For our review:

I chose to make a 5 coupon book for my hubby for Christmas. Of course this isn't going to be a big surprise as he gets the messages that a new blog post, so he will end up seeing it. But if not, I am using this as a stocking stuffer for him this year.

First: It came in a cute little envelope:

Perfect, don't even have to "wrap" it. Will just slip right into the stocking.

Because I wanted to get this for him for Christmas, I chose the Merry Christmas cover:

A couple of the "coupons" that I chose:

What is nice about these?

The quality is unbelievable.  The coupons are awesome.  Even has a spot to write in the date that the coupon is redeemed.  The coupons are on good quality paper and the colors are bright.

There are so many selections to choose from. I had a hard time narrowing my choices down to five for the review. 

Plus, you can also add pictures of yourself. You upload your pictures and the company will incorporate them onto the coupons.  Would be a really nice way to personalize the coupons for your loved one.

These are definitely an A+ product and would be a great gift for someone.

If you do order from the company the last day for standard shipping (if for a Christmas present) is December 13th.

Mighty Handle Holiday Product Review and Giveaway

Okay, admit it.

Raise your hands.  Oh wait, you can't because you are trying to make one trip from your car to your home with all your bags.  You know you do it. I do it. You cut off your circulation, your fingers turn blue, your hand goes numb, just so you can get it all in one trip.

Well, you don't have to do that anymore.  

This is where Mighty Handle comes in. Some of you may have heard of this product already.  It is a handle that you can load up your bags on and carry with one hand.  No more spills, no more ripped bags, one trip, all your bags.

Now really, how awesome is that?

Bet you wish you thought of it, don't you? I know that I do.

According to research the company has spent over "4 years perfecting a handle that is durable, lightweight and comfortable."  This  little handle packs a big punch and can carry up to 50 pounds in one trip. 

What did I love about it?

Well, I love how it is so simple to use. Wow. I love the rubber type handle on it. Very comfortable in my hand.  It does its job. You would think that something so small couldn't handle such large jobs.  Even hubby loved it and our little one keeps saying "how cool it is." 

You know what else is nice about this?

The Mighty Handle is easy to store. It is small, takes up very little space. You can keep it in your vehicle glove compartment box so you can grab it quickly. Big purse? You can keep it in there and it also fits well in that utility drawer that you have in your kitchen.

Kohl's Gift Card Holiday Giveaway

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Yes, the holiday season is upon us.  Though if you have been out in public since September you know that it was out  long before now. I don't mind seeing the decorations in the store, but it just seems to be getting earlier and earlier each year.

Actually found a radio station the first part of October that was playing almost all Christmas music each hour. That, my friends, is a little to early for that. I love it when the stations will start playing non-stop Christmas songs from early Christmas eve morning through the 26th.  

What does this all lead up to? 

Well, I tried to get some giveaways/sponsorships for our blog for some holiday giveaways but, except for one, wasn't able to secure anything.  Still to small of a blog to get their attention.

But, that is okay, because, YES, we do have some holiday giveaways for our readers.  They might not be worth hundreds and hundreds of dollars, but they are fun little giveaways.

So, to start off our holiday giveaway, we have a $10 Kohl's gift card to give to one of our readers. 

Will be easy to enter using the rafflecopter form.

Giveaway is open to residents of the US who are 18+ and will close on December 2, 2013 at 11:59 p.m.  

Disclaimer: This is a self-sponsored giveaway! Prize will be mailed in plenty of time to use it for the holiday season.

Good luck everyone!

Zim's Product Review and Giveaway

If you are familiar with my blog you would already know that I have worked with this wonderful company in the past and now have had the chance to do another product review with them.

The company I am speaking of is Zim's, and I did a review of some of their naturally made products HERE. Please go and read it if you like. In reference to that review, I have to tell you that those products seem to be the gift that keep on giving. I have once again hurt my back and I can't tell you how many times in the past few days that I have used the Max-Freeze rub and yes, it works. 

This time around I got the chance to do reviews of: Zim's Arnica Max, Zim's Advanced Crack Creme w/ Hydrocortisone and Zim's Advanced Gel with Acemannan and Arnica. 

A little bit about the company: Perfecta Products, Inc. is the national manufacturer and distributor of the innovative Zim's product line, a dynamic line of naturally based consumer products.
Their goal is to be the leading manufacture and distributor of natural products that make a difference in the lives of the consumers. The company was founded more than 60 years ago and started with just one product at that time "Zim's Crack Cream." They now have over the counter natural products for pain relief, lip care, diabetic living, skin care and first aid. 

They really have you covered if you need any of the over the counter first aid items. 

