In the last year or so I have seen a real shift with our society. People are getting more and more concerned about the chemicals they put in their body, as well as surround themselves with at their home and workplace. The terms “natural” and “organic” are popping up more and more, and unlike in years past, these products are coming at a price that everyone can afford.

H2O at Home is a brand new Direct Sales company bringing this same philosophy to homes across the world with Advisors in the USA and abroad in Belgium and France.  Through in home “Get Togethers” you can learn how to keep yourself, your home, and your workplace spotlessly clean, without having to use hash chemicals.

H2O at Home is a company that is constantly moving forward. From its inception in France over 13 years ago,we have always and continue to think outside the box. We create products that make life easier while we hold true to our environmentally friendly and chemical-free values. In 2009 we brought this company to the U.S., a country of entrepreneurs. Our vision is to introduce: our unique products, our clear Direct Sales vision and the idea that you can preserve the environment without making compromises to households across America. Join us and together we can create a brighter future.

I got the chance to personally test a few of the H2O at Home products, and I must admit I was pleasantly surprised.  I have used “green” products before and been impressed with how much they can really do with just the use of water, but the H2O at Home line really blew me away.

My favorite product is a toss up between the laundry soap and the clay powder.  The Natural Laundry Soap has just enough of a scent to make your clothes smell fresh, but it is so concentrated I literally only needed half of their liquid versus the Tide cup that I normally use.  At $21 per bottle for 100 loads, the H2O at Home Laundry Soap is also more economical than my beloved Tide.

The Clay Powder stuff was awesome though – you lightly dampen one of their Heavy Duty Chiffonettes (towel-like-thingies) and kinda work it into a lather and go to town.  The cleaning power is incredible – I headed outside to my patio furniture to check just how “heavy duty” it could handle… the difference was clear… pun intended.

The H2O at Home line of products is as extensive as it is impressive – with everything from home fragrance to skin care to cleaning products to bath robes.  You can check out everything H2O at Home has to offer on their website – http://us.h2o-at-home.com/

Personalize Your Home with Rendi Review & #Giveaway

Thanks for stopping by the 2012 Diva Holiday Gift Guide from Party Plan Divas! Every day in November I will be highlighting some of the hottest products from the Direct Sales Industry – along with tons of great giveaways – from Independent Consultants across the USA. Help support small businesses this Holiday Season by shopping from Party Plan Consultants and make a difference in someone’s life!

Before the Diva Holiday Gift Guide, I had not heard of Rendi – a Party Plan Company offering beautiful, customizable home decor items. Kim Davidson, Rendi Independent Stylist, was so super patient while I tried to decide which item I wanted to review.  I could literally see every single thing from the catalog in my home.

Rendi’s products give you a new and creative way to CARE for family and friends. Rendi means “you make” in Italian. YOU MAKE your life reflect the values you hold most precious. Doesn’t that really mean our relationships? YOU MAKE a gift – a one-of-a-kind, personal gift that you’ve given from both your hand and your heart. YOU MAKE people happy. You step out of life’s busyness and take time to tell someone just how much they mean to you. You’ll be amazed how your creation impacts the people in your life.

All of Rendi’s products are made in the USA from recycled wood & water based paints.   There are currently less than 300 Independent “Stylists” making this truly a ground floor opportunity.  Each product comes in multiple color choices and can be personalized with the customers names, quotes, etc and ship within 48 hours – it took me longer to DECIDE what I wanted than to actually receive it.  

I finally decided on the Urban Rustic Square Clip Frame since I had just returned from a blog event and had the perfect picture of “The Girls” to go in it.  The 4×6″ photo was included and I could even edit the photo to a black and white or sepia filter to better match the frame.  Ordering was easy – I simply picked the product, uploaded a picture, and then typed in the text.  I love how I got to see a finished product before I ordered to make sure it was exactly what I wanted.

I was so pleased with how my Urban Rustic Square Clip Frame turned out!  I have hung it in my office where I can see it every single day and remember the fun time I had with my long distance blogging buddies I miss so much.

