Hot Flairs Accessory Auctions came about when she was so busy working she had no time to shop, alot of people have busy schedules, so the social commerce sales on Sunaday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, at 9PM EST made sense. Shopping is so simple, when you want to buy an item, just leave the comment "SOLD" underneath the item post in the comments section.
Hot Flairs Accessory Auctions has something for everyone. They cater to all the fashion flairs of people, as long as it's hot we got it!

This is something I have wanted to Make Dexter for about 18 months now! Jeez horrible mom over here. I knew when I had Max I was going to have him in the carrier a lot so I thought hey if I make Dex one he won’t feel left out! right? He can carry his dog in it. Well yeah it would have been nice if I had done it a year or so ago. But I finally got around to it no. I searched and searched online and could never find a tutorial. So I made my own!
This is a moderate to difficult thing to make but if you are a new seamstress don’t let that discourage you, you may just want to start with some material you don’t mind if it gets ruined and accept that as your trial run. Also this takes about 1.5 hours but is worth the time!

A little bit about Total nutrition "Total Nurtirion is rich in antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, nutirents, vitamins, and phytonutrient - all of which are required to take your body from "surviving" to "vibrant". Simply stated, with Total Nutrition, you will transend "normal nutrition". Total Nutrition is a delicious, easy-prep supplement that contains a diverse blend of premium quality superfood ingredients that have been sourced from across the globe. This cutting-edge global blend of superfoods makes Total Nutrition extremely dense in nutrients, vitamins and minerals. In fact, just one tablespoon is enough to provide the average American with an entire day's worth of nutrients! Total Nutrition is the first step toward changing your life and your health. You'll feel revitalized in a way that you've only dreamed about! Total Nutrition is comprised of: Barley Grass, Wheat Grass, Spirulina, Spinach, Alfalfa Leaf, Kelp, Dulse Leaf, Barley Grass Juice, Orange Peel, Beet Root, Dandelion Leaf, Lemon Peel, Gingko Leaf, Wheat Grass Juice, Maca Root, Cacao, Ashwagandha, Sacha Inchi, Manuka Honey, Bee Pollen, Reishi Mushroom, Blueberry, Black Currant, Wild Bilberry, Wild Lingonberry, Aronia, Pomegranate, Concord Grape, Red Raspberry, Sour Cherry, Wild Elderberry, Wild Cranberry, Black Raspberry, Goji Berries and Schiznadra Berries. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Adminstration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."
Total nutrition is made to mix in with a shake, water, or juice. It is made out of herbs to provide an entire days worth of nutrients. I was really excited to try it because one of my husbands co-workers use it and swears by it! Plus I have been eating a lot healthier lately and I love learning about new foods and products that naturally give you energy.
When I got it I was a little disappointed because I only received one sample, and its a little hard to give a fair judgment on just one drink. The day I got it I was running errands and when I got hungry I didn't want to stop at a fast food place and really didn't know what to do about lunch. So since I had a bottle of water in the car I thought oh hey Ill just drink this! then I will have energy and feel boosted to go on with my day! So I mixed it in with my water and shook it for 3 minutes till I could no longer see things floating around and it looked like it was mixed well. Well being a green drink I was really unsure about it so I handed it to my husband and asked him to try it first. He took a big drink and said it just tasted like drinking grass! So I tried it. It wasn't bad tasting, but the gross bits floating around gagged me. I couldn't drink it due to the floating stuff. So I have no idea how it made me feel and I can't really recommend it. All I can say is I would try it again in a shake or juice or smoothie. Not in my water!
It has a lot of benefits and that is why I would try it again, I think with the right other flavors it would have tasted a lot better. Have you tried total nutrition? What is your experience?I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

We seem to be staying at more and more hotels lately. Some I could stay in for weeks and others I immediately regret my decision to go on vacation. Last month we stayed in a hotel with a room so humid I felt like I was back in South GA in July again. One hotel I feel like I can always know what I am booking is Town Place suites by Marriott. They are always clean, always a friendly staff and their breakfast is always about the same.

There are very few kids cds that I enjoy, and even less lullaby cds. In fact I think there are two. This is one of them.
When I got the chance to review this CD my first thought was "Do I know any Christian rock songs?!" Turns out I know all of them! I really didn't think I would know any, although I am Christian I didn't think I listened to Christian rock. I love hearing these songs in a new way. It makes it easy to listen to because I know the words to the songs. Plus the instrumentals are pretty.
When I got the CD it was actually pretty close to bed time so I put it in our cd player and turned it on for the kids. I was really surprised when D asked to be put to bed! We listened to about 5 songs and he got very sleepy and went to be easily. They usually go to sleep pretty easily but never ask to go to bed! I was thoroughly impressed. This is my new go to CD when I want to get them sleepy. It usually works!
I think Jammy Jams is a great idea and would suggest it as a baby shower gift or just for a fun CD to buy!

