Glade Expressions Line

Glade and Bzzagent asked me to review the new Glade line of the Glade Expressions fragrance mist and oil diffuser.

Here’s a rundown of the fragrances you’re about to invite into your home, courtesy of Glade Expressions®:
Pineapple & Mangosteen – Evoke a tropical paradise with the blend of freshly cut pineapples and hints of tangy mangosteen, creamy coconut and passionflower
Cotton & Italian Mandarin – Open your home with this bright, breezy blend of cotton and sparkling citrus, honeydew and sandalwood*
Lavender & Juniper Berry – Lush lavender blends with fresh juniper berry, eucalyptus and rose to relax the senses and open your home (only available at select retailers)
Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice – A ripe, spicy blend of sweet pears and crisp apple with a dash of cinnamon and clove that warms and invigorates

For my home I chose the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice. I love the fragrance of the apples and spice. It makes my home smell super inviting and warm. It reminds me of orchards we visited growing up. My home is my sanctuary. That is pretty normal. You want to walk into your home and have it smelling fresh, clean and pretty. You need to be able to have products you depend on. Having them blend with your existing decor is important too. You don't want to see cans of air freshener plopped all over nor do you want to see plug-ins in every outlet. That is why I love the new line. The sleek canister's wrapping can be removed to reveal a smooth bottle that fits in with the simplest to most stylish decor. The oil diffuser is pretty and has a nice floral design that is chic meets easy. Hello Lover.

The products are both super easy to use. At first the scent was super strong and really filled the house. As a week as gone by, the scent has faded a lot. I have moved the oil diffuser to a couple different rooms trying out the concept. I have it in the bedroom now and keep the door shut most of the day to shield all of our dogs and baby from sneaking in and causing trouble. With that being said, in a closed bedroom, I would love to have the scent filled room that I had the first couple of days. I loved the wooden look that the mangosteen scent had, and wish that I was able to choose the holder that I wanted with my fragrance, but that is pretty trivial.

Despite that, I do love the scent. I can still smell it and it looks pretty. The mist spray comes out very easily and fills the room with that warm apple that I love.

Go getcha some :) I got mine at Target, but you can get them at Walmart, drug and grocery stores. Let me know what you think!


*I did receive full size products in exchange for this review.

Tiny brain dump

*My son is growing too fast. He is learning something new everyday. He is literally growing up before my very eyes. That saying is not truer than to a mama. He is 14 months old already. Soon he will be 14. *tear*

*I am having Wheat Thins and coffee for breakfast. I know... but it works.

*I made a meal plan for an entire 2 weeks and I really have liked it. I usually only do a week at most. This really seems to make my dinner routine so much less stressful. I just look on the sheet and BAM. Dinner is done. Well, almost.

*I am sick of drama with women. I am not a drama person. I find it petty, childish and frankly, beneath me. Can I say that? I just don't deal with it. I ignore it or remove myself from it. I have a mom in the group I am in who strives off of drama. All she wants to is cause issues. Then when she is done with the issue, she is fine but the damage she does is left strewn behind.

*I need to be as healthy as my Pinterest board looks. I have really slacked off this winter. As much as I despise the hot summers, I think that it actually helps motivate me for weight loss and exercise.

*I am loving bzzagent. I love that I #gotitfree.

*I am lost with why the process for uploading pics has changed and I need to install some new app. Why cant people leave well enough alone? UGH.

*We joined and have had 2 interviews so far. One flake--which we are totally bummed about bc she seemed so great and a slew of new emails to check people out. It is SO NERVE WRACKING. We have NEVER left our son so this is beyond scary. It is necessary though. Baby boy doesnt go to anyone. Even moms in the group that he sees every week. He is very clingy to my husband and me. Well, it is to be expected I suppose since I stay home with him and my husband works from home. He really needs to be socialized without us. So--- we are going to go on dates again and hopefully everything will be ok without us for a couple hours.

Perhaps I will have more time to brain dump again soon. This mommy business takes alot of time ;)
