Purex Plus Clorox 2 #Review And #Giveaway

Purex logo.jpg

If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, you’re already well aware of how much I love my Purex products.  I recently got the opportunity to try out the new Purex Plus Clorox 2 and see if it could hold up to my mess-making household.  I couldn’t wait to see how well it tackled the children, dog, and of course my overgrown-man-child of a husband.

PurexClorox2Collage.jpg

The first thing I was excited about was the scent of the new Purex Plus Clorox 2 detergent.  The scent is called Sunny Linen and smells like the freshest mountain air while clothes air dry in the spring.  I LOVE laundry that smells so incredibly clean after I wash clothes so the scent is absolutely perfect.

I couldn’t decide what to wash first, but my puppy figured she would decide for me.  The newest fur addition to our family is 7 weeks old and we’re still working on house training.  She thought the dog bed looked like the perfect place to take a restroom break, so Purex Plus Clorox 2 to the rescue!  I took the padding out of the dog bed and added some detergent straight onto the stain and let it sit for about 10 minutes before washing.  After just one run through the washer the dog bed was good as new, and no stains!

Being a mother of 3 rambunctious kids, it was only a matter of time since my kids had stains for me to tackle.  I figured what better way to prove to you that Purex Plus Clorox 2 works than showing you.

This is a shirt that I bought my son just TWO weeks ago.  He can’t tell me what he got on it, so keep in mind I had no idea what kind of a stain I was trying to eliminate.

The solution to mystery stains?  Pour the Purex Plus Clorox 2 directly on the stain, let sit ten minutes, then run through the wash as usual.  So simple!

My son’s shirt came out looking good as new, and I’m so thankful to have been able to save the shirt rather than replace it.

All of my laundry has been coming out fresh and bright, and I’ll be making the permanent switch to Purex Plus Clorox 2 so my family and I are always looking (and smelling) our best.

Design Your Own Pajamas Over and Over Again With Draw Jammies

1794a8e8-4f7d-404f-8a7e-00a1b1285fc8

I have a daughter who LOVES coloring, and has gotten herself into trouble a few times for drawing on clothing.  When I told my daughter I was getting her Draw Jammies, she was so excited!  She had seen them on TV and asked a few times to get them because it was FINALLY clothing that she could draw on.

DrawJammies.jpg

The Draw Jammies package comes with everything you’ll need to make picture perfect pajamas.  You’ll receive the set of pajamas (of course!), stencils, markers, and even glow in the dark gel!

DrawJammies3.jpg

I decorated the front of my daughters pajama shirt just to see for myself how well everything works before I let her have a blast decorating them herself.  Although I immediately noticed that the markers bleed pretty heavily, my daughter really didn’t seem to mind.  The markers work well, the bleeding is from the pajama material I think.

DrawJammiesCollage.jpg

The glow in the dark gel is a super fun touch to ad.  The package recommends 5 minutes to dry but ours took considerably longer so keep that in mind if using it close to bed time.  It glows really well and my daughter thought it was the coolest thing ever to have her pajamas glow in the dark.

All in all it’s a really good product, but if the color bleeding problem could be solved it would be a great product.

Tallulah Lugz Review and Giveaway

lugz_hireslogo_new

Lugz are an essential part of every family member’s wardrobe.  I’m so excited to be kicking off the chilly season with the new Tallulah Lugz .

Lugz2 Lugz3

During the fall/winter months we get tons of rain, and a good amount of snow so good footwear is essential.  When choosing your footwear, quality should be number one.  Lugz definitely ranks right at the top when I think of quality shoes.  What’s even better is you can still wear the hottest styles while having functional, well-made shoes.

Lugz4 Lugz5

Lugz Tallulah boots are just the cutest boots ever!  I love how versatile they are…they pair great with skinny jeans, leggins, whatever your creative heart desires.  They’re water resistant so you can enjoy the little things in life and splash in that puddle you always avoid when it rains because you’re afraid your feet will get wet.  The fur lining will ensure that your toes stay nice and toasty, while the cushioned insole ensures you will always be comfortable.

I live pretty far from the closest grocery store (25 miles one way) so when I make a trip into town, I make it worth my while.  I made me fruitful journey into town the other day and after 3 hours walking and running errands my feet still felt amazing…not one ache or pain.  I also noticed less back pain after extended walking because my feet were well supported.

Even if the Tallulah boots aren’t quite your style, make sure you check out Lugz for all the newest and cutest fashions…there’s something for everyone!

***GIVEAWAY!!!***

Lugz has also been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway!!  One lucky winner will receive their very own Tallulah Lugz! Giveaway will begin 111/10/15 at midnight EST and will end 11/17/15 midnight EST. Winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen.

C4 Belts Review and Giveaway

Christmas C4

What better way to treat yourself or someone you love than with a customized belt that’s super fashionable?  C4 Belts is the perfect gift, and is truly built exactly how you want it!

