We got an AWESOME gift set from Nautica! Their new Nautica Life cologne with matching shower gel and after shave. This scent is Ivory Coast Ginger, Sea Sale, and Mandarin. This scent is also very woodsy and extremely masculine but with undertones of lavender, violet, and sage it appeals to woman as well. I made my boyfriend be the tester and he got lots of compliments on it while he was at work.
As the day goes on the scent gets more blended and creates a unique scent that is second to none. This cologne embodies the essence of what Nautica scents are. This scent gives a zest on how you appeal to the senses of everyone you meet. Thus is why its called Nautica Life.
The shower gel is the same scent as the cologne and leaves you moisturized and smelling great straight out of the shower. The After Shave is also the same scent. It leaves your skin silky smooth after shaving and helps prevent your skin from drying out, similar to lip balm but for your face!

We received this AWESOME Subscription box from Taste Trunk, and the stuff is AMAZING!! Each item came with recipe cards or recipes on the packaging. Our box included Hawaiian Lava Salt from the San Francisco Salt Company, Napa Valley Raspberry Vinegar, White Truffle Oil, Spiceologist, and Urban Accents Parmesan Mediterranean Veggie Roaster.
We used the recipes it came with to create some AMAZING food and made some of
our own! We uses the Parmesan Mediterranean Veggie Roaster to make this delish backed butternut squash! Even my somewhat picky two-year old would eat it. We also made some amazing homemade mashed potatoes with the Hawaiian Lava Salt. The contrast between the white from the potatoes and the black salt looks great on a plate and would be amazing for holiday parties. We also made Cauliflower Soup with the Truffle oil, it was super yummy! The Truffle oil was made from extra virgin olive and white truffles which were found by truffle pigs what are specially trained to look for them. Pretty much everything in this box is amazing!
They have loads of information here on their website under their FAQ page! Everything from delivery day information to Subscriptions and stock photos you can use if you buy these for your friends and family! They also set up business subscriptions for those of you whom like to give these out as holiday gifts to employees. Under their Kitchen notes tab they have recipes they release with the boxes that are exclusive to them. One in particular that looked super yummy is the Homemade Greek Yogurt which looks super easy to make.
You can also do a build your own box! So you get to choose a theme or a set of items individually for your Taste Trunk! You can also pick items to suit your specific diet such as Vegan foods and gluten free. They even have catagories for organic and kitchen supplies!
At our house we eat ALOT of pasta, like we love pasta.So when we were given the opportunity to review Botticelli again we jumped on it! They use 100% Italian tomatoes and the highest quality. They produce their pasta sauces from scratch in small batches,using natural ingredients. The sauces and pasta we received have ingredients we can pronounce so nothing funky great for if you need to avoid chemicals or preservatives! The pastas cook extremely well too which means the pasta doesnt get soggy and ruin your great pasta sauces or dishes. In total we received a package of angel hair pasta, a bowtie pasta, their great tomato and basil sauce and olive bruscetta.
For this dish we used their angel hair pasta and the Tomato and Basil sauce we
received. It was absolutely delicious and looks as good as it tasted, so if your finicky about pretty foods and want to impress guests this would definately do so!
For the second dish we made we used their Olive Oils and bow tie pasta to make homemade Roasted butternut bell pepper pasta sauce! The olive oil paired perfectly with the subtle flavors of the herbs and flavors to creat a well balanced meal!
Botticelli makes other fine products which include Olive Oils, vinegar
Pastas and Red Peppers
Five generations of experience has made Botticelli Olive Oil a celebration of flavor.
Made from only the finest, ripe olives grown in the sun-drenched, rich soils of the Mediterranean terrain, we offer a wide selection of flavors for all your cooking needs.
We also offer a complete line of Botticelli products to bring you a full, delectable cuisine experience.
From our table to yours, savor the taste of only the highest quality products, and a rich history of tradition and fine cooking. Enjoy!
So we received THREE awesome dolls from Aurora Gifts! A raggedy Andy , raggedy Annie, and a Cutie Curls doll that looks like my daughter! I love Raggedy Andy and Annie dolls I actually collected them when I was little. These new raggedy dolls have a darker skin complexion and hair than the originals which is a nice variation! They still sport the original outfits in blue, red, and white. The faces are embroidered with button eyes that can’t pop off so these are safe for your infants !
The Cutie Curls doll features very long curly hair, with green eyes. Her fashionable green dress is very similar to something you would see in stores for young girls with the pink tulle and polka dots! Her olive skin and green eyes mean she has a coloring which is hard to find. This doll has a embroidered face as well which means nothign can pop off her face either making her safe for toddlers as well. My two year old daughter LOVES this doll. She carries her around every where and insists on me doing her hair.

It is a cloudy gray day here in Spring Hill, Florida. It rained so much last night that I thought I was going to have to start gathering animals 2×2 and build and Ark.. Well at least my grass does not look like a brown desert and my rose bushes got drunk with tasty rain water. I’m so excited for Christmas to come and see the smiles on my kids when they open their gifts on Christmas Day, And oh my goodness it will be time to splurge and indulge my self with food. We are having Ham and Marshmallow covered Sweet Potatoes and of course Herb Regular Potatoes and My favorite is the stuffing I could eat that all year long. I’m going to make a vegetable tray too that we can snack on until the feast is ready. So What are your plans for Christmas Dinner? Do you have any special traditions that you do each year ? well wishing you all a Blessed Day ~ Laura
VeggieTales creator, Phil Vischer, along with our new favorite reporter, Buck Denver, took us on an amazing journey into the world’s most popular holiday. Buck decides to throw a Christmas party, and invites all of his friends. As they are traveling to Buck’s cabin in the woods, they each tell us a different part of the Christmas story and how it came to be called “Christmas.” You’ll learn all about the following:
Where does the word Christmas come from?
When was Jesus born? (that one really surprised us!)
What do Christmas trees have to do with Jesus?
Who is St. Nicholas?
What is Hanukkah? (Did you know that Christians can celebrate Hanukkah as well? There’s a reason!)
Who is Emmanuel … and what does it mean?
The Christmas Story (which most of us are familiar with) from Luke 2
The movie lasted about an hour and Bellamie watched it all the way through. You know its good if a 22 month old will stay entertained that long!
