Funkyflick - find new movies opportunity

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Funkyflick Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Find new movies. Funkyflick knows how.
Have you ever fallen completely in love with a certain movie, book, or actor and thought to yourself, "I wish I could find another movie like"?

Well, now you can! I just found this new website called FunkyFlicks. Basically you go on to Funkyflicks at www.funkyflick.com and you start off by easily creating an account. Then you can go into the home screen and decide what you want to search for. One of my favorite's is Goodfellas so I decided to search for movies that are similar to Goodfellas. After hitting search, I was so surprised that Funkyflicks quickly provided me with 36 movies that were similar to my search. I honestly thought that I had seen all the so called gangster movies similar to Goodfellas but I was wrong. Funkyflick showed me new movies, old movies that I had never heard of but they looked good.

You are also able to drag your cursor over the movie titles and you will get a brief synopsis of the movie. Click on the movie and you get even more options such as to share on Facebook, buy from Amazon or add it to your personal movie picks by choosing the Pick It button. 
There are other things to do on Funkyflicks too. You can invite friends to join you by email or Facebook and also connect by Facebook. For the real movie buffs such as myself, there are several different forums to choose from and converse with others, or find out more about Funkyflicks pick of the week.

It is pretty new and still in beta, but I played around with it for a while and I had no problems.
So go ahead and check out www.funkyflick.com and let me know what you think. I really think you will be surprised at the results.

If you don't know who Shadow or Zoomer is then you must not have kids.
Shadow is Zoomer's buddy. Zoomer and Shadow or interactive electronic robotic dogs.
They are also a kids best friend.

I was so excited when I was contacted and asked if i would like to test and try a dog from the Zoomer line for free in exchange for my honest review and opinion.
Heck yes. These robotic dogs can run up to $99.99
I was so super excited!

When Shadow arrived on my doorstep I was super stoked because my son has been begging for a Zoomer. Shadow is from the Zoomer family and is Zoomer's best buddy.

I have to admit the box and Shadow were a lot smaller in person and the box was really hard to open or maybe we were just so exited that it seemed to take forever.

After finally destroying the cute little box that Shadow came in, we realized he was rechargeable. That is a big plus! No worrying about how we would have to keep batteries on hand. Shadow also comes with an easy to read instruction booklet.

We had to charge Shadow a few hours before he was ready to play.

Once charged, Shadows eyes light up and he ready to go. Shadow moved very robot like which is actually to be expected because, he is after all a robot dog. Great for kids who live in homes where pets are not allowed or some one is allergic.
Shadow has a list of commands you can teach him and you need to remember that he is still a puppy at first and puppy's do mistakes. I personally love it because it really makes it seem more lifelike.
My son absolutely loves Shadow and has been trying to train him, however he has had a problem because you need to have a clear and concise voice when teaching Shadow, my son is 6, and has a bit of a lisp, so it has been a little hard, but we are working on it.
Shadow also has other commandos that are not listed in the instruction booklet so its going to be fun trying to find out what the secret commands are, I'm sure you can google it or look it up on SpinMasters website but we want to figure it out ourselves.

Shadow does need to be charged about every 90 minutes of continuous play, which is a negative, but we just call it nap time.

Shadow was originally going to be used as my sons toy, but I have to admit, our whole family fell in love with him.

This was by far one of the best toys/products my family and i got to review.
Shadow and the whole line of the Zoomer family is definitely on the tip top of the

