Pimsleur Spanish 1

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Are you planning an over seas or international trip? Do you need to learn another language fast? Do you travel often and find yourself fumbling with dictionary after dictionary trying to translate what is being said to you and trying to answer? Is there a language you have wanted to learn, but just haven’t been able to due to time constraints, costs, software requirements, or any other myriad of reasons?

The Pimsleur Approach could be just what you are looking for. With no books, Dvds, or software needed it is one of the easiest and most convenient audio language programs on the market. It only takes about 30 minutes a day so it is quick and they request you repeat or answer in Spanish (or which ever language you are learning) whenever they say to, keeping you interacting with it and actively learning the language.

My children and I have been using this program to learn Spanish for a couple of weeks now and are already really starting to learn! I love the way this program works and how easy it is to squeeze in to a busy lifestyle like ours. We can even do it in the car if we need to. It crams a whole lot of information into a short time frame, but does it in a way that is easy to pick up and interactive. It is great how it presents reminders in a specific time frame that really maximizes how much we remember. We are just getting started, but absolutely love this course!



Because it is on Cd’s we can repeat lessons if we miss something or go on to the next lesson and it will review past concepts, words, or techniques later at the most appropriate time to ensure you are learning the language as thoroughly and completely as possible. The kids are really picking up on it fast and repeat or say things when I would least expect it, but at times when the words or sentences they say are appropriate or fitting. Because it only takes a few minutes a day we are able to do it on our time and because it requires listening and speaking it works several parts of the brain making it easy to learn at any age.

Although we are specifically learning Spanish, the Pimsleur approach also offers German, French, Italian, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian, among others, so no matter what language you need to learn you can do it fast and easy with the Pimsleur approach. I absolutely love that it can be taken any where, it can even be downloaded onto my Mp3 player, and only takes about 30 minutes (except when I repeat a lesson to make sure I’ve not missed anything-three kids can be a bit distracting sometimes…. 🙂 )   so I don’t have to worry about cutting a lot of time out of my day to learn.

It presents each concept clearly and precisely and each lesson is very specific ensuring the optimum amount of learning for each concept.  It explains at the very beginning of each lesson how to complete it, then it spends the majority of the time having you practice words and phrases both by repeating and by answering questions out loud. It specifically has you answer out loud so you don’t think about it opposed to speak it and end up using an English dialect opposed to the Spanish (or whichever language you are studying)  dialect.



Each course comes with a Reading Booklet and Owners Manual that comes in PDF form that you can use when you need to and also explains the course/how to use it. It also has an introduction at the beginning of the first CD  so you know exactly what you are expecting when you begin the program.  This program is easy and fun to use and has really worked for both myself and the kids which is great because we want them to be interested in other cultures and languages and this program has kept them asking to do more day after day.

This program is great for adults because it specifically works parts of the brain that help adults young and old learn best and easiest without straining or stress. It is also great for kids, even those that can not read, because it requires no book time and is completely auditory. We had tried another program for the kids before and due to the fact our daughter is just learning to read (she’s 5) it was a little too difficult for her because it required choosing the write word based on spelling where the Pimsleur program has her listening to words and questions and answering in Spanish making it easy for her to learn and pick up on.

No matter what language you are looking to learn-I highly recommend using the Pimsleur Approach to do so. It is quick, easy, and fun and it teaches at your pace. If you want to learn fast you can, but if you have more time to learn you can take your time.

“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.”    ~ Rachel Carson




Jennifer Ott hits it out of the ball park. This book, although fantasy, feels real as the words jump off the page and wrap their way around the heart and mind pulling it’s reader in deeper and deeper. Every page leaves you wanting more and unable to put down the book unless a real life catastrophe strikes.

The earth stops spinning, animals begin to die, everything in the ocean passes away, and people are in a terrible state of panic, scared for their lives. Venetia, the main character and successful model, wonders what has happened to the earth she loves and why no one is doing anything to save it.  She goes on a quest to find a scientist to help her solve the world’s issues and save it, to find that none are willing to help. She then goes on to find like minded individuals to fight to save Earth with her.

