Duke Cannon Review and Giveaway **Closed**

It’s not often that we can say we love both a product and the company it comes from. Sure we like the company, but most of the time its the product that keeps us coming back. For this next company, both the company and the product will keep me coming back for a very long time.
Why do I love Duke Cannon Supply Co. so much? Duke Cannon offers men the chance to have soap that is meant just for them, because why would a man need soap like a woman? When I first went to their website I stayed there for at least an hour just looking at all the different funny sayings, and all the information they had. One thing that really stood out to me was that Duke Cannon Soap is modeled after the same soap used by Gls during the Korean war. It is shaped like a brick, is 3x the size of regular soap, and has steel cut grains so that you won’t be dropping the soap any time soon.
Another thing that really caught my eye, and made me want it that much more was that this soap is made in the same plant that was the leading supplier of soap for the military for over 20 years. So if your man is in the military, or even just a man that likes manly things this would be a great thing to buy for them. Sure men don’t normally brag about what kid of soap they are using, but if they did this would be the soap to brag about.

I’m sure you are wondering if this soap lives up to its claims of curing “Mangina”? Okay, stop laughing because this soap is in no way girly, and it smells like a man in a box. I loved the scent so much that my husband caught me just sitting there sniffing it a couple times. Sure Axe smells good, but it does not smell this good, and as much as we both love it, we both love our bars of soap more. So I would say that this definitely will help cure any fear of having “Mangina.”

While this soap is surprisingly big, it is very light weight. While I’m sure some of you would love to lift weights in the bathroom, the last thing any of us want is for you to drop a bar of soap that literally weighs the same as a brick onto your foot. If you think this soap is too small, you can always cut it down to size, or even just wait for it to shrink.
Want another great reason to buy Duke Cannon soap? Duke Cannon donates a portion of their sales to military charities like Honor Flight. Still not good enough? They also have a rewards program for those of you that need extra soap! You can save your UPCS to get some cool manly things, like a 1985 Topps Baseball Card,some screws, or if you save enough you can even get a Weber Grill.
If you want to be entertained, or if you want to buy some awesome man soap you should check out Duke Cannon’s website here.

ChicWrap Review and Giveaway

I absolutely hate fumbling around with your average plastic wrap. It gets stuck to itself, yet it won’t stick to what you want it to. I have worked at a deli where we had the commercial grade plastic wrap that worked wonders. I never understood why all plastic wrap wasn’t like that. I would buy the commercial grade plastic wrap for my house, but who wants that big of a roll just lying around. Especially when your like me and don’t use it very often. At least not often enough to justify having that much just sitting there. I am so glad that I found ChicWrap.

ChicWrap is a plastic wrap dispenser that not only looks great on your counter top, but also holds professional plastic wrap in a convenient size. I received ChicWrap’s California plastic wrap dispenser. Its so cute, and I often forget what its for.

The dispenser has little rubber feet on the bottom so that you can easily cover what your need to without the box sliding all over the counter. The plastic wrap itself is really great. It sticks perfectly to the container instead of sticking to itself, plus with the easy cutter that’s attached you don’t have to fight to cut a piece off.
My husband normally is not a big fan of my review items unless they are for him specifically. I don’t think I will ever forget the night he found our new kitchen accessory. He came running out of the kitchen asking where we had gotten it, and then told me that I needed to give it a great review as it is the best plastic wrap he has ever used.
I love my new ChicWrap! This is something that I think would not only make a great decoration for your kitchen, but is something that could also make a great gift for your friends and family. They have many different designs, so you can get one to match your kitchen or even just get one to match your mood.
You can find ChicWrap on their website here.

Pink Princess Dress Review

I love dressing up my little girls in dresses and anything else girly I can find. Well I found a whole website dedicated to giving you everything you need to make your little girl look like a princess. Pink Princess not only has beautiful dresses for your little girl, but they also carry matching accessories like gloves, shoes, bags, and even hair accessories.
I received a white flower girl dress, with a solid bodice with a ribboned taffeta skirt. As soon as I took it out of the package I knew it would be perfect for my little princess, and I could not wait to put it on her. In fact, I put her in the dress as fast as I could.

As you can tell, my little princess was very happy to be in this dress. She was smiling the entire time she was in it. I loved that the sash on the dress is not only removable, but it also matches the design on the dress. The dress is made out of very high quality fabric that does not look like it will stain or rip very easily, which is very important when putting such a pretty dress on a 2 year old. I love the way the dress looks on my little girl! It fits her perfectly, and I’m not afraid of her playing in it and getting hurt, or ruining the dress. I think it would be a great dress for a flower girl, or even just to play dress up in.
PinkPrincess.com has a lot of adorable inexpensive dresses and accessories for your little princess. They carry items for every occasion, and even have some items for your little boy so he can dress up too. You can find this and everything else Pink Princess has to offer on their website here.

