One thing I am very thankful for…

I have been thinking of thanksgiving a lot lately and One thing I am thankful for is the great friends I have made online. Some of these people make me smile everyday. There are days when I feel sad and depressed and just reading about how their day is going or them messaging me puts a smile on my face. I love reading about one of them getting a new electric guitar and clicking on the site the site they got it from. I also love seeing pictures of my friends little baby.

I love seeing pictures of others and their happy moments which in turn make me feel happy for them. I sometimes think how lucky I am to have those people cross my path and become friends with me. Even though they might not be blood family they are my family. They are the family I chose to have and sometimes they are even closer to me than those that are supposed to be. So one thing I am very thankful for is the friendship I have made with all the online friends I have.





Are you prepared for Thanksgiving ?

I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is almost here. I have been trying to do all my gift shopping early in the year but that is obviously not happening. We have been a little tight on money this year and that has me a little bit stressed. I know I have taught my kids that Christmas is not all about the gifts but they are kids and of course they want nice gifts.

I am really hoping that are bills go down now that we don’t have to run the A/C. I am also hoping that some more freelance work comes along because we sure need it right now. How is your Christmas shopping going ? Have you gotten all the things you need? Oh and I forgot to say that we will be having family over this year so my house is going to be a full house!! Eeek I hope everything goes great and we don’t end up with family fights and disagreements and certainly no food fights.





Are you all good to go with the gifts?

Having a musical child can only mean one thing… There is always music or singing going on in my house. musiciansfriend.com has really become the site where my kid goes to look for any musical instrument or microphone that tickles her fancy. I am just glad that when it comes to gift buying all I have to do is visit musiciansfriend to find a gift for her.

My other kids are not as easy as my daughter is. I have to struggle to find the perfect gift for them. I have to get the Christmas lists going for them if I want to have their gifts ready by our Christmas dinner. we have a tradition of opening one gift Christmas eve and the rest on Christmas day. Do you have any traditions? Are you already set with the gifts ?

Mom’s empower yourself and protect your children with Mace® Brand

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with MACE BRAND and Crossroads Media Hub. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

mace_red-186-300x96

Gone are the days when you could leave your house and have the windows open and the door unlocked. Gone are the days where you didn’t have to watch your back and not have to worry about being mugged or caused harm. Now I have to make sure I have protection for my kids and myself if I plan on leaving my house after dark. I don’t always have a male to accompany us everywhere we go, so as a woman I want to make sure I empower myself to be able to protect my children. I have to make sure that in case of an emergency, I have time to get my kids out of dangerous situations.

I like the Mace® Brand items because they are easy to use and I can easily carry them in my purse. I have a daughter who will be getting ready to go to college soon and I need her to feel safe to walk from class to class and to her dorm room. The Pepper Guard Personal model is a great size for my daughter to carry around and the adjustable hand strap is perfect for her to hang on to the pepper spray. I find the personal pepper guard easy to use so I know it will be easy for her to use as well.

When I go walking at night with my kids, I prefer to carry the Mace pepper gun. The Mace Pepper gun can shoot up to 20 feet away and that is perfect for us to be able to hit our target and make a run for it. The mace pepper gun does enough damage to deter any attacker without causing serious life threating injuries. The invisible dye in the oc pepper will help police identify the attacker which we will definitely want off the streets.

Oh and let me not forget to tell you guys about the recent attacks that have been going on in my neighborhood. It seems that we have been having lots of people bitten or attacked by dogs lately. I am a big believer in everyone should have their dogs on a leash or at least make sure that their dog has no way of getting out of their yard. If I am one of those unlucky people to encounter a dog ready to attack I am well prepared to use my Mace K-9 deterrent. I have gotten so afraid to check the mail ever since I heard about one of the neighbors getting bit by some dog that was wandering the streets close to our house. While she was lucky that someone came to her rescue right away and was able to get the dog off of her, hearing that traumatic story had me looking for and taking safety measures for my family and myself.

