Ecogear Eco-Friendly Backpacks at Great Prices

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
It's time to go back to school and a new backpack is always on the top of students' wish lists. This year, make it a point to get a stylish, eco-friendly backpack. Ecogear is committed to creating bags that have a low impact on the environment. All of their bags are made with Repreve - recycled fiber from plastic bottles.
Ecogear Backpacks are wonderful! They offer interior and exterior pockets galore, with room for everything students need, from kindergarten through a doctorate degree. These backpacks even specially padded pockets that provide protection for laptops. Best of all, these backpacks are offered at an incredibly low price!
The two backpacks I received are the Bighorn 17 (the gray backpack pictured) and the Flash Backpack (the blue backpack pictured). They are impeccably constructed, with careful attention to making sure they are roomy enough to carry everything needed while still providing a lightweight product so students are not weighed down more by the pack.
These two fashionable styles are just some of their line of backpacks, plus Ecogear also offers duffel bags, hip packs, and more. Backpacks are not just for students, though! A backpack is perfect for moms with kids so hands are free while running errands and keeping hold of the kids. Backpacks are used by many professionals in place of the outdated briefcase and teachers love them for their versatility. I always take a backpack when I'm traveling, hiking, and shopping at flea markets and farmer's markets.
At these great prices, you can get a new eco-friendly backpack made from recycled water bottles for everyone in your family. You'll be helping to keep junk out of the landfill while giving your family fabulous backpacks for carrying all their most important things everywhere they go. I am delighted with Ecogear backpacks and highly recommend them!

Nubian Heritage’s Mango Butter Collection

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
My love of mangoes probably began on the Island of Nevis, when I visited there in 2015 for the Nevis Mango Festival. Whether it is blended into a juice or cocktail, chopped for a tropical cobb salad, diced into a delicious salsa, or lathered onto your skin, there are countless ways to enjoy the juicy, summer fruit Mango. I was delighted to discover Nubian Heritage’s Mango Butter Collection, which provides firm, rejuvenated skin ideal for summer, not to mention the tropical fresh scent perfect this time of year. Their products truly smell good enough to eat!
The seed of the mango fruit, first cultivated on the Indian subcontinent and in Eastern Asia more than 4,000 years ago, is revered for its moisturizing benefits. The indigenous people of the tropical rainforest have long used Mango Butter to provide skin a protective moisture barrier against environmental stressors. Rich in carotenoids and antioxidants, Mango Butter provides supple, rejuvenating moisture for the appearance of firmer, healthier looking skin. Nubian Heritage also utilizes Vitamin C in this collection to rejuvenate and firm the skin. These three products that I received are simply wonderful! My skin feels so smooth and soft, plus the wonderful scent lasts a long time.
Nubian Heritage’s Mango Butter Collection of bath and body products is designed for all skin types and includes: Body Wash, Body Lotion, Bar Soap, Hand Cream, Infused Shea Butter, Hand and Body Scrub, Deodorant, and Bath Oil. As with all Nubian Heritage products, the Mango Butter products are cruelty-free, and do not contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oil, petroleum, DEA, synthetic fragrance, or artificial coloring. I absolutely LOVE the Mango Butter Collection and can't wait to try some of the other products.
The Nubian Heritage Mango Butter Collection is available at Vitamin Shoppe stores and online at VitaminShoppe.com.

Bedroom Makeover with The Brickyard Collection Luxurious Quilt Set

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I am always amazed at how easy it is to makeover the look of a bedroom with a change as simple as a new bedding set! Southshore Fine Linens is a fabulous place to shop to find just the right look for any decor. I selected The Brickyard Collection, a luxurious quilt set by Vilano Springs in the color Vilano Steel Gray. Their website describes this look as modern but it fits in perfectly with my old-fashioned farmhouse look!
This premium quilt collection features a beautifully detailed brick pattern on the quilt and pillow shams. The Brickyard Collection comes in twin/twin xl, full/queen, and king/california king sizes. It is lightweight yet cozy, soft yet sleek. The Vilano Steel Gray is a true gray, with gray stitching to create the brick pattern. 
The two pillow shams fit any standard size pillow and the entire look is simply stunning in my white shiplap bedroom. It's the perfect look whether you go for simple, like my gray/white theme, but you could dress it up easily by adding some throw pillows in robin's egg blue or bright yellow. You could even dress it through the fall by adding a black and white buffalo check throw blanket at the foot of the bed, and take it into the holidays with some themed throw pillows featuring reindeer or snowmen.
The brick stitching is perfect over the entire set. It's just thick enough to appear as a thin "mortar" line, while keeping the quilt filling in place for those times you want to run it through the washer and dryer. I love how my white dust ruffle gives it a more feminine look, but this style is also perfect for a male's bedroom due to the more masculine look of the brick lines.
I am thrilled with The Brickyard Collection quilt set! It is breathable enough through the summer months but will also be cozy warm through the winter. It is extremely well constructed and laid out nicely with no wrinkles straight out of the packaging. It comes in many colors, including black, brown, white, bone, steel gray, dark blue, sky blue, taupe, slate, and steel blue. I highly recommend Southshore Linens for all your bedding needs!

Thread Spread True Luxury 1000-Thread-Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Bed Sheet Set

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
A good night's sleep goes beyond a good mattress and a dark room. The type of sheets you put on your bed are just as important. I once slept on a set of sheets at a friend's house that were so slippery that I nearly fell out of bed during the night. When I was much younger and on a tight budget, I bought the cheapest sheets available; they were so hard and scratchy that every time I moved, the rustling woke me up. This week, I've been sleeping on my new Thread Spread sheets and am absolutely delighted with them!
Thread Spread Sheets are true luxury, with beautifully crafted 1000-thread-count sheets made of only pure, 100% long staple Egyptian cotton yarns, which are renowned for their superior quality and durability. These sheets feature a sateen finish that offers a lustrous look, like silk or satin, yet more breathable and natural. They are smooth, soft, and extremely comfortable.
Thread Spread sheets come in twin, queen, king, California king, and split king sizes. My bed is a queen size and my set includes a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillowcases. Whenever I get new sheets, I like to spread them out on the bed before washing the first time, and then again after washing them, to see if they shrink or wrinkle. The photo below is before washing, and the next photo is after washing. They did not shrink and they did not wrinkle. I was amazed!
After just a single night of sleeping on Thread Spread sheets, I knew these sheets were superior. They are super breathable, which is important especially during the hot, humid summers we have here in Kansas. They are incredibly soft and smooth (with no noisy rustling). Even my husband noticed how wonderful the new sheets felt. I highly recommend Thread Spread Sheets! They are available in about 20 different colors so you can choose whatever goes with your bedroom theme. I was surprised that luxury like this is available at such an affordable price. Check out their entire line of bedding!

Better Family Road Trips with a LUNCIA Cooler

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Summer is the time for road trips! Whether it's a day trip to visit one of the many interesting cities or towns in our state, or a weekend trip to another state, it's always a good idea to take along food and drinks rather than repeatedly stop into convenience stores or fast food joints. The bigger your family, the more money you can save by taking along your meals, snacks, and drinks.
This LUNCIA Cooler is, by far, the best cooler we've ever taken on a road trip. There are so many fabulous features in the LUNCIA Cooler! It is expertly designed with airtight zippers to prevent the loss of cool air and minimize any water leakage. It also has a T-shaped zipper slider and serrated zippers for smooth opening and closing.
Designed with bands at the front for hanging handy items, and a bungee cord for hats or helmets, LUNCIA Coolers have thought of everything! Buckle stabilizers at the front and back can be used to attach the cooler when cycling, and adjustable straps at the back are for an umbrella, extra clothes, or even a picnic blanket. The secret pocket at the back is convenient to store bank cards, keys, and other essentials.
The surface and lining of LUNCIA Coolers are made of double-sided waterproof fabric. Without adding volume to the cooler or occupying the inner space, the high-density compact foam provides an effective insulated compartment. Your items will stay cool in a LUNCIA Cooler for up to THREE DAYS! You can easily carry this lightweight LUNCIA Cooler by its adjustable shoulder strap, two side handles, or the comfort strap at the top.
Look how much ROOM is inside! I dropped a whole watermelon in it (see photo below) to give you some perspective on its size. LUNCIA Coolers are designed to serve up to four people for three days. That sounds like an invitation to the perfect weekend road trip. Take your new LUNCIA Cooler to the beach for a weekend of fun in the sun or take it along in the boat on a fishing trip. It's perfect for picnics, outdoor sporting events, concerts in the local parks, and so many other exciting adventures. I know you'll love the LUNCIA Cooler as much as we do!

PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station Playset

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
If you are worried that your children will be susceptible to "summer brain drain" then I have the perfect solution for you! The beloved and recognizable PLAYMOBIL brand is launching a new Mars Mission line this spring. The timing of this launch is perfect since Mars and Space Exploration are topping lots of news stories these days. Plus, July 20 marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon.
Leading the new line of PLAYMOBIL playsets is the amazing Mars Space Station. It's equipped with all the tools needed for space exploration. Inside, the astronauts can enter the central command station or choose one of the modules equipped with everything from sleeping compartments to a lab for analyzing samples. It even features functioning lights so the astronauts can find their way back to the station. The attention to detail in the PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station is amazing!
The PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station took several hours to assemble. It comes in many small pieces because the construction of the playset is part of the fun. It also comes with a booklet filled with detailed images of how to construct the Mars Space Station. My husband wanted to build it, and he spent two full evenings putting it together. The pieces snap together easily, and no glue is required.
I think the Mars Space Station is the perfect rainy weather toy to pull out and keep kids busy, focused, and engaged when they cannot play outside. It is designed for ages 6 years and up, but I think kids under age 10 years might need a bit of mom's or dad's help to get it assembled. PLAYMOBIL did a wonderful job designing this toy and I know children are going to love playing with it!
The PLAYMOBIL Mars Space Station playset is a wonderful way to keep your kids involved in STEM projects over the summer. Even beyond the joy of playing with the astronauts in this extensive space station, I can see this as the starting point of an entire summer filled with exploration of space, the planets, the stars, and more.
Here is the description by PLAYMOBIL of the Mars Space Station:
"Venture into undiscovered worlds with the Mars Space Station! Equipped with all the tools needed for space exploration, the station is ready for a successful mission! Thanks to the functioning lights beneath the central hub, astronauts can easily find their way back to base. Then, enter the illuminated station interior via the front ramp and through the secure rotating hatch. Once inside, astronauts can enter the central command space, from which all missions are monitored, or choose one of the modules, equipped with everything from sleeping compartments for the crew to a lab for analyzing samples. The two free docking stations allow the crew to connect external equipment, such as the Mission Rocket with Launch Site and the Satellite Meteoroid Laser (each sold separately).
During their down time, the astronauts can keep in shape with the station’s fitness equipment. To access the interior, pull off the station’s removable roof and get hands on with all aspects of the mission. The movable laser gun helps protect against unknown elements, while the alarm lights and sound warn against any threats. Other sound effects, including radio contact, jet propulsion, and background space noises, add to the fun and bring the mission to life! And, what would space adventures be without a trusty robot to guide you? The included robot may be a machine, but watch out for all its different faces. Turning its eyes will change its facial expression. Set includes two astronauts, one robot, space station, computer, tools, food supplies, space crystals, telescope, video recorder, and tons of other accessories."
