Excelerol Supplement for Memory Focus and Energy Review

Recently I was selected to try Excelerol
And was given a 90 day supply. It did not take me very long to see just how quickly, Excelerol
works. I found in the very first day I had much more energy and focus, the ability to concentrate on my work and alertness. This product works fast and it really has some powerful ingredients in a liquid suspension capsule.

As most of you know that because I'm 52 and going through menopause its sometimes really hard for me to have the focus and energy I need to do my work. I was so happy I was selected to try Excelerol. I found that It performed so very well that I can't imagine how I was able to do anything well without it.

Than being said before you buy it for yourself I encourage you to talk it over with your doctor to make sure its ok for you to take ,I generally say this about any supplement because its just good practice.

Im sure once you have had a chance to try it you will see the huge difference this makes in your ability to do just about anything you need to do in the day. I even found out that I was able to focus on my computer games and work out the puzzles sooo much quicker than I normally would and this made them a lot more fun than usual. Though the box says it will lasts for 6 hours I found ,that for me it lasted much longer than that, and my attention and focus was still good later into the evening which is really good for me because I have been known to work until 10pm.

The only side effects I got were in the first few days and I did have some trouble sleeping and got a slight headache but nothing I could not deal with.

I may end up using this on days I really need that extra boost rather than everyday. I really like it for all the benefits I get from it but on the weekends I may not need that much energy :)

Has these many ingredients in it to help you get up and get going.

Green Tea and white Tea

Guarana & kola nut

Baccoppa Monnieri


Ginko Biloba




Acetyl L-Carnitine





B12 and Niacin

I sure hope you get a chance to see the video review I did for this so you can see what the product looks like and my thoughts about it. I also hope you visit the Excelerol
web site so you can learn more about it there. This is also available at amazon. The digital timer thats included in this 90 day supply has 4 settings so you can use it for different times of the day .I take only one pill a day so I set the timer for 9am. The timer will beep and vibrate or light up its a very handy tool to help you remember to take your pills through out the day.

you can select the timmer to go off with any of these features or just one its really cool and useful.

The bottom line is if you are having trouble with lack of energy or mental focus, or know someone who is, you really will see a great improvement in all of these problems very quickly with Excelerol
I thank you for looking at my review and video for this really hard working product That's literally filled with everything you could want in a supplement for Memory, Focus and abundant energy.

Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar Review

I was so happy I was selected to review Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar. I have been reading a lot of Biblical women and biblical historical's lately and this story went really well with those I have read.

Harvest of Rubies is the story Of a Girl named Sarah who is actually a scribe for the Persian royal family. Sarah Is Jewish by faith and she has to learn how to act once she is thrown into the intrigue of palace life.

Sarah's whole life is about being the best scribe she can be, though she believes in the god of her ancestors she does not really have a personal relationship with him and her work is her idol. She keep searching for fulfillment and happiness in the one thing she knows she can do well. Once all that is taken from her and she is thrust into a marriage not of her choosing Sarah has to seek God and find a new path that will lead to all her dreams coming true and not, just the very basic needs she thought she wanted.

I truly loved this book and I had to really force myself to stop reading it and save some for the next day. I read christian and biblical fiction as a start in my morning devotions but I found myself reading this book well after than and just really loved it. Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar is partly a romance and partly a really good biblical study of an example of how God will work out his perfect design for our lives, even in the times we think we are in a real mess. If you like a really good story about how life was like in biblical times, I recommend this book to you because, its really one of the best I have read and I came away from it with a better understanding of Gods Plan for my life ,though I may not clearly see it now.

The beauty box boom

Lately I have been seeing a whole lot of companies come out with beauty sampling boxes,so I thought it would make for an interesting blog post. I did some research and found some that really look nice so I'm going to put up some photos and links and ask you some questions.

first have you ever bought or signed up for a beauty box. if you got beauty boxes in the past which one is your favorite.

I have tried the New beauty test tube a few times but the higher price tag had me canceling it when our finances because a problem. I really liked it but could not justify spending 29.99 on the tube and the giant shipping charge. I have since seen a few others more reasonable in price.

The first box I think is cool is the Beauty Bar sample Society This one is only 15.00 a month and includes the shipping -the kit will contain 5 beauty products a 15.00 gift card to spend on a 50.00 order and a 12 months sub to allure as well as beauty advice.

