I discovered this great lady via twitter thanks to another online friend. It took me a while to discover what she was all about and what her goal was on twitter and facebook. After a few days of checking her out and twittering with her I am so glad I followed her and have been interacting with her. 
I have followed many people on twitter and facebook and not one of those people has touched me like Emi. Her goal is to spread love and compassion throughout the world. You can win prizes from her and the only thing she wants is for you to share with everyone. 
There aren't many on this earth these days that show even a tidbit of compassion towards anyone. Thank you for setting a great example to everyone Emi and supporting all of the awesome causes that are out there. By backing these causes you are bringing awareness that they might not have achieved otherwise.

I discovered this awesome group on facebook and I immediately joined. RANTS RAVES & REVIEWS is owned and run by Kiki N Nazii and she does a fabulous job. This group is for marketing agents whom are affiliated with Smiley360, Influenster, BzzAgent and Crowdtap and they can get feedback, share information, give opinions or just come in and vent.

I love how Kiki lets you be yourself and share information that can benefit other people. Also all the members thus far are courteous and informative. This group isn't just for marketers with the companies listed above. She encourages all marketing agents to join.

I just want to say that this is the best group I have found thus far. Although there aren't very many members yet. I think this group is going to succeed in ways Kiki has never imagined. Your going to grow very quickly Kiki and thank you for letting me join your great group.

Four Sigma Foods Mushroom Coffee with Lion's Mane

This review is for Four Sigma Foods Mushroom Coffee with Lion's Mane, 10 Count (Grocery)
I am drinking this coffee as I am writing this review and I love it. I was anxious to try this coffee but also hesitant because I have never tried a product of this nature. When I opened the pouch I sniffed because I was expecting a strong scent. There is no strong scent. It does smell like coffee but also has a subtle mushroom scent. It is similar to a fruity, earthy scent. It actually smells really good. This coffee is instant and I didn't even realize it when I requested it. I have never liked instant coffee because the taste is so strong. Four Sigma Foods Mushroom Coffee isn't strong. You can taste the Lions Mane Mushroom Extract, it is not overpowering but subtle. It contains Lions Mane extract which benefits are Immune stimulating, antimicrobial against Aspergillus, Candida, bacilli and anti-tumoral. Extract De Chaga which is from a medicinal mushroom with these benefits, purported to reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, enhance liver health, and fight viruses. Rhodiola Sauvage which is a traditional herbal medicinal product used to relieve symptoms associated with stress such as fatigue, exhaustion, and mild anxiety. Mushroom Coffee also contains instant coffee powder. I always drink my coffee laced with cream and tons of sugar. I do not need cream or sugar with Four Sigma Foods Mushroom Coffee. The flavor stands alone and doesn't need a bunch of unnecessary additives. I will be replacing my coffee with this product. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. Four Sigma Foods Mushroom Coffee with Lion's Mane, @FourSigmaFoods, #healthyalternatives, #lifestylechange, #funguys

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This is actually an older book copyright 2005, written by Markus Zusak. The story is set in 1939, Nazi Germany, and tells the story of Liesel Meminger. She is forced to go to a foster family and during the trip she losses her brother. After her brother's burial she happens upon a book "The Grave Diggers Handbook", and thus begins her love of books. 
This book gives us more insight to the horrible tragedies that occurred during the holocaust. It reminded me of another favorite book of mine. The much loved "Diary of Anne Frank". However, this story is told from a perspective that I have never seen or heard of before. It took me a chapter or two to get it and then when I started realizing where that perspective was coming from I was like "What"? I had to flip back through the beginning chapters to make sure I was reading it right or maybe I had missed something. It did not take away from the book at all but made it more interesting as i could not put it down.
Liesel Meminger comes across as a down to earth girl whom is stronger than she will ever know. The author has made her lovable, sweet and innocent. Even though she is stealing books she does so with an enthusiasm that is not about taking away from someone. It is all about her wanting to read and discover books.
Max Vandenburg is the Jew that comes to the family in which to hide and the story grows more amazing with his admission into the story.
I love this book and have read it several times and consider it to be one of my best literary purchases ever. Every man, woman and child should read this book as it has so much to offer. I would love to see it as a mandatory read in our schools. Our children would get some much out of it.

