MagnaPods.com Review

I constantly struggle with keeping my cosmetics organized. I have a basket for them that I try to keep as organized as possible but it always gets messy. Magnapods was nice enough to let me do a review with them! Magnapods is a handy little thing to have.
MagnaPods help you restore organization and order to your medicine cabinet. The clear high quality plastic containers magnetically adhere to the inside of your steel-framed medicine cabinet door giving you new space to organize your make-up brushes, eye liners, lip sticks and much more. MagnaPods are movable, sturdy and are perfect to store the little things in life. Open up to a new storage possibility with MagnaPods.





Magnapods fits great on the inside of my medicine cabinet. I have put small lipglosses and eyeshadows in the containers and they fit perfectly. It's so easy and convienient to have everything together in one container all at once! It makes life so much easier!

Yum-Yum!

So tonight, for dinner I made the chicken and rice kit that I received from Delicaegourmet.com. I slowcooked it for 7 hours and it was beyond delicious. It was so easy to make, I almost felt guilty (not really!)


FantasyJewelry.com Giveaway and Review

Fantasyjewlerybox.com offers so many categories of beautiful jewlery. Whether you need a ring, necklace, earrings, bracelet, etc. They have it all! I love how each jewlery category is separated under gold, silver, stone color, etc. It's great! It took me a LONG time to pick out something because I loved everything. I finally settled on Shawna's Layered Matte & Polished Gold Beaded Necklace:


Beads of various textures and sizes are strung up on 4 rows of sleek strings to fashion together a stunning gold necklace that you'll never want to take off. Opposing looks of matte and polish make this piece a stylish conversation starter that everyone will admire. Chic and modern, what more can you ask for from our time less faux gold collection.

I thought this necklace was really pretty. It looks great for day or night wear. The quality of the necklace seems very sturdy and durable. I know that I made a great choice!

GIVEAWAY RULES:
I will be picking ONE (1) winner to win their choice of jewlery from Fantasyjewlerybox.com for $35 and under.

Something very cool was delivered today!

I've really enjoyed having a blog and connecting with other people and reviewing products. I am a big fan of the Real Housewives of NYC. I am a "fan" of Jill Zarin on facebook. Her email address was in her info section. I decided to email her and explain what my blog is all about, and how I would love to review her upcoming book for my blog. I told her that it would be great publicity for her book, herself, and the show. (I'm sure she enjoyed that part.) I titled the subject "Business Deal" so she wouldn't delete it or ignore it. Well she must have a blackberry or an iphone or something because she answered within 5 minutes. She thanked me and CC'd her publisher in the email to get something going. The publisher and I talked and she thought it would be a great idea. Well low and behold, the book came today via messenger (since the publishing company and I are both in NYC). It's very exciting and I think it's so cool how I have something that doesn't come out for 23 days!!

Looking to buy the following DVD's from you

I don't care if they are new or used...
am looking for Roseanne or Married with Children (any seasons), Weeds Season 5, Kathy Griffin My life on the d-list (any season) and Bruno

Congrats to my CSNStore.com Winner!

Thank you!


A while back I posted that I was missing some of my southern foods and they were not available in NY. An extremely generous reader Ashley, volunteered to send me a package of Sundrop and Goo Goo Clusters. I haven't had these items in over 4 1/2 years since I lived in NC. I am SO excited!! thank you ashley!!

Just got this email

This is to inform you that you have won a total sum of £950,000.00 GBP (NINE HUNDRED & FIFTY THOUSAND POUNDS)in the Pepsi Lottery of 2010. For further details about winning, kindly contact the officer in charge.
Shaw Hendrick
pepsi_eclaims@admin.in.th
Jung Stephanie
Public Announcer

Oh my! Really? I won this much money? I don't even drink Pepsi, but somehow I was entered to win the Pepsi Lottery? What does one do to be entered into this lottery, drink 500,000 calories worth of Pepsi and then send in their bottle caps?

