What you don't have time to brush and floss your dogs teeth!!??!!

I was asked by Bzz Agent to try complementary a bag of Eukanuba DentalDefence.  I have three dogs and my oldest and smallest a pug had to  have teeth pulled a few years back because of rotten teeth.  Now many would say how could you let that happen, but in smaller breeds it is a lot harder to put things in there mouth to clean teeth than a lab, (which I also have).  So any product that helps me do what I cannot gets my attention immediately.

I was worried about the food transition, but i did it in one day and there were no problems with three dogs.  I will say the food must be true to the statement of high quality ingredients, because there waste was minimal.  Foods with a lot of filler will cause gassy and messy waste.

I loved that the option for the mini kibble was there, again my pug could eat it with ease, and the other large dogs probably were thinking they were getting more food. 

I could not do the black light on my pug as there is no way to hold her mouth open, (no nose or snout to hold).  But my bulldog I saw a marked improvement, my youngest the lab I saw some but she is so young she doesn't have a lot plaque plus she chews everything in site. 

Would it be great for me to brush my dogs teeth daily, or even weekly, yes, but life happens and in my house the dogs teeth brushing unfortunately gets trumped.  So again to know I am feeding my dog healthy food and it is good for their teeth and also helps rid of past plaque it is a winner for me.

So let me break it down for you.

1. high quiality food
2. keeps their teeth clean
3. Helps to eliminate already there tartar
4. Easy food transition
5. Able to buy small or regular kibble depending on your dogs size
6. alot less gass
7. less dog waste

If you own one or like me a brood (3) dogs, and do love and want the best for them but don't always have the time, try this product.  If you can get a black light and look at your dogs mouth before and a month after you will see a difference.

A piece of knowlege with my coffee

<img src="" alt=""/>

OK, well usually with coffee it comes with a piece of cake or pie, in my case it comes with a piece of knowledge.  Fair Trade, we see the label on food products, some clothing, crafts etc.  Well Fair Trade is exactly that.  In the mountains of Columbia the small coffee farmers have little help in staying in business against the large farmers.  Children are forced to quit school and ofter work for free just to sustain the family farm.  Women were treated very badly and had no way to get help.  Education was a luxury the children of the smaller farms could afford.

Well Fair Trade stops that, it is a group of small farmers who group together to make a larger farm so they can be competitive in the beans pricing and in turn pay a fair wage.  The farmers must follow the rules to stay in the Fair Trade group.  Such things as education, women's health care and fair wages are given and the farmer is accountable to following the rules.

I took the time to look up the Fair Trade for keurig coffee.  I would suggest everyone do so, and also if you see another product advertised with the Fair Trade label fit would be worth reading about it.

I will not buy a product that isn't Fair Trade when there is a Fair Trade option to buy.

In this season of giving thanks and gifts, close you eyes and imagine the life of the people you help just buy choosing Fair Trade.

*** Disclaimer, I was given free samples of the Fair Trade Coffee for review purposes.

Benjamin Moore's Aura

Well I was lucky enough to be asked by Bzz Agent to try Benjamin Moore's Aura Paint Line for free, for review purposes. 

<img src="" alt=""/>

Now I have to get this out there, this is an expensive can of paint when you first look at it in the store, but the increase in price is justified and may even end up costing you less in dollars, certainly in man hours when your project is all said and done.  This paint is a much thicker paint than the traditional, but it covers nearly over any surface or color in one coat.  This means you don't need to prime, or mess with second or third coats.
Also it is more environmentally friendly so the odor of fresh paint is missing.  This is a nice touch if you are painting in a bed room or trying to finish a last minute project and expecting company and don't want your house smelling like the paint isle at home depot.f

There are some tips I learned and I will share my knowledge with you... (applause)

1.  Always when not using your paint brush, cover it with a damp paper towel.  When I say this paint is thick it also drys quickly.  One phone call from your bestie or a grilled cheese for the kiddies later and your brush will be stiff (no giggling).

2. When you start to paint or are overlapping use a feather motion, You really should wait for the coat that is already on the wall to dry up before you paint near it, the paint will pull a bit as it is drying quickly.

3. If you can finish a wall without stopping, but it isn't necessary as long as you cover your brush and feather the latter coat.

