Traveling Days : Modesty in Motion Review + Giveaway!

Hello Agents!

I am REALLY excited about getting to share this company with you.  This is something that is much needed in our Christian circles, and can be very helpful while traveling (amongst other things).


Modesty in Motion makes Culottes MADE-TO-ORDER!  Yes, that's right... made-to-order.  You can customize the length and everything.  And one of my favorite features is that they make some with double panels (one in the front, and one in the back), so it really looks like a skirt -- so modest, and yet sporty!  I received a longer made-to-order pair, and then a slightly shorter pair that I use for swimming, exercise, etc.  And don't think this won't look stylish - I have received so many compliments on these, as well as people wanting to know where they can get a pair of their own.



"I became a Christian in 1980. Soon after I realized that since God talks about clothes so much in the Bible it must be important to Him I adapted a standard of modesty in my own life and raised my children by those standards. While raising my girls and staying active with my family, I heard myself so often say, “Somebody needs to start a business selling culottes.”.When I took up coaching Volleyball full time I was really in need of a supplier.  My team needed something to wear and I refused to put them in giant basketball shorts or Pleated split skirt that make you look like a flying squirrel. So, I got to work.At the time it was just something I was doing for my team.  I tried several style and watched carefully during practice. Were they too restrictive, too weighty, unflattering to larger girls? They had to stay modest through the rigors of the game, jumping diving, rolling etc… As required in most sports there could not be any hardware (zipper or buttons) The fabric also had to be just right. Light weight but not sheer with enough stretch to allow for comfort and ease the strain on the seams.  It had to come in all colors and stay bright  with no special care instructions and NO IRONING.It was also important that they could be made affordably. After a few seasons I felt the design was perfect. So did many other people.  Ladies in my church began asking me to make them some and the school decided to make my culottes the standard in  K-college.I became the “Somebody”  starting the culottes business. Today Modesty in Motion is supplying culottes to Christian Schools and teams nation wide.  I am proud to help out several missionaries as well so I guess I am global.   My machines are industrial and the fabric comes to me hundreds of yards at a time.  In my spare time I am a wife and mother of four grown children and Grandmother to 5 little ones. I still coach volleyball with my husband from Fall to Spring in both public and private schools."

Yes, I wear them when I am out working with Belle in the yard!

These are perfect for just about anything.  I wear mine for all sorts of sports (kickball, volleyball, racquetball, biking, etc.), swimming, going to yard sales, working in the backyard, traveling (no ironing, pair with anything, etc), as well as just around the house.  They are so comfortable, that I could wear them every day.  Seriously!  I also like that you can dress it up or down... casual with a t-shirt and sneakers, or pair it with a dressier blouse and flats for a dressy look.

Sorry for the blurry pic.  Swimming!  It is dripping wet, but it doesn't cling!
It is well worth purchasing a pair (or two!) of these for yourself or a friend.  You can order a pair on the Modesty in Motion website, and you can also Like them on Facebook to stay up to date with their latest news (As well as seeing pictures of their beautiful model - Modest Molly!

Stylish Travel Apparel from Kosher Casual #Giveaway


Finding clothing that can travel well is a difficult task sometimes. Add in the fact that I require my clothing to be modest as well, and that gets even harder (finding modest clothing is hard period!). One of my favorite modest clothing companies is Kosher Casual; I have had several of their denim skirts over the years, and love each one of them. For summer travel though, sometimes denim is just a little too hot-especially in the type of heat we've been experiencing these past few weeks. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I discovered Kosher Casual also offers maxi skirts; I knew with the quality and style I'm used to from KC, and the added comfort and travel-ability of a maxi skirt, this would be a winner!

The Women's Flowing A-Line Maxi Skirt is available in over 15 colors, so you can find one to pair with any top/outfit! I chose the dark charcoal, and was so excited when it arrived-all the way from Israel!

The first thing you'll notice when you feel this skirt is the comfort. Most maxi skirts are made of a nice material, but this one is super soft and comfy! Literally so perfect for summer wear! Yet the nice thing is that it's not the super flimsy, see-through material a lot of maxis come in, which means you don't *need* to wear a slip underneath. 

This maxi skirt is great in that you can pair it with just about anything. Dress it up with a blouse and heels, or go casual with a t-shirt and a comfortable pair of flats. As you can see from the pictures below, you will be able to make so many outfits with just this one skirt as the base!




