Campbell's Sample Pack Review from Crowdtap

I received a wonderful box full of Campbell's products for free as part of Crowdtap's Sample Share promotion to review. So many goodies! The kit contained a large shopping bag,recipe booklet,spoon,small wooden cutting board,drink shaker and all the Campbell's products you see here. My daughter loved the Slow Kettle Soup and Spaghettio's. My husband enjoyed the new Beer with Cheese Bean and Bacon Soup at work. I added the savory portabello mushroom soup to 2 boxes of mac and cheese to give it added flavor. I haven't used any of the other products yet,but I'm sure they will come in handy to go with meals. The recipe book gives lots of handy ideas. Thanks so much Campbell's and Crowdtap for helping this busy Mom get more creative in the kitchen. Thank you readers for reading.

TUO-Phone Cell Phone Case Review

I wanted a new cell phone case for my Nokia 925 because my old case is fraying. The Tuo Phone Case sadly doesn't fit it. However when I paired it with my daughter's smaller phone the Nokia 521,it fits perfectly. Here is a photo of how it looks on a Nokia 521 phone. This phone case come with 2 compartments so that you can also store money,debit/credit cards, or business cards inside it as well. I also has a clip on the back for people who like to attach their phones to their belts. I think it's a nice little travel phone case over all. This phone case can also fit the Iphone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S,and 5C I hope that they make larger sizes in the future. In the mean time,I'm going to keep looking for a larger case. If you think this case is something that would be good for your phone,check out their TUO's listing on Amazon for more information. Thanks for reading! I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only…

100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge Infused With Activated Charcoal & 100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge Infused with French Green Clay Review Update

I love beauty products. When I saw this new facial sponge I had to give it a try. I received the sponge just how you see it in the photo.The sponge is plastic wrapped so it's nice and sanitary. Directions are simple. You just take the sponge out of the plastic,wet it until it's damp and then wash you face. No facial wash required. The secret is the infused Konjac powder inside the sponge that cleans your skin. It states not to wring it dry as this can damage the delicate sponge fibers inside of it. I accidentally did this but it didn't damage it luckily.It has a string on it so you can hang it in your bathroom to air dry. This sponge felt soft and smooth. It wasn't abrasive in the least. I also received the 100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge Infused with French Green Clay to review. Here is what both sponges look like in comparison. As you can see,the sponge with the French Green Clay is larger in size. This one also cleanses really well. Like the charcoal infused spo…

Old Factory Candles Review Fall Giveaway

I received a box of Old Factory Candles for free to review. The first thing I noticed upon unwrapping it was the quaint packaging.

I love how nostalgic the box is. Very cute.

Inside the box are three different scented candles. I chose the Fall Harvest Collection in Pumpkin Spice,Cranberry,an Autumn Leaves.

As you can see,these candles contain no artificial colors. They are natural soy and can be burned for up to 20 hours. The pumpkin spice and cranberry candles smell amazing. The autumn leaves is a lighter scented candle. I could barely smell the fragrance upon opening the lid. It does give off a nice mild fragrance when lit which I found very pleasant.

These candles are sold by Red Rover and are Fulfilled by Amazon. However one lucky reader will get a chance to get their own three pack of Old Factory Candles for free.
Here is a list of all many collections you can choose from. Some have some pretty interesting names.
New Born Baby-Baby Powder, First Blanket, Baby Shampoo

Sieva Cellulite and Body Firming Cream Review

I received a jar of Sieva Cellulite Body Cream to review. It comes in a very nice size jar. The first thing I noticed when I opened up the jar, was the potent smell of the product. I read the ingredient label on the back because I thought it might be Tea Tree Oil.To my surprise one of the main ingredients is Castor Oil. (Tea Tree oil is in the product ingredients as well.)I had heard about it used as a laxative in olden times but not as an ingredient in skin care cream. I did a little research and apparently it's an ingredient in a lot of moisturizers and cosmetics. It has a somewhat thick consistency that reminds me of custard. It's also a little sticky when you put it on. I applied the cream to my skin and noticed an immediate tingling affect. Unfortunately, I just can get past the smell to continue using it. Directions on the jar state that you can use it on your stomach,hips,thighs,arms and glutes.This product is made in the USA and sold through Amazon by Trusted Healt…