4.  When you start to paint do your cutting first, (this is around doors, windows and ceilings and baseboards.  Once you have cut then apply you coat, remember above mentioned points.

5.  Since this paint drys quickly you can take of tape, very carefully and move back in, but take care not to let anything go right up the wall until the paints has cured a bit.

6.  Speaking of tape, don't be a cheapskate now, spring for the good not too tacky painters tape, do not go to the dollar store and get some tape thinking it won't matter.  It will.

7.  No odor so it's nice to paint in the winter and not have to open windows for ventilation.

Ok my good friends, I have passed along my painting knowledge to you., Go forth and decorate.

The Glade Expressions Collection, is a wonderful way to give your home a subtle welcoming fragrance that does not smell like air fresheners.  The attention to detail with the design is much appreciated.  The oil diffuser can pass for a mini sculpture like item on any buffet or table.  There are two colors, the Pineapple and Mangosteen the diffuser has a wooden look to it, the Cotton has a white design.  But since the refills go inside the actual diffuser and come out just as easily, you certainly could change the diffuser with the refill scent.

It may sound completely trivial to talk about air fresheners, but smell is so important to our mood and stress level.  Aromatherapy is a very popular wellness tool, and it is also taught in conjunction with stress, smoking cessation, and mindfulness/ mediation.  When you walk into a room that has a touch of a scent, that doesn't over power you be you can feel it envelope you if you just close you eyes and imagine it.  That is a great stress reducing excersize.  Now imagine walking into that same room and it had a stale, pet odor, or just dirty smell to it, if you close your eyes and try to imagine anything, it wouldn't be pleasant or stress reducing. 

The fragrance mist is just as well appointed as the oil diffuser.  It is a funky shaped white object, and you buy refill that you screw into the white holder.  When you spray this it is the finest of mists, and so discreet, you could have zero worries if you were in a bathroom that was near people. 

I challenge everyone to take something that smells pleasant to you and just inhale it thru your nose and exhale thru your mouth.   When you breath put your hand on your tummy to make sure it's moving up and down, meaning your breathing with your diaphragm.  Let the scent just envelope you.  Do this for a few minutes and don't tell me you don't fell relaxed.  Now once you do that go you your store check out the Glade Expressions Collection pick a fragrance and the dispenser and enjoy!

Disclaimer, I was given some product for free to try and review.

We drink Fair Trade Coffee but do we know what it means?

<img src="" alt=""/>

Ok, anyone who drinks coffee that isn't in coolatta form has probably had or seen the Fair Trade Label on Coffee.  I was asked to participate in this campaign for BZZ Agent and never really looked at the impact of wheather I choose Fair Trade Coffee or not.

In very basic terms, when you buy fair trade coffee you know that the coffee you bought, the farmers who grew it paid a fair price for the coffee and their labor, given technical help to help in growing and trasnitioning to Oraganic.  Farmers who sell their coffee under the Fair Trade Lable must grow their coffee in a sustainable atmosphere, they work under a stritk set of international laws that promote re forestration, enviromental friednly ways to grow their coffee, this is because they know that they are going to be paid a fair price.  Otherwise farmers who are being taking advantage of for cheap labor and pricing, may resort to more economical ways to grow and harvest their coffee beans, that are usually not enviromentally friendly.

Women in rural areas are still very much dismissed and treated badly, not having any basic benefits, but the women working on a Fair Trade plantation are given access to free health care,  job rights and protection from discrimination.  This is a receipe that leads to empowerment, and then they provide strong role models for young girls and this hopefully goes on generation to  generation.

Revenues are set aside to build schools and help with education.  When the family is earning a fair wage then the child can stay in school and learn instead of having to work the felids for little wages just to help the family survive, therefore enrollment stays strong.

Farmers can sustain market price fluctuations because they are all joined together as one big supplier.

I am much more enlightened about Fair Trade than I have ever imagined.  Next time I am given the choice of drinking or buying Fair Trade Coffee vrs the other, I will be buying Fair Trade.

