#HintingSeason with LG OLED at Best Buy

Thereviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality. 
The LG OLED TV delivers the ultimate display with Infinite Contrast ratio that measures and exhibits only the most radiant whites and profound blacks while offering a more lifelike viewing experience. This is something that has only been seen in our dreams until recently! OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. But, that's not all... By increasing the color range and clarity, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology provides the most illuminated, vivid colors. LG's 4 …

CEDAR POINT ANNOUNCES NEW FLOORLESS ROLLER COASTER FOR 2015!!!

Say goodbye to the Mantis and hello to the new floorless roller Coaster, Rougarou! Cedar Point, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World!®, will introduce a dynamically new riding experience when it unleashes Rougarou™ in the spring of 2015! Named after a terrifying werewolf-like creature in French folklore, Rougarou [roo-guh-roo] feeds on screams and lurks in and around the swampy lagoon at the center of the park, shared with other coasters like Iron Dragon and Top Thrill Dragster. Rougarou’s floorless trains will take riders on an epic journey at speeds reaching 60 mph as their feet dangle just inches above the track and the murky waters below. The trains will be manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, Monthey, Switzerland, the same team behind rides like Raptor and GateKeeper, and will transform the ride experience dramatically while utilizing the structure and track of the former Mantis roller coaster. The ride will begin with a climb to the top of the 145-foot-tall first hill, prov…

Urban Decay eyeshadow primer

I am a makeup junkie. I love trying all different kinds of products and a huge fan of changing my look from day to day. Today I’m going to review Urban Decay Eyeshadow make-up primer potion- original. This product is fantastic.
The Original primer potion is great if you’re like me and have both matte and shimmery eye-shadows and like to switch it up often throughout the weeks. You just take barely a pea size amount, rub it in, let it dry, and you’re ready to go.
All day my makeup stays put and the color lasts forever, even when I am running around waiting tables on a busy Saturday night. My make-up never slides, never creases, never so much as smudges the entire time I am working. This is honestly the best primer I have found, and the most versatile as well. It keeps your mattes flat and even with no creases, and your shimmeries sparkly all day long.
The only draw back to this product is when it says it offers 24 hours of lasting coverage, it means it. I ran out of makeup remover and…

My Favorite Natural Remedies to Deal With My MS Symptoms

In 2006 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which caused me to drop out of school. It took me months to find a medication and fight with the companies to cover the 3,000 a month for my interferon. After a few months they stopped sending my medication and when I called I was told there was a recall on it and they had to switch me to something else. My new injections caused me terrible pain to the point where I couldn't sleep. However my doctor refused to switch me and told me to just take Tylenol to relieve the pain. After almost a year of this I had had it. I started looking into alternative medicine and researching my illness. There is so much out there that my doctor never even told me about even after I asked about more natural remedies that wouldn't kill my body and leave me unable to function at work.  Here are some of the things I found that worked great for me.
Bilberry leaves and berries- You can find these in tea, pills, or certain areas as fresh fruit. When…

Go Way Better With Way Better Snacks!

I'm almost embarrassed to tell you about my liking of Way Better Snacks. Their Way Better Blues and Multi Grain snacks have me totally obsessed! You think I'm over exaggerating, huh? Yeah, I'm not... I have made it my mission in life to find these Way Better Snacks close to my home. All of my hard work and searching has yet to pay off but I haven't checked the most obvious store yet, The Fresh Market. Unfortunately for now, this is the only store near my home that carries Way Better Snacks but I hear that they will be available at all Market Place Kroger Stores October 1st. Yay for me, not so yay for you. I will be hoarding all of them in my pantry, sorry guys! My 20 month old daughter is probably just as obsessed with Way Better Snacks, as well, especially if there is hummus involved.  


Way Better Snacks are high in omega 3’s, antioxidants and other vital nutrients, and all are low in sodium and saturated fat.  They're also all natural, vegan, certified gluten free…

Newman's Own Organics for the furballs in your life.

