Finally A Button


I finally learned how to create a button for my blog with the tutorial help from Manic Check out her blog, and see what she offers to her readers. Until now, I hadn't figured out how to install a button, so I appreciate the time she took to teach others how this works. I do not yet know how to install a name or writing on it yet. Is there a site where I could learn how, or does anyone out in the Blogosphere now how to do this? I would greatly appreciate it so much! Thanks again to Manic Mother for your help!

Enjoy Lighting Candles Review & Giveaway

I recently was sent two candles from Enjoy Lighting, and let me tell you how impressed I was. First of all the two candles I was sent were scented, and I love scented candles, so not only do they look real, they smell awesome, and there is no need to worry about a fire.
Secondly each Enjoy Lighting Candle came with 3 LED lights inside, that are placed to create a realistic color and flickering effect, that makes it look like a real flame. You will forget that it's fake, and try to blow it out. These candles are made with wax. Each candle takes four batteries at a time, so I hope you are using Energizer Charged batteries if you want to keep these going for hours. I would think that regular batteries would run out quick. The LED bulbs in the candles will last over 100,000 hours,and there is a timer on them, so if you choose to keep them on for a short bit of time, just set the timer. Sounds cool right??

One of the switches turn them on and off, and the other on is for the timer. So, why should you own Enjoy Lighting Candles? They warm the atmosphere with candlelight without the unwanted fire risks, and we know how many fires are from candle each year. All I know is way too many, and some of them were my friends. Enjoy Lighting offers a generous supply of different styles, colors and fragrances, that are sure to match your decor. Enjoy Lighting Candles are safe in your home, and are safe around your pets. I have two cats who like to jump on tables. One time one of them caught her white tail on fire from a candle. I hope she lost her lesson.

Now this is one of my favorites from Enjoy Lighting. I love putting my candles in a hurricane lamp, and the sand on the bottom of it just gives it the romantic set that one might need. I need to find one more candle, so I can make my living room look like the one in the pic above.

Why Flameless Candles? (Taken from website)

Safety – Traditional wicked candles cause over 15,000 house fires each year. With flameless candles, there is no fire risk if a candle is knocked over or placed too close to a curtains or furniture. Flameless candles are 100% safe around children and pets.

Decor – Use flameless candles in areas where wicked candles can’t go – in a floral arrangement or centerpiece, near curtains or drapes, on shelving or book shelves, in children’s bedrooms, and more.

Enjoy Lighting flameless candles provide the look of traditional candles with real wax, realistic flickering effect, and light fragrances.

Convenience – Candles won’t blow out when used outdoors. Some models include a built-in timer allowing the candle to turn on and off when you want it to, every day, at the same time. Set it once and your candle will automatically turn on and provide ambiance every day – without any effort on your part. Set it and forget it!
Cleanliness – no soot build up on your walls or ceilings. No melting wax on your furniture or carpet.

Cost Savings – while a traditional wicked candle can burn out in hours or days, Enjoy Lighting flameless candles will last for years. The LED lamp will operate for up to 10 years or 100,000 hours and a set of batteries can provide at least 300 hours of battery life.* With just the minimal cost of replacing batteries, flameless candles offer a 75% annual savings when compared to purchasing traditional wicked candles.

*Battery life various depending on product and battery count.

Here are some more Features &  Benefits from Enjoy Lighting  :

• Wax candles have a classic fragrance to provide freshness and ambiance.

• 75% annual cost savings when compared to traditional wicked candles.

• Colors and textures to match any decor.

• Safe to use all around the home. No exposed flame or fire risks. No melted wax on carpet or furniture. No soot build up on walls or ceilings.

• LED bulbs will last over 100,000 hours!

• 3 LED's and a computer chip built into the candle produce multiple points of randomly shifting light, creating a glow that flickers, rolls, and casts dancing shadows, just like a real candle flame!

Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up Review & Giveaway


When I was asked to participate in the Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up, of course I jumped on it. With a New Year upon us, and trying to stick to New Years resolutions, this is the perfect opportunity to lose weight pretty quick, and easy too.

Most of us want to look our best, and heading into a New Year, I'm always looking for a new way to shed a few pounds , something that is easy, and something that doesn't require too many changes in my eating habits. So what does the Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up have to offer , that other diets don't?

The Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up diet does the following:

•Replace breakfast and lunch with a Yoplait® Light, a grain and a fruit

•Eat a sensible dinner rich in lean protein, and your favorite vegetables for snacks

•Choose 3 additional servings of non-fat dairy, like skim milk

•Stay active with 30-40 minutes of walking every day

Sounds pretty easy right? I have tried many other diets that require alot more changes than this, and I haven't had the best results. I found this plan to be easy, and I was eating food tat I liked. At the end of the two weeks, I did lose four pounds, which could have been more,but I snacked a few times on junk food. Shame on me!!!

I noticed with The Yoplait Light Two Week Tune Up  ,  that by not skipping breakfast as I normally do, and replacing it with a yogurt, and a fruit or grain, that I wasn't so hungry throughout the day, and I was tired as I normally am.
Head on over to the   Yoplait website for lots of other valuable information. While you are there you can check to see if you are getting the calcium that you need in your everyday diet here. You can also grab a free  cup of yogurt from Yoplait by clicking here.

The also carry numerous other products which are all so ever tasting to the palate.You can  purchase Yoplait Light products, at any grocery store, or convenient store world wide for about $.79 You can find some coupons by clicking here for some of your favorite yogurts.

Yoplait Light  through My Blog Spark provided me with this package, which included a gym bag, a pedometer, a reflective wrist wallet, and 28 coupons for Yoplait Light Yogurt, for me to eat during me Yoplait Light Two Week Plan.  Yoplait Light through My Blog Spark, has also given one of my readers a chance to win this package.

American Idol Season 8 Finalist Danny Gokey

I just had to share my picture and video of Danny Gokey. I went to see him perform last night  at The Mohegan Sun. What a show he put on. My favorites That he sang were "My Best Days Are Ahead Of Me" and "Living On A Prayer". He ended the show with Living On A Prayer, and let me tell you ,he tore it up. He sang his heart out just like he did on American Idol, but much better it seemed. I swear I was in heaven.

Check out Danny's website, and you can read all about him and what he does for his cause which is Sophia's Danny is one heck of an amazing man, and his wife Sophia, who he lost to a heart condition is living on through others, thanks to Danny.

I had the chance to meet him and talk to him last night, and I couldn't stop gushing about how friendly he was, not only to me, but to every one of his fans. I go see alot of concerts, and have seen some very big names, but haven't seen too many be as gracious and friendly as Danny was last night. When he talked about his wife Sophia, you could truly tell how great of a man he is. He had started Sophia's, so he could help kids, families, and just anyone that had suffered from poverty, being homeless, and those less fortunate, by  giving them a better chance at life. He also brought back musical arts to  some of the local schools so the kids had an opportunity to fulfill their dreams in life.

I personally think Danny is truly an inspirational and motivational man, who is determined to help others in life who are less fortunate. He just recenlty opened up a home that was donated to him in Nashville, to house homeless people. Danny would love it, and so would others if you could donate to his cause no matter how much you could give. You could help others too, just like Danny & his late wife Sophia. Go to, and click on the First Giving box to donate. No matter what the amount is, it will help for a great cause!! Danny thanks you, and so do I !

The Drama On The Bachelor Goes On With Womack !!!!

So another week goes by on The Bachelor, and emotions get stired up, and Brad is right in the middle of it all!!. He is the one who signed up for this show, so he has it coming to him. After his last time on The Bachelor, when he broke two girls hearts, I'm praying that this would not happen again, especially not to Emily or Chantal.

Emily seems lik she is not sure about things with Brad, and her not introducing Brad to her kid is a great idea. I, myself would never ever do that at this stage. I think that this show is helping Emily open up a bit, but I seriously do not want to see her hooked up with Brad. I think he is an all around Douche! Do you ever see how he tallks to some of the women when they are trying to express their feelings? He gets all defensive about it. That would be a huge RED flag to me !!

 This past week on The Bachelor was the best week yet, when Michelle Money was sent home. I think The Bachelor's ratings went up a bit while she was on the show. That chick was a pyscho !!! The way she talked about the other girls were scary. I wouldn't have wanted to sleep in the same room near her. I would have feared that she would have tried to hurt me or something. Bub Bye Michelle.. So glad your gone!!!

