Sponsored Review: Team Innovations Garcinia Cambogia Advanced and Slender Cleanse Advanced Bundle.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Hello Dear Readers:

 I started using Garcinia Cambogia Advanced and Slender Cleanse Advanced a while ago, and while I do notice a slight appetite control difference, it has not affected my weight loss. That a I know of. Of course, this bundle is really meant for people who want/need to lose more than 10 lbs. And well, I am at about 5-7. So, I am not the precise target market and will be passing this on to a friend/family member who would like to try it, and want to lose weight!

That said, I did write an honest review for this product bundle on Amazon(where I bought it) :

 "There are no secrets to losing weight. Eat less and make better choices, work out regularly and use supplements to help with snacking and cravings. I do all three with much success. No more sugar, no more crazy carb cravings and I am regular too! I use both of these products as well as eat 5 meals/snacks a day of veggies, proteins and low glycemic fruits. I have lost and kept off 32 lbs for the past year, and am happy to be back in my tiny pre-baby clothing. My cravings and crazy appetite for naughty foods is all gone and I feel clean and healthy. I am super happy, have lots of energy and love my daily workouts ranging from boxing, to Pilates and race training. I am almost 40 and have the energy that I did in my 20s. I recommend this bundle to all who are healthy and trying to lose weight the healthy way."

Need more Info??I always want to know what it IN the supplements I am taking:

This from the company:


Weight Loss and Fat Burning has Never Been Easier with Garcinia Cambogia Advanced and Super Cleanse!

Your FAVORITE TV Doctor demands
-Where did the Fruit come from?
-Is the extract 100% pure?
-Does it have the right dose per serving?
-Does it contain at least 60% HCA?

Garcinia Cambogia Advanced was developed with the TV doctor's strict criteria for the proper Garcinia Supplement. Here's his recommendation, which is seen on his website... The good TV doctor recommends taking 800mg twice a day, 30 minutes before meals (That's 1600mg a day total). ...He recommends that the product be 100% pure, have absolutely no fillers, no binders, no artificial ingredients and in a pure vegetarian capsule. And most importantly they must contain at least 60% HCA, which is the key to weight loss.

Super Cleanse is a 7 day all natural gentle and controllable method to break up and flush away POUNDS of unwanted toxins and build up from the walls of your colon and intestines.

Sponsored Review: UNi Pure Moroccan Argan Oil

                  Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Hello Dear Readers:

 I have been so fortunate to test out several oils, including Argan, and Rose and Vitamin C. I do care about my skin and hair as I age. And, I love trying natural,pure ingredients to keep my hair looking soft and bouncy and my skin clear and youthful. The UNi Argan Oil arrived in a pretty little bottle. Upon opening it, I noticed that it was virtually scent-less and pure. I put a couple of drops onto my fingers and rubbed it into the dry ends of my curls and my hair felt super soft.

Since I received the UNi via Amazon, here is my honest review:

"I started using my UNi Pure Moroccan Argan Oil right away and noticed that my skin started feeling softer and silkier right away. I put a few drops into my hand and rub the oil into the dry ends of my curls and comb it in. Then any excess I rub into my hands and arms and face. I have been using this amazing oil for several weeks now and love the difference in the softness of my skin.I dont mind the subtle scent, it is mostly scentless with the tiniest touch of an oily scent. Not unpleasant and barely noticeable. As soon as I rub it into my skin and hair, it is no longer there. I love Argan Oil and the UNI is pure and unadulterated. It is not diluted, and works wonderfully. I love the dropper application so I dont spill out too much."

You can find the UNi on Amazon HERE. And my review HERE.

Checking in after the #21DSD and let summer begin.:)

Hello Dear Readers:

  I wanted to post a quick update on how things are here after my 21 Day Sugar Detox. Seriously and honestly, it was easy. Just a longer detox week from Revolt with no fruit/yogurt or smoothies. The only food I really missed for that three weeks were my daily smoothies. And now that I haven't had them I cannot get back into making one every afternoon. Oh well, I will when it is consistently hot out!  And speaking of the weather, it is starting to get HOT here in the beautiful Hudson Valley, finally. I switched my winter clothes out for my spring/summer and I am ready to go.  Ana finished her  last week of school and we have lots of fun activities planned for the summer including musical theatre camp, the beach and plenty of swimming and parktime. Also, I have started to plan my 40th (ugh) which will be here before I know it. I have chosen my theme and am starting to create /find recipes for the munchies and activities.

