Healthy Now Colon Cleanse Detox Plus {A Review}


 Healthy Now Colon Cleanse

Detox Plus

{A Review}

 
Okay....sooooooooooo Ummmm.......... Well...........
 
 Okay, okay...
Talking about a colon cleanse can be a little well , private or plain down embarrassing.
To tell you the truth, I have never done one before this, thought about - yes, actually done one- no.
 
The honest truth is because I have heard horror stories about having 'leaky butt'  during and I wanted to avoid that like people avoid the plaque.  
 
So until now I have never ever done one, and if I would have had this cleanse all along I wouldn't have been so scared.
 
 Now here is a slight moment of TMI...
 but you need to know in order to understand...
 I don't hardly go a day with out being bloated, gassy, and my bowl movements are so non-consistent that I almost feel like throwing a party when they are normal for more then 6 hours.
Okay TMI is over you can uncover your eyes now.
 
 I was worried about cramps, having to run to the bathroom all the time, and it kinda just 'hitting' me out of no where.  But I didn't have any of that!
 No cramping, no overly bloated with gas and horrible pressure, and no running and diving for the bathroom. And it didn't just hit me like the broad side of a barn either.

It just felt like I had to go to the bathroom- like normal. Now how well it cleaned me out, I defiantly was empty, that's for sure. But I felt sooo much better after and lighter.
I only took one that day.
That is all I have really taken is 1pill a day for about a week now and I am so much more regular. I figured that 7 days of taking the cleanse would be good enough and when I feel sluggish, weighed down, or overly bloated I will do this again for a couple of days and flush my system out again.
 I like that these pills aren't full of chemicals and things I can't even pronounce.
 
 Here is what the company has to say:
  • Mild but Extremely Effective Laxative - Relieves Constipation, Gas, & Indigestion. 
  • 90 Veg Caps
  • Promotes Digestive Health and Healthy Weight Loss. 
  • All Natural Herbal Detox Formula - NO Artificial Ingredients - The Purest Total Body Cleanse

Phytoceramides Skin Therapy Supplement {A Review}


Phytoceramides Skin

Therapy Supplement

{A Review}                



Okay I have to be openly honest I wasn't to sure that these would work and I was pretty skeptical about them. I mean PLEASE for the love of all that's good don't ask me to pronounce the name out loud!

 I was thank goodness proven wrong! HA!
I haven't been taking them for very long and even though my face still breaks out I can tell the difference in my skin from fine lines ( I have hooooooorrible crow's feet already started from squinting), my dark under eye circles- which are now lighter, to the younger looking skin on my neck and hands.

I think that the longer I take this the better things can only get for me! Who doesn't want better looking skin? And doing it from the inside out.... easy! They come in a pill form and are easy to sallow.
I'm not always one to keep up with the 'latest' thing, but to my slight surprise phytoceramides are becoming huge in popularity, as people turn to more natural things
Which I am a HUGE fan of! BTW - this is a product that is made here in the USA!

Here is what the company has to say


 
  •  TABLETS THAT TRANSFORM YOUR SKIN AT NO RISK:We take great pride in the RESULTS our phytoceramides produce and we are so SURE that it will work for you that we offer a 100% NO QUESTIONS ASKED money back guarantee. If you're not delighted with your results just let us know and we will refund 100% of the purchase price.
  • THE SECRET TO A NATURAL FACELIFT WITHOUT SURGERY: Don't take our word for it, Dr Oz called phytoceramides the natural facelift. He illustrated how phytoceramides work from the inside out, hydrating skin and binding it together making it thicker. This adds fullness and thickness to the skin, defying natural aging, chasing away wrinkles and flaky dry skin.
  • 100% PEACE OF MIND WITH USA MADE PHYTOCERMIDES: No need to risk buying phytoceramides from Asia or other continents. Purely Holistic phytoceramides is produced right here in the USA. We ONLY use 100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS, with no nasty fillers or artificial ingredients - our capsules ARE SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS. All our products are manufactured adhering to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) giving you 100% peace of mind.
  • GLUTEN FREE AND FORTIFIED WITH VITAMINS A, C, D and E FOR MAXIMUM RESULTS: Our product is gluten free and has 100% of your DV of vitamin A, C, D and E improving your overall wellness as well as the long term health of your skin
  • SAY GOODBYE TO WRINKLES WITH SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN PHYTOCERAMIDE:Purely Holistic phytoceramides use rice based phytoceremides which have been clinically PROVEN to be SUPERIOR to Liowheat based Phytoceremides.
  • CLINICAL STUDIES proved that rice based phytoceramides were up to 33% more effective at improving the signs of aging skin than Wheat phytoceremides. Our phytoceramides hydrate, thicken and bind the skin from the inside out. This reverses the aging process that naturally occurs with skin making YOUR SKIN fuller, thicker while REDUCING wrinkles and crow's feet WITHOUT the STARTLED look you can get with Botox.

