This time, I am excited to be able to share the NEW Purex Triple Action laundry detergent with you. Purex is rolling out a new Triple Action formula this winter.

It has a new and improved Triple Action formula and it delivers Purex’s promise to always leave your clothes bright, white, and clean. Not only is this liquid formula new and improved but the bottle designs have all received an updated look too.

For review purposes, I have received a 50 fluid ounce bottle of the New and Improved Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent in the Mountain Breeze scent. I love the way that this Purex Laundry Detergent works and it leaves my clothes smelling fresh all day long. I can also appreciate that you can get 33 loads of laundry out of this small of a bottle. My favorite part is that the NEW Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent is safe for all machines including HE, so that means that we all pay the same low price for our liquid detergent. To sum it all up nicely I would say that the NEW Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent leaves my clothes smelling nice, looking bright and it is budget friendly.

NEW Frosted Toast Crunch Giveaway CLOSED

I am a member of myblogspark and they have teamed up with General Mills for this fun review and giveaway opportunity. They have asked me to introduce the NEW Frosted Toast Crunch to you. For hosting this review and giveaway I have received a prize package that contains: a Spilt milk bowl, a Lickety spoon, a Frosted pitcher and Frosted Toast Crunch cereal. One of my lucky readers who enters this giveaway will receive the same prize package that I received. Yay!



My family and I enjoy having cereal for breakfast, especially on school mornings. I like that cereal is quick to fix and if we are in a pinch for time, the kids can eat it dry on the way to school or even put a baggie of it in their backpack for morning break in their classroom. Cereal is fun to eat and it gives them the boost that they need to keep on going.

I am excited about the NEW Frosted Toast Crunch. It has a delicious taste of frosted vanilla (frosted vanilla coating is artificially flavored) which makes it totally irresistible in my book. One bite of the new Frosted Toast Crunch will have you and your kids asking for more. Each crunch square is baked with the great taste of frosted vanilla (frosted vanilla coating is artificially flavored) and they are dusted with a delicious dash of cinnamon. My favorite part is that each serving of Frosted Toast Crunch has 11 grams of whole grain, 9 grams of sugar and it's a good source of calcium. Not only does it taste great but it is good for you. You may not see the NEW Frosted Toast Crunch in your store today but look for it in early January.

Giveaway time: One of my readers who enters this giveaway through the Rafflecopter form below will win a prize pack that contains: a Spilt milk bowl, a Lickety spoon, a Frosted pitcher and Frosted Toast Crunch cereal. Good luck!

Spongeables PEDI SCRUB Review And Giveaway CLOSED


I am a member of tomoson and they have teamed up with Spongeables PEDI SCRUB for this fun review and giveaway opportunity. I enjoy trying new products and I wanted to share this one with you.

Do you have tired, achy or less than pretty feet? If so, then you may want to try out the new Spongeables PEDI SCRUB. Spongeables® Pedi-Scrub™ is a mini spa for your feet and the best part is is that you can enjoy this affordable treatment at home over and over again.

One side of the Spongeables PEDI SCRUB foot buffer is soft and gentle. It is infused with soap and aromatic botanicals that will leave your feet feeling clean, soft and smelling nice too. The other side of the buffer is where the working action takes place. It is pure bliss as you use it and it makes your feet do the happy dance when you are finished. This side of the buffer is made to buff away dry and rough skin on your heels, toes and soles. It even shines up the toenails and exfoliates dry skin away while you use it. Pedi-Scrub’s scrubbing texture even provides a stimulating massage while it revives tired feet and leaves them feeling tingling all over. The best part is that the buffer may be used for 20+ washes making this at home spa treatment very affordable.

The Spongeables PEDI SCRUB come in two appealing fragrance choices: aromatic Lavender & Tea Tree Oil (pink), or revitalizing Citron-Eucalyptus (green). I have received the green Citron-Eucalyptus Aromatherapy 4 in 1 Spongeables PEDI SCRUB foot buffer for this review. I love that it can cleanse, exfoliate, massage and moisturize all at the same time. This buffer uses glycerin, olive oil, shea butter and eucalyptus extract to work its magic. After one use I can tell a difference in my feet. They are softer, smoother and feel rejuvenated now. I love that the buffer is specially formulated to gently remove hard skin without having to cut it or file it down and it also deodorizes stinky feet while being gentle enough to use daily. Pedi-Scrubs™ are available at drug, discount and chain stores around the world (MSR $6.99) or you may visit their website at www.spongeables.com. I can see that I need to buy 3 more Spongeables PEDI SCRUBS for the rest of my family.


