Choosing a Mother’s Day Gift? Choose Teleflora, she will love it!

Posted on: April 17th, 2014


Sending flowers is such a thoughtful gesture. Receiving flower is simply amazing! I received my first Teleflora arrangement last Thanksgiving. The bouquet was gorgeous and served as the centerpiece on our dining room table. I was so impressed with the bouquet that whenever the the need arises, I call Teleflora. My son recently stayed at a friends house during spring break and when he asked what he should bring to his friends parents, I suggested a Teleflora arrangement and he did exactly that. He chose the Country Basket Blooms (shown below) and the recipients couldn’t have been more delighted.

Country Basket Blooms Flowers

Whether it is a Birthday, anniversary,  get well or anytime really, receiving a Teleflora arrangement will brighten anyone’s day. The hardest part about ordering from Teleflora is deciding which arrangement to choose.  Teleflora’s Pink Bliss, Enchanted Garden, Lavender Grace and Butterfly Serenity to name a few (all shown at top) are all spectacular pieces.


Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I can’t think of anything I would rather receive than a Teleflora arrangement. I love the Everything Rosy Arrangement. This unique arrangement, presented in a vintage rose tin includes a bouquet of light pink and hot pink fresh baby roses and ivy. Also tucked into this gift are 3 Citrus Rose scented spa goodies including body wash, hand & body lotion and a deluxe candle. Why not give it a little something extra and add a mylar balloon, stuffed animal or chocolates.

This is a perfect gift to give someone special this Mother’s Day and you have 3 sizes to chose from. All Teleflora arrangements are hand-arranged and delivered by a Teleflorist.

Visit and order your Teleflora arrangement today! Yes, they do have same day delivery and they have a live chat feature just in case you have any questions about your order.

Mother’s Day will be here soon so order your special Teleflora arrangement today.


Look Better Than Ever in the Shower with Cassani’s Fogless Mirror

Posted on: April 14th, 2014


Product Pictures always looks nice on the box but do the products work. I can tell you with certainty that Cassani’s Fogless Mirror works to perfection. We have one hanging in our shower right now and my husband  gave it a big thumb up. Cassani has improved their fogless mirror and it has a nice modern oval design. The new oval design gives the mirror added width and height to match the shape of your face including your  neckline.

The fogless mirror has a hole punch on the top and we have ours hanging on the hook at the bottom of our shower caddy.  It’s the perfect spot because all of our shaving supplies are stored there and you can check yourself out at a glance anytime you are in the shower. You can also lift the mirror right off the hook and change the location of the mirror at any time. The Cassani Fogless Mirror allows you  to shave and you can actually see yourself. Cassani’s Fogless mirror also includes two stainless steel adhesive wall mounts which will give you other hanging options. You can attach the mirror and razor on the wall mounts. If you are not completely satisfied, there is a  ”Hassle-Free 100% MoneyBack Guarantee if you are not fully satisfied.” Cassani Fogless Mirror is definitely a “must-have” in the shower.



Eliminate Oily Skin with BIOELEMENTS Skincare

Posted on: April 14th, 2014

I am a big fan of Bioelements. They have skincare products that meet everyone’s needs and skin types. When I received my Bioelements, the products chosen were based on recommendations from the Bioelements website It is very easy to do, and after answering some basic skincare questions, I chose products that were recommended for my skin type. This feature takes the guess work out of deciding what products works best for your skin type. My daughters have a completely different skin type then I do and I suggested Bioelements because they have a few products I wanted them to try that are recommended for their skin type which is oily skin.



  • Both of my daughters had great results with Bioelements Beyond Hydration and Bioelements Restorative Clay. These two products are highly recommended for oily skin. Bioelements Beyond Hydration is a clear gel and acts as a moisturizer while reducing the oils on your skin. Beyond Hydration is designed specifically to prevent moisture loss and binds needed moisture to the surface of your skin. It leaves your skin refreshed and soft. Beyond Hydration can be used both day or night and has key ingredients like Pro Vitamin B5 for hydrating and Phospholipids for water binding. Other ingredients include Peppermint to refresh, Rosemary which energizes, Sage is the astringent and Thyme calms the skin. Beyond Hydration applies easily and your skin will feel dry which is a fabulous feeling.

