BlueLounge Nest Tablet and Mobile Media Device Stand review

BlueLounge Nest Tablet and Mobile Media Device Stand review 

I'm sure we all have that one device that just doesn't have a place in our home.  No matter where we put the thing its just in the way!  Mine happens to be my NOOK.  I try to put it with my paperback books, but whenever I get a book out the thing is always on the verge of falling not to mention the UBS cable always comes flying out.  I thought about sticking it on my dresser, but I forget about it and sit stuff on top of it!  And then I have to go looking understand for it. If the the NOOK was standing up I would never miss it and wouldn't accidentally put stuff on top of it....  I now have that something and being a dresser mishap is a thing of the past for my NOOK.  The Blue Lounge Nest Tablet and Mobile Media Device stand is perfect not only can I store my nook on the stand there is a back try to put the UBS charger!!  

I can also have it standing up when I'm playing my favorite games (Angry Birds)!!  I love my new stand a once in the way NOOK now looks cute and functional in its own stand!
The stand is compatible with so many devices e-readers. iPad and mobile phones are just a few.
If you need room on your desk or in my case dresser this is the perfect thing!

And since we are talking about Devices I have to mention the Juicebar portable mini charger!!  It charges any small mobile device, including cell phones, game consoles, and portable media devices!  Wouldn't it be nice to not have to worry about a dead cell phone every time the power goes out!  Or if you are going on a long car ride you can power up your devices right in the car!

I think both devices are a must have item for anyone!!

The Willow Store review

The Willow Store review 

The Willow Store has high standards when it comes to products!! All of their products are ethically manufactured in the US!  I think that is amazing that they promote only US made products!
And not only that but they also strongly support small business, and living wages.  
 The choose only the highest quality materials, and try to be organic whenever possible.
I was really excited to be able to review and promote for this company!
I was sent reusable wool dryer balls.

Wondering what a wool dryer ball is?
They take the place of your fabric softer and give you peace of mind since they don't have any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners.
. To use, simply toss 2-3 balls in your wet dryer and start. No need to remove them from the dryer, just reuse! And you will save money since these last for a very long time!

This is just one of the amazing products offered at The Willow Store to learn more see my link below:

Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale review

Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale review

~Industry exclusive scale features Microban antimicrobial product protection that helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
~Features the industry's largest blue-backlit LCD with xBright technology for easy-to-read results from afar.
~Ultra sturdy scale combines ABS slip-resistant material on the outside with 6mm impact-resistant tempered glass on the inside.
~Step-on Activation captures the precise weight measurements upon stepping on the scale
~Auto-calibrated and automatically turns off to conserve battery life. Runs on 2 AAA batteries with a Low Battery Indicator (batteries included).

My review

I love the fact this scale lights up and has a clear reading window.  To often in the past I had to squint to see the numbers.  With the Ozeri Digital bathroom scale my numbers are big and easy to read and having a light up window makes it so much easier.  And the weight is right on every time!  My sister, myself and her boyfriend all weighed our-self and each time our weight correct!!  And it has really fast reading no waiting around.
The scale itself is slim and easy to put away its not bulky making it so easy to store in my bathroom.  Not to mention high tech  and sleek looking.

Last I really like the fact it takes AAA batteries this way I don't have to go out of my way to get special batteries like I did with my old scale.

