Sunsella Silicone Popsicle Molds (6 pack) REVIEW

It’s summer time! What does that mean? For my kids it’s waiting for the ice cream truck to get a popsicle or other frozen treat or running to the freezer to grab one out of the freezer. Not only is it costly but have you looked at the ingredients in those things? Artificial colors, flavors and so much sugar!

We decided to make our own popsicles for a fun summer treat. This is a great way to sneak in healthy foods in to your child’s diet. I have a very VERY picky eater who won’t touch fruit with a ten foot pole, but she loves my fruity popsicles.

I found these great popsicle molds on Amazon from Sunsella. They are made from silicone, are dishwasher safe and so easy to fill, freeze and serve. Just be sure your kids aren’t throwing away the little caps on the end, when they eat the popsicle. I had to rescue a few from the trash can!

Vita Sciences Nervex Pain Relief Therapy (Review)


3bc305641f030970b43b79f7588acfda43f6b706
Do you ever have a foot fall asleep, or your hand and you experience that painful tingling feeling? Do you know how much it hurts AND annoys you? Imagine feeling that pain CONSTANTLY only in varying degrees. The constant feeling that you want to “wake up” your foot, or hand, or arm, whatever. It is exhausting, headache inducing and makes you very very irritable.

This is a condition that is called Peripheral Neuropathy.It can cause numbness, over-sensitivity, burning, and tingling in hands or feet. It is nerve damage. Conditions that can cause this type of pain include Tennis Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Arthritis, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Plantar Fascitis, Sciatica, Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, Shin Splints, Neuropathy, and more.

I have fibromyalgia as well as nerve damage form a previous surgery. This nerve is in my left thigh. The pain, numbness and tingling I feel is horrible at times.

6506318a99e7888fe02c0988c40f6df3fcdb811b

I found Vita Sciences Nervex. Nervex is an odorless cream that you apply to where you are having pain, your hands or feet, for example, to work on fixing those damaged nerves. The type of damage caused by vitamin deficiencies, alcohol abuse and diabetes are best addressed by using Nervex cream.

Using Nervex as directed is a safe and natural way to address vitamin deficiency with measured doses from the special airless dispenser. Rub the lotion into your hands or feet daily and it is your daily dose of B12.

I noticed an improvement from my nerve pain for the first time in a long time, after just a week of using Nervex.

Nervex is easy to use, gentle on the skin, and made of all natural ingredients.

I’m very happy with my experiences with Nervex and I think you will be too. If you are experiencing nerve pain, check it out. As always, check with your doctor to make sure this is a product that is safe for you to use.

You can purchase it on amazon.

Are We There YET!? You Need Car Games For Your Trip!

I love to travel. In fact, I think I was born with wanderlust. My parents lived in Pennsylvania, but because my Mom had a friend in Florida who had an amazing obstetrician, she and my dad packed up and MOVED to Florida for the duration of her pregnancy with me. Cool story, right? They lived in Florida and my mom received the best prenatal care she could get. She had advanced maternal age, a history of loss and preterm labor, a history of genetic issues and the list goes on. This wonderful doctor, “Dr. Margaret” put my mother on bedrest in the hospital, so I would be born healthy. When I was about 3 months old, my parents packed up their car and we made the trip back “home” to Pennsylvania. It should not come as a surprise that the only way my mom could calm me down to go to sleep was with car rides. As I got older, I loved taking trips with extended family. I traveled up and down the east coast for various vacations. My only problem was boredom! We would play license plate games and get truckers to blow their horns. We would sing and I’d then resort to reading.

number-plate-game

Kids today have it a little nicer for traveling. There are hand held entertainment devices ranging from gaming systems to tablets with any app imaginable, but nothing can quite compare to playing a good, old fashioned car game.

alphabet-game

I have teamed up with www.insuremyrentalcar.com to bring you these really car games that you can simply print out, grab a clip board and a pack of colored pencils and GO! It helps alleviate the boredom and gets your kids (and adults too!) unplugged for a little while. I hope you enjoy these. We tried them out on a recent trip and my children, ranging in age from 9 to 23, had a blast playing these games. The older ones got a little competitive, but they included the “baby” as well.

