NCE Global Newcell Health Supplement Giveaway / Review $70 Value!

Welcome NCE global to the American marketplace.   I am certain you will be a huge success over here in the States as you are in the Chinese market.

I love how easy  your website is to navigate.  It is so clean with large tabs that take you to what health supplement you are looking for.  I was very interested in sampling and reviewing you Newcell line of products.  I was curious to see how this Newcell line could help the aging process, that sneaks up on all of us (Even thought we don't want to admit it.)  So when I was given this opportunity, I jumped for joy, especially since one lucky person is going to win the same two Newcell products that I will be reviewing below!


My first question what does Newcell Amado do?  I learned from NCE Global's website Newcell Amado is a revolutionary dietary supplement.  Each capsule contains an exclusive blend of L-Arginine and L-Citrulline and other ingredients which trigger the production of Nitric Oxide.

So then I wondered why Nitric Oxide could be so important?  I found out as we age, the naturally occurring Nitric Oxide which keeps your blood vessels young and flexible declines.  What a scary thought, as I know the possibility of a blocked artery increased with age and in turn can cause a heart attack or stoke.  But, scientists have discovered that Nitric Oxide dilates or expands arteries and regulates cell function throughout the body.

After realizing why Nitric Oxide is so important I began taking the recommended dose of 2 capsules twice I day.  I am in the routine of taking one dose with breakfast and one with supper.  So far I love that there is no aftertaste and the capsules (a little on the larger size) slide down easily.

This Newcell is in liquid form and is easily dropped in water and enjoyed 3 times a day.  Newcell is all natural trace mineral complex harvested from a pristine ocean.   When I read the description of what Newcell is and does, it was a little challenging.  But I was able to decifer the elements of Newcell act as antioxidants in the body and serve to aid in the elimination of free radicals. Newcell also supports a healthy circulatory system.  Newcell also serves as an important source of amino acids, multi-minerals and enzymes.

The reason the trace minerals included in every drop of Newcell are important is naturally-occurring foods rich in nutrients are becoming a thing of the past.  So by using Newcell you can help support and rebalance your body.

I was surprised to see 7-15 drops are recommended to add to water three times a day to get the full benefits from Newcell.  Of course I had to try a drop plain before adding it to water.  Wow...what a punch of reminded me of citric acid, but once diluted in water it added a nice citrus taste without adding any color. 

My body is already thanking me and in turn I am thanking NCE Global and Welcoming them to the USA market.  So who wants to win these 2 Newcell products that I sampled? 

If I hear you saying yes, you can get a head start and visit NCE Global's Facebook page and like them.

Good Luck and Happy Health!

Win 2 Cases of Omega3Water! Fruity and Healthy Giveaway and Review. $73 Value! Vegetarian Friendly

Are you getting your daily dose of Omega3?
Did you know.....Omega-3 is one of the core nutrients to a healthy lifestyle?
Well, it is and I know the many excuses that can be made for not getting your Omega3.  And the first and top excuse is the fishy taste and the haunting aftertaste.  But, let me say from personal experience....

Drink and Enjoy your Omega3 in a fruity, refreshing new way.  Yes, I said drink!

Who would have thought to somehow combine Omega3 and many other vitamins into a fruity and refreshing beverage?  Omega3Water did and I am thankful!

Are you a vegetarian?  No worries...Omega3Water is sourced from fax seeds so it is vegetarian friendly.

Plus, it has been chosen as one of the “Top 12 Best New Products” in the exclusive Bevnet LIVE New Beverage Showdown.  And I totally understand why!

My favorite of the two flavors currently offered has to be the Natural Orange Kiwi.  It is so light and refreshing.  It has a nice clean fruit flavor with no oily reside or fishy taste.  What a great way to stay hydrated on hot day and still get your Omega3 and Vitamins A, B3, B5, B6, B12 and Vitamin C.

Each bottle of Omega3Water contains 20oz which is actually 2.5 servings.  But the nice thing is there is only 112 calories per bottle.

The other flavor of  Omega3Water is Bold Berry.  I did enjoy this flavor profile.  It reminds me of a sports drink.  It is full of flavor, hence the name "Bold Berry".  The biggest tip I need to share about Omega3Water is make sure it is nice and cold, otherwise the flavor seems altered and doesn't taste as refreshing.

