Hey all.

recently the chance for me to review Dot & Dot Large packing cubes came along and I was/am happy I got too. I along with many of you I sure have crafting supplies for making different things, such as ribbon tissue paper or even scrapbooking supplies well I kept mine in paper shopping bags stuffed in a cubby hole between my nightstand and my desk. It was cluttered and just a plain eyesore. Well I am very happy to say it is not that way anymore because I put it all in these great organizer bags.

one of the things I like most about  is the mesh on them so that I can easily see what is in them. Another thing is they don’t take up to much space when stacked and I love how vibrint the color is.

So when I was recently given the opportunity to try the Old Factory Natural Soy candle gift set, I was super excited to add more candles to my collection, and the set I chose was Happy Holidays . With each set you get 3 2. oz candles.

NEW ChapStick® dual-ended Hydration Lock



I am a member of Smiley360. What is Smiley360? you might ask well it is a website that will send you products (that you qualify for) absolutely free for you to try. Then after you try it you have tasks to do. Such as review it on Facebook, twitter or instagram or do a blog post if you have one.

Well a few weeks ago I qualified for chapsticks NEW ChapStick® dual-ended Hydration Lock chapstick. I am a bit of a lip balm junkie as you can tell from the picture above. I have gotten some of them through sub boxes, some were givin to me and others I have found for a really good deal.

Now someone might wonder, why would you want so many lip balms? The answer for me is it has to do with the mood I’m in. Different ones do different things and have different flavors, like sometimes I’m in the mood for one with a little minty bite and other times I want a fruity flavor or maybe a little color, but lately I have found myself reaching for my new ChapStick .

It is made with 2 sides. One is renew made with replenishing plant butters like Shea and Mango and the other is moistureize and has antioxidants such as CoQ10 and vitamin E. For me I have noticed that the renew side is little thicker (but not waxy), and I tend to use that side is the morning. The other side Moisturize is a bit more has a well um moisturizing aspect to it and I have been using it throughout the day. For me it tends to last for about 2-3 hours then I have to reapply. So it’s got pretty good staying power. I also find that even when I have not put any on for awhile my lips feel a lot less dry then before I started using it. The only downside for me is I normally like a little scent or flavor to my lip balms and this one doesn’t have one that I notice, but other then that it is fantastic. I give it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. The price is really good too. Below is a small list of places and prices that I found it for on the web.


Walgreens – 3.49

Wal-Mart – 2.68

C.V.S. – 3.69 -2.99

Birchbox – 2.99 (if your a Birchbox ACE it ships for free)

AlphaHealthy Probiotics


AlphaHealthy Probiotics

I was given the opportunity to try AlphaHealthy Probiotics and I have been taking them for about a 2 weeks now and to be honest don’t notice much a difference. Other then the fact that maybe my acne breakout that I have been battling has been calming down a bit quicker than normal. However I really have not been taking them long enough to know weather they are doing much more yet. Although I have read a lot about Probiotics in the last few days on a few different websites and I think the benefits that have been shown are good. if you would like to read more on probiotics there is a lot of great information on WebMD

What is a Probiotic: A dietary supplement containing live bacteria or yeast that supplements normal gastrointestinal flora, given especially after depletion of flora caused by infection or ingestion of an antibiotic drug. (Source: Medical Dictionary

Probiotics are naturally found in some foods such as Kefir, yogurt, pickles, sauerkraut and 6 other foods that you can read about HERE on Mind Body Green

How Probiotics work: (in short) They work by Balancing the good microorganisms, with the not so good ones thet are in the intestines and seem to help the bodies immunity with fighting off certain things.

from what I have read on a few different websites there are very few side effects from taking probiotics. However some may cause gas and bloating, but decreasing the dosage or taking them every other day may help with that.

Probiotics can be used with certain antibiotics to decrease the risk of diarrhea that some may cause, but talk to you Dr. to avoid any interactions if you are taking anything else.

Read about what probiotics have been found usful for on WebMD

So if you want to get started on AlphaHealthy Probiotic go on over to Amazon and order them.