Gaffer Tape by GafferPower
This review is from: Professional Premium Grade Gaffer Tape - Black 2 Inch - 30 Yards - Heavy Duty Pro Gaff Tape - Strong, Tough and Powerful, Secures Cables, Holds Down Wires Leaving No Sticky Residue - Very Easy to Tear - Non- Reflective - Water Proof - Multipurpose for Around the House - Better Than Duct Tape - For the True Professional. Order Risk Free - 100% Moneyback Guarantee. Gafferpower© (Office Product)
First of all, I would like to say that my order for Gaffer Tape was put in on 9/23/14 & I received it on 9/24/14 from the USPS. That is mighty fast. So I was already a impressed, which is good because the price does seem to be a little on the heavy side. Well you know the old saying, you get what you pay for, it is very true because Gaffer Tape from the Gaffer Power company is really high quality. You can actually feel the difference from other tapes as soon as you get it. This tape is much heavier then any other tape I have ever tried.
I received the black tape. It is a flat black in color which is much nicer then other tapes because you don't get that shine look that stands out when your trying to use tape discreetly. Its 2 inches in width and approximately 30 yards. It is threaded with a magical type fiber that is really strong yet very easy to tear.
I am a mom of 3 kids, I really did not think I would be so easily impressed by"Tape" but I truly am.
I used Gaffer Tape to tie and hold all my wires together and in place that were sticking out of the side of my entertainment center. You know the wires I am talking about, those black wires from the TV, DVD, Cable, Surround Sound Speakers, Game Consoles, etc. Our entertainment center is made of glass and all those pesky wires were such an eyesore before and now it looks 100x better.
Like I said before, Gaffer Tape is so easy to use and you really do not need any other tools when using it, like scissors or anything because even though it is very strong it is super easy to tear. As a mom, that's a big plus!
I did receive Gaffer Tape free to try and test in exchange for my honest opinion and I am really glad I did.
It is going to be put to great use now that the holidays are coming, and I will be able to use it in putting out my decorations since it is also waterproof.Far better then duct tape and electrical tape!
I would also like to let you know that it comes in white to which is great for falt screen tvs that are mounted on the walls.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Good morning everyone!
Well California finally got a little rain this early morning which is great for us affected by the drought.
If, you haven't heard, California is in a severe drought and we also have some violent wildfires going on, so every drop of rain really helps!
Well today is Thursday and all 3 of my kids are home. My 6 year old has a stomach bug, and the 12 and 17 year old say they are not feeling well, but between you and I, I know better. The girls are fine, but honestly I have been up for two night with my 6 year old so at this point I really didn't care.
It was nice to sleep in a little bit.

About 9am everyone started waking up and I was literally starving. I decided to make eggs and chorizo, one of my favorites, but these kids were not having it. 
They each wanted something different for breakfast.
Yes, they are spoiled.
I started by making hard boiled eggs for the really sick one, followed by a roast beef cold cut sandwich for the 12 year old and the 17 year old was fine with Mexican hot chocolate. 
Finally, the breakfast chore was done and I started to cook my eggs and chorizo, which I will share the recipe for at the bottom of this post.

As I am in the kitchen eating my breakfast, sipping on my coffee and checking my emails, I can hear the kids in the living room watching one of the cartoon channels. Yes my 17 year old still watches cartoons. 
I think to myself how nice it is at this moment, delicious breakfast, hot coffee, sprinkling of rain, all is right in the morning.
I hear the bickering begin, 
"Yes, they do!"
"No, they don't!'
I'm seriously not feeling it today and I walk in to the living room.
Apparently they were arguing about aliens, whether or not aliens eat and need protein. Yes, I am serious.
As I roll my ears, I hear a word I haven't heard since I was a teen. Good to know "Butt head"is making a comeback. 

Alright, enough about me and my morning. 
How is your day going?


I am really excited about the next coming month of my blog. There are going to be several different types of posts. I'm going to be talking about Halloween, Sharing Recipes & Party Ideas.
I am a Halloween freak! I try to go all out in decorations and party ideas. I cant wait to go into further detail with you guys.
I will also be featuring a segment on how to get more for your buck when it comes to cell phone plans, and of course there will be product reviews and maybe a giveaway or two!
OK, well I better get off here, I am in my room and I just heard a loud crash. Normally I wouldn't be so worried but, it became extremely quiet out in the living room. As, a mom, that is all bad. 
I hope everyone enjoys their day today!


1- 6-8oz package of chorizo (found in grocery store near sausage)
6- Large Eggs
Floured Tortillas
Use a large pan or skillet on medium high heat

The first thing you will want to do is add the chorizo to a preheated skillet.
You will need to open the package and squeeze the chorizo out of the sausage tubing. Now be careful because the oil from the chorizo has been know to pop.
Using a spatula, break up chorizo and cook for about 7-9 minutes.
This is when i like to drain the excess grease.
Now its time to add the eggs.
I personally just break the eggs right into the pan and throw the shells straight into the trash. I think clean up is easier this way.
Now turn your heat down to medium.
Scramble in eggs and cook until all is light and fluffy. 
Serve in warmed flour tortilla

Let me know what you think or if you have any variations for this recipe!

