Little Marvel Designs 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 Little Marvel Designs for the review & giveaway free of charge.****
I've always loved having plants in my house, but sadly even trying my best to keep them alive there wasn't enough sunlight in the apartment to keep them alive. Now that I live in a house with a large glass sliding door and big kitchen windows my plants have plenty of room to live and thrive but I don't really have the space for all of the plants I want so I've had to start thinking about unique ways to display my plants. A great Etsy shop called Little Marvel Designs was the answer to my search, store owner Heather sells a wide assortment of macrame plant hangers and wall decor. I should note my plant holder may look a little silly in the photo below, this is due to my own fault because I was overly excited about the pot holder I found while at the store and I didn't realize it was too big for the size macrame I have. For my review I receive a small Macrame hanging planter with a turquoise daisy decoration. 





This is made from hand-knotted jute color poly cord and wood beads, the small is made to fit a 4.5" pot and saucer as you can see from the photo above I was silly and bought a pot way too big, granted it fits but it sits unevenly so I will need to buy the proper sized pot. It is completely hand made and is tied and knotted completely by hand, Heather did a beautiful job and I like the color combinations she selected for the wooden beads. The materials used to create this are sturdy, the rope is strong and can hold a decent amount of weight plus it was knitted onto a heavy duty metal ring so it will fit onto any size hook, once it is hung up it isn't going anywhere so you know your plant is safe. The small macrame is only $15 which is a complete steal for a handmade plant holder that doubles as a decor piece, I can't wait for my guests to see mine! I was also sent a Mermaid art print which features a Mermaid floating in a crescent moon surrounded by seashells.





The original art piece was made using only colored pencils,all the colors are soft almost pastel in color. I love how she was able to create the crescent shape of the moon because when you see the print in person it has a bit of a 3d effect to it which really makes the print pop. There are a lot of fine details in this print from her seashell hair comb to the star fish and plants on the moon. This is a great print for any Mermaid or mystical creature lover the piece is calming to look at and adds a bit of magic to the room. The print arrived in a plastic sleeve set on top of a thick piece of cardboard to help prevent it from bending during shipping, both items were wrapped in pretty green tissue paper. Heather has been quite friendly and is more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the products sold in her shop. Stop by her shop to see the other fantastic goodies her shop has in store for you!

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

I enjoy bright and colorful eye shadow looks but I've never really used a lot of glitter shadows mainly because I didn't want to make a big mess in my bathroom but I recently decided to take the plunge and experiment with some glitter shadows. A wonderful cosmetics company called Orglamix agreed to send me a 5 pcs grab bag of their cosmetic glitters. Store owner Cheri is always a delight to speak with because she is sweet, speedy at responding and always likes to make sure her customers are happy. Orglamix isn't a new company to me, in fact I own quite a few of her regular loose pigment eye shadows and I love them so I was very excited to try out her glitters as well. Each jar of glitter comes with a little sifter inside (it arrives with a protective cover so you won't be getting a big glitter mess when you first open the jar) and a screw on top, each jar contains 2.5 grams of glitter, the jars are pretty sturdy I've accidentally dropped mine from off the counter before onto the floor and nothing was wrong with the container, I do want to note that from time to time the lid doesn't want to go on correctly so you'll have to try once or twice to get it on straight. Which five colors did I receive in my grab bag? I will be writing about them in the order that they appear on my hand below in a left to right order.





Red Red Wine -  I like the color of this glitter but the name throws me off a little, mainly because when I think of red wine I think of more a maroon color instead of a shimmery purple. It could also just be my eyes not wanting to pick up on the red though as the website lists it as being "deep red wine metallic glitter that flashes an array of purple grape sparkles". This was the first glitter I tested out and I  paired it with a light black and silver eyeshadow look and it was quite lovely.

Under Pressure - I love the name of this and the color! It is a bronzed golden color with slight hints of red. I think this would be perfect to pair with a Gryffindor inspired makeup look because it suits their house colors perfectly.

