Frozen Lullaby

This Cd of Lullaby Renditions of Frozen is great! My kids have been having a hard time falling asleep, and ever since getting this and playing it at night they have been sleeping so much better! It is my daughter’s favorite songs and they are played so lightly and beautifully it makes sleepy time so much easier for her. My son also really likes this cd, so I use it to soothe him to sleep as well.

The songs are beautiful. They take the favorite Frozen songs and  use a soft melody and light percussion to create soothing and calming music. My daughter has said her favorites are “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” and also her all time favorite, “Let it Go”.  Not only do we listen to this before bed, we also take it with us in the car and the kids spend more time listening to the music than trying to kill each other. (or fight at least) It also has a way of putting them  to sleep on longer car rides so they get in a cat nap (or two) while we drive. I really like this cd and I know my kids do too!

Bio’Sensiya Rejuvenating MultiVitamin Night Time Serum



It’s inevitable, eventually we all age-no matter how much we fight it….Or so I thought at one point in time. I was ready to gracefully take on each year and each new line, dark circle, and fine line. Again, so I thought. I’ve been developing dark circles around my eyes for a pretty long time now, but the small lines around my eyes, as much as I coached myself and said when it happened it would be okay, WERE NOT okay. I needed to do something. I have been using a couple of serums and Hyaluronic Acid for quite some time, but none of them contained all of the nutrients needed to hydrate and pamper my skin all in one serum the way that this one does.

It has Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, Hyaluronic and Ferulic Acid, Retinol, and so much more in it. This has turned out to be the perfect serum for at night. I don’t have to use more than one serum, toner, or moisturizer (since it has Argan Oil in it as well) and it happens to be on the heavier side when first applied so it makes it the perfect night time candidate because I don’t mind having something a little heavier on my face at night compared to during the day. I have seen my fine lines diminishing (after extended use) and my skin tone is MUCH more toned and even and my pores are virtually shrinking before my eyes. My dark circles are beginning to diminish as well, which is a real added bonus. This definitely a high quality serum and definitely worth trying if you are in search of a great skin care product/night time serum.

Product Description:

  • Helps to support healthy skin function and maintain its firmness.
  • Appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin is diminished overtime while firmness and elasticity are enhanced.
  • 1.5% of Vitamin A (Retinol) enhances overall skin beauty, improves appearance of pigmentation, skin texture and tone, as well as boosts  skin hydration. Retinol is also effective at managing acne and eczema, as well as improving discolorations.15% Vitamins C, a powerful antioxidant, interrupts the free-radical damage process that causes skin to look and act older. It helps to maintain healthy, resilient skin, counteract wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production and reverses age-related damage to skin.
  • Ferulic acid (from rice bran oil) has strong antioxidant properties is excellent at neutralizing free radicals and acts as a great stabilizer of topical solutions containing Vitamin C.Vitamin D supports overall health of skin preventing moisture loss and outer layer to become thinner and more fragile.

Unwrap your youth. Rewind the power of time with minimal efforts for maximum results. Sweetsation Therapy’s philosophy is to create an individualized beauty strategy that answers your every need or desire. Bio’Sensiya MultiVitamin Night Time Serum is the key to this philosophy and essential step to always youthful new you.

Sleep Reward Charts



So I have three kids under six in my home, so sleep can be hard to come by, if you know what I mean. We tried everything to get a good routine, but the kids needed something visual. Insert the Good Night, Sleep Tight Reward Chart. I can’t believe how well it works! It has nine categories that may or may not apply to all families, but for us it was good. We don’t actually read before bed, but we do a prayer, so we just used that space for that and the kids knew where their sticker was supposed to go so it worked out well.

My two older kids (4, 5.5) are now going to bed for me a lot easier and stay in bed better. My son still comes into our room occasionally, but not as much as he had been and our daughter stays in bed until it’s time to get up better instead of getting up and playing instead. They love being able to place stickers on the chart and we have a special treat on weekends if they do well all five days on the chart. Many have said they wish it were a 7 day week, but we often have a different routine on weekends so it works well for our family. Even just a six day chart would be great. (“late night” Saturdays don’t have to go on there 😉 )

The pictures aren’t “high quality” so to speak, but they are colorful and get the message across, so for me it’s not a huge deal and the kids seem to like them. I like that the stars are used for the night time routine and then smileys are given for all the night accomplishments they make such as staying in bed all night or not calling out etc. While the stickers are reusable a couple of times, they aren’t completely reusable. But as far as stickers go, the fact they can be reused even a couple of times is better than only being able to use them once and then done. (they also offer replacement stickers-so it’s not a huge deal (or get some at the dollar store!)) Overall this was a great product and has really helped us get more sleep at night.


