Spray away bad breath with #OraMD Breath!

Friday, December 19, 2014
I was NOT compensated for this review. I received a FREE bottle of OraMD Breath to facilitate this review. All thoughts/opinions are my own. Your experience may differ.
Bad breath is not only a conversation killer, it can also ruin your day! You could brush your teeth and use mouthwash, but it isn't very convenient if you're in a meeting or at a party.

OraMD Breath is a 100% Pure Breath Spray that completely eliminated embarrassing bad breath and kills the cause of bad breath in one spray. OraMD Breath is made of 100% pure botanical oils of almond, spearmint, and peppermint. These ingredients have been clinically proven to kill peridontal bacterial, which is known to cause bad breath. There are no bacteria-causing sugars or chemicals, so you don't have to worry!

Quick note: Each 0.17oz bottle should give you at least a whopping 60 sprays! OraMD is for people ages 13 and older who are not pregnant or breastfeed.

To relieve your bad breath, just give your a mouth a spray of OraMD Breath!

You can follow OraMD on Facebook.

BUY
You can purchase OraMD Breath on their website for $8.95 for a single bottle.

WHAT I THOUGHT
I sometimes suffer from bad breath, especially when I am having an acid reflux episode (which is common for those with GERD). Since AR can cause bacteria to enter the mouth (Gross, I know. Sorry!), I can't always brush my teeth when I have acid reflux, especially if I am away from home. So luckily, I was able to give OraMD Breath a chance.

First off, it is small enough to fit into a pocket or handbag, which makes it easy for spraying on the go. The next thing that really stood out was the taste. If you're expecting the taste of be like mouthwash, think again! The taste is very strong and kind of bitter. Okay- really bitter. It is kind of like a shock to the system the first time you use it. You might want to brace yourself.

Fortunately, the bitterness went away the more I used it. Even the strong taste went away after a few uses. Once I got past the taste, I noticed that my breath didn't smell as bad! Seriously! If I was worried about my breath just before speaking to someone, I would give it a quick spray, and I could tell that my breath was minty. Score!

Yep, it did the job and now I carry it with me everywhere I go.

A Curvy Girl's Holiday Outfit

Thursday, December 18, 2014
It's the holidays (Yay!) and that means get-togethers, parties, and fun! When it comes to parties, I always try to look my best. I don't have my personal style yet, but the holidays are the perfect time to try things out!

I also try to find items I already have or that are super affordable. Think I can create an outfit for $250 or less?

Can you tell me which set is more expensive?

SET A






SET B


If you guessed Set B, you would be correct! All together, Set B would cost a whopping $4,892! Of course, the most expensive pieces are the jewelry and shoes. Set A would only set you back $230!

LEAST EXPENSIVE PIECES
Set A - Black jacket ($33 at Target); Heart necklace ($16 at 1928.com); Bracelet ($3.90 at Forever21)
Set B - Gray shirt ($29 at Maurices); Black jacket ($26 at BooHoo.com)

Swapping pieces from these sets (minus the $1500 shoes) may create a look any curvy girl will love!

Which one do you like best?

I like Set B with the jewelry from Set A!



Holiday Nail Fun!

Wednesday, December 17, 2014
(Ignore the black smudge on my middle finger. There is something wrong with the camera lens.)

I love painting my nails for the holidays, but this year, I wanted something a little more subtle. So I decided to put my 2 new nail polishes to work! To get this look, you will need:

Your standard base & top coat
Milani Tricky Treat (or something similar, since it is hard to find)
Sinful Colors Frenzy
Sinful Colors All About You (Currently out of stock at Walmart but you might be able to find it elsewhere)
Tape

* <-- If you see this, it means that this step only applies to the ring fingers.

How-To

  1. Apply your base coat and let it dry completely.
  2. Apply 2 coats of Milani Tricky Treat (or your similar color), letting it dry between coats.
  3. Since Sinful Colors' All About You (the gold glitter) is sheer and not very impressive on its own, put at least 2-3 coats on top of the Tricky Treat. You don't have to let it dry between coats. That's up to you. But do let the last coat dry completely. I waited at least 24 hours.
  4. *Using tape (I used medical tape, since it was all I could find and it worked fabulously), go from the top corner (near your cuticles) to the middle of the edge of the nail. 
  5. *Use several passes of Sinful Colors' Frenzy (which is sheer and glittery) to get the hue you want. You do not have to let it dry between coats. 
  6. Once everything is dry, put on your top coat.
It's not very showy, but the gold goes perfect with the holidays and the glittery sparkles of Frenzy is perfect for those who want a little pop of color without being too bold.

