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!!

Don't forget to "like" Pure Upscale on Facebook!!

I had a awesome time doing this review and giveaway, as well as my kids and thier friends!

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
