Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownie Review and GIVEAWAY! Ends 07/15



It couldn't be a more perfect time for me to run into Fiber One Brownies!  I am, in great earnest, trying to get healthy, but I am finding it so difficult to stay on course with my eating when I eliminate the things I LOVE.  However, with Fiber One Brownies.. being only 90 calories.. I can live again!

90 Calorie snack...  I cannot even explain how awesome this is..to fit in my 1500 calorie a day diet.  The really cool part is.. the brownies actually taste good and they have 5 grams of FIBER.  I personally can tell a little that it is not a "normal" brownie.  Probably a little thick tasting.  But it doesn't rob the chocolate from the brownie..and when you are trying to watch what you eat.. chocolate is chocolate lol.   I also love the peanut butter and chocolate Fiber One Brownies!  Oh my word.  Awesome!

Fiber One and General Mills in conjunction with MyBlogSpark was so awesome to send me 2 boxes of Fiber One Brownies to try, along with some great items.  A gym bag, sporting the Fiber One logo, a head band, jump rope, cute cooler snack dish, bracelet, and an awesome red metal thermos!

Would you love to add Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies to your diet?

One of my readers will receive the same gift pack that I received!!!

Repechage Review!

Living in the hot desert of the southwest, it is a constant battle to keep my skin moisturized properly.  Trying to find the best products that do not rob my skin.  Repechage is quickly becoming a favorite skin line of mine, and so far the products that I have tested out, have been superb!  Check out the Hydra Refine 1 Minute Mask by Repechage review I did last month!

In the last two weeks, I have been able to test out the Hydra Medic Sea Mud Perfecting Mask and the Repechage Hydra Medic Beta Hydroxy Serum.  I am so excited to tell you about these two Repechage products.

First, the Hydra Sea Mud Perfecting Mask is heavenly!  Make sure your face is clean, before applying the mask.  This may sound strange, but I loved loved the smell of this mud mask.  It's a light smell of clay and citrus.  For some reason, it reminds me of my childhood.  One of the things I noticed right away with the mask was how silky it felt on my skin.  I left the mask on a little longer then they recommend, only because it's so hot out here that I was sweating lol  So I think it took almost 20 minutes for the mask to completely dry.

With warm water and a soft cloth, the mask came off easily.  And my skin.. WOW.  Was sooooo soft!  And most importantly, was not dry, as I feared.  The Hydra Medic Sea Mud Perfecting Mask has some amazing ingredients, which I am sure contributes to the magic of reducing the oiliness, the deep pore cleansing, and maintaining the skins moisture.  This is probably one of the best face mask I have used to date! Normally, the mud mask goes for $29, but right now they are having an online special for $23.98!

For the Hydra Medic Beta Hydroxy Serum, I recruited my sister to put Repechage to the test!  I know she is a little embarrassed, but she tends to have more issues with stress breakouts on her face.  So I thought she might be the perfect candidate for the serum.

Normally $39.50.  Online Special $31.98

The Hydroxy Serum works on stopping the breakouts before they even start.  Sounds like a product with a brain!  With the ingredients, the serum works on reducing the oil from the sebaceous glands, while not drying your skin out.  Unclogs the pores, and you can thank the Anti-inflammatory Tea Complex ingredient for your soft, less irritated skin.

My sister applied the serum, which she said was almost like water, to her skin before going to bed.  And noticed a significant improvement in the morning.  She has continued to use the serum for a week now, and said that her skin seems to be improving every day, without any "new" breakouts.  For her this is amazing!  She is getting married in 5 months and you can imagine has been concerned about her face being void of breakouts.  Thankfully, my sister (reluctantly), took before and after pictures for me.

I think it's an amazing difference, just in 12 hours!!!

Repechage specializes in using only the best ingredients in the most natural way for our skin.  I am so happy to continue to recommend Repechage products!  Don't forget to connect with Repechage on Facebook and Twitter!


***I received the two products from Repechage mentioned above in exchange for a review.  This post is purely based on my opinion.

Green Tea +Weight Loss Review and Giveaway! You'll want to read this one!


I have been struggling with my weight for a number of years, and after two pregnancies I gained even more weight.  This blog was originally created to help me journal my weight loss journey, and I actually lost weight during that first year.  But like most I gained it back plus some.

A couple of weeks ago, Delta Labs asked me to review a natural weight loss supplement that they had created, Green Tea Plus.  So of course I jumped at the chance.  After trying everything known to man.. I am more than willing to try a naturally safe weight loss aid.

What Green Tea Plus Can Do..

"Green Tea Plus" is the only complete, natural weight loss formula clinically proven to boost your metabolism without artificial stimulants. 


My first week.. I really didn't change a thing with my diet or exercise.  But the first 24 hours of taking the capsules I noticed a fullness.  My cravings weren't as crazy.  However, I did not lose any weight.  I wasn't really in to it completely.  So after watching a couple of weight loss shows on TV..and gleaning some new hints and understand of nutrition, I decided to give the Green Tea plus weight loss supplement another chance.

