Places to Eat in Boise: PieHole Review

Monday, September 29, 2014

Are you looking for somewhere unusual to eat? Are you in the mood for pizza? If the answer is yes, then you should check out the PieHole in  Boise. The PieHole offers specialty pizzas such as Potato and Bacon, BBQ Pulled Pork and Thai Chicken. The Potato and Bacon sounds extremely weird, but it is amazing! You can try the Pizza by the slice or as a whole. We usually get a slice or two. I highly recommend giving it a whirl. Please note that they do not have cups for fountain water so if you want water with your pizza, you will need to buy a bottled water or bring your own water.

Things to Do in Boise: Idaho Ice World

Thursday, September 18, 2014

For date night, my husband and I went to Idaho Ice World. Idaho Ice World has two ice skating rinks, an arcade and food court. We went on a Friday night during the public skating times, and were surprise at that there were only about ten or so other people on the ice. It was nice to skate without a huge crowd and we had a good time. I am not an expert ice skater like my husband, nor am I even remotely comfortable on the ice, but we rented a plastic walker to help me learn to skate and get comfortable on the ice. My husband gave me tips and showed me how to skate. Gradually, I became more accustomed to ice skating and had a lot of fun. The walker was well worth the price.  Idaho Ice World can be fun for date night or even as a family activity. I encourage you to check it out and have some fun!

Things to Do in Boise: Boise State Capitol

Thursday, September 11, 2014

On Labor Day, we were able to visit Boise State Capitol. It was a fun and free activity. We walked in and grabbed a self-tour guide. The capitol was welcoming to visitors and fairly empty. The capitol is small compared to others, but has some interesting features and highlights. Highlights of the capitol include a carved wooden statue of George Washington painted in gold by Charles Ostner, the rotunda, replica of the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the senate wing, the house wing and a replica of the Liberty Bell in front of the capitol. We did a short walk through since I had my little one with me, but I would say you could tour the capitol on your own within an hour or two. The capitol grounds also have picnic tables so that you can enjoy a picnic on the grounds before or after your tour. To learn more about the capital, go here.

Skintimate Mandarin Burst Review

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

This month Skintimate sent me Mandarin Burst Shave Gel to review through Crowdtap. I have not used Skintimate since I was a teenager and was pleasantly surprised at how much easier it was to use than bar soap. I placed some gel on my legs, rubbed it in and was able to recognize the spots that needed shaving. This helped prevent me from missing spots and helped to keep my skin smooth. It also did not require a whole lot of gel to create foam. I think this is a definite must for preteen and teen girls learning to shave their legs.

Besides Mandarin Burst scent, Skintimate also offers: Raspberry Rain, Strawberry Tangerine Twist, Luscious Kiwi Splash, Tropical Splash, Skin Therapy for Dry Skin and Moisturizing Cream Shaves.

I would recommend that if you use a scented shave gel that you would coordinate it with your shampoos, soaps and lotions