***I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review. Your opinion may vary from mine.***
My dog, Karma, is a very special girl. Karma is a 3 1/2 year old American Mastiff that was born with a serious heart condition. At first the Veterinarians thought she just had a minor heart murmur, but after a visit to the doggie cardiologist all hope had vanished. She was basically diagnosed with heart failure because of how bad the condition of her heart was. Karma was given no more than 9 months to live; the doc's all figured her heart would give out before she made it to her first birthday. My heart was broken. Just two months earlier, my very best friend and first dog, Buster, had passed away from a stroke. He was only 5 years old and not a single person could tell me why he seemed to age so fast. So here I was, trembling from the thought of having to go through this all over again. Everyone told me to just have her *bleep…

Original Sprout Review

***I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review. Your opinion may vary from mine.***
One of my favorite things about babies is their smell. I love to cuddle up with my daughter and just breathe in her scent, especially after bath time. Every time I go to the store to buy bath products for my daughter I have to smell all the products and I get extremely frustrated when I can't find a natural bath product that smells decent. I want my daughter to smell great but I also want a more natural product, especially since some have been known to cause cancer (or so they say). I live in a part of Ohio that isn't far (about an hour away) from a town with a huge unexplained cancer cluster problem found in children. That makes me very nervous! Even though we're an hour away from this town it still makes me think and worry about the well-being of my child. I could never in a million years imagine something happening t…

Baby Gourmet Review

***I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review. Your opinion may vary from mine.*** Getting my daughter to eat is always such a hassle. I don't want her to make a mess but she insists on feeding herself or she doesn't eat at all. I wasn't quite sure how she would feel about the Baby Gourmet brand but as long as I let her carry it around, she loves it. So far there is not a single flavor that my daughter does not like and I hate to admit but I've tasted them as well and they're actually pretty delicious for baby food.  Baby Gourmet has a great selection of flavors in stages 1-3 from Tropical Banana Bliss to Apple, Sweet Potato, and Berry Swirl. They also have protein puree's available that are loaded with the essential proteins every child needs to grow strong muscles.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

Are you gluten free or trying to eat cleaner? If so, I have the perfect recipe for you! My family and I tried this out last night and it was a huge hit! 
It's very hard to get my 3 year old to sit down and eat during dinner but last night, she didn't budge and even asked for seconds. My fiancé is just as hard to please when it comes to dinner. He's very picky and not easily impressed but he loved this recipe. Even if you aren't watching your diet, this is still a fantastic meal made from scratch that your family is sure to enjoy!
Ingredients:
Crust 1 head of organic cauliflower 1 tbs of fresh minced garlic 1 tbs of dry Italian seasoning 1 large free-range egg 1/4 cup of organic Mozzarella

Get Motivated Through Music with Best Buy and yurbuds!

**Thereviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free**
It's a new year with new goals, challenges, and resolutions. This year, my resolution has been to #GetMotivated, eat healthier, and take my health more seriously. By cutting out gluten and dairy from my diet as well as taking over 10,000 steps a day, I plan on keeping my resolution and reaching my goals. I use my Fitbit to track my steps throughout the day and while I'm on the treadmill. My Fitbit allows me to keep track of how many steps I've taken while counting calories burned. At the end of the day, I just sync my Fitbit up to my computer/online app and check out my results. The online app allows me to see my progress, what I need to work on, connect with other friends, and journal my struggles, food intake, and goals. So far this year, I've lost 8 pounds by sticking to this regimen.  Getting motivated and staying that way would…

Herbal Essence Naked Volume Collection

**I received this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**
Herbal Essence has a new collection out called the Naked Collection Volume. Obviously I was intrigued by this because naked to me means no crazy chemicals and my hair loves products like those. I used to have very thick and healthy hair but it has thinned out dramatically since I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease over 5 years ago. Nowadays, my hair is very picky about the products I use. I wouldn't say it's damaged, it actually looks and feels pretty healthy, but it goes flat and becomes greasy quick because of how thin it is. Because of the autoimmune disease I have, I like to watch what kind of chemicals my body comes in contact with. Anything is mess up the balance in a compromised immune system. Needless to say, I was excited to learn more about the Naked Volume Collection by Herbal Essence.
