Get Headache Relief Naturally with Warmables Heat Pad Eye Masks

Unfortunately for me, I get regular headaches and migraines.  I try to avoid taking medication when possible and implement things like essential oils, heat, ice and rest – but sometimes, taking time to rest or laydown with a heating pad just isn’t feasible because I am a busy mom of two who has things to do and places to go!  I recently received a Warmables heat pad eye mask in exchange for my honest opinion.

What did I think of the Warmable heat pad eye mask?

I have to say – sometimes the simplest ideas are the BEST!  The awesome people at Warmables have taken your typical heat bag and made it awesome by adding a strap to it.  This heat pad is filled with cherry pits (vs rice or beans like some) and can be heated in the microwave in increments or thrown into the freezer for a nice cooling effect.  Then you simply use the stretch band to put it on your head and wear over your eyes for relief or my favorite way – turn it around and use it at the base of your skull.

Warmables heat pad eye mask

Most of my headaches at the back of my head so this heat pad eye mask becomes a heat pad head helper and I love that!  The added “hug” that the strap provides gives some much needed counterpressure and relief to my aching head.  With this, I am able to keep doing things around the house while my headache starts to dissipate.  If I am having a particularly awful migraine, I can use it while laying down in bed and not worry about it slipping off my head!

The Verdict

If you suffer from headaches or migraines – the Warmables heat pad eye mask is something you will want to buy!  This would also make a lovely gift in a spa basket for the person on your list who loves to relax.  I think I’ll be adding this to my “new mom” gift basket too – as a way to help new mamas relax during those brief moments of baby sleeping!  Learn more by following Warmables on Facebook and Pinterest!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Ready-Made Guacamole from Cabo Fresh Will Save Parties & Boring Lunches

One thing I am incredibly fortunate about (among other things!) with my children is that they are such good eaters!  Miss Goose was chowing on green peppers as a baby in those mashie things and ever since, has had a taste for the delicious!  That carries on now, as she is always willing to try and eat new and bold things.  One of her favorite things to eat, that she will order at any restaurant she can is, guacamole!  She is forever asking me to make it at home, but it can be time consuming, expensive (depending on the time of year) and while I make pretty good guacamole, it’s never consistent from batch-to-batch.  So when we received some ready-made guacamole from Cabo Fresh for my opinion, I knew we were on to something!

Wooden Dollhouse Set from School Specialty Makes e-free time FUN

When we bought our girls tablets, we were sure to install the app that limits their time playing games and watching shows to 30 minutes per day.  To balance their day, we want them to play with something completely non-electronic and ideally, non-plastic, battery operated toys.  They love to play dolls, so this colonial style wooden dollhouse from School Specialty was right up their alley!


What did we think of the Wooden Dollhouse from School Specialty?

My girls are in LOVE with this wooden dollhouse!  As soon as I pulled it out of the box, there was a deafening level of squeals and screams and ready to play announcements.  The house itself is an open concept of sorts meaning that you have the front of the house open for play so that kids can imagine and reimagine what each room is.  The house is actually built to scale at a 1:1 (inch to foot) ratio that adds a level of realism to their play.  We also received wooden dollhouse furniture and an assortment of families. 

School Specialty Doll House

The wooden dollhouse furniture is also appropriately sized and scaled to this house – which is wonderful!  We have had other dollhouses where the furniture was either comically large or small compared to the rest of the building.  The girls have spent hours arranging and rearranging the house and the furniture layout as they change the story for the families each time. 

School Specialty Doll House

I like that the figurine families are available in a variety of skin tones and racial ethnicities, so that children can have exposure and create that normalcy that we strive for, along those same lines, children can also expect to play with a doll that “looks like them” if they so choose!

School Specialty Doll House

Mostly though, our girls host giant parties with all of the families in attendance.  I love the imagination play that is at work with this dollhouse! 

Since it is unfinished, it is blank canvas for us and the girls have asked if we could do some interior decorating to the home.  Since Miss Goose is learning to sew, this will be a great opportunity for her to make things that are smaller and more manageable.  Her first order of business is curtains for the windows and some throw rugs.  Miss LadyBug had requested pillows too – so we’ll see. 

School Specialty Doll House

The Verdict

The wooden dollhouse from School Specialty is a wonderful buy that is well-made and kids will love! In addition to that, parents can love it for the time off of electronics where children will grow their imaginations, practice real life scenarios and also dream up creative designs. From an adult’s view point, I also love that this dollhouse has GREENGUARD Gold certification – so you can feel wonderful about how this product was made!  In addition to all that good news, this wooden dollhouse also carries a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects, so you know you can feel confident that you have a quality product that can be passed to generations for years to come!
