Win Item of Choice from Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve!

One of my favorite luxuries in life is an amazing soap! I have found one that is wonderful, and perfect for the holiday season called Peppermint Twist from Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve. This soap smells amazing and is perfect for an early morning pick me up when I am dragging!! It leaves my skin super soft, and lathers into a rich sudsy lather. It smells amazing and the peppermint is invigorating. It is vegan and organic, and made with organic oil and herbs! After using this my skin feels hydrated and refreshed! The size of the bar is also huge! It is 7 ounces, which is a really large sized soap bar compared to most you purchase! I have been using it for a week now, and it still appears to be almost as large as it was when it arrived. I really feel like this one soap bar will last me a month or more! 

"The super refreshing and minty aroma is perfect for those early mornings when you need an invigorating shower or as a great boost to your fatigued body after a long hard day. Enriched with unrefined cocoa butter to create a soothing, moisturizing and rich lathering natural soap."


Crest Sensi Stop Strips



Do you have sensitive teeth? There are times when I eat something really cold and I feel it big time, then other times i’m ok. I never know when it will hit though. Luckily Crest hooked me up vie shespeaks and Walmart.


Great Pretenders Dragon or Princess Cape Giveaway



If you have followed this blog for any amount of time, you know two things about my oldest son. Number one is that he lives in his own head most of the time. His imagination is always running wild and many times he turns into a dinosaur! While a dragon is not quite a dinosaur, to my little boy it is close enough!
Whatever your child can imagine, the fantastic store "Great Pretenders" will probably be able to help! From Princess to Dragons, from Superheroes to pirates- great pretenders has it!! What I love most about this store, is the multi-function! My son now has a fantastic dragon costume to wear this Halloween and to his schools character dance (how many books have dragons in them?), but he also has a great dress up/pretend play costume at home! As you can see, he thoroughly enjoys the pretend play at home and totally gets into his dinosaur role!

Dorm Room Must haves


Now that school has been in session for a few weeks, everyone is getting used to their new routines. I think college is one of the biggest changes for kids. I remember dorms and they are not much bigger than a normal bedroom and you have 2 people living in them. I was looking around and came up with a few things that college kids should have in their dorms.



Win an item of Choice from Lyn Dorf! Perfect for Christmas!

The holidays are approaching and that means more time in the kitchen preparing a feast! That also means, you will probably be dressed in nicer clothes and trying to pull together a nice dinner. I have a couple cute aprons that I use for these occasions but my mom has just one old, worn out ugly thing she wears! For this reason I got her a present that I am going to give to her right before we prepare our feast! It is a beautiful Apron with Initial from Lyn Dorf.

Band Aid First Aid Kit



If you are like me you have a ton of band-aids, and medication all over the house, some in each bathroom. I tend to need something and spend way too long searching the house to find it. I was asked by Band-Aid to check out a wide variety of their products. It was great timing since I was meaning to put together a first aid kit so everything would be in one spot.


Sun Baby Cloth Diapers

I have found another wonderful brand of Pocket Cloth Diapers! Not only are these diapers wonderful in design and quality but they are very easy on your wallet! You can get an entire bundle that should last you most of your diapering days for about $60.  Sun Baby Diapers are amazing!  I was a little skeptical at first just because of the price, but I was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of the diaper that I was sent to try out. 

Laura Geller Balance and Brighten Review


As you know, I love my makeup! I love trying different looks and styles of makeup, but a great look is really dependent on a nice foundation. I kind of see it like a canvas that you can paint a portrait on. As you can see, my natural skin is very fair and very freckly. I kind of love my freckles so I do not like to cover them, but I do want to cover the ruddy complexion and acne I am prone to. For this reason, I love a great powdered foundation! I just received a fantastic one from Laura Geller called Balance and Brighten!