* Cell Phone Holder - Mobile Phone Car Mount - Sticky Suction Stand - #1 Best Mount by iGotTech - Smartphone Stand Holds iPhone 5 GPS Samsung Galaxy S3 iPad and More - Best Auto iPhone Holder on Market - Most Wished Cell Phone Accessories
I just tried and tested a new cell phone mount that you use in your car/truck or vehicle.
Its from IGotTech who is a up and coming company and always seems to be introducing cool gizmo's and gadgets that really work.

I received the Sticky Suction Stand for free in exchange for my honest review.
This is basically a cell phone holder that mounts in your vehicle right on to the dashboard so its right there at all times. You can see who is calling you, switch music stations and use speaker phone without having to hold your phone and drive at the same time. Its also ideal for Facetime is you connect before you start driving.
Once mounted, which is super easy, you don't have to worry about it falling off. Trust me, it isn't going anywhere. Best part is that it has a movable arm, so if there is a glare you can turn it and see better.
It fits many different cell phone devices and is ideal in fit for Iphones and Ipods.
At first when I received this product, I thought it was a little cheesy. Then I used it and realized it really does make a difference. I no longer have to worry about dropping my phone between the seats or losing it.
It also works great when using GPS.
This would make a great gift to anyone who is on the go or commutes a lot. I am planning on purchasing one for each of my brothers.

I recently was lucky enough to read and review WRITING DARK STORIES
This is an Ebook that is easily ordered from Amazon

I saw an advertisement this book and I knew I had to read it since I personally love to write and blog and because my daughter who is 12 also loves to write scary stories. I thought this would be an excellent book project that we could both read and work on together. 

Rayne Hall is an amazing author and not only that, she is also very knowledgeable when it comes to writing, storytelling and helping aspiring authors really say what they are feeling and putting that into words.
WRITING DARK STORIES is the 6th installment of her WRITING CRAFT BOOKS.

What I really found interesting about this book is that Hall clearly defines that everyone is different, and the suggestions she has written, are just that, you do not have to use her suggestions, or you can use a combination of them, 
I did a little research on what other reviewers of WRITING DARK STORIES had to say about this book, and a few of them upset me because they stated the book didn't give them good enough ideas or story lines, I don't want to go to into depth on that but I believe it is up to the author to make up their own stories, plots and characters. 
This is a writing technique book. It will help enrich your writing, not too restrict your writing. This book helps bring us out of the box, and add that extra spine tingling touch that us as writers want our readers to feel. After all, this is why we read and write dark stories isn't it?
I would like to first state that this is written in British English and I am a Californian who has never traveled overseas and I could follow it just fine!

I really could go on and on about the subject matter that Hall has shared in this book, but then you wouldn't need to purchase it, so instead I am just going to touch on some of our favorite and not so favorite parts.
My daughter and I both agreed one of our favorite chapters was Chapter 1. It is titled:
It really helps started our creative process flowing and Hall really explains in it a way that easy for a teen to understand but also in depth enough for an experienced author.
At the end of every chapter Hall as an assignment for you to partake in, I was not expecting that as I have never read any of her other books, but we found it very helpful and encouraging.

My daughter and I also found Chapter 3 extremely interesting as there is a section titled PROMPTS that gives you some great coping skills for and tips for dealing with writers block.

Hall gives new meaning to horror genres as she covers topics like horror, splatter plunk, extreme horror, dystopian, and many more, Its like having your own dark glossary but with a fresh twist.
Chapter 6 is one I personally enjoyed as well as it teaches you how to write and acknowledge different characters point of view.

Chapter 8 & 9 were awesome and my daughters ultimate favorites as she could really relate.
In these chapters, Hall explains how to creatively write and give that anxiety type feel and also how to get visceral. Excellent advice!

I do have to admit that some of the ending how to chapters do feel a little redundant at times, but I do understand that Hall is trying to be as informative as possible.

Chapter 13, 
This has some very good advice and great points. The ending is supposed to be the climax and leave you wanting more.
I know of quite a few popular authors who could use this chapter. There has been so many times when I have been reading a good book and the ending is just a mess. it can ruin the whole book. Hall explains how not to do this.

WRITING DARK STORIES also help you understand your readers more and in the very end Hall also gives you examples of some of her copy written stories that when you read, you can now relate to what you have read and learned in WRITING DARK STORIES.

In closing I want to say that if you are an author or thinking of becoming an author of dark stories you may want to seriously considering purchasing this ebook. This is a book that will remain on our Kindle and be used throughout our writing career.

