True Chews Jerky Treats Review!

Links to this post



I love my pets and my pets love to receive treats!

I received True Chews Premium Jerky Cuts for Dogs from Chewy.com for review. I must admit that they look delicious...my son actually thought is was "jerky" for us and asked if he could have some. He was very disappointed to learn that they were only for our dogs. 


AutoRight Easy Wash Stick and Auto Wash Stick Review & Giveaway!

Links to this post

Keeping my car clean is a full-time job, and because I live in a rural area, my car gets dusty quite often. 

I love to be able to just take my car through the automatic car wash, but that can get expensive, for as often as I need to wash my car and hand washing takes what seems like forever! 

I was really excited to be able to review a couple of products from Auto-right.com, a new division of HomeRight,  the Auto-Wash Stick and the Easy-Wash Stick.  These new products make washing your car so much faster and easier!

Lulalu Calender Pad Review!

Links to this post


I am definitely all about being organized...although, at times, I have a little trouble staying that way!

I was recently able to review a couple of really cool organizational products from Lulalu, a Calender Note Pad and a Weekly Errand Pad. 



Both products provide an excellent way to keep your household organized. The best feature is that they stick to any smooth, non-porous surface, such as stainless-steel, mirrors, tile or metal. Another awesome feature is that if you decide your don't like where you put it the first time...simply remove it and stick it somewhere else! The adhesive is can be used over and over again and leaves no residue on your surface!


I love these note pads! They have helped to keep me a little more organized than I am normally able to do, and keep up with all of the tasks, errands and appointments for my family.

Take a look at these products and several other ways to keep yourself organized by clicking HERE!

Wireless Bluetooth Headset Review!

Are you a gadget junkie?

I may be a bit of a gadget junkie, but my husband is definitely a hard-core gadget person! He loves to surf websites for the coolest or the most useful thing he can find. For him, there's always a reason to buy even the most unusual gadget or electronic device. 

I was given the opportunity to review an item from Tmart.com. This site literally has countless items and there is something for just about every electronic need one may have. After searching the site for what seemed to be hours, I decided on a Wireless Bluetooth Headset with MP3 Player, as a gift for my husband. I thought this would be something he could really use and a new toy for him to play with!

Herbal Supplements can be used for many things!

Links to this post

Women are ordinarily health conscious and are aware of the advantages of herbal supplements for themselves and their families. It is extremely difficult to easily eat a diet that includes everything needed to optimally sustain a healthy body. 

Herbal supplements can help alleviate symptoms of illnesses for which you are receiving medical help. For that reason, many people take herbal supplements that boost their energy, help them to sleep well at night, or maintain general health. The problem is that, since the Federal Drug Administration does not closely monitor herbal supplements, finding a reliable source of herbal supplements may be difficult. Some supplements, too, are difficult to find at your local drug store, particularly ones that support reproductive health and address aging problems.

Wise Woman supplements are high in quality and made form the whole herb. They come in various forms for ease of use. Furthermore, if you have various physical difficulties, you can search on the website at www.ovitaminpro.com by symptom to determine which supplement you might need. Care should be taken to consult with your primary physician before embarking upon a supplement regimen.

For the best in herbals, choose to buy Wise Women herbal supplements from OVitaminPro.com. Delivery and purchase are secure, reliable and prompt!

Etching Expressions Personalized Wine Bottle Review!

Links to this post


Special occasions call for special gifts!

Etching Expressions has the perfect gifts to give for weddings, anniversaries, graduation, a new baby...or just about any special day. I received a personalized bottle of wine from Etching Expressions, for review. I chose to have it personalized for my upcoming anniversary.



When I opened the package, I was truly amazed with not only the design, but the quality. What a unique way to commemorate my anniversary and give my husband something that he would have never thought of receiving. He loved it and the Merlot wine was exceptional. Other wine choices include a delicious Cabernet Sauvigon, White Wine, Chardonnay and even a California Sparkling Wine. 


Etching Expressions offers a wide variety of wine to choose from, depending on the brand chosen. They even offer non-alcoholic bottles for those that would love the concept but prefer an non-alcoholic drink for the gift.


Each bottle is individually created by their skilled artisans into a truly unique work of art. All bottles are customized with the customer's choice of design and personalized message.

Umi Children's Shoes Review & Giveaway!!

Links to this post

How important is a good children's shoe?

In my opinion, extremely important! My four year old son, Tristan, can wear out most shoes in no time at all. A tough, durable but comfortable shoe is necessary, especially for the kiddos who are always on the go, like Tristan.

I was sent a pair of shoes to review from Umi Children's Shoes...the Oleson Shoe, in Black.  This tough little shoe is awesome for climbing over Lego pieces, running around the playground or even jumping in puddles. Not that I encourage Tristan to jump into puddles, but anyone with an active little boy knows, this is inevitable!

This shoe is perfect for Tristan...it's so well made with partial leather uppers, durable out-soles and an easy to close hook and loop strap. They are comfortable for him to wear all day, super easy to clean and water-resistant.  What more could a Mother ask for in a shoe? 

Now through 9/2/13 Umi Children's Shoes is having an awesome Back-to-School sale!

Thyroid Disorders

Links to this post

If you’re chronically fatigued, gaining weight and always constipated, you could have thyroid disease, a medical condition that impairs the function of the thyroid, which is a butterfly shaped gland in the neck that produces the hormones triiodothyronine and thyroxine, and influences every cell, organ and tissue in the human body.

Thyroid hormones are vital for metabolism and growth, and there are many types of thyroid diseases. The main ones include hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). Thyroid disease affects about 1/7th of the population, and the condition is much more prevalent in women. When not addressed, thyroid disease can lead to serious health consequences such as heart disease, infertility, osteoporosis and even thyroid cancer.

How to Manage Your Child's Food Allergies at School

Links to this post

Food allergies are a gigantic pain for children and parents, and they bring an entire new set of challenges to life. When going to restaurants or grocery shopping, you’re constantly evaluating food labels to make sure your child remains safe and avoids the unpleasant allergic reactions from allergen foods. Peanuts, milk, soy and wheat can cause terrible reactions like anaphylaxis, hives and upset stomach, and in rare cases, these reactions can be very severe or even fatal.

Kid's iPad Case Review!

Links to this post


I have four children and two of them are 8 and 4...which means, if they use any of my devices, I'm a little nervous. 

So when I received a couple of Kid's iPad Cases from Apple Pie, for review, I was really excited! I love trying out "kid-proof" products. My first reaction to the iPad cases, was questionable...they were cardboard and very plain. Nothing like any iPad case I had ever seen. After putting them on the iPad, I realized that they were perfect for my boys. They could each decorate the case using their imagination and personality, all while protecting my expensive device. 

My son, Dominic's creation!

Enjoy a Day at the Spa!

Links to this post
Have you ever considered spending your vacation at a spa retreat? Treating yourself to a week or more of pampering is a fabulous way to unwind and de-stress. If you haven't been to a retreat, take a crash course in spa day 101. Spas come in all stripes, from no-frills to total luxury. Which type of spa vacation you choose depends on what types of spa treatments appeal to you.


Spas with hot mineral springs have attracted health-seekers for centuries and rightly so. But aside from the known health benefits, spending a week at a mineral spring spa is sure to relax you completely. But keep in mind that spa retreats that don't have hot mineral springs can offer a great health and relaxation alternative in the form of steam baths, whirlpools, and hydrotherapy tubs.

In addition to water therapy, spas offer a wide range of treatments designed to rejuvenate your body. You can spend your vacation getting daily facials, massages, mud wraps, sea salt scrubs, manicures, and pedicures. Some spas offer alternative health treatments such as acupuncture, Tai Chi, and yoga. There are even medical spas that give beauty treatments like Botox and microdermabrasion.

When looking for a spa vacation experience, be sure to find out what services are available and what amenities are offered. Inquire about staff credentials, and be sure to ask if the spa maintains a quiet and peaceful environment. If you want peace and calm, don't choose a spa retreat that doubles as some other entertainment venue - otherwise whatever benefits you receive from your spa treatments will be lost amongst all the noise and bustle.

A Good Fit Makes a Huge Difference!

Links to this post
Finding the right clothing can be a challenge for even the most professional of dressers. There are, however, a number of ways to find the right outfits. There are even many ways you can modify your current outfits to  make them look better, fit better and feel better.

First off, always make sure you get rid of clothes that don't fit well. There is no reason to save clothes in your closet "just in case" they someday fit. If something doesn't fit or you don't like it, ditch it.
Flat Front Pants

Next, make sure you take a deep breath before you shop. Get some Dickies clothing or something else you feel comfortable in. Dickies offers a variety of things you can wear with your professional ensemble to make your clothes look even more professional and up to date. 


Carpenter Pants
Finally, give yourself plenty of time to look for the right apparel. Always try things on before you purchase them. It would be terrible to purchase an outfit only to find that it doesn't fit. Make sure you choose clothing you feel comfortable in. Make sure you walk around in each outfit, as well as sit down. This will ensure that the clothing fits well.
