Prize Candle: It’s Like Cracker Jacks Without The Calories!

I’m a TasteMaker Mom & was provided a product to facilitate this review. No other compensation has been rec’d, & all opinions are mine. 

logo (2)Are you a candle person? I’m a candle person, I love the way they make the house smell. If I’m having a tough day, I can light a scented candle and it always seems to cheer me up & lighten the mood. 

I’d been hearing about Prize Candle for a while, but had never purchased one of their candles. I was eager to try them out for myself.
new-about-us Prize Candles are all natural soy candles, with a prize in every one. The rings in the candles are valued anywhere from $10 all the way up to $5,000! It’s like a box of Cracker Jacks, without the calories! Remember when you were little, and your Mom would buy you a box of Cracker Jacks? I remember & I couldn’t wait to find my prize at the bottom of the box. PC_640x640-4 copy You can re-live those good ole days, except this time, you get a beautiful ring and a fantastic smelling candle. The candles retail for $24.99 and burn for up to 40 hours. I received the Jasmine Neroli candle & it smells delicious…(I also detect a hint of baby powder in it, or maybe that’s just me!)

HOW IT WORKS

When you get your candle, the prize will not be visible, so here’s what you need to do.

1. Light & burn your candle until the prize becomes visible. Enjoy the fragrance… and wait for it! (Confession time, I couldn’t wait- I burned my candle for 5 days straight and finally just dug my prize pack out!)

2. Once the prize pack becomes visible, blow out the candle. When the wax has cooled a bit, use a pair of tweezers to extract the pack. Unwrap your prize.new-how-it-works-2

 

 3. Enter the code included with your prize at PrizeCandle.com for instant appraisal!new-how-it-works-3It’s THAT easy, & quite a bit of fun too. I was so excited to see what I’d get… you wanna see it?! photo 2 (7)photo 3 (4)photo 4 (5)photo 5 (4)photo 2 (8) Isn’t she a beauty? For those wondering, she’s worth $25 … I cant wait to see what I get next time! And guess what? I’m still enjoying my candle. 

If you’re a candle person, like me, I highly recommend Prize Candles…I mean you’re already buying candles, right? Might as well get some bling in return! 

 

 

I’m Sleeping Like A Baby With REM-Fit #FitFluential

I’m a  FitfFuential Ambassador & have been provided a product(s) in order to facilitate this review. No other form of compensation has been rec’d and all opinions are mine. 

securedownload (1)66With school starting back up, and all the hustle & bustle of life, sleep becomes a precious commodity. A good night’s rest is vital & necessary in order to lead a productive life. Physical fitness is also something that we can’t do without. Keeping our bodies healthy needs to be a top priority. 

When you lead an active lifestyle-hitting up the gym, running, participating in sports-you need to make sure your body has time to recover. In other words, sleep is king! When I was offered the opportunity to review a few REM-Fit products (pillow protectors, mattress protectors and pillow), I jumped on it. Anything that can help me fall asleep & get a good night’s rest is very much appreciated. I’m a light sleeper & often suffer from insomnia.

Let’s begin with a video, to help introduce you to the REM-Fit line. 

   Now that you know a bit more about REM-Fit, I’ll show you what I reviewed. 

First up, the REM-FIT ENERGIZE SMOOTH MATTRESS PROTECTORRemfit_Energize_MP_ImageA_Lphoto 2 (6)Things I like about this mattress protector:

It’s made of TENCEL®, which is

  • Naturally thermo-regulating
  • Naturally prohibits bacteria growth
  • Naturally hypo allergenic
  • Naturally wicks away moisture
  • Great for sensitive skin sufferers
  • Softer than cotton
  • Ideal for an athletic lifestyle

Miracle Membrane®

Protect-A-Bed’s proprietary Miracle Membrane® provides the best protection for your mattress by providing a proven moisture barrier against spills and stains. It also creates the healthiest sleep zone possible by protecting the sleeper from dust mites, allergens and other irritants.

