Litehouse Salad Dressing & A Giveaway #SeeTheLight

This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Litehouse Foods. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

When I think salad I think of those shelf stable dressings and don't really look twice at the refrigerated ones. It's just always been habit for me to use a room temperature dressing on my salads. But did you ever stop to think that your salad is nice and crisp and cold and you added warm dressing to it? Me either! Then I came across Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese and Homestyle Ranch in the refrigerated salad section and my world has been changed.

My favorite lunch is egg salad and I discovered a way to make it with a twist! Instead of using mayo I grabbed the Litehouse Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing. What a difference! The egg salad has a different taste with just a simple ingredient. 

Adding the Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese gives my egg salad some extra creaminess. The best part is no one else like it so I have more for myself. 

I pair my egg salad sandwich with a nice salad for a balanced meal. 

This summer serve up some fresh veggies with a variety of Litehouse dressings and let your kids dip and taste new flavors. You might be surprised at which ones quickly become their favorites. 

ONE reader will receive 2 coupons for free Litehouse dressing. Ends 6/7/16

Keeping The Odors At Bay With Tommee Tippee Simplee Diaper Pail

Disclosure: As a Tommee Mommee I am provided samples in order to bring you this review. All opinions are my own.

Let's talk stinky diapers for a moment shall we? Plain and simple, they are gross and often stink up the whole house. The older your baby gets the stinkier am I right? 

Finding a diaper pail that fits your needs is a daunting task now that there are many different brands out there. I like to look for ones that are simple to use and don't require me sticking my face in the pail. 

The Tommee Tippee Simplee Diaper Pail is just that! It's the perfect size for my daughters room or heck even in the kitchen. It can fit pretty much anywhere.

It's super simple to use all you need to do is push the diaper through the smart lid and close! 

Features include:

  • Multi-layer film and smart seal lid blocks odors
  • Film contains antibacterial ingredient that kills 99% of germs
  • Each refill cartridge can dispose of up to 180 diapers*
  • Comes with one pre-loaded refill cartridge
  • Bin holds up to 18 diapers at one time*
  • (*based on size 1 diapers)
I absolutely love that the refill cartridges are recyclable but my kids like to play with them outside so it's a win win all around. 

The Simlpee Diaper Pail comes in 5 colors so there is one to fit your style. 
The refill cartridges come in either a 2 pack or a 4 pack.

After your little one is done with diapers no need to get rid of the Simplee Diaper Pail, you can use it for many other things such as storing stuffed animals, a regular garbage can, compost bin and so much more. My husband is already talking about taking it for use in our garden for compost. 

You can find these amazing Tommee Tippee products at Babies R Us for $39.99 
This includes the Simplee Diaper Pail and 6 refills. 
The 2 pack of refill cartridges is $9.99
