Mega Mesh Premium Magnetic Screen Door Review

About a year ago, my husband and I brought home a dog who turned out to be incredibly destructive. He was so destructive, in fact, that we had to get rid of him after he tore every screen off of our windows and our sliding door in the back yard, chewed up our couch (yes, our couch) and even a door.


Above, you can see the damage on our sliding back door. Literally half the screen was gone. We never got around to fixing it, but recently, I was able to try the Mega Mesh Premium Magnetic Screen Door. I hoped that it could replace the screen that was torn on our sliding back door.

Old Wives Tail Organic Hair Oil Treatment Review

Since I was 12, I've worn my hair quite long--well past my waist. The thought of cutting it terrifies me, and with that said, I literally trust no one with my hair. When it comes to trimming it up, coloring it, etc., I am the one in charge. With that said, I've recently been slacking when it comes to keeping my hair in its best shape, which has led to dry hair and split ends.

Luckily for me, I came across a product that I hoped would help repair my tresses to their former glory.


Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur Concealer Review

Concealer, for me, is a must-have beauty product. Because I'm a mother, it's not uncommon to see me with dark under-eye circles or puffiness. Not only do these skin issues cause me to look older than I truly am, but it also puts a damper on my confidence.


Recently, I was able to try Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur Concealer, a natural, pure mineral makeup.

Weigh-In Wednesday: 10.2 Lbs Down!

If you've been following my weight loss journey, you know that it all started exactly two weeks ago. Today for Weigh-In Wednesday, I'm excited to announce that so far, I've lost a grand total of...

10.2 Pounds

The first week, I dropped 9 pounds, so this week, I only shed 1.2 pounds. As mentioned previously, my goal on Spark People is to lose 2 pounds per week. Despite that, progress is progress and as long as I'm not gaining, I am perfectly fine with the results.

Bella & Bear Eyelash Curler Review

My children were blessed with beautiful, long, thick eyelashes--and unfortunately, those genes didn't come from me. My husband was the one who passed on the lovely lashes to our children. Mine, on the other hand, are short, sparse, and "barely there." It literally takes me about 15 minutes to get my eyelashes looking the way that I want them to. Yes, I spend 15 minutes on my eyelashes alone.


As you can see...er...well, I guess you really can't see my lashes. Fortunately for me, I was able to try the Bella and Bear "Eye & Mighty" Eyelash Curler to see if it really is "the best" eyelash curler, as stated on their Amazon page.

Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bath Scale Review

As many of you already know, a week ago I started my weight loss journey. I've been using an old-fashioned dial scale to track my weight and unfortunately, those things are notorious for being inaccurate. We all know that if that little dial isn't perfectly on the zero when you step on, your weight could be off by up to four pounds. Since I'm pretty picky about my numbers when it comes to weight loss, I didn't like that at all.

Fortunately, my problem was solved as I recently had the chance to try the Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bath Scale.

Weight Loss Journey: Weigh-In Wednesday

Welcome to Week Two of my weight loss journey.

I am incredibly excited to report that everything has gone as planned. I've stuck to my diet and fitness plan religiously and it's starting to show.

I've lost a total of 9 pounds.

I've also lost 2.5 inches overall on my bust, waist, and hips.


I know that these before and after photographs do not show a huge difference, but I'll still be sharing them week by week, so that once it does start to show, I'll have images to look back on how far I've come.
