Garden Botanika- Heart Eau De Perfume

I received in the mail as part of a product review Heart Eau De Perfume. The fragrance is to have a light, sheer breeze of fragrance to refresh you throughout the day. Heart fragrance blends the sheer scent of florals with tones of cedar, citrus and a hint of musk. I sprayed it on and thought the scent was different and not my normal kind of perfume but it was very nice. I even had my mom try it and she liked it as well. You could wear this perfume daily or for those special occasions like a date or family get together whatever you would like. Garden Botanika sells a wide variety of beauty products from skin care, perfumes, all -purpose cleaners, bracelets and so much more you can visit their website at

Body Niche

I received in the mail as part of a product review a sample of Body Niche lotion. I found the scent of the lotion nice but it seemed a little watery to me and not very thick looking like some lotions. It is made for all natural ingredients which is good as it is better for you then all the chemicals that goes into your body like other products but until I read this with the lotion I never realized this so I think maybe it may be time to switch to more all natural lotions regardless of the consistence I am used to. Besides lotion Body Niche also has therapy gel, pain reliever gel, lip balm, bath salts, massage lotions, oils and butters. And so much more, the prices are very reasonable for the size and amount you get. I have included a information about the company from their website
Our Beginning:
Body Niche was created by Gina Nuenke, who has been a licensed Massage Therapist since 1999. Her love for aromatherapy and all natural body products stemmed from her massage career. She quickly became bothered by the fact that most of the massage products available were full of harsh chemicals and preservatives. Not wanting to put these on her or her clients’ skin, she began to create her own natural massage products, which she currently sells to bodywork professionals. These products were amazingly moisturizing for the skin, so Gina expanded her product line to include natural bath and body products for the health and wellbeing of all!
Our Beliefs:
Our belief here at Body Niche is that God has supplied us here on earth with all that we need to take care of our bodies. Using the best of what God has provided for us, our products contain high quality natural and organic ingredients such as cocoa butter, unrefined shea butter, natural essential oils and herbs, and a variety of other healthy oils to make your skin healthy and beautiful. Natural oils have long been applied to the skin because they contain vitamins, minerals, fats, and proteins. Only the most proven ingredients should touch your skin if you are serious about preserving the supple, smooth, unblemished surface that tells so much about you.

3d Laser Gift

I received in the mail as part of a product review a 3d Laser Gift and here is how it works: Converting your standard 2D photo into a 3D crystal This process is a wonderfully unique way in which to create awe inspiring gifts and awards. By means of a sophisticated computer software program, your photos can be modeled into a three dimensional design. The 3D image is then etched with high quality green laser into a flawless piece of optically clear solid crystal that can last forever. What we need from you ? We simply need a good quality photo. We can then laser your photo into our crystals utilizing the highest quality standards. Make sure when you upload your photo that it is well illuminated, in a high resolution and is not blurred. Your photo may show one, two or up to three people. I got this from their website: , it also explains more of the process on how it is converted which you can check out if you want. It comes in 6 shapes and 7 sizes. I love how you can choose any photo you want the possibilities are endless with which one to choose . The one I received is a medium sized , I choose to put Patch on it as he has now passed and went to heaven. I wanted to remember what a special dog he was and how he is missed dearly. When the gift arrived the box was so heavy I was surprised at that here is what it looks like set up and the light on:

I would buy one today as this is a unique gift and perfect for someone who has everything and it shows special meaning from the heart.

