Valentine’s Day Pillow Giveaway

Do you have a sweetie who has everything? I have the perfect gift for this Valentine’s Day brought to you by


I love how you can put your images on anything imaginable. I designed this 18×18″ pillow with photos of my boyfriend and I. This literally only took 5 minutes to do. The hardest part was choosing which photos I wanted and how I wanted to arrange them. The pillow came exteremly fast and is perfect. It’s softer than I thought it would be.


The only drawback I could find would be how I put my letters to close to the top. If they had a diagram it would have been easier, but it’s not a huge issue to me. The photos are of great quality considering all of these were taken from cell phones.

There are two pillow sizes to choose from 16″x16″ and 18″x18″. You can add up to 30 images for the smaller pillow and up to 40 for the larger pillow. Each pillow features a removable machine-washable cover, sharp-durable print, and the back half of the pillow is white. They have tons of backgrounds you can choose from. If it wasn’t Valentine’s day I would have put pictures of my dogs on the pillow since they are always stealing my pillows.

You can upload photos straight from Facebook, email, or text them to a number just for your project and it is extremely fast. Your photos will be there in less than one minute.

Are you ready to win your own collaged pillow too? is offering one up for one of my readers! Just enter below! Limited to continental United States. Star

Christmas is coming!


Christmas is less than a week away! I’m extremely excited, I’ve set up the tree, bought some gifts, and I’m totally in the holiday spirit! I’ve always wanted personalized wrapping paper so I’m extremely happy that has sent me some to review.


I was able to design it myself and it was extremely easy! I was able to have as many as 200 photos, but I chose to keep it simple and just use 3 different pictures which show off my family. Having a new baby this year was a wonderful time to showcase our two boys and daughter as well as our two dogs. The wrapping paper was of quality paper and having the 6ft one was enough to wrap several presents.


They were also kind enough to send me this double sided ornament which is extremely pretty and reflective. It is 3×2 inches and is absolutely gorgeous and made of high quality material. It is not flimsy! It even came with a super cute red tie to hang it from our tree.

The last item I received was an 11×14 inch aluminum picture. I also could have added more photos, but I’ve been wanting a picture of just my family for a while. I love how great the photo turned out. It looks identical to the picture I sent them. I love how I was even able to choose a border.

I would highly recommend purchasing from as their items always look great and ship fast! They have graciously allowed me to host a giveaway. I will have 3 winners from the US and each winner will receive one of the items posted above.

Key To My Heart Creations Review and Giveaway

When it comes to my girls, I love giving them the best of the best. Of course sometimes the “best” is way too expensive for us average folks to afford. To me some of the best items I have owned or given happen to be ones that were hand-made with love. Some of us can find these items from family members or even close friends. But what do you do if you can’t convince anyone to make the items you need and still get that loving home-made feel that you want? You can visit Key To My Heart Creations!

My youngest daughter is currently going through testing to see if she is Autistic and also to see if she is having seizures. Because it is not 100% confirmed I have not said much about it to you guys. The main reason I am saying something now is because it is hard to find clothing and costumes that not only fit her personality, but that also are comfortable enough for her to wear for longer than two minutes. We received Key To My Heart Creation’s BatGirl Tutu costume for our little one and I am very excited to share with you our thoughts.


We wanted to wait for her to be ready to wear the costume before we shoved it on her. That and I wanted the hubby to be here so he can help and of course see her in it! The other night she spotted the costume and tried pulling it down from it’s somewhat hiding spot and I figured that she must be ready to wear it. She normally is not very good about us changing her clothes, but I was very surprised when she was laughing and giggling while I put this costume on her! She was so excited about having the costume on that she started dancing and twirling around the house for hours!

Key To My Heart Creations

She ended up wearing this costume for 2 days before she finally let us take it off. I have never seen her so attached to any clothing and I love that it was this costume. This costume survived a day with our Babbi Monster, so I know it will last a long time and will be a perfect outfit for our princess to feel strong and extra special no matter what the occasion is!

I highly suggest Key To my Heart Creations to anyone looking for great Tutus, Tutu Costumes, Candles, or even Sock Monkeys! They have some really awesome unique products and each one is hand-made, so you know it will be perfect! You can find Key To My Heart Creations on their website here, or on their Facebook page here.

NeoCell Review and Giveaway!

I always find it hard to keep my hair, skin and nails healthy. Which is why I was so glad to be able to post a NeoCell Review! What is NeoCell? NeoCell is the #1 Collagen brand in the world and a leader in the field of nutritional science. They offer many different products to keep you happy and healthy.

I received their Keratin Hair Volumizer and their Collagen Beauty Builder to review. I have really thin nails and really dry hair so I was excited to see if their products really worked!

NeoCell Review

First I will talk about the Keratin Hair Volumizer. I LOVE Keratin products and they have never let me down, so I knew I had to have this product! They are medium sized white capsules and you take two, twice daily. Our hair and nails are made of Keratin and collagen so the two main ingredients help strengthen what you already have.

