DOCUMENTARY FIND: FORKS OVER KNIVES

21 Nov

FORKS OVER KNIVES is a documentary I recently came across, while trying to find better ways of getting protein, because I do eat meat, but not enough to be considered “enough protein” … or so I THOUGHT until I watched this documentary. Growing up in America as apart of a generation who didn’t know any better, I never even considered that at one point live stock used to be scarce and only what rich people ate; which left the poor and middle classes to be on a diet of mostly nuts, fruit and vegetables and NOT the newly ordained”congress” vegetable known as Pizza; but you get my point.

DOCUMENTARY FIND: KING CORN starring Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis

17 Nov

King Corn starring Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis is a real eye opener as to why we as a nation seem to be getting bigger and sicker… where and what Corn Syrup is and how processed corn is everywhere!:

“King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized cr…op that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat-and how we farm ~ Written by King Corn”

Travel! Best Family Vacation Choice!

5 Aug

A few years ago, I would go and plan my vacation without a hitch, I didn’t care about anything other then “don’t forget the suntan lotion!” ah the good ol’ days! OK I AM DONE DREAMING >>Fast forward to now… “Okay we have the diapers, baby cream, toys, snacks, oh yea the baby!” – a lot has changed. So now when I plan a vacation I tend to take a lot more into consideration; like, is this spot kid friendly? do they have supplies for kids in cause my wipes run out, do they have activities for kids? much more complicated then just worrying about suntan lotion. I guess every parent goes thru the pain and suffering of having to cross of their favorite vacation spot because now… that place – doesn’t have anything for a child to do.

I’m come to the conclusion that by far a Continue reading

Review! The Most Comfortable Sandal; EVER!

11 Jul

FitFlops Women's Hyker Sandal

FitFlops Women's Hyker Sandal

The summer is here and when I walk; I want to feel like I am floating; OK maybe that’s an exaggeration – but I want to feel comfortable. Everyone has different levels of comfort, like   sometimes in the heat your feet swell, you get blisters, cuts and etc – so when looking for a sandal you may want something that you can adjust on the go, have soft material, stretches, ease of wearing and can take a beating. For the most part you can not go wrong with a Flip Flop and I’m going to almost guarantee it’s apart of your shoe collection… if not by the dozen. I love the ease of slipping right in and getting out the door, BUT I was getting ready for a trip to Six Flags and it hit me: 

I don’t really feel like taking off my flip flops and sitting on them during the rides or wearing them and risk them flying off either… SO, what is a girl to do?

Reviews! The Perfect Bra for the Busty Girl

8 Jul

The Perfect Bra for the Busty Girl

Oh My Gorgeous Bridget Lace Cami Underwire Bra. Style: 500001779

Do you have a large cup size? can you NEVER find a V-neck, Halter or any nice top to wear because no matter what you put on, the neckline/cut goes way too low cause of the weight of your chest? well join the club! From personal experience V-Necks/Halter tops always look better on girls/women with bigger busts, but when you put one on… people stare you down and think “omg, can’t you cover those up!” ~Women or “DAMN GIRL! I wanna…” ~Men or “I want milk!” ~Baby … you get my point! — nice shirts on us, become way too revealing – hey I guess it’s just gravity. Well, I got sick and tired of going thru my closet and having to put away all of my favorite tops and just wear t-shirts – only because I wanted to go to a show, not be the star of one. So after searching online for a while, I came across many ‘under shirt slips/covers/over the bra tubes’ but I didn’t want to pile on the clothes; because after all, I don’t want to make my self look even larger then I already am. As I continued to search I came across

Travel Review! Romantic Getaway – Cove Pocono Palace

28 Jun

$10.00 portrait by the set up candle lit dinner.

My husband and I went to Caesars Pocono Palace (now with a new title and owner LINK HERE) for his 26th Birthday weekend in Feb 2009, we left the baby with my parents and were on our way! The trip wasn’t long from New York City, about 1hr and 30 mins by car. Once we pulled into the drive way, we got a bit scared… it looked like it was in the middle of a forest in nowhere land, then once we actually pulled into the main parking area the resort/hotel look big, nice and well kept. Inside the main building it was very well kept and pretty, the staff was pleasant as well. Continue reading

27 Jun

As an avid online shopper, I am constantly looking for some sort of coupon or deal to use at check out. I mean HEY if I can get it a little cheaper or with free shipping; WHY NOT? so in my years of [shopping] searching I have come across many coupon websites, but I only came back to a certain few.

My top three choices allow you to search and use the coupons without registering; but of course they offer you more perks if you do – these are the only ones I found without any gimmicks. I hope you find them easy to use as well, enjoy! Continue reading

Review! The Perfect Swimsuit for the Busty Girl

8 Jun

 Panache: Seychelles Halter Style One-Piece Swimsuit

Panache: Seychelles Halter Style One-Piece Swimsuit ($92.00) on barenecessities.com

When busty girls go to the beach… well aside from giving horn-balls eye candy – they don’t want to just sit and look at the water; usually not. Sometimes though, it’s literally too painful to go swimming. We know that the minute we dive in the water is going to make our swimsuits become a total FAIL. I say that because I know from experience, a wet suit makes our heavy top, heavier causing the straps to cut into out neck/shoulders like a knife cutting through bones. Not to mention it brings the whole cleavage down, making us look like we are sagging too– Not very comfortable or attractive. Oh and did I mention indecent exposure too? when the suit drops, it causes the V line to open more, so out ‘girls’ are out on full display. (Guys may like it, but 95% of us do not) Continue reading

Review: Do Not Buy, From Buy.com

7 Jun

I’m an avid online shopper; I prefer it to shopping off line, because well there are no lines! It’s quick, easy and usually pretty reliable. I have never had any problems with any online retailers! I still don’t have a problem with any of them; but one, BUY.COM. I’ve shopped on their website before, but usually for simple merchandise like DVD’s and small gifts, usually nothing over $50.00 at a time and usually the product arrives and I don’t have any issues.

Cyber Monday came about and I received an intriguing e-mail from buy.com, claiming they are having major sales on electronics! Usually I ignore these e-mails but I had my fingers crossed that I would see a good mp3 player on that list because about two weeks ago mine stopped working after a good 3 years – Low and behold!!! I see the exact MP3 player I wanted to purchase from Best Buy for $250.00, the Creative Zen: M series. Buy.com was offering a refurbished Creative Zen: M series, 30GB MP3 player for $99.00! I immediately decided I had to get it, before it sells out. Continue reading
