NeoCell Biotin Bursts for Better Hair and Nails


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

We all strive to get beautiful skin, and with a little extra help, it can be easier to achieve. With NeoCell Biotin Bursts, you get a high potency of beauty nutrients in each soft chew, with 10,000 mcg of biotin, and 25 mg of Brazillian Acai Berry powder. The Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7, is a water soluble vitamin that supports hair and skin health while the acai berry powder works as an antioxidant to help fight premature aging of the skin. This mix is scientifically formulated to support metabolism or proteins in the body, promoting natural energy, luxurious hair, and vibrant skin.

Each chew contains just 20 calories and 3g of sugar, and has no gluten, soy, or artificial flavors. You take one chew a day and hopefully see some happy results!

I like the ease in taking Biotin, with just one little chew you pop in your mouth. It's like you're eating a piece of candy! The texture is much like taffy and the flavor is sweet but really tart. I think it would taste better without the tartness. I haven't noticed a difference just yet in taking them, but hoping they work!



You can find NeoCell Biotin Bursts available for purchase at neocell.com

MIRA Insulated Cola Shaped Water Bottle


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

It is always good to keep our bodies hydrated, especially when we're on the go! But we want our drinks to stay cool and often times, we find the temperature of our drink changing faster then we'd like. With the MIRA Insulated Cola Shaped Water Bottle, you can keep your drinks just as you like them! This high quality insulated water bottle is made to keep your drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12!

I love the Mira bottle, perfect for my husband to take to work with him. He likes his drinks to stay extra cold, especially on days when he takes juice, so it doesn't go bad. Occasionally he likes to have hot cocoa, so having this bottle keep his drink warm for longer times is an added plus! But it doesn't withhold the full 24 hours for cold, 12 hours for hot, as the box says it should. And according to the information on Amazon, they say this bottle stays cold for up to 12 hours, but we still found it doesn't quite achieve that. It stays cool, but the temperature begins to drop with each use of drinking, so by the time my husband gets home, the liquid in the bottle is just above room temperature. Which is still good, because with other bottles, the liquid would be completely warm, but I would say it's under the designated times they give. Most people finish their drinks in that amount of time anyway though ;-)

The MIRA Insulated Cola Shaped Water Bottle holds up to 2 cups of liquid and would be great for taking with you to on long car rides, to sports events, or spending time outdoors. It fits most auto cup holders and its slim design makes it easy to carry. The lid is easy to unscrew, doesn't leak, and the double-walled vacuum insulated body prevents any condensation from happening, so it would also be great to keep in your purse. The bottle is made of food grade 18/8 stainless steel and is BPA and Phthalate free. It's easy to wash with a bottle brush, and it with high quality structure that should last you a long time.

The MIRA Insulated Cola Shaped Water Bottle is available for purchase on Amazon for $18.95 and has 4 different colors to choose from.

Yorkshire-Mayfair Luxury Microfiber Sheet Set


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

If you're looking for a new sheet set, the Yorkshire-Mayfair luxury microfiber sheet sets are affordable, comfortable, and great for all your bedding needs.

This sheet set is hypoallergenic, made of the highest quality heavy-weight, high-gram luxury microfiber and includes 4 pieces, a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillowcases. It is supposed to be more durable then cotton, and wrinkle resistant, with an extra deep pocket fit, fitting mattresses up to 14", making it great for beds that have extra padding on it. These sheets are also stain resistant and the color will not fade, making them look new and refreshed, wash after wash.


When I first received this sheet set to review, I'll be honest, I wasn't too fond of the color. But once I got it out of the package and onto my bed, I actually found myself liking it! The color is growing on me, and it looks really well with khaki, gray, or black. The texture is silky soft, and cool to touch. It's really comfortable to sleep on, but I suggest you wash it before using, for extra softness. My husband loves these sheets and ooed and ahhh'd over them when he slipped into bed lol. The only thing he didn't like is that they feel warmer then cotton sheets, on warmer days. I haven't noticed that, the only downfall I've seen is that they aren't really wrinkle resistant, but that's no big deal, they're covered by the comforter anyways! Other then that, this is a great sheet set and worth the price!


You can find the Yorkshire-Mayfair luxury microfiber sheets sets available in assorted colors and sizes for purchase on Amazon with a lifetime guarantee! The set I received for this review was a Queen size in the color green, for just $29.95!

Sharing Small Sock Subscription Fun for Kids!


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 


Sharing Small has the mission to turn an everyday item into a source of fun for children, to use as a teaching point on the community and a lesson on the importance in empathy and giving back to others. Their goal is to give all children access to high-quality apparel and educational tools so that children can learn about charity and sharing as natural parts of living.







