Framed Art Review

Disclaimer-300x152

I love taking photographs, it’s a hobby of mine. I absolutely love going to the store and printing/framing my favorite photos. We recently received the chance to review from Framed Art. Framed Art has many different photos to choose from or you can simply upload a photo of your own. I chose to upload a photo of Kyliee from over the summer. It’s a very simple process, you upload your picture, choose the frame you want and then submit. You can choose the size, style, and finish of your framed art. I chose a 18′ x 29′ with a… Continue reading

TXT Expressions Review and Giveaway

Disclaimer-300x152

Today’s review is from TXT Expressions. TXT Expressions are super cute text lingo band aids. With a three year old and a sometimes 2 year old, my little brother-in-law we go through band aids. They play and fall, get scrapes and cuts. A simple band aid and a little neosporin and bam they are good to go. We go through at least three or four band aids a day from them falling off, pulling them off or wanting a different character. As soon as they came in my babies were so excited. Below is what we received in the… Continue reading

Hello and welcome to our review of the day. We received the chance to test Crunchies, a freeze-dried fruit. We received a bunch of different flavors to test out. Crunchies are picked at the most prime time, undergo a freeze-drying and in the end you are left with a fruit that has a great color, taste and nutritional value. They taste amazing and I thought I wouldn’t like the freeze-dried fruit because sometimes when you pick it up at the local market it’s not that good or it’s really sour. I have tasted a few from our local markets… Continue reading
