The Belly Burner Belt Giveaway / Review 3 Winners - Total Value $87

Well the 1st Month of 2013 is coming to a close....

How are you doing on your goals you set a short 30+ days ago?

Was one of them to get back into shape and lose a little of the extra weight that sneaks up on most of us?

I hope everyone is doing well and exceeding their personal goals.  Especially if it deals with health and fitness.  And if you have stumbled...don't worry!...pick yourself back up...tomorrow is a new day and you can do it!  YES YOU CAN!!

And if you are lucky like I am...you may have the chance to try out a great fitness product that may jump start your weight loss and workout program.  **Keep reading as 3 lucky people will win "The Belly Burner"*** But you can't win if you don't enter below.

I have to share with you about this amazing, versatile and easy to use weight loss product.  I must admit, I was very skeptical about how a belt could melt away inches and pounds.  But, I was willing to give it a try and see what happened...It couldnt' hurt anything.

When The Belly Burner arrived I was surprised at how light weight it was and its ability to adjust to fit upto a 50" waist.  And The Belly Burner also came with a Meal Planner Nutrition Log, Exercise and Food Journal, Calorie Counter At-A-Glance, Simple Instruction Sheet and a great offer for a FREE Workout DVD featuring the creator of the Belly Burner Bobby Waldron (have to pay $7.95 for Shipping and handling).

I of course read the simple instructions to figure out how to use the Belly Burner...Don't worry it is not rocket science.  All you do is un-velcro the adjustable belt and either place it over or under your clothing.  Just make sure if you chose to wear it over your clothing that you are wearing something light and not too thick.  Then adjust it to fit your waist, belly area.  Wear the Belly Burner snug but make sure you are still comfortable.

I was surprised on how good and supportive the Belly Burner felt as soon as I put it on...I like to wear it directly on my skin with my clothing over the top during a workout.  Then get busy exercising....you will typically not notice a warming effect until after 10 to 15 minutes of wearing the Belly Burner belt while being active.

Did you know when you notice your body heating up under the Belly Burner Belt, it means your metabolic rate is increasing...which in turn means you are burning calories.  The concept behind this weight loss device is to increase your thermal core temperature to get rid of unwanted inches around your mid section.

And of course if you are increasing your core temp, you are going to start sweating...I mean sweating...but it feels so good and comforting.  I love how the Belly Burner makes me feel more secure and supported on my lower back.  So if you are sweating that obviously means your Belly Burner Belt is going to be in need of some attention.

It is recommended to keep it clean, just run it under cold water after your are done using it and lay it out to dry.  **DO NOT put it in a dryer, ever!**  It is machine washable  or you can hand wash it approximately once a month.  And that is it.  (After a few rinses the new smell of the Belly Band goes away.)

I like to lay my rinsed Belly Burner on a wooden drying rack to help speed it drying out.  As sometimes it seems to take a while to dry.  

I do have a confession to make.  I only had the chance to use the Belly Band three times and loved how it felt.  Then my husband stole it from me.  Which means I am just going to have to get one for myself.  It the last two weeks he has lost 1 1/2" from his mid section!  He has been wearing it when he exercises.  But the Belly Burner can we worn anytime during your daily actives.

But, I must admit I believe you have to make healthy lifestyle choices in conjunction with the Belly Burner Belt to see results.  So, if you are ready to make positive lifestyle changes or already have and want to get rid of those pesky extra inches...The Belly Burner could be your answer.  You can find The Belly Burner on Facebook.  Stop on by their page and show them some love for this great giveaway!


**Do not use if you are allergic to neoprene or acetate.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with Velata Fondue - Welcome Romance

Welcome Romance!

Make your Valentine's Day memorable this year...There is still time and it will not empty out your purse or wallet!

But before I share my closely guarded Valentine's Romance Secret; I have to ask you a question or two...

Do you find chocolate sexy?  Do you find melted rich chocolate even sexier?  How about fine melted chocolate dipped in plump, deep, sweet, red strawberries?

Do I have your attention now?

Okay...Ladies here is my suggestion to have the best, yet affordable Valentine's Day ever...Keep reading or "accidentally" (wink! wink!) leave this web page up for your significant partner to find and realize what you want for Valentine's Day!


