Powered by Mom Blog brings you a Newair AI-215R Portable Ice Maker Review

air and water ice maker 1

Powered by Mom Blog recently received the Newair AI-215R Portable Ice Maker to review from this summer. We had the ideal event to test out this portable ice maker as we had our annual summer barbeque with our close friends and family so we had about 20 people here in total. Let me begin by saying that it was extremely easy to set up and use, there’s not much you have to do to get this ice maker up and running. Don’t look too closely but you can see my reflection in the ice maker as I’m taking the picture or at least a reflection of my slippers lol [Read more...]


Parenting 101 Tips and Giveaway

Parenting 101 Tips and Giveaway open to Canada Only ends 8/31

Parenting 101 giveaway

I have to admit before my daughter was born I wasn’t even sure I ever wanted to be a mom. The thought of being totally responsible for another human being was almost horrifying, what if I messed up and totally warped them? Well almost 13 years later with my daughter’s 13th birthday fast approaching this September I’m happy to say I have not warped her mind (I think lol), she’s a wonderful girl and now I can’t imagine not being her mom.

This is my daughter when she was a newborn ahhh the memories

Thankfully for me I had family and friends I could turn to for support and sometimes just to listen when I had those mommy moments where I was sure I was going to lose my mind or make some horrible mistake. I think those of us who have such a support network are lucky and if you don’t have one believe me you can create such a network. I thought it would be wonderful to share some of those Parenting 101 tips that were shared with me, ones I’ve learned on my own and an opportunity for our community to share as well!  [Read more...]


Calendar Key Necklace with Swarovski Crystal Review

Powered by Mom shares her Calendar Key Necklace with Swarovski Crystal from Any Old Day Jewelry Review

I must admit that I have a preference for giving and receiving gifts that are personalized. Whether it’s been a handmade card, a macaroni necklace from my daughter or something with my name on it I just love it. I feel it goes to show that the the person who gave it put some thought behind the gift and/or made it with love. Now don’t get me wrong I don’t think that means that other gifts aren’t special as I know all my family and friends give with love and they’re all special but I do have a weakness if you will for those personalized gifts.
