Perfectly Posh Review & Giveaway!

Hey there my amazing readers! 
I'm pretty excited to share this amazing review and giveaway with you all.

Blabs from a SAHM and TW recently had the chance to try some products from a new company called Perfectly Posh.  She had no idea what to expect but her pal Ashley ensured me that she would love everything.  She only had to browse her website for a minute before she knew Ashley was right!

About Perfectly Posh, from Ashley herself:
"Perfectly Posh is a pampering products company that brings you spa quality lotions, face masks, scrubs, natural beauty products, and more! All free of SLS (sulfate), paraben, and paraffin. It’s a fairly young company that was founded October 1st 2011 and has been personally one of the best experiences I’ve ever encountered with a direct sales company. The products I’ve used so far have cleared up my face of blemishes and blotches that I’ve previously fought with for years and can finally throw away medications I had previously used! My husband’s nasty toes are now actually soft again…well we need to consider they haven’t been soft since he was a little kid. "

Blabs from a SAHM and TW was able to try a bunch of Perfectly Posh products and really liked them all!  She loved that all of their products are free of sulfates, paraben and paraffins.  Also, they don't test on animals! She is a huge animal lover (So am I!) and you would be surprised to know all of the companies that do test their products on our poor animal friends.  

All of the products that she tried were very gentle to the skin.  She also really like that on the website you can read all of the ingredients in every product. Ashley asked her a few questions to help her choose which products would work best for her.  Everything Ashley told her she would like, she loved! 

 The first thing that  Blabs from a SAHM and TW tried was the Easy Essentials {portabalm} in Perk!  This is an natural peppermint essential oil balm designed to go where you go.  She had been very stressed lately (her car was stolen).  She had been rubbing some on her temples when she felt a headache coming on.  It has an uplifting peppermint scent that really helps you well..perk up!  It can also be rubbed into muscles to relieve stress.  This was one of her favorites!

She next tried the Moisture Shot Lip Glass in Ohh La...Kahula.  First off, this is only $4 and it really is worth it!  She has been using it all week and she says that her lips feel fantastic!  It is packed with shea butter and almond oil so it really does pack a moisturizing punch.  Her only problem was that it smells so good that she is constantly craving white russians!

 Next on the list to try was the Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme in Lei Away.  She would normally think that most hand creams are the same.  They are too greasy, don't moisturize enough or aren't long lasting.  BFY Hand Creme is not like the rest!   It left  Blabs from a SAHM and TW's hands really soft and lasted for hours.  She always gets really dry skin in the Winter and this year she knows that she will be using this hand creme.  

*As a side note, the bottle is TSA friendly.  She had just gone to Las Vegas for her brother's wedding and didn't have a single bottle that she could bring on the plane with her.

She knew that she really wanted to try one of Perfectly Posh's Bombinators.  She chose the Ball 'O Butter mostly because she was curious about the way it would leave her skin.  The only "me time" that she gets is her nightly bath.  She actually broke the Bombinator into pieces so she could enjoy it multiple times.  As odd as it sounds, it left her skin feeling like she took a bath with butter minus the greasiness.  Her skin was super soft and really moisturized.  She highly recommends it!

A few times a week, she and her husband stay up after our daughter goes to sleep to spend some time together.  This usually includes her asking (begging) for a back rub.  After using lotion for a long time she finally bought some massage oil.  It was such a disappointment that she threw the bottle away after one time.  Then she was able to try Perfectly Posh's Funky Fingers Massage Balm in Lively Lemongrass.  Holy cow, it's perfection.  It somehow manages to be long lasting but not at all greasy.  The container is $16 and it will last a long time!  She is  absolutely reordering this products when she finishes the one she has now!  

 The final product that Blabs from a SAHM and TW had the privilege of trying was The Stripper Detox Body Mud.  She was really looking forward to trying this one because she has been searching for a mud mask forever.  All you have to do it put it on and wait for it to dry.  You can use it all over your body or just your face.  She used it on the face the first time and was really pleased.  Her face felt completely bare.  It was great!  She really recommends this to anyone who lives where there is a lot of pollution!

