Review of Y’OUR Personalized Skincare

Disclosure: I was provided with Y’OUR Personalized Skincare to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are own. Please see my disclosure policy)

As someone in their early 4o’s, I definitely am paying much more to attention to my skin and the skincare that I use. It seems that once you hit 40, your skin starts playing tricks on you. I have definitely noticed more redness around my nose, and yes, those pesky lines around my mouth and lips are starting to appear!

Thankfully, I never really had acne or any other skin problems when I was younger, but now that I am getting older and noticing the signs of the aging process creeping in, I need to address those problems now before it becomes an issue. So, when I was asked to review Y’OUR Personalized Skincare, I couldn’t wait to give the products a try! 

Getting started with Y’OUR Personalized Skincare is super easy! Build your perfect skin care regimen by taking a simple quiz HERE. This quiz helps Y’OUR to see what your skin type is. They will then formulate the best custom regimen for your specific needs. Sounds too easy, right? It is that simple!

Y’OUR creates a personalized regimen for you based on what you’re looking to improve in your skin. The products that you will receive are full size products (3 month supply). They also have a satisfaction guarantee policy in which they offer to reformulate the products for you for free up to 2 times during the first 3 months to make sure that you are completely satisfied. 

I also appreciate that Y’OUR products evolve with me. Before users are sent their next set of products, they will be sent an evaluation form to make any adjustments if necessary. Our skin can change depending on the season and as we age so I greatly appreciate this! 

What about the ingredients in Y’OUR Personalized Skincare? You will be happy to know that their cleanser is safer and more effective than physical exfoliating cleansers since it has the ability to penetrate the skin for deeper exfoliation while does not involve actually rubbing the skin. In addition, the products are made with clean ingredients, no fillers, and are Paraben and toxin free. They are also made right here in the USA and there is no animal testing done on them and they are cruelty free. 

When my Y’OUR Personalized Skincare Kit arrived, I was very pleased with the beautiful packaging! The purple box made it extra special! When I opened the box, I found it extremely helpful that they had enclosed a card with my personal skincare routine. This is so helpful and shows me step-by-step how to apply the products.

My personalized skincare routine is comprised of 4 products: Cleanser, Day Cream, Serum and the Night Cream.

Cleanser– I have found that you don’t need much of this cleanser to get the job done. A small dime sized amount is perfect and it makes your skin feel soft, fresh and super clean. This cleanser is perfect for combination skin as it purifies your skin and gives you a smooth complexion.

Day Cream– I love the day cream! It is not heavy at all and I appreciate that I can place my foundation right on top of it and it doesn’t weigh my skin down. This also has an SPF 30 which is so important in a day cream. This formula combines the UV deflecting properties of Titanium minerals with protective ingredients to prevent sun damage, neutralize harmful free radicals, and keep away pollution damages.

Serum– Out of the 4 products in my personalized skincare kit, the serum is my favorite! You simply apply 2-3 drops on your face and let the magic happen. The serum gives your face a nice firm feeling without being greasy or overpowering. I like to take the serum as well as the Day and Night Creams all the way to my neck. Your neck can start to show aging very early on so it is important that we cover that area as well! In addition, it infuses your skin with a boost of anti-inflammatory benefits to instantly calm redness, rosacea and the most sensitive skin.

Night Cream– The Night Cream is fabulous! While it is a bit thicker than the day cream, it glides right on and you wake up feeling refreshed and your face is super soft! The night cream helps to reduce wrinkles and even your skin tone.

What are my thoughts so far on Y’OUR Personalized Skincare? I have only been using these products for under 2 weeks, but I have noticed that my skin is much more soft and manageable. I can really tell that these products are targeted just for my skin, which is very impressive to me. I love the unique approach that Y’OUR Personalized Skincare takes and would highly recommend that you try them for yourselves! Right now when you take a personalized quiz HERE you will receive $15 off the Y’OUR Personalized Skincare kit. You have nothing to lose but only beautiful skin to gain!

Review of the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set

Disclosure: I was provided with the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to start each morning with is a breakfast of eggs. Whether they be scrambled, hard-boiled, over easy or even poached, I love eggs! They are such a great source of protein and energy to get my going in the right direction.

