Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis Cat Treats | Chewy.com Review



Another month means another review from Anna and Bailey! This month the girls had the chance to try out the Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis Cat Treats that can be found on Chewy.com.

If you are a long time reader, then you know that those 2 cats absolutely love cat treats. They go nuts for them! They were quite eager to give these a try since it is from a brand they have never yet tried. At first, they had a hard time eating the treats. They are suppose to be mini's but honestly they are larger than most of my normal cat treats. So I ended up breaking the treats apart for them, and they were able to dive in. They really enjoyed these, and would eat them up as fast as they could!

I also passed some of these treats along to my mother to give to her 2 cats, and she had the same feedback that I have. She too had to break up the treats for her girls to be able to eat them. And her cats too absolutely loved these!

Rose Cup - Menstrual Cup By Intimate Rose | Review




I have been dealing with periods since I was 8 years old. I have mostly stuck to using pads because I never liked tampons. I always heard about TSS and it just frightened me too much to even risk it. A few years ago when I started seeing menstrual cups on the market, I was very eager to try them. So I did. I have found that they can either be wins or fails. Every vagina is different, shaped different, and different sized. I have used just about every name brand menstrual cup you can find on store shelves, and have found only 1 to work really well for me. So going into this review, I will say that I am not new to menstrual cups, I am quite seasoned.

I ordered this menstrual cup in the small size, I am 27 years old, and I have never given birth. In all the brands of menstrual cups I am always the smallest size. When this arrived, it was slightly larger than my other menstrual cups, but not by too much. About a week after this arrived in the mail, so did my period. I was excited to try this out and see how it would compare to my favorite cup. It is a flexible cup, and does fold easily. Upon first use, I washed it with feminine wash, and then inserted it. It took me a few minutes to get this cup inside. I tried putting the cup in by pushing down on one side and creating what I call a rose bud shape, then I tried making the C shape. Both ways I could not get the cup to release from these positions once inside. I tried inserting in every position I could think of, but still no luck. My personal thought is that this cup is just too big for me. If it was a little smaller perhaps it would fit a bit better and more securely. To make sure that it wasn't just me having a difficult day, I grabbed 3 of my other menstrual cups and inserted them. I didn't have any issues at all. So I gave it a rest for the day. Next day I figured I'd try again. No go. I would get the cup in, but it just wouldn't unfold from its insertion position. I have never had this problem with any of my other cups, so I took to Google to see if there are others having this problem with menstrual cups. Apparently it is a issue for many women, especially those who are smaller down below. Basically from what I read, some cups will work with you, and other cups just won't.

Handmade Greeting Card - Thank You Set by Envite Designs | Review

One thing that I absolutely love is the "old fashioned" way of communication, sending written cards. I love taking the time and writing to someone, whether it be a simple birthday greeting, a quick hello, or a thoughtful thank you note. I feel that taking the time to write down your thoughts and sending it to that special someone really adds a personal touch to things that has become somewhat lost in this digital age.

I was kindly sent a set of handmade thank you cards from Envite Designs. The moment they arrived, I knew I was in for a treat. They were packaged very simply yet so sweetly in a brown paper lunch bag that had scalloped trimmed edges. A piece of string wrapped around the bag, and it just felt so retro... I absolutely loved it! Inside the bag was a very cute business card full of the business information, and social media connections. And finally I pulled out the thank you cards. There are 5 cards in this set, that come individually wrapped along with a pairing envelope. I appreciate that these are separated and kept in individual plastic wrap, it makes storing cards much easier, and helps protect against any damage.

Renuzit Sensitive Scents | Social Insiders Review + Giveaway



Tell me this, who doesn't love to have their home smelling fantastic? I know I do. I like to make my home as inviting as possible. There are so many ways you can give your home a fresh smell, however sometimes these products can be a bit much. Many people have sensitive noses, and sometimes being in a area with a overpowering scent is almost just as bad as being in a area that stinks. Renuzit has answered the call to this problem, and has released their new Renuzit Sensitive Scents collection. 



Through the Social Insiders, I was able to get my hands on 3 different products from the new line. Below I will be sharing my thoughts with you about each product, and my experience with them so far.

Easter Gift Idea | Candy with a Twist - Chocolate Easter Bunny S'more Kit

Easter is coming right around the corner, so it is time to start thinking about what you are going to give that someone special. You could go with the stereotypical candy eggs, or chocolate bunny rabbits. But why not spice things up this year and give a super fun yet festive gift? The Chocolate Easter Bunny S'more Kit is the perfect gift for anyone young and old!

Candy with a Twist was kind enough to send me one of their S'more Kits so I could give it a review and sample it for myself!





Most of us are familiar with what a S'more is, however if you happen to live under a rock, a S'more is a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow sandwiched between 2 graham crackers. They are very popular with American kids, especially during the summer months when you can roast the marshmallows over a camp fire and create a yummy snack. However as I said, not just kids enjoy these treats, they are delicious no matter how old you are!

The kit arrived in the mail perfectly safe. No broken pieces at all which really surprised me. We all know how rough a packaged can be tossed around in the post. It came in a cute box, with a pink bow. Inside I could see the graham crackers, a chocolate bar and a HUGE marshmallow with a bunny printed on it. Talk about adorable! I opened the box, and set everything out on the kitchen table. Inside there were 4 graham crackers, a large piece of chocolate and of course the marshmallow. I initially thought that this kit would only make 1 S'more, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that they give you enough to make 2!

I took the graham crackers out and laid them on a plate. I took the chocolate bar, which had 6 equal portions, and split it in half, 3 pieces for each S'more. I then took the marshmallow and cut it in half, and put that on top of the chocolate. Next I put them in the microwave for about 15 seconds. The marshmallow had melted quite a bit, and began to heat up the chocolate as well. I immediately dug in. Oh. My. Goodness. Talk about childhood in a treat! This was so delicious! By far a perfect S'more! It did get a little messy, but that usually happens when you eat one of these babies! Finger licking good!





This definitely would make a perfect Easter gift! It tastes fantastic and is a perfect treat! It's the perfect size to put in a Easter basket, or just give it as it is!
