Hello & Welcome to my blog,My blog is open Internationally.My Nickname is Luna,I am a Mother to a Gorgeous little girl born on 12-31-2008 and a Handsome little boy born on 1-30-2013,I am currently engaged to my wonderful SO the father of my children,and we have a Fur baby named Pantera [He is a Black house cat], I am a Blogger, Mommy & crafter. I reside in Sunny Arizona where i grew up, I love spending time with my family,crafting,reading, & I love blogging.

When looking for a ring I always make sure to take how durable & sturdy they are into consideration. I do a lot with my hands so a ring that breaks easily isn't something I am interested in buying so I was quite excited to receive the chance to review a Flat Titanium Ring with Three Stripes from a company called Titanium Buzz.
Item description "This ring shown is 7mm in width and is made from durable titanium. The design shows 3 equal sections with small grooves carved into a flat profile ring. Done here in a polished finish but you can certainly change that to your liking as well" The ring arrived fast & in a very nice black ring box perfect for presenting it as a gift. When ordering this ring you get to choose not only the ring size but the width & finish of the ring,You can include an engraving as well which is always nice if your shopping for a promise ring or wedding ring. This specific ring I can see be more targeted towards males but females can wear them as well,The ring fits onto the finger nicely & has rounded edges which prevents it from snagging on clothing. This ring is very sturdy if your husband works with his hands a lot & frequently ends up hitting the back of his hand while working the ring will be perfectly fine. In the past I owned a ring that wasn't the most well made ring when my hand collided with the register on work on accident the rings gem popped out & the ring didn't have smooth rounded edges like the Titanium Ring with Three Stripes does & it ended up cutting into my finger leaving me with a nasty cut for two weeks. Needles to say I am very happy with this ring & I love their large selection of ring designs.I have enjoyed working with Titanium Buzz they have friendly customer service,fast shipping & their website is easy to navigate.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

One of the little pleasures in life that I enjoy most is Bath products you name it Bath salts,Bath bombs,Bubble Bath & More I love it & have tried many different companies. I recently found a company called Perfectly Posh which is a line of Purely Pampering Products, I had the chance to work with Shaleen Ague who is a Independent Consultant for Perfectly Posh. Perfectly Posh launched on October 1, 2011 and they are growing fast. They are very eager to share their fun and creative, USA-made brand with you.
Recently for a review I was sent a Cajole For Her Soap Massager & an adorable sample kit that came very nicely packaged It felt as if I had gone into the shop & picked out a nice little gift set.A seductive and feminine fragrance of vetiver grasses and juniper fills this invigorating soap massage. It's a great way to unwind in the shower.The Cajole soap has a very nice smell to it that wasn't overly strong and wasn't so light that you didn't notice a scent. The small bumps on the soap help give your skin a gentle massage & help clear away dead skin or dirt you may have built up on your body. Some of the samples sent in my cute little back included their Detox Body Mud Stripper,Slather a Lemonrice hand cream & more I tried both product that I just mentioned the Slather I love it makes my skin moisturized,doesn't leave it feeling greasy or nasty & it smells good. The Stripper Mud Detox I am not sure if I let it on for a little too long but it felt almost as if it heated my skin almost burned it may just be because I have sensitive skin. I also tried a small sample of their bath bombs & it smelled amazing really gave my bath and bathroom a nice smell for the night.I would purchase these items & I would use these products again I enjoy the effect they have and the nice scents they offer my skin.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Like most children and adults my daughter has some pretty messy morning hair,even when brushed & put into pig tails or a pony tail she would have the crazy hairs sticking out all over. Since she was still an Infant I didn't want to put any kind of hair products in her hair aside from detangler spray & shampoo/conditioner until I could out about Glop & Glam a company that makes Kid friendly hair products.Glop & Glam, the parent-approved, natural and organic hair care collection that deliciously combines style and functionality for infants, toddlers and tweens.Safe for baby soft and sensitive skin, Glop & Glam’s unmatchable formulas are naturally tear-free and rid parabens, alcohol and sulfates. Each product has been infused with blends of nutrient-rich raw extracts like Aloe, Echinacea and Green Tea, creating a signature hair hydration system to keep strands well-nourished and full of moisture.