When I partnered up with C4 belts, I of course wanted a pink, adorable belt for myself.  My husband, however, was really needing a belt for work.  He had a belt but it was the teeth-grip type buckle and it was always sliding open.  I decided to get my honey bunny the black belt with black chrome buckle.

C41

I love the packaging the C4 belt comes in.  My husband saved his and used it for loose screws in his tool box, what a great way to re-purpose the box!

20151002_143206

The C4 logo is on every belt, and you should wear it proudly!  C4 stands for Choose your Color, Choose your Cause.  For every belt sold, 10% is donated to charity, and you can vote on where you’d like your 10% to go!  Now you can spoil yourself or someone else while doing something AMAZING at the same time…truly a gift that keeps on giving.

C43

Once your C4 belt arrives, simply cut to fit, and attach the buckle!

I do have to say, I was really on the fence about how this belt would hold up to my husband’s abuse.  He works very hard, all day long, mostly crawling on his belly in dirty, rock filled, insect infested places.  Moving, transporting, and installing manufactured homes is a rougher job than most would imagine it is, and let me tell you, this C4 belt has been tortured and abused the past couple weeks.  Although the buckle is a little beat up now, that’s the worst that has happened.  His belt doesn’t loosen, his pants don’t slip, and he’s able to work more productively because he’s not always tugging at his pants.

C44

All in all it’s a really great belt, however, I would change one teeny tiny little piece.  The corner of the cut out logo pictured above can prove to be a little bit of a pain.  I mentioned that my husband is on his belly a lot under houses and that little piece catches really easily on rocks.  It also catches belt loops when taking the belt off, but that is the ONE and ONLY thing I would change.  How cool would it be to have the cutout logo attached to a colored background so it was one solid piece with an extra touch of personality?

GIVEAWAY!!!

C4 Belts has also been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway!!  One lucky winner will receive their very own customized C4 Belt! Giveaway will begin 10/23/15 at midnight EST and will end 10/30/15 midnight EST. Winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen. All giveaway entries will be validated. Winners are randomly selected. Click the link below to enter :

Sleeping Beauty Costume Review

discounters

I know many of my readers already know the obsession my little girl has with dress-up and anything frilly.  One of her favorite things lately is anything and everything princess, but particularly Princess Aurora, or Princess Rerora as my 3 year old calls her.  She reminds me very much of myself, a little girl in love with the fairytale life of a princess.  But then again, what little girl doesn’t love princesses right?

Costume1  Costume2

Costume Discounters has an incredibly large selection of costumes, not just for girls.  There is something for everyone whether you’re 1 or 100.  They also sell this adorable Sleeping Beauty costume that I got for my little one.  I do have to admit, it was a super hard decision to make.  Roughly ninety percent of what I saw on the website, I knew would be a hit with my daughter.  I’m really glad I decided the Sleeping Beauty costume would be the best choice.  She loves the princess dress, and I love the quality of the costume.  Most costumes I can find locally are made extremely cheaply, but this one is made to withstand some wear.  (Make sure you Like CD on Facebook for all the latest and greatest!)

Costume4  Costume3

I’m sure you can tell by these pictures, she is one little happy girl.  The costume did fit slightly larger than I expected, but I’m honestly really pleased that is the case.  She is sooooo in love with her costume and I can’t seem to keep it off of her.  Since it is a little big she will be able to wear it longer, and I’ll get to see the gorgeous smile 🙂 .

Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Review and Giveaway

image

Purex has a new line of Aromatherapy Crystals that top any other Purex Crystals scent to date.  There are 3 amazing scents: Well Being, Energy, and Serenity. For my review I received Energy.

image

The Energy Purex Crystals have a great citrusy orange scent and it’s very refreshing. It’s a scent that myself and my whole family can’t get enough of. The Crystals dissolve into the water quickly and you can smell the refreshing aroma right away.  I start my washer, toss in the Crystals, add the clothes, and toss in my laundry detergent pac and I’m good to go. The clothes come out smelling so good!

image

image

image

Since receiving the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy,  every time I take a load of laundry out of the dryer I’m greeted by my 3 year old daughter saying “let me smell, let me smell!”  She will sit and just inhale the smell of the clothing until I take it away.

image

Even the furry family members can’t get enough!

image

Marcus just wants to be surrounded by it…

image

And Mr. Pringles just couldn’t resist falling asleep face down in the delicious scent.

All around it’s a product I really love. BUT, I do find the amount of product compared to the packaging was a little disappointing. The Crystals only come high enough to barley cover the clear window on the front of the packaging. I know packaging is done by weight, but it’s not liekly THAT much room is needed for variation. Would I still buy the product?  Of course, I love it! I would, however, like to see more in the bottle which I’d be willing to pay more for, or a smaller packaging which would cost less to manufacture and end up costing us, the consumers less in the long run.

