New Garlic Press Promotion Review

Image
This makes it easy to crush garlic. I love using fresh garlic but it is such a pain to cut it up. Not to mention getting your hands very stinks. This you just peel the garlic stick it in the machine and go from there. And for something that will get used a lot this is a perfect investment or gift. I am extremely happy I got to try this out.

Here are 5 Reasons You're Going to LOVE Your Propresser Garlic Press 1. It easily minces garlic in one press! (No more sore palms or aching fingers like you get with other garlic presses) 2. Large capacity basket! (Press good sized cloves ... even if you leave the peels on) 3. No more stinky "garlic hands"! (Easy to use and even easier to clean so you won't have to worry about smelling like garlic cloves all day) 4. Heavy duty, quality construction! (BUT it weighs in at a svelte 9.3 oz so ANYONE can use it effortlessly) 5. Backed by an INSANE Double Guarantee! (Order yours now because you literally RISK NOTHING!) Order your own …

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops Review

Image
Now that the colder weather is here, I sometimes reflect back to the winters when I was a kid. Waiting for the school bus, bundled up from head to toe, there was one thing that I relished the whole day through...the package of cherry-flavored cough drops that were stashed in either my backpack or pocket. I absolutely loved the flavor so much, that I couldn't resist crunching them up in a matter of seconds. Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops have been soothing America's throats for over 140 years. My favorite of the 4 flavors ,Honey, Wild Cherry, and Licorice the honey was my favorite.

They are sold in economy size bags and convenient and refillable pucks, which are perfect for toting around in your handbag, car or backpack. I was ready to experience these softish and chewy lozenges for myself and love what I discovered! The Wild Cherry flavor was superb...not too overpowering, but definitely tasty. I also enjoyed the overall shape of the Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops. Th…

Review : Nordic Naturals Supplements

Image
Omega-3 fatty acids (also known as n-3 fatty acids) are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. We need omega-3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain, and since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fats, we must get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

There are two major types of omega-3 fatty acids in our diets: One type is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is found in some vegetable oils, such as soybean, rapeseed (canola), and flaxseed, and in walnuts. ALA is also found in some green vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, and salad greens. The other type…

Cellulite and Body Firming Cream Review

Image
Cellulite is an ugly thing, but we all have it- even supermodels! Yes, they do. It doesn’t seem to matter what diets you try or how you work out or how much you work out, you always seem to find that cellulite glaring at you in the mirror.

. I really had high hopes for this cream and figured good or bad, it couldn’t do any harm. I really like that this product is made in the USA. That’s one thing that’s a huge selling point for me. I prefer USA made products to China, etc. made products. I also like that this cream can supposedly firm, tone, and potentially eliminate cellulite. I find this a tall order to fill, but we shall see.

After actually using the product for over a week, I can see some slight improvement, but I’m sure it will take more time and use to see more of a difference. My legs seem to be a little a bit more toned, and I think I notice a little reduction in the appearance of the cellulite on my legs. I hope this is real and not in my imagination! I really do want to …

Matcha Tea

Image
Matcha is a type of green tea that comes in powdered form. Matcha tea is prepared by whisking matcha powder with hot water, which forms a frothy liquid. Matcha powder is also sometimes used as an ingredient in foods and non-tea beverages (such as smoothies). Long used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, matcha has recently gained popularity among tea drinkers in Western countries. Matcha vs. Green Tea Unlike most green teas, matcha contains the entire leaf of the Camellia sinensis (the species of plant used to make green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and white tea). In cultivating matcha, the plant is shade-grown for several weeks prior to harvest. After harvesting the plants, processors grind the leaves into a fine powder. Uses for Matcha Some proponents claim that matcha contains more antioxidants than other forms of green tea. In addition, matcha is purported to promote weight loss, lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure, support detox efforts, enhance mood, reduce s…

Coffee Dates From Hell Review

Image
Coffee Dates From Hell is another hilarious book I got to read in paperback so I could share it.His same sense of humor is shown in this book plus it also comes in ebook format if that is what you are looking for. Tilberry does explain in the beginning that there are good relationships that have been formed by meeting a person for the first time at a coffee shop. He continues on that this book is about those dates that are all wrong and turn out to be dates from hell.

We start out with people of past history, which I am pretty sure that there were no coffee shops back in some of those eras as there is today. Here is an example: Abraham Lincoln meeting Mary Todd for the first time back in 1839 for coffee, sitting there awkward and nearly messing up the date with a bad first impression to where it could very well have been their last meeting.

