Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetics Review & Giveaway

Links to this post

When searching for new cosmetics and skin care products, I've come to a point in my life where I look for certain being that the products are relevant to my skin type. Yes, I admit to getting older and the signs of aging are beginning to show on my face. Although I do not have any deep set wrinkles, I do have fine lines here and there. Another important attribute for cosmetics products, is that the company offer products made with natural ingredients. Finally, the cosmetics products I choose must be affordable.

Giani Granite Review

Links to this post

Are your kitchen or bathroom counter tops outdated? My counter tops were very outdated, they were probably brand new in the 1970's. 

When I had the opportunity to review Giani Granite Paint for Counter tops, I was really excited, but a little nervous. I definitely wanted an updated kitchen, but was worried that the process would be too complex and that I would somehow mess it up.

How Do You Pop Popcorn?

Links to this post
My family and I are definitely popcorn lovers. We have resorted to buying microwave popcorn, which ends up being a little expensive at times, especially since we like to stay stocked up!

As a kid, I remember the days of making popcorn on the stove top, and how delicious it smelled and tasted. Now, you can get that great popcorn taste again, with a whirley pop popcorn popper. Who doesn't love the awesome taste of movie theater popcorn? I know I do! With the whirley pop popcorn popper, you can get that great taste without leaving the comfort of your own home and without the cost of going out to the movies. The Whirley Pop Shop offers a hand-cranked stove top popcorn popper, in red or stainless steel. Both are sure to be a hit in your household and both let the entire family in on the fun. 

In addition to selling the Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper, The Whirley Pop Shop offers various popcorn seasoning, popcorn oils, reusable and disposable popcorn containers and gift ideas for many different occasions, as well as gift certificates for that special popcorn lover in your life!

Visit the Whirley Pop Pop Shop website for more information or to purchase your own popcorn popper.

Soda Sparkle Review & Giveaway!

Links to this post
I don't know how things are in everyone else's home, but in mine, I try to be as frugal as I can, within reason. I cut any kind of soft drink out of my diet years ago, but the rest of my family is pretty much addicted to soda and insists that we have the refrigerator stocked at all times.

When I heard about a product called Soda Sparkle, I knew I had to try it, so I offered to review it and see if my family would approve of homemade soda. At first, everyone was a little hesitant, but agreed to give it a chance. 

So, my family of soda experts surrounded the Soda Sparkle like we were about to conduct an important science experiment. The process was quick and super easy and everyone agreed that the Soda Sparkle soda was just as tasty as the name brand sodas. Soda Sparkle was a hit!

90 Day Challenge Update

Links to this post

Back in November, I decided to participate in a 90 day weight loss challenge, using a product from Creative Bio Science. I chose the Rasberry Keytone 1234, for many reasons, but most importantly because of the possibility of an increase in metabolism and energy. I lack both of these things, so this was a plus for me!

Well, as you can see, my 90 Day Challenge has turned into a bit longer than 90 days. The holidays were not a great time for me, and I slacked off for the most part. If you haven't read my first post, I had my thyroid removed in 2009, due to thyroid cancer and now suffer from Hypothyroidism. There are lots of symptoms that go along with this annoying condition, one being depression. So without getting into that too much, my weight loss motivation did not survive the holidays! But, I'm back and ready to give this a go and lose some of this unwanted weight.

I have been taking the Rasberry Keytone 1234, daily for the past 3 weeks, and I'm happy to report that I have lost 5 pounds. Granted, it may not seem like much to some, but to me it's a great start! 

I plan to continue my 90 Day Challenge, fully committed. Any weight loss for me is wonderful at this point and my energy level has definitely increased while using the Rasberry Keytone 1234. 

Until next time...Feel free to visit the Life Fit Store and use this coupon code for a special discount: ROSE

Who doesn't love to smell great? I know I do, so when I was given the opportunity to review a gift set from Calgon, I couldn't wait! I received The Sensual Collection Mist Sampler, which contained a set of three different fragrances. The sampler set was the perfect way to try the fragrances without spending a bundle on a bottle of something you may not care for, and at around $5.00 for this set, you can't go wrong!

Yoga Paws Review!

Yoga Paws is a completely revolutionary idea, started by mother and daughter team, Gail and Jamie Getzwiller. The idea is that yoga can be practiced anywhere, whether at home, in the office or while travelling away from home. There is no longer a need for a yoga mat, because the mat is attached to your hands and feet.

UnReal Candy Review!

Links to this post

The idea for Unreal Candy started with a 13 year old boy who came home from trick-or-treating with a bag of candy, only to discover the next morning that his Father had confiscated most of it. Upset at his loss, this boy decided to do his own research to prove to his Father that the candy he had so much fun collecting wasn't really all that bad. Much to his surprise, he found that his Father was right, and a majority of the candy in question was filled with ingredients such as hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors and preservatives, but not to make the products taste good...they were there to make them cheaper to produce.

No nonsense tights and leggings!

Links to this post

This post brought to you by No nonsense. All opinions are 100% mine.


No nonsense is a well known brand, offering a wide variety of tights and leggings for any style. I received two No nonsense products for review and put together two very simple, yet stylish outfits for my teenage daughters. 


My oldest daughter, Amanda, wore the black lace tights with a skirt and sweater. The tights were super cute and gave her outfit just the right touch of distinction without over-powering the outfit.





My second review product from No nonsense, was a pair of purple corduroy leggings. These leggings are perfect for the winter weather. My daughter, Alannah, paired the leggings with a white belted blouse and black flats. I love this outfit, because it's a nice change from her normal jeans and t-shirt.


No nonsense tights and leggings are completely affordable and found at most food and drug stores, as well as most mass retail stores. 




No nonsense has recently teamed up with Fashion Expert, Jill Martin. As a style expert, and new Brand Ambassador, Jill will be assisting No nonsense in educating women on how to wear the brand's new colorful and high impact tights and leggings, through several exciting initiatives, such as  online clips, Twitter and Facebook. Jill Martin will be featuring fashion tips and more on the No nonsense Twitter and Facebook sites as an active source of advice for the No nonsense fans.

WaxVac Review & Giveaway!!

I received the WaxVac for review, and this was one product that I was certainly anxious to try. As disgusting as it may be, my two sons have always had an abundance of ear wax, each in one ear. We have had to have their ears flushed at the doctor's office, and I'm constantly cleaning out their ears with cotton swabs. I couldn't wait to try the WaxVac, as see if it would be effective in my home.

Farm Rich Review & Giveaway!!

Links to this post
Farm Rich products have always been a favorite in my house, so when I had the opportunity to review Farm Rich products, I was super excited!

My personal favorite is the Philly Cheese Steak snacks. The mixture of the savory steak, grilled onions and white American cheese excites my taste buds! I love a great Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, and these little snacks are the perfect way to get the great taste I love, but in small portion and a convenient package. 

The next Farm Rich product that I chose, was the Pizza Slices. I have four children and all of them are huge pizza fans! These little slices of heaven are the perfect sized snack. I can heat up just what we need for each child and not waste an entire pizza. Each slice is made with 100 % real mozzarella cheese, no imitation cheese! Awesome!

Off-Season Buys You Can't Afford to Miss

Links to this post

Are you one of those shoppers that lives for a sale? Do you voraciously rip apart your Sunday paper for coupons and ad circulars that show items heavily discounted?

Congratulations to you if you are a smart shopper. Not only do you save lots of money, but you have learned the art of frugality. There is such a thing about being frugal without being cheap. It has to do with buying your items out of season.

These types of sales are found a lot when it comes to fashions, both male and female. A woman looking for that perfect power suit for work might find the best bargains for these suits in late winter or early spring, when collections of suits may go on sale in anticipation for summer and lighter clothing. If a man wants to stock up on sweaters for winter, the best time to look for these is spring and summer when sale prices might be at their best.

New Year's Soup!

Links to this post

Start the New Year off right with this yummy New Year's Soup!

Tradition says that you should eat black-eyed peas for luck and collard greens for money...this soup has both! Not to mention that it's healthy and delicious! 


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic ~ crushed
1 small onion ~ chopped
2 carrots ~ peeled and sliced
3 leaves collard greens
1 - 14.5 ounce can vegetable broth
1 - 15 ounce can black-eyed peas ~ rinsed and drained
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar (adjust to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
(makes 4 servings)


  • Heat olive oil in a soup pot, over medium heat; cook & stir garlic until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add onion & carrots. Cook & stir until carrots begin to brown & onion becomes translucent, about 7-8 minutes. Cook & stir collard greens into onion mixture until wilted, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour vegetable broth and black-eyed peas into vegetable mixture & bring to boil. Reduce heat to low.  Cover & simmer soup until vegetables are softened, about 20 minutes.
  • While soup is simmering, mix quinoa & water in a sauce pan & bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover & simmer until collard greens are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir cider vinegar into soup to taste & season with salt & pepper.
Enjoy and Happy New Year!
