Magic Bullet Giveaway


My household has always been one to buy a lot of fruit and veg, snack healthily and to cook from scratch, yet it is so easy for me to forget that while I have been feeding the kids fruits and nuts and veg and all the things you’re supposed to eat throughout the day, I haven’t been eating them all the time, myself! 

I always keep a stocked fridge and fruit bowl, each meal comes with some kind of nutritionally beneficial element and snacks usually include fruit or a small cheese and grape plate etc, but I knew that I could do more to keep myself on track and to get my body those key elements needed to make it right through the day without a bump! 

Well, as luck would have it, summer is here, and with it I have acquired a Magic Bullet! The Magic Bullet is just what I needed to kick start myself into better eating habits and since it arrived at my door it has become the most used gadget in my kitchen, to date! 

The Magic Bullet is fast and comes with 2 different blades for various shredding and chopping needs from blending carrots, apples and bananas to grinding nuts and coffee beans! You can make shakes and smoothies with the touch of a button or throw out some salsa or sauces in seconds to suit your mood and desire! 

I have started to experiment with smoothies, mostly, this past week, and have been looking for fruits and veggies that go together and hosting some taste tests with various friends and family members to see what they think and to make a note of the concoctions that hit the right spot! 

I have found that apple, carrot and pineapple with a little orange juice thrown in, makes a delicious tasting treat, and a great way to make a sorbet (with a little more ice). Sweeten or sharpen with added agave or lemon/lime and add a little flax seed to finish it off!

I have also found that anything with ice cream, milk or yogurt in it makes a sweet, tempting treat for kids and because you can choose how much to add in, and see the fruit or veg that you combine it with, you know exactly what your kids are eating, which isn’t always so with store-bought treats! 

To sweeten up a juice or a smoothie, I like to add monk fruit or agave and forgo other sugars or sweeteners and most of the time the fruit is sweet enough that there is no need for anything extra at all! 

I have also been able to up my children’s vegetable intake by providing them with home-made carrot, apple, pineapple, grape and juice blended Popsicles! They are getting nothing but goodness in the Popsicles and the pineapple makes it a little sweeter and so there isn’t even a real need to add agave either, though fine if you have a sweet tooth for that extra kick! 

You can pick up a Popsicle container for about $1 in many stores and it is always handy to have a couple in the freezer when you want to switch up recipes and to cool the kids down in the summer, while knowing they are getting the nutritional benefits as well! 

The Magic Bullet has really kicked things up a gear, here, and I can’t even explain enough how wonderfully simple this product is to use and how versatile it is at the very same time! 

With 4 serving cups, 1 tall mixer, 1 short cup, 1 flat blade, 1 raised blade, shaker and storage lids and the unit itself, you do get a lot for the money you spend. 

You simple gather up your fruits, veggies or other goodies that you’d like to mix and add water, ice, juice, milk or whatever liquid compliments your other selections and screw on the cap with the blade and turn upside down to connect to the unit. The unit won’t start until the edges are aligned and you push down on it to pulse it and to start combining your selection. 

The pulse feature is a simple one, and if you don’t want to keep pulsing you can lock the top into place and have it blend for you without having to continuously press down. You should watch what you are blending though as you don’t want to over-do it and turn your delicious smoothie, drink or side into a mushy, over-processed mess! 

The Magic Bullet unit is easy to pick up and shake if you need to get that stubborn piece of ice and is safe to do so as long as you follow all of the guidelines. The unit is easy to wipe down and the attachments are easy to rinse and clean with hot, soapy water – just, again, follow the instructions to keep your Magic Bullet in the best possible condition for longer! 

The Magic Bullet comes with a recipe book that gives you a great start, with tips and tricks and ideas for the things you can make in minutes with the power it has behind it, and even shows you how to make sauces that go right from the grater to the microwave and then to the table! 

You can make sauces, salsa, mix up cookie, grind beans and whip cream, it is all possible with the Magic Bullet, but my favourite thing is by far the smoothies!

You can make whatever you like, and however you like it, too – you want to make a chunky salsa? Throw in your ingredients, pulse a few times and voila, chunky salsa! Want to make smooth salsa? Blend away, make it a little thinner with more liquid and/or blend longer and boom! Smooth salsa or even soups for the taking in seconds! The Magic Bullet really is that awesome!

Review & Giveaway: Stickerkid

Your child goes to school and two other kids have the same lunch bag as she does. The “sticky” label you put on falls off. The other kids don’t have a label on their bags. The kids don’t know which bag belongs to who until they start going through what’s inside.

It’s a Kindergarten nightmare.


You could keep trying to put on your own “sticky” labels or you could try something new. For some reason every time I put a label on a lunchbox, book bag, or something else, it comes off. It’s annoying!

So, what’s a momma to do?

How about trying some new personalized stickers that work and look cool at the same time?


I recently tried out some labels from Stickerkid. These labels are great because not only do they stick well, they are also fun to design. You can choose labels for belongings or clothing. I chose ones for belongings. Once you choose which ones you’re going to go with you can customize them. You can pick your own design to suit your child’s personality. You can even add your child’s photo. There’s no mistaking who belongs to what items if you do this!

Stickerkid labels are great for school, daycare, and even camp. They’re even good for inside the house if you have more than one child. This way you can tell who belongs to what minus the arguments.

If you want to try labels from Stickerkid, here’s your chance. The Mommy Rundown is partnering with Stickerkid to give away $20 worth of labels plus free shipping. Enter here! Good Luck!

