Overnight Oats for a hassle-free morning!

A few days ago, I got an awesome package in the mail from Influenster. I got chosen for the Quaker Overnight Oats Voxbox! Talk about excited! They sent me 2 containers to try in exchange for my honest opinion. A blog post wasn't even requested, but hey, gives me something to talk about!

Ok, so I've heard about these Overnight Oats before, but I'm a creature of habit, and don't tend to try things new on my own. I know one of the flavors I WON'T like (I don't like coconut, not even 5%!), so I went ahead and made both packages, and in the morning, I'll get to present my hubby with breakfast in bed before he heads off to work! Realistically, he will eat it in the truck on his way to work, but I can plan on breakfast in bed lol.

The package has simple instructions. Open, fill milk to fill line, stir, close lid, stick in fridge for at least 6 hours! Ok, DONE! Now, we wait and see how it turns out tomorrow morning, and I'll come back with the update! Wish me luck!

I'm back!

I've been on a bit of a hiatus for quite a while. Why? This one:

We welcomed this little bundle of joy back in Sepetmber, and have been enjoying watching him grow and learn! He's 6 months now, and already so independent! He's got an amazing, easy nap schedule, so it gives me time to get back on here!

So, tell me. What have you been up to this past YEAR?! What would you like to see me try and review before you buy it yourself?

Curate Dark & Tempting bar; Review!

Disclaimer: I received a Curate Dark &Tempting bar from Influenster free to review in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions in this post are my own.

Today, while helping my child with homework, I felt the pang of pregnancy hunger creeping up. Luckily, I had my Curate snack bar handy!

Now, I'm pretty iffy when it comes to new foods. Texture is a big deal to me. I have to admit, the first couple bites of this bar were slightly hard for me to swallow. Not because of taste, but because of the textures. Mixing crunchy and chewy isn't something I normally do. 
But, I powered through, and started really appreciating all of the flavors! 

I'm quite the fig lover, so that flavor was easy. Mixing it with all the other flavors that @CurateSnacks did just made it even better! By the end, I was chewing slower, trying to savor every bite!
I'll definitely be looking for a box next time I go to the store!

Keep calm and Wine Down with the VinoAria Wine Aerator

I don't drink very often. But when I do, it's usually a nice, sweet white wine.

I've tried red wine, but it just seems a little to harsh and bitter for me. Not exactly.... smooth.

When I was given the opportunity to try the VinoAria Wine Aerator free in exchange for my honest opinion, I wasn't hopeful, but figured hey, it's an excuse for a girls night in!

It was very easy to use. Stick it in the bottle, and pour! It fits in the wine bottle perfectly, unlike other aerators; which can cause leaks and dripping. Then, I simply poured my wine through the Vino Aria Aerator and into my glass!

I was surprised that i could immediately tell the difference from the scent and taste. This little wonder of a device instantly delivered a more satisfying wine drinking experience. It also downplayedthe bitterness and puckering that I was used to tasting when drinking red wines.

This edition has a unique petal design with a laser engraved logo. The silver ring stands out and adds to the classy look. The rubberized core dries quickly and the sturdy construction of acrylic, you'll be using it for years to come. Unlike other aerators, this is not bulky and it does not require two hands. The aerator offers breathability as it pours with no wait time. This is a highly gifted product, which includes admirable packaging. The black box stands out against the logo.

 When you order today, you're protected by their life time guarantee; whether its 10 days from now or 10 months from now. Just let them know!

Keep yourself safe with these LED Armbands #ledarmband

My son plays outside a lot. He rides his bike, goes to his friends or cousins, or just simply plays with his hot wheels in the yard. He usually has to be home by 7pm, before the sun goes down. Of course, during winter, the sun goes down much sooner. But, I can't keep him locked up all winter just because I'm too paranoid about the dark...... right?

NOT ANYMORE! These LED Armbands that I received free to review in exchange for my honest opinion have saved my sanity,and his playtime!

They are wonderful. They light up nice and bright at the push of the button, and blink at the push of one more. They fit in so many places. He can smack them on his wrist, his ankle, his bike, anywhere!

I can use them, too. Going for an early morning walk? Slap on an armband! Lights go out during a storm? Grab an armband! Have 2 bored children? Straighten out the armbands, and poof, light sabres!

Walk your pup with ease! #PetzBFF_Leash

When you're walking your dog, it's hard to let them have the space to do their "thing" when their leash is only a few feet long. And when its dark, its so hard to clean up after them. And then, oh no, you find out, you forgot those darn baggies!

Petz Bff fixed all of that with their Heavy duty 15 foot retractable dog leash with bright LED light and attachable dog waste bag dispenser.

I was given the opportunity to purchase one at a deep discount in exchange for my honest review. The opinion in this review is my own, and was not swayed, and I was not compensated.

I have a pomeranian whom we usually use a 5 foot leash with her. We would have to walk her for what seemed to be a very long time before she would do her doody. When we received this leash in the mail, my son was thrilled. He immediately hooked our pup up, and took her out. I think they ran for like 10 minutes! They had so much fun just for the sake of fun!

Seriously though, it has been so handy. We hooked the bag dispenser to the leash handle, put a AAA battery in it for the LED light so we could clean up even at night, and made all our lives just that much easier.

This is definitely a 5 star product, and a great, handy tool for any dog owner!

Lashes of an Angel #Lashangel

My eyelashes suck. They are thin. They are light. And there aren't many of them. I just figured that was one of the things that I didn't get blessed with. I've tried those glue-on lashes, but I'm no good at getting those things on right. Seriously, horrible!  

I was lucky enough to be sent a tube of Lash Angel to try at a deep discount in exchange for my honest review. 

I started using the Lash Angel Eyelash Serum the day I got it. I read the directions carefully, and followed them exactly. They're super simple. Apply directly to the roots of your top lashes in a line like you would eyeliner. Do not apply to the bottom lashes, and only use once a day. Easy!

As with most products, it takes time to see major results. I haven't been using it long enough to see anything DRASTIC, but can honestly say that I have noticed my lashes appearing thicker. I can't wait until I actually put on some mascara and REALLY notice the difference! 

With my hand being so shaky, there were a few times that I had to keep each eye closed until it dried because if I opened it, it would burn because I got it a little too close to my eye, oops. But, other than that, everything went great. No discoloration. No side effects. No bad reactions.