Now I won't have to worry about money and I can go to Europe! It's funny because the email had "undisclosed recipients" in the email too, does that mean I have to split my winings with them? Thanks Stephanie, even though your email looks fake and scammy!!

Monster.com is being a monster to me

I have been applying for jobs on Monster.com and Yahoo Hot Jobs. YHJ is a little scammy, I have been getting emails for interviews for positions that I KNOW I do not qualify for. I hope I can find a job soon...I only have 2 months to find a job before school ends! Send me good vibes.

Gorjana.com Review

I love jewlery, and I always enjoy wearing new pieces. In my opinion, I find my jewlery style unique yet fun. I like dangly earrings, chunky bracelets, and big rings. I do also like elegant pieces as well. I had the amazing opportunity to review a piece of jewlery from Gorjana.com. It was EXTREMELY hard to pick just one piece. They have such beautiful pieces, it took me about 15 minutes to choose. I finally settled on the Madison Bangles. They are beautiful!


They remind me of something that I would see in a high end boutique on MADISON Avenue. They came beautifully packaged in a pouch inside the logoed box. The bracelet itself is quality sterling silver, and I love the contemporary circles too. The bracelet is great for day or evening wear and even goes great just with jeans too! I can see myself wearing this bracelet all the time. Thanks to Gorjana for a great review :).

I have hit 200 followers!

What an exciting day. I now have 202 followers!!

Carouselcakes.com Review

I have a big sweet tooth and I LOVE chocolate. I will not pass up the opportunity for sweets! When I had the opportunity to review a cake from Carouselcakes.com, I jumped at the offer! Even Oprah loves their Red Velvet Cheesecake.
I reviewed the Brownie cheesecake.
If you love our line of creamy New York cheesecakes, you will "die for" this new dessert. We bake our cheesecake on top of a moist, rich chocolate brownie, then we put mounds of brownie on top, creating a fun new dessert.


This cake was so delicious. The cake was so fresh and the brownies were so moist and delicious. The cheesecake was so creamy had a layer of chocolate and graham cracker and then brownies. It was so yummy!!!
I wish everyone tries a Carousel Cake in the future!

SweetlyYou Review

It's my favorite time again, I get to review beauty products!! This time it's from SweetlyYou.

What is SweetlyYou all about?
Create custom Bath & Body gifts for yourself or someone you know deserves it! Sweetly You has Scented Bath and Body products like Premium Lotion, Foaming Bath Butter, Sugar Scrub, Solid Perfume,and Dead Sea Bath Salts. Our unique Scents include Signature scents similar to Bath & Body Works, Victoria®s Secret and whatever else you can imagine.

Sweetly you sent me this delicious scrub. It smells great and exfoliates so well! I am a big fan of scrubs.
Essential Sugar Scrub, scented with the fragrance Beautiful combines soft cane sugar and Jojoba Beads in avocado and mineral oil and bees wax to provide extremely effective yet gentle exfoliation. Great for use on skin during the summer to show off a fresh glow and during the winter to keep your skin smooth and moisturized. Essential Sugar Scrub is the only Sweetly You bath and body product that contains mineral oil. The Essential Sugar Scrub makes a great companion with our luxurious Foaming Bath Butter or in any bath and body gift set . Buff some life into your tired skin today with Beautiful Essential Sugar Scrub




Next, I was sent bath salts.

Dead Sea Bath Salts turn an ordinary bath into a therapeutic mineral spa. Unlike most bath salts that are just table salt or refined (mineral content stripped) sea salts, Sweetly You Dead Sea Salts are 100% Natural. They have not been refined in any way, but were instead harvested from the Southern Shores of the Dead Sea in Israel where natural mineral content is at its highest. Dead Sea Salts have a unique composition of minerals not naturally found anywhere else in the world. This composition is why Dead Sea Salts have become famous for soothing sensitive or problematic skin, detoxifying the body and relaxing the mind. Also available in 4oz single use packs where you can enjoy a different fragrance with every bath. Turn your bath into a well deserved mini-spa tonight or treat a friend with a Dead Sea Salt Gift Set!