Smooth, Creamy, Rich, Dreamy, Premium, Sweet, Silky, Elegant, Bold, Lush and Romantic are the words I feel the need to share about my experiences with the 4 offerings of Velata Dipping Premium Chocolate available online for purchase...typically takes 10 days from placing and order so there is still time! 

I did say 4 different kinds of Sexy Chocolaty Belgian Goodness, including Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate and Caramel Milk Chocolate from Velata. 

I am sorry....I was so excited about all the chocolate options..I forgot to tell you what you need to do with all the luscious, sweet goodness.

Well you need to get a very versatile and easy to operate Velata Fondue Warmer (you have got to check out all the different warmers available for purchase)**Hint! Hint...Significant Other if you are still reading this...Simply Gotta have many gorgeous red colored ones..perfect for Valentine's Day!!!** 

No dangerous candles are needed to melt your sexy chocolate this Valentine's Day.  Velata Fondue Warmers use a 25 watt light bulb.  And to speed up the melting process a quick trip of your Velata pouch of premium chocolate into the microwave for 1 minute...and pour directly into your preheated warmer.  You can control the temp of the warmer with a turn of a dial located on the warmer cord.  So your seductive Velata Chocolate will stay at a safe and lovely dipping temperature.

Ok, now that you know about the affordable and romantic Premium Belgian Chocolate and Velata Fondue Warmer...What do you need next, to make your Valentine's Day perfectly Sweet?

How about Velata's New Line of Accessories, including multicolored square serving plates.  

If you are going to make this Sweetheart's Holiday perfect, you need to have all the finishing touches and this addition is certain to be a hit and can be re-used.

Well, the last or should I say second to last requirement is what are you going to do with all the melted chocolate?  Get you mind out of the gutter!!!  What food are you going to dip?  How about cherries?

Or Strawberries and other fresh fruit and even some sweets like marshmallows?  The possibilities are endless.

Well, have you placed your Valentine's Day order yet with Simply Gotta (Facebook) for your Velata Fondue?   


Make you Valentine's Day Extra Sweet with this Romantic and Special Fondue Experience.

OtterBox Dry Boxes - Not just for Cell Phones Cases Review

I have heard so much about OtterBox Cases when it comes to protecting smart phones from damage.  I am almost embarrassed to admit, no one in our house owns a smart phone..there I said it...we don't own a smart phone.

So when I was given the opportunity to review an product or two from OtterBox, I couldn't wait to learn more about this company and to see if they offered something else I could actually use...since we are smart phoneless.
 


I couldn't believe the amazing and large selection of products OtterBox offers including but not limited too:

Smart Phone Cases for many different brands and styles
Kindle Fire Cases
Blackberry
Tablets
And even....Dry Boxes.

Ah, Yes, Dry Boxes!  Something I can and will be using A LOT!

But, before I share my experience with two of the OtterBox - Dry Boxes.  A little bit about the Otter Box Company.  

I was surprised to learn they are located not far from my stomping grounds in Ft. Collins, Colorado.  This company had been around since 1998.  How cool is that...and the reason for the OtterBox name?  The original line of cases created are waterproof, just like an Otter's fur.  And like an Otter the business likes to have fun and work hard and play hard too.

Otter Box didn't just stop, obviously with their waterproof cases.  They have continued to brain storm and evolve their line in order to help protect our technology.  They total "get" how real people handle their belongings or should I say understand how the unthinkable happens to every one's belongings.  They strive with the assistance of Otter Box products to help protect certain belongings from most disasters. 

So one of my selections was an OtterBox from the their Pursuit series cases and the second was the OtterBox 8000.

First a little about the OtterBox Pursuit 40...     

It is offered in three different colors.  I selected the color Expedition (Clear).  It's outside dimensions are 2.05" H x 4.75"W x 6.95"D and can hold the rectangular volume of 1" H x 2.875" W x 5.5" D.  As you can see by my photo above it has an easy and large open latch and a webbed like rubberized netting to help secure and cushion whatever belongings will fit inside.

I am planning on using my OtterBox Pursuit to store my unsmart phone, medication, money, ID, matches and even a small snack while I am out on a boat this summer.  It will give me piece of mind knowing that this Otter Box is 100% waterproof.  Not only it is waterproof it helps protect against dust, dropping and crushing.  

