Add Wet Ones Wipes to Lunchboxes


Attention moms. Listen up. As a third grade teacher, I can tell you that your children's hands get very germy at school. They just do. That is why you need to start adding a Wet Ones wipe to your children's lunchboxes! I have seen these lunches that you pack for them. They are like an art form. Fancy sandwich shapes and fruit cut into darling little patterns. And you want them to "dig in" with dirty hands? 


Adding a Wet Ones wipe to the lunch you've putting so much heart into, will just make your child's lunch experience that much healthier. Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes actually clean up grubby and sticky hands. So when soap and water aren't handy, grab Wet Ones Wipes to kill 99.99% of bacteria, wipe away grime, and get nice soft hands. Thanks to their Aloe formula, they won't dry or irritate your skin like hand sanitizers can. And, they're hypoallergenic. In Fresh Scent or Citrus, Wet Ones hand wipes smell great too.


Pack them a lunch worthy of Wet Ones for your chance to win! Now’s your chance to pack some real fun into their lunchbox! Upload a photo of the lunch you’ve packed for your chance to win $1,000, plus a year’s supply of Wet Ones for home and your kid’s classroom. Wow. Now that would be incredible (says a teacher)!

Current Drugstore Beauty Faves


I love finding affordable and effective beauty products from the drugstore. Everyone loves to indulge, but these finds won't break the bank! Proof that the drugstore has nearly everything you need for great skin, hair and makeup. Here are my favorites from this month.

1 | Method Pure Naked Moisturizing Body Wash | I love using Method products for cleaning my home. Why not use this cult favorite to clean your body too? Method Pure Naked Moisturizing Body Wash is packed with rich moisturizers without containing any dirty stuff, like parabens, phthalates or EDTA. It simply leaves your birthday suit soft, clean and delicately scented in a fresh, nature-inspired fragrance. I tried the clean smelling Olive Leaf scent. It's olive leaf + some fresh herbs + a tiny bit of citrus. Just pure and clean.


2 | Sinful Colors Nail Polish | Sinful Colors gives you the shades you crave at a price you can afford. I reviewed the perfect-for-fall shades of Dream On (pop of purple) and Gogo Girl (hot fire engine red). 


3 | L'Oreal La Palette Nude 2 | Yes, you can get a nude palette that delivers intense, long-lasting color, without spending a fortune! Inspired and created by makeup artists, La Palette Nude 2 eyeshadow palette offers the tools to master the art of nude eyeshadow. 10 high-impact shades in taupe, mauve, plum with three shadow finishes: satin, matte and lustrous sheen. The dual tip brush has a foam side for application and a bristle side for blending and layering. It is so much fun to play with this palette!


4 | Total Intensity Cosmetics | Total Intensity is a brand that empowers consumers to show off their originality and stand out from the main stream. I tried the Color Rush Eyeshadow in The Chase. Talk about pigmented! This stuff is not playing around. The advanced formulation provides a controlled and even pigment release during application. It imparts ultra-cream and even application,high pigment, vibrant and lasting color registration, extended wear and skin conditioning benefits. The Long Lasting Intense Color Eyeliner in Powerful Purple delivers Intense color with deep black undertones. It lasts up to 10 hours! This eyeliner isn't going anywhere. It is both waterproof, and smudge proof. Finally, the Total Wear Lip Crayon in U Red My Mind is a luxurious creamy smooth lipstick that in a single stroke, delivers intense and stay-true color and luminous finish. Does anyone watch Big Brother? This is Meg red. It glides on effortlessly and stays put without running or feathering while conditioning lips. I can't wait to try more from this line!


5 | Maybelline Volum' Express The Mega Plush Mascara and Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss | Mega volume goes mega plush with Maybelline's first gel-mousse mascara . It leaves lashes never brittle or flaky. I love the extra-soft, patented Flexor Brush! It caresses lashes and coats more evenly. Color + shine meets serious care with Baby Lips Lip Gloss. Never sticky, the oils moisturize, smooth, and soften for four hours so lips never feel dry.


6 | Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup | I am so picky about my foundation! I need to have something that is light, yet gives me coverage. Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup gives naturally beautiful coverage that takes your skin's healthy look seriously. It takes over where your skin care leaves off. Silky-light coverage glides on for a perfectly natural look, while the exclusive blend plus Broad Spectrum SPF 20 work together to visibly improve skin's luminosity, tone, and texture. I love the lightweight texture that I can build to get the look I desire. Yet, when I finish, it looks like it is barely there! I tried shades 20 Natural Ivory and 40 Nude. 


7 | L'Oreal Paris Nutri-Gloss System | The Nutri-Gloss system acts like a glossing treatment with every use. A silky, flowing touch adds new luster to every strand. The shampoo and conditioner can be used with normal or dull hair. The glossing mist adds a multi-faceted top coat shine effect. It laminates strands for glossy shine. I love this system. My hair looks so vibrant!

