I had the great experience to review Majestical Jewelry and to learn a little more about their super cute jewelry that fits any taste or budget. Earlier this week, I received their package in the mail and I could not wait to see what I was going to sample from them. I opened the well packaged mailer to find tortoise shell round earrings with gold accents. It came in a satin bag with a dark navy blue gift giving box. Here is what it looked like when I opened up the packaging and also an unclose pic of the earrings to see the nice detail.



Super cute, right??? Not only do they have these fashionable earrings, they also specialize in authentic silver, gemstone, pearls, fashion, gold and charms jewelry.  I took an up-close photo of the earrings recently and I cannot wait to post another photo soon since I have the perfect dress to match these earrings.


Ok, so my review: I normally go for modest jewelry during the week since I work from home while taking care of my 3 year old daughter but it is always nice to have jewelry to dress up a look for a nice night out with the hubby or visiting some of my girlfriends for a much needed drink on the weekend. The earrings are constructed nicely and will match many outfits as well as other jewelry I already have. My only concern is that the actual earring is a little heavy and I could only see myself wearing them for a few hours at a special occasion. It may just be that I am used to smaller diamond stud earrings though.

I wanted to see other jewelry from their online boutique style website and found a few items that I would love to add to my jewelry collection… and maybe this is a hint to the hubby for a nice birthday present or “just because” gift. Doesn’t every girl love “just because” gifts??? The featured items below are all on sale with free gift packaging PLUS free shipping on any orders $49.99 or more!

We couldn’t wait to try the KIND healthy bars so my daughter tried the Vanilla Blueberry and I decided to try one of my favorites, Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate. One word: YUMMY! The Vanilla Blueberry is baked from a foundation of 5 super grains, combined with all natural ingredients like blueberries. And for the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate bar is baked from a foundation of 5 super grains, combined with real ingredients like dark chocolate and roasted peanuts.

I must admit, I hate doing laundry! I don’t mind many of the chores that need to be done around the house, but laundry is the worst. I always seem to forget about the the clothes in the dryer since it takes so long for them to dry… I go about other tasks and finally remember later that night. Oh well…I guess I’ll have to de-wrinkle them tomorrow.


I had the opportunity to review EveryDayWillow’s ReusaWool Dryer Balls this weekend when I normally wash and dry the laundry. ReusaWool Dryer Balls are the natural solution for softening your clothes without chemicals. They help your clothes tumble dry faster by increasing circulation and can reduce drying time by up to half. Plus, no harsh additives that can irritate sensitive skin from dryer sheets. JACKPOT!


Three balls come in a box and you simply toss all three balls in the dryer with the wet clothes and press start. That’s it! No need to remove them when the laundry is done – just reuse for the next time. So I took the balls out of the box and added them to the wet laundry. They looked like white tennis balls but are made out of natural wool felt. They also come in 15 different colors that won’t harm your clothes. The natural fibers pick up a small amount of moisture at the beginning of the cycle and release it throughout the drying process. This creates a more even dry and reduces static.


The laundry usually takes over an hour or so to dry completely. The box and reading material says to check your clothes sooner than you’re used to since the clothes will dry faster than expected. And they were right. Just about a half an hour into the drying time, the clothes were almost completely dry! I put the dryer back on for another 10 minutes and the laundry was ready to be folded.


Why ReusaWool Dryer Balls?

  • Reduce Drying Time by up to half
  • 100% Natural Wool
  • Made in USA
  • They last forever!
  • Quiet – plastic dryer balls are loud and hard on your dryer.
  • Save over $20 each year in dryer sheets
  • Save money on electricity since drying time is less
  • Works on all types of clothes. Gentle

Any girl loves to try new makeup and I always find myself wandering down the health + beauty aisles in my local retail shops to find new products that are fast and easy to use since I have a busy, busy schedule with little time to apply make-up in the mornings.

I recently had the opportunity to test and review Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetics, where founder and CEO, Jeannie Price, believes “beauty and health go hand in hand and Mia’s high performance products, formulated with the most natural ingredients available, help you achieve vibrant beauty and health inside and out”.


