Waist Trainers: Do they really work? Reasons I would, and would not, suggest them

Waist Trainers have become a popular topic, endorsed by a slew of celebrities. Promising a trimmer, hour-glass shaped figure that every woman wants. And yes, admittedly after having a baby of my own, I no longer have six-pack abs and a flat tummy. Such is Mom Life. Continue reading “Waist Trainers: Do they really work?

EiVi Panties by Genial Day Review

Guys, take a seat. Ladies, let’s talk about Aunt Flo…

Not something we necessarily want to talk about – but it is a part of life. And honestly, having your period sucks for a variety of reasons. But it really sucks for your panties. This is a sponsored review in which I received free product in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own and not swayed in any way. This page also contains affiliate links.

And aside from ruining your favorite pair, it also sucks during this time of the month if you have skin allergies. Or PH balance issues. Not to mention if you just went through childbirth, or gynecological surgery!

So, as I’ve been hearing a lot about the new line of feminine products that Genial Day offers, you can imagine how excited I was to do an unboxing last week!

Check out the awesome package I received from Genial Day!

Pads, Liners…and “Period Panties”

I received Regular liners, Low Flow pads, and Heavy Flow pads, to use with the EiVi panties. They are specifically designed to help reduce odor and bacteria growth. A Tourmaline Mineral is used within the inner strip of the pad, protecting the reproductive system from harmful bacteria found in what the liners catch. This mineral aso helps balance your PH level, boosts your metabolism, and is said to help the body naturally repair and heal faster during “that time of the month.”

So just the pads and liners themselves, are great for those who suffer from irritation, heavy flow, and painful/irregular periods. I thought they were super thin, but actually did a great job!

The EiVi Panties themselves (available in several models and colors) are made of organic cotton, with a special finish that blocks the spread of bacteria as well. They are also designed with little pockets that help hide the wings of the pads/liners.

What were the EiVi panties like?

Extremely comfortable! I thought they were very well made, and wouldn’t mind wearing them all the time. The pocket for the wings, is actually quite genius. I’m not sure if you could use any kind of pad/liner with these, since I used specifically the Genial Day brand products together, but I can say at least one thing. As far as Aunt Flo goes, her visit wasn’t entirely uncomfortable using these products.

Another plus for the eco-conscious;these products have been tested for harmful chemicals, and contain none!

The EiVi Panties by Genial Day and the GENIAL DAY Organic Cotton Pantiliners With Anion Strip Kit ( 9 Packs) are availible here, and you can also order, and check out more info on these great products at Genial Day.com (Hint: You can register and receive FREE SAMPLES from their website!)

ZENBand & ZENTones Program Review

ZENBand & ZENTones Programs by Blooming Wellness – Review

This is a sponsored post in which I received free products (A ZENBand and ZENTones Programs) in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own!

As we all know, stress and anxiety are killers. And if you’re married, or a parent, then you probably have a small amount of stress, in the very least. So when I found the ZENBand by Blooming Wellness, I became naturally intrigued. What I thought was just a cute, stylish headband, turned out to be a lot more!

Busy Mom With No “Makeup Time”

 I’m a busy mom with no “makeup time”

I can get the baby (and husband) looking picture perfect in ten minutes, flat. Myself, is a different story. Like most women, I need time. I need to be able to shampoo, condition, blowdry, and style my hair. Outfits need coordinating.  My shoes must be pondered. But realistically speaking? #Aintnobodygottimefodat… Especially a Busy Mom.

The most wonderful time of the year…

Every Mom wants to look her best during the holidays, if no other time of the year. There’s family to entertain, pictures to take, and commitments to meet. The last thing any of us want, is to be remembered as looking tired, haggard, or stressed.

There’s a few things I do, and use, when pressed for time before a big social event http://wp.me/p7XODP-g1 @jasminea5100

Prep Early

If I need my toenails painted, I do it the night before. Clothes are laid out and pressed, once I’m sure I won’t change my mind. Which, is actually also done for the baby. And I make sure he’s ready before I’m ready. That way, if I need to scale back to keep from running behind, at least the baby is done. Even if whatever event isn’t until six hours, if I can go ahead and take 10 minutes to straighten my hair, I’ll do it. Busy Mom’s need to utilize their time wisely, so wherever you can save it and prep early, the better.

Ask for help

If my husband can keep our son from spilling juice on his Christmas sweater, while I’m trying to finish my makeup, it’s a win-win. I’m not freaking out over looking bad, and the baby’s white sweater won’t have stains on it. If anyone is around that can help hold the fort down, while you get dressed, take advantage of it. You’ll do a better job on your appearance if you don’t have to chase the kids around for a few minutes.

Stick to necessities…

While we all love curling (or straightening!) our hair, sometimes we need to delegate our time wisely. Most busy moms are known for their up-dos anyway! When I simply can’t justify spending time on it, a neat bun will do. You can also add in cute clips for a festive touch! And with necessities in mind, stick to the basics when running behind; Foundation, mascara, lipcolor. A little goes a long way! A good eyeliner never hurts either, and is my most used tool!
