Review: One-Click Photo Book

I had the opportunity to create and review at no cost (no monetary compensation was received and all thoughts & opinions are my own) 2 styles of photo books from 

What both styles have in common is clear glossy printed pages that are high quality. These are really nice books and I was glad to be able to make photo books from our vacations last year.

The first is a and 11 1/4 x 8 Hard Cover and I like this one the most because it is bigger. I can see my pictures even bigger when I have a bigger surface to work with. I also really love the hard cover, it is quite thick and sturdy. Of course with the extra surface area and the hard cover, the price tag really creeps up, but when I just went to the website when I wrote this it offered up a 60% off coupon for first time customers.

The other one is a 6 x 4 1/2 soft cover, which is their most economical book and starts at only $9.99. So, they have book choices for whatever budget level you are at.

Review: Superior Source Vitamins

It was quite a while ago that I first started taking Superior Source Vitamins. The thing that sets these vitamins apart from others is the fact that they all dissolve in your mouth, which is great when the person taking them doesn't like to swallow pills or vitamins. My son seems unable to swallow pills and vitamins, so this has been great to have to use for him because otherwise I have to find something in a liquid or chewable version.

By letting them dissolve in your mouth the potency is supposed to increase dramatically compared to when you swallow something and let your stomach acid break it down.

The Echinacea and Zinc Lozenges are something my kids actually enjoy taking when they get sick. It has a slightly minty flavor.

The Vitamin D3 and B12 are such tiny tablets that they literally dissolve in just a few second and the D3 has no flavor to it at all. I like taking the B12 in the afternoon to help me get over that afternoon slump.

Review: Picattoo Temporary Tattoos

My Thoughts:

I really liked the idea of this. My kids were super excited and helped me pick out the pictures that were going to be used on Picattoo. You can upload pictures from either Facebook or Instagram, but all 12 of your pictures have to come from the same social media platform. No biggie, but there were pictures on both I had hoped to try. Oh well. The company is in the Netherlands, so shipping takes a while. It took about 2 weeks to get mine, but the price of $14.99 already includes shipping.

Unfortunately, we tried 3 different times to get them to work and we couldn't. It took at least 2 minutes just for the paper to soak up enough water, then we kept holding it there for a minutes at a time after that and checking in between. We held it on there for 5 minutes (after the 2 minutes it took for the paper to absorb water and be soaked through). They barely stuff at all and we just had fragments on our hands that we now had to spend more time scrubbing off.

I thought maybe they would stick well because after you remove the plastic film it seemed to stick on your skin nicely and didn't slide around. The picture did show up nice and clear on the paper as they sent them to me

Review: Renuzit Pearl Scents plus GIVEAWAY

I am super excited to open my package of Renuzit Pearl Scents today. I like scents in the home and was just looking at some yesterday and thought I should just wait to get my Renuzit.

I love the look of the pearl balls in the container. It looks more attractive that a solid air freshener from all angles.

Plus it has this beautiful decorative top. I just love it. It is very pretty.

I have a pack of 3 coupons for one reader who leaves a comment below AND enters the rafflecopter form.


I put mine in the kitchen because I had a free shelf there to put it on, but I might move it to the dining room so that more of the fragrance is available when people first walk in the house.

#ad GIVEAWAY and Review: Dial Sugar Cane Hand Scrub

I had the opportunity to review Dial Sugar Cane Hand Scrub. What I love most about this hand soap is the wonderful scent. But I think I also love just as much that it is a scrub and it helps get my kids hands clean after playing in the spring mud. We are a family that believes in having fun and getting dirty because most things can be washed up just fine.

This new line of Deep Cleansing soaps come in 4 different scents including Sugar Cane Husk, Yellow Raspberry and Black Sugar, Water Blossoms and Coconut Lime Verbena. I think I would really love any of those scents.

Enter to win your own bottle of this soap, as well as coupon for 2 other kids of Dial Soap.

My Thoughts:

First of all, I am super excited that Madonna will be coming to the Twin Cities. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, so you better believe I will have an alarm set to buy tickets when they go on sale tomorrow. It's my birthday present! :)

I just love Madonna. I even "played" her in a skit for homecoming in high school. I remember how controversial it was when her "Vogue" video air on Saturday Night Videos and I set the VCR to record it so that I could see it and I wasn't allowed to stay up that late. I grew up with Madonna.

But more than that, Madonna grew up with her fans. No longer is she just the "Material Girl" Her new album "Rebel Heart" has a more sophisticated sound that her fans have evolved to and she has evolved with us and doesn't disappoint by entertaining us with a moodier and more earthly voice tones all while pushing boundaries and controversy with her lyrics.

#ad GIVEAWAY and Review: Purex Power Shot Detergent

Sorry readers for having this late giveaway for Purex PowerShot. I was on the list of bloggers to review it and it never came and never came and finally after waiting 3 weeks they re-sent me the package and I got it with 1 day to spare to report my review back. Talk about cutting it close.

I have only had the chance to review it with one load, but I can tell you my impression from that one load experience.

The who design of the bottle of Purex Power Shot is to give you a perfect dose of laundry detergent so that you do not pour in too much, I have to tell you I LOVE THIS IDEA! The cap is a flip cap, so now no cap will go missing and you have the perfect dose of detergent so that you are not using too much, which is just throwing away money if you continually use too much.

This picture above shows what it looks like after I have turned it over  (and back again) and it filled to the perfect "SHOT".

This is a picture after I have already poured in the detergent. You can see the cap is open and there is no more detergent coming out. Only the pre-measured SHOT of Purex Power Shot goes in to the wash. This is such a genius idea!
