Announcing the 2016 Sweet Country Chaos #HolidayGiftGuide

Holiday Gift Guide 2

I know! I am so sorry but I have got to get going on this! I am doing a Holiday Gift Guide again this year! But with a twist! I want to feature the work at home mom’s out there! So if you are in Direct Sales, or own an etsy shop or are a crafter here is what I can offer you:

Product Review Post: Send me a product and I will do a post about it, the quality, and you and your “why”. The post will link back to your site and encourage people to follow you and check you out for the holiday’s! The product must be an unused FULL SIZE (no sample sizes as i can’t gauge off of a small one time use). The post will be promoted on social media and pinned!

Product Review & Giveaway:  So this would include the above (so send me a product and you will get the above).  PLUS if you want we can run a giveaway- you get to choose the prize so it can be a product (this will be the second product) or it can be a gift card/code to your site for the dollar amount of your choice. The giveaway will be done on the same post as the review. It will be promoted several times during the giveaway period and also promoted on one of the top giveaway sites- contestgirl.com. You will be responsible for shipping the prize directly to the winner.

We have 2 kids- a boy age 11, and a girl that will be 10 a few days after Christmas. Then there is my husband and I, so we can feature gifts for kids, him, her or home.

So as a WAHM you are asking- why is she requiring products: well because that is my payment. I to am a WAHM. It takes time to promote and network to further the reach and trust me it is worth it! I will do everything I can to try to get your products and brands out there!

Contact me today by filling out the form below.  I will need all products by November 1st! I would like to have all giveaways ended no later than December 1st to assure that products are received in time for Christmas!  I should mention I do sell Younique and Dove myself so I will not accept inquiries from those two companies.

Below is a list of companies I am talking to. If the Sponsor is in bold that means they are CONFIRMED (confirmed will be I have the review product in my hands):

ThirtyOne

Dove

Tyra

Monat

Nerium

Posh

Cassandra Creations

Jamberry

***PLEASE NO SOLICITATIONS- I AM NOT LOOKING TO JOIN A COMPANY JUST HELP YOU PROMOTE YOUR HARD WORK! ***

 

Qalo Rings #2015HolidayGiftGuide #Giveaway

Capture

This year I have been struggling with shopping for my husband. Why is it guys are the hardest to shop for? They never really say what they want, or what they do want is just more hunting gear that they don’t really need. I know, I know guys, you can never have to much hunting gears, guns, ammo, tactical gear or what ever.

I do have a great gift idea though. How many of your hubby’s do not wear the wedding rings? I mean lets face it. They do stuff where if that ring where to get caught it could mean a missing finger or worse. But now they have no excuse! Have you heard of Qalo? Continue reading

11145557_880412998660973_4180870266153499348_n

One of the important things to our family is living a natural and healthy style. I have slowly started getting into using essential oils and am still learning of all the wonderful benefits. One thing I use all the time is Lavender Oil. This is really a great multi use oil. It helps with hypertension,  headaches, it calms my son when he is having anxiety issues. But it can also help with this like burns, instect bites and more.

I am starting to learn about other oils though. Like Past Tense from DoTerra. It comes in an easy to apply roller to help with Tension Headaches. This may be what I need this holiday season. Being an LEOW the holidays are always stressful trying to figure out when to see family and arranging things like that. Continue reading

World Vision is a Christian Organization that helps people in 3rd World Countries. They also give you ways you can help as well. You can do something as simple as sponsor a child, but what if you could make an impact like giving a community some livestock, or help them build a well with fresh and safe water to drink.  Well thanks to the World Vision Gift Catalog, you can!

The World Vision Gift Catalog allows you to choose from something like giving a community a goat for milk, maybe some chickens for eggs, a pig, or a beehive for as low as $19. You can also choose to send some communities much needing clothing or even shelter! Your contribution will go to families in need in poverty stricken countries.

Little Passports Subscription Box ~Review

Ever wanted to take your kids around the world? Maybe go on an adventure full of exploring and mystery?

Little Passports (sponsor) allows you to do just that with out leaving your home! I love subscription boxes and this one is no different! It is fun and educational for your kid! Little Passports has 2 options. You can follow Sam & Sofia around the world, or just around the US. Each month your child will receive a package from Sam & Sofia that tells of new places and the adventures it comes with.

Our package came with a map of the world, a passport and a welcome letter from Sam & Sofia. The box was a really cute and surprisingly sturdy suit case!  I am pretty sure my kids were more excited about the suit case then anything else! They still play with it and now the pretend to “travel”. They walk around with the suit case and map and plan where they are going. I love seeing them so interested in learning about new places and cultures.

Also in the suit case came a little puzzle so they could try to guess where they are going next. This may be one subscription box I am glad I received!

You can sign up for Little Passports on their website! Their world box is recommended for ages 5-10 years old and Little Passports USA Edition for 7-12 year olds. If you are still looking for that perfect Christmas gift this would be a great one to give! Prices on each run from $10-95-$13.95 depending on which plan level you go for (one month, 12 month or 6 month).

So grab your kids and go exploring! What are you waiting for!

~I received the above package in exchange for a review. The above post does contain affiliate links in which I am compensated for each subscription. Regardless the above thoughts are my own and honest opinions!~

Fun with Learning and EducationalToysPlanet! #Review #HolidayGiftGuide

Around this time last year I introduced you to Education Toys Planet (sponsor). My kids received a really cool marble run and are still really into it.

This year I would like to introduce another product that they have. With my kids getting older it is important to me to have something that is not only fun but helps them with their school as well. I honestly do not like electronics much. But this item I am completely ok with them having.

The Math Wiz Electronic Learning Handheld Game is a fun gaming system that acts kind of like flashcards. It will quiz your student on addition, subtract, multiplication, and division. It has the sounds, the graphics, and can even act as a calculator! It is fast pace and has 8 skill levels for your child to try to pass.

My son is having a blast with this. To him everything is a race so the quick pace is a plus! I really like how he is having fun while learning. This is also perfect because in his class he is practicing his math facts and he has to have them memorized for addition by middle of December! Great way to keep him on top of things and going!

I really love this company and their products. I highly recommend them for part of your Christmas shopping! You can find this game and other travel games on Educational Toys Planet website! You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest
