CLEANREST REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

CLOSED

Hi Again Neighbors,


This time I have a really nice review from Clean Rest. I received a Mattress encasement, Boxspring encasement and 2 of their pillows. Boy, was I excited. I have allergies, so these will be great. They really helpcut down on dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and mold spores. I am already enjoying using mine! And I have to confess, I really like the pillows. I love my pillows to be soft and these definitely qualify, on top of cutting down on things I am allergic to.


Mattress and Boxspring Encasement:
"CleanRest® mattress covers and pillow covers are the first and most important control for those who have dust mite, pet dander, pollen, and mold spore allergies. These doctor recommended mattress covers are made with MicronOne® allergy blocking fabric technology which uses 100% micro denier polyester fabric that is so tightly woven that it has a maximum pore size of 1 micron. This zippered encasement provides the user with the healthiest sleep possible. Wake up free of allergy and asthma symptoms today with CleanRest®.
  • Made with MicronOne® allergy blocking technology
  • Doctor recommended
  • Maximum pore size of 1 micron
  • Blocks all dust mites and their waste, pet dander, pollen, mold spore, and even bed bugs
  • Water Resistant
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Machine washable
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Fully-encased, provides complete coverage
  • Fits extra deep and pillow top mattresses

Dust mites are relentless in their search for food and breeding grounds. As a result, your box spring becomes a logical destination for the colonies of mites that develop over time in your mattress, pillow and duvet. Encase your box spring with CleanRest® and stop the dual migration route of the micro-toxins, from your bedroom floor to your mattress and from your mattress to your box spring."

Pillows:

"New! CleanRest® Ultra Allergy Blocking Pillows feature a softer outer cover, fuller loft and better shape retention, while completely blocking micro-toxins and dust mite infestation. Our new, ultra soft fabric still offers the highest level of allergen protection and best night's sleep possible."

Here's the Clean Rest Story:
"The idea for CleanRest® started when my oldest child began suffering from nighttime breathing and sleeping difficulties. Numerous doctors agreed that his problems were due to the harmful micro-toxins, allergens and dust mites that live inside everyone's mattress and pillows. I decided to use my textile-science background to help my son.
My family has three generations of experience designing and manufacturing some of the world's finest high-performance fabrics. Armed with this knowledge, I created MicronOne™ fabric technology, the first fabric that's able to block even the tiniest micro-toxins, creating a breathable barrier between you and them.
It’s a great feeling to know I have helped my children, and in the process improved my whole family's well-being. Now I have the opportunity to help do the same for you and your family. I invite you to try our CleanRest® products and start experiencing a new level of healthy sleep and peace of mind."

Seventh Generation Review and Giveaway!

CLOSED
Hey Neighbors,

I contacted Seventh Generation and they offered to send me their Living Home Starter Kit. Which includes:
LIVING HOME STARTER KIT
Glass Cleaner - Grapefruit
All-Purpose Cleaner - Green Mandarin
Toilet Bowl Cleaner - Emerald
Shower Cleaner - Green Mandarin
Tub & Tile Cleaner
Kitchen Cleaner
(2) Natural Paper Towels - 120 Count
Reusable Tote
All these great new Green cleaning products to try. I have to tell you not only do they work great, they smell great too. My son has the chore of cleaning the bathroom this month and even he (16 years old) was impressed. He said the Shower cleaner really removed some stains we had in there. We used the glass cleaner on the bathroom mirror and also on some windows. In the kitchen we used the all-purpose cleaner and the kitchen cleaner. I have to admit I really like their products.

Several people in my family have allergies and we sometimes react to different cleaners. Not with these so far. I love that I am not spreading more chemicals around my house.

About the Company:
"Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world's most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. For 20 years, the closely held Burlington, Vermont-based company has been at the forefront of a cultural change in consumer behavior and business ethics.
One of the country's first self-declared "socially responsible" companies, Seventh Generation is a business that operates according to a new and different set of principles and values that in many ways are a marked departure from those long considered "traditional." Its business practice is focused on offering people avenues to express their idealism, passion, and commitment to causes larger than themselves at every point along its supply chain—from suppliers and partners to shareholders, customers and its own staff.
The company derives its name from the Great Law of the Iroquois that states, "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." Every time you use a Seventh Generation product you are making a difference by saving natural resources, reducing pollution, keeping toxic chemicals out of the environment and making the world a safer place for this and the next seven generations.

Educating This and Future Generations

Seventh Generation is committed to helping consumers make informed choices.
Seventh Generation provides information in several formats: on packaging, on this Web site, in 7Gen News (look in the upper right corner on any Seventh Generation web page to sign up) and in booklets and presentations by Chief Inspired Protagonist Jeffrey Hollender, company co-founder and Executive Chairperson as well as other members of our community.

A complete line of non-toxic household products

Seventh Generation brand-name products include: non-chlorine bleached, 100% recycled paper towels, bathroom and facial tissues, and napkins; non-toxic, phosphate-free cleaning, dish and laundry products; plastic trash bags made from recycled plastic; chlorine-fre
e baby diapers, training pants, and baby wipes; and chlorine-free feminine care products, including organic cotton tampons."
This is definitely a company worth sharing At the Fence. Go by their
website Seventh Generation and check out all the products they have.
Seventh Generation is going to give the winner of this giveaway the
same kit as I received. So here we go!

Happy Green Bee Petal Dress Review and Giveaway!

CLOSED
Hey Neighbors,

I recently received from Happy Green Bee their Petal Dress in Pumpkin and Radish. Happy Green Bee carries Organic clothing. On their site they have an excellent article on why you should buy Organic. You can read that here. They carry clothing, socks and gifts.

I had a friend's daughter try this dress on for me for pictures. Aren't they adorable? They also carry an A-line dress. The dress is very soft and comfortable feeling. The colors are bright and cheerful. They have socks that match the dress, which would make a really cute outfit. The dresses are available in small-extra large. Here is their description of this dress:
"Petal Dress
Expert twirlers agree that our petal-skirted dress is a dizzy delight! Roomy sleeves, scoop collar and soft rolled edges for fuss-free comfort in bold laugh-out-loud colors. Alone, or paired with leggings, our flirty hemline offers maximum flare for spinning, dancing and the perfect curtsy."

" happygreenbee has a simple philosophy: clothing that is comfortable, colorful, playful and ecologically responsible. "We created Happy Green Bee so that a child can be a child, first and foremost," Quimby explains. "By using organic cotton, a comfortable and practical fabric, and simple bee-striped patterns, children feel as comfortable as they look while their parents take a small step in making a big difference in the environment their children live in."

You can fan Happy Green Bee on Facebook to keep up with what is coming up.

I think Happy Green Bee is worth sharing At the Fence. Not only that, but they are going to giveaway a Petal Dress exactly like the one I received to the winner of this giveaway.

My Favorite Pal Father Son Tie Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Hi Neighbors,

My Favorite Pal sent me 2 of the nicest ties to review. They are matching Father Son ties. The ones I received are the black with silver stripe. These are very well made, quality ties. My husband and son love them. They both wore them to church last night so I took pictures. Don't they look great! These would make a great gift. I know Father's Day is not until June, but if you could hide them long enough...

The youth tie I received is a zipper tie. Both my son and husband loved that. My husband even said he wished his was a zipper tie. Your next question might be:

"What is a zipper tie?


A zipper tie is a tie that is pre-tied with a zipper built into the knot. You simply unzip the tie to remove it and zip it up to wear it. When a zipper tie is on it looks like a normal tie."
They are really handy because you don't have to tie them every time you use them, it's already done. And with 3 males in my family that is handy! You can even purchase the adult tie with the zipper.
You also might be wondering:

"What are their ties made of?


My Favorite Pal ties are made from Microfiber. Microfiber allows the ties to look sharp like silk with the durability of Polyester."
"My Favorite Pal ties are handcrafted with top quality "kid-tough" microfiber to last the rough and tumble shenanigans of boys and still look sharp."
Presently you can only purchase these ties online. So go check out their website. My Favorite Pal.
My Favorite Pal is a company to share At the Fence! And they are offering a Father - Son matching set to the winner of this giveaway. Isn't that great!

