Burt's Bees New Sensitive Skin formula

I just got my Burt's Bees Sensitive skin bzzkit today! Soo excited! I just tried the moisturizer and my face feels so soft! I love it! I was surprised to read the key ingredient is cotton but I like the fact that it supports the production of keratin.  Kind of new agey for an all natural product!

Like Burt's Bees on facebook!

I'm a bzzagent :)

Apple Squares

Sitting at home again on a Saturday night *sigh*   I figured I might as well bake and seeing that it's a cool fall night I thought something with cinnamon and apples sounded like perfection!  My all time favorite recipe website is Allrecipes.com check it out if you haven't.  

Apple Squares sounded simple and delicious.  Perfect for a cool fall night and I'm thinking they'll be even better with my coffee for breakfast in the morning. :)

I don't think mine turned out too bad and they taste delicious!

Trend Micro Titanium Review

My newest BzzAgent campaign is for Trend Micro Titanium virus protection software.  I received this product free to try for 1 year.  The install was easy and the website walked you through step by step.  I had a little trouble with uninstalling my previous virus protection but I believe that was because I had several older virus protection programs still on my computer that I wasn't aware of.  After I removed them the set up was simple and quick.  As with most virus protection you can leave the settings as is or customize to your liking.  I went in to customize mine which was very simple and easy to understand.

My computer is actually running faster with this program and it seems to be doing it's job.  No virus' found as of yet.  I'm sure it will be tested soon as I tend to download a lot from the internet and enjoy wating tv programs online that I miss while I'm at work.  A cool feature is that Trend Micro Titanium lets me know if links on the internet are safe to click on so maybe that's part of the reason why I haven't had to worry about any virus'.

Overall it seems to be a great program.  Easy to use and very affordable.  Go here to check out the program for yourself and receive a special discount!

If you don't know what a BzzAgent is then you are missing out! As a BzzAgent you get to try some amazing products for free as part of BzzCampaigns. All they ask in return is that you share your honest opinion about the products you try by talking with friends both in person and online. That’s it!

Love CVS!

If you shop at CVS you MUST HAVE one of these little handy dandy cards and here's why; Today I bought 2 boxes of Clairol hair color for $0.31! Yep you read that right all I paid was the tax. 

Here's how, right now CVS has their Clairol color hair color 2/$5 which worked perfectly for me because I just so happen to have $5 in extra care bucks burning a hole in my wallet!  What are extra care bucks you ask?  They are register rewards you get back when you buy certain items at CVS.  Previously I had went in to buy some shampoo and they had a deal on Aussie products (I love the smell of Aussie!) that if you bought 2 you would get $3 in extra care bucks at the register.  Since I needed it anyway I bought the 2 shampoos and the extra care bucks printed at the register.  This is basically money back that can be used at any CVS on any item you want.  Easy peasy!

Do your taxes online free!

 It's tax time again!

If you're like me you want every penny of your tax return and don't want to share any of it with a tax preparer.  If your eligible to file with a federal 1040 form you can do your taxes online with H&R Block for FREE!  It's a super easy fill in the blank questionaire and tells you exactly what forms you will need before you get started.  And you can choose to receive your money by direct deposit or a mailed check.

I finished mine last night in about 40 minutes and I have a full time job and part-time business!!  Click here to get started.

For $27.95 H & R Block will automatically fill in your state form and send it digitally for you or if you're cheap like me, you can go to your state's internal revenue website.  For those of us who work in Illinois it's here.

I was not compensated in any way for this post.

Nobody talks smack about my fur babies!!

Ugh...  I finally meet a guy that's not jail bait, doesn't have 5 baby mama's, and has a j-o-b and now I'm wondering.....is he not very smart or just completely tactless?  

Since we met through mutual friends the other night he found me on facebook and we messaged back and forth on there until I gave him my cell # and he started to text me....alot.....

I played along and text back and forth for a couple hours.  Just asking what each other liked and getting to know you type things and it was all good......until.....I asked him if he has pets....he said no....I said I have 3....2 dogs and a cat....his response was, and I quote, "OMG, the smell!! lol!"    Uhhh excuse me did you just tell me my house stinks?  I text hey! be nice!, thinking he's going to try to cover up his lack of tact by saying....sorry....or just kidding....nope he just says pets aren't for him.   Now anyone that knows me knows that these are my fur-babies and this guy who hasn't even seen them or my house just insulted them and me!  What the???  I rather abruptly told him we'd chat later I needed to go.....possibly I'm in shock?

The next day he starts to text again I ignore him for a few hours...then text sorry been busy!...he asked what are you doing?  which is not really his business but I answer....cleaning my house.  someone (meaning him!!) made me paranoid that my house smells yesterday!.....now I would think after that comment any normal person would see that they'd hit a nerve.  Apparently normal he is not because his next text is......oh too bad we could have done lunch.....uhh really? I don't think so....I quit texting him back.

Today I wake up to another text from him.  Have a great day...blah blah blah.....and a facebookok I didn't say the jerk part........now the important question.......should I delete him from facebook?  or hide my stream form him? or do nothing?  I haven't dated in almost 4 years so someone give me a clue please!! message...you don't seem interested?....really?  you think!!!  After much debating I just messaged back "I don't think we're a good match."  Jerk!........

All comments, anecdotes, and dating for dummies tips welcome!  ;)

Flaxmeal Cinnamon Muffins

My new years resolution this year is to eat healthier so I'm trying out some new recipes.  Here's a great muffin recipe I found on Linda's Low Carb website.  They definitely need some butter (I used light butter) to spead on top but over all not bad for my first attempt at using flaxmeal.  

Per Serving: 130 Calories; 12g Fat; 3g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 3g Dietary Fiber; 1g Net Carb
