Rediscovering Me

Rediscovering Me –
I can’t believe how much I’m looking forward to this either… the ‘meals’ and drinks… it’s like my body is waking back up after a semi-coma slumber. As though I have been moving through sludge… struggling to get out but clueless as to how, and now I’ve begun the process of climbing out of that pit with a set plan and the proper set of tools to actually do it.

I CAN’T WAIT!!! WooHoo!!! 🙂 Continue reading

Little Red Has More To Say

Writing about this is not easy. I abhor opening myself up to these thoughts, feelings, memories. I’m dreading sleep… Continue reading

These little pills could be the best thing you ever use

I used to be on the look-out for anything that could help me lose weight, and keep it off. I am a consultant with a company that does that wonderfully, but I thought I’d try adding these all natural weight-loss pills, Caralluma Fimbriata, when they became available to try at a discounted price.
It is an appetite suppressant made of pure Caralluma Fimbriata extract.

Here is what I liked about these pills:

  • Easy to use… You just take 2 of the 1000mg pills every day.
  • You only take them ONCE a Day
  • There are 60 capsules in the bottle, meaning you get a whole month’s supply of these bad boys
  • Suppressed my appetite
  • No nasty herby smell & taste when you take the pills
  • Made in the USA (I love buying items that are from home grown businesses)

Now, like I said… I already do a type of lifestyle diet that helps me lose weight, cuts down on the fat storage, and gives me massive amounts of energy all day long with no burn out.
I don’t plan on stopping that because it does work so well, and why mess with one of the best things that has ever happened to me?
So I honestly cannot tell you how these pills helped with those points.
I didn’t notice any added energy, but a friend of mine who was taking these pills at the same time did. She LOVES them!
I do have an issue with carbs though, and I think these pills helped a lot with blocking the carbs. I just can’t say no to them for more than 10 days…. I’m addicted. LOL 🙂
For the things I did state above, I love it! I love how it does suppress my appetite so that even though I am eating healthy foods, I’m not overloading on them like usual.
Also, when I do happen to eat some carbs, ie. bread for sandwiches, I didn’t notice the usual back-lash that I normally experiance.

I did not find any faults with these pills. They seem to work just as well as the seller stated they would.

Here is what the Schwartz Bioresearch says about the ‘Caralluma Fimbriata’:

  • MAXIMUM STRENGTH CARALLUMA FIMBRIATA: Our weight loss supplement is a 10:1 caralluma fimbriata extract manufactured with the purest ingredients, which makes it a more potent dietary supplement than other standard variants. Schwartz Bioresearch’s is a 1000mg formula manufactured with 100% natural ingredients and the highest quality manufacturing processes.

  • POWERFUL APPETITE SUPPRESSANT FOR WEIGHT LOSS: You can burn belly fat with our potent Caralluma Fimbriata 1000mg. These diet pills were recently featured on TV because they work suppressing your appetite, a fast weight loss. Your energy levels will increase too, the best way to get slim fast.

  • MADE IN USA: Our Caralluma Fimbriata is Manufactured in the USA in a FDA-registered, state-of-the-art facility, with strict adherence to good manufacturing practices (GMPs). Every batch is third party tested to ensure the ingredients are safe, pure and potent.

My take away is that this is a great product, but be careful to read everything the seller says about this product, especially all the ingredients.
I do believe that these are truly great weight-loss pills for those that want a hassle free way to lose weight without spending a lot of money. Just be sure to exercise while using them. 😉

To Sleep On White Fluffy Cloud

I am constantly on the look-out for a top quality pillow. My husband and I both suffer from lower back pain and, sadly, the quality pillows do not last as long as we would like. The best pillow I ever had was one I bought from my Chiropractor, and unfortunately I can’t get them from him any longer.
So my search continued….
And then, the opportunity came to buy the Zen Bamboo® Hypoallergenic Memory Foam Pillow in a king size. It is a shredded Memory-Foam pillow of top hotel quality that comes with a ‘Bamboo Removable Cover’.

