My Lip Stuff Product #Review and #Giveaway! (All 50 U.S. States) Ends 1/18 (Rafflecopter)



Christmas has passed and now it's Winter! It's really starting to get cold here in Tennessee and in many other U.S. states too. My lips usually start to get dry and chapped this time of year. But a few years ago, I won a giveaway on another website for My Lip Stuff lip balm. Ever since then, I've been hooked! I don't buy any other lip balm for my family, but the ones on MyLipStuff.com!

My favorite flavors are Watermelon, Strawberry Daiquiri, Vanilla, Kitty Litter Cake, and more! I am always ordering favorites along with new ones to try! I also enjoy handing them out to my mom friends. My three children and I love My Lip Stuff lip balms. My five and a half year old keeps a tube in her backpack to use at school. My Lip Stuff Lip Balms also work great underneath raw little noses. I didn't have any petroleum jelly with me while traveling a few years ago. But I had my lip balms. So I put some underneath my daughter's nose because it kept running and she was complaining of the area underneath her nose hurting. My Lip Stuff lip balm healed it!

I love the smell of My Lip Stuff Lip Balms on my lips! I keep several different types in my purse and in the diaper bag. I love giving one away to each person who comes to my home to visit! They never leave my house empty handed.


My Lip Stuff products are never tested on animals, only on humans! They are also made in the U.S.A.! You can also purchase natural bath and body products, products for men, Lickity Lips, Lip Gloss, Tinted Gloss, Body Butter, Healing Butter, Sprays and 100% Vegan Lip Balms too!

Connect with My Lip Stuff on Facebook, Twitter, and Sign Up for My Lip Stuff's Newsletter to received deals, discounts, and more!

Order your lip balm from My Lip Stuff or Amazon today! Receive FREE shipping in the United States on ALL order of $25.00 or more! Make sure to check the "Sales & Free Stuff" section before checking out to receive something for free with your order!

Enter below using the Rafflecopter form for a chance to Win a 6-pack of Random flavored Lip Balms from My Lip Stuff! Giveaway is open to residents in ALL 50 U.S. States, 18 years of age or older!

2014 Christmas Gift Guide: Daddy & Co. #Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/30 #christmasgiftguide #holidaygiftguide





I have been working with Daddy & Company for a few years now. My children aren't little anymore, as you can see. They are now seven, five and a half, and two and a half! They grow up way too fast. Seems like only yesterday that my youngest was born. Now she's up, walking, talking, doing everything else that my older children do. No more babies in this house!


Daddy & Company sells Daddy Scrubs for new Daddies to wear in the hospital when they are helping coach their wives or girlfriends when they are giving birth. They also sell many helpful tools for new and experienced fathers such as books, diaper bags, and more! It's the only website that I can find children's books with stories about little ones and their dads. Daddy & Co. is having a BIG sale right now on children's books, t-shirts, and more! Check it out!


Both my girls loved the Daddy Bear Christmas Set! One of them wanted the book, the other one took the bear, and then they sat down together and read the book! The bear is super soft and so cuddly.


I am saving the Daddy Travel Mug to give to my husband as a Christmas Gift. He's always looking for slender cups to fit in the vehicle that he drives to work. The new "I'm The Daddy" travel mug, a perfect gift for the daddy on the go! The travel mug can hold up to 14 oz. and it has a double wall stainless steel tumbler. It's foam insulated and has a threaded snap fit lid!

Connect with Daddy & Co. on Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest, and Youtube.


Enter below using the Rafflecopter form for a chance to win both the Daddy Bear Christmas Set and a I'm the Daddy Travel Mug from Daddy & Co.!

Disclosure: I received a Daddy Bear Christmas Set and a I'm the Daddy Travel Mug in exchange for my review post No other compensation was exchanged or received.

2014 Christmas Gift Guide: Safari Ltd. Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/28 #holidaygiftguide #christmasgiftguide



I have done a few reviews and giveaways for Safari Ltd. since I started my blog. I really love their replicas and how my children love them even more! My two and a half year old daughter is sleeping with her giraffe! I don't know how she does that, as I would find it uncomfortable, but she loves him! My five and a half year old got a reindeer and my seven year old son received a dog, a Labrador retriever.

Safari Ltd. has created model animals, trains, planes, mammals, and more on their website, and you can purchase them at Toys R Us, Hobbie Town, and more! We have even seen their TOOBS (tubes full of little tiny replicas/toys) at the Nashville Zoo! We keep the TOOB toys in our children's to go backpacks. Every time we go some place like a restaurant or someone else's house, we take their backpacks full of little toys, snacks, and more to keep them busy if we need to, and it works!



