Monkey Brains Hair Care {Review}

Recently my kids and I (Yes I did too!) tried out a hair care brand called Monkey Brains. When I came across this company, I just knew I had to try out their products. I mean look how cute the packaging is! Banana shaped bottles are a very unique way of getting your little one's attention. And the name.. I love it! When my kids first saw these products they wondered if they were really going to be washing their hair with monkey brains. I said no, its just the name of the company. LOL. My daughter being the silly 7 year old that she is didn't believe me. So my son used it first, then after coming out of the shower and having such soft great smelling hair she agreed to try it. After her shower, she too had the same outcome, soft, clean hair, that smelled very good. She told me she couldn't believe she really thought that monkey brains were in the bottles. I thought that was so funny.
Anyway here are the products that Monkey Brains sent to me for the review...

Goop Out Shampoo-  Goop Out is the ultimate deep cleansing but totally gentle shampoo for you! This stuff will remove excess gunk and leave hair so clean your mom won't believe it!
This shampoo did  a fine job at getting the hair clean! Neither one of my kids use any type of hair gels or anything in their hair, but they do play hard.

Super Softy Conditioner- You play hard but your hair should be soft! So why not follow your shampoo with a conditioner? This one was made to fix your hair from all the playing you do to your do.Well this conditioner is probably the reason why their hair was left feeling so soft. But hey, that's a good thing!

From their website:
Monkey Brains is a new collection of hair care that allows you to express yourself. To be fun, be cool and be yourself! Look around. How many styles do you spot everyday: spikes, fauxhawks, and controlled messiness... Everyone you see is sporting an individual look! With 2 Gels, 2 Glues, a Pomade, a Hair Refresher and a Shampoo and Conditioner you will be able to rock whatever hairstyle you're feelin' at that moment.One day you don't feel like getting in the shower and the next you're searching for the hair gel. But you're confident about how you want to look on any given day. Monkey Brains gives you the tools to look cool and have fun doing it.

So overall, these 2 products worked so well, that we are now using this product in our home all of the time. And for $3.99 each its a great deal! If you aren't using this brand, you really are missing out!

Buy it:
Like I just stated above, these products are all listed as $3.99 each.  I found them at my Local Wal-Mart, if you would like to purchase any of these products, there is a Where To Buy section located at the bottom of that page.

BRUGO Mug Review and {Giveaway!} Ends 2/29 (CLOSED)

I just had the chance to review the most awesome mug ever! Brugo Mug, A Perfect Degree of Taste. Around my house we drink a lot of coffee, hot tea, and of course hot chocolate for the kiddos. So we could not wait to test out this mug. I must say, I was a little skeptical at first. But this mug held up to everything as described on their website. My first drink of coffee was excellent. I did not have to wait to take a sip, I just tipped the mug and sipped. It really was the perfect temperature. If you are like me, which I'm sure you are, you do not like to get your tongue or lips burnt while trying to enjoy a cup of Joe. So this is the perfect mug, really.. Every sip I took was great. I was so happy with it, that I let my kids try it out on some hot chocolate. Of course they fought over who got to use it first, but the end result was, neither of them had to take tiny sips of their hot chocolate and wait for it to cool off. That made one happy Mama. (We will just have to purchase a couple more Brugo Mugs so there won't be anymore fighting over it.) Oh yes, this mug is 100% leak proof too! Now how cool is that?

From their website:
  • Patented 2 oz/25 ml Temperature Control Chamber giving you sip by sip satisfaction at the perfect temperature
  • Double-wall insulation
  • 3-position drink mode selector -  "Lock, Sip, Tip & Cool" - allowing you perfect taste and temperature control whether you need a bolt of caffeine or prefer to linger over your coffee ritual
  • 16oz / 450ml capacity cup size - a large cup
  • Non-slip bottom keeping your coffee where you put it
  • Ergonomic grip for maximum comfort
  • 13 stylish colors
  • Stainless Steel and Chrome accents
  • Fits all cup holders

So... Again, I think this mug is absolutely fabulous. It would make a great gift for any time of the year for anyone who enjoys hot beverages. I can think of a few people that would love this! And I am sure after seeing mine, they will have to get their own!

