Cooper & Kid Review and Giveaway!

 My fiance works long hours which means he usually doesn't have time to take our daughter to school, or pick her up so to make up for that he enjoys spending one on one time with her. Sometimes regular crafts can get a little boring to a Kindergartner which is where Cooper & Kid comes it. Cooper & Kid is a company dedicated to making "Daddy & Me Craft kits" for fathers and their children. Each kit is packed full of hands on activities and information of the subject the crafts cover.





My daughter was recently sent a "How things fly" kit to work on with her father. When the kit arrived I got a few bowls of snacks together, some juice and the box and put it out on the kitchen table for them to interact with. I asked my fiance to take photos of what was in the box for the review and I must say he did a pretty good job getting photos of almost everything inside of the kit, he missed a few things but I will give him the break he isn't used to taking photos for reviews. I also asked him to write part of this review for my since this kit was for him and my daughter to review together.

"My daughter and I started by carefully cutting open the box, we agreed we would lay everything on the table and then decide what to do first from there. Once the box was open I let my daughter pull everything out it was the best to see her face light up every time she pulled something out of the box she could not believe how many things were stuffed into the medium sized box they sent. The sky lanterns she was extra excited about because it reminded her of the movie Tangled, and the rockets she liked because her brother could help us as well but they did not last long between two kids and a dog we did get a few days worth of playing out of them before the little foam pieces toward the end fell off. I had a great time doing the activities in this kit with my daughter it was a good combination of things for my daughter to do and things I needed to do. If my fiance bought more of these for us, I would not complain."

PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner will receive a "How Things Fly" Cooper & Kid Kit.

AOS Designs Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by AOS Designs for the review free of charge.****



Halloween is almost upon us, everyone is looking for what they want to dress as this year but is a costume really complete without accessories? Part of what makes a costume pop is the makeup and jewelry that goes along with it for example if your going as Maleficent why not wear a gorgeous ring inspired by her? I recently found a magical etsy shop called AOS Designs who sells Disney Villain & Princess Jewelry along with Pick A Pearl Cages.





I was immediately drawn to the Maleficent ring which is shown in the first photo above, it is absolutely gorgeous and suits her personality perfectly. Along with the Maleficent ring there are dozens of cute jewelry items such as the Rapunzel silver tiara princess ring, and all the Disney charms for the loose charm lockets. I was sent the four items above for my products review, the products arrived extremely fast and were well labeled and packaged. The items are the Maleficent ring, Maleficent movie cameo necklace, Alice in Wonderland flower ring and the Sleeping Beauty tiara ring. I do wish I would have provided my ring size before the items were sent as the rings only fit my pinky so when you order don't forget to include your ring size!





The jewelry is well made and sturdy you won't have to worry about these breaking if your hand happens to bump into something hard. The jewelry has small details that help complete the piece for example the flower ring has dots on the petals and small eyes to make the flower look just like the flowers in the movie. All of their jewelry ranges from $6 to $30 plus shipping and they ship world wide. Customer service was fast and friendly, if you are looking for something specific that is related to Disney I am sure they would be happy to help you find it. I think this store has tons of great items for the Disney lover in your life!

Degree VoxBox Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Influenster for the review free of charge.****



 I was recently sent a Degree VoxBox from Influenster which contained a Degree Deodorant with Motion sense in the scent fresh energy. It is a invisible solid deodorant and offers a 48 hour protection!



 

I do a lot of moving around during the day where I work and I am constantly around people so I need to know my deodorant will be there for me. The deodorant I was using prior worked well but it was also pricey I dreaded having to go buy another one anytime I ran out because my pocket was always sad at the check out. This deodorant works wonders and smells great I can hardly tell I am wearing it and I don't get any of those annoying white lines on my clothing if I need to change my shirt or if I forgot to put on my shirt before I put on my deodorant. The application is smooth and silky I highly enjoy this deodorant and I am glad I was picked to receive this VoxBox because this is now my go to deodorant. I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Starlight Wraps Review & Giveaway!

I generally don't wear a lot of jewelry I am very selective in what I will wear, but I've been wanting a bracelet for a while something that isn't too large, doesn't make noise and isn't going to catch on my clothing. While on my hunt for a new bracelet I found a company called Starlight Wraps who sells wrap bracelets in an assortment of colors. The company owner Rexann was kind enough to provide a little background on how her company came to be: " She is also the owner of a small clothing boutique in Estes Park, Colorado and in September of 2013 they were hit by a devastating flood and were virtually closed for almost 3 months.  She had always enjoyed jewelry design as a hobby prior, but with some extra time on her hands while the roads were being repaired in her city, she decided to create Starlight Wraps.  It has been a wonderful whirlwind for her since the beginning and she is so excited about the future of Starlight Wraps and hopes it continues to grow! Each piece in her collection is designed and handmade with great attention to detail.  Starlight Wraps is also dedicated to supporting various children's charities around the world by donating 20% of her net proceeds each year. They believe in striving to make a difference in the lives of children everywhere."





For my review I received a Stella wrap which is a gorgeous 3 Wrap Bracelet with black iridescent and dark purple beading. If you are indoors the purple beads appear more black but once you are out in the sunlight they shine a deep purple which looks quite beautiful. My bracelet arrived quickly and was sent in a cute draw string back which I will keep for future gifting. The bracelet seems like it could weight a bit however it feels almost weight less I sometimes forget I am wearing it, I typically don't sleep with it on because I don't want to risk it becoming lost in my sheets if it were to come off. Breakage wise I don't think it is likely it will break unless someone where to take a pair of scissors or a knife to your bracelet, My one and a half year old was trying his best to try and get the bracelet off my wrist and it didn't budge. It is easy to put on and take off with just one hand so you won't need anyone to assist you and it has three different lengths you can adjust it to depending on how tight you would like to wear it, I wear mine on the second loop. I have enjoyed working with Starlight Wraps and think you should head over to check out all of the beautiful wraps she has to offer.





