    Bentonite Clay Detox Bath

    Bentonite Clay Detox 

    Bentonite Clay Detox

    I have a love/hate relationship with Bentonite Clay. When I first tried Bentonite Clay I used it on my face and it made my face super dry. I then used it on my hair and it left my hair dry as well. Then recently I found this YouTube video and decided to give it a try!

    Moms do a lot they don’t get breaks and are running non-stop I believe moms need a spa day everyday but if your like me you just can’t on one income. So how can I give myself a spa treatment?  With Bentonite clay I started to give myself a spa treatment in my bathtub.

    Why do I use Bentonite Clay? I understand that everyday we are exposed to toxic chemicals and we need to detox from toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. Bentonite clay helps with that process.

    Benefits of Bentonite Clay

    • Removes toxins by drawing out of the body
    • helps with skin problems like eczema
    • detox skin
    • natural mouthwash and toothpaste
    • Alkaline the body

    Bentonite Clay Detox

    Moms you deserve to be pampered everyday for the work that you do. I recommend taking this bath with some candles all around and have your husband watch the kids for an hour.

    Results

    I stayed in the Bentonite Bath for 30 minutes and my skin felt so silky and smooth

     

    Have you taken a Bentonite Detox? If you haven’t would you give it a try?

    My face is super sensitive….So that means I can’t use ponds, dove soap or anything with fragrance on my face. my face breaks out in bumps. When I was younger, I used Noxzema on my skin but realized it wasn’t giving me the same results as when I was in high school but I was still using it I would wash my face with Noxzema and then I would put Vaseline on my skin and that was it.

    CamelBack Resort

     CamelBack Resort

       I received a complimentary stay in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    CamelBack Resort

    Thanks to CamelBack Resort we were invited to stay at this ski and indoor water lodge. Would you believe it only took less than 2 hours to feel like you are far away from home. Located in the Poconos, CamelBack Resort offers great service to its guests.

    CamelBack Resort

    My husband who can be very particular was pleased with the look of the hotel with its fireplace and grand piano and leather chair in the lobby.

    Camelback Resort

    We had a lot to do so we decided to snow tub first as we checked in before the 4pm time the desk attendant let us know that our room was ready (that was a brownie point). The check in process was very simple and high-tech as we did not get a card or keys for check in but a wristband which was great idea especially if you are doing so many activities I can imagine losing those things.

    We go back to our double suite to dry and change for our next activity but you can’t help but notice the white and brown sheets and granite top sink, refrigerator, microwave and get this bonus (balcony).

    3 reasons to buy Barbie- Curvy, Petite, Tall

    3 reasons to buy Barbie- Curvy, Petite, Tall3 reasons to buy Barbie-Curvy, Petite and Tall. Move over DocMcMuffins! I am going to buy my daughter a Mattel doll.When I was growing up I played with Mattel dolls they weren’t petite they were tall, skinny and white.

    As I grew up and started to look at racial disparities I saw studies that suggested that Black children who played with White dolls had self-esteem issues, I started to look at the Barbie I played with differently and I vowed that my daughter would only play with African-American dolls. I didn’t want her to have self-esteem issues due to a Barbie Doll. 

    But now in 2016, Mattel announced 3 reasons to buy Barbie-Curvy, Petite and Tall as well as different shades, and cute more modest outfits.

    3 new reasons to buy Barbie-Curvy, Petite, Tall

    [bctt tweet=”My daughter is petite and I can tell you the pain of growing up petite so I am elated there is a African-American petite doll. Mattel finally got it right but why did it take so long? While it could be because of heated new criticism, there will no criticism coming from here Mattel.#Thedollevolves”]

    In a statement on Nydailynews.com, “they stated the more realistic shapes become available at Barbie.com on Thursday. They were crafted under the top-secret “Project Dawn” initiate over the past two years.

    3 reasons to buy Barbie-Curvy, Petite and Tall

    According to Barbie.com, girls everywhere now have infinitely more ways to play out their stories and spark their imagination through Barbie. Along with more overall diversity, we proudly add three new body types to out line. #Thedollevolves

    5 year old’s can sky dive

     5 year old’s can skydive!

    My family received complimentary tickets to experience I-FLY in Westchester, NY to facilitate my review. All opinions expressed here are my own.

    January 19th, I received a media invitation to try out I-Fly with my family in Yonkers, NY. I always wanted to go skydiving what can you say I am adventurous once I was chosen I was super-excited.I went with my family and I want to tell you that a 5-year-old’s can skydive. I-Fly in Westchester recently opened its doors and with only being 20 minutes from the Bronx I am sure they will attract many visitors.

    5 year old's can skydive

    The I-Fly building is apart of Ridge Hill in Yonkers, NY you can’t miss the contemporary style building. You can either make your reservations online or you can come right to the facility. When you make your reservations online you sign in with the kiosks they have available.

    FullSizeRender 26

     

    There are different packages based on whether you are a beginner or skilled and how many people you are with and how much time you would like so there are many packages to accommodate your needs.

    What is the age group?

    The great thing about indoor skydiving is that you can skydive from the age of 3-103.

    After you register as a first time flyer you have to take a beginners class which is about 10 minutes long where you learn the correct posture and hand signals. After that you are directed to wear your I-Fly suits you are given a helmet, ear plugs, goggles and a flying suit which the instructor tells you is better suited for beginners because it gives you more control.

    FullSizeRender 25

    You wait in the glass room area and wait your turn to go into the open air my 2-year-old daughter was too young but she still got to wear a helmet and go into the booth to be up close. A 5-year-old can skydive.

    The experience

    When you first get in the wind  tunnel your body naturally tries to fight but remember RELAX! As you relax you realize you just go with the wind. This process is just like skydiving at 1,000 feet in the air. It is a unique experience that we all enjoyed even our 5-year-old son who get fearful but I cried when I saw my son overcoming his fear.

    You get two sessions and on the last session they take you high up to the couple of turns and back down again. Then that’s it your done! You receive a certificate for your flying and you get to purchase cheaper packages to come back.  You can advance to different levels to become pro! They have birthday packages and the more people you bring the cheaper individual costs (hint, hint).

    I love how helpful the instructors were who were all real skydivers themselves they explained that the I-Fly experience is more challenging because it’s in a controlled environment. The company itself also works with Make-A-Wish foundation and other charitable organizations. They also do educational school trips as well.

    ***We family approve this experience*****

    We highly recommend that you and your family experience I-Fly. We plan on coming back again when our daughter turns three but know that a 5-year-old can skydive.

    If my 5-year-old can do it so can you so what are you waiting for are you going to take the plunge?