Giveaway time: One winner who enters this giveaway on the Rafflecopter form will win their choice of one Pedi Scrub. They may choose from Lavender (pink)or Eucalyptus(green). Good Luck! Sponsored by Tomoson.com

Tylers Coffee Review And Giveaway CLOSED


I am a member of Tomoson and they have teamed up with Tyler's Coffee for this review opportunity. I am an avid coffee drinker and I always love to try new brands and share them with you. I have received a 2 oz "Perk Pack" of Tyler's Coffee to try.


You may be asking "Why is Tyler's Coffee different and why should I buy it instead of my current brand?" I would answer that by saying, Tyler’s Coffee is unique as it uses a “Z-Roasting” process that optimizes the time that the coffee beans are cooked. The result in using this roasting method is that it produces a coffee with high levels of caffeine and the coffee is free of acid. There are health benefits of using an acid free coffee too. Your tooth enamel is protected and your teeth are stronger which leads to fewer cavities. Also a little cup of coffee can mean big problems for people with sensitive stomachs. The acid levels in regular coffee may upset the digestive tract for some people and Tyler's Coffee says that their customers with sensitive stomachs are relieved to learn that they can still continue enjoying a great cup of coffee whenever they want, without the worry of their stomachs paying for it later.


Since Tyler's Coffee is acid free, they advise you to use purified water to brew Tylers Coffee. This will give the coffee a truer, cleaner taste. The best part is that you can use a traditional drip coffee maker to prepare your coffee in. There are no special machines needed.






Giveaway Time: One person who enters this giveaway will win a package from Tyler's Coffee. Please enter this giveaway on the rafflecopter form below. Good luck! Sponsored by Tomoson.com

Gift Cards Make Great Gifts

I am a member of SocialMoms and they have teamed up with Gift Cards Rock for this great posting opportunity.

If you are like me then you are sure to have a few people on your gift list who are hard to buy for or seem to have everything. This is when I turn to the handy dandy gift card and use them as a gift. Personally, I like to give gift cards because the recipient can then choose what they would like to get with the money and you are able to please them and stay on budget at the same time. For one thing, gift cards are a perfect "one size fits all" gift. You don't have to worry about it being the right color, style or size. The only thing that you might think about is what type of gift card to give them. Would you like to send the recipient to the store on a shopping trip or out to eat for a nice meal out? I love to cook but I really do appreciate a restaurant gift card. To me, this means no cooking, no cleaning up and no mess. I simply get to enjoy my meal and relax while someone else caters to me, and to me, that's priceless when you are "the mom".

Gift cards are my favorite gift to receive. When I receive gift cards, I tend to save them for a rainy day and use them for something special that is just for me. Gift cards are small and easy to tuck away until they are needed. I like to give gift cards in Christmas stockings or in a gift card. Once I even gave my mom a gift card that was attached to a card on a miniature rose bush. The gift card was for Mother's Day and she was able to use it to buy her spring flowers and gardening equipment for the outside of her home that year.

To me gift cards are a way of saying "I really do want you to be happy with your gift so I am letting you choose it for yourself." Gift cards can be personalized when you put them in with a heart felt note inside of a greeting card. I like to write the dollar amount on the gift cards that I give. This may seem a little impersonal but I like the recipient to know exactly what they have in their hand, before they get to the check out.

Either way you go, whether you choose to give a restaurant gift card or a shopping gift card, I believe that your gift will be appreciated and used on something that won't be returned back to the store.

Kool-Aid

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kool Aid for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a member of SocialSpark and they have teamed up with Kool-Aid for this fun posting opportunity.  My family and I enjoy Kool-Aid and I thought that this would be a fun post to share with you.

