Hello, everyone, I have been on YouTube a  very long time.  In fact, it is going to be seven years in May 2019.  I never thought or dreamt that I would be on this platform for this long.  YouTube is lot of fun.  I have worked very hard while on this platform and my hobby has taken me to new heights.

Some people do not think of YouTube of being a media for creating new opportunities. You can supplement your income by being consistent and by promoting yourself.  YouTube is a great way to meet people from all over the world.  You can form friendships with people who you would have never met if it wasn't for YouTube.

People think that YouTube is easy but it really isn't.  Most of the time, if you are a person who is recording on a regular basis, you have to film your video,edit your video, edit your thumbnail, upload your video, add all the important information in your description section, find great tags for your video and then publish.

Many things are happening on YouTube and we have to change right along with the new rules.  YouTube is a great hobby and use it for whatever you need it for.  Below is a video that I made regarding this subject.  Please watch and leave your comment.

What has SashaMoniqueTalks been doing lately

Hello, everyone.  Yes, it is still cold in my state but we have had some warmer days.  Yay! to warmer days, but if you know me well,you know that I hate the summer!

I have taken the time to spend as much time with my family as I can.  We have been hitting those stores, shopping for bargains and eating at some nice places,   This year has been so tough for me with dealing with more health problems, so I honor the time that the good Lord has given me.

My road that is paved to happiness, is a result of enjoying the simple things in life.  I love meeting family at the mall for lunch and just going there to take a break in a good way.  Lately I have been enjoying some great movies that I am kinda late seeing.  The best movie I last seen was "Green Book."  This movie was better than I expected.  You all should go and see it if you haven't.

One good thing about my life's journey, is that my family enjoys a lot of the things that I do.  We enjoy each others company, so it is easy to plan outings and they are right on board with the weekly plans that we have.

By the way, you see these wonderful photos?  They were taken by my daughter T. Robinson.  She has a real gift for photography, so I really thank her for her art and inspiration.

I have been slowly, but surely, changing my diet for the better.  This includes, eating a lot of green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, and baked, chicken, or fish.

Had a health scare, so it prompted me to make some major changes.  For the summer, I would really like to spend time travelling if the weather permits and my health allows.  It is very important to get away and explore other places and of course do some shopping. 

A friend of mines, has suggested that I join some book clubs and I am going to look into it.    You all know that I love music, so I will be checking out some concerts and going to events to meet some new friends.

There is a knitting club in my area and I would love to learn the skill of knitting or crochet.  Many things are available in my area, and these events do not cost much or they are free. 

Community activities are in abundance so why not take advantage of them!

What are some of the things that you are doing or plan to do?  Leave your response in the comment section.

Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Grime Fighter (Citrus)

* Disclaimer:  This post is not sponsored.  I paid for this product with my own money.

I have been using Scrubbing Bubbles for a very long time. This product is a product that I can really rely on to get my bathtub clean.  It has a nice smell and the citrus really makes such a difference in the way your bathroom smells.

Sometimes, I spray my bathtub and let it set for a while and you can see the dirt coming down the walls of the tub. Then I will use my  little scrubber and lightly scrub. Then your tub is so clean!

This product doesn't have any harsh smells and that is good to keep my allergies at bay.   Scrubbing Bubbles will definitely remove soap scum, so that is a lot less work that you have to do.

This bathtub cleaner used to cost a little more years ago, but I purchased mines at Family Dollar and It was under $4.00. This is a great buy!

I love to use products that are guaranteed to work the way that are advertised to do.  You can use this product on your sinks, shower curtains, and counter tops. So, this makes it such an all around product.

You can always find some deals by looking in your local Sunday newspaper.

What was the best advice your father gave you?

My dad was a man who was ahead of his time.  He was always trying to improve himself, to be a better person.  There were many times that I was unsure of myself and he always had a way of making me think and see things in a different way.  My dad was such a hard working man and he poured into me, ideas, for me to embrace opportunities.

He was extremely hard on me and sometimes the words were not kind but I appreciate that he still had faith in me.  Faith that I didn't have!  There was many times that I was upset with him.  I didn't think that he was on my side, but, he was.

When you have lost a parent, you can recall everything whether it was negative or positive.  I miss that old man because he and my grandmother were the ones who showed me how to save money and my dad believed in entrepreneurship.

I want you all to think about the person who made the most impact in your life because this is where you will learn how to make great changes.

Also read and check out people who have inspired you in one way or another.   My father told me to strive towards my dreams and for me to never tell anyone my dreams because people can be very negative and tell you what you can and cannot do.  He said " show them" afterwards.

He also said that I can do anything that I put my mind to, and I really appreciate him for this.  I have strayed from his advice from time to time and I found that everything that he said, was the truth.

Many times I have had people ask me "what are you doing?"  because they were so intrigued with me staying very quiet about my plans.  You do not owe anyone the blueprint to your life, it isn't none of their business.
The Road, Beams, Path, Forest, Nature

The people who do this, are some of the people who never had your back or if they find out about your plans, they will praise another person who are doing the same thing you are doing when you were the creator of it.

Be your own cheerleader and pat yourself on your back!  You are great!  Do not let anyone dull your shine.  Create, create, and create!  Be the best that you can be!  Do not let anyone steal your joy!

SashaMoniqueTalks Youtube playlist of laundry detergent reviews

Hello, everyone.  I just wanted to share my YouTube playlist of my fabulous laundry detergent reviews.  I have been doing them for almost seven years, because I have a real love for laundry detergent.  I love seeing what laundry detergent will clean effectively but still be reasonable in price.

Also, I purchase the expensive, name brand laundry detergents to see if they are really what they claim to be.  You will be surprised what some of the lower price detergents can do and how they stand up in comparison to the "better brands."

I hope you all enjoyed this laundry detergent playlist.  If you want me to review a laundry detergent that I have yet to  review, please leave a comment below.

Suave Essentials Ocean Breeze Body Wash Review

*Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored.  I purchased this product with my own money and this opinion is my own.

Hello, everyone.  I have been using the Suave Essentials Ocean Breeze body wash for a very long time.  This body wash is very inexpensive and although I use other brands from time to time, I always come back to this one.

 The smell is so refreshing, and what I really love, is the fact that they sell the shampoo in this same fragrance. As you all know, I love shopping on a budget and I can always find this product at CVS, Walmart,Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, and a lot of other stores.

I know that you cannot see from the picture but this body wash is in a big 28 ounce bottle and that makes for a lot of baths and showers.  I purchased this body wash at Walmart for $1.98.  It would have been a good idea if  I had purchased three more bottles.

The lather is great and I forgot that they have this product in the hair conditioner in this fragrance as well.

Since you can get Suave for such a great price, you should pick some up for your family members and also donate to some women's shelters because they can also use personal care products.

Well, this is my review of the Suave Essentials Ocean Breeze body wash.  Pick some up and you will not regret it!
