Being a busy young mom always on the go, I don't always have time to charge my phone, but letting it die isn't an option. The lifeguard mini 1 portable charger is a huge help.

It comes all charged, with a usb cable to connect it! 
It's great for on the go charging, it's great for all different brands and devices.
It's not a huge bulky charger like some others that are the size of your cell phone. 
I love that it comes in different colors!

A major thing that I really liked about this charger was the fact that not only does it charge quickly, but that it doesn't over heat. I had another 'big name brand' portable charger and it over heated so quickly only having it plugged into my phone for about 10 mins, I really thought the charger was going to catch fire it was so hot it could burn someone.
This charge did not do that! It did get warm because of the power it has running through it but this is a cool warm compared to the other and you can bet the other went in the trash. This is definitely one I would recommend to friends for the great price!

Running Armband for Samsung Galaxy {Review}

When it comes to fitness, music is a total must for me and I always want a safe place to keep my phone while exercising, and keeping my phone sweat free. This armband is the perfect daily accessory for my phone. It does fit a variety of Samsung Galaxy Phones, because I got it when I had the S3 and I now have the alpha, with a case it's definitely a tighter especially with a case on it but it's still safe and easily accessible.

It's definitely weird using it at first this way but it's great that it's covered and still can answer calls, change the music, It does have the reflective rim around it so whether you're running with low light, you are still visible. It even has a place to hold a key so you don't have to lug everything with you.

The thing I was alittle confused about was the A & B slots. I know it's for the band because people have different sized arms, I unfortunately still have larger arms due to still in being in the process of loosing weight so when I tighten this is it really does squish my arms which is never fun, especially when your working out and your arm's getting hot. So I definitely wish there was alittle more flexibilty with the band or the length because it doesn't go up quite as high as I'd like it to be.

It's definitely a great purchase for $7.99 !
They come in black or pink!

Hango Lunch Bags {Review}

While being on the kick off with my weight loss, I'm always on the look out for a big enough lunch bag(s) to store my stuff in especially while I'm at work as I can't leave to just grab a snack and if I have healthier options with me, I'm less likely to snack on work junk.
So when Hango let me review their small & large lunch bag set, I was game to put them to the test.

The lunch bags are black with a brown handle, with a nice clean design. They definitely kept my snacks cold while I was at work. The handles make them easy to carry. Double zipper makes it easy to close on both sides, middle etc.

These bags would be great for on the go, even if you were going somewhere that you needed drinks, it fits 6 cans nicely in the large bag.

Yes I'm hiding the label since it was all I had in the house at the time but wanted to show the capacity of the these bags.
Even the small bag is good for a quick snack on the go, for the kids, even yourself. 
They are definitely handy.

Although compared to what I take for my dinner for work, including my giant thing of water, these bags are on the smaller side. If you don't take as much as I do - these would be perfect for you, or even the kids to take their school lunches.

However, I'm one to try to improvise, I did find a great use for the larger lunch bag!!
Be prepared to gasp - yes, that's right I used it as a makeup bag!

I know you might think that I'm crazy in this case, but it's so hard to find a large makeup bag without it being a suitcase and costing an absurd amount of money! So in my pinch of needing some place to put my makeup, this bag worked!! So in this case it definitely holds alot!

No matter what you decided to use these bags for, they are a great choice and have a lifetime warranty!

Luxury Microfiber Queen Sheet Set {Review}

Since we spend so much time in bed, I'm always looking for great sheets that are comfortable, soft and naturally a great fit.

A great fit you might ask? Yes, because I have a huge mattress and I need deep pocketed sheets which is actually harder to find than you might think. So I was all for reviewing these sheets to see just how deep the pockets really were.

These sheets are from Yorkshire Mayfair. The color is a really pretty sage green, they also have other colors that you can find on their amazon listing which I'll share Here. The price of 29.95 for queen OR king is fairly inexpensive! That is awesome!!

In the set, you get your typical 2 pillowcases but something special about the pillowcases - they have an extension inside to keep your pillow in where sometimes they just pop out. You get your top sheet, and bottom fitted sheet. As I've said the bottom did actually end up being deep enough for my mattress which was a huge thing for me.

They definitely were a little looser than I wanted after washing and drying though and did tend to slide, where they are microfiber they tend to feel kind of silky on your skin. I have dry hands working in health care so I was always trying to be careful touching it as I felt like it would catch even though it didn't.

It definitely looks great all together. They are soft and cool to sleep on. They are a great purchase if you aren't as picky as I am in the above stated, otherwise you're golden. I would definitely consider purchasing from them in the future!

Retinol Moisturizer {Review}

As a girl who has started wearing more makeup, my face has badly needed a moisturizer, so I was very excited to jump on the chance of trying Body Merry's Retinol Moisturizer.

It leaves my face feeling really soft, and it doesn't dry it out like some products do especially since I have really dry skin to begin with. It hydrates my skin after wearing makeup all day, the green tea in it gives a great cooling effect, the hyaluronic acid tones my skin up. 

Using this in the morning before applying makeup and using it before bed has definitely made my face very happy. It works well with any skin type. As for the smell, I like it. It's very light but you can smell the shea butter which isn't an issue for me since I particularly enjoy the smell.

Definitely check it out and purchase your own on amazon ~ Retinol

Teether Necklace & Bracelet {Review}

When your child is teething it can be a bit frustrating as they want to put EVERYTHING in their mouth, and let's face it - that isn't always a good thing considering the things they choose to put in their mouth.

I was excited to get a chance to review this silicone teether necklace and bracelet set from Beabies that comes all wrapped up in a see through gauze bag and just makes you that much more excited when you open it.

At first when I handed my daughter the necklace she was a little skeptical that mommy was actually handing her mommy's necklace to chew on. I'd raise my eyebrows too. It's nice and sturdy, with the clasp, each bead is knotted between the beads so you don't have to worry about pulling and it snapping.

I did run my under some warm soapy water before I let her go to town on it once she realized I wasn't kidding with it. When I went to put the bracelet on - it was a tiny bit small for my wrist, once I warmed it up under the water it did expand so don't be totally disalarmed. 

I love that they have them in multiple colors to go with your outfit, personality, child, favorite color or any where in between!

I feel totally safe allowing her to chomp away on this necklace, As it's BPA free, FDA approved! It's also food grade silicone so it's easily washable. I have two dogs so naturally there is hair every where and it does cling to this necklace so I always wash before she puts it in her mouth to rinse it off. She loves wearing it, makes her feel like a big kid but it also goes great on mommy too!

Definitely check them out and make sure you purchase one. It really is a must have for any teething child from infancy to toddlers.
