Nutra-Lift® Simply Superb Shampoo Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I have had the most unruly hair over the last year or so. Since I started working at a job that requires me to pull my hair back on a daily basis, I have notices remarkable damage and hair fall too. My hair was dry and I was finding it everywhere!

I started to use the Nutra-Lift® Simply Superb Shampoo every time I washed my hair. After just a few washes I noticed that my hair was softer and more manageable. I was even able to get a comb through my hair after it was washed.

Now I am not saying after just a few washes I had perfect hair, but I will say that after finishing the entire bottle of Nutra-Lift® Simply Superb shampoo, I had much healthier and more manageable hair. The dullness was gone and so were the knots that formed everyday.

Product Description:
A premium gentle, daily, sulfate free shampoo infused with luxurious pure silk for shiny and vibrant hair. A shampoo that moisturizes and conditions with Goat's Milk. Including a Natural and Organic, delicious blend of aromatic, anti-oxidant rich herbs for a healthy scalp. Especially formulated for people with sensitive skin. Pure and natural for beautiful hair. Many people with eczema, psoriasis, acne, extra dry skin, oily skin, combination skin, or sensitive skin find using goat milk personal care products very beneficial. Great for normal hair. Excellent for dry damaged hair.

Directions for use (Do I really need to write this?):
Directions: Apply a small amount of Simply Superb Shampoo into your hand and gently lather into hair & scalp. Allow to set on hair for up to 30 seconds, so nutrients, moisture & silk can penetrate into hair. Rinse. Repeat if necessary. As with any new product, skin test 24 hours before use.

Time to Show Your Disney Side

Anyone that has kids knows all about Disney. In fact, sometimes I bet you feel like you know every character from every Disney movie made. It is okay, we are all kids at heart!

Show Your Disney Side
Because we all have a little kid hidden inside and secretly we all love the trips with our kids to Disney theme parks, I hosted a Disney @home party. What better way to let the fun (and little kid in us) pour out?

I had so much fun planning and setting up for my Disney Side party. How many ways can you create Disney fun? I made cupcakes and a round cake with white frosting and let the kids decorate them. Remember that creativity and imagination are all part of the Disney fun. I hid Disney characters all over the house and sent the parents and kids on a scavenger hunt with a hidden treasure all set up for the winner of the scavenger hunt.

After a day of fun, food, and drinks, everyone that attended is now ready to plan a group trip to Disneyland.

MIRA Glass Digital Kitchen Scale

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The MIRA Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale that I received is made with a nice white (There are other color options to choose from that may coordinate with your kitchen better) tempered glass that is  4 times stronger than normal glass. Having the scale made out of glass means that when you spill, the clean up is easy. Just wipe it away!

The extra large back lit LCD display makes it easy to see the weight of whatever item you are weighing. You can quikly change the measurements from grams, ounces, or pounds. The Mira digital scale will measure foods from .1 oz. to 11 lbs. (1 gram to 5 kgs) and comew with a 2 year warranty.

When I received my scale, I was not quite sure how I would use it. Then I realized how quick and easy it was to use. I began using it to weigh individual portions of beef and chicken to ensure that my entire family did not over eat high fat foods. In fact, I found it very easy to measure food right after I purchased it from the grocery store. That made it simple to grab just what I needed from the freezer. By doing this, I found that I wasted a lot less food.

Royal Canin Feline Breed Nutrition

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Do you have a cat at home? Is that cat a breed that has special dietary requirments to maintain its health? You may find that you like the Royal Canin cat food line as much as I do.
With a Persian in my home, hair balls are a norm. If the cat is not choking on them, I am picking them off of my clothing.

The Royal Canin Persian food is designed with your cat in mind. A little bit of info from the manufacturer:


A long, luxurious coat, with a dense undercoat, is the hallmark of the Persian cat. PERSIAN contains nutrients which help support the skin’s role as a “barrier” and maintain skin and coat health. Formula enriched with Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA) and Omega 6 fatty acids.

