Ebook - The Rainy Day Man

So, I have been slowing down with the amount of books I am reading. I got a little click happy with being a product reviewer. All of these book review deadlines (yes it IS work and I have a deadline) have snuck up on me! I have been really slow at reading this book. I have only read a hand full of chapters.Recently it has been even harder to accomplish much, with the kiddos and I being sick! So, I apologize if my review on this is short. I spoil the ending of a book anyways... Sorry!

I always like to read up on a book before I read it. I know it sounds silly but, I did not want to take on a project and not be able to finish it because I absolutely disliked the book

I found this on Amazon

"Danny Simon, a retired Israeli secret agent, is returned to service and sent to Israeli-occupied South Lebanon. His simple mission - to collect data - is revealed as a conspiracy. The facts, the people and his surroundings are all infected with lies, and as the suspense builds, Simon finds himself trapped.
Is Danny in control - of his family life, of his lover, of his superiors? Can he trust any of them? Can he regain control of his mission and his life? At the end of a thrilling chase, Danny reveals the true nature of his mission, confronting his own, genuine identity."

This really caught my eye and made me want to read this book. So far, I can not put it down (okay yes I can, I have two kids and need both hands to change a diaper! haha). Like I said I am only a few chapters in and I really am enjoying this book. 

This book is so far a really good read and I highly recommend reading it!

E-Book : Mom's Journey: Practical Tips for Raising Kids & Giveaway

I am a mommy to two wonderful kiddos. Wyatt is 2 years old and Samantha is 5 months old. I may have a second child but I definitely am new to a LOT of things when it comes to being a parent.

I NEVER anticipating the amount of diapers I would go through. I NEVER anticipated how much my name "Mom" would be used! I NEVER anticipated how much WIIIIIIINEEEEEE I would get (too bad its "non-alcoholic" wine! haha)

I read a tip book for moms a while ago, but I felt like I wanted some more opinions to help me with being a mom.

I really apologize I wont be able to go into extreme detail about this book. I have a lot going on right now. My kids and I are sick, I will know if I made it into the college program I applied to tomorrow, I have a 5k run tomorrow, my future in laws come in town the second week of November, AND were house hunting!!

I am currently reading this book I really like how the book goes into detail about specific things a mom has to deal with. The book has chapters like Diapers, Eating Ruler, Love and Praise, Second Child,  and Whose the Boss.

Although I am not finished with this book I have already gained some very valuable pieces of information.

Leather Cleaner

My parents have this really nice red sofa. We have had it for SO many years, I even for get exactly how long its been around! It is one of those , "I can cat nap on this all day" sofas.

The poor sofa has been kind of abused though. My sister has a dog named Spud, who liked to run circles in my parents old house. He would use this sofa as a ramp or just plain old bounce off it. He also liked to sit on top of it like a cat would! Silly dog!

Even though my mom tried to keep a blanket or towel on the sofa to save it, Spud would usually bunch it up or knock it off. My parents had a product hanging around the house for leather maintenance. They kept saying they would use it on the sofa or their green leather chair, but never did. My dad had his own law firm. My sister and I constantly had things to do, friends, school projects etc. We were one busy family!

Now that I am 26 and no longer living at home and my sister is more independent, with a job and her own car; my parents have a little extra time on their hands.

I was SO happy to be given the opportunity to review this product! My mom's couch was in DESPERATE need of some TLC! I also was given the opportunity to review their Leather Conditioner & Restorer! (Which I will talk into detail about in a different review.)

I had this product shipped to my parents house. Once it arrived my mom immediately used this product. After using this product and the Conditioner & Restorer on her red leather sofa, she called to give me her in detail opinion on the products.

Each of the containers were individually wrapped with their own sponge.The instructions were extremely easy to follow. She could not believe how GOOD her sofa looked just with using the leather cleaner! She could not wait to see what the Conditioner & Restorer did!

This product is not only for sofas! It can be used on jackets, handbags, shoes, and even in your car!
Buy it for an amazingly low price here.
(wow i sound like an infomercial! haha!)

This product and the next product can also be used on leather seats in the car, on leather jackets and many more products!

Leather Conditioner & Restorer

Here is a continuation from my last review about the Leather Cleanser!

