MONDAY ~ MONDAY Inspiration

Good morning Monday, they day of the week we all dread, back to school, work and alarms for the next week. Hope everyone gets off to a great start on this beautiful Monday! I wanted to share with you a great thought everyone should remember as we move forward with the week. 

Always remember that you are braver than you believe. Stronger than you seem. Smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagined. 

Have a great week you all!

Good Morning FRIDAY!


Good morning friends, it's FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIDAY! 

Even though I don't work outside of the home, I am always glad to see Friday arrive, that means we have no alarm for a few days. YEA! 

Do you have plans for this wonderful weekend? We have no real plans for this weekend, just to lounge around the house, I have a few blog post to get out this weekend. We have a snow storm heading our way and are expecting a few inches of snow tomorrow. I am so ready for winter to be over already and the spring blossoms to start popping out. How has your winter been? 

Have a great weekend! 

Until next time!

ThermalLabs Glow2Go Product Review

Disclosure: I received a free box of Glow2Go  Self Tanning Towelettes for my review, all opinions are my own. 

Glow2Go is a brand new innovative product, everyone is talking about. I absolutely loved these tanning towelettes! They are by far the best self-tanning product I have ever used. The packaging is wonderful as well, they come in handy individually wrapped packets so they can be used anytime and anywhere. I was impressed with the fact that the results we're amazing no streaks, no orange tint either. 

Each box contains 20 single use individually wrapped towelettes. 

You have to make sure to shower and exfoliate before use. The instructions are as follows:

Remove towelette from package, unfold and apply all over your body. Use sparingly around ankles, knees, and elbows. Wait 10 minutes before dressing. Wash hand thoroughly after use. Avoid eye contact. If you want deeper result, you can reapply after four hours. Repeat daily until you achieve the results you are looking for. DO NOT SHAVE WITHIN 24 HOURS of use. 

The packaging is very neat that the side of the box is perforated making it a wonderful dispenser. 

The wipes measure 7-1/2 X 7-1/2 inches they are white in color and are not really wet per say, if you are tanning your entire body from head to toe you may need to use two wipes. 

Each Wipe is concentrated with innovative tan formula that will produce:

  • Quick
  • Even
  • Streak Free
  • Natural Looking Tan in 4 Hours or Less
  • You'll be Amazed at the Results

I was a bit skeptical at first so I wanted to make sure I had no where to go for a few days before I used and I was impressed by the outcome. These are definitely a value, you can get them from ThermalLabs on Amazon here

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! I was so lucky to be able to receive the BoxyCharm "Jingle Belles" box for December 2014. This BoxyCharm is a monthly subscription box is a fabulous find, for only $21.00 per month you get 4-5 full size high-end beauty products delivered to you door. 

This list of products I received:

What's Inside:
  • Coastal Scents Revealed Palette (full size)
  • Lina Lashes Luxury Mink Lashes (full size)
  • Mistura Beauty solutions Retractable Beauty brush (full size)
  • Be A Bombshell Lip Product (full size)
  • Eva NYC Hair Products (travel size)

The CS palette is full size the real deal, with twenty different shadows in matte, shimmers and glittery neutrals incredibly pigmented and not at all chalky, we love this palette. This was the best item by far in this month's box.

EYELASHI MINK LASHES - $29.00 Retail Value

I have not yet had an opportunity to try out the lashes, these are beautiful. The lashes are made from real pink fur which is collected cruelty free and can be worn up to 40 times. After we experiment I will report back.


You can never seem to have enough brushes. The brush is super soft and retractable for ease on the go. 

BE A BOMBSHELL LIP GLOSS - $14.00 Retail Value

The lip gloss, at first I was unsure of the color as it was bright looking and very shimmery, but overall all the color was great, it was not too sticky, but did not seem to last long. This would work great over a lipstick. 


I have never heard of this brand until now and am very excited to report the result back after using for some time. 

This was an amazing box to get. I loved the fact that the products were full sized and not samples. And for $21.00 a month to subscribe why not for almost $120.00 worth of products. I love the palette and the brush is fab as well. 

