Mommy in Ga:
So I know i have talked a little bit about my weight loss journey ( also known as dear Jesus I just want a candy bar and pizza but then my jeans won't fit button😉) It is a daily struggle to eat the right things and to exercise regularly and sometimes i fail but this is where my new Ozeri Bathroom scale will come in handy!!


The scale is very easy to set your own personal profile (this way all the people in your house, work, or gym can use it too), another cool feature that comes in handy in my house is the tare for the infant!!! I can hold my toddler and use the tare and it tells me how much he weighs!! The tare button also works to weigh your luggage or pet while holding them.

Ok not that many people have a habit to take pics of weight but I do as it helps motivate me to do better if I am sending my weight to a family member (thanks mommy in Pa for the text support😉😆) anyway this scale is super stylish and cute black with the tempered glass (super strong, like 4x stronger than reg. glass)  anyway the glass, do NOT take your weight pic naked or it WILL reflect🖒😉😂

The easy access to knowing how much:
 bone mass
Water weight
Fat mass
And
Muscle
Is also very cool....I would be my ideal weight if I didn't have like bones and stuff😂
In all seriousness this will help me keep track of my weight loss, whether or not I am retaining too much water and my fat index! Super excited to use this tool to help me get to and stay at my ideal weight for a healthy life!!

Ozeri ozk1 elite chef ceramic 3 piece knife set in bkack

disclaimer:  I received the product below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Ozeri OZK1 Elite Chef Ceramic Knives
 


Most metal knives leach metal ions from long exposure to certain fat acids or rust when exposed to water for long periods of time, your Ozeri Elite Chef knives will not do those things.

These Ozeri knives weigh about half as much as a metal knife which will help you with repetitive cutting or long exposure to cutting.

This particular set includes 3 Elite chef knives made of 100% ceramic that lets you cut boneless meats,fruits and vegetables with no problem.

Using the purest ceramics creates a blade in close proximity of the hardness of diamonds which insures your knives to stay sharp 10x longer.







Mommy in Ga:
Here we go, I am going to talk about how big my family is again (sorry!!!) But, with so many kids, it takes a lot to prep to meal plan..... make your list, clip your coupons, get your groceries, put said groceries away and now since your not already tired and haven't done all of that plus clean, listen and tend to frustrated kids and do laundry now it is time to prep and cook said meal.....   ugh!!!

Ha! Yall thought i forgot where I was going with that...nope! I am about to tell yall about a great set of knives....the Ozeri Elite Chef Ceramic 3 piece (black) Knife set😉

All the info above is great and true....I wield these knives much easier than my metal ones. They are lighter and cut better than most knives i've laid my hands on.....I cut up a whole pork tenderloin no problem last night. My hand didn't cramp, or get tired, or even uncomfortable in the handle of the knife like it usually does...it was fantastic!! I cut through that pork loin like i was cutting butter that had set on the counter all day😂

Bonus if I don't have to sharpen or replace them anytime soon....I have only had mine about two weeks and they still seem brand new, this should be the case for awhile from what i understand!!

I am going to end my review with I am loving my new kitchen helper who makes slicing and dicing easier🖒

Also they come in a super cute box to keep them in ,but I am hoping to get the actual knife stand for them soon!!

Ozeri Touch II 18 lbs Digital Kitchen Scale with Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection

disclaimer:  We received the product below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.

Ozeri Touch II 18 lbs Digital Kitchen Scale with Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection



  When managing your weight the bathroom scale isn't the only scale that becomes an important part of your healthy routine.  Kitchen scales are equally, if not more, important.  Making sure you are measuring your servings correctly can sometimes be a guessing game but not any longer with the Ozeri Touch II 18 lbs Digital Kitchen Scale with Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection.  

  Featuring an easy to read large blue LCD screen and two touch sensitive buttons to switch between weight measurements (lb/ounces,g,fl.oz. and ml ) and tare function (easily subtract the weight of a container) this scale keeps it simple but does what you need it to.  

  It also features Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection which helps prevent the growth of bacteria.  The coating is added during manufacturing and lasts the lifetime of the scale.  It will prevent stains, odors, and product deterioration caused by bacteria.  To clean the scale just wipe it down with a damp, soapy cloth, be sure not to get too wet as moisture can damage your scale.

  Weighing things up to 18 lbs. should make this the perfect scale for anything you would need to weigh in the kitchen.  And it even comes with the two lithium batteries included.  Unit will automatically turn itself off after two minutes of inactivity to preserve battery life. 

