I personally haven’t had the chance to try Itworks but I have always wanted to. Anything to get this round girl skinny I am in! Thank goodness for this Facebook event so that I can get my butt in gear ahead of time and keep myself on track for the holidays! Have you ever tried Itworks products? My name is Stacey Melton and I am an independent distributor for Itworks global. My husband is a SGT for the Army National Guard. We got married in 2008 and have a 7 year old daughter named Faith, 2 year old son named Lucas and I am currently pregnant with our third child! Right now we live in Fredericksburg VA but hope to soon be able to move to Cocoa FL to closer to family. Itworks Global was founded in 2001 and became completely debt free in 2004! We have been featured in Forbes fastest growing MLMs and we have also been in Success From Home Magazine. Since joining this company, I have grown into the person I knew I was always meant to be. I have made friendships with strangers who I now consider to be family. The love and support we give each other on a daily basis was not something I had expected. I love that our company is a christian based company and we can always go to each other for anything! I have also been able to stay home full time with my kids which has been such a blessing to my family! By next year my goal is to be able to retire my husband and for us to be able to move to FL. If there is one thing this company has taught me its that, anything is possible as long as you put in the effort to make it happen. That’s exactly what I have been doing and I have already started seeing it come true with myself and many many others!

Jamberry Nails

There is an event going on now on Facebook where you can meet Allison Romango our Jamberry Representative and our other amazing representatives! Join us for Black Friday Event and shop in comfort with out crowds, parking or having to vary heavy bags! Click here to join!

I recently purchased from Jamberry because lately trying to get my nails done has been impossible. I am so busy I don’t have time for it. Plus with all of the cool nail trends and styles out there I was getting bored of the plain polish I have been doing. I don’t have time to sit at a salon as of late and with the holidays coming up you can’t be seen with icky nails so Jamberry seemed like an excellent alternative. I had to have the Mint Green Chevron which seemed perfect for any holiday occasion and because I love them I couldn’t resist the Poised Peacock.  The best part is they stay on for about 2 weeks.  No chipping or breaking! I can finally walk around with out looking like I work on a farm.

To introduce you to Jamberry is Allison and here is her story.   My name is Allison and about 6 months ago I began my Jamberry journey. Jamberry is a heat activated nail wrap that last on your fingers for up to 2 weeks and on your toes for up to 6!!! It is an amazing product and I love it so much I decided to share my love for it and sell it.  Being a part of Jamberry has changed my life. I can help provide more for my family and I have met so many amazing people. Please contact me if you are interested in joining my team or hosting your own Facebook party!!!

Ebates Is My New Bestie





Ebates Coupons is for realzies my new best friend. I know you have seen the commercials for Ebates but I am sure most of you have probably never tried it.
I am an avid online shopper. I do almost all of my shopping online because you can have time to really think about your purchase, see what you are spending ahead of time and find all of the coupons and discounts you can before making final decisions. These are very important things to me. You have a tendency to overspend while in a store. Online you can avoid distractions, take time to consider your options and you don’t have to worry about lugging around your stuff or waiting on lines.
One evening I was trying to make a purchase form a store that had really no coupons or discounts to offer. Usually I would say eff this place and find another but they had items I really didn’t want to give up. I searched high and low and then remembered I had seen the commercial for Ebates saying you get cash back from making purchases online. I decided to try it. I signed up and got a $10 gift card to Target (one of my fave places ever) and noticed that the store I wanted was listed in their directory with 3% cash back and a 10% discount for using Ebates. I got what I wanted from the store not expecting much but a few day’s later I saw a dollar amount in my account. I did a little more fiddling around in my account and saw you have an option for Ebates to deposit directly in your Paypal account or send you a check. I opted for the check to see how legit this really was. A few weeks later, after a few more small shopping excursions, low and behold I got me a check for $16.35. I deposited it in my account and got myself some money back.
No scams, no small print, it really is legit. I have been using Ebates for all of my shopping now. I have yet to find a store that isn’t associated with them. I am excited to see how much I will earn during the holidays! I suggest you sign up here just to try it out. Worst case you get a free gift card to a store of your choice. Some stores offer up to 12.5% cash back!!! It is worth a look.
Have you or anyone you know tried Ebates before? Tell me what your experience was. I’d love to hear about it!!

