Softy Soaker Review & *Giveaway* Ends 09/09

I can't tell you how excited it makes me when my kids find something to do that they actually enjoy and don't find "boring"!  The Aurora World Inc. sent me the "Softy Soakers" to review, and let me tell you it was a HIT with my two little ones.  


How Does This Work?

Soo cute and simple.  I filled a bowl of water, and had my kids help me put the turtle soaker in the bowl for about 40 seconds.  After that you dry the softy soaker with a towel.  That's it!  You instantly have a cute stuffed animal.  As my kids said "It's like Magic, Mom!"  After time the softy soaker will return to it's original form, and then your kids get to see the magic all over again!  

I wasn't sure if my 7 year old son would think this was too "little" for him.  But he surprised me, with his "oohs" and "ahhs".  I have bought other products from stores that take days to reach their full size and even at that you can't play with them..because the slime on the exterior.  The softy soakers take only 40 seconds to reach about a 8 inch "stuffed" animal.  

The Softy Soaker Collection has 6 adorable sea animals at $10 each

So far I have LOVED every Aurora product!  Excellent quality, and my kids fall in love quickly with the products.

Kanshi Instantly Refreshing Foot Spray *Review*!

They often tell you having children changes everything.  Most of us don't really understand or internalize this wisdom.  But it's true.  Of course having children is the most wonderful privilege and blessing from the Lord.  Things change.  Date nights dwindle.  Backpacking across the Himalayas -out. (Okay maybe that wasn't on my list).  And as a mother we tend to put ourselves last.  Bye bye spas.  We are lucky to get our showers everyday.

So you can imagine that anytime I find a product that brings convenience and luxury to me, I nearly jump for joy.

What has me so excited?  

Kanshi Instantly Refreshing Foot Spray!

Retail $10

First I'll tell you some of the facts about Kanshi Instantly Refreshing Foot Spray...

What makes this Formula so special?

* Triple Mint which consists of Peppermint, Spearmint, and Cornmint.  This combination causes a natural cooling to your tired feet.

*  Lemon Myrtle acts a natural anti microbial and anti-fungal.  This also provides an odor-cutting solution for feet that are shoe bound all day or sweaty from the gym.

*  Horse Chestnut is used to help improve circulation.

How Do You Use the Kanshi Foot Spray?

So Simple!!!  You can use the little convenient 4oz. bottle anytime.  Whether it's after the gym, or at work, or when you get home from a long day.  Spray your feet with the Kanshi Foot Spray, let it dry.  And that is it!

What Did I Think?

For the last couple of months I have been making it a point to exercise everyday, a couple of times a day.  No one wants to have stinky sweaty feet anytime.  What I love about the Kanshi Foot Spray is that after I exercise, I just have to peel off my socks, spray my feet let them dry.  My feet start thanking me immediately as they feel dry and refreshed.  I love the minty, lemony sent of the spray.  The consistency is similar to that of water.. which speaks to it's natural ingredients.

Last night my feet hurt so bad after walking on the treadmill for 66 minutes.  After using the spray.. my feet just felt better.  Of course I can't feel the "improving of the circulation" from the Horse Chestnut ingredient but knowing that it promotes good circulation is awesome. Good circulation improves our health overall.

This product is not gender specific.  And that makes me happy!  I love when my husband is willing to try a new product that I know will make him feel better!  I think the bottle alone being a brown color made him feel a little less feminine!  After his hard day at work, and his long drive home, using the Kanshi spray is a nice option for him to relieve his aching feet, and foot odor.

Kanshi Instantly Refreshing Foot Spray is my mini foot spa!  As a Mom, I can make time for this spa everyday, which makes me LOVE this product.  And the price is perfect at $10 a bottle.

Thanks to Repechage for introducing me to the naturally beautiful Kanshi line.  A natural paraben-free aromatherapy spa line developed by a skincare expert, Lydia Sarfati.

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