In the meantime, I have plenty of reviews coming up....some giveaways..and lots of fun!  Here are some recent photos from our very busy daily lives.

               Ana's Last Day of School,she had a lovely picnic and some outdoor time with her friends.

                                                            Cupcakes are the best!!

An outtake from a very recent photo shoot for some upcoming reviews. Ana jumped in and wanted her photo taken too!!

 Ana and her bestie during a student film shoot at Vassar, they are soooo adorable together.

Sponsored Review: Gutsy Chewy Oral and Digestive Supplement

  I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet™ program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer.

This product contains papaya and should not be used by people with a latex allergy. Keep out of reach of children.

  Hello Dear Readers:

 I have another great new product to introduce today: Gutsy Chewy Supplements. I received a nice selection of both flavors (citrus and wildberry) to try out. And they arrived at the perfect time for me to participate in a sugar detox and eat super clean.  I eat a lot of vegetables and protein and tend to add either garlic or onion and lots of hot, spicy spices such as hot sauce and or red pepper.  These spices and onions tend to make my stomach hurt (especially at night), so I have been sooooo happy to have some Gutsy Chewy on hand.

What is Gutsy Chewy? 

 From the company: "Gutsy Products promote oral and digestive health with a proprietary blend of nature’s remedies. So the next time you have that queasy, uneasy, refluxy feeling®, with GutBurn™ and GutBloat™ after eating, gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan-friendly Gutsy products can help. "

They contain a proprietary blend of apple cider vinegar, licorice extract and papaya extract (GiGs®). GiGs® has been shown to be effective in treating GutBurn™ and GutBloat™. Xylitol is used in Gutsy Chewy to aid oral health, while calcium and magnesium are included to fortify the bodies stores of these important minerals.

  Gutsy Chewy comes in a handy 8-pack tube that’s easy to travel with. The retail price for Gutsy Chewy ranges from $15.99 to $79.99 (2 - 12 tubes), depending on volume purchased. Each order also has a cost of $4.99 to cover shipping and handling.Gutsy Products is an American company founded by Harvard trained dentist and Cleveland clinic trained gastroenterologist, Dr. Doug Haghighi.  I was lucky enough to attend an online seminar to hear how the company started and to hear answers to the bloggers' questions.

 The company offers scientifically proven natural  products designed to enhance digestive health and maintain oral health. They can be used for that after eating Queasy, Uneasy, 
Refluxy Feeling® associated with common digestive discomforts.  Each of their products is all-natural and contains a safe and effective dose designed to deliver results.

Sounds great huh?Yes, I think so too. And now Gutsy Chewy has found a happy place in my supplement supply and when I need  to attend to my digestive problems.

Sponsored Post and Giveaway! : $25 Walmart Giftcard via Secret Clinical Strength Ooh-La-La Lavender Scent Advanced Solid Antiperspirant/Deodorant

Sponsored Post: The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by Secret.

Hello Dear Readers:

 I work out. A lot. And I sweat. Sometimes, a lot.  But I always feel secure that I will not smell badly during or after a good workout because I use Secret Clinical Strength Ooh-La-La Lavender Scent Advanced Solid Antiperspirant/Deodorant. I love the soothing scent of Lavender and I feel better knowing it works! Whether I am running outside, or taking a Pilates class inside, I smell great!! Why?  Here is more info from Secret:

"Secret Clinical Strength Ooh-La-La Lavender Deodorant was formulated to combat stress sweat, which comes from a different gland than normal sweat, causing more bacteria and more odor. This clinical strength deodorant for women has specially developed odor-fighting capsules that gives you four times the protection from stress sweat. It absorbs odor while releasing scent to keep you smelling clean and feeling dry. Enjoy all-day coverage with this 2.6-oz Secret Clinical Strength antiperspirant's incredible protection, no matter what the day may bring. It also has skin-soothing conditioners, so you can wear sleeveless shirts and dresses with confidence.

Secret Clinical Strength Ooh-La-La Lavender Scent Advanced Solid Antiperspirant/Deodorant, 2.6 oz:

  • Prescription-strength wetness protection with skin-soothing conditioners
  • Four times the protection from stress sweat
  • Odor-fighting capsules that absorb odor all day long
  • 2.6oz of Secret clinical strength antiperspirant

Walmart is a one-stop-shop for all of your personal care needs. Find Secret Clinical Strength products at your local Walmart store or online at .I bought my Secret from Walmartonline HERE!! 

