Check out the Products at Shapellx, You will love them!

Posted on October 28, 2019 in 2019 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews women

Shapellx.com is a great online store, and their products are delightful.  Sarah, my 22 year old, daughter, loves the shape wear.  She says it fits perfectly, and it doesn’t make her feel like she’s unable to breathe.

The high waist shaping shorts are wonderful.  They even come in Plus Size, perfect for me. The shorts will fit anybody, depending on which pair you get.  The pair, shown above, are Plus size for example, and they are very attractive looking.  Sarah loves them, too, because they lift her behind.  She’s not a Plus Size girl, but they fit her, and me, both.  They are awesome, and the fact that they aren’t uncomfortable, like most shape wear, is amazing.

The shaping Bodysuits for women are the bomb.  My daughter loves this tummy tucking suit, shown above.  She can’t get enough of it, she’s going to school to be a teacher, and she wears it, to teach, every day.  There is a nude colored one, that she wears constantly.  The nude looks good, under anything.  This bodysuit has made all the difference in making her look like a supermodel.  She’s not really a big girl, but now she looks really thin.  I can’t wait to get a bodysuit, for myself, in Plus Size.

Slips and Camis are available, as well.  You really have to check this site out.  They have everything shape fitting you will ever need, and at a great price.

Feel like you did, back in the day, or like you want to for the rest of your life.  I’ve always felt overweight, but with Shapellx, I feel just right.  It holds me in perfectly, and the only people that know are my family.  They make me feel like I did when I was in high school, and super skinny.

For Halloween, they are offering up to 60% off some amazing products.  You will love them as much as the two of us do.

There’s always free shipping, if you spend $60.  And, right now, they are running a great deal.  And, it’s a great discount when, where the more you buy, the more you save.  For instance, buy 3 items, save $15.

Desert Essence is Wonderful For Your Skin

Posted on July 10, 2019 in Reviews women

I’ve been using Desert Essence for about 2 weeks now, and my skin has never been softer, or more smooth.  I love the feel it leaves on my skin.  The Body Oil is great for in the shower.  While the Body Scrub rocks when out of the shower.  My 22 year old, daughter, tried it as well, and loves the formula.  Needless to say, we will be sticking with this company for years to come.  The prices are right, and the product is so great!

The Body Oil comes in 3 wonderful scents, including:  Jojoba & Sweet Almond, Jojoba & Sunflower, and Jojoba & Coconut with Chamomile.  These are all lovely, but I use the Jojoba & Sweet Almond.  It smells wonderful, and leaves me feeling nice, and silky.  Each formula has it’s own sweet result.  Check out the details here.

The Body Scrub is sweet!  It keeps my skin feeling fresh, and smelling delightful.  I love the feel it leaves on my skin.  There are also 3 formulas for the Body Scrub.  There is one for sensitive skin, that is the one I’m using.  And, two other formulas.  You can check them out here, as well.

We are going on a family Vacation next month, and I need to replenish my stock of Desert Essence, to take along.  Four days can be a long time, if you aren’t prepared for keeping your skin hydrated, etc.

When you purchase from Desert Essence, you aren’t just buying clean, green personal care products. You’re helping us to create a future in which every business decision benefits the planet and all of its inhabitants. We are proud to be a Certified B Corporation, which upholds our vision of using business to create a world of good. https://www.desertessence.com/social-responsibility

Wellements Organic Baby Medicines

Posted on April 30, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide kids Reviews

I love Wellements Organics, and have been using it for years.  My little one used to use the Gripe Water.  Whenever he was fussing, we would give it to him.  Now that he’s a little older, I have passing these products on to some new parents.  Their impression is just as strong as mine.  Wellements Organics works wonders for your child.  All products were new in box, when handed to the new parents.

The Wellements Organic Gripe Water is so fabulous, and it’s for new babies.  When they are fussy, just give them a 1/2 teaspoon, and you’ll see the difference.  We used to put it in our son’s bottle.  He’s suck that bottle down, and he was then pleasant.

There’s  Nighttime Formula of the Gripe Water also.  It’s really effective, when used properly.

Wellements makes an Organic Baby Chest & Foot Rub, that’s perfect for any little guy/girl, with a cold.  There’s no menthol is this rub, so it’s safe, along with Non GMO.  We loved this for Jacob, as well.  And, I’m sure the parents we are passing it to, will love it just as much. What makes this product so wonderful are the scents of eucalyptus and lavender oils.

The Wellements Baby Cough & Mucus Syrup is wonderful, as well.  It makes the mucus lessen in just hours.  We loved this product, when our son was 4+ months.

There is also a nighttime formula.

Oh, but my favorite is Baby Move.  It promotes healthy bowel movements.  We loved this, when Jacob couldn’t go potty.

Wellements has a Baby Tooth Oil, that works wonders.  It’s got a soft scent, and doesn’t use those harsh chemicals.  You will love this formula.

Wellements All Purpose Balm is another fantastic product, and the happy, new parents really love this product most.  They love that it soothes their young one, and it’s good from head to toe.

To learn more about the above Organic, Wellements products, and many others, please go to their site.  It’s listed above and below, for your convenience.

Declutter Your Space with MindSpace

Posted on April 18, 2019 in 2019 Easter Gift Guide 2019 Summer Gift Guide Reviews

We love MindSpace!  Their products helped me declutter my mancave in just a few minutes.  And, I’ve even taken a few products to work.  They are on my desk, and everyone that comes in, comments on how neat things look now.  I need to order some more products for my 7 year old’s bedroom.  He really needs to declutter.  My wife wants a few products for her office as well.  Mindspace is a great company, with some great products.

