Organic Rosehip Oil--Valentia Skin Care

I can not slow down the aging process. Yes I am only 31, but that doesn't mean I haven't started thinking about what I will do when my skin starts to sag and wrinkle. I think about it all the time actually. Sometimes, I want to age gracefully, and others I want to turn back the hands of time and look young as long as possible. I know my husband will love me either way, so whatever I choose, he will be happy.

Organic Rosehip oil, will help with a variety of things--


  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Reduces scars and burns.
  • Rehydrates skin.
  • Evens skin tone.
  • Strengthens hair and nails.
Everyone knows how much I like to use and try out multi use products. They save so much time and money! Instead of using 5 or more different products, you can use one for all of these awesome things!


This product, was attractive and packaged well. The seal was easy to break, actually too easy, I twisted it and the whole topper came right out and then I just slipped the seal off the bottom. I don't think it would come off just sitting there though, you have to at least try. 

There is a what I call an eye dropper or medicine dropper inside for easy application of the product. It is a liquid of course and you don't want to waste it by using too much, so the dropper works well giving you only what you need. there is a light smell to me, but I can't smell well anyway, so the smell might be stronger then what I think.

Organic Rosehip oil, is really easy to use. Make sure you are applying it to clean skin. A little bit goes a long way with this product. I have been using it for a few weeks now, and I haven't noticed any change in the wrinkles (I am sure you have to use it longer to see results) but I have noticed that the skin on my face, isn't dry anymore. It really makes the skin feel good. I haven't notice it making my skin oily or causing any acne.

I enjoy this product. I added it into my beauty routine. I don't always remember or want to do my routine, but I know that this product will leave skin looking amazing and one day (hopefully) I can see it work on the wrinkles I acquire in the aging process. I haven't tried it out on the other claims, but when I do, I will update my status and let everyone know just what I think and how well this product worked on them!

Super Bright Rim Lights---Speed Racer

When I was a kid, there were many things you could do to make your bike look "cool" but I never really go into those things. My bike was just something to get me from one place to another. I never drove my bike at night so I wasn't worried about people being able to see me and my bike. Nowadays though, kids and adults alike are out there at night riding bikes in dangerous situations. If cars can't see you then they may hit you.

Super bright rim lights, are just what they sound like. They go onto the stem of the tire (where you put the air in) and are ready to go. There are a few things you have to do first though before you can light up the night. Since there are no instructions, I had to go to the product page on Amazon, and learn how to get these to work. You have to unscrew them and take a piece of paper out. The paper keeps the lights from going off while they are sitting or being shipped, so they won't go dead before you even get them on your bike. After you take the paper out, you screw it back together and then there is another piece they have to be screwed into. I couldn't get them to go on the stem this way, so I took the one piece and screwed it onto the bike and then screwed the "light" onto it that way. If there are spokes on your bike, you will be in an awkward position trying to get them to screw on.


I got three sets of these, Green, which is my favorite and a very pretty color. Blue, which I can't get them to unscrew to get the paper out, so I have no idea what they look like, and a multicolored set. You get 2 a piece of each color of course since you have 2 tires on your bike. They aren't that well made, it always seems like they are going to break when I am screwing them together or onto the bike.


The colors are pretty cool..when I could get them to work. In the bag, they all light up every time the bag is moved. I even got them to light up by moving them with my hand, but on the bike, they don't work as well. I don't know if I didn't screw them in right or we didn't ride the bike far enough. They do light up, but nothing like the picture on the Amazon product page. The kids love them though so it all worked out in the end. They remind me, of the light up shoes that little kids wear. I think that is why they like them so much.


All in all, these make my kids happy, so I am happy too. They work for the most part and now I don't have to worry about s when we are out on a bike ride and we don't get back before dark. These would be great for anyone who rides their bike at night or who has kids that ride their bike at night.

They show these on Motorcycles and Vehicles as well, I can see putting them on a motorcycle, but it would be kind of hard to use them on a vehicle, unless you buy more then one package. Always check the rules in your state before purchasing these for you automobile. Some states don't allow things like that. I am in no way telling you that it is ok or to put them on your automobile. I am only saying, they say it is possible. These can go on items with a stem and wheel, so the choices are endless, but that doesn't mean your state will allow it.