She finds herself in an adventure with three energetic, magical, and spiritual companions who care as much as she does what comes of the world. Will she and her new friends end up victorious in the end, or will they and the world they love end in catastrophe?

I have had the hardest time reviewing this book, not because it’s not good (in fact, it’s great!), but because I am fighting myself to not give away the whole story in this post!  It is so good, it’s hard not to tell all before you ever get to pick it up and read a page.  That being said- you really should! It will make you think,  it will draw you in, it will create a world you can’t help but enter, if only for a short time.

I found myself standing on the balcony as Venetia wondered what had happened to her beloved earth, I felt her frustration as each scientist turned down her request, I was in pain with her as she watched the fish of the sea all die, and I rejoiced with her in her high moments. (I can’t tell!! 😉 )   She will encouage you to appreciate the world around you and inspire  you with her courage.  Follow the links below to get your own copy, or enter my contest to win a copy of Serendipidus FREE!


About the Book: 

“Maybe it’s time to set aside intellectualism and celebrate the wonders of things that can’t be explained.”

The Earth has stopped rotating and no one seems to notice or care, except for bleeding-heart super model Venetia DeMille. While Mother Earth begins to fade into a silent death, Venetia clings to hope. She solicits the help of a scientist to help, but no avail.

Not to be hindered in her quest to save the Earth, Venetia sets out on a journey around the world to find like-minded people and caring souls – an exuberant youth, a magical healer and a man of God. Although together they are able to rekindle faith, their effort still does not provide results. It is a mysterious meeting of four horsemen that carry them to the east where they experience a connection to the earth and each other.

Could the forces that gather with their united efforts prove to be the remedy to save the planet?


About the Author:

Inspiration comes from watching way too much Monty Python. The abstract and the absurd way of looking at normal life, not only offers humor, but questions many problems in society in a light-hearted manner. If we can laugh at ourselves, if we can laugh at life, problems do not seem quite so difficult to tackle. In fact, problems are not as complicated as they seem; everything is very simple. If you can laugh at it, write about it and read about it, most likely one would think about it.

Author Jennifer Ott has written several satire fiction, Wild Horses, The Tourist and two non-fiction books Love and Handicapping and Ooh Baby Compound Me! Her latest book about the homecoming of a Vietnam Veteran, Edge of Civilization will be released soon.

Love and Handicapping

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Bet Today, Love Tomorrow



Okay, so I can hear you now, what are you doing reading a book about dating? For heaven’s sake, you’re married!  I know, I know-that is absolutely true.  But I have to tell you-I wish I had been given this book to me back when I was dating. And trust me, that wasn’t that long ago.

Actually, as a teenager, I didn’t really date that much at all. I had a few boyfriends, a lot of crushes, and no success in the dating world. It’s funny, really, because even though this book is written from a certain perspective, it can still be applied to marriage, family, and even friend relationships. One of the first points in the book is “If you do not love yourself unconditionally, how can you expect anyone to else to love you?”  It’s not saying if you don’t love yourself, no one will love you, but it does mean that love will never know it’s full potential because you don’t know or appreciate your own full potential. (shortcomings and all!)

This book is heavily sprinkled with great tips to make any relationship work and how to look for the kind of relationship you want. (and figuring out what exactly it is that you want in a relationship.)  But this is not your typical dating book. It’s fun and witty, full of thoughtful ideas and best of all, it’s realistic!

It touches on everything from personality types, taking care of yourself, realizing your expectations, family and society, and so much more. It was very obvious in reading this book that a lot of thought was put into relationships and how to find the right partner, and be the right partner.  It offers simple red flags to look for when dating someone from punctuality to constant criticism. It even discusses the different types of relationships (dating) and what you can most likely expect from them.

Love and Handicapping is a fun, inventive way to face the dating world and even if you are already in a relationship or married, it is a great book to go back to-because people do change and it is easy to slip into some of the bad habits and poor relationship issues written about by Jennifer.

As I said before, I wish this book had been written when I was dating. It would have saved me a few heart breaks, bad boyfriends, and would have even pointed out the areas that I needed (and some I still do-admittedly) to work on to make myself the right partner for husband today. It was easy to read and quotes and stories that make it both entertaining and informative. I even learned a few things and realized a few areas I could use help in and need to change. It, like relationships, can not be judged by it’s cover or title, it is well thought out, well written, and on point. It may not always apply in every situation or relationship, but it still a great guideline to go by.

