Does IT really Work

So I started something new on the path of acheiving myideal body. It is called the Ulimate body Applicator and it uses very potent botanicals to stimiulate the release of toxins and shrink fat cells. Thats right shrink fat cells and beyond that its a home party business. So I was curious and was determined to see if it really worked. I contacted a site on the web and very soon a young lady met me at my house to wrap me.

A little bit about Detox and why its important. If you have toxic fat (you most likely do if you have cellulite) it will NOT release the fat. Toxins caused by unnatural ingredients in our food, drinks, as well as those from smoking and heavy drinking. There are other factors not listed. When something enters the body the body doesn't know how to process it stores it in the fat and then will not release it. This is why some people work out and get discouraged seeing little to no results after a long time. When you detox and there are many ways, the body starts to release these toxins they move and leave the system. This product is supposed to contour the body through this process.

Prior to meeting she told me i HAD to be regular, as in bowel movements as that is one of the ways that the body detoxes. This meant 1-2 bowel movements a day depending on food consumption up to 3 or 4. I needed to drink 6-8 glasses of water and 2 more for every beverage I had besides water. No substitutions on those 6-8 glasses of water. If I could not meet these requirements I was wasting her time and would not be satisfied with the results. The cost was about 25$ to try one in my home. They tend to range 25-30 before shipping unless you are a loyal customer.

The prep: I was sure to shower before my wrap. Avoiding Dove, and other beauty bars on the area I wanted to wrap. I also did not put on lotion or other moisturizers.

The process: It was very simple. She measured me in three spots: at the Naval, 3 inches above, and 3 inches below. She marked me in the places so I knew exactly where to measure because measurements can vary just an inch in each direction. She took my before picture below farthest left. She then sprayed me with witch hazel. Right after, cut the pouch and removed the
applicator, unfolded it and put it on me lotion side smoothing it down against my skin. Then she wrapped me snugly but not too tight in saran wrap. Finally we sat and chatted for about an hour. While we conversed I drank 2 large glasses of water.
It was non pressure just friendly, a nice chat with the girlfriend. The wrap was tingly, it got cold and then warm. Felt almost like a massage. After emptying my bladder we remeasured and took a picture. I had only lost a little over an inch but was AMAZED at how much my skin had lifted 2nd pic.

Over the three
days I drank the water and changed nothing else (although I would have avoided soda if I drank it to begin with.) I saw some improvement but not great and I decided to wrap gain. This time on my own and stared at my body in shock not only had I lost 8 inches but my belly had been tightened, toned, and firmed up. My body transform. I took a pic on the 1st day of the 2nd wrap and again at 24 and 72 hours.

Pros: easy, mess free, and works fast. As a loyal customer it is fairly inexpensive as well. When compared to a tummy tuck, laser treatments, and like treatments. Works well with an exercise program or stand alone. They have other great products that work in a synergy together and help if you personally are having a problem getting your body to detox.

Cons: Must be able to detox. This is a crucial component to health. If you have a highly toxic lifestyle you would be better off trying the greens or another like product and then wrapping.

This product is the closest thing to magic I have seen. It really worked for me. I am not a saint when it comes to my diet but I moved from a almost 20 to a almost 14 in three weeks. My pics are below. i loved this product so much I chose to carry it in my line on YummyU. The key I think is the bodies ability to use the ingredients to detox the fat cells shrinking them and releasing fat as well as toning and tightening the skin.

Far left is my before
Second is 1 hour after taking off the wrap
Third is first day of my second wrap 1 week after the first one.

Far left is at 24 hours into the 2nd wrap and second one is 48 and last is my before until now.

You can choose to try it for yourself and as long as your body does not have a heavy toxicity there is no reason you shouldn't see results like I did. Results of course will vary and mine aren't nearly the best i have seen.

A side note: If you are irregular or high toxicity. I strongly recommend the Greens or Ganoderma Tea both available on my website at

The No No

Before I go to the review let me say. I purchased this item myself, I was not paid for this review.

The claim is that you can use the No-No to replace expensive laser hair removal with this little device that eventually will render the product useless because the hair will quit growing altogether. They have a unique offer because if you try the product a FULL 60 days they will refund ALL your money including the shipping. The trick is you have to make ALL payments in that time. So I took the plunge and ordered the product.

How it works:
You run the NO NO device along the area that you want to lose hair. The hair has to be short (similar to waxing). It crystalizes the hair so when you buff it away it takes the hair at the root and it theory this sounds like an amazing idea.

My review is mixed. It seemed to work beautifully on my arms and legs. It took the hair off easily and despite the burning smell it was relatively painless. The issue I had with it was when I tried to use on the face, bikini (forget any other intimate areas) and like areas. It didn't seem to catch the hair right and just wouldn't get the whole root in those areas. So that was disappointing. With the price tag attached nearly 300.00 didn't seem worth it for the areas that didn't work as well.

Bonus was that upon returning the product ALL of my money including shipping was refunded promptly with no incident. So while this product did not fit my needs the customer service was top notch.

