Who doesn’t like saving money?  I like to look for coupons or discounts before we go out to dinner or if we are going on a trip.  That is why I really like Groupon Coupons.  Rex and I are going to Vegas this week and I looked for coupons with a discount off of some attractions we wanted to go to.  Groupon Coupons had all kinds of coupons including discounts on hotels, rental cars, restaurants and even tours! They offer coupons on local restaurants and attractions too.

I  wanted to purchase a few new clothes for the trip and I checked on Groupon Coupons and I found coupons for places I shop at all the time like Kohl’s and JCPenney.  I found clothes for both Rex and I at a discount.  I really like getting things at a discount.

I like how easy it is to locate the coupons I want to use on Groupon Coupons.  Just type in what you are searching for a list comes up of what you are looking for.  What’s really nice is that it is all totally FREE!  No membership needed.

There is something for everyone on Groupon Coupons you can find great deals on products for your home, for gifts, for dinning, clothing and much more!  I am always checking to see what I can find on Groupon Coupons.  Take a look at Groupon Coupons and see what you can save money on.

I love this time of the year. It is when most people start wearing sandals and showing off their feet.  It is also a time to give your feet and hands some extra care.  I am going to treat myself to Skyy Hadley’s Luxury Rejuvenating Hot Cream At-Home Hand and Foot Treatment.  Here are the steps to some soft hands and feet!


1)    Remove all nail polish with a gentle polish remover
2)    Begin by sloughing off winter’s dead and dry skin with a homemade sugar scrub (salt scrubs can be drying or irritating) made of sugar, a few drops of vegetable glycerin and a few drops of an uplifting essential oil such as peppermint or rosemary. 
3)    Gently rub hands together to scrub away dullness. Use a wash cloth to rub the scrub into your feet. Remove scrub with a warm wet cloth.
4)    Next, Skyy tells consumers to not soak fingers or feet in water. By doing this you are actually drawing the moisture OUT of your skin
5)    Instead, heat up 4 plastic baggies full of a thick, luxurious cream and add a few drops of an invigorating essential oil such as tangerine, ylang ylang, or chamomile, they all work great.  Heat until very warm but not too hot.  Hands and feet need only need about 2 minutes in bags for moisture to penetrate to the skin. 
6)    Remove hands and feet from bag and massage cream into skin, wiping off any excess
7)    Make sure there is no cream on nails before applying polish.

If you have really dry skin, Skyy recommends using a hand scrub to exfoliate skin before applying the hot cream treatment. One that Skyy really likes is Lauren B. Beauty’s Polishing Hand Scrub, which is a blend of super-fine oil beads, amino acids, and antioxidants such as Aloe Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil and Vitamin E to brighten, soothe, heal chapping and protect against environmental damage.

I can’t wait to treat my feet and hands tonight!  Let me know if you try these steps and how your feet and hands look and feel!

There is nothing worse than getting a stain on your shirt while your eating at a restaurant or at your desk while at work.  That is why I like to carry a Dreft Portable Pretreater Pen with me.  It is great at getting stains out of my shirt – it is like a mini-washer in your purse!

It is so easy to use ~ you remove excess residue from the stain, then place a napkin behind the stain while squeezing pen. Use the scrubber like an eraser to eliminate stain. It works great and smells good too.  Rex and I are traveling to Las Vegas next week and the pen is going with us.  I don’t want to have to worry about embarrassing stains on my clothes while we are having fun!

While normally you would think of Dreft products for babies – I use it for clothes too.   I really like the Dreft Laundry Stain Remover ~ it works well at removing all kinds of stains. It is specially formulated for tough stains and it is very easy to use – just spray the spot and let soak into the fabric for 3-5 minutes and then wash with detergent.

You can find out more about the products Dreft carries HERE.  You can also find Dreft products nationwide.

I have always read about skin care products out of Asia and how good they worked and how good they were for your skin.  I recently was able to try a set of products from Japan called Silkriller.  They have a new luxury skin care product line.  It is spun from 100% locally produced and manufactured Japanese silk, our one-of-a-kind, silk-based skin care line will revolutionize how consumers approach skin care. IMG_0525 It uses Silk fibroin is an organic protein that naturally exists in silk fibers. The protein contains 18 amino acids that are essential to effectively nourish skin cells. Unique combination of silk fibroin and additional beauty essences, Silkriller helps to remove wrinkles and reduce color spots, while facilitating skin cell regeneration. Each drop of Silkriller is made with a high concentration of silk fibroin that not only nourishes the skin long after use, but also restores oil/water balance, helps to achieve healthy skin and maintain a youthful glow. Silkriller can even help fight acne, assist in healing scars and reduce unwanted redness.

I used 4 different products together to help make my skin look younger.  I have been using Silkriller for about 14 days – and have already seen some results.  I am hoping to see significant improvement after 29 days.

The facial foam is something that I use in the morning and at night in the shower.  It helps clean my skin along with removing impurities and dead skin.  It also helps firm and brighten my skin.  I like the way it feels when I use it and it washes away clean.

After using the facial foam I use the lotion – which my skin just soaks up.  It rejuvenates and nourishes the skin cells from the inside out.  It is great for helping make your skin look more evenly colored and to help skin cells grow and heal.

The next product is the  3D Silver Pure Rich Gel.  This gel is thick but my skin still absorbs it pretty quickly and it is a anti-aging serum which I can certainly use. I like how it feels when I rub it into my skin.  It is not sticky and does not leave a shine or greasy look on your skin.  It helps repair your skin and remove fine lines.

