** I was sent this product for the purpose of this review. However my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Lovin' My Portable Stereo Turntable   A few months ago my daughter and I were shopping at an antique store. I remember coming around a corner and seeing some records to which my daughter immoderately asked "What the heck are these Mom? They look like big CD's." I was honestly surprised that she did not know what they were. She is 11 years old! I grew up with a turntable in my room and listened to records all the time. I guess I took that for granted and just expected her to know lol. I explained to her what they were and we ended up searching around the antique store until finding a turntable. I showed her how it would work and such...she was so curious and amazed. Fast forward a few weeks and I got a surprising email asking me if  I would be interested in reviewing..guess what...a turntable! YAY! I of course said yes and immediately went down town … [Read more...]

Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay

** I was sent a product for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay There is nothing more embarrassing then getting acne at my age. I hit the big 3-0 this year and I never thought that I would still be battling something that began occurring on my skin over 15 years ago. Recently I was sent the Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay. This system has four great products to help keep your skin free and clear. #1 - Clarifying Cleansing Gel - This gel is oil and fragrance free. It says to apply 1-3 times daily. I started out with one time each day just like the instructions said. I did notice that when I increased to twice a day it dried my skin out. The air has been horribly dry recently so I think that I will wait a few months before I try the twice daily again. But for now the once a day seems to be doing great with my skin! The Clarifying Cleansing Gel helps in reducing black heads … [Read more...]

50's Vintage Style Tea Party Dress   ** I was sent a 50's Vintage Style Tea Party Dress for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   My Thoughts On The 50's Vintage Style Tea Party Dress From Hip Hop 50's Shop   I have to say I rarely wear dresses, it's not that I don't love them, because I do. But mainly on other women, just not myself. I have a hard time finding the right style to fit my body type and be comfortable enough to keep me from self doubting myself the entire time it's on. It is what it is but when I received this adorable 50's Vintage Style Tea Party Dress I had a feeling it might just be a match made in heavenly bliss.   First let me start off by saying this dress was designed with a woman's body in mind. The straight cut across with the accent bow was a great touch. It wasn't too goddy or frilly by any means and with the hint of black netting on the bottom it became my ultimate … [Read more...]

Mom's Night Out Review & Giveaway! If you are a Mother you understand the importance of a Mom's Night Out. It does not matter if you have one kid or ten! It is hard being a Mom.

I also watch two new born babies throughout the day and have a 6 year old to take to school. This of course is on top of home schooling my daughter. My days are FULL! No matter how much I love these beautiful children I also love "me time". Unfortunately  now that I am home schooling my "me time" is less and less. I am with children 24-7! Recently I was sent a copy of Mom' Night Out starring Sarah Drew, Sean Astin, Patricia Heaton and Trace Adkins. I was excited to finally have a movie that I could watch without all the inappropriate junk. No need to worry about foul language, nudity and sex during this family friendly film.

Today that meant adding pops of red to my outfit. I went with red leggings, a red cami undershirt and red lipstick! I never, EVER wear red lipstick but it seemed like a must with this outfit! I typically don't wear bold colors or shorter dresses. But as I grow older I realize that it is time for me to step out of my comfort zone a little.
