ZeroWater Pitcher Review

Drinking water is an important, yet sometimes overlooked need that we all share. Most people probably don’t drink enough water. There will be many reasons why people don’t drink enough water, and those reasons will vary from person to person. For my family, we don’t drink enough water, and the reason is that our city water tastes like it was tapped straight from the bottom of a muddy pond!

There are a lot of filtration systems that you can choose from on the market today, and most will give you the same things. Relatively small apparatus that filters quickly and leaves your water largely unchanged. I find that most of these products work for only a small amount of time before needing their filters replaced. I had tried a couple of different filter systems and decided to give up and just pay for bottled water, even though I already pay a water bill each month.

Fun Bites Review

My kids can be really picky at times, like the moments when they don't want crust on their bread. Or you have the moments that you have to cut all of their foods up into eatable sizes because, lets face it, kids with knives cutting their food would not be great. So, that leaves the mommies and daddies cutting up the food so our kids will eat it. Of course, this can take a while and by the time you get all of your kids food done your food is left chilled a little. I was more then happy to do a review for FunBites, as it offers a fun and unique way to cut your kids food into fun bites sizes in a flash without a huge mess.

Lauren Nicole Gifts Review/Giveaway

I have always been a huge fan of jewelry and what all it can offer to your looks and style, and the good feelings it can inspire. One thing that I have found myself really leaning towards the last couple of years is monogrammed jewelry. When you come across a piece you can see that there was a lot of time and thought put into it. There are many places online nowadays that you can purchase monogrammed items, but in the process you can come across pieces that are really pricey and not to desirable in looks or quality. When I was given the chance to do a review for Lauren Nicole Gifts I was so excited, as I could tell right away that the items are very unique and each artful piece was very carefully put together.

Children's Bedding Boutique Review/Giveaway




With my little girl growing up on me, her room needed an upgrade to mature a little bit with her. Her room did not have much of a theme, just purple walls and a bedspread with different colored pokey-dots on it. This is the first time since she was a baby that I have really done her room in a full theme. I got cute little wall decorations, hot pink glittered paint for the walls, and of course the hot pink and zebra bedding. Of course I was missing some decorations that would really make the room pop and give it the extra themed touch. Children's Bedding Boutique, offers tons of themes for any little boy and girl and I was more then happy to work with the company to do a review on some amazing items that really make an eye-catching statement in her new decked-out room.

Uppercases Review



I just recently updated my little girls room in the theme of hot pink and zebra. Of course, there are a lot of things to purchase when you are updating a bedroom. There are a few things that I hadn't purchased yet, but knew I would get around to eventually. The one thing I still have not picked up yet is zebra sheet set, which my little girl is wanting badly. So, when I was given the chance to do a review for Uppercases, I was really excited on the selection and when I came across a case that had a zebra on it, I knew it was the perfect one to review.


UPPERCASES are 100% combed cotton pillowcases that are incredibly soft and comfortable. The colors are permanently embedded in the cotton fibers. There are 65 different personalized Uppercase designs. You are also able to do your own personalization up to 15 characters which include font, style, and color.

Ecowear Future Oxygen Pendants Tomoson Review/Giveaway


Every once in a while I come across an innovative new product that really surprises and triggers something in me. One product that has really touched me on the whole concept of going green is the Future Oxygen bracelets that your whole family are able to enjoy together. You may be wondering; how can the whole family enjoy it together and what role does oxygen play? These bracelets are very special, you can plant them and they will actually grow into trees. So when you plant a bracelet, you then get to watch it come to life as a family and help supply the world and its people with a little bit of oxygen.

The Forgiven Duke Book Review

Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon - the path of least resistance - Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton - the path less traveled by - on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.

Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.

The 5 Love Languages of Children Book Review/Giveaway

To be their best, children need to feel loved. But if you and your child speak different love languages, your affection might get lost in translation, affecting the child’s attitude, behavior, and development. Dr. Gary Chapman’s groundbreaking Five Love Languages series has helped millions of couples communicate love more clearly, and Dr. Ross Campbell M.D. has applied the innovative system to children as well. The 5 Love Languages of Children gives practical suggestions for learning how your children interpret love and creating a sense of security in which they can thrive.
I was recently chosen to do a review on the book “The Five Love Languages of Children”. Having two kids of my own, this caught me as an excellent opportunity to increase the love bonds between myself and them. I didn’t know at the time that I was about to learn an unflawed system of making my children feel more loved. Instead of “strengthening an already solid love” this book will teach you how to better communicate that love to your children, which will in turn make your child or children feel more loved.