 Did you know, "Current research demonstrates that adding omega-3 nutrients to your diet
can help reduce the risk of heart disease, slow down the aging process, ease stress and depression, improve memory function, and lower cholesterol and high blood pressure. Studies have also indicated that omega-3s may help in the prevention, risk and treatment of certain forms of cancer[1-6]. For
a complete list of the powers of this little nutrient, check out [7-9]."

So who wants to pledge to take better care of their bodies?  Who wants to try Omega3Water?

Who wants to win a case of each flavor of Omega3Water, like I was provided?  A $73 Value which includes Shipping and Handling!  Well, enter below for your chance and good luck!

Aurorae Northern Lights Yoga Mat ... You won't be disappointed... It is the best!

Illuminate Your Life

As my weight loss journey continues, so does my quest for physical fitness.  I have been expanding my horizons and trying new ways to work out and get physically fit.  One of my current workouts involves quite a bit of floor time.  It was really challenging to tolerate being on the floor.  So, I purchased a very cheap (it was on clearance) yoga mat to help while working out on the floor.  I have to tell you it stinks like rubber!  It is not the least bit soft and really didn't help with anything. 

So when I had the chance to review of of the yoga mat from a family business called Aurorae I was more than willing.  They sent me out the most beautiful and useful yoga mat out on the market today (you can even purchase them from

It is perfectly called:

Look at this beautiful yoga mat!  Did you know no two Northern Lights yoga mats are the same, just like nature's beauty.  I knew this had to be a good mat by how heavy the mat itself is made with high quality eco-safe materials and meant to last.

Aurorae offers yoga mats in illuminating colors with a focal point icon, cushiony support and long in length. Aurorae offers the best reviewed yoga mats, accessories and; props online. You can browse their yoga mats, yoga bags, yoga accessories and yoga props on their website,

I still can't get over how comfortable this yoga mat from Aurorae is and the difference it has made it my workouts.  It is so soft and cushy.  Don't worry about it staying in place, as mine has never slipped out of position.  Plus the mat is extra long for great reach and coverage during your workout.  And did I doesn't smell!!
Had to share the above photo...look close you can see imprints of my shoes...that is how squishy this comfortable mat is...don't worry the mat springs right back into place. 
Aurorae takes such pride in the products they create, even including a great booklet sharing information about their line of products and cleaning tips for their yoga mats. 
Thank you Aurorae for creating such a high quality yoga mat!

New Simply 7 Snacks Flavors and Pomegranate Chips Review

I few months ago I had the privilege and pleasure to review and giveaway some amazing and good for you snacks created by Simply 7.  I was excited to be recontacted by Simply 7 requesting that I review their new lines of Pomegranate Chips and new flavors of Hummus and Lentil Chips.

So what do you think I said? 

Yes, of course...we love Simply 7 at our home!

Just in case you missed my other review, here is a little refresher on what Simply 7 is all about.  Simply 7 uses Simple Ingredients and creates Simply Delicious Snacks.

All of the many wholesome snacks are made according to 7 core standards...hence the name Simply 7!
1.  0 Grams Trans Fat
2.  No artificial Colors or Flavors
3.  No Preservatives
 4.  Gluten Free Ingredients
5.  All Natural Recipes
6.  Simple Ingredients
7. Simply Delicious

I am going to start with the Hot and Spicy first.  The Jalapeno Lentil chips lit my mouth a blaze with flavor and heat.  The tame, pretty, very light colored crisp chips (Looks can and are deceiving!) totally captured the natural spicy heat from Jalapeno Peppers which go very well with the Lentils.  These are not for the faint of heart.

The New flavor ... Roasted Red Pepper Simply 7 Hummus Chips are works of art.  I love the fun shape of these tasty healthy treats.  They are a little sweet and full of garlic and onion flavor.   

The Simply 7 Pomegranate Chips were a new experience for us.  I must say they are a exquisite pink color.  I love know that the color is 100% natural with no artificial colors or flavors added.

