Phytoceramides 350mg - Skin Rejuvenation Formula review #schwartzbioresearch

I received a complimentary Phytoceramides 350mg - Skin Rejuvenation Formula by Schwartz Bioresearch in order to facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are my own. 

I'm always looking for ways to rewind the clock with my looks. I am 50+, and I want to look my best. I was so excited to be chosen to try this product, and it's manufactured in the USA. I take one capsule a day, and I've not had any negative side effects. Phytoceramides help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve the structural integrity of the skin. Used in Japan for centuries, and good for so many things. Taking phytoceramides orally restores the natural outer layer of the skin. You should see your skin begin to soften and smooth out in about 3-4 weeks. I've already noticed my skin seems more hydrated. I am looking forward to seeing the end results. Check out the description. I highly recommend this brand and product. It's good for me!

Yes, I admit it, I'm a beauty product junkie. I love to try various beauty items at this stage in my life, 50+. The Radha Beauty Intensive Youth Eye Gel is amazing. My skin needs all the help it can get, and I am so excited to have been offered this product. This eye gel moisturizes, firms, reduces eye bags, dark circles, and puffiness. The eye gel is 99% natural and 75% organic. It's safe for all skin types.

I found this eye gel goes on easy, and can be used under makeup. I apply the gel twice per day, morning and night. I use this all over my face, and even on the backs of my hands, and neck. I don't like that crepe paper look, and this gel has worked to help reduce that look. My eye area looks softer and smoother with some lift to the eyelids. The eye gel does not clog pores, and I feel good about using this it. There are no parabens, sulfates or alcohol. I really do appreciate a eye gel like this, and highly recommend it. 

You can find Radha Beauty Intensive Eye Gel on Amazon.

Valentia's Even Glow Serum - Vitamin C Serum For Face - Review

I received this product free from Valentia Skin Care through the BuView review program in exchange for an honest opinion. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

The Valentia's Even Glow Serum-Vitamin C Serum for Face by Valentia Skin Care is amazing. I love this serum, and it works for me. I have this addiction to beauty products, and I was so happy to be chosen to try this brand and product. This serum comes in a glass bottle (with dropper) inside a box. There is also one complimentary PDF - Age Defying Facial Treatments (20 Recipes).

I started to use this serum one morning, and I love it. I use it twice per day, morning and night. I use it on my face and neck area, and have had positive results. I am 50+ years old, and try very hard to keep a more youthful complexion. This serum helps to boost collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases glow and radiance, and evens skin tone. The serum absorbs quickly, and I love how moisturized my facial skin looks now. No more flakes or dull looking complexion. My cheeks are rosy, but in a good way. I look healthier, and feel great using this product.

Some very nice ingredients:
RESISTEM (Plant Stem Cells)

I get some great anti-aging action using this product. I highly recommend it.

As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of this product.

I love cooking for my family, and we try to eat healthy daily. I was so excited to be chosen to try Harvestland® products. They offer this amazing line of chicken, turkey and pork in various choices.

We have tried the Fresh Ground Turkey Burgers, Fresh Ground Turkey, and Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast.  I am so happy with how my recipes using these products turned out. The meat looks fresh, smells fresh, and the taste is fresh. The chicken and turkey remind of something grandma would have had on the farm. I am going to try the pork next, and I know it will be just as healthy and tasty. 

I am going to keep buying Harvestland® products, and I feel so good about serving this brand to my family, and friends. I've had nothing but great compliments on my recipes using the chicken and turkey. There are many items to choose from, and I just know you'll love this brand as much as we do. Happy Smile! 

Just the facts:

•All chickens are raised on family farms with very strict USDA Process Verified programs, which ensures that the chickens are fed all-vegetarian diets with no animal by-products, raised cage-free, and are never given any antibiotics, ever.

