Build a Rock-Solid Immune System with FitTea #FitTeaDetox

Last Friday was the weigh in for the "Biggest Loser" program at my husband's  work.  The company have started this  program for all the employees to encourage all of them to stay fit.  My husband did not participate last year because  he was new but this year, he signed up for it.  The company  has been divided into teams.  The team who loses most weight will each win $500 in cash and  one will have an addition $100 for  over all biggest loser.

Anyway, he bought some colon cleanse low carb diet to help him  with his goal and I got him this  Decaf FitTea.  I have read and   See what other people think about FitTea and their results and it's very inspiring.  My husband's goal is to lose  30 pounds over the course of  6 months.  He was 197 lbs during the weigh in and he is now 190 lbs which isn't bad.  He lost 7 lbs already  by exercising and using the  colon cleanse  diet.

I like it that FitTea has  All natural ingredients in it which I think the reason why  The pro pack will naturally double your results and your energy so this  is perfect for my husband in achieving his goal.  FitTea will boost your metabolism, aids in digestive health and boosts fat-loss naturally in problem areas. Since one of my husband's main goal is to detox his body, FitTea is absolutely perfect for him since it is  an all-natural detox tea. He can build a rock-solid immune system with FitTea!  Aside from the  tings I've mentioned, it will also help him  super charge and boost his overall immune system and gives him more energy, which is very important at his line of work.
Here are the natural  ingredients of FitTea: 
  • Organic Green Tea, 
  • Oolong Wu Yi, 
  • Organic Rooibos, 
  • Ginger, 
  • Pomegranate, 
  • Guarana, 
  • Birch, 
  • Stevia, 
  • Corn and 
  • Honey Powder. 
Aside from fast-working and natural detox that these ingredients provides, it also  have other benefits such as  weight loss, increased energy levels, suppressing the appetite, and natural antioxidants.  You can Buy FitTea online if you want to detoxify your body with natural ingredient products like Fit Tea.


I challenged my husband  so he challenged me back.  I  am not trying to lose weight but I am trying to tone down so that is my goal, side by side to his goal.  I told him that if he  managed to pull a 165 lbs weight, I will be giving him 500 bucks every six months and he said "Game on".  So now I am in trouble  hahaha.  We both drank a glass of FitTea and liked it.  It's like a mixture of  flowers, it smells good and it tasted good.

So tune in,  "Give us a few weeks and we'll give you a new waistline".

We participated in a sponsored post for #FitTea. However, all opinions are our own.

A Walk in the Clouds #Nature'sSleep

Have you ever watched the movie "A Walk in the Clouds" by   Keanu Reeves and Aitana Sánchez-Gijón?  The story of the movie is about a  World War 2 Veteran who came home to  settle down with his  wife whom he married before  enlisting.  When he came home, he found out that his wife is not the woman that he thought she was so he left and went to California to find a job.  Along the way, he met a  beautiful woman who is returning home  to help her family's vineyard harvest.  He also learned that she is pregnant without a husband so he offered to be her husband so her father  would not disown her.  With his stay there, they fall in love but faced the  disapproval of her father.  It is a beautiful and inspiring  movie to watch.  Hubby and I love watching it over and over again.
Anyway the reason I remember this movie is because of the  pair of slippers I recently receive from Nature's Sleep to review.  When you wear the slippers and take a walk around your house, you will feel like walking in the clouds because this Open Toe Memory Foam Slippers has visco-elastic memory foam in the bottom of the sole contours and cradles your foot for luxurious comfort and support with each and every step.  Your feet  will keep warm  when you have this  slippers on. I always wear slippers around the house because I don't like the feel of the carpet in my bare feet.  
I choose this Ivory color  but this is  available in lavender, mocha, and pale blue.  You can buy this at www.naturessleep.com for $25.  It is available in sizes S, M, L, and XL.  This slippers is made from high quality genuine Nature’s Sleep next generation memory foam.  As you can see in the photo above and below, the inner sole is 75% cotton/25% polyester; while the  outer sole has  thermoplastic rubber, the  lining is 100% polyester. This is  designed here in the United States and was made in China.
 The main feature of this  slippers is to provide your feet the pressure relieving comfort all day long.  It naturally conforms to your foot in cool comfort which is a great plus for me because I do a lot of stuff around the house all day and it's  so comforting to have these  in my feet while doing my chores.  Another cool feature of this slippers is that, it distributes weight to reduce pressure points and improve circulation.  This is ideal for indoor use on multiple surfaces.
Right now, Nature Sleep is sponsoring a contest called "The Art of Sleep". You can find the full details by visiting this url naturessleep.com/artofsleep.  So check them out and get crafty for a chance to win $500 for your art or  win one of their  memory foam mattresses.

Modern Vintage Designer Jewelry from StickyJ

I  like  wearing jewelry that are simple  but very meaningful especially when it is personalized.   I got the luxury to receive a beautiful  and elegant piece of  personalized jewelry from  Sticky Jewelry.   I chose this 24k gold plated coin and cotton pearl with an Initial “R” necklace by John Wind for my daughter.  Her birthday is coming up and this would make a very special gift for her.  
What I like about their jewelry is the unique story  behind every piece.  The metals are enhanced and then antiqued.
Just like this  Cotton ball pearl pendant, it is made from  a genuine cotton, it is lacquered and then pearlized, it is so unique!
Sticky Jewelry or StickyJ  was founded in 2000 with their  engravable photo pin as their very first product.  From then on, they expanded their inventory that includes engraved lockets, dog tag pendants, ID bracelets, keychain, fashionable medical alert jewelry, and a lot more.  Their company's  specialty is custom engraving.
Sticky Jewelry also offers APO and  FPO shipping for military  personnel who are  stationed overseas.  I wish I could have kbow about them when we were still in Korea.  It was hard finding  a personalized gift for my  husband back then since we were strangers out there.  
There are so many  special gifts that you can customized from Sticky Jewelry.  The prices are  very reasonable  and affordable.  This necklace only cost $43.95 which isn't  bad considering  that  it is customized.
Thank you so much StickyJ!

BeautyBox5, March Edition

I tried BeautyBox5 last February and liked what I got in the box so I decided to become their regular  BBF subscriber.  This is what's inside for the March edition.   Their goal for  this month is to get out with the old and in with the new ones.  This is the perfect opportunity for subscribers to  throw out the make up that is never used and focus on the goal of having clean and gorgeous skin.
First  that  I like  from  Beauty Box 5 this month us this Tree Hut's Shea Body Butter.  I love products  from Tree Hut and this is no difference.  You can treat your body  to the best with this one.  This lotion deep conditions the skin with cocoa and organic shea butter.  IT provides  natural anti-aging properties, and puts us in the mood to party  with lime and coconut extract.    I just love the smell and the feeling of your skin after using this  one.
You all know that I don't really use make up but I love that I have this make up base now.  This could help  hide the imperfection of my skin in my face.  This Belapierre Cosmetics Makeup Base has an ivory tone which blends naturally to my skin.  This serves as a concealer, illuminator, and eye shadow primer.
So here's my experiment.  The before and after photos.  I really liked that it hid the dark spots in my cheeks.  What I don't like is the after effect, after few hours, my  face feels very oily and  it looks shiny.
The H20 Plus Hands and Nail Cream is proven to soften even the roughest hands.  I's lightweight, non greasy, and restores your skin with silk protein, Vitamin E, and marine Botanical.  This is a must have especially  during Winter when your hands tend to crack due to harsh weather.
 My hands always experience extreme dryness over the winter  so this is a perfect solution for it.  The first photo shows how dry it is and the two photos below show how smooth it looks after applying the H20 Plus Hand and Nail Cream.
Jane's Pick All Natural Soaps is made from an all natural blend infused  with herbs and flowers.  These are handmade so each bar has a unique pattern and relaxing scent.  If you shave your legs, you can use this one instead of a shaving cream. I haven't use this one so I don't know it's effect yet.  
The last one is the Swissco Dual-Sided Facial pad.  This is great for exfoliating your skin a few times a week.  I actually use this everyday since I got it.  I love that after cleaning  my face, there is no dry  skin which I always have problems with before as I only use my hands  to clean my face before having this one.
If you are into  beauty products, I highly recommend BeautyBox5 subscription.  You get  five different  items every month for a very minimal  subscription fee.  Check them out!

