Reduce Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Reduce

I always try to make sure my family stays hydrated and while I do that I also want to be able to cut back on the amount of plastic water bottles we use so I was excited to get the chance to review the WaterWeek Kids - Lil Monsters bottle set. The Reduce WaterWeek set consists of five water bottles that come with a fridge holder to store five days worth of water, simply fill the bottles, store and grab one when you need it.

I like having this set because it is easy to just fill up, put in the fridge and have the kids grab one when ever they want. We reuse water jugs that we fill up at the grocery store and from there we keep these filled up. They are made from thick sturdy plastic and hold 10oz of water, as you can see from the photo above each bottle is bigger than my hand.They are easy to rinse out and you can take them on the go because they each come with a lid, or you can buy pop up lids from their site. Each kids set cost $16.99 and comes with the five bottles, lids and the fridge tray. The thickness of the bottle helps keep the beverage cooler for a longer amount of time. The only thing I would want more would be a slightly larger mouth hole so I can put ice inside if needed however I can just use a smaller ice cube tray and that should fix that problem. With any new water bottle you should rinse these out once before using them as they have that new plastic water bottle smell to them. Shipping was fast and the bottles arrived in perfect condition, and customer service is also fast and friendly.

Travel Favorites Giveaway!

There are a few makeup products that I love and thus they are part of my daily routine, When I go on long trips I like bring them with me as well to have them handy. I wanted to share some of my favorites here with you and see what you like to pack for long trips or vacations!

First up is actually a recently found favorite and that is the Tree Hut Coconut Lime shea sugar scrub, I found out about this product during a birthday shopping trip in May and fell in love with the product. I seen that they had a travel set and I knew I wanted to bring it with me on our trip to California so I stopped off at Ulta before we left and picked up this travel set.

Every makeup set needs a bag to be held in, my to go bag is this adorable Totoro zip up pencil case that fits my makeup perfectly and doesn't take up a lot of room in my purse or suit case. Inside of my makeup case you will find a NYX HD eyeshadow base, NYX White eye liner, Ulta crease brush, Star Looks mini palette, Rimmel London Stay Matte foundation, Cover Girl foundation, a Revlon shadow in brown and a Mia Mariu black eyeliner. No these products aren't super high end but they are some of my favorites, I've tried dozens of makeup brands and these products have stood out among all of those. I do wear my colorful shadows but when I am on the go I usually go with a light smokey eye so this shadow set is perfect. Most of these products can be bought from Ulta, and I love hosting giveaways so why not host a contest for an Ulta Gift card?

What is one of your favorite products you can't be without?

One lucky winner will receive a $50 Ulta Gift Card!

Loot Crate July Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by LootCrate for the review free of charge.****

I was quite happy that my Loot Crate arrived before I went on vacation, It would have been too tough knowing my box was sitting in my mail box with surprise treasures inside while I was away for four days. I think this months box is wonderful and said "Heck Yes" a few times as I unpacked my box. This months theme was "Heroes 2"

This months box included a adorable exclusive TV series Batman Q-Pop figure that has a little dry erase speech bubble which now proudly sits on my computer desk. A Wonder Woman poster that says "She can do it!" that I can't wait to hang up on my wall, The poster is basically Wonder Woman as Rosie the Riveter. Next in the box I found a Legend of Zelda sweat band that features the triforce emblem, A Batman multi-tool key chain that has a bottle opener and two mini screw heads (my husband stole this for his key chain), A Exclusive quirk book called "The League of Regrettable Superheroes, A code for a item in the online game Brawlhalla, a Star Trek air freshener and the monthly collectable pin. I personally think these boxes are worth the cost, yes you may run into an item or two you don't like I've done it myself not everything in this will be suited to your likes but 90% of the time you will like at least a few of the items included. In this box I absolutely loved three of these products, thought two were great and only one I could do without which was the air freshener but I know someone who loves it so it went on to a new home. If you want to see what came in previous boxes feel free to check my blog to look at the goodies in the previous boxes.

Reggie Box Review & Giveaway!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Reggie Box for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

To many of us pets are like family, if you grow up with them it is like having a furry little brother or sister or it is like having a little furry baby. I enjoy spoiling my pets as much as I do my children so I wanted to host a fun giveaway for all the dog owners out there (Don't worry I am working on something for the cats too!). I recently received a fun dog box from a company called Reggie Box. Reggie Box is a monthly subscription box for your dog,  They send out a monthly box that contains both treats and toys for your pooch. You can buy a month subscription for $30 a month or a 12 month subscription for $20 a month.

Before my box was shipped out I spoke with a Tammy Masau who is the Vice President of Reggie Box and she asked me a few questions about the pups who would be receiving the box to insure the right box was sent out based on the size of my pups. They offer three different boxes one for small dogs, medium dogs and Large dogs and each one has products that are suited more for each weight, for example would you want to get a small dog bone that is best for a Chihuahua if you have a Great Dane? No, so they make it easy to get something your dog will enjoy. My box arrived in a timely manner and the customer service was wonderful.

The box I received was for medium dogs, it contained three toys and three different types of treats. The dogs could tell right away there was something waiting for them in the pop and were excited for me to open it. As you can see from the photos above the dogs were very happy with their Reggie Box, two of them wanted to eat all the treats and the other wanted to hoard the toys that came in the box. All of the products included in the Reggie Box are made in the USA and are hand selected by the Reggie Box team based off the quality of the products. I am quite happy with the selection I received, the toys and dental chew were high quality which is great because the little toy thief above usually chews everything to death in a matter of days and these are still holding strong. If it were up to these three mischief  (one isn't pictured he is camera shy), they would eat all the treats in one sitting but we won't allow that so they get some here and there for being good. To be completely honest the little oatmeal ball type treat they sent would pass for people food it actually looked pretty good!

