Celestial Seasoning Taste Test

 I received some Celestial seasoning candy cane lane tea to try from influenster in my frosty voxbox. So I decided to have a taste test with my 2 kiddos. I had regular tea, and vanilla tea for this taste test along with the candy cane tea of course. I had them taste the regular tea first and they liked that. Next they tasted the vanilla tea. They said that one was really good. Now  when they got a taste of the candy cane lane tea you could tell by their faces that they fell in love. Thy said it was the best of them all. Which I would have to agree also. So if you haven't tried this celestial candy cane lane tea go out to the store and buy yourself a box.!!

Rimmel London

In my Frosty Voxbox from influenster I received 2 Rimmel London products to try. One was Scandaleyes eye liner. I couldnt wait to try this one. I fell in love with this eye liner when I read the name. It just sounds so tempting to try it immediately. When I put it on it glided across my eyes ever so smoothly. It is waterproof and lasts all day. This eye liner is bound to boost any woman's confidence, and catch roaming eyes of many. It is by far the best eyeliner iI have came across in a while. The next Rimmel London product came in handy right away which was gentle eye makeup remover. This makeup remover worked like a charm. It came right off on the first wipe which was definitely a plus in my book. Usually it takes about 3-4 wipes to get it all off, but one did the job perfectly. I did not realize what amazing products Rimmel London had until I got my Frosty Voxbox from influenster.

Frosty Voxbox

There was an Ecotools cushioned hairbrush, celestial candy cane lane tea, N°7 protect and perfect facial serum, NYC expert last lipstick (sugar plum), Rimmel London eye makeup remover, rimmel London scandaleyes eye liner, McCormick gourmet thyme, and strawberry fruit vine bites.

Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages

Last Christmas I brought my son a Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages Crawl Around Car. He was 11 months. I was a little skeptical about getting it at first because the price and I didn't know if it was worth it. Well on Christmas day when I put it together he fell in love with it instantly. Along with my two older daughters who were 2 and 5 at the time. It has different learning stages depending on your childs age so it is one of those toys that grows with your child. The only problem I had with the toy was it just sits directly on the floor. There is no board or padding in the bottom. But hey, my kids didn't mind so I couldn't complain. They had so much fun just helping me decorate it. It is a really cool toy for your child to have. It has been a year since he has had his car, and he and the girls still love and play with the Fisher Price car. It keeps them very busy and occupied. I am so glad I ended up getting it for him for Christmas. He is now 22 months old and the girls are 3 and 6. It is very colorful, and would catch any child's eyes because off the bright colors. It is made of a very durable red plastic. It has this wheel on it that is really cute. There are many bright buttons for the kids to press, and your child can play and learn at the same time. I ordered it from amazon for $56.99. I was looking it up earlier today and I seen that they also have a pink one for girls. It is really cute, and any little girl would love the pink and purples in this car. I signed up for a website called vocalpoint, which is a pretty awesome site. I have been a member since February 2013, and I love it. I would always go on there and read about there RSVP parties and how awesome they were. Well I got an e-mail one day to sign up for one of the RSVP parties. It was to have a party for toddlers trying out the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages toys. I qualified and got picked. I was so happy because it was my first part from them. I was looking at the toys and said "hey I got my son one of these last year." So I was hoping they did not send me another one of the cars. They send out two Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages toys for the party and some other goodies. I was so excited when my box arrived. Inside there was the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages Chair, and the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages Laptop. Soon as I opened the box my son went crazy. There were goodies for the kids. They gave me photo props for the kids to take pictures. There were goody bags to put party favors in. There were also these super cute Fisher Price T-Shirts for the kids, and there was a $10 Target gift card also.There were plenty of Fisher Price coupons to give to the parents also.The kids had lots of fun. The toys were a major hit for the kids. They loved the chair and the laptop. I have a 6 month old daughter who also loves the laptop. The chair is really cool also. When you sit in the chair it says 'you sat in the chair." Under the seat there is a little compartment, which my son puts his little cars in there. The chair is really nice. It is a bright yellow with blue legs, and again it is a sturdy plastic. On the back of the chair it is a smiley face. It is really cute. The laptop is very educational too. That one is my favorite because it is very educational. It teaches you colors, numbers, and letters while singing songs. It also comes in grey, white, blue, and pink. So you can choose what color you think is right for your child, or your little one can pick the color. Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages toys would make the perfect gifts for the holidays coming up, or birthdays. While I only talked about certain Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Smart Stages toys there sre plenty more to choose from. There are tea sets, walkers, cars, talking stuffed animals, books, a house, and a very cute Laugh an Learn My Pretty Learning Lamp. That is not even half of the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn toys. So head on over to Fisher Price and check out all the awesome Laugh and Learn toys Fisher Price has to offer. I would highly recommend these toys for 0-4 years of age.

Mrs. Meyers

Hello everyone, a couple months back I got accepted to share Mrs. Meyers cleaning products with my group of moms through green moms meet. I was so excited to have a cleaning product that was not toxic and okay to use around my little kiddos. When I used it I was like "wow, this is great." It smelled good, and most of all it cleaned really good too. They have a whole variety of scents to choose from. Like Basil, and lemon verbena. They both smelled awesome. My favorite was the basil though. Mrs. Meyers has a multi-surface everyday cleaner, dish washing liquid, and hand wash also. Although I must say it is a bit pricey, but worth every penny. I have been buying Mrs. Meyers multi-surface cleaner since I was introduced to it by green moms meet. I was recently shopping for cleaning supplies, and me I like to try new things. So I will go out and buy different scents, and different brands all the time. I am so loyal to Mrs. Meyers though now, so that is what I was searching for. I came across cranberry scent multi-surface cleaner this time. When I got home I went to work cleaning from top to bottom with Mrs. Meyers cranberry scented cleaner. It smells so good, and works wonderful. I love Mrs. Meyers cleaning products. If you happen to be out pick yourself up a bottle of Mrs. Meyers multi-surface cleaner. The cranberry scented one that I got from target is a limited edition seasonal scent, so grab it while you can, and enjoy the wonderful work and cleanliness of Mrs. Meyers Cleaning products. When your done why don't you reward yourself by washing off all those cleaners with Mrs. Meyers liquid hand soap.

Arm & Hammer

Arm & Hammer baking soda is awesome, I just had to say that. I recently received a free box to try from smiley360. Along with a guide on the many uses of baking soda. I swear out of all my 24 years on this earth I never knew you could use it for so many things. Boy have I learned a lot about baking soda. I always just used it for one thing and that was baking. Oh, and I cant forget about keeping a box in the fridge to keep food fresh.Baking soda can be used for cleaning, laundry, baking, and so much more. I used it to clean one day. I added about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to about a 1/2 cup of vinegar and a cup of water, and a couple drops of tea tree oil. The smell was amazing, and it cleaned so good. My marble counters and wooden dining room table was sparkling. I could see my reflection. Another use for baking soda is laundry. Every time I wash now I throw in a 1/2 cup of baking soda, and it get the strong odors out my clothes while boosting the cleaning power of my laundry detergent leaving my clothes smelling good and stain-free. The most common use for baking soda in my opinion is baking. I am always baking because that's what I love to do is bake and cook. I always make sure I always have a couple of boxes of Arm & Hammer baking soda. You can use it to brush your teeth. you can use it with your shampoo to fix damaged hair. baking soda can be used as a facial scrub and cleanser by mixing 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water. So the next time you look in your cabinet and see a box of  Arm & Hammer baking soda try out this amazing facial scrub, or cleaning solution.

  First let me just say I love Mary J. Blige. In case you dont know who Mary J. Blige is, she is an R&B Singer from New York. Her first album "Whats The 411?" was released in 1992. She has released plenty other albums, such as "My Life", "Share My World" and "No More Drama". "The London Session" to be released on December 2, 2014 will be the 13th album to be released by Mary. She is my favorite R&B singer. I have all of her albums and I love them just as much as this new one she has out now. Which by the way you can preorder/order at itunes or amazon. The London Session is an amazing album. She does it everytime she drops an album. What I love about Mary is that she has been through so much in her life, and she puts it into her music with so much passion and emotion. That is exactly what she did with this album. I absolutely love it. I listened to The London Session from the first song to the last. My favorite songs out of this album would have to be "My Loving", "Not Loving You", and "Therapy" I mean she really just put her heart in these songs. You can feel the hurt, the love, the pain, the emotion. "Not Loving You" is a really deep song, and I love it the words are so touching. You can feel every word right in your heart. The London session is a very deep and lovely album. Please show some love To Ms. Mary J. Blige and follow her on twitter @maryjblige. Be sure to also visit Mary on FacebookYoutube, and Official Mary J. Blige Website I participated in the Mary J Blige The London Sessions album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.

I started using the wubbanub about 2 years ago, and I love them. They are just so adorable. For those of you who don't know what it is, it is a soothie pacifier attached to a little stuffed animal. My son had the monkey, and my daughter who is four months now has the jasmine giraffe. She loves it. It is so easy for them to get into their mouth with the little stuffed animals. While it may not be for newborn to 2 months because of the size, which is not big at all but to a little tiny baby it probably just seems huge on there little tummies. Once they get about 3 months I think it is perfect because they start to interact more, and talk so they see this adorable little toy that doubles as a pacifier too. Moms, grandparents, and dads be sure to head on over to amazon and get your little bundle of joy a wubbanub. Did I mention they have a large selection to chooses from. These are the perfect gift for any mom or dad at a very low price.

Cupcake Molds Are Making A Hit In My Kitchen

These cupcake molds by California Kitchenware are very cute and functional. I love the colors, and the fact that it looks good and works properly at the same time. I have even used them as jello molds for the kids. My cupcakes and muffins come out perfect every time with these molds. I can not wait to order more. At first I didn't have a cupcake pan, but that was no problem because they are very sturdy and strong also. They held up fine on a cookie sheet by themselves, which I thought was great. I finally got a 12 cup cupcake pan, and I just drop my silicone cups in the pan and pour my batter in. These are highly recommended by me so I suggest you head over and get you some Cupcake Molds. Once you get there just search for California Kitchenware, and they come in a pack of 12. They have multi-colored ones, and white also. So have fun with your cupcake molds.

Somebody PinchMe

So today I got my mail, and my pinchme box came. It is great. I got a blueberry scented marker, which smells great by the way. I also got a fruit enzyme sleep spa 100% natural bamboo face mask, and I cant wait to use it. I got a small bag of gevalia house blend coffee. I tend to always get these so I have like 5 of them. Always good to have coffee so you don't run out. There was  a studio ink hallmark card that is so adorable. I think I may just give it to some cute little boy for his birthday. Don't know who though because we have quite a few in our family now. Next...wait for it...yup another sinful colors nail polish to add to the collection. This time it is an aquamarine, a very pretty blue. This is my third one from pinchme. first there was a very soft pink, then a very soft blue color and now this. I'm loving it. I was gonna buy my daughter some of those fat #2 pencils because she is in kindergarten, and think she can work better with them to get a better grip. Now I don't think I will get those because I got this paper mate lead pencil that is chunky and neon yellow. It is so adorable. So if I do get the pencils it will definitely be these paper mates. So that was my box, and the theme was back-to-school. I totally dig this box. I so can't wait for next Tuesday to see what else they have in store for me.

Must have for parents with infants

The SnotSuk Nasal Aspirator is a dream come true for me. When I first seen this I was like "wow" I gotta try this. I have a 4 month old daughter who always seems to be congested and throws up out her nose a lot. This is like a miracle. Its actually better than blowing in the babies nose so it can come out the other nostril. Which I thought was the only working way. The SnotSuk is so easy to use. It helps my daughter sleep and sound so much better at night. Another plus is it is dishwasher safe. I wish I could come up with these ideas myself. This one just takes the cake. It is wonderful. It kind of reminds me of the suction tubes they have at the hospital. Except they don't go all the way in the nose, and you are using your own oxygen of course. I just so love this.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Garlic Press