I highly recommend picking up your own copy of Love & Handicapping if you are in a relationship, looking for one, or even married. It will revolutionize the way you look at dating, love, and marriage. It will help you along the way, it will counsel you in ways to better yourself and look for your ideal partner. It may even show you that what you are looking for is not quite right or could alter just a little. Love, just like sports, is full of winners and losers. Learn how to be a winning contender in the “game” of love and you may just find yourself in a winning relationship while you are at it!


Book Description:

~~Is your game on?
No denying dating is a game filled with winners and losers. How you finish equates to your own performance.
Dating sites may provide introductions and first time statistics of a possible winning match. Advice advocates give suggestions on previous successes, but still these offer no guarantee and sometimes create more hardship.
Like a sports handicapper you are equipped to assess your own winners; all you need is the tools to do so. Inspired by sports handicapping tips you too can learn how to not only find a winning relationship but become a winning contender.

Schism-The Battle For Darracia

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Schism:  s (k) izem/noun

1. A split or division between strongly opposed sections or parties caused by differences in opinion or belief.





This was my first experience reading a book by Michael Phillip Cash, and I have got to say I was delightfully surprised that I absolutely LOVED this book! A full fledged Fantasy/Suspense book, it is strung with self searching, adventure, inner and outer wars, and  even love. In this book, Prince V’sair is a young 19 year old “mixed breed” so to speak who has yet to use his power (the Fireblade) or even begin to understand what it is and learn it’s secrets. Not yet knowing his full potential, he is left to handle destruction, death, and war ill-equipped and not yet understanding the full weight of what he is up against.

Michael does an excellent job making it feel like you are right there standing next to Prince V’sair as he works to harness his power and find out who he truly is inside. Will he find himself and harness his power in time to save his beloved Darracia? To complicate things, he begins to fall in love with Tulani, his mother’s hand maiden, who takes V’sair to her people for help, to find out they are also in trouble when they arrive.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book from beginning to end. Though I wish it offered more by way of relationships, it gives enough to understand the plot and who each being that is presented in the story is and how they belong.  It is concise, and written in a way that readers of all ages can read it, from young to old, without being left wondering what was being talked about or feeling like a book was just read “meant for the grand kids.”

It grabs attention from the very start and is a very super read. Full of intense moments and a struggle to find one’s self, Schism has the ability to not only entertain, but associate with it’s readers as well. Readers young and old can really associate with Prince V’sairs need to find himself and self seek because they have already been there or are there right now. Due to it’s variety of  situations from action to romance, it is a book that will grasp every readers attention and pull them in leading them to want more and more until the very end.  (and then some!)   I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book (Collision-The Battle for Darracia) since Schism left me wanting more and full of anticipation for what comes next. Schism has done an amazing  job of building the suspense for book #2- Five stars for Michael Philip Cash!


Book Description:

On the planet Darracia, an ever-widening social gap between its inhabitants is causing turmoil that is fracturing a once peaceful world. Struggling with his identity, nineteen year old Prince V’sair must harness the power of the elusive Fireblade, the secret to a warrior’s heart, in order to overcome his uncle Staf Nuen’s lust for supremacy. Will the energy of the Elements guide the young prince to his true destiny or will Staf Nuen conquer Darracia?

After the success of his first three books (Brood X, Stillwell, and The Hanging Tree) Michael Phillip Cash is fulfilling a dream and creating his own epic fantasy world. Schism: The Battle for Darracia is the first book in a planned series.

Endless Possiblities with Picture Collage Maker

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


There are lots of photo editing sites out there. We’ve tried them, Picasa, Picadilo, Picnik, Aviary, Citrify, Pixter, and so many more.  There are just as many collage makers on the market such as InstaCollage, Photo Grid, Pic Stitch Collage Maker etc. Many of which are free apps. But have you ever heard the saying, “You get what you pay for?”

