Skin care is super important for everyone, but especially for women in my opinion. I’m about to turn 30 (gulp) this month so I really need to pay close attention to my skin. I’m super excited to be a part of the Olay Regenerist Luminous Program sponsored by @Shespeaksup, @OlayUS and Walmart.

Let me start off with my absolute favorite item I received. The peanut brittle. I have always been a fan of peanut brittle but after receiving my box from See's Candy, I now realize that I have missed out in life. I have NEVER eaten a piece of peanut brittle that even compares to this. It is just a crunchy piece of buttery deliciousness!!
Truffles have been a long time favorite of mine, and See's is not an exception. The 1 lb variety pack is very yummy! The centers are more of a nougat, and less creamy but I am a fan. My favorite is the raspberry truffle!! Just absolute yumminess. My husband said the only thing that would make these better is to have a map letting you know exactly what you were biting into!
I am not lucky enough to have a See's Candy near me, but maybe you are! Either way, I am offering one lucky winner a $25 gift certificate to See's Candy, provided by them! This can be used to purchase anything in store or online from them.

When I read a book, I like to get into the story and not think about anything else. I like to have my imagination take over, sort of like watching a movie. I had the opportunity to read the book Too Much Information by David Haskell. I’m so glad I did, as I do like suspense and thrillers.

Welcome to the Zim's SkinCare Giveaway!
Hosted by: Mommy Lesson Plans
Sponsored by: Zim's Naturally Based ProductsThe folks over at Perfecta Products sent me a line of Zim's® Naturally Based Products to try out and to share with one of my readers! My favorite product was the Crack Creme® with Hydrocortisone. For years now I have had a rough, bumpy patch of skin on my left elbow, gross huh? Anyway, I have tried loads of different products to help get rid of it, like lotions and cremes. Nothing working, and most of them actually made it a little worse. I tried the Crack Creme and for the first time in ages the little bumpy patch is finally calm, not itchy or rough anymore! I would highly recommend this product to ANYONE who is suffering from skin irritations because it helped me. I was very impressed with the entire line of Zim's products and their efforts to create products that are formulated using organic and naturally-based ingredients, instead of using harsh chemicals.

My youngest is now 19 months and just the other day got her 5th tooth. You read that right, only her 5th one. She didn’t have any teeth until 15 months. Even though she didn’t have any pop through she still had all the signs of teething from around 6 months. I have heard so many moms talk about teething bling that I had to give it a try. I contacted Smart Mom Jewelry, and I’m so glad they said yes.
I know Fallon is a little older than most for teething but none the less I figured it would help since she is always trying to chew everything. Fallon noticed right away that I had something new on. She was a little leery of taking it since every other time I take things away from her. Of course this time I didn’t. I told her she could bit it and showed her it was for her. From then on she knew and wanted to play with it.
Cutting out red dye is actually a huge deal and a big endeavor. If you haven't already, just step in your pantry and look at your kids snacks. I'm willing to be over 50% are filled with red dye. It is really sad that in America, it is OKAY to load our kids up with these chemical laden foods, and we do it without realizing the ramifications of it!