Talenti Gelato

I received in the mail as part of a product review Talenti Gelato coupons because it would be impossible to ship this ice cream as it will melt. I bought Caribbean Coconut and Double Chocolate. I have never had gelato and wondering to myself why it is just Italian ice cream well after tasting the Caribbean Coconut I will be buying it again as gelato does not get solid like ice cream does and easier to scoop. The taste was so yummy and real pieces of coconut. I love the packaging a plastic container with screw top lid which is earth friendly you can recycle the container or use it to store craft items or food items wherever your image takes you for reusing it. The price in my local Hannaford is $4.99 which is a little pricy but worth the price. I saw they have a peanut butter one but have not found it locally yet I can’t wait to try it! You can visit their website at:
Try some today and let me know which is your favorite also on their website has a store locator to find where you can purchase it. Here is a history on the company:
Talenti began as a gelateria in 2003 and has since grown into the best-selling gelato in the US. Taking inspiration from Argentine helado—gelato brought to Argentina by Italian immigrants in the early 20th century, Talenti is made with the same uncompromising commitment to quality and artisanship that distinguished Italian gelato in the pre-WWII era.
Talenti offers a unique experience, using only the finest natural and raw ingredients, carefully sourced locally and from around the world—Belgian Chocolate, fresh whole Tahitian vanilla beans from Papua New Guinea, select coconuts from the Philippines, and real Argentine dulce de leche are just a few of the many fine ingredients used to create Talenti gelatos and sorbettos.
Our gelato is made with fresh, hormone-free milk and only pure cane sugar. Not only is it delicious, but with 30% less fat than regular ice cream, it’s also a healthier alternative. Our sorbetto is dairy free and 100% fat free and also made with pure cane sugar—never high-fructose corn syrup. Both Talenti’s sorbettos and gelatos showcase our commitment to providing wholesome, all-natural frozen desserts that taste amazing.

Al Fresco All Natural Chicken sausage

I recently received in the mail part of a product review Al Fresco red and green pepper chicken sausage. I love chicken sausage anyways so I could not wait to try these. They were shipped to me via Fed Ex in a cooler type box with an ice pack. I used one as it comes in a package of four and put it in my cold macaroni salad I it was really tasty and yummy you can taste the peppers but it was not overpowering, next time I think I will put it with spaghetti and tomato sauce or even in with macaroni and cheese would taste good. I really like the fact it is chicken oppose to pork sausage as pork can be greasy and more fat then in chicken. I need to lose weight so these will be a perfect meal as all meat is low in carbohydrates too so anyone on an Atkins type diet this is for you! Besides chicken sausage they have Breakfast Sausages I bet the wild blueberry one is tasty, chicken burgers and chicken meatballs. You can view more on their website at also on their website you can see where you can purchase locally or if you do not see what you like in your local store you can always order what you want only. Try them today! Which is your favorite? Comment on my blog and let me know. You can also follow them on Twitter and Facebook. Sign up for email updates too to get the latest news and recipes.

Dali Wall Decals

I received in the mail as part of a product review some decals from Dali Decals. Dali Decals offers a wide variety of decals from small decals to large decals that you could put on your whole bedroom wall. I also saw Modern Mosaics so you can use them instead of buying tile and less expensive. The decals can be put on appliances, electronics, laptop or anywhere you want to a touch of your own personality. I have enclosed a guide to installing your decal that I got from their website
1. Clean the area and let dry.
2. Position your decal
3. Once in the desired position make 2 pencil marks on the paper and hold in place with painters tape and step back to see if you like it.
4. Make sure the hard paper backing is facing you and carefully peel off the paper backing
5. Line up the pencil marks you made on the paper and line up with the painters tape.
6. Gentle smooth the transfer paper now that you have your decal on the wall and to smooth it out use a squeegee. Start at the center and work your way out in a sunburst pattern.
7. Now peel the transfer paper from the wall. Starting at one corner and fold it back over itself while keeping pressure against the decal and it should stick to the wall if it does continue previous step.
8. Finish and enjoy.
It is real simple I am starting with a small decal and here is the one I chose:

Skoy Cloth

I received in the mail as part of a product review Skoy Cloth. Skoy Cloth is to be used instead of paper towels or sponges and one skoy cloth equals 15 rolls of paper towels so they are very earth friendly. You can use this with just water or household cleaners and use as you would normally use a paper towel. They are thicker then a paper towel . To clean your skoy cloth you can be washed in a dishwasher or washer and to dry a dryer. Another way to keep the cloth healthy and germ free put it in the microwave  wet and  put the timer on for 1-2 minutes. I used it to clean up a spill on my counter and found it worked really well and would recommend this product. You can visit their website at: . I also am including the story of Skoy Cloth from the website:

Our story is quite simple. We had a desire to share a cloth that is better than any cloth we have ever used and was environmentally friendly.  We started to do a little research and were shocked to see how people were cleaning their kitchens. We were even more shocked to find out how many tons of paper towels were being used annually (2.5 million tons) and filling up our landfills.  
We are two stay-at-home moms living in Encinitas, California. Our children have begun Elementary school and we have a little extra time.  We decided that this would be the perfect time to start our business.
We have been working and researching for almost a year on our product. We have such passion for this cloth because we believe that it is the best thing out there.
‘The idea originated when Michelle was living in Europe in the late 90’s.  She discovered a product that was similar to the SKOY cloth and it was just amazing.  Over time she found the cloth to be indispensable.  When she moved back to the US, she realized that the use of a sponge was inadequate and the excessive use of paper towels, wasteful. Michelle searched and searched for a similar cloth and nothing even compared; nothing was of the same caliber. This is when Michelle introduced the cloth to Karen. She immediately fell in love with it and could not imagine cleaning with anything else.’
We then put our heads together and discussed a way to bring this product to the US with the requirement that it meet our high standard.  Now we are so excited to be able to offer the SKOY cloth to you—which is everything that we had hoped it would be.
How we got our name
Looking for a name proved challenging.  After looking for a  long time, we found a word that is the philosophy of our business.  Skoj (pronounced Skoy) is a Swedish word that means: “just for fun”! What a perfect word for our business.  In other words, we wanted a business that we could have fun doing and at the same time would bring fun to the kitchen. With really cool designs we think we have accomplished this, while still doing our part to take care of the Earth.
About our factory
Our factory is aware of the responsibility for handling its resources carefully. We use renewable raw materials such as cellulose (derived from wood), and cotton to produce our SKOY cloths. Our factory has invested heavily in developing and implementing an integrated environmental recycling and disposal facility in which the economical use of energy and water is first and foremost. Production by-products are purified and recycled as far as possible within the process. Regeneration baths are returned to production by an evaporation process. Wastewater is treated at the site's biological wastewater purification plants. This environmental concept is at the vanguard of operations-related environmental policy and has resulted in our factory becoming a reference company throughout the industry.

Lakeside Dairy Bar

I recently went to my local ice cream place which was called Lakeside Dairy Bar. It is located on Route 302 in Naples, ME. This is another Maine must if you visit the state. I wanted a childhood favorite which is Black Raspberry with chocolate sprinkles and to my surprise they asked if I want soft-serve or hard ice cream. I never knew it came in soft serve! I was delighted to try it I was so surprised how much it tastes like Black Raspberry and I would try it again, if you have never had soft serve Black Raspberry ice cream this is a must! I should of got kiddie size though as small was too much for me and price was reasonable. Try some today.

To Go Brands

I received in the mail as part of a product review to go brands which make Vita Rocks, Go Greens, Extreme Berries to go, Acai Natural Energy Chews, Omega To Go, Green Tea Fusion, Trim Energy. I really enjoyed the Vita Rocks and the Acai Natural Chews were ok also but I had a hard time tolerating the texture of the Omega to go as they are in powder form and you mix them in your water I could not get the powder to dissolve completely so I felt it was not for me but that does not mean it is not for you. To Go Brands are made from all natural ingredients and helps boost your metabolism so they are perfect if you are working out, exercising, need a pick me up to get thru the day give these products a try and let me know what you think of them. You can visit their website at: . The prices are very reasonable and you can click on the store locator to see where to buy them and here is the link: 
Also you can download coupons and who does not like coupons? On the website there are also recipes to try, I think I may try them maybe I will do better mixing the powder drink mixes in another food item and tolerate them better.

