Honeymoon: 15 Years in the Making

Key West Florida

This June Brandon and I will have been together for 16 years (married in November) and we've never been on a real vacation, let alone a honeymoon. When we got married we were both working but barely making enough to live on. Because of all the paperwork and wait time to get married in Michigan, we decided to get married in Kentucky. We decided to do it during Thanksgiving weekend because we both had a long weekend off work and we just took one extra day off (the Wednesday before). We drove down to Kentucky after work on Tuesday, went to the courthouse on Wednesday to get our marriage ... {Keep On Reading}

Introducing That Techie Mom

That Techie Mom

I have decided to branch out Shawn Ann's World a little.  Over the years I have added more and more different topics to Shawn Ann's World getting away from what I wanted Shawn Ann's World to be about.  Even adding in a Mom Tech category that involved posts all about technology; whether that be tech products or how to  and blog related posts. After thinking about it for a while I decided that I would move the Mom Tech category over to a new site, That Techie Mom.  This would allow Shawn Ann's World to continue being my personal site about my family and products we love.  It would also allow ... {Keep On Reading}

Whitening Your Teeth with Smile Brilliant

Whitening Your Teeth with Smile Brilliant - Custom-Fitted Trays

I am coming up on my 40th birthday, yeah, I know. I'm getting old. Although I don't always feel that old, you can see my age in some parts of my body.  Either due to the wrinkles starting to show, my body not being in the shape it used to be, or because of the discoloration of my teeth from many years of smoking and drinking coffee.  Overall the health of my teeth is pretty good, I have no cavities; at least not since the last time I was at a dentist about 8 years ago.  It's the fact that my teeth are no longer as white as they used to be.  I've tried toothpaste with whitening powers in them, ... {Keep On Reading}

Beautiful Jewelry from The Luxury Jewellery Company

Luxury Jewelry

I used to love wearing jewelry, then I had children.  So I stopped wearing it because I was constantly finding myself getting my bracelets and necklaces fixed all the time from Thaddeus pulling on them.  I was just starting to wear jewelry again when I found out I was pregnant with Xavier and stopped wearing them again.  I'm starting to get back into wearing jewelry again, but it is a slow process.  Only a few items I wear all the time and I add other items depending on where I'm going. Did you know that jewelry can be expensive? Especially if you are looking to get luxury jewelry!  But it ... {Keep On Reading}

Getting creative with Kiwi Crate

Kiwi Crate - Valentines Day

Creativity... delivered! A few years ago I was given the opportunity to review Kiwi Crate here on Shawn Ann's World and it was so awesome getting Thaddeus involved in gardening from start to finish. He not only got to plant the seeds, but watch them grow into sprouts and then move them to our garden outside where we were then able to eat the tasty veggies! Valentine's Day is just literally just around the corner. How about this year, let Kiwi Crate help get the family together with fun hands-on projects delivered right to your door step! Kiwi Crate just released a Limited ... {Keep On Reading}

Botanical Splash from Trusted Health Products

Trusted Health Products

I have very, very dry skin. Especially in the winter months. There isn't much that works for me. I can put lotion on directly after a shower and within a few hours it'll be like I never used anything. So when I was contacted by Trusted Health Products to try out their Botanical Splash, I just had to give it a shot. The Ultimate Skin Care Solution The real difference in Botanical Splash™ is that unlike the many skin care products you probably already have on your bathroom shelf, our product is NOT PETROLEUM BASED. It absorbs quickly into your skin and begins feeding the skin cells what they ... {Keep On Reading}

OraMD Breath Spray from Trusted Health Products

Trusted Health Products

I was recently contacted by Trusted Health Products to try some of their 100% Natural products and to give my opinion on them. I received courtesy bottles of the OraMD Breath spray  to try out first. Working outside of the home can be a killer when it comes to oral hygiene, it isn't always easy to brush your teeth when you are away from home for 8+ hours a day. You don't always have access to a place to brush your teeth, even when you have access to a workplace bathroom. So how do you kill bad breath when you are away from home? One way is to use OraMD Breath, the 100% natural formula ... {Keep On Reading}

Unilever Launches New Dry Spray Antiperspirant

Unilever 48 Hour Dry Spray

There has always been many options when it came to deodorant and antiperspirants. You could get solids, gels, and even sprays.  However, there is a new spray out there that is not only a spray but a dry spray.  The best part is they are from Unilever brands like Axe, Dove, and Degree! I was recently approached by Meijer to try the new Dry Spray Antiperspirants from Unilever before they were even available on their shelves. Coming soon to a Meijer near you, and other local retailers, will be the new Dry Spray Antiperspirants that will give you 48-hour odor and wetness protection and ... {Keep On Reading}
