TownleyGirl Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by TownleyGirl for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

As my daughter is getting older she is getting more interested in painting her nails, making her own headbands and lip balms. I don't want to get her regular nail polish because most have harsh chemical smells and aren't the easiest to get off so I am very thankful for a company called Townley Girl who makes kid friendly beauty products.


I love that Townley Girl provides beauty products in a number of fun Disney, Dreamworks and Emoji themes.I was recently sent a handful of products to test out and share with all of my readers. The image above shows all of the products I received in my fun review box.



Pictured above is a Tsum Tsum Ready, Set, Go! Cosmetic Set which currently isn't listed on their website. It includes a small coin purse, a lip balm key chain, lip balm jar, a lip gloss tube, a bottle of nail polish and a thing of hand sanitizer all featuring the fun and lovable Tusm Tusm characters. I am not sure why this set isn't currently listed on their website the only thing I can think of is perhaps there is printing error on the sanitizer because it says "Strawberry flavored" instead of scented so that is the only thing I can think of because otherwise this is a great set. The only product I didn't like was the pink lip balm jar because the consistency was too thick, but the cute jar can always be re-purposed. All the products in this set have nice scents. I give this set a 4 out of 5 stars due to the pink balm and I was also a little surprised the lip gloss key ring didn't come with one of the cute little Tusm Tusm characters attached at the top like their other lip gloss set they sell.

Frozen 18 pc nail polish set (Retail $14.99) - Their nail polishes don't have overly strong scents, and even if your daughter makes a mess while painting her nails this polish not only easy wipes off when wet but after it dries it peels off. The shades go along with the movie nicely and the bottles are easy to hold, I give this set 5 out of 5 stars.



Emoji Hair Brush (Retail $4.99)- This brush I did not personally test out because I own one of their other brushes that is made just like this so this specific brush I gave to a friend of mine.I like their brushes because the brush itself is sturdy and so are the bristles. The bristles are spaced far enough apart this brush helps detangle your hair without getting stuck or pulling your hair out. This brush gets a 5 out of 5 stars, it is a great brush with a fun printed design.



Trolls 6 Pack Headband Set (Retail $6.99) -These headbands can be worn in a number of different ways, you can wear each headband without a clip or you can attach a clip to the headband or you can wear just the hair clips. It comes with six headbands and six clips, I think they did a pretty good job with providing an assortment of band prints and clip styles. This set gets a 5 out of 5 stars.

Trolls Super Shine Lip Jellies (Retail $6.99) - This lip jellies set comes with five translucent lip balms in the flavors cotton candy, grape, bubble gum, lemon, and watermelon although I tested the watermelon one you can't really taste the flavoring. The balms are moisturizing and the formula isn't sticky and it isn't thick so it glides on smoothly and leaves your lips with a nice shimmer. This set gets a 4 out of 5 because the balms aren't flavored (but then again I wouldn't recommend licking or eating any kind of lip balm/lip gloss/lip stick anyways). 

PRIZE ALERT:
Two lucky winners are each going to receive a Trolls Super Shine Lip Jellies Set.

Tat-A-Saurus Review & Discount!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by
Tat-A-Saurus for the review free of charge.****


When out in public places with a large crowd the last thing you want to think about is your child becoming lost. It is something many parents don't think will ever happen to them, but things happen and sometimes during that split few seconds you aren't paying attention your child may go look at something or stop to look at something and you keep walking not realizing they aren't right behind you. Aside from going to the security staff and having them help look for your child what is another way you can ensure you can find your child faster? If they are young and don't have a cell phone you can have them keep an emergency contact bracelet or card with them but I recently found an Etsy shop called Tat-A-Saurus that not only sells temporary tattoos but they also sell children's emergency contact temp tattoos that I think are a pretty neat idea and it is something that is always on the child so it could easily be spotted and will help your child return to you faster.

 



The emergency contact temporary tattoos feature a cartoon character along side either "If lost please call", "Peanut allergy, please call", "I am non verbal please call"  or "Egg allergy" and the phone number of your choice. For my review I wanted to go with the "If lost please call", next month we are going on a family trip to Disneyland and I thought these would be good to have even if they don't come into play it is nice to have the piece of mind. Just like with regular temporary tattoos you will want to clean the spot you will be applying the tattoo, Tat-a-saurus provides you with alcohol pads to clean the spot and remove any oils from the skin. Then simply use a damp cloth to apply the tattoo, let dry and you are good to go. You should avoid placing it in a spot where they will be washing, for example the forearm would work the best so the tattoo stays in tact.





I tested one of these temporary tattoos on my son and it went on smoothly, however he moved his arm while I was trying to remove the backing of the tattoo which made the character get a little mushed together so I ended up not taking a photo of that part of the process. The tattoo lasted until the next day and it didn't leave any residue or redness behind to indicate it was there. The emergency contact tattoos sell for $10 for a set of eight. Tat-a-saurus also sells a variety of birthday party favor tattoos, custom tattoos, pregnancy tattoos and more! Head over to see what they have to offer and if you decide to place an order you can use code LunaMoon to save 10% off any order. Please also stop by and visit their blog.

