Heart Of Haiti-Who's Your Favorite Woman?

Image
I was asked to write about a woman that has helped me in my life. I would like to tell you about one very special one right now~
She worked hard all her life for everything that she had.As she came from a poor family and didn't want her kids to go through what she did. She was the one that when you went to her house she had homemade cookies and never was too busy to listen to your problems. She would make a pot of chicken noodle soup if you were sick and deliver it too!
When she was diagnosed with lung cancer~she stayed optimistic and did everything that the doctors wanted her to do. I can still remember the first time holding her hand as she had chemo.We were scared together but of course neither one of us would admit that. She stayed strong though and made sure that we knew that she was going to fight this too.And she did with all that she had right to the end..
I was lucky enough to call this woman Mom.She lost her battle with cancer on April 2nd,2010. I want to thank her as she …

Did you know that Almonds are recognized by health professionals as a nutritious addition to a healthy diet? It's True~A serving of almonds provides an excellent source of vitamin E (a natural antioxidant), and a good source of protein and fiber. In fact, almonds are higher in protein and fiber than any other tree nut. Plus, they're naturally low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free.It doesn’t take much to get from whole, natural almonds to Silk Pure Almond almondmilk. Ea…

Hellmann's Build Your Perfect Sandwich Sweepstakes!

Image
Whether it's for breakfast, lunch or dinner, there's no denying it~America is a sandwich-loving nation! According to the new "Hellmann's State of the Sandwich" survey, a majority of American sandwich eaters (84%) believe that how a sandwich is made is just as important as the ingredients used to make it. Something else many of America's sandwich fans agree on: If there's a must-have sandwich ingredient, it's Hellmann's mayonnaise!  To help celebrate America's passionate preferences for building the perfect sandwich, Hellmann's and Best Foods are partnering with Chef Bobby Flay to show families how to make real, simple, delicious sandwiches, and to uncover unique and personal sandwich-making techniques.They want to know how you slice it, spread it, stack it or serve it ... Do you spread your Hellmann's Mayonnaise on one slice or both? Is the cheese on the top or in the center of the sandwich?
All you have to do is go to Facebook.com/h…

Flipflop Wines~Instantly Likeable and Easy Going~Flipflop Wines are always Delicious~Never Pretentious!
Flipflop wines~to each~their own! With Flipflop wines, we have embraced the movement toward individualistic expression, instead of manufacturing wines into some cookie-cutter style that’s all the rage. Our goal is to craft expressive, well-balanced wines that evoke just what the grapes inside intended, without being over-wrought or over-explained, and that can be enjoyed at any occasion.
Their collection includes  Chardonnay~Moscato~ Riesling~Pinot Grigio  and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. So no matter if you like red or white~FlipFlop has you covered.
I was sent 2 bottles of wine to review~I received a bottle of Riesling and a bottle of Pinot Grigio. I am usually not a white wine person but I knew that my daughter liked it so I brought them with me to Easter Dinner.The first one we tried was the Pinot Grigio~it was a light wine and the pear flavor gave it a perfect tas…

Pashminas have adorned and graced the most prestigous events and award ceremonies. The most elegant and recognized ladies of the world have worn pashminas at Oscar, Grammy, World Music Award Ceremonies, at design shows, royal events such as wedding and other significant celebrations.
 Pashmina~Can be worn as a shawl~wrap~or scarf. I was sent the Dark Teal with magenta and pink Pashmina shawl to review and it is stunning!  This wonderful crafted wrap, in beautiful dark teal (peacock) magenta and pink, is 27" x 68" in size with 3" black and ivory tassels on both ends of the wrap. I wore this with a cute purple top and just threw it over my shoulders and tied it in the front. It is so soft and has a "cuddly" feel to it. It is also very warm. The colors are amazing~I can't wait to show this off again on Sunday as I am going to dinner at my daughter's for Easter. And this time I am going to wear it like a scarf and tie it in the front.

Pump Gloves Review!

Image
The days of simply driving into full service gas stations and saying, “Fill’er up!” are, for the most part, a thing of the past. Pump Gloves restore a bit of luxury that's been lost by today's multitasking ladies.
I was recently sent Pump Gloves to review and let me tell you these gloves are the Bomb! They are so cute and look great. I don't know about you~But I despise getting all the germs on things that we touch every day. The Pump Gloves protect your hands and manicure from the gas, grease, grime, and germs that are never cleaned off gas station pumps and ATM machines. Pump Gloves are handy for work around the car, and can also help …

Magdalena Through Her Eyes - DVD Review & Giveaway 5/11

Image
Is God’s transforming power still available today? In Magdalena Through Her Eyes, Mary Magdalene recounts her own healing from demon possession and narrates the stories of other women who have been powerfully released from shame and fear. Mary traces the lives of a woman caught in the sinful act of adultery, a social outcast rejected because of her loose lifestyle, a recluse shunned in society for 12 years because of a despicable illness, and a widow mourning the loss of her only son, as they experience acceptance, healing, and forgiveness when coming into contact with Jesus. Spending three years following the Teacher and witnessing His miraculous works and His surprising compassion, Mary learns a whole new way of looking at life and people.
This is a great DVD as it made you look at life a bit different. As it is really a heart touching story.It would be great to watch with your girlfriends or great for ministry viewings at your church or in a Bible study. The full-length 82 …

Fresh Prince of Bel Air-The Complete 6th Season Review

Image
I was so excited to receive the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air DVD's to review. As no matter who you are you have to remember Will Smith in this show. I loved this show~and still like to watch the reruns as there are shown here late at nite. I still laugh when Will and Carlton get into their little disagreements.As it seems that no matter how much Carlton tries~he never is as cool as Will. This is a great set to watch over and over again~as it is good humor.Something that the whole family can enjoy!

It’s a rap: the final season! The Fresh Prince’s reign is over. Will Smith and the rest of the hilarious cast take their final bows with all 24 Season 6 Episodes on 3 Discs. A lot’s happened since Will’s life got flipped, turned upside down and he showed up at the Banks’s Bel-Air doorstep. And the final season keeps the fun rollin’ to the very end with hip comedy style, phat one-liners, a not-to-be-missed blooper episode, and guest stars that include William Shatner, B.B. King, Dick Cla…

Fiesta Roses Review & Giveaway 5/10*CLOSED*

Image
I have seen many different colors~shapes and sizes of Roses in my day.But nothing compares to the Roses that I received from Fiesta Roses.
I was sent Two Dozen Blue Roses~the most beautiful blue roses that you can imagine! I can't believe how vivid the color is. They arrived with a blue vase to match to display them in. They are just so full and make my whole house smell great. Everyone that sees them on my table table thinks that they are fake~as they look that perfect. I have had these for over a week now and they look as good as the day I received them!
The Process~ 
1.Fresh long stems roses are hand picked from their farms.

2. A trained horticulturist prepares the roses for "fiesta-ization".

3. The roses are placed in a unique substance, which is a combination of water and various dyes. The roses slowly absorb the dyed water the same way as they would naturally absorb water. Our unique process allows the horticulturist to pinpoint which petals receive each co…
