Must Haves For Your Purse!

One of my favorite parts about being a blogger is the cool new products I get to test out and try, and I have found SO many of my very favorite must have products this way. I now have tons of things that I use every day that I have found through my blog, and the latest products I got to test out were no different.
Burt's Bees has these awesome new facial cleansing towelettes. They are perfect for putting into your purse or your car to have on hand for when you need them. I keep some of them at work (I'm a waitress and my face is always super oily after a shift!) These are the pink grapefruit scent, which includes real pink grapefruit extract. This gives your face a tingly feel and a nice "zing" when you use them. These wipes are really good for removing all kinds of makeup, even eye makeup, and they are also really good for when your face is oily. Like I said, I love to use them after a long shift at work or after a workout! At $6.00, they are a real steal!

As most of you guys know, I am a sucker for good makeup, and anytime I have the chance to try out a new product, I am down! First of all, I got to try the Nothing! Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip and Cheek Creamy Oil, ($18, What I really love about this product is that it is a double duty product that can work for both lips and cheeks. A little bit goes a long way, and you can just apply a tiny bit to hydrate and color your face! It starts as a cream and sort of transforms into an oil, and it's made from some really wholesome natural ingredients.
Also, I got to try out the Avon Big Mascara, which is a steal at only $9. It's a really great product, that does a lot to really volumize your lashes. It has a unique fiber blend that really boosts lashes. I am a big fan of Avon since I was a little girl, so this is an amazing product! 

Moist Repair and Hair Play- Great Products (As Always!) From KMS California!

We recently got a chance to review some great products from my *VERY* favorite line of hair care products, KMS California. They are the makers of so many of my favorite hair products, so I am always excited and extremely pumped when I get the chance to try something new! The Moist Repair line was something I was extremely anxious to try. I have super dry, brittle, very naturally curly hair, so I am always trying to replenish moisture. The Moist Repair conditioner is a great product that helps to repair and condition hair. It improves elasticity and manageability, and is an all around great conditioning product for dry or damaged hair. It smells amazing, and it is one of my favorite conditioners that I have ever tried. The leave in conditioner has also become one of my favorite products. It is so easy to use, you just spray it into towel dried hair and style as usual. It's a very weightless conditioner, which is great for me, since leave in conditioners usually make my hair feel very greasy.
I also got to try the Makeover Spray from the Hair Play line. I really, really like this line of products, they are very versatile and I am really into them. This Makeover Spray is a great dry shampoo-like product which is perfect for me. I love, love, LOVE dry shampoo, it is a lifesaver for me, and really keeps my hair looking and feeling great in between washes.

All in all, I am very impressed and very happy with these products from KMS. KMS is an amazing brand, and I highly recommend them!

Kickin' The Kindergarten Germs With The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner!

With my youngest now in kindergarten, that means all of my kiddos are in school full time. Along with that, that also means an influx of germs. We are all really getting used to dealing with all of the colds, allergies and other sickness that comes along with having a houseful of kids in school! However, one good thing is that now dealing with sick little ones is going to be even easier, because now we have the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner!

First of all, I am a huge fan of Temporal thermometers. They are so much easier to use than other types of thermometers, and I can not believe that I lived so long without one! It's crazy how much one little invention can simplify your life! The ability to check your kid's temperature with a quick swipe across the forehead is just amazing to me. It's so simple to use, and it's incredibly accurate. Plus, what could be better than getting your child's temperature reading in around 2 seconds? For me, that is the worst part of taking a temperature, is the time it takes to read the temperature.

The Soft Glow display provides a gentle backlight which makes it easy to check your child's temperature in any light. This is a great feature to have when you are checking a temperature in the middle of the night. Another great feature of this thermometer is that the beeping sound that indicates scanning can be turned on or off. This could be very helpful if you have a sick, sleeping baby that you are trying not to disturb. Another really great feature of this thermometer is that it automatically holds the last eight temperature readings so that you can check the progression of a kid's fever. 

The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner is really a great product and I am so glad that we had the chance to check it out. It is definitely going to come in handy for us this school year, while we are dealing with germs! Sold in major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s, the Smart Glow thermometer’s suggested retail price is $49.99.

Coming Back!

Hey guys.... Wow it feels crazy to be back to blogging after so long. I just looked, and the last post I wrote was 7 months ago. I can't believe it has been that long. My life has completely and totally changed in the last year. I got a divorce, went back to work, moved out of my house and in with my sister, moved back out and back into my house, and reconnected with my high school boyfriend, the love of my life. To say that my life has changed would be an understatement. 

Now, things are finally coming together for me. I am happier than I have ever been in my entire life, and life is finally starting to calm down and fall into place. It is a very good feeling, and I am very happy to get some normal back into my life, and very happy to be able to start blogging again. 

I'm excited to share my life with you guys again, and I am excited to let you guys in on some of the very exciting things that have been happening in my life over the past few months. I can't wait to start reviewing again, especially with the holidays coming up, and I can't wait to start traveling with my new (bigger!) family additions! 

You will be hearing a lot from me in the coming days and weeks, so get ready to get to know me better than you ever have before!

Dasani Drops Are a Must Have In My Purse! #DASANIdrops

Disclosure: I received sample product and/or compensation in exchange for this review. However, all thoughts and opinions are completely my own.

As many of you guys know, I have been trying really hard lately to improve my diet and eat more healthily. I'm really working hard because I want not only to lose weight, but to get my blood pressure under control as well. Along with eating at home more, cutting back and sugar and processed foods, I am also trying to always drink more water. I really love drinking water, but sometimes, it is just a little boring. That's why I really, really love Dasani Drops. I love Dasani Drops because I can keep them tucked away in my purse and have them ready whenever I need to give my water a little boost. I find that Dasani Drops are especially great for using at restaurants, when everyone else is ordering drinks and it's really hard to resist the temptation. Dasani Drops give me the flavor I need so I can get more water into my daily routine. They are also great for when I'm working out, when I'm at work, or just hanging out at home and having a hard time resisting the urge for a sugary sweet drink.

Dasani Drops come in six different flavors: Cherry Pomegranate, Grape, Strawberry Kiwi, Pineapple Coconut, Pink Lemonade, and Mixed Berry. I love the fact that Dasani Drops have zero calories per serving, and Dasani uses natural fruit flavors. I am really happy that I have had the chance to add Dasani Drops to my daily routine, and they are a great addition to my little bag of goodies! Try them today!
