My Thoughts

These two varieties of Softsoap Luminous Oils Body Wash are just awesome! I tried them both, and it's hard to pick a favorite. They both have their own unique advantages. The Avocado Oil & Iris is an has a light flowery scent that reminds me that spring is on the way.  It leaves your skin smooth and glowing. 

The macadamia oil and peony is another fabulous formula.   It has a smooth feel to it, but still lathers nicely. If your skin is dried out from this harsh winter weather, this body wash will help restore your soft radiant skin. Using it is a very pampering experience. I love the subtle hint of peony,  and my skin has never been softer.

 I enjoyed both these products and have been switching back and forth between the two when I shower. Even the bottles with their bright colors and designs are uplifting and original. SoftSoap is an affordable way to get a spa experience right in your own home. So stock up and keep that fresh clean feeling with you all day long with a little help from Softsoap You can find these fun products in retailers nationwide including but not limited to Walmart, Target, and K-mart. To learn more about Softsoap and all the have to offer, be sure to visit their website or follow them on face book.

My Thoughts

The new Lalaloopsy Baby Mermaids are an adorable new addition to the family. We received the Coral Seashells doll and my daughter loves her, but decided to donate this one since she received so many toys in our last batch. Our community recently suffered severe flooding and many children lost all their toys. My daughter wanted to help them out and made several little girls very happy with a few Lalaloopsy dolls.

 Each mermaid set comes with the doll and an animal shaped bottle. The dolls have the same adorable button eyes that are the trade-mark of Lalaloopsy, but these dolls are extra special because they are waterproof. She also has a pretty fin and a pearl crown, none of which are detachable so they won't get lost.   Plus, it can be used as a water gun.

There is definitely a lot to love about these cute and well-made toys. They are fun to play with in the tub and will also be great for the pool come summertime. Once she dries off, she's as good as new. The material doesn't get moldy, the colors won't fade at all.

 The Lalaloopsy Baby Mermaid dolls are tons of fun.  You can also find the full collection of Lalaloopsy dolls in retailers nationwide or online on Amazon.  For more information and to meet all the characters, you can visit Lalaloopsy website.

Think Ahead to Summer with Platypus Australia

Are you dreaming of upcoming tropical (and warm weather) vacations perhaps for President¹s Day weekend, ski week, and spring break?  Platypus Australia is a company that makes stylish, safe swimwear and rash guards with maximum UV protection for the kids (blocking at least 97.5% of harmful UV radiation). Whether you are shopping for essentials to pack for your tropical vacation, ways to protect your kids skin in the sunshine or just looking for great swim fashion, they have you covered. 

The new 2016 collection  features fun, colorful new prints and adorable silhouettes.  Think seashells, floral and flamingos for the girls and sailboats, lobsters, retro island motifs and geometric shapes for the boys.  These will be available online starting next week. For now, let's take a peak at some of the designs from the 2015 collection.

My Thoughts

With temperatures in the teens this week, it might feel like summer is a million years away. Give yourself a little taste of the warmer weather today by checking out the adorable swimwear at Platypus Australia.  I've been looking to get a head start on summer by getting a swimsuit for my daughter. We live at the Jersey shore and we spend a lot of time at the beach. So we need a suit that is made to last. Platypus Australia had just what I was searching for. The Fru Fru Swimsuit is one piece that slides right on. There are no snaps or clips and the stitches are sturdy. I also love the beautiful  design.

My son also got to pick out a pair of swim trunks. For him, we kept things simple. The plain blue Swim Shorts from Platypus Australia are simple yet elegant and give him all the protection he needs. One of the things that really turned me on to Platypus Australia is that all of their swimwear is UPF 50+, which protects their skin from the harsh rays of the sun.  That means you get style and safety in one terrific package. Here are a few other styles I love:

Lil" Butters are adorable little action figures perfect for tween girls who are getting too big for baby dolls, but aren't quite ready to give up toys altogether.

Purchase plant stem cell therapy from Made from Earth and connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Google+

Our Thoughts
The stress of the last 10 years has slowly taken its toll on my skin, and I think I now look older than my years.  Or, at least, I look less than my age until I smile . . . then all the wrinkles appear. Not that I avoid smiling, haha . . .  Anyway, I love both making my own and trying out other natural skin care products but have not yet defeated those darn wrinkles. Made from Earth sent my their plant stem cell therapy to try.

Upon opening the jar, the fresh aroma wafted up and the scents I could most easily detect were the delicious scents of (organic) unrefined cocoa butter and the pink grapefruit (a hint of chocolate + citrus - yum!). The cream itself is very thick, yet light and fluffy when applied.  It goes on almost like it just melts into your skin, and does a very good job of moisturizing.  I have tried other products containing plant stem cells, and those so far are my favorites for skin repair.

So far, after using plant stem cell therapy I've noticed my skin looks firmer for about twice the length of time than any other product I've tried has done. Not enough to last all day by any means, or at least not yet.  At first I did use it on my whole face, but ended up having to go back to my own special blend for my T-zone, where I'm most prone to breakouts as I was finding this to not prevent new breakouts. And since my wrinkles are not in the T-zone, that leaves me free to use plant stem cell therapy directly on my facial wrinkles and any other dry, aging areas, like the backs of my hands. I am very interested to see what results plant stem cell therapy produces over the next few months.  It comes in a 2 oz jar, and you need so little that it will last a good long time.

I want to point out Made from Earth's How To Guide, which is full of great information on their ingredients, suggested regimens, tips & advice, and rosacea. I'd also love to try some of their Face Serums and their lip balms look divine, too!
