Review: Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil

Taken from Tropical Traditions site:

How is This Oil Used?

Virgin Coconut Oil is a food, and is one of the best cooking oils you can use. It has been a staple cooking oil for thousands of years in tropical climates. As a cooking oil, its chemical structure is kept in tact and therefore is resistant to mutations of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cooking temperatures, unlike most vegetable oils. Research shows that the medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil boosts the body’s metabolism, raises body temperatures, and helps provide greater energy which can lead to weight loss. For hundreds of tasty recipes from people who use coconut oil, visit Virgin Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, a nutrient that supports the body’s immune system. Lauric acid is also found in human mother’s milk.  Dr. Mary Enig suggests the average adult include about 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil per day in their diet to take in an equivalent amount of lauric acid that a nursing infant would receive from breast milk.

I really can't wait to use my Coconut oil, I have found a lot of good recipes on I am just dying to try out. So look for a follow up review after I really get to use my oil for my Thanksgiving dinner. I will be sure to post pictures and everything of what I make.

Review & Giveaway: I Am A Woman Of God Shirt

Taken from I Am A Woman Of God site:
I am a Woman of God aims to remind christian women their value in God. The term “I am a Woman of God’ is a concept derived from one of the many passages of the bible, which are pertinent to the virtuous woman. The verse Job 33:4 states, “The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” The movement wants women to realize that God abides in them. That the Lord has made a mark on their lives.  I am a woman of God is a simple and catchy phrase that can mean a whole lot of different things to each individual. For a mother, this statement can mean offering oneself to be in the full service of her husband and children in the name of God. For a teenager, it can mean keeping her chastity until the time of her marriage to be clean in the eyes of God. The simple statement “I am Woman of God” can be a motivational phrase as well as a reminder of who we are as a Woman and what we can do in the Servitude of God.
"I am a Woman of God" shirt fit me just right as you can see to the left. The shirt was very soft when I open my package. They are changing lives one shirt at a time with their foundation.

Review: Bondi Band

Taken from Bondi Band
The Idea
The simple premise of Bondi Bands is to offer comfy, colorful, and creative headbands to fit every lifestyle and personality. 
By using stretchy and breathable material, we allow Bondi Bands to fit virtually every head size comfortably and fashionably. 
Our buyers constantly search for the newest and trendiest fabric designs and complement them with traditional craftsmanship to bring our customers the best product available on the market.
The Truth
Bondi bands are a very colorful way to look stylish as you hold your hair back for anything you day may bring you. If you are running, play tennis, or any type of sports, they work great for keeping you hair out of your eyes.  If you look to the left you will see the two Bondi Bands that I received. They are very comfortable to wear and fit very well. I wore my all day and I could not tell I had it on, it fit so well to my head. The bands are one size fit all. 
Bondi Bands have been seen on 

Wrestlemania, where Snookie from Jersey Shore sported her's in her match against Beth.


The answer is, there is no proper way to wear a Bondi Band. Some people wear them rolled, others fold them in half, but most wear them wide open. Try different styles for yourself and see what you like the best.

Traditional Method:

1. Put headband on and pull out hair from back

2. Pull up from top of fabric, until above eyebrows and over ears

3. Fold back of headband under, and leave the front FLAT

4. Relax and look cool caring for your Bondi Band


Fashion Light Wicking Material: Hand Wash/ Hang Dry
Heavy Wicking Material: Washing machine, Cold water/with like colors or by itself for first wash. Dryer.
No fabric softner for all products.

When I open my package from Hank's, as I was pulling the shirt I was very amazed at how soft the shirt was. I have brought lots of new clothes for my four year old son but this was by far the softest shirt I had ever felt that was band new. I loved the design on the front of the shirt, as did my little boy. As soon as he seen the shirt he said "Mommy, can I put it one". So I told him that he could put it on so I could take a photo for my blog. He was very happy and did not want to take the shirt. The t-shirt fit him very well and he looks great in it.
