Sneaker LAB Premium Shoe Care Kit: review and giveaway!

Sneaker LAB
When you have a gazillion children, like I do (please, love my drama, don’t hate on it) you’re always eager to find quicker and easier ways of doing things. One such thing has been the saving grace of Sneaker LAB – an innovative premium shoe care product that is helping me keep my teen (and tots) sneakers looking fresher for longer. Yes, it’s possible! Let me show you how (and give you a shoe care kit to try out for yourself!)

S1Step 1:
After using a Michael Jackson face mask to protect my nostrils as I unearthed some of his dirtiest sneakers from under his bed, I used the Premium Brush, on Kyles favorite pair of kicks, to brush away any loose dirt. I then generously sprayed on the Sneaker Cleaner. This non-soap, water based solution is 100% biodegradable (you’re welcome, Earth) and you can even use it on your suede or nubuck shoes.

S2Step 2:
Because my child does not believe in doing things moderately, I needed to use the Premium Brush again, to scrub those heavy dirty areas. You can dip the brush into some water, if you need help getting those stains out. In this pic, I tried the Premium Brush on his suede Adidas and I can confidently say that the sturdy bristles are soft enough to care for your suede’s but tough enough to scrub out those stubborn marks. A bit like me, I would say.

S4Step 3:
Using a microfiber cloth, I gave the sneakers a good wipe down and allowed it to air dry. Once it was sufficiently clean and dry, I sprayed a good dose of the Sneaker Protector onto the entirety of the shoe. The Sneaker Protector is a water-based treatment that acts as an invisible protective barrier. This is especially helpful when using it on newer sneakers, since it helps to keep it looking newer and cleaner for longer.

S3Step 4:
Once this was done, I applied a large amount of Odor Protector to make those sneakers smell as fresh as a daisy. I love that this product is literally the Batman to my teenagers bacteria-causing-odor related shoe problems. Amazeballs.

S6The result: Excellent! And I didn’t break my back while doing it! You guys, Sneaker LAB is a product after my own heart. They even have Premium Sneaker Wipes – beautifully thick wet wipes of sorts, designed to clean your sneakers AND protect it! Yep, these babies are filled with Sneaker Cleaner solution, which helps to condition and protect shoes. They worked wonderfully on Curly’s little sneakers and on mama’s favorite suede heels. (Not that I’ve been wearing them lately, because: swollen preggy feet).

S7All in all, Sneaker LAB has totally impressed me and my spreadsheet brain. I LOVE that the company cares about the environment too and that all of their products are natural and do not contain nasty chemicals but rather use pro-bacterial technology that is safe for the environment. Score! You can use any of these products on canvas, leather, suede and nubuck. Check out the Sneaker LAB website for more info.

Books that made me appreciate life

appreciate lifeWhenever my birthday comes around, I find myself valuing the gift of life, love and family. We are so blessed! All of us. Yes, even without Kim Kardashian hair. I’ve been enjoying a few amazing reads from Christian Art Media, that made me appreciate life even more. These books helped me to self reflect, clear my head space (which is usually difficult if you have a spreadsheet brain) and realign my thoughts. They say you are what you think. It’s the TRUTH! I’ve found that when I focus my thoughts on that which is good, my mood is instantly lifted, my goals become clearer and I am able to face challenges with a smile on my face! So, to say happy birthday to me, I’d like to give some of these amazing books to one reader. But first, more on the books: (more…)

Books that help you keep your marriage lit

keep your marriage litYes, I referenced the word “lit” in my heading.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been married for, when February comes around you’re kinda hoping that something special will go down on the 14th. Fire! Explosions! Dynamite! Okay, calm down, maybe not fire. I mean, with all the logistics we need to deal with – and by logistics, I mean children – getting any sort of “marital burning” going on comes with its own challenges. So I’d settle for a small flame, even. But the beautiful thing about marriage is that you have your whole lives together to get (and keep) those sparks flying. It is with this in mind that I pulled out these 3 great reads for relationship month. And yes, I’m giving some away, in case you’d want to, you know, keep your marriage lit, and stuff. The 14th of February is just one day. And I’d like to have my marriage around a bit longer than that (try: forever). How about you? (more…)
