❄NEW Ladies Winter Styles❄

❆Empire❆Tallulah❆Tambora❆Flirt Hi Zip❆


I love the change of the seasons and for me, fall to winter means time for new boots! I love the new ladies designs this season.  There is a style of boot for every fashion sense and every occasion! Whether you are looking for a practical water resistant, slip resistant snow boot, bold fashion colors, faux fur topped, velvet uppers, leather zip ups, hi or mid height or a combination of each and all very comfortable and well made, there really is something for every woman's style. I love them all for different reasons.  I think they make a great addition to any winter wardrobe and a very nice holiday gift as well!

 I was excited to get this 4lb box of Old Time Candy, candy you ate as a kid! This year I chose the 1970's decade box for my daughter, who is nostalgic and takes her candy very seriously! I think this is such a great idea for a gift.  What better, than to take someone back down memory lane to the candy they ate as a kid? I think its really fun to choose the decade you grew up with as a kid or to get a decade of what your Mother, or Grandfather may have grew up with!  I love that this box is completely full of candy, nicely packaged in a sturdy colorful box, perfect for gift giving.  I think these candy boxes from specific decades make great milestone birthday gifts and are perfect for the holidays as well, when we all like to take a little stroll down memory lane, to when we were a kid.

NEW from 3DLightFX

and so many more to choose from

Easy to follow Video Instructions

How to install your 3D Crack Sticker

1. Unfold sticker and flatten creases.
2. Place sticker at desired location, place tape (painter’s tape or similar) at the edge of the top of the sticker and mark arrows on tape and sticker for placement reference.
3. Carefully remove the back of the sticker.
4. Align arrows and carefully stick the top (top 1-2 inches) of the sticker to wall, make sure you hold the bottom portion away from wall.
5. Use a credit card or dull flat surface to slowly adhere the sticker, pressing against the paper backing, removing any air bubbles that may arise, remember to keep the bottom part of the sticker off the wall as you work your way down, out and towards the edges until the end.
6. Very slowly peel off the paper from the wall, making sure that the (fine edges) are stuck to wall. If any of the sticker peels up with the paper, simply put back against wall and press firmly with credit card until sticker adheres to wall.
7. Drill a hole in the spaces marked X and inset the wall plug, provided. Insert the screws provided to approximately ¾ of the way and place light onto screws.
8. Enjoy!

I was super excited to get this Superman S-Shield from 3DLightFX.  As you can see from the collage above, it was very easy to apply to the wall. It comes with step by step simple instructions and I had it on the wall and lit up in no time at all! I have it in our little boys room who is not quite 1 yet and it works great as a night light, so we can check on him without turning on the overhead light in his room.  It turns on and off again with a simple touch to the top of the shield.  I think it looks great in his room and fits perfectly with his Superman VS Batman room.  I think these lights are great and come in so many different characters for both boys and girls and I know a lot of adults who love them just as much! These would make great gifts for girls, boys, teens and adults.

Hearts For Hearts Girls - Rahel (Ethiopia) doll review

💑@HeartsForHeartsGirls 💑


 #hearts4heartsgirls #heartsforhearts #agentsofchange #HFHG  #HFHGdolls

Support empowering girls to be Agents of Change in their communities with their $1.00 donation to World Vision International with every doll purchased!

Heart for Hearts Girls are a range of 36cm/14" dolls designed to encourage doll loving girls to build friendships and respect cultures other than their own. 

The dolls have been beautifully designed to have a contemporary feel with clothing based on traditional costume from their culture. 

The detail on each doll is incredible and it's no surprise that the dolls have won lots of awards since their launch in 2010.

Each doll arrives with a beautiful outfit, a mini story book giving details of their life in their own country, a comb and a girl sized bracelet.


The Big Idea

Hearts For Hearts Girls was created to make a difference—for girls who play with dolls, for girls who care about others, and for girls around the world who face difficult challenges in their lives.

To accomplish this, we produced beautiful, culturally diverse dolls that were reasonably priced. Their clothing was inspired by traditional fashions and patterns, but modified to appeal to a contemporary audience.  We took great care in the details, creating multiple sculpts for their heads and designing unique jewelry for each doll.

Because our brand mission was an emotionally-driven one—to "change the world, one heart at a time—we also recognized the importance of content. Our dolls needed to be characters, and they needed stories to help girls understand where they came from and what their lives were like. Only by adding this dimension would our young consumers find a way to connect and be engaged beyond the usual doll play.

So we created diaries for each doll, derived from multiple stories of real girls living in the same regions. We packaged a mini-book version in each doll box. And we included an inspirational bracelet for the girl to wear.

