My life is crazy! I wake up every morning at 4:30am at get two kids that I watch for my cousin. At 6:30am I get another child who I watch for a friend. Then at 8:00am I take my cousins kid to school. After I get home my day is filled with babies, homeschooling my daughter, cleaning, church meetings, lesson planning, cooking meals, making grocery lists, writing reviews, sending out emails, planning church lessons, making church visits and more. There is honestly not enough time in the day! Some of you might remember that at the beginning of the year I made a vow that I would be a healthier me. This included eating less junk, working out more, and making sure I get in a Good-for-you breakfast. The downfall with my breakfast is that I am so busy. It is easy to prepare meals for the kids … [Read more...]

I received a sample of Nature Made Children’s Vitamins for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. Put Your Kids Health First With Nature Made!   If you are an avid reader of my blog then you know that this year I have committed to taking healthier steps in my life. This not only includes focusing on my health but also the health of those in my family.  This includes making sure that we are all getting the vitamins and minerals that we need to stay healthy. Recently I visited a local health food store and started talking to one of the employee's about vitamins for my daughter. The first brand that the employee picked up was the Nature Made vitamins. She told me that it was her "go to" brand for her children because Nature Made offered everything she would need to stay healthy. We of course also discussed how cold it is getting here in Colorado and how all of the kiddo's seem to be getting sick....except for … [Read more...]

Thanks to Poise I was paid for this article. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Don't Let LBL Hold You Back....I Don't I am an avid water drinker. I drink at least a gallon of water a day. Not only do I drink lots of water because I actually like it...but also because I live an active lifestyle. I love going for daily walks, bike rides and hikes. At times it is hard to hold it when I am out on the trail. It is not like there are bathrooms along the way on my bike rides or on my family hikes. Plus it is not like I would feel comfortable to just stop an go when I am on those busy trails with friends. So...I do what any women would do. I hold it.....and usually I do pretty good at holding it. That is until I cough, laugh or hit a bump on my bike. Now as you can imagine this could lead up to some pretty embarrassing moments but thanks to Poise Microliners it is no longer an issue! You see Poise Microliners has this wonderful feature named SAM (super … [Read more...]

Cleaning Carpets in An Eco-Friendly Way One Stain At A Time

Carpet

~Cleaning Carpets in An Eco-Friendly Way One Stain At A Time~   I don't know about you but my carpet takes a beating each and every day. With our family of four and a furry one as well there is always something being spilled on our carpet it seems and the biggest issue is keeping it looking fresh and clean. Last week our dog had gotten on the table and grabbed a concentrated water flavoring (grape nonetheless) while we were gone and when we got back home there was a HUGE purple stain on our carpet that was saturated with grape concentrate. Needless to say the dog went outside for awhile and I was standing above this stain wondering what to do next.   I grabbed some paper towels and even though that worked with soaking up the excess liquid, I still had a huge purple area. We really like to clean our house with eco-friendly products and all natural ways instead of putting chemicals on our things and breathing those in. We ended up using baking soda a few times … [Read more...]

 ** I was sent a Laptop Lunches Bento-Ware for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   Laptop Lunches Bento-Ware! I have been focusing recently on eating healthier. This includes what I send to school with my daughter in her lunch. When I go shopping my main goal has been to shop the outskirts of the store. You know what I mean....only produce, meat and dairy. It has been hard to adjust to this new routine as I was used to hitting the aisles and purchasing lots of high calorie items with too many additives to even count. I know that when I was shopping like that I was making life easier for myself. But, in the long run it would have made things much harder on my daughter. One thing I quickly noticed with my new shopping habits was that it is harder to package items that are not prepackaged. I was using up SO MANY throwaway bags and this did not sit well with me. I did not like to see all the trash that I had to use to … [Read more...]

** I was sent a product for the purpose of this PB Crave Review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. PB Crave - Great for Kids Snacks and Lunches! We eat a lot of peanut butter in my house.

Although we eat a lot of peanut butter in our home my family has been complaining recently that they are tired of the same old peanut butter taste.

National Tooth Fairy Day – Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips #Review and #Giveaway! – 2 Winners!

image001

** I was sent a box of Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips If you would have asked me 6 months ago if I was concerned with the color of my teeth I would have told you no. But, I am constantly trying to change myself and help to boost my self esteem. About two months ago I decided that I was going to start focusing on things that I wanted to change. One of them was the color of my teeth. I have never had 'overly yellow' teeth and I attribute this to not smoking and not drinking coffee. But, upon closer inspection of my teeth they were not perfectly white either. Needless to say I have been purchasing 'whitening' toothpaste but I have not yet purchased any whitening strips. That is why I was very excited to give Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips a try. These strips intrigued me because I don't have to remove them. I can place them on my teeth quickly … [Read more...]

 Improve Your Overall Health With Krill Oil! Everest Nutrition Krill Oil   Ok let's face it, I am not getting any younger. I am now at that stage where I start to research everything I put into my body and trying to figure out what vitamins and minerals are the best is down right time consuming!   I have been given the great opportunity to review Krill Oil by Everest Nutrition. As little as krill are, krill oil is making a HUGE wave in the health world.     Krill oil gives you those omega 3's that we all are supposed to be getting. That is about the only thing I had heard about Krill oil. I used to take fish oil daily so I could get my daily dose of omega 3's but since I recently moved to the northwest I am no longer needing to purchase fish oil. My husband has taken up the sport of fishing and I say the term sport because these fishermen are serious about their daily catches and getting their limits each and every day! I am now able to eat … [Read more...]

  This is a Fashionista Events opportunity. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is hosting their annual walk with illuminated balloons to signify "Light The Night" to help the thousands of American's with blood cancer and help fund the research to find a cure.   I know the word cancer all too well and sadly so many of us are in that same group.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade Dishwasher Detergent. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. For my birthday this year I decided to break down and spend the money on something I had been wanting for years.....a dishwasher. Now that my dishwasher is in my house its time to focus on the best dish washing soap that will not only get my dishes sparkly clean but also sanitize and keep my machine running efficiently. As soon as we got the dishwasher home and all set up I opened the door of the dishwasher and seen that the soap dispenser already had a brand name of soap written on it. That name is Cascade. I knew that I wanted a dish washing soap that would get everything sparkly clean without me having to pre-wash everything before putting it into the dish washer. I decided that since I knew and trusted the Cascade name I would give their Cascade Platinum a … [Read more...]
