Zep Cherry Bomb Hand Cleaner is a simple way to get my hands clean and sanitary even after working in the yard or around the outside. It has a light scent that is not overpowering.

The fresh cherry scent works to totally eliminate stinky smells like fuel and oil. The best part is that it does NOT contain any kind of harsh chemicals, so it will not dry out your hands. It actually leaves my hands feeling soft and looking pretty.

I like that it cleans and disinfects at the same time. It gives me confidence during my home cleaning process and saves me time since it is a 2 in 1 product!


I really liked how quick I could clean up my bath with Zep All-Around Oxy. It got all the makeup and icky grime cleaned up quickly. My bathroom surfaces shined up so nicely.  The bathtub was fresh as a daisy and all those bath oils were cleaned right up thanks to my Zep All-Around Oxy. 

I am all about a culture of clean. I like every clean and organized but it is a challenge with sports playing people in the house including myself. We are active and running around all the time. Zep makes it easy to get the house cleaned up quickly and to leave everything looking fresh and clean. We try to leave the shoes by the door which is the best start but any grass stains or dirt I know Zep will clean it up fast.

Pizza Flatbreads are an easy and fast weeknight recipe idea that you can customize how you like #pizzaflatbread #flatbreadpizza #pizza #homemadepizza #fastdinner


My husband and I both enjoy cooking but as a dual working couple with a tween it can be a challenge to get a healthy meal out there most every night. We both are determined to keep it healthy for us and for the family. We are all active between Ultimate Frisbee, running, track and field and my varied fitness routines including Crossfit. One of our staples that end up on the table at least once a month is a fun one that we have named Pizza Flatbreads. You can customize them for any diet or fitness plan or go all out if you can eat what you like.


You can use pita bread or flatbreads or if you are keeping your carbs down you can make them from broccoli or cauliflower blended with cheese. That is also another option as well.  We usually use whole wheat flatbreads from Trader Joes and I stock them in the freezer. They stay well for a few months.

This time my hubby was the chef and he added sauteed spinach, Mediterranean olives, Trader Joes fat free crumbled feta cheese (it is President fat-free crumbled feta cheese with a Trader Joes label and half the price!) You can add whatever kind of cheese or veggies you like whether it is broccoli or zucchini, we have used yellow squash, eggplant and even squash. You can saute onions and garlic, add colorful chopped peppers or use whatever is in the refrigerator. You could even put chopped egg on it. Enjoy your fast and easy recipe and let me know what you think!

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Honeysuckle Body Wash smells amazing and leaves my skin soft @crowdtap #sponsored


Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Honeysuckle Body Wash is a wonderful way to get clean. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day makes a variety of household products that you will love. They are crafted with these essential oils from flowers and herbs that are wonderful and smell unbelievable. The best part is they really do work. They get everything clean and that includes you now too! The company actually was inspired by Thelma Meyer who was a really mama of nine. Her daughter had the brilliant idea to make cleaners that smelled just like her mom’s garden but that worked really well to clean too. It was a revolutionary idea. The company really focuses on staying green and being sustainable and I love that too. When you use Mrs. Meyer’s products you feel good about cleaning anything and that includes you.

There's nothing more refreshing then a shower in the morning with the sweet and soothing scent of Honeysuckle.  Honeysuckle really relaxes me so it is great for waking up gently! Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Honeysuckle Body Wash is a dreamy scent to experience in the shower. I also liked it in my bath at night. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Honeysuckle Body Wash is a wonderful way to get clean. I have used their cleaning products before but this body wash was new to me. The bottle is huge and it will definitely last for a long time. That saves me time and money. 


The bottle itself is somewhat utilitarian so if you are looking for a fancy look, you won't find it here. On the other hand, if you are looking for a more natural body wash that smells amazing and leaves your skin clean and soft, you will be satisfied. The body wash was gentle on my skin and rinsed off easily. It felt comfortable and didn't cause any irritation either. The scent was totally captivating and I really enjoyed my shower. I will continue to use this one! When I use Mrs. Meyer’s products I feel good about using them in my home.

