Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh Review and Giveaway! Ends April 5th

As a Purex Insider, I was given a bottle of the new Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh.

So what is the new Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh?  It is a in-wash fragrance booster.

Here is my bottle:

Here is the back of the bottle so you can see how you use it.

I am a person that loves fragrance and wants my clothes/towels/sheets to smell amazing.  So I added the crystals to my washer. 

I also used detergent and liquid fabric softener.  Pulling the clothes out of the washer, they smelled AMAZING.  The dryer did seem to take out most of the smell.  But I'm wearing a shirt right now and if I put my nose to the fabric, it does still smell really fresh and I've worn it all day. 

In addition, I do think with smelly clothes (workout clothes for example), this product will probably help a lot.  I run and do P90X3 so my clothes can get pretty smelly.  But after using this product, they came out smelling perfectly fine.

All My Cards

So if you follow me on Instagram, you might see how I pull some tarot/oracle cards from time to time for myself.  I pull those for guidance from angels/guides/etc. to help me on my path.

Yesterday, I got a new card deck - Archangel Oracle Cards from Doreen Virtue, Ph.D (got mine on  I had a reading back in December from Michelle at  She is the real deal.  Anyways, she used these cards.  Since then, I've been trying to seek guidance from angels/guides.  So I thought I'd buy these cards as an easier way to get guidance from them plus I wanted to learn all the Archangels' names and what their specialties are.  These cards help with that.

Here are all my card decks I now have (with the exception of my Cupid Cards which I haven't used in a loooong time due to no special someone being in my life lol).

The first deck is the traditional Tarot cards.  For me, these are the 'serious' overall big picture sort of cards.  I use these every few days.  The Psychic Tarot Cards are so dang pretty and I think I love these the best.  A lot of times I'll pull certain Chakra cards and I take this as a sign to do some sort of Chakra meditation (even though I am too impatient to do meditation - I try to do a short one anyways).  The Enchanted Map Oracle cards are pretty too and I think these are to show you where you are going.  I normally do these everyday with the Psychic cards.  And then you have the Archangel Oracle Cards I just got.  I'll try to use those everyday. 

Again, you can check me out on Instagram and see what cards I pick and the meaning.  Here's a card I picked yesterday from the Map cards.  So pretty, right?

Basically it is a sign that my waiting is over, all my hard work has paid off, and the things I hoped for are no longer beyond my scope.  I have the ability to reach for the stars and find one with my name on it.  Spread my wings and soar. 

Also, are you one who sees repeating numbers all the time?  Like 11:11, 9:11, 4:44, etc.?  Well, here is a site that addresses what each of them mean: 

Repeating Numbers

Have a good weekend!

Win K-cups from Roger's Family Company! Ends April 1, 2014


Sponsored by: Rogers Family Company

Hosted by:What The Buzz Is All About

Co-Hosted by: BloggieAway

The following remarks are from the blog What The Buzz Is All About. 
I love coffee! I drink it from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed. My cabinets are full of different flavors and varieties of K-Cups. I wouldn't want it any other way. Recently I was sent some single serve coffee from Rogers Family Company in exchange for my honest review. These single serve coffee's can be used in any Keurig and other single cup brewers that use K-cup coffee cartridges. What makes this single serve cup and it's packaging stand out from all the other companies is the fact that it is 97% bio-degradable. Why 97%? Because the lid and mesh filter
around the coffee grains are not bio-degradable and need to be thrown away in the trash.

The four flavors I received in my bundle were Breakfast Blend, Java Love, Gorilla Decaf and French Roast. All of the flavors I received are regular roast except for the French Roast. That one is a dark roast. Since I like my coffee on the lighter side I had my friend try the French Roast and she loved it.
Right when I opened the box of coffee I can smell the rich aroma from the single serve cups. The aroma is very nice and lets me know I am getting a great product. Actually, as I am sitting at my desk typing this I smell the coffee coming out of the box which is over an arms length away.

I loved all the flavors but I really liked the breakfast blend. The flavor was not harsh and the coffee was smooth. I added a bit of vanilla creamer for the perfect taste.
The mesh filter, similar to a tea bag, is not affected by the sharp instruments inside the Keurig. The hole is punch on top and water streams through just like it would on any other K-Cup.
The best part of these single serve coffee's is the price. It cost only $6.99 for a pack of 12!! They also sell bulk 80 count packages for only $34.99. That is a great way to not only save the environment but money too!!
As if I haven't said enough great things about this company they are giving one of my lucky readers the same exact coffee bundle that I received. That's right 4 boxes of single serve coffee!! Stay tuned because the giveaway is coming up very soon!! =)

One lucky reader will receive one (1) 12-count box of each: French Roast, Gorilla Decaf, Java Love, and Breakfast Blend (48 total single cups.) The approximate retail value of this prize pack is $27.96. This giveaway will start on March 10 at 1am EST and end on April 1 at 11:59pm EST and is open to residents of the contiguous United States. The winner will be contacted by email within 24 hours of the giveaway ending. To enter please use the Giveaway Tools application below. Good Luck!

How Does It Get Any Better Than This?

You guys should check out this video sometime if you're looking for your life to get better.  I swear this works!

I started saying it this morning while I was trying to figure out what to do with my curly mop trying to find a bobby pin.  I ended up finding (not only the bobby pin) but my gold earring I've been looking for for months!!!  I was so ecstatic because those earrings are the only ones I have that go with brown outfits (and I wear brown every other day practically).  So happy.  I kept saying it.  I found the perfect headband that I completely forgot I had.  Then I was driving to work down the 3 mile road I drive to get to the highway and normally I hit 4 out of the 6 lights EVERY time and the other 2 most of the time.  I didn't hit ANY of the lights!  ANY!!!!  Insane.  And then when I was home earlier, I dropped a coffee mug right on a breakable surface and it didn't even break!  Seriously, it was like it had a force field around it.  I know I know.  Not like winning the lottery but 'How does it get any better than this?'  :)  I mean it can't hurt to do it.  And I also think it makes you more present in the moment by acknowledging what is going on at that moment. 

Oh, and here is a pic of my hairdo after a long day at work.  Sock bun city.

P90X3 Phase 2 - Done! On To Phase 3!

Well, boys and girls.  I have finished Phase 2 of P90X3.  I think what I take away from Phase 2 is that I am basically mostly muscle now.  I have muscles in places I've never seen before.  And this is coming from a marathon runner! 

I still do not have abs yet but I have lost enough weight that I am hoping the abs come through at the end of Phase 3. 

I have lost 4lbs as of today since February 4th (118.4lbs to 114.4lbs - I'm 5'2").  I started P90X3 January 6th but didn't weigh myself until February 4th because I was scared.  lol  Again, I'm still right on with my diet (find out about that HERE). 

I should post 60 day pics I think on Thursday so watch for those.  The next phase of P90X3 is basically one week I'm doing what I did in Phase 2 (weight type workouts) and then the next week Phase 1 type workouts.  I do want to be able to do the Crow by the time I'm done with this.  I am so close.  I will try to take a picture of myself doing it if I can conquer that.  So watch for that!  What is the Crow, you may ask?  Here is a pic of it (not me): 

Crane Yoga Pose... One of my P90X goals. I got this up to 4 secs!  But hey I'll keep trying!
