Here is a product that I was a bit afraid to use. It was something I have never heard of, but once I used it I was glad I did.

Here are a few of the benefits of this product:

  • Activate the cells which help repair damaged tissues

It is very easy to use and specially designed for skin complexion improvement, wrinkle reduction, and also pregnancy lines.  I used it on my face to help with my anti-aging routine.  The first thing I did was disinfect the micro needle with alcohol and then let it dry.  Then I cleansed my face.  The next step was to put some day cream on my face – and not rub it in but use the roller four times in four directions on the areas I wanted to see some skin improvement.  After that I put a bit more face cream on and I was done.  This is a very simple operation and non-invasive. With daily use you should see an improvement in a short amount of time.

I love using placemats on the dinner table. I have a number of different ones and like to mix up the pattern on them.  I found a great place to buy all kinds of linens for the table.  Hen House Linens.  Look how bright and cherry these placemats are.

Hen House Linens – Hen House Linens Gracious Persimmon 100% Cotton Placemats

Hen House Linens - Hen House Linens Gracious Persimmon 100% Cotton Table Runner, 14 x 70 Inch

When I set the table and use cloth napkins and placemats it makes any meal feel more fancy. You don’t have to save them for when you have guest, you should use them every day.  What is really nice is that you can spill on these and you can just throw them in the wash.  They are made of soft and inviting 100% cotton using color-fast dyes that allow you the ease of machine-washing and drying. To extend the life of your linens, we recommend washing in cold water and drying on low heat. The fabric will soften with age but retain its shape for many years of gracious living.

I think I must get my love of cloth napkins and placemats from my Grandma Keller.  I don’t remember this but I hear stories  about how she always had cloth napkins in her purse – she hated to use paper napkins when she went out to eat.

You can find napkins, placemats, table cloths, aprons, potholders and lots of other great linen products for you kitchen and bathroom at Hen House Linens.  They have a great line of fun and bright line of products. You may be able to find them locally at Zupans.  Hen House Linens – Hen House Linens Gracious Persimmon 100% Cotton Table Runner, 14 x 70 Inch – $25.00, Free shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

I really like to do a Body Cleanse right before I start a diet or if I feel in a slump. I recently used The Amazing Miracle Cleanse.  I found that after using The Amazing Miracle Cleanse I felt a lot better. I had a bit more energy and my stomach felt better. It is funny how something like this could make your feel better but it does.

If you are suffering from constipation, chronic fatigue, acid reflux, gas, bloating, difficulty sleeping, diarrhea, low energy, flabby tummy or skin problems you should try The Amazing Miracle Cleanse.  It is easy to take – just 2 cap fulls a day and take for two weeks.  You will be amazed at how much better you feel. You will start seeing results within 12 to 24 hours in the terms of riding intestinal tract of excess waste and reduce bloating.

Included in the formula are effective natural laxatives, fiber, herbs which help soothe the intestinal lining and Acidophilus to help promote healthy bacteria levels in the intestinal tract. While this product may not be used on a daily basis beyond the 15-day cleanse period, it may be used occasionally for intestinal cleaning with the 15-day cleanse repeated 6 -8 weeks following the initial cleanse.

I thought that The Amazing Miracle Cleanse was easy to use and I feel better after using it. If you would like to try The Amazing Miracle Cleanse you can purchase it HERE on Amazon.com.

Sometimes you just really need a vacation. So I took some time out and went all the way to a tiny country in Europe to recharge my batteries. Brussels is the capital of Belgium, a little country famous for chocolate and beer. They also claim that they invented French fries, so maybe we should call them Belgian fries!

I spent just three days in Brussels, so I was always on the move. Once I had checked into my temporary home in Citybase Apartments, I was off to enjoy the city. First I visited the Grand-Place, which is a medieval square in the center of Brussels. Many of the buildings there are from as far back as the 17th century (1600s). On top of the impressive and majestic buildings, while I was there the square had a huge “Flower Carpet.” This was a stretch of flowers all the way across the square and was amazing to see.

After wandering around the Grand-Place a little, I decided to check out Belgium’s fascination with beer. A popular pub called À La Mort Subite (which means “in sudden death”) was just around the corner. I sampled some real Belgian beer in this quaint café. After I’d refreshed myself, I went back to the main square to explore the buildings and sample some Belgian food.