I was impressed with the softness of this protector. As I removed it from the box and put it on my bed, I just wanted to wrap up in it! When I placed my fitted sheet over it- I felt confident that my mattress was in good hands. (Comes with a 10 yr warranty.) I only wish I’d had this mattress protector a few years back…BEFORE my youngest had multiple nose bleeds in my bed. LOL! 

Next up, REM-FIT ENERGIZE SMOOTH PILLOW PROTECTORphoto 3 (3)photo 4 (4)
 This has all the same attributes as the mattress protector. I like that it will protect my pillows from dust mites and other yucky allergens. And once again, great protection from little noses that bleed! Just put it on your pillow, zip it up, then put your own pillowcase over it. (Comes with a 5 yr warranty.) Lastly, I’m going to be talking about my fave REM-Fit product…

REM-FIT REST ADJUSTABLE PILLOW! Remfit_Rest_Adjustable_Pillow_ImageA_Lphoto 1 (6)Remfit_Rest_Adjustable_Pillow_ImageC_LThis pillow has been my best friend for the past 2 weeks! OMG! First, it’s adjustable…you can remove some of the filling if its too fluffy for you. Have you ever seen that before? I hadn’t. 

It is SO comfy, literally like sleeping on a cloud- I LOVE it! My head hits my pillow and I am out… for the entire night…that’s unheard of for me. It also has it’s own protector and is just amazing. I cannot stress to you enough how awesome this pillow is, it will change your life! (Pillow comes with a 5 yr warranty.)

 As if their products weren’t enough,  Protect-A-Bed® launched a new video channel, ‘REM-Fit Life,’ that features health and fitness tips from well-known Chicago-based CrossFit coach and personal trainer Kevin Houston. To view the YouTube ‘REM-Fit Life’ channel, visit www.youtube.com/user/REMFitLife.

Thanks to FitFluential for giving me the opportunity to learn about & try the REM-Fit line. Sweet dreams! 

Arrested For Drinking Arizona Iced Tea?! {Black in America}

This video is over a year old, but it was just recently shown to me, so I’m going to share it with all of you. Let me start off by saying I’m not posting this to bash cops, or law enforcement. There are MANY good cops out there, I know some of them personally. What I want to bring attention to are the ones that aren’t so good, the bad apples, so to speak. The ones that give good cops a bad name. THOSE are the ones that need to be weeded out of the police force- we don’t need or want bad, racist cops patrolling our streets- at least I don’t! This video has some bad language, so please be warned, here it is: 

I’m posting this to show you what happens all to frequently in the Black community. This man was drinking an Arizona Iced Tea! He wasn’t hurting anyone- when he is approached by someone that gets all up in his personal space & demands to know what he’s drinking, demands that he hand it over. If this happened to me-my first thought would be “This guy is crazy!” 

When the man drinking the tea doesn’t hand it over to the security guard(?) cop(?) he is then told he is under arrest for trespassing and resisting arrest. WHAT?! Does anyone else think that is just insane? Is it just me? 

I’m not Black, but I’m in a unique position, since many members of my family are. I’ve seen things with my very own eyes that are just wrong! I’ve been told things by family members that are unbelievable- but true. Did I ever tell you about the time my husband & I were driving cross-country and had been on the road for about 9-10 hours? We were exhausted and decided to stop driving for the night & check into a hotel. Hubby got out & walked in to ask about checking in. A few seconds later, he walked back out & told me they didn’t have any vacancies-all booked up. Really?! The parking lot was pretty empty. I decided to get out and try my luck, because I just had a hunch. I walked in and asked the front desk how much it’d be for one night. The guy proceeded to ask me what type of room I wanted: double beds, queen beds or 1 king bed. WHAT?! My husband had just been told, seconds earlier that they were booked up-no vacancies…now I walk in and I have my choice of rooms?! REALLY?! So, let’s get this right: No vacancies for the Black man, but choice of rooms for the non-Black woman?! 

