Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape Collection

Thank you to Rainbow Honey for sending me three of the new collection. All opinions are my own
 
I’m super excited to share with you a sneak peek of 3 upcoming Rainbow Honey nail polishes from their Summer Mixtape collection! This collection includes 12 new cremes, shimmers and glitters which will be available on 7/18. You can purchase them from RAINBOW HONEY using the code MIXTAPE20, which will get you 20% off your next order thru 8/31/14.
 

I received three lovely colors. 2 from side A and one from Side B. They all look great and in normal Rainbow Honey fashion, outshine the rest!


From Side A, here is Elevate! This is a great clear with lots of pastel glitter. It looks perfect on plain nails or over any color.
 


Another favorite from side A is I Wanna Get Better. This is a lovely peachy/orange color with dark peach glitter and yellow stars. I actually wore this recently over the next color and they paired up perfectly.

 
From Side B, Control! This is a gorgeous pink that does great in 2 coats. It is more fuchsia than pink but a perfect color.
 
Here’s the complete line up from the Summer Mixtape collection -

Side A
I Wanna Get Better – I didn’t know I was lonely ‘til I saw this peachy crelly full of bright and neon glitters
Work It Out – I know we debate it, but this coral is the perfect summer staple
Stolen Dance – We shouldn’t talk about it, but this pale kiwi green will entice you with its gold and violet shimmer
Best Friend – Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white…and in neon glitter!
Elevate – Time to pick up this Ibiza-meets-New-Wave blend of glitters and celebrate!
One Minute More – The sun will definitely shine on your nails with this sparkling lemon yellow
 
Side B
Waves – At least we made some waves with this sparkling, glass-flecked turquoise
Shark Attack – This glittery blue jelly is full of shark fins and that’s just what I believe in!
Night Sky – Let this mix of stars, moons, and shimmery glitters be the fire in your eyes
Lanterns – Light your way with this luminescent blend of iridescent and translucent glitters
Fall In Love – Fall into this cool toned crimson red jelly with sparks of blue iridescence
Control – Nothing stays around too long, so wear this hot shimmering fuchsia while the days are still long
 
So what do you think?
 
 

Fancy Mystery Box

Thank you Fancy for sending me a mystery box. All opinions are my own
 

Fancy Mystery Box
Cost: Small: $10, Medium $20, Large: $20 (An additional shipping fee of $7.95/box applies).
Ships To: Worldwide.  Additional shipping costs apply to shipments outside of the US.


 I wasn’t totally excited about it, but I wasn’t disappointed at all either.  Fancy Mystery Boxes do not contain information cards, but my box contained the following items:

 
Satechi 4 USBStrip: ($8) Satechi ST-UHS4P USB 2.0 Hub adds four USB ports to your PC or Mac, allowing you to connect USB devices such as digital cameras, phones, external hard drives, flash drives, and printers without breaking the bank.  It's ok but I have plenty of these already lying around.


Solemates High Heeler: ($10) Say goodbye to sinking and getting stuck in grass or any other shoe trap nature throws our way with High Heel Protectors. Now, these again are of no use because I don't wear high heels.

 
TeaSub: ($?) Put in your loose tea then hang this cutie from the side of your glass. It is extremely cute and I will get use out of this.


A book about Roommates. From the good to the bad to the ugly. I could not find a link for it on their website. ($?)


A skull picture. Looks like little arcade creature's. I like the picture but again, this will be something I will gift.
 
I love Fancy Mystery Boxes because you just don’t know what you will get.  It could be anything!
 
 If you are interested in buying one, go here and search for “Mystery” and you will see them.  The drop down menu will let you pick the size of the box (Small, Medium or Large)  you want and Men’s or Women’s.

Keshima Beauty Brushes Review

Thank you Keshima for sending me a set of brushes to review. All opinions are my own
 
 
Keshima™ Professional Makeup Brushes are made from either cruelty free natural animal hair or synthetic hair - for each brush type, we have chosen the BEST SUITED and HIGHEST QUALITY bristle materials - soft yet dense, comfortable on your face and non-irritating.