The next day I went in search of Belgium’s most famous product: its chocolate. At Wittamer café you can get a free sample of Belgian chocolate. So of course I had to try! The café is on a street called Grand Sablon, where there are lots of other chocolate boutiques. I made sure to buy some to take home for friends and family – and me, of course! After returning to Wittamer for brunch, I thought it was time to get cultured. So I went to the Horta Museum, which is in the house of Victor Horta, who was one of the founding fathers of Art Nouveau.

After a quick snack to restore my energy (Belgian waffles!) I decided on my activity for the afternoon. Since I couldn’t see the rest of Europe all at once, I went to Mini-Europe instead. This miniature version of some of Europe’s most famous sights had Big Ben, gondolas in Venice and Greece’s Acropolis. Brussels is the capital of Europe, so it was the perfect place to see Europe in 350 miniatures.

My last day in Brussels came too quickly, but I decided to go to Mont des Arts, where you can find the National Library. As a book lover this was the perfect place for me. There are over a million books and more than 30,000 manuscripts. If only I could own a library that big. I also saw the beautiful gardens there. Next I saw some more modern art at the Belgian Center of Comic Book Art. You can see great prints of the Smurfs! To finish off my last day in Brussels I just had to go shopping for souvenirs. Les Galleries Saint Hubert is a long gallery of shops built in the 1800s.
I spent hours finding gifts for all my friends and family. Plus I had to get something to remind myself of my great trip.

secret blissThe Secret Bliss of Calliope Ipswich by Marcia Lynn McClure

“Oh! Do link arms with me, Calliope,” Blanche whispered, her brown eyes widening with apprehension. She took Calliope’s arm, tightly linking it with her own. “The old Mulholland house still gives me the willies every time I walk past it. I hate to think on what might have gone on inside. It’s truly terrifyin’!”
“Oh, don’t be silly, Blanche,” Calliope said, feigning calm. “Poor Prudence’s lunacy…it’s sad. And besides, her fiendish acts were not committed inside the house. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s just…it’s just a sad, empty building.” Calliope Ipswich felt the hypocrite, however, as an uncomfortable shiver of residual dread and unease shuttered down her spine,

More than six months had passed since the All Hollow’s Eve when the dangerous state of Prudence Mulholland’s fracturing mind had been revealed to the townsfolk of Meadowlark Lake. And now, each time Calliope thought of poor Prudence and her family, not only did her heart ache for their family’s unhappy lot but a chill of lingering horror rippled through her being.
In truth, at times Calliope wondered if it had all been simply a bad dream—a nightmare. But it hadn’t. It really had happened—all of it.

Front Cover

One dirty Bowl: Faster Desserts – Faster Cleanup

by Christina Dymock

Publisher: Cedar Fort, Inc.; Spi edition (June 10, 2014)

  • ISBN-10: 1462114016
  • ISBN-13: 978-1462114016

About the Book:

Quick desserts and even quicker clean up mean more time with your family and friends, and less time in the kitchen. With One Dirty Bowl, whip up show-stopping desserts like Hazelnut Puffs, Peanut Butter Truffle Bars, and White Chocolate and Strawberry Cupcakes, all while dirtying just one bowl. Grab your bowl and get ready to bake!

About the Author:

Christina Dymock graduated from the University of Utah with a bachelor’s degree in public relations. She has been published in Woman’s World magazine and in several Chicken Soup for the Soul books. She is also the author of 101 Things to Do with Popcorn, Young Chefs: Cooking Skills & Recipes for Kids, and The Hungry Family Slow Cooker Cookbook. She resides in central Utah with her husband and four children.

My Review:

I love to bake so this book was something I couldn’t wait to use.  One of my first recipes I made were the Seriously Chunky Brownies. They were so good and I can’t tell you how I like using only one bowl.  I melted the chocolate and butter in a bowl then added the rest of the ingredients, stirred, baked and then ate.  So much nicer than using a couple different bowls and having all the dishes to wash afterwards.  I can’t wait to try a few more of the recipes like Sandwich Cookie bars, Snap-and-Crackle Cookies and many more.

This One dirty Bowl would be a great shower gift, house warming present or just for your self.  You can purchase it below on the link.
