Make Your Dishes Sparkle Cascade Platinum Giveaway #DDDivas #CascadeShiningReviews #sponsored

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.
 Recently I was asked to host a get together with friends and family to test and show off the effectiveness of Cascade Platinum. There is no better excuse to have friends and family over other than to dirty some dishes with good food.

I have always believed if the dishes fit in the dishwasher, they will get clean. Unfortunately, experience has taught me different. I just need to know not to block the water jets with big bowls or cups and everything seems to come out okay. 

As my friends arrived, I managed to keep all of my dirty little secrets and dishes, to myself. While everyone was enjoying their brownies, I tossed the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and washed the dishes. I removed all large pieces of food, but did not pre-rinse.

Spaghetti and brownies be gone! Can you see me waving my magic wand? 

 Yes, that is the same pan! Look how clean it came. Not even a hint of a brown crumb! My guests were all amazed that it could look so clean with scrubbing it first. That is more than an "okay clean." My dish sparkles!

Instant Face Lift with Mistiq Rapid Lifting & Tightening Spritz #protegemistiq

I am not one to go searching for the perfect cure for aging, but i swear I just found a quick fix to my fine lines. No, it is not plastic surgery. It is called Mistiq.
What is Mistiq? It is a spritz that you can easily carry in your purse to spritz on your face when ever you need an additional lift.

I started by using Mistiq first thing in the morning. I would apply it on a clean dry face, wait a few seconds for it to completely dry, then apply my usual make-up. It is super easy to apply. You do need to make sure you avoid your eyes and mouth. If you close your eyes and mouth when spraying, your should have no issues. Spray once, and you are done! Really? That is all there is to it? Yippee!

The results are not the same as true plastic surgery, but I promise people around you will ask what you are doing? The fine lines diminish and red spots fade. Your skin become more even and your pores will appear smaller. 

So the one downside, it that the effects are only listed to last 4 hours. I found that I did not feel like I needed to use it every four hours. There were a few occasions that I added a quick spritz over my make-up in the late afternoon before a meeting at my kids school or a late lunch with a friend. I thought that a little touch up would help make me feel refreshed and more put together in the late afternoon and I was right. Not only did I get compliments, but the cool mist felt great on a hot summer day.

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.

Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream Review #BodyMerry

You may not know it now, but there will be a point when you realize that you should be taking much better care of your skin. It starts with a little dry skin here and there, soon the subtle lines start, then next thing you know you have crows feet that resemble your mother.

I know that I started with a little dry flaky skin in my T-zone. Before I knew it, I had fine lines near my eyes and around my mouth. Adding a little extra moisture and a touch of science, has proven to help reduce the look of my true age.

I recently tried Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream. It is designed for all types of skin and managed to feel light and gentle on my skin. After a few weeks of use, I found that my crows feet were less prominent and my flaky skin in between my eye brows was gone.  The part I liked the best? The subtle glow that my skin had when I used the Body Merry. Trust me, dull lifeless skin is on its way if you don't have it yet.

Here is a bit of information from Body Merry regarding the ingredients:

"Packed with cutting edge peptides like Matrixyl-3000 and Tripeptide-5 with an ocean based Retinol and botanical Hyaluronic Acid. We know that's not enough – so we've added lots of antioxidants, organic vitamins and minerals, pure plant oils and botanical actives – Aloe, Witch Hazel, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin C, Cucumber, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Tamanu Oil, Green Tea, Licorice, Eyebright, Avocado Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Lemon, Lemongrass, Vitamin B5, Lavender and Chamomile (to name just a few!)."

With what appears to be a blend of science and nature,  Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream is available now for under $20. You can not beat the price or the quality.

 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.

Ingenuity Washable Playard with Dream Centre Review

Disclaimer: I received the product described at no cost in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way. 

As a mom, I am always looking for ways to simplify my life. I live in a small home with very limited storage and two small children. The new Ingenuity Washable Playard with Dream Centre has been a dream come true.

From: Ingenuity.com
As you can see from the photo above, it is pretty darn cute. It appears to have everything a mom or baby could need from a playard. Believe me, it does, and a little more too.

 It was quick and easy to set up. I thought I would get a little frustrated with some of the accessories, but in just a few minutes time, I had the entire Ingenuity Washable Playard with Dream Centre set up. Even with the kids around. I am sure I would have remembered to add the bar with the animals for the photo above if I was not chasing or comforting someone in the middle of the set up.

The Ingenuity Washable Playard with Dream Centre has a snap on diaper changing station that is ideal for a small infant. Along with the diaper changing station for your infant, there is a raised bottom function to allow for less bending with a small infant. Dreamy for us older moms!! Don't worry though, the next time you blink and your child doubles in size, the playard quickly adapts to your needs.

The best part, the entire cover unzips for washing. No more worrying about the little messes that end up on the fabric. Just unzip, wash, and recover.  It is very clear that the Ingenuity Washable Playard with Dream Centre was designed with moms in mind.

Febreze #Noseblind Review and Giveaway

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

There is nothing more uncomfortable than having someone drop by at the last moment and having a dirty home. Well, maybe knowing the guests were coming over and having a smelly home.

I recently invited two friends over for a Febreze Noseblind movie night.. With the help of some buttery popcorn we set off to take the challenge.

First off, you cannot mistake the smell of microwave popcorn. It is so overwhelming, that it almost makes your nose burn. After watching a great movie with even greater friends, we set off on the next step.

What do we smell now? Well considering there was a popcorn bowl in front of one of us, we all smelled different things. I smelled my old stinky dog in my lap, one of my friends smelled the old popcorn sitting next to her, the best answer of all, "I smell sweaty bodies." That is what you call a "good friend."

When we were all done with discussing our olfactory system, (that is just a fancy way to say our sense of smell) we  tested out the Febreze Air Effects Meadow and Rain.

Now first off, you should know that I am a little bit of a scent-aholic. I love the smell of freshly washed clothes and a clean house. I don't want to smell cleaners, I want things to smell fresh. Febreze managed to not only hide the scent of stale buttered popcorn, it was gone. Even with the bowl still in front of us. Now don't get me wrong, if I put the bowl under my nose and sniffed, I could smell the popcorn, but the room no longer smelled like a recently abandoned movie theater.

 You can go to the Febreze Noseblind site to get more information and the science behind noseblindness.
