Crowdtap & Woolite Review

I had the opportunity through Crowdtap to sample and share Woolite laundry detergent. I received 10 samples that I gave to my friends & co-workers to try out.

I have always thought you only used Woolite to wash your delicate clothes and only in cold water. But that's not the case any longer Woolite everyday laundry detergent can be use on all your clothes brights, white and dark's. I did tried the sample product and I love the way my clothes looked when they came out. My brights were bright  even my workout clothes looked so much cleaner and even smelled fresh. I like that a lot! 

Woolite everyday detergent won't cause shrinkage or stretching it has that wonderful clean fresh scent. Then there is Woolite darks detergent that won't cause dulling fading or loss of shape this has a Midnight Breeze scent. My clothes now are always #Woolitewashed. 
Woolite is for standard and HE washers.

All my opinions are my own.

Urban Decay's Oz The Great and Powerful Palette Review

I was lucky enough to have entered a sweepstakes and I won two Urban Decay palettes from http://www.dailymakeover.com/ twitter account. So I decide to do a review. The first palette I used was the Theodora palette. ( I will have a review at another time for Glinda palette)

I went to see this movie recently and I really enjoyed it as did my kids. I did pay attention to see what their makeup looked like as I wanted to do they same look. There are six new eyeshadows and that includes two never before seen duo shade. I haven't use the duo as of yet but to look at them I love the "spell" duo which is in the bottom row middle. It also comes with a 24/7 glide on pencil and a super saturated high gloss lip color pencil.

I'm really loving the Urban Decay Oz "Theodora" palette. The palette came with Get the Look card so I followed that and recreated Theodora makeup. I love the way the shadows went on so easy and their rich colors. As for the lip pencil color I think its a bit to bright for my complexion. It is 8 hour lasting lip color.

I did this review on my own free will and was not compensation.

Happy Earth Day 2013!

What a beautiful day today is the sun is shinning and its warm with a slight breeze a good sign of spring.
As I was driving to another town on Earth Day I saw high school students out cleaning up trash around their school. I know its a job that most people don't really want to do but in this day and age we must try to keep our home town clean. 
Its is a shame that some people need to throw their trash out the car windows instead of leaving it in their cars until they get home or even stop at a gas station and get rid of it there. 
We all really need to do our part in becoming Green Its really not hard to do either. In my home we recycle our magazines,cans,plastic & glass. We have a compost bin for all of our vegetable, fruit, eggshells, coffee grinds & even dryer lint and it makes our garden soil richer! 

There were elementary students in our town walking around and cleaning up too. They all look so happy to be helping and just maybe a bit excited to be out of school. 

I needed to do some food shopping today and when I was at the check out line I noticed that the cashier was bagging my products in brown paper bags I haven't seen them in a long long time. I said to her "Oh I see the store is into Earth Day too" she told me no the 3 & 4th graders in our Elementary school made these bags and gave them to us to use instead of the plastic bags. I really loved that they participated in Earth Day. I took pictures of those beautiful Earth Day bags they made.

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil Review

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil has not one but three uses (triple). I have tried two of the three.
I started with using this on my hair and I have noticed a big difference on the feel and look of my hair. My hair is naturally dry so I really need to add products to my hair so it doesn't look so drab and dry. I have tried many products and have been disappoint with the results. 
This Miracle Dry Oil is really a "miracle" for my hair! It transform my lifeless dry hair into shiny and soft hair and people have noticed. 

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil has olive, avocado and shea that nourishs without leaving all that oiliness and for me that perfect! You can use this on your face and skin. I haven't used it on my face but I have been using this after my daily showers as a moisturizer and it leaves my skin super soft to the touch and gives it a healthy shine. Thats going to be a plus when I start wearing my shorts and dress.  Im a Bzzagent & I #GotItFree
