Creative BioScience 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge

I'm being sponsored by Creative BioScience on a 90-Day Weight Loss Challenge using hCG 1234 drops Kit.

I really hate exercising, I make up all these excuses on why I don't exercize.  Why I don't go to the gym, and why most things hurt my leg, and I have marshmellow foot the next day. What's your reason why you don't?  I've been reading great things about hcG 1234.

hCG 1234 are dietary supplement drops comprised of the most powerful amino acids that are clincally supported to aid in weight loss without exercise (of course exercise is great, but sometimes I just need to see results so I feel good, and push through.)

There is of course a diet to follow, for the diet Creative Bioscience has come up with a 500 Calories plan, along with using hCG diet support products, you may burn through fat stored in your body.  Some dieters using the kit have lost up to 1-2 lbs of fat a day. I so want those results.

I've been watching my calorie intake, and I've been eating much healthier for the last few months so I think bringing the hCG drops into it might speed up the weight loss and make me feel better about myself so I can start to exercise without the weight hurting my knee.

I know there will be work involved, and I really am on a life changing mission.  It would be extremely cool if I had others join with me, and we could help support eachother, and tell eachother what makes sticking to it easier.  I'd be completely down for that.  Never know unless you join the challenge.

Any one down for starting the 90-Day Weight Loss Creative BioScience Challenge with me? If you're a blogger you can apply to be part of the Challenge too. If this is something you'd be interested in, Just goto the Contest 90 form here.  That's how I learned about it. I'll be trying the hCG drops.  It's not just hCG drops, there are other kits.

Ozeri Eco Friendly Green Earth Ceramic NonToxic Pans

I've been trying to lead a more Eco-Friendly Green life style since my leg injury, I have to watch my intake on everything, that made me realize how many toxins our bodies actually come into contact with. What we don't even realize we are consuming by the things we cook with.

I started to question,  Where do you think those Teflon Non Stick Coatings go?

The more I read, the more it freaked me out on how there are over 15 different types of gases that can be released in those pans. It happens when a certain temperature is reached, say you left your pan on for preheating.. Seriously, Why did I buy those $50.00 pans? If It was coated with poison? It can also cause Polymer Flu Like symptoms, and can be fatal to birds.

I just refuse to cook with anything coated with Teflon anymore.  I'm not saying something else is healthier, YOU be the judge of that, I'm just saying, Those gases go somewhere.  There are way too many choices out there than to use those types of pans.

This is my new Baby, I use her about twice a day. Shes the 12" Green Earth Pan by Ozeri which is 100% PTFE and PFOA Free!!

Ozeri has a line of Green Earth Pans, From Sauce pans, to frying, even a Wok by Ozeri.  I've been using my 12" Pan for awhile now, and I seriously threw all my other pans away after reading what those nonstick coatings can do.  I didn't know.  I'm upset with myself that I bought those expensive nonstick pans, and never thought to question what made them nonstick.  I will never go back to them.

The layering of the ECozeri Ceramic Eco-Friendly pan is pretty high tech, and just worth buying just because of its technology for evenly cooking, and being nonstick by the layers of Ceramic Coating.

I've cooked just about everything in mine.  I used virgin coconut oil to fry Fried Chicken (Wheat Flour, with coconut shreds, so delish.) I even made Rice with Kale.  We eat a lot of Veggy Burgers, and they were great fried in the pan.

It's proved to me what It's capable of doing, and the price? There is always a deal on Amazon for the ECozeri, Ozeri Eco-Friendly Pans.  I'm getting myself the Wok soon.  I'm completely set on being healthier for my family, and I.  It's little steps like this that make a difference in the long run.

If you have any questions for Ozeri on their Ecozeri Green Earth Pans, You can message them on Ozeri Products Facebook Wall.

Below is actual Coconut Fried Chicken I made in my pan. It tastes just as good as it looks!  If you don't believe me, I've added my personal recipe too.


  • Pepper tsp
  • Season All  tsp
  • Nutmeg 1/2 tsp
  • Shredded Coconut  1/3 cup
  • Eggs
  • Wheat Flour  2 cups
  • Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Thawed Chicken Tenders

First mix the Flour, Pepper, Season All, Nutmeg in a bowl by itself, and mix, then add in the Shredded Coconut.  Mix again.

