SWEET DREAMS with BEDTIME BLISS Sleep Mask, Ear Plugs & Carry Case! Round 2! Review



Ever wondered what it is like to be able to sleep in complete darkness? I have tried room darkening curtains only to find that they really did not help much. I live in an upstairs apartment and directly above my bedroom window sits one of those really big flood lights that is supposed to keep the property lit up. Well it is so bright that even the curtains do not block the light from entering my room.

I have tried some of those so called beauty sleep masks but they were not very comfortable as they sat directly on my eyes! I at least want to be able to move my eyelids.

This amazing sleep mask is perfect for me. The patented contour design allows for complete freedom of eye movement, total blackout for a restful sleep, will not smudge makeup, and does not interfere with REM sleep.

It is very soft and luxurious and it rests on the face around the eye area. It does not touch the eye directly. also comes with ear plugs and fits nicely in any purse or travel case.

Very light weight and washable too! I had my husband try it out since he has to go to bed early in the evening when there is still noise outside and it's not completely dark out. He seemed to have slept very well as seen in the photo :) slept like a baby!

This wonderful product can be found at amazon.com and I highly recommend it for anyone who has trouble sleeping!

My journey to Fitness continues





BEFORE: 180


AFTER: 138



As most of you who follow my blog know: Two years ago I was a mess!! I was extremely overweight (according to my doctor) , had little or no energy, had very low self esteem and most importantly my blood pressure was very high!

I had tried every diet fix out there from pills, to foods, etc. Nothing took the weight off :( I walked every day for hours (speed walking) only to discover that I would lose about 1 pound AND gain blisters on my feet (ouch)

A friend of mine had mentioned the hcg drops and how she was losing weight overnight. This sparked my curiosity and i researched it a bit to see just what it was all about. to make a long story short...I bought it, tried it and wow!! I was able to drop 48 pounds withing 12 weeks!! No lie...I took the drops as directed, stuck to the diet (protocol) which is very hard to follow as it only allows you to consume 500 calories a day and is very limited in food choices.
But i was determined to make it work and it did :) I went from 180 to 139 in no time!! 

My goal is to be 125 which is what is recommended for my height. I am still around where i left off 139-140 pounds and I am just pleased that i have been able to maintain this weight even after 2 years and no more drops.

Now we all know how good we feel after losing weight, but there is also a down side to it as well and that is seeing all of that skin that was so badly stretched out and left hanging!! ugghhh that just makes me so frustrated!

Well i decided that this year was going to be all about tightening and toning that stubborn skin and so i joined a really cool, fun and energetic class called TABATA .This class is held at our local gym My very first day was excruciating!! I got dizzy, overheated and nauseous...seriously!! i thought i had been beat!! I walked out and sat on the curb and just gave up!! But not really, because two days later i showed up again and was ready to take this on head first!! Jumped right back in and did it!! all the way through and let me tell you it felt good. My whole body was sore...could barely walk up my stairs, felt like i had been hit by a train!! But hey...it was all good :) 

Now about the class...it is a very high intensity workout and by that i mean no breaks, no stopping and full on heart throbbing sweat pouring exercise!! I know...you are thinking ummm no thanks!! but really, once you get the hang of it ..well...it is so much fun!!! Especially if you have a good trainer!!




 Luckily the woman who does this class is thee best I have ever had. She is very compassionate about it, caring and just a straight up awesome person!! I feel like she is not only there to push us to do our best, but also to help us in achieving the highest!! She is like the sister i never had!! I feel very comfortable with her as a trainer...unlike the others i have encountered. she always greets us with a smile and she is always ready to compliment us.

Her name is Juli and i personally find her to be a breath of fresh air. She is a genuinely good person as well as an excellent trainer. I look forward to many more classes and will keep you updated on my achievements :)






Yes!! this woman is an awesome trainer as well as a wonderful person!! If you're reading this Juli...thanks for welcoming me into your class and making me feel like i belong :) (((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))

I also really like the people who attend the class with me..everyone is so friendly and we all support each other with compliments and random high fives :) Could not ask for a better class!!!

Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit Review




Up until now I had never even heard of these bandz! My granddaughter was so excited to see that I was reviewing these. She just loves making bracelets and stuff.

When we first opened the box we were both wondering how in the heck does this thing work? I actually had to youtube search on how to make something with it.

The rainbow bandz are very pretty and colorful...not to mention that they are latex free!!





This kit comes with
1 Super durable loom
- 1 Hook with base opener
- 600 silicone latex free rubber bands **Non toxic, Lead and Latex Free**
- 24 S-clips

It is used to create bracelets, charms, and other interesting stuff.

