Makeup Wars: KEUNE So Pure (and so awesome)

KEUNE's So Pure products should simply be called "bottle of awesome." I had never tried this line prior to being sent them a few months ago, and I was skeptical that anything could combat my scalp issue at the time. All I can say is, scalp dryness and flaking? Read more

Pardon the interruption!

Holy smokes! So my site was down for 4 days! Eep! Please forgive the lack of images and sidebar messiness while I reconfigure everything. We had hosting issues and they basically messed up the whole blog to the degree that we had to change hosting services–and now everything isn’t uploaded right, so we’ll be fixing that throughout Sunday.

Have patience and I’m glad to be back! Thank you Leslie at Catapult Web Development! xo

Review: ME! bath Bath Ice Cream

My kids absolutely love when they get included in on reviewing bath products and this time it was Brody’s turn to try out a bath time treat. What better treat than ME! bath Bath Ice Cream in Strawberry Kiwi.

He wasn’t sure what to think at first when I put in the pink round scoop of Bath Ice Cream into his bath tub. The scoop immediately began to fizz and bubble in his tub and the delicious fragrance of fresh strawberries with the sweet and tarte scent of Kiwi dispersed throughout the room. The strawberry scent reminds me of strawberry shortcake with that delicious sponge cake and a dollop of cool whip–sweet, creamy and delicious!

He giggled as his tub water turned pink like cotton candy and he splashed like a little fish in water. ME! bath Bath Ice Cream comes large or mini size with 1 scoop for large and 6 delectable scoops for mini that will moisturize even those with the smallest skin with its essential oils and minerals. There are 35 flavors to choose from so whether you purchase it for your kid or a kid at heart, it’ll be sure to make bath time a great substitute for dessert! www.mebath.com
