Nuevue Cotton Twill IPad Case Review and Giveaway

Nuevue has Ipad, Mini Ipad and IPhone cases. I recently was given the opportunity to review the Green Cotton Twill IPad case which is elegant and soft to the touch. This case is made with Biocote technology, Anti-Static and shock resistant.  I know from time to time our cases for our electronic devices get dirty or we need to protect them and when I found Nuevue I was very grateful for the selections and designs they offer which are solids and simple colors with nothing flashy. This case also cleans with each use as you pull it out and move all around to clean it. To learn more visit http://www.nuevue.com

My Opinion: I really like the quality of the case and the color as it is very durable and keeps my Ipad clean and safe.

Barnana


Barnana has launched two new flavors that I would like to tell you about. They are Organic Peanut Butter Banana Bites which are Organic, Non-GMO, Heart Healthy, Real Peanut Butter, Gluten Free and more. The other flavor is Organic Coconut Chewy Banana Bites which is made with Raw, Organic, Non-GMO, Heart Healthy and more.
My Opinion: The coconut ones I could taste the bananas and coconut very clearly and the Peanut Butter ones was a little harder to bite into but the flavors did come through. If I had to choose one or the other it would be the coconut ones as I liked them better as they were softer.

Sitara Collections


Sitara Collections offers products made in India which was founded in 2007 which has since grown to feature pieces from South Americas and France. I was recently given the opportunity to review for them and I got Faceted Rose Quartz Briolette Sterling Silver Necklace this necklace has a teardrop shaped rose quartz which shows layers of and threaded on the sterling silver chain. The meaning of this stone is the "Love Stone." Its energetic hallmark is that of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. This makes rose quartz a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. As a variety of quartz, rose quartz has high energy, and this strong energy can enhance love in virtually any situation. 


The other piece I got was a Silverplate Rainbow Moonstone Chain Bracelet the  shimmering moonstones are the stars of our retro glam bracelet. Half a dozen iridescent stones are mounted in gorgeous silver-plated metal settings, their diamond shapes and intricate detail work creating an enchanting vintage feel. The unique, color-changing moonstones will captivate you with every wearing. The meaning of this gemstone is Rainbow Moonstone Jewelry comes in so many different types and styles... with so many really beautiful pieces available, that it is easy to choose one to suit you. These lovely crystals are very powerful stones that are wonderful to wear and they are quite easy to find made into jewelry, with a range of beautiful styles available. Wearing one of the beautiful range of different Rainbow Moonstone pendants , or lovely rings or earrings will be extremely helpful to you as they possess many excellent qualities. Lovely Moonstone necklaces are easy to buy. By wearing it you will benefit immensely... as it resonates a calming energy... as well as being a strong stone for psychic protectionIt is said that if you wear Moonstone as a pendant it encourages you to accept your psychic powers. It should be easy to buy a piece of jewelry, made using any of the colors of this stone... although the Rainbow Moonstones are the most common, and the most popular.
My Opinion: I love both the pieces I picked out and will be wearing this a lot as I need to find some direction and they are just stunning. The quality is nice as well.

July 4th Crafts

BALD EAGLE TOILET PAPER ROLL 
Materials:
toilet paper roll,
printer,
glue,
scissors,
something to color with,
paper
 
Instructions:
Print out the template of choice.
 Colour the pieces as appropriate and cut them out.
 Glue the large rectangular piece around the toilet paper tube.
 Glue the tummy onto the front of the tp roll.
 Glue  tail onto the back of the tp roll.   I glued it to the inside back and then folded it upward.  I think it looks nice that way, but be creative!.
 Glue the head onto the front of the tp roll.
 Glue the wings onto the back of the tp roll to make it look like the eagle is flying.
 Fold the feet and glue the tabs to the inside of the tube.

