Protect Your Privacy and Your iPhone

am reviewing this awesome pouch for your smartphone simply because it
has been so hard to find something that truly protects your phone.
before I get into the positives, I'd like to point out that this is a
protective case. You cannot talk while it is in its case.
With that being said, I received a free Snugg case for me to review. 
I did not receive any compensation for this and I only will share what I really like with you guys.
case is for my iPhone 4S but they have them for a variety of phones. I
like it because I can carry it in my purse without having my phone get
all scratched up. 
can also keep it on my desk at work ready to make a call while still
maintaining privacy in case I step away and I receive a text or phone
In the past, I'd have to cover up my phone with a note pad or anything I could find when I stepped away. 
Here's how it works:


 The case itself is very well made and is aesthetically pleasing.

    Snugg also makes cases for other phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy. I'm thinking of getting one for my iPad as well.

It would be so useful when traveling :)

This would make a great gift especially with the holidays creeping up on us (did I just type that?!)

The Snugg iPhone 4/4S Pouch Case in premium distressed brown leather.

case has been designed to provide the perfect fit for your iPhone 4/4S.
The sides have been reinforced to give a sturdy and supportive hold,
while the soft, brown, nubuck fibre interior, keeps your phone snugg and
free from scratches. With a brown stitch finish along all the edges and
the Snugg logo pressed into the corner, this case looks and feels high
quality. We've included a great, easy to access place to keep business,
bank and oyster cards - there is a card slot on the back of the case!
the front of the case there is a tab, debossed with the Snugg icon,
which pulls out to pop your iPhone out of the pouch. The tab is on a
strong elastic strap that retracts quickly back into place when you
release it. The tab is also magnetic so it sticks to the side of the
case, meaning it always stays in place.
We think this product is great, it also comes in black leather and a tan suede. As with all our products it comes with the Snugg Promise of high quality materials and craftsmanship and a Lifetime Guarantee.

Anywho, I think you guys would like this case and I thought I'd share my thoughts about it with you. Again, I think it affords the most protection because your screen is completely covered. It does have small speaker perforations on the bottom so you can hear it. 

You can buy them here:

And I am really loving this stylus pen that attaches 
to your smartphone or tablet via the earphone jack.

 Can you say "clean screen"? 
Yeah, my iPad and phone's screens are yucky. 

Come back soon as I share more of the things I like and my DIY projects.

Product Review: Skindanavia Make Up Primer Spray

This is a sponsored post. The good folks at Skindanavia sent me a free sample to try and tell you what I think of their product. All opinions are 100% mine. 
 Skindanavia Makeup Primer Spray

Now if you are like me, you dread the summer. Not only for the heat, but for the oily mess your face will become, especially the forehead. 
I have VERY oily skin.  I always, always struggle with shinyness on my forehead and nose. So much so that even my kids come up to me and wipe my forehead :(
When Skindanavia contacted me to see if I'd like to try their product I jumped at the chance. 
I have tried almost everything. The blotter papers, the special corn silk powders, oily control foundations, etc. Nothing worked. I was a bit skeptical with this primer spray but I gave it a try.
I spray it in an X form over my face and wait about a minute before I apply my make up. 
Lo and behold my shinyness was not bothersome at all!
All day long I could see where my makeup had begun to fade by noon but the oilyness was not very noticeable. 
I loved it!
I now use it everyday. 
Try it for yourself.
Heck I'll even give you a bottle. 
Leave your name and why you need this make up primer spray and I will choose a winner on August 30th, 2014 at 10 p.m. CDT. Winner picked by
Shipped to the continental US only please.
In the meantime, check out their website.

Super Saturday at the Dallas Arboretum

 Staycation 1

This Saturday I decided to take the boys and my grandbaby out to the Dallas Arboretum. They are having $1 days everyday in August including the new Children's Garden!!

 We went right as they opened at 9 a.m. because we knew it would be stifling hot.
They allow you to bring in coolers so we packed up a small insulated tote with water bottles and a frozen pack.
We also brought along some snacks and a portable misting fan.
I tell you that was a life saver. 
Here is the gorgeous entrance and a few photos from the Children's Garden from their website:

 This is the plant lab inside the Exploration Center. We took respite from the heat in this really cool building. My sweet grandbaby loved exploring and feeling things out! 

                                     My not-so-little guy loved exploring the outdoor hydro power station. It served to cool him off some too!
And how about this gorgeous sculpture?! We were in awe with all the beautiful flowers. We will become members for sure so we can return again and again. Before we left I had my big guy take a quick pic of me and my grandbaby. 
Time goes by so fast that I want to record every moment of our lives through pictures.

What fun things have you done this summer?