Here is why I LOVE this pillow:

  • Easy to use (Seriously… you just put a pillow covering over it if you want, or use it as it)
  • Made with excellent materials
  • I LOVE big pillows!!!
  • It feels like your sleeping on a cloud!!!
  • TOTAL relaxation with this pillow!
  • Eliminated any stress I had to my neck, shoulders, and back
  • It stays a cool temperature
  • It’s contoured so that it fits your head PERFECTLY!
  • Made with shredded memory foam…. I seriously want to kiss the person that came up with this stuff.
  • It’s machine washable … AND… It doesn’t lose its shape afterwards!!!


I had the flu recently, a doozy of one, and I had the most horrendous headache, chills followed the sweats, my whole body ached like it was one big bruise … but this pillow … This fabulous, amazing pillow helped ease the tension I felt throughout my body when I was lying in bed because of the way it helped to support my neck and head. And the pillow stayed cool!!! It felt soooo good against my head.
Honestly, I can’t wait at the end of the day to lay down in bed because of the way it feels.
I did not find any faults with this fabulous, amazing, wonderful pillow.
Can you tell I love this pillow?

Here is what the Zen Bamboo® says about the ‘Zen Bamboo® Pillow’:

  • TOP-NOTCH FABRIC: 60% Microfiber and 40% Bamboo from Rayon
  • ULTIMATE LUXURY – Get ready for the best sleep of your life! The Zen Bamboo® Pillow is crafted in premium memory foam, providing you with peaceful slumber and extreme luxury. It offers gentle support that eliminates pressure and allows your muscles to fully relax, relieving neck, back and shoulder pain.
  • STAYS COOL & COMFORTABLE -Using breathable material that allows for increased airflow, you will be cool and comfortable throughout the night! It won’t trap any heat allowing you to sleep deeper with less interruption.
  • CONTOURED DESIGN – Our contoured design cradles and conforms to your head perfectly and comfortably. And rest assured that our pillow will never flatten! It is perfect for all sleeping positions: side, back, and stomach!
  • HYPOALLERGENIC & DUST MITE RESISTANT- Our premium pillow helps to ease to asthma, allergies and other respiratory conditions by blocking allergens and dust mites while you sleep! Plus, it is MACHINE WASHABLE.

But in all honesty, ,y take away is that this is a great product, but (as always) be careful to read everything the seller says about this product. They do offer a guarantee, but I doubt you’ll ever need it.

This pillow will change the way you sleep. Seriously… if I had the money right now to buy everyone I know one of these pillows, I would.

How do you protect your Comforter?

I bought this as a possible bedding solution to the wear that my multiple dogs put to my comforter (and in the winters, down quilt), and because I love the feeling of soft sheets.
I honestly had never even thought of this before, and I don’t think I’ve actually heard of this type of product before it showed up in the review group I belong to.

Let me run down a few reasons why I like the Duvet Bedding Set:

  • It was super easy to use and the instructions were extremely clear on how to use the duvet cover.
  • The two Pillow Shams were very easy to use and cover the pillows with.
  • I liked the tone of the colors available.
    Here’s a few of the ones I liked:

    • Sage Green
    • Chocolate Brown
    • Taupe Sand
  • The texture of the cover and the pillow sham coverings are incredible.
    My autistic 7yr old comes in to lay down and just runs his hands over the duvet covering because of the softness.
  • The color is not harsh, but goes wonderfully with the color scheme in my room.
    I think any color would work well, as they are beautifully made with wonderful colors, but muted so as not to take away from the bedroom scheme.
  • Extremely easy to wash, and dry.
  • I mentioned dogs earlier… this has helped wonderfully with keeping the shedding off the bed, and keeping the bedding nice beneath.
  • I love how they are packaged! So easy to open and remove the products, and store them again when changing them out.
  • They come in more than one size. You can get a set in King (which I own) all the way down to Twin!  I’ve even seen Cali-King in the sizes!

Honestly, I could not find a fault with this product.
Unless the desire to own more could be considered a ‘Con’.  😉 My kids are even begging for their own sets in full and twin sizes.

Here is what the company says about the Nestl Bedding Duvet Cover:

  • Luxury Soft Duvet Cover. Simply slip it over your comforter, duvet insert, or alternative down comforter sets. The Duvet Cover is very useful, it will protect your comforter and is super easy to remove and wash.

