Pet Toys For Aggressive Chewers

Pet and Dog Toys for Aggressive chewers pet toys

How many of my readers have pets?  Show of hands... First of all, I don't know what I would do without my dogs.  Yes, they can do things to get on my ever lasting nerve and they may not be the most well behaved dogs, but I love them and they love me right matter what.

I love seeing my fur babies play around, having fun and enjoying a new toy that their mamma gave them.  They both recently received a new toy, which is meant for aggressive chewers (let me tell dogs are VERY aggressive with toys!)  These furry, soft and fun little critters are the Loobani Furry Animal Squeaky pet toys.  They each have a squeaker near the end of the toy, which instantly catches my dogs attention.

These Loobani Furry Animal Plush Pet Toys are machine washable (thank God!) and will entertain your pets for hours.  They seem very well made and very durable, and so far...they have seemed to held up pretty well.  The package I received had a squirrel and something that looked like a goat?  Either way, after playing with these toys for awhile, they both seemed partial to the gray and white goat looking toy.  Maybe it was because it had a chew rope down the back or just a little more bulkier, but they both wanted this particular furry critter!

You can check out these furry animal plush toys for aggressive chewing dogs at:  In the package, you will receive a squirrel and a raccoon.  Neither one of these toys contain stuffing, just a furry plush animal toy that can be enjoyed by your dogs or cats.

How You Can Get Beautiful Skin With L'Bri Skincare Products

...#l'bri #skincare #beauty #beautyproducts #antiaging
What is your most concern, when it comes to skin care?  Is it reducing fine lines; reducing the puffy bags under your eyes, a product that is pure and natural or to have a skin care routine that not only does all of this, but also leaves your skin feeling it's best!

Although I have only been using L'Bri for about a week, I've had the awesome opportunity to try L'Bri for reviewing purposes.  First of all, let me start off by saying....all opinions expressed in this post are solely 100% my own and I will only promote and support a product that I believe in.

With that being said, I absolutely love this line of skin care products.  For one, the product is pure and natural and with my skin type, I had the option to choose the Gentle products for Dry to Normal skin.  Let me breakdown what each product, that I've tried, does:


#beautyproducts #beauty #skincare #l'bri

L'Bri Gentle Cleanser - This is a gentle cleanser that is the first step of my routine.  The cleanser is a soft light pink color cleanser that removes every trace of dirt and makeup from my face!  I love this cleanser as it does not take much of this cleanser to do its job.  My face looks and feels so clean, afterwards!

L'Bri Gentle Freshener - This is the second product I use, after cleansing my face.  It is an alcohol free freshener that protects your skin from bacteria by restoring its normal pH balance.  This is used twice, daily...after the Gentle Cleanser and after using a facial peel or mask.

L'Bri Gentle Moisture Lotion - This is the LAST step in my skin care routine.  This is used before I apply my makeup.  It is used after the Cleanser and Freshener, as well as all the eye and face treatment products.  It almost reminds me of baby lotion!  It's so silky soft and a little bit goes a LONG way!  

#l'bri #skincare #antiaging #beautyproducts


L'Bri Dermaplex A - The Dermaplex A is used after the Gentle Cleanser, Gentle Freshener and before the Gentle Moisture lotion.  This Dermaplex A is supposed to be the bomb!  It is a Line Reversal Peptide Serum that is used for fine lines, crows feet and wrinkles.  Just a small dab of this serum around the eye area ( I also dab a bit between my eyes, right above my know what I'm talking about!)  Like I've said, I've only used these products for about a week, but I can't wait to see the results of this Dermaplex A after 30 days. (30 days is the average before seeing results.)  This is used twice a day, for the first 30 days.  It effectively reduces the depth of already formed facial wrinkles and works against the development of additional lines and wrinkles.

L'Bri Intense Eye Repair Cream - If I've mentioned it once, I'll mention it does not take very much of each one of these products.  Same goes here.  This cream is used after I apply my L' Bri Dermaplex A.  This powerful blend of ingredients, found in this eye cream, boosts skin's hydration while visibly reducing hyperpigmentation, crepiness, puffiness, lines and wrinkles.  It also reduces bags, lifts and lightens skin.  This is one of my MUST HAVES!  This is used for under and around the eye area as well as above the brow bone.  Even after a few hours, my eye area still feels smooth after this product.

L' Bri High Antioxidant Night Repair Treatment - This is the last thing I use, before retiring to bed.  I love how this makes my skin feel and it almost seems like it gives my skin a healthy glow!  My skin feels so super soft and when I first used this, I was in love!  The powerful antioxidants works to repair and protect skin cells from daily free radical damage. Wake up to a more youthful and refreshed complexion!

L' Bri Neck Firming Cream - It's never too late to start paying attention to your neck area!  This Neck Firming Cream is designed for the fragile neck and chest area and works to firm sagging neck skin, restoring youthful tone and definition.  Creped skin on the neck and chest is smoothed from the inside out, plumping and lifting slacked, lined skin.  This is used after the Gentle Cleanser, Freshener and any face treatments. 

L' Bri Rejuvenating Facial Peel - Okay...if you've never used a facial peel (I haven't either, until now) You MUST try this facial peel by L' Bri!  It will leave your skin feeling so freaking soft and not only that, it is formulated to remove the dead skin cells, revealing a more healthy and glowing skin.  Leaves skin feeling smooth and baby soft!

L 'Bri Facial Masque - Last, but certainly not least, the L' Bri Facial Masque is known as L' Bri's 'non-surgical face lift'.  This Masque firms and clears away dead skin cells, allowing your skin's natural smoothness to return. Crepiness and large pores are diminished, Simultaneously reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

I love how L' Bri's Pure n' Natural products are packaged (I'm a sucker for glass jar products!)  They have a very professional look to their packaging and many great reviews, from customers, on their products.

L' Bri Pure n' Natural products offer natural, safe and affordable skin care products. Aloe is the first ingredient in every L' Bri's products and the name, L'Bri, is derived from a husband and wife, who started this business...Linda and Brian Kaminski.  

If you want to try one, or several of these products, you can check out the products by visiting a L'Bri Pure n Natural Independent Consultant.  I've listed mine, below!

Healthy Eating: A Quick Snack That Is Grain Free

grain free granola cereal toppings

When 2018 started, I vowed that I would begin a healthy lifestyle: eating healthy, exercising, etc.  Well...some of that has happened (I just can't make myself workout more than 15 min!)  When it came to eating healthy, I think I do about 80% of that.

After joining a program that gave me personalized meal plans and recipes (This has made my life so much easier) I began losing weight - slowly - but at least I've lost and not gained.  My downfall is salty foods and snacks, with crunch. I crave the salty goodness of crackers, grains and more, knowing that this is not healthy.

grain free granola snack salad toppings

What is healthy, is this awesome snack that KitchFix has.  It has a bit of sweetness, mixed with nutty goodness of almonds, cashews, walnuts, coconut chips, raisins and the list goes on.  Not only does it satisfy my craving for something sweet and crunchy, it satisfies my salty cravings (this, by no means, is salty.)  This snack, by KitchFix, is the Grain Free Paleo Granola.

KitchFix was awesome enough to send me two of their granola packs - Grain Free Paleo Granola in Honey Pecan and Grain Free Paleo Granola Original Mix.  OMGoodness!  This is the ultimate snack (or topping) for my breakfast or lunch meals!  At first, I thought the Original Mix would be my favorite, only because it has the coconut chips and raisins....but then I tried the Honey Pecan.  The Honey Pecan has these clusters of almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds and more, with a hint of honey flavor.  

grain free granola salad topping

I'm still debating which is my favorite, but I can tell you this...I have used the Original Mix (coconut chips, raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds) as a topping for my chicken salad and it was amazing!  That little bit of extra crunch makes it all better!

Here is a little more info about the two.

ORIGINAL MIX - (Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Walnuts, Cashews,
                                                               Flax Seed, Unsweetened Coconut Chips, Maple Syrup, Coconut
                                                               Oil, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon and Sea Salt)

  • Crunchy, Nut-filled Grain-free granola with Coconut chips and Raisins
  • Full of flavor, not fillers like oats and sugar
  • Great for breakfast, as a topping on your smoothie bowl, or sprinkled on a salad
  • Take it on the go as a satisfying snack!

HONEY PECAN - (Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Pecans, Cashews, Honey, Maple Syrup
                                                              Coconut Oil, Flax Seed, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon and Sea Salt)

Grain Free Paleo Granola - Honey Pecan - Cereal Gluten Free NON GMO - Healthy & Crunchy Low Carb Protein Granola Cereals Flakes - Gourmet Granola Breakfast Snack By Kitchfix (10oz)

My Top 5 Fashion Must Haves for 2018

My Top 5 Fashion Must Haves #fringeshirt #summertop #womensfashion

2018 is already here and with the new year, comes a few changes, as well as some must haves that I want in my closet, this year.  Of course, I have no plans of ridding of my legging/jeggings (I mean...these are so comfy!) but a few things I have been seeing around, I must have!

Right now, I am in the process of losing some lbs, that I've gained over the past year (sigh...), and although I know it will take a lot of work and determination, I will get there.  With that being said, Spring 2018 clothing is bringing some pretty nice things that I must have, this year.  Let's take a look.

I started seeing a lot of these open shoulder, cold shoulder - hollow out shirts last year and this plans is to have at least one of these for spring. Not only does this shirt have long sleeves (Spring morning can still be a little chilly), but it has the open shoulder, cutouts in the chest area and has a neckline that I love!  The best part....this shirt is only $11.96 at FashionMia and comes in three different colors!

