Stay Weird and Shine On - Funky, Fun and Outrageous Christmas Wear by Shinesty

Weird, funny and outrageous; this is exactly how you would describe Shinesty's Christmas wear for the season!  Shinesty.com is know for their outrageous and fun themed clothes that range from children pj's and suits to women's dresses and underwear.  Oh, and let's not forget you guys!  Shinesty.com has weird suits and boxer briefs...also known as ball hammocks!  

I had the chance to try out Shinesty's Christmas wear, but went a little more modest with their Snowflake turtleneck and a matching Snowflake Christmas suit for my 2 year old grandson.  I don't know if you guys are familiar with Snapchat, but when I first Snapchatted my grandson in his snowflake suit, I got mixed reactions; such as his mommy replying back..."What in the world!" to one of my co-workers saying how cute that Christmas suit was.

I thought he look rather handsome (but I did chuckle when I put the outfit on him.)  The toddler suit was very well made, sturdy and looked just like a real suit, with buttons down the sleeve to the matching pants.  The turtle neck I received was so soft and matched my 2 year old grandson's suit perfectly.  I thought these matching outfits would be FUN for Christmas pictures, that would also make for fun Christmas cards!

BUT....Shinesty is not only geared towards Christmas.  They also have crazy outfits for Thanksgiving, St. Paddy's Day and more.  Just imagine being the life of the party when you show up in one of Shinesty's outfits!  You may be the talk of the party, but just think how much fun your party will be!

Below are some of the fun, geeky and outrageous Christmas winter wear you can expect to find at Shinesty.com.

Now, mind you, these are just a sample of what Shinesty.com has to offer.  Remember...they have outlandish outfits for many occasions, so go check them out!  I noticed that some of my favorites are sold out, but can't wait to see what they come up with next!

Alder New York - The Go-To Holistic Personal Skin Care Brand

Hello my fellow guys and gals!  Today, I want to talk to you about a skin care brand that I've recently tried.  It is Alder New York and they have a few products that I've tried and have become to trust.  Now, with any skin care product, it does take a while to see a difference, but today, I'm letting you in on why I love this brand.

First, Alder New York's products are clean, vegan and genderless.  They don't use any harmful chemicals in their products and the cleaner (but effective) the product is, the better it is for your skin.  I have slowly started using more clean products, products that are more organic and good for your skin.

Alder New York first launched in 2016 and has become to go-to holistic personal care brand for uncomplicated, high performing skin care and hair care essentials.  They do not test on animals and refuse to sell their products to countries that require it.

So, with all that being said, let's jump right into the products that I've tried.


This cleanser feels really nice going onto my face.  It has very little, if any, foam and has more of a gel like serum texture.  It contains a low dose of glycolic acid, which is used to gently exfoliate dead skin and dirt.  It also contains Alder New York's sea botanical extract blend, which encourages collagen production and cell turnover.  This cleanser is said to brighten (which it does) and tighten.  Who doesn't want a cleanser that brighten and tighten!  

The cleanser never made my face feel dry, which is a plus and I loved how clean my face looked and felt, afterwards.  Although this is a cleanser, I also felt like it moisturized my face, as well, because my face felt so clean and soft after each use.


I love serums.  I'm a sucker for serums and Alder New York's serum was a big hit in my books.  It immediately absorbed into my skin, leaving this soft subtle glow.  It is somewhat a thin serum, but very effective.  Alder New York uses 
hyaluronic acid, Vitamin B3, willow bark and rosemary extract in this serum.

The hyaluronic acid is to help plump and hydrate your skin, Vitamin B3 to even skin tone, willow bark and rosemary extract to help balance oils and skin texture.  They hyaluronic acid plumps and fills lines and wrinkles by providing moisture to your skin.  Vitamin B3 is used to reduce inflammation and control redness and evening out the skin tone.


Awwww...moisturizer!  A skin's best friend!  Again, I'm a sucker for a good moisturizer and I never miss a day without it.  I use it morning and night.  Alder New York's moisturizer went on very smoothly, absorbed pretty fast into my skin (is is because my face is dehydrated or dry?) and left this nice glow to my skin, afterwards.  It did not feel sticky, tacky or oily and love that it instantly absorbed into my skin.

Alder New York's Everyday Face Moisturizer hydrates and protects your skin from daily pollutants.  It's packed with Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, sunflower oil and oatmeal and aloe vera extract.  Whew...that's a lot of goodness in one moisturizer!  It doesn't take much of this moisturizer, just 2-3 pumps and you're good to go.

You can check out each of these Alder New York's products at: https://aldernewyork.com. They also have these three products in travel size, perfect for tossing into your purse or suitcase, while on the go, traveling or vacationing.

Have you tried Alder New York? If so, what are your thoughts and your favorite products?

The Softest, Plushest Down Feather Mattress Topper I've Tried

I have always loved a semi firm to firm mattress.  I just feel like I need more support and easier way to roll out of bed in the morning and with a soft mattress, I just feel like I don't get that support and getting out of bed...the mattress was like a sagging surface, making it difficult.

I was bound and determined to have a firm mattress and I got it....but, as I got older, my body just didn't appreciate the firm mattress anymore.  What was funny, is that my husband had his side of the bed, softened by a foam padding and after he left for work in the mornings, I would roll over to his side (first hint I needed something softer.)

This mattress topper couldn't have come at a better time.  I will admit, I was skeptical of this mattress topper, after all, it was one huge, giant cushion!  After placing the mattress topper on my bed, it looked so pretty!  It has these quilted looking squares and the longer I allowed it to lay on my bed, the more plush it seemed to look.

I immediately placed my mattress protector over it, along with the sheets.  I crawled into bed and OMG, I felt like I was in heaven!  Seriously folks, I'm not one to brag or go all out on a product like this, unless it's really an amazing product I love and let me tell you...I felt like I was literally laying on inches of feathery soft layers of cushion ever!

I slept so good last night on this mattress topper.  This mattress topper can be placed on your current mattress or on top of your memory foam bedding cushion.  It has double straps on all four corners to allow you to anchor to your mattress.  The mattress topper is 3 inches in thickness and is filled with feather down material...not poor fiber fillings.

The mattress has air flow and is 100% breathable and allows for that good night sleep.  The mattress measures 60" x 80" and is available in Queen and King size beds. You can experience this ultra softness yourself, by visiting http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FXT9V56.  

For those used to sleeping on a firm mattress and find yourself wishing you had something a little bit more softer...this may be your answer!

It Really Works! Benedetta Skin Care's Best Deodorant - 100% Botanical - All Natural

You know, sometimes it can be hard to find just the right deodorant...a deodorant that not only works, but is organic, farm sourced and 100% natural.  I was actually surprised by how well this deodorant, by Benedetta Skin Care, worked!

The "Best" Deodorant is one of Benedetta's best selling product, as well it should be.  The deodorant is clean, 100% botanical and dries quickly.  While not an antiperspirant, it counteracts the bacteria that causes excessive sweating. This deodorant is primarily composed of a locally sourced organic and biodynamic blend of grape alcohol.

You will not find any water or fillers added in Benedetta's "Best" Deodorant.  I'm not sure what the scent is that is in this deodorant, but I love it!  It's different and it's not too overwhelming.  I was told that the scent that I love so much, was actually an ingredient in the deodorant that helps target odors as an active ingredient.

Benedetta's products never contain fillers, synthetic fragrances or color agents.  They have a Holistic view on their products.  Benedetta Skin Care takes into account how long a plant has been on the planet, where it grows, its botanical family, and its color and appearance before considering it for their products. Their formulation ethic is to foster a connection with botanicals like that of indigenous peoples' relationship to their rainforests - and believe all answers to a healthy and vibrant life can be found in our beautiful habitat.

