Whiffits Review

     Do you wake up in the morning and think, I wish I could find a weight loss program that will work for me.  Maybe you are not looking to lose but 10 pounds and you just can't seem to get it gone.  Well, I have been the opportunity to try out Whiffits.  I am not a person that you would consider to be over weight by far but I would love to lose a few pounds and firm up before summer.

    I have just recently received a sample and only used it a few times.  From what I have experienced in the last few days I will tell you that this product is awesome.  It really does help you with the mid afternoon cravings.  I am an afternoon junkie and while I was using these I ate a reasonable lunch and wasn't hungry again until supper time.  It also helped with with that pre bed snack that I just enjoyed for the heck of it!  Now I don't need nor want a snack.

     Because I have only started using the whiffits, I will have a follow up post in a bout a week or two so that I can confirm that they really work well and give my final opinion of them!  Just from the small amount of usage I have used them for so far I love them!

Because Whiffits is so great they have not only given me a sample to try but they are also going to give me one to give away!  Keep posted because next week I will give my final thoughts on them and start the giveaway for one lucky reader!

New Social group Zurker

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zurker Inc. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Zurker Logo

I have joined a new social media group called Zurker.  It was released 12*1*2011 and entered private beta 1*22*2012.  As of today there are currently 422,252 open accounts.  I have only been a member for a few days but I have to admit I have meet some really cool people with the same interest that I have and very friendly. 

     I have to admit that I am a social media junkie, if it is new I like to try it out and see what is about.  If I like it I will share, if I don't well, lets just say not many people here about it.  With that said I would recommend that you too check out Zurker.  You can upload pictures, make new friends, and earn vshares while doing it.  Where most social media groups are owned by corporate companies but zurker is owned by its members.  I like to say own a piece of anything!

     If you are currently not a member and would like to become a member you can check out my Zurker profile and join there!  I would love for you to join the group and then follow me.  With the Zurker community you can also add tags which are not available on so many other media groups such as friend, family, etc.  These tags are not visible to anyone but you so your privacy is with only you!

Little Angels Review and Giveaway

 Little Angels Prayers for Every Day
Roma Downey with Illustrator Lisa Reed

About the Book
Little Angels Prayers for Every Day features more than 50 simple rhyming prayers that cover a typical day and the typical worries of a young child. From waking in the morning to going to sleep at night, from thanking God for a meal to praying for His comfort when afraid, the prayers here will help little ones to see that any moment is a good moment to talk to God. Relevant Bible verses are scattered throughout the book as well!

My Thoughts

When I first received this little book I had the chance to look at for a moment by myself.  I thought it was just the cutest little thing there is.  Especially if you are like me and trying to teach your children to be thankful for the things they have instead of wanting everything they see.  I did not make it through 1/4 of the book before my 4 year old came in the room and said "Did you get me a book"?  How can I say no, right?  So I told her we got a book to help teach us to be thankful for our food, toys, and friends that God has blessed us with.  It was really great because the book not only gives you prayers for before eating or even going to bed, but it also gave simple little prayers for those times when you are scared, lonely, or just really feeling thankful. 
     This is just the perfect little book of prayers and I recommend this for anyone and everyone who has children that you are trying to teach how to pray and things to pray for!  But for one lucky of Southern Mom of 4 I have a copy to giveaway.  Enjoy and Good Luck!

VeggieTales: The Little House That Stood
Release Day Tuesday, March 5

About The Little House That Stood
When the Three Little Pigs roll into Cabbageville looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue! Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, but only Bob builds his houses on a firm foundation - following the wise plans from the Master Builder's Handbook! Will the Little Piggies make the right choices when it comes to building their houses - and their lives - on solid ground? Find out in this parable that shows kids when they follow God's blueprints, then can stand strong when the storms come!