For a recent review I was sent a Candy Apple Shampoo,Cake Batter Conditioner & A Glam Chocolate Cream for anti-frizz & shine. I was excited to try these out for the smell alone each one has its own unique & yummy smell perfect for children who don't necessarily like washing their hair during bath time,I know my daughter used to throw the biggest fits while getting her hair washed now she does it on her own. Only a little bit of each product goes a long ways it gives you a noticeable change in the hair & they smell nice which is an added bonus. The color of each product also makes them fun to use everything about these products are fun including the bottle shapes. The Glam line is for girls & the Glop line is for boys so there is something for everyone.All products are created by a 16 year veteran stylist, salon owner and mother of two & are 100% Paraben, Alcohol & Sulfate FREE. If you didn't think the fun smells & colors were enough the shampoo & conditioner have Lice preventive ingredients.They offer Beautiful, eco-friendly packaging, made in the USA Glop and Glam ranges in price from $4-16 and is available at Ulta, BeautyBrands.com, GlopandGlam.com and fine salons nationwide. I personally enjoyed using these products & my daughter enjoys them as well I have told my mommy friends about this line & would be more than happy to suggest their brand if anyone ever asked my opinion on which brand to purchase from. I have enjoyed working with Glop & Glam they have friendly customer service,fast shipping & fantastic products there are kid friendly & kid safe.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

I am very excited to say I have a very cute new pair of shoes,Normally I am very picky about what shoes I will buy & wear but as soon as I seen these Sulu Wedges in Black by Ugglebo I knew I wanted to own a pair! Just by looking at how cute these high heel wedges are you know why I was excited to receive a pair. Ugglebo Clogs is the Swedish Clog company that focuses on providing the most beautiful traditional Swedish clogs, high-fashion clogs and clog boots for women in the footwear industry. They started making wood clogs during the 1960’s and 70’s when fashion was reaching new heights that were never before seen and we’ve stayed true to the evolving fashion trends in the years to follow! We craft our footwear using the finest leathers, wooden bases, and metal hardware available throughout the world.
Here is the description of the shoes from the website "The Sulu Wedge Swedish clogs are a testament to one of the big fashion trends for this spring and summer. With their high wedge heels and lush nubuc leather, these wood clogs will elevate you far above most other mules and clogs for women this season. In the Sulu Wedges, you are not only ready for the beach, you are ready for anything.Ugglebo's Sulu Wedges come on a high Spanish pine wood bottom, and the leather is fastened with nailheads, giving the mules a fashion-forward look.The Sulu Wedges come in two different colors: Black and Marina." I have to admit that when I first received these I wasn't sure if my foot was going to be able to fit they appeared small but the tops are adjustable,after trying them on I found they fit my foot perfectly. I find this wedge to be comfortable,stays on my foot & I can wear them all day without worrying about the arch of my foot hurting they are everything I could have asked for in a shoe & more. Ugglebo offers a wide range of shoes with different wedge sizes,colors & styles you are sure to find something you like.

I recently received the chance to work with Wine Country Gift Baskets who offers a large assortment of gift baskets. It was very hard to choose a favorite while looking through their selections they offer Bath products,Food products,Wine & more. For a my review I was sent "The classic gift basket" which is loaded with Brown & Haley almond and cashew roca buttercrunch toffee, rosemary olive oil baked herb crackers, Italian almond cookies, Vino e Formaggio brie cheese spread, Walkers stem ginger cookies, Tazo Zen and Calm teas, Popchips cheddar potato chips, Nonni's roasted garlic crackers, white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, Otis and Betty's gourmet snacks, Stonewall Kitchen roasted garlic dip mix, vanilla sea salt caramels, cheese straws, toffee almonds, walnut shortbread cookies, smoked salmon, pecan trail mix and more which all comes in a very nice & reusable brown wicker basket.
This basket arrived surprisingly fast & looked wonderful when I pulled it out of the package it felt like unwrapping a very nice Christmas gift. I think the best thing about this basket is that the products included weren't the tiny sample sizes like most gift baskets contain it was plenty enough for three people to enjoy. With the large selection of food/snack items include there was something to keep all of us happy it was a pleasure exploring the basket,I think my favorite part aside from the wonderful assortment included is the basket which I am keeping in my room to use for storage,I love the basket. I had a great time working with this company the gift basket was presented beautifully with a big golden bow,the food items included were all delicious & the customer service was very friendly. Wine Country Gift Baskets has baskets that range in price so there is something for everyone they are worth checking out! I know I will be coming back to look at Birthday & Christmas presents for later this year. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

As the days grow hotter the worry about sunburns goes larger,Last summer I learned my lesson about wearing sun block when even taking a long car ride weather you have air conditioning or not.Last summer I went for a two hour drive to pick up a friend and bring her back during that time my left arm got sunburned from being in the sun for a long period of time,I had a funny tan on just my left arm for the rest of the summer,So this summer I always remember to have Coppertone sunscreen either in my truck or in my purse so I can protect myself from sunburns & bad tans.
