Gallery Direct: $200 item of your choice GIVEAWAY

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

Let Gallery Direct bring your art to life!

I received a gorgeous framed portrait of my children.  It was well packaged, arrived in a timely manner, and looks wonderful.

The ordering process was very easy.  I uploaded my photo directly to their website.  I was able to choose from a nice variety of options such as canvas print, framed paper print, aluminum print or birchwood print.

I chose the framed paper print.  There were many frame styles to choose from.  I chose their Matte and Metallic Black with Silver Lip framing option, and it turned out beautifully.  I am very impressed with the professional quality from Gallery Direct.

There is a ton of art work to choose from.  Whether you're looking for a specific artist, color scheme, photography (color/black and white) or just want to upload your own photo, you won't be disappointed with the options offered from Gallery Direct.

Mama Mio: Fit skin for life

Now that I'm 34, I really understand the importance of taking great care of my skin.  I've always worn SPF on my face, but I'm always making sure I'm using top notch products for glowing, healthy looking skin.

I had the opportunity to try two amazing skincare products from Mama Mio.  I am impressed with both of them and can't wait to share them with you.


My skin tends to get very dry and tight.  This comes and goes, and it's important for me to find a moisturizer that will keep my skin feeling soft and moisturized.  

The Mighty Moisturizer is a lightweight all-in-one formula.  With just one pump, I can moisturize my entire face.  A little goes a long way.  This moisturizer takes the place of night creams, serums and primers.  

You will receive a Mighty Moisture Day & Night Moisturizer and The Mighty Moisture Little Book of Confidence containing 60 seconds of Face Fitness.


The Eye Know All-In-One Serum is a multipurpose do-it-all solution for your eyes.  This depuffs, fights off wrinkles, diminishes dark shadows, brightens and provides 24 hour moisture.  Again, a little goes a long way.  Just one pump of this product covers both of my eyes.

Included in the box is the serum and The Eye Know Little Book of Confidence containing 60 seconds of Face Fitness.

These products have been featured in Elle, Glamour, and Vogue for a reason!

Head on over to Mama Mio to check out all of their wonderful skincare products.

Thymes: Home Fragrance

Thymes is such an elegant company that offers a wide assortment of bath & body products as well as home fragrances.


I received their beautiful Bitter Orange & Cedar Potpourri.  This woody scent blends all-natural amra, orange hibiscus and orange pods, tangerine orange bellani and exotic handmade flowers.  This a great scent to have in my home with this cool weather.  It makes me want to grab a cup of hot cocoa, a comfy blanket and curl up with a good book.  I've had this out for a while now, and it still smells fresh.


I also have the Bitter Orange & Cedar Fragrance Mist.  This is a wonderful addition to the coordinating potpourri.  This eco-friendly, low VOC mist fills the air with sweet herbs and rare spices.  This is a wonderful natural alternative to conventional room spray.

Visit Thymes to check out their other home fragrance scents.

Mally Beauty: Get the look you've always wanted


Mally Beauty, where have you been all my life?!?  Your products are ah-mazing!  Mally Rincal is the makeup artist to the stars, and she sure knows her stuff.  Clients like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Hayden Panettiere, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, and Ashlee Simpson have trusted her with their gorgeous faces.

I was sent the 24/7 Professional Eye Lining System.  Ladies, this eyeliner stays put.  It's not going anywhere, and that's what I love.  No smudges!  Finally, eyeliner that stays fresh and looks just as good in the evening as it did first thing in the morning.

After applying the eyeliner on your eyelids, you will then take the double-sided applicator to set with the corresponding shadow and translucent white powder.  These two powders activate the liner and sets it for a truly long wearing power.  You'll get professional results that you'll be so pleased with.  This three-step system is the bomb, y'all!


Get this in Neat Navy, Crisp Black, Best Brown, Plum, Smoldering Topaz, Black Gold, and Green.  What a great assortment of colors for any look.  This 3 piece set comes in a nice metallic light green pouch/case.  

Check out Mally in action demonstrating how this wonderful eyelining system works!  She's so hilarious and is so passionate about her company.  Love her!


When the day is done, and you're ready to take off your eye makeup, be sure to use Mally's Dual Action Makeup Remover.  This works with Mally's High Performance products.  This formula features a Bi-Phase liquid which has an oil phase that quickly dissolves oil based products and a water phase that uses gentle action cleansers to float makeup off the skin, eyes, and lips.  Just shake the bottle to combine the two, apply to your skin, and your makeup will come off with ease.  

I have been using this on my eyes nightly, and it glides on smoothly and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.


If you want your skin to look its absolute best, I highly recommend the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender.  This product is phenomenal and adds the perfect finishing touch to your makeup routine.  I've never felt anything like it.  It's like silk.  It's a clear, featherweight product that diffuses the look of pores and fine lines.  It keeps my makeup looking fresh all day long, and my face looks smooth and perfectly matte without the ashy, cakey look of old school powder.  Forget looking older than you really are!  Powder can do that to you!

This comes with a soft luxurious buffed edge Japanese sponge.  The perfect companion to this remarkable product.

You don't rub this on your face.  Just pat it on your skin where you would normally use powder.  Your skin will thank you, and you'll leave the house looking fresh faced and ready to conquer the world!

You must watch Mally's video showing you how this product works.  It's no wonder this product is an award winner!

I want to try every single one of Mally's products.  If they're anything like the three I received (which I'm pretty dang sure they are), then I'll be one happy customer!

You can check out all of Mally's helpful and informative Product Demos here.  Head on over to Mally Beauty today!

ivivva: Dancewear & activewear for girls

ivivva offers the most wonderful dancewear and activewear for girls.  I was fortunate enough to receive some fabulous products for my daughter.  When I opened up the package and felt the clothes for the first time, I just knew they were high in quality.  My daughter loves each and every one of her new activewear pieces and can't wait to wear them this summer.  They are comfortable and cute.