Sample Society box

This next one is also nice from Total Beauty. This one is also 15.00 per month but you dont have to subscribe shipping is included and you pay for a box at a time.

Total beauty box

I found a lot of beauty boxes not available in the U.S that looked interesting but I'm only going to list those available in the U.S for right are a few I found.

Burch box this one has a waiting list and you have to put in your email to be notified when you can buy the woman's or mens box depending on which one you want. you get to make a profile so the boxes are sent with the stuff you use and it only 10.00 a month free shipping with subscription.

Birch Box

Luxbox from loose button-this one requires you to sign up to even get in the door ,you will be given an invite and than get the box by subscription with 7-8 beauty and life style samples of higher end products sent every 3 months kinda like the new beauty test tube it does have free shipping and as far as I can tell the boxes run 24.00 if you pay for the year.

Loose button

Beauty box 5 seems to be really popular and I can see why its a monthly sun for 12.00 a month with 4-5 high end samples. shipping is free and you can save more by paying in advance for the year which I think saves you 44 dollars per year.

beauty box 5

Beauty army box-choose up to 6 products to try monthly for 12.00 free shipping and create a profile. This is a sub and you can save a bit by paying for the year.

Beauty army

This last one is the New Beauty test tube I have tried this one and it does come with some nice really high end samples but its 29.00 a tube and 10.00 shipping which make it the least affordable for me occurring every 3 months.

Though I had not problems in the short time I was getting them I have heard of it being hard to cancel and charges appearing with no box delivered but those may be isolated incidences. it is a nice box and comes with the magazine and a gift card for spalook to buy the one you want in full size. Mine came with a 25.00 off 50 Im not sure what the value is now as My sub was in 2010.

New Beauty Test tube

So thats what I found out but I will continue to look at these as they become available. Thank for looking at this post I hope you find something you like. You can also get boxes in things that are not as much beauty related like in the new craveboxes and others.

Marika Tek dry wic T shirts and yoga ware

I am so happy I got to try a Marika Tek T-shirt recently and I want to be sure I tell you all about them. I hope you get a chance to see the video review I did for it. In that video I am wearing the T-Shirt I received as a sample to do this review.

As most of you know I am trying to get back in shape because I have gained a whole lot of weight because of menopause. I also suffer from hot flashes a lot which are extremely annoying and cause me to perspire a lot.

This is exactly my point about why Marika Tek T-shirts are so helpful in keeping you dry throughout your work out or yoga routine. I even found out that if I sleep in the Marika Tek T-shirt, Ill be much more comfortable than a conventional T-shirt.

So whats different about Marika Tek T-shirt's? well that would be the EXCLUSIVE breathable, super soft, high tech wicking fabric and finish with Dry-Wik for the ultimate in cool dry comfort. The Dry-Wik technology wicks away moisture,so you will stay dry and comfortable even through hot flashes Like I get.

I also really loved the color and softness of the T-Shirt it was just so soft and very comfortable, It fit well and looked attractive yet was so hard working and did the job is was designed to do very well. I loved my Marika Tek T-shirt so much I want a whole bunch of them for working out or just being in the hot Florida sun. I also would like a few extra to sleep in because that's one of the many times I really need a wicking T . I have tried many a wicking T but this one performed better than others I have tried that clam the same thing.

I am able to offer you a code for 20% off all Marika until the end of September using code TEX20 and by shopping at this link Marika Tek
Here is the video review I did for this totally awesome wicking T-shirt my Marika Tek Thanks for looking at my review.

Omax3 Omega 3 supplement review and giveaway

I was so fortunate to be able to try Omax3 Omega 3 supplement recently in a 30 day sample from the company. I really think this is a far superior Omega 3 than I was taking because of Omax's superior purity.

All you have to do to see the difference between Omax and other fish oil soft gels is to look at them, you can see how beautifully clear they are compared to others. I also really appreciate the size of them. Sometimes depending on what I have on hand I cant swallow the larger fish oil gel caps. I end up with a panic attack and bite the pills so I don't have to swallow them. Yikes is that nasty!

With Omax 3 pills I do not have this problem they are much smaller and easy to swallow.

Omax 3 has the highest purity possible and is pharmaceutical grade omega 3s. Taking two Omax 3 soft gels is in fact the equivalent to the received benefits of eating. eight and a half egg yokes or 90 walnuts. That's a lot of food.

