Skindinavia Review


Where I live in California, summers get really hot.  Most summer days are in the 100's and we feel like we're melting.  It isn't easy being a girl in the summer, especially when you have to blow dry your hair and put on makeup.   Going out in the heat leaves my hair frizzy and makes my makeup melt and look shiny.

I was recently asked to review Skindinavia, a makeup finish.  You spray it on to set your makeup and it prevents it from coming off, so you  won't need any touch ups.  I've never used a makeup finish before, so I definetely wanted to try it. 
"Skindinavia's patented Temperature control Technology® prevents makeup from melting, drying out, becoming shiny, or creasing.  Skindinavia's makeup finishing sprays have been used during Lady Gaga and Britney Spear's tours, and keeps makeup lasting for 16+ hours."
Using Skindinavia is super easy.  You apply it after putting on your makeup but before using mascara.  Spray 2-4 times in an "X" and "T" formation.  It's a light mist and it didn't smudge or mess up my makeup.  I like that there wasn't a scent.

I tested Skindinavia on a day when I had to run errands in the heat and be at a friends party later in the evening.  I knew I wouldn't have time to fix my makeup before the party so I was counting on Skindinavia to work.   I didn't leave my friends party until after 11 pm and all of my makeup was still on and in place!  I wish I would have taken a picture but I was so busy I forgot.  I didn't need to reapply any foundation and my makeup didn't look shiny.  Skindinavia works great!  It really did keep my makeup on for hours. 

Where to buy: You can purchase Skindinavia on their website.

Tooth Fairy 2 Review!

Summary:  Larry Guthrie is a fun-loving dreamer with a serious mission: win back the love of his life before she makes a terrible mistake and marries the wrong man!  In his attempt to get back on his long lost love’s good side, Larry visits the school where she works and make’s a horrible mistake…  He accidentally tells a child that the Tooth Fairy is just a myth.  Crushing the child’s dreams sets off a chain of events that are far more than Larry bargained for including being  “sentenced” to become a Tooth Fairy or face  having his memories erased for good…PLUS losing any chance of getting back the girl of his dreams!

Review:

My son loved the Tooth Fairy 2.  He actually watched it 3 times before I got the chance to watch it, then he watched it again with me!  My husband and I enjoyed watching the movie too.  There's lots of funny scenes and jokes, that kept us adults entertained along with the kids.  Everyone's favorite scene is when Larry is at the fancy dinner party and suddenly his outfit changes into the pink tooth fairy tutu! 

It's nice to be able to watch a movie with the kids and not be bored.  I really enjoy movies that are clean and family oriented.  The Tooth Fairy 2 is perfect for a family movie night!

You can purchase the Tooth Fairy 2 on DVD & Blu-Ray at www.FOXCONNECT.com

The Screaming O Studio Collection Review and Giveaway!!!

My husband and I have a pretty good relationship.  We enjoy spending time together and having fun.  I'm pretty open minded and I like "spicing" up our marriage.  So when I was asked to review The Screaming O Studio Collection, a discreet line of adult toys, I JUMPED on it!  Seriously these adult toys are like no other, they are disguised as a high end make up line.  Every piece from the collection looks like real make up!  I could leave them out on my dresser and nobody would suspect a thing.

The Screaming O Studio Collection:
  • Mascara  Vibe
  • Lipstick Vibe
  • Brush Vibe
  • Warming Balm
  • Cooling Balm
  • Climax Gloss
  • Compact
I was super excited to receive my box of goodies, and when it arrived I was not disappointed.  To my surprise and HAPPINESS, I received the entire collection!  The lipstick, brush, and mascara are so cool, because they look real.  The collection also has a make up purse to store all your products.  I really like the concept of disguising the products as make up.  The entire set is really beautiful and classy.
By far the lipstick is my favorite!  Not only does it look like a real lipstick, but it does it's job VERY well.  Along with the lipstick, I used the OGloss and the results were intense.
The Warming and Cooling Balm are fun to play with too!     

I love how stylish and girly The Screaming O Studio Collection looks.  It's discreet and nothing looks embarrassing. 

Where to Buy:  Products from the collection range from $9 to $35 and can be ordered from The Screaming O website.

One very LUCKY Mommy Loves Giveaways reader will a prize pack containing pieces from The Screaming O Studio Collection!

Welch's Filled Licorice Review!

 
It's summer and the kids are on vacation.  Time to pack snacks for picnics!  I was recently sent some Welch's Filled Licorice for review.  Kids like licorice and it's a great snack for long car rides. 
 
Welch’s Filled Licorice combines a soft licorice outside with a flavorful filling inside.  The unique jelly filling is made with real fruit juice and fruit pectin to deliver real fruit flavors. This new one-of-a-kind licorice treat is a blend of soft and chewy textures with a bold, real fruit filling.   

I received a pack of each flavor, Concord Grape and Strawberry. Since there's just the four of us in our little family, I decided to take the Welch's Filled Licorice over to my mom's house, where we could share with everyone else.  Plus, I'd be able to get more opinions on which flavor was the best!
For fun we took a vote on which flavor we liked best.  Everyone liked both flavors, but we also had a favorite out of the two.  The grape licorice had a more bold and flavorful taste compared to the strawberry, and the grape licorice ended up with the winning vote.  However, my son and I prefer anything strawberry flavor!  So it's all a matter of perference.
Everyone liked the Welch's Filled Licorice.  They have a smooth outside texture, with a nice jelly filling.  They're a great snack for both kids and adults.

Office Depot Foundation Donates 400,000 Sackpacks this Year

 
Every day, millions of kids carry their stuff to school in plastic grocery bags because they can’t afford a backpack.  One innovative way to tackle this problem is to put free backpacks or sackpacks into the hands of children who need them the most.  Suddenly, they’re just like other kids.  Suddenly, they have hope.
During the past 11 years, the Office Depot Foundation has provided more than 2.5 million backpacks to deserving children in local communities across North America and as far away as China through its National Backpack Program.  
The Foundation will mark the 12th anniversary of the program this year by giving away approximately 400,000 colorful new sackpacks containing essential school supplies – the most it has ever donated in a single year.  But while these numbers are very large, the sackpacks make an impact on a singular level − one child at a time.

What a great cause!  I'm glad to see that Office Depot is giving back to local communities.