CLOSED
Mandatory Entry: Visit My Favorite Pal's website and come back and let me know in a comment which ones you would choose. You do not have to be a blogger to enter, but you must leave a valid email where I can contact you should you win. This giveaway will end 4/2 at 11:59 pm CST. I will use Random.org to choose the winner whom I will notify by email. The winner will have 48 hours to respond with shipping information.

200 Neighbors!! Check out this Giveaway!

CLOSED
Hey Neighbors!

Since I reached 200 Neighbors (Followers) recently I wanted to do something special. So I have 2 items from Yankee Candle that I will be giving away to one of my great neighbors. First in this set is a Butterfly Plate. It is really beautiful. The second piece is a Crackle Butterfly Cylinder Tealight Holder. Both of these pieces are gorgeous and with spring in the air they would be a great decoration or a gift if you decide to give it to someone else. I apologize for not getting this up yesterday, but our internet was really acting up. I tried posting twice and I kept losing the connection. I think I spent more time trying to re-connect than anything else I accomplished.

NOVICA $75 GC Giveaway



CLOSED
Hey Neighbors,

I contacted Novica and they are allowing me to give away a $75 GC to Novica.com. You would not believe this site! It was tempting to just do a review, but I decided to pass this on to one of my Neighbors (Followers). Check out the gifts for mom. They have clothing, handbags, shawls etc. These items are made by artists and artisans from all over the world. They carry handmade jewelry, including necklaces, bracelets, pendants, brooches etc.

Their Unique Gifts include dinnerware, sculpture, vases and home decor. One of my favorites is the Glass Pitcher "Cobalt Charm" for $28.99. Here is their description:
"
Mesmerizing with its cobalt translucency, this pitcher offers the allure of Mexico's blown glass artistry. Javier and Efrén join forces in the creation of this singular piece, which is crafted with traditional blown glass techniques. The pitcher's design is elegant, voluminous and makes pouring easy.

Because each item is individually handmade, the dimensions on this item may vary by up to +/- 0.5 inches (1.25 cm)."

Does your husband enjoy relaxing in a Hammock as much as mine does? Especially when we go camping. The children really enjoy it too! Novica has many hammocks to choose from. From hanging chairs to totally stretched out and relaxing!
Novica says: "We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.

Lip CLear Lysine+ Review and $2 Coupon


Neighbors,
I was offered the chance to review the Lip Clear Lysine+. It couldn't have come at a better time. My nine year old gets cold sores when she is sick, and wouldn't you know, she has been sick recently. The Lip Clear Lysine+ really helped. She is even asking to apply it through out the day. Her cold sore is already drying out and clearing up. And one of the best things is it is all natural. Another product to share At the Fence.

"Cold sores are painful, unsightly blisters that form on the lips or just outside the mouth as a result of the herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1). While many people may carry this virus (it lies dormant in some), upwards of 60 million people get cold sores annually as a result. Cold sores can last for up to two weeks, in some cases, and are very contagious. The virus can be spread through kissing, touching, sharing cups and utensils, towels, etc. Cold sores can be triggered by sunlight, arginine rich foods, fever, illness, stress, food allergies and hormonal changes. In addition to being embarrassing for sufferers, cold sores are often very painful, causing itching, burning and other discomfort.
While there is no cure for HSV1 and the resulting cold sores, the best solution is to heal them as quickly as possible. LIP CLEAR Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment utilizes the active zinc oxide, as well as lysine – an essential amino acid – and 14 other natural ingredients to help treat cold sores faster; according to a Southern California University of Health Sciences study. It is clinically shown to cut healing time in half, median time to complete cold sore healing was four days, and a remarkable 40% of participants had full cure by end of third day. LIP CLEAR’s unique combination of natural ingredients provides immediate relief from symptomatic burning, itching and tingling upon application. LIP CLEAR Lysine+ is all-natural, has a non-chemical flavor, goes on clear, can be worn under lipstick and doesn’t burn on application. It provides immediate soothing relief of burning and itching.
Suggested retail price is $6.99 for a 7-gram tube; available at drug stores, supermarkets and health food stores nationwide, and online at www.LipClear.com. The makers of Lip Clear Lysine+ are also offering a limited edition of $2 coupons for my neighbors. Click here to get yours!"

