PlaqClnz review and giveaway

PlaqClnz review and giveaway

I love my pets I really do... But some days their breath is enough to make my eyes cross!  I know you know what I'm talking about that horrible stinky "dog breath!"
With so few solutions, we are most of the time left to just deal with it.  I have been taking my dogs to get their teeth cleaned.  Lucy goes all the time because she has teeth issues, but it would nice to have something for that in-between time.  Well, now I do: 
PlaqClnz for pets!
So what is PlaqClnz?
PlaqClnz is an easy to use pet oral health care kit that treats and helps prevent bad breath, plaque, tartar and gingivitis.

What PlaqClnz does is goes straight to the source of bad breath which is plaque and tartar build up and eliminates both.  Not to mention that having good oral health will improve your dogs overall health.  Lots of bacteria can build up in their mouth, its so important to keep it clean in there.
PlaqClnz gel and spray make it so easy to keep our beloved pets mouth clean.
The spray you can simply spray right onto their gums.  The gel I found best to apply with a cotton ball.

It only takes about 30 seconds and will really improve your pets breath and oral health.  
I love my dogs and they depend on me to take care of them doing!  So 30 seconds is nothing if it will improve their dental health.

It has a pleasant smell and to be honest my dogs didn't even care that I sprayed it into their mouth....  As for taste  I have no clue!  LOL 

A few more great tips:

1.       Regular daily use maintains fresh breath and guards against plaque and tarter build-up
2.       Reduces the need for expensive vet visits for teeth scaling under anesthesia (risky, especially for older pets).

Also: the dog’s natural licking action will spread the Gel around … I did use a cotton ball when I applied.
           Remember to hold the pet’s head level or down …not up…when applying…. so it does not trickle down throat.

My Panty Box Review

My Panty Box Review 

Do you ever wish you could go to your mail box and get something besides bills?  Ever just wish you would have a reason to look forward to opening your mailbox?  Well ladies I have a surprise for you. 

 My Panty Box! 

I guess you are wondering what that is.  

Its a monthly subscription service to receive a panty every month at your home, wherever you live!  This isn't like most subscription boxes because you are not getting a sample you are getting unique items that can not be found in shops and is made with the highest quality.   How awesome would that be to open your mail box and get a super cute panties instead of your normal bills!

And speaking of mail.  If you are worried that someone will realize what you are getting in the mail  don't be!!

The panty you receive will come in a plain envelope, totally brand free for your privacy. 

I myself was even surprised I had no clue what was inside the white envelope in my mailbox!

The panty is different every month, and its a surprise.  You never know what you will be opening that month :).  I was super lucky and got my first pair the day before Valentine's day.  So I had something super cute to wear at me and the hubby's stay at home date.

I want to tell you a few of the perks and pros to My Panty Box 

~ Size: They will fit because you get to pick your size.  And each month that you are subscribed you will get a pair of cute/sexy panties in that size.

~ Style: You have 3 choices 1 is thongs, 2 is mix and 3 is mix with no thongs.  This was perfect because not everyone likes thongs.  So you get to control the style of you Panties.  And with the mix you never know what sexy surprise is going to be showing up at your house.

~ Subscribe: You have the chance to subscribe for 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 12 months.  The longer your subscription the more you save.  Then you can choose premier line, sexy line or basic line.  I love the fact you have so many choices it really does make you feel comfortable with what you are getting.

~ Shipping: As I mentioned earlier they come in a very discrete envelope so no worrying about the mailman knowing what your getting.  The other thing I want to tell you is My Panty Box ships world wide!!  Meaning anyone anywhere can enjoy :)

~ Surprise: The element of surprise was so much fun!  I couldn't wait to receive my first pair of panties!  When I seen them I was in love!  I'm a mom now and going shopping for cute panties just doesn't happen anymore!  I couldn't imagine taking my kids into a store to shop for these items.  

It felt so good to treat myself to My Panty Box.  To often us moms give and give its nice every once in awhile to get.  To do something just for myself!  And what could make us feel better then sexy cute undergarments! 

And I have to say I must have been slacking lately in that department because I think I put my hubby in shock when he seen the cute panties I was wearing :)!

I have signed up for the 3month subscription so you will get to see 2 more cute pairs of panties from My Panty Box....

But why not join me!  You can sign up right now and wait for your Panty surprise :)  Each month we can be surprised together!  Indulge a little :)

This is my affiliate link below:

So I know I gave you all the pros to joining My Panty Box I guess now you want the cons....  There is none I can't think of nothing wrong with getting a cute/sexy pair of Panties delivered to my house each month!!