My Thoughts:
First I must admit that one of my favorite Bible stories is the one about the Wise man and the Foolish man.  I guess maybe because the song I used to sing as a child, and it had hand motions.  This movie is a great film for the family and my 4 year old has thoroughly enjoyed it over and over again. Just as soon as I brought the movie in and opened the box Riley (my 4 year old) screams Mama you bought me a new movie.  I have walked around my house singing the wise man built his house upon the rock...

     My baby girl loves the talking veggies and I enjoy letting her watch a really good and educational film.  This is a film that I would definitely recommend to any family, or even to a church group.  In fact I am taking my copy so Riley's class can watch it when they have the story of the foolish man and the wise man.  I think I have enjoyed this one as much as my 8 and 4 year olds.

Loreal BB Cream ~Review~

     I received a free sample of the BB Cream from +SheSpeaks to try it out and get my thoughts.  So here it goes...

     Prior to trying the BB cream I used foundation and then I had to use powder to get my  perfect look I was going for.  It took about 20 minutes to go through the routine of the foundation, powder, eye makeup, etc.    Then I received my sample of the BB cream and I couldn't wait to try it out.    I went to use the cream and I noticed that it was white looking.  I wasn't sure I had the right stuff but still I was willing to get a whirl.  I applied the cream just as I would the foundation and noticed that the white cream was in fact tinted but not over tinted, it was just perfect.  It also worked as a concealer and powder which alleviated that process of the new me!

     Since I have tried this cream I am a new fan!  It moisturizes while giving that perfect skin that we are always trying to achieve when apply make-up.  I would recommend this to anyone who does not have a lot of time to spend on making themselves beautiful.  I can't speak for everyone but I am changing up and going straight BB cream! <3

~Perfect Spring Dresses~ UPDATED

     Are you looking for a new dress or maybe a new spring top?  Eshakti has an awesome selection of Spring dresses, tops, skirts and jackets!  I love Eshakti for many different reasons but one of my favorites is that no matter what size you wear, they carry it.  And if you have an odd shape for a better choice of words you can get a custom made dress.  I am one of the lucky odd balls, and I have a hard time finding dresses to fit me properly. I am small build but I do not have the perfect body shape and finding a dress to properly fit is a nightmare, usually the dresses just hang on me.  I also like long, ankle length dresses even though the style may be mini- or even midi.

     If you are looking that perfect Spring Dress I have an offer you can't resist.  Eshakti has given me a promo code for 20% off for my readers. All you have to do is enter JENBLZZRD in the promotional code box, there is no minimum order and the code can be used unlimited number of times. This code can also be used with other gift codes or coupons but can NOT be used on the over stock category or on previous purchases.  The sale period for this code is 2*26*13 to 3*10*13 so hurry and get your sales on...

     Once you find that perfect outfit come back here and share your selection with us, I would love to see the different styles you chose!

Man cave anyone???

     I hear of all these men that have Man Caves, and think how much I would love to make for my hubby!  Since we don't have a lot of extra space and rooms available I decided that I needed to find something that is much more useful for both a man cave and a place to work. With gladiator garageworks you can have just that!   Plus I also get a place to store some of the things that I need, while keeping it all hid from the naked eye.

     I am always needing a tool that he has but I don't know where to go to find them.  At gladiator garageworks they offer anything from tool boxes, work benches, bike racks, and storage cabinets.  So you can store your bike for those months that it is just too cold to get out and ride, and have all of his tools neatly organized, while giving him a neat and tidy little place to work.  I suppose for some men this would not be much of a man cave but you have to know my hubby.  David is a man that has to be busy working on something all the time, so even when friends stop by he is working.  This way he can work while friends hang out.

     Maybe you are one of those extreme couponers and you need a place to store all of your free purchases.  They have some of the greatest storage lockers, and cabinets that look great and keeps everything organized. I myself do not do the extreme coupons, but I do tend to stock up on a really good buy.  I use the cabinets for those extra paper towel rolls and then my hubby knows where they are if he needs one too!
