Roaring Spring Paper Giveaway & Review

I like to keep organized & part of that means keeping lists,notebooks,ect with Holiday plans,Birthday Ideas,Blog lists,Shopping lists & more. I was quite happy to come across a company called Roaring Spring Paper Products. Here is a little bit of information about the company from their website "In 1887 Daniel M. Bare founded the Roaring Spring Blank Book Company to produce ledgers,journals, etc., hence the name 'Blank Book'. Today the company has grown from a 20 person operation in a small two story brick building to over 250 employees in 400,000 square foot of modern manufacturing and distribution facilities. Today Roaring Spring Blank Book is now one of the largest independently owned producers of school and office supplies. Special high speed equipment not only produces notebooks, pads, and tablets, but construction paper, poster board, and pocket folders"

For a recent review I was sent a package containing the Genesis 1,3,and 5 subject notebooks along with three sets of Wide landscape legal pads. I was very happy to receive these since I am running out of notebooks here at home we use them for many purposes here & for school use as well. I love keeping one of the smaller Wide landscape legal pads in my desk & another in my purse I find they come in quite handy I use them for shopping list,Keeping shipping information & more such as information about certain programs,school numbers and To do lists. If I need to take a page out of one of the notebooks or off of the legal pad I can do so without having to worry about the paper ripping unevenly it simply tears right off with no problems. My favorite part of these products is that all of their products are made from Recycled Materials such as: recycled papers, sugarcane fiber paper, and poo papers. Roaring Spring offers dozen of products for both school & office uses having tested out their products I plan to use their company products for quite some time to come they are reliable,well made & eco friendly products that are great for the whole family. ****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 Roaring Spring Paper Products for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

One lucky winner will receive the same pack I received which includes: Genesis 1,3,and 5 subject notebooks along with three sets of Wide landscape legal pads.

Eylure Review

I try to do my makeup often & on special occasions I like to wear fake eyelashes but there are a few things I dislike when it comes to fake lashes which are as follows 1.) Makes my eyelid feel heavy/weighed down 2.) The glue usually smells like a retirement home 3.) Glue doesn't dry properly. With that being said I am always on the look out for a company that sells lashes that are up to my standards so when I received the chance to work with a company called Eylure.Here is a little bit about them from their website Eylure lashes were first developed by a partnership of makeup artists and costume designers, David and Eric Aylott, who began making lashes as well as wigs, beards and mustaches for some of the biggest names in the film industry. Their Eylure lashes proved popular with some many Hollywood leading ladies such as Marlene Dietrich, Joan Collins, Ingrid Berman, Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor, famously creating her legendary look as Cleopatra.

I was recently sent four sets of lashes to test out in different lengths & thicknesses, Each set of lashes comes with a small bottle of Adhesive. The first thing I noticed was the good quality of the lashes they didn't appear as "Fake" as other false lashes I have seen they looked like they would blend in perfect with my real lashes. When it came time to test out the lashes I was a little bit skeptical of how well their Adhesive lash glue would work since a majority of lash glues that come with fake lashes are pretty bad. I was very happy to find that the Adhesive had no smell,Had a slanted shaped applicator to make it easy to add to the lashes & dried fast/clear.In the photos below I used one of their smaller/thinner lashes to give a more natural look.

Before                                                                                                 After

After the lashes were applied I could hardly tell they were their weight wise it felt like I was wearing nothing at all but it made my lashes look twice as thick as normal. I didn't have to add any extra glue or reposition the lashes at any time through the day they stayed perfectly in place & I did not have any issues with them. I would recommend this product to anyone who enjoys using fake eyelashes they are the best lashes I have tried.****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 Eylure for the Review free of charge****

Borsa Bella Design Co. Giveaway & Review

I have been on the hunt for a new camera case that suits my needs & I am very happy to have found the perfect little bag to hold my camera,extra memory card,battery & charger. A sweet little company called Borsa Bella Design Co. sells some of the cutest bags I have seen for quite some time. For a recent review I received the Black London Gadget Roo Bag which is black with white & grey swirls.The company is ran by a young woman named Melissa who began sewing at the age of six & her amazing skills show true with how well put together and thought out her bags are,The Gadget Roo I received became an instant favorite of mine and will always be kept in my purse or on me at all times.

