I was sent the Green Tea with Lemon and the Raspberry Iced Teas. I shared the Green tea with my 11 year old and gave her the Raspberry to take to school. She loved them and asked me to please buy more.

I really liked the Green Tea with Lemon a lot. It has a great fresh taste, perfect iced tea. Plus it is organic, can't bea…

Review ~ La Vita All Natural Crunchy Cookies

Image
I was given the chance to try a brand new healthy cookie recently through Mom Fuse. I was sent the Raspberry/Lemon Crunchy Cookie by La Vita Health Foods, ltd to try out.

La Vita All Natural Crunchy Cookies introduces healthy snacking with
their new delicious line of cookies.

La Vita Health Foods, a leader in the healthy gourmet snack
food sector, announces the launch of their All Natural Crunchy Cookies
at NASFT.

La Vita has revolutionized cookies to create a new line of
delicious diabetic friendly, gluten and sugar-free, low fat, low
glycemic, cholesterol free, dairy-free, prebiotic, Vegan and Kosher

As soon as I got my package in the mail, I instantly opened up these cookies. I'm not a huge fan of raspberry, but I do love lemon. The cookies have a very subtle flavor and I really liked them a lot. I might have to start trying more raspberry items! What I liked the best though was the crunch. These cookies are literally very c…

Ladies this is a Must Have ~ Tassi

Image
My mom actually alerted me to this awesome product. She said she had to have one, so I got her a Tassi for Christmas.

Luckily for Me, I was sent the gorgeous Turquoise Tassi to try out for myself. So, What is Tassi? Well it is basically a terry cloth headband to hold your hair out of your face.

However, it is not your standard cheap headband you are used to. No way, for one this is super soft and comfortable. The back of the Tassi is larger then front, so it easily holds all of your hair. Tassi is so much better then those standard headbands or using a towel to wrap your hair.

I use the Tassi for washing my face, applying make-up, etc Anything that I need my bangs and the rest of my hair off my face. Plus, no matter how long I keep it on for, my hair never gets that dreaded headband indentation!

The Tassi comes on 12 great colors including white, soft pink, hot pink, chocolate brown, lavender, powder blue, lime green, tan, tangerine, turquoise, chili pepper red and black. My tw…

Current by Discover Card Teen Debit Card

Growing up, I was never really taught about money. My mom was the kind of mom that could not say no. Within reason, if I wanted something I got it. When I hit middle school, I would only wear name brand clothes, my mom actually took out a loan from the house to buy my clothes at Hudson's. She did similar things for my brother with his ever changing fads, etc. I started working at 16 at a clothing store in the mall. I mall was not the place to work when you love clothes and do not know how manage money let me tell you. I did start buying my own clothes, but I also started opening credit card accounts at 17. I did pretty good on my own for awhile, but since I was never taught about saving, when I lost my job at 18 due to the store closing I had no way to pay all my bills. That started my downward spiral into bad credit.
I've made it a goal of mine, not to let that happen with my girls. I openly talk to them about money. When we don't have it, we don't have it a…

Turbo Charge your Car

Image
My husbands hobby is cars. He loves working on cars, fixing them up, super charging them, adding hydraulics, lowering, etc.

He even lowered my car which I wasn't super thrilled with, lol.

He's starting to get into turbo charging cards. A turbo can significantly boost an engine's horsepower without significantly increasing its weight, which is the huge benefit that makes turbos so popular with people.

My car couldn't handle a turbocharger, so his next project, he wants to do a Volkswagen turbocharger.

I just finished reading the first book in a new series by Kim Hanks. It is titled Save The Best for Last.

Zwick Lamps, a secret admirer to Whitney Barnes, got targeted by a genius son of the past evil family that had lived in Green Oasis Town. However, it was once before that Zwick had finally discovered his supernatural powers that were only known by the isolated old woman Tabitha, a misfortuned lady whose husband died on their wedding day.


Save the Best for Last is a really quick read. It took me only 2 days, if I wasn't busy with my kiddos I could have easily finished it off in one afternoon. The book is an exciting 95 pages with some fascinating characters. The town of Green Oasis has an evil past. The story starts out telling us about this evil family that was killed, leaving only their one son Karl. We are introduced to Whitney right away who quickly becomes friends with the main character Zwick. Most of the characters attend the University. Whitney and Zwick become f…

Review ~ Fresh Hanger + Coupon Code!

Image
I don't like washing my clothes after wearing them only once, especially my nicer clothes. It is better for the environment, and it is better for your clothing. With my nicer clothes, I usually only wear them a few hours anyways, not enough time to wash after each use.

Through Mom Fuse, I found a really cool product that helps eliminate odors from your clothing. It is called The FRESHhanger™. Basically it is a cover that fits virtually any hanger and eliminates odors from clothing leaving them refreshed for the next use.

What you do, just hang the fragrance-free cover on any hanger and let FRESHhanger's patent pending and laboratory tested activated carbon technology do the work!

FRESHhanger has a number of advantages:

LABORATORY PROVEN RESULTS
- independent laboratory testing has proven that FRESHhanger reduces
odor causing compounds in clothing 6X more effectively than airing out!
- activated carbon - FRESHhanger's carefully selected main ingredient
- is the most abso…

Have you ever considered plastic surgery?

Image
I will be totally honest, I have thought about plastic surgery. I've always been thin, so I have wanted a breast augmentation since I was in high school. Since I got married at 19, it wasn't about attracting men. I wanted it for myself, to fill out clothes better, etc.

Now that I am in my early thirties, I'm not as stick thin. Now my focus is more on getting liposuction. The only area I have weight issues is my belly. I have that lovely pouch thing that us moms tend to get. I've tried exercising, eating better ~ nothing seems to get rid of it.

I'm pretty afraid of doctors though, so I have a lot of questions that could benefit from Cosmetic Surgery Help. This website is pretty cool. Right on the main page is a large box where you can ask your question about cosmetic surgery. You can also browse through other peoples questions. Plus there is a forum. Some questions, you might not even be sure you have!

Just a heads up, this is real medical site. As you as…
