I am super excited that I was selected by BzzAgent to join the BlenderBottle Campaign!

Why am I so excited? Well first of all, BzzAgent is an awesome Company to work with, but besides that, the patented BlenderBottle® is the best-selling portable mixer simply because it works. No batteries, no cord, no hassle. It's powerful enough to mix the thickest ingredients with ease. Use it in the kitchen, at the office, at the gym, when you travel, or on the go.

Here is what it looks like: 

 You'll notice that each BlenderBottle has a round BlenderBall inside. The surgical-grade stainless steel BlenderBall® is designed to remain in the cup until you've enjoyed your ingredients. It won't rust, chip, or peel.

How cool is that! I can not wait until mine arrives this week to test it. In the meantime, what have you heard about the BlenderBall?

Do you have one? Have you ever heard of the BlenderBall before? Any tips, recipes? While I'm waiting for mine, go over to BlenderBottle.com and check out how you can get your own.

You can find your own favorite recipes for use in the BlenderBottle HERE! Find them on Twitter @BlenderBottle and on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/theblenderbottle

I recently had the chance to review the Karuna Brightening Treatment Masks after winning 2 on Twitter.
I was really excited! I mean come on girls, who doesn't love facials? My 17 year old daughter and I set out to give each other facials. We opened the pack and discovered the mask was folded in quarters. It was sopping wet. Dripping.

The directions:

Step 1...Start with a freshly washed face, check.

Step 2....Adjust over mouth, nose, & eyes, check. The process of applying this mask was ridiculous! You can not tell from the picture below, but it took us about 5 minutes to apply each mask because it was so wet it dripped in our eyes, mouth, down our chest, etc. The applying process was not at all pleasant.

Step 3.....Remove backing and relax for 10-20 minutes.

Okay, this did not start out so good, but I tried to relax and enjoy this facial. IMPOSSIBLE! The mask kept sliding off because it was so wet and sudsy. My daughter and I could not take it anymore after 10 minutes.

We removed the mask and discovered another problem:

Both my daughter and me broke out from the mask. Very disappointing!

This product sadly receives: 1 out of 5 Mom Said stars :(

I hope that this review will help karuna improve their product. It is not my intention to discredit any company, but only to give my own opinion from personal experience.

I'm a BzzAgent and may have received samples or coupons to advertise in connection with certain offers but my opinions are my own.

I first learned about, about.me from BzzAgent. I love being a BzzAgent. You get to try out the latest products and features before anyone else.

But enough about me, let's talk about, about.me. The website states, "A lot of us have multiple online profiles scattered across various services, including Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, and Twitter. And one problem we face is pulling all of this information together to build a single on-line identity — be it for personal use, or to create a professional on-line profile."

I have tried it for a couple weeks now and to tell you the truth, I don't get it. I mean I just don't. I understand the concept, and I think it's a good one, but I don't believe it has the features to successfully operate as it is intended to.

I would like it if some of my fans could check it out and let me know what you think. I will then transfer your opinions as well as mine to the BzzAgent site and let them know the results of both our findings.

If you sign up for about.me today then you will receive a free* pack of MOO business cards with a link to your about.me page.
*shipping not included

Please, check out BzzAgent. They are AWESOME and I love, love, love being a BzzAgent<3

Make it a great day!


This, is Prince.

Prince is my 2 year old Shih Tzu. His name describes him best. He is spoiled rotten and a prince indeed!

This, is Bil-Jac.

Bil-Jac's claim is to be a
Super Premium Dog Food.
But, will they pass the Prince test?

Prince and I headed out to Petco to use the coupon we received from BzzAgent to purchase the dog food.

As soon as I walked into Petco I noticed there was a big bin of Bil-Jac dog treats up front so I felt good about trying this food. But what would Prince think?

Before I could even pour it, Prince was trying to eat out of the bag. This is a good sign.

I filled Prince's bowl with Bil-Jac. 
Score one for the home team Mom, and Bil-Jac!
Prince was in love! He ate the entire bowl! Yes that is his face smashed in the bowl above. He could not stop eating it. I was beginning to wonder if this dog food had MSG in it lol!