Perfect Products Inc. also offer other products such as skin care, beauty and health related items. 

Their audience/consumers are people who want to use natural based item, people who are seeking a higher quality of life and those individuals who are looking for temporary pain relief. 

You can find their products offered at numerous retail establishments in North America, including, but not limited to: Kinney Drugs, Walmart, CVS, K-Mart, Target, Rite-Aid and Kroger's. They can also be purchased online at, and 

My review:

The product that I used the most was the Zim's Advanced Crack Creme with Hydrocortisone.

For some reason I have been getting bitten up like crazy lately from insects. My ankles and lower legs have been a target for them and cause me a bit of discomfort due to all the itching and scratching I've been doing.  Using this product has relived the itching and gave me some relief from the continuous scratching I have been doing. 

I also recently got the chance to try out the: Zim's Arnica Max due to a fall. 

The product claims it might "help with bruising and swelling due to injury." I took a nasty fall and did use the product, swelling was still there, but I noticed that I didn't bruise as bad as I normally would. I tend to bruise rather easily on occasion and was surprised that the bruising that I had after the fall was minimal. 

The last product that we reviewed was the Zim's Advanced Gel with Acemannan and Arnica.

This product is used for minor cuts, scrapes, abrasions and burns.  Perfect for hubby who was the "tester" for it.  With his job he is always getting cut up, abrasions and sometimes burns. He had a cut from work and used this product on it.  He said that it didn't go on greasy, easy to use, and actually made it feel a bit better shortly after applying it. Being that it contains Acemannan, which is "nature's purest form of Aloe Vera" I figured that it would definitely work for him.

Conclusion: I am a big fan of the Zim's product line.  I love how they are all naturally based, easy to use, not greasy and really work.  I would continue to recommend their products to people to have on hand "just in case." Oh and I actually did to someone standing next to me at the drug store looking for a product for a back-ache. Pointed them in the Zim's direction, told them I wasn't a doctor or anything, but I have used their products for a while now and they really seem to work and that they are all naturally-based.

If you want to touch base with Zim's you can find them:

The company has also generously offered to give one of our readers the same three products that we got to review.  Just check out the rafflecopter form to enter.

Giveaway is open to residents in the US who are 18+ and will end on November 30, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Please allow 6-8 weeks from the end of giveaway to receive your prize (though they are normally very quick to ship). Lollipops n' Ladybugs is not responsible for the shipment of the prize.

Disclaimer: I received no monetary compensation for this post. All words (except quoted red text) are my own and were not influenced by any outside source. To do a proper product review, I did receive the above mentioned products free of charge.

Many thanks to Zim's for allowing us to do another product review and giveaway for our readers.

Good luck!

Beautiful - Live Skin Care System System Giveaway

I had a wonderful opportunity to do a product review for Beautiful AM Moisturizer and Beautiful PM Moisturizer from Trusted Health Products. One to apply in the morning and the other one to apply before bed.

They came with my name on the label, how cool is that?

My Review:

I have been using this product for a bit over a month now and have noticed a difference in my skin.  I admit, that I have always been a slacker when it came to taking care of my skin. I have overly sensitive skin and am prone to break-outs so I rarely where makeup (almost never) and hardly ever use anything on my skin that I feel could cause me issues down the road, like harsh cleansers.

When I first tried this, I was a tad nervous about it. As I said, I am prone to break-outs with oily spots and this is an oil based product. To use to: you add a few drops to your palm and then use your fingers to rub it in a circular motion onto your skin. You don't rub it all the way in and you don't rinse it off. I could see a major break-out happening by using this product. But guess what? It didn't. It stated in the paperwork that you might get a break-out when you first start using the product, but I didn't notice anything different than what I was use to.  

What I did notice was that during that special time, and ladies you know what time that is I am referring to, my break-out wasn't as bad as it normally is. I was pleasantly surprised. No major break-out while using the product. 

Looking at my skin in the mirror I can see a slight noticeable change in it. Do I dare say a slight glow? My skin does look cleaner and more even.  

As I mentioned I was really worried about what would happen with my sensitive skin by using a product that I hadn't used before, but my worry was for nothing. 

The ingredients in these products: AM: 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, avocado and olive. PM: 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, evening primrose and apricot. So if you have certain allergies, I'd be aware of the ingredients in these products.

All and all, in my review, I give the product two thumbs up. I plan on to keep using this product in my morning and evening routine, just have to remember to do it and not be such a "taking care of my skin" slacker.

Also, want to add: hey guys?? Yes, this is for the guys or for the ladies that want to make sure their guys skin looks awesome, they have a product for men too? It is called You're The Man. Check it out!!