That is how every single one of these companies and applications work. We get exactly what we pay for. I am not saying they aren’t great tools or don’t do a good job. In fact, I use a few of these sites/apps myself. The thing about these sites and apps are they are designed specifically for sharing on social media such as Facebook, Myspace, Instagram, or Twitter. (there are more of those too!) But what if you want professional grade collages or need to print a cd label, create a greeting card or invitation,  or maybe make a calendar as a sweet, thoughtful Christmas gift?

None of these free apps or sites offer these capabilities. In fact, they are quite limited, even in templates, clip art, and set up. (not to mention the limits to number, quality, and where to post such pictures)

I recently was given the opportunity to try Picture Collage Maker and I could not be happier! It is an affordable program that once purchased offers lifetime access and support and a 30 day money back guarantee. It is super easy to use. I can create my own template (consider the endless possibilities!)  or use a template that is pre-made and easy to choose from. Each style of template is divided into categories such as Greetings, Calendar, Template, and many more. Each template is able to be personalized to be exactly how I would like it and adding pictures is super easy. I just choose the folder I would like to get the picture from, click and drag and the picture automatically sizes itself to fit in frame.




Here is an example of a Father’s Day Greeting card created for my husband. The butterflies could easily be taken off and replaced by something more “manly” or be left as they are. The Daddy can also be changed out to say Mommy, Grandma, Papa-what ever you would like it to. There are so many options from templates, to clip art, backgrounds, masks, and frames.





Picture Collage maker not only makes beautiful collages, but as you see, it can also make CD labels, greeting cards, a monthly calendar, lay outs, photo books, posters and SO MUCH MORE! It’s as simple as choosing what you want to make, picking a template, making any changes you want, and adding pictures. Voila! It’s ready to print, or you can share it on your social media sites, you can even save it to print/use later! Couldn’t be any easier. These examples took less than 10 minutes to make, yet they look professional, well put together, and can be used in a variety of ways.

This program is great for personal or commercial use. It is a great tool for me as a blogger and a mom of three very busy children, (easy gifts and adorable wall hangings) but would also be perfect for a business looking to promote itself/advertise, an owner of an at home business, or even recreational or professional photographers looking for more tools to use in their business/hobby.  It is also a great tool for the avid scrapbooker. (Create pages with ease!)

I have absolutely loved working with and, admittedly, playing with, this software and making all sorts of fun projects with it.  I recommend it for anyone as it is such a versatile program and offers so many options. They even offer personal or commercial software offering even more options!  If you “get what you pay for”, I highly encourage you to pay for this! It will be well worth it with it’s lifetime support, registration retrieval (think computer crashes/new computer purchase), and endless possibilities. It is also available for both PC and Mac so you can rest assured it will be available no matter the computer/laptop/notebook choice you make!





Product Description: 

Picture Collage Maker, a simple-to-use photo collage generator that turns ordinary photos and pictures into stunning keepsakes to share with family and friends. With just a few clicks, you can create collages, scrapbooks, posters, invitations, calendars, and greeting cards. Unlike photography software that takes days to master, this powerful collage generator lets both seasoned collagers and new hobbyists become productive in minutes.

Picture Collage Maker is a powerful yet easy-to-use collage maker that enables you to create stunning art works on both Windows and Mac OS X.

Key Features:

  • 140+ gorgeous templates for all kinds of occasions
    Tons of decorations: backgrounds, clipart, frames, masks, etc.
    Lots of customizing features: rotate, resize, crop, text, calendar, etc.
    Wide choices of export & share options.

Happy Scalp, Happy Hair

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I’ve told you all about Dead Sea Mud before and how great it is for skin because of all the natural minerals it has in it. (find that here: https://sanyadalove.wordpress.com/2014/04/26/brought-back-from-the-dead/) But What we haven’t talked about is how great it is for Hair too!

Dead Sea mud is chock full of natural minerals that nourish and heal skin from the inside out. And not just our skin, but our hair too! The key to healthy hair is to have a healthy scalp and roots. Without those, our hair can fall out, be dull, unmanageable, and dry. We may even suffer from dry scalp and dandruff without the benefit of a healthy scalp.  A healthy scalp means gorgeous looking hair, smooth and shiny from top to bottom.  Dead Sea mud is also proven to help those who suffer from psoriasis and eczema.  The stronger and healthier your skin and roots, the less hair loss you will suffer in the future because the healthier the skin surrounding your roots, and your roots, the stronger your hair.