Once my mom followed the instructions on the cleanser and finished that. Next, she followed the simple instructions on the Cleanser and Restorer bottle.

Once she was done with the couch she immediately called me to let me know how much she LOVED these products.
Her couch looked amazing, better than it has looked in years!

I was super eager to see the couch after she used these products on it. I quickly got off the phone so she could text me a picture.

It looks AWESOME! I know you can not tell very well with an cell phone picture and of course the scratches and crease marks are not going to go away. BUT, the couch looks phenomenal!

You can buy the Conditioner & Restorer here.

As a surprise InstaNatural (yes they also make products like facial serums and hair masks, which i LOVE) also gave me their 3-in-1  
Cleaner, Restorer And Protector

My mom decided to use this on their over-sized leather chair. She said, as she expected from using the other two products, she absolutely loves this product too! It is great to use on items that just need a sprucing up to stay maintained.
I will be posting a photo of the chair later. My mom was going to send it to me, but forgot to before she had an eye procedure done.

Don't forget this product is not just for couches! It can also be used on leather jackets, on leather seats in your car, and many more products!

Faburo Back Brace for Posture Support and Back Pain

I apologize for the short review. I am sick and so are my kids.
Although, this product is good enough that it really does not require a lengthy review

I am not very proud to say this. Not only do I have poor posture, but I am pretty sure it has a play in the occasional back pain I have.
I know partly is because I had an epidural and a spinal block. At times, my back tweaks out in the areas the epidural and spinal block was done.

I did a little research before I got the back brace. I found this:

  • Supports Posture Health and Back Pain
  • Worn During Daily Activities (work, home, exercise)
  • Unisex
  • Fits Chest Sizes 26"-40"
  • Easily Worn and Washable 
    I really liked the fact it is washable!

I was very happy when I was given the opportunity to review this product. I was actually, constantly watching the tracking information. I knew exactly when it was going to arrive at my door step! haha! As soon as it arrived, I immediately tried it on.

It took me a few times to get adjusted just right. Once I was able to get it properly adjusted, with in the next 30 minutes I could tell a HUGE difference. I maintained better posture and my back did not bother me nearly as much.

I am very pleased with the outcome of wearing this back brace!

Dr Song Rosehip Oil

I absolutely LOVE anything I can use to pamper myself. I have two kiddos; my son is 2 years and my daughter is 5 months old. I do not usually get to go to a salon or a spa. My "spa day" is a nice long shower and getting to use my products at home. I love trying out different products, even if its the same product but made by different companies.

I do not have an even complexion. Having two kids, a dog bite incident, and growing older, my skin is not at all like it was when I was younger.

I really like this product for many reasons. First, it comes in a gigantic 4 oz bottle. 
I really liked how I only need to use a little bit. This is going to last me a LONG time! I have sensitive skin and this product did not irritate my skin.

I usually take evening showers. Every night after my shower I would do my "spa day" regiment. I would plan my regiment around how my skin was that day.  If it was dry, I would apply to my dry areas and my stretch mark areas. If my skin was not dry I would only apply it to my stretch mark areas and the scarring on my face.

I am very pleased with the results I have seen using this product.
This product is very easy to use and great for sensitive skin. My skin is noticeably softer after using this product.

My Konjac Sponge All Natural Fiber Baby Bath Sponge

A while ago I went on a konjac sponge kick. I tried out about 4-5 different types of konjac sponges!

In my review for the My Konjac Facial Sponge I mentioned I had kids. The company saw this and gave me the opportunity to try out their My Konjac Sponge for babies. I eagerly accepted their offer. I absolutely loved their facial sponge and could not wait to try their baby sponge.

I was really surprised when I got the sponge in the mail, its HUGE! I immediately used the sponge to bathe my kiddos that evening. I thought I had a picture of the sponge, but I think my 2 year old son or I accidentally deleted a few pictures on accident.

That evening when I bathed them, they were not dirty. It was just a relaxing bath before bed. Other than giving their hair a quick scrub, I did not see any point in cracking out the body wash. Especially when I had this amazing Konjac sponge!

I absolutely LOVE the sponge. It is so soft, I almost want steal it and use it for myself! haha! The sponge is great for sensitive skin and did an awesome job of cleaning my little ones.

Two thumbs up from this mommy!

