BelleDangle GIVEAWAY & Review

Being a girl typically means having a lot of Jewelry & Makeup which also means most of your bathroom counter space & dresser space is covered in either scattered makeup or jewelry so its nice to have organizers to keep everything nice & neat.I have been wanting to find a rack that is both helpful & multifunctional but was having a hard time finding things that weren't just an earring rack,a ring holder in the shade of a hand or a jewelry tree to me those take up space that could be used for something else but then I found a neat item called a BelleDangles.

What's a BelleDangles? BelleDangles is a jewelry organizer that displays and organizes all of your jewelry and accessories making your collection easy to find, untangled and clutter free. The BelleDangles 'Classic' Jewelry Organizer holds over 110 pieces of jewelry tangle-free plus other girlie accessories like hats, scarves and handbags!For my Review I received a Black BelleDangles,Not only does it have a bar for your necklaces,Four bars that come out for bracelets,rings,ect but it also has small slots for earrings & A shelf to keep things on so that it isn't just another organizer taking up needed room.I hung mine in my bedroom I wish I would have waited for my DH to get home to put it up because I had slight problems hanging it myself mainly with holding it up trying to screw it into the wall,Once I had it all hung up I began to put all my jewelry on it at which point I realized I don't have as much jewelry as I thought.I really like the top shelf this was the main reason I wanted to receive a BelleDangles,I am able to keep a few decorations on it a picture frame with my daughters photo & my glasses on it for safe keeping.It takes up just the right amount of space without looking bulky I have received many compliments on how nice it looks & many of my friends have asked where I got it from.For the time being Belle Dangles only come in Black but they will have more colors available over the next year so that you will be able to match one to your wall.Above you can see a photo of the BelleDangles borrowed from the BelleDangles site & below you can see the BelleDangles on my wall.

BelleDangles has agreed to give one Lucky winner their own BelleDangle.


LittlekidsInc Review

Like most children my daughter absolutely loves Bubbles she isn't old enough to blow them herself so my DH & I blow them for her but sometimes if you do too much it will make you light headed I know in my case that is how it happens so sometimes automatic bubble blowers are amazing.

Recently I got the chance to do a review for a company called LittleKidsInc I was sent a box with some Bubble Fun in it.Some of the things I received to review are: The Original No spill tumbler, No spill mini bubble bucket,Big bubble friends in the shape of a cow,Bubble light,Bubble doods,a Jelly belly scented bubble jar,Junk ball baseball set,Bubble vehicle,Adventure wands & a Big bubble wand.My daughter went nuts when she seen this package she either tried tearing open the packages or chewing the packages open there was no stopping her once she got a hold of them,I was most excited to try out the large cow bubble blower it makes nice big bubbles in a stream of 2-8 bubbles at a time each time you place the head back down it makes a 'MOOOO' sound unfortunately my daughter is afraid of the loud mooing sound so she doesn't like the cow as much as I thought but she will learn to love it.I was sad to find out that the Nickelodeon bubble vehicle did not work I used brand new batteries & followed the instructions correctly but all it did was make a loud funny noise & the bubble mixture splattered everywhere but that is the only problem I had with the bubble products.I really like the Original no spill tumbler it has three bubble wands so my DH & I can both use it at the same time,The bubbles are great sometimes depending on the brand i buy some bubble mixtures aren't the best & hardly make bubbles at all they just make your bubble wand icky but the bubble mixture that they sent is amazing I don't think a bubble wand I own has ever made that many bubbles at once.The Jelly Belly scented bubbles smell just like grape jelly beans they smell so good you almost want to eat them.I also really like the bubble light its fun to use in a dark room [well almost completely dark room you still need to see where to dip the bubble wand].I had a fun time working with LittlekidsInc & so did my daughter she loves all of her bubble toys & plays with them almost daily.Best of all everything is affordable & can be bought at stores such as Walmart & Target prices range from $5-$20 **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Pure Pearls GIVEAWAY & Review

Yesterday was the first time it has rained in quite some time there was about ten minutes of rain but just enough to create some puddles,My daughter has never really been in the rain there was once or two when I had her completely covered to run out to the car but that was it so I threw on a jacket & her rain boots & we went outside to play she had a blast I am glad I have a pair of Rain boots for her from Kidorable.From the pictures I took of her I can just tell how long her hair has been getting.This is my daughter looking at her Reflection in a puddle:

Since I wanted to share about yesterday why not post a review & giveaway that involves water? One of the things that is most valuable that can be found in the sea are Pearls,For years women have been wearing pearl bracelets,earrings & necklaces which doesn't seem to be a slowing fashion you may not see them as often you might see faux pearls frequently but there are still many who love wearing or having pearls.I recently received an amazing chance to work with a company called Pure Pearls on a Review & A Giveaway.For my review I received a Freshwater pearl bracelets in black,The bracelet arrived much faster than I had expected it to it actually surprised me when I opened it & saw what it was.The bracelet is very well put together at first I wasn't 100% sure how much I would like the clasp they have attached to the bracelet but it is surprisingly easy to get on by myself without having to ask anyone for help & the clasp has small holes so you can adjust the length of your bracelet a little.I love the colors of the pearls its not a plain dull black & its not shiny it is treated so it is Tantalizing shades of iridescent copper, blue, purple, green and more it is more dramatic and a pleasure to wear. Each strand of 7.0-8.0mm treated black freshwater pearls is hand-selected for their superior shapes and bright luster. Each bracelet measures a standard 7.5-inches, but can be customized to fit any wrist.Each bracelet comes in a gorgeous black satin lined bracelet box which I thought was neat besides my class ring none of my jewelry has ever come in a snap shut box they are usually cardboard [Card stock I am not sure what jewelry boxes are made from].The company was very friendly & easy to work with they have great customer service & great prices each piece comes with a price appraisal.**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 Pure Pearls for the Review & Giveaway**

