Many of my Northeast USA friends and family are hearing from their doctors that they need to take a D3 supplement because of the sun-little winters that we have up here. My doctor emphatically recommended me to take the vitamin several years ago.

Because I only eat plant-based whole foods (nothing with a face or a mother), it's hard to find supplements without a fish oil base. So I was excited to try these liquid drops by Zoomavit. They are free from sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives and vegetarian friendly.  No artificial coloring or flavoring, either.

There isn't any taste and the liquid just disappears on my tongue for immediate dispersion into my body. When you are taking 2 or 3 drops (each drop is 400 IU), a 2 fl. oz. bottle will last a long time. They are also made in the USA!

I have been looking, quite some time, for a facial moisturizer that is organic and works! Most facial moisturizers leave your skin dry feeling, like you didn't put anything at all on or it's greasy and
your foundation cakes after application.

When I received this product from PUNCH, I thought, "Here's another product that offers a lot but does it live up to its advertising?"

I've used it for over a week now and I love it!.

The lotion applies so easy and smooth that my skin feels refreshed and youthful. The scent is light and pleasant. My makeup glides on over the cream and I have noticed a difference in my skin. It is softer and has less surface lines for this 62 year old. I use it regularly morning and night.

I highly recommend this product for someone to try.  PUNCH NATURAL SKIN CARE AND REPAIR.

I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.



Wow! These are amazing!  Who knew that foot skin repair could be so easy!  I suffered all winter with calloused cracked soles. I would scrape and moisturize every day to no avail because my feet would look the same after a few days.

UNTIL I received these moisturizing socks.

In the morning, I decided to try these out. My heels, the balls of my feet and my large toe had heavy callouses. What did I have to lose? I thought.

So matching my outfit to my socks, I wore them all day in regular shoes and didn't remove them until around 7pm.

To my surprise, my feet were softened to the point that I was able to scrape the callouses right off!

My feet were very soft and unharmed by the constant wearing all day. I even walked my treadmill with them afterwards. I definitely will look for another pair, in black maybe.

I think they are hand-washable, as the package didn't come with any directions, but the sock itself was of good quality. The bottom inside material was a little rubbery feeling but that's what holds the moisture in your feet. I give them 5 stars!!! BROWN SOCKS

I love these triple foam applicators when I apply my liquid foundation. By wetting the sponge a little, the applicator allows the foundation to blend in smoothly over the contours of my face.

I use an under-eye concealer, too, and the applicator blends that right in so that it isn't noticeable. The applicator, also, doesn't let me apply too much pressure to the thin tender under eye skin.

All three are substantial enough to maintain a firm grip on the applicator.

Completely washable after use.  I received this product at a reduced cost in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

This is a cool product that I received at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. Now, I'm not an outdoor runner, but if I was and it was evening or night time, I would definitely wear these LED armbands for my safety.  It's better to be seen than it is to be hidden from the view of motorists or even other pedestrians. 
The two armbands come in a protective sleeve. Each band has a replaceable CR2032 Lithium battery. The slapband design makes for a sure fit on most wrists or biceps.  You could even put one on your dog as a collar when they go outside at night. They are lightweight. and highly reflective, as you can see in the pictures below. The edges of the bands have reflective cloth, too.

The glow options are steady on, slow flash and fast flash. My favorite color is green but they come in blue, pink, orange and red, also.
This pic is on my forearm in the dark with steady on.

I love coconut oil.  It is a staple in my cupboard and bathroom. 

Coconut Oil has so many uses.  I brush my teeth, hydrate my hair, baking, lip balm, etc.  Not all coconut oil is the same. This company makes it 100% Organic and it has the USDA seal.  It is NON-GMO, too. That is very important to me because I don't eat meat, dairy or processed foods and try to use healthier oils for cooking. Coconut oil is great for high-temp frying or cooking, unlike other oils.
The texture of oil is very smooth. I use it in place of butter...especially on raisin toast.  YUM!


 Here is a product that I have never used before receiving these at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I have always used my fingers to apply any liquid foundation. It gets quite messy and when I use my fingers, I tend to press harder than needed. Then, I realized the more the pressure, the more the wrinkles! Yikes! 

The first time I used these sponge-type applicators, I noticed how nice the liquid foundation blended onto my skin without the pressure of my fingers.  The applicators are lightweight and substantial enough that the don't slip out of my fingers.

Comes in a package of 2. Easily washable.

I received this item at a reduced price in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Time to get up! We had such a mild winter, I can't believe that I was such a couch potato!

This is a neat unit that can be used in any room where you have a door that closes. I set it up in my hallway bedroom door near the hinge (per instructions) and began to do arm presses.

The hand grips are sturdy and good for most any size hand. The straps adjusted to my short height and my husband's taller one. It was neat to use my own body weight to improve my strength.

Easy set up and removal. There is a nice storage case.  It is very portable to take anywhere, even on vacation.


All of the harnesses and carabiner clips are of good quality for safety.
The directions are easy to follow and the pictures give you the proper alignment to prevent injury. TRX has a done a great job designing this training system and instructing the user how to get healthy safely.

Skinny Legged Jeans, who can live without them?  They are great with boots and a long tunic or belted and sandals. 

 They are well-constructed and the stretching fabric allows for freedom of movement. Pockets front and back allow for easy phone carrying and front zip gives a form-fitted appearance. I received a 3/4 which was too small for me. I normally wear a 4/6 misses and would have to go up to an 8 because they are for a skinnier leg than mine. Overall they are a great design.

Green tea is my favorite beverage and I used to drnk so much of it that it tasted more like water after a while.  I am basically a herbivore, eating only plants and nothing that has a face or a mother!

I am always searching  for recipes to vary the staples of my eating plan and when this bag of Matcha Powdered Green Tea became available for FREE in exchange for my honest and unbiased review, I jumped at it.

I made two recipes.  The one below is a chia seed/almond milk/Matcha mixture with a little maple syrup. I had to refrigerate it overnight and couldn't wait to have it in the morning. It was delicious! The Matcha powdered green tea gave me an extra boost of energy. I gave up cups of tea and coffee because of the caffeine levels but I believe that this will be my new beverage for the morning.

The other recipe is a very easy mixture of Matcha and honey to be used as a facial mask.  Just mix enough of the two ingredients together to make a paste. Apply to your face and let sit 20 minutes. Rinse and you are ready to go!  Great product!

My husband just fell in love when I received these ear buds with bluetooth for FREE in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. AND did I say they were wireless? Oh, yes...

These come in tons of colors but I chose the green (my fav). There are plenty of spare ear buds and a charging cord for the bluetooth.  The directions were easy to follow and my husband's ears were blissfully hearing his music quickly.  I called him on his phone and the call interrupted the music but when we hung up, the bluetooth took him right back to his Amazon music. Great product for his Easter basket!

Ahhhhh! Heaven!


This is a nice lightweight protective case for an IPhone 6S. It has a rubberized non-slip backing to prevent my phone from sliding off a table or desk.  I love the handy kickstand belt clip. When my 6S arrives this will be the go-to case when I am working or outside in my yard. Most of the time I don't have pockets and I need my phone with me, so this is the answer to my dilemna!

I received this skirt at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

I love this skirt but I had ordered the incorrect size and while I considered my short stature, the length was still too short for me ( a 60 year old) to wear. It is definitely a skater or mini skirt for a teenager

This one is a size small in gray. The lace overlay has a nice sheen and a silver metal zipper in the back. The fabric is a lovely lace bonded polyester and very well made. I don't think I would wear it in the middle of a hot summer, though, because of the thickness of the fabric. Double check your size in the size chart that the listing shows so that you will have a perfect fit.


With all of the identity theft these days, it's hard to see which way the threat will come so we should take steps to protect our vital personal information.  One of the more recent ways of theft is to steal the magnetic strip information from your credit, debit and id cards while they are still in your wallet! It's called RFID.

Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. A tag can be read from up to several feet away and does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader to be tracked.

This vendor sells a group of 10 to protect your cards and comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. I like the colorful designs that will make it easier to find a specific card that I will need to use.