Headline Shirts is your source for incredibly comfy and intelligently funny t-shirts and apparel for adults and kids. Their Vintageblend™ tees are handsewn in the U.S.A. using a super soft cotton/poly blend. I love that they use eco-friendly inks and materials right down to the bag they send it in. Yes friends, my obsession of cats even leads into other areas of my life such as my choice of attire. I couldn't resist this creative tee with the kitty cop asking, "Who's Laughing Meow?" To be honest, I expected this average cotton T-Shirt to arrive that has been screen printed and would look like any other t-shirt in my closet. I was quite wrong, it's this gorgeous vintage blend which gives it a nice grain of colors and is one of the softest t-shirts I've ever owned. Although I love wearing it during the day, I also enjoy sleeping in it because it is so cozy and comfy! 

One Lucky Winner will receive a Headline T-Shirt of their choice!

My overall impression of Zipz Shoes has been nothing short of love. I have owned many pairs of shoes that look similar to Zipz, but do not offer the premium quality and superior comfort. I've never owned something so fun either. Just think of all the possibilities and advantages! You can pack lighter by simply packing a few covers instead of changes of shoes. It will feel like you have a brand new pair of shoes every time you change out the covers. You will have one pair to wear as the other cover washes. These truly are the ultimate pair of shoes.

Real Kids Shades Reviews & Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I have another great post for you all today.


 The Sublime Media Connection has been busy reviewing Real Kids ShadesIn this post we will share the members great reviews and a fabulous giveaway. One very lucky reader is going to win a $50 Gift Card for Real Kids Shades.    

Real Kids Shades are different from the standard sunglasses intended for children. They  offer 100% UV protection (both UVA & UVB,) are shatter proof, and offer a great wrap around design for total eye protection. Most sunglasses for children are deceptive; while the lenses are dark, they really do not protect the eyes from sun exposure which can lead to eye damage. Most kid's sunglasses are actually marketed as toys. 


 Brittany of SAHM and TW worries about her daughters eyes. Find out what she thinks of Real Kids Shades by reading her review here.   

 April of Saving For My Family gave her review pair to her son. You can see what he thinks of his new shades by clicking here to read her review.

 Sunglasses are important gear for your child during back to school time and throughout the year! Your child’s backpack should always have a pair of sunglasses handy so they can put them on when they’re outside at recess or walking home from the bus stop.   

 Real Kids Shades understands that back to school time can be stressful for families. The calendar fills up and so does the “to do” list. We also understand that the endless amount of school supplies, clothing, and gear that need to be purchased can put a real financial strain on parents.

Mail Call 9/18

Skoy Cloth Review

When I found out I was going to review Skoy cloths, I couldn't wait to get them in the mail! 

A little bit about Skoy:

Michelle & Karen, two awesome moms from California, are the people behind the genius product that is the Skoy cloth.
‘The idea originated when Michelle was living in Europe in the late 90’s.  She discovered a product that was similar to the SKOY cloth and it was just amazing.  Over time she found the cloth to be indispensable.  When she moved back to the US, she realized that the use of a sponge was inadequate and the excessive use of paper towels, wasteful. Michelle searched and searched for a similar cloth and nothing even compared; nothing was of the same caliber. This is when Michelle introduced the cloth to Karen. She immediately fell in love with it and could not imagine cleaning with anything else.’ 
This is the back of the pack I received.
There's a great info card included with the Skoy Cloths.
I have been trying to be more eco-friendly in my home and my life in general. I want to do what I can to save what we have left of this planet. The fact that there are so many people who share that mindset today is really great. I love that Michelle and Karen not only wanted to find something that was a better alternative to what they were using in their homes, but they actually researched and developed an amazing product! 

1 of these Skoy cloths is equal to about 15 rolls of paper towel, amazing! The cloth dries quickly unlike a sponge. Also, they are dishwasher and washer/dryer safe. Just throw it in the wash and it's good as new. To sterilize the cloth between uses, wet it and stick it in the microwave for 2 minutes! So easy.

I love the colors that came in the pack! 
I tried using one of the cloths to clean my kitchen counter today. I was very impressed! I'm not going to lie, I was skeptical when I felt the texture of the cloths when they were dry. They felt so stiff and non-porous, like cardboard almost. Well, when I wet them they reminded me of a chamois for your car. So soft and spongy!

