Hipzbag Review - Fashionable Waist Pack

When I am on the go I do not always like to carry a purse; especially when I am visiting places or doing things that require me to use both hands.   I am notorious for wearing my stylish fanny pack, no really they are stylish.  I get many compliments.  Yes, there are some stylish ones out there, like Hipzbag.

Think of all the things you'll need two hands for this holiday – stuffing food in your face, juggling kids/parents/pets simultaneously, giving bear hugs to Santa. Well, now you can give the gift of a hassle-free life with Hipzbag.  I know many of you remember those days.

Hipzbag is the hands free and fashionable purse that keeps all of your essentials at your fingertips. With a built-in rear pocket that fits ANY cell phone, you'll never again have to worry about dropping your phone or missing a call while slaving over your Christmas Ham.

Why Hipzbag is the perfect gift for the holidays:

  • Perfect for travel, fitness, shopping, Reindeer riding and more
  • Never again experience that gut-wrenching feeling of being without your cell. It fits ALL cell phones!
  • Dozens of styles and colors available to match any ugly Christmas sweater or occasion.
  • Hook the bag directly onto your belt loops and go hands free.  No belt loops? No problem! A matching strap lets you rock your Hipzbag across body or around your waist (3 Ways to Wear!).
  • Retail starts at $19.95 at
 You cannot beat a starting price of $19.95.  I recall when my son was born, I wanted a nice, leather, fanny bag.  No wait....I know the word fanny may sound very dated, but over the years I was only able to find what I was looking for at Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Guess and they were not starting at $19.95 and they are stylish also.  I am thrilled to find a reasonably price bag that keeps me looking hip.

They are so hip, when I received my Hipzbag, my daughter immediately asked for it.  It is very appealing to young adults as well.

The Hipzbag is a great holiday gift, that I know women of all ages will have many uses for while on the go.

Best Buy Has the LG OLED TV – The Ultimate Display! @BestBuy #HintingSeason #OLEDatBestBuy

It is hinting season and I hope someone, just anyone is listening.  I need an LG OLED TV!!!

You may be asking what is LG OLED TV.  Well... the stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21" thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. Learn more here:

Can you imagine viewing like:  your first kiss, a baby's first steps or the majesty of a desert sunset. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG's latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you've ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.

·         Infinite contrast ratio and stunning color - delivers more natural, lifelike viewing.
·         4 Color Pixel technology enhances color range and accuracy.
·         Super thin design (consider how to show visually)

·         Find content faster with webOS

I am telling you I NEED this!!!  NO really...a few months ago, while we were moving someone, who shall remain nameless, placed my television flat and the screen shattered.  They did replace my television and I am grateful.  Well, they did not replace it with the same quality of my original, but they did the right thing by purchasing a new one.  My original television had a great home theater system and now my new television has none.  Oh how I miss it.  But after reading about the  LG OLED TV,  I am beginning to think my old television would have soon needed to be upgraded anyway.  There is nothing like having a great home theater system.

How much does the LG OLED TV cost?  Here is the good thing.   There is no required coupon. Best Buy’s everyday price of $3499.99 (save $500).

After seeing this LG OLED TV, I WANT one.  So if anybody is listening/reading and are looking for the perfect gift for me, now you know.

Head over to Best Buy and check out the LG OLED TV.  It will be a perfect holiday gift for that perfect someone.

Freedom Friday - Twisting My Words

The other day my son and I where walking through Nordstrom.  As we walked through the store, I touched on a sore topic, that should have been discussed at home.

I began asking him questions and making statements about the negative topic.  All the while, he was looking around and slightly pushing his little hand down, gesturing for me to speak lower and then began saying, "Mom please not here?"  I looked at him and said, "You are kidding...if you were doing what you are supposed to, I would be saying nice things"   I then began to make  positive statements as we continued through the store.  He then says with a grin on his face, "Why thank you.  I am so happy you are so proud of me."  WHAT his this kid for real!!!  Mind you at this point people are passing by, there were not any people around when I was speaking the truth or should I say the bad.

I could not help but laugh.  He is an awesome child, but he does get into somethings and needs reminding.  But on this day, I saw I side of him I did not know existed.

Happy Friday and Happy Thanksgiving

Vivant Skin Care Review - Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Wash 8oz #Vivantskincare

For the past three weeks I have been using Vivant Skincare .  This is one facial cleanser that cleans and brightens my skin.  I do not have problem skin, but I am always looking for a great cleanser that will give me a flawless look or at least close to it.

This 3-in-1 wash has many benefits:

This powerful yet gentle antioxidant wash has Mandelic derived from almonds, green tea extract, grape seed, kiwi fruit and honey extracts.  Mandelic is ideal for adult acne because of it's anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. On blotchy skin it "lifts" skin discolorations and dark spots, while also having the benefical side effect of rejuvenating fine lines by helping to generate new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

I have not had to use a lot when applying it to my face for cleansing.  It lathers up pretty well when adding a small amount of water.  It has actually removed mascara pretty well.  After washing and going over my lashes with a towel the mascara is removed.

As I stated I have been using Vivant Skincare and have been pleased, but for the past couple of days I decided to add sea salt face cleanser as well.  The combination has been amazing!  When I wake up in the morning my skin is so bright.  I do this in the morning and at night.  I absolutely love this combination.

This is a powerful yet gentler form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Mandelic is also ideal for treating sensititve Black, Hispanic, and Asian skin that becomes irritated by harsh benzoyl peroxide products.

It also helps ingrown hairs and can also be used as a shampoo on scalp to control dandruff and acne.  I just discovered it has the extra benefits, in which I plan to wash my hair with it as well.  My hair gets a bit dry in the winter.

You will like the many benefits Vivant Skin Care has to offer. 

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.
