Scentsy review and giveaway with Edie Anne

Have you heard of Scentsy before? Well if you haven't, let me tell you a little about them.

Scentsy offers bases of a variety of different styles, colors, and tastes. I picked Bride Scentsy Warmer, Honeymoon Hideaway, Love Story, and Satin Sheets Scentsy Bars. This gift set comes with a warmer and three bars. It's packaged in a cute box adorned with a bow! The bar is a wax brick which breaks up into cubes and allows you to control how much you put into the warming base. It's a really fun product and my living room was instantly filled with the delicious aroma of amazing scents.! The only issue I have with this product was that the wax was a little bit hard to come out of the package. The wax is reusable, and so is the base!

I enjoyed all three scents that came with this set. The scents all have a "honeymoon" theme to them. So fun!
Here a run down on what they smelt like!
Satin Sheets:
Sensual and earthy sandalwood, perfectly paired with rich, warm vanilla.
Love spell: Innocent pink jasmine and sensual amber embraced by luscious dark chocolate.
Honeymoon hideaway: Escape to a secluded retreat of dew-kissed lily and tart-sweet kiwi, shaded by lush coconut palm.
 
My fav. was the Honeymoon Hideaway. I'm a sucker for coconut so...
 
This set would be a perfect gift for a newlywed or recently engaged couple! Click here to order it today!
 
To order go Edie Anne's Scentsy page here. Here a little about her:
 I live in Maine and being a Career Coach, Mentor and Recruiter is my passion and I get to do all that as an Independent Scentsy Family Director with The Scentsy Family full time! I absolutely love my work and my team.

Edie is giving 1 follower a free plug in warmer! How nice!

Thirty-One review and giveaway Melinda S.

Are you a mom on the go? Yes? Then I have a wonderful product for you! 

I got sent a timeless beauty bag to review from Melinda from Thirty One.

This bag is so versatile it's crazy! Just take a look at what you can do with it:


snack to go

put a portable DVD player or tablet in the top part and you have yourself a tv in your car!

make up

The bag has three different compartments and one area for your make-up brushes,snacks or anything else you'd like to stick there. 

I personally use mine for the car. I use to just take a bag full of books and coloring books to keep my little one busy in the car but now I use my Timeless Beauty bag! There's a buckle that let's you hook it right onto the seat. 

Overall, I like that this bag includes different sizes of holders so you can put certain things in certain ones! Like the other bag I reviewed I like the clear covering so I can see exactly what is inside each bag. Love the design and the fact that you can personalize it! It would make a great gift for your makeup loving friend! I also love the holders for your makeup brushes. Theres nothing I dislike more than putting my used brushes in a bag to see the residues fall everywhere.

These would definitely make some great gifts for birthdays or even Christmas! Get your Christmas shopping started early, they'll love them. Most of the products can be personalized so it would make it really special. Also if you think you would like to sell Thirty-One products you can talk to Melinda and she will definitely help you out. All orders get shipped directly to you, and I can personally say it comes really fast! Click here to go directly to her Thirty One page

Would you like to win one of your own Timeless beauty bag?Melinda was nice enough to give one lucky follower a $31 gift certificate to Thirty One. Just enter here:

Don't forget, For every $35 you spend Nov. 1-26, get a medium utility tote for $7!

ila

.
 

My sister is off at college by herself and I was thrilled to give her a ila Key ring alarm. What a great gift to put in her "off to college"gift bag! It made me feel better about her being away and I know it did my parents too! it has a alarm that omits an ear-piercing 130Db female scream that research has shown others are more likely to respond to than a traditional alarm, as well as disorientating an attacker.
 
I like the sleek look of ila.  A pretty silver chain dangles from the bottom of the device and in case of an emergency, a woman simply needs to grab the chain and pull it out to activate a 130db scream designed to disorient an attacker while at the same time increasing the chances that somebody will respond. The battery has a 3 year holding life when un-used, and the scream is easily silenced by replacing the pull pin.
I had to try this out. I was a little hesitant because I didn't know exactly how loud it was.The sound was surprisingly shrill and certainly realistic. I can’t imagine a thief not being alarmed if they suddenly heard that!
 
Overall, I found the ila Security products to be easy to use, effective and so stylish. I hope I’ll never need to use them, but I’m certainly glad to have them just in case. An ila alarm would make a great gift for a friend or a teenage daughter and is a handy item to pick up for yourself as well. Check out the collection today and find a personal alarm that suits your style while it keeps you safe!