Product Description:

Sleep influences our entire family’s life and wellbeing. A good night’s sleep is important for every member of the family, it helps us to feel refreshed and full of energy. A night without enough sleep can leave us feeling exhausted and irritable impacting how we perform throughout the day.

For a parent, a restful evening and a good nights sleep can be determined by the sleep routine of their child. If there is no routine then it can make for a stressful family time. In addition to this, increasing evidence shows that sleep disruption is harmful to children’s learning, concentration and behavior. Therefore one of the most important things a parent/carer can do for their children is create a good bedtime routine. If this is something that hasn’t been instilled from a young age; then it can often prove quite a challenge!

Our Good Night, Sleep Tight reward chart provides a complete system to help parents and carers create that good, solid bedtime routine.

Our Good Night, Sleep Tight reward chart creates the perfect bedtime routine for children. It provides a step by step routine with tips and guidelines to help you give your child a healthy nights sleep.

Gold star stickers reward the pre-bedtime routine such as putting on pyjamas, brushing teeth, reading a bedtime book and getting into bed.

In the morning smiley face reward stickers acknowledge your child’s successful accomplishments from the night before, such as staying in their own bed, not calling out and falling asleep naturally.

Each pack contains:

• Large chart (17 inches high x 11 inches wide)

• 48 *reusable gold star reward stickers
• 130 *reusable colored smiley face reward stickers
• Supportive information sheet showing working example, tips and guidelines
• Dry erase pen
• Sticky mounting pads for the wall

NightFood Nutrition Bars


Many of us get them, those nagging late night hunger pangs–the kind that can happen at any time. Either we wake to desire food or we stay up late and need a little midnight snack.  But all those midnight snacks have to go somewhere, and as much as we hope, it isn’t all through out digestive system,  but often to our belly, hips, arms…well-you get the point.  So what can we do? Is there a way to still get those munchies taken care of while avoiding that spare tire around the tummy and eating healthy? Why yes, yes there is! And it is the NightFood Nutritional bars!

These bars taste absolutely amazing. They are cookies n’ cream flavored (called Cookies n’  Dreams) They are the perfect size for a decent snack and packed with protein so they are filling.  Now, I was super skeptical that these bars would do anything by way of making me sleepy or help me sleep better, but I decided to give them a try anyways. And boy, was I so wrong!

Within a few minutes of eating one of these bars one night I was feeling drowsy and relaxed. I was ready for a great nights sleep-and I had one! I didn’t just fall asleep easily, I stayed asleep all night and woke up refreshed. It worked better than the best melatonin I have ever taken. I slept well and my late night craving was satisfied all with one little nutrition bar.  While I don’t eat one of these a night, they are definitely great for the occasional late night snack before bed, especially when I know I have a lot to do the next day and need some really good sleep.  These bars get a two thumbs up from me and I definitely recommend giving them a try if you are typically a late night snacker or have a hard time getting asleep or staying asleep.


Product Description:

  • Satisfies After-Dinner Cravings on Fewer Calories
  • Keeps Your Diet on Track
  • Supports Better Sleep
  • No High Fructose Corn Syrup, No Artificial Colors or Flavors, No Hydrogenated Oils

Nighttime cravings…if you’re like most people, you wrestle with cravings after dinner on a regular basis.  Up until now, there have only been 2 options:

1.  Give in to your cravings, stuff your face with cookies, chips, or ice cream…and, live with the weight, disrupted sleep, and the guilt that those things bring

2.  Suck it up and reach for the carrot sticks or rice cakes, and feel unfulfilled and deprived.

Now, nighttime snackers go from having ZERO options to having the perfect option: NightFood.  Formulated to satisfy cravings on fewer calories and a healthier profile, while supporting better sleep, NightFood is the delicious after-dinner snack that allows you to feel satisfied without the guilt and the extra calories.

Don’t let nighttime cravings derail your diet. NightFood can help you lose weight, or maintain your weight, satisfying your cravings on fewer calories. NightFood is also formulated to support better sleep.

Maca Full Throttle

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



First of all, what is Maca?