Summer Necklaces You Must Have

I can never get enough of accessories. They are some of my favorite things. Spring is here and it is definitely time to introduce more colors into your wardrobe. You can wear bigger pieces because you no longer need to be bundeled up. Cleavage time is here and now you must accessorize it.

Bamboleo Necklace

Bamboleo Necklace

Stella & Dot Bamboleo Necklace

from: Stella & Dot I saw this necklace the other day and decided everyone had to see it because they too would love it. The colors, chains, beads and stones all come together perfectly to make probably one of the hottest you have ever seen in your life EVER! I think as a group us women should get together and purchase said necklace so we can all feel apart of the cool club because this necklace is just that. I would probably consider myself the coolest lady on earth if I owned this piece….now how to convince the bf I need it???? hmmmmm????

Zahara Bib Necklace

Zahara Bib Necklace


Stella & Dot Zahara Bib Necklace Hullo fabulous! Where have you been all of my life?!?! This necklace will wind up in my jewelry cabinet very soon. The colors are perfect for an all white out fit! Say bikini or linen suit.  Yes I think so.  Right now I am laying on the beach with my big floppy hat in a beautiful, non-see through all white bikini with this necklace on and I am the hottest lady in the sand!  Yea I said it!




Marchesa Necklace

Marchesa Necklace




Stella & Dot Marchesa Necklace This is the perfect color for warm weather. I really dig any chain accessory mixed with color. That style just screams sexy to me. I am usually not a fan of asymmetry but this necklace makes it look luxurious.  I need these for some of my strapless dresses.  You could even pair it with a long skirt and tank.  It kind of screams rock & roll right?



Olivia Pearl & Ribbon Necklace

Olivia Pearl & Ribbon Necklace



Stella & Dot Olivia Pearl & Ribbon Necklace
from: Stella & Dot I am really into ribbon and pearl accessories lately. I swore them off for a short period of time but I am falling in love with them again. This necklace is simple but mucho gorge! It is perfect for layering.  You could even wrap it around your wrist a few times to make a bracelet.

Facial at Pur Salon

Pur Salon

Pur Salon


OOPS I did it again! I got a kick butt facial from Pur Salon for only $35! You can choose from an hour facial for $35, Full Head of Highlights $70, Eyelash Extensions $99 or Keratin Straightening for $150. I chose the facial because they have one for sensitive skin which makes facials difficult for me at times. Once i went to the website I saw that the prices at Pur are extremely reasonable. I have to stop looking at these sites before I go broke!! If you want to get your own facial or just check out what deals Living Social has for you click here!

Sephora Skincare Faves For 2012

Sephora has some amazing skincare items in general but for the beginning of 2012 here are some product highlights that will make you and your skin happier for the year to come!

Three Days Only: VIP Members get Free Shipping on all orders. 1/13 – 1/16. Code: SHIP4VIB, Inc.

Over the Christmas holiday I finally checked this site out after a few friends and family members suggested it. Beware once you log on it is next to impossible to get off. The first night I spend like 4 hours searching and trying to remember every book I’ve ever read to add it to my “Read” books list. Then you are bombarded (in a good way) with lists and selections of books you might want to add to your “To Read” list. Then you get to show off what book or books you are currently readying in your “Reading” list. I spent soo long looking through potential book club possibilities as well as for in between our book club meetings that I racked up over 300 books to read already!
You can add friends from faceboook, twitter or e-mail addresses and see your friends lists, get recommentations and even join other book clubs!
My absolute fave part of this site is you can set a goal for yourself for the year. I haven’t found a way to set my 2012 goal yet because it is still on 2011 which is a little annoying but I can wait a day or two I suppose. I love the idea of setting a book reading goal. As you add books to your “Read” list you can see how many books you have left to read to meet your goal for the year.
I often go in and out of being really into reading. I will read four or five books non-stop and take a break for a few months. I would like to stop doing that and maybe it will keep me to only watching the television whist I work out which is another goal of mine.
Bottom line it is probably one of the coolest/easiest sites I have run into a while. It can also make you feel smarter than you thought after you see all of the books you have logged and maybe show off some of your fanciness to friends by “claiming” you have read many of the classics.

