One winner will receive their choice of Jewel Kade wax seal charm (crown, bird, or fleur de lis) and matching ball chain.
It’s vintage yet modern. Fashionable yet timeless. Universal yet very, very personal. Jewel Kade is somehow everything to everyone, and perhaps that’s because jewelry that comes from the heart…speaks to the heart.
With so many “miracle” drinks out on the market, it is difficult to sort through what is good for you and what is not. I have been searching for a tea that could help me with energy, which ultimately could lead to weight loss (if I can keep myself energized I can do so much more!). That is when I found out about Teatoxify. This organic tea blend is made from 15 organic ingredients with herbal and medicinal properties that will make you feel energized and help detox your body from toxin build up! I received a canister of Teatoxify organic tea in exchange for my honest opinion.
When our girls take a bath, they probably use more soap than is needed to wash an entire kindergarten classroom post pumpkin farm field trip. They love to lather up their wash clothes over and over again with body wash effectively going through a bottle quite quickly. In my and the hubby’s bathroom, we have bar soap, but I hate how icky, slippery a bar gets and that disgusting lump of soap residue that builds up in the corner of our tub from where we put the soap each morning. The new Big Lather soap sponge has made a dramatic change in our house when it comes to soap waste, convenience and mess. I received a Big Lather soap sponge in exchange for my honest opinion.
Whether you are trying to be greener and save room in the landfills, or trying to have better soil for your gardens, composting is a great way to accomplish both of these and more! BioBag is the leader in bringing certified compostable bags to the table for everything from yard waste to pet waste, food waste and even lunch bags! In addition to offering certified compostable bags, BioBag also offers a Max Air Composting System so that you can start the composting process inside your home! I received one of BioBag’s countertop Max Air Composting Systems in exchange for my honest opinion.
The winter and then winter-to-spring transition is so hard on my lips and my girls’ lips, too! To avoid chapped lips, I love to have a good lip scrub and lip balm to keep our lips healthy, happy and feeling their best, but so many on the market are full of chemicals and other unsavory ingredients. When I set to finding a quality and natural lip scrub, I was happy to find that Moody Sisters Natural Skincare has great organic lip scrub and lip balm that will make your lips (and you!) happy! I received a lip scrub and lip balm in exchange for my honest opinion.
It’s the most normal thing in America, for when we have something that smells to simply cover or mask the smell. Candles, potpourri, oils, sprays and anything else we can find on the market. But how about eliminating odor instead of just covering it? Even better, what if you find a deodorizer that was natural and sustainable? Ever Bamboo takes natures fastest growing plant, bamboo , and uses its natural properties to make products that will not just deodorize, but also dehumidify your home (and body!) I received an assortment of Ever Bamboo deodorizer products in exchange for my honest opinion.
When it comes to reading, my girls just cannot get enough. We have been reading chapter books to them since they were itty bitty, and now at ages four and six, we are reading Harry Potter together as a family. Our six-year-old is reading like crazy, and that makes little sister feel a bit behind, so she has been working on her reading skills so that she can be an active participant in family book nights instead of just listening. One great way to improve pre-reading and strengthen existing reading skills for younger children is through the use of sight words. Sight words are commonly seen or used words that in order to improve reading skills, it is encouraged that children memorize them at sight, instead of using reading decoding skills to figure out (sounding out, etc). The trick to learning these is exposure – hanging them in commonly seen places (like labeling your door, a door!). Rock ‘n Learn brings educational DVD movies, CDs and mobile apps to reinforce learning skills for children. Their Sight Words series incorporates the Dolch sight word list with interactive and fun dance moves. I received a copy of Level 2 Sight Words in exchange for my honest opinion.
