Argan Oil - 100% Pure & USDA Organic Review

I received this product free for my honest review.  First off, I hoped it would work like Moracan Oil for my hair, but I think this was not the right formula for hair.  My fault not the companies.  That being said, it does go on nice and makes my skin soft, but my hair was just too oily looking.  I am pretty sure I saw on their site that they had a formula for hair though.

The smell is pretty faint but smells like grape.  I do not care for grape.  Again, not the companies fault.

I like that this has been purified more then once and is organic.  It is also cold processed which is and added benefit for sure.

I want to use this oil in one of my balms or lotions that I make.  I am excited since it is packed with minerals and yummy good things for your skin.

Ebook - Vegetarian Quick & Easy - Under 15 Minutes Review

Ok, I am in no way a vegetarian.  I like my meat.  But I did want some ideas for making veggie foods.  I got this for free for my honest review.

Its pretty simple but has some nice ideas.  I like that I can put it on my iphone kindle too.  Its pretty cheap on amazon so click here if you are interested.

I do like how fast you can cook these up also.

I can't wait to try the flat bread pizza. YUMMY!

Pure Peppermint Essential Oil Review

With all the hype on essential oils, I thought sure I will give this one a try too.  I have tried just about every kind out there.  All of them make claims and really how do you know who you can trust?  From Young Living and Doterra to Now and Aura Cacia.  So many out there and all seem fine on the surface.  And since I am no scientist how do I know if they are really "Pure" as they say.  

After using this product on and off a few times I called them to see how it is manufactured and if it is first distillation or second or third.  Guess what?  The lady had no clue.  She could not give me and answer and instead said to email them.  But she never even offered me an email.  That is a big mistake for sure.

That being said, I did use it and it seems very potent.  Cleared my sinus and burnt my eyes even.  I suggest using it in a carrier oil for sure.  I will continue to use it.  The price is great for sure.  But I just have no assurance on its quality is all.  They do claim it being 100% pure.  They also say it is Grade A and cold pressed.  So maybe I should just take their word for it.

Vitamin C Lotion [Natural Moisturizer] Review

What a great lotion.  It fit nicely in to my purse and I was able to use it recently on a trip we had to take.  My DD hands were so chapped from the winter and this lotion worked great.  It did not burn her hands like many other lotions and if absorbed quickly.  I am very happy with this product and would buy it myself.  It also has great ingredients like vitamin c and jojoba oil and many more that I like.  Check it out!  Click here.

12 in 1 Headband - Versatile Sports Headwear Review

I got this one headband for my daughter.  Now all my kids want one.  She wanted it mostly for a hair tie (scrunchie) as well as to warm her neck and use as a headband.  She said to give it a 4 because it is way to big to wear as a hair tie (scrunchie)  She is 14 but has an adult size head.  She is taller then her mama for sure.

What is also nice about this headband is how many different styles they have.  They have this camo line, but also plain and paisley as well as many more.  Just check out the different kinds you can get. I think this will come in handy during soccer season.

100% Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil Review.

I was given this product to try. I wanted it because I needed a carrier oil for my essential oils. I have not used fractionated coconut oil before. So I admittedly have nothing to compare it with. I did rub regular coconut oil on my hands to get a feel for both of them.  They were not much different.  So that is good.  It also worked great as a carrier oil.  And that is what I wanted it for.  I had some EO mixes my sister gave me and her coconut oil was just from Walmart.  It seemed pretty similar as far as I can tell.  But I am sure this one is better.  I am not a Walmart fan.

I did try it as a massage oil.  It was just ok.  I think I prefer the body butter I make instead.  Heeheee.  But it did work ok.  Just not my preferred method.  I have to say it was very light-weight and non-greasy for sure.  I am happy with it overall and excited to use it for all my EO mixes.

20" Titanium Tornado Sports Necklace Review

I recently received this sports necklace to try. I honestly think its uncomfortable, but my 7 and 14 year old really like it. I guess cause they are sports gals. It has a nice sporty look and comes in many colors. Which is a huge plus. I bought this one in pink and white and now I may have to get another for the 14 year old. So if you have a sports gal, this would be a great gift at a good price.

Bless & Give Hope!!

Went off the beaten path and found a little restaurant in a small strip mall. My hubby was nervous and had me check on yelp first. He was about to leave when I announced it had a 4 star for reviews. He said ok and we went in.

The young waitress just opened the place and looked as though the world was heavy on her shoulders. Normally I would be upset at the lack of kindness by such a waitress. But today I could see beyond my own selfishness and in to her heart.

The restaurant quickly was filling and she, being the only one there was working her tail off. Like most, no one was really concerned for her, because this was her job. They just wanted their food. I thing she had 9-10 tables she was serving at one time.

You could see the stress on her face, yet she began to smile a bit here and there. The smiles seemed strained but she was trying.

Smash, down goes a plate of food, broken plate shatters and food slides across the floor. She can't even take the time to pick it up because there are people waiting to check out and a few tables waiting for coffee refills. Even with all this she offers my husband a coffee to go!  WOW!

It is weird how burdens can sap our personalities and make us look like all hope in the world is lost. Burdened and chained people just move forward mechanically, as a means to just get the day over. Get your paycheck and move towards the next meaningless day.

My husband and kids went to the counter to pay our bill and I felt a need to clear the table as best I could, stacking plates to make her morning easier. We had already discussed blessing her with a sizable tip but money did not seem like enough.

As I pushed all the chairs in, so she would not bump into any of them, I turned to see my husband step forward from the counter and politely demand the attention of the entire restaurant. With a loud clap he began to speak loudly asking all to listen to what he had to say. I was startled as this is out of his character. He then said the waitress name and said what a hard worker she was and how we should all appreciate that about her and then began to clap and thank her. The whole restaurant was clapping for her and I was stunned, as many others in line were as well. Many were waiting to pay their bills and surely frustrated cause they, I am sure had things to do and places to go. I know we did.
The waitress as she was still checking my husband out was now crying... She was thanking him and the tears were rolling down her face.  I could now see hope behind those tear-filled eyes. And he had yet to give her the tip yet. She was just so grateful to be shown appreciation.  To have someone grateful for her hard work. Amazing what words of encouragement and acknowledgment can do for a persons soul.

My husband then handed her the tip and said God bless. I am not sure she heard him or saw the tip through her blurry eyes. She just kept saying thank you, thank you.

We walked out, me balling my eyes out and feeling more blessed then her. I was taught a lesson here. A lesson about serving the servers. Knowing their names and looking long enough to remember there faces.  Not thinking so highly of myself that because it's their job they need to treat me like a queen. Instead, choosing to lighten their load and show them heart-felt appreciation.

What an amazing feeling to be used to day to bless and give hope.
