Awesome Deck of Awesome Review!

Currently we are reviewing the Awesome Deck Of Awesome Cards.  These are positive reinforcement of Awesome Deck of Awesome Playing Cards. Each card is a different way to express how awesome your child is. Give a card just because, or reward for a chore. Once every card is collected it finishes a puzzle on the back. Your Awesome is Legendary is one of our favorites.

We really dig the artwork, and different ways to say You're Awesome! I know being a parent has its up's and down's.  We should always remember to tell our children how Awesome they really are.  

Every time I would tell Sy he was Awesome. (Well Rawrsome, because that's my other favorite card!) He would do a little happy dance.  Sy does not speak, but I know when he's happy.  He does the Gimmie gimmie signal, and a happy dance.  He also takes things, and kisses them when he likes them.

Sy is pretty Awesome.

The Nuts and Bolts of #Franchising

Ever think about owning your own business? As in owning a Franchise?  How about owning a Supercuts? You won't be cutting hair. You would have licensed employees for that, also normal business hours, managers, trained staff, and  Below are some the most common misconceptions about Franchising, and the Truth.

Common Supercuts and Franchising Misconceptions:

  • This business is for hairstylists. It's not a serious business for people who aren't hairstylists.
  • You need to know how to cut hair to open a Supercuts franchise.

The Truth about Supercuts and Franchising:

  • The hair care industry is stable. It is a need based business, not a want based business. (Frozen yogurt is a want, but a haircut is a need, both in good times and in bad.)
  • Cutting Hair cannot be made technologically obsolete.
  • Services must be performed by a licensed professional, you won't ever be cutting hair, you will be in charge of running the business instead.

It's simple to own a Supercuts. You don't have a high amount of staff, inventory costs are low, hours are especially reasonable compared to other franchise industries such as food, automotive, child care, fitness, etc.

The Supercuts brand is widely recognized. It's also backed by national advertising, robust web and mobile presence and the Supercuts brand is sought after nationally.

A recent NPR article discussed some of the whys and hows franchisees chose Supercuts.

Prevagen Dietary Supplement Review

I started to take Prevagen about a month ago, when it comes to Dietary supplements I like to stop taking all other vitamins so I can see what exactly my review vitamins can do.

I took Prevagen Daily. I did get a lot done this month, as far as my Holiday Gift guide posts, and putting together more Giveaways for my blog. So that was a bonus for me.

Here are questions I personally go by for vitamins, and answers for supplements I take,

Do they taste horrible? No The pills are actually in capsule form, white, no smell, no taste.

Are they hard to swallow? No, The capsules are coated for easier consumption.

Did they interfere with my sleep? No, I've been going to bed earlier lately.

How did I feel in the morning?  Not horrible, I get up, take a shower if I can before the 2 year old wakes up, and start our day.

Did I remember things easier? I have been working on my Website more, and doing a lot more Reviews/Giveaways, also stocking up on Coupon Deals that are out.  I probably shop at 6 different stores, each with a different set of coupons, and deals to do that day.  So I take that as yes, I have been kicking major butt at remembering certain things lately.

Would I recommend Prevagen? I would.  If your Doctor Okays it, Go for it.  I am no doctor, but I do personally believe that we do not get enough vitamins, and proteins in our everyday meals.

What is the main ingredient in Prevagen? The main is Apoaequorin (Protein from Jellyfish)

More info About Prevagen,

Prevagen (pronounced “prev-uh-gen”), developed by Quincy Bioscience, is a unique brain health supplement that promotes clearer thinking and improves memory. Prevagen’s main ingredient is a new use for a well-known protein called “apoaequorin” which was originally found in a certain species of jellyfish.

As we age, the body’s ability to produce essential proteins slows down. When this happens you begin to lose about 30,000 brain cells every day, and may start to experience difficulty with memory, focus and concentration. Apoaequorin has been clinically tested and shown to supplement these proteins during the natural process of aging and improves brain health and overall memory.
In 2012, Prevagen became the number one selling brain health supplement in chain drug stores across the country, and continues to remain on top. Prevagen is available in health food stores and pharmacies nationwide including Walgreen, CVS, Rite Aid, and Vitamin Shoppe.
Prevagen is safe and effective. Daily use for 30-90 days is the recommended length of time to experience noticeable results.