Author Rayne Hall's kitty Sulu.  Hall rescued Sulu from the shelter.

It's a firming cellulite cream for cellulite reduction and firmer, toned skin.

Yep, you heard me right! Bella Naturals sent me a full sized jar of Firming Cellulite Cream to try for free in exchange for my honest opinion an review.
At first I didn't know if I should be honored or embarrassed, but I thought "Hey, what the heck? We all need a little help looking our best".
So I got this 4oz jar of Firming cellulite Cream that is supposed to reduce cellulite and basically tighten your skin for a firmer toned skin.

This is how the cream looks inside

After opening the jar I quickly noticed a nice refreshing menthol scent. This is a nice change from the citrus scented lotions I usually use. Its not too thick of a cream but not too watery either.
You can apply it up too two times a day on those areas that need attention. Massage into skin until absorbed. I decided to use it on my upper arms. it does absorb quickly and you will probably want to wash your hands afterwards.
I have been using Naturalico Firming Cellulite Cream 2x daily for about 7 days so far and i have noticed a small difference but not an extreme difference. My skin feels a little firmer, I would say this could be used as more of a prevention to cellulite then rather as a cure to cellulite.

I do not want to lie to my readers but I do not think I would purchase this cream.
I am curious to know if anyone else has ever used this product an what do you think about it?

Picture or Pure Raspberry Ketones as delivered

So, you probably of heard by now of this new pill going around called Pure Raspberry Ketones.
It is supposed to be a proven fat burner and appetite controller. It is professionally formulated utilizing the purest quality of ketones.
Well the good people at Summit Nutrition's sent me a free bottle to try out and share my honest review with you guys.
I admit I am a bit of a skeptic when it comes to pills, but i checked with my doctor and she said it was ok .

This is what the actual pills look like

I received the bottle of pills in the mail and I was a little disappointed that they came by themselves. No instruction booklet or anything else. I was also disappointed that they didn't have a childproof cap. My son who is 6 said they look like a certain popular candy, so parents be sure to keep these out of reach of children, especially because they are big, red, shiny and have a nice fruity scent.

Ok, now that I got the only negatives out of the way, I used as directed by taking 1 capsule 2x daily, 30 minutes before meals with 6oz of water. Instructions were very clear.
After taking my pill 30 mins before lunch, by the time lunchtime came around I actually ate very light, same with dinner. I did feel very energized and I really believe they are starting to work. I drank several glasses of water these past few days along with my Raspberry Ketones and I can say I like them. I can feel the difference and they don't make me shaky like with other diet pills.

As with any diet, you should always drink water and exercise.
I will continue to take these until the bottle which comes with 120 count is empty and then I may purchase some more if I see a big enough difference, and it looks as if that is an actual possibility.

Chances are if you have children, your children watch Nickelodeon, and if they do watch Nickelodeon then chances are that you have already heard of Nickelodeons annual Worldwide Day Of Play!
Nickelodeon has taken it upon themselves today, September 20th, 2014 to go on a black out from 12-3:00Pm to help get kids more active and encourage children to play outside!
Well hats off to Nickelodeon for this!
I personally think that it is awesome!
Many different agencies are also taking part like museums and parks. Check your area or local paper!
Unfortunately nothing special was popping off in my area, but my kids were super excited to participate in WorldWide Day Of Play, especially since last year it was raining.
Well, now what do do after you drop the tv, phones, video games, tablets, etc..?
As you know we live in California and its still about 95 degrees today so we decided to go bowling!
It was actually a really good deal. Two children plus shoe rental was only 12.50. A & A had alot of fun. My teenage daughter didn't join us because, well she is a teen and everything I do is stupid. Haha!
After Bowling, We decided to go to the park for a few hours. We decided to walk and enjoy the great outdoors and eachothers company.
Today was a really great day with the kids and I'm really proud of Nickelodeon for helping our kids get active. I really wish all of the television stations would get involved and help promote Worldwide Day of Play!
However, when it really comes down to it it is us, the parents who need to get in the habit of playing outside more with our kids!
I have now decided it is time, more then once a year to get out and have fun!
Get out, get fresh air!
Let's make some memories!

I recently got to try and test a really cool product for free in exchange for my honest review and opinion.

