Howl-O-Ween Giveaway Hop: Thirty-One Gifts with Divya Johnson

Prize is sponsored by Divya Johnson from Any opinions expressed are my own. Pictures used by permission.


October, fall is in the air, fall decor and halloween decorations are popping up around the neighborhood, everything else turns pink for breast cancer awareness, and some start thinking about fall cleaning.  If you’re like me fall cleaning also includes organizing.  Thirty-One makes it easy to organize just about anything in fun designs and options in all sizes.

My Thirty-One representative is Divya Johnson and she is amazing.  I’ve been a customer of hers for a couple years now.  She didn’t get to the level she has achieved with Thirty-One by being lax.  No she is all about her customers and loves Thirty-One.

Before Divya, I thought Thirty-One was a little to expensive for my needs. But Divya has great suggestions, fantastic offers, and cash and carry items to help you to get what you really want.  I really dislike having parties, mostly because I feel like very few people participate in my parties so I gave up.  But Divya has this awesome Hostess of the Month program that allowed me to make a lot of progress towards my home organization goals and have a successful party.  My party hit $800 with her!  I’ve never had a party for anything hit $800!  Because of that I was able to get a ton of stuff for free or half price to start organizing my bathroom closet.

I’m so excited about the October customer specials.  For the month of October when you spend $35 you can get 1 medium utility tote for $15 or 2 medium utility totes for $20!  I’m definitely going for the 2.  I still have sheets and blankets in my bathroom closet that need organized!  Just look at the fun holiday designs too!  I’m drawn to shiny, metallic, and glittery things so the Frosted Gold Metallic or Snowy Slopes is speaking to me!  Which one would you choose?


The holidays will be here before we know it.  Divya has great ideas for holiday gifts.  Seriously, she is so creative. The best way to get creative gift giving ideas, be the first to know about sales, and more is to join Divya’s Thirty-One facebook page.  She also does fun events like Divya’s 31 Survivor, Hostess of the month, and more giving lots of opportunity to get a lot of Thirty-One products!

Divya’s success with Thirty-One allows her to give back to the community from Chemo Care Bags & Easter Baskets for kids for a local hospital to Teacher & Customer Appreciation in her VIP group

GLEE Gum 100% Natural Halloween Treats

I received the below mentioned products at no cost in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.


Handing out treats for trick or treat this year?  Still at a loss for what to hand out?  GLEE Gum has some tasty, 100% natural candies that will make both parents and kids happy!

The fun GLEE Gum gum pops come in a 15 counts bag with 3 different flavors: Sweet Strawberry, Crisp Green Apple, and Juicy Orange.  These pops are yummy and colorful.

GLEE Gum of course has lots of flavors of gum too.  Their gum has no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no preservatives and non-GMO certified. The classic GLEE gum is sweetened with fair-trade cane sugar and brown rice syrup. The sugar-free gum varieties are sweetened with 100% xylitol.

I really enjoyed the sugar-free bubble gum flavor.  There are 3 other sugar-free flavors and lots of flavor in the classic variety. You can even buy boxes with mini-packs of gum with 80 mini boxes in to hand out for trick or treat or whatever you might want.

Check out the items on Glee Gum and tell me what sounds good to you?  What would you like to get in your trick or treat bag?

Keep Your Trick or Treater Safe with These Tips

I received items at no cost from Oriental Trading to help facilitate this post. No other compensation has been received. Any opinions expressed are my own. 

My two oldest boys are teens. They are at the stage where they’re too cool to go trick or treating with mom and dad but still want to go trick or treating. This year, as they have the past couple years, they’re going trick or treating with groups of friends.  That doesn’t mean I don’t still worry about them.

My husband and I will be taking our 2 youngest children and my 3 nieces trick or treating with us.  Keeping an eye on 5 little ones in the dark always has be in hyper helicopter mom mode too. So how do I keep my kids safe and help hubby and I keep track of 5 little ones? Here’s my tips:


For the teens:

  1.  Know who they will be trick or treating with and where
  2.  Have them check in via cell phone.  Send a picture of where they are at when they check in.
  3.  Identify a pick up spot and time.
  4.  If not wearing light colored costumes have reflective or glow-in-the dark accessories like these from Oriental Trading:

5.  Give them a flashlight like the mini one from Oriental Trading above. They can wear it around their neck to help them on poorly lit steps, sidewalks, and road ways.

6.  Review safety rules like only going to familiar areas, avoid places they are not comfortable with, stay with the group.  Remind them about checking candy before eating. If anything is open or looks tampered with throw it away.  Any strange looking candies show to an adult first.


For the Little ones:

  1.  Have them wear glow-in-the dark or reflective accessories that match such a glow in the dark bracelet on the right arm in the same color.  It helps just to keep track of 5 glowing orange bracelets when there are a cluster of kids climbing up steps to get candy.
  2.  Wait for each member of the party. Make sure after each house if you have 7 in your party you still have 7. It’s easy for little ones to get disoriented with so many costumes, unfamiliar faces, and houses.
  3.  When it’s my husband and I one of us usually stay at the front of the group while the other stays behind the group to make sure if little ones are slowing down or getting tired they don’t get separated.
  4.   When you get home, check candies and throw out any that look opened or tampered with.
  5.   Remove any candies that might not be safe for toddlers, small children, or if your child has allergies. Things such as gum, jaw breakers, and hard candies, can be a safety hazard for little ones.

If you’re handing out treats consider having a teal pumpkin stash.  If you’re not familiar with the idea of the teal pumpkin, it’s a worth while to find out.  Displaying a teal pumpkin on your porch lets people know that you have Halloween handout that are safe for kids with allergies.  This can be things like toys, stickers,  bottled water, pencils, etc.  People will either paint a pumpkin teal or even just hang a paper with a picture of a teal pumpkin letting people know they have allergen free treats.

I got these super cute glow in the dark skeleton crawlers. You throw them against a door or wall and they slowly crawl they’re way down the door.

What tips do you have for a safe trick or treat?
