100% Pure Review

I’m an ANIMAL NUT! I say this in the best way possible but also to mark that our home is all about voicing our opinions on Animal Cruelty. No, my daughter will never see the likes of Sea World or the local traveling circus, but she will enjoy the beauty of animals in their natural form FREE!! When I was given the opportunity to review 100% Pure I was IMMEDIATELY on board. They are a strong willed company that is not afraid to say how they feel about Animal Abuse. There is no other way to put it as they say it best…

Well how are their products, you ask? I’d say AMAZING!!!! I have collected a massive assortment of Make-up and Beauty products through the years of working as an Aesthetician so I can say from a professional and personal standpoint that these products ROCKED MY WORLD!! Beauty Products are loaded with HARSH chemicals…I will shout the sentence “If you only knew” out there but will save it for a later post. If you are that curious you can google it, but we are talking MAJOR Brands here people. As with any product transition, your skin needs time to adjust and adapt. I held off writing this post even though I wanted to RAVE about it on day 3…Well here I am day 8 and I am even more in love. It has changed my skin in the purist way possible. In fact my skin has never been so clear and soft! 

Luminous Primer Vitamins + Antioxidants With Resveratrol ($28)
“Light reflective pigments diffuse the look of lines and wrinkles and make skin instantly luminous, brighter, healthier and glowing. Infused with red wine resveratrol, vitamins and antioxidants to shield from free radical damage.” (100% Pure) and let me tell you, putting on make-up at 7 A.M. for teaching and having it stay on until I get how is a task in itself. This product definitely increases the longevity of make-up wear throughout the day!!!
Key Benefits
  • 100% natural, 100% vegan, gluten free
  • light reflective pigments luminize skin for a healthy glow
  • red wine resveratrol, vitamins and antioxidants shield skin from free radical damage
  • helps to prep skin for longer lasting makeup
  • silicone-free
Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream 1Oz ($21) 
Now I don't drink coffee...In fact I have never even tried it, but I do have to say I LOVE the smell of it. This Eye Cream is truly astonishing. The quality in these products is a "You Must try it, to believe it." You don't know what your missing!!! 
Key Benefits
  • clinically proven to de-puff and brighten dark circles
  • clinically proven to lessen lines and wrinkles

“This super nourishing facial moisturizer immediately hydrates and feeds your skin with anti-aging nutrients to address aging and sun damage. This formula is full of skin beneficial ingredients: hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins; Coffee Cherry, Green Coffee and Green Tea which together are powerfully rich in antioxidants, caffeine and ECEG.” (100% Pure)  

Fruit Pigmented Pretty Naked Palette ($35)
This Palette makes my Heart Sing, I LOVE IT!!! What the peeps at 100% Pure had to say about it, “This Pretty Naked Palette will make you look gorgeous, naturally. Soft, neutral tones that will enhance and beautify without making you look too made up. 100% Natural, nourishing formulas packed with antioxidants, vitamins and beautiful colors from pigments of fruits, seeds, flowers and vegetables.” And they are so right!!!! My face has never felt so fresh and free, but completely made up!!
Key Benefits
  • palette contains: pink champagne luminescent powder, pretty naked blush, and eyeshadows in flax seed, toffee, and chestnut
  • colored from the pigments of fruits, seeds, flowers, and vegetables
  • universally flattering soft, neutral tones
  • natural formulas free of any harmful toxins
From a Mommy Perspective: Being the mama bear that I am, I never want to put my child in harm’s way. My Baby is definitely a spicy monkey and likes to give full on open mouth kisses to the side of my cheek, eyes and basically where ever her drooling mouth may land. In any event, I feel confident that her precious little mouth is NOT licking up harmful chemicals, and everything she may come into contact with is 100% Pure ;)

The Easter Bunny

We went to go see the Easter Bunny this weekend at The Hebert Candy Manson. It was quite the “Event” and Sophia being our little Rebel wasn’t down with the Frills. Little Lady might have been the ONLY child there not Rocking an Easter Hat and Dress. Although we did have the hat and three of her Easter Dresses packed! She was dead set on going in RIGHT away, so we settled for some Seven’s cropped, GPtop, Freshly Picked Moccs and a headwrap. Have to admit she looked pretty bad ass…Sat on the Bunny like a Boss. Baby after Baby, Toddler after Toddler the Screams were ever present.

