Flawless Finish Makeup Blender #bbloggers

Hey makeup lovers! What do you use to apply your makeup? Does it come out as smoothly as you would like it to? Does it blend well on your skin? Have you ever seen one of these sponge makeup blenders before? Company's Product Description Latex free Flawless application of liquid foundation makeup No streaks Even distribution Pointed side can be used around nose and eyes Wide side can be used around face, chin, and forehead Easy to clean I usually use a brush or my hands to blend the makeup on my face but my sister has one of these and told me it works really well. The color is bright pink and feminine and its soft. I used it to blend my makeup on my face and it does help me get a more smooth and even application on my skin. I like it, but I can stil do this with my brush. I do like that it's easier to clean this sponge than it is to clean a brush. It also dries a lot faster. Nice product to keep in a makeup bag or drawer. Click here to buy your

Hoo-Rag Giveaway! #hoorag Ends 6/01/2015!

I used to wear bandanas all the time as a teenager and while in college. They were nice and convenient when I was working out, had no time to do my hair, to keep my hair up when it was too hot out, or for bad hair days. I had every color and design you could imagine.  However, I can honestly say that no bandana I owned back then was as cool as my Hoo-Rag.  Look at the awesome design!  This one is called Hot Mama. According to the company, Hoo-rags are " made of 100 percent polyester microfiber that wicks away moisture and protects you from the suns harmful rays! Rated to 30 UPF." This is how long the Hoo-rag is. It's a tubular bandana and can serve as a lot more than the average one. Here are just a few ways that you can wear the Hoo-rag. There are actually several more ways! Some ways you can wear it are: Face mask Neck gatier Pirate rag Head band  Balaclava Ponytail rag Alice rag This video shows you a variety of ways

La Lune Naturals Organic Lip Balms #lalunenaturals

I prefer to wear lip balm over lipstick. Even if I do wear lipstick, I like to use a good lip balm underneath. Problem for me is that I don't always find the kind of lip balm that I want. I especially like balms that are made from organic ingredients. The La Lune Naturals Organic Lip Balms Pack sounded like a product that I just had to try and I'm thrilled that it came in a pack of four.  The labels are nice and the flavor variety is great. I'm very pleased that these particular lip balms are non-toxic, non-GMO, gluten free, organic, and natural-- not many of the other lip balms that I've tried are.  They are not tinted, which is fine with me. Keeps my lips looking nice and a little shiny. All of the flavors are nice and very light. My favorite is the Asian Pear one. I love that all of the balms go on really smoothly, keeping my lips soft and smooth for a long time. I also like that it doesn't cake up and turn white or end up actually

Healthier Hot Chocolate #hotchocolatekcups

Company's Product Description Made in the U.S.A. Natural ingredients such as non-fat dry milk, whey, pure cane sugar, natural flavor, locust bean gum, salt, and stevia I'm not the biggest hot chocolate fan, but every now and then I do like to have a mug full.  We have a Keurig in the house that we make coffee and tea in, but with these I can now make hot chocolate as well. Pretty cool, actually.  My son thinks it's awesome because he loves hot chocolate. I don't like him to have too many sweets or too much of anything with artificial ingredients. Well, this hot chocolate is not the same as most other brands. It's natural, with better ingredients, nothing artificial. So, I don't mind so much when he drinks a bit more of it than usual throughout the week.  As for the taste, it's not as strong or as sweet, to me, which is good. I don't like things that are overly sweet. It's still full of chocolate flavor. 

Sweetsation Bubble Therapy #bubbletherapy

Company's Product Description All natural with Organic Ingredients Soothing, non-irritating 3 in 1 shampoo, body wash & bubble bath SLS-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, sodium benzoate-free, dioxane-free Biodegradable For kids and adults I love natural bath and beauty products. This Bubble Therapy bubble bath and body wash has a nice scent to it. It reminds me of some sort of tea. I like the design and the label is eye catching. It is a 3-in-1 product that can be used as bubble bath, body wash, and shampoo too. I've only used it as body wash and as shampoo and liked the result both ways. The actual product is a thick liquid and you don't have to use too much to get a nice lather. It leaves my skin and hair softer and smelling good.  I like the fact that the ingredients are natural and this can be used for my son too. He has a little bit of eczema and so it gets dry often. I'm a bit picky about what I use on his skin. This st

DollFace Makeup Brushes #DollFace1a

I love makeup and I find it absolutely necessary to have as many brushes as possible. Haha, I just think they can all be used for so many different things. Not all brushes are the same though; some fall apart within a matter of days or weeks. I hate that. This is a set of professional makeup brushes from DollFace . This is a small set of brushes. I like the colors of the brushes, as they match my bigger brush collection that I own.  I like the folding case that they come in. There are a few straps on the opposite side that can hold a few other brushes, if you own some. Now, these brushes are small and thin, so I can't see them really being used for much other than eye makeup application. Well, at least, that's what I normally use smaller brushes for. However, this is just fine since I love to try a variety of looks on my eyes. Having the right brush to do shadowing, highlighting, blending, etc. around your eyes is important if you want to get ce

Groom That Beard #Novatrimmer

      My husband needed a new pair of clippers for his beard. His other one is a bit too large and doesn't get a close enough shave. The Nova Rechargeable Clipper Kit is smaller and gets a closer shave. It is easy to charge and use. My husband said it works well and doesn't cause any pain or irritation like he has experienced with some other clippers. It comes with a little cleaning brush and although the box says it comes with a mini bottle of oil as well, there was none to be found in my box. We have oil from his other clippers to make sure to keep it oiled anyway. One issue? When my husband was cleaning it, the head of the clippers came off and it took a little bit of time to pop back on. It did continue to work fine after finally getting it back on. Is it even supposed to come off? Back to how well it works---I felt my husband's face and was surprised at how much closer of a shave it gives him. It left him looking handsom

Tubbki Resealable Baby Food Pouches #Reviews

Have you ever given your kids those little applesauce pouches that you can buy at the store? I know my son has always loved to eat those. I kind of stopped giving them to him a while back because you can't really see exactly what is put into those pouches. It bothers me quite a bit.  The Tubbki food pouches are perfect because I can choose every single thing that goes into the pouches.  These have a ziplock like zipper on the bottom that can be sealed, opened, and resealed again.  You can simply twist the top open and screw back on to close.You can put fruit and veggie purees, smoothies, pudding, yogurt, or whatever other kind of mushy type food inside. You can pop them in the fridge so they stay nice and fresh too. These are not hard to clean either---hand wash or dishwasher. I do like these for on the go. Extremely convenient, in my opinion. I really want to try these out with my baby when she's old enough to eat solids. For now, I use them for my s

Not Your Average Can Opener

Having a durable and super strong can opener is a necessity in many people's kitchens, like myself. I'd go crazy if I didn't have at least one.  There are many different types of both manual and electric can openers. I've owned both kinds, but I tend to use manual ones more often. I haven't had the best luck with most manual can openers though.  The KUKPU can opener I received for reviewing purposes may look like a plain can opener, but I can honestly say that it works better. It makes opening cans a breeze and doesn't cause too much strain on my hands or wrists. This is important to me, since at times my Carpal Tunnel acts up so badly. This can opener is very strong, durable, easy to clean, and opens cans smoothly, with the twist of its handle.  It's made of high quality stainless steel, meaning it shouldn't rust. The company says it shouldn't for an entire lifetime. Sounds good to me if it's true.  I've had
