Olia Box Jewelry Review

There's a fun new subscription box that's filled with 2-3 jewelry items.  Just sign up, fill out your preferences then sit back and wait for your surprise box to arrive each month for just $25.  For $35 you can receive a box with 3-4 items.  They also offer limited edition boxes that you can add.

I received the March, 2014 box to review.  Therefore I didn't fill in a survey to let them know my preferences.  The survey is just 3 simple questions about your jewelry style preferences.  I generally like most of the current fashion jewelry that's out there and this box didn't disappoint.



The package came nicely wrapped.
The contents were in a cloth drawstring bag that's also great to save for storage.

Silent Sunday #9

Thanks for stopping by!!
Here are just a few of the pictures that I captured during this past week.


My week started with a new type of photo facial that I'd never had before.  I also had a peel along with it.  I will be doing a full video review on this one in a few days.

The Hungry Girl Diet Book Giveaway

I recently went to a signing in Dallas for Lisa Lillien's new Hungry Girl Diet book.  I went to elementary school with Lisa (way back when) and make it a point to go to her signings when she is here in Dallas.  She did a quick talk about the diet plan in this new book with the audience followed by a Q & A session.  Lisa is so much fun and she's hilarious too!!   She kept the audience laughing.  I could definitely hang out with her as we seem to have a lot in common.

Slendertone Belt Project - Final Thoughts

Several months ago I agreed to use the Slendertone Abdominal Belt for approximately 8 weeks.  At the completion of 4 weeks I did a blog post and mid-program review and update of the product.  That post can be found HERE.  Now that the entire 8 weeks has passed, I'd like to do a final review on the product and share my thoughts.

This Slendertone belt is used to tone the abdominal muscles through electrical muscle stimulation.  You simply place the electrodes in the correct position on the belt, wrap the belt around your abdomen, strap it into place and go about your business.  The belt can be used by both men and women.  It has 7 different programs and 99 levels of stimulation.  The stimulation can be quite intense.  I must admit that I'm quite the wimp and only made it up to levels 67-70 for most of my sessions.  Anything above that started to hurt me and I'm not into pain.

Silent Sunday #8

Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous week.  I had an extremely busy and fun filled one myself.  I tried to remember to take some pictures along the way so I could recall the fun times.


I started the week off with a walk.  I hurt my calf while in Colorado on vacation last weekend and had to take it easy this week.  I probably should have waited a little longer before hitting the trails.

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme - Review

I recently saw this cc cream in makeup artist Lisa Eldridge's recent newsletter as one of her favorites.  Well you know what that means??!!  I had to have it!!  It doesn't appear to be sold in the US yet so I had to order it on the internet from an oversea's site.  I didn't mind waiting for the package to arrive since I have an over abundance of foundations and cc creams in my collection anyway.

This product is labeled as a Daily Unifying Complete Correction Cream for Redness-Prone Sensitive Skin.    It is from France, therefore most of the text on the packaging is in French.  It has an spf of 30 which is a good amount of sun protection.  The pump dispenser is sanitary and easy to use.  I paid almost $22 plus shipping for 50 ml, which is equivalent to 1.69 ounces.  I felt that this was a reasonable price given the product itself.

Silent Sunday #7

Happy Silent Sunday from Colorado!!  We're on a short family ski vacation in Bachelor Gulch.  They say this is God's Country for a reason.  Absolutely gorgeous and peaceful!


This picture is from one of my walks this week at home.  I'm sort of fascinated by the airplanes
that fly overhead and occasionally try to snap a picture when I see one.
