The Toiletry Bag with Accessories Review and a Giveaway! - US/CAN ends June 18, 2012

Check out the story behind the ToiletTree Products

ToiletTree Products began with a simple holiday gift from Mom. After receiving a fogless mirror as a Christmas present in 2008, Steven, who had always loved the concept of shaving in the shower, made it his mission to redesign the mirror that failed to stand up to its claims of being fog-free and unshakable wall adherence. Fed up with frustration and uneven shaves, Steven joined forces with his father and brother to design a mirror that not only stayed attached to the wall, but, most importantly, guaranteed a fogless face for life!

After many long months of brainstorming and testing prototypes, the trio took their design to manufacturing in January of 2010, where ToiletTree Products was finally born. A fun play on the word ‘toiletry,’ the company takes its name from the category in which their creations fall: bathroom products! In only a mere six months, ToiletTree’s Fogless Shower Mirror made its debut on, earning the title of Amazon’s #1 top-selling beauty product by Christmas of 2010. Due to the overwhelming number of customer requests, ToiletTree’s Fogless Shower Mirror expanded its line to include the Deluxe LED Mirror, as well as one fit for travel and On-The-Go. Today, ToiletTree Products rounds out its brand with the addition of other new essential bathroom products including nail clippers, face cleanser, oral irrigator and a collection of Bamboo bathroom accessories. A family-run company, ToiletTree Products takes great pride in providing consumers with unique and innovative products of only the highest quality.

The Toiletry Bag with Accessories

After reviewing and falling in love with the Deluxe LED Fogless Mirror, I was extremely excited to be able to review their newest product, The Toiletry Bag.  We don't go out of town that much but when we do, I'm never organized and I'll just throw my toiletry stuff into a plastic bag.  I've always wanted a toiletry bag but just never took the time to actually purchase one.

The bag has an easy to open double zipper top and a zipper compartment on the bottom of the bag.

The bottom zippered compartment contains 3 little convenient bottles that are specifically labeled for your body wash, conditioner, and shampoo.  Boy do I dislike having to take full bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash; it just takes up way too much space.  As for my toothbrush, I  would normally wrap it up in a paper towel or in a ziplock bag but now I don't have to with the convenient toothbrush holder.  The cup, that cut little cup/pill holder is so neat!  I haven't seen anything like it before, or maybe I just don't get out enough... hehe.  

This little bag is perfect and held all of the items I would normally take with me when going out of town.  The items you see below are: deodorant, hairbrush, face wash, hair serum, dry shampoo, face cream, face serum, and a razor.  There was still a little room left for a couple of more items, if needed.  

Here's a recap of the toiletry bag and it's items:
  • Designed to organize all of your toiletries while traveling.
  • Large double zipper compartment for easy access. Separate zipper compartment located on the bottom of bag.
  • Bag comes with 3 TSA approved travel bottles, collapsable cup with pill holder, and toothbrush case.
  • Designed with a fully water resistant interior.
  • Can also be used as a makeup and/or medicine bag.

The Toiletry Bag is a must have whether you travel very little or a lot.  The accessories, that are included with the bag, are so convenient and will make traveling a little lighter and for me, more enjoyable!  

How to connect:  You can connect with ToiletTree Products on Facebook and Twitter.

Where to buy:  You can purchase The Toiletry Bag on Amazon for $34.95 (currently on sale for $25) or you can purchase from the Amazon Canada Store Front here.

One of my US and Canadian readers will won of the Toiletry Bag with Accessories. Giveaway will close on June 18, 2012.  Good luck!

Smoobee Hair Brush Review and a Giveaway - US only ends June 10, 2012

Do you have to go to battle with your child, every day and night, in order to brush their hair?  If you said YES, just like I did, then I strongly encourage you to continue reading about the Magic No Cry Brush from Smoobee.

I dread the thought of having to brush the hair of my 10 and 2 year old girls.  Once they see me grab the hairbrush, they turn around and run!  My 10 year old is extremely tender headed and even the slightly tug will bring on the water works.  My 2 year old has curly hair that is always difficult to brush through so most of the time I just avoid the task all together.

Click to enlarge

When I received the Smoobee brush, I noticed the combination of the plastic and synthetic bristles.  This unique combination is designed to effectively brush through wet or dry hair without snagging or catching.  This statement could not have been more true.  The brush literally glided through my 10 year old's, slightly wavy, hair without snagging one time.  Her hair tangles so easily and for the Smoobee to brush right through is nothing short of a miracle!  After that, I really couldn't wait to use it on my 2 year old's curly hair;  this was definitely going to be the true test of the Smoobee!  Once again, the Smoobee did not fail to impress!  It still took a little effort, since she has really curly hair, but it didn't seem to hurt her one bit!  I used it on my own hair; there's no way I can go back to my old brush!  The Smoobee is most definitely a keeper.

The Smoobee comes in 3 colors: pink, turquoise and purple AND can be bedazzled!  What little lady wouldn't want to 'bling' out her own hairbrush?!

Where to buy:  If you are in need of a 'miracle worker' on your child's hair, then head on over to their website to purchase the Smoobee for $16.99 (worth every single penny). It's currently on sale for $14.99!  You can purchase the cute little gem stickers for only $2.99.

How to connect:  You can connect with Smoobee on Facebook.

Thanks to the generosity from the people at Smoobee, one of my US readers will win a brush of their very own.  This giveaway will end on June 10, 2012.  Good luck to all!!

eShakti - Fun, Feminine, Confident- Review and Giveaway! US/CAN ends May 31, 2012

Back in December, I did a review on eShakti.  If you didn't get to read that review you should really check it out.  I had the opportunity to review one of their tops and I still love wearing it.  The fit, length, length of sleeves...everything, was perfect!

If you haven't heard about eShakti, let me give you the 411.  eShakti not only brings you fun and flirty designs, you can customize the clothes to fit your body perfectly.  How many times have we tried on a top or dress and stood there, looking in the mirror, and wished that the waist was more tailored or wishing the sleeves were different.  Just about everything I try on, there's always something I wish I could change that would make the garment perfect.  That's where eShakti comes in.

Check out this dress..

Looks like 3 different dresses, yet it's one dress that has been customized!  You can choose to either purchase 'as is' or you can just change the length or sleeve style OR you can give your exact measurements and have the garment made to fit and flatter your individual body type.  

Since my last review, I have purchased a couple of more tops and was very pleased with them as well!

Check out some of their dresses..perfect for summer!

Check out some of their tops..

eShaki offers sizes 0-26W so there's something for just about eveyone! Go and check them out; you're sure to find something fabulous to wear in the summer warmth heat!

You can make a purchase directly from their website HERE.

How to connect:  You can connect with eShakti on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Thanks to the generosity of eShakti, one of my lucky readers will win a garment of their choosing with customization and all...yep, the works!  Giveaway is open to the US and Canada and will end on May 31, 2012!  Good luck to all!

Life's Crazy.. Dill With It! In A Pikle Organizer Bag Review and Giveaway US only Ends June 7, 2012

In A Pikle

Cute name but, what is In A Pikle?  In A Pikle is a super cute organizer that is brought to you by two friends, Marianne and Tamara.

In 2007, Marianne surprised Tamara with an unexpected visit for her birthday along with a homemade gift. It was a unique “emergency kit” made out of a hot pad and some snack baggies! Tamara loved it! In fact, it wasn’t long after that she called Marianne with the vision to make and sell these amazing little organizers to other busy mom’s like us!

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this beautiful emergency kit organizer.  After I received the Bread and Butter Pikle, I immediately started to add the starter pack, which was included.  The starter pack comes with just about everything you can imagine!
  • 1 exterior cover of your choice
  • 4 double sided clear bags
  • 1 hand sanitizer pen
  • 1 spot remover pen
  • 3 individually wrapped antibacterial wipes
  • 1 credit card size mirror and floss combo
  • 1 pair of tweezers
  • 1 pair of fingernail clippers
  • 2 emery boards
  • 1 travel size sewing kit
  • 1 retractable mini scissors
  • 1 24" tailor tape
  • 3 hair bands
  • 5 rubber bands
  • 5 bobby pins
  • 5 safety pins
  • 5 paper clips
  • 1 phillips head mini screw driver
  • 1 straight head mini screw driver
  • 1 mini pen
  • 1 "In A Pikle" sticky notepad
  • 10 adhesive bandages
  • 1 package travel tissues
  • 1 pill box

Click to enlarge

In A Pikle is so easy to put together.  There are two snaps in the middle that hold the clear interiors bags in place.  I love that you can buy different In A Pikle covers and be able to transfer the interior bags with ease. The organizer rolls up with such ease and using the 'easy to close' magnetic closure keeps everything nice and secure.

See snaps in the middle on the left and right side (click to enlarge)

In A Pikle sure does beat anything else I've ever used.  The size makes it convenient to carry in your handbag or to carry alone.  Just the other day, I was out and the wind was blowing something fierce and I was desperately needing a bobby pin to pin my bangs back....then it hit me; I grabbed my handbag, pulled out my In A Pikle and grabbed a bobby pin!  I use the hand sanitizer quiet frequently and the stain stick came in handy, just the other day...and it actually works!

I often wonder how the heck I've lived so long without In A Pikle!  It's just like wondering, how did I ever live without a cell phone... yea, it's just that much of a convenience and necessity!

From now until July 2, 2012 you will receive a discount of 10% off   by using promo code 'ifonly'.  

You will need to do 2 things at checkout:

  • Let them know that you saw them on MY blog (If Only Life Could Be That Simple) when asked "how" they heard about "In A Pikle" 
  • Enter this assigned code to receive the discount.

Where to purchase:  You can purchase your own In A Pickle HERE for only $34.99.  Purchase refill packs for only $5.99 or the complete In A Pikle Refill Pak for only $15.99.  Check out their website for other fun and flirty designs!

How to connect:  You can connect with In A Pikle on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.

Thanks to the generosity of In A Pikle, one of my US readers is going to win one of their very one.  Winner will receive the Sweet Pikle, the exact one you see pictured above and on the Rafflecopter form.  Retail value of the prize is $34.99. Giveaway will end on June 7, 2012.  Good luck to all!
