Prepping for Summer with items for Playdates, Spring Cleaning and House Guests

We were in Target just the other day and looking through the 1.00 to 3.00 bins and what did we find???

We found all 1.00 Dr. Seuss playing card decks for the kids we found erasers, pencils, stickers, sticker books, and bags to match the theme of the party. Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish things perfect for a child's party or summer play date with the kids. Newer items such as Finding Dory, Trolls were 3.00 but they are still new for kids. The standards such as  Elsa from Frozen, Batman, Stars Wars and also in the 1.00 bin and of course all of these items were authentic, Target only is allowed to sell licensed products from Disney and certain authors.

Even mini cans of play dough were .99 cents and dig in the back of aisles and what did we find authentic Hot Cars for .90 cents each and packs of 4 were 4.00, so if your kids are having play dates this summer bring along a gift bag of goodies one for your child and the other and watch them have loads of fun.

The total on everything…

The Beauty Spot : Clean Beauty

Were back!!!

Spring is here, spring is here! That is our mantra around here while we were once again shoveling snow!

But, we went a shopping!

We are trying as many all natural beauty products so here are our finds:

Skincare:
thecottagegreenhouse.com This is an 98 percent all natural brand that was part of the The View viewyourdeal.com segment Oprah Magazine Edition. We bought Blood Orange and Grapefruit body lotion, the scent is amazing and it is so moisturizing, there is a Orange and Honey Mask we snagged two, and a Cucumber and Honey Shower Gel, which rinses off so clean without drying.

Body care:
All natural lavender deodorant, we heard so much about the high levels of metals in our deodorant so we gave it a try and I must say it does do wonders. It smells very good and it beats out some of your higher end all natural deodorant products. We bought two at target.com and it 13.00 for two.

Perfume Oils:
This is the next major thing!

We have a floral patchouli from Mave and it was okay, scent di…

Beauty Spot: Clarins Review

So, I tried the full suite of skin care products from clarins.com. and this is what I found to be true about the product.

History:
Clarins was actually founded back in World War I by a French physician who use to treat injured soilders. The formula worked so well that it was used by French women for their beauty needs.


You may need this bit of trivia when you audition for Jeopardy, ya never know.

Back to the product review:

1. Cotton Seed Daily Face Wash:
I use this twice a day night and morning, and what I love about it is that it leaves my face soft without a residue, it is a natural softness and supple feeling that is great.

2.  Face Oil:
I was given a sample of their face oil in Blue Orchid and it was very light, and it healed a dry patch of my skin immediately, with out clogging my pores.

3. Extra- Firming Mask:
This was another sample and I put a little on and waited for 10 min. the results left my skin feeling great again. I did the mask twice a week as instructed and again the results w…
