{Review} JuveRest: The Sleep Wrinkle Pillow

Disclosure: Product was sent for review purposes. Do you sleep on your stomach or on your side?  You may want to reconsider how you sleep after I tell you that you may be causing your own face wrinkles because of the way you sleep. It's true! Many people don't realize there are two main types of wrinkles on their face.  There's Expression Wrinkles and you get these from smiling, squinting  or frowning (think crow's feet and smile lines).  Sleep Wrinkles are different and are caused by … [Read more...]

Disney’s Tinker Bell And The Great Fairy Rescue | Review & $10 Coupon

A brand new Disney movie is making it's debut on DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday September 21st. It's called Tinker Bell and The Great Fairy Rescue.

Spoiler alert: My favorite part was when the father found out the real truth and stopped doubting Lizzy.  That father and daughter moment made me tear up … [Read more...]

Tips On Keeping Your Mascara On Your Lashes

I don't normally blog about beauty because there are tons of beauty blogs out in the blogosphere that I frequent and I learn from them but I think I should at least write posts about things that I do that makes my "beauty time" easier, right? I've been using mascara since I had my son. I was never really into eye makeup before then, just a little eye liner. I was once told that adding mascara to your lashes will make your eyes stand out and they were definitely right.  I love mascara but … [Read more...]

Sun Products Introduces The New All Oxi-Active Laundry Detergent in NYC

Letting my kids get dirty is something I fail at doing.  I have 3 kids and I can't help but cringe when I see them get dirty when they play outside. I think about the stains that will be on their nice clothes and how hard I have to scrub to try to remove them. This past Tuesday, my daughter and I were invited to an event in New York City to check out Sun Product's newest laundry detergent called All Oxi-Active laundry detergent.  It is a 2-in-1 detergent that has an advanced cleaning power … [Read more...]

Caress Evenly Gorgeous Bodywash & Beauty Bar | Review & Giveaway

In the Winter, the weather can wreck havoc on your skin. The dry air in your home and the cold air outside really dries out the skin. That is why we need to use extra moisturizers to keep our skin soft and supple. It also helps if we use the right cleanser for our skin. For me, the right cleanser means a soap that smells great, leaves my skin soft and of course, one that cleans well too.  If a cleanser has exfoliators in the product, it's an added bonus because it sloughs away the nasty … [Read more...]

Truvia | Review

I received a box of Truvia from our friends over at iVillage.com a few months ago.  The reason why they sent it to me was because I was a community leader at one of their message boards a few months ago called Latina Beauty.  It was a great board but members were becoming really busy with their families and their life and it became a "ghost town", so I resigned.   Most of the members I know there are still in contact with me because we stayed friends so it wasn't a complete lost. Ok, back to … [Read more...]

If you don’t like it, say something!

Have you ever bought something because of a life changing decision (like losing weight) or just to try it out because you had a coupon or maybe even just because? Well, that happened to me.  After going to the EA Sports Active event in NYC, I decided to make some changes to my diet and also add a workout regimen to tone up for the Summer. So I went and bought Hellmann's "light" Mayonnaise, among other things like fruits and veggies.  As soon as I opened up the jar, I could tell by the … [Read more...]

I’m just sayin…

Would you pay $47.00 for a potato masher??  I know I wouldn't.  At Cooking.com, you can buy this masher for that price. It's a nice stainless steel potato masher but I don't think it's worth almost $50. This one is less then $20 and it looks very similar to the $50 masher. I won't pay more than $10 for a masher.  As a matter of fact, the masher I do have at home was about $5 and I've had it for years.  It is similar to the picture above but the handle is made out of wood. So, do you … [Read more...]