Exfoliating Body Scrub with Dead Sea Salt and Natural Oils

I suffer from dry skin. It is something that I find incredibly annoying. I’m always looking for an effective product to help. I like scrubs, so I was excited to try this Exfoliating Body Scrub with Dead Sea Salt and Natural Oils.

ecuhQm35SlekgPmJLXmk_Salt%20Scrub_Ocean%20Breeze_s

I used this exfoliating body scrub in the shower, scooping it out with my hand, a little bit and slathering it over my shoulders and down my arms….it felt….incredible. I rubbed it into my skin and the ocean breeze scent was so invigorating. My skin felt so soft. As I rinsed it off, the floor of the shower was a little slick, so be careful with that, I think I used a little too much, but my skin…my skin felt so soft and smooth and it looked amazing! Not only can you use this product in the bath or shower as a body scrub, but you can set it on the side of your sink and use it as a hand exfoliator or use it during your pedicure as a foot scrub. It’s so versatile and no matter where you use it, it feels great!

Zakia’s Morocco: Moroccan Beauty Products Review

I needed a little bit of time out.  The kids were fighting, the cats were chasing the dog and the house was a MESS.  I looked in my “spa drawer” and found my Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask.  I wasn’t sure I could take the few minutes it would take for this mud mask to dry, but I needed it.  I locked myself in the bathroom with a bowl, spoon and my Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask and went to work.

VI6fWGoLSfOtfllz3Nrq_brandbacker_ghassoul-
I first washed my face and patted it dry.  Then I mixed a spoon full of the Clay Mask with some water.  You don’t need much, but I added it until it looked like mud.  I then used my fingers, but you can use a make up spatula, to smear it on my face.  It was awesome.  I looked hilarious and when I stepped out of the bathroom, the appearance of my face stopped my children in their tracks.  At least there was quiet for a while!  It took about 10 minutes or so for it to try, maybe a little less in spots that I didn’t have it as thick and longer in spots that I really laid it on.  I loved how it felt as it dried.  I couldn’t wait to see the results when it came off!
IMG_0545

Finally, it was time to wash it off and I quickly learned not to get it in my eyes.  You don’t want to do that.  Avoid the eye area at all costs.  I rinsed and wiped and discovered some residue around my jaw line and washed some more.  What was the end result?  My skin felt as smooth as a newborn baby.  I was shocked.  I didn’t expect such a great result!  It was incredible!  I found myself touching my face throughout the evening because it felt so smooth!

Moroccan Glassoul Clay Mask is made with natural and organic clay from deep inside the Ancient Atlas Mountains of Morocco.  This clay is a perfect skin treatment for cleaning, detoxifying, toning and rejuvenating.  It can be used as a facial mask which is not only relaxing, but gives your skin a new healthy glow (and feels incredible).  One incredible property of Ghassoul clay is the capacity of absorption and adsorption due to the high level of ion exchange.

If you would like to try this awesome product for yourself, hop over to Amazon and order it.  Let me know what you think!

I was given this product for free to review for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Silicon Devices COMFORT+ Bluetooth Earphone Review

Until my last two surgeries, I loved to run and I was out running nearly every night. I didn’t run far or fast, but I was out there. On days that I wasn’t running, I was often in the gym. One thing that helps motivate me is my music up LOUD. I need to really block out the world to get my run on. My biggest frustration with running or going to the gym was being tethered to my iPhone like it was an umbilical cord. I would turn one way and my cord would get tangled and detach. Or I’d accidently drop my phone *gasp* and it would pull my headphones out of my ears. Then there was the issue of where exactly to put my phone. Arm bands are annoying. A waist pack didn’t seem to work when I was attached to the phone. I couldn’t put it in my pocket. So frustrating!!!

