~Review~ ABC Train Decal

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

We love wall decals. Who doesn't love something that is inexpensive and easy to remove when you want a change. My son loves trains and he is now learning his ABC's. He is two and so I knew this was the perfect age for this ABC Train Decal. So I got one for his bedroom.

The decal itself is very easy to install. You need to go slow but peel off, then press where you want it to be. Smooth with the included plastic tool (That's awesome). Next slowly peel off the outside layer smoothing as you go. Make sure to take it slow and steady with this part. After you do the train you will do the same with the letters.

I love that you have your choice from a ton of colors and fonts for the train, smoke and lettering. You can pretty much match it to any color scheme or room style. I chose a Dark Blue because my son collects Thomas the Train and I knew it would match. It arrive in a tube with the train, lettering and a small sample. Ours was an adorable owl. I actually am going to use that in the kitchen if my daughter doesn't steal it.

The only downfall I can see to this particular decal is that it is not reusable. It is fully removable though and will last for years! You can get one of your own on aluckyhorseshoe Etsy webpage.

~Review & Giveaway~ The Organic Face

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

What fun, new makeup from The Organic Face. Who doesn't look new makeup? Raise your one? I quite agree. New makeup is always a good time. The Organic Face is dedicated to creating pure, natural, chemical-free organic cosmetics and skincare products made from the finest active botanical ingredients and minerals. You can tell the wonderful quality the minute you open it.

I chose to try the Femme Fatale Eyeshadow Quad in Perfect Storm. It's a mix of silver, blue and green. I normally go for browns and neutrals so I thought it would be fun to try something new. I am allergic to alot of make up products so I was quite pleased that this one doesn't bother me at all. No itchy red eyes, just a lot of pretty color. I am certainly no makeup expert but it was simple to get a pretty look. The Organic Face Femme Fatale Eyeshadow can be applied wet or dry.

~Review~ Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

What a beautiful set this is, the Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set by Matcha DNA. I was so thrilled when it arrived at my house. It comes in a beautiful simple box with a magnetic closure that stores all of the ceremony set inside and a fact sheet abou Matcha Tea.

Your Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set comes with 1 oz of Organic Matcha Green Tea powder, a Handmade Matcha Green Tea Bowl, a bamboo tea whisk and green whisk holder and a bamboo spoon. This set is so finely made and the quality is excellent.

The tea you are able to make with this is exceptional. I actually bought a larger bag of Matcha DNA Green tea so I can use it more often. I just love the flavor of it, so strong. The whisk is perfect for this powder. I have to say I love this set, it's beautiful and a wonderfully made ceremony set that is perfect for beginners or someone who has used a tea ceremony set for years.

You can get your own Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set on Amazon.

~Review~Boardwalk Food Company Beer Bread Mix

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

Ok honestly I couldn't say one bad thing about Boardwalk Food Company Beer Bread Mix if I tried really really hard. Can you see me squinting here? Nope can't think of anything. Boardwalk Food Company offers a few different varieties of mixes. I chose Original and Boy was I happy with it. I am ready to try them all.

Making this bread was so simple. It's literally add beer and mix. That's it...nothing complicated, anyone could make this bread. The smell while it was baking was to die for good. I was ready to eat it the second it came out of the oven. It smelled heavenly!

The Original Beer Bread had a wonderful flavor to it. It was just delightful, with very light hints of beer. The texture of the bread was light and airy. We demolished the bread in minutes. Everyone was begging for more and asking when I could buy it again. Now in my house we eat well and fresh so for ANYONE to ask for a packaged anything was well seriously amazing. Every family member thought the Boardwalk Food Company Beer Bread Mix was to die for and it certainly will become a staple in our household.

The Boardwalk Food Company also offers Cornbread, Lemon Poppy Seed and Rosemary Sea Salt. Go check out the Boardwalk Food Company website.
