Hydrate with Juice Beauty - Review

Image
I have reviewed Juice Beauty before and I have never had anything but great things to say about them... Once again, Juice Beauty has impressed me!

Not only do they have an ARRAY of gift ideas for all on your list...
The way they package the gift sets is just too cute!

I was able to review the "Hydrate Your Holidays" kit. LOVE IT. This gift set comes with the Green Apple Hydration Mask.(Use it up to three times a week... Leaves your face replenished and hydrated!) It also comes with a Hydrating Mist. (Use this throughout the day to keep feeling fresh!)
Now, I was able to review this set and I love it.. At $36 you really can not beat it! It also comes packaged in this cute little silver "lunch" box looking tote. I know Broxton will love this to hold his different knick knacks in!!!!


Juice Beauty also has several other gift sets...
Just perfect for holidays!
Take a peek at all they offer!!!!!

Gourmet Gift Baskets - Review and Giveaway

Image
Do you love gift baskets as much as I do?Have you heard of Gourmet Gift Baskets?
We were able to review a Christmas Gift Basket and let me tell you. YUMMY!

We got the box and Broxton had to play the drums on it for a minute while I got the camera. The gift basket was nicely packaged with PLENTY of bubble wrap! Broxton loved it as he got something to play with. I liked it since that meant NOTHING was messed up. I knew I had to get a picture of it all together, as that would not last too long. Doesn't it look INVITING?
And that was all she wrote!
We opened it up... And DUG IN!
OH, guess you want to know what we were snacking on!
Ingredients: · Salted Peanuts by Feridies - 9 oz. - · Seasoned Dipping Pretzels by East Shore Co. - 4 oz. - · Raspberry Honey Mustard Pretzel Dip by Robert Rothschild Farm - 7.8 oz. - · Gingerbread Cookies by Too Good Gourmet - 7 oz. - · Butter Toffee Shortbread Cookies by Too Good Gourmet - 2 oz. - · Vanilla Wafer Rolls by Dolcetto - 14.1 oz. - · Dark Chocolate Nonpare…

Mr. Zippy to the rescue! Review

Image
I have been reviewing the Mr. Zippy bib... and we FINALLY have pictures to show you!
Broxton is not one for wearing a bib... Never really has been. As soon as he learned he was strong enough to yank it off.... We started having messy clothes. Now, he is much better at eating, as that is the reward for not wearing the bib... Do not get me wrong, we still have our days...
BUT, we are getting ready to have a little art area... and he WILL WEAR something to keep the clothes clean... OR NO ART. :)
Not to be mean, but hello... clothes cost money!

Luckily for us... Mr. Zippy is our solution!

Have you heard of Mr. Zippy? Let me share...
Mr. Zippy is a bib that is like a normal bib... but is is LONG- It can either be zipped up to be one piece... or unzipped to cover each leg.
What makes that easy is that there is a little strap that goes around each leg to keep it secure. Spaghetti nights no longer equal messy clothes!!!!

I tried to get a few different pictures to show you what I mean... Here he is in the h…

Featuring... Norah Jones - CD Review

Image
I am a country girl... Marc loves a little of everything. But, he really, REALLY enjoys Norah Jones. When I had the opportunity to review her newest C.D., I immediately said yes!
I knew Marc would love it... and I wanted to see what all she had to offer.
Boy, was I blown away! Norah Jones has an AMAZING voice!
I was totally surprised and now I see why. I think I might be a bit spoiled now too... Seeing that this C.D. has her paired up with other artists, I got to experience every side of her! (Well, at least I feel I did.)
The C.D. track list:
1. Love Me – The Little Willies 2. Virginia Moon – The Foo Fighters featuring NorahJones 3. Turn Them – Sean Bones featuring NorahJones 4. Baby It's Cold Outside – Willie Nelson featuring NorahJones 5. Bull Rider – NorahJones and Sasha Dobson 6. Ruler Of My Heart – Dirty Dozen Brass Band featuring NorahJones 7. The Best Part – El Madmo 8. Take Off Your Cool – OutKast featuring NorahJones 9. Life Is Better – Q-Tip featuring NorahJones 10. Soon The New Day – Tali…

Aloha Friday - # 63

Image
Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.
My question: Do you have a HOLIDAY MOVIE you watch every year?
My answer:
We want to start a tradition with Broxton...
I was thinking Charlie Brown Christmas.

