Pin It!
As parents, aside from letting the kiddos run free outside, we look for ways that they can entertain themselves. If you are looking for a way for the kids to entertain themselves, I have something that is perfect for you! Not only do they get to have fun- they can learn while doing it too! I have recently had the chance to participate in a National Geographic Kids Books Summer Boredom Buster Review! Check out some of the awesome titles that my daughter, Lydia received for review!
National Geographic Kids Sticker Activity Books bring National Geographic Kids signature content to a sticker and activity book format and feature mazes, spelling and pattern games and drawing activities.  The Amazing Pets Sticker Activity Book features animals that kids can't get enough of like dogs, cats, lizards, hamsters, bunnies, and birds, to name a few, while the Super Space Sticker Activity Book is  chock-full of stars, planets, comets, aliens and everything out of this world.   
These books are really neat! They teach her a ton to! Wether you've been transported back in time to the land of dinosaurs or the Middle Ages, captured by pirates, or run your very own pet resort,  the National Geographic Kids Funny Fill-In series lets kids tell -- and star in -- their very own story. Combining National Geographic Kids' photography and illustrations in colorful, laugh-out-loud pages, these engaging, entertaining and educational books challenges kids to think about words in creative ways, and write their own wild and wacky stories.

Prize Candle- Soy Candles With a Prize Inside! {#Review} {#TMMPrizeCandle}

Pin It!
I love things that make our apartment smell good! Recently, I had the chance to work with Prize Candle on a review! I was stoked because who doesn't love a soy candle? Prize Candles are beautifully packaged, all natural soy wax candle in fragrances that will enhance your environment with the added bonus of a prize in every candle! Prize Candles are 9 oz and they come in an adorable box!
Each candle has a prize valued from $10-$5,000 inside of it. I received a candle that smells amazing. I have never heard of a Adriatic Fig Scented Candle!
The first thing that I noticed was that my candle was filled to the top. Unlike competing brands, they give you your money's worth!
 My candle only burned for two hours before my prize was revealed. I took tweezers and pulled it right on out! My prize was in a bag- inside of this plastic casing.
I did notice that due to the wax being so hot, the plastic did melt a hole in it. There was not any wax on my ring though!
And here is our beautiful prize! There are codes noted on the labels of each prize. You can take that code and enter it online on the Prize Candle appraisal page. Mine is only $10, but that is okay because it is still so pretty! My daughter Lydia is wearing it in this picture. The ring was super small, but as soon as I seen that it was perfect for her- I gave it to her right away! All of their candles are $24.99 and they are shipped for only $5.99 and only charge an additional $1 per candle! See their website for other shipping info. 

I know that their price may seem a bit steep for some, but let me tell you- it is worth it! Soy candles are the best candles that you can get. Not only do they NOT soot, they smell AMAZING- AND you get the prize with it! It is a 2 for 1 deal. The next candle that I want to get from them next is Pumpkin Spice! *Hint Hint HUSBAND* Be sure to visit their website via one of the links in this post for more info and other candles available! You can also visit them on their social media below! Thanks for reading!

Fashionable and affordable glasses with Firmoo! {#Review}

Pin It!
I have been searching for a pair of glasses that I can wear at night. A pair that I wouldn't mind falling asleep in. Recently Firmoo approached me and asked me if I would like to review a pair. It was perfect timing. If you haven't heard of Firmoo, Firmoo.com is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. Years of expertise in optical industry enable Firmoo.com to offer varieties of prescription eyewear to the consuming public in high quality yet at extremely affordable prices.
Their glasses are afforable and that is one thing I love about them. Ordering glasses from them is easy. You do need your perscription so that you can get the correct lenses and size you need. When you make an account, you can add your photo so that you can vitrually "try on" glasses. Find the pair that you want and you add in your cart. You can add in your info such as PD, your Axis, what type of lenses you want and more. They offer add ons as well. I chose these neat glasses.
I had never seen plastic glasses that looked like wood glasses, and wood glasses with the skulls on them are just too neat! These are unisex glasses that are rectangular. They have  strong nose bridges and are very comfortable. They are available in two colors too!

 These glasses are $39 with 1.50 single vision lenses and no add ons. However, I was upgraded to 1.57 index lenses with anti-radiation & UV coatings as apart of my review! They also came with a case, screwdriver and lenses cleaning cloth. With those add ons and shipping, it would have came to $56.85 plus shipping which would have been a total of $63.80. If you want the chance to score free glasses you can do so by using the code FREEFIRMOO. You will just have to pay shipping and for the frames to be upgraded if you choose so. Check out Firmoo via one of the links in this post! There are glasses for everyone! Visit Firmoo on their social media below too!
