Recently I was shopping for body butters as a gift, and I was becoming very frustrated by prices and selection. My go-to place is always Bath and Body Works, but the person I was shopping for doesn’t have the same lust for Bath and Body Works products that I am. I looked up other specialty stores. One boutique looked promising, the price was 18.50. That made me sick. Then I looked at shipping prices. From this particular store there were two options, one was 10.00 and the other was 50.00 Yes. You read that correctly; 50.00. For shipping. For shipping one jar of body butter that weighs less than a can of soda.
Out of pure frustration, I turned to the only help I could think of: Facebook. I sent out a blast and asked where they shop for body butters. Someone finally gave an answer; Quince.
Quince specializes in Body Butters. They only make body butters, and that is their commitment.
From the website:

Quince is committed to becoming a premier manufacturer of body butters through careful research, new product development and quality manufacturing with the goal of making Quince a respected household brand name
Relaxing with chamomile and Lavender is probably my favorite scent. It has Peach, Rose, Lavender, Vanilla, and Tonka Bean, which makes it sooo feminine and nice.
Back to the original problem. The prices are great. This product feels and smells fantastic. These would make awesome gifts for the girly girl in your life or anyone else who can use a little pampering. This is a boutique level product available at the Target price and is my go-to shopping for body butters.

Four years ago my best friend was diagnosed with Celiac disease. A gluten intolerance. It is really an eye opener. If she eats even a little bit of wheat, she can die of anaphlaxis. It was a huge lifetstyle change that she had to make.
When we first found a pizza parlor in our home town that makes pizza with gluten free crust, she ate almost a whole pizza by herself because she missed bread so much!
Luckily for her and others, it is easier to find things without gluten in them
When many people find out that they are gluten-free, one of the most common things they miss eating is pizza! This oft-wheat filled dinner delight is one of many things that is hard to replace. Gallo Lea Pizza Kits aims to change that with their easy to use, gluten-free pizza kits! Krista at Savory Savings recently had the chance to review the Gallo Lea Gluten-Free Pizza Kits, be sure to check out her full review.
A few of the best things about Gallo Lea:
No high-fructose corn syrup
No artificial colors
No trans-fats and no cholesterol!
In addition to the gluten-free varieties, Gallo Lea also offers a whole wheat and low sodium option. And they offer fundraising options – something a bit different than your usual wrapping paper sale!
Would you like to win a three pack of Gallo Lea Gluten-Free Pizzas? Use the Giveaway Tool below to enter. This giveaway is open to US Residents only, ages 18 and older. It will run from May 22, 2013 at 5 PM CST through June 3, 2013 at 8 PM.

I received one copy of the text from the publisher. Despite any compensation or complimentary a items the opinion here is honest and my own.
A male friend of mine once gently lectured me about Cosmo magazine. He described it as “How to manipulate your spouse.” I wonder what he would think about the book I am reviewing now For Women Only, Revised and Updated Edition: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men By Shaunti Feldhahn
Other men I know said there is a lot of truth to the things in this book. I have been told that men can relate to at least one thing in this book.
I thought this was a pretty brilliant book. It is a short, quick read, which I personally think is great with these kind of self-help books. I have a short attention span and I quickly lose interest if something is too wordy or drawn out.
This book was written by a woman so she is able to understand how the information might be perceived by a woman and addresses that.
While simply reading a book definitely won’t solve every problem in a relationship. For Women Only I, can be a helpful tool for opening up new conversation and discussions between couples. I think this book could be helpful in plutonic male/female relationships as well if properly applied.
I believe that the best relationships are ones rooted in complete, and sometimes brutal honesty. I feel like this book is great for helping people understand one another.
I would also like to read the other books in this collection, like “For Men Only,” to see if I relate to the research findings in that text as well.

There are days when you just don’t have time to clean up properly.
A few days ago a friend and I had an opportunity to go see Star Trek Into Darkness at a local movie theatre. We decided to go to a noon showing to avoid crowds and I only had a little time to get ready. So I decided that was the perfect time to try out my dry shampoo.
Batiste Dry Shampoo is a quick and convenient way to feel clean and refreshed.
Batiste offers an instant fix by revitalizing greasy, dull and lifeless hair. Batiste thickens thin fly-away hair and adds texture and body for that easy style solution. Simply spray it on and comb it out.
The product is super easy to use, you just shake can , Spray evenly over hair, massage into scalp with your fingers, let sit a few moments and brush out! That is it!
I have used other dry shampoos and this one works much, much better. Other brands left my hair feeling dirtier and greasier than before I put the product in!
While this is an awesome product, it isn’t a substitute for a proper shower, and there is only so far it can go, if you skipped a shampoo for more than a couple days, don’t rely on this product to make everything better. If you just need a little kick to feel fresh than this is just the ticket.
Pure Beauty 2010 – Silver Award to Batiste Shimmer
Hair Magazine Awards 2010 – Best Dry Shampoo – Blush

- In the process of being Non-GMO Certified and have a strong commitment to not using bioengineered ingredients.

The Juppy “Momentum” is a solution to a previously recognized but unsolved challenge for parents of babies beginning to walk. Babies strong enough to begin walking but not strong enough to walk alone. The Juppy builds confidence in your baby and teaches balance while you maintain your natural posture, eliminating the grueling task of hunching over while teaching your baby to walk.
Baby walkers with wheels can create dependence and may even delay walking.
Traditional walkers are dangerous because they tip over. The Juppy is different in that the child uses his own strength to walk. He has to stand up on his own.
Mom or Dad just hold on to the straps for safety.
■Longer Adjustable Straps That Work For Even The Tallest Person
■One size fits all
■Free Carrying bag
■Personalization available with Child’s name or family last name
■Can hold babies up to 35lbs
■Comes in 3 colors: Blue, Black and Pink
I do not have children of my own, I am however, a proud aunt! I gave this to my sister. She was very hesitant to try it at first. She never used walkers of any kind. Ma
She thought this was the perfect item for the over protective mom!
My sister pointed out something I hadn’t thought of, make sure you supervise your baby while this is out. If a parent left it on their child while playing it could get looped around their neck. It would need to be used and taken off.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
