Enjoy the sun on a Sand Cloud beach towel



I love going to the beach. I don't mind the sand in my toes or clothes for that matter until I'm leaving and I can't get it off. I bring towels but if we have to dry off with those towels they can't be full of sand. I have used bed blankets but they are heavy and bulky so that makes them uncomfortable to carry. Plus they don't repel sand infact they seem like a sand magnet. So when I saw the Sand Cloud beach blanket I knew it would be an amazing product to review.

They have the most adorable colors to chose from but I went with the Sunset Orange. Orange screams summer to me because it is so bright and cheery. The blanket itself is really cute with orange and white stripes and fringes on the ends. It's very light weight and has a built in roll pillow that can be removed for washing.

The blanket is large enough to lay on with extra room for supplies or in my case children. You know they will all run to get on it with me and I'm fine with that. This is roomy enough for all of us to have a comfortable sand free place to sit. Now the pillow is going to be all mine when... well if I get time alone to lay down and tan.



The blanket would be great a picnic blanket too so I can think of a lot of uses for this cute blanket.

I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest uncompensated review but the opinion expressed is all mine. Regardless I only recommend products that I feel are good for my readers.

It was there, four generations ago, that Giovanni Colavita founded the family olive oil tradition and Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil was born. Over the years, theColavita family became masters at the delicate crafts of "tasting" and blending extra virgin oils from different types of olives grown in Apulia and nearby regions. This skill enabled the family to produce 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil with a consistent fine quality – a skill that sets Colavita apart today from the other leading brands.


Today, the Colavita’s main focus is still bringing consumers authentic Italian extra virgin olive oil; however, the Colavita brand has grown to include many other quality specialty food products that are sold in over 60 countries. Colavita durum wheat semolina pasta, a full selection of balsamic and wine vinegars, traditional and organic pasta sauces, ready-to-serve soups and marinated vegetables, and olive-canola blended oils are the ingredients of choice for chefs in home, restaurant, and professional kitchens worldwide. This looks amazing. This would be a great prize for any food lover or someone who loves to cook.

Personalized Letter Package from Santa Giveaway

http://alwaysblabbing.blogspot.com/2014/11/personalized-letter-package-from-santa.html




When I saw this Personalized letter from Santa I couldn't wait for my kids to get one. I had a feeling that my children would LOVE it.  I have ordered letters from Santa but this was unique in that it has little "gifts" inside. They all happened to be home sick the day the package arrived. When I called them all to the kitchen their little eyes lit up when I told them they had mail. My oldest checked the mail and immediately said "that looks like it came from Santa" 




Now did he read the stamp? I don't know but the stamp makes it very obvious because it is marked "from the North Pole". I thought this was a great touch because I had nothing to hide or explain. 

Every year my children write letters to Santa with a Christmas list attached. I love seeing their little faces when they believe Santa responded to their letter personally. In the ordering process for this package you personalize it with their name and their Santa list so they think Santa "really" knows what they have asked for.

Speaking of ordering process, that was so simple. It took maybe 10 minutes to personalize and check out.  The package arrived EXTREMELY quickly so you have plenty of time to get on to your little one before Christmas.  



I was very impressed when I opened the package and the children were amazed. There is a letter from Santa, Rudolph,  and a nice list certificate. In addition to those there is stickers and a card with a setting they can decorate plus 4 Christmas tattoos. My children were so excited about the tattoos. 


The certificate is adorable and has Santa and Rudolph's signature.  I think any child would be amazed to get this package and it would make their day. 

One of you have the chance to win your own Personalized Letter Package from Santa so I have to go over the rules. 

Entries will be accepted from 11/26/14 - 12/10/14

Good luck remember one winner will be randomly chosen through the RaffleCopter. You MUST be following me on Twitter or GFC or like alwaysblabbing on FaceBook to be eligible to win.

Michael Todd's Soniclear - Cleaner brushes means cleaner skin


I was super excited when I was chosen to review Michael Todd's Soniclear the World's First Antimicrobial Sonic Skin Cleansing System. I have used other cleaning systems so I wondered if they are all that different. Michael Todd's is unique before you use it because it starts off  a cleaner brush which in turn gives us cleaner skin. I is powerful, yet gentle enough it's good even for sensitive skin. . Removes makeup 6x better and cleanses 2x better than with hands alone.

Did you know stain and odor causing bacteria can grow on brushes when skin cells, makeup and moisture combine with bacteria that cling to bristles between cleanings?  I'm sure I should have know this before now but it was nothing I gave much thought to. I'm sure that's why it's recommended replacing brush heads and sponges often. The Soniclear is different because it protects itself from microbial contamination after it micro-massages away dirt and impurities.


Soniclear also helps improve skin tone, reduced breakouts, better absorption of skincare products and overall better appearance of skin. Each kit comes with 1 Soniclear Device, 1 Facial Brush Head with Cover, 1 Body Brush Head with Cover, 1 Charging Stand, and 1 Charging Cord.

The Soniclear has a brush for the face and body so that is also different from my other cleaning system. I like the cases on the brushes and they have holes in them to drain the excess water. I'm sure that helps a lot with keeping them cleaner.





The base is bigger than my other system as well which makes it easy to grip so holding it is easier as well. Of course I love the color since it is purple! The face brush is a nice size and feels amazing on my face. I like the second setting which is the middle speed. I feel it working but it's not vibrating my teeth out. Okay NONE of the nine speed settings are that strong but that is just my preference.

My face feels amazing after using the Soniclear for a week. I have used it with numerous different cleansing soaps and it does make most of them lather. There was only one that did not lather but I think it was lack of water more than a problem with the Soniclear.

Since I am always honest with y'all I have to say I didn't like it all on my body. It was very odd to me and felt strange. So I tried it twice and my soap didn't lather and I didn't feel clean. So I have only used it on my face. That doesn't mean you won't like it and I am perfectly happy with just using the system for my face.

Soniclear offers a Two Year Warranty means years of trouble free enjoyment. Most products do not come with more than a one year warranty so that means Michael Todd stands by the quality of their products.
