Dermagist Giveaway

Welcome to Dermagist Complete Rejuvenation system Giveaway

  sponsored by Dermagist.com
Hosted by:
The Complete Rejuvenation System was been sent to me for review and was immediately put to use. 
My raving review on Dermagist  The Miracle Cosmeceuticals for Beautiful Skin – so true!

I started with the Dermagist Instant Effect Lifting Serum. I read the simple directions and it took only one squirt to smooth it over my entire cleansed face. It was quickly absorbed. Then, I applied some on my neck. My skin tightened immediately and dried beautifully leaving that firming sensation lingering on for the longest time.  Wow! I like this.

One hour later, I tried the Dermagist Age Defying Serum for all skin types. I dotted all the areas of my face where lines were more than visible and then smoothed the lotion gently in circles until well absorbed.  I immediately liked the delicate citrus scent finding the whole experience quite soothing.

Later in the evening, after a warm shower, I applied the Dermagist Original Wrinkle Smoothing. This cream looks thick but don’t let that fool you. I dotted areas on my face and neck and smooth it out to then tap firmly on my skin to get that energy going for me. It does have a delicate fresh scent and its texture is more than light giving me a fresh feeling.

After over 30 days, I must admit that I like the results. Dermagist was able to defy the signs of aging something that many anti-aging lotions weren’t able to do – it is visible to the eye that all fine lines and wrinkles have been erased. Dermagist and my skin are getting along great! It’s all in the chemistry.  
Now, the good news is Dermagist is giving away The Complete Rejuvenation System to one lucky winner.

What a great product to have up for a giveaway. Good luck to everyone that enters.

Giveaway starts July 24 and Ends August 7, 2013
US/CAN can enter must be 18+ yrs old

Best of Luck

Masterchef - and tonight we lost...

I am sad to see her go!! I liked her and was rooting for her to be in the top ones to kick Krissy's butt! Unfortunately, for her the chocolate eclair pressure test took her out!

I don't know what the heck the other players were thinking when they flipping saved Krissy!! What on earth??!!! Really??? They should want her to be gone!! She sucks and her attitude just needs to get out of there!!! Without her there it would be so much better with positive energy and not so much BS in the air! 

What's going to happen on Big Brother tonight??

I have fallen in love with the show Big Brother! I remember watching it many years ago when the very very first one came on! Through the years I have missed a couple of seasons of it but, for the most part I am a huge fan and don't like missing it!

I absolutely LOVE that they let America do the voting for the MVP nominee this week. I have already picked out my favorites of who I want to make it to the top few and then the ones that just need to really GO HOME! Last week I was very happy with the choice of sending Jeremy's behind out the door!! He was just too full of himself to do any good in the house and was so full of himself that he didn't see what was rightfully coming...a blindside! He knew about it towards the last day or so but, before that he wasn't thinking that he would be going home but, so glad that he did!

Who are your top people that you want to see it make it to the end? I like Howard, I think that he messed up lying to Helen about the Moving Company alliance but I still like him. And I like McCrea too. I was liking Amanda but, now that she's been running her mouth some it just seems to me that she might be turning into a bully or something trying to put it in the head of the HoH who she wants out and has to get out etc. This week Judd didn't listen to her and didn't put up Howard so he better watch it b/c if Amanda wins HoH then he might be next on the block!

I use to like Helen but, now it feels as if she's a bit "fake" so I am no longer rooting for her. Judd, I'm not too sure..I like him but, is he a floater?

I can't wait to watch it tonight..love having it on 3 nights a week for relaxing!

Getting ready for Back To School!!

My teens are already getting ready to head back to school!! Where did the summer go?? They start school in less than 3 weeks now! Oklahoma has always started school earlier then others and I haven't quite figured out yet why that is? Here in TX they have until the first week of Sept to go back but not in OK, its always mid Aug. So my teens, two of which are in high school are getting things together and getting ready to head back to school for the new school year! I can't believe that I have a Sophomore and a Junior this year! And then my youngest is going to be in 8th. So next year all three of them in high school!! That will be fun! And my oldest is getting ready for college!! Wow, am I really that old to be saying my first born is about to enter college? I'm only 40!! :)

Have you heard of Teespring? My Teespring review

There is a cool newer site out there in which I think is an excellent idea!! The company is called Teespring
And what this company does is, it lets you design your own t-shirts and sell them with NO upfront fees!!

It's a great idea for anyone that has maybe a fundraiser that they are trying to get money for or maybe they need money for a trip that a church is going on etc. Whatever your reason, you can surely raise some extra money by going to this site and checking it out!!

And did I mention that its FREE and no upfront costs? I went on there and played with the designer and made a t-shirt. There are tutorials where you can get help if needed or you can just mess around with it yourself and see what you come up with. And then once you have the design on your t-shirt that you are happy with, you promote it!! That easy. Set a deadline for however many t-shirts you want to sell and you set the price of each of them. Then just promote!!

And your customers aren't charged until you reach your goal and then they are charged and sent out the t-shirt soon after so there is nothing for you to  do as far as shipping etc.

This is awesome for ANY organization/business or anyone that wants to get the word out there about a cause that they are supporting etc.

Check it out today!! Teespring

Stay Calm  Keep Blogging

Every time that I sit down to blog, whether it be a post about a tv show or maybe a review that I've done, or a blogger op etc., It always calms me to get involved in the things that I put on my blog. It relaxes me and keeps my mind going on great things that I am involved with. In today's society there are so many negative things going on and I find that only a few things keeps me calm and relaxed and one of them is blogging. I do this blog as well as my personal blog but, either one that I am doing, it calms me.

If you like it, you can buy one for $12.

You won't be charged until I reach my goal, which I have set for Aug. 5th.

Bart's Cookies Giveaway

Manic Mama of 2 was given the chance to sample a couple different flavors of Bart's Cookies recently, and let me tell you these cookies are addictive!

What a great giveaway!! I would love to try these cookies!! They look SO delicious! Guess that it doesn't help that I'm craving chocolate right now! Good luck to everyone that enters.
  Order The World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies From BartsCookies.com

When Bart contacted me for the chance to review his cookies, it was unlike anything I had ever heard. He asked me what kinds that I wanted to try because he would be baking that day. He wanted to make sure that the cookies that I got for review were the freshest that they could be. It made me think...wow, this is not just a company that sends out cookies that are days or even weeks old when you order. I am under the impression that when you order something, it is made to order, which is awesome!
Bart Smith Makes The World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
From his webpage, he just looks like an inviting man! He looks like someone that you would trust :)
I received my cookies only a couple days after putting in my request. I choose the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and the Dark Chocolate Chip cookies. These were perfect for our family because my hubs is addicted to anything that is peanut butter and chocolate together whether it be cookies, candy, or ice cream. I try to stick primarily to dark chocolate because it is good for the skin & healthier for you too!

Bart Smith Makes The World's Best Chocolate Chip CookiesBart Smith Makes The World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I kept hearing how awesome and amazing Bart's Cookies were, and so when I tried them myself....ALL THE RUMORS WERE TRUE!

Holy cow, we went through a dozen of these bad boys in one night. The same night that we received them as a matter of fact. They are perfect with milk for dunking :)
Bart was amazing because he also threw in a sampler bag of two White Macadamia Nut cookies.

He has such fun pictures at his website it was hard to pick which ones that I wanted to use for this review. FYI, the cookies were gone before I could get a picture of my own for this review. Just that darn good!
They are definitely reasonably priced for being baked whenever you place your order. No refrigerated or frozen dough to worry about!
