Disclaimer: I received product in exchange for my honest review. ALL opinions are 100% my own!
The story:
A few weeks back I was given a chance to review an absolutely beautiful locket, from After browsing the website, I was in love! There are so many options to choose from.

After designing my locket, (Check out how to Build Your Own Locket!!)
I was impatiently waiting for it’s arrival. Upon delivery, I tore into the package and pulled out my locket. The package was wrapped well, and came in a little gift box. I removed my locket and was beyond happy. I opened the locket, and it exposed the gorgeous engraved pictures. I was over the moon. I haven’t taken the locket off since it arrived.

The Review:
As I’m sure you can tell from the above, I was very happy with the locket. Let me tell you why…

First, let’s talk about quality. The quality is OUTSTANDING! The etched picture and writing on the outside of my locket, are perfect. The pictures inside, turned out so well. The chain quality is fantastic. Very sturdy, and stylish.

The inner photos…I seriously can’t say enough about this feature. Long gone are the days of worrying about ruining the photos inside. I have taken several showers with this locket on, and it still looks brand new. Not spots, no tarnish…and it has no effect on the photos inside. YES, it’s LOVE!!

I also love that you can design your locket with their clipart selection. The option to completely customize your locket, is limitless. There are so many options to make your locket one of a kind!

On the SuperMom Inc 1-5 scale, this is a 5!! Quality, customer service, and creativity…5, 5, and 5!

I personally will be ordering from them again in the future!!

Easter Pops

What you need:
1 batch of Rice Crispy Treats
Popsicle sticks

When the treats are set, cut then into squares, and remove from pan. Insert a Popsicle stick in the bottom, the way you would an actual Popsicle. Frost, and cover with sprinkles and place on a sheet of wax paper. I recommend placing them in the refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. These are really cute and make great Easter treats. I've used cellophane and ribbon and wrapped them up for baskets.

How much water should I drink??

Have you ever wondered how much water you should drink, per day. 

Here's the simple way to figure it out:

Divide your weight in half. That's the number of ounces you should drink. 

120 divided by 2= 60 

Daily water intake should be 60 ounces.

PS: Have a hard time choking down all that H2O? Try slicing some fruit and tossing it in your water. It gives it a little flavor without all the calories or additives.

Make fancy ice cubes...

I hate watered down drinks. In the summer, I make iced tea ice cubes. 

In an ice cubes tray, place a slice of lemon. Top with iced tea and freeze. Add a couple of these to your iced tea, to keep it cold and avoid that watered down drink. 

You can also do this with other drinks. I have put berry slices in an ice cube tray, and topped with juice. I have also used cherries, which looks adorable. They are beautiful!

For grown up drinks, you can place an edible flower, a sprig of mint, a lemon, anything really, in the tray and top with water, freeze and use in mixed drinks. 

Making your towels soft again...

Want to make those old towels soft again? 
Or how about get rid of the chemicals in new towels? 
OR, get rid of that slightly funky smell that towels tend to get?

I've been doing this for years, and it's made my towels soft, absorbent and totally odor free... 

I recommend using warm water cycles for this. 

In your wash machine, add one cup of vinegar and one cup of baking soda. Run a normal cycle. When the cycle is finished, run a cycle of just water. Dry as usual. Your towels will be soft, absorbent and odor free.
