Basketball Madness


So March Madness is here and that means its Mucus Madness!  Mr. Mucus is all ready for the tournaments. He is going to be rooting for his favorite team.  Duke of course! Mr. Mucus is a true fan so of course, he has to have his own Duke jersey! He thinks he looks really cool in it too.  20190323_141547


He is a die-hard Duke fan because he grew up near Durham, North Carolina where Duke University is located and attended many basketball games there and became a huge fan years ago.  Mr. Mucus will always be a Duke fan!

One of the places that Mr. Mucus loves to watch the games is in his big recliner in his den with all his “snotty” buddies.  He gathers all his favorite snacks around him and sets in for a time of good games and “high fives” as he roots on Duke. You can hear almost hear him all over the neighborhood shouting “Go Duke!”

Caring For My Family (During Cold & Flu Season)


One child walks in and starts sneezing and coughing and before you know it, the whole house has the plaque!  Sound familiar? I go into denial at first. I think “oh, it’s just allergies” but before long, this child has managed to infect the whole house and before the sun comes up the next morning, we all have a fever, runny noses, sore throats and have gone through every box of tissues in the house.  Sure enough, it’s cold and flu season! It happens every year and every year I stock up on products that I know will help bring my family relief. A couple of the products that I used for my family in the past couple of weeks have been Mucinex Sinus-Max (Day & Night) and Children’s Mucinex Night Time Multi-Symptom Cold.

Some other ways I like to care for my family are making sure that they stay hydrated and drink plenty of water.  It is important to stay hydrated when sick because vomiting and diarrhea can cause dehydration, leading to dizziness, headaches, or even hospitalization in severe cases. When you are sick you often have symptoms such as a runny nose or sweating, which can also contribute to you losing water. When sick, your body temperature tends to increase.

I also l love to make my family their favorite comfort foods and chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese are some foods that they always request when they are down with a cold or the flu. Since I am often a victim of sickness myself and exhausted, it’s so easy to make chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese too!  


When you have a family, you just have to be prepared for anything and sickness is definitely one of those things but knowing I can count on Mucinex and my creative methods, I am going to make sure my family is always taken care of!

Frost Fitness (Staying Fit During The Winter)

When the cold weather sets in, I tend to want to hibernate and abandon my fitness routine.  I am just not a cold weather person and unfortunately, I will skip the gym and stay home. But you know what?  It may be cold and miserable outside and I have learned that staying fit doesn’t mean I have to spend hours at the gym every day.  There are so many ways to stay fit right in the comfort of my own home!

I several things at home that I have been using since it has been cold outside to help keep me fit and healthy.  I have a jump rope, ab roller, floor foot pedal exerciser and I have been practicing Yoga on my Yoga mat! On days when I see the sun peeking out, I am out briskly walking trying to soak up all the Vitamin D that I can get too.  So, you know what I am doing this winter? I am going to arm myself with some coping strategies. While everyone else is scrambling to stick to their New Year’s resolutions, I’ll be coasting along, wondering why everyone is stressing about warmer weather.  All it takes is a few simple fitness strategies to get you through the winter months!

Holiday Looks & Trends

#ad Brrr…It’s winter and I just don’t like the cold weather at all!   But you know what? Just because it is cold outside doesn’t mean I can’t look amazingly good!  With winter, comes the holidays and I love rockin’ it out with some dazzling red lipstick, eyeshadow, and blush.

Something else that makes me feel good during the winter and especially during the holidays, is making my nails stand out with glitter nail polish!  I am a “hand talker” and my nails are a way to express myself and this is one of my favorite trends during the winter.

