Successful Philanthropy Review

Are you looking for a gift for the IMPOSSIBLE person to buy for? I was stuck on what to get my brother for the holidays. He has basically everything he wants, and what do you get the person that has everything?

We received Successful Philanthropy to review on MamaBreak and we are loving this book. We loved the inspirational tone in the book, but it also gives some really practical advice.

What makes this book perfect is that it is perfect gift for someone who has everything-- it teaches them how to give back to the world around them, and there is no greater gift than the gift of giving. We are making a gift with this book extra special by including a donation in the person's name to a charity!

Softsoap for the Holidays

Well, the holiday season is upon us, as is colder weather! I know my skin has been incredibly dry since the air has gotten colder!

I am loving these new body washes from Softsoap! They contain oil which is so helpful when you have dry skin! The wash has never left a residue on my skin, but my skin looks and feels so much softer! And the smell is incredible!

The best part? Softsoap can be found at many retailers near you, and are well priced! They are the perfect item to add to a gift basket for almost everyone on your gift list this holiday season!

It's Cold Outside-- Time to Get Nasal Relief

Have the stuffy noses hit your house yet? I know they have hit mine! Wow! It is so hard to remind the kids to blow their noses. Saline is a MUST have product in our home, and Simply Saline is our go to product. When they asked us to review, we knew we had to tell all our mama readers all about them.

Simply Saline is easy to use on even the tiniest of noses. Before I had kids, I didn't realize that blowing one's nose is actually a SKILL that needs to be learned. Simply Saline keeps those noses from getting dry, so less runny noses all season long.

I love these swabs. My youngest hates things being squirted up her nose, she these swabs are the perfect solution. They are also great for the really, really tiny noses!

Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Line

It's unfortunately about that time of the year again. Time for itchy heads. If you are anything like me, you freak out at the first mention of head lice! I am thrilled to be able to partner with Fairy Tales, because it truly is one of my go to mom products.

I constantly hear from people that there is no way to prevent head lice. Let me tell you right now that it is NOT TRUE. Did you know that Rosemary Repel Shampoo and Conditioning Spray were shown to be 96% effective at repelling lice when used together. 96%!!!

We use Fairy Tale every day in our house. If someone takes a shower or a bath, it is Fairy Tales they use on their heads. ALWAYS. It is a mild shampoo and conditioner, and the kids actually love it.

When there is an actual outbreak at their school, I just spray them down with hairspray or use the hair gel before school. They wash their hair about every 2-3 days after school (remember-- lice like clean hair). The gel and hairspray have never left their hair sticky at all.

If you do get lice, the Fairy Tales Lice Good-Bye Survival Kit is your go to product (and yes we keep one at the house just in case).

Truly, if you want to beat the super lice this year, get Fairy Tales!
