No tummy tuck needed! Get your prebaby body back naturally!

 By Angela Calavicci

Every mommy knows the frustrations of the physical changes to your body after having a baby that you never get back! The loose skin, stretch marks and sagging breasts are especially frustrating since Drs. offer little help or advise. It’s one of those “oh I hope I can save up for a tummy tuck” kinda things. I have 2 daughters. Now for me, my body bounced back pretty quickly (Yay for breastfeeding) and my normal weight returned quickly (Lucky, I know!) But I still had stretch marks and loose skin. What a bummer and a depressing feeling to be thin after baby and still feel like I looked disgusting. I know I am not the only one. I went from a lights on kinda girl to a low lighting lady 😉 You know what I’m talking about here. Now I am a sweepstakes and contest kinda girl so I get introduced to lots of new products that I would otherwise never know of. So I start seeing these before and after pictures for It Works! Globals Ultimate Body Applicators. The before

 and after photos were pretty amazing transformations were pretty amazing but I’m a thin girl so it was cool to see the results but I wasn’t really interested for me personally. Then I started seeing that they help with loose skin, stretch marks and cellulite and I was hooked! I WANTED THAT! What lady doesn’t? So while I was waiting to get the money for it (only $25!) I started reading about becoming a loyal customer. You get 4 wraps for $59 as a loyal customer, plus 10% back in rewards, wholesale prices for life on all products, free shipping on orders of $125, free shipping on any order after 3 months and a $100 credit after being a customer on auto-ship for 12 months. Now to become a loyal customer you do have to sign up for auto shipments of 3 months minimum to get all the benefits. You only have to have one product minimum each month and can change products each month as long as you have one. You can even jump from one product to 3 back down to one

 if you want. Now we are a low income family and I am a deal hunter so I was torn in two! I wanted that deal badly but I wasn’t sure I could come up with the $59 a month for wraps. Then I found out there were other products that my boyfriend would use for as low as $23. I could probably more easily come up with that if we were low on money. Then I found out you could become a distributor for only $99 and it came with 4 wraps! You sell them for $25-$35 so I could make my money back right away! Then of course I could order wholesale after that any time I wanted and make some money too! Also if you get 4 Loyal customers in your first 30 days you get 2 free 4 packs of wraps! This was definitely the option for me! My goal was to join and at least get my wraps paid for within the year because I only have 15 minutes a day realistically to commit to and being a deal hunter I’m happy to double my money. So I signed up and couldn’t get around to really selling for a couple months. I did get to use my wraps and my boyfriend tried one too! He lost 4.75 inches with one and I tightened up my loose skin and reduced my stretch marks! I was thrilled! Plus results are progressive so I have used several wraps now and keep getting better results. I think I need about one more then I’m back to normal on the loose skin! How exciting is that! Plus they are so easy to use! You just put one on for 45 minutes (keep it on with saran wrap or tight clothing) and drink water! That’s it! Now after I tried the wrap I wanted to try the defining gel. This is something you put on like lotion one to two times a day that helps with loose skin too! You can only use one Ultimate Body Applicator every 72 hours so it’s nice to have something you can see results with daily. The Defining Gel quickly became my favorite! So now I had two products I needed to make money back to pay for. Well my boyfriends hours went down (he was working up to 14 hour

 days) so now I had time to sell. Well in 22 days of working up to 2 hours a day not only did I make my goal of getting my money back (including business card costs, etc) I got promoted to the next level! I am one happy lady! My loose skin is almost gone, my stretch marks are down to less than half what they were (I’ve got my eye on the stretch mark cream for my next purchase!) and I’m making money at home! I went from needing a tummy tuck to being happy with my body! Now not only do Ultimate Body Applicators help with loose skin, cellulite and stretch marks they also flush toxins from fat cells which causes them to shrink! And results last 2-6 months! It is as if you exercised it off so results can be indefinite if you eat right and exercise too. You can also use defining gel and Ultimate Body Applicators to perk up your girls! Email me and ask for technique if you want lift only or lift/reduction. I am really happy to be able to spread the word and

 help other Mommy’s get their baby bodies back! There is nothing better than being a mother but it does come at a price. I want to help offer a “discount” on that price 😉 You can be a Mommy and get your sexy self back! Now most people have results with just one Ultimate Body Applicator and progressive results with more but some people do need more than one to get any results. We also carry other weight loss, beauty, and health products (Chin and neck applicators for double chins, vitamins, fat fighters (to absorb fat from food), thermo-fit to increase caloric burn, facials and antiaging products) but of course nothing as exciting to me as the Ultimate Body Applicator, Defining Gel and Stretch Mark Cream! You really can look like you again! If you would like more information or want to try a single Ultimate Body applicator please feel free to email me at angela@richandfirm.com To order products, or sign up as a loyal customer or distributor you can do so here. If you want to see real before and after photos please visit my Facebook page  I am here to help you get your baby body back or make some income! I really do appreciate all your questions and love to help! Thank you so much for letting me ramble on about my experience and I do hope I can help you too!