Today I decided to try DermOrganics hair care sampler. These products are oil free as well as fragrance free and made with Organic Argan oil of Morocco. 
DermOrganics daily conditioning shampoo is sulfate free and color safe which is exactly what I needed. This product is also made from facial cleansers. I was hesitant about that as I had never heard of such a thing. This shampoo revitalizes and enlivens. It offers a luxurious lather that i wasn't expecting at all. It is also 70% organic. When I opened the bottle I did my sniff test. It smelled like soap which threw me off. I followed through with washing my hair and I loved all the rich lather. When I finished my hair smelled so clean and fresh. 
I then proceeded to DermOrganic Intensive Hair Repair Masque. It is enriched with Rice Keratin. It fortifies and repairs as well as improves elasticity. This one has a subtle salon scent which I love. I love products that give your hair a subtle salon scent. Who doesn't love going to the salon and with this product you will get that and not have to leave your home. You apply this from the roots to the ends and leave on for 1 minute. I opted for 3 minutes as I felt my hair could use the extra conditioning. When I rinsed my hair felt so soft and tangle free. 
After toweling off I applied DermOrganics leave in treatment. This product adds incredible softness and shine. Protects from thermal damage, ( I never use a hair dryer or curling iron). Restores optimum moisture balance and speeds drying time by up to 40%. 
I realized I was late for an appointment and left the house without brushing my hair at all. It was warm outside so I let my windows down on my car and let it air dry. My hair looks and feels amazing. I am impressed with these three products. I have tried other products that were not organic and they did not do as well as these. I will be investing in these. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

I have found my favorite all season body wash and lotion. Aveeno offers so many different products for all skin types. I received the Nourishing Coconut and I love it. The scent is subtle yet noticeable. I used the body wash in the shower and the lotion after shower. It made my very dry skin, soft and silky. 
They use only high quality natural ingredients. Their scientists follow high standards of ingredient selection, formulation and manufacturing, with processes that retain the strength and purity of the ingredients. 
This company has been around since 1945 and they strive to care for our natural resources and give back to our communities, leaving the world a better place. Because of this belief they are always challenging themselves to improve their products and operations. 
If every company followed this values and traditions the world would be an even better place to live. It's not enough to just love a product for what it does. It is better to love a product for what they stand for and whom they are. 

“I’m a member of the Crowdtap AVEENO® rewards program, and AVEENO® sent me samples of its AVEENO® SKIN RELIEF GENTLE SCENTTM Body Wash Nourishing Coconut to review.” 


I never thought that I could use Sweet'N Low in so many different ways. I love that I have found so many different recipes for the holidays that I can eat and drink and not have to worry about calories. I am a huge frappe fan and now I can use Sweet'N Low with my drinks to help me avoid excessive calories and sugar. The story behind this awesome creation is inspiring as well. Please enjoy. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
World War II was finally over, and with it had gone the uniformed customers of Ben Eisenstadt’s Brooklyn Navy Yard cafeteria. With four kids and two newly immigrated in-laws to support, Ben needed to find a way to make a living.
After selling the eatery’s fixtures, Ben had just enough money to purchase one tea-bag machine. Vague memories of working at a tea factory as a child (probably illegally) prompted his business interest in the tea industry. It was this machine that would forever change Ben’s life.
During a rare lunch out with his wife Betty, Ben ordered a cup of tea and attention turned to the sugar bowl. Betty had long decried fly-swarmed sugar bowls as unsanitary. “Wouldn’t it be nice if sugar came in individual bags, like tea?”
Ben then realized that packing sugar couldn’t be much different from packing teas and the idea of the individual sugar packet was born.
Working together, Ben and his son Marvin came up with the idea of a single-serve zero calorie sugar substitute packet. The name was inspired by Ben’s favorite song,“Sweet and Low.” The pink color was chosen so the packets would stand out in the sugar bowl. With the brand look and name established, Sweet’N Low received Federal Trademark Registration No. 1,000,000.
For the first 6 years of being in market,Sweet’N Low was only available in restaurants and coffee shops. In 1963,
Sweet’N Low made its debut in grocery stores so people could pick up a box of their favorite zero calorie sweetener and enjoy its sweetness at home.