Due to the length and density of their coat, Persian cats routinely swallow a large quantity of hair during grooming. PERSIAN contains fibers which help stimulate intestinal transit and naturally limit hairball formation.

Helps support digestive health, taking into account the Persian’s digestive sensitivity, with highly digestible proteins (L.I.P.*), prebiotics and fibers to help support a balance in the intestinal flora.
* L.I.P.: protein selected for its very high assimilation - Digestive Health - Stool Quality

“Almond 11”, an almond-shaped kibble specially designed to make it easier for the Persian cat to grasp with the underside of the tongue.

With just a small sample size package provided, I could not provide a comprehensive review. Since my picky cat actually ate the sample without any hesitation, I splurged and bought a bigger bag. With that being said, I have noticed a difference in my cats fur. It has more sheen and she does not seems be yarf up bug balls of gooey fluff as often.

I am hoping with a few more weeks of use, I may notice even more of a change.

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The weather is changing and cold and flu season has arrived. Are you ready for that next cold to invade your house? I had the opportunity to try a product that has been around for over 140 years called Pine Bros. Softish throat drops.

I am the first to admit that I am a big baby when it comes to sore throats.The worst part about being a big baby? I had the taste of medicine and I do not like the numb feeling that some of the medicines cause.

I was hesitant to try the Pine Bros. Softish throat drops, but once I opened the package of wild cherry flavored drops, I thought they smelled like a candy and not medicine. The first taste was surprisingly sweet and not medicinal at all. The consistency is a little different than the typical cough drop. It is more similar to a JuJube candy (I am sure I just dated myself). It is not soft like a gummy bear and not hard like a cough drop. It is somewhere in between.

One of the features of the Pine Bros. Softish throat drops is that they are not full of ingredients that you cannot pronounce. In fact the product is all natural. Even the red coloring in the wild cherry flavor is from Elderberries not a dye. In my household, this is a big plus.

My entire household is very happy with the flavors of both the Natural Honey and the Wild Cherry. Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops are a great addition to any home for those not so pleasant sore throats that we all gt once in a while.

Pine Bros. are not only an all natural product, but they are made in the USA and easily found in CVS stores across the country. They are available in Wild Cherry and Natural Honey flavors in both a bag style package or a puck style package.

Over The Mountain and Through the Woods

Disclosure: The Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex Crystals Fresh Mountain Breeze in exchange for a product review. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced by another party.

I was very surprised with the ease and effectiveness of these little crystals. The Purex Complete Crystals are very easy to use because they go in at the start of the wash, I have never used the softeners that have to be added later because I am just too busy to deal with it.

I found that the Fresh Mountain Breeze scent is a nice change of pace from the everyday baby smelling fabric softeners. I loved the way my clothed smelled after placing them in the laundry. (Where is my ability to share scents with my readers?)

All of my clothes came out soft, lightly scented, and static free. I noticed that there were no small oil spots on any of my clothing either. The best part, I know that when using Purex Crystals, I am not removing any fire retardants or moisture absorbancy from any of the items that I wash. 

They are 92% natural and not oil based like other fabric softeners so instead of coating the fabric, the crystals infuse the fabric with softness and a light pleasant scent. Purex Complete Crystals Softeners are safe for all laundry and will not harm, wear down or discolor your fabrics like oil-based softeners. Safe for all fabrics, including baby clothes, athletic wear, towels, and whites. Unlike other
softeners, Crystals WILL:

•Retain your athletic wear’s wicking ability which draws sweat away from your body
•Maintain your towels’ built-in ability to absorb water
•Keep your clothes smelling fresh for weeks, not days!

To celebrate the new Fresh Mountain Breeze scent, Purex is hosting the Over The Mountain and Through the Woods Sweepstakes. You can enter here for chance to win $500 or a coupon for a free bottle of Purex Fresh Mountain Breeze

Purex Crystals are a great way to freshen your laundry with ease. Go check them out for yourself!