 Sephora junkie who HAD a room that smelled like a gym locker

<img src="" alt=""/>

I was at my daughter's Field Hockey game yesterday and we started talking about how many uniforms they have and the amount of laundry we have to do, or else the girls hampers begin to smell rank.  This team is a Division one undefeated team so they have a game or a practice 5-6 a week, each with a different type of uniform.
I was confessing that I didn't like doing laundry every day, but if I didn't her room would stink.  But one day I was sitting in the living room and it smelled so nice, I was next to an oil diffuser, the pineapple and mangosteen.  I moved it to her bedroom, and it blended in with the wood of her bed so it didn't look like I'M AN AIR FRESHENER SO SOMEBODY MUST SMELL. 
I also told them that I got these from Bzz Agent but I had coupons left for the oil diffuser and told them to go onto my facebook to print out any other coupon.  I think most of them were going to buy it, as we were all quite disgusted with the gym  locker smell coming from our daughter's room.

Country Life Maxi Hair supplement

I must disclaim that I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster

• Nourishment for hair, nails and skin** 
• 5,000 mcg of biotin 
• Gluten-Free
This supplement since I have been taking it I notice my skin a bit clearer and maybe a bit softer, my nails have definitely gotten stronger.  Not sure about the hair yet but I only have been taking them for a week or so.
It Contains vitamins A, E, and C  - These are valuable vitamins in age defying skin creams.It's also Gluten Free.  This is a great way for those of us who don't have the time or money to purchase every skin care item and hair product that comes on the market.  This one is worth a try in my humble opinions.

LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer™"

I must disclaim that I received this product complimentary through Influenster.  Thank you LypSyl for participating, this is a great lip balm.  Let me explain what sets this apart from other lip balms.

1. The Shape and Size- You pick up this lip balm and its substantial in feel, and the surface of the lip gloss is oval shaped and nice and large, but too large that you will be balming your face. 

2. The Bee- I think no review of this lip balm can not go without mention of the bee.  It's a plastic yellow bee that is one a track and you push up the bee to give you more balm (instead of twisting the bottom).  This is a very clever way to remind people that this is made with pure Swedish Beeswax.

3. The Tingle- When you apply LypSyl you immediately get a little tingle going on your lips, and a hint of a minty flavor.  This tingle lasts and feels quite refreshing.

4. The ingredients- Swedish Bees wax, coconut oil, organic Shea butter and vitamins A and E.

What I liked about this most, (not counting the bee), was I didn't have to apply a ton of it on my lips to get the feeling of relief and moisture.  My LypSyl lasted about an hour, give or take.  Which coming from someone who apply s lip balm continuously is great.

I happen to be on medication that drys my mouth so my lips get yucky, so I'm thrilled.

Check it out for your self at


I must disclaim that I received EBOOST complimentary through Influencer.  Having said that WOW, I had energy all day esp the near 2:30 time when I could just fall into a bed and take a nap, but unfortunately that is prime time in a mommy's life.

Pick up from School
Start thinking about Dinner
Driving to Practice/Rehearsal
Making afternoon snacks
Helping with homework
Cleaning up

Now please don't read the above and say, well June Cleaver don't you have a busy little life.  Well think about it, if your at home and have kids that is the reality.   The list could very well go like this

Finish status reports
Answer emails
Get back to 5 people who called me
Meet with staff regarding status of ABC project
Write Tom's review.

All of these things when tackled with no energy can just wipe us out, or worse we end up making mistakes or be sloppy about our work.

I tried EBOOST, it is a packet of powder you add water too and it bubbles up and you stir and drink it.  I had the orange flavor and when I first added the water it looked and smelled like an orange creamsicle.  I drank it up and it was yummy I love citrus.  I was impressed that it used stevia as a sweeter, instead of something not natural.  It has only 5 calories.  It's full of vitamins in the right amount and combination to achieve lasting energy.  It also is supposed to be good for immunity, but having only started using it I can't speak personally to that yet.

I think I loved the energy with out the crash the most.  I used to turn to coffee for a pick me up but I always would crash after wards, and let's not even discuss a sugar crash.

If your interested in reading more about EBOOST check out their website.

CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizer Wipes

**"CleanWell believes in eliminating germs safely. That's why they developed their patented formulation of natural thyme oil that kills germs yet contains no harsh chemicals. CleanWell truly is a better way to clean."

