VSSportBra test and review

I cant begin to tell you how excited I was to receive the Victoria Secret Vox Box from Influenster

It was so exciting to see the pink box inside

Not a fan of Orange but the Capri were very comfortable
I even got coupons for my friends!!!
(they expired about a week after I received them so most of the friends I gave them to were not able to use them)

Comparing the VS Sport wear to my old brand was a night and day difference. not only was the Victoria Secret Bra more comfortable, but it honestly made me feel and look about a million times better. I literally broke up with my old sports bra and threw it out. I'm very impressed by VS Sport. it gave me the bush to check out the rest of their bras, I even went to the store and got a bra fitting. I was a little shocked that I had been wearing the wrong size.

I was really impressed by how the bra held up during a workout with my girlfriend. She even commented that I looked amazing in what I came in and wanted to know where I got everything from

This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria's Secret products to test and review as part of a contest

Victoria Secret In-Store Experience

I recently made a stop to Victoria Secret to exchange something I didn't think I would really use and to get some new bras that I desperately needed. Despite the fact that I have lost a decent amount of weight the past year, most of my bras seem to not fit right. too big here, not big enough there,poking, pillowing... Uggggg

So the first lady I spoke with seemed absolutely clueless, she had to call the manager several times over the secret service style ear bud while I waited in line. She told me that she needed to speak with the manager and that she would get back to me, so I wondered and shopped, even  got a fitting! I was a little freaked about the idea of getting fitted for a bra, the reality of two quick measurements and being told what size I should look at seemed to easy to be true, so I tried a few bras on, what i normally get and what she told me to get... Nothing like getting proved wrong by a tape measure... such is life, but now I know, lol

I finally found a strapless, multi function bra that seems to be the perfect size. I was really excited but felt like a creeper taking my own pic in a lingerie store

I seriously love how all the bras are displayed. Why haven't I ever taken the time to shop here before....
(I blame my mom, she always told me they sell the same stuff at kmart for a 3rd of the price... NOT)

I am so happy with my purcheses and my visit to Victoria Secret. The Staff wasn't the best, they all seemed pretty clueless(except for the lady with her ruler that "sized" me)

Garcinia Cambogia Supreme Product Review

I think just about everyone has heard about Garcinia Cambogia by now, so when I was given an opportunity to try a bottle and review it I just had to give it a go.

The Life & Food Brand Garcinia Cambogia bottle holds 180 Capsules. Containing 80% HCA and 1400 Mg per servings, compared to 1000 Mg servings in most leading brands.
The Life & Food brand claims that this is their highest HCA concentration Garcinia Cambogia product. Completely THIRD PARTY tested, and verified for HCA standardization

Using only premium quality extracts containing hydroxycitric acid (HCA) produced from choice Indian and Asian Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind of the highest quality possible. Studies show HCA in Garcinia can help inhibit glucose absorption as well as promote a balanced, lighter mood by boosting Serotonin levels without the jitters.

Our products are sourced and tested to make sure they are of the HIGHEST quality and bio-availability in the market. Absolutely NO fillers, NO soy, WHEAT, eggs, fish, stimulants or any additives.

This product is stimulant free and also promote a balanced, lighter mood by boosting Serotonin levels without giving you the jitters as some weight loss supplements do. Allergen-free, our product uses a vegetable capsule with no fillers or binders, mixing Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind with calcium and potassium for added absorption your body needs.

Made and manufactured in world class GMP certified facilities in the USA. This product is free of contaminants, fillers, binders, or toxins. Quality and safety are a primary focus for all Life & Food branded products.

HCA is the key component reduces glucose absorption there by leading to fat reduction for those with high glucose levels. We've formulated to optimal dosage helps suppress the appetite while burning fat. It has also shown to improve blood lipid leves, help reduce fate production, curb emotional eating and help improve mood by raising the "feel good" hormone serotonin. It is clinically proven to block the stress hormone cortisol, too.

Garcinia Cambogia Extract contains 80% pure hydroxycitric acid (HCA) derived from choice Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind. Potassium acts as a natural diuretic, helping to eliminate water weight. The calcium may increase the body's natural fat burning metabolism. Each capsule uses a vegan and vegetarian safe vegetable-based gelatin. The Life & Food brand is free of fillers, artificial flavors and additives. Allergen-friendly capsules are free of wheat, dairy, peanut, soy, shellfish and egg free. Other Ingredients: Vegetable Cellulose (Veggie Cap).

