Enrich Your Nails with Color From Dr.'s Remedy


Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish is the only nail polish that is found over the counter and free of harmful toxins. Their nail polishes were created by two doctors to help fight brittle, color-stained nails and are great for people who suffer from chemical allergies and fungus. Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish is also great for pregnant women and children because of being free of toxins. All of their nail polishes are enriched with Tea Tree Oil, Vitamins, and Wheat Protein. 

I loved Dr.'s Remedy Nail Polish! Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have a huge collection of nail polish, but none have been as awesome as Dr.'s Remedy. When I put the first color on I was surprised at how much color it actually had. I only needed one coat and because of that, it dried super fast. One measly little coat had my nails looking beautiful! Another great thing about Dr.'s Remedy Nail Polish is that they are extremely easy to apply and have the perfect consistency. 

The colors I had the opportunity to try were Youthful Yellow, Grateful Grape, and Hopeful Hot Pink. I loved the gorgeous colors and I especially loved the names. The Youthful Yellow is a mix between a lemon color and banana color with a matte finish. Grateful Grape is obviously a grape color but with tons of shine and just a touch of shimmer. Hopeful Hot Pink is a Hello Kitty type pink with a lovely shine. My favorite color out of the three was the Grateful Grape, of course, but they looked absolutely gorgeous when used together.. 

Dr.'s Remedy has a spectacular amount of beautiful nail polish colors to choose from as well as a base coat, cuticle oil, moisturizing nail treatment, top coat, and acetone-free nail polish remover. Each bottle of nail polish can be purchased for $17 directly from their website. I would highly recommend checking them out, especially if you have brittle nails like me. Connect with Dr.'s Remedy on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the newest colors, tips, and promotions.

Slice With Style




Recently, I was given the opportunity to try out two products from Slice; the Safety Cutter and the Y-Peeler. The Slice Safety Cutter is made to replace your ordinary everyday scissors and safety knives. This product works great for those annoying plastic packages that I can never seem to get open even with scissors. 
the Slice Safety Cutter also works great for cutting through tape on packages, shrink wrap, and many other things. I absolutely love this little gadget. It hardly takes up any space which is something that is very important to me. 
The first time I used the Safety Cutter, I was a little confused because you can hardly see the tiny ceramic blade sticking out. The blade sticks out from the plastic about one millimeter so I really didn't see it at first. I was seriously thinking how in the world a piece of plastic would be able to cut through everything it claims. Once I figured out that there was an actual blade and used it, it worked great. The Slice Safety Cutter has a built in magnet, key-ring hole, and a non-slip finish that works great for both right and left handed people. 

The next item I tried from Slice was the Y-Peeler. We don't normally peel any veggies or fruits in this house since most of the nutrients are found in the skins but we do peel citrus fruits for obvious reasons. I tested the Slice Y-Peeler out on an orange and it worked wonderfully even though it didn't seem that it would since there is no metal on this peeler at all. 
The Y-Peeler is recommended by the Cooking Club of America because of it's super sharp ceramic blade that can peel through pretty much anything. This peeler is designed to be light weight and fit into little hands and big hands. 

The main goal of Slice products is to help you slice with beauty, style, and grace. Most of their products have ceramic blades which are known for their durability among many other things. The ceramic blades will never rust and will always stay sharp. I would definitely recommend Slice products to everyone. Their modern designed products get the job done effectively while looking super stylish. Check out their awesome new beauty products! I can't wait to try out a set of those tweezers since my boyfriend keeps bending mine (brat). Connect with Slice on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the latest product releases and promotions.

Chobani Greek Yogurt Review


Hate is a very strong word but it's the ONLY word I can think of that emphasizes my dislike for Greek Yogurt. My daughter, however, loves it and the fact of the matter is, I love to feed it to her. I know that Greek Yogurt is healthier for her than regular old yogurt but another reason I feed it to her is because it's a lot less messy. I'm not exactly sure why I don't like Greek Yogurt; maybe it's the consistency or maybe it's because it tastes like sour cream to me, who knows but I always get crap for not liking it. I guess it really doesn't matter what I think of it since I've never heard of another person disliking it as much as I do. Either way, I figured I'd give Chobani Greek Yogurt a try.


Chobani sent my family and I a case of their Greek Yogurt with flavors like Raspberry, Black Cherry, Strawberry, Peach, Mango, Apple Cinnamon, Blood Orange, Low-fat Strawberry Banana, Honey, Pineapple, Low-fat Pineapple, Low-fat Mango, Low-fat Passion Fruit, Vanilla, Blueberry, Lemon, Pomegranate, Low-fat Plain, and Non-fat Plain. They also have Chobani Champions which is Greek Yogurt made just for kids in flavors like Wild Berry, Honey-nana, Vanilla Chocolate Chunk, and Orange Vanilla. Chobani Champions Greek Yogurt comes in a 3.5 ounce size and is packed with vital nutrients required for your child's growth and development. I personally can't say which was my favorite for obvious reasons (don't even tell me that I should have tried them because I did and my taste buds have not morphed since the last time I tried Greek Yogurt) but the boys I babysit and my daughter loved them. My daughter actually saw me open the box and instantly reached for a cup of Chobani (Greek Yogurt is one of her favorite things to eat).

Chobani strains their yogurt to remove excess liquid which results in a higher protein content and a thick and creamy Greek Yogurt. Thickeners, gelatin, or stabilizers are never used and only milk from cows not treated with rBST is. All of their Greek Yogurt is packed with only the highest quality fruits, tons of calcium, vitamin D, and five live and active cultures including three strains of probiotics.

One of the cool things about Chobani Greek Yogurt is that 10% of their profits are used to donate to a variety of causes by way of their Shepard's Gift Foundation. Chobani also has a huge collection of recipes for use of their Greek Yogurt other than the norm!

Would I recommend Chobani Greek Yogurt? Honestly, yes I would. Just because I'm not a fan (and I really wish I was because of the health benefits) doesn't mean you won't be either and the kids absolutely loved it. Hey, if the I can get the kids to eat something healthy, I'm all for it! You can connect with Chobani on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to ensure you don't miss any coupons or awesome recipes.

Goose Creek Candle Company


I'm sure by now, many of you know that Fall is my favorite time of the year. From the warm days and crisp cool nights to the campfires, fall festivals, pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider slushies, apple picking, pumpkin carving, colorful leaves, and anything in between, but one of my most favorite things about fall is the great smelling candles. I wait all year long for the apple spice, pumpkin spice, and apple cider candles! Usually when fall arrives I have at least a couple candles burning throughout the house but with Goose Creek Candles, all that was needed was one measly little candle to stink up my house with the deliciousness of Apple Spice. 

I have been burning this Goose Creek 22 ounce American Heirloom Apple Spice candle in my dining room for about two weeks now and it has literally been smelling up my whole house. Sometimes it seems that with certain brands of candles the scent fades after a couple days, but not with Goose Creek; it's just as strong as the first day I lit it. In fact, just a couple days ago, the mom of the two boys I babysit walked in the back door and instantly started raving about my Goose Creek Candle. First thing out of her mouth was, "it smells amazing in here, is that coming from that one candle?" I think I know of a good gift for her now!

The 22 ounce American Heirloom Candle from Goose Creek has two wicks and a burn time of about 125 hours. I have been burning mine from about 6pm-1am for the past 2 weeks and it's just now hitting the halfway mark. 


Goose Creek Candles have been hand poured in Kentucky since 1998 and are known to be the most fragrant candles around. All of their candles are smokeless, clean burning, and of great quality. Goose Creek has an abundance of scents to choose from in many different sizes and styles. Would I recommend Goose Creek Candles? You bet, especially over those candles with the jewelry in them. You may find cheap jewelry in your candles but Goose Creek Candles are way more fragrant and burn a lot longer. 

Right now, Goose Creek Candle Company is celebrating 100,000 fans on Facebook and for a limited time you can get one free candle with the purchase of two others. Just use the code 1209 to redeem this offer and be sure to connect with them on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest sales and promotions! FYI, all their fall scents are out right now so be sure to check them out!