Beauty Scoops Review

I recently got to review a very interesting product called Beauty Scoop it is a Powder that you pour into your drink that helps your Skin,Hair & Nails.Here is a little information about them from their site "This unique, edible beauty accessory, created by prominent NYC celebrity plastic surgeon, Dr. Michelle Yagoda, and world renowned chemist and inventor, Dr. Eugene Gans, is rich in peptides and lipids - the extra-nourishing building blocks your body needs to boost its own regenerative powers.Unlike topical products that stop working when you wash them off, BeautyScoop® works from within. As a pure powder that you mix into any beverage, it is immediately absorb able for maximum benefits and long-lasting results.Just one delicious daily dose, can give you youthful, radiant skin; shiny, lustrous hair; and gorgeous, healthy nails in just three weeks! Maintain your results with as little as one packet every 2-3 days. Join others already in the know."

For my Review I was sent Three samples I have to admit I was hesitant to try it,I thought something that is supposed to be helpful for all three areas of your body could not taste that great.I honestly didn't try it until today I didn't mix mine with anything special I just mixed it with a bottle of water it didn't taste as bad as I thought its just a normal vanilla taste which if your not huge on drinking water you could make a smoothie with some vanilla yogurt & you would not be able to tell you mixed anything in with it.I don't know how much it will help your hair,nails & skin but from reading the packaging there are a lot of helpful nutrients on the package,The only negative thing about this product is that if your wanting to give it a try you have to have the money to give it a try each box ranges from $60-$220 & samples are $10 a pop.It taste good so if your willing to give it a try I say go for it.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

I always love getting to sit down & either create something neat by myself or with a family member.I recently received a wonderful chance to work with a site called Sock Monkey Fun their name gives it all away,Yep you guessed it they sell lots of Sock Monkeys & Sock Monkey accessories.For my review I revived a deluxe Sock Monkey kit to create my own monkey.I have to admit right away that I am not very good at sewing I can stitch tiny holes in shirts & that about covers my sewing abilities so I called in reinforcements to help me create the sock monkey,Who was my reinforcement? My Grandmother came over to help me create my Monkey [Well she cut,& stitched I just stuffed the body parts] The instructions were simple & easy to follow everything is laid out in a photo on the instructions paper letting you know what parts of the sock are the body parts for the Monkey it even had a cute little hat! I was afraid to stuff the monkey too much so I put what I thought was enough it turns out it wasn't so I have a very thin sock monkey he is goofy but I like him.The monkey took a little less than an hour & a half to complete.Each kit comes with two socks,stuffing,eyes,a ball for the hat,a needle,& string plus a birth certificate for your Monkey.I thought the kit was fun to use & very cute it would make a perfect birthday present for a young girl to use with her mother or grandmother.I don't have any Negative things to say about this product because I didn't find anything I didn't like.You can see a Sock Monkey above that is made by Sock Monkey fun & you can see the Sock Monkey my grandmother & I created below yes he is goofy.

Organix Review

One of the things I try to take care of most now that I am older is my Hair, After years of shamelessly dying my hair & not really caring about the brand I used I finally decided I need to start using healthy hair products to keep my hair looking healthy & soft.I like testing out new shampoos/conditioners to see which fits my hair the best but sometimes they are so expensive that it isn't worth it so I was happy to get a chance to work with Organix on a review.

For my Review I received one Bottle of Vanilla silk shampoo & Vanilla silk Conditioner to test out to be honest when it arrived & I took one smell of it I deiced it smelled so good that I didn't want my DH to use it I wanted to be greedy & use it all haha,I tried hiding it under the sink after I used it but my DH checked around under the sink [Even though there were other open bottles] just to find the bottles I hid he likes the smell as well we both really enjoyed this shampoo & conditioner It made our hair really soft & it smells really good so then your house smells good as well.I just wish the bottles were bigger,but with the size & shape that they come in it makes it easy to hold while you are in the shower.I am going to try to find this product the next time I go to the store so i can start buying it more for my family.What is your favorite brand of Shampoo/Conditioner? **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

BonitaJ GIVEAWAY & Review

My Jewelry collection is very small so I always love getting new Jewelry either buying it myself or being gifted something by someone else.When I was younger I didn't like wearing any Jewelry I still don't wear it as often but I do like wearing earrings & a necklace most of the time [Plus my engagement ring] so needless to say I like unique jewelry pieces being added to my collection.Recently I got to work with a small handmade crafter & her store called BonitaJ on a review & a Giveaway she sells Bridal Jewelry, Bridesmaid Jewelry & Flower girl Jewelry.