Review & Giveaway: Meat Tenderizer Mallet

Go into any kitchen store and there are rows and rows of gadgets used for just about anything you can imagine. Some are worth the money and some are definitely not. Trust me; I have a few of those that are definitely not. So, when you find a product that does what it says, it’s refreshing.

With that said, one of the “must have” kitchen items is a meat tenderizer, especially if you are making chicken cutlets. If the chicken is thick and tough it not only tastes bad, it takes longer to cook and can burn in the pan.

Chicken is usually a bit thick when you take it out of the package.

Before the Meat Tenderizer Mallet

Before the Meat Tenderizer Mallet

So, I tried out the Meat Tenderizer Mallet from Cave Man Tools to see if it would make my chicken cutlets thinner and easier to cook.

After just a few uses, I could tell the chicken was thinner than other times when I cooked it without using the mallet. It was thinner and easier to bread and fry. The chicken cooked faster without burning.

After the Meat Tenderizer Mallet

Once it was cooked, it was also easier to cut up for my kids to eat. Many kids (at least mine!) tend to shy away from meat when it is too thick for them to chew. This benefit alone is worth it!




If you want to try the Meat Tenderizer Mallet for yourself, here’s your chance. The Mommy Rundown is hosting a giveaway for one of these mallets from Cave Man Tools. Giveaway ends April 15, 2015 at midnight!

Review & Giveaway: The Knot Genie

We all know getting a child to sit still to brush hair is more than difficult. Add a few tangles and knots in the mix and it’s a nightmare.

The brush gets stuck in their hair.

They yell “ouch”.

They don’t sit still.

They get annoyed.

You get annoyed. All in the name of not looking like they just rolled out of bed and haven’t brushed their hair in a week.


If you have little girls, you know exactly what I’m talking about. That’s why I was super excited to try out The Knot Genie.  At first, my girls looked at me like I was crazy. But, when I told my older daughter, who is notorious for tangles and knots, she got excited too.

So, after getting dressed one morning, I put The Knot Genie to the test. I was amazed at how easily I was able to brush out the nasty tangles!


Before The Knot Genie

Before The Knot Genie


I didn’t have to give the brush an extra tug nor did I have to hold the top of my daughter’s head. The secret is in the brush’s different shaped teeth. This allows the knots to come out without pulling the hair out from the root. This has happened to us countless times; thus all the screaming.

After The Knot Genie

After The Knot Genie



The Knot Genie glided down my daughter’s hair until all the tangles were gone and her hair looked lustrous and smooth.  My daughter was extremely happy because it was a painless and quick process! She liked it so much she started to brush the back of her hair too.

Now, the Knot Genie has become part of our morning and night time routine. It can become part of your’s too!

Just enter below for your chance to win one for yourself! Good Luck!

Baby Bullet Giveaway

Magic Bullet: BABY BULLET!

(Disclaimer: Mom’s Gone Bronson received the following for review and all thoughts are her own. Your views may differ, thank you!)

Everybody! Gather around and meet the Magic Bullet: Baby Bullet – the simplest, easiest and most convenient way to make your own baby-food, from scratch, at home, just the way your baby is going to love it and with all the goodness and nutrition he or she is going to need! The Mommy Rundown is helping to spread the word about the product & a giveaway! 

For as long as I can remember, I have cooked from scratch and I love to feed my children good, healthier foods without any of the added sugars, sweetners or other products that just simply do not have to be there and I have always mashed and smashed and smoothed the hard way – though have managed to get the job done!

The Baby Bullet really takes out all of the stress that goes along with the baby-food-mashing olympics, though, with its 2 stainless steel blades, high-torque power base, 3 piece batch bowl and storage and mixing accessories!

To make life even easier, the Magic Bullet: Baby Bullet comes with a guide full of recipe ideas for baby and includes goodies from a simple fruit or veg for babies eating for the first time, through to those eating mixed, thicker or a little more complex varieties as they grow!

The Baby Bullet really does take you through the first stages of baby-feeding and lasts beyond! You can always make apple sauces, blends, smoothies, even ice lollies from fruit and veggies and none of the added stabalizers or unnecessary sugars! Great!

I personally LOVE apple and raspberry sauce and my children can never have enough! Making a soup is easy with the Baby Bullet and anything I am making for myself, I can put into the Baby Bullet and have it ready to go for little mouths with the push of a button!

I am actually thoroughlly impressed with this cute little contraption and you can’t help but smile seeing that big grin staring back at you every time you whip up a batch of goodness for the kids! 

The Baby Bullet actually comes with a storage tray and storage cups, which are just the perfect size for babies to toddlers and make a great way to treat yourself without going overboard, too!

Make a weeks worth of meals in less than 5 minutes, which is just what you want when planning with a house full! I know I can cook up some goodness, throw it in the Baby Bullet and freeze it down ready to go!

My children LOVE the cute cups and are happy to reach for an apple sauce in a smiley cup then something that isn’t perhaps so great for them! I love that I can wash the entire set out and save on trash and recycling with this set and there are just so many bonuses to making your own food, period.

I really wish The Baby Bullet had been available when my older children were babies, but delighted that I have been able to try one out now! It is just the perfect size to make the perfect children’s portions and will keep me going back for more as I learn new recipes and goodies that I still want to try! 

I would definitely recommend giving one a try if cooking for your little one is something that you have been thinking about – I think the Baby Bullet is a really good start! It doesn’t take up very much space in your kitchen, either and so you can always have it ready to go!

If you would like to find out more about The Baby Bullet, you can find them on Twitter, Facebook and over at their blog, with other outlets such as Pinterest and Instagram to keep you in touch, which you can also find in our giveaway form!
