Chocolate Kisses Luxury Lip Loofah Review from "Nicole Made This"



I have used loofahs before, but never a loofah for my lips! I actually never knew anything like that existed before finding Nicole from NicoleMadeThis.com. She has a lot of neat items that she makes fresh to order just for her customers.

I received the "Chocolate Kisses Luxury Lip Loofah" and is smelled literally like sweet chocolate! This lip scrub is easy to use, just rub on with your finger, rub your lips back and forth a few times and any dead skin comes off ---just use a tissue or rub any dead skin off. It left my lips very soft and kissable ( per my husband, which made me wonder, were my lips not kissable before!?!).

These lip loofahs contain: mango butter, vitamin e, essential oil, sugar, all natural flavors. They are available in the following varieties:
  • Blood Red - a sweet squeeze of Italian blood orange
  • Ruby Red - youthful sweet ruby red grapefruit
  • Sweet Mint - a hint of peppermint and a touch of sweetness
  • Acai You Standing There - natural acai berry flavor and a hint of sweetness
  • Chocolate Kisses - natural sweet chocolate flavor dances on your lips
  • Fairytale Kiss - natural sweet apple flavor makes your kisses the sweetest in the realm
  • Gotta' Whole Latte Love - perfect sweet creamy kisses for the coffee lover in you
  • Citrus Sorbet Smooches - this lemon treat is light, bright and sweet
  • Lavender Lip Lock - a soothing blend of lavender, chamomile and sweet vanilla
  • Simply Soft - all of the lip lovin' goodness with no added fragrance or hints of sweetness; just the pure stuff!

Over at NicoleMadeThis.com she has an assortment of products including lip loofahs, stubble bubbles shaving soaps, sugar-based scrubs, body and hairwash, and even stuff for your furry friends!

Nicole's mission is very simple---she has very sensitive skin, so she creatively discovered a way to satisfy her own needs while sharing these great products with everyone. Her mission is to produce handcrafted personal care products in an artisanal manner - using the finest ingredients available and blended in small batches to ensure quality - resulting in nothing less than an affordable luxury, and because the products are naturally derived and vegan-friendly, they are a responsible indulgence.

Decorating for Fall with Oriental Trading



The season's are changing, the temperature is falling and that means fall is right around the corner! I just love fall and everything that comes with it. The cooler weather, the crispness that is in the air, the scents, the colors and the decorations!

I love to decorate our home with the changing seasons, the decorations are usually something simple, like candles (one can never have too many candles). I always put out the appropriate scented candles for which ever season it is---for fall that is apple, and pumpkin scents. I have never had many fall decorations, but this year I received a few fall decorations from Oriental Trading.

Oriental Trading is the nation's largest direct merchant of value-priced party supplies, arts and crafts, toys and novelties, and a leading provider of school supplies and affordable home décor and giftware.


When looking at Oriental Trading fall decorations, I literally sat in awe looking at all of the cute, and elegant products they had to offer. From pumpkins to haystacks, from place settings to scarecrows, Oriental Trading has such an array of fall home décor products---there is something for every home.


I was excited to get this fall swag, maybe a little too much (I took down a family picture to hang this up). Now before you think bad of me, my girls really wanted the family picture in their room---so the perfect place and opportunity to hang this swag!


The first time I saw this throw, I fell in love with it and had to have it. Throws are a great way to brighten up any room, throw them on the back of a chair and not only have I decorated the chair, I have something to keep me warm on those cool, crisp, fall nights ---- or when my husband decides to keep the thermostat on 65!



Some might think it is too early to decorate for fall, NOT ME! I say do whatever you want, it's your home, decorate until you cannot decorate no more! But one thing that we all need to do is to be thankful---be thankful for our homes, our families, our church, our friends, cooler weather and Oriental Trading!

Seriously, you will love Oriental Trading! They have great products, fast shipping and prices that will not break your pocketbook!

al fresco, Chicken Sausage Links Review


al fresco, America’s #1 chicken sausage brand, offers chicken sausages, meatballs, patties and links that can be prepared as the main source of protein in a meal or used as a simple ingredient swap in many recipes, providing better-for-you options for fall comfort dishes.

Our family recently got to try a few packs of the breakfast links and not only do they have 70 percent less fat than pork sausage, but they have a few of my favorite added ingredients— like blue berries, sage and thyme, and my favorite of them all are the Apple Maple Chicken Sausage with pure Vermont maple syrup!

These are quick and easy to prepare for breakfast and I am sure all of the kids would enjoy something warm to eat before leaving for school. If you didn’t want these links for breakfast, you could warm them up and put between small buns and have sliders for lunch or serve as an appetizer during that beloved football game.

al fresco are available in major supermarkets nationwide and come in a variety of flavors that the whole family can enjoy, from traditional country style to roasted garlic to spinach & feta.

Back to College with The Mr. Coffee® Coffeemaker + Hot Shot Station


Here, students are arriving at college campuses with smiles on their faces and maybe a little fear in their hearts. For the returning students, they are happy to see their friends that they made last year and maybe even rooming with some of them. For the new students there’s this sense of not knowing what to do or what is expected of you.

Our oldest son is a sophomore this year, so he experienced that ‘not knowing’ and not really sure what was expected of him feeling last year. This year he is a little bit more prepared in that area.

While there will be a lot of studying, late nights, and a little uncertainty from time to time ahead for everyone, there is one thing that is constant that I see on college campuses, caffeine! The students need something to keep them awake, right?




We recently received The Mr. Coffee® Coffeemaker + Hot Shot Station and while I think it is neat (especially that Hot Shot Station), my husband loves the thing. He says it makes the best coffee that he has ever tasted….and it does make pretty good coffee.

I like using the Hot Shot Station for oatmeal in the mornings for breakfast (or for lunch like today!)



1

Every dorm room needs The Mr. Coffee® Coffeemaker + Hot Shot Station; this will put students on the fast track to hot food and beverage prep. This multi-tasking coffeemaker and hot water station provides the ultimate in convenience and versatility, featuring two separate water reservoirs for brewing a pot of fresh coffee while dispensing hot water for other beverages, like hot chocolate and tea, and instant foods like mac and cheese, oatmeal and more.

You can buy The Mr. Coffee® Coffeemaker + Hot Shot Station for your college student by clicking here—buy it for them and surprise them with it. I guarantee it will put a smile on their face!

College Students Drink Your Daily Fruits & Veggies

1a

We recently received the Oster® Juice & Blend 2 Go™ Juice Extractor and Personal Blender for review and our oldest son quickly claimed it! He has been wanting a juicer for a while now and was happy when this arrived!

The Oster® Juice & Blend 2 Go™ Juice Extractor and Personal Blender has the power to extract all the nutrients from fruits and vegetables with a compact design for counter-top, space- saver!

We plan on putting this the Oster® Juice & Blend 2 Go™ Juice Extractor and Personal Blender to great use this first semester of college. I can extract juices from fruit and veggies and make my son a smoothie that he can grab as he heads out the door for classes that day.



1

This product would be great to have in the dorms too; it does not take up much space and college students can prepare healthy juices or blended smoothies right into the 20-ounce, BPA free personal blending jar to enjoy on the go or for a late night snacks while studying. You can boost the juice and add high protein Greek yogurt, protein powders or natural boosters for a complete snack or meal replacement.

Having this around gives us an fun option to a healthier snack, rather than reaching for a bag of chips or candy bar!

Softsoap's premium liquid hand soap line is available in enticing scents of Peony & Plum, Orchid Petals & Mint Water, and Wild Basil & Lime in a package you would be proud to display on every sink in your home.
