I Just Can't Get Enough....

Happy Monday!!


10 Things I Can't Get Enough Of

1. Chocolate. Addicted? Maybe.
2. Listening to my girls laugh.
3. Candles. We go through SO many, but I love a pretty smelling home.
4. Clean, cold sheets. Especially after a very busy summer day.
5. Diet Coke. 
6. A good show on Netflix/Hulu. Any recommendations? 
7. "Me" time. I love my time with my girls and nephew but nothing beats winding down for a few minutes alone. 
8. Salads. So yummy, so many options, so filling!
9. Family time. The evenings and weekends FLY by.
10.Good books. Finding lots of time to read lately, what do you recommend?

Hot Yoga Towel Review





Believe it or not, I love to do yoga and pilates. I'm not the most flexible and my poses are very rough but it's easy on my old lady hips and I love it. One thing that has been hard for me, (besides some of the crazy poses) is the fact that my feet slip on my mat. I don't dare go too deep in a pose for fear of falling or slipping too far forward.Well thankfully Shandali thought of this with their Hot Yoga Towel.


Towel Info:

Microfiber
Super Absorbent & Quick-drying
Anti-slip,
Mat sized (24" x 72")

My Thoughts:
Eek! Vacuum cord, running puppy and some candy made it into this picture.

Loved it! Not only did this towel cover my yoga mat perfectly, it was soft (and not irritating) I didn't slip. I feel like I was able to hold my poses better, ones that specifically had more weight towards one direction and wasn't worried about sweaty feet making my slip. I was able to throw it in the wash after a couple uses, and it was easy and still looks great. Definitely recommend this product!

Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask Review



As a mom I've come to accept a few things: I will never be alone unless by some miracle my husband can distract our two girls for more than 10 seconds, little hands will always be on touching my face (making it that much more susceptible to breaking out), when I finally get my alone time I want to use it well and lately I want it to be used for relaxing. One thing I've turned to in the past couple years to help me enjoy some alone time are face masks. I love to grab a few at the store and try them out when I get a chance. 

When I got the chance to try the Pure Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask I was thrilled! I had heard about Dead Sea face mask on the TV before, and really wanted to try one! Here's a little of what Pure says about this particular facial mask:

 " Dead Sea Mud contains more than 21 skin-reviving minerals including magnesium, calcium, sulfur, bromide, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium. These essential minerals are present in our bodies, but are lost as we get older. These minerals are known to treat, detoxify, and cleanse our skin, to keep it looking young and refreshed"

Their facial mask  contains "100% pure, natural and certified organic ingredients" this means it is free of "sulfates, phosphates and parabens. cruelty free, vegan certified." All of that sounds great doesn't it?! I couldn't wait to give it a try, so one night when my girls were distracted I snuck away to my bathroom with my sister and her friend (all three of us with very different skin types) and we tried it out!


Before I give you our thoughts on this Mud Mask take a look at the benefits they say this mask has:

 "Anti-aging properties tighten pores promoting young, healthy natural skin. Rich Dead Sea minerals clean, heal, soften and revitalize your skin for an all-day glow. Organic essential oils moisturize and hydrate your skin, helping to reduce wrinkles."

Okay we loved this mask. I continue to do this mask weekly, and am constantly being questioned by my sister & her friend about when we will get to do it again. The first time we put this mask on it got warm, like a deep down in your pores, is it burning to you, will my face be red or will my skin fall of type warm. We were concerned, after a minute there was this big relief, a big cooling relief. After washing it off, no one had red irritated skin, our skin didn't feel dry and crave lotion, we all agreed our skin felt great. 

Only positives on this face mask! It came quickly after I ordered it, came packaged great, it wasn't a disaster to open. It was great to wear, made our skin look and feel great. Just great, great, great! Have you tried this mask out before? If not, are there any other great face masks that you recommend?

Alphabet Jumbled Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

As a mom there are so so many things that I worry about for my daughter. As she's turned three and we've started talking Pre-School this fall, or even just a simple fun dance/play class to keep her entertained and get a foot into the class setting. Whatever my husband and I decide, we have both agreed that we need to make sure she's constantly learning new things at home. One big thing on our list is to make sure she knows both her uppercase and lowercase ABC's. 

We do flashcards and we write on our chalkboard top table, but I knew there was more we could do. I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to review the Alphabet Jumbled App. Here's a little of what this app does and how it will help your child learn!




We provide 5 fun steps in Alphabet Jumbled to learn your A B C!
▶ KNOW YOUR A B C - Recognize the 26 letters
▶ FLASH CARDS - Familiarize with the ABCs
▶ EASY JUMBLE - Start un-jumbling 5 letters jumbles
▶ JUMBLE A-Z - Arrange the alphabets in the correct order in the shortest time possible!
▶ JUMBLE CHALLENGE - Can you un-jumbled all the letters under a minute?
Our advice: Practice your jumbles before heading here! "


Obviously some of these pieces were a little too hard for Miss A to do alone(Anything with Jumble in it), but she still had fun with some help. We've really enjoyed using this app and watching Miss A be excited to look at her ABC's on "my black iPad". This app has been a great help with reinforcing what she's being taught throughout the day. It's always great to find a good app that is helping children learn something in a new way. Miss A & I would definitely recommend this app to anyone that is looking for a fun learning app for their kids.
