Love Mode Review & Giveaway

I was super excited when I learned I would be reviewing for Love Mode! Love Mode offers trendy junior's clothing that is sure to make you the envy of all the girls!

For review I was sent the Beachy Boardwalk Top in Strawberry Pink! This top is so cute! It's lightweight and very trendy! The colors are perfect for me. Not too bold, but not too drab! The fit is just right! I do like form fitting clothes, but the way this shirt hangs is very flattering!

I actually wear it a couple of different ways. I tie it tight in the back and wear it like a normal shirt while going out to eat. Then, for going out shopping or out around town, I tie it loosely and let it hang off one shoulder. That is my favorite way to wear it!

Love Mode offers TONS of trendy junior's clothing! I would love to try some of their junior's dresses! The Pretty in Polka Dots dress really caught my eye!

Overall, I give Love Mode two thumbs up! I'm sure I will be buying from them in the future! I'm very satisfied with their clothes and would totally recommend you shop there!

Fogless Shower Mirror Review & Giveaway

When I heard from The Shave Well Company that I would be reviewing their Fogless Shower Mirror, I was thrilled!

Obviously I don't shave my face, but I do take my makeup off in the shower. I never know if I got all my makeup off in there. I always end up getting out looking like a raccoon! Then, I have to clean my face again to get the rest that I couldn't see in the shower.

My husband does shave though. Being in the military, he has to shave every morning. He also has sensitive skin, so he has to have everything hot in the bathroom so he does tear his face up. He is constantly wiping off the mirror and using hot water from the shower to steam things up.

With the fogless shower mirror, both our problems are solved. I can see what I'm doing in the shower while taking off my makeup, and he can actually take a shower and shave without all the fuss!

How it works:
To get that truly for-free reflection with your Shave Well mirror, hold it under the shower stream for a few seconds to "warm it up" right before you shave. It's fog free simply my design! In the few seconds you hold it under the shower spray the temperature of the moist air and the mirror equalize to create a long lasting, truly fog free image fir the duration of your shower.

We both had awesome results with the mirror. It didn't fog up on either of us. I came out with a clean face and my husband came out with a very smooth, not torn up face! The only small problem we had was that our shower doesn't have tile in it. Which means that I couldn't suction it to the wall. Our walls are fiberglass and the suction cup just wasn't having any part of that. I have a shower caddie hanging from the shower head that has little hooks on it and that ended up working just fine!

The mirror is easily cleaned with a little drop of toothpaste and it is small enough to take with you wherever you go!