I was curious how my tiny So would take to this GIANT bunny with its huge arms outstretched…Well she practically lept into his arms, began to clench and rub the soft fur. Now comes the “Picture” part….and a Herbert employee to our left with a big tray of samples. Sophia was fixated on this sparkling platter of goodness. I snapped about 100 pictures and our turn was up. Sophia was totally kicked back with her Animal Friend and was so not interested in leaving at all.
 We did it….Our First EASTER ADVENTURE!! I tell ya…I’m totally LOVING this mommy business.

Woolzie Review

I received this product free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% Honest.
We received the Woolzie dyers balls to review and I have to say I didnt really know what to think at first. I'm one of those that throws 5 dryer sheets in the dryer and never stopped to think about all the chemicals until Sophia was born. With Woolzies it takes the the fear out of my mind while making our clothes super soft, not to mention I usually run the dryer for 60min every time and now I only run it for 35 minutes and the clothes are dry!!!! I LOVE WOOLZIES XL Dryer Balls!!!! Best Thing EVER 

Here's what the Peeps at Woolzies had to say "Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally without any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners. Unlike the plastic dryer balls, they are PVC free and won’t fall apart or melt on you. Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load."
They also help reduce static and wrinkles. Making them perfect for my dress shirts and pants!!

"Use Woolzies to snuggle up with naturally downy soft laundry that’s completely free of harmful chemicals.
Woolzies are also hypo-allergenic and totally safe for people with wool sensitivities as they will not shed onto your laundry. Unlike even natural dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for 1,000 loads and are therefore extremely eco friendly. So why risk your health and waste your money with regular fabric softeners when you can save time, energy and money with all natural pure Woolzies!" (Woolzie)


Thirty-One Review

I received this product free for review purchases but all opinions are 100% honest.

        Sophia and I were offered the opportunity to do a review for Thirty-One.  I have heard of people having these “Thirty-One” parties but never knew what all the hype was about. Thirty-One sent over a Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote in Navy Wave with turquoise personalization, a thermal tote in Navy Wave/Paradise Pop and a Key Fob in Paradise Pop. And can I just say I LOVE THIRTY-ONE! Everything is so adorable and functional! Functional being the key word here. I HAVE to be organized, especially when it comes to a mom on the go. I adore the key fob, because you all know how I ALWAYS lose my keys! The thermal tote is perfect for my lunch and Sophia’s bottles and the Utility bag, literally does it all! It makes everything organized and assessable. Not to mention the fabulous prints, They are BEAUTIFUL!!  All in all the Thirty-One items are to Die For! A little background on the Company…

  The Thirty-One Story
“Just over 10 years ago, Thirty-One was formed with a simple goal of helping women by giving them an opportunity to own their own business. Through God's strength, we've built a family of individuals who feel women deserve to treat themselves and those around them to something special. That mission is at the center of everything we do as a company.

We are always looking to welcome new women into our family, and we’re proud to support them along every step of their Thirty-One journey.” (Thirty-One Founder) 

Sophia and I fully support woman who journey out on their entrepreneur endeavors…and  Karol Kellar is that woman. She is an Independent Director, for Thirty One Gifts! Did I mention One of my Lucky Readers will win the same Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote I received!!!!!! There are 2 easy ways to enter!! 

1.  An entry for joining her FB customer group, this is one of the main ways that she benefits from this review is by gaining new followers :)  Here is the link to her page called, Karol's TOTE-ally Awesome Totes and More,

2.  An entry to filling out her 2 question survey where you can request to join her monthly newsletter, receive a catalog or info about hosting a party or joining her team.  Probably most important to her business & how she will receive new contacts.  Here is the link for the survey,

What can you use your New Tote for....
 If that wasn’t reason enough to fall in love with Thirty-One, she is also offering 10% off your ENTIRE order for anyone who places orders at under the Sarah's Blog Review party.  The 10% will be taken off once you submit the order.  The event will close on April 25th.  So go check it out!!!! So many fun new things for spring!!! 

A few MUST HAVES on my list for this Summer.....
 Not to mention it makes the perfect gift....You can make one for any occasion, Birthday, Baby Shower, Christmas, Easter...even teacher appreciation week!! As a teacher and mom I know how useful these bags really are!! The possibilities are endless!! I'm so excited that I was able to share this Thirty-One review with you all!
