Softlips Review & Giveaway

February 25, 2010 By · 111 Comments

How many of you have went through a day picking at your lips because they were dry? Or saw your child doing it? Chances are with the weather being as cold as it has in the past two months more and more people will be needing to reach for a stick to moisten their lips. Now, I’ve stated here before of my love for Softlips and how my son refuses to use them but the girls just adore those tiny lady-like sticks.

I wrote Softlips and explained to them that I’d been hearing they had all these different flavors out there but I’d only seen two and that was vanilla and regular. They asked me if I’d like to review some new flavors (I get the sticks to review for free, they got a review and ya’ll get a giveaway) they had out. Of course I said yes, so here goes.

The “Winter Flavors“:
-Softlips® Sugar & Spice
-Softlips® Sugar Plum Berry
-Softlips® Sugar Cookie

The kids absolutely love the sugar cookie, which has now found a home in my purse because this is the one they frequently ask for. I think I’ll have to buy an entire box of this flavor. I never thought a chapstick flavor would stick like this. Now it really does smell like sugar cookies, you know that sweet smell of a freshly baked sugar cookie, well that’s it. I dont’ recommend licking it, although my daughter (age 6) insists it tastes yummy and my 2 year old son licks it every time I put it in. I now have to tell him he can’t have any unless he doesn’t lick it.
I liked the Cherry that came in the Sugar Cookie, so as you can see that is a good thing as I can have it all to myself. With the Sugar and Spice you can immediately smell the sweet scent of spices, it makes me think of pumpkin pie for some reason. You can taste (through scent not actual taste) the berry in Sugar Plum Berry.
Sugarlips PURE Flavors:
-Acai Berry
-Chai Tea (my favorite)
Each stick smells just like their name!
Where can you get Softlips? For a suggested retail price of $2.99 to $3.99 for the dual-stick pack. Now through out the holiday/winter season, the limited addition flavors Sugar & Spice and Sugar Plum Berry are available in Target. You can get them at Walmart too, but mine didn’t have them.

The New Look and some Info

February 24, 2010 By · 1 Comment

This is still the same old “The Life of a Home Mom,” however now there is a bit more color to it. At this point I’m not sure why you can’t just click a post title and go to that page. But I do know on the sidebar you can click the name there and it will take you to that page.

Comments are still a go, at the bottom of each post it says comments. Click on the comment to write one. It will then take you to that comment page.

Please let me know what you think of the new look. Like it or hate it? I can still fool around with it. If you by chance know how to fix the whole clicking the title issue I’d love to know. Have a GREAT day!!

Review of Motherhood

February 24, 2010 By · No Comments

I was recently sent “Motherhood” the movie in order to review it. This is one of those mommy movies that I think all of us can relate to if you know what I mean. There are always the great days we may have as moms but it isn’t often that we describe, in great details the bad ones. The movie starts off with a very tired mom looking over a to do list for her daughter’s birthday party in the middle of the night. As she walks around the house she cleans up after everyone but stops to take a digital picture of her daughter sleeping in bed. You know to catch that first moment of her daughter’s new age.

When the alarm finally goes off the morning rush is in full gear. Mom is making breakfast for everyone, brewing coffee, signing papers, etc. Dad is sitting in a chair reading his paper as mom hurries around grabbing laundry to make a full load, grabbing shoes and putting them on children. On her way out she stops to ask the elderly neighbor to see if they can help with anything.

Outside her daughter runs into the neighbor across the street that is obviously in a higher income bracket. The two girls try to compete with one another over parties until her own daughter stares up at her and says, “I’m going to have really cool goody bags. Right mom?” Talk about a guilt trip. Of course that’s when she realizes she is still wearing her nightgown. (what mom hasn’t done this?)

Next we have her trying to manage her day with her toddler in a backpack, walking the neighbor’s dog and finding out that she needs to move her car immediately as a street sweeper is coming through. Watch the hilarious scenes of her trying to get her spot back, shopping, waiting in line, bringing the groceries home on a bicycle, etc. All this in the name of making that perfect birthday party.

But during it all she realizes she wants to be more than “just a mom” she wants to write again and this doesn’t count blogging. Writing is something she use to love to do, but gave up on it once she started changing diapers and wiping noses. She finds a contest in which she can become a columnist but she must write what “Motherhood” means to her by nightfall.  Will her husband understand this need? Will she pull off this party?  Can she write it up in time? Or will she go certifiably insane before the party and go off on every person around? Watch and find out.

Motherhood, it’s what its all about!  Uma Thurman, who also starred in Accidental Husband, stars in Motherhood as she takes on the life of the mom mentioned above, Eliza.   This is a comical view on just one day of Motherhood and I can totally relate.

(I was sent a copy of “Motherhood” in order to review the movie. All opinions are mine. If you click on the links I might make a few pennies from amazon affiliate)

Wordless Wednesday: Hurry Up Spring

February 24, 2010 By · 3 Comments
It’s cold, plant life is frozen and I’m ready for Spring. Anyone else? Sure I love the beauty of it but I don’t like that I have to be extra careful not to slip on my butt the moment I step on a stair or out of the car.  Happy WW!
