Deep Love


Why is it so hard not to love deeply?

You know when you love someone with every fiber in your body.

When we love someone it hurts when we disappoint them. We want to take back everything we said or did to upset them.

However, when you do love that strongly you must not lose yourself in that person. Stay true to who you are. Remember you need emotional, physical, & mental support as well.

I have no problem with people loving deeply; I have a problem when the person giving the love is not getting the same back.

Life as we know it is already dysfunctional don’t willingly be in a dysfunctional relationship.

As deep as you live that person you should live yourself MORE!

Gutzy Gear


Oh my, me and my Godson was so excited when we got the opportunity to review Gutzy Gear.

We tore through the box looking at all the cool stuff that him and his friends would be able to put on their backpacks. Gutzy Gear sends you plenty of things for the kids to be unique and have their own voice when decorating their backpacks.

Gutzy Gear

Unfortunately, my son has been sick and hasn’t had his friends over to decorate their backpacks. He has decorated a bag but he didn’t want me to show “the world” until him and his friends had a chance to do all the bags (in his words) LOL

Gutzy Gear is a fun product that allows the kids to decorate their backpacks! It comes with 2 straps, that Velcro around the backpack straps, and patches that Velcro to the straps. The kids can fill their straps with patches, but since they are held on with Velcro they can be moved around, and traded!

I’m really excited to offer my readers the chance to win a Gutzy Gear starter kit. Winner will receive a starter kit (2 straps +free patch) and 2 patch sets PLUS 2 additional starter kits to gift to 2 friends. Click here to enter the giveaway & find other places to enter to increase your chances.

Neil Armstrong Footprints


Over the weekend we learned of another important figure has passed away. Neil Armstrong died on Saturday.

We all know who Neil was, right? The first man to walk on the moon. He was a member of Apollo 11 and his footprint will always be a part of history.

With his passing and the fact that people are dying off quicker and younger got me to thinking: what footprint will my life leave on mankind (or just my family)?

For me, I am trying to leave a legacy for my kids and grand kids. My footprint may not be as big as Neil Armstrong but to those that I touch it will be even bigger.

We should always strive to be a change agent in our community, in our families, and in the lives of those in our circle.

You may not walk on the moon but your walk can be beneficial to all. So what will your walk be?

So(u)l search your life & your mission and begin to leave your footprints. Don’t compare your footprints to others just follow your path and just know others will benefit.

What will be your footprint?

Beanfields chips


I had the pleasure of trying my first bean and rice chips. Beanfields Snacks sent me 7 bags of chips to try,

The flavors they sent me were:

  • Nacho (Vegan)
  • Unsalted
  • Sea Salt & Pepper
  • Sea Salt
  • Pico de Gallo

I must tell you that if you have never tried a chip that is made purely from beans and rice, then it will take a moment for you to embrace the taste. You know we are so use to having greasy fried chips that our taste buds will go into shock when we try a chip that is healthy in nature.

I recommend you try these chips. They have different flavors to meet all flavor tastes. Enter the giveaway below to get an opportunity to try these for yourself.

Nature’s Sleep Memory Foam Slippers


When you hear the words: Nature’s Sleep, you automatically think about mattresses. Oh but let me tell you, they have other products and I got a chance to try their Memory Foam slippers.

If you are anything like me, you are always keeping something on your feet but it must be the right shoe/slipper/sock because if it doesn’t slip on quickly or feel good to the feet you will not wear them.

Memory Foam slippers are definitely quick to get into and it feels good to the foot. The slippers definitely keep your foot off the cold floor and gives you a good grip.

The one thing I didn’t care for but it turned out ok later was the slippers originally was hard but like any shoes you had to break them in. Oh but once the shoes formed to your feet and your feet got use to the shoes, they are the perfect house slippers

Open Toe Memory Foam Slippers


As with any “memory” type of product, you must allow the product to get to know you. I definitely don’t share my slippers because I don’t want the shoe to take the form of anyone else feet LOL

So, if you are looking for a new slipper then you should definitely look into Nature’s Sleep Memory Foam slippers.

They have several colors available. Don’t sleep (pun intended) on these sleepers. As with Nature’s Sleep products, the slippers are worth the investment.

I have the pleasure of offering a giveaway, look for the giveaway to post next week! Oh yeah, you definitely want to participate so you can win your own pair of Nature’s Sleep Memory Foam slippers.

Conscious Box

Conscious Box

School is back in session for some & starting soon for others! Yes mothers I know you are overly excited LOL One of the things that we begin to think about when the kids are in school is after school snacks.

I had the pleasure of reviewing a Conscious Box. Just what is a Conscious Box?  “Conscious Box is a monthly delivery of pure and sustainable
products that are handpicked from businesses that care for the planet—just like you.”

The box I received had some great products in there. I got the opportunity to try the squeezable Apple Sauce (actually my grandbaby tried it). She loved it! I went out the next day and bought a 4pack of the Applesauce.

The beauty of the Conscious Box (besides being able to reuse the box) is you are able to try different products you may not have heard of or wanted to try. The cost of the box is minimum to say the least for the high quality of products you receive.

Wait did I tell you about the Orange Essential Oil that was in the box. I have pretty much used this up because I use it as a room diffuser. I place a couple drops in a small pot of water & heat it on the stove. Oh it has the house smelling “orangey” . Love it!

There will be something in the box that you will definitely be able to use and even a few items you will say “I didn’t know this product existed.”

The box I received for July included: Go Go Squeez Applesauce, Aura Cacia Aromatherapy Deck, Vegan Eye Shadow, Aura Cacia Sweet Orange Essential Oil, St. Claire’s Organic Peppermints (YUM), Mighty Leaf Iced Tea, powbab superfruit chews, Jadience Muscle & joint therapeutic cream, Sun Warrior Raw Protein, Tea forte teas, JustGreatStuff bar, Madhava Organic Coconut Nectar, Naturally it’s clean Floor Cleaner!

You definitely should look into getting the August ‘Back to School’ Conscious Box! It’s going to have delicious, nutritious snacks, some  great daily alternatives, and tons of other really fun stuff that everyone will enjoy, making it an AWESOME gift for all students, including K-12 and college. And yes, it’s great for students and non students alike, so you can gift it to anyone!  Just remember, you’ve got to order before the 6th of the month! This is the only legitimately healthy care package we’ve seen this year, and they’re going fast!