One product I will for sure be ordering this season is the Picture This! which prints your photos, childrens artwork, etc directly onto the wood.  Both Little Divas have drawn me some priceless pieces of art that I can make last forever – and share with the rest of the family – with the help of Rendi.

Rendi’s tagline of “Say More With Your De’cor” is perfect – and I know I will be filling my home with many more from Rendi’s collection.  You can check out everything Rendi has to offer on Kim’s website – https://kim.rendistyle.com/Home.  You can even receive $5 off your order between now and December 5th directly through Kim Davidson, Rendi Independent Stylist, whose love for her new business can be felt even through her emails.  “Rendi was the perfect choice for me.  I was looking for a great ground floor opportunity with a product and company that I could be passionate about.  I found both with Rendi!!”

Sounds like the perfect match.

Design Your Own Style – JuJu Belle Review & #Giveaway

Thanks for stopping by the 2012 Diva Holiday Gift Guide from Party Plan Divas!

JuJu Belle is one of the companies I have loved since the moment I laid eyes on their products. Last year when I was sent a necklace to review, I fell in love with the idea of interchangeable, affordable jewelry that both myself and both of my girls would wear!  My Teen daughter still wears the necklace we received last year and her friends think its “just so cool.”

JuJu Belle is a direct selling, party plan company, specializing in a unique interchangeable jewelry system.  The beauty of our jewelry is the ability for every customer to design and create pieces to reflect their own unique personality.  Our “a la carte” product line consists of over 1,000 individual items with new items added monthly.

Independent Consultant Krystine Currier sent me one of the pendants from the “Wise Words” Collection from JuJu Belle.  My favorite part of the necklace is though it looks like it would be heavy, its incredibly light weight.  Nothing drives me more crazy than feeling the tug of my jewelry all day long.  And with the little interchangeable charms, I can change the look of the necklace with just a few clips.  With JuJu Belle you can change the look of any necklace since all of the charms have a spring clasp that lets you add or remove them easily from the chain.  You can mix and match and add as many or as few charms as you want.

JuJu Belle’s line of pendants is incredible – I literally picked over 100 different charms that I could see myself wearing.  From the “Keep Calm” series to wedding party pendants, I love my Chihuahua, and several must have owls.  The girls picked a dozen each too.  They have charms for all ages, styles, and wardrobes.  I also love the new Vintage Treasures collection where you can “Capture Your Memories” and make your own custom pendant just for you.

You can check out the entire line of JuJu Belle products as well as their great Hostess Rewards Program and Business Opportunity on Krystine’s website – http://www.jujubelle.com/krystinec

The Fountain Of Youth – Nerium Review & #Giveaway

Living in Florida, I spend 80% of my life in the sun. Even now as I type this – less than 2 weeks before Thanksgiving – I have spent the last two hours sitting on my back porch “soaking up some sunshine” while I had lunch and chatted with a girlfriend of mine.  This has been a way of life for as long as I can remember. My Mom and I spent every day in the pool during the summer months.  No sunscreen.  No hats.  No worries.

The older I get the more I think about my skin.  I realize I have done quite a number on it with all of this sun exposure and I have spent hundreds of dollars trying to stop or even reverse the signs of aging.  When my friend and colleague Ivette Muller told me she had found an amazing new skin care product that would do just that – I had to try it.

During advanced research on the uses of the Nerium oleander plant, an accidental discovery was made: the unique properties of Nerium oleander provided remarkable age-defying results when applied to the skin. This finding led to the creation of the NeriumAD skincare line. Nerium scientists developed a breakthrough process, NBio-PL2, to extract from the Nerium oleander plant in a way that preserves its unique and beneficial properties. This patent-pending extraction process yields the NAE-8 extract used to formulate this first-of-its-kind age-defying product line.

That is Science Speak for “this stuff is amazing.”  The longer I use Nerium AD, the more difference I can see.  My skin feel smoother, the color is more even – I can even go out without foundation now – something I never would have done before because my skin was so blotchy.

