One of the most stand-out products for me at the International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago were the silicone lids from Charles Viancin. Not only beautiful, they are amazing. I was at a store recently that sold them and there was a sample lid and bowl on the counter because as the owner said, “You can’t imagine what this product is like, until you try it.”
What first got my attention was the design of the product. These nature-inspired creations are beautiful! The colors and shapes are truly pretty. Then after I tried it, I was hooked. I asked the company to send me an assortment for review and they did. Here is my daughter, demonstrating the Sunflower Silicone Lid.
Made from food grade silicone, the Sunflower Silicone Lid seals tight on all smooth surfaces. It works equally well on stainless steel, glass, plastic or melamine. It creates an airtight, watertight seal. You can use it to cover leftovers in the fridge and then reheat them in the microwave. Unlike plastic wrap, that fills landfills, the Silicone Lids are reusable. Just wash (and they are super-easy to wash!) and reuse. They come in three different sizes and range from $7.99-$15.99 in price.
On the package, it says that the Sunflower Lid “Creates Smiles” and it does! It’s one of those, “you won’t believe this” products. It’s not huge, it’s not life-changing, but it’s just cool!
In addition to Silicone Lids of various styles and designs, Charles Viancin also makes other fun and functional kitchen products. Some examples are:
· Cabbage Colander and Steamer: Drain and Steam the Cool Way
Cooking pasta and steaming veggies just got a whole lot cooler with the new, flexible cabbage-designed colander and steamer. The temperatureresistant silicone is ideal for use in everything from themicrowave to the refrigerator, and can be wrappedcompactly to reduce cabinet clutter. It can also be rolled up for easy storage. The colander retails for $19.99.
· The Overboil Ring: Boil Confidently, Without the Mess
Keep liquid from boiling over on the stovetop and making a mess with this silicone ring with raised edges. A central opening allows for simple stirring, mixing and serving without removing the ring. The OverBoil Ring is available in violet or blue and retail between $11.99-17.99.
· Lily Pad Tea Infuser: Steep and Keep Tea Warm
Brew yourself a cup of tea and keep it hot while it steeps, all with one simple device.Inspired by lily pads, this tea infuser allows you to pour the tea leaves you wish to use into the perforated tea bulb. The lily pad lid keeps tea hot as it steeps. The Lily Pad Tea Infuser retails for $14.99 for infuser, mug and coaster.
· Bulb Wine Stoppers: Keep Wine Fresh and Beautiful
Every open bottle of wine should be topped with a beauty from nature. These silicone floral inspired wine stoppers are perfect for the home. Available in sunflower, hibiscus and Lily Pad, these stoppers add a pop of color to the party.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was sent an assortment of products for review.
This morning my daughter said, “Mommy, if today is the 14th that means the 21st is a week from today, right?” I have no idea what she is talking about and mumble, “uh, huh”. A few minutes later, I hear, “Yay! Monsters, Monsters, Monsters!” Aha. Monsters University is opening in theaters, June 21st, and we’ll be there!

We were lucky to see a pre-screening of the movie at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration last month and can’t wait to see it again!
From the movie’s press release: “Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.”
Stars from Disney Channel “A.N.T. Farm” with Mike and Sully
Did You Know?
The original, Monsters Inc. was nominated for four Oscars®: Best Animated Feature Film, Best Original Score, Best Sound Editing and Best Original Song—“If I Didn’t Have You,” for which it won. If you’re like me and enjoy seeing all the Oscar nominated films, I predict you will get a head start on this year’s nominees by seeing Monsters University!
Here’s a trailer to see a bit of the fun!

What Barbie memories do you have? Happy hours are spent by thousands of girls learning fashion and having fun! I remember my frugal mom buying me Barbie knock-offs and yearning for a real, Barbie doll. My favorite part about having and styling my own, was the shoes. All those itty-bitty fashion statements!
I’m not sure exactly how this works, but it is amazingly accurate. It’s been tested in several case studies at hospitals, including St. Mary’s Hospital. Read the full text of instructions before looking at the attachment on the next page.
Instructions: The attached picture is of two identical dolphins. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins. The more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress that person is experiencing.
Look at the following photograph (click on continue reading) and if you find more than one or two differences, you need to take a break…a long break. How many do you see?
