@WELLEDIA Wellspring Ceramic Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser ~ #EssentialOils

Links to this post

It seems as if Essential Oils are on everyone's mind these days. I personally, have jumped on that bandwagon and plan to stay as I love what the oils can do for me and my family in a more naturl way than other products. In addition to just having the oils on-hand I also love the idea of using a diffuser to help create a certain atmosphere in my home or to distribute the Essential Oils for a specific purpose. 


I received the Wellspring Ceramic Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser from Welledia for review and I can't even tell you how many times it has been used in my home. I absolutely love it! I can tell you that the most commonly used Essential Oil has been lavender...I love that I can use my diffuser and distribute the lavender aroma at night time as it is calming and helps my children relax and go to sleep naturally.

Ageless Derma Oil Free Purifying Facial Cleanser Gel ~ #agelessderma

Links to this post
Do you love your facial cleanser? A good one is hard to come by, that's for sure. Especially for someone like myself, with super dry skin. Most cleansers clean my face but leave my skin feeling really tight and super dried out. 



I received the Ageless Derma Oil Free Purifying Facial Cleanser Gel for review and this is one facial cleanser that follows through with it's claim and I'm impressed! So much that I plan to keep using it. Even my 21 year old daughter loved how it made her skin feel and she honestly has a completely different type of skin than mine.

Say Goodbye To Wrinkled, Sagging, Dry Skin! #anavitawrinklecream

Links to this post
I'm a huge supporter of products that help slow or repair the signs of aging...I'm not happy about the effects that aging has had on my skin and body and am willing to try any product for the best results. 




I received Anavita Anti-Wrinkle Cream for review and as I do with every anti-aging product that I receive, I tried it out for a couple of weeks. The results were really good! I could definitly see an improvement in my skin, especially the fine lines on my face. I even tried it on my hands and noticed much smoother skin and less of that dry, "old" look. Nice!

CHRISTY NOCKELS' New Album "LET IT BE JESUS" Review & Giveaway

Links to this post

About Christy:
As a worship leader for many years, she has been an integral part of Passion Conferences from its conception in 1997. She's seen first hand music sweep people into the presence of God in a powerful way. A pastor's kid, who was born in Fort Worth and raised in Oklahoma, she grew up singing in church. She met her husband, Nathan, in 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Co. They recorded an independent record with fellow worship leader Charlie Hall under the name Sons and Daughters that led to an invitation from Louie Giglio to participate in the first Passion Conference in Austin, Texas. Christy's voice gained a national platform when she and Nathan formed the duo Watermark, recording four acclaimed albums before that musical season ended, paving the way for Christy's solo career. In 2008, the couple moved to Atlanta to become part of Passion City Church where she serves on the worship team with sixsteprecords label-mates, Chris Tomlin and Kristian Stanfill. The following year, Nockels released her acclaimed solo debut, Life Light Up and spent much of the next two years touring with Tomlin and Passion.

Slugslingers...it's time to slug it out with a whole new kind of slugslinging!

My boys are huge Slugterra fans so when we received this movie for review a couple of months ago they immediately took it into their room to watch and I haven't seen it since! Although I've cleaned their room several times since then, I just recently found it behind the TV stand. When I pulled it out they said..."Wow...thanks Mom! We were looking for that!"

Needless to say, my review post is really late but since Slugterra is such a big hit with my boys and tons of other kids worldwide, I knew I needed to write about it. 

#CLYPPI Fingernail & Toenail Clippers are the last Clippers you will ever need!

Links to this post
Both men and women want to look good and one aspect of looking good is having attractive hands and feet. Having the right nail clippers on hand is more important than you may think. Having good quality beauty tools ensures that you not only get your grooming done but also that you get it done right the first time. 


I received fingernail and toenail clippers for review from CLYPPI and after using these clippers for some time, I know now that I will never go back to my old ways. As a matter of fact, these clippers are so awesome that my daughter, who is a Cosmetology student, actually adopted one pair as her own. They are ideal for home manicures and pedicures as well as professional services.

A few weeks ago I had this amazing little car for one week to test drive...it was AWESOME! I've never owned a sports car before so this was a special treat for me. 


Whe I say this is seriously one cool car, I really mean it! If I weren't a Mom I would definitely have a car like this. Just look at it! Who wouldn't enjoy driving this around town and on the highway? It looks super sleek, especially with the top down. Awesome! We didn't get to put the top down much because of the rain, but it was more than cool when the weather cooperated. The retractable hard top is a cinch to operate...simply put the car in neutral, pop the convenient handle at the top of the windshield, push the button on the dash and in no time, the top has hidden itself away! Putting it back up is just as fast and easy.

#APEX Cures Bladder Leakage Simply & Naturally! #Giveaway

Links to this post
Many woman find that before having children they can run up and down the stairs, do yoga, bounce on a trampoline and more with out any problem. However there a few that experience bladder leakage and it's no fun at all. Although not a subject most of us like to talk about, it happens to countless women every day....

  dontpad_101

Believe it or not bladder leakage is a common occurrence in approximately one third of the female population. However, just because it's common doesn't necessarily mean that it's natural occurrence. In fact bladder leakage is a huge warning sign that the pelvic floor muscles are too weak to prevent an accidental leak. If you leak when you laugh, cough, sneeze or exercise that is your body telling you that you need to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. Kegels are the answer to this. However according to the National Institute of Health only 50% of women who actually do Kegels to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles do them correctly. Because of this Kegel exercises are largely ineffective. Building pelvic floor muscle requires resistance. Trying to squeeze muscles that are hard to isolate and identify is very frustrating and without resistance largely fails.
