Do you really think you are too cute for Dollar Tree?

Do you really think you are too cute for Dollar Tree?

Dollar Tree is a great store because you can find so many great household buys.  You can stop in there and get snacks for your kids, laundry care, hair care, and etc.

This store can be used for you to make your own creations for a good price.  Let's just step out of the box for a minute.  Dollar Tree has so many cleaning products and if you wanted to start a small cleaning business, you have everything at your disposal at Dollar Tree.

I know a lot of people who snicker and turn their nose up at Dollar Tree and other dollar stores because they think all the products are made cheaply or they do not perform as well as some of the other name brand products out there.

There are some products that are made cheaply but you can weed through those and get your hands on some products that really work.  I recently bought a big body wash at Dollar Tree and the fragrance was very mild but for my Eczema riddled skin, this body wash was definitely a good product for me to try.

The main purpose that we are really trying to achieve is to have clean skin and to smell clean.  Some of these "anti-dollar store snobs" are the ones that do not have two coins to rub together because they spend money without thinking.

These folks think that they are too good for a dollar store but they are constantly begging and asking you for your money; what a disgrace!

When it boils down to it, you can buy whatever you want and especially if you have the financial means to do so but if your pockets are empty, you need to train your mind to think differently when it comes to finances.

For instance,  why buy the ten dollar shampoo when you can buy two big bottles of shampoo and it will cost one dollar each and it works well on your hair.  Those two bottles will last you a few months.

It all boils down to having priorities and figuring out what is really important and think about what you can cut down on and what to actually spend money on.

There are some products that you do want to spend a little extra on but shopping at Dollar Tree will help you to cut down on your weekly or monthly budget by half.

At Home Teeth Whitening: Does It Work?

At Home Teeth Whitening: Does It Work?

Create a great smile with Smile Brilliant!
#AD Sponsored, I received product to try out and review.  All opinions are my own.
 Growing up with bad teeth was extremely difficult. I was teased and treated less than a human being because my teeth were and are crooked.

It definitely was not easy! I promised myself that one day, I would get my smile fixed, but because of family and other obligations, I was never able to do so.

It is not easy to secure employment or opportunities if your smile is less than perfect.  In fact, I was passed over better jobs because of my smile.

 I was contacted by a wonderful company, "Smile Brilliant" to try their product.  It was very easy to take the impressions and send back the impressions.  All you have to do is mix the Catalyst and the Base together in your hand and not over mix so it doesn't get hard too fast.

Then you put the impression material into the tray and put into your mouth and do not bite down so you can get a great impression the first time.

When I opened the "Smile Brilliant" box, I was so impressed by the Desensitizing Gel and the Teeth Whitening Gel. I told myself " Now I am able to smile brilliantly without shame."

Smile Brilliant is extremely, affordable and it could be the solution that you have been waiting for!

                                                        This is my before and after photos.




As you can see in my before photo, it is not terribly stained but you can see that it is more beige looking and the after picture, my teeth looks more white and clear and it really stands out.

Check out Smile Brilliant to see what this product can do for your smile.
"Smile Brilliant" is a great solution to get that bright and gorgeous smile that you have always wanted.

Smile Brilliant is great to use to whiten your teeth but it is also very important to use if you are going to an interview or you want to whiten your teeth before your wedding.

Look how white my smile is!  Smile Brilliant is truly amazing!
This system is very affordable and you can that "White, Bright, smile" that you have always wanted."

How to buy and pack clothes for your trip.

How to buy and pack clothes for your trip.

A lot of people are planning trips since the weather is getting warmer.  Shopping for clothes and deciding what to wear can be difficult and the clothes that you pack need to be clothes that will
remain wrinkle-free.

You will have to decide what activities you will be involved in whether it is for business or pleasure.
If you are going on a business trip you want to have dresses, lightweight suits, skirts, blouses and two pairs of pumps in black and nude colors.

Your Hotel will definitely have an iron that you can use to keep your clothes wrinkle-free but if you pack your clothes in a neat manner and with fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, you will be able to avoid the iron.

When you shop and pack for your trip, check out the clothing that you already have to cut down on your expenses.  Check out your local consignment or thrift store for great buys on new-to-you fashions that will bring color and pizazz to your wardrobe and also check out some yard sales.

You will definitely be surprised at how easy it will be for you to accomplish this on a very small budget.

Make sure that check the soles of your shoes to make sure that they are in great condition before you pack them in your suitcase. All clothing should be color coordinated to mix and match with everything.
 Leave a little room in your suitcase to pack your souvenirs so you will not be overwhelmed by too much stuff.
 If you are not traveling for business, then you can bring pretty much what you want on your trip.  Lightweight dresses and cut-off jean shorts will definitely do.

