Peeps® - They Make Easter Fun!

Easter is this Sunday, March 31st, are you ready? I don't think you are quite ready until you add some Peeps® to your Easter Sunday! Whether you love to eat them, decorate with them, use them in a recipe or just play with them Peeps® has become synonymous with Easter. This year was Peeps® 60th Anniversary, that's a lot of Peeps®!! I was sent a lot of Peeps® to try and when I mean a lot, I really mean a lot!!!

Today I saw the new PEEPS® Easter commercial that features two brothers sharing tons of fun recipes, crafts, and other quirky ways to use PEEPS®. It inspired me to create PEEPS Easter Wreath with my kids. For more PEEPS® possibilities, watch the extended version of the video. It features pop-ups that take you to all 26 different PEEPS® ideas. Click on what interests you, and find an easy way to "Express Your Peepsonality™."

I'll be posting a photo of our Peeps® Easter Wreath in a day or two, since it's Spring Break it's the perfect time to use Peeps® in many different ways! 

Have you used Peeps® in a recipe or craft? Do you want to? Please share your Peeps® comments below!

Luxury Lane - Leather Motorcycle Jackets for Men

Growing up I had a next door neighbor that rode a Harley, that bike was loud and sounded mean. If one Harley wasn't enough he would have his buddies come over, it could get really loud! As I grew older I started to notice all his biker buddies and even my neighbor wore leather. They wore these great leather jackets that looked worn but comfortable. It was then that my love of leather began, not because of how they looked in it but the texture and smell. I noticed how some men just looked better in a leather jacket, especially while riding his motorcycle. 
It wasn't until I was almost an adult that I learned that leather actually protects the biker not just from a fall but from all the elements. Since my anniversary will be here before I know it, I have decided that a leather jacket just might be a great gift for my husband. Looking for leather motorcycle jackets for men is made even easier by visiting Luxury Lane. They carry such a variety you are sure to find a leather motorcycle jacket for any man! 
Whether you are looking for a leather motorcycle jacket for your husband, son or father you will be impressed with the different styles that Luxury Lane has to offer. Go ahead check them out and be prepared to fall in love!

Green Choice - The Best Carpet Cleaning NYC Company

When I was a teenager I would be teased that I was a tree-hugger. I didn't care because I cared about the environment and wanted to do my part and show my friends that recycling and reusing was so important. Now as a parent I am even more concerned with the environment. Having children has made me think of the cleaning chemicals that we use, what dangers they pose and what alternatives there are.

I am by no means an all green person, as much as I would like to be there are some things that I have a hard time giving up. But if there is one thing I have learned about living even some what green, it's better to do a little, than nothing at all. I have been buying green cleaners for a while now and while looking for a green carpet cleaner, I came across a great website for carpet cleaning. Now I may not live in New York or even close to it, but I can share with you all and let you know that they are the best in NYC. The company Green Choice will make sure your carpets, rugs, mattresses, leather, and upholstery are not just clean but cleaned thoroughly and correctly the first time.
They are also able to clean air ducts, take care of water damage and repair your rug. You can call today to get a free estimate and they may be able to offer you services the same day! You can't go wrong with not only getting your carpet cleaned and also helping keep our environment clean as well! Call Green Choice today!

My daughters are really into science and building things. I have posted before their other building creations so when I was given the opportunity to review a SmartLab Toys I was thrilled. I was given a few choices and it was a no-brainer for me to pick the Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab
My girls have had so much fun creating ways for the marble to reach the bottom, and I have loved watching them work together. You can see a quick clip of them here. I have to be honest our entire family has played with the Contraption Lab. It is so much fun to watch the marble go through all the parts and reach the end. This is truly a great toy and their website is full of other great products! I recommend joining the SmartLab Toys newsletter to keep informed of new products and specials. SmartLab Toys has been incredibly generous they are not only allowing me to giveaway a Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab but they are also giving all my readers a great discount!

cureLauncher - Start Healing!

