Spring Fever Giveaway: Vizardz & Origami Owl

Welcome to the Spring Fever Event hosted by Andersons Angels and Joy of Momma Joyner. This Event features a little bit of everything to help you need to help welcome Spring! Each blog has gathered up a unique Prize Package of $25 or more so be sure to visit each blog from the linky below and enter for your chance to win some really amazing prizes! This event will end on March 15th at 11:59pm EST.

Vizardz 2.5D Designer Night Light
I partnered with Vizardz for this Hop and was able to review this unique night light with art work from artist and designer Johnathan West. They have a whole collection called J West Collection for boys and girls night lights. They have 11 different designs to choose form.

You may be wondering, "What is 2.5D?" 2.5D is described on Vizardz site as "pictures combine a three-dimensional topography with your two-dimensional digital photographs and images." This combination adds depth, texture, and contrast to breathe life into your ordinary photos. When light is applied to a Vizardz 2.5D picture, the stunning beauty of their technique is demonstrated, rendering the image in 3D.

I chose the unicorn because I know my niece would love to fall asleep every night with this night light on. It is a decent size for a night light and not too bright, not too dim. I happen to love the 3D design, it gives nice depth to the design when the light is off as well as when it is on. The colors are not vibrant when the light is off, then in the dark all of the colors POP with beautiful colors! The plug is on a swivel so you can turn the light what ever direction you would like or you can just keep it straight. I give this night light a 10 out of 10. These lights will cost you a bit over $20, but are well worth it If your looking for a unique night light to give your child or a nice gift for a baby!

Origami Owl Living Locket

I also partnered with Susan Edwards, an independent designer from Origami Owl, for this hop. She designed a beautiful necklace for me, and soon after I fell in love with the story of O2 (short for Origami Owl) and how it all got started. 

Bella founded Origami Owl in 2010 when she was 14 years old with a goal to make enough money to buy her first car for her 16 birthday. In the beginning she sold Living Lockets at home parties and events. As word spread about their unique jewelry line, they continually heard from women who wanted to know how they could bring Origami Owl to their family and friends. They were the inspiration behind what would be the future of O2. 
Their Mission?

I also wanted to share with you Susan's story that she shared with me about how she became employed with Origami Owl. 

My name is Susan. I am married to Jeremy and we have 3 great kids. I am

a neonatal nurse by trade but I only work 1 shift a week. Our children are 10,

4 and 3. When our middle child was almost 3, he was diagnosed with autism

and placed in a developmental preschool. I cut back my work schedule to 

accommodate his needs. This was great for him. He has done amazing there

, but it hurt us financially, especially when we added expense of 

weekly therapies. About 9 months later, I learned of Origami Owl. After 

hearing Bella's story and seeing the lockets, I knew I had to be a part of this

amazing journey. I have been so blessed with this company. I am now 

bringing in additional income for our family while working from home during 

the hours that fit my family, I have made some great friends and it's brought 

me out of my "shell" a bit. Origami Owl's mission is to "Be A Force For Good" 

and I am proud to be apart of that!

This is the necklace I received from Susan it came in this cute little box that adds a very nice presentation of the product. It really does tell a story of my life. I told Susan a little about myself and she pieced together this necklace.

PURPLE JEWEL-I was born February 3
SEA TURTLE-Reference to me and my husbands relationship (inside joke) :)
COMPUTER-I am a blogger
BLOW DRYER- I am a hairdresser
I cant wait to buy more charms to fill up my necklace. It is a cute accessory that is personalized to your life and your story! I think these would make great gifts for birthdays, bridal showers, and baby showers.

I have partnered up with to wonderful sponsors for this event Simply Eden & Paradise Bath Boutique.

Simply Eden
Simply Eden originated in Eden, Utah. Their products are handmade and do not contain any harsh chemicals or detergents. The company uses goats milk for its mild cleansing and moisturizing properties. The products are made from recipes formulated with natural ingredients. I got the opportunity to review a few of their products and I was not disappointed!

Coconut Vanilla Body Mousse  Moisturizes skin, extremely light and non-greasy. Smells delicious and tropical. The scent stays on your skin all day!

Peppermint/Lavender Foot Stick- The scent of this stick is amazing! Moisturizes well and heals any callus spots on your feet.

Champagne Pomegranate Goat Milk Soap- Beautiful swirl design in the soap. Described on their site as a sparkling bouquet of grapefruit, lemon & orange and is blended with fresh tones of red fruit and a twist of crushed pomegranate seeds in this lively scent with hints of fresh green foliage to reinforce the sparkling top note. I really like soaps like this, they last a long time and make your skin feel amazing!

Paradise Bath Boutique
Paradise Bath Boutique is located in Lakewood, New Jersey. One fun fact about this company is that they promise to give 10% of all profit to charitable who help struggling families. They offer a large array of scented lotions, body butters & scrubs, bubble baths, shower gels, botanical dead sea salts, hydrating body mists, antibacterial hand soaps & sanitizers, shampoo & conditioners, aromatherapy, and more. They also offer many gift set in all price ranges. I was thrilled when I reviewed their items. I was sent this neat little gift box with a very cute presentation. The box included 1 bubble bath, 1 shower gel, 1 moisturizing body spray, and 1 loofah. This would be a great gift for someone special to you! The scent was Passion Fruit Guava that smelled very good, but not too strong. 

Shower Gel- Suds up very well, and washed off clean without oily residue. Leaves your skin smelling great after your shower!

Bubble Bath- Created nice bubbles, the smell of Passion Fruit Guava made me wake up in the morning with its refreshing scent.

Body Mist- Light smell, moisturizes skin very well. This would be good for ashy skin.
