Beauty Uses for Coconut Oil - Beauty the Natural Way

Lately, I've been trying to change my lifestyle.  I was eating SUPER unhealthy and I was feeling like crud, needless to say this unhealthy lifestyle was showing in my face.  

I was breaking out like crazy, and being that I had acne as a teenager, and suffer from those unsightly acne scars, I was not happy!

I'm also a stay at home mom, so my budget for "beauty products" is really, really small.

TATS Original - Review

Credit | Via

Ever since friends and family found out that I review products on a blog, they go out on the hunt for unique products for me to try, taste or use. Some of the products I can definitely do without, really thanks, but no one really has any use for an electric spoon...TOTALLY KIDDING!

Enter into my life TATS Original, you can find their website here, their facebook here and their twitter...right over here. I got to try their product, I tasted all of it, even the infamous GHOST Chili items. If you're not familiar with Ghost Chili, it is one of, if not thee hottest chili pepper in the world. On the Scoville Scale it ranks 330,000 - 1,032,310 (it's kind of like eating 128 spicy jalapeƱos in ONE bite...no lie, look it up!)

But let's get back to the topic at hand....TATS Original.

I'm a Contributor! - Personal Post

I don't type up personal posts, because that's really not what my blog is intended for, but I figured since I have all of you lovely people following me, entering my giveaways, contests and voting for videos, well I owe it to you to say Thank You!

Thank you for allowing me into your lives, for taking those 2-3 minutes out of your day to read about my latest review or watch my awkward and dorky YouTube Videos (which I promise will ONLY get better over time, I mean, they can't get worse right?).

When I first started blogging, I didn't expect to be welcomed into such a great community! So many networks of extraordinary and talented Moms who are MORE than willing to lend a helping hand. It's been overwhelming to say the least. Sure, my blog is not a "major" blog by any means, but I remember my first post and getting excited because 3 people viewed it, and then I realized I hadn't unchecked the "Don't Track My Own Page Views" square...oops! 

I can tell you that 2012 was probably one of the worst years I've experienced in my life. Without getting into details, 2012 tested my faith, my patience, and my general outlook on life. It showed me that there is NO TIME like the PRESENT and I was faced with some pretty powerful challenges.  It pushed me to stop from procrastinating, it pushed me to move forward despite all obstacles and it pushed me to reach out for my dreams.  Like I say, "If you can dream it, you can achieve it" 2013 has proven just that.

I asked God and the Universe to help me achieve my goals, not in a rushed and impatient manner, but as I worked, I wanted to be able to see the fruits of my labor.  I've worked very hard to maintain the blog, yes, I don't always post, lately I've gone a few days between posting. But I always make sure I come back, refreshed and better than ever.

I'd like to thank all the blogging communities, for empowering mom's to voice their opinions and well, just to have a voice! When you have children, your voice sometimes gets lost ;]

I'm really excited to announce that I will be a contributor to a site that really helps those who are looking for a healthier approach to the foods they eat, to using everyday items and turning them into DIY beauty and health products.

I'll be posting links to my first published post (when it goes live) and I hope you'll follow along. I'll also be posting here per usual. Not to worry, I'm not going anywhere!

Easy Canvas Prints - Review

I was feeling pretty bummed that I couldn't surprise my husband with something for Father's day, first, because I don't work, so it's not like I have an abundance of "Mad Money" stashed away somewhere, and second, if I did need money it would come from my husband, which would then ruin the surprise cause he'd probably want to know what I was going to buy and then he'd realize he purchased his own Father's Day Gift, haha...not funny, but you know, humor me won't ya?

Then, like always the universe works it's magic and delivers onto my lap exciting surprises that not I even I knew I was going to get!

O Organics - Review

If you're on the go, and for the most part, mom's are usually the most on the go people, then you'll try just about anything that will make your life just a little more convenient. Why not try these great little salad bowls from Safeway "O Organics" and it's not just salad bowls, they have a large array of Organic products in store. Today, though, I'll be talking specifically about O Organics Salad Bowls.

We want Jamba Juice!

Ahhh, the sweet, sweet flavor of Jamba Juice. At our house, Jamba Juice is a rare treat, even though we have a store located just minutes from home, we don't visit as much as I'd like, ok, ok, let's be honest, as much as my tummy would like ;]
