Ebook Growing Culinary Herbs In Containers - Healthy&Delicious! (Tomoson) - Product Review

I received the  Ebook Gardening with Little Miss Greenfingers; Growing Culinary Herbs In Containers - Healthy&Delicious! The book is written by Anja Koch, and is about how to grow herbs from seeds even indoors. It gives you ideas of how to grow your own herbs even in small spaces.... the best environment for which type of herbs, what you'll need to get started, how to grow them right from seeds, even the most popular herbs, what they taste like and how to cook with them.

I like the section about harvesting and preserving the herbs.... I learned a lot about how they can be stored which I found really informative. I also especially liked the section explaining how to marinate the herbs in oil or vinegar....I love oil bread dippers, so if all goes well, I'll be making my own in no time!

I've been known to have a rather black thumb when it comes to any type of plant....so going through this Ebook has got me hyped up and literally almost made me run out the door to start buying supplies. I LOVE fresh herbs... but...lets be real... I kill them...LOL. I am super excited to get started and "M" loves to plant so it's going to be really fun!

Thanks to Tomoson and Anja for letting me do the review! Our dinners will thank you too!

George's Special Creams - Product Review and Giveaway!!

I was approached to review George's Special Dry Skin Cream and George's Light Special Moisturizing Lotion. Was excited to try a fellow Canadian's product... love to show support where I can.

The Special Dry Skin Cream is recommended by dermatologists.... and helps relieve dry skin...and it lasts. It's thick and creamy...but didn't feel greasy after, which I liked. Its great for those with eczema, psoriasis and other conditions. It is non-prescription, is fragrance free, with no additives and is perfect for the winter skin "blahs". It helped a ton with my dry hands and cuticles.

The Light Special Moisturizing Lotion you is a lighter version of the Dry Skin Cream, and is light enough for every day use. This cream I tried on my legs, took a while to rub in, which was weird at first...I guess I've been buying lower quality creams in the past because my legs stayed moisturized the whole day with this one. It is free of parabens and is hypoallergenic... which means... yes...little "M" can use it too!

I loved the story behind the cream....it all started 15 years ago... George, a pharmacist in Alberta grabbed his wife's mixer and created a product for Albertans to use during the cold winter months...and I'm sure they're glad he did!

Thanks to George for making a cream that will get my poor hands through this winter and for offering a giveaway!

For more information and ordering please visit http://georgescream.com

What's up for grabs??? Gift bag that includes a 450g jar and 30ml tube of the special dry cream AND a 360ml bottle and 30ml tube of the light moisturizing lotion! (Canada)
Contest Closes February 4th!!

Fun Bites - Product Review and Coupon Code!

I received a set of FunBites to review... one of each actually! I have used many other food cutters in the past, but when I saw these, I noticed a difference right away. I liked the shapes of these, they were easy to use and to hold....and I especially liked the popper. It is an extra piece you place in the cutter to help pop out the shapes.... trust me... this is a BIG DEAL! Do you know how many times I've riped M's shapes trying to get them out of the other cutters? Poor "M" ate more broken hearts and flowers than full ones! LOL. I washed the cutters right away and off I went making a super cute snack for "M". I liked how sharp these were....cut through anything from bread to apples in no time...and the poppers pressed them out perfectly. The checked ones are great for making adult party snacks too.... bite sized sandwiches... a snap to make! They are dishwasher safe and BPA free making my life a ton easier....and I liked that "M" had fun eating her snack.... I can't wait to use these more!!! I have so many ideas....plus... they make a fruit salad in no time....I know... I made one...hahaha!

Huge thanks to FunBites for sending me out a couple to try! Man... I can't wait till our next get together... look out Martha Stewart!

The Slice™ Safety Cutter (Tomoson) - Product Review

I received a Slice™ Safety Cutter for review. I'll admit, I'm addicted to the show Extreme Couponing...
which is actually really funny because even though I clip some coupons...I never remember to use them! LOL. This cutter is great for clipping pretty much anything... I like using it to get in that tough plastic packaging.... you know the kind that you end up almost slicing a finger off to try to open? Ya.. I know you know what I'm talking about! LOL. I also liked it for small work like doing some crafts with "M" and stealing some recipes out of my fave cooking mag. The cutter itself is small enough to throw in your wallet...or even use the key-ring hole...to keep it close. The blade is ceramic so it stays sharp, but when you run your finger across it....it doesn't feel sharp, which is great. The shape was comfortable to use too.
Thanks to Slice™ Safety Cutter and Tomoson for letting me do the review.....its my new secret weapon in my arsenal of crafting accessories!

iMo Camera Strap - Review

I received a camera strap from iMo Camera Fashion. I chose the black and white one to review....the ends are made of leather and the strap hold 55 – 85kg! I had no problem switching out my old camera strap...so easy to "install"...lol. I loved the black background with white pattern (symmetrical....fresh...and totally me!). The underside of the strap is neoprene....just enough cushion to make carrying really easy....and it's long! Which I liked..made it easy to fling over my back when I had to chase "M" around.  The stitching was sturdy..... the quick release snaps were nice and tight... so I didn't have to worry about dropping my camera.

They have a ton of different patterns to choose from... I really had a hard time choosing.... even leopard.... yes... I said it... and I was totally on the fence!

Huge thanks to iMo for sending out my new trendy accessory... I love taking pics of "M"... so I'm sure I'll wear this one out! :)

BodyMind Weight Loss Hypnosis Pack (Tomoson) - Review

I received the BodyMind Weight Loss Hypnosis Pack. It is a set of 3 self-hypnosis sessions to help you manage and continue to lose weight, promote healthy eating and exercise. I was totally skeptical when seeing these... but I figured... I'd try it out. No.... my new years resolution isn't just to "lose weight".... its been the same one for as long as I can remember. It is....rather... to make more time for myself. If that includes heading to the gym for 45 min after work to de-stress... and the hubby picking up "M"... so be it. I run around constantly like a chicken with my head cut off....stress out over everything and really... its...well... my time. Sooooo... back to this....product. I downloaded all 3 of the sessions and popped them into my ipod. No gonna lie... if you actually listen to the sessions... you really start to relax (which helps with my new years resolution....). It was a bit weird to begin with, but once I got into it...I felt really good after. I really enjoyed the women's voice in the sessions...I can't wait to keep going with these... there's a bit of a schedule to follow (which I've started) so this is going to be really good....they've changed a skeptic into a believer :)

Spongeables® Pedi-Scrub™ (Tomoson) - Review and Giveaway!

I received a Spongeables® Pedi-Scrub™ for review. It is a foot buffer...one side is soft...smells fantastic and leaves your feet squeaky clean, the other...gets rid of all you dry areas! They have 2 different scents... on Lavender & Tea Tree Oil and the other is Citron-Eucalyptus. I chose the Lavender & Tee Tree Oil.... smells awesome... plus totally loved this for the gym locker after a good cardio session it's amazing! I like that all the ingredients are infused into the sponge so no need to worry about an extra bottle of "stuff" to carry around. You can get 20+ washes out of it too.... which is awesome!
