At you will discover a great new way for marketing your business or sharing some news! Instead of the typical boring birthday card or letter, why not send a Frisbee?  It doesn’t need an envelope. It gets delivered as is.   It’s a fun gift that will surely bring a smile to the recipients face.

I received a Frisbee with Ask Away’s logo on it. How cool!! Now when I am outside with the pups and with company in the summer, we can toss around my Frisbee.  Plus everyone can learn more about my blog.  This would be so cool as a gift idea for a kid!!

Journey Gym Review

I work out a lot more than I used to but I have had some major motivation issues.  One of the things that makes working out difficult for me is my busy life.  Sometimes I’m on the go a lot, sometimes I am just so exhausted after work that I don’t feel like going to the gym. I just want to be in the comfort of my own home. Well, this is where the Journey Gym comes into play. 

The Journey Gym allows you to workout in the convenience of your own home.  Or, if you aren’t at home but you don’t have the convenience of a gym near you, it brings it to you! The Journey Gym packs up into a very convenient size that is super easy to carry with you.  It’s also very discreet.

When I received the Journey Gym, I was thrilled.  It comes with 30 resistance bands which can make a customizable resistance of 5 to 75 pounds per side. How cool is that?!  That was perfect for me since I’ve really been trying to tone my arms and upper body.   They were super easy to set up and very durable.  I love the adjustable handles that came with the Journey Gym.  It’s super important to have correct positioning when you use resistance bands. 

The Journey Gym also comes with a full set of legs which creates a stair stepper which is perfect for my cardio workouts.  I am thrilled!!!! 

How do you know the right way to set up the Journey Gym, you ask?  Well, the Journey Gym comes with a DVD that has a 5 minute set up video, a 10 minute circuit tone workout and a 20 minute circuit strength workout.  This DVD was very easy to follow and the workout was quick and fun.  I didn’t find myself getting bored like I normally would. 

The Journey Gym is now a huge part of my workout routine and since using it, I have noticed a significantly greater change in my weight and inches on my waist. I am so thrilled and I highly recommend this awesome product!

Also, you get free shipping to the US or Canada when you purchase a Journey Gym, and you can even make installment payments! 

My Advice:  If you are having trouble staying motivated or making excuses, look no further than the Journey Gym!

Awesome Knit Hats - Made by my friend!

Friday, March 30, 2012

Okay, so I have a friend who makes these amazing knit hats!  She contacted me after I did a post about celebrities and their knit hats. She actually knits these hats herself!  Knit hats are always in, and they are great for windy days. Not only do they keep your head warm but they will gently keep your hair in place!  She is a great friend and such a sweet lady.  Here are a few pictures of some of her hats. 

Notice how the second one is folded so you can see how easy they are to fold and tuck for a coat pocket, jacket sleeve, or even a handbag!

She can make any colors you want and for men she can even make them one color or two colors! 

If you are interested in a hat from Patty contact her at:


A lot of people struggle when looking for plus sized dresses.  This should not be an issue.  Everyone deserves to dress up for a nice event or just because, and it is definitely not impossible to find something appropriate for your body type, no matter what size you are.  This is where IGIGI comes into play.  IGIGI carries plus size dresses for women. 

They have a great selection of beautiful prints and designs for plus size body types.  These dresses are very flowy and very appropriate and will not look tacky! It’s very easy to shop on their website with the different categories of dresses, such as evening and work dresses.  The models make the dresses look realistically beautiful with their curves and beautiful bodies.  You can even find wedding dresses or bridesmaid dresses which is great because you could spend a lot of money getting a seamstress to work on a dress at a regular shop that is sized way to small for your body.   Oh, and the prices, they are very fair and very affordable.  You will get a better deal then you would at most dress shops, and you can do it all from the convenience of your own home and computer screen! Review

Thursday, March 29, 2012 is such a cute shop.  It’s full of animal head gear that is affordable and looks great!  It make a great fashion statement which is why I think it’s such a great idea.  I have seen some tacky designs this winter, so I was really pleased with the selection on’s website!

I received a Wolf Hat and it is just too cute.  It’s perfect for me and my wild and feisty personality.  It goes with a ton of outfits and is the perfect accessory to my wardrobe.  It’s very comfortable to wear and didn’t make my head itchy or mess up my hair.  It actually kept my arms warm as the sun went down, which was nice. 

It’s funny because the longer I wore this, the more outgoing I became while being photographed.  It actually helped my personality come out more.  This is definitely something I would wear at a camp fire, or  backyard barbecue!!!  I love my Wolf Hat!!!

My advice: Add some spice in your wardrobe with a wild animal hat from!

Looking for Sandals this Spring?

