TheraBreath Multi Symptom Pro-Biotics *review and giveaway*

Back in April I reviewed several TheraBreath products and loved them. When I got an email asking if I'd like to review TheraBreath Multi Symptom Pro-biotics I jumped on it. I'm always looking for ways to make myself healthier and had been hearing about pro-biotics so I looked it up-

Probiotics are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) that are similar to beneficial microorganisms found in the human gut. They are also called "friendly bacteria" or "good bacteria." 

OK I admit I don't really know what all that means but it's suppose to be good for you so I will try it!

TheraBreath Multi Symptom Oral Care Probiotic is part of a new generation of probiotics that are very targeted in terms of their benefits. The BLIS probiotic strains used in this new TheraBreath product were discovered to be naturally occurring in the oral cavities of a very small percentage of children who showed a natural resistance to cavities, sore throats, ear aches and bad breath. BLIS strains selectively target hostile bacteria responsible for various oral cavity related illnesses while allowing beneficial oral flora to remain intact. This prevents compromising your body's natural immunity to disease, which can sometimes happen after antibiotic treatments.

How To Use This Product
Brush Teeth, tongue, and inside cheeks with TheraBreath Toothpaste (included) to prepare for treatment. Mix one stick pack with about two mouthfuls (2oz.) of water until fully dissolved. Rinse mouth thoroughly for 1 minute with one mouthful. Spit. Gargle for 30 seconds with next mouthful. Spit. If additional solution remains, rinse until gone. You will learn to estimate more precisely as you use the treatment. Use treatment TWICE (morning and night) on DAY 1, ONCE (each morning) on DAYS 2-6, and TWICE (morning and night) on DAY 7.

My Thoughts

I have a hard time trying new stuff that I will taste. I'm always scared it's going to be awful. BUT I was pleasantly surprised with this because it was a nice taste. 
Also I loved how you just can't mess taking it up! It has all the instructions on the box where the tubes are inserted.
Another great thing about it is the price, on;y $28 So if your interested you should go to the TheraBreath site and check this product out!


One Reader will win a box of TheraBreath Mouth Wetting Lozenges! 100 Count!

I LOVE these lozenges! My mouth stays dry from the meds I have to take and they help so very much. They are also very good for bad breath, you know when your out and you have the burger with yummy onions!

Easter's Lilly by Judy Serrano *book review*

  • Paperback: 296 pages
  • Publisher: Black Rose Writing (December 16, 2010)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1935605909
  • ISBN-13: 978-1935605904

It was Easter Sunday; the day Lilly’s life went from safe and comfortable to dangerously unfamiliar. Her transformation takes her from a small town girl having an affair with a low ranked gangster in the Montiago crime syndicate, to a woman of grace and fortitude married to the head of the organization.
Lilly tells the story of her life — and the lives of her children — with childlike innocence, yet she’s desperate for security and companionship. The hint of forbidden love and betrayal that ultimately puts brother against brother adds to the suspense and intrigue. The syndicate engulfs the Montiago family as they turn each other inside out over the love of a woman. Easter’s Lilly is an inspired journey from the idyllic to the darker side of self-discovery. Read as the over-privileged brothers embark on their journey that twists and turns down the road of unbridled passion in the first book of the series.

My Thoughts
I read this in 2 nights! It would have been one but meds knocked me out. The story is about a young girl thinking she's in love with a guy that her family says is all wrong for her. In a roundabout way she gets caught up with the Montiago family and boy is her life caught up in a whirlwind! She finds out people are not who she thinks and some are less than what she thought. I'm not going to say much more because I don't want to give anything away. 
I really enjoyed this book. It's a love story with a mobster family twist and it moves fast enough to keep you glued to the pages. I enjoy the way Judy Serrano tells a story.

There was only one thing I DID NOT like and that was having to wait for part 2!!! I'm anxiously waiting to find out what happens the next Easter Sunday!

You can learn more about Judy's book on her web page . It is also available at
, (Both in paperback and Kindle) 
While your checking out the book go by and check out the author's blog too!

4 hours later....

I decided Friday night to make me a summer purse. I wanted to use stuff I had available and had a vintage sheet I got at a yard sale and a pretty flowery vintage pillowcase a lady I know had given me. The inside of the purse is from fabric another lady gave me.

One side has the vintage pink corduroy button which also fastens it and the other side has 3 baby rolled roses. It has 2 pocket on the inside (because I HATE lots of pockets on the inside...all those compartments confuse me and I forget where I put stuff) the outside has 3 pockets on each side.

I LOVE it! Its not small and its not huge and it is very summery.