Seventh Generation Ultra Power Plus™ Auto Dish Detergent Packs product test review #sponsored

Disclosure:  I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

I recently had the opportunity to test Seventh Generation's Ultra Power Plus™ Auto Dish Detergent Packs. These were a new product to me though I have used many Seventh Generation products over the years. I received one full size pack of the detergent packs I tried out the pacs for several loads of dishes and I was quite impressed. They worked really well to get my dishes clean. 

Ultra Power Plus™ Dishwasher Detergent Packs give you the ultimate amount of grease-fighting power for a total clean. The dual-action formula contains enzymes to power away 48-hour stuck-on food, and oxygen bleach to fight tough stains. I like that this product is more natural and uses natural enzymes to help clean off food and dirt. The package is resealable and all I need to do is drop in a pack and start up the dishwasher. 


I was impressed with how easy these Seventh Generation Ultra Power Plus™ Auto Dish Detergent Packs were to use. There was no mess and no worry about spillage. My dishes came out of the dishwasher sparkling clean and there was no food residue. It must be those natural enzymes at work. I like that there is no bleach, phosphates or fake scents in there too. 


The company shared that they use a dual action formula cleans without chlorine bleach, phosphates, or synthetic fragrances. As I mentioned, it comes in convenient single-use packs in a light, resealable pouch. These are easy to use because there is zero mess and no measuring involved. Seventh Generation Ultra Power Plus™ Auto Dish Detergent Packs have 0% Synthetic Fragrances and use no Chlorine Bleach. It is good to note that all of Seventh Generation's Auto Dish detergents work in hot and cold water and are effective at standard and energy-saving settings. I like when I can be as green as I can be and help the environment while saving money. It is a win-win for everyone to save energy too. Try Seventh Generation Ultra Power Plus™ Auto Dish Detergent Packs and let me know what you think.

Revlon PhotoReady gets me picture perfect in a flash! #PhotoReady #RevlonCrowd #sponsored



The perfect eye makeup look is seamless from top to bottom. The reality is that it isn't so easy to achieve unless you start with high quality products. Some people think you have to spend a bundle to get high quality products but that isn't true. You can find great products, with a ton of variety and options and gorgeous colors right at your local pharmacy or big box store. Think Target, Walmart, Duane Reade, Rite Aid, CVS or Walgreens. Yes, you can. Have you checked out the makeup and beauty from Revlon lately? You need to take a good look since they are reasonably priced, are easy to use and let you get a complete look without putting a huge dent in your wallet. The Revlon ColorStay™ line recently launched a bunch of new items including these beauties that I received recently. I had the opportunity to test drive the 2-in-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner, Revlon ColorStay™ Crème Eye Shadow, Revlon ColorStay™ Brow Pencil, and Revlon Super Length Mascara. These are super high quality and the prices are very reasonable.

A picture perfect look starts with a gorgeous brow and finishes with a a few well placed strokes of quality mascara. In this sampling from Revlon, it is easy to create a winning look with a Revlon ColorStay™ 2-in-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner, Revlon ColorStay™ Crème Eye Shadow, Revlon ColorStay™ Brow Pencil, and Revlon Super Length Mascara. It makes it fun and worry free to experiment to your hearts content with some of these pretty long lasting luxurious shadows, luscious lashes, and killer cat eyes.



I found all these items were easy to use and gave me a look that was truly picture perfect fast. I gave myself a sparkling new look for work and got compliments galore. One of my colleagues noticed and complimented me right away. Even clients noticed and said I looked great. It was easy to complete the look and I suggest you try out the line.  Thanks to Revlon PhotoReady I can look on trend anytime I want. I really felt refreshed and triumphant by achieving a really bold look with Revlon. It was a fun way to try some new cosmetics and create a striking looking for spring.
