Pure Upscale - Leopard Mesh Dress by DreamGirls

I know what you are thinking.... "Did this girl really review some stripper clothes?"
In all reality, I did.

Upscale Stripper isn't just for exotic dancers. They have a huge selection of intimates, club wear, costumes, shoes and accessories. I loved browsing their online shop. I found some really cute, but sexy nightgowns that I know my hubby would enjoy! I don't know about you, but I dress up for Halloween, as well as costume parties through the year. I am excited to know that they have costumes available all year round. Upscale Stripper also has a wide array of shoes for any night out, clubbing, prom, Halloween or just cause!!

I reviewed the Sexy polka dot mesh halter babydoll set, above. I must say, I was scared to be recieving this in the mail! It takes a million different bras to find the right one! When I recieved this, I knew, there wouldn't be a problem. Most clothing items at Pure Upscale are, "One size fits most". The mesh material was very stretchy. It was slender enough to be sexy, but a loud me to move and breathe. The Mesh halter was very well manufactured. I did not see any imperfections or jumped threads. I was very happy with this dress.

Please take some time to go to Upscale stripper and view their awesome intimates. Your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, or hubby will appearicate this purchase!!

Below is the Sexy Leopard Print Stretch Mesh mini dress set. I have to admit... I wanted to keep this for myself! Instead we are going to have a giveaway! Yay!!

Gutzy Gear is a company founded by two cousins, Lauren and Wendy. They decided to created a childrens product that would help young imaginative minds express themselves.
The idea for Gutzy Gear actually came from a old golf sweater. The sweater was covered in patches that was collected during golf outtings.
Seeing how, The sweater was so unique with the patches, it gave the two the incredible idea to create Gutzy Gear!!!

Gutzy Gear gave me the oppurtunity to have a Gutzy Gear Party for my children and their friends. The kids had a blast learning about Gutzy Gear. We played Gutzy Bingo, Create-a Gutzy, and Gutzy Dominoes! The kids also enjoyed having Gutzy snacks and drinks.

Nearing the end of the party, all the kiddos got to recieve thier own pair of Gutzy Gear Backpack Straps. Then the frenzy began....

The children loved being able to pick, share, and trade for the right patches that fit their style.
They were very interested in finding out how to get more!!!

Gutzy Gear was ever so kind to send a 3 extra pairs of straps and  3 extra patch sets!!

Healthy Hair Giveaway!

Welcome to the Healthy Hair Giveaway sponsored by Keranique

hosted by Iowa Mom and Mom Blog Society

Prize Package Includes ($209 in fabulous professional haircare products):
Keranique Volumizing Shampoo
Keranique Volumizing Conditioner
Keranique 8-Day Intensive Scalp Treatment
Professional Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron


Boot Camp for Your Scalp

Keranique Introduces New 8 Day Intensive Scalp Treatment to Address Seasonal & Stress Related Hair Thinning

Environmental changes including the transitioning of seasons can do a number on the skin. We prep and cleanse with scrubs, moisturizers and a variety of skin treatments - but what about our scalp?Fluctuations in temperature, excessive styling and stress all attribute to thinning hair. According to, a major development as of late has been the application of skin care ingredients to hair care.Peptides, for example, provide extra conditioning and make the hair shaft stronger by depositing a shield on the shaft.

Keranique’s new 8-Day Intensive Scalp Treatment uses the science of skin care to help stimulate and rejuvenate the scalp, creating healthy conditions for hair to grow. This intensive, leave-in scalp therapy features the highest recommended concentration of a clinical strength, patented peptide to help strengthen and “anchor” the hair at the root. It also helps reduce DHT on the scalp, stimulate skin proteins, and reduce scalp irritation to support thicker, healthier hair as it grows. Results can be seen in just 8 days.


The Power of Peppermint

Peppermint oil has been used for centuries to cure a number of medical issues including stomach ailments, cold symptoms and headaches. This powerful ingredient also helps to enhance hair and scalp health.

Keranique has incorporated peppermint oil into its new volumizing shampoo and conditioner. The ingredient works to gently moisturize the hair shaft while stimulating micro-circulation and new hair growth. A tingling, cooling effect occurs when peppermint oil is massaged into the scalp, helping to balance the PH levels and banish oily hair – and the fresh, invigorating scent of peppermint will last all day!