Ok, so as most as you know I live in the valley in California. The area I live in is famous for harvesting tomatoes which brings tons of flies to my little city. So, when I had a chance to review Magnetic Screen Door I jumped at the chance, especially when their motto is "BUGS-NOT-INVITED"
This screen is unlike other doors in the way that it will fit on basically any door. it is magnetic and very easy to put up. You can do it in just a few minutes. There is even a YouTube tutorial:

I'm only 5'1 so I had my brother install it for me because he is much taller then I am.
We installed it onto the door frame of our side garage door because that's where we do our laundry and the garage gets very hot but if we leave the door open, we get infested with flies or mosquitoes.
If you need a screen on your front or back door this will work brilliantly. It is made of the highest quality durable mesh: 36x83.
There is no gaps around the door frame , it has a full velcro closure.
Tight Magnetic Seal
26 Concealed Magnetic Construction
This screen is also great for us with fur babies as the middle of the screen divides and pets or humans can just walk through (no hands) and then it seals itself back up!
It is pretty cool, kind of reminds me of spaceage :)
If you need a modern tough durable screen door, then check this out .Can be purchased from Amazon here:

Do you love to go to sporting events, games, clubs but hate to pay the big prices on the small cocktail drinks served to you?
Well, now you don't have to worry about shelling out those hard earned dollars!

I saw an ad for Cocktails On The Go & I had to try them so Seven Lights Investments LLC sent me a free pack to try in exchange for my honest review and opinion.
I was so super stoked to get these and try them because I as most of you know, I like to have a good time but I hate to pay those hefty fees. I mean come on, $12 for a small beer at a game? I don't have those funds all the time. I have 3 kids and bills I got to take care of, but I don't want to miss out!

So I got my Cocktails On The Go ! The picture above is what you get. You get 2 16oz plastic packets and 1 32oz packet. You also get 2 funnels included to help fill up your packet with your favorite cocktails. They also include 3 safety caps for each packet so you do not have to worry about unexpected leaks!
Ok, so basically the idea is to fill these with your favorite drinks (Non Carbonated) and take them along on your outings. The possibilities are really endless. They can fit in your waistline, jacket pocket or even suitcase or purse.
Want to know something really cool, you can actually pass through metal detectors, and security wands without being detected. You can easily take them to games, night clubs, casinos, cruises, theme parks, school, work or even on airplanes! 
You can freeze them and they are easily washed by hand.
I do recommend you thoroughly read and follow the directions, I did and I had no problems, except that my brother saw them and stole one of the packets!
I definitely put Cocktails On The Go on my personal lift of GETTA'S GOT TO HAVE ITS.
These also make great gifts!
Check them out on Amazon, here is the link:


Also, if you order now and enter this promotional code during check out, you will save 10%
7CTHWW6N (share this 10% off code anywhere you like - expires October 31st, 2014.)

One more thing I would like to add is that this company is very personable, after I received my order, they sent me follow up messages and even a recipe to make and carry in my Cocktails On The Go. That doesn't happen often. So what would you do if you had Cocktails On The Go?

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


I received a full sizes Aveda Natrually Straght from She Speaks and Aveda in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

I used the product for 5 days and followed the directions aand I would like to say I LOVE IT! This stuff works great. the key is to follow the exact instructions and I promise you , you will have wonderful results like I did too.

My hair is dry, very frizzy and curly. I hate my hair and have tried so many products to tame it and try to look better. Aveda works. it has a light fresh, almost lemony scent and I really like it.
I don't even have to spend that much time straightening my hair anymore. its like my hair has been trained, its wonderful. 

I would recommend Aveda to busy ladies like myself with uncontrollable, frizzy curly hair and who want to look great without a lot of fuss.
It retails for about $26 dollars, which is a little pricey, but I would pay for the stress it has reduced in my life.

We will never forget....

September 11, 2001.
Do you remember where you were? I do. I was asleep and pregnant with my second daughter. I remember my phone was ringing non stop and I got mad because I still had 15 minutes to sleep before I had to get up for work. Let me remind you, I live in California so it was still fairly early.

I answered the phone to one of my girlfriends telling me to hurry and turn on the tv. I was still angry for being woke, but I turned it on.
It took me a few minutes of watching it to realize what was going on. The news kept showing the plane hitting the tower over and over again then I realized the phone was still in my hand.

I didn't say anything to my friend on the phone, I didn't have too.

I was only 23 at the time, I didn't know much, but I knew I was terrified. I called my boss and left her a voicemail telling her I wasn't coming in that day. I stared at the tv another 15 minutes before I called my daughters school letting them know, she wouldn't be going in either.