For My review I received a Diamond Crystal Illusion Bridal Necklace,The shipping speed was great & I loved the packaging that this necklace came in it was in an adorable white swirl jewelry box with white fluffy padding.The necklace looks great the Fire Opal Crystals look better than I expected them to look,I love the red/orange mixture that the crystal gives off though I was hoping the black diamond crystals would be a little darker though the Grey/fire opal combo looks great still! I love the fact that the Crystals look like they are 'floating' on your neck since clear wire is used while making the necklace.The necklace is a nice 16" in length & has a loop clasp which makes it easy to put on & take off the necklace.BonitaJ also offers bracelets,& earrings they also offer pearls if you do not like crystals or you can get a mixture of both.Get sets for you,your brides maids or your flower girl they will cherish it forever & at affordable prices as well it will be a site you will love.I am happy to say I will be wearing this necklace to my wedding when ever that day may be.I had a great time working with the owner & creator she is very friendly & easy to work with she helps you figure out every detail of what You want for your jewelery.**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 BonitaJ for the Review & Giveaway**

One lucky winner will also receive a Diamond Crystal Illusion Bridal Necklace with their choice of Two colors for the necklace. Sorry but US & Canada only! [I will have more jewelry giveaways for world wide soon]


CSN Review

I wanted to Thank everyone who has Entered my $60 Goodie Bag giveaway put together by Myself with some of my favorite things including makeup,jewelry & more.I am happy to announce I will be having another Goodie bag stuffed full of goods for you to win on August 7th or 8th.Want Entries EARLY?

I know your going to love what is in next months goodie bag.

Summer is slowly winding down,school is starting soon & the weather will start to get cooler over the next two to three months so that means everyone is planning lots of last minute summer fun.My Family & I included,What is a better way to end the summer than with a Big BBQ with lots of friends & family?Some of you may remember the review I did on the American Plastic Toys Home style Kitchen,I had a wonderful time receiving the chance from CSN to work with them,Recently I have a wonderful opportunity to work with them for an end of summer review.For my review I received a 18 Piece Tool Set with Knives in Plastic Case.It arrived perfectly on time,Everything was packaged nicely the set might have been tossed around in shipping because part of the set were popped out of their spaces but everything made it here in one piece.My DH loves this set we have only been able to use the steak knives so far but plan on using this set a lot because we love to BBQ & have our friends over.Everything is made with Stainless steel & very all the tools are a nice size the spatula is huge it is a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be.I was very happy to see that it came with Corn on the Cob 'holders' because it makes eating corn on the cob less of a mess than eating it with your hands only.I like the case that everything comes in it is a nice size to hold everything but still slide under your grill or into a closet.The case has slide closures which I find are easy to open & close even with something in one of your hands.The best part of all is CSN has a ton of really nice BBQ & Grill sets heck even Grills on sale for amazing prices starting at just $25 but that isn't all they offer CSN has OVER 200 stores! that carry toys,clothing,accessories,house goods,yard goods & More there is something for everyone.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

FroliCat GIVEAWAY & Review

I am very happy to bring you my very first review & giveaway for your Fur Babies (Cats possibly some dogs) I recently got the chance to do a review for Frolicat.For the review I received their BOLT here is a little information on it from their site "FroliCat™ BOLT™ is an interactive laser toy that provides hours of fun for you and your feline friends. Hold BOLT in your hand or place it on a flat surface and watch your cat pounce, chase and bat at the exciting laser patterns."

My Experience: After reading mixed reviews about this product I decided to give it a try,When it arrived I was very happy to see that it came with batteries included which I loved because I always hate when you buy a new toy,or game that doesn't come with batteries & you just happen to be out of them yourself.The BOLT is a little bit too noisy for my tastes but you get used to the sound its not as big of a deal.The BOLT works wonderfully if you place it on a table or on the floor it will move around letting your cat chase after it to seem more life like it will stop her & there for a few seconds like a normal fly or bug would then it starts moving again the only thing I did note is that sometimes it moves up too high for a cat to reach unless they were to knock over some of your possessions to get there unfortunately enough we don't have very much in our dining room so that is where my cats 'area' is & that's why I set up the BOLT .I enjoy the speed that it moves because its not too fast that your cat can't see where it is & not slow enough that your cat doesn't have interest in it,You can also use the BOLT hand held which I enjoy as well because I can get a bigger area with the BOLT than just by placing it on the table.My toddler also enjoys watching my cat chase after it she gets lots of laughs from watching our black cat Pantera run all over the house.Many of our friends like it as well & want one for their own pets.I am sure you could use this product for a dog as well. **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 FroliCat for the Review & Giveaway**

Frolicat Has also agreed to give one lucky winner a BOLT of their own.
Sorry but US winners only to the 48 contiguous states.


Himalayan Salt Shop Review

One of the things I like looking for when it comes to Decor & Decorations for my home are things that have more than one Purpose,but they aren't always the easiest to find when your looking for something Unique,So when I was offered a chance to work with The Himalayan Salt Shop I automatically agreed. The Himalayan Salt Shop sells Salt Lamps,Lamp accessories,Candle holders & bath salts.

