Radiantly You! A Review!

I was contacted a month ago by a wonderful mama, Ashley Rainey, to try some products by a new company called Radiantly You.  She told me that it is a new company that promotes affordable, natural living.  I was excited to go to the website and learn all about the company and its products!

So who is Radiantly You?

“Built on the philosophy that organic and natural products should be available to everyone, Radiantly You has worked hard keeping their high quality natural and organic products at a reasonable cost. RY believes that organic/natural skincare products are better for people, the environment and especially our future.” (Company Website)

lsoap

I chose the All Natural Laundry Soap in Sweet Orange for my review.  As I was exploring the company’s website, I felt like a kid in a candy store.  I noticed that the laundry soap was not only affordable ($7.50), but there was really not much to this detergent at all!  Here are the ingredients:  Water, Handcrafted Castile Soap, Super Washing Soda, Borax (and then essential oil or fragrance oil, depending on if you get scented).  Yes.  I know what you are thinking. I can make this soap.  I sure can, and I have been the route of making all of my own cleaning supplies.  I have no time for that any more with 3 kids.  All in cloth diapers and all hand washed.  Yeah.  Instead of grating soap or boiling on the stove, I can order this.  And I was super excited to get it in the mail.

As I explored the website, I could not help myself.  There are so many affordable products that are actually natural!  So I made a little order of my own ;).  I ordered the All Natural Counter Spray, the All Natural Tub Scrub, Vanilla Mint Toothpaste, and the Tea Tree Shampoo Bar.  Just a little something, ha!  Actually, my order was around 20 bucks or so, not too shabby!  And ya’ll…just look at this soap…delicious looking!

ttsopSigh.

So I digress.  First thing is first, since I was given the laundry soap to review.  It works wonderful, just as a laundry soap should.  I am using it on all my laundry, including my cloth diapers and everything is coming clean.  :)  I think the hardest part about using a natural soap is to keep in mind that you DO NOT need to use a lot.  Using more than needed just wastes your soap, it does work!

Ashley also sent me this awesome lip balm as a little surprise.  Yet again, another product this company got right because it is my favorite!  It is so nice on my lips and not nasty and greasy.

As for my shopping spree?  That will be discussed in tomorrow’s post.  I am super in love with this company and since I want to make a second order, I feel like being generous.  Stay tuned for a chance to WIN something for yourself from Radiantly You!

A Great Family Day!

A couple of weeks ago I got an amazing prize on good seats to a Cleveland Cavaliers basketball game. I am not a fan of basketball and the kids couldn’t care less. But my husband absolutely loves it! Normally we can afford to take everyone to the game. I am terrified of heights which means we need lower lever seats to go. Those seats just happen to run around $100 each. To be honest, we don’t have an extra $500 laying around to spend on a couple hour long outing. My husband has never been to a game so you can imagine his excited. Finally something for him! We bought tickets to one of their Family Day games. So we got 5 tickets, 5 drinks and 5 hotdogs for less than half of what the tickets would normally cost.

We got the whole family decked out in Cavs gear, right down to the shoes. We headed to the game. It was disappointing that parking was $15! When it is $10 for every other event at The Q. But oh well.

When we got there, we got the kids their face painted, got their hair painted, the girls met and cheerleader who took a picture with them and we got our food and drinks. We made our way to our seats and we thrilled at how nice they were.

The game starts and Ariana instantly starts crying because she doesn’t like it and she wants to go home. I told her she will get over it! That daddy sat through Disney on Ice, Disney Live and Sesame Street Live for them, so she can sit through one game for him.

Then a cheerleader walked up the stairs and stood right next to me. Ariana light up right away. I told Ariana to come by me and say hi, so she did. I apologized to the cheerleader because I know she is really working but she was super nice and didn’t mind at all. She smiled at the girls and even stood their talking to them while cheering. It made Ariana’s week! She sat there with an ear to ear smile for the rest of the game.

The kids loved cheering on the team and getting involved in the game. They were yelling, waving, clapping and stomping their feet. They ended up having a blast.

I had Josh in my lap the whole game because he didn’t want to sit in his own seat. There was also a little boy behind us that took a liking to me. He was the about 18 months. The cutest and sweetest thing. He just kept touching me, playing with my hair, babbling, handing me stuff, you name it. I didn’t mind at all! Basketball really isn’t my thing so I was happy to sit there and entertain this little boy behind me and Josh. The little boys mother actually asked me how I got Josh to sit there so quietly and well behaved the entire game!!!!! That is a first! I told her honestly he is usually never this well behaved! I don’t know what happened. The little boy had fun photo bombing me a Josh and he was happy to have the interaction. His mother even thanked me at the end of the game for entertaining him!

1604537_725650037475325_342227768_n

In the end, it was an incredible night. We all had the blast. The Cavs won and it was literally their best game of the year. Couldn’t ask for more. We picked a great game to go too.

Family outings are great! Nothing is better than having fun with the kids. I am looking forward to going again.

Disney Live: Mickeys Music Festival – Review

Last month my family had the pleasure of attending Disney Live at The Q in Cleveland, Ohio. This had to be one of my favorite shows this year. It was a blast for the entire family.