These bath salts are great! I love to take baths, and I added these to the bath and they made it very soothing and relaxing. The bath salts smell really great too!

Lastly, I was sent the delicious Creme Brulee bubble bath.
It smells like the real thing and is good enough to eat! It produced a lot of bubbles too!
Bathe your stresses away in a warm mountain of bubbles scented with the fragrance, Creme Brulee. Our Moisturizing Bubble Bath is specially formulated without SDS to provide you with a thick concentrate of bubbles that will actually leave your skin moisturized rather than feeling irritated and dry. This product is also available in a 4 oz size as well as in many of our bath & body gift baskets . Indulge yourself tonight with the Creme Brulee Moisturizing Bubble Bath!


GoSmile Review

I've tried many different teeth whitening products, but none seem to work well. I've had my teeth bleached and whitened professionally, but that is costly and isn't permanent. I do have to say that GoSmile is really great! Their line of products truly gets your teeth white and gives you that confidence to show off your pretty smile.

A little about Go Smile:
GO SMiLE's Two-Step Smile Program is the fast, easy, totally modern way to whiten your teeth and keep them white! Forget those messy, time-consuming, and uncomfortable strips and trays. The secret to a beautiful, hassle-free white smile is with our patented Ampoule Technology™ Delivery System.

Just Flip, Pop, Whiten with the Smile Whitening System. Then use our delicious, breath-freshening Touch Up® ampoules and aromatherapy-enriched AM and PM Toothpastes every day, to help keep your smile white!

Try our NEW Touch Up® Smile Perfecting Ampoules in delicious Fresh Mint, Watermelon Mint, and Green Apple flavors.

GoSmile sent me the Smile Whitening system.

Nothing makes a better impression than a sparkling, white smile. Whiten your teeth in just 7 days, with no trays, no strips, and – best of all – no sensitivity. Just apply and go, its beautifully simple! The secret is our patented Ampoule Technology™ delivery system, which is amazingly fast and easy to use.


This system is great! It's organized perfectly with AM and PM for morning and night use. The ampoules are very easy to use. You have to fip the fluid inside the ampoule over and squeeze until it "pops." You saturate the tip of the ampoule with the fluid and then in a circular motion you go over your teeth with it until it's all gone. It doesn't leave any sort of burning sensation that other whitening products have left me with in the past. It does leave a minty taste in your mouth, similiar to chewing a piece of spearmint gum. I've been using this system for a few days now and have actually noticed a slight difference in the whiteness of my teeth. I hope I achieve more results in the next few days!

I was also sent the luxury toothpaste sampler.
Beautify and care for your smile with GO SMiLE Luxury Fluoride Toothpastes. Our delicious aromatherapy blends are enriched with natural extracts that get you going in the morning, relax you at night, and brighten your smile every day. Specially formulated with hydrated silica and fluoride, these uniquely luscious toothpastes power through surface stains, fight cavities, and strengthen tooth enamel. Try all 3 flavors in this travel-friendly sampler!



I love the sampler size of these toothpastes. They come in a convienient box all together and they are cute and little. The flavors were AM (Energy), PM (Tranquility) and Lemonade Smile. All of the flavors left my teeth feeling very clean and well scrubbed. I love that these toothpastes power through surface stains, they fight cavities, and they also strengthen tooth enamel. What a win win! You can't get better than that combination. I really enjoy using these toothpastes and I know I will buy more when I run out.

HeadOrganics Review

I always love being able to review different shampoos, and I love buying them too. there are just so many different kinds and scents. I love when they make my hair smell really nice too. I had never even heard of organic shampoo before trying this company's product. I know of organic food, but to me organic shampoo was crazy!
Who is Head Organics and what are they all about?
Head Organics formulas are free of harsh detergents and polluting chemicals to keep both hair and environment pure and natural. With world-class research and development, access to global ingredients and true “green chemistry,” this 100% vegan and gluten-free hair care line offers standout performance in both personal grooming and personal responsibility for the environment. Each product is masterfully blended with naturally derived, certified organic active ingredients, botanical extracts, essential fatty acids, glycerin, vegetable oils, natural proteins and coconut.

