Brush Buddies 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 for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

When it comes to stocking stuffers I like to try and find useful and practical products to put in the stocking that are also fun because I don't think it should be just candy. One of the items that will be in my kids stocking this year will be new toothbrushes that light up & play music to make brushing fun.





Brush Buddies sells an assortment of fun dental hygiene products including tooth brushes, hand sanitizer, toothpaste and more. The products they sell range in price from $1.50 to $22.50 for a gift pack. I really like that they try to include new trends such as Kung Fu Panda and Shopkins into their products because it gets kids excited about brushing their teeth. Some of their toothbrushes light up and others sing, both will stay on for  the recommended amount of time for brushing your teeth.

The products I received are well made and they all work as they should when it comes to the sound and lights working, the brush part itself looks to be in good condition as well. The packaging is easy to get opened so you won't have to worry about having to cut the toothbrush out of it's pack. My kids love brushes like this so I know they will be very excited to find these in their stockings! The shipping from Brush Buddies was quick and my experience with their customer service was quite pleasant. They have a lot of fun products you should head over and check out.

PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner is going to receive this Shopkins prize pack!

November Parragon Book Buddies Program Reivew!

****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 PaRragon for the review & free of charge.****

My kids and I are all very excited because we were recently approved for the PaRragon Book Buddies program which is a blogger review program that sends a handful of books each month for us to check out and review. Not only does PaRragon sell an assortment of books but they also offer activity sets, and more all at affordable prices and they have a huge selection of books to select from.





The November box came with two holiday books and an assortment of Disney's Moana products. The two holiday books I received were The Nutcracker and The Snow Queen. Both books are beautifully done, the pictures are crisp and the colors are vibrant the imagery will really pull you in and make you want to look at every little detail on each page. It is well bound and seems like a pretty sturdy book, the cover sleeve is removable so you can decide whether you want to keep in on the book or not.





The Disney's Moana products I received are making me extra excited to go see the movie because of all the adorable characters pictured in these books. I received the following books and activity sets: Moana Born to Voyage, Moana Spirit of Adventure, Moana Ocean Explorers, Moana Choose Your Destiny, Moana Adventurer Activities & a Moana Happy Tin. The thing I love most about all of these books is almost all of them come with something extra for the kids whether it is stickers, temp tattoo's or pencil toppers there is something neat included inside each book. Each book not only comes with either stickers or other goods but it also comes with a free digital book download and activities you can fill in. I am very pleased with this selection of books and it gave my kids added excitement towards going to see Moana in theaters. This book selection is great for kids from ages 3+ my son loves all the stickers and the giant activity pad. This book set will make the perfect gift this holiday season for any Disney lover on your holiday shopping list.

Townleygirl 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 Townleygirl for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

Thanksgiving is now officially over which means that if you haven't started thinking about what you are going to buy for Christmas gifts you'd better get a move on it! If you have a little girl on your shopping list this holiday season you should head over and check out what Townleygirl has to offer, they sell a wide range of Disney & Dreamworks licensed goods featuring some of your favorite characters. I recently received a box from them to review and I am very excited not only to share the review with you but I also get to give the same products away for a giveaway! What did I receive in my box? I was sent the following products;



Finding Dory Snow Globe Hair Brush retail value $3.99. I want to note that in the pictures this brush appears to have water on the inside to make the glitter float, there is no water in it the glitter is just freely inside so it moves around as if it were in water. This brush doesn't pull your hair a lot because the bristles are spaced out evenly enough no hair gets caught and pulled, the brush is also a nice size so it is easy to hold. We love this brush and give it a 5 out of 5 stars. This would make a great stocking stuffer!



 


Tsum Tsum 5 pack lip gloss set retail value $6.99. I can't get enough of all the adorable Tsum Tsum charters, I think they are all adorable as can be and I have to admit when speaking about things that would make great Christmas gifts I requested to review this one because I wanted the lip balms. Each lip balm has a different flavor, to me they all smell a little the same so smell wise I can't tell a big difference. Flavor wise there is a hint of each flavor in them but it isn't dominant. This formula is thick and spreads will the little drop you can see on my finger above is enough to cover your entire mouth and it doesn't feel greasy or nasty instead it leaves your lips feeling moisturized. After your lip balm is gone you are able to remove the cute little Tsum Tsum and add him to your key chain if you please. This product is great and gets a 5 out of 5 stars.



Tsum Tsum 4 pack hair bows retail price $4.99. My daughter loves wearing hair bows in her hair when she has it up in a pony tail so I knew this set would be a big hit in our house. The hair bows are comfortable to wear and do not pull hair, they also stay in place and are cute to boot you couldn't ask for anything more. They are also well made, I looked them over and didn't see anything out of place or miss glued, this was another 5 out of 5 star product.



Elena 4 pack nail polish with tin retail value $6.99 & Trolls 5 pack lip balm set with tin retal value $6.99. Trolls has been becoming quite popular so this is a great gift to put into a stocking or gift bag, the lip balms Townleygirl sells work well, smell great and don't have any kind of funky taste to them lip some lip balms do and the tin has a cute little tuft of hair attached to it which gives it extra charm. The nail polish is a bit thicker than normal adult nail polish this is to help it peel off easier when your daughter is ready to remove the color she is wearing. The tin that goes with the polish is like a mini metal lunch box that and it closed securely so your daughter can carry her polish around and not worry about everything falling out.