Ammiy 12 Pc. Makeup Brush Set


It’s not just the quality of your makeup you have to worry about.  You also have to have good makeup brushes.  I personally think you can buy makeup at a high-end makeup counter and look like a clown if you don’t have good brushes.2017-01-21_2357  You can also buy makeup at a drugstore and if you use the right brushes, you can look like a Makeup Maven.2017-01-21_2359
I love this 12 piece Ammiy makeup brush set.  I have the pleasure of owning the 24 piece set as well and I have to say this set is just as nice and the quality is excellent. I don’t know what it is with most of these brush sets and cases but they do need to be aired out when they first arrive.   I always wash my brushes before using them and wash them often to keep bacteria from building up.
The set comes with a soft off white, almost tan color, storage pouch.2017-01-19_1725_002 Every brush is soft against your face and does not shed. The brushes that are included are
1. Powder blush brush
2. Angle Contour Brush
3. Foundation Brush
4. Large Eyeshadow brush
5. Smudge Brush
6. Flat Eyebrow brush
7. Angle eyebrow brush
8. Lip brush
9. Eyeliner Brush
10. Sponge Eye Shadow Brush

So you can see there are so many things you can do with these makeup brushes and the right brushes can mean the difference between a flawless face and  looking like a clown!

Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract – 180 Capsules – 80% HCA – Best Weight Loss Supplements – Healthy Digestive System – Natural Appetite Suppressant – 100% Money Back Guarantee – Order Risk Free!


You know it’s time to do something about your weight when you’re wearing a towel and standing on the scales and you think “hmm this towel must weight more than I thought it did”. The struggle is real.
I’m 50 and it’s like I have just woke up and realized that I have packed on the pounds over the past few years. Honestly, I think I have just been ignoring it and thinking that I will start doing something about it tomorrow or next week but that never came. What really made me realize that I needed to start NOW was when I was babysitting my four year old great nephew recently and I just couldn’t keep up with him and it wasn’t because of my age. I’m 50 but not an antique. I was short of breath because of the extra weight I was packing around.
I wanted to try this Garcinia Cambogia because it seems to be all the rave on the TV talk shows and some of the famous Doctors are even endorsing it. I was hesitant because I have tried other supplements in the past but it was a waste of money but I think out of desperation for a healthier lifestyle, my decision was made to try this Garcinia Cambogia. After I receive it, I really wasn’t sure what 80 % HCA really was but I found out the high percentage of HCA the better appetite suppressant. I also found out that some Garginia Cambogia supplements have only 40 – 60 % and then there are some that have more, like 95 % so I guess this 80 % is in a good range. I started taking two tablets twice a day like the directions stated. I could not tell much different in my appetite at all the first three days or so but by the fifth day I was noticing that I was not snacking as much between meals and I decided to start walking in the evenings and started eating smarter and healthier. I have been taking this Garginia Cambogia for almost two weeks and my appetite is slowly decreasing and I have lost 4 1/2 pounds. I know that doesn’t seem like much but it’s a start. I will
admit with all the hype about this Garcinia Cambogia I did expect lots of weight loss but realistically I know that it is healthier to lose weight slow and steady. I am happy with the 4 1/2 pound loss and and I am glad that I did try this Garcinia Cambogia because I think that it helped me to kick start exercising and eating healthier and I have actually cut out sodas and candy bars (wasn’t easy though).
Oh yes, I am not accusing my towel of being quiet so heavy anymore.
I was happy to receive this Garcinia Cambogia at a promotional discount for my honest evaluation. I was not compensated in any way. If you think you would like to check it out, just click on the link below.

Eyeglass Pouch, Glasses Sleeve With Squeeze Top Closure- Slip In Case & Holder For Sunglasses, Eyewear & Frames For Men, Women & Kids, By OptiPlix


I love crafts and sewing and I have a hard time keeping up with my scissors. I actually ordered this case to store my scissors in. It makes a great scissor case. I put a Velcro backing on the back and hang it on the wall above my craft/sewing table. Now, I don’t have to search throughout the house for my scissors when I need them.
This case is made of a vinyl material and the inside has a soft lining. It has a squeeze top design so anything you store in them will be protected. I can see why this case would make a nice case for glasses.
This case would also be great to store a cell phone, jewelry, and it would be just the thing to store lipstick and a few small personal items in so that they don’t get lost in a purse.
I would recommend this case to anyone that does need glasses because it is made really well and will give eye glasses great protection but if you want to use it for something creative like I did, it’s a handy case to have.
I was happy to receive this product free in exhange for my honest and unbiased review.