Baltic Amber Teething Necklace

A while ago I had been seeing a lot of babies with these necklaces on. I thought to myself, why would you put a necklace on a baby so young? Until, I attended a breastfeeding event, I never had a chance to ask about this necklace. After I saw one baby wearing the necklace, I started seeing these things EVERYWHERE? Whats they hype over these necklaces, I thought.

Once I was able to really sit down and ask a mom about this necklace, I then understood, well sort of. At first I thought it as something baby could chew on. Once I realized that that was not the case I started to do some research of my own. I found this:

HOW IT WORKS: Baltic Amber is effective due to it's its high content of succinic acid. Succinic acid is a natural pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and central nervous system calmer. Wearing an amber teething necklace is effective on babies and small children because it eases their pain while also having a strong soothing effect on their nervous system - all with no side effects!

I thought wow, that is quite interesting. I could use this for my teething 2 year old Wyatt.

I was quite happy when Good Karma Zone gave me the opportunity to try their amber necklace out.


At first, I could not get him to quit playing with it. As you can see in the photo, his hands are up by the necklace and hes giving this look. I was trying to get his attention for the picture AND tell him not to mess with the necklace.

To be completely honest, he wore the necklace that day and that evening we took it off to give him a bath. After the bath he went to bed and we completely forgot to put it on again the next day. We actually forgot to put it back on him for quite some time.

Earlier this week I found the necklace while cleaning off my dresser, woops! I decided to put it back on him. Now he pretty much wears it 24/7, minus bath time. He no longer wants to tug at it, he most likely forgot its even there.

I have noticed a decrease in his fussy moments. Is it the necklace, I honestly do not know. Either way my little man looks adorable in it and has finally left it alone so it will remain on.

I definitely recommend trying this necklace out, it really seems to be working for my son!

AminoHD 1000 BCAA

I apologize for the short review, I have been sick and dealing with two sick kiddos.
Lately I have been getting really serious about being healthier and more active. I try to exercise daily. I say TRY because the last couple weeks due to me and the kiddos getting sick , getting better, only to get sick again! Not Fun! I have actually slacked with taking my vitamins (well anything other than my multivitamin).

Before I decided to try this product I did some research first. I found this information on Amazon:

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) are game changers. Not only are they integral to cell health and speedy recovery and growth; free-form BCAA also does NOT get stuck in the liver, but shoots straight through to your muscles. Of course, that is more than can be said for substances such as croscaramellose sodium, copovidone and magnesium stearate.

But why mention such garbage in the same breath as BCAA? Because most BCAA supplements are sold with exactly these noxious excipients (they’re really cheap to make). Not so with AminoHD 1000. AminoHD 1000 is manufactured from 100% BCAA and Vegetable Capsules. That’s it. So, with AminoHD 1000, all that takes off for your liver and muscles is pure BCAA.

What can you expect from taking pure BCAA, then? Preliminary studies indicate the following effects:

Leucine (1 of the 3 BCAA’s) caused a 145% boost of protein synthesis vs 41% boost with exercise alone. (Pubmed Article: PMC2706121)
4g per day of Leucine caused a 41% increase in 5-RM strength vs. 31% increase in a a placebo group. (Pubmed Article: 21487148)
BCAA Supplementation created a 17.2% greater resistance to fatigue over a placebo. (Pubmed Article: 21297567)

BCAAs are NOT a wonder drug. You won’t wake up tomorrow looking like an NFL linebacker. But supplementing properly just might give you that extra edge. Celebrity trainers already know the power of BCAA’s. Hugh Jackman (X-Men Wolverine) trained with 5-10g of BCAA’s Pre & Post Workout.

I figured this product would benefit me greatly, so I was very happy to be given the opportunity to try the product out.

I really liked the fact that this product has no fillers. All it is branch chain amino acids, nothing else! The bottle is GIGANTIC and has 450 pills, this will last me a LONG time! 
I took this as directed, between meals and after I worked out. As stated I did not wake up with a bunch of muscle. I could tell a difference since I have slacked taking them.

I highly recommend adding these branch chain amino acids to your work out regiment.

Airbac The Solution to a Heavy Backpack

School is an important thing in ones life. Depending of if you had to repeat a grade or not, it takes at LEAST 18 years to graduate High School. If you decide to go to college that is at LEAST another 2 years of school. As you go through school the books only get bigger and heavier. Carrying a backpack just gets more and more difficult.

