Pinky Paradise Color Contacts {Giveaway}

Ok, I’ve been wanting to try these out since I got contacts in junior high!  How incredible that you can even DO this!  Does Wizard of Oz come to mind, with the lyrics, “Can you even dye my eyes to match my dress?”  Totally.  558304_377706098926581_1729765139_n-2

Pinky Paradise is like the headquarters for circle lenses, colored contacts, beauty products, and accessories.   I’m most drawn to their colored contacts where you can literally change or enhance the color of your eyes, even if they are dark brown.  Don’t tell me that these pictures are intriguing!

1794824_718822694814918_591974353_nDon’t wear contacts?  You can order these without a prescription, so you’re just getting color without altering your vision in the least.  Still love the color you’ve got?  You can choose from dozens of options that lighten, darken, deepen, or enhance your current color.

green2I took at least over an hour trying to decide what color to get.  I wanted to try them all.  I decided that I wanted something that would be noticeably different, but still in a natural way.

I ordered the EOS Ice Green lenses.  Major success on the first day I wore them out when a friend asked, “Whoa, is that your natural eye color?!  It looks like you have Disney Princess eyes!”  I think the green over top my blue makes a beautiful teal.

So are you wondering if they’re comfortable?  I honestly don’t feel them at all!  Surely, they’re probably larger in diameter than my normal contacts, but I think that only gives them a better seal, and less of a chance that they’ll slipping around my eye balls.  Better hold.

IMG_0018

They are not drying or irritating in the least.  I basically put them in and forget completely about them.  I have noticed, however, that at the end of a long day, they do feel a little dry, so I try to not wear these on days that I know I’ll be out or up late.  Plus, get a cute little animal contact case with every order!

IMG_9896You guys, these are so affordable.  This pair of lenses I received were $22.90.  How much are you paying currently for your colorless contacts?  About that much?  These have a 1-year life span!!  I bet you’re paying a whoooole lot more yearly on your contacts already.  You’re saving $ AND looking fabulous with these.

Have I convinced you yet?!  Go check out Pinky Paradise and pick out your favorite new eye color!

Online Store / Facebook / Twitter

One lucky winner will get to choose a pair of lenses of their choice!!

Plus and cute little animal contact case!  There is no charge on the shipping fee and this is open worldwide!

Beautiful Skin Care {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Last week, my family and I traveled to Utah for the BYU vs. Georgia Tech game, since my husband is an alum of both schools (but we were totally rooting for BYU!). Utah is a very beautiful place, but there are many reasons I could never live there. The biggest two are 1) the snow (I am a Southern Californian at heart and anything below 60 degrees is freezing) and 2) the dryness. I dry up like a raisin here in California, and it’s five times worse in the northern climate, and I hate having dry skin! I was so grateful to have the Beautiful Skin Care set with me on my trip!
beautiful-logo

Beautiful Skin Care is made by Trusted Health Products, a company that makes a variety of health products from all-natural ingredients. A while back I reviewed OraMD, an all natural breath freshener, toothpaste and mouthwash in one, and I liked the feeling of using all natural ingredients to clean my mouth. Beautiful’s A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer are both made from natural botanical oils, and I liked the feeling of all natural ingredients on my face just as much! According to their website, “’Beautiful’ uses a rare combination of live fruit, nut and plant extracts to feed your skin cells and promote youthful, moist, beautiful glowing skin.”

beautiful-set-high-res

I was sent a bottle of Beautiful’s A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer to review. The bottles came with my name on them, which is kind of cheezy but a good daily reminder that I am beautiful! The thing I noticed when I used it for the first time was the smell–a delicious citrusy blend that was both refreshing in the morning and relaxing at night. It was strange to put straight oil on my face–the product is made from 100% pure and natural botanical oils, and that’s it!–but it felt good and surprisingly not too greasy. Here’s a photo of my face before and after applying the A.M. Moisturizer. You can see how in the “after” photo my face has a healthy glow :)

before after

Like the company warns, I did experience a slight break out for a few weeks after starting to use Beautiful, but I still have random break outs all the time, so it was hard to tell how much of that was really caused by the oil removing toxins from my skin or just my crazy, 28-year-old self still suffering from acne. After using the products for about a month I do feel that it has helped my skin to look and feel smoother and to have a healthy glow. I like that it is an all-in-one moisturizer, toner, firmer, protectant, repair cream and age-defying serum. Any product that has all those possibilities in it saves me time and money, which are two things that desperately need saving in my life lately!