This summer I am lucky enough to be part of the Coppertone Water Moms Squad! I was recently sent a summer tote bag with "Coppertone Water Moms" on the front which was filled with samples sizes of Coppertone water babies,A water bottle,Beach ball,& two large cans of sunblock one is spray on & the other is foam. My daughter has recently began swimming lessons at one of the local public pools/community centers so I always make sure to pack a outdoor/swim bag when we head off to her classes,What is included in the bag? A few water bottles,sunblock,a hat to protect her head and face from the sun,a towel,light snack & a small first aid kit along with a spare set of dry clothing for her to change into.My daughter normally doesn't like to put on any lotions,sunblocks or sunscreens but that all changed when we tried the Water Babies Foaming Lotion. My daughter absolutely loves it,She enjoys how it turns from a foam into a lotion & likes "smooshing" it onto her skin as she calls it,She giggles with excitement & is more than happy to put on her sunscreen now which makes me one happy momma.
I like to keep the spray sunblock in my truck because it is easy to use on the go & doesn't require me to rub it in this is nice for when I go on long car rides or even when I am just on my way home from work. I find that I like the spray best because I hate the way sunblock feels on my hands it normally leaves my hands feeling very greasy but I have found that both the Wet n clear spay & foaming Coppertone water babies does not leave my hands with that nasty feeling. I had a great time handing out the samples to the other parents at my daughters swim practice many parents weren't using or forgot their sunblock so it is always good to have some on hand. The tote bag I received is large & holds all of our summer time needs including towels,sunblock,snacks,drinks,extra clothing & pool toys or park toys depending on where we are going.*** I am a Coppertone water MOM & receive the products above for free as a member of the group all opinions are my own & may vary from others***
With the heat increasing it is always nice to find something to do as a family that is indoors yet still offers plenty of entertainment so why not look into some of your local Museums or centers? Today I took my family to visit the Arizona Museum Of Natural History which is located in Mesa,Arizona.The Arizona Museum of Natural History is the premier natural history museum in Arizona. It is dedicated to inspire wonder, respect and understanding for the natural and cultural history of the Southwest. It was Founded in 1977 & has 60,000 objects of natural history, anthropology, history & art.Explore Arizona and the Southwest from the creation of the earth 4.5 billion
years ago to the present. See the origins of life on earth, meteorites and
minerals. Along with bones of animals they also have Tom the soft-shelled turtle and a live Gila monster along with live beetles.
The drive from our house to the Arizona Museum Of Natural History is about half an hour to forty-five minutes but it is well worth the drive, & parking was easy to find once we arrived to the Museum. You start to feel the museum experience as soon as you walk thru the door because you are greeted by a giant skeleton of a Mammoth & other large animals. The staff was friendly & welcoming it was a nice family friendly environment & it was nice to get out of the Arizona heat.The Arizona Museum Of Natural History offers a lot of exciting exhibits & activities for children as you walk through the halls you see many skeletons & fossils on display along with videos,animated creations & interactive activites such as floor puzzles,gold mining,& fossil finding.
I took a group of four adults & two children to the museum our group ranged from 3 as the youngest & 61 as the oldest each of us found the Museum calming,educational & entertaining. The floors & exhibits intertwine with each other it was quite entertaining going from being on the first floor to being on the second because you are too busy looking at all the displays to notice that your slowly climbing up a ramp. My favorite parts was the Dinosaur Mountain where you can ear the roars of these amazing animals from a time long ago,& you get to see a Flash Flood which happens every 23 minutes,This part scared the little ones a little because lights begin to flash as thunder begins to roar as the water comes flowing down the rocks,We watched this both at the very top of Dinosaur Mountain & the bottom. I also enjoyed the Gold mining & Paleo Dig Pit which both offer hands on experience for all ages. We spent two hours walking the museum & viewing everything they have to offer the kids didn't want to leave but we had to depart.The last stop on our trip was of course the Gift Shop! It offered a large range of Dino toys,stuffed animals,Rocks,candy,jewelry,books & more all at great prices we bought quite a few things including a Memory pack which included: A map of where fossils have been found in Arizona,A pencil,A dino toy,Stickers & two rocks. I know that my family enjoyed their trip to the Arizona Museum Of Natural History & I enjoyed it myself, If you live in Arizona I suggest heading over on your next day off to learn & explore with the Arizona Museum Of Natural History. If you currently are not located in Arizona or aren't planning to visit here anytime soon I suggest checking out your own local Museums they are perfect during the summer & give you entertainment along with an educational experience. I wanted to personally thank the Arizona Museum Of Natural History for providing me with a four pack of tickets to visit their museum we look forward to visiting again before the summer is over. Since I was unable to post all of the pictures I wanted here you can head over to my Photobucket album to see other pictures from our trip.
Above you can see a photo of my daughter,my mothers boyfriend,his daughter & my daughter. On the right is a Memory pack example. I know it isn't a huge prize but I would like to Offer one of my readers a Memory pack I picked up in the gift shop,You can use it to have a small educational session with your child. Tell them about the rocks included,tell them about the dinosaur toy & stickers included and teach them about fossils. You can find them on Twitter & Facebook.
