New Year New You New Way To Get Fashionable Fitness Gear #pvBody

Here is my bodies story in a nutshell. I was a skinny Minnie until puberty hit! Then just looking at a cupcake and I was gain weight! I’ve always been thick, sometimes super extra thick with a extra side of thick! A few years back a lost about 75 pounds and we got pregnant with Alice! We struggled with fertility for more than 5 yrs. Our Dr’s told me ALL THE TIME if I lost some weight it would make it easier for us to get pregnant. They were right!! I tried SO HARD not to gain a lot of weight while I was pregnant with Alie. I only gained 25 pounds, not too bad huh? I lost nearly ALL of it before I was even out of the hospital once I had her. Then breastfeeding helped me keep it off. But now, it’s been more than 2 years since I stopped breastfeeding and I’ve put on about 40 pounds! YES FORTY POUNDS!

So….here is where New Year NEW ME comes in play! I have to work out. Plus, with me being as sick as I just was I feel like I really need to take better care of myself.  We all know you can’t get into better shaped without working out. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we had workout clothes that made us feel great, felt great and was fashionable?

Do You Need Glasses?

If you do then is where you should look!  It’s an online glasses store for prescription glasses and sunglasses. I especially love their site because of their New share-able Virtual Mirror feature. You just upload a picture of yourself and then you can try on glasses from their site. You can even try it in the window below! Seriously, give it a try!!

glasses yes 1

I was able to use the Virtual Mirror and decided on these frames. I wanted light, metal, barely there kinda frames.

glasses NO

The Virtual Mirror was also great in showing me what did NOT look good. It’s great for all those “fad” styles. I can’t tell y’all how many sunglasses I’ve bought in the latest fad and they just end up in a drawer somewhere because they look terrible on me!

Ordering was very easy. Their customer service department is fantastic. I got to know them very well, so I should know. Ya see, I accidentally ordered my eyeglasses in sunglasses.  See, you can order any pair of glasses in sunglasses as well. Prescription sunglasses are always great, aren’t’ they. Even before I was aware that I had made that mistake the customer service department was wonderful. I received multiple ordering and shipping updates.  After I discovered my mistake, when I contacted the customer service department they where more than willing to get me the correct pair, even though it was a mistake on my end.  They even let me keep the sunglasses!!

Funny story, when I first discovered the sunglasses mistake I made I thought “well, it would be nice to have a pair of prescription sunglasses”. Then my husband gave me a funny look when I showed him what I looked like in my new prescription sunglasses from I asked what’s wrong, or more like “what babe? what? why are you looking at me like that?” Ya know, that girly panic we go through!! He answers, “did you order the Jason Priestley’s?”





Wanna see my Jason Priestley’s??

IMAG3293b What do y’all think? Are they Priestley’s? They really aren’t so bad, right. AND there are a TON of people who LOVE Jason Priestley glasses. I know this from Google-ing a picture of Jason Priestley in sunglasses!

But remember, GlasssesUSA also sent me the corrected non sunglasses frames and lenses.


What do y’all think? I love them! They are light just like I wanted.  I also think they look a lot like they did on the Virtual Mirror. So I would say that special feature is pretty accurate.

Just Dance Disney for Xbox Kinect





Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. #UbiChamps

Santa stopped by a little early this year for Alice, with a copy of Just Dance Disney by Ubisoft for her to try.

Saying that she was pretty excited about it is a huge understatement. She was SO HAPPY! She is still so happy, and likes to play it everyday.

There are so many fun songs from so many fun Disney movies. Not only are the songs from movies but also from some of their popular TV shows. There is something for every age, even us adults!! Songs from shows and movies like Beauty and The Beast, The AristoCats, Tangled, Lilo & Stitch, Mary Poppins, Bolt, Jungle Book, The Muppets, A.N.T. Farm, Wizards of Waverly Place, Camp Rock, Phineas & Ferb and more!

The game is similar to Just Dance Kids 2 with live action dancers. Game modes: Team High Scores, Freeze & Shake and Balloon Pop. This game also includes a new game mode called duets. It also has the animated score icons. All the songs feature three dancers, and all the songs are the original versions, and not covers which is very nice!


Alice was especially excited about the songs from the Disney movie Tangled! If you remember or saw then y’all should know it’s her FAVORITE!!



Game-play is just like that in the other Just Dance games by UbiSoft. Players are required to perform specific dance moves in time with the music, following a routine indicated on-screen and performed by live dancers.

I really love that the game part is not so strict in giving points for movements. It is nice because we know our kids are not going to get each move or turn out each move correctly or on time. The fact that it is slightly open in what qualifies as a correct move give the kids more points and in turn makes for happier kids and happier playing time!

Here is Alice and her daddy playing Just Dance Disney!

Alice just LOVES this game. The songs, characters and game-play are all fun, colorful and engaging.

Click this link here to purchase a copy of Just Dance Disney for your kiddos! It really makes for a perfect gift from Santa! ;)

Do you own any Just Dance games? Which ones are your favorite? Is Just Dance Disney on your kiddos Santa list?

I LOVE The Scent of Fall!!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Glade Fall Collection for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I LOVE the wonderful scents of Fall?  Don’t you?  I love the smell of pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, the scents of baking and of stuffing with sage.  Those scents are synonymous with family, get togethers and Thanksgiving.  You just can’t have one without the other.  They blend together perfectly and instantly brighten up my mood.  

At the first hint of fall, usually when the stores start to fill their shelves with fall decor and fall scented candles, I start to stock up.  I love pumpkin, spiced or other baking scented candles leading up to Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving I like to burn candles that don’t smell like food but smell like fall and complement the scents of all the baking I’ve been working on all night and early in to the day.  I have found that perfect candle!!

I was given the opportunity to try Autumn Harvest, it’s one of the candles from the new Glade Fall Collection .  It’s described as wholesome fragrance inspired by Mother Nature with a smooth woody and earthy base that will allow you to savor the smoky scent of a chilly Fall day.  That is the perfect description.  I lit the candle the moment I opened the box.  I live in Houston, it’s still very hot and sticky here.  Within just 20 minutes my whole living room and surrounding areas were filled with a comforting scent of Fall.  It was so wonderful, it actually convinced my mind their was a chill in the air.  It inspired me to begin decorating for Fall.  I love the light brown transparent color of the candle holder.  Each candle holder and oil candle holder comes in a color coordinating transparent glass holder.  I love the fun, unique patterns that Glade® normally uses, but there is just something so nice about the simplicity of the transparent colors they used from the New Fall Collection.  I have to say, sure makes matching decor easy! 

The new Fall Collection from Glade® also includes Apple Cinnamon, Blackberry Jam, Maple Pumpkin, Rosemary Sage and my new favorite Autumn Harvest.  You have to try them.  Right now, there is a $1.50 off coupon at Walmart when you buy two products from the Fall Collection. 

Have you tried any of the wonderful new Fall scents from Glade®?   What is your favorite fall scent?