When people say, “They’re just playing the race card,” I cringe! No, they’re not playing the race card, they’re telling you how it really is, but you refuse to accept it. You’d rather go on thinking it’s the race card, than to consider that maybe there really is something to all of this. Maybe there really are bad, racist cops out there that target Blacks, and partake in racial profiling. 

I’m not here to incite anyone, or to stir things up- I just want to share my thoughts and observations with you. I want you to watch this video, a video you might not otherwise have a chance to see. I want you to ask yourself, what’s going on here? Why did this happen, why did the security guard(?) cop(?) approach the guy in the first place? What was he doing wrong? 

Her’s another video for you, it’s an interview with the man (who happens to be ex Military,) that was arrested & the man that filmed the video.   

I will continue to talk about race relation issues, and I will continue to post videos, as I see fit. I don’t care what color, race, or ethnicity you are- we all deserve to be treated fairly- PERIOD! 

 

Litigation Costs Are Hurting CA Schools #lawsuitabuse

This is a sponsored conversation in collaboration with California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse*. All opinions are mine. 

securedownload (1) lawsuit2
The school year is about to begin, and California ’s students are about to head back into the classroom. While school districts are always stretched tight, one thing that’s really hurting schools is abusive litigation, which is forcing districts to spend money fighting lawsuits instead of educating students. 

That’s the finding of a recent report from California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse. The report analyzed the litigation costs to 12 districts for fiscal years 2010-2011 through 2012-2013, and found that the districts combined spent more than $125.6 million on litigation, spending $96.1 million on outside counsel, and $29.4 million on verdicts and settlements. Go ahead & read the report.

The districts involved in the report are Central Unified School District (Fresno), Elk Grove Unified School District, Kern High School District, Long Beach Unified School District, Los Angeles Unified School District, San Bernardino City Unified School District, San Diego Unified School District, San Francisco Unified School District, San Jose Unified School District, Santa Ana Unified School District, and Stockton Unified School District.

The 12 districts examined in this report account for less than 20% of the total enrollment of California ’s K-12 public school districts. When the other districts are taken into account, who knows how many millions – or billions – of dollars our districts are spending? 

This report makes it clear that California ’s schools are just one more victim of the state’s plaintiffs’ attorneys, some of whom view lawsuits as a means to get rich rather than achieve justice. Because California ’s laws encourage this behavior, our students are paying the price. I don’t know about your child’s school district, but ours is hurting-we need every penny to be spent in the classrooms, not in the courtrooms!  

The $125 million spent in just three years could have been put to better use across the state. That money could have paid the salaries of more teachers, purchased new textbooks, maintained busing programs, or paid for counselors. Instead, we’re dealing with cuts to many of our programs, like music and sports-it’s just not right. 

Californians, we need to make sure, especially as the November ballot approaches, that we know whether our candidates support legal reforms that would put an end to abuse like this. Legislators need to help solve the problem by passing legislation that stops abusive lawsuits, instead of encouraging them.

Our kid’s are counting on us to do the right thing, don’t let them down!

Stop Killing Our Sons! #Ferguson #MikeBrown #HandsUpDontShoot

This past Saturday, in Ferguson, Missouri, ANOTHER unarmed Black teen was shot & killed … by the police. Mike Brown had recently graduated high school and was to start college this week-instead, his family is planning his funeral. Mike Brown was not armed, and had no prior criminal record. He was guilty, however, of being BLACK IN AMERICA.

A friend that was walking with him, said Mike Brown had his hands up in the air when he was shot. Hands In The Air! Unarmed!

In the photo below, Harvard Law students show their support of Mike Brown by raising their hands in the air #HandsUpDontShoot

BvBE-1FIYAAglwz #HandsUpDontShoot(I’ve read reports stating Mike Brown was shot by an officer from inside the officer’s patrol car. The claim said he was shot twice in the chest-he had his hands up and was begging the officer not to kill him, the officer then shot him in the head-walked up to his lifeless body and fired more rounds into him. This was reported by someone that was looking out their apartment window from nearby.)