Auauna Portable Twin Tub Washing Machine

Hello, everyone, this is my review of the Auauna Twin Tub Washing machine review
that I did on my Youtube Channel Sashamoniquetalks.

 This is a great machine and I scored it for a great price.  If you are living in a small
apartment or in an RV, you need this wonderful washing machine.

If you have small children, this machine would be great for you because of the amount
of laundry that you accumulate throughout the week.

This machine can be a little noisy but you can remedy this by adding a small amount
of clothing to the spin cycle.

The Auauna washing machine does not take up much space so it is easily storable.
I purchased this washing machine through eBay and I am so pleased with this machine.

Saving money is easy and you will save too if you purchase an "Auauna" Twin Tub washing machine!

Why I love Ivory Clean Original Body Wash!

Why I love Ivory Clean Original Body Wash!

Disclaimer: I purchased Ivory Clean Body Wash with my own money.  Was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.

I have been using "Ivory Clean Body Wash" on and off, for some time now and the reason being, my skin is so sensitive and I experience so many breakouts.  This body wash is so gentle and kind to my skin and it has such a mild but beautiful scent.

The reason I have used it on and off is that there are a lot of new body washes that are on the market and I love a body wash that smells good, with a strong scent, but they do not react well with my skin. I kept jumping around from product to product with horrible results.

I spent most of the winter trying to nurse my broken skin, back to health; It was truly heartbreaking!

Remember this picture?
My skin was broken out for a long time, with multiple trips to my doctor's office to find a cure.
It felt like my skin was in attack mode and it was really difficult to treat my Eczema. It was such a long ordeal.
 I had to resort to using this Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment again and I started to finally find a little relief but, I was determined to go back to some products that I knew, wouldn't break out my skin.
Sometimes you just have to start from the beginning to find something that will work.
 "Ivory" has always been a trusted brand in my home because I have always used Ivory Soap for as long as I can remember. The Ivory clean body wash is amazing because it cleans well and gives me the satisfaction of knowing that I have a product that is dependable.

The fact that it is really mild, gives me something to smile about!

The only Con, using this body wash is, it is thinner in consistency than the one that I used to buy.  I really don't understand why they changed the formulation. When I was taking my shower, I found myself using more of this product because it didn't lather much.

I didn't pay more than $3.00 for this body wash so that is a great buy but I would like for Procter & Gamble to make this body wash thicker, to make it feel like a better quality product.

Below, you will see what I mean about Ivory Clean Original body wash is a bit thin.

This body wash is a little watery, right?

My final analysis regarding this product is; it is a great product and it is working on my damaged and itchy skin.  I am going to try to stick with using this product to get my skin back to a healthy state.

My skin feels so soft and it is clearing beautifully!  If you have seen this product in your local store please pick it up because your skin will love it.  I bought this bottle from Walmart and I wish that I had purchased two or three of this great body wash.

Check CVS or your local Sunday's Newspaper to see if they have coupons that you can use towards "Ivory Clean" to get the best deals.

Are you wasting your time blogging because you just want money and fame?

Are you wasting time blogging because you just want money and fame?
Success, Hand, Ambition, Career, Rise

I truly enjoy blogging and if it leads to opportunities, I would embrace it with open arms, but blogging provides an opportunity for me to share my voice and interactions, with people who are like minded.

There are so many people who just get into blogging because it is a way to promote yourself and your brand and there is nothing at all wrong with that.

But some people seem to think that blogging is a "get rich scheme" and it is nothing of the sort.  Blogging is very time consuming and if your heart isn't in it, you will get bored pretty fast.

You will have to work hard to get any perks that you see some of the more famous blogs get.  No one knows all the hard work that those blogs put in and the sacrifices that were made.

You have to be very ambitious because it takes a long time to get your blog to the level where it will bring in the money and all the great rewards.

Blogging is working a long time without pay and you have to love sharing knowledge for free.  What some of you don't know is, you also have to spend money to advertise because when you are a new blogger, no one will know who you are and you will have to prove yourself.

Do a lot of research to see if this is something that you really want to invest a lot of time and money into.

Wealth Money Banking Cash Finance Business

Blogging is very rewarding and I get excited to see where I started and where my blog is going.

Once you pay your dues and get the experience that you need, then wealth can definitely come, but work hard, plan, and research, and make your blog the best one out there in your niche.

Don't be so fast to throw in the towel when your blog isn't growing as fast as you think it should.  Keep at it and be faithful and your reward will come when you least expect it.