Pros: worked in some areas (legs and arms, belly, chest), true money back guarantee

Cons: did not work on more intimate areas

Bottom line This is one I would encourage each person to try for themselves if it works for YOU, because the company seems very trustworthy that they stick to their word and stand behind their product. As long as you can afford the trial, it is worth trying.

Shark Navigator attacks Dirt and everything else!

Merry Christmas to me indeed. I received the Shark Navigator and I couldn't wait to try it out. I felt I couldn't write this review right away because it wouldn't be a true experience of the product and I aim to give full transparency. I love to spread the word about new products if they are effective and not a waste of money, however you can only know that if you use it for a while. Does it hold up under pressure and nothing rivals the pressure of turning coal to diamonds than my kids. They are wonderful loving children and they are also destructive with a capital D. So in the interest of full disclosure I will say I got the Shark for Christmas 2010. I have owned it for one year.

First Impression:

The navigator is light, compact for the most part and very durable. The suction power is amazing, it slurped up my daughters sock much to her dismay, without missing a beat. I own a kirby too and they are bulky, expensive and VERY heavy. I am not The Rock how am I could I lug it up and down the stairs? No problem with the navigator. My daughter or son could easily vacuum the house safely. One less chore for mom huh? That in itself is a bonus.

Lasting Impression:
After owning it for one year I can say it holds true to its word. I haven't had any loss of suction and even with the terrors I call kids its still in one piece. When I watch the informercials I always think , "yeah right when am I ever going to do that"? I will never need to vacuum up nuts, bolts, paper clips, a whole box of cereal on the floor, legos, etc. Right? Well wrong and the unbelievable thing was it picked all of that up and more. Saved me hours on clean up in some cases and all for under the 200.00 I paid for it. When this one dies I will most certainly buy another it is a stellar product.

Pros: NO bags can't stress that enough, no extra cost. Price, its very reasonable. light weight, and the suction is very powerful.

Cons the only I see is that hubby didn't get me the removable canister..:P

Absolutely! This vacuum hasn't wavered even slightly in the last year, it has cut my cleaning time down and made my life much easier, especially now that the kids can vacuum up their own messes. Best of all I don't have to be Hercules to have a clean upstairs too.

Stay tuned I have more products being reviewed this week including.

Sensa, Eggies and a couple surprises. Follow my blog for a chance to win prizes.

Remember don't buy it unless Gizmom has Tried it.

Magic Jack for Iphone

Most carriers allow you to call mobile to mobile at no additional charge, however if you call landlines your calls eat up your minutes. Enter magic jack. This nifty app that can be downloaded for free at the app store allows you to use wifi or your 3G connection to make FREE calls to ANY phone in the US. International rates are really low too. The neatest thing was for two weeks I did not have any carrier connected to my Iphone, however I was able to make phone calls through the hotspot of my husband's phone without any problems. If I was at Starbucks I could call once connected to their network. This makes calling truly unlimited if you have the data. Personally I think it works best on Sprint, because data is unlimited so i wasn't using my minutes to call anyone once I was signed up in a spanking new contract. It will allow me to stay well below my monthly minutes and still stay in touch with my customers.

How you do it:
Download the app on the app store on your IPHONE and either keep your number if you have magic jack or choose a new one at no charge. So simple it literally took me less than 5 minutes to sign up and my phone that had only wifi was making calls.

Have a great night and join me next time when I review I few new products. I will also take requests.

is Square Squared away?

This is an extension of our Kids and Biz blog. over time i will try the gadgets and apps that you want to try but do not want to have to fork over the bucks to see ifnthey really work.

Square card reader is a wonderful product so far that its been great. Compare to the other options that we have as small business owners I think this is an answer to our pro
verbial prayers. First its free! Unless you're like me an very impatient and dont want to wait for them to ship it to you. You can go to Best Buy and purchase for 10.00 a little starter kit and it comes with a card that will credit 10.00 to your account. You will get a little inch square that you will use to take payments. It fits in the ear piece section of your phone and once you do a simple sign up you can almost
instantly take credit cards. Automatically the money is sent to your bank account and within a couple d
ays you have your money.

Best part: NO MERCHANT ACCOUNT NEEDED! This way you are only paying for the time you are ACTUALLY making money.

Pros: Easy to transport. Works with Android and Iphone. No merchant account.
FREE and the transaction is only 2.75% no limit unless its not swiped.

NO monthly fee this is a big one because Merchant accounts charge 19.95+ per month whether you have a single sale or not.

Cons: I have had a hard time finding cons for this. Other than it seems to work best with Apple products (I love them!) if you want the register and printer. If you are fine on a tablet or phone Android works.
If you do large volume online or over the phone this may cause problems with the payout as they hold anything over 1000.00 for 30 days.

Conclusion: Overall this is the BEST thing I have seen for merchants to have a hassle free way to accept credit cards. Its safe, effective, easy and without extra cost. Personally, I love the square and can't wait to see what they come up with next.

Check back with us next time I will be reviewing a new app I found for Iphones only.
