Frog, Puppy, Pig, or Panda



Today I would like to share with you another item I was sent for a review. It is also through Tomoson and it was from Thera Pearl and even though I was sent the frog to review all the thoughts in the review are mine and my families.
I got a Frog and I was so happy as this is Charlies favorite animal. Charlies also like Spool and usually demands for that.


Charlie is one of those children who can trip over his own feet and so I was so excited when I found out about these fun ice packs as I thought it might keep him still when he ends up hurting himself. As he will ask me for a ice pack and it takes me longer to make it than he uses it. So with these I was hopping if and when he gets hurt I could take it out of the freezer and put it on his sore and we could make up stories about the animals and why they came to help him out.

So the other day we went to a event and a friends little boy  was there and he had fallen off the bed and hurt his ear and Marci needed a ice pack and Charlie started to tell her about his and that he could borrow it as it would make him feel all better. I was so Proud of Charlie and with him doing this I know once he is hurt that he will use it. For the limited time only, during festival season you can get change to win Sprint Coupon Codes for FREE.

I am even thinking of buying them and giving them as Christmas Gifts as they are something all families could and should use. I also think it would be neat if hospitals, schools and day cares used them.

I love that they come in different animals as this means there would be one for every child as there is such a fun variety. Heck I am a adult and I would not mind having one for myself and if I did I would get the puppy.

If you where going to purchase one for yourself which one would you chose and why?

I like knowing that it only takes them 20  minutes to freeze and that they do not leak. Knowing they are hypoallergenic is another plus.

I also like that when I was on the site I found so many items I can and will check into as it makes shopping so much easier as I can do it all on one site. As I would like one of the knee wraps and also neck and back wrap as working on this computer all day wreaks havoc with my body.

Yucky hair no more!!



Today I would like to share another product I found through Tomoson and was sent for a review. Before I being the review though I would like to let you know I was sent one of there products but the thoughts in the review are all mine and mine alone. Check CouponCodesLady for more.


My step daughter Leslie is in High School ROTC and she is always having to go out and do camp outs and things. Being a teenager she hates when her hair is a mess and so I thought it would be fun to try this out and if it worked to purchase some for her as school starts soon. Once it arrived I showed it to her and my Niece and they where both going to the Water Park that day and asked to take it and share it with there friends. So I knew they liked it. 
I called them that night to see how it worked and neither of them could stop Raving about it and asked me to send them the link to the website as they and there friends wanted to purchase some so they would have it when they went back to school.
I asked them if they had saved any for me to try and they did which was nice as I also saw for myself how well it worked. I even had both David and Charlie use some and they agreed it would be nice to have on hand. 
I liked that it did not make my hair greasy or that it did not weigh it down. The smell was nice but not too overpowering. I think it would make a nice gift for a Teenager or a Bride who is going on her Honeymoon to the Beach or the Ocean. 
I would even use this in small children as it did not bother Charlie and it helped when we where out and about and his hair ended up all sweaty. 
I know if my mother and sister knew about it they also would order some and try it out as they travel a lot. 
I was sent Batiste Dry Shampoo in Floral and Flirty Blush. I was afraid the scent would be overpowering but it was not. In face once it was in my hair I could barely smell it so someone who is sensitive to fragrances could still use this. I liked knowing it is made with Rich Starch instead of Cornstarch as Cornstarch will weigh your hair down. There are many hair and health related supplement available, but BioTrust is one of the best. If you want to check biotrust reviews you should check the given link.
Another thing I like is that if you color  your hair they have items that will help with the 
Touch Ups.  So this is something else I can not wait to try out. I also would like to check out some of the different fragrances and I know to watch the site as they come out with new ones all the time. 
Since I was able to check out Batiste I learned they carry  a wide variety of items and I can not wait to try them out. If you would like to as well you can see them at: http://www.neotericcosmetics.com/batiste/products.html
They also offer a newsletter and I signed up and I hope you will as well. 
If you are looking for a way to make some extra cash you should check out there affiliate program as I may. 
They even have items for a Diabetic and since my mother and brother n law both are I will be looking into these items as I would like to order them some for Christmas.
If you have not heard of Batiste I hope you take the time to check it out as I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.
Product Description
Summers are full of events, outdoor activities and long weekends. Batiste is a quick and convenient way to give your hair the boost it needs! Batiste banishes oily roots and revitalizes greasy, dull & lifeless hair between washes, without water. Most dry shampoos are made with corn starch - but not Batiste! It's made with rice starch, which is lighter on your hair so it won't weigh it down or leave a heavy residue! It can also be used to add volume to fine hair. Give Batiste a try when you're running late, camping, or just because you want to!

