coff_sm02a1We love coffee at my house.  I drink one or two cups a day and Rex much more than that.  We have one of those popular one cup coffee makers so we can make a cup when ever we want.  I love fresh roasted coffee the best!  I recently was lucky enough to get some coffee from Café Don Pablo™ .  It was freshly roasted when it arrived.IMG_0416

All of Café Don Pablo™ is slow roasted and made in small batches.  They use only the best beans that are cultivated by skilled farmers whose methods, knowledge, and passion for coffee have been handed down from generation to generation since the very first seed was planted.  The coffee beans are grown in nutrient-rich volcanic soil in the lush mountainous terrain.

I received the Signature Blend which is blended for taste, each of these coffees, Colombia, Guatemala, and Brazil, have distinct body characters and levels of acidity, making the coffee more complex in the cup than a single origin varietal. Sweetly intense, balanced aroma with milk chocolate, cedar and ripe tomato notes. The acidity is sweet and well integrated and the body medium to full. The finish is cocoa-toned and Very smooth. Medium-dark roast.  It was very good – easy to drink. I think it was one of the best coffee’s I have had in some time.

If you would like try some of this great coffee from Café Don Pablo™ you can purchase it HERE.  You can also find it at Costco Stores.

Café Don Pablo™ has offered to give one of my readers their own bag of coffee to try.  You must be 18+ US (48).

Improved cellular turnover refines your skin’s texture, while visibly plumping and firming your skin. With consistent use this will start to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.

The serum is also perfect for sun damaged skin. Azure Naturals have combined three of the most powerful anti-oxidants available into one serum! Vitamin C, Ferulic Acid, and Vitamin E when combined can provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, a 96% reduction of sunburn cells, and prevent the formation of new free radicals in sun exposed skin. This will fade age spots and dramatically improve discoloration leaving your skin with a youthful glow!

Azure Naturals Ultimate Vitamin C Serum is very easy to use.  You just apply a bit to your finger tips and then blend it into your skin.  Let your skin soak up all the goodness in the Serum.  The results varies on when you will see a difference in your skin.  It should start feeling smoother and more supple within a few days. Most people will start to see improvements in coloration as soon as 2-4 weeks, it may take others 6-8 weeks to see a significant difference. After around 6 months, you’ll reach the maximum benefits.

I use it each morning and night.  I do feel that my skin is smoother.  I can’t wait to see what it looks like in 6 months!  If you would like to purchase this Azure Naturals Ultimate Vitamin C Serum you can purchase it HERE on Amazon.com.

I am pretty lucky as I do not have a lot of muscle or joint pain, but poor Rex does. His shoulders hurt him a lot.  He had surgery a couple weeks ago on his left shoulder but is still in the process of healing and the right one still really hurts.  He has been using this MuscleCare Extra Strength Roll-on on it and it seems to help the pain.

This product is great for quick application in the workplace or in an athletic arena. The Extra Strength Roll-on is effective in as little as 30 seconds.

It is easy to use you just roll it on the area that is in pain.  He says it really helps the pain and that makes me happy.  The roll-on goes on clear and does not stain.

Did you ever look in the mirror and wonder when did those wrinkles and crows feet show up? I often wonder that.  It seems like they weren’t there yesterday.  I have found Bellafab Skincare Matrixyl 3000 Serum to help me get rid of those wrinkles, fine lines and firm my skin.  It is an all natural, non toxic parabeen free hypoallergenic skin car product. Here are some of the benefits of using Bellafab Skincare Matrixyl 3000 Serum:

  • Instant tightening, smoothing, firming and lifting of your skin
  • Reduced and prevent fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet
  • Decrease dark circles and puffiness around eyes
  • Brighten and even out skin tone and complexion
  • Hydrate the skin for a younger and more radiant look

What I like about this product is that it is made in small batches in the USA and is made in a FDA approved facility.  I like how it soaks into my skin and doesn’t leave it oily looking. It is very easy to use just place a small amount on your fingertips and massage into your skin.  You can use it under your makeup. I use it both in the morning and at night.

