Fake Bake Bronzer Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


In the past I have worked with Fake Bake several times on their products. I have always been a fan of every product that I reviewed, so it was no surprise when I received their Bronzer I became of a fan of this product also.

When I received the Fake Bake Bronzer in the mail I will have to say that it was packaged with a lot of love and protection. It was wrapped in a lot of bubble wrap and also wrapped in hot pink tissue paper. This bronzer comes in a nice black box that has a hot pink Fake Bake design on the top. It also has on the side of the box in hot pink letters Bronzer so you know what is inside. I like that about the box that it has the product name on the side case I am in a hurry or I forgot what box it may be in.

The compact box it self is black with also the hot pink design on top that says Fake Bake. This product is paraben free and the net weight of the product is 10 grams. This bronzer is a face and body bronzing compact customized to blend with their Fake Bake Self Tanner. This product is safe on all skin tones and skin types, so you do not have to worry. I know personally I have to be careful in what products that I use o my skin because my skin is very sensitive. 

The only thing about this product that I do not like is it is hard to open it up. In a way that is not bad either because the product is protected. I like how this compact has a mirror inside and the bronzer it self had a piece of plastic over top of the bronzer to protect it. This product in my opinion is a very nice creamy bronzer that is easy to blend. It give your skin a very nice bronze and it blends well with my skin and give my skin a nice tone, shine and has shimmer all together. I would highly recommend using this product.

To be honest I knew from the start that I would love this product because all of the other product I have tried from Fake Bake I absolutely loved. I know that this product would not be different. I was surprised on the quality of this bronzer. I would recommend using it with your self tanner. You can find this product on their website with the link listed below.





Stunner of the Month Subscription Box Review

I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours.

It is officially summer and it is time to bring out those sunglasses. I have another great subscription box for you. It is call Stunner of the Month. This subscription box is where you get one pair of sunglasses shipped to your doorstep per month. I have seen a lot of different subscription boxes, but never sunglasses. I think this is a fun idea and a great concept. This subscription box is only $9/month and free shipping. How could you beat that. I know majority of the time if you want to buy sunglasses at the store you can not even buy them for that price. Stunner of the Month also offers $1.00 credit for every new member you refer, so send 9 friends over and have them buy the subscription service and you can get a free month. 

When I received my first subscription box in the mail it was a very small package. On top of the package it had a nice sticker on the top and it said Stunner. I opened up my box and there was a tiny screwdriver for my pair of sunglasses. I thought this would come in handy! I know at times I try to find a small screwdriver that will fit in my glasses and can never find one that actually fits. What came inside of my subscription box was two stickers one of sunglasses and another was a stunner sticker. Than I received a pink purple cloth case to put my sunglasses inside which was great that it came with that. Now for the good part I received a multi purple/white sunglasses. The frames are a little big but not to big. The sunglasses are great quality, durable and sturdy. They will be great for the summer months coming up. 

If you love sunglasses than this is the subscription box for you. For $9.00 a month is not bad at all. You would not be able to go to the store and pick up a decent pair of sunglasses for that price. I think it fun to get a box each month and wait for the surprise. I would recommend this subscription box it is fun box and reasonable price. If you want to find more information or get your first box you will find the link below.

Earthman Jack 1 Cover

The Earthman Jack Space Saga is a series of seven planned novels following the adventures of Jack Finnegan, and his journey from an unknown teenage slacker to one of the greatest heroes the universe has ever seen. Jack's saga spans many years, multiple planets, a couple of dimensions, and more cheesy one-liners than you can count.  As the story progresses, you’ll see Jack’s journey from the small-town underachiever he started out as on Earth, to a courageous hero who saves the galaxy from utter annihilation.  Along the way, Jack is helped out by an assortment of odd-ball allies, and meets some truly frightening and formidable villains as well. Oh yeah, there’s also an epic love story.  (You know, if you’re into that sort of thing.)

If you’re a fan of adventure, science fiction, fantasy, superheroes, true love, magic, and awesomeness, then you’ll definitely want to experience The Earthman Jack Space Saga for yourself! Check out My Review Here

Today I was sent a copy of a new DVD called Clue: A Movie Mystery Adventure. I have been always a huge fan of Clue and love a good mystery so I was excited to be able to review this DVD. 

A little bit about Clue: A  Movie Mystery Adventure-

"Six very different teenagers – Dimitri, Liz, Lucas, Agnes, Seamus and Whitney – are all enjoying their everyday lives when they witness a dramatic incident. Unfairly accused of creating a hoax, they team up to find out the truth. Today, Shout! Factory Kids, in collaboration with Hasbro Studios, will unleash the family mystery adventure Clue: A Movie Mystery Adventure on DVD. Join the young sleuths as they work together discovering and deciphering a succession of clues.

My overall thoughts about this dvd that it was decent. My 6 year old son thought it was great and the movie really made him think. This would make a great DVD if you are a Clue fan or if you like a good mystery. My son is a huge fan of mysteries and this DVD is great and keeps him on his toes. Although some 6 year olds may not be ready for this DVD. It would be a parents judgement. When I watched it with my son we were trying to figure it out and who did it and we could not figure it out. It was very clever and kept you guessing throughout the movie.

This would make a great DVD for older children and pre-teens. This would make a great party DVD or slumber party DVD. This DVD is currently Available on DVD and you can find it on Amazon or your local retailer.

My daughter always seem to have tangled hair. She has long hair down her back. My 3 year old hates having her hair brush. After her bath and in the morning she tends to try and hide from me, so I would not end up brushing her hair. I have been looking around for awhile to find the right brush for her hair. The brush that we currently have seems to be pulling her hair and it a nightmare. Recently I came across a company called SMOOBEE Magic no Cry Brush and I knew I had to try this product. 

I received a blue SMOOBEE for review and little gems to put on the brush. My daughter was very excited to use this brush and able to put gems on her new brush also. This made her feel special that she was able to make her brush her own. We received a light blue brush for review. After letting her design her brush I did the test and tried to brush her hair. I did spray her hair with detangled first so it would help the brushing experience. This brush glided through her hair and did not get tangled in her hair. She did not cry or fuss while brushing her hair. She was quite excited that the brushing went fast and easy and was not a huge fight. I have been using this brush for several days and she seems not to fight me as much and is more calm when I am brushing her hair. I would highly recommend this brush for your children. I also like how they have gems for your brush it give it that extra magical touch to it. I think that was my daughters favorite feature about the brush. You can find more information and this product at their website below.

I know as a parents I am always looking for new apps for my iPad for my children. Since school is out I like to have apps on my iPad so my son can refresh on what he learned in school so he is prepared for next year.

I have found several great apps for my son and my daughter to use over the summer. Kids Academy offers a variety of different apps that are educational that will help children brush up on their letter, numbers, reading and ect.

The first app that I was able to review was their Kids Academy Reading and Writing. My son is 6 years old and he has having a hard time with reading and this app is fun for him and helps him brush up on reading and writing. This app has has several different activities such as mazes, rhyming words, uppercase lesson, lowercase letters, short vowels, long vowels, and writing words. My son usually does not want to sit down and learn about vowels, letters, rhyming words and ect. This app helps make it fun and new where he will spend hours playing with this app. The great benefit is that he is learning from this app and having fun. 

The next app I was able to try their free version app preschool kids games kid puzzles and I was quite impressed. My daughter and son were able to try this app. Although my daughter like the app a little more than my son because he already new the basics that his app provided. Although it was a good summer refresher for him. My daughter loved the app and zipped through it. Her numbers are getting better and her hand and eye coordination. She is starting to get a feel of how to write the numbers and starting to understand her abcs. I would recommend Kid Academy apps for your children and they do help kids get an understand of numbers and abcs. This would be a great app to use during the summer to help your children prepare for preschool and kindergarten. You can find these apps on iTunes.
The last app that I was able to review was their BINGO app. My daughter enjoyed this app the most. This is a great app for children who love music. This helps teach younger children to learn songs, letters and sounds that animals make. I like how this app is very interactional app. My daughter just starting learning the BINGO song so she was very excited when she found that this app had it on there. She was going through the app pretty quickly and was able to use it with out any help. This app also let your child record their voice so they can hear their selves. It fun listening to the recording and hearing your child sing the song. This app was by far our favorite one and it was very fun. 
You can find these app on iTunes


SquareHue Subscription Box Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I have seen around a subscription box called SquareHue. SquareHue is a monthly nail polish subscription box. This subscription box offers three unique premium nail polishes. I was intrigued by this subscription box and was excited to be able to a month of the SquareHue box. 

In the box that I received, I received three different colors in my box. The box was really small and could fit in your mail box. I was concerned how small the box was because polish was inside. I was afraid that the polish bottles would break during shipping and handling. That has happen to me before, but now with SquareHue. When I open my box there where nicely situated and secured in the box. I received the Maui collection. In this collection I received and orange polish that is called Wailea and this is a hi gloss creme, Blue color that is called Ka'ahumanu and is a micro glitter and the last color is a green and this polish is called Ala Moana and is satin. 

The orange is a little bright for my taste, but it is a fun color and you never know. I really am fond of the green and blue color. They fit in my collection well. My daughter is very fond of the orange color and fits her personality well. SquareHue is their own brand and has a variety of different unique polishes. When you order their subscription box you will never get the same polish twice so you will not have to worry. When I read about their company I was impressed that their line of polishes are made in the USA and they are not tested on animals. 

If you love trying new nail polishes than this subscription is for you. SquareHue had a wide variety of different fun collections. The subscription retails for 14.99 a month plus 5 shipping and handing fee. This is a fun subscription with great quality nail polishes that are fun colors. The only thing that I am not sure about this subscription box is that I do not have much control over the colors I get. I would recommend this subscription box if your a nail polish addict. You can find their subscription box at