One lucky winner is going to win the box pictured above for their pooch!
This giveaway is for US Residents only!

Knock Knock Stuff Review & Giveaway!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Knock Knock Stuff  for the review free of charge.****

Road trips can be a lot of fun but at some point during the ride it can also get a little boring. Thankfully we aren't traveling far to reach our Vacation destination the trip will only take 6 hours, but with two kids in tow we need something to help keep them occupied. Knock Knock stuff came to the rescue and sent me two on-the-go game pads & a 5 days a week paper mouse pad.

The on-the-go game pads each have three games per pad, Pad #1 has Tic-tac-toe, Categories & Connect 5. Pad #2 has Hangman, Dots & boxes and Out & About Bingo along with having three games per pad each game has 15 sheets per game. I like that the pads are put together like a note pad, you write on one and you can either tear it out with ease or you can leave it in and go onto the next page. The inside of the front cover goes over the rules of each game and how to play which I like because I've never played Categories before getting this pad for a review.

The 5 days a week paper mouse pad is helpful and useful, I can use it to write shopping lists, keep important appointments written down or just jot down random notes about blog posts I want to do or deadlines I need to meet. All the papers are connected together with a little bit of adhesive on the left hand side of the pad and along the top which makes the pad nice and sturdy and the pages are easy to peel off when you are done with each page. Knock Knock Stuff offers a large variety of products that each have fun themes and all at a reasonable price. You can use the coupon code MOON20 to get 20% off of your order.

One lucky winner will receive any Two products of their choice from Knock Knock Stuff.
 This giveaway is open to US Residents Only!

Trust Fund Beauty Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Trust Fund Beauty for the review free of charge.****

Over the last few months I've been painting my nails more frequently than I used to, Previously I painted my nails once every few months now I pain them about once a week. I am always looking for fun new colors, cute designs and polishes that have a good formula that doesn't clump or apply too thin. Trust Fund Beauty offers a polish that comes in a number of colors and they offer a polish that goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I recently received two bottle of Trust Fund Beauty to review, shown below you will find Man Crush Monday (purple) & Hollywood Hipster (robin egg blue/teal). Each Trust Fund Beauty polish is Cruelty free, Non-Toxic, & Vegan.

Aside from my slightly sloppy application job you can see how true to the bottle each color looks. I've found that with some brands you have to apply 3-5 coats before the nail color looks how it appears in the bottle, which isn't the case here with just one coat you can see how great this polish looks. You do not need to apply a second coat but I usually prefer to wear two so in the photos above I am wearing two coats. Out of the two shades I received to review my favorite is the Hollywood Hipster the color is a nice pastel that still gives enough pop for your nails to be noticed, the color is perfect for spring and summer. I found that the polish spread evenly and smoothly, there were no stray hairs from the brush and I didn't get any bubbles or lines in the polish. Each Trust Fund Beauty polish sells for $15 a bottle and they do ship Internationally.

Sephora Bundle Winner:

Rachel D.

Now onto what I know you are all waiting for the new beauty giveaway of the week! In two weeks my family and I will be leaving to go on vacation, this is our first real vacation as a family to somewhere out of state and I am quite excited for it to get here! In celebration of going on vacation I am hosting a fun summer beauty giveaway.

The summer heat can really dry out your skin so it is good to keep moisturized by not only staying hydrated but also using lotion. Before I put on lotion in the morning I like to use a bath sponge in the shower to help remove any dead skin which helps keep my skin looking its best. Part one of this mini beauty giveaway is a Body Benefits skin smoothing beauty massager which is shown above, one side is a bath sponge and the other side has small soft rubber spikes.

The second half of this price is a Pacifica Power of love coconut-infused mineral eye shadow palette, which is 100% vegan and cruelty free. The smell of coconuts reminds me of summer and the colors in this set remind me of sand at the beach and camping.

One lucky winner will receive a Body Benefits skin smoothing beauty massager & Pacifica Power of love coconut-infused mineral eye shadow palette. This is open world wide.

Kleenhanz Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Kleenhanz  for the review free of charge.****

It is always nice to have some sort of hand wipe handy in case of a mess, because let's face it at one point or another you will be in a situation where you need to clean your hands but you are no where near a bathroom. Baby wipes can be nice but I find most of them have an odd smell, and Hand sanitizer is easy to carry but again I dislike the smell plus it leaves my hands feeling dry.

A company called Kleenhanz sells a handwashing on-the-go wipe that is convenient to carry, doesn't have a foul odor and moisturizes your hands. I recently received a small box of their products to try and I have to admit that I love this product, I put one of the small containers in my car, a carry pouch in my husbands work bag since he works construction and it will come in handy, and one in my purse. I have two children who can get extremely messy and I don't want to use anything on their hands and faces that will leave a bad odor or leave their skin feeling dry. The Kleenhanz wipes are moist but not soaking wet, when you wipe your hands you can feel that it is cleaning every inch of your hands leaving you feeling refreshed and clean. They have a pleasant mild smell that is a little floral in smell, and leaves my hands feeling as if I used lotion on them. Shown above in the last image you can see all the yuck that I cleaned up with my Kleenhanz, the brown is my eyeliner and eyeshadow and the black is a sharpie pen I scribbled on my hand with to test out these wipes and as you can see they passed it left nothing behind.

These wipes are affordable, convenient and practice. You can buy a family pack of these hand wipes for $34 and it comes with 4 Kleenhanz® Large Canister - 70 count (4 x 70), 4 Kleenhanz® Small Canister - 30 count (4 x 30) & 8 Kleenhanz® On-The-Go Packs which I would say is a pretty good deal. Or you can buy just a single canister for $3-$8.
