Ask Your Valentine to "Surprise" You with the Most Pampering Bath and Shower Soaps!

A couple of weeks ago, I received the most enchanting package in recent memory. My box from Frost Yourself Essentials smelled so wonderful when I opened it! And when I opened each of the beautifully wrapped gifts, I was blow away by their detail and beauty...

The owner of Frosty Yourself is Lindsy, a mother of two with a flare for the creative. I love that purchasing from her company means helping support a mom, and all of her products are American made, which is something I'm always looking for. You've seen that the soaps are beautiful but how well do they work, you ask??

I was able to try 6 different soaps from Frost Yourself and I have to say I was blown away with how much better they were than I had imagined! I always expect bar soaps (especially handmade ones) not to lather and to dry out my skin so I was very pleasantly surprised at the softness and silkiness of the Frosty Yourself soaps when using them. They lather incredibly and all of them have a nice, light scent so that you want to keep using them, and they make taking a shower a very pleasurable experience, something we moms really need! My main alone-time is my shower time so I really try to find products to enhance it. 

My favorite soap is this one, the wedding soap. It looks even more beautiful in real life and it smells soooo heavenly. I will tell you that this is my favorite soap I have ever used in all of my life. It's now going to be one of those necessities I always have to have, and would be the best addition to any gift for a bride on her wedding day. ♥ I'm going to have to order some to keep them on hand for those special occasions.
And now for the cupcake soaps! When my hubby saw one of these on the bathroom counter, he said "Why didn't you tell me you made cupcakes, and why is there one in the bathroom?" I laughed at him and I said, "Don't eat it! It's soap!" He had to look closer to believe me. The beauty of these soaps makes them so wonderful for gift giving.

The Whipped soaps have the cutest names--Unicorn Poop and Whipped Monkey Farts (cutest names ever!) How fun would it be to give these as gifts? The Whipped Monkey Farts also smell so good! I know just the person who needs these! (Are you giggling yet?!)
You can purchase Frost Yourself soaps already made, or you can also place a custom order, plus there's even a Soap of the Month Club so that you can be surprised each month with something new and exciting!
Use the code VALENTINESDAY for 15% off from Feb 1-28! Follow Frost Yourself on Facebook to keep updated on future sales and new soaps!

November's Favorite Subscription Box: Bathmatical's Heavenly Goodness!

Last week, I had the immense pleasure of trying out my new products from Bathmatical. Unlike other subscription box companies that send you 1 or 2 full sized products and the rest sample sized, all of these were full size. Awesome! Immediately upon opening the box, the combination of all of the scents wafted into the air.
Each month's box contains an assortment of 5 products from different artisans from around the country.  Items vary every month and can include bath fizzies (like these ones), masks, essential oils, handmade soaps, scrubs, bath teas, body salves, exfoliantes, aromatherapy, and other fancy bath items.
Of course, I had to drop some of the bath salts in, too, but just a bit. I've taken two baths since receiving my Bathmatical box so my bath bombs are gone into oblivion, so next time I'll be dumping a bunch of these in there! I can't wait. New bath adventures are as exciting as new books. They both go so well together!

I wish you could smell this Cranberry Body Polish! It's fluffy, whipped, sugary, and leaves your skin silky smooth. Plus, a little bit of it goes a long way. I followed it up with....

... the Sunshine Face and Body Cream. Another incredibly amazing scent, this time of orange, Japanese yuzu (gonna have to google that one), and Shea Butter, it melted right into my skin and left it so soft.
Legend has it the gorgeous Cleopatra bathed in milk and rose petals to give her silk a creamy glow and fresh scent.  I decided to try my own beauty bath with the products from my boxDid I go a bit overboard using everything from my box in one bath? Maybe... but I'll definitely do it again! After all, there's way more than enough. You guys, I'm telling you, this stuff is absolutey heavenly. All of it. Whoever chooses the products for the monthly Bathmatical boxes deserves a bonus. Or a raise. Something. The combination left my skin so incredibly soft. Try Bathmatical if you want to fall as in love with your skin as Antony was with Cleopatra. ;)
Use the code SISTERHOOD and receive 20% off your first box of a month-to-month subscription--that's $28 total for a box with a retail value of $58! Come back and let me know what goodies you get in your box!
Special thanks to the awesome people at Bathmatical for providing me with this box to review.

My Gorgeous New Winter Fashion Statement and Where to Get Yours

Last year, one of my best friends took me shopping for my birthday at a local boutique store and treated me to some of my favorite accessories, one of which was this beautiful knitted rhinestone headwrap. I stuffed it in the winter tote and forgot about it until last week, when I took it out in the freezing weather and put it on. I just had to take a selfie because I fell instantly in love with it! Isn't it pretty? And it keeps me warm without messing up my curls. Love!
 The headwrap has little rhinestone gems delicately scattered throughout. You can also get it adorned with an adorable knitted flower, and a optional cute heart sparkly button in the center. Very delicate and stylish!

Perfect for the cold weather and wonderful for a stocking stuffer!

You can get it from Walmart for $15.99 (was $21) with free shipping. I don't get a commission on this one and it's not a review item--I just love it and thought my dear readers might, too.

Huge Modarri Deluxe Race Cars Toy Giveaway!

 Modarri's customizeable cars are so amazing--my son was thrilled to find out he had 3 new cars to build in the mail! After three years of collecting them, he still gets excited about them.

During the long race, these Modarris are taking a break in the Pit Stop waiting to get their wheels replaced so they can hit the track again!

Each Modarri car comes with a chassis, hood/windshield, seat pan, seat, fenders and frame, four wheels, front and rear suspensions and a hex tool for taking them all apart and putting them back together or mixing them up. Some of them also come with extra frames. My kids love to build, break, and put together new creations with their toys which is why these cars are so perfect for them!
This is one of the first cars we got. Two years later, these ones are still holding up. Their pieces are high-quality metal and durable plastic. They're impressive! They've been taken apart tons of times and not a one of the screws is stripped.

One of you will win a set of Modarri customizeable race cars! You'll win this 3-pack set, a $60 value! Enter below by 11/22.

Special thanks to the wonderful people at Modarri and Kidstuff PR for providing us with these items to review and giveaway! All opinions are honest and our own.