The OtterBox Pursuit also come with a lockable carabiner loop so you can tether it and in my photo above the Otter Box 8000 comes with a handy belt clip that feels very sturdy and should stand up to any challenge.  

The OtterBox 8000 interior dimensions are 1.935" x 2.831" x 5.188" - which I think will be perfect for my little digital camera.  I love the inside covering of this Dry Box.  

It is so velvety and soft.  Something so cozy on the inside, but rugged on the outside and are designed to withstand submersion's up to 100 feet.  What else could you ask for...it is even crushproof and airtight!  Look out  camera...you are going to be extra protected thanks to OtterBox!

You can learn more about all the offers from OtterBox via social media:

I received one of the items mentioned above free of charge in order to facilitate this review while participating in a campaign with Mom Bloggers Club and OtterBox. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own.

Smoothmoves Supplies FastFold Moving Boxes Giveaway / Review HUGE VALUE!

Have you packed up all your Holiday Decorations yet? (I am pleased to report I have!!!)

Or, are you getting ready for a big move?

Or, do you just have too much stuff....and need to put some of it into a storage unit?

I don't know about you, but it seems like when I am in need of boxes for storage and moving I can't find any!  And the boxes I do find are not the right size or so expensive to purchase that I just don't. 

But soon I regret that choice when my personal belongings end up broken, damaged or that I never can find where I put those speical items I now need.  Or worse yet...those seasonal clothes that are clean and ironed before packing them up every year...I know you know what I am talking about.  Yes, those clothes when the season arrives again...you have to wash an re-iron them becuase you didn't have a way to store them correctly.  All I have to say to that situation happening again.....NO MORE!  NO MORE thanks to an amazing Moving Boxes and Moving Supply company I now have had the oppournity to work with and someone is going to recieve some of their afforable and useful products themselves...Enter Below!

This amazing and quick shipping company is called...

SmoothMove Supplies

So where do I begin...my head is spinning for the excitement of the top quality products I recieved to review.

Ummm, should I tell you all about their signature FastFold boxes that are hassle free and tape free...and even have handles?  Or how about the Wardrobe Boxes?  No, No or the SmoothMove picture/Mirror Boxes?  Do you need tape or a tape dispenser?  SmoothMove Supplies has those too! 

Ok, my mind is made up!  I am going to start with the super convienant and easy to assemble and use...


I must say my favorite feature of this moving boxes or should I say feature you don't need is TAPE....NO TAPE REQUIRED on this beauties!!

So, since no tape is necessary, FastFold boxes are easy to assemble and disassemble..so you can use them over and over and over....Great way to get your money's worth.

They are patented with a lid that locks into place so you don't lose your cherished belongings.  And the hand holes make moving FastFold boxes comfortable as the holes are durable.  SmoothMove Supplies has created a unique design with the FastFold line which makes them stronger than typical moving boxes. 

They are offered in four different sizes to meet your needs.  **And they are recyclable**

SmoothMove Supplies do offer Traditional Moving Boxes too.


Remember earlier how I was taking about the normal problems with storing seasonal clothing or even when you are moving?

That is why you need to invest in SmoothMove Wardrobe Boxes.  I will admit I have never heard of such a thing until I received my items...but I will never forgot them now!  They are a necessity in any household....or that is at least my opinion!

This boxes are fantastic!!  You just take the items hanging in your closet and place them right into the SmoothMove Wardrobe boxes...hangers and all!  As each Wardrobe box comes with a metal bar that can store up to 2 linear feet of clothes.  So when it is time to put your clothes back into your closet...just open up the box and put them right back in...no more have to re-wash and iron.....I am in LOVE!! 

I am planning on making sure to use plastic bags on my clothes I store in the SmoothMove Wardrobe Boxes to keep them clean and dust free.  Especially if they are going to be stored for long periods of time.  SmoothMove Supplies recommends on their website to avoid packing heavier things such as shoes and lining in the bottom of their Wardrobe boxes, as it can make moving the box too heavy to manage.  What a great tip...Thanks SmoothMove Supplies.

