June Giveaway with My So Called Chaos

Yay! It’s time for the huge June group giveaway, and this time it’s all about Phoneography! What’s phoneography? Well it’s photography you take with your phone! Get it? Phone + photography = phoneography. I don’t know who coined the term, but it makes sense and there are even some great Instagram hashtags related to it. While I always recommend investing in a DSLR, I know what it’s like to not be able to afford one, and your photography doesn’t have to suffer just because you can’t afford a huge investment right now. If you are a blogger, shop owner, Instgrammer, or just someone who wants to take better photos with your phone-there are things you can use to improve-and I (along with some other fabulous bloggers and creatives) joined Angie from My So-Called Chaos to bring one lucky winner a big pack of them!

Neocell Giveaway

 

I am a part of this giveaway by Lisa at Coffee, Cats & Retail. Lisa is in charge of giving the prize to the winner.

 It wouldn’t be summer without having the latest and best beauty and health products on our radar.

I believe that how we look and feel depends mainly on our lifestyle, such as our diet, activity level, stress levels, all play a significant role.  Supplementing our diet can also be a factor in contributing to a healthy lifestyle, and this is because it’s really difficult to receive needed nutrients just from the foods we eat.    For many of us looking for that needed edge, Neocell has proven to be a valuable addition to a healthy regime.

Neocell’s award winning products aid with everything from healthy skin, nails, hair, along with support for joints and eyes, basically all things associated with the effects of aging.  Some of my favorite  products include the Biotin Bursts, Resveratrol, Glow Matrix and Pomegranate From The Seed.  Everything in their vegetarian line basically.  Some benefits that I see are improved skin tone, thicker hair and nails along with more energy.   More than enough to keep me coming back. Check out my recent review of Glow Matrix.

Birthday Strawberry Shortcake

    Birthday Strawberry Shortcake   I am not a big sweets fan , but it was recently my birthday. That meant I needed a birthday cake.My wife is not a cook and doesn’t pretend it be one.She used a store bought angel food cake and whipped up some homemade whipped cream.It is super easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of your time.Strawberries are in season so are cheap and plentiful.She cut them up and tossed in a little-granulated sugar and let it sit until juices were in the bottom and the sugar was broken down.This is one the children can easily help make and if you are not a cook then this one is for you! You can impress the ones you love with your new “no bake” dessert skills.
