MapleHolistics - Assuage Foot Scrub

I've mentioned before my rough, dry, cracked feet so I'm sure it's not surprise that I'm always looking for ways to make them smoother. When I was able to try Assuage from MapleHolistics I was very excited. 

It's different from other foot scrubs I've used because it's gentle exofoliating. There are not a ton of big exfoliation beads, just small ones. The scrub smells light and pleasant. I can smell the peppermint and tea tree but together they make a unique scent. 

I guess it's softer than most scrubs because it has an array of oils in it. It's a thin consistency but feels great when I use it on my feet. I feel it cleaning but it's not a harsh scrub at all.  I don't think this would cure highly calloused feet but I do think it will prevent my callouses and cracks from coming back. 

It's so gentle I use it often, sometimes two or three times a week. I just take a small amount and rub it into my foot concentrating on my heels.

Car Garbage Bag by DRIVE


I was so excited to review this garbage bag. Before my "garbage bag" was a plastic bag tied to a piece in my vehicle. Not horrible but it gets in the way. Sometimes if I have passengers that don't normally ride with me I let them move it before the can get in. So this is a big step up! 

Drive's garbage bag is a very nice material and is easy to attach to the seat. It's has an adjustable strap and can be put on any seat with a headrest or pretty much any other place in the car. I love that it's waterproof so those bottles that open and leak will not drip all over my car.

The inside of the bag is big and the mouth is wide so it's easy to throw trash in it and there is no excuse for missing. That means no more trash all over the vehicle. My children are famous for tossing tissues or wrappers everywhere.
The package included a roll of trash bags and I was really happy to see that. As you can see there is a pocket on the side that holds the trash bags neatly and readily available.

The entire bag is easy to clean and will not hold odors or moisturizer. It only takes a wet cloth or wipe to clean it as good as new.  Being black will make it match with most interiors. There is also an option to have the accent strap pink or green.

I love that it keeps my car clean and keep the trash out of the way.  It's a great product and is not limited to use in the car. It can be used in the boat or camper just to name a few other options.

Now the bag doesn't stand up on it's own. It's not flimsy but it's not stiff. That does not bother me but I did want to mention it.

I think that decor makes a room and I'm sure most of you agree. I don't have many empty walls right now but I will SOON!!! So when I was able to work with again I was super excited.  Once again I enjoyed searching the massive selection of art to find my favorite.

That really was no simple task because I don't' have a style, I like what I like and I know it when I see it.
It's not like I wanted the abstract collection or the scenic so I looked through everything. There is some amazing choices but I narrowed it down to two. I choose Willow Park Lake by T.C. Chiu. He has a huge visually stunning collection of art. I would hang his work all over my house!

As with all art on there is a lot of options when it comes to frames, mats, and top glass so there is a lot of different looks for that one painting. I chose a small mat background and museum glass, which is thicker and more protection that other glass options. You can see the frame I picked.  I love the frame it is so classy and eloquent looking. The coloring will match with any room because it neutral.  The finished picture is lightweight but extremely well made. It has a typical backing and the clips are on the back ready to hang on the back.

It is delivered very fast and it is shipped well protected so it will arrive in tacked with no dents, dings, or damage.

My other choice!  It is a picture of Florida but it looks a lot like Louisiana as well so it looked like home.

this post contains affiliate links 

I was so excited to team up with fabfitfun to review the fall box for y'all. There are so many subscription boxes out there it's hard to know which ones are good for you. So what's different about fff
Well let's see 
  • There are no sample sizes in this box. Only full size products. 
  • It's not just a beauty box so you get a variety of products: 
  • a mix of beauty, fashion, fitness, wellness and home products that help you feel good from the inside out
  • if you join the community you'll get effective tips and tricks to kick start your happy and get more out of life.
  • it's not delivered monthly so there is not a many charges. 
All boxes are the same with color variations. Oh and YOU chose the color when options are available.  
In each Season's fabfitfun box there is always $200.00 + in products but you only pay $49.99

So I got the Fall Box 

As you can see lots of amazing goodies! There and it's not just makeup! Not that I could ever have too much makeup?!

As with all subscription boxes it's exciting to discover products you wouldn't normally get a chance to try. That was definitely the case with everything in my box.