Enter to win a 16 ounce American Heirloom Goose Creek Candle in the scent of your choice below before October 4th! All entries will be verified. Good Luck!

Pamper Your Pores With Mally Beauty


Mally Beauty has me in love and completely spoiled right now and I'm absolutely loving it, however, I'm scared our love affair will end sooner then I'd like. I have never tried cosmetics outside of the regular brands you would find at a drug store until I became a blogger. I never thought there would be much of a difference so what was the point in spending the extra money especially since it wasn't in my budget? Boy was I WRONG! Mally Beauty has my head spinning and my heart skipping beats. I recently got the opportunity to try Mally Beauty's Evercolor Poreless Face Defender and the Volumizing Mascara and I can't rave enough about both of these products.

Mally Beauty's Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is made to diffuse the look of pores, minimize fine lines, and protect your makeup all day long while giving you a matte finish without the crusty, dry powder look. Let me just say that all of Mally Beauty's claims for the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender turned out to be 100% true for me. My makeup looked radiant and flawless while keeping my big pores hidden from even myself (my biggest critic).  Not only did my makeup look great but it maintained that look all day long. I never had to reapply anything! 


The Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is super easy to apply and it doesn't feel like you just lathered on a ton of grease to your face like I originally thought it would. All you do is put a small amount on your Japanese Sponge (came with the product) and dab it on all the areas you would normally apply powder. It's that simple and it feels great! I thought for sure it would make me break out but it didn't. The Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is made to allow your skin to breath without clogging your pores with oil. It actually helped keep my normal shine under control as well. Usually after a couple hours of wearing makeup, my skin starts to get this awful, greasy looking glow, but not with Mally Beauty's Evercolor Poreless Face Defender. 


The next product I tried out from Mally Beauty was the Volumizing Mascara. The unique formula of the Volumizing Mascara helps create the look of gorgeous, full, and luxurious lashes. The combination of natural waxes, powders, and a unique brush gives lashes an instant boost. I am a sucker for a great mascara and some might say I even have a slight obsession with it. I never thought anything of this product at first glance but as soon as I tested it out, I was sold. Mind you, I don't have the greatest eyelashes to begin with but Mally Beauty's Volumizing Mascara made me feel like I had the best eyelashes in the world. My eyelashes looked instantly fuller with no unwanted clumps! The best thing about the Volumizing Mascara, however, was the fact that it didn't crumble off at the end of the day leaving little black specs under my eyes. I have never tried a mascara that didn't crumble off until now. 


If the rest of Mally Beauty's makeup is anything like the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender and the Volumizing Mascara, I would honestly throw away every piece of makeup in my drawer and replace it with Mally Beauty products. I can't wait to try out more makeup from this line and I would honestly recommend Mally Beauty to everyone. Mally Beauty products can be purchased directly from their website, QVC, or Amazon. Connect with Mally Beauty on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the latest and greatest additions to the Mally Beauty family and check out their YouTube channel for tips on how to apply their flawless makeup!

Save Oliver James Giveaway!!!

Sweet N Sour Deals has put together a giveaway in honor of Oliver James, a rescued Golden Retreiver Puppy.
Oliver James was rescued before he was even born by Laura Kody.
At 8 weeks old Oliver suddenly lost his ability to walk, and Laura began taking him to vets to find a cure. They saw 9 vets and spent thousands of dollars on testing, but no one knew what his condition was or could give them much hope for his survival. Finally, They saw a specialist and he was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Osteo-dystrophy.
Over the past year she has tried every treatment available for him and watched him go through recurirng bouts of joint swelling, lameness, and pain so terrible that he couldnt bear to be touched.
A few months ago he started screaming when she touched his mouth, and at that time the vet diagnosed him with his second condition, Craniomandibular Osteopathy.
Over the next few weeks his jaw went through similar bouts of swelling, pain, infection, and calcification that his legs had felt before. Finally his jaw closed shut permanently. He has been unable to eat, drink, pant, chew, or even lick his lips ever since. Laura bottle feeds him 6-10 times a day to keep his weight up, but despite her many efforts he weighs only a very scary 15.4 pounds. To put that in perspective, his littermates all weigh around 60. His toenails have begun to fall out from malnourishment.
You can read Oliver's Full Story HERE
Laura also posts daily updates on the Help Save Oliver James Facebook page HERE
In honor of Oliver James, we have had some amazing blogs, including us, donate prizes to spread the word about Oliver James.
The prizes include...
Philips Satin Perfect Epilator $99.00 ARV