Open Shoulder Hollow Out Long Sleeve Shirt fashion

I don't know if jumpsuits are in your fashion must-haves, but they sure are in mine!  I have always loved the look of jumpsuits, but never took that leap into investing in one...mainly, because I have always been so self conscious of how they would look on me, with me gaining weight and on the hippy side.  My goal is to throw all that out the window and wear what I want to wear - finding the perfect jumpsuit for my body.  I believe I have found one...(or two!)
Pair these two with this necklace!

Wide Leg Jumpsuit, red jumpsuit, women's jumpsuit, fashion                        Solid Zips V-Neck Elastic Waist Pocket Romper

Forget about the slouchy shirts and the slip dress, the ruffle wrap dress is going to be on the list for 2018 must-haves.  This Ruffle Wrap Dress is perfect for almost every body type and will take the place of those long shirts, paired with jeans and leggings.

Deep V-Neck Flounce Ruffled Hem Plain Velvet Skater Dress

2018 will be the year when you will see more fringe.  If you haven't been into fringe, much, this year will be your year!  Fringe and distressed clothing will be what you will see more.

Fringe Long Sleeve Pullover shirtV-Neck Fringe See-Through Crochet Printed Tunic

If you don't know by now...distressed clothing is all the rave!  From distresses sweaters, short to pants, it's now wonder this hot item will become more popular in 2018.  I am totally loving the distressed look.

Distressed Contrast-Patch V-Neck BlouseDistressed Denim Midi Skirt

Mens Distressed ShortsDistressed Mens T Shirt

So....with that being said, If I had to choose, my favorite would have to be the distressed look and the cold shoulder-hollowed out clothing.

What is your favorite Must-Haves for 2018?  Are you into the distressed look....or something I haven't mentioned here?

What will be your favorite colors for 2018?

My Goals For 2018 And How I Plan To Achieve Them #2018goals

Happy New Year everyone!  Well, 2017 has not been to bad for me - no major issues, that I can recall, but once again, I've been stumbling my way through many sites - researching- trying to figure how to make income from my blog.

Yes, I'm still blogging and love it, but one of my goals is to eventually, one day, to work from home...blogging.  I've read so many successful stories and every story I read, it just gives me more hope.  To those of you who follow me on a regular basis...THANK YOU!  From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate each and every one of you.

Now is the time.  I want to hear what you guys are looking for...what you want to read or enjoy reading.  What kind of posts are you constantly searching for?  This year, one of my goals is to get to know my audience.  I want to create content that, not only you want to read, but keeps you coming back.  So...let's see what my 2018 goals are.


Affiliate marketing may be one of the most important and widely used sources among bloggers.  Yes, I am using affiliate marketing, but sales.  I plan on creating content around those affiliates and promoting more.  The affiliate program that I am using now is ShareASale.


There for a while, I was blogging almost every day, then recently, it kind of slowed down.  I've come to realize, that blogging consistently, keeps my readers up to date and may prevent them from going, elsewhere.  I DON'T WANT THAT! It also helps with monthly views and when blogging about content that is geared towards my audience, will hopefully gain more readers.


Blogger Schedule Calendar
This is a BIG priority of mine!  Some of you, especially bloggers, may know that when you can't blog every day, it's good to have a scheduling system in place.  Many bloggers use a scheduling program, such as Tailwind and Hoote Suite.  Right now, my scheduling is done by pen and paper - NOT A PRODUCTIVE SYSTEM!  I plan on writing as much as I can and then using a scheduling program to post my blog posts throughout the week...even weeks in advance. Having a set system written down on what I'm going to write, the day that is appropriate to post that posts, etc will help me to be consistent.


This one seems a little bit harder for me.  I've worked with some awesome brands in the past...loved them...but it was always a one time deal.  I want a continuing brand that I can work with - one that I would be proud to promote every single day!  Working harder on my social media engagement, posting more, sharing, etc are all main keys in achieving this.  I would love to work more with Beauty and Fashion if you're out there...HIT ME UP!


Ok, have you noticed how all of my goals are blog related?
Well...This may not seem to be blogging related...BUT IT IS!  The more I can travel, the more I can let you guys in on the places I've been, their culture, the food and more!  What fun topic to write about then places that I've visited with amazing pictures!  I love reading and looking at all the travel blogs and always wished I could be one of them...Well, dog gone it....I'm going to strive for that!

These are only just a few of my goals.  If I listed them would be here for days!  I am going to start off small and work my way up.  I plan on achieving more and more, as I grow in this blogging community and keeping my dreams and expectations set high.   

I hope 2018 is a wonderful year for all of you and I hope you achieve more of your dreams this year, than last year.

What are your goals for this year?
What do you want to see more from my posts?
Are you a blogger, reaching for a dream?

I would love to hear what your goals and dreams are!
