Le Gusto Premium Kitchen Shears Product Review

I received the Le Gusto Premium Kitchen Shears at a discount. The links in the post are my affiliate Amazon link EXCEPT the link at the end. My kitchen scissors end up in my kids’ rooms so I was pretty stoked to receive these. I like using them to cut chicken. Me and knives don’t always make the best combination.

These scissors come in a plastic sleeve. There’s also a plastic cover over the blades. Fancy. The blades are stainless steel, and they’re super sharp. There’s also a bottle opener on the blades. You can use the babies to cut poultry, snip herbs, cut the roots off of vegetables, crack nuts, open bottles and more! These are the nicest kitchen shears I’ve ever owned.

They cost $11.95 on Amazon. These would make an excellent addition to any kitchen, or they’d make a great gift. Christmas is coming up so everything will make a great gift! 🙂

I also did a video review. I turned my camera during the review, so you’ll have to turn your head sideways, ha. Otherwise, I get the point across. I’m still really new to video reviews, and I’m still learning. Enjoy!



Nature’s Blossom Bonsai Tree Seed Starter Kit Product Review

I received this kit at a discount in exchange for my review. I just got it in the mail a few days ago, but the review is due fairly quickly so I haven’t had a chance to actually GROW anything yet. When I do, I’ll make sure to post pics of my little bonsai trees’ progress.


The Nature’s Blossom Bansai Tree Seed Starter Kit comes with organic seeds to grow four types of Bonsai trees, four biodegradable pots, 4 compressed soil pucks, and 4 of the little plant markers so you can remember which tree is which.

The types of tree you can grow are:

  • Jacaranda Mimosifolia- Purple Leaves
  • Pinus Aristata- Needle Leaves
  • Delonix Regia- Bright, colorful flowers
  • Picea Mariana- Black Spruce

The seeds are ready for sowing. This makes for a great indoor plant. These kits are 100% organic and 100% non-GMO.


I also learned Bon-Sai is the art of growing ornamental, artificially dwarfed trees or shrubs. I just thought they were naturally tiny little trees. I had a bonsai tree a few years ago, and I killed it. I didn’t do it on purpose, but I’m lacking a green thumb. The only other bonsai tree I’ve ever heard of is Mr. Miyagi’s. So, growing these babies will be interesting.


You can find these kits here on Amazon. This is not my affiliate link. However, this link is here! 😉 The awesome thing about this kit is that Nature’s Blossom provides a 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee! Love it, or you get your money back. There’s nothing to lose!

Genevieve Avani Lifestyles Sippy Cup Review


My first review as A Texas Mom. Exciting. I did receive this product at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion. I was able to scoop up my Premium Hygienic Kid’s Straw Water Bottle/Sippy cup off of Amazon. It’s $9.99. I’m a Prime member (admittedly an addict) so shipping was free.

This Genevieve Avani sippy is BPA Free, anti-mold, leak proof when spout is closed, and it comes with this really cool little stainless steel cleaning brush to clean the straw. I don’t know about ya’ll, but my son has left milk in his sippies then lost them or left them out overnight. GROSS. I’m so glad they have thought to include a cleaner for the straw so you don’t have to toss the whole cup because you can’t clean the straw.

My son really likes this cup. He is able to open and close the spout by himself. He is also able to hold the cup comfortably. It says it’s good for children ages 3-5. I can see where it’s a really good cup to grow into. It holds 12 ounces of liquid. That’s a lot of milk!

I’m really excited that we now have a sippy that’s durable, doesn’t leak and hopefully will be able to withstand the wrath of Bman!

If you’re interested, you can find the cup here or here. ALSO, they have a free 2 year extended warranty available. If at any time you’re not satisfied for any reason, just let them know. They have a money back guarantee!