Nancy Chartrand and  Penny Godwin, two friends and now successful business partners have owned and operated Pink Bowtique since March 2008. Nancy and Penny, both stay at home moms at the time, where giving the opportunity to purchase the company from a friend. The friend, having three very young children at the time, decided she needed to sell her business because of the time involved in running it. For Nancy and Penny, this opportunity could not come at a better time. Nancy, who had an unexpected pregnancy when her youngest of three children was in the 4th grade, and Penny, who was very excited about her daughter going to UCLA, were worried about the new expenses their lives where about to take on. After training in the areas needed for running their internet business, Nancy and Penny took over the small one woman production and turned it into the largest baby headband, hair bow and accessory business on the web today!

Pink Bowtique  manufactures and sells baby boutique products on the world-wide web.  Most of the products you will find on their site are custom designed, created, manufactured and shipped directly from their facility in the Turlock, CA. PinkBowtique.com

Nancy and Penny’s older children also are employed, both during the summer and during the school year. They have been able to gain business experience and make money to provide for themselves while they are away at school.

“Nancy and I feel that one of the reasons our business has experienced such success is that we operate it by the golden rule.  Our philosophy includes providing customers with a baby boutique built on honesty in business, integrity in the goods that are sold, quality that customers can rely on, and delivery and presentation that customers can trust and know will be the best found in today’s market.  We pride ourselves in expedient customer service – what was once a requirement for all businesses, but tends to be a rarity in today’s business climate.  We guarantee 100% satisfaction in every baby headband, hair bow, tutu, bloomer onesie, baby outfit, and other assorted baby items that we sell.  We are a legally operating business entity (LLC) and hold a current business license, California resale certificate, and have a registered Tax ID. ” – Penny

Penny and Nancy were so kind to send my Mommy and Me Mommies to be group one of their Sunhats and a bow to review. When we received the box in the mail and opened it we could not believe how professional and unique the wrapping is. Secure in their own clear plastic box with a beautiful pink ribbon bow.

Clever Girl Innovations

Clever Girl Innovations GlamMat Review

With all of the curling irons and hair straighteners I have used, I am always worried that they will burn the counter or fall and burn the floor. Recently Clever Girl Innovations allowed me to review one of their famous GlamMats. Let me tell you these generously sized mats aren’t just useful for styling tools. The raised very decorative pattern grips everything from styling tools to shears and other beauty items. GlamMats are made of safe nontoxic silicone which helps prevent damage from burns, drops and spills. Each GlamMat is heat resistant to 450 degrees and are specially designed to disperse heat away from any surface it is placed on. GlamMats aren’t just perfect for styling tools but instead have an endless amount of uses. GlamMats are available in four different colors. Black, Clear, Pink and Purple.  Each Glammats measure 5.4″ x 9″ to hold more than one styling tool and give you a generous amount of space no matter what you use your GlamMat for.

Anyone who loves crafts will love its superior gripping ability and unique raised design when working with beads, clasps, and other small items which tend to want to roll away! GlamMat is sure to keep all of your craft supplies in one place and ready when you need them. Secure your glasses, cell phones and remote controls by placing them on one handy surface. No more sliding off the table with GlamMat! You can even use it under your favorite casserole dish to protect your table and counter top. Buy one for the man in your life so those little nuts, bolts and screws don’t roll away when he is assembling a project around the house.  Use it in the car to keep your cell phone, sunglasses and other items secure. Even my husband used mine this weekend. He was working on his R/C cars and used my GlamMat to keep all the little screws and bolts from getting lost. Plus, he loved how the bright color of the mat made it easy to locate the parts.

