Lemongrass Spa Natural Skin Care with Allendra Bourget Review

 Skin Care Products 

I was given the opportunity to review several different items from the Lemongrass skin care line. I was amazed at how much I loved each one. My favorite though had to be the lavender facial scrub soap. I personally like to use the soap to refresh and fully clean my face after a good work out.  After fully rinsing my face off, my face felt very clean, refreshed, and relaxed.  The soap also helped clear up some red dry areas that I had on my face. I also was a huge fan of the eye cream and the lip balm.  The eye cream was not greasy or heavy feeling under my eyes like others I have used and the lip balm was just fantastic. I actually shared the lip balm with my 5 year old who was also suffering from chapped lips due to the winter.  With in a couple days of use of the lip balm, both of our lips were healed.

Peterson's Children's Boutique Review

We were given the opportunity to review a small selection of different items from Peterson's Children's Boutique.  They shipped us a bottle cap hair clip, a floral hair clip and two key chains/zipper pulls. All of the products were well made and put together nicely.  My son quickly claimed the peace sign zipper pull and attached it to his book bag.  The two different hair clips worked very well in my nieces very thing hair.  They did not flop over nor fall out of her hair.   I would highly recommend Peterson's Children's Boutique.  They are not only speedy on making the items and shipping the products to their customers, they communicate very well with their customers.

I was given the opportunity to review one of the many items that ::Uniquely Stamped Stuff::.  I decided to go with the family tree key chain for my husband since there are not many products out there for men.  Anyways, they have amazing customer service and work extremely fast.  I mentioned what I was interested in and by the end of the week my key chain arrived.  They key chain was amazing. The names of my sons were spelled correctly, the stamping on the metal disk was very neatly stamped on, and the overall key chain was just beautiful.

A Well Being Review

HCG Alternative Hormone Free Detox Drops 

After trying the Homeopathic HCG Drops and successfully losing 28 lbs in 15 days, I was given the opportunity to try the new hormone free detox drops that A Well Being had just received.  With the drops, you have to follow a relatively strict diet of 500 calories a day that is split into 2 meals.  Each meal needs to contain 3.5 oz of lean meat and a HCG diet approved vegetable. You are also allowed an orange or apple per day. Along with the food, you need to increase your intake of water.  I personally drank 5 cups of plain green tea a day long with my remaining servings of water.  The dosage of the drops were 36 drops per day, so I was on a schedule of 6 drops done 6 times a day.  Personally, I liked this option more than the other option of having the HCG shots.  Anyways, I was once again successful the second set of 15 days. I lost an additional 12 lbs during that time. Not only did I lose weight, I successfully lost 42 inches from my body. Mostly on my stomach, waist, and thighs.  

I do get asked often, do you feel exhausted, moody, or hungry while I was on this diet? Well, my answer was no. Personally, I felt more energetic, always felt satisfied and felt very happy and stress free.  I will say, that I believe my will power was one of my strongest tools. I was fully ready to start my weight loss journey and I am looking forward to continuing it.

A Well Being's Every Body's Protein Shake

A Well Being also gave me the opportunity to try their protein shakes. Now, I have tried other weight loss shakes before like Slimfast and was not a fan of that particular one.  Well, this shake surprised me.  It was delicious. The shake had an amazing vanilla flavor. I even at times added a little cinnamon for the added health benefits that cinnamon gives you to my morning shakes.  For one week, I was required to drink 2 shakes, one for breakfast and one for lunch. Than I would have a HCG accepted dinner. I found the shakes to be very refreshing and they were simple to make. You just add two scoops to 8 oz of cold water and than mix well. The shakes were only 120 calories, which was great since I still stayed within my 500 calorie maximum for each day.  I found myself feeling pleasantly full after each shake. I also felt and added energy within an hour or two after drinking each shake, so I added some extra sessions of exercise to my daily activities.

Here is some helpful information about the HCG Hormone Free Drops 
When taken under the tongue it triggers your brain to release fat from your reserves into your blood stream where it becomes available for use as fuel. This makes it so you won't be hungry while you follow our low calorie diet plan. You can get immediate and consistent results all the while you aren't starving. Following the HCG diet protocol your metabolism with operate over 30%--a much more efficient level to burn, rather than store which allows you to burn about 3,000 of your fat per day and lose up up to 2 pounds per day. HCG opens only the excess fat cells allowing excess fat to be burned and then burns the excess fat cells taking the needed fat, and literally sculpts the body, losing inches as well as pounds.  is their Facebook page

Scentsy Review with Jenny Montes

Scentsy Buddy 

Working with Jenny was such a wonderful experience and she let me choose what I would be interested in reviewing for her. I went with the Scentsy Buddy, Scratch the Cat. The buddies seem like such a wonderful idea and I just know that E would love the "kitty"! I went with the lavender scent pouch, as I thought it would be a great calming scent for bedtime. Scratch was a hit as soon as I got him out of the box! He is super soft and very cuddly and E just loves to hug him and takes him to bed every night. She even wanted to wrap him at our recent babywearing meet-up. The scent is so wonderful and sweet, I love to give him a hug every now and then too. I can see him getting lots of love from now on at his new happy home!

Overall, Jenny Montes was a pleasure to work with and shipped the product extremely fast. We would highly recommend Independent Scentsy Consultant Jenny Montes.

Crafty Kelli's Baby Accessories Review


The capelet was cute, unique, warm cover-up for little ones. It was well made and very easy to get on, much easier than a coat/jacket. Which also made getting her into her car seat easier while she still stayed warm. I liked the softness of the fabric used.  The overall length was great with plenty of room for growth.

Crafty Kelli's is another amazing business. They offer a great variety of children's products for you to choose from. They are willing to go out of their way to fully satisfy their customers. They also have very speedy delivery especially since their products are custom made.

Violet's Buds Review Part 1

Violet's Buds: Bows/headband/flower

I loved the butterfly ribbon clips! Really cute, well made and sturdy. The alligator style was very easy to get in my toddler's hair which is good because you have to be quick when you do her hair. The headband was super neat and unique as it was braided, which gave it a very cute handmade look. The fabric flower that came on it was also really cool and I liked that it came as a metal, spring hair clip, so it could be used alone or as the set, and I could position it after the headband to make sure it was in just the right place, without having to twist the headband around. The silk flower clip was just wonderful! I was glad that it was orange, because it will surely get lots of use once college football season starts here! With the alligator clip style I was able to use it both as a hair accessory and as an accent on her cute blue bubble suit. 

 Overall, the customer service was outstanding with Violet's Buds. They communicate well with their customers and they ship amazing products very fast.  I would highly recommend them to friends and family members.