July 4th party pot 

WHAT YOU NEED:
terra cotta pot - size doesn't matter.  We used 4 1/4" pots when we made ours.  They're the perfect size for napkins or plastic utensils.  Alex's photo looks a bit bigger...  An 8" pot maybe.
 Optional:  terra cotta pot bottom (another 89 cents...  Though you don't really need it if you're just making the pot to hold utensils and such).
 Printer, paper and scissors.
 white glue or mod podge
white glue works just fine for affixing the stars.  But mod podge is water resistant (though not water proof), white glue isn't.
Having said that, it's also very smelly...  I can just feel the brain cells popping when I use mod podge.  If doing this project with younger kids, just stick with white glue.
A parent can always go back in the evening when the kids are asleep and coat the whole project with a coat spray varnish.  My girls are convinced there's a spray varnish fairy out there covering special craft projects with magic varnish in the middle of the night.  They're always so excited to see if their latest project was special enough to warrant the spray varnish fairy's finishing touch.
 red, white and blue paint. 
acrylic paint is the best choice if you want this project to last forever.  But, if you get it on your clothes, the paint lasts forever there too!
tempra paint works just fine, but it isn't water proof.
The spray varnish trick works over tempra paint!  Make sure you coat the inside of the pot as well as the outside.
 
WHAT I DO:  I "bulk paint" terra cotta pots white or light grey.  I often do this when we're painting the house or the fence...  I just use the same paint or stain I use for the house and fence.  I paint about 20 of them, stick them in the spare room and pull them out as needed.  The white/light grey are easier to cover with tempra paint than the terra cotta color.  When a project is finished, the spray varnish fairy comes along to seal in the outside.
 
How to:
Paint the pot white, up to the rim.
 Paint the rim of the pot blue.
 Paint the pot holder bottom blue if you choose to buy one.
 Set the pot aside to dry (it takes about an hour).
 Print out the template of stars.
 Cut out the template pieces.  It took me about 7 stars for my 4 inch pot, though you could space them closer.  There are extra stars on the template.  You can use them to decorate additional pots or just discard them.
 When the pot is dry, add a second coat of white/blue as necessary.  Let dry again.
 When the pot is dry and you're happy with the coverage of the white and blue, glue or mod podge the stars around the rim of the pot (the blue).
 Paint a couple of red stripes around the pot.  I tried to tape the lines with the same kind of masking tape you use for painting walls, but the pot is tapered so it doesn't work very well.  We ended up just doing it by hand.
Fill the pot with utensils and napkins or with treats for your guests.
 Optional:  After the party, put a plant in it.

Those are just a couple ideas and you can finds more at http://www.dltk-kids.com/usa/crafts-other.htm

Amplicom PowerTel 700 Series


I recently was able to review the new PowerTel 700 Series from Amplicom and can I tell you this the most awesome phone I have ever owned or learned about. I got a Corded Phone with a built in answering machine and has the following features: hearing aid compatible with TIA 1083 Compliant, High quality sound and low distortion when amplified to max level. Easy to use, adjustable volume for calls amplified up to max 50 dB, Integrated answering machine with up to 11 min. record timetalk-back numbers and caller ID (for missed calls and numbers in phone book), adjustable hands free speakerphone 3 programmable volume / tone control buttons on the base for multi user profiles + 2 on cordless handsetflashing bright white LED visual ringer, corded telephone can be used in the event of a power failure. I also got Cordless HeadSet which has also hearing aid compatible, TIA 1083 compliant, high quality sound and this also has WIRELESS DECT 6.0 WRIST SHAKER this vibrates with an incoming call, visual LED call signaling, when button is pressed you speak with it. Automatically calls 911 when you press the red button.  This retails from $100 TO $250 for your home which is affordable.
My Opinion: I no longer have to pay a monthly fee for an answering machine as now I have a built in one. The phones is clear and no muffled voices on the other end which is a plus I also think this wrist shaker is great for an elderly family member or anyone with a health condition to wear as you can hit the red button to call 911 so you do not worry as much with them living alone .

Fave Juice Giveaway


I have the hardest time every now and again to get my son to finish eating all his vegetables. He will eat fruit all day long, but he will only eat half of his serving of vegetables. I was given the chance to try out FAVE juice, and the first person I thought about was my son. 


