Review: Shatobu

About them:
ShaToBu - The Workout You Wear - is the revolutionary shaper that helps women shape, tone and burn more calories during everyday activities.

The benefits go beyond ordinary shapewear - ShaToBu instantly gives a sleeker silhouette, but women can also see and feel a difference in their bodies with regular use over time. By incorporating resistance bands right into the garment, muscles work a little harder and more calories are burned during daily activities.
ShaToBu helps women fit a workout into their normal day, while looking and feeling great.

My thoughts:
I chose to review the High Waist to Knee Shaper. I have worn these shapers before for weddings or special occasions and i was happy to find one that helps you burn more calories. (Gotta burn off that wedding cake right?)
The resistance bands in the shaper make walking and climbing stairs a little more difficult than usual, but that's the point.
Resistance = burn more calories = Skinner you. AWESOME! :)
This is something that could be worn everyday if you would like. Working out, special occasions, to work etc. It definitely gives you a more slimming look.
ShaToBu offers a variety of shapers in different styles, colors and sizes so there is something for everyone. I think this is one of those must have items every women should own. Like red high heels. Every woman should have a pair of red high heels. Put on a your ShaToBu, your little black dress and some red heels and you will be set for a night on the town!

 

Review: CSN Stores - Bar Stools

My husband and i are slowly but surely redecorating the house. The bathroom, Kitchen, guest bedroom and master bedroom are pretty much finished.

Now all we have left to conquer is the Living room. I'm very indecisive on what style i want to go with. So I'm starting with the small stuff and moving up from there.

I really want to get new bar stools. The ones we currently have are gorgeous but they are made of wood and are starting to fall apart.

I went to CSN Stores and they have a amazing array of them. Each barstool is very different because I'm having a hard time figuring out a style and theme for my living room. It was hard decision but I have narrowed my choices down to these four.
I cant decide if i want to go with a Mission Rustic look or more of a Shabby Chic look. Please leave comments and help me decided which set to choose! The design of my Living room is depending on you! (No pressure or anything!) :)

Review: ONE Bath and Beauty Products

About them:
 A new standard of green. One beautiful world begins with conscientious living. And conscientious living means preventing waste to save the planet, helping us all live more beautifully. ONE is committed to promoting natural beauty without compromising the beauty of the earth, providing eco-friendly products in recyclable, plastic-free packaging to rejuvenate the spirit and save the planet.


ONE takes eco-conscious to the next level, uniting superior natural ingredients and recyclable packaging to offer genuinely earth-friendly products. From pampering bath formulas to nourishing moisturizers, the entire collection is infused with rich essential oils, natural butters and delicate fragrance, energizing the mind and body with quality natural ingredients.
While some green brands stop at natural ingredients, ONE goes beyond healthy formulations by housing the collection in eco-conscious packaging. Because most recycling centers wont accept used plastic lotion and shampoo bottles that take over 1,000 years to biodegrade ONE exclusively packages its unprecedented collection in recyclable cardboard cartons and tins, housing nourishing, natural products in equally planet-friendly containers.

My thoughts:

ONE sent me the most amazing products to review!

First i received a Shea Body Butter called Citrus Peel. OH MY SPRINKLES!!!! It smells AMAZING!!!! Seriously the best thing my nostrils have ever had the chance of smelling.
Think of fresh oranges, lemons, grapefruits and a touch of sunshine infused to make a think silky smooth butter lotion that will wrap you in its sweet smell forever and ever. Leaving your thirsty skin healthy, refreshed and moisturised.
I'm telling you, you will not be able to get enough of this stuff! The body butter is thick but soaks into your skin quickly, leaving it as soft as a baby's bottom.
I also love that ONE products do not contain any artificial or harmful chemicals.
They use only the purest of ingredients and extracts.

One was also gracious enough to let me review the Shea Butter Lip Balm.
It comes in a cute little tin. The lip balm has a soft Shea Butter scent that will take you to the tropics. (Anything with Shea Butter or Coconut makes me want to go back to Hawaii.)
It leaves a buttery glow to your lips. But not so much where it feels greasy. It could also be a subtle gloss.



Definitely give these products a try! They would make great gift for others or you can just keep it all for yourself. (i wont tell i promise!)

My Thoughts:

First, the smell is amazing! I love how none of there product contain synthetic colors, fake fragrances or harsh chemicals.
The Lavender Body Lotion is amazing! Its light and soaks into your skin quickly without leaving you feeling sticky. Its very moisturising and i use it every night before going to bed.
I love taking hot baths to soak the stress away so i was really excited to try the French Lavender Bubble Bath. I also scatted in some of the French Lavender Bath Salts as well. The smell is not overpowering but soft and subtle The Bath Salt contains bits of pink salt that is great for your skin!
The Bubble Bath creates lots of bubbles with only a few drops so a little goes along way. I highly recommend giving EO Products a try! All there products are natural made with only the best and healthiest ingredients. Cant get much better than that!

Review and Giveaway: My Lip Stuff

About them:
My Lip Stuff's ultimate mission is to end the suffering of people with chapped lips all across the land. In the process, we strive to end animal testing and save the environment with chemical-free natural products!

Is this a tall order? Absolutely. But we are dedicated- and are willing to start small. If we all do our part our combined efforts will make a big impact on the future of the planet, & just maybe we'll find a cure for something-- even if it is just chapped lips!

My Lip Stuff's products are NEVER tested on animals & contain natural (from the earth) ingredients that are skin loving. Our products do NOT contain any harsh ingredients- and NEVER contain petroleum or mineral oil! We also do what we can by using recycled (and recyclable) materials whenever possible, and even using "green power" (power from renewable resources such as wind, water, or landfill gases-instead of oil). We also Drive a Hybrid, and use only fluorescent lighting (no incandescent bulbs here!).

