SoapSox Bath Scrub: Hunter the Gator Review

SoapSox Bath Scrub: Hunter The Gator Review & Giveaway

When I was young I loved bathes, and I loved playing in the bathtub. I would pretend that my toys were a town, and the washcloth was an evil blanket meant to cover the world from the sun. I started this like with an imagination, and as I aged and got older my imagination changed but the fun of bath time did not.

A couple of years ago I was watching Shark Tank, as I often do, and saw these super cute character wash cloths for kids. My first thought at the time was that I wish they had those when I was a kid and wondered why it had taken to long to bring something like this to market. Since that day I have not forgotten about that company, and when I recently received an opportunity to get a SoapSox for myself, I was excited.

There is nothing like the spa experience, the feeling of being freshed and ready for what ever comes next. The downside to spa days is the cost, often times they are expensive and once they are over, they are over.

One of the best gift I ever received was a “spa at home kit” which brought the spa experience home. I love trying new spa treatments, and giving myself an excuse to decompress  without feeling guilty.  When I received an email about a traditional Moroccan Home Spa Kit from Zakia’s Morocco, I knew I wanted to give it a try.

Orivet: Feline DNA Testing Review

Orivet: Feline DNA Testing Review & a Giveaway

There is no doubt that Maggee chose us, when we went into the room to “get to know”: her she jumped in my lap and then my husbands. We took that as a very definite move towards he choosing us.

Not a lot was known about our girl, we know she was shuttled between homes due to issues beyond her control, and had a litter of kittens. We both love our girl so much, we want to know more about her including her health and hereditary things that can affect her.

When I had the opportunity to get her DNA tested by Orivet I was super excited to glean a little more about a creature that I really know nothing about.

Diamond Dotz Diamond Embroidery Facet Art Kit: Sweet Treats Review + a Giveaway

I have always been into crafting and creating something that I can add to my home with pride knowing I am the one who created the item. Generally I have stuck to a couple crafts including knitting, cross stitching and regular stitching, latch hook and scrapbooking.

A couple of months ago I was surfing around Instagram and saw a new type of craft available, called Diamond Dotz. The basic idea was the there was a group of symbols that correlated to a number and color of dotz. Once placed on the adhesive surface they would stick and then together create a beautiful image.The technique is refered to as a Diamond Facet Art Kit
