SAPO Bamboo Charcoal Soap has changed my mind about using bar soap!

Hello,

I hope today finds you well and happy.  I appreciate you stopping by and would love for you to follow my blog through the links on the sidebar.  Thanks!

I am not a bar soap user.  But, I was intrigued by SAPO's bar soap.
This soap is handmade in the USA.  It is certified organic.

I truly love this soap!  I use it on my face and body.  It does not leave my face with that tight dry soap feeling.  It rinses squeaky clean!

I have noticed my arms do not feel dry, they feel moisturized, like I put an oil of them.

This does lather well, and gray bubbles was a new experience for me.   :)  Usually a colored soap still makes white bubbles!

This soap contains activated bamboo charcoal, shea butter, coconut oil, palm oil, sunflower oil and other oils!  No wonder my skin feels moisturized!

To make your bar soap last longer, be sure and store it out of the direct spray of the water.

I am happy with this soap for both face and body and would recommend it to anyone looking to go organic.

Wishing Much Love and Happiness to you all!

Using the Oversized FlexiKold Gel Pack for Pain

Hello!

We are having a major thunder storm.  I love it!  I love seeing the sky lit up with lightening.  And the thunder rolls....

I am going to complain a little here.  I try not to think about it, but I have a lot of pain.  I have had several surgeries, 3 broken bones and fibromyalgia.  I truly have pain from my toes to my neck.  Waahh, I know.  :(   Now, I am not truly complaining to you, but you need to know where I am coming from for this review.

Some people collect figurines; I collect ice packs!  I know for sure I have seven in the freezer right now and there could be more!  A lot more if one counts all the bags of frozen veggies.  Ha!

There have been some nights that I have went to bed with an ice pack on one part of my body and a heating pad on another part.  Yeh, I'm a real fun girl!

Needless to say, I was really happy to be chosen to review the Oversized FlexiKold Gel Cold Pack.  


company photo

This is the largest gel pack I have ever owned.  It covers my whole back area.  It is awesome!

It is thin enough that it is comfortable to lay on, and also it can be wrapped around my lower leg where I have residual pain from a broken tibia, that required 2 surgeries; one to put a plate and screws in and one to take them back out 3 years later.  I so wish I had had this pack when all that was going on, because it was really difficult trying to keep a smaller ice pack in place.

This gel pack gets very cold and stays cold for a good while.  One thing to keep in mind when using a cold pack is:  it is recommended to only apply the cold pack for no more than 20 minutes at a time.  Always keep a cloth between your skin and the pack.  

I know with any surgery I have had, the first thing I was told to do was apply an ice pack.  When I worked as a surgical RN, we put ice packs on our surgery patients while they were still in the recovery room, so if you have a surgery coming up, you for sure want to have this gel pack in the freezer waiting for you.

Natracure has several different types of hot/cold packs.  I encourage you to check out the wide variety they offer.




One can benefit from using a cold pack after exercising, injury or surgery.  They work to decrease inflammation and swelling.

The Oversized FlexiKold Gel Pack may be purchased on the NatraCure web site.

Wishing Much Love and Happiness to you all!

Apricot Kernel Oil

Hi!

I hope today finds you well!  We are all doing great.  Love is in the air!

Some of you may remember that I had surgery in May.  After surgery, my skin took a nose dive.  I don't know what happened to it, but my face was so dry and nasty.  I no likey!  I had never used Apricot Kernel Oil before, so I gave it a go on that mess.  And, it helped!

This is different than serums in that it absorbs fairly quickly, and acts more like a moisturizer.

I wear it under my foundation.  It has no fragrance, that I notice.

This can be used as a massage oil, and also on ones hair.  I kinda burnt the ends of my hair with a curling iron, they felt a lil crispy and had that just burnt smell.  LOL  I applied Apricot Oil to the ends and it really helped.

I like this oil.  I think it works great.

Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

Hi,

Are you a Legend of Zelda Fan?  Do you just like "neat" stuff?  Are you musically inclined?  If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then the Ocarina of Time is for you!


company photo

Isn't it pretty!?  It is made from kiln fired ceramic by musicians.  It is definitely a conversation starter!  

I am not musically inclined.  My Dad says I am the only person he knows that took piano lessons for 10 years and still can't play "Jesus love me."  :)  And.... he's right!

But, I do enjoy making noise with this beautiful instrument.  It comes with a e book to give one some pointers.

Also, after purchase, one receives the option to purchase a holder for it.  It is in the shape of a hand.  


company photo

How neat is that!?  



This is a beautiful blue glaze with gold accents.  As I said, any Legend of Zelda fan, or music lover would really enjoy this.

Ocarina of Time may be purchased on Amazon.

Wishing much love and happiness to you all!

Sea of Darkness - Nancy Drew is in Iceland!

Hello,

Do you consider yourself an amateur sleuth or a master?  Either way, you will find yourself entranced in the world of Nancy Drew!

This is game #32 in the Nancy Drew PC Game Series.  I have several of the series, and they never disappoint.  


company photo

In this game Nancy is in Iceland, solving the mystery of a missing man who may or may not have stolen treasure from a ship. I'm not gonna tell ya!


There are several characters in the game.  Here are a few of them.




The graphics on these games are just the best.  Beautiful scenery and lots to snoop through.

There are games within the game!  Also, there is a hint button should one get stuck. 

Be sure and take advantage of the camera on Nancy's cell phone!  Snap a picture of something you don't know what to do with yet and it makes it easier to find it again.

I love Nancy Drew Games, they challenge my mind and one learns actual facts about whatever country Nancy may be sleuthing in.
Dare to Play!

Nancy Drew Sea of Darkness may be purchased at Her Interactive.

Wishing Much Love and Happiness to you all!!