Every month, your child will receive a new package of socks with a matching postcard, to warm their feet and spark their imagination. The socks feature the Sharing Small Explorers, which are basic stick figures that went on a fun adventure, and their postcards are included to tell about it. Each set of socks hold different escapades and color schemes, to bring joy and excitement to your child. The socks are made with high quality materials of 75% combed cotton, 23% spandex, and 2% elastic, made to keep feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 


Sharing Small Socks are available in 3 different sizes:
Small for ages 2-4
Medium for ages 5-8
Large for ages 9-12  
(+ adults with small feet)

I wear a size 7 in women's shoes and was able to fit into the kids 5-8 size, hence the picture above, my feet are on the right. I love these socks, they are stretchy, comfortable, and breathable, even for my wide feet! The only thing I wish was different about them, is I wish they had little pads on the bottom of the socks, so little ones (or yourself) won't slide around on the kitchen or bathroom floors. If you wanted, you could add little polka dots to the bottom of the socks, using fabric paint...this will make them slip resistant, and would also be an extra bit of fun to do with your children! Other then that, these socks are fun and will keep your feet happy! Your children will love them! My son agrees, he said "they are so comfortable, I don't want to take them off!" :)

To learn more about Sharing Small Subscription, visit sharingsmall.com where you can subscribe for just $10 a month, And for every month of socks purchased, Sharing Small will donate the very same socks to children in need! 

You can also find Sharing Small on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Tiny Bear's Bible - Book Review

Tiny Bear's Bible is an adorable children's bible written by Sally Lloyd-Jones with illustrations by Igor Oleynikov. The cover is just as soft and fuzzy as it looks, with 11 Bible stories inside, worded in poems that children can understand better. The pictures inside are colorful and fun for kids to follow along with.

Each bible verse is told in a rhyming tone, and directed as if it was talking to Tiny Bear itself. Here is a page from the book, on the story of God Promises to Rescue Noah:



"I'll keep you safe!" God promised His friend.
'My world has gone wrong and I'm starting again.'
So God sent a flood, 
and they all sailed away,
And floated and floated, 
for day after day!
When their boat landed safely,
They all said, "PHEW!"
And when God makes a promise,
You know that it's true!
Yes Tiny Bear,
God keeps
His promises!"

Children will love reading along with this book, and feeling the soft and fuzzy cover, from front to back. They will want the book to be kept near and have it read as a bedtime book. Tiny Bear's Bible is a great little book for young children, and would make a great addition to their Easter basket!

You can find Tiny Bear's Bible available for purchase at faithgateway.com for $15.99 although they show the cover looks different, I believe the book I received above is the one you will get.

This review is made possible by BookLook Bloggers,  in providing me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions my own.

Beabies Teething Necklace and Bracelet Set


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

What does a mother do when she has a nursing or teething baby but wants to wear her best set or pearls?
She wears a Beabies Teething Necklace of course!

Beabies Teething Necklace has round beads and looks much like a necklace of colored pearls. It pairs with a matching stretchy bracelet that is just as beautiful as its necklace, but without the fear of baby breaking it or chewing on something unhealthy. These teething jewelry are designed with baby in mind, because we all know how much they like to chew on our stuff...

The chewy beads provide a natural pain relief to babies sore gums when they are teething, and it also keeps them occupied while being held or nursing, so their hands are getting into other things. This necklace set will not only ease baby's pains, but it will also look beautiful with your every day wardrobe,
and give you an extra lift of pizazz :)

The Teething Necklace and Bracelet set is made of food grade silicone that is BPA free and FDA approved, and is all free from PVC, Latex, Rubber, and Lead. It contains no vinyl, phthalates, plastic, nitrosamines, cadmium, or heavy materials, making it 100% safe for you and your babies.
They are easy to clean and can be tossed in the dishwasher to wash,
and they can also be boiled in water for sterilization.

The Teething Necklace and Bracelet Set would make a great baby shower gift! You can find this set available for purchase on Amazon for under $22 with free shipping on orders over $35, and free returns when needed. They are available in5 different colors, the set I reviewed was in the color Gray.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! {2015}

The color green, shamrocks, and golden coins everywhere....It's St. Patrick's Day!


This year I set up a small little spot of decoration for my son to wake up to. I made a balloon rainbow, complete with cotton clouds and a "Lucky Me Lucky You" printout from Tattered and Inked. I decorated the little table with shamrocks and confetti along with golden chocolate coins. And I had some activities ready to go!

