Amazon Rain Exfoliator Review and Giveaway!

Ever since I've had my baby, I have no idea what's going on with my face. Sometimes it's so dry it has small patches, then it's oily with pimples, and then sometimes it's in between. I really didn't know what kind of product to use, but I knew that my face routine needed an exfoliator.

I recently came across the Amazon Rain skin care collection and knew I had to try it out. All the ingredients are organic and wild-harvested. These products have zero additives, chemicals, GMO, Gluten, colors. All come in natural tone, color, and smell.

I received Amazon Rain's Crystal exfoliator for review. The bottle is a little small, but you don't need to use very much, so it will last a while. I was really surprised to see that the crystal exfoliator was brown like mud, but then again it is from the Amazon! You can feel the little crystals and the exfoliator leaves a nice cooling sensation that wakes up your skin. My face felt extremely soft and smooth after using it. I like the exfoliator and plan to continue using it.

This giveaway is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness month. Skin care is a huge part of our overall health, and it does matter what we put on it, and how much toxicity the body and its organs accumulate during their lifetime. That is why the byline for all Amazon Rain skin care products is Deeper Than Beauty. Amazon Rain products feed the body, skin, internal systems to bring out the beauty from within.

Not only do I like the Amazon Rain exfoliator, I like that every single sale all year round supports two movements: ACEER and Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center. ACEER-Nonprofit The Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Resources.

The first 50 people purchasing any of the Amazon Rain products from this campaign, will receive free gifts:
  1. Olivia Newton-John, who beat her own breast cancer, has announced that she'll send a personally signed LIV Aid for breast cancer prevention in your monthly self-examination routine. This aid alone retails for $19.95.
  2. FlaxUSA and it's Founder Stephanie Stober will donate Flax Sprinkles full of Omega-3, Lignans, Protein and Fiber.
  3. Hy-Jean Corporation and its Founder Laura Stearn will donate her unique and feminine products-Pantzies!
  4. The Coconut World and its Founder SaraJean Cameranesi will donate her amazing Coconut Sugar with Glycemic Index of 35! Eating it is like almost drinking water nowadays!
To buy: You can purchase Amazon Rain products with a 42% discount here!

One lucky Mommy Loves Giveaways reader will win a bottle of Amazon Rain's Crystal Exfoliator!

Nutrisystem Weigh In Week 12

I've had a crazy hectic week. Yesterday was my son's birthday, so all week I've been running around getting his party ready, on top of work, housework, homework, and sports. I was stressed out and didn't stick to my Nutrisystem program very well. I ate most of my Nutrisystem meals...but I also cheated a lot. I was BAD.
HOW BAD??

I had french fries when we took my son to see Toy Story 3 on ice. I had pizza and cake at his party. I had Denny's on the day of his actual birthday AND Oreo ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins....FREAKIN' DELICIOUS! But as you can see I was BAD, BAD, BAD! So I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to see I lost 0.5 pound this week.

Weight Loss:
Week 1 -----4 pounds lost
Week 2-----0 pounds lost
Week 3-----4 pounds lost
Week 4-----2 pounds lost
Week 5---- +1 pound gained
Week 6-----4 pounds lost
Week 7-----2 pounds lost
Week 8-----0 pounds lost
Week 9-----1.5 pounds lost
Week 10-----2 pounds lost
Week 11-----2 pounds lost
Week 12-----0.5 pounds lost

Total Pounds Lost: 21!!

Ok, so normally I would be hoping to lose more than 0.5 in a week, but after having such a bad week, I'm relieved I lost anything!

Look what I got....


NutriBear Buddies!

This week I received my second NutriBear! His name is Commitment Bear. What a great name, since commitment is a huge part of weight loss. I'm so ready to get back on track and stay committed!!!

Disney On Ice Toys Story 3 in Bakersfield!


I had a great time tonight! My family and I were invited to see Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 in Bakersfield and we really enjoyed it. Not only did we get to see all the gang from Toy Story 3 but Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck also made an appearance.

Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 is very upbeat with lots of music. The kids loved it. I was trying to take pictures of them but they wouldn't take their eyes off the show to pose for the camera.
My favorite part of the show was when Barbie came out. She danced to "Barbie Girl" and "Girl's Just Want to have Fun." I have to admit I felt like a little girl watching. I loved Barbie in Toy Story 3 and she rocked the show on Ice! She was ditsy and sassy, and so much fun to watch.

I also liked the scene when the toys met the kids from Sunnyside Daycare for the first time. I was curious about how they were going to pull it off, considering that the "toys" are life-size. Well they pulled it off...but I'm not going to tell you how! That's a surprise you're going to have to see for yourself, but I thought it was pretty cool how they portrayed the scene.
If you're like my husband and I who grew up watching Toy Story you'll like the end. I didn't expect to get emotional, since the show was so lively and upbeat, but at the end when Andy came out and talked about each toy, I actually felt sad.

Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 was a hit with my family. I know my boys enjoyed it!

Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 is in Bakersfield, CA all weekend.

When: Friday, October 21- 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, October 22- 11:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m., & 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, October 23- 1:00 p.m. & 5:00 p.m.

Where: Rabobank Arena- 1001 Truxton Ave., Bakersfield, CA

Tickets: Ticket price levels are $16, $20, $30 (VIP) and $45 (Front Row). Tickets are available online at Ticketmaster.com, by calling 800-745-3000 or at the venue Box Office.

Disclaimer: I received tickets to the show for review purposes only. No monetary compensation was given and all opinions are my own.

