Review: Chapstick duel-ended hydration lock

I was lucky enough to be chosen to receive a free Chapstick duel-ended hydration lock chapstick from Smiley360. I am a HUGE chapstick lover and was glad to try this and offer my feedback on it.

I was given the option to choose this one. Which is the Moisturize and renew. Or the Day & Night. I use other thing's on my lips at night time so I chose to try the moisturize and renew one. And for 1 main reason. I read that it is supposed to help with fine lines, and make your lips look smooth. Right now it's getting cold in my area so I am looking for something to help me get my lips back in shape so that I can wear my Fall lipstick. I don't wear lipstick any other time of year but Fall time.
I wore lipstick for the 2nd time this year and did notice a difference when applying it. My lips seemed smoother, a lot less flaky and chapped, and they lipstick didn't seem to settle down into my lip creases.

The two main thing's that I like about this duel-ended chapstick, is that the actual container has some bulk to it. It's very easy to hold on to, and also easy to find in my purse.
The other thing that I really like is how the chapstick comes out of the tube. Each end has it's own twist top, so it works sort of like a lipstick. The chapstick comes out very smoothly, and goes back down great. There isn't any wasted chapstick, or a broken twist that keeps the chapstick raised up and then you ruin half of it.

One thing I didn't care for, the smell/taste. I don't care who you are, you at some point end up licking your lips and you get that nasty chapstick after taste in your mouth. This chapstick is no different, but might be a little worse than other's. It doesn't have any kind of strong scent to it, which is nice. But it's not a pleasant scent either. It's very hard to explain what I mean without you actually using it.

But all in all, I really like this chapstick. I have been using it all through out the day on a daily basis for a week now.

49 Cent Clothes!!

Yes, you read that title correctly, clothes are only .49!

I'm not sure if I am the only one that didn't know this, BUT every Sunday, Goodwill stores have a special where certain tags on their clothes are 49 cents! WHAT?!?! Yes, this is true! I had no clue about it until last week when I went into a thrift store, found a bunch of sweaters for the upcoming winter, and a friend told me about it.

Nice toilet, eh? ;-)

This WHOLE outfit, only cost me $1.47! Yes, the capri's are a little baggy, but I am thinking with a few more washes and tumble them in the dryer they will be perfect. Anyway, who want's super tight pants anyways? I know I don't.
The cardigan is such a nice quality, heavy and warm. It fit me perfectly. I am not one to button any of my over shirts, so this fits me perfectly. I really like this outfit.

Here is another shirt, with the same tank top and capri's but with a peach colored shirt over the top. This shirt is an Old Navy brand and was only .49. I really like it, it has a stretchy fabric and I like how it looks on me.

And I LOVE this mustard colored cardigan. It has long sleeves at the wrists to roll up, and just looks very classic. I am very happy with this one.

I will for sure be going back again. I also picked up some shirts for my kids, a couple sweaters for my husband for him to wear to work when it get's colder and a couple other shirts for myself that I didn't take a picture of.

Easy Triscuit snack!

Are you looking for a simple snack? Or maybe something easy to bring to a family get together or a road trip? Try this!

Take Dill & Olive Oil Triscuit's. 
In a small bowl combine sour cream and chives
Top each Triscuit with the sour cream and chive mixture.
And then add cut up pickles!

It is DELICIOUS! I started making these over the summer and my kids love them. I also took them to a family get together and a few of our camping trips. I didn't pre-make them. But I had the sour cream and chive mixture ready in another bowl and people just topped the crackers themselves. Such an easy thing to take along with you.

Seventh Generation

^^I received this product for review. All opinion's are my own.

Seventh Generation™ Hand Wash formulas are free of triclosan, dyes and synthetic fragrances? The lively scent of Mandarin Orange & Grapefruit is sure to refresh and awaken your senses. It’s like a touch of sunshine on your countertop!

I received this hand wash from Smiley360. This is my first mission through them and I was SO excited to be chosen!
This hand wash is very citrusy, so if you aren't into that kind of scent I wouldn't choose it for you. For me, It smells more on the mandarin side. Didn't really get a grapefruit smell. But it smells wonderful!

I found this soap to foam up really well. You don't need a lot, which I loved! This bottle will last me along time. I don't find the scent to linger too long on my hands, but it does leave an after smell, which I like. It smells just like mandarin oranges. 

All in all, I really like this hand soap. It smells good, it will last a long time, the bottle is SO cute and will match many home decors as well. Which is always a plus for me! I love matching.
