Keep your hand soft and moisturized with Softsoap's new Hand Wash Plus Lotion...

The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!

There is so much sickness going around this winter and we're adamant about washing our hands to keep the germs at bay. What comes with that though is super dry hands. 

So when we heard about Softsoap's new Hand Wash Plus Lotion we were excited to try! Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion offers a unique formula that is made with a touch of lotion to lock in moisture leaving your hands feeling soft and clean. 

Softsoap sent us this fun mailer so that we could try out all 3 of the new scents --Shea and Cocoa Butter, Orchid and Coconut Milk and Aloe Water and Lime. Also in the kit we received a jar of cookie mix and the cutest heart cookie cutter!

The boys love chocolate chip cookies so they were so excited and I had fun getting my hands messy so that I could put this new hand wash to the test.

All of the scents smell so good and I love knowing that no matter how many times we wash our hands they will now be softer and more moisturized instead of dried out.

Colgate is joining the Amazon Dash program --with the touch of a button your favorite products will be delivered right to your doorstep so you'll never run out...

The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!

I am so forgetful. Last week I ran out of deodorant and everyday when I went to put it on I thought I'll buy some today and then once I left the bathroom busy life took over and I never thought about it again until the next morning when I was still out (don't worry I used the boys deodorant until I bought some!). I'm sure you've done this too, whether it be your eyeliner, body wash or your toothpaste it's hard to remember until that moment when you go to use it and you're still out.

What if you had a little button in your bathroom that you could instantly press when you were out of something and you could have the product you needed delivered right to your doorstep? 

Well that is reality now --Colgate is joining a group of best-in-class consumer brands and jumping into the Amazon Dash program....

Amazon Prime members who participate in Amazon's Dash button program will be able to have all their favorite Colgate products delivered right to their doorstep. That's right press a button, and products are at your door -- Can you say AHHH-MAZING! 

The Amazon Dash button is a special button (hooked up to your Amazon account) you can place in your home in places like the bathroom, laundry room and kitchen, places that you use the same products over and over and tend to run out of. Press the Dash button whenever you need Amazon to send you a refill and wah-la the product will soon be at your doorstep!

With Colgate's participation you'll be able to have your favorite toothbrushes, toothpastes and mouthwashes stocked at all times --empowering you to take control of your oral health by never running out of the products you need. 

I can't wait until my new Colgate Amazon Dash button arrives to give it a try! I'll be back soon to tell you all what I think of this new gadget.

 In the meantime make sure you're following Colgate's  Facebook and Twitter pages to stay up to date with this new gadget and all of their latest products!

We're planning a Valentines Day classroom party with supplies from Oriental Trading....

  The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!

Valentines Day is almost here! You guys know how much I love helping with the kids V-day parties at school and I always turn to Oriental Trading for the best party planning supplies. They have the biggest selection of products for every holiday or special occasion you can think of. From decorations to treats, candy and crafts they always have everything I need to help throw the best classroom parties!

When planning classroom parties there are several things the teacher always asks for:

1. A fun craft -- Kids love being hands on and also taking something special they made home. This Valentines Day the girls will be making these adorable Heart Necklaces and the boys will make sporty red and white Baseball Stitching Bracelets. 

2. Treats -- You can't have a party without homemade treats and some candy on Valentines Day. Oriental Trading has a huge selection. Whether you need bulk candy, or name brand treats you'll find both and so much more. We'll be bringing these Hershey's Hugs and Kisses Chocolate Candy and Valentines Tootsie Roll Pops.  

3. Goody Bags -- I've brought goody bags to almost all of my kids class parties and kids go crazy for these! They love getting a bag of goodies that are all theirs. I always include useful items along with some fun things too. This year we are doing Valentines footballs, sports balls, tattoos, pencils and a few other things. The boys love assembling these goody bags for their classmates.

5. Valentines Cards -- The most important thing, Valentines cards to pass out to friends. Oriental Trading has so many fun, unique cards. This year Grady picked out these Valentine Mini #1 Fingers. Like the huge foam fingers you get at a sports game, these are a mini version that fit on a kids finger, have a place to write to and from on the back and say 'You're an ALL STAR Valentine' on the front. He had so much fun writing these out for his classmates. 


Valentines Day will be here before we know it. Make sure you're ready and check out the large selection of Valentines Day products that Oriental Trading has this year!
