The Birthday Times Newspaper Review

How cool is this?? To have your own Birthday Times Newspaper. I thought this is pretty cool and my birthday is coming up also. So I can show this off to family and friends. Their is actually a lot of birthday's coming up in my family this would be such a nice gift maybe even frame it. My Dad's Birthday is tomorrow and I know he would enjoy this he loves anything to do with history. 

This newspaper is available from 1929-2012 this would even be a cute idea if you know of someone having a baby to get this and maybe put it in a blue frame for a boy or a pink frame for a girl. What a cute baby gift idea. I love my birthday times I will be framing mine and thinking about getting all my kid's one also.

Juice Plus Review

I have been really loving gummy vitamines and when I was asked if I would like to try Juice Plus I jumped at the chance to try them and I have to say besides these giving the veggies and fruits that I need they taste great too. They almost taste like candy which may or may not be good. I have taken the chewable gummy over the past weeks and have to say i feel it has helped with my digestive tract and I am pretty sure it has to do with the fiber in them.

A little about Juice Plus:

Realizing the importance of whole food based nutrition, NSA developed and introduced Juice Plus+ in the early 1990s with the goal of providing customers more nutrition from fruits and vegetables every day. More than just a multivitamin, Juice Plus+ fruit and vegetable supplements provide concentrated nutrition from 25 different fruits, vegetables, berries, and grains that help bridge the gap between what you should eat and what you do eat. Juice Plus+ supplements even a healthy diet with added nutrients from fruits and vegetables you may not get every day.
Now that you know our story, are you ready to create a healthy story of your own? Try Juice Plus+.

Scentsy Alzheimers Charitable Warmer Review/Giveaway

Today I am going to talk to you about the Forget Me Not charitable warmer this warmer helps support the research of Alzheimer's Disease. This is a beautiful warmer it's a baby blue color with cutout's of flowers and two beautiful flowers in the front. I really do love this warmer and it adds a bit of color to our room. 

Your purchase of the Forget-Me-Not Scentsy Charitable Cause Warmer will help support the research efforts of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation. Together, we can help the Fisher Center focus on the cause, care, and cure for Alzheimer's disease and educational outreach. 

I would just make sure not to put this burner in a air path or under a fan because this can cause the wax to build up around the edges and not burn. I have only experienced this once with this burner once I moved it there was no other problems. I love Scentsy products and as long as they are out I will continue to use them!!

Would you like to win a Forget me Not burner?? Well enter the Rafflecopter Below for your chance to win!!

Filippo Berio Olive Oil Review

Today I am going to talk to you about Filippo Berio wouldn't it be great to use this instead of butter?? I really like the filippo berio it has a very light and great taste. We used some of this to season our pan and so our food wouldn't stick. So you ask what are the benefits of changing from butter to olive oil?? I think the benefits would be great and a lot healthier.

I highly recommend everyone trying this and substituting this in place of that butter you use that is not healthy at all.  Some of the benefits are it naturally free of cholesterol, trans fat, salt, sugar, and gluten. It is rich in monounsaturated fat which is a good fat. So it helps protect against heart disease, aids in digestion and has been known to prevent healthy aging. So after trying this oil I really do love it why don't you make the switch too?

BoxWave Iphone 5 Case Review

I was really excited when I had the opportunity to review some products from Boxwave. The products I was able to review was the..

This phone case is really nice it is rubber but not the type of rubber where it is going to be stretched out. I feel having this case on my phone does protect it even the sides are covered which is a bonus for me!! If you are looking for some great cases at great prices go check Boxwave out.

This is the front see how sleek and pretty. This case also has grippers on the back so if you put it on a slick surface it grips onto that surface so it doesn't fall off table. 

Reveal your distinctive techie style with BoxWave’s Gummy Pixel Case!

The next case I was able to review was the...

This is also a really nice case very sleek and very protective. And it helps it's pink my favorite color ever. These cases you can see the apple logo through and also come around the sides of the phone for protection. Another one that won't get stretched out of shape it holds it's shape.

