{Review} Pura D'or Organic Argan Oil Shampoo

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I took a jump and colored my hair a lighter color this last November! To achieve a new lighter color I let my sister bleach my hair! EEK! I really love my new lighter hair, a nice dark Red Blonde. Besides the damage done by bleaching my only problem has been my hair color fading super fast! I tried only washing my hair every other day even though I don't care to do that and still found I was coloring it every almost 2 weeks.

Insert the chance to review the Pura D'or Organic Argan Oil Shampoo and bam! My hair was finally enjoying life again. Some highlights on this shampoo:

Sulfate, Paraben, and Gluten Free with built-in vitamins and DHT blockers
Helps prevent hair loss and split ends
Thickens hair and adds volume
Hydrates and shines hair for a healthy scalp

Sounds awesome right? It totally is! No longer is my hair fading incredibly fast thanks to cheap shampoos, it just fades at what I would consider a decent timeline considering my hair is red. Also, the damage done from bleaching the heck out of my dark hair and then constantly coloring my hair was reversed! Seriously. It has been wonderful. My husband agreed to start using it because he is worried about hair loss (someone must be turning 30 this year!) and swears he has noticed a slight change.  

Bonus, I barely use any shampoo and have noticed I don't need nearly as much conditioner as I thought! Love it! Do you color your hair often? Do you find that your hair color is fading fast- ever stop and think that it was your shampoo that was causing that problem? I know I didn't. What is your favorite shampoo for color treated/damaged hair? I know what mine is! I did receive this product in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own! I really do love this shampoo!

{Review} Car Seat Back Protector

I cannot keep little feet off the back of my car seat, especially if these little feet are dirty. It wasn't until we had two kids that I noticed this new problem. At least one of them has to be behind a seat and you know those seats attract feet like magnets. I used to have to tell them several times to keep their feet off, "put your shoes down", stop kicking my chair, but now I have this awesome little car seat back protector in my car. 

If only I could get that great of a picture of it in my car. I'll have to keep trying. Also I need to vacuum my car out, something happened with some peanut butter crackers. They may have exploded, or at least look like they did. 

Anyway, so one day I'm sitting in the parking lot and my husband is running into the store and I just so happened to leave the mail in the car on the day I got this! I stuck it on (easily!!!) and he didn't even notice! I love the fact that it went on so perfectly and so secretively. The packaging it came it was great! It also looks fine in the car, isn't even noticeable. Great product, would recommend it to anyone that has little feet that like to kick the back of their cars. Even though I got this product in exchange for a review, all opinions are my own. If you have little feet constantly touching the back of your car seat and want something to help protect it I'd definitely recommend this!

{Review} Clean Food Diet Ebook

January 21st and I'm pretty sure my eating hasn't improved a whole ton in the last 21 days. I'm pretty sure I haven't lost any weight, but you know what, I'm not super worried about it. If there is one thing I've learned about myself it's that making little changes over time is what works. It also works best for my kids. I've recently had the opportunity to review a Clean Food Diet Ebook and have incorporated some of the recipes into our meal routine. 

We've enjoyed the Meatless Chili, as well as the Zuchini Oven Fries on many occasions. I have really enjoyed making and trying these new recipes. It's great to know that I'm feeding my family cleanly. I have enjoyed that the recipes are easy to follow and several don't include tons of ingredients that I don't have on hand. This book teaches you what clean eating is, what to, how to eat clean as well as how to cook clean. The recipes include appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes and desserts. I'm super excited to keep adding these recipes into our lives.

I did get this in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own honest opinions. 

Do you eat clean? What are your favorite clean eating recipes?

{Review} Portollano Womens Gloves

If there is one thing I don't have enough of, or even any of, are gloves. I don't know how I have survived the last dozen or so winters without them. I don't remember a time having any other than the cheap dollar ones you can get but end up with holes in even if you cut the tags off. Well this past month I've been enjoying my Portollano Womens High Fashion Gloves. These gloves are super cute.

Honestly, at first I was super turned off by the color and was wondering what the heck people were thinking calling this color of orange a high fashion color, when to me it felt more like construction orange. After giving them a try for a couple days, I FELL IN LOVE. They are so comfy, so easy to put on and they are snug but just the right amount of snug. The color though it doesn't exactly match everything I have, it matches enough fairly well that I can get away with wearing them often. Also, great when I had to sneak them out to shovel some snow. Now they stay in the kitchen close to the garage so my sister can borrow them also, which she loves them too! 

I did get these in exchange for a review but all opinions are my own honest opinions. 

Do you have gloves that you love? Or are you lucky enough to live somewhere that you don't need gloves?

100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge - Original White Review

If there is one thing I love doing after a long busy day or even first thing in the morning, it would be washing my face. I love nice clean makeup free skin at bed time or starting with a clean slate in the morning. It wasn't until this past year that I started using things like sponges and cloths to help me wash my face. Of the few sponges and couple of wash cloths my favorite has been the  100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge - Original White

This sponge is amazing! It's a nice tear drop shape so it is great for getting around the edges of my nose, which is my driest and most easily irritated part of my face. Some highlights of this awesome sponge include:

It is 100% Natural - free from chemicals, pollution & irritants.
Biodegradeable- they say you can plant it in your flowerbed or compost once you're done with it and it's totally safe.
Exfoliates gently.

The bamboo charcoal absorbs toxins and fights bacteria and the excess oils on your face. 

 This has become one of my favorite items to use to wash my face. I've had it for over a month now and haven't had any problems with it falling apart like some of the other sponges I have used. If there was thing I could add, I'd include a shower hook for it. Luckily I already had some not being used, but it definitely helps with drying. I did receive this in exchange for a review but all opinions are my own! 

Do you use a sponge, washcloth or just your hand to wash your face? 
What's your favorite?