All of the tank tops from ivivva are darling.  We received the En Pointe Tank and absolutely adore it.  Just look at the back detail.  The cross back straps are a really great feature.  This top is made out of luon light fabric. It's breathable, has 4-way stretch and coverage, and allows you to move with ease.  There is also hem elastic to keep the top down as you move.  


Available in sizes 4 through 14.  Colors offered:  Black, Cupcake Pink and Purple


My daughter loves her Free Skate Skirt in Grape.  She can move, jump and split with no worries while the built-in liner keeps her covered.  The gripper elastic prevents the liner from riding up.  This skirt features a handy front hidden waistband pocket.  The luon light fabric is breathable with 4-way stretch and coverage.

Available in sizes 4 though 14.  Colors offered:  Grape and Peacock


I love the Get Down Crop II.  I wish they made these in my size.  My daughter thinks these pants rock.  The colorful waistband is fun, and the fit and feel of these pants is terrific.  These crops are reversible.  If you want an all black pant, just flip and go.  My daughter likes the wide, smooth waistband that doesn't dig into her skin.  There is a hidden waistband pocket in the back for money, keys, etc.  These pants look great with the two tops we received.


The Rock the Sport Short Sleeve Tech top is so soft!  The circle mesh fabric is lightweight and has an anti-stink finish.  The fit on my 7 1/2 year old daughter is fitted, but not too tight.  You can easily layer this over a sport top or tank top.  The top features a media pocket with cord exit.  The seams lay flat so there are no scratchy, uncomfortable areas that will lead to irritation.

Available in sizes 4 through 14.  Colors offered:  Black and Power Purple





ivivva has also launched their Shake It Up dance line!  This new line of active wear is designed for young people inspired by the hit Disney Channel series Shake It Up!

Check out the video.  The collection is crazy cute!

Dale & Thomas Popcorn: Oh so delicious!


If I had only one thing to snack on for the rest of my life, please let it be Dale & Thomas Popcorn!  This stuff will make your taste buds do a happy dance.  

I was sent a wonderful variety of their delicious popcorn.  Individually packed bags came packaged in a box.  The flavors I received were:
  • Dark Fudge with Praline Almonds
  • Chocolate Chunk N'Caramel
  • Peanut Butter & White Chocolate DrizzleCorn
  • Twice-As-Nice Chocolate DrizzleCorn
  • Cinnamon Creme DrizzleCorn
  • Black & White Biscotti


I can't even tell you which one was my favorite because they were all equally as amazing.  The Black & White Biscotti really did taste like fresh biscotti.  The Praline Almonds in the Dark Fudge variety were a nice crunchy touch.  The Peanut Butter & White Chocolate flavor was loved by my kiddos.  The Cinnamon Creme tasted like heaven.

We could have finished this entire box in a day.  Seriously.  We had to do some serious portion control when it came to this popcorn!

If you're a fan of popcorn and want to turn it up a notch, I highly recommend Dale & Thomas Popcorn.  There are other flavors to choose from such as Southwest Cheddar Chipotle, Hall of Fame Kettle Corn, Summertime BBQ and so many more!

These would make great business gifts and birthday gifts.  Any gift from Dale & Thomas Popcorn is a winner.

Chobani Yogurt: Case of Assorted Flavors GIVEAWAY

This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to the lucky winner - Jenny #60!


It's official.  I have a new love in my life, and it happens to be yogurt.  Not just any ol' yogurt.  I'm talking about all natural, delicious greek yogurt.  His name?  Chobani of course.

This stuff is delicious.  I ate this for breakfast, as a quick snack, and I even ate it for dinner a couple of times.  It's that good.  Almost addicting if you ask me.

I was sent a wonderful variety of Chobani Non-Fat Yogurt to try.  No fat?  Really?  They taste like heaven.  I'm so glad I had the opportunity to try such delightful greek yogurt.

I really did love all of the flavors.  I sprinkled some cinnamon in the vanilla variety, and used the plain variety as a replacement for mayo in my tuna salad.  It worked and was so much healthier!

This creamy yogurt is strained to create its magical creamy texture that is packed with protein.  A few of my absolute favorites include the Black Cherry, Blueberry and Strawberry.  With flavors like Pomegranate, Blood Orange, and Apple Cinnamon, you'll have a hard time deciding which is your absolute fav.  My daughter loved the Lemon.  Heck, I really did enjoy them all.  Who am I kidding.




If you're already a fan of Chobani, I don't blame you.  If you haven't hopped on the Cho bandwagon yet, what the heck are you waiting for?  Hop on!  

GIVEAWAY TIME:  One lucky reader will win a case of assorted flavors from Chobani!

The Coconut Chocolate Chip tastes terrific with its toasted coconut and yummy chocolate chips.  This is made with organic oats and soybeans, and satisfies our sweet tooth.  


Lovin' the Mojo Bars.  Wowzers...these really knocked our socks off.  These sweet and salty trail mix bars are our new fav.


With flavors like Dipped S'Mores, Chocolate Almond Coconut and White Chocolate Macadamia, how can you go wrong?  Eating healthy never tasted so good!


My husband loved all three.  Don't get me wrong, I liked them all, but my favorite was the Dipped S'Mores.  These are full of nuts, pretzel pieces and other tasty morsels.  We're diggin' the crunchy chewiness.   It's the perfect on-the-go snack.   With 70% organic ingredients, they're good for you and the planet.

When my husband went for a nice trail ride, he took one of these with him.  They were a tasty, healthy treat that kept his energy level strong.  I enjoyed eating these after a long, hard workout at the gym.  Oh so satisfying!
