Freehold, N.J., October 31, 2018 – This weekend, iPlay America is marking the grand opening of their newly renovated multi-level, 6,500-square-foot laser tag arena. The dynamic, responsive arena is the latest update to the indoor amusement park and entertainment venue in Freehold, N.J.

Newly installed kiosks allow players to easily input their information to create a player profile, including a player name and photo. The kiosks can also send text messages when games are about to begin and deliver score cards via email and more. Each laser tag game in the new arena can host up to 35 players at a time.
“We’re always looking to bring guests exciting upgrades and new features to our most popular attractions,” said Jessica Schwartz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for iPlay America. “The new technology and additions to our arena are sure to offer our laser tag fans a fresh and entertaining experience. We can’t wait to see the exhilarating games that ensue!”

Enjoy the health and mindfulness benefits of aromatherapy with Utama Spice products!
I received the above pictured products to review from Utama Spice all natural aromatherapy and share my experience with you all. I am also giving away a diffuser, so stay tuned until the end to enter! Giveaway includes ONE Sonoma Yi Luxury Diffuser LED Lamp;
Elegant, clean design a perfect complement for the home, studio, spa, or salon
Natural wood base, pure-white ceramic lid
Retail value $39.99
I have dabbled with different essential oils and am a huge fan of tea tree oil to heal almost anything. So when I was asked to check these out, of course I agreed although I had never heard of Utama Spice company before.
They have so many products, it’s amazing! From organic bug sprays, to lotions, oils, shampoos, and chapsticks. Do yourself a favor and check out their store. They also do giveaways each month, and they’re pretty awesome packages you can win directly from their website.
The essential oils they sent I actually have never used. They are;
Cajeput (Melaleuca Cajuputi) – Use for cuts and scrapes, therapeutic massage, decongestant.
A slightly medicinal smelling oil that carries a fruity camphor aroma with hyacinth and herbaceous undertones. Properties include antimicrobial, astringent, analgesic, stimulant, and anti-inflammatory, and as a natural bug repellent.
Cajeput has great value in skin care and wound cleansing, stimulates the mind and assists with getting back into balance. Its antiseptic and expectorant properties make it excellent for respiratory tract infections such as colds, laryngitis, bronchitis and it may be helpful for asthma, as well as nasal and sinus congestion.
Pain relieving properties make it useful in massage for neuralgia, headaches, muscle stiffness and general aches and pains. The oil is also reputed to have insect repellent qualities and can be applied to sooth insect bites.
Orange (Citrus Cinensis) – Use as room deodorizer, decongestant, stress relief and stimulation.
A refreshing sweet citrus aroma that delivers a multitude of uses.
A widely used room deodorizer with uplifting effects. Can also help relieve the symptoms of colds and other respiratory ailments.
Its strong licorice flavor and aroma is gained from the steam distillation from the crushed seeds of the plant
Clove (Eugenia Caryophyllus) – Use as massage oil for stress relief and aphrodisiac, pain relief, skin care.
A sweet warm scent and very intense flavor. Clove oil is known to provide potent antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits and is a preservative when used in all-natural products.
Clove can be applied topically to irritated skin, combined with Coconut or Argan oil to create an aromatherapy massage oil, or mixed in other products to enhance their benefits. Clove oil can be used with a diffuser to sooth respiratory illnesses, relieve stress and treat headaches.
All of their essential oil’s are 10ml. You can buy them in sets of 5 for $34.99 or single bottles at $14.99 AND they’re currently running a special, if you buy 5, you get a FREE Diffuser! How is that for getting a bargain?
Next up is the Yoga Mat Spray ($9.99 MSRP) comes in a 100ml bottle. There are 3 varieties to choose from but I was sent to Lavender which I love. It is such a relaxing fragrance. Although I am not a “yogi” I like to spray it around the house creating a calming environment.
“The missing link to achieve the perfect end to your practice. With just a few simple sprays you can sterilize your mat and bring on inner peace”
I also tested out the “Supa Dupa” Moon Flower incense and whoa are they nice and big! I hate getting incense and they burn so quick and done. These are huge! They burn very slow and are very aromatic. I was impressed by how long they were as well. They come in a really nice box too!
I got the 12 long sticks, which is $12.99 but they have a smaller option where you can get 6 for $6.99 as well.
Utama Spice’s natural incense sticks are all created using locally sourced spices and herbs. Lovingly hand rolled in Bali the incense is dipped in pure essential oil making these incense one of the most lovely smelling natural dupa sticks
“This long burning incense is a blend of flowers, barks, herbs, oils, nuts and spices using no synthetic or endangered plants. Wrapped in recycled paper. Handmade with Fair Trade and Tri Hita Karana principles.”
Lastly and most important, the Sonoma Yi Diffuser. This is the one I am GIVING AWAY to one of you lucky readers! You can pick up some oils for it in the Utama store or use any you currently have (although I have to say, that you SHOULD definitely check out some from Utima as they are high quality and so many to choose from).
Not only is it a Luxury ultrasonic diffuser, it is also an air humidifier and attractive LED lamp.
Elegant, clean design a perfect complement for the home, studio, spa, or salon.
The holidays alre coming and custom gifts are always a favorite from the creator and the receiver. There are many different custom companies out there to choose a custom gift from like canvas companies and Etsy.
So how do you choose one that is right for you?
If you’re like me, you want the best service to be sure your product comes out exactly like you envision it. That’s one of the hard parts about ordering online is you’re dealing with a computer program in most cases instead of a human being who actually cares about how your order turns out.
That is one of the biggest upsides of The Canvas Factory and it separates them from all of the others.
I know from personal experience that they will make sure your custom item comes out no less than perfect.
Most of us take our most important photos with outlr cell phones and do not own an expensive professional camera, or even those who do, sometimes you do not have that camera on you when a special time happens and you find yourself using your cell phone anyway to capture that special moment.
I wanted to see if they could make a larger canvas out of my cell phone photo come out just as if I had taken it with a professional camera or if they’d be like the others and just let me upload a sub-par photo that would come out blurry, yell at me that it isn’t great quality and ask if I still want to continue placing my crappy photo order just so they can get the money for my order.
Well to my surprise, I uploaded a photo from Facebook, a photo of me and my siblings that I love, but the quality was not very good due to the size even though I had changed it into the recommended size in the paint program to try and force it through… it went through.
However! I was contacted within 24 hours by a real person via email stating that they are working on my order and they found it to be more blurry than I’d probably like.
They actually attached 2 photos to the email as well to specify why they didn’t think the quality would be good and even though I still told them to put it through, they asked one last time because it was that important to them that they provide a quality product.
They explained to me that using a photo from new cell phones was perfectly fine in most cases as the cameras on the phones were actually almost equal to the correct size they needed, however that when uploading that same photo from the cell phone to a picture saving website or to Facebook drastically reduces the size of the photo by the program which reduces the pixels and quality for printing which I did not realize since to me the photo looks the same quality when I view it in Facebook.
Wow. What amazing service, seriously!
I was able to provide a different photo for them to use via the email they sent, directly from my cell phone, in which they showed me what the quality of the end result would be and I was happy with it.
Within 4 days (standard shipping) I received the package. Here is how it shipped to me;
I couldn’t wait to see how this turned out as I wanted to give this canvas as a gift to my mother and it was an important picture to me.
Here is the final result! What do you think?
I LOVE how this came out.
Even the back is different then others. Much more study and closed in.
And you are in luck! The Canvas Factory stands by their mission statement “We want to make online photo printing easy and affordable for everyone.” and want you to see for yourself so they asked me to do a GIVEAWAY for my readers!
The winner will be able to create their own custom canvas in the standard size of their choosing – 50x40cm (20×16 inch) amounting of $32.25 value OR 18x12inch (45x30cm) amounting of $24.50 value both will include FREE SHIPPING as well.
Take note this giveaway offer is open only for USA and Canada residents.