Each Keshima™ brush undergoes a 7-STEP PROCESS during manufacture to PREVENT SHEDDING  

 
This is a great brush set, you get a nice variety for the price. I love this carrying case as well. I will be honest and say that I have used the eyeshadow brushes a lot more than the face brushes. The face brushes are good, but I love a good eye brush They are soft, and after washing them I did not notice any shedding. Which is a nice benefit when you get affordable brushes like these. As a brush hoarder I love finding great brushes that don't break the bank.

Purex Insiders – Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango

Big thanks to purexinsiders.com and Dial for the coconut water refreshing mango bodywash to review
 
1136
 
DialⓇ Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash is one of the newest members of the DialⓇ Coconut Water family. It contains coconut water and refreshing mango for a clean, healthy, and hydrated feeling.  Coconut water is a leading trend known to be rich in antioxidants and electrolytes that help provide replenishing hydration.  Mango is known for being nutrient rich and adds a touch of tropical freshness.   Let the fresh hints of green coconut and tropical mango will whisk you away to a distant island without ever leaving the shower.  This product is also available in bar soap form and as a foaming antibacterial hand wash.
 
I love the smell of the Mango Body Wash. It is a little thick but that is how I like it. The scent last for about 30 mins after my shower which is great! It is intoxicating!
 
You can find out more about the product on the Dial Soap website and also check them out on their Facebook page

Shoe Along Hands Free Shoe Bag Review

Thank you Shoe Along for allowing me to review the product mentioned below. All opinions are my own
 
Shoe Along was created to give women a better, more stylish way to carry their second pair of shoes. Made with a soft, stretchy, easy to clean, nylon-lined, neoprene fabric the Shoe Along shoe bag gives women of all ages the ability to travel in comfort but arrive in style.
 

I received the Sassy Zebra Shoe Along for review. First, I love the quality of the material. It is made from a soft, stretchy, neoprene fabric that is water resistant, machine washable. This is perfect for us as we got to the water park a lot. So, I am able to put the kids sandals in the bag while we are there.

 
With easy close magnetic snaps, it slips effortlessly over the strap of your own handbag and comes in three fabulous colors - Sassy Zebra, Majestic Black and Heavenly Chocolate. It really is handy being I can slip it over the bag and not worry about toting 7 different bags.
 
Also, this has been perfect for us when we have went to the river. The kids where shoes that are made for the water. So, when they are done, we throw them in the bag and no worries!
 
If you are like me in anyway and wish for a way to save the shoes you love, then invest in your very own black, brown, or zebra bag (or get all three) and enjoy all that Shoe Along has to offer!

On The Dot The Perfect Spot Review

Thank you On The Dot for allowing me to review your product. All opinions are my own
 

Storing all of our monthly needs as women can be tricky. I used to have a cabinet that I would keep my supplies in until my son decided to knock them off one day all in the toliet. So, I was excited when I stumbled upon a fun and creative solution to feminine care storage: On the Dot, the Perfect Spot!
 
On the Dot is a very strudy box with a plastic base that stores your feminine needs within reach. The plastic base prevents any water from damaging the bottom of the box.

 
There are two compartments inside the box. The bottom is for storing our pads or whatever monthly needs we may have while the top is perfect for tampons (or that is how I am using mine). On the top of the box is a pretty handle, almost like rabbit ears that makes opening the box easy.
 
There are actually a couple of different designs to choose from so finding one that fits your personality and decor will be easy. On the Dot-The Perfect Spot is something that every woman and teen girl needs! 
 

BodyworksBall Review

Thank you to BodyworksBall for allowing me to review their product. All opinions are my own
 
 
BodyworksBall is helping people in all walks of life.  We have many satisfied clients from the world of sports to clients who are recovering from major illnesses. You don’t have to be an athlete to use or benefit from BodyworksBall.

BodyworksBall can help you with tight muscles from working at your desk all day or even if you just have sore muscles from a bad night’s sleep.
 

It is a solid rubbery ball that is attached to an elastic cord and a solid comfort fit handle that allows you to control the ball. Now to look at it you wouldn’t think about how to use it but thankfully there are videos on the site to show all of the different uses. As heavy as it feels, might be a good defense item!