Did you know SmoothMove Supplies even offers specially designed boxes to help move and store your mirrors and pictures.  They are called Picture/Mirror moving boxes and come in three different sizes.  They recommend selecting the size you need to help protect your fragile items the best.  Just make sure you leave room to properly package your pictures and mirrors first before securing them into the SmoothMove boxes.  As by adding an extra layer of cushion like bubble wrap, cushion foam or other padding can help to keep your items save and sound along they way to their new home. 

Make sure you have tape on hand with the Wardrobe Boxes and the Picture and Mirror Boxes as they do require tape.  But, SmoothMove Wardrobe makes it convenient...as they offer SmoothMove Tape and a Dispenser.  

The dispenser has a great comfortable handgrip.  And if you have ever moved before...I am certain you understand how important that grip is!  Just slid the tape dispenser along the seam of SmoothMove boxes to seal them.  It is recommended by SmoothMove Supplies to extend packing tape a 1/3 of the way up each side of moving boxes in order to make sure the seal break or loosen, especially if your moving box is heavy.

I am pleased to share a great Promo Code just for my readers.... use the code.... FISHFUL when placing an order with SmoothMove Supplies and receive 10% your order and FREE SHIPPING.

Don't forget to check out SmoothMove Supplies on all their Social Media Sites....it also will help you get a head start on some of the great ways to enter and win!! (Thank you SmoothMove Supplies for all the great images from your website)

Enter to win a $5000.00 college scholarship and a year’s supply of Nordic Naturals

Months ago I had the opportunity to blog about an amazing company called Nordic Naturals. 

As this outstanding company shares on their Facebook page... "Nordic Naturals is dedicated to helping you live a healthy, vibrant, extraordinary life. With our commitment to sustainable fishing practices and research-driven formulas, Nordic Naturals delivers the purest omega oils for you, your family, and even your pet companions!"

Some of their products specifically contain Omega-3 fatty acids (like...Nordic Omega-3 Gummies for ages 2+, Children's DHA for ages 3+, and Baby's DHA for babies 5 to 35 pounds).  And in case you haven't heard Omega-3 fatty acids are considered "smart fats" as they help your brain.  Omega-3 has been studied which  has lead to scientific evidence that links consuming omega-3 fatty acids and improved learning, attention, behavior, memory and even higher test scores in children.

I know as a mother I am willing do to anything to get my children a better chance at success, espeically when it comes to learning.

I am so glad companies like Nordic Naturals which can be found on Twitter have our children's future in mind.  Not only does Nordic Naturals care about our children...they are giving away an Amazing Prize to one lucky person.

But you can't win if you don't enter the Essential Essay Scholarship from Nordic Naturals.

So how do I keep from looking like a drown rat? And have hair that will be acceptable to return to work with?  Especially since I have long hair again, with bangs.

Well.... Sweaty Bands ...... Of course!

Not only can I wear my Sweaty Band during my intense workouts...and it stays in place!  I can even wear it too work.

I love my Scroll Down Your Play List style Sweaty Band I was provided for this review


...And Keep reading for you chance to win a Sweaty Band of your own.

I had NO idea how useful and now necessary a Sweaty Band is in my daily workouts and routines!  No wonder Sweaty Bands which began in October 2007 has been featured in SELF Magazine twice, in 2010 was named the Official Headband of the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour, in 2011 are on sale in 1000 stores and in 2012 received its first purchase order from Disney...to name just a few of the major accomplishments of this growing fitness product!

Okay...Don't worry that a headband which can hold up to so much...is challenging to put on!  Because it is not!  "It fits like any other headband." The difference is a Sweaty won’t slip.

"Start by putting it over your head and wearing it like a necklace. Then, slide the elastic band to the back of your head and the decorative ribbon up toward your hairline. Tuck the band behind your ears. You can adjust the band until it fits snuggly. Some ladies and girls find it is most comfortable close to their foreheads; others are able to push it further back.

Infants' and Children's Advil Review. Thank you Smiley360.com

I was so excited to learn I would be part of an amazing mission with the help of Smiley360.com.

I was blessed with the opportunity to sample and review free of cost Infants' and Children's Advil.

What great timing with cold and flu season upon all of us.  And this season seems to be hitting everyone very hard.

We are huge fans already of Children's Advil already at our home, but my free sample courtesy of Smiley360 couldn't have showed up on a better day.