I recently received the chance to test out an item from a company called Sibu Beauty who was kind enough to send me one of their Sea Buckthorn balancing facial cleansers. Sea buckthorn is a natural product with 1300 years of traditional uses with the modern scientific research to back it up.Sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it's a rich source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, an essential fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.
Here is the description from the website "Deep yet gentle cleansing is the foundation of effective facial care at every age. This all-natural balancing facial cleanser gently removes dirt, impurities and make-up while maintaining a healthy balance in your skin without compromising its natural protective nutrients. This lightly exfoliating facial cleanser will leave your face fresh, clean, and perfectly balanced. Your skin will look and feel radiant." I found that this facial cleanser had a great texture & is great for cleaning off makeup from your everyday routine. You only have to use a little bit of it to wash your entire face which will make the bottle last longer,As for the price I think it is a little higher than I like to pay for my facial cleansers It can be purchased for $17.95 plus S&H though I do have to say this product is good for sensitive skin which can be hard to find. The Sibu Beauty website is easy to navigate & they have a list of each ingredient for you to look through before you purchase this product,A big bonus is that this product is Cruelty Free.****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 Sibu Beauty for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****
PRIZE ALERT: One lucky winner will receive their own bottle of Sea Buckthorn balancing facial cleanser from Sibu Beauty.
I AM SORRY BUT THIS GIVEAWAY IS FOR RESIDENTS OF CANADA & THE US ONLY. More international giveaways coming soon keep your eyes open for them!
Monthly subscription boxes are becoming more & more popular,Why? It is a easy way to test out new products with great prices & you never know just what you will be getting so its a surprise. I recently found out about a website called WittleBee kids clothing club.
I recently received the chance to receive one of their boxes for a review,The first thing I noticed & loved about this product is that you can customize your box. The box is easy to customize first you pick a Gender,Your childs age & you can enter their name,Next you get to choose a style that fits them best such as Princess,Geek Girl or Mix & Match,Then you can pick designs,colors,ect & clothing you would most like to get pick from Shirts,Shorts,Shoes,Dresses/skirts or Onesies. Once you are done picking out everything they have for you to choose from one of their stylists will pick out clothing that bests suits your child I received some Girl clothing & Boy clothing.
I was very excited to receive my box & see what they had picked out to send to me. I was very pleased at the clothing they picked I loved everything it fit perfectly into their clothing styles. As you can see above I received a brown Paul Frank shirt,Blue skull shirt,Brown drum set shirt,Blue shorts,Grey sweat pants,Light green strap shirt,& a black pair of shorts. I think that signing up for the subscription would be well worth the cost which is $39.99 a month,Your customized box of clothes arrives at your door in about two weeks. Every box contains about $100 in retail value of clothes. You’ll receive a new box of clothes every month. You can pause or cancel your membership anytime. Aside from getting this for yourself I think that this would make the perfect baby shower present! The package arrived in a matter of no time which is always pleasant when you get your package sooner than expected,I could not have been more happy with my experience with this company. I love the products,shipping is fast,& the customer service is very friendly I highly recommend this website to everyone with children who wear clothing size NB- 5T. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

One of the products I am always very picky about buying & wearing is Bras, It would seem easy enough to just head to the store & grab a bra you think is cute but it's not that simple. I always have issues with the band width,straps,or the way the bra is built in general. The most important time to make sure you have a well fitting comfortable bra is when you are breast feeding. I recently received the opportunity to work with a company called Bella Materna,They sell a wide range of Maternity lingerie.
I received a Anytime T-Shirt Bralet in black,The description from the website is as follows "The NEW Anytime T-Shirt bralet provides smoothing coverage and comfortable support for your last trimester into nursing. Comfortable enough for sleeping,Removable Pad for 'smooth shape',Extra settings at back closure for extended wear,Adjustable straps,Oeko-Tex fabric certified to be to be toxin free,Pull aside nursing access,Maternity bra and nursing bra in one." This bra is both comfortable & fits nicely it gives me support while still allowing my skin to breath. Since it doesn't have a under wire I do not have to be worried about the wire poking my sides or poking my under arms which I always find is a plus,You also can't see bra lines through my T-shirts which is a Big plus for me I hate it when you can see the lining of my bra though my shirt. This bra feels more natural then other bras I have tried,It is almost as if I wasn't wearing one at all while still having the support. Other products from the Bella Materna site I like include the Hot Pant,Bikini,Lounge pant,and Anytime nursing gown they are all products I would like to try in the future. The bra is a little more then I would pay normally for a bra but the comfort & support it offers is well worth the money. ****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 Bella Materna for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****
PRIZE ALERT: One lucky winner will receive their own Anytime T-Shirt Bralet in black.
