Home Spa 100% Natural Shower Spray Review/Giveaway


I don't know about you, but I have almost no personal time. The only "me" time I seem to get is when I take a shower or bath. I love a great-smelling shower and would love it if the shower's scent took me to a place that smells great and offered at least a brief moment of solitude in my life. Home Spa was kind enough to send me a couple of their 100% Natural Shower Sprays that offer what I am looking for when I take a shower. I was sent the Lavender and Eucalyptus fragrances, both which smell great.

HomeSpa offers four difference shower sprays: Eucalyptus, Lavender, Pink Grapefruit, and Tangerine. 

Maddyloo Review


With Mother's Day right around the corner, it is time to show all the women in our lives that we are thinking of them. Whether it's mom, sister, daughter, aunt, grandma, best friend... whoever it is. This is a cute way to let them know how much we care. Maddyloo Mini Heart Box is a cute and sweat way to share how much we are thinking of them. I had the chance to experience Maddyloo, and I can say that anyone would be thrilled with this.

The Maddyloo no-crease hair ties are the cutest solution for pulling your hair back with enough elastic to keep a ponytail in place, but wide enough to not leave a dent. From camouflage and metallic to rhinestone and tie dyed, Maddyloo has found a way to marry function with beautiful eye (or wrist) candy.  

Pro Tricks from Mally Roncal

Now that the warm weather is finally here and summer is quickly approaching, it’s not only time to spruce up your closet, but your eye makeup routine, too!

New eye shadow colors can go a long way towards updating your look for the changing seasons – without needing to overhaul your entire wardrobe. Whether you’re into a dark, smoky eye or bold pops of color, you’re sure to find your match with Mally Beauty’s NEW Pro-Tricks Eye Palette ($50, www.qvc.com). The best part? You can use these 12 gorgeous shades to create any custom look you want. 

These colors can be as intense or as light as you would like simply by using the unique shade modifiers – the light shade modifier turns any shade lighter, and the deep shade modifier makes any shade deeper.

First, apply the shadow base which will allow any color you use to be completely bullet proof. Then, apply the shadow of your choice. Use these shades all over the lid, in the crease, and even along the lower lash line for a smoldering look. Easily lighten or deepen with the shade modifiers right on top of the shadow.

Simone France Instant Radiance Review/Giveaway


My life, like so many others, can be very hectic at times. For starters, I am the mother of two kids with another one on the way. Every day there are errands to complete, the house to keep up with, doctor appointments, blogging and more. It is no wonder at times I will crash and forget to tend to my face regularly like I should. I do clean my face every night, it's just that sometimes it is hard to find the time to really exfoliate my face the way I used to. When I had the chance to work with Simone France on a product review on the Instant Radiance, I was thrilled. I had read so many nice things about their products and was really impressed with the reputation that they have built with their customers. So why not get back into a routine of doing more then just cleaning the makeup off my face? With Simone France, this is now a possibility.

Stay Safe With Jergens Natural Glow

There's no denying the evidence that tanning causes serious skin damage, including melanoma. Yet in spite of experts' warnings to stay out of the sun, wear SPF and skip tanning beds at all costs, countless Americans continue to go out in the sun without sunscreen. Most worryingly, even those who have been previously diagnosed with melanoma are disregarding warnings to be sun safe. According to research recently presented by Yale University researchers at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, more than a quarter of people who have had melanoma say they never use sunscreen. What's more, 2% admit they have used a tanning bed in the last year. These numbers aren't much better than the general population: just 17% of adults report always wearing sunscreen. 


Clearly, many Americans aren't willing to give up tanning at any cost--even if the bad habit causes a life-threatening cancer. That's why it's imperative to educate the public about safe alternatives like Jergens Natural Glow, which is now reformulated with breakthrough odor-reducing technology, delivering the same signature color and benefits that have set it apart from the beginning. The formula delivers natural-looking, healthy color without exposure to harmful UV rays. People who are risking their lives in pursuit of a tan need to know that there are safer ways to get the same glow--in fact, it's a matter of life or death.

 The new Jergens Natural Glow collection is formulated with unprecedented, exclusive technology to neutralize malodor in every single product in the line. The revamped natural glow collection includes:

 Jergens® Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer
Jergens® Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer
Jergens® Natural Glow Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 20
Jergens® Natural Glow 3 Days To Glow Moisturizer
Jergens® Natural Glow + Firming Daily Moisturizer
Jergens® Natural Glow + Protect Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 20