Poise Impressa at Rite Aid


If you suffer from Stress Urinary Incontinence, Poise Impressa Bladder Supports can help. They do not absorb leaks - they help prevent them. Stopping leaks starts with the Poise Impressa Sizing Kit. It is available now at most Rite Aid stores and at RiteAid.com with FREE SHIPPING for the rest of 2015!


Why do you need the sizing kit? Impressa comes in three different sizes, and the Sizing Kit helps you find your most effective and comfortable internal fit. Poise Impressa Bladder Supports sizes are based on their internal fit, not the amount you leak or your weight. Each kit includes six bladder supports (two of each size), along with a $4 coupon toward a 10-count Single-Size Pack of Impressa.


Yes it does look like a tampon. But it's not. Impressa Bladder Supports are inserted and removed the same way as a tampon, but work very differently. Remember, Impressa does not absorb leaks - it helps stop them from happening. They provide up to 8 hours of leak prevention. 


Designed for comfort, Impressa Bladder Supports are made of soft, flexible silicone enclosed in a non-absorbent covering. You can use the bathroom normally while inserted. To discard it, simply throw it in the trash.


Poise Impressa Bladder Supports are available over the counter at Rite Aid and RiteAid.com. They are FDA-cleared and gynecologist-tested. For more information, visit RiteAid.com/Impressa or Poise.com/Impressa.

Interior Design Services from Homepolish

**This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.**


Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have an interior designer in your home? It’s no longer just a fantasy with help from the interior design start-up Homepolish. They make it easy (and affordable!) to get an interior designer in your home who will help create the perfect space for you. 


The experience is truly one of a kind so we decided to break it down for you in three easy steps:

1. Let the designer get to know you. Tell them the bare bones: are you interested in working on a home, office, store or something else? How big is it? Do you have a project budget? Do you own or rent? And then tell them the juicy stuff: What inspires you? What does your ultimate dream space look like? From picking paint colors to gutting a brownstone, they can handle any project, any size.

2. The first date, aka meet your Homepolish designer. During your initial 1 hour consultation, you will meet the designer. You and your designer meet, they tour your space, you guys chat. Then your designer follows up with a few design options for improving your home/office/whatever. They start with a one hour consultation so that their designer can understand your goals, needs and wants. Communication is the foundation to every healthy relationship!


Homepolish wants the relationship between you and their designer to be as stress-free and helpful as possible. If during the initial consultation, you and your designer don't get along perfectly, Homepolish will tweak the matchmaking process and send another on the house. The initial consult is $50 or $80 (Junior and Senior rates). If you're over it, there's no pressure to buy hours after the consult.

3. Purchase your designer’s time. One of the many reasons Homepolish is unique to the interior design world is because you purchase time by the hour. Every hour is spent working on what you need - from picking paint colors to sending you furniture options to renovating your loft. Whatever the size and however complicated your project is, they are there to help! Junior designers' time costs $100/hour, Seniors' cost $130/hour and they have two package options: a Single Day Session (three hours) and The Design Package (as much time as you want with a minimum purchase of ten hours). Save time and money, sign up with Homepolish and rework your space with an expert!


Summer Fragrance Picks‏


Upgrade your fragrance for summer with these picks for the rest of the season. From a flirty fragrance to an exotic fragrance to a tool that let's you take your favorite scent with you, here are my picks.


LOVE2LOVE Bluebell + White Tea ($10) is the latest addition to the captivating range of perfectly paired scents for perfect pairs in love. The perfect summer fragrance, this sensual scent instantly enchants with a burst of Italian bergamot, blueberry white tea and nectarine. The refreshing opening mingles with middle notes of orange flower, bluebell flower and jasmine sambac to completely draw in your senses. An earthy blend of cashmere woods, sheer musk and white amber at the bottom represent the calming feeling that comes from being wrapped in your true love’s arms. This is a fun and flirty fragrance with a floral embrace. I love wearing this one on date night. 


Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Fragrance in Vanilla Coconut ($58) will instant transport to you to paradise! A carefree and tropical escape awaits with this exotic blend of young creamy coconut, sweet Tahitian tiare flower and warm Madagascar vanilla. Each of Lavanila’s all-natural fragrances start with the warm base of Madagascar vanilla and layer on a unique blend of pure essential oils. In this case, yummy vanilla. This scent is so warm and yummy, it might remind you of your grandmother's kitchen. It is warm, sweet, and inviting. 


The TRAVALO Classic Excel Fragrance Atomizer ($15) refills directly from a standard perfume bottle. Fragrance is easily and magically transferred from one sealed bottle into another in just a few seconds! The Classic Excel is designed to slip into bags or pockets easily and moves around smoothly, so you hardly know it's there until you need it. This makes it perfect for summer travel. It features an integrated fill level indicator window, so you never run out unexpectedly, and you never over fill it. I keep it in my handbag and it comes in to handy whenever I need to freshen up! Use it in the nightclub, before business meetings, or after exercise. Aircraft approved, never Tavalo without one!