Alice Ann London Review & Giveaway!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Alice Ann London for the review & giveaway free of charge.****
When I host birthday parties or special occasions I like to try and spice things up with cute decorations, fun foods, etc. but until recently I never really thought about putting out photo props for the guests to use and have fun taking photos with. The reason why I recently thought about photo props was when I came upon a fabulous etsy shop and I received the opportunity to work with Tina the lovely and wonderful owner of Alice Ann London a London based etsy shop that offers paper goods, gifts and home decor. For my review I received a fourteen piece Superhero party photo booth props.





What is a photo booth prop? Generally photo booth props are fun masks, quote signs, etc that are made from either paper or card stock and attached to a stick which can be used to hold the prop in front of your face during a photo. The set I received from Tina comes with a mixture of full sized masks, along with a couple half face masks, a Boom action bubble, and super hero emblems each one is bold,bright and strudy. These props are very well made and some even have a little weight to them because the card stock is stacked on top of each other to give them the effects they have and makes it to were they don't just lay flat. I feel like these props will last significantly longer than other props I've seen and you can feel the love that was put into them as they were being made. Communication with the shop owner is great, she responds quickly and is always friendly. The props were mailed all the way from the UK but arrived in a timely manner and were in perfect condition, my kids love these props. Below are some of the other products Tina makes and sells;


Prize Alert:
One lucky winner is going to win their own fourteen piece Superhero party photo booth props set.

DrawsGood Gifts & Apparel Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by DrawsGood Gifts & Apparel for the review free of charge.****


One of the best ways to show off your love for your favorite video games, TV shows, movies, etc. is by wearing T-shirts that feature images and quotes from your favorites. A recently Etsy shop I came across called DrawsGood Gifts & Apparel who sells a variety of hand drawn Video game and TV inspired apparel items. One of the shirts that caught my interest the most was a Final Fantasy 7 Cloud inspired shirt which I will be reviewing below.





The shirt I received is printed onto a Fruit of the Loom HD cotton shirt, I received a Men's large. Typically I wear a size large shirt but the cut of this shirt was a little small in the chest area which for most isn't that big of a deal but I have a rather large chest and don't normally wear form fitting clothing. The material of the shirt is comfortable, soft and it is long enough that it will go slightly past your tail bone which is nice because when you bend over your crack won't be visible if your pants fall down a little. One big thing I noticed when this shirt arrived was that it didn't smell like anything, I've received printed tees in the past that have a harsh chemical smell.

When being washed this shirt needs to be turned inside out so that the print is on the inside. I absolutely love the design of the shirt, I think it is a pretty creative way to show case one of Final Fantasy's characters in a way that not everyone will know what your shirt is but those who are fans will be able to pick up on it right away. The design features clouds in the sky, the largest has a top shaped like the character Cloud's hair and it has a lightning bolt coming out that represents his buster sword and one of the other clouds has a Moogle sticking out. My fiance thinks the design is a little girly but that is fine by me because that means I get this shirt all to myself. All the shirts from DrawsGood Gifts & Apparel are $20 plus shipping and handling, head over and check out all the awesome designs they have to offer.

The Everyman Armory Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by The Everyman Armory for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

* Note; This seller doesn't currently have a shop logo so in place of where I normally put the store logo I will use an icon from the video game I will be talking about in this post.


One of my favorite things about cosplay is that you can cosplay no matter what age you are all that matters is that you love what you do and you have fun. While cosplaying is a lot of fun it can also be a lot of work to create outfits, accessories and weapons that look like what you are wanting to portray and not everyone has that kind of time to invest into a cosplay piece so that is where sellers like The Everyman Armory comes in because they make the gear for you to make cosplaying easier. The Everyman Armory mainly specializes in weaponry from various video games. The weapon I received to review is a piece from a game called Borderlands 2, I have included an image of how the weapon looks in game so you can see how close the replica is to the real (well virtual) thing.



 This specific Jakobs gun has a variety of different looks in the game but the most prominent feature of it is the bayonet which is also the key piece to this cosplay replica piece. As you can see Capt'n J the shop owner puts a lot of thought into each replica and I think he has managed to capture the essence of the in gun game beautifully, it has the same type of barrel and gun size and it has the bayonet as well. This gun is actually a modded and painted nerf bullet gun, and yes it does still work although the shooting speed may be lowered from an average nerf gun to to the fact this one has been altered. Looking over the piece I can't find any spots that were visible and unpainted, he even took the slide off and painted under it so when you pull it back it matches the rest of the gun. He also made small custom "Jakobs" labels to place on both sides of the gun which show the specific gun maker brand from the game.

 

I am actually pretty impressed with how Capt'n J carved out the underside of the gun to make the bayonet fit in snuggly, and the extra nice thing is the bayonet is removable so you don't have to lug it around as a large piece. The top part of the gun was also cut away to make room for the sight/scope addition piece. The gun is light weight and there is a lot of attention to detail he even included lining to make it appear as if it is in a video game and he took the gun apart to paint some of the inner pieces as well so everything flowed together. Looking for something specific? Send him a message I am sure he would be able to help work out something for you. He responds quickly and is always friendly and helpful when questions are asked, shipping was lightning fast and everything was packaged nicely to make sure everything was delivered in one piece, and he even included a Borderlands themed postcard of him dresses as Kreig and it even has postage on it so it is ready to be sent out.


Prize Alert:
One lucky cosplyer or video game art collector is going to win a Borderlands 2 Contraband Sky Rocket grenade mod valued at $50 and shown above.
