MAGNETIC EYELINER - IS IT A YAY OR A NAY?

I love all things eyelashes!  
With that being said, I have never once been able to apply false lashes to myself.  
The whole glue the lashes, let them dry till their tacky, then attempt to apply the lashes on your eyelid, as close to your lash line as you can thing...NEVER WORKS FOR ME!  
It's frustrating and messy and typically ends up with my eyes almost being glued shut. 
THANK YOU, NEXT!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was given $10 extra to cover paypal fees, etc. in the delivery process.  No other compensation was offered for my giving my honest opinion about this product.
I will never try that type of false lashes again...wanna know why?
Because I just tried this magnetic eyeliner I purchased on AMAZON and this is a game changer.  This stuff is like MAGIC!!  You simply apply this eyeliner like you would with any normal eyeliner.  Let it dry.  Then you pull out a pair of magnetic lashes (this eyeliner comes with a pair), put them where you would like them to be on your eyelid and they almost click into place.  I am telling you...it's like magic.  
I did them on my daughter to try them out...because honestly, trying them out on myself would be a disaster.  
After seeing how easy they were to apply on her...I went to my bathroom and immediately tried on me.  Guess what?  They were just as easy to apply on myself as they were to put on her.  It's crazy!  
The downside is not knowing really how safe this eyeliner is for my eyes (though it does say it's FDA approved)...because it has to have some sort of metal in it for the magnetic eyelashes to stick on.  I will be careful when removing it with a face wipe or facial cleaner (as to not get it into my eye).  
Have I sparked your interest?  
Do you struggle with applying falsies?  
Looking for a simple alternative that can make your morning routine go from 30 minutes to 10, because putting your lashes on is so simple and fool proof?

CLICK HERE to order yourself some magnetic eyeliner (it comes with a pair of magnetic lashes too) and get into the LASH GAME with a quick and easy alternative to applying false lashes!

TRUST ME - MOM WANTS #succulents from @Wild_Interiors For #MOTHERSDAY2019

So, this wasn't supposed to be a Mother's Day post...believe it or not.  
But honestly, after a package arrived today, that I've been waiting a few weeks for...I realized that it's the perfect "mood" for this post after all.

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.
Mother's Day is only a couple Sunday's away!  
Have you already bought your Mom, Mother In Love, daughters who are Moms, Grandmas, etc. gifts for this special Holiday?  
It's the one Holiday that truly honors Mother's for giving their everything to raise us, grow us and teach us how to survive in this crazy world!!
So instead of buying her a card (that she's probably going to toss in the trash eventually) or a gift card to buy herself some coffee or something from her favorite store.  
Consider this...buy her a succulent or two from Wild Interiors.  
BEFORE YOU SHAKE YOUR HEAD NO...and totally disregard my suggestion of this gift for mom this year...check out why I think she will love this idea too:
1.  Succulents are hearty and pretty hard to kill.  Even those lacking a green thumb can keep them alive with little or no effort at all.
2.  They require sunlight and water only every so often (you don't have to water them but once a month sometimes...depending on what they are).
3.  It gives her something to MOTHER when you're not around...because once a mother, always a mother.
4.  They are super adorable and add greenery to any room of the house.
The succulents that Wild Interiors just sent me are going to be living in my daughter's "cactus themed" bedroom.  
They match this decor perfectly and should be happy and thriving in there (as long as we open the windows to give them some light and the girls remember to water them when needed).
With that being said...this mama just might be requesting more for her Mother's Day gift this year.  Why?  For all the reasons I listed above.  I mean, come on.  I was not blessed with a green thumb, but I've managed to keep the succulents I already have in the house alive.  PRAISE THE LORD!  It does give me something to monitor, care for and MOTHER...as my kids get older and need less assistance from me.  I love the look of them 100% too.  They make the cutest accent decor for any room of the house really...just probably not the bathroom (cause there isn't probably a lot of sunlight coming in).
Do you know a mom who may appreciate this type of Mother's Day Gift this year?  
CLICK HERE to check out their entire selection of Succulents and Plants and get them shipped immediately.  

You can thank me later for giving you this simple, easy and sweet gift idea for MOMS this Mother's Day!

Check Out @GourmetGiftBaskets For All Your MOTHER'S DAY Gift Giving Needs!

Can you believe how quick this year is flying by?  
Mother's Day is literally right around the corner!

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.


Are you at a loss of what to buy your wife (mother of your children) for Mother's Day?  