Since the killing, Ferguson has been in turmoil. People have taken to the streets to protest the execution of Mike Brown – and they’ve been met with SWAT teams, tear gas and military-style opposition. As a US citizen, I have the right to protest, we ALL do. 

As I write this, I don’t even have the words to express how devastated I am. As the Mother of Brown sons, I am constantly concerned for their safety. Constantly worried that they will do something that a non-Black person will find threatening. Last summer, someone stole a car late one night, and ditched it in our neighborhood. The police showed up, it was close to midnight. They began scouring our subdivision, and made their way to our street-just as our 18 year old son was supposed to be getting off work. Our son walks to & from work. The police were searching under cars, behind shrubs and in trash cans-trying to find the suspect. As I looked out my window and stared at the clock, I knew my son would be rounding the corner very soon. The fear that overcame me was crippling. 

I did not want my brown-skinned, afro-wearing son to turn that corner and startle the cops…I was afraid of what they might do. I wasn’t the only one that was afraid-so was my husband. He immediately told me he was going to find our son and hopped into the car-taking my brother who was visiting us with him. My brother is in law enforcement himself. As they drove off, I prayed, prayed that they would find our son, before the cops did. 

Tragedies like the murders of Trayvon Martin & Oscar Grant were all I could think of. What if my son rounded the corner and spooked the cops? Would they reach for their guns? Would they fire first & ask questions later? The fear I felt that night was unlike anything I’d ever felt before-I thought I was going to pass out. When my husband drove up to the driveway & our son stepped out of the car- I was overjoyed.

Do ALL mothers experience what I did, when the cops show up in their neighborhood? Probably not, unless their sons are brown or black. I’ve learned that people (America as a whole) doesn’t care about our Brown & Black sons. If they did, they’d be outraged every time an unarmed black teenager/man is killed by the police. But they’re not, not like I am. Not like so many other mothers of brown & black sons are. 

I’m here to speak up for ALL our brown & black sons! I will continue to speak up, to let you know that OUR SONS MATTER! You cant just kill them, leave their bodies out on the streets for hours and go about your business. STOP KILLING OUR SONS! 

This will not be my only post about this-so if you find it uncomfortable or don’t want to read about this sort of thing, please unfollow me now. I have so much to say about this, but for now, these are all the words I can muster up. It’s been a devastating week, I’m heartbroken, because no one cares about our sons… 

UnitedHealthcare Helping With Children’s Medical Expenses #UHCCF

This is a sponsored conversation, in collaboration with UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation. All opinions are mine.  

I’m no stranger to medical bills. Not only have I had my own health emergencies to deal with, but my children have had medical issues also. From stitches to surgery, my kids have spent ample time in the hospital. Aside from worrying about their health, once everything is said & done, you have the medical bills to deal with. As we all know, those charges can quickly add up-leaving you with an enormous bill. There is now help for families facing huge medical expenses. 

securedownload (1) UHC
The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF), is seeking grant applications from families in need of financial assistance to help pay for their child’s health care treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plan. (You do NOT need to be enrolled with UnitedHealthcare to qualify for this program, anyone with insurance may apply)

Qualifying families can receive up to $5,000 per grant, with a lifetime maximum of $10,000 per child, to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids. 

To be eligible for a grant, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs. Parents or legal guardians may apply for grants at www.UHCCF.org, and there is no application deadline.

 In 2013, UHCCF awarded more than 1,700 medical grants, worth $5.6 million, to children and their families across the United States for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down Syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy.

social-side-bear

To help raise funds for its child medical grant program, UHCCF has published a new children’s book, “Oliver & Hope’s Adventure Under the Stars” – the second book in the Oliver & Hope series.