With many families being affected by cancer in one way or another it has never been as important as it is now to look for the right cure for all types of diseases, including cancers. Personally I have lost a few family members to cancer, including my own father, and every time I think of him I wonder if there would have been more cutting edge medicines would he have survived. That is why the website cureLauncher is not only a great place to look for those cutting edge medicines through clinical trials but this is a website that can help save lives.

Many people do not know that the most cutting edge medicines have been discovered through clinical trials. I realize that clinical trials take time away from your day but going into paid clinical trials makes it a little easier by giving you some money for your time. Finding the right clinical trial is made easier through cureLauncher, they help connect patients with the clinical trials in their area. 

If you or someone you know is suffering from a life threatening disease it is so important for you or for them to seek out a clinical trial to save yours or their life. I know for myself and my family I will make it a point to look for clinical trials for anyone I know suffering from a disease, I want to do anything I can to help them find that cure that will save their life. Make sure to tell your family members about cureLauncher it just might save their life!

Pierro's Formal Wear for Your Tuxedo Needs!

Now that Spring time is here that means there will be many proms, weddings, and other formal events. For many teenage guys and men finding the right formal wear can be somewhat frustrating. You want to find the right look for yourself and that is why trying on different formal wear is important. You don’t want to settle for the first suit you try on and definitely don’t get something just because you want the search to be over with.

If there is one suit that fits for almost every occasion it’s a tuxedo. Don’t think every place carries the same type of tuxedo though, because there are different fabrics used that can make one look much better than another. Check out a tuxedo rental Spartanburg SC for all your formal event needs. Look through their website and see what they have to offer, you will be impressed!

If you take a few minutes to look their tuxedos aren't what most think of when thinking a tuxedo. Not all tuxedos have to be just plain old black and white. They come in a variety of colors with different accessories to bring your formal look all together. If you want to show up to your event looking polished and maybe even stand out a little then Pierro's Formal Wear is the place to go.

Build-A-Bear Workshop Flower Fun Bunny Review

With Easter coming up I find myself looking for unique items to give my daughters. I decided this year I would go for quality instead of quantity. While thinking of Easter I started to think of Build-A-Bear Workshop® and all the great stuffed animals you can make there. Right now Build-A-Bear Workshop® has two great Spring time friends, Flower Fun Bunny and Chirpy Chick. I was sent the Flower Fun Bunny, and she is too cute!
The Flower Fun Bunny is sure to make any day better with her soft fur. Her colorful flowers remind me of Spring every time I look at her. She is the perfect Easter or Spring time gift for all ages! Since I have 3 daughters and it was too hard to give Flower Fun Bunny to just one, I decided Flower Fun Bunny is mine, but I was still willing to share. You can get Flower Fun Bunny, Chirpy Chick or any other great Build-A-Bear Workshop® animals by ordering on their website. You can also follow Build-A-Bear Workshop® on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, iPhone App, Build-A-Bear Blog and on Instagram by using the keyword buildabear.
For a limited time when you purchase $20 or more worth of products you will receive a FREE Egg Decorating Kit.

Luminess Air Review

My obsession with make-up goes as far back as my childhood. I would let my neighbor, who eventually I would call my sister, put all sorts of makeup on me. I had perfected the process of putting mascara on or letting someone else put it on by around 8 or 9. Later I would go to a "modeling school" and learn how to apply makeup correctly. I really do love all that girly stuff. So when I was able to review Luminess Air I was so incredibly happy, I could not wait for my system to arrive!
If you are not familiar Luminess Air is an airbrush makeup system. I was sent their Everyday Beauty System. With the Luminess Air you have to try different shades of makeup to find the correct color and then make sure you apply the makeup as directed. I read the instructions, watched the videos, found my color and gave it a shot. Now I have to tell you I take horrible photos, I really do not like pictures of myself but for the sake of this review I am showing you my face!
So I must say I was too embarrassed to put my before photo up, because the Luminess Air Everyday Beauty System worked so well that I just wanted to show my after photo. The makeup covered my flaws, the dark spots and gave me an even tone. It was so easy and lightweight, you hardly notice you are wearing makeup. I definitely give this system 5 stars! It is perfect!!! Thank you Luminess Air, I now can go out without feeling so insecure.

You can follow Luminess Air on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest and the Luminess Air Blog.