A Boy's bathroom

Today I am going to share another item I was able to review for Tomoson and this time it is:

Mildew-Resistant Antibacterial Heavy-Duty Shower Curtain Line.

I would like to let you know even though I was sent the item all the thoughts in the review are mine and my families. 



With Charlie being a typical boy getting into the shower after him is scary. As he brings all kinds of toys and animals into it and I am always afraid one of us is going to end up sick. In my shower he has even been known to keep his frog. So no matter how weal I clean the shower and tubs I am not always sure it is clean as I do not take the Shower Curtain done which I am sure I should.

You should see his hands sometimes when he goes and pulls it back to get into the shower. I just cringe. I can see him leaving all kinds of germs on it that we all pick up. Plus I have animals that rub against it as well. I should change the shower curtain out once a week or at least take it down and wash it but I do not and I know I never will. 

So this is why it was nice to be able to try out this shower curtain as it is Mildew Resistant and this means I can wash  it off and leave it hanging up and no one would end up sick. I like that a lot. I also like knowing it repels bacteria as well. Plus with it being clear I can see into the shower to see what Charlie is doing. 

Or I can hang a cloth shower curtain in front that will not get wet but allow the bathroom to look a little dressier which I have never been able to do. As I usually just grab a cheap shower curtain as I know it would either tear or start to look grungy in a few weeks and I would throw it out. 

Not with this one as it will last for a long time. It is thicker than most shower curtains and so much better made. I would tell anyone with a shower they should purchase one as well. I also think they would make a wonderful gift. If I had a hotel and there where showers in the bath tubs these are the shower curtains I would use in all of the rooms. 

I like knowing the grommets are rust free and that it is safe to use for at least 15 months. I have never had a Shower Curtain last that long. Have you? I also like knowing the holes with the Grommets will not tear like they do with normal shower curtains. 

ired of throwing out a flimsy shower curtain liner every few months, when it starts to tear or get mold spots? It's like throwing money down the drain. You won't have that problem with this long-lasting alternative.
Prevents Mildew and Bacteria Growth
Damp, closed-up bathrooms are perfect breeding grounds for the organisms that can cause allergies, asthma attacks and other health problems. This liner is one less thing to worry about -- it is treated to keep mildew, molds and bacteria from growing on it. In fact, it's guaranteed to be mildew free for 15 months!
Heavyweight 10-Gauge Vinyl
The liner is so substantial, it could actually stand on its own as a shower curtain. Plus, its weight keeps it from billowing while you shower, the way lightweight liners do. This material is exceptionally tear-resistant, and the header is reinforced with nylon mesh for even more durability.
Rust-Proof Metal Grommets
While plastic curtain ring holes tear almost as soon as you start pulling on the curtain, these metal grommets take whatever you dish out. They're coated to prevent rusting, too.
Wipes Clean
Soap and oil residues are easily removed with a sponge and warm soapy mixture. To protect the anti-mildew finish, the liner should not be put in the dryer or ironed.

Hands and Feet

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com and coupon at momscouponcodes.com Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Today I am reviewing another item I was sent from Tomoson and it is from Tree Hut and it is there
 Hand and Foot Care. Before I share my thoughts with you on the items though I wanted to let you
know I am working with Tomoson on the review and that Tree Hut sent me the items but that the
thoughts in the reviews are all mine and mine alone.



I was sent three products to review and they are Aloe & Peppermint Foot Cream / Peppermint & Sugar Foot Scrub / Moroccan Rose Renewing Hand Cream




The  first product I would like to share with you is there Exfoliating Foot Scrub. I am one who hates to wear shoes and so my feet show this. The heels are cracked and no matter how many times I wash my feet they still do not look as clean as I would like them to. I also wear a lot of sandles when I attend events and I hate the way my heels look in them. I had been looking for something to use to help with this. So I was so excited when I found out 
Tree Hut has items that could help with it. I could not wait for it to arrive. Once it did I opened it up and smelled it as I did not want to use something that smelled. As I did not want anyone to know I was using something. The scent is so mild that no one noticed it at all. I was so glad. I even had to take the bottle to David and open it and ask him to smell it as he never knew I was using it. David said he liked how mild it was. He did ask me if it was working and I was able to show him that it was. So the next day he decided to try it out and he liked it as much as I did. Davids mom is a Diabetic and I let her use some and after that she went out and bought some for her and the girls. I like knowing I can use it at night right before bed as it helped my feet relax. I actually would sleep better once I used it. 