For My review I received a 4 Pound Himalayan Salt Lamp.Here is a little information about their Salt Lamps Straight from their site These lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content Heat from the bulb (in our lamps) or flame (in our candle holders) causes the salt to emit negative ions These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products Concisely, these products cleanse the air naturally and are extremely beautiful." The Lamp came well packaged to make sure nothing was broken in shipping,I was very happy with how easy it was to install the light bulb,I also love the base that is attached to the Salt rock itself it is a very nice dark wood.At first I wasn't sure how much light would actually Emmit from a hunk of salt but I was very surprised to see it does make a very nice desk lamp .When the Lamp is on it gives off a gorgeous Orange/Red color from the salt.I did notice a small difference in the air in my home while this was on it helped my nose become un-stuffy.I think this product is perfect for anyone who likes Unique home decor & for Rock lovers.The Himalayan Salt Shop has the same Lamp I received on sale right now for only $20 that's a price that can't be beat.**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 The Himalayan Salt Shop for the Review**

Streekers GIVEAWAY & Review

When I was in Middle School I used to love dying my Hair black & when I was in High school I dyed it almost every color of the rainbow while it was fun while it lasted it had a huge effect of my hair it made it thin out so needless to say I don't dye my hair anymore plus who is going to hire someone with bright blue hair? So every once in a while if I am going to a BBQ or party such as the 4th of July it is fun to put Non permanent hair coloring in my hair for the day but not all dyes are the same.

Recently for a Review & Giveaway I received the chance to work with a company called Streekers who sells temporary hair color.Here is a little bit of information from their website "Streekers is true temporary hair color with a difference. Instant. Liquid. Washes out when you want it out. Not a mascara, not a crayon, not a paint. But a cool new hair color that uses innovative technology. In 8 vibrant colors: pink, blue, ultra violet, red, green, yellow, orange, purple.Streekers shades are vivid on blonds and blonde streaks and show as subtle highlights on darker hair."For my review I received Blue,Red & Purple, I have had a half good half bad experience with this product I always hate having to write negative things in my reviews but It is my job to provide all of my readers (You) with the truth about each product I review,The information they have on their site about the Streekers working on lighter hair is true I noticed that on my hair (Carmel brown/Dark brown) that it didn't show up as well as it does on my Blonde high lights you can still see the streekers on dark hair but definitely not as well.I really like the way the colors turn out once it dries on your hair & it is easy to brush/comb through after it dries without tangling or the color flaking off. I did have some issues with it staying in my Hair I notice if it was touched right after you wash your hands it will come off onto your hands,or if it gets slightly wet from a mister,ect it will start to run I noticed that If i didn't wash out my hair right away when I got in the shower the color would run & stain my skin a little my DH also noticed that after wearing it for a day the color transferred onto my neck.I have found it best to use Streekers while your hair is up in a Pony tail or Buns,I have been using mine when I wear my pony tail & it works out perfectly fine.**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 Streekers for the Review & Giveaway**

One Lucky winner will received Three streekers in their choice of Colors.


Prima Princessa Review

When I was a little girl I never went through a stage where I wanted to be a Ballerina though most of my friends did,I always wanted to be a Vet/owner of my own rescue shelter [Which I still want],Now that I am older & have a daughter[2] as well as two young sister in laws[13 & 4] plus a Niece[6] I have been watching more movies about ballerinas,buying Tutu's & other ballerina accessories I must admit I am still not a huge fan of the ballet but sometimes its not half bad to watch.

I recently did a review on a company called Prima Princessa.Prima Princessa is a company that puts together Ballet movies for little girls each video is narrated by Prima Princessa herself.Who is Prima Princessa? She is a small fairy dressed in a Ballerina outfit I think she is adorable & perfect for kids between the age of 2-8 to watch.I received their Swan Lake DVD to watch & review with my daughter.I think my daughter may be a little too young for ballet because it didn't seem to catch her attention but she does love dressing in a Tutu & running around,Between each clip of the Swan Lake ballet they show they have a group of little girls show how to do some dance steps & during this part your child can dance along with them.The thing I liked the most about this DVD is that they don't show the entire Swan Lake ballet they show clips of it & Prima Princessa explains what is happening along the way so that small children (& a lot of adults) can understand what is happening.I think this DVD would make a perfect girl for any little girl who loves ballerinas they also have other DVD's available.To view a clip of the show visit: Prima Princessa, an amazing resource for families interested in ballet. This site features wonderful ballerina coloring book pages as links to ballet schools, princess camps, dance camps, ballet tutus and more.Their DVD's can be bought on Amazon & at Target **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Sleepy Wrap GIVEAWAY & Review

I love sharing reviews with my fellow bloggers & fellow moms that are eco-friendly & safe for children to use.I received a wonderful chance to work with a company called Sleepy Wrap on a review & a giveaway.

For my Review I received a Sleepy Bear,Here is a little bit of information from the Sleepy Wrap website about their Sleepy Bear " the very first stuffed toy to help promote baby wearing! Made from the softest organic cotton, this new eco-friendly toy is perfect for your child's first friend (intended for children ages 3 and up). No buttons, snaps or removable parts are used on the Sleepy Bear – only soft stitching and materials are used to make this the perfect bear for your child! Produced in accordance with the requirements of the Organic Exchange 100 Standard, the Sleepy Bear contains no pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers or any other chemicals – we are dedicated to providing only the best for you and your family. " When the bear arrived my daughter was very excited & wanted to play with it right away she has fun taking out the 'baby' bear & then placing him back into the baby sling on the larger bear. Sometimes my daughter even likes wearing the wrap around herself to carry her bear or monkeys around.The bear & sling itself are very soft fabrics,perfect for any child,As the child gets older you could also re use the sling for something else if your child no longer plays with his/her bear.I also think the bear is the perfect size for little arms to hold.The only thing I have found that is a a small disappointment when it comes to this product is that The Sleepy Bear is available exclusively through certain retailers,& almost all of them do not sound familiar so it may be hard for some to purchase.