NeoCell Review - Keratin Hair Volumizer7

I currently use a Keratin treatment on my hair as well as wash my hair with a Keratin based shampoo and my hair has never been so smooth and this product has made my hair even stronger and has significantly reduced the amount of hair loss I have been experiencing. For the last couple of years I have been loosing hair constantly. Even my husband has been getting upset because he finds my hair everywhere. So anything I can do to help stop my hair from falling out benefits pretty much everyone in my house (specifically my vacuum).

While I may be able to baby my nails and get them to be a little longer and stronger, they never seem to stay long. Also, my skin is not what it used to be after having the girls, so I thought that the Collagen Beauty Builder would work wonders for me!

NeoCell Review - Collagen Beauty Builder

These remind me of the size of Calcium pills. You take 3 pills, twice daily to get radiant, smooth and hydrated skin and strong nails. I have never taken collagen anything before so this was a new experience for me. I have however heard very good things about collagen and how it works wonders for skin and nails so I couldn’t wait to see how it worked for me.

After taking these products for about a week I noticed less hair fallout, along with hair that was stronger and extremely shiny. I generally have a lot of blemishes because of so many problems with my skin and I have noticed that my blemishes have been healing faster than normal and that my skin has just overall been softer and healthier. I also noticed that my nails have been stronger and almost seem to have a shiny coat over them.

I would definitely recommend these two products to anyone looking for beautiful hair, skin, and nails that like me, can’t seem to get them by themselves. NeoCell also offers other great products that you can find on their website here.

Newman’s Own Organics Pet Review and Giveaway

It has been a while since we have shared some great pet products with you, so today we have a Newman’s Own Organics Pet Review and giveaway! Not only was I excited about this review and so were our two pets! I got a sampler pack for both my kitty and my puppy!

First up is the cat sampler. It had some dry cat food, and of course some wet food. Apparently it smells really good because my cat immediately started chewing on the box! The funny part was that he only chewed on the box with the cat food in it which got me pretty excited about feeding it to him!


The first thing that we gave him was the wet food. We know that he is obsessed with wet food, he will start jumping on you every time you open a can. He gets to the point that he will jump into the trash can to retrieve the top of the can if we don’t put the rest down for him quick enough. He absolutely loved his new food! He kept begging for it which is not normal for him! Not only that but this food did not have the same odor as a lot of other wet cat food. I am not saying it didn’t smell, but it also didn’t make the whole house smell like kitty dinner. It was definitely a nice change.

He also loved the dry food! Of course he did not like it as much as the wet food, but it’s not like other companies where he would get upset if we didn’t give him the wet stuff. With other brands we would have to wean him off of the wet food for him to even consider eating the dry food. It was a nice change to be able to give him either on and for him to be happy.

Of course the dog got spoiled! She got two different kinds of treats, dry dog food and wet food. Sadly my daughter realized what the Snack sticks were and realized how happy they made the dog so by the second night they were completely gone! She had woken up in the middle of the night, grabbed the bag, ripped it open and fed the whole bag to the dog. I was very impressed with the Snack Sticks though! They looked like beef jerky and smelled pretty good too.

Newman's Own Organics Pet Review- Dog Sampler

We also got Peanut Butter Dog Treats. At first I thought “Peanut Butter?!” but then I thought about the fact that dogs love the taste of peanut butter, it just ends badly once they start eating it. I loved that they were in the shape of hearts, which made my girls love giving them to our dog! She really loved them and has been being extra good to get more!

Of course they also sent us some dry dog food and some wet food. We do not normally give her wet food, but she was super excited about this special treat! We mixed it with the dry food and she was in heaven. I love that all of these products are organic and contain everything my pets need! Not only do I love it, but they love it to!

The only thing that I didn’t like was that they don’t have any kitty treats (although the kitty did steal some from the dog). Hopefully they will have some in the future! I love giving my kitty treats, I just wish he would do tricks for them like the dog does.

I highly recommend these products to anyone that wants to look out for their pets like they do themselves, or even if they just want their pets to be extremely happy with their food! You can find them on their website here, or locate a store near you here.

SteriShoe Review and Giveaway

As some of you may know, my husband is a boot salesman. Not only does he sell them, but he is obsessed with them. He knows just about everything there is to know about boots and the companies that he sells for, but it’s more than just the knowledge. He also owns about 15 pairs of boots (does not include sandals)! He is very obsessed with keeping his shoes as clean and neat as possible, they even have their own shelf! When I was told I had the chance to host a SteriShoe Review and giveaway I was very excited!

SteriShoe Review So what is SteriShoe? SteriShoe is a product that sterilizes the insides of your shoes using Germicidal Ultraviolet Light (UVC). It kills 99.9% of organisms that cause Foot Odor, Athletes Foot, and Toe Nail Fungus! It is accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Association, is safe and easy to use, and is completely chemical and drug free! When I told my husband this, he told me that it couldn’t be true and he just did not understand how it could possibly work. I explained to him that UV Light has a lot of benefits and while it may not seem possible we might as well try it and see how it goes.

SteriShoe Review

We received the SteriShoe extremely fast and while my husband was still a little hesitant, I couldn’t wait to try it! I ripped it out of the box, read the directions/information booklet, and went on a search to find the stinkiest shoes I can find! Since my husband has so many shoes none of them were as smelly as my brother-in-law’s shoes! I immediately put the SteriShoe to work!