Toilet Tree Fogless shower mirror review

Toilet Tree Fogless  shower mirror review

Father's Day gift guide

Father's Day is right around the corner and if you are anything like me shopping for dad is horrible!! Helping my kids get Father's Day ready for my hubby is always easy the man loves everything and at this point my kids just make hand-made gifts and pour him cereal for breakfast in bed.  But my dad not so easy, the man has everything and I really don't think at 26 I can get away with drawing him a picture.  The last time I got him a tie he used it to play tug-a-war with his dog.  He is a bit chubby so candy or food of any kind is out of the question.  He complains if I try to take him on a trip and when it comes to clothing he is the pickiest man alive (even though he insist on wearing that horrible pink polo!!)  So yes once a year I dread Father's Day...  That was until this year when I found the perfect gift!
The Toilet Tree Fogless Shower Mirror!!  You have no clue how many times I had to giggle at my dad because he would miss a huge patch of hair when shaving.  The man would take my mom's compact in the shower and try to see while shaving.  First off my mom doesn't appreciate it and 2nd off the mirror fogs and is way to small.  So this year for Father's Day my dad is getting a fogless Shower mirror...  At first I was going to give him the one I reviewed, but after using it my hubby insist that he needs it!  So I will have to buy my dad a new one.  He seen mine in the shower and was asking about it and thought it was genius so I know he is going to love his :)

I bet you are wondering what is a fogless shower mirror?  This is a mirror guaranteed not to fog in the shower. Other fogless shower mirrors just don't work not to mention this one has no suction cups saving my toes from falling objects! This products has a removable, soft silicone adhesives that secure the mirror to all shower surfaces and will not damage tiles or shower walls! The mirror conveniently detaches from the bracket so you can easily fill the inside before each use. An included squeegee removes any excess water from the front of your mirror. An adjustable frame makes the mirror accommodating for multiple users and angles.  I'm very short so its nice to be able to tilt it down for myself.

 It is perfect for shaving, exfoliating, tweezing and cleaning. To use: Simply remove the mirror from the bracket before showering and fill with hot water. The hot water will keep the mirror the same temperature as your shower which makes it impossible for your mirror to ever fog. 

I am so impressed not only is the product perfect for my hubby to shave I love using it to remove my make-up!  No more trying to see my reflection in the shower faucet :)  Its great for twee zing my eye brows too I don't miss any of them because the mirror is always clear.  It is the perfect size for my shower not to big and not to small.  So easy to install that even I could do it!  Plus its shatter proof with two little boys who enjoy going on pirate adventures in the tub we have our fair share of flying objects at bath time.

Oh and I love the squeegee it comes with if to much water collects on the front I simply have to push it off .  

I now save so much time in the shower as does my hubby.
I can't wait to give this to my dad the man will finally be able to see in the shower and quit missing huge patches of hair on his face and my mom wont have a water logged compact :)!!!

Little Passports Review

Little Passports Review


I'm sure most of you remember my Little Passport Reviews:

For those of you who didn't get to read the reviews I bet you are wondering what is Little Passports?  Its a monthly subscription box that provides our kiddos with both adventure and knowledge.  They do this with the lovable Sam and Sophia.  Kids get to follow them on their traveling adventures.
There is 2 kinds of kits the World edition or the USA edition.  My little guys got to try the World Edition.
The first month's Explorer Kit arrives in a super cute suitcase, its filled with everything my kids needed to have an adventure.
Each month after that you get a new package feature a new place to help the adventure continue and it awesome to have a super cute suit case to keep everything.  
The 2nd month my kids got to review Brazil they LOVE it!
My son even took it in for show and tell :) 
And now the 3rd month they get to learn about Japan!

This months package included:
A letter from Sofia and Sam
1 Activity sheet 
1 photo
another online code
a sushi eraser 
and a folding technique paper with instructions on how to make you own paper art!

My kids again love it!  They get to learn so much and discover things about places far far away!  My son is always so excited for his dad to get home so he can tell him all the facts about the new places Sofia and Sam have been!  Brandon loves learning new things and Quinn as seen in the photo loves playing with all the neat things that are included in the package!!

Divine Age Guardian Cream with Growth Factor review

Divine Age Guardian Cream with Growth Factor review

Does your skin deserve some luxury?  If so you want to check out DIVINE AGE GUARDIAN CREAM WITH GROWTH FACTOR!   

