Bic Soleil Bella

Yes! Another BZZ for you lovely blog readers! I am doing a new campaign with BzzAgent.com


I received my BZZ kit, with a new package of Bic Soleil Bella razors. 4 blades for a closer shave.


When I received the kit, I used 1 of the razors, and WOW! That was awesome! A very close, smooth shave was achieved! My daughter even snagged one of them to use for herself! Typical pre-teen behavior though! LOL!


As far as these razors go, they have 4 blades as mentioned before, with a pivoting head that moves with your body's curves! This allows you a closer, more smooth shave with less effort! Trust me! This razor also has an ez-rinse technology, you know those razors that you rinse off in the water and STILL have to relentlessly beat it against the tub to clear it? This is NOT one of those! A swish in the water and it comes up clean! No more beating the razor on the tub! It has a soothing moisture strip with coconut milk, which helps with moisturizing your skin while you shave. Also, just a fun fact for the name of the razors, the Bic Soleil Bella, Soleil is French for sun, and Bella means beautiful in Italian. Soleil is pronounced So-Lay.


Don't just take my word for it though! You will definitely want to try these razors, if you need a coupon for $3.00 off, leave a comment, and I can snail mail you one if you are not close by. Also, visit feelthesoleil.com to learn more about BIC Soleil Bella, find out how hot you are with the "What's Your HQ?" quiz, and get tips for a great shave and fun in the sun.

Twitter

Click HERE to go to my Twitter page.

So, Twitter is kinda cool. I mean, it's sorta like Myspace status updates, so if you liek short updates, then it is cool. So many people are tweeting these days, lots of celebs on there and it is sorta cool to see what they are doing (assuming it IS really said celeb). At any rate, if you haven't checked it out, you should, you might like it!

Has anyone seen....

Hannah Montana the Movie?

I took my daughters out for a girls day out Thursday, took them to eat, and then to a movie. My girls being aged 7, 9, and 11 wanted to see Hannah Montana the Movie.

And WOW, it was actually good. I cried during a couple of parts. It had a really good storyline, and I think it was well acted. Billy Ray Cyrus did leave a little to be desired in the acting department though. But he was NOT horrible.

It is amazing how HUGE Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus has become. It is like a household name anymore!!

So, did anyone else watch it and like it like I did?

Children's Claritin

Well, it is allergy season, and my kids always seem to have a flare up at this time of year.
Some of my children are worse than others. But, there is something that really helps them a great deal and that is Childrens Claritin. It provides non-drowsy relief so I can send them to school with this medication and they are not groggy while trying to learn.

I like the chewable tablets for my 7 year old and she does not mind the taste at all. And, it's the #1 pediatrician recommended non-drowsy brand. IN addition to chewables, they have a syrup form, and reditabs as well. So, you can see which your child likes and tolerates best if you have a child with allergies.

I highly recommend Childrens Claritin for any parent who has a child with allergies!

And just in case you did not know, this is part of a BZZ campaign with BZZagent.com!~

Glade Sense & Spray

Some of you may or may not know that I am a BZZ agent with bzzagent.com! It is a great way to try new products and get the word out about these products through the power of word of mouth or BZZing!

The Glade sense and spray just makes a lot of sense! It doesn't spray air freshener in the room unless the innovative motion sensor detects motion, and it lets out a controlled spray for instant freshness! After it lets out a spray it locks for 30 minutes to avoid unnecessary spraying of the fragrance.

Glade Sense & Spray motion-activated spray is definitely the smart way to keep your home smelling fresh without the need for typically wasteful automatic air fresheners or aerosol sprays (which can sometimes be a little embarrassing to use). It's easy to set up and easy to use. All you have to do is insert the refill canister in the sleek spray unit, pull the red tab to activate the batteries, place it where you need it and forget about it. Glade Sense & Spray motion-activated spray will take care of the rest!

Ghost Whisperer - Melinda is PREGNANT!!

YAY! Ok, I know I get too wrapped up in characters on my shows, but I can't help it!

I am SO glad Melinda is pregnant, and that it happened BEFORE Jim's accident.

I really have to admit, I do not like the current storyline, only the part where Jim is Sam. I am glad that Jim has HIS own memories back, and although we as the viewers see Jim, except for those silly mirror shots, everyone else does not see Jim, so it is weird.

I can't wait to see what next season brings for Ghost Whisperer!!

Thoughts? Opinions?

Swine Flu - Scary or Hyped up by the media?

Ok, personally, generally I do panic when things like this happen. Back in 2001 when we had that whole anthrax in the mail thing, I was a basketcase. I was convinced me, my hubby and children would all get Anthrax and die.

My anxiety over such things has eased up, but this swine flu has me a little bit scared, admittedly. I am not overly scared like I was with the anthrax thing, but, I am scared.

It is just scary that they continue to discover new cases of this etc. So, how do YOU feel about the Swine Flu? Are you scared or taking it easy with this?

Random Lyrics

Well, not entirely random. Like em' (the lyrics) love the song.
Going through something tough, as always. You ever feel like the earth just caves in all in one fell swoop?

I woke up today in London
As the plane was touching down
And all I could think about was monday
And maybe ill be back around
If this keeps me away much longer
I dont know what i will do
Youve got to understand its a hard life
That im going through
And when the night falls in around me
I dont think ill make it through
Ill use your light to guide the way
Cause all I think about is you
Well L.A is getting kinda crazy
And New york is getting kinda cold
I keep my head from geting lazy
I just cant wait to get back home
And all these days i spend away
Ill make up for this i swear
I need your love to hold me up
When its all too much to bear
And when the night falls in around me
I dont think ill make it through
Ill use your light to guide the way
Cause all I think about is you
And all these days i spend away
Ill make up for this i swear
I need your love to hold me up
When its all too much to bear
When the night falls in around me
I dont think ill make it through
Ill use your light to guide the way
Cause all I think about is you

The fangirl in me...

I am such a fan of all of my TV shows. And Supernatural happens to be one of my favorites. I mean, they are just HOT! So, I am always looking at fan vids on YouTube and I found a Supernatural one ages ago. It is awesome, a must watch, and whoever created it, is just awesome with the editing too!



Now, you cant tell me they didnt bring sexy back!!! LOL

Dale Earnhardt SR.

This is just such a good video, I love the music with the video of Dale.
Now, I was never a HUGE Nascar fan, but I recall all the Sunday's when we had just one TV in the house, and I was forced to watch it. And, well I heard my step dad hoop and holler for Dale, so I guess I sorta, kinda liked it in time.

When Dale was killed, I was so sad. I was relatively young, or youngER as I recall. And I just cried, and cried. And a couple of days after, they had some tribute thing on ABC and it was set to this song. Which is the Bob Segar Band's song, "Still the Same"

The song was catchy, not so much to me then, but it is now. I love the song, it fits Dale perfectly, and it also reminds me so much of my Uncle James too. Just those lyrics, because James was sort of just always on the top of things. He was good, and he knew he was good, and did not mind to tell people just how good he was at whatever he endeavored to do. That was his personality.

Anyway, without further ado, here is the video:



And the lyrics to this wonderful song:

You always won, everytime you placed a bet..
You're still damn good, no ones gotten to you yet.
Everytime they were sure they had you caught..
You were quicker than they thought.
You'd just turn your back and walk..
You always said, the cards would never do you wrong.
The trick you said was never play the game too long..
A gamblers share, the only risk that you would take..
The only loss you could forsake..
The only bluff you couldn't fake..

And you're still the same..
I caught up with you yesterday..
Moving game to game..
No one standing in your way..
Turning on the charm..
Long enough to get you by..
You're still the same..
You still aim high..

There you stood, everybody watched you play..
I just turned and walked away..
I had nothing left to say..

cause you're still the same..
You're still the same..
Moving game to game..
Some thlngs never change..
You're still the same..

True Love Designs

Well, I seen one of my Myspace friends was looking for a design partner, so I figured, why not? I like to design, don't get to do it as much as I would like to, and I am going to see if they want me. So, I sent Caya an email, and woo-hoo I am in. So, I am now a part of TrueLoveDesigns.

Thrift Store find of the day..



Well, anyone who knows me well, knows that I go thrift store shopping pretty much every Wednesday. I love to find things and get good bargains. Well, today I found some clothes for me and the kids. And I got a LOT of books, and I do mean a lot LOL. As if I don't have enough as it is. So, I got pretty much a whole garbage bag full of books today.




There is a good variety that I got, but the stack you will see is the spiritual stack only. I am trying to categorize my mess of books.




So, here is what I got today....



Yeah, that's just a "few" of what I got today. I have a real addiction to books too. I can read nearly anything. So, in addition to being a digital packrat, I am also a real packrat LOL...

Oh well, we all gotta have something don't we?

And here is the upper part of my bookshelf. And this is AFTER cleaning it up and making a box of books to mail to Michelle. Just gotta get them to the post office!



I have literally read every book you can see there. Some, I have read twice. Depends on how well I like it.

Surprisingly, I have NOT read nor do I even have the Twilight books. But, I am secretly hoping once Michelle and I get our book exchange going that she will send those. :D

Until next time...

Playing with Photoshop

I have been dying to photoshop something, anything. So, I decided to play around with one of my hubby's pictures. I gave him a tattoo, because he is a crybaby and wont get one for real. So, I will have to settle with the digital variety.

It makes him look so HOT though, if only he was covered with em. Think, Prison Break tats. YUM YUM! So, anyway, you can see the before and after below.

Oh, and I HAVE to throw this in, the pic was taken at the Crazy Donkey in Long Island, NY, we were there seeing James Marsters in concert. That is a luscious man. Even though he no longer has that bleached blonde hair, he still looks so hot. I will blog about that one at another time LOL.. So much to tell there!

Playing with pictures


Well I was trying to duplicate an effect I found on this chicks Myspace. Well, by gum I just can't duplicate the effect, its really porcelainy...Is that a word? LOL... I played with this one a little bit, minus the vignette effect Bunny told me to add. I don't like it. Still not satisified. Bunny told me Lightroom I think it was, was a good program. So, I may try to get that, soon! I wanna edit my pictures. Hmmm, how am I gonna edit myself to make myself pretty and not fat? LOL...

We had a little bit of snow today!!

Well, we finally got a little bit of snow today to go along with the extreme cold temperatures. Not that it was a lot of snow, and it pretty much melted as soon as it hit! But, it was fun for the kids, and Madison was more than excited! So, I was stuck at the computer working, as usual. I sent Emily out to snap some pics of the snow, so I could blog about it~ So, here are a few pics of the snow! (It wasn't much, but was enough to excite the kids, none the less.)

Christmas Creativity

Ok, so for Christmas, my stepdaughter wanted the trademark apparently in style boots with the little pom-pom balls and all. Well, I could not find any boots like that anywhere, 3 days before Christmas and shopping on a budget, the boots I did find were way overpriced. So, I figured well if I can find a pair with fur, then I can go to Michael's Arts and Crafts and get the stuff to do the own little pom=pom balls and the string.

So, I did just that. I got the boots as you can see pre-made at Kmart for like $25 and since our budget per kid was a little bit more meager this year than the norm, I done pretty darn good. I went to Michael's who by the way also had some AWESOME stocking stuffers for $1.00, so I grabbed some stocking stuffers while I was there. Anyway, I got the little Pom-poms for the boots for like $5.00 and the string used for the boots was like $4.00 so I have like $34.00 in these boots. Not bad, considering every pair I seen with this particular style was at least $75.00
And below you can see the fruits of my labor.