Carrying such a heavy backpack is very bad for your back, especially when that person is a child. Usually you had one of two options, tough it out and wear the heavy backpack or have one of those "roll-ey" backpacks that EVERYONE hated.

During high school I was one of those kids with the rolling backpacks. I did not have to worry about damaging my back, but it did make getting down the hallways extremely difficult. Usually when someone was behind me walking down the hall, they would usually would end up kicking my backpack. No one liked the "roll-ey" backpacks, but at that time there was no other alternative.

Recently I came upon a company called Airbac. This company created a backpack with a patented air support system. This helps properly position the backpack above your waistline, so it takes the weight off your back and shoulders. Wearing this backpack you feel like you are wearing HALF the weight!


I was extremely happy when I was given the opportunity to review this backpack. I received the Groovy Day Pack Backpack and I absolutely LOVE it!

Front of the backpack

First impression I had about the backpack was how much I loved the pattern I chose. I really liked how most of the backpack is a dark fabric with the tie-dye in the front and splashes of color throughout the rest of it.

I hope to start college again in January to finish my degree. I will be in the Radiography program at the local community college.  I know when I start classes, I will have VERY heavy books. I can not wait to take my backpack to classes!

In the meantime I have been using the backpack to cart around my 7 year old laptop, which is VERY heavy. I can not believe the difference! Normally my poor back would be so sore from carrying around my laptop and any other supplies I decided to take with me.
With the combination of the patented air support system and the well padded areas of the backpack, it really did feel like I was only carrying half the weight!

Amazing padding on the straps!
Awesome padding for your back

I also really liked all the space this backpack has. It has a nice area inside for your laptop or tablet and lots of room for books. 

Large area for books and a nice pouch
 for your laptop or tablet
There is a front pouch where you can put small things like an agenda and some pencils and pens. There are also two pouches on each side for a water bottle.

Front zippered pouch

This backpack was well made with quality materials. I will definitely get many years of use out of it.

I wish I had this backpack back in High School! This would have made my day at school so much easier! I have a 2 year old son and a 5 month old daughter. I know exactly what backpack I will be getting them for school (once they start carrying all the heavy backpacks that is!). 
Not only is this the smartest idea I have ever seen, this backpack  is well made with quality materials, and REALLY WORKS! 

I highly recommend this backpack.

180 Cosmetics Breast Firming Solution

Ever since I was in High School I played with the idea of  getting a breast lift. At one point in my life I gained a lot of weight and actually wanted a breast reduction! After I had my son, I ultimately settled on the idea of a lift. It was ONLY an idea, because a procedure like that would not only be expensive but also PAINFUL! Next thing I knew, I was pregnant with my lil' princess. I definitely wont ever be able to afford anything like that! Now, I just think how silly I was to want a breast reduction or lift. I figured I COULD deal with the way I looked.

I was extremely happy when I was given the opportunity to test this product out.


I did some research on this product before 100% deciding on trying it out. I went to amazon and found this:

"This revolutionary breast cream is clinically proven to increase volume, firm, reconstruct, boost elasticity, and tone the skin. Bursting with natural oils, plant extracts, and vitamins, it also promotes hydration, stimulates cellular regeneration, and contains powerful antioxidants that protect your skin from free radicals and keep it toxin-free. At 180? Cosmetics, we believe in creating solutions that help maintain and restore your youth, beauty, and femininity, so you can feel confident all over, every day.All of our advanced formulas contain the highest-quality nourishing oils and natural extracts, and are never tested on animals.Directions: Apply twice daily, massaging over entire breasts in circular motions until fully absorbed. For optimal results, use for a minimum of 60 days.Formulated without:Formalin, Formaldehyde, Parabens, Phthalates, Petro-chemicals, GMO, Hormones, Triclosan, colors or dyes."

I started using this as soon as it came in the mail. I had just recently stopped breastfeeding (I had dried up :-[ ) and figured it would be the perfect time to test it out! It is really easy to use. Just take a dollop and massage in a circular motion on each side until your skin absorbs the product. 