The second product I used was there Soothing Foot Cream and it is just awesome sauce. I love it and would not be with out it. It also have a nice calming scent to it. I think both of these products would make a wonderful gift for either a man or a women. I used mine every day and my feet looked brand new. I would not be without them. You also use this one on your Heels and I can tell you I am no longer embarrassed to wear Sandals to the events I attend.  My feet would actually relax after putting this on so I could sleep better. I will never be with out it again. 




Then the last item I was sent to review was there Moroccan Rose Renewing Hand Cream. I am not one who usually useds hand creams as they can be greasy and dry my hands out. But I did not have a problem with it doing either of these. I loved the scent of it and I also like that it helped my hands after typing all day. I think this would make a wonderful gift. I even used it on Charlie and he enjoyed it as much as I did. The scent is not overpowering which is nice as I would use it when I headed out to do a Event. I like knowing it helps with aging and that I can use it as much as I need to. I think everyone should try it out.

T Shirts

Fuzzy Ink | Mustache Shirts | Moustache Cookie Cutters

Today I will be sharing a T Shirt called  T-Riffic Failure Shirt.  The T Shirt came from a site called Fuzzy Ink. Before I share my thoughts with you though I would like to let you know I was sent the T Shirt for free to conduct the review on.



David is someone who would wear a T Shirt to a Wedding if I would allow it. The more unique the more he wants to wear it. So when I saw this shirt on Tomoson I knew it would be perfect for David. I also knew Charlie would like it as it has a Dinosaur on it.

Once the shirt arrived Charlie grabbed it as he thought it was his. For the first day or two he slept in it. Charlie kept telling his dad it was so comfortable and that it was his PJ's that I thought David would never get to try it out. Who wants to argue with a 5 year old? Not me. My saying is pick your battles and a T SHirt is not worth arguing over. I would have just bought another one.

T-Riffic Failure T-Shirt

But then one day Charlie walks into the front room and hands it to David. Charlie tells his dad he wants him to wear it to the park they where going to. David put it on immediately. The size I chose fit him perfectly. The color looked good on him. Plus the design looked really nice.



I asked David what he thought of it and he said he liked it a lot and wanted to know where I got it at as he would like to order some more of there shirts. David wore it down to his mom and dads and his daughter Leslie told him she wanted it and he should give it to him. So know I am going to purchase both Charlie and one of there own. It will be nice to have them all with the same shirt and I will take a picture how his mom. I know she will like having it as she does not have one of all three of them.

The material on the shirt is soft and it did not draw up once it was washed. The design does not fade and peel off like a lot of shirts I have bought. I love how well it is made. The sewing on it is done so well that the T Shirt does not snag.

I think it would make a wonderful Gift. I have shared Fuzzy Ink with several people who wear T Shirts and they all found some they like. So I can tell you I will be shopping with them in the future as I hate buying a
T Shirt in the store and walking out and you seeing it on at least 5 other people. With these shirts that does not happen.

Sweet Home Alligator V-Neck

Charlie saw this one and he feel in love with it. I also showed the site to David and he liked that they carry the Mustache shirts and has asked for one of them. The one he liked the most is of the M & M Guys. You should check it out as it is so cute. You can see it if you use this link

Labels and so much more

Today I would like to share some items I was sent from Tomoson from Lovable Labels as they where kind enough to send me and Charlie some to try out. Even though I was sent a package all the thoughts in the review are mine and Charlies alone.

With this being Charlies first year in school I am not sure what to expect and so when I was allowed to review the labels I was so excited as I knew that if I needed to label anything I would be able to thanks to Lovable Labels. Plus I would be able to share the company with everyone I know as this would allow them to try it out with there own families.

I was sent there Back To School pack and I was so excited at there was over 165 labels in the package which meant we could label everything and not worry about running out. Plus I knew as much as Charlie likes labels that if he had a chance he would use some when we where not ready to so having this many was wonderful.