Connect with Brugo:

Buy it:
You can purchase Brugo Mug for $19.95 but if you purchase 2 or more they will take 25% off, which means they are only $14.95! Definitely worth buying!

Or you can,

San Francisco Salt Company Review and {Giveaway!} Ends 2/26 (CLOSED)

So I want to share that when I was 13 years old I fell off my bike. Long story short, I broke my wrist, it never healed after being in a cast for what seemed like forever. So I had a bone graph done, which involved taking bone from my pelvic bone and placing it into my wrist, and then the 2 bones mending together to get the hairline fracture on my wrist fixed. Okay I said this was going to be short. Anyway now that I am 30, my wrist is bothering me more and more as I get older. I am always looking for something to help my wrist feel better. So when I came across San Francisco Salt Company, and noticed all of the bath salts they have to offer, I knew I just had to contact them, and try their product out. I was sent the Muscle Soak Mineral Bath Salt to review.
Now, I know my wrist isn't a muscle, but I wanted to put this product to the test and see if it would help make my wrist feel better. So I ran some bath water, and poured about 2 handfuls into the tub. I got in and let my wrist emerge under the water while I soaked. I stayed in the tub until my water got too cool to stay in it. After I got out, I did notice that my wrist was no longer throbbing like it usually does. My whole body actually felt pretty good too. It was very relaxing to use this product in the bathtub. I also noticed that my skin felt softer too.

Aunt Nee's Fresh Foods Review and {Giveaway!} Ends 2/23 (CLOSED)

Another family favorite in my household is salsa! We all love going out to eat at the Mexican Restaurants that serve those bowls of warm chips and fresh salsa. Well we had the chance to try out some excellent homemade salsa today. Aunt Nee's Fresh Foods makes it easy to create homemade tasting salsa in just seconds! When I came across this company I knew I needed to contact them and see for myself or should I say, taste for myself if the salsa tastes good or not.  Well it passed with flying colors! Want to see just how easy it is to make this salsa? Then look at the picture below....
See the directions, it really is that simple!!! I put a can of tomatoes in the refrigerator for a few hours, dumped them into the blender added the packet of Mild Salsa and blended for 5 seconds, we like chunkier salsa here. And the salsa was done. My kids and I ate it for a late afternoon snack. If we WOULD have had left overs all you do is place the salsa in a covered container and it lasts up to a week. Ha I don't think anyone would have to worry about keeping this salsa around that long. We gobbled all of ours up in no time today.

Pure goodness in a bowl, or on a chip! You decide!!!

Tea Collection {Review}

Are you looking for a great clothing line? If you are, then I need to tell you about Tea Collection clothing, For Little Citizens of the World. They make clothing for babies, girls, boys, and women.  They were so generous and sent each of my kids a couple pieces of clothing for review. The clothes they received came from their Highland Holiday Collection. The new collection that has just been released  is the Bali Safari.

My daughter loves wearing dresses, so that is what they sent her, along with a pair of leggings. She also loves the color purple, (just like me). She is wearing the Awesome Aura Banded Dress and it is now only $28.50

My son always looks good wearing blue shirts, it brings his eyes out, so they sent him 2 blue shirts, and the pants.

The Highland Holiday Collection came from the destination Modern Mexico. I really loved all of these clothes. They are soft, durable, and have been worn many times by my kids now. They hold up is what I'm trying to say.
The Wild Flower Wrap Dress is what my daughter is wearing in the above picture, and it can be purchased for only $24.50
My son is wearing the Fuerte Polo shirt and it can be purchased for just $16.50 and the Surplus Playwear Pants they can be purchased for $35.00

We believe in the journey. In discovery. In going, doing, being and seeing—exuberantly, warmly and with heartfelt joy. In jumping in and staying in. And staying present and mindful along the way, with a little "joie de vivre."

