I am sure you know someone who would like a fashionable sock delivered every month well I stumbled upon The Sock Club Guys and they do just that. You sign up for one month, three months, six months or one year and the socks get delivered to you. You can cancel at any time as well. I got a pair of the Austin Skyline Socks these are made with cotton, nylon and lycra in the colors of green with green stripes half way up then dark green followed by blue with the Austin scene in it and a purple top. I love colorful socks but you can tell these are designed by a man as they are not feminine for women but never the less very nice socks. To learn more visit https://www.sotmclub.com/ .
My Opinion: Nice socks and very comfortable to wear. Unique as I have never seen socks like yours and I like how colorful they are.
I suffer from severe dry skin mostly in the winter months but can be year round. I recently found Dew Puff these are pure plant fiber sponges. They come in Original, Bamboo Charcoal and Asian Clay. Dew Puff face and body cleanser are 100% plant based using the Konjac Root also known as elephant yam. These arrive very hard but adding water makes them very soft and you can use this for up to 3 months then replace with a new one. Asian Clay helps stimulate skin cells white absorbing impurities below the pore level. Original clean without drying out your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and looking smooth and radiant. Gentle enough for any type of skin - even your baby's skin. Bamboo Charcoal contains activated carbon and minerals to help prevent breakouts, plus antioxidants to fight acne-causing bacteria.
Clean George was developed by Miller for her dad as when he had lung cancer was introduced to naturopathic and alternative healing. I got to review for them Skin Stick which comes in a tube made with natural lemon essential oils and can be used from head to toe for dry skin, cuticles, hair tamer and more. This is recyclable container, fragrance free, cruelty free, paraben free, natural ingredients and responsible supplier. Chill Out was the next one I got which can be used for relaxation to calm down from stress this can be used all over the body as well made with lavender essential oils. Stuffed up is the last one I got the name says it all made with Eucalyptus oils and helps to breath thru your nose that became stuffed from a cold or maybe allergies. Both parents and adults can use this too. To learn more visit http://www.cleangeorge.com/ . They also have Boo Boos and Bites.
My Opinion: I am always on the lookout for natural products as I am curious of that lifestyle change. I live these products and feel they work well and the container is even recyclable.
Recently Barney Butter sent me a few sample packs to review and I am not sure if you have ever had Barney Butter but it is yummy! This is almond butter that is organic, Non-GMO, Gluten Free and more. They are manufactured at a peanut free facility so if you have a peanut allergy you can feel better about buying this. I got 2 Smooth and 1 Vanilla Espresso. I have to say I love vanilla so I was so excited to try that one and I did on a bagel and it was so taste with tons of espresso in which I could see, this was a great pick me up for the afternoon rush I needed. Besides what I got they have Coco+Coconut, Bare, Raw+Chia and more visit http://www.barneybutter.com/products to see them all.
My Opinion: I love them and great little packets to take anywhere for a protein snack and pick me up.
I am a huge fan of Ozeri and they have a fan out called Brezza III this fan is 10 inch deck fan that is dual oscillating. This fan is ultra quiet, 4 speeds and pivots at a 90 degree angle meaning it goes up and down to help cool the room off a lot quicker. Some other features it has is a remote control with a 4 hour timer. This fan is stylish yet small enough to cool off any entire room with a petite fan.
My Opinion: I love this fan it will be keeping me cool in my bedroom at night yet if I wanted to take it to work or on a camping trip it could go along easily as it is compact. I have never had a fan with a remote control so this is nice in the middle of the night if I get too cool just turn it down or set a timer to automatically shut off.
Good Buddy Notes is a website with baby, kids, greeting cards, personalized gifts and more with art by Shelley Dieterichs who has won numerous awards for her work with illustrations in children’s books and other educational materials. I got to review the Babycakes dress which comes in long or short sleeves and 3 months up to 6T. This dress is in the color white with babycakes written across the front and the pockets have a sunflower pattern and the other has pink/white checkered pattern and they are not real pockets which also makes this completely adorable. To learn more visit http://www.goodbuddynotes.com/ .
The only thing I would change is make the dresses come in more colors besides white since it will get dirty easily.
If you have been following my blog you know about Winning Moves and how they have great board games you played as a kid and more to play with your kids as well. They now have Splash Pals which are used in the bath tub to make it fun or you can use these in a pool for more entertainment. I got Splash Jack which a deck of floating cards which you can play any card game like War, Slap Jack, Go Fish and so much more. The next one I got was Splash Pals which you have three piles one heads, one legs and last body you then combine them to matching, memory, numbers or create a person with any body combination. Splash Jack Royal which can be poker in the hot tub, solitaire and more. Splashanimals which animal parts will you match up the same, two different bodies or reading skill use. Touring this card game is the original auto race game the object of the game is to complete a trip based on the mile card you drew but look out your opponents will be looking to give you a flat tire and accidents.
My Opinion: These are great and the splash cards are so lightweight and I like the idea that they float. This will make a kids bath time fun and they will want to take a bath and this summer when you go to the beach everyday this will cure the boredom they may feel as well. They Splash Royal cards are great for adults to play poker in the hot tub or pool. To learn more visit http://winning-moves.com/games/splash_cards.asp

Harvey Prince makes a line of perfumes made with only the finest ingredients with no chemicals found in any of the perfumes. New for spring is Cherie Blossoms which can be new beginnings, a new day and of course a sign of spring in Japanese culture. You could go down to Washington D.C. and see all the cherry blossom trees in bloom what a sight that must be. This perfume has sweet, soft hints of Somet Sakura mingle with pink grapefruit and vanilla. Also add a cool musk for sophistication.
My Opinion: When I first smelt it I could smell the musk before knowing it had musk in it. It is an interesting scent. I am not much of a musk person but know this one my mom will love as she wears it a lot.

I looked forward every day to reading these and since there are 365 for the whole year I can read them over and over again every year.

These packets you just mix with water and are made with natural nutrients found in nature, natural flavors and colors. If you know about coconut water you know it helps hydrate you, has less sugar and electrolytes. They also keep you going more than a sugary sports drink.

With today being the first day of spring so is the anticipated arrival of the new limited edition Purex Fabulously Fresh Crystals. I could not wait to try these as I had laundry to do and I like the smell of lilies and spring in general. But you would not know it was spring here with all the snow that fell last night so I am happy to stay indoors and creat my own spring escape. I have hard water were I live and at times it can be smelly and I do not know why so I like to use these crystals on towels and clothes I wear daily as I like the feeling of being fresh and clean. These crystals are the color of lime green and can be used to freshen your car as well just put a bunch in a sandwich bag and pierce little holes in it and sit anywhere in your car, I have a spot on the other side of my steering wheel so I put mine there.