bottle

Beautiful Skin Care can be purchased online and ships within two business days! A 0.5 ounce bottle of either moisturizer separately is $19.97, but when purchased together it’s only $34.94. The same discount applies to the 1 ounce bottles; separately they’re $29.97 but purchased together they’re only $49.94. But wait! Everyone who “Likes” their Facebook page saves $5 on their first order! And if your hubby feels left out and wants to have younger, healthier skin, never fear! A men’s line of this skin care system – You’re the Man – is available as well. And if for some reason you’re not satisfied with your purchase, every Trusted Health Products product is backed with a 1 year, 100% Guarantee.

THREE Winners will get to try a bottle of Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer for FREE!

Beauty Stop Online {Giveaway} – CLOSED

So I love doing my nails and having them painted up in the latest color trends, but I find that with a busy household and a hundred things to be done at all times, I practically NEVER have an hour in the middle of the day for my manicure to completely dry to the point where I feel comfortable tackling the dishes afterwards.  My nailpolish method, up to this point, (and I kid you not!) has been to paint a coat just before I lay down for bed and try to fall asleep with my hands placed across my chest so that they dry while I sleep, in hopes that by the time I first roll over, it will have been an hour and the nail job won’t be ruined!  I just don’t have that kind of time during waking hours!  Isn’t that ridiculous?

Beauty-Stop-Logo

But really, who does, these days?  We’re always in a huff to get places, get dinner on the table, get kids in the car, etc.  I tell you that this used to be my method, because now I have a new routine 10x more sane: inm Out The Door Top Coat from Beauty Stop Online.  This product brags a 45 second dry time (that’s less than a minute, sisters!) while creating a chip-resistant, glossy finish.  It can be used on polished nails, natural nails, or even artificial nails.  I’ve got 45 seconds, how about you?

IMG_6177

This bottle is HUGE!  It is basically the size of my fist!  Note: for extra protection, you can apply one extra coat the following day.  Now did you notice something missing?  There is no applicator brush in this bottle, so you can use it as a giant refill bottle, or just borrow the brush from an old top glaze bottle.  Worked for me.  The glaze was perfect, and it held up nicely.  Here were my nails after 5 days.  Still gorgeous and practically chip-free, even after daily household chores, hours of typing, and a few performances.

IMG_6327

Now if you read my review from a few weeks ago from Beauty Stop Online, you know I’m already a fan of their stuff.  Shopping through their different products is really like running through a candy store with a hundred dollar bill in your hand.  Another dreamy product that only further solidifies my already extremely positive opinion of Beauty Stop Online, is the Sherani Magnified Mascara.

IMG_6180

This mascara is great.  It is not clumpy or thick, but rather very thin and fine, but it separates the lashes well, stains them a nice deep black, and makes my eyes look very natural and certainly very ‘magnified’ just like it claims :).  This sucker is sold for $4.99 at BSO.  Totally a steal for these eyes.

IMG_6186

Surely, you know by now that Beauty Stop Online carries more than top coat and mascara.  You could really get everything you might ever need to doll yourself up in one online shopping cart.  They’ve got everything from shampoo, shower caps, tweezers, salon gowns, false eyelashes, and hair dryers to even men’s hair loss products.  Knock yourself out.

