Precision tips with Q-tips® Precision Tips

I have found a love in Q-tips® Precision Tips.
They are quite possibly perfect accessory for anyone who wears make up or likes to
paint their nails.
Here are a few tips for using Q-tips® Precision Tips in your life
  • After applying eye liner, the tips are amazing for helping you make sure your lines are perfect, or for smudging them up depending on the look you want to achieve.
  • When applying lipstick, apply the lipstick to the precision tip first, them apply to your lips. It will help ensure that your lip color is perfectly filled in.
  • After painting a base coat, you can use Q-tips® Precision Tips for creating cool designs in a secondary color.
  • If you ever have issues with the crappy applicators that come with eye shadow? Now you can use Q-tips® Precision Tips to get more precise lines, color, and designs for eye popping eye make up.
  • You can use Q-tips® Precision Tips to help create the perfect French manicure on your fingers and toes by using the precision tips to keep your lines perfect and keep the polish from bleeding.
  • Q-tips® Precision Tips make it easy (and inexpensive) to change up your eye liner colors. All you have to do is pick your desired eye shadow color, dip the tip of the Q-tips® Precision Tips into water, rub sideways onto the shadow (make sure it's sideways to keep the precision tip), then use the tip to draw on your new eye liner color!

Those are all of the Q-tips® Precision Tips that I have for now, but will add more as I discover new ones!

Dr. Scholl's for Her, Ball of Foot: a review

Going to a wedding? 
Getting married? 
Part of a wedding party? 
Or just love to wear high heels?
Dr. Scholl's For Her, Ball of Foot is for you!

What can I say about Dr. Scholl's for Her, Ball of Foot? 
What words could possibly explain how I feel about having them in my shoes?
Let see, they are amazing, wonderful, comfortable, incredible, heaven sent... 
The list could go on.

I have these great shoes that I bought years ago, but never wear them because they have always been super uncomfortable (despite being expensive). 
I've tried other high heel inserts, but to no avail. 
None of them made my shoes comfortable enough to wear for more than a few minutes.

Getting the Ball of Foot for her was exciting since I had not tried these yet. 
Low and behold, they are amazing! 
They helped keep my foot from sliding around, the ripples helped massage the balls of my feet when I walked, and made my slightly big shoes suddenly fit like a glove!

I was able to walk around for close to an hour around my house, playing games with my son and cooking dinner before taking them off to put him to bed.

My feet have never felt better in high heels than before I used the Ball of Feet.

So why should you buy Dr. Scholl's for Her, Ball of Foot insert?
These will help you to dance the night away with all of your friends, stand on your feet for long periods of time, or just  wear your favorite heels for hours without the pain usually caused by high heels.

Ivory 2-in-1 Hair and Body Wash: a review

Thanks to Influenster, I was chosen to try out a great new product that not only could be used on every member of my family, but would reduce the amount of products we use in the shower, reduce the amount of waste we had, and make our foot print a little smaller.

What was the great new product you may ask? Well, Ivory 2-in-1 Hair and Body Wash, of course! 

What is so great about Ivory 2-in-1 Hair and Body Wash?
Well, let me tell you. First, because it both cleanses your hair & skin, the amount of products that you need in the shower is decreased. What this means for you is less clutter, less decision making, less waste in the dump and a cleaner world. It's true that it may not reduce waste by a lot, but it is definitely a start to improving our world. 

Another great aspect?
 It is gentle on all skin types (we use it on my 19 month old with out any issues), leaves tour skin super soft after without masty residue, and the smell is subtle and gender neutral, so you can use it on every member of your family (see what I mean about reducing that waste?).

You know what else?
It works great as a substitute for shave gel or shaving cream as well! I haven't had to buy shaving cream for shaving my legs since I received Ivorys 2-in1! (I know, again with that reducing waste & clutter).

Ok, ok. I know what you're thinking. 
This product is too good to be true. 
What about the price? 
Obviously something that handles more should cost more, right?
Well, let me tell you, priced at just $3.49 for a 24oz bottle it is competitively priced with other body washes, and since most other body washes don't cleanse hair as well, it is an incredible deal! Think about all of those bottles of shampoo you don't have to buy for your family now (and the money you get to keep in your pocket)!

I think the only real downside is for those of us with color treated hair. As of right now, Ivory 2-in-1 isn't formulated for color treated hair. So it isn't going to do much to keep your new color looking fresh.

All in all, Ivory 2-in-1 is a fantastic product for the shower, for our lives and for the environment!

Still not sure about Ivory 2-in-1?