  • King size luxury duvet cover 3pc set measures 104″ x 90″ inches. With button closure. Includes 2 pillow shams 20″ x 36″ inches with a 1 1/2 inch flange. Also available in California king, queen, full, twin sizes.

  • This luxury bedding collection is made of the highest quality double brushed microfiber strong linen for years to lasts. Fabulous selection of vibrant dyed yarn solid colors will make your bedroom look like a celebrity home.

  • Special easy care. Fade, stain, shrink and wrinkle resistant. Machine washable in cold, dries quickly on tumble dry low temperature. Hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, environmental friendly and resistant to dust mites. Microfiber material is cool and breathable and more durable than cotton.

To me, the overall quality is top notch. I love that the product stands up to their claims.
The way the product was shipped was perfect for keeping it undamaged.
It appears to be well made, and will hold up to its intended use. Washing instructions are clear and precise.

I will be adding pictures at a later date. I was unable to upload them at this time.

Book Light is just AMAZING, and then some!

Be ForeWarned!!!! When you receive this product it is in a little box.

When I saw it I thought, “WOW…. I got gypped! That box is waaaaay too little.”

Then, I opened it and was I surprised. Inside that ‘ittle, bittle, teeny, weeny box was a treasure!


#2, regular sized, Pencil added for comparison.

That treasure being, the LED Book Light.

It comes with an USB cable, and AC charger. (Gotta love when the charger is included and not just the cable… I get seriously annoyed when they don’t include the charger.)



The seller states this about the BOYON Eye Care Book Light:

  • Protects eyes.Natural and Non-flickering light. The LED lights provide soft light that is perfect for reading.

  • Long lasting, rechargeable battery, long-life ultra-bright LEDs and 5 brightness levels.This unique lamp also comes complete with a USB cord and wall outlet for charging versatility. And it will charge fully in 3 hours and will operate for up to 12 hours without recharging.

  • The adjustable, dual arm, gooseneck design allows for easy light adjustment!Just bend each light to your desired angle and position. The sturdy clamp is very strong and features adjustable grip allowing a secure placement on a range of different surface thicknesses.

  • This BOYON light is very small & convenient making it the perfect tool for those on-the-go: such as students, travelers, drivers, etc. …One need only clip the base of the light and adjust arms and brightness as desired. And the base can also be used as a stand for lights on flat surfaces.

  • Our goal is 100% satisfaction.If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us directly. No question is too small.

To me, that last statement is the all-important one.
Sure…. We love that it protects our eyes as avid book readers.
We love that it is long-lasting AND rechargeable.
We love that it’s totally adjustable, because really… when is a lamp ever “just right”?
And of course, being small and easy to take where-ever is truly important… You never know when you’re going to find that perfect place to read, or when it’s going to be a long wait time.
BUT….. 100% satisfaction????
NO Question is too SMALL?
That’s what I, an avid reader at night, love to hear from a company.

I could not find a Con.
No, seriously… I couldn’t find one. I have left this book light in the hands of my 11 yr old son, and his 7yr old brother, for 14 days and it’s still looking and working great.
My 11yr old uses it to read every night before bed…. I’ve only had to recharge it once!

The Pros:
* It truly is long-lasting!

* Who doesn’t LOVE something that is so versatile and easy to use?!?

*It folds up so small! You can pack it in a purse if needed! (I have)

*The light is soooo bright, and with TWO positional lights you get total coverage of the pages so that you’re not stressing your eyes.

* I’ve used it as a night light for my youngest when his night light wasn’t working. Yes… It does clip to almost EVERY thing.

*It has a durability that just amazes me.

*I may have to buy a second one.
( Ok… this isn’t so much a “Pro” as it is an opinion…. but something that proves its-self to me in such a way that I consider buying a second one says a lot about the product.)

To me, the overall quality is wonderful for this little (itty-bitty) LED book light. It lives up to claims made by the seller. The way the product was shipped by Amazon was perfect for keeping it nice and undamaged.
I highly recommend this to anyone that reads at night or in low lighted areas.

Okay… now for the part I have to state…

The BEST feeling in the world, for me, has always been when my kids do something sweet for another person.
So I was totally thrilled when my son came over to my desk today and set his pizza pie toy set down and said: “Pizza time Mom. Take a break.” Continue reading
