Children Picture Book : Animals Tails Review

While I'm not a huge fan of E-books with my children, this book was pretty cute. The book goes on to describe what movement in an animals tail means. It talked about dog tails, cat tails, cow tails, horse tails and many more. It’s 26 pages long and has lots of photography grade pictures. My favorite was "it is believed that horses will die if their tails are cut"...that may have been a little graphic for my toddlers but informative for me :) You can purchase this e-book on

Petunia Skincare Revitalize Eye Serum With Sea Kelp Review

First, customer service was salon quality. They contacted me to ensure I received it and to see if I had any questions. Wow, when do you get service like that anymore! I like the packaging & container. Very practical and no extra fluff (we've all gotten a product where the actuall serum is like 1/5th the size of the box). There is a very light smell to this product which you'd expect for an eye serum but I've had some that were strong and the scent burnt my eyes. I noticed a slight difference in fine lines by my crows feet in just 1 week. You can purchase this product at

Birchbox versus Ipsy - September 2014

I debate each month about which one of these boxes to cancel. They are both $10 a month which means I pay $20 a month for all these items. While I'm not a huge fan of foil packets and perfume samples there is always ONE awesome item each month I just LOVE. This month, from Birchbox I got the Liz Earle Cleanse & cloth and it's AWESOME. You wipe on the cleanse and run into your skin and just wipe off with hot water on the cloth provided. It is easy and quick and leaves you skin ulta clean without drying it out. From Ipsy, I got the Duet brush...I recently started using a brush to put on shadow and this brush is AWESOME!!! It makes it really easy to add in the extra dark and is a must for smokey eye look.

Overall- Another month with both boxes. LOL

Resist C15 Super Booster Review

I received this product on behalf of Bzzagent. They don't require a blog post but I've tried many of these vitamin c serums and I think this may be the best one yet. The scent is all that great but it did leave a more even tone on my face in 2 days. I moved from the face to my arms since I have a huge cat scratch that I'd really like to lighten up. After a week, I could see a bit of lightening of the scar and hoping by 2 weeks for more improvement.

What makes this product unique?
Resist C15 Super Booster is a concentrated, light-as-water liquid treatment product designed to supercharge your Paula's Choice serum, or it may be used alone. A blend of 15% stabilized vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) at a pH of 3.0, antioxidant vitamin E, ferulic acid, and peptides repairs visible signs of aging and stimulates collagen production for smoother, brighter, and firmer skin.

Vitamin C also helps protect skin from environmental damage as it evens your skin tone. You'll see dramatically younger, healthier, and more radiant skin in weeks!

Who is this product for?
Resist C15 Super Booster is for anyone who wants to boost the results from their Paula's Choice serum or who wants to experience the benefits of vitamin C when combined with other proven anti-aging ingredients. The formula is suitable for all skin types and also appropriate for breakout-prone skin.

I recently got #surfsup box which came with after tan lotion, pain medicine drink, shampoo and conditioner & nail polish. All delux samples except nail polish. No fee’s or shipping costs. I received a few tasks (take a picture of your nails polished and post on twitter) and then a survey link at the end. The more social networking friends you have the higher a score you get. You can increase your score by doing reviews and snaps. Boxes are about 1 every other month.

BzzAgent: Use a link below or message me and I can give you a referral link.
• Full product testing for reviews on websites like Amazon, Walmart or Toysrus. No fee’s or shipping costs. They also might ask you to complete 1 of 5 postings on social media. I’ve received Baby A live ($40) and Little People garage ($40). When I signed up though it took about an hour to complete all the surveys/pulses. You get 1 or 2 a week after but honestly, completing them got me toys which are SWEET! I also got dog food and face cream.

• I’ve gotten gummy vitamins (sample size), Crest Prohealth tooth paste and Hand wash. No fee’s or shipping costs. You just need to complete some tasks like post on FB, tweet & get 10 people to click on a link of an ad for the product. The more you do the higher the score and more you get.

• Sign up, get invites to complete via survey monkey & then get emails with codes to purchase it on Amazon. All you have to do is give amazon feedback. Simple! So far, I’ve gotten phone cases, stylists & plus in charges for dual USB cords to wall or car.

Need a blog- Can be brand new. They post about 10 to 15 new products daily and you just log in and apply. Application is very short for each. I’ve received a hair straighter, face cream, bird house, children’s books, hangers, baking mats & some type of natural supplements. Requirements are simply to write a blog and possibly post on FB, Amazon or Tweet. For each product there is a min amount of facebook & twitter connections. The min is usually 100. You usually get a code to order it via Amazon so if you have Prime, it’s a bonus to get it quicker than anyone else.

• Honestly, I’m not sure how this works. They do a lot of twitter parties but I just keep answering quickhits and it has gotten me nothing!

Amazon James Armstrong:
• This guy has total PMS and is a bit unorganized BUT I’ve gotten supplements, face creams, Ipod holders & chargers. All you have to do is sign up and Opt in when he posts on facebook. He’ll send an amazon link with code and require you confirm you ordered & when you reviewed. If you don’t review, he kicks you out of the group….if you ask too many questions, he kicks you out of the group. Total PMS

Amazing Deals:
• Signed up a month ago- Got an email for a credit card knife but shipping was $5. Not worth it.

Brand Backer:
• Similar to Tomoson but a lot less products to choice from. Just started- nothing yet after a month.

• Their product reviews on Blog & Amazon. They you Amazon codes to get their product for review. Nothing after a month.

• $10 credit when you sign up (and I get one too). Tons of stuff for $10 and you just pay shipping of $2 or $3. I got a couple referrals of $10 which you can’t combine. I’ve spent $18 dollars of my own money but got 2 sweaters, a color changing nail polish, nail soakers & a Frozen “anna” costume. Most of that $18 was shipping costs.

• Got free Snuggle Scents & they add on their products regularly for testing. So far, 20 Pk of Snuggle scents for the washer 

• You get $10 credit to sign up online and another $10 credit when you download the app. It’s second hand nice stuff. $20 bucks off got me a small coach purse and it was pretty nice for like $10 with shipping.

• Signed up but didn’t go anything. You get goodies for blogging, just not sure how good the goodies are 

Veo: (Must download app)
• Can get samples for free. Only able to get 2 samples thus far in 2 weeks and apparently takes 6 weeks to ship.