Weight Loss:
Week 1 -----4 pounds lost
Week 2-----0 pounds lost

Right now Nutrisystem is having a Fall Sale with their lowest prices of the year. It's the perfect time to get on Nutrisystem, especially if you have to squeeze into a dress for the holidays. I know this year I won't be hiding from the camera during Christmas pictures!

Modify Watches Review and Giveaway!

I love how watches can be fashion accessories. Of course a watch on it's own is practical for keeping time, but being able to customize a watch to your preference is pretty cool.

With Modify Watches, you can create a perfect watch just for you. Modify Watches are unique because you can switch any watch face and strap. Making it easy to mix and match and make your own fun combinations.
I was able to create my own Modify Watch to review and I chose the green face and green strap. Green is my son's favorite color, so whenever green is an option, I pick it! The folks from Modify Watches were kind enough to send me an extra strap (in black) so that I could "Modify" my watch. Now I have a watch that can be modified into two different looks!

The straps are flexible and and soft. They also fit men and women, as well as kids. My soon to be 8-year-old loves wearing it (he's wearing it right now!). The watch has a large face, which gives it a fun look. I love the bright colors of faces and straps that Modify Watches offers. I also like how easy their website is to use.

I'm digging my new watch. It's bright and fun and with the holidays just around the corner a Modify Watch would make a cool gift for anyone!

Where to buy: Need a cool new watch? Check out Modify Watches!

One lucky winner will win a Modify Watch of their own!

To Win:

Mandatory entry: Visit Modify Watches and tell me which combination you would pick if you win AND follow Mommy Loves Giveaways publicly on Google Friend Connect. Make sure to leave a comment letting me know you follow along with your email.

Snuggy Baby Ring Sling Review and Giveaway


When Max was a baby, I always wanted to get a sling, but for some reason I never got around to finding one. During my pregnancy with Caroline, I knew that this time, I was definitely going to get some kind of sling or wrap, because I knew I had a toddler to chase around, and wearing the baby seemed like the easiest way to keep everyone happy. SnuggyBaby sent me the Sparrow Linen Banded Ring Sling to try out.


I was still pregnant when my sling came in the mail, and I have to admit that I was a little intimidated. Luckily, SnuggyBaby includes an instructional dvd on how to wear your sling. Finally, Caroline was home, and I was ready to try to wear her. The first few times, I really didn't feel confident in my positioning - it seemed like she wasn't happy and I didn't think she felt very secure. (Please excuse the dirty hair and bags under my eyes!)



After a little more practice, I finally got more comfortable with the sling, and I love it! I have even breastfed in the sling! It's so much easier to chase after Max, and get things done around the house, and Caroline stays happy because she is being snuggled nonstop. It's awesome!




This weekend I wore Caroline in the ring sling in public, for the first time. We went to an Oktoberfest and the pumpkin patch. I brought the stroller, and grabbed the sling, just in case. I actually preferred the sling because it kept Caroline from fussing - she was asleep instantly. It was easier to maneuver through the crowds, and I was still able to keep up with Max. I got lots of comments from many people. Babywearing isn't as common where I live, but I really have been preaching about the benefits for sure. I've only been babywearing for a few weeks, but SnuggyBaby has made me a believer! I'm looking forward to trying out the different types of holds as my baby grows!



SnuggyBaby also has these adorable doll slings. If you have a young child, you know that whatever Mommy is doing, they want to do too. And little girls LOVE to play Mommy with their dolls. These would make a really great Christmas gift for a little girl!



SnuggyBaby also carries Baby Wraps, if you are looking for a different type of carrier. I almost chose this type to review, but went with the sling. The Baby Wrap is also completely adjustable (like the ring sling) so that one size fits all, and is made with a more supportive fabric than other wraps.



SnuggyBaby is also very popular for their stylish wet bags. Made with waterproof linings, they are the perfect way to contain those inevitable messes our sweet babies (and children and husbands) make. You can throw the bag into the laundry right along with the dirty clothes or cloth diapers. Even if you don't have small children, the easy cleanup makes them perfect for makeup bags or snack bags.

I have some exciting news! One lucky MLG reader will win a $75 gift certificate to SnuggyBaby that you can spend on anything in the store! To enter, just head over to www.snuggybaby.com , look around, come back and tell me what you would buy with your gift certificate! (mandatory entry) What's your favorite fabric? Are you going to pick a sling or a wrap? Maybe a few wet bags? I'm dying to know!

Nutrisystem Week Weigh In #10

It's weigh in time again. It's been 10 weeks since I've started the Nutrisystem program and this week I lost 2 pounds! I'm only 1.5 pounds away from hitting the 20 pound mark and I'm crossing my fingers it happens this week!! I know that as long as I stick to the program, hitting the 20 pound mark this week is very possible!

Weight Loss:
Week 1 -----4 pounds lost
Week 2-----0 pounds lost
Week 3-----4 pounds lost
Week 4-----2 pounds lost
Week 5---- +1 pound gained
Week 6-----4 pounds lost
Week 7-----2 pounds lost
Week 8-----0 pounds lost
Week 9-----1.5 pounds lost
Week 10-----2 pounds lost

Total Pounds Lost: 18.5

I have another non-scale victory I'd like to share with you. When I first started Nutrisystem in August, I bought myself two pairs of jeans. They were snug, and I loved the way they looked on my booty. Two months later, and I LITERALLY have to keep pulling them up because they just keep sliding down my butt! Seriously! I've got some hips on me so I'm not use to having pants work there way down. My pants don't look as great on me as they did when I bought them. They now sag on my butt...not cute. But I'm not complaining! Sometimes it's hard to notice the weight loss, but when you're clothes start to get loose, there's no denying it! My booty's shrinking!!!