Restorative Clay

The girls are also using Bioelements Restorative Clay. I actually used this myself and I can honestly say, my skin felt fantastic afterwards and I don’t have oily skin. My girls also agreed that our skin felt smooth and dry . Restorative Clay is formulated for combination Oily to very Oily skin and it only takes 10 minutes onceor twice  a week for healthy, dry and soft skin. Simply apply the clay to your entire neck and face and leave the clay on for ten minutes. According to Bioelements, the clay “Visibly improves the look of pores. Its natural clay base works like a vacuum to absorb excess oil and dirt, while plant extracts smooth skin’s texture and improve hydration. Skin looks fresh, healthy and bright.”  The Key ingredient in Restorative Clay is Kaolin which Absorbs Oil. My daughters had great results with Restorative Clay and they love how their skin feels.

Visit Bioelements, and learn what your skin type is and try some of their products. You won’t be disappointed.

A little squeeze…A little Stur… A refreshing drink

Posted on: April 7th, 2014


All it takes is one squeeze of Stur to transform 8 ounces of water into a fruity, healthy and refreshing drink. Stur is an all natural Stevia liquid water enhancer. It is sugar free, calorie free and contains 7 essential vitamins including 100% vitain C and absolutely NO artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors. What’s not to love about it?

We all know how important it is to drink water every day. I try to get my eight glasses of water in each day but let’s face it, drinking plain water can become boring and for me,  sometimes hard to swallow. Flavored water definitely helps the water go down so much easier. With 7 delicious flavors to choose from like PomeCranberry, Strawberry, Lemonade, Orange Mango, Lemon Tea and  Mint Cucumber, you won’t want to drink you water without a little squeeze of Stur

Each 1.4 oz. bottle makes up to 18 drinks. The Stur bottle has a unique slow dispensing top to avoid leaking and spilling.  For each serving, you have to squeeze the bottle up to 10 seconds.

Stur is a small family-run company, passionate about better health. Learn more about Stur’s story at


Skin So Soft with Jojoba Oil is Better Than Ever

Posted on: March 30th, 2014


I remember when I was young, one of my mother’s favorite bath products was Avon’s Skin So Soft Bath Oil. The two things I remember the most was the fabulous fragrance and her telling me to only use 1 or 2 capfulls in the bath water. Fast forward 40 years later and Skin So Soft is still one of her favorite bath products. Skin so Soft products have come a long way since it was introduced in the early 60′s. Did you know that Skin So Soft is the most recognized product in Avon’s history?

When I asked my mom if she still uses Skin So Soft, her response was “Don’t buy me any, I already have two bottles and, by the way, it works great for keeping the mosquitoes away”. I can’t argue with her there, I know many people who use Skin So Soft, whether it be the oil, lotion or Bug Guard, they swear by it. I do admit, I already own my own stash of Skin So Soft Bug Guard but I wanted to try the bath oil to see if it had the same great smell and if it still made my skin feel soft and silky after a bath. I can Assure you, the fragrance is still fantastic and the bath oil did a remarkable job making my skin feel, well, so soft!

Not only is Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil as I remembered it, it is now better than ever. The Skin So Soft Collection is new and improved and with the added replenishing and softening oils, Skin So Soft is more luxurious than ever. Skin So Soft Original Collection is now formulated with Jojoba Oil which works to condition your skin throughout the day. Skin So Soft has 7 products in the Original Collection:

Shower Gel, Gelled Body Oil, Body Lotion, Bath Oil Spray, Creamy Body Wash, and 2 sizes of the Bath Oil.

You can find the entire Skin So Soft Collection at

Avvan also has a remarkable history and you can read more about it here:
