Lemons & Limes Kids Swimwear: Swimsuit GIVEAWAY

This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to the lucky winner - rebecca williams #47!

It's summertime and you bet you can find my kids in the pool.  Every year my daughter gets to pick out her swimsuit.  She normally picks a one-piece style with an animal on it or a bright color.  When I showed her the swimsuits from Lemons & Limes, she immediately chose this style as her favorite.

This two piece halter set is from their Blue Sky Collection.  It's cute in the photo, but even cuter in person.  I was really happy with the blue color.  It's a gorgeous shade.  The little ribbon found weaved through the top and gathered on the sides of the bottom is pink satin that is braided.  I love halter tops so this style was a favorite of mine, too. 

It's very well made and lined in pink.  My daughter says it's comfortable and I love that she's not showing so much skin.

One lucky winner will win their very own swimsuit from Lemons & Limes!  Their inventory changes daily so you'll be informed about what styles are available in the size you request.

MANDATORY ENTRY:  Visit Lemons & Limes here and tell me one style you love.

Rimmel London: Great cosmetics that won't break the bank

I recently had the opportunity to try Rimmel cosmetics for the first time.  I was extremely happy with them all and cannot wait to share them with you.

The first is their Moisture Renew Lipgloss SPF 15.  This provides a nice glossy pout without that sticky feeling or heavy smell.  What a bonus that it has SPF 15!  Now I don't have to apply SPF lip balm first before applying my gloss.  It's all-in-one.  I received the shade 105 Pink Benefit.  It's the color you see on Solange Knowles in the photo above.  It's just the right amount of light pink shimmer. 

This gloss is full of moisture-boosting collagen, hyaluronic acid and vitamins A, C and E.  This groundbreaking formula reduces dryness by 95% while shielding lips from the sun's harmful UV rays.  Available in 14 gorgeous shades.


The next product is their Moisture Renew Lip Colour SPF 18.  Gotta love the SPF 18 added in!   I have the shade 120 Coral Shimmer and it's a fantastic shade for the summer.  The perfect mix of pink with a hint of orange.  It's creamy and very moisturizing. 

This lipstick reduces lip dryness by up to 65% for smoother lips.  Features hylaronic acid, collagen and vitamins A, C, and E.  Available in 24 beautiful shades.

The last but not least product is their Lasting Finish Pro Nail Enamel.  I have the color 200 Bare Naked and I LOVE it!  I've been on the hunt for a neutral nail color.  This one is perfect for me.  It's now my favorite nail polish shade.  It looks great whether I use one or two coats. 

The polish glides on smoothly and evenly.  The brush is nice and wide and aids in easy application.  It features over 800 fine textured bristles.  You can see and feel the difference.  A wider brush means less strokes to apply giving you a flawless finish.  It also dried in no time.  I even applied it and then started typing immediately after. 

This polish is enriched with micro-sized minerals that fill imperfections on the nail surface.  Enjoy your super glossy, smooth finish for up to 10 days!  Each polish features their advanced micro formula technology with an active time-release system which enhances shine over time. 

I will definitely be purchasing more shades of this great nail enamel!  It's wonderful!

Find Rimmel cosmetics at your chain drug stores and mass retailers nationwide.

Fortunoff: Fine Jewelry for Women, Men & Children

Here is a jewelry company that not only offers breathtaking fine jewelry for you, they also offer gorgeous jewelry for men and children.  Fortunoff truly impressed me with the pieces they sent my way to review.  I was blown away by their quality and style.

The sterling silver High Polished Basket Weave Cuff is beautiful with its lovely lattice woven patten.  I have a very petite wrist, but this does not overpower.  It measures 1.15 inches wide.  I think it makes a statement without looking tacky and cheap.  It's elegant and classy.  Despite its larger size, its quite delicate looking.

Do you have a music lover in your life?  Have I got the bracelet for you!  The sterling silver Musical Theme Charm Bracelet features a variety of dangling musical notes and instruments.  This fun lobster clasp bracelet measures 7.5 inches.

What a sweet necklace!  The Enamel Angel on Pink Ribbon Necklace is precious.  The delicate sheer ribbon is a nice change from the traditional chain.  The colorful enamel sterling silver puffed dimensional charm measures about three quarters of an inch long.  The ribbon measures 14 inches with an extender to 15 inches.  I bet you know a sweet angelic little girl who would love to wear this.

The sterling silver Yellow Ducky Bracelet is so quackin' cute!  My daughter loves wearing it.  The vibrant yellow enamel duckies dangle with joy.  The bracelet measures 6.5 inches in length.  My daughter is 7 and it fits her perfectly.  Features a lobster claw clasp.


The sterling silver Animal and Star Bracelet is the cat's meow!  My animal-lover daughter thinks this bracelet is the best.  There are adorable colorful enamel animal and sterling silver charms.  Measures 6.5 inches in length and features a lobster claw clasp.

