Mother's Day Gift Guide Tervis Always full of Fun Cups Review


It's that time again and I am really excited to bring you another great Mother's Day Gift Guide filled with amazing gift idea's out there for your Mom. Are you ever stuck wondering if you got the right thing or not well worry no more. Check out all my gift idea's!!


We received these great cups from Tervis what is tervis you ask?? It's a company where they make all kinds of well made drinking cups. Where you can customize them the way you want them. 

Perfect for Mother's Day

Perfect for the Beach!



About Us:

Let’s take a little trip back in time. It’s 1946. Detroit. Engineers Frank Cotter and G. Howlett Davis hit on something big: they harness the natural insulating powers of air to create a permanently sealed, double-walled tumbler. Finally, a way to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. This outstanding innovation changed the drinkware industry forever. 
Combining the last three letters of each of their last names, Cotter and Davis dubbed their new brand “Tervis.” In the years to follow, they worked hard to refine and improve their designs. The original tall, cylindrical tumbler evolved into additional sizes and products. Today, Tervis offers eight tumbler sizes, plus hundreds of customizable designs, emblems and accessory combinations.

They even have cute ones for kid's

My daughter loved her Woodland Owl's Cup she was really excited for it too!!


The Donelly family purchased the Tervis product rights in the 1950s and incorporated the Tervis Tumbler Company in 1967. To this day, all Tervis drinkware is proudly made in America. More than 900 people are employed through this family-owned-and-operated business, headquartered in North Venice, Fla.




This is the perfect Mother's Day gift does your Mom like something special?? A certain animal, maybe a certain sports team, or maybe she just likes a little wine in her life?? Whatever the case may be I know Tervis has that for you!! Just take a look and browse through their site to check them out!!

Lips-n-Eyes "Ultimate Cosmetics Organizer" Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I am super excited to tell you about a item I was so lucky to try!!!  It is the Lips-n-Eyes Cosmetic Organizer this organizer is amazing it holds my everyday makeup stuff. Now I am a makeup junkie so it doesn't hold all of my makeup but.. it holds what I need to use for the day. I store it in the bathroom on the counter right where I get ready in the morning. Just make sure that for the deeper compartments to put a piece of cotton or something so it doesn't fall all the way in the hole so you can't get it out.








Lips-n-Eyes Organizers may be placed on the counter as shown, or can be wall mounted. The two parts may also be used separately. To create more storage space, you can use the main body on your counter and hang the tray with side pockets on the wall. The tray may be used to hold personal hygiene items or pedicure tools.  It's also perfect for men's toiletries. 

Tricks and Tips

  • If you have an especially short item that wants to slide down into a tube and disappear, place one or more cotton balls into the bottom of that compartment to adjust the depth.
  • Some Lips-n-Eyes™ users who don't need a clock, remove it and use the large compartment to store Q-Tips or cotton balls.
  • Most women love the clock and you can even hide small valuables in the "secret compartment" behind it.

D is for Django Jones Cd Review


Is everyone excited for the release of D is for Django this great cd has a ton of songs a mix of pop and folk music. That is sure to get your attention. This album comes with 2 discs and has 27 great songs. My children love this album and kept wanting to listen to it. They have catchy songs that will find anyone singing along too. These cd's are geared toward children ages 4-9 and the run time of this album is 53 min.



D is for Django (named for Doris's charismatic Chihuahua mix) is programmed so that energetic tunes comprise the first half of the album, with softer songs and lullabies making up the second half.  "We wanted parents to be able to use the second half to help calm their kids down so they can drift off to sleep," explains Nate.  The songs range from educational ("Bones" and "Counterpoint") to food-oriented ("Breakfast" and "Popcorn") to self-empowerment ("Smallest Breed" and "All That I See"), and the lulabies are capped by a stunning rendition of a traditional kundalini mantra ("Long Time Sun").  Listeners get a "behind the scenes" chance to meet Doris, JJ, Nate, and even Django via the brief spoken intros interspersed between songs.



The album kicks off with "All That I See," a pop song about seeing people for the beautiful beings they are, which showcases Doris Muramatsu's glorious voice backed up by gorgeous harmonies from herDjango Jones colleagues layered over a mesmerizing, rhythmic ostinato.  The musical motion is seconded with other highlights like "P-O-P," a fun, rockin' ode to the most popular "popped" movie treat, "Bigfoot," an unlikely romantic ballad that offers a tip of the musical hat to the Shangri-Las' teen melodrama from the '60s, "Leader of the Pack," and "Counterpoint," a brainy tune that demonstrates, in a most engaging fashion, just exactly what counterpoint in music is.  Kids will have fun working out the melodic puzzle as they follow along with Nate's melody, Doris's melody, or JJ's melody and see how it all fits together. 

We really love this album and hope you enjoy it too. Ps. The release is today don't miss out!!!