Lost In Love - This is listed as a "pink iridescent glitter that flashes an array of golden peach, emberglow orange and metallic red hot sparkles" on the website. It has a  soft angelic pink with shimmery tones, you can pick up on the peach and a bit of the red although you can't quite tell in the photo. This is a nice soft shade of glitter that would go well with several looks and will be nice for quick and simple every day looks which is perfect for work.

Sailing - My favorite color is blue so naturally this is my favorite of the five, but not only do I love it because it is blue but it also has bits of purple glitter which you can make out in the photo. This shade reminds me of Sulley from Monsters Inc. and I think it would be perfectly suited for a Mermaid inspired look.

One Night In Bangcock - This is listed as a "ultrafine chartreuse yellow green opaque glitter." it has a shimmery lime green color that reminds me of wasabi. I am not completely sure what kind of look I want to try this with yet, but it is a fun shade that I can't wait to play around with.



The set arrived in a cute little pink bag and there was a Tea bag included which I thought was a nice touch. You can use the glitter without a glitter glue but I highly suggest getting some before using this product so that it sticks and stays through out the day. If you hadn't noticed all of the shades are named after songs, and yes I did get quite a few of these songs stuck in my head during the duration of writing this review. When using this product I didn't notice a ton of fall out while applying the glitter, there was a little which is expected with any loose pigment but my face wasn't covered in glitter once I was done using this product. The glitter is fine enough that it is non irritating you can hardly even feel that it is there which is awesome because some glitters are too thick which makes it feel like it is grinding into your skin and it is just the opposite with this. Removal is easy as well, I didn't have any issues getting the glitter off, I was able to go about my normal cleansing routine. Orglanix also sells foundation, concealer, eye liner and more and best of all it is all Vegan, Cruelty Free, Natural & Organic made from all natural ingredients. 

Once I get a chance to experiment with these glitters some more I will post a picture or two on Instagram of how they look! 

Prize Alert:
One lucky makeup lover is going to win a grab bag that contains 5 cosmetic glitters!

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

When it comes to my pets I like making sure they are well taken care of, they are part of the family so why shouldn't they be treated the same as any other family member that you love? We are always picking up toys and treats for them, At food time they get dry food but we also mix in a bit of wet food with it to make it taste better. It is no surprise that I am naturally drawn to Chewy.com because they carry one of the largest selections of pet products all at great prices and I am sure you've seen their adorable commercials.
Every so often I receive the chance to work with Chewy to review some of the products they carry, this month I was sent Cesar Dry Dog Food + Variety Case of wet food and Fancy Feast Poultry & Beef  Feast Variety Classic Pate Canned Cat Food. As soon as I walked into the house with the package Sulley Monster knew what it was right away and was excited to test out the food. Our review of the three products we receive are as follows:


Cesar Dry Dog Food -  We received was a 2.7LB bag, the dog food smelled decent and the dogs really seemed to enjoy eating it, I like that they offer a few different flavors and that the bag can be resealed to keep the food fresh. This bag of dry dog food sells for $5.49 on their website or $5.22 if you have an Autoship with them.

Cesar Club Variety Cube Dog Food Trays - We received a 24 count of wet dog food, the portions may look a bit small but they are actually the perfect size for our two dogs since they get it along side a portion of dry food. Sulley Monster was quite happy to eat it right out of the container in order to snap a few photos as you can see above. The lids are easy to get off but with most wet dog foods the smell isn't too pleasant but it can easily be washed off if you get any of the gravy on your hands. The package contains four different flavors this way your dog won't get bored of the same flavor over and over again. This sells for $16.88 per case ($0.70 per can) or $16.04 ($0.66 per can) if you have an Autoship set up.

Classic Pate Canned Cat Food - We received a 24 count of wet cat food in three different flavors, each portion size is perfect for a daily meal for any cat. If you want to watch out for how much your cat is eating at once you can even give them half in the morning and the other half in the evening that way they are spacing their food out a bit and aren't feeling sick from eating to much or too quickly. The cans are easy to open and the smell isn't too bad. This sells for $12.74 on their website so $0.53 per can and you can get free one day shipping on any orders over $49.

