Phone Soap Review

Free Product Received



Raise your hand if you are a techie.... Mine is raised high and even waving! 
PhoneSoap arrived and I thought "this is pretty cool, we will give it a shot" but this was so much more than a review. This was an eye opener.

For those who do not know, we have a toddler. He is 17 months old. He likes to put things in his mouth, especially my cell phone. PhoneSoap sent me this product to review, but really it was a life changer for me. 

This product sanitizes and charges at the same time. Sanitizing a cell phone is something I never really thought about until I started reading more information about this product. Did you know that your cell phone has more germs on it than a door knob? More than a toilet lid? How about this one... your cell phone has more germs than a toilet seat. Yes, you read that correctly, more germs than a toilet SEAT. 

Now its time to get a little personal for this review. Have you ever used your phone in the bathroom? Its okay to confess, because I will raise my hand to that as well. BUT did you know that 1 in 6 cell phones has fecal matter on it? A scientific study shows that a cell phone has 18 times the bacteria than that of a public restroom. Again, you read that right... the places we never desire to be and only use in emergencies and would absolutely never tell our kids to put anything from in there in the mouth, but yet let them suck and teethe on devices daily. 
See why this review was an eye opener for me?

This product works by using UV light to sanitize our devices while charging them at the same time. Its quick and painless and could save our families from many illnesses especially this cold and flu season.

What a perfect gift for this holiday season, something that is versatile enough to give to anyone. Man, woman or even teen. I look at germs a lot differently now that I have read the information about this product and will absolutely continue to use it.

Want more information on how to purchase this awesome item? Check out their PhoneSoap purchasing page. This product retails for $59.95 and is worth every single penny, if nothing else for the peace of mind that my child will not be ingesting bathroom particles.

Winterland Inc Christmas Decorations Review

Free Product Received



Winterland Inc is one of those online stores that I could not pull myself away from. Their products are quite simply stated well above the rest. I had such a hard time closing my computer because I spent awhile just browsing their enormous selection of Christmas decorations, both indoor and outdoor.

When looking for a review item I found this amazing 9 foot long ornament garland. I knew immediately where we were going to put it. We have a wide opening connecting our dining room to our living room. Usually I just hang cards there, but I knew this year that was about to change!

I never decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Last year we made a tradition of decorating after Thanksgiving dinner, but this year I might just wait until Black Friday. A Christmas tree and a curious toddler have me a bit nervous.





This ornament garland is durable, and best of all made from plastic while still looking like it was made from glass. That is a major perk for me. The colors are vibrant and made me not only think about Christmas but took me back to a great time here at our home several years ago when we celebrated Mardi Gras.

This garland will be a fixture in our home for many Christmas seasons to come, but it very well could make another appearance for a party a bit earlier in the year.

Check our Winterland Inc for all of your decorating needs. If they do not have it, you don't need it.

Label Daddy Review

Free Product Received



The opportunity to review things for our son is always a warm welcome in our home.

Label Daddy was an awesome company to work with recently simple because of the ease of ordering.

I was able to obtain some awesome labels that were added to our sons huge book collection so that when he shares books with friends and family they always know where to bring them back. These are also great to let people know your childs allergies or to send them off to camp.

As our son gets older and he gets more and more things (especially books) sometimes its hard to keep everything organized, but this is a great option.

Santa can even label books or other fun items with Label Daddy!!

I want to touch on the ease of ordering with this company simply because it was absolutely one of the easiest things I have ever created.

You enter the name to appear on the labels and pick an icon. Yes, thats it. They have an awesome database full of fun things to add to labels and even have common household labels that can be designed. Perfect for the kitchen and those of us who like to can different things.

I recommend this company for anyone looking to organize, looking to make sure their kids know whose things belong to who and in general anyone looking to add a custom label to anything.

Valentia Skin Care Product Review

Free Product Received


First and foremost I will announce here that in a mere few days I will be turning 29 for the first time. I know many more 29's are on the way, but this is a first for me and wow-wee has the time flown by. I feel that the last few years have been a blur and I have really not taken care of my skin very well.

So, recently I received Valentia Even Glow Serum to review. I thought to myself "there's no time like the present" especially with preserving one of my biggest pieces, my skin. 

I will begin by saying the ordering process was SUPER easy and they sell this through Amazon.com for a reduced price of $35.00. It is Prime eligible for those of us who are addicted to Amazon.com and need that awesome free 2 day shipping.