If you would like to try Bellafab Skincare Matrixyl 3000 Serum you can purchase it HERE on Amazon.com.

I did something pretty unique and  interesting yesterday.  I had a couple friends over to watch a movie and also to test Febreze and learn more about  Noseblindness. It is surprising how noseblind we become in our own homes. What is noseblind?  It is the gradual acclimation to the smells of one’s home, car, or belongings, in which the affected does not notice them (even though their guests do).

IMG_0023We have 2 cats so that means 2 litter boxes and also 2 cats smells.  Oscars favorite place to sit is either on the couch or in the window.  He is an older cat so he does smell. I just didn’t notice that the candles I used didn’t take the smell away. It may cover the smell or mix in with it but it doesn’t last the cat smell is still there.

What we did yesterday is have a couple friends over and the first thing we did was fill in a survey.  The survey asked what you smelled when you came in the door.  We had a choice of a variety things ~ but I think everyone put pet smells or candle smells for my home.  Then I made some popcorn to eat during the movie.  We took another survey after that and the major smell was the popcorn. I love the smell of popcorn what about you?  We eat popcorn a couple nights a week as a snack.  We took survey 2 ~ on this one I think everyone picked food because of the popcorn smell. We then watched a movie – the movie was great Non-Stop with Liam Neeson.  It  kept us guessing to the end who was sending the text.  I won’t spoil it for you but it was a good action movie.  After the movie we took a survey number 3.  By this time most of the popcorn smell was gone and the original odor was predominate again. IMG_0498

Next I got out the products Febreze had sent me which included:

  • Febreze Air Effects
  • Febreze Noticeables with refill
  • Febreze Fabric Refresher
  • Febreze Candle

I sprayed the couch with the Febreze Fabric Refresher and waited a few minutes.  We smelled the couch and the odor was gone and it just had a nice clean fresh smell.  I was surprised how good it smelled.  I checked it this morning and it is still working.  I like that it removed the smell instead of covering it up.  I also now have the Febreze Noticeable by the front door so when you walk into my house all you smell is Hawaiian Aloha ~ it is a combination of Hibiscus and Rain Forest.

You will should try the Noseblind test at your house and see what others smell when they walk in your door. I think you would be surprised.  I now will keep using Febreze to help my home smell fresh and clean and like I don’t have any pets.

Febreze has offered my readers a chance to win the Febreze products I received including a $60 AMEX gift card. You must be 18+ US.  Leave a comment on what you think people would smell when they walk into your house.  Extra entry for following Febreze on Facebook and Twitter.

IMG_0440I have a whole process for taking care of my skin but recently I upgraded it a bit with MelodySusie 4-in-1 Electric Facial & Body Brush Spa Cleaning System.  It is like I am getting a facial every day. Let me tell you a bit about the Cleaning System and how I use it.

It comes with 4 attachments that each serve a different purpose.  The first one I use is the soft brush. It exfoliates my face removing dead skin cells and helps remove dirt and oil.  As a result my skin looks more radiant. After cleansing my skin I like to put on moisturizer and I use the cosmetic sponge attachment to help with that. It gently spins and blends the moisturizer in. The third attachment is the pumice stone. I use that on my heels and bottom of my feet. It is just like I got a pedicure. My feet feel softer and look good. There is no need to hide them during the summer or winter in shoes!  The finial one is a massager that you can use anywhere on your body.

I love this whole set and was very excited to try it. It comes in a great storage and drying box with a cover. With the storage box it is easy to take it with you when you travel. This set is something you can use over and over again.

It is so easy to switch from one attachment to attachment.  You just push the brush onto the main unit and listen for the click then you know it is locked on.  Then just pull it off when you want to change it. The only thing that I wish was that I could use it in the shower, but it is not waterproof.

The price is good too only $14.99 and you can buy it HERE or on Amazon.com.

fiordifrutta-pears-for-one-and-a-half-inch-ad

Rigoni di Asiago is coming out with a new flavor of Fiordifrutta.  The new flavor is Pear and I was very lucky to receive a jar of it before it is on the market.  It is made with Bartlett pear and is 100% USDA organic, Non-GMO and Star-K certified, sweetened with apple juice and prepared with 3 lbs. of fruit per jar. No added sugar so fewer calories. . Rigoni di Asiago spreads are made using a patented low temperature fruit cooking process which conserves the vitamin and mineral nutrients of the natural fruit.

