* Woolite Everyday Review & Giveaway! *


 

I had the opportunity to sample and review Woolite Everyday thanks to Crowdtap and Woolite. Growing up when I thought of Woolite, I thought of laundry detergent for your delicates and "unmentionables." But I've learned that Woolite now makes detergent that can be used for all of your clothing.

 
I was sent 10 samples, one for me to sample and review, and 9 to give away so that my friends can try it out too! I made sure to put my sample to the test by trying it out on my dark clothes; which included a few jeans, school uniforms, work uniforms and baby boy's baseball uniform top. To my surprise, the clothes were as clean as if I had used a harsher detergent, but they felt softer and didn't look as worn. I also loved that Woolite smells great but did not leave my clothes with a heavily perfumed scent.

About Woolite Everyday:
  • Cleans & Cares for all fabrics and colors (even whites.)
  • Specially formulated to prevent damage (fading,stretching & shrinking) to clothing, so that your clothes look like new longer.
  • Designed for use in both regular and HE machines.
I enjoyed using my sample and gave away 6 others to family and friends; but I saved 3 samples to share with my readers! :)

 
If you would like to try Woolite Everyday you can enter below! I will randomly choose 3 readers via random.org to receive a sample pack (which also includes a coupon!) of Woolite Everyday.



 
You must be 18 or older and a US resident to enter. The giveaway is open from Thursday, April 25, 2013 until Saturday, May 4, 2013 11:59 pm EST. Winners will be announced Wednesday, May 8, 2013 and contacted via email. The winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen. Make sure to follow via Google Friends Connect, facebook, twitter or pinterest to stay up-to-date with what's going on at Butterfly Kisses of Love!

What is Crowdtap? Crowdtap is a company that allows brands to partner with consumers to gain insight and spread the word about their product. Would you like to learn more or join? You can find out more or join here.

Disclosure: I received (10) 2oz. samples of Woolite Everyday by being a Crowdtap Member and a Wooliteer. I was given one to sample myself, and nine to give away. Although I was provided with the sample the opinions are 100% my own. This post contains referral links.

Sunday's Inspirational Song and Scripture

 
 
II Corinthians 5:17 (New King James Version)
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."
 
I hope you enjoy this Sunday's song; it's become a favorite for me and the children. I'm not sure if they fully understand the meaning of the words being that they are so young and haven't had many life experiences; but for me it is encouraging to know that it is never too late to make a change for the better! Each and every day is a new opportunity to grow, to love, to forgive, to be a better person and work towards your goals!
 
Have a blessed day!

* Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch Review *

 
It seems like my family is always on the go. Whether it is school, church, sports or extra curricular activities, our mornings are usually hurried. Having an undemanding morning is a luxury! With that being said, I usually don't have time to cook a big breakfast, but I am still concerned about making healthy choices for my family. Our go to breakfast during the week is usually cereal; I like to choose cereals that are nutritious, and of course my children want something that tastes good!
 
We recently had the opportunity to try out a new cereal from Post - Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch. I feel it is the perfect combination of what the kids want (great taste) and what I want (good for you!) Here's the nutritional information:
  • 33 g of Whole Grain per serving (Over 2/3 of the recommended daily whole grain intake!
  • Serving Size: 1 Cup
  • 230 Calories
  • Provides 12 essential vitamins and minerals
  • 5 g of protein per serving
  • Me: "I like that it is nutritious and has a sweet crunchy taste. No need to add additional sweeteners because it has the perfect blend of sweet and crunch!"
  • Hubby: "The yogurt taste sneaks in when you least expect it."
  • Baby Boy: "I really like the yogurt parts and the flakes!"
  • Baby Girl: "I eat it without milk and it tastes great!"
 
I will definitely purchase this for my family in the future. One box did not last long in my household - when my family likes something it seems to disappear! It is sold at retailers across the US and on Amazon. I have recently  seen it on sale in my local grocery store for a great price; so it is definitely on my shopping list.
 
You can find out more about Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch as well as the many other flavors of Honey Bunches of Oats on:
Try it out, you won't regret it! :)
 
Enjoy!
