My Review on Johnsonville Grillers ( Cheddar Cheese and Bacon & Swiss Cheese & Mushroom )


I had a opportunity to sample +Johnsonville Grillers. I use the free coupon that received from +Crowdtap as well as $1.00 off coupon that I had from the a coupon insert. Due to the +Memorial Day Weekend 2015  Holiday. My local +ShopRite   had a promotion on these wonderful products.  I was hoping to try Steak House Onion, but do the high demand in my area.  I was able to purchase and sample Cheddar Cheese & Bacon as well as Swiss Cheese & Mushroom. 

This is how they are packaged ! At my local +ShopRite they were on sale for $3.99, But normal price was $4.99. We prepared them on the grill; everyone enjoyed them. They had a great taste.. I highly recommend you give them a try ! My family and I will be purchasing more and make it a staple for our home.  Big on taste and not on cost !!!

Hair Food Strawberry Ginger Root Clarifying Shampoo - 10.1 oz : It is a amazing product. I left it in my hair for a few minutes and it started to tingle. And it smells amazing as well..  You can find this great product at +Target . For only $9.99  #Hairfood 


 Australian Gold- Australian Gold SPF 30 Lotion  :  It smells like citrus just a faint scent  & not oily.  A must try this summer ! You can get this product for only $7.99 for 8 oz. I will using this brand from now on :) Find this product @ +Facebook .com/livethegoldlife   +Twitter @AUSGoldSPF  #LivetheGoldLife 


 NYC New York Color City Proof 24 HR Eye Shadow ( Tribeca Taupe Color) 

     Great eye shadow, with twist bottom. Goes on thick , but you can blend with your finger or sponge. When I put on myself, I made my eye's look green. But eye's are normally a greenish brownish color. I also paired this with off black eyeliner.  I would get this product again ! It is a great price of only $ 2.99.  Follow by :  +Facebook .com/NYCNewYorkColor   +Twitter  : #NYCNewYorkColor  #NYCCityProof 


 Sally Hansen Air Brushed Legs Medium Leg Make up : 
      This is the first time I have sampled this product.  I don't like it, as it is really dark. I am currently very pale. I would consider using this to maintain a mid summer tan. But I will try this again in the summer time. It went on during the first application very well. And I had very minimal color change to legs. During my second application it went down to my feet. And you could see difference in color.  Being that this a product I don't normally use. I did stop my testing at that point. As I mentioned I will try again during the summer time.  This is only my opinion, please feel free to try this product on you own. I welcome my fans and readers to please share any views you have about this product in this blog below !  There are 5 colors that offer that match any skin tone and cost $ 13.99 Follow on +Facebook .com/sallyhansen    +Twitter  :  @Sallyhansen #AirbrushPerfectlegs

Book Review: Rooted and Four Other Disturbing Stories... By Shane Hall

I recently read this book by Shane Hall! I was able to view it free.   By a great new up coming author. In this book there are a total of five short stories. While reading the first story it had me thinking about. What will happen next ? As I read each story I always find something about each one that made me think a little more about it.  The short stories are titled as follows:
  • Vivian's Video's
  •  How to Satisfy The Key Maker
  • John Adams Two,
  • A Friend In the Depths 
  •  Rooted
I really enjoyed reading these stories. I don't want to give to much information. But I really enjoyed how detailed they were. He has a great imagination  and takes you where the stories are. They are very interesting stories and it keeps you on your toes.

With each story, I had just wrote my thoughts but I'm not going to provide that exact information as I would really hope that you my readers take a moment to view this book and learn more about this author. Once story has me questioning things and what happen within the story, another you must be sure to follow guidelines , another story be weary of your travels, another story had me thinking weird, being more open minded as you never know what you will find.  

To all my book readers out there , please take some time to read this book. I really think you will enjoy as much as have. 

You can purchase this book on Amazon  for 0.99. It's a really great price ! Be sure to check it out !   It can be viewed on your Kindle and Kindle Unlimited on your phone : http://www.amazon.com/Rooted-Four-Other-Disturbing-Stories-ebook/dp/B00W2ZBC30/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

    I’m a member of the +Crowdtap Aveeno® rewards program, and Aveeno® sent me a samples of  AVEENO® SHEER HYDRATION DAILY  0.5 oz   & AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE LOTION   1 Fl oz  to review .  I couldn't wait to review these !!! 

 Aveeno  Daily Moisturizing Lotion: When I first put it on , it felt greasy to me, After I rubbed into my skin more it . But after a few minutes does seem to absorbs into your skin. There is a faint scent that I get from the lotion. But it is really great for dry skin.  And it hydrates it for  24 HOURS !!! 

NEW Aveeno Protect  & Hydrate :  It has a base like a suntan lotion. It has Broad Spectrum SPF 30.  There really isn't scent. My skin feels really soft and it is light as if it isn't on. It states that it helps with skin dehydration with nourishing oat. I think that this would be a great product to use during the Summer and Spring months !!!  

I think these products are great for anyone with dry skin or looking for a change of sunscreen. Be sure to check them at your local store. Here is Aveeno's website : http://www.aveeno.com/

My Stir Fry Dinner **A Must Try **

What you will need :
Stir Fry Meat - Beef  ( Pre cut I used )

Half onion - chopped 

Kikkoman Beef & Broccoli  - 2 Packets

Steamed Veggies or Fresh 

Dash Salt & Pepper

Adobo with Pepper 

Stir Fry Oil

Sesame Oil 

Wok  ( Seasoned ) 

Minute Rice 

Garlic Powder or Onion Powder 


Directions :

  1. Add Stir Fry Oil  to wok , let it warm up .  While the wok is warming  chop half onion into pieces. Set in a bowl and add some sesame oil to it and mix together.  
  2. Let the onions cook and get soft. 
  3. Take meat from store package  add to same bowl that you had the onions in and sprinkle some sesame oil on it. 
  4. Once the onions are done, add the stir fry beef. Have it all cook together and add adobo. Adobo it comes out fast so try not to add to much.*Also I noticed the meat had a lot of juice so I dumped the access*  Just add a little as you don't want it to over power your meal. 
  5. Once everything is browned , place into pie dish or bowl. Let it rest!!! 
  6. I had steamed veggies Shoprite Asian Mix) I should have probably steamed. But I took them out of the bag and added to my wok. * Note - If possible try to get fresh ** 
  7. Once I added them wok, I added sesame oil and adobo and dash of salt and pepper. 
  8. During any downtime you may have, be sure to have measure out your sauce (Kikkoman Beef & Broccoli ) follow directions on package and be sure to mix it up . 
  9. Once the veggies are cooked , add the meat and onions back into the mix. 
  10. Add your Kikkoman Sauce ; I let it cook a little longer. You don't want your sauce to cook off or get to absorbed into your meat and veggies. 
  11. Once everything has cooked, you can now start your rice. 
  12. Minute Rice is very easy and yet I still from time to time mess it up !!!  
  13. Boil 4 cups of water with salt ( Garlic or Onion ) butter as directed on box. 
  14. Once that comes to boil add your rice like normal and mix.
  15. When I mess up my rice example ( water left behind but the top is cooked). I turn on the burner on high and mix it around. But somehow it makes a sticky rice ...  Not only with have extra flavor to your meal but you can change powder. So many options !! Please feel free to contact me with any questions !! 

To my readers :  Please feel to share your any stir fry ideas you have tried or wanted to TRY !!!
