Thermal Aid Bear and Small Sectional Heating and Cooling Packs Review/Giveaway

You know those days when your body is aching and you don't feel well? How about the days when your little ones have a fever and you just want to make everything better? There are several options to bring a temperature down, but the best way to do so without medicine or uncomfortable treatments is simply to stay hydrated and use a cooling pack. Cooling packs offer the same kind of relief from fever as heating packs offer from sore muscles. Sometimes it can be hard to find something suitable to use. Most people I know use a washcloth and hot water or ice (depending on if you want hot or cold), or a sock filled with rice in the microwave. It is always such a hassle trying to maintain the correct temperature. The washcloth has a way of getting your pillow wet and then keeping it from drying. This is where Thermal Aid comes into play. The versatile packs that they offer act as both a heat and cooling pack. Thermal Aid was kind enough to send me two different cooling/heating packs to review. I was sent the purple bear,  which is perfect for kids, and the small sectional which is great for adults. 

RAJ Imports Mirrored Sequined Kaftan Review

After a long winter that was packed snow and the horribly cold weather, I can't wait to be able to relax in the pool with my kids. When it is almost pool time, we start buying swim suits, towels, sunscreens, hats, sunglasses, coverups and more. Since I am pregnant, this summer's cover-ups are going to be my new best friends. That is why I am so excited to work with RAJ Imports. They were kind enough to send me a Mirrored Sequined Kaftan which can also be worn as a cover-up.

Raj creates the unique modern bohemian designs with Indian aesthetics. They offer tunics, ponchos, kaftans, yoga pants, skirts, dresses and more.

Art Style Design Living Apron Review

I love to cook and bake things for my family. Sometimes I will get home and be in nice clothes, I want to start cooking so an Apron is a better choice than changing my clothes. Aprons are a great way to protect clothes while we are making delicious treats or meals for our families. Of course, when I say apron I am not talking about simple white aprons you see in a restaurant, I need an apron that is as personalized as the rest of my kitchen. I am thrilled to share with you the company Art Style Design Living,  they offer super cute aprons that will likely get as much attention as the food you are making. 

Bananagrams Review

My family loves to use boardgames as a way to pass unwanted boredom and spend some quality time together. Video games can be fun, but for "together time" we prefer the more traditional fare of boardgames, card games, puzzles, and things like that. We are always looking for new games because you just never know when a good new game will come along that keeps you playing again and again. So I was very excited when Bananagrams offers to send a couple of their word/learning games for the whole family. During my review I was sent "Pairs in Pears" and the "Appletters".
There are several games offered: Bananagrams, Appletters, PAIRSinPEARS, Zip-It, Fruitominoes, Double Bananagrams, JUMBO Bananagrams, JUMBO Zip-It, Spanish Bananagrams, French Bananagrams, Italian Bananagrams, German Bananagrams, Norwegian Bananagrams, and Hebrew Bananagrams

Bricor Bravco PC Shower Head Review/Giveaway

My hubby and little boy love to take showers but sometimes, they take a long time. This can run up both the water and electric bills. I can understand wanting to soak in the shower, especially when you have had a long day and your body is aching. Luckily for my family, I have come across a company who offers shower heads that help with the problem of over using so much water when taking a shower. The Bricor company has sent me a shower head to test. Not only are these shower heads stylish but they are also great at offering a low flow shower stream that is really relaxing.

How does it work?
Water enters our patented VACUUM flow “booster” valve where it is aerated and compacted under pressure. Due to the intense force of the vacuum chamber, the aerated water “explodes” as it exits the shower head, creating a powerful shower stream at a very low flow rate (1.25 gallons per minute or less).

Bath & Body Works Body Lotion Capri Seaside Citrus Review

I am so happy that the warm beautiful weather is finally here and is staying around for good. I just love warm weather. I get to enjoy the breeze, the birds singing, all of the green and colorful elements and scents that show up when winter leaves. This is the time of year when I can feel like myself without feeling down about the cold weather. One thing I love to do after the nice weather comes around is switch up the lotions and fragrances that I was using during the cold weather. I look for scents that are fresh, breezy and relaxing. I am happy to share with you the new Capri Seaside Citrus body lotion from Bath & Body Works.
Enjoy a sparkling getaway to the blissful, sundrenched beaches of southern Italy with fresh citrus, juicy nectarine and orange flower immersed in our exclusive hydrating formula. Skin-softening Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E deliver all-day moisture, for the perfect everyday lotion.