Kids E-mail { A Review}


Kids E-mail

{A Review}


Do you have kids that use computer? Without supervision?  Or do you have children that want to e-mail grandparents and family but you don't want them on your personal e-mail account?

 I am one of those people!
I have a daughter who is old enough to use the computer without me standing over her shoulder, but we still want to be able to keep a close eye on her on-line activates. My daughter is 13 and she had been begging to be allowed to have an email account so that she could email friends and family on her own.

 We still won't allow her to have a social media account anywhere I.E. Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We just don't feel like she has the maturity we think she needs just yet, to be a cautious as she needs to be.

The answer to this problem is Kids Email , she gets an account but everything sent to and from the account have copies sent to my email address as well. This way I know if she is crossing a line with her friends that she shouldn't be. Yes, she knows that I get copies of all her emails. She understands that we want her to be as safe as possible in person and online and this is a way to help gain our trust to get a Facebook account in a year like she wants.

We were so impressed with the service that we even made an account for our 8 year old son when he asked.

They can only e-mail the addresses that I have logged into their address book, and those are the only addresses that can e-mail them back.
They have their own log in, so that they can't get into each other's accounts. There is a kids, teen, and parent log in.
And since I made their log ins I know the passwords, but my parent account gives me excess anyways.
And now they even have an app so your kids can email on the go! Like when you are on a family trip and they just can't wait to send that picture to their Grandparent!

My family loves being able to email pictures and daily tid-bits back an forth with the kids, and I love that they are building up responsible trust with their Father and I.
Now this is a paid service and it's about $40.00 or so a year, but to us that's a small price to pay to know that our kids are safe sharing online.
You can try it for FREE first though to see if it's a good fit for your family? How awesome is that?!
 
A little about the company:
KidsEmail.org was established in 2009. The concept and idea was written and designed to be a part of the solution to protect children and families online. KidsEmail.org was designed to compliment our Internet Safety product called My Kids Browser. My Kids Browser is an internet browser that only allows kids to go to websites that you choose.

Here are some highlights of the program:
THE MAIL QUEUE
The Mail Queue allows the parent to intercept an email that failed the safety rules that you set for your child (such as someone not in their contact list attempting to send them an email). The parent can then approve the email to be sent to their child or deny and remove the email from the mail queue

TIME RESTRICTIONS
You can choose to restrict times of the day and days of the week that your child can login. You can even ground them for a certain period of time and display a custom message from you when they attempt to log in!

GPS TRACKER
For Kids that use our free mobile app on a GPS enabled mobile device, get a historical location of where your kids have been.

BLOCK SENDERS
If you allow your child to receive email from anyone, you can still block specific people by adding them to a custom blacklist.

Mia Mariu's NEW Skin Nourishing Oil {A Review} + Giveaway


 

Mia Mariu`

Skin Nourishing Oil

+ Giveaway
{A Review}

 

 
 
 
I have never been one to use any type of oil product on my skin other then coconut oil because I tend to break out very easily. So I figured I would just avoid oily things and it would help right? Well, not so much! I still break out regardless and now because my skin is drier since I am getting older, my skin works over time to produce oil to keep it's self  hydrated.  Which in turns makes me break out more....
The never ending mad cycle!
 Well when I was sent this skin nourishing oil I thought I would try it out on my face first.  It worked well on helping to keep my skin soft but I did break out some, but I honestly don't know if it was the oil causing it or just my skin having a flair up. I then started using it on my elbows because they are like alligator skin  on the best of days. And they are sooo soft now! I  love it! This is defiantly a product I will keep using hands down!  
And the company has been wonderful and agreed to give away a bottle!!

