I married and became a first-time mom at the age of 45; two years later I was told I was POST menopausal so I started blogging. You will find a mix of personal stories, humor and the most Luxurious Giveaways for us busy moms!
I love any clothing or fashion accessory that can be customized to my own personal taste and style. No worries of there being so many in circulation you end up running into someone wearing the exact same thing.
So when the fabulous folks at just jen contacted me and asked if I would like to review one of their custom rhinestone women's shirts or maternity shirts, I was delighted! Being a lover of anything with "bling", this line of clothing was right on target with my love of rhinestone jewelry!
I went to the just jen on-line store and chose this nice long-sleeved t-shirt in black
And as much as the "Diva" describes me perfectly, I went for the "Flower Power Peace Symbol"
Here is how it looks!!!
I love how this shirt turned out and I love how easy it was to use their on-line store to select my style, design and size. Took only a few minutes and then it arrived in about 10 business days, ready to enjoy!
I was super impressed with the quality. The shirts are made in the USA using only the finest Swarovski Crystals to create their dazzling designs. And these designs are not just for the ladies. They create these custom shirts for girls and infants too. There is a bridal shop, maternity, and holiday wear too! And they have more than just T-Shirts. There is a line of hoodies and sweats, custom aprons and caps. And if you can't find just the right symbol or saying in their inventory, you can create your own personalized design.
And what a unique gift idea! You can choose to personalize each item with a name, phrase, nickname, special date or ocassion!
I love trying new skincare products so when the generous people at L'BRI offered to send me several of their Aloe Vera based products to test, I was thrilled!
First up was their L'BRI Pure n' Natural Facial Masque. No other skincare product provides deep cleansing and removes dead skin cells as well as a tightening masque. I tried this for the first time on Wednesday night and I was so happy with the results, I'm posting them today rather than waiting until next week!
After cleansing my face, I was ready to give this masque a try. I used a small amount of Facial Masque and applied a thin layer in an upward motion over my face being careful to avoid my eyes. I left it on for 15 minutes. While I was waiting, I could feel the masque working right away as it dried and tightened over my face. Once I rinsed it off, I checked out the results.
What I loved about this masque was how it left my skin feeling silky smooth, evened out my skin tone all while firming and toning . It was so soothing on my face and no wonder. This masque is Aloe Vera based rather than water based making it a product your skin will love! It also contains Natural Botanical Extracts and Essential Oils making it ideal for blemished skin and enlarged pores.
Bottom line, if you love a tightening masque, this product is a must have and could easily be used with any skincare line.

I just couldn't start this review without first giving a little background on Elizabeth Grant herself and her personal story of why she developed her hugely successful line of skincare products. And can you believe how beautiful this 80-something-year-old woman is? She is just as vibrant and spunky when she promotes her fabulous line of skincare. She is so passionate about sharing her story of how she stumbled upon the "fountain of youth" back in 1948.
During the Second World War, Elizabeth suffered an injury that severely damaged the skin on her face leaving her with a constant source of personal shame, not to mention how it affected her ability to support herself as a makeup artist. It was during a routine trip to her physician's office that she stumbled upon literature describing a natural substance called Torricelumn and its ability to aid in the healing of war wounds. Intrigued, Elizabeth had this substance specifically formulated with other ingredients and used it on her damaged skin. Gradually but very noticeably, the transformation occurred and within eight months, Elizabeth's skin had improved remarkably. But she kept right on using the product and after receiving compliments and inquiries on her beautiful skin, the Elizabeth Grant Skincare Line was born.
Knowing Elizabeth's story, I was delighted at the opportunity to try a few products from her growing line of skincare products. And I couldn't believe my luck when I opened the box and saw her Ultimate Cellular Concentrate Serum! This powerful serum has been specifically formulated to win the fight against skin aging. It combines pure Torricelumn with plant stem cells which protects and repairs skin cells.
And I also had the opportunity to review Elizabeth's Eye Power Pads. I love products that target specific areas and these pads were so easy to use. The results were soft skin and with continued use, this product is designed to reduce the look of puffiness and make dark circles appear lighter.

