ChefVantage Salt & Pepper Shakers


*This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

I will be hosting Thanksgiving for our family again this year so I have started the process of updating some of my table pieces.  I found this great set of salt and pepper shakers from ChefVantage and I really like them.  They have a great sleek look.  I love the silver body, goes well with any decor.  Great size, you can fill them up and they don’t have to be refilled for awhile.

Each of the shakers has two different pour settings.  One with larger holes and one with smaller holes.  I like to use the larger holes setting when I am pouring into foods while cooking and the smaller holes when I am pouring it onto food that has been cooked and served.

They are good quality.  Very nicely made.  Very nice set and they are going to look great on my Thanksgiving table this year!

You can find them on Amazon!

Famili Kitchen Scale

I just recently started eating healthier and part of that is making sure I control my portion sizes.  This scale really comes in handy when it comes to weighing my foods.  It has a nice large surface you can set the food items on.  Very nice clear and bright digital read out makes it easy to see the readings.  You can choose between different measurement units depending on what you are weighing.  Very well made, works great every single time, and it is very accurate.  I also love that it is orange, it goes great with all my decor in the kitchen.  Very nice scale and for the price you can’t beat it.

October Elf Baby Socks


These socks are so cute!! My daughter is have a little boy in January so we are super excited.  After having nothing but girls in our family for so long I am having a blast shopping for little boy items (it’s a hole new world for me).  These little socks are great quality.  Very well made, durable, great materials.  You get six different pairs in this one set.  You have two that looks like paint dripping down from the top (blue and a tan color) and you get four animals (monkey, bear, and two that look like little foxes to me).  Super cute color combos, very stylish.  I love the little ears that some of them have, so funny.  I’m going to give these to her at her shower, hope she loves them.

Find them on Amazon!

Green Frog Friends Lunch Box


This little backpack is adorable!!  I got it for my seven year old to use as a lunch bag.  She likes to take her lunch to school most days and this is a great bag for her.  It’s a pretty big size so she can fit a lot in it.  In fact if you were going on a family trip you could easily fit more then one lunch in it.  It’s tall enough she can put a thermos in it as well which is really nice.  And it fits in standing up so I don’t have to worry about it leaking.  It’s made of a very durable rubber material that is super strong, easy to clean, and keeps it’s shape really well.  Has straps so they can carry it like a regular backpack.  The bird character on the front is bright and vibrant, super cute.  She loves it!

Here is some additional information from the company:


  • Incredibly light EVA material body
  • Large main compartment with room for sandwich, fruit, juice box and plenty of room to spare
  • Fun lovable Green Frog Friends character
  • Wipes clean in seconds can also be used as a schoolbag and overnight bag
  • Top handle for easy grab and go, adjustable nylon straps for comfort

You can find this adorable little bag on Amazon!

Sweepstakes Diva is back again this year with our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide.  Last years guide was a huge success for all of the companies that we featured.  Our readers loved the reviews and information featured on our guide.  Our giveaway was a huge success as well.

Swaddle Designs zzZipMe Sack


I just recently tried out Swaddle Designs new zzZipMe Sack and I am in love with this.  It’s made of the same great soft material as their swaddle blankets so it’s like wrapping them in a nice soft cuddly blanket but so much easier.  And they can’t kick it off the second you get them all wrapped up.  This is a nice large sack that you can easily slide onto baby.  There are arm holes at the top so you can pull their little arms through.  It zips up the front.  The bottom is closed in so it keeps them nice and warm and swaddled.  This soft and stretchy 100% cotton wearable blanket is perfect for when the baby is ready to transition from swaddling. They are lightweight, breathable an perfect for summertime! They are available in sizes 0-6 months & 6-12 months.


The zipper on this is very well made and a great construction.  It zips up the entire front of the sack.  Has a flap that hides the zipper and then a button that comes across to keep it in place and concealed.  Very nice finished look. The two way zipper makes this sleeping sack easy to use.


Comes in five adorable prints created by designer Lynette Damir. I got this great yellow because when I ordered it I didn’t know if my daughter was having a boy or a girl and this design works great for both.  So if you are giving it as a gift this is a great neutral option.  However they have also have pink, blue and even a grey option.


Swaddle Designs is a great company that features not only this great product but a ton of awesome baby items.  We love this company for our grand children.  Very affordable and great quality items.

Swaddle Designs has also give us an extra to giveaway to one of our readers.  To Enter just click on the button below to go to the giveaway page. Must be 18 or older, US residents only.  Winner will win 1 zzZipMe Sack of their choice.