The eggs you crack into a separate bowl, mix, This is used to dip the chicken in, and then once the chicken is coated with egg, you dip it into the flour mix.  I do this about three times.

The frying pan I turn on High, and let the Coconut Oil heat up, always drop the breaded chicken tenders into a hot frying pan, warm, and just turned on will not work, and you might loose some of your breading. 

Once its in the pan, I turn the heat down to Medium, and let it cook, don't flip them too soon,  make sure they are nice and crispy before going to the other side.  Also, I move the tenders in the pan around, that makes sure I don't have to add more coconut oil, and nothing tried to stick in the Ecozeri Earth Pan.  I'm really loving that pan.

Verdict:  GREAT PAN!  Super easy to rinse clean. I received this pan for free for my honest, open, opinion. And, can be found on Amazon too! For under $40.00,I love amazon. I know others that love it too, just like me, I save up Amazon Giftcards I've earned from various Social Media Word Of Mouth sites, and then I splurge on Amazon with something I want.  Ozeri WOK is going to be my next Kitchen Splurge.

With the holidays coming up, if any of my family members or friends that read my blog, want to know what to get me, I need more of these pans, Thank you very much, Lol. You know I'm not joking too!

Harvey Prince Eau Flirt 100ML Review & Giveaway

Right now I am wearing Flirt on one wrist, and Ageless on the other.  Does that make me an Ageless Flirt? I love this perfume line.  The history of this perfume is a little different than just Oh, Someone wanted their own perfume line.  Nope, Harvey Prince came to life by two brothers who wanted to make a pure, inspired fragrance that their mom could wear.  Anybodies mom could wear.  Harvey Prince is family oriented. 100% Eco-Friendly, and High Quality ingredients. 

I'm somewhat a fragrance snob, I can't  stand strong, overly  musk "Mom Scents", we all know the kind.  Think back to that last smell you caught a whiff of some ones strong perfume as you were just walking through the store.  Even worse.. you are stuck behind them in line.  I never want to be that person.  I want a scent that is light, and makes me feel young.  I like to be playful, therefor my scent should be playful too.

Eau Flirt, Consists of Lavender, Pumpkin Pie, Citrus, Jasmine, Freesia, Ylang Ylang, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Amber, when combined, turns you into a Wicked Sparkling Seductress.  Flirt smells wonderful on my skin.  I've never been a person that bought something because it smelled good on another person.  I am that person that will wear it, test it on their own skin.  Some scents smell different, on different people. On my skin, once my skin reacts to it, I can smell the Freesia, Amber and Citrus more.

The spray on the 3.4 FL Oz for the Eau Flirt more so Mists you, than just spritz  I love that about it,  It only takes a few mists til I believed I smelled unstoppable.  

I also received a few samples of  Ageless, Hello and Yogini.  

The roll on Ageless is terrific, and so easy to use, this went straight into my purse.  Ageless consists of Pink Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Mango, Jasmine, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood.  At first smell I could really experience the Jasmine & Sandal Wood.  Once it's been on my skin, that's when I smell the Mango, and Grapefruit.

I love to wear the Ageless with Eau Flirt.  Combined I am an Unstoppable Immortal Goddess. 

Hello, and Yogini I received were the smaller sized spray samples, Both I enjoyed as well. 

Hello consists of,  Meyer Lemon, White Grapefruit, Satsuma Mandarin, Summer Forsythia, Pink Plumeria, Wild Verbena, Tahitian vanilla, Sensual Musk. What I loved about hello, was its Crisp, Freshness.  I loved the Citrus Aromas it possesses.  

Yogini consists of, Sandalwood, Golden amber, Sensual Incense, Egytian myrrh, Pink Grapefruit, Blackcurrant Buds, Lily of the valley, Star Jasmine, Rose Petals, Ylang, Ylang, Cardamom, Madagascar Vanilla.  

I'm really starting to favor the Yogini too,  The more I smell it on me, the more I really enjoy what scents I am experiencing when my skin heats up, and reacts to it.  I can smell the Lily Of The Valley, and Myrrh the most on me.