Squatchi Little Feet Sizer Review

I am the type of person I go out and get my kid's shoes and never know the right size and always seem to be returning something. Well now you can buy with confidence and know your child's correct size without just taking a guess at it and now with the Squatchi you won't have to. What is the Squatchi you ask?? The squatchi gives you time back on the useless shopping trips it is a one of a kind children's at home shoe sizer. Instead of taking the kid's to the store with you because you have to get the perfect size just size their feet right at home how cool is that??

Squatchi is a one-of-a-kind children’s home shoe sizer.  It frees you from going on countless errands, especially with the kids.  It saves you the trouble of returning shoe after shoe. Oh sure, online returns may be free, but your time certainly isn’t.  Most of all, Squatchi makes your life so much easier.  It makes time for the real bonding moments, which do not happen on shopping trips.

I really do think this is great idea!! Squatchi was created after a straw broke the camel’s back.
Amy Town Carabajal had just had “one of those” shopping trips.  The frustrating fight with her children erupted when they tried to buy shoes.  It was just too much. Even after the clash was over, the family left the store with no shoes.  It happened every time.
Amy was thrilled when online shoe shopping popped up.  Free shipping!  You can’t beat that.  But what if you buy shoes that don’t fit?  With kids, that happens.  Then you’re stuck, schlepping around town to ship them back.  Amy tried stopping into a shoe store or department store to size the kids up.  But, kids are smart. They hated those places and made no secret of it!
There had to be a better way.
Amy looked for a sizing solution, but the few options available were inaccurate, hard-to-use or just plain silly.  In 2008, after commiserating with friends and fellow parents, Amy realized parents needed a reliable, durable, fun home-sizing solution.  This was how Squatchi began.
In 2011, Amy and her good friend Debra Rosenbloum began brainstorming, designing, researching and writing the business plan.  After nine months, the concept of a foot growth chart and shoe-sizer for kids leapt from dream to reality!  Squatchi, the Bigfoot Sizer for Little Feet, was born!

Flat Iron Experts BabyBliss Hot Rollers Review

I love Flat Iron Experts I have worked with them several time and yet working with them again. I have yet to say anything bad. Today I will be talking about the Babyliss Ceramic Hot Rollers I really did enjoy using these besides curling my hair they gave my hair so much body and lift at the roots. My hair really looks a lot different when I use these my hair looks thinker too.

About the Babyliss Hot Rollers:

Ceramic generates far infrared heat for faster styling and less damge to the hair. Includes 30 spiked rollers (6 small, 8 medium, 8 large, 8 jumbo) with stay cool ends and 15  butterfly clips.

This retails for $219,95 but is on sale for $129.95 this is a great deal so go check them out before this sale is gone.

Mineral Hygienics Review

I love Mineral Hygienics this is the new summer foundation I have been using all spring and using this summer too. It is very light weight but offers full coverage without the full coverage feeling. I received 3 foundations to try and 1 powder and a bronzer/blush. I love all the colors ones I received were fairly light, Fairest, fair, bronzer, powder, and also a nice Kabuki brush I keep in my makeup bag for on the go. 


About Mineral Hygienics:

Our mission at Mineral Hygienics is to be the premier cosmetic manufacturer focusing on using natural products to promote health. We use natural ingredients to develop superior cosmetics that meet and exceed customer expectations we will not compromise on quality. In order to accomplish this objective, Mineral Hygienics strives to build lasting relationships with our customers, suppliers and employees.
Superior Cosmetics: Superior Cosmetics is why we are in business. When Mineral Hygienics develops a product, there is both reason and logic in its formula. Every product has a purpose, and the reason for conception is to be better than the competition. It is not our plan to release thousands of sub-par products, and saturate the market. Before our customers even use a product, we want them to feel comfort knowing that it was developed with care and reason, and after they use the product we want them to be so excited that they feel the need to share the excitement with others around them.
Lasting Relationships: We build lasting relationships on a solid foundation of ethics and good business practices. We want our relationships to grow strong. To achieve this we are personable, competent, moral, and flexible. We provide the personal touch…Come feel it.