Now, this isn't just meant for children. Don't get me wrong. This can be drank by anyone in this world. I was able to sample three different flavors: Strawberry Banana Kiwi, Orange Tangerine Pineapple, and Pomegranate Blueberry Goji. I, myself usually don't take the time out of my day to sit down and eat a healthy meal. At my son's mealtimes, I am usually singing and dancing to get him to laugh, or cleaning up my kitchen while talking to him. But don't think about eating myself. 
I can't say that my son or I had a favorite one, because every one of those
juices were gone very quickly. I started drinking the juices while my son ate his meals, and I would give him this juice rather then give him the average every day juice he is used to getting and doesn't drink much of. This is so much better. It doesn't taste full of sugar. You can't taste the vegetable's at all. It is just delicious. 


Some fun facts. Each 8 ounce serving of Fave contains: 
  • Only sixty calories
  • No preservatives, artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup. 
  • Three full servings of vegetables.
  • Antioxidant power of vitamins A and C
  • It is All natural 100% fruit and vegetable juice.  




It is sure to please anyone in your household.

Enjoy Hair Care Giveaway By Little Helpers In Life

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.


I will be honest. I have A LOT of hair, but my hair is crazy. Most days it is just super flat. Making me just throw it up in a pony tail. I have natural waves and curls, but because my hair is so flat. I can't do much with it. I have tried EVERYTHING, and nothing seems to help keep my hair the way I would like it for more then twenty minutes after I am done doing it. 



I have been lucky enough to try Enjoy hair care. I was given the chance to try the Sulfate-Free Rejuvenating Volumizing Trio.   I was so excited to see how fast this product would work with my terrible hair. I opened the package, and as my son napped I decided it was definitely shower time. I took a shower, and washed my hair as directed. Just with the shampoo my hair had already started feeling so much better. Not weighted down like with my everyday shampoo. 


I used the conditioner next. I did leave this in for about five minutes while I did the rest of my showering. I really like having my hair as soft as possible. After I was finished it felt so soft, and so much lighter. Like I washed chemical build up out of my hair. 


I was also given mousse to try. So, I decided that I should try and do my hair how I would like even though I wasn't confident that it would hold for more then a half hour. To my surprise, my hair lasted all day until I had to pull it up when I went into the pool. 


I overall was so impressed with Enjoy Hair Care. After multiple uses my hair feels more and more chemical free and less heavy. And since my hair is so long, it is literally like a huge weight off my shoulders. I will definitely be continuing to use these products.

Weight loss Rants

I am writing this today as I am one who struggles with weight loss and eating the right foods. Last July I went on a 1200 calorie diet which included T25 and from then until September I had lost inches and 15 pounds. Now I have gained it all back and my legs are even bigger than before. I am frustrated as I am tired of the weight loss roller coaster. I tried going on my weight loss journey again back in April but found that I could not get motivated along with every day stressors with work and home life I became depressed. I am tired of being overweight and plan on trying a new approach this week as I have learned some things in the past and they are I have to stick to a plan with very little deviations as I will fall off the wagon again. Start off eating what I like and go from there meaning do not try to accomplish too much too soon.  Do you feel the same way I do? Would you like to see my daily food intake with calories listed? Do you want simple recipes listed to try yourself? I love to eat and that what got me into this so now I need to learn to eat only the right foods and not the ones that have been there my whole life through every mood I was in rather I was happy, sad, depressed or tired. I need to change my life as I am the only one who no one can do it for you

Wolf Creek 2


Coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on June 24, 2014 is Wolf Creek 2 from RLJ Entertainment and Image Entertainment. This is directed by Greg Mclean and stars John  Jarrett (Wolf Creek, Django Unchained), Ryan Corr (Not Suitable for Children), Shannon Ashlyn (II Taglialegna) and Phillip Klaus (Mercy). This movie runs 106 minutes and takes you on the ride of your life! Lured by an Australian holiday exchange students Paul visits the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. His dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when he encounters the site’s most infamous local Mick Taylor/ When Paul attempts to flee, Mick purses him across a hostile wasteland and eventually drags him back to his underground lair. After seeing the true magnitude of mick’s monstrosity, Paul’s only hope of surviving where no one has ever before will be use of every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster.