When my friend Leah, who is a Tupperware Consultant, offered to let me review the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set, I was super excited to do so! This set allows you to make omelets, oatmeal and even french toast right in the microwave in just minutes! As a busy mom, this is right up my alley! Would you believe that I was able to make that gorgeous omelet in the picture above in the microwave? Yes, it is that easy! I simply added my veggies and 2 eggs to a bowl mixed them up and added them to the breakfast maker. I placed it in the microwave for around 2 1/2 minutes and voila! The perfect omelet! I can’t wait to try french toast for my boys!

With the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set, you will receive a 1 3/4 cup breakfast maker and two Egg inserts that will allow you to make poached eggs and egg patties. Priced at just $29, I believe that this is a great value for the money considering you will use it multiple times a week. There is no reason to not cook a quick healthy breakfast! The Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set is dishwasher safe AND comes with a Lifetime Warranty. If for any reason it cracks, splits or peels, Tupperware will replace it for free! Wow-that is an awesome guarantee! 

How would you like to try the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set for FREE? Yes you read that right! Right now when you book a Tupperware party with my friend Leah (it is easy to do and can be done right online) you will get one for FREE!

If you are interested in hosting a party with Leah or have other questions about Tupperware, please contact her, HERE. There are lots of other incentives when you host a party like hostess credit and half-price items so don’t hesitate to contact her.

I think that you will enjoy the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set as much as I do and get a lot of use out of it! It really is a great item to have in your kitchen and will save you so much time!

Salads Have Arrived at Sun Basket!

Disclosure: I was provided with product to facilitate this review for Sun Basket. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I am a huge fan of Sun Basket! They strive to make healthy cooking easy and delicious, and they offer organic and sustainably sourced produce and responsibly-sourced meats and seafoods. I love having the option of a meal delivery service right to my door that fits my family’s busy schedule. And now, things have gotten even more exciting! Salads have arrived at Sun Basket! I was so excited to have the opportunity to try several of these delicious new salads and couldn’t wait to share my review with you all! Choose from: Southwestern Salad, Vegan Caesar, Rainbow Asian Salad, and Protein Crunch Super Greens. 

These salads are available to add to your weekly basket. Not only are these salads delicious, but they are literally ready in minutes!  You simply mix, dress, and enjoy! I also love that you can serve them as is or add a protein if you prefer. Voila, you have a healthy and delicious meal for lunch or dinner. The possibilities are endless! 

I tried the Protein Crunch Salad and the Kale Caesar Salad. Both were equally delicious and packed full of flavor! The thing that I love about these salads is that they come with their own information card that shows you step by step instructions on how to prepare them. So easy! In fact, they can be prepared and on the table within 5 minutes!

Protein Crunch Salad:

This salad is packed full of flavor! Puffed quinoa, buttery walnuts, and kale are combined with dried blueberries and riced cauliflower for color and crunch. The dressing is an organic sherry vinaigrette which gives the salad a sweet and nutty taste. It was delicious!

Kale Caesar Salad:

This delicious salad is a healthy twist of the classic caesar salad. Instead of those croutons the classic caesar salad is known for, this healthy spin combines dry-roasted chickpeas and sunflower seeds to give you that satisfying crunch!I added some grilled chicken to my salad for extra protein! With Sun Basket’s organic vegan caesar dressing you get all the flavor of the original caesar dressing, but this one is plant-based and made with almond milk and cashew butter. It is absolutely amazing! 

In addition to these delicious salads, Sun Basket also sent me a couple of meals to prepare last week. We had the Chicken Parmesan and the Pan-seared steaks with chimichurri and citrus-walnut salad. Of all the meal delivery services that my family has tried, Sun Basket has the freshest ingredients. In addition every detail is amazing when they ship their meals. They send you everything that you need to prepare the dish. They even send the egg! The only thing that you need from your pantry is the olive oil and salt and pepper. It makes cooking so easy!

Pan-seared steaks with chimichurri and citrus-walnut salad:

The sweet-tart of the citrus and delicately bitter chicory lettuce along with the seared steak makes for an easy one-pan paleo meal that will taste like you stepped into your favorite restaurant! 

Chicken Parmesan with house salad:

One of my personal all time favorites! This Italian-American classic combines hearty, gooey, and satisfying with breaded chicken, fresh-cooked tomato sauce, and a green salad. Sun Basket has delivered with this one! Every bite was cleaned off my family’s plates! 

