Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends

Hey guys!   Its been a long winter here and I am ready for the warmer weather.  Since it looks like we have a few more weeks of cold yucky weather I was so excited to try Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends!  I can pretend I'm in a tropical place right?! The new Honey Bunches of Oats has crisy mango and crunch coconut bits in each bite.  I ate a bowl this morning and it was really yummy and flavorful.  The tropical goodness took me to a happier warmer place :)  If you like Honey Bunches of Oats give the new Tropical Blends a try!
Honey Bunches of Oats and the folks at Purex Insiders want you to have your own box to try for yourself so I'm having a giveaway using rafflecopter.  Winners will be notified by email by 3/2/13.

Dry Idea Advanced Dry

As promised I have some new products to tell you about.  First up is Dry Idea Advanced Dry antiperspirant and deodorant.  I have been using it for over a week now and I love it.  I roll the antiperspirant on in the morning and that's it!  I've cooked, cleaned, walked the dog, and ran errands and still I felt fresh and clean all day long.  Now this new product is odor protection for up to 72 hours.  I didn't try it out for that long but it does last all day.  It is also pulse activated wetness protection to keep you dry.  Even after walking the dog or using the treadmill I did not have a problem with any wetness in the armpit area of my shirts.  It has Vitamin E for a silky smooth application.  The only issue I have had is when wearing a dark shirt it can leave a white mark on it even though it is a clear roll on.  Dry Idea really puts out a great product!
For more information check them out at : or

Now for the fun part for you.....The kind people at Dry Idea and Purex Insiders want you to try out a bottle so I am going to hold a contest via rafflecopter.  The contest will end 2/28/13 and the winner will be contacted via email!

20 Mule Team Borax Review

Hi lovelies!  I am back again with a review about 20 Mule Team Borax!  Now Borax is not a product that you always hear lots about but it is a product that my family has be using for years!  If you don't know about Borax let me fill you in:
  • Borax is 100% natural mineral from the Earth.Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate-a naturally occurring substance produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes. Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried, and boxed for consumers. There is nothing added to it!
  • Borax naturally softens hard water. Hard water affects the cleaning of your clothes!
  • Borax also boosts your detergent.  All you have to do is add 1/2 cup of Borax to every load.  It will help keep stains from being re-deposited back onto clothes (yucky)! 

Now along with it's great laundry boosting properties there is something else I use Borax for and that's fleas!  I know, sounds crazy right?! but whenever we have had a flea problem in our carpet, couches, rugs, etc we put down the Borax and leave it for a few days and then vacuum it up.  It has always helped us get rid of any infestations we may have had.  I hope that tip helps someone.

Check out Borax's page here:

Borax and Purex Insiders have been kind enough to provide me with coupons for a free product so I am going to hold a giveaway.  I'm trying to make my giveaways easy for even the most computer challenged readers out there (you know who you are) so here's the deal.  Enter on the
