Sears Christmas Shop Review

I was so excited to have received a gift card from to start off my holiday decorating shopping. I found some Christmas decorating ideas in the Sears Christmas shop. For example I use my Sears gift card that I received from to purchase holiday ribbon. And to my surprise there were so many items to choose from at the Sears Christmas Shop. I especially love the variety holiday ribbon that was available for me to choose from. I definitely do recommend shopping at Sears Christmas shop for all of your holiday decorating needs.


I also signed up for the Shop-Your-Way rewards program that allows me to earn 10 points for every $1 that I spend. And I can redeem as many of my points as I want on purchases at any time. Love that idea!

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Facial Care Review

I receive a free sample from And I am loving the moisturizing effect using the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration facial products.

I have extremely dry skin and I am 50+ years of age. After about 3 weeks of using the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration facial care system I am seeing visible results in the smoothing of my skin texture. Also I am noticing that the deepening of the creases in my wrinkles are diminishing. And my skin is much softer and I am not experiencing the flaking from results of dry skin. The Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration facial care is non-greasy or oily and it penetrates into the skin without leaving a greasy appearance. My skin feels dewy and it looks more youthful.
I definitely do recommend the Burt's Bees Intense Hydration facial products to those who experience dry skin.

Covergirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 liquid foundation

I received a free sample from to try and to give my honest feedback on what I thought about the product. Well, I really liked it. I think that it works very well and it gave me a natural even coverage without looking made up. It was not oily or shiny. It goes on smooth and it stays fresh looking throughout the day. It didn't crease between lines. In my opinion it's a very nice quality makeup and it is pretty reasonably price. I used shade number 165 and it matched my skin tone pretty well. It didn't leave my skin dry because it has Olay serum moisturizer to prevent dryness. I like this product and will continue to use it in the future. I would recommend Covergirl Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 liquid foundation.

Smooth N Shine Polishing Keratin Power Simi-Permanent Hair Tamer

I received a free sample of Smooth N Shine Polishing Keratin Power Simi-Permanent Hair Tamer from  I am so glad that I tried this product that I recently purchased another to continue the wonderful results that I received from my first treatment.  This is my second treatment application of Smooth N Shine after six weeks and I am really loving this product.  My hair is much more manageable.  For example my hair is a lot easier to comb.  I get less breakage because my curl coils are looser.  And my hair is so shiny and extremely smooth.  My natural curls are more pronounced and it looks great when I’m wearing my hair natural.  And after using Smooth N Shine Polishing Keratin Power Simi-Permanent Hair Tamer my hair is easier to straighten and it stays straight longer without reverting back to its natural state.  I don’t get the frizzy on bad hair days.  Smooth and shine has become my best friend.

The best thing about the cookie is that it is a good size. It looks like it was made from my kitchen. They are made with whole grain Quaker oats. The Quakers soft bake oatmeal cookie had a lot of flavor and it tastes like it was home made. The flavor that I tried was Raisins Natural Flavor.

Smooth and Shine Keratin Semi-Permanent Hair Tamer

My hair is natural however I do straighten it with a flat iron to make it easier to manage. I’ve been looking for something for a long time that would make my hair easier to manage while I wear my natural hair. I did have some breakage when combing out my hair in its natural state that’s why I flat iron my hair to minimize the stress that I would apply when styling my hair. I was so excited when I learned about this product that I decided to try it. The applying process is a little tedious. For example, washing the hair before applying the treatment was OK. This process helps to remove all previously applied products such as oil and styling creams to allow the treatment to bond to the hair shaft. Then after applying the product fully and allowing it set for the recommended amount of time while smelling the not so pleasant fragrance was the most difficult part for me to deal with. Then follow by rinsing, blow drying and flat ironing took a little more time than I anticipated. However, it was well worth it because I love the results I received so I definitely plan to continue using this product. Now I am extremely pleased with the results that I received after applying my new Smooth and Shine Keratin treatment that I received as a free sample from My hair is much softer and smoother which makes it much easier to manage while it is in its natural state. My hair has more body and flounce and it appears thicker and stronger. After applying the smooth and shine Keratin treatment to my hair I have experienced much less breakage and less flyaways. My curls are much more defined. I do plan to continue using the Smooth and Shine Keratin treatment in my hair every 6 to 8 weeks as recommended to improve the conditions of my hair. I definitely do recommend this product for softer smoother and much more manageable natural curls.

Ballpark Flamed Grilled Beef Patties are delicious.

I received a free sample of Ballpark Flamed grilled beef patties from and they are absolutely delicious. I love that they are conveniently pre-cooked and they are seasoned just right with a smoke house flavor. They tastes just like they have been freshly grilled. They cook up quickly and they are ready within minutes. I prepare them on my indoor tabletop grill as well as my outdoor barbecue grill. And they always turned out great. I especially love that they do not shrink when preparing them. They fit perfectly on a bun with plenty of beef to fit over the entire bun. Great flavor and extremely juicy. I definitely do recommend the Ballpark Flame Grilled beef patties. Since I’ve tried these delicious patties I’d been purchasing them regularly. I’ve also served them during a backyard barbecue and received a lot of compliments. They are must haves.

Milk & Truffle Ghirardelli Squares review

I received a free sample of Milk & Truffle Ghirardelli
Squares from to sample and give my honest opinion about what I thought
about the product. I love this type of
try and tell program that She Speaks offer because it allows me to try the
product and then tell my experience.
I have tried other Ghirardelli Squares products before and I
simply love them. After trying this
particular flavor I discovered that this particular flavor is one of my
favorite Ghirardelli products. I love
the simple rich creamy silky texture of the Milk & Truffle Ghirardelli
Squares. The creamy rich chocolate melts
in your mouth. It is also smooth, sweet
and oh so silky. In addition, I also
love that the packaging comes in a stay fresh foil that allows for easy storing
and that each square is individually wrapped. Love this product and I definitely do
recommend it because of the quality of chocolate flavor and stay fresh wrapping. I also love the individual wrap packaging
because it makes portion control and calorie counting dieting easier to follow
in my case. I can enjoy a quality delicious
piece of chocolate without feeling deprived.

Tide Cold Water laundry detergent review

As a member of I receive a free sample of Tide
cold water fresh scent laundry detergent to use and give my honest opinion and
experiences of how it worked for me. And I will also receive a $50.00 gift card
to use at the P.&G. Online e-store.

So here it is, as a daily coffee drinker and sometime a little clumsy, I spilled coffee on one of my favorite T-shirts and I was so upset because I thought that I would never be able to get the coffee stain out of my shirt.
I was a little skeptical as to washing my whites and bright
colors in cold water because I wasn’t sure if cold water would be tough enough
to break up hard to remove coffee stain. I use the Tide cold water laundry
detergent on my T-shirt by pouring a little of the detergent directly onto the
stain and letting it sit for about a half an hour and then I dropped it into my
washing machine on the cold water setting.

And I am extremely please to tell you that the Tide cold
water laundry detergent removed all of the tough and stubborn stain of coffee. Tide cold water laundry detergent made a believer out of me. Tide cold water laundry detergent will also give me the opportunity to save money by using cold water on all of my laundry. I love it! And will continue using Tide cold water laundry detergent on all of my laundry.