3 UNi 100% Organic Pure Moroccan Argan Oil { A Review}


3 UNi 100% Organic Pure Moroccan Argan Oil 

{A Review}



I LOVE argan oil for my hair, when I was asked to review this by UNi I was super excited. I have always just bought mine in stores like Walmart, target etc... although I like the brands that I was buying and they do wonders for my hair I knew that they were not 100% argan oil. It's something that I have never been able to try out before now- 100% argan oil.
 Before I tried it this is what the company told me about their product:

UNi Argan Oil is 100% pure organic made from Moroccan Argan Trees. This naturally light scented oil helps protect, hydrate, and restore elasticity to all hair types. Large concentration of fatty acids and antioxidants help restore the appearance of dull skin, hair, body, scalp and hands. Reduces and removes frizzy and damaged hair. Excellent for cuticles - helps prevent cracking and peeling of nails. Can treat all skin types as well.

Our fast absorbing light weight oil is smooth, and NON greasy compared to other brands.
Highest quality of oil production, it is cold pressed and unroasted. Comes rich in Vitamin E (Tocopherols) and Omega 6 (Linolenic Acids).
NO strong odors. Our 100% organic Argan oil has a light nutty smell and is fragrance free.
USDA and ECOCERT certification means high purity and authentic.
Can be used on sensitive and non-sensitive skin to reduce age spots and boost skin tones.
Manufactured in the Kingdom of Morocco and Packaged in the USA.
UNi Argan Oil comes in a beautiful smooth dark glass bottle with easy access dropper.
UNi Argan Oil are manufactured and bottled throughout the year to ensure freshness and quality. Manufactured date is printed on every bottle with a shelf-life of 36 months

This oil has really lived up to it's name- liquid gold. I use it on my hair every time I get out of the shower and it has helped make my hair so soft and manageable and keep it that way. It has stopped my hair from breaking off so much too. I use it on my hands, knees, and elbows as well to help keep my skin soft. I will be buying this again, no doubt. And I this will be one of my go to gifts I place in Christmas baskets this year as well for some of the girls that I know. The smell is so organic and soft so you don't have to worry about it making your hair smell funky either.
It comes in a cute little glass bottle with a dropper so that you don't use to much. It honestly doesn't hardly take any at all to use all that you need to for your hair and what ever else you are using it on- just a couple of drops.




I found this great article over at MindBodyGreen 
 


10 Simple Beauty Uses for Organic Argan Oil
Argan oil is produced from an Argan nut coming from Argan tree, which only grows in Southwestern Morocco. 
Local Berber women work in fair-trade cooperatives where they hand-crack the argan nuts in between two stones, a technique they’ve used for centuries. Instead of being put through a machine, the raw argan kernels are hand-extracted from the hard shell, hand-ground in a stone grinder, hand-kneaded for hours and first cold-pressed into the oil. It takes one woman three days to make just one liter of oil. This is why argan oil is so valuable.
In 1998, the Argan forest in Morocco was designated a UNESCO protected biosphere so argan oil is sustainable.
If you want to de-clutter your cabinet and simplify your beauty routine, argan oil can become your go-to beauty elixir from head-to-toe. It’s chockfull of essential fatty acids, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that promote your overall health by moisturizing, softening as well as protecting your face and hair from sun damage – without harmful toxins and Parabens.
 
Below are 10 ways to use organic argan oil in your daily life:
1. Face Moisturizer - After cleansing morning and/or night, massage a few drops of argan oil directly onto your face and neck. Since argan is considered a dry oil, it absorbs quickly and is not greasy. If you want to use it as a serum, apply your night cream after the oil absorbs into the skin.
 
