They smelled really good and really strong.  (Sadly, the actual box inside that I received was falling apart, but it probably happened during shipping. This didn't affect the product whatsoever...) I

Weigh Yourself On This-MIRA Instant On Digital Scale Product Review

I didn't want a traditional scale, I wanted a digital scale but they were all so pricey. Lucky for me, I was given a digital scale from MIRA for free, in exchange for an honest review. I jumped at the opportunity. About This Product Reliable, accurate reading Slim, flat design Large blue lighted display that is very easy to display High precision sensors that weigh you as soon as you step onto it Display your weight in pounds, kilos, or stones Can measure up to 330 lbs or 150 kilos Requires four AAA batteries 2 yr manufacturer's warranty included Bright blue, clear display What this scale looks like on the bottom.

Adovia Dead Sea Mud Mask Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. I received this free full sized tube of ADOVIA Purifying Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask ($30 value) a few days ago to review.  I was interested in trying this product out because I've always heard a ton of good things about products that use Dead Sea Salt.

Kid's Academy Learning Games for Kids Apps Review

My 5 year old boy is extremely intelligent.He is currently being homeschooled so I am always in search of new educational books, games, and materials. I was very interested to try out the latest learning app from Kids Academy with him. He loves playing games on his tablet, so I knew he would be more than willing to give it a try.  About This App: The app is available for download through iTunes, NOOK, the Google Play Store, and the Amazon Store. I downloaded it through iTunes- it was quick and easy.  The games are geared toward a younger audience- 5 years old and under  Very colorful and interactive Teaches kids about reading, ABCs, tracing, music, numbers, and more Montessori programs available Parenting Mode available My Thoughts on This App: The app was very easy for my son to get into on his own and he can understand everything about the games. (It might help that he can read very well, but other children who can't read yet might be able to access

All Natural Colon Cleanse Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Okay, so a few weeks ago my husband, son, and I went to visit some family out of state. We ate so many different foods that we don't eat on a regular basis. Normally we all eat really healthy...However, it was like a mini-vacation for us, so we decide to allow ourselves to indulge on all of the good foods we were offered. We ate and ate and ate. Anyway, I definitely felt it when we came back home. I felt tired, bloated, and very sluggish. I was irritable and upset at myself for allowing myself to get so carried away with all of my eating. Well, I had my bottle of Pure Colon Cleanse Detox that I received for free (in exchange for my review, of course). I took one capsule a day (I only took one capsule because I am not very tall, nor do I weigh much- you can take two a day with a cup of water. The directions say not to exceed 3 a day). They really did help me with everything that I was experiencing

Wondering about how I get all of these products? You can do it too!

I honestly can't believe how much my blog has grown since the day I started, a few years ago. I have received more free products than I could have ever imagined possible. Before, I was lucky if I received 1-3 samples every 6 months or so. This week alone, I have about 8 that are on their way... My mail man stopped me the other day and asked, "Wow, you sure love online shopping, huh?" I just laughed and told him, "I do, but all those boxes you bring are things that companies actually send me for free. I don't pay a cent." He said, "That's pretty cool! I've never seen anyone get so many free packages every week!" I have reviewed hundreds of products, now, to this day, on my blog, my social networks, and review sites. I am also very happy to be able to now be doing giveaways too. It's a lot of fun, but it's also a lot of work. I don't just receive free products. I have to set aside time every few days to try EVERY product

Purex No Sort For Colors Detergent Review and Giveaway Ends 4/24/14!

I received another bottle of detergent to review--this time it was a bottle of Purex No Sort for Colors About this Product: Traps loose dyes during the wash Prevent color bleeding accidents  Leaves your clothes bright and clean Has a dye transfer inhibitor No need for sorting laundry What I Thought About This Product: The first thing that I noticed about this particular detergent was the strong fresh scent. To me, it smells quite a bit stronger than other detergents that I've tried before. Maybe it's just me... I was curious to see how well this product would work if I mixed my colored laundry with my whites. I sometimes do this anyway, but yes there have been a few times that colors bled onto my white clothing... Anyway,  I put my bright red sheets and red pillow cases in the washer with my white mattress protector/cover. I used Purex No Sort for Colors detergent in the wash and you know what? They both came out fine. No bleed

White Matcha Tea from Red Leaf Tea Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. If you know me, then you know that I am a tea-aholic. I seriously am. I drink hot tea several times a day, everyday, despite how hot or cold it is outside. I just love it so much. My favorites are both white tea and green tea. I was sent a free bag of White Matcha from Red Leaf Tea  to try out and review. What is White Matcha? For those of you who have never heard of matcha--it is normally associated with green tea. However, Red Leaf Tea has decided to make a white matcha. It is made the same way as green matcha because the leaves are stone ground into a powder form. It is 100% pure, with no preservatives, no MSG/chemical additives, no artificial coloring, and no sweeteners. It's very simple to prepare. You can heat the water up, not boiling, but very hot, and then just mix in 1/2 a teaspoon- 1 teaspoon of the matcha powder. It's kind of like mixing hot cocoa or some instant coffee. Just keep s

Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh Review and Giveaway! Ends 4/20/2014!

 Hello! Here is another one of my product reviews and giveaway :)  Does your laundry smell bad? Are there some foul lingering odors on your clothes that you just can't seem to get rid of? Do people give you dirty looks when you cross their paths because your clothes just stink so bad??? (Just kidding...maybe...) Have you ever used Purex Crystals in-wash fragrance booster ? I hadn't until I was given the chance to try the limited edition one-Fabulously Fresh- a few days ago. It is one of Purex's latest laundry enhancers that can supposedly keep your laundry smelling super fresh for more than just a few days. Even though you can find it in the fabric softener aisle at the store, it is more than just a fabric softener.  It is a natural softener, (87% natural), that eliminates odors and is safe for all of your laundry, which includes your kiddo's pajamas and athletic wear. Also, it does not reduce the absorbency of your towels, which is great.
