Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review + Giveaway

I love candles, enough said. Any season you will see a candle burning in my home, from clean fresh scents to seasonal favorites. I am however very particular with my candles; I like good smelling candles; not over powering ones that cause headaches & especially those that don’t leave residue from burning. When I was approached by Old Factory Candle Company to try their candles, I was very eager to see for myself how they compared.

Old Factory Candle Company over different sets of 3 candles. Each candle burns clean and even for 20 hours. Hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. I tried that Winter Wonderland trio (Hot Cocoa, Roasted Chestnut & First Snow). I decided to bring these candles with my into my office at work, so I could see what others thought of the scents. They definitely burned clean, and even which was great. I did have them burning for a few hours at a time, as instructed – so they didn’t last me very long. I would have to say my favorites were Roasted Chestnut and First Snow, the Hot Cocoa wasnt the scent I expected and I didn’t get great feedback from my co-workers on the scent. All and all I was pleasantly surprised with the trio of candles, from the moment they arrived all packaged nicely to the detail in each candle. I do wish they offered larger versions of these scents, that would be a great option. I think these would make great gifts for hostesses, holidays, birthdays, or even just because.

My friends over at Old Factory Candle Company are giving one of my lucky readers a chance to win a candle trio of their own, just in time for the holidays. Make sure to enter below.

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes: Review & Giveaway




Getting ready in the morning has become a race for me to get myself and my son all set for the day. So any little bit of extra time I can save to look good for the day is a plus for me. Now in my normal makeup routine I go for 3 key items (moisturizer, bronzer and last but not least mascara). If I can get that on for my day-to-day running around, I am set. Sometimes my mascara falls short of my expectations, lets face it – some days your mascara looks perfect the next time not so much. I have tried many different mascaras, from drugstore brands to top of the line in department and boutique stores. Of course there are those I love and use daily, but what about the times you want the fake lash look – regardless if it’s a daytime or evening event. Fake lashes are great looking but the mess with applying it, is not! I’ve had friends in the past, get lashes applied at salons for long lengths of time and many have had issues with them pulling their lashes off – definitely not what was wanted or expected.

When I was approached by Michelle Bell, Purple Level Younique Presenter – I had no idea what I was in store for and was ready to try.

Those unfamiliar with Younique, they’re mission is to uplift, empower, validate, and ultimately build self-esteem in women around the world through high-quality products that encourage both inner and outer beauty and spiritual enlightenment while also providing opportunities for personal growth and financial reward. A brother and sister company that is only a little over a year old, has been on “fire” with its key product – 3D Fiber Lashes. They just re-released a new updated formula of the 3D Fiber Lashes in March of this year.

The 3D Fiber Lashes are a simple three-step process combining: Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. The 3D Fiber Lashes are water-resistant but easily washes off with warm water and facial cleanser at the end of the day. 



As you can see from the results below of my lashes after, they are definitely dramatic and long! I was totally amazed and got a ton of complements throughout they day I was wearing them. My eyes looked wider and brighter and I felt like I looked more awake. I was also given a few samples of a few of the mineral eye pigments and other face care items. The colors of the mineral pigments are perfect when paired with the 3D Fiber Lashes, and I highly recommend giving them a try as well. In all I really was surprised with the 3D Fiber Lashes, and am now fan. I know this will be a definite go to for those days I want that something extra, including special occasions.


Are you ready to try out the 3D Fiber Lashes yourself??! For more information visit the links above or enter below for your chance to win your very own set valued at $29. The winner will be chosen by May 5th 2014 – so don’t miss out on your chance!!

Happy Family – Happiest Baby Package Review & Giveaway



Many of you know that I am a new mom, and being a new mom there is a wealth of information that I don’t know yet (I’ve been told it’s a learning process by many veteran moms).  So when the idea of introducing solid foods came a reality, I did my research. Now I have been very particular with what I have eaten myself before my son, so finding a food company that keeps that in mind was important – and when I was contacted by Happy Family about their baby food products, I knew I was in good hands!

Those not familiar with Happy Family, they are a mom owned and operated business that launched on Mother’s Day 2006. Happy Family is a leading premium organic food brand delivering optimal nutrition for the entire family. In 2011, founder and CEO Shazi Visram earned the title of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year for New York. Happy Family has been named as one of the fastest growing organic food companies in the nation by Inc. magazine for two years running, and was named “Rockstar of the New Economy” by Fast Company in 2012. The company has since grown into a comprehensive line of products for the whole family. Today they provide organic foods for babies, toddlers, kids, and even adults! Happy Family has many parternships (including: Healthy Child Healthy World, and B Corps – to name a few).

My son was given the go ahead by our pediatrician at 4 months to start introducing him to solids, which was a very exciting time for both of us. So many fruits and vegetables to choose from Happy Family. From Stage 1 foods, my son honestly loved everyone he ate – from the pears to the carrots ( I even sampled them myself, and they are really good and fresh tasting!) For cereal the Happy Bellies Brown Rice Baby Cereal was my sons favorite (as you can see below).


 Happy Family has offered to give one lucky reader a chance to win the Happiest Baby Package that I tried with my son.
