Time for Skin Care #EclosBeauty

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of éclos Skin Care for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am about ready to turn 34 years old...but honestly at first glance I look like I'm a teenager.  It wasn't anything I was ever real happy about!!  But now that I am getting older I do kinda get a kick out of people thinking I am younger than I am.  Baby faces run strong in our family!!

Well, with older age comes the realization that I need to start doing things to take care of my face.  When I heard about eclos Skin Careéclos Skin Care and started reading about it I was actually intrigued.  Here is what I have learned...éclos features Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin.


I love how unique this stem cells??  Sounds so intriguing to me!  I definitely would love to try this out for myself and see how I like it and what kind of results I see.  The sun, laugh lines and just pure age are starting to show up on my face and I am not loving it!

I will keep you up to date with the results of this product if I do in fact get to try it out.  What products do you love?  Do you swear by any anti-aging products?  If you don't have anything yet, I would suggest trying eclos Skin Care...sounds good to me!

Link Up Party...

Yes it is time for our weekly linky party.  But Heidi is our linky party gal and she is enjoying herself at Girls Camp with a bunch of teenage girls.  And we didn't plan too far ahead and she is not in a place where she can send me directions so we are going to have to skip our linky party for this week.  Sorry we weren't thinking ahead.  If I knew how to do it I would but I don't and I don't know her passwords.  But please make sure to come back next week and we Promise we will have our party up and running. 

And we are enjoying our summer so far.  In Utah the weather has been amazing (remember I grew up in Vegas so high 90s is nothing).  We are loving the time we are spending with our kids having fun and making memories.  We hope your summer is going great so far too.  We hope you are taking time each day to spend more time with your kids having fun.  We definitely have never regretted spending more time with our kids instead of doing our to-do list.  To-do lists can wait but kids grow up whether we want them to or not.

Enjoying the Summer with our kids...

This is a post we have been contemplating about for the past few weeks. 

I absolutely LOVE summertime.  I love the long days, warm weather and the fact that my kids are home with me all day.  I love having no real schedule to adhere to and deciding each day what fun things we will do that day. 

This upcoming school year my oldest will enter the 1st grade.  This means he will be gone all day long.  While I love watching my kids grow, I am also so sad that my boy will be at school for most of the day.  I truly miss those days when I had all my kids home with me all day.  And this upcoming year is just the beginning of having my kids gone all day at school.  So this summer in particular I am really wanting to enjoy my kids. 

With that being said we have decided that for the summer, {Junk in their Trunk} will post only occasionally, instead of the normal 5x a week like we have been doing for the past year.  Instead of worrying about what to post the next day, we want to be able to enjoy our time with our children. 
Now this doesn't mean we are disappearing forever.  We will still host our weekly Link Up Parties.  We will also still post throughout the summer.  It just won't be a scheduled thing everyday anymore.  It might be once a week or a few times a week.  It just depends. 

We again want to thank you all for all your wonderful support throughout the last year.  We have loved our readers and have loved how supportive you guys have been to us.

Bloggerversary Finale!!

We hope you have been enjoying our week of giveaways and that you have taken the time to enter and to support our wonderful and generous friends who have donated items or services.  Please make sure you visit their sites if you haven't already!

Today is FRIDAY, school is out officially for us here in Vegas, and it is the last day of our bloggerversary week of giveaways!!
We have an awesome childhood friend that we all have some great memories of from back in the day.  His name is Chris and he has done pretty well for himself over time as he now owns a day spa here in town.
"Massage Nirvana is a full-service day and medi spa providing its guests with relaxing, therapeutic massages and skin care services to refresh, soothe, and reinvigorate your body and mind. Our medi spa services include botox, chemical peels, facials, microdermabrasion, fillers and waxing. We invite you to come treat yourself or someone special in our calm, spacious & comfortable oasis. We offer luxurious amenities to compliment your spa experience including shower facilities, lockers, dry sauna and towel & robe service. Our establishment serves to take you away from the hectic worries of the average day by pampering the most important person, you. Not because you need deserve it."

Now Tiffany and I have both had the privilege of experiencing this amazing day spa!  My husband surprised me with a massage and facial for my birthday a couple years was magical!  I seriously didn't think I was going to be able to put my mommy worries aside and relax, but you can't help but relax and enjoy the pampering...the environment, the soothing music, the amenities...everything is top notch!

Here is what Tiffany has to say about it...
I can personally say from experience that a massage at Massage Nirvana is an experience you’ll never forget.  I’ve been multiple times and each time I literally feel like I’m stepping into a piece of luxurious heaven.  It blows other spas away with its beautiful décor, it’s quiet, peaceful atmosphere and with staff that is out of this world good at what they do!  The wide variety of services offered was also a plus to me.  In my own opinion, this is the best massage spa I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to many.  I was so, so excited when Massage Nirvana agreed to do a giveaway for us so that I could share this amazing experience with one of our faithful readers! 

Chris is graciously offering one of our readers a 50 Min Therapeutic Massage with Peppermint Foot Scrub. Retail value: $98.00
Wow that is amazing...wish I could win!!  =)
Obviously this is a local spa here in Las Vegas but the giveaway is open to anyone who would be willing to travel to Las Vegas and redeem it!

Wanna win??
Leave a separate comment for EACH thing you do!
1-Visit Massage Nirvana's wesbite and tell us what service appeals to you the most.
2-Leave us a comment on facebook, any comment will do!!
3-Last chance to tell friends about our week of giveaways...the chances are good on all of them so bring some more friends over our way!!

