Get Back an Hour Each Week Thanks to Cascade #Giveaway #CascadeShiningReviews

This post was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was compensated for this post, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Just today I was moaning to my husband about not knowing where the time goes and how there is never enough. As I unstacked and stacked the dishwasher for the third time today I threw my hands up in exasperation saying “I don’t know what the answer is, if I sit still for one minute it feels like the to do list multiplies astronomically!” In my moment of self pity I felt like my lack of time was due to my family of 7 and our large size, meaning lots of dishes and lots of laundry, but the truth is no one feels like they have enough time. It’s the one universal truth we can all agree on… there is never enough time to get it all done.

Cascade is my go to dishwasher detergent specifically Cascade Platinum. I have an older dishwasher that is not the best and I notice a big difference in the dishwasher soap I use and no one guarantees me clean dishes like Cascade Platinum. I am a pre-washer, a habit born of rewashing way too many dishes before I discovered Cascade Platinum, so when I found out I could skip the pre-wash and gain an extra hour a week I was ecstatic. I mean one whole extra hour… that is huge I could do something earth shattering like take my time in the shower!!!!

In all seriousness with the amount of dishes I do saving time is a big deal and no pre-washing is awesome, just rinse and stack. My kids can rinse their own dishes and if the dishwasher is empty they even stack so right there I am making my life easier.

A new survey from Cascade Platinum and Marie Claire reveals that nearly all people are doing their dishes incorrectly with 96-percent wasting up to an hour pre-washing their dishes each week – when they should not. In order to get the most optimum clean and shine, it’s important to skip the prewash and use Cascade Platinum. This is because the special enzymes in Cascade Platinum latch onto the leftover food particles, breaking them down so they can wash away – even 24-hour stuck on food. With no food particles on the dishes, the enzymes can’t do their job as well and this can lead to dish issues.

Right now you can get a pack of Cascade Platinum free with this coupon for a $5 mail in rebate. Be sure to follow Cascade on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

WIN IT: One lucky That Chic Mom reader will win a Cascade Prize Pack including:

  • 1 pack of Cascade Platinum
  • 1 bottle of Cascade Rinse Aid
  • Spatula
  • Whisk
  • Wine Stopper
  • Cheese Grater
  • Sugar Sifter

MPG Mondetta Performance Gear for the Active Woman #Giveaway

mpg temertiy hooded top


I am the first to say that workout gear is not real clothing as in it is for working out or doing activities that are… ACTIVE. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t love stylish workout gear. Mondetta Performance Gear or MPG makes some of my favorite active wear pieces and they are definitely pushing the envelope and creating pieces that can be incorporated into your wardrobe in other ways. I am back in my rut of love/hate with working out and lately hate has been winning meaning I haven’t been doing much. Stylish workout gear is one way I encourage myself to get active, let’s be honest it doesn’t do much for the self-esteem to wear a baggy t-shirt and sweatpants. Plus I often go for run/walks in the neighborhood and I do not want to look like a messy slob as I go past all my neighbors houses.


mpg top fall


The new fall line from MPG is gorgeous as always and I fell in love with the Temerity hooded cover up. It’s like a stylish short sleeve hooded sweatshirt. This is perfect for throwing on over your fitted workout shirt or wear it for working out alone. I find it is the perfect weight for fall workouts outside plus it looks super cute with skinny jeans and boots too! I know some women say if they don’t put workout clothes on first thing they never work out. Well how about you put on this cute top with jeans then switch your pants when you actually workout, a stylish compromise! When it is time to workout try the Urban full length pant. This pant offers detailing that makes it look like a legging instead of workout gear like back welt pockets.

MPG outerwear

MPG has some fabulous jackets for fall, all of which are super stylish and for me don’t fall into the workout category but simply qualify as stylish fall fashion! Be sure to check out what Andrea is featuring from MPG over on Momma in Flip Flops, she is rocking it with all of her 5K races lately!