Gecko Monitor Software Review & Give Away

I received a free copy of Gecko Monitor Software to review. I ran a test on my pc and took a photo of my screen shot to show you just what the software is capable of picking up. It's quite a handy little tool. This software allows you to monitor your pc access while you are away from home or allowing your child to use your computer. It's perfect for families who share a pc and who want to keep track of your child's internet activity and so much more. The way the software works is that is stores a series of screenshots of everything that has been done on your pc while you are away. You install it on your system,and it runs in the background undetected. The only way a person would know it's there,if from the icon on the desktop. As you can see from the photo,this takes screen shots of just about everything. Keystrokes,web sites that were visited,files that were printed,files that were opened,desktop applications, and clipboard usage and gives you a timeline logge…

Haven Book Set 1&2 By D.C. Akers Review

I received a free ebook copy to review. I thought this young adult story set was quite good. Book 1 reminded me somewhat of R.L Stine's work. It was campy,spooky and had just the right amount of mystery to get you hooked in and read more. This series is about a boy names Sam and his Sister Sara who live with their Mother in a little town. Everything seems normal for Sam until new neighbors move in next door. Then Sam starts to see things that he can't fathom. I don't want to give any spoilers so I will just state that book one is a good intro starter on the lives of Sam and his family. Book 2 introduces you to a whole new cast of fantasy characters. Vampires,Elves Witches,Goblins. Some may or may not have Sam and his families interests at heart. Without giving away any spoilers you will have to read it yourself. I recommend this series for anyone who loves paranormal/fantasy fiction books. Although the series is intended for young adults,I think this series would be go…

Dot&Dot Travel Organizer Water Proof Bag Review.

I received one black Dot&Dot travel organizer bag in size extra small. The measurements on this bag are 7.5"x3.5"x1". Here is a photo of the product and the bag that it was enclosed in: I like how this bag is small enough to fit in your purse,yet can hold travel size toiletries. The zipper on the bag is made of plastic and seems pretty sturdy as well. Since it's waterproof,if anything were to burst accidentally,the rest of my belongings inside my bag would be protected. The bag even comes with it's own little case and a key chain. I would recommend these bags for anyone that does a lot of traveling or could use water proof storage. They are quite handy to have. *Special update* Readers can get $5 dollars off on a set of packing cubes from Dot&Dot. These cubes are some what larger then the bag in this review and hold more. They come with handles and are really nice for storing small items like cosmetics.

Qualizzi BLUE Micro LED Lights Review

I received these lights free for review compliments of Qualizi and Tomoson. Qualizzi LED lights are battery operated and take 3 AA batteries. The box can be turned off and on with the switch on the side. These lights are not recommended for children under 7 to use as the battery compartment does not close with a screw. These are meant more for adults to use. The lights can be used in a variety of ways to decorate your home or office space. Since Halloween is coming up,I decided to use mine for my table center piece. This was taken without flash to give you an idea of how they glow.This was taken with flash to show more detail on how I arranged them. In the future I would love to see these strands of lights sold in other colors. The strands claim to be 7 foot in length,but mine seemed to be about 6 foot. Which isn't a problem for me as I can use them for small table top displays,wreaths or small trees. If you would like to find out more about Qualizzi's products,please clic…

Azara Organics Seaweed Powder Review

This was the first time I had ever tried a seaweed powder for my skin. I was curious about it since I had read that it can help give you clearer smoother skin. I figured I would give it a try.
Azara Organics Seaweed Powder can be used for facial masks as well as doing body wraps. You can also make your own body scrub with it to remove impurities from the skin.
Because this is a 100% pure product,it does smell like the sea. So package instructions state you can use a couple of drops of essential oil to it before applying to your skin.
To make a facial mask Apply 1-2 teaspoons of seaweed powder,2 teaspoons of warm water,and a few drops of essential oil. Leave on your face for about 15 minutes and rinse.
I use this to make facial masks and love how my pores are more refined and clear. This gets out all the gunk and impurities that regular soap and water leaves behind.
This product is for EXTERNAL use only. If you have an iodine allergy, I would not recommend this product because iodin…

Mary Lambert Heart On My Sleeve Album Review #HeartOnMySleeve #O2O

Heart On My Sleeve is surprisingly Mary Lambert's first full length studio album. The first time I had heard about her, was when a friend shared a music video that Mary had done. The song was "She Keeps Me Warm". The song is so pure and honest about her feelings that I had to share it with my friends on Facebook. I later learned that she collaborated with Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis for a track on their album titled "Same Love. I'm so happy that Mary released this album. Her voice is so beautiful. You just want to listen to it forever. She can also be fun and playful. Which you get to hear in her track "Secrets" from this album and see it in her video below. The list of tracks for Heart On My Sleeve are: 1.Secrets(Explicit Content) 2.So Far Away 3.Ribcage (feat.
