Look Your Best When You Return To School

I received this product from Satrell Beauty for review.  Everyone likes to look their best, and for young girls returning to school, this is especially true.  Satrell Beauty offers a nice selection of products ranging from nail polish to lip gloss.


Some people love bold color on their lips, but for those who prefer a more subtle and natural look, this Clarity Lip Gloss is perfect.  This clear gloss will make your lips appear clearer while leaving them with a glossy finish.

Satrell Beauty lip glosses are Cruelty Free, Paraben Free and lead free.  The long lasting, non-sticky formula has Vitamin E for moisture and delivers an ultra shine.  It's the perfect look for Back To School!

Kids Love Paint Parties

I received these products from Paintly Fun for review.  With all of the excitement that's associated with Back To School, kids need a fun way to wind down and relax.  Kids love to paint, so whether it's used in the classroom or as an after school activity, a paint party is a great idea!

I received a Five Person Paint Party Kit - Little Zofia Sloth.  It also comes in three person and four person kits, so you can choose the size for the amount of people you need.  The kit comes with everything you need for each person to complete the painting (an 11" x 14" Stretched Cloth Canvas On Wooden Frame, Tubes Of All Paints Required, Royal and Langnickel Paint Brushes, Splash Cloth, Paper Plate For Mixing and Paper Towels), all bundled up into individual kits.  You also get a link to the streaming video tutorial that will guide you through the painting.  

This is great as a family activity, or for a birthday party.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they had even included a treat bag in each bundle.  I think that is just the sweetest gesture on their part!  And it impressed me greatly.


After browsing their website to see their selection, choose the painting you would like to do and place your order.  I chose this little guy.  Isn't this just the most adorable little sloth you've ever seen?  Here's the description of the painting from the website:

"Little Zofia Sloth loves just hanging out in her own personal tree!  You can't help smiling when you see her cute little face.  Need to hang out for a while?  Your favorite friend is waiting!  You will enjoy this painting this cute little friend to display in your home or office!  Everyone needs a smile!"

Everyone will enjoy creating a beautiful piece of art that they can display with pride.  And even though each person participating in the party will be following the same tutorial, each painting will be unique to the painter.  There's an artist inside of each of us.  This paint party kit will help you find it.

Invisible Face Mask

I received this product from Mingle Mask for review.  As children and teachers prepare to return to school, there are conflicting views on whether or not they should wear masks.  Many schools have announced that masks will no longer be required.  For those parents and teachers who prefer masks, Mingle Mask is a great choice.


For $57.99 (regularly $62.99) you can get a box of 50 masks with 100 ear loop strings.  But this doesn't hide your face like the average mask does. 
Mingle Mask is an invisible, ergonomic mask that shows your face, yet still provides the benefits of mask protection.  You can breathe easy - because it doesn't fog up.  One size fits everyone.  It fits comfortably around your ears and has a built in chin rest.

Because the mask is clear,  people will see your smile.  You will be more recognizable because your whole face will be visible.  This will greatly improve the interaction between children, because they will be able to see the facial expressions of the person wearing the mask.


The mask covers the face and nose, making it easier to breathe and talk, while providing a plastic barrier that will stop the wearer from spreading droplets to other people.  It won't smear your lipstick and lets air circulate to keep your face cool.  And it's easy to clean between uses.  So if you prefer to continue wearing a mask, or want your children to do so at school, the Mingle Mask is a good choice.  It's the perfect way to gradually transition back to normal life.
