HORMEL REV Wraps Review

We as parents are always looking for snacks that are healthy and satisfying. Especially for teens who have a huge appetite and sweet and salty snacks are just not fulfilling. Well I feel that HORMEL has answered that call! HORMEL has a new snack for teens call HORMEL REV Wraps that is made with real meat, real cheese, and provides your teen with real energy! This sounds real good to me!


I am a #BzzAgent and I was given the opportunity to try out this new wrap. I was mailed some coupons to purchase the wrap of my choice. Each wrap is in its own individual package and they are also numbered and colored for your convenience. These are the different wraps that HORMEL come in.

#1 Pepperoni Pizza 
#2 Ham and Cheese 
#3 Peppered Turkey
 #4 Meat Lovers Pizza 
#5 Italian Style Ham 
#6 Hot Pepper Ham 

I tried #3 Peppered Turkey and the wrap is quite a nice size. It is already wrapped for you in the package so you do not have to put it together and wrap it yourself. You can pop it in the microwave for about 15 seconds to get it at a desired temperature that is comfortable for you or your teen. This HORMEL REV Wrap is 18g of protein which is a great way to get some protein into my teen who is always on the go. He enjoyed it! Now that is a plus for me because I have a very picky eater even at his age! This is a great snack for on the go and can be paired with your favorite beverage of choice. My teen has also used this wrap for breakfast when we are having a hectic morning and need to rush out the door!  HORMEL has hit a home-run with this great snack alternative for teens! Parents, you're gonna love this snack and so will your teen! Find HORMEL REV Wraps in your cold cuts isle at your local supermarket.

Coping with a loss

Haven't posted in a while but have been dealing with the anniversary of my husband's death. May 28, 2013 made a year since he has been gone and it is never easy for me when I think of how much he meant to me. Still trying to get my peace from it and it just isn't coming fast enough but maybe through more time, it will. Time does heal all wounds so I am grateful for the strength of my friends and family who continue to keep me encouraged. If you are dealing with a loss of a loved one I just want to encourage you that no matter what, you will get through it. In due time, the tears will stop flowing and you will remember them with smiles and laughter. I am still in the tears phase but also some smiles and laughter as well. Always remember the good times and please don't stop living because that is not what they would have wanted for you. Just wanted to encourage someone with these words. Be blessed!

L'OREAL Paris Magic Skin Beautifer B.B. Cream Review

#MagicBBCream @LOrealParisUSA @SheSpeaksUp 
Hello fellow viewers! I have another review for you and this product is from L'OREAL Paris.  The product is called "Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream".  I was excited to be given this opportunity to try this product myself and provide my views on it.  As you all know, their are a lot of B.B. Creams on the market and it is hard to chose which one is right for your skintone.  Like, some of you, I was kind of skeptical about trying a B.B. Cream, but said to myself, "I gotta start somewhere"!  When the opportunity presented itself for me to try this product, I said, "Why not!"  I love trying new products and felt that L'OREAL would be the perfect product for me!  The product is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization.

Now a little bit about this new B.B. Cream from L'OREAL Paris.  It has four (4) beautifying actions in this one cream which (1) Primes, (2) Perfects (3) Hydrates, and (4) Corrects.  That's a lot of benefits for me to put to the test! I have combination skin which my T-Zones are oily and I have large pores on my cheeks and nose.  So this B.B. Cream would really have to live up to it's name of being a "Magic Skin Beautifier".  It is not a large bottle which is good for me because I don't like bottles that take up a lot of room on my bathroom shelf.  You simply dot on and blend with fingertips. The self-adjusting beads will instantly transform and blend to your skin tone.  Pretty straight forward and to the point right? Well, it delivered everything that it states and I was really amazed.  Check out my before and after photos in the SheSpeaks photo gallery for this product. It blended very well with my skintone and left my skin looking beautiful to where as you did not even see the oil in my T-Zones at all all day! How is that for 24-hour moisturization!  Now that is a product that I will use for life!  The product comes out literally looking white on your fingertips but once it is blended on your facial it absorbs to match the tone of your skin. Now that's Magic! So have I convinced you to go out and buy L'OREAL Paris Magic Skin Beautifier B.B.Cream? I sure hope so because you won't be sorry if you did. You can purchase at mass food and drug retailers nationwide and it is available in four shades. L'OrĂ©al Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz.  Go on, check it out!