Maca is a plant that grows in central Peru in the high plateaus of the Andes mountains. It has been cultivated as a vegetable crop in Peru for at least 3000 years. Maca is a relative of the radish and has an odor similar to butterscotch. Its root is used to make medicine. Maca is used for anemia,  chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); and enhancing energy, stamina, athletic performance, memory, and fertility. Women use maca for female hormone imbalance, menstrual problems, and symptoms of menopause  Maca is also used for weak bones (osteoperosis), depression, stomach cancer, leukimia, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, erectile dysfunction (ED), to arouse sexual desire, and to boost the immune system.

Other uses of Maca are (but not limited to):


  • Improving energy and athletic performance.
  • Improving memory.
  • Depression.
  • Female hormone imbalance.
  • Menstrual problems.
  • Tuberculosis.
  • Sexual problems.
  • Boosting the immune system.
  • AIDS.
  • Other conditions.




Now, I have a secret to tell. And please, don’t tell my husband. (because after months of writing, he hasn’t read one post yet 😉 ) I have been taking Maca for a couple of months now. I was having problems with my friend, and I apologize if this is too much information, but it was coming way too often and was so heavy I found myself wanting to stay in to avoid any embarrassments during that time.  And a sex drive? What was that? (and I know it says above it helps men’s sex drive-we’ll get to that in a few minutes)

After having my kids, my hormones have been way out of whack. Seriously-I have been up, I’ve been down, I have been so all over the place I couldn’t even catch up to myself, let alone expect my husband, kids, or friends to. And it’s messed with every part of my life from my monthly to my desire to be intimate with my husband. You get warned about PPD (Post Partum Depression) but what about all the other hormonal issues and changes that occur having a kid? Why in the world would they NOT tell us what to expect? I mean, seriously-did they expect us just to figure it out and not feel defective?

So, I started to search-Google most often-because my docs kept saying it was just me being “over tired” or exhausted-that it would work itself out. Only thing is-it didn’t. I found so many things, some were just dumb, claiming there is such a thing as the opposite of a nymphomaniac (Really? Maybe I was one of those….). Others just made me paranoid-like, did you know that ovarian cysts or even ovarian cancer can change your cycle, AND cause a loss of interest? Some actually made sense, they talked about hormones and lack of sleep and what they can do. And it’s not like I thought my doctors were completely wrong. But what they suggested was neither easy at the time, or working. (get 8-9 hours of sleep with a newborn in the house? What were they smoking?!)


I went through a year of being completely disinterested in intimacy, and it wasn’t just wearing on me, it was wearing on my marriage. So, I sucked it up. Insert, child number two. Once my second was born, not only was I not interested in intimacy (think of my poor husband!) but I was so irregular, my doctor gave me no choice but to go on birth control to get it regulated. Which, I may add, made the lack of interest so much worse.  A year and a half later and I was seeing no progress, so, I ditched the pills and decided I was better off just dealing with it.

Here comes kid three. (I would like to add, I sound disdainful-but I LOVE my children and this is more for dramatic, theatrical purposes than anything else!) This is where things got even worse. I not only was irregular, but I was getting my monthy, well, bi-monthly. Knowing from my last experience with irregularity they were most likely only going to suggest another dose of birth control, I decided to continue my search. (though, I did schedule an appointment with my doc for precaution)

You see that parenthesis up there? The one about scheduling an appointment? Here’s the kicker-I couldn’t get into my own doc for almost TWO months! Two months? C’mon-she delivered my child, but she didn’t have space to get me in for a recurring issue? Now, I do blame some of this on the new health care system-but that isn’t the purpose of my post. On top of my recurring monthly issues, I was feeling so in-intimate with my husband, we were lucky if I even let him touch me at all. (Yes, it was THAT bad)


A few weeks after I scheduled that appointment, I was online once again, hunting for answers. What I found this time would change things, and I had no idea how much.  I found Maca Full Throttle by Elite Gold Solutions and have been so happy with the results. I started taking this around the middle of April and I haven’t stopped since. I take just one a day with my breakfast and the results couldn’t have been more favorable. Within a week I noticed a difference in energy, my hormones were more balanced, and I haven’t had an irregular cycle since I started taking it.  My doctor had no idea why I was even meeting with her a few weeks ago. When I explained she just nodded and said “okay-well you’re looking good.” She then sent me on my way.

