Happy Holidays

First off I am going to wish everyone a Happy holidays no matter which one they celebrate. It is a time for it seems to be more often these days of how much you spend on a person not the thought. Many have given up the idea behind Christmas cards which can be a way of showing others you care or a good way to catch up family photos. The holiday season has always been a time where one sees in the news how everyone does extra for those in need. 

   Myself , I have a simple plea for my readers that may not in the course of the day outside this time of the year think about. Don't just give during the holidays, food banks are always in need. If every family just spent $5 - 10 a week on non perishable food to donate to a church or food bank it would be rare them not being able to help for running out of food. Donate decent shape clothes one does not wear to places that help those in need of clothes. Or even something simple like having extra water to hand out to the homeless you see beg…

90 day weight loss challenge HCG drops

It started out great . The drops are easy to swallow and the bottles they come in are perfect to reuse to put massage oils or any liquid in. I have lost inches all over my body in the first few weeks and the biggest was going down 4 inches in my waist. My biggest suggestion for improvement at this point is adding something to take away the alcohol flavor. The method of the weight loss helper by under the tongue is a novel one as most diet aids come in pill form. This is ideal for those that want diet helpers in a more concentrated or liquid form as most diet pills are huge. Another good thing about this is I have not noticed and side effects like those that have caffeine as the caffeine has made me pass out from those. At current time I am still doing the diet though my weight and waist size have gone up due to medical issues that will have me in the hospital on Dec 20th. I am still losing inches in other needed areas. I know what was added will quickly come back off. This is …

Diet Doc Pre-Packaged Weight Loss

Diet Doc Steak Soup – 20 calories per serving – just add meat and vegetables _ my favorite of all the soups I just added some lean steak and carrots. Fairly filling

 Diet Doc Hot & Sour Soup – 20 calories per serving – just add tofu or chicken The hot & sour soup was a bit more complicated than expected as I precooked the chicken and added an egg which I had to swirl in the hot soup. Normally I love this type of soup
 Diet Doc Chicken Gumbo – Add chicken and vegetables Was not that bad but I still liked the steak best.

These soups though fairly good are not exactly what I expected. I was hoping more for something you added water and cooked. For these you have to buy extra ingredients , soak and cook. Depending on what you add it can affect the calories and other nutrient values. This is great when you have the time to prep but not the greatest for a quick meal on the go unless you premake it. 
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using <a rel=&quo…

Decadence Gourmet Cheesecakes

The best thing I have gotten to eat in a long time was the 1 of a kind cheesecakes this place has. There are many types that I never thought could be in a cheesecake but taste wonderful. As can be seen they come in a beautiful crate.

   Not only are they tasty but how they come are so crafty with how the packaging can be reused. Since they start out from the where they come from frozen they place them in a reusable styrofoam cooler , wrapped in a thermal wrap ,in a wooden crate , in glass jars. And there is also an ice pack. Everything except the thermal wrap can be reused in some way or another. The cooler can be perfect to bring your cold lunch somewhere. The icepack has endless uses. Use the wooden crate as a base for a gift basket or even storage space. My favorite reusable item is the very jars you get the cheesecake in. The size of the jars are perfect for bath salts, making your own candles or storing small things you could lose/ Now on to the main deal the cheesecakes them…

Krave Jerky review & Giveaway

Starting off when I looked at this site Krave Jerky I fell in love because I love jerky and all the flavors made it so much better.

I got to try and am able to giveaway to one of my readers a box with the same 5 flavors I got to sample. This is the juiciest jerky you will ever get to try. I used to think all jerky regardless if it was beef, pork or turkey was dry and you had to chew a long time to get the flavor with this the flavor hits you and keeps coming up at you.I just wish I could have tried the basil or pineapple ones to balance out the chili types more.

  Lemon Garlic my personal favorite of the bunch . It is a perfect blend of garlic and lemon with the turkey jerky which is funny if you say it fast. It's not too sweet and not too spicy so you could just sit there and eat the whole bag in one setting like I did.