Looking for new footwear for the Spring and Summer?  Be sure to check out Clarks shoes!  They have a great selection of sandals at an affordable price.  Their footwear is actually great for your feet and helps keep you feeling good all day, while making sure your feet are being treated the way they should.

Seriously, as much as you are on your feet, shoes should be an investment.  You should always look for high quality materials and structures that properly cushion your feet and support your arches.  And sneakers can be tacky, so instead of wearing those during errands or to work (as I am guilty of), you should get a nice pair of  sandals that will help you dress up but remain comfortable all throughout the day.   Definitely begin your shopping now, because Spring is upon us!!

Save Time by Shopping Online at StyleTopic

So this time of year I am super busy, and sure enough, 2012 is no different.  It's like I barely have time to cut coupons, run errands, or go shopping.  I am always cleaning or doing something around the house or at work.  When I do have free time, I'm almost always by a computer.  That's where StyleTopic comes into play! With StyleTopic I can find all the latest deals on the latest trends from all different retailers.  And I can do it all from one website.

This is so much more convenient for me and I can do it for any clothes I made whether it be sports gear and apparel for when I work out (which also consumes much of my time) or an outfit or dress for going out at night!  If you haven't checked StyleTopic out I think you should especially right now when there are plenty of deals out there for Spring Fashions!

Monday, March 26, 2012

ApartStyle is the best place to go if you are looking for the latest Hollywood and Celebrity Trends. They are always up to date on what everyone is wearing and you can look like your favorite stars for a fraction of the cost. The selection of apparel at ApartStyle is huge and with each product you will find a very detailed description. 

I received a pair of black jeans from ApartStyle.  I love the holes in them.  Keep it classy yet look a bit edgy.  I love how they fit and how comfy they are and I love how versatile they are.  I can wear them with so many things! They fit my body great and are still stretchy enough to be comfortable when I move around.

Costume Super Center Review

Sunday, March 25, 2012

If you are looking for a Halloween costume or even a just for fun costume, Costume Super Center is the place to go. They have a huge selection of costumes for women. There are several different categories for you to choose from, whether you are into horror, comedy, or action heroes, you will definitely be able to find something to suit your needs and your taste. They come at all different prices and I love the fact that you can sort by cheaper prices because sometimes you don’t need to spend very much on a costume you will only wear once. Regardless, these costumes are very affordable and fairly priced, especially if you compare them to the ones you can purchase in stores.

I received a costume of Blair from Terminator 4 the movie. It was very easy to put on and it was so comfortable to wear. I could definitely wear this costume all night for a costume party. It is a very sexy costume but it is realistic at the same time. I personally don’t like wearing costumes where I’m in a bikini so this gave me enough coverage but still let enough skin show that I felt sexy in it. I love the cropped jacket and I love the boot tops. One less thing I need to worry about when buying accessories for this costume.

My Advice: Have fun once in a while and dress up with a costume from Costume Super Center.

With a simple press of it’s buttons I could switch to different modes. It is very easy to wear. It isn’t bulky and doesn’t get in the way. It also clips onto my pants very easily and it stays on. It didn’t slip off once. I was so grateful! I don’t think I can ever leave home without this pedometer. I love it!!

Designers Come Together for the Ebay Fashion Vault

So while I was on ebay the other day I popped over to the Fashion Vault and I saw all of these bags with the phrase "You can't fake fashion" on them. Upon closer review, I noticed each tote had a different design, based on the designer that made it. 

For instance, David Yurman specializes in jewelry, so their bag had a cool chain on it!

I think it is so awesome to see all the different designers come together and add their own little edge to each tote.  Now, for $200, it can really be worth it if you are into the designer.  There are so many different ones, such as Betsey Johnson and even Tommy Hilfiger. There were also some I haven't heard of but they had beautiful bags. 

My favorite was this one:

Carlos Falchi mixes a bit of urban design into their tote. I totally wish I could get it but I have some other things I'm saving up my money for. 

Which bag is your favorite?

My Little Man is Going to The Vets

My sweet little man goes to the vet this Friday for a check up and a consult so I can get him neutered. So let this be a reminder to everyone that it's very important to get your pet's spayed and neutered. Let breeding to the breeders and promote adoption from a shelter whenever you can.  Don't try to become a breeder.

And if you let your pet outside be sure they are kept contained in your yard, and make sure they always have a collar on with some sort of ID.

Hot Trend for Spring: Pink Denim

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

So on the way to work this morning, I passed a high school bus stop and saw a girl with a black shirt and pink jeans on.  It looked awesome!! 

The best part about wearing pink jeans is that the only other thing you need to do it is a black shirt and black pumps (or flats), or white shirt and brown (if you have light pink denim) or black shoes (if you have dark pink denim.)  Your jeans make the entire outfit pop.