There are a few ways to treat hair with Dead Sea Mud, one of which is to multitask your mask and use it on your scalp/hair, but the easiest of ways to utilize all those awesome vitamins and minerals and nourish your scalp and  hair is to use Dead Sea Mud Shampoo. My favorite is Adovia Mineral Mud Shampoo. It works great, leaving my hair and scalp nourished and healthy.  I no longer have unsightly flakes and can play with my hair all day without it getting damaged, dry or oily.

It is the perfect shampoo for any hair type because it is made from Dead Sea mud (chock full of 38+ vitamins and minerals), Olive oil,  Shea Butter, Vitamin E, and Chamomile. All are meant  to moisturize, nourish, and give hair the golden treatment.  This shampoo has a neutral scent making it great for men and women alike and leaves hair soft and manageable.

If you have never tried Dead Sea Mud shampoo, or even if you have, I encourage you to run over and give Adovia Mineral Mud Shampoo.  With the great results it’ll provide, and it’s satisfaction guaranteed, it is bound to be the spa treatment your hair has been waiting for!



Product Description:

  • Helps to Relieve Itching from Dry, Flaky Scalp & Dandruff

Dead Sea Salts and Mud have been featured on CNN, in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. Dead Sea Mud contains the highest concentration of minerals found in mun anywhere in the world. Finally the benefits of Dead Sea mud and salt are presented to you in shampoo form! These minerals are all essential for proper skin function and help to regulate moisture retention as well as hydration. You complete satisfaction is guaranteed.

Vitamin C Serum and Rosehip Oil

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I have had the opportunity to try many InstaNaturals LLC Products, and I have loved EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. With each new product I try, the more I love the brand, trust it, and grow in loyalty to a brand I once never knew existed.

Recently, I was given yet another opportunity to try two more Insta Naturals products. The Vitamin C Serum and their 100% Natural Rosehip Seed Oil.  I was not left disappointed whatsoever.  I am going to tell you about my awesome results with these products, but first I want to tell you  a little about what makes them so special.


Insta Naturals Vitamin C Serum, like many others, has Hyaluronic Acid in it, but where it changes things up and kicks them up a notch, is with the Ferulic Acid and Natural Aloe. These two ingredients change the whole “formula” of Vitamin C Serum, and bring a new element to the table that other serums don’t offer.

First of all, to explain my above statements, let me tell you a little bit about Ferulic Acid.  Ferulic acid is derived from the cell walls of many plants, but most commonly in brown rice, whole wheat and oats. (it can also be found in fruits and veggies such as apples, oranges, pineapples, or potatoes)  Ferulic Acid is an antioxidant proven to neutralize  free radicals that could damage skin, including damage given from exposure to ultra violet light. (in fact, UV light increases it’s potency) Studies have also shown that ferulic acid can decrease blood glucose levels and can be of help to diabetes patients.

When added to Vitamin C, Ferulic acid has been shown to stabilize Vitamin C and prevent oxidation that happens the moment it’s opened. It is also believed to be a stronger antioxidant that even Vitamin E. Naturally this super antioxidant does more than prevent wrinkles. It fights cancer, is helpful for diabetics and even reduces hot flashes. Products with ferulic acid aren’t easy to come by because the company that originally added it to their Vitamin C + E Serum patented it, so finding a great product with Ferulic Acid in it is great.

Aloe is most often known for use on burns, but it does so much more. Aloe is effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, from flaky or dry skin, cosmetic ailments, hair and scalp problems to many more.  It is also said to be useful in treating wounds and burns, minor skin infections, cysts, diabetes, and elevated blood lipids in humans, and shows some promise in treating more serious and persistent conditions such as eczema, genital herpes, dandruff, psoriasis, canker sores, skin ulcers and others.