I started last Saturday, changing my diet.  Minimal exercise.  And taking 2 capsules once a day with a meal.  I didn't really expect much results.  But I was hopeful.

What are my results in the first 7 days? 

10 LBS  lost.  


I know I cannot believe it.  Even this morning when I weighed.  I was down my tenth pound...I honestly wanted to cry.  Is this a magic diet?  No..  You have to change your life, but what I LOVE about the Green Tea plus is that it helps curb those cravings and create a fullness.  So often I return to the pantry or the frig..starring looking for something.  And usually I find something to eat.  Am I really hungry?  No.  But I want it so I eat it.  Hence the calories and the weight gain.

Adding the Green Tea Plus to your diet is a slight adjustment.  You have to make sure you do eat enough calories.  Because for me, the Green Tea Plus adds such a fullness and aversion to foods I would normally wolf down, I am very conscious to eat around 1,500 calories a day.


Everyone will have different results.  I can't tell you how many pounds you will lose.  However, in a way its science with a dose of common sense.  If the Green Tea Plus helps curb your appetite therefore causing you to not gorge on thousands of calories a day, then naturally your body will start to let go of the fat.

My goal for this month was 20 lb loss, and now I only have 10 more to hit that goal!  What an awesome product, and one that I would recommend.

After burning the phone lines to my family, I have 3 sisters convinced to start the product and my Mother. :)

Of course, it is always best to check with your doctor when trying anything new.  Specially if you have any type of physical issues or limitations.

Green Tea Plus is worth doing your homework on.

Scott's Liquid Gold Review!!!




No one really likes to clean..do they?  I will be the first to admit it. Cleaning.. reminds me of the days growing up when every Saturday was clean day.  I am talking Spring Cleaning kind of clean day.  Now as a Wife and Mother, I really try to find ways to make the process easier or more fun.

The only, I repeat, only thing that makes a difference
in how I view a cleaning task..is the tools I have on hand.  If the products I have are awesome and I can see results immediately.  I am more inclined to scream crack a smile.. while cleaning.

So, I have a cleaning product to discuss with you.  Yes, I do have a purpose for blogging about cleaning.  Let me introduce, Scott's Liquid Gold!  ***Ta Da***  Scott's Liquid Gold was so generous in allowing me to try a couple of their products out.

Here is a little insert of what Scott's Liquid Gold has to say about their company:

Scott's Liquid Gold, one of America's well-known and trusted brands, is proud to be celebrating our 60th Anniversary!

In 1951, our President's grandmother bought the Scott's Liquid Gold formula and his dad began batching and bottling the product in the family garage.  He then packed up the product and sold it from the back of station wagon.

The success of Scott's Liquid Gold is based on the best, most innovative, high quality and reasonably priced products as well as our extreme dedication to innovation and customer service.

We've come a long way from our garage and station wagon days. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, located in Denver, Colorado, leads the industry! But, while we embrace the latest in technology, communications and media, we still hold true to our roots and promise you the same great products and service for the next 60 years and MORE...


I was so happy to be able to try out the Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner & Preservative Aerosol product. Just spray a little on a clean rag and wipe away the dust on any wood surface.  I went a little crazy.  Once I saw how it not only made my buffet shine, but it actually cleans the wood.  So I attacked the shelves, the kitchen cabinets, dining tables, and anything else I could find.  So... yes, I have to tell you after dusting with Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner.. dusting is officially fun.

This is my kitchen buffet table.  If you look closely you can see clearly the side that was used with Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative!  Can you believe how beautiful that looks?  I am still impressed!



Makes you feel like you are the one mopping doesn't it? lol
Some hot water with a bit of Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Wash
Concentrate did the trick on my floors.
Check out my floors after I used the Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Wash!  I received the 25 fl. oz. concentrated.  This  wood wash is particularly for floors.  I love that not only does it work for wood floors, but also  on simulated wood, painted surfaces, linoleum, tile, porcelain, vinyl, chrome, brass, and fiberglass!  I will tell you, as you probably can see from my "dirty" pictures below, how well it cleaned my floor.


Proof that the Wood Wash Concentrate pulls stuff
up from your floors you had no idea was there!
Really??? My floors  could not be that dirty!!!  Now that is just gross!!!!

Here is my floor after the mopping!  I was indeed smiling.. at how pretty it looked..and how wonderful it felt to walk on.


I have nothing absolutely nothing negative to say about my experience with Scott's Liquid Gold products!!!  Just remember this is purely my opinion...so don't get upset at me when it cleans your furniture or floors even better than mine. :) 

Scott's Liquid Gold has so much more than just the products I used.  They have Wood Wipes, Clean Screen, Mold Control, and Specialty Fragrances.  Scott's Liquid Gold would be so happy to have you a part of their Facebook and Twitter family!

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