  Smoky Grilled Teriyaki was a bit more sugary than I expected so I ended up giving that to my 16 year old daughter. It is very moist and tender for pork jerky just …

Sneaky Pete's

This I have to say is the most unique type of drink I have ever tried before. Not only because it is extremely low on calories it is good for your heart and has OATS in it yes you heard me Oats.This is a great way to sneak fiber in your diet without using extra and bad tasting supplements.

   I got 5 different flavors to try from Sneaky Petes even though I only got to try 3 of them as my oldest tried one then forgot to refridge it so that spoiled on her. The flavors are Apples Away, Grape Escape, Mango Mystique , Peach Perfection and Raspberry Burst. I did not get to try the apple or the raspberry. I did want to try to warm up the apple with some cinnamon and honey since its cool out. The raspberry also sounded like it would be good.

  My favorite of the 3 I did try would be the peach perfection, and I wish that came in gallon size. The flavor for that just burst on my tongue. The next flavor I tried i forgot to shake up well enough which was the mango so I got a full force taste o…

Lucky 107 makeup

When I saw one of my classmates for college had a website that sold hand packaged mineral makeup that was also vegan I had to try it out. So I messaged her about bought the Hallow's Eve set and the press kit for experienced media guru's. I was not disappointed when I finally got the makeup as it was all pretty and she even threw in some extras because there had been a delay in shipping.

  As can be seen even the samples are bigger than I expected when compared to the full sized product.One of the items I tried that I never heard of before then was the sample of the lotion bar. at first I thought " ohh nicely scented soap at a big size" after looking at the ingredients I finally figured out it was a moisturizer and on trying it I love it. It is a great way of adding lotion to your body and not having to worry about your hands getting covered in gunk you have to wipe off or extra lotion on your body. The scent I got was Harvest Moon and I loved the smell.

  As I ha…

Country Bob's Sauce

Today I got in my mail to try out 2 bottles of Country Bob's all purpose sauce. To start out with I think they packaged in a novel way with the packaging being recycled paper.

  On getting the bottles out of the box I had to test try it and I must say I loved it. I am a big fan of steak sauce as I cook a lot of meat and this is the best i have ever tried even better that the stuff they use at steakhouses. I can't wait to try some of the other things they carry like the BBQ sauce or the seasoning salt as my other half loves using that. Country Bob's seems to ha a little bit of everything from sauce to salt even cookbooks and clothes.I myself want the gift pack to try all the types they have.

  Foodwise tonight I used some of the sauce on my steak I had for dinner. It greatly helped disguise the fact my daughter's 17 yr old boyfriend over-spiced and over cooked it. Before then I used it to create the meat sauce I am using as a base for a pasta sauce for my oldest turni…

90 day Challenge

A little bit about me to start off with. I am a 34 year old married mom of 4 from Chattanooga, Tn.As in the case of many mothers my weight has slowly crept up on me to its current weight.Between caring for my kids , my 6 cats and 3 puppies along with college I don't get much time to relax much less workout like I should. I am 4'11" and around 185 pounds. I used to at one point be a size 8 am now in a 14/16. I have tried diets before but they never worked either due to side effects or really wacky ways of following it .At current time I am hoping and working at losing between 50 to 60 pounds.

  I heard about this one program 90 Day weight Challenge and decided to check it out. On the suggestions of the person I talked with I plan on doing the hCG 1234 one. The reason I like this beyond one can be more aggressive on the weight loss one can pick various levels of calorie intake.Since I am very active between cleaning my house and running errands and such I need a higher …

Van's Natural Foods

The first thing I must say about the foods from the brand of Van's is I wish they came in the bakery section. The reason why is this when I picked up 2 types of waffles, waffle sticks,pancakes and 3 packages of  English muffins my kids wanted to tear into the food at once until I told them they had to wait till they got home.

  On getting home within 2 days they finished everything except the muffins because they loved how they tasted. The types of waffles had been apple cinnamon and Belgium, though spouse was upset he did not get to try any of the waffles so I had to go back and buy him another package. Myself all I got to try had been the muffins and loved the taste even if I'm not a big fan of frozen muffins. 

 As far as the ingredients they are all natural and I had originally thought that would make them taste off as some do but these are great. The only thing it took getting used to is the muffins seem to have a higher fiber content than I am used to.Another good facto…

Goats Milk Gift Card Giveaway

The folks that so nicely let me try their soap Goats Milk Stuff have decided to let me do a giveaway of a gift card. I am someone who has to be very careful of what I use on my skin because of allergies and I love this soap.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


First off let me begin by saying I never thought of myself as the type to be a regular at a bar much less a Dance/ Cabaret place. I've always hated bars, the noise, the crowds, rude folks and loud noise, not to mention the expense.After going to one for my 21st birthday and the random few times after I thought to myself"There's not a chance in Hades I'd ever go to a bar again." And even though I love hanging out with friends I'm scared of my own shadow at times to even say hello to new people.

   Now when earlier this year a friend invited us to go to Images with them and they said they would pay the cover I thought what the heck needed to get out of the house. Wasn't sure what to expect at the time since never been to that type of place. First thought well this was a fun experience to watch the show from my hiding place in a corner booth.

  This place was nothing like I expected a bar to be like. And you hear people say at times though they are wron…

Goats Milk Soap

A week ago I got the privileged of getting to try out some soaps from Goats Milk Stuff. On getting to my mailbox opening it the most lovely scent in the world drifted out. I brought in the house to open it to check out my soaps. I then laid them out in a box I had to look at them better. My only small issue with the packaging was the samples was loose in the outer packaging so the scents blending. My suggestion for that is to put the samples in paper or plastic baggies to keep the scents together and not chance losing any.

  The first soap I tried was the Tea Tree oil one after I split the bar in half to make it last. I choose this type as I have problem skin and wanted to see if it helped with irritations and such. The soap smells just like the oil without being overbearing like the oil is. It feels great on the skin and the soap suds up well. I washed using the soap and was happily surprised at how good my skin was and the fact there was no after scent other than a clean smell.

Nutra-Lift Herbal Non soap

I must say when I got to try this I wasn't sure what to think by the name .Herbal non soap cleanser ,what a novel idea wondering how well something without soap would work.

   It came by Fedex fairly fast shipping after I got the notice it was shipped out. my 15 yr old daughter got given the package and opened it while I was out running errands.

   When I got home she had already opened the package and taken a smell of the bottle. In her words " It smells so good it smells bad" , and then proceeded to use it when she took her shower for the night. Its now all she will use to wash her face.

   Me , I smelled it and it has a citrus smell to me , strong enough to smell but not too overpowering. I next look at the ingredients and to my surprise the first ingredient is aloe vera gel so I knew it would be good for my skin. I liked the listing of all the other organically grown ingredients in this also.

   Now for my trial by fire. I get my face wet, later and keep it on for th…

Philips Norelco 'do-it-yourself' hair clipper Pro Review/giveaway

Review by Lisa of ‘Mom’s Gone Bronson’.

As a mother, and wife, living in a household with boys who seldom like to have their hair cut, it has never been a top priority for us to buy clippers to keep in the home – until recently, that is, when my husband decided to shave his head, using a standard razor!

Never one to tell my husband what he can and can’t do with his own body, I gave him a helping hand with the regular razor until we’d shaved his head totally bald! Not overly keen on the new look, I asked that when it grows out a little that he keep it at a shorter length if he so desired - but with hair, rather than none at all! I declared that I would never use a razor to shave his hair that short again and that perhaps next time we could borrow our friend’s clippers instead! He agreed.

