PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands Review

Since I have been looking for ways to get fit and lose a few extra pounds, getting to review a set of PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands was an awesome opportunity. I got a set of four bands through Tomoson in exchange for a review, which was a great way for me to start getting some exercise in. These loop bands are very sturdy and have stood up to the test of my exercises. I also like that they come in four strengths, so you can work your way up from easy to hard, and/or use different resistance to do different exercises. However one thing [ ... ]

Skin QR Organics, NuElle Triple Action Anti Cellulite Cream Review

In my quest to lose those nasty 20 lbs. I’ve been talking about, I was super happy to have the opportunity to do a cellulite cream review in exchange for the cream product. Because we all know that with those extra pounds also comes the even more noticeable bumpy look on our legs, I definitely needed some help to see if I can reduce it. Anyway, I have been trying the Skin Organics NuElle Triple Action anti Cellulite Cream Concentrate cream for a couple of weeks now to see if it will work. Well, since I’ve only been using it for a [ ... ]

Serious quest to lose 20 lbs!

After my first pregnancy 6 years ago, I lost the baby weight very fast (well, except that my stomach never got flat and depending on how much gas I have in there it can look like I am perpetually 6 months pregnant, which is a total mystery and I have no idea what the heck happened there…) But, as fast as I lost the pounds the first time around, with the second pregnancy it was like a 180, plus I still have that weird belly. Double whammy for me! Yay. While I didn’t gain much more than with the first pregnancy when [ ... ]

Dark Hope: Book 1 of the Archangel Prophecies review

I love Young Adult fiction, so I had to jump at the chance to review Dark Hope: Book One of the Archangel Prophecies by Monica McGurk. Plus, on top of it, this novel is fantasy/paranormal, which is one of my favorite genres. Monica became a fan favorite when she wrote Morning Star, which is a story telling an alternate ending to the Twilight Series that came out before the release of Breaking Dawn. Dark Hope is Monica’s first novel, and I truly think it is a great start to a very promising writing career. Dark Hope is the type of novel that keeps you turning [ ... ]

Weight Gurus Smartphone Tracking Digital Body Fat Scale

Since I’m trying to lose the extra baby weight (a whole year later, but who’s counting…) I thought the Weight Gurus Smartphone Digital scale that I got to review from Tomoson would come very handy. The good thing about this scale is that it not only tells you what you weigh, but also how much body fat, muscle mass and water you have as well. It really helps to keep you motivated to go on with your weight loss efforts. So far, I have lost like 4 pounds, and I can also keep track of exactly how much I lose a week and [ ... ]

“I must regard of your blog” – Huh? When fake blog comments go wrong

If you have a blog you have undoubtedly gotten the inevitable few fake blog comments, or a thousand, at some point or another. You know, the ones that try to sell stuff on your blog through some sales pitch on your comments section. But, those are just the beginning… the real kickers are the ones that sound like they were written by an ESL beginning student. Well, granted, many of these comments do probably originate in other countries by Internet workers getting a penny per comment. Still, you’d thing they would at least word out a comment in a way that [ ... ]

Review of Advanced Probiotic from Number One Nutrition

Since I am always looking for a good probiotic, I was ready for the opportunity to review the Advanced Probiotic supplement I got through Tomoson recently. I’ve actually only been using it for a few days now, so I can’t fully tell if it is working yet, but I can say the positive things that I have noticed so far. For one, since I began taking the probiotic things have been more regular — uh, you know the number 2 situation — which is not always something that happens in my life. Then, it also seems to be helping to reduce the hateful bloating [ ... ]

I said I would never get a Filofax – Any planner will do – Yeah, right

So, my new planner obsession is just getting worse and worse, and weeks after I said I would never get a Filofax, here I am waiting on my Amazon order to arrive – an Original A5 patent fuchsia Filofax. Yep. I caved. Well, I mean the reason I said I would settle for any old regular planner was because Filofaxes are quite expensive, and I thought it was ridiculous to spend that kind of money on a binder. But… But! I found the super cute brand new pink binder on Amazon for about half the price. So, I said to myself, hey [ ... ]

We live in a box

So, for today I thought to take you on a tour of our lovely living space. Not for any one reason, but I just needed something to post and this is what came to mind. Anyway, so to begin the walk-through I will lead  you into our living room, which is also our play room, tv room, eating room. Oh, and it is also the office. Yep, definitely multifunctional. Next we have two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a kitchen. Plus, we have a balcony. And there you have it. Our little condo. Yes, we live in a box. It’s a nice box though. I mean, it [ ... ]

Nature’s Best Vitamin C Serum from Mystelic Beauty review

Vitamin C Serum review I was given this Nature’s Best Vitamin C serum through Tomoson for review and I had to grab the opportunity to try something that would help my skin. While I don’t have bad wrinkles, I do have a few lines that I would love to tone down, such as two ugly frown lines on my lower forehead between my eyes. There are also some other unwanted lines on my chin area (looks like the dreaded jowls are getting ready to start appearing, yikes!) that I’d love to make disappear. Then, have some acne marks that I am hoping to reduce and this [ ... ]
