Downton Abbey Tea

We may have to wait until January to watch new episodes of Downton Abbey but we can watch old ones or dream of having tea with our favorite characters with a new tea from Republic of Tea.  The Downton Abbey English Rose Tea is a vibrant, ruby-red infusion of rose, raspberry and hibiscus with fruity, floral notes and a touch of sweetness.  It is caffeine-free so you can enjoy it anytime of the day.

Red Rose Tea


While searching for some gifts for my tea loving friends today I came across this great product from Red Rose Tea.  It is a Sweet Mint tea for the Kuerig,  It is a blend of spearmint, peppermint and black tea.  It sounds perfect for the holiday season and the cold winter days ahead,

I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of drinking tea not brewed in a pot put when I am in a hurry there are many teas I now enjoy made in the Kuerig.  This one sounds like one I may need to try,.

Paper Mate Ink Joy Pens

Have you seen the new Ink Joy pens from Paper Mate?  You might even discover they are your new favorite pen. They are so great you will have to keep them under lock and key because they are sure to be stolen by your coworkers or even (as in my case) your family.  My 9 year old daughter informed me that she liked the purple so much that she took it too school.  At least she admitted to taking it. 

The "World’s Most Stolen Pen" has a revolutionary new ink system which features the smoothness of a gel pen with the fast-dry of a ball point pen.

Be sure to head over over to Paper Mate's Facebook page to enter their sweepstakes.  You could win $2500 or even your own Ink Joy pen.  You can also get $1.50 coupon to buy your own Ink Joy pens.  Be warned though they are so good they just might be stolen.

I  received the Ink Joy pens to try as well as a safe to keep them in.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions are my own.

Time for Tea Tuesday~Just Ducky


I saw this Tea infuser a few weeks ago and knew right away we had to get it for my daughter.  She is turning nine next month and my mom gave her this as an early birthday present.  Needless to say she loves it and has made at least one cup of tea in it a day since she got it. We found this one at Cracker Barrel but the Just Ducky Floating Tea Infuser is also available from Amazon.


I love how it floats and the little base that looks like water to set it in when you are finished.  Why not have a little fun making your next cup of tea!

Tylenol Blog Tour

As a parent it is always concerning when my children are sick.  I want to do what is best for them and that includes the giving them the proper medicine. That often means giving my kids TYLENOL.  I know that the makers of TYLENOL  have had their problems lately, and you may not find their products on the store shelves, but I believe that they are back on the right track  and have come out with improved products.
By the time Cold and  Flu season hits you will see a new and improved TYLENOL hit the store shelves.  You can go here to check out the new product enhancements that are coming to Infant and Children's TYLENOL.  Dosing amounts will also change so you will want to be sure to always read the label for dosing. Infants’ TYLENOL will include a new, enhanced bottle with a protective opening and push-in syringe which will
  •  Provide even better dosing accuracy and ease of administration to infants
  •  Allow for better control when dispensing the medication and reduce spillage
  •   Further reduce the risk of children being able to get to the medicine in the bottle

They will also be introducing enhanced bottles with the protective opening on Children’s TYLENOL products. It will make it more difficult for children to get into the medicine bottle.


Infants’ TYLENOL will have the same concentration of the active ingredient, acetaminophen, as Children’s TYLENOL which will standardize dosing across our products and age groups.  The makers of TYLENOL have been working closely with other manufacturers of pediatric acetaminophen products to encourage an industry wide transition to one concentration across infants’ and children’s acetaminophen products.

Be looking for the changes on your store shelves soon.  Until then you can get a $1 off  coupon here for TYLENOL products.

TYLENOL has some very helpful tips  for giving medicines to infants and children:

Simply remember to NURSE
  • Never give adult medicines to children.
  • Use the measuring device (syringe, dropper, dosage cup) that comes with the medicine every time you use it. Don’t use kitchen spoons (teaspoons or tablespoons).
  • Read and follow instructions on the label. Never give more than the recommended dose and do not give the medication more frequently than recommended.
  • Store all medicines out of the reach of children. Immediately following use, always restore the child resistant cap and put the medicine back into a high and out of sight location.
  • Every child grows. Know the infant’s or child’s weight and/or age to help determine the appropriate dosage.
