Mary J Blige - The London Sessions

    The much anticipated Mary J Blige album The London Sessions is in stores now! There are 12 tracks on this album, and not a single one dissapoints. This female powerhouse has always been known for her powerful vocals and heart wrenching ballads.

    "When You're Gone" is the best song on this album, in my honest opinion. I can relate in many ways. Every human feels loss and yearning, and she captured this lyrically as the song paints a picture for the listener. Have a listen and see for yourself.

    This album would be a great Christmas gift for anyone on your list. I wouldn't mind finding it stuffed in my stocking. :) #TheLondonSessions available now. What are you waiting for? Pick yours up here:

Lucrative Lip Gloss *Moon Struck Minerals- Younique*

   I was invited to try a product from the Younique make-up line, and I opted for a lip gloss, since my lashes are still trying to grow back in after chemo. The color I chose was LadyLike. It's a rosey-pink-ish color. I was pleasantly surprised that it was as smooth as it was, and not even a bit sticky.
   It went on smooth, and I was more than happy with the color pay off. It lasted through 6 cups of hot cocoa (not a fan of coffee), and still had color left on my lips. I highly recommend this gloss to lip product lovers everywhere. It's a product you'll regret not buying!

KISSInstaWave Curling System Review

   You're probably thinking 'oh look, ANOTHER curling iron'. And you'd be right, it IS a curling iron. It is also unlike anything you've ever seen or used before! This is the most fool proof iron I have ever used. Whether you're a novice or professional hair dresser, this will be the easiest curl you've ever achieved.
   -KissInstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful curls.
-It's easy enough anyone can use it, at any angle, with any hand.
-Features a curl dial with left and right curl directions.
-It auto shuts off after 90 minutes.
-There are 2 heating settings (low/high) with a maximum temperature of 420 degrees.
                                   *HOW TO*
-Hold the instawave vertically.
-Place a section of hair on the instawave rod.
-Touch the curl dial to the left or right, it automatically catches the hair and curls it.
-Hold for 5-10 seconds for curls, hold longer for tighter curls or beachy waves.
-Pull the instawave down vertically, letting hair out.
Viola! Instant curls!

Overall, I give it a 10/10. Every beauty needs one of these. They are available at Target, Ulta, Amazon.com, and Wal Mart in Canada. Check them out: http://www.KISSInstaWave.com .

Purple Prairie Soaps!

   I reached out to Purple Prairie Botanicals inquiring about their products. They were awesome enough to send me a soap of my choice to try and review. I chose the Ginger Clove soap to give it a try.
    I would like to say that these opinions are my own and are in no way swayed by the company.I recieved this sample in exchange for my honest opinion.
    Upon opening the envelop I could already smell the clove enveloping my sense of smell. IT was amazingly scented. Clove always reminds me of my grandmother, God rest her soul. This is why i chose this scent. It the packaging was cute and and not over the top.
    The Ginger Clove bar didn't last long in my house. I think maybe 5 days of having it it was nearly non-existant. My skin was squeaky clean and felt new somehow. There aren't many soap companies I trust to do what they promise to do, but this company is wonderful. Ihighly recommend these products if you want clean, unclogged, youthful skin. Your body will thank you.

These products are free of Petroleum, Parabens, Phthalates, Detergents, Sulfates, GMOs, Synthetic Fragrance and Dyes, Preservatives, Animal Ingredients, and Gluten. Yu can check them out yourselves (And I highly recommend you do!) At www.purpleprairie.com You can email for more information at info@purpleprairie.com

where have I been?!

   Greetings ladies and gents! I have been MIA for a few weeks. Things have been so crazy in my neck of the woods. The hubby and I worked and traveled with the fair for a few weeks. That was an interesting experience. I had no idea how hard those people worked.
   I had my LAST chemo treatment last month! I'm more than happy to be growing my hair back. Oh how I've missed lashes and brows. Crazy to think being diagnosed at 29 I'd have kicked breast cancer's ass! Next step is mastectomy and reconstruction, but I opted for it as a precaution.
   I start my new job Tuesday!! I am beside myself. Being a CNA is a huge part of who I am. Aside from all of that, I will be posting a few reviews this week. Hope you all have an amazing day!

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) Moisturizer Cream by InstaNatural Review

Hooray for soft moisturized skin! I absolutely adore this moisturizer. There aren't many that I can vouch for in saying they do what they promise, but the Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Cream does just that. My skin is so over the dryness of summer. This stuff is a miracle in a bottle! Not to mention it's made in the USA!

Cleopatra's Choice Pure Shea Butter Review!!

What can I say about Cleopatra's Choice Pure Shea Butter? Well, I can say that I prefer the unrefined, natural, non-chemically treated Shea butter to the store bought stuff. It makes my skin feel baby soft and brand new! The scent isn't to robust, though adding a few drops of your favorite essential oils might help it a tad. There are so many benefits to using natural Shea butter, and so many ways you can use it. You can make lip scrubs, foot scrubs, body butters, anything you can imagine and you make them to your liking. I highly recommend this product if you want super soft supple skin.

Propresser Garlic Press

I received this garlic press from tomoson.com to review and give my honest opinion about it. My opinions are my own. This product was so easy to use it was ridiculous, and even clean up is a breeze! It's stainless steel, as sleek as they come. I was highly impressed by this garlic press, and since Italian food is my favorite (especially smothered in garlic) I think this is going to be my new best friend!

Dr song Vitamin C Serum Review and Giveaway!!!

I received this serum a week ago and have been trying it out. My skin is pretty sensitive sometimes, so I expected to break out a little, to my surprise I didn't break out at all! And my skin feels pretty amazing too. :) The smell is a tad strong at first, but it lessens after applying. Other than the scent, there is nothing bad I can say about this product. I would recommend it to anyone needed a little moisturization.

 This is also a contest! One lucky ready will win their very own serum to try themselves!I would love it if you subscribed so you can be notified of future giveaways!  See instructions below.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
