#giveaway for a 4pk of PHOTOTRAX changeable photo display ends 4/13

"I am sharing this giveaway for my AWESOME EMPTYNESTER FANS to have a chance at winning this great Product!!"

 was sent to me and literally took me about 10 minutes to put them up.  My only problem was I ran out of photo's to fill all 4!  I used mine to frame a larger photo collection on my wall.  The uses for this are endless!  Get multiple packs and create a boarder for a room for a personalized feel.  Use it for a unique look on stair steps by placing them on the tall portion of the stair. You can put the normal 4 by 6 or they offer instructions for larger photo's.  The easy to stick back made for no wholes, no noise when putting up and easy placement.  Changing the photo's out is even easier as you just pop them in keeping your walls up-to-date in seconds!  I really love this product and give it 5 out of 5 snapshots!

Check out how easy it is to hang:

If you think this is a great idea make sure to Vote to get it on the shelves at Walmart.

"Emptynesters is promoting this giveaway for her awesome fans to have a chance to win one of these Survival Bracelets!!"

A beautiful handmade bracelet that could save your life!

Knotty Patrol Survival Bracelets is a small business that Rachel Castellez created for the sole purpose of raising funds for the Dover Police Mounted Patrol in Dover, NH. Rachel has been a faithful volunteer for the Mounted Patrol for 7 years and pours her heart and soul into it! The unit is funded solely on donations, contributions and profits raised from fundraisers. She is currently making paracord 550 survival bracelets, which are made from military issued parachute cord and are carried on military officers in field duty as a survival tool. A solid color bracelet, when unraveled, can hold up to 550 pounds and can be used in various emergency situations.
More info about Knotty Patrol:

  • A portion of each sale goes to benefit the Dover Mounted Patrol.
  • Bracelets come in multiple sizes and color combos: XS, S, M, L and XL.Simply measure your wrist to determine size in inches and I will work off of that. If your bracelet does not fit to your liking I will re-size it for free!

  • Dog Collars come in custom orders and sizes: $25 for dog collars regardless of size.
  • To order your own Bracelet email Rachel your wrist size, color and any other options you are interested in.

Review by Mom Does Reviews:

These beautifully made bracelets are a family affair in my house. My hubby has a Blue and Black bracelet. I have a Purple and Black bracelet. Even my 9 year-old son has a Yellow and Green one. We all love them. Rachel knots the paracord so evenly and expertly, they are indestructible, unique and beautiful. I love the quick release plastic buckles, even my son can get his on one-handed. They're fashionable, fun and functional! I have to admit, my favorite part of Rachel's Survival bracelets is her dedication and generous donations to The Dover Mounted Police. A portion of sales goes to support the Dover Mounted Police. As you may have guessed, she is a horse lover. I admire her entrepreneurial spirit and all she has done for her favorite charity. Please be sure to like and visit Rachel's Knotty Patrol Survival Bracelet Facebook Page.

Slap Koozies - Like the 80's slap bracelet, but for your beverage! Review & #giveaway

Slap Koozies - Like the 80's slap bracelet, but for your beverage!
 Review by:
All views all completely my own, 
I am not coerced in anyway to give false or misleading information for my readers.

 I received a black Slap Koozie as pictured above for my review. First thing I noticed was the great HELLO MY NAME IS imprinted like sticker on it, making it great to personalize your Slap Koozie in permanent marker so as never to get you beverage mixed up with someone else. Though you can totally personalize your own slap Koozie and get bulk pricing if you want to design your own, on  their website. It is made with 2 of the like slap bracelets we have all seen or had that you slap around your wrist, however these are alittle more thick then those that I have felt. There is one in the top third and one in the bottom third  of the Koozie, and believe me they hold on! Not to a bad point at all don't get me wrong, they are strong enough to hold on and not fall off. The material they are made of is neoprene and is absorbent for the sweat of a cold beverage in a hot summer day and also has the thermal thickness needed to keep your favorite beverage cold for an extended period of time. I used one for a drink for 2 hours and it was still just as cold from the first sip to the last, so I fully feel these function as they are meant to do 100%.

 I know I will be using mine this summer and look forward to showing it off to my family and friends that it is unique and functional! 

PS... you can still slap it around your wrist!!! :)

Product Description
SlapKooler™ band is a banded 'slap koozie' beverage insulator that you can 'slap' on your can, bottle, arm, leg, friends, or people you just meet. Many people call it a 'slap koozie' or a 'slap wrap', but we call the SlapKoolerTM the next generation of awesome. Dual metal recoiling bands slap the neoprene koozie insulator around your can or bottle, just as it's appeal wraps itself around your heart!
This is a picture of the Slap parts they use inside these koozies.
ALOT more durable then the bracelets of the 80's

Slap Koozies is going to give 1 lucky reader one of their Koozies!!
The Giveaway will end 4/15 11:59pm est

Woman of God™ silicone wristband

by Emptynester Reviews and Giveaways
All reviews are completely my own opinions, 
I am not coerced in anyway to give a false or misleading review to my readers.

    I received a pink Christian Wristband  to review for this article and was excited to do this review for Christian Silicone Wristbands. There has been a surge in people wearing these wristbands for sometime now, for all different reasons, with all different sayings. I feel that sending a message with such a heartfelt statement as Woman of God is a reminder to myself as well as a message to others of who I am as a person, a Christian. These wristbands are made of all silicone and one size fits all. There is no binding or tightness  to wear them, which makes wearing one easy and not at all bothersome. They are easy to clean just wash with soap and water, no muss no fuss.
    I like the color selections available as well as the other varieties of, I am a MAN OF GOD, and CHILD OF GOD.
    I fully recommend these Christian Silicone Wristbands to anyone who would like to show who they are with a cute wristband.

 Product Description
I am a Woman of God™ silicone wristband

Picasso Cruelty-Free Hair Feather Extensions Review and #giveaway ends 4/8


Cruelty-Free Feather Hair Extensions


All opinions provided in my Review are completely my own. I was not coerced monetarily or in any other way to leave a false or misleading review.

 I recently reviewed hair feathers, to add into your own hair, for the company Picasso Hair Feathers. This seems to be the new rage for women, well as little girls right now, so I was excited to research how these work. I was very surprised at the selection of colors and styles available, I had no idea. I had only seen the purple, red, pink, I didn't know they came in more inconspicuous colors as well. That made me extremely happy, as I would like more serene colors if adding to my own hair. They came with a full set of instructions as well as a link to their website, which has a video on  How to apply hair feathers yourself! Yeah!! I like user friendly video's! The process was so simple, and I had mine in in a matter of a minute! They are so cute and stylish! My friends and family complimented me on the one I applied as soon as I showed them. I put it underneath about 2inches off the crown of my head. so you only can catch a glimpse if I push my hair back or if I want to show it off, I pull my hair up in a bun and tadaa, there it is!! These hair feathers are said to last 4 to 6 weeks and mine is nice and tight yet after 2weeks, I am happy to say.I am very happy to see these are Cruelty Free
Great Quality, sturdy, love the selection, price is right over all!
 Picasso Hair Feathers is the best I have seen in my search of Hair Feathers!
 I think I just may go bold with my next one and go Purple!!

I also have a link on the side of my Blog page for HAIR FEATHERS, so if anytime you would like to browse them or would like to buy, feel free to use the shortcut I created for you..:)

Product Description
Picasso hair feathers are the 1st supplier in cruelty-free hair feathers. Add color, texture and style to your hair with animal friendly feathers. You can wash, blow dry, curl and straighten (up to 180 degrees) your feathers which will last you 4 - 6 weeks!
