Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review

pine_bros_logo

        Unfortunately I am one of "those" people that it is always debatable as to whether or not I am a hypochondriac or not.  I am ALWAYS sick! I have the worst immune system in the world and it's probably my fault as I don't take a daily multivitamin or get the proper amount of rest that's recommended.  But honestly what parent does?

Shout Factory LITTLEST PET SHOP: Little Pets, Big Adventures DVD Review

Shout!Factory
        When Alana first came into my life she was around the age of 6.  That is right around the time that these new little pet toys came out that soon became a huge hit with all the kiddos - Littlest Pet Shop!  These little toys remind me of our Polly pockets.  Littlest Pet shop seems to be one of the longer enjoyed toys of kiddos as Alana is now 14 and these are still popular.

     Is it not the most relaxing feeling to lay by the shore and hear the waves crash in?!  I sure think so.  There's just something calming about the noise as it brings us to our own special place.  Even by watching the smooth movement of water flowing through somewhere can have this affect on a person.

Bulu Box Monthly Subscription Review


Bulu Box
        It isn't easy to decide on a health or fitness program anymore since there are so many choices available, all promising you the world of health and weight loss   I am afraid every time I decide to start up a diet to try something new since everything is soooo expensive and 90% of it either doesn't work or it makes you feel like you are on crack.  As I have frequently been reviewing these, it seems as though the "new thing" is joining a monthly mailing club where you get a whole buffet of items to try out, test, and enjoy before you have to spend the full amount only to find out you dislike a product or the way it works.  The most recent company I stumbled across is Bulu Box.

Genesis Today Pure Energy Organic Açaí Energy Shots Review and Giveaway

        Not only are there a thousand dieting products available for purchase these days, but there are a ton of energy drinks available.  They have become insanely popular and for all ages.  High School students drink them as performance boosters in sports, college students drink them during study all nighters, and adults drink them to keep going throughout long work days.  Regardless of the reason its become impossible to decide on one as they all promise you the world.

Creative Bioscience hCG 1234® 90 Day Challenge Review Wrapup and Giveaway

Creative Bioscience

        Never in my life could I have imagined myself as a dieter.  I was always that girl that made fun of portioning and calorie counting.  I could eat and drink more than most guys in college.  Still at that age I was athletically fit and a healthy skinny.  I'd stay up half the night drinking and finish my evening off with a burger made in the Frat house kitchen or a chicken quesadilla from Taco Bell.  Then, mother nature met up with me and decided to dump as much weight on me as possible.  Kind of like a big "F" you for getting away with it for too long.

        Now I am over 50 pounds heavier and most things I try only get results through starving myself or it takes forever and a day to lose even one pound.  So when Creative Bioscience asked me to join their 90 day challenge, I was of course in to try something new.  Because these products can already be found at local stores like Walmart, Walgreens, or Costco, Creative Bioscience want to spread the word online.

        After some discussion with one of the Creative Bioscience reps, I decided to try the hCG 1234® Diet option for my challenge.  "hCG 1234® is a dynamic diet supplement designed for rapid weight loss.  hCG dieting does not require exercise, and dieters choose a calorie plan to fit their situation."

Before Pic which you may have seen from the Flex Belt as I started both at the same time. 

        I know originally all hCG diets had bad reputations for starving yourself.  If I even remember correctly, I think you were only allowed 500 calories max per day with limited food choices even so - NOT HEALTHY.  Creative Bioscience is the first company to introduce a 1200 dietary calorie blend!  "Trained weight loss experts stand ready 24/7 to help hCG 1234® dieters set reasonable goals, get past diet plateaus, and answer questions."
hcg drops
        I have now been taking the HCG 1234 for about 75 days.  I have noticed quite a bit of change in my body and especially around my mid section.  So far though I will say there are a few things I am not a huge fan of.  First you are supposed to keep the drops under your tongue for 1-2 minutes which is extremely difficult to do for those of us with gag reflexes.  Your also not supposed to eat or drink anything for ten minutes prior/after.  I HAVE to drink water afterwards or I start to feel nauseous.

AFTER Pic which you may have seen from the Flex Belt as I started both at the same time.

        The more I take these the more I despise the experience and mostly just because of the taste and having to hold them under the tongue.  I have noticed a significant difference though in several things.  My appetite has completely decreased which I've never been able to do before.  Because of this I can also tell my stomach is shrinking as I am getting full much quicker.  I will say this do NOT try to take this the day after drinking alcohol as it will make you sick.  I tried this once a week or so ago and paid dearly for it!

Cost:  $99 - 90 day supply (3 bottles)
Available to purchase:  HCG 1234
Recommendation:  As much as I think this price is kind of outrageous, I actually liked this product for once and it worked for me.  This says a lot since I have tried several non-exercising options to lose weight.  I am down from 187 to 180 which I feel good about even though I expected  more weight-loss   (These past few months there has been a lot of added stress in my life making it difficult to diet properly).

Holy Clothing Renaissance Medieval Princess Gown Dress Review

        I know this is going to sound crazy but I've always felt as if I was born in the wrong era.  Its really weird but until I met my husband I was a very dominant female and felt very strongly about woman being successful.  But as far as style and roles, I wish I lived at least 50-75 years ago.  I most of this comes from how I was brought up and how close I was with my mother.

Dreamfarm Chobs Review

Dreamfarm Logo
        If you are anything like me and my husband, you are always asking things like "Why don't they have one of these? or Wouldn't it be great if they made something like this?"  We are always trying to think up unique gadgets for different problem areas of the kitchen (and of course other areas of the home).  We have had tons of great ideas but no resources to actually see if they would be something others are interested in.

Nielsen Massey Pure Extracts Review and Giveaway

Last year Alana finally became interested in learning to bake with me and I LOVE showing off my skills!  The boys have even begun to show an interest (although its more in getting messy but oh well)!

Ohio Flame Featured on KeepAmerica and Review (reposted)

 Ohio Flame will be featured on FOX CT tomorrow at 9:00AM for KeepAmerica's American Made Holiday Gift Guide.  This is huge for them so please show your support and tune in.  This is an amazing company with great personalize customer service.  I feel like part of the Ohio Flame family even though I live in Michigan :) !
Ohio Flame, Inc.
      When I was younger we used to camp at least two times a month.  I believe this is where my love for natural wood fires has come from.  Every where I have ever lived has either had firepits on the property (apartments) or I've gone out and bought one for my backyard.  Unfortunately my last one was obviously cheap and only lasted for one season last year when we moved into our current house.  Although Michigan doesn't allow for a long summer season, you will find us outdoors six out of seven nights and from the first remotely warm day (above 60 degrees outside) to the first day of snow if we can.  Our falls are perfect bonfire weather.

Unbreakoball Review (reposted) and Giveaway #6

Unbreakoball
        So we are big animal lovers in my household but over time we have decided on a few rules for our household pets based on our pet peeves (haha that wasn't meant to be ironic).  A big rule of ours is the no stuffing and no squeaker rule.  I can tolerate the noise more than my husband but neither of us have any patience for the fluff every where in our house ten minutes after giving the dogs a new toy.

HMDX Jam Wireless Speaker Review

        Instead of carrying around a boombox like in the 80's or a CD player in the 90's whenever you wanted to hear some music, kids now have their iPods.  While working with MyChargePower.com on one of my more recent reviews, I was introduced to the newest way to 'jam out' - Jams Wireless Speakers!

myCharge Summit 3000 Review

myCharge
        As a blogger technology and electronics are a huge part of my life!  Being up on the newest and best in each category is key.  But I am also a green living blogger which causes for some serious controversy when using all of this technology.  I can't always seem to find that happy medium between wanting the latest technology and conserving energy.  That is unless I am able to find an energy saving or possibly solar product!  You know that I recently made the switch to solar powered string lighting and have been since then searching out other great ways to keep up.
