Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets Review and Giveaway

I received anothor wonderful Purex product to try out. This time it is the Purex Crystals dryer sheets. I reviewed the Purex crystal launder enchancers and have been using them ever since
These are the new addition to the Purex Crstal family. They now have dryer sheets available! This is great since I always use dryer sheets As soon as I opened the package I could smell the fresh scent of fresh spring waters.  I have a large family so I always have laundry to do. I decided to try out the dryer sheets. I could smell from living room they were working. The scent from them being in the dryer put a fresh lovely scent all the way to the other room. I know these are a keeper! My clothes smell fantastic even days later. I also use them in storage containers for clothes I am storing to keep them fresh smelling. Another huge bonus of the Purex Crystals dryer sheets is they also repel pet hair and lint. I have a dog so I know how much of a benefit that can be. Also leaving sheets in closets and other places int he house is a great way to keep a fresh scent. The Purex crystal dryer sheets also come in a scent called lavender blossom. I can't wait to head to my grocery store and buy them!!

Purex is running a $500 prize giveaway here. Also I am able to run a giveaway for a free box of Purex crystals for my readers. Enter Below:

Purex No Sort Detergent Review and Giveaway

I am a huge fan of Purex so I love when they come out with new products. I feel that they are a great value for the money and their detergents work really well. I often don't have time to sort since I am a family of seven and work so laundry is always something I am looking for a shortcut for. Not having to sort my clothes to me is one of the best shortcuts possible for laundry.



 The new Purex no sort includes special anti-color transfer technology. This traps loose dyes and reduces color bleeding accidents. The fresh scent is a huge plus and let me tell you it smells amazing!I put it to the test and put in my darks and regular color clothes as well as some whites too and it worked great.  My whites came out crispy white and there was no transfer from the dark clothes. Check it out at your local supercenters, grocery stores, and drug stores. The value is there for the price.

Purex is running a promo to win 1,000 and a year worth of Purex you can enter here:
Also they kindly sent me a coupon for a free product to share with a reader so enter the giveaway below!

Vollie Austin Toffee Review and Giveaway

I was thrilled when I got a chance to sample out a new Toffee company. I love toffee and so does my whole family so this was a real treat! I especially love small brands and supporting local business. They also cook using fresh and local ingredients so that is a bonus as well knowing they support local establishments. The toffee is made in small batches right at the company location in Oregon. They currently offer four flavors: No Nut Vanilla Bean, Coffee Almond, Oregon Hazelnut, and Original Recipe. They have just opened up an online store to expand their reach to online orders. This way everyone can enjoy the goodies they make. Check out their website: vollieaustintoffee.com
This would made an excellent mother's or father's day present!


I choose the coffee almond toffee to sample. I wanted to try all the falvors since they sounds so yummy but I decided coffee almond would be my sample flavor. Well let me tell you this flavor did not let me down. The toffee was amazing. I seriously could not put it down. You could taste the freshness and it was delicious.

As you can see in my picture the freshness and detail is there. You could taste the almonds and coffee flavor so well. The chocolate cover is such a delicious added touch. I can not wait to order some more myself and try out the other flavors since I know they will be just as delicious.
As you can see from the nutriton label they only use quality ingredients that are made in small batches.It really doesn't get much better than this! Vollie Austin was so nice and allowed me to run a giveaway for my wonderful readers to try out a can of their toffee. You can pick your own flavor:No Nut Vanilla Bean, Coffee Almond, Oregon Hazelnut,or Original Recipe. Just enter the giveaway below. If you win you will be contacted to get your information and flavor:)

What's It Like, Living Green? Kids Teaching Kids, by the Way They Live Review and Giveaway

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


As a mom of 5 young children who loves organic gardening and living green I was ecstatic to review the book by Jill Ammon Vanderwood, What's It Like, Living Green. This book is a great informative book to help get your kid's involved in green living. I sat down with my kid's and read the book together with them. The book starts out with a fun quiz to see just how "green" you really are! My kids each took their own and had fun with the quiz. We talked about each section and discussed how we could incorporate it in our lives. I love that the book is into sections so you can really focus on one at a time which helps the kid's really get an idea for green living.My kid's favorite section was about the kids saving the rainforest. They have always been intrigued by the rainforest and thought it was great other kids were also into the rainforest. Aside from my children getting so much fun information I also enjoyed the book and learned a few new things myself.


The book is available on Amazon. The book has received a Best Books award winner from USA book news as well as an indie excellence winner book award. The back says ages 9 and up but even my younger ones enjoyed the book and talking about the concepts we learned.  One of my lucky readers can win a copy of the book as well. This is such a great book so I encourage everyone to enter! This is a great read for summer vacation and would be fun to discuss and do what you can to help your kids become green.
