Fall into Polish! Nail Polish Giveaway

Its that time of month again and you know what that means! Another Nail polish giveaway from Life of a Mad Typer.

Lets see what goodies we can giveaway this time!

While trying to pick out the Nail Polish from the giveaway box I was inspired by the season. Everyone is starting to do fall manicures and so I picked shades I believe would be popular this fall.




In this bundle:
~Peroxide whitening gel 
(to help with any staining from darker colors)
~Finger Paints Dont make a scene
~Finger Paints Sketch-y
~China Glaze Cracked Medallion
~Essence Date in the moonlight
~Hard candy show girl in monte carlo

Don't ask me what the glitter is for I just wanted to toss in a little more sparkle into this giveaway.

So good luck all! 

<3

Who loves Nail Polish? If you are anything like me, then you will definitely want to get in on this. I love being able to constantly change my nail polish colors to suit my feelings, outfit or holiday. Having a nice collection of nail polish is awesome! I don't feel like I am ready to face the day until my nails are done.

One Grace Place Pillows Review

I absolutely love pillows and because of my addiction, so does my whole family. We have pillows everywhere, the beds, the couches and even in the floors. I love being able to decorate with pillows because you can add different designs, shapes or pops of color wherever you want to. 

I recently had the opportunity to work with One Grace Place

One Grace Place specializes in Children's bedding and accessories, from babies all the way up to teenagers.
With so many themes and designs to fit any child, boy or girl. Whether you are looking for just bedding, or the whole set up including lamps and rugs, One Grace Place has it all.  

I was graciously provided with quite a few pillows to review. When choosing my items for review, I decided to go with pillows that our 3 year old twins, Tyrsson and Aeric would enjoy. You can only imagine my excitement when the box arrived. 


First, they came packaged wonderfully. Each pillow is individually wrapped and they each have a ribbon and tag on them inside the bags. I love how so much care is taken to make sure the pillows arrive nicely. This is the first time that I have received pillows in the mail to find them individually wrapped, all others are just shoved inside a box with no covering at all. 

I chose a letter to represent each of them and also a shape that they would enjoy. Being 3 years old, they are not hard to shop for, but One Grace Place had so many beautifully designed pillows, it took me a while to narrow down my choices. 








Jazzie Jungle Boy: Alligator Pillow

Not only are One Grace Place's pillows absolutely adorable, but they are so well made and extremely soft.. A lot of time is taken with these pillows and you can clearly see that with each individual pillow. Being that these pillows were for my 3 year olds, I was a little worried because all of my children are extremely energetic and rough on everything.

The are typical children and love to run and play, not to mention, have pillows fights. Pillows typically do not last long in our house. Usually within a week of getting a pillow, someones has a hole or tear in it somewhere. We have had the One Grace Place pillows for about a month now and I am so impressed. No matter what my twins put them through, they have stood up to the test. Through all the pillow fights, playing around and just laying back on them in general, not the first hole is to be found so far. This says a lot to me about the quality when a product can hold up to what my rambunctious children put them through. These pillows are made to last!

Right now throughout the month of October, One Grace Place has a sale going on HERE where you can save 10% on all orders. You can also save an additional 20% off Shower Curtains, Canvas Art and Infant Accessory Sets. Don't miss out on this sale. Shop Today!!!

Cemetery Slime Punch Recipe

Try this nonalcoholic punch at your next Halloween bash. Since little ghouls and goblins will likely be pumped up on sugar from trick-or-treat bags, this punch made from diet root beer and frozen yogurt won't add to the impact.


Ingredients:
2 liters diet root beer 

24 gummy worms, plus more if desired 

1 pint low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt 

1 pint low-fat chocolate frozen yogurt


Preparation:
Arrange the gummy worms in a 12-compartment ice tray, letting them hang out over the edges of the tray. 

Fill with root beer and freeze at least four hours or overnight.

With a small ice cream scoop, fill the bottom of a one-gallon punch bowl with scoops of both frozen yogurts, using the full container of each. Very slowly fill the punch bowl with root beer, which will foam up to create the "slime."

Float the wormy ice cubes on top of the punch. Fill each punch cup with a scoop of ice cream and an ice cube. Float additional worms on top of the punch or in each glass.

Serves 12-15

Gravestone Lollipop Covers

Gravestone Lollipop Covers



To make these clever covers for candy suckers, save the tombstone image and follow the steps below:



Step 1: For each lollipop, print and cut out two tombstones, then glue them, faceup, to a sheet of black construction paper with a glue stick. When dry, cut around each tombstone, leaving a black construction-paper border, as shown.

Step 2: Turn one tombstone facedown and glide the glue stick along its outer edges at the top and sides only. Place the other tombstone on top of it, faceup. Press the edges together to create one cover. Let dry.

Step 3: Use a fine-tipped black Sharpie to spell out "RIP" — or a guest's name — on one side.

Step 4: Repeat directions above to create additional lollipop covers. Insert candy. Place floral foam in a bowl and stand lollipops in the foam. Then fill the bowl with crushed Oreo's to serve as the dirt in your graveyard.

Halloween Safety Tips


Everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, but not when it comes to child safety. There are several easy and effective behaviors that parents can share with kids to help reduce their risk of injury.

Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.

Hard Facts

On average, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.

Top Tips

When selecting a costume make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.

Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors. Since masks can sometimes obstruct a child’s vision, try non-toxic face paint and makeup whenever possible.

Have kids use glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.

Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.

Check treats for signs of tampering before children are allowed to eat them.

Remind children to eat only treats in their original, unopened wrappers.

Candy should be thrown away if the wrapper is faded or torn, or if the candy is unwrapped.

Drive Extra Safely on Halloween

Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.

Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.

Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.

Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.

Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.