GIVEAWAY!!!
Puewx has also been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway! Three lucky winners will receive a product coupon good for one free bottle of Purex Crystals Aromatherapy! Giveaway will begin on 10/11/14 at 12:00 am EST and end on 10/18/14 at 12:00 am EST. Winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen.

Br4ss Men’s Fitted Boxers Review

BR4SS-logo

Br4ss (1)

The Men’s Fitted Boxers from Br4ss are not only incredibly sexy looking, they pack a fit and comfort that regular undies just can’t match. I of course love the look of fitted boxers on my husband, and he never seems to like the fit saying that they’re tight in all the wrong places and ride up and become more frustrating than anything. The Br4ss fit is so comfortable that my husband actually prefers these to his other boxers now, and I can’t wait to get him some more!

Br4ss (2)

The Tie Die Blue are so fun and bright! They’re super stylish and have the Br4ss great fit that we’d heard so much about and my husband couldn’t wait to try.

Br4ss (3)

The Jaguar Camo fitted boxers are HOT HOT HOT! They are unbelievably sexy and look absolutely stunning on my sexy man. I was SO happy when he enjoyed the fit of the Br4ss fitted boxers. That means he will wear them more than once and look drop dead sexy when he does.

The 4 way stretch offers comfort and fit that you won’t find anywhere else. The Br4ss fitted boxers are made with incredible quality and attention to detail. I can’t wait to get some more for my husband so we can throw out the big, baggy, unflattering boxers. Gentlemen, not everyone will see your boxers, but don’t you want the ones who do to know you love to live in style? There’s no better way than Br4ss fitted boxers.

Br4ss also included a sample of their ‘Alpha‘ cologne. In more ways than one, Br4ss sure does know how to impress. My husband is always on the hunt for a good cologne and this one won him over quite quickly. I also am in love with the scent, and I can’t get enough of it when my hubby has ‘Alpha’ on. He’s always asking for a good bottle of cologne, I just never know what to get him! I definitely know what Santa will be leaving in his stocking this year!

Halloween Adventure Review

HalloweenAdventureLogo

I recently had the opportunity to review for Halloween Adventure and I was ecstatic. If you have children, you know that costumes aren’t just for Halloween. My daughter LOVES playing dress-up and can never have enough outfits or costumes in her collection. When she saw her new Lil’ Dragon costume she couldn’t wait to put it on.

Costume

Costume2

The costume is made from really great quality materials, much better than I think I could find locally. All of the stitching that’s done is done really well. Usually when I buy a costume within a few minutes there’s a tear at a seam somewhere and after quite a few uses so far I’m happy to say there are no rips, tears, or snags. The costume being one piece (monster hood is attached, the wings are the only separate item) is really genius for kids who lose things quickly. The attention to detail is top notch, and there’s even a cute little tail attached to the rear of the costume. I’m really hoping that by Halloween the costume is still in such great shape. My daughter can’t wait to go out trick-or-treating and say, “trick or treat, roar!” haha, she is a little character!

Costume3

Costume6

Costume5

What a fun way to help my daughter’s imagination come to life! She loves roaming around the house and roaring like a dragon, having some of the best adventures of her little life. There’s never a dull moment…this is the stuff memories are made of.

October is coming up…make this Halloween a memorable Halloween with Halloween Adventure.

Swimsuits Direct Review

logo

There’s absolutely no denying, summer is here. If you’re like me, trying to shop women’s bathing suits can be virtually impossible. After some deep searching, I found that there was a great website to shop a wide variety of brands and sizes all in one place. Swimsuitsdirect.com was a heaven send to help me with my problem.

I personally feel more comfortable in a tankini, and you can search Swimsuits Direct by the style you’re specifically looking for. After going through a great selection of swimsuits, this is the suit I went with:

swimsuitsdirect

It’s the Cole Of California Isabella Ikat Tankini and so adorable! I am NO swimsuit model by any means. I have had 3 children and my body shows that, BUT I do want to show you that the suit fits really comfortably, so I’m sucking it up and am willing to share a picture of me in my new suit.

swimsuitsdirectme2

Obviously there’s no hiding the fact that I’m a little large-chested. That’s always the hardest part of finding a swimsuit because when I’m swimming the suits don’t tend to hold things in well. I took my kids swimming today to put this suit to the test. I am VERY pleased to report that the swimsuit stayed fitting well, and held everything in place even while swimming.

If you’re looking for a new swimsuit this season, the only good way to order is with Swimsuits Direct.

DISCOUNT CODE!!!
Swimsuits Direct has offered to all of you a 25% discount! If you’re looking for a swimsuit for yourself, or your daughter (they have young girls suits as well) be sure to check them out and use discount code ssdab25 at checkout for your 25% off!