2. Hydrating Toner – Add a few drops of argan oil to your favorite facial toner to hydrate and tone simultaneously. You can make your own toner by adding a few drops of argan oil to Rose or Orange Blossom water.
 
3. Rejuvenating & Brightening Face Mask – Add a few drops of argan oil to your store-bought mask. Alternatively, make your own mask by mixing 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 3 teaspoons of Greek-style yogurt, 1 tablespoon of honey and 3 drops of argan oil in a bowl. Apply on a clean, dry face and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
 
4. Exfoliating Lip Scrub and Moisturizer – To smooth and moisturize your lips, add a few drops of argan oil and vanilla extract to fine brown sugar. Lightly massage into lips using circular motion and rinse off.
 
5. Face Glow – Add a drop or two of argan oil to your foundation, bronzer or tinted moisturizer for a dewy, luminous glow.
 
6. Leave-on Conditioner – After the shower, while your hair is still wet, add a few drops of argan oil to your hair, ends and scalp to hydrate and moisturize. It’s especially nourishing if your hair is dry
from daily use of a blow dryer, straight-iron or curling iron.
7. Hair Styling Shine – When your hair is dry, use as a styling product by adding a few drops of argan oil to the palms of your hand. Rub your hands together and run your fingers through your hair to create shine and tame frizz. You only need a small amount. It lasts a long time.
 
8. Overnight Hair Treatment – Massage a generous amount of argan oil into your hair, ends and scalp. Wrap your hair and leave it on while you sleep. In the morning, wash your hair and you’ll have luminous, soft locks.
 
9. Cuticle and Heel Softener – Massage a few drops of argan oil into your cuticles to soften, moisturize and encourage nail growth. Use as an overnight treatment to nourish cracked heels by working a good amount into your feet and toes. Cover with socks and wake up to supple feet.
 
10. Body and Bath Oil – Add a few drops of argan oil directly onto your skin, into the bath or body lotion. It’s safe to use on a baby and to help minimize stretch marks on a pregnant belly too

True Sol -100% Pure Yacon Syrup { A Review}


True Sol -100% Pure Yacon Syrup

{A Review}



I have some potential health problems, and what I mean by potential is that doctors tell me I'm "borderline" on several things. One of those things include my blood sugar which will lead to diabetes.
 Before this review I had never heard of Yacon syrup, so before I agreed to do this review I looked it up. It was amazing what people were saying about this stuff and what it did for them!
After reading about it I was excited to try it out!

This Yacon syrup is by True Sol. It's 100% pure and the taste is like molasses. I personally like it. Sweet but not to over the top sweet. And it's a natural sweet, not like it's loaded with refined sugars. Since it's suggested to take a teaspoon every morning, I try and do it as one of the first things in the morning. I also always try to drink a glass of water in the morning as well and tend to do these at the same time.
 I have been taking these for a couple of weeks now and I do seem to have more energy. I honestly don't know if it's helping my blood sugar or not- I hate checking it. I hate having sore fingers all the time. And no matter how often I do it my fingers can never seem to adapt and adjust.

But with three kids, a remodel going on, a photography business, and 3 dogs..... I could use all the energy I can wrangle up!      

 
 
I also am working to lose 50 pounds - it's the last of the weight I gained through out having my three kids. I don't think I have been taking this long enough to say if it is helping me with my weight loss or not. I do exercise and although the scale hasn't been going down I have went down a couple of pants sizes, before I started taking Yacon. But if it helps I'm not going to complain! HA HA

I found this information about Yacon at Yacon Facts:

Yacon Syrup Nutritional Information


First of all, let’s talk a little bit about where yacon syrup comes from. Yacon is a root crop commonly grown in Peru and the Andes of South America. Yacon is a distant relative of the sunflower and artichoke family. However, yacon is not grown for its seeds or flower, rather it is grown for its naturally sweet but low-calorie edible roots.
Among other root crops, yacon’s calorie content is the lowest at 54 calories–which is over two times lower than a sweet potato (123 calories) and less than a potato (77 calories)! Because of this, yacon is a suitable nutritious diet food.

yacon-tuber
The Yacon Tuber contains:
Water (85-90%)
Traces of phosphorus (22%),
11.1% glucide
0.8% protein
Fiber 0.6%
Lipids 0.6%
Cellulose 0.5%
And also essential elements like iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, carotene, magnesium, and Vitamins A, B1, B2, and C.