SweetHeart VoxBox Review

SweetHeart VoxBox Review


So being part of the influenster community gives me the chance to try VoxBoxs.  Wondering a VoxBox is..
A box filled with amazing products that I get to try and fall in love with :).

The Sweetheart box contained products from
Olay Fresh Effects
Secret Clinical Strength
Not Your Mother's
SkinnyGirl Daily

I want to tell you a  bit about each of them.

Olay Fresh Effects (Va-Va-Vivid) Powered Contour Cleaning System
and Olay Fresh Effect (Shine, Shine Go Away!)
Shine Minimizing Cleanser.
These 2 products together gave my face the ultimate clean feeling!  It literally felt as if I just had a facial at the salon!  This gives your face that deep down clean after using it your pores will love you.   I couldn't believe how easy and simply it was to use and that I got such amazing results. 

Next up was Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response
I do use Secret Clinical Strength already and its a brand I trust and love.  Never before have I  tried the Serene Citrus scent.  So I was excited to try this from an already favorite brand of mine it smells so amazing and reminds me of warm summer days.  Clinical strength is formulated to protect us from all three causes of sweat.  A major cause of sweat is stress and this particular brand of Secret Clinical Strength targets stress induced sweat.  Trust me ladies for anyone who has the stressful job of being a mom you need this in your beauty drawer! (I love my kids but trust me they are very stressful some days!!)  Its nice to know Secret has me covered :)

Next I was treated with a 
Not your mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Slat Spray 
Perfect for making sexy beach looking hair!  My hair has a natural wave this spray helped give it that extra wind swept volume.  It has sea salt that really helps give my hair that extra umph.  I love it and so does my hair :)

Last and not least I got to try the super yummy
Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go Bars
This was made with delicious Greek yogurt and mouth watering blue berry and its only 180 calories!
Sorry my photo is of a half eaten bar....  The photo on the outside of the package had my mouth watering I ripped it open and started to eating right away and only after it was almost gone did I remember I had to take a photo to share with you all!
And let me tell you eating healthy never tasted so good.

I have discover some new favorite in the Voxbox Sweetheart box and I'm so happy to have the chance to share them with you!

Wummelbox review

Wummelbox review

My kids and I love doing crafts together.  My kids love putting stuff together and discovering just how things work.  And I love teaching them and seeing the pride on their face when they make something new.  The only issue is.... I'm crafted challenged!  Unless you give me a step by step I have no clue what I'm doing. I feel bad because my kids adore crafts....

Which is why I'm so excited to have discovered the WummelBox!

  Its a monthly arts & crafts box delivered straight to your door!  Each Wummelbox is packed full with 3-4 inspiring arts & crafts projects, including all the materials needed to complete your crafting adventure. Whether its scissors, glue or instruction booklets, it will all be there.  This was great I'm one of those people who start something and realize I don't have everything I need.  With Wummelbox I don't have to worry about that, the box literally has everything my kiddos need.  The box is suggested for kids aged 3 to 8.  They will benefit most for the crafts inside.
So I bet you are thinking this idea is genius who would think of something like this!  Well first a group of experts think up an idea, they then run it by parents, prototypes are made to be sure the idea works and then a group of highly critical kids test it!!  These kids get the final say if it makes it to the box or not!  So you know everything in you box is something kids love :). 

Something I really liked about the box is the fact my son had so many questions!  Not only were we doing a craft he was learning.  He wanted to know why a certain thing spun or how the light was reflected.  I loved working with him and teaching him all these things.

My son was able to review the Color and Light box it had 3 crafts:

Windcatcher:  This was so easy to make and my son loved all the different colors!  He hung this in his room and shows everyone who comes to my house.  He is so proud of the fact he made something so neat.
I did have 1 issue with this craft, the wooden pieces did keep coming out.  I eventually had to get my hot glue gun and glue them so they would stay in place.

Spin-top: The spin-top was also great for learning colors.  My little guy colored the paper top and then I taught him how to spin it so we could watch all the colors mix together. 

Kaleidoscope: This was my sons favorite!  He loved learning why the colors were reflected he spent hours looking at the sparkling colors.  And he really enjoyed seeing how light changed the effect of the items inside.
The box was so much fun and my kids loved putting these crafts together.  I only had 2 issues like I said up top in the Windcatcher the wooden pieces did keep falling out...  And the box is advertised as having everything you need, but for the Kaleidoscope I needed scissors to cut out the yellow paper and they weren't included.  Not that it was a big deal I do have scissors at my house.  I just wanted to mention it.