This garlic press is a very handy tool to have in you kitchen drawer. I love it because it is so convenient and handy. I also use fresh garlic a lot and I hate the old fashioned way of using a chefs knife. Now whenever i'm cooking I just pull out my drawer, and get my garlic press. I like the fact that it is stainless steel. A very attractive kitchen piece to have. It is the perfect size for any hands, very comfortable to grip, and use with no problem. The fact that it has hooks at the end of it makes it cool too because you can even hang them up. Another great kitchen gadget every cook should have. So get your orblue garli press now, and save you some time  in the kitchen.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Bee Sili Popsicle Molds

These popsicle molds are really cute and come in handy. You get 6 in a pack in bright colors. I love that they all come with matching tops, and could be used for dry snacks as well as popsicles. So far I have made yogurt pops, and juice pops, and they work great. I have put crackers in them also and the ones at the bottom tend to get stuck, but they are still great. I would mostly use them for freezer pops though. My kids love their Bee Sili Pops. So get yours while you can.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Children N Us Stroller Organizer

This has to be the best stroller organizer out right now. It can fit so much stuff inside of it you will be shocked. I fit 6 huggie juices, 2 apples, 2 plums, 4 diapers, a bottle of sun screen, my 10inch tablet, 3 PB&j sandwiches, 3 bee sili snack holders, and my wallet. That is a lot of stuff. I can barely fit that in my diaper bag. for now on this is the bag I will take every where with me. It would definitely be cool if there were more colors and designs to pick from. I definitely cant wait for more stuff from children n us. Thank you for making this wonderful and spacious bag. I would recommend this stroller organizer to parents with kids all ages because it can be used on bikes and in cars also. stroller organizerI received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Australian Tea Tree Oil

When I first got this oil I had to ask my mom what it was used for. So once I got the idea of what it was used for I started googling about it to get actual recipes. When I first opened up the box I was like  "mmmm this smells good, reminds me of spearmint." I would not mind my house smelling like tea tree oil at all. So first I  looked for some kind of cleaner. I used 1/2 cup white vinegar, 3 cups water, and 1/4 teaspoon tea tree oil. This could be used as an all purpose cleaner. I used it to mop the floors, wipe, the counters, and tables off, and also to clean the mirrors and glass. It worked so wonderfully. It had the house smelling so good too. While googling the uses for tea tree oil I learned that it can be used for many things from infections, cleaning to cradle cap. This is a wonderful oil to keep in your pantry. It can be used with things that you probably already have lying around the house. Australian Tea Tree Oil can come in handy for may things. I can not stress it enough, so if you are a parent who is trying to go green or you just wanna make your own natural products then get you some tea tree oil too.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Bake It Fun Silicone Baking Mat

The bake it fun silicone baking mat is a very wonderful product to have in the kitchen. Especially if you love to bake. I used this baking mat as soon as I got. I baked some peanut butter cookies. All you need is a cup of peanut butter, a cup of sugar, and 1 egg. For the first use I had to add a thin layer of vegetable oil to the mat. It was all ready to go after that. You only have to do that once. Its like seasoning a grill or pot. My problem is that a lot of stuff may say non-stick but really is not. Well that is not the case here at all. It really is non-stick. I have used it 4 times already just to make sure it was the real deal. My cookies came out looking like I had brought them from the store. I'm in love with this baking mat already. I can't wait to use it again, which will be tomorrow by the way. I definitely would recommend all the bakers out there to get 1 or maybe 2 or 3 of these bake it fun silicone baking mats. It's definitely worth it to always have one or a few handy in the kitchen.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter

Cleopatra's Shea butter is awesome. I have used this pure Shea butter for numerous things. I have used it for my 3 month old daughters diaper rash, my 3 yr old daughters eczema, and all the bumps and scratches that my 1 yr old son makes on himself whiled playing. I love Cleopatra's Shea butter. I have also use it for my kids hair also. I took about a 1\2 cup mixed with about a tablespoon of emu oil. I put it in the microwave for 10 seconds and stirred it up afterwards. It works great on hard to manage hair, such as thick curly hair. The one thing I absolutely love about Cleopatra's Shea butter is that it can be used for so many things and whatever you are using it for you dont need much of it. Just a little goes a long way. Soon as I get everything I need I am going to make a lotion. When I do I will post all the ingredients needed, as well as pictures.