"If you prefer to carry only the necessities while maintaining your sense of style, then the Gadget Roo Wristlet is for you. This petite bag serves as the perfect multi-function accessory. Unhook the swivel and attach it to the other side where a D-ring has been artfully added so it can attach to a stroller, belt loop, Golf Bag or Borsa Bella® handbag. Borsa Bella® Wristlets are made with a little extra padding and a soft quilted cotton fabric interior ensuring its durability is on par with its sense of style." I personally love this wristlet my two favorite features are the Second pocket & the extra padding it makes me feel that my camera will stay safe. The main inner pocket is large enough that my camera fits safely along with my credit cards,cash or other small items when I don't feel like carrying a large purse around the Zoo,Store,Park,ect the smaller pocket is perfect for my Extra memory card,Charger & lip balm. Taking a look through their website I also love their Black Beauty Borsetta,Argyle Perfection eReader Travel Bag & Elegant Black and White Catch All Bag. The shipping was fast,Customer service is friendly & their products are well made,built to last and have everything I want in a bag.

Dorcy GIVEAWAY & Review

After a bad storm we had about two to three weeks ago I have been thinking about steps to prepare for bad storms & natural disasters in the future. We experienced heavy rain,lightning/thunder and some mild wind which was we were perfectly fine inside watching TV until the power went out,Being her first time in a power outage my daughter started freaking out which is when I came to the horrible realization we had No flash lights in the house & only a few candles which were hard to find with only a cell phone light.

I no longer need to worry about finding my way through a pitch black house because A company called Dorcy came to my rescue! Dorcy is a company that has marketed Flashlight products for over 55 years & is a proud business partner with many of the world’s largest retailers including Sears,Wal-Mart,ACE Hardware,TruServ & Target. For a recent review I was sent A 41-1080 500 Lumen LED Spotlight,A 41-2097 134 Lumen Headlight Spot Beam, A 41-4750 180 Lumen LED flashlight, 4 41-6407 LED Glow Light - Glow Stick & Two sets of Batteries [AA & AAA].The 500 Lumen LED Spotlight uses a new battery saver technology that extends the life of the battery ensuring years of great performance the spotlight gives 2 ½ hours of continuous use which is perfect for when the power goes out,fishing trips or camping trips I plan on keeping mine where I can always reach it.The 180 Lumen LED Cyber Light Flashlight takes advantage of leading technology with its True Spot Reflector system that gives you a 275 Meter beam of light & Believe me it really does have a wide reach when I am collecting fire wood or have to use the bathroom at night while camping I like being able to see what is in front of me but the one flash light we have in the truck doesn't do much justice in the way of lighting the way so I will be more than happy to pack this in my camping bag. The Flashlight & Head light are both light weight the Spotlight is a bit heavier but would still be easy to carry around.

We were excited to try out our new flashlights & I can tell you that these lights are Bright we were actually surprised at how bright they were and how well they work. My favorite is the Lumen LED Spotlight it lights up our bedroom better than our actual lamp does & it covers a large amount of space I can't wait to take this with me camping. My daughter enjoys playing with the Glow sticks & the headlight she will run around at night with the headlight on which is an adorable site. After trying these products I would be more than willing to purchase more of their products & I plan on doing so in the near future. Dorcy offers a wide range of lights & lighting needs one of my personal favorites from their website is their Lumens 4D LED Twin Globe Lantern & their LED Motion Sensor Flood-Lite. All of the products they offer are offered at very reasonable prices and the products are worth it they work well,& will last a long time. My entire family can honestly say we Love Dorcy & the products they offer we will be Dorcy fans for life. ****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 Dorcy for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

Dorcy has agreed to give one lucky winner the following (1) Lumen LED Spotlight,(1) Lumen Headlight Spot Beam & (1) Lumen LED flashlight.

Where have we been?

Many of you may have notice that my blog was not working properly or even appeared for the last almost week,Why? I am in the process of switching my blog to a domain after I discussed the topic with a new sponsor of mine I decided to go for it because it seems like a good step for my blog, But what I didn't know is that google/blogger is currently going through a "Glitch" phase any new domains bought during this month haven't been working properly to say the least.

