no cost in exchange for an honest review.


*Reviewed by co-blogger Jenni and her daughter Alexandria*

The love of mermaids cannot be denied in my home. My 5 year old will spend hours in the bathtub with her mermaids, Dolphins, and whales. Now with the Enchantails books we can submerse ourselves even more into the magical world of mermaids. The series has posters and stickers that came with our order and you can even purchase their beautiful mermaid tail blankets for your little girl to be a mermaid during cuddle time. 

Every night during bed time we read out of the Enchantails series. My daughter and I are entranced by the series that we have to force ourselves to wait for the next chapter. It creates a wonderful bonding experience for us to cuddle in bed together with a nice book. Since my daughter is learning to read we also use this opportunity to point out sight words. I feel it will be several years before my daughter will be comfortable reading this on her own but we will save it for her so that she may enjoy it for solo reading time when she is older. 

Currently, in the Enchantails series we are reading the book about Kelani's Secret Island. Kelani is faced with humans or air breathers as she calls them discovering her secret island and lagoon. She is brave and a great role model for any young girl.

We can't wait to dive right into the other 2 books we have.

Fashion Must-Haves Trending for Fall

As the warmth of summer ends and the cool breezes of fall begin, you need to get prepared with a great fall wardrobe. You'll want to pack up those shorts and crop-tops and fill your closet with stylish, warm clothing items. Take a look at some new fall trends that are making a big splash. 


For most women, pants are a wardrobe staple that offer wardrobe versatility. Pants provide casual comfort around the house, chic style at work, and elegant appeal for an evening on the town. From basic denim jeans to velvet dress pants, great pants offer a lot of wardrobe versatility. Pants will never go out of style, but styles may change every year. This fall, you'll see skinny pants and flared pants, but they will all show a lot of ankle. The newest pant styles are narrow with stirrups and worn with both heels and flats, so get ready to show off those great Manolos hiding in your closet. 


Mid-length skirts are back in the spotlight this fall. Whether you're extra curvy or stylishly thin, there's a mid-length skirt style that will flatter your figure. For women who prefer a casual, comfortable look, flouncy skirts are trending. You'll see them in a variety of beautiful printed and solid fabrics and colors from white to black. If you prefer a casual, yet chic look, add a couple of pencil skirts to your wardrobe. They're perfect for the office, as well as a romantic late-night dinner date.


Gorgeous pumps, flats and boots made a big impact on fall fashion runways. High-heel pumps that flatter the legs and emphasize feminine style are still a favorite with fashion designers, but stacked and block heels also made a big showing. For casual, comfortable style, flats and ankle boots made a big splash. Look for shoe styles in trending fall colors like chocolate brown and mustard. You'll see soft leathers, sultry suedes and fabulous prints in these rich fall colors. 


Handbags – Totes, satchels and saddle bags are the latest handbag trend. You'll see all three styles in beautiful jewel tones like burgundy, plum, emerald and mustard. Handbag details include laser cut-outs and lots of fun fringe.

Jewelry – Jewelry shapes for fall are simple. You'll see modern shapes that make a bold fashion statement, as well as delicate chains that emphasize simplicity. Look for jewelry adorned with glass beads and natural stones in gold and silver. For more jewelry trends, click to view the products.

Buffalo Horn Caviar Spoon by California Caviar Company Review

California Caviar Company’s origins lie in a distinct love for the arts and caviar. Caviar, the ultimate delicacy, had no equal in the world of spoons. Caviar Spoons across the market were cheaply built and lacked an attention to detail. Et Voila! The California Caviar Company Buffalo Horn Caviar Spoon was designed, in part, to fill that void. To avoid imparting an unsavory metallic taste, use this natural buffalo-horn spoon when scooping out small portions of caviar. A delightful gift or a special treat for your own use, the Non-reactive buffalo horn materials won’t mar the flavor of caviar.


This spoon is handcrafted, and every one created is different and unique. This is not a mass produced item. The gift box the spoon comes in is beautiful, and the spoon itself is also pretty to look at. The handle has a nice sterling silver inlay. I'm honestly not sure I will use this spoon, I may just display it. If I do decide to use it, there are a lot of different ways I can do that. I do not eat caviar though. I could see myself using this for my nice loose leaf teas, sugar, and maybe even desserts or soups.

*I received this spoon at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion*

My boys are Lego fanatics and love getting new Lego products. Getting them the items they love can run into some real money though. I love this Brick Loot box because they can get a small variety of new Lego compatible items every month, and I don't have to break the bank to put smiles on their faces. This months box came with a mini figure, a 35 piece set to make a little arcade game, a pac man set, and a head case piggy bank.

My youngest son is very interested in space and the planets, so I knew he would like this book a lot. This is a nice heavy, hard bound book with big glossy pages. The pictures are big, bright, and detailed. There is a lot of information, but it's broken down into short explanations that he can really understand and wrap his brain around. This is his favorite book right now, and loves sharing all the information he has learned so far!