Then I read the label....When you feed Bil-Jac Super Premium Dog Food to your dog, he'll start wearing his best coat. One that's shiny, lustrous, and full. Because he's eating healthier, he'll also have softer skin, brighter eyes, increased activity, improved muscle tone and, believe it or not, a smaller & firmer stool - a sign that he's getting all the vital nutrients he needs.

That's because Bil-Jac Super Premium Dog Food is unique. Your dog is a carnivore. That's why Bil-Jac provides MORE fresh chicken protein in his diet than any other dry dog food. We start by using the highest quality and quantity of fresh chicken and fresh chicken organ meat, which we source fresh from nearby chicken processors that make the fresh chicken for your dinner table.
Vitamins Omega-3 and Omega-6
From there, we protect the fresh chicken and fresh chicken organ meat's nutrients by our exclusive nutrient protection technology. This helps protect the heat sensitive Amino Acids are protected from heat damage that can occur in most "expanded" dog foods. And we add just the right amount of vitamins and minerals to make a complete and balanced diet.
  • Because of our unique processing, no fat is added to Bil-Jac Super Premium Dog Food.
  • We use much more REAL FRESH CHICKEN and FRESH CHICKEN ORGANS than other leading brands.
  • We never use grain gluten meals or grain protein concentrates as a source of protein in our formulas.
  • Our use of carbohydrates is to provide nutritional balance and energy — not as a substitute for protein.
  • Our unique processing method may eliminate the perceived "allergic" symptoms dogs exhibit when carbohydrates in their diet are not properly processed.
So, how does Prince feel about the Bil-Jac now? 

Well, Bil-Jac, you've made a lover out of this mush-face, and a believer out of his mommy ;) (That's me!) Thank you!

You can "like" Bil-Jac on Facebook "Here"!
You can visit their website and find out more information "Here"!

 Have you heard about the Yoplait Swap? 

Small changes can make a big difference over time. That's why Yoplait Light has created the "Yoplait Light Swap" to remind people like you and me, that by making simple substitutions, like swapping one item from your diet per day for a 100 or 110 calorie Yoplait Light, you can cut unwanted calories and help yourself feel great about daily diet choices.

Sounds too easy right? Well it really is! What am I swapping you ask? I have a serious addiction to sweets, especially cakes. Chocolate cake, vanilla cake, pineapple upside-down cake, boston creme cake, you get the idea. 

My workplace is like the gluttony den of iniquity! If someone brings something in, we eat it! The vice-president of the company I work for made a comment last year when someone had left a box of sweets by the postage machine. "Who brought that in?" We were like, "We don't know". He said, "Don't you find that a little scary that you all just eat whatever sweet is left for you and you don't even know where it comes from or how old it is?" We were like, "Hmm....we'd never thought about it, but now that you mention it, that is pretty scary. " As we continued to eat the box of candy, and still do to this day.

I have all the girls in the office doing the Yoplait Swap with me. Yoplait Light yogurt offers 33 different options to choose from in fruit, pastry and dessert flavors that contain around 100 calories or less, providing endless swapping options.

So, instead of 5 women splitting an entire cake in one afternoon, we all bring our own favorites from Yoplait Light, like...banana creme pie, black forest cake, raspberry cheesecake, red velvet cake! YUM! I mean really, how can we lose? Anything but inches that is :)

To help you get as excited as I am about this, we are having a Yoplait Light Swap Prize Pack Giveaway! One lucky fan will receive the following:

  • (1) VIP coupon for a free cup of Yoplait Light yogurt
  • Insulated tote bag
  • Water bottle
  • Sunglass holder
  • Hardcover planner
  • Ballpoint pen

I have to tell you a secret. Are you listening? Here it is..Shhhh..... Mom's LOVE to feel pretty.

We do. I mean don't get me wrong, it is really great when people say what a great mom you are in your sweats and t-shirt running after your babies that have gotten into your makeup while on the telephone trying to solve your best girlfriends problems with the door bell ringing, wash on the line, and dinner cooking on the stove. And a lot of us Mom's may say to others, "I don't have time to do anything with myself anymore", or "It doesn't matter what I look like". But really, we long to feel pretty. For someone to tell us what a super Mom we are, and at the same time we feel gorgeous.