I love that Benedetta has spent well over 30 years, perfecting their formulas to the histology and anatomy of the skin.  I also love that they use natural products, are farm sourced; acquiring from farms that they are close to and to whom they have a relationship with, not to mention, they create in small batches, to ensure the purist and top quality products available.  This says a lot about this company!

Benedetta takes pride in their products and it shows.  I am so excited to have tried Benedetta's "Best" deodorant, as it really does work!  I still can't get over the scent...it's my absolute favorite when it comes to deodorant!  You can experience this wonderful (tried and true) organic deodorant by visiting Benedetta's site: https://benedetta.com/products/the-best-deodorant-70

Free Reign Farm Soy Candles Contains No Toxins

Free Reign Farm Soy Candles contains no toxins!  That is what I love to hear on any product!  It gives me the satisfaction and comfort, knowing that when I burn a candle, I don't have to worry about anyone in my house, suffer from headaches when I burn a candle.

Now, my family is not affected by burning candles (not that I know of), but when I have guests come into my home, I always like to have a candle burning, just for that inviting welcome and, of course, to have a nice smelling house.  Some people are prone to headaches, asthma and other issues when it comes to burning candles and that can be due to the toxins that are in the fragrances, as well as the candle itself.

Free Reign Farm went the extra mile when they created their candles.  Did you know that chemicals in most fragrances can cause anything from headaches and even linked to some cancers?  That is why Free Reign Farm wanted the cleanest burning candle, without all those harmful toxins.  They want you to be able to enjoy their candles, without giving up the wonderful fragrances that come with them.

Free Reign Farm has had all their fragrances custom formulated.  They then upgraded their woodwick experience by custom manufacturing their own wicks.  We all love the crackle and flicker of wood wicks but they are a pain to light. Wood absorbs moisture making relighting a wood wick problematic, you end up wax pouring, wick trimming, and frustrated. Free Reign Farm fixed all that with their cotton and wood wick Everlight wicks. The combination is easy to light, burns all the way across-no tunneling- and burns all the way down.

With 23 different scents to choose from, I had a little trouble figuring out just what scent I wanted to try first.  I finally chose the Cherry Almond...And I'm so glad I did!  It smells heavenly and...gives that little touch of the holidays!  I am very happy with my Free Reign Farm candle.  It lit very easily, did not cause any headaches or sinus issues and my home smelled wonderful!

You can check out all 23 of Free Reign Farm's Candles, here: https://www.freereignfarm.com/product/amazing-natural-candles

Marbetia Women's Long Sleeve V Neck Plaid Tie Shirt

Hey guys...I'm back, with yet another great shirt by the brand, Marbetia.  This shirt is following in the same style and pattern as the previous shirt, plaid.  The shirt is a black and gray plaid that has a v-neck and buttons down, not to mention, a tie that can be tied, if you so desire.

I find that I can wear this shirt tied, or un-tied, but come on, this shirt is just so cute and stylish when it's tied and anytime I can take advantage of a shirt that can be tied in the front (considering it covers my pouchy stomach), I'm going to go for it.

The shirt, as like the other, can be worn with leggings, slacks, jeggings or shorts.  Of course, I like to pair it up with the same color that is in the shirt, so black leggings it is!  The v-neck neckline lies smoothly against my chest, without any bulk or wrinkles and I love how comfortable this shirt feels, while wearing it.

The shirt is available in blue, red and black and I find that I'm definitely going to have to check out that red plaid shirt pretty soon!  The shirt consist of 95% polyester and 5% spandex....yes! 5% spandex!  No wonder this shirt is so comfy!  How awesome would this shirt look, with jeans!  The shirt is a chiffon material, but no worries....it is NOT see through!  I love finding chiffon tops that you don't have to layer with camisoles!

You can check out this shirt, as well as other colors, at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JNQGN6V