And the sex, yes, I should get into that just a LITTLE.  I actually want it. Thanks to my hormones now being in a good place and what one could assume is, well, mostly normal-I actually have a desire to be intimate. We even FLIRT. I haven’t flirted with him in so long, I feel like a teenager again. Like we are meeting for the first time all over again.  It seems that after a five year hiatus from what we remember as “normal” we now have a healthy love life and no matter what people think, it is important in keeping a marriage itself healthy.

And I have energy. I wake up energized and feeling like I can face the day without chugging down five cups of strong coffee or OD-ing on black tea. I am more prepared to face any situation with confidence, also with a lack of stress (which is nice!).  I can not be happier with the results I have gotten with Maca Full Throttle from Elite Gold Solutions. Without it, I may still be wondering what is wrong with me. Instead, I know I have hormone, and some sleep, issues and with the help of Maca I can control and reverse the effects of  hormonal imbalances.

I highly recommend this for anyone suffering from hormonal imbalances, intimacy issues, ED, or Irregularity. It can help level and help these issues, and only for the better.  I wish I had found it sooner-and I equally hope that it can help you with whatever your need is. It  is independently certified by a third-party lab to be free of soy, milk, wheat, gluten, eggs, and shellfish.  It is also made to contain no sugar, salt, starch, yeast,  corn,  milk, or preservatives, making it perfect for anyone, including those with allergies or diet restrictions.

5 HTP Neuro Transmitter Supplement

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


Do you ever wake up feeling tired, un-rested, stressed out, or  “on the wrong side of the bed?”   I am sure it has happened to the best of us. We all do what we can, of course. (Well, most of the time) We go to bed early, drink plenty of water (did you know dehydration affects sleep??), we eat healthy-no midnight snacks of cookies and milk!, and sometimes so much more. But, heaven knows, that isn’t always enough. We get stressed, we worry, and there’s the dreaded list making I know many people do-myself included. (is it just me, or did it get worse after having kids??)

With all of these feelings comes stress, mood swings, lack of memory, depression, sickness, sleeplessness, or an unhealthy appetite. (or stress eating)  So, what else can we do? How do we handle a poor nights sleep, stress, stress eating, or mood swings related to feeling stressed out or un-rested?  What do we do to regulate these “feelings” or symptoms?

Of course, we know all of the “obvious” ideas (some are even listed above…) but there is something we can do that maybe you didn’t know about, or just haven’t had any experience with.  It is a natural supplement called 5- HTP.


What is HTP? 

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a chemical by-product of the protein building block L-tryptophan. 5-HTP is a chemical compound that is naturally produced in your body as it makes serotonin, an important hormone for regulating your mood. Some doctors consider 5-HTP to be the best natural appetite suppressant. 5-HTP is also naturally produced in various plants, including the seeds of griffonia simplicifolia, a West African shrub. In addition to suppressing your appetite, there is some research that suggests that 5-HTP can also help treating headaches, insomnia, depression and fibromyalgia.

5-HTP works in the body by being converted into seratonin, which works in our system to enhance sleep, encourage good mood, suppressing “stress” hunger and enable healthy weight loss, and so many other things.  Doctors suggest taking a 5-HTP supplement instead of a serotonin supplement because 5-HTP can access the brain from the bloodstream, while serotonin cannot. In order to access the brain, chemicals and compounds will have to access the blood brain barrier, which grants access to the brain. Therefore, you would need to take a supplement that can cross that barrier, like 5-HTP, in order to increase serotonin levels in the brain. As serotonin levels increase your hunger diminishes and you feel satiated faster without feeling the need to restrict your food intake, you sleep better, and you find yourself experiencing less mood swings.



I had an opportunity to try this supplement actually. Specifically, I tried 5-HTP Neur0-Genius upgraded neuro-transmitter by Elite Gold Solutions.  I have noticed much better sleep. I no longer lie awake making lists or worrying about the hundreds of things that most likely are never going to happen. I have more energy and wake up more relaxed and can handle stress better without going “out of my mind.” (Like that ever happens!) My husband has noticed less “mood swings” (I have no idea what he is talking about!) and I have noticed a difference as well especially towards that time of the month. (every one appreciates that…)

I have had better focus, too. I have gotten more done in a shorter amount of time because I am getting less distracted by the ten things else I want to get done. (no more jumping from chore to chore) I am able to sit down (or stand up) and get one thing  done at a time without a nagging feeling that I need to do something else at the same time. The kids antics have stressed me out less lately too…Mostly E-man with his sensory issues. I am able to tackle his sensory issues head on without feeling so stressed out or equally irritated as I found was happening all too often. (a sad realization)




