Happy Halloween

Well today has been a bust for me. My kid's are too old for Halloween, they are all actually at work. The Husband and I are watching tv and I am entering sweepstakes that end tonight. I really miss the days when we had small kids and could take them trick or treating, hanging out with other families. I used to love the cool weather and seeing the kids all happy about getting some candy!! I felt like a begger but it is GREAT.
Carving pumpkins are cool but the offsrping does not want to do that anymore either.
I just do not know where the time has gone.
We moved 3 years ago and since then we have not had one single trick or treater even though we live in a busy neighborhood.
We live at the end and no one wants to come down that far. I am super sad about today.
Here is this years pumpkin in the dark.. it looks almost invisible, just like I feel down here at the end of the neighborhood!!
Man, I just need some grand babies!!! 
No grand babies yet!!!
I hope that you all have an amazing Halloween!!!
Stay warm and Safe

Vitamin C Facial Toner

My skin is so sensitive and I do not spend a lot of time in the sunlight. But I still have dry skin especially on my face and it is not as fresh looking as I wanted it to be.
I had the opportunity to try this product and it works really well.

This product is a great way to tone and hydrate your skin while delivering the oh so important Vitamin C and other anti aging elements.

First, the sulfer in each spray will drive deep down to penetrate your skin and increase elasticity.
It will gently purify your skin and pores and can even reduce the size of your pores.
It is super easy to use. I use it every evening before I go to bed.
I use it before I use my nightly moisturizer.
I have noticed a change in my skin in the 30 days I have been using it. It feels softer and really looks brighter.
You can get this product on Amazon. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

It is that time of year again.. Time to brush up on our Turkey cooking/carving skills.
Be watching my blog because over the several few weeks I will be giving you tips and tricks to making the most delicious moist and tasty turkeys. I will also be answering an turkey questions you may have.
I will also give you a bunch of sides that will be great with your holiday bird along with recipes you can make with that leftover turkey!!
I am so excited to share all my turkey knowledge with you!!
Happy Holidays :)


First off this product is made in the USA and that is awesome!!
I always try and get products that are made here!!!
It is really easy to use, just apply to the skin where you think you have cellulite.
It is super easy to apply, using your hands, it absorbs into the skin quickly and drys pretty fast. I wait until I am dry to get dressed.
It has a wonderful smell and I like the way the aroma lingers a little bit!!
I have these little dimply looking spots and this cream has really worked on making them less visible!!!
I am also using this on them tiger stripes on my boobs!! I have noticed the stripes have gotten a little lighter!!
I have very sensitive skin and there has been no reaction to this cream so I know it is safe for others with sensitive skin like mine.
They are one of the products on the market with Retinol and Caffeine!! That is super cool.

Remodia Wine Aerator

I have always wanted to be a red wine drinker but never really understood how to drink it.
I was lucky enough to get a Wine Aerator from Remodia.
So I went and got me a sweet bottle of wine.

When you get the aerator it comes packaged in a stylish box and includes the wine aerator, a convenient stand, a set of instructions and a handy travel pouch to take it with you where ever you go.
How it works..
The umbrella-shaped aeration component expands your wine, exposing it to the mazimum amount of air possible as it flows over, around and under the wine. This allows the win to mix with the air and changes the taste to a softer, more enjoyable and palatable experience.

I bought a bottle of wine I had tried before and I did not put in in the fridge, I left it out at room temperature and then used the aerator and I was really surprised. The wine tasted really fresh, it had a lighter taste like white wine.. I was pretty shocked about the difference.
I am so excited to start picking out red wines and using this aerator.
I am going to try them with white too!!!
If you want to start enjoying wine the way it was meant to you can get this Aerator on Amazon here.

I received this product in exchange for my honest review.

Smart Weigh 500 x 0.01g Digital Pro Pocket Scale Review

We all need a Smart Scale.
I like to have one for measuring when I get recipes that are written in ounces instead of cups.
  You can also use this  for weighing mail.
This scale works for both of those!!!
This scale is lightweight, accurate and durable.
It is made REALLY well and is so easy to use.
It has a blue back light which makes it so easy to read.
It has several ways that you can weigh your stuff and it comes with 2 lids!!!
Now even though it will not fit in my pocket, it will fit in my purse and I can take it with me if needed. It also takes up NO space on my desk when I am using it to weigh mail!!
You can go and get your own on Amazon here

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

Magnetic Screen Door by iGotTech Review

I had a chance to try out a few different ones of these and I love this screen door.
The house I live in needs the door jams fixed so getting a screen door was out of the question.
How ever using this one is amazing
it is super easy to set up.. I had no trouble doing it by myself.
All you have to do it apply the sticky strips and then hand the screen and use the little tacks to make sure it does not come off.
SUPER cool!!! I just love how the 26 powerful  magnets make the screen close and keeps out all the
bugs!! The entire frame is lined with reinforced velcro!!! You can an amazing breeze which is awesome this time of year because the weather is cooler and it starts to smell like holidays outside and the cool crisp air is flowing in and out of the house!!!
You can get this on Amazon here
Even though I received this for free in exchange for my review ALL content is my own!!

Argan Body Lotion and Body Oil

I had the opportunity to try this and OMG I am so addicted!!
 The lotion: I have always had rough and dry skin.. which is crazy cause I never go outside!!
But anyways I am so famous for having dozens of lotions and potions all over the house!!
Not anymore.. the lotion smells so good, easy to apply and does not leave a greasy feeling on your skin. After just a couple of uses you will really start to see it working. It takes the dryness out and leaves your skin soft and supple!!! I am so glad that I got to try this product!!
The body oil is amazing to use after getting out of the shower. Towel dry off and then before getting dressed lather your body up with this oil and it will dry quickly.
It leaves you smelling so beautiful and it starts to work on your skin immediately!!
If leaves you feeling like you just went to the spa!!
I am even using it on my face!!!
I hope you go and check this out on Amazon.

MAG-Magnetic Screen Door Review

Ahhh......... the fall weather is finally heading our way.. I love to smell the fall weather and to feel the cool air. We did not have a screen door so I got this Magnetic one for free to try. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! It is soooooooooooo super easy to use.
All you have to do is use the sticky's that come with the kit and place them over your door.
I also used the little nails so that the wind would not blow mine away.

They fit most doorways, mine did not quite fit BUT my hubby was able to add a little board to the side of the entryway so that it would fit!!!
It was so simple to put up and once you do.......... LEAVE that door open!!!
It is so cool to use.. the magnetic strips are very heavy and always close when you come in and out.
Here is my front door. It is super funny cause the dog is scared of it and she wont even try to walk thru it!!!!
Everyone who does not have a screen door should get one of these, they are super cool and very cost effictive!! I am going to get one for the back door!!!
You can get this item on Amazon here.
