I Won With Whitney Pampering Products for The Fall

Autumn is time for renewal and rejuvenation and thanks to my “lil sis” and fellow blogger, Whitney Nic James, I am ready to shed my summer skin and rejuvenate my face. 

I was the lucky winner of her “11 Ways to Pamper Yourself At Home + A Giveaway” and received a 19.40 oz jar of Coconut Oil Exfoliating Salt Scrub.  It smells wonderful and after using it in the shower it left my skin feeling soft and refreshed.  It also helped with the dryness on my legs and arms after a recent bout with poison oak.

Not only did I win the the Coconut Oil Exfoliating Salt Scrub but she also included a few other goodies!  The box I received contained several other pampering products all wrapped in silver tissue paper along with a lovely embellished Thank You card.

Thank you Whitney, these are all products that I will try because as you know I recently celebrated my 55th Birthday and pampering is definitely on the schedule for the entire month of September. 

After I use these products, I may come back with a follow-up post if I had any adverse reactions or was overly impressed with any of them, so stay tuned.


So tell me, what is your favorite home spa pampering products?

Thankful Thursday

Hello Friends and Happy Thankful Thursday!

This week started off great, on Monday hubby received the best news since his cancer diagnosis and surgery – NO CHEMO!!!  I am thankful that he doesn’t have to go through that procedure although he will need to be monitored and tested every 3-4 months.  I am also thankful to all of you for your thoughts and prayers during this time!

I am thankful to have had another DIY article published in the Parade Magazine, the first one was the “Storm Survival Kit“.  If you haven’t had a chance to read it click here and I would appreciate it if you made a comment on their website as well.

Placemats to Purses

I am also thankful for winning a Giveaway sponsored by Me and My Mini Me, a JunoPower External Battery and this little guy is awesome!  A few weeks ago I attended an event after work and about an hour into the program the battery on my Samsung G4 mobile phone died!  

Don’t you feel disconnected from the rest of the world when that happens?  I wish I had had the JunoPower at the time because it would have charged my phone in less than an hour allowing me to post more pics on my Instagram page (aah the life of a blogger)!

Won Juno Power Battery


The Juno Power Battery has two USB ports so that it can charge two devices at the same time, and it can be either an Apple or Android product.

The best thing about the Juno Power is that it holds a charge so you don’t need to keep it plugged in when not in use, and if you forget to turn it off it will go into a sleep mode and power down.  It comes with a USB cord which you can plug into a charger/outlet for recharging and the LCD screen shows the percentage of battery life remaining.

HUE plus battery stays in my  purse

The Juno Power Hue Battery comes in an assortment of metallic colors, I chose pink (I wonder why), and it will stay in my purse away from my son Malik the electronics guru!


Thank you !


Okay, it’s your turn, what are you thankful for this week?

Thankful Thursday

Stay Blessed – No Stress in 2014!