I sampled each of the 3 flavors of Pomegranate Chips offered including:
Sea Salt, White Cheddar (pictured above) and Black Pepper.
I am still amazing after sampling all the flavors how the natural sweetness and slight fruitiness shines through with each satisfying crunchy bite. 
The Sea Salt Pomegranate reminds me of Big Kid Kettle Corn.  The sweetness of the pomegranate came across my taste buds first that followed with a nice suttle saltiness.
The White Cheddar actually worked with the flavor profile.  As the white cheddar is naturally salty and goes excellent with the fruitful flavor of the pomegranate.
The Black Pepper Pomegranate brought memories of enjoying a garden fresh tomato with fresh cracked black pepper on it.  The beautiful fruit is enhanced by the light sprinkle of black pepper and a dusting of salt.
Don't miss out and get yourself and your family some Simply 7 today!

ActivewearUSA carries an amazing selection of fitness apparel. I love my Workout Tank Top!

I can't believe I am currently on an 61 day stretch of not missing a single work out.  And I am pleased to report after so many days of physical fitness and eating healthy, I have been losing a large amount of weight.

It is great see the pounds drop off and my clothing sizes shrink.  I have been enjoying getting to wear many new outfits and fitting back into things I haven't been able to in years.

I noticed even though I am fitting into smaller clothing items, my workout apparel hadn't changed much.  I continued to wear tops that were too large and not supportive.

The more I thought about that, the more upset I became with myself.  I have worked out hard and for many hours to get where I am at today!  I deserved some great looking, fitting and supportive workout apparel to show off the new me!

So my quest began and I found an amazing company's facebook page, ActivewearUSA.  Go check them out and "Like" them, you will not be disappointed.

Their facebook page lead me to their website ActivewearUSA. 

I can't believe how many useful, fun, creative, functional and fashion oriented active and fitness wear that is offered on the market today, especially through Activewear USA!

Activewear USA takes to time even to categorize their offerings into what activity/sport you plan on wearing the active item for, in order to get the proper fit and support.  What a great idea. 

They offer FREE shipping on order over $75 (domestic US) and Free returns (US Only).

I was so excited to find out ActivewearUSA was going to send me one piece of activewear from their extensive line of products they carry.  I couldn't wait to see what they would send.

In order for a great piece to be selected for me, I had to answer a few questions.  Including my size, what sport I typically do and my style (crazy, floral, conservative or black).  Now that my body is getting back on track, I love crazy, stand out styles.   So what would they select for my review?  I knew it was going to be a top.  Speaking of tops, ActivewearUSA is always updating their apparel so keep an eye out to see what new things they have to offer on great items like workout tanks.

They sent me an amazing Sabin Racer Top from Prana. It has a sporty racerback styling and internal shelf bra which offers a supportive fit without crushing or binding.  The shirred detailing on the area around the bust was a great feature that is meant to flatter your bust-line.

I loved the wild pattern and it is great that it doesn't show my sweat plus it drys very quickly.  This top is a little on the longer side which I love as it fits snug to my body and stays in place while I am workout out doing aerobics and cardio weight lifting.

I have been wearing my top for a few weeks now, and it is holding up perfectly.  It is still retaining its shape and look after multiple times of use.  I highly recommend this top specially and can't wait to try at least another one or two more when I drop down to a size medium. 

***Warning before looking below****  I have a terrible "farmer's tan" and it shows in the photo below!  Okay?  Are you prepared?

So now that I have shared my lovely photo, I need to get serious again.  I enjoy feeling great about myself and finding a company who carries products to help bring fitness to a whole other level.

Thank you ActivewearUSA for for making online fitness shopping easy and fun.  You guys rock!

Who knew it could be so easy, quick and affordable to change your own photo into a Canvas Print to enjoy on your wall?

Well I know it is possible, thanks to Easy Canvas Prints. 

Easy Canvas Prints is an online customized service that allows you to use a photo you have taken and create a professional canvas print that you will be able to enjoy inside for many years to come.  Each canvas print is created with archival quality and has a specifically designed coating for superior color gamut and resolution.   

I had such a challenge figuring out what photo to use when I had the chance to create my own canvas print thanks to Easy Canvas Prints. I finally decided on a scenery photo I took last year on a vacation to Colorado; as it will look perfect in our bedroom.

Easy Canvas Prints makes it very easy for you to know if the photo you select will make a good canvas print.  As when you import it into the order, it will tell you if the photo is good.  Good means the online design tool which is viewing your photo has a sophisticated image resolution detector and will know if the photo will work.

So once you select your photo and know it will work, you have to decide what type of wrap you want on your canvas print.  I selected the ".75 Standard wrap and later in the process decided to have the boarder, which was the ".75 Standard wrap be the "image wrap".  That means the my photo image continued on and wrapped around the boarder.