The instruction manual has some pointers, tips and instructions to follow in order to come up with different desired creations – from beginner to expert level.

Once we began making them we were hooked!! You can get really creative and make all sorts of different patterns. This is something I really enjoyed doing with her.

Below is the video we used to get started:

This particular kit is sold onAmazon for $9.99 and is a really good value not to mention a high quality crafting kit that you and your kids will spend hours having fun with!!

Blacklight Flashlight Round 2! Discover the Wonders that your Pets Have Left Behind Review



This little flashlight is totally amazing! I find myself grabbing for it almost every day. Not only is it useful for tracking down pet stains, but also i have found it useful for checking my dish sponges to see how germy they become...yuck!!

I was amazed at how effective this little light is. It detects spots that you never even knew existed..in carpets, furniture, bedding etc. Do you have pets? Ever notice a smell in your home but can not quite figure out where it is coming from?


Can you smell urine EVERY room that you go into, but you have no idea where? Do you crawl around on your hands and knees sniffing the floor in the hopes to discover the location of the urine?

If you answered yes then I would highly recommend this flashlight as it will be your guide into finding those mysterious odors. As illustrated below, this little light is very strong and shows the stains very clearly for you.

It also comes in very handy to detect if certain people in your household are 'missing' the bowl, or if you the cleaner is cutting corners when they wipe down the bench top and oven.


Whatever you choose to use it for, you'll be soo glad that you did...after the initial shock of your discoveries are over.



I am definitely purchasing a few of these for friends and family as they are a lifesaver (or quite possibly a nose saver) haha when it comes to ridding your home of unwanted smells!!

Pure Raspberry Ketones Capsules (Review and giveaway)



If you have been searching for a product that helps you control your appetite AND boost your weight loss then look no further! Pure Raspberry Ketones is the perfect solution.

These capsules are perfect in every way. They control your appetite, help promote weight loss and many more! and did i mention that they are 100% natural? Unlike many other products of it's kind...they contain no harmful chemical or additives of any sort.


I have been taking these for about a week now and let me tell ya...i feel much more energized plus less hungry which means i no longer feel the need to grab a snack during the day :) 

You simply take 2 of these a day. One right before you have breakfast and the other right before you have dinner. 30 minutes prior to eating and preferrably on an empty stomach for best results.

I find that they do a great job at controlling my hunger. As far as weight loss goes I really have not noticed much change.

I also have high blood pressure and it has no effect on that either. Many worry about side effects and since these are all natural I have not had any!

Some more info:

It burns the Body Fat and Converts it into Energy when Body needs it and that is how it helps Body to Control Appetite; as a result it is Appetite Suppressant. Raspberry Ketones Works as an Efficient Weight Loss Supplement when it combined with balanced diet and Regular Exercise. When one does Exercise, it require body to burn extra energy and also burn extra calories, and if you are taking Raspberry Ketones, it burn the Existing Body fat to convert it into Energy which is required for Exercise. As a result one doesn't need extra nutrition to get energy for exercise

*Following acute administration, raspberry ketone was also shown to significantly reduce arteriosclerosis 

When I first opened this product, I was amazed at how good it smelled. It was so powerful that hours after I took it I could still taste the raspberry flavor on my tongue. Most pills taste terrible after taking them. Not this one.

Ice Ball mold (review)



I have been hearing so much about these ice balls lately so i decided i would give them a try. With the hot summer months ahead...i tend to use a lot more ice in my drinks and with the ice ball molds making ice is fun!!

These molds are not only fun but allow me to be creative as well.

With these molds all you need to do is place the funnel (included in your order) into the opening of the mold and add your water up to the fill line. Then you simply place the mold into the freezer until done. Once the balls are frozen you open up the top and slide it on out.





Now that i have discovered these amazing ice ball molds i plan on getting more! they last so much longer than regular ice cubes and look oh so pretty in my glass. I was thinking of making colored ones too. These can be used in a punch bowl to make the punch more colorful and fun.

I also love how easily they come out after freezing. 

The molds have a Life Time Guarantee, these ice balls will not leak like other inferior products
No-Mess Funnel included for filling without spilling, Easy to use fill line for perfect ice ball every time
Made of the highest quality 100% FDA food grade silicone, Dishwasher safe and BPA free
Unique packaging ideal for storing these awesome Sphere Ice Molds

These awesome molds can be found HERE !! I highly recommend these as they are very high quality and will last a very long time. You may want to order more than one set...especially if you plan on having enough for guests :)