Chinese Lanterns

When you have an event like a party or wedding, you have to have things for decorations. So many decorations are cheaply made and money is wasted on broken decorations. These chinese lanterns from Party City and Beyond are different. They appear to be cheaply made when you first see them, but I put these suckers to the test!


The first thing I noticed when I got these lanterns, is the fact that there were no instructions. I wasn't home at the time I was looking these over so I couldn't get on the internet to find out how to put them together. It seems so simple, lift the sides and make a circle, but there are metal pieces included and you have to figure out how they go inside. I tried and tried to put the metal piece inside one of the lanterns and I could not get it to fit inside. Finally, I decided to just jam it in there and risk breaking the lantern. You know what...I think I figured it out! It may not be the way to do it but it works and the lanterns are just fine afterwards. The metal pieces have circles at the top for easy hanging.


When they sent these lanterns, they also sent an e-book with ideas on what to do with the lanterns besides hanging them up from the ceiling or just placing them on a table. I am in love with the ideas in there and I will be using at least one of them in August. My friend is getting married, I am the maid of honor and these decorations are really going to help us out!

The lanterns are a white color which some might think is bland, but white always goes with whatever colors you choose. So it is always a safe bet to go with a neutral color for events that are not your own, or even if they are for you and you needed some more decorations in a bind. Plus you can change them and add decorations with markers or paint and really make them fit into the event. They are beautiful without altering them though.

I wish there was some sort of spot to in a flameless tea light candle. I think these lanterns would be beautiful in a dark room all light up. Maybe through in a simple instruction sheet to help people like me put them together. I had no real issues with these. I poked them, hit, dropped them etc and couldn't get them to break. I am going to use these for every event I have until they do finally tear up.

Check these out on Amazon by clicking here. You can find out more about them, see what other people are saying about them, and buy some for yourself, 10 for $9.99. Less then a dollar a piece.

BBQ Gloves--Kitchen Mastery

There is nothing worse then trying to fumble with a hot pad while you are trying to get something out of the oven or off the grill. I have gotten so many burns on my hands from hot cookie sheets and pans. Our hot pads always seem to get lost exactly the same time I need to take something out of the oven. I was so tired of burning myself..and then I got approved to review bbq gloves from Kitchen Mastery.


These gloves, are big enough to fit all hand sizes unless you have giant hands. They slip on and off really quickly on dry hands. Simply slip them on and do what you have to do on the grill or in the oven and then slip them back off.


I assumed these would protect me. If you just take something out of the oven or off the grill and then sit it straight down, then you will be fine. If it is something that you have to hold on to for awhile, then you may have problems. I tested these when I pulled out a cookie sheet. After about 30 seconds, I started to feel how hot the sheet was, through the gloves. I had to put it right down. From there on out, I always made sure I had a space to put whatever it is down before I take it out of the oven. I didn't get burned, but I could feel the heat and that was enough for me.


I really like these gloves, I tend to only use one of the other though. Usually there is only one thing coming out of the oven at a time. But it would be smart to use both of them if you can't lift whatever it is with one hand. I use these every time I grill or use my oven. I know these are called bbq grill gloves, but it is winter and there is snow on the ground so there is no grilling going on right now. So for now, these work perfectly for me while baking.


Head on over to Amazon by clicking here. You can find out more about the product, see what others are saying about the product and buy a pair for yourself for only $20!! These are worth it. Throw out all those hot pads and use these instead!

Glow to Go

When winter comes around everyone seems to get pasty. The tans start to fade away and you are left with that crazy white skin. Tanning beds to me, are not ideal. I would rather be out in the real sun instead of cooking myself in a tanning bed. There are many lotions you can use to give you a nice color. Use too much though, and you will end up looking like an Oompa Loompa. If you put the lotions on wrong, then you will end up with embarrassing streaks all over your body. Not an attractive look at all.

Glow to Go, are wipes. They look just like diaper wipes. Simply undress, and use the wipe all over your body. Wait about ten minutes and then you can put your clothes back on. Make sure after using the wipes, you wash your hands very well so that your palms aren't tanned as well. Use caution around elbows and knees for the same reason.

