Need Brands is a company started by our favorite sister team, Tia & Tamera!! This wonderful line of all-natural and organic, vegan and cruelty free products are ideal for today’s modern mother and child. The ladies developed the brand to produce products that are safe, effective, and environmentally conscious yet don’t break the bank! With times like they are today, this is really something you need to get behind…there’s just not enough out there!!
Stretchy! is an awesome stretch mark treatment infused with Moroccan Agran Oil. With so many stretch mark creams on the market, it’s hard to know what’s best for you. That’s why Tia and Tamera decided to develop an all-natural, additive free product that really works! Treat your body to the best deep moisturizing treatment that smoothes your skin and helps repair stretch marks. Even better…Stretchy! is available at a price point that doesn’t break the bank!
It’s really a great product that does the trick, especially at such a reasonable price point.
In addition to that, here are some of the other great products:
Squeaky – Natural & Organic Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer
Ok, it’s that time of year again…at least in those places with cold climates. You have to crank the heat again, but most of the time, that makes the air really dry. You get the dry cough, the dry nose, and the high heating bills (ok, that has nothing to do with this, personal gripe). Humidifiers help provide temporary relief from cough and congestion, counteract the effects of harsh, dry air. The makers of Vicks humidifiersconducted a new survey of US moms and found that dry skin, stuffy noses, and chapped lips are the three most irritating wintertime ailments. Guess what? Vicks humidifiers bring temporary relief for that as well!
If the Vicks survey wasn’t enough to entice you…the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using a cool mist humidifier, such as the Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier or Vicks Starry Night, in nurseries and children’s bedrooms during the winter months. Warm mist humidifiers, however, are an ideal option if you’re looking for 95% bacteria-free water and the ability to use Vicks Vaposteam® for added comfort through soothing vapors. Both warm and cool mist humidifiers are effective at raising home relative humidity levels to the 40-60% range, which studies have shown can reduce influenza survival in the air and on commonly-touched surfaces like sink faucets, door handles, and countertops.
Here’s a breakdown of the new Vicks humidifiers for fall / winter 2013
Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier (V4600) – Children and adults alike can now experience relief from cold and cough symptoms through the use of a humidifier that requires no filter! Offering hassle-free maintenance and operation, the new Vicks FilterFreeCool Mist Humidifier is convenient to use, easy-to-clean, ultra-quiet and offers a 1.2 gallon tank which can run for up to 30 hours between fillings. The unit’s rubber feet take the worry out of scratching delicate surfaces.
Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier (V750) – Featuring a soft glow nightlight and automatic shut-off for added safety, the new Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier heats water to produce a 95% bacteria-free steam vapor, releasing moist, warm air for fast, soothing relief from pesky cold and flu symptoms affecting airways and nasal passages.
Pink Vicks Starry Night Cool Moisture Humidifier (V3700M-V) – Also available in purple, green, blue – and now pink – the Vicks Starry Night Humidifier is ideal for use in nurseries and children’s bedrooms. The humidifier releases cool moisture into the air and projects a multicolor changing, star-filled night’s sky on walls and the ceiling through the unit’s built-in, independently controlled projector. Best used in medium-sized rooms, this model runs for up to 24 hours on a 1 gallon tank and features multiple output settings and quiet operation.

Every year, people like my husband (and me, who am I kidding) in the Northeast look forward to the release of Mallomars and this past September marked the official kick off to the season (which runs September-March). Don’t you just love seasonal offerings? Seriously, I was just talking about this with Bill the other day. I love the wave of pumpkin that hits come September. On the other hand, the fact that you can get peaches year round is kind of a drag. Sure, it’s convenient, but the quality suffers and it all loses some of it’s charm.
Here’s some history, people:
In the early 1900’s NABISCO manufactured a cookie called Marshmallow Crème, which grocers sold by weight from large square tin containers. The demand for Marshmallow Crème steadily increased, and consumers began to ask for it to be sold in retail-size fiberboard packages. The result: the launch of Mallomars in 1913. First sold to a grocer in Hoboken, NJ on November 13, 1913, Mallomars have been pleasing marshmallow creme cookie lovers for 100 years.
Due to the chocolate coating, Mallomars were originally only baked and shipped during the cooler months – from September through March. While there have been advancements in conditioned shipping and storage, Mallomarscontinue to be sold during the cooler seasons to maintain tradition. Although the packaging has evolved in look and form, the signature cookie has maintained the same, delicious flavor that has created a loyal following for generations.
Anyway, this year marks 100 years of this marshmallow crème cookie goodness! Yes, these little drops of tastiness have been around for a century! Isn’t that crazy?? I mean, how mant things are around for that long?
Check out the gallery below for some really cool ads from all the way back to 1913:
