ELF Cosmetics GIVEAWAY & Review ENDED

I want to start off today's Giveaway/Review with a small quote from my DH which is as follows "You have too much Makeup,Why in the world do you need anymore?' I personally say you can never have too much makeup so when ELF cosmetics wanted me to review one of their kits & giveaway a starter kit I could not refuse & whats even better was I got to review a Modern Bride makeup kit which fits in perfect for the fist half of this weeks posts.[Today's will be the last wedding post I promise].

ELF cosmetics sent me a Modern Bride:Warm makeup kit to review & a Mini makeup collection kit to giveaway to one lucky winner.I love some of the items in my kit & I also have a bad time with some of the items in the kit,The two things I loved most in my kit was the 'Fire coral' nail polish which I applied to my Nails & Toes I loved it so much,& the 'Rustic brick' lip stick which I think is the perfect color for my skin tone in a way when I do my makeup I think i look more professional while I am wearing the lip stick.I also liked the pallet which helps reduce signs of blemished,dark under eye circles & More It worked really well.The two things I didn't like as much was the cream eye shadow but that is only because I don't like the feel of cream eye shadow on my eye lids it makes them feel heavy but the colors were nice,the other thing I didn't like was the pressed powder which was too dark for my face it just looked like I had a dirty face,I am a very pale person So i can't entirely blame this on the makeup,My kit also came with eye liner which was a nice shadow of brown for when i want a nice natural look to my makeup,& a set of fake eyelashes which I love wearing but tend to lose them or they end up getting Destroyed on accident when I am out.My favorite thing about ELF cosmetics is that their makeup is really well prices.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

A Spring Wedding Review

I hope you are all enjoying the reviews & giveaways I have presented you with so far & I am in no means close to being done with giveaways to share with all of you but everyone in a while I will be sharing just a review with you,& sometimes a giveaway from another site on the same day but Remember If you comment on the review it counts as an extra entry for future giveaways which will give you a better chance of winning.

Today I want to share with you a great Etsy shop I did a review for called A Spring Wedding where the store owner sells Hand made Wedding accessories & silk roses,She also runs Naughty Naughty where she sells super cute lingerie,& she runs Memphis Gypsy which is Hand made accessories such as Jewelry & scarves.I had a great time working with her for a review all of her shops are so cute she has something unique to offer you in every shop no matter what your looking for wedding items,everyday items or Lingerie she has it.I got the chance to review a cute little set from her Lingerie shop she has fast shipping which is good for the times when your running on a Schedule,she is very friendly & easy to work with & she has very reasonable prices for all of her items being handmade.Her clothing items are very comfortable & fit very well her items are professionally handmade they look store almost store bought but with care & love thrown in,She was even kind enough to throw in a free mesh bag which you need in order to wash them to keep the materials from getting ruined in the wash.I would definitely buy from her in the future & suggest her to my friends/family.You can see some of my favorite items from her here in my post she has some stunning items which are at a very low price which is great for couples getting married who have a low or strict budget. **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Blissfully Simple Wedding Planner Review

For the first few days of this week I would like to offer some great posts for anyone who is getting Married at anytime during this year,Why? Because I got invited to a huge Wedding Expo here in Sunny Arizona I am engaged but we haven't set an exact date but it will more than likely be on Halloween of next Year.I have not decided if I really do want to go to the expo or not,A plus is I get to go over how much everything costs & might win some free prizes like a wedding dress.I will get back to my normal reviews/giveaways in 1-2 days I have a big bundle of them for you coming up clothing,food,makeup,KIDS items & more.

Today I want to share with you a great website I found for buying a Wedding planner,Blissfully Simple Wedding Planning who makes easy to follow Wedding Planners which help relieve some of the stress because it offers helpful tips to make this experience more special for You.

A little information from The blissfully simple wedding planning site:

In my opinion:
For my review I got the Blissfully Simple Wedding Planning for real couples & a Brides made planner.I have began to read through this keep in mind with A DH,a DD,A blog[which is like another child to take care of haha] & a hectic life I have not been able to read all of it but from what I have read this book pretty much has Everything you can need for wedding planning.This handy planner comes with lots of lists you will need including 'Fill in' pages for you to write down prices of vendors,ect,Lists of what you typically need to buy for weddings,lists of which each member of the wedding party can help with,tips for the Groom & Bride.This planner isn't your everyday normal boring planning the author does throw in some cute remarks & makes you smile/laugh while reading through this it was a very relaxing read.I have found this very helpful & I look forward to using it to plan my wedding during next year.She even has a 'Talk to the Aurthur' area on her website in case you have any questions **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Kinektdesign Gears Ring GIVEAWAY & Review

Do you have a brother,father or Husband who is hard to shop for? My DH is the same way in some ways specially when it comes to Jewelry he wears but I found a great ring which is guy friendly.

I got the chance to work with kinektdesign on a review & a giveaway for One lucky winner.Kinektdesign has come out with a 'Gears ring' which is a ring that has little gears that actually move.

A little about the ring from the company:
The Gear Ring is fabricated using 316L, which is the highest quality surgical stainless steel in the jewelry market. Stainless steel has properties which make it highly durable and resistant to tarnishing,fading, scratching, and rusting. It will not bend or break and is hypoallergenic for those with metal allergies. Its available for both men and women.They offer a lifetime warranty that is automatically part of the original order.

In my Opinion:
The ring arrived in a great little ring box that was silver & black,Which I have been using to keep some of my rings in since the Gears ring is my DH's the ring its self is simply amazing & quite amusing the ring is a little 'bulky' for mine & my DH's taste but we like it none the less.The ring can keep you entertained for quite some time since the rims & gears really do move on this ring.We have had a large handful of friend come over since we got this ring & they all loved it or they wanted to play with it,I had a great time reviewing this product & think it would make a great gift for Fathers day or for a Wedding ring for your boyfriend/fiance.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Gary West Review

But please support this sponsor by reading this post & possibly leaving a comment.

I got a very special chance to work with Gary West Smoked Meats on a review,I was sent a Bouquet of beef jerky which came with a mixture of Traditional,Black pepper,Cajun,& Teriyaki beefy jerky sticks.When the package arrived at the house my DH was the one who answered the door upon finding out what was in the box he held the box hostage until he got it open & picked out which one he wanted first,My DH & I are both beef jerky lovers so this review was a big hit with the both of us,My favorite was the Teriyaki & my DH was the Cajun though I wasn't a huge fan of that in particular I had two bites & my mouth felt like it was on fire. I think that this Bouquet would be a perfect gift for any beef jerky lover & a perfect gift for Fathers day.I had a great experience with Gary West Smoked Meats.My Mother & Grandmother also loved the beef jerky they each picked a stick to try out their favorites are Traditional & Teriyaki needless to say all the jerky sticks were gone after a day of being in my kitchen between us & out visitors. Gary West offers much more than just Jerky sticks please have a look through their site.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Eco Lips GIVEAWAY & Review

Good morning everyone sorry for the little late blog post today my internet is out for the day but it will be back on in the evening.Summer is here which I am sure most of you can tell,Which means it is beach season & time for dry skin plus very chapped lips I have a great site today that I did a review for & who has offered to host a Giveaway so that one of you can win some moisturizing lip balm.

I recently had the delight of working with Eco Lips who has a wonderful line of lip balm & lip balm accessories such as their Lip care kits which comes with lip balm,Eco Leash,Eco Clip,Eco Lanyard,& Eco Key ring which help you keep your Lip balms attached to you at all times if your like me you own a dozen & a half lip balms but you tend to lose about half of those after a little while owning them.

Eco Lips sent me some wonderful lip balm I got three of my choice which were Grape,Kiwi-Strawberry,& Berry Berry Lemonade they also sent along Sweet Plum & Peppermint.From my personal experience I thought their lip balm felt very nice it didn't leave my lips feeling waxy or greasy like some of the lip balms I have tried,It didn't have a tart or bee wax taste either (I tend to lick my lips a lot).My favorite from what I was sent was the Kiwi-Strawberry it was wonderful it smells amazing & I love using it on my lips,My DH favorite was the Berry Berry Lemonade & my mother stole my Sweet plum because she loved the way it smelled & felt. ALL Eco lip products are not tested on animals they are all cruelty free.

Eco lips has an amazing line called The Cause Balm Program was designed to help non-profit organizations gain awareness and funding for a brighter future!For every lip balm sold through the Cause Balm Program,the corresponding organization will receive a $1 donation from Eco Lips.

Mineral makeup GIVEAWAY & Review

If you have been one of my blog readers for a while or know me personally you know one Major fact about me,I am CRAZY about makeup.I have tried tons of brands I am super picky about how the makeup feels on my face,how it applies,how bright the color is,really anything to do with makeup.Though I am a stay at home mom who doesn't get out much besides appointments & errand running I do enjoy wearing makeup almost every other day.

Today I would like to share with you a review that I did on Overall beauty,They are very pleasant to work with I enjoyed working with her to set up this Review & giveaway for all of my lovely blog followers.I got to pick out four colors that I liked,I picked out Heart Breaker,Pink Magic,Winter Night & Smoky Joe & she included a bonus color of her choice,When I got the package it was super adorable she puts her makeup in a cute fabric makeup bag(Included with Any order) made by,she also included an eye shadow brush.I was very excited to try out her makeup & the new eye shadow brush I got,besides the makeup itself I am also sadly picky about my brushes that I use to apply my makeup But this is good for all of you because you know that I am 110% Honest with you(Though I am 100% honest on all of the reviews I do). Her eye shadow containers are very easy to open,though one issue I always have with mineral makeup no matter what brand it is always gets every where After the first time i use it(because it is lose powder),The feel of the combination between the Mineral makeup & the eye shadow brush she sent felt silky smooth.The mineral makeup is so light you can hardly tell you are wearing it which is nice because some eye shadows feel like they are weighing your eye lid down,The colors of her makeup are nice they aren't as bright/bold like I normally like in eye shadow but they will be perfect for the days that I want a more modern/classy look.I think I have fallen in love with the makeup brush that was included in what she sent it felt so amazing & so smooth against my eye lid I love using it I almost want to do my makeup even when I don't need to just so I can use it.I had a very pleasant experience over all my favorite shade I got to try was Winter Night it was a nice dark color with lots of purple glitter,One of the things I would like to try next is Mineral Foundation I have not had the chance to try it yet but from the Mineral makeup collection I own i love it.Mineral makeup is a lot better & healthier for your skin then your everyday average store brand & most the time Mineral makeup is cheaper to buy.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Overall Beauty for the review & Giveaway**

Overall Beauty has also agreed to give ONE lucky winner a chance to get the following makeup Kit:

Piggy Paint Nailpolish GIVEAWAY & Review CLOSED

Lately I have found myself branching out from my normal Jet black nail polish only polish collection & have started to try out some different brands of nail polish last week I want to a beauty supply store & bought a bottle of nail polish for $4.99 because it looked great needless to say i spent $4.99 on a bottle of well crap,It started rubbing/peeling off only hours after I used it,I was about to give up all hope on finding bright bold nail polish that actually worked & then I found Piggy Paint

I got the pleasure of working with Piggy Paint putting together a Review & giveaway to share with all of my lovely blog followers(That's YOU!) I love providing you with products that you might love for yourself,child,family member or friend & I love offering you a chance to win some.

In their Words(Take from their site):
Piggy Paint is a natural, eco-friendly nail polish designed for fancy girls. Its non-toxic, hypoallergenic formula makes it safe to use on all piggies.Piggy Paint dries to a hard, durable finish that can easily be removed with our eco-friendly, low odor Piggy Paint nail polish remover. Both are made in the USA!

My Opinion on Piggy Paint:
I received a Hot pink called 'LOL' & A dark blue called 'The boyfriend blues' I love the colors that I was sent they look wonderful,Each bottle of Piggy Paint is bright & bold,they are also Smell free & NON toxic so you can use them on your toddler or young child,I got excited when I received these & automatically tried to paint my Daughters toes being at her age (17 Months) she didn't want to hold still when I finally got her big toe done(Which was the only one I managed to do) she started giggling at the site of it,I look forward to painting her toes again in the future once she finally sits still.I accidentally got some on the carpet but it was super easy to remove,The only small problems I have with it was that it took a while to dry over the clear coat of nail polish I already had on my fingers,Though I am sure that's from the clear nail polish not the Piggy Paint.A special promo of theirs I want to highlight A portion of their sales from the Breast Cancer Pail will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for Research!**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Dr. Hess Review & Giveaways CLOSED

Good Morning everyone before I jump into todays Review & Giveaway(s) I would like to take this time to Thank everyone who has become a blog follower.You may have noticed some slight changes to my blog,I have gone through & put together some links which contain information about my blog & a list of giveaways you may be interested in which can be found on the right hand side of my blog,I have made a section for 125 x 125 ad advertising & have made my own Blog Ad. Thank you.


Now let's get to today's Review & Giveaway Hosted by Dr. Hess a manufacturer of Skin care products,If you are like me you have tried so many lotions & ointments to cure dry skin that your about to give up on trying I thought the same thing until Polly Tribe the owner of Dr. Hess Udder Ointment generously agreed to let me host a Review & giveaway for my blog.

A little about the Company:
Dr. Hess was created in 1893 by Dr. Gilbert Hess who teamed up with a Ohio business man J.L. Clark who then named the company Hess & Clark Farm remedies.Dr. Hess was originally created for farmers across the US to help heal their Dairy cows utter when they became dried,soon reports of how the ointment also helped heal Dried,Cracked & Chapped hands of farms began flowing into the company,Since then Dr. Hess has been bought out several times but different owners,in 1999 Dr. Hess was discontinued completely news of this brought many pleading calls & letters from loyal customers wanting their beloved Udder Ointment back the company was riddled with testimonial of Udder ointment not only healing skin but also burns,bruises,diaper rash,chafing,eczema & more.Shortly after Tyler & Polly Tribe bought out the company & began manufacturing Dr. Hess once more they now offer Udder ointment,Baby butts for diaper rash & Udder stick for chapped lips.

My thoughts on Dr. Hess: For my Review I received 1 2oz jar of Udder Ointment for dry ski,1 2oz jar of Baby Butts for diaper rash & two Udder sticks for chapped lips.I was very happy to receive the package in the mail I got home & opened it right away the smell of the products are amazing they have a nice mint smell that is not over powering.I have been testing out their products for the last three days & even though it has only been three days I have seen a Major improvement in my skin summer is here so that means dry skin,My computer chair is sucking the life out of the side of my foot(I tend to sit on my left foot while on the computer) I have a small dry patch from where my foot sits on my computer chair most other lotions & ointments just barley helped after using the Udder ointment on it for the last few days it is already almost gone even my fiance has noticed the difference,He has also been using the 'Mango' Udder stick on his lips & loves it he told me that I better leave a 110% out of 100% positive feedback since he loves it as well.I tried the Baby butts on my daughter who has been getting diaper rashes frequently over the last few weeks I noticed the diaper rash was gone the morning after I used baby butts.I think the best part about this product is that you only have to use a Dime sized amount when you use it,A little goes a long way so even just a 2oz jar will last you a while.I do plan on buying a larger jar once my 2oz jar runs out,I suggest this product to anyone who has issues with Dry skin,chapped lips,or have children in diapers.
