Keeping your closet organized and your clothes off the closet floor....

I love that the velvet coating keeps my clothes from slipping to the floor, they really grab onto the silkiest of materials and even wide boat necks. With the addition of the extra little hanger area you can put together a whole outfit with the ability to put any jewelry or scarves etc on it making it awesome for putting together a work weeks worth of outfits ready to go. My mister has commandeered some for himself because they're perfect for suits. I have hangers that are supposed to be to prevent slippage, but they're padded and HUGE and take up way too much space. These are nice and slim.

DashMate Cell Phone & GPS Holder GIVEAWAY TIME!

I love using my GPS but I've always just had to sit it in the drink holder because it slides off my curved dash making it really hard to actually use properly and makes driving somewhat dangerous, negating the helpfulness of the GPS. On top of that, when it's not elevated it loses the satellite signal. This simple, sturdy little gadget easily attaches to the vent and is right at the perfect eyesight level for super easy navigation assistance. It keeps it's signal and I can see the map and the directions, as well as being able to hear it better. It's portable too, a lot of these dash mounts require a permanent attachment to stay on but with this I don't have to glue or tape something onto my dash. It has a strong grip and doesn't drop your phone, even when going over potholes. And it looks like a cute little old fashioned phone handset :-)

CJS Dash Mate TM. - Cell Phone Vent Mount Holder Cradle for Cars or Trucks works great For all Iphones and it is Universal For Smartphones from 2.5 to 3.5 inches in width.

Vitamin D Deficiency Epidemic
Vitamin D deficiency is a rapidly spreading epidemic that threatens the health of more people each day!
If you work indoors, wear heavy clothing, or live in a cold area with little sunlight, then you're at risk for vitamin D deficiency.
Risk factors also include milk allergies, vegan dieting, daily sunscreen and sun avoidance.
Researchers believe that low vitamin D is behind some of the most debilitating conditions in today's times.
Symptoms associated with severe vitamin D deficiency include:
  • Bone fractures
  • Muscle weakness
  • Increased risk for heart disease
  • Increased cancer risk
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Respiratory illness
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Neurological illness
  • Depression
  • Low immunity
  • Back pain
Vita Sciences Maxasorb Melatonin Sleep Cream - Insomnia Sleep Remedies 1.7 Fl Oz

Vita Sciences Maxasorb Melatonin Sleep Cream - Insomnia Sleep Remedies 1.7 Fl Oz
Natural Melatonin Sleep Cream is the hormone that controls daily day-night cycles of sleep. Some sleep disorders, such as insomnia and Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome (DSPS), are attributed to low melatonin levels. 

Travelers suffering from jet lag and swing shift workers may also benefit from supplemented melatonin. 
As we age our bodies do not make sufficient melatonin. Sleep enhancement is possible in healthy people as well with additional melatonin that may: 

*Decrease the time needed to fall asleep 

*Increase sleepiness 

*Increase sleep duration. 

Each measured dose of Maxasorb Melatonin lotion from our airless dispenser delivers 3 milligrams of melatonin with a full press of the pump. Just before bedtime, rub the easily absorbed, odorless lotion on your arms or legs. 
For travelers trying to ease the effects of jet lag, apply Maxasorb Melatonin lotion the day of travel close to the target bedtime at your destination. This will aid in falling asleep faster, improves alertness during the day, and reduces daytime fatigue. 
Use the product throughout the trip and for a week after return to help your body readjust its natural sleep cycle. Natural ingredients assure this lotion is gentle to your skin.

Fractionated Coconut Oil - Best Carrier Oil for Essential Oils, Base for Aromatherapy and Soothing Massage Oil

It's another one of those multipurpose products that is a constant in my house. We use it for everything from softening rough skin, making hair soft and silky and my current favorite aka; "honey! please rub my back!" This is a great carrier oil too, so you can add your own essential oils or blend with other oils to make custom blends. It's scentless, so it doesn't interfere with the aromatherapeutic properties of essential oils. I like the smaller 4oz bottle for keeping in my purse so I always have some with me (you just never know!) I'm a klutz so I like having some with me at all times for any cuts or scrapes- it's also amazing for keeping your hands from drying out from constant washing and for chapped lips. I use it for everything!

