I am in LOVE....with STITCH FIX!!!!

disclaimer:  I received nothing from the company in exchange for this post.  All opinions remain my own.


  Have you ever wanted your own personal know, just like the celebrities.  Well now you can have that and more with STITCH FIX.  

  STITCH FIX is a clothing delivery company that sends you items for your wardrobe based on your own personal style profile.  The items are selected by your own stylist who even include a note with why they chose what they did and ideas for wearing items together.  

  Each shipment costs $20 for stylist fee but the fee is deducted from your total if you choose to keep any of the items shipped.  Also if you decide to keep all the items in your shipment, you will receive a 25% discount.  

  You can select how often you want your shipments, what price ranges you prefer, and you even get to let your stylist know exactly what you are looking for.  

  Right now STITCH FIX is giving new members $25 for signing up.  If you go here you will receive $25 and so will I : )

  Mommy in PA:  So I recently won a gift card for STITCH FIX which is why I actually tried it in the first place...let me tell you, I am so glad I did.

  My stylist, Marissa really had her hands full with my "FIX" as I wasn't exactly sure what I was looking for.  I gave her some ideas and was actually surprised her choices were pretty close to my style.  I only ended up keeping the jeans from my  shipment but my decision to return the other items and why will help them narrow it down next time.  I was even able to select to keep the same stylist or let them choose another, how cool is that?!?!

 This one was actually my favorite outfit but shirt requires a strapless bra...which honestly, I have yet to find one I I mentioned that in my feedback...we shall see : )

  Oh and they don't just have clothing...there are shoes, jewelry, bras, underwear, and handbags.  The bras and underwear are add on items that you can have shipped with your "fix".  

  Price range for the items I received was between $34 to $78.  Items are of great quality though, so worth the extra cost.

  Now you can also set up accounts for your kiddos.  I did this for my fourteen year old son, and let me tell you...they did a wonderful job.  He received 10 items (I was jealous, lol) and there were only two shirts we weren't crazy about...but, with the 25% discount it ended up being cheaper to keep every item than to send those two back : )

 I love the red shirt with the blue trim!!!  My son loves the jeans.  I let the stylist know he loves sweatpants but needed to find some alternatives for school and they sent jeans that are actually as comfy as sweatpants...said it right on the tag : )

  I am going to do one more shipment for him before school starts (they even have an option to rush your next fix) and we should have enough new items for him for back to school.  

  Oh and the greatest thing...price ranges for his items were from $12 to $24 very reasonable for the amazing quality : ) 

Can't wait to get our next shipments!!!!

Cave Tools BBQ Grill Light

disclaimer:  I received the following product for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Cave Tools BBQ Grill Light

  So the one downfall of typical grills is that sometimes, depending on where you are using yours, there is limited light due to the way they are constructed.  It is so much easier to cook when you can see what you are doing so the folks over at Cave Tools came up with a solution...The Cave Tools BBQ Grill Light!!!

  Using over 100+ Lumens the Cave Tools BBQ Grill Light will light up your entire grill area.  It is made to fit circular or rectangular grill handles and is fully adjustable to work in any position.  It is also water and heat resistant (always a good idea for a grill accessory) and comes in a cute box for storage and/or gift giving.

  And remember the folks over at Cave Tools always include a free gift with purchase.  This time it is a Free online Barbecue Recipe Book.   And don't forget the lifetime satisfaction guarantee.

  Mommy in PA:  So we have a bit of a issue when grilling as our grill sits on our porch which is pretty dark.  The grill light really helped in being able to see things much better.  It was super easy to install, just unscrew the bracket until it fits around your grill handle and then screw it back in to tighten until snug.  It uses three double A batteries (not included) but they were nice enough to thrown in a little screwdriver : )

  It took us a minute (we actually had to read the directions) to figure out how to turn it on but once we knew it was just by tapping the Cave Tools symbol on the top, it was a breeze : )  

  After using it on the grill I got to thinking about how it would work great on other things, like a bicycle, or in a dark closet that you need to light up, basically anything with a bar to mount it on.  It really did a great job at lighting up the grill.  Be sure to use promo code BBQLIGHT15 to receive 15% off your order!!!

  Thanks again Cave Tools for another amazing product!!!

There's a bunch of info we wanted ya'll to know about Color Street...sorry for all the pictures but we really think it will help you know what they are all about : )

So pretty much everybody....