Subsequently, and with great timing, I was recently given the opportunity to try out a set of Philips Norelco ‘do-it-yourself’ hair clippers, which as the name suggests, are designed in such a way that i…

Kids Lac

This is a unique product for children a Probiotic. It is in easy to use packet form where a child can mix it in with something or eat it plain like it was a pixie stick.The packets are small in size and more than 1 a day can be used for best health.Kidslac a great probiotic specially flavored for children.

   I had my 15 year old daughter test this product out and well it was interesting to say the least. Some things just do not mix with a sour apple flavor like coffee. The best things to mix this would be ice cream , yogurt , apple sauce and water. Or just eat it plain if that's how your kid likes it. 

   Of course when it starts working you may notice your child going to the bathroom more often as the good bacteria will help remove the excess junk from the digestive track.

Aveeno Clear Complexion

Benefits There is a mild clean scent here with a little going a long way. It works very well
Drawbacks Zero drawbacks for this at least for me
Details I am 34 years old with sensitive/acne-prone skin. I decided my skin can be in better shape. I decided it was time to start using facial products. I went all-out for Aveeno's line: Clear Complexion (foaming cleanser, daily moisturizer, and correcting treatment). I have been using these products for a 3 months now and am experiencing an all-around difference! These products are extremely gentle and they products smell and feel clean.Never having a professional facial before it seems like how one would feel.These products last a little pump or squirt goes a long way. My face is beginning to clear-up and my pores are starting to get smaller so they will not get acne as easily. I also noticed benifits for the rest of my body using it as an all over scrub.
Conclusions I love these products

Price Very reasonable plan on stocking up on these produ…

Noxicare. Natural Pain Relief

I was given the chance to try out Noxicare , a natural pain reliever. Personally I thought this was great as a fuller figured woman with sensitive skin I often get backaches but don't want to break out or smell like I'm using something for pain relief.

   I get the cream in the mail and take a look at the ingredients. Some of them like willow bark I know the healing properties of others I'm not sure of. One of the best features of this product is there are only 7 ingredients and you can pronounce the names easily. Of course there are some sets of people like those who are pregnant , nursing or underage who should not use this due to the fact it is a medical cream.

   Now I open up the bottle and take off the foil safety cap. I take a sniff , no smell at all and a creamy white color. I try a dab on my wrist to feel the texture , rubbing it in to see how it feels.The cream is just the right texture not to heavy but just heavy enough to not leak out of the tube on accident l…

Planters Berry Burst

Decided today was the perfect day to open the second jar of the energy mix peanut butter. This type Berry Burst and made some slices of French bread covered with this for a quick morning pick me up after a long night.

   On looking at the ingredients other than the knowing it was crunchy peanut butter , I saw the berry that was in this was dried cranberry. I thought this was rather strange as my first thought would have been blueberries for the health benefits they have.

  So I put about a teaspoon and a half each on three slices of bread and grab a glass of ice water. I take my food into my room to try and take my morning medicine. Slowly taking a bite as I am thinking its a strange combination , I can taste the sweetness of the berry combining with the stickiness of the peanut butter. I then drink some of my water and think about how it tastes between bites.

  For the price finding it at $2.00 a jar at Walmart it makes it around 20cents a serving to fix. The taste is not too overp…

Passion Mango Pepsi

I must say on seeing that Pepsi had out Mango flavored diet soda I had to get a bottle to try. Now I semi like the Cherry Flavor they have out and know they have truly exotic flavors they sell overseas.

  So I grab a bottle of this as I was in the store picking up med refills and needed something to drink while waiting to pick up my 9 year old up from school. 

    I slowly take a sip and think to myself well this is different on tasting the flavor. I drink some more and even though I like fruity drinks I can tell that this is something I don't care for so I stopped drinking it.

   I finally end up giving the soda to my 9 year old when I picked her up and she seemed to really like it. My final thoughts is diet fruity cola drinks are something I'll take a pass on in the future.

Planters Nutrition Mix

I just got from a Klout perk 3 types of Planters Nutrition Energy mix.I opened up the banana granola nut mix and took a big sniff. It smelled just like banana nut bread.

