Pumpkin Carving Is Easy with

I recently reviewed the 5pc. Pumpkin Carving Kit from
This kit is so easy to use and made carving my pumpkin a breeze.  I felt like a pro and was so proud of the results! I started by taping the pattern I wanted to my pumpkin

I chose one of the more difficult patterns and had no problem at all with the great tools that are included in the kit. 
I then poked little holes in the pattern using the handy tools included in the kit.

The last step was carving the pattern.

This is my finished owl pumpkin.  I love the results!  The Sweet Creations Pumpkin Carving Kit of made this so simple.

Halloween cake pops

I had so much fun making Halloween cake pops with my Halloween cake pop mold.

I used Duncan Hines Funfetti cake mix and baked the cake according to the box directions.   I made (2) 9 inch cake rounds.   I then let the cake cool.

I then took the cake rounds and 3/4 container of 16 oz pre-made frosting (white) and placed both in my food processor and pulsed until it was a sand-like consistency.

I then took an ice cream scooper and scooped it into the molds.

I then took the cake pop stick and dipped it into melted chocolate and placed it into the hole.  The chocolate acts as an adhesive to allow the cake to stick to it.  I then placed it in the refrigerator for 2 hours.  The main idea is to let it set.  You can let it sit at room temperature as well.  Make sure to keep it covered.

When the molds were ready I removed them and started to decorate them.  You can make hair by dipping the pop into sugars while the frosting or chocolate coating is still wet.

I melted cups of fros…

ToiletTree Professional Skincare System Review and Giveaway

The ToiletTree Professional Skincare System makes my skin feel fabulous.  It helps clean my pours and exfoliates my skin.  My skin feels so wonderful after every use.  Using this has helped my skin feel so clean and refreshed. 

The system itself contains all of the attachments needed for cleansing my face and body.   The attachments include 2 face exfoliators: a soft (for sensitive skin) and medium (for normal skin) brush. A body exfoliating brush, and a pumice sphere for helping buff away dry skin.  I love using the pumice on my elbows and heels. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

Halloween Peeps Decorating Ideas

Peeps are not only delicious and fun to eat, but they are great for making delicious and festive desserts and favors for any occasion!

I transformed boring pudding into a fun Peeps nest by adding some fun sprinkles and topping it off with a delicious dark chocolate covered Halloween Peeps.

Plain vanilla cupcakes can become fun table placemarkers with a little imagination using different color sprinkles and edible confetti and some fun Halloween peeps.  I used chocolate covered pumpkin peeps, cocoa cat peeps and dark chocolate covered peep chicks.

I transformed a boring store bought cake into a fun and festive Halloween centerpiece  cake by surrounding it with cocoa cat peeps and topping it off with my dark chocolate peeps and a chocolate covered pumpkin peep.

Peeps are delicious marshmallow treats that are inexpensive and delicious.  There are so many ways to become creative with peeps and turn your party into an event worth bragging about.  A little imagination goes a long way!

Friday, November 1st (5:00 – 9:00 PM)

BREAKING NEWS: Reports from Sahara Sam’s Oasis are now confirming that a zombie outbreak is rapidly taking over the lifeguard staff of New Jersey’s Largest Indoor Water Park! Early scientific analysis estimates that by 5:00 PM on Friday November 1st, the entire lifeguard staff will have been affected by the outbreak.

Ageless Derma Special Clay Masque Review

I spend a lot of time outdoors during the Summer months, and living close to the city leaves a lot of impurities in my skin.  There also is a high humidity level during those hot months which makes my skin more oily, which leads to the occasional break out.

Ageless Derma has a wonderful Special Clay Masque which really helped to soothe my skin and clean out my pores.  It removes the impurities and toxins and helps regenerate my skin cell.  It leaves my skin feeling soothed and refreshed.  It didn't over-dry my face like some masks do.
I like to use the Ageless Derma Special Clay Masque once a week.  It is so simple to use. I just wet my face and apply a small amount all over my face.  After about 10 minutes,  I rinse it off.  My skin feels so clean and refreshed.