Werthers Original Mommy Party, with Gluten Free Caramel Cheesecake Bites Easy Recipe. #WerthersBakingBash

I wanted to do a fun, and easy recipe for my Werthers Original Baking Bash Mommy Party! In my Mommy Party kit I received bags of the New Werthers Original Baking Caramels.  I decided to make Mini Caramel Cheese Cake bites.  The bites were a huge success among Adults, and Children.  I gave bags away as Door prizes too.

I try to think outside the box when it comes to snacks like this. My husband is Wheat Free, and I found delicious GF Graham Crackers.

I am a huge believer in life does not have to be complicated.  Parties should not be complicated.  The food served at my parties are always delicious, and my friends thought I was kidding when I told them how easy Werthers Original Baking Caramels were to use, and even more blown away that this had absolutely no wheat in it either.

Honestly, All I did for this Recipe was,

Crunched up Gluten Free Graham Crackers,
Added Butter, and Cinnamon Sugar to the Crust Mix.
Packed down the Crust Mix into the Mini Cupcake wrappers.

Baked on 350 for a few minutes.

Purchased Cheesecake filling (Yes, like I said EASY.)
Packed cheese cake filling into the Cupcake wrappers overtop the Crust.

It's starting to look like mini cheesecakes by now.
Baked in the oven again for a few minutes on 350.

I found it convenient that once they cooled off some, they made their own indent.

This is the fun part,  The melting of the Werthers Original.  Once, again, I used the microwave. Aint' no shame in my Lazy game.  Once the Caramel was melted (It melts super fast.) I used a spoon, and just made a dot of caramel in the middle of the bite.

To set the Bites up, I placed them in the Fridge, and this is the finished product.  Seriously, everyone at the party thought I had bought them.  The baking pan I have, makes 24 mini's.  I know some people are all, I would've made the cheesecake filling from scratch, blah, blah, blah blahgaedy, blah, but you know what? They were still good, and I really don't care! I'm no Rachel Ray, and I have no time to stand pretty in the kitchen. 

Everyone was happy, happy.

Disclaimer, received an Werthers Original Baking Bash Mommy Party Kit for free, to try, and share! Sharing is caring, All photos are my own. Hope you enjoy my #WerthersBakingBash Party Photos.

Barts Chocolate Chip Cookie Giveaway! Plus, My own Barts Cookies Gluten-Free White Chocolate Chip with Macadamia Nuts, and Chocolate Chip Review.

Enter to win your own World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Dozen!

Disclaimer: I received product to facilitate a review, and giveaway. U.S. Only. Giveaway begins 10/25/13 12:00AM Est, Ends 11/08/13 12:00 Est Time. Winner is chosen at Random Via Raffle Copter, Prize Est Value, $17.95, Winners choice of Cookie Dozen!, and affiliates are not responsible for prize fulfilment. Prize is mailed directly from the sponsor! Winner has 48 hours to verify email once winning email has been received.

Let me first confess how I did not want to share any of these with my family after tasting Barts Cookies Gluten-Free White Chocolate Chip with Macadamia Nuts.  The cookies are Thiiiiiiick, and just these perfect round balls of moist, chocolate chip spheres. What I found refreshing about Barts Cookies is what you see is what you get.  The photos aren't photo shopped, the cookies really do taste/speak for themselves.

My hubby has been Gluten-Free for over a year.  It's a nice treat to find treats like Barts Gluten-Free Cookies that he can still have a cookie with the family.  I tricked my hubby.. I said "it's Gluten Free," he ate it.. and loved it.  I then said, "SUCKAAAH I lied, its not," and he freaked out thinking I had played a mean trick on him.  After I confessed, yes, it's GF, he didn't believe me and I had to show him the bag. Haha. Evil, vile, rotten wife. I just wanted to see if his opinion changed at all on the flavor.  He thought it was TOO good to be GF.

My son and I received Barts Cookies Milk Chocolate Chip.  They were moist, and jam packed with Chocolate chips.  I am a total snob when it comes to my sweets.  I like bakery quality treats.  I usually get Cannoli's, personal mini boston creme pies.  Hey.. If I'm going to splurge on a sugary treat, it better be worth the sugar, and the cinnamon pills I'll be taking later!  These cookies pass my sweet test. 

My 2 year old also enjoyed a couple of the cookies.  They are the perfect individual treat size too.  He called it a Cookie Ball.  These would be perfect for his Birthday in December!  

I also wanted to show you all how perfectly the bottom of the cookies are a light brown.  I can't stand my cookies being overly baked, and just hard as a rock with not moistness left, and these were right on in texture.

The best way I can think of to describe Barts Cookies are to, think of a cookie with 5 layers of cookies stacked ontop, but while still perfectly baked.

Donated my hair!

Something that is dear to me, is keeping my hair healthy enough to donate to locks of love.  Everyone needs to maintain, and get their hair cut right? The way I see it.  My hair is not my own.  It has not been my own since I had to get an ORIF, and cadavers in my leg to be able to walk.  I can't donate my bones anytime soon, but I can grow my hair out to donate to someone that does need it. I have been donating my hair for the past decade almost.  Every 2-3 years I get over 11 inches cut off.  I believe in Karma, and paying it forward.  Sometimes it takes something like this to humble a person, and what happened to me did humble me.  I wouldn't be the person I am today, or where I am at in life if it didn't happen.

When it gets to that redonk length that I sit on it, it takes individual sections to brush.. and forever to dry ( I don't blow dry.) It's time to donate. 

Doesn't Falcon look adorable with my hair on his head?? This was the night before I donated it.  I do miss it, but I know it'll grow fast, and I can donate it again.

It's still to my shoulders, so it's not too short. Everyone should donate, least a few times in their life time. I think its just excuses when people say "I don't have time.", "The hair isn't donated.", "I want to cut it myself, and mail it in." But they never do.  If you can make all those excuses, why can't you just get it cut, and donate.  There are also plenty of ways to get shampoo cheap, and free too.  I use Silicone, and Sulfate free shampoos.  

Did you know most Salons will cut your hair free if you tell them you want to donate it.  Just call around, and ask.  

Lugz Fall Shoes Review, and Promo: FALLBOGO !

Love, love, love, LOVEEEEE these shoes from Lugz.  Lugz has a new line called Laurel.  What made me want to try these beauties on were the soft, faux fur inner lining.  

As you can see, these are the Turquoise/Koi/Cream/Taupe Laurel Womens Shoes.  

Right now there is a Fall Buy 1 Get 1 50% Sale by using code:  FALLBOGO

I had a hard time choosing between the Turquoise, or the Amethyst.  Both are beautiful, vivid colors. I refuse to let the Gray skies of Ohios Fall/Winter bum me out, and bring a little color pop here, and there. I've been stopped by strangers in the store that ask me where I got my moccasins from.  It's that bright turquoise that make them unique, and why I really do love them so much.  I also have native american in me.  My great grandma was Choctaw Indian.  

Lugz Laurel also has a rubber traction outsole, so bring it winter! I walked around outside while it was a bit wet, with wet leaves on the ground, and the shoes suede survived. So did myself (meaning I did not fall, and break my tail bone.)

These retail for $29.99,  with the FALLBOGO sale, that ends 10/28/2013, You can get TWO pairs of the Laurels for $45ish plus Tax, & Free S/H. There are also some really nice mens Boots! 

Here are the Mens,  Lugz Drifters that my Hubby is enjoying, These are on sale for $59.99.

He's going to call me his rotten wife when he sees this photo I just posted.  I like it, ;D  But those are the Lugz Wheat/Cream Drifter Boots.  They are absolutely perfect for this weather.  Or for, tip toeing down the sidewalk.  He had to stop, and pose pretty for me.