   So I took out a spoonful and had my youngest whom I had picked up from school try it. She loved it and wanted more. I showed the types to my other 3 kids and they all liked them. I plan on finishing the one jar before opening the other 2 though I know it will be very fast as everyone loves peanut butter and it being flavored makes it even better.I bet they will taste just as good/

  Not only does it taste good but very health with all natural ingredients. With the fact it is not high in sugar and has a good amount of protein among vitamins and minerals it makes it a great choice for a healthy snack , pick me up or a fast meal on the run.

Purina Cat Treats

With me having multiple cats it is extremely important to have treats they all enjoy. Their favorite is getting Frisky treats. As can be seen for just a few treats 3 of my cats are surrounding my hand.

    The flavor they went wild over today was part of the Party Mix the Wild West mix. I had to be very careful giving them this treat as not to get my hand nipped as they all wanted a treat at the same time.

   One of the best of this it is very affordable to buy for those who want a treat their pet will love.Even having an easily visible use by date at the bottom.Beyond the fact they are easy to find in many locations with a huge range of flavors perfect for even the finickiest feline you may own.And feeding instructions along with ingredient list is another good thing one can easily see.

Tips for Entering Giveaways

Now at first thought one would think entering a giveaway is so easy that tips are not really needed. Not so as there are many types of giveaways be it from a Fan Page or from the maker of the product itself.

   Most important thing you need to do is write down what you enter and important information like how long it runs and who is running it. Many times you have a limited time to get back to someone before losing your prize. You do not want this to happen because you skipped checking your email for a day, it ended up in spam or you deleted it on accident. I know this as I lost an email for a contest I won that way.

   Next on entering make sure it is a real giveaway. There are some out there there are just scams to either get your information or will virus your computer.This goes along with the writing down of what you entered as not everything you get in your email that says winner is real, the majority of it being some scam saying you won some huge amount of cash if you only sen…

Helping A family Adopt

This is a good place to help

Purina Cat /Kit & Kaboodle

I must say I love this type of food not only for the decent price but the fact my household of cats and kittens love this brand of food. I have a decent amount of furry babies both kittens and adults.The variety of flavors ensures none of them get bored.
   At current time my household goes through 4 bags of the biggest size the 16 pound bag a month in feeding and taking care of the animals in my cat sanctuary. As my neighborhood knows me and my family rescue cats and more so kittens having something affordable that fills up my furry babies without being hugely expensive.
  At current time I have 5 adult cats ranging from ages 5 years to 1 year. My kittens are all around the 2-4 month age and have 7 of them as got 2 more today from a family trying to find homes for kittens at the local Walmart.

I would have to say is my favorite site to get deals on things for my family. I have gotten a few things from them a few free and others that I have bought like jewelry and makeup so far.

    I must say their sale prices are very good and the quality of the products are great.I love the Elf makeup kit I got. I know my girls will love the heart pendants and the few other things are lovely. The free crazy straw glasses too a minute to get together but my 15 year old quickly snatched that up and the mystery stainless steel ring I snagged for 1.99 that did not fit my husband.

 And the fact they give you the tracking for each package is perfect so you know where each item is shipped from and when to expect it. I think from now on this will be one of my first sites to go to for things for gifts for my family and friends

New to here

Seeing as this is my first blog on here this will be fairly simple. I find even though some people thinking learning knew things ends when you get out of school you are always learning something new. For example I have  lived at my current place 4 years and I did not know have the things I have learned in the past few months.

 I have learned it is fun to go walking downtown between 2 bridges at night just to avoid Fridays in summer to avoid road closings. I have found new places to take my kids to have fun and go swimming. I found a nice place for other half and me to unwind. Lastly after the last roadtrip how wonderful and rapidly changing the countryside can be from mountains to raging rapids. Also mist so thick the road can not be seen to so bright you think you have went glare blind in an instance. Its even more unique when you have 3 adults and 5 kids in a minivan going travelling.
