Review: Yalmeh Foundation Brush for Liquid Foundation! Get that Airbrush Look!

*Mommy's Makin' It received this Makeup Brush to facilitate this review. Forex Regardless, all opinions are my own.



How many times have you bought a makeup brush just to find out that the bristles fall out? Or it just doesn't apply your makeup right? Have you been really trying to find the secret to that "Airbrush" makeup finish that everyone else seems to have? Yalmeh's Foundation Brush is the best product for liquid foundation!


Jessica from Mommy's Makin' It received the Yalmeh Foundation Brush. I have had TONS of makeup brushes over the years but never have I had one specifically designed for liquid foundation application. I used to use those triangular sponges for applying my makeup but they were so gross! They would pretty much just smear the foundation all over my face, leaving streaks along the way, and it never actually blended very well. They would smell horrible too. The Yalmeh Foundation brush is really just something amazing! It is tapered at the end for a more even application, the bristles are super dense so you can avoid streaks, and the bristles do not fall out. When applying the foundation, I just dab the brush into the foundation and then apply to my cheeks, forehead and chin, then I use circular motions to evenly distribute it. The brush blends the makeup flawlessly into your hairline too so you don't have that makeup line or hair filled with foundation! To wash, just rinse, and use a small amount of shampoo and air dry or use a blow dryer! You can get yours HERE!

Review: Love Trap eBook!

*Mommy's Makin' It received this eBook to facilitate this review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
OK! I always have to be reading a new book and I am so glad that I (Jessica) from Mommy's Makin' It received this eBook to review. Love Trap is one of those not totally on edge but definitely borderline books! It was very exciting to read and I just couldn't put it down. The main character in the book Daphne, has one real dream, to get her Doctors license back. The story behind her losing her license is really interesting and definitely plays a huge role in this book. Her daughter Natalie and her now live in Israel and she is just trying to get her foot back in the door, working at hospitals and such, when she gets a real dream job! Now working on getting her license back she befriends a woman who takes to her daughter Natalie almost instantly. Things start to get weird when Tamara and Natalie start to spend too much time together, and the man that hired her for the job just seems to want too much. Daphne is definitely lonely and looking for Love in all the wrong places. What will come of her new love interest Amos? What is down the hall from her office behind the hidden door? This book is sexy and fun yet mysterious at parts. There are many twists and turns, most of which I really didn't see coming, or when I thought something was going to happen, it winds up being something different entirely. This is definitely a great book! I couldn't put it down and wound up finishing it in 3 days! Get your copy HERE!

Delicates Laundry Wash Bags Review!

*Mommy's Makin' It received Laundry Bags to facilitate this review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
When you wash your delicate items, do they sometimes get tangled? Maybe the clasp on your bra snaps.... or maybe your just tired of losing socks. These Inside Smarts Laundry bags are here to rescue your laundry conundrum! This set comes with 4 silky mesh bags, 2 large and 2 small, that will be sure to fit all of your garments!
Mommy's Makin' It received these Inside Smarts Mesh Laundry Bags. I have never had laundry bags before but I knew I needed them! I have thrown away 3 of my favorite bras in the past year because they somehow got tangled in the laundry and the clasps wound up getting smooshed flat, ripped out, or stretched out. I was pretty much annoyed with my laundry! Now, I can fit my bras, undies, delicates, and even my socks in these bags to wash with my regular laundry. They act as dirty laundry bags too so I just keep the bags with my hamper and when I take off my clothes I separate my socks, undies, and bras into these bags! The mesh is super tight and these bags are definitely high quality. The zipper even has a little cubby so you can push it under the elastic to hold it down so it doesn't snag on anything in the wash. Another plus, I don't lose socks anymore! Just don't shove too much in one bag or it won't actually wash. You can get yours HERE!

Glo 2 Go Tanning Cloths Review + Giveaway!

Mommy's Makin' It received Glo2Go to facilitate this review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
 Many people can't tan in the sun, or can't because of medical reasons. Many of us just want a natural tan without having to lie in a booth, or potentially ruin our skin! Maybe you are just super sick of those streaky lotions and foams that never seem to go on even. These Glo2Go Self Tanning Towelettes from Thermalabs is the answer! These towelettes are a  Natural Healthy Overnight Indoor Quick Tan for Legs, Arms and Face with 70% Organic Body Cream Formula for Light, Pale, Fair, Medium, Olive or Dark Summer Skin Complexion. 100% True Streak Free and Waterproof Guarantee, with Super Easy Application.