I love that these come with a instruction booklet on the best way to use them. As I had purchased labels from other companies before and they did not come with instructions and we tried to use them and ruined them which caused us to not only waste the labels but to waste money as well. Which I hated as money does not grow on trees.

Inside the packet I was sent was the following types of labels.



 Regular Sticker Labels and these are used for lunch kits as they are both micro wave and dishwasher safe. I could use them to label his school supplies. The DVD's he takes to his friends and the list goes on and on.

For Charlie and I we used them to label not only his school supplies but his dads items he uses for work as someone keeps taking his dads stuff. Now we know Davids name is not Charlie but we knew if someone had something with Charlie on it that it would have been David's as he is the only one at work with a son named Charlie. I even used it inside Charlies Bible as he has left it at Church before and this would tell them who it belonged to. When I was not watching Charlie he even started to label his cars.



The next labels we tried out was the Slimline Labels and they say they where for pens and pencils and hair brushes and so on.

Charlie and I used his to label his Knick Knacks he collects as he likes to take them for Show and Tell once school starts. I also used them to label his computer he has that he can take with him when I am out working.  Since they are UV resistant I have even used them on his shirt when we go to the park as sometimes he gets hot and take it off. This stops others from taking it.



Shoe labels these are made to fit inside the heel of the shoes and I can tell you they work.

Then we had some shoe labels and I used them on all his shoes so we would not have to go through thousands of them when we go to the Jump Parks or to Mc Donald's. This saved us time as all we had to do was look for the shoes that had labels on them.



Fun Stickers are ones they can use to label anything and just have fun with.

Charlie liked these the best as I let him have them and told him he could label anything he liked. Who would have ever thought that would mean labeling me, his dad and his dog but he said he wanted people to know we belonged to him. Kids whatcha gonnna do with them? Except LOVE them? LOL


Press and Stick Clothing Dots are so you can label there  clothes.

I used this for Charlies Bathing Suit as he went to camp and a lot of the boys had the same suit he had. I also used them for his T Shirts and Jeans as he likes to spend the night with his friend and they have some of the same clothes. This way I did not have to worry about them getting them mixed up. If your child attends school or a day care you should check into them.


Iron-ons these are for there jackets and sweaters and things.

Charlie used his on not only his jacket but all of his Hoodies as well.


Then we also had some Allergy Alert  Labels but since Charlie dose not have Allergies at this time I put them up as you never know if he will develop  them or not as his dad did.


Original Bag Tags these are for Back Packs and things as they can hook onto anything.

Charlie is so funny he used his to hook to Lucy his puppies collar and then took it off and hooked it to his bike.



Mini-Metal Tags these can be used for Duffle Bags and Key Chains.

Since Charlie has been wanting his own key to our house I used the one we received for this. But I will purchase more as these would go great on his back pack and help him identify it as so many kids end up with the same ones.

Lovable Labels Back To School pack came out with 8 new designs this year but is only around for a limited time so you need to make it a point and order yours soon.

Movies Anyone

Today I would like to talk to you about a site called IndieFlix this is a site where you can steam movies. I found the site through Tomoson. IndieFlix let me use there site in exchange for a review. So I would like to let you know even though I used there site that all the thoughts in the review where mine and mine alone.


I am not one who normally watches movies as I have a 5 year old who likes to talk through them so when I was given a chance to try out this site and to watch them on the computer I jumped at it. I figured this would allow me to take a break now and then and hide in my office and relax.

Did that work of course not as one day I was watching one of the movies and my son walks in and ask what I was doing. I told him I was working and watching a movie for it. So next thing I know he grabs his blanket and pillow and climbs up beside me to watch the movie with me.

It was nice to just sit and cuddle with him without a lot of interruptions but since David was supposed to have been watching him and Charlie disappeared on him he ended up coming into my office to see if he was with me.

Once he did and found out we was watching a movie he decided to join us. In a way that was nice but there went my me time. But that was OK as I was able to show them some of the movies and they found some they liked as well as I did.

I will be subscribing to the service as it makes it nice when Charlie and I go to work with daddy as he can watch a movie or if he has to go to work with me he can do the same thing. I also like that using the computer to watch the movies means I can take it with us when we take trips.

I liked the wide variety of shows they have to see as I found some all of us would like to watch. With David working all night he can watch a movie on the computer now in the office and not wake Charlie and I up. This is going to be wonderful as Charlie will start school soon and not be disturbed in the middle of the night.