So, now that the pyscho went home, we are left with Ashley, Emily, Shawtel & Chantal. Who do you think Brad should pick? Should he pick the funeral director, or the broken hearted mother who lost her fiance not too long ago? I clearly don't see a chance with Ashley, as she has many insecurites, and Mr. Womack is very clear that he don't want to deal with that! He does get along quite well with Shawntel, and the do have some passion and fun, but my guess is that he will pick Chantal O.. She is right up his alley, and I think she would put him in his place if needed.

Something is telling me that he will pick someone, but it won't last more than a few months give or take. Remember the british Bachelor Matt, when he chose the crazy blonde , Shayne Lamas? I think they lasted a few months. Now he seemed  alot more sincere that this Douche on the show!! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I can't wait for some good shows to come on, as I'm sick of seeing him week after week. Now Emily on the other hand, she will probably be the next Bachelorette. Just wait and see..

P.S. I already know who Brad wil pick...Do you ??

Until next time,

Corioliss Pro Fix Pink Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron Review

I recently received a Corioliss Pro Fix Pink Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron 1 " for review from Flat Iron Experts. I have never owned a Flat Iron, so when I got a chance I jumped on it.My hair is natural curly, so it does take me some time to straighten it out, but the end product is always good. I love to have my hair straightened. I have included a before and after pictures so you can see how good this iron worked.

As you can see I have really long hair and I was blessed with natural curl, so owning a Flat Iron is a plus for me All I had to do was plug in in, and within minutes it was hot, and I mean hot. One thing that I would have liked was a temperature setting, but this didn't have one, and I caught myself a few times grabbing the end of it, and that was a big mistake let me tell you. I started at the top , grabbed a section of hair and , put it in between the plates, and dragged it to the end, and I would give it a curl at the end. I think I have found a new friend with the Corioliss Pro Fix Pink Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron / Hair Straightener (1") . Since I received it, I have been using it just about each day and let me tell you, I have been getting many compliments.


Looking pretty good right? It took me about 30 minutes or so to achieve this look. If you want your hair to look good, then you must spend time on it. I love my Corioliss Pro Fix Pink Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron / Hair Straightener (1") . Check out  the Flat Iron Expert website and look at all the products they have. From Flat Irons, to Hair Dryers to Hair Products, they have it all . You can order right frm their website, and your package will be delivered to your door. How neat is that??

Here are a few facts about the Corioliss Classic Pro Pink Ceramic Flat Iron / Hair Straightener (1") that I thought you should know:

•100% Ceramic plates for healthier hair and a high gloss shine

•Adjustable temperature from 140 to 410°F for easy use

•Fast Heats up in less than 6 seconds

•Straighten, flip or curl your hair

•The innovative PTC ceramic heater heats up in a flash, and stays at the temperature while styling

•Ionic heat leaves even damaged hair more sleek and color-protected

•Far Infrared (FIR) technology locks in moisture and natural oils

•Sleek, ergonomic, non-slip grip designed for professional comfort

•Professional 360° swivel cord to prevent tangling

•110V use with 110v in USA/Canada

•Made in Korea

•One year limited warranty

I would like to Thank Flat Iron Experts for giving me the chance to review such an awesome product. As I said earlier, I have found a new best friend called the   Corioliss Pro Fix Pink Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron / Hair Straightener .  I was not compensated monetarily for doing this review. I was given the Corioliss Pro Fix Pink Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron / Hair Straightener  in return for me providing my honest opinions. Thanks to Flat Iron Experts !!!

Skin MD Natural Review & Giveaway

TweetIt from HubSpot

Winter is here now, and during the winter months along with the snow comes dry skin. I found a great solution to my dry skin, and it's called Skin MD Natural . I was recently sent a bottle of Skin MD Natural  and  Skin MD SPF 15. I was pleasantly surprised when I put this on. Most moisturizers I try are some times greasy, and just don't feel right on my face. That is not the case with Skin MD Natural.

Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion, that works as a barrier on the top layer of your skin to protect it from outside chemicals and irritants. Before using Skin MD Natural, I had never heard of a shielding lotion before. A shielding lotion does the real work to prevent dry skin in two ways.

First, it assists the inner layers of skin to absorb moisture. The humectant (an ingredient that attracts moisture) used in Skin MD Natural is unique to it and has been laboratory tested to be 6 times more effective than any other you will find in common creams.

Second, a shielding lotion enhances the power of the top layer of the skin to resist environmental irritants while protecting the inner natural moisture.

This can be a big benefit for those who cook, wash dishes and garden because Skin MD Natural helps skin retain its natural moisture and oils in the face of all those irritating soaps and chemicals

  Skin MD Natural is made in the U.S. using solar power, and is not tested on animals. Skin MD Natural uses a blend of natural ingredients in combination with significant recent scientific advances to hydrate and help heal dry skin . It does not contain toxic ingredients or harsh fragrances that would irritate your skin.

If you spend time out in the sun, then Skin MD Natural SPF 15 is a must have. Not only does it moisturize your skin and protect it from harmful chemicals and irritants, it gives you the protection that you need. Check out the Skin MD website her to see the ingredients here. Skin MD Natural works different than the every day creams that are sold , as it locks in the moisture, keeping harmful irritants away, and it has a new ingredient that is 6 x more effective than glycerin. Now  does this make you want to rush out and buy a bottle? I know when I run out that I will definitely be buying more of this, as I put it on once in the morning, and at bedtime, and my skin feels terrific. It goes from a dry burning feeling, to feeling fine, and well moisturized. Skin MD Natural is formulated for the hands, body and face.

The manufacturer's website click here  has hundreds of dermatologist and user reviews including many addressing severe dry skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. People with sensitive skin , and those of us who like to live as naturally as possible  will appreciate that Skin MD Natural is hypoallergenic, free of fragrances, parabens and colorants. It is made with more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food-grade ingredients that are on the FDA's "most safe" list.

I recently had lumbar fusion surgery, and I don't have before pics, as I could barely move forget take a picture of myself, but each day I used my Skin MD Natural, once my staples came out, and I had well over 50 + of them, and I massaged it in each day, and I healed tremendously. My doctor was so impressed at how far I had come, and how well I healed. He reassured me of this each time I saw him post op.  I was asked if I would show a picture of before and after, and I decided to do so. I didn't have a before picture, so I went on Lumbar Fusion Surgery website, and copied a picture to show you somewhat the inside looks like below. I also have a cage, which can't be seen in this picture.


Here is the outside, after my staples came out. I don't look at it too often, as it's quite the site for sore eyes. I hope the picture don't freak you out. I didn't show you all of it if you know what I mean. I did this so maybe I could help people who were about to, or who have already had spinal surgery. Try Skin MD Natural , as it made  a huge difference with my healing.

Hard Candy Makeup Review


I recently received some makeup to review for Hard Candy, and I was so thrilled to do so.  I was sent  Kal-eye-descope - Baked Eyeshadow Duos -Make Believe. I was also sent  Take Me Out Liner-Glitter . I normally don't wear makeup, but I will tell you that the people at Hard Candy must have known me, because the colors they sent me went awesome with my tones and eye color. So let me show you below how fabulous this makeup looked on me!   
I will tell you that I did get alot of compliments by friends,
and I was told that these were my colors. I think they were right.
You tell me what you think ???

The colors were perfect that I received. I'm actually hooked on it. The eyeshadow was blue/gray, and went on easy with applicator, ane the liner was silver with glitter. If I'm going to take the time to put on makeup, then I need to do it right, and I love to sparkle!! I loved the colors so much, that I put on a blue vest I had to bring the color of my eyes out, and that it did.

Hard Candy carries eye shadows,  lip products, nail products,  face products, and Body Powders/Glitters too.  Hard Candy items can be purchased at your local Walmart, and online. So, what are you waiting for??  Head on over to, or to your local Walmart to pick up these hot items today. I know that I'm hooked for sure on Hard Candy Make Up now.

Thanks to the fine folks over at Hard Candy for giving me the opportunity to review such fine products of yours. I was not compensated monetarily for this review. I was provided the items in the picture above. These are my opinions and mine only.