One lucky winner will receive $35 to spend at Beauty Stop Online!!

bronzer

While I’ve been using blush as one of my staple items since I started wearing make-up as a teenager, I’ve never taken the chance on a bronzer.  I was excited to receive the Madeleine Mono Duo-Colored Bronzer and have loved using it this summer!  I really love that there are two shades of bronzer that can be mixed and matched to create the perfect shade for your skin, which (in my case anyway) has been changing over the past few weeks to a darker tan as we spend more time outside.  There’s also a slight shimmer to the lighter side of this bronzer duo, which can be fun to play up for special occasions.

lipshine

For years, I didn’t use any lip color of any kind — I would never leave the house without a full face of make-up, but that Chapstick was my go-to “lipstick” of choice.  It sort of worked for a year or two when the light, nude-colored lipcolor was in style, but after trying different colors on my lips over the past few months, I can’t believe how unfinished I look without some sort of lip gloss or lip stick.  This Madeleine Mono Double Take Lipshine “softens, protects, and adds rich, luminous color” and I’ve liked having it in my purse to reapply throughout the day as mine inevitably wears off after eating or drinking water so much in the hot summer days.  The small mirror attached to this lipshine is extremely helpful for those on-the-go touch-ups.

eye

I was surprised to find this Madeleine Mono Viva Diva Eyeshadow Collection included in the package I received, as it seemed to be such a contrast to the light summer items I had received.  That being said, I’ve loved using new colors that I never would have chosen for myself and blending multiple colors to create the right hue.  I still basically stick to the neutral colors, but the bold purples and blues in this collection are fun to try and have for a night out.  I really love the darker colors that can create a smoky eye, and I like that these colors go on fairly light so that there’s plenty of room for experimenting and blending before it’s too set.

Madeleine Mono Cosmetics is offering a HOT deal right now — everything you see pictured above in the 7-Piece Beauty Kit for only $24.95!

Mommebox {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I love playdates at the park.  I love working part-time from my home.  I love staying up way too late finishing a great book.  I love working with the young men and young women from our church.  I love Blue’s Clues, Handy Manny, Dinosaur Train, Downton Abbey, and Gilmore Girls.  I love a mid-morning run to Chick-Fil-A with my little boys, lunch at Panera Bread with some close friends, and a classy date to Bistro 29 with my husband.  I love being a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend, an instructor, a reviewer/giveaway-er, and an avid reader.

I’m sure that many of you can relate to these feelings — straddling the many lines, spinning all the plates, and juggling all the balls that encompass womanhood.  It can be exciting and exhilarating and exhausting all at the same time; there are days that run together from monotony, while others fly by as you run from errand to errand.  This fun monthly surprise box from Mommébox, though, appeals to all women and the roles they play.

Main

Mommébox is a great new way to get inspired, learn about new products and take a break from all the demands of being a mom.

One box might be focused on ways to amplify your beauty, another box might be focused on the home or education products and/or taking care of your significant other. Every month brings a new surprise!”

I was excited to have a chance to review the December 2012 and January 2013 boxes from Mommébox– there are lots of fun products and coupons for new items.  Between the two boxes, I received natural laundry detergent Vaska, full size lip gloss and eyeliner from Kryolan, Kelapo Coconut Oil, and (my personal favorite!) Mr. Cleengreen’s Handy Essentials hand cleanser.

{Giveaway} Little Hatchlings ***ENDED***

I have so many things to be thankful for this time of the year!  Most of my gratefulness surrounds my loved ones.  1.)  My wonderful husband and little boy.  2.)  Living so close to family.  3.)  Having family that lives really far away coming into town over the weekend for a visit.  The list could go on and on.  But I also have something to be extremely grateful for come January.  We are FINALLY going to have our baby girl join us!  Everyone is so excited for her to join our family; especially Banjo.  He insists that we are naming her “Ruby”.  We are not.  However, I have decided that will be the perfect blog name for her:  Ruby.  So get ready to hear more about Ruby once she’s here.  :)  One thing that I’m excited about with having a baby girl is all the cuteness that’s out there for girls!  I missed out on all of that with Banjo.  I’m looking forward to all the cute outfits, cute shoes, and cute hair accessories…  Ahem.  Speaking of hair accessories I know where to get some ultra cute ones!  Plus, this place has cute hair accessories for baby girls, little girls, teenaged girls, and adult girls.  Yep that’s all in one stop!  The place is Little Hatchlings and here’s just a few of my favorites:

Banjo’s Hair Style

Banjo has an interesting toddler hair style.  Here are just a few of the looks that he has had:

Yep he’s got some curly and unruly hair!

