@LiveClean.USA - PRODUCTS I'm Proud To Have In Our Home

In our home, we have several who have very sensitive skin.  
Because we also have allergies too, I have to be super careful about what products we bring into our home.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company being featured!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.

Sensitive skin means that we need to find products that are made by companies that not only believe that living clean is not just a matter of what we put in our body, but also what we use on our body.
Live Clean makes products that I am confident about using in our home for so many reasons.  
WHY?

Live Clean makes products that live to a set of standards and values:
Their ARGAN Oils Line smells amazing (like I can't stop smelling my hands after I wash them) and makes your skin feel clean and cared for too.  
It's the perfect hand soap and body wash to use everyday in our family.
Showering everyday with this product will leave you smelling clean and help you start your day out feeling clean & fresh too.  
Plus Argan Oil replenishes and nourishes your skin!  
Especially during the winter months...we all could use a little more of that!
I say YES to Live Clean!  
What about you?

"BOO" Your Neighbors With @SlammersSnacks THIS HALLOWEEN

Have you ever been Boo'd before?  
Last year was our first experience with it...and our kids were crazy about it!  
In fact, our neighbor across the street, who we later found out was the one who started it, was "BOO'd" like 10 times.  

I was not paid to feature this post!  All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company being featured.  I was not offered any monetary compensation in return for my honest opinion about the products.
'
If you haven't been "Boo'd" before, check out the picture above or click through on it to learn more (and different options) about it.  Your kids will be super excited to take part in spreading the JOY & FUN of the upcoming holidays around your neighborhood.
(this was the kids last year, right after we go Boo'd!)
Part of the BOO'ing, is filling up a goodie bag or basket with yummy & sometimes sweet treats.  
We have a pantry full of things that definitely aren't that "HEALTHY" of an option, when it comes to snacking.  They taste good, but may not be the best option for our health...and honestly may not taste as good as some of the healthier options out there.  
NOW WE HAVE A PANTRY FULL OF Slammers Snacks!
Slammers Snacks are a tasty, healthy, fun alternative to the unhealthy snacking options for your kids.  Especially during a season where there is plenty of processed sugary treats and candy being passed out, you're going to want to try these out with your kids.
What if you filled your "BOO'ing" bag up with Slammers Snacks instead?  
Would your neighbors appreciate the gesture for their kids?  
Would the kids enjoy the taste?  
Would the parents even enjoy the product themselves? 
PROBABLY!  We do in this house!  
Not only the kids enjoy the Slammers Snacks, but my husband is a huge fan!  
He loves to grab and go, when he's headed out the door for a long day in LA or a day of window washing.  These snacks are portable, filled with good organic super foods and give you a healthy burst of energy.
Have your kids tried Slammers Snacks before?  
BUY SOME for your family or even to pass out to the Trick-O-Treaters in your neighborhood.  Maybe you'll not only share some healthy sweetness with the kids, but also offer their parents a great healthier alternative snack to offer their children for their lunches or snacks at home.

Sister Bonding Time - A HOLIDAY GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING @HardCandyLife

GUYS...Christmas is literally 77 days away!  
If that doesn't give you a slight panic attack, then I don't know what will!  
I haven't even started shopping yet, have you?

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is when my favorite companies start to bring out their HOLIDAY lines and kits.  I love browsing the aisles at my favorite department stores, planning my Christmas list for family and friends.  One of our favorites, a brand we have told you about a lot, carried exclusively at Walmart is "HARD CANDY" cosmetics, and their holiday kits are on the way out.
We received a couple of Hard Candy's HOLIDAY 2017 kits, that you need to be on the lookout for at Walmart, for your teens or even for yourself this Christmas.  Not only are they a great deal, with all that is included...but their products really are fabulous too.  
Moms and teens girls alike can enjoy & use their full range of products.
We received the "Glossing All The Way Up Collection" and the "All Lit Up Cosmetic Collection" to try out, which will be arriving at a Walmart near you really soon!   There is SO MUCH STUFF in these collections and they really are inexpensive!  LIKE TOTALLY PERFECT for stocking stuffers or gifts for your favorite tween/teen/or mommy friend.
Since our oldest daughter is still learning makeup techniques for when she starts officially wearing makeup to high school next year... she was delighted to not only receive these sets to try out, but to have them for when she starts wearing makeup.  
Her sweet little sister (who's quite a trooper) volunteered to be her model tonight.  
Watching these two giggle and bond, as she proceeded to give her a makeup makeover with these two Hard Candy Makeup Holiday Collections, made this mommy's heart happy.  
If for nothing else, getting these kits to try out & to see the two of them enjoying each other's company was WORTH IT.
She started with the ALL LIT UP COSMETIC KIT!
The "Contour & Sculpt Kit", which has an awesome tutorial on the back side of the makeup tin.  
She proceeded with the "Blush and Luminizer Kit", to give her sister's face a little highlighting, bronzing and color.
Then she used the "Smoky Eye Kit" to make her eyes pop a little extra.
Finally, she finished off the look with the Glossing All The Way Lip Collection color of her choice.  She chose a metallic mousse color, which looked amazing on her (and not to MUCH).  
The girls loved the smell of these lip glosses too.  
Plus, with a kit like this, they have a color to go with every outfit or look.
Her finished look was bright, beautiful and not to crazy for a TWEEN makeup look.  
It just brightened her face right up, even though she is already naturally beautiful!