My overall impression of Harvey Prince is, this is a company that cares deeply about their senses, and scents.  They also strive for others to experience high quality ingredients that makes others feel great about ones self.  It's not just about throwing things together, but more so about that connection between the person wearing it.

Thank you Harvey Prince for making something so delicious for the senses, and real perfume for real women. "Feel Good, feel young, feel happy."

Also, Thank Harvey Prince on Facebook, & Twitter, about this GIVEAWAY!!! Yes!!!!!!! A Giveaway!!!!!! Three lucky followers will receive the same 100ml Eau Flirt Spritz (Est. Retail value $99.00) I received too! It really does not get any better than this.

TRUE Lemon Review & Giveaway

My family, and I have been eating healthier, and really don't want to waste calories on things that we drink, or spices/seasonings we add to our meals.  True Citrus is 100% Natural.  I enjoy all the flavors, it can be used for individual drinks,  or add to a bigger mixture, even the true lemon, and lime can be added when cooking, or baking.  

I can't drink the same exact thing everyday, or I get extremely bored, and will start to crave other drinks.  Those other drinks are full of sugar, and unwanted calories.  True Lemon helps me not want anything else since I can easily change up what I am drinking.

The baby, and I loved the raspberry lemonade, and the grapefruit.  It was easy to use, and delicious.  

The TRUE Grapefruit comes in individual packets that are easy to add to whatever you are making, say iced tea, or to make your own TRUEaid (like Koolaid), add fresh juice, and some extra Grapefruit kick to it for some Vitamin C.

I also steamed broccoli, and added the True Lemon Cooking Seasoning.  All I did was sprinkle the Lemon on, sprayed a little bit of 0 calorie butter spray, and used my rice cooker/steamer.  This also comes in Lime for cooking/baking, Next  time I buy Avocados I am going to try the Lime with them.

Really, whatever you eat now, instead of how some people add ketchup, or mustard, bbq sauce to everything they eat, maybe true True Lemon instead. 

There is Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, Lime, Raspberry Lemonade, Original Lemonade. 

I love True Lemon, and I think it's a great way to activate the taste buds while enjoying everyday tasks we already do.  People always say they don't eat healthy because the food tastes too plain.  Well, Try adding seasoning to the food that isn't horrible, or more calories than the meal itself.  Most wasted calories are consumed in drinks, and "toppings" for meals.

If you are bored with just regular chicken, Try Lime Chicken, with some cilantro, over rice.  

You can find great recipes on True Lemons website, and learn how to Live TRUE.  

I am excited that I get to do a Giveaway to one lucky follower for The Same TrueLemon Box I received, This box is by far one of my favorite things I've reviewed.  

To Enter you just have to Follow the Entries On RaffleCopter,  Giveaway begins August 28, 2012, & Ends September 12, 2012. U.S. Only!

YumEarth Organics Lollipops, Review & Giveaway

Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops are my new favorites.  I am completely amazed at how much flavor these have for being made with real fruit extracts, and no artificial colors.  There is also 100% Vitamin C daily value in each serving.  The concept of Yum Earth is just fantastic,  Created for Lollipop Candy fans, and by Dads.  Everything YumEarth makes is certified organic, or all natural, gluten-free, peanut-free, tree-nut free, and has no chemical colors, no artificial flavors, or no high fructose corn syrup.  Really, all of that is a bonus, because the Lollipops flavors are just so great they literally make your mouth water.  My taste buds were in over drive.  

My all time favorite flavor out of the Family Size Assorted Bag (40+ Lollies) were the Mango Tangos.  I may, or may not have shared a lot of those.. M I N E.. My 2nd favorite were the Very Very Cherry.  I've always loved sweet things, like jolly ranchers,  charms lollipops, nerds, etc,  and, in all honesty,  YumEarths Lollies has them all beat.

Arctic Zero Ice Cream, 150 Calorie Pints, Best Find EVER

Arctic Zero Review & Giveaway,

All I can really say about this ice cream is.. I LOVE THIS ICE CREAM.  I'm not sorry about the CAPS. Seriously, I absolutely love this ice cream, and it's really low calorie.