See...quick and simple : )

The company is splitting up $900,000 towards these five causes and a special nail strip will be coming out for each in the appropriate month : )

See all the colors/patterns on Holley's Nai1 Garden page : )

This is not us LOL : )

Mommy in GA:  I wish these had been around when my girls were would have been zero nail polish cleanup out of clothes, sheets, floors and wherever else they managed to spill the bottles of nail polish lol.

Color Street nails go on super easy and look great! They carry Solids, French tip,glitter,patterns and can also mix and match them! No dry time which is amazing because as a mom I know I personally am always grabbing things from the little one or doing things for the bigger ones!

Acrylics are great and look pretty but always seem to grow out so fast and being one half of the moneysavingmommiesx2 you know how it hate to spend money! You can apply Color Street to stretch out your fill in time without worrying about people looking at anything other than your fabulous color!

Mommy in PA:  These were Awesome!!!!  I used to do my nails all the time but lately it just seems to be more work than it is worth.  The Color Street nails took almost all of the work part away : )  

I was a little nervous at first because I had tried other nail decal like things before but with little success.  Needless to say they wouldn't last very long and were very stiff and hard to line up.  Color Street was very easy and at almost two days in at this point it still looks amazing.  I am doing the challenge though so I will update when I know more.

My daughter did have issues applying her first one...note, do not try applying over old polish lol.  She did get it right the second time though.

My dad would have loved it if these would have been around when I was younger, he HATED the smell of nail polish to the point that if he was home I had to do my nails outside.  The Color Street are odor free!!!

Travelwise Packing Cubes

disclaimer:  We received the products below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.

Travelwise Packing Cubes

  With nicer weather finally upon us.  That leads us to thinking about camping, fishing, traveling with our families on vacation, etc.  And what's the one thing you also have to consider during these extended trips with the family...luggage. 

  Most of us end up just tossing things in suitcases, duffel bags, backpacks, etc. and wishing we had a better way to separate things to make it easier to retrieve just what you need instead of emptying the whole bag or case for just a couple of items. 

  Well lucky for all of us, Travelwise Packing Cubes seem like a great alternative to the cluttered mess.

  Each set contains five different sized zippered bags made of lightweight, durable nylon. And the open mesh panels make it easy to see what's inside and allows for breathablilty for your clothing items.  

  They also come in five color choices (black, purple, red, silver, or teal).  

You can see more about them on EatSmart's website or Amazon.  Or you can check them out on social media

Instagram: #travelwise Tag: @eatsmartproducts

  Mommy in GA:
 Got the grey travelwise packing cubes and LOVE them!! As a mom of 5 we are always in a hurry and always TRYING to stay organized lol.
The first time I used these we went camping and so you pack all of your stuff....snacks for the car and campground and your sunblock, bathing suits, toiletries etc....

I used the smallest cube for bug spray, Kleenex, bandaids, Tylenol etc..
The next on shampoo and conditioner and soaps
The next size I used for toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant (did I mention I have 5 kids๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚)
Snacks for the car in the next size up and in the last one I used it to keep bathing suits together (wet/dry!!)

It was amazing because I knew exactly what to grab and all the little items were in the same saved a lot of time and whining๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

  Mommy in PA: The Travelwise Packing Cubes are something I didn't even realize I needed!!!  These are now going to be part of every trip we take.  Having a child who is a Type 1 Diabetic means that we always have extra supplies in tow, whether we will be gone a couple days or a couple of hours.

I packed our bags in the pictures as if we were going on a day trip to go swimming.  There was actually plenty enough room to add a couple outfits per person or I could have actually packed all of our beach towels in the largest bag and put some of our clothes together, but I wanted to keep each persons stuff in their own bag to see if it would all fit, and it did : )

These bags are going to go on a ton of fishing trips with us so that I can keep my son's testing supplies separated from our food, and also we sometimes take along changes of clothing in case the weather decides to change on us, so these will work perfectly!

I also love how when you are done with these you just fold them up and stick them inside the biggest one and then you can chuck it into your suitcase, closet, drawer, wherever until you need them again : )  And they don't take up hardly any space at all.

Paper House Puzzles - Christmas in July Gift Idea #2

disclaimer:  We received the products below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.

Paper House Puzzles

  If you are looking for a great last minute gift idea.  Paper House Puzzles may have exactly what you are looking for.