So I got the product and decided this would be part of my nightly routine. I used it when I got out of the shower and on the very first night I noticed how silky this product felt even when applying it. That is a perk for me because I simply can not stand a product that feels sticky, especially on my face.
As the nights went on this routine became something I looked forward to because it was easy, and I really feel that it is working. 
Another perk is that it doesn't stink. I think some facial products have a very heavy smell that over takes the senses. This one has a great citrus scent. 

I have to say that this is a great product and I recommend this for everyone. Its well worth the money and the product does not take a ton per application, so this bottle gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

I will continue to use this product with great joy as it is safe to use and makes my skin feel awesome!

Appleletics Bootcut Yoga Pants Review

Disclosure: Free Samples Provided



Okay ladies this one is for you (and for the guys lurking to find the perfect gift for the yoga loving women in their lives!) 


I have to admit that while I am not what anyone would call a yoga buff, but I enjoy the comfort of a good pair of yoga pants. When I got a pair of bootcut yoga pants  from Appleletics I was super excited!

These are not only comfortable, but they wash and wear very well. Since getting these for review I have washed mine and gotten a lot of use from them. They did not get runs in the fabric upon washing and they seem to be holding up better than a lot of other yoga/lounge pants that I have had in the past.
The best part of all? You read correctly above, these are bootcut! My absolute favorite cut for jeans and now for yoga pants as well.

I got to try out the aqua colored pair featured on the far left in the photo above, and while I have wanted to get a photo wearing them, I have not had the ability as we have been a bit under the weather. These pants have been my comfort on the days when pajamas weren't enough, but getting dressed just wasn't happening either.

Here is a bit of information from their website about these great pants:

Flex Watches Review

Disclosure: Free Samples Provided



I recently had the opportunity to review an awesome product from Flex Watches. As with a lot of reviews at first you do not know what to expect from a company, but I have to say I was surprised.

This is the watch I got to review. It is the White Slim version of their sports watch. This absolutely goes with everything. I love that the band is flexible and does not hurt my wrist when wearing it at all.

The numbers are easy to see and as you can see below I have pretty small arms and hands, so this slim version was perfect as I feel that most watches take over my arm and try to swallow it whole.

I love this company for another reason. Buy a watch- Feed a child. A brief explanation of their story:
Born and raised in Southern California, the Flex founders grew up around the latest trends in apparel, music, and fashion. In 2011 they created a watch to raise funds for the impoverished children of Rojo Gomez Mexico. Following a successful fundraising campaign (providing over 15,000 meals) they decided to expand. In 2011 Flex partnered with over 20 organizations encompassing everything from fighting cancer and helping injured veterans, to providing clean water and food to children in need

This company has great morals, products for everyone and I highly recommend this for an awesome Christmas gift for anyone! You will not break the bank buying one of these for someone either. The Slim Watch pictured above retails for $30!

Proper Pillow Review


Disclosure: Free Samples Provided

Recently I had the opportunity to review Proper Pillow and boy was I surprised. We all have that favorite pillow that we love, and honestly we keep it way too long. This is the best replacement for those flat overused, old and ugly pillows. 
This is one of the most comfortable pillows that I have ever put my head on. Best part? There is a special made place for us side sleepers to lay our heads. 
So why is this pillow so great? It has tons of great benefits! 
I gathered some information from their website after getting a few of the best nights rest of recent times even while fighting sinus issues. I did not need to add an extra pillow or anything, just laid down and got some much needed rest.
Back to those benefits:
The Proper Pillow combines comfort with corrective and rejuvenating therapeutic properties that support optimal alignment of the head, neck and spine. The benefits are powerful and real, helping to solve the chronic sleep-related problems that negatively affect people during the day:
  • Neck pain and stiff neck
  • Lower back pain
  • Headaches
  • Sleep apnea
  • Snoring
The Proper Pillow was designed for total comfort, total support and ease of use:
  • Standard Queen Size – 65cm x 45cm x 12cm
  • 4-Layer Design with Patent Pending Inner Orthotic
  • Ergonomic construction comforts all body types
  • Cooling comfort layer disperses excess body heat
  • Non-latex, hygienic and washable
This pillow gets a 2 thumbs up from us and would make a great gift for the holiday season approaching for just about anyone. 





Check out this video of people trying Proper Pillow for the first time. Its great!