•Raised to the same standards as their chicken, HARVESTLAND® turkeys are fed an all-vegetarian diet with no antibiotics, steroids or hormones.*

•Pork is the latest addition to the HARVESTLAND® brand. Their hogs are raised on family farms in the Midwest and are also fed an all-vegetarian diet with no antibiotics, hormones or steroids.*

•Harvestland also offers USDA-certified organic chicken. These chickens are raised without antibiotics on free-range, organic farms and are fed an all-vegetarian diet of certified organic ingredients.

•The HARVESTLAND® product line includes fresh chicken, turkey, and pork products, as well as a variety of fully-cooked refrigerated, frozen, and deli meats. Prices vary based on the retailer.

Cooking the Sauce

In a 4 1/2 quart pot/pan brown the ground turkey over medium heat.

Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened.

Add tomato paste and crushed tomatoes, stirring until all is combined.

Add chicken broth to thin it down a little bit.

Add spices, butter, and salt and pepper and allow to simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes (just long enough to boil the water and cook the pasta!).

Taste and adjust seasonings to preference.

We poured the sauce over cooked spaghetti noodles. I used whole grain noodles.

A great cup of coffee starts with the beans, and we have a checklist to make sure the factory is rolling out the very best cup of coffee we can. We hand-inspect the coffees before and after roasting to make sure they meet our standards. We're just as meticulous in the way we grind our beans as in the way we perform our selection process. The grinding technique is one of the most important factors that contributes to the high-quality taste of Java Factory coffee. Our roasting system ensures a smooth, full-bodied taste that’s never bitter or acidic even in the darker roasts. Each of the coffees are expertly roasted so the beans have a rich, well-balanced flavor. We scrutinize each of our single-serve cups for consistency, making sure every cup is filled precisely with the specified amount of coffee grounds to give it optimal flavor. Finally, we hand-check every completed cup. If it’s not perfect, it’s not going anywhere. You could say we’re obsessed with perfection. But, at Java Factory, we like to think that we’re just crazy about our coffee.

Max Lucado’s book, Treasury of Bedtime Prayers Review and $10.00 Appreciation Certificate Giveaway. #Fcblogger, #BeforeAmen, and #Pray

I received this book from Family Christian to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

I feel prayer is very important, and teaching children how to pray to God is a beautiful thing within our family. I received this Treasury of Bedtime Prayers book written by Max and Denalyn Lucado, and it's so wonderful! It's beautifully illustrated by Lisa Alderson, and I think all children will love this book. There are prayers for bedtime, or for anytime a reader wishes. We always say grace before meals, and have prayer time. We teach the love of God, so teach the children how to pray! Giving thanks is a joyous part of the morning, prayers are said anytime of day or night. It's always a good thing! This would make a beautiful gift for a child or grandchild.

You can purchase the book here: Family Christian

This book is divided into sections with gorgeous poems and prayers. 

Good Morning, God
God, You are Great!
My Family and Friends
In My Play and Through the Day
My Mealtime Prayers
God Takes Care of Me
Teach me, God
Prayers for Special Days
Thank you, God!
Good Night, God. 

This collection of classic prayers, as well as brand-new prayers by Max and Denalyn Lucado, will help parents who want to make prayer a daily part of their children's lives.
Prayer is the foundation of a believer's life. This collection of prayers from Max and Denalyn Lucado offers parents a resource to teach little ones how to talk to God. This prayer collection includes classic prayers that have been updated for today's young readers, introductory stories for each section, as well as twenty new prayers for little ones written by Max and Denalyn.
Max and Denalyn open the book with an expanded introduction that instructs parents on teaching their children to pray. A helpful prayer builder taken from Max's trade book Before Amen teaches kids that there are four different kinds of prayers: worship, trust, compassion, and gratitude. This collection of new and classic children's prayers are divided into ten sections. Children will find it easier to learn to pray with examples showing that prayer is a dialogue with God for all times. Beautiful art by Lisa Alderson complements the keepsake style of the book.
It's never too early to lay a strong foundation for a child's faith, and the Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers will help parents do just that.
I am giving away a $10.00 Appreciation Certificate
