Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum Review #azurenaturals






For the last few weeks I have been using Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum on my face and around my eyes and I have to admit that it’s probably one of my very favorite products I use before bed. There isn’t an smell to the product which moves it to the top of my list. I don’t like anything that has a scent slathered all over my face. I also love the pump that the Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum comes in.

I have noticed a significant difference in my skin since I started using this serum. My skin is looking great and the lines on my forehead are starting to melt away. You have to love that. I use this serum every night religiously and it’s made a huge difference.
There are so many things to love about this product for instance Azure Naturals provides premium quality facial skincare and anti-aging products using natural and organic ingredients whenever possible.

Retinol is one of the most effective ingredients for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A is proven to improve pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, skin tone, color, as well as increase your skins hydration levels.

Cellular renewal happens continuously when we're young, but as we age the skin's ability to renew itself slows down. Retinol has a very small molecular structure that allows it to deeply penetrate your skin activating collagen and elastin. Applied at night ULTIMATE Retinol will increase your skin's moisture, promoting cellular turnover and renewal.

Best of all you can buy with confidence because Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum  is made in the USA With The Highest Quality Natural and Organic Ingredients Available: 97% Natural, 72% Organic. Contains No Alcohol, No Parabens, Plant Based, No GMO's, Cruelty Free and Never Tested On Animals!

ONE YEAR MONEY BACK GUARANTEE! All Azure Naturals products are backed by our 365-day, 100% Hassle-Free, Money Back Guarantee. If you don't absolutely love our ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum we will give you a full refund, including shipping, no matter where you buy the product!

Super Bright Luminescent Light Bracelets #glowsticks



What kid doesn’t love a glow bracelet, OK let’s be real what adult doesn’t love one too! HA! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a little glow!

Super Bright  have come up with the perfect way to sell their Super Glow Stick Bracelets… in a tube of 100! It’s like every kids dream. I remember when I was a kid wanting to get a glow bracelet any time we were some place at night that sold them. I remember my parents complaining about how much they cost. Now I see them all over the place and think why would you buy them at any of these events when you can buy them in bulk for about the same price as 1 bracelet at one event! No thank you I will stick to buying from Super Bright!


Because in my opinion Super Bright is the best brand of glow sticks on the market. Each tube of 100 luminescent light bracelets contains 5 colors -- Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Pink and 100 connectors so you can hook the ends together to make bracelets and necklaces. You will want to make yourself a necklace too of course!
After buying glow sticks each year for at least $1 each for going to our favorite concerts I decided that buying them in bulk was a much better option. 100 for the price of no more than 12! Yes, I will stick to Super Bright!


Once they start glowing, The Super Glow brand glow bracelets will last you all night. They will glow super bright for 6 - 10 hours. Then, they will start to fade out but may continue to emit some light for up to 36 hours. These glow bracelets are fresh from the factory so you can’t beat that!

I love Super Glow Stick Bracelets and I bet you will too!!

Gurin Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser Review #freewaterflosser



I have had dental issues for as long as I can remember for sure since I was a small child. My teeth look great from the outside but from the inside there is always something wrong with them. It doesn’t seem to matter if I brush them 6 times a day I always have issues. It seems to run in our family…. Go figure! Lucky me!

Its import that I use good toothbrushes and I floss daily but unlike a lot of people when I floss my gums bleed and I don’t do well with that. It actually freaks me out a bit so guess what… normally I will just skip flossing which is really bad for your teeth.
Obviously there are times when I have to floss because there is something logged in my teeth but in the past if I thought I could get away with no flossing I would that’s just the way it would happen because I didn’t want to be bothered or there was a chance of blood in the forecast.

I decided there had to be an answer to my flossing issues and that answer has proven to be using the Gurin Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser. This flosser is like an electronic water pic that uses water to floss your teeth verses using waxed string that tears away at your gums. I love this water flosser because I don’t have to worry about bleeding gums any longer plus it’s fast and easy.


You have to love a product that gives you a sense of security back to the nightly routine of brushing your teeth. I am so impressed with the Gurin Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser because it has a nice size water tank on it so that you are able to get through at least one floss without having to add more water and considering how much water the tank holds the flosser is actually light!

I didn’t find the flossing to be awkward at all as a matter of fact I found using the water flosser to be super easy and much easier than using wax string. I love this water flosser and would recommend it to anyone! I would especially recommend it to anyone who has dental issues or floss issues.

Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup Review #YaconSyrup





Have you ever heard of Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup?  Yacon Syrup comes from Yacon plant (pronounced yah-KON) of the Andes Mountains in Peru and has been part of the Andean diet for hundreds of years. The yacon juices are extracted from the roots of the yacon plant, then filtered and evaporated in a process very similar to the way Maple syrup is made.

Yacon Syrup is probably one of the most unique syrups I have ever tried. Initially when I looked at it I was very worried about how bad it was going to taste. It’s a thick syrup that looks like black tar. Initially everything in your body is yelling and screaming yuck, but to my utter surprise I found the Yacon Syrup to have a nice mild and pleasant taste. It didn’t taste bad at all. I think I worried myself so badly that when I actually tried it I thought wow I can do this it’s actually good!!

Daily intake of Yacon Syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index (BMI), according to a 2009 scientific study published in Clinical Nutrition.

Yacons contain a high level of fructooligosaccharides, which are natural sugars commonly found in plants. The body resists the process to breakdown these sugars by enzymes during digestion and passes them through the body quickly without retaining the full caloric intake.  Because the sugar in Yacon Syrup isn’t digested like normal foods, you can enjoy sweetness without the calories.

You can replace sugar with Yacon Syrup while baking things like cookies, cakes, pies, cobblers, brownies—you name it!  You can replace sugar or honey with Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup in things you are cooking. You can even use it in place of salad dressing or mix it with a little oil or water for your salad.  Like Agave or honey, it’s great with coffee or tea.    Take one teaspoon before each meal, three times per day which is what I have been doing.

I have lost a few pounds since using the Yacon Syrup which means it’s awesome in my book! Great flavor, weight loss, and health benefits what more can you ask for.

Chicken Tortilla Soup (Ree Drummond)




This recipe is delicious and super easy. Don't let the ingredient list overwhelm you this is sooo easy because you are opening up a lot of cans and spices.

Everyone in the house freaked out over how amazing this was. I love the ease of it and I love that if you have left over chicken you can easily make this soup.

I love Ree Drummond! Her recipes are amazing! They are easy and delicious and best of all totally filling! Make it even easier by using left over chicken!!




Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 10-ounce can diced tomatoes and green chiles, such as Rotel
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2- 15-ounce cans black beans, drained
  • 3 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 5 small corn tortillas
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Start by mixing together the cumin, 1 teaspoon of the chilli powder, the garlic powder and salt. Drizzle the chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the spice mixture. Set the rest of the spice mixture aside. Bake until the chicken is cooked all the way through, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove it from the oven. Cut the chicken into cubes and set aside.
  3. Next, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Throw in the onions, green and red bell peppers and garlic. Throw in a tablespoon of the spice mixture used to season the chicken. Add a little extra chilli powder (about 1/4 teaspoon) for heat. Stir to cook the vegetables until they begin to turn golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the cubed chicken and diced tomatoes, juice and all. Add the chicken broth, hot water and tomato paste. Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Add the drained black beans. Next, mix together the cornmeal with 1/2 cup water. Add the mixture to the pot, and then simmer the soup for 10 to 15 minutes. Give it a taste and add salt or seasonings as needed; be sure to not under salt it!
  4. Cut the tortillas into uniform 2- to 3-inch strips. Stir most of them into the soup just before serving. This is what makes tortilla soup tortilla soup! Turn off the heat and get ready to serve it up. Ladle the soup into a bowl, then add avocado, red onion, sour cream, cilantro and extra tortilla strips to the top. The more toppings on tortilla soup, the merrier.

Surpahs Shiny Small Lightweight Digital Bathroom Scale Review #surpahs





The more weight I lose the more I realize how important it see to have an accurate scale to weigh in on. There is nothing more mentally draining and diet sabotaging than stepping on the scale only to step on it a few minutes later to see that you have now gained a pound back because your scale is not accurate.

It’s very important to me that my scale is accurate and small. The bathroom that I get ready in each morning is not very big so I need a scale that likewise is not very big. Also in the past I have had nice scales that were large and they would always get damaged because we were constantly having to move them out of the way because of one thing or another. The Surpahs Shiny Small Lightweight Digital Bathroom Scale is the answer to any small bathroom.

The first thing I noticed and loved about the Surpahs Shiny Small Lightweight Digital Bathroom Scale was the fact that it’s a beautiful shade of pink that I absolutely love and the second thing I noticed was how small and light weight it is. I see why that’s in the title of the scale. It’s incredible!


The most important thing, of course, is the accuracy of the scale the Surpahs Shiny Small Lightweight Digital Bathroom Scale is very accurate and dependable. I love that it doesn’t matter how many times I step in the scale I come out with the same number. I know that sound trivial but to me that makes a good scale. My weight doesn’t change each time I step on and off the scale and I want the scale to reflect that. Don’t get me wrong I am not the person who jumps on and off over and over but there are times I step off the scale because I have forgotten the ounces and I need to know the ounces for tracking purposes with the Surpahs Shiny Small Lightweight Digital Bathroom Scale I don’t have to worry if the number might have changed because guess what … it didn’t! I love this scale because it is exactly what it claims, lightweight, small, and accurate.
