Cotton Guitar Strap Review

This unique guitar strap is made of a very sturdy cotton material very similar to my husband's 5.11 Tactical belt.  Let's just say I would have to work very very hard to get this strap to rip or tear.  It would require a knife or scissors.

It is machine washable which is important for any user, but especially when a 12 year old frequently sits on the front stoop playing her guitar.  It also has a simple tie design so that you just tie laces to attach the strap to the guitar.  I didn't even have to read directions to figure it out which never happens for me.

Adding to the durability of this simple, inexpensive guitar strap is a piece of leather at each end.  This keeps the material from fraying and the weight of the guitar from pulling the cloth preventing wear and tear over time.  Also it is a one size fits most, and is adjustable for my daughter's needs!

This strap is compatible for most acoustic and electric guitars.  Best of all is the inexpensive price of this guitar strap.  Better yet, it comes with a 100% money back guarantee so if you don't like it, just return it.  It is a win win situation.  

You can find this super inexpensive, easy to use, and sturdy guitar strap here and on the website

WashGuard Lingerie Bag giveaway 4/1

I have always just washed our delicate items all in one wash load.  Sometimes if I just have one or two bras to wash, I toss them in with everything else, then hang them in the shower to dry.   However, it never fails that the straps get wrapped around my agitator AND most of the clothes in the washing machine.  It is amazing how many clothes can get caught in the middle of one strap.  It takes 10 minutes of diligence to get everything untangled and now the straps are all stretched out.

WashGuard Lingerie bag  is the solution to all my hassles!  

This is the only lingerie wash bag protected by a lifetime, no-hassle replacement guarantee.

  • *2015 DESIGN AND MATERIAL* - Ultra fine and silky soft non-abrasive mesh won't harm your delicate fabrics.

    *PREMIUM CONSTRUCTION* - Tightly stitched, these premium lingerie wash bags will protect your finest garments for years.

    *LASTING* - Our strong wash bags are made from stain, stretch and tear resistant material.

    *RISK FREE* - Your product is protected by our exclusive IX Better Home guarantee - You will love these premium lingerie wash bags or your money back. THIS BUSINESS SERVES YOU FIRST.
I will say that this bag is big compared to other delicate bags I have seen.  This one is big enough to hold a women's small shirt.  I know because I have a shirt that is very delicate with hand crocheted tassels on the bottom that I was holding off washing because I love it and didn't want it to tear up.  It got chocolate sauce on the front when my daughter wore it for picture day, so I tossed it in the bag into the washing machine.  

What's worse is that I forgot the darn shirt and bag were in the washing machine and tossed the whole kit and caboodle in the dryer with the rest of the clothes.  This bag not only protected the clothing from the wash, but the shirt came out in new condition from the dryer.  I just knew I had lost my precious shirt, and the bag saved it!

This bag keeps those pesky straps off the rest of the laundry, and I can wash all the bras in the same bag.  I like having this because it is so convenient and saves me a lot of time and hassle!

GoPureFractionated Coconut Carrier Oil & Massage Oil by Adovia Mineral Skin Care

I have been eating coconut oil for a year straight.  I bullet proof my coffee with it, but I take time off from that from time to time just from sheer laziness.  However, I have been cooking all of our food in coconut oil in lieu of other oil for the entire year.    Also, I have been hydrating with coconut oil that entire time.  A boo boo?  No problem, coconut oil to the rescue.  Diaper Rash?  I got you covered-Coconut Oil.  Dry skin, that's right, coconut oil for that, too!  

In all this time, I simply rubbed the congealed coconut oil right into the skin, and admittedly during the winter, this isn't always a quick process.  I mean, it is quick enough, because we all know that the oil starts melting on contact with the skin, but a bottle of already melted oil that doesn't congeal is easier for skin application.

I am going to be honest.  The only reason I even sought out a Fractionated Coconut oil in the first place was to be a carrier oil for my essential oils.  I love them.  Bring one, bring all, I will find a use for them!  However, some are hot oils and need a carrier oil or they will leave a rash.  

I was concerned though, because I want something that is as close to nature as possible.  Enter stage 1 Fractionated Coconut Carrier Oil - 100% PURE & NATURAL Coconut Oil - Premium Therapeutic Grade  offered by GoPure.

