Win a Fisher Price Kid's Digital Camera



My daughter loves to take pictures. She has been using my camera ever since she could sit up, but now I don't have to worry about her breaking mine because she has her own. Not her own "toy" camera...digital camera! Have you seen the award-winning and best-selling Kid Tough Digital Camera by Fisher Price?

This real digital camera is tough enough, and easy enough, for kids to use all by themselves! Two-eye viewing makes it easy for kids to look through the viewfinder. Sturdy dual hand grips help them steady their shot. Big buttons are easy for their little hands to press! And, controls are simple to follow! There’s even a built-in auto flash and and a color LCD preview screen that lets kids instantly see the pictures they have taken. It stores up to 500 pictures with 64 MB of internal memory. With a simple USB connection, kids can even download their pictures to your computer for editing, printing, or e-mailing!

Say Cheese!


My daughter takes her pink Kid's Tough Digital Camera everywhere. Here she is taking shots of the University of Hawaii baseball game! I am always amazed at her ability to line up shots perfectly. Now, when we upload them she has learned how to edit the pictures for light, clarity, and cropping!

You can buy one at Toys R Us, Amazon, and many more stores near you.

Fisher Price is also giving one away to one amazing Mom's Best Bets Reader!

Episencial's Natural Sunny Sunscreen Giveaway


Summer is coming soon! Time to think about your sunscreen. Do you have a quality natural brand? Check out Episencial:

I just discovered Episencial, the first company to develop all natural and sustainable skin care specifically for today’s actively healthy families. Their quality products are inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s favorite fruits from The World of Eric Carle. They sell products from body wash to sunscreen. Episencial products contain no synthetic chemicals and are made with all natural ingredients. I noticed a lot of organic ingredients on the labels too. I love how great they smell
with real fruit juice extracts. I first spied them in my health food store because of their attractive labeling. So far I have tried their sunscreen and just bought their lotion. They use
recycled and sustainable materials – phthalate and BpA free
Oh, and Episencial 's manufacturing is all done under
solar power .


Sunny Sunscreen:

Water resistant protection for face & body.
Protects sensitive skin with natural minerals zinc and titanium (no nano-particles).
What I liked about their sunscreen is their is no white chalky residue like most "natural" sunscreens. It's fortified with organic green tea extract to prevent sun-damage. Organic sesame, safflower and avocado oils are used to moisturize and nourish the skin. Beeswax and organic shea butter are included to increase water resistance and sun protection without the use of petroleum or chemicals.


Try it for yourself at stores such as Target,Whole Foods, many boutiques, and spas

Prima Princessa Presents Swan Lake DVD

Little girls just seem to love spinning and twirling in bright colored tutus. My little one loves her new ballet class on Saturday mornings. She also likes to watch professional ballerinas dance. "Oh, how graceful," she will exclaim.

This is why I am a big fan of Prima Princessa presents Swan Lake. Prima Princessa who is an animated fairy ballerina, guides children and magically transports them to see the Paris Opera Ballet perform select segments of Swan Lake. The children in the video then return home to learn simple ballet steps which are playfully shown mixed into colorful montages of toys, animals, children and young dancers from the School of American Ballet.
My daughter was captivated by the music and performance, she especially liked the parts where she could get up and start to dance and learn new ballet moves. This is an educational, enjoyable, and interactive video that I would highly recommend.
N Circle Entertainment now carries Prima Princessa on SALE for $5.99!!! You can watch a clip here as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njUjG2HQgyE.

Whoda Thought Mrs. Smith's Diaper Bag Giveaway ($99.00)


If you have children, then you know as a mom how important it is to be organized. This is especially true with babies. Moms on the go need diaper bags to hold all of their essentials. They just can never seem to be big enough, but then who wants to carry around a suitcase. I remember having issues with my diaper bags because everything just ended up on the bottom of the bag and all mixed up.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a bag where there is a place for everything and you can find them easily? A place where bottles don't spill, keys don't get lost, and snacks are readily available?
Well when you see Whoda Thought Mrs. Smith's Diaper Bags you will see an ingenious way to store all of your items in an organized and fashionable way.
They even have a drawer in their diaper bag that pulls out on the bottom and many side pockets to fit bottles and sippy cups in their own insulated holders. You can carry jars of baby food, pacifiers, snacks and toys, clothing, wipes, diapers, a changing pad, (which is included) and a place for your keys, cell phone, sunglasses, wallet, and water bottle. Can you believe all of that will be neatly stored in your oh so fashionable bag? Yes, it really will!
I think it is the best baby travel bag I have seen and it can turn into a backpack and you can go hands free! WhodaThought Mrs. Smith's Diaper Bag can be bought at many stores and at Amazon.com.
WhodaThought is giving one Mom's Best Bets reader their very own bag.

Olive Bell Bowtique Review

There is something about polka dots that I just love. It reminds me of birthday parties, giggles, carefree fashion, and just plain fun! This is a beautifully handmade dress from the Olive Bell Bowtique. Can you believe it's only $19.00?
Their items are all so lovely. Look at the sweet bow made of the same fabric to match! The owner is moving to Japan and her Etsy shop is temporarily closed. It should be open soon with lots of new items. She has sold almost 3,000 items in less than 2 years. I will post again to let you know when she is open for business! You can also go to this link and click to be notified when her shop reopens.

Whole Foods 365 Thursday Reviews- Join In The Fun!

