Mixbook Thank You Cards Review




Mixbook is a great place to get photo cards for a great price and it's very easy to follow the procedures to customize them. You can upload your own photo, and choose from many different backgrounds, fonts, designs, and stickers to put on your cards.  It's also fun and easy to use Mixbook.
I received a set of thank you cards from Mixbook! I love that I was able to customize what they say, so I made them say "Just wanted to say..." so that I can write Thank you myself on the other side.   I put a picture of my pups on the front and I just love the way it all turned out. I couldn't be more pleased!!

Mixbook has a great Facebook page you can Like for more information on their specials and deals and also a Twitter page that I suggest you follow. Reviews must be posted within 2 weeks of receiving product(s).


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Snooki Pulls a HUGE Fashion No-No

Regardless of whether or not she may be pregnant, Snooki was photographed out and about on Tuesday and I just couldn't resist but to post this on my blog and point out a few things that she should NOT have done.  I am a huge fan of animal print but there are many rules with how to wear it and what you can wear it with. 


1.  A Zebra Bag - No way, she should have just had a plain colored handbag or clutch.  Heck, even a leopard print embellished bag would be a little better than this.


2. Zebra earrings - Not only are they huge and gaudy but they DO NOT look right with the rest of her outfit. It makes it extremely tacky and gaudy.  Atleast in my opinion.


3.  Her shoes are a different shade of leopard print then her top so it looks kind of confusing. It just looks  too busy.  I just don't know where to look at this girl!!

So let this be a lesson for you all!!!

So my challenge today is - What bag, shoes, and earrings would you have worn with this outfit?  Post in a comment below!!

Worst Dressed at the Oscars


What is she giving herself away as a present?


I feel like I'm at a wedding.



Sometimes I wonder if the people who set things up for these events do this because they are trying to get a new look out from the designer.  So maybe I can't entirely blame the actual celebrity, but you have to wonder, do they think they will look good?

The Best Clutch EVER!! (&Giveaway!!)


This is one of my favorite clutches EVER. Why? Because not only is it a clutch but it changes into a purse, AND it fits perfectly in my grip! This is the Melie Bianco Edith Top Handle Framed Bag.  And at Silvia's Handbags, you can get it for  $65.00.

It comes in other colors besides the black one I have but I really love how it goes with everything. It's so versatile.  It is big enough to fit my wallet (which is huge might I add), my keys, phone, and chapstick.

 And I love the handle because unlike my other clutches, it won't fall out of my hands!  It measures 9x7x2 and as you can see in my pictures it is the perfect size to fit in your hands! 

Now, you can win an Ariana bag from Silvia's Handbags!

Represent Good Music Through Fashion

One of my favorite things to see if someone representing a great musician through fashion. Usually it's in the form of a shirt.  And at Slingshot Tshirts you can do that easily when you choose from a selection of music tshirts. I love Bob Marley, so this one really stood out to me.


It's a great way to get people to think about that person, song, or music genre even if it's just for a split second.  Plus it says a little bit about the kind of stuff your into and the kind of music you like. What shirt would you get to represent your musical tastes?

How You Can Prevent Tear Stains on Your Pooch

Ever see those dark stains on a long-haired dog's eyes?  Well, you know there is a way to prevent that.    It's called Angel Eyes and you sprinkle it on your pet's food and it helps to clear it up.  It's not harmful to them and contains healthy natural ingredients.



You can purchase Angel Eyes at Bloomingtails!

Hot Biker Tshirts Review




I found a great website for Hot Biker Tshirts which help throw a little rebellion into everyone's wardrobe.  They have some pretty rad designs on their shirts and let me tell you the material is super soft!! 

I received the Route 66 shirt with bullet holes in the back.  The bullet holes look so realistic! I love it. Not only is it super soft and comfy but it's a very true fit and I like to wear it around the house and even when I go on runs!  There are so many other designs on their website that would make a great addition to anyone's wardrobe even if you have never even rode a motorcycle!


 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

My Top 3 Best Dresses at the Academy Awards


Gwyneth Paltrow looked stunning in this white dress.  I love how sleek her hair was and although white intimidates me with skin tones, it went great with hers.


Cameron Diaz! Love the flowy-ness of this dress! It fits her perfectly!





Penelope Cruz looked so amazing in this gorgeous gown. The color goes great with her skin and her hair.  I love how it wraps around her at the top. So natural!

Sticars Review


Sticars are a great way to spice up your keyboard AND protect it from crumbs, hair, dust, dirt, and other icky things that get in there on a daily basis!  Sticars come in awesome designs from retro to camo! 

I received a peace sign Sticar.  It fits perfectly on my laptop and it is easy to put on and didn’t make it difficult to type.  If anything, it was easier for me to type.  It also kept SO MUCH out of my keyboard. It’s scary to think of how many crumbs get inside.

