Febreze Hawaiian Aloha Carpet Deodorizing Powder Review

With two kids, my husband, and myself, our floors see a lot of traffic daily. Sometimes I end up running the sweeper three or four times throughout the day because you never know when a cookie or chip is going to get broke and leave its mess behind. The one thing I have found is no matter how much I clean messes, the carpet tends to develop a smell that has to be covered up with spray, and always returns. Unless you have the time to deep clean your carpet weekly which I, unfortunately, do not. You have to keep spraying, pay someone to take care of if, or just deal with the smell. Luckily, there is a great product that I had the chance to review. I was sent Febreze Hawaiian Aloha Carpet Deodorizing Powder ($3.49) from Bissell

Strawesome Review/Giveaway

Recently I was given the opportunity to work with Strawesome. Strawesome is a company that offers glass straws, of which I am personally a huge fan. Not only do they help save you money, but they also are reusable, and cut down on the amounts of plastic trash that is put into landfills on a daily basis. Aside from being good for the environment and saving money, they are really cool looking too. I was sent a very cute and girly glass straw from the Design collection for my little girl and I to use and enjoy. 
Here are some facts on these unique glass drinking straws:

New Miracle Skin Transformer Acne Control ~ Plus Review

Introducing the First Ever Tinted Complexion Enhancer for Acne Prone Skin
New Miracle Skin Transformer Acne Control

The first ever acne treatment to fight “pimple memory,” or recurring breakouts in the same spot.  Smart salicylic acid, anti-microbial peptides, marine extracts and vitamin B3 treat work together to heal and prevent breakouts now and in the future.

This lightweight, oil-free formula controls shine and sebum, leaving a smooth, matte, flawless finish as it hydrates, firms and calms skin.  Available in five shades: Translucent, Light, Medium, Tan and Dark.  
Acne Control works to:
~Reduce oil production
~Sooth redness and irritation
~Prevent future breakouts
~Cover the appearance of acne marks
~Reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
~Even skin tone and texture

I am so happy that I had the chance to review this product. It has literally come at the best time. With summer here there are days of hot weather and humidity which can cause breakouts. Not to mention the pregnancy hormones. When I first received the Miracle Skin Transformer Acne Control, I could not wait to see how well it truly worked. I love the fact that it not only offers acne control but also other issues that I may be dealing with. This product helps with redness, irritation, fine lines, and wrinkles, evens your skin tone & texture, reduces oil, and yes helps with breakouts and future breakouts. I mean this is a lot offered by one product. 

When I first applied the Miracle Skin Transformer Acne Control, I was happy with how well this product matched up with my skin tone. This product blended into my skin very nicely and the added tint was nice. I love that with this product my face did not look oily. Within the week or so of using this product, I have noticed my breakouts are not as bad. Typically, I do not have that big of a problem but pregnancy and summer heat it has gotten worse than normal. This product has really helped with my blemishes and the results have been nice.

Where to purchase: $48 / Available at Sephora stores nationwide and online via www.sephora.com and www.miracleskintransformer.com.

Kaleidoscopes To You Review

Do you remember the first time you ever looked into a kaleidoscope? If it was when you were a kid, it was probably one of the coolest things you had seen. Growing up has not changed that for me. My kids have the same fascination with Kaleidoscopes. They like them just as much as I do. Unfortunately, all of the tech-related gadgets have made many things, such as the kaleidoscope, a forgotten relic. They are still out there, and some are very nice. I was sent a Padauk Teleidoscope ($65.) from Kaleidoscopes To You to review. This is a top quality kaleidoscope made from wood, and pieced together to perfection.