I received these wonderful blue glass spray bottles for FREE in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

I am so tired of plastic spray bottles.  Every time that I try to re-use one, it has a lingering smell that won't work with what I want to fill it up with.

Other spray bottles that I have used did not have a sprayer that lasted, either.  They would clog up or just quit working after several uses, but these work very well. There is an off, straight stream or spray option. The glass is a heavy duty 16 oz container. I love the cobalt blue color too. 

Of the many uses that I can think of is a spritzer for my hair, body or houseplants. I could also use one to spritz my oven-roasted veggies with a small amount of oil and thereby reducing the fat content in my diet.

This the coolest little air pump that I have ever seen! I am a Sunday School teacher and for special events we are always blowing up balloons. Sometimes it's great to give the kids a chance to let off some steam (or hot air) by having them blow up the balloons. Most of the time, though, I would like to have them inflated before class or a special event begins.

If you have ever blown up a lot of balloons without an air pump, you know how tiring it is.  That's why I'm so excited that I have this opportunity to try out this product.
  The unit comes with three different sized adapters.  I found the middle one to be perfect for the size of balloons that I used and it was fast!  My classroom is more complete now that I have this accessory to help me more effectively present my lessons with enough of my own hot air!


Ever get leg cramps?  Usually that happens when my legs are cold or if I happen to stretch my leg in the wrong direction and wham! I have excruciating pain in my calf that doesn't go away very fast.

These sleeves are so nice. Instantly, I could feel the compression upon my leg. Another great attribute is that they are footless so that when I'm in bed, my feet won't get too warm and sweat. They are of a good quality fabric that retains its shape.

They improve circulation in my legs and are great for when I'm exercising or jogging. If I played sports, I would certainly want to wear them to avoid possible strains or leg injuries.

Ever try to remove a cork from a bottle...intact...without a corkscrew? I remember that my mother did...once.  We had bits of cork floating around in the depths of the liquid! Any kind of corked liquid needs to have one of these handy gadgets to open your bottles without mess.

This is a combination 4 in 1 opener.

Baby carriers! Wow, have they changed since I had my babies! Since technology has improved so much I needed up-to-date, relevant mommies to give me some feedback for this item. 

Mom likes:  1. The color and the lightweight texture of the fabric. 
2.  The fully adjustable design. One mom has a child with very chubby legs and felt that her daughter would fit in comfortably.
3.  They loved the head 'bonnet' covering for walks out in the sun.
4.  The shoulder and waist straps were padded well for comfort.
5. The enclosed directions WITH PICTURE EXAMPLES were clear and easily understood.
6. The bonus FREE e-book was a sure hit!

The product seems to be what moms would purchase for the protection and comfort of their children and durable enough for repeat usage.

I received these food containers for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

These are the neatest containers that I have used for food storage. The lids fit securely to keep in any juices that you don't want to lose.

I made a large meatloaf for my husband and was able to divide all of the leftovers into a couple of ready-to-heat meals for the week. 

I could have frozen them but my husband loves my meatloaf too much to wait to eat the rest.

The package of 10 fit together snugly for easy storage in my cupboards.

I like that they are microwave safe and BPA Free so I don't have to worry about any chemical reactions when they are cooking. 

The clear plastic lids let me see the food content when they are in the freezer. Just a little over a dollar per set, makes them very economical, too.  Very easy to clean and no distortion after microwave heating.
I also loved the way that the entire meal was in one container, 
making a well-balanced meal ready to go!  ORDER HERE!


I cannot wait to upgrade my IPhone 5S to a 6S!  In anticipation, I received this carrying case for free for my honest and unbiased review.

I am very particular about my cases.  They cannot be slippery plastic and must have a clip so that when I am not wearing pocketed jeans, I can still carry my phone with me.

This case has a non-skid shell and the belt clip is ample that it will fit snugly on my waistband. The belt clip also doubles as a kick stand so that I will be able to watch my phone as I am working.

The molded design will securely hold my new phone.

The retail cost is very budget friendly from Amazon.. ORDER HERE