Earth Day is April 22nd - Save Water with Soap & Glory 2-MINUTE RINSE

Earth Day is April 22nd! You are able to do your part to help our planet by conserving water with Soap & Glory 2-MINUTE RINSE!!!

Soap & Glory 2-MINUTE RINSE
At Soap & Glory we sell an awful lot of shower gel. So when a sustainability expert said that we would be facing a water shortage in the not so distant future. The average shower uses 2.51 gallons of water per minute, that being said it hit home that at Soap & Glory we should encourage people to shower responsibly. We got out a stopwatch and worked out that you only need about 2 minutes of running water to get washed, shampooed, conditioned and rinsed.  


An easy technique from Soap & Glory’s 2 minute expert:

-Step 1: 40 seconds of running water to warm up and get all over wet and turn the tap off

-Step 2: Scrub a handful of shampoo then your shower gel, rinse for 40 seconds and turn the tap off again

-Step 3: Massage on your hair conditioner and scrub your feet with a brush, rinse for 40 seconds, turn the tap off and your done!

Try with your fave Soap & Glory products ie: Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel or Clean or Girls Body Wash

At-Home Precision Foam Colour from John Frieda Review

It is really important to me to keep my hair colored the lovely blonde that I have grown to love. It is crazy to think that before I had kids my hair was naturally blonde, never had I ever dyed my hair or even had to think about it. After I had kids, my hair grew very dark. It came as such a shock to me, so I started to visit the salon to reclaim my former blondness. The price of those visits and the fact that I had to do it every 3-4 months quickly became an inconvenience. So recently, I have started dying my own hair in the comfort of my house. The money that this allowed me to save was immediate, but the quality of the dye suffered the transition. I had tried brand after brand; color after color and just could not find the one that matches exactly what I was looking for, or justified my decision to leave the salon. I was ready to give up and resume my visits to the salon, but then I was given the chance to do a review for the At-Home Precision Foam Colour from John Frieda, and the results I am now getting from this product were just what I was looking for, and couldn't have come at a better moment.

Sometimes my poor feet literally ache to be comfy. Recently a new pair of shoes has found its way into my collection, very quickly finding an important place among the ranks of my beloved footware. I am now the happy owner of a pair of Dawgs Spirit, I say "happy" as these shoes strike a near perfect balance between style and that "comfy factor" I mentioned before.

Exercise-induced Orgasms: More Common Than You Think!

 A new study reports that working out will actually leave you feeling sexy. This innovative study showed that exercise-induced orgasms are more than frequent than one might have thought!

3 Simple Steps For Sexy, Loose Waves

Sexy, loose waves with lots of body, volume and shine are perfect for breezy spring weather.  Celebrities are often seen wearing the look, but you do not need a professional stylist to get these gorgeous loose waves. All you need is a thermal protector, flat iron and shine serum to style at home. Check out the three simple steps below.



STEP 1: Before styling, spritz on a powerful thermal protector like Davines MELU Thermal Protecting Shield for $31, on to dry hair to prevent the damaging effects of high-heat styling. Vanessa Fernandez of Butterfly Studio Salon, says that “heat protecting sprays not only protect hair from the heat of the iron but to also create a shinier look.”


Flat irons create a more natural looking wave and will not leave a crimp on hair the way a curling iron clamp will do. ONE’s Crush 1 Inch Flat Iron for $80, delivers salon-like results while eliminating the appearance of unwanted static and frizz using tourmaline technology.



STEP 2: Begin by parting hair into sections and working layer by layer. Take a one inch section of hair, clamp the flat iron midway and twist your wrist inwards towards your head. Quickly slide the flat iron down the entire section of hair like you are straightening it. Maintain this position and then twist inwards once again at the ends to make sure they are not left straight. Work quickly to ensure that curls are loose and wavy. The longer time you spend sliding the iron over the hair, the tighter the curls will become. Continue on until all sections of your hair have been curled. 


STEP 3: Once the style is complete, add high shine and an extra barrier against frizz with Philip B. Anti-Frizz Formula 57 at $35, Lavender, Jojoba, Rice Bran and Soybean Oils lend hair a perfect dose of conditioning moisture that give lightweight definition, movement and shine without added weight. One drop is all you will need for a gorgeous frizz-free finish.
