Things You May Find in Your Parents Garage...

Thanksgiving weekend. If you were at your parents house, you may have seen old friends, revisited old stories, and then searched around for all your old things. It's been 20 years since I graduated, my things have long since been moved to the garage... So I braved the depths in search of year books and memorabilia. And what I found was quite hilarious and oddly horrifying....

Moral of the story? Your tape collection from Jr. High and Vintage toys are both, equally, scary as hell. Especially cross-dressing headless Ken dolls and Milli Vanilli. 


{Almost} #WordlessWednesday: And We Will Call Her "Mommy Guilt"

The other day I threw a general question out on Facebook: "Do you ever do anything just out of Mommy Guilt?"

The answers, all 30 of them, ranged from "Daily" to "Is this a trick question?"

So moms, we are feeling a bit guilty, huh? Guilty enough to get your kids a dog? Sigh.

I didn't think I was "ready" for another pup quite yet, but apparently I have a major soft spot for begging children and little dogs with big floppy ears that were left in a box on the side of the freeway. 


I'll Try That Week! {take 2} It Works Ultimate Body Wrap

{So, my well planned out "I'll try that week!" that I started a few weeks ago was derailed by our family dog dying, then spring break, then sick kid and life exploding. I'm getting back... slowly}

We all know there are no miracle cures when it comes to losing weight and getting the body that you "pintasize" about {You know, your Pinterest fantasy body board?} but there are things that can help. Its been roughly 90-days since I've gone "meat free," I've been working myself out and I've been trying and trying to shed some lbs. So when my friend Nicole from Jr. High contacted me about these new body wraps that "help you firm up and lose inches," by It Works, I had to try them out. 

So, I invited Christine and Nicole over one afternoon and we put these wraps to the test. 

Expect "ultimate" results with this amazing 45-minute body Applicator! The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that has been infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results where applied to the skin.

  • Tightens, tones, & firms
  • Minimizes cellulite appearance
  • Improves skin texture & tightness
  • Mess-free and simple to use
  • Results in as little as 45 minutes
  • Progressive results over 72 hours
  • Made with natural ingredients

That sounds pretty good, huh? 

So (Jr. High) Nicole came over, and although I hadn't seen her about 24 years, I lifted my shirt and let her wrap my belly fat. Yes... it was one of "those moments.."

While I am INCREDIBLY too vain (and slightly horrified) to show you the pictures of me being wrapped, lets just she gave us each one for free and we promptly bought more. This product really worked. in 45 minutes I lost 3/4 ths of an inch, in 24 hours it was almost 2 inches, and 72 hours after doing the 2nd wrap, my waist was over 4 inches smaller. But even nicer was the way my (ruined from pregnancy) stomach skin was... it was tighter and just looked better. 

Now, this is not a water-weight thing as with other "wraps" - this product removes the toxins in the skin, in turn tightening the skin which is why you lose the inches. Results don't go away in 24 hours either, and in most cases results can last 2 months* You can use it on your belly, chin, thighs, butt or even on your boobs for a little "lift."

I have to say I was impressed by the results. While I didn't turn into a super-model overnight, I saw a change in the apperance in the skin on my belly. This would be a great thing to do before an event or before a bathing suit occasion.

The only bad thing about them was that I could not wrap my body in them like a mummy and take care of everything at once. 

If you are interested in trying them out - contact Nicole Walker and like a back ally crack dealer, she will hook you up. Wraps are $25 each, but if you want to buy more products or just keep them coming in a steady stream to your front door, you can sign-up to be a "Loyal Customer" and get HUGE discounts.

So go - order - and get ready for swimsuit season.
