Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics {Review}

I am SO impressed by this company and their values!!

Lush uses as little packaging as possible. When you order your products from them, you have the choice to "go naked," meaning your product will come with ZERO packaging. Did you know if you went "naked" all the time, you could save over 30 plastic bottles a year from entering our landfills!? If packing is unavoidable, they use recycled materials.

But that's not all... to read more details about their beliefs and campaigns they support, check out their website!

I got to try Lush's Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar.

Wiccy Magic Muscles is their spicy massage bar for aching muscles. The first time you use one of these, you’ll notice the sensation of peppermint and cinnamon spice oils which make the skin feel warm and tingly. The red pieces on the top are aduki beans, which work into the muscles like firm fingertips for a relaxing massage.

My husband hangs drywall for a living and is consistently lifting heavy sheets of sheet rock all day, so he frequently has back aches and pains. I gave him a massage with this bar and it really helped to relax his muscles! It seriously smells SO good too!! Mmmm!!

I also got to try the Twilight Bath Bomb.

Recreate the magic of a starry night in your bath water with clouds of lavender and tonka absolute to fight the demons of insomnia and soothe your stressed out body and mind. Their most relaxing Bath Bomb yet, Twilight is their gentle, reassuring hug for the bath to transform you from worn out to warm and fuzzy. It changes color like the sky at dusk, from pinks to purples and darker still. Lay back in the comforting herbal waters to soak your troubles far, far away.

I LOVE lavender, so anything lavender scented already has my vote! This bath bomb was seriously SO relaxing though! There's nothing like a long, hot, bubble bath at the end of the day to help you wind down before bed and get a good night's sleep!

I definitely recommend Lush's products and will be purchasing them in the future! I think they'd make a great gift for baby showers, bridal showers, etc! Every mom needs a little pampering, right?! :)

Wugadogs {Review!}

What in the world is a Wugadog, you ask?!

Wugadogs are a collection of plush toy dogs for children ages 3 and up. Darrin Wilson started Tall Trees Toyworks to make Wugadogs after an impromptu birthday gift caught on. They have four Wugadogs so far, a Boxer, Boston Terrier, Pug, and a Lab/Corgi/Chow mixed breed, each designed after a real pet dog from families all over the world. The families of the pets that they choose get their Wugadog free. A Bulldog, Pekingese, and Shih Tzu are to follow shortly.

We received Prudence the Pug to join our family! :)

My son is obsessed with dogs, so he quickly claimed Prudence as his own! The kids all enjoyed Prudence's little (well, big!) neck roll! LOL!

Hunter has kept Prudence close to his side since we got her! He even took her to my mom's house with him to stay last weekend, lol!

I love the idea of the Wugadogs and think our Morkie, Bob, would be a great addition to their line-up, don't ya think?! ;)

Wugadog is also running a KickStarter campaign right now and they're offering bonus rewards for people who back their project! How amazing are they?! If you can, I'd love it if you could support them!!

Tangled Tantrum {Review & Giveaway!}

A friend of mine was just educating me on Parabens the other week... I had never heard of them! Have you?! I felt so stupid and uneducated, ha! So let me save you from that and share! (From Tangled Tantrum's website!)

So when I got the chance to review Tangled Tantrum's Detangling & Conditioning Spray, I was really excited to find a product that wouldn't harm my children!

Do you see this mess?! LOL!

Aleah's hair is usually a hot mess!! She does NOT like to have it brushed either... it is a fight every morning and every night! Ugh!! Tangled Tantrum really helped though!! Aleah (who is 4) really liked the fun design of the bottle, so she was willing to let me put it on her hair without a fight! And oh my gosh, this stuff smells SO good!! Look how great it works too!!

One lucky reader can win their own bottle of Tangled Tantrum's Detangling & Conditioning Spray!

Sandgrens Clog Boots {Review!}

Sandgrens is the Swedish Clog company that focuses on providing the most beautiful traditional Swedish clogs, high-fashion clogs, comfort shoes and clog boots in the footwear industry.

They always craft their footwear using the finest leathers, wooden bases, and metal hardware available throughout the world.

Each line within their brand is created to the highest standards of fashion and comfort, embodying the concepts of luxury, creativity, sophistication and exclusivity. They are creating exceptional wood clogs that are custom-made, timeless and unique and they are absolutely committed to doing so in a socially and environmentally responsible way.

I got to try out Sandgrens Clog Boots in the Chukka style.

I love anything that comes in cute packaging, so I had to snap a photo of this cute ribbon and keychain combo!

The Chukka clog boot simply offers great clog design; functional, yet chic and fun. These cute booties can easily be paired with jeans or a skirt for a fashionable look!

These boot are SUPER cute and SO comfy! I pretty much live in flip-flops or slip-on clogs because I'm not a big fan of anything really covering my feet, but these don't feel bulky at all and get my approval!

I'm really not a fan of having my picture taken or sharing pictures of myself, so I am stepping WAY outside of my comfort zone here!!

I LOVED these boots and got SO many compliments on them! I'll definitely be wearing them frequently this Fall! I can't wait!

Surgery is Never Fun!!

Sorry I've been MIA, y'all! I had an endometrial ablation done a week ago. I didn't expect to be down & out for so long, so I didn't schedule any guest posts or anything while I was out, so I apologize! I'm doing MUCH better now though and getting back into the swing of things! My work schedule has been a little insane lately too so trying to keep up with everything is nearly driving me crazy!! haha!

Here's an updated pic of my kiddos - just 'cause they're cute! ;)