My son had been sick and was running a fever. With a dose of Children's Advil (for ages 2-11 years), his fever went down in less than 20 minutes. It also helped relieve some of his aches and pains too.

My son enjoyed the flavor (White Grape) and texture, which is great. That can be a challenge many times with liquid medication. Children's Advil is a great product that works quickly.  As a parent I really like that Children's and Infants' Advil is Dye-Free and can last up to 8 hours. 

The Infants' Advil is a great medication when needed for ages 6 to 23 months.  It comes with an easy does dropper that is clearly marked for correct dosing,

I highly recommend it and this is my own personal opinion.

90 Day Get Fit Challenge - Fellow Blogger Apply for your chance to join and get 90 days for FREE!

I have exciting news!  

I have just signed on for a 90 Day Get Fit Challenge!  Yes, I know I have just lost 45 pounds in the last 28 weeks, but I want to finishing losing those last 10 to 15 pounds.  I want to be at the peak of my physical fitness!  And I love being accountable to all my blog followers as to what goals I have set.  I also love the chance to giveaway amazing products that I have the blessing to try out too (keep an eye out during my 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge for your chance to win).

So, to get my 90 Day Challenge started on the right foot I was able to select one of Creative Bioscience Weight loss products to use during my challenge and review.  I truly have spend the last three days trying to figure out which of their numerous products would be the best for my weight loss/fitness goals.  

I even had the opportunity to receive email support to help me chose the best product for what I want to achieve.  It was suggested I try the Creative Bioscience hGC drop which work best when used with a calorie restricted diet like the one I just finished.  Or the Bioscience Diet 1234 - which is stimulant based.  I really thought about the Diet 1234 but was concerned about being too wired. I also read the info on it and it recommends only working out light to moderate.  I am typically off the charts with my workouts.

So drum roll please.  I have selected Creative Bioscience 30 Day Diet - which I will use for 90 days.  It contains "clinically supported herbal extracts such as Lychee Fruit Extract, African Mango, and Raspberry Ketones for weight loss, increased energy, and greater appetite control. With a faster metabolism, more zip, and fewer cravings, you can't help but lose weight." 

I can't wait to see what type of results I will have....

DermOrganic Argan Oil Hair Products Review - Cruelty Free and Vegan!


As my health and fitness continue to improve dramatically, I must not forget about the health of my hair.

So when I was contacted to review a great line of Cruelty-fee and Vegan hair products called


I couldn't wait to see how they would work on my hair.  Especially since it is winter and very dry (no humidity) where I live.  And my hair is finally grown out after donating my last long locks to cancer patients, as I am a proud cancer survivor myself.

So I had to do my research about what I was going to be putting on my hair and scalp.  I learned DermOrganic Professional products are Sulfate-free, Gluten-Free and Sodium Chloride Free.  DermOrganic do not test on animals and are also Paraben-Free and Propylene Glycol-Free.  They are made with Argan Oil. 

I don't know about you but I had no idea what Argan Oil was.  So, I read a little bit about it and learned Argan Oil is rich in omega-6, antioxidants and vitamin E.  With all of these great for your hair features Argan Oil creates a protective barrier against the daily damaging effects of sun, wind (it is always windy here!) and heat.  Which allows DermOrganic to restore the shine and health of your hair. 

Not only does DermOrganic hair treatments contain healthy Argan Oil...they also combine the therapeutic qualities of rice amino acids and grapeseed extract which helps repair, smooth and soften your hair. 

I love the phrase used on DermOrganic's website... "we believe the ingredients we don’t use are just as important as the ones we do".

I know...doesn't this sound too good to be true?  Well, I am living proof it is NOT!

I was sent out six products from the DermOrganic Argan Oil Hair Treatment Line to review...

Keep reading to learn what great products I received and my honest opinion..

DermOrganic Daily Conditioning Shampoo:

I couldn't believe how thick and rich this shampoo is!  But the built in pump made it come out of the bottle nice and easy.  OHHH the lather!  DermOrganic's had out done themselves and are hands down the most luxurious lathering Shampoo I have ever tried!  The very light scent was pleasant and clean.  This shampoo is safe for color treated hair and made with skin cleaners!  It is safe and gentle but revitalizes and enlivens your hair.  It left my hair feeling healthy and soft.

