logo (48)

*Product received. Opinions are mine. I love makeup, that is no lie. I get makeup in the mail and I am like a kid on Christmas! It is so fun for me to open up those packages! Keeping myself nice looking, is very important to me. I don't want to look like a haggard housewife, by any means. Sure, some days I just don't feel it, but I always try to make sure I AT LEAST put on mascara and some lip gloss. But on days that I do feel like it, I go all out, even if I have nowhere to go! Love it ;) If you are a busy mama, like me, you don't have a ton of time to put on your makeup. So I was excited to see that Mia Mariu came out with a nice solution, in three EASY steps! It is the Mia Mariu's Create Your Perfect Canvas makeup and I am in love with it. Mia Mariu minerals offer you lightweight, long-lasting, non-pore blocking, breathable foundations that match your natural skin tone and create a healthy appearance.  All formulas provide superb buildable coverage and sun protection … [Read more...]

*Product was received, opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate link. Goodness it has been warm here lately! I am NOT complaining either, we love it! Every chance I get, I am on my deck soaking up the rays with my kids playing nearby. Up until a week or so ago, my little toddler only had a small kiddy pool to play in. But now, he has a new fun toy to play with when he is outside with his mama!! He received the Little Tikes Anchors Away Pirate Ship Water Table to check out and he loves this thing! When this came in the mail, it was my 8-year-old boy and 6-year-old girl who wanted to put it together! They actually did for the most part, but I did the screws. Soon, the water table was ready for baby (and bigger kids!) to play with. It comes with so many fun little add ons. Like a bucket (for pouring water on sissy's head!) or a squirter toy cannon or a floaty boat for the cute little people that it comes with. I was really impressed with all the … [Read more...]

Get Ready To Shake Those Tail Feathers With Rio 2!!! (Giveaway) #Rio2Insiders


*Product was received, opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate links. So, have you seen Rio 2 yet? We just did last week and have seen it about 4 more times since then! Whoosh!

My little one likes to dance and watch this movie too! This movie also has some fun, exciting bonus features and extras (nearly an hour and a half of it!!), everyone will enjoy. You will also get your groove on with two downloadable bonus songs from the RIO 2 soundtrack: “I Will Survive” and “Poisonous Love,” both performed by Gabi (Kristin Chenoweth) and Nigel (Jemaine Clement).

SoftShell Ice Cream Ball Ice Cream Maker!


*Product was received. Opinions are my neighbors. This post contains my personal affiliate links. Did you know that today is National Ice Cream Day? It is! Yay! Who doesn't love a good scoop of deliciously cold ice cream on a hot summer day (or any day of the year!). In honor of this great day, we were sent a SoftShell Ice Cream Ball Ice Cream Maker, to make our very own ice cream! Woot! I had my neighbor and her children review this for me. They were so excited to try this out! The went to the store, purchased the ingredients they wanted and soon they were shaking and moving that Ice Cream Ball. You just don't want to kick it! Once the ingredients were inside the ball they closed up the 'door' on it. My friend said it was hard to put the lid on it and it did leak a bit when it was being shaken. She said it took around 40 minutes of vigorous shaking, to get the ice cream the consistency she wanted it. Even then, she said, she had to put it in the freezer for … [Read more...]

Honeywell’s Quietest Table Fan (Review & Giveaway)


  *Product was received. Opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate links. It has been a very nice summer so far, in the Pacific Northwest. No complaining from me at all! In fact, for the past 5 days, we have been getting VERY hot weather. I absolutely love it and so do my kids! We do have central air in our home, but some rooms, for some reason, get the cold air quite a bit more than other rooms. So, for the rooms that do not get very much cool air, I have fans. At night, we also sleep with fans on, to circulate the air (and we like the sound). I was sent a fan from Honeywell and it is a very quite fan. It is called the Honeywell Quiet Set Table Fan. This fan comes fully assembled so that is nice! Just plug it in and feel the breeze on your cheeks (your facial cheeks..)! This fan is sleek-looking and looks great in any room. The fan rotates around the room for a nice, comfy breeze or you can just have the fan blowing in one spot, your … [Read more...]
