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.

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!!

Review: Dermagist skin tone correcting system

dermagist

I am getting older and I hate to say it, but my skin isn’t as youthful looking as it once was. I have gotten sun spots and all kinds of blemishes on my face. My skin tone has become uneven and what person likes having uneven skin tone? I try and keep trying all kind of products to keep my skin looking good but I don’t always get the result I want.
I was given the opportunity to try out some skin care products and I chose the Dermagist skin tone correcting system. I chose the skin correcting system because I wanted to get rid of the blemishes and dark spots on my face. The Dermagist skin tone correcting system is a two-part system that targets spots, discoloration and dull, uneven skin tone. Step one accelerates the process by deeply exfoliating dead, dull skin cells. Step two penetrates to help brighten, and even the tone of the skin.

I tried it out for close to a month and I could see some of the freckles I had fading away. My face seems brighter and my skin tone is more even. Having uneven skin tone bothered me even more than the freckles did. You can call me a little vain if you want, but I want to make sure my face looks as youthful as possible for as long as possible. If you don’t have a skin tone problem but want a younger looking face or are just looking for face products I would check out reviews and see what others have to say about the skin products you are thinking of buying. I know it helped me out to make the decision of what kind of face product I wanted or needed to use on my face. I am quite happy with the results I got from using the Dermagist skin tone correcting system and I am so glad I looked at the reviews before making my decision.

Review: Cleopatra’s choice raw shea butter #adovia

Cleopatra choice

One of my daughters suffers from eczema and every now and then has outbreaks where she cant stop the itching and scratching. I tend to have dry skin and am constantly putting on different kinds of moisturizing lotion to keep my skin soft. Some lotions work better than others but I have to constantly make sure that I am putting some on.

I recently had the opportunity to try out Cleopatra’s choice raw shea butter and when I found out that Raw Shea Butter has been proven to provide natural relief from symptoms of Very Dry Skin, Psoriasis Dryness and Eczema I was all for it . This shea butter is 100% Natural and Organic Pure Shea Butter – Made with Hand Selected Finest Nuts of the Shea Tree in Ghana. The shea butter came in a tub with a resealable lid, which is a great idea since you will have plenty to use. Although it looks thick and waxy ,after putting some in my hand and rubbing it together it became soft and I was able to easily rub it on my arms and legs. I also used some as lip balm and it kept me moisturized all day.

I put some on my daughter the day her eczema was acting up and I didn’t see her scratching like she normally does. I saw her eczema clearing up instead of the usual raw skin she has for days when the cream I put on her doesn’t work. Although my daughter doesn’t like that this shea butter doesn’t have a sweet smell to it, I find it perfect for her because it helps out her skin a lot. I like that I can put a little bit of essential oil and give it a vanilla smell and it is great for me to use all day. This shea butter is great to mix with any scent you want if you don’t like the slightly nutty woodsy scent it naturally has.

I am so glad to have had the opportunity to try out Cleopatra’s choice raw shea butter.

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.
