Upgrade dad’s shaving routine with Philips Norelco this Father;s Day!

So how do you top the first Father’s Day? With a gift as good as last years, of course and helping him upgrade his morning shaving routine! After much thought, I decided to not reinvent the wheel and give my husband the same gift as last year…what, you say??? Well, he loved it so much that I thought what better than to get him another one for the his van pool and desk at work. Especially with baby #2 on the way, I wanted to find the perfect gift to help save him time and get a clean, close shave! What better gift than the Philips Norelco shaver 8800!


My husband works at least 10 hour days and leaves the house around 5 am…so it was logical to get him the Philips Norelco Shaver 8800 for his desk at work. The Philips Norelco shaver 8800 would definitely help him change his morning routine by being able to get more zzz’s and waking up later as it cuts the time he spends shaving. It is worth every penny especially if he gets to spend more time with his family and less time on grooming.

I decided on this shaver because of the JetClean system that not only washes but also lubricates, dries and chargers the shaver. The UltraTrack head has three tracks providing a close shave and up to 60 minutes of shaving time (approximately 20 days)! I especially love that it can be used for a dry or wet shave.

So if you are looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift…look no further! This gift is seriously the best gift for your husband, dad, grandfather or father-in-law in your life! Happy early Father’s Day to all you amazing dads!

Look out for my post Father’s Day review post on the Philips Norelco shaver 8800!



Philips Sonicare PowerUp Review and Giveaway

I just tried the Sonicare PowerUp before bed earlier this week and I am in love. Not sure if it was the PowerUp but I’ve even been sleeping better! I’m a simple gal…never had an electric toothbrush mainly because it seemed so expensive. I didn’t think I needed to splurge $200+ dollars to clean my teeth every day. I thought with just a little elbow grease and I could save the money and brush myself. But I have no excuse now that Philips came out with the PowerUp!


First, the PowerUp is under $20 and worth every penny!  It is so affordable and I am going out and getting one for the whole family. (I’m thinking Christmas gifts too!) By the way, it is such a bonus that it comes with batteries! Second, it has a 2 minute timer…helps me not overbrush when I’m trying to multi-task and great for the kids so they don’t try to cut their brushing short! Last and most important, it removes 2X more plaque and just moving my tongue across my teeth I could seriously feel the difference. I know my dentist is going to be super excited when I visit him next month (fingers crossed for no cavities and healthy gums) and it’s all thanks to the PowerUp!

As a mom, I’m always multi-tasking and thinking about what I need to do next. This morning I was holding the PowerUp in one hand and with the other hand I was picking up toys and putting things away. How great is that! It is no wonder 3 out of 4 surveyed preferred the PowerUp over their manual toothbrush!  It gets even better, one reader will win their very own PowerUp!
