Super Shots Review

SUPER SHOTS…what pop into your mind?

Honestly my first reaction was the thought of those energy drink in the tiny little Barbie size bottles.

When I heard I would be doing a review on Super Shots for this month’s Gabby Moms mission, I have to admit I was very curious!

But still what is Super Shots?

Super Shots are actually something amazing and oh so useful!

The Encouraging Mom Super Shots is a huge dose of well…encouragement, tips, ideas, and God’s Love! I guess they are like little energy drinks…but for your heart, mind and relationships!

The new program:

The Encouraging Mom is a new membership program from Eternal Encouragement that offers a monthly Super Shot – each month’s Super Shot has a theme and contains four products in a number of formats (eBooks, audio downloads and Chick Flicks). Each product is guaranteed to be New and Fresh and it’s only $7.97 per month for 4 total products a month!

This new program is coming soon at EternalEncouragment.com

I was so excited to get review Super Shots: Whinning – Winning the Whinning War!

I just want to give a little summery…

A few years ago I would have never thought I needed this…but…now at 6, I SO do! My Son has started using whinning to get his way in all aspects. It DRIVES ME CRAZY! Whinning to me is worse than Cars with Bass, Squealing Breaks, Nails on a Chalk Board and Neighbors that have parties in the Middle of the night all rolled into one.

The Tips that are jam packed in to this Super Shot are wonderful! Lorrie knew exactly what she was talking about! After just a few days using Lorrie’s tips the Whinning had nearly stopped! My Husband couldn’t wait to read this Super Shot as well! Now, we have this happy little face…

…Mommy and Daddy are happy too!!!

Bling Highlights Review

Featuring:

Sick boring winter hair? Want a change? How about adding a little bling…Bling Highlights!

What are Bling Highlights hair tensil? It simply a strand of colorful tensil you tie in your hair! It’s so easy that you’ll never want to get your hair colored or highlights again!! When tied in hair correctly Bling Highlights can remain in hair for weeks. Bling Highlights are easy to remove, so you can change your highlight color anytime!

Bling Highlights come in 43 colors and two lenghts: Short – 19 inch strands of tensil each tube contains 20 strands. Long – 38 inch strands of tensil each tube contains 20 strands.

The prices are great!! $4.95 for a tube (20 strands) of Short & $9.45 for a tube (20 strands) of long! Free shipping for orders over $30
 
I was so excited the morning I saw my mail carrier walking up to my house with the huge poster tube the Bling Highlight are delivered in! Bling Highlights let me choose my color of choice: GOLD! I thought that Gold would stand out and look really beautiful in my very dark hair…it did!

The day after my Bling Highlight came was my husbands birthday and we were going to spend the whole day out and about. The morning of his birthday I got up at 5am while everyone else was sleeping…I needs some ‘me’ time!! I decided to put a bunch of Bling Highlights in my hair.
 

You can check out the how to put Bling Highlight in your hair HERE!
 
I’ll be honest the first strand was a little tricky to put in, I redid it (with the same piece of tensil twice) But, after a few times I was a pro! I put 8 highlights in, since you tie them in folded in half I had 16 beautiful sparkly Gold highlights. It was very easy to add the tensil to my bangs, I cut one long strand in half to make two shorter strands. Once they were tied in my bangs I trimmed them to the right lenght…Easy! But, the best part!! They can been washed, dried, flat ironed, and curled…up to I believe 400 degrees!!

After getting my family all ready, we headed out for my husbands special day. We decided to head to our local mall to the Barnes and Noble. As soon as we stepped into the first store…I kid you not with in 2 seconds we heard ” HEY!! How’d you do that to your hair??” I was a older woman, she wanted to touch them, know how I got them in my hair, where she could buy them. Over the next few hours random women, teens and tweens asked about my Bling Highlights. 100% of them wanted to know where to buy! The next day when I was out shopping a women asked were I got them done, because her daughter had just got them done and payed a ton of money and they didn’t stay. After telling her how Bling Highlights work she was ready to order!

It has now been 3 weeks, my Bling Highlights are still perfectly in place, and I am daily getting stopped multiple times…Grandmothers, young women, teens, tween and little girls…even men ask!

I’m sure you will be shocked to know that I will be placing a Bling Highlights order…I only have Gold. I think I am going to get: blue, purple, pink, and green…wait there are 43 colors…soooo ummm, I want 42 other colors!!

I think that Bling Highlight would be a great for ages 1 – 100! It would be really fun to have a girls Bling Highlight party, birthday party or just for fun!

Review – Belvedere Designs

Featuring:

More than a decade ago my husband and I didn’t have kids, and always said “We will NEVER have a Mini Van!” Well…hmmmm fast-forward 10 years and here we are with three kids and surprise surprise and a Mini Van!! When we first go our Town and Country, I kept thinking ‘there is something missing’ We wanted to make our Mini Van ours…but how??

Have you ever been at a stop light or pulled into a parking spot only to see the car in front of you has stick figure stickers of their family on the back window? I’ve always thought they were just so cute! It’s fun to see how families vary…Daddy, Mommy, and 1 kid, Daddy Mommy and 7 kids, 4 dogs, 2 cats, and a fish, or even Daddy, Mommy and 3 dogs:)

To tell you the truth we never got the stickers because although cute, the stick figure family is just not us. Along came Belvedere Designs
 
Belvedere Designs specializes in Custom Wall Letters, Vinyl Words & Wall Quotes, Family Stickers, Wall Art, Graphic Design and More!

I was given the opportunity to Review Belvedere Designs car decals! I choose the “FOOTPRINTS” The Stickers came of a vinyl backing to you can place them on your car straight and easily! I was VERY surprised how quickly the footprints were shipped and arrived.
 

The Sticker were all printed on one long sheet. Then gently rolled for shipping. When they arrived all I had to do was reactivate them (when you get your order you get step by step directions) Because they were print in order of size and on one sheet, it only took about 4 minutes to: Clean and Dry the window, Peel the backing off the stickers, place the stickers where we wanted and rub them on to insure they were sticking all the way, last peel the transfer paper off, and there they are beautiful, straight and perfect…Our family!

Belvedere Designs quality is amazing! The stickers are beautiful and sturdy. I noticed when I put them on the car that the are made out of a nice thick vinyl, not the thin stuff that I have seen that easily tears! The Footprints have only been on our window for a short time, but they have already had to with stand a lot! Hot beaming sun, snow and Rain almost daily. I am pleased that there is ZERO curling or peeling of the stickers. Absolutely NO bubbling either!!

90 Day Zumba Challenge: Week 1

So, my first week didn’t exactly turn out the way I had hoped, on Wednesday after my Zumba workout, my husband told me his vision was blurring and his head hurt VERY bad. Long story very short: Two hours later he was on his way to the ER with my mom, we were praying that he was not having a aneurysm, he couldn’t speak words, just jabber, and grabbing his head. It was horrible I was terrified!! Thank the LORD the CTscan was clear. What had happened was: He had a migraine that snapped out of control, his equilibrium was knock off balance, he suffer a horrible bout of vertigo…my poor guy! After 7 hours in the ER he was home!

My workouts were great! I had two 1hour session and a few 20 minute target zumba workouts, other than that I didn’t get to do so many other workout I had planned…but I was taking care of my Hubby, so I guess that’s ok!! I did lose 4.5lbs!! WHOO HOOO!! (because of everything we never had a chance to get a photo of me)

My Goals for This week:

2 – 1hour Zumba sessions

4 – 20 minute Zumba DVD workouts at home my family

1 – 4 mile hike

30 minute weights with my husband – we love working out together!

20 Abs workout

5+lb weigh loss