2. Connecting

In being here. In being open. In sharing. In warmth. In possibilities. We're struck by the rituals and moments and joys and friendships that come with drinking tea. And how wonderful it is to experience them together. It reminds us how small the world is and how alike we all are.

3. Beauty

In seeking and finding the beauty in everything, wherever we go. In inspiration. In honoring originality, creativity, artfulness, simplicity and complexity. We are drawn to the unexpected ways in which beauty inhabits a culture—its colors, shapes, sounds, tastes, and movements, from raw to refined. We're artisans, designers, storytellers, and craftspeople who were born to create unique collections for your unique expressions.

4. Exuberance

We're about embracing each moment, each road, as if we've never been there before. We bring an irrepressible spirit to our endeavors. We come with our eyes and ears wide open. We take unabashed joy in the process of bringing the world home to you.

5. Caring

It's about being good neighbors and good friends. About warmth and a generosity of spirit. About nurturing our families, the details, and each other. We care and connect in our own neighborhood and well beyond it. Call it Tea's take on citizenship. Come get to know our work with The Global Fund for Children. We're always interested in supporting events that benefit children through schools and organizations. Make a donation request.

So as you have just read, this is a great company who truly cares! They offer affordable clothing, that makes sense and looks great on all ages starting at 0-3 months to 12 years, and then women's sizes. I would recommend this clothing to all!

Kroger Shopping Trip 1/17 EXCELLENT TRIP!!!

I stopped by Kroger today after getting the kids from school. I must say this is one of my best shopping trips ever. I got paid .22 to take this all home with me. It was done in 3 separate transactions so I cant really give you the breakdown because my kids' transactions they did lost their receipts... Go figure.
But I am super excited about this trip. My boyfriend needed bodywash, well now he has 4 and I didnt pay a penny for them. (I love the way he smells using this kind too.)

Zevia Zero Calorie Soda Review and {Giveaway!} Ends 2/13 (CLOSED)

I am not much of a soda, (pop) drinker. That is because I do not need to fill my body with all those empty calories and sugar. So when I came across a company called Zevia, I was excited. Why you might ask, well because this soda is made with Stevia, not sugar. I use to be an avid Diet Pepsi drinker up until a few years ago, when my Grandma was diagnosed with cancer, and her doctor told us if you are going to drink pop, you might as well drink regular because the diet is worse for you. So pretty much after that I just stopped drinking it altogether. Okay, not altogether, but to the point where I don't drink it on a weekly or monthly basis. So anyway back to Zevia, they sent me a 6 pack of their Grapefruit Citrus flavored soda for review.
At first I was a little worried I wouldn't like it, because I do not really care for Grapefruit. But to my surprise it was actually pretty good. I tasted more of the citrus flavor than I did the grapefruit. I didn't notice any weird aftertaste like you would with some other types of soda that do not have calories. After drinking the entire can, I didn't feel sluggish and buzzed like I would if I was drinking a regular can of soda.  I love the fact that there is no sugar, no artificial flavorings, or colors, and its all natural.

From their website:
With natural products, being healthy isn’t enough – a product has to taste great, and also be healthy, to really be a compelling alternative. At Zevia, we really believe that we’ve created a better soda.
And we’re fortunate that our fans are vocal. Every day, we receive letters, emails and calls from folks who have just discovered Zevia, and are thrilled to have a product they can feel good about consuming every day.
One of the most fun things about working at Zevia is sharing our products with people who used to drink soda and stopped, or in some cases always avoided soda for health reasons. Kids are the most fun of all – we meet lots of kids who’ve never had soda in their lives, because it was banned in their household, and to watch their faces when they try Zevia for the first time is priceless.
Similarly, people with diabetes, people seeking to lose weight or control their weight, or people who just want to live a healthier life really light up when they discover our product.
We don't think that soda should be a "four-letter word," and we're out to change the way people think about soda by providing a healthy option that tastes great. Please let us know if you have thoughts, comments, suggestions, or just want to say hi. We love hearing from you! ---- Paddy Spence CEO

Zevia comes in 12 different flavors:
 So the verdict is in, I would definitely recommend this soda to the health conscious people who care what they are putting into their bodies. 
I found Zevia at my local Kroger, so I can't wait to go try some other flavors they make.

