Mattie Cakes Fingernail Polish Review/Giveaway

Mattie Cakes sent me their rainbow sprinkle pearl with beautiful glitters to review. My daughter loved it. Her nails are pretty small so I used mine for the picture.

This is a great polish, though I think for my daughters small hands the creme polish would be better. One coat of the polish looks like this.It has a slight pinkish base. It goes on very smooth and you have to move the brush around to get more of the sparkles on. That being said, this is a wonderful polish. I put a coat over my blue toenail polish and a week later it is still there!! I will spare you the pictures of my toes since I havent had a pedicure in years. ;) Hey, I'm a mom of a tot! Who has time for that? Im too busy writing this up for you in the wee hours of the night!
My favorite thing about Mattie Cakes Polish is this:
"water-based, quick drying, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, animal friendly, free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, bisphenol A, camphor, alcohol, nitrocellulose, acetones/acetates, synthetic colors, FD & C dyes or any artificial dyes, and there are no toxic fumes or synthetic preservatives. Our nail polish is safe for pregnant women, dogs, cancer patients and cancer survivors."

This is a definite must have for those concerned about chemicals on their children, pets, or themselves.

Skoy Cloth review and giveaway

Skoy Cloth sent me this cute package of reusable "paper towels" to try out. They are biodegradable, reusable, absorbant and super fun.

Skoy Cloth also has school fundraisers on their site.

At first I didnt see the huge deal. Boy was I wrong!! These handy little towels are pure genius. One towel replaces FIFTEEN rolls of paper towels. Brilliance!
My first test was to see how much liquid these could hold. I layed it on the counter and poured 2 ounces of water and waited for the magic. It turned from a cardboard texture into a super soft towel.
I poured a litle bit more water on it (2.5 ounces total) and lifted it up, this is what i got.

I squeezed the water out and cleaned away. I gave my daughter one with 50/50 vinegar and water. I let her go to town cleaning. It cleans windows like a breeze with no paper towel lint behind! I also cleaned shower scum, sinks, dashboard of my car (which I thought was clean - NOT), counters, toys and so many other surfaces. These little towels are very deceiving and such an AWESOME product.


This is what they look like after they dry. All you do is wet and reuse." rel="nofollow">a Rafflecopter giveaway

Twistbands Review and Giveaway

HELLO is right.
Twistbands where have you been all my life?! These ponybands dont break your hair or leave unsightly dents!!!

Having an active four year old in the house makes having a hairstyle a bit tougher. I am in the midst of trying to grow my hair out, so these beauties have enhanced my life tremendously. I wear my hair back alot with the warm weather and chauffering my daughter to school and activities. I love that they are more stylish than just an elastic band on my wrist.

Their website says "Twistbands are ponybands and headbands made of elastic trim. They stretch to support any hairstyle, yet are slim and sleek enough to wear on your wrist when you want to let your hair down."

 There is also a Twist band club with auto shipments each month. GROOVY!

Now for the chance to get your very own Twistband Skinnies!" rel="nofollow">a Rafflecopter giveaway

Rockin Green Laundry Detergent

I received 3 samples of Rockin' Green Laundry detergent for my opinion.

Upon receiving i was suprised to find out that it only took 1 tablespoon of detergent in our HE washer. When i opened each of the packets the smell was faint and not strong at all. I poured it into the detergent drawer and it was plain white and looked live normal detergent.
After washing and drying there was no smell of dirt or detergent. PERFECT! The clothes were soft and scent free. Another thing I noticed was no static. I dont use dryer sheets so this was a welcomed benefit.

Strong smells bother me. I am glad that this detergent isnt one that has a stong after scent. I would imagine those with allergies or smell sensitivities would love this.
Rockin' Green also has a military facebook page.
They have the following scents:
  • Mighty Mighty Marshmallow - it's sweet and nutty, and very mighty!
  • Smashing Watermelons- this juicy watermelon blend is like a kick to your senses..Best Seller!
  • Earth, Wind & Orchids- this scent is flowered with inviting hints of tartness, floral, woods, honeysuckles and sugar. *NEW*
  • Rage against the Raspberry- this raspberry and honey blend will have you running around the laundry room looking for the mosh pit! Best Seller!
  • Mötley Cleän - there's clean and then there's Mötley Cleän. This fresh blend has hints of ocean, fresh linen, and sunshine.
  • Lavender Mint Revival- this medley of lavender and mint is like nothing you have heard or smelled before!
  • Bare Naked Babies- because we love the smell of babies, we offer an unscented variety too!
