Getting Fit In 2014

kohls-logo (2)

We all make New Year resolutions, me included. But, I rarely follow through with them :/ I am so bad like that! I want to get in shape, I really do, but finding the time and energy is a whole other thing... At the beginning of this week, I ordered the Brazil Butt Lift exercise program. I saw some great reviews on it and thought, why not? So, as soon as that arrives at my doorstep, I will be starting it! Excited!!! So, since I will be working out I did need workout clothing. Kohl's sent me some really comfy yoga pants to review and a pair of cute black shoes! Now maybe I can work out and look cute doing it? That is a long shot.. I received the Marika Magical Balance Butt Booster Performance Pants and Croft & Barrow® Sport Shoes - Women in Black . Like I said, they are super cute and both are really comfy. First I will talk about the Marika Magical Balance Butt Booster Pants. I was not too thrilled with the support that these offered. While they are completely comfortable … [Read more...]

CONGRATS Patricia Wojnar Crowley *Product was received. Opinions are mine. My family absolutely LOVES yogurt. They can't get enough of it especially my husband and oldest boy! Every week, I buy at two 6-8 packs of yogurt, just to get them by for the week! We have always loved Tillamook (the cheeses, yogurt, ice cream etc..) so I was thrilled when I was offered to review Tillamook’s new Farmstyle Greek Yogurt, with my family! Aside from being totally delicious, the new Farmstyle Greek contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, growth hormones, or high fructose corn syrup. The new Farmstyle Greek also features locally sourced fruit and nuts from the Pacific Northwest as well as buttermilk cultures for a less tart taste! And oh is it delicious! The flavors we received were: Cinnamon Hazelnut Farmstyle Greek Yogurt, Coffeehouse Blend Farmstyle Greek Yogurt, Honey Peach Farmstyle Greek Yogurt, Old Fashioned Vanilla Farmstyle Greek Yogurt, Oregon Blueberry … [Read more...]

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Microwave Sterilizer (Giveaway)

CONGRATS TO Brooke Thomas *Product was received. Opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate link. Nothing makes me feel better than knowing my baby has CLEAN bottles to eat out of. No one likes dirty things to eat off of! I use to boil my older sons baby bottles to get them sterilized and clean. For my daughter, I did that too. But now, with this baby, I use the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Microwave Sterilizer. This is super easy to use and sterilizes my baby's bottles in as little as 4 minutes! Why did I not get this sooner??? Now, I am rest assured that my little one has clean bottles, not filmy gross ones! You simply take off the lid, lift up the plastic tray and add 7 oz of water. Put the tray back down, place your bottles, nipples, pacifiers, etc.. inside and put the lid back on. Put it into the microwave for 4 minutes and there you have it! Just be VERY careful when you take it out of the microwave (use oven mittens!) and if you must open it … [Read more...]

Fysiko Eyelash serum Review #Fysikobeauty

PicMonkey Collage

*Product was received. Opinions are mine. I was not born with gorgeous, long and lush lashes. My brothers, on the other hand, were. Sigh. Isn't that ALWAYS the way it goes? I have always used mascara and eye lash tint on my lashes, to make them appear to be long and lush. But, once the makeup is gone, so are the long lashes! Yikes! Now that I have my own kids, thankfully ALL of them have gorgeous and long lashes! Man, they lucked out! I have tried many many many eye lash serums in the past. Most seem to work about the same and yes, my lashes do grow nicely. It just takes a while and DEDICATION. If you want something bad enough, you HAVE to keep at it! Don't give up! I am going to show you some pictures of my eyelashes before using this product and after. The after picture I did use in another post of mine for a mascara post, but it is relevant because it is AFTER I used this serum. So, if you have seen the AFTER picture before on my blog, it is because you HAVE seen … [Read more...]

Quality and Delicious Breakfast Choices for Even the Pickiest Eaters

2014-03-19_1058

*Product was received. Opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate link. Ever since my littlest one has been experimenting with new foods, I have tried to make sure that most everything he puts in his little pie hole, is nutritious to some extent. He gets plenty of fruits (strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, banana, etc) and lots of veggies (beans, peas, carrots steamed, sweet potatoes, etc..), so I am not too worried about him NOT getting enough of the good stuff, because he is constantly eating it! But, sometimes I want a healthy and EASY option for him. I don't have time EVERY day to cut up fruits and veggies for him, so I do like to rely on other healthy options for him. I received a great assortment of foods from Ella’s Kitchen, to try out on my little guy. He really really liked the fruit pouches and packaged treats the best. Could it be possible that your parents were right when they said breakfast was the most important meal of the day?? Turns out they … [Read more...]

Red Carpet Manicure: The world’s first at-home LED gel manicure system (Giveaway)

2014-03-18_1428

CONGRATS TO Amanda Alvarado *Product was received. Opinions are mine. This post contains my affiliate link. I cannot tell you how long I have been wanting to try the gel nails. It has been something that I have been wanting to try out, but just could not find the time to go out and get them. I really wanted to do my own gel nails at home, anyways. Going to a salon, you have the fear of getting infections and I am real big on cleanliness!!! I have priced the at home gel manicure systems in the past and just could not justify buying one for myself. My kids come first and they always need something! Whether it is a new pair of shoes or jeans, that is where my money needed to be, not on my nails. So, when I was contacted to review the Red Carpet Manicure system, I was more than thrilled! Yay! Me and my daughter can finally see what this is all about!!! The Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit comes with everything you need for a professional salon gel manicure in … [Read more...]
