Making Your Own Greeting Cards & Gift Wrap From Fox Chapel Publishing is Fascinating

Posted on March 28, 2019 in Reviews women

I love the book:  Making Your Own Greeting Cards & Gift Wrap, which I received from Fox Chapel Publishing.  It’s a great book, with holidays covered, as well.  I’ve been working on some Easter Cards, and have had the help of this book.  All of the Holiday stuff is really gorgeous, especially for this time of year.

Great Things about this book:

  • 50 exciting projects for a wide range of beautiful and fun cards, boxes, bags, wraps, and pouches
  • Each project includes step-by-step illustrations and beautiful color photographs of the finished pieces
  • Includes advice on choosing materials and decorative items to make the most of your cards
  • Has handy templates to assist in both the card and gift wrap-making process
  • Practical instructions guide you through all the techniques used throughout the book
  • Inspirational galleries illustrate how one design motif or tool can be used to create a variety of different results

The step-by-step guides are great.  Even someone that doesn’t do crafts often, like myself, would be able to do these items.  They make it so simple, and even have pages in the back with guides to making some of the projects.  Like there’s an oval, for an Easter Egg.

The projects walk you through the entire process, from beginning to end, with ease. There’s also wedding projects, Halloween projects, which will be perfect for when School starts back up in the Fall, etc.

You need this book, whether you are a crafter or not.  I’m telling you, you will use this book.

Get Ready To Sparkle This Summer

Posted on February 17, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Spring, and Summer, are just around the corner.  And, I love the new line of Sparkly Sun Screen Lotion from Sunshine And Glitter.  I’ve never felt pretty.  My 21 year old, daughter, loves it too.  She took a bottle for herself.  This stuff is magnificent.  I will continue to use it, until I die.  Even though it’s too cold in Pennsylvania to go outside with it on, I’ve tried it, and it leaves me feeling so silky, and ready for a tan.

I gifted a bottle, to a friend, for her little girl, and she said that she won’t let her wipe it off.  Every time she bathes her, she wants more on.  I love it too, especially the Beach Gypsy SPF 30+.  The Beach Gypsy leaves you all glittery, and makes you feel so silky smooth.

I can’t wait to go to Lake Erie, this Summer, and wear these at Presque Isle.  I’ll be so shimmering, and fancy.  My daughter says she can’t wait either.  We will be the cutest ones there.

Sunshine and Glitter (Beach Gypsy) is Water Resistant, up to 80 Minutes, UVA/UVB Protection is important, as well, and they provide it.  It’s also Eco-Friendly, biodegradable glitter, and NO PABA, parabens, or pthlalates are included in this formula.

The kids’ formulas are SPF 50+, Water Resistant for up to 80 Minutes, Non-nano Zinc Oxide, Reef Safe, and No Animal Testing.  You can get some really good scents too, including Cotton Candy, and other scents.  Take a look at the shop to see more.

Remember they have Sun Screen Lotion, with SPF for children, and adults.  Including the Boho Beach, which is a mineral shimmer sunscreen.  Check them out, at the link above or below.

Sparkling Ice is all new

Posted on February 6, 2019 in 2019 Valentine's Day Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Sparkling Ice has a new formula, featuring naturally sourced colors and flavors, in addition to an updated logo and packaging design.  My son loves Sparkling Ice, and now he loves it more, with the naturally sourced colors, and flavors.  He says it tastes great!  My 21 year old, daughter, loves the taste as well.  They fight over who gets to drink the last bottle all the time.  I can’t keep Sparkling Ice in the house.  And, they love all the flavors, not one more than another.

Over the course of two years, Sparkling Ice conducted extensive marketing research and sensory testing with over 8000 consumers. This consumer driven project resulted in Sparkling Ice updating their flavorful, zero sugar sparkling water to now include colors from natural sources. With this new formulation, Sparkling Ice is proud to be one of the first brands to successfully transition to natural colors while maintaining the vibrant look and long shelf life that Sparkling Ice is known for.

You will love Sparkling Ice, whether you’ve had it before or not.  It tastes great.  My favorite flavor is the Sparkling Black Raspberry.  It’s delicious.  Jacob, and Sarah, will drink any of the flavors, as will I, but we each have a favorite.  And, you get 17 fluid ounces per bottle.  That’s a fantastic drink!

Sparkling Ice launched a new “Sparkling IceMaker” voice skill with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to provide consumers with Sparkling Ice cocktail and mocktail recipes to make in the comfort of their own home. Consumers can quickly engage with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant by sharing which Sparkling Ice flavor and spirit they currently have on hand to access a variety of different recipes on behalf of the brand.

About Sparkling Ice Beverages 

Sparkling Ice beverages are made with zero sugar, and combine sparkling water, real fruit flavor, vitamins and antioxidants to offer great tasting, lightly carbonated beverages. Available in sixteen fizzy, fruity flavors, including: Black Raspberry, Orange Mango, Pink Grapefruit, Kiwi Strawberry, Coconut Pineapple, Pomegranate Blueberry, Peach Nectarine, Lemon Lime, Crisp Apple, Classic Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Cherry Limeade, Strawberry Watermelon, Black Cherry, Grape Raspberry, and Ginger Lime.

Acid Reflux no more with Everyday Enzymes

Posted on August 16, 2018 in Reviews women

I have been taking Everyday Enzymes for about a month, and it really is great.  I was taking an Acid Reflux medication, but now, I simply take Everyday Enzymes.  The gas, bloating, and acid reflux have deceased.  I can’t believe how well this stuff works!  And, it’s not causing any side affects with my other meds.

Dr. Liz Cruz has devoted herself to your digestive health.  Her Wellness products are miracle workers.  We, in my household, love Everyday Enzymes.

