 ELECTRO GLAM MASCARA

Give your look a jolt of electric colour, with this limited-edition trio of ultra-bold coloured mascaras for hair and lashes, in three heavily pigmented, buildable colours. 
FOR LASHES- Make a subtle statement by adding a pop of colour to the tips of your lashes, or add coats to your entire lashes for a shockingly chic look. The more the better!
AS A HAIR MASCARA- Apply to small sections of hair and swipe through for instant ELECTRIC highlights.

Why don’t we go there- Shock of blue
Does he know?- Pinkest hot pink 
Story of my life- Amped canary yellow


Miss M's Opinion: This isn't your average mascara. I have many colors of mascara but this is the first that I can use on both my hair and lashes. As using it for mascara I found it easy to apply and gave a fascinating look. It didn't seem to last long so in a period of 4 hours I had to reapply twice. I was able to streak my hair with all three colors for school and it lasted all day. It is both fun and stylish. 
 LIQUILIGHTS GLOW GLOSS

Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark. Enriched with natural oils and vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night. 
Gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle and color, or paired with One Direction crème lipstick for a bolder look. 

Through the Dark- Electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light 
Kiss You- Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light 
Taken - Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light

Miss M's Opinion: The Through the Dark is my favorite and the one that I choose to wear everyday. I like that it doesn't dry my lips out and leaves them feeling soft and looking shiny. 
ROCK ME NAIL KIT

ROCK ME NAIL KIT, featuring NEON UV-REACTIVE Nail Varnish and UV-REACTIVE GLITTER nail toppings that add even more sizzle to your mani, for nails that light up day and night. 
Sprinkle the glitter over wet polish for a subtle accent, or go for the glitz and dip your entire wet mani in mega-watt sparkle! 

Nail Varnish:
Happily– UV iced blue glitter 
Moments- UV neon pink 
Diana- UV 3D holographic 

Glitter Toppings: 
Kicks- UV snow cone blue
Not afraid- UV electrified pink glitter 
Star-- UV holo glitter 


Miss M's Opinion: This is my favorite nail kit. I love to do my nails and this is perfect for giving me a great look that no one else has. Instead of just trying on color though I done one for each fingernail and toenail and repeated. It is awesome! Can't wait to see what other One Direction Makeup Kits are available!

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Nanoblock (R&G)

"Ohio Art provided product for this review. My review is an honest opinion based on my own experience and has not been reviewed or edited by Ohio Art."

  My entire family has a love for building blocs. We have enjoyed sets and creating our own creations for many years now. One of the brands that I have found that have peaked my 10 year old's interests is Nanoblock from the Ohio Art Company. Nanoblock is a micro-sized building block system with its smallest piece being a mere 4mmX4mmX5mm. They allow you to create 3D works of art. 


  • Part of the Insect Series
  • 120+ assorted pieces
  • Instruction book included
  • Ages 8+
  • MSRP: $13.49


  • 350+ Assorted pieces
  • Difficulty level 3 of 5
  • Ages 8+
  • MSRP: $26.99

My boys have really been enjoying the Nanoblock sets. K really enjoys them more than any other building blocks. He likes to be able to display them once finished. He was a master at putting the firetruck together, he never once asked for help. Little T. wanted to help put the Praying Mantis together which he isn't quite as patient and it wasn't as simple for him to put the small pieces together. Once together though he thought it was the coolest thing ever. They are both already asking when we can add new sets. The bigger sets are the perfect Christmas gift and the smaller sets are a great stocking stuffer. 


A  huge Thanks to Ohio Art Company who has offered (1) of my lucky readers their very own Praying Mantis and Pickup Truck.

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Green Toys Helicopter (R&G)

"Green Toys provided product for this review. My review is an honest opinion based on my own experience and has not been reviewed or edited by Green Toys."

Green Toys is an amazing company that makes children's toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials. A few great Facts about Green Toys. Every pound of recycled milk jugs used in the making of Green Toys saves energy equal to 3,000 AAA batteries. Saves enough electricity to power a t.v. set for 3 entire weeks, and saves enough electricity to keep a laptop computer going for three months. I was just astonished at those factors. Green Toys provides the perfect toys for your little ones this Holiday Season. 

Our Opinion: We had the opportunity to review the Green Toys Helicopter. This helicopter is perfect for little ones who love action toys but still haven't mastered little toys. Miss Sofie isn't to much on little girl toys but you hand her a vehicle or ball and she is all in. She has really been enjoying this helicopter and it is durable enough to take all of her roughness. The little Pilot that is included is adorable and has yet to get to actually fly his own heli, as he is always hanging out in her hand. The Green Toys Helicopter is available in blue and green. The MSRP is $16.99.
A  huge Thanks to Green Toys who has offered (1) of my lucky readers their very own Green Toys Helicopter.

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Nano Falcon (R&G)

"Silverlit provided product for this review. My review is an honest opinion based on my own experience and has not been reviewed or edited by Silverlit."

Looking for that perfect gift this Holiday Season? Look no further! The Silverlit Nano Falcon is perfect for all ages! 

The great features of the Silverlit Nano Falcon include:
  • Smallest RC model helicopter as certified by Guinness World Records Limited.
  • Has Gyro Stabilizer that makes flying easier.
  • Charges on Docking Station.
  • Weighs only 11 grams
  • Flies up, down, forward and backward.
  • Pre-selected tri band system
  • Slim design for transmitter. 



Our Opinion: Little T has been wanting a new helicopter for some time now but the ones that he has had in previous years have been very difficult for him to navigate. The Nano Falcon he figured it out in about 2 uses and never wants to put it down. I like that even when he does crash into things, it is so small it does not damage anything. Mr. K has also been enjoying it and at times we have had a little difficulty getting him to share as he wants to show the boys all of the new "tricks" he has learned to do with it. The Nano Falcon come in three colors and the MSRP is $49.99.

A huge thank you to Silverlit who has offered (1) of my lucky readers their very own Nano Falcon. Open to US residents only.

Mrs. Cavanaugh's Chocolates Buy One Get One Code

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by All Things Christmas and More, all opinions expressed in post are 100% mine.*
Time was when Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.

"It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe," Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. "I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'"

Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.

...In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch. 

"It was a difficult decision, especially for George," Mrs. Cavanaugh said. "He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy - and could compete with - those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates."

Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh's candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence....