  And don't be fooled by their name, they sell other things too like stickers, scrapbook supplies, cards, journals, magnets, and much more.  
  We got a chance to try out their floor puzzles and here is what we thought:

  Mommy in GA: these are awesome!!!  My big kids pull them out to play with the baby!! We love the dinosaur and fire truck!! I did give the castle and puppy one away as a gift (labeled the to and from right on the box because they made a spot for it!!) The kids all love them....when my nieces and nephews show up they pull them out and put them together.... I love how big they are (it is REALLY hard to lose the pieces to these!!) I am excited to check out more products because they are a very sturdy product as well!!

  Mommy in PA:  Ok I just want to start with the first thing I noticed when I looked at the boxes...they actually have the "to and from" label on them already so gift giving is made that much simpler.  This would be a wonderful idea for a grandparent to give their grandchildren every year because the child will know who it was from the whole time they have it.  

  I also have to mention that these are high quality puzzle pieces.  We have never had any issues with the pieces bending or having those annoying frayed edges like some others do.  

 The dinosaur one was our favorite : )

  Even my twelve year old enjoyed putting them together, this totally surprised me as he is a major computer addict, but this gave us some good quality time as we turned it into a game of "how fast can we put these together : )

  My only disappointment was the fact that these puzzles don't have the shapes in them like the other ones we did.  But other than that they were a blast.

Kristine's Shower - Christmas in July Gift Idea #1

disclaimer:  We received the following products for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.

  Kristine's Shower

  If you are still looking for the perfect gift for that special lady in your life or perhaps a mother who has no idea what to get her daughter, then we recommend you checking out the products over at Kristine's Shower.

  Kristine's Shower offers a huge assortment of homemade products.  Shower Bombs, Bath Bombs, Bubblecakes, soaps, body sorbets, aloe vera body whips, and body frosting.  She even has product varieties for the kids and the guys.

  Kristine's Shower was kind enough to send us each a variety of products to try out and here are our thoughts:

  Mommy in GA:If you are a bath kinda gal or  guy......keep reading❤❤.  If you just like to pamper yourself like a spa but in the privacy of your own home at a fraction of the cost? 

Again keep reading๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜! 
We had the privilege to try bath bombs ,a sugar rub and a whipped body lotion! My skin felt amazing and I smelled delicious lol.

I have all the kids so they used the bath bombs and really liked them a lot, when they were gone the kids asked when we were going to get more!

The whipped lotion goes a long ways too and my skin was soooooo soft BUT
My favorite is the sugar scrub.....i used it from head to toe started with my face which helped with blemishes and used it on my legs which exfoliate and even helps if you have a pesky ingrown hair all the way to your feet if you have a rough patch and the sunset colors and tropical scent make you forget you are in your own home scrubbing your feet you used to chase after your 5 kids all day...very relaxing!!!

  Mommy in PA:  Ok so even without looking at who sent the package I could tell what it was....that whoosh of scent when you open the box is just heavenly.  She always packages things so pretty with the tissue paper and you can tell she truly cares about making her customers feel pampered : )  

  My favorite product to try this time was the Shea Butter Body Frosting...this stuff is AMAZING!!!!  I don't know if my skin has ever felt that soft before, my husband even mentioned how smooth my legs were...couldn't keep his hands to himself lol : )  

  My favorite scent this time was the CocoVan.  It smells delicious lol, makes me think of a decadent dessert.  I got that in the Shea Butter Body Sorbet and it smells yummy : )  

  I also received a thing of the Aloe Vera Body Whip which is nice for my dry hands and feet and she sent along a good variety of bath bombs which I never get to try because my son LOVES them.  It is hilarious how much he likes these, claims them all as soon as they get here.  But I am ok with it because after he uses them in the bath then we get to enjoy how the house smells the rest of the evening.  We loved every scent : )  And the cupcake one with the elephant on it is adorable...not sure my son will use that one...he thinks he might be able to save the elephant lol : )

  So needless to say my household is HUGE Kristine's Shower Fans!!!!

  Now it did leave my hair feeling nice when it was dry but when I first rinsed it out it was making my hair feel like straw : (  My solution was to not leave it in the full two to three minutes that they recommend.  

  The scent is very nice and works for everyone in the household unlike some other brands.

Cave Tools Wing Rack

disclaimer:  I received the product below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Cave Tools Wing Rack

  Are you looking for a better way to cook your wings/drumsticks?  How about one tool that would allow you to cook your wings/drumsticks and veggies all at one time?  Then you need to check out Cave Tool's Barbecue Wing Rack & Drip Pan.