This is what makes this product very interesting.  Without the use of alcohol and the use of the thyme oil, you can use these on your hand and they will not dry out, also nice for the face.  This is a game changer for me.
I was coming home from a book club last night and I had my packet of CleanWell in my purse.  I left the house and wiped my hands, then being tired and dreading the removal of makeup and night face washing seemed impossible.  So I flipped over the wipe and wiped my face.  Instantly I felt a freshness and the scent is so pleasent, but I had removed a nice  amount of makeup, so I didn't feel guilty just going to bed.  Please don't replace your normal face washing routine with this, I am just saying this is a much better alternative than going to bed without washing your face.

So there you have it, a eco friendly portable hand wipe,  that can also help out with face.

The influenenster Naturals Vox Box 2012

Well a couple of weeks ago my mailbox had a fairly large sized white box with MY name on it!!!!, (I still feel like a 13 year old who got mail when I get a package).  This was from Influensters, it was my Naturals Vox Box.   Now Influensters is a company that have a group of web involved women and men and based on your demographic profile they will send you a box with items for you to try.  Now you may write reviews or blog or vlog.  They also have fun badge challenges along the way to boost your score.

So this box I received because I indicated I was "green" and interested in sustainable products that are good for our environment.

The first item out of the box was The Original Dish Drying Mat, I have seen these at Bed and Bath and wanted one so badly.  They combine a thin layer of foam between two layers of high quality, super absorbent microfiber.  Thus saving energy by drying dishes by air instead of running the dishwasher three times a day.

The next item is LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisutizer.  This is made with pure Swedish Beeswax, organic Shea butter, and vitamins A and E.  This give a very nice high quality protection on your lips.  You can tell when you wear bad lip balm and good lip balm,  This is very nice.

The next item is EBOOST, I got one (frowning face) packet of this.  It says it will boost your mood, focus, and immunity with natural ingredients with no crash.  (I better order a pallet of this)

CleanWell Individual Hand Sanitizer Wipes-
These are individually packages so they are portable for pocketbooks, lunch boxes, sports bags, beach bags etc.  They are alcohol free and "easy on the earth"


This is 24 hour odor protection, a deodorant.  It is so nice smelling, a nice floral/tropical kind of vibe.  But it's good for the body


I love this sweetener.  it's zero calories, has the same texture as sugar and is made from monk fruit.  I love this.

Country Life maxi-hair maximized.\
This is a dietary supplement with a focus on B- vitamins, biotin and MSM.  It's to bring beauty from the inside out.

I will be reviewing each of these more in depth along the way but this is just a little information about the naturals vox box.

Mommy why does our house smell dirty?

<img src="" alt=""/>

Nice title huh?  Well that is exactly how my dear daughter phrased her question to me.  She was away for the weekend with her Uncle and Aunt who have no kids and a perfect house, and apparently a specially scented house.  She came home and made it to the kitchen and said "Mommy why does our house smell dirty?"  I will tell you, although that question came from my daughter who I feel I have ultimate control over IE her iPhone, when anyone even your own off spring say that to you, you feel like you have failed on many levels.

I can take why is the kitchen messy, or the living room needs tidying up, but a house that smells, ugh.

So this happened at the beginning of the summer so i began a quest to fumigate my house.  I started with the powder you sprinkle on your carpet and vacuum up.  Well aside from adding another chore, the vacuuming part, and you better vacuum all of it up, it lasted about 12 hours.

Next I tried the glutenous air freshener that comes in the dome you are supposed to open just a little and each week open it a bit more, OK let's face it, we all open that bad boy all the way up right away.  We are the same people that pull that damn wrapper completely off the car air freshener trees.  Thus worked for about two feet, once I was three feet away from it I couldn't smell it.

Then a few weeks back I received the offer from Bzz Agent to test the Glade Oil Diffuser and the Glade Fragrance Starter kit.  Now I had seen these all over, but confess I had such bad luck with other products I immediately dismissed them.

So I head to Target with my coupon book in hand and stock up on the Lavender and Pineapple Oil Diffusers and the same for the Francesca Mist Starter kits.

The oil diffuser snaps into place in seconds and you just replace the oil card once a month.  Now since this is fragrance oil it seems to linger longer in the air.  My daughter's room had the pineapple in it and smells like a tropical drink all the time.  Mind you her hamper in filled with smelly field hockey clothes at all times.

