Daily Skin Care - Organic Vitamin C Serum - #Review

When it comes to daily skin care, I always make sure to use natural and organic products such as Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula. It only takes a few drops of this wonderful serum to apply for a refreshed and smoother complexion. After you have applied be sure to use a moisturizer and re-apply at night as well. 

My skin is softer, it helps to decrease fine line wrinkles, and I even have a glow after using this product. I highly recommend that you use Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula in your skincare routine if you'd like to have natural and glowing results!

Here are some facts on this product: 

  • Contains the perfect ratio of Vitamin C (20%) - a critical component in collagen production, for skin that's softer, smoother and more youthful looking. (More is not necessarily better.)
  • Uses the power of Hyaluronic Acid, which holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water, enabling your skin to stay hydrated and fresh looking.
  • A unique blend of organic and natural anti-aging ingredients designed to rejuvenate skin while aiding with redness, acne scars and sun spots.
  • Works beautifully on all skin types and is designed especially for women over 30 years old.
  • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving a more youthful glow.

**I was able to test/review this product  for my honest opinions as I have shared with you above. I personally test out all products before conducting a written review! Reviews are what helps you and me in purchasing quality products!**

Girls Scout Friendship Dolls - #Review

As a young girl I always dreamed of becoming a Girl Scout. The friendships, working together, earning badges, the great outdoors, all of those things were soo exciting to me as a young girl.

Unfortunately I never got to join the Girl Scouts but I decided if I ever had a daughter of my own I would give her that opportunity to join if she chose to!

My Princess accepted and she is a Daisy in the Girl Scouts and she LOVES it! She is very proud to be a part of a great troop and has made many friendships with all of the girls. The Girl Scouts is a very fun experience and it helps to build character, courage, and confidence!

The Girl Scouts has been around for over 100 years and is empowering girls everywhere to make a difference by joining The Girl Scouts!

I had the opportunity to review one of the three all NEW Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls!
I personally chose to review Carina (pictured above) because remarkably my daughter's middle name is Carina and I knew she'd get a kick out of a doll that had her middle name!

Carina is a soft plush doll wearing a stylish purple outfit and of course the Girl Scout Juniors sash. Included with the doll are Girl Scout stickers that feature badges/achievements that your girl can place on her sash just like the real Girl Scouts with their badges! The back of the box features a few of Carina's interests and even her favorite Girl Scout cookies! If your girl is in the scouts or thinking about joining, the Girl Scout Friendship Dolls make a great gift!

You can find Carina and the two other dolls Chloe and Carly at the official Girl Scouts Online StoreThey typically go for $19.99 but if you order now they are selling them for only $16.99 while supplies last!

ALSO: The colorful, collectible new trio of Girl Scouts Friendship Dolls is now available at WalMart stores nationwide and online at, and

 Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place! Just read the Girl Scout Promise and Law below:

Happy New Year - 2015 #NewYear

Happy New Year, its now 2015! Have you made a list of New Years Resolutions?
Goals for the year? Dreams you would like to fulfill?

Here is my list of goals for 2015:

Eat better (eat balanced meals to put on weight)
I know everyone is usually trying to lose weight but in my case I need to gain weight! I'm roughly
at/around 90 lbs and I've lost most of my muscle I had gained last Summer during the winter months.
My goal is to eat small meals every few hours, most will include high amounts of protein. For example breakfast was 2 hard boiled eggs this morning and a biscuit with coffee. A few hours from now I will have a clementine and some celery sticks with peanut butter. Anything to add on some extra nutrients, along with protein, and fuel for my system!

Keeping the house Organized:
I almost always can find everyone elses stuff in the house but when it comes to my own stuff, I have everything scattered around. I need to keep my stuff organized, labeled, filed, put in a cube storage, etc! It has to be done before I go crazy! I already have slight OCD, my cluttery storage system isn't working for me!

Read more books:
I have a Kindle Fire HDX, I have e-books, I also have print books, I love to read! I want to read more books, I need to take the time to actually read more! There are many books I want to read this year, Game of Thrones series, the Hunger Games, True Blood Series, The Bible (study/devotion), and many more!

Do More Outside:
Walking,, walking the dog, playing with the kids, biking, just taking in the sun.
When I'm outside I tend to feel better health wise as long as its not over 100 % I'm good!

Take on Crafting Projects:
Kids love crafts, I love crafts, I want to have a craft of the week or bi-monthly, etc.. I typically craft items for Holiday decorating but I want to take on some projects that will be challenging yet fun!

We garden every year, I want to have a plan for my gardening this year. Location, fruits/veggies to grow, watering schedules, etc.. Last year my cucumbers didn't make it, this year I hope that they do! We plan on planting tomatoes, cucumbers, blueberries, romaine, green onions, maybe try to plant pumpkins for the fall! The kids would love growing their own pumpkins. I also plant flowers, I love having flowers all over the front porch, brightens things up!

Plan a fun-filled vacation:
I say plan because we have a big family. We need to figure out location, lodging, activities we will participate in, food options. There's a lot of planning that goes into our vacations! I believe this year we will vacation in Tennessee and I hope to go to one of the local beaches, we loved Ocracoke last year even though its on the pricier side with all the kids! I also want to a mini-getaway for me and my Teddy Bear (boating event, mountain getaway, etc..).

Save more, spend less:
This is something we need to do. Budgeting is vital with a big family that not only includes kids but also our pets! I plan on taking on some extreme couponing and sticking to lists/sales/etc..

There is more but I'm off to do some house cleaning!
Check back for makeup/beauty tips by me with pictures!