Sleepy Wrap has agreed to give one lucky winner a Sleepy Bear of their own.

Jenulence Review

I know I do a lot of makeup reviews & giveaways but bare with me! Reading through all of the reviews you will get a feel of what makeup type or company is right for you & which might not be the best to use.Plus what girl doesn't love makeup? Usually even if I do just a review for a company I try to put aside an item or two in the box I got to review to place into a giveaway put together by me for all of you! [This months goodie bag giveaway is still running until the 7th! when a new giveaway will be posted].

I had a wonderful experience working with a makeup company called Jenulence,who sells makeup,Bath & body items as well as Mens items.For my review I received A Ginger Glow Mineral Foundation Powder,Orchid Satin Blush,Natural Eye Shadow Brush,Mid-size Concealer Brush,Silver Sparkle Body Shimmering powder,Midnight Blue Matte Eye Shadow & Smoky Purple Matte Eye Shadow.I didn't realize until I received these items but if you use the Silver Sparkle Body Shimmering powder,Purple Matte Eye Shadow,Orchid Satin Blush & a Pale foundation you can create your own Vampire or Twilight Look [When I am able to I will come back & post photos for you].I personally LOVE the A Ginger Glow Mineral Foundation Powder & Orchid Satin Blush,the foundation is the perfect color for my skin since I received it I haven't been using any other foundation,The blush is an amazing color as well it gives you the perfect rosy cheek it is a mix between a light purple & a faint pink it reminds me of Cherry Blossoms.The makeup brushes they sent feel very soft against my skin,which is perfect for someone who is picky about makeup & brushes like myself.I have not had the chance to try the blue eye shadow or the sparkle powder but I know they will look amazing.The Smoky purple matte eye shadow i received is a perfect shade of deep purple.I had an amazing time working with Jenulence & Highly recommended them to makeup lovers.**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 Jenulence for the Review**

Okay so I know some of you want photos of the colors,I try to take some photos when I am able to of review Items,My camera is very crappy quality & doesn't take the best photos they come out dark most of the time.The reason Why I do not post photos of Makeup is because I have very pale skin in order to use my camera properly I have to use the flash [Unless I get lucky when the suns up] & the flash + my pale skin = One super bright photo lol. I know most of you have never seen a photo of what I look like so I will post one for you today,Yes I have a nose ring its something I like but its not for everyone please don't let it change what you think of my blog.

I got lucky with my camera for this photo it didn't make a reflection.In the photo above I am wearing the Jenulence A Ginger Glow Mineral Foundation Powder,Orchid Satin Blush & Blue Matte Eye Shadow.Now that I have scared all of you with my photos,I want to know what kind of makeup YOU like using,please leave a comment here with a specific type of makeup,brand of makeup,really anything that is makeup related I would love to hear from you.

Now onto todays Review & Giveaway:

I have the perfect giveaway for you today that fits in with stormy & rainy days,As many adults are well aware of it you have problems with arthritis or joint problems the cold & the rain is never any help when it comes to you feeling comfortable but the heat is a big help with sore joints,muscles & more.Even though I am just barley twenty years old I already have issues with my back so I was very happy to get a chance to work with a company called Warm Buddy for a Review & a Giveaway. For my review I was sent a Body wrap for myself & a Baby Wooly for my daughter.The first thing I found right away is that Both can be either put in the fridge to keep cold or put in the microwave to heat them up.The Baby Wooly sheep is super soft & very cuddly it has an easy to remove inner pack which is the perfect size for the Baby Wooly my daughter has not had the chance to use this yet because she hasn't been sick or hurt but she already loves the Wooly by itself it helps her fall asleep at night even without the inner pack warmed up which is great I love providing soft & safe products to my daughter to use at bed time.If you or your children aren't fond of Sheep they offer many other animals including a Puppy & Leopard.My experience with the Body Wrap has been perfect,I personally love the Body wrap it can be used any where on your body I am very happy to have this when I need it,last week I don't know how or when but I pulled my right knee & it hurt for three days straight but the Body wrap was a huge help I just placed it in the microwave for two minutes & it worked like a charm it wasn't too cold or too hot,It has a long lasting heat hold ability of 1 hour or more.I always seem to have some muscle that is pulled even though I do yoga so I used this on my back as well it helped my muscles relax & helped my back pop easier.This rejuvenating heat / cool therapy infused with aromatherapy can be used to relieve stress and ease the pain of aching muscles, menstrual cramps, sore backs, shoulders and stomachs.Each Body wrap is 10" x 20" so it is the perfect size they also come in Many colors I really enjoy the chocolate brown color they sent me.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Ecomom Review

I always seem to have a hard time finding great baby items for bath time that smell good & are healthy for my daughter.I was very happy to get a chance to work with a company called Ecomom which sells various items for children as well as adults that are safe & friendly.