Now I have to be honest here and say that I didn’t see a lot of difference right away.  Ivette as well as many of her other customers have seen great results in as little as 5 days.  My skin was a bit more stubborn than that.  But I have 30+ years of sun damage to contend with.

Another great thing about Nerium AD is how easy it is to use – simply apply it to clean, damp skin every night before you go to bed.  That’s it.  I dont want something that takes 19 steps and an hour to do… Nerium AD makes it easy and you still get amazing results.

If you want beautiful skin by the holidays – I highly recommend you check out Nerium AD.  It’s even guaranteed!

“Baking” Up Some Romance – Passion Parties Review & #Giveaway

Thanks for stopping by the 2012 Diva Holiday Gift Guide from Party Plan Divas!

When Independent Passion Consultant Lisanne Roy said she was sending me a “No Bake Cupcake set” from Passion Parties for the Diva Holiday Gift Guide,  I was a bit… well, confused.   When did Passion Parties take up selling pastries? 

Treat your lover to the sweetest holiday treat this season – YOU!   Delicious and oh so decadent, you’ll keep them coming back for more. Includes Strawberry Creamsicles Edible Massage cream, Candylicious Cotton Candy enhancement gel, White Chocolate RomantaTherapy Passion Powder with feather, and Strawberry flavored Nipple Nibblers.

Now, this is about as risque as I get on this blog – and the only review you are getting from me is that all of the products taste just exactly as they are described. ;)

What I will also say though is that I totally appreciate companies creating products that support togetherness and playfulness – especially this time of year.  Did you know that more divorces are filed in January than any other month of the year?   According to Psychology Today, January is considered “Divorce Month” with so many couples calling it quits after the holidays.  It’s no doubt that life gets more hectic the closer we get to the end of the year, and I love that companies like Passion Parties are creating products to help counteract that trend with some great “together play” gift sets.

Passion Parties has been a leader in the Romance Industry for over 15 years.  Through in-home, ladies only, tasteful shows, women are encouraged and empowered to help spice things up at home and keep the romance alive.  With a strong focus on monogamy, Passion Parties is helping to bring the divorce rate down, one healed marriage at a time.

We believe that anyone in a committed, loving relationship can benefit from Passion Parties’ products. Our line of love potions, sensual accessories and adult toys open lines of communication and add an exciting new dimension of pleasure and fun.

I love bath and body products.  I have a double sink vanity and the cabinets underneath are absolutely jam packed with wonderful smelling soaps, scrubs, lotions, and oils.  My favorite way to relax is in my big garden tub with whichever set of the dozens I choose from beneath my vanity.  The Surprise Parties new Guavalava set that Independent Consultant Melissa Dewitt sent for the Holiday Gift Guide has certainly become one of my favorite ways to unwind.

Pink Zebra Review – Get Your Sprinkle On!

Thanks for stopping by the 2012 Diva Holiday Gift Guide from Party Plan Divas!

Did you know that your sense of smell has the longest “memory” than any of your other senses?  The sense of smell is handled by the same part of the brain (the limbic system) that handles memories and emotions. That’s why we can immediately recognize and respond to smells from childhood such as the smell of clean sheets, cookies baking in the oven, or maybe Grandma’s perfume.

One of my favorite parts about the holidays is the scents.  From the smell of pumpkin pie to pine trees, I begin making my house smell like the holidays long before the temperatures actually start to drop.  When my Pink Zebra package arrived from Dana Lea Loukanis with holiday scents I immediately unpacked and got to warming… filling my house with the scents of pumpkin bread and pine… together.  See, Pink Zebra scents are “sprinkles” – and you can mix and match your scents just by mixing and matching your sprinkles!

Sprinkles are made in America of our premium Soft Soy® wax and high quality fragrance oils, which are blended together at super concentrated levels to deliver up to 50% more fragrance than average candles. Designed to give you home fragrance variety at an affordable price, you can decide what you want, how much impact you want, and when you want it. Just simply pour it on.
No mess, no worries.