Other things Aloe does are:

1. It treats sunburn. 
2. It acts as a moisturizer. 
3. It treats acne. 
4. It fights aging. 
5. It lessens the visibility of stretch marks. 
6. It’s nutrient rich for good health. 
These two ingredients paired with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, are a power house for skin. This serum redefines Vitamin C serum and kicks it up more than a notch to effectively act as not only a serum, but a full face makeover.  It works to even skin tone, diminish fine lines and wrinkes, and lesson the signs of aging and past scars/blemishes.  I have absolutely loved using this serum and can’t stop looking in the mirror. I have the extra self confidence that I no longer have to wonder if I have good skin-I KNOW I have good skin. And I love it! This is a great serum for anyone and comes from a trusted brand that offers a 100% 90 day guarantee. (but you won’t need it!)  This serum is truly the best of the best and comes at an affordable price. I can not say enough about how much I love this Serum from Insta Naturals.
Rose hip essential oil is extracted from the seeds and seed cases of a rose bush.  The rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant. The oil from the plant contains retinol (vitamin A), vitamin C, and essential fatty acids. These combined nutrients make it a great skincare product, packed full of natural anti-oxidants.

It is known to:

  • soothe dry skin
  • even out skin tone
  • brighten dull skin
  • lighten age spots
  • prevent & minimize wrinkles
  • nourish & hydrate brittle nails
  • reverse sun damage
  • lighten burn scars
  • prevent & reduce hyper-pigmentation
  • hydrate & repair dry/damaged hair
  • alleviate itchy scalp
  • treat eczema


I used my InstaNaturals Rosehip Seed Oil fro three things so far, and can’t get over the results! The first way I used it was on my cuticles. I am so happy with the results! I admit, I didn’t just use it on my cuticles, I applied it like a lotion on my hands before bed and when I woke up the next morning, my hands were soft, my cuticles nourished (no more “peeling skin”), and my skin felt healthier.

I also used it with my moisturizer. Because Rose Hip oil is a dry oil, you don’t have to worry about an oily residue or greasy complexion. I actually used this oil right after I applied my Vitamin C Serum. I just took 3-4 drops and mixed it with my usual moisturizer and applied it just like I would during my regular routine. It leaves my face soft and touchable and it is helping diminish my worry lines and even skin tone while keeping my skin soft and healthy.

The last way I have used it so far is as a hair treatment. I applied a moderate amount of oil to my hair and covered it with a towel. I then let it sit for about 45 minutes (30 minutes would have been enough-I got distracted lol). Once I had let it sit I took my shower as I normally would and used my regular shampoo to wash it out.  Because my hair was treated, there was no need for conditioner. (For real!)  All I did after that was dry my hair as normal and my hair was soft, healthy, and touchably smooth.

I absolutely love this Rose hip Oil and can’t wait to use it in other creative ways. (experimentation to follow this post! 😉 )  It is affordable, 100% natural, and comes with a 100% 90 day money back guarantee, making this the perfect product for any person, any skin type, and any budget.  So, what are you waiting for?

God Bless,



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.

Whole Latte Love

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



Rachelle Ayala does it again! She pulls me in from the very first paragraph. This is a true “opposites attract” story as Carina, who’s main focus is profits, tries to make Dylan, a philanthropist looking to help the homeless, into a new business man. As the two collide, they find themselves slowly falling in love.

This book is sure to keep you on your toes and wanting to keep reading until the very last word. As always, I loved reading this steamy, romantic book by Rachelle Ayala. It is an easy read and I finished it in just one night because once I started, I just couldn’t stop!

This book is great for those who are avid romance readers, those that dabble in it, or even those that usually don’t read romance novels due to it’s ability to draw the reader in from the start.  It is sexy, sweet, full of twists and turns, adventure, and drama. The perfect read for a night home alone or when relaxing in the tub. I highly recommend picking it up, or getting it for your e-reader to read.  It will not disappoint!


Book Description: 

Investment banking intern Carina Chen doesn’t need any distractions—especially the sexy, guitar-playing barista she rooms with for the summer.

Free spirit Dylan Jewell appreciates the delightful universe of women who vie for his attention. His goal in life is to do good, make happy coffee, and help the homeless.

When Carina moves in, she insists on rules of conduct to quell her instant attraction to Dylan. But when her boss asks her to turn Dylan into a businessman, she can’t think of a reason not to take advantage of his hospitality.