Yacon Syrup Glycemic Index

Taking after yacon, the yacon syrup glycemic index is low, only 1!
How does that compare with with other popular sweeteners? Let’s see.
Glycemic Index:
 Yacon Syrup Nutritional Information
  • Maple Syrup – 54
  • Honey – 50
  • Cane Sugar – 43
  • Coconut Palm Sugar – 35
  • Brown Rice Syrup – 25
  • Fructose – 25
  • Agave Syrup -15
  • Xylitol – 12
  • Yacon Syrup – 1


Out of all the sugars, yacon syrup scores best in the glycemic index for sweeteners that are sugar based. Its sweetness comes from fructooligosaccharides (a type of sugar with a very low glycemic index), which makes it essentially the only raw, natural, low-calorie and low-glycemic sweeter available.

Yorkie Spalsh & Shine { A Review} + Giveaway!!


 

Yorkie Splash & Shine

{A Review}




We are pet lovers here in our house, I was gifted an Yorkie mix puppy after my older beloved Yorkie mix was hit and killed by a car when I was 36 weeks along with our youngest son Max. I was beyond heart broken at the loss of her but Bella was a new puddle of joy to focus on.

 And I fell in love instantly and our love is still going strong.....

 But... there is one thing about having a dog with long hair.. it's a pain to keep clean and up.  It get dirty and tangled allllll the time and since she is spending a lot of time outside since it's so nice out this summer it's even harder to keep nice.

But I was lucky enough to be able to try out this great product called Yorkie Splash and Shine. They sent me shampoo, conditioner, and detangling spray. The ingredients are all natural from what I can tell.
 The Shampoo had a very pleasant smell to it, kind of like my all natural shampoo that I use from a local store.
Some information from their site on the Shampoo:

List of ingredients in Yorkie Splash:
Saponified Organic Oils of Coconut, Olive and Jojoba
Glycerin/Vegetable Gum Extract
Fragrance Oil Blend
Organic Aloe Vera
Rosemary Extract
{We mix our shampoo by hand, five gallons at a time. So, there may be slight variances in color and scent}

This did get all the dirt and grime off of her {she is a bit of a pig pen!}I used warm water to rise her, there was no need to shampoo her more then once. It even got all the grime off of her skin not just her hair, which I really like. After her shampoo her coat did have a slight waxy feeling to it, but according to the web site, that is normal. And the waxy feeling went away once her coat was dry.

Then after that I used the conditioner on her- because there is no way to brush her hair with out using some sort of conditioner on her. She just has to much hair.
When I opened the bottle of conditioner I was hit with a wave of what smelled just like fruit punch to me! It almost made me laugh!
Here is some information on the conditioner: 

Ingredients in Yorkie Shine:
Aloe barbadensis (Aloe) Juice
Cetearyl Alcohol
Ricinus communis (Castor Seed) Oil
Fragrance Oil Blend 
Stearalkonium Chloride
Phenoxyethanol
Hydrolized Wheat Protein
d-Calcium Pantothenate (Panthenol Vitamin B5)
 
They also sent detangling spray which I am completely in love with! It made getting through her coat so much more pain less! And we all want our pets to be in a little pain as possible. She loves laying on my lap and getting brushed.... as long as there isn't any knots you have to work though! So the detangling spray made my job of getting her brushed out a lot easier. It too smells like fruit punch to me! Maybe it's just my nose....
 Here is some information about the detangler:

 

List of Ingredients in Yorkie Sheen:

Distilled Water
Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Juice

Cetearyl Alcohol

Ricinus communis (Castor Seed) Oil

Stearalkonium Chloride, Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Phenoxyethanol
Kosher Vegetable Glycerin
Hydrolized Wheat Protein
d-Calcium Pantothenate (Panthenol Vitamin B5)
Limnanthes alba (Meadowfoam) Oil
Salix nigra (Black Willow Bark) Extract
Rosmarinus officnalis (Rosemary Oleoresin)
Azadirachta indica (Neem) Oil

 
I like that she is still a lot easier to brush out even several days later, which using the detangler has helped with.
The smell lasts for more then just a day or two also, which I really enjoy. She doesn't just smell like dirt and the other dogs now when she comes inside to cuddle!