I called my mom. She felt the same way. We were scared, nervous and in shock. We live only 25 miles from The States Capital and that just seemed too close. Right then I just wanted to live way out in the country, away from anything and anyone that could hurt me or my family.

I think the whole nation, and parts of the world were in pain and disbelief. Moms, Dads, husbands, wives, sisters, brothers, we were all hurting. Pain and anger for those that were lost, and fear that there was more tradgedy to come.
The unknown.
Many prayers were said that day.

I will not go into the details, the specifics, politics, or my very own personal beliefs about 9/11. This isn't the time or the place. This isn't what this post is about.

This is about family and healing.

So please, everyone.. Hug your babies an extra time today, Take a minute to call a friend or family member, keep today simple and don't sweat the small stuff. Say a prayer for those who are hurting and lost, and pray that they find peace in their hearts.

Today is a new day, but we will never ever forget. Not a single one of us Americans.

One of my favorite shows is Sons of Anarchy. Its on Tuesday nights at 10pm on FX. If you haven't seen it yet, let me tell you, it contains love, lust, loyalty, brotherhood, betrayal, a lot of violence and every now and then you can find some dark humor.

Last night was SOAs season 7 premier. It seems like I waited a whole year for this after watching the season 6 finale which left most people speechless. I dont want to give away any spoilers so I'm going to just touch on a couple things from last nights premier. Then I'm going to tell you how to get autographed pictures of Katey Sagal and Kurt Sutter.

  • Was it just me, or did the opening credits seem much shorter? Is the cast really that small?
  • Marilyn Manson appeared in the beginning of the show. I must say he looks much different with out all that make up on his face. He still creeps me out though.
  • Malcolm Jamal Warner also appears in the season premiere. I'm glad to see him working and hope he continues in the show.
  • Whoa! What is going on with Juice! I can't believe they showed his butt. He does have a nice butt! -played by Theo Rossi
  • Unser, sweet Unser (played by Dayton Callie) still has that sweet caring heart and grandfatherly feel to him, but does he really fit in with the Sons anymore or is he just too good a person for this drama?
  • Gemma is so beautiful (played by Katey Sagal), she is The Queen, but I am really starting to hate her even more after last nights episode, but Katey is such an amazing actress that I actually got chills!
  • Happy is my all time favorite son. Played by David LaBrava. I would marry him in a heartbeat! He was looking pretty hot last night! I love me some Happy!
  • The show ended playing a new version of the song BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY. I felt it tied everything together nicely.
  • The show was a little over 90 minutes long, but the first hour seemed to be filled with so many commercials.
  • However, one commercial was an extended trailer for THE DROP, with the late actor James Gandolfini. It looks good!
Ok, so here is how you can get an autographed picture of Kurt Sutter or Katey Sagal. All you have to do is email:
Let them know if you want Kateys or Kurts autographed picture or even both. Be sure to give them your name and address. That's It!
It took me about 4 months to get these pictures in this post. Well worth the wait!

So do you watch SOA? Who is your favorite character? What did you think of last nights show. I would love to continue this discussion.

Have you ever heard of GLAMGLOW?
Well, if you haven't let me tell you. Its a new skin care line such as skin creams, mud masks and used at home to give yourself spa like facials. It is rumored that some Hollywood stars even use GLAMGLOW.

Today I'm going to share my review of GLAMGLOW POWERMUD DUAL CLEANSE TREATMENT. This is one of GLAMGLOW'S newest products.

GLAMGLOW POWERMUD is a dual cleanse treatment which means its a mud mask and a cleanser. It cleanses, nourishes, detoxs, and purifies. It uses the power of oil and the power of mud to create a multi-sensory experience, for a super gentle and deep cleaning and removal of toxin
s and impurities.

How do you use it?
You can use it once or twice a week. You apply a thin layer of GLAMGLOW POWERMUD to your face and leave it on for 5-10 mins. When time is up, use warm water and your mud mask turns in to a cleansing oil treatment. Rinse face and pat dry. Done!

