Gummy Vitamins!

Gummy Vitamins

Once I was told to start putting my daughter on vitamins [age 9months], I purchased the gummy vitamins. I started her on Disney vitamins for kids. Mind you she had already been finger feeding herself for a few months by this point, so I refused to purchase vitamin drops. She loves to look at the different shapes and colors prior to eating them. In the brand I give my daughter she is to get two and only two a day, prior to being 12 months old I would only give her one due to her age. As much as I love them we also much remember that they are gummy and do melt to prolonged exposure to heat, such as going on a trip in a hot car. That's what happened to me recently, instead of throwing them away I solved my problem and want to let you know how encase this happens for you.

Items Needed:

  • metal pot
  • wisk
  • Pam, or Shortening 
  • candy mold 
  • timer of some kind [i'm using my microwave]
  • napkin
  • butter knife [not pictured]
  • extra container [not pictured]

What to do:

Take the container that you have the melted vitamins in and cut it open, remove vitamins. Place vitamins in metal pot on Medium heat. Make sure during the time of the next step to stir with a wisk from time to time.

Now take your candy mold, Shortening [or spray pam], and napkin. Take the napkin and get a little shortening on it [if your not using spray pam]Now rub the shortening inside the candy mold, very lightly. then run a clean one over it to make sure its thin. [If using spray pam, after spraying it take the  napkin and wipe it down to make sure there is a very thin layer.]

Once the vitamins are melted down to a syrup like substance. pour over the candy mold, take a butter knife and swipe it over the mold to make sure they don't all stick together. Set a timer for 30 minutes and place the mold into the refrigerator. 
Once the timer sounds, take the mold out of the fridge and check to see if it is cool enough to take out of the mold and cut without being gooey. If it's not place it back in the fridge. If it's cool enough the take it out and remove them from the mold. mine where not cool enough yet after 30 minutes due to me using a big ABC mold. Yes the size of the mold effects the outcome. To large of a mold can not only make you wait time longer, but you will also have to cut the vitamins once you take them out of the mold, or you will overdose yourself or child [who ever will be taking the vitamins] on vitamins. Also  DO NOT consume the heated substance until it has cooled down. Make sure during the heating process no child or animal is in the kitchen encase the melted vitamins happen to pop, this will burn the child,animal, or whomever is near it at the time. If you feel you are at risk of being burned then you can wear oven mitts as you heat the vitamins to a syrup. Once Vitamins are cool, and out of the mold you are complete and can put them in a new container for your child. If the mold was bigger them most you will need to cut them into 1/2" pieces [mine will end up all different shapes with impressions in them from the objects in the letters]. Mine of course will not be appealing by any means compared to someone who uses a small heart, flower, truck or any other small object mold. You can also try to do this same thing another way. All you do is after heating the vitamins to a syrup take a dropper [medicine dropper] and ice cold water and make large drops into the water when they will cool down and be little pea shapes. After that you place them in the freezer for 15 minutes and your done. 


Hair Remover Cream

Blade Free Hair Remover Cream [aloe vera enriched]

Directions: Remove clothing and jewelry from area to be treated. Shake well and squeeze lotion into palm of hand. smooth on thickly, DO NOT RUB IN. Wait 5 minutes and then test a small area by wiping off lotion with blade free razor for most women, hair will remove easily after 5 minutes. If hair comes off easily, gently remove hair with blade free razor and luke warm water only. Do not rub or use soap. pat dry. If hair does not come off easily leave lotion on for a few more minutes DO NOT EXCEED 15 MINUTES. Do not allow lotion to dry on skin. Keep the tube tightly closed when not in use.
So I tested this product twice and waited a good amount of time to see if my skin got irritated. The first time I used it I waited 5 minutes, as directed, and not all the hair removed easily I had to use a razor on the rest. The second time I waited 15 minutes and once again not all hair was removed and I had to use a razor. If you wait longer then 15 minutes it drys on the skin. My skin did get irritated the last time because I used body wash to clean my legs off even though directed not to. This is a very cheap, not worth it brand. I have tried most brands and they work and I love them, but this isn't one of them. So if you see this brand in stores it is not worth a buy at all. You will be wasting your money.

The Ruby Gloom franchise that led to the television show was created by the American company Mighty Fine and sold through doeworld. Ruby Gloom began as a stationery line, featured on pencil cases and backpacks, eventually expanded to clothing, keychains, and plush toys. The character of Ruby Gloom is a small girl with bright red hair wearing a black dress with red and yellow striped socks. She has a pet cat named Doom Kitty, and she is described as "The Happiest Girl in the World." Ruby Gloom was originally aimed towards a gothic crowd but was later adapted for kids.

I love this show and find it more then suitable for my darling 
daughter who is more then into it. She will sit there as long as it
is on with her mouth wide open. There are 40 episodes and well 
worth the watch! Especially if your child is into shows and stuffed
animals such as this. 
My daughter has been raised with people who look and dress 
like the characters in this show so it comes first nature to her to 
like this show. She loves Monster high dolls, and the living dead dolls 
from hottopic!

RUBY GLOOM: worth the watch! Find it on Netflix if you have it, if you don't look it up.