A Diamond Candle ARV $25.00
A Homemade Flower Wreath
And a set of 3 Rosaries!

"Let's Have a Party" with Red Cup Living

I have to be honest; when I heard about Red Cup Living I almost cried out in agony because the most annoying song popped in my head. I know most people love the song "Red Solo Cup" by Toby Keith but not this girl. Don't get me wrong, I use those cups and I've played beer pong with those cups, but really? Is it really necessary to write a song about "Red Solo Cups"? That song just gets under my skin and makes me want to pull my hair out every time I hear it! I figured I would check out Red Cup Living anyway and see what the deal was but I swore if it had anything to do with that stupid song, I would "X" out instantly. 
By the time I had snooped through the whole Red Cup Living website I was extremely excited and intrigued. Their products would be perfect for cook-outs, beer pong, tailgating, and watching OSU football all by myself! (Yeah, yeah, yeah; I'm one of those crazed Buckeye fans that most of the nation hates, life goes on.) Red Cup Living has the coolest line of reusable red cups that look exactly like the Red Solo Cups. Obviously their signature item is the 16 ounce Icon Cup but they also have a 32 ounce cup, shooter cups, and wine cups. The Red Cup Living wine glass is my favorite! In fact, I'm drinking some Pinot Grigio out of it right now (it's been a rough day with a teething tot). Red Cup Living doesn't just have red cups though; they have tons of cool apparel and accessories, as well, i.e. magnetic bottle openers, coasters, trucker caps, and t-shirts.

We hosted a party at the beginning of the summer and bought a huge bag of Red Solo Cups from Costco. Needless to say, we had a ton left. I literally found about 4 or 5 of those cups sitting around everyday for two months straight and it drove me absolutely insane! Every single person that came by used one of those cups and left it laying out after they had parted. By the time we only had about 20 cups left; people that would visit started putting them in the sink to be washed. Why you ask? My fiancé just couldn't part with his trusty old Red Solo Cups so he made people save them. He seriously has one sitting on our Primo water tank 24/7. We have other glasses in the house; why not use one of those? Who knows his reasoning but I figured if I could get him a Red Cup Living reusable red cup, he would be happy to let the Solo Cups disappear. 
My daughter even likes Red Cup Living!

I'm happy to say that it worked. He loves his new Red Cup Living cups! The cups are extremely durable (trust me, I've already dropped one) and thick with double walled plastic so you don't have to worry about crushing them and super easy to wash which is very important to me.There's still a red cup sitting up on our water tank but at least it's one I can quickly wash for him or pop right into the dishwasher on a regular basis. My 
fiancé also got a Red Cup Living trucker hat and a heavy duty, pre-shrunk, 100% cotton t-shirt that he absolutely loved until the dang puppy decided to jump up, grab it, and rip it to shreds. Thankfully he still has his super cool trucker hat that he can sport around. I'm still mad about it though, GRRR... I also received a T-shirt from Red Cup Living that is super stretchy and comfortable. The women's t-shirts are 100% combed ring-spun cotton jersey with a set-in collar of 1x1 Baby Rib with front cover stitch and satin label.

Red Cup Living's Story
Red Cup Living was born in 2007 It all began with family. At the end of the day, when everyone was arriving home from work or school, they would stop by and have a Red Cup. Regardless of what was in the Red Cup, it was a sign of a fun, spontaneous get-together; a time to talk, connect and just be together. Soon the neighbors started to come over to meet each other and new friendships were born. After a while, it became clear that the Red Cup was a way of life, a philosophy so to speak. (Just ask Toby Keith) 




So, here we go… the goal was to bring the Red Cup Living philosophy and way of life to everyone. Life is busy and it’s easy to forget that the real value is in connecting with people we love, having a good time, and creating unforgettable moments with them. This is what Red Cup Living is all about.