If you're looking to purchase some high-quality jewelry for yourself or as a gift, you must visit Fortunoff to see their lovely selection.

affresh: Dishwasher & Disposal Cleaner

Gotta stinky dishwasher and disposal?  No worries...here's the product for you - affresh.

I never thought I needed to clean my dishwasher.  I figured it was getting clean every single time I used it.  However, when I put in a load of dishes from a fettucini alfredo dinner, my dishwasher has never smelled the same.  Ewww...now it needed to be cleaned and I needed to find a product to do it fast.

Thanks goodness for affresh!  This cleaning product scours, penetrates and purges odors all at the same time.  Bye, bye mineral reside.  Hello fresh smelling washer!

This is the first product of its kind to simulaneously clean the dishwasher and disposal together.  Activated by water, the oxygenated bubbles circulate and remove odor from the surfaces they develop on - like the hoses and pumps.  The little solid tablets go to work and also clean the stuck-on particles from the grinding mechanism in your disposal.

The first step - make sure your dishwasher is clear of dishes.  Place one tablet in the main detergent tray and another at the bottom of the dishwasher.  Next, run your dishwasher on its heaviest cycle with hot water.  Place the tablets in the garbage disposal as well.

affresh truly makes a difference.  It's so easy to use and leaves your dishwasher clean and fresh.  I opened mine for the first time after using affresh and I could not only smell the difference, I could see the difference.  Try it today!

Click here to find out where to purchase.

“I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of affresh and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

SANS Natural Diet Soda: Six Pack of your choice GIVEAWAY - 10 Winners!

This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to the 10 lucky winners:  tanya904 #5, Felicia #35, BethElderton #10, itsme #58, Kimberly #40, Jackie #82, polly #77, Linda Kish #47, Chris #41, shana #18


So what is SANS?

SANS Soda is the next evolution in the emerging diet soft drink segment. It has the delightful enjoyment that consumers expect from soft drinks but without (or “sans”) the negatives commonly associated with these beverages. SANS Soda contains zero calories, zero artificial sweeteners, zero artificial colors or flavors, zero GMO’s, and unlike current stevia sodas on the market, zero erythritol.

Sounds great, right?  Well it is.

I do drink diet soda.  I don't want the extra calories in my beverages, but I have heard that artificial sweeteners are bad for you.  I have limited my consumption quite a bit, but I just have to have my soda at times.  I'm happy to share with you that SANS does not use any artificial sweeteners such as saccharin, aspartame, or sucralose. 

Pretty cool, huh?

Sounds great and all, but you ask...how does it taste?  Not bad, not bad at all.  There are some flavors that we prefer over others, but overall Eric and I were happily impressed.  Just the fact that there were no artificial flavors made me happy.

My personal favorite was the black cherry.  I could drink that daily.  Eric pretty much liked them all, but there was one flavor that didn't work for us both and that was the lemon lime.  But who's to say it won't work for you?!?

Click here to find out where to purchase SANS.

Ten lucky readers will win a six pack in the flavor of your choice and a SANS koozie!

MANDATORY ENTRY:  Visit SANS here and tell me the flavor you would choose.

Kettle Cuisine: Delicious Soups

The Three Bean Chili was a fav.  I loved this tasty vegetarian version.  The flavor was incredible and it was very satisfying and filling. 

Eric really enjoyed the Thai Curry Chicken Soup.  He's into Asian flavors and loves anything with curry in it.  This hit the spot with him and he commented on how good it tasted.

King Arthur Flour: $20 Gift Card GIVEAWAY

This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to the lucky winner - Kath U #12!

Attention all bakers!  King Arthur Flour is a company that offers a large variety of baking essentials.  I received two wonderful products to review from this very friendly company. 

The first is their beautiful Natural Batter Bowl.  I love this so, so, so much!  I make a lot of pancakes here at home and this has really come in handy.  It's a nice size and the spout and handle are wonderful features.  It is also microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe.  Love that.
  • Perfect for stirring together pie filling.
  • The right choice for muffin, cake, or pancakes; spout lets you pour batter into the pan accurately, without drips.
  • All-natural fired clay with a color-free glaze reduces environmental impact of manufacturing by 50%.
  • A great heirloom gift for those pursuing a sustainable lifestyle.
  • 2 quart.
The Extra Wide Silicone Brush is a great tool to have also.  Perfect for pastries.
  • Heatproof (up to 500°F) brush features a triple row of stippled silicone “bristles,” designed to hold more liquid as you brush.
  • Perfect for larger surfaces: focaccia, country loaves, piecrust, etc.
  • 3”-wide brush includes an integral hook, for hanging on bowl or saucepan.
  • Generously sized handle allows you to get a good grip, no matter how slippery/sticky your hands are.
  • Microwave and dishwasher-safe.
One lucky reader will win a $20 Virtual Gift Card from King Arthur Flour!
