Mmmmm, I just love the way Dial's Coconut Water / Refreshing Mango Body Wash smells. It actually makes me want to eat a mango!
Since the dawn…

I have been using whitening toothpastes since I was a teen. I know the types of food eaten can result in yellow, cream color teeth and I like coffee but I don't drink it often enough for it to have an affect (at least I don't think it should). I've tried whitening strips, gels, mouth wash, some…Continue

A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown. There are a few others in their beginning stages. It only took about 5 years for some of her plants to start bearing fruit and I was thinking I should've started growing plants as soon as we bought our house. By now I would have…Continue

The rice comes in two forms. You can choose the packet or the box. The packet takes only 90 seconds to cook, but the boxed rice takes about 45 minutes to make. From a list of options, I decided to try the 'Seven Grain Shrimp Bowl' recipe, except with the Indian Rice Blend and omitting the ingredients my family would not want, red peppers for example. This way, dinner would be ready quickly!…

Today my son came into my room with this really strange disk thingy in one hand and a rectangular thingamajig in the other. At first I was so ready to yell at him, wondering why he's walking around the house with a smoke detector but as he got closer I realized it wasn't a smoke detector. The condition of it made it look like it could've been some type of artifact used by our grandparents, but it wasn't. At first, I myself…Continue

The image on the right (or at least something similar) has been circulating the web for a while now. Initially I thought it was just another silly share going around, but today as it was posted I decided to click the link included with the post. It mentioned something called Common Core Math Standards and apparently it's already "standard" in some schools. This makes me nervous!…Continue

I was watching a re-run of Roseanne where David was hired to play "Hans the Hare" for a theme park. She was talking about the expensive cost to get into the theme park just to see some rabbits and it reminded me a lot of the expensive cost to see a mouse.
During the episode, the price was about $30-something, so that surprised me. I'm thinking,…Continue

I finally got around to trying the Adovia Purifying Mud Mask, with Pure Dead Sea Mud, Aloe Vera and Vitamin C. I haven't used a face mask product since I was a pre teen copying my mom one day. I was excited, especially because it has Pure Dead Sea Mud, which is known to provide great results.
This product is for all skin types, so I wasn't really…

I finally made my way over to Lowes today so I could buy the things necessary to try the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed idea I saw on Pinterest.
I wanted two beds, so I intended to buy 20 cement blocks, but I underestimated how heavy they were and how much space it would take up in the car. After grocery shopping, and making a quick trip to ToysRUs to pick up a birthday gift, space was limited. So, I bought:
6 bags of Top Soil
3 bags of Potting…

I have something to confess. My months of gardening went to waste a long while ago, because I saw a snake and lizards that made me feel as if my backyard was their own, not mine, lol. Usually I'm not afraid of garden snakes, but when I'm in the backyard alone a garden snake starts to look like an anaconda. Eek! With all the different types of garden / garter snakes there are, I can't tell when a poisonous snake is nearby. So to…Continue

The Perfective Ceuticals Divine Age Guardian Cream is an anti-aging cream, so I wasn't planning on using it. I don't have any wrinkles, so I never thought someone in their early 30's would have use for such a product. My intentions were to have my grand mother try it, but we're in different states and it would be too much of a hassle, so I did a little research. I checked the Internet to find out at what age people should start…Continue

Have I mentioned previously how much I love Pinterest? I went on there to create a board for Pirate theme goodies just so I can have an easy place to keep track of things I found. After searching their site for additional ideas, I came across much better ideas than I originally had. Things I can do myself, which means I can save money (yay)!

I made the Eggnog Matcha the same way I made the Caramel Matchaccino. As soon as I opened the packet, the smell of eggnog was noticeable. It smelled great.
Note: it has a tear area, but don't use it.…

I was given the opportunity to try two products from RedLeafTea.com. The Caramel Matchaccino and the Naturally flavored Eggnog Matcha. I've never heard of either products, but I was excited to try them. Here's my thoughts in the Caramel Matchaccino.
First things first, I had no idea what…

Do you have family traditions during the Holidays? I remember when I was a child, every Christmas we'd get new pajamas. The night before Christmas we would wear our new PJs and I couldn't wait to be able to open the presents in the morning. I loved waking up to Christmas music and Christmas breakfast! I even looked forward to those traditions as a teen.…

Remember last year when I posted a review about iCaughtSanta.com? In case you have no idea what I'm referring to, click to read about my iCaughtSanta.com experience. It's a program where you simply take a photo somewhere in your home, then choose between Santa Clauses or even reindeers and add them to your photo. The software makes it look like you've caught Santa in action...for real! This couldn't be any easier. It makes a…Continue

Well, that's not all I want of course, but after months or probably years of replacing the crappy can openers I have bought I figured I'll vent my frustrations on my blog!
You know how you kind of splurge on household goods when you buy your first house or apartment? Well, that's what we did. We spent $30 on an electric can opener which was pretty…

For a few days, I had the FAGE coupons sitting in my purse. I even forgot to buy it while on a grocery shopping trip so I decided to stop and pick some up while I was on my way home. In the aisle, there were two ladies looking in the cottage cheese and yogurts area. I stood next to them trying to find the FAGE cups so I could make the trip a quick one, but I needed help because I could not find them among the countless cups of…Continue