The new 32-page hand-illustrated book continues the story of Oliver, the lovable bear, and Hope, the spirited butterfly, as they join their friends Millie the barn owl and Chewie the English bulldog, for their first camping trip. The night is filled with amazing discoveries and silly games that make the shadows a little less scary and the adventure a lot more fun. The book follows last year’s award-winning book, “Oliver & Hope’s Amusing Adventure.”

Both “Oliver & Hope’s Adventure Under the Stars” and “Oliver & Hope’s Amusing Adventure” are available on Amazon.com for $13.95 each. The first 250 people who purchase an “Oliver & Hope’s Adventure Under the Stars” book will receive a Chewie the English bulldog plush toy, to be shipped separately. 

book2_banner_for_ImpartiumProceeds from UHCCF products, including the Oliver & Hope books, help fund UHCCF grants that help families pay for children’s medical expenses not covered, or not fully covered, by commercial insurance. Also, organizations and private donors can make tax-deductible donations to UHCCF at www.UHCCF.org. Donations are used for grants to help children and families in the region in which they are received.

Both books were written and illustrated by Meg Cadts and Samantha Fitch. (Meg Cadts is the pen name for the UHCCF team of writers and contributors.)

The Oliver and Hope characters also host their own page on the UHCCF website, Oliver & Hope’s Clubhouse (www.UHCCF.org/oliverandhope), which features FREE audiobook versions of the books, activities and games.

Big “Thank You” to #UHCCF for this program and for helping so many parents defray the costs of their children’s medical bills. If YOU think you qualify for this program, please apply today, and share this post with other parents you know. 

 

Cyberstalking & Cyberharassment Laws – Blogging 101

th-5Did you know ALL 50 STATES have laws that explicitly address electronic forms of stalking, harassment or cyber bullying?! 

Cyberstalking & Cyberharassment are both Criminal Offenses…Punishable by fines and/or JAIL TIME! 

As a blogger, I’ve experienced my fair share of cyberstalking & folks leaving me harassing comments & emails. I’ve saved every one of those comments & emails. If I ever need to press charges in a court of law, I have ALL the evidence I need. th-4

States have enacted “cyberstalking” or “cyberharassment” laws or have laws that explicitly include electronic forms of communication within more traditional stalking or harassment laws. In addition, recent concerns about protecting minors from online bullying or harassment have led states to enact “cyberbullying” laws.  However, other state laws may still apply to those who harass, threaten or bully others online, although specific language may make the laws easier to enforce.

Cyberstalking.  Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet, email or other electronic communications to stalk, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors. Cyberstalking may be considered the most dangerous of the three types of Internet harassment, based on a posing credible threat of harm. Sanctions range from misdemeanors to felonies.no-cyberstalking Cyberharassment. Cyberharassment differs from cyberstalking in that it may generally be defined as not involving a credible threat. Cyberharassment usually pertains to threatening or harassing email messages, instant messages, or to blog entries or websites dedicated solely to tormenting an individual. Some states approach cyberharrassment by including language addressing electronic communications in general harassment statutes, while others have created stand-alone cyberharassment statutes.

A word of warning to those that may be considering sending me unwanted comments, or emails, or anything else: DON’T DO IT! 

To those that have already sent me harassing comments/emails: STOP IT NOW! If I receive one more email or comment from someone that has been harassing me in the past- I AM GOING TO PRESS CHARGES! This is your first & last warning.

 As they say, DON’T DO THE CRIME IF YOU CAN’T DO THE TIME!

 

Music Soothes My Soul … {Velodyne Headphones GIVEAWAY}

I have rec’d no compensation or product for this post… NOTHING. I’m participating in this Giveaway as a treat for my readers, and as a favor for a friend. All opinions are mine. 

logo (1)
I’m a music junkie- always have been, always will be. I was groovin’ to Prince before most people had ever heard of him, thanks to my typing partner in high school who introduced me to Prince and so many other great musicians. I’d heard Prince on the radio, crooning “I Wanna Be Your Lover” but didn’t know any of his other songs, until my typing partner educated me. I can listen to Prince all day & all night & never tire of his voice.