Prize Alert:
One lucky winner will win the 5 wrap Cassiopeia, the retail value is $35 shown in the last image above.

Flytes of Fancy Review & Giveaway!

Who says pets can't celebrate the holiday too? There are a number of ways you can have your pet celebrate the holiday with you, one of those is Costumes! I recently found a very nice set of bat wings from a etsy shop called Flytes of Fancy.



The wings arrived in a very timely manner, Depending on where you live I would say the latest to order would probably be six days before Halloween to get them to you on time. The wings are well made they are padded to allow the maximum comfort to your dog or cat. I tried these wings on both my cat and my dog, my cat was a little timid and didn't know what to think but the wings stayed on even when he was running around the living room trying to get them off. My dog didn't mind them being on and was more calm about it, although I couldn't for the life of me get a non blurry photo of him in the wings even with treats as a bribe. 





The wings have a string which is similar to a shoe lace that runs through it, you put the neck loop around your dog (or cat) and then tie the string under their belly to keep it in place. The day I received the wings my toddler decided to take the string out, I couldn't figure out how to get it back in so I messaged the shop owner who replied quickly and helped me string it back through. I enjoyed working with Flytes of Fancy they had fast shipping, friendly and helpful customer service and high quality products for your pets. All costumes and costume pieces range from $11 to $25 plus shipping. Want to see what else they have to offer? Head over to their etsy shop to see what they have.

One lucky winner will receive a set of Bat Wings in a size appropriate for their pet.

LootCrate Setember Box Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by LootCrate  for the review &giveaway free of charge.****



One of my favorite things to look forward to every month is my LootCrate box! It is so exciting to wonder what might be in the next box, Maybe it will be a cute new funko pop? A DVD? A comic or maybe a creative new shirt. The theme for September was "Galactic" and revolved around a space theme.LootCrate is a gamer/geek themed subscription box that gets sent out once a month and contains over $25 of gamer/geek goods.





The box included a Star Trek Tribble plush which my son adores, When I opened the box I acted like it was alive and tossed it at him he thought it was hilarious. The next item I found was a Alien action figure with a moving tongue that you can push in or out and the tail is movable, which was followed by a mystery Science fiction vinyl figure, a package of pop rocks, a magnet, a monthly LootCrate pin, a digital code for the Halo comic series, Firefly money and a Han Solo poster! Who says that being grown up means you can't have fun? Every month I feel like a child again when I open my LootCrate because there is no telling what is going to be in it, my geek runs deep and I love a large majority of the products they send this month I loved all of the items sent and look forward to seeing this upcoming months LootCrate. The best part of this subscription box is that there is usually something for each member of my house to enjoy so instead of being for just one person it is a family occasion, both of my kids are always by my side when I open my monthly box and they get just as excited as I do.





I personally think that LootCrate would make a great gift for any comic, video game, or cartoon lover in your family. LootCrate ships to the US,Canada,The United Kingdom and Australia. Loot Crate is $13.37 a month [plus s&h] the site guarantees $30+ worth of goodies in your box You can sign up for just a one time box or you can sign up for 6 months to a years worth of boxes & you can use the code “LunaMoon10” you will receive 10% off of your purchase price. What do you think might be in Next months box?

Simona Candini Art Review & Giveaway!



****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Simona Candini Art for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

Halloween is just around the corner which means it is time to start decorating the outside of my house, as for the inside it is filled with dragons, gargoyles and other assorted items so everyday is a little like Halloween for us. Every year I look for fun new additions to add to our walls or Halloween decor and I wanted to share a etsy shop called Simona Candini Art who sells prints of hand drawn images that are a little spooky and some could even say inspired by Halloween. All of her prints have a slightly darker feel to them but are still quite adorable and would make great conversation pieces to hang in your home. I received the three prints shown below to review here on my blog and I will be giving one lucky winner a print!




The prints in order are called "Rapunzel", "Kiss Me" and "The Secret Garden" each print comes dated and signed by the Artist and only 50 prints are sold of each image so you will also find a #/50 located on the bottom of the print letting you know it is limited edition. Each print is vibrant with color and the work is flawless I find each image captivating in it's own way, and I do have to say that I noticed some of the images of the prints found in her shop don't do justice to how vibrant the photos are in person. Every piece of her art work is extremely detailed you could sit and look at it and see each strand of hair, every piece of grass and every shadow that matches perfectly with the imaged it is a shadow of. My favorite of the three I received is the Secret Garden print, I can't quite put a finger on why it stands out to me the most but I absolutely adore it and it is so unique I know it will be a wonderful conversation starter. I have to admit I felt a little silly, at first I thought the Rose vines were just a plant the little girl was sitting on then I realized they were the lower half of the girl in the chair which made this image even more captivating. The prints shipped all the way from Italy to Arizona in less than two weeks which is extremely impressive considering most international packages take anywhere from 3-10 weeks to receive depending on customs and how it was shipped.

The prints have a small white edge to make them easier to matte and frame, but you are also able to request that be removed so it fits a standard 8"x10" frame which may be a better option for some. Each print ranges from $30-$35 which is a wonderful price for unique and limited edition art work, I've seen my fair share of prices on various works on art that are mass produced and have to say I rather spend my $35 on a print from Simona Candini Art than on something you can buy from the store. Customer service is fast and friendly, if you have any questions or even a custom request I am sure the store owner and artist would be more than happy to help you out.

One lucky blog winner is going to win the Rapunzel print shown above! This giveaway is open World Wide.