I have been using yacon syrup for 3 weeks now. I figured I would try I out being as though I just had a baby and wanted to lose a couple of pounds. I take in about 2 tablespoons a day before breakfast and dinner. In the morning I usually mix it with my coffee which is quite good actually. So far I have lost about 6 pounds. So it definitely does work. I have had no side effects at all to the yacon syrup. I definitely recommend this to anyone trying to lose a couple of pounds.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using <a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=BOTTOMbfc710b34848f9fb0b77d370b243df6d" rel="nofollow">Tomoson.com</a>.

beechnut natural real food for babies

So I just received my package from green moms meet to try and share. It is 20 indivisually boxed jars with a $1 off 3 coupon inside. Flavors are just pineapple,pear and avacado, just pear and black cherry, just apple and aronia berry, and just honeycrisp apples. The flavors sound great and I can't wait to share.

Vitamin C Serum

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. I have used the Vitamin C Serum a couple times, although I don't think I need it right now because I'm only 24. It is supposed to be used on face and neck for aging, and is suposed to tighten th skin up. It is best used after a toner or moisturizer has been applied. Also it is best if used night and day or as often as needed. There are also many great recipes online to make your own moisturizers and toner to add your own vitamin c serum to. I would recommend this product for ages 25+. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Vitamin C Serum and Roseship Seed Oil

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Vitamin C Serum and Roseship Seed Oil are both great oils. The roseship seed oil I have been using on my legs along with a moisturizer. It makes my legs really smooth. And it is also supposed to help clear up dark spots. I haven't really used the Vitamin C serum a lot, only  twice. It is supposed to be used for aging, and since I'm only 24 I don't feel I need it now. You apply a couple drops on your fingertips and massage into face and neck after a toner or moisturizer is applied. I'm pretty sure it would work great.

Green Moms Meet

I am a mom ambassador on a website at . It is a great experience for me and my group of moms and kids. Mom ambassadors get special invitations to try different products with your group. The products range from food to cleaning supplies, medicines, and lots of stuff for kids and parents of young kids. So dfar I have tried Mrs. Meyers cleaning supplies. They sent me a big bag of sample hand soap, a big bag of sample countertop spray, a full sized bottle of dishwashing liquid, and a full bottle of countertop spray. They are very generous with the samples by the way. Mrs.Meyers cleaning supplies are the best i have ever used. They are environment friendly, and safe enough to use around kids. They also smell great. They come in scent such as basil, and lemon and plenty more. They all smell great and work wonders when cleaning any room. I have also received  one full size bottle of So Delicious coffee creamer, which is dairy free, 2 coupons for any So Delicious product that are worth $11.00 each, and a four pack of so delicious coconut milk latte. The coffee creamer actually tastes great to be dairy free. I would definitely buy, and recommend. Now the coconut milk Latte's were OK but they could be a tad bit sweeter. They are pretty good though I would not buy I would recommend for those who like Latte's. Overall So Delicious has some really good products that are worth it. I have also been chosen to try beechnuts 100% natural baby food, and natural raised farms fresh chicken. I definitely can't wait to getthese papackages in the mail to try and keep you updated.

100% Pure Emu Oil for Skin and Hair

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. I have been using 100% Emu oil for a week now for my skin and hair. It is great oil. I can tell the difference in my skin, and hair after only a week. I squeeze about 2-3 drops in my palm, rub together and massage onto my skin. This oil definitely gives my hair a glow that was not there before. I don't think I will be using haitpr grease anymore, thanks to this wonderful emu oil. The onlything I don't like is the smell. After a couple minutes it goes away though. I would definitely recommend this to allof you. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Adovia Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. The Adova dead sea mud mask is one of the best I have used  so far. Once I tried this mask this morning I felt an immediate difference in my skin. First off let me say as it dried over 10 minutes I could feel it tightening my face up. It looked icky while on my face, but it was awesome afterwards. After I rinsed it off my face had this glow and smooth texture to it that was not there before. I would definitely recommend this over going to a spa any day. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