Hope y'all like it and happy holidays!

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers (Mega List)!

Monday, December 15, 2014

Believe it or not, there are only 9 days left until Christmas! Let the panic set in!

Everyone has mostly bought all of their major gifts, but one thing that tends to be finally remembered on Christmas Eve is the stocking. I have known some people who have just filled with candy and fruit and called it a day. Not exactly the stocking stuffer the recipient was hoping for. So in case you have forgotten a couple of stocking stuffers (or even last minute White Elephant gifts), I have created a mega list for you!

Ready?


  • Gift cards
  • Toothbrushes
  • Tools (Like screwdrivers or measuring tape.)
  • Fishing stuff (Like hooks or lures.)
  • Poster (It'll stick out of the stocking but it fits! Trust me.)
  • DVDs
  • T-shirts (Roll them up!)
  • Beauty (Like makeup, nail polish, hair accessories, lotion, etc.)
  • Socks
  • Handheld electronic games
  • Small toys (Single dolls and Barbies as well.)
  • Bottle opener
  • Novelty band aids
  • Pen/pencil sets
  • Phone/tablet cases
  • Wallets
  • Money
  • Candy
  • Small puzzle book (Like the kind you would find at Dollar General by the cashier.)
  • Playing cards (Bicycle has come out with some great designs!)
  • Jewelry
  • Small photo frames
  • Pocket calendars
  • Earbuds (Or headphones, if they will fit.)
  • Flashlights
  • Fun keychains
  • Small books
  • Magnetic travel game
  • USB flash drive
  • Memory cards
  • Specialty tea/coffee
  • Wall stickers/decals
  • Pet toys & treats
  • As Seen On TV products
  • Small candles 
  • Craft supplies
  • Religious items
  • Crayons
  • Small coloring books
  • Lottery scratch-offs (Remember- only adults 18+ can redeem them!)
  • Small gag gifts (Make sure they are age appropriate.)
  • Small puzzle (They can be found at Dollar Tree.)
  • Tablet/mobile phone accessories
  • Small photo albums
  • Personalized/handmade Christmas ornaments
  • Hats/scarves/gloves
  • Underwear (I know plenty of people who still do that!)
Here are a few tips:

Make sure that it will fit in the stocking. This year, I made the mistake of getting Mom a stocking stuffer that would only fit those gigantic 5 foot stockings. I read the description wrong, and it ended up being 6" bigger than what I thought. Oops!

If you are getting a heavy stocking stuffer, make sure that the stocking will hold it. You don't want the stocking to come crashing down before Christmas morning.

Also, make sure that everyone has the same amount of stocking stuffers or that the gifts equal the same amount everyone else has. So if someone gets a pretty big stocking stuffer, make sure others have more smaller stocking stuffers so no one feels slighted. 


#PortableNorthPole- Get a personalized video from Santa!

Saturday, December 13, 2014

It's that time of the year again to get the children excited for Santa! Portable North Pole allows your child/ren or even adult friend to receive totally personalized and customizable videos from Santa!
Portable North Pole (or PNP, as it's sometimes called) is a great way for children and adults alike to get into the holiday spirit and continue believing in Santa. PNP offers free videos and premium videos, including a Unlimited Holiday Pass. With the Unlimited Holiday Pass, you can also have Santa call the person of your choice with up to 3 different storylines ($5.99 for 3 different storylines and 3 calls from Santa.

This year, you can even make a video for an adult friend (as well as a child). There are also different bundles available, including the Jingle Bell Bundle, and even a special Christmas Eve video (only with the Unlimited Holiday Pass).

So how you do get your FREE personalized and customized video from Santa? Well, decide whether the video is for a grown up or child. Then you just follow the prompts that allow you to personalize it to the person. You can upload photos of the person and the gift they want or just choose what they have in the pull-down menu. Once you confirm that all the information is correct, you can either watch the video or share it via social media or e-mail.

I love sending PNP videos to my loved one and friends! However, the video might be a little pixelated unless you purchase the Save All Videos package, where you can watch the video in HD.

Don't forget that you can also use the PNP console on their apps that are available on iTunes and Google Play!

You're never too old to believe in Santa!