I do this twice a day, In the morning when I wake up and right before I go to bed. 
The solution itself is a thick white cream-like gel. Personally the smell of it reminds me of Dial soap. A nice clean smell

I have not been using this product for long and I actually kind of slacked with using it. My kiddos have been off and on sick and I kind of put my daily routine on the back burner. So anything like my vitamins, beauty routine, anything other than trying to survive through the day with two sick kids was sort of forgotten. I know, I know, I should not do that. Since the kiddos and I are feeling better; I am starting back at my normal routine tomorrow.

When I was actively using the product, I could tell it was doing something. I can kind of compare it to when I was pregnant with my little ones. It was really close to the sensation of my breasts developing as I progressed through the pregnancy. I have not noticed any significant changes while I was using it. I am hoping once I start using this product again, I will see a big difference.

Even though I do not have significant results.
I can tell the product was working and it is a quality product.

Yalmeh Phytoceramides-Premium Quality Plant Based Supplement

Short Review Alert!
This product does not need an intricate and long review to explain how good it is!

Lately I have been on a healthy skin kick. I so far have tried many serums and creams. I have my daily regiment down pat... BUT I figured I would try something different.

When deciding if I wanted to test this product out I checked out the Amazon listing.
I found this:

Here's Why You Will LOVE Yalmeh Phytoceramides
Phytoceramides boost your skin's natural levels of moisture, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and increase your body's natural collagen production. Phytoceramides also help to improve the structural integrity of the skin. They have been used in Japan for centuries, and the FDA has recently approved the use of phytoceramide oral supplements.
As you age, your skin beings to appear rough and wrinkled as a result of the loss of ceramides. Phytoceramides are the plant-derived equivalent of ceramides. They help restore the outer layer of the skin. The phytoceramide molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream and are then transported to the inner layer of the skin. In time they travel to the out most layer where they restore the cracked and damaged barrier and moisturize and smooth out wrinkles and sun-damaged areas.
Our Phytoceramides are made from Japanese Konjac Root and are Gluten Free
- Premium Quality Plant Increase skin hydration as well as Improve your skin's firmness and elasticity
- Help reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Protect skin from further signs of aging

Although I really like all of the topical products I have used so far... I was very pleased with the results that I saw using this product. I tried it by itself AND along with some of my topical products.
Even though it worked well by itself, I really liked the results I saw with combining this supplement and my topical products.

Trim Nutrition POWERCELL & Giveaway

Power Cell

I have to say, I have become a fan of Trim Nutrition's products! This is the third product I have tried so far. Each of their products I try , I end up telling EVERYONE about.

Lately I have slacked with taking my vitamins ( I have quite a few I take). My kiddos recently got sick and I have fallen behind in my blogging. I have obligations and deadlines I have to meet, I REFUSE to miss a deadline! Even if it means I am up till midnight or later!

I should have been taking my Power Cell all along. Maybe I would not be getting sick again if I had not slacked!

On Trim Nutrition's website it says this:
"Trim Power Cell is a doctor-formulated anti-aging supplement aimed to reduce wrinkles, strengthen nails, and to improve the look and feel of your hair. This supplement is filled with rich anti-oxidants to help fight off infections and viruses."

When I was taking this product, I took it along with the Trim Energy with Appetite Control. I also drank a Trim Fuel Protein Shake every morning. YES, I slacked with all of that! Now that I am not as swamped ,I will be starting again tomorrow. I felt all these products worked really well together.

Power Cell alone I could tell really did help strengthen my nails. I have been biting my nails since I was about 10 years old. The reason being a combination of a way to cope with stress and me irritated at my nails being so flimsy when I do grow them out. I could even tell the anti-oxidants worked well. I had not gotten sick for a while, then I slacked off with everything and got sick!

I highly recommend this product along with any other product by Trim Nutrition.
They not only have great quality products, but they also REALLY WORK!

Thirty Scary Tales (ebook)

Halloween is right around the corner. Haunted houses, scary decorations , and talk of costumes fill social media. I personally am in the process of figuring out costumes for my two kiddos! Looks like my 2 year old son will be a sailor and my 4 month old daughter will be a ... hmm... I am not sure what to call it. She will be all dolled up. Pink dress and stockings and an adorable pink bow!

Anyways! In the spirit of Halloween I decided to read some scaaaaaary stories!