The name alone answers my needs:

*100% Pure


*Premium Therapeutic Grade

*Indefinite storage as long as out of the direct sunlight and high temperatures!

Here's what I think in real life:  I like that it is a base carrier oil with no scent.  It leaves a light coating without being overly greasy.  I love coconut oil, but sometimes I don't want to slather in it because of how oily it is and what I have to do next.  For example, my hands are currently dry from scrubbing my washer this morning, but if I put on an oil right now I can't use my laptop.  So, the fractionated oil is perfect for right now!

My husband hates tending to any wound on his body. Period.  Add in wait time for my oil to melt, and gangrene is going to set in before he lets me put something on an open sore.  This oil literally has been my answer.  I grab it, grab an essential oil such as lavender which is great for wounds, and have it on before he can put his hairy foot down.  He had an instance recently of a sore that had infection haloing up his stomach before he showed it to me.  As a MRSA survivor, I was scared when I saw it, but because the oil required no rubbing and was a super quick way to dab something on the wound, we got the infection in check until he could see the doctor who was closed for 3 days.  

I am not making health claims, I am just pointing out how convenient this oil is.  Even if you don't naturally do things, this oil is awesome on your hair, skin, as a carrier oil, etc.  

You can find the oil here  and learn more about the company via Facebook and the Website.  This bottle is under $15 for 16 ounces and trust it lasts a long time.  I have used it for everything since I got it and I haven't even used 1/8 of the bottle yet in a month's time.

#BodyMerry Age Defense Neck Cream

Thanks to all my yoyo dieting over the years, the skin on my neck looks like a cross between an orange rind and a road map.  Yeah, I just compared my skin to that.  I have no one but me to thank for this.  I would say that I am going to gain weight back to cure that, but that is a lie.  I have been a real foodie for a year straight and have lost 35 lbs which I have kept off.  

Mister Wild Crazy Life has an employee under him who practices the same lifestyle with his wife that I do, and he has been sharing his nuggets of wisdom with Mister who came home with the best idea since sliced bread:  our family should throw the sliced bread out the door and become a Whole food family.  

Now, my first inclination was to choke him because I have been saying the same thing for over a year.  However, I WANT him to join me on this lifestyle, so I merely agreed that he does usually have the best ideas for our family, why did I never think of this, and promptly drove him to Earth Fare same day.  Don't ya'll even bother fussing at me about women's lib and stuff.  I am driving this bus here, just letting him think he is! 

Anyways, since he started his journey 5 days ago, he has lost none, and I lost 4 more pounds, WHOOT WHOOT!  It's so much easier with someone encouraging your efforts!  Point is, losing in my case is good, but my skin hates me.  I mean it really hates me.  It is announcing to the world two things:  I am not aging well, and I am a reforming fat girl.  

But see, my face, it is still 39 with very few fine lines.  So I want my neck to start announcing, ¨hey, I'm young, beautiful, and you are jealous of me.¨  Yeah, my neck is a diva.  It's a bold faced bragster and most people hate it.  But they still want to be it!

Why?  Because of Body Merry Age Defense Neck Cream. This cream smooths out my neck, nourishes and hydrates it!  


*4% Vitamins, Antioxidants and AHA's

*5% Vitamin C

*Glycolic Acid and CoQ10

*Paraben, Sulphate and Phthalate free

I love this cream.  It is nice and thick, but rubs in and doesn't leave a greasy residue.  It is scent free-ish, and this is where I have a love hate relationship. I love that it is scent free so that I can put it on at bedtime and still smell my beloved lavender, cedarwood and veviter essential oils which put me right to sleep.  Check Check.  It kinda smells like a freshly cut plant.  You know the smell of the oozy stuff that comes out of the vine when you are gardening and cutting stuff?  Yeah, I don't really like that, if I am being honest.  

However, it's kind of hard for me to complain too loudly about the green smell because it tells me that the product is as natural as the company swears it is.  Because my nose has never failed me. I can smell a chemical a mile away, and I don't want to exchange a green smell for a chemical smell.  No way.  Not for me.  

I really like the price at right under $20.  A little goes a long way, but at this price, I can also be generous in using it twice a day.  Hey, beauty costs money, well keeping it does as we age!  What was that, you can't afford it?  You just said that with a straight face as you suck down a $5+ drink from Starbucks?  