The SteriShoe process itself takes about 45 minutes, but setting it up took about 2 minutes so it was a fair trade. After the 45 minutes I took the shoes out of the bag and sniffed them. They were so smelly before that they still had a slight smell so I decided that I would turn in on for another run while I was at work. I get a call a couple hours later from my husband saying that he took the shoes out and can’t smell anything. He kept asking if the shoes were smelly when I put them in the bag or if I did something funny to them, so I told him to try it out himself.

SteriShoe Review

When I came home he had already used the SteriShoe on multiple pairs of shoes and kept freaking out because he could not believe that it was working on all his different shoes. He was hooked. He decided to take it to work to talk to some of his co-workers to see if they had ever heard of such a thing. His boss said that he had seen similar products at trade shows, but had never seen one with such a great design and one that actually worked. They are even thinking about adding the SteriShoe to their inventory!

SteriShoe is not only great for the average shoe-wearer, but is great for those with diabetes. Diabetes often causes poor blood circulation which can lead to loss of sensation. Pain tells our bodies that something is wrong, but when we cannot feel pain, an untreated blister or a sore can develop into a foot ulcer. When left untreated, a diabetic foot ulcer can result in an amputation, and there are approximately 86,000 diabetic related amputations annually. So keeping your shoes clean is a must and this is an easy way to do it!

You can find SteriShoe on their website here.

Pampers Kandoo Wipes Review and Giveaway

Potty training can be hard! Too much change in a little amount of time can sometimes make your child not want to do something that you want them to. For my daughter, one thing she loves and does not want to get rid of for the potty is wipes. Which is why I am very excited to review Pampers Kandoo Wipes for you!


So why are Kandoo wipes better than toilet paper? Kandoo wipes are easy to use, are the size of about 2 pieces of toilet paper making it perfect for little hands, are moistened with lotion, and are flushable which is great! Another thing that I find great about this product is that my daughter knows that they are just for her when she goes potty, it makes her feel special that she gets her own wipes for the bathroom that no one else gets to use. Also, every so often she will unravel a whole roll of toilet paper, with Kandoo wipes she only pulls out one at a time so there is not as much waste which makes mommy happy!

Kandoo wipes come in two different styles: Sensitive (unscented) and Melon.They are both available in Soft Packs, Tubs and Refill packs. We received the Soft Pack but I have used the tub before and it is basically a mini version of diaper wipe containers, which is great!


We also received a bottle of Kandoo Shampoo! The shampoo comes in the cutest little frog bottle! My daughter knew immediately that it was for her and wanted to take a bath ASAP! I opened the bottle so see if it smelled good (I am obsessed with scents) and to my surprise it smelled amazing. The scent is in between what I would expect from a child’s shampoo and what I would expect from my own shampoo. So it makes us both happy!

I was very surprised at how well it cleaned my girls hair! They both tend to get a lot of sticky stuff and who knows what else in their hair and Kandoo got it all out! It was a nice change considering I have to wash their hair several times with other brands to get the gunk out.

Kandoo offers a lot of different products like Bubble Bath, Hand Sanitizer and so much more! They carry just about everything you need for your little ones and they have great prices too! Be sure to check them out here, or find a retailer near you!

Boogie Wipes Review and Giveaway!

When allergy or cold season come around I always feel so bad for my little ones! Not only are their poor little noses already irritated by the cold but their constant runny nose makes it worse! After wiping and wiping their noses get worse and will start to crack and bleed from all the wiping. It is absolutely horrible! This last allergy season it got so bad that we decided to try other options, one of which was Boogie Wipes.


Boogie Wipes are saline wipes with added vitamin E and Aloe to help break away boogers and sooth your child’s nose. They also come in scents like: Fresh, Grape, Menthol, Uncented, and Boogieberry. I received Grape and Fresh Scent to review. I think my favorite of the two is the Fresh Scent and my girls love Grape! The Grape is a little too overwhelming for me, but they love it and that’s all that matters.

Before trying out Boogie Wipes I thought that they would be horrible. I didn’t understand why you would need an extra thing of wipes just for your kids noses. What I didn’t know was how bad my girls noses could actually get! I always thought that the redness came from the boogers themselves and not the tissues or wipes that they were using. After reviewing this product I noticed my girls noses were no longer cracking but were actually staying clean and non irritated! As a mom of two toddlers this was a huge relief for me and their little noses! The package isn’t huge either so it’s easy to carry with you and doesn’t take up much room in the diaper bag.


My daughter LOVES these wipes and they are the main reason she wipes her nose herself. She knows that they are wipes just for her boogers and asks for them by name. We make sure that there is always a package around no matter what time of year it is! They are inexpensive and work better than any other product I have tried!

Boogie Wipes also come in different sizes like a 90 count canister, 45 count packs (the pictures above), a 30 pack, 10 pack, and they even have a teachers kit! Right now if you buy Boogie Wipes and go to their website here you can get a $3 rebate for the movie Epic. Be sure to give them a try to save your kiddos noses!
