Happy Birthday Ty!!!

My baby's no baby no more!
Another year has passed.
This was a challenging one.
It's been a pretty rough one for all our family.
We've lost a few,
surgeries galore ~
Including yours!
Splint ~ off
Cast ~ off

Last day for boot
Physical Therapy starts!!
Soon no scooter ~ wahoo!!
But our brightest Star came out this year ~
 you became an Uncle for the first time
She took our breath away and melted our hearts.
Just the shot in the arm we all needed.
You are such a loving person,
she is lucky to have you in her life!
She loves her Uncle Bear!!

I am proud to call you my son
only wish you all the very best in life.

I love you with all my heart

Paint'em Pretty ~ Snow

I received Nail Art Brushes so I was hoping to do a really good job on my snowflake this time.  It's better, but I NEED practice! ;)

3 coats of Pure Ice in Bikini
with our cold weather I'm renaming it Jack Frost!!
Snow and Snowflake is Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer
by L.A. Colors in white.

Center dot of Snowflake is Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer
by L.A. Colors in silver glitter.
Lastly topped with one coat of my fav
top coat Sally Hansen's Megashine.

I used the two smallest brushes for the Snowflake
and the dotting tool for the Snow.

Professional Nail Art Brush Review #nailartbrush

For those of you who follow my blog, you know by now my therapist has ordered a ''prescribed'' me time.
It is to be something I used to love to do,
hence mine is painting my nails, my Colors of the Week posts..
So when I was asked to review this set of Professional Nail Art Brushes, I was over the moon with excitement! 

This high quality set includes 8 Professional Nail Art Brushes/Tools for detailed painting, drawing, dotting, and designing in Christmas White from A Store Plus.

Ideal for both the beginner (that's me)
and professional nail artist.

I got right into it and started painting my nails asap!
With these brushes I hope to practice enough to improve my designs. SO happy to receive these brushes!

Falling snow and a snowflake,
not too shabby for my first time, huh?

These brushes are great for a beginner as they are not very expensive. I like their wood handle which fits my hand well and is light to hold. They did not leave any bristle hairs behind when I used them and were easy to clean. I was really impressed that they all came with a plastic sleeve to protect their bristles which range from thick to incredibly thin. The dotting tool is great, no more using a bobby pin or toothpick ;).
I can now get perfectly round dots.
Anyone who likes to paint their nails and
do designs or drawings will love this set.
I only wish they had come with a pamphlet
with the names and what each brush was for.
A little bag to keep them in would be nice too. 

Nail Art Brushes Set is available on Amazon
 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free or a discounted  price from AStorePlus.  Regardless, I only recommend products or
services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. 

CoQ10 Complete Antioxidant & Energy Support Review #CoQ10AntiOxidant

OptimalXT CoQ10 Complete Antioxidant & Energy Support

Gimme Energy or give me death...err sorry got carried away there.

This product seems like a powerhouse for your body all in one. I was anxious to try it out when I was chosen. 

We're all looking for antioxidants, energy, and something to boost our immune system, here is the product description:

SUPPORTS CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH: CoQ10 plays a pivotal role in powering the heart's pumping mechanism by "sparking" the reaction that energizes cardiac tissues.

INCREASED ENERGY: Can boost your energy levels by ensuring your cells are at peak performance.

PREVENT FREE RADICAL DAMAGE: CoQ10 is intended to help your cells produce the energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance, by supplementing your diet with dietary nutrients that assist and support your body's natural systems.

ANTIOXIDANT SUPPORT: Protects your body and cells from damage caused by harmful molecules across multiple organs.

PEAK PERFORMANCE: Co-enzymes assist enzymes to digest food and perform other body processes. They also help protect the heart and skeletal muscles.

Dosage: Take 1 capsule one to three times daily with meals, or as directed by your physician. For best results, moderate daily exercise and a healthy diet are recommended.

Safety Information: Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Keep out of reach of children. Do not take this product if you have any medical condition or are taking any prescription medication. This product is not intended for individuals under the age of 18. Consult your physician prior to use.

I've been taking these on a regular basis for a couple weeks now and feel a little more energized. I am hoping as it builds up in my system I will feel the maximum effects. The information does say it takes 60 to 90days to reach it's full effect. I am currently taking one a day and am pleased with the results. I was having that mid afternoon slump and am happy to report I don't seem to be dragging as much as I was.  I have a lot of stress in my life and have concerns about my heart in the back of my head. I take fish oil as recommended by my physician and am glad to add this to my arsenal. I was glad my Dr. OK'd taking this supplement which will also help support a healthy blood pressure.
I plan to continue purchase another bottle and using
 OptimalXT CoQ10 Complete Antioxidant & Energy Support
for the full 90 days to feel it's full effect.
I'm happily optimistic that if I feel improvement in a mere couple of weeks, that I will feel it's full effect within the 90 days.
If not they even offer a 60 day empty bottle guarantee!  
It's a win, win situation!

CoQ10, what exactly is it?

CoQ10 is naturally orange and found in most cells in the body. CoQ10 helps support cellular energy production in the mitochondria – the powerhouses of most cells. The highest concentrations of cellular mitochondria are found in the hardest working cells in the body, such as the heart, making CoQ10 an important nutrient to help support heart function. Moderate amounts of CoQ10 are found in foods, but the primary source of CoQ10 in the body is produced by the body itself. CoQ10 levels decrease with age and some cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can reduce CoQ10 production, which is why supplementing may be helpful to replenish CoQ10 levels in the body.