This is only one of the boxes they have each month they change and your kids can experience a new and exciting craft box!

Children's Advil

Children's Advil

Being a mom is my greatest accomplishment, I'm sure any parent can relate to this.  We watch our children grow and each milestone brings joy to our hearts.  Their first word we clap.  Their first step we cheer.  The first tooth we take photos.  The first time they laugh we laugh with them. We watch it all and we become excited, proud even!  We write it down in little baby diaries, call our family,  we take way more photos then necessary and yet always find a reason to take one more  We cherish these memories for the rest of our life.
  There is one first though that no parent likes.... The first fever!  Having our little ones being sick is absolutely terrifying.  When my oldest was first born I was the crazy mom who called the doctor because my baby had the hiccups!  So I bet you can imagine what I was like when Brandon got his first fever....  With Quinn I calmed down a bit.  Not much my husband still has to pull the phone out of my hand sometimes because I want to call the doctor for every bump or weird sound.

The point is babies and fevers are a very stressful combination.  Its okay though because there is help....
Nothing relieves Fever Faster!  And with up to 8 hours of relief from just one dose its a  must have item for all parent's medicine cabinets.  Nothing relieves fever quicker or keeps it down longer.  The active ingredient in Children's Advil is ibuprofen and that happens to be the number one pediatrician recommended fever/pain reducer.

And its a brand that grows with your baby.  Infants Advil is for babies ages 6-23 months, Children's Advil is for kids 2-11 years old and Jr. Strength Advil is for kids ages 6-11 years old.
Children's Advil is available in great flavors such as grape, Blue raspberry, fruit and dye-free white grape.  Also its available in grape chewables and easy to swallow tablets.
(The Infants Advil drops are also available in dye-free white grape.)

In order for any medicine to work properly though you must make sure your giving your baby/child the proper dosage!  The Advil website has a Helpful resources page you may want to check out.  When  Advil is used as directed parents can feel confident knowing they are giving their little ones a safe and effective fever/pain reliever.
Advil provided me with a super cute gift set.  Ironically both my kids and I are sick right now.  To be honest this time of the year I feel like I'm always sick!
  This gift set couldn't have come at a better time.  The Children's Advil really helped my little guys.  Relieving both their fever and pain.  
  As soon as they get better we are going to get out our photos and put that super cute picture frame to use!

Being sick is stressful Advil is here to help.  Its a brand I have personally trusted since my kids were babies.  I have tried other brands and know for a fact Advil works the best for my kids.

If you want to learn more please see my links below:

Update Bart's Cookies

Tomorrow is the last day to enter the Bart's Cookies giveaway!!

But I wanted to post an update today!  If you had the chance to read my first review you will notice I said my hubby never got to try them, because the kids and I ate them so fast :)
Also you will notice I compared them to my grandmothers cookies.

Well I had the chance to eat more Bart's Cookies and I knew that this time I had to right 2 wrongs....
First My hubby HAD to try them I felt so bad for the man.
Here me and the kids are going on about these amazing cookies and the poor guy didn't even get to look at them!

Well he tried them now and the man is in LOVE!!  He did make the fatal error of asking me why my cookies never taste this good.....  He is a man so he doesn't realize you don't ask a woman these sort of questions.  LOL But my husband was really and truly impressed with how yummy they are.  He now understands what me and the kids were talking about.

And next these cookies had the ultimate test..
My nanny got to try them!
Now if you remember from my original review my grandmother was a baker!  That was her lively hood she made cookies, cakes, pies and all sorts of treats for a living.  Her treats have been a huge part of my life.  My wedding cake was even made by my Grandmother.  I actually have a photo I can post of my wedding cake that she made for me :)!

So taking a cookie to her was the ultimate test...

The second she tried one of Bart's Cookies she got a huge smile on her face.  And she told me this is the way a cookie is suppose to taste.  She then went on to explain texture and measuring the ingredients right so none over powered the rest....  I don't understand any of that, but I was so proud to share this with her.  My grandmother played such a whole role in my life.  Her kitchen was one of my favorite places as a child.  The woman knows her stuff, when my grandmother says a cookie is good she means it!!  :)

So trust me when I say you do not want to miss the Bart's Cookie giveaway!!  See the link at the top of the page.