Cornucopia Brands bead assortment- Compatible with Popular Brand Bracelets (Review)

My husband gave me a gorgeous expensive bead bracelet “just because” a few years back. I had always wanted one and I envisioned a bead for every memory. You know how that goes. A bracelet full of beads. Well, my budget said no to that in a hurry! At $25-40 a bead? Then my girls each wanted a bracelet. My oldest had gotten one for her 18th birthday. The others want one too. Oh boy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Well, I found a fabulous alternative to those expensive beads. Cornucopia Brands sells a 20 bead assortment that is compatible with Pandora, Biagi, Chamillia, Zable, Kay Charmed Memories and Troll Chains. I was given a set to try and I am in love! There are murano glass beads, charms and spacers. I put them on my bracelet along with my regular beads and they look great! I do think I will use them to make a nice little bracelet for my girls, though. At $20 for 20 beads, I can make two bracelets for the price of one bead.

Is Your Booty Fresh? (Review)

I don’t know about you, but I like to smell fresh and clean. I take extreme effort in washing my hair regularly, cleansing my body properly and regularly, I wear deodorant regularly and I often will use fresh scented perfumes and I have been known to “freshen up” during the day if I’ve been perspiring a lot. One area of my body that I have been focusing on is uh, um, my rear. Why? It’s simple, bums smell bad. You can say what you want or believe what you want, but yours does too. If you are like me and you add medications that may cause gas from that region, you take even extra effort in being clean and fresh. Booty Fresh is just such a great product.

82eadb697eeba6a88e3a707c29ebb5ab6622ad65

Booty Fresh is not a deodorant spray or a perfume. Instead, it neutralizes the odor-causing bacteria under the skin of your booty and the surrounding area. After the spray is rinsed off, the odor is gone! Have you ever felt not completely clean after washing with soap or wipes? You will after using Booty Fresh.

After ONE full application of Booty Fresh, you won’t notice a nasty scent from your bum for up to two weeks! It can last longer!

This product is all natural and safe. a 4 oz bottle is 120 uses.

If you are curious and want to try Booty Fresh for yourself, hop on over to Amazon and order it! Give it a try. It works!

Quality Encapsulations Omega 3 Fish Oil – Triple Strength- REVIEW

Here I am promoting the fish oil again! Why do I like omega 3 fish oil so much? Well, I want to share something I read some time ago, about the benefit about fish oil. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10232294 This is a study that was done at the National Institutes of Health. Omega 3 fatty acids in bipolar disorder: a preliminary double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was the name of the study. Since then, additional studies have been done, on depression, suicide, mania, bipolar, types of bipolar, and the list goes on. My oldest daughter was diagnosed with bipolar at a very young age. If something as simple as Omega 3 supplements can help her regulate her moods and keep her bipolar in check, I will consider it a miracle drug. It is worth trying, in my opinion. Of course, there are other, more mainstream benefits to omega 3 fish oil! All you need to do is type “benefits of omega 3″ into any search engine. I used google. That led me to a medical source that I consider reliable. The benefits? Can help rheumatoid arthritis. Can help depression. Can help with asthma. Brain development. Alzheimer’s. Again, this list goes on.

It’s a simple supplement that comes in a variety of dosages. Any more, you can find it in a chewable form, a pill, in a syrup, even, so there’s no excuse to not try it. I’ve reviewed several different ones you can try.

IMG_0554 (1)

This one that I recently tried is a favorite. It’s by Quality Encapsulations and it’s LEMON FLAVORED. When you are taking a fish oil pill that could cause a fishy after taste or burp, LEMON is amazing. There were no fishy burps or after taste in the making of this review. This particular supplement is triple strength. It’s rich in EPA and DHA. Not all supplements are created equal. Some may be low in one or the other, or both. This is an easy to swallow soft gel. It’s easier than those common cold remedy type soft gels.

35610a15514eebffb83675bfa0ea34c653c4a3a2

Oh! Taking omega 3s can help lower your cholesterol! I forgot that!

This product is made in the USA.

You can find it at Amazon!

I don’t care which type you try, I just hope you do. Omega 3 is important!