Kitsch Hair Ties Review

I love having at least one hair tie with me at all times. My hair is very long, and tends to get in the way of just about everything. One thing I hate about the traditional hair tie is that there’s never really a good place to put it where it can be found instantly, and not be in the way, or without being uncomfortable. When I was younger, and smaller, I used to put my black hair ties around my wrists. Now if I try to put one on my wrist not only does it look tacky, but it cuts off the circulation to my hands, and is just plain uncomfortable. So I went on a search to find a great hair tie that not only looks cute, but can be comfortably placed on your wrist so you don’t have to search through your purse to find it.

Here’s what I found:

It may be hard to believe, but these are hair ties. These hair ties are made with love by Kitsch. When I said made with love here is what I mean: Each hair tie is 100% hand made so you know they are great. They have specially treated edges so that they will not get worn out, and dyed and treated so that the color will not get all over you, your hair, or your clothing.

I love all the different colors and designs they have. They have a color to match every outfit, and every personality. You could wear one, or you can stack and layer as many as you want to create your own design. I was worried that they might be uncomfortable, or would stretch out quickly. While they did stretch a little, they could still be used and still held my hair great. They did not hold my hair too tight, and they felt just like a regular bracelet on my wrist. I was worried about the sparkly hair ties getting glitter everywhere or being scratchy on my wrists, but they were surprisingly soft and no glitter has come of my hair ties.

Looking for something a little different? Kitsch has Some really cool hair ties in their “I am…” line. Each one says something different to help inspire you throughout your day. My favorite is the “I am Beautiful” hair tie, every time I see it I smile. Other ones say I am Love, Peace, Happiness, and Grateful. These would be great for gifts, party favors, or just to make you feel great.

There are many ways to wear your Kitsch hair ties. Not only can you wear them on your wrist, but you can wear them on you ankle too. You can find hair tips, Kitsch tips, and even some cool ways to wear your Kitsch on their Kitsch Tips page.

You can find these and other great hair ties, and head bands on Kitsch’s website.

Spanx Blue Nile Bra-llelujah Swim Dress Review

I know that I am not the only one that will spend hours trying on swimsuits only to wind up leaving a store with nothing. Last time I went to the mall to find a swimsuit I left empty handed after trying on at least 50 swimsuits and deciding against over 100. While they would normally be my size, they would make things that aren’t my best features look even worse. After having 2 kids anything that makes these features worse is just not something I even want to think about, let alone wear. Sure I could spend a good $400 on a swimsuit that fits, but I would be settling for a design I do not like and doesn’t make me feel any better about myself.
That’s when I found Spanx. Spanx has a lot of different products that will help you look great, and make you feel great too. I received their Blue Nile Bra-llelujah Swim Dress to review for you. I was a little worried about ordering a swimsuit online, not only because of size issues, but because of how different products are then in their pictures. When I received my Swim Dress I couldn’t have been happier. It was beautiful! Sure it looks pretty in the picture, but the picture just does not do it justice! Normally swimsuits are too thick, whether it is in the padding, or even just the swimsuit itself. This swimsuit is perfect. It’s very hard for me to find a bathing suit that fits my stomach, my butt, and my chest. I wear a 36 DDD/F in most bras, while I am a 38DD in others. So finding a swimsuit that can keep everything contained is a little difficult, at least not without it being too big somewhere else.

I absolutely love this swimsuit and all the sizing options they come in. I was able to choose a 16 D/DD which was pretty exciting to be because normally you can’t choose both a bra size and an actually swimsuit size. I guess that is why they call it a “Bra-llelujah” swim dress. Another reason I think they call it this is because it has a bra attached to it. Yes, an actual bra, under-wire and all. Best part was that it fit! It took me a minute to get the suit over my hips, but once that part was over it went on easily and immediately made my body look a little more slim. I felt like I had lost 10 lbs just by putting on a swimsuit.
This swimsuit also has tie strings on each side. Why you ask? You can wear this swimsuit as a medium length dress (about mid thigh), or you can wear it high up like in the picture below. I love that I don’t have to change out of my swimsuit just to feel comfortable. I can just pull it down a little and I feel like I am wearing a normal summer dress.
It is extremely comfortable, in fact it is the most comfortable swimsuit I have ever put on. I love that this swimsuit makes me feel and look great, which is so hard to find! It helps make everything that needs help on my body look so much better. This is my new favorite swimsuit, as well as my new favorite dress. If you are looking for a new swimsuit I would definitely try looking at Spanx Swimsuits. They have so many different styles and designs that will not only fit your style, but will fit your body. Not sure which one would be a great fit for you? Check out this page for the different problem areas Spanx swimsuits have solutions for here.
You can find this and many other Spanx products on their website here.