The brand is called Arctic Zero, I received a shipping cooler full for free ( 8 pints, and 2 boxes of bars.)  I was in ice cream heaven.  First off, I want to let you know when it says Arctic Zero... It really is arctic, as in It is so cold! I didn't know what to expect when I opened the cooler it was delivered in.  You know when its really hot out, and you open the freezer to get something? And, the coldness pours out, and hits you in the face.  That's what it was like.  I imagined I was in the arctic, ice pick in hand.. finding the most greatest discovery ever.

(My husband had fun playing with the dry ice thats at the bottom of the cooler)

As far as calories, each pint was only 150 calories.  Honest to Bob! Just 150 calories.  I am still in shock about that.  I loved all 8 flavors of the pints.

Here are my favorites in order:  Vanilla Maple,  Coffee,  Pumpkin Spice,  Mint Choco Cookie, Strawberry, Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut butter, and Cookies & Cream.

You can make Floats!! (Imagine Cream Soda, W/Vanilla Maple) or even just eat it straight from the pint.  I always have graham crackers around, so I made little ice cream sandwiches too.  Shakes,  Smoothies, Whatever tickles your sweet tooth pickle.

As for the boxes of bars, Those are only 85 calories.  I really enjoyed them.  They are chocolate coated, and my favorite was the orange icecream w/the chocolate.  For bars, theres orange, strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla.

What I love most about this product was I did not feel guilty for enjoying a snack.  It made me realize I can eat something others might consider a "reward."

This product, I actually went back out, and bought more of the Vanilla Maple, Coffee, and Pumpkin Spice.  My local Krogers carries the Pints, but not the bars. It's about $4-5.00 for the pints, which it is well worth being able to eat desert without feeling like a total fatty.  I loved it.  Every night I would portion my dinner, and add in the extra 150 calories so I can have ice cream.  Beats, wasting 500 calories on a bowl of something else.

If you are an avid Amazon shopper,  You can get free super saving shipping on Arctic Ice products, I'm always saving up Amazon Gift cards I've earned from various things I'm part of.  There is a store locator on Arctics Website too if you're interest in finding some in your area.

Overall Experience:   Greatest find, ever. My new favorite Ice cream go to snack.  I highly recommend the Vanilla Maple, Coffee & Pumpkin Spice.

Now it's giveaway time!! I am so happy to have been able to review Arctic Zero, and one lucky follower gets a shipping cooler full delivered to them from Arctic Zero too!! I'm also celebrating my Facebook 2,000 Likes!! What's better than a cooler full of ice cream!?!

An Abundance of Thanks To!

Sprout Robot Tells You When, And What To Plant In Your Garden!!

I came across, and instantly signed up.   I signed up because I love nature.  I also believe more people should give back to it, and grow something beautiful.

Why not grow something beautiful that you can eat?

This site makes it easier by putting all the guess work, and research into what Climate Zones can grow what, and when.  You just have to search by Zipcode, and it even emails you to remind you to plant.  I forget things lately, sooo that reminder is something I will enjoy.

This week I could be planting, collard greens, daikon radish, kohirabi, head lettuce, kalte, carrots, parsnips, turnips, rutabega, radishes, leaf lettuce, argula, spinach, mustard greens, beets, and transplant broccoli outdoors.

It even tells me what to start indoors as far as seedlings,

Week Of December 31, Start cabbage indoors.

Week Of January 21, Start leeks indoors.

This is SO cool, and I am getting ahead of myself.

Balmers Monkey Balm Review Not Just For Babies

Balmers Monkey Balm Review and Giveaway!!! by Angel *GreenVics* & Baby Sy;

This balm is a triple threat, It's an organic supersized vitamin bar for the whole body, It also works great, and for more than just one thing at a low price.  I have been using it on the eczema the baby gets on his cheeks.  He doesn't like when I use the tube straight on him, so I rub it on my hands first, and then gently on his face.  

Only a little bit of the stick is gone, but I've been using it over a month now. I didn't just use it on the baby,
I also used some when my feet had sunburn, and it helped w/the flaking.  A little bit goes a long way.
Then my 20month old had his first heat rash around his chubby little legs, I used the Monkey balm again, and it went away the next day.  This was when Ohio had those freakishly 100+ humid days, He's my winter baby, and he's not used to heat.  

