Help Damaged Skin with Valentia

Disclaimer: I received this product in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.

Every day, our skin is put through the wringer with the sun, environmental toxins, makeup, touching our skin, and even age itself. There are so many products out there that claim to fight these factors, but in all actuality, we're just putting more and more chemicals on our skin. Is that really so healthy?

I have been trying to add in more natural products to my beauty routine. My favorite addition has been Vitamin C Serums. They just seem to make a much better difference without burning my skin or making it feel heavy with product. One of my aims with this is to not feel the need to wear foundation as often. I'm getting there, and Valentia Skin Care is helping me with this.

Vanentia's Even Glow Serum contains 20% Vitamin C, and a combination of all kinds of other stuff that is good for your skin. Some of these ingredients include organic rosehip seed oil, buckthorn oil, resistem (plant stem cells), botanical hyaluronic acid, and green tea extract. These ingredients have all been chosen because of their ability to enhance the effects of Vitamin C on the skin.

Valentia's Even Glow Serum has the ability to even skin tone, increase glow and radiance, boost collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and absorb quickly.

When you order Valentia Even Glow Serum through Amazon, you even receive a free ebook with recipes to even further help your skin.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed putting this Even Glow Serum on my face every morning. It was rejuvenating and almost instantly smoothed out my skin. Over time, my complexion has evened and the dark spots are disappearing. There is a glow coming into my skin. I'm confident that in very little time, I'll be able to go through most days with no foundation. Thanks Vanlentia! 

Back to School: Set Goals For YOU as Mom!

With the kids going back to school, there is usually a little more free time for mom. Even as a homeschool mom, I've found that I can work on personal goals (whether personal, educational, or professional) while my little one is having independent study. For him, this is workbook time.

While I have a few personal goals I am working on now, they are not ones I can do while doing independent work. I use this time to start some busy bag activities with Kodabug. My biggest personal goals are fitness and continuously improving my organizational habits. 

I want to share with you one item I have found to help with my organizational goals that will be beneficial to you when setting goals. 

Disclaimer: I have received a product in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own. 

The Tools4Wisdom Goals Planner has become an indispensable part of my planning process. Although I plan to add more to this planner as I go along, I started with one type of planning. I started with the events I plan with Paralina Radio and Entertainment. 

With the events, I can put in the event dates, and go ahead and mark my recording dates, along with dates that I'm just not available. This really helps with the planning. I then color code (with a box around it) for if my presence is required or not. If I know I will not be there, I use yellow. 

After this, I can plug in dates to remind guests, team members, and vendors. I also add in dates to confirm every thing. From there, I can plan when I need to get things done. 

The Goals Planner from Tools4Wisdom also includes yearly and monthly goal worksheets. 

Here are some views from the planner, so you can get a better idea of what is included. 

This Goals Planner from Tools4Wisdom is a great item for anyone who is interested in setting goals or keeping track of their progress. It would be great for some people to use as their only planner, but I use it specifically as an event planner.

Back To School: School Readiness Week

I had one of those crazy weeks last week that I just wasn't able to get anything done. Every time I thought I would get a chance to get a post done, something else came up. 

It wasn't just with posting, it was with work, planning, and even last minute prep for school. I finally gave up and decided I would get done what I could get done. I knew I could catch up. 

I thought I had missed out completely on posting about Back to School Readiness Week. Its such a great idea and the book Stewie Boomstein Starts School is an amazing resource for parents with kids starting school. Plus, its such a fun book, the kids will definitely enjoy it. 

Nothing But The Truth Publishing has their eye set on helping children starting school and their parents make it the best experience possible. Although I am homeschooling ours, they have been an amazing resource while preparing for this school year. I have also been able to pass the tips along to other parents I know. 

The release of Stewie Boomstein Starts School (Amazon) kicked off School Readiness Week, sponsored by Nothing But The Truth Publishing. School Readiness Week was August 20th through 27th. Although it is over, you can still check out the Facebook page for tips all year. 

I do apologize to all of you for not getting this up sooner. If you would like any tips on getting your littles school ready, comment below, or email me and I will help in any way I can!

Lights for Anywhere

Disclaimer: I have received a product in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.

As many of you know, in addition to homeschool mom and blogger, I am also a business owner (branding and virtual assistant) and an event planner for a paranormal team and a paranormal radio host. Part of my duties include setting up displays, taking promotional photos, and bringing attention to all of my projects.

When Rtgs sent me their 20 Micro LED String Lights, I knew I had a purpose for them. These lights are super small and battery operated. Because they use less power than most lights, the batteries will last over 48 hours. The 7 inches of lights make them perfect for many uses, and the super brightness of the lights will add to the ambiance of any room.