  Made out of stainless steel this Wing Rack can go many places...grill, smoker, or oven and then when you are done just pop it in the dishwasher.  It can hold up to twelve wings/drumsticks and the bottom drip pan can be used to catch drippings to make gravy or even add veggies to do an entire meal in one dish.  

  The rack also has a locking mechanism to keep it from collapsing during use.  And don't forget that lifetime satisfaction guarantee and as with all Cave Tool products you get free downloadable recipes.

  Mommy in PA:  This was not nearly as entertaining as the Beer Can Chicken that I wrote about last time but sure made cooking drumsticks a breeze  : )

  I got the larger size drumsticks that they recommend to do, if you use smaller ones there is a chance they can fall out of the rack during cooking.  I filled the whole rack and proceeded with cooking them.  When I was down to about the last ten minutes I coated my drumsticks with barbecue sauce.  

  As you will notice I do not have a final picture this time, I unfortunately was too busy cussing and cleaning up the mess that was all over the inside of my oven, my broiler door, my floor....ugh, I tipped it : (    Now keep in mind I had removed it from my oven multiple times before to check the chicken temperature and had no issues.  The product itself is made well and should not have tipped.  I think it was a combination of my luck running out and possibly I had quite a bit more weight on the one side.  

  All in all, the chicken we did get to eat turned out really good and I will be using this again real soon : )

  To get your very own Wing Rack you can head over to the Cave Tools Website or Amazon to get yours.  Use code WING15 to get 15% off your purchase : )

Cave Tools Beer Can Chicken

disclaimer:  I received the product below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Cave Tools Beer Can Chicken

  So whether you've already tried it or not, I am pretty sure you have at the very least heard of beer can chicken.  This typically involves an actual beer can and trying to keep the chicken from toppling over when you are cooking it with a open can of beer in places that no beer can wants to go.

  Well, Cave Tools has created a much easier and less messy way of doing this...introducing Cave Tools Beer Can Chicken...

  In just a few easy steps you will be cooking beer can chicken like a pro. First put your liquid of choice (I used lemon-lime soda for mine) into the "can".  Next you just insert the can into the holder and rotate a quarter of a turn to lock it into place.  Place the can holder onto the tray and get your bird ready for it's moment of shame.  Lift your bird by its wings and carefully lower it onto the can.  Last but not least don't forget to use your veggie holders to make some corn or potatoes along with your beer can chicken.  And finally can use your grill or even your oven like I did.  For the oven I just set a rack on the lowest position and preheated oven to 350 degrees.  It ended up taking about an hour and 45 minutes but I did a pretty big chicken.

Oh and be sure to send a picture to your friends/family cause once they see how hilarious this looks they will want one too 
: )

  The Chicken was extremely juicy...not only did I get a lot of juices in the drip tray to use for gravy but when I removed the chicken and laid it out on my platter there was more.  I can't wait to try some of the recipes they have for this.  Clean up was also a breeze, I just ran mine through the dishwasher.  

  Great product at a great price and now no more trying to balance a chicken on an actual can : )

To purchase your own Cave Tools Beer Can Chicken you can go here or head over to Cave Tools Website and use code BEERCAN15 to save 15% off your purchase : )

Derma E Scar Gel

disclaimer:  I am a Derma E Ambassador and received the following product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions remain my own.

  Derma E Scar Gel

   Derma E has skin care products for all kinds of skin issues...including scars.  

  The Derma E Scar Gel is made of a blend of botanical extracts that help soften, smooth, and diminish the appearance of scars.  It also helps with other skin hardening issues.  

  Mommy in PA:  So I was excited about the concept with the Scar Gel but the forgetful person in me is having a bit of a time remembering to apply it everyday....ok so everyday not an issue...twice a day...big issue.  I must admit that I am not great at my overall body skin care routine.  My facial skin care routine isn't shabby but I have never been good with the rest of my body.  

  I started out thinking I was gonna use the Scar Gel on my stretch marks.  Then I read that it could take three to six months to notice results and that I would have to apply it twice a day and I realized I didn't have that much product lol.  

  The reason it would take so long for the stretch marks is that they are older scars (almost thirteen years).  So I settled on using it on a smaller, newer scar on my arm.  Well the scar has gotten lighter but I am not sure if it was due to the Scar Gel or if it was due to my tan fading : (  And also this Scar Gel works best for lumpy, bumpy, and discolored scars and my arm one was only discolored)

  I wish I had more info to give you all about this product but I just don't.  I may just have to update this post more at a later date : )