It's just such an easy outfit to wear and it looks so awesome. I was really impressed with that girl's bold fashion statement, especially in high school, where people can be brutal.

Now...I just have to find pink jeans...

Pet 'n Shape Review

Sunday, March 18, 2012

It's important to always be aware of what ingredients are in your pet's food.  I know that when it comes to my dogs, they get ONLY the best and most high quality brands out there.  So treats are just as important.   At Pet 'n Shape, they realize that and they use nautral ingredients to make healthy treats. No additives or preservatives, high protein, and low in cholesterol and fat.

I received 2 packages of treats from Pet 'n Shape.  Peanut Butter and Chicken Liver.  Wow, did my chihuahuas LOVE these flavors.  I loved them myself because they didn't make a crumbly mess and they were the perfect bite size for my dogs!  My dogs loved these treats and it was also perfect for Rocky, who can sometimes be a very picky eater.  But when I toss a few treats in his bowl he will definitely start eating so this was a huge help.

My Advice: Feed your pets with healthy foods, just like you would yourself!

Stephanie Johnson Review

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Stephanie Johnson is very well known for it's high quality cosmetic bags, cosmetic cases, and toiletry bags.  It wasn't until I got to see their products in person for myself that I truly fell in love. There are so many different styles and shapes and designs to choose from but somehow, their website keeps it all very organized and easy to explore. These bags are what I would truly describe as luxurious.  They look classy, feel comfortable, and are very very practical.

 I received 3 different bags from Stephanie Johnson.  I am so obsessed with all of them!
The Lulu Tote in Turquoise is a great carry-all that fits all of my stuff.  I was able to load it up with my wallet, makeup, brush, mini straightener, magazines, water bottle, and cell phone.  It fits very comfortably over my shoulder and it was very easy to find my items inside of it.  The snap closure is great to ensure that nothing will spill out if it happens to tip on its side.  The metallic gold straps give this a fun and unique look and the two interior pockets help keep it practical.  This is such a luxurious tote!  The design of it makes me feel like I'm on vacation!

The Jenny Train Case in Turks and Caicos is so beachy and tropical.  I feel like I'm on an island vacation with this one. I have chosen to use this bag as my toiletries bag when I travel.  Perfect for travel size shampoos, conditioners, serums, and other bath products, it's roomy but lightweight.  It has a beautiful tassel zipper pull and the navy liner is so majestic looking.  It even has a detachable mirror and a separate clear pouch.  I love the handle, it makes it so easy to carry. 

The ML Traveler in Lima Purple is my absolutely favorite Stephanie Johnson bag that I am still raving about!  First of all, this is great for travel, but it's also great for everyday use.  Sometimes I do my makeup in the bathroom, sometimes in the bedroom, it just depends on how I feel.  I hate having to run back and forth to get something so it's nice to have it all in one compact bag.  But don't be fooled, though small, this bag fits A LOT of stuff, and it fits very comfortably, not all cramped like some makeup bags.  I loved the clear pouch which I used for my flat items.  I used the removable zip pouches for brushes and eyeliners. I loved how these are meshy because it makes the entire bag light weight.  There is also a removable clear pouch and it is perfect for my powders and foundations, which often get messy.  So when it gets messy, I can simply remove this pouch, rinse it out, and replace it without worrying about getting powder and liner all over the other contents in this bag.  I am so excited about this bag, I even rearranged how I stored my makeup in it not once, but twice!

My Advice: Instead of wasting money on cheap unreliable makeup cases and travel sets, invest in a really high quality brand such as Stephanie Johnson so you can have bags that last a lifetime and make you feel more luxurious while using them!

Cutting Costs For Your Wedding

Friday, March 16, 2012

Wedding Season is almost here and everyone wants to cut costs.  Well,  one way is with wedding invitations.  I found some cheap wedding invitation ideas that could really help save you money. Doing invitations online rather than in person at a store can save a lot more money and it can even go quicker. Plus, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home!  Also, you should take advantage of any off season sales. Planning ahead…way ahead…can help you take advantage of any sales as well.    

Are you crafty?  Well you can always make your own, or even order some simple ones online and then embellish them at home at your craft table.  Maybe add some glitter or color with your own supplies and some elbow grease.   Wedding invitations don’t get kept forever by all recipients, so consider that when you look at places to cut costs during wedding planning.

Just remember, your wedding is the start to your future.  And if you want to have more money in your future, you need to be smart about your wedding.  Get creative and crafty all at the same time, all while keeping your wedding invitations classy.  Cheap doesn’t mean it can’t be classy, remember that!