While they are perfect for many purposes, I keep them in my mobile office. I had been wanting to find some battery operated fairy lights, but didn't think I would find such good ones. I have been using them for displays when setting up books, to help with lighting problems at command central, and have many more plans for the future.

I have mostly been using them for book promotion displays, but have plans to take them along when I visit some clients, for Cari On Media, coming up so that I can get some great photos of products to use in social media posts. 

Check out how they make the book look without even setting up an actual display.

I'm sure I will be using them in my kids' birthdays coming up, and plan to buy several more sets of these. 

How would you use these Micro LED String Lights?

Fresh Ways to Bring a Smile to Every Day Situations with #FreshGuard

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Fresh Guard™. I received promotional items and Fresh Guard™ products in exchange for my participation. The opinions and text are mine.

For several years (15 to be exact) I have worn a night mouth guard for teeth grinding. If I do not wear it, I wake with a headache and with my jaw throbbing with pain. There are times when the grinding is so bad, it wakes me up. Apparently grinding teeth is an anxiety/ stress mechanism. Let's face it- no one is ever going to be completely free of stress and anxiety. While the mouth guard allows me to get better sleep, and not wake in pain, it isn't all roses.

To be honest, I go through entirely too many of these mouth guards because they just get yuck-o. I clean them the best I can, but after sitting in our mouths all night, cleaning needs to have a little extra oomph that toothpaste doesn't give.

Now, thanks to Fresh Guard™, my mouth is happy. Fresh Guard™ is Efferdent's latest product line. Designed to clean mouth guards, retainers, removable braces, and night guards, Fresh Guard™ gives a fresh start each night and allows you to wake with a smile on your face. (Watch the video)

I love that Fresh Guard™ comes in two unique options. There is a soak and wipe options. I was expecting the wipes to not clean as well as the soak, but they were a life saver and cleaned well beyond my expectations.

When we went away last time, we were only gone for one night (although with kids, it feels like we are packing for a month). I was trying to pack my stuff as light as possible, so I just threw in a couple of Fresh Guard™ wipes, and was on my way. That night, when it was bed time, I was almost dreading not having that clean feel I had gotten used to with the soak. I was no where near disappointed. I had a nice, clean mouth guard and had a smile on my face as I lied down.

The Fresh Guard™ wipes are alcohol free, and do not cause damage to your retainer, mouth guard, or removable braces. They remove odor causing bacteria (yay!), prevents mouth film build up, and reduces yellowing and stains of your mouth device. If you wear a retainer removable braces, these will be ideal for you- they are perfect for after meals and have a fresh mint flavor.
The Fresh Guard™ soak truly is amazing. I just love it. The soak kills 99.9% of odor causing bacteria in only 5 minutes. The removes build up of mouth film, yellowing, and stains from your device. The first use may actually require multiple uses to remove any build up of residue. Regular use will then prevent build up.

Fresh Guard, from the makers of Efferdent, is a new cleaning product for "Removable Dental Appliances." Currently, no other product exists that is designed to clean the unique materials these appliances are made of. Users have resorted to cleaning with toothbrush & toothpaste, mouthwash, denture cleaners, etc., that either damage the product, does not kill bacteria, causes discoloration to the product, and can corrode metal and damage other materials. Wearers of removable dental appliances are unsatisfied with their current cleaning methods.

Putting a smile on my face is all about freshness. I cannot handle my mouth not being clean. I always have with me a toothbrush, toothpaste, gum, mints, mouthwash, and now Fresh Guard™, for on the go cleaning. Many people think I have lost my mind, but if I carry a couple extra things around so that I am more comfortable, it is better for everyone.

Body Merry!

The Age Defense Eye Cream by Body Merry is truly amazing. It is ideal for both men and women with dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness, crows feet, fine lines and bags.

I love that this formula is all natural and organic. Eclectic blend of 70+ power packed ingredients including: Vitamins C + E + B5, Peptide Complex, Amino Acid Emulsification, Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol, Antioxidants, Aloe, Cucumber, Green Tea and many many more! It is created in the USA in a cruelty-free, FDA approved facility.

My Thoughts: 

I was especially intrigued, would it really help these annoying lines go away.

Well, the lines have all but disappeared. If I would stay out of the sun, they would probably be completely gone.

The pump is especially great because it dispenses the perfect amount for both eyes. It doesn't take much and the bottle will last quite a while.

The cream is not oily, but leaves my skin feeling refreshed. I have very dry skin around my eyes, it is also kind of sensitive to the touch. I think this is because I wear a good bit of eye makeup, and it takes a lot to remove it. This puts my eye area through the ringer (along with sun exposure). My eyes are not puffy, they are not as dry, and not anywhere as sensitive as normal. I use this every night after I take my makeup off. Immediate relief of the irritation that occurs after my makeup is removed! LOVE IT!