Secret Clinical helps protect against the three causes of sweat:

  • ·         Heat
  • ·         Activity
  • ·         Stress Sweat – especially stress sweat!
                                              This is how secure I feel in my Secret!! 

Why does stress sweat smell worse?

·         Sweat caused by physical activity and temperature is produced by eccrine sweat glands, and is 99% water and 1% nutrients
·         But stress sweat produced from the apocrine gland increases bacterial, and Water + Nutrients + Bacteria = Odor
Available in three varieties and four scents:
·         New! Clear Gel
o   No white marks
·         New! Invisible Solid
o   Goes on dry and stays dry
·         Smooth Solid
o   Contains skin smoothing conditioners

  • ·         Completely Clean
  • ·         Powder Protection
  • ·         Ooh-la-la Lavender
  • ·         Sport Fresh"

I will have to try the other scents, but for now I am a big supporter of La La Lavender and have a bunch for what I hope to be a warm, sweaty fun summer. I am running a race,and have lots of fun outdoor exercises planned.

Getting Healthy with Kara Bohack at Holistic Healing and Nutrition.

Hello Dear Readers:

  I am so excited to tell you about a new experience starting in my healthy journey of weight loss, exercise and nutrition.  For some time now I have told you all about the Revolt exercise and food plan, and eating clean & Paleo-based for about a year. Well, now I am taking my health to the next level through a series of meetings with Kara Bohack of Holistic Healing and Nutrition in Poughkeepsie, NY.  I have been an acquaintance of Kara's for some time now online, and was excited to meet her in person. She is a great influence on me trying the 21 day sugar detox (which I am halfway through) and always posts  healthy recipes and ideas on facebook and other social networks. You can find out more info about meeting with Kara at the links below.

 Upon arrival at the office, I could tell that the vibe was warm, friendly and open. The space is built in an open style, and there were children quietly playing in the waiting room. Since I had Ana with me, she dove right into the blocks and made herself at home.  I was handed several sheets of paperwork to fill out (by a friendly office assistant/receptionist) which included me writing down my case history and any major symptoms. Basically, why I was meeting for Holistic Healing.   I wrote down a few symptoms including weight control, bloating and gas, general overall health and of course no appetite, which I experience from time to time. Also,  this included a  checklist and I had to check any or all symptoms ranging from painful PMS, to weight gain etc...
A friendly , smiling Kara greeted me for my testing. 

  Then. once I filled out the sheets I was brought into a small room and the Nutrition Response Testing began. What is Nutrition Response Testing?? Well, there is a lot of information on the internet about the specifics but I am going to break it down in an easy to understand way.  And if you follow the links below, you can read up on all of the technical terms and specifics.

  Basically, the test starts with  analysis, assessing my current health status and then once that is determined a natural health program is designed for my individual needs.  It is much cooler than it sounds.

   I had to lay down and relax on a padded table and different points of my neurological reflexes were tested with various foods and assorted chemicals.  I have to mention that at the time of my first test, I was taking a strong antibiotic which the testing picked up on right away. It was amazing that right away it picked up on the medications in my body(I may retake the test after the antibiotic is out of my system). Here is an example of the kind of testing. Something like this (which I found on youtube):

 It was so very cool and Kara is very patient and good at it. She explained what each part of the process was as my muscle reactions took place, and also what I was sensitive to.  I was given paperwork explaining exactly what the Nutrition Response Testing entailed and having read through it, was excited to heal myself through designed nutrition.   Designed Clinical Nutrition is basically whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder and it is prepared without hurting any of the active enzymes and components.  These tablets use the Standard Process method which has several elements involved.

 Standard Process  nutrients come from plants that are grown on their own farms, in pesticide free soil, and with no chemicals. The machinery involved in the processing of these products  is made of glass and stainless steel only and  the temperature used in processing harvested plants is never raised above 90 degrees F. The active ingredients are not cooked, they remain active, alive and have a very long shelf life.

Holistic Healing and Nutrition uses products from the Energetix Line. More info HERE. 

The list that was generated for me using this test included Spanish Black Radish, Parotid PMG, and Super -EFF.

