Red Heart - Super Saver - Camo
Do. Not. Buy. This.
I only purchased this because my brother is wanting to go into the Army next year so I thought it would make a nice Christmas present if I made him a scarf. Red Heart sucks. Not all of it, because I highly enjoy some of their other products such as With Love or Boutique. But please, stay away from Red Heart. It is shitty quality that will leave your hands feeling extremely rough and irritable. The yarn is somewhat stiff and is nearly impossible to work with. I know that it is cheaper than most brands, but it is not worth your effort or money you would be saving to work with this piece of crap. Save up and buy quality yarn. Other brands have Camouflage like colors that would work and look a lot better than this.
Verdict: Trick

Bath & Body Works - Signature Coconut: Coconut Pineapple

I am a major fan of everything coconut or pineapple, so this is the perfect scent for me. It smells like the perfect summer vacation on the beach. The scent is soothing. The lotion lingers for hours. The shower gel keeps my skin feeling refreshed and the body mist is wonderful for those little extra doses of aroma. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of fruit and anything beachy. I wish I had gotten more of it when I had the chance.

Verdict: TREAT

NOW Foods Maca 500mg for Reproductive Health
I have had ovarian cysts since I was 18 with random cycles throughout the years. I started taking this back in June and I have had my period every month since. It is such a relief to know that I can finally start getting healthier so I can completely focus on trying to conceive. I highly recommend this because it is a must buy for anyone like me.

Apricot Vanilla - Bath & Body Works
I absolutely adore this body mist! If you are a fan of Apricots you will strongly enjoy this! Although, I don’t smell a lot of vanilla from it, it is still just an over all wonderful scent. It has become my summer scent for 2012.

NOW Foods Maca 500mg for Reproductive Health
I have had ovarian cysts since I was 18. At the most, my periods have been spaced 6 months apart. It has been concerning and disheartening since my husband and I have been trying to conceive since before we even got married. My mother told me about this pill, and I have been taking it for a little over a week now. Not enough time to make a full update on how it has affected me yet, but I plan to make another update within the coming month. As of right now, it makes me extremely tired. I have never been this tired, but I know it is because of the pill.
However, my periods have started to come back more frequently. This year alone I have had them back to back (2 months in a row without a skip). This has made me feel a lot better. I never thought that I would be glad to have a normal period again. I don’t enjoy the pain, but I am a little more hopeful that the cysts are working themselves out.
I have read a lot of reviews about this pill. I take it once a day until July, where I will start taking 2 per day. Quite a few people have had the same problem as me and once they started taking this pill they have become pregnant. This makes me very happy to hear. I can only hope that it will work for me the same way. Keep an eye out for another update on this pill and how I am doing.

Verdict: Not available at this time.

Country Chic Collection from Bath & Body Works

 

This is the perfect spring scent, at least for me, because when I think of spring I think of lemonade. It has a sweet, lemony goodness that my nose and body itch for! (Not literally) There are also notes of wildflowers and a little bit of a musky wood scent to it. The scent lingers for a really long time and it makes my skin feel soft, smooth and extremely clean. I highly recommend this for those of you who like lemon. It is a little strong at first but it grows on you. I also recommend that you go to your nearest Bath & Body Works and try a sample of it before buying it.

Vanna’s Choice – Beige Yarn (123)
I’ve been knitting now for about a year and a half. And the one thing I cannot stand for is rough yarn. I rarely buy yarn online unless I’ve touched it in person or have used it before. Well, I thought I was safe purchasing this brand of yarn because it was so soft in the store and even when it was delivered it was still as soft. However, once I started to make it into a ball, all hell broke loose and this yarn went from smooth to rough in a blink of an eye. It is incredibly itchy on my hands and I feel terrible for making the purchase because I’m making a shawl for my grandmother and she specifically likes smooth and soft things against her skin. Do not be fooled by the claim of it being “soft” and “100% acrylic” on the package, it does not live up to that at all. I can’t decide which is worse, this or Red Heart Super Saver (yuck)! I don’t know if I will make anything out of Vanna’s Choice yarn anymore once my shawl is finished.
If you are ever looking for soft yarn that is 100% Acrylic, check out “I Love This Yarn!”, it is a type of yarn that only Hobby Lobby sells and you can also purchase it from their website if you do not live close enough to one of the stores. That is my go-to yarn that I will be using for all of my other projects.

Anonymous said: Can you tag things as "trick" or "treat" it would be nice to be able to quickly look through items that you didn't think were worth the money.

That is a great idea, thank you!! I went through all of my post and added either “trick” or “treat” and I will continue to do so on all future posts. :)

MORNING BURST® Fruit Infusions™ Facial Hydrating Cleanser with real pineapple
Excuse my language but, oh my fucking god! This is fucking amazing! Back when I lived in GA, my skin would dry out real bad which is weird since I lived in Florida for 15 years before that. Any who, it dried out and I needed something to help it smooth back out. I used Clean and Clear’s earlier version of the Morning Burst, but when I moved to Texas to be with my husband, I lost track of it and completely forgot about it for four years. I saw the commercial for this and my jaw literally dropped they said there was a pineapple one. I am such a sucker for pineapple.
Here is the actual review: I use this pretty much every morning and it makes my face super smooth and feel incredibly fresh. I love that it has pineapple, coconut and real strawberry seeds. My skin feels and looks the healthiest when I use this. It doesn’t dry out my skin at all. I don’t wear makeup, so I don’t know how it does with makeup affected skin. And on the plus side to all of this is how wonderful it smells.

Ms Monster / Spooky Review

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine

Shampoo & Conditioner

Curl Construct Mousse

 

My hair is 100% frustrating. I can never style it unless I cut it real short and I can use styling gel or spray for maybe 2 weeks at the most. My hair is extremely thick and constantly has tangles in it. No one but me can brush my hair because I will be in tears from the first stroke of the brush. It is painfully exhausting both physically and mentally. However, I have finally found a brand of hair products that does wonders for my hair. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine is the best for my type of hair. It is constantly smooth all day and I don’t have to brush it more than twice in one day (once when I wake up and once when I go to bed). I don’t wash my hair every day so it lasts pretty much until I wash my hair again (3-4 days). My hair is so manageable now even when my hair is long so I can use Garnier’s Curl Construct Mousse which helps bring out my natural curls. I highly recommend this brand in any of the categories of hair products. It is also cheap and works way better than most of the high priced hair products.

Merry Mentha Sparkling Apple Cider Lip Shine by C.O. Bigelow
This is such a wonderful lip gloss. It smells more like Hot Apple Cider than Sparkling Apple Cider, but the apples have such a rich tone in this. It makes my lips tingle for about five minutes after I apply it, but it cools down and makes them feel so refreshed. I highly recommend any of their lip shines. They are always the best.