My Advice:  Protect your keyboard, and keep it fashionable with a nicely designed one from Sticars!

I received no monetary compensation for this review. I received a product sample for the purpose of my review. All opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.


Ark Laptop Sleeve

I take my laptop with me wherever I go so it's important for me to protect it.  I pretty much look at it as an investment, one that I don't want to scratch up and dent. So, I was thrilled when Ark Clothes sent me this super soft laptop sleeve.

It easily fits my laptop and it's easy to carry or put inside a tote or other bag.  I really like how easy it is to slip my laptop in and out.  This is leather so it's great quality and I love how soft it is!!!

I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a sample for review. All opinions are my own.

Optari Review & *Giveaway* Ends 2/29

Optari  is a fun website that offers totes and backpacks that you can decorate and customize to suit your tastes! This is an especially fun idea for kids since they love customizing things and then showing them off to their friends.


I received one of their items, a Sol Tote, in green. It was super fun to decorate it and it was really easy to do it. I had my friend’s daughter with me and she had a blast!! The tote is really cool because unlike most children’s totes, this one is definitely kid proof. If they drop it in water, it’s okay! They aren’t made of fabric so they are especially useful as beach bags or diaper bags!!
My Advice: Make beach and pool trips more fun, or just allow your daughter to customize a purse of her own by purchasing a backpack or tote from Optari!
One lucky winner will receive a Sol Tote in the color of their choice!

My Experience with the New Designs of Nail Stickers from Sally Hansen

Ok, so I hav posted before about the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Stickers but I am so excited because recently they came out with a whole bunch more designs. Here are a few of them that I have used over the past month or so! I am so addicted!



I love how the designs are so much more different and detailed now. They are still easy to get on (after the first time) and I use clear coat over them every couple of days to prevent tearing and chipping.

I know, the $8 price is redic but the papers have coupons for them sometimes so that helps!  Anyone else use these? 

Melie Bianco Drew Tote at Silvia's Handbags


I'm in love once again with a bag!!  It's from Silvia's Handbags (ofcourse) and it's the Melie Bianco Drew Tote! I love totes because you can fit so much in them and they are great when you have to carry them and things like shopping or grocery bags, because they go over your shoulder so you can carry more bags.  This bag is great because it's expandable! It comes in black, grey, and brown and measures 12.75" x 13" x 4" with a 54" long adjustable crossbody/shoulder strap.

Altru Apparel Review


Altru Apparel is one of my favorite places to get tops for almost any occasion.  My favorite outfit is a simple pair of leggings and a longer tunic style top.  Simple T shirts are the best but sometimes you need a little design on them to help dress your look up.  Well, Altru Apparel is perfect for that because their apparel is covered with catchy phrases, famous quotes and movie lines, and gorgeous images. 

I received 2 tops from Altru Apparel.  The one says Une Femme Fatale and I love the image on it. It’s so feminine and the color is absolutely gorgeous. I wore this with a pair of black leggings and black combat boots and I got so many compliments.  I was so comfortable in it and it was so soft. I also received a New York Times MusicShirt.  I love how it looks good with jeans OR leggings. And it was fun to layer as well.

Check out Altru Apparel today.  Celebrities everywhere are wearing it!

Everyone seems to be stuck inside because it's so cold and icky out, and your dog is no different.  But you can now keep him entertained with interactive dog toys.  Check out the Nebo Ball from Bloomingtails.  It's a treat dispensing ball and a great fetch toy. If you aren't around to throw it for your dog, he can just enjoy it by tossing it himself, or trying to get the treats out!

Anjolee Review


Anjolee is a jewelry website where you can find a great selection of diamond necklaces.   The prices are so fair and the selection is amazing.  Each diamond necklace is beautiful and detailed.  The products on their website would make great gifts since they are so fancy yet affordable. Everything is so classy!

I received a diamond tennis necklace from Anjolee and I am in love with it. It's so dainty but so sparkly. It catches everyone's eye and I admire it everytime I look in the mirror. The best part is, it doesn't get in the way during my normal daily activity.

Newman's Own Organics Review



Newman’s Own Organics has a great selection of both healthy food for humans AND for animals.  Everything is all natural, and organic.  This ensures your pet the best nutrition out there.  There is no artificial flavors and colors and harmful toxins included in the recipes.

I received many samples of Newman’s Own Organics for my pets.  The dry kibble food was a big hit. It was easy for my dog’s to eat.  The wet food was a huge treat for them and they spun in circles before I would give it to them. There were also several dog treats and let me tell you, they were easy for my dog’s to chew and they didn’t choke. That was a huge relief for me.  A lot of what’s in dog food can make them shed as well, with ingredients they can be allergic to such as corn, wheat, and soy.  My pups had no shedding issues from this food.  I highly recommend it!

My Advice: Feed your pet food of the highest quality. It’s just as important as eating healthy yourself!