Balmers, "This formula includes all-natural ingredients and features the amazing healing power of the sea buckthorn berry. Sea Buckthorn (seed and fruit) oil is time-tested and clinically proven to soothe irritation and heal dry, cracked, even abrasive skin resulting from eczema, rosacea, dry climates, seasonal changes, sunburn, rashes, and even minor burns and wounds. Sea buckthorn has been used for centuries in Asia and Europe to heal skin problems and is considered a "Holy Fruit" by ancient and modern Tibetans. "  

Verdict:  I absolutely love this stuff. It's safe for the whole family.  I am someone that wont use chapstick, but I do carry a tube of Vitamin E in my purse.  This has been my goto tube for the baby, easy to throw in the diaper bag too.

(His little face is perfect!!!)

I would recommend Balmers Monkey Balm to every new parent, well, and to any parent for that matter.  From skin type, to even elements in the weather,  a tube of this would be a great investment in skin care. 

Another great thing about, is the 100% money back guarantee.  Not alot of companies offer that anymore.  Or, buy 2, get free shipping,  2 tubes would probably last us years,  seriously, just a little bit, is so thick, and condensed I had to smooth it out in my hands first, then I rubbed onto the babies face.   I received this stick for free, I was not asked how to use it, or told what to write.  It worked great on Sy's sensitive skin. I used it on myself, and on the baby,  It being all natural, and no harsh chemicals like some baby lotion/balms out there made me feel better about using it, and giving it a review.  

24 HOUR FLASH GIVEAWAY: I am trying something new,  To enter the giveaway you just have to leave a comment saying You want to be entered! It's a 24Hr Flash Giveaway!!! Starts 8/22/2012, 4PM, Ends 8/23/2012, 4PM EST.

Bag Blaze Matilda Satchel Review & Giveaway

I'd like to introduce you to my Newest Precious , Bag Blazes Matilda Satchel, In Vibrant Orange!  I've never seen anything as tribal, and retro as it.  It reminds me that purses should be unique, and not always about the name on the tag. 

I fell in love with the retro appeal.  Even the inside is pretty eye catching.  It's cheetah print, and there are pockets for things like your cell, and keys. I will be using mine for coupons, and more than likely baby bottles, then everything else.

  • Zippered Top
  • 5" Drop Handles
  • Detachable 21" Messenger Strap
  • 14" L x  5" W x 9" H

The bag is extremely roomy, and very well made. You'd never guess the price, but keep in mind Bag Blaze's deals are normally 60% lower than Market Price. This bag here would cost $75.00 in store, but Bag Blazes price, $29.95.  

The stitch pattern on the Purse itself is very detailed, and put together nicely,  Below is a great up close shot of the design, and quality put into the bags.  I am very blessed to be able to offer a giveaway for a bag to one lucky follower thanks to Bag Blaze!  They are sponsoring the Giveaway.

Here are the other colors available for the Matilda Satchel,  Black, Blue, Fuchsia, and Orange.

Here's Your Chance To Win BagBlaze Matilda Satchel In Whatever Color You'd Like. ALSO, Exciting news, a blogger friend of mine has a giveaway too, to win a different purse. If I didn't already have a purse, I'd enter both!

If for some reason you can't use Rafflecopter, just leave me a message below, or on my facebook, and I will manually add you in for leaving me a comment, and being a fan. I believe everyone should be able to enter.
a Rafflecopter giveaway Giveaway Begins 12:01 AM 8/08/2012 &  Ends 12:01AM  8/22/12,

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion for a review. I was not paid for this post.  No one told me what to say.  I really do love the colors on this satchel.  I'm a retro type chic, so it fit my funky personality quite well. If you notice my reviews are a little different, I am currently doing them on my Sony S tablet, since the laptop is in the shop for a new graphics card.  