SONY DSCIn high school, I told everyone I knew that I was going to marry Michael Jackson… yep, I sure did! I’d been a fan ever since I could remember and I just felt that if I ever met him, we’d fall in love & the rest would be history. (I’m serious!) The guys used to tease me, and call Michael names, and I would always defend him. You couldn’t tell me nothing about Michael-I loved me some him!

Music has gotten me through some very difficult, low times in my life. It’s also been there for me in some of my most amazing times. Fact is, music is ALWAYS there…always soothing me, inspiring me, healing me, and touching my soul in ways that nothing else can. Music has the ability to transport me to another time, another place, it’s a constant in my life.SONY DSCI’m never without my music, whether I’m at home, in the car, or traveling- I always have my tunes with me. My kids are the same way-they’ve been around music since before they were born- I made sure of that. 

Whenever I travel, whether it be for business or pleasure- I make sure to take my headphones with me. I put them on and forget all about the baby crying behind me, or the fact that the plane is experiencing a wee bit more turbulence than I’m comfortable with. 


Velodyne has some really nice headphones, and they’re on sale right now, at a great price. These are so affordable, I can even buy a pair for my little guy & not worry that he might break or lose them. 

 

GIVEAWAY! 

I’m happy to be partnering with my friend, The Kitty Bradshaw, she’s giving away not one, but two (2) pairs of Velodyne vLeve Headphones! Holla! Go ahead & enter here & then head on over to IG and enter there too! Good luck!

Your Promise Is Our Promise-Johnson’s Baby

This is a sponsored post, in collaboration with Johnson’s Baby & Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions are mine. 

Johnsons_baby_logo
As a Mother, it’s my responsibility to keep my children safe at all times. That can sometimes be a difficult task, especially as my kids get older. My little one doesn’t always understand why he can’t do certain things (like go to the mall by himself, uhh-not gonna happen!) or why he isn’t allowed to play at the park without adult supervision (once again, not gonna happen!) 

securedownload-15Kids don’t always understand why we do the things we do, but that doesn’t stop us from doing them, right?! As a parent, I’ll do whatever it takes to guarantee the safety of my children. When my kids were newborns, I made a promise to them to keep them safe and out of harm’s way. That hasn’t changed, no matter how old they get, or how grown they think they may be. 

I’m obligated to provide a safe, nurturing environment for my children. I want my kids to be safe, and healthy. Not only am I concerned for their physical safety, but I want to make sure they are getting all the nutrients their growing bodies need. I try to prepare healthy meals for them and make sure I always have lots of fruits and veggies on hand for them to snack on. I’m reading labels a lot more than I used to, and steering clear of artificial flavors,  colors, and ingredients. I buy organic as often as I can! 

pink-subtitleI’m also reading labels on the things that go ON our bodies too. It doesn’t make any sense to take care of the inside, if you aren’t also taking care of the OUTSIDE. ‘Ya know what I mean?! Chemical additives in lotions, shampoos/conditioners, and body wash are all of concern to me and many of my Mom friends. 

Johnson’s Baby feels the same way. When they heard that some Moms were concerned about the ingredients in their products -THEY LISTENED- and decided to take a stand and change their product formulas. It’s not that their products were unsafe, they just wanted us -THE CONSUMER- to have peace of mind. 

Changing their products was a labor of love for us moms & our precious little ones. Johnson’s Baby created this video to share their promise to Moms everywhere:

 products

As their seven newly reformulated products hit the store shelves, Johnson’s Baby is launching a campaign called “Your Promise Is Our Promise,” to express their ongoing commitment to Moms everywhere. Just as Moms make promises to their kids, Johnson’s Baby promises Moms that we don’t have to worry about using their products on our precious little ones. banner-bg-baby