Ok, so here is my review.
First of all I love the packaging designs that GLAMGLOW uses. They are colorful and in a cool shape but the print is very very small. You almost have to use a magnifying glass.
The POWERMUD has a very light fresh scent. It is very thin in consistency and after you apply it, you can hardly even feel it. Unlike other mud masks it doesn't get hard and tight.
I waited about 8 mins before I rinsed with warm water and it turned into a very nice lather. I patted my face dry and looked in the mirror. I will admit that my skin looked a little more radiant and it felt a lot softer and clean.
Now I should of mentioned before that I have really oily skin. I usually wake up in the morning and my face is so shiny and oily. Yes, I know its gross.
However, when I woke up the following morning, my face was not oily it all. My skin still looked like it did before I went to bed. I lived the results.Having oily skin is really hard to deal with and it can also be embarrassing. My skin remained oil free for about 4 days. It wasn't dry either. So I was pretty happy. Actually I was really happy. The whole process only takes about 10 minutes twice a week. Pretty great results.

So I do recommend GLAMGLOW POWERMUD to those of you that have oily skin. You can purchase it at Sephora online or in person. The jar I received was 1.7 oz and it will last a while. GLAMGLOW POWERMUD retails for about $69.00.

I was not paid to write this review, but I did receive GLAMGLOW POWERMUD to try for free in exchange for my honest review and opinion.

So as most of you know, I am a member of Smiley360. If you don't know what Smiley360 is, let me tell you.
Its this awesome website where you get to try things for FREE! Yes, I said for Free. What's the catch? Well there really is a couple things you need to do, like when you sign up, you got to fill out a few pages about yourself, age, race, kids, you know the basic demographics.
If you get selected to try something for free, then its called a MISSION.
They usually mail you the item, sometimes along with coupons to share with friends. You try the item, and basically you share links re the item on Facebook, Twitter and in person. You also have to report about at least 10 people you talk to about the item. Very easy stuff. There is also a place in the Smiley360 system to write a review.
If you like to try things and really share honest feedback, check it out.
Are you a member of Smiley360 already? What's your opinion?


I dont usually believe all the hype when it comes to make up and miracle creams. I guess you could say I'm kind of a skeptic. Well I recently tried L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother. I love love love it. I'm 36 & a mom of 3. I have my good days and my bad days, but lets face it, moms need help.
I had noticed I had started to look tired, getting bags and the dark circles, sagging skin around my eyes. So I decided to try this. I did not buy this, I got it for free in exchange for my honest review, but here where I live its 25.99 + tax. Kind of pricey for a mom on a budget, but I needed help.
So this morning, I washed my face with a moisturizing cleanser and patted dry.
Went into the mirror and opened up my package. Its cool it comes in a red tube. The side that the miracle blur cream comes out has a little metal ball type thing. I squeezed out just a tiny bit and rubbed it into my skin with the metal ball thing.
Believe it or not, I saw instant results. I automatically looked less tired, I looked younger. No joke. Totally serious. I looked d good! And today is only the first day. In 4 weeks even more magic is supposed to happen like reduced crows feet and lines. I plan to update this review in 4 weeks to let you know how it went.
So in a nutshell, it is a miracle blur. Man, I wish I could take a bath in this stuff. I highly recommend it.

So as I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed, one of my friends had shared this post.

Most of you know, I am a firm believer in Karma, You reap what You Sow, type stuff. Even though this article isn't 100% technological lab stuff, it really is worth a read.

Happy September!!

Hi Everyone!
Well can you believe its September already. Are you ready for fall yet?
So many things happening! If you have kids then how is back to school going for you? Well as most of you know, I have 3 kids. That means three different breakfasts, three different lunches and three different schools! I'm ready for a nap by 9:30 AM!
I have to admit I still cry on the first day of school. No, not out of happiness, but I really do miss my kids that first day. There is something about seeing them in the new school clothes and their excited yet nervous facial expressions. I remember being that age. I guess you can say it brings back memories, kind of a nostalgic feeling.
So are you ready for fall yet?
Fall is actually one of my most favorite seasons. Big sweaters, boots, apple cider, Halloween & Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
I'm not even going to mention Christmas but you know its coming, especially if you have been to any big box stores recently.
So, yes in a nutshell Fall is awesome and I can't wait for it to get here! Especially for us Californians who are really hoping for rain and cooler weather.
I am going to have alot of different things going on in the next few weeks that I can't wait to share with everyone. There is going to be alot of reviews, recipes and money saving tips, and of course we are going to be going over some newer items that are coming out that could work for Christmas presents! Time to think "out of the box".
I'm really excited to share all these new ideas and product reviews with you guys. Its going to be great!
