Really Comfortable Yoga Pants With Pockets!!

Snag a pair here at:

These yoga pants are so stretchy and comfortable I would wear them everyday if I could. What I love most about them is that they have pockets. The pockets are big enough to keep my keys and cell phone in when I'm out for a walk. I'm 5'4" tall and 155 pounds so I got a medium and they fit me perfectly except for being a little long. Its okay though I don't mind the little extra length. These yoga pants hold their shape and the fabric doesn't pill or fade in the wash. I just can't get over how comfortable these pants are. I not only wear them when I exercise but also I wear them when I go shopping, to the salon, grocery store, and all sorts of other places. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased review. 

These Candles Have A Relaxing Scent & They Match Any Home Decor 

These candles have a relaxing scent of black amber and sandalwood notes. They are votive sized and come in a box of 24. They are also long burning and the wicks don't produce hardly any soot. They are long burning too each votive averages 14-16 hours. I'm using some of mine as part of my votive display on my entertainment center. They have a relaxing fragrance that smells up my entire living room.

Make Restaurant Quality French Fries At Home With The KUUK Cutter 

This fry cutter is awesome. The biggest reason why I used to never make fresh cut french fries at home was I hated sitting there cutting potatoes into strips. I could never get them all the same size and thickness and I usually ended up cutting my finger. This fry cutter is fun to use and all the fries come out the same size and thickness. I love how it locks onto the kitchen counter so it doesn't move around on the counter while I'm using it. There's 2 different sized blades so it makes either thick or thinner fries. It is also really easy to clean. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased review.

Enjoy These Limited Edition
 Summer Scents 
From Softsoap 
Before They're Gone Like Summer 

Transport Yourself to the 
Beaches of Brazil
I must admit I'm a big lover of summer and all things summer. In the summer I love eating all the summer foods like watermelon, coconut, cucumber, melon, and the rest. Not only do I love the taste but I love the scent of fresh coconut, cucumber, and the rest. I usually buy lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash with these scents all year round. Its known that hair care products with these ingredients in them especially coconut help smooth and moisturize your hair so I was excited to try these body washes out and see how they do on my skin. The 2 that Colgate-Palmolive sent me to try are the Softsoap Coconut Splash and Summer Breeze scents. They both came in a generous sized 18 oz bottles so I have a hefty supply to try out. I should also mention these are available now until September 2016 and can be found at most grocery and retail stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, Meijer, and more. They retail for around $2.99 a bottle. 

First thing I noticed when I flipped up their caps was they both smell great! The Softsoap Coconut Splash smells just like fresh coconut as you would expect. The Softsoap Summer Breeze was a fruity melon smell with hints of cucumber so to me it smells very fruity and fresh like summer. Both body washes aren't watery and I didn't need to use a bunch in the shower to get a nice lather going on my washcloth or body poof. I have combination skin and by that I mean I have very oily skin on my face and really dry skin on my arms and legs. It can be a real pain and almost impossible to find soap that moisturizes my dry skin areas and doesn't cause pimple break outs in my oily areas. I'm also dealing with a bad case of dry, itchy skin on my legs leftover from winter. I also should mention I take 2 showers a day to keep my oily skin in check and avoid breakouts.  With all that to deal with I decided to give these Softsoap body washes a try and see what they could do for me. 

I've been using both the Softsoap body washes I received free to test out from Colgate-Palmolive for 2 weeks now using them twice a day every time I showered. I rotate the scents back and forth and I honestly can't pick which one I love more. They both smell really good and the scent stays with me for hours after I shower. I can still smell it on my skin which is one of the things I love about these. If I use a facial scrub on my face before I can use these on my face as well as the rest of my body without having any breakouts. The dry skin areas on my fingers (cuticle areas), knees, elbow, feet, and legs are way less dry and some are almost completely gone. My skin feels softer and smoother way more so than when I wash with bar soap. My skin doesn't feel heavy, greasy, or weighted down after I use the Softsoap body washes either. I've tried other brands of body washes and some made my skin feel greasy and weighted down and I didn't like that feeling. I get out of the shower and my skin feels clean, soft, smells like coconuts, or tropical fruits (depending on the scent I use), and I feel clean and refreshed. That's just what I expect to feel when I get out of the shower. I've also noticed since I started using these Softsoap body washes is shaving has become so much easier. I no longer get the dreaded and painful nicks and cuts on my legs when I shave. The razor glides more smoothly on my skin. I used to almost always cut myself around my knees because the skin was drier there. I'm happy to report my knees are no longer cut up now when I shave!

