Opalite Necklace ~ Wire Wrapped Pendant by DesignsbyNatureGems


This stunning piece by DesignsbyNatureGems quickly became a favorite of mine.  It's beautiful and goes with any outfit which makes it really easy to wear.  Elegantly handcrafted with silver wire wraps that encase a lovely faceted Opalite that can fluctuate between different pastel colors depending on how the light hits it.  
Opalite is known to be ideal for meditation and can help improve communication on all levels, especially the spiritual level.  Opalite is also used as a healing crystal.  It can help with fatigue, mood swings and some say it can purify the blood and kidneys.  Additionally, it's connected to the crown chakra and is believed to induce vision and psychic abilities.
This necklace would make a great gift idea for someone or even better, a gift for yourself!    
DesignsbyNatureGems has an impressive inventory of wonderful pieces to choose from.  If Opalite isn't your thing Laura, the artist, uses many other various types of gems and stones and even does custom orders!  Her prices are very reasonable and you definitely need to check out her charming shop over on Etsy....


This Opalite Necklace ~ Wire Wrapped Pendant retails for $23.51

Organic Self Tanning Oil by Golden Star Beauty


Self tanners have come a really long way.  Even so, I'm pretty picky about which ones I use.  They have to look natural, fade gradually and evenly and not have that annoying smell that a lot of self tanners have AND contain quality ingredients.  I've only found a couple that meet my requirements and this Organic Self Tanning Oil by Golden Star Beauty is one of them.
This cruelty free self tanner is made with Organic ingredients like Jojoba oil, Avocado Oil, Macadamia Oil, Calendula and Meadowsweet Extracts.  It's also free of nasty chemicals, formaldehyde and parabens.  Plus, it's also cruelty free!
Not only does it give your skin a healthy natural looking tan but it also doubles as a moisturizer thanks to all the hydrating ingredients and added Hyaluronic Acid.  No tanning mitt needed!  This tanning oil will immediately soak into skin leaving it feeling soft and silky.  I like to apply it after I shower and before bed.  While in the shower I make sure to exfoliate using a nice body scrub like the Coconut Milk Body Scrub you see below, to help me achieve the most even, natural looking tan possible.  Since I apply before bed I'm not exactly sure how long the color takes to develop but I'm assuming it's a couple hours until it reaches full color.  There is no streaking, no staining of clothes or sheets you just have a beautiful tanned glow!

 Coconut Milk Body Scrub by Majestic Pure & Organic Self Tanning Oil by Golden Star Beauty  
If you are in the market for a new, quality self tanner then I highly recommend this one!  I promise, you won't be disappointed.  Plus, you can find it over on Amazon.com...

100% Pure Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein by Premium Keto



I've been using Collagen for a couple of years now and I really believe that it makes a difference for me in several ways.  First and foremost, when use use Collagen on a regular basis I notice a remarkable difference in my skin, hair and nails and that is the primary reason I use it.  However, I also notice that I seem to have a lot more energy and my body doesn't feel as stiff and sore as I usually do.
This 100% Pure Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein by Premium Keto is an excellent quality Collagen and a really easy way to get your body the extra Collagen that it desperately needs.  Plus, it's a Non-GMO and Paleo Friendly option.  I like to use mix it in with my smoothies in the morning but since it's unflavored you can really mix it into anything.  It makes a great addition to homemade soups and sauces too!
Some of the other benefits you can experience from taking Collagen is detoxification, a healthier immune system & liver function, metabolism boost, a reduction in joint pain and degeneration and can also help reduce cellulite.
I also recommend that you take Vitamin C on a regular basis.  Collagen and Vitamin C have a interdependent relationship.  Collagen production can be disrupted without the Vitamin C so the two really go hand in hand and should be taken together.
You can find this 100% Pure Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein by Premium Keto over on Amazon.com and it retails for $19.99 for 20oz.