For my Review I received A Sparkle Hearts Shine Shampoo & Sparkle Hearts Rainbow Soft Conditioner. A little information on the product line from the Ecomom Site "This line is perfect for girls growing out of "baby" and moving into big-girl-dom. Indulge your little lady's need to feel special with these almost-grown-up products. She'll be delighted to have beauty products of her own." I really enjoy the Sparkle Hearts Shine Shampoo & Sparkle Hearts Rainbow Soft Conditioner because not only does it come in a fun bottle that is bright,happy & very appropriate for a little girl but both smell equally amazing,almost like cupcakes.I always like products that fit the term 'A little goes a long ways' because it means your not spending a ton of money on them,& that term does apply to this shampoo/conditioner set because it only takes 1-2 pumps to wash your childs entire head while in the tub I usually have enough to wash my daughters body as well.After bath time my daughter & my bathroom always smell magical I wish my shampoo smelled as good as hers! & the best part is if any gets in her face it doesn't sting her eyes. **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Glass Dharma Review

One thing I haven't really thought about before was how many Plastic straws my family & I go through each month My fiance likes to have Ice in his drink but he will not drink out of the cup directly if there is ice in it so I always have to put a straw in his cup as well which normally is thrown away after he is done using it.I have tried using crazy straws & the hard plastic straws they sell at the store but they always had too small of a straw hole you either didn't get enough when you were drinking or they were hard to clean resulting in a nasty straw,I never knew there was a safe & fun alternative that also helps the environment.

Recently for a review I had the pleasure of working with a company called Glass Dharma For my review I received Four glass straws of various sizes & design.One is The Beautiful Bend which is Slightly bent to “reach” for your lips, this straw is slightly longer and has the same clarity and sparkle of all of our straws. The perfect accompaniment to the well stocked beverage bar.The second & third straws I got were The decorative dots straws which are used to color code your drinks (or just plain decorate your place setting), they also keep your straw from rolling off of the table or counter & the fourth straw is The Simple Elegance Standard length drinking straw which is self explanatory.They company uses a special process called “annealing” that eliminates excessive stress in the glass to create their straws.

My Experience:
At first I wasn't sure how well I would like the straws because of the fact I like to chew on my straws [Bad habit I know] but I really like using the glass straws since they are glass they do not suction together while your drinking & they can't get holes in them so it makes it easier to drink out of your glass.I also noticed that since the straw itself is a little larger than the plastic straws I am used to it makes my drink disappear faster which means I drink more water during the day which is a huge plus because I need it in this heat/The Decorative dots straw is also very fun because of the colorful dots,My two year old likes this straw best it helps her drink more water as well.My fiance likes to fight over the Green Decorative dots straw because he likes using it for his sodas.I enjoyed the fact that they came with small scrubbing brushes,since the straws are clear is is easy to see the inside to make sure they are truly clean.The glass is very sturdy I admit that I am clumsy & did drop one of my straws on the way to my kitchen but the straw did not break,I couldn't see any change in it from before I had dropped it.I had an over all great experience with this product & the product themselves are priced very fair.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Young Blood GIVEAWAY & Review

I have a lot of giveaways coming your way soon! Toys,Clothing,Jewelry & Much More.

If you have been a follower of mine for a while you know from many of my posts that I Love makeup,But most the makeup I own is eye shadow,Eye liner & Foundation I don't own too many bottles of Mascara because of the fact that I don't like the way most mascaras make my eye lashes clump together because then they just feel gross & make my eye lids feel heavy I have been waiting to find a great mascara & have Finally found it.Who is it by? I will talk about it in todays post I hope your in for a read because I am excited to share this with you so its going to be a long read.

After reading about a Makeup company called YoungBlood I decided I wanted to give them a try so I was very happy when YoungBlood wanted me to do a Review & a giveaway for them I couldn't wait to try out their makeup line.For my review I received A Mineral Lash Prime,A Mineral Lengthening Mascara,Two loose eye shadows in the colors Raven & Heather smoke,A pressed Mineral eye shadow Quad called Mermaid which has the colors Pink Pearl,Abalone,Ocean Mist plus Sea glass & A Intense Color eye pencil in Passion.Before I share my review with you I want to share a little bit about the Mineral Lash Prime,& Mineral Lengthening Mascara with you.The Mineral Lash Prime works under your mascara to create visibly fuller & thicker lashes after the first coat of mascara.The nourishing formula moisturizes & softens lashes to help prevent lash breakage,It also helps extend the wear of mascara.The Mineral Lengthening Mascara combines a voluminous formula with conditioning benefits for perfectly extended,defined lashes.The exclusively designed brush allows for smooth,even application while it lifts & separates each lash from root to tip.Long-wearing,non flaking & smudge-proof.Okay let me first start off by telling you that any time a mascara company says "visibly fuller & thicker lashes" I automatically think they are full of you know what,but I was willing to give it a try,& all I can say is 'WOW' first I used my normal eye liner then I decided to give the Mineral Lash Prime,& Mineral Lengthening Mascara I put on the first coat of Lash Prime it makes your eye lashes a silky white color you can actually see where it sticks to your eye lash then I added the Mascara I actually said 'Woah' out loud when I saw the result which brought my DH to investigate he could see the difference in the eye I used it on & the eye I didn't use it on,I am already a big fan of their Mascara because I truly know that yes it does work,It didn't clump or make my eye lid feel heavy at all I could barley tell I was wearing it.I LOVE the Mineral eye shadow Quad my favorite colors in it are Ocean mist & Seaglass the colors are Amazing I love blues so it was meant to be a plus that I love about the shadow quad is that it has a big mirror on the inside perfect for applying my makeup when I am not in my bathroom,The eye pencil has amazing color to it as well I enjoy using it with a black eye liner mix.I haven't had a chance to use the eye shadows[Raven will be given away in next months goodie bag] but I know they will look just as amazing as the rest of the Young Blood makeup line.I have definitely added the Lash Primer,Eye pencil,Mascara & Eyeshadow Quad to my 'Most used' area in my bathroom.**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 YoungBlood for the Review & Giveaway**

YoungBlood has Agreed to give one of my Lucky blog followers A Mineral Lash Prime($22) & A Mineral Lengthening Mascara($24) A $46 Total grand prize.Mascara comes in your choice of Blackout [Black] or Mink [Brown]

Hard Candy Review

Alot of the time when I used to shop at walmart I would see a Cosmetics line called Hard Candy but I never had a chance to try it mainly because I didn't know anyone who used it so I didn't know if it was worth the money or not,But I recently got a chance to work with Hard Candy on a product review.

