All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. This post contains an affiliate link. Last year my husband was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He was prescribed insulin and oral medication as well. As those started doing their work, he started feeling a lot of pain that the high level of sugars in his body had previously masked. Some was due to neuropathy caused by the diabetes, but he was having lot of pain in his shoulder, arm, and wrist. He went through a battery of tests and it was determined that he also has arthritis. Unfortunately, my husband is a large guy and has an extremely high tolerance to pain medications, but he was in desperate need of pain relief. He tried several types of pain relief pills and muscle relaxers without much help. Doctors are hesitant to give people stronger options due to the … [Read more...]

A Big Attitude Active Wear Review – Look the Part

With muscle issues, exercising has become a bit difficult lately. I do hope to get back on track as soon as I'm able. That being said, this summer and up until recently I was doing great at working out. I started the Couch 2 5k program and made my way through to week 6. I was also doing Zumba a couple times a week as well as body weight strength training. I was feeling good! With the help of A Big Attitude Active Wear, I was looking good too. I don't know about you, but workout clothes and active wear is a lot like a superhero costume. I put these items on and I feel pumped and ready to tackle my workout. I recently reviewed a few active wear items including the Black Side Vent Logo Capri Pants in black, Logo Scoop Neck Sports Bra in black, and their Baseball Shirt in black and purple. I put the whole outfit on and went for a jog and felt fabulous! The capri pants are extremely comfortable and form fitting, but not too tight so as to be confused with leggings. The bottom … [Read more...]

Lady Anti-Monkey Butt Powder Review

I usually stick to jeans, but it's been so hot lately that shorts have been my go-to bottom of choice. I have pretty sensitive skin and when it's sweaty or rubs together (hello thighs, I'm talking to you) it tends to get chafed and itchy. Enter Lady Anti-Monkey Butt Powder. Isn't that the best name? It's definitely one that you remember.   It's a combination of cornstarch, calamine, and a patented micro particle polymer (whatever that is). It's not overly scented, but has a light and pleasant smell. It feels smooth to the touch and glides on the skin. It definitely helps keep my thighs from rubbing together and causing irritation. It's been in the 90s or above almost everyday, so just letting the dogs out is enough to get me sticky.  The powder absorbs sweat and keeps my skin from chafing. It's a plus when you're exercising or just walking around.  The only issue I have with this type of powder is that I haven't figured out how to use it without making a mess. I end up with … [Read more...]

Crest & Oral-B Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Review

Here's some honesty for you. My teeth are not great. I didn't take good care of them when I was younger and I'm paying for it now. I've had several broken teeth removed and have a chipped tooth in the front that prevents me from smiling with my mouth open. I need a lot of work done, but unfortunately it's extremely expensive and not in my budget at this time. I've since taken a much more proactive approach to my oral hygiene and there is a new line from Crest & Oral-B which helps me accomplish this. It includes Crest Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Toothpaste, Crest Pro-Health Clinical Rinse, Oral-B Pro-Health Clinical Pro-Flex Toothbrush, and Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss. When the products are used together they protect against plaque, cavities, gingivitis, sensitivity, tartar, stains, and bad breath. The toothpaste I reviewed has a light minty flavor, not overly flavored like some other toothpastes I've tried. It has a grit to it which I like because … [Read more...]

Reebok InShape Watch Review – “Dani Says”

I was super excited when I learned I would be getting the Reebok InShape Watch for review. It keeps track of steps, calories burned, distance and more. While I was anxiously waiting for it to arrive in the mail, I had my birthday and got completely spoiled. I got the Nike band and shoes that go with it. I'll be posting a review of the Nike band shortly. So what was I to do with both? I had the fabulous idea of letting my sister Dani try the Reebok InShape watch. I hounded her for a few weeks to get the review done. Hey, she has a busy life! But she's had time to review it and here are her thoughts. Hey there! Dani here. My sister neglected to mention the fact that I was sick when I received the watch therefore unable to exercise or conduct a proper review. So there. (insert sticking tongue out face here) Anyway, when I first opened the package it came in, I was outside and accidentally dropped it on the cement. Initially, I thought: "Crap! I broke it already!"  I then picked it … [Read more...]
