A Wake Up Story (2015 Update)

Know your labels!! Comeclean Campaign

            Did you know that the law doesn't required disclosure on cleaning products ?Well, they don't   Scary right ? I never really realized it until one day I was looking for a certain ingredient in a soap and there was no ingredients anywhere to be found. This was concerning for me since my family has quite a few people with sensitive skin and so fourth. We are usual user of unscented or gentle cleaning products. Its important for not only us but everyone to know whats going into their bodies. A lot of allergic reactions come from products our body cant handle on the skin. Staying with organic and natural products is always the best route to go to avoid unwanted ingredients but,be careful! since there are some products that claim the title organic but isn't quite organic or in some situations natural either. There is a wonderful way to stand up for this and make manufactures disclose their ingredients on their products being sold and that my friends is supporting the  Comeclean Campaign and be aware of the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act ( H.R. 5205).Not sure of who to trust ? Well, theres many Seventh Generation being one of them that fully states whats in their products. Check them out here ------> http://www.seventhgeneration.com/ingredients-glossary Further more signing the act takes it just a step farther that's greatly appreciated.

Let your voice be heard and be in the know of whats going into your body.

Review:Purely fun leave in and 3in1


Review:Purely fun leave in and 3in1..I received these products free of charge. The big bottle I had already received from the company when they launched it to test ..we've been using for a month now and 
I actually like this product.It smells good...it conditions her hair well and the leave in is good so far ..we used it first time today after washing her hair with the 3in1..not bad at all..awesome lather and it retains some of her curls..as for the leave in so far I like it it's not sticky and it smells like the 3in1 and a little bit goes a long way.

Sparkling Lemon Ice Mountain Spring Water


I had the opportunity to review this sparkling natural spring water in lemon flavor. This water was a toss up for me. I enjoyed it but I cant say I loved it. Although its surely a thirst quencher I prefer like a peach or strawberry flavor or even grape. When you first open it the fizz is mesmerizing and the bubbles are great ! Open slowly though because I defiantly almost made a mess from the instant fizz attack. I would say this would be great cold over ice and maybe add some fruit in it for a simple delicacy. I did try this warm which could be the reason I didn't care for it much. The size of the bottle I received was easily enough for two people to share at 16.9 fl oz .Best part about this drink is its just 3 ingredients.

Elegance Pre-Day 2 What we did today

Honestly, today's lesson almost never happened until my timer application let me know that nothing was logged in for Elegance. I'm using quite a bit of resources for her this year to get the job done so shes super ready for first grade next year. We started off with a refresher with her I want to start each lesson off with Singing the Alphabet following with the Letter of the day and is sound. Following that we did Time4learning lanuage and Math,Easy Peasy primer 1 day 9&10, Easy Peasy primer 2 day 2 &3,and ABC Mouse 3 lesson plan self directed. We did no more than 1 hour of self paced work. Along with these homeschooling curriculum's there's extra work which we call it "Fun Doodles" that if I feel she needs a little more than I will do each fun doodle.  She's getting the hang of how each lessons goes more each day.I think Time4learning definitely is going to work out well for her.

NeilMed Naspira Oral-Aspirator




I recently had the opportunity to review the NeilMed Naspira Oral-Aspirator it came with a cute little green mesh bag which was awesomely great! It came in handy because you could carry it in that bag in your purse or a diaper bag with out it getting contaminated. The oral aspirator itself is very easy instruction wise to use ,and its pretty easy to use on the child. This piece comes apart very easy for cleaning .The tube is a nice unfortunately, for me the mucus got stuck every time which made it sort of a pain for a moment.You can also use this as just the bulb itself which I  highly would recommend because the flexible tip makes it easy to insert and clean the nasal area. I know a lot of parents clean the nose while laying down but, what I find that's more effective is laying the baby down and kind of securing the head on your arm that way everyone is comfortable and baby may not notice that lift which hopefully helps less moving.I wouldn't recommend this for older infants since they move way more, the aspirator may not work as well. Now, for the smaller infants I'd defiantly give this a hardy Go!  I think that this is the next best thing for those parents that hate the traditional bulb.

Such a beautiful way God remains faithful ..My rambling...

I haven't been posting frequently like I used to and I should do it more. There's so much that I have to talk about and share with those near and far. Whether anyone reads my post or not or even if its just one person that's okay. Today is such a beautiful day as I sat in front of my kitchen window I just sat here and thought about how blessed I am to be here how I can provide for my children and those whom I vividly care for and just the strength to say: "I can.!". What as blessing it is to secure such a meaningful smile on a face. That feeling of its defiantly okay no matter how difficult it may get I can and will prosper. That will power that even if my mind lets me go farther than I can grasp that my heart will travel me further to no return of doubt. To know that God loves me, and that love will never cease. To realize I'm his story,his trial ,and his oath. Sometimes you have to just sit back and appreciate what God has given you ,and see he has provided you with so much more than we thank him for. We all have started with nothing but, look around now and just look what he has established for us. My outlook was, Why me ? Why do I have to struggle? Now, I see its not a struggle its a battle not to be fought but a battle to be resurfaced and won. Its not a struggle its merely his way of concluding me in bountiful passage of trials and tribulations that is a choice for me to learn it and earn it.Just the beauty of outside amazes me of how awesome he is and how graceful he is. I truly appreciate these days he has given me, just inhaling the air makes me so warm inside because I'm Breathing .. I'm Alive.Something that stood out to me today was a few verses from some bible study I was doing this morning but, one that really just hit me hard was Corinthians 12:9-10
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 

10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
I have read this a few times and each time this verse has just become more and more relevant to me .Such a small verse with such big meaning.Lastly , I was reading Ephesians not to mention how powerful the words are in there but, what verse caught me there was Ephesians 3:16 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being. Read that a few times and let it grab you let it enlighten you. I took some time out this morning and I've been trying to everyday just to take some time out my day to talk to the man upstairs.I'm blessed for this day and for those to come.