For My review I was sent a Nail Polish called Rumor Mill,A 'Powder Keg' eye shadow in Gunmetal,& a Lipstick.I was very excited when the package arrived because I didn't know what was going to be in it,but I was very pleased to find the three items listed above.At first the nail polish just looked black to me which is perfectly fine I love painting my nails black,but soon after I put on the first layer of nail polish I found out it is a very deep very rich Purple that is almost black I absolutely love it,It also came with a free Purple ring attached to the bottle.The eye shadow is nice as well It is a mix of black & grey it has some glitter/sparkles but not too many I hate it when eye shadow is over sparkly because then it gets all over your face,the Lipstick is amazing as well it glides on smoothly & its only a shade or two deeper than my actual lips which is a plus because I don't like lipstick that is too deep in shade or too bright to where you look like a barbie doll.Hard candy must have read through my blog because they sent me three items that are perfect for me,& they are all easy to carry in my purse when I need them on the go.Hard Candy is sold exclusively at Walmart and is also available at The entire collection is super affordable and and fabulous and ranges in price from $5-10 Once I can I plan on buying their Intensify eye - High Drama Cream Eye Color.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Kiwiberry Contacts GIVEAWAY & Review

Some of the most used beauty products are Makeup & a lot of people use fake eye lashes but one thing that a lot of people don't think about using or even realize that other are using are colored contacts not only can they be used for Costumes,they can also help for special occasions or let you experience having an eye color you might have always wanted to have.

[My Eye,Purple Contact]

I have personalized used colored contacts in the past but when I went to go get more my optometrist office wasn't selling them anymore,& any time I looked for them online they either cost too much or don't have them in my prescription,so I was very happy to get a chance to work with a site called Kiwiberry Collection which sells colored contacts & fake eye lashes you may have noticed their Ad on the right side of my blog.They sell contacts in prescription or non prescription,so you can wear them even if you don't have vision problems.

[My eyes]

For my review I received a pair of Doll Eye Purple contacts & Angel Blue contacts,Unfortunately they didn't have any in my prescription so I got them in non prescription even though I wear glasses you can still see the contacts through them,I have only worn the Purple contacts but Have received many compliments on them & my DH decided he wanted to wear the blue so he has worn them every so often I wish he had them for his Halloween costume he wore last year,My friends & family loves these & they are going to have me get them some once they get the cash for them.The best part of the Kiwiberry Collection is that the contacts are CHEAP in comparison to larger contact sellers,they are only $20 a pair! Compared to $35-$60 a pair that's an amazing deal,The only down side is they don't always have a lot of prescription contacts But they are adding more to their collections.The contacts came in separate little bottles though I do have to warn be careful when opening each bottle they are secured on with a metal lid if you pull too hard the lid will basically rip in half & if you try pulling the rest of it off too fast you could cut yourself but doing it slow you will take it off just perfect,Another great thing that I love about this site besides their selection & their great prices each pair of contacts comes with a Free contact case,each contact case is white & pink.I personally love this site & plan on buying from this site once I get a chance because they have the pair of contacts I have been looking for again in my price range for the last four years.**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 Kiwiberry Collection for the Review & Giveaway**

Prize Alert:
Kiwiberry Collection has offered to give FIVE lucky winners each a pair of Fake Eyelashes.

Lips-n-Eyes GIVEAWAY & Review

To All the winners announced on Thursday there will be a short delay in my messaging you My internet is still messed up.

Having a lot of Makeup means having a lot of Makeup bags,boxes,containers & more which ultimately means one big Mess! I try my best to keep my makeup sorted & organized I keep the makeup I use most in my bathroom but with limited counter space its hard to store a log of makeup at once,I have always wanted something that can hold my makeup & possibly my nail polish at the same time while still saving room & being organized.

I am very happy to say I have found the perfect Makeup organization shelf.I got a wonderful chance to work with Lips-n-Eyes.For my review I was sent a Ultimate Cosmetics Organizer,I was very happy when it arrived Not only does this hold your Lip gloss,Eye liner,Mascara,Foundation,Nail polish & more but it comes with a Clock perfect for the times when you need to keep an eye on the time while your getting ready.I found the Ultimate Cosmetics Organizer very easy to install It was a little too big to fit on my small counter so I placed it on the wall next to my sink,I love the size of the Tubes they hold my eyeliner,mascara,& lip stick perfect I noticed that the main Foundation I use doesn't fit in the slots but it fits on top perfect.Another bonus that comes with the Ultimate Cosmetics Organizer is a Tips & Tricks sheet letting you know how to get the most out of your Ultimate Cosmetics Organizer.This has really helped keep my counter more organized & cleaned up since my lose eye liners & nail polish aren't on the counter now I have plenty more room for other things.You can see an image of mine below,Note: No that is not all the makeup I own that is just the makeup I use on a day to day basis.