 My blog ran smooth & perfect while still under a name once my payment for a custom domain was sent my blog first had issues with certain links loading which didn't seem like a huge deal at the time. While clicking on the "View my blog" from the blogspot dashboard it brought up a little notice letting you know blogger was working on transferring the blog to its custom domain & it would be visible to everyone in three days again I didn't have an issue with it. About four days after purchasing my new domain I got online to post a new blog post & go about my daily routine upon visiting my blog I found a "404 ERROR" link/website not found in our system sorry please check again I was heart broken, My blog was gone invisible to the world even to myself for almost a week. During this time I felt helpless I didn't know what to do so I tried contacting blogger about the issue which is when I found out they have no phone number they can be reached at & they do not accept direct emails from their customers they just had a forum/chat board for blog and site owners to lend a hand to each other if possible,I found not only was my blog "Missing" from the world but a few dozen other blogs/site owners were having the same issue.

As you can see I was finally able to get my blog back online it finally let me switch from the custom domain back to a regular blog,The custom domain still isn't working so until blogger can fix the issues with the domains I will be sticking with my regular blog! I am sorry to anyone who tried visiting my blog but had a issue with it loading.

Candle Warmers Ect. GIVEAWAY & Review

Having kids & animals sometimes means you will run across an unpleasant smell or two throughout the week but a company called Candle Warmers Ect. is here to help! Candle Warmers, Etc. commitment to enhancing the home with affordable and safe candle warmer appliances and accessories has contributed to its success with several varied product lines.  Among the Candle Warmers, Etc. product categories are:  traditional plate candle warmers, candle warmer lamps and lanterns, the Jamie Clair line of wicked/wick-less candles, candle warmer lamp accessories.For a recent review I received one of their Ceramic Candle Warmer & Dish sets in sandstone,a Plug In Fragrance Warmer called round moss & a package of Jamie Clair Wax Melts in the scent Raspberry Cream.

You could smell the Raspberry Cream wax melts right through the package they smelled quite lovely & had a strong scent to them which meant they are perfect for filling two to three rooms with the smell without having to have more than one burner going. I enjoy how small the Ceramic Candle Warmer & Dish set is it blends into my kitchen without getting in the way or taking up too much room,while still making my kitchen & living room smell wonderful. I think the Plug In Fragrance Warmer is perfect for a high traffic hall way or bathroom when guests are over. I found that only one to two chunks of the wax melts were perfect for the candle warmer and one chunk was good for the plug in warmer. I have enjoyed using my wax warmer set & I look forward to using it more as the holidays grow closer,I think that the melts can offer a wide range of holiday scents to spread through out my home without having to actually cook the food that delivers the smell. Shipping was fast everything arrived in perfect condition,Customer service is friendly,Prices are great & the products are worth the purchase. ****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 Candle Warmers Ect. for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

I am very happy & excited to have been offered a chance to work with a company called My Urban Child not only on a review but on a giveaway also. It was quite difficult to pick just one item for review the products on their website are all super adorable & the house hold products look fantastic after looking around my finale decision was the Trend Lab Chibi Zoo Hamper Set because my daughter usually just tosses her clothes somewhere in her room after she gets dressed,the Hamper is shown below.

"Trend Lab’s Chibi Zoo Hamper Set is a decorative solution for quick clean up. The animal scatter print body with solid brown ultrasuede outer flap easily attaches to the collapsible pine wood frame.

Machine washable inner mesh liner is removable making the transport of laundry effortless. Assembled hamper measures 27” x 15” x 15”. This hamper coordinates with the Chibi Zoo collection." The hamper arrived much faster than I had expected I was very excited to get it set up & placed outside of my daughters bathroom,I found that the hamper was very easy & simple to set up. The hamper holds a large amount of clothing & is easy to use if I do not want to bend over & take all of the clothing out I can simply take out the inner lining & dump the clothing into the washer. The hamper is easy to store when you are not wanting to use it which is also a nice feature of the product,It is high quality item.

Glass Peace Review

If you like handmade jewelry Glass Peace is worth looking into they offer a wide variety of glass pendants, beads, rings, cabochons, and earrings all handmade by Amir Shawn and Allison Hill.Most of their art work is created by using a torch to manipulate a very durable, shock resistant glass called borosilicate (commonly known as Pyre). Using different sized rods and tubes of clear and colored glass, They create their one-of-a-kind lampwork glass pendants, earrings, and beads, then place the pieces in a computerized kiln to anneal them, which removes any stresses in the glass, ensuring a beautiful and durable piece that you will enjoy for a lifetime.