Check Lugz out on Twitter, and Facebook! The great thing about social media.. You'll get updates about new products, and promotional codes.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Beautycounter by Corina Davis Giveaway, One lip sheer in a color of the winner's choosing MRSR $28 Ends 11/14/2013, Life According To GreenVics is not responsible for Prize Fulfillment.

Review, and Giveaway below by BHDD,

Beautycounter’s story begins with a recommendation from trusted source. After a close friend suggested she check out a documentary about the ways that the environment could be impacting our health, Gregg Renfrew started to question the safety of the products she was using on her family and herself. Much of what goes on our skin (our largest organ) is absorbed into the body and can end up in our bloodstream. So shouldn't the products we use day after day be safe? After searching for better beauty options that were safe and delivered results, she kept wishing there were something better. As a seasoned CEO and entrepreneur, Gregg saw an opportunity to fill the void herself. That’s when she founded Beautycounter. Beginning with a team of respected health advocates, chemists and makeup artists to conceive and formulate prestige-quality products that would perform, she then added direct sales experts, business executives and leaders in technology to create a brand that would be able to make a difference. Today, Beautycounter is a skincare and cosmetics company connecting people and empowering our network of Members and independent Consultants with the opportunity they need to improve their lives and the lives of the people they care about most. Together we are a powerful force for change in the beauty industry. Because we are fans of Beautycounter’s products they once again make list, 2013 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE !

The Swiss Colony 82 All-Time Favorite Things Review, and Giveaway (Retail Value $129.95.)

Here are a few of my favorite things,
Life According To GreenVics 2013 Holiday Gift Guide.

The Swiss Colony 82 All-Time Favorites Food Gift Box. First I'd like to point out how fast shipping was. Came the same week it was ordered.  It's an impressive 10 lb. box full of cheeses, sausages, cookies, nuts, candies and jams.  The great thing about The Swiss Colony is that you can request a free catalog to browse at home by going [here]. 

Opening the Swiss Colony package was so much fun.  It was delivered in a red, and white box with The Swiss Colony written all over it.  My husband answered the door, and started screaming The Swiss Colony package is here!! My little one helped me open the box, and remove (pop the bubble wrap.) I was excited, and curious to how exactly 10 pounds of snacks like this were mailed.  

It was a bit overwhelming seeing all the snacks in the box.  However my son had no problem jumping right in.  He went straight for the Swiss Creme Cookie, and Old World Cookies.  They had no chance to even be photographed.  He does this thing.. where he sniffs things before he puts it to his nose.. Always.. every piece of food.. I guess if it passes his sniff test, it's good enough to eat.  He's two.. I try not to over analyze the logic behind a toddler.  I just know he ate it all on the spot, and didn't run around crazy playing with it.  

I attempted to take everything out of the box, and try to organize it.  There is so much that I had a hard time taking a photo of it all in the same frame.   I just wanted to dump it out, and roll around in it while calling it my precious.

What I really liked about this box is the fact I can make separate gifts, or I can just prepare a tray for guests.

Everything in me wanted to go straight for the sweets, but I decided to try the Summer Sausage, Cheddar Cheese, and Swiss & Ham Spread.  *Crackers not Included.  There is an abundance of meat, and cheese in this package that it's smart to buy boxes of your favorite crackers.

Let me just tell you.. it filled my snack craving! Loved the combo between the sausage, and cheeses.  The meat was moist, and cheese was smooth.  Seriously, best meat, and cheese holiday box ever.

I believe there is something in this 82 All-Time Favorites Box for everyone.  

There is also mini loafs of breads, and petite fours.  Even a Chocolate Holiday Mouse.  Oh? And, can't forget the chocolate covered butter toffee.

I send my Mom & Dad packages for the Holidays.  I know they like the snack on things too.  I know kits like these are more than just a one time use gift.  The 82 All-Time Favorites Box retails for $129.95, plus shipping & handling.  Last time I mailed something out of state, it cost me over $20.00, and I'm over the hassle of going to the post office, and worrying if my package is actually going to make it there on time, or at all.  I'd rather just find a gift box, and have it mailed to them from the company now.  Saves me time, and stress.