GO HERE to try Sun Basket for yourself to see just how delicious the meals are. Have you tried Sun Basket before? Did you like it?

Review of LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta + Savings Coupon!

Disclosure: My family and I were provided with complimentary tickets to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

My family and I were recently traveling through Atlanta during the holidays and had the wonderful opportunity to visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Believe it or not, LEGOLAND Discovery Center can be found on the third floor of Phipps Plaza, one of Atlanta’s most prestigious malls. LEGOLAND Discovery Center is the ultimate indoor LEGO playground with 2 rides, 10 LEGO build & play zones, a 4D cinema & much more! Since my boys are huge LEGO fans, there were super excited when they found out that we were going here! 

The first thing that you will notice when you enter, is a fun exhibit all about how LEGO bricks are made. You can even go on a behind-the-scenes Factory Tour to discover how LEGO bricks are made! This is fun for all ages! 

From there, we went on the Kingdom Quest ride. This indoor ride is all about capturing the Princess! Hop aboard your chariot on the Kingdom Quest ride to rescue her.This ride is suitable for children ages 4+. I rode with Brady our youngest, while my hubby went with Drew our oldest. They both thoroughly enjoyed as we were able to shoot targets throughout the ride.

Our entire family loved the LEGO 4D Cinema! While we were there, The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure was showing featuring Emmet, Wyldstyle, Benny, MetalBeard and Unikitty. It was so cute and had real effects like water, wind and more! There are several features available and they have new bricktastic news in store for 2019! 

There are lots of other things to see along the way at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, including Miniland. This was my personal favorite! It features Atlanta landmarks all built by LEGOS in day and night settings. In fact, Miniland is made from nearly 1.5 million LEGO® bricks, with moving cars and trains, so even the smallest spectator will feel like a giant! It is so cool! 

Other things to do at LEGOLAND Discovery Center include: Merlin’s Apprentice Ride, Pirate Adventure Island, Duplo Village, LEGO Master Builder Academy, Earthquake Tables, LEGO Friends, LEGO Racers: Build and Test, and the Ultimate LEGO Ninjago Experience. These activities are sure to keep your little ones busy for hours. They even have their own cafe which features beverages, snacks and other delicious foods. I noticed that their prices were very reasonable too!

No trip the LEGOLAND Discovery Center would be complete without visiting the LEGO Store! They offer LEGO sets, plush, toys and more!

Overall, we had such a fantastic time at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Atlanta, and I would highly recommend it if you live in the area or you are passing through!

Review of the Paw Patrol PlasmaCar + GIVEAWAY!

Disclosure: I was provided with a Paw Patrol PlasmaCar to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

UPDATE: The winner is Mandy G.

My son Brady was super excited when he found out that we were going to feature a Paw Patrol PlasmaCar this year in our Holiday Gift Guide. He loves Paw Patrol, and of course, we love the Original PlasmaCar! Put the two together and you have one very happy boy! Brady could not wait for his daddy to assemble the Chase Paw Patrol PlasmaCar so that he could get on it and give it a spin! 

No job is too big, no pup is too small! Now you can have Chase, Skye or Marshall from the Nickelodeon™ kid’s show, PAW Patrol® to light up your child’s imagination. The sleek innovative design of The Original PlasmaCar® features a patented safety seat, polypropylene wheels, and has been upgraded with paw print footrests and hubcaps, and PAW Patrol® character themed decals. Kid powered; kid approved! Turn and navigate in small spaces indoors, and ride outdoors on sidewalks, pathways, and any other safe, smooth, flat surface. The Paw Patrol PlasmaCar® is easy to operate, and helps your child develop coordination, balance, and motor skills while harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction. 

I personally love that PlasmaCar® is adult-friendly too! Did you know that they hold up to 220 pounds? Even Dad and Mom can get in on the fun! And, it doesn’t require an expensive power source that needs constant replacement, it provides kids with plenty of exercise, and it is quiet! In fact, the only sound that you’ll hear is the sound of the wheels! Yay! How is that for a great gift idea this holiday season? 

As you can see from the photos, Brady has had so much fun on his Chase Paw Patrol PlasmaCar! I know that he is going to have hours of fun wiggling away on it in the months to come! Want to see more details and information about the Paw Patrol Plasma Car? GO HERE to check them all out!