Barber’s Choice Professional Hair Cutting Barber Scissors / Shears – 6.5 Inches Long, 420 Japanese Stainless Steel with Adjustment Tension Screw – Includes a Premium Carrying Case & Matching Comb


My husband used to go to a Barber to get his hair cut but he complained that it was getting too expensive so I cut his hair now. One of the most important things I have learned about cutting hair is a good pair of scissors is a must. I tried using regular scissors and they were so dull and I just ended up chopping his hair instead of cutting it. He honestly has had to wear hats to cover up the bad hair cut.
These scissors are made of 420 Japanese stainless steel. I looked up what 420 Japanese stainless steel is and surprisingly this type of steel is regarded as the best steel for scissors. These scissors also measure about 6.5 inches ad have a tension adjustment screw. A black comb and nice storage case come with the scissors.
I tried these scissors out a few days ago and cut my husbands hair. I noticed right away that these scissors were sharp because they were going over my husbands hair like a lawn mower. I was able to get his hair cut in half the time that it usually takes . I could tell my husband was really happy about that because he wasn’t squirming in the chair like he usually does.
Overall, I really like these scissors and can’t imagine using any other kind now, especially since they have made the job of cutting hair so much easier, faster and with a professional look.
I was happy to receive this product free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. My opinions are solely my own.


Fogless Shower Mirror for No Fog Shaving or Makeup | Bonuses: High Quality Scissors, Tweezers & Pouch in a Luxury Gift Box | Razor Holder & Rotating Power Lock Suction


I got this mirror for my husband because he makes such a mess when he shaves at the bathroom sink and he complains about every mirror I put over the sink. He says he has to lean over too far to see the mirror when he is shaving. Well, he is actually impressed with this shower mirror and he loves shaving in the shower because of this mirror. I love that he shaves in the shower too – no mess on my sink!
This fogless shower mirror has a swiveling rotating 360 degree adjustable mirror arm. This has helped my husband position the mirror and allows him to get a better and smoother shave because he can see his face from all angles.
This mirror is about 6 inches and has a razor hook and comes with tweezers (something for me!) and scissors in a drawstring pouch.
This shower mirror is easy to install. Just place it where you want it in the shower, hold in place and twist the base until it lock. So simple.
I asked him if the mirror fogged up because it is supposed to be fogless and he said if he takes really hot showers it does a little but when he takes “normal” showers there is no fogging up at all.
So overall, I think this shower mirror is working really well for him and I love that I don’t have to go behind him and clean up a mess.
I was happy to receive this product free in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are solely my own.

First Botany Cosmeceuticals Australian Tea Tree Oil, 4 fl. oz. with Glass Dropper

tea tree oil

I am really loving that the Tea Tree Oil comes in a big 4 ounce bottle. Almost all of my other essential oils comes in 5ml or 10 ml bottles.
I have noticed when I put several drops of this Tea Tree Oil in my lotions it makes such a difference in my skin. My skin was looking dry and scaly but since I have put this oil in my lotions, my skin is looking softer, smoother and I can tell they are becoming more hydrated. That means my skin is becoming healthy again.
I do use this Tea Tree Oil in my diffuser too. Sometimes when I feel stressed or just anxious, I put a few drops in my diffuser and sit back and after awhile I do feel that I am more calm and relaxed. I am not saying I am in “La La land” but I do feel less stressed overall.
I do have one complaint with this Tea Tree Oil, it does seem thinner than other Tea Tree Oils I have used and sometimes I feel I need to use a little more but overall I do feel that this is a great value for this 4 ounce bottle and getting a glass dropper (which is rare in essential oils) is a plus.
I did receive this product at a promotional discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. My opinions are my own.