Mommy in GA: This is fantastic! I have started trying to diet and we all know how easy it is to over eat! This scale has been great weighing my portions better and easily reading the digital lcd screen in pounds and ounces!
 
I also have a large family (5 kids remember😉) so the scale is nice to measure out snacks (no more he/she got more than i did😬😭) or when i buy my bulk meat and have to seperate and freeze i get accurate weight.

Last but not least the white with glass scale looks good in every kitchen and is super easy to clean!!! 
I love mine!!!

    Mommy in PA:  This is the perfect kitchen scale for my household.  Generous sized weighing platform, no more trying to peek under the edge of a container to read the display panel.  The blue LCD screen is easy to read.  And it does just enough without going overboard (I hate being confused by all of the functions on these new gadgets).

  I use a kitchen scale quite a bit.  Weighing our burgers to make sure they are all about the same size so they cook equally.  Weighing out foods that are so many ounces or grams per serving either for my health/fitness goals or my son's Type 1 Diabetes.  Food weights are very important and having a scale like this one really makes it easier.  

  It's also great that it has that auto shut off after two minutes...if not I would probably forget and end up with dead batteries all the time lol : )  

  Possibly the best part of this scale is it's ability to weigh up to 18 lbs.  for a kitchen scale that is wonderful.  Most other kitchen scales I have had in the past only weighed up to five pounds or so.  

  It is super easy to clean too.  Just take a damp, soapy cloth and wipe it down.  Anything that makes cleanups easier is a big plus : )

Ozeri Breeza Oscillating 10" High Velocity Desk Fan

disclaimer:  I received the product below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Ozeri Breeza Oscillating 10" High Velocity Desk Fan 



  Summer can be brutal, and air conditioners can cost a lot to run, but what's a girl gonna do when it is really hot but she needs to get her blog work done?!?!  Well this one's got herself an Ozeri Breeza Oscillating 10" High Velocity Desk Fan : )  

  Front controls make it easy access, no more having to reach up and over to adjust things.  Pivoting base allows for a full 90 degree tilt upwards and the oscillating motor allows for a 90 degree movement back and forth to better cool the air.  

  With three different speeds at each setting (oscillating or fixed) you will easily find what works well in your particular situation.  And with the lowest dB noise rating you will be able to hear yourself think : )

  Comes completely assembled so it is just unpack, plug in, and unwind : )  Fan can also be utilized in the winter to help circulate warm air around the home.  


Mommy in PA:  This little fan moves a lot of air.  It moves about the same amount as our large box fan but you can actually still hear the television over it.  


I love how it is an oscillating unit without having the terrible top-heavy design of the standard oscillating fans.  My son has one of the regular ones in his room and I am constantly tipping it over when I go to adjust the speed.  Not to mention if you have a regular one sitting up on something and you bump it...tips right over.  Not this one :)




Another feature I love is that all functions are done by one dial located on the front of the base.  Super easy to get to.  

And it also looks nicer than my other fans.  No more big boxy looking fan sitting on the floor, now I can put this one up on something and know it has a sturdy base so it won't tip over.  Much more appealing to look at.  And takes up hardly any space compared to the other fans I own.

Ozeri Artesio Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set

disclaimer:  I received the product below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Ozeri Artesio Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set (BPA Free)



  Are you looking for something to make mealtimes and food prep a little more fun?  Or perhaps you love freshly cracked salt and pepper but suffer from arthritis or just don't like the extra work of the hand operated grinders?  Well then the Ozeri Artesio Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder set will be right up your alley.

  Each set contains one salt and one pepper grinder featuring an easy push button design and durable ceramic burr mill to grind salt, peppercorns, or other spices.  They also feature a handy adjustment to determine how fine to coarse you want your spices.

  Another great feature is the built in light that allows you to see precisely how much seasoning is going onto your food.  See-through containers make it a breeze to see when it is time to refill which is done by easily unlocking the container and pouring in the desired amount of seasonings.  

  Each grinder requires four AA batteries, not included.

  Mommy in PA:  These are just awesome!  I love how they look, so sleek and modern.  They go with pretty much any decor with the standard black and white color scheme.  

They work great!!  I love how you can easily adjust the amount that comes out just by turning the little knob on the bottom.
I also like that when you push the button to dispense your salt and pepper that the light comes on so you can see how much you are putting on your food.  