PSSST!!!!  Forego that drink 4 times this month and you just paid for a cream that lasts more than a month!  You are welcome.  Your hips just thanked me too, so you are welcome again!  Okay, so I am sort of joking, but we all know I am being truthful here.  You know you want to keep your skin young and supple, so get yourself some of this Body Merry Age Defense Neck Cream!

InstaNatural Essential Oils #EssentialOils

Essential oils a new love in the Wild Crazy Life household.  I discovered them long after most people did about 4 months ago, and I have been spending all of our hard earned money expanding our stash.  Now, I use most in a therapeutic way, but I have been biting my nails waiting to try some in a diffuser.

The reason for that is I had to save up for a diffuser.  Well, I have the perfect oils for your diffuser needs, let me tell you.  InstaNatural Peppermint and Lavender essential oils are the bomb diggedy.  They are all that and a bag of chips and salsa, if you know what I mean.  Yes, I took it 1994, just for you my favorite readers!  I know how much you miss the nineties!

So let me tell you why I like these oils.  

*Steam Distilled-perfect for diffusing or even using in things like soap, candles and cleaning supplies

*100% pure, no fillers added, undiluted

*Comes in an Amber bottle with a glass dropper to protect the oil's integrity from the sunlight, and the glass dropper keeps plastics from seeping into my oils. 

*AFFORDABLE!  Under $20 for a 4 ounce bottle! 

*Glass Straw Dropper to give you one drop at a time-many droppers don't work like they should either spitting out all the fluid at once or none at all.  This one works WELL.  

*100% Satisfaction Guarantee. What's to lose if you get your money back?

You know you want to use oils to make your house smell good, too, right?  I use the Peppermint Essential Oil  in the mornings in my diffuser before my darlings get up so that the air is all fresh and peppy when they get up.  I know it helps me open my eyes while I am trying to boil the water for my french press.  

Oh, and did I tell you that the Lavender essential oil not only smells AMAZE, but it makes my darling bundle of energy that never stops TIRED.  You read that right, Demolition Mika gets tired when I am diffusing this before bedtime and asks to go to bed.  HE ASKS TO GO TO BED.  After ya'll defibrillate my heart you can call the newspaper on that one!  

I can't wait to try the Lemon scent in the future because of how bright and happy it smells.  These oils are so popular, the lemon wasn't even currently available when I ordered the peppermint and lavender. I am here with great news that it is available right now on Amazon.  I just checked for ya'll.  And, yes, I am working hard typing out reviews today so I can reward myself by ordering my lemon tomorrow.  That's right, I reward my good work!  

Now, if all fairness, I have to tell you that I do wish these were therapeutic grade oils that I could use on skin. However, if they were therapeutic grade, I wouldn't be able to buy them so cheaply for such a large quantity.  Also, I have to admit I like having bottles in my stash that I don't horde but can use daily without considering how often I can afford to replace.  At under $20 a bottle, I can buy that monthly if I want to! 
So ya'll run along and order yourself some to go in your diffuser, you know you want to!  Oh, and if you don't have a diffuser, put it in that mini crock pot you bought for the popourri back in the 90's or add it to a little water in that over priced tart melter you bought, but can't afford the tarts for!  See, I have your back.  I'm thinking outside the box just for you!

Crystal Wash Review and Giveaway #crystalwash 3/21

My first impression of the Crystal Wash was that these balls remind me of what my breasts looked like before I breast-fed four kids.  Mister even suggested I WEAR them for a week to decide if I ever want to surgically put the twins back where they belong.  After swatting him, I made it clear the balls are for washing not wearing!  Additionally, the Bio Ceramics make the balls sound like a maraca when you shake them.  What?  A product that doubles as bra inserts AND a musical instrument while getting my clothes clean?  Talk about super value!

Let me get serious for a minute-Yes, I am capable of being serious- and tell you that Crystal Wash is $59.99 for 1000 loads!!!!  I am paying $7 for 20 loads of laundry, so I would spend $300 to purchase enough liquid or gel packs to wash 1000 loads of laundry.  Did I tell you that Crystal Wash is chemical-free, Dye-free and fragrance-free?