BEFORE

AFTER


So, overall I thought I did pretty well, and my Step-daughter LOVED them! So, she was very happy opening these up! So, are you ever crafty? I can be SOMETIMES. I definitely lack in that creative flair that some people have, but sometimes I can just do it. :)

Me and Mom and 2nd night out - CANCELLED



You know what, it was COLD last night, we are talking like single digit cold. Mom and I went to JcPenney and she bought me a few outfits (surprisingly). Well, Mom can be so goodhearted, she tries. I got 2 really cute shirts, and a skirt set for church. So, I am happy.




After we went shopping, we went to Brothers Pizza in Staunton. My aunt owns a part of it, so we do all eat there when we get a chance. I was worried I would not be able to eat anything since my diet is challenging at best, but I ordered a salad and that went well. We took some pics of me and mom, and my Mom and her sister Barbie. All in all, Mom and I got some one on one time with one another, and had a good time. I can't tell you the last time Mom and I had a night out.




I am grateful that Mom and I had a night out just she and I, and I wish we could do it more often, my treat too. Maybe take her out and buy her something for no reason like she did me. :)




So, my hubby and I were talking, and we decided maybe we should NOT have our night out tonight because it is soooo cold outside, you walk out there, and the cold slices through you like a knife. No lie, it is THAT cold! And to top it off, it is that cold and NO snow! That is the sucky part, I could almost stand the cold, if there was a little snow to back it up. Hubby thinks I just don't want to go out with him. That could not be further from the truth. I really do. But, man I cannot stand that cold. And I would rather stay in this house in my PJ's all day long. So, maybe Hubby and I can plan our night out together for next weekend, or the weekend after when hopefully it is not THIS freaking cold. I cannot stand cold. I would rather be sweltering in 100 degree heat, for real!


Here is a pic of Mom and her sister Barbie, we call her a witch, so she snatched a broom, which oddly turned out to take the whole frame and look like a stripper pole LOL...

Girls Night Out

Well, my Mom and I are having a girls night out tonight. She has been going through some pretty tough times, and she just need to let go a little and have some girl time. Awkward much? Me and my Mother out together? LOL....That should be an adventure.

Tomorrow night will be me and my hubby's night out. We plan on going to Red Lobster since we have so many gift cards to use there. LOL..

I will let ya know how my night's out go. Yes plural. Mine and Moms, and Mine and Hubby's!

Till next time...

Graphics Addiction...

So, I got this awesome 250GB External HD ages ago. But, guess what? It's like 20GB close to being full, WHY you may ask? I have a huge graphics addiction, especially when it comes to Digital Scrap booking. I have way too many kits, actions etc. And I don't get much of a chance to use them, I did work on a blogger layout for a friend tonight using Microferk's Black Ice kit. That turned out Ok, I am so anal, as long as my girl was happy, it's all good. :)

So, in short I am addicted to graphics, but no it is not just scrapbooking kits, its Paint Shop Pro Tubes, Masks, FONTS!! You name it and I bet I have thousands of whatever! I also love DeviantArt! That is one really awesome website!

Ok, so here is one kit I am really really LOVING right now, and it is the next one I want to use to scrap a pic, but when oh when will I find the time?



I cannot wait to get my hands into this kit and do something with it. I am really lacking creativity at the moment, but I am going to try to do something with it SOON! LOL...

10 signs you are a WAHM

Signs you are a Work at Home Mom

1. You sometimes have breakfast foods for dinner, or dinner leftovers for breakfast. Cold pizza anyone?

2. You inwardly roll your eyes whenever anyone asks for you to volunteer your time for ANYTHING. You hardly have time to take a shower; what are they thinking?

3. Your family gets all of their clean laundry out of a laundry basket instead of their dresser drawers.

4. Baking anything always involves some sort of box.

5. Instead of asking "What are we having for dinner?" they what to know "Where are we going to get dinner?" or "Who is delivering?"

6. You frequently resort to bribery; ie. "If you can just be quiet for 30 more minutes we'll go get a sno-cone/go to the park/read a book together etc."

7. The first thing you do in the morning is start the coffee pot. The first thing you do after lunch is start the coffee pot ... again.

8. You have a group of online friends, probably on a forum, that you chat with nearly every day.

9. If one more person asks you how that "work at home thing is going" you will scream. Really.

10. You think all of this is worth it to be able to stay home with your precious children!

Stripper Mail part 2

Ok, so the stripper emailed me back on Myspace. And you know what, she is sorta cool, and she said that she didn't send out the cards, some chick did who is I guess semi-stalking her or something.

So, now I feel sorry for the stripper/dancer chick. KINDA... I mean, come on, I am still ME you know? She was nice enough to me, so I couldn't turn around and be mean to her. And I did apologize for calling her a sleaze. So, anyway. Yeah, I guess that little story is played out now. I am happy again. I know my hubby didn't do anything wrong now. Well, I think anyway LOL..

Ritually Pissed: My New Year's Resolutions

You gotta read this one!! It is uplifting. :D

Ritually Pissed: My New Year's Resolutions

R.I.P Prison Break


So, I just went to one of my favorite celeb blogs. PerezHilton.com...And lo and behold Prison Break has been cancelled. Secretly, I think Perez like to break some meak little hearts like mine. I LOVE Prison Break, I mean cant they throw Wentworth in there, in prison again just for eye candy purposes. I mean, WHAT AM I GONNA WATCH?!


I am going to miss seeing Wentworth and Dominic on the small screen. But, I have a feeling Prison Break has launched their careers a good bit for them and they will do well. I didn't really like the direction this season was going in anyway. I mean come on, their mom is ALIVE and their opposition? Not cool. Plus, just as soon as the writers make Bellick a character you actually LIKE, they kill him off. No closure there. Plus, we never seen a body from that chinese dude Kim. How do we know the assassin from this season is dead too? I hope they can wrap up the season gracefully, and answer all those unanswered questions!




Till next time....

Stripper Mail

Well, I went out today to do some errands, and checked my mail before I went. I get a card in the mail, well *I* didn't get it, it was addressed to my husband. It was a normal Christmas card, no signature or anything. Inside the card were 2 little coupons for a free lap dance from some stripper named Giselle something or other. OK, so either this chick purchased a mailing list online, OR, someone gave my hubby's address for some reason or another.

On the coupon, it has her myspace URL. And me being well me, could not resist. I had to email her on there and tell her that my husband wasn't big on sleaze. So, I did. And I told her she needed to go to one of the VH1 shows such as Rock of Love for a good hook up and exposure. I mean, that's all they ever are on there, right? White trash, well Ambre wasn't. And neither is one of the new chicks. Cant recall her name, one from ROL Bus.

So anyway, I call him and I didn't curse him out, but I asked him why he would be getting it? I feel like it is probably spam mail. BUT, in the same day now, he gets a text message for some viagra thing. OK, if it is personal, they don't know my Doodle, because he simply does not need viagra. LOL.. So, I figure the stripper mail is spam. And, the viagra thing, well I know that was.

Moving on from that, Kyle XY came back on last night & *YAY*..It did not disappoint at all. Even though we were in such a long hiatus before this season premiered. I liked it! I missed the Bachelor last night, I think my DVR was on overload.

Till next time...

Well...Hello!

I am not entirely new to blogging, I have had quite a few, but I need one I am going to stick with, and it is sorta one of my New Years resolutions too! So, here I am! I will probably blog about various things in my life, things that make me angry, sad, whatever! So, expect a lot of ranting, some raving, some laughs and some sadness! I am very diverse in my moods like that, feeling the whole range of human emotions from this to that blabla. You get the idea!