Finally, we needed a charitable partner—because we wanted to "make a difference" by donating a portion of each doll's purchase price to charity. We chose World Vision, a well-respected and global humanitarian organization that could use those donations to help children in need everywhere.


In late 2010, the doll line was launched in retail and online channels. The response was gratifying.

·         The brand made Dr. Toy's 2010 100 Best Products list, along with being recognized by Dr. Toy (aka, Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D., who has reviewed children's products for 25 years) as one of the 10 Best Socially Responsible Products for 2010.

·         We also won an 2010 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award

·         Our dolls won a DOTY (Doll of the Year Award) for both 2010 and 2011, an award sponsored by Doll Reader magazine and created to celebrate dolls with exceptional design and manufacture.

·         We were asked to participate in the 2010 UN International Year of Youth celebration at the United National headquarters in New York City.

·         Our website won a coveted W3 award, given to outstanding Websites, Web Marketing, Web Video, and Mobile Apps created by some of the best interactive agencies, designers, and creators worldwide.

Best of all, we captured the enthusiasm and support of moms and girls everywhere. Moms who were looking for a brand that went beyond the so-called  "pink aisle," that metaphorical (and literal) place in retail stores that caters to girl products focused on fashion, glamour, pets, and playing mommy.

These moms recognized and applauded our focus on real-world girls and their challenges and on the altruistic aspect that allowed their daughters to help girls in other cultures.


We believe that Hearts For Hearts Girls was ahead of its time—and that its mission is more relevant than ever today. Never has there been a greater need for girls to come together in friendship and respect, to learn about and understand cultural and ethnic diversity, and to have an alternate perspective offered to them—one that goes beyond pessimism, conflict, and suspicion to the heart of real girls in this world.

We're thrilled to have MPA Sales expand this brand into new markets and introduce it to new girls. They are enthusiastic partners who believe wholly in Hearts For Hearts Girls and are committed to its success.

It All Adds Up

We are continuing our relationship with World Vision. For every doll sold, we will donate $1 to their programs.

Some people have wondered if $1 can really do any good, but it all adds up. Hearts For Hearts Girls has donated $350,000 to World Vision so far. With this fresh launch of the brand, we hope to help even more.

Because that's our mission, to try and "change the world, one heart at a time."

 I was excited to be a part of the relaunching of these 4 beautiful Hearts For Hearts Girls during this holiday season! I love that girls can have dolls who look like them and can have dolls and learn about other cultures while being Agents of Change in their communities with their $1 donation to World Vision Internation by purchasing a doll. 

I like that these dolls were inspired by real girls and their stories as well as promoting and building friendships and respect for other cultures. I think it is the perfect gift for any occasion, especially during this holiday season when we are celebrating and giving to others. 

I chose Rahel (Ethiopia) because she looks like our 4 year old and I know this will make her very happy to open on Christmas morning. I know she will especially enjoy the friendship bracelet from Rahel. The dolls are beautifully packaged and well made with a message of love.

MARLskin Neck Beauty Cream Review

#marlskinneckcream #ad 

MARLskin Neck Beauty Cream

Neck Firming Cream - Moisturizer W/ Peptides Formulated For Neck, Chin, Decollete - Anti Aging Neck Lift Solution - For Sagging & Tightening - 60 ml - Made In The USA - 100% 

  • NO MORE NECK SAGGING: There are plenty of anti-aging facial creams out there, but few products are formulated specifically for the fragile neck area with its thin skin and lack of natural oils. We created our Neck Beauty Cream specifically to tighten, smooth, lift, and hydrate skin around the neck, chin and décolleté.
  • NURTURE WITH ADVANCED PEPTIDES: MARLskin sets the standard for moisturizers with peptides by scouring the world for the most advanced ingredients clinically tested to keep your neck looking firm and young.

  • NIX THE GREASE: No one wants to feel like they've just dipped their neck in a vat of grease when they put on their Neck Cream. We took great care with our neck firming solution to ensure you won't get that greasy feeling upon application.
  • QUALITY COUNTS: Made in the good old USA. With our widely sourced ingredients and cutting-edge manufacturing process, you can be assured that each bottle of MARLskin Neck Beauty Cream will firm, lift, and tighten this often overlooked area.

I have found that as I am nearing the age of 50, my skin care needs are changing and I have been overlooking my neck/décolleté/chest area, until I started using MARLskin neck beauty cream. I started using it daily, including it in my regular skin care regime. I like that it leaves my skin feeling moisturized and looking great without any residue/filmy feeling and is not at all greasy or shiny. I like that it is not heavily scented and fits in perfectly with the other skin care products I use. I like that this beauty cream is specifically for my neck and chest area which is just now starting to show some age. I like how this is working for taking care of this area and I will continue to use it on a daily basis.