Lumnique Candles #Holiday Gift Guide 2013

Lumnique Candles specializes in personalized scented candles. Each 8 oz. candle is made-to-order using a soy wax blend, clean burning dual cotton wicks, eco-friendly color dyes, and essential fragrance oils that retain their scent while the candle burns. Mother's Day is quickly approaching. What better gift than to give mom a beautiful glass candle that is her favorite color and scent. She will absolutely love it. Luminque Candles also make excellent hostess, housewarming, birthday and any other occasion presents. The recipient will appreciate the effort that you put into designing the candle especially for them!

I love candles for many reasons. Mainly they relax me. That is why I'm excited to share with you this company!

The candle is quality made and the glass is very sturdy and durable. The fire color is a bold and rich red which reminds me of a tropical island. I chose coconut because the light fruity scent reminded me of summer too, even though I had never smelled it before.

I love the double wick of the candle, it's a fun twist on a regular candle. The candle smells delicious when burning and in no time the fruity aroma hugged my room. I really like that Lumnique made a candle with eco-friendly materials. I'd like to think that the candle brings tranquility and a peaceful environment into my home. If you're looking to de-stress, lighting a Lumnique candle and sitting back and relaxing would do just the trick.

I also love that they send you matches! I often don't have a lighter around me so this was nice.

Thinking of purchasing one? Here's how:

  1. Choose Intention
  2. Choose Color
  3. Choose Fragrance
  4. Choose Gift Set
  5. Personalize
Fun!
They have fun scents like:
Pear, cucumber mint, sweet pea, cookies for Santa and much more!

Do you know someone who loves candles? They would make a great Christmas gift!

Costume Discounters Toddler custumes Doc McStuffins Review

Is it really September?!  Where did this year go?!

Fall is near and that means Halloween is right around the corner! My daughter can't wait!  Recently,I got the chance to review a costume from Costume Discounters and choose the Doc McStuffins costume. She is in love with Doc! I didn't tell her it was coming I wanted it to be a surprise. Costume Discounters offers this costume for $29.58, save 20% by using the code FUN20. The price for me was fine considering everything that comes with it.  This unique doctor costume comes with a faux white lab coat and name tag that will fit your child perfectly, pink and purple leggings, a toy stethoscope, and a headband. Also included with this costume is a colorful purple and white striped dress that features a red sparking bottom that give this entire costume its unique look. Medium (fits most size 3T-4T), Large (Fits most size 4-6x)

When I gave my daughter the package to open, her eyes lit up when she saw Doc McStuffins inside! She immediately tried it on and wanted to play Doctor!

This costume is very comfy. I like that it has leggings and a jacket for the fall weather coming up.

You can find more costumes here.

Brite ideas f

 Today I would like to introduce you to a wonderful company called  Brite Ideas. This company makes the most fantastic realistic flameless candles I have ever seen! As a person with a on-the-go 4 year old it is dangerous for me to burn "real flame" candles, so I was really excited to be doing this product review

Each flameless candle is individually hand casted before the art work is transferred by hand in a multi-step process, giving each piece a special uniqueness.  The 5 hour timer makes it easy to come home to candlelight every night.  At the time you wish the candle to start flickering, slide the switch at the bottom to the right (TIMER), your candle will flicker for 5 hours then automatically shut off.  It will come on again at the same time the following day.  To reset the time your candle comes on, simply slide the switch to OFF and then back to TIMER, at new desired time.

We have four collections: Child's, Romance, Beach, and Special Occasions.

My Review: The generous folks over at Brite Ideas sent me 1 of their flames candles for my product review. I received the Moon Cloud. First of all, I am really impressed with how realistic these candles look! My daughter is the one who claimed it first. She carried it around with her all day. Even showing it off to family members. She was very proud! The flameless candle gives off a soft flickering yellow light. It' s very relaxing. My daughter ending up taking it to bed with her! Sleeping with it all night long. I really liked the soft beautiful paining on them. They are hand painted!

Giveaway: One lucky winner is going to receive a flawless candle of their choice!

Zarbee's seasonal relief

We all have heard of Zarbee's childrens cough syrup and Zarbee's adult sleep, right? Well, they have come out with a new cproduct! Introducing new, Zarbee's seasonal relief. It's natural,safe and effective. 

