Beauty Lies Within and Utilize Your Talents

True beauty lies within us, I love this quote and every woman needs to feel good about herself.  Having good Self-Esteem is important in our life!

Photo: True! Be awesome

Being a woman we need to be encouraged and encourage each other.  Sometimes life and its challenges can really hit us and bring us down but we are not to allow circumstances to influence who we are as a person. 

I believe that we all have talents and need to use them.  Each one of us have talents within us and need to express and utilize them.  If we are unemployed then we have more time on our hands.  We need to find out what our niche is and exercise it.  The things sometimes that hold us back is ourself!  Fear of failure and uncertainty.  I know for myself that I used to battle with fear, the "what ifs"  We can be  our own worst enemy at times.
  I guess I have a talent I didn't know I had was baking breads.  My mother used to make banana bread, carrot cake, etc.  I decided to try and make banana bread and it turned out delicious!

 I took a loaf to my Pastor and he just loved it!  He loved it so much that he didn't want to share it, haha.  If I never tried making the bread I would have not known that I had a talent in this area.  Not only that but I got to share it with people which was awesome!
  In life I want to be a blessing to others. This is just an example of my life.  I am learning that sometimes it is the little things in life that can mean a lot.

A Talent is a natural endowment of a person. It is an ability or natural capacity that we have, which may range from our creativity to our athletic abilities. We all have them, but we are not always so good at identifying what they are. Sometimes they can be right in front of us, and we miss them.

What talents do you have?  Do you utilize them or are they sitting dormant? 
  Who knows, your talent could turn into a business which you can profit from and enjoy what you do for a business.
  These are just thoughts to ponder!

Don't waste your talents but use them.  Why not start today!

Review- Vichy Idealia Products

I had the opportunity through Chick- Advisor to test some Vichy Products
I am a big fan of Vichy and the creams are my go to products.
They are high end and quality, a little on the pricier side but are worth every cent!!
I am satisfied with the overall performance and how great your skin looks after using them. Each time I use them it is like getting a makeover in a jar, bottle or tube.

I just tried the Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep which I use every night after my make up is removed, and have been buying it since.
This product when applied feels wonderful, the texture is smooth and not greasy and soaks into your skin and your skin feels soft and moisturised. It feels like springs in the dessert when applied.  My skin looks better and is smoother, less lines and is highly moisturised and makes your skin look fresh and alive!
I just love it!!!!
If you haven't tried it and your skin is dull and slightly dry I would suggest giving it a try.
This gets 5 Stars from me

I totally love this product and it is a perfect shade for me. When applied to the face it is a moisturiser and a tinted colour all in one.  I find when I apply it my complexion looks smoother and covers any marks(blemishes and scars) on my skin.  Plus it has SPF 25 for protection against the harmful rays of the sun.  Excellent quality ad worth purchasing.
I give this a 5 Star as well
I have also tried the Vichy Life Serum
Vichy is a quality product and I love all Vichy products but I found it didn't settle on my skin but was peeling, It made my face red and I didn't really find any benefits with this one.
This one gets 2 Stars out of 5  The 2 stars is I love Vichy brand and the bottle was easy to use and apply it.

Review- Canada Dry Blackberry Gingerale

I had the opportunity to through Chick-Advisor to test and try the New Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale

I was excited to try the new flavour of Canada Dry as I am a big fan of their Ginger Ale!

I received my Chick-Advisor box and in it was four pop lids, four swirly straws and a coupon for a twelve pack of the pop.

I find Canada Dry is creative and innovative when it comes to creating new flavours.  at Christmas time I purchased a case of the Cranberry flavour which was pretty amazing and was a hit at my dinner.

So last night my room mate and I had sampled the Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale.  The flavour was good, I like that it made from real ginger and is naturally flavoured and of course it is my favourite brand.
The beverage had great flavour, was not highly carbonated so it wasn't gassy like some pops which I liked and the natural ingredients sold me on this one and it was a light bubbly drink. I found this beverage to be a light flavoured, tasty sparkly drink almost like a spritzer rather than a pop so it was very flavourful. The quality of the product was excellent and the price was affordable.

This drink would be something I buy on occasion rather than a go to drink. 

My rating for Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale would be

5 Stars

Thanks Canada Dry for your new creations and for the opportunity to test the new brand.

If you have not tried the new Canada Dry I would suggest buying a case.  If you do let me know what your thoughts are on the new flavour.

Special thanks to Chick-Advisor for the opportunity to taste sample Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale as well!!!