It is the leading anti-aging technology combined with exquisite indulgence. Divine Age Guardian Cream with Growth Factor is a rich, nourishing cream infused with high strength anti-aging ingredients designed to help the skin from the inside out. The mixture of Epidermal Growth Factor, Matrixyl (Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4), Omega 3-6-9 and Ginseng Extract helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and correct imperfections. It does this by stimulating cellular regeneration, microcirculation and the production of youth proteins.   Add this to the Combined time released hydrators, anti-oxidants and skin brighteners to enhance health and radiance, the skin feels hydrated, lifted and toned and you have a luxury all purpose cream!

So now that I gave you all the fun facts I would love to tell you what I thought of the product!
The first time I used it I was in awe of the texture of this cream!  I could tell it was like nothing I ever used before.  In words its really hard to describe its not thin like a lotion it has a really good texture that I loved instantly.  I applied this to my face and neck in a circular motion.  The first night I used way to much and it took a long time to absorb.  The point I'm trying to make is a little bit goes a long way you don't have to over do it!
I know a lot of lotions leave a greasy gross feeling.  With Divine Age Guardian cream I didn't have this.  It took about 5 minutes (when I used the proper amount) for it to absorb into my skin.
The very next day my skin felt healthier!  I have pain in the butt skin one day it will be to oily so I treat it....  After I treat for oily skin it becomes to dry so again I treat it and back to oily we are.  I thought for sure this cream would take away my dry skin only to give me oily, but it didn't!!  The next day I woke up with a fresh face!  I love it :)
I will admit this cream cost a bit to much for me to buy on a daily bases.  The thing is like a said earlier a little bit goes a long way so I wouldn't have to buy it often.
My skin deserves to be treat to luxury once in awhile and with Divine Age Guardian I get that 
so to me its worth the price.
My skin feels healthy and I know it will keep me looking young longer

It works review

It works review

I'm sure everyone has heard of It Works Body wraps.  And I know everyone is wondering if they really worked.I got the chance to try a wrap!!  And guess what....
With the summer coming up I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I want to be swim suit ready!  Dieting and exercising are great, but I wanted a way to make my stomach look tighter and toned.
That is why I'm so excited to discover it works.
I used the product Monday, Mother's Day was Sunday and of course I ate more then normal.  So Monday, I thought would be the perfect time to put the Wrap to the test.

For anyone who wants to use It Works Wraps its very important that you drink plenty of water it helps to detoxify your body.  the more you drink the more you lose.  The wrap still works 72 hours after application.
The directions on the pack are really easy to follow :).
The lotion on the wrap smells amazing and it was so easy to apply.  I simply stuck it in place lotion side to my skin, used plastic wrap I had at home to keep it in place, left it on for 45 minutes,  Removed and I was done. 

 I took the first 2 photos on Monday when I used the wrap.  The last photo was taken today.  I'm so impressed with my outcome!  
The only thing I wish I could change is the price of these.  Sadly they cost almost $25 per wrap!!

But I just found out  if you sign up as a loyal customer (which is just agreeing to buy one product a month for three months,) you get a box of 4 for $59 instead of $99 making each wrap just under $15 a piece!
That is amazing and to be honest def. worth the price!

 Wonder where you can buy It works for yourself?
See my links below

Facebook page

I love the fact that this particular seller donates all her profits are to charity (currently an adoption fund, and mission trip to an orphanage!)

I think that is so amazing and I'm proud to promote for her here on my blog!

This is one of my favorite holidays!  Not because I get gifts or breakfast in bed (those are both nice though!)  I love this holiday because it celebrates the fact I'm a mom.  Being a mom is the most important thing I have ever done.  It only makes sense to have a day that honors just how special that is.  

 Last year for mothers day my son who at the time was 4 poured me a bowl of cereal for my breakfast in bed (I had to get out of bed though to help him pour the milk), he then picked me flowers (from my flower bed... lol) and he made me a hand drawn picture... On my living room wall.  I don't know if he is going to be able to top it this year.  Let me rephrase I HOPE he doesn't top it this year lol.

I not sure what my 2 little guys plan on doing this year, but no matter what I will love it!

I want to share one of my favorite mother quotes:
~The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.