These work way better than any hand operated grinders I have used.  And it's nice that the containers are clear so you can easily tell when it is time to refill.  

And last but not least, these are just plain fun to use : )  The only thing I didn't really care for is that each grinder takes four AA batteries.  Not sure how quickly it will go through them but I hope a set of batteries lasts quite awhile.

Happy Wax

disclaimer:  I received the product below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Happy Wax



  Happy Wax wax melts are a soy based alternative to the traditional mainstream paraffin products that have overtaken the market in the past few years.  

  Not only are they safer by being melts instead of open flame candles but they are also made out of 100% soy and all-natural essential oils.  They also non-toxic and saline free.  And due to the use of soy they last longer and smell stronger than the traditional paraffin ones.  And they are all hand-made in North Carolina.

  These also don't require you to break apart the blocks, these come in a variety of shapes that you just grab out of a tin storage container and place in your melter.  You can also purchase your melts but the half pound bag.

  Happy Wax wax melts come in a variety of scents:
Lemon Verbena
Cinnamon Chai
Lilac
Cucumber Melon
Eucalyptus Spearmint
Fresh Bamboo
Lavender Chamomile
etc.  (There are just too many scents to list here)

  And also a variety of shapes:
Gummy Bears
Hearts
Festive Trees
Fish
Mustaches
Stars
Snowmen

  Oh and they offer free shipping over $20.



Mommy in PA:  I received the classic wax warmer and a tin of the Lilac scented Heart wax melts.  First off I want to say that the warmer is excellent.  Much better quality than the one I had purchased for myself at a well-known retailer.  The top part doesn't get as hot as my other one so it is much easier to empty.  

  Now onto the wax melts.  These are AMAZING!!!  I could smell them in the next room just from opening the tin.  The tins are super cute and a great way to store your melts right next to your warmer, no more stashing them in a drawer lol :)  I also love that when they are melting they actually scented up a good 75% percent of my house (well upstairs and downstairs, didn't smell them in the basement or attic).  The scent was very pure smelling, not all that fakeness we are all used to these days.  

  I also loved the fact that I just reach in and grab one from the tin instead of having to break them apart like the other brands.  

  Oh and their prices are very reasonable.  Especially if you buy the half pound bags.  They are under $20 bucks and look like they would last for quite awhile.  If you are using a wall mount unit they recommend using one wax melt at a time, if you are using a larger unit like the one above, they recommend using two to three and encourage mixing scents 
: )

  I am very happy with my warmer and melts and can't wait to order some more scents to try out.  The selection is amazing!!!!  They have a ton of scents so be sure to head over and check them out.  They have something for everybody : )  And be sure to sign up for their email list so that you can find out when the deals are.

Currently they have an offer where if you use code IHEARTWAX you get 10% off your order!!!

"On Edge: A Journey Through Anxiety"

Disclaimer:  I received the following from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

"On Edge:  A Journey Through Anxiety"



  By Andrea Petersen

  "On Edge:  A Journey Through Anxiety" is Andrea Petersen's first hand experiences with panic attacks and anxiety disorder.  From her first panic attack in college until the current day follow Andrea's path through the terrible symptoms she experiences and her learning about what possibly makes her that way.  

  Can you imagine what it would be like to be terrified of using a brand new tube of toothpaste?  Well Andrea does, along with a lot of other things that to us would seem normal.  Find out what types of therapies and medications she has tried along the way and how they affected her.  Also find out what family history can effect.

  Will she ever have a happy relationship?  Will she ever be able to have a child?  Andrea will answer all of these questions in the book.

  Mommy in PA:  Ok, so most of us have experienced a bit of anxiety, depression, paranoia, etc. you get the picture.  And I've also heard that a little bit of anxiety is good for you.  Well sometimes I feel like I have a little too much, my husband has been known to say "You worry too much" quite frequently lol : )  So needless to say I picked this book due to being a bit curious.  

  Wow!  She packs a lot of info in here...a lot more than I really needed but would be helpful for others I am sure.  I about put the book down around the middle because there was just so much about the clinical tests and all the results and her meeting with all of these professionals and learning about the advances in testing and treating.  But needless to say I was happy once she got back to talking about her own experiences again.

  I found her story very sad at times, but also very hopeful and happy at others.  She proves that you can have anxiety and still have good times in your life : )  This was an excellent read for folks who want to familiarize themselves with how the brain reacts during a panic attack or just general anxiety, she goes over a lot of the research.

Bioken Enfanti M72 Ceramide Hair Products + Giveaways!!!

disclaimer: We received the products below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.

Bioken Enfanti M72 Hair Products + Giveaways!!!
  M72 Ceramide Mask is a product created using 72 trace minerals and ceramides to strengthen and restore elasticity to your hair.  So you may be wondering what ceramides are, well they are one of three types of lipids found in the hair cuticle which helps anchor the hair in place. 

  The product was created to repair damage to hair, restore balance, and provide a protective barrier.

  Mommy in PA:  I love, love, love the smell of this product.  And how it feels when applying really makes it feel like a luxury product.  Very thick, stays on well, and again the smell is just wonderful.  

  I tried the product with and without using my regular conditioner first.  With both scenarios the product left my hair feeling very soft and silky when it was still damp.  But after I noticed quite a difference.  When using without my regular conditioner I noticed that my hair was left feeling pretty dry and frizzish.  When using with my regular conditioner it left my hair feeling silky, soft, and smooth.  I did notice that it didn't weigh my hair down whichever way I used it and I also noticed another nice benefit, not having to wash my hair as often.  I typically only wash my hair every other day so as not to dry it out but with the featured product I could easily go another whole day without washing if I wanted to.

Oh and if you are worried about the price, don't be, this product should easily last you a few months as you don't need a lot per application and they give you a nice size container : )
  All in all I really enjoyed the product especially in combination with my regular conditioner.   

Enter below for your chance to win your very own Mask.

M72 Keratin Shampoo


What is M72 Ceramide Keratin Shampoo?  It is a shampoo that is made of 72 minerals that are essential for the most effective way to disperse major nutrients and also the ceramide (which is 1 of 3 types of lipids found in the cuticle, which work as cement  to keep hair intact)
Retains Essential Lipids
Restores Balance
Adds Elasticity

What Mommy I Ga thought:
Ok  so first off I do A LOT of stuff with my hair that we are told not to lol!!
I straighten and curl on a daily basis,
blow dry a good bit,
Color like crazy,
I am always excited to try new products that claim to repair or strengthen your hair!!!

I am very pleased wit the 72
Keratin Shampoo. I was worried it would leave my hair feeling weird or heavy but just after the shampoo it felt pretty light.   Ya"ll HAVE GOT to try the conditioner with it though!!!  My review is about to get better!!!! scroll down <3


M72 keratin Conditioner


The Conditioner is a mixture of the same 72 minerals and ceramide as the shampoo only it adds the benefit of
Detangling and  smoothing.
  • restores balance
  • intensive moisturizer
    Detangles and Smoothes

  • What Mommy in Ga thought: Using the M72Shampoo AND the M72 Conditioner together!!!
  • My hair feels stronger and looks healthier (I am such an idiot...why didn't  I do a before and after pic?? Oh wait I am lucky to wash it let alone get to look at it with all these kids looking for snacks and drinks while I try to take 5 minutes to clean myself haha)
     
  • These are great product they really did seem to help my hair!!

"The Chamberlain Key"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

"The Chamberlain Key"

by Timothy P. Smith

  This book takes you on the ongoing journey with Timothy to discover how he knows that God himself is behind the words of the Bible.  What if there was a way to prove it, would there be more believers.  Well what if Timothy found proof.  What if Timothy found his own name, wife's name (maiden included) and his children's names all hidden in one very small section of Genesis.  Well guess what, he did.  

  Just as QR codes compress a bunch of information into a tiny square that can be scanned and decoded.  The Bible also has clues embedded in it in a three dimensional form.  Timothy explains how this works and how we too can help decode it.

  Mommy in PA:  If you like mystery books, decoding, Bible history, etc. you will enjoy this book.  It will keep you guessing as to just what he will be able to find next.  

  I really enjoyed how he goes into a deeper explanation of things, even though I was still a bit lost, it definitely adds to his notability.  Anyone can say that they found something in the Bible in Hebrew but he actually shows you the text and breaks it down.  

  I also like how he shows you photos of things that he used for references along his journey.  Like that gorgeous copy of "The Leningrad Codex"and the sixteen Rocio Madonna icons.  It is also amazing how he noticed pictures forming out of the key letters in the text.  

  And perhaps the greatest thing is that he gives people a website to go to where they can offer insight, ask questions, and learn about all of the ongoing research.  And you don't even have to be an expert to help, just head over here and check it out.