I found this info on the Standard Process website:

"Spanish Black Radish, organically grown, provides support for the body's organs.
  • Contains a high concentration of glucosinolate metabolites which induce the body's detoxification enzymes
  • Supports healthy liver and gallbladder function
  • Encourages healthy digestion
  • Supports the body's normal toxin-elimination function
Parotid PMG supports the saliva-producing parotid gland.
  • Provides uniquely derived nucleoprotein-mineral extracts that support cellular health
  • Supports healthy parotid gland function

Super-EFF supports the central and peripheral nervous systems.
  • Supports and helps maintain cellular health
  • Provides precursors for energy production
  • Contains trace amounts of essential fatty acids†"
 So where do I go from here??. I have made my next appointment which will fine tune my nutritional program and go over  my food list as well as evaluating any supplements that I already take.  Then after about 3 to 6 office visits I will move into Step 2 or a 12 week healing and observation period. Then my check ups will move from once a week to every other week. I will be writing more about that in my next posting . Until then, please check out all of the links below and contact Kara for any more information. I am so excited about this journey. I cant wait for optimum health from inside out.

Important Links:

Please keep in mind that there is a fabulous prepayment plan available. and follow up visits are completely affordable. Senior Citizens receive a 10% discount. Children of clients receive 40% off.

Please note, I received complimentary services in exchange for this review. The opinions within are my own and I stand behind my opinions.

I have never used Vitamin C Serum for face before trying Nature's Best. Now, I am a total convert.

I really enjoy the light scent, and texture, and non greasy feel. I do not feel residue anymore. I worry about creating collagen as I leave my 30s, but my skin looks tight and soft and my fine lines are diminishing.. This is a great product and they are up front with their ingredients. i will be a repeat customer. It is a great value and a great product.

Sponsored : Valentia Even Glow VItamin C Serum for Beautiful Skin

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Hello Dear Readers:
  For a few weeks now, I have been using the amazing Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum! My skin looks fabulous. It is so clear, and bright and it smells great too. I love the scent of Even Glow in the morning.  I know that there are a lot of skin care products out there on the market, but I have to be pretty picky because I don't like a lot of perfumed products, nor do I like that thick, heavy moisturizer feel.  Even Glow is light, and absorbent and it has so many great ingredients. I am super picky about ingredients. Check them out below, I am really impressed. See my photo below for how my skin looks!!

From the company:
  • Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles. In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin. 

  • ***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C's effect on the skin. 

  • Organic Rosehip Seed Oil & Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend -

  •  Vitamin C Resistem (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.

  •  Hyaluronic Acid (Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion 

  • Green Tea Extact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.

 This wonderful Vitamin C Serum for Face is easy to find on Amazon HERE, and I even wrote up a great review found HERE.

Check out the Official Site HERE, for more info.

Want to know more?? Here is what  Valentia Skin Care NEW - EVEN GLOW SERUM - 20% Vitamin C can do for you:

  With 98% Natural Ingredients it :

  •  EVENS SKIN TONE: Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration, replacing uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.

  •  INCREASES GLOW and RADIANCE: Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.

  •  ABSORBS RAPIDLY: Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance. This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling or cracked skin, even in extreme weather. 

  •  BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION: The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance. 

  •  REDUCES WRINKLES & FINE LINES: Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger. 

Sounds amazing right? Well the proof is in the pudding. Here is a recent photo after using Valentia Even Glow:

This was taken early in the morning before makeup and all that. I dont look a day over 39, j/k. I think my skin looks smooth and youthful, definitely NOT almost 40.

Sponsored: Bing in the Classroom #adfreesearch

 This article is sponsored by Bing.

Hello Dear Readers:

    If you are like me then you are super careful on how much screen time. and what content is on the screen when your child or children are busy watching television or surfing the internet.  Ana loves her ipad and uses it daily, but sometimes I get nervous if she is in a different room or starts searching youtube for videos and I do not know exactly what she is watching. I try and limit her usage (especially on the television) and control all of the content. The dvr is a big help with this as well as Netflix for on demand movies and videos.  I use the dvr to fast forward through the commercials, which is a big help. 

 When she is at school I feel confident that she is not being exposed to information that is not safe or appropiate for school aged children. During the summer. when I take over her education and we work on reading and writing, as well as online educational games. I feel better knowing that I control her content exposure. And Bing can help with that.   They have invented Bing in the Classroom,to helo control and remove content not appropiate for young eyes. How does it work? :
"Bing in the Classroom removes ads and blocks searches from being used for personalized advertising for all Bing searches done through the school’s network, making Bing the only major search engine to provide a search offering tailored specifically for the classroom. Bing is offering #adfreesearch for all schools, which includes the removal of all advertising, strict filters for adult content, and enhanced privacy protection.