I take Omega 3 supplements because I know that at 52 its good for my heart, but more than that I also find that I have less problems with the inflammation in my joints less pain when I'm walking. I have some problem with foot pain I think the weight I have gained through menopause has caused my feet and ankles to rebel so I take Omega 3s to make this less of a problem.

I find that when I stop taking Omega 3s I feel very achy all over until I start up again so its really essential I have an Omega supplement on hand. The purity of Omax 3 makes this a no brainier because who wants an omega 3 that 30% or more filler.

All Omega 3s are not equal as you can see from this photo of the freezer test. This test puts both Omax 3 and another fish oil into a freezer. the other fish oil gets very cloudy indicating fat, The Omax 3 stays clear.

I did a video review for you so you can see the difference in purity of the Omax 3 compared to the fish oil I had been taking and the difference is very clear even in the video.

I also have a video for you to watch from the company and some links for go to.

As part of this review I am able to hold a giveaway so one of my readers will be able to try Omax 3 for themselves. Please follow the raffle copters instructions.

here is the video review I did for this awesome product.

Here is the you Tube video for Omax 3 showing its many benefits and info you need to make an informed derision.

Please enter the giveaway through the raffle copter below. Omax3 is available at this link Omax3 website

This Scarlet Cord by Joan Wolf book review

I was so Happy I was selected to read This Scarlet Cord by Joan Wolf through NetGalley. I had been wanting to read this book when I first heard it was available. First I have to say I am a big Fan of Joan Wolf. she has the ability to really make us feel we are in the story and in this case the story of Rahab of the bible. Rahab was the brave young Canaanite woman who risked everything to help the Israelites by hanging a piece of scarlet cord from a window.

I loved this book it really brought to life a passage in the bible I always thought so interesting. I think anyone who loves historical christian fiction would love this story because it shows that through the grace of the Lord even a Canaanite woman can can find love and comfort and see her dreams come true.

If you are looking for a really outstanding represntation of a classical bible story I hope you get a chance to read This Scarlet Cord by Joan Wolf. I am so happy to have this in my library and add it to my shelf of Biblical women stories. You can find it on amazon here.

Faith and other Flat Tires by Andrea Palpant Dilley's

I was recently able to read the book Faith and other Flat Tires by Andrea Palpant Dilley's and received a free copy for my review.

Faith and other Flat Tires, is very personal Memoir regarding the crisis of faith Andrea experienced when she was younger. This is a really moving Memoir of how sometimes growing up surrounded by believers can be challenging.

I also experienced something very similar when I was younger, my family was Catholic and I became very disillusioned with the church and the people professing to love God all around me but showing very little of that in how they behaved with each other. Unlike Andrea who's parents were very devout christian missionaries, My family just screamed at each other daily. This caused me to run from all things about God and Christ but Like Andrea I also found my way back to his loving arms in adulthood.

Personally I think this book would be a helpful read not only for people who are having a crisis of faith but for those who have had loved one run from there faith and why that may be the case. This book will give you an incite into those of us who's faith went flat for one reason or another and how the Lord never leaves us alone in this but pursues us until we are back where we belong loving him and trusting him.

If you know anyone who has had a loved one stop believing in God maybe because of hardship or because of judgmental christian relatives, you may want to get them a copy of this book so they know they are totally not alone in this, and that its never to late to come back to a forgiving and Loving God.

Declaring my Personal Taste a tasters choice activity

I am a member of the Tasters Choice tasters community and they asked me to post about declaring my personal taste not only when it comes to coffee but also about other things I do and like

My favorite Tasters Choice is the original house blend, I like it with a ton of cream and sugar. sometimes Ill add some coffee syrup to it for a really nice treat.I love that its very convenient and easy to make so if I just want that one cup of coffee I am not wasting a whole pot of reg drip coffee.

some of the other stuff I like to do is of course , blogging and taking photos. I also love to make video reviews because I think they are more easy for people how have trouble reading a review on the computer screen as I have sometimes.

I love to read and do book reviews. I am a homemaker so I do the housekeeping and take of my husband who have been sick for 6 years.

for fun Ill play some computer games like the kind I get from bigfish . these are mostly investigative hidden object games and are a lot of fun. I like these because you can get out of them quickly and check you email. thanks for reading A member of @NescafeUSA Tasters”