DermOrganic Daily Hydrating Conditioner:

Was also nice and thick yet came out of the bottle easily with the built in pump.  The very light scent matched the Daily Conditioning Shampoo.  I found that this conditioner rinsed from my hair easily and didn't weigh it down.  It did an amazing job on my hair tangles, now that my hair has grown out...which I really liked!  I also noticed that I didn't have to deal with all my fly aways after using DermOrganic's daily hydrating conditioner.  This is also color safe for everyday use.

DermOrganic Leave-In Treatment:

The recommended next step is Leave-In Treatment or Shine Therapy in the DermOrganic line.  I must say the scent of this Leave-In Treatment reminded me of fruity bubblegum and I liked it.  Just be careful when getting your penny's worth size out of the bottle.  It comes out very quickly and I would hate for you to waste any of this great product.  Just rub your hands together and then work it through your hair  I was surprised at how quickly it was absorbed.  And DermOrganic's state it is absorbed even quicker if you blow dry your hair.  This added extra moisture to my hair without weighing it down or making it look greasy. 

DermOrganic Intensive Hair Repair Masque:

Repair your damaged hair in just two to five minutes.  It is recommend you use this repair masque twice a week.  Just apply it to your clean hair and rinse out in 2 to 5 minutes.  That is all it takes to repair your damaged hair.  While it is repairing your hair it smoothes and softens + strengthens and texturizes.  I noticed that my hair feels fuller after using the Masque.  It has a nice clean scent.

DermOrganic Firm Hold Volume Foam:

Yes, that is correct DermOrganic didn't forget about your styling hair needs.  It is alcohol free and contains anti-fade extracts.  It has a nice citrus scent and pumps out perfectly.  I do use hair mouse typically, just to style my bangs, so I can't speak for its claims to thicken, lift and support curly hair.  But, it worked just fine to help styling my bangs.

DermOrganic Fast Dry Shaping Spray Plus Hold:

I do not use hairspray typically but it includes Anti-Fade Extracts and is waterless so it dries on contact.  I can testify that it does dry instantly on contact.  What a great invention!  It is an aerosol so an even application is easy.

PeachSuite Hotel Supply

Don't worry you don't have to own a hotel to shop and save money at PeachSuite Hotel Supply.  They have great sales and even offer free shipping on order over $500.  I couldn't believe the wide selection they offer of kitchen items; Everything from juices to cookware to knives.

As a company who offers Hotel Supplies Online  they has access to quality products at an affordable price.  They even have a Clearance section...which is music to my ears.  I couldn't believe the great deals they had on storage containers.  Who knows what they might offer when you check them out?

And if you are a traveler, this great Hotel Amenities Supplier can get you stocked up on convenience sized products like deodorant, bar soap and shampoo.  The possiblities are endless.  But, you can't begin to imagine all the great deals unless you head on over and check them out.

Week 28 Nutrisystem - This has been an amazing weight loss journey with 45 pounds lost #NSNation

Week 28- on Nutrisystem and my amazing journey being a Nutrisystem Blogger has come to an end.  It is bittersweet for me.  I am so close to reaching my updated goal weight and would love to reach it while being on Nutrisystem...and get that 50 pound Nutribear (lol), but my new found way of life will continue. 

I honestly believe my life changing experience with Nutrisystem as been one of the biggest blessings about being a blogger.  Check out my photo from back in May 2012.
 
I started Nutrisystem in June of 2012.  And look at me now!

Taken 10-29-12
I actually love the way I look and feel.  I am so proud of what I have accomplished in the last 28 weeks.  I still will continue to try to lose the last few pounds that I have set for my personal goal.  I am so close and pray with what I have learned from Nutrisystem and their outstanding support...I will succeed. 

I have went from a size 16 jeans down to between a 5 and 7/8 (just matters on the pair of jeans).  I have went from an XL t-shirt being tight to a Medium being a little too big.

I have went from not working out at all.  To being a workout addict.  I have only missed 2 workouts since I started Nutrisystem, which means I have worked out a total of 196 days in the last 198 days!  I love my Beach Body Workouts!  I feel strong and healthy.  I look strong and healthy.  I finally look the way I felt inside my body.
