Beyond The Rack

I wanna tell my ladies about this cool website Beyond The Rack Basically they have all sorts of goodies for everyone, women, children, men and home. The best part is you can get credits. Like if you sign up under me I get $10. ( so you can then in turn do the same) I know some bloggers that are getting orders legit FREE ( like expensive stuff too just from people that have signed up under them). There is some stuff I totally want on the site, and if all I have to pay is shipping I am a happy camper.

Heres some hot stuff they have now:

These are only $11.99 and they are originally over $40. I guess the site sends promo codes to your email that you can add to your cart without even buying it ( you just put something in cart add promo code and delete item and promo code still stays in there, so say its for $10 then boom theres another 10 you have added to your credits. SO I have never shopped here before but a lot of bloggers talk about it and I have read about it and I am DEF giving it a shot now. I just read one of my favorite bloggers post about all the stuff she got for literally free ( except shipping). SO I am jumping aboard this train. ( Fairly late I assume LoL)

Even for kids they have this kitchen for only $169.99 , normally almost $400

Anyways so many cool things I want to order and we can help each other out ( no catch) just sign up under my link( literally takes one minute)

Thanks ladies

Skoy Cloths Review and Giveaway

SO I have honestly found my new addiction    Skoy Cloths. I used to love to clean, then had a baby and it became such a chore. One thing I felt like I was always buying was paper towels. Well I was sent  a 4 pack for free to review and am able to give my readers the chance at winning a set of their very own.

     I always clean the tub before my son takes a bath, so I went in there with my cleaning supplies and my Skoy cloths and gave it a try. I could not believe how much grime came up. Then for the heck of it I said " Let me try the Skoy cloth with just water( not thinking it would get much up, after all I just scrubbed the heck out of the tub.) I was very wrong. Look at what came up just using water and my Skoy:


Now this is all after I had already scrubbed clean the tub.( which was pretty clean to begin with if I must say) I was so impressed. I have been telling every one about them. These cloths are literally making me want to clean now. I use them for everything. They are used best on hard surfaces  such as counter tops, table tops, bookshelves, etc. Skoy cloths are also more earth friendly then say a micro fiber cloth and are a 100% biodegradable. Since I am trying to be more eco-friendly since having the baby these are a GOD SEND. Using 1 SKOY is the same as using 15 yes 15 rolls of paper towels. That to me is crazy. It seems like I buy paper towels every time I go to the store and since using these I think I have bought them once ( will still keep them on hand) The Skoy Cloth also can absorb 15 times its own weight. 

SO you probably want to know how to take care of these bad boys right? You can microwave them wet for two minutes ( MAKE SURE THEY WET- WE do NOT need no FIRES STARTING)  or throw them in the wash. I even did the top rack of my dishwasher and they came out great. I cant complain. I let them dry , they shrivel up a little bit, but whats the big deal because you have to wet them anyways. I really have NO complaints. And thats the honest to goodness truth. 

Oh and I washed my bathroom doors with these with NO chemicals just water and the results were gross LoL. The cloth was pretty much black. Ummmm How I have no idea because I use a Lysol wipe to wipe the door down at least twice a week. ( So needless to say Skoy Cloths will be my go to from now on. Did I mention that you can get a 4 pack for as cheap as $6.99. I am probably going to buy 3 more packs asap.

Now one of you can win your own set of Skoy cloths. They come in such pretty colors too, makes you almost not want to use them.  I want to add that Skoy is partnering with schools for some fundraising. Please go to the Fundraising page for more info. Its a very neat concept. Now on to the giveaway:

The Magic Warble E book Giveaway

     I have some exciting news for those of you that like to read and have kiddos that like to read. Victoria Simcox has written a wonderful book about dwarfs, gnomes, talking animals and an  evil queen. If that intrigues you then this book might be just for you.( or your child, Amazon suggests age 9 and up) She has offered  three lucky readers a chance at winning a copy.

I have not had a chance to read the book yet but scrolling by all the reviews on Amazon I could not find one negative review. That should tell you something. Most people describe the book as " simply enchanting" or " a pleasant read" . The book is 267 pages long and has 1-2 pictures per chapter. ( Pictures in books always make a book more fun in my opinion) 

A little about the author:

Victoria was born in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, to an Austrian immigrant mother, and a Dutch immigrant father. She now lives in Western Washington with her husband, Russ and their three children, Toby, Kristina, and William. Her other family members are a Chihuahua, named Pipsy and two cats, named Frodo and Fritz. Besides being an author, Victoria is a home-schooling mother of twelve years and an elementary school art teacher of eleven years. In her spare time, Victoria enjoys managing her two older children's Celtic band. She also loves writing, reading, painting watercolors, hiking, good movies, and just simply hanging out with her family and friends. 

Here is a little teaser from the book:

Chapter 16, Leaving the Forest, Excerpt

Like a flash of lightning, Clover flew down from a nearby tree
branch. “Hurry! There’s no time to waste!” she said urgently. “We
must get you and the Magic Warble to the top of Mount Bernovem
before Queen Sentiz tortures Werrien—or maybe even kills him!”
She expected Kristina to follow her, but Kristina stood still, not
knowing what to say or do. When Clover noticed that she wasn’t
following her, she flew back and stopped abruptly in midair, very
close to Kristina’s face. “What’s the matter with you? Why won’t
you come?” she asked, irritated.

“There’s somewhat of a slight problem,” Kristina answered.

Clover put her hands on her hips. “And what might that be?”

“I…don’t have the Magic Warble.”

Clover clenched her fists angrily at her sides. “You lost the Magic
Warble? I knew it! I just knew you would fumble this mission,” she
ranted. Then she turned around and began to fly away.

“Wait a minute!” Kristina yelled after her. Clover didn’t turn
around to acknowledge her, so Kristina yelled, “I gave it to Werrien!”

Like a speeding bullet, Clover flew back to her. “You gave what
to Werrien?” she asked.

“The Magic Warble,” Kristina answered.

“Why?” Clover asked.

“Because I wanted him to carry it.”

“Well, isn’t that sweet?” Clover taunted her. “Now look what
you’ve done. You ruined any chance of Bernovem gaining back its

“Well, it wouldn’t have mattered anyway, because I have no way
of knowing where I need to bring it,” Kristina said, feeling flustered.
