Michigan Mama’s Product Faves (Spring Edition 2022)

Michigan Mama’s Product Faves (Spring Edition 2022)

Happy spring! Well, here in Michigan, it’s been trying to feel like spring with some warmer days but we still fight those cold days including snow and ice. Hang in there, right? 😉

With a new month and season comes our next segment of Michigan Mama’s Product faves, spring edition, 2022!  Check out these fun and unique products below!

LUXEAR Cooling Pillowcase

I received a cooling pillowcase ($29.95 value) in exchange for this product’s fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

A cooling pillowcase? Yes! Sounds amazing, right? Especially as we approach the hot summer months. Now, this isn’t a magic pillow that just stays cool all the time, , it’s best to use it in the air conditioning or with a fan.

Even though I have still had the heat on with our colder temps outside, I noticed that the pillowcase does keep a cooler feel to the fabric. It’s made of special Japanese Q-Max >0.4 Arc-Chill Cooling Fibers. It absorbs the body heat and transfers it away from you as you sleep. Another perk? Your bedhead will be reduced every morning. You’ll have smoother frizz-free hair every morning. I’ll have to try this out myself as my hair is pretty frizzy in the mornings. 😉

My husband has been trying out the pillowcase and has noticed the difference. He gets hot easily at night even with the air conditioning running in the summer, so we are looking forward to him trying it out in the hotter months when we can turn on the air conditioning.

The material is perfect for all seasons and easy to wash. However, they do recommend you do not put the pillowcase into the dryer. Hang them dry and avoid direct contact with the sun.

In honor of this great product, they are giving a discount to our readers! Use code: 45JI5R8C  and receive a 5% discount at checkout.  The end date for this deal is  2022-12-13.

I would like to thank the folks over at the LUXEAR Store for giving me the opportunity to try out their product! It’s highly recommended. You can browse their other products here.

Mary’s Gone Crackers

I received samples of Mary’s Gone Crackers (I received $21.75 value, Real Thins are $3.99 a box and the regular crackers are $4.59 a box) in exchange for this product’s fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

Any vegan, organic, and non-GMO fans out there? While I’m not vegan, I do appreciate organic and non-GMO products for healthier snacking. I was definitely open to trying out Mary’s Gone Crackers!

“The Mary’s Gone Crackers® seed was planted the day Mary discovered the power to create amazingly good snacks using only whole, plant-based ingredients. The popularity of her tasty crackers quickly spread far beyond her kitchen, inspiring her to walk away from a successful career to follow her passion.”

You can read more about Mary’s Gone Crackers, here.

The flavors I received to try were:

  • Real Thin Crackers: Garlic Rosemary
  • Real Thin Crackers: Chipotle
  • Mary’s Gone Crackers: Super Seed Classic Crackers
  • Mary’s Gone Crackers: Super Seed Basil Garlic
  • Mary’s Gone Crackers Herb Crackers

The crackers’ protein is sourced from plants, they are non-GMO verified, they proudly support organic farmers, and more!

The crackers are indeed crunchy and toasty. If you are not used to products that are plant-based, etc., you may need to acquire a taste for a few of the flavors of crackers. I found that the Chipotle Real Thin Crackers were more of a challenge on my tastebuds but the other flavors were pretty tasty. I found them even more pleasant dipping some of them in hummus. I’m sure there are other healthy dips out there that would pair well with the crackers. My favorite is the Garlic Rosemary!

The crackers are also gluten free! You can also get creative and top the crackers with your favorite healthy toppings.

So whether you’re putting together a charcuterie board for an appetizer or just want some delicious and healthy crackers to snack on, Mary’s Gone Crackers has got you covered.

These crackers will be sure to please any guests you have as well! Mary’s are even a favorite among celebrities like Katherine Schwarzenegger who recently spoke with US Weekly saying she “eat at least one box of Mary’s Gone Crackers a day.” Mary’s also makes the perfect pairing for a glass of wine.

I would like to thank the folks over at Mary’s Gone Crackers for giving me the opportunity to try their products. I’m still snacking on them. 😉

Here they come…Organauts!

“Know Yourself is home to award-winning children’s educational anatomy toys. Shop our collection of toys, which includes our newest cast of characters: the Organauts! Collect all five collectible vinyl figurines that teach children about the organs of the body.”

As a former preschool teacher, I am absolutely tickled and amazed at these toys and the concept in general. Brilliant! I totally wish I had these to share with my students and even my own girls when they were younger.

Each Organaut figurine also comes with a Mini Comic Book and Collector’s Guide Book.

Wanderwild‘s themed backpacks are the perfect practical gift to give any child who loves to get out and explore!

Wanderwild backpacks come in three styles: The Explorer, The Wanderer, and The Adventurer. They have fun prints and patterns, plenty of pockets, adjustable straps, and details such as fidget tabs for kids’ little fingers.

The company encourages families to explore and make memories together through fun curated activities on their website. They also give a portion of each sale to selected organizations that exist to address childhood hunger, education needs, and spreading kindness. Amazing, right?

I received the Explorer Hearburst backpack to review with my middle daughter. It’s recommended for all ages. While it says up to 8th grade, my 10th grader still loves it. Here are the features:

  • Reinforced seams and handles
  • Water-resistant
  • Economic Padded Straps
  • Chest Straps for Security
  • Fidget Tabs for Wiggly Fingers

You can even have the backpacks customized!
