Covergirl Blastflipstick Review

Hi y'all!  I wanted to let you know about Covergirl Blastflipsticks.  I got to try 3 of them from Bzzagent.  They are unique lipsticks that have 2 colors in one tube.  You can use either color by itself or blend both together to get a 3rd unique  color.  For that reason alone I think they are a fabulous idea!  Some things that I also loved was the long wear, the color payoff, and the feeling of nothing on the lips.  All of these things make me love this flipsticks and I would suggest you check them out.  There are 13 flipsticks to choose from.  Let me know if you try them and what you think.

Dial Complete Foaming Hand Wash

Happy Holidays ladies and gents!  Well I'm sure we've all been really busy getting ready for the holiday season.  The holiday season is also known as the germ season and about 3 weeks ago my daughter and I were so sick.  I don't know what we had but we had it bad!  So when I got a chance to review Dial Complete Foaming Hand Wash I was estatic!!  
There are 4 cheerful designs to choose from.  I got the snowman and the candy cane bottles to try.  These bottles are filled with Dial Complete's antibacterial foaming hand wash.  This formula kills 99.9% of germs which makes me happy just thinking about!  We've been using the soap for over a week and my entire family likes it!  It has a pleasant smell that is not overwhelming.  One pump dispenses a nice amount of foam not like some of those other brands that one pump makes a mess all over the sink.  My 7 year old daughter wants to wash her hands all the time just because she likes the snowman packaging. 
I really like this product and intend on stocking up!  Let me know if you have tried Dial Complete Foaming Hand Wash and what you thought.  Let's all try to stay germ free this holiday season!

Dial provided a free sample of their Holiday Foaming Hand Soap so I could review them.  However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.

Purex plus oxi review

Today I did a load of light colored clothing with Purex Plus Oxi. I had a light pink shirt in the load that had a small spaghetti sauce stain on it from dinner the night before.  I placed a small amount of the Purex on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes.  I placed the shirt in the machine with the other clothes and added the detergent to the tub.  I loved the fresh morning burst smell.  When the load was done my clothes came out looking bright and clean. The pink shirt with the spaghetti sauce stain on it no longer had the stain which was pretty impressive!  I usually have to wash a stain like that a few times to see major results like this.  Check out Purex Plus Oxi and enter my contest on a previous post to win your own bottle! 

 disclaimer: I did receive a free bottle of the purex plus oxi in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own

Green Mountain Coffee Good Vibes


Anyone that knows me knows I am addicted to coffee.  I have to start everyday with a cup of coffee, so I was very excited to be chosen to be part of the Green Mountain Coffee BzzAgent campaign.  I got to try Green Mountain K cups as part of the campaign.  I found the coffee was flavorful and bold and I really enjoyed each cup! My favorite was Wild Mountain Blueberry...yummy!

 I was also interested in finding out some facts about Green Mountain Coffee:
  • Wide assortment of flavored coffees
  • It is the leading brand in K-Cup packs for Keurig brewers
  • It is readily available in most grocery stores, at stores like Target and Wal-Mart and online at and
  • Includes one of the largest selections of Fair Trade Certified coffees in the U.S. (if you don't know about Fair Trade Certified check out Green Mountain's Facebook page for an interesting video)
If you have tried Green Mountain Coffee leave a comment below telling me what you think.

Soft Scrub

Well as most of you know, I have recently relocated to a new home.  Well the house was new to us but not literally new.  We now had 3 bathrooms that I felt desperately needed cleaning.  This is where being a Purex Insider came in.  I was lucky enough to be chosen to try a new household cleaner from Soft Scrub.  It was a set of Total All Purpose Cleaners. I used both of these cleaners on the bathroom sinks, toliets, and tubs/showers and it worked wonderfully.  The house had been vacant for a while and their were soap scum and mold around the stoppers in the sink and tub.  I just sprayed the Soft Scrub on and wiped it off with a paper towel.  It removed all the scummy/moldy stuff quickly and easily.  I used the Soft Scrub on all the walls of the shower and they looked much brighter when I was done.  It was very helpful that their bottles work upside down to get around the toilet bowl and back of the toilet area. One thing that I really liked about the cleaner is that one of them had bleach but it didn't smell bleachy and boy did that make me feel that I was thoroughly cleaning these bathrooms.  Overall I was very pleased with both of these Soft Scrub products.  They cleaned and deodorized all 3 bathrooms to perfection and made this lady very happy.  You can check out more about Soft Scrub by going here:Soft Scrub.  
Now Soft Scrub and I would like to give a lucky reader the opportunity to try Soft Scrub Total  Cleaners for yourself.  Let's make this an easy contest.  Enter by leaving a comment below telling me where you are going to use your Soft Scrub and also leave your email adress so I can contact the winner.  I'll pick a winner on Monday October 22.  Good luck!

Unreal Candy


Hi guys!  I want to share with you my latest obsession!  As a bzzagent I get to try a lot of good/new products.  Well recently I was able to try Unreal Candy.  As the name states this stuff is unreal folks because it is unlike any other candy out there.  It has no artificial flavors, no corn syrup, and no hydrogenated oils. And if that wasn't enough folks it taste yummy too!  The biggest test of this was when my six year old daughter tried un41 chocolate candy shells (like m&m's) and she really liked them! There are 5 types of candies that rival our old time favorites.  Check them out at your local stores or on their website

If you try them please leave a comment below and tell me what you think!

New Glade Expressions products

Hi ladies and gents! This week I got quite a treat when chose me to be in their Glade Expression campaign. This campaign could not have come at a better time because we just purchased a house and it needs some tender love and care. These products help make this house feel like a home. There are 4 fragrances to choose from. I chose pineapple and mangosteen. Which smells lovely with the tropical smell of pineapple and mango. I got the must starter kit and the oil diffuser starter kit. I was very happy with products. I found the mist lasted a long time in areas that I sprayed. The oil diffuser has an awesome bamboo design and let off a pleasant amount of fragrance too and should last 30 days. If you try any of these new Glade products comment below and tell me what u think.