In the end, We strive to create a natural product made from only the highest quality ingredients, with the least amount of impact on the environment and its inhabitants, for the lowest possible price.

My Thoughts:
I love this lip balm! First, My Lip Stuff has over 500 lip balm flavors to choose from! They really have every flavor you can think of! Second, all there lip balms are made of the finest natural oils and butters for the ultimate moisture. This lip balm leaves a smooth buttery texture on your lips which i personally prefer. I love that i don't have to keep reapplying it every few minutes, The balm stays on my lips and keeps them moisturized for at least an hour or two. If you are looking for a fantastic natural lip balm that really works and stays on your lips please go check out My Lip Stuff! The company also sells a vast array of natural bath and body products like natural Aromatherapy Bath Salts, Whipped Body butters, shaving cream and room spray. My Lips Stuff sent me 3 lip balms to try and review. The flavors are Gingersnaps and Jam, Candy Corn Butter cream and Blackberry! All are delicious, soothing and moisturizing. My personally favorite is the Gingersnaps and Jam. Its a unique combination of a spicy gingersnap with a hint of sweet home made jam. I highly recommend trying My Lip Stuff! Your chapped lips will not regret it and will love you forever!

My Lips Stuff has also been gracious enough to host a giveaway and offer one of my readers a random 6 Pack of Lip Balms!

Reivew: SaniManiPedi

About SaniManiPedi:
"SaniManiPedi is dedicated to providing high-quality manicure and pedicure products to minimize the risk of infection while visiting beauty salons and nail spas. The SaniManiPedi Liquid Solution is 100% natural - a proprietary formula using nature's richest moisturizers, cleansing oils and natural antiseptics.

SaniManiPedi is a green company, and all manicure and pedicure products come in eco-friendly packaging.
Ten percent of all profits are donated to children's charities. "
My thoughts:
I'm very picky where i go to get my nails and pedicures done. I always make sure the facilities and nail areas are clean and sanitized before i sit down to get my services done. I always worry about germs and cross contamination so i was so excited to do a review for SaniManiPedi! They sent me a kit that contained stainless steel nail tools and packets of sanitizing foot soak. I brought the tools and foot soak to my next pedicure appointment. My pedicurist said that she loved the tools, that they were of high quality, can easily be sanitized and she will recommend SaniManiPedi Kit to all her clients!
The Manicure and Pedicure Kit Contains Professional Grade:

Stainless steel nail clipper
Stainless steel pusher
Stainless steel cuticle nipper
Orange stick
File
Callus stone
Two samples of the SaniManiPedi Liquid Solution

Another thing i loved about this kit is that it comes in a little canvas organizer. It rolls up, ties tightly and you can fit it in your glove box of your car so you never forget it on those last minute appointments!
You are so much safer from cross contamination to bring your own nail tools to your appointments. I will definitely continue bringing my SaniManiPedi Kit!

Review: Eco Store USA

About them:
"Our eco friendly household cleaning products are as effective as the leading supermarket brands, and our body and baby care ranges are gentle on your skin and are simply beautiful to use. Our hand and body washes are made from naturally derived ingredients that gently cleanse, condition and nourish your skin. All of our products are made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals, that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce our carbon footprint."

Eco Store was gracious enough to let me review two awesome products!
The first was the Baby Sleepy Time Bath. I have a really hard time sleeping at night a lot. I thought why not give this Baby Bath Time stuff a shot? I know its for babies but it could work for me. When it came in the mail, right away i went and took a bath and added a few capsules of the Bath Time. I soaked in the hot bath for about 25 minutes. When i got out i felt very relaxed. I went to bed soon after the bath and slept great without waking! This stuff really works and has a very soothing lavender scent to it. Its perfect for everyone and i highly recommend trying it!                         
The second product i tried from Eco Store was the Citrus Based All Purpose Cleaner.
                I cannot tell you enough how much i love this stuff! I'm really sensitive to smells and my skin is also really sensitive. Its very difficult for me to find cleaning products that are natural, eco friendly and don't contain harmful chemicals. Then i tried Eco Store All Purpose Cleaner! The smell it leaves is a fresh natural scent. It didnt irritate my skin the slightest bit. I love that i could use it around kids and my dogs and wouldn't have to worry about harmful chemicals hurting them. Now i now many natural cleaners don't actually clean very well but this All Purpose Cleaner removes grime and other messes with ease and works great.
Also feel free to visit them on there Facebook page here and there Twitter page here.

My Thoughts:

Review and Giveaway: Soft Lips Lip Balm

If you know me you know I'm obsessed with lip stuff. I love gloss, lip balm, lipstick. You name it. But i always have a hard time finding lip products that keep my lips moistened and sun protected with out having to re-apply it every 5 minutes.
Then i tried Soft Lips.
First the flavors are amazing and they smell delicious! My personal favorite is the
Sugar Plum Berry.
Second, Soft Lips have 20 SPF in all their lip balm! So your lips will be protected from the suns harmful rays constantly!
Third, the Soft Lips lip balm has more of a butter texture than waxy which i prefer. I have tried waxy textured lip balm and they seem to never hold any moister on my lips and it feels like the balm  just stays on the surface of my lips. Not the case with Soft Lips though!  
Forth, I didn't have to keep applying it every 5 minutes. Once i applied it, it lasted at least a few hours!
I carry Soft Lips with me every where i go now. I keep one in my office drawer at work, one on my night stand table next to my bed, 2 in my purse and one in my make up bag.

Soft Lips have also been gracious enough to host a giveaway and offer one of my readers
