Bra Fitting Secrets

 A bra should feel comfortable, no digging, no slipping straps. The right bra should make your clothes and bust look great. If you have never been fitted for a bra then you might be wearing the wrong size and not even know it. Here are some "Bra Fitting Secrets" from HerRoom.

Bodycology Review


If you are a regular here at GGG then you know that I am a smell person. I love things that smell good! I tend to smell everything, even if it's not supposed to smell. I am weird like that. If you are looking for some alluring scents to add to  your beauty regime but don't want to spend a lot of money then Bodycology is the way to go. Bodycology has Fragrance Mists, Body Wash and Moisturizer in a variety of scent collections. Whether you are looking for something sweet, something floral or something earthy.

I really enjoy their Fragrance Mists. I am currently using Sweet Seduction. I spray them all over my body when I get out of the shower. They are very nice to use when you want something subtle and not overwhelmingly perfume-y. Their Body Creams are also very rich and moisturizing and the scent lingers on your skin a really long time. Just the other day I had someone ask me what I was wearing and tell me I smelled good. I had on Bodycology's Sweet Seduction Body Cream, a succulent blend of fresh petals and apple with both floral and fruity undertones ,top notes of Juicy Orange, Crisp Apple, Melon Water, and Red Plum open this intriguing scent, leading with mid notes of Red Currant, Muguet Petals, Rose, and Sweet Freesia, ending with dry notes of Creamy Sandalwood, and Sheer Musk.



I was also sent a Fragrance Mist and Body Cream from the Instant Attraction Collection.


Hints of dark orchid and sparkling pear. Starting off with top notes of Fresh Ozone, Watery Pear, and Pink Peppercorn leading into the heart notes of Romantic Rose, and Sensual Ylang, and ending with the overall base notes of White Amber, Blonde Woods, and Addictive Musk.

Bodycology is constantly coming out with new fragrances to replace old ones. Check out what is currently available. I need to get Toasted Sugar and Pretty in Paris! You can purchase Bodycology products at your local Walmart store. Print a $1.00 off coupon here for next purchase.

Green Virgin Soap Nut's Laundry Detergent Review


Green Virgin Products is a family-owned business created in 2009 to fulfill a specific need in the marketplace. Ken Marion, founder, lost his brother to cancer, and is a cancer survivor himself.  These experiences were the foundation of the Marion family’s vision—to provide high quality, non-toxic, eco-friendly products that actually work, and can save money compared to the toxic polluting products.


I was given the opportunity to review Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts Liquid. This all natural laundry detergent is derived the from the Chinese Soap Berry Tree. This tree produces berries that contain saponin, a natural soap that is safe for people and the environment. I was eager to try this product because both my husband and daughter have sensitive skin and I have to wash their clothes in dye and fragrance free detergents. You can find commercial brand detergents that are free of these things but sometimes I wonder what other toxic chemicals are hiding in the bottle. Soap Nuts Liquid contains 3 ingredients!

This laundry liquid works in HE washing machines and only takes 2 to 3 pumps to get your clothes clean. An 8oz. bottle will actually get 120 loads of laundry clean! At the sale price of $18.95 that's only .15 cents per wash! ( I did the math.)

Now the real question, does it work? It sure does! Soap Nuts Liquid gets your clothes clean and soft, even without fabric softener. I wish this stuff naturally smelled like berries that would make it the best laundry detergent ever. Unfortunately your clothes are left with no scent, but then again I am used to this because of my family's sensitive skin concerns. The one negative thing I will say about Soap Nuts Liquid is it is super sticky, so try not to spill any of it. ( Yes, I spilled some.)

Green Virgin Products also sells bags of Soap Nuts. These are actually the whole berry that has not been broken down into a liquid. They are 100% natural! You stick them in a drawstring bag add them to your wash and let the magic of Saponin clean your clothes.

If you are not familiar with Green Virgin Products then go check them out online. You can also like them on Facebook.

Scentsy Fall Review


Can you believe the first day of fall is only 9 days away?! As you can see I am counting down the days to cooler weather, falling leaves and Holidays with family. I have mentioned this in the past but I am a "smell" person. Meaning I love things that smell good. That's the reason I love Scentsy products and decided to become a Scentsy consultant. I believe in their products and they smell sooo good! I am so excited that Scentsy fall scents are out and ready to be enjoyed.


Here is a list of Scentsy's 2014 Fall/ Winter scents. I have smelled all of them and let me tell you there are some yummy ones. My favorites are Frosted Ginger Cookie, Sno-Leil and Winter Pine. Frosted Ginger Cookie smells like one of those delicious cookies everyone starts baking come fall. Sno-Leil smells clean and sweet, it reminds me of snow fall and a hot cup of cocoa with lots of marshmallows. Winter Pine is one scent I will be burning come Christmas. Growing up we always had a live Christmas tree every year but a couple of years ago we decided to purchase an artificial tree, sigh. Winter Pine gives you that fresh pine tree scent without all the pine needle mess.

Scentsy also some cute fall warmers available.


 
The Autumn Glow Shade is really pretty and the Scarecrow is cute and festive. Looking for something a little more whimsical and a touch spooky for Halloween? Check out these Halloween warmers!
 
This Bonehead is my favorite, I would probably use this one all year long.
 
This Itsy Bitsy element warmer is too cute and the perfect warmer if you are looking for something that does not light up.
 
Go check out Scentsy's fall catalog, it is filled with some new scents and some old favorites. If you are not familiar with Scentsy go see everything they have to offer. Scentsy is more then just warmers and wax bars, they also have other products to fill your space with lovely scents as well as laundry and bath and body products. Visit my page to purchase your Scentsy needs.