Like described above, 5-HTP by Elite Gold Solutions, like other HTP products works to promote restful sleep, positive mood, and even aid in appetite. I think that the naturally more restful sleep aids in that as well as it is easier to tackle any problem on good sleep. It reduces stress eating, those  fake hunger pangs (often brought on by under sleeping), and cravings. This product is great because it is also dairy, sugar, salt, yeast, shell fish, peanut, wheat, gluten, soy, and corn free so it caters to any diet, be it a soy free, gluten free, or vegetarian diet. It also caters to any common food allergies one may suffer from making it the perfect supplement for almost anyone.  If you have issues sleeping or find yourself stressing out easily, or even get chronic headaches, I highly recommend trying 5-HTC Neuro-Genius from Elite Gold Solutions!

iPurify Colon Cleanse

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


Each day we feed ourselves. We try to be healthy and make good choices, but inevitably, there are times when something not so great ends up in our mouth.  Sometimes, the foods we dearly love are the ones that are the worst for us. (but Ohhh so good!) Each of these things go to our stomach, work through our digestive tract, and sometimes it all comes out-and others, it clogs our ever delicate colon causing all sorts of issues. Some of which include, constipation, bloating, headaches, fatigue, and others.

The good news is, there are ways we can help keep our digestive system running well and clean as a whistle. There are a few ways to do this without an “outside aid” . In that list is included  eating healthy and cutting out too much gluten, dairy, or sugars. Another way is getting exercise and drinking lots of water (at least 8 glasses a day if not more to accommodate activity level etc). You can also do a water or juice fast or take a colon cleanse.

Colon cleanses are shown to do ten things. (or more!) They are:

  • Makes the digestive system more effective

As the colon is cleansed, it pushes undigested waste through your system, clearing the way for good nutrient absorption. If waste remains in the body for too long, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and illness. A clean colon from a colon detox allows undigested waste to pass easily through your system.

  • Maintains regularity and prevents constipation

Constipation can causes a slow digestive response, which in turn leaves waste in the system longer. This increases the chances that toxins will be released into the bloodstream. It is also a cause of other illnesses and irritations, such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins.

  • Increases Energy

Releasing the toxins from your body is rejuvenating because it refocuses the energy usually used for forcing waste through your intestines to other parts of your body. People who have undergone colon detoxification say they have better blood circulation, more restful sleep and a boost in energy.

  • Increases absorption of vitamins and nutrients

A colon that has been cleansed allows only water, vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream, rather than releasing toxins and bacteria through the colon walls. When the colon is detoxified,it clears the way for essential nutrients to filter into your body unobstructed.

  • Improves Concentration

Poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption can cause you to become distracted and lose your concentration. The buildup of mucous and toxins in your colon can keep your body from getting what it needs to function, even if you eat a consistently healthy diet. Cleansing the colon with a detox diet can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus. This has far-reaching ramifications for work, your relationships and your overall health.

  • Kick-Starts Weight Loss

Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fiber choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter.

Colon cleansing has the potential to aid weight loss; some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over the course of a month. The average human colon weighs about four pounds empty and can hold up to eight meals’ worth of food before digestion finally occurs. A colon cleansing can result in significant weight loss and kick-start your metabolism, as well as refocus your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.

  • Decreases Risk of Colon Cancer

All the toxins that you eat, drink, breathe in and absorb through your skin end up being processed by your gastrointestinal system and liver. If they are not forced from your colon and liver as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body’s systems. By releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract.

  • Increases Fertility

Colon cleansing, as well as increased fiber intake and healthy food choices, improves regularity and helps keep your weight under control. Fat is estrogen-based, and if too much is present, becoming pregnant becomes more difficult. A colon that is weighed down by years of buildup can also press on the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs in women, causing strain.

Colon cleansing rids the body of many chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm. Many naturopaths recommend that both partners undergo colon cleansing before attempting pregnancy.

  • Maintains pH balance in the bloodstream

Foods that cause colon blockages are acid-forming — particularly high-protein diets without enough fiber. This leads to general malaise in the body. The tissue of the colon eventually becomes diseased and inflamed, reducing the colon’s ability to do its job, which is to allow only water, minerals and vitamins to pass into the bloodstream. If yeasts, molds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or fecal material enter the bloodstream and connected tissue, the body’s pH will be thrown out of balance.

