The Right Cup
My younger two kids never want to drink plain water when I give it to them. All they ever want is juice, sprite, and milk. Whenever I give them water, they always complain that this isn’t what they wanted and never drink it. There is now a cup that will “trick” your kids into thinking they are drinking flavored water. The way these cups work is there is a sweet taste and fruity aroma on the cup that will trick your brain into tasting what you’re smelling. There are no buttons or anything to switch on; all you do is pour in your water and drink.
The first time I gave this cup to my youngest son, all he saw was a colored cup. I told him it was just juice and when he drank it, he didn’t question it! I wasn’t going to tell him he was drinking water until he was done! He did get a little confused but he said he did like it and he wanted more! Even my youngest daughter drank from it and didn’t bat an eye! We got two cups to try, the flavors are orange and mixed berry. My oldest daughter really likes the orange one and whenever she gets water, I’ll catch her grabbing the orange cup so I know she loves it! There are 5 flavors you can choose from (mixed berry, orange, apple, peach, and cola) and each of them I know is going to be a hit with your whole family! I know my family loves it and yours will too!
About taken from indiegogo.com: When Isaac Lavi, the founder and CEO, was diagnosed with Diabetes at the age of 30, he Followed doctors’ orders, and kept away from drinking sugary beverages and drank only plain water. This was very hard as he hated the taste, or actually the lack of taste. Being an expert in the field of scent marketing, it was only natural, that he would seek a scented solution for his new problem. The result…. The Right Cup. After years of researching, prototyping, testing, and more testing , we’ve finally succeeded to produce our first working prototypes on January 2015!

I have been a fan of Hard Candy since they became a hit sensation in the mid-late 9o’s with the first shade of polish. I remember becoming so obsessed with all the bold colors, the glitter, and how they dared to be so different than any other makeup company on the shelves. Now in my mid 30’s, I still love Hard Candy and my teenage daughter is now a huge fan. Being able to review for a product that I love and believe in so much is such an honor. I would like to share another really awesome product; Look Pro! Metal Eyes. Like all of Hard Candy products, it’s available at Walmart.
Some people are really picky when it comes to eye shadow. Like my daughter likes her natural colors. Me, I have to be bold with bright colors. This really excited me when I got it 🙂 I comes with everything that you need for your eyes- the whole chrome eyeshadow kit. 4 highly pigmented metallic shadows, dual-ended eyeshadow brush, small eyeliner, setting spray liquid, and the mixing well. Use the well and the liquid setting spray to choose the intensity of the metallic effect. If you don’t want a strong look at all, you don’t have to add the liquid setting spray you can just use it dry as a normal eyeshadow. I think that they are beautiful this way, too! Using the setting spray gives it more of a liquidy glittery look. The kit comes in a nice tin with a hinged lid easily stored in your makeup bag. Below are the 4 steps to applying the kit according to the back of the makeup:
STEP 1: Dip brush in eyeshadow.
STEP 2: Mix eyeshadow with mixing liquid,
STEP 3: Apply to eyelids.
STEP 4: Apply as eyeliner.

One of the biggest issues I have with my purchases is how much product actually gets wasted and thrown out. I’m a big stickler on not liking to throw out food, I make sure there is no more toothpaste left in the tube and put water in the rest of the shampoo bottle to make sure it’s really gone. Waste not what not… right? You paid for your product, make sure you get it all. And I’m talking everything that you buy.. food, personal hygiene products and even your makeup and creams! The Spatty has been designed to help you get every last drop of your products. After seeing this on Shark Tank I was so excited to give it a try and when I was able to review it, I was even more excited!
By using the Spatty you will pay for your new tools within the first use! 15-25% of products are left in containers because they are no longer easy to get out. The Extend your Beauty Cosmetic Tool comes with 2 tools that help you access the left over lotions, creams or any makeup. The Spatty tools are the perfect size to fit into your cosmetic openings. The spatula type ends help get deep into the corners, sides and bottom of the containers that you can’t reach. Once you get the product out you can transfer it onto the surface of your choosing; makeup sponge, your finger, or directly to your face. Each tool has a different size handle for those different size containers.
The Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool is made of BPA free materials, FDA approved materials, and made in the USA. The tools are easy to clean, either you can throw it in the dishwasher or wash by hand with warm water and mild soap.

My 2 daughters and myself love to pamper each other by giving each other manis and pedis. I mean who wouldn’t really love that, plus a little mother/daughter bonding time? There are a few little holiday’s coming up and I always get my kids something small even for Valentine’s Day and I decided that SinfulColors Nail Polish was the perfect little treat. I fell in love with the beautiful colors and knew that she would also.
4 amazing spring colors came in a clear zipper pouch. All of the colors that I received are shades from the Kandee Johnson collections. Kandee takes modern colors and puts a vintage twist on them. I love all of the different colors, patterns, and shades!
Heart of Gold (gold glitter)
Kandee Pink (pink glitter)
I absolutely love the fact that SinfulColors are so affordable so that we can keep “collecting” all of Kandee’s colors and collections. My girls and I have so many different polishes and I really think that we have found our new favorite go to polish. We love that there are so many colors to choose from for all different walks of life. All three of us girls have different tastes in colors that we wear on our polishes, so it’s nice that there is such a wide variety. I like my purples and pinks and that’s what I put on my 2 year old usually with some glitter since she is so little and my oldest daughter usually picks teals and blues; or whatever fancies her moods. All of the colors that we received paired up together for great designs. Click HERE for other great ideas.
About (taken from website): Our story starts in 1991, when a team of visionary beauty experts developed SinfulColors for professional beauty stores. Their ability to anticipate the next “now” colors made an instant splash. In no time, SinfulColors spread its on-trend color appeal through retail stores and across the country. With vivid shades that pop, wow, flatter and inspire. In cream, glitter, shimmer and matte, and in formulas you want that provide full color coverage. All made in the USA, with the quality you expect from a leading nail brand, without formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.