Couple other strange connections that are a mixture of people from the past and modern day coffee dates are: Krystal Martin meets King Henry…

Vitamin C Serum 20% with Free Bonus Review

Image
Sano Naturals Vitamin C Serum Review When it comes to skincare products, I am rather picky as I am allergic to many things .I wanted to give it a chance and Sano Naturals is skincare company that acknowledges that whatever you put on your skin inevitably gets absorbed into your body, which is why they use naturally derived, organic ingredients whenever possible. As for the Vitamin C Serum I tried, it’s one of their best sellers, and 96% naturally derived, and primarily organic. Sano Naturals’ products are produced in the USA in a GMP-certified, wind-energy powered facility, but best of all, with no animal testing, and 100% vegan formulas. The serum comes in a dark colored glass bottle, and has a little dropper attached so it is easily applied. Just squeeze the right amount into your palm, then apply it to your face, neck, and back of hands. It is odorless, colorless, and a bit watery, but that does not cause a problem with the application. Now this serum not only has anti-aging an…

Dr Teals Bath Salts

Image
I have been needing epspon salts and thought of the the Epsom salts from Dr. Teal's Therapeutic Solutions. I was very happy to get the chance to try as I have had issues falling asleep and love to soak in the tub.By combining benefits of pure Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) with essential oils, Dr. Teal's products offer an advantage over just soaking in Epsom salts after a hard workout. I got to try the "Comfort and Calm" "Comfort and Calm:" This is a blend of Epsom salts and chamomile oil. Chamomile oil is an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent with soothing qualities to relieve tension, which makes it ideal for fighting muscle fatigue or soreness. I like to use this soak before bed after a hectic or particularly stressful day or a strenuous workout. "Relax and Relief:" This soak combines Epsom salts with eucalyptus oil and spearmint oil. These are two of my favorite oils to use around the house for cleaning, since they have a fresh s…

Eating out Destiny Mall..Syracuse, NY

I'm going to compare and contrast the service that have received at Destiny that me and my other half have received the last 3 times have been able to get out. Will be talking about the 3 casual dining places as we would rather save for a better eating experience than fast food.

   TGIF-
The first time we went there we had coupons for free appetizer coupons. So we got separate checks so we could each use one. We got seated at a booth fast and I told the waitress about needing separate checks and then placed our orders. The food took a long time to get there but what we got was great. Mozzarella sticks and Loaded potato skins. I did get the feeling they took their time making the food and checking on us for that reason even though the free food was from a gift given to me. The second time went there was on my anniversary and we never even got to eat there. Got told there was a wait of 15 mins for an almost empty place unless we sat at the bar which is hard with my height and needin…

Parenting a right or a priveledge

I have been sitting here thinking about many things in my life, friends,family , loved ones . I have gotten behind in my blogging due to life changes.

  One thing that has really gotten to me lately has been the topic of parental rights. People that say they love their children yet decide they do not want to be their other half and then use the children some of whom never actually wanted to be parents in the first place as hostages.

    If a couple is married one party can pick up and leave taking the children and many times the other half can not do much because if the law does ANYTHING at all it is considered custodial interference. In most cases regardless of who is the most fit parent the mother gets custody unless the father is military then the mother gets the screw.

  Once the parent gets custody if they choose they can cut off all contact, get cash they don't use for the children on child support or even move or withhold any contact with the child or children.

  I have frien…

Stylish and Comfortable Undergarments for Women & Men Review + Giveaway

Image
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.    I have had the honor of trying products from wearever products for the second time. I must say I love them as I can wear them under my clothes and not worry about having to bring a change of outfits. My only worry is after having leakage and having to keep wearing the same panties. While I love the protection I just wish they had removal inserts if having to wait until I was in a spot to change them out 

   Other than the normal awkwardness of buying  products like that and not being very comfortable or facing the challenge of sudden clothes changes I found Wearever products. I was lucky to be able to test out a pair of the white lacy ones this time. http://www.weareverincontinence.com/. Not only do they have many nice styles for men or women the pair I got was much more comfortable than I thought it would be. Not only are these cheaper to buy than disposable they are good for the environment. My best suggestion for myself fo…

Net 10.. More like Net 0

I started with Net 10 phone service not quite a year ago come this February. My reasoning when I got the phone was I wanted a way for my children, their schools and anyone else needed to get in touch with us if we had to go out. The phone and the service I had gotten at the time was a great deal I believe I paid $25 for my blackberry type phone and had while down there got 200 mins a month for either $10 or $15 a month I forget .

  Then in July 2013 we moved back up to NY and for a few months I kept the same number but then noticed some places would not pick up or call back a long distance number. There popped up my first hassle with the company. I had gotten told I would need a new SIM card so they could give me a NY exchange number so I waited patiently. To my surprise when they swapped the number they forgot to give me my remaining minutes but after calling them back from another phone an internet based ones I was able to get my minutes back with a semi hassle.