As I expected, this skirt pairs the quality, modesty, and style I have come to love from Kosher Casual clothing. It is actually in my suitcase right now (I'm typing this up as we're on the road to the Creation Museum) and it will definitely be a necessity on our future road trips!


One of my readers will receive their choice of Skirt from Kosher Casual!!

Does Your Dog Need Doggles?



Hey neighbors!

Planning a trip?  Taking Fido with you?  If you are, you might need to check out Doggles!  We recently received a pair to try out.  We chose a pair in lilac.  Yes you can choose different colors and patterns.



Douglas are perfect for dogs whose eyes are sensitive to light, but they are also for the adventurous dog who hangs their head out the window of your vehicle.  Or maybe your special dog likes to ride with you on a motorcycle, or just loves to be outside and needs protection from the UV rays.  All of the reasons mentioned above are good reasons to invest in a pair of Doggles.  Doggles are designed to be protective eyewear, not just a fashion accessory, although they do look great.



Just a few facts about Doggles:
Douglas are designed for canines.
They have a UV coating on the lens.
The lens are shatterproof, polycarbonate.
They are anti-fog.
Designed to fit the dogs face snugly, with foam padding for comfort.



Now, how did our dogs like Doggles?  Well, at first Glory wasn't too sure.  Remember this is the first time she tried them on.  They have adjustable rubber straps for comfort.  One goes over the head behind the ears and the other goes under the chin.  I think Glory looked cute!



Pansy on the other hand is our ham!  M posed with her in these pictures and I think the Doggles suit her best.  She does like to ride in the vehicle, so we will be using them for when she sticks her head out the window.



The girls decided Trixie needed to try the Doggles on too.  I don't think she was very excited about them.  She did not seem to like them, but then again she is a cat!


Doggles make a great idea for your dog for travel.  Be sure to visit their site to check out their selection.  You might want to take some time and look at the other products they have to offer.

One neighbor will receive a pair of Doggles for their dog.  Take a moment to enter and then go share this with others!  Thanks for stopping in!

Magicforest Trudi Puppets Too Cute!



Hey neighbors!

Here is an adorable puppet your children will just fall in love with!  It is perfect too for our month of travel as the Trudi Puppets from Magicforest are the perfect size for traveling fun.





I like to take all kinds of entertainment fun with me when we travel and the Trudi Puppets fit right in. Your child will be able to create stories with their puppet or just cuddle with their new friend.  Trudi Puppets are available as a Mama Hen and Baby, Mama Koala and Baby, Mama Owl and Baby or a Mama Penguin and Baby.  Our family fell in love with the Mama Penguin and Baby.





First a little information.  Magicforest imports products from Europe and then supplies them to specialty stores.  The Trudi Italian puppets are just one of the items they bring to us.  Magicforest has been importing quality toys and playthings for 11 years and are the exclusive distributor of 8 European brands.  You will find their wholesale site at: www.magicforest.com.  You will be able to find the closest retailer that carries the Trudi puppets on their website.





“We are proud to import Trudi to American families,” says Robert Leuchtner, President of Magicforest, “and parents should know that these puppets, like all Trudi products, come with a lifetime warranty.”




Now, just a little about Trudi.  I am going to list a few facts here that I think you will find just as amazing as I did.  I am really impressed by some of their policies.

1. Trudi is an Italian plush company with a long tradition of making kids smile.  For plush toys, Trudi is number one in Italy.  Italian children don’t ask for a ‘stuffed animal’, they ask for a ‘Trudi’.

2. Trudi was founded in 1954 by Mrs. Trudi Muller Patriarca who created the first soft toys for fun when she was just a teenager.

3. Trudi products are hand-made, double-stitched and hand combed in the Far East in a Trudi-run factory employing local artisans under fair and safe working conditions.

4. All Trudi Plush is x-rayed to be sure no metal parts – such as the tip of a needle – are left behind once produced. Safety first!

Our Trudi Penguin with her baby is just so cute!  She is extremely soft, as is the baby.  They both make you want to cuddle them.  The mother penguin has a small pocket on her tummy where her little penguin resides when she is not being played with.



