Happy Wax

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

Happy Wax

  Happy Wax wax melts are a soy based alternative to the traditional mainstream paraffin products that have overtaken the market in the past few years.  

  Not only are they safer by being melts instead of open flame candles but they are also made out of 100% soy and all-natural essential oils.  They also non-toxic and saline free.  And due to the use of soy they last longer and smell stronger than the traditional paraffin ones.  And they are all hand-made in North Carolina.

  These also don't require you to break apart the blocks, these come in a variety of shapes that you just grab out of a tin storage container and place in your melter.  You can also purchase your melts but the half pound bag.

  Happy Wax wax melts come in a variety of scents:
Lemon Verbena
Cinnamon Chai
Cucumber Melon
Eucalyptus Spearmint
Fresh Bamboo
Lavender Chamomile
etc.  (There are just too many scents to list here)

  And also a variety of shapes:
Gummy Bears
Festive Trees

  Oh and they offer free shipping over $20.

Mommy in PA:  I received the classic wax warmer and a tin of the Lilac scented Heart wax melts.  First off I want to say that the warmer is excellent.  Much better quality than the one I had purchased for myself at a well-known retailer.  The top part doesn't get as hot as my other one so it is much easier to empty.  

  Now onto the wax melts.  These are AMAZING!!!  I could smell them in the next room just from opening the tin.  The tins are super cute and a great way to store your melts right next to your warmer, no more stashing them in a drawer lol :)  I also love that when they are melting they actually scented up a good 75% percent of my house (well upstairs and downstairs, didn't smell them in the basement or attic).  The scent was very pure smelling, not all that fakeness we are all used to these days.  

  I also loved the fact that I just reach in and grab one from the tin instead of having to break them apart like the other brands.  

  Oh and their prices are very reasonable.  Especially if you buy the half pound bags.  They are under $20 bucks and look like they would last for quite awhile.  If you are using a wall mount unit they recommend using one wax melt at a time, if you are using a larger unit like the one above, they recommend using two to three and encourage mixing scents 
: )

  I am very happy with my warmer and melts and can't wait to order some more scents to try out.  The selection is amazing!!!!  They have a ton of scents so be sure to head over and check them out.  They have something for everybody : )  And be sure to sign up for their email list so that you can find out when the deals are.

Currently they have an offer where if you use code IHEARTWAX you get 10% off your order!!!

"On Edge: A Journey Through Anxiety"

Disclaimer:  I received the following from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

"On Edge:  A Journey Through Anxiety"

  By Andrea Petersen

  "On Edge:  A Journey Through Anxiety" is Andrea Petersen's first hand experiences with panic attacks and anxiety disorder.  From her first panic attack in college until the current day follow Andrea's path through the terrible symptoms she experiences and her learning about what possibly makes her that way.  

  Can you imagine what it would be like to be terrified of using a brand new tube of toothpaste?  Well Andrea does, along with a lot of other things that to us would seem normal.  Find out what types of therapies and medications she has tried along the way and how they affected her.  Also find out what family history can effect.

  Will she ever have a happy relationship?  Will she ever be able to have a child?  Andrea will answer all of these questions in the book.

  Mommy in PA:  Ok, so most of us have experienced a bit of anxiety, depression, paranoia, etc. you get the picture.  And I've also heard that a little bit of anxiety is good for you.  Well sometimes I feel like I have a little too much, my husband has been known to say "You worry too much" quite frequently lol : )  So needless to say I picked this book due to being a bit curious.  

  Wow!  She packs a lot of info in here...a lot more than I really needed but would be helpful for others I am sure.  I about put the book down around the middle because there was just so much about the clinical tests and all the results and her meeting with all of these professionals and learning about the advances in testing and treating.  But needless to say I was happy once she got back to talking about her own experiences again.

  I found her story very sad at times, but also very hopeful and happy at others.  She proves that you can have anxiety and still have good times in your life : )  This was an excellent read for folks who want to familiarize themselves with how the brain reacts during a panic attack or just general anxiety, she goes over a lot of the research.

Bioken Enfanti M72 Ceramide Hair Products + Giveaways!!!

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

Bioken Enfanti M72 Hair Products + Giveaways!!!
  M72 Ceramide Mask is a product created using 72 trace minerals and ceramides to strengthen and restore elasticity to your hair.  So you may be wondering what ceramides are, well they are one of three types of lipids found in the hair cuticle which helps anchor the hair in place. 

  The product was created to repair damage to hair, restore balance, and provide a protective barrier.

  Mommy in PA:  I love, love, love the smell of this product.  And how it feels when applying really makes it feel like a luxury product.  Very thick, stays on well, and again the smell is just wonderful.  

  I tried the product with and without using my regular conditioner first.  With both scenarios the product left my hair feeling very soft and silky when it was still damp.  But after I noticed quite a difference.  When using without my regular conditioner I noticed that my hair was left feeling pretty dry and frizzish.  When using with my regular conditioner it left my hair feeling silky, soft, and smooth.  I did notice that it didn't weigh my hair down whichever way I used it and I also noticed another nice benefit, not having to wash my hair as often.  I typically only wash my hair every other day so as not to dry it out but with the featured product I could easily go another whole day without washing if I wanted to.

Oh and if you are worried about the price, don't be, this product should easily last you a few months as you don't need a lot per application and they give you a nice size container : )
  All in all I really enjoyed the product especially in combination with my regular conditioner.   

Enter below for your chance to win your very own Mask.

M72 Keratin Shampoo