Here is one of the movies I think I would enjoy.





Charlie would enjoy these two.







Now for David I can not tell you what he would or would not like as he is so different from me but what I can tell you is that I would not be surprised if he did not sit down and watch every single movie on here as he is that big a fan of the movies and tv.

If you have not heard of IndieFlex I hope you take the time to check it out as it is so easy to use and it has such a wide variety of films that there is something for everyone.

They evern offer Gift Memberships which would make a nice Gift for those on your Gift Giving list who love movies as much as you do.

If you are looking for a way to earn some extra cash then you should check into there affiliate program.

If you do make a purchase to the site you can use your membership on up to 5 devices. I like this as I am not always on the same computer.

You can even use this on your X Box.

Product Description
The Juppy "Momentum" is a solution to a previously recognized but unsolved challenge for parents of babies beginning to walk. Babies strong enough to begin walking but not strong enough to walk alone. The Juppy builds confidence in your baby and teaches balance while you maintain your natural posture, eliminating the grueling task of hunching over while teaching your baby to walk. The Juppy has easily adjustable straps that accommodate your height whether you are 4'11" or 6'11". The Juppy comes standard with soft hand grips that are strategically placed to provide optimum benefit for your hands; a color matched state of the art zipper is located at the rear of The Juppy for the purpose of safety, easy access and exit. You will find two Velcro straps that overlap the back zipper which again shows our commitment to providing you the safest and most practical baby walker on the market. Unlike traditional baby walkers The Juppy is a parent assisted baby walker which eliminates all of the dangers of walkers with wheels. The unique design eliminates the problems associated with similar products for example other parent assisted walkers do not have the crotch piece which is essential in keeping your baby from involuntarily lifting its arms. No more falling down stairs or reaching for dangerous objects because The Juppy requires your assistance at all times- One size fits all (baby weight not to exceed 35lbs). Made from 100% cotton that is machine washable.



I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

David's Birthday

Bon App├ętit!

Davids Birthday is this Friday and so this morning when the little one got up with me we decided that we would browse online for some items we could purchase for his Birthday. So since we are in the new house I decided that we could look for some knives for him as he loves to cook and has been saying we need some nice ones. Since we have gotten married this is not something we have ever bought for ourselves.

So I found a new store I had not looked at before and it is called Bon Appeetit and I must tell you they have such a huge variety of items that I could have stayed all day looking and never gotten tired. I asked Charlie what he thought of the store and he said the same thing I did.

I asked him if he found anything for his dad as we wet through all the catagories on the store and he said he not only found items for his dad but also for his Aunt for Christms and for his granny as well. I asked if he found anything for himself and he said "well of cours". Then I asked if he found something for me and he said he could not say as it would not be a surprise. So I am sure that was a yes.

Charlie and I clicked on the bar section for David and also the Coffee section but they said coming as they are expanding and that is OK as it gives us something to look forward to.

Here is the knives I found for him but if this is not your style of knives then you can visit this link  as there is many more on there.  It is called the Guide Delta Series Steak Knives. http://bonappetitcookware.com/collections/cutlery

4 pc. set

Once on the site I saw a coupon off on the knives and so now would be a wonderful time to purchase them. If you are like me and like to save money. Plus before we know it Christmas will be here and you will need lots of Gifts.

Lemon Green
My dad has been wanting a new skillet to cook Fried Chicken in and I found this one on the site and there is a lid to it. So this would make a wonderful Gift for him. If you are not found of green it comes in other colors but I think it is a fun color.

Just from Bon Appetit alone I will be able to purchase everything I need in my kitchen and I will have top quality products and not have to worry about them falling apart and replacing them in a year like I do the ones we have now.

So before I give away everything on the site I would just like to ask for you to visit it. Once you do let me know what you found that you can not live with out. As I have a coupon you can use to save on the purchases you make

