I had a opportunity to evaluate the New! Yoga Mom Grocery Bag - Lime from LTDchix.com.

Now to the giveaway!! I had an opportunity to evaluate the New! Yoga Mom Grocery Bag - Lime pictured below. My initial attraction to the Yoga Mom Grocery bag was it color. By the way this bag comes in 3 additional colors: Royal Blue, Tan, and White.


I took my stylish bag through rigorous testing and it passed with flying colors. The bag was very sturdy. I placed 1 gallon of milk in it and it held the milk in place, I was impressed! The milk wasn't sliding around. Then I placed (at different times) an encyclopedia, food, clothing, and shoes in the bag, and I was amazed how well everything remained in tact and in placed.

Another good thing about the
Yoga Mom Grocery Bags is that they are 100% recyclable, eco-friendly, holds up to 40 lbs., feels like soft cloth, wider handles and easy on the hands, and they are washable! The bag also has a removable black base at the bottom of the bag. I finally found a bag that can truly hold pretty much everything that fits in it! Woohoo!! I love it!

Buy It: The Yoga Mom Grocery Bags are priced at $5.00 each. Very reasonable!!

Know Your Risks!

I did a post on "Women Know Your Hearts" on last week. This week I will be dealing with the risks of Heart Disease. While family history, race, and age can increase your risk of heart disease, so can lifestyle choices or other physical conditions including:

*High Blood Pressure (hypertension)
*High LDL, or "bad" cholesterol, high triglycerides, and/or low HDL or "good" cholesterol
*Diabetes
*Tobacco smoke
*Being physically inactive
*Being overweight or obese

If you would like to obtain more information on the "Risks of Heart Disease", please visit www.womenheart.org or contact your family physician.

I just lost my Grandmother (my Stepdad's Mother) early this morning from a fatal heart attack. So I know that it is important for all women alike to know their heart. Is your chest pains acid reflux or a heart attack? Please take a few minutes of your time and visit WomenHeart.org.

Women, Help Your Heart!

I'm sharing this information with you because, Heart Disease runs in my family. My precious grandfather died of it, and it played a role in my great-aunt (his sister) death. Furthermore, my Mom is showing signs of heart disease. So I take this personally and hoping to help others regarding heart disease.

According to The National Coalition for Women With Heart Disease, Heart disease is the leading killer of women in the USA. 1 out of every 4 women will die because of it each year. Furthermore, heart attacks, alone, will claim the lives of more than 250,000 women-6 times more than will died of breast cancer (Wow!).

Heart Disease is a big threat to women's health but you can lower your risk if you are smart about your heart. Women we need to wake up and start taking care of our bodies! Know the heart attack warning signs, which are:

*Chest discomfort, pain, squeezing, burning or mild to severe pressure in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes or comes and goes.

*Upper body discomfort in one or both arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach.

*Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort.

*Dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting, nausea and vomiting, cold sweats.

*Feelings of anxiety, fatigue, or weakness-unexplained or on exertion.

Take Action if you are having several heart attack warning signs:

*Call 911 within 5 minutes of the start of symptoms. Tell the operator you think you are having a heart attack. Even if your symptoms stop completely in less than 5 minutes, call your doctor.

I will have more information on my blog regarding heart disease. Please feel free to share your story or share your thoughts.

WIN IT! JERGENS® NATURALS™ DAILY MOISTURIZERS!! 2 Winners!! CLOSED!!



This great giveaway is sponsored by Chrissy, from Tractenberg & Co.! :)

My family and I personally tried the new JERGENS® NATURALS™ Hydrate Daily Moisturizer 6 months ago, and we just loved it! Recently, I had the chance to evaluate the new JERGENS® NATURALS™ Renew Daily Moisturizer and I love it even more! The scent is mild and refreshing, the moisturizer is not greasy, therefore, leaving no greasy film on the skin. This will definitely be a product to buy, especially if you or a family member has dry skin.

INTRODUCING JERGENS® NATURALS™ DAILY MOISTURIZERS

THINK: Over 90% natural for 100% beautiful skin.

WHAT IT IS: A new collection of natural moisturizers from Jergens® Skincare.

For years, you’ve entrusted your skin to Jergens® Skincare and its groundbreaking solutions for firm, smooth, glowing, deeply hydrated skin. Now the Jergens® skincare experts debut their latest innovation in skincare…the first mass-market line of natural body moisturizers that deliver 100% of their benefits exclusively through natural ingredients.

The Jergens® skincare experts know that by using natural products, women feel they are taking better care of themselves. However, when seeking out natural alternatives to traditional moisturizers, women do not want to sacrifice the other aspects of a lotion that are important to them, like a pleasant usage experience, affordability, or a brand that they trust. Now, with Jergens® NaturalsMoisturizers, women can have the best of all worlds: authentically natural moisturizers offered from a brand name with over 100 years of heritage delivering affordable skincare solutions.

Not only do all four Jergens® Naturals™ Daily Moisturizers contain over 90% natural ingredients, but all of them deliver 100% of their moisturizing and beautifying benefits through natural ingredients. Additionally, Jergens® brand chemists took special care to formulate these moisturizers with vegetable-derived ingredients and to ensure that the formulas are paraben free. And as with all Jergens® skincare products, Jergens® Naturals™ Moisturizers are never tested on animals.

Each Jergens® Naturals™ Daily Moisturizer has been specially blended to deliver unique skin benefits and a delightful, naturally nourishing experience:

Responsible Sports For Children of All Ages

The ResponsibleSports.com was created by Liberty Mutual in partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance, US Youth Soccer, USA Hockey and the Amateur Softball Association. It provides resources for parents and coaches at www.responsiblesports.com to help children reap the full benefits of playing a team sport Two of my three children got involved with sports at a young age. My eldest son, who is now an adult, played T-Ball and Touch Football when he was just 5 years old. He was so full of energy!! My husband and I decided to channel my son's energy in a positive way. Sports has made a profound impact on my children lives. Once quiet and bashful children, now they are outgoing, sociable, interact well with each other as well as with their peers and adults. I encourage and reinforce the positive aspects of youth sports by participating and attending my children sports events, stopping by their practices and watch them practice, and providing support to them whenever they need it.

The 40-Year-Old Version & The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood--Books Giveaway! ~~~CLOSED~~~


I'm giving away 2 great books to my readers. I won both books in a couple of giveaways and I don't have use for them. They are in perfect condition.



The first book, "The 40-Year-Old Version," was written by Joel Schwartzberg. Joel, an award winning essayist and screenwriter, provides an insight, warm, and self aware look at what it's like to be a divorced dad in today's world. I read some of the excerpts, which was quite entertaining.The second book, "The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood," was written by William Sears, M.D.,
Martha Sears, R.N., James Sears, M.D., and Robert Sears, M.D.. All four are also Authors of The Family Nutrition Book.

The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood book:

*Identifies foods and eating habits that can counter or prevent many common illnesses.
*Reveals how you can shape young tastes to crave healthy foods in the right proportions.
*Provides the tools, the tips, and the knowledge you need in virtually every nutrition circumstance-from dealing with a picky eater to curbing an adolescent's junk food cravings.
*Draws on the latest research in biochemistry and nutrition science as it outlines steps you can take to guard your child against Nutritional Deficit Disorder.

I found both books very interesting when I flipped through the pages, however, I'm not an avid bookworm like I was in high school. I would love to share my blessings with 2 other readers.

Now for the part you are all waiting for: 2 of Naddez's Goody Corner Readers will have a chance to win one of these books. This contest is for bloggers and non-bloggers alike.