What about sending presents to your moms who may not live close by?  
Do you know a mom that is feeling a bit stressed out and maybe could use a little pick-me-up?
Gourmet Gift Baskets has a huge selection of "READY TO SHIP" baskets with MOM in mind.  These gift baskets are loaded full of things that will not only help a mom relax, but also give her a chance to take care of herself for a moment...and maybe just breathe a little.  
Sometimes as mom's that's literally the best gift we could ever receive.  Not that we don't love our job, but our job as mother is ALL CONSUMING!  
The best thing about Gourmet Gift Baskets...they handle all the details for you.  Even the card on the top!  It's incredible the details that are put into each basket.  
I received the "Mother's Day Rose Gift Crate"!  It's not only packed full of yummy things for this mommy to enjoy on a "time out"...but also is packed in the most adorable natural wood crate, instead of a basket.  This crate is going to definitely be used in the future to hold keepsakes, photos or who knows what.  I love it!  While I haven't tried the wine yet, the description sounds fantastic and I can't wait to open the cheese, crackers and chocolates...so I can indulge my taste buds as well.
If you have a mom who you typically shop for on Mother's Day (wife, mother, mother in law), please consider checking out Gourmet Gift Basket's selection of Mother's day baskets before you head out on foot to the stores.  They just might have the perfect gift and you never even have to leave home to have it shipped out.  How convenient is that?  Plus...she's going to love what arrives at her front door.  Who doesn't love receiving a fun package to open?  I know I love it!
CLICK HERE to see the entire selection of Mother's Day Gift Baskets and don't forget to tell the mom's in your life how much you love and appreciate them on this upcoming holiday.

Who Says The EASTER BUNNY Only Brings Candy In The Baskets??? @Wowwee

We have a lot of family HOLIDAY traditions!  
Some that I have had with my kids because I grew up with similar traditions and some that I have come to really enjoy just because I'm a mommy and it's fun!

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 tradition we have for sure is that the EASTER BUNNY leaves a basket with goodies and typically an EASTER EGG hunt as well.  
I normally buy eggs for each kid (either a different type or they have a certain color) and I try to make it fun and fairly inexpensive too.  
With as many kids we have have, EASTER BASKETS can get kinda pricey when all is said and done. 
Last year we did something a little different and they got their baskets with a few sweets in them and they each had a letter to a clue in their basket...because we have started to loose some of the "bunny" magic because they are getting to that age.
The clue, once they figured it out, led them to our garage...where an extra special EASTER BUNNY gift was waiting! 
They loved it!  
Of course, we had an egg hunt too...because we have to! 

This year, I am all about not buying the candy (they eat enough sweets as it is)...even though I MUST buy some Cadbury Creme Eggs for myself (they are my absolute favorite).  
Instead, I'm excited to load up the baskets with things they can play with...things that won't cause cavities and will last a bit longer than the usual cheap EASTER BASKET fillers.
PinkFong...most recently known for the BABY SHARK SONG (in partnership with Wowwee)... have the most adorable plush BABY SHARKS SONG CUBES that...when you press on them...play that song.  
I know without a doubt that this is something my youngest niece is going to absolutely ADORE!  
I mean...what kid isn't currently obsessed with this song anyway?  
Isn't this the sweetest?  Plus...it's super soft and the perfect size to stick in the diaper bag or have in the car for entertainment and distraction.  LOVE IT!
We love FINGERLINGS and without a doubt my younger kiddos think they are pretty awesome too, not to mention my nieces and nephews.  How adorable are these new FINGERLINGS friends 
I love that Fingerlings have products that cater to both boys and girls as well.  These interactive Wowwee toys actually "play" with your kids...all while hanging on to their fingertip.  
They are small enough to go in the EASTER BASKETS and be with you on outings or ride along in the car.  These won't break your bank either...

All of these products would make awesomely fun EASTER BASKET fillers...that won't cause cavities, but still provide plenty of sweetness for the upcoming holiday.  Don't forget...EASTER IS THIS SUNDAY!!!  SHOP NOW!

STINKY SHOES BE GONE - @armandhammer_footcare SHOE REFRESHER SPRAY

I've got a HUGE confession to make to you guys!
Please don't think bad of me...but

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.

...most of the time when I wear sneakers...I DON'T WEAR SOCKS!


Okay, some of you may be really grossed out right now, right?  

Some of you may be nodding with me in understanding...because you do the exact same shamefully smelly thing.

The bad thing about not wearing socks in shoes is, eventually...especially during the hotter months of the year, the inside of the shoes start getting smelly from foot sweat.  It's inevitable.  It's gross and stinky...but it happens to even your favorite pairs of converse or vans.

So what can you do about it, without tossing the shoes in the trash?  

ARM AND HAMMER has a new ODOR DEFENSE SHOE REFRESHER SPRAY that is incredible.  It's so easy to use!  You simply shake the bottle, turn it upside down, spray it in the shoes and then let them sit overnight.  
It eliminates the odor on contact.  It's like MAGIC in a bottle!
DO YOU UNDERSTAND what this means?  
This gives new life to your stinky smelly...favorite sneakers.  
HOW EXCITED ARE YOU ABOUT THIS?  
Not gonna lie, I am pretty excited too and even more thrilled with how well it works.
