imageI was given the opportunity to test out this Loreal Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect balm. This is a hair mask that you use once or twice a week on color treated hair to help repair damage and prevent color fading. I apply this all over and leave on for about 5 minutes. It washes out easily and my hair feels super soft afterwards. It does help to de tangle and leave my hair feeling smooth and healthy. It’s not too heavy or greasy feeling either, which is a huge plus. I’m really enjoying this and would recommend. This product was sent to me complimentary from Influenster in exchange for an honest review.


Lunchbox Challenge

imageDid you guys know that Kroger has a brand of organic products that are not only healthy, but affordable as well? The Simple Truth line has many products to choose from, like this applesauce and cheddar snack crackers that were sent to us for free from My Magazine Sharing Network. They make the perfect companion to any school lunch. Check them out next time you’re grocery shopping.

Fresh Ideas from the Freezer

imageI can’t even believe I got all of these awesome freezer items free from My Magazine Sharing network. There is a huge variety from pizza to breakfast items to single serve dinners. I must say, the pizza and potato skins were a huge hit. But my husband and I both enjoyed so many of these items. Next time you’re at Kroger, make sure to check out the freezer section for lots of awesome options for a quick and easy meal. I received these items free for review purposes.

Dove Dry Spray Invisible

My newest mission from My Magazine Sharing Network was two bottles of Dove Invisible Dry Spray deodorants, one for me and one for my husband. These deodorants are perfect for days when you don’t want to risk any white marks on your clothing. They also don’t show any residue when wearing sleeveless shirts. These don’t give quite as much sweat and odor protection as other types, but they work well enough for me and definitely serve a purpose. My husband really enjoyed the smell of his. I received this item free for review purposes, but all opinions are my own.

Suave Honey Infusion

I got to try out some new shampoo and conditioner from a brand I’ve used for years. This is the new Suave Professionals Honey Infusions shampoo and conditioner that I received free for review purposes from My Magazine Sharing Network. This leaves my hair feeling clean and soft, but best of all it smells amazing. I know this is an affordable brand too, which is a definite bonus. Check it out for a bargain product that works great!

Baby my baby


I received another mission from My Magazine Sharing Network and Kroger stores. This one was full of awesome free baby samples. It had everything from wipes, baby food, formula, snacks, and lots of coupons. We shop at Kroger for our kids on a regular basis, and love that they have everything we need to keep our babies happy and healthy. On my next trip I’ll be sure to redeem my coupons for diapers, wipes, and drinks.

Nature’s recipe dog food

We received a coupon for a free bag of Nature’s Recipe dog food, courtesy of Kroger and My Magazine Sharing Network. We got the grain free kind. We recently switched over after noticing our dog was having trouble digesting food and keeping it down. I’m happy to say he’s had no trouble with this food. And while I can’t vouch for the taste, both dogs gobbled it down so I can assume it was tasty too.

Horizon Good & Go! Snack Trays

We received some free snacks courtesy of Kroger and My Magazine Sharing Network. We had two kinds of the┬áNew Horizon Organic Good & Go! Snack Trays. My son loves being able to get his own snack and I love giving him a healthy treat. My oldest son loved everything except the raisins, but my toddler gladly ate them. They’re also convenient and easy to take on the go, which is always a plus. This is a quality snack that makes the whole family happy.

Olay Body Washes


I’ve been using Olay body washes for years. I love the Fresh Outlast line because all the scents smell amazing. This one is a great combination of fresh and fruity. They also do a great job at cleaning my skin, while still leaving it feeling soft and nourished. I highly recommend these and you can even find them on Rollback at Walmart. This post is part of a contest for Influenster.

StainMaster Carpet Cleaner


I recently picked up a free bottle of Stainmaster high traffic carpet cleaner courtesy of Kroger, thanks to My Magazine Sharing Network. This is a spray foam that you sparky on your carpet, let dry, then vacuum. It works well to freshen carpets and I’m sure it removes some of the dirt, but for super stained carpet or highly soiled areas I still recommend a good scrubbing. They do have a pet stain cleaner I’d like to try out as well.
