I am excited to share with you a new product from Nature's Gate. I am a huge fan of Nature's Gate Herbal Bland Hand Cream in Rose. this comes in 3fl oz. I am a huge fan of hand creams when it this time of year. My hands always seem to dry and I always turning to lotions to help my skin with dryness.

The Nature's Gate Herbal Blend Hand Cream collection includes Rose, Cherry Blossom and Orchid. I received Rose hand cream for review. Rose hand cream is rich in Vitamin C, nourish with antioxidants while Calendula and Sage Calm Dry skin.

What I like about Nature's Gate Herbal Blend Hand Cream that it is free of Paraben, Phthalates, Synthetic Frangrance, PEG, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Animal Derived Ingredients and is never tested on animals. All their products are vegan.

When I first tried this product I instantly like this product. The hand cream smelt really good. I have always been a fan of roses, so this product was an ideal match for me. The big test is how does it absorb and feel on my skin. I know personally for lotion if it feels greasy or doesn't absorb well I won't use it or give it away to someone else. I will admit I was quite impressed with this product and I will keep it. It absorbed quickly and my skin felt very soft which was a plus. I would defiantly recommend this product.

Lalaloopsy Easter Ideas

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.

Are you looking for that special gift to put in your daughter, granddaughter, nieces Easter Basket this year? Well why don't you put in Lalaloopsy Tinies or Lalaloopsy Girls Crazy Hair. These are two popular kids toys for girls. I am sure there may be boys who also like to play with these toys. Personally in my household these are my daughters favorite toys. 

Lalaloopsy recently has become very popular in my household and my daughter absolutely loves Lalaloopsy. She watches the television show on TV and also play with different Lalaloopsy toys. 

We received a mini 5 pack of Lalaloopsy Tinies for review. I thought this toy was very cleaver. We have a special little container of our Lalaloopsy Tinies. These tinies are about a couple inches tall and adorable. There are over 100 tinies of your favorite, original Lalaloopsy characters. What is also neat about the tinies you can do many things with them. You can just play with them normal or each tiny has holes where you can string them together so you can wear them. My daughter has a small doll house where she play with them. We don't have the specific Lalaloopsy Dollhouse but they do offer one for the Tinies. We may look into that in the future. I was worried at first overall will my daughter loose them because they are tiny. Sometimes my 4 year old daughter tends to lose smaller item toys. Although my daughter takes great care of her tinies and plays with them every day. I would highly recommend the tines for your daughters Easter Basket.

The next idea would be Lalaloopsy Girls Crazy Hair. I have been hearing about this toy everywhere. My daughter first saw this on TV. She had to have it. I also know that this specific toy has been popular with other little girls. This would make a great Easter Basket gift. Lalaloopsy Girls Crazy Hair comes in a few different ones. We received Confetti Carnivale Girl. This one specifically says that she was sewn from a masked ball gown and she is working on the perfect hair style for tonights ball. She is going for lots of twist and curls and of course tons of colors. This toy comes with the Lalaloopsy doll, bendy hair for the ball, 6 ways to style her hair, cut, lengthen, color, glitter, style and accessorize. It also includes extra bendy hair. This specific toy is so much fun. I will admit I had a lot of fun playing with this toy with my daughter. I would say it depends on the age of your daughter if they should play with it unsupervised. I supervised this toy with my daughter. I do allow her playing with just the doll by herself. She had so much fund putting the hair strips on and being creative. It was a little hard for her at times but it was because it was her first time and she was four. This is where I come in and help which is easy. This toy was just not fun for my daughter but also for me. It also brought quality fun time with my daughter and I what more can I ask for?

I would highly recommend these two Lalaloopsy toys and their other toys to make your special girls Easter Basket magical this year. You can find these toys at your Toy's R Us or your other local retailers.

This month has been the anniversary that I have been in college for just one year. I have three more years to go for my bachelors degree. The one major worry I have about college is not the work but how am I going to afford my text books. Since I am a single mom it can be a challenge for me to have enough for text books. We all know they can be pricey at times.
Well do not fear I have found a great solution for finding text books for reasonable price and not the outrageous price. Well I am here to introduce you to Campus Book Rentals. I know this will come in handy if your attending college like I am. Not only can you rent your textbooks from them you can all support Operation Smile organization. Which I think is amazing that Campus Book Rentals supports this organization. You may have heard about Operation Smile before or you may not. Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that helps heal children's smile.


 I know what you are thinking what are the benefits or perks of renting textbooks rather then buying them. I know I do not like buying books because what am I going to do with them after I am done with the class. Well here are the perks of renting text books for Campus Book Rentals. You can save anywhere from 40-90 percent off the bookstore prices, free shipping both ways, you can highlight in the textbooks, flexible renting periods, also they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook returned. How can you not benefit from Campus Book Rentals?

Also Campus Book Rentals is offering something new and that is RentBack. RentBack is a new initiative that allows college students rent textbooks. What it is if you have one of those old textbooks lying around you can rent them to other students who may need them. This is a great feature and you can make 2-4 times more through this option.  

I am a huge fan of Operation Smile and I think it is an amazing organization. Operation Smile helps children who have cleft lip and helps performs surgeries on children who can not afford these surgeries. Which I think is just amazing. 

Life is so much easier with Campus Book Rentals. I would highly recommend this service than just buying your text book. They have many options and they also donate to Operation Smile.
