Showing posts with label hands

 Welcome to May, one of the busiest months for most families I know. Whether your trying to balance end-of-school-year events, hosting or attending BBQ’s and bonfires, or traveling, now is the perfect time to stock up on hand sanitizer and I have four options for busy on the go families. 

4 Hand Sanitizer Options:

I’ve finally started my spring cleaning in earnest, both inside and outside. While I love to make my home sparkling clean, my hands sure do pay the price.  Thanks to my sponsor, Dial, who supplied a free bottle of their latest hand soap, not only do my hands feel better, I’m able to host this great giveaway, so you can hydrate your hands as well.

If you are in to health and beauty products like I am, then you have probably heard of Marula oil, which is being praised as the oil to use this year. Found in everything from high end cosmetics to shampoo and conditioners, this miracle oil has been used for years in its homeland of South Africa. 

The Marula tree grows in abundance in Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  The oil from these trees is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants and is highly nourishing and hydrating. I can see why Dial would add it to their newest soap in their Boutique Collection.

My Thoughts:

The first thing I noticed and admired was the rich color of this hand soap.  I took a close up photo so you could see the color as well. It reminds me of beautiful a Tigers’ Eye gemstone.

Once I smelled Dial Miracle Oil hand soap, I had to give it a try right away. I loved the light scent so much; I decided to put it in our mudroom bathroom so that my husband and family could have a moisturizing soap to use after working in the yard.

Like me, my girls loved using this soap and remarked on how well it worked yet didn’t dry out their hands. 

My husband doesn’t like highly scented soaps, especially if they smell feminine, so I awaited his reaction. While he did like how well the soap worked and made his hands feel, he didn’t care for the smell as I feared.

There was an easy fix for that; I just put this lovely soap at the kitchen sink, where it can be used by family and guests alike. 

My girls and I agree that our hands really do feel softer and more moisturized when using this soap, so we'll be keeping it in stock.

Free up your hands with a tablet stand

in , , , , , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Sunday, February 23, 2014

I love office supplies and trying out new ones but I never saw a need for a tablet stand because I don’t use a tablet often. However, my daughters use their tablets all the time, so when asked if I wanted to try a tablet stand free of charge, I said sure. I’m very glad I did.

One of the things I noticed right away was how small the tablet stand was. It folds down for easy storage which is a huge plus for me. Whether I keep it in my office, or one of the girls takes it to their room, it will fit in a drawer or cubby easily.

Another nice feature of this tablet stand is that you can use your tablet in portrait or landscape mode and rotates 360 degrees.

The hands free design makes playing games, pinning, following recipes (both on and offline) a breeze. I even found it holds paperwork to ease viewing and entering information on spreadsheets.

All in all, we really like this tablet stand and find it is a good value for the price. I invite you to go to to learn more about all the Kantek products.