Jessica from Mommy's Makin' It received these Glo2Glo Towelettes and I am SO impressed! I am VERY pale. Like... pretty much Casper esque. I have tried to tan in a booth... I burn... I have tried those creams and lotions, nope and nope... I actually look like an orange with those creams! The tone was always off for my skin color. I tried the foam AND the mitt.... I had streaks on my skin for weeks! As you can see in my picture after only 3 hours I was already developing a really nice glowing tan! I love that the box has a spot where the towelettes dispense one at a time! You just grab one, open the pack, rub on your skin (sparingly around your knees, ankles, and elbows), and wait! It says that the tan takes about 4 hours but I think it must have been about 5 or 6 hours before I saw the full tan (but I did see it developing at 3 hours). These have NO smell! I used to hate the spray on tan smell but this really has no smell at all! Though these towelettes are really amazing, I found that I had to use 3 towelettes. One for my face, neck, and chest, one for my arms and shoulders, and one for my legs. You can grab your Glow2Go Self Tanning Towelettes HERE!
Do you want to Win!? Tell me below why you really need a tan and enter to win on the form! Contest will run until February 4th at 11:59PM EST.



Open to US residents ages 18 and over. If you win this prize you will receive an email from mommysmakinit@gmail.com. Winner will have 48 hours to respond.

REVIEW! Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse Bundle!

*Mommy's Makin' It received this product to facilitate this review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.



We have all heard about Garcinia Cambogia by now! It is very popular and it is proven to help boost weight loss! Did you know that using Garcia alone may not be the answer? Have you thought about doing a cleanse as well? Well now there is a combo product! Pure Garcia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse will really help boost your weight loss with maximum results! The Garcia Cambogia is 100% Pure with no fillers, binders, and it's vegetarian. Slender Cleanse is an all natural gentle and controllable method to break up and flush away POUNDS of unwanted toxins and build up from the walls of your colon and intestines.

Jessica from Mommy's Makin' It received this Garcinia and Cleanse Bundle. Well, by now you all know that I started my weight loss journey in November of 2013. I weighed 205 pounds and I was just unhealthy. I have tried my different weight loss methods over the past year and I have found that Garcinia did work for me. Once I hit a plateau I knew that I needed something to really help boost my weight loss! About 2 weeks ago I was about 154. My weight has been fluctuating within 10 pounds and it is really starting to irk me that it won't stay off. This cleanse thought, has been AWESOME! I was very nervous at first, but I know I needed a detox. I had no cramping, and I wasn't running to the bathroom every 5 seconds which is really good and very different than other cleanses. This cleanse combined with the Garcinia has been the most effective combination I have found so far! My pants are very loose on my waist! I lost a few pounds, but all of my bloating and what I am assuming was water weight is rapidly disappearing! I just need to start incorporating some exercise to tone my body! I am very happy with this product and I definitely recommend this to anyone that needs to boost their weight loss! Get your bundle HERE!

Signature Mini Meals! + 15 Meal Suggestions!


Here's a fun idea for kid-friendly meals that will also help you get rid of some leftovers!  You'll be able to get creative with this recipe idea, and even be able to make several mini meals in one muffin pan - all different to suit your taste!  Picky eaters in the family?  This allows you to customize each meal, and cater to those with specific requirements for theirs.
For a base, use this recipe:
* 1/2 cup Bisquick
* 1/2 cup milk 
* 2 eggs

Mix together and put about 1 tablespoon in each muffin cup, and if you choose to, add another tablespoon to the top of your mixtures (listed below)!  Use a spatula to spread the mixture around in each cup to coat the sides.  Alternatively, you can use plain pancake mix, and forgo the milk and egg.

Now comes the fun!  You'll fill the cups the rest of the way up with leftover chicken and veggies, steak shreds, shrimp or whatever else you have laying around or need to eat up before it goes bad!  Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes.  Even better, you'll be able to freeze these in freezer bags, take them for lunches and re-heat in the microwave!  Sprinkle your favorite seasoning on top for an extra bit of flavoring, before popping into the oven.

FREE Disney Frozen Inspired Printable Valentines + FREE Printable Frozen Paper Doll Sets!



Kids still going crazy over Frozen everything!? You can bet their Valentines this year will be Frozen, as well!  Get some FREE printable Disney Frozen inspired Valentines HERE!  These will make for some inexpensive, fun and popular Valentines this year!



Also, don't forget to head to the Paper Dolls by Cory Facebook Page to score some FREE printable Disney Frozen inspired paper dolls!  These would be lots of fun to throw in with Valentine's Day cards for the Frozen fans in your life (or the kids'!)
We encourage you to "like" the Paper Dolls by Cory Facebook Page - although it's not a requirement to get the free printables!  That way, you'll see all of the new dolls as they are released!
