I just joined It Works! as an independent distributor!

Most of us who are on social media, like I am, have seen It Works! wraps. After seeing 100's of Before and After pictures I decided to take the plunge. As most of you know I lost a ton of weight about 5 years ago. Then due to medications I gained most back. I could go and just buy the wraps...But why not make money? To start as a distributor my kit was only $99. That's the price of a few drinks or dinner out.

I will be posting more information after I receive my kit. But if you want to try the products when I do. Or just wanna see what its about. Check out my website:

1.0mm Derma Roller + Eye Serum + Anti-aging Serum from Petunia skincare Review




1.0mm Derma Roller + Eye Serum + Anti-aging Serum Review!




For this review I will be reviewing three items from Petunia Skincare. I did use these items together so I decided to combine them all in my review. Overall I did like the entire line. My only dislike was the eye serum. The one I normally use I do prefer. If your wondering how I used these products. I would use the eye serum and face serum during the day. At night after I washed my face, I would use the derma roller and follow with the anti aging serum.

  • Petunia Eye Serum- This was my least favorite product. It did tighten my eyes but on multiple ocassions it seemed to get crispy. As in I had to rub off dry flakes of the product. This only happened on some ocassions, so I am not sure if I applied it to heavy. But with my normal serum I never had to worry about it. So I am unsure.
  • Anti-Aging Serum- I liked this product when I used it in combination with the derma roller I noticed a difference in my skin. After a couple of weeks it was smoother. I also used this under my foundation. My makeup seemed to wash off easier when I did.
  • 1.0mm Derma Roller- This was actually my FAVORITE item I tried. This is the second roller I have ever used. I liked this one better then my first. The roller is smaller so the pins are closer together. So it does not feel so odd going over your skin. My other roller's gaps make it feel more prickly, if that makes sense.

Great gift for the Mom on the go, the Modal Concept tote from Bestbuy

Modal Concept tote from Best Buy!


The Modal Concept Tote!


We all know Mother's Day is coming. Are you prepared to give the Mom in your life a gift? If your like me you procrastinate. It is not our fault, work, kids, school, and everyday life gets in the way. So what are you going to get the Mom in your life? The same perfume? A Robe and PJs? Those are all great ideas but how about something for the Mom on the go, or the Mom who is hard to shop for. 

That is where the Modal Concept tote from Best Buy comes in. Its great for anyone on the go. You can go from work to the gym. Or out with the kids to the gym. Why? Because it features great pockets and sleeves for all different things like:



  • Thermo pocket: For your lunch, snacks, or even a hot flat iron.
  • Laptop, tablet, and phone shaped pockets: makes for a quick trip from work/school to gym.
  • Moisture Resistant Fitness gear pockets: For shoes or wet swimwear.
  • Yoga mat holder
  • Sunglasses pocket and much more.
  • Great price: Retail $59.99
  • Free shipping on orders over $35
  • Free In-Store pickup, in as little as 45 minutes.





Here is a great video from BestBuy with the Modal bag.





As you know I am a Mom on the go. Blogging, work, kids, and dieting. It is a busy life. Yet I am trying to fit the gym in more. With the Model tote I can drag work, gym and anything else with me. I loved the bottom pocket so I can carry shoes without having to carry them in a grocery bag, or have them make my clothes dirty in a duffle bag. I also love that you can use it with handles or the optional strap to wear it over the shoulder. Depending on my day plans, is how I chose which. The thermal pocket is great for my curling iron. I never would take it because I would have to wait too long for it too cool. Now I can take it anywhere! I have to say this is a great bag for the Mom on the go.

Apple MFi Certified iPhone 6 Battery Case Review.




This review is going to be a bit hard for me. I received the product for review purposes. i am not sure if I received a faulty product or if the product is just bad. I tried to contact the company but they have not told me what to do with this review. I feel bad writing a review if its bad. I mean I may have gotten a bad batch. It happens but my review is due tomorrow. 

So what happened you might be asking? For the 1st week or so the case was great. Double battery life is a must. But then all of a sudden I started having charging problems. The phone would go from 80% to 20% in a matter of Five minutes. Then all of a sudden my screen started going black. My carrier suggested discontinuing use of the case. Whatever, was happening continued and I got stuck buying a new phone. I DO NOT recommend this product. 

It is available on Amazon.

US2_Ocean Mineral Cleanser Review




OZ Naturals mineral cleanser was supposed to be reviewed with an earlier product. But due to errors in shipping and it taking forever to get a response from the company. I am doing the review now.  I have been washing with this product for about two weeks now. It does work great for taking off makeup. And you know I love my makeup. Normally with washes like this I remove my eye makeup and face makeup together. However, my eyes burn when I do that. So this I recommend as a great face wash but remove eye make up separate. 


Wanna try Oz Naturals mineral cleanser yourself?