Head Organics sent me:
-Leave in conditioning spray
-Styling Wax
-Extra hold spray mousse
-2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner
(Sorry for the crappy pic)

The leave in conditioning spray is great, it holds up all day and makes my hair feel great. I didn't use the mousse or the wax so I can't comment on those. The shampoo is awesome and smells really great. It really gets my hair clean and the buildup of hairspray and hair products is gone! I love this line of hair products and I love that they are eco friendly and organic too!

WOW Wood Floor Cleaning System Review

I usually clean my floors with a swiffer. It's what I've always used and I like seeing the pad at the end with the dirt on it, knowing that my floors are successfully clean. My whole world would soon change when I discovered WOW's Wood Floor Cleaning System.


This system is awesome. I love that the microfiber pad is reusable and machine washable. That saves me money and time!
Black Diamond Stoneworks Wood Floor Cleaning System is the complete wood floor cleaning set for all un-waxed natural wood and laminate floors. This kit comes ready to clean with the WOW Wood Floor Cleaner, a heavy duty cleaning mop and a Microfiber Cleaning Pad. For the ultimate in wood floor care, use the WOW Wood Floor Restorer with the Microfiber Restorer Pad to restore and protect your floors after cleaning.

The spray is powerful and it really makes my floors clean and there is a noticeable streak free shine afterwards! The mop was easy to put together and it breaks down easily too. Overall it's a great system!

Somersault Snacks Review

About Somersault Snacks:
At the Somersault Snack Co., we believe that playtime and simple delights should be a part of every day! A passion for healthy foods and daily activity in the sunshine are part of our mantra. When we find something we love—a great trail, a secret ingredient or an evening sunset—we love to share it. We enjoy these tips on healthy living, and we thought you'd like them too.

Mindful Munching, keep your mouth whirling and your body nourished!At the Somersault Snack Co., making simple, all-natural snacks that satisfy is what we are all about. For our first creation, Somersaults, we took toasted grains, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and a sprinkle of spices and baked these nuggets into roly-poly goodness for your whole family to enjoy. Balanced with the perfect amount of protein, fiber and nutrients, Somersaults will keep you going on the trail, in the car—even at your desk.


Somersault snacks are very interesting. The bag says "crunchy nuggets with sunflower seeds and toasted grains." They come in 3 different flavors: Chez cocoa (my favorite), salty pepper, s.s. sea salt, and santa fe salsa. The snacks are very interesting. They have a very unique taste to them.

Chez Cocoa:
Not too salty, not too sweet, but just right. The cocoa flakes in our Chez Cocoa give a perfect delight for moms and kids alike. Blended rich cocoa, toasted grains and sunflower seeds baked into the perfect sweet treat, mmm très bon!

S.S. Sea Salt
One taste of this nugget will have you cheering ahoy! When we created our original flavor, S.S. Sea Salt, we knew we were on to something. S.S. Sea Salt brings to life the toasted perfection of a sunflower seed with the subtle hint of sesame rounded out with savory salts from the sea.

Santa Fe Salsa
Saddle up and take a ride into the sunset with our newest baked delight. Toasted sunflower seeds and grains baked with chili pepper, cilantro, a touch of jalapeno and a dash of lime give this nugget the perfect savory bite. Giddy–Up!

Salty Pepper:
Arr, the spicy side of life. Cracked ground pepper blended with a savory mix of garlic and onion gives this toasted creation the perfect bite. Put the wind in your sails once and for all!
7 fantastic grams of protein!
A good source of fiber.

Somersault snacks are great for healthy snacking on the go. They leave you with that guilt free feeling, and the mindset that you are putting something whole and natural into your body. I very much recommend somersault!