I think every new parent looks for a miracle to help their baby when that first fussy fit arrives.
Typically during te first week home from the hospital, adjusting to life and formula/breastmilk, your new baby is bound to fuss a bit. Usually tiny gas bubbles are the problem and they can be fixed with mylicon drops of fennel when my boys were young.
Now, there is an organic alternative that doesn’t only help with gas, but any uncomfort your babies belly may feel, even hiccups!

Let’s take a look at some of the brand’s and what my fav’s are!
Hyland’s is well known for its homeopathic remedies and trusted by parents everywhere. I know people will know their teething tablets, but I’m the biggest fan of their Cold N’ Cough medicine. It’s safe for ages 2+ and seems to really help when my kids have colds. I’ve used it the last year since they’ve put it into stores.
Noyah prides itself on 2 things. HEALTH & BEAUTY combined. With all natural beauty products, you can feel good about the products you’re buying. Even better, right now, for every item you purchase and tag online, Noyah will donate a lip balm to the homeless. SheaMoisture offers some wonderful alternatives to your everyday lotions like b&b and Vaseline. It’s amazing smelling and keeps your skin glowing all day. Goddess Garden has some bad-ass products! Essential oils, sun repair products and sun screens. They even have a monthly subscription box if oils that are hand picked for you. Everything is free shipping over $35!
Babyganics offers a wide range of organic items for baby. The most well known, and one I love the most is their hand sanitizer. We were stocked on this for both of my children as babies and no one was allowed to touch or hold them until they sanitized! The best part is there is virtually no harsh smell and no alcohol drying out your skin so it’s safe to use as often as you want. Jack ‘n Jill is representing with the all natural baby toothpaste. I wish i had this when my children were infants. Starting healthy habits young are key. Ella’s Kitchen has the squeezable foods that are easy for parents and yummy for children. My kids were never a fan of the squeeze pouches unfortunately but I’ve always envied those who has kids who were. Easy to throw in your diaper bag and go!
Ishga Organic Skincare has provided some of the top skin care products to the US. Ish-what? Foreign is usually a sign that it might be some undiscovered secret to us Americans and these Scottish Seaweed skincare products are going to be all the new rage.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hyland’s and Promotional Partners. Uses for Hyland’s products are based on traditional homeopathic practice. They have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration.
