I was recently sent a Hare Pin and asked to sponsor a post from The Young Designers Collective. The Hare Pin I was sent was handmade and exclusive. It is a hand wrapped gold wire design for the hair. Lightweight and easy to pin. The 2 prongs help keep it in place. This is a small example to the quality in the handmade items the Young Designers Collective Association offers. They are based in New york City and consist of young designers who will be paired with non-profit organizations to offer a product that will bring revenue for the organization and promote the designers name while they work together to benefit each other. It is teamwork at its best where both parties involved benefit from the relationship. It fits their motto of “doing well while doing good”

I was sent a bottle of Resvology for review recently. I have been using it daily for a few weeks now. With the weather changing I tend to notice the flaws a bit more lately. I am only 36 and do not have any major flaws right now, but I have been complimented a bit on my skin and as well. I notice it to be in much better shape now then when I was even younger. Why? Because I read reviews to find the best beauty supplies and try products. I used to wince at spending high dollars on skin care products until I was able to see how much using these products are worth it. It is a bit pricey to care for your skin because it is a science. We owe it to our skin to not be so neglectful and give it the molecules and nutrients it craves. I have begun to get those crows feet wrinkle near my eyes-I tend to blame the 3 boys for that! I love that Resvology is so lightweight. I have used heavy creams that tend to leave a stickiness behind and I hate those. This had no residue, no stickiness. It was just a gentle moisturizing. I began to see improvements after a while in the puffiness for sure and the tightness around my eyes when I am stressed or smiling. Like the tight feeling around my eyes was relieved improving the elasticity.

As I reached out to a few companies to help me support Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Shanrene.com was quick to reply.

Those wristbands that many of you have started purchasing from me were donated which allows me to give 100% of the proceeds to the dvs-snoco.org shelter (postage for mailing the bracelets are on me as my way of donating as well).

I was recently asked to sample some fun socks from a new business Wits+Beaux for review as they start their Kickstarted campaign. As stated in my profile, I love to support small businesses as I come from a family of small business owners. I selected the Rabbit & Hero striped socks. I decided to do all stripe pairs so I can mix and match. If you are a runner, you know how fun quality socks like these can be to incorporate into fun run wardrobes! I see myself using these for running as well as the cold evenings at a ball game to stay warm. The designs are fun and Wits+Beaux now has Ties & Pocket Squares in fun patterns. Now this is a Men’s accessory company, but I wanted the socks for my own self and that is why I chose the one’s I did. I love that they stay secure and don’t fall down. They are thin enough so you don’t overheat in them, but are soft enough to give you added warmth under pants to keep warm on cold days
- They offer fun patterns of knee high socks, ties and pocket hankies/squares
- They will soon offer bow ties and woven belts
- Free shipping on all orders

I was recently sent a bottle of Batiste Dry Shampoo in the Blush Scent to try and as a traveler and all the outdoor and camping activities we do as a family, I love that I discovered this product. It is a ‘dry’ shampoo meaning you have an option to clean and revamp your hair when showers are not available. Camping, boating all day, long power outages are perfect occasions to grab a bottle of Batiste products and help you feel refreshed.
