APAVIATA - Water Bottle Product Review

The majority of the water bottles in our house are either stainless steel or glass. Many people probably wonder how we manage to carry glass bottles around. Luckily there are a number of fantastic products on the market that allow you to carry your water around in glass in a very safe manner. One of the latest bottles I have tried out is by Apaviata. And I must say, this is probably one of the cutest and safest glass bottles I have toted around.

I like glass because there is no real concern of chemicals leeching into our water that we are drinking. Sure they have taken BPA off the market but the replacement for BPA is showing to have similar effects as its original counterpart. To be safe we stick we healthier bottles. I tend to keep stainless around for my son because there is no worry of breakage but for me I like the taste out of a glass bottle. Apaviata is nice because your bottle comes with this cute little fabric sleeve that you easily slip onto your bottle. I received the gray color to try out and it reminds me almost of a sweatshirt. I really think its adorable. It also has a carrying strap and clip on it. You can purchase a number of different colors though. The cap is nice and tight as well.

The mouth of the bottle is nice and wide so if you want to get healthy and throw some fruit in there you can do that as well. The sleeve can be removed so you can wash the bottle when needed.

To purchase the bottle I currently have and love (I've been using it every day since I received it) you can shop Amazon.

Momentum: Workout Friendly Motivational Jewelry Product Review

My schedule is usually pretty active between taking care of our almost seven year old son, blogging, running my own freelance business, working out, running errands, taking care of the home....pfwhew! Now I know why I'm so tired all the time! Anyway, when I know I'm going to have a very active day that includes getting a workout in I always get dressed in the morning in some sort of workout gear. Not only is it comfortable but it prevents me from having to change when its time to hop on the treadmill. What I don't like though is that it is pretty hard to accessorize a workout outfit. I don't like to put on my nice jewelry but would love to have something else on these days. I recently was contacted by Momentum which is a line of workout inspired jewelry items that are not only cute but they are also inspirational. 

I received a black cord bracelet with the words Live Fearlessly on a silver disk attached to the cord. The cord itself wraps around my wrist probably about six times. The material of the cord is super soft and it doesn't squeeze, slip or chafe. I love it because it looks cute but its highly functional if you're going to be getting a workout in or heading to a yoga class.

Spherovelo Balance Bike- Product Review

I remember when my little guy wasn't yet big enough to hop on a bike of any sort but wanted to get out and play anyway. This product from Sphervelo would have been perfect. This ride on toy is the only one in the world that is designed to help children in the 1-2 age bracket make early connections between their senses and their motor system. Its a lot different than that little three in one ride on toy we had seven years ago!

I love the construction of the Spherovelo. The handle is made out of wood and the 'bike' portion is a bright, shiny plastic. This product plays like a ride on toy but thinks like a bike. You can use it both inside and outside and your little one will be scooting around on it before you know it.

Image thanks to

The child using the Spherovelo is completely safe on this product unlike with a regular bike or tricycle. It is very low to the ground and it sits on two spheres. Your child won't tip thanks to the design of the ride on toy. The wheels are very ball-like which helps keep it safe.

Eylure - Eyelash Product Review

I have to admit before I received these products to sample I had never used fake eyelashes before. I guess I just never really had the need as I have pretty thick lashes. I was excited to try them out though because I know false lashes are really big right now and I am always eager to try the latest and greatest products! So on went a set of Eylure lashes and I instantly fell in love with them!

Eylure is a well respected brand that has worked with all kinds of stars from Elizabeth Taylor to Kay Perry. A wide range of lashes are available from Eylure so don't think you have to stick with a really thick, fake looking set. There are short sets, thinner sets or you can go for big, bold eyelashes. There's a product for everyone's preference.

The longest and fullest lashes that are available from Eylure are the Dramatic lashes set. This is a texturized look that is very bold. You can go with the Naturals lashes for a more basic, everyday look.

Each set of lashes is reusable and they come with their own adhesive. A starter kit comes with an extra set of lashes to practice with and two full packs of glue. An applicator and a full pair of lashes also come in each package.

Each set of Eylure lashes retails from $4.99 to $6.99 and you can find these products at Target, Kohls and Ulta Beauty.

Hard ♥ Candy - Eyeshadow Product Review

Make up is so fun to play around with. I of course have my basics that I use almost daily and love (Foundation, liquid makeup, blush, etc.) but then its nice to have some fun eye shadows to experiment with or match to your outfit of the day. I recently got to try out some awesome shadow collections for Hard Candy. Their new Unique & Intense Eye Shadow Collection is named appropriately. You get an array of neutral and bold shades all in one compact.

I got to try out the Guilty Pleasure set as well as the Birthday Suit set. Guilty Pleasure has some sparkle to it so its nice for evenings out and such. I like Birthday Suit for everyday use. Each eye shadow collection comes with fashion forward colors inside of a fabric mirror compact. Each set has shades of matte, shimmer, glitter and metallic.

You can find these new Hard Candy eye shadow sets exclusively at Walmart. Each set retails at just $6.00 which is a steal if you consider what you're getting. Ten shades of eye color at this price is unheard of.

I found that the shadows stayed in place nicely and didn't wear off as the day progressed. This was true for even the really dark shades which often smudge or wear off.
