L'Oreal Collagen Micro Pulse Eye Review

I received the L'Oreal Micro-Pulse Eye as a sample from BzzAgent and have been using it for about 4 weeks.

The L'Oreal Micro-Pulse is a combination of a unique and potent cream with Erasyl to help diminish dark circles and Collagen to help smooth away wrinkles with a micro-pulse massager to minimize eye puffiness. Collagen Micro-Pulse delivers visible results:

Immediately: Crow's feet and eye bags appear reduced

In 4 Weeks: Crows feet appear reduced
Dark circles appear minimized
Eye Bags appear visibly diminished

The product is easy to use in just 2 steps:

Step 1: Apply cream
Step 2: micro-pulse, stimulates circulation to reduce puffiness and bags for rejuvenated

My opinion of the product was after about 2 weeks of using it, I noticed that my eyes looked brighter and smoother. I absolutely loved the micro-pulse massager, felt very nice having that pulsation under my tired eyes. I would definitely buy this product in the future.

The L'Oreal Micro-Pulse Eye is:
  • Ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested for safety
  • non-greasy, fragrance free formula
  • found in all major drug stores, supermarkets, and big box stores
  • retail price of $19.99

*Disclaimer: I've received this product from as part of a campaign for review, this is my honest opinion.

Fracture Printing and Framing the Easy Way Review

Printing and framing pictures is often a huge hassle and can become really expensive really fast. Between getting your photos printed, finding a suitable frame, and figuring out how to mount them, the frustrations (and dollars) have mounted, and the magic has gone away. However, you now have a contemporary, affordable, and practical way to show off all your favorite family pictures -- Fracture. Fracture is the fastest, easiest, best way to get your pictures from your camera to your wall.

I visited the Fracture website and uploaded a picture. The site is super easy to navigate, and gives you many options on ways to customize your frame, from the size frame you need to the color and patterns of borders if choosen. You can also edit your picture by cropping, resizing, grayscale or shadowing. I chose a border and shadowing. You get the option of having it come with hardware to hang on the wall or a stand. I chose the stand option since I'm running out of wall space.

Fracture's introductory product lets you print your digital pictures right onto glass! There's no paper, film or anything involved. Simply ink and glass. We have effectively combined printing, framing, and mounting into one simple process.

It came in the mail very well packaged to prevent breakage, with it being"cushioned" on all sides

Fractures are very safe: all sharp edges are removed, and they are completely okay to touch and handle.
Fractures are durable: the prints are shatter proof (unlike traditional glass frames), and the images will not fade for years beyond average prints

I absolutely love this idea, and will do this again between printing and running out to the store to find that "special" frame my memories will make it to the wall rather than ending up in the "to do" pile.

Fractures are very practical and elegant: you can use them for any occasion, from Christmas and graduation gifts, to simple "Thank You's".
Fractures are for everyone: from avid photographers to snap happy point-and-shoot lovers, anyone can get Fractured!

Prices run from $8-$25. To learn more visit

**I received a free Fracture frame for review. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.

First Day of School

I've decided I'm going to chronical my children's school days in a journal so I can look back and reminisce. My kiddos are growing up so fast and it just makes me sad.
This morning I woke up very early, earlier than what I have been use to lately. This is what I woke up to. It was an absolutely gorgeous morning, which in turn became a beautiful sunny 90 degree day!

All three kiddos woke up with no problem today. Even though they all had trouble sleeping last night and didn't go to bed till late they woke up ready...well ready as they could be. My oldest is in 10th grade and my middle daughter is in 7th so they were both going to a school that they were familiar with. My son on the other hand got moved to another school, so it was all new to him. I think I was more nervous then he was. He was way to cool to hold mommy's hand when walking into the school...the little bugger didn't even give me a kiss goodbye!!

After dropping off the last kiddo to school it was time for me to unwind so I decided to get back into my workout that I have been so lax with over the summer. I did my walk/run routine for an hour. It feels wonderful to be back to "normal".

The kids had an awesome day today and I think it's going to be a wonderful year for all three, 1 day done 179 more to go!!

Now time for me to finish the mommy homework given to me from all THREE...that is ALOT of paperwork!!!
