Art Elite Color Pencils Review* Get Your Color On

Not your kids coloring!

The new trend of adult coloring is my all time favorite way to relax and unwind. This is actually been something I have done my whole life. Granted, I been coloring Disney themes and other kid choice coloring items. I couldn't have been more excited that someone decided to make coloring books themed at adults. There are so many options with these books, from curse words to mantras the possibilities are endless. 

I currently have about 5 or 6 coloring books in my possession now. While finding time can be hard for a mom of 5 who goes to school and works from home, I have now made it a priority in my schedule. All Moms need downtime in order to refuel and prevent from loosing their minds.

Marker, Coloring Pencils, Crayons OH MY!

I was super excited to receive these Art Elite coloring pencils, especially since mine I had bought when my daughter was 5 and is now 16. The Crayola colored pencils frustrated me cause I am a fan of coloring light. With the Crayola colored pencils, they appearance of my pictures seemed like they just weren't blended or as if I missed spots. But this wasn't the case and when I went back over these sections, they then appeared darker than what I had colored. So naturally I began coloring right away when I received these.

48 colors of creativity had my imagination juice flowing. My inner child came out while I silenced my phone and grab the Ipod to relax. Butterfly pic here we go!!!

First, thing I noticed was that these made light coloring appear so beautiful. SCORE! This is how I color so that sold me on this brand immediately. Continuing with the picture, I thought to my self about those who like to "color hard" and felt that I should test the hold up of pressure when these are used in such way. SCORE again!!! These did not break when applying pressure and the picture looked fabulous. The enclosed sharpener worked great to the point of getting an extreme tip every time for those hard to get areas.

If you have ever accidentally colored out of the lines then you will greatly appreciated the included eraser. Personally those little small lines get me every time. I blame my bad eyes lol.

The only thing that puzzled me is why they did not include names. I grabbed what I thought was black and it was actually a dark blue. While the blending blush was a great idea, I couldn't see any difference when using it. BUT these blend well without it and add dimension to any picture. See for yourself.

     The season is gradually creeping up fast and those family get togethers are upon us. What to wear? What to wear? Natural we want to look our best but if you are anything like me, the focus is really on the kiddos. But, why spend a lot when they just out grow them fast?  Am I right? Which lead me to Crazy 8. Your children can look their best without hurting your bank account and most importantly look amazing and still be comfortable. Sound like you, then read further.
     Whether you have a boy or girl this is the "happening spot" for toddlers to kiddos size 14 (see size chart on each item). Start with those little princesses you can grab the pullover fleece and match it with some micro fleece pants (both $6).

Limelight Review

As the majority of my readers know, I am friends with many amazing direct sellers.  From Tupperware to bags, to natural products, to self-defense, the direct seller's community is rapidly growing in many areas of needs. When I heard there was another makeup company, I was excited to see what would set them apart from the rest.
Upon looking at the site, I was intrigued and disappointed. I loved the website and their colors (truly perked my interest), but the prices were not budget friendly for me. Let's face it, I always feel guilty about spending money on me but if it's cheaper I feel less guilty. Make sense?  I have tested and reviewed many products over the years and naturally, I am always kinda skeptical since so many claim results but far and few provide them. If they do they take forever to show and by then I have lost interest.

Let me back up a tad and tell you about what lead me to my discovery. If you have ever dealt with someone in direct sells or do that line of wor…

Where to get freebies? Freebie Sites and their Brief breakdowns

Freebie Sites and their breakdown
  I often get people asking where do I get my freebies and how to do these sites work. I thought why not give those a guide to go by. I went through countless sites and being spammed before I came up with a legit list and one that does NOT spam you and that you actually get what they say.    I enjoy helping others and hope you all get lots of good freebies.