PRIZE ALERT:
Two lucky winners are each going to receive the same package I received!

Chewy.com Reivew!

****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 Chewy.com for the review free of charge.****



When it comes to my pets I am one of those people who treat my pets like they are one of my kids, all of my pets are spoiled and loved.I am always willing to test out fun new products with my pets, especially with my newest cat Hook (the little orange cat) who is 11 months old and is either teething or was a dog in a past life because he chews on everything. Chewy.com sells a wide selection of pet products for all of your furry, feathery and scaly needs, I was recently given a list of products to select from to do a review on and I selected the Temptations Tubs Cat Treats w/ Snacky Mouse, and
Purina FortiFlore.





Right away both of my cats were curious to see what I was doing in the kitchen as soon as the heard the jingle of the cat treats in the tub. As you can see Hook was trying to help himself to some treats but could not quite fit his paw into the hole to get a treat out. The cat treats are very aromatic which is sure to get your cats attention, the tub is has a lid that seals shut when not in use to help keep the treats fresh when not being devoured. The Snacky Mouse actually came with a small bag of treats inside of the box as well, which I thought was nice. The head of the mouse twists off which allows your to add treats to the inside of the mouse, after filling it simply place it on the floor and as your cat knocks it around treats will slowly fall out of it one by one or if you have a toddler it will get shaken and treats will end up all over but that is half the fun isn't it? The Purina FortiFlore I wanted to test out because my mom's dog has a very sensitive stomach and always has digestive issues and I've heard lots of good things about probiotics for both humans and pets so I thought I would give it a shot. So far it has seemed to help he seems less agitated after meal time and doesn't seem to be having any issues with getting sick. I am very happy with both of these products and thank Chewy for carrying both these items plus hundreds more!

Lugz 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 for the review & giveaway free of charge.****
A good looking pair of reliable shoes can be one of the most important things you own, they help protect your feet during travel and many people notice shoes when meeting someone for the first time especially during job interviews. Lugz carries a large assortment of shoes and boots that fit both the reliable/sturdy aspect and goes above expectations in the looks department.



The last time I worked with Lugz I reviewed a pair of their Women’s Zrocs, this time I was offered a selection of boots to select from. After looking at the different boots I was able to select from I finally decided on the Men's Empire HI XC in Black/ Smokey and let me tell you it wasn't easy trying to decide which pair to review. I requested these boots in my husbands size because boots are pretty much the only type of footwear he will wear and these look just right for him.



This boot is fleece lined high-top boot and comes with a Flexastride molded memory foam insole, I was curious to see how it felt and how much room it took up inside of the boot itself so I slipped my foot into one before my fiance tried them on and they are pretty comfy! They also have a Mark II tested slip resistant rubber sole which is perfect for working outside in stormy conditions, going hiking and more. My fiance wore these all day Sunday while we were out of town enjoying our escape the room adventure and he was very comfortable in them the whole day. The first time he tried them on he thought they were just a tad bit too big because there seemed to be extra room near his toes but once he got up and started walking around the realized they were just right and the little bit of room was nice near is toe area. If anything gets spilled on them or mud slashed up on them they are easy to clean and will look brand new again once they are wiped off. I think these boots look very professional and are a good year round boot.

PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner is going to win their choice of any Men's or Women's Empire boots.

Paficica Beauty 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
Pacifica Beauty for the review free of charge.****

Pacifica beauty is becoming my favorite beauty brand more and more every time I test out the products they send me because the products are high quality, have wonderful color pigmentation and the packaging is some of the best I've seen. I was recently sent a trio of their new polishes to test out, right from the moment I opened the package I knew these colors were going to look lovely when applied to my nails.



As you can see it originally arrived as a trio however tragedy struck and while I was taking photos of the bottles one of them fell and broke upon hitting the floor. I was so sad because it was one of the three bottles I was most looking forward to using but there is no use crying over spilled milk. The two remaining polishes were Wonderland and London Tomboy as seen above. Each of the polishes shown here are available on the Pacifica beauty website for $9 along with a number of other eye catching shades and high quality makeup. Pacifica Beauty is 100% Vegan and Cruelty free!

 

In the bottle London Tomboy looks like a deep green with hints of blue but when applied to the nails reminds me of a forest green, it is quite dark but reminds me of the holidays. The Winter wonderland looks like an off white but when you look at in on the brush seems to have glitter in it, when applied to my nails and looked at closely I did not notice any glitter. The Wonderland to me in person seemed to give off a light pink hue it wasn't quite white but also not quite beige. London Tomboy is a perfect match for a bold gold and it looks good with or without a clear top coat. In the photos of my nails shown above I have on a single layer of London Tomboy which spread on smoothly and evenly without any issue and two coats of the Wonderland because the first coat looked slightly sheer and I wanted it to be more solid. I've been wearing this polish for five days now and it actually hasn't chipped too much it has only chipped around the very tips of my nails which I personally think is pretty good.