Tonight while my seven year old daughter and I were watching television, I asked her "What do you think about Kool-Aid?"   Her response was "Kool-Aid is fun to drink.  It taste good and I like it."  I said, "Yes, I like it too."  As an adult I like Kool-Aid because it is water based and it helps our children to get their daily water intake in.  I also like  Kool-Aid because it is easy to make, inexpensive and has many flavors to choose from.  As a child, I liked Kool-Aid because it was fun too.  I can remember my mom making us Kool-Aid pops to enjoy during the summer.  We would always use my favorite flavor,  the cherry red Kool-Aid, and pour it in the little bathroom sized paper cups and stick a popsicle stick in them when they were half way frozen.  After hours and hours, or so it seemed, the popsicles would be frozen solid enough for us to enjoy them.  Believe me, I was the coolest kid on the block when I brought the Kool-Aid pops outside.  Everyone became my best friend because I shared.  Sharing is fun, especially when Kool-Aid is involved.     

For more Kook-Aid fun, you can visit their facebook fan page and download a money saving coupon.  You click on the tab that says "Noches de PeliKoola" for a sweet Kool-Aid savings.  If you don't speak Spanish, then you may find it easier to click the button with the $ money sign that says "Quiero Mi Cupรณn"  meaning  I Want My Coupon.  You may also visit the "Bingo Card" feature on the "Noches de PeliKoola"       tab.  Each movie specific bingo card can be played during the Sunday night movie and it has a fun Kool-Aid recipe for you to try.   You might even decide to make a fun, family friendly Kool-Aid recipe and enjoy your treat while watching "Noches de Pelicula" on Telemundo with your family.

Don't forget to check out the Kool-Aid website for some great recipes. I am excited to the Super Fruity Kool Kubes, and Double-Berry Smoothies with my children and husband.  Do you see any recipes that you would like to try?  I would love it if you would share your fun Kool-Aid moments with me in a comment.

Charm Factory Review And Giveaway CLOSED


I have always loved the look of the more expensive European style bracelets and have been unable to afford them until now. This is why I am so happy to have found the new European Style Bracelets and Beads from the Charm Factory. The Charm Factory uses silver plated brass, lead free pewter and glass to make these lovely beaded bracelets that are assembled right here in the USA. You may choose your bracelet from the premade designs on their site or you may use the individual silver tone Luv Link beads, Murano glass beads and bracelets to create your own personalized piece of jewelry. Either way you go, the results will be beautiful.

For my review, I had a hard time choosing my favorite bracelet so I decided to
choose the Cross Bracelet for my daughter. I love the contrast of the pink and blue glass beads and I adore the cross that gently embellishes it. I am most fond of the fact that this bracelet is not only safe but it was also made here in the USA. This is a beautiful gift that is stylish, has meaning and will be cherished for years to come. My daughter is only 7 now but I can see her wearing this bracelet well through her teen years.

Christmas is only 11 days away. Have you finished all of your shopping or do you still need a few special items? If you answered yes to needing a few more items then you may be interested in taking a look at the Charm Factory to see what they have to offer.

Introducing Norton Small Business By Symantec

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Norton Small Business by Symantec for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

NortonLogo_white.jpg

I am a member of SocialSpark and they have teamed up with Norton Small Business by Symantec for this posting opportunity.  I chose to take on this blogging project because we are in the market for a new lap top  which will need a security system and our older pc is in need of protection also.

New Message-494

Are you a small business owner who is in the need of computer protection?  Or maybe you have a home office that is in need of protection?  If so, you may be happy to know that the 2012 Norton Small Business products now available for 30% off of regular price. 

Norton understands that small business owners work hard to get where they are today and they want to help you to protect your business.  They understand that technology is the backbone of any small business and that small businesses need a sense of security at all times.  Norton is pleased to be able to help you protect your computer and business while offering you their products, mainly the 5U/10U items, at a discount rate. 

