@TheSnugg iPhone 5 Case Review


I was recently contact by Snugg asking me if I would like to review one of their products. They have many cases to choose from such as iPhone, iPad and even Galaxy cases.  I LOVE my iPhone 5 so it was a logical choice for me to review an iPhone 5 case.

I am one of those crazy ones who loves to match their case with their purse. So, having more than one case (or purse) is definitely ok with me!

I love bright colors that pop, especially neons! I was lucky enough to choose a hot pink case!
I got it in the mail, looked at it and without even using it fell in love.

The case itself is really sturdy and "Snugg". It has a non-slip grip and it is perfect for those of us that are ALWAYS on our phones. I love it because it is ultra thin and it fits anywhere I need it to.

You can buy any of these great cases directly from the Snugg website or from Amazon.com.








I have been using this case since I received it in the mail and I just love it. I would give it a 5 out of 5 for the vibrant color, durability, non slip grip and just over all coolness.

If you are looking for a good, sturdy, cool case go to the Snugg.

Justice YOYO Initial Lip Gloss Review and Giveaway


If you have a little girl in your life than you know "how cool" shopping at Justice is. Since I have four daughters I have been going to Justice since I can't remember when. They always have the latest and trendiest things for my daughters.

I was given the opportunity to try out their Initial Lip Gloss that are in stores now. I picked out the initial and gave it to my 10 year old daughter to try. She LOVED the lip gloss. She told me it felt really soft on her lips and she was really happy with the way it smelled. She loved it so much she hung it on her back pack so she could carry it around to school.



These YOYOs are very special as they feature an initial available in 17 different letters with a mixture of Bling and Glitter on the front face of the retractable reel!! These gorgeous glosses are also available with the peace sign icon on the front.

Not only was I lucky enough to review the lip gloss, but they also are allowing me to give one away with the initial of your choice or a peace sign!!

Here is all you have to do:

  a Rafflecopter giveaway


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free from YoYo Lip Gloss. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Count Down To The Big 4-0



In a little over a month I will turn the big 40 (gasp). I could lie and say I am ok with this, but I am really not. I have become obsessed with it. I don't remember being so upset at 30. I am not even sure what the big deal is. 

I guess I am just upset with myself because I am not where I want to be with my weight (thanks pre- menopause), my career or lack there of and my life in general. I would like to think I have many more years ahead of me to attain all these things, but for some reason 40 has become a big deadline for me. 



So, I will work out till my buns fall off, keep looking for a job and try to achieve all my goals before the big date. Meanwhile, I think I am going to live like 40 is the new 20!  How will you deal with the big 40?

It Works Body Wraps Review #Itworks #itworksglobal


A few months back a friend of mine had an Body Wrap party from a company called It Works
I had never heard of such a thing. I assumed it was only for movie stars or the wealthy. Boy, was I wrong!

An Independent Distributor, Amy, came out to my girl friends and helped her throw a party. It turns out the products are not for movie stars or the rich. It is for me and you! The body wrap itself it just the coolest thing. You can tone, tighten and firm any area under your neck for in a little as 45 minutes! This sounds too good to be true, so I tried it for myself. 




I had Amy wrap my stomach for 45 mins and I also tried a packet of their Greens. It has 8 veggies in it and gives you some nice natural energy. I was in love with the Greens. I could feel more energy within the hour. 




There are so many products this company offers from vitamins to facial masks, skin tightening, detox, weight loss and so much more. I have to admit I wanted to buy one of everything. 





After 45 mins of wearing the wrap I had definitely seen a difference in my stomach. The best part is the wrap works even after it is off for up to 72 hours. I ended up loosing 2 inches around my stomach. I new this was a product I wanted in my life. I ordered more wraps and became a Loyal Customer, which allowed me to spend less and get more products. 





So, after talking more to Amy I realized I too could be an Independent Distributor. What a perfect opportunity to be able to stay home with my daughters and still make some money. It is definitely a product I believe in so I was all ready to become a distributor. I have been doing it ever since that party and I love it!



Being able to meet all kinds of different people and working with a group that is so supportive is just the icing on the cake. I LOVE changing people's lives and helping them love the way they look. 

Please visit my website at: lydiabrunowraps.myitworks.com and find out more. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at lydbruno@gmail.com. I would be happy to help you answer any questions you might have or help you to sign up and be a distributor for this fantastic company of great products. 

We are running a limited time offer to join our family for only $99. Earn extra spending money, get out of debt, meet great people, work your own hours and work from home! Go HERE to learn how.

Yo Gabba Gabba! LIVE! Get the Sillies Out! #yogabbagabba



Yo Gabba Gabba! LIVE! Get the Sillies Out!

Last week, my husband and I received tickets to see Yo Gabba Gabba! LIVE! Get the Sillies Out! at the Akoo Theater in Rosemont, Illinois. Our two youngest daughters absolutely had a blast, and my husband I both agreed that it was one of the best kids’ concerts we’ve attended in recent years.







If you’re a fan of the show -- as we are in my house -- then you’ll know what to except if you plan on attending the concert when it comes to your neck of the woods. Like the television show it’s predicated on, Get the Sillies Out! is highly energetic, bright and bold, and always fun. In fact, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the parents who attended with us had just as much at the concert as our kids!







The Akoo Theater is a nice setup because there really isn’t a bad seat in the house, but getting as close to the stage as possible is an even better way to enjoy the show, especially if you’re a fan of bubbles, exploding streamers, and confetti…lots and lots of confetti.







The show is roughly 90 minutes long, with a short intermission, which you’ll need use to recuperate from the high intensity of the first part of the show, especially if you join in with your kids who will no doubt be dancing in the isles to songs like “There’s a Party in my Tummy,” “I Love Bugs,” and, of course, “Biz’s Beat of the Day.” Yep, that’s right! Biz Markie makes an appearance during the show, much to the delight of the audience, who nearly brought the house down when he took to the stage.







We had so much fun that we can’t wait to see the next Yo Gabba Gabba! show. To see if there are any upcoming performances in your area, visit www.yogabbagabbalive.com/events, and don’t forget to bring your kids!

How very fast the time goes. Today is the birthday of my first born. She is a teenager! OMG! I can't believe we have a teenager in the house! I am so blessed to have such wonderful children and even more blessed to have my eldest grow up to be such a wonderful young woman. She is such a great example to her younger sisters. I couldn't be any more proud of her.
 
 
 
 
I love you to pieces, baby. Happy 13th Birthday.