This little ball is very effective. Just a wiggle here and there and you can move the ball around to the perfect spots on your back and neck. My feet are what hurts me the most as I am at a computer for over 8 hours a day. So, I have figured out how to use it while at my desk by rolling the arches back and forth!

Van Der Hagen Gentle Glycerin Soaps

Big Thank You to Van Der Hagen Soaps for sending us a selection of soaps to showcase

 
van der Hagen Enterprises is the premier specialty bar soap manufacturer in the world. The van der Hagen's have supplied soaps to many of the most respected companies in the personal care industry including: Avon, Harrods (UK), Bath & Body Works, Liz Claiborne, The Body Shop (UK), Michael Jordan, Boots (UK), O'Boticario (Brazil), Elizabeth Arden, Walt Disney, Estee' Lauder and Warner Bros. to name a few.
 
van der Hagen Enterprises owes it's renowned reputation as producers of the finest quality soaps to their use of the old fashioned kettle process. During this process, carefully selected ingredients are added to a heated kettle by a master compounder according to exacting temperatures. Once complete, the thin liquid is poured into molds, run through a cooling tunnel and hand packed. The result? A unique formula which contains over 40% humectant moisturizers. In addition, the Deluxe Shave Soap contains Aloe Vera & Shea Butter and the Glycerin Shave Soap contains Vitamin E & Oat Extract.


So, imagine how excited I was to have received a few of their Glycerin Bars to review! First, let me say the scents are intoxicating. I received 4 scents:
 
Fresh: Just what it says. It has a nice, crisp clean scent
Free: No fragrance at all!
Fruity: Heavenly! Smells like oranges to me but my kids favorite!
Floral: Smells so amazing! Just like fresh flowers. This has been my personal favorite! Sorry Olay, you just got booted LOL!
 
The Gentle Glycerin Soaps by Van Der Hagen are hypo-allergenic so even the most sensitive skin can enjoy the luxury of these fine soaps.

 
Each soap looks like they are hand poured! The fit perfectly into the packaging and have the little bubbles in them which to me signifies poured in. Also the name Van Der Hagen is embossed on the bottom of each bar.
 
Van Der Hagen also carries a great line of products for men that are sure to please. Head on over and check Van Der Hagen out on:

CaliMojos Color Changing Flip Flops!

Big Thank You to CaliMojos for allowing us to review a pair of their sandals

Calimojos

I live in flip flops most of the year, even in the dead of winter I am still sporting them. While on a search for some adorable flip flops recently, I ran across Calimojos.  These are adorable flip flops that come in a variety of great colors, and patterns.  They are made by a company called SolarActive and are the most recent addition to their line of color changing products.


I chose a floral design. The straps come to just above the toes as you can see in the picture below. I also love the little stone that is on the edge of each strap.

 
They are comfortable and the great thing is they change color when you go out in the sunlight. You honestly will have people asking you about these if you wear them. I have actually lost these once already to my mother who kindly snuck them out of the house.  The Calimojos come in a variety of size options.  The CaliMojos are great to wear with any outfit and are perfect to wear out by the pool.
 
This is just one of the fun colors and patterns that Calimojos has to offer.  You can visit their website to learn more about these fun flip flops.  You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

PlayTape makes play time fun!

Thank you Playtape for sending us 2 rolls and saving our feet!

 
Ok, it's no secret I have kids. The boys play with car's which in turn means racetracks and all that jazz. Try walking through a maze of stand-up hotwheel tracks to get to the phone. On more than one occasion, I have fallen, stumbled, even damaged by feet with those evil toys!

PlayTape is the quickest, easiest way to create roads for playing with toy cars and trucks. PlayTape sticks to any flat surface, tears easily to any length, and is repositionable and quickly removed without residue, simply by peeling it up. PlayTape is easily stored and transported, and because it's made of paper, is disposable and recyclable. PlayTape is also durable, so you can leave a PlayTape scene on the floor or counter for days of play while you walk, work, and clean over it.

 
Think of all the designs and directions  your kids can go with PlayTape. Plus, no more painful feet or dangerous dancing through tracks. Stick them on the kitchen, family room or up the walls. They are going to be perfect to take on vacation. When we go to visit the grandparents, the kids can play and not worry about dragging around traps.
 
