Twinkle in your eye!

Everyone has heard the term 'Twinkle in your eye' but Cover Girl has redefined what this means for women. Cover Girl has introduced a new product called Exact Eyelights Mascara that, they say, brightens your eyes 4x. Exact Eyelights has light-reflecting metallics and a hint of tint to bring out your blues, browns, hazels and greens according to their website.

Our first thought was - this I have to see (pun intended). So we picked up a few tubes and a few of the women in the office tried it and, sure enough, the difference was striking. We have never seen eyes so bright. The next time you need to replace your mascara check out this product. It is truly revolutionary - in our eyes (couldn't resist).

Something New

Starting yesterday Wal-Mart began selling the iPhone. While the iPhone and Wal-Mart are certainly not new products or companies it is unique for a store like Wal-Mart to sell a product like the iPhone. If you haven't been able to check out an iPhone in person head over to Wal-Mart and see one. They are very cool!

Good clean fun!

It's a fact - most kids don't like to take baths and showers. They like playing in the tub but the cleaning part can be a chore. Kimberly Clark - the maker of Huggies - has come out with a line of cleaning products for kids called Huggies Cleanteam. The product line includes a Bubbly Moisturizing Bath Wash, Flushable Moist Wipes, Easy to Use Hand Soap, Disposable Cleansing Cloths, Extra Conditioning Shampoo and more.

Each of the items is associated with a fun cartoon character like Billy Buffalo on the Bath Wash, Sammy Snake on the Shampoo and Freddy Flamingo on the Flushable Moist Wipes. Each of the characters makes cleaning fun. I'm waiting for some of these companies to come out with cartoon characters on products for adults - now those I would buy! Actually it's not so crazy - in Japan, adults can be seen wearing Hello Kitty backpacks and writing with Hello Kitty pens.

Click here to find out more about Huggies Cleanteam products.

Get Steamed!

If you are like many of us you are eating out a lot less lately. Not only does it save you money but it also tends to be better for you. So the big question is - what to make! There are plenty of dishes you can make from scratch on days where you have plenty of time but on the days where you are in a rush the options go down considerably.

We found a line of frozen dinners that can be heated up in the microwave in 10 minutes that are perfect for two - Birdseye Steamfresh Meals. There are six varieties available - Asian Style Chicken Vegetable Medley, Shrimp Alfredo, Grilled Chicken in Roasted Garlic Sauce, Shrimp Pasta Primavera, Sweet and Sour Chicken and Grilled Chicken Marinara. All the meals are meant for two so if you have more mouths to feed you can make multiple bags or serve different things to certain family members which often happens in our house anyway.

Bag one of these!

If you kitchen and pantry are like mine you have plastic bags stuffed all over the place. You can never find one when you need one and when you don't need one they seem to be spilling out everywhere.

Oxo - the kitchen gadget company - has come up with a solution. A stainless-steel solution at that! Their new Good Grips Bag Holder as seen in the photo gives you a convenient place to store plastic bags and find them when you need them. Simply stuff bags in the top and pull them out the sides. There is a removable divider that you can use to keep two different sizes separated. Now that's smart!

You can hang the Oxo Bag Holder on your pantry door or store it in a drawer or on a shelf. It holds about 50 plastic bags. It's great for keeping plastic bags out of reach of children too! The cost? About $20.

Click here to find out more about the Oxo Bag Holder.

While we don't have samples available for you to try click here to have a chance to win one! StartSampling will randomly select one lucky person to win one of these bag holders. It could be you!

Tasty Little Cookies!

You have probably heard of Kashi and the good-for-you cookies they make. Did you know that they now make cookies too? Neither did we - until we found out about TLC Cookies. The TLC doesn't stand for 'tender loving care' like you might think - it stands for 'tasty little cookies'. Clever and yummy!

Kashi's TLC Cookies combine their signature Seven Whole Grain Blend with ingredients such as peanuts, raisins, sunflower seeds, dark chocolate, walnuts, cranberries, flax seeds and coconut. There are three varieties - Happy Trail Mix, Oatmeal Dark Chocolate and Oatmeal Raisin Flax. All are delicious, chewy and have a homemade taste - we've tried them all and they are very good!

You might want to hide these from the kids - they will plow through a bag in no time. Give them the Chips Ahoy cookies you have in the pantry instead!
