clothespins

 Seriously my mind is blown! Who knew you could make so many awesome non preschool crafts with clothes pins? I can honestly say that I have never hung my laundry out to dry so the idea of using them what they are actually supposed to be used for is kind of a joke.. however I am the crafty mommy so these uses are much more realistic. You can buy the 200 clothespins on Amazon for $8.99… how many of these crafts can you you do with 200 clothespins?!?!?!?!?

Strength Stack 52 Complete Pack Review


bc22e3d0d30aff08334039afd9b8b846db47fa4cI was sent the Stack 52 weight Loss card and dice game to review through Tomoson. This is a really fun awesome weigh to mix fitness and fun. You can find them here on the Stack52 Site. This complete set sells for $48.97 right now its on sale, usually it sells for $89.95. Each card has a description of the exercise, a picture of the exercise and then a QR link that you scan scan with your phone to see a video of the exercise.

The Weight Loss Cards are awesome. Each card has a weight loss tip, and each tip that you do you get that many points for it. An example of one of these cards is Drink water before a meal, 1 pt.  You get facts on why this is important to do. Each stack of cards.

I think this is a really fun creative way to work out. I currently have them at work on my desk and when it gets slow I try and get my coworkers to join me in a quick game of who can do the most and the fastest of whatever card we flip. Its pretty fun. love it!

True Sol Organic Argan Oil Review


d23fc73e1dc74b3386e7c4b73d05ffa1168acf8b_2

I was sent this 2oz bottle of Argan Oil through Tomoson to review. It sells here on Amazon for $18.95.

Here are the top ten uses I have found for using Argan Oil.

  1. Skin Moisturizer:  The Most common use for Argan Oil is as a skin moisturizer. It works wonderfully to hydrate and soften the skin. Its high in vitamin E.  It absorbs easily and is non greasy and non irritating. Makes it a awesome natural moisturizer for all skin types. Just a few drops on the skin using gentle rubbing motions use on your skin and face as you would any body or face lotion.
  2. Hair Conditioner: Argan oil is proven to make hair softer, silkier and shinier and is the ideal hair conditioner. It can even help with split ends, and tame frizzy hair. There are several different ways to apply it as a conditioner the most easy way is by putting a few drops between the palms of your hands, then comb your hands and fingers through damp hair and make sure to massage into  your scalp and tips. This will encourage hair growth and help with those annoying split ends.
  3. Sleek and Shine Styling: Since it does work awesome to tame unruly hair and gives an awesome shine it works awesome to help style and make your hair manageable. Use after you go through your daily routine, again just use a few drops and run your fingers through your hair.
  4. Anti-Aging:  Using Argan Oil will give your skin a youthful glow and reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Its restore elasticity to the skin and leaves your skin feeling softer and plumper. Massage a few drops into your face and neck before bed. It will help with the wrinkles and moisturize all in one!
  5. Dry Skin Conditions: Having eczema can leave your skin feeling raw, flaky and itchy and looks awful. Using Argan oil can help with this so much, and is painless since it is 100% natural and no added scents.  The vitamin E and fatty acids will help repair the damaged skin and provide the nutrients which will help prevent further dryness and irritation and encourage healing.
  6. Acne: If you have issues with Acne you already know that many moisturizers on the market can actually make your skin worse because of all the extra oils and fragrances in it. Since Argan oil is non greasy it helps balance the skin by providing a natural moisture.
  7. Protection and Healing: Have cracked, Irritated, Damaged or even burned skin? Argan oil has the properties to help speed up healing. Just put a few drops onto damaged skin to help speed up the healing process.
  8. Pregnancy: I cant even tell you how much I wish I knew about this miracle oil when I was pregnant. It gives protection against stretch marks, sagging, puckered skin after birth. Use a few drops on  your breasts, tummy, ass and thighs to help reduce those stretch marks and attempt to keep your pre baby body as much as you can.
  9. Foot, Hand and Nail Treatment: Dry hard cracked feet? Brittle nails? Peeling skin around the nails? massage a few drops into these trouble spots and it will help. Also massage into feet before bed and slip on some socks for a great foot treatment.
  10. Lip Moisturiser: If you get the pleasure of enjoying the cold dry harshness of winter you know all about sore, chapped, cracked dry lips and just how much it sucks. Argan Oil to the rescue. Dip a QTip into the bottle and spread onto your lips just as you would a lip balm and wipe off the excess!
