9. Put two strips of tape on one row of teeth, and tape it inside the shark’s mouth on one side. Take the other strip and tape it inside on the opposite side.

11. And there you have it! A finished shark! This one is a little fat!

Top 5 Scents For Summer

Hi guys! Today’s post is all about my top 5 perfumes to use in the summertime! All of these perfumes are mostly floral based; those are the scents that I mostly gravitate towards. These are all super girly and feminine, and just perfect for spring/summer!

20130807-141151.jpg

1. L’Occitane Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum

20130807-144109.jpg
This is my most favorite perfume of all time! Pivoine Flora means “peony flower” in English. This perfume is a mixture of peony and magnolia flowers, and it smells just like you walked through a garden. If you like floral scents, try this out!

2. Michael Kors Very Hollywood Eau de Parfum

20130807-144447.jpg
I love the bottle, it is so pretty and glamourous. The scent is a mixture of mandarin, iced bergamot, and gardenia flower. It is sweet and floral, and it lingers all day.

3. Philosophy Amazing Grace Fragrance

20130807-143441.jpg
This scent is very feminine and soft. It is a mixture of Bergamot, Muguet Blossoms, and Musk. It smells very floral, and also clean and fresh.

4. Marchesa Parfum D’ Extase

20130807-143433.jpg
Oh, this bottle! So pretty and elegant. The scent is a blend of iris, freesia, violet leaves, jasmine, ambrox, and musk. This smells so good, and would be perfect for a night out.

5. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum

20130807-143456.jpg
This scent is sophisticated and elegant. It has notes of patchouli, vanilla, white musk, bergamot, and mandarin, but also smells floral with a hint of rose, iris, and jasmine.

All-Natural Hand Sanitizer Wipes for Kids (and adults!)

Hi Guys! I wanted to make a post about these new Hand Sanitizer Wipes that I recently found. If you are a mom, you need these in your life! If you are not a mom, you can still use these, and you will love them! These are the BabyGanics Hand Sanitizing Wipes.

20130803-185139.jpg

I recently potty-trained my daughter, and we are now using public restrooms when we are out and about. She is not tall enough to reach the sinks yet to wash her hands, and she is really heavy, so it is hard to hold her up to do it. I was on the hunt for some type of natural hand sanitizer. I wanted something that was organic, and that didn’t contain alcohol, or harmful chemicals. I came across these at Babies R Us, and I know they are also sold on Amazon. I paid $8.99 for a box of 20 individually packed wipes.

20130803-185230.jpg

20130803-185248.jpg

These wipes:

-Alcohol Free (so they feel moisturizing instead of drying on the hands)
-Kill 99.9% of germs
-Biodegradable
-Have a light citrus scent
-Not tested on animals
-great for travel, purse, diaper bag, stroller, car

I am really glad that I found these, and I have been using them on my hands as well. I like that they are in a wipe form, so that I don’t have to worry about anything spilling in my bag.

Hope you guys liked this post, have a great day! 🙂