These foundations really are nice they give you a great amount. In these I just poked holes in the plastic instead of taking the sticker off because there would be a big mess. I did accidentally take one of the plastic pieces off but the other ones I left because that was a big mess. I have nothing bad to say about this makeup and the great thing is it's 100% natural and long lasting and has better coverage. 

I will be using this all summer and maybe into the winter too. It is perfect!! If you want to follow them to see what they are up to check out their Facebook !!

Father's Day Gift Idea's Vapur Anti-Bottles Review

We love our Vapur bottle it has came in handy with our walks. It is really good to keep hydrated and with the Vapur bottle you can. We have used this a good amount of times and it really came in handy for us. The only thing I can say if you want something that is going to keep your drink cold for a long period of time then this wouldn't be the bottle for you. This is really great and we use it around the house a lot. It comes with a clip so we were able to clip it on our stroller.

A little about the company:

California-based Vapur, Inc. started in 2009 as a big idea with a simple solution. With unwelcome waste creeping into the social conscious and light shed on the ugly aftereffects of plastic, avid outdoorsmen, David Czerwinski, Brent Reinke and Jason Carignan set out to find an answer.
This team, led by a commitment to design, innovation and eco-responsibility, was on a mission to make hydration incomparably portable and disposable bottles obsolete. September of that founding year, Vapur launched its game changing product: the Vapur Anti-Bottle.
The Anti-Bottle is a reusable water bottle designed to stand when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, making it easy to use and carry on any adventure. Unlike bulky, rigid bottles, the portable Anti-Bottle can be easily tucked away, conveniently fitting into pockets, purses and packs.
About 87% lighter than typical rigid bottles, the slim, flexible Anti-Bottle only packs water weight. It also uses less energy to make and transport than rigid bottles, so not only is the Anti-Bottle light on your load, its environmental impact is also pretty “lite.” Vapur now has multiple product lines of Anti-Bottles, ranging from the highly-technical Element to the Quencher line for kids.
What began as a passion-filled hobby of three individuals ended up sparking a water revolution and international foldable bottle trend. Now as the leading designer, marketer and distributor of reusable, handheld, collapsible hydration products, Vapur’s Anti-Bottles have been adopted by athletes, celebrities, activists and families alike.
Proudly manufactured in the United States, Vapur Anti-Bottles are durable, freezable, dishwasher safe and BPA-free.
In keeping with its commitment to the environment, Vapur contributes 1% of all sales to waterrelated and environmental causes. Vapur, much more than a hydration company, also created a community-giving program called Drops of Hope, donating thousands of bottles to charitable groups all over the world.
Now drink up and as always, "Live Flexible."

Are you looking for a great Father's Day Gift this would be perfect. Do you know a father that would benefit from this is he a runner, or just to take to work with him to keep on his desk??

Broken Build by Rachelle Ayala Review/Giveaway

What a great book. I have never read a book from this author Rachelle Ayala. Broken Building is about a girl named Jen Jones who has dark secrets in her past she even changes her appearance hoping to have a fresh start at life. Jen Jones, (or Jennifer Cruz), has a past with David Jewell, a software  CEO, who she takes on a job with. David doesn't recognize her, he hasn't seen her for 6 years, but there comes a time when he will find out who she is, and this ends up threatening their relationship.
Together the 2 have to rescue David's daughter, who is believed to be with his dead wife's family.

This is a great book but I have to say that in some parts of this book it may not be appropriate for some younger readers and it has some bad language also. 

I would love to read more of Rachelle Ayala's books in the future. And would love to hear your feeback? Have you read any of her other books? What did you think about them? How would you compair this book to her other  books? 

One Lucky Winner will win a Pdf file for this book!! So if you own a kindle or a Ereader, Come enter to win a copy of this book!!