The following is a sponsored campaign through MomDot and Mialisia, all opinions are my own.
mialisia jewelry october


I have always loved fashion with a a bit of an edge, nothing too crazy but I love a great biker jacket and black boots. Finding jewelry to go with this look can be hard as often I feel like everything looks too shiny and fancy. I found the perfect layering chains from Mialisia jewelry to complete my look and could not be happier. Honestly I never would have thought to look at a brand like Mialisia for stylish chains but this brand has way more jewelry options than most people realize. They have shiny chains and matte chains, big chains and small chains and you can mix them all together to create fabulous looks.


mialisia october


In the above look I combined the Stacie versastyle necklace and the Zephra versastyle necklace. I love how they layer so nicely using the versastyle hooks creating a muted but dramatic statement. These necklaces are the perfect addition to my olive and leather motorcycle jacket, just the look I was going for.


mialisia october necklace


The Sicilian necklace is a fun two-toned necklace that combines coconut shell beads with antique silver links. The effect is stunning with the mixed media and is great short or long. I like it with this bold berry colored top for fall as it adds interest and great texture. And if you need some stunning earrings check out the Mialisia Myra earrings, these irregular circles with textured silver add lots of great interest and style to any outfit.

Look Great, See Great and Save Big Plus Designer Sunglasses #Giveaway #SeeMuchMore

The following is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

Eyeglasses are a big deal, a big EXPENSIVE deal. I have worn glasses since I was a kid and over the years my style has evolved quite a bit. Since you wear eyeglasses all day, everyday picking the right pair is so important. If you do not love your eyeglasses you will spend your days feeling insecure and uncomfortable, that’s never a good thing. A great pair of glasses often comes with a hefty price tag and most people can’t afford the big out of pocket expense, that is why good eye insurance is so important.

vsp logo

Over the years I have had several different eye insurance companies and by far the best has always been VSP. Insurance plans like VSP Vision Care cover your comprehensive eye exam and provide you with a frame allowance, as well as fully covered lens options. VSP also provide a preferred pricing on lens enhancements, including progressive lenses, light-reactive lenses, anti-reflective coating, scratch-resistant coating and UV protection all the things you want to make your daily glasses wearing experience the best it can be. I have even used my VSP to cover getting prescription sunglasses, something I could never afford without the help of eye insurance. And if you wold rather use your insurance benefits to cover contacts you can do that too.


vsp sunglasses


The average VSP member saves approximately $320 each year with vision insurance and gets to visit top optometrists and choose from hundreds of eyeglass options. See how much you can save with VSP Vision Care by using the interactive savings calculator on

How to Style Denim for Work Plus a Lee Jeans Giveaway

lee jeans for work

October 3 is Lee National Denim Day and in honor of such an important day I have teamed up with Lee jeans to bring you some great styling tips for wearing denim at work, you know how much I love a great pair of jeans.

Denim at the office isn’t only for comfort. This year more than ever, you will see casual Fridays become an everyday norm and dressed-up denim become a trend. So how do you stay casual while looking professional? Wearing denim to the office can be pulled off with the right pair of Lee jeans and a few finishing touches.

Use these styling tricks to make your next denim ensemble exec-level chic, brought to you by Lee:

1) Dark jeans are a must. Clean, dark denim says classic and sophisticated, while the distressed, boyfriend look can put off a weekend vibe.

2) Don’t underdo your denim. Pair it with your staple work separates: a dressy blouse, cardigan or a blazer – style it just as you would a dress pant or pencil skirt.

3) Not all denim cuts are office-friendly. Opt for clean (not slouchy) style – a straight, skinny, crop, or trouser.

4) Decorate your denim. Any of your favorite accessories will do – a nice pair of heels, colorful skinny belt or statement necklace will make you meeting-ready in minutes.

5) Feeling feminine? Try layering a Lee denim jacket on top of a colorful skirt or dress. Pair it with office-chic counterparts like red lipstick and pearls to polish it off.

So there you have it. With the right pair of Lee jeans and trusty pieces to style it with, you can achieve an office look that’s understated yet confident!

In cohesion with Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, Lee National Denim Day invites participants to go casual for a cause and wear their favorite pair of denim on October 3 in exchange for a $5 donation to help the American Cancer Society finish the fight against breast cancer. This amazing movement has been going strong in workplaces across the country since 1996 and has raised more than $91 million for the fight against breast cancer