Their chemistry is white hot, but Dylan refuses to play Carina’s game, unable to understand how he can fall in love with a woman who puts profits in front of people. When Carina realizes Dylan isn’t budging, she risks all to gain a single night with him. Will her gambit backfire or will Dylan discover Carina’s true heart before she runs away with his?

Set in Berkeley, California, Whole Latte Love is an opposites-attract romance mixing bluesy rock music, hot, steamy love scenes, and financial shenanigans.

Speedy Losses

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



So we’ve talked about the benefits of using Garcinia Cambogia before, so I’m not going to go into great detail on the uses and benefits of it this time around, but I will give a quick summary for those who are enjoying Happy Homemaker for the first time.

Garcinia Cambogia works to:

  1. Reduced Cholesterol and Blood Pressure
  2. Boosts Immune System
  3. Ulcer Prevention
  4. Weight Loss- There are three ways Garcinia Cambogia works to help aid weight loss.

* Reduces Appetite

* Prevents Fat Storage

* Speeds up Metabolism


We have also talked about how to best choose a good product and how it works best paired with a good cleanse. Again, to paraphrase for those just reading this for the first time:

  1. Get a product that is 500 mg or higher.
  2. Make sure it is created with the Garcinia Cambogia extracts used in original clinical testing. (most will say if they are-if not, chances are they are not or you may need to do further investigation)
  3. Garcinia Cambogia made with 60% HCA is best.                                                                                                                                                                         *Beware those that say 65% HCA or more-labs have found that production of this concentration is unreliable and expensive. Even if produced at this formulation, the effective concentration in the final product will fall short. 60% is the recommended and reliable HCA amount that each of our capsules are formulated with.
  4. Find a product that  is free of contaminants, fillers, binders, or toxins.
  5. A product with calcium or potassium work best because those supplements help the garcinia cambogia absorb better.
  6. As always, make sure you choose a company that backs it’s product. Many offer a 100 day 100% guarantee. If a company isn’t willing to back it’s product-it likely isn’t pure and won’t reap the benefits that Pure Garcinia Cambogia can offer.


I have been studying and trying different products for a few months now, and I just started a new combination a few days ago and have already seen results. This power combo not only works to suppress hunger and boost metabolism, it does an overall cleanse on the body cleaning it of any and all toxins that are preventing the body from absorbing good nutrients and lose weight. Since starting Garcinia Cambogia Advanced and Slender Cleanse Advanced four days ago, I have lost about 4 pounds. That’s a pound a day! I can’t wait to see what the results are after a full month or two of taking it. (of course, that’ll have to wait for the sake of research…)

This combination is an all natural, veggie caps one-two power punch to fat. It has absolutely NO fillers, NO binders, NO artificial ingredients, and are gluten-free. It was specifically designed for those who need to or would like to lose more than ten pounds and do it effectively. It really controls hunger, enhances the metabolism, and cleans the system quickly and effectively.

Garcinia Cambogia Advanced/Slender Cleanse Advanced is the perfect combination for this time of year-with bikini season on our heals, hot days coming, park trips, fishing, nights out, beach visits-there has NEVER been a better time to try Garcinia Cambogia/Slender Cleanse Advanced than NOW!

It is only $29.95 for both products together (pricing is subject to change) making it super affordable compared to any other product that works this well or makes the claims this product does. And it truly reaps the benefits! Only four days in and I can’t wait to finish testing other products just so I can find out just how great the results I can get with these products is.

With their 100%, No questions asked refund policy, there really is nothing to lose-except for those excess pounds that is!! Keep reading for Where to buy!

Simple Grooming

Ever loaned your nail clippers to your husband to find them dull and hard to use after? Have you found it can be hard to cut thick nails with the regular sized clippers sold in stores?

Simply Essentials Nail Clippers are just the thing. They work great on all nails from “thin” to thick, toe nails or finger nails and are made of stainless steel and come with a one year money back guarantee. They come with a clipping catcher and an edge guard keeping you from needing to pick up clippings and over cutting your nails.

I had the opportunity to try these clippers and they were super easy to use and worked great. I didn’t even have to file afterwards because they offered such an even cut. They work great for my husband too-he uses them all the time.