Bonus- I ADORE the hip label!

Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler -surprisingly awesome!

Eyelash Curler - Complete With Eyelash Curler Refill Pad - The Best Eyelash Tool For All Shapes And Sizes

When I express my amazement, it's because I've used ridonk expensive eyelash curlers from the likes of Tweezerman that still didn't do the job. I have weird shaped eyes I suppose, because I can never get lash curlers to get all of my lashes. I have this one Sephora curler that I simply threw away because it only got about half of my lashes (and pulled, to boot.) I really didn't expect such a relatively inexpensive tool to be the one that made the birds sing, but there ya go. It gets all of my lashes from the shortest to the longest, corner to corner in one squeeze. There's no pinching or pulling and it does exactly what it's supposed to do- make my stick straight lashes curl and not scrape against the lenses of my glasses like they do if I don't curl them. I've been using this regularly for months now and continue to be pleased with the results. As a bonus, it comes with a replacement silicone pad! If you have small or somewhat deep set eyes and have had a hard time finding a curler that will work for you, I recommend giving this one a try.

Today's Happy Place!

Sherman is my new best friend! Extremely soft and cuddly and fully stuffed- a lot of stuffed animals on the market now are so poorly stuffed that they go completely flat with any minimal amount of squishing. Not Sherman! He's perfect for babies since he doesn't have any parts that present choking hazards or can come loose. His fluffy self is easy to clean and still retains his fluffsterness. Tight stitching, well made, and will last through years of loving. 

Just like Sherman Hemsley. (which is what I call my new fluffer nutter.)

Another awesome Evergreen Naturals supplement- this time for perfect hair, skin and nails!

Oh thank the goddess, these actually WORK!
I've been a broken record about it, but my lupus and all the medication I take has caused my already fine hair to start coming out quite a bit and lose a lot of it's (already minimal) thickness and body. I took these for a straight month and I'm honestly amazed at what this did for my locks. My hair has become thicker, bouncier and fuller. Areas that seemed to be thinning quite a bit are filling out. I'm seriously impressed with what these did for my hair. I hate to seem vain, but my long red hair has been my glory crown ever since I quit being made fun of for having red hair as a kid :-) This is making my hair look better than it did when I was actually HEALTHY! The one downside is that you have to take one with each meal (or 3 times a day) which can be hard to remember, but the results are worth it.

As a bonus, you also get glowing skin and for once my nails have stopped peeling and are actually growing! It's downright exciting! This is the second product from this awesome brand that I've used, and once again they've knocked it out of the park.

Happy Place! SUPERPOWERS!!!!

Comic Character Superhero Poster - The Giant-size Omnibus of Superpowers Poster (24 X 36) By Pop Chart Lab

OMG! This poster is SOOOOOO rad! The design is amazing, the quality is amazing. I love the worn comic edge style and the flow chart style is fascinating (and often hilarious!) It's now in a place of honor at eye level in the downstairs bathroom with the unfortunate side effect of having to go bang on the door when guests don't come out for half an hour.....

Quality wise, it's on excellent thick paper that isn't going to crease or tear and will survive in it's natural state until we go get a poster frame for it. And yes, it's awesome enough to merit a frame. I had a hard time picking a poster because all of their designs are unique and stylish. HIGHLY recommended, right down to the sturdy and indestructible shipping tube.

OMG! These are so CUTE! Le Bleu Bean Espresso Cup Stackers

I wish they made stackers like this for EVERYTHING! The cube reminds me of a Lego and a stack of these is such a giant space saver in the cabinet. Absolutely brilliant!

Not to overlook the amazing design aspect, the espresso cup itself is lovely. Very well made, heavy duty and in and of itself a little work of art. They're the perfect size and fit underneath the spouts of just about any brand of espresso machine under the sun. I plan on filling my mug cabinet with these cuties.
