Superior Source Vitamins GIVEAWAY!!

What Makes Superior Source UNIQUE: Superior Source Vitamins are MicroLingual - "Under the Tongue Technology" that works fast, as they are quickly absorbed into the body, dissolving in seconds - NO pills to swallow! By swallowing supplements, as much as 50% of the potency is lost in the high acid environment of the stomach. 

Just Women - Iron : Superior Source provides optimal levels of iron in our Instant Dissolve MicroLingual Tablets for efficient nutrient delivery. Ferrous fumarate helps restore iron levels in the body when levels are low. The ferrous fumarate salt may help reduce the chances of getting gastro-intestinal problems which are sometimes associated with other iron salts.

Vitamin D 1000 IU: Vitamin D works in conjunction with calcium to promote the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. Superior Source Vitamin D products are D3, the finest source of Vitamin D available.

Vitamin C Sour Cherry Melts: Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that cannot be produced by the body, therefore it must be replenished daily. Vitamin C also provides support to the body's immune system, very helpful in a season where people catch colds and flu. No sugar is added, these products are only sweetened by stevia; this is preferable to most 'chewable' vitamin C products that are typically loaded with lots of sugar.

Children's B Complex with Vitamin C: Children's B-Complex with folic acid, calcium pantothenate and biotin is formulated to provide the nutrients that support optimal health for the production and maintenance of new cells and supports nervous system health, energy metabolism, and healthy heart function.

Biotin 5000 mcg: Helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, promotes nail and hair strength and supports cell growth, metabolism of fats, amino acids and the production of fatty acids. Sugar FREE!

This product was sent to me through BrandBacker to submit a review, I received no compensation other than the product and below is my honest review.

Summer time is the most crucial time I believe for your skin and how you treat it. 
First of all we are dealing with the sun a known source for Vitamin D which is beneficial
but too much of it can lead to damaging effects often difficult to reverse.

Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun's ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily -- taking longer to heal. So while sun damage to the skin may not be apparent when you're young, it will definitely show later in life.

Knowing this I was more than happy to try the VALENTIA Vitamin C Skin Glow Serum with a 20% more concentration to boost the body's immune system and provides many benefits to keep skin tight, smooth and looking healthy.

I started to use this serum about 3 weeks now and I already notice incredible results, I have tried Vitamin C serums in the past and they were good but this one blows them away, I use this immediately after washing my face in the morning and pairing it with my favorite moisturizer before I apply makeup and it made my face soft, firm and ready for my makeup. I noticed a healthy, dewy glow from continuous use. 

First thing you notice about the serum itself is how concentrated it is so you really only need a tiny dollop. I also love the scent which smells of a juicy sweet orange. The serum is 98% all natural chosen specifically to enhance the Vitamin C efficacy on the skin. I found that this absorbed quickly into my skin and gave it a moist and dewy glow and as the use increased my skin is tighter and clearer as well.

Other ingredients include:

Organic Rosehip and Seed Oil & Buckthorn oil-These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C

RESISTEM (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.

HYALURONIC ACID(Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion

GREEN TEA EXTRACT- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.

                                                            First Week of Use
                                                           3rd Week of use
                                                           Acne scars clearing and smoother appearance
                                                           Fresh and glowing when makeup is applied

Review: LegoLand Discovery Center of Westchester

I was recently given the opportunity to visit the LegoLand Discovery Center of Westchester with my family and give my honest review.

Located in the heart of Yonkers NY, In the most wonderful Ridge Hill Mall.
LegoLand is open to LEGO lovers of all ages and levels of building. This center has 15 different attractions which we were very excited to see!!

You are first greeted by the wonderful and friendly guides who will take your picture and give you a small tour on what's to come (as you can see in the photo below I was pretty excited).

 Here is where the tour begins as you are guided through the making of LEGO bricks and how many are processed in the factories.
My Daughter got to see her height in Lego blocks almost 160,000!!
After the tour we were onto MINI LAND!!
Mini Land was by far my favorite attraction takes over a million legos to build these wonderful landmarks pictured here are just some of the awesome displays you will see animate right before your eyes.

Football Stadium

GW Bridge
Times Square and NY Skyline
videoRock out!
LegoLand also features 4D movies every 15 minutes!
We also got to ride the Kingdom Quest  interactive Laser game!! video
With so much to do in one place it is hard to include it all but other things we got to experience:
Merlin's Apprentice Ride
Lego Construction Site and Model Builder Academy
Earthquake Tables
Duplo Village 
So what was the verdict from my family? I think the picture speaks for itself!!
 We also got to dine in the amazing Elevation Burger located above LegoLand Discovery Center

Review:Schwan's Home Delivery and Coupon Code on your first Delivery!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
I was asked to review this service and give my honest opinion. I was given a free code to try Schwan's Home Delivery of quality food and desserts.
I perused over the site which has so many mouth watering options it is so hard to choose which way to go!!
You get a wide variety of choices of meats,fruits, breakfasts, vegetables, side dishes, seafood, desserts and even some gluten-free pizza for those of you who meet that specific dietary requirement and yes there are organic options as well.
All items are decently priced and even in some cases cheaper if you consider what you would need to make a gourmet meal for 4 and what it would cost you to breakdown those ingredients it can get very pricey!
Schwan's has some wonderful dinner options if you prefer not to cook but plan ahead!! placing an order with Schwan's you will need to be able to do it at least a week in advance from when you would need your items (Estimated delivery service is located BEFORE you order so you know when to expect it)
I was given a $25 code so here is what I purchased and what i thought:

Italian Style Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast $14.99 (You get 4 individually wrapped chicken stuffed with romano, parmesan ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, and  sun dried tomato these were absolutely delicious and took no time to make (about 35-40min)
Roasted Baby Bakers $6.74 (You get a family size bag of frozen spuds when placed in the oven with some olive oil come out savory and delicious. We really enjoyed these.
Special Recipe Supreme Pizza $4.99 Always a staple in my house (made by me usually) but this was a nice change of pace although the crust is a bit thin for my liking it was really good!!

All in all I really did enjoy this service and the only con is probably the time it takes to have it delivered to your home, but it may vary on location otherwise I give Schwan's

Review:HSI Professional Argan Oil Leave -In Hair Treatment

I have been sent this product to review through Tomoson to give my open and honest opinion.

This review is on the HSI Leave in Hair Treatment with Argan Oil
My hair is like a thirsty towel so it always needs some type of moisture in it or else it becomes a frizzy, clumpy mess so I am always up to try any type of oil or serum to quench it's need. I have tried HSI prior to this review but only in small doses but i do have to say even in that tiny sample packet I loved what I used.

So when Tomoson had this up to review I was stoked.
My hair is thick, wavy and also color-treated so this was the perfect product for me.
I took a quarter size amount into the palms of my hands and rubbed together, then I applied it all over starting from mid-shaft to the ends and even to my scalp. 

What is wonderful about this oil is you do not need a large amount ( i used a little more due to the thickness of my hair) and the smell of this product is awesome it also lingers after you have styled your hair (added bonus!!)

After blow-drying and then styling with my flat iron my hair was soft, sleek and very shiny!
I applied a little bit afterwards to lock in the shine and I was good to go!

This product retails for $32.99 on their website HERE but you can get 30% off with the code LOYAL. 


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