10 Super Fun Kids Gifts for The Holidays

I am almost finished shopping for the holidays and I couldn’t be happier. In my searches for the children in my life I happen upon some of the coolest stuff I have seen in a while! I decided to give you the list because not only are these items beyond reasonably priced they are hella cool!

Fashion Design Studio I thought I was cool when my mother got me a little sewing machine, fabric and thread so I could design my own Barbie clothes but this goes all out!! I kind of want this for myself now! This is great for your budding fashionista or fashionistor! Give the kids a chance to be creative. Besides being awesome this will totally keep your little one occupied for hours and we know that is the key to a good gift!

Doctor Dreadful Stomach Churner I’ve seen a commercial for Doctor Dreadful and I’m not gonna lie the stuff looks super fun! This is super fun for that kid you know that is all into bugs and grossing people out! It is kind of a science lab they can eat! Gross out little girls all you want!

Scavanger Hunt For Kids As a kid and even as an adult I loved scavanger hunts! This is even a little educational which is a plus whenever you are purchasing children’s presents. The double plus is this is an indoor hunt soooo the kids can stay warm and cozy while playing and not sitting in front of the television.

Enchanted Fairy Garden Kit I really just put this on here because I want it and I think it is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen! You can grow your own magical garden! I would have died for this when I was a little lady!

Snow Dino Decoration Kit How fun is this seriously! This kit comes with your very own dino decor to add to any snow creation you kid wants to make. There are other sets as well but this is a gift that could be reused over the years which gives you more bang for your buck.

Snow Ball Blaster This is another gift only good if you leave somewhere that has snow but either way I totally wish I had one of these when I was a kid! Not only does it shoot snow balls but it holds 3 for you! You can kick butt with this thing. I kind of think this is also good for that grown-up kid you know. Most boys/men enjoy any kind of gun right?

Hog Wild Spinning Ice Cream Cone I love this!!! I know ice cream is probably the last thing on anyones mind in the cold months but how cool/fun is this!! Another great price of $7.97!! The only set back is you can’t choose the color. Other than that this is awesome for tons of reasons.

Hot Wild Spinning Fork I actually got this for my father but I know a few people who have purchased this for their children and it is super fun! The spinning fork is excellent for pasta’s or for that child that doesn’t like to eat. The Hog Wild Spinning Fork can help keep them interested.

Microwavable S’mores MakerI love S’mores!! I know kids love them too! Now they can make them year round and without a huge mess involved! This is great for any kid at only $7.20 you can get it for a child you aren’t too fimiliar with or for grab bags and secret santas for the kids.

Hog Wild Moo Mixer This is soooo cool! You push the button and it mixes your chocolate milk for you! Yes, I know you could just use a spoon but a kid would think this was awesome! I think it is pretty awesome myself!

Best Salt Scrub Ever

Trader Joes Lavender Salt Scrub
Trader Joes Lavender Salt Scrub


I really can’t believe how long it has taken me to try Trader Joe’s Lavender Salt Body Scrub.  I pass it by every week saying I try it next time and never do because I don’t want to be disappointed as I have regularly been for quite a few years now.  I finally worked up the courage and am in love! I used to purchase the same kind of scrub from Bath and Body Works or The Body Shop before their scrubs were $30 for a 6.8ozs of scrub that isn’t as effective as it used to be! I have been looking for a scrub of this caliber for a very long time and finally have found it at Trader Joe’s. I knew good ol’Joe would never let me down at only $6.00 for a big heaping jug bring it on!!

I couldn’t wait to use it. After slopping it on my skin felt amazing. If you are not used to oil based scrubs please be advised that if you use this scrub you should either mix it with shower gel or use shower gel after your scrub so you can get the oil off. I read some other reviews and people complained about the oil but if you are an experienced scrub user as myself you know better. If you have time to sit around in your bathrobe after you use the scrub or even put lotion on right after you will be OK.

I absolutely love this scrub. I have been dying for an actual salt scrub for so long (that didn’t cost an arm and a leg for a dallop). I do make my own but I wanted a responsible back up and refuse to purchase from Bath and Body or The Body Shop anylonger. There is no reason a body scrub should cost more than $6 if it is mostly natural ingredients!

I say right on Trader Joe’s! You have made me soo happy and will continue using your Lavender Salt Scrub until your recipe changes or price goes up!