September 2014 Love With Food but really Gluten Free August box


PicMonkey CollageLWF

Hi everyone

Last month I had gotten an offer from Love with Food to get a free box. So I ordered it and was excited to be able to unbox it for you.

well the box got shipped out and delivered, only I was not the one who it was delivered to. I e-mailed Love with Food to let them know I had not gotten the box yet. Well they said they had run out of September boxes but offered me a August Gluten Free box instead. I thought that would be cool because I have not seen as many Gluten-Free unboxing’s of Love with Food as I have the regular boxes.

So here we go in the box

x2 dang – toasted coconut chips 1.43 oz.  These were the first item from the box that I ate and holy cow they are awesome the bags are 1.43 oz each and have a value of 1.62 per oz if you bought the 12 pack on Amazon

x2 180 – Nutty Rice Bites [dry roasted] with blueberries they are .62 oz. each and the 2 packs have a value of $2.98. These were the second thing I ate out of the box. Honestly for me they could be a good replacement  for some of the sugary not so good for me things I eat sometimes.

Jules – Cookies mix the 1.3 lb. box makes about 60 Cookies and is a value of $9.95. I read on the website that you can add whatever you want as far as nuts and chocolate chips to these cookies which I like because you can just keep these on hand then add whatever you need to. However for myself $9.95 is a bit much for a box of cookie mix.

Terra-Real Vegetable chip and the flavor is Sweet and Beets  they are 1.5 oz. and have a value of $2.55 I ate these too. I liked them a lot I wish they had a bit of a salty flavor to them but they are really good.

Bumblebar- Juno Apple Crisp Bar 1.6 oz.  it has a value of $2.69 This tasted ok not my favorite but if someone gave one to me I would eat it again. I love that it has 5g of Protein though

Lundburg – Multi-grain chips in Redwood Smokey BBQ 1.5 oz which has an approximate value of 3.15 per bag. These were ok again not the worst thing I’ve eaten but I probably would not but them. On this I am including the product link so you can locate them, if you are interested and to do that scoll all the way to the bottom of the page and I included the amazon link as well.

x 5 Yummy Earth – Organic suckers they have a value of .19 cents each so times that by 5 and I have .95 cents worth. I have had the Blueberry one and it was really good this I may purchase in the future

ginny – minis butter crisp love 1.25 oz. there value is 1.08 I haven’t eaten these yet but I love butter cookies so I think I will enjoy them.

Boulder Granola – Original 3 oz snack size. and has a vale of 2.70 I have had this yet either but the bag is a pretty good size I may try and find a cookie recipe to use it in.

So I think it was a pretty good box the price of the Gluten-Free box is is $25.00 a month and the value of this box is $29.29. You don’t come out hugly ahaead but you don’t have to pay a whole lot for some huge price for a bag or box of something and discover that you don’t like it.

Love with food is a big win for me I think I may get a monthly Tasting box for awhile. I want to start snacking on healthier things and this is a great way to find snacks and not waste money on ones I don’t like.

Eyebrow and Eyelash Brush Kit


Crave Naturals Brow and Lash Kit

Crave Naturals Brow and Lash Kit


Hi all,

recently I was asked if I wanted to try The new Crave Naturals Brow and Lash Kit. So I checked them out and from what I can find they have not been in business very long but I’ll tell you what I think they hit the nail on the head with this handy little kit. First thing I love is the packaging and the logo. You can bring on a vacation with you or if you wanted to you could put it, along with a few other smaller brushes in your purse for on the go.


     The next thing I love is the angled brush is really soft, so its not going to feel scratchy or uncomfortable if you are using it for applying gel or powder the lower lash line                                         

PicMonkey Collage

I first used the eyebrow brush to straighten my eyebrows then I used Benefit Gimmie brow to fill them in. After applying my revealed palette eye shadow I used Urban Decays Perversion (from a past ipsy bag) Then combed out my lashes with the lash comb.  After that I used some Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel (from my April Birchbox) and combed them to evenly distribute the brow gel with the stoolie. I must say am very happy with the results.


