LootCrate October 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  free of charge.****
Every month I look forward to seeing what is in that month's LootCrate because there is such a wide range of products that could be included that you could never guess what will be in it. Octobers LootCrate theme is 'Fear' and the products included revolve around being afraid. Normally the crates I receive I consider "family" crates because there is usually something that each of my kids likes and keeps along with things my husband and I like, but Octobers box is more of a "Me" box.







Octobers box included a 'Death by Kittens' shirt which featured a number of cat pictures positioned to look like a skull from further away and up close you can see all the cats a shirt which I think is fantastic and look forward to wearing. I do have to say if you are thinking about signing up for a LootCrate box their shirts run small so I would suggest putting the next size up as your shirt size. The October box also included A candy called "Toxic Waste" which is like a war head, a Sledgesaw Hammer Pen which is a small prop item from the game Dead Rising 3 which actually writes pretty well, A book called "How to survive a Sharknado and other unnatural disasters" that has a number of hilarious scenarios in it, A Walking Dead comic and a art print, Some temp tattoos, a game code and Octobers LootCrate collectable Pin. The monthly letter they sent with Octobers box was in 3D so they sent a pair of 3D glasses with the box which my kids thought was awesome.





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?


GlassDharma 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 Glass Dharma for the review & giveaway free of charge.****


My fiance has sensitive teeth and it gives him a little bit of a painful sensation when ice touches his teeth so he uses a straw in his cup. Yes, he could skip on the ice but then it makes you drink get warmer faster. Myself and our kids also enjoy using straws and we use a ton of disposable straws that I buy in bulk from the store so I wanted to look for a better and cheaper alternative. That alternative? GlassDharma who sells glass straws in a variety of lengths, sizes and colors. "Since March of 2007 GlassDharma has been producing glass drinking straws. The  GlassDharma mission is to create world-wide awareness about single use plastics and how damaging plastic straws are to our environment. Glass Straws provide an alternative that eliminates the need for straws made from plastic."



 

We were sent four straws for review as you can see above only three survived unfortunately my daughter tried using one with a cup that was far too small for the straw and the weight of it caused the straw to fall out and it broke. Aside from the one incident we haven't had any issues with the straws if you make sure to use a cup that is the appropriate length for the straw you will be perfectly fine. We were sent a decorative dots straw, the simple elegance extra long drinking straw, a beautiful bends straw and one simple elegance eight inch length straw and a straw cleaner. It is so nice not having to throw away a handful of plastic straws and their wrappers every day because now I not only get to save money but I am helping the environment by producing less waste. The straws are easy to clean, dry quickly and they are wonderful to use they even sell straws with a wider neck to make drinking milk shakes easier. I find they also help keep the drink cooler on the way up, I personally love these straws and look forward to buying a few more.

Prize Alert:
One lucky winner is going to win a $25 gift code to GlassDharma.

Cooper & Kid Review and 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 Cooper & Kid for the review & giveaway free of charge.****


 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."

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!

****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 Starlight Wraps for the review & giveaway free of charge.****



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.

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