Until the last couple of summers, I have never really had a problem with allergies. I have struggled with drippy sinuses, cough, water eyes and the sore throat that results from it.  I  have tried so many products, over the years, to give some relief.  All of them designed to relieve or mask symptoms and get us through the worst of the season. A popular one even makes me sleepy! I don't like that! It's non-drowsy and non-habit forming.  Its all natural oroduct becuase of the main ingredient,Butterbur Plant Extract Ze339. Recently, I was introduced to Zarbee's seasonal relief and I feel so much better about using them for myself. Best thing is it's all natural! Here is some info. behind Zarbee's:

As a pediatrician and founder of Zarbee’s, I am thrilled that parents are learning more about safe and natural cough remedies for their families and that you’ve chosen Zarbee’s as your answer for bringing comfort into your home during those rough moments. In 2007, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration ruled that children’s cough syrups were unsafe for kids under the age of four, I experienced first-hand the frustration that many of my patients also expressed. As a father of four boys, my wife and I would do anything to make our children feel better in their time of need, but (in the past) struggled with the available options for cold medicine. This frustration over not being able to offer relief to my boys and my young patients (and their parents) turned into passion to find an answer. I discovered a compelling clinical trial showing dark honey was effective at calming coughs and sore throats in children and young adults. With the help of my test subjects (aka our four sons), I was able to create a great tasting, all-natural, vitamin-enhanced, safe and very effective product, Zarbee’s All Natural Cough Syrup, specifically designed to keep

I was given samples of Zarbee's seasonal relief and took it right away! I like that they were small round pills opposed to large wide ones. There easy to swallow and had no side effects. It really helped my allergy symptom's! It relieves congestion and pollen defense. Thanks' Zarbee's! Zarbee's allergy relief is $8.99 a box. I think the price is very reasonable. Pick up a box at your local CVS and Target nationwide in the allergy aisle. 

  • Physician developed & recommended


  • Proven congestion relief*


  • Defense against pollen


  • Contains 10 tablets

    The lunch punch~Making food fun!


    The lunch punch sent me this super amazing sweet and puzzle cutters to try out! My 4 year old and I love it! It's so easy to use that even C can make sandwiches with it! She's been asking to make cookies with it! I think pancakes would work well too! We'll have to try some soon!

    The Sweet set includes a cupcake, cake, ice cream cones and gum ball machine! My daughter choose to test out the cake first. The sandwich was easy to cut out. Very easy to clean. My daughter loved eating off the candles one by one. =)

    I choose the Match & Munch for my older two. They thought it was neat that they could put together there pb&j.
     We love our Lunch Punches!

    The lunch punch has three other sets of cutters, C Cutters and VRRRM and Sand*wishes*

    How fun!

    SophieLaVae

    Have you been looking for a new way to display your photos? I was! That is why I contacted Joni at Sophie LaVae on Etsy. I was looking for a new way to spruce up my entry way. I didn't have anything on my walls and I didn't want plain ol' picture frames.

    Joni let me choose a frame from her shop. I choose this one:
     
    -Painted black and slightly sanded through to brown base coat
    -Four rubber coated wires stretched across and pulled through buttons on sides of frame
    -16- 1 3/4" clothes pins included
    -Frame made from 1 5/8" X 3/4" solid pine
    -Great for photos, memos and bulletins, Christmas cards, school pictures, friends graduation pictures, souvenirs and mementos, (play bills, tickets, postcards, etc. )
    -Two holes drilled through top board, 16" apart, for easily connecting to wall
    -Screws and anchors included
    -Chair buttons for covering screw holes included
     
    I loved that it had tiny clothes pins to hold up the pictures. They are so dainty and cute. You can also add a design on them by using scrap book paper. I was thinking about doing that! Just think of the themes you can do with that. Christmas, Halloween...
     
    You can also put your Christmas cards  in it this December.
     
    This frame is very sturdy. I love the dark black mixed with brown base coat.
     
    This frame was shipped so fast also!
     
    I think these frames would make a perfect house warming gift or wedding gift!

    Barts cookies

    I got a yummy review for you all today! Cookies from BartsCookies.com I received his fresh chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip peanut butter.The first thing I noticed was their cute little round shapes. It looks like he used a ice cream scooper. There so cute!

    Bartman packaged these in a zip lock baggie. They stayed fresh!These cookies have great texture. There a little smooth and a lil' crunchy. These little baby's are packed full of chocolate chips! The chocolate was oozing out of them once I bit into it! The chocolate was very smooth and sweet. The peanut butter chocolate chip was my fav!It had real chucks of peanuts baked right into it! Mmm...I'm making myself hungry!I think I'm going to eat another one right now!

