Review and Giveaway: BG Alligator Pattern Shoulder Bag

Where to get: Amazon ($97.67 - currently on sale for $35.97)

Amazing quality, very fashionable and surprisingly capacious for its medium size. 

I have to say that the bag looks much better in person than it does in the pictures in this listing. It's very soft and doesn't have this nasty fake leather smell some other bags have. It's very nicely designed too, with two kinds of straps - one in a chic snake print that contrasts the bag's color nicely, and one long shoulder strap made out of material similar to the bag itself (the print is smaller, but the color is the same). 

There are 5 additional compartments in total. 4 are on the inside - one zipper compartment on the back wall, two open compartments on the front wall, and one long zipper compartment in the middle. There is also one zipper compartment on the outside of the bag.That gives you plenty of space and ways to organize your bag. 

The handbag is big enough to fit 3 hardcover books (I checked), wallet, phone, bunch of pens, some makeup and keys. It's very well made - sewn seamlessly and with nice golden accents throughout. To me, this is more of a semi-casual look. I wear it with my summer dresses and jeans+blouses combos, but I wouldn't wear it to the office or with just a plain t-shirt, as it just wouldn't match well. It's very eye-catching and glam.

For Your Child's Nursery: Adorable Smiley Face Rainbow Sound-Activated Lamp!

Where to get: AMAZON ($10.98 + free shipping with Prime)

This is a very cute sound sensor lamp for your baby's nursery. It's colorful and very happy-looking. My daughter loves it. She's 14 months now and rarely wakes up at night anymore, but when she does, she sometimes gets scared and needs to be comforted. This lamp works great in two ways - when my daughter makes a sound (doesn't have to be crying or anything loud, the lamp turns on when there's some louder shuffling), the light coming from the lamp is enough to soothe her and calm her down. If that doesn't work, because she's in pain or just woke up from a nightmare, the light helps me get to her bed to comfort her, without turning the brighter lamp on and waking her entirely.

The light isn't too bright, it's a standard nursery night-time light, so it only offers enough brightness for you to be able to see what you're doing without running into things, or waking baby up. The sensor is pretty sensitive, sometimes the lamp turns on when I turn around in bed (I sleep in the same room with my daughter), but because the light is so dimmed, it doesn't disturb my daughter's sleep.

It turns on for 30 seconds at a time. When it's in night mode, it's activated by sound. If needed, you can also tap the top and it will come on, too. Same during day time - you can activate it by tapping. I think it's super useful and I really like the design. It's multi-colored, so it captures baby's attention. My daughter often picks it up just to carry it around and play with it.

It's made out of plastic and runs on batteries. There aren't any sharp edges or pieces that could fall off and be swallowed by your child, so it's safe to place it in your baby's crib and let your child play with it.

I received a free sample of the product for evaluation purposes. All thought and opinions are my own.


You can win one lovely lamp for your baby!

Review & Giveaway: Adeline Anti Aging Moisturizer Cream

Adeline Anti Aging Moisturizer Cream ($35.25) - Buy on Amazon | Visit website

Top-shelf quality ingredients and really amazing results after using for only one week! I'm very impressed with this anti aging moisturizer!

I can't tell you how many beauty products I've tried in the past year - I've used tons of serums, oils, moisturizers and creams - but sadly only a handful of them proved to be worth the money. The majority of the products turn out to be very disappointing and ineffective. The Adeline moisturizer is a true gem among skin care products, though. I love everything about it - its consistency, the peppermint-y, natural fragrance, its silky smooth texture, the way it makes my skin feel and look.. it's all truly amazing. This product is now part of my daily routine.

I'm in my early 30s now and my skin used to be really nice and smooth until I had my baby daughter in February of 2014. Since then all the sleepless nights and exhaustion have been taking a huge toll on my body and health. I've noticed dark circles under my eyes and more and more wrinkles every day. I made it my mission to not only improve my appearance, but also work on the health of my skin. I've been trying to come up with a set skin-care routine that would rejuvenate and nourish my skin, but it really hasn't been easy to find the right products. I am still far from being completely satisfied with my daily routine and I'm still experimenting, trying to find good quality, natural and healthy products that I can actually afford.

That being said, the Adelaine moisturizer is one product I can honestly get behind. It feels very luxurious on my skin, it goes on silky smooth and absorbs very fast. You can really feel the moisture lock in your skin. It improves the elasticity of your skin and the overall appearance of it. I can apply a liberal amount of it to my under-eye areas and it doesn't irritate the skin there, nor cause any breakouts. It gently tightens your skin, without the dry and uncomfortable feeling some other anti-aging products cause. It isn't sticky or oily and it smells very refreshing, thanks to the peppermint oil (I just love this smell!).

I love that it's made with top-quality ingredients, such as shea butter, witch hazel extract and green tea extract. The formula seems to be working just great for me, and I have noticed some improvement in my skin tone and some smoothing out of the wrinkles around my eyes. It's a powerful but very gentle, non-irritating moisturizer.

I received a sample for evaluations purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I highly recommend this product!

Two winners will get this amazing Anti Aging Moisturizer Cream!