Another Clever Girl Innovations product is GlamEars. GlamEars help protect your ears from severe burns when using hot styling tools, such as curling irons, hair straighteners, hot rollers and blow dryers. Did you know that these tools heat to an excess of 400 degrees? This can cause serious burns to delicate ear tissue. How many times have you dyed your hair at home and ended up staining your ears the color of the dye? GlamEars are perfect for when you are dying your hair and can protect your ears from those annoying stains that you never know how long they will last. (Yes, I am guilty of this.) GlamEars are reusable and easy to put on and east to remove. GlamEars are one size fits most and are available in two colors, Clever Girl Pink and Violet Blush.

Clever Girl Innovations take pride that GlamEars and GlamMat are made in the USA. GlamEars and GlamMat are both created with the glam girl in mind – durable, decorative and designer inspired! Even though hair dye may stain your GlamEars or GlamMat, it will never affect the integrity of your product. GlamMats and GlamEars are easy to wash with soap and water and air dry fast. GlamMats and GlamEars are both heat resistant up to 450 degrees.

Stilazzi Make Up Brush Review

I have a rather large bag of make up flubs! What is a Flub? You know those products that had all the hype and you just had to get them. Then you got home tried them and they just didn’t meet your expectations. Then I have what I call my can’t live without bag! It is filled with all of my favorite products that I have discovered. Recently I discovered Stilazzi and I have to say that they are one of my favorite cosmetic tools! They have everything from brushes to applicators and bags! They are a dream for anyone who loves the latest and highest quality products. They provide hairstylist, make-up artists, nail technician with professional tools they need on a daily basis!

Here is some background information about Stilazzi. Stilazzi was established in 2009.  the the team behind Frends Beauty Supply created the Stilazzi line to address the needs of makeup artists, and other beauty industry professionals. And they did just that! Stilazzi is an amazing line that brings style, quality, and affordability together. Stilazzi specializes in the development of personal and stationary products for salons, spas, schools, freelance artists and other related industries. Stilazzi’s most important goal is to provide an outstanding level of customer care and 100% customer satisfaction.

I currently use three of Stilazzi’s brushes on a daily basis. Stilazzi’s Small Shadow BrushBlender Brush and Large Powder Brush.

 

I am a huge fan of Stilazzi’s Small Shadow Brush. It is made of Stable hair and is super soft. It is a soft but firm small rounded paddle brush. It is easy to hold which makes it perfect to apply my powder eyeshadows. It easily gets the creases and helps me achieve the professional look I desire.

 

Stilazzi’s Blender Brush is another one of my favorite brushes. The bristles are made of a blend of  blue squirrel and goat hair. I use it to apply and blend my blush. It is great for that finished look!

 

Stilazzi’s Large Powder Brush is great for applying powder make-up especially powder foundations. The bristles are a blend of goat and squirrel hair. The Bristles easily holds your powder or pressed foundations and bronzers and allows you to get a professional finished look. It has a large handle that makes it easy to use.

Be sure to follow Stilazzi on Twitter and on Facebook to stay up to date on all of their latest releases and sales! Stilazzi also has a Youtube page where you can find all kinds of tips and product demos.

Sparkly Soul Headband Review

I am a girl so it’s pretty obvious that I love things that sparkle! I have fairly long hair and as a mom I am constantly brushing it out of my face. I have tried many so-called non-slip headbands and well they didn’t work and they are now sitting in the hair box of products that don’t work and I have no use for. Don’t forget about the headbands that are so tight that you get a massive headache from wearing them. Sparkly Souls have come up with NON-SLIP headbands that actually WORK! These very sparkly bands have Glitter going all the way around, not just the front or one section but 360* of total sparkly glitter. The entire band is made of elastic. Sparkly Soul headbands are available in 10 colors, Black, Blue, Gold, Green, Orange, Pink, Dark Purple, Light Purple, Red and Silver. Sparkly Thin Headbands are 3/8 of an inch in width and Sparkly wide headbands are 5/8 of an inch in width. Sparkly Soul Headbands are one size fits all adults. Sparkly Soul Headbands are perfect to wear for any occasion and are the perfect addition to any hair accessories. What is great is that Sparkly Soul Inc was created by  a marathoner and triathlete for all the women who find their strength and soul while pushing themselves to their athletic limits. They made sure that Sparkly Soul headbands stay in place and  hair out of our face no matter how active we are. They are perfect for athletes no matter if you are a  runner, walker, dancer, triathlete, yogi, pilates buff, cyclist, cheerleader, or ballplayer.