The finial product I used is a Moisturizing Cream which is a unique formula that is absorbed quickly into the skin. It helps help release skin fatigue and lock nutrients inside skin layer to provide constant nourishment. The cream also contains highly concentrated essences to improve skin elasticity and to refine skin radiance, keeping the skin healthy and youthful.

I really love this whole set and like how my skin is looking younger and rejuvenated with its use.  If you would like to try these great products from Silkriller you can find the set I have HERE.  There is enough product to last 3 months under normal use.

I know I haven’t posted in a couple weeks – but I wanted to update you on my progress. I am now down about 37 pounds!  Yeah!  I won’t tell you that it is easy to keep going but I love how I am feeling.  I have more energy and I am feeling better.  I have a big goal but I am taking it one day at time.  IMG_0547

One thing that really helps me is the great tasting, real food from Personal Trainer Food.  It is very easy to make – just pop in the microwave and heat.  I also have been adding some of my own touches to the meals.  This dinner here I added cheese to both the cauliflower and chicken.  I also added a few bacon bits to the chicken.  It was yummy! One night I sauteed some mushrooms and onions and then added a bit of Parmesan cheese to them, then used them to top a garlic chicken breast.  It was great.

This week I am going to be making a couple side dishes using the vegetables I have. One of them is using the cauliflower and cheese – I will take a picture and provide the recipe next week if it turns out.

Next week – Rex and I are heading out to Vegas for a few days.  I am really looking forward to the trip.  I know we will be doing lots of walking and probably eating. I am going to try to stay on my plan and stay way from the sugar and carbs.

Have a great week!  If you would like to try Personal Trainer Food they now have a two week subscription ~ great for people who don’t have room to store a whole month of food!  You can find all of the information HERE.   Have a great week!

I am always on the go and have my days packed with things to do ~ that is why I like to treat myself to something special ever once in awhile.  That is why I really like this  Coconut Milk Scrub #FBcocoscrub.  It makes me feel like a spa treatment at home!

The Coconut Milk Scrub smells so good.  It helps gently exfoliate my skin – leaving it soft and smooth.  It helps get rid of dead skin leaving only soft, nice smelling and moisturized skin.  It is easy to use.  After you shower or bath gently massage into your your damp skin – then rinse with warm water.  Your skin will glow and look healthy.

I like that the Coco Glow Coconut Milk Body Scrub uses natural ingredients. It includes to help moisturizes skin with safflower seed and grape seed oils. It also has vitamins A, B and E . All ingredients to help your skin look and feel great!  I really like to treat myself by using it.  If you would like purchase your own  Coco Glow Coconut Milk Body Scrub you can do so on the link below.

I have been looking for a few lanterns for my emergency and camping kit.  Flashlights don’t really do what I want them to – so I was excited to find this BYB Super Bright Portable COB LED Camping Lantern.  It is great for camping.  You can hang it or set it on a table, the handles fold down.  We like to hang it from a tree.

The lantern itself folds down – you just push it down and the light goes out.  Need light just pull it out.  The lantern itself is pretty bright. You need 3 AA batteries and that gives you about 12 hours of light – perfect for a weekend camping trip.  As the power gets lower the light starts to dim.

The lantern is waterproof and  hardworking. It’s lightweight so if you need to carry it in a backpack it will not weight you down.  I can see using this BYB Super Bright Portable COB LED Camping Lantern often either camping, when the power goes out or for emergency.  This would be a great gift for Father’s Day!

You can purchase your own BYB Super Bright Portable COB LED Camping Lantern on the link below from Amazon.com.

I am always looking for a new pair of ear-buds.  I have some at work, in the car, at home and Rex is the same.  I was happy to try this new pair that are  Vomach In-Ear Headphone  #vomaxtech. They have a nice ergo design and come with different sizes of ear tips so you get the size that fits best for you.  I find that they have a really good fit and are comfortable.  The ear buds don’t fall out like some I have used.

The nice thing is that there is a built-in mic that allows hand-free talking on your phone.  Which was easy to pair with the Vomach Headphones.  The sound is good.  It is clear both when talking and listening to music. I only hear the music and not the noise going on around me. They are good for when you work out as they don’t slip out of ear.

The headphones look pretty durable and should last me along time.  If you want to purchase your own pair of  Vomach In-Ear Headphone  you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com

Rex likes to listen to music and he likes his music loud.  He really likes these new wireless Sound Intone P6 Wireless Headphones #HEADPHONES.  It’s great there are no wires that get in the way – and he can be anywhere in the room to use them.  They are very comfortable and have nice padded ear pads.  The nicest thing about these headphones is that they paired really easy with his iPad.

He said the sound is good too.  The incredible speakers support with TF card mode and use 3D HD stereo sound technology powered by professional brass amplifier chip to ensure powerful yet pleasant bass. In addition, use of 40MM NdFeB strong magnet speakers enhance the bass horn shock effect and widen the sound field – thus it lets you play HIFI sound levels.

The headphones fit really well.  They have an ergonomic design with a stretchable headband which fits any size head comfortably. We get about 5-6 hours of music play before they need to be recharged with the micro USB port.  They charge in under 2 hours!  If you would like to purchase your own set of Sound Intone P6 Wireless Headphones you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com.