Since I have gained weight, I am not as comfortable with my body. So I only used Glow to Go on my arms. That is pretty much the only parts of me that I show off. I used one wipe over both of my arms. I probably could have used it up and gotten half of my body done, maybe more. But as I said, no one sees the rest of my body except my husband and he doesn't care how tan or how white I was. I had a t shirt on, so I didn't have to wait the 10 minutes. I just rolled up the sleeves and went on with what I was doing.

This system is quick and easy. After only one wipe I barely had a change. Well I couldn't tell of any tan that had occurred. Every body is different though, what works or doesn't work for me may or may not work for you. It does say on the box, to keep using the wipes until the desired tan/color is attained.

I like Glow to Go. It is simple and easy to use and it won't cause streaks or make me orange. I just wipe on my tan until it is the shade that I want. Great for people who don't have time to get out into the sun or to a tanning bed.

Love Trap--Amnon Jackont

Aren't we all just looking for love? Why is something so attainable seem so far off? So many of us have made the wrong choices in the love department, I can say I have more then a few times. But I finally found the one. I had to let him go for a little while, but then he came back to me. I am not in a foreign land though, I am in America where I feel safe and I know the language. What would you do if you were in a foreign country and felt all alone?

Love Trap, starts off pretty slow. I had to make myself keep reading. When it picks up though, you can really get lost in this book. It really starts to get interesting at maybe the half way point. Before that we are getting the info on all the main characters..but not all the info. By the end of the book, most of the info became clear.

Daphne, is a mom, divorcee, and a doctor. Early in the book, we find out that she made some wrong choices and ended up in prison with her license revoked. That is how she ended up in Israel. A foreign country where she hoped to start over and get her life back. For awhile, it was just her and her daughter. She then puts herself back into a bad situation and takes a crazy job. She was told if she took this job, they would get her license back so she could practice in Israel.

She was apprehensive, but knew she had to take the job. Basically the book follows her through the adventures of work and she meets all the different characters. Tamera, is a woman she works with. Natalie, or Tali, as she liked to be called, falls in love with Tamera. Daphne gets jealous of their relationship because it is not one that she holds with her daughter. In many ways, she is an absentee mom. Letting her daughter do whatever she wanted to and not spending much time with her. You can tell she loves her, but it seems like it is her time to be selfish and think more about herself then her daughter.

Since it had been a long time since her and her husband divorced, she seemed willing to jump in the sack with any guy she got close to. First it was Arnon, which didn't end well. It had been awhile so she should have been satisfied, but the sex with Arnon was just not what she was looking for. After Amos had an accident, they started spending time together. It seems she was obsessed with his mysterious ways just as she was with Arnon. Amos couldn't leave the institute though, so he was easier to "trap" then Arnon.

Gordon, got her to do things that she shouldn't have. Amos already knew that it was her but didn't seem phased by it. He continued to push her away (even though they were having sex) and she continued to fall in love with him. Daphne finds out that Tamera is not trying to kill her and what is wrong with Tamera.

Tamera decided to help Daphne, Natalie, and Amos leave Israel. Before they could get on the plane though Gordon finds them. Their plan is ruined. Amos leaves and they stay, at the end we find out that Tamera did live for years after she thought she would die. By the very end, they saw a picture of Amos on the front page of a newspaper and she was thinking about calling him.

Leaves me wondering, if their situation would have turned out like Jay and I's. I wonder if they finally got together. If he had used her the whole time and never really cared for her then I doubt it. But if there was true love between them, he might be ready finally to settle down and love her. I also wonder if Daphne became a good mom. She wasn't horrible before, but she had a lot of work to do in order to become a good mom.

I enjoyed this book, like I said above, it is slow going for a bit but if you can get past it, then you will really get sucked into the book. I didn't find myself feeling bad for anyone in the book. You don't really get up close and intimate with any of them. Usually, that is a bad thing. With this book though, it seems pretty fitting. You have to know the story line, not crazy details about the people.

Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts

Every now and again, I wish to be pampered. Usually I am a tom boy that doesn't care about frills. Adovia Dead sea bath salts, isn't really for frills or thrills. It doesn't have a pretty color or smell like most bath products, because it doesn't do the same thing.