An enzyme supplement designed to assist the body in maximum digestion of nutrients, production of energy, and immune system support. Supports the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Excellent for those with a sensitive gut and experience GI discomfort.

You get 200 supplements, and the suggested dosage is 2 before each meal, but being honest, I only take one.  And, it really works, first dosage works, for me!

No heartburn, acid reflux, or bloating.  You need this, if you have any of these problems.  Everyday Enzymes is the perfect supplement!

Dead Soxy has Dead Gorgeous No Show Socks

Posted on July 27, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

We love Dead Soxy, in our home.  The socks are magnificent, and long lasting.  I’ve washed them at least a dozen times, and they are still form fitting.  They last and last.  I can’t get over how well they are maintained.

My 7 year old now won’t wear anything but Dead Soxy.  He loves his no shows, can’t stand socks that go up to his knees.  Good thing that Dead Soxy can handle his feet.  With school starting back up, these are the perfect socks for Gym Class, or everyday class.

My daughter is in her 3rd year of college, and she loves Dead Soxy, as well.  She just snatched my last two pairs up yesterday.  She says they are so comfortable, and wash up well.

Wanna hear something great?  If you live in the USA, you can get FREE SHIPPING on your socks.  And, the no shows are 3 for $35.  That’s an amazing price.  We buy them all the time, because even the local store doesn’t have that great of a deal.

Some Fun Facts about Dead Soxy:

They are no slip:  You will not fall when you are wearing them.

They are no Shrink:  Seriously though, they will not shrink, I can attest to that!

No Fade:  They hold their color, like I’ve never seen before.

They are Versatile:  You can wear them with any shoes.

Lastly, they are Comfortable:  If they weren’t, I wouldn’t own so many.

Need a Bag for the big trip? Look no further than Thirty-One!

Posted on June 11, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews women

I love Thirty-One.  Their bags are perfect.  We are going on an overnight stay, and the In The Clear Tote is the perfect size for mine and my spouse’s clothes.  It’s so big, and spacious.  I could probably even fit my 7 year old’s clothes in it.  There’s even a hidden pocket, in the tote, to keep my pills in.  This is great!This bag, is by far, the best bag I’ve received.  I love Thirty-One, and can’t stress that enough.  In The Clear Tote is going to be the bag of the week.  When I take it with me, to the waterpark, everyone will envy it.  I’ll love telling them where to get their bag at.

I also received The Getaway Tote.  My sister is flying to Myrtle Beach, and this is her bag, for the plane.  It’s the perfect size, to get on flight, and she will be able to put all the necessities in it.  I love this bag, as well.  However, she asked me to use it, so how could I say no?  The size is 14.75″H x 13.75″L x 6″D, which will be great to put her phone, ipad, etc. in.

I also received the Pinch Top Eyeglass Case, which will keep my sunglasses protected from getting scratched.  It even matches my In The Clear Tote.  Isn’t that sweet?  I wear big, funky glasses, and they fit in this wonderful case.  There’s even a zipper on it, to keep  your identification, credit cards, etc.  This really is the top of the line Sunglass/Eyeglass case.

The Crossbody Organizing Tote is wonderful, too.  It’s going in the backseat, with Jacob, Grandma, and myself.  That way I have snacks, drinks, and games at my fingertips.  It’s a 4 hour drive, to where we are going, so this is the perfect bag for the backseat.  Very spacious, but won’t take up much room, in the backseat.

There are different styles for these bags, but the features are all the same.  And, any of them will do for you, what they are going to do for me.  My husband calls me a bag lady.  I never turn down a great bag, and Thirty-One has never disappointed me, when it comes to a great bag.

WHIPPED BODYCARE: THE WEIGHT IS OVER!

Posted on March 10, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Reviews women

My 20 year old, daughter, loves Mangiacotti Whipped Body Wash.  She said it leaves her feeling extra clean, and she even uses it to shave.  She said the whipped feeling gets deep down in, and leaves her feeling sparkling good.  I’ve tried it, as well, and love it too.  I agree with her 100%.  And, agree that our fans have to try this.  We received the Ocean scent, and it is great.

Mangiacotti is introducing two new breakthrough skincare products, Whipped Body Wash and Whipped Body Lotion. Lightweight yet incredibly luxurious, they provide hydration and intensive moisturizing along with other key features and benefits:

Pur Attitude for your Skin

Posted on February 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Reviews women

We recently tried Pur Attitude, and it’s fantastic.  My 20 year old loves it.  She said the Foaming Bamboo Scrub is Amazing!  I love the Cellufirm lotion.  It makes my skin tighter, and more firm.  These products can both be purchased on Pur Attitude, and you can get free shipping.

The Foaming Bamboo Scrub (almond) not only smells good, but works great.  It exfoliates rough, dry, and dead skin debris, preparing your skin for the optimum benefits of moisturizing. 

Sarah says she loves the way the Bamboo Scrub leaves her skin feeling.  She says, “it’s like no other product out there.”  She loves that her skin is soft and not rough after using it.

Benefits include:

  • Invigorating, foaming scrub
  • Sloughs away dead skin cells
  • Eliminates rough flaky skin

The CelluFirm Lotion leaves my skin feeling tighter, and less wrinkled.  I love the way I feel after using the Cellufirm Lotion.  I’m going to let my Mother in law try it, and get her opinion, as well.  I will update this post in the near future.

Benefits include:

  • Firmer Looking Skin
  • Visibly Reduces Dimpling
  • Clinically Proven Technology

All of the products at Pur Attitude, I’ve got to try.  They all look appealing, and since these work, I’m sure the entire line will.  I’ll be placing an order soon.
