Smile with me Saturday blog hop :)





First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!

This week I'm excited to introduce you to TWO featured Smiley Hoppers!!! :)

The first is Bernadette from Mom to 2 Posh Little Divas!!



I asked Bernadette a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her.

1) When did you first start blogging? Why?
I first started blogging in November of 2010. I wanted a place where I could freely post about my girls, the things we did together, the ups & downs of motherhood and everything in between. I wanted to share it all with my friends & family and then much to my surprise "other" people started reading it and following along on our adventures!

2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
My favorite part of blog hopping is finding great new blogs and the people behind them. With so many blogs out there - it's impossible to find them all and blog hops offer a great way to connect. I have found some great blogs this way that I may not have otherwise uncovered.

3) What's your favorite hobby
I assume you mean besides blogging - this is quickly turning in to my favorite thing to do! :) I LOVE to read. I've been an avid reader since I was a kid. Unfortunately, I definitely don't read as much as I used to or would like to but it is still my go to activity whenever I get the chance.

4) Who's your role model?
My role model is my Mom - she is the most hard-working, giving, and loving person I know. She inspires me everyday to do and be my best.

The second Smiley Hopper is Miranda from Moms Bookshelf & More!!



I asked Miranda the same few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her as well.

1) When did you first start blogging? Why?
I started blogging this year in February. I had recently left a local Women's group and was in need of a hobby. My husband suggested I start blogging and give it a try. I am a very social person and write my posts as if we are having a conversation. I share my love of books and reading with suggestions and book reviews. I also share some of our favorite HOMEMADE recipes, some even have pictures.

2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
Reading blogs, getting advice, coupons and parenting tips. You can never have too much information when it comes to parenting. I also like meeting new Women and swapping stories.

3) What's your favorite hobby
Reading. I LOVE to read, with 2 boys under 4 my available reading time has shrunk but I still make it a point to read everyday!

4) Who's your role model?
Oddly enough I have a few, My Husband for being such a workaholic and having so much drive in life, He often reminds me of our 3 year old and his endless amounts of energy, where do I find some! I also look up to Rev Run and his wife. They have done such an amazing job raising their family and working hard. A great family with great morals and work ethic, but they still know how to laugh and have a good time. Then there is Michelle Duggar! I love her! She is truly amazing! We have a big family as it is, and as much as we say we are done, NO MORE kids, we both secretly would love to have more. I love her organization, her planning, her parenting style, her calmness, HER energy etc. etc. I could go on and on hahaha!

Last Round Hangover Support Review

With the opening of Hangover 2 happening tomorrow, I decided I need to introduce you to Last Round Hangover Support. Last Round cannot cure bad decisions, questionable hook-ups, senseless ramblings or excessive friend hugging…. However, Last Round will have you feeling so good the next day, it’s like last night never happened.

Last Round is all natural hangover support. You just down one before you go to bed – before a hangover sets in – and the all-natural herbal blend erases your “sins” by detoxifying and breaking down alcohol while you sleep. And when you wake up, you will actually feel good. As long as you didn’t sprain an ankle trying to play leap frog over a parking meter the night before.

The truth is, you’ll have to live with whatever you did last night. But you don’t have to live with a hangover. Just remember to take a Last Round.


I recently had the opportunity to review Last Round Hangover Support after a really crazy day/night of heavy drinking. Boy o boy was I impressed when I didn’t wake up with a hangover! The flavor sort of reminded me of a flat licorice soda. It wasn't a horrible taste, but wasn't great either! Who's worried about the taste at a time like this!

Last Round Hangover Support contains a blend of Kuduzo extract, Stevia extract, Green tea extract, Ginkgo extract and Ural Licorice extract. In order to help with your hangover, you’re to drink one of these small bottles right before bed.

While I do not endorse drinking, I do recommend that you use the bottles when your casual night gets a little out of hand.

As a reminder, this is not to be used by anyone under the age of 21! The law states you shouldn’t be drinking anyways! In addition, if you are of age and drink, do it safely. Don’t drink and drive!

Disclosure: I was provided with two bottles of Last Round Hangover Support to review. No monetary compensation was offered or accepted. The opinions above are my own.

Neoteric Advance Healing Creme Review



Neoteric Cosmetics, Inc., a subsidiary of Scott's Liquid Gold, Inc., is a 60 year old American manufacturing and distributing company whose clear and focused intent is to offer the best, most innovative & effective, high quality products at the most reasonable prices possible.
At a time when so many companies are succumbing to the "get it done cheaper" pressures, Scott's Liquid Gold stands firm in its belief that American manufacturing can be “a force to be reckoned with."  
Only extreme dedication to quality, consumer demand, uniqueness, innovation and customer service keeps a company on course for sixty years. These were the touchstone ideas behind Alpha Hydrox anti-wrinkle skin care and Neoteric Diabetic skin care - both highly respected product lines embraced by both medical professionals and consumers alike. Neoteric Cosmetics, Inc. is the wholly owned subsidiary of Scott's Liquid Gold, Inc., manufacturers of high quality wood care products as well as Touch of Scent air freshener and  Mold Control 500.