I am bound by ethics to give an honest review, so I have to tell you upfront that I didn't really believe these wash balls would get the clothes clean.  I fully expected to come on here and tell you the things I like about the product as I also shared that I wasn't satisfied with the end result meaning I couldn't get the stink out of Mister's clothes.

I am the first to admit when I am wrong, and I was as wrong as it gets.   The Crystal Wash arrived on the brown truck around 4 pm, and I just happened to have a load of clothing I had washed the night before that I fell asleep and forgot to dry.  To make matters worse, because this was day 3 of the kids being out of school for the ice storm, I forgot it was in the washer until the package arrived.

This load of laundry had turned sour and smelled like it was starting to mold.  Any mom with more than one kid knows the exact sour stinky smell I am referring to.  I decided this was the perfect load  to try the new Crystal Wash balls on.  I mean if they get out sour towel smell, they will wash anything clean, right?  Keep in mind, I would normally have to wash a load this sour at least 3 times before it gets clean.

Directions say you can add fabric softener to the load to add scent if clean but scent free isn't for you.  However, I decided to just use the balls because I wanted a true result without any fragrance masking any leftover sour smell.

I was shocked when the clothing came out not only clean, but smelling fresh.  Being the skeptic that I am, I presumed this was a fluke.  I placed a dry board on the wall beside my washer, and I mark every load I wash so that I know when to replace these balls after 1000 loads.

Over the last week, I have washed 15 loads of laundry with these balls, and even Mister's nasty funky uniforms haven't stood a chance against Crystal Wash.      The clothing smells so clean that I haven't even added fabric softener, although I should point out that truly clean doesn't mean it smells like a flower field.  The clothing merely is completely unsoiled and smells freshly washed.  Even my homemade detergent that was fragrance free wasn't able to get out sweat odor!

These balls require almost zero upkeep.  It says to sit them out in the sunlight every 30 loads to reactivate the crystals, and of course, keeping up with how many loads you have washed is important so you don't toss the balls before you get all 1000 loads out of them!

I know you, my skeptical reader!  You want to know how these round balls that my husband will forever refer to as a body part I won't type out actually get the clothing clean.  While I am known for riding my broom for recreational purposes, I did NOT wave my wand to clean these clothes.  The secret is in the Bio Ceramics aka the ¨crystals¨ inside the balls that make them fun to shake.

As the Crystal Wash balls move around the washing machine, they literally change the chemistry and raises the pH balance of the water.  Similar to the way Jesus turned the water into wine, these balls turn water into peroxide disinfecting the clothes and killing off all bacteria and smells.   Also, the higher alkaline water allows all the dirt and grime to soak out of the clothing naturally.

Don't worry, this miracle peroxide doesn't bleach the clothing, so your blue jeans won't come out looking acid washed!  Some trends just should never be repeated, am I right?  I want to tell you that if you have a really good stain or spot on your clothes such as an entire bottle of Hershey's syrup squirted all over a 5 year old's shirt that ¨Nobody¨ and ¨Not Me¨ did (please tell me this doesn't happen just at my house), then you are going to want to pre-treat your clothing like you would when using any detergent.  I mean this is a miracle wash, but I am pretty sure Jesus himself would toss some of Demolition Mika's stained clothes!  Oh, and from personal experience, if it is mustard, just buy a new shirt/pant/carpet/gallon of paint for the wall-yes there's a story to be shared sometime.

Oh, and I need to share something you guys might find cool.  I personally don't own a smart phone.  Heck, I didn't own a minute cell phone until my daughter broke her growth plate at school last year, so I may be alone in my lack of phone usage.  However, Crystal Wash comes with a handy app for those that don't want to keep up with a dry board.  The Crystal Wash App is available on Android and iOS.

  The Crystal Wash App Features:
  • Real-time Wash pH Levels
  • Recharge Alerts
  • Wash Complete Alerts
  • Wash Cycle Tracking Stats – Graphs, Counters, Social Sharing
  • Savings Tracking
  • Crystal Wash – Wash Cycle Counter – Time to order new Crystal Wash
  • Stain guide
  • Label decoder

Come Party With Us: Dr. Suess Party Ideas to Celebrate Read Across America Day!