I chose lavender for the living areas and I love how the oil Diffusers are stylish and blend nicely with your decor.

The fragrance mist is placed in all the bathrooms (of course), and near my dog's crate.  The ingenious thing about the Fragrance Mist is how delicate it sprays and how quiet it is.  There is nothing more embarrassing than being in a bathroom off of a room full of people and you need to freshen the air but the air freshener is as loud as a fire extinguisher.  Also the beauty of the fragrance  spray is how elegant the design is, but you can also buy refills of any fragrance once it empties.

I am giving both of these a thumbs up, and by the way I am happy to report my house no longer smells dirty.

COVERGIRL & Olay reveiw

<img src="" alt=""/>

Well I am officially on face cream, moisturizer, serum, day cream, night cream, primer, pre primer, someone to come into my room in the middle of the night and sprinkle fairy dust on my fact, etc.....

I think you get the idea.  The average consumer is overwhelmed by beauty advisers columns in magazines, the cosmedicas counter lady, the commercials.  It's no wonder that the beauty industry is doing so well in a sluggish economy.  I actually saw a machine that will gently apply your serums to your face, as if dabbing your face with your finger is too complicated you need to spend $200.00.

You may take from the beginning tone of this article that I am anti beauty products,  HELL NO.  I am a beauty junkie, I love samples, trial sizes, new product launches, all of it.  The problem is I have only but one face to apply it and the products just pile up.  Well I am a BZZ Agent and was given a chance to try for free the COVERGIRL/Olay foundation and pressed powder.  To begin with it has a nice simple fresh fragrance to it, only a hint, and goes on so lightly.  This is a very important point, and not lost on those of us who have suffered through the worst heat and humidity wave this past summer.  I was very nervous applying make up on the hottest of days, afraid that I would see my precious 20 minutes of time I spent in the morning carefully applying makeup to see it drip or as I like to say "fall off my face".  The coverage is great and quite remarkable for the light texture of the product.

Now after five weeks or so of wearing this I really can't speak to if my wrinkles have disappeared.  I will say that I have noticed the dark circles under my eyes lightening up and my eye make up seems to go on easier without my eye lid getting all droopy.

Bottom Line:  Thumbs up, these are very affordable and effective contenders in the BB era of foundation, and since they are sold in drugstores, the ability to get additional savings with coupons and store sales is a selling point.

Well tomorrow is the big day (actually today is).  I head to NYC for FABB.  I am thrilled yet a bit nervous of the unexpected.  I am dressing my dressy comfort chic ala suburbia.  Translation:  cocktail party night one, since traveling by train that day, big black losey fit pants, a cheetahish pattened top with a big silver yoke, silver flip flops and silver bangles and earings.  Skipping the necklace as the yoke to my top is over whelming and really my neck needs no more.  Also a cool little pinky ring I just picked up.

The next day is FABB  - Rachel Zoe, I almost wished I had a faux fur vest to wear or a cute fedora but I just can't pull either of those two off.

I am wearing a black sleevless maxi dress, but since I hate my arms I am wearing a white sheer top over the dress with pleated sleeves.  This is being paried with gold cork flip flops, a large necklace, earrings and a knuckle size ring.

Nails just painted a coralish color, didn't have time for the profesh mani/pedi.

Got a load of magazines to go thru, and bringing kindle, camera and iphone. 

I am old school and will be taking notes.

Can't wait to let you know all about the expereince.  Looking forward to reporting on the fashion, the swag and the fashion.

Peace to the peeps.

Going to FABB in NYC Sept 5, put on by Lucky Magazine.

This is a two day event, but i can only stay the one day.  I booked my ticket this week, and cannot wait.  I've been reading about past FABB's but they keep tweeting how this will be best ever.  I hope to learn a lot about improving my blog, for my satisfaction and for anyone who may actually come across sometimes.

I'll keep you posted as I  hear who is going to be speaking, I am personally very excited for the sway bag!!

