Cleava Review & Giveaway

I have found a wonderful product that I just absolutely adore. It's called Cleava! Cleava is a little piece of fabric with buttons on it that straps to your bra for a layered look.

Ok, I'm going to be honest. I do not have any cleavage. I am blessed to be in the IBTC. I'm sure some of you know what that means. I don't have the problem that some women do with their breasts falling out of shirts. BUT, I do not like low cut shirts. I have nothing to show off and don't want to amplify that with a low cut shirt!

Cleava has really helped me with that. I can wear the shirts I really like now with out having to put a whole other layer on underneath! Cleava simply snaps to your bra to cover your upper lady parts! No more pulling on shirts or adjusting things, just snap and go!

Also, for you ladies who like to show a little something something when you are out on the town, you can wear it during the day, and simply unsnap it in the evening and give yourself a whole new look in seconds! I personally found it very easy to get Cleava on and off with my shirt already on, but it can be done either way.

The original Cleava sells for just $19.95 and comes in a variety of different colors. If you are looking for something with a little more glitz, you can get the rhinestone or lace edged Cleavas for $24.95! I would really love to try the rhinestone ones! You can buy them now RIGHT HERE! Also, there is a discount for my readers! Use the code CGW5OFF to take $5.00 off any purchase at Cleava! That is an awesome deal! Take advantage!

Please watch this video and help spread the word about the hard times that the inventors of Cleava are going through! WZVN News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral

My overall impression of Cleave is fantastic! I can guarantee you that I will be buying more of these nifty little things!

Would you like to win a Cleava? Well, lucky for you, Cleava is offering a giveaway on my blog! One reader is going to win a White Cleava of their very own! Good luck!

John Paul Pet Review & Giveaway

Have you ever heard of John Paul DeJoria? Of course you have! He is the co-founder of Paul Mitchell system. He also has a line of pet products called John Paul Pet.

I love my dogs. They are family to me. We have Dodger who is a 4 year old German Shepard/Corgi mix, and Sassy who is a 3 year old Terrier mix. They are both rescue dogs and make me smile everyday. When it comes to bathing them, I have not found a product I really like...until now!

John Paul Pet sent me their Awapoochi Shampoo and Conditioner with Shine Memory to try out. I love this stuff! It smells so good! If it didn't say PET on the bottle, I'd use it myself. Although I still could, because it is tested on humans first! The shampoo and conditioner left my dogs smelling lovely, looking shiny, and feeling soft.

About the shampoo:

Our most luxurious shampoo incorporates Shine Memory, to reactivate the shine in your pet’s coat. Awapoochi Shampoo is a unique formula of Hawaiian Awapuhi extract and our exotic botanical blend that continues to bring back the shine for several days after the initial shampooing by simply brushing. Awapoochi is the only shampoo available with Shine Memory and it is Paraben and EDTA-free, which means it’s also more gentle for your pets.

About the conditioner:

John Paul Pet’s super-conditioning Awapoochi line combines the goodness and benefits of famous Hawaiian Awapuhi with botanical extracts that gently nourish and replenish pet’s dull, dry coats. Awapoochi Conditioning Rinse with Shine Memory renews the shine and luster of your pet’s coat between grooming by simply brushing.
  • NO Parabens or EDTA
  • Hawaiian Awapuhi extract adds extra conditioning
  • Shine Memory rejuvenates shine in your pet's coat
  • Tested on Humans First

Want to know where you can buy John Paul Pet products? Visit the store locator and find a store near you! I highly recommend trying the products for yourself. I know I wasn't disappointed!

Would you like the chance to win some John Paul Pet products? Well good, because you are getting that chance right now! Two of my lucky readers are going to win a Full Body & Paw Wipes and a sample size of the Tooth & Gum Wipes and the Ear & Eye Wipes! Good luck!

Zaggora Viva HotPants Review & Giveaway

My husband and I have been working out a lot this summer. We've been going to the gym, working out here at home and also going on bike rides here on Cape Cod. Before we started I didn't have any workout gear. It had been a really long time since I had worked out! Luckily, I got to try out the new Zaggora Viva HotPants!

Viva HotPants are specially designed pants that help women lose weight four times faster! They are designed with Celu-Lite technology fabric lining that enhance your natural body temperature to warm you up in the areas you want to target most. You know what those areas are! Thighs, bum, and legs!

Tested at the Chelsea School at Brighton University, HotPants are proven to use your body heat to increase energy expenditure before and after exercise by raising your core body temperature by up to 18%. Since you’re heating up and your body is using more energy, you are burning more calories; calorie burn increases by 26% in the hour after exercise with HotPants™ too.  As we all know, as you burn calories, you lose weight.

The lab tests also demonstrated that in just 30 minutes of exercise, women lost 4x more weight with HotPants than they did when doing the same exercise in standard workout clothes.
I can vouch! These things really make you sweat! The first time I wore them, I was in an air conditioned gym. At fist I didn't feel a difference. Then, I spent 20 mins running on the tredmill. Once I got off and sat down to lift a little wirght, I saw a little bit of sweat coming through the seams!

When we went on our bike ride, I also wore them. That day we biked 10 miles. We rode along the beach for a little while, it was beautiful! It was also a warm day. It didn't take long at all before I noticed the HotPants doing their job! They also made riding a bike more comfortable. There was no rubbing on the legs from peddling! 

When we got done with the ride and I took the HotPants off, I was soaked! I seriously had to change my underwear! They felt like they had just come out of the washer! I should have know that was going to happen. Before I took them off, there was sweat seeping from all the seams!
Needless to say, these HotPants really work! They have helped me lose a few pounds in the hardest places to lose the weight! I find the HotPants to be very comfortable. If you have ever worn a wet suit, the material is very similar to that. Also, a quick word of advice, make sure you aren't wet, or sweating when you put the HotPants on! It makes it very difficult! 

Now it's your turn! One of my lucky readers is going to win a pair of Viva HotPants! Get excited! These pants are great!

Headline Shirts Review

My husband owns so many funny shirts. He has picked them up from here and there over the years. People are always laughing and saying things to him about his shirts. That is why I was so happy to review for Headline Shirts!

Headline Shirts has a huge variety of great shirts. I had a hard time choosing a shirt for my husband. He of course left it up to me! In the end I decided on the Relentlessly Awesome shirt!

It's a simple shirt that says a lot! I think he's relentlessly awesome! The shirt fits him perfectly. The letters on the shirt are a good size too. Not too big, not too small. There have also already been people smiling at his shirt or telling him that they like his shirt. That's why he wears them! Perfect!

There are tons of shirts to choose from at Headline Shirts. They also have a few accessories. Here are a few items that I would also like to have.

Now it's your turn! One of my lucky readers is going to win their very own shirt from Headline Shirts! Good luck! CLICK HERE to enter!
