New Summer Skincare With @PureBiology Products

OH SUMMER!  I'm so glad you're here!
All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting about these products.

It means plenty of days filled with outdoor fun, pool time and lots of sunscreen so we don't get burnt.
It also means that my "ALMOST" forty year old skin will be getting some summer freckles and color...which also means more wrinkles and aging.  
NOT A FAN!  Eeek!

So what's a mom to do?  
PureBiology just sent me two products to use this summer, in an effort to avoid further damage to my skin.  
These products are SOLD exclusively on and I am so excited to use them!
Do you use an eye cream?  
My mother in law has been telling me lately that it's a MUST for me...especially since I'm getting older.  So this TOTAL EYE product from PureBiology is the perfect thing for me to start using!  It has both immediate and lasting benefits.  It instantly lifts, firms and tightens skin.  It has Baobien Tien, which defends against the UV exposure (perfect for summer time) and provides added moisture and helps with optimal skin health.
But I am honestly most excited about this Vitamin C Plus Anti-Aging Serum - Fision Wrinkle Fix.  
I'm already starting to see fine lines and wrinkles that just keep getting deeper and more noticeable on my face.  It's frustrating, but part of the aging game, I guess.  This serum is made with 90% natural ingredients, hyaluronic acid and no artificial colors or filters.  It has a 30% concentration of Vitamin C, which is quite a bit more than other brands.  It's main goal though, is to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and even age spots.  SCORE!  I'll be using this all up for sure!
PureBiology has more products than the two I'm personally trying myself...including a Anti Hair Loss & Growth Stimulating Shampoo & Conditioner, Enhanced lash enhancement product, etc.

Graduation Party Success With @TheSparkleSoiree and @Pretty_Krumbs

I know...I know...
They only GRADUATED from Elementary and Middle School...
But I love a reason to celebrate our kids!

All products for this feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
So last night, we had a quick little party/aka family gathering to celebrate these they move onto middle school and high school.
We decorated the house in black, white and gold.  
In fact, an Etsy store called @TheSparkleSoiree (who also happens to be a local mom in our area) created an amazing banner just for this event.
The letters are super glittery & adorable and every detail...down to the cap/gown and the diploma, were PERFECT for our little graduation party theme.
Our cake from @Pretty_Krumbs was pretty GOSH DARN PERFECT!

This AMAZING cake lady (who is a local small business) created this cake with so much details, I didn't want to cut into it to share it.  But the taste inside the cake was almost as good as the outside looked.  The cake was moist, the frosting NOT TOO SWEET and the kids (well some of them) loved chewing on the fondant.

The best way for me to cater this party, mid week (my kids are still in school with different pick up times than normal) was to order pizza's from Dominos for $5.99.  
SUCH A GOOD DEAL & their pizzas are good!
We had a veggie tray and some sodas too, because it's always fun to let the kids have a treat on occasion (we don't keep sodas in our house).
The PARTY WAS AN AWESOMELY FUN SUCCESS...especially thanks to the extra special details added from @TheSparkleSoiree and @Pretty_Krumbs !  
It just wouldn't have been the same without them.

CLICK HERE to check out The Sparkle Soiree's Etsy store.  Maybe she'll be working up some banners, cupcake toppers and cake toppers for your next party or gathering!

CLICK HERE to check out @Pretty_Krumbs Instagram page for details.  Maybe she'll make your next cake!

You'll Be Taking This Indoor/Outdoor Blanket Everywhere - @MontemLife

We are a family that loves blankets.  
Especially because we are a family that spends lots of evenings in the fall OUTSIDE...watching boys swing bats and feeling the cool breezes.  

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 opinions about this product.
Because we are a family that is on the go so much with sports and such, it's pretty typical for us to leave a warm blanket (at least one) in the back of the minivan...just so we always have one available.
Montem sent us a blanket that for sure will be our "GO TO" blanket as the fall approaches...or even now, for snuggling around the house.
It already comes in a handy dandy carrying bag, which keeps it clean, portable and perfect for storing in the back of the van or the closet in the house.  
This morning, I had some coffee and snuggled up with it to give it a test run.  It's so's basically a sleeping bag...BLANKET!
I even tried it outside to see if it would keep me warm since the mornings tend to be a bit worked!  I LOVE THIS BLANKET.
The most challenging thing about this puffy blanket?  
Rolling it up so it will fit back in the bag...but I mastered it already, so it really isn't that hard!
This Sneaky Snuggler blanket is on sale CLICK HERE to check it out!

Support A Small Business And A GREAT CAUSE Too - @CrossBoneOutfitters #BackTheBlue

Our towns & cities would be a much different place to live in, if we didn't have Officers keeping the peace.
I know that everyone has an opinion on topics like these now days, so I will tread lightly...

No products were sent for this feature!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest feelings on this fundraising effort for William Gentry's family.

Regardless of your personal feelings on the job they do, it's never right for an innocent person to loose their life.  
I think we can all agree on that!  
At least I hope so!  
I have many friends who work in this field and my heart goes out to their families as they leave their homes every day, not sure if they will come back home alive.
Heaven knows it's a job I would never be brave enough to do.
My friend's own a small business called "Cross Bones Outfitters".  
They provide so many awesome products including: clothing, accessories, bait, casting reels and rods, etc.  Plenty of fishing products...for those who love being out on the water and some things too for those of us who love the ones who love fishing.

They have also created some pretty awesome tees, and one in particular that donates proceeds for fallen Deputy William Gentry (his family) in Highlands County, FL! All the proceeds from these t-shirts are going to Dept Gentry's Family.

The @crossboneoutfitters t-shirts range in price from $28.50 - $33.00 and like I said, will be going towards a great cause!  
A family who lost their loved one, because he went to stop a domestic dispute/fight over a cat and will never come home to hug his family again.

CLICK HERE to purchase this t-shirt or gear for your FISHERMAN.  
Wear it proudly and know you're helping a grieving family out at the same time.