Please help

Dear Friends,
A friend of mine is collecting items for the Pediatric Heart Unit at Medical City Children’s Hospital in Dallas.  I have committed to donating some of the new Avon baby and children items, and I wanted to reach out to see if any of you would be interested in either doing the same or donating other items on the list. Plus, all of your donations will be reported to Champions For Kids for their Spin Into Action campaign with Kid’s Spinbrush, which means your donation will be matched, up to 1000 items, by a fun toothbrush for children in need!  The blog that is collecting these items is also willing to list you as a donor and link to your website, if applicable. 
Many people don’t realize how many items aren’t provided by the hospital, items that help these sick and recovering babies and children stay comfortable and get better!  Here’s a few of the needed items:
·         WubbaNubs :: These pacifiers with connected stuffed animals are great for babies recovering for surgery, as they are often too weak to suck hard enough to keep a pacifier in their mouths. These little animals help keep the pacifier in place for when baby is ready to suck. Since pacifiers help these babies feel comfortable though pain, the WubbaNubs are a pretty hot necessity.
·         DVDs :: DVDs are a great distraction and boredom buster for these bed-ridden children. While they have a fairly large selection, they are missing many highly requested movies, including the Disney classics, Disney Princess movies, and the most requested: Cars.
·         Spinbrush Toothbrushes :: Come to find out, the Spinbrush products are actually wonderful for the toddlers and up for many reasons. First, the children are able to take control of their health and get back into the practice of caring for themselves, which is very important. Second, brushing teeth is an activity that nurses can use to get the children to sit up out of bed. Third, the thick handles are easier for weak, post-surgery hands to hold and operate, causing less frustration. You can find coupons and more information on Spinbrush’s website.

·         Baby Leg Warmers, Socks, and Mittens :: Many of the babies in the Heart Unit came straight from delivery. With all the tubes and cords, they are unable to wear clothing, yet they still get cold. Baby Legs function to add warmth without hindering the medical equipment.
·         Quality Bubbles :: Bubbles are not only fun for the kids, they are actually very beneficial to healing as it gets the children to take a deep breath and expel air. The cheap-o bubbles are often watered down and can be frustrating to the children, so make sure you are getting quality bubbles.
·         Lullaby CDs :: The Lullaby CDs are a great tool to help children and babies stay comfortable and sleep a little better.


·         Newborn Headbands :: This item makes me want to cry. Newborn size headbands with flowers and bows are needed items, as many parents fear that the first time their baby meets family and friends may also be their last, and they are concerned that their baby looks as pretty as possible, despite all the tubes and cords.
·         Clip-on Mobiles :: Since most of the babies are not in regular cribs, traditional mobiles aren’t always an option. Mobiles that can clip on to the surgical lights overhead are a hot item.
·         Underwear :: Many of the children that end up in the Heart Unit come from the Emergency Room, with nothing but the clothes they came in. With nothing but a hospital gown on, children can feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.
·         General Toys :: Toys are always popular in the Heart Unit. For example, the one plastic doll house is a much requested item.
·         Crayons, Glue, Scissors, Markers, Dry Erase Markers (washable, scent free), etc. :: Craft supplies are always needed. There is often a shortage of crayons and glue. These art supplies are also used by nurses to help children portray their feelings and even communicate when unable to speak.
·         Treasure Box Goodies :: It is difficult for the nurses to get children up and walking, so there is a treasure box with high-quality toys to reward children who get out and roaming the hallways. Since these items aren’t shared, there is a little more flexibility in what you can give, but the hospital likes to keep quality items in this box to make sure there is ample incentive.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you in advance for your consideration.

I miss you

Today is a day I am struggling to work. I am missing my daughter so much today it is unreal. In the past two weeks I joined a new Candle Company and they have a candle called Tulip which is her favorite flower and they had one in pink which she would have loved. I can not wait until I am able to purchase one. It was nice as God directed me to the company and it was only $1 to join.




Then the other day I was on Facebook and a lady named Jodie Cooper emailed me to see if I would like to conduct a review for her from her company. Jodie is with Bath-Ologie and you can check it out at http://www.bathologie.com/ If Suzzane was here I know with out a doubt we would be checking out some of the items as they allow you to make your own Perfumes and these would have made wonderful Gifts.

I was thinking today it would be fun to design one with Suzzane's name on it to give to my mom and my sister for Christmas. As well as for my niece and step daughter with there names on it as this is something they have never had.



I love the fact that you can host a party and earn free items or that you can start your own business and teach others how to make there own perfumes. If I had the money I would think about joining as I have not seen it in Texas. Which would be nice as it is always good to get in on the Ground Floor of a company.



When Jodie wrote me and told me about the products and how they worked I knew it would be something I would share with my friends and family. I have not tried any of the products as of yet but I hope to in the future. They have so many different products that it would be hard to just pick out one to try but if I did I would go for a scrub as I love them.