I have to tell you I loved it!  It has such a great flavor.  The first thing I tried it on was an English Muffin for breakfast  and it a nice fresh taste.

I also thought it would be good with pork and so I made a pear ginger sauce. Here is what I did – I browned some pork chops in a skillet.  When cooked through I took them out of the pan and added a bit of butter, onions and grated fresh ginger.  I cooked this for about a minute and then I added the Fiordifrutta Pears and combined.  I wanted a bit more sauce so added some chicken stock and a bit of balsamic vinegar.  Then I just cooked it until it was bubbly added the pork back in for a couple minutes.  I served it with rice and broccoli. It tasted really good. Both Rex and I thought the pear flavor really made the sauce.

If you would like to purchase Fiordifrutta in the Pear flavor it will soon be able to find it in stores near you nationwide or order it HERE online.  It should be available soon.

Rigoni di Asiago has offered one of my readers the chance to win a box that includes 2 jars of our Pear Fruit Spread a hat and an apron with a retail value of $19.  You must be 18 + US, DC.  Leave a comment on what you would like to try from Rigoni di Asiago.  Extra entry for following Rigoni di Asiago on Facebook.

About the Book:

A Precocious Young Girl Struggles to Find Love in Lost in Montreal from Incanto Press

San Francisco, CA – Incanto Press (incantopress.com), announces the publication of Lost in Montreal as part of its inaugural Discovery Series. Each book in the Discovery Series takes readers on a compelling and surprising journey. Lost in Montreal is a humorous coming-of-age story of a young girl who discovers her power to intoxicate men. It’s a power that allows her to avoid inner pain.

Written by highly acclaimed novelist and screenwriter, Gay Walley, Lost in Montreal tells the story of a lively, undaunted girl named Jacqueline. This fearless young girl is surrounded by family, friends and a collection of suitors who thrive on being survivors, living bravely and communicating through humor. Part of this collection of engaging characters is Jacqueline’s aloof, beautiful and seductive mother, Lisbeth who abandoned her at a young age. Her father, Gerald, a broken Englishman, who raised her in bars, is a source of dubitable wisdom. This unusual upbringing has left her lonely. She’s trying to find herself and wanting what most children want—their mother’s approval.

Jacqueline is not your average girl and goes about seeking her mother’s approval by getting involved with her mother’s boyfriends. Lisbeth is unmoved by her actions, leaving Jacqueline lonely and lost. How does she fill this void? She goes out in the streets and clubs of Montreal to distract herself with the power of her sexual attractiveness. Using wit and deep feeling, Lost in Montreal is a coming-of-age story that will turn the literary world on its heels. With Jacqueline leading the way, you’ll meet a collection of lives that are both sensual and fun. They are people who live boldly with independence, and in their own way, are all Lost in Montreal.

About the author:

Strings Attached (University Press of Mississippi, 1999) was a finalist for the Pirates Alley/Faulkner Award, the Writer’s Voice Capricorn Award, and Paris Book Festival Award. The Erotic Fire of the Unattainable (IML Publications, 2007) is being reissued by Skyhorse Publishing in 2014. It was a finalist for Paris Book Festival Award. A film based on the book is currently under production from a script written by Ms. Walley. She is also a Zoetrope finalist for her story, The Naked Maja.

Gay Walley lives in New York City.

Jonah’s Review:

Lost in Montreal is a coming of age book for a girl in her teens with parents who are destructive in different ways.  When I began this book it took me 4 tries to get past the first page.  And I am glad I did.  This is a dark, preverse story, and I was a little unsure of the book, but it is so well written that you can’t help but root for Jacqueline our main character to find her true happiness and belonging.  The ending wasn’t what I expected, but left me a sense of completion that seemed to fit the overall mood of the book.  Once I got into the storyline of the book, I couldn’t put it down.

You can purchase Lost in Montreal HERE.