I recently had the opportunity to review Neoteric Diabetic Skin Care Advanced Healing Creme. My father is diabetic so I had him try it out on his very dry, cracked hands. Anyone who knows a diabetic knows that their skin can sometimes be ultra dry and often cracks. Any type of cut or crack on a diabetic is cause for alarm because cracks and cuts give germs a place to grow and can eventually turn into gangrene!! :( Now I know you don't want that!!

Anyway, my dad used the Advanced Healing Creme and had nothing but good things to say about it. He loved the non greasy feel and how quickly it seemed to heal his hands.
This cream is an exceptional intensive treatment for chronic dry, cracked, damaged, slow healing skin. Containing TriOxygenC®, Neoteric Diabetic Oxygenated Advanced Healing Cream is clinically proven to increase circulation and speed skin's healing by strengthening its own natural defenses.


  • The maximum treatment
  • Contains clinically proven TriOxygenC®
  • For use on entire body - fingertips, feet, hands...
  • Helps restore & protect severely dry, damaged, slow healing skin
  • Helps increase circulation
  • Helps strengthen skin's natural defenses
  • Contains Aloe & Vitamin E
  • Non-Greasy
  • 4 oz.
I definitely would recommend Advanced Healing Creme to those with diabetes or anyone who has chronic dry skin and need an excellent creme to help heal.

Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Smile With Me Saturday Blog Hop - Week 24





First off, smile with me :) You made it through another week and deserve a big smile. You've got the whole weekend ahead of you so make it a good one!

This week's featured Smiley Hopper is Shelby from The Snail Mom Chronicles!!



I asked Shelby a few questions about herself and her blog so you could get to know a little bit about her.

1) When did you first start blogging? Why?
I first started blogging in 2008 after my first son was born as a journal and a way to share our adventures with family.  I have to admit that I wasn't very good at keeping up with it since I was working full time in an office and we didn't have a fast computer connection at home.  Looking back there are maybe 5 posts from his first year.  When we moved across the country in December of 2010 I started posting 5 days a week as a way for our families on the east coast to still "see" our family.  The Snail Mom Chronicles is a new blog that is not a journal but more of a typical mom blog.  It is much more fun to write than my other blog in that it is more creative and I am getting comments-my family never left comments.

2) What's your favorite part about blog hopping?
It is exciting to see how many different blogs are out there and find more that I would enjoy checking in with on a daily basis.  I also love finding new followers that take the time to write comments on my blog.

3) What's your favorite hobby
During the summer months I love to garden-seeing the seeds grow and develop into vegetable and flowers is beautiful.  I also love sewing but I never learned how to sew (follow a pattern) so all of my projects are simple or I just wing them and make up my own pattern.  It is a goal of mine to learn how to read patterns so I can sew cool things for my kids like my mom did for me.

4) Who's your role model?
I have so many different role models for different parts of my life.  My mom as a wonderful adventurous spirit that I love and is always biking, hiking or learning about a new place.  One of my good friends Shannon has a beautiful spirit and is the type of calm mother that I strive to be.  She is also an awesome gardener and herbalist.

Prefense Foaming Hand Sanitizer Review and Giveaway



How many of you love hand sanitizer? How many of you find yourself applying hand sanitizer every time someone coughs or sneezes near you? How many of you apply hand sanitizer after washing your hands? How many of you are guilty of all of the above??!!! I know I am! 

I was recently provided a sample of Prefense Foaming Hand Sanitizer to review. Let me tell you... I'm crazy about it!



Why Prefense hand sanitizer is superior to others on the market! 

  • No alcohol! Prefense is made of all-natural organic ingredients and has absolutely NO alcohol in it! 
  • Our technology protects you for 24 hours or 10 hand washings!  This is what moms really love to hear about!
  • Prefense is non-toxic and safe for kids! It will not hurt you if swallowed!
  • Prefense is silica based which means it doesn’t dry out your hands like traditional alcohol sanitizers.  It actually smoothes and softens your hands. You can totally see this when you apply it! 
  • Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more. We fight germs that other hand sanitizers can’t. 
  • Because “one spray lasts all day” our 1.5 oz Prefense Botanicals Hand Sanitizer offers 120 applications, costing only $.08 per day, compared to $1.20 per day with alcohol hand sanitizers.

One of you will win an 8oz bottle of Prefense Foaming Hand Sanitizer!
