I looked around for several weeks trying to find a great alternative to my fabric oven mitts that were really trying my patience.
I have so many issues with the traditional oven mitt, due to my small hands when trying to grab any type of baking sheet I would always touch the food. I wanted silicone gloves this time due to the sanitary options they offer, and how easy they are to clean compared to the traditional oven mitt made of fabric.
These arrived in a very nice package, then they are sealed inside the box. This is a very nice feature that I hadn't seen at the local stores. The nice packaging makes these silicone oven gloves perfect for gifts for birthdays in the summer month, or a gift to your favorite cook; plus they can easily be wrapped up.
These make removing the hot and ever so heavy baking stones out of the oven a breeze! I do have to use both hands to lift the baking stone out, with the gloves I can easily grasp the stone to lift it out; instead of calling for my husband to help me :)
I definitely recommend these, I was thrilled when I noticed the tiny hearts on the gloves for the grip. The silicone gloves easily washed off with soap and water, I actually washed my hands with them on to get them clean.
They dry quickly too, I have been in a predicament before that all my fabric mitts were in the wash, and I needed them. A nice added benefit is they can be used with grilling, I am always afraid of the fabric mitts catching fire from jumping flames, not with these!

Over the past few years I have experimented with several different types of dogs tags, as I have large breed dogs that are VERY active. In my experience I have found that the aluminum tags engraving smudge off, and that plastic tags seem to dissapear within 6 months.
So what do you do when your furry friend looses his id all of the time? That is where I found Doggie ID, they feature nice plastic, heavy duty tags that is backed with a lifetime guarantee on all Doggie iD’s! The tags are perfect in size and are created with large breed dogs in mind.
This is a dog tag you don't want to miss out on! I recommend checking out their websitehere, if you are looking for ID tags for your pets. I have had no issue with mine, that is even with a puppy around ocassionally giving it a tug of two when they are playing.
I was lucky enough to receive a dog tag to review honestly. Try your luck and sign up for their GIVEAWAY!

What is Moroccan Ghassoul Clay and why should I use it?
This is a weekly mask with natural and organic clay from deep inside the Ancient Atlas Mountains of Morocco this clay is the perfect skin treatment for cleaning, detoxifying, toning and rejuvenating your skin.
Ghassoul clay has natural antimicrobial properties which makes it a detoxifier for clearing harmful substances from the surface of skin, or toxin built up.
This clay has been known to be the only clay that contains 100% minerals and other trace elements. It has silica, iron, potassium, sodium and much more. These elements give Ghassoul clay the ability to absorb toxins which are heavy metals under the skin that are positively charged as it releases elements in a unique ionic exchange process.
Here's how you can use Moroccan Ghassoul Clay at home:
Here is how you make the clay at home
You will need:
Bowl or cup to mix in
Utensil to stir
Mix a large tablespoon for Face Masks with 5 tablespoons of warm water to the consistency of a thin cookie dough.
Apply to your face.
You will need to use 3/4ths of the jar if making a Body Mask like I did.
For full body masks, or larger areas than your face if you have a warm nice day and it is nice outside, simply put on an old swimsuit and wash this off outside so that you do not rinse all of it down your drain.
This is a perfect natural therapy that will help to maintain and preserve your youthfulness and balance the oil level of the skin, control breakouts at any age, smooth skin texture and give you glowing soft skin.
My skin felt smoothed and refreshed after my full body mask at home. I will use this for weekly facials and once a month body masks. This clay did not give me the tingle sensation like bentonite clay has in the past. You may have a little bit of redness for about 5-10 minutes after that will clear leaving you with amazing results.

Meet the artist behind the jewelry
Inspired from Process and the Past The Pickle Queen originated at an evening of crafts and craft beer. Lulu and a good friend, who is also artist, sat over a table full of polymer clay and began making funny little vegetables.
Lulu's affinity for pickles inspired her to make pickle earrings and office paraphernalia. After that day, LuLuThePickleQueen started exploring new ways of using polymer clay and began creating unique upcycled pieces. Since the founding, Lulu has continuously explored new ideas and perfecting techniques that create artistic and simple pieces that she incorporates into each unique, one of a kind item.
Lulu's current work is inspired by nature and ancient jewelry pieces from Rome, Egypt and Mesopotamia. She is proud of the direction her work has taken her. She loves exploring new jewelry ideas, and bringing you affordable handcrafted jewelry to pair with any outfit.
