Hard Candy Fragrances: Long Lasting Yumminess For Your Senses

Posted by on Oct 5, 2017

When you think of hard candy, you think of long lasting yumminess for your senses. Well you will experience the same with HARD CANDY fragrances. This brand is sold exclusively at Walmart and you will NEED to get down there and get these for yourself. The two new fragrances PINK and BLACK are fashion forward and will be an excellent accessory to any outfit, any day of the week.  And bonus, they are named after two of my daughter’s favorite colors.

PINK (fragrance and body mist)


A fashionable fragrance that evokes freshness and warmth. Exhilarate your senses with this romantic, floral must that leaves and endless trail of beautiful scent.


Top notes- California tangerine and pink passion fruit

Mid notes- Fluffy Pink Peony and Sheer Jasmine

Lower notes- Vanilla sugar and sensual musk


BLACK (fragrance and mist)


A fashionable fragrance that evokes a cool sophistication of sweet scents. Exhilarate your senses with this scents that offer an endless trail of floral, fruit and sugared notes.


Top notes- Lush kiwi and Juicy mango

Mid notes- quince blossom and Vanilla Absolute

Lower notes- Sugared Iris and Warm Amber

My almost 11 (going on 15) daughter and I tried both as we wanted to see which were more “us”. We loved both, as they were fresh, light and you could really wear as an everyday fragrance and/or mist. Since we are BOTH obsessed with lotions, fragrances and mists, this was a plus for us. I decided that the Hard Candy PINK seemed more what I was looking for and the Hard Candy BLACK my daughter absolutely loved. I also loved that it “sprays and stays”. We sprayed some as we walked out the door to run errands, ended up going to lunch, a little shopping and a movie. When we got home, I had her put her clothes in the hamper. I could STILL smell her Hard Candy BLACK. Yep the yumminess lasted the entire day without losing its scent!

A great scent. A great deal. A great addition to your fashion style. Hard Candy PINK and BLACK. Decide who YOU will be!

Lugz: Be Proud of Your Shoes!

Posted by on Aug 29, 2017

LUGZ Boots

I am woman…hear me…walk? Yes. walk. I AM a woman, which means shoes are something that is an innate NEED, not simply a want. So when you hear my walking, it means I am walking with one sole purpose…like what I did there? Yep. I’m walking to show off my shoes, boots or heels! So now I’d like to introduce you to Lugz. Love the Lugz!

Always an innovator and leader in footwear, Lugz first made a name for itself in October of 1993, bringing its first line of boots to market, with the initial product consisting of two styles of boots, a quilted vest and a pair of jeans.

Soon Lugz was endorsed by key players from the world of hip hop and has continued to do so through out the years. One such collaboration led Lugz to breathe life to a whole new category of footwear with the introduction of the first ever celebrity-endorsed “Funk Master Flex” urban driving shoe. This was only the beginning as support then lead to a collaborative line with hip-hop superstar Bryan “Baby” Williams, aka “Birdman” with his own series of sneakers and boots.

From its inception, Lugz footwear has been an innovator in the footwear market from its signature styles, to creating trendsetting styles beyond boots and has added casual shoes and athletics to the mix for the Lugz men, Lugz women and Lugz kids lines.


Just take a look at these beauties! They are the Women’s Seabrook. They are cute, stylish and definitely keep my feet comfy when I’m on them all day teaching little 3 year olds. I LOVE the black and fuschia, but they also come in Aqua/White/Cloud, Black/Nautical Blue/White, White/Cloud,  Onyx/White. and Black/White. CUTE!! So many cute colors to fit your style to a “T”. They also have the following;

  • Canvas upper
  • Cotton drill lining
  • Waxy finish laces
  • Metal eyelets & classic Lugz hardware
  • Durable rubber outsole

Everything you need to strut your stuff in STYLE! And let’s be honest. For THIS woman…wearing stylish shoes is really when I roar…just sayin’. I have worn these and it never fails that I get compliments from my fellow shoe loving mamas. Thanks ladies! And thank you Lugz! You are the jelly to my jelly roll…The Cheese to my macaroni…The perfect fit to my foot.

Plus, don’t forget to sign up for the LUGZ newsletter so you can be entered to win a pair of free LUGZ directly from them!

Utah Deal: Half Off Permanent Cosmetics + My Experience!

Posted by on Jul 18, 2017

Ali from Rise & Shine Permanent Cosmetics is offering an amazing deal to Mamas on a Dime readers! Just let Ali know you heard about her from us and you can save half price on all services!

  • Eyeliner (Both Eyes) $300 $150!
  • Eyebrows (Both Brows) $300 $150!
  • Lip Fill $400 $200!
  • Lip Liner $175 $87.50
  • Beauty Mark $45 $22.50

If you have looked into getting permanent makeup before, you know just what an amazing deal this is. And this deal includes one FREE touch up, PLUS $35 touch ups for life!

I had Ali do my eyeliner last week and I couldn’t be more pleased. The whole process takes about two hours. But your eyes have been numbed and you are relaxed the whole time. Ali is great at letting you know what to expect and exactly what she is doing at each step. They took a couple of days to get used to, but now I’m in love. I love how much prettier I feel without every putting on a stitch of makeup! I know you will love yours too!

  • Here is a step by step of the whole process. Ali had me wear my regular eyeliner to my appointment so she could see just how I like it and there was no guesswork. I think cleaned off all my eye makeup, laid down on a comfy table and closed my eyes. Ali then put on some numbing cream and chatted with me while it took effect. There was no awkward waiting. No wondering what was coming next. None of that weirdness. Ali totally made me feel at ease every single step of the way!
  • Then Ali brought out the needle. Needle? Honestly I don’t even know. I never really saw it. But there was no pain. Zero. The numbing cream did its job and since Ali doesn’t use a machine there were no creepy noises to weird me out. Ali did her thing while making sure it never hurt me and in no time it was over. The most uncomfortable thing for me for me was having my eye slightly open part of the time so she could get the ink where it needed to go. I desperately wanted to close my eyes. Ha! But, that’s it! Ali told me how to treat my eyes for the next few days, let me know about follow ups, answered any questions I had, and I was on my way.


Below you can see my before and after pics. They aren’t the greatest pictures ever since I took them myself, but you can get an idea of just how awesome your new makeup can look. Keep in mind, I’m not wearing any makeup at all in either picture. There are also more pictures on the Rise & Shine Facebook page.

Next up? Eyebrows! I will totally be giving you the low down on that one too!

My every birthday, Christmas, Easter and yes, even Memorial Day wish came true the day I found out I was going to have a little girl. Gone were the days of me shopping with my bestie Charity as she was able to peruse the girl’s section of the store and have her arms FULL of frills, bows and dresses galore, while I was “stuck” in the boy section of the store looking for cute stuff, don’t get me wrong. But not necessarily dresses, bows, jewelry, and accessories. JEWELRY!!  I was so ready to shop for jewelry. Yes. I may have squealed like my toddler daughter when I was given the opportunity to check out some jewelry from Lily Nily. I admit it. FULLY.

Sonicblend Antimicrobial Sonic Makeup Brush

Posted by on Jul 31, 2016


About sonicBLEND:

sonicBLEND is the first of its kind makeup brush that applies makeup at sonic speeds up to 200 times per second and has built in protection against microbial contamination so the brush stays cleaner, fresher longer.

Intended for comfort and control the ergonomically designed sonicBLEND uses gentle sonic movements to easily sweep on foundation without leaving lines or streaks.

Ideal for applying foundation, blush, contour, highlight, setting powder and bronzer. Effortlessly blends your favorite liquid or powder makeup in extra fine layers for natural looking airbrushed-like results every time.

Creates better coverage too so you use less makeup. And, sonicBLEND can help improve the overall health and condition of your skin by minimizing clogged pores as well as irritation from rubbing and stretching the skin which can occur with traditional makeup application.



I don’t know about you, but as I get older I am getting busier and busier. My days are filled with backpacks, soccer practice, PTA meetings, and homework. Not a whole lot of me time. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to look my best. It just means I need to find some shortcuts to get the look I want with the time I actually have. Enter the sonicBLEND makeup brush.

This little beauty tool is simply amazing! It applies and blends your makeup perfectly. And not just your foundation. This baby works on all of your makeup. You can use this one for everything! Okay, maybe not every single brush. But most of them. That means instead of having a billion brushes you can just have one. Score!

Plus, it’s fast. It’s electric. That’s right, an electric beauty brush. It comes with a USB charger and an antimicrobial brush head. That means you won’t have to worry about germs with your brush or replacing the batteries. I mean, anything that can be charged without having batteries is a win in my book. But really, not worrying about germs is HUGE people.

I’ve had so many complements on my makeup since using this brush. It looks like it’s been professionally done. I am beyond pleased. I would absolutely recommend you check it out!


Buy It:

Get your own sonicBLEND by Michael Todd Beauty for $99.99. You can choose from black, pink, or tortoise shell.
