The History of Me in Music

Music has been a big part of my life from the time I was a baby. When I was little I would watch my mom getting ready to go out and dancing in the house to music.

FYSIKO Eyelash Growth Serum

The instructions say you won't see results until at least 4- 6 weeks. But I am so excited that at 3 weeks I had to SCREAM that it is WORKING already.

Kenya Moore Booty Bootcamp Review

If you know me you know I love The Real Housewives Series and one of my favorites is Atlanta. I think Kenya Moore former Ms. USA is a great addition this season. That being said when I was asked by the wonderful @bookieboo from Mamavation if I wanted to review her DVD Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp , I was like "YEAH" I want a stallion booty.

#Mamavation & #BobHarperLive 2 Week Challenge

BIG THANKS to @MrBookieboo for giving me the chance to participate in this 2 week challenge with others through  mamavation.com  .  Everyday for 2 weeks I logged on to  BobHarper.com  and did the workout picked for me that day. The website also has great recipes ( which I LOVED ) , a community for motivation & fitness tips. After doing it everyday for the last 14 days I have lost a total of 5 lbs, I also lost some inches in my hips/thighs 1 inch & waist 1 1/2 inches . This challenge made me WAKE UP to the fact that I CAN DO IT . I tend to get MOMMY guilt but guess what the house didn't burn down, the kids didn't starve and I felt better doing it.  This is only the beginning I look forward to finding the "ME" time to take better care of myself.

4 Years Ago

I took my kids to a Rally for President Obama over 4 years ago when he came to Miami. We were there over 6 hours and the kids did not complain once they were more excited then me. I thought it was important for them to see history in the making. Mrs. Obama and about 20 other people spoke. We had a great time.

Don't Forget to Change Your Clocks & Batteries


Fall_Back_Check_Your_Alarm_Batteries

When it’s time to "fall back" and change the clocks on Sunday, Nov. 4, make sure to check the batteries in all of your smoke alarms-- it could save your life.
Did you know that having a working smoke alarm reduces a person's chance of dying in a fire by half? For the best protection, install smoke alarms on every level of your home, outside every sleeping area and in every bedroom. Smoke alarms should be mounted high on walls or ceilings and tested monthly.
It's important to replace smoke alarm batteries at least once a year, unless they're 10-year lithium batteries. Even if your smoke alarms are hardwired, replace the batteries in case of a power outage.
If an alarm “chirps,” warning that the battery is low, replace the battery right away. Replace all smoke alarms, including alarms that use 10-year batteries and hardwired alarms, when they are 10 years old or sooner if they do not respond properly when tested.

#Mamavation and #BobHarperLive





A couple weeks ago I saw a tweet from @MrBookieboo and @bookieboo on twitter about joining a special Mamavation  2 week challenge with Bob Harper. Yes, that Bob Harper ( Biggest Loser trainer & my husband in my head) how could I refuse. The first 100 people who signed up got 2 weeks free access to bobharper.com which has everything you need on it. It has workouts, recipe guides, a community of people who have answers to everything and a fitness journal . The challenge started on Monday October 29th,  so far so good. Everyday I log on and do a workout that was specially picked for me.I have even made a few of the recipes on the site like smoothies,oatmeal & pancakes for breakfast , I can't wait to make more .The workouts are very easy to follow they have demos to watch to make sure you are doing it right. My favorite workout so far has been the 5 minute workout (Not Really) after that one I felt the BURN but it was a good burn... I am very excited to see what happens once the 2 weeks are up. 3 winners will randomly be selected to win some very cool prizes but as far as I am concerned everyone who is participating in this challenge are WINNERS. Hopefully next week I will have some great results to post.

The Holiday Season is Here #GivingTuesday

Most of the time the first thing that comes to mind is what  to buy family & friends and what do we want. I try and involve my kids in some type of volunteer work or activity so they see more than just that. It is so important that we teach our kids that it is so much more than just that . You may be asking what can little ole me do, we all know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday well what about  http://givingtuesday.org/ on the website they have tools to help you find a charity on your area or a place that you can volunteer at.




On Tuesday November 27, 2012, charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
It’s a simple idea. Find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.
And together we’ll create ways to give more, give better and give smarter.
