Get rid on unwanted phone calls for good

Ah, here is a great resource for anyone out there who has ever looked at the caller id with confusion. Wouldn't you like to know who is calling before picking up the phone? I know I sure would. I stay pretty busy during the day so I don't always have time to talk with telemarketers. Well, here is a great tool to have.....Reverse Phone Lookups. Reverse Phone Lookup is a free service offered by Find Out Who's When you see a unknown number pop up on your caller id all you have to do is type in the number and VOILA you see who is calling at all times. You can also join the National No Call list via Find Out Who's and YES, it is free also!

awesome headbands

When I was younger there was not a huge selection of headbands to choose from. You either wore the plain COLORED plastic ones or you were just out of luck. Now you can find a large variety to choose from. Just check out these below:
As you can see from my features today, there is definately a bigger selection on the market to choose from these days!

If so here is a great site for police gear....LA Police They sell all sorts of gear such as holsters, hancuffs, patrol gear and even BDU Pants. So be sure to pass along the site to anyone in law enforcement and even the military.

Gymboree's newest line


I am not really digging this new line. Is it just me or do the lines seem to be repeats of older lines? (Colors are nearly the same every few months now) Don't get me wrong though, I still HEART my gymboree but I just wish they would come up with something a little different.

Hey, it's a good thing for all of you accessory moms though....Just save last year's accessories because they are bound to match an upcoming line or two!

What are your thoughts on Lady Daisy?

Great Mineral Makeup line

Hey ladies, did you know that a lot of the cosmetics on the market today are made with ingredients that are potentially harmful to you? We shouldn't be harming ourselves just to look beautiful, right? Well, there is a great makeup line out there called Ecco Bella that is all natural and never tested on animals. They offer a great line of Mineral Makeup , skin care, bodycare and even fragrances. My favorite product that they carry would have to be their "Health by chocolate" line. Chocolate and beauty should always go together in my opinion! So toss out all those harmful makeup products and head over to their website to see what great products they have to offer.

Splish Splash

A great way to unwind after a long day at the office *or dealing with the kiddos* is to jump in the nearest bathtub with some candles and a nice smelling bubble bath. HEAVEN!

What are some of your favorite scents? They say that Lavendar is "calming" scent. Here is a fantastic recipe for Lavendar bath salts. Feel free to share with a friend too!

epsom salts or sea salt, or both, and baking soda
essential oils - lavendar
food coloring
1 or 2 teaspoons of glycerin per jar - optional, but glycerin is an effective skin moisturizer and a nice addition
For the Decorative Glass Jars -
four glass jars
printable jar labels

General Instructions:
1. Collect your jars, remove labels, then wash and dry thoroughly.
2. For most bath salts recipes you can use your choice of epsom salts or sea salt, with baking soda, if desired, or a combination of all three. One good mix is one cup of epsom salts, with 1/4 cup of sea salt, and two or three tablespoons of baking soda. A little more or less of each ingredient is fine for most bath salts. Epsom salts and sea salt are soothing for tired muscles, while both will gently soften the water for a luxurious bath experience. You could also add a tablespoon or two of finely ground regular oatmeal (not quick cooking) for silky, skin-softening water.
3. Fill each jar to the top with the combination of bath salts that you plan to use. Empty the salts into a mixing jar and add a drop or two of glycerin, if using.

Add your choice of essential oil - how many drops you use is a personal preference, but start with two or three drops and see if you like the fragrance. The same goes for the liquid food coloring; sometimes I use quite a few drops of food color to get the strong hue that I like, but so far it hasn't stained the bath tub or anyone's skin. Remember that the color and fragrance will be much diluted in the bath water. Stir the salts vigorously until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

~Product branding~

If you are ready to get your product out on the market then you really should think about obtaining a great brand label. Label World USA can help your customers identify your product through customized labels. So whether you are in the food and beverage industry needing a Wine Label or the cosmetic industry needing labels for your new line of lipsticks ...Label World USA can help you create a top knotch label for your product. Allow your customers to recognize your product by a new unique label!

I was watching a great craft show the other day and they were making rings using old jewelry such as clip on earrings and stuff. I thought it was pretty interesting to say the least and started digging through my own jewelry box for ideas.
Of course, you can always just let someone else make one for ya!
Here are some great rings I found while searching ETSY today......

Alright all you cool cats, Social Spark is now open and ready for YOU! Have you signed up yet?? If not, then what are you waiting for? Don't you like making extra money? Instead of sitting there watching reruns on the television why not join the latest and coolest way to make money. I must say that SocialSpark is a cool place to hang out. I just love the new setup! For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about....Social Spark is a new advertising marketplace where YOU (the blogger) write and review various websites/companies and products and guess what YOU GET PAID FOR IT. You also get to interact with the advertisers through the community boards. There are some great new features in Social Spark like "blog sponsorships" and "Sparks". With blog sponsorships, you decide how long you would like your blog to be sponsored by a certain advertiser. Once the sponsorship is over then the ad goes away too. Sparks are pretty much IDEAS for blog posts. Sometimes you will even get a link back to your blog. I love Sparks because sometimes my brain doesn't want to function properly and I can not come up with anything good to blog about. These give me things to write about.....Without them you would probably be yawning at a lot of my posts!So, head over and give Social Spark a try! I promise that you will LOVE IT. It has become quiet the hang-out for me not to mention the CASH feels nice in my pocket.
