Freddy's Friday Find: VEMAYCA Cosmetic Bags

Today's "find" is for all of the women out there!

How many of you have makeup bags that you keep in your purse that when you open them you say to yourself--"Why can't someone make a pretty cosmetic bag that has a liner that can be switched out for a clean one"? Powder, Lipsticks --all kinds of stuff make the inside of your bag look pretty yucko!

I have found your answer my friends--Vemayca Cosmetic bags come in a couple of different styles but the greatest think about this cosmetic bag and what makes it so unique is that it is the only cosmetic bag that has a snap in liner that can be switched out for a fraction of what it would cost to buy a whole new bag.

You have to check it out! The bags range from $24.99-34.99 and come a couple of different styles/colors. The liner comes with it but if you want to purchase addtional--which you will they are $4.99 or $15/3 liners.

So if you are looking for a gift for your girlfriends, babysitters, teachers, or any woman in your life--this is a great one.

Freddy's Friday Find! Sparkup Magical Book Reader

Have you ever seen the Hallmark commercial with the little story that Grandma can record her voice and read you a story from miles away?

Well now there is a product that can magically read to your child out loud either with your voice, Grandma's voice or the voice that you can download on the Spark Up Reader website (

The proprietary visual technology is amazing!  As your child turns the page the Sparkup Reader knows exactly where your child is in the book and will read that page to your child. 

What an amazing teaching tool for the first time reader or even a visually impaired child. In a world filled with "screens"--it is so wonderful to give children the love of reading a fabulous book and the Sparkup Reader is something that can make it even more fun.

Another great gift for the holidays. Here is the link to buy it:

Freddy's Friday Find--The Pillow Fairy!

Now that Halloween is past--we are going to try to post a Freddy's Friday Find every week until the holidays! 
Hannukah comes very early this year--in fact, in my house we are calling it Gobblekah or Thanksgivingkuh because for the first time EVER and we won't see it again in our lifetimes--the first night of Hannukah comes on Thanksgiving!

Better get shopping! Freddy is here to help! We found the SWEETEST book. I love to give books to kids for the holidays--whichever holiday you celebrate. If you know me--you know I never met a holiday I didn't love. Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanza, Chinese New Year! All occasions to by a little something for the ones we love.

So.... about every 25 years or so, there comes a book that is destined to be a classic--think Good Night Moon, When you Give a Moose a Muffin, Giving Tree--you get the idea. We have found one of those such books:
The Pillow Fairy!!!

The Pillow Fairy, written by Marcia Gale Riley tells the story of a little boy, named Matt (her own son, I believe) who likes to do lots of things which don't include sleeping in his own bed at night! How many of us have been there right? I created Sweet Dreams spray just for that very issue! 

Did you all know that there is a Pillow Fairy that comes to visit little girls and boys who sleep in their own beds all night long? Well, indeed there is! She leaves a little surprise under your pillow if you do! Sometimes it's a sticker, sometimes it's a quarter, sometimes it's even just as simple as a love note.

It is the sweetest book and a wonderful tool to help parents keep their little ones snug as a bug in a rug--in their beds all night long. 

So what are you waiting for! The first night of Hannukah is 28 days away! What a wonderful gift to give to any little one in your life--and it is "Freddy" approved!  Find The Pillow Fairy at or on Amazon.