My overall opinion of the Softsoap Summer Breeze and Coconut Splash body washes that I received from Colgate-Palmolive are spectacular! I will definitely be stocking up on these before these scents go away in September. I've already found both scents at the Wal-Mart that I shop at regularly. Hopefully Softsoap will decide to make these two scents a permanent in their line or decide to bring them back every summer.

Day of the Dead Inspired Pillow Cover 

I've always been a fan of the Day of the Dead and sugar skull artwork and now I have a beautiful pillow cover to show off. It is vert detailed in the print. The material that makes the pillow cover is soft but strong and durable so it holds up against two dogs that love to lay on pillows. There's a zipper that unzips so you can add the pillow too. It looks great in my bedroom with the black and red colors I've decorated with already. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my unbiased review.

Bamboo Bread Box With 
Cutting Board Lid 
from: #CleanDezign

This bread box is nice and roomy and very well made. It also comes with a lid that doubles as a cutting board which makes it a great space saver especially for small kitchens like mine. I have very little counter space in my kitchen so I decided to use this box as a storage container for crackers, cookies, and snacks in my pantry. Its roomy and now instead of having a big mess of boxes and bags in my pantry and not being able to see what I've got its now neat and tidy. I just grab the box now and open it on the counter and grab out what I need. And I have a lot more room in my pantry now without all the boxes piled up from crackers and cookies. And if I need a cutting board to chop veggies or other foods I can easily grab it out the pantry. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased review.

Great For Seed Starting Or Makes A Great Heat Mat For 
My 2 Leopard Geckos 

This is a very well made seedling heat mat that I'm using as a heat mat for my 2 leopard geckos. It fits perfectly under the 10 gallon aquarium that I use to house both my geckos. What I like best about this mat is it comes with a heat shield to go under the mat that keeps the heat off the surface you keep the mat on and channels the heat upward where you want it. It keeps my geckos at 84-86 degrees during the day and 78-80 degrees at night. These are perfect conditions for the geckos and best of all I don't have to mess with a gauge to turn up and down like with a reptile mat. Reptile mats also don't come with the heat shield either. This grower's mat also has a nice long cord so I have no trouble reaching the wall outlet either. And the aquarium sits flat on the mat and doesn't rock or slide around.

Real Working Whiskey Barrel Handmade 
from: American Golden Oak

This barrel is so cute and best  of all it functions as a real barrel for whiskey and other spirits. Its handmade and the quality is amazing you can definitely tell great care was taken when this barrel was made. It looks, feels, and functions just like a real distillery barrel but at a smaller 2 liter size. I purchased a bottle of whiskey the 750 ml size and all of it fit inside the barrel. I love how the barrel is charred on the inside you can smell the char when you open it to add spirits. I've had the whiskey inside the barrel for several days now and already I can open up the barrel and smell the difference and I can't wait to try it in a few weeks. The barrel has a dispenser on the side so I can enjoy a glass of whiskey from it without any stress or mess. The barrel sits on a cute handmade stand as well and the barrel doesn't leak a drop.

These Pants Fit So Comfy & Are Perfect For Casual or Dress Wear

These pants fit so comfy and are great for casual or dress wear. I am a size 8 in jeans but I decided to size up in case these pants ran small and I'm glad I did. They are a little loose but that is how I like to wear my pants and in the wash they may shrink. The pants are really well made and the 2 button closure with a zipper so they are comfortable around my waist. I'm 5'5" tall and these pants end right at my ankles so they aren't too long so I won't need to shorten them. These pants are lined on the inside but are really lightweight and comfortable to wear even in summer. I've washed and dried these twice already in the machine and the color hasn't faded and the length did not shrink and I'm only noticing very very slight shrinkage around the waist.