    The different types of cookies that he makes are pretty simple. Dark Chocolate Chip, Milk Chocolate Chip, Dark + Milk Chocolate Chip Combo, Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Chip + Macadamia Nuts. Pretty much all of your classic cookies. They also have a gluten free option for all of the cookies.

    Another thing I loved about Barts Cookies is that he makes them with simple ingredients!

    Fun Fact: Bart Smith owes his success in business to his cookies. Whenever he has an interested client, rather than give them a business card, he would offer to send them a dozen of his cookies.

    Kid Kovers review and GIVEAWAY

    It's officially SUMMER TIME! Time for swimming! You know when you get out off the pool and only have a "normal house hold towel" it just doesn't keep your child warm? Well, I have found the place to buy hooded towels! Kid Kovers.

    To begin with, its ADORABLE!!!  I mean, come on!  I love how incredibly soft this towel is.  I have washed it a couple of times and it just gets better and better and the bright colors do not fade.

    This hooded towel is made with a full-sized 30"x52" bath towel.

    Perfect to snuggle an infant, and large enough for a toddler or 10 year old.

    This gentle and sweet Princess pattern is perfect for you princess especially when complimented by a hot pink towel!

    Can be used after bath time, at the pool or beach.

    They put Charlotte's name in a bold purple color.

    It not only kept her warm after her bath, it dried her off fast. It's amazingly absorbent.

    I've seen hooded towels run any where from $30-48, Here at Kid Kovers the hooded towel seen above is only $28! Great deal!

    FroufrouAndCompany


    Spring is officially here and pools are OPEN! What does that mean? Summer is right around the corner! Our daughter loves water and we enjoy spending time outside around and in the pool. Finding the right swimsuit for my daughter was very important to me.

    I am thrilled to tell you all about FroufrouAndCompany. They make the cutest bathing suites for your little ones! Soft fabric and colors, cute designs and matching accessories! Froufrou & Company celebrates the innocence and girliness of childhood with posh swimwear that is unparalleled both in style and quality.

    Our couture babykinis are for the unapologetically girly-girl with a love of fashion, frills and fun. Each piece is handmade in the USA with special attention to detail and the highest standards for quality and craftsmanship.

    Here is there kate. I got to review the pink and yellow suite. My daughter just loved it! She had to wear it around the house for a while. ;D It's very soft and the pink and yellow go so well together. This sweet little suit is just as cute as it is classy! The ruffled neckline is accented with a small bow and the suit is lined with a fun patterned fabric so it is just as cute on the inside as it is on the outside!


     emma is another darling suite they have. A two pice yellow and softer pink than the Kate.
    It's all about the accessories, and no babykini is complete without this adorable headband to match! It is made out of a soft mesh ruffle and a bow to match any swim suit in the store.
     
    This pretty little suit has the flair to make any little girl smile. A dainty ruffle on the hips and another on the top are accented with bows.



    My personal fav. is coco.  It is layered with mesh ruffles and topped with two little bows at the strapsso so sweet!
     
    If you'd like to make a perchance you can find them on Etsy.

    Dress Sparkle


    Jackie is a enraptured with old vintage things and have an idea of how she will begin to incorporate the things she can purchase on Etsy, namely pillowcases, old linens, lace, etc; into the garments she is sewing, but will also still use modern fabrics in the garment, an upcycle so to speak. I am a shabby~ chic addict, and want to work with old and new...this is he desire, thus my tag line of 
    A BIT VINTAGE, A BIT MODERN, A BIT FUN, A LOTTA SPARKLE.

     I love everything Vintage, and my handmade clothes are going more and more vintage all the time. I don't do many "vintage reviews" so I was excited to review my daughter this beautiful dress from Dress Sparkle on Etsy!

    This dress is a lovely designer fabric with the primary colors of a soft cream background with pink and mauve colored roses. The sleeves, and ruffle are in a pink and cream flower. 
    This dress measures 26." from shoulder to hem length.

    Here are some up close pictures to show the detail in this dress:



    As soon as she tried it on, my daughter was dancing and twirling.It fit her well.  My favorite part about this dress is the lace. It's so dainty and pretty it pulls this dress all together! I think this dress would be perfect for pictures or a tea party ;D 

    You can tell that she puts her all in making these beautiful dresses!
