Purina Maxx Reivew

I had the opportunity to try out the Purina Maxx Cat Litter from Match Stick.
My Husband is the one who changes the litter most cases.
He does not like this personally but he does say it did the job that it should. Which is the litter clumps the urine into one area. So anyting that is moist from your cat will make the litter hard and easier to clean up.
Great if you have more than one cat in the house.
We find that when you are cleaning the cat litter from the dried up clay that it sticks to the scoop and it is very messy. You don't want to wash it off in the sink as the clumps of clay could clog your drain.
I do not think we would purchase this product.

Though we do buy already Purina Maxx® for homes with one cat. We like this one as it has no dusting than some other cat litters when filling the box.
Does not smell like cat litter. Which is a plus. When you have people coming in your home you do not want them smelling litter.
So i do recommend still using Purina but i like the one we purchase.

THANKS --- Cancer - Girls Night In

             Well my Girls Night In was not all what it should or could have been in.
I tried getting donations from different people through out the time by asking and putting up on Facebook and Twitter. But i look at it that any donation is better than none as it goes to a great cause. Though it looks like the only donation is going to be mine for my donation page anyways.
I wanted to do this but but should have know better as i had received donations for another cause around the same time for my sons school. Quite a few people gave to that and than trying to ask right after everyone just gave is a little hard.
All i ask is if you still want to donate to my donation page or to another.
                                          Here is the link                            
                                           Girls Night In 

You can help support research into women’s cancers (breast, cervical, ovarian and uterine) by making a donation to my event. It's easy - just click the "Donate" button on the right.

This is what i have it under

                                     Fight Cancer

                                 Ontario, Canada

I would like to say Thank you to Match Stick for the information on this.
                                             I was glad i was able to participate.
It does not matter how big or small of a donation you give, because it all counts.

IQ Cleaning Products Review

                                   I had the chance to try out IQ Cleaning products.
                                                          Check out site iqclean

The products that i received were
All Purpose Cleaner-Green Tea
Bathroom Cleaner-Nectarine Plum
Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner-Papaya Mango

A different way of cleaning for sure.
What i mean by that is what i received were three empty bottles and the cartridges for each bottle.
You fill the bottle with tap water up to the line on the bottle and than put the cartridge in.
Turn the nozzle on and than the cartridge releases the cleaner into the water and give it a good shake.
Your now already to get started on clening.
I found all the products nice and soft scented.
No overpowering smell.
Which was nice.
Cleaned very nice still with the freshness in the air and a nice clean home.
I cleaned the bathroom first with the Bathroom Cleaner and i usually spray and than let it sit for a few minutes.
Than i start wiping down with a damp cloth and it cleaned very nicely.
The refill idea is great also as it is less waste, better for the enviroment.
They are Non-Toxic and environmentally sustainable ingredients.
I say use a wet or damp cloth so no sticky residue is left on things.

Thanks to
for letting me try out the products.


Dove Movement Self-Esteem

Hi~ I just signed on to the Dove Movement for Self-Esteem vision, because every girl should grow up with the self-esteem she needs to reach her full potential, and every woman should feel confident her own beauty. Will you join me? There are so many actions we can take to inspire and mentor the girls in our lives, and each other, too -- like sending a word of encouragement or supporting self-esteem education in our towns. Our movement is building a world where every woman and girl reaches her full potential. Join us. Thanks!

I like the way Dove is for some of the advertising. It makes you look at yourself different.
You should find beauty in everyone. It does not matter who you are we all have something good.

Only i wish i could see that in myself.
I have always had low self-esteem. I think i got it from my Mom because she never felt good about herself.
She built me up my Husband has always built me up.

I have gotten better with my Husband giving me good comments because i can remember for the longest time i would just roll my eyes at him.
I needed to learn ot beleive what he was saying to me.
I have a hard time excepting who i am. I wish i was thinner like i used to be before kids.
I wish i did not have marks and bumps on my face.
I still have along way to go to feel good about who i am. I hope i will make it soon because i worry about my 2 boys of how they will be about themselves.
When you are a parent and your kids see you pick yourself apart they can learn from that and that is not a good thing. I build my kids up or at least i try.

Go join the   Dove Movement    today.

Vim Cream Review

I received a container of Vim Lemon Cleanser as part of the  Chick Advisor review club.
I have to say sometimes i enjoy cleaning. So i was in the cleaning mood for the bathroom to see how the Vim would work.
I used it for cleaning the bathroom for the sink, toilet and tub.
I let it sit abot 5 minutes. Started scrubbing as it was nice and smooth to scrub and not alot of scrubbing to do to get things looking clean.
It had a nice soft lemon scent.
You can use it on a few different areas for cleaning your outdoor items like your Barbecue and Plastic patio furniture. From indoor like your bathroom and kitchen and so much more.

BOOK REVIEW = A Summer Secret

A Summer Secret
The Mysteries of Middlefield Series

By Kathleen Fuller
I had the chance to read this book through
I have never done a book review before.
But anyways i have to say i enjoyed this book very much.
It is meant for preteens - young readers.
But even i as a parent and 30 something year old thought it was a great read.
The story is about a girl named Mary Beth a young Amish girl. who is from Ohio in the year 1885
She wants to have her time away alone from her brothers who seem to bother her and just everyday things.
As she has a hiding place which is an abandoned Barn, that she was told by her parents not to go to.
But to her it was a place to just get away.
But she thinks someone has been there other than herself her secret palce but was it so secret if someone else was there.
She becomes closer to her twin brother while trying to find out who has been at the barn.
They find out about someone who they befried and try to help.
But i can not giveaway the end because you might want to find out on your own.
You will have to get this book and find that young reader in yourself and enjoy.   

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
