Whether it’s a start up business or a multilevel marketing company that your friend has joined, we should try our hardest to support them in their endeavors! This person may be trying to be a stay at home mom because they cannot afford daycare everyday, or maybe they feel it’s a better environment for their family. Perhaps they are on the verge of losing their house and need to be successful to make ends meet. Or maybe they just want the extra cash in their pockets to feel a little more financially stable. Whatever the reason my be, we should be supporting our friends and family instead of bashing their drive to “promote their products on Facebook”.
A while ago, I asked if any of my friends who were on a business adventure would like to collaborate. Each of the following friends sent me their 4 most popular products (that were safe for pregnant women OF COURSE) so I could try them and tell you all what I thought. In no way shape or form did the fact that I received these products as compensation for this exposure have anything to do with my reviews. These are my personal opinions to my most honest ability.

My Opinion: I have tried Jamberry once before. I actually bought a lot of product from Jamberry and ended up selling all of it basically unused because I didn’t care for it. This time was totally different!
I was highly impressed by the lacquer which was not a product that I had tried the first time around. It went on smooth, and had great coverage! I turned my head for only one moment to heat the wrap on my nail and Myles helped himself to the lacquer…. He was so proud of his matching toe nail!
The heater is also a lot more user friendly than it used to be. The old one was more bulky and this one has a more direct air flow.
As far as durability, I am a nail biter. The application kit helped prep my nails so well that even though I am continuously picking and chewing (GROSS, I know!), they held up really well. These are the results from first application to one week later. Normally, I can have my nails done at a salon and the next day they are already chipped. After a week, there was a small amount of chipping at the edges but the wrap was still hanging strong. The base of the wrap was starting to lift a little bit.
Olivia’s business is absolutely one of my favorite small businesses ever! This is one I have supported from the beginning and she has returned the favor with my blog. When I think of Browne’s Boutique, I think of a hard working mama from a small town who is making a living as a stay at home mom! When I say hard working, I mean in every aspect of her life!

My Opinion: I now have a new GO TO hoodie! It is beyond comfortable and fits so perfectly!!! Plus the sparkly decal is AMAZING! <3
The onesie is adorable! I can’t wait to try it out on baby girl! I love that she sent a gender neutral onesie since we weren’t sure yet what we were having!
***BE SURE WITH ALL CLOTHING, YOU HAND WASH INSIDE OUT AND HANG OR LAY FLAT TO DRY***
Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with cups!!! I LOVE cups with straws the most!! The saying “messy hair dont care” is so me too.
The next jug, I wasn’t sure I was going to love it, but…. I did. Being pregnant, it is very important to drink LOTS of water! This allows you to carry a lot of fluids without constantly filling up. Plus, it has the measurement lines on the side so you know how much you have drank!
The teal tumbler is soooo cute! It kept my coffee hot for quite a while… Actually, it kept it warm better than my normal favorite coffee mug.
Myles is a huge water drinker. Often, he will choose water over juice and will almost always choose it over pop. This little water bottle was a huge hit and perfect for him!
***BE SURE WITH ALL THE CUPS, YOU HAND WASH ONLY!! Do not soak and not safe for microwave or dishwasher*** This part sucks for me because I hate doing dishes!
The koozies are just like the koozies you would get from a wedding. They are small enough to fold and put in your purse or back pocket, yet still thick enough to keep your beverage cold.
Last but not least, the popcicle koozie was a hit. Personally, I think it was more so because he got to have a popcicle than anything LOL! It was wayyyy easier for him to hold onto.
Epoch Sole Solution Foot Treatment – A therapeutic foot cream for those suffering from rough, dry, or cracked feet
Epoch Baobab Body Butter – Promote smooth, supple skin that stays touchably soft all day while enhancing skin resiliency for even softer skin tomorrow.
Nu Colour Mascara -Define your lashes and extend their future. No clumps or smudging so your lashes look longer and more noticeable.
My Opinion: I was beyond excited to try the toothpaste! First, the taste is not as potent as you would expect. Its actually very mild, which is nice if you plan to use it with your children as well. I love the way it cleans and really enjoyed how my mouth felt every day after starting to use it. However at 13 days, I was not seeing much of a difference in whiteness. Luckily on the 14th day, I did see a difference in my pictures. I will be ordering this again!
As far as the foot treatment goes, it is not something I will purchase again. Perhaps I was using too much of it as my feet are not terribly dry, but it felt as though I had put a bunch Crisco on my feet as much as I tried to rub it in. It is recommended to use twice a day and I did see an improvement in the small amount of dead skin/cracking I did have. To some, I think this could be the solution to your foot problems. For me, it was not worth sliding around in my flip flops for an hour after applying.
HOLY BODY BUTTER! This stuff is a God send!!!!!! I have used allllllllllll kinds of stretch mark creams and oils… this stuff right here is AMAZING! Even though I am pregnant and quickly growing, the body butter basically made my current stretch marks disappear and I haven’t gained any more! I love this!!
The mascara is a great product for your dress down days (which I have been having a lot of lately LOL). If you are looking for a big over-the-top WOWZA mascara, this is not it. If you are searching for an every day, low-profile makeup, this may be for you! It is super healthy and is just enough to make your lashes pop.

I Cant Adult Today 14 oz Mug – 14 ounce mug with the wording I can’t adult today. Hand wash only do not microwave. Made with commercial grade sign vinyl. Available in other colors and can be customized.
My Opinion: The Peace Love Michigan Tote we took to the REO Speedwagon concert with us. It fit our blanket, two hoodies, an umbrella, my wallet and keys! I loved how its not super bulky but acts as a Mary Poppins bag! Plus it zips up which is always a bonus.
Again, we loved the popsicle holder will be of great use in our household! It really helps Myles keep a hold of his popsicle without just laying it on a table for Mommy to clean up because it’s so cold!
Myles’ t-shirt was just too much LOL! We loved it, and so did every single person we came in contact with the day he wore it! So cute and creative!
I have a ton of days that I cannot adult… like every day to be completely honest! This mug went right along with my attitude =D

My Opinion: The thieves cleaner is THE BOMB! I have officially replaced my favorite cleaner with this solution! It is natural, smells amazing, yet has the power to cut through all the nasty crap in my kitchen… I went through about half a bottle in a week because I was cleaning EVERYTHING in my house with it!
I unfortunately have been so busy that I have not had a chance to try the bug be gone. It smells very similar to your typical bug spray just without the yucky crap! Hopefully we will have a day soon that we get to enjoy the oudoors and can give this a try!
The NingXia Red was something I was pretty nervous but also excited to try. More often than not these small drinks are so potent and taste beyond disgusting! This handy little packet however, was sweet but not too sweet. I felt not only more energized throughout the day, but also more clear headed and just overall healthier.
Grapefruit oil in your water is delicious. It is light and refreshing, and actually makes me drink more water. I was concerned it was going to give my water a “texture” but it was not oily at all. I really couldn’t tell a difference.