Don’t be afraid to prepare yourself for any situation. Times have changed and women have the right to empower themselves take control of any situation. Be prepared and walk confidently knowing that you have the tools in your pocket or purse to keep your family safe. Take a look at the MACE website for the MACE product that works best for you. If you are a girly girl like me you will love the products that MACE carries in pink ;) Go take a look and tell me which product would work best for you. Tell me what do you do to make sure your family and you stay safe.

Product Review : EU Natural Biotin Capsules for Hair , Skin & Nails

Biotin Pills

Ever since I gave birth to my twins, I noticed that my usual thick hair started thinning and I started losing more and more hair as time went by. I of course went out and bought expensive shampoos that promised to heal my hair and get it back to its thick status. I feel like I just sent my money down the drain because my hair still kept falling out. I had read that Biotin pills helped with hair growth and nail growth and decided to give them a try.

As a blogger I sometimes have the opportunity to try out some products and just my luck I was able to check out EU Natural products. Like I said Lucky for me because EU Natural made some Biotin pills that I wanted to try out. Not only were the EU Natural Biotin Pills easy to order from Amazon, they came quickly too. These Biotin pills are 100% Vegetarian Capsules Free of Gluten, Wheat, and Dairy with Zero Fillers, Zero Binders, and Zero Artificial Ingredients which to some people like me makes them feel better about what they are putting into their body. Now I am a person who also doesn’t like to take big pills and these pills come in a little capsule so I had no problem taking them. I am so glad they were not some gigantic looking pills.

Biotin capsule

I started using this Biotin pills about 4 weeks ago and I noticed that my hair was falling out less and less. I can’t say yet how much hair growth I have had, as it is to early to tell but I definitely see a difference when it comes to my hair loss. My nails have started to grow longer than they had before and I have noticed that they are more healthier and don’t break as easily. After I had my twins my hair went from thick to very thin and brittle and of course like I said my hair was falling out like crazy. I tried all kinds of shampoos and conditioner promoting healthy hair and hair growth but none gave me any notable changes like these Biotin pills did. I have hardly had any hair loss and it is not like it was four weeks ago where it would come out a lot.

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.





Book Review : Working Girl By A.E.Woodward

Working Girl Book Cover Working Girl

Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
September 22,2014
E-book, paperback
249

Synopsis
Life As I Know It:
Booze
Drugs
Gambling
Easy Women
Such was my life in fabulous Las Vegas. But what do you expect when you’re the daughter of a prostitute. This is not the life I want for myself, and I have a plan.

Life As I Want It:
Go to college.
Get my degree.
Get as far from Vegas as possible.

But life has other plans. Plans that include him. Life isn’t always sunshine and roses and even the best laid plans change.

This is my story. The story of a girl who thought she had it all figured out until life threw her a curve ball. My name is Presley and I refuse to be just another Working Girl.

My Review: When I started reading Working Girl, I said to myself that I was not going to get all caught up and worked up reading this book. I told myself that this time I would remain calm and not have a repeat of the reactions and sentiments that I did last time while reading A. E. Woodward’s other book Kismet. Well let me tell you folks that I failed miserably.

I could not help but get caught up in Pressely’s world. I felt sadness and desperation. I felt anxious but hopeful and the roller coaster of emotions went through me once again. The way A.E. Woodward writes, makes you feel it right to the bone. She doesn’t sugarcoat anything and when you think certain things can’t be possible or you feel hopeful…BAM she throws a curveball or two that you never saw Coming!!!!

Sure you get the feeling of butterflies when you read about Pressley and how she likes this boy named Emerson. You feel even better when Emerson feels something for Pressley too. Everything seems like despite circumstances things can be different that what seems destined to be … But can it really? Is Love enough to change the way you grew up ?

I am thoroughly impressed and mesmerized by A.E.Woodward. She has become one of my favorite authors and whose books I would buy without thinking twice. I know she will deliver the feeling of rainbows and butterflies and skittles while swiftly kicking me in the gut when I least expect it!! If you ever want a book that will reach out and touch you and leave you with quite an impression get A.E. Woodward’s books. Start off With Working Girl and when you feel brave enough pick up Kismet!! Trust me you will never be the same after reading A.E. Woodward’s books!!
