Review: Pley presents Disney Princess subscription boxes!

*Disclosure: I received this box to review for myself. All opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

My daughter, Vivian, is 7 years old and is always excited when boxes come in the mail. Even if they are just full of uninteresting things like cat food or parts for her dad's bicycles. But recently we received a box that was for her, and it lived up to all of her hopes and dreams! It was a Disney Princess mystery box from Pley, and it was wonderful!

These Disney Princess mystery boxes are available every two months and each one contains 4-8 Disney Princess toys, accessories and clothing. This month's box had a Beauty and the Beast theme. Vivian's box had a great selection of toy figurines, a very nice princess crown, and a pretty t-shirt. She really loved that the box transformed into a castle, which she had fun coloring with her grandmother.

If there's a Disney Princess fan in your life, these subscription boxes would make a really fun gift! Vivian and I highly recommend them!

Review: Zim's Max Crack Creme

*Disclosure: I was sent this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

Even though I live in Seattle, where winter is very rainy, I still struggle with dry skin during the winter time. And it's hard to deal with once my skin gets cracked and dry and painful. I have a drawer full of lotions and body butters and creams that work to various levels of success. But now I have a new favorite one, Zim's Max Crack Creme. I received a couple of bottles of this great product, in both the creamy daytime formula and the original liquid formula.

I was really impressed with how both of these worked. They really did help restore my dry skin and repaired even the more cracked and damaged areas. Of the two,  my favorite was the creamy daytime formula, just because it was a little easier for me to apply than the liquid formula (which is designed to use at night). But both of these are going to remain in use for me this winter and spring!