Tuxedo Legging and Braid TankTop from Onzie

I am so fortunate to have generous sponsors like  Onzie who provides high quality  fitness gears.  It helps you motivate to stay fit  and continue doing your  workout.  I honestly slowed down in working out, I still do some  stretching and stuff but haven't been in my treadmill for a while.  I just want to  do my run outdoors but to our freezing weather, it's a bit frustrating.  Today, I might go for a run because our weather is a bit warmer. 
I received this tuxedo leggings in size s/m, it's also available in size  M/L.  You can buy it for $63 at their website.  I like the  style and  design because 'it  features a higher waist and runs along the ankle.  I am a shortie so it is a bit long for my height but it is an easy fix as I can just roll it under and it suits my height already.  This allows you to have a maximum mobility with its full flex fabric. The Tuxedo Legging features a higher waist and runs long to the ankle. The mesh racer stripes down the sides create an athletic and fun look, which is  perfect for the gal on the go! 
  • 100% Free Flow Fabric
  • 80% nylon / 20% spandex
  • Side panel is mesh
  • Hand or machine wash cold
  • Tumble or hang dry
  • Made in USA
The  braid tank top is super  stylish.  It has a black lining inside that serve as undergarment but  since this is made nylon and spandex material, you can still see the trace of your nipples.  You can always  insert a padding  though so it is not an issue.  This cost  $58.00 and available in S/M and  M/L sizes.  I chose the  turquoise color but  this is also available in purple and black.  Below is the full description.

This tank top is made from the same material as their bra tops and is perfect for customers who prefer to cover their tummy. It includes a built in shelf bra to provide support. The braid tank top is a longer style tank and stops at your hip level. This was designed to complement our low-rise capris and long leggings. Outlines the shoulder and backside. 
  • 100% Free Flow Fabric
  • 80% nylon / 20% spandex
  • Hand or machine wash cold
  • Tumble or hang dry
  • Made in USA
The prices seems a bit pricey a but it's worth the quality of their products.  They are well made from high quality materials that will last a long time.  You just have to remember to wear  black underwear when you wear the leggings outside because it shows on the side.  I did not mind since I was inside our home but I will definitely remember that lol.
Here's my  partner in crime and photographer doing his fitness routine.  Thanks for taking the photos anak! Thank you so much once again Onzie for giving me inspiration to  continue working out!

My Niece's Dilemma

I talked to my eldest niece  the other day  on Facebook and catch up with her  studies and stuff.  She is sad that  her Dad is not around anymore to witness her graduation.  She is  graduating in high school this year and I feel sad for this  young lady.  My brother passed away at an early  age a few years  back.  He died due to a motorcycle accident.  He  drove while he was under the influence of alcohol which eventually cost his life.  It is sad that he will never see his three girls grow up.  This is why I always remind myself to enjoy each day with my kids and husband.  You never know what will happen to you.  You can die anytime even unexpectedly.  

My brother was  never an alcoholic but because it was the day of fiesta on our relative's place, he drunk with them.  Fearing that  his wife would get mad if he doesn't come home  on that day, he made a wrong  decision to drive under the influence. There are so many questions that still lingers in my mind until now due to my brother's death. Was it something that  God have planned or it was just a  bad decision that my brother did?   Who knows.  I just hope that  my nieces would be able to go on with their lives normally.  Right now, they are  facing a big adjustment as their Mom found a new partner.  They seem to have a hard time  accepting  it.  I don't blame them, I would feel the same if I were in their shoes because it is hard enough to go  with  their everyday lives without their Dad and now they have a new big adjustment again.  On the other hand, I don't blame their Mom to look for someone who could assist her in raising my nieces.

On the other note, it is very important that if you know someone who is in the verge of addiction, to  learn the following factors:

 Types of addiction conditions.
· Signs and Sources of addiction.
· Dangers and Risks from addiction.
· Drug addiction treatment centers

Advanced Health and Education     is one of the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation or  addiction treatment center in New Jersey that helps individual  treat their addiction  problem.  I do believe that having the    New Jersey addiction treatment centers helps individuals  get all the help that they need to get rid of their addiction.  It is a long process that needs the  professional help.    You can find &nbsp NJ prescription drug abuse treatment by visiting the link I have provided in this article.  Aside from drug treatment centers, there are also New Jersey alcohol treatment centers available.

