Purex No Sort Detergent Review, Sweepstakes & Giveaway

http://insiders.purex.com/TheRulesHaveChangedwithPurexNoSort?id=108

I was just introduced to the one of the coolest Purex products, Purex no sort!  This detergent features a breakthrough anti-color-transfer technology which traps loose dyes in the wash and prevents them from settling onto other fabrics.  So basically it leaves your clothes bright and clean without color bleeding accidents!

 Adding the detergent, it is a nice blue color!


Here Goes Nothing!  You can see I have all different colors in this load including pinks and whites.

 Three pieces I normally wouldn't wash together but I did in Purex No Sort.

I am so impressed!  Our clothes came out clean and bright and there was absolutely no bleeding from one fabric to another.

 Happy Baby F!

I will definitely continue to add this into our family's laundry care routine.  This is a detergent that everyone will be able to use and I can leave the worries of bleeding colors behind as well as extra laundry loads!

In short, Purex No Sort helps keeps dyes from transferring onto other fabrics, simplifies your routine with fewer loads and has the same bright, clean performance I have come to expect with Purex.  What a winner!  You can check out all the details of Purex No Sort here.

9 Things to Love About See's Candies

See's Candies new location in Austin

I had the amazing privilege of attending a special blogging event last night at See's Candies.  You see, they have opened up a new location in Austin, not too far from my home - score!  We were able to sample lots and lots of chocolate.

 
 What a fun night out!

Not only was I introduced to this wonderful candy but I learned about their company and even got to pack my very own box of chocolate.  I found out that while I was a fast chocolate packer, my box wasn't all too pretty.  Packing a box of chocolate is harder than it looks people.  Eating it, won't be! 

 
 My box of chocolate packed by moi.

Packing our boxes Lucy and Ethel style.

I had such a great time and learned so much about See's that I put this list together.  Hope you enjoy!

9 Things to Love About See's Candies

1.  High quality.  See's prides itself on high quality and you will instantly be able to tell in the taste.  During WWII when sugar was rationed, See's didn't use less sugar to make their candies.  They just made less candy.  Their commitment to high quality will keep you wanting more.

2.  No added preservatives.  They do not add preservatives to their candies, ever!

3.  They  age their chocolate.  This helps give it an extra richness and deliciousness that you won't find everywhere.

4.  You get a free sample when you visit a See's shop.  They give away over a million pieces of candy every year in free samples.


5.  There are over 100 varieties of candy.  From top selling pieces like Bordeaux, Almond Brittle and Scotchmallow to Apricot Bon Bons and Peanut Butter Patties, See's has got it all and then some.  With such a huge selection there is a little something for everyone.


6.  You can build your very own custom box, only what you like so you will have a box of the pieces you love.  You can choose all one flavor or create a yummy combo, the decision is yours.


7.  Allergies: See's candy is gluten free and they have options for those with nut allergies.  See's lollipops, licorice medallions, peppermint twists, chocolate drops, chocolate chips and jelly beans are all processed at their own facility without nuts.  They also have a section of sugar free items as well.


8.  They have a location in Austin!  This is amazing.  See's Candies is expanding and you might just see them pop up in your city.

9.  You couldn't meet nicer people.  Being at See's is like being part of a larger family.  They are welcoming, hospitable and will help you with whatever you need.

So, what are you waiting for.  Visit a See's Candies today and make some memories.  And if you live in or around Austin check out their new location on Braker Lane - it is pretty sweet.

God's Amazing World! Book Review & Giveaway


I want to tell you about a sweet children's book, God's Amazing World by Eileen Spinelli and illustrated by Melanie Florian.  It tells the story of God creating the world in seven days through the eyes of Gracie and her cousin Bo.  I love the way they explore everything right in front of their eyes and share in the joy of God's creation.  They watch clouds, play in the water and mud, pick and eat peaches, pretend to be birds and so much more.  Children can appreciate the story along with the children's fun actions.  And if your children are like mine, they will probably be asking to play in the mud, go look at the clouds, pretend to be animals and so much more.  I love that this story encourages play and exploration while also teaching about the process of God creating the world.  The illustrations are fun, whimsical and will keep the attention of little ones!

D and E loving the illustrations

 E playing with water at the Thinkery.

When we went to the Thinkery last week (Children's Museum in Austin) there was so much to discover and explore.  They had an amazing water exhibit and it was fun to remind E of when God made the seas.  Above you can see her enjoying the ducks!  So if you are looking for an explorative and fun way to share about God's creation with your children I highly recommend this book.  What are you waiting for?  Go #ShareAMoment with your little ones now!

Read more about this book, author and illustrator below.  And be sure to enter the giveaway to win a copy!

About God's Amazing World!
Gracie and her cousin Bo explore the seven days of Creation, all without leaving the backyard!  As Gracie tells the story of how God made the world, she and Bo find evidence of each day's work right there around them.  When they get to Day 2, the day God created the sky, they take a moment to cloud watch.  Day 3 leads them to play in the water, and on Day 6, they imitate the cows and pigs and lions God made.

This sweet, clever picture book by Eileen Spinelli overflows with enthusiasm for God's Creation, and children will catch the excitement and will begin to view their own surroundings as a tour of God's lovely world.  Parents can use this beautiful book to introduce children to the concept of God's work in the world and to encourage appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of the world around us.

Author Bio
Eileen Spinelli is the author of numerous children's books, including Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch; The Best Story, and Two to Cuddle.  Wileen lives is West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Illustrator Bio
Melanie Florian is an illustrator with dual lifelong passions for storytelling and helping children discover the world.  Both passions guide her work today creating vibrant, whimsical illustrations.  Melanie enjoys her inspiring surroundings as she works in the French town of Annecy, in the midst of mountains and a beautiful lake.
