Bead Hauling at Michael’s

I started making bracelets several years ago and I definitely don’t regret it at all! It’s a great therapeutic way to regain your focus and stress.  Michael’s has everything when it comes to jewelry making! I like to go when they have coupons and sales.  The current sale that is going on is 3 for $9.99 for ALL beads! Now if you are a bead addict like me, then you know this is a great sale! LOL! I had a very hard time deciding what three colors I should get to make more bracelets, but the sale ends on November 2nd, so I definitely will be going back to buy other colors and styles especially with my coupon I have to save money!

I saw an angel pattern