Kate Lipstick by Rimmel London

I don't buy lipstick or make up ever. Friends will give me some but it end up going expired since I don't use it regularly. I only bought this Kate lipstick by Rimmel London because I had to review a red dress and thought that I should wear a lipstick hehehe. This cost under $5 so it wasn't bad.
So here it is.  I don't feel comfortable  wearing red lipstick.  For some reason, it doesn't look right when I look at the photo lol.  Oh well, once in a while, it's nice to  play with cosmetics I guess.
My husband and kids are not  used to see me wearing lipstick so when they see me with lipstick on, they would often say "It doesn't look like you" lol.

I love wearing perfume but never  into make up and lipstick.  I admire  those who look good wearing make up on

Home Improvement Projects

When we first bought our home, the basement had the old  style of  tiles.  The inspector of the house told us that it might contain something harmful so hubby and I decided to renovate our basement and  replaced the old rotten tiles.  We used laminate flooring on the half part of the basement while the other half, we used   tiles.  Below is the photo I took of my husband and kids when hubby got done  laying out the  laminate wood flooring.  It took him a while to finish it as it was his first time doing such project.  He watched the  "how-to" video online in order to   do the project right.  We did not have the  budget to hire a professional so we   tried our best to just  do it ourselves.

DIY home improvement projects saves a lot of money but there are also cons for doing it.  First is that, it takes a while for a project to finish.  Then you will bump into problems  when doing it  especially if you don't have an expertise in doing that kind of project.   So you see, we managed to laid out the flooring but the edges of it isn't done until now.  We still have to purchase the  stuff we need in order to  finish this.  If only we have the resources, we could hire the professionals at Flooring America because they are the leading company when it comes to  home improvement  project like this.  

OOTD #Outfit-Of-The-Day #2

I went for a  walk in our neighborhood  after I walked down  my kids to school.  My husband has to go to work early today because all of us have a dental appointment  later this afternoon so he has to come home early.  The wind is blowing so hard which made my walk not really enjoyable.  I walked until I feel like my fingers are  coming off my hands lol.  Anyway, sharing  here the selfie shots I took last week after my morning walk.
I am wearing:

  • Sunglasses that my husband gave me as par to the anniversary gifts few years ago when we were still in Korea. 
  • BCX Coat that my husband gave me for Valentine's last year. 
  • head wrap that I got from Cover Your Hair. 
  • Levis Jeans that I recently snagged for cheap.
  •  Winter Boots that daughter and hubby got me.

Okay I will give you this   last shot  for humor purposes.  I thought I was alone in the photo but when I viewed it, my dog , Champ is in the background taking a dump wahhh.  Oh well, he had to take care of his business and so he did, at my expense lol.

Real Estate Agent App

Ever since we got our new router, our iPad is picking up the WiFi connection at home.  Since then, my husband love browsing the   houses for sale at our area from his new favorite gadget, the iPad.   I wonder if the  real estate agents here in the are are aware of the  the real estate agent checklist app available for their phone?  I bet they do because most of them are pretty much up-to-date with the technology.

SunFrog Shirts Review

I was given a privilege to  received two  printed tees  from  SunFrog to review.  I chose the CrossFit print for my husband and I. My husband has been under the weather for few days now and it shows on his face, he was not feeling well when I took  these photos.  He feel bad that he's been missing going to the gym for almost two months now.  I am encouraging him to just work out with me at home  so he doesn't have to pay for the gym membership but he hasn't  agreed with me yet hehehe,
SunFrog has different kinds of designs depending on the theme that you want for a shirt.  Their categories includes automotive, camping, faith, fishing, fitness, geek and tech, hunting, lifestyle, movies, pets, political,  TV shows, video games, sports, and  special holidays such as St. Patrick.  
I like the material of my shirt and my husband that his shirt is  so comfortable as well.  We finally have a matching shirt for doing our fitness  routines.  Now that it's winter, I do  most of my  workouts  at our living room because it is called  at our basement where our mini gm is.  
If you want to get a customized shirt, check out SunFrog  as they have  a huge selection of design.  You can find them at their  social media network such as  Facebook,  Pinterest, and  Twitter.  Thank you so much Sunfrog!