This would make a wonderful gift idea.  Imagine the fun playing peek-a-boo with babies and toddlers.  Then as they get older they can actually put on a small puppet show.




Our Penguin came with us this trip.  She is fun at restaurants.  You can make other children laugh too when you take her out with you.  We also were able to hang a blanket over a small table and play puppets!

One neighbor will receive one set of Trudi puppets from Magicforest.  You may choose from the Penguin (good choice), Hen, Koala or Owl.  They will of course come with their baby.  Enter now and then go share this giveaway with others.

Puppy Update!



Hey neighbors!

I just had to share!  These little ones are 5 weeks old now and are getting cuter by the day.  My daughter already wants to keep one!


A few of the Blue Merles have blue eyes and are simply gorgeous!  They are so playful now.  They sit and bark at you if you don't pay attention to them.  They also play with each other now, climbing, chewing and rolling each other over.



Enjoy the pictures and thank you for stopping in.




See you soon!

Travel In Comfort With The TravelHalo! #Giveaway #TravelingDays


This has to be one of the neatest products I have ever seen. Our family travels a lot, and one of the biggest requirements is for each one to have a pillow for sleeping in the car. Another biggie for a few of us is an eye mask, so when we're driving during the day and want to rest, we can. I'm sure many of you can relate, so how would you like a single product that solves both of these issues?! 



I received a TravelHalo for review, and just reading about it I knew it would be handy, but after trying it out-it's a winner! Basically a TravelHalo is a headband that has 2 "pillows" towards the back to support your head whether you're driving, flying, etc. The pillows are just the right size to give the support and comfort you need, without being bulky or annoying. You can use it just like this for a comfortable ride, and to me, it's so much better than trying to stuff a pillow between your head and the car window. But the benefits of TravelHalo don't end there! (Please note, yes, I am sitting in the driver's seat for these pictures-no, the car was not running!)




On the front of your TravelHalo "headband" you will notice a flap of material that is flipped up. Simply flip it down, and you have a built-in eye mask! It is amazing, and so comfortable! Oh, and if you wear eyeglasses, you can opt to leave them on or take them off-the TravelHalo will be comfortable either way.




The TravelHalo is made from a cotton/spandex sports cloth that is super comfy. No itching or scratching, no getting frustrated with a material that just feels funny. This is great! 


One of my readers will receive a TravleHalo!!!

XLEAR Spry Review



Hey Neighbors,

How many of you have heard of XLEAR and Spry?  I received a really neat package of samples from them for review in their care kit.  Xylitol is a natural occurring sweetener, that they are using in their health products.



Now, I received some gum and mints, both of which quickly were claimed and disappeared.  I did manage to grab the Spry Gems (mints) for myself.  They are residing in my purse.  I also was able to at least grab a piece of the Spry gum before it was claimed.  One piece was all I was able to try.  I like both products.  The other Spry Gems were berry flavored.  Needless to say my family liked them all.




We have also used the Spry Toothpaste and Oral Rinse.  I personally enjoy the fresh flavor and I like knowing that my children are using a toothpaste and oral rinse with added benefits.





Some Spry Toothpaste Facts:

  • The use of Spry Toothpaste can significantly improve oral health, when combined with proper oral hygiene and regular dental care.
  • Spry Toothpaste consists of 1/3 xylitol, which provides 20-25% of the recommended dosage per day.
  • Xylitol also increases mineral absorption into the enamel of the teeth, resulting in greater protection with a clean, fresh feeling that really lasts. 
We also received two different XLEAR Nasal Sprays with xylitol.  I have not tried this yet.  I personally do not use nasal sprays, but my husband does occasionally, so I will save these for him.

XLEAR Nasal Spray:

  • Xlear is a soothing nasal spray that helps to alleviate congestion due to allergies, cold, flu, and sinusitis. It does this by being much more hyperosmotic
    than a traditional saline nasal spray and also by incorporating xylitol, a natural product that has been shown to decrease bacterial adherence in the nose.

  • When used twice a day, Xlear nasal spray not only hydrates the sinuses and nasal passages but it also helps to wash away airborne contaminants and pollutants that lead to many common upper respiratory problems.
  • Unlike many prescription or medicated sprays with unwanted side effects, daily usage of Xlear Nasal Spray is non-addictive and will not damage tissues. 
Be sure to follow XLEAR on their social media pages.
