Who's behind Squashie-Dipity?

About Sasha

I am the mother of a beautiful 2 year old daughter. My family also consists of my workaholic Fiancée Ed and our 4 silly rescue dogs Karma, Rocky, Babe, and Cisco. 

I am a general product reviewer that focuses mostly on the things I love. I always like to be the first person to try the newest and best products out there and when I find something interesting, I get super excited. Anytime I get excited about a product I make sure everyone knows and gets a chance to share in my excitement. The best part of what I do is having the option and chance to find the healthiest products out there for my little girl. Every mother wants what's best for her children and I am no exception. Some even say that I'm a little overprotective and obsessed with keeping my daughter safe, healthy, and happy.
Outside of my blog I enjoy baking, cooking, reading, Geo-caching, sleeping (because it's very hard to get any sleep these days), and shopping. I am a hardcore foodie if you can even consider being a foodie hardcore. I am an extreme germaphobe but not so much a neat freak. I have an obsession with my hair, the color purple, shoes, Capri's, movies, reality TV, mascara, nail polish, eye shadow, jewelry, football, coffee, energy drinks, and ice cream. I also collect magnets and cool drinking glasses from different places. If you were to ever run into me in public you would always see me carrying around something with caffeine in it and my cell phone. 
I love meeting new people and always enjoy a good conversation! Feel free to tell me a little about yourself in the comments, just be sure it's family friendly.

About Amanda

I am the mother of two beautiful daughters ages two and 3 months. My boyfriend Virgil is a disabled techie and spends most of his time teaching our oldest how to take apart and rebuild electronics (much to my dismay). 

I am generally new to the blogging world, but I want to focus on cosmetic product reviews as well as healthy living. Good cosmetics can be expensive and it’s just a shame to waste money on things that you don’t like. I should know I’ve gotten many products and absolutely hated them. Healthy living is especially important to me. As someone that is living with an Autoimmune disease, I have to be very careful with what I eat and use to prevent flair ups. My long term boyfriend is also battling thyroid cancer (which I’m convinced was caused by eating nothing but Slim Jims and pizza rolls for ten years). I love that I get to try many new and interesting things that are beneficial to all members of our family. 

In my limited free time I love to read, write, play video games, go for walks, swim, dance, and enjoy all different kinds of music. My daughters are my whole world and I love being able to teach them about my likes and activities to give them a well rounded view on life. One of my passions has always been activism. In fact, I was a social work major with a minor in women’s studies before I got sick. One day I hope to return to school and finish my degree.  

I’m not your typical mother. One day I might feel earthy and put on a peasant dress and run around barefoot. The next, I may feel like lacing up my corsets and stomping around in my platform boots. Some days, I feel like channeling my inner classy lady by prancing around in heels and a 1950’s party dress. I’m very eclectic.  

I always love feedback, good or bad so long as it’s constructive.

#HintingSeason with LG OLED at Best Buy

Thereviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality. 
The LG OLED TV delivers the ultimate display with Infinite Contrast ratio that measures and exhibits only the most radiant whites and profound blacks while offering a more lifelike viewing experience. This is something that has only been seen in our dreams until recently! OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. But, that's not all... By increasing the color range and clarity, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology provides the most illuminated, vivid colors. LG's 4 …

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using for the other two …