Connect with Zevia: 

  Buy It:
 You can purchase Zevia online at and  or you can use the Store Locator to find a local retailer near you. 

Or you can,
Win it!
  The very nice people over at Zevia want to give one of my lucky readers a coupon for a free 6 pack of Zevia to try for themselves. Thanks so much Zevia!

 All you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter Form below with the MANDATORY Entries filled out. If you choose to do the extra entries, that's great too! Remember if you Click, I DID THIS! Please make sure you really did, because I verify all entries.

Good Luck!

Purex UltraPacks {Review}

Look! Its another Purex Product Review. The reason I say this is because I just posted about the Purex Triple Action Detergent yesterday, But its all good because as I mentioned before, I am a huge fan of Purex. Also being a member of the Purex Insiders program, this was made possible. Anyway today I am posting about New Purex UltraPacks. This is the best idea yet, that Purex has came out with. These little UltraPacks are a very clever idea. They are premeasured, making life easier, because they are mess free! You know how no matter how hard you try to not spill liquid detergent it still ends up in places its not suppose to? And then when you are using the powder detergent it always seems to get everywhere, especially when you have a little bit left in the box and knock it on the floor. (Yup, been there, done that!) These wonderful additions to my family have been so easy to use. My kids even like helping with the laundry now, because they just toss it in, and then put the clothes in the washer. Here is another good thing, you can use these with cold water, and ANY type of washing machine. Again, Purex makes it easy on us so we don't have to look for a certain type of detergent for our washers.
Soon all of you that want to try these great inventions will be able to. Purex is launching this product in February. So make sure you check your favorite retailers shelves then to try them out.

How to Use

1) Dry your hands before handling the UltraPacks – (water dissolves the film).
2) Put the packs in the washer before adding clothing (the more time they spend in the water, the faster they dissolve).
3) If you have a front loader, make sure to put the pack directly into the drum, not in the drawer. 

See! Look how easy they are to use! I would recommend these for everyone that does laundry! 

Disclaimer: I received a free sample of the above mentioned product from Purex as part of their Purex Insiders Program. All opinions are 100% mine. I was not monetary compensated for this review.

Purex Triple Action Detergent {Review}

I was recently sent a full size bottle of the New Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent, as being part of the Purex Insiders program. I have always been a huge fan of Purex, and with each new product they produce, the happier I am when doing my laundry!

When my package arrived, I opened it, and then I opened the bottle of Purex. I just love to smell laundry soaps, and this one smelled very nice. Mountain Breeze is the name of this one, and it had a nice clean smell, but not too overpowering, which is what I like. Here is the best part of this fabulous detergent. Its made for ALL washing machines. Old, and new, you can use this detergent with whatever type of washer you own. Very cool. It really stinks when you are looking for a detergent come to find out, its not compatible with your washer. See, do the "happy dance" now, because you won't run into that problem with this one.

I have 2 kids, who are 10 and 7, that LOVE playing outside and getting dirty. I put Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent to the test, and that being said I really did. Since the weather has been really weird for this time of year, my kids have got to play outside and get really dirty and muddy. And every time this has happened, I've used the Purex and their clothes have came out clean and stainless. No use of pretreatments, I just put them right into the washer and BAM! The clothes were clean, and no one could tell they were covered in mud.
This detergent comes in many different scents as well as all their other products do.