I loved this box! Overall the December box was full of great surprises and I was not disappointed at all. I have been introduced to some new brands. What are your thoughts on this month's box? Do you subscribed?

Garcinia Cambogia Extract 85% HCA Complex Supplements by Summit Nutrition Review

Garcinia Cambogia Extract 85% HCA Complex Supplements by Summit Nutrition Review

I had the opportunity to try this product at no cost in return for my honest opinion. I had heard so much about these pills over the last year, I was super excited to try them. Here is what Summit Nutritions has to say about their product.

Product Information:

  •  WHY SUMMIT NUTRITIONS GARCINIA CAMBOGIA? - Our Garcinia Cambogia is 100% Natural, it is extracted only from the natural source (Not synthesized in lab) by using natural water(Scientifically Developed Patented Extraction Method), a traditional Ayurveda method by eliminating the use of harsh solvent like alcohol, acetone etc.
  •  85% HCA MAXIMUM STRENGHT FORMULA - Summit Nutritions Garcinia Cambogia has more than 85% HCA complex which includes real and legitimate (Third party Tested in US according to standardization of USP/NF) approximate 72% (-) HCA and its in stabilized form with complex of natural lactones of HCA, Citric Acid and Mineral of Natural calcium
  •  NATURAL SOURCE OF CALCIUM - It also serve as source of natural calcium since the calcium is from the plant itself in is natural form. No artificial Calcium is added.

We also provide the assurance of 100% Satisfaction or Money back Guarantee to assure return on your investment. We would like to be part of your weight loss goal.

I had gotten this product over the holiday season to try, and am happy to report that these really do work as stated. I took 1 capsule before breakfast with a full glass of water and 1 capsule before lunch with a full glass of water. What I noticed was that I had more energy and my appetite was decreased, sometimes I had to almost force myself to eat. I did in fact loose several pounds, 4 pounds within the first week with the Garcinia Cambogia. In my opinion it it really important to drink plenty of water with these pills and it also helps flushing fat. I did not change my eating habit or exercise regimen as I was taking these pills. Also I must note that on a few occasions when I did not eat I noticed my stomach would feel a bit queezy, I would recommend making sure that you eat as directed while taking the pills. As we all are well aware there is no magic diet pill to help you shed the pounds. 

there is another real plus to this supplement they are made in the USA, and I know there are many who prefer USA made. 

You can purchase the Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract from Summit Nutritions on Amazon for $27.99 for a month's supply. 

I received this product from for my unbiased review and opinion. Either way I only recommend products I use and believe will be good for my readers.

AYL Silicone Gloves-Reviewed- Get Ready to Throw Out Your Old Oven Mitts

AYL Silicone Heat Resistant Grilling BBQ Gloves

Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.  I only received products for my review and take no monetary exchange.

I loved these silicone gloves, they are quite useful. They are very soft, flexible and pliable, yet keep your hands cool and allow you to grip anything from the oven to the grill. You are also able to wash them so there is no need to worry about getting them dirty. Even the kids could not wait to try them out. My three year old grandson especially thought they were pretty cool to try on. 

The AYL Silicone gloves are also designed very nice, made out of a soft silicone. They are also interchangeable on your hands as well, so no need to worry which one you are grabbing it will fit either hand. You are able to use these gloves for many things around your kitchen as well as grilling, I even use them as pot-holders.  I find that I prefer these over my old style oven mitts, which we're cloth. I am excited to be able to replace my old style oven mitts. 

The gloves are heat resistant up to 425 degrees, They are waterproof and easy to clean. I throw mine right into the dishwasher when needed. The gloves are one-size fits all so everyone in the family is able to use them as well. I loved the heart designed gripers on these gloves as well. They are back by a free lifetime warranty, AYL Silicone Gloves are wonderful and would make great gifts for Mother's Day, Father's Day or any other time when you are in need of the perfect gift for the person who does a lot of cooking or grilling. 

I think these are well worth the money, if you grill a lot or use your oven frequently. I would definitely recommend these for others, I was very pleased with the performance and quality of the AYL Silicone Gloves.