When we first arrived, I picked up our tickets from the Will Call office and we headed to our seats. I suffer from anxiety attacks and I hate heights. It is even worst at The Q because of how steep the seating is in the upper levels. The upper level seats literally scare me half to death. It feels if I move one inch, I will fall to my death. We get to our seats and I discover I was given upper level seats for the review. Within 1 minute of sitting down, I was in a full blown anxiety/panic attack. If you have ever suffered from this type of attack you understand how horrible it can be and how it makes you feel like you are having a heart attack. I took one look at my husband and said “Let’s Go! No time to explain, just grab the kids and come one”. Once we got out of the seating area and to the lobby, I told them my plan. I surprised the kids and went and bought better tickets for the show. So we ended up 3 rows from the stage! The new seats were completely awesome! Now I can sit with ease and enjoy the show.

1557436_713203318719997_1902855440_n 1779673_713234092050253_636282548_n 1891259_713203262053336_166886609_n 1902074_713234688716860_317194895_n 10003421_713203705386625_163593131_n 10003458_713202982053364_22721082_n 10013955_713234895383506_515530660_n

The night was amazing for not only the kids for us as well. Of coarse the show started with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald. With them on stage, you know you can expect a good laugh. There is something incredible about enjoying these events with your kids and the characters we grew up with!

Ariana really loved the Aladdin part of the show. It was really her first time seeing anything to do with Aladdin and Princess Jasmine. The magic carpet was great too!

Me and Lily really enjoyed the Little Mermaid and her sisters! I was a sight to see. They did a beautiful job and it was amazing to watch on stage. My personal favorite part was watching Sebastian sing “If you like it, you better put a ring on it!” Some parts were a little over the top but all in all it was a great show.

Joshua was over the moon when the toys from Toy Story hit the stage.  His eyes were completely glued to the stage the whole time.

Having seats so close to the stage had some bonus added fun for the kids too! Like having “Asteroids” (Which were really just big beach balls) thrown out onto us for the audience to bounce around and play with. That was a huge hit with all of the kids and even the adults. It drew everyone in and made them feel like part of the show. The kids loved getting covered in confetti at the end of the show too! They even took some home lol. They made us wait an extra 10 minutes just to leave so that they could collect some of it to take home with us. Which means, I cleaned up confetti at home for almost a week.

Disney Live was really an incredible performance and we will be going back next year. If you haven’t been to a show, I highly recommend going to one. It is really a great time for people of all ages.

Cleveland Ohio: Disney on Ice, Let’s Celebrate Review

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Disney on Ice, Let’s Celebrate with the kids. We went to last years show so the girls were super excited to see this years. The best part about Let’s Celebrate is that there were so many characters involved! All of the girls favorite characters that weren’t in the show last year were there this year!

DSC01815DSC01787DSC01789

Let’s see what Let’s Celebrate was about!
(From their website)
Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! It’s one colossal party on ice, with all your favorite Disney friends! Enjoy a winter wonderland with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, a Halloween haunt with the Disney Villains, a Very Merry Unbirthday Party, a Royal Ball with the Disney Princesses and more in a magical medley of holidays, celebrations and festivals from around the globe. Come join the party when this spectacular ice show visits Cleveland!

BEFORE THE SHOW 

We arrived at The Q about half an hour before the show started. The girls were in their princess dresses with their tiaras and were ready to go! We stopped on the way to our seats and treated all the kids to a snow cone in an adorable Disney themed cup. We made it to our seats with 5 minutes to spare. As we waited for the show to start, we treated the kids to a Disney themed light up toy. Which I will regret later when Josh decides to repeatedly hit me in the face with it. :-)

THE SHOW STARTS

The moment we have all been waiting for, the show starts. Mickey and Minnie appear on the ice ready to start the party! They are joined by several friends and burst into song. As usual the show was absolutely magical. Singing, skating, dancing and fun. We enjoyed visits from our favorite Disney Characters including Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck, Tinkerbell, ALL the Princesses and Princes, All the characters from Toy Story, Jack Skeleton and all the best Disney Villains. It really was an unforgettable performance.

Ariana was thrilled that Cinderella was there this year. Lily couldn’t wait to see Ariel on the ice again. Joshua really loved the Toy Story act! He laughed and pointed as he watched one of his favorite dinosaurs skate around the ice. The kids literally had their eyes glued to the ice during the entire show. They didn’t even want to leave their seats during the break. We also had one of their friends with us and well “M” enjoyed everything! When we left we asked if every had fun, my girls yelled yes and “M” said that it was the greatest thing she had ever seen!

My husbands really enjoyed the performance by the Disney Villains. It was his favorite of the night. I must admit they did an amazing job with it. I personally really enjoyed the Toy Story performance. The entire show was wonderful! The singing, dancing, special effects and props were perfect. The performance was fantastic and magical without being overwhelmingly over the top. It was over too soon.

BOTTOM LINE

To sum it up. Let’s Celebrate was a magical show for the entire family. There really was something for everyone. No one went home disappointed. So grab the kids, get your tickets and head out to see a show that you will never forget.

*Although I received tickets to the show in exchange for my review. All opinions stated above are 100% mine.*
