GIVEAWAY ~ Purex PowerShot Detergent



The best part of being a Purex Insider is getting to try their new products before they are widely available.  I love seeing all the great new things they have to offer. Last month I got a box containing their new Purex® PowerShot detergent and I couldn't wait to do some laundry and try it out.  This detergent is so awesome,  it literally does the measuring for you!




I received the Purex® PowerShot Mountain Breeze fragrance.  It's super easy to use.  Flip, Dose, Done! One flip = one load.  Got a large or super-dirty load to do?  Use two flips!  I love this easy measure liquid detergent from Purex!






Purex® PowerShot is super-concentrated, so don't be alarmed when you see how little is needed to get your clothes clean! It contains 50% more stain fighting power in every drop, vs regular Purex detergent.  It's also available in Natural Elements Linen & Lilies fragrance.



My son is learning how to do laundry and he thinks this new auto-dosing technology is the best! We have used this detergent since late January and really are enjoying the fragrance, the clean clothes we get and of course, we love how easy it is to use.   And one other feature - this is a no spill detergent bottle! It's only going to dispense if you flip it upside down and open the lid!

Check out the rafflecopter widget below to find out how you can enter to win two coupons for FREE bottles of Purex® PowerShot!

IKEA Campaign: Brighter Lives For Refugees

Helping Refugees, IKEA Foundation and UNHCR Provide Sustainable                               Lighting and Access to Primary Education


(Atlanta, GA - January 28, 2015) The Brighter Lives for Refugees campaign returns to make a difference and create a better everyday life for the many refugees living around the world. Starting February 1 and running till March 28, 2015, for every LED light bulb purchased in IKEA stores, the IKEA Foundation will donate one euro ($1.16 *) to help UNHCR light refugee camps— making them a safer, more suitable place for the families who live there. In its first year (2014), the Brighter Lives for Refugees campaign, raised $10.6 million (€7.7 million**) globally, and the US alone raised over $570,000 through IKEA co-worker and customer support.

Today there are almost 13 million refugees *** under UNHCR’s care, half of whom are children. For those refugees living in camps, all livelihoods, social and educational activities usually stop after sundown, because refugee camps can be extremely dark places. Thanks to the Brighter Lives for Refugees campaign, many now have lighting and energy solutions.

Part of the funds from last year’s campaign have been used to help over 11,000 Syrian refugees living in Azraq refugee camp, Jordan, by providing families with a solar-powered lantern, which can be used for mobile-phone charging and as a light source so families can carry on with their everyday activities. Solar lanterns allow girls and boys to study after dark, helping them with their education and progress in school. Lanterns and solar street lights mean that adults can continue working and communities can have social gatherings after sunset. 

IKEA continues to lead in sustainable business practices. In October 2012, IKEA US announced it would make a bold move to sell only LED lights in all its US stores by 2016, thereby enabling millions of people to live a more sustainable life at home and save on their energy bills. 

*one euro (€1) = $1.16 on January 20, 2015
** one euro (€1) = $1.38 on March 20, 2014

Reese's Spreads make delicious treats!

We received a Reese's Spreads VoxBox from Influenster and had the opportunity to try this rich, creamy treat!  We thought about all the ways we could use it - including checking out pinterest - but finally decided to pair it with some classics!



This creamy and delicious spread is amazing on apple slices.  Then add a few pretzels dipped in it, and the saltiness pairs perfectly with the sweet apples!   The next day for breakfast, David spread his waffles with Reese's spread and topped that with apple slices.  Unfortunately Mama was too slow with the camera - he ate them before I could get a picture!

Reese's Spreads are a great addition to your after-school snack cabinet!  What's your favorite way to use this tasty spread?


I received a free jar of Reese's Spreads to try in order to share it with my readers.  No other compensation was received!
