{Review} Baking Wizards Silicone Baking Mats

Baking is something I love to do but don't get to do enough of. It seems like getting through the day with my 2 girls & nephew is hard enough, that when it comes time to make dinner I don't even stop to think about dessert. My family doesn't get nearly enough cookies. 

A couple weeks ago I got the chance to try out two Silicone Baking Mats from Baking Wizards. My family was thrilled that I finally got to making some cookies for them. (If only I had remembered to take pictures!) These mats are FDA & LFGB Approved. They are non-stick and super easy to clean. They can be used for baking, roasting, warming and also preparing dough!

I'm loving these mats! They made baking cookies for my family easy! I feel like the cleaning up part of baking is the worst. I usually leave the trays in the sink waiting for someone else to wash them. These mats are ridiculously easy to clean and fit perfectly in my already very full oven drawer. 

Prior to getting these I had another silicone mat and didn't quite love it. It is nice but didn't find myself using it very often, it is very large and didn't fit well on my baking trays. Luckily these fit perfectly. If you are looking for a silicone baking mat to make your life easier I'd definitely recommend these! Have you ever used a silicone baking mat while baking?

{Review} AND SKLEER Giveaway!

Not too long ago I was sent some SKLEER. Ever heard of it? I hadn't either. SKLEER is a Skin Conditioning Gel that is said to help you with a bunch of different skin conditions. It can help with dermatitis, eczema, dry skin, insect bites, burns, abrasions, nappy rash, hives, sun burn and more. 

So what's inside right? SKLEER is a combination of essential oils. It includes Eucalyptus Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Caraway Oil, Cinnamon Oil & Cardamom Oil. These oils work together to help with healing your skin condition. The gel helps the oils penetrate into the skin to help with the effectiveness of this product. SKLEER does not contain parabens, lanolin, harmful preservatives, corticosteriods, hydroquinone and it is not tested on animals. It also does not contain Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Retinoic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxiode. (I love the fact that the ingredients are few and natural. Made it easier for me to try out on my girl's dry patches! 

Both of my girls have a dairy allergy. Stomachs get upset and their skin dries out incredibly bad, causing them to itch, which if you have dry skin you know that scratching only makes it worse. Well with the warmer weather and more visits to the in-laws my girls have been given ice cream. (Thanks grandma! - NOT!) and we've had to up our skin care routine for them. We've been using SKLEER at night before bed to help clear up the dry patches. It's worked great! 

I've been trying it out on my face to help with some break-outs- and it's been wonderful! I put it on before my make-up or after washing my face for bed. It's really helped to clean up my face! I've given a couple of the samples out to my brother (acne problems) my mom (dry hands), and my sister (sensitive skin), and they've all had great things to say about it! I did get this product in exchange for a review but my opinion is my honest opinion. I've loved this product and recommend it to those that are looking for help with their skin conditions. 

Here's a fun giveaway for some SKLEER Skin Conditioning Gel!

April- Guy Behind The Blog.

Time for my sweetheart to answer some more questions! Yes I failed and totally missed the link-up but hey, here's the post! 

1 // Has Starbucks ever spelled your name wrong on a cup? If yes, what's the craziest way that someone has spelled it?
This man does not like Starbucks. He's crazy. His name isn't spelled wrong too often at all. I wish I had the same deal. 

2 // Who would play your wife/fiance/girlfriend in a movie or TV show about your lives?

He won't answer. He doesn't know and doesn't care. (Wonderful.)

3 // What is your proudest accomplishment?

4 // What is your favorite holiday and why?
Thanksgiving- food!

5 // What is your favorite breed of dog?  If you don't have a favorite breed, describe the characteristics of your ideal dog (or cat)!

Monday Check-In.

Today is such a beautiful day. I wish there was a time this evening to go out and enjoy it but today is also a busy one. It seems like lately our days have been busier and busier. It's bittersweet. With all that is going on I feel like I need to do a little check in. 

Today was Day 14 of 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene. I am finally feeling like I'm seeing some progress with my strength and my ability to push through the poses taking them further than I typically done. I think the fact that there isn't cardio and the videos are different every day makes it much easier for me to keep up with.

Today was also Day 1 of no soda/energy drinks. Which isn't going to be too big of a deal, I have cut soda down to maybe once a week and energy drinks have just been on the weekend, but I'm ready to be past it. Eventually I'll cut out caffeine completely. I have to.  

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week. (NIAW). I joined a event on Facebook and posted a photo of my sweet babies to the group and realized moments later that my friends would be able to see. Instead of quickly deleting the post and pretending it never happened, I've spent the day letting people in. Letting my friends know what we've been through on our journey to growing our family. The support I've felt the last 4 hours has been amazing. (More on this in a later post.)

I'm working on several posts and hope to get more caught up with you soon! I feel like I spend more time commenting than I do writing actual posts of my own. What is going on in your week so far?

 Hope you have a wonderful week!