MadisonAtMain, Jellybean Rug Review And Giveaway

Here is my, Jellybean Indoor/Outdoor Washable Rug
Review & Giveaway,

This is the Front Gate Jellybean Rug I've been reviewing for the last two weeks. sent me this product for free so I can do a review for Jellybean Rugs.  The quality of the Jellybean rug is pretty great.  I love the design on mine, it matches every piece of furniture in my house.  I try to avoid overly cute novelty rugs, or things that I just don't "collect."  I wanted a rug that would match my wooden furniture, and the earthiness of the artwork that are on my walls.  Plus, I love plants, the swirls of the front gate pattern makes me think of vines, instead of the iron gate bars.  The swirls are always beautiful to me, and somewhat fantasy like.

(21" X 33" - 1/4" thick)

It looks much better in person than the stock photo from the website.  The Jellybean Rug is extremely soft, and standing on it you can really feel the thickness of the pattern.  Shipping wise, It came in just a few days, and rolled flat with no problems at all.  I've bought door way rugs before that no matter what I did, they just did not want to lay flat after being mailed.  But the material of the jellybean rug is much easier to work with.  It can also be washed.  The rugs are not nonslip, but I am using them on carpet in front of my sliding glass door, so I really don't need the option of non-slip for where my placement choice was made.  

Giant Microbes, Superbug MRSA

Giant Microbes Super Bug MRSA
"You won't find this Superbug in the Halls of Justice."

Super Bug MRSA
Giant Microbes, Super Bug MRSA, is beyond adorable, well you know.. for being MRSA.. I fell in love with the little bug, and his gold & black cape.  There is a site called Giant Microbes by Drew Oliver, that has nothing but these little buggers  Some even come three to a petri dish.  There are soo many of them.

Really,  The site is fun to search and see what one of these bacterias/viruses/critters look like up close.  The microbes are only a million times their actual size! So knowing those funky shapes, are the actual shapes of what the things are?? Creepy! Yet, oh so cool! 

GIANT BUG Super Bug MRSAEach one comes with a little pamplet on actual facts about what it is.

MRSA means methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.  1 in 3 people carry the Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Many MRSA carriers show no symptoms other than when their immune systems are low. The difference between a virus, and bacteria.. Bacteria can live months without something to keep them alive.

I had so much fun doing this review.  The stuffed plush microbe is definetely unique, and addicting.

I'd love to catch them all.. Get it.. Catch them all..? Hahahah.

What Microbe would you catch?  

Giant Microbes

Got to catch them all.. Well not really, please don't.

For some reason I just want to throw MRSA at people, and giggle profoundly at, ha ha.. You were just hit upside the head with MRSA.. I know I shouldn't.. You should not try this at home.  But, these plushes, vinyl toys, and merchandise are just fun.  I received my Microbe for free in exchange for a review.  

On a serious note (I left this for last for a reason) MRSA is contagious just by human touch, with that being said, if a bump, pimple, cut, whatever becomes infected, starts to blister,  it may need to be drained, because the bacteria will stay inside.  It's a very dangerous staph infection that can burrow deep inside, even to internal organs, and your bones.  If for a moment you think something isn't right, go to the doctors.  This is not something that just "goes away." 

I received this product for free from in exchange for my honest opinion for a review. I was not paid for this post.  No one told me what to say. 

Omax3 Ultra-Pure Review

I've been reviewing,The Ultra Omega-3 supplement Omax3 softgels the last past month, what I like about the omax3 is that there is no weird after taste, and I'm not burping up fish oil. They are extremely easy to swallow. That's what happens to me when I take fish oil. I'm fine, til a few hours later then the taste comes back up. I know.. I know, that's nasty, but that's just what happens to me. With the Omax3's I still got my the right ratio of EPA/DHA, and it is 10x more than Fish/Krill Oil alone.

My body needs the extra fatty acids, to help with inflammation.  I fractured, and separated my leg years ago, but there is still metal hardware that makes it possible for my knee to bend.  I have what is called an Open Reduction Internal Fixation.  Just a fancy way of saying there is a leg brace under the skin drilled to bone, and cadavers that looks like a keenex set.   I don't believe in taking a chemical induced cocktail of drugs that's supposed to help nerve damage, and bone pain.  I just wont do it.  The side affects of those drugs out weigh the benefits of just a healthier diet, trying to keep weight off myself, and taking pills like Omega-3 supplements to help blood flow, and cholesterol.  I'm not a doctor, and I'm not saying this would be your cure all drug,  what I am saying is I already took pills like this before, and I will continue taking Omega-3 supplements.  