Come Join In The Fun! Mom's Best Bets strives to share about healthier and better products for you and your family. Sometimes healthier, unfortunately means more expensive, but not always. I have learned how to be a savvy shopper while saving money, and still being able to buy healthy, organic, and Eco-friendly products. Now, I am going to share some of my secrets with you! One of them is shopping at Whole Foods Kahala....their 365 way!

Join us every Thursday for 365 Thursday Product Reviews! I am thrilled to have two Whole Foods in Hawaii. So, Hawaii bloggers and my other blogger friends let's discover how we can find great healthy recipes, discover great deals, and find out the scoop at our Whole Foods Market together!

What is the 365 Brand anyway? From the everyday to the gourmet, Whole Foods offers a wide selection of natural and organic products. Whole Foods Market products meet strict Quality Standards — that means no artificial ingredients or hydrogenated fats. They also never add high-fructose corn syrup and avoid genetically modified ingredients. The 365 Everyday Value® and 365 Organic Everyday Value® products are what your pantry and pocketbook have been waiting for. . From flour and condiments to dairy products and frozen veggies. There is a wide variety of organic choices at an incredible value.
Some Great Eco-friendly Thursday Finds!
365 Herbal mint shampoo with arnica flower and thyme extracts, balances oily hair, while peppermint essential oil leaves a clean, refreshing scent. I just love the smell of mint in the morning, it's very energising! They have also removed the sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), from their shampoos. They use surfactants that are biodegradable and "cleaner” for you and for the environment too.
The price is right at $3.99 and I also buy their conditioner on a regular basis too. If mint is not your favorite fragrance try their lavender, citrus, or unscented. They also carry glycerin soaps in different fragrances too for a little over a dollar. I just tried their unscented for my daughter. It is an all natural mild soap that won't leave your skin too dry.
Okay, your turn: What's your favorite Whole Food's find?

Le Creuset Oval Au Gratin CSN Stores Review


Oh Le Creuset-The king of cookware! As you know, I really like their collection. CSN stores (there are over 200 in all) sells a vast array of Le Creuset. This lovely Le Creuset Stoneware 1-Quart Oval Au Gratin in Cherry is the latest to my collection sent to me from CSN stores. This stoneware dish can cook more than just Au Gratin. I use mine for many mini dishes, such as my artichoke dip, gourmet macaroni and cheese, mini lasagna, and even desserts. It has a wide and shallow shape that exposes the maximum surface area of the food to the heat. It can be used on the stove top for frying or in the oven. What I like best is that this dish is so pretty that I don't have to re-plate it before serving. I just take my culinary creations out of the oven and viola, ready to serve. It's also freezer, microwave, oven and dishwasher safe.
I just love my little dish, especially the bright cherry color!

Beklina Organic Designer Scarf Giveaway


I love fashion and Beklina has some lovely dresses, accessories, paper, pillows, and sale items to meet your shopping needs!!
Their scarf selection is wonderful, especially the Lina Rennell Organic Scarves. I was sent a shell Ikat Cat scarf to review. It is so delicate, feminine, and super soft. There are so many uses for these scarves, from pulling your hair back and making a fashion statement, to using as a hankie. I keep my scarf in my purse when I'm going out to lunch or dinner. It's so much nicer to pull this piece of fashion out than a washcloth for your baby or children's needs.

Lina Rennell designs native modern, art driven textiles and objects. Rennell incorporates green fabrics and practices in all her work. Her collections are emotional, personal, strong and feminine. Rennell's wares are ethically made in Northern California.
Made by hand in California.

These Printed scarves are from the "Big Sur Meets Helsinki" collection and come in pacific Water Weave (my favorite), shell Ikat Cat (classic) and metallic gold Helsinki Tent (fancy).

They are 100% organic cotton voile. Aprox: 20" x 20"

Organic Strawberry Shortcake Recipe: The 365 Way!

Yummy Organic Strawberry Shortcake!

This is a more traditional recipe for strawberry shortcake. There are many other recipes, even healthier ones, using whole wheat, coconut creme for the whipped topping, agave for the sugar, and even raw shortcake.
After stopping by Whole Foods in Kahala, we picked up some essential ingredients. First, we made the shortcake using 365 organic flour (unbleached). They were such a wonderful buttery and crisp texture.

Next, we combined organic heavy whipping cream with 365 Organic powdered sugar and 365 vanilla. Make sure the bowl is cold before whipping.


For the strawberries, I cut out a lot of time by buying frozen berries like these 365 package of strawberries. Dice them up with some sugar or agave. I also bought the frozen cherries because they make a great alternative for individuals who are allergic to strawberries. Whatever is left over blend in your morning smoothie!

And...there you have it! This is a mouth watering treat!
It was amazing, especially with some high tea on the lanai! Good thing I have hula tonight to help me burn some of these calories!!
You can buy all of these ingredients at your Whole Foods Market.

Some Great Eco-friendly Thursday Finds!


I buy 365 Tissues. They cost $1.99 which was the same price I found at Walmart. They are made from 100% recycled paper, hypo-allergenic, whitened without chlorine bleach, fragrance free, and made in the USA! I also like the pretty leaf design!!

Something new that I found was their 100% recycled Paper Towels for $3.99. Made from 80% post-consumer content, together we are saving trees by using recycled paper rather than virgin wood pulp. Most paper towels are bleached with chlorine, including some brands made from recycled fiber. The 365 towels are whitened using a safer, environmentally preferred, non-toxic bleach. Or better yet, they make paper towels without whitening that are a tan color.