We recently have started a “home school preschool” with Dexter, he is three and to young for public pre-k and I am not ready to have him away from me yet! So we started with his ABC’s first. First I started by having him do little activities and flash cards every day. We did one letter at a time and within about two months he had gotten all his letters! I was really surprised but I noticed he wasn't retaining them. He would know them for a day or two but then when reviewed them I could tell he wasn't to sure of them.

|How my kids act in public.|
But there are these rare moments when they behave. Usually no one but me sees them and often I feel as if I am hallucinating. The other day though a phenomenon happened. After running 3 errands with both boys which were even boring for me I knew we had to run into the bank to close an account. I almost didn't do it. I thought "gosh this is about to be the worst trip in the world they are going to be holly terrors!!" But I knew it had to be done. So I cringed as I pulled into the parking spot and got the boys out.
It may seem silly but just those two compliments have made me feel like maybe I am getting my act together maybe I am finally starting to be a good mom again. Maybe I can handle my children.
So if you are ever out and you think a nice thought about someone maybe you should say it out loud. You never know how much they need to hear those words. I know I often need them and I am sure so do others.

One thing they did have that I loved were the Corset Dresses! I thought they were all so cute! They were more than $30 though so I didn't get a chance to review one of them but I may have to go back later and buy one. Although I have no idea when I would have a use for one all I know is I want one.
So when I ordered my Corset top I was a little disappointed that I had to go up in sizes. Normally this wouldn't bother me but I have been working hard to lose all the baby weight and I am finally getting somewhere! So I normally wear a size M but had to go up to an XL! It was a little upsetting but I got over it. However when my corset top arrived it was a 2-3XL. Which at first I thought okay so now the sizes are even more off?! but turns out they just sent me the wrong size. The return process is easy but to be honest I probably will never return it because I am to lazy and forgetful!
This is the corset I received:
- Corset has zipper on the side, underwire cup support, and laces in the back for a perfect fit.
- 12 light-weight bones through-out
- Corset finished in white satin
- Fully adjustable criss cross ribbon lace back
- Corset is 15' in length
- Cut shorter at the back for added comfort
The corsets from Corset Chick, come with a matching thong, I received a solid black one however, I'm really not at all impressed with the thong. It's basically a large piece triangle shape with a little elastic for the g string, and feels like cheap material.
Corset Chicks has sizes for everyone. You can find a corset to fit anywhere from a size Small (2-4) to a 6X (18-20).

The dryer balls cut down on the amount of time your clothes stay in the dryer. The first time I used them my clothes actually stayed in their longer! I was a little upset. My husband figured out later that it was because my dryer senses weight and since the weight of the balls is not changing the timer kept resetting! After figuring that out we started doing our own cycle by choosing the heat amount and time amount. My drying time has cut down by about 10-15 minutes. I also love how much money this is going to save me, Woolzies last for 1000's of loads. So to get 1,000 dryer sheets I would have to spend about $54. So not a ton of savings there but every little bit counts!
One thing I don't like is that I have to put essential oils on the balls after I dry my clothes in order for them to smell nice and not just clean. I don't really like adding any more steps to doing laundry! But if you don't care about pretty smelling laundry I am sure this won't bother you!
Each box contain six Woolzies for use in your dryer and is available for purchase for the MSRP of $34.95 with free shipping in the United States.
So go visit Woolzies to learn more about these awesome dryer balls or to purchase this product now.

The Baby Comfy Nose uses your own suction to remove mucus. Put a tissue inside the aspirator body, the tip goes in baby's nose, and suck. The tip is safer by design than a bulb syringe and won't go in too deep. It comes in 3 colors and with a mesh pouch to keep everything together when it goes in the dishwasher. It's safe and sanitary, no worries!
My 1-year-old laughs when getting his snot sucked out, and my 3-year-old can use the Baby Comfy Nose aspirator all by himself!
The only thing I don't care for about the comfy nose is there is no valve to protect me from germs and snot getting sucked into my mouth. I feel like the tube is hard to get really clean and I worry that I am taking a risk in getting myself sick while I suck out my kids nose.

When we got married we bought a set of pans for a decent price and thought they would be "good enough" to last us maybe 5-10 years. Well it defiantly was a lot sooner than that they all started peeling and we noticed we needed new pans. We would buy a pan here and there slowly collecting a bunch of pans that were no good. This year for Christmas all my husband wanted was a good pan. STRANGE I know! So I went out and bought him a $40 pan.. we both hate it. Everything we cook on it sticks, its hard to clean, burns all our food. Waste of money. So when my friend told me about a new pan she had been using I was excited. It was the Ozeri green pan! I was excited, she said it worked amazing and cleaned easily.
Well then shortly after that I was asked to review one, fate right??