My Opinion: It was long and at times boring as Mick Taylor is out to terrorize and mutilate his victims in the outback but other times I will on the edge of my seat hoping the people would get away. Some of the scenes were gory and graphic I had to close my eyes.

Hapari Giveaway



Swimsuit season is finally here, and for some of you, it means buying that teeny bikini you've been eyeing at the mall. For me, however, it means finding a swimsuit that is capable of supporting the "girls" up top, and covering my tummy. I mean, let's face it. After two kids, my body simply isn't what it used to be.



* I received a free product from Hapari in exchange for a review.



Usually, swimsuit shopping is a drag for me, but when I saw Hapari's options, including swim skirts, board shorts, cover-ups, sarongs, and even underwire options, I was actually pretty excited to shop for swimwear. And for me, that is serious business. Oh, and did I mention that they also have swimwear for children?



After an hour or so of going through their super cute swimwear, I finally decided on the Black Plus-Size Tummy Tuk Swim Bottom, the Black Rainbow Plus-Size Sport Tankini Top, and a pair of White Plus-Size Cover Up Board Shorts.





The reason I decided on these three pieces of swimwear was because the Tummy Tuk bottoms would allow me to hide that "belly pooch" that many of us mamas have, and I felt that the tankini, since it was black, would help smooth out my mid-section. The board shorts are simply for cover-up after swimming. They could, might I add, be used to swim in, as they're made from quick-drying fabric.



I placed my order on Tuesday, June 17, and the order arrived on Thursday, June 19, so shipping was incredibly fast. The items were packaged individually, and everything was in great shape.





Upon closer inspection of the suits, I noticed that the detail was quite intricate. The floral Hapari logo was beautifully stitched into the Tummy Tuk swim bottoms and the Cover-Up Board Shorts. There were also small plastic buttons on the board shorts, which, I thought, was a nice added touch.








The tankini top had beautiful, bold, white floral designs, and rainbow-colored diagonal stripes, which turned an otherwise solid black swimsuit into a colorful, vibrant tankini top. On the back, the words "Hapari" were sewn into the fabric.





I've always loved the little details, especially when those details are functional. Remember how I mentioned that when searching for a swimsuit, I need something to "support the girls" (girls meaning breasts, for those of you who don't know)? Well, Hapari has supportive detail down to an art.




Above, you can see the built-in bra on the tankini top. You can also see that there is a bit of padding (not too much, might I add) which help add shape your breasts. And as if that weren't enough...





...the pads are actually stitched right into the top! No more worrying about pads slipping around and giving awkward shape to your breasts. Based on the detail of the stitching, these bad boys aren't going anywhere!



The moment of truth was when I tried this swimsuit on. From what I had already seen, I have to admit, I was a bit frightened that it was all too good to be true. Fortunately, that was not the case, and the swimsuit was a perfect fit, and for once in a long time, I actually felt sexy while in swimwear.



 


What I loved the most is that there were no obvious bulges, which have always seemed to accompany every other swimsuit I've purchased. The top itself was very flattering, and helped contained my "extra meat." My boobs weren't falling out or flailing all about which any top-heavy woman can appreciate.



The Tummy Tuk bottoms actually surprised me! Usually, swim bottoms require constant pulling and tugging in order to keep them in place, but not these! Walking, lying out in the sun, and running away from my son who was armed with the hose were no match for these swim bottoms! Not only did they do what they were designed to do (hide that tummy), they also lifted my behind, or lack thereof, quite nicely (hopefully these squats start paying off soon).





The board shorts were exactly what I'd hoped they'd be. They were enough to cover up, while also looking enough like regular shorts to be able to walk into a convenience store after swimming without feeling awkward. Seriously. Because who has time to get their regular clothes back on just to buy a bottle of water--especially after a long day of swimming?





Needless to say, I'm very impressed with the quality, design, and functionality of this swimsuit from Hapari. It's honestly the best swimsuit that I've ever had. With that said, I would recommend this brand to anyone and everyone looking cute, durable, supportive, high-quality swimwear.
