My Twitter Prize Has Arrived! SchoolofWash.Com

I went to a book launch Twitter party last month for Shane Jeremy James' latest book, Networking to Wealth: The Seven Figure Secrets of Network Marketing Multi-Millionaires. It was an opportunity to learn more about Mr. James and his new book but also to win some prizes!

I was so excited when they announced that I had won some SoapWash products and that I could pick out the scent!

This gal is in love with the scent of cinnamon bun since I purchase a bar of homemade Cinnamon Bun soap from an Etsy store last Christmas. The scent just lifts me up after a stressful day.

I've been using the School of Wash Cinnamon Bun shampoo, condition and body wash for a few weeks now. The body wash creates a love amount of suds and rinses off clean. The shampoo and condition are wonderful. Not much of an effort to rinse them out. And my husband loves the scent!

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia by R. Paul St. Amand, Claudia Craig Marek

I picked this book up at the library because of the title. These days, I'm very open to reading about natural treatments for Fibromyalgia.

Like many of the Good Reads reviews stated this is a must read for Fibromyalgia sufferers. The facts about Fibromyalgia are laid out in a very easy to easy way.

Whether you decide to follow the guaifenesin regiment, exercise and or the diet, there's lots of good information for everyone!

I currently eat less processed foods and more whole foods but after reading this book, I've decided that I should cutback on the dairy and see what happens.

“Mom passed this morning,” Corbin Bernsen posted. “She was in peace and without fear.”

The Young and the Restless fans have lost a dear friend. Jeanne Cooper, known as Katherine Chancellor on the show, past away on Thursday, May 8, 2013.

She was on the show for more then 30 years making her the longest running cast mate . While I no longer watch the soap I do follow a Y&R fan, who keeps me updated with her tweets.

Axe Mens Classic Hair Products's Cravebox Has Arrived!

Have you jumped on the Cravebox bandwagon yet? If you haven't heard of Cravebox yet, it's a monthly product delivery service that is built up around various themes, that introduces you to new products and services.

Unlike most monthly product delivery programs, you select amongst the theme box and the quantity. There's no automatic shipments. There's a nominal charge, $10-15, which includes shipping.

This month, I selected Axe Mens Classic Hair Products! Usually, I purchase a food theme but decided to do something special for my husband.

When my hubby got home, he was surprised to find these full size Axe hair products on night stand.

What Twitter Parties Are Scheduled for the Week?

Instead of stalking Twitter all day, I choice to just follow Mommy Blog Expert. Each week she shares the upcoming Twitter parties, including details on prizes you can win, and links to RSVP! Oh, and make note of whether the Twitter Parties is for the U.S. and/or Canada. I actually attended a Twitter party, won a prize but later was informed it was for Canada only! (I was bummed)

Mommy Blog Expert also gives you sneak previews to parties too.

That way you won't miss out on a great party!

May 6 is Melanoma Monday

Did you know that today is Melanoma Monday? I sure didn't till I joined a Twitter party and a HuffPostLive segment.

Nancy Redd, HuffPostLive, had a wonderfully informative panel, which included Andrea Heitker, Melanoma survivor and awareness advocate. Andrea actually developed Stage 3 Melanoma at 37.

According to the panel if you get it detected within the first 5 years, before it spreads to the lymph nodes, you have a 98% survival rate! That's worth the trip to dermatologist.

And while many people of color may think they're exempt from developing skin cancer, they will be sadly mistaken. Bob Marley died from melanoma under his toenail.

I was truly educated today and know will put the tools to work in my household.

Menu Plan Monday ~ May 6, 2013

I'm starting my first week of training, for my work at home job! After over a year of having my day be unscheduled it will be a huge adjustment. I will need to be organized so that I can still get my exercise, mediation and leisure time into my day!

The Panzanella (bread salad) and Shrimp Corn Chowder are eMeals recipes! I actually won a 3 month subscription, to eMeals, at a Twitter party recently. It was perfect timing for my busy schedule and need for healthy, tasty meals.

Thanks to Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Mondays!