Are you ready to be part of the Red Cup Living philosophy? Enter below via Rafflecopter for your chance to win the coolest tailgating prize pack! One winner will receive (4) 18oz Icon Cups and (1) Magnetic Bottle Opener, perfect for those football parties!

Artisan Marshmallows at 240 Sweet


I'm usually not a picky eater at all when it comes to sweets but two things I CAN NOT stand is marshmallows and caramel. YUCK! It's definitely not the flavor that bugs me; it's the texture that makes me want to gag. When I was offered up the chance to try 240 Sweet's Artisan Marshmallows I was extremely skeptical. It took me a couple days to muster up the guts to try out these gourmet marshmallows so when I finally did, I was kind of proud of myself. They weren't as weird (as far as the texture goes) as I thought they would be and I could actually eat them without gagging and heaving all over the place. In fact they were actually pretty good! 


The first 240 Sweet Artisan Marshmallow I tried was the Biscoff Crunch Marshmallow. The Biscoff Crunch Marshmallow is coated with biscoff cookies and has a swirl of biscoff spread in it. The flavor was awesome but the crunch made it even better. I shared this one with the kids that I babysit and I was actually quite surprised by the fact that they wanted more (kids are super picky eaters)! Hmmm... on to the next one I guess!


The Ghost Pepper S'more Marshmallow pretty much almost choked me to death even though I love spicy foods. I only took a small bite at first and within seconds my whole mouth and throat were on fire! I chugged some water (yeah, milk is better for that but not when you're lactose intolerant) and for some reason kept eating it. It honestly had great flavor and the fire just made it more fun to eat. When my fiance returned home from work I surprised him by shoving a tiny piece into his mouth which resulted in him spitting all over me and wiping his tongue off on my shirt (not sure what good that does). He is a HUGE sissy when it comes to spice AND flavor as he seems to enjoy very bland foods over anything. The Ghost Pepper S'more Marshmallow is obviously infused with ghost peppers and is topped with graham crackers and chocolate chips. 


The last 240 Sweet Artisan Marshmallow I tried was the Sweet Corm Marshmallow. This marshmallow is flavored with caramel and dusted with sweet corn. Sounds like something you would feed to a horse, huh? I thought so, too, but it actually was quite delicious. Maybe it reminds me of caramel popcorn? I'm not exactly sure but it was awesome! 

I must say, Chef Alexa Lemley is a freaking genius with these marshmallows! 240 Sweet has an outrageous menu of gourmet marshmallows sure to curb anyone's sweet tooth and all of their marshmallows are hand crafted in Columbus, Indiana from all natural and organic ingredients. Most of their ingredients are found locally from Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio but the vanilla extract is made from organic Tahitian beans. 240 Sweet also uses minimal packaging so no extra resources are wasted and all of the marshmallows come in different sized packages to meet the needs of the consumer. 


Every month Chef Alexa Lemley from 240 Sweet creates a mystery flavor and also features a few new themed flavors for their Marshmallow of the Month Club. Most of the marshmallows featured are limited editions. For $25.00 a month you can enjoy three treat bags of each flavor and trust me, these marshmallows are worth every penny! This months flavors are Strawberry Hazelnut Swirl, Peppermint Lemonade Twist, and Blueberry with Goat's Milk Cajeta (Mexican Caramel). Sound intriguing? Check out 240 Sweet for yourself and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the coolest new flavors and promotions!

FYI, 240 Sweet also has an amazing variety of gifts to choose from like the "I Love Marshmallows" Tee, Bourbon Barrel Aged Vanilla, Vanilla Sugar, Vanilla Sea Salt, Coffee Mugs, and Sample Packs. I am dying to sport one of their Tee's and try some of that Vanilla!