Whether it’s your Beauty Space, Home Space, Office Space, etc. they have the right products for you.  I love my file holder.  I can keep my bills separated now, where I was having difficulties before.  And, I’m also able to keep all warranties, for products, in a file, as well.  Mindspace has it all.

The Multistep File Organizer is so cool.  I love that there’s a new step for each file, well, I’ll be honest, I put a few files on each step.  This has been my way of organizing all the papers, in my mancave.  It’s easy, functional, and it’s out of the way.

The Compact Organizer Caddy is my favorite product though.  I’ve been able to take all the junk, in the mancave, and find a right spot for it.  My pens, and pencils, for when I do my checking account, my push pins, for if I need to hang a lottery ticket up, etc.  This really has made a huge difference in my room.

I love the 3 tier desk tray, as well.  It makes it so easy, for a place to put all of my printer paper, notebooks, etc.  This product is so cool, you need to get this.  My wife is jealous, and wants another one, for her office.

Now Out on Blu-Ray & DVD: Nancy Drew And The Hidden Staircase

Posted on April 3, 2019 in Movies Reviews

***“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”***

When I was growing up, I loved reading Nancy Drew books.  I’d check one out, in the school library, every library day.  Now, for WB to make a movie, that’s special to me.  My 7 year old, and I, sat down to watch Nancy Drew And The Hidden Staircase just last night.  It was intriguing.  I loved it, and so did he.  “Mystery…has met its match” in this movie.  I can’t wait to watch it again!

 

The Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital can be found at any store now.  Nancy Drew was released yesterday.  Make sure you go buy yours soon.  You don’t want to miss this.  And, I know the women, who were into Nancy Drew growing up, will love this movie.

 

Here’s the summary:

The iconic mystery solving teenager from the classic Nancy Drew books is back with an all-new feature length film that will keep you guessing until the very end! Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Nancy Drew And The Hidden Staircase on Digital starting March 26, 2019 and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack & DVD on April 2, 2019. Executive Produced by Ellen DeGeneres, the film stars Sophia Lillis (IT and “Sharp Objects”), Sam Trammell (“True Blood” and “This is Us”), and Linda Lavin (“The Good Wife” and“Alice”) and follows Nancy Drew in her new town, making new friends and on a mission to solve the case! The film carries a suggested retail price of $19.99 for the Digital, $19.98 for the DVD and $28.98 for the Blu-ray Combo Pack.

After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter in River Heights. But for 16-year-old Nancy Drew, life in a small town is mighty dull. She longs for excitement, adventure, and the chance to make a difference. Nancy gets that opportunity when she is asked to help solve the ghostly activity at the Twin Elms mansion. Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding lightbulbs and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high-school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner Malcolm Colfax is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends George and Bess, along with local “mean girl” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case!

I loved the book, and the movie.  This brought back priceless memories, of childhood.

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.

Welch’s Fruit Snacks, For Easter, Make a Great Snack!

Posted on March 27, 2019 in 2019 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

Yesterday was my son’s Annual Spring Party, at School.  I used Welch’s Fruit Snacks, for Easter, as a snack.  They went over great.  The kids all loved them.  With 28 treats in every box, we had enough for the entire class.  We had so much fun, checking out the figures, and flavors.  We even made a game out of it.  You know, who had the most bunnies, or chicks, or reds, or oranges?  It was a snack.  These children are in Second Grade, and so smart!  And, they know what’s good for them!

Welch’s are great for any age though, I even caught my 21 year old trying to steal her brother’s snacks.  It was a hoot.  She loves Welch’s too.

KEY PRODUCT FEATURES:

   * Made with REAL fruit
   * Fruit is our first ingredient
   * Gluten-free
   * No preservatives
   * Fat-free

Welch’s® Mixed Fruit Easter Fruit Snacks are available online at Target.com[2] as well as in-store at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, and other local retailers.

I’ve already gone to Target, and restocked my shelf, with Welch’s Easter Snacks, before they are all sold out.  They are so yummy, and taste just like real fruit, which is the first ingredient.  They won’t last in my house!  Especially sending them in my child’s lunch, and my college student’s lunch, as well.

So, make sure you run out to Target, and buy yours before they are gone.  You can also order them online, at Target.com.

Plus, these Welch’s would be perfect for those Easter Egg Hunts!

It’s Not Hansel And Gretel Children’s Book

Posted on February 27, 2019 in 2019 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

I love reading It’s Not Hansel and Gretel, to my 7 year old.  I love that the ending is happy, and it’s a “Happily Ever After” moment.  I never would’ve thought when I started to read the book, for the first time, that it would be a happy ending, because of “Hansel And Gretel” in the title.  But, it’s not your average Hansel and Gretel story.  It’s much more, and fun to read.

Josh Funk had a great idea, when writing this book, that is now sold on Amazon.  It’s truly a masterpiece.  Josh takes books, and does his own twist with them.  Check out his site, and follow him on Twitter @joshfunkbooks.  You’ll find some more truly amazing books, along with It’s Not Hansel And Gretel.

The Illustrations are fantastic!  Edwardian Taylor did a wonderful job.  I love how colorful, and meaningful they are.

It’s Not Hansel And Gretel will take your young child’s mind off of those video games, and school work, even if just for 10 minutes.  They will feel so happy, at least my son does, after reading such a wonderful book.

Jacob is in second grade, and sometimes, the weight of school gets to him.  I’ll tell him to stop, and we’ll read this book.  For 5 – 10 minutes, he’s so into this, and isn’t worried about the weight of school.  He’s a good student, but sometimes their assignments are hard.  This eases his mind.

I will have a contest posted tomorrow, for your own copy of this book.  Stay tuned.
