OrganicaPure Review


Between myself and my teenage daughter, we have a LOT of lotions around the house.  There isn’t much difference that we can tell, aside from scent mainly.  Of course, there are a few exceptions, but not many.

Organica Pure seems to be one of those few and far between lotions.  Instantly after rubbing it into your skin you feel a softness that has no match.  It’s the closest I’ve ever felt my skin be to the softness of a baby’s skin.  That is an amazing result if you ask me!  Who doesn’t love the feel of a Little One’s cheek???

I tried two different lotions: Cocoa & Honey and Aloe Vera & Honey.  While they both yield similar results, the Cocoa & Honey is my favorite.  It could be a psychological chocolate thing.  LOL.  The Coacoa & Honey leaves your skin amazingly smooth with a subtle scent that doesn’t overpower perfume or other natural smells.

The Aloe Vera & Honey lotion also did an amazing job of softening my skin.  It has been said that aloe vera helps with aging skin and the company points that out in the description. If you love the smell of aloe vera, you’ll love this one.  The scent is a little stronger than the other but it’s still a great lotion.  I’m just not a lover of strong scents.

One thing I love about their product, that really adds an additional perk, is that the bottles have a lid that you can turn sideways to close so that you don’t have to worry about accidental discharge.  Extremely important in a house that frequently has curious little hands investigating things!

At $15 a bottle, Organica Pure does an amazing job of creating organic lotion that truly makes a difference in your skin from the moment it is rubbed in and beyond.  Organica Pure also offers FREE SHIPPING on all orders!  That’s always a win!  They have many other products to help your skin, my favorite (with all this pasty skin) would be the sunburn treatments but they also have bath salts, wash gels, stretch mark creams and many others.

Judging by the amazing results I got from the lotions, I’m pretty certain that the others work equally well, if not better!  You’ll want to check them out, I promise!  Getting that spa treatment feel without that spa treatment price is an added bonus!

@Woolzies Dryer Balls Review

woolziesFrom the Company

Woolzies are 100% pure new zealand wool dryer balls that do everything that conventional fabric softeners do plus they reduce drying time by 25%. They are money back guaranteed to last for at least 1,000 loads!
Woolzies have no chemicals at all and are also hypoallergenic so are safe even for people with wool sensitivities.

My Thoughts

I’ve really enjoyed using Woolzies.  They have been a great addition.  I make my own laundry soap (or use a Robby Ball) and don’t like to spend the extra money on fabric softeners so these have really helped with the static in my dryer.  In addition, I have noticed the dryer time has been cut down, which is nice on the electric bill!!!  The only down side is that there is no scent, but then that’s probably not bad for everyone!  😀  We were already adding crystals to our wash, so it’s not a deal breaker for us.

I do probably 2-3 loads of laundry per day, so if I were using traditional dryer sheets that would be about 30 cents per day.  The basic package of Woolzies is $34.95 which means I would need to use it for 350 loads in order to break even.  This would take approximately 116 days.  Therefore, I would recoup my money in that amount and the dryer balls are said to last up to 1000 loads.  A deal that works for me!  😀

Big Brother/Big Sister Kits

Big Brother/Sister Kit
New babies are an amazing blessing!  Everyone oohing and aahing over the beautiful new baby!  Sometimes though, big brother or big sister can feel a little left out.  New babies come with all kinds of new presents, big brother or sister need something new too!
This is perfect to help a new big brother or sister feel special.  Everyone wants to see the new baby, but this will get the big sibling some extra special feelings!
The kit is an inexpensive and highly personalized way to do just that!

Kit Contents:

A Custom Tee & Bag
Big Sibling Certificate
Coloring Book
Printables (pictured and/or linked below)
Spill Proof Bubbles
Juice & Healthy Snacks
Light up bouncy ball
The tee is just a plain white tee shirt with an iron on that says ‘Big Brother’ from Hobby Lobby.  The bag (also from Hobby Lobby) just has Big Brother written with fabric paint.  You could do something different, maybe put their name on it.  Don’t worry if you aren’t very good at it, the reason there are dots on mine is because I messed up with the paint, but  no one knows that but you.  😉
I got this ribbon image from the Homeade Gift Guru
The traceable one can be found at Twisty Noodle, they also have one without the words.
Of course, if you’d like there are also big sister printables equivalent to these on each of the sites.
Altogether, the kit cost less than $20 and was totally worth it!  It was loved by the big brother and greatly appreciated by the parents too!  It was nice hearing about how one particular Big Brother put his shirt on then went to show it off to the nurses!  😀

Diva Dog: I Love Lucy!


It’s an ‘I love Lucy’ kind of day…

Well, our Lucy anyway.  Diva very rarely poses so I thought I’d share these with ya.  99% of the time she looks like we are about to beat her in pictures.  Don’t buy it, she does that on purpose!  LOL.

Not sure why I added the rocks, I just thought they were pretty.

Trust: A Venting Session

I have no idea why we, as human beings, ever go against our natural instincts.  Animals don’t.  Ever.  That’s why they say animals can sense evil.  It’s not that they sense evil, they just trust their own instincts.  They don’t fill their heads with worry and concern over whether or not it’s the right decision, they just listen to what God tells them through their instincts.

I made the mistake of going against my natural instinct because my heart was screaming to do so.  I knew better, I have since done better.  Last night my instincts were confirmed for an event that took place a while back.  The wound of betrayed trust hurts even now.  I’m hurt and angry, and somehow not quite as surprised.  I wish I could say otherwise.

The kids like to say ‘epic fail’.  I hear it all the time out of their little heads.  So, in the interest of irony, my heart’s judgement was an epic fail.

Yesterday I didn’t post, I don’t have much of an excuse.  I just didn’t do it.  Today I’m venting.  Perhaps tomorrow will be normal again.
