NeoCell Glow Matrix Advanced Skin Hydrator



A supplement which hydrates your skin from the inside out. It claims to make your skin look smoother with prolonged regular use. Sounds amazing, right? I decided to take on this challenge and use the product for a month to see how it would treat my facial skin. The pills themselves are really easy for me to swallow and I am not fond of large pills. Just some quick facts about the product is that it's Gluten-Free, lactose free, starch free, yeast free, GMO free and artificial flavor free.




Here are my progress shots after taking the pills daily for a month straight. The photos were taken in natural light in front of a window. I'm also not wearing any foundation on my skin. I have to say that I have been impressed with the product's ability to make my skin appear smoother/cleaner. I hate wearing any type of foundation so this works out great for my preferences. I also want to say that I have had problems with breaking out here and there in the mornings. I have noticed fewer breakouts over longer periods of time while taking this supplement. If you're like me and hate wearing foundation with your makeup then a skin hydrator supplement like NeoCell's Glow Matrix might work best for you.



Here's the supplement facts label so you can see exactly what's in it for yourself. I think the key in this formula has to be the ceramides, pine bark and hyaluronic acid blend.

I'll definitely continue to take this product as I feel it's been helping my skin feel and look smoother. There's nothing better than having a natural healthy glow to your skin. That's the hydration going to work indeed. :}

Lots of places sell this supplement but my favorite place to shop is Amazon because Prime is helpful.

Here's the link to buy : https://www.amazon.com/NeoCell-Glow-Matrix-Advanced-Hydrator/dp/B0127X3FIG

It's only $19 right now for 90 capsules.

Easy Creamy Shrimp Scampi with my 12" Ozeri Green Earth Pan



I totally love Ozeri products so much so here I am trying out their new packaging on their 12" pan. I already own a few of their older ones and they have lasted me many years. They cook very well and clean up quite easily. I see a difference now is they include this pot protector for when you aren't using it. If you're like me you are stacking all of your pans on top of another in a deep cabinet so this makes for a nice little cushion.


So I wanted to make a quick dinner. I decided to stick some garlic rice in my rice cooker which was simple enough. I purchased a bag of precooked frozen shrimp from my local Target along with a bag of Shrimp scampi sauce from Campbell's.




All I did was add about 4 ounces of cream cheese to the sauce to thicken it. I also added a little bit of fresh Parmesan, flour and fresh cracked pepper.

It's such a quick meal and my whole family loved it. I was lazy and left the tails which were annoying to pull off but make sure to pull off the tails to make it easier to eat.

The Ozeri Green Earth Pan heats up relatively quickly and nothing sticks to it. The pan was really easy to clean and put away. I'm very happy with it and how it cooks everything.


  •  Unlike other ceramic cookware brands, the Ozeri pan utilizes GREBLON ceramic - an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100% PTFE, PFOA and APEO free (no heavy metals or chemicals).
  • Innovative honeycomb textured cooking surface delivers enhanced heat distribution and unprecedented non-stick performance without releasing harmful fumes or toxins at high temperatures.
  • Utilizes a new scratch-resistant dual ceramic coating that is super easy to clean with superior abrasion resistance.
  • Made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals.
  • Boasts a comfortable heat-resistant silicon coated handle, and a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer.

When you need throwaway craft paint brushes for hobbies



US Art Supply 20pc Assorted Paint and Chip Brushes

Are you like me and hate cleaning up after stained brushes? It's a nightmare cleaning that stuff off. I was thinking I could use the smallest ones for brushing my Quick Shade onto my miniature figurines. Some people like to dip their figurines in the Quick Shade but I prefer brushing it onto the spots I need it. I try to be careful so they don't get all goopy. Anyway, I find that these work perfectly for that purpose. The bigger ones are also nice for wood staining projects or even just regular painting. This whole set was about $10 which makes them really good for those one use projects. The handles are comfortable to hold as well. I can truly recommend giving these a look for your future projects/hobbies. #usartsupply

You can buy them here on Walmart.com: http://www.walmart.com/ip/155574812

US Art Supply 36 Pack of 1/2 inch Paint Brush

If you're interested in just the smaller brushes then you should go with the 36 pack. These are my favorite for the smaller projects like the miniatures and Quick Shade. Once again I found this set very hardy and surprisingly good quality.

US Art Supply 12 Pack of 3 inch Paint

These are great for painting projects. I personally have used these larger brushes to redo furniture pieces. I didn't have any problems with the bristles shedding from them which is good. You can even wash and reuse these which I have already done. You can also throw them away after a use without feeling guilty about it since it's so affordable.   These are good for staining larger furniture pieces as well. I love all the ways I can use them!

What we thought about Baby Mum-Mum Rusks


It's been so long and I wanted to have a little taste test with my own kids so I present to you, Baby Mum-Mum! I used to get these for my kids when they were babies and they loved eating them. They come in a few different flavors so here are three of them which are Apple & Pumpkin, Vegetable with Spinach, cabbage & Carrot and Original Rice. They also gave me a reusable water bottle bag. These are pretty cool to travel with so thanks!


I think I am more wary now of nutritional facts than I ever was in my life. I'm more than impressed by what I see. The ingredients are so simple and easy to understand. Anyway, I had my 12 year old daughter try them and she said she loved the apple & pumpkin variety. She has been bugging me for more as an after school snack every now and then. I think children and adults can enjoy these little biscuits. What's better is that they are individually packaged so they are great on the go.



My thoughts? Get these for your babies or toddlers over cookies like Oreos & Chip's Ahoy. Your kids can enjoy those sugar ridden things later on in life. Give them the best you can while you can. Baby Mum-Mum has always been a huge success in my life and my kids life.

Thanks Green MomsMeet and Hot-Kid for allowing my family, friends and group to try this awesome product out. The neighbors have been more than thrilled to give this snack to their little ones.