 

We prefer to keep it on the long side, because…

 Well, he just looks totally different without his curls!!

But how to tame the crazy hair?

Recently Monkey Brains sent him some fantastic hair gel and hair refresher!

 

And it has really done the trick:

See?  Perfection!  :)

I’m sure that you are particular about your kids hair, too.  So be sure and check out all the great product at Monkey Brains!

{Giveaway} BARBAR ***ENDED***

Now you wouldn’t know it by looking at my bio pic, but my hair is naturally NOT straight.  In fact it takes a good hour just to get my hair to look that smooth.  I wouldn’t say that I have tight curls, because I don’t.  But what I do have is a mess!  :)  Just lots of random pieces that will curl better than others and loads of frizz.  So it’s not surprising that I tend to tie my hair back quite often.  When I do wear it down then I start by blow drying, rounding brushing (sometimes), and flat ironing.  I’ve been doing this for a good 10+ years, so I’ve come to be a flat iron hair snob.  It has to be just the right temperature.  Provide just the right amount of coverage in terms of plate size.  My new best friend?

BARBAR  recently sent me this BARBAR 1400 “BT” Black Tourmaline Flat Iron 1″It’s fabulous and seriously cuts hair straightening time in half!

BARBAR  also has other great tools for hair styling.  Like:

Brushes

 

Curling Irons

Blow Dryers

Even tools for cutting hair!

{DIY} Personal MicroDerm

Do it yourself home microdermabrasion kit?  Yes please!

I’m looking a little bit different these days.  That picture of me in the About section was taken in the fall.  We haven’t gotten any family pictures taken since then, so I’ll just have to give you this sneak peek for the time being (sorry about the taken from my iPhone look):  

There’s the new me…minus 40 something pounds!

Guess that I should delete the part about my having a few extra pounds, since that’s no longer the case!  However, I am still a 30 something year old.  So, something that I still struggle with?  Those oh so gorgeous fine lines and discoloration on my face.  Okay they are wrinkles and age spots.  Why even try to make them sound more glamorous than they actually are?  Yes I have them.  It’s a given now that I’m turning 33 in a few months.  (Gasp!  I actually just confirmed with you all my actual age!)  Let’s face it.  Our skin just changes as we age.  All of those years of sun exposure and laughing.  Yep I’ve got the laugh lines!  Just shows how happy I am.  :)  

Well, now I have the solution to those problem areas.  A few weeks ago I received the Personal MicroDerm and it’s perfectly fabulous!  Seriously such a dandy product.  Think microdermabrasion without the time and extra cost.  Who really has the time to go for appointments at the dermatologist’s office?  Not me.  How about the $$$ to spend on those expensive treatments at the dermatologist’s office?  Again not me!  That’s what makes the Personal MicroDerm so dandy!  It’s a value that will last and last with use from your very own home.  What’s more is it actually works!  After the very first treatment I noticed a difference in the way my skin looked and felt.  The treated areas became smoother, more refined, and youthful looking.  My forehead actually looked less line-y!  

The Personal MicroDerm comes with discs for different skin types.  The discs have a grit aluminum oxided coating to them.  Then the device itself has a vacuum that pulls the skin to the disc that spins.  Working the microdermabrasion miracle!  It removes a very thin surface of your skin to get rid of dead skin, etc.  And starts you on the way to smoother less wrinkled skin!  Also included is a very informative DVD on how to use the product.  I need to note that it’s very important to follow the directions!  Patience is not one of my virtues, but it is an important one to have when using the Personal MicroDerm.  I elected to go over an area (brown age spots people) on my face repeatedly instead of waiting until the next week for the next treatment.  Not a good idea.  Okay… it was a horrible idea that I will never repeat again.  The Personal MicroDerm is intended to be used only once a week, because your skin needs time to recover between treatments.  So I gave myself a true abrasion and that definitely smarts.  Totally my fault. 

If you are in the same aging category as me with fine lines, etc. then the Personal MicroDerm is for you!  Give it a try, because it will save you time and money.  And that’s just dandy!  :)