These little sprinkles are no joke – they pack in a LOT of fragrance.  In fact I wasn’t sure how much to use in the Simmer Pot, so I did the “less is more” philosophy and even still my entire great room was filled with the scent.  Mike even yelled from the back office to ask what I was cooking! Ha! :)

Sprinkles and Simmer Pots aren’t the only thing Pink Zebra carries though – they also have an entire line of candles, reed diffusers, soaps and lotions – all with their exquisite fragrances.  Everything from Pink Zebra would make a great gift for anyone on your shopping list this holiday season.

To see all of Pink Zebra’s line of products plus their hostess program and opportunity check out Dana Lea Loukanis’s website – http://www.pinkzebrahome.com/danalea

Vessel Scents of Style Review & #Giveaway

I love a product that “multitasks” – one product that does multiple jobs.  When Susan Harward and Karen Carter first introduced me to the brand new party plan company – Vessel Scents of Style – I knew I had found the perfect new “multitasking” piece!

Vessel revolutionizes the way women shop for jewelry and fragrance. Merging fragrance and jewelry into custom accessory pieces, Vessel creates the fusion of scent and style.  Vessel is a direct sales, home party company built to empower women and give them an opportunity to love their work while building a successful future for themselves.

I have to admit, I was completely blown away by the level of innovation the two founders of this company has.  Jewelry and fragrance?!  Together!? GENIUS!  If there are two things I make sure to put on every single day -  it is jewelry and perfume.  No question.  Now with my Vessel Scents of Style necklace I get to do both at the same time.

With Vessel Scents of Style you can choose your locket which you can then fill with ScentSpheres - round, heart, flower or star shaped scented beads that you put into your locket – giving you a great scent without having to touch your skin.  This is perfect for women who have allergies or skin sensitivities  who do not want to put a fragrance directly onto their skin.  You can even order unscented ScentSpheres that you can spray your own perfume or essential oils on to have your own fragrance.

Karen and Susan sent me a Circle Vessel Locket with a Star and Turquoise charm.  I told her I liked very “clean” scents, so she surprised me with Aqua ScentSpheres which perfectly matched the turquoise charm, scented with Cucumber Green Tea fragrance.  I admit I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the locket – I expected something much smaller – but liked that not only was the locket larger, but the chain was longer as well.

Vessel’s range of chains, lockets and scented inserts are interchangeable for truly customized pieces. Every locket or charm can be attached to any chain, and each locket can be filled with our proprietary ScentSpheres infused with a choice of tantalizing fragrance that suites each individual perfectly. Create a casual style with a fresh scent and fun jewelry selection, a formal style with a more intense fragrance and elegant jewelry piece, or anything in between.

You can check out Vessel Scents of Style’s entire product line, plus their generous hostess and compensation plan, on their website – http://www.vesselscentsofstyle.com

As the temps get lower, there is nothing better than snuggling up to the one you love.  Party Gals – one of the leading romance companies in the direct sales industry – has got everything you need to stay warm this holiday season.

Party Gals has been synonymous with home parties for over 16 years and has transformed people’s lives! That’s best part of the Party Gals Experience… the lives that we touch and transform.

Independent Party Gals Consultant Te’Amo Edwards sent me the Alluring Evening Gift Set and Massage Candle for the Diva Holiday Gift Guide.  This exclusive Body Scrub and Body Butter will “transform your dry skin to soft, supple, beg to be touched skin.”  As someone who suffers from chronically dry skin year round, I can attest to this claim – big time.  My skin looked, felt, and smelled amazing.

The Alluring Evening scent is light Vanilla and sweet Cotton Candy – the perfect scent to set the mood with just the right amount of fragrance– not too much perfume yet a soft and lovely scent.  When paired with the Ambrosia Candle you can literally fill the room with a romantic, sexy fragrance to spend a perfect “warm” night in.   If you are looking to really heat things up, try Party Gals Liquerwish – a flavored enhancement cream for her.   All Party Gals products are tastefully and discreetly packaged to keep even the feistiest of tastes confidential.
