As I said, I love to write and it is definitely my favorite thing to do.

About Me

So over the last few months I've posted a few blogs asking you guys what you wanted to know about me. Some of you have been reading my blog for almost a year and a half and probably don't know a thing about me! I always love to find out about who's behind the blog I'm reading and figured maybe you guys would like that too.

The question most asked was where does "Peaches" come from in my blog name, Peaches Reviews. Peaches is actually the nickname my boyfriend gave me almost immediately after we became friends. He always says that when he saw me the first thing that came to his mind was that I was cute as a peach with my cherubic skin. Ironically, I hate peaches and anything peach flavored!

I've also been asked if I have children. No, I do not. While I love kids, they're not for me.

Some of you even want to know where I'm from. Do you plan on stalking me?? haha SIKE! I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I was born here, but lived in a small town called Bloomsburg from 5 to 20. I'm so happy to be back in Philly now and really don't plan on going anywhere to far. Well unless it's someplace warm. Anyone looking for a roommate in Miami? haha

So thats about all the questions I had to answer.... feel free to ask more and I'll update the post!

Crazy Dog Tshirts Review


Crazy Dog T-shirts (www.crazydogtshirts.com) is the number one source online for funny t shirts and vintage shirts that help you stand out and get noticed.

I was recently given the opportunity to review a t-shirt from Crazy Dog Tshirts I chose the "I have had adequate amounts of cowbell" tshirt for my boyfriend. He is always talking about "more cowbell" and even had a cowbell app on his iphone. It gets a little old to me after awhile so I figured I'd send him a little message and get him a shirt! The shirt is very soft and comfy and is reasonably price at only $14.99.

Disclosure: I received the above t-shirt from crazydogtshirts.com to review for free. No monetary compensation has been offered or accepted. The opinions above are my own.

Printable Super Bowl Party Games Pack Review


The Super Bowl is just around the corner! What better to accompany the football game and commercials then Super Bowl Home Party Games?? I recently had a chance to review the Super Bowl Party Games and really had a blast playing them with my family. They feature different types of trivia like Super Bowl trivia, fast food trivia and "Some like it hot" trivia. An example from "Some like it hot" trvia :


What is the most expensive spice in the world?
a. Tumeric
b. Cardamom
c. Ginger
d. Saffron


The answer is Saffron. Saffron is made from the dried stigmas of the purple saffron crocus and it requires 70,000-250,000 flowers to make 1 pound of saffron, a common spice in Indian dishes.


I also loved the Super Bowl Newlywed game for the girls who HATE football. It asks questions like: Who will say he is here more for the chip-and-dip bowl than the Super Bowl? The idea is that the ladies play and try to guess what the guy's will say! Sounds like fun to me!!


Features
  • Instant delivery via email and download
  • One price ($19.95): no shipping or handling
  • Print as many copies as you want
  • Games for girls as well as boys!
Before you're big Super Bowl party, I suggest you snatch up your own printable Super Bowl Party Games! If you'd like to sample some other games they offer, please feel free to check out these fun free printables!

Ma-Mi Skin Care Review



Our mission at Ma Mi is to help moms and expecting moms around the world look and feel healthy, youthful, and vibrant by providing a highly effective, natural , and safe skin care line made to address their unique needs.

Everything we do is firmly grounded in a belief that purity is essential to your skin’s health. We strongly believe in working in harmony with your body’s inherent renewal abilities to promote and protect healthy, glowing skin.

With Ma Mi, your skin receives everything it needs and nothing it doesn't; our products contain pure, highly concentrated active ingredients that produce quick, visible results.  In a few simple steps you can experience dramatic, positive changes in your skins health and appearance.



Ma-Mi Skin Care sent me three items to review. I received a sample size bottle of Revitalize Cleanser, a sample of Satiated Cleanser, and two samples of Radiant Exfoliater. 


I really enjoyed the natural feel and smell of all the products. My skin feels soft and smooth. I have very clean skin to begin with so I can't comment on that part of it. My only complaint would be that I'm not used to an exfoliator of this sort. I'm used to an exfoliator with gritty sand particles or something that feels like its sloughing off the skin. This exfoliator uses glycolic acid and purified water to shed dead skin. I guess my complaint is not about the product, because it works fantastically. I suppose its just my own ignorance in not knowing about this type of exfoliator!


If you haven't tried it before, I definitely recommend you try Ma-Mi Skin Care . You can even order a Sample Pack for $4.95 to see if you like the products, which I know you will. And shipping is only $3 for any order!!

Isabella Water Bottle Review


So what's your New Year's resolution? Mine is to drink more water. I never ever drink the recommended amount of water daily. In fact I'm proud of myself if I get through one 20oz water bottle during my 8-430 work shift. I know, its terrible!! So my idea was to get a reusable water bottle and carry it all the time so hopefully I can drink more water.


Well, Isabella Water had perfect timing and sent me an Isabella Blue Bottle to review. The bottle holds 25.36 oz and is made with the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel! It's an amazing blue color and the pictures just don't do it justice!

One of my favorite parts of Isabella Water is $10 of every purchase will help fund a well to provide clean drinking water in Africa or Asia!!! Umm can we say... AWESOME!! I'm all about doing some good for our world!

So far I've filled the bottle twice. That means I've drank over 50oz of water today!!! Go me!! That's waaaayyy more than I usually drink!!


What's your New Years Resolution?? Do you have any tips for drinking more water??

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com and the Tomoson weekly featured sponsor Favorite Wigs - Shop Name Brand Wigs at Low Prices! Large Wig Selection of Forever Young Wigs, and other Quality Wigs. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Smile With Me Saturday Blog Hop - Week 11!!!







First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!


This week it's Tania from My Adventures in Mommyland!!





I asked Tania a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her.


1) When did you first start blogging? Why? 


I started My Adventures in Mommyland in August 2010. I've always enjoyed writing (I was one of those little girls who kept a diary) and wanted to share my experiences as a first time mother, my fun ideas, and any other crazy ramblings.


2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping? 


I love making new friends and finding great blogs to read! I love all the great ideas I get from other bloggers!


3) What's your favorite hobby? 


That's an easy one...blogging!! :) I also really enjoy (trying) to be crafty.


4) Who's your role model?


Hmm that's a tough one...I don't really think I have just one role model. There are many people in my life that have qualities about them that I admire and each one is special to me but to be honest I couldn't really narrow it down to one person.
