Thanks to our friends at #MyPresentForYou who provided the boxes so we could have a little fun wrapping up our Spring gifts!

We love gift wrapping staples and these
white glossy gift boxes are no exception! Sold as a set of 10 with white tissue paper and butterfly bows, these versatile boxes are ready to house your favorite gifts including cupcakes, cookies, baby items or Spring gifts like succulents, decorative candles, scarves and more!

The gift box set (10 boxes) comes flat packed and is under $20 with Amazon Prime. Each box measures 9 inches x 4.5 inches x 4.5 inches. The boxes are cut well, super easy to put together (and stay together!), and have a glossy finish on the outside.

The finish really makes a difference in the quality and gift presentation. The top folds in which creates a smooth seam that can easily hold it’s own or be taped shut for easier travel.

We recommend adding ribbon, paper, washi tape or other embellishments to create a personalized look. We chose fushia/pink and mint/teal combination to celebrate Spring. Striped washi tape, glitter center flowers, textured scrapbook papers, dyed twine, gift tags and polka dot ribbon adorn the white boxes. The above embellishments can be found at Michaels.

Youth Glow Eye Gel by goPURE Naturals … Your Eyes Will Thank You


We have been testing Youth Glow Eye Gel by goPURE Naturals for about a week and a half. Just like other reviewers, we are impressed with the quality ingredients, ease of application and quick results.

The packaging is great, a perfect size for at home use or for travel (0.5 fl. oz.). It includes an easy to use pump in which one good pump is enough to cover both eyes. The formula is 100% natural and paraben free. The actual ingredients are impressive including proprietary peptide complex, vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, matrixyl 3000, plant stem cells and vitamin e. The eye cream smells like fresh cucumbers, easily glides on the eyes (with a fairly quick drying time) and creates a cooling effect similar to a spa facial!

goPURE Naturals recommends using the product for at least one full month for the greatest results. We noticed a reduction in puffiness and lines, and a”tightening” of the skin in a comfortable way. It didn’t completely win us over in the reducing dark circles department, but part of dark circles can be from genes and usually requires a little makeup coverage to completely remove anyway. We were still impressed with the eye cream’s performance, ingredients and affordability (currently under $13) and would purchase again.

If you are in the market for a natural eye cream, give Youth Glow a try. You can easily purchase through Amazon Prime and goPURE Naturals offer a 100% money back guarantee.

Exfoliate Naturally with The Japanese Konjac Sponge…


The Japanese Konjac Sponge is a great exfoliation tool that is perfect for everyday use. The konjac sponge comes in many different infusion options, the one that we recently received is infused with green tea. Green tea extract contains anti-inflammatory properties that helps control acne and unwanted blemishes.

The Japanese Konjac Sponge is made from the Konjac plant root that is grown in Japan. It is 100% eco-friendly and can be used by adults as well as babies. Used by the Japanese for more than 100 years, the cleansing sponge is gaining in worldwide popularity. The unique alkaline layer of wet Konjac sponge neutralizes slightly acidic grime, which helps to break down dirt and oil, leaving the skin fresh and clean.  The sponge does not contain artificial fragrance or preservatives. It also balances skin pH through gentle exfoliation.

The sponge is very easy to use. Simply remove from packaging (sponge will be rough and dense, similar to floral foam) and run under warm water for a few minutes or submerge in a sink full of water. The sponge should feel completely soft and pliable. Once in this state, you the damp sponge to cleanse your face. You can even add your favorite cleanser for a deeper clean. Rinse sponge and hang to dry using the attached string. The sponge should be replaced every 4-6 weeks.

The Japanese Konjac Sponge was very easy for us to use, gentle on our skin (even for people with sensitive skin) and at only $11.00, a great gift for yourself or a friend!

Beat Winter Colds with Baby Comfy Nose + GIVEAWAY!


When your child has a cold it can put a damper on your daily routine. As parents, we are constantly searching for new products that will make life easier during these trying times. The Baby Comfy Nose nasal aspirator uses your own suction to quickly and hygienically remove children’s nasal mucus.

Bulb and battery aspirators don’t work efficiently and when your baby’s nose is irritated you need a product that will work well in a short amount of time. Baby Comfy Nose uses the power of your lungs which creates a much stronger suction enabling you to pull more mucus out. The best part is the Baby Comfy Nose is designed so that you do not come in contact with any of the mucus or germs. Once you have purchased Baby Comfy Nose ($12.99) there are no additional costs for filters. Simply use a disposable tissue as a filter, allowing you to use the unit over and over again by putting all of the pieces in the enclosed mesh bag and sanitizing it in the dish washer.

After Baby Comfy Nose has been sanitized, hang it to dry and store it in the nursery or toss the tiny pouch in the diaper bag if you are on the go. Baby Comfy Nose comes in three colors for girls, boys and a neutral clear (perfect for baby shower gifts!). Each BPA and phthalate-free unit comes with two medical grade nose tips: standard and newborn as well as a medical grade mouth piece.

Baby Comfy Nose is a perfect gift for parents who are having their first child or for families with multiple children. Please enter below for your chance to WIN your own Baby Comfy Nose! You can even choose the color.