Everyone should ask themselves,
  • Am I getting enough omega-3 fatty acids in my diet?
  • What are Omega-3's good for?
  • Why does my body need supplements like this?

These are all questions you need to research, and ask your doctor about before taking a supplement.  In past experience, a good doctor will seek out dietitian help, homeopathic alternatives, and not just throw their patients on some type of chemical altering pill.  I understand sometimes those pills are needed, but there are cases where they aren't.  

This really is something I feel strongly about.  Bad things happen mostly not from the direct cause, but from a side affect caused from something else completely.'s website states,

"Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids have a role in regulating natural inflammatory responses.

Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation response within the body and omega-6 fatty acids promote inflammation.

Early human diets were high in omega-3-rich content, leading toward a balanced (1:1) ratio in omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, the modern Western diet has tilted the scale to a lopsided (1:15) omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.4

Science strongly suggests that restoring the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can restore proper inflammatory responses within the body ."

One Lucky Follower, Must be 18+yrs of Older, Can Win One Month Supply Of Omax3's. U.S. Residents Only. Giveaway begins 8/20/12, ends 8/31/12. Rafflecopter chooses at random the winner. Winner has 7 buisness days to reply, if no reply prize is forfeited and another winner will be chosen. Omax3 is responsible for prize fullfillment.

Good Luck, And thanks for reading my review!! I received these Omax3s for free, It did not sway my opinion.

Purex Insider: Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bait, and Gel

Review, and Giveaway For Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bate, and Gel,

I'm part of Purex Insiders group.  I received this Kit of Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bait, and Ant Gel for free, for my honest opinion.  My first thoughts when the kit arrived was how real the ants on top of the box looked for the picnic scene.  I've been having issues with ants lately.  I really don't want to spray anything, so this is a better option.  I did try Lavender oil, Peppermint oil.  I'm really burnt out on the little red ants that keep getting in.

The bates I put nearest to the sliding glass door, and didn't use the syringe with the Gel were I put the bates at.  I read that it's better to leave them an opening that way they can take the ant bate back to the nest, and you have a better chance of getting rid of them.

Around the rest of the windows I used the syringe of Combat Source Kill Max on the exterior windows.  I have a baby, and a dog that both like to get into the window to look out.  So I wanted to test it on the outside,  I know I'm going to have more treatments that way, but I just feel safer that it's outside, and not touchable from inside.  

It's been a few days now, and I haven't had an ant bite me.  I'm hoping some of the bate got back to the queen.  

I have great news, since I am a Purex Insider, and For this Combat Ant Kit, I get to offer a giveaway to one lucky follower for the same kit I received.  These are chemicals, so treat them with respect.  Follow the directions.

The Alpha Beasts Review

I've been trying to find a fun way to teach Vic his alphabets. I came across The Alpha Beasts and instantly fell in love. Just the name alone, "The Alpha Beasts," I needed to give my baby. There is a whole clan of them from A-Z, all different characters.

Each has their own unique, silly name.


We adopted V:Vin-Vin. Vic grabbed Vin-Vin up, and started kissing him all over. Vin-Vin is a great educational tool too. It didn't take Vic long to trace the V with his fingers while I chanted "V, Vic," and pointed to him. I said, "Do you love Vin-Vin?", and he'd kiss him again.

The Alpha Beast itself was extremely soft, and can be used as a pillow. I really love this thing. He's been dragging it around all day now, even took it to bed with him. I want them all! Even the Alpha Beasts Box ABC book set. At least this will be a fun way to teach toddlers the alphabets, and to spell their own names. I just need I, and C now, and Vic is done. Maybe, S-I-L-A-S for his middle name. That would be super-cute across his bed.

I think they are spunky, cute, and I want to live in their tree house too. I knew Vic would love it. He's a stuffed animal freak, and this just fit him perfect.

Kisses for Vin-Vin.

..My Blog DisclosureI received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion for a review. I was not paid for this post.  No one told me what to say. Vic LOVED his new friend.  That's all that really matters.
