Product Review - Purex UltraPacks

Good day folks! So as I have been battling recovering from surgery...I realized that I had not stocked up on many of the necessary items I would need to survive my in-home stay. Just as I (well really my mom) realized that I was out of laundry detergent I received a package in the mail. And lo and behold, it was Purex UltraPacks. Made my day...and my mom's too since she was the one doing all the laundry.

They are these cute little squishy packs that cut out the need to measure detergent or lift heavy bottles. When you touch them you just want to squeeze them until they pop but please RESIST :).

I love free products just like any other person, but I have to admit most of the time you get what you pay for (pun intended). This is not the case with these little packs of joy. I was actually surprised at how well they cleaned. And they smell good! They are safe for all machines (HE included). In fact, I have an HE machine (top loader) with a detergent tray. But you you just pop these little babies right in the drum (is that what it's called? IDK) lol, and voila. Works like a charm...as a matter of fact, I've run out and need to go buy some.


I definitely recommend these...and I'm anxiously waiting for them to be made with Zout (hint, hint Purex).

The release date is scheduled for February 2012 so watch the store shelves!
So, as a tribute to these wonderfully squishy packs...here is...

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
