Nuts About This Soap + Giveaway

When you think of nuts what comes to mind? Ice cream toppings, salad toppings, but definitely not laundry detergent! Soap Nuts are an awesome product given to us by Mother Nature herself. 

My loads of laundry smell so clean!  These special nuts are hand sorted and USDA Certified Organic. You put about 6 dried nuts in the muslin bag. Make sure you add the bag before the clothes. If you wash with cold water then you need to pre-soak the nuts. You can use the same nuts for 4-7 washes! A big money saver right there! If you are a big fan of living a "green" lifestyle, then you can't get any closer to nature products than this when it comes to soap. I highly recommend this soap and I can't wait to try their other products.

Check out their website for more products made with soap nuts. NaturOli offers a long list of personal care products from restorative skin care to shampoo.

I also like the fact that they are in Arizona. I love supporting local business!

My New Love

eShakti has done it again! I was approached to do a review from an item in their spring collection. Of course it was soooo hard to choose just one item! When I finally made my decision and received the dress, I couldn't wait to wear it!

This is totally my new favorite dress! It fits perfectly, and I got to choose the sleeve style and length of the dress that I wanted. It is soft comfortable fabric as well. You can wear the dress with or without the belt, and yes, it has pockets! 

Every woman should have at least one item from eShakti in their closet! Shopping doesn't get any better than this.

SOOOO here is why you need to shop with eShakti: You find what you like. They have something you'll love...trust me! Then you customize it to your liking. The length can be longer or shorter, the sleeves can be long or not there at all. All customizing options may not be available for all garments, but you can find that out when you're ordering. They make it really easy for us. How can it get any better?!

They have sizes that fit a variety of women. We're not all cookie cutter figures ya know. eShakti knows this too! 

If you order by March 20th one item will be 50% off! What a great deal!

Thinkfun Has Done it Again!

We had the awesome opportunity to review 2 fun new games from Thinkfun! The first game we played was Word A Round. We had so much fun trying to figure out what these words were. 

Who knew that positioning a word in one continuous ring could be so tricky to read? If you were the first to figure out the word then you won that card. The first person to get 10 cards won the game! It was a pretty fun fast-paced game. I was surprised at how well my son did. These weren't all easy words to figure out. This is a great tool for the kids to make them think. I loved it!

The other game we reviewed was Swish Jr. My son reviewed Swish with me back when it came out and he loved it. Swish Jr is perfect for the younger kids. My 5 yr old really loved it and wanted to play over and over again!

Players race to find "Swishes," two or more cards layered so every shape fits into its matching outline. It awesome for hand/eye coordination and visual perception. My daughter beat me several times, but that could be because I was distracted with taking pictures.