  1. Passport to Beauty's Gold Radiance Luxury Facial Mask with Collagen and Rose Oil ~~ Help stimulate circulation and soothe skin.  ARV - $65.00   Umm I would never be able to pay $65.00 for a mask. There are so many other things I could buy. So that's the beauty of subscription boxes. Oh did you notice this one thing paid for the box? 
  2. Fabfitfun x Tappan Collection Umbrella ~  This is one of the products that a choice of colors was given ~~ I got a a bright pink. It's super cute and says "Rain Rain Go Away" It's a very nice size and will keep me dry on those nasty rainy days. The umbrella was made specifically for this FFF box! How cool is that. You'll have something that only fellow fabfitfun fans have! ARV - $32.00 

  3. Flawless Skin Fluid from Dr. Schwab  ~~ a lightweight moisturizer that smooths and visually corrects uneven skin tones. - ARV $39.00
  4. I thought this was so awesome! The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse ~~  an adorable purple tasseled key chain that brings awareness to Domestic Abuse.  I personally know a few women that were victims. So let's show our support and help fight against domestic abuse. Women deserve to be safe in their own home  ~~ ARV PRICELESS

September's Starlooks, Looksbook

This is my second Starlooks Lookbook and so excited. The "look" or theme is Revival and the colors are STUNNING!! I can't wait to start playing and creating looks. 

If you don't know what LooksBook is ~~  It's a monthly subscription in a book type package. These looks are a themed differently and delivered to your door every month. 

The book is small box that holds the three pieces of makeup in place so it's very portable. It would be easy to toss in my purse or gym bag. I have I opened the book and there is a lipstick, eye shadow duo, and mascara.  They are deluxe samples in other words. the perfect sizes. 

The top of the book has pictures with tips on how to complete the perfect look with those products. Since they are connected to the box I don't have to worry about them falling off and getting misplaced. 

Like I mentioned the theme is Revival so I had no idea what to expect from the colors.  

So what's in my Looksbook?

Eyeshadow duo in Agave:
I fell in love with the eye shadow duo the minute i opened the box. Then when when I saw the picture of it applied, I loved it even more. They are both beautiful matte colors 

Tube of Lipstick in Rawr:
Is a really beautiful mauve, magenta shade.  This is a color i would have picked out myself. It is a little bright but it's a perfect fall color. I couldn't wait to wear it!

The mascara in Flora:
This one totally threw me off. It's a teal color and I was not expecting that. It's is much prettier than I was expecting and once I saw the picture in the tips I couldn't wait to use it.

This month's Lookbook exceeded my expectations!! So I'll say it again of all the subscription boxes this is one of my favorites.
It's not just that the products are awesome but I like the themed concept as well.  I'm getting a new different look to try every month. So I'm getting introduced to colors new exciting colors that I may never have tried.

The little box/book is so compact I can easily throw two or three in my suitcase/camper and have three possibly more different looks without taking up too much space.

If you want subscribe to LookBook  You can sign up here 

If this isn't something your interested in remember, Starlooks has
The Legacy Starbox  ~~   three, pro quality, starlooks cosmetics delivered to your door monthly for only $15.00
The Custom Box ~~  You have some control you choose three out of six deluxe size beauty products which is delivered to your door for only $12.00 per month.

Have you heard of AdoreMe? If not you should check them out. I wear a 38 DD so  I've never been able to find bras that fit unless I went to Victoria's Secret and those well, cost a small fortune. So when i discovered Adore Me I figured it would be another site for small girls but I was so wrong!
Sets run between $39.99 and $49.99 with sizes in some  sets up to a FFF. That price is less that a bra at VS and you get both the bra and underwear.

If that's not enough they have sleepwear from XS to 6X. Oh and look at the stunning models! They are real size women not stick figures ~~ gotta hand it to AdoreMe for that!


I have those PJs is a two different colors and they are amazing. So soft and comfortable that I will probably by this color as well. My husband loves them too because they are just enough sexy without being too revealing.  And that hot little nurse number is probably my next buy!

They also have lots of adorable swimwear so go check them out!

 If you join the VIP Club you get free gifts with purchases,  sales like /Bye one get one Free, and a FREE set after you buy five.