Slice Cutter Review

I get a lot of boxes and packages, especially lately. However, with two little girls having a box cutter around is just not an option. I’m constantly worried about opening boxes around them, or even owning a box cutter because I don’t want to chance them getting to one and getting hurt. My husband will laugh at me because I will use my house key to cut open boxes. It works, but not very well. To make my fear of my children using a box cutter worse my 2 year old started opening my boxes with my keys for me.
I received a Safety Cutter made by Slice as part of a review.
Can you say that your child can play with your box cutter and have no chance of hurting themselves? I now can because of my Safety Cutter. It has a small ceramic blade that is sharp enough to cut through paper, or tape, but won’t cut skin. So I don’t have to worry about my daughters hurting themselves on my box cutter anymore. Not only that but the ceramic blade does not rust, and lasts longer then your traditional steel blade.
This Safety Cutter has some really awesome features other then the ceramic blade too. My Slice Safety Cutter lives on my key ring, but it also has a built in magnet. So you can also keep yours on your fridge, or anything else you have that a magnet could stick to. It also has a rubberized non-slip finish so you don’t have to worry about it slipping out of your hands and cutting something you don’t want cut.
I am so glad I received this cutter. It makes things so much easier, and definitely helps me feel better that I don’t have to worry about my kids getting a hold of it.
You can find this and other great Slice products on their website here.

Auric Blends Review

I love wearing perfume, but I hate that none of them last very long. One thing I have been hearing a lot about is perfume oils. They can smell the same as your favorite perfume but its easier to put on, and it lasts a lot longer then traditional perfume.
Auric Blends has a lot of different perfumes to choose from from their perfume oils.
I received 3 of their top selling perfume oils: Love, Egyptian Goddess, and Aphrodesia.
I really liked the Perfume Oils. Not only did the scent last a very long time, but they smelled amazing! Even though they are oil, they did not leave my skin oily, and they didn’t leave a funny smell either.
I also received two of their Solid Perfumes: Starr Jasmine, and White Gardenia.
I love my new Solid Perfumes! It’s my new favorite way to wear perfume. It comes in a really cool container that you could use again later, and is definitely something that everyone wants to know about.
I love incense too, so of course I got three of their top selling incense as well. I received Opium, Golden Honeysuckle, and Night Queen.
The incense is great, they are strong but not overwhelming like some are, and they have really great scents. They also burn longer then a lot of your average incense.
Between all the products I was able to review, I was very happy with the products. They were of great quality, and Auric Blends definitely knows how to mix their scents. The only thing I would want changed is for the solid perfumes to have a little bit of a deeper container. That way when my perfume was gone I could use it for jewelry or something bigger, I really loved the design and would love to be able to use it for more things.

You can find these and other great products on their website here.

After Midnight Review

Since I have had my 2 girls, wearing heels and going out is generally not an option. For well over 2 years I have not worn any heels or really even gone out to just have some fun.
I was invited to go to my husband’s aunt’s bachelorette party. I could not wait to go, but I knew that I definitely could wait for the aching in my feet from uncomfortable shoes. Luckily I found a product that would help relieve this aching pain so that I could continue on with my night, and not have to worry about my feet preventing me from having fun.
I put my bottle of After Midnight in my purse so that I had it with me to apply throughout the night. After going to the first club we went to, my feet were already hurting! I was able to take out my After Midnight and spray it onto my feet. I have never been so relieved! Literally within minutes my feet felt great, and I was able to go to the next club without the pain from the last one.
Not only did my feet feel great all night, but when I woke up the next morning my feet didn’t hurt nearly as bad as they should have. All I had to do was spray some more on me feet and they were pain free the rest of the day.
You can use After Midnight on more places than just your feet. I spray it on my husbands shoulders to help relieve his pain, I also have him spray it on my back when I need pain relief. I love how easy it is to use, all you have to do is spray it on and wait for it to kick in! I like to massage it in to make sure that it soaks in, but its not something you have to do.
After Midnight is my new must have thing to keep in my purse, and it will stay there until I’ve used it all. I think that every woman should have this product in their purse.I will definitely be purchasing more in the future!
You can find After Midnight on their website here.