 For a recent review I was sent a hand blown lampwork glass jellyfish pendant,The hand crafted glass pendant exhibited above features a jellyfish swimming in the depths of the ocean hanging from a thick glass loop with a 4.0mm hole size. It measures 18mm wide and 48mm from the top of the loop to the bottom of the pendant. The necklace and pendant are light weight & the black cord the pendant comes on is adjustable so you can wear it tight like a choker or wear it loose. I love the details in the jelly fish because it looks like thier is a real jelly fish floating inside of the glass,the pendant is small enough that I don't feel weight down & its large enough I can show it off which is always a plus with unique jewelry. Looking through the Glass Peace website you can find a number of beautiful glass creations which were all made by hand,Prices range from $19 to $49 per set. The shipping was fast & the pendant arrived in a very nice jewelry box with padding to insure it had a safe ride to its new home. ****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 Glass Peace for the Review & free of charge****

My Wonderful Walls GIVEAWAY & Review

Any time I receive the chance I love getting new pieces of art,pictures,murals & more to decorate my daughters room with so when I received the chance to work with the company My Wonderful Walls I couldn't refuse. My Wonderful Walls offer stencil fabric wall sticker kits, full-room stencil kits, and color-adjustable canvas art for decorating kid rooms and baby nurseries in dozens of different designs both for girls & boys.


I had a hard time deciding what to pick from the website ultimately it came down to the fact we are still stuck in an apartment & I am unable to paint the walls or add wall stickers so I choose a very adorable Canvas called "Fairy and Doll" whi. The canvas arrived in a very short amount of time & my daughter couldn't wait until I hung it up in her room so that is the first thing we did once the package was open. The canvas has beautiful color & the way the pink and brown/black of the fairy contrast she looks like she is really standing on the flower almost like a 3D image. The canvas was easy to hang & it is light weight so even my daughter was able to help hang it up in her room,the painting is very unique & we have received many compliments on it we have been thinking of buying her the fairy wall murals for her room as soon as we get our new house. As I mentioned before they have designs for both Boys & Girls such as Dragons,Fairy,Princess,Monster,Space,Owl,Bugs & More their prices range from $50 to $140 depending on what is included in each set the site is well worth checking out & they offer high quality products.The wall stencils can be used efficiently approximately 6-12 times or if cleaned properly I am sure they can be used more than that which is always nice because you can reuse them for more than one room.My Wonderful Walls was created by Michael Goins & features the art work of three very talented artists,The company is based out of Chattanooga, Tennessee. ****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 My Wonderful Walls for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

Butt Bench Review

One of the places I enjoy spending time in my home is in my Bathtub,I like taking relaxing bubble baths & hot showers but the one thing I don't like about my shower is the lack of space to put shampoo,bubble bath,bath salts,ect so I was very happy to learn about a product called Butt Bench. What is a Butt Bench? Butt Bench is a sturdy, high-quality patent-pending bathtub seat made of natural wood. This tub seat supports your weight – use it to make shaving easier, or sit down, relax, and turn your shower into a sauna. Butt Bench is also a great bathtub storage ledge!

Above you can see my Butt Bench & my assortment of bath products,The Butt bench was easy to install because all you need to do is set it on the back of your bathtub & make sure the suction cups are pressed up against the wall then you're done. For my review I received the Ceder bench The timeless beauty of a natural Cedar Wood, sealed with a water-proof finish, adds elegance to any bathroom. The Cedar Butt Bench can create a relaxing zen or spa-like feel in your bathroom. Use it to make shaving easier, or sit down, relax, and turn your shower into a sauna.