I miss those moments. Remember those days ladies when we would spend hours dolling up for a date, and walking into a room and just knowing, you are beautiful! Problem is, when you become a mom, your priorities change. You no longer put yourself first. It becomes about your little one. What they need, what makes them just the cutest little one in the whole world!

Us Mom's really love our babies no matter how big or small they are, but we're still just little girls wanting to play dress up on the inside too! Enter problem #2. 

Okay, so you plan a fabulous night out with your hubby. You squeeze back into that hot little number that you know makes him drool. Your hair's done..check. Makeup done...check. Ok, all you need to finish that look are some gorgeous earrings to drawn attention to those lobes you want him to nibble, a necklace to draw attention to the neck you want him to kiss, and a bracelet that draws his attention to hand you want him to hold. All of the sudden, you remember your precious 4 year old wanted to play dress up and you knew you didn't need them anymore, so you gave her your "I'm never going to use these again" jewelry. After all, feeling adorned is no requirement at the grocery store or laundromat! So the beads have been broken, the earrings lost, and the bracelets now adorn your daughter's favorite doll. You are now one miserable Momma. In disgust you trade your heals for slippers, stockings for sweats, and up-do for a ponytail. You cancel the reservations and tell your hubby you don't feel like going out, and order a pizza. I mean come on, you really shouldn't be spending the money going out anyway right? WRONG!

Newsflash Momma, you do matter, you do need to feel pretty, and you ARE worth it! You're a Mom, you're not dead! Okay, so money's tight. That doesn't mean you still can't buy yourself something to rock that outfit at an affordable price!

Enter Olina StarEveryone expresses style and personality through clothes and accessories while finding the best deal for their hard-earned money. Olina Star understand everyone’s desire to stay stylish and practical. They specifically created Olina Star to provide us, moms, an affordable way to give in to your personal style by offering jewelry products that are:

-Made of real gemstones and metals like silver, steel, titanium and tungsten.
-High quality. They have both classic and trendy designs to cater to individual style.
-Priced below retail.
-Super affordable and very easy on the wallet. Most jewelry range $15-$89.
-A wide array of selection. Over 3000 products to love easily.

Moms were their inspiration in creating Olina Star. I personally believe that we Moms must take some time off to feel gorgeous even while saving money. I know all too well about not having a choice in saving money. I am a Mom of 3 children ages 17, 16, and 14, and have a husband who is disabled. I am the sole breadwinner in my family. Saving money is not something fun we do, it's necessity. Call me crazy, but I still want to feel pretty!

I recently had the opportunity to review a product from Olina Star. I chose the Womens Stainless Steel Belcher Small Link Bracelet with Heart Charm --OSB984
While I don't go out a lot, I work a lot and I wanted something that would be durable (I work at a Bus Co.) and something that I could wear with any outfit to make me feel pretty. Hey just because I work around mechanics all day doesn't mean I want to look like one!
The bracelet arrived and was beautiful! The picture above certainly does not do it justice. This stunning bracelet adds verve to a casual everyday look with its delicate heart charm. You can wear this as a single strand or layer it with your favorite bracelets from your existing collection. The easy-to-wear Lobster Claw clasp completes the look with a secure and comfortable fit. The bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches in length (with 1 1/2 inch extender) and is approximately 3 millimeters in width. Heart charm measures 10 millimeters in width.

The bracelet I chose had a regular retail price of $59.96! Olina Star's price: are you ready for this? ....$17.99!!! That's a savings of $41.97! Now I can personally tell you, I have ordered in the past month from these other jewelry companies being advertised in daily deals. The most recent "daily deal" item I purchased, a garnet ring in sterling silver was so thin that it literally bent when I put it on my finger. You will NOT get that from Olina Star! Their products are crafted beautifully, made to last and enjoy for a lifetime!

So Moms, are you ready to start feeling pretty again WHILE saving money? Mom Said That's It!......check out Olina Star today and see what you've been missing. You can also check them out on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Olina-Star. Please tell them Mom Said sent you:)