Every day, my muscles and joints hurt badly. I thought that I was doomed to go through life hurting every single minute of the day. When I got picked to review these salts, I wasn't sure what to expect from them. I knew that water in general helps with making you not hurt as bad, but I didn't know if the salts would add any benefit to the process or not.


For the life of me, I could not find any directions on how to use the product, anywhere on the packaging. I just turned the bag over and dumped some into the water that was filling the tub. Afterwards, from reading the Amazon product page, I found out that you are suppose to use a cup of the product. I used about that much, which made me happy because I was worried about using too much of the salts.

I got into the warm water and didn't notice much of a difference at first. After soaking for a little bit, I felt more relaxed and it did feel like the salts were working. My aches were starting to ease up, my feet even felt like they were going numb. After I was done, I stood up and rinsed off. It felt like I shed a layer of my skin.

I really like these bath salts, they worked really well for me. I am not sure how often you are suppose to take a salt bath, so I think I am going to take them weekly from here on out, or as needed for my pain. There are no bubbles, or good smelling oils here, this is a product for grown ups with grown up problems.

Head on over to Amazon by clicking here. While there, you can find out more about the product, see what other people have to say about it, and buy some dead sea bath salts for yourself for the low price of $11.95.

10 in 1 Bike Wrench--CLD Brands

When you have a bike, you know how often they break. When they break, it seems impossible to find a wrench small enough to fit them. when you are in a hurry, it seems like they are even more impossible to find. When you are on the go and your bike breaks down, you don't want/need to be stuck or use 10 different wrench's to fix your bike. Who wants to lug all those around while they are on a bike ride anyway?


CLD Brands, felt your pain, and they came out with the 10 in 1 Bike wrench. It is all the wrench's you need on one handy tool. It is lightweight and easy to carry/store on your bike. It is really thin, but built well and doesn't seem like it would break if you used it on something that is rusted.


My husband is always working on and fixing his bike. At the moment it is our only transportation so we need to make sure it is working correctly. My son has always been taking apart his bikes since he got his first one. I don't know how many bikes he has ruined by doing this. when his step dad (my husband) came into the picture, they have been doing it together. Every time my husband fixes his bike, my son is right out there with him.


This tool is just what they needed. It is a bit harder to use on the insides of the bike, but if it is a spot with a bunch of clearance around it, it would for sure be the best tool you can own for a bike. We set it up on my husbands bike, with rope. Now no matter where they are, they can always fix their bikes if they need to. We really love this tool and it gets a lot of use around here!


Head on over and check it out on Amazon by clicking here. You can find out more about the product, see what other people are saying about this bike wrench and buy one for yourself, for the low price of $13.

Garcinia/cleanse weight loss kit--Team Innovations Lab

My New Year's resolution, is to stop smoking and to lose weight. I have Fibromyalgia, so it is hard for me to get in the exercise needed. I have heard good things about Garcinia and cleanse method. So I was really excited to be able to review this system.


When I get pills, the first thing I do is open them and see how big they are and how badly they smell. These are the normal size pills that I am getting use to. Not small but not really big and they go down easily. The smell isn't too bad. I didn't cough or gag like I do with some of the vitamins I have taken.

Slender Cleanse Advanced claims to help you to--



  • Lose Weight Fast
  • Increase Energy
  • Naturally Detoxify/Decrease Bloating
  • Promote Regularity
Take 1 pill twice a day, 30 minutes before a meal with at least 8 oz. of water. 


Garcinia Cambogia Advanced claims to help with--


  • Limit fat production
  • Burn existing fat for energy
  • Boost energy and mood naturally
  • High level of HCA helps stop the stress hormone Cortisol
Take two capsules daily. 

I have been taking this system for a few weeks now. I take the pills at the same time. Which makes it easier to remember to take them both. I have a hard time remembering to take my pills. I have noticed that a lot of the bloating has been taken care of with this system. Seems like a lot of water weight has disappeared as well. When I look at myself, I can see it. When I look at the scale though, it's a different story. I am going to stick with it though and finish the bottle. (Of course I forget to take them a few times) I am happy with the results so far.

You need to head over to Amazon by clicking here. Find out more about this system, see what other people think about the system, and/or buy the system for yourself for the low price of $39.95.