You can also chose mirror wrapped or a solid colored boarder.

Guess what?  Your choices do not end there!  You can decide if you want your image in color, black and white or sepia.

Easy Canvas Prints even offers minor retouching for free!  I forgot to mention you can select if you want your canvas print to have the standard hanger like I chose....

Week 8 Nutrisystem - Fell off the Wagon during a week away #NSNation

Okay...I have offically fallen off the Nutrisystem wagon, but I am bucking up this week and getting back on track now that I am back at home.

My week long trip away from home lead to some food indulgences and guilty pleasures like Chocolate cake.
Any many other food choices I knew I shouldn't make.  My issue was.... I never get to leave the state I live in and this was a huge deal and very exciting.  I never missed a workout while that streak remains!  And I even worked our more, helping to balance out my poor food choices, but as you will see that didn't help!

So at the end of week 8 I have lost a total of 15.75 inches!!! (That is another 3.5" gone this past month...bye bye!)

Waist - Total lost 3.5"
Chest - Total lost 4"
Hips - Total lost 3"
Thighs - Total lost 3.5"
Upper Arms - Total lost 1.75"

So, I gained  1.8  pound this week! 

Week 1 - lost 3.5 pounds
Week 2 - lost 3.5 pounds
Week 3 - lost 2.8 pounds
Week 4 - lost 1.6 pounds
Week 5 - lost 5.8 pounds
Week 6 - lost 3.5 pounds

Week 7 - lost 1.8 pounds
Week 8 - gained 1.8 pounds

Total Weight Loss So Far after 8 weeks on Nutrisystem 20.8 pounds.

Sucess with Shielo Volumizing Shampoo Review

My hair is so fine and lifeless most of the time.  I have tried a lot of hair products, hoping they will be the answer.  Sadly many are not. 
I am happy to report I had the chance to try out a great Volumizing Shampoo by Shielo.  It is a modern shampoo that is designed to remove residue that can weight your hair down.  This reside can come from product styling buildup.  

Shielo's Volumizing Shampoo may remove residue, but don't worry as it doesn't strip your hair or fade your color if you have treated hair.  It actually fights free radicals which can weaken and damage your delicate hair.

So after using Shielo Volumizing Shampoo for a week and a half I can see and feel the results.  My hair feels fuller, thicker and healthier.

Way to go Shielo on another successful product!

Victorian Wax Seal Initial (Customized) Sterling Silver Necklace and Freshwater Pearl Giveaway / Review $80 Value!


As soon as I received my amazing handcrafted Victorian Wax Seal Initial Necklace my mind
filled with many different emotions and thoughts. Now I just have to find away to share my LOVE
of this unique and well designed USA made piece of jewelry.

Here are my first thoughts when I looked at my Lauren Nicole Gifts custom made necklace.

Perfection, Elegance, Beauty, Exquisite, Quality, Heirloom and Personalized.

These words cannot even begin to capture the magical love and passion that is put into each and every piece of custom hand stamped and Wax Seal Sterling Silver Jewelery.  If you have never heard of Wax Seal before, here is a little description to help you understand the time and effort that Lauren Nicole puts into each  piece she creates.  

She casts wax seal stamps with sterling silver. Which allows each piece to be unique and hand creates the look of an antique wax seal. This "timeless designs go well with everything and can be worn for years to come."

I was thrilled when my very special package arrived to assist with my review and to help promote an amazing giveaway right here on Fishful Lauren Nicole is going to giveaway away one of her customized Wax Seal Initial Sterling Silver Necklaces which includes a 18" Sterling Silver Chain and a Fresh Water Pearl, an $80 Value to one lucky person!!

Look at the adorable packaging my jewelry arrived in.  I knew before I opened this delightful box I was in store for something great! 

Look!!  This is an actual photo of my necklace that was handcrafted by Lauren Nicole, just for me!
Isn't it a beautiful work of art?  It took her a week to handcraft my heirloom piece.  This is quality material that is created into high class jewelry.

I love there are still people that take pride in the handmade products which they provide to the world to enjoy.  Not only does Lauren Nicole make beautiful necklaces, she offers many other handcrafted jewelry on her website and Facebook page like rings and bracelets to mention just a few.

So who wants to win???  Enter below for your chance and Good Luck!
