Meet Our New Puppy! #PetbrosiaFree10LbBag!

Special thanks to the wonderful people at Petbrosia for this review opportunity!All opinions are honest and our own.

We have a new family member.  Isn't she adorable?  Her name is Lucy, and we love her to pieces!  She is the sweetest thing.  She dances for treats, plays fetch, is so soft and cuddly, not to mention absolutely playful.  She brings so much joy to us!  I stumbled across Petbrosia when I was looking for a healthy puppy food for her.  I've ordered Petbrosia twice and have been so happy with them!  The food is perfect for Lucy--it's actually tailor-made to her breed, size, and age.  She has the free-run chicken variety, and there is also grain-free salmon.  They make food for both dogs and cats.  Plus, the super nice people there also send additional goodies along!

In Lucy's first box of Petbrosia, she received a free bag of puppy cookies which have lasted us a couple weeks.  Every morning, she does a little dance for her cookie and then she eats her breakfast.  After we bless her meal, of course. ;) So far, we haven't paid a penny for Lucy's pet food b/c of the great promos Petbrosia has.  Her first box of food was complimentary for bloggers, while her second 10 lb box was free (even free shipping!) when we signed up for the autofill plan (a plan which will send us a box of food whenever we run out, once again tailor made for Lucy's needs).  Very convenient and affordable!  We love it!

Brilliant Sky Toys: An Incredible Toy Store #HolidayGiftGuide

When I heard about Brilliant Sky Toys, I so wished there was one nearby!  As there isn't, I was still blessed to be able to look through their list of award winning toys, books, and games to get Christmas ideas for my kiddos.   The store has come up with a list of 10 Brilliance Award winners, and my children and I definitely applaud their choices.  I had the opportunity to review 4 of these toys, all of which are wonderful! 

We chose to review the Plus-Plus Mini-Basic (a super cool building set all of my kiddos love. It came with instructions to build SO many things and, once you've got down how they work, they foster so much creativity!), Lottie Dolls (a favorite in our house), Create Your Own Storybook (my daughters love writing and this actually publishes their book!), and the Sew Cute Owl Set (my daughter has been wanting to learn to sew and she absolutely loved this set, and so did I).  I love this selection of toys!

...with a guy driving it!

And here's a video of one of our favorite toys: the "Autumn Leaves Lottie Doll".  I absolutely love Lottie Dolls!  They're so sweet, and so perfect--very original and unique, and a great option over Barbies.  Many of them are scientists, animal lovers, nature girls, and just all out active and charming little ladies.

For the fifth year in a row, parents and grandparents alike can use this brilliant list as a guide for holiday shopping, birthday presents and Thanksgiving homecoming gifts.  The Brilliant Sky chain chooses its Brilliance Award Winners upon quality, the value of open-ended play and the simple beauty of a child's fascination and delight. With the huge variety of toy buying occasions coming up, there’s truly something for everyone represented in this great group of toys. From finger puppets, arts & crafts kits, dolls and building bricks, it’s evident that childhood playtime really hasn't changed that much!

The Top 10 Brilliance Award Winners:

·        Squigz Starter Set (24 pieces)
·        Plus-Plus Mini-Basic (480 pieces)
·        Lottie Dolls
·        Doodle Quest
·        Create Your Own Storybook

Redecorating! A Curtain & Bath Outlet Gift Card Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

Curtain and Bath Outlet has so many gorgeous products!  I chose to review their Portland Grommet Curtain Panels in blue. My little guy often wakes up with the sunrise and I thought these they'd be perfect to block out that early sunlight, especially because they come in his favorite color.  These curtains have a textured look, give the windows depth, and save energy  (pic coming soon!).  They also block out light, just like I was hoping!  They're super affordable at about $14 each.  Their store also has bedding, bath, rugs, accessories, and furniture.  Definitely a store I'm going to be remembering next time I decide to redecorate!  I would so love a gift card from there for Christmas... which is why I've added them to our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide.

One winner will receive a $25 e-gift card!  Enter below by 11/28 at 11 pm anyone's time.  I'll choose a winner the next morning.

Use Coupon Code sisterhood10 for an additional 10% discount from 11/18 - 12/18! An amazing deal!

Become Your Own Makeup Artist! #PaulaDorfBrows

I was introduced to Paula Dorf Cosmetics through their new 2+1 for Brows, a product I instantly fell in love with!  I use it along with their Perfect Brow Brush.  Together, they create perfect looking brows that last all day. 2 flattering colors + 1 light wax = natural-looking brows. The 2+1 Brows creates a perfect color match and fills in any missing hairs or imperfections for brows that last all day.  You run your brow brush along the wax, and then along the color you'd like, and then along your brow.  It comes in brunette, blonde, red, and neutral.  It costs $26 and lasts for months... plus you get the super nice brush for free.  As you can see from my before and after pics, it creates a nicer, smoother look.  I like it so much!  And it's so easy to use! 

Before. Not too bad but...
After.  So much better!