As I said before, when you wet the cloth (you should do this before using it) it turns into a really soft but strong product. It cleaned my counter very well without a lot of effort. I got some coffee drips from my boyfriends early morning coffee 8 hours earlier, as well as what looked like sauce and oil splatter near the stove. Then I rinsed it clean and left it to dry until next time.

Dali Decals Review & Giveaway!

Today I have a great Dali Decals review and giveaway for you! 


 You know when you move into a new house and realize that you now need to decorate all the bare walls? That's what happened to Brittany of the SAH&TW blog at the beginning of this year. After she hung all of her pictures and other stuff, she still had a few huge blank spots on the walls. She rents her house so she didn't want to go through the hassle of painting (getting permission to do so and then having to repaint when she leaves.) She had heard of wall decals but really didn't know much about them. 

About Dali Decals (from their website):
"Dali Wall Decals are a great and inexpensive way to decorate your apartment, home, office, and more! We have hundreds of stock-designed wall decals that can be made in over 80 different colors to match just about any decor. Any of our stock-designed wall decals can be custom sized to suit your needs. We can also create custom wall decals! Instantly transform any room with a unique wall decal customized and made to order just for you! Wall decals are quicker, easier, and less expensive than painting. Our wall decals look painted on once installed. Plus, you can remove our wall decals at any time! We include step-by-step instructions and an application squeegee with every wall decal order. Our representatives are available around the clock via phone and/or email to help you with any questions you might have on custom wall decals or installing your wall decal.Wall decals are easy to install on just about any wall, smooth or textured, and are easily removable without damaging the wall. Our wall decals are removable, but not reusable. Our wall decals can also be applied to glass, and can be installed indoors, outdoors, and even on vehicles! We only use the best quality material available to create our wall decals!"
Brittany knew that she wanted to get something with her daughter's name on it for over her bed and there were a lot of really cute options to choose from. She ended up choosing the Cute Birds with Pennants design. She was expecting it to come as one solid decal, but she had to cut out around each bird and pennant. This was a good thing because it would have been difficult to put up by herself if it were one large piece. They do recommend that if you are installing a large decal to use two people. But since hers was  small she put it up alone. Brittany said it was way easier than she expected it to be!


She put up the first bird as a reference then taped each pennant and the other bird to the wall. The only problem that she encountered was putting this up while her daughter was running around tweeting like a bird! Each decal comes with detailed instructions and they have online support in case you do get confused.

That's the finished product! I really love how it turned out! Her mother has been looking for a way to spruce up her bathroom and Brittany recommended Dali Decals to her. This is a really cheap way to decorate any room in your house. These are perfect for renters like Brittany that have small children.  She is planning on some more decals in the near future! Highly recommended!

Dali Decals is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one of our readers! But in case you don't win (or can't wait to try them), they are also offering 5% off any order! Use coupon code: Sublime5off to receive this great offer!

The giveaway begins on 9/14 and ends on 9/28.

The review was completed by Brittany of the SAH&TW blog. She received the above products through Sublime Media Connection in exchange for an honest review. In no way was she asked to give a positive review.

Bee Free Honey Review

I was so excited to try out Bee Free Honee! Nope, that's not a spelling error. This product got it's name because there is no real honey in it, it's made from 4 simple ingredients: apple juice concentrate, beet sugar, lemon juice and water. 

I tried the Honee in my tea instead of the regular honey I normally use. Because the Honee has an apple scent, I was wondering how it would taste in the tea. I was surprised when it didn't really change the taste much, and I tasted no apple at all. I liked that a lot, although I probably wouldn't have minded a little bit of apple. 

I love that Bee Free Honee is an all natural product, as I mentioned before. The fact that there is not a single chemical or word I can't pronounce in the ingredients makes me feel so much safer. It's scary what is in the food and drinks we consume without even realizing it, and it's great to know that there are safe, natural products out there for us to feel good about consuming.

There are two more great points I'd like to cover. First is that Bee Free Honee is vegan, and I know that finding vegan alternatives is no easy task. Second, as a result of the decreasing bee population, the price of traditional honey is rising. This will not affect Bee Free Honey, so it is a cost-effective alternative as well.

Giant Microbes are a really fun way to learn about all things microbial! Giant Microbes are unique and memorable gift ideas that help the recipient to learn about different illnesses and viruses. They are available in vinyl action figures, plushies, and Christmas ornaments to name just a few.

