Mommy needs to chill out…Time for WojoCalm! PLUS A GIVEAWAY!!!!!

I’m a bit of a high-strung person. I realize this, and am willing to admit it, which is probably the first step in learning to calm the heck down. 😀 I’ve tried a lot of different things, but then Wojo came into my life. At first, I was skeptical, but then I got it. The package is really, really well-design and well-made. I knew immediately that Wojo cares about their products, because they put so much into the packaging alone. wojo_calm_back2

Francois et Mimi Multi-Compartment Bento Box – Product Review

Get ready for another review of a product from one of my favorite houseware companies, Francois et Mimi! I’ve got a ton of their stuff in my kitchen, from their awesome soup mugs that my girls and I absolutely adore eating out of, to my fancy french press that gives me the best-tasting coffee ever! It’s no wonder that I was excited to try out this lunch box!

bentobox3I have a confession to make: I love lunch boxes! I don’t like to eat my lunch at school because I live so close to home, and go there to eat, study in quiet, and let the dog out to potty. I love lunch boxes because they allow me to take healthy snacks to class, in stead of resorting to crackers or candy bars. I would much rather snack on some fresh fruits and veggies! 😀

This little lunch box is awesome! It’s microwaveable, dishwasher safe, and freezer safe (except for the lids. grr.) The top section is awesome…the lid has extra space for the included spoon, knife, and fork! An awesome elastic band holds the set together, and it fits into this awesome insulated bag that matches the entire set. I’m in love, and my classmates couldn’t help but have snack envy when I pulled out my veggies, ranch dip, and a few other snacks! I love this! You will too…check it out here:Francois et Mimi Multi-Compartment Stackable Bento Lunch Box (Dark Blue)bentobox2

As Always, Stay Beautiful & Think Divergently!

Coosh Rapid MFI Certified Car Charger – Product Review

I have been living with one long USB cable for the longest time. I take it everywhere I go! The problem is, when I forget it…I’m completely out of luck! I’m so stoked that one of my favorite tech companies, Coosh, let my try their newest car charger! 😀 I’ve tried so many of their products, from a bluetooth speaker to a fancy digital bathroom scale, and I love every singe one!

cooshcharger2This charger is wonderful! It has two extra usb ports, in addition to the mini usb plug that has an apple lightning adapter Attached right to it! At first, I thought the adapter was just another piece for me to lose, but this adapter piece slides out when not in use, completely out of the way! Now, no matter who’s in my car, there’s a pretty darn good chance I’ll be able to charge their phone…plus two other devices of your choice!

I love the blue light that tells me that it’s plugged in and ready to go, and the spiraled cord is up, out of the way, instead of hanging out the door when I get out of my car! Yay!

I love this cord, and recommend it to everyone, especially if you’re ready to upgrade from your old, junky charger! Want you buy yours? Keep an eye on it on amazon:Coosh Mfi-Certified Rapid Dual-USB Port Car Charger with Built-in Lightning Cable and Micro-USB Adapter

My Best Bubble Tips–PLUS Bubble Therapy Pure & Natural Bubble Bath, 3 in 1 – Product Review

Everyone loves bubble baths, right? I think so…I can’t think of anyone I know who doesn’t like bubbles! From small children, amazed at the wonder of being completely surrounded by bubbles, to adults hoping for some fun relaxation time, this 3-1 in one bubble bath from Sweetsations really does the trick! I’ve tried a couple of their product before, a kids’ sunscreen that smells just like chocolate , and a tinted sunscreen for me, both of which I really like, so it was natural that I would want to try this!

bubblebath2I was NOT disappointed with this at all! First off, it’s not just bubble bath. It’s a body wash and shampoo, too! We didn’t actually use it as shampoo..but it was amazing for bubble baths, and for washing our bodies! My girls and I really love the way this smells, and the amount of bubbles that can be created is awesome. Here’s a little trick my parents taught me: If you have a shower head with a hose, pull it down, and spray it into the water at about a 60 degree angle as the tub fills (after you add the bubble solution). You don’t want to create a whirlpool, just push enough air down into the water that you get big bubbles! If you hold it at a straight 90 degree angle, the water will push the bubbles too far down…make sure you angle it just enough 🙂

This bubble solution smells AMAZING. I couldn’t help but take a bath with it myself after the girls went to bed one night 😉 Mom’s allowed to relax too, right? It was…fabulous! This stuff has a ton of soothing ingredients, like Calendula, Chamomile, and Oat, which are great for Eczema, or even just play dry skin! It’s gentle enough for the entire family to use, which is a huge deal, though I’m going to have to buy a bigger bottle if I’ll be sharing it!

What a great read!

Beautiful Life with Cancer

The heat and humidity of the Georgia July summer welcomed the fourth daughter into a family of what would eventually consist of eight children.  I followed and imitated a God that was preached in my church and home. Life was life and I never questioned it.  My little heart dreamed a dream of my own life and my own plans that I longed for day by day.

My fairy godmother waved her wand and I was Cinderella at the ball dancing with my prince.  James looked into my eyes and I was loved like I never thought possible for a maid covered in cinders.  But then I heard the clock strike midnight and I ran.  I ran from a God that gave me cancer.  I ran from a God that did not promise health to my miracle baby.  I ran from a God that could take everything from me with…

Don’t Pop it, Dream Dot It! – Product Review

51ChTPWsz0LWhat is a Dream Dot? 
A Dream Dot isn’t simply a sticker — it’s a unique super absorbent hydro matrix patch. It targets spots and breakouts overnight using no harsh ingredients, yet gives dramatically effective results. With a 100% waterproof, breathable, satin-smooth, wafer-thin surface, it acts seamlessly as a second skin, conforming to any contour of the face. On contact with the spot, the patented core locks in and absorbs the spot exudate. A moist healing environment is formed, maintaining ideal pH balance, temperature and hydration levels while sealing in repair factors, which leads to faster healing. Pain is reduced as nerve endings are cushioned and protected in this moist condition. The patch swells and turns white overnight as it absorbs exudate giving a visible reduction in redness and inflammation when removed in the morning.
These are really awesome! I’m thrilled with the idea of zapping zits while I sleep! It’s funny though..now that I have them, I haven’t gotten any zits. Go figure! I literally can’t wait to get one, so I can try them out! Haha I never thought that I would want a zit before!