New Message

As a consumer, I understand that computer protection is necessary in this age of technology use.  I can only imagine how vital that sense of security is for small businesses also.  Customers share so much private information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc over the internet and it's the businesses job to keep that information safe.  One bad hack could put both the business and customer in jeopardy and I believe that Norton understand this and wants to protect both parties from malware.   This is where the Norton 360 comes in handy.   The Norton 360 checks where files come from and helps to identify and stop crimeware before it attacks your computer.  It also provides fast protection while it doesn't slow down your computers performance.  The Norton 360 even automatically backs up files to disk, usb, or secure Norton online data centers.  It amazes me that you get all of these items in one product.

Crayola Innovative Holiday Prize Pack Giveaway CLOSED

I am a member of myblogspark and they have teamed up with Crayola for this fun review and giveaway opportunity. For participating, I have received a 4 pack of wonderful Crayola products to review and one of my readers who enters this giveaway will receive the same products that I have received. Yay!





The holidays are already here and the Crayola Holiday Gift Guide is a great place to look when shopping for gifts for children. The holiday gift guide has colorful gift suggestions for children ages 3 and up. I love the Crayola brand because they inspire creativity and spur imaginations with their products. Their gifts are affordable too and come in many different price ranges.

With this review, I was happy to learn that I would be trying the Jewelry Boutique, Glow Book, 150-ct Crayon Tower and the Ultimate Art Supplies case. My daughter is 7 and very creative. She was happy to try these out for me.

The Crayola Jewelry Boutique comes with a Jewelry Spinner that turns small amounts of Crayola Model Magic into unique swirled beads. The beads that you make allow you and your child to create fun and fabulous accessories on your own. You can make items such as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, pins and more with the Crayola Jewelry Boutique. My daughter loved that she could use her unique sense of style to create her own jewelry to wear. She was able to choose the colors of her beads and how she combined them to create her own customized accessories. My daughter was so proud of herself that she plans on using a few of her finished pieces as gifts for her friends.

The Crayola Glow Book is fun also. It uses special glowing-ink markers, tracing guides and clear pages to help your child create moving, glowing art. Your child can either use the tracing guides or draw a picture of their own for a one of a kind personalized design. Once the artwork is complete, they can turn the lights out and watch their art come alive on each page. My daughter enjoyed her Glow Book and was amazed at how her creations came to life and moved. I enjoyed the Glow Book because it gave my daughter hours of enjoyment and she was able to use it on her own.

Crayola’s Telescoping Crayon Tower and Ultimate Art Supply Case were my daughters dream come true! She loves to color and the 150 count Crayola Crayons - The Telescoping Crayon Tower™ allows her to store her crayons nicely and it even comes with a built-in sharpener. The Ultimate Art Supply Case is filled with crayons and all of the classic art tools for drawing, painting and creating. Kids can share their creativity through colorful works of art and even use it to make gifts for others this holiday season. I like that this kit contains crayons, washable broad line markers, colored pencils, washable watercolors, a paint brush, school glue, scissors, and colored paper. I can see my daughter using these items to make her own Christmas cards this year.

Prefense Non-Alcohol Hand Santizer Review and Giveaway CLOSED



I am a member of tomoson and they have teamed up with Prefense Non-Alcohol Hand Santizer for this review and giveaway opportunity. I have received a 1.5 fluid ounce sample of their product so that I may try it for myself and provide an honest review for you. One of my readers who enters this giveaway will receive a big 8 ounce bottle of Prefense so that they may try it out too.

I like that Prefense contains all natural ingredients and that there is no alcohol in it. To me, this means that Prefense is safe and non-toxic for kids. I also like that I don't have to worry about traditional hand sanatizers that dry out my children's delicate skin because Prefense is silica based. Prefense smooths and softens while protecting your skin at the same time. I can appreciate that a single use of Prefense protects me and my children for 24 hours or equal to 10 hand washings. I feel good knowing that Prefense can be applied to my childrens hands when they wake up in the morning and the protection will last all day. They are protected from germs even when they are at school and away from me. The best part is that Prefense protects us against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more. As a mom, this is a reassurance that I need especially during cold and flu season.

If you would like to try Prefense you may find it on their website. The cost is lower here than it would be in other retail stores. Prefense is sold on amazon too. You may also find Prefense on facebook and on twitter.