Connect with Safari Ltd. on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus, Youtube, and Instagram.

Enter below using the Rafflecopter form for a chance to win either One Replica or One TOOB of your choice from Safari Ltd.! Giveaway open to residents who live in the main 48 continental United States only, 18 years of age or older.

2014 Christmas Gift Guide: I See Me! #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/23 (Quick Giveaway) #christmasgiftguide #holidaygiftguide





I love the personalization of the children's books at I See Me. My girls love them so much, that we read them over and over again, and they keep asking me to buy them more. I love that my children can see their own photos and that their names are incorporated into the stories and the stories are about them. The books are also very well made and haven't come apart at all!


All three of my children love their personalized children's books from I See Me! I asked my five year old daughter what she would read, and she said that she wanted another book from I See Me!



When you read books to your children from the day they are born, you help to foster their love of reading and learning. Even if they are just sitting on your lap, and they are turning the pages, and you make up a short story as they do this, you are helping to plant little seeds in them to help them enjoy reading! This would be a great gift for any child during winter break, for Valentine's Day (since it's coming up in a couple of months), or for Easter or their Birthday!

Connect with I See Me on Facebook and Pintrest.

Enter below for a chance to Win a personalized children's book from I See Me using the Rafflecopter form. Giveaway ends on 12/23, quick giveaway. Open to residents in the main 48 continental United States only. (You won't receive your book in time for Christmas, I'm sorry.)

Sponsored Post: Tips To Keep Your Home Cozy This Winter From David Leon, Home-Improvement Expert!

Disclosure: I will receive a gift card in exchange for my blog post. No other compensation was exchanged or received. The below opinions are not those of Heather Kelly or Airplanes and Dragonflies blog. 

(my own image)

Winter is finally here and for many Americans, it’s time to bundle up and stay indoors! Whether you have a favorite down quilt to bury yourself in or love sitting by the wood-burning fireplace, keeping warm is key this Winter! To ensure a wonderful and cozy winter season, licensed contractor and TV home-improvement expert David Leon from Home Made Simple on the Oprah Winfrey Network has provided the following tips to help make your home as comfy as possible this season.
  1. Heating system and air filters – Have your heating system serviced every year and check the filters system every month. Also, inspect your system’s exhaust vent for rust, damage, or any corrosion.
  2. Seal the leaks – Check to make sure your doors and windows are properly sealed so heat doesn’t escape.  Inspect caulking and weather stripping around openings for wear and tear, and replace if necessary.
  3. Plumbing – Busted water pipes can cause expensive damage. Take time now to wrap outside pipes that might be exposed to extreme temperatures. Review the locations for the main water and fuel shut-off valves with all members of your household.
  4. Have a plan - When you own a home, you know that things are going to break down – but when it happens, do you know who you’ll call or what you’ll do?  A home warranty is a great way to protect your budget against costly repairs, and save yourself the time and hassle of finding a qualified professional to get major systems and appliances up and running again.


This winter, homeowners should also be aware of important warning signs and potential heating system hazards to protect their homes from any accidents!  In 2011, faulty and improperly used heating equipment accounted for nearly 400 deaths nationwide, more than 53,000 fires and $893 million in direct property damage, according to the National Fire Protection Association. To help prevent heating system hazards, be aware of the following critical signs when you’re indoors this winter:
  • Always be aware of gas odors. If you smell gas around your heating unit, leave the area and call your gas company immediately.
  • Be sure your pilot light is burning a steady blue flame. If it is not, call your heating professional or a gas company.
  • Take a close look at your exhaust fan for any rust, damage or deterioration. If you notice any, call a qualified professional and describe what you see to determine whether a repair is needed.
  • Take extra care with space heaters. They should be plugged directly into a wall outlet, never into an extension cord, and turned off at night. When in use, always be sure space heaters are a safe distance from curtains and other flammable items

Along with these warning signs, American Home Shield, the nation’s leading provider of home protection plans, reminds homeowners to use extra care when operating space heaters. For instance, they should be plugged directly into a wall outlet, never into an extension cord, and turned off at night. When in use, always be sure space heaters are a safe distance from curtains and other flammable items.

Homeowners can watch helpful videos about a variety of home maintenance tips and home heating warning signs at www.YouTube.com/TheAHSTeam.  The informational videos are hosted by David Leon. American Home Shield also publishes the Home Matters blog, a resource to help homeowners balance their busy lives with tips and news on everything home.
