New Year's Facts by the Numbers Infographic

       Wishing You Health and Happiness for 2013!

       Here are some facts and stats about New Year's traditions supplied by the History Channel. I am surprised to read that only 44% of American adults plan to share a midnight kiss. What do they do instead?
       This year I will be celebrating at a big New Year's Eve Party. They will be showing the Times Square Ball Drop and I'm sure that I will be drinking champagne. This will be the first year that I will not be making a New Year's resolution. I end up breaking them after a few weeks anyway.
      What about you? How will you be ringing in the New Year? What resolutions will you be making?

My Review

Downloading and printing these Printable Christmas Games are quick and easy. I used my office photocopier to print extra copies of the trivia games at work.  Once the trivia games were distributed, it became very competitive in the office.  A Christmas Story Trivia, Funny Christmas Song Mad Libs, Office Christmas Party Mad Libs, and Christmas Cracker Hard Trivia were some of the favorite games. We are already planning on doing the Gift Grab Gift Exchange and Giant Printable Board Game next year.

Python Printable Christmas Games provide hours of fun and a load of laughter. I can't wait to give the all the kids own their "packet" on Christmas Eve at our large family gathering. There are more than 20 children ranging from 3 to 17.

What is Toe Juice?

What is Toe Juice? 

Toe Juice is a fast drying liquid that promotes beautiful and healthy skin. Toe Juice is enhanced with DermaVine, a blend of plant based extracts including Willow Bark, Lemon Peel, and Cinnamonum extracts.

 Toe Juice can be applied almost on your body for a variety of ailments and conditions such as:

    toe juice
  • Acne 
  • Athletes Foot
  • Cold Sores 
  • Diabetic Eczema 
  • Foot Problems 
  • Ichthyosis Psoriasis
  • Insect Bites 
  • Jock Itch 
  • Miscellaneous Skin 
  • Irritation Rashes 
  • Ringworm 
  • Sunburn 
  • Warts
  • And Many More

Who Can Use Toe Juice?

Toe Juice can be used on the whole family. It is safe for newborns, pregnant and nursing women, and the elderly. It is also safe for diabetics, cancer survivors, and chemo-patients. Toe Juice does not bleach or lighten skin tone no matter the ethnicity. 

How to Use Toe Juice

Apply directly to irritated skin as often as needed. Pour on or apply with cotton swab or cotton ball. Use Toe Juice for 10-14 days for best results. 

My Review

       My husband regularly complained of dry feet that ache after a long day of wearing steel-toe boots. His heals started to crack once the weather got colder. At night he would later his feet up with lotions and creams. He even applied liquid band-aid to help repair the cracks. I had to put my foot down when he starting using my pedicure kit, pumice stone, and my girly smelling lotions.
       Since he refused to get a pedicure I offered him a bottle of Toe Juice. He was skeptical of the name but agreed to try it. Unlike lotions and creams, Toe Juice is not greasy or messy. Toe Juice is an alcohol-based liquid. Once the alcohol evaporates, the DermaVine aids dry and irritated skin leaving a nice citrus scent behind. My husband was pleased that it was not floral and sweet like some of my lotions.
       After using Toe Juice for a few days, I noticed that my husband’s feet were not as dry and cracked. His complaining about them was also less frequent. He would not allow me to take before and after pictures of his feet because he was self-conscious about the way that they looked. We are both happy with the results of Toe Juice. What would use Toe Juice for?

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Line Rescues Dry Skin #GotItFree

During Hurricane Sandy I had many house guests. Although I didn't have electricity for days, I had hot water and a gas grill and stove. My Bzz Kit filled with Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Face Care line was displayed in the bathroom, waiting to rescue my skin.
With no distractions of TV and technology this became the perfect time to test out these products.

One day, the girls and I had a night reminiscent of our high school and college "slumber parties". We giggled, told spooky ghost stories, and made up each other's faces.

We loved the gentle fragrance of Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Line. We also loved that the products are non-greasy and hydrate dry skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and absorbs quickly.

Knowing that Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Line is 99% natural and enhanced with probiotic technology was also a big plus amount the ladies. These products are also dermatologist tested and noncomedogenic.
When the lights finally came back on we could clearly see how radiant our faces looked and felt. All thanks to Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Face Care.

Products tested:
  • Intense Hydration Night Cream $18
  • Intense Hydration Treatment Mask $18
  • Intense Hydration Day Lotion $18
For more information on Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Line visit their website.

I received a product sample, coupon, collateral or other special premium from BzzAgent.

Spooky Halloween Statistics (infographic)

       As a child I remember warnings from my parents about poisoned Halloween candy and razor blades found in apples. My friends would sit at the lunch table and discuss a "stories" that they "heard", from their parents, about a friend of the family whose child died either from eating the poisoned candy or swallowing the razor blade that was hidden in the apple. All because they ate the candy before their parents thoroughly looked it over. One friend would always say "I don't know of one child who would eat an apple when they are holding a bag of candy." 

        Sometimes the full candy review would took days. Of course my parents picked out their favorite candy and threw away half of the rest. But as a child I was just happy to be allowed to eat candy. A few friends wouldn't even get to eat any candy. Their parents would take their trick or treat bag to work, either at a hospital or doctor's office, to get the candy x rayed for pins and razor blades.   

       While checking your child's Halloween is still a good idea, there are more scary things to worry about. Lead-based face paint, obesity, and diabetes are the real "dangers" this Halloween.

       What things are you worried about this Halloween?Spooky Halloween Statistics [infographic]

The mineral makeup is infused with nourishing vitamins, botanicals, minerals, antioxidants, and peptides. They are fantastic for your skin and don't clog your pores.

I selected Perfecting Finish Mineral Liquid Foundation in Vanilla,  Magic Satin, and Mineral Eye Shadow Duo in Valle Dorado from their online catalog to review. I wanted to try out some of Mia Mariu's famous products. Initially I was worried that I would select the wrong color makeup, but their shade finder helped me select the correct shade for my skin tone.

About Their Makeup


Perfecting Finish Mineral Liquid Foundation is an oil free, hydrating foundation that offers all-day coverage. Natural Minerals, Green Tea, Lecithin, Vitamins A & E illuminates and nurtures your skin. The end result is an age-minimizing foundation that leaves the complexion with an even skin tone and a flawless all-day refined finish even in hot temperatures and humidity. The Perfecting Finish Mineral Liquid Foundation is suitable for all skin types. (1 fl. oz.) Price $25


The Illuminating Magic Satin is the applied final touch for your makeup. It gives your skin a beautiful glow.  Magic Satin is made with Oats and Shea Butter providing your skin with a calming effect while revealing a healthy look anytime. Illuminating Magic Satin  can be used on cheekbones, as an eye shadow base,  over lips and décolleté. (2.5 g) price $17


The Mineral Eye Shadow Duo is made with pure minerals and luxurious color pigments. This makeup glides on gently and lasts for hours without smudging, fading or creasing. You can also use the shadow duo to define your brows with natural silky color. I chose the shade of Valle Dorado. I found that this shade of eyeshadow was very versitile and could be worn during the day or night and even everyday. The nutural tone make my blue eyes pop.  (2.8 g). Price $18

I love the idea of using natural skin care that is of a professional quality. Overall I felt that my skin glowed and looked beautiful when wearing Mia Mariu’s makeup. Even though I was wearing makeup, my skin looked very natural and radiant. Visit Mia Mariu’s website and take a look at their collection. What products would you like to try?