I really like this book because it has 30 stories! That is one story for each day of October up until Halloween! I would have read the stories this way, but my babies and I got sick. We were JUST getting over from being sick and we are feeling under the weather AGAIN! Not fun!

I am currently slowly reading through these Thirty Scary Tales, These stories are really good! With titles like The Devil You Know, Night Train, and Disturbed Sleep this book is a great read for the month of Halloween!

Since I think this book is such a good read, I have decided not to spoil ANYTHING. Not even one sentence, Sorry!!

E-Book: I Wish I Were a LION

Lately I have been stocking up children's books. Right now my son Wyatt is only 2. We usually read him a book before he goes to bed each evening. I figure these books will come in handy, sooner or later he will be learning to read.

I really liked this book. It was packed full of cute pictures of lions. Under each photo there was a reason why they want to be a lion. For example, most often lioness does all the hunting and they hunt large mammals like zebras, antelope, gazelles and buffalo. Each adult lion needs 10-15 pounds of meat every day.
I knew a few things about lions but , this book had quite a few things I did not know. For example,  Lions can stay four days without drinking. Lions do hunting most often at night until dawn.

I read this to my son one evening. Each time I turned the page, he pointed and said his version of "kitty".
We really enjoyed reading this book together. When we were finished with the book he insisted on reading it again. My son enjoyed the book so much that, my fiance' also read it to Wyatt another evening.

Smart Weigh 500 x 0.01g Digital Pro Pocket Scale

I am a stay at home mom. I have two kiddos, Samantha (4 months) and Wyatt (2 years). Recently a close friend of mine told me about her Ebay account. She goes to garage sales and buys items specifically "like new in box" and turns around and sells it on ebay. It would be an easy way for me to help the family out by earning a little extra cash. I recently came upon some playing cards, yu-gi-oh and pokemon.

I thought it was perfect when I was given the opporunity to test this Smart Weigh Digital Pro Pocket Scale.
I could weigh my mail and make sure I have enough postage and use it to weigh smaller items to sell on ebay, like the pokemon cards.

Here are some details on the scale
  • Features - the top500 is strong, accurate, fast, and user-friendly; will work great for any of your mailing, jewelry, reloading, and cooking needs
  • Functions - this scale can double up as a postal scale; the pcs function gives you an accurate count and the hold function will lock weight readings
  • Design - features a clear LCD screen lit by a bright blue backlight; will display readings in g, OZ, OZT, dwt, GN, and CT
  • Precision - manufactured with high precision sensors to provide the most accurate weight readings; weighs up to 500 grams in 0.01 Increments
  • Includes - 2 AAA batteries with a two minute auto shut off feature; the tare function will provide a net weight
I really like the sleek design of the scale. Its not made of a shiny material, so you do not have to worry about finger smudges when you use the scale. The scale is extremely accurate and easy to use. It is also nice that it comes with a hard plastic case.

Ebook - No, No, No, No, No, Yes. Insights From a Creative Journey

Throughout my life I have become very familiar with the word NO, especially when it came to food. My mom was a BIG health nut when I was a kid. I always got string cheese, carrot sticks and crackers as snacks for lunch. In the grocery store, I would try to pick stuff out for school lunch. Mom can I have Gushers? No Can I have fruit snacks? No Can I have Fruit Roll up? No Can I pleeeeeeease have fun sticks???? NO!!!! Always no! NO running, NO yelling, NO talking back. NO, NO, NO , NO!!!

At first I thought No was just a word parents loved to use. As I grew up I realized NO was a popular word EVERYWHERE.  I did not let the word NO defeat me though! I just kept going and figuring out ways to accomplish things with out NO getting in my way.

Normally I have been pretty good at being strong and not letting the word no get in the way. Lately I have not had much luck with anything. Not that the word no was literally said but a lot of things just had not been in my favor. I really want to go back to school and I had applied to the program I wanted to major in. I was overly happy that I was approved! The only downside? I found out 3 months before that I was pregnant! So going to school was a big fat NO! This continued to, I wont be able to go to school anyways because daycare costs an arm and a leg! Another NO!

I really learned a bunch when I read this book. No is not the end, no is just a stepping stone in life. Something that you can OVERCOME! All you have to do is step back, re-think things and go at it again! Granted you might get another NO. If you continue to overcome the no's thrown at you, one day you might get a YES!

I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend this book.