NAAT Brazilian Keratin Review


nuNAAT NAAT Brazilian Keratin Review

I'm a mom :)  I'm sure you are all aware of that fact by now, but the reason I want to talk about being a mom today is my hair.  I bet some of you are thinking... What is this woman talking about!?!?!  Well let me explain since becoming a mom I have very little time to do anything!  My showers are quick my prep time even quicker.  And my poor hair has been neglected for the past several years.  And after so much blow drying and straightening my hair is feeling the pain!
Sadly to say my hair just doesn't have its former shine or luster!  I don't have hours to spend on my hair so to be honest I need something quick and easy to use.  And I'm sure I'm not the only mom!

Which is why I was thrilled to have the chance to use nuNAAT NAAT Brazilian Keratin hair products!  These are products I already use everyday such as shampoo, conditioner, and shine serum. The only difference is that nuNAAT Naat Brazilian Keratin has that wow factor that my previous products have been missing!
NAAT Brazilian Keratin restores and intensifies your hair's nutritional balance, this product knows your hair.  After using the product my hair was so smooth and strong, I hate brushing my hair I always have so much breakage!  After using the Naat Brazilian products I noticed my hair was so much stronger and held up so much better against its arch nemesis the brush!  I read on their website that the Brazilian Keratin formula stays in your hair longer it is more resistant to rinsing and because of this hair has more vibrancy and hydration giving it a natural healthy shine!
The Brazilian Keratin kit contains 5 products
Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Mask, Leave-In conditioner, and Shine Serum. 
After I tell you a bit about the products I want to show you my results...  Because the truth is I can type until my fingers hurt, but I think you will be more impressed with actually seeing just how amazingly these products work.
The shampoo and conditioner are deep moisturizing, they really give your hair that super soft feel.  The hair mask can be used in place of conditioner every 1 to 2 weeks, this is a deep conditioner it hydrates and revives hair fibers leaving you hair looking and feeling healthy!  The leave in conditioner is a quick way to give your hair that softness you simply put it in your hair before blow drying, brush it through, style your hair as normal and you are good to go!  So easy to use and yet the effects are so amazing!  Last, but not least is the hair serum.  Not only does this give your hair a beautiful salon shine it also protects your hair!  I love it, a little goes really far with this serum!

After several days of using this products my hair feels so healthy and I have gotten so many compliments on how shiny and alive it looks!  I didn't have to spend hours in a salon I simply had to keep doing what I already do....  Just now I use products that work for me and give my hair the care it needs!

Now onto the results!! :)

 I know your thinking why is this crazy woman showing us a photo of her pulling her own hair!  I wanted to show you how much stronger my hair is.  Normally a lot of my hair would break if I pulled it out like this, but since using the Brazilian Keratin hair products my hair is so much stronger!  I love it :)

 This is a closer view at the ends of my hair I'm sure you can see they look softer.  Normally my hair is dried out at the bottom and doesn't have the healthy shiny look that it has now.

And last but not least a side view.  Again I'm not sure how well the photo emphasis the fact my hair has so much more shine and softness!  It looks and feels healthy and I absolutely love my Brazilian Keratin products!

All the products I used can be found right here:

You can also connect with them on facebook and twitter.
And as always feel free to ask me any question about my experience!

Potty Cover review and Giveaway


Potty Cover review and Giveaway


PottyCover is a disposable toilet seat cover for children that covers the sides and the front of the toilet.  Helping to keep away germs at public rest-rooms.  I'm sure any parent knows that its so hard to take a child into a public bathroom you just never know what germs are lurking in there!  My kids never seem to keep their hands to themselves either!  That is why I love the fact the potty cover protects such a large area!  It makes me feel safer taking my little guys into the bathroom!
 It is made of a non-woven fabric coated with a layer of plastic, creating a waterproof barrier between the toilet and your child.  So no yucky mess can leak through!
I'm sure you have seen other products like the Potty cover, but the things with the potty cover is it  has the largest coverage of all seat covers out there!   As if that wasn't enough each seat cover is individually packaged in a small easy to open bag that makes it  super convenient to always keep one or two in a purse!  As a mom who knows how stressful taking kids to the bathroom in public is I'm all for anything that makes it easier!  Not only can Potty Cover be used by kids, but I have used them too!  So they are both adult and kid friendly!

I put a few of these in my purse and take them every where I go!  The truth is you really never know when you may need one.  I'm so happy to add that extra protection for my kids :).