We love any excuse, or in this case exSEUSS to party at our house, and when the event includes an educational aspect this former teacher turned full-time mom is immediately on board!  I have been watching the Dr. Seuss parties the last few years, but we lived far out in the country with no young children for neighbors.  It was hard to get people to travel that far from town to come to a party at our house, so we were never able to have one.  When when I became a Suburban Housewife last year, I immediately started hosting things for the neighborhood kids!

Dr.  Seuss made such a mark in life, his works reaching both adults and  children alike, and I knew he was going to be a daily part of our lives when my now 12 year old memorized verbatim Red Fish Blue Fish at the age of 4. I want to quickly share two of his writings that I quote to my children on a frequent basis:


Because the children are headed back to school today after 2 weeks out for the weather, and I am sure they will be getting lots of makeup homework for a while, we hosted our party yesterday.   To get our party started, I went to my go to online place to get party supplies to look for Dr. Seuss Party Kits.  Hey, I'm not copping to an online shopping addiction, but I WILL say that my recliner would miss me if I left to go to a party supply store.  Besides, I don't have to change from my momiform (mom uniform) of yoga pants and a hoodie if I shop online!  

For a mere $7.99, I got enough plates, cups, utensils, napkins, tablecloth and streamers for 8 people. I can't beat that if I am shopping at a dollar store whose utensils break and plates leak!  Honestly, for that little price, I expected thin paper plates, utensils that would easily break, and a thin plastic cloth that would rip easily.  You guys know what I am talking about;  every one of you has purchased a plastic cloth before that ripped while you were opening, plates that food leaked through, and utensils you threw out and used fingers instead.   The you get what you pay for doesn't apply here.  You get WAY better than you pay for applied here.  These plates and cups survived Demolition Mika, and nothing survives him.  For a calm child who likes to sit and read, play his tablet or play calmly with Lego's, that child can break something the minute he touches it-thus the moniker Demolition!  

This left plenty of money to prepare all the yummy Dr. Seuss inspired food, and add two new books to our already extensive Dr. Seuss book collection.  Anytime Costumes and Wholesale Costume Club offer a great selection of all costumes such as This Buzz Lightyear Costume as well as The Cat in the Hat and Thing 1 and Thing 2.  

Games such as Hop on Hopscotch, Pin the Hat on the Cat, and Guess How many Red Fish Blue Fish in the jar are easy fun Seuss inspired games.  We have had ice for 2 weeks straight, and yesterday was no different with freezing rain.  Therefore, we went with quieter indoor activities such as letting the kids take turn reading portions of the books, and playing our Dr. Seuss Memory Game.  The main event of the party was definitely the food!

We partied like it's 1999-Prince would be proud!!

Cat in the Hat skewers made for a great centerpiece AND they were delicious!  Win win!

Poodles on Noodles add a burst of color and something to hold down all the sugar we were indulging in!

No Dr.  Seuss Party is complete with out Green Eggs and Ham! 

How about some Hop on Pop-corn?  My 5 year old was so proud to be able to read this whole book by himself, no help, before Holiday Break in November! 

One Fish, Two Fish-Goldfish surrounded by Truffula Trees!

Red Fish Blue Fish!  Wiggly, Jiggly Fun!

They were so high on sugar, my normally sedate 5 year old boy (yes, he is calm compared to most boys including my oldest was at this age) was bouncing on my new couch, sigh.

Did someone say Thing 1 or Thing 2?  We have you covered!  Just an FYI if you are planning a party, add the cotton candy RIGHT before serving because it will melt into a hard blob within a half hour.  Let's just say that someone was scraping off hard cotton candy, re-icing, and re applying hair to Thing 1 and Thing 2 right before the party!!  Oh the Lessons we will Learn!

Mr. Moo's YooHoo is the perfect drink to wash down all that sugary goodness!

Not in the mood for chocolate?  How about drinking Pink Yink Ink Drink instead?

Thing 1 and Thing 2 up close and personal!

Dr. Seuss has changed our lives in so many ways, for the good starting by writing books so interesting they appeal to all four of my children-two of which have to be forced encouraged to read.  Watching my last baby reading Dr. Seuss out loud to me makes me sad that we won't be able to enjoy these Seuss moments much longer.  Then I remember:  there will be Grandchildren.  I am SO saving these books to enjoy with them!