The Mia Mariu beauty line ranges from botanical cleansers and moisturizers to revealing your “perfect canvas” with lightweight concealers, foundations, mineral blush, eye shadows and eyeliner.  The minerals offer you lightweight, long-lasting, non-pore blocking, breathable foundation that match your natural skin tone and create a healthy appearance with 3 simple steps. STEP 1 – APPLY PRIMER, STEP 2 – APPLY CONCEALER, STEP 3 – APPLY FOUNDATION.

I first went to the Mia Mariu website to find my Perfect Shade. My complexion closely resembles the Light Shade Family and chose the Perfecting Finish Mineral Cream Foundation in Vanilla (CCF01) as well as the Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer (CMP01) and Illuminating Magic Satin Blush (CCM02).


My full size samples arrived quickly and I was very excited to discover the difference between my traditional make-up versus the mineral ones from Mia Mariu. They even included a few samples of the moisturizer and cleansers to try, too. Look at all the goodies I was lucky to try out 😉

All of the Mia Mariu goodies that arrived for me to try!



The Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer creates a smooth facial canvas allowing the foundation to glide on seamlessly, leaving a fresh natural lok that lasts all day. It is recommended to apply after moisturizer and before concealer/foundation. I only used a little amount (dime size) and applied to my face after moisturizing. It created a smooth feel to my face but very lightweight. It absorbed quickly into my skin and there was no shine at all.

Mineral Primer


Next, I applied the Perfecting Finish Foundation in Vanilla for Light skin types.  The foundation delivers an oil-free, luminous, all-day coverage while delivering the benefits of natural minerals and vitamins. The cream foundation went on smoothly and blended nicely into my skin with no noticeable streaks. It has a soft, velvet touch and matched nicely to my light skin tone.

Perfecting Finish Mineral Cream Foundation


The final touch for your makeup … Magic Satin! Give your skin a beautiful glow with Magic Satin; made with Oats and Shea Butter, it provides your skin with a calming effect while revealing a healthy look anytime. It can be used on cheekbones, as an eye shadow base, and over lips. I LOVE THIS! I added it to my cheekbones as a bronzer to give my skin a nice glow. This was my favorite product since I am always looking for a subtle blush or bronzer for the winter months when my skin is lighter..but this will be amazing during the summer months to show off my nice tan, too.

Illuminating Magic Satin

Overall, I am completely satisfied and in love with all of the products I was able to test for Mia Mariu. Please show Mia Mariu your support by visiting their website, Facebook & Twitter.

With a one year old at home with me all day, I rarely have a chance to take a bubble bath let alone a shower to wash my hair.  I had the opportunity to review QwikShower Wipes and they were a lifesaver!


{About Qwik Shower Wipes}  QwikShower is a small family owned business in Olney, Maryland that specializes in wipes to “freshen up anywhere, anytime”.  The wipes measure 10″x12″ and are conveniently single wipe packaged to carry in your purse, gym bag, locker, back pack or car.  The wipes are moistened, single use, thick disposable towels when you do not have the time or location to take a shower.

The idea started in a local high school where kids could not shower after gym class or sports practices.  What a great alternative that can be quickly opened and used. And what even better is QwikShower can help with fundraisers for any organization.


{Product Review}  I have to admit that I wish I had more time to take care of myself since having my baby but all moms make scarifies to make sure their little ones are taken care of. I tried QwikShower wipes the other day when I had to take my daughter to her doctors appointment and did not have time to jump in the shower.  The packaging was easy to open the disposable towel was a lot softer than the baby wipes I normally use to freshen up.  The towel was a nice size and the whole process took only a few minutes.  I air dried quickly and I was then ready to get dress. Overall, I would recommend QwikShower wipes to my family and friends.


{Giveaway Details}  Our friends at QwikShower wipes have offered a full size 6-pack of QwikShower wipes to one of my luck readers.  So enter below using Rafflecopter and Good Luck!