Trio Wedding Ring Sets

With the economy the way it is, weddings seem to be more and more expensive.  There are many ways to save without cutting the fun and tradition out of it and one of those ways is with the wedding ring sets at My Trio Rings.  A trio ring is a set of wedding rings which includes the engagement ring, women’s band, and man’s band.  This way, you get a matching set and you get it all at a great price. 

I can’t believe how many beautiful designs and options are on the My Trio Rings website.  You can find a diamond setting for your engagement ring, just like all the ones that you see advertised on TV and in the weekly flyers.  I was so amazed at all the different ones that were available.  And the wedding bands are fabulous.  Sometimes it’s nice to do something a little different than the plain ring, so I was really impressed when I saw some wedding bands with diamonds in them.

There are so many really unique designs and if you know anyone planning to get married or engaged soon, you should really pass this website on to them because it’s a really great way to save money and get more for the money that you do spend!

Go Sport ID Review & *Giveaway* Ends 3/23

Go Sport ID  is a great, fashionable way to mix motivation and safety.  I have been running for a few months now and sometimes I worry what could happen if I was alone somewhere and got attacked, or just had a health issue. How would anyone know who to contact?  I don't carry my ID on me.  I usually just have my phone, which is always locked.  Well, with Go Sport ID, you can actually have an emergency contact's name and number engraved on a band that you can wear when you work out and exercise.  You can keep it on the inside of the band so that no one can see it on an everyday basis.  The other thing that's awesome about Go Sport ID is that you can have a motivational quote or phrase or even just a word or date engraved on the bracelet.  This is perfect for when you feel like just giving up and you look down and see it. 

I received an Inspire Bracelet and some extra bands from Go Sport ID.  I had the bracelet engraved with a saying that means a lot to me, "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger." Because whenever I start to feel defeated, I tell myself that and I get the strength to keep going.  I love that there are different color bands because I can change them depending on my outfit and gear.  The bracelets are very affordable and I think it's an amazing idea.  I love the bright neon colors on the bracelets for when you are outside or at night, but I also love the regular black band, incase you want to look a bit more stylish!!

My Advice: Always remember, safety first.  Also, it's important to keep yourself motivated.  With Go Sport ID, You can actually stay motivated and safe at the same time. It's a great, stylish way to mix the two!

Two lucky winners will each receive a $25 gift card for Go Sport ID!

Have you heard of Born Shoes?  Well, now you have, and let me tell you, they have some great spring styles.  Not only do they come in great floral prints and designs, but they all different styles, even wedges and regular sandals!

When it comes to shoes, you want to shop from a brand that offers many different styles and varieties. This way, when you find a brand that you fit well, and is very comfortable, it will be easier to select other styles for your feet.  It's also important to have a variety of different shoes to chose from since your outfits will change everyday and you can't always wear them same regular old sandals!

I love wedge shoes because they are perfect for going out, and they still give you a relaxed feeling.  Sandals are great for during the day especially if you are walking around a lot because they are comfortable on your heels and the balls of your feet.  I usually invest in a few pairs of wedges each Spring.  If you take proper care of your sandals and wedges they can definitely last for a couple years and through a couple more warm seasons.  Just don't wear them in the dirt or mud and don't wear them when it rains. Now you see why it’s so easy to become a shoe addict…you pretty much HAVE to have them! So be sure to stock up now while prices are lower than usual and be prepared once the warm weather is here for good!

Then I dried and styled it like usual.  It honestly left my hair looking super healthy and smooth! I love that it's so easy to apply. And it didn't leave a sticky gunky feeling or residue! I am definitely going to use this everyday!

My Productive Weekend...

Monday, March 12, 2012

This weekend I got so much done. I did all of my groceries on Friday and I also cleaned my entire house all before 8pm. I mean literally, there is no clutter ANYWHERE.  Everything has a place, everything is perfectly in order. YAY!  Saturday I went to this doggy event with Pixie.  it was called Pawsabilities.  Since I have 4  chi's I was so torn on who to bring but since Pixie is the original and my first, I decided to bring her. She had a blast . I visited a lot of vendors and I picked up some doggy baked goods!

Pixie and Mommy Day Out

 Then at night, my girlfriend and I decided to go get some drinks.  I left my hair wavy, which is my new thing because it's so fast and easy and I barely have to use any heat on my hair.  It was a blast but I was exhausted by 11 so I came home early.

Rian and myself, out for drinks.
 I also made home made cheesecake. Super easy to make.  I love baking so this was awesome, even though I technically didn't even have to bake it, lol.



Grace, Pixie, and Rocky enjoying the warm sun!
 And it was so warm out yesterday, Oh my gosh!! I went running on Saturday, but Sunday I just lounged outside in the warm sun with the pups. I got a bit of color as well, which I was happy about!!!

It's so bright Mom!

So how was your weekend and what did you do?
