Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts
Any one that knows my daughter knows that she loves clothes (and shoes and purses) just a much as her mommy.  She has an entire closet full of shirts and dresses and two full size dressers full of pants, shorty shorts, skirty skirts, and pajamas.  She has an overflowing drawer dedicated just for her PJ's but only wears a few of them on a regular basis. 

She has three pairs of favorite pajamas, one is Dora, one is Princess and one is her Halo Comfortluxe jammies.  The first two she only wears when it is warm because they are shorts (and I do not want her to get cold while sleeping) but the Halo Comfortluxe pajamas she wears year round even though they are long sleeve and full length bottoms.  One would think that she would get too hot in full length/sleeve in the 80+ degree summer but she will not give them up. She absolutely loves her Newnicorn (unicorn to the rest of us!) PJ's.  

I find that even in hot weather the Halo Comfortluxe pajamas keep her body at an even temperature.  This is especially important for her since she is one of those HOT sleepers and she insists on sleeping under her giant Dora blanket even when it is sweltering in her room.  When she sleeps, her body temperature rises and she turns into a little furnace, I love to snuggle her but yikes she gets hot and sweaty.  The Comfortluxe pajamas, wick away the moisture and help keep her skin dry and cool.

HALO ComfortLuxe™ Sleepwear can be purchased at the following places:

OrganicaPure Natural Skin Care - Review and Giveaway


OrganicaPure Natural Skin Care 


I love skin care products, I always have but my selections changed drastically when I had my daughter 2 1/2 years ago (OMG!  I can hardly believe she is 2 1/2 already!).  While I was pregnant (I was one of those crazy first time parents that had to research everything pregnancy and baby related), I read many articles on how baby skin is more absorbent and sensitive than adult skin and how the chemicals in regular skin care products can negatively affect them.  I made a promise to myself to search out more natural and organic alternatives to my skin care products and tossed almost all of my old lotions, makeup and perfumes. 

About OrganicaPure
OrganicaPure is a skincare line born from the obsessive and constant pursuit for purity. Thier products harness the power of three simple, yet powerful ingredients: Cocoa, Honey, and Aloe Vera. OrganicaPure utilizes the knowledge and research conducted on the benefits of these three ingredients and combines them to produce high quality skincare products.

The Organic Mission
Our mission is to deliver skincare in its purest form. We are proud to return skincare to what it should be - using science to simplify and Earth to beautify. Organica Pure is compromised to develop their products based on organic principles, using only suppliers with an organic process of harvesting on the main ingredients. To develop high quality skin and hair care products using natural ingredients as our foundation.
Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts
I sampled two products from OrganicaPure and they were both wonderful. I have used many types of lotions in the past and found some of them to be more drying than moisturizing to my skin, that was not the case with either OrganicaPure lotions. 


The first product that I tested was OrganicaPure's delectable smelling Cocoa & Honey Anti-Stretch Mark Lotion.  Let me just make things clear to any family members that might be reading this, No I am not pregnant nor am I trying to get pregnant.  OK, now that that is out of the way I can get back to my review.  Since I am not pregnant and luckily did not get any stretchmarks from my first and only pregnancy, I can not comment on how well the lotion did in regards to reducing the appearance of stretchmarks but I can tell you that it moisturized extremely well and did not leave a greasy feeling on my skin after application.  The product descriptions says that it will "reduce the look of stretch marks, scars, and minor imperfections."  I plan on using this on a few minor scars left from a knee surgery that I had a few years ago to see if it will lighten their appearance but mostly I love it for the smell.  I practically wanted to take a bite of my own arm, it smelled so good.  All chocolaty with a hint of Mint, YUM!!!!

 The second product that  I reviewed was the OrganicaPure Aloe Vera & Honey Organic Body Lotion.  While I would have liked the honey scent to be a bit stronger, I still liked it very much.  It made an excellent after sun lotion and was very soothing on the skin.  The lotion left no oily residue on my skin and absorbed fully.  Did you know that both Aloe and Honey act as anti-agers?  I recently found my first wrinkles, maybe they have been there and I pretended not to notice but now they are undeniable. (the things we go through for our children, I am sure she is aging me prematurely!).  Well now that I know aloe and honey are anti-agers, I will be bathing in this lotion regularly to stave off any new wrinkles (think that it will help with gray hair, I am sure it will be here soon since my daughter is 2 1/2 going on 16 and sassy as all get out!)

Overall, I really enjoyed being introduced to the OrganicaPure line of products and look forward to using them more.  The products that I am interested in trying out now are the Organic Body Wash and the Bath Salts.

Reading Is Fun! (Sponsored Giveaway!)


Reading is Fun!

My daughter is all about reading. We read during the day, at night before bed, in the car, and she even has a stash of books in the bathroom to read.

We started a reading routine early on and it seems to have developed into a love of reading for not only my daughter but for myself as well. Our reading time is very important and special to us.

Right now my daughter is going through a phase where she wants to be independent and do everything herself and our reading time is no different. She loves to "read" to her daddy and me. She starts off all of her stories with "Once Upon a Time" (it is sooooo cute!) Then she tells the story based on what she sees in the pictures or what she remembers from times that I have read the books to her. It is actually pretty amazing how much she remembers. Sometimes when she does not know what to say, she makes up her own words (which oddly sounds a lot like the minions from Despicable Me, her favorite movie).
 

Tell me what your kids are reading this summer for a chance to win a Summer Reading Prize Pack from the Children’s Book-of-the-Month Club!

- Grand Prize:Pottery Barn Kids’ reading chair and a Marc Jacobs Nylon Tote (for mom!)

- 5 First Prizes: Personalized Pottery Barn Kids’ Beach Tote

EXTRA ENTRY:
- Children’s Book-of-the-Month is now featuring the My Summer Reading Series! Kids receive 2 great books at their door each month all summer. $6.99 a book PLUS a free $25 Restaurant.com gift card!

Check out the different book series, find a book you love and tell us the book title in the conversation for an extra entry in the contest!



This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Children's Book-of-the-Month Club. The opinions and text are all mine. Contest runs June 28 - July 22, 2011. A random winner will be announced July 27, 2011. Official Rules
