Capturing Couture Camera Strap Review/Giveaway

A year or so ago I finally got my camera that I have been wanting for a long time. I got myself the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS 12.1MP Digital Camera w/ 35X Optical Zoom, which really zooms out. I absolutely love my camera. It takes clear images even in the dark. I have even been getting into taking some of my own photos with props and backgrounds with the kids. I have always wanted to get into photography but up until recently, I never had the right camera.

Unique Natural Products 'Complete Stain & Odor Remover' Review/Giveaway

As a mom with little ones, I am constantly looking for cleaning products that are safe and natural for the whole family. I want to make sure, when my kids are playing on the floor they are not rubbing their skin on any strong chemical products that I just used that can irritate their skin. With a baby soon to be here having natural eco friendly products are even more important. I want to make sure, when she starts rolling, crawling and of course chewing on her toys; there has not been any contact with harsh chemicals.

One thing that would be nice is a safe; eco friendly and effective cleaning product that helps takes care of those stains and odors that can develop after time. I was so happy when Unique Natural Products sent me one of their cleaning products to review. I received the Unique Complete Stain & Odor Remover perfect for those tough stains, nasty odors and at the same time safe to be around the whole family including pets.

Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar & Stain Remover Review/Giveaway

If you have kids then you know all about stains. You know the times when your little ones are playing outside and they get grass or mud stains. What about the moments when they come home from school and you are left wondering where in the world or what caused this spot? Then you cannot forget all of the moments when they are eating or drinking. I have found some good products that really help at getting stains out but the one thing I still have an issue with is grease left behind from greasy foods and hands. These stains really are hard to get out of things. When I received the Purex Fels-Naptha I was really excited to see if this would be the item to help with the grease issues that I encounter and have so much trouble getting rid of.
