I finally got around to trying the Adovia Purifying Mud Mask, with Pure Dead Sea Mud, Aloe Vera and Vitamin C. I haven't used a face mask product since I was a pre teen copying my mom one day. I was excited, especially because it has Pure Dead Sea Mud, which is known to provide great results.
This product is for all skin types, so I wasn't really…

I finally made my way over to Lowes today so I could buy the things necessary to try the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed idea I saw on Pinterest.
I wanted two beds, so I intended to buy 20 cement blocks, but I underestimated how heavy they were and how much space it would take up in the car. After grocery shopping, and making a quick trip to ToysRUs to pick up a birthday gift, space was limited. So, I bought:
6 bags of Top Soil
3 bags of Potting…

I have something to confess. My months of gardening went to waste a long while ago, because I saw a snake and lizards that made me feel as if my backyard was their own, not mine, lol. Usually I'm not afraid of garden snakes, but when I'm in the backyard alone a garden snake starts to look like an anaconda. Eek! With all the different types of garden / garter snakes there are, I can't tell when a poisonous snake is nearby. So to…Continue

The Perfective Ceuticals Divine Age Guardian Cream is an anti-aging cream, so I wasn't planning on using it. I don't have any wrinkles, so I never thought someone in their early 30's would have use for such a product. My intentions were to have my grand mother try it, but we're in different states and it would be too much of a hassle, so I did a little research. I checked the Internet to find out at what age people should start…Continue

Have I mentioned previously how much I love Pinterest? I went on there to create a board for Pirate theme goodies just so I can have an easy place to keep track of things I found. After searching their site for additional ideas, I came across much better ideas than I originally had. Things I can do myself, which means I can save money (yay)!

I enjoy reading when I have free time and sharing my opinion. So it should come as no surprise that I welcome opportunities to review books, especially when they have a juicy,…

I made the Eggnog Matcha the same way I made the Caramel Matchaccino. As soon as I opened the packet, the smell of eggnog was noticeable. It smelled great.
Note: it has a tear area, but don't use it.…

I was given the opportunity to try two products from RedLeafTea.com. The Caramel Matchaccino and the Naturally flavored Eggnog Matcha. I've never heard of either products, but I was excited to try them. Here's my thoughts in the Caramel Matchaccino.
First things first, I had no idea what…

Do you have family traditions during the Holidays? I remember when I was a child, every Christmas we'd get new pajamas. The night before Christmas we would wear our new PJs and I couldn't wait to be able to open the presents in the morning. I loved waking up to Christmas music and Christmas breakfast! I even looked forward to those traditions as a teen.…

Remember last year when I posted a review about iCaughtSanta.com? In case you have no idea what I'm referring to, click to read about my iCaughtSanta.com experience. It's a program where you simply take a photo somewhere in your home, then choose between Santa Clauses or even reindeers and add them to your photo. The software makes it look like you've caught Santa in action...for real! This couldn't be any easier. It makes a…Continue

Well, that's not all I want of course, but after months or probably years of replacing the crappy can openers I have bought I figured I'll vent my frustrations on my blog!
You know how you kind of splurge on household goods when you buy your first house or apartment? Well, that's what we did. We spent $30 on an electric can opener which was pretty…

For a few days, I had the FAGE coupons sitting in my purse. I even forgot to buy it while on a grocery shopping trip so I decided to stop and pick some up while I was on my way home. In the aisle, there were two ladies looking in the cottage cheese and yogurts area. I stood next to them trying to find the FAGE cups so I could make the trip a quick one, but I needed help because I could not find them among the countless cups of…Continue

I was provided with the opportunity to try a pair of DarcusTori Diamond Simulant Drop Earrings. I'm a huge fan of jewelry, but I usually stay clear of simulated diamonds, because well...they're simulated diamonds. I really didn't know what to expect, but I was surprised…Continue

A little while ago, I had the opportunity to try a Bestowed Healthy Product Sample Box. I was curious to see what the box would contain and how much my taste buds would appreciate the different samples...there were some hits and definitely some misses!
I was given another chance to try a Bestowed, this time it would be samples of 100% GMO-Free…

Well, so much has happened to my little piercing since I got it a few days ago that I thought updating my post was a must! Many times, probably daily my husband would tell me to stop fiddling with my lips. It wasn't until I got my piercing and caused some serious swelling that I realized I did in fact touch my lips too often.
After night one, I…

Some people collect stamps, some "collect" tattoos and I've always had a secret love of piercings. I've had a tongue ring for 14 years, my <cough> pierced but they were removed after a week because I hated the way my shirts looked and I have seven holes in my ears. I always wanted to do more, but I worried about what others would think since I network a lot. But, this morning I woke up with the "what are you waiting…Continue

A few weeks ago, one of the Living Social deals posted was of a three month subscription to Bulu Box for $10. I went to their website and saw that Bulu Box is a product sampling company similar to the Bestowed box I tried earlier this year, but with a focus on weight loss. Weight loss is the whole purpose of me exercising, so I figured I'd try it. I couldn't wait for the box to arrive!
According to their web site:
"Bulu Box is the first health, nutrition and weight…Continue

Finally had a chance to experience a Florida zoo since moving to the south in 2007. Had coupons for Zoo Miami (formally Miami Metro Zoo) that expire at the end of the year and with the super low total it ends up being for a family of 4, we figured we may as well use it. For most of the large animals, it seemed as if there were only one or two of each type, but I guess there's a method to their madness.…

Look at the first photo on the right! That is the standing fan that currently sits in our dining room. It still works, but while my kids were running one day it fell and a screw from the base popped off. I keep forgetting to use a larger screw to fix it (or glue), but since we rarely eat in the dining room I only remember it there when I'm looking through the front window.…

Yesterday my son lost a tooth. This was a shock because he lost four of his teeth really early (at 4 years old), then all his other teeth got comfortable. In the morning he mentioned his tooth was shaking a bit and by the time my husband and I got back home after grocery shopping we were told it was waiting for us on the counter. I asked him what he plans to do with it and he told me my mom gave him a quarter. So I told him…Continue
