Lysol’s Hand soap, part II


Lysol’s new Touch of Foam hand soap has been just the best soap I have tried to date! Since receiving the soap, free as a sample from, my hands have never been so soft, clean, and healthy! The soap smells pleasantly, and uses half as much as soap I previously used. This soap is awesome and I will be purchasing it again!

Lysol’s new hand wash!


I cannot say enough good things about Lysol’s new antibacterial foaming hand wash. This hand wash is gentle, yet strong, helpful, yet affordable. The soap has lasted and lasted in my home kitchen. What impresses me most of all, is its ability to gently clean my hands with a luxuriously pleasant scented foam, while still delivering the strength Lysol is known for. The bottle is sturdy, the pump is firm, and the product is long lasting. I received this product free from, but already plan to purchase more units of this soap, in bulk, for all rooms of my home that need such products. This is awesome soap! This product is a winner! Get it, try it, love it!

Garnier Fructis Hydration Line


<img src=”; alt=””/>

I cannot say enough about what this line has done for my hair! I have gone from frizzy and in need of a daily in-treatment, balm, shampoo, conditioner, and detainger to a shampoo, conditioner, and weekly hair treatment. The time used on my hair has been cut in half, and as will the expense because of this new line. Keep in consideration, that the line was a sample, of three products, offered to me by BzzAgent to try, but they are as good any product. I have done a bit of research on the line and can vouch that it is sulfate-free, moisturizing, lathers well, uses only a quarter size amount per application, and smells pleasantly.

I have spoken to others about the product and they too, those whom have tried it, have raved about the product as well!

For those interested in trying this line as well, go to the site, find the hydration line campaign, and you will be able to find a 1.00 coupon.

Try this out!

BzzAgent Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Campaign


<img src=”; alt=””/>

I received the package and upon doing so used them,and styled my hair as usual. The first shampoo, conditioner, combing through hair with shower comb, and after shower leave-in conditioner; as this was not a weekend, I did not opt to use a hair mask. The products left my hair in such great shape, I did not have to diffuse nor add hair milk to finish the look. That was impressive! Following this I commenced with the day!


Today was the weekly meeting and brunch for the community action league, which consisted of over forty women who plan events locally. During the intermission where we eat, I discussed this bzzagent campaign as several women inquired about the products in my hair, as I have long naturally curly hair, and where they could purchase the products. Over twenty women wrote the items down in their phones, looked up bzzagent, and some women even touched my hair and smelled it. After the meeting, I had several women text to say they went and purchased the entire line of products today!

After this, I went online and shared the digital coupons with friends and family. I cannot speak higly enough about these products, and keeping in ind that they were given to me for free, they still rank high enough to merit mention, and will be a new item purchased regularly for myself!

Old becomes new


As sprint approaches, I spend a lot of time gazing about my back yard wondering what new flowers will adorn my flower beds, patio sets, and fire pit area. As I looked out in the yard today, I thought… color. So, I just wanted to post a thought photo of a volunteer project I participated in several summers ago, at a family recovery shelter. I painted, using basic exterior paint, in a variety of Caribbean inspired colors, to paint old, rusty wrought iron outdoor furniture pieces. The items were first sanded, they primed with egg-shell primer, and them painted in lively, beautiful colors, and lastly sealed with outdoor protector spray.  I painted thirty pieces over two weeks, during my days off, and let me tell you… the sun was not my friend, but did help to shed tons of water weight… sixty pounds ago. 🙂

In any event, here is a sample. Pieces can be bought second-hand at flea markets, yard sales, Craigslist. Freecycle, or your local handy, dandy newspapers or free periodicals (yes, folks support literacy, sanity, and thought by browsing local free presses and hometown newspapers). This is a great way to recycle, re-use, and reduce trash in landfills as well.

Here’s to the old becoming new.
