Nutty Guys Online the place for all of the nuts you would ever want. Great discount inside.




 Are you a nut lover? I think they make a great snack and nuts work well sweet and salty. If you love nuts, boy do I have a great place to tell you about, The Nutty Guys Online here is a little more information about the company from the website:

We Provide the best quality Nuts, Dried fruits and Candies while delivering 100% customers satisfaction. Nutty Guys wants everyone to be as nutty about nuts as we are. Not only are nuts delicious, but research shows that NUTS ARE GOOD FOR YOU!

We provide the highest quality nuts at the best prices around. We are so excited about providing the best quality nuts that we even pay the shipping on sales over $50 (only in the continental US - 48 States). Please take a few minutes, place an order, and get as nutty as we are.

My family and I were very fortunate to be able to review a  7 nut compartment tray from The Nutty Guys Online:

This included:  Roasted Salted Whole Almonds, Butter Toffee Mixed Nuts, Roasted Salted Whole Cashews, Honey Roasted Peanuts, Roasted Salted in shell Pistachios, Deluxe Mixed Nuts, Honey Cinnamon Almonds.
 
This review is nuts…literally! We received a box of nuts from Nutty Guys Online and nuts are always a big hit in our house and these nuts are really good. With the 7 compartment tray assortment you get a nut for all of your moods, salty, sweet, salty/sweet they’re all there and they’re all good.

The 7 tray assortment is perfect for either situation and the nuts themselves are top notch. And there is something really funny watching our daughters little fingers crack open a pistachio like a champ, she can shell pistachios with the best of them! And like I said no matter what you’re in the mood for there is a nut that will satisfy your taste buds.

CookiesKids.com a great place to purchase clothing for the Fall for your kids #CookiesKids #CBias #SocialFabric


It is back to school time! Time to shop for some great bag to school fashion for the kids. Do your children wear uniforms, or are they free to wear whatever they choose? Well I have a great suggestion for you all, a company that has School Uniforms and cute children’s clothes at great prices, CookiesKids, and here is a little more information about the company who turned 40 years old this year.

In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children's clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on its way.

As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.

By the late 1990's there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie's Kids. Also in the late '90s came an important addition to Cookie's Kids' inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding CookiesKids.com in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie's Kids Inventory.





Well it is that time again clothing for the Fall for your kids, are the clothes in your children’s closets older? Are they in need of some new outfits to start the new school year? Looking for some new Fall Fashion? Well I know my daughter could use a little boost, most of her closet is hand me downs and I think she deserves to choose some of her clothing this school year.  






  As a working mom my life can be hectic, and I need clothes that are comfortable for my daughter to wear, it is important that she dresses herself. And when she has uncomfortable/constrictive clothing, it is such a hassle to get her ready in the morning. And I cannot spare the time in the morning for any hassle. Since I have to be in work at the crack of dawn (well it may not be that early, it sure feels like it is) my daughter and I have to work together, I get dressed while she gets dressed.

And believe it or not, this works out just fine most of the time. The issue I may have in the morning is when my daughter does not want to wear the outfit I laid out for her, her clothes must be comfortable. And recently she has become a little fashionista, so no more ratty comfortable sweat suits for her. I was fortunate to be able to try a great kids clothing company. My daughter scoured the site, and loved so many of the cute outfits! I was amazed with the great selection on the site they have uniforms, everyday clothing, dress up clothing, shoes and accessories. For girls boys, toddlers and infants.  The prices are very affordable and as a mom who loves a great bargain, I loved this site.


When shopping for clothing for my daughter I always look for soft versatile clothing that she will love.  I had $30 to spend, and where else can you say you can get a few outfits and a jacket for $30.00 shipped? Well I can say, at CookiesKids.com you can get some really cute outfits that have great Kids Style and more for less than $30.00 shipped! It is true, you can check out my cart to see:

Cherry Stix “Amble” Sweater Dress (Sizes 7 – 16)
Chances R Basic Stretch Leggings (Sizes 7 – 16)
Dream Star “Sequin Stripe” Top (Sizes 7 – 16)
Mad Game Basic Hoodie (Heather Gray)

My daughter is a dress lover, but she is also a bit of a tom boy and loves to run and jump and make a mess, and that does not really go with wearing a dress. So I love to pair dressed with leggings. And here in the northeast it gets pretty cold sometimes even in the fall so the leggings also keep her warmer. 

I loved the look of the Cherry Stix “Amble” Sweater Dress, and since purple is my daughters favorite color we went with the grey and purple striped dress. This dress also comes in blue,pink, black and white versions. This  would be great to wear as a dress, or you can pair it with leggings for a warmer and school friendly look.  The Chances R Basic Stretch Leggings, are a great fit, they are stretchy and comfortable. And best of all they go with pretty much anything so they are a must for any bank to school wardrobe.

Dream Star “Sequin Stripe” Top, this top has a great dazzling factor. My daughter is into the bling these days, and she loves this top. I love that it is made well, and it is very soft. I do not have to worry about the “sparkle” falling off of this top with one wear. This top will stay sparking for a good long time.
 
Mad Game Basic Hoodie, this is a very soft and warm hoodie that my daughter can wear as a jacket or just as an accessory to her outfit. I signed up for the emails from the company, and I got a great coupon right away. Don’t you just love when a coupon arrives before you check out, and it is a coupon you can actually use? Well I love it! I received a coupon code for a free Hoodie with any purchase, what a great bonus.

My daughter just loves her new clothes and is looking forward to wearing them in her new school this year, Gasp! My daughter looking forward to school, now this is a nice change of pace.

I was able to wash and dry each of the items I received from Cookieskids.com and I had no issues with any item. No shrinkage or fading because these are quality items. Just because they are inexpensive does not mean that they are “cheap junky clothing that will fall apart” you really get your money’s worth at Cookies Kids. I love that the clothing is comfortable, easy on and easy off making my mornings so much easier. I know I will be back to shop some more very soon with the holidays right around the corner I loved the dress selection and I will be picking up at least one for my daughter.

If you are looking for a great place to purchase Kids Fashion Fall items such as Denim, Shoes, Hoodies, Long Sleeve T's etc.The shipping is only $5.00 no matter what you purchase, you will get this low shipping rate.   CookiesKids.com is not only online but they have 7 stores in the NYC area in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Jamaica. I have never visited a brick and mortar Cookies Kids store, but we love to visit NYC, it is only about a 2 hour drive from my house and we love to make day trips there. I will surely be planning to visit a Cookies Kids store on our next trip.