Pillow Pets GIVEAWAY & Review

Update: My Internet is still not working properly I am not sure when I will be able to get it fixed,I can get on only a little before my router kicks me off,But don't worry this should Not effect my blog posts or giveaways getting these posted to you is my number one priority while my Internet is being wacky.

Today I have a very special giveaway for one Lucky winner! I received a very wonderful chance to work with Pillow Pets on a review & giveaway of their new Patriotic Puppy Pillow Pet,Yes the fourth of July has already passed but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate your country during the rest of the year.When I first heard of a Pillow Pet I wasn't sure what it was I couldn't even think of what it might be until I checked out their website & found out a Pillow pet is a Pillow shaped like an animal that you can 'close' to turn into a stuffed animal.I was very excited waiting for my package because I knew my daughter was absolutely going to love her new Pillow Pet.Pillow Pets will be Donating $5 from each Patriotic Puppy sold to Scholarships for Military Children.

When the Pillow Pet package arrived I opened it right away,My daughter was still in her high chair eating while I opened the package but when she seen her new Puppy she hurried to finish her Lunch so she could get down.At first she was a little hesitant about playing with the Patriotic Puppy Pillow Pet because it is bright red & almost the same size as her,but once she felt how soft it was she loved it she started petting it,hugging it & giving it kisses on the head.Every night since the pillow pet arrived my Daughter has been taking it to sleep with her during Naps & at bed time.I noticed that the Pillow Pets are also the perfect size to take on car rides,vacation & sleep overs.I love how soft the Pillow Pets are i am almost tempted to get one for myself.

Below is a picture of their Lady Bug Pillow Pets:

Playful Threads Review

Attention: Please be Advised this review does contain a link to a Lingerie site,They sell ONLY sexy lingerie, clubwear, plus-size lingerie, sexy dresses, dancewear, leg wear, pasties, thongs, jewelry, g-strings,Swim wear, & Bras but do have some photos that are a little 'mature' such as mesh clothing so please do not click unless you are 18+

We are all mature adults & we all know that ever one in the while its nice to buy some cute Lingerer from underwear,to Bras,Lace night gowns,& cute costumes but sometimes it is hard finding something that you are looking for based off your likes,your size or your partners likes,& not everyone likes going to stores such as Fredrick's of Hollywood & Victoria secrets because they are either embarrassed or don't want to pay an arm & a leg for something cute to wear while being romantic.I got a chance to work with a company called Playful Threads that sells Lingerie,Swim wear,Dresses,Jewelry,Costumes,Undies,Bras & Leg warmers they have a wonderful selection & they have amazing prices they even have clothing & Lingerie for Under $15 even for sets you can't beat a deal like that.For my review I received a Ace - Sexy Lycra Net Halter Baby doll with Elastic Back Straps and Matching Thong when the package came I wasn't sure what it was because it was packaged really well that way if you have snoopy neighbors or family they won't ask questions.I picked this item because I thought my DH would like it,turns out I was off on my guess hahaha I can't always be right but I try my best he liked the front half of the Lingerie but didn't like the way the back had fabric strips all down the back [Funny because this is the part I liked] ,Though if you purchase I suggest buying in a size 1-2 times larger than why you wear I am not a plus sized girl but with their measurements I am a plus size on their charts though when I got the item it didn't fit right so If i could I would have gotten it a little larger.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

New West Knifeworks Review

Good afternoon everyone I first wanted to say I am sorry if my blog posts are a bit later over the next few days I am having Internet issues that I am working on getting resolved in the mean time I will be trying to get over to my Mother's house daily to use her internet.

Today I get to share a review with you that i am excited to finally get to share with you! Besides Tupperware & Lunch boxes I haven't been able to share any Kitchen/Cooking related items with you but I was lucky enough to get to work with New West Knifeworks who sells Kitchen Knives, & Accessories.

For my review I was sent the Fusionwood Paring knife, I had it in my hands for less than five minutes before my Dear Husband eyed it & took it.In my DH's opinion he likes the well balanced Handle to Blade ratio,He also likes how it is light weight but still cuts very well he has found it very easy to prepare dinner with his new Knife.We are an Italian family & we cook a lot so I know this Knife will get a lot of use out of it,Please have a look at their site to check out what else they have to offer. **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Artterro Review

One of the best memories I have from being a child is doing Arts & Crafts with my cousins during summer vacation & I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to do crafts with me.Even if I am not crafting with anyone I still love crafting by myself that is why I started my own little Etsy Shop, So when Artterro asked me if I was interested in doing a product review I couldn't refuse.

For my review I was sent the Bubble Wand Kit, I picked this kit because my daughter loves bubbles but I have found that not all of the bubble wands that come with the bottled bubbles are the best to use while blowing bubbles.When my kit arrived I was very excited to test it out & very nervous since I am not the best at wire wrapping,I found that wire wrapping the marbles wasn't too hard though I am no skilled artist at it.So far I have only made one heart bubble want with a green dangling marble I have no idea what I would like to do for the other wand.This kit was fun & easy to use it also comes with a recipe for making your own Bubble mix at home which is fun fast & easy.Their kits are also very well priced for everything that comes in them I think these would make a perfect Christmas or Birthday gift they have many kits to choose from please feel free to stop by their site to check them out.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