For breakfast I made a French Toast Casserole with green sprinkles on top and served it with orange slices. Then we read the book One Potato, Two Potato And I printed off the worksheet "How to Trick and Trap a Leprechaun" from Teaming Up To Teach for my son to do. Lunch wasn't all glorious as I wanted to do, but we did use green plates! :) I'm still undecided on what I am making for dinner but it will probably be steak and potatoes. And of course we have Irish music playing in the background.

How's your St. Patrick's Day going?

Beabies Teething Necklace and Bracelet/Bangle set


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

 When your baby is teething, they will grab at anything to put in their mouth and chew on. Their gums are sore and itchy, and they are trying to find something to make them feel better. So when they reach for your jewelry you have on for the day, is it safe for baby?

With the Beabies Teething Necklace and Bracelet/Bangle set, you don't have to worry about your little one getting a hold of your necklace or bracelet and breaking it or worse, them choking on it. The teething jewelry set is fun and colorful, not only will your baby love it, but you will like its chunky vibrancy added to your wardrobe. And because it is available in different colors, you can wear one each day to match your outfit! Your babies will benefit from you wearing the teething jewelry by keeping their gums at ease, as well as entertained when being held or nursing, so they wont feel the need to pull at your hair or face. You can also place the jewelry in the freezer, so baby has a colder piece to bite on. I'd imagine this would also feel great cold, for wearing on those hot summer days! I love the way these chew beads feel, and knowing they naturally relieve baby's pain, makes them all worth the purchase. Plus they're very fashionable and the colors are beautifully made!

The Teething Necklace and Bracelet/Bangle set is made of food grade silicone that is BPA free and FDA approved, and is all free from PVC, Latex, Rubber, and Lead. It contains no vinyl, phthalates, plastic, nitrosamines, cadmium, or heavy materials, making it 100% safe for you and your babies. They are easy to clean and can be tossed in the dishwasher to wash, and they can also be boiled in water for sterilization.

The Teething Necklace and Bracelet/Bangle Set would make a great baby shower gift!

They are available in 4 different colors, the set I reviewed was in the color Blue.

Harry Potter Time Turner Twin Necklace Set


 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

The perfect gift for lovers of Harry Potter, this Time Turner twin necklace set is sure to bring smiles to those who enjoy it. The Wizardry Jewelry double pack comes with two necklaces, the Hour Glass Necklace and the Spinning Symbol Necklace. They are both gold plated and have chain lengths of 23cm, with hook/clasps on the ends for proper wearing. The necklace with the hour glass has a working sand timer, although the sand pours through to each side within seconds. Inscribed around the band of this necklace it says "I mark the hours every one, Nor have I yet outrun the sun. My use and value unto you are gauged by what you have to do." I thought this necklace was pretty cool. A unique style and love that each circle rotates around together.

 In the spinning symbol necklace, just the circle inside of the triangle spins and it can be worn with the hour glass necklace as it is a bit shorter. The quality of these necklaces seem a bit cheap, as the gold plating tarnishes easy, but they are fun and great for costume wearing. Children and adults, who enjoy Harry Potter, will also like these necklaces as they are interesting and make a good conversation piece! My son is 7 and just getting in to Harry Potter, loves these necklaces! He also likes anything gold so they go hand in hand :)



You can find the Wizardry Jewelry Double Pack-Harry Potter Time Turner Twin Necklace Set  available for purchase on Amazon for $15.99. It is also available in silver.

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

When babies are teething, their little gums experience pain that gives them the need to gnaw on something to feel better. With the Beabies 3 Teether Toy Set, your baby has the choice to gnaw on three different teethers, a train, a car, or an elephant. Each teether has a smooth side and a bumpy side, making it soothing for babies sore, itchy gums. The teethers can also be placed in the freezer so your little one can enjoy it cold! The 3 piece teether set also includes a pacifier clip/teether holder that can hook to babies clothing to keep teether from falling, as well as a string to turn one of the teethers in to a necklace you can wear, while bonding with your baby.

 
Not only are these teethers great for babies teething, but they also work well in teaching your little one their colors and shapes, making them great for motor skills. Even older children will love them, as their soft and squishy texture feels good in your hands, and they are fun to play with!

Each teether toy is made of food grade silicone that is BPA free and FDA approved, and is all free from PVC, Latex, Rubber, and Lead. It contains no vinyl, phthalates, plastic, nitrosamines, cadmium, or heavy materials, making it 100% safe for you and your babies. They are easy to clean and can be tossed in the dishwasher to wash, and they can also be boiled in water for sterilization.