Noxicare Pain Relief Cream Review

I was given the chance to try out Noxicare Natural Pain Relief Cream. I feel like I'm a great person to review a product like this because I have been in numerous accidents that cause me to have various aches and pains depending on the activity I do. Also, my boyfriend is an Ironworker and his body gets pretty beat up on the job, so he was excited to try Noxicare out too.

Here's some information about the product that was provide to me:
"Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief is a breakthrough natural, patented pain relief formula that is a proprietary combination of 7 of the world’s most potent natural pain relievers that quickly and effectively alleviate inflammation, muscle aches and nerve pain—with NO known side effects and without a prescription."

I really like Noxicare. It's not greasy or thick, it absorbed very well. There's no scent to it which is really nice compared to the other pain relief creams I've used in the past. I really like the tube it came in. It's a nice size and easy to use. 

I get really bad tension headaches when I'm on the computer for a long time, or I'm really tired, or really stressed. Basically I get them pretty often. I used the Noxicare on my head and it actually made the headache go away! While I can still feel a bit of an ache now and again, it's nothing compared to the pain I was in an hour ago. Finally, something that works! 

To learn about all of the other great products that Noxicare offers for things like arthritis and fibromyalgia you can check out their website. While you're there you can also see what is in Noxicare Natural Pain Reliever. You can also follow them on Twitter and Facebook.

Halloween T-shirt Review

I was very happy to try out this  Zombie Tuxedo T-Shirt From 

Jesse wearing the shirt. 
He had just gotten home from work (excuse the dirt) and wasn't in a picture taking mood. 

The shirt features a tattered tuxedo like look with a creepy glimpse into the inside of a persons body. Very creepy, but very cool. We both like the idea of the shirt and the graphic is pretty cool. The shirt fit well, true to size. 

Want to check out some cool Halloween party clothes for yourself? From various types of tux shirts (not just Halloween, there's Party, Santa and more) to creepy to cute, Halloween T-shirts has something for everyone. 
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Collapsible Boxes Review

Packaways Logo

I'm very excited that I got to review these collapsible boxes! They were SO easy to assemble  and flatten, they're strong, and I love the colors. Instant set-up with no tape needed, what could be better?

 Here's some product information from the company:
"Packaways is a brand new Storage Box that ships and stores in the flat position. When needed, simply press on opposing corners and the bottom "Automatically" folds into place and locks. When not in use, simply press on the bottom and the box folds back down flat for easy, out of the way storage. Ideal for homes, apartments or living quarters where use is intermitent and space is tight. Many applications: Moving; Back To School; Organizing The Kids' Rooms; Basement or Garage; Seasonal Items, etc. You can color code your things or have the colors match your decor. Proudly made in the U.S.A. from durable corrugated plastic. Great for harsh storage conditions or long-term storage since moisture and humidity won't effect the integrety of the boxes. Will last hundreds of cycles under normal circumstances. Many, many useful applications. Comes with 2 Wipe Away Panels that allow you to conveniently identify the contents of the box. If you use China Dry Erase Markers, you can simply Wipe Away the previous contents and remark the box. Please go to for more information."

Opened box.
There's a dry erase label on the side so you can re-label the box over and over.
I live in a very small apartment, and currently have a few cardboard boxes hanging around storing the things I can't find space for. I transferred the things from those boxes into my 2 new Packaways boxes and now the boxes aren't such an eyesore. 

Easy to close top. Just bend along the lines and tuck the flap into the cutouts.
No more fighting with the flaps! I always did hate that. 
I wish I had these in college! They would have made moving in and out of the dorms so much easier. You could just store them flat in the closet or under the bed till it was time to move again, instead of searching for boxes.  

Closed box. They close flat so you can stack them up.
I love the bright colors of the Packaways! They look so much better than the old cardboard boxes I was using. 

Handles so the boxes are easy to carry.
This would have been helpful in college, or when I moved a few months ago! 
 They are made of a great corrugated plastic that's much tougher thank a typical cardboard box. And one of my favorite things about the Packaways, they're made in the USA

Made in USA

 Make sure you check out their website to see what other types of boxes they have to offer, including under bed boxes and totes. You can also find Packaways on Facebook and YouTube.