Great Freebie alert


Lancome is coming out with a great freebie with 38 dollar purchase.  This one is at Macy's.
I recently had a life changing moment a few months back that has really hit the "tilt" button on my brain. There was one day I was trying to get out of the house, but I'd step out, realized I forgot my purse, then I would do the same thing, but time it was sunglasses. I did this dance for 4 times. Finally I had to just stop. I got a cup out filled it with ice, made the half and half iced tea. My favorite because it is flavored perfectly. I took a breath and sat down in my screened porch. It was raining (one of the few days of rain we've had. I remembered an exercise I was taught when overwhelmed. Just sit and enjoy the moment. That simple. So I sat on the porch, sipping my perfect iced tea and just enjoyed the flavor in my mouth and savored it, enjoyed how cool it felt going down. The feeling of the cold cup in my palms. After a few minutes of this I was calm, I was focused and remembered exactly what needed to be brought. I was calm, level headed and in the moment, not worrying about what I am cooking for dinner tonight and the fight I had with my daughter 3 hours ago. Simply being in the moment, and the Brew Over Ice Half and Half, Half tea and half lemonade did exactly that. The drink is so simple yet so perfect of a blend of flavors, you don't have to do anything to this as it brews the combination of the tea and lemonade perfectly. Never under estimate the power of the little things.

<img src="" alt=""/>

Ok Moms and other ladies with the tween/teen set in your house, I would like to take a moment and talk about the "tipping" or the trend with the girls either bleaching the bottom of the hair blonde, or a vibrant color.  I get it, hair for decades has been a means of self expression, last year the feathers were everywhere, this year it is the tipping.  When I was a teenager, it was Sun-In, Lemon Juice and a day at the beach, (not to mention the baby oil with iodine).

So when my daughter, who is turning 15 and graduated JR. High, with National Junior Honor Society, The Presidents Excellece award... you get the idea, she worked hard, as did her friends, approached me to get the Khole Kardashian look I thought at first no way are you dyeing your hair.  Then I called the hair dresser to get a price (without my daughter's knowledge), and was told for the "Ombre Bleach" it would be approx. $100, well ding ding game over.

I began to re-think my position, after all it was only the ends of her hair, that hair will probally get cut off in the fall with the back to school hair cut.  Also, I get it, she wants to have the look that she sees and likes.

Ok, now I'm on board, now we just have that pesky $100 thing to deal with.  Well I go to CVS using a coupon of course and buy an over the counter color kit.  We bring it home apply it oh so carefully, and for 25 min, I keep looking at my daughters beatuiful hair half covered in goo wondering if I have ruined her hair.  So as soon as the timer goes off I get her hair washed and she drys it comes downstairs, and nothing.  The color maybe lifted it one shade.  (Did I mention my daughter is a brunette).  Now I have a dejected daughter.  So I head down to the local Sally Hansens and ask what I can use, and was told straight up bleach.  That is the only thing that will lift a brunette to any shade of blonde.  So i get a packet of powder and a small bottle of develper, (the clerk gave all this to me), I check out and off I go.

I get home now I am mixing bleach, without any handy kit (I did save the gloves from the first kit), and I apply the bleach.  We wait, she washes and drys her hair and violoa she has blonde tips on the bottom.

But she comments on the texture of her hair, how it feels rough.  She does have fine straightesh hair.   I realize that it's the damage from the bleach.  It isn't fatal but it will need to be cared for with the right products until she decides to cut it out.
Now this is where the BzzAgent program became a life saver, as I was given the John Frieda Frizz Ease for free along with samples to hand out, in return to review the product and share my experiences with my friends etc.
So I try the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution on her hair and suddenly her hair becomes soft and managable.  The hair just drank in the product and said thank you.  It was actually remarkable to see how well it worked in just one application.

Now my duahgter has a look she loves, had to take one extra step with her hair and apply the Frizz-Ease, but she has a fun summer look and didn't have to sacrice and beautiful head of soft hair to have it.

Fabulous and Forty?  I must have missed that memo. So I love to search for ways to make me feel good about myself, find things for my family to enjoy, discover a hidden talent or two, hopefully meet some new folks.  Our household like the County is in a fiscal crisis.  But we don't have the ability to get stimulus money.  I am unable to work so I spend a lot of my time looking for deals, coupons, products in the mail to try, but to help out as well.

Sometime I will post a plug sometimes I will actually unload on the kinda of day I am having.

- regards,