It is sold in retailers nationwide and can be purchased online at www.InRoadtoys.com. PlayTape is available in multiple length and width rolls, as well as various colors. MSRP to $7.99 to $12.99.

Mehron is the undisputed industry leader for professional makeup artist

Thank You Mehron for sending me a selection of makeup to showcase
 

I love makeup! I have a whole collection that keeps growing and growing. One product I had yet to try but hear wonderful things about was Mehron.
 
Mehron has been proudly made in the USA for over 80 years. Mehron is not only for us everyday ladies, but has been used for years by professional makeup artist and starts like Pink. Mehron represents an artisanal approach to creating quality cosmetics that are high-impact and versatile.


It is no secret that I have over 60 tattoos. (Yes, I said 60) They are fashionable if done right but sometimes you can regret it. Let's say your getting married and have that awful ex's name on you. Do you really want that to be seen? This is where Mehron Tattoo Concealer comes in. You can see above, I applied it to my ring finger and it covered the tattoo. Yes, looks a little cakey but I did not get it smooth enough. Tattoo Cover comes in 5 different shades and washes off with soap and water.


Mehron Celebre Pro-HD Pressed Powder comes in 20 different shades. It delivers a satin-smooth, buildable coverage that works perfect for all skin types. Sadly, this color was to light for me but I was able to gift it to my mom. She loves the way the powder does not settle in her lines and gives her a flawless finish.
 
Mehron Celebre Pro-HD Makeup Foundation is also available in 20 shades. This is a oil-free cream that leaves your face with a satin-smooth, flawless finish. A little goes a long way of this foundation. This color, LT3, is the right shade. One thing that the foundation has that others like is the fact it contains Vitamin E, Pomegranate and Aloe Vera that help soothe the texture of the skin.


Mehron L.I.P. Cream is available in 16 colors. (The one here is Sunburst) The wonderful thing about the L.I.P. Cream is that it is it has hydrating cream built in. This keeps the lips smooth and supple. Plus, it wears longer than most products on the market and will not leave marks on your drinking glasses. I wore this the other evening, the color lasted all night even after dinner and look like it was freshly applied.
 
Mehron Cheek Powder is highly pigmented and comes in 12 fashionable colors. This shade is Wine Berry which seems bright, but once applied to the cheeks, it leaves a perfect slightly pink color.


Mehron Cheek Cream comes in 8 cheeky shades. The Cheek Cream is a super creamy blush that gives you a bold, long lasting color. The color is buildable for a more dramatic look if preferred. The creams are concentrated making them easy to use for both highlighting and contouring. So, one product, 3 different ways to use it!

 
This is one of the most fun pallets I have had! Mehron's Intense PRO Pressed Pigments are long-lasting matte finish shadows. They are super bright, fun, and gorgeous. The palette I have here is Fire:


(Left then right) Ignite, Purple Heat, Fire Island, Electric Green, Pure Lightening, Hot Pink, Inferno, and Yellow Spark. My favorites are the Pure Lightening, Electric Green, and Inferno! The shades are smooth and silky which gives a great color payoff!
 
You can purchase any of the products above on Mehron's Website

Beauty by Shea Raw Shea Butter Review #giveaway



Shea Butter benefits to skin & hair are endless. The commercial method of extracting Shea Butter has also added to the perplexity of Shea Butter. Shea Butter is used as an ingredient in soaps, shampoos, conditioners, hair relaxers, lotions, hand & body creams etc...

There is nothing wrong with using Shea Butter as an ingredient as long as it is Unrefined Shea Butter and not processed or refined. If Shea Butter is added to products and the portions are generous along with other natural and/or organic ingredients, the product is good. However, when the Shea Butter is not listed as a RAW ingredient, and is listed as one of the last ingredients, it is not worth buying.


It smells amazing, and leaves my skin ridiculously softer and more healthy. I can not wait to use the Raw Shea Butter in some DIY body products we are making for Christmas.  If you want to purchase yourself a bag of Raw Shea Butter, it is for sale on Amazon!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