  We all have questions about why we are here but perhaps Timothy has found out his reason and can help others find theirs too.

Dia Noche Designs

disclaimer:  We received the products below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.


DiaNoche Designs

  So with Mother's Day just around the corner we know a lot of you are still searching for just the right gift.  Well let us help you take some of the guess work out of it with  DiaNoche Designs.

  DiaNoche Designs has a variety of products from home decor, outdoor living, even fitness apparel and supplies.  And what makes DiaNoche Designs stand apart from any other shopping site?  Well we will tell you...it's the fact that you can make most of your things match...want your yoga pants to match your yoga mat???  How about your shower curtain matching the pillows on your couch?  Well they can do that.

  One warning...make sure you have plenty of time on your hands before going to their site...there is just so much to choose from.

  Mommy in GA: I was super excited to get my yoga mat❤! I have never really done yoga but now i do on almost a daily basis! It is soft and easy to use and store! 
Mine came with a carrying bag which is great to store your mat OR if you workout on the go.

The best part is if I want my yoga pants and mat oh also my bedspread and shower curtain I can find the same pattern for all those items and much more! Cutting boards and couch cushions (i am just getting started!!)

Yoga mat

Me doing reach ups(don't mind the baby😂 he is my coach😉)

My 11 year old being silly

Quadriplex?? Form is lacking but that yoga mat is not!!!

The yoga mat is so great that you need to watch your back or mid work out someone may grab it......no really that literally happened to me look!!!


  Mommy in PA:  I received a pair of the Leggings in the pattern Correlation IV.  But let me tell you...it was a tricky decision.  With so many patterns to choose from I actually had to ask for backup...lol.  I bet it took us over an hour to decide on just the right pattern : )




These are really nice leggings as far as feel goes, they are the really silky feeling ones so they are very comfortable : )  And like I said above, they literally have something for everyone.  Whatever your taste is I am sure you will find some that are right up your alley.

Now I did notice a couple of things with these that I did not like.  The first thing is the thinness.  I should have ordered a darker pattern as these ones you can see through pretty easily, even with white undies : (  I also don't care for the waist band so much as it doesn't have a lot of stretch, this in turn can be a good thing though after you have them on as it does help flatten the belly area : )  Now onto my biggest issue, which is not their fault at all...genetics actually.  Because I am so short there was a good couple inches of leggings bunched up around my ankles...I didn't actually measure but it was quite a bit (I am only 5'2" so I run into this problem from time to time).  Again, not their fault I am built funny : )

Knowing what I know now I would have chosen a darker color possibly in the next size up (to take care of my waist band issue) but I really do like them : )

  Oh and as a side note, if I wanted to in the future I could get the following items to match my leggings:  shower curtain, area rug, tote bag, ottoman, blanket, throw pillow, towels, place mats, duvet covers, shams, wall art, cutting board, bathroom mat, dog bed, curtains, or a yoga mat.  See what I mean about being able to match your stuff....it is AMAZING!

Invisible Glass

disclaimer:  I received the products below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

Invisible Glass




So after a week of spreading the news about all of these Earth Friendly products we figured what would all that hard work be worth without the ability to see the Earth in all of its beauty...that's where Invisible Glass steps in : )

Or if you are looking for a unique idea for Mother's Day...you could always clean your mother's windows for her : )

Invisible Glass is a premium glass cleaner produced by Stoner.  Stoner actually makes a ton of high quality automotive cleaning products.  


  And what's even better...you can even purchase Invisible Glass at Walmart.  



Mommy in PA:  I love, love, love the Reach & Clean Tool!!!  It

worked perfectly at allowing me to finally reach my hard to 

clean windows.  I was finally able to reach the tops without having to use a step stool, which in turn made my window cleaning go a lot quicker : )  

I also like the Invisible Glass formula, it did leave my windows so clean that my twelve year old actually said he was having a hard time telling if the windows were open or not.  LOL
before...see those nasty smudges...yuck!


after : )

Now I did notice some streaking but it was actually because of some kind of residue on the window which I was finally able to scrub away and no more streaks : )

And last but not least, the wipes...these are AWESOME!!!  They worked great for cleaning our Ipad which has a tendency of getting very smudgy.  The wipes also worked great on our computer monitor.  

This is a wonderful line of products that I would recommend to everyone : )



Before...can you tell I play a lot of Candy Crush?!?!  LOL


After using the Invisible Glass Wipes....AMAZING!