Mercedes Benz Rose a Luxury Fragrance by FragranceMarket


I had no idea that Mercedea Benz made fragrances?!  This one is the Mercedes Benz Rose and it's lovely.
I'm not really a big floral person so I was a bit worried when I ordered this from fragrancemarket.us that it would be too overpowering.  However and thankfully, the website is very descriptive and listed Lemon, Black Currant as Top Notes, Elemi Shades, Rosewood as Middle Notes and Amber, Cedar, Rosewood, and White Musk as the Base Notes so I felt really comfortable placing my order.
I was amazed at how user friendly the website is.  I just typed "Rose" into the search box and up came all the products that they carry that contain Rose, which is surprisingly a lot!  Plus, they have a wide selection of men's fragrances as well.  Their prices are exactly what I would expect when purchasing a luxury brand fragrance but they also had a coupon code to help me save some cash and that's always a good thing!
Mercedes Benz Rose might just be my new signature scent!  What comes to mind when I think of this fragrance is luxury, sophisticated, fun and flirty.  Which could probably be used to describe one of their cars too!!  It's light and I think it blends nicely with my body chemistry which is always a bonus when it comes to picking a scent.
I am also happy that I choose to order through fragrancemarket.us.  I know that I am getting a genuine, 100% original product and they even guarantee it.  I've seen this Mercedes Benz Rose on places like Amazon and even in Walmart but I would never take the chance and buy this type of fragrance from anyplace other than a reputable company like fragrancemarket.us.
Have you been wanting to upgrade your signature scent?  Make sure you check out fragrancemarket.us for all your luxury brand needs and save $10.00 off any order $65.00 or over just by using the coupon code 10OFFBEST.

SolaMetixs - Anti-Aging Hydrating Cream by Palm Beach Pure


If you follow my blog then you probably know how picky I am about what I put on my face.  Being 43 with oily and blemish prone means I can't just slather on any ol' face cream that comes my way.  If it's too think in consistency then I usually just use it around my eyes, neck and decollete when I am testing it out.  Otherwise, my face just becomes a greasy mess.
So, when I come across an anti-aging cream that's lightweight, absorbs quickly, repairs fine lines and wrinkles, helps even out skin tone and smooths skin texture I get a little excited!  This SolaMetixs Anti-Aging Hydrating Cream by Palm Beach Pure is one of those creams and I'm in love.
Developed with advanced hydration technology and potent anti-aging ingredients this leaves my skin feeling plump and hydrated while it softens my fines lines as well as feeling really refreshed.  It wears really well under makeup so you could skip a primer if you have a more normal skin type.  You can use this as part of your morning and evening skincare routines but I have only been using it in my morning routine, tying to make it last!  I've only been using this a few weeks so I haven't seen any dramatic difference in the areas where I have discoloration but I would use this moisturizer even if it didn't help with those issues.
Overall, this is a fantastic anti-aging moisturizer that I would recommend for all skin types!  However, it is a little pricey at $89.00 for 30ml.  If you can fit it into your budget then this is a MUST HAVE!


Go to palmbeachpure.com for all the details and ingredient list on this SolaMetixs - Anti-Aging Hydrating Cream!

Firming Body Contour Cream by Nerium



This is just what you need to help you get tight and toned for summer!  A little Firming Body Contour Cream by Nerium and some self tanner and you will be good to go!
I've been using this Firming Body Contour Cream for a couple weeks now and I'm starting to see a difference.  The skin on my thighs is looking and feeling more toned and firm and I love it.  Sometimes working out and eating right just isn't enough so it's nice to have a little help to achieve your desired look.  I've heard other people rave about this and how well it works so I'm anxious to see if I the same impressive results that I've heard about.
Formulated with the Nerium exclusive NAE-8 extract, Green Tea, Peptide Matrix, Shea & Cocoa Butters among other skin loving ingredients that work harmoniously to tighten, smooth, firm and tone the skin.

Independently conducted clinical trials show impressive results:
92% of participants reported positive improvements on their thighs.
92% of participants reported an increase in skin hydration.
83% of participants reported an improvement in the appearance of skin smoothness and cellulite.

All you need is a quarter-sized amount of the product and simply massage into desired area in a circular motion for a minimum of 20 seconds or until product is full absorbed into the skin.  For best results use as part of your morning and evening skincare routines.  The Firming Body Contour Cream by Nerium can be used on thighs, stomach. love handles, upper arms or anywhere else you would like more firm, toned skin!

Hello Cutie Charcoal Exfoliating Cleanser by Glam Essentials



I love Charcoal Cleansers.  In fact I love using Charcoal in many ways, not just to clean my face.  I like to take Charcoal supplements if I am planning on having a few cocktails (it really helps abate a hangover) and I use it to clean, whiten and brighten my teeth as well.  So, it only makes sense that I use it on my skin too.
This Hello Cutie Charcoal Exfoliating Cleanser by Glam Essentials is a gentle but impressive Charcoal cleanser.  It contains Activated Charcoal, Jojoba Beads, Green Tea Pomegranate Extract and Hyaluronic Acid which work harmoniously to clean, detoxify and exfoliate while leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.
I think all skin types would benefit from this cleanser.  It would help and and clear up acne prone skin and would help exfoliate, soften and smooth all other types!


