Oasap Review

I love to shop! Recently I was introduced to Oasap. Oasap is a global online store dedicated to high-street fashion by offering various kinds of women’s apparel, bags, shoes, jewelry, accessories and so much more! 

OASAP was founded in late 2011, however, has already grown to the leader of high fashion online store. They keep updating products at a high rate every day. Now they update more than 600 new products each week. 

I was given a chance to review some items and let me tell you~I had a hard time choosing! There are so many cute items!

Dress crafted in cotton, featuring double slim straps, bound waist, pearl embellishment to neckline, totem print to main, in ankle length cut. 

Look how cute my daughter looks in this~she just wore some flats to wear this dress anywhere! The fit is great and it looks so nice~You can dress this up for a night on the town too. I love how this dress flows when you walk too~so sexy!!


I also got the Black Elegant Stenciled Shoulder Bag.  As you can see this bag has been rocked by my granddaughter. This shoulder bag crafted in PU, featuring floral cut out detail, twin grab handles fastening to the sides with knot detailing, top zipped closure and a long detachable shoulder strap.It is very well made and will look good going out on the town or just for a day of shopping! I like that if it gets dirty you can just throw it in the washing machine! I think that this purse will last for a very long time.

You can see all this and more at Oasap~Be prepared to shop as they have so many cute items!

 They also have free shipping worldwide! 

You can find them on  Facebook and Twitter so you can keep up with everything!

Carmex-Summer Fun Bag And More Giveaway 8/15

Summer is in full swing~so chances are you are spending more time outdoors. Not only should you apply sunscreen but also make sure that your lips are protected. As there is nothing worse then dry~cracked lips. I have been using Carmex for as long as I can remember. I was so excited to see a package arrive from them!

Carmex has a new flavor~Pomegranate. This new scent is awesome~I love it! Not too sweet and it makes my lips feel so smooth just like the others!

Along with the Pomegranate flavor, they also sent me all their other flavors that I already use~lime twist~ cherry~original~vanilla and strawberry. Each Carmex lip balm has a SPF of 15 to protect your lips from the effects of the summer sun. So~you can wear these without having to worry about the bad rays!

The Beach Bag that was sent it also very nice! It is a thick canvas and has the rope handles. There is also a little bag inside that zippers to keep your keys,loose change ect..I am loving this bag~it will be great to take with us to the beach~as it is big enough to hold all your essentials and more! And~it is sturdy enough to handle it all.

Summer Treats From Unlever Review and Giveaway 8/19

Celebrate Summer with New Delicious Frozen Treats from MAGNUM, Popsicle, Breyers,Klondike and Good Humor. 

Now that Summer is here~the grandchildren are over more and they love to play outside. With all of that playing they get hungry and sure like it when Grandma has treats! This time I had a delicious cold surprise for them. As we were able to try some new goodies from Unlever. Of course~we know that when the grandchildren come over their parents are here too so they also had a chance to try them too!

MAGNUM, the world’s most luxurious ice cream bar, has introduced the Magnum Mini. The line of petite treats in Classic and Almond. What can I say~besides these were fantastic. Made with silky vanilla bean ice cream covered in a thick layer of Belgian milk chocolate. These little bars were big on flavor! Each bite was so good and I love the new size~as they don't melt as fast and are easier to eat.Magnum has also added two new varieties to its traditional-sized bars, which include Mint and Mochaccino.

Posicle's new~ Yosicles.These have the classic taste of Popsicle pops and the creamy deliciousness of yogurt. There are Torpedo!~ Layerz! and Duos! varieties. We tried the Torpedo! These creamy treats come in a fun torpedo shape~ combining three flavors into one delicious pop~ purple berry, green watermelon and vanilla. The little ones loved the flavor of these and I have to admit that they looked very good too. Little did they know that not only was the taste good~but these are also good for them!
Popsicle also partnered with SOUR PATCH KIDS to introduce fruity, candy-inspired pops that replicate the sour then sweet taste of the classic candy.

Breyers Blasts!~The line already has 18 varieties. But added six new flavors~ Golden Oreo Cookies and Cream, Oreo Birthday Blast!, Klondike Krunch, Banana Split and S’mores. We tried the Oreo Birthday Blast!~the cake-flavored treat made with Oreo cookie pieces and rainbow sprinkles! This was so good,the cookies pieces were very big and the rainbow sprinkles were a hit too.

Best known for its line of bars and sandwiches~Klondike is taking the popular Original Choco Taco treat to the next level with the introduction of Chocolate and Peanut Butter varieties.We tried the Chocolate variety. Made with Chocolate light ice cream in a sugar taco with dark chocolate flavored coating with crispy rice. My son picked this one as his favorite~he liked the chocolate and crispy rice mixture. Said that the taste was good but not too sweet.

Candy Lovers Rejoice! Good Humor now has~York Peppermint Patty Ice Cream Bars and Mounds Ice Cream Bars . We tried the York Peppermint Patty Ice Cream Bars. Made with Peppermint light ice cream dipped in a dark chocolate-flavored coating. This was my daughter's favorite~as she loves Peppermint. These were so refreshing on a hot day!

They have been around since 1929 making fine roasted gourmet nuts, chocolate covered nuts and dried fruits. They roast their gourmet nuts in small batches, the old fashioned way. They are fresh, flavorful, and many of their products ship the same day!

The company has a strong social and environmental commitment in its mission to produce the finest nut products in the world. They have been recognized with a prestigious Environmental MeritAward from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for their forest plantation in Central America.

I was given a chance to review some of their products. Let me tell you I sure had a hard time as everything looked so delicious. I choose something that I think that the whole family would enjoy.

The portions were very good and the size was unbelievable!! I have not ordered from them before but they have a customer now. The taste was so good~once I started eating them it was hard to resist eating the whole tray in one setting! I finally had to put them away so at least I could share some of them with the rest of the family. They were so happy to see that Mom shared her stash!!

You can see all this and more at Superior Nut as they have so many items to choose from~be prepared to get hungry as they have many goodies to choose from! Also on their site there are over 40 items that are offered with free shipping.
