Kids Academy iOS App

I recently downloaded the Preschool and Kindergarten Learning Kid Games from Kids Academy Company for my old iPhone. Bella loves playing on my iPhone, and I have one of those Fisher Price Apptivity Cases for it so she can't ruin it while playing. This app so far has been fun. We've only had it two days and I'm really impressed. 

The app features:
letters and words
numbers and number sequence
an exploratory environment filled with surprises
funny, bright, creative artwork
animated flash cards
and the app is aligned to Kindergarten Reading Foundation skills of Common Core Standards

So far, she seems to really have fun with this app, and I can see her wheels turning. You know that moment when you can see your kid really is understanding something? Yea, I can see that with her. Granted, she is only 19 months and won't be going into Kindergarten any time soon, but I'm all for trying to help her learn as much as possible before she even starts school. 

I think this app is a great download, it is free (at least it is right now), and well worth it. 

The full name of the app is: 

*I received compensation to download, review, and share my honest opinion about this app. The compensation received has NOT affected my thoughts on this app at all.*

My Review of JustFab

You've seen the ads all over everywhere. The shoes and handbags, they look fabulous. You've seen the commercials of women going crazy how every fabulous shoe is only $39.95. So, I gave in. I decided to buy. I fully knew that once I ordered I would need to go back each month and decide whether or not to purchase for that month, or it would automatically charge my card. I know what kind of shoes I like (wedges) and I knew which ones I wanted to buy.

Review: FitTea

I've never used a detox, or drank tea that gives energy, boosts metabolism, etc because I figured they were all fads and would eventually be proven to not work. But when I was approached to try and review FitTea, I jumped at it - it was a way to try something that I didn't think would work - and I kinda like being proven wrong.

Review: Hask Hair Products

I was recently sent the products mentioned below to sample and write a review. My opinion is 100% my own.

I recently received a pack of goodies from the brand Hask. Let me tell you, it was more than I expected! I received full size bottles of the Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner. I also received a bottle of the Repairing Shine Oil, and a packet of the Repairing Deep Conditioner. I received full size bottles of their Keratin Protein line as well; Shampoo, Conditioner, Repairing Shine Oil and the Repairing Deep Conditioner. They all came inside a pink shower caddy.

Sinus Congestion Keeping Ya Down? Sudafed wants to help!

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.
I hate my sinus issues.

Even worse, I hate what they do to me. If I get on a good sneezing streak, I can easily end up with a cold or sinus infection. I can tell because after about 12 sneezes in a row (not an exaggeration) I’ll feel it in my nose, and then within a few hours its a full blown cold. Ugh. I hate it. Oh, the nasal-y voice I get from this is such a turn on! >please hear my sarcasm here<

Target - Not a Fan of Curves

I used to love Target.

Mainly because I loved the dresses they had in the plus size department. Yes, I said plus size. I am curvy. Voluptuous. Fabulous. And like most plus sized gals, I like to look good in my clothes.

I didn't know for the longest time that I had the option to get clothes at Target in my size. It was a random shopping experience that I discovered it. I can't remember why I was there, but I had a gift card. So I went. I was a die-hard Walmart fan. Love Walmart because I can get everything in one stop. Always thought Target was over priced.

My New Fave Handbag

I actually received this handbag a couple months ago. I just keep forgetting to share with you all!

I really love purses. When I was younger I liked them small. Now that I'm older, I love them big! The bigger the better! The more I can fit in it, the better! Especially with a toddler, I find that I'll throw something in my bag for her instead of taking the full diaper bag. Especially if its just a quick trip.
My Bag!

Review: Victoria Jackson "No Makeup" Makeup

I received the product mentioned below in return for my honest opinion. 

I received a Victoria Jackson "No Makeup" Makeup foundation to try and review. The one I was sent had two colors, it is the foundation duo. This way, you can blend until you achieve the right color for your skin tone. It retails for $29.95. There are three shades available, a light, medium and dark. Basically, you choose one of the three shades, and each one comes with a light and dark shade, when combined it should be easy to match to your skin. I chose the light, because I am light skinned, I am not a medium - not that I know of. But according to this, maybe I should have gotten a medium. The light is for fair/ivory, medium is for light-medium to beige that become tan in the sun (I burn!), tan is for olive and golden while dark is for deep, rich skin tones and for women with darker complexions. According to this, I believe I would be light, because I burn in the sun, then eventually it tans. Mostly, I turn red - especially in my face.