The Keranique Volumizing Shampoo gently deep cleans, stimulates/nourishes the scalp and follicles, and removes oil/build up that drags hair down. The shampoo is free of sulfates, parabens and synthetic fragrances. $35

The Keranique Volumizing Conditioner coats the hair to make each strand thicker and protects fine hair with a unique cream-gel formula that doesn’t weigh it down. It is also formulated to help hydrate and stimulate micro-circulation around the hair follicle to help nourish the hair. The conditioner’s blend of technologies penetrates each hair shaft to help smooth cuticles, mend split ends and decrease hair breakage. $35


Keranique products are available now via and

Fushion Tey Giveaway!

This Review & Giveaway is done by Colleen at My Vegan Gluten Free Life

Our Beautiful Packaging


I absolutely adore, love, am fond of, fancy, like and have a huge passion for TEA! Get the picture? I like the smell of coffee but can't stomach the taste. But Tea....oh it is my passion. I have had to switch to decaffeinated teas because the caffeine will give me cardiac arrhythmias and that doesn't feel too very good. Some oolong teas I can handle and some light green teas as well and thank goodness because their flavors are divine.

Fusion Teas has a fabulous selection of teas such as black, green, oolong and more including Tulsi, Rooibos and Herbal. They were kind enough to let me sample a few of their teas.

I was sent 4 looseleaf tea variety collections to sample: Acai Berry Blend Oolong Collection, Super Fruit Sencha Green Tea Collection, Lemon Rose Bud Oolong Collection (pictured below) and Chamomile Vanilla Bean Herbal Collection.


Upon opening the package, the Super Fruit Sencha smelled very much of a raspberry/blackberry blend and I wasn't sure I would enjoy it since the fruit smell was very strong but after brewing it the fruit flavor was slight and the green tea flavor very light. It was very refreshing and would be delightful cold as well I would think.

The Acai Berry Blend smelled like a musky currant when I opened the package but I loved the flavor. I thought the muskiness would be overpowering but it was wonderful without being heavy and the oolong came through with a slight tang. I would use this tea for everyday drinking.

The Lemon Rose Bud definately had the fragrence of roses upon opening but the flavor was very faintly rose with the oolong flavor very light and a thought of ginger? It was a delightful tea and I would also think this would be great iced.

The Chamomile Vanilla Bean immediately filled the air with the aroma of vanilla upon opening and the chammomile flowers looked lovely amidst the other ingredients. You definately need a strainer for this one to drink since it has lots of floating ingredients. Mmmmmm this was lovely. I can envision this tea before bedtime or curling up with a book or in front of a fire or for a tummy ache! It is sweet, flowery, yet distinctly vanilla with a hint of licorice.

Do I have a favorite of the group? I love them all! But I could drink the Acai Berry Blend daily anytime! I think Fusion Teas has a lifelong customer here!

Fusion Teas is offering the following BrewT along with your choice of 2 Fusion Tea blends (3 onz each).

Info from Sponsor on BrewT:

The BrewT infuser is a revolutionary method for making your preferred hot or cold beverage through the ingenious combination of properly steeping premium loose leaf tea with fresh hot water. This patented process for making exceptional tea is so popular with people on the go, college students and office professionals that it allows for a quality drink within minutes of mixing the ingredients together. The BrewT is brilliant.

Using the BrewT

The infuser is equipped with a unique shut-off valve invention that controls the flow of liquid from the Teaze to the cup through a specially designed filtration screen intended to prevent large particles from reaching your cup. With the placement of the brewer on the cup, the weight of the unit will open the valve and allow the infused liquid to flow into the cup. Once lifted from the cup, the plate falls and forces the shut-off valve to close the infuser opening thus preventing further flow. The impact resistant high grade polymer used in the manufacture of the BrewT allows for safe and easy use for its intended purpose.


Fusion Teas also have other wonderful gift sets you can purchase.

This Giveaway is open to US only and begins 7/28/2012 at 12:01 am EST and ends 8/11/2012 at 12:01 am EST