I must confess that I love my Butt Bench I received the Butt Bench before I became pregnant which is when I mainly used it for keeping my bath products on but now that my baby belly is growing bigger it is helpful for shaving my legs,or sitting down to relax while taking a hot bath. I have also used the bench to sit on while soaking my feet for a pedicure! It can be used for a number of purposes and is a very safe product to use,I have never once worried about it falling,moving or sliding off of my tubs ledge. The Butt Bench can hold up to 300LBS & is made in the USA you can pick from four different benches for your bathtub. The shipping was fast,the bench arrived in perfect condition & their customer service is very friendly. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Gem Ceramic by Etienne Perret GIVEAWAY

I like wearing jewelry but in order for me to want something as part of my Jewelry collection it has to be unique & that is exactly what Gem Ceramic by Etienne Perret offers. With 40 years of experience creating the finest bridal and fashion jewelry set with colored diamonds and South Sea pearls in Platinum and 18kt gold, Etienne Perret now brings you his exciting new Gem Ceramic collection.Ultra-durable and stylish, versatile and unique, Gem Ceramic is the perfect alternative to precious metal jewelry at a fraction of the price. Available in a variety of colors of styles, Gem Ceramic can be inlaid with gold and set with diamonds or pearls.

For a recent review I was sent a 4mm Dome black polished Ceramique ring,The specific kind of ceramic that Etienne is designing with is made out of is called zirconia ceramic, mined in an ecologically friendly manner from the relatively abundant zircon sands of Australia. It is an amazing material and a perfect, stylish, low cost alternative to traditional gold and platinum bridal jewelry designs and great for both men and women! I originally was going to give this ring to my husband to wear but I have to admit once it arrived I found I like it too much to do that. The ring fits great because of the polished finish it slides right onto your finger & slides right off when you are ready to take it off,You might think because you can put it on & take it off easily that it might fall off your finger right? That is actually very untrue the ring has a snug fit around the finger without fitting too tight. What is my favorite thing about the ring? Since it is made from ceramic I can wear it while I shower or wash my hands without having to worry about my finger turning green or the ring rusting. The ring is also very durable I work as a cashier which means I use my hands constantly & they do get hit up against hard objects a lot while working I have never once had a fear that this ring was going to break,chip or get any scratches. I like thinner rings that don't take up a large portion of my finger so I was happy that I was able to choose my own width for the ring it turned out perfect! Looking through the website there are dozens of gorgeous & unique rings that range in color,size,style & material the best part is they can all be made to personalize you! Shipping was fast,customer service is friendly & family ran.****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 Gem Ceramic by Etienne Perret for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

PRIZE ALERT: Gem Ceramic by Etienne Perret has agreed to give One lucky winner a Dome Style ring like the one I received. [Winner gets to pick from 4, 6 or 8mm, in black, white, pink, blue or chocolate, with polished, silk or brush finish, in whatever size they need]. Ring is pictured in the FIRST photo of this post,Width of band depends on which you pick.

UV Skinz GIVEAWAY & Review

This summer my daughter started her first Swimming lessons which went very well,Knowing that she was going to be in the sun & heat everyday for two weeks I wanted to make sure she was protected while swimming. I recently found a company called UV Skinz that offers fun and fashionable protective sunwear for infants, kids and adults. UV Skinz’ UPF 50+ sun protection clothing blocks out 98% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, giving outdoor enthusiasts the peace of mind to live and play protected from the sun. For a recent review I was sent A UV Long Sleeve Hot Pink/Flowers top,Hot pink "Boy cut" shorts,Baby Bloomers Sky Blue & a blue boys top.

My daughter enjoyed wearing her UV Skinz they were easy to put on & fit great at first I thought something with long sleeves might be a little hot for her to swim in but she didn't have any issues with it & enjoyed wearing her outfit. Unlike other swimming suits that can be hard to get off when wet the UV skinz come right off without any problem,which both my daughter & I enjoyed because it meant we didn't have to fight with her suit. After trying out UV skinz I don't think I will be going back to a regular bathing suit anytime soon,my daughters outfit is adorable & offers plenty of benefits the little boys outfit is just as wonderful. UV Skinz offers size 6 Months to Adult sizes so there is something for everyone! But what about prices? I think that their swim suits & swim pieces are priced appropriately for the materials used & the benefits their pieces offer,We look forward to using their products again next summer. UV Skinz swim shirts cost about the same as a couple bottles of sunscreen, but will last you for several seasons. Shipping was fast & their customer service is very friendly the company is worth checking into and their products are high quality.****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 UV Skinz for the Review & a Giveaway free of charge****

Above you can see Matthew & Levi McConaughey, June 2009 wearing UV Skinz.

PRIZE ALERT: One lucky reader will win their own Toddler or Childs UV Skinz set. [Color picked by company but you can choose if its for a boy or girl and size.]
