Y’OUR Personalized Skin Care Review

Skincare has become more important to my beauty routine as the years go by. Now that I am wiser, and know there is more to keeping the skin I have been blessed with healthy than moisturizing, I want to develop a routine that works for me. For a while, that was not so easy. With so many products, regimens, promises and advertising aimed at my age group, I honestly had no idea where to begin.

Then I heard about Y’our and I started developing a routine that works for my skin and life magically lost a lot of guesswork. Instead of shelling out big bucks to get lackluster results, I started by taking a quiz about my skin and found a 4 part regime that is perfect for my lifestyle and unique skin.

The Y’our approach factors in environmental, age, lifestyle and stress in your daily life and pairs natural and effective products to give you the best results. Each Y’our skincare set includes a cleanser, a day cream, a night cream and a serum selected with you in mind. 

Offering a unique and fabulous approach to skincare that beats the one product fits most packaging that is all too common in the market for healthy skin. This 4 product set has a value of $195 and provides priceless results. 

Being a busy mom of three boys I rarely have time to spend in the bathroom but I wanted to make time to use Yo

Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology TOP Vacuum On The Market

I have gone through many vacuums over the years, and one brand I love is Shark! I find their vacuums last and the suction and cleaning quality can’t be beaten! Today I am excited to share the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology, one of the top vacuums on the market right now.

Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology

I received this vacuum awhile back, and I have been putting it to the test. I am so impressed with how well this vacuum works, it really picks up all the dust and debris that has embedded into my carpet. It offers a DuoClean Technology, which means it has 2 powerful brushrolls spinning in unison, to pull in small and large particles from the floor or carpet! It really has a wonderful suction power that does an exceptional job of cleaning the floors!

The LED light works great for seeing any food items you have on the floor that need to be vacuumed up. I was shocked at how well it lit up our floors, so you could really see what you are cleaning!

Shark Rocket Is Self-Propelling Vacuum With Ease 

Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology

This is a very lightweight vacuum which makes it easy to move room to room and clean, and won’t pull on your back when you vacuum! The one thing I find that really sets this vacuum apart is it can clean floor-to-ceilings! This Shark vacuum can clean your couch, ceiling fans, air vents, hard wood or linoleum flooring, carpet, you name it, this vacuum will clean it! Plus it is self-propelling, so as soon as you turn it on, you feel it gently pulling at the flooring, which makes vacuuming so much easier.

We have a mix of flooring in our home, and I love being able to go from vacuum our carpet to our linoleum floors in the kitchen and hallway. It saves me from having to get a broom and dustpan out, and as a busy mom, I will take any short cut I can get!

Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology Has Amazing Suction Power

I am able to clean under my kitchen appliances, in the crooks of our couch and chairs, and so much more. We couldn’t be more impressed with this vacuum! I love that the filters are washable, so when you go to clean, you can reuse them for a lifetime!  Shark really put a lot of time and thought into this vacuum. Everything is easy, from dumping the collection bin, cleaning the filters, cleaning the rollers, and the list goes on!


If you are interested in a Shark, check out their site and order one today! I highly recommend Shark, they are a top leading brand, with vacuums you can truly trust!

Back to School with Slammers Snacks for Kids

With 3 on the go, growing boys, snacks are a frequent part of our lives. Keeping the boys fueled for their action packed days of learning, playing and practicing is a challenge sometimes. We don’t always have time to prepare from scratch treats and convenience is important when time is of the essence.

We recently got to try out something new and super yummy, that is delicious and nutritious. Slammers snacks are more than just an applesauce pouch. They are portable, packable superfoods for growing bodies!

Offering my boys Slammers Snacks in their lunches and afterschool is a great way to give them a serving of fruits, veggies and vitamins in one easy to easy and totally enjoyable package. There are several flavors available and my boys loved them all.

I loved them too because I could give them a treat when we are the busiest without turning to junk food. I had no mom guilt over this option, and the boys had no complaints about the snack option either.

Slammers Snacks are available in flavors like Epic, which is mango, carrot, orange and greek yogurt. Awesome flavor is a berry, banana, beet and acai blend that smells amazing. Chill’n has yumberry, yogurt, butternut squash, blueberries and bananas. As you can tell, Slammers Snacks are packed with good stuff for growing bodies, or anyone looking for healthier on the go options.

These are perfect for a lunch box, a quick pick me up in the car after school, or as an addition to breakfast. These are so nutritious and delicious kids or adults would welcome  a Slammers Snack any time or place.

Slammers Snacks are one of our favorite ways to eat better on the go. Do you think your family would like Slammers Snacks as an addition to their routines?

Back to School with LAMO Footwear

School is almost here and I am ready to update my look for the season! As a very busy mom of three active boys, I am used to being on my toes. So, when I think about updating my wardrobe, I am looking for function, fashion and comfort. Shoes are one of the first things I look for when I shop for a seasonal wardrobe.

This year I found the perfect shoe for back to school. No matter where life takes us, to school, to the beach, the mall, a ball game or on a picnic, the Piper in Peach from Lamo Footwear will carry me there and keep me comfortable. I love that these are completely cute and will pair perfectly with so many of my outfits!

The Piper in Peach is a slip on sneaker. It is easy to get on or off, and these are so comfortable to wear. They offer the ideal amount of support and are great for walking, or even chasing after boys. The shoes are washable as an added bonus to keep them looking great all year long. Knowing my shoes can be washed when needed is important to me because life with  boys can get adventurous!

Retailing at under $33 this is a great shoe to add to your collection for summer.  If peach isn’t your favorite color, you can browse the selection of Piper styles, there are 8 fantastic colors to choose from. I know I will be adding a few more colors before the season gets underway.

If you are looking for an affordable yet stylish pair of sneakers for school or just to wear, I would highly recommend Lamo’s Piper. I have been totally impressed with the fit, the look and the comfort of this pair of shoes and I know you will be too!

With the holidays comes some stress. From staying on budget to accomplishing everything on your to-do list, it is easy to get overwhelmed and maybe a little tense. When given the opportunity to review a few Napio massagers, I knew this was perfect timing and just what I needed to relax a little and keep the holidays super jolly!

This is a super relaxing way to relieve tension in your neck and shoulder area. Retailing at under $60 this is truly a gift that will keep on giving! The Christmas Shoulder Massager wraps around your shoulders to massage away aches, pains, and stiffness. I love that it gives a deep massage while being remarkably quiet and that it is made with leather. It heats up and mimics an amazing, relaxing hug.

The Naipo Massager is one of my favorite gift ideas for the special guys in my life. It wraps them in a warm hug as it heats between 96 and 104 degrees while offering a deep massage to melt his pains, aches, tensions, and stiff shoulders. Made with PU leather, this is a handsome massager that will be well received by any guy on your shopping list. Retailing at under $60 this is a must have relaxation tool in my opinion.

I was very pleased with both of the Napio shoulder massagers and loved how easy they were to use and how great the results of the shiatsu massage were. I would highly recommend this brand for holiday shopping and beyond.