HAVE YOU USED HARD CANDY products before?  
CLICK HERE to head over and see their full range of products!  You may be amazed with all the fabulous things they offer!

She's Not Quite FIVE MONTHS Yet... PUPPY UPDATE

I've been trying to update you guys on our puppy, Harley, as she grows up!  
So here's our newest puppy update...
TODAY she is officially 144 days old, 
20 weeks & 4 days or 
4 months & 21 days...however you want to put it!
She is learning to become very protective and ON GUARD!  
When she hears something (especially someone at the front door), she jumps up, ears perk up, and she barks on cue.  
She is also still very much a puppy and enjoys spending time snuggling safely tucked behind her mommy.   
I guess I make her feel safe!  
It's funny, because she doesn't realize that someday, she'll be the one making me "FEEL SAFE".  It melts me inside a little!
She's lost a few baby teeth that we've actually found...this one she lost last night...and the TOOTH FAIRY didn't come for her tooth, but the picture is pretty darn cute!
She loves to play with all of her toys, but especially with empty plastic bottles and cartons.  
It's cute & funny to watch her run around with them!  
WE LOVE her & we are all enjoying watching her learn and grow.  She's smart, obedient for the most part (she is still a puppy), very social & protective with our family of 8 and really loves her big brother too!

I Loved These As A Kid And Now My Kids Do Too @WelchsFruitSnacks

I LOVED Fruit Rolls when I was a kid!  
It was something I was always excited about getting my lunchbox for a snack at school or having for a snack after school.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products!
Our kids really haven't had the pleasure of enjoying a good fruit roll until now...and they are going to be obsessed!
Welchs Fruit Rolls are brand new and we were so excited to try them out!  They arrived today, so I set them on the counter to see what the kids would do when they got home from school!
THEY WERE SO EXCITED, that they busted open the boxes as soon as we walked through the door, because the couldn't wait to try them out!
AS YOU CAN SEE...they enjoyed them completely!
Welchs Fruit Rolls are delicious and also super fun to eat!
I, as mom, enjoy the fact that they are made with real fruit and come in three great flavors:  Strawberry, Tropical Punch and Berry!
And I'm not gonna lie, I will eat them too!  
They take me back to my childhood, which makes my heart smile!
These fruit rolls are not "shy" in the length category either, as you can see by my daughter, who is modeling the length of each roll, because they are "BERRY LONG" fruit rolls (or hers was at least)!  Ha ha!

YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE enjoying these Welchs Fruit Rolls in their snack bags for school, with their packed school lunches or even as a quick & fun after school snack.


FIND Welchs Fruit Rolls in a store near you and remember you saw them here first!

Happy FALL Y'all - FINALLY!

We've made it!  
Today is the first day of fall 2017!  

No products were sent for this feature!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting this fall feature.  
Who's as excited as me?
Do you know what this means?
Oh wait...that's what my sister thinks it's means when fall arrives!  HA HA!

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year!  
We get to pull out the hoodies, the uggs, drink hot chocolate and snuggle under blankets and enjoy the cool crisp autumn air that blows freely through our home in the evenings.  I LOVE IT!
It means that the leaves will be changing colors and life just seems to, for some reason, go a little calmer and smoother in these months as the old sheds away, to make way for the new that will be arriving!
SO HAPPY FALL Y'all (my parents live in Texas and that's how they pronounce YOU ALL) and enjoy today and the lead up to the HOLIDAY SEASON!  WOOHOO!

I was not paid to feature this post!  There were not products sent for this review/feature!  All the graphics were found on and borrowed from pinterest.  I will not gain anything financially by posting this feature.

Time For A PUPPY Update...

It's been awhile since I've updated you all on our puppy, 
Harley Quinn!  
I bet you're curious how our puppy training is going?

Harley was purchased on our own accord.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting about our puppy or her growth!
She is officially 4 months old today!  
She has finished her puppy shots, is fully potty & crate trained and is growing every day!  She is my shadow when I am home, following me all around the house while I do chores!  I'd like to think she's a little attached to me!  She is not a fan of the vacuum cleaner (but I don't think any dog is) and really likes to play outside!
She is learning to do tricks ("dance with me", sit and "sit pretty")!
She is obsessed with ice cubes! LIKE OBSESSED!
And she plays very hard every day!  
So hard, in fact, I caught this picture of her yesterday...fast asleep with her ball in her mouth!
She's adorable, rambunctious and full of life!  
WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER!
