Thermal-Aid Bear - Natural Heating and Cooling Pack for Kids Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Cold and flu season is upon us and of course that means fevers, germs, and overall ouchies. I know with both of my boys being in school now we've been sick numerous times already this year and it's only October. Well, with the help of Thermal-Aid and their super cool bears, fevers and ouchies just got a little less miserable!

About Thermal-Aid:
Thermal-Aid is a revolutionary, 100% natural therapeutic heating/cooling treatment pack specifically designed for the medical field, to reduce swelling and relieve pain. Our researchers worked closely with milling engineers from the largest agribusiness companies in the world to create a line of products, using a unique process, which allows a specialized corn to hold temperatures for long periods of time. This process removes the germ from the kernel, thus removing virtually all the moisture and preventing mold or fungi from forming. The entire process hardens the corn segments, causing an even temperature in each segment, and creating extended temperature retainment (hot and cold). This also extends the life of the corn beyond that of the material it’s sewn into!

Holding onto the Nuclear Family

The most valuable goal in life is the preservation of the nuclear family. So many families today go through the pain of separation either by choice or unfortunate circumstances that create a great deal of envy in people without a close family for those who do have one.  A close family would go to the end of the earth and back for each other if it means remaining happy, healthy, and safe.

Part of that healthy preservation means trying new ideas that may seem a little unorthodox but in actuality have the power to help keep your family together.  The world battles with illness and disease on a regular basis that medical experts are increasingly trying to find new methods of treatment to cope with infection.  Medical breakthroughs however, have made it possible for families to have hope when tragedy strikes.

Ornaments With Love Review and Giveaway *Closed*

I love Christmas! I love picking out our Christmas tree every year and I especially love decorating the house for Christmas, inside and out! We're not the type of people that have a themed Christmas tree, it's more of a hodgepodge of ornaments representing everything that has happened in our lives including an ornament from Nate and I's first Christmas, our first Christmas as a family, both of our boys' first Christmases, and of course all of our favorite things from cartoons, to snowmen, and everything else.

Well, my favorite type of ornaments are personalized ones so when I discovered Ornaments With Love and their vast selection of personalized Christmas ornaments I fell in love! Of course I was super excited when they offered to send us an ornament to review. Their website is very easy to navigate and you can choose from different categories to make finding the perfect ornament for you quick and painless.

Beautiful Fall Bouquets from Teleflora

I am a sucker for fall colors. The dark reds and rustic oranges, I mean they're absolutely gorgeous! And what better way to display these gorgeous colors than with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Teleflora?

I was browsing Teleflora's website and I was amazed at the variety of fall bouquets they have to offer. They have everything including sunflowers, orange roses, and red daisies all arranged so beautifully in ceramic pumpkins, ceramic acorns, and even cornucopia-shaped wicker baskets. They are absolutely perfect for this time of year!

So, when you're thinking about sending a gift this Thanksgiving, or even next week on Halloween, consider sending a beautiful fall arrangement from Teleflora. The prices are great and the flowers are hand-delivered fresh and vibrant by a Teleflora florist.

Disclosure: This sponsored post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. I was compensated for my time investment and work on this campaign. Thoughts are my own.

It's in the Bag Sponsor Spotlight: PonyUP! Kentucky Handbags

I have a special place in my heart for companies that help to raise money for animals. While most have it set up where 10-20% of their proceeds go to helping these animals, PonyUP! Kentucky donates 100% of their profits to horses in need. Pretty great, right?!

I was recently given the opportunity to browse the PonyUP! website and choose a handbag to review. Honestly, there are so many cute bags to choose from it was actually quite hard to decide, but I ended up going with the Giraffabulous Equestrian Hobo which has a really neat giraffe print.

As soon as the bag arrived I was in love. This unique, equestrian-style handbag features a horse-halter strap with a brass nameplate that can be personalized with either your name, the name of your favorite horse, or even your favorite saying (up to twenty characters). The uniqueness of the bag really makes it stand out in a crowd making it easy to share this amazing company with others.

Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetics Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Before I became a mom makeup was a very important part of my daily routine. I put in on each and every day regardless of what I would be doing that day, it just made me feel complete. Well, as soon as I became a stay home mom makeup became the last thing on my mind. In fact nowadays you will rarely see me with makeup on at all... But when I do wear makeup I want it to be something that allows my skin to breathe. That's where Mia Mariu mineral makeup comes in.

I've always been a fan of mineral makeup. I love how light it feels on my skin and I especially love the fact that it actually looks better as the day goes on as opposed to looking cakey and oily like most foundations. I've always had a problem finding the perfect shade of foundation for my face because I tan very well in the summer but get very pale in the winter. Luckily, Mia Mariu has this awesome shade finder to help you find the perfect shade of foundation for your skin tone.

I was recently sent three products from Mia Mariu to review including the perfecting finish mineral primer, perfecting finish mineral cream concealer, and perfecting finish mineral cream foundation. After using the shade finder and comparing my skin to that of the images I decided to give the Miel shade a try and luckily it was dead on!