Any other suggestions?
I am all about Movies at night leading up to Christmas!!!!!

Little Twig - Review

Image
Broxton had the chance to try out the Little Twig Product line.I have to say, the EXTRA MILD UNSCENTED was a great option. I used a little and of course, I had to see if I smelled anything. Although it says it is unscented, I could smell a hint of something. (That was with me holding it up to my nose!) I really liked the way the baby wash lathered up on his washcloth. I feel as though some of the baby products do not lather as well as others and I personally like the bubbles because I know he does. The other thing I really liked about this was the fact that you can also use it to wash their hair. It left Broxton's hair and skin super soft!!!
All of their baby washes come with the same scent for their lotions as well. I rubbed this in on Broxton and he loved it just as much as I did. It absorbed without leaving any greasy feeling and I used a little on my hands too!!!
We also received a sample of the Calming Lavender. Besides smelling great and relaxing...
It also worked just as great as the Mi…

Hershey's Helps My Holidays!!!!! GIVEAWAY

Image
I do not know how many of you love chocolate...but we do!
I mean, we not only love it... We LOVE it! That is why I am so excited to tell you about Hershey's and the Holiday candy that they have available. One of my lucky readers is going to win a STOCKING FULL OF GOODNESS! Yep! That is right!
No matter if you are winning it for you or to share...
There is plenty of candy in there!

My mom has a candy dish that she puts candy in for visitors (and all of us!)
You could add the Hershey's candy in there for a little extra decoration!

Did you know that one survey said that 89 percent of adults will include candy in their holiday celebrations?! Wow, that is a good amount and I know we were not surveyed! :)

My grandaddy is pretty hard to buy for... Guess what part of his Christmas gift from us is? Hershey's Pot of Gold Chocolates!
They have such a variety as well!
We got him the Premium Assortment and the Caramel Variety Pack. I mean, when you do not need or want anything, why not treat them t…

Plaqueworks for treasured memories - UPDATED with discount code

Image
You have no idea the facial expression I made when I opened up THE BOX.Yes, THE box came. It was in a nice, big, LOUD box. And then I opened it..
My PlaqueWorks is here!
It is beautiful. Can I be honest?
I thought it was going to be like one of those employee of the month plaques. It wasn't!

This is going to be hung up in our room!
It is gorgeous.
So, what is is? Right!
Well, I was offered a great opportunity to review a "PlaqueWorks" print. The process was super easy...
The selection, not so much.
I wanted to order several of them... (and we eventually will) I decided on one of Marc and I.
I selected my background... Then I found the picture I wanted to upload. Next, I uploaded it.
After that, I figured out what quote I wanted to go with. The "theme" of our wedding was " Live, Love, Laugh." So, guess what? That is what I went with.
The picture I chose was from the night before our wedding. At the after rehearsal dinner after party! (Yes, we did it up right!)
Now........…

Guardsman - Help with the Holidays!!!!

Image
How great is this?
I just received a WONDERFUL array of Guardsman Products!!!

Should I make you jealous and tell you what all I got? :)
Well, when I opened the box... I was greeted with so many different things!
There was:
Wood Cleaner Wood Polish Fabric Protector Leather Cleaner Leather Protector Sudsless Upholstery Cleaner Water Ring Remover The Furniture Touch Up Markers
Well, since I am always honest in my posts... I had NEVER heard of any of these products... EXCEPT the Furniture Touch Up Markers.
Now, these are amazing!
When we moved, pretty much ALL of our furniture got banged up a little here and there...
Which resulted in needing to be touched up. We searched all over for these markers (they were at Wal-Mart the whole time, just no one knew where to tell us to look!) You just touch up the spot on your furniture... and then you can barely notice there was ever anything wrong. You know, some might not notice at all, but since I knew it was messed up, I can seem to find it!
I am excited to try the w…

Eczema? Try Exederm.

Image
I have told you about Broxton having eczema before.Luckily for us, it just flares up from time to time. Because of that...
We always have lotions and creams for whenever a flare up happens.
I was sent the Exederm Eczema baby Lotion for us to review. I did notice that he was getting a bit dryer than normal. I did not know if it was because of the temperature changing... or if it was a flare up... But, I did decide it was time to try the Exederm.
No Fragrance
No Color or Dyes
NoParabens
No Lanolin
NoSLS or SLES
No Propylene Glycol
No Formaldehyde
NoPhthalates
The lotion has a very neutral smell...
Meaning, you can not smell anything!
As you know, fragrances in the lotions and washes are not friends with eczema... This lotion goes on and seems to absorb pretty fast. There is no mediciney smell like you would think.
Overall, we like it. The lotion does not feel all oily and greasy... And, the dryness of Broxton's skin quickly vanished and we had a smiling healthy baby boy!

We also were able to review the…

Ebeanstalk - fun toys for all ages - Review

Image
Remember a bit ago when I posted telling you about ebeanstalk? Well, they just sent Broxton a fun toy for us to tell you about! Now, Broxton has toys for all ages and we were sent a fun "hands on" baby toy! Now, this is considered a "baby toy", but with Broxton being almost two, I think it fit us perfectly. What did we get?
We were sent the Sticker Art.
With the Sticker Art, you receive 4 "frames." They are plastic and very cute. They actually remind me of the Popsicle stick frames you used to make, but they are out of plastic. Add to it that at the bottom, it has a place for you to put the name of the "artist."
Also included is 4 "mats" to do your art on. Each mat includes stickers to go with it.
The mats all have a theme.

We chose to do the "sugar cookie" mat first. Included in the sugar cookie packet is the mat with several cookies on it. Then, a sticker sheet. The sticker sheet contained all sorts of fun toppings to put on the cookie…

Scandle - Great gift or stocking stuffer!!! Review

Image
I have told you about Scandle before...But I wanted to share with you the Shimmering Lotion Candle.
This candle is great as a gift... or a stocking stuffer... You can even buy several and cross several names off your list!
This candle is great!

I was sent the Shimmering Lotion Candle in Warm Sugar Vanilla for review. Now, for some reason...
I immediately thought of popcorn when I smelled it... Not really sure why!
I asked Marc what scent he thought it was and he was quick to say Vanilla. (I guess I could be going crazy!)

We lit the candle and our house took on a great vanilla aroma. I let the candle burn for a bit... and then I had to test out the "shimmering" effect. Um, YEP! It shimmers!
I asked Marc if he noticed anything and he said he noticed that it was really shiny!
As a side note... I was just testing for the review... and Broxton watched me pour it on Marc's back. He IMMEDIATELY took his shirt off for me to pour some on him!
:) I put a little on him and rubbed it in really good …

Episencial Mommy Party

Image
I had high hopes for my Episencial Mommy Party... But, one thing lead to another and it did not work out the way I planned. No worries though, my next party will be a million times better!

The great thing about being able to host the Episencial Mommy Party was two things... One, I got to learn all about the Episencial Product line. The second thing? I got to share with 10 other great moms!

Now, not only does Broxton get to take a fun bubble bath with Episencial Sweet Dreams Bubble Bath... but all of his friends do to!!!
While sharing the Episencial Bubble bath with Broxtons friends, we learned of several great bath time fun times that all kids enjoy!
We ALL know that kids of all ages enjoy BUBBLES!!!!!
How fun is that?
You can play with them...
Make yourself a beard, a hat... There are so many things you can do!
You can even blow them and scatter them everywhere!

Besides the great BUBBLES, we learned that everyone enjoys SPLASHING and all the water going everywhere! It might be messy, but it sure…