Live Virtual Event
: July 13th and 14th 2012
Continues online from: July 15 - October 15, 2012

Have you ever calculated how much it costs to attend traditional trade shows? Registration, flights, hotels, and food are just the half of it – often retailers find themselves taking key staff members crucial to the day-to-day operations of their business “on the road” for a week to catch up on what’s happening in their industry.
Imagine a place where you can interact with product vendors just as you would in a conventional trade show and do it all online in a zero carbon footprint event. thinkbaby is proud to launch thinkvirtual. We will be launching a series of online trade shows based on several vertical industries. The first of which will be for the baby industry, called Bambino2Kiddo Virtual Expo.
  • No travel time. No expenses eating into your bottom line
  • No trees. No jet fuel.
  • No bad food. No aching feet.
When you attend Bambino2Kiddo Virtual Expo, your store will:
• Visit with baby product companies in their virtual booths and interact via text and video chat.

• Use a virtual briefcase and pull documents to review at your convenience from a company’s virtual booth....instead of lugging them around all day and creating needless waste.

• Check out the latest products, demos, show specials and information all from the comfort of your home, office or store.

• Attend our virtual speaker series and hear industry experts and thought leaders. Featured speakers: Alison Bernstein (VP of The Bump), Christopher Gavigan (Co-founder of The Honest Company), Ali Wing (Founder of giggle), Ken Cook (President of The Environmental Working Group)
• Virtual training for staff. Many retailers often travel to shows with a small number of employees. Use the event as an opportunity to get ALL of your staff up-to-speed on products you currently carry and the latest developments in the baby industry.
• Use the event as a tool to help determine which product companies that you would like to meet with further during your next traditional expo, instead of walking around the endless maze of booths.

• Hang out in our networking lounge and discuss the hottest trends with parents all over the globe.

For only $50 per registrant, it's a great cost effective way to stay tuned.

Our mission here at snackTAXI is to make high quality, affordable reusable bags that empower everyone to reduce waste, while embracing business practices that respect our community, environment, and Earth.I invented the first snackTAXI way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We were packing over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock baggie. snackTAXIs are easy too - really! They are made in our rural Massachusetts workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers - we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor. We hope you'll enjoy using snackTAXIs as much as we enjoy making them!

Dark Seeker By Taryn Browning

I just finished reading Dark Seeker By Taryn Browning. I have got to say the book was action packed all the way thru and kept my attention I did not want to put it down. I love the relationship between Kia and Janie. If you are a fan of vampire novels and romance this is one you have to read. Taryn knows how to capture her reader’s attention and here is some information I got about the book from her website which is
For 17-year-old Seeker, Janie Grey, ridding the Baltimore streets of the undead is an inherited duty passed down from her Cherokee ancestors. Seeker Training Lesson #1: Never trust the undead. After her father’s tragic death, Janie creates her own life lesson: Love isn’t worth the risk. Both lessons are easy to follow until she encounters the flawed Kai Sterdam. At first, she believes he is the hybrid she is trained to hunt. But, when he has human traits, she determines she doesn’t know what he is. As Janie’s intrigue over who Kai is pushes her deeper into his mysterious past, she discovers a shocking truth that is even more harrowing than the evil they are up against. It’s a secret Kai wants to keep hidden, especially from Janie.

I look forward to reading more from her. I would go buy this book and let me a comment on what you liked about this book.

Dry Divas

I received in the mail as a product review dry divas designer shower cap. This is not the old fashioned shower cap as your mom and grandmother may have used this one is colorful with a cute pink bow with a designer charm attached to it. It is great for hairstylists or anyone who needs to put their hair in a shower cap. The company is based in California. I picked the bouffant style as I have long hair and it is called Luca’s Love. The price is $26.00 but it is so worth it since it not the normal disposable caps and will be able to use this one over and over again.
Here is a photo of mine:

You can find the whole shower cap collection at:
You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter, you can learn more about this product! Here is history on the company:
My motto in life is to “have fun”. While I know that life isn’t always a party, I try to bring sunshine and happiness to the people I love and everything I do.
I started my life as Colleen O’Neill. Irish through and through, green quickly became my favorite color. After graduating from the University of Arizona, I met my best friend and soul mate (truly, I got very lucky in this department) and started my life as Colleen Bellitti. After working for years at an investment banking firm, we had our second child and I quickly realized that I needed more flexibility than my office job could provide. I then worked as a personal assistant where I shopped and threw parties for a living. It was an exciting, fulfilling role, but I still found myself wondering, as I was read my blackberry in between putting my kids to sleep, what could I create on my own from home?
My daughter Isabel has curly hair, and like most eight-year-olds, has a very busy schedule. After a long day of school and after-school activities, I didn’t want her to shower and go to bed with wet hair. Plus, she didn’t need to wash her hair every day. So the search for a shower cap was on. I searched everywhere but couldn’t find an attractive quality shower cap for her anywhere. The ones I found were just a step up from a disposable cap and left her hair wet and flat. The light bulb went on, and the rest is history. I am so happy to be able to provide a shower cap that is made in the USA and adds a splash of sunshine and style to your everyday beauty routine to bring out the diva in you.

Fashion To Figure

I received in the mail 2 tops from fashion to figure to review and I must say they are nice items except I did not realize they would be so sheer but that is my fault for not looking at the description completely. One top I would wear over a tank top or swimsuit, the other top I would wear with black pants or jeans since it hangs off my shoulder on one side to be a little sexy. I would call them for a size chart as there is not one on their website and they are not your normal fit tops. They are reasonably priced and have cute clothes you can go to their website at:
Here is a photo of one of the tops:

Sue's bracelet Helper

I received in mail from Tomoson as part of a product review a Sue’s bracelet helper.It comes as a long stick looking product with a love charm on it and a clip on the end and also the wire is green. The purpose of the bracelet helper is to get the bracelet clap. It is a nice idea and since we all have a hard time putting bracelets on because of the small claps and as you get older it becomes even harder. This is the link to her website:
The price to purchase one is $10.99 plus shipping and it is only available online. When you purchase one 25% goes to Parkinson’s research which is a great cause as you may know someone that has been effected by this disease.
How to use taken from her website:
CLIP your bracelet clasp into the Sue’s Bracelet Helper.
GRIP the Sue’s Bracelet Helper in the palm of the hand on which you will fasten your bracelet
.FLIP your bracelet around your wrist, fasten the clasp, and simply remove your Sue’s Bracelet Helper.History: I bought my first bracelet helper for my mom, Dori. She was afflicted with Parkinson ’s disease and had long since given up wearing her bracelets. I found the bracelet helper in the back of a magazine and ordered it right away. It was such a joy to see her smile, using her bracelet helper to clasp her favorite bracelets! It was wonderful that these old friends could be part of her life again. But the real joy was that with the bracelet helper she could clasp it herself! So why the Sue’s Bracelet Helper? While the bracelet helper I purchased for my mom was functional it was well, less than pretty. So I started making my own bracelet helpers. Pretty bracelet helpers, with warm comfortable wooden handles, colorful wire wrap and large secure clasps that are easy to use. And Sue’s Bracelet Helpers have a wonderful charm, sure to make you smile. Sue’s Bracelet Helper will serve another benefit. Every Sue’s Bracelet Helper you purchase will raise money for Parkinson’s Research. A portion of Sues Bracelet Helper proceeds will be donated to the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego. Every Sue’s Bracelet Helper you purchase brings us closer to a world without Parkinson’s.