Bloggerversary Giveaway #4

If you haven't already entered any of our giveaways go here, here and here to enter our first 3 giveaways of the week.

Today we have our wonderful, creative & beautiful cousin Anna as part of our giveaway.  Here is a little about Anna...
     My name is Anna Trevino and I LOVE being an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics.  I started this business about 7 years ago really to get my own make up at a discount.  Now, years later it provides some extra income for my family and I have made some amazing friendships with customers and fellow consultants.  Recently, I have really started to work my business more.  As an Independent Beauty Consultant, I am my own boss.  I decide when I want to work and for how long; it fits into my already busy life. 
     I live in Las Vegas with my husband of almost 6 years and our two year old daughter.  I work full time and I fit Mary Kay into any cracks that are left.  I really try to dedicate two days a week to Mary Kay.  I love our skin care products; they really are a Miracle Set.  Our products are constantly being updated by our company and meet very high standards.  Some of our skin care products, which are really Mary Kay’s powerhouse, have the Good Housekeeping seal of approval.  Many ladies love our products as soon as they try them, which helps make my job easy.  Our Satin Hands is one of our most famous products along with our Oil Free Eye MakeUp Remover. 
     I love the chance that I get to make people feel pampered and beautiful!  I love to do facial parties; with you and two friends you could receive free product and have some fun time with your friends.  We can do those parties at your house or my house, if you are local or online if you are not.   You can order 24 hours a day at my website: where you will also find other contact information for me.  I would love to speak to you about skin care and answer any questions that you may have.  I would also love to chat with you if you think that something like Mary Kay could be right for you and your family, I am always trying to practice sharing the Mary Kay opportunity and would love to give you a free lipstick or lip gloss for being willing to let me practice.  If you do not already have a Mary Kay Consultant I would love to add you to my mailing list, where you will receive four of our Look Books each year that have our products in it along with the newest trends for the upcoming season.   
     I love my cousins and I am so THANKFUL to them for this opportunity (I am so addicted to Junk In Their Trunk), I can’t wait to give out a $50.00 shopping spree on my website!!
YES, you read that right...she is giving away a $50 gift certificate to MARY KAY!

1st Bloggerversary...

 Our little {Junk in their Trunk} is officially 1 years old. 

It's crazy to think that 1 year ago we were a brand new blog with probably 20 followers (all of which included us and maybe a few other family members:). 

We remember being so giddy when we reached our first 100 followers and LIKES on facebook. 

We remember the first time our little blog got featured.  I can still remember Heidi calling me to tell me that we had been featured on Tater Tots and Jello.  We couldn't stop smiling all day. 

We remember all the amazing comments that you are readers have left us.  We love reading them. 

We remember our first linky party and being scared that no one was going to link up. 

We remember our simple post on using foil instead of dryer sheets and watching in amazement as it went crazy on pinterest.  In fact as to date that simple post has had almost 100,000 views.  CRAZY:)

Its been an amazing year.  We couldn't have done it without you guys.  Every success and milestone we have achieved has been because of our amazing readers.  We owe everything to you guys. 

Because you guys have been so amazing we thought we would CELEBRATE our BLOGGERVERSARY with a week of fun giveaways.  

To start out our week of giveaways we are first giving away a set of 12 PEWTER DAISY CUT MASON JAR LIDS. 

These lids are so fun and just scream SUMMER to me.  I gathered a few pictures I found on Pinterest that showcase the cute lids.  They would be a great addition to any party, BBQ or just social gathering you might have planned this summer.  Add a cute striped straw and you just took your party up a notch. 

To enter to win these cute mason jar lids (mason jars not included) do any or all of the following.  Be sure to leave a comment for each thing you do. 

---Like us on facebook

---Follow us on google reader

---Tell your friends about our giveaway either through facebook, twitter, email, text, etc...

Thanks again for being so supportive of our little ol blog.  And be sure to come back each day this week to see our other fun and amazing giveaways.

Summer's Here: Newport Beach Vacation

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Newport Beach for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

For some of you, school is out already!  Here in Vegas we have 2 weeks left.  But either way, summer is definitely on the brain and the kids are READY!  I don't know about you, but I have been looking on Pinterest and all over the internet trying to figure out what we will do this summer!  Lots of crafts, fun things to do but most of all I want to plan a FUN and RELAXING family vacation!!

When I heard about Newport Beach and all the family friendly activities and amenities they offer I was intrigued. And right now the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach hotel is offering an amazing family deal!  Buy one room at full price, receive a connecting room for kids 18 and under at 50% off!!  The Hyatt Regency Newport Beach is a resort-style bayside destination on 26 acres and boasts 3-pools and whirlpools, shuffle board, ping pong, a 9-hole , par-3 golf course.  Call 800-233-1234 and mention the Family Plan to book today!

Here is a quick video to learn and see a little more about this fabulous destination

Go check out their website Newport Beach and look at all their kids summer camp options!  They offer activities from  sailing to surfing to Star Wars and Harry Potter, all for ages 3 and up.  I know my boys would go crazy over the Star Wars and Harry Potter...awesome.  You won't find that just anywhere!

I don't know about any of you, but my family could really use this vacation...what about you??  Any fun trips planned for the summer?  If so, where??  I would love some ideas!!  =)