FREEBIES- Free Wildflower Seeds

Save the Bees and get Free pack of Wildflower seeds below

The Bee Cause calls for a ban on bee harmful pesticides and practices while proposing and delivering practical ways to help bees and wild pollinators.


Bees are critical to food security

Two-thirds of the food crops humans eat everyday require bees and other pollinators to successfully produce a crop. However- the health and productivity of honeybees, bumble bees, and other pollinators are in great peril, and populations are dwindling worldwide.
Although honey bee losses have been linked to multiple factors, a strong and growing body of scientific evidence has shown that the use of neonicotinoid pesticides are a major contributing factor to bee die-offs.

What are Neonicotinoids?

  • Neonicotinoids (neonics) are systemic pesticides that are absorbed into plant tissues. Once applied, they spread through the entire plant, including the stems, flowers, pollen and nectar.
  • Neonicotinoids can poison bees directly, and even low-level exposure can lead to sub-lethal effects such as altered learning, impaired foraging and immune suppression.
  • Neonicotinoids are used on virtually 100% of corn seed, and on a large percentage of soy, wheat, and canola seed.
  • Neonicotinoids are applied to crops using seed coatings, sprays, soil drenches and granules.
  • Hard to believe, but new neonicotinoid pesticides have been approved since PMRA announced neonicotinoids were under review.

Help To Make The Single Most Effective Change For Bees

Unless Canada changes how new pesticides are approved we will constantly be fighting to have one pesticide or another taken off the market. Our system is broken. It is too close to the pesticide manufacturers and too far from up-to-date scientific methods.
It is hard to believe, but a number of new neonicotinoid pesticides have been approved since Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) announced neonicotinoids were under review.  And it did so in the face of mounting scientific evidence and growing public concern.
The scientific approach must be updated by replacing “Risk Assessment” with “Systematic Review” and ending the practice of issuing conditional registrations. The first neonicotinoid pesticides were allowed on the market even though the PMRA recognized the threat to honey bees. They issued registrations on the condition that more studies would be done to understand the impact on bees. For over ten years PMRA ignored its own conditions while millions of bees died agonizing deaths. Unless we change the system, pesticide manufacturers will continue to sell neonics and the next generation of systemic pesticides.  Here’s what we need to do.
We need a transparent and participatory process of systematic reviews. Under the present rules, PMRA only tells the public it is about to register a new pesticide after it has made the decision. You and I are welcome to submit comments, but we can see the scientific information only by traveling to Ottawa and reading it in the library.  These decisions release poisons across Canada without any public environmental assessment.
Friends of the Earth will be asking everyone to agree to write one letter or email in 2016 to support our campaign to change how pesticides are regulated. Sign up for Friends of the Earth e-newsletterso you will know when to send your letter or email. 

Gardeners Beware

Neonicotinoids aren’t just used in agriculture- many plants sold at home garden centres have also been pre-treated with these bee-killing pesticides.
Unfortunately, many gardeners have no idea that they may actually be poisoning pollinators through their efforts to plant bee-friendly gardens.
GB2014 imageThe 2014 Gardener’s Beware report, released by Friends of the Earth Canada, Friends of the Earth U.S., and the Pesticide Research Institute, found that 51% of plant samples collected big box stores in 18 cities across Canada and the U.S. contained bee-killing neonicotinoids.



What You Can Do:

Thanks to our partner, Veseys Seeds, we are able to plant wildflowers and make Canada a bee-friendlier place.

Loreal Root Cover Up Red, WOWZERS!!!!!!

Here is the package I received in the mail below.

I recently had the opportunity to receive and do an honest review on the new Loreal Root Cover Up Spray in red through Influenster.
I used this on my boyfriends Mother Shirley as she has red hair and grey roots.  I was a bit sceptical of this product but when I started applying it I was very impressed!  

Before the application of the product

When applying it and after I was finished

She needs a haircut but you get the idea and can see the results!  

It not only covered the root but as you can see by the picture it blended well with the red she had in her hair already.  This stayed in and didn't bleed out when she sweat.  It had a good consistency and went on even. 
 The can is small and a bit pricey but if your hair is short it can be used for a couple times. 
Loreal made a great innovative product for the woman on the go.  If you have roots and company is going to surprise you and drop in unannounced you want to look your best so this is a great product to have on hand for the occasion.

This product gets a 5 Star Rating!

Thanks Loreal for the new innovative products that make our life better.

Tell me below your thoughts on this product.

Disclaimer:  The opinions expressed are those of my own and not necessarily those of the companies.  I received this product through Influenster free of charge for testing purposes.