 If you to want this cute and helpful kit search eyebrow brush and use code: QQMSRCOC at checkout to get 25% off on Amazon

Pure Raspberry Ketones All Natural Fat Burners


pure Natural Raspberry Ketones

Hey all,

Recently I was given the chance to try Summit Nutrition’s Raspberry  Ketones  All natural Fat burner. I don’t have that much weight to lose only about 15 Lbs or so but none the less I want to lose it. I have had weight issues a lot of my life due to different Medications I took as a teenager along with really bad eating habits. When I was about 22 I was 205 Lbs and a size 20, my back hurt all the time I was out of breath a lot.  I was unhappy so around 23 I decided I needed to do something about it. I changed my diet and started being active a bit more,  got off of the medications I was on (with the help of a Dr.) Slowly but surly I started to lose weight. Then I got pregnant with my son at the beginning of my pregnancy, I was determined to not use being pregnant as an excuse to go overboard with eating. I stuck to it and only gained the recommended 25 lbs  and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. After he was born I was really lucky. I lost the weight within the first 3 months and managed to keep it off. About 2 years later I had found out I was pregnant with our daughter. Everything went really well with it, except I was having the reverse problem and I was having some issues putting on weight I only gained 17 lbs but our daughter was perfectly healthy. Now 4 years later I am 157 and a bit nervous because I weigh more then I have for about 3 years.

So when this opportunity came along to try the Raspberry Ketones I was willing to give it a shot especially since its all natural . I really haven’t been taking it long enough to know weather it really helps you to lose weight (I will have to write an update post in a few months) but I can say it does suppress the appetite a bit. Now there is no magic quick fix pill that will just make you lose weight. it takes a healthy eating lifestyle and activity and I use the word lifestyle because you really do have to make it a forever type change not just be on a diet, because you can’t always be buying the TV dinner meals from those weight loss groups or just be eating Grapefruit all the time, I am not bashing anyone who is doing those plans, I am just saying you need to adopt forever meal habits that are good for you. When you do make the change to healthier foods don’t do it to fast because if you go and throw everything that is bad for you out in one day, you might get a craving and you fight it then when you finally get that bag of chips or that box of cookies,  you may find yourself gorging and eating the whole thing. So just start slow and eat bowl of salad a day and yogurt for snack  There are so many ways to make great salads. I am not a professional dietitian nor am I a Dr. so always talk to your Dr. before make drastic changes ya never know they may have some peer type support groups they can suggest for you to go to.

Adovia Sulfur Soap for Acne, Blackheads and Oily Skin with

photovisi-download soap

Recently I was sent  Adovia Sulfur Soap for Acne, Blackheads and Oily Skin with Dead Sea Salt to test and review and I myself get acne flare ups pretty often but I also have sensitive facial skin, however the good thing about this soap is it’s not just for your face, you can use it all over and that’s what I did  because the rest of my skin is not sensitive, I really liked it a lot it helped my skin to feel super clean and did not leave any residue or filmy type feeling, was not to drying and it has a present scent as well


Now why is this soap such a good soap, well its good because of the Dead Sea salt and Sulfur,  the Dead Sea is located near Jordon, Israel 11,385 and its shore is the lowest point on earth (on dry land). Normal water is 3% salt and Dead Sea salt is 27% salt and made with various types of salt, the minerals in these salts include Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium Chloride, and Bromides which have been found beneficial to those with muscle  pain, stress, skin disorders, insomnia, and joint disorders Magnesium has also  shown to slow aging of the skin.

Also this soap contains Sulfur which is known as “Natures beauty mineral” or “healing mineral” because it actively functions in the production in the production of collagen, sulfur is also a  anti-fungal which is why it’s so great for treating acne. and what happens is It causes the skin to dry and peel which can be good for skin with acne (but this soap also has olive oil and aloe to help balance that). If your skin is prone to white heads, Sulfur can help to reduce and dry oil which can help to prevent blocked pores.

So the answer to why this soap is so great is that it has 2 great components that have been found to help with skin conditions and have anti-fungal as well as Antibacterial properties.

If you would like to know more information on Dead Sea salt  or Sulfur here is where I found it on Ehow

If you are interested in Adovia you can buy it HERE on Amazon or if you have sensitive skin go check out some of their many other products on amazon HERE.