As a dietary supplement, take two (2) capsules once a day. For maximum strength, take two (2) capsules twice daily. For best results take capsules 20-30 min before a meal with 8 oz. of water or as directed by your physician. Do not exceed four (4) capsules a day.
This was one of those pills that looked harder to swallow then it was. I had absolutely no problems swallowing both capsules at once.
Any one that has ever tried a weightloss pill knows the jittery unerving feeling you get from most of them. God forbid you take them on an empty stomach. SO this one your supossed to take half an hour before eating. The first time I took it I was fully prepared with a box of crackers and a tall glass of water. I went about my late morning routine figuring I'd know when the 30 minutes had passed and have to eat before the time had passed. I was shocked when that wasnt the case and I felt completely fine. I havent noticed a huge drop in weight but I have noticed my pudge has started to reduce

No fillers, No junk, No Jitters, I'm sold

Number One Nutrition Advanced Probiotic Review

I received a free bottle of Number One Nutrition Advanced Probiotic for the purposes of review. I had read about the health benefits of using probiotics. As I'm trying to focus on becoming a healthier, happier me, I thought giving this a try would be a good idea.

First Things First, What are Probiotics:
Probiotics are good bacteria that perform a very important role in our digestive, metabolic and immune systems. They produce enzymes that break down the food we eat, regulate vitamin intake and convert sugars to the essential nutrients our bodies need.
Taking a Probiotic can help with
- Digestive problems
- Constipation
- Auto Immune Disorders
- GI Inflammation
- Fatigue
- Irritability

Number One Nutrition Advanced Probiotic says their product helps as follows:
- Drastically improve your digestive health
- Balance your intestinal flora.
- Improve your mood.
- Break down allergy causing proteins.
- Accelerate your fat loss.

I always like to look at the companies website, so you might too

   Premium Dietary Supplements
   FDA Approved
   Made in the USA

Number One Probiotic Supplement is all natural and the company offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
At first look the pills seem a little large, but I found them very easy to swallow.
10 Billions CFU's seems to be a good amount of CFU's for a probiotic. It also seems to be void of any unwanted fillers. I took this for a few weeks and I am happy to say that I had pretty good results. I seemed to loose a lot of belly fat/bloat(that I didn't expect) and I also noticed that I wasn't as fatigued after taking them for the first week. I'm definitely going to look into taking this product regularly

UNi 100% Rosehip Seed Oil Review

I received a free bottle of  Rosehip Seed Oil by UNi for the purposes of review. I had read about the benefits of using  Rosehip Seed Oil and had my first surgery coming up so I jumped at the opportunity to review it.

I really like how thick and moisturizing the oil was. the only downside I could really find was that I didnt really like the smell. That being said, My best friend really likes the smell and ordered some shortly after using some of mine. being that this is the first time Ive had any sort of real scars or surgery I dont have anything to compare it to, but I can tell you that my surgeon was very impressed by how nicely my incisions were healing. Outside of the smell, I would definitely suggest Rosehip oil to anyone looking for a great moisturizing oil especially for scars or stretch marks

The Disgusting Little Things That People Do

The Disgusting Little Things That People Do: http://youtu.be/5c5t9kP04dw

Omg! I can't even start to explain how poor people's manners have gotten. It's like nobody teaches their children etiquette anymore. The world doesn't want to hear you eating your food or sucking on your drink or sucking the food out of your teeth. It's just ridiculous.

Chew with your mouth closed. Hygiene is taken care of in the bathroom. And for Pete's Sake, clean up after yourself!

Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me Review

I received a free bag of Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me for the purposes of review. I had read about the health benefits of using Matcha and have always LOVED Matcha Ice cream so I jumped at the opportunity to review it. Since I'm also trying to focus on becoming a healthier, happier me, this really seemed like a perfect product for me

Some of the amazing Benefits for Matcha:
Matcha provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy as it acts as both a stimulant and a relaxant. This is ideal for focusing on whatever the day throws your way.

Consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expediture.

​Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from harmful UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin.

Antioxidants are essential as you age to boost your body's natural defenses against oxidation. Researchers have found that a high level of dietary antioxidants can prevent many age-related diseases

The light green powder is potent and smells great
I really enjoyed the Green Tea Matcha Powder from Kiss Me Organics. It tasted great in everything I tried it is, while I didn't receive the recipe book that was supposed to come with it I did try it in my morning Vi-Shake(www.mylittlered1.myvi.net) and  LOVED IT!!! I keep finding more and more advantages to using Matcha in my everyday life and aside from all those the fact that it tastes great is enough to keep me coming back for more
