Snazaroo Face painting party! Review and website coupon


Ok sometimes I apply to host parties just because I know this is something I would never think to take on on my own. That would be face painting. Almost all of the faces painted here were painted by me!! WHAT?? Yes I know it is actually pretty easy! Snazaroo sent several products along with a few idea books and we had fun painting faces. I liked the paint because it seemed very easy on the skin- I have a few kids with sensitive kids and there was no smell to the paint and it just felt very natural on their faces. It was also very easy to apply to their faces and the best part- when it was time to take it off- it didn't have to be super scrubbed off it came over very nicely in the shower with just water. I liked that they also sent some different sizes of brushes and some sponges as well. Right now with this code (TRYAZON)you 
can get 20% off their website through the month of October. Thank you to Tryazon and Snazaroo for just a great party experience we had so much fun! All product was given to me in return for my review. All the words here are my own.

Great product pack from Unilever- #Review

I always enjoy getting products sent to me by Crowdtap- this package was a great one and if I smell bad in the next month or two then it can only be my fault because they set me up to smell great. I usually use Degree but I hadn't yet used the motionsense one and I have really enjoyed using both of them. They are a great product for using when I am running or working out. My girls have stolen my dry shampoo because they don't like to shower every day. I much prefer the one on the left because it smells so good. I also have enjoyed using the body bar although usually I use body wash. Unilever is a great company and has a lot of different brands these are just a few of them. Thank you Crowdtap and Unilever for the free samples and making me smell so good. All the words here are my own.

August Freebies and Survey Earnings

Once again it is almost the FOLLOWING month and I am finally getting back to the end of August. Life has just been crazy I have decided I will never get caught up although now that Sunday football is here Sunday afternoons are or soon will be devoted to more chilling and getting surveys done while watching football! This month I want to point out the rebates we got from Lowes. I am not sure how often they will do this but they had two different time frames where if you took a picture of your receipt and sent it in they would give back about 10-11 percent! We were working on a deck at that time so we excited to get so much money back. My thought here is just make sure you know what stores have to offer because you could be missing something. I also need to point out that Opinion Outpost is my most consistent payout. I have made $20 a month from them every month this year. They do send a lot of emails and I don't always qualify but I love being guaranteed cash. We had two awesome parties from Tryazon again last month. I love this company.

Horizon Organic Good and Go #Review

Finding healthy snacks to take on the road are often hard to find but we have found a good one for our family. Horizon now has organic snack packs to take on the road or eat at home whatever floats your boat. So far I have seen three varieties cheese and pretzels, cheese and dried fruit, and cheese and dried berries and nuts. My kids love the cheese a lot and I like that they are healthy. We look forward to more flavors and will be taking these to all the volleyball games we have to go to in the next few weeks. 

This post was sponsored by Horizon as part of a sampling activation for Crowdtap. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Great new products from Disney thank you Tryazon!

School is back in session here and we wanted to do something fun with little J's preschool class as a welcome back- so we were THRILLED when Tryazon chose us to host a Disney Animal World party. There is a new program that Disney has come out with where you can order books and each book comes with a toy or two- usually either an animal or a Disney character.
Each book has a few sections in it and takes about 15-20 minutes to read it starts with a story with the animals and a Disney character and then it talks about the animal that is on the cover of the book, then there is usually two or three other animals that it also talks about with real pictures of the animals following that is a searc and find and it ends with a bedtime story told again by a Disney character. My little guy enjoyed the books and also enjoyed holding the animals that went with each book as we read them. When the preschool class came over there were plenty of books and toys to go around and everyone seemed to enjoy them. Each book can be sent four about 10 dollars along with the toys that come with each book, however it's not a one book a month it is more of a 4 books at a time thing. With options to stop at any time. We were very impressed and think the books are all great :)

Thank you Tryazon and Eaglemoss for letting us host this great party.

BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry Gel Pens #Review

As a left hander it has always been hard for me to be able to use gel pens. I think they are so fun to use but then I will see that my hand  has smeared the whole thing and it looks tacky and I will just give up and use a regular boring "normal" pen. However when the BIC Gel-ocity Quick Dry Gel pens showed up at my house my life changed. All of a sudden there were gel pens in AMAZING colors that I could use. My set was only a three pack with pink, purple and bright blue but the set available in stores has about six or seven colors (I can't wait to find them my Walmart didn't have them yet) The colors are vivid and just pop off the page- without smearing. This lefty is happy, but I have to find them in stores because my two daughters also love them and keep stealing them from me.

I received a free sample from Smiley360 in exchange for my review of this product, all the words stated here are my own.

Word Slam Board game #Review

It's no secret that my family loves board games- so I always LOVE with Tryazon has new ones to try with our friends and family. We got to play this game with people from ages 92 (my grandpa who unfortunately I didn't get in one of these pictures) all the way down to my daughter who is 11 (and honestly one of the best players on both teams!) The game is a word guessing game sounds simple, easy, and already done right? Wrong! The rules are the person who knows the word can not talk, or make motions other than pointing at the word cards that they have placed in front of their teammates to see if they can get them to figure it out. There is a pile of verbs, adjectives, nouns and prepositions to choose from, and you have a certain amount of time to say the answer. The other team is going with the same word at the same time and sometimes I tried to hear what their guesses were to help my guesses along (completely legal but it sure didn't help my team! ) This game comes from a company called Thames And Kosmos and they have a BUNCH of cool things on their website! They have a game called Exit the game which is like the big craze of locked rooms and a time limit- Kiah is begging me to get one. They are only one time use games but only cost $15 a piece and there are several to choose from. I really want to get one for our next couples game night!

Thank you Tryazon and Thames and Kosmos for the free board game- I did not receive any other compensation and all the words here are my own.

Tostitos® Splash of Lime Flavored Chunky Salsa review

There is not much I like more than some good chips and salsa, so I was super excited when I got the opportunity to try the new one from Tostitos. Summer just isn't summer without chips and salsa! The new flavor from Tostitos is touch of lime. I thought it was pretty good although I do always prefer to have homemade salsa this was nice for a change. I liked the lime taste it was pretty obvious that it was there. I also loved the Simply Organic scoop chips as well. They were a great pairing. Thank you to MyMagazine Sharing Network and Tostitos for letting me have a free sample of this product. All the words and opinions here are my own.

June Freebies and Samples

I have been SO. FAR. BEHIND. (I am posting June as being done on July 29th if that makes the point anymore clear. I am finally getting to where I am not as behind thanks to Kjell giving me two days to have a "sabbatical" I was supposed to go out of town with a friend to help her drive to Kentucky and while there I was going to just hang out a lot and get caught up on e-mails and scrapbooking but we ended up not going so I told Kjell please give me that time and he did. I managed each day to get through about 200-250 emails get in my 10,000 steps for each day AND work on CASA stuff. I felt so productive and it is funny when I am caught up on recent emails I don't get as many because I no longer get reminders as to needing to do surveys I am behind on. So maybe I will get July done before middle of August. So here is the list of what I got this month. Not gonna lie- I kind of fell of the wagon remembering to write down all my magazines so there may have been more than what I have listed. TRYING to stop getting so many though I just don't have time to read them.
