Be sure to check out all the available designs on Amazon by clicking here. I received the sheet above. These tattoos were very easy to apply and I loved the outcome. My only complaint was that the tattoo's started flaking shortly after being applied. I think it would be best to apply these to locations which do not experience a lot of movement. Also, I think with it being winter, my skin is much more dry. These would be a great summer accessory and I can't wait to try them again!

Now for the giveaway!! This giveaway will run from 1/31/15 to 2/10/15 11:59PM EST, US only. Once a winner is selected, I will contact them via the email provided and they will have 24 hours to respond before a new winner is chosen.

DOLCE Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron by Xtava Review

I was impressed by the DOLCE Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron made by Xtava. Thanks to the sophisticated microprocessor system and LCD control display, this Hair Straightener easily adjusts to anyone's desired settings. It reaches temperatures up to 430°F, allowing even the most unruly hair to be tamed.  
Additional product details:
  • ELEGANT AND POWERFUL - With its Sleek design and fast heating ceramic plates this flat iron offers a combination of elegance, power and precision reaching temperatures of up to 430 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • SOPHISTICATED MICROPROCESSOR - Thanks to its highly sophisticated microprocessor and its LCD control display, the new Xtava Dolce allows you to personalize your settings to your desired style and hair type.
  • LCD SCREEN - Achieve complete control of the heat function with the stylish blue LCD screen and convenient buttons on the side of the appliance.
  • SAFETY - The Dolce flat iron is equipped with an automatic safety mechanism that will turn off the device when not in use. The device also offers a digital locking function to prevent any tampering with the unit.

I have long, curly hair which can be a pain to deal with. This straightener managed to tackle the frizz and leave me with smooth straight hair. I was impressed with the outcome. The straightener took less than a minute to heat up, but did end up taking me about an 1.5 hours to finish straightening my hair. As you can see, my hair is longer than average so this can be expected. I love the purple and black colors of the straightener and the sleek design with the LCD display. The flat iron is also equipped with a 360° rotating cord, to ensure that you never end up with a tangled cord. This was very convenient. Another added bonus is that it comes with a travel case lined with heat resistant material. The DOLCE Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron by Xtava is easily adjustable, making it the perfect fit for anyone's hair type.

Silicone Baking Cups Review #TheSimpleBaker

These Baking Cups by The Simple Baker are my new favorite baking addition! They make the process much simpler.
A little bit about them:
  • The set comes with 6 vibrant colors - pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple - a total of 24. They are heat resistant up to 475°. Each cup measures 2-5/8 inch diameter x 1.25 inch tall and holds 2.5 fluid ounces- a standard cupcake size. 
  • They are environmentally friendly. These reusable silicone baking cups are BPA Free and made with eco-friendly silicone. You no longer need to buy paper wrappers to throw out after every use.
  • Easy to use and clean! They are made of 100% Pure food grade silicone, which is stain resistant and completely dishwasher safe.
  •  No need to use a muffin tray, just place these cups straight onto a baking sheet. 

I decided to test these out by making German Chocolate cupcakes. Prior to starting, I made sure to wash the cups to get the plasticy smell out of them. This was simple- I just threw them on the top shelf of the dishwasher. Once they were clean and dry I set them up on a baking tray. What is great about these is that there is no need to have special muffin tins. The silicone is sturdy and holds up fine even when the raw batter is poured into them. After they were done baking, the cupcakes were very easy to pop out of the liners and left little residue on them. I love that these are reusable and dishwasher safe. I can definitely say I will be using these alot in the future!

The Survive Outdoors Longer® Escape™ Bivvy is nothing less than a revolution in backcountry shelters. The complaint with most ultra-light emergency shelters is the same: condensation builds up inside as you get warm, leaving your clothes soaking wet. With the Escape™ Bivvy, condensation is no longer an issue, and you never again have to choose between staying dry and staying warm. The proprietary fabric lets moisture escape at the same time that it keeps rain, snow, and wind on the outside – all while reflecting your body heat back to you. Waterproof seams plus a drawstring hood closure and side zip mean you can seal out the elements entirely or use the bivvy like a traditional sleeping bag, and the high-visibility orange exterior makes it easy for rescuers to spot you even in areas with high tree cover.

Made with Care
We make Farmer's Bounty® Dog Food one batch at a time, to help retain the nutrients, goodness and flavor. Our food is made very differently than all other dry dog foods. The cage-free chicken we use is sourced within 100 miles of our plant and is prepared soon after harvest, allowing your dog to taste the freshness. We then add high-quality steam rolled oats to help supply energy and soluble fiber. We accent our recipe with a bounty of other wholesome ingredients to help ensure your dog gets 100% complete and balanced nutrition to help him thrive. We do not use the same intense heat and high pressure processing as most other dry dog foods. Instead, we take extreme care in the handling and cooking of our ingredients, in order to help protect amino acids from heat damage. This takes knowledge as well as patience, but making great dog food can’t be rushed. We truly believe that after feeding Farmer's Bounty® Dog Food for just a few weeks, you’ll see the difference in the way your dog looks and feels, from coat to muscle tone, from alert eyes to overall vitality.
