PRODUCT REVIEW: Dot&Dot Slim Tube Packing Cubes (Available in 10 Colors)

I love this little bag :)
It's waterproof-lined on the inside, mesh see-through, and a great size.
I had it hooked to my carry-all tote's strap to hang on the inside, but I took it off last night to carry under my arm while I was out at a Harvest Party. Came in very handy in holding my license, a couple of dollars, my keys, eyeglasses when I didn't need them, a pen, chapstick, car-pack of kleenex, etc.
I love this bag :)

    PRODUCT REVIEW: 100% Pure Yacon Syrup - Metabolism Booster - All Natural Weight Loss Yacon Syrup - Raw Yacon Syrup

    I received this a couple of weeks ago and finally opened it this last weekend.

    I used it on toast, and then later made 'molasses' cookies with it. I like it. It's not overly sweet, and very much reminds me of molasses. 

    I also used it on some coffee just to see what it would be like, it was good! Melted down quickly of course, and made the coffee taste really good! 

    It's a fine product and I will end up finishing the bottle!

    My Rating: A

  • Pure yacon syrup assists in weight loss and slimming waist sizes, regulating blood sugar, and increasing daily fiber intake

  • The syrup, distilled from the Peruvian tuber yacon -- contains up to 50 percent fructooligosacharides, or FOS. FOS, classified as a prebiotic, is a non-caloric sweetener and also a fiber source.

  • According to a 2009 Scientific study, daily intake of yacon syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index.

  • Yacon syrup Speeds up the metabolism to combat excess fat and regulates the hunger hormone, making you feel full longer.

  • Low-Glycemic Sweetener

    PRODUCT REVIEW: Diet Standards AminoHD 1000 BCAA Capsules

    I took these capsules for two weeks, one per morning, in between meals (one of the suggestions on the label), and though I wasn't specifically looking to "lose weight" via these tablets, though I do need to lose weight, they had no negative effect on my body and I did notice a little 'leaning' in my arms recently. I can honestly only relate that to these specific capsules because I'm not doing anything different for that. 

    I had a positive experience with this product.

    My Rating: A

    (addendum: I will probably increase my intake of this product because I have been having a hard time losing weight recently because of my perimenopause)

    1. Prevents chaffing
    If your little one has a diaper rash, try dabbing a small amount of coconut oil on the area that’s irritated and allow it to dry before replacing the diaper.

    2. Soothes sore throats
    There’s nothing more irritating than an itchy, sore throat, right? The next time you feel one coming on, try swallowing a teaspoon of coconut oil or adding it to your cup of tea.
    3. Heals wounds
    Because of its antibacterial and antifungal properties, coconut oil can be lightly applied over superficial cuts and scrapes. This isn't for deep cuts.
    4. Improves cholesterol
    Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which boosts your HDL cholesterol – the “good” kind – levels. High HDL levels can reduce your risk for heart disease, which is the leading cause of death for African-American women.
    5. Burns fat
    While it seems like adding oil to your diet would do more harm than good, it’s actually quite the opposite with coconut oil. It contains medium-chain saturated fats, which can boost your metabolism and are easier to digest.
    6. Fights congestion
    Feeling congested? Instead of running out to the store and spending money on a jar of vapor rub, try a natural alternative, such as coconut oil to eliminate any congestion.
    7. Prevents nosebleeds
    One of the most common causes of nosebleeds is dry nostrils. Applying a tiny amount of coconut oil inside of your nose can moisten your mucus membranes.
