Wink Shape Wear

As a mom of two I know what pregnancy can do to your body. I know what its like to work to get back in shape, and I know exactly how long it takes to achieve that. Their is this in between time after you have baby  where your not pregnant any more but you just haven't quite got your belly back in shape. Where everything is just a little lumpy and bumpy. We all know about the mommy pooch at the bottom of your belly that never really seems to go away no matter how much you work. Wink has just made the pooch a little smoother. They have smoothed out the lumpy and bumpy. With the Wink ultimate belly & hip shaper. These are the key features of the ultimate belly and hip shaper:
  • It has two layers of silky medical compression
  • it extends above the waist and below the hip
  • It has six panels of Hook and eye closure for adjustment and tightening. 
  • Thick wide band at the top and bottom to prevent the garment from rolling up or down
  • A seamless design allows band to be worn under clothing. 
  • Comes in 3 sizes XS-S, M-L,XL-XXL
You can click hear to get it. the ultimate belly and hip shaper sells for $54.99 and comes in two colors black and nude. It is also suitable for all body types.

This wonderful undergarment came to me two weeks a go. I pulled this contraption out of the package and I thought there is no way this stretchy piece of  material is going to help me look any less lumpy and bumpy. I was anxious to give it a try and ran in to put it on. Ten minutes later me and the girls were headed to church. I was hoping that I wouldn't have any issues with ultimate hip & belly shaper in the middle of church.  I even gave it a real good test when I wore it to the park and chased the girls around for an hour.  The slide the swings a game or two of tag, the teeter totter no matter what I did it stayed right where it was meant to. No slipping no bunching and no rolling. This is the first shapwear garment that I have ever wore that did not role up when I sat-down. The length is perfect, it comes from about the bottom of my ribs to an inch below my hip bones. It gives me a nice smooth even look that I love. The best part is my jeans are too big. I could probably go down a hole jean size If not for my thighs I could go down two sizes. I have to put a belt on just to keep my jeans up. It makes me look a lot smoother and slimmer in a dress too.

I would like to talk a bit about sizing I measured my waist hips and thigh like the sizing chart said. I used those numbers to determine what size to get. I believe I should have gotten a size smaller as it is as tight as it will go so If I louse any weight the shaper will be too big and I wont be able to use it any more. Sizes go as follows Extra Small/Small, Medium/Large and XL/XXL.  I got the medium large due to my measurements when I was more of a small medium. I am apparently in between sizes, a Small/Medium would have been perfect for me if they would have come that way. It still fits me well (at least tell I louse weight :), the ultimate hip and belly shaper does its job well, and gives me a very nice slimming look I defiantly louse some inches with it on. I can't wait to try a pair of booty shaper shorts or the ultimate thigh blaster then I could go down two sizes in my jeans. I thought everyone would love to see some actual before and after pictures. If you notice in the after pictures my jeans are actually slipping off me a little.

GRIPAD weight Lifting Gloves

This year, I started a quest to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle.  Everyone knows there are lots of
good benefits to exercising. Their are also some not so great benefits. One problem is the blisters, and calluses that come with lifting weights.  I have now found the solution to the problem.  GRIPAD weight lifting gloves is the newest product in my workout collection. I've had GRIPAD for about a month now and I now find my self reaching for them instead of my other gloves.  GRIPAD is an amazing invention they take weight lifting gloves to a hole new level. Gone are the days of ill fitting gloves. Any woman knows how hard it is to get a good fitting pair of lifting gloves.  The fit of GRIPAD is just about perfect and there is no sizing required. No more blisters, no more calluses no more sweaty slippery palms they are easy to slip on and off. Allowing me to change to change from one exercise to the next with ease. Most importantly they help me to keep a good grip on my weights and sand bag. I also found that they help my hands get traction when doing push-ups and planks. GRIPAD is made of 100% neoprene material they provide the strongest most moisture-free, most slip-proof grip. They have a soft and flexible,  three finger loop design that leaves your thumb and little finger free so you have a great range of motion. This also gives you the ability to grip you weights with ease.  GRIPAD is the best pair of weight lifting gloves that I have ever tried. They sell on for $16.99 so the price is very affordable. I love that they come in several colors, Black, Blue, Red and Pink so there is a color choice for men and women.  GRIPAD gives you a good bang for your buck and they are now one of my must haves for working out.

Dial A Smile Teeth Whitening System 

Every mom wants one of those movie star gleaming white smiles. But like most moms I feel having it done at the dentist is just too expensive and time consuming.  I am teaching two kids and trying to keep a house up and running. I don't have time to hit the dentist office just to whiten my smile. Well this week my movie star white smile came to me in the mail. Yup I received a great little package from the Dial A Smile Professional Home Teeth Whitening system. Its called whitening Lightning its a professional home teeth whitening system. You get 3 treatments in the box and it says it will teeth 3-4 shades whiter in 20 minutes. You can find it hear  and if you use this coupon code  Juliekit at check out  you can get the kit for $69.00. its a lot cheaper than going to a dentist and I can do it in my house while the kids are working on a project or napping. 

Ok so whats in the box you get 1 paper shade dial, 1 dispensing tub, 1 hand held LED light, 1 gel syringe that contains 3
treatments, 3 teeth wipes, 1 applicator brush, and 3 vitamin E swabs. and some directions.

So basically you hold this shade guide up to your teeth and determine what shade your teeth are.  First you squeeze out 1.5ml of the whitening gel into the dispensing tub. Then you use one of the teeth wipes to dry all of your teeth using a circular motion. next you snap off the blue striped end of one of the vitamin e swabs and apply it to gums and inside of lips it helps to protect your lips and gums from the whitening gel. Next you use applicator brush and brush on a generous amount of the whitening gel to your teeth. You want to be sure to smile wide to limit how much gel gets on your lips and gums. Then you turn on the LED and hold it no more than 1-2 in from your mouth for 20 minutes. The directions also say that you can put it directly in your mouth but it may cause sensitivity so do what feels comfortable. So that's the short version of the directions. 

So this after I read the directions a couple times over I decide why not give it a try. I take the little shade dial in the bathroom and determine my teeth to be between a 4 and a 5. Next up is drying my teeth with the wipes this part was not so bad and went rather quickly. I applied the vitamin E swab trying to be sure I get my gums and lips covered good.  Next comes applying the gel. try to smile big and apply this stuff to my teeth really wasn't hard because HotRod Princess was standing next to me making faces and whose not going to smile at that.. I Opt to put the light in my mouth because honestly I can see my self holding this thing 1-2 inches from my mouth while i try to smile and help the girls do class work. I set the timer for 20 minutes. ....... and I wait and wait and wait. ok who knew 20 minutes could be this long right. I feel like a total goof ball walking around the house with this blue light in my mouth but hey the girls think its funny and kept making faces at me.  My 20 min is finally up I brush off the gel and bam my teeth are noticeably whiter about 2-3 shades. I am quite happy with it so I decided to store my other two applications in the fridge( the directions say I can do that) and use it at a later date. The company does recommend not eating or drinking anything that can stain your teeth with in 24 hours.  Results will vary and how long it last depends on what you eat and drink but that goes for whitening treatments done at dentist offices also. Its also not recommended for expectant or nursing moms.