You can go to glamessentials.com for more detailed information on this Hello Cutie Charcoal Exfoliating Cleanser and take a look at their products while your there.  I actually have my eye on their Hello Cutie Makeup Setting Spray!

BR Naturals - Fresh, Natural & Handmade products that you should be adding to your collection +30% now through May 5th with Coupon Code!


BR Naturals is a totally new brand to me and they were nice enough to send me a few of their lovely products.  I am trying to go "all natural" as much as possible.  Not just with my skincare and hair care but with household products as well.  BR Naturals offers a nice mixture of body care products, essential oils, carrier oils and even things like Avocado Oil and Olive Oil.
Based out of Canada their products are all natural, handmade and you can really tell that a lot of love and care goes into their products.
While I have really enjoyed everything they sent me my favorite items are the Lemongrass Lotion Bar, Coconut Lip Balm and their Natural Soaps.  They are super amazing and something that I will be re-purchasing.


This Lemongrass Lotion Bar smells wonderful, makes my skin feel soft and hydrated while doubling as an insect repellent.  This will be my go-to lotion this spring & summer.  Not only will my skin feel nice and soft but the Lemongrass Oil will keep the bugs away.  I love to hike and that means ticks & mosquito's where I live.  It comes in a nice, convenient tin which is perfect to just throw it in my backpack!  LOVE!
I also highly recommend using this after shaving and right after you get of of the shower or bath.  I like to put on a fairly thick layer right before bed as well.
Made with all natural Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Mango Butter, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Lemongrass Oil and Vitamin E.


Little known fact...I'm a bit of a Lip Balm junkie.  It's ridiculous how many things of Lip Balm I have but I use them all and I am always on the hunt for something new.  This Coconut Lip Balm became a fast favorite.  
It smells just like you would want a Coconut Lip Balm to smell like...a tropical vacation!  Made with all natural Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Argan Oil, Babassu, Vitamin E and Coconut Extract among other ingredients it nourishes my dry lips for hours and it even tastes good!



This is a great precursor to the Lemongrass Lotion Bar!  This Lemongrass Body Wash is a simply body wash that smells amazing and is made with all natural Olive, Avocado, Coconut, Palm Kernel Oil, and Apricot Kernel Oil.  It cleans very effectively without stripping and dehydrating the skin.  Plus, the Lemongrass scent is something the whole family will enjoy.




What's not to love about Lavender Oil?  This is a excellent quality Lavender Oil that smells amazing.  Their are literally dozens of uses for Lavender Oil and I use mine in several different ways.
I love putting a few drops in my diffuser, especially in the evening.  I also like to add a few drops to my bath water to help soothe away the stress of the day.  I even apply it to my temples when I feel a headache coming on and it works like a charm.  However, I mostly use it to scent my wool dryer balls for my laundry.  I don't use fabric softener because it's toxic so I use wool dryer balls instead and you can add a few drops of essential oil to give your laundry a nice, fresh scent just like fabric softener but without all the toxic chemicals!
Retails for $11.99 for 1.7oz.



I love a a good all natural soap.  There is just something about the way it smells and the way it leaves your skin feeling soft and clean.  I also prefer to use a bar of soap for shaving and the Lavender Flowers Soap Bar and their Peppermint Leaf Soap Bar are both exfoliating soaps which helps exfoliate dead skin cells and will leave it feeling soft and smooth.  
I just LOVE a good exfoliating soap and these are amazing!  They not only smell amazing but you can feel the exfoliating bits in the soap gently exfoliating your skin, almost like a light massage.  I love that feeling!
Their soaps are made with premium ingredients like Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Palm Oil, Canola Oil, Castor Oil, Sunflower Oil and Hempseed Oil which is what makes them so luxurious and great for the skin.  If you love the look, feel and smell of a natural soap then you will love these!

Overall, I loved every product I've tried from BR Naturals, enough that I will repurchase them when my current supply runs out!  BR Naturals is definitely worth checking out so head over to brnaturals.com for more detailed information on these products or to see what else they have!  Plus, get 30% off EVERYTHING now through May 5th when you use code MOMSDAY30 at checkout!
