Gummy Bears and Fruit

Pintrest Fan?

Have we bumped into each other on Pintrest lately? If not hurry up because I am looking for a Thanksgiving short cut or a big turkey recipe that makes me want to RUN out and buy a big bird and slave over it all day.I don't have an instagram account but I am crazy over Pintrest.  Where else can I pin cat memes and recipes all in one place and then send it to my daughter with a note attached?? Hurry Pintrest with me now. Now what do gummy bears, a juicy piece of meat or fruit have in common? Answer: they all go tumbling down into the gut and yet they are not all beneficial to it.

Belly Detox

Did I mention to you that I am on my fifth day of my simple belly(gut) detox. Now, I am not testifying to any weight loss(yet) but I am saying- mama, I like it. Just pop over and see the quickie tutorial. Nothing foo-foo here, just two cloves a day for 10 days. That famous Television doc had me so inspired to do this but what really grabbed my attention on this topic was a few Youtube Vids. Yep I was totally ready to dive into any gut remedy that was presented to me. Who said fear isn't a great motivator? I will say, at about day 3 of the remedy I started to experience less stomach bloat and some very real bowel movements. I did not stop eating meats entirely- I ate much less meats( probably 1-4 ounces at two meals) and the double the veggie intake. I pretty much had 2 -5 ounces of veggies at each meal x's two. Other ways to get that gut flora in order is with teas, tumeric or papaya seeds and honey. I haven't tried that yet but I'm thinking it may be much milder in general. I'm happy with the garlic gut detox.. it's just very peppery going down.

Sharing is caring

While surfing Doc Oz's website, I noticed he has another business outlet called ShareCare. I was curious so I clicked and clicked away. I was whisked off to his other site- apparently he does more than just heart surgeries. He is everywhere. This site(sharecare) offers real age solutions for almost every aspect of a persons life. Can you say'cha-ching'?

Well I am back to surfing for more eyebrow raising things and to eat my citrus too. Thanks for peeking into this post and let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below or on my Facebook page but make sure you like or friend me first!

Why Choose Soy Candles?

I have never tried a soy candle.- until now. I have heard other people stating all the reasons why soy is good in the world of candles. Soy is a vegatable wax made from soybeans.

Old Factory Candles have self trimming cotton wicks and premium fragrance oils.
This cute gift set comes in themed scents and burns for up to 20 hours, the set I tested was called Fall Harvest. The candles in this gift set are: Pumpkin Spice, Autumn leaves and Cranberry. My favorite out of this set was cranberry. There is so many scents to choose from. What's nice is these candles are hand poured in the USA and they are available on Amazon for purchase.

Can Halloween Be Sultry and Mysterious At Home?

 The thought somewhat diminishes when the kids feel they are too cool to dress up and go door to door. The kids then just become candy consuming machines.  What do us mama's do to make this day fun? I Pintrest a bunch of recipes, DIY's  and revel in Halloween themed foods that make me and everyone else smile and chew. I don't just eat my way through Halloween though(that would be frowned upon). Months back I found this Day of The Dead wallpaper. Who would ever think wallpaper could be so freaking Halloweenie and satisfying for the DIY/renovation mamas? Try not to be mesmerized.

A Halloween share for you, from me, is this Day of The Dead wallpaper. It's simply sultry and mysterious. Granted the person who grabs up this wallpaper- had better be equally so. If this doesn't peak new possibilities, buy black,shiny spiked shoes. Scary and sexy. Check them out here,

What was your Halloween experience like this year? Did any of your kids opt out to dress up or door to door treating?










Happy Halloween!
