My L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Review

I used my first BB cream recently, it was L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. I actually had never heard of BB cream before and I know some of you haven't either so I looked it up; Wikipedia says BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage. Specifically,  L'Oreal says their BB cream hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. All while transforming to the perfect shade and delivering nutrients to your skin.  L'OrĂ©al Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. and a little bit really goes a long way so the bottle will last quite a while. It is available in four shades and is sold at food and drug stores nationwide.
I have been using it now for about 1 1/2 weeks now and I love the way it feels and looks. It really does even out my skintone and blend perfectly. It has a very lightweight finish witch I really like, you can barely tell you are wearing it and it has no greasy feel.  Now that I know the benefits from using it I will continue to buy it, my skin needs all the help it can get, I have many scars and very dull, uneven tone.

I encourage you to find out more about this great product by visiting their websit@ L'

Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties

I was recently given the opportunity to try the new Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties thanks to  They sent me a great kit which included information on the patties, a coupon for one free bag, and six $4.00 off coupons to share with friends.

 I took my free coupon to the grocery store and picked out the beef and cheese flavored patties. I told my sixteen year old daughter to try them for me because she is the burger "specialist" in our house.  She actually told me she didn't think they would be any  good but she would give them a try.
She put one in the microwave and in less than two minutes she had a great burger.  She LOVED it!  She said she can't wait to have another one.

The patties are made with 100% beef, seasoned to perfection and fully cooked, then flash frozen to lock in the great flavor. Great when you don't have time to fire up the grill!
The patties are available in three classic flavors: Beef Patty, Beef & Cheese Patty and Beef & Onion Patty. They are located in the frozen meat or frozen snacks section for a suggested retail price of $8.29.
For a great burger in just a couple minutes give Ball Park Flame Grilled Beef Patty a try today.

I was given a coupon for a free bag of Ball Park Flame Grilled Beef Patty but all opinions in this review are my own.

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

I received a new product from Rubbermaid to try out, it is the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler from their recycling product line. My first thought was, anything that makes recycling easier and more convenient has to be a plus. I was right, I love the way the product fits so easily inside of a cupboard and no one has to see it. It is a 5 gallon bag and can hold up to 36 12-ounce cans. It has a leak-proof liner and is machine washable to make it easier to clean up any spills in it. It has a convenient handle that makes transporting it easier. You can purchase them directly from their website at and at Meijer stores.

I would reccomend this product for sure for anyone who recycles.  Make sure to enter my giveaway if you live in the U.S. or Canada.

I was given this product by Rubbermaid and all opinions are my own.

Simple Skincare Review


 I went to my local Walgreens to ask their beauty adviser about the new Simple product line but, my Walgreens did not have a beauty adviser so I could not complete this part of the review.  A couple weeks later I was sent a free, full size, sample of the Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub from Simple and SheSpeaks. I have used the product about three times now and my daughter has used it a couple as well. We are both very pleased with the results, it leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean and also very smooth.  The Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub reveals brighter and more even textured skin and it has added vitamins: Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E. The exfoliator in it is actually rice granules. Simple products have no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants therefore it is great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
 I would recommend the Simple Skincare line to anyone who cares about their skin.

All opinions are my own and I received the product for free through and Simple for writing this review of the product.  

Mmmm Ghirardelli

I received a full size sample of Ghirardelli's Milk & Truffle squares through SheSpeaks. Today I have been curled up on the couch with a blanket and my computer and what better way to enhance it than to open these up and bite into the rich, creamy, chocolate that just melts on your tongue?  I love them, they are just the right blend of milk and dark chocolate. These gourmet, made in the US, chocolates are amazing. I encourage all you chocolate lovers to give them a try today.