You can also check their website for articles and other information on cold sores, their causes and methods to help avoid them.
Stay up to date on the latest from LipClear by fanning them on Facebook.

Bright Feet Review and Giveaway


CLOSED

Hey Neighbors,

I was given the chance to review Bright Feet. Slippers with lights that illuminate where you are going! This is great for my family. As you know we travel full-time, so we are often in a travel trailer or hotel room. These are really handy when you don't want to bother anyone else who is sleeping, but you also don't want to bang your toes or shins on furniture or suitcases sitting in the room. My daughters love these. They go in a dark room just to play with them. I received the navy blue Bright Feet. These would also be great to slip into a sleeping baby's room to check on them without disturbing their sleep.


"BrightFeet™ Slippers are nightlights fo

r your feet. Wherever you go, the lights go with you™. Checking on kids, midnight snacks, trips to the bathroom, whatever the task, BrightFeet™ Slippers are the right li

ght for you at night™.

No need to wake up others by turning on lights in a dark room. Convenient and easy to use, BrightFeet™ Slippers provide up to 25' of light by simply stepping into the slippers. Compared to traditional nightlights that only illuminate a certain area, BrightFeet™ Slippers light the path directly in front of you at all times. BrightFeet™ Slippers is The Perfect Gift for any occasion. "


"The idea for Brightfeet™ Lighted Slippers came from
our founder and experienced inventor, Doug Vick, who after getting up in the middle of the night, bumped into the bedpost while making his way back to the bed. The next day, realizing there were probably millions of people who have done the same thing, he began to work on a product that would allow a person to get out of bed at night and easily and conveniently navigate “hands free” around a darkened house. A few days later the idea for Brightfeet™ was conceived.
Having patented several problem solving products that have been sold to millions of consumers in the U.S. and abroad, Brightfeet™ Lighted Slippers are not only one of his most original inventions, but perhaps his brightest idea yet!
Although the concept for Brightfeet Slippers originated with just one person, the success of Brightfeet has taken support from friends, family, employees, vendors, partners, and most importantly, the good Lord, who has blessed us in so many ways. We are thankful to be where we are today and look forward to the days ahead"

Ladies I am pleased to share Bright Feet At the Fence! These would make a great gift for anyone, but especially for people who get up a lot at night.

Bright Feet is offering a pair of slippers for a giveaway At the Fence.

Soft Lips and more Soft Lips Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Oh Neighbors!

Here's a really great review and giveaway! Soft Lips sent me both their Limited Winter Collection and their New Pure Collection. The Winter Collection comes in Sugar Plum Berry and Cherry, Cherry and Sugar Cookie, and Sugar and Spice and Vanilla. I've often used their Cherry, but the Sugar Cookie and the Sugar and Spice are really nice. Don't get me wrong, all of them are nice, but these are my favorites in the winter collection. For some reason I have needed them more this winter than ever before. Also, with allergies in the family, some of us have a tendency to mouth breathe a lot so our lips are staying dry longer and Soft Lips really helps.


"The seasonal flavors help protect lips from the sun with SPF 20 and have the same great moisturizing properties as Softlips’ other popular flavors. Each winter
flavor comes paired with a complimentary Softlips® favorite lip balm."

The Pure Collection (Organic Lip Conditioners)has expanded it's line. I received Pure Papaya, Pure Pomegranate, Pure Peppermint, Pure Acai Berry and Pure Chai Tea. I didn't even get to smell the Pure Chai Tea when it came in, one of my older daughters grabbed it! These are 100% natural and 95% Organic. This is another one where I like Peppermint, but after trying the others I think Acai Berry is my favorite. The Pure Collection is USDA Organic.


"In addition to the original line, there’s Softlips® PURE, the line of premium organic lip conditioners, available in new Peppermint, Acai Berry , Papaya and Chai Tea. The newest Softlips® PURE flavors,
which are 100%-natural and USDA-certified organic, are formulated with the same quality moisturizing ingredients as the original organic flavor –Pomegranate– to condition the lips, helping to keep them soft and healthy naturally. Softlips PURE lip conditioners in pomegranate is available in mass retail, supermarket and drug stores nationwide for the suggested retail price of $2.99. Look for the newest flavors – Peppermint, Acai Berry , Papaya and Chai Tea – on display in the natural beauty section of select Target and Rite-Aid stores."

You can keep updated on Soft Lips by fanning them on Facebook. By doing this you will find news, giveaways and tips. Soft Lips is a product I want to share At the Fence.

It doesn't get much better than this. The winner of this giveaway gets to choose either the Soft Lips Winter Collection or the New Flavors of the Soft Lips Pure Collection.

It has a mirrored blue surface on the front and a regular mirrored surface on the back. I really like mine and these would make a cute friendship gift.

Supermarket Smarty Review and Giveaway






Hey Neighbors,

Here is the first in a group of giveaways that I will be listing this week. Supermarket Smarty is a great help for grocery shopping. I was given a Supermarket Smarty to do a review and I will also be holding a giveaway for one.

Let me tell you, with a family of eight, this is wonderful. We travel full-time and are constantly having to run back out for something we forgot to purchase. Now, with this list placed on the refrigerator or above the stove, whenever we find an item we have run out of, someone can mark it down on the list and when we run out, we just take the list with us.

Here is some information on how the Supermarket Smarty was started:
"My name is Patricia and I created Supermarket Smarty. Like many moms, I do most of the grocery shopping for my family, so it’s up to me to make sure we eat healthy while staying within our budget. A couple of years ago I was having some health issues and I consulted many books and websites to adjust my diet for healthy eating. During this time, I found that I needed an easy way to remember all the important foods to include in my diet as well as the nutrition advice I was hearing on television. There is a lot of information out there, so I started a little nutrition “crib sheet” to refer to from week to week that eventually became my shopping list. The list evolved into a dry erase format so it’s reusable. I added a meal planner, pocket for coupons and a magnifying lens to help people read fine print on nutrition labels. The list has become an indispensable tool for me as it not only organizes my grocery shopping but keeps my family on track for healthy eating. I hope you find Supermarket Smarty as useful as I do and it helps you live a more balanced and healthful life!"

Supermarket Smarty comes with a meal planner page so you can write out your meals, and then prepare your grocery list by looking at your planner. This is nice, but the best part is the actual list. It has 5 pages that list most grocery needs broken down into categories, like:Dairy, Deli, Fruits and Veggies, Whole Grains, etc. Included in the front page is a magnifying glass to read labels on the products. (Especially good for me, as I am beginning to have trouble reading fine print!) There is a notes section for other items you might need, along with a pocket to carry coupons. This is the only part of the Supermarket Smarty I would complain about and it really isn't a major complaint. This pocket would never hold all the coupons my daughter uses! The last page is Smarty Tips which lists some nutritional information and symbols which are beside the foods listed, such as Omega-3, Lean Protein, Potassium, Healthy Fat, etc. There is a magnetic clip to hold your Supermarket Smarty on your refrigerator or in some other convenient place. This is the best part, it is dry erase! A re-usable grocery list! And it comes with a retractable dry erase marker. You can take a mini tour of the use of the Supermarket Smarty. I really wanted to share this product At the Fence.

MANDATORY ENTRY:Visit Supermarket Smarty and come back and leave a comment about some feature you learned about on their website, or how this product could help you. Please complete the mandatory entry before entering any other way. I will be forced to remove comments if the rules are not followed. This giveaway will end at 11:59 pm CST 3/14. I will choose a winner using Random.org. The winner will have 48 hours after being notified by email to respond or another winner will be chosen. You do not have to be a blogger, but you MUST leave a valid email where I can contact you, should you win.