Outburst Energy Bites review and giveaway

Outburst Energy Bites review and giveaway


Outburst Energy Bites is a new line of chocolate-covered energy bites making your caffeine fix sweet!  They are a great alternative to other energy sources.  Especially if you are looking to cut soda and coffee from your diet but don't want to spend a lot of money with a different caffeine/energy alternative!  Not to mention they have less calories and sugar then the other products.  Oh and did I mention they are chocolate covered!!
  I love the fact they come in small bites so they can be taken anywhere at anytime!  
They come in  three flavors:
Chocolate Peanut
Chocolate Mint
These are perfect to put into my purse.  I could simply pop them into my mouth whenever I needed  a pick me up.  And they tasted great compared to other energy sources I've tried in the past.  My husband stuck them in his pocket and took them to work.  He can't just stop during the day to get an energy drink.  So it was great that he could slip these into his pocket and continue about his day.
And they work!  Both my hubby and I agree we had more energy after taking them :).

Outburst Energy Bites provide a mix of Caffeine, Taurine and B-Vitamins blended into a small chocolate bite.  Taurine has been shown to improve athletic and mental performance.  Outburst Energy Bites also contain Vitamins B-6 and B-12 and offer approximately 20 mg of caffeine per bite.  Each Energy Bite contains less than 12 calories. Four Outburst Energy Bites would be the same as drinking one standard cup of coffee.

Herr's review

Herr's Review

How many times have you gone into the chip aisle and realized you had no clue which brand to buy.  With so many different brands its really hard to pick.  
 Wouldn't it be nice to have a brand you can trust?  A brand who has been around for awhile so the obviously know what they are doing?
Herr's has been in the potato chip business since 1946!  Their company has grown quite a bit since then, but the fact they been around that long really proves they know what they are doing!  

Not only do they make amazing chip products they also give back!  Herr's  financially supports over 1,000 charity organizations!

So why choose Herr's you may be thinking??
Herr's has so many choices for your snacking needs!  Such as chips, pretzels, cheese curls, pop corn, corn chips, onion rings, pork rinds, and they even make salsa!  Not only do they make all these different products, but they also have so many flavors to choose from!  There is literally something for everyone.

My family was personally able to pick 5 products to try
And the timing to try these product was perfect...  We got to try them on Super Bowl Sunday!  Even though I could careless about either team (Fingers crossed for the Colts next year) I was still excited to have great food for everyone :)
 Herr's does offer so many choices, but these are the 5 products I chosen for my family.
 My hubby and brother's favorite chips are Salt and Vinegar chips.  And they both love Herr's brand.  They finished the whole bag their self :).  Herr's Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips contain essential nutrients, such as vitamin C and potassium.   They are cooked in corn and/or cottonseed oils, the chips are packed in special foil-like bags to help retain the vitamin C also to help maintain freshness and crispiness. 
 I think everyone loves Sour Cream and Onion chips and my family is no different.  To be honest in my family its not a real party unless you have a great Sour cream and onion chip.  They really enjoyed Herr's brand.  With every bite you could taste the delicious sour cream! 
 This was our first time trying Herr's Kettle cook chips.  They were so good!  Nice and crisp and they had that perfect kettle cook to them!  I think I may have found my new favorite  :)  These are handcooked in small batches in pure vegetable oil and sprinkled with just the right amount of flavor.  They also have the perfect thickness making them so tasty!!
The Lattice Cut potato chips classic kettle cooked in sea salt.  I love the criss crossed shape of these chips they were perfect for dipping.  These tasted different from any chip I tried before.  My whole family was impressed we have several types of dips and these worked perfect with each one.

 I'm sure anyone who reads my blog knows I have 2 amazing little boys.  So of course I had to get them the Baked Cheese Curls, they're made with only the finest ingredients and contain no added preservatives.  My little guys love them :).  Not to mention how amazed Quinn was by Chipper the little guy on the bag.  

My family really enjoyed Herr's chips and I know your family will too!  And with so many products and flavors to choose from there will be something for everyone!

The GearGeads Car Prize Pack Giveaway

Welcome to the GearHeads Giveaway

Today the Simply Me blog is helping to promte the GearHeads car giveaway!  This giveaway made me think about my first car...  A horrible pink death trap.  It was so loud and it hardly got over 40 MPH.  When I would park the thing it made 3 loud put noises.  One time I hit a speed bump and the rear view mirror fell off.   The radio would go on at random....  My friend still swears to this day a ghost was turning it on.  But even with all those flaws to a 17 year old me it was the best thing in the world :).  A now 25 year old me looks back and thinks why did I ever drive something so horrible.
lol Have fun entering the GearHeads giveaway and good luck :)!!

Oh and feel free to tell me about your first car.
