Woohoo, thank you to ALL that entered the giveaway for a $100 Amazon Gift Card! This giveaway was sponsored by Kinsights, an online community for parents. I hope that you signed up for a free account.


The WINNER is….. Rita S. (rjsprs…@gmail….)

I am a NETGEAR Ambassador and receive products for free to conduct my reviews.  No compensation was given and all thoughts and opinions are my own.


“The days of crowding around your phone or tablet are officially over. You can mirror the screen of your smartphone or tablet directly to your big screen TV. Peruse your pics. Stream your shows. All in 1080p HD resolution with surround sound. Works with Miracastcertified and Intel WiDi wireless display enabled devices.”

As a blogger, I am always interested in seeing my content on a larger screen! Plus, I was kind of spoiled at my day job by having 2 monitors and when I was growing up to be able to see my computer screen on the TV. I was given the opportunity to review the NETGEAR Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter, and couldn’t wait to get it. The Push2TV Wirelress Display Adapter allows me to bring everything from my laptop screen to my TV. I have the opportunity to live stream my favorite shows via online on the TV wirelessly, watch YouTube videos, share pictures of my family with relatives, etc. My favorite part is that it is wireless– there is NO need to run long cords from your computer to your TV in order to connect for horrible quality. NETGEAR is providing only the best and crisp photo/movie quality ensuring the best experience!! 

Netgear 2

I was impressed at how simple it was to set up the device! As soon as it arrived, I opened it and followed the easy instructions and did it without my husband being home. I simply plugged it in and connected my computer, enabled Intel WiDi and voila- we’re streaming live! Another bonus is that the unit is small and not in the way! We have it on the cabinet next to our entertainment center and no one really even notices it is there. We’ve shared pictures of our little son, Liam, on the TV (better than my small laptop screen) and even watched some TV shows offline with the family! The only downfall is that we cannot use our iPhones to stream live– my husband really wishes that was a capability. Since the iPhone doesn’t have Intel WiDi, we aren’t able to connect. However, I love that I can use my laptop and the sound/video transfers easily! If you’d like to live stream from your phone (Intel WiDi capable), tablet or laptop, this is a must have! What a GREAT Christmas gift for that person that has everything. I know my Dad would love it as he is a real estate agent and this would be helpful in his job– I’m thinking Christmas gift, shh…..

Welcome to This N That with Olivia’s Baby Gift Guide!

Are you a Mom-t0-Be or New Mom? Or maybe even someone looking for a perfect gift for the Mom-to-Be? This N That with Olivia’s Baby Gift Guide will feature products from the best baby brands out there in the form of reviews and sometimes giveaways. Our first little one, Liam Wesley arrived on September 22, 2014 – a few weeks earlier than his due date of October 1, 2014. We’ve been searching for the best baby products for our little boy all through my pregnancy and have already featured some in our Gift Guide! 

  Buggy Love Logo

Our next feature is from BuggyLove and consists of all natural products to keep your child’s buggy clean! BuggyLOVE’s mission statement is simply: Protect our children. Defend our planet. Improve our world. 

Why BuggyLOVE?  In response to the blatant industry “green washing” and prevalent, misleading labeling practices, BuggyLOVE has chosen to refuse the use of logos on our labels that have nothing to do with the authentic, sustainable principals of organic growing and processing methodologies.

This N That with Olivia was given the opportunity to try the BuggyLOVE Organic Stroller Cleaning Kit. Now, we were sent this kit before Liam was born and so his stroller wasn’t too dirty yet. However, since he’s been here, we’ve used his stroller for a variety of things such as going to the park, craft fairs, watching my husband run a 5k in the rain, etc. In the 3 short weeks that Liam has been here we have used his stroller a ton– so guess what, it is dirty! I was excited for the opportunity to try out some cleaning products on his stroller, as I was planning to use some products that we had at home praying that they weren’t too toxic! The kit we were sent is the BuggyLOVE Organic Stroller Cleaning Kit which includes FreshLOVE, PolishLOVE, FabricLOVE, WheelLOVE, Re-usable To-Go Bag, Wheel Scrub Brush, and Re-claimed Microfiber Cloth! 

Buggy Love Set

It’s pretty awesome to have this set in a handy box for storage and easy for gift giving. I love that this set comes ready to use and with natural products that are okay for use around our little Liam. As I said, his stroller has been through a lot since he’s joined our family! Check out how dirty the stroller is… full of dust, dirt and grime! I know that as Liam grows, it will get used more and more and even get dirtier and dirtier ;). That’s what strollers are for, though, right?! Here is the dirtiest part of the stroller, it captures all of the dust and mud as we are pushing Liam in the stroller. Gross, right?! 

stroller before

What I love most about the products is that they are 100% natural, and effective at cleaning Liam’s stroller. The cleaning products have a nice fresh scent to them and helped to clean Liam’s stroller effectively. The one area of his stroller that gets the dirtiest would be the wheels– they take a brunt of the dirt! Also, the fabric in his car seat gets dirty, as he is in the infant carrier. I LOVED using the FabricLOVE on the straps in his seat that get coated in milk as he is drinking a bottle, or spit up when he has one of those accidents. The other day we were at the pediatrician and his diaper didn’t get put on well, so it leaked and we had some urine in the seat. Although you couldn’t see it, I was able to use the FabricLOVE to clean it and ensure that there was no smell left behind. Check out the clean foot rest!! It shines and looks awesome!! Plus, the cleaner smells phenomenal!

Not only did I get the opportunity to try out the BuggyLOVE products, but I have the opportunity to give ONE reader their own BuggyLOVE Organic Stroller Cleaning Kit just like I had!