Shipping is always speedy and everything is packaged well to keep it safe during it's travels, being able to order my pets food through Chewy is quick and convenient plus for those who are sometimes forgetful you can set it up to where it will automatically send you a new shipment on a certain date that way it can arrive even before you run out of food or treats.

Parragon Book Reivew! Book Buddies Program.

****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.****


I always love going out to my mail box and checking the mail because it is fun to see what shows up each day, one of my favorite things to find in the mail once a month is my Book Buddies box from Parragon who sends out a small assortment of books each month for my kids and I to review together. We are a couple of book worms so the kids love seeing what's in the box just as much as I do so we all open it together. The prices of the books vary from store to store, they can be found at Barnes and Nobles plus other locations check their website to see what store closest to you carries Parragon books.



This months theme was centered around activity books which is perfect for us because we are always out doing something so these books will come in handy for car rides, in fact the night we received this box the kids each brought a book with us when we went out for dinner that way they weren't bored while we waited for the food to arrive. What was in this months box?

Paw Patrol Marshall Saves The Day - In the box we received this month this is the only one that is an actual book and not an activity book. My son is a fan of Paw Patrol so he was pretty happy to see this book, it is a beautiful hardcover that has bright colorful pages that are eye catching and the book makes for a fun read. As a bonus this comes with a Marshall key chain, I do wish it was attached in another way though instead of being in the cover itself because it leaves a big hole behind after you remove the key chain.

Peppa Pig Little Piggy Puzzles - This activity book is packed full of Peppa Pig themed things to do such as helping collect groceries, coloring in costumes for George, mazes and more. This is another item that came with a bonus gift which is a small pink straw with a Peppa Pig plastic decoration attached. It has 48 pages and it is easy for a four year old to use which is a big plus especially since they are at the age when they are distracted easily.

The World of Eric Carle press out and play - I think this is my favorite out of what we received this time around, it has 32 pages that have thin cardboard pieces that you color then pop out and put together to create 3D figures. The pieces are very easy to put together and the instructions are easy to understand, my eight year old daughter had a blast with this set and I like that it kept her entertained for quite a while because you are able to play with the animals after you build them. This book included a set of Crayons.



Disney Princess springtime wonders - This book contains 44 pages which are split up, the first half of the book features a number of fill in the scene pages which are in full color and has spots where you can place stickers from the front of the book (50 are provided) which is a lot of fun for younger children. The part of this book is coloring and activity pages, all of which are in the traditional black and white. We counted eight actual activity pages where it asks you to do something, the rest are regular coloring pages. I like that they included an assortment of Princess photos to color in this so there is something for everyone. This comes with a bonus code for a free Disney digital storybook.

Disney Princess color & Activity Daffodils & Dances - 48 pages with 1 page of stickers, with 4 jumbo crayons. My daughters favorite part of this book was being able to design Cinderella's dress because she loves being creative, so we enjoyed the fact that it wasn't just a boring old coloring book with nothing else to do. It has a nice assortment of photos, some have a little less to color than others and some have more which we enjoy. This comes with a bonus code for a free Disney digital storybook.


Pixar Doodle Book - This is also one of my favorite items that came with this months box because of all the adorable stickers it has on the first two pages. It has an assortment of over 100 stickers and it comes with 200+ pages to color, complete and stick stickers on this is definitely a thick book and is the best one for extra long road trips. It has a large collection of the various Pixar characters from older characters like the Toy Story crew to newer characters such as Inside out and The Good Dinosaur.

Disney Princess 8x8 Activity Book Spring Sunshine - This is the smallest out of the set height wise but it still contains 32 pages of fun and is strictly a activity book there are no coloring pages included. The whole book is in full color and the pages look great. It includes two pages of stickers, one page is for "reward stickers" that you can put on each page your child completes and the second page is for what ever you would like them to be on. The back of this book has a pop out play scene that has Princess Belle and woodland creature friends for her to talk with plus this comes with a bonus code for a free Disney digital storybook.