From the makers of blinc comes a brand new line of microdermHYDRATION sticks! Fast, easy to use and more sanitary than the messy creams and gels that I'm used to, I was intrigued.
I was so thrilled when the fabulous folks at resurf.a.stic asked if I would like to review this clever new line. There are four microdermHYDRATION sticks, one for face, one for body, one for calluses and one for those bothersome ingrown hairs that result from shaving.
I read the information on their website explaining how they are able to deliver hydration and long-lasting skin-enriching treatment with professional-quality microdermHYDRATION in just one easy step. It's a neat and tidy stick with medical-grade, diamond-shaped crystals embedded in it. The uniform placement of those crystals make the application even and these products highly effective.
I tried the face stick first. I already use a line of serums and moisturizers twice a day and this face stick promises to prep my face so I can get the full benefit from my own skincare products. A quick look at the ingredients and I knew my skin was going to love this product! Among other active ingredients, it contains soothing aloe, chamomile extract and cucumber plus the antioxidant benefits of green tea and vitamins A and E.
All it took was a little water to activate the lubricant in the stick and I was ready to go. It was so easy to use! No mess, no fuss and so quick. A few gentle circular motions over my face and I was done! I gave my skin a quick rinse and found it left my face feeling fresh and smooth and silky soft. The stick has a clean fresh scent like you would expect to find at an expensive spa. I am definitely going to keep this product on hand. I love it!! A little while later and I applied my usual bedtime serum and moisturizer.
With continued use, this microdermHYDRATION face stick promises to diminish the appearance of fine lines, rough spots, small scars and wrinkles as well as reduce discoloration, uneven patches, oily patches, bumps and sun damage. I plan to keep right on using it and I have no doubt it will deliver.
I also tried the body stick on my elbows and knees and the heels of my feet. The results were much smoother skin and instant hydration. With the cold weather ahead and the constant temperature swings of going inside to outside, I plan to get a lot of use out of this body stick and a little goes a long way.
resurf.a.stic has created a stick for calluses and ingrown hairs too so I will be prepared with the right products on hand should I experience either of these inconveniences.
The face and body sticks performed perfectly and I expect the results to continue to get better and better as I continue to use the products.
Overall, I would rate these products with a big A+
so do Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons!

Anyone searching for that perfect pair of jeans that not only feel comfortable but look great can stop the search right here.
Miraclebody who are well known as the #1 brand of designer control fashion swimwear have a line of super slimming jeans. And it doesn't matter if you go for Straight Cut, Boot Cut or Skinny, they have the perfect pair to fit the bill. But Miraclebody Jeans don't just feel great on your body. How about a pair of jeans that are specifically designed to help you look 10 lbs thinner!!
I couldn't wait to try a pair of these fabulous jeans and thanks to their quick shipping department, I had a pair in my hot little hands in only four business days!
For my figure, I went right to the Straight Cut when I chose the Katie Jeans in Mystic. I love how the blend of cotton and spandex stretch and conform to my shape while creating a sleek look. They are lightweight and comfortable to wear and could easily go from season to season. And I'm not going to argue with a little added tummy control. They have a unique control panel that holds and firms just where we need it. And who doesn't like a little lift in the butt area helping to take off a few years in addition to that 10 lbs!
Miraclebody isn't just about fabulous jeans. In addition to their slimming miraclesuit, they carry Denium Skirts, Leggings, and Tops too. Their products are crafted in the USA so you know you are buying quality fashions.
All of you women who complain about the way your husband dresses are far from alone. There are probably more of you than those who are happy with their husband's fashion sense.
You want to know how poorly my hubby dresses?
On most days, very badly. The first time I met him was at the hospital where he was working as a neurologist. He showed up after hours dressed in camouflage army pants tucked into untied work boots with a T-shirt hanging out over his pants. Can you blame me for asking for ID? Get the picture?
So when he went along to help his younger brother pick up a piece of furniture at the Salvation Army Thrift Store, the guy who works the door there took one look at my husband and said "Clothing is downstairs." assuming my hubby needed a fashion makeover.... badly.
Hubby is lucky that I don't care how he dresses or whether he has any fashion sense at all. The truth is, I'm just happy he wears clothes!