 Wow it's been review mania up in here lately!
So I thought I would post on how everything is going on here before I post another review.
Don't get me wrong I LOVE being blessed and getting all these great products to review, but I miss talking about life and whats going on in it.

The kids are getting ready to go back to school soon which means that things are getting a little crazy. Back to school clothes shopping, getting everyone's bags, binders, and pencils. And getting back on the correct sleeeeeeeeping schedule- the last one being the hardest of all.

http://www.rue21.com/store/jump/category/Girls-Dresses/cat50004

Here are some of the cool things that we were able to find for Morgan:
 
We found this Glow in the Dark long sleeve at Children's Place for $9.00
And we found this awesome short sleeve T at Children's Place for only $4.99

Matcha Green Tea Powder {A Review}


Matcha Green Tea Powder

Kiss Me Organics

{A Reivew}



I recently got to try out the Match Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me Organics

My husband is a HUGE green tea fan. Every time we go to Starbucks it's the same thing - a custom made green tea frapp {Green tea, skinny, 1/2 base, soy milk, 7 Splendas, no whip} it's the friendliest diabetic  frapp that we could come up with. And it doesn't ever give him any problems when it's made correctly.

We were excited to get to try out this powder - just for the simple fact we could now make the frapps at home!
We made them with ice, 1 teaspoon of green tea powder, almond milk, and a little bit of sweetener. My husband's reaction to the first drink was "This taste better then Starbucks!" He was over the top excited and happy with the powder.

I love that it takes so little of the powder to make an entire blender full of fraps. just one {1} teaspoon is all we put in. I love that it the powder is organic. I hate when you love something only to turn around the package and find that what it is made out of is things that only a scientist can pronounce out loud!
 I can't wait to try this as hot tea, but right now it's just to hot outside to drink anything hot. I even take my morning coffee iced lately.
And I haven't tried to bake with this as of yet, but I plan on it!


There is none of that here, just simple pure ingredients.
Green tea has so many health benefits:
  "Recent studies have shown green tea can potentially have positive effects on everything from weight loss to liver disorders to type 2 diabetes." - Medical News Today

Even long after we use all that was sent to us to try out we plan on ordering this to always keep around. This is a staple in our drink line up in our home from now on.

Propresser Garlic Press { A Review}


Propresser Garlic Press

{A Review}



I got to try out and test the Propresser Garlic Press  by Orblue

First I have to say WOW... completely imPRESSive... Ha ha see what I did there...? Okay, okay I'm no Jeff Foxworthy but you know you smiled a little...

It's amazing how easy this press is to use. You can fit a whole section/clove of garlic in to the press, you don't even have to worry about peeling it first just press down .. POOF!

All pressed and ready to go! I was able to press about 7 cloves in just a matter of moments to mix in to softened butter for garlic bread.
We think fresh garlic taste sooo much better then anything else we can get around here - dry, already diced up, etc...

This press is currently on sale for $18.99 {Ready to buy it? Links are at the bottom of the post}

I'm not sure what you think is high or low for things like garlic presses but I'm cheap and when I say cheap I mean Cheeeeeeap. I don't think this is a press I would have just gone out and bought on my own. And honestly I would have been missing out- BIG time. I can use ONE hand to press the garlic though even when it's unpeeled, it completely presses out all of it and it washes clean no problem. Since this is made of stainless steal I just rinsed it off with warm soapy water and left it out to dry. That's it! It was all clean and ready for the next time that I went to go use it. Don't miss out on this amazing press! If your family loves garlic as much as mine this is a kitchen must have!!!