  • Improves overall well being

Ridding the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of colon buildup can lead to feelings of lightness, strength and overall good health.



I have spent some time researching different colon cleanses to find the perfect ones. And right up at the top is iPurify Colon Cleanse.  Unlike some of it’s competitors, it doesn’t leave me running to the bathroom for the first few days of the cleanse, but it also doesn’t leave me constipated either.  From the first day it works to promote a natural, regular BM schedule without any of the undesirable effects some of the other cleanses sometimes offer. It is an all natural supplement that you take once a day with a meal, so it is easy to remember and no need to take it three to four times a day like some cleanses not only recommend, but sometimes even “require” to reach the fullest effect.

If you have ever tried a cleanse that was an “aggressive” one, you have experienced the cramps, running to the bathroom, remembering to take pills, and uncomfortable feelings that come with them. iPurify is not like that! It works great, and you can tell your system is cleaning out-but there is no cramping or bathroom runs. I have actually been more regular than ever, such as I wake up and my body is ready to flush and then in the afternoon after a meal as well. (Sorry if that is just too much info!)

Since starting to take iPurify Colon cleanse, I have lost about three pounds (I have taken it just over a week regularly) and feel more energetic than before. I have been sleeping better, giving me more energy, and feel overall more healthy than before. I am actually considering doing a four day water cleanse just to really clean out my system and continue to use iPurify during that time to really kick my digestive system into fine shape.  It is a great cleanse for a cleansing newbie because it won’t shock your system (or YOU!!) and it will work great without making you uncomfortable. That being said, it is also great for those who cleanse regularly as it does provide a comfortable cleanse while making you feel more refreshed and encouraging better sleep.

Bedphones-Never Stop the Music

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



Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and have a hard time getting back to sleep? Do you need music or white noise to even fall asleep-but have a partner who prefers the silence? I have the perfect solution for you, and your partner.

They are called Bedphones. They are an innovative, slim headphones that fit snugly enough to stay on while you sleep, but comfortably so they don’t interrupt sleep. They fall flat, so you feel practically nothing between your head and your pillow, even if you are on your side.  I have absolutely loved having these headphones. (or BEDphones rather!) I have been able to listen to the music I love without waking or bothering my husband’s sleep.



These head phones are thin (1/4″ thick) and fall flat on my ears so they are comfortable whether I am on my back or my side. (or even my stomach)  They are designed in a way I can wear them to the front or the back (cord) so I can wear them with the cord in the back while I sleep (to avoid choking) or forward when I am out and about or walking/running. Not only do they fit great-but they look chic and modern making them the perfect accessory for any phone/mp3 player. (or iPod) They also stay snug and fit great even during exercise, making them the perfect pair of headphones to wear at the gym or when working out at home.



Bedphones come with an optional inline microphone which is great for those that want to wear them for all day wear on top of for when they are sleeping. It can play, pause, skip songs, and answer phone calls making it the most convenient single button remote for headphones.  The microphone works great and those I have talked to while wearing these phones have heard me clearly without any background noise. This remote is extremely convenient when out because it takes one push of the button to answer the phone and talk to the person calling. It is easy to use and isn’t bulky or heavy on the cord.



Each pair of bedphones come with this satin eye mask. It is soft and silky and fits great. It is perfect for long car/bus rides or plane trips. It is also great for napping or to keep out the morning light so you can sleep a bit longer on non-workdays or weekends.  This eye mask fits super comfortably and has been  great for mornings when my hubby has to get up before me and needs the light. (no more waking up early-meaning better sleep!) I absolutely love this mask for car rides that are during the day because they effectively block out the light, but don’t weigh down so napping/sleep comes easy.



Each pair of Bedphones comes with this convenient carrying case and replacement bud covers (considering eventual wear and tear). This case is a sturdy case with a soft exterior. It holds everything from the headphones to the satin mask and extra ear buds making it convenient to take anywhere anytime. For ladies, it is even small enough to fit in a purse making it even easier to take along. The netting inside holds everything snug and safe, so even if you accidentally drop the case, your Bedphones will not break and nothing will fall around in it.



These headphones not only have great, clear sound-but Bedphones even offers an application that will gradually turn down your headphones so that by the time morning comes you will hear your alarm when it goes off. This is a genius idea simply because if you are still listening to music when your alarm goes off in the morning, there is the “slim” chance you won’t hear it over your music, or it won’t be drastic enough of a different sound to wake you when you need to get up and go.


These headphones are great for light sleepers, music lovers, even runners/walkers, and people on the go because they are so comfortable and diverse. They provide great sound for day or night and offer options that other headphones can not. (such as the ability to dim sound etc.)  Because of the way they are designed, they can fit any person of any size and fit comfortably as well. They adjust to fit perfectly.  When you purchase Bedphones, you are purchasing the last pair of headphones you will ever need. They are perfect for any situation or lifestyle.  They work with any smart phone, cell phone, computer, or iPod/mp3 player.



Product Description:

  • At less than 1/4″ thick, these soft, foam-covered sleep headphones are THE THINNEST IN THE WORLD. The on-ear design lies so flat, Bedphones practically disappear between your ears and the pillow, helping you fall asleep faster
  • Our earhooks are made from gentle, rubber-coated memory wire, INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE for a custom fit. Wear the cable down your back and tighten with the cable slider to keep Bedphones secure all night

Our single-button remote is compatible with most smartphones and allows you to answer phone calls, play, pause, and skip music tracks without touching your phone
  • Because Bedphones lie against your ear without entering the ear canal, they are the PERFECT ALTERNATIVE TO UNCOMFORTABLE EARBUDS

Bedphones are compatible with all devices that accept a standard headphone plug. Add our optional in-line microphone with single-buttom remote to answer phone calls, play, pause, and skip music tracks without touching your phone.

Raspberries and Burning Fat

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



Rasberries-they taste good on salads or as a snack (with chocolate!!), the smell amazing in perfumes and body washes, and make a great flavored iced tea or lemonade.  But did you know they are also great for weight loss? More accurately, Raspberry Ketones aid in weight loss. Raspberry Ketone is a natural compound that is the primary aroma compound found in red raspberries.

Scientists found that raspberry ketone prevented the high-fat-diet-induced elevations in body weight and the weights of the liver and visceral adipose tissues. It also decreased hepatic triacylglycerol content increased by a high-fat diet. Other studies have shown raspberry keytone increased the breakdown of lipids (fat molecules) within fat cells. The 2010 paper in the journal Planta Medica also found raspberry ketone spurred fat cells to secrete more of the protein adiponectin. Low levels of adiponectin in the body are more common among  people who are obese, and those with type 2 diabetes.

While there is not a ton of research done about Raspberry Ketone, many have doted it’s effectiveness in helping their weigtht loss by increasing their metabolism and suppressing their hunger. So, I tried them for myself.  I specifically tried Pure Body Naturals Pure Raspberry Ketone. I can’t write to you today and say I lost pound after pound of weight. I did drop about 4 pounds in the first couple of weeks I used it, but unlike some of the advertisements, I didn’t experience “fat melting off.” However, I was able to eat less without suffering cravings, because it did help curb my appetite and even on days I over ate I could tell the Raspberry Ketone was working on my behalf because I didn’t suffer the “day after” weight gain that often happens after a day of eating badly.  (yay for metabolism!)

Even though I wasn’t watching the pounds melt away, I was watching my eating habits changing, and I was still losing weight a healthy amount at a time with little to no physical activity required. I have felt more energetic and healthy, and have been able to do more with my kids because of all the new energy I have been given. I have been sleeping better too! Doing more and sitting less while eating better has really helped me sleep better. I can’t say that would have happened without Pure Body Naturals Raspberry Ketone.

I can not promise fast or even extensive weight loss, but I can say if you try these Ketones, you will see a difference in appetite and energy and will end up feeling better in the long run. I highly recommend these to anyone looking to feel better and for that little bit of help to take a step in the right direction. It may not be the cause of the weight loss I have seen or will see in the near future, but it definitely is the change I have needed to work toward those goals and feel better overall.

The Snores of Life



Snoring. It’s a common problem among children and adults alike, and it can be caused by all sorts of things. It also can be the cause of long term problems-both in health, and in relationships. (I mean, what happy couple is an un-rested couple? LOL)  So what causes snoring?

Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is physically obstructed. Air flow can be obstructed by a combination of factors, including:

  • Obstructed nasal airways: Some people snore only during allergy seasons or when they have a sinus infection. Deformities of the nose such as a deviated septum (a structural change in the wall that separates one nostril from the other) or nasal polyps can also cause obstruction.
  • Poor muscle tone in the throat and tongue: Throat and tongue muscles can be too relaxed, which allows them to collapse and fall back into the airway. This can result from deep sleep, alcohol consumption, and use of some sleeping pills. Normal aging causes further relaxation of these muscles.
  • Bulky throat tissue: Being overweight can cause bulky throat tissue. Also, children with large tonsils and adenoids often snore.
  • Long soft palate and/or uvula: A long soft palate or a long uvula (the dangling tissue in back of the mouth) can narrow the opening from the nose to the throat. When these structures vibrate and bump against one another the airway becomes obstructed, causing snoring.


We have a snoring problem in our house. My husband snores, I snore, we snore together, and sometimes we snore one at a time because the one is keeping the other awake. (I am often on the receiving end of that one-the joy of staying up later lol) It got to a point  something needed to be done. Sleep was needed.

Then I found SnoreStop. SnoreStop is a company dedicated to helping people stop snoring and sleep better. Snoring happens in three places, the nose, the back of the throat, and the mouth. Snore stop offers products to address each of these areas to best treat the issue of snoring. As recommended, we tried the Starter Kit. It comes with each of the products and it’s purpose is to find the product that best addresses the issue and make sure you get the right product(s)  in the future.  The three methods they use to get snoring at the source is Pill form (mouth), Nasal Spray (nose), and a Spray (throat/mouth).

Although we both tested the products, I can’t say how they personally worked for me-though I can say I woke less and slept better. So, I will tell you how it worked for my husband instead. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. And with great prices and no need for an Rx this is the  perfect solution for anyone who snores or has a spouse who snores because it really works, is easy to use,  and it is affordable.  ($12.99-$19.99)


The first method we tried were the Chewable Tablets. This form addresses the mouth and back in the throat by shrinking swollen soft tissues that block air passages. This method really worked for my husband-his snoring was greatly diminished. It wasn’t gone completely, but it was quieter in intensity and was not as bad. Although they work, I recommend drinking a glass of water with or after chewing these. They aren’t the best tasting-but the best working solutions sometimes come at a small price, which is in this case taste.

When we used these, I slept better and even though I went to bed after my husband, his snoring was suppressed enough it was easy to fall asleep and I was able to stay asleep because neither his or my snoring woke me up mid night.



The next method we tried was the Naso Spray. It is an oil free nasal spray designed to temporarily help snorers with symptoms that are associated with blocked nasal passages due to post-nasal drip, common colds, or allergies. It helps open nasal passages and clear sinus congestion by drying mucus build up.

This form was very affective for both myself and my husband. We both were able to sleep well and there were no complaints of snoring on either side. I believe this was the form that helped us both the best. We have yet to try it in conjunction with the chewables, but I think that with those and the naso spray together  our snoring symptoms would be next to zero.



The last form of SnoreStop we used was the Extinguisher. This form addresses back of the throat and the mouth just as the chewables do, but didn’t have “long term” results for us so to speak. This form could work great for someone else, so don’t think because it wasn’t best for us it won’t be for you or your loved one. The whole idea of the Starter Kit is to figure that out.

It stopped my husbands snoring for about an hour, but when I was ready for bed and went in, it had worn off and I needed to wake him to try something else.


Although not all of the products were right for us, it was great finally finding what works for us and we can finally sleep in the same bed without rolling each other over, tapping each other awake for a moment of silence, or laying awake because the snoring is too loud. I have really enjoyed using SnoreStop, it has made it easier to sleep, is easy to use, and has helped our marriage because we aren’t over tired from constant snores. It has also helped keep my throat from hurting. I often woke up with a sore, dry throat in the morning, now my throat feels great and I am getting much needed rest.  Of course, it also helps sleep because neither of us are being kept up by the sound of the others snores. A well rested couple, is a happy couple!




Product Description:

Snoring occurs in three locations: the mouth, the back of the throat, and the nose. The Starter Kit includes a specific product to target each location. The Starter Kit will help you determine where your snoring occurs and which product(s) to use. The SnoreStop® Starter Kit is an innovative and simple way to help you and your partner identify where your snoring occurs – in other words, what causes your snoring. We know from our long experience in the snoring business (since 1995) that one product cannot work for everyone. Why? Not everyone snores for the same reason! Use a different SnoreStop product each night to see which one works best for you! Online exclusive not yet sold in stores.
