Valentina Even Glow Serum- Review

It is unfortunate, that our skin is subjected to extensive trauma daily thanks to pollutants in our environment, stress, and ingredients in the cosmetics we use each day.
I am all about using natural products on my skin, and was pleased to have the opportunity to try Even Glow Serum by Valentina skin care. The formulation of this product has been researched extensively, and all natural ingredients have been exclusively chosen to create a premium product.

A Vitamin C base combined with a blend of super skin oils has been shown to result in
a powerful antioxidant treatment for the skin.

Valentina's Even Glow Serum practices the 4 R's concept:
  • Repair
  • Refresh
  • Renew
  • Restore
You will notice the difference each time you catch your reflection.

 Valentina Even Glow Serum contains amazing natural ingredients:
  • Vitamin C-helps to jumpstart the body's immune system, while keeping skin firm, smooth and youthful. Vitamin C also reduces the toll that sun exposure takes on the skin.
  • Organic Rosehip Seed Oil-enhances the Vitamin C base while providing essential antioxidants
  • Organic Buckthorn Oil-enhances the Vitamin C base while helping to promote skin hydration and protect skin from signs of aging
  • Resistem-Plant Stem Cells that provide protection from stress-related aging and promote skin  to regenerate and aids in skin detoxification
  • Hyaluronic Acid- A botanical that draws moisture from the environment and onto the skin's surface-known as the most effective moisturizing agent due to it's ability to penetrate deeply and activate collagen providing a more youthful appearance
  • Green Tea Extract- Contains catechins which contribute to the anti-inflammatory/irritant benefits of this beauty product

I loved this product, it was very simple to use- Just a light shake to mix ingredients in the small bottle and apply to a clean/dry face-I applied to my face and neck and let dry before applying any other type of moisturizer to my skin. I used the product daily, and after approximately 5 days, began to see visible results:
  • Skin tone was definitely more even, I noticed that a few of my darker spots were quickly fading
  • My skin took on  a renewed brightness, I looked like I had a full night's rest, even when I had not
  • Moisture had been restored to my skin, the winter weather has dehydrated my face for the most part-I noticed that my skin no longer appeared dry or ashy
  • My skin appeared refreshed  and a lot more smooth to the touch
 I noticed a significant difference in my skin after using this product for a few weeks. I was pleasantly surprised by the results and would recommend this EASY natural ingredient infused beauty regimen to everyone!

Enjoy Mrs. Cavanaugh's World Famous Chocolates!

I had the tremendous opportunity to try something absolutely delectable. Mrs. Cavanaugh's World Famous Chocolates. I love the inspiring story behind the recipe that was the jumpstart to Marie's very own candy business empire! Marie's Aunt sent her a pecan-roll recipe, and Marie gave it her own special touch and started dipping chocolates in addition. Friends and neighbors were delighted, and strongly urged Marie to start her very own candy business. With the help of her husband and five children, it became much easier to keep up with the high demand. In 1972 the family moved to Utah to dive into their new, lucrative venture, which is known today as Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies.

I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into these chocolates.. the caramel and cherry cordial were my favorites.  I enjoyed every single milk chocolate bite. I had to basically hide them from my husband, and everyone else in the house. I truly did not want to share this much deliciousness.

So many choices, I don't think anyone can eat just one! I enjoyed several.
Now.. THIS is quality chocolate.. are you hypnotized yet?
I eventually had to share with Mr. Parks, because he was pouting.
These clusters were at the top of the list!
You can enjoy all of these amazing flavors in the 1lb box:
Most Famous Chocolates:
  • Cherry Cordial
  • Brady
  • Caramel
  • Penoche
  • White Trinidad
  • Mindy Mint
  • Toffee
  • Peanut Cluster
  • Cherry Almond
  • Light Cavalier
  • French Mint
  • Lemon Creme
  • Rough Rum
  • Orange Creme
  • Helen
  • Almond Cluster
  • Rough Delight
  • Haystack
The candy bars were exquisite, we enjoyed these sweet treats like nobody's business. The flavors I received were:
  • Caramel
  • White Chocolate Almond Coconut
  • Mindy Mint
  • Dark Chocolate Almond
These bars were so good and literally melted in my mouth. They also would
 make the perfect gift for any occasion, or just for your own personal sweet satisfaction.

There are so many different varieties of chocolates and other sweet treats to enjoy thanks to Mrs. Cavanaugh, you are even able to create you own box with your favorite selections. You are also able to go on a Factory Tour scheduled by appointment Monday-Friday. If you are ever heading to Salt Lake, Utah please stop in and say hello and get yourself some World Famous treats! Or.. you can order them online here MRSCAVANAUGH'SWORLDFAMOUSCANDIES

Mary J Blige-The London Sessions Album Review

I have been a dedicated Mary J  Blige fanatic since the days of her infamous albums:
  • What's the 411
  • My Life
  • Share My World
  • No More Drama
  • Mary
Reminiscing takes me back to the emotional dimensions I would visit in my mind, listening to stimulating ballads that frequently imitated my own unbalanced life.
Mary J. Blige, poised and fearless, takes us to another level with her explosive contemporary album-The London Sessions. UK's own Sam Smith, Disclosure and Emeli Sande are a few of the brilliant artists that conspired with Mary to create this innovative masterpiece.

I was excited to listen to this album with no interruptions-listed below are some of my personal favorites. The Mary on this album sounded revived and restored. The tone and beats proved more healing and therapeutic than on past albums. I found myself genuinely and attentively listening to the words of each song.. My mood improved, I felt pleased and truly captivated by this unique soulful/ UK-esque creation.
  • Therapy
  • Right Now
  • Long Hard Look
  • Worth my time

Mary J. known respectfully as the "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul" modestly claims:
  •  Eight multi-platinum albums
  •  Nine Grammy Awards including 31 nominations
  •  A 2012 Golden Globe nomination
  •  Four American Music Awards
This album introduces an impressive concoction of hip-hop soul and ingenious artistic talent proving to the world, that Mary J. Blige has truly evolved. The London Sessions is an exceptional album with a release date of December 2nd on Capitol Records.

If you would like to pre-order The London Sessions, please follow the links below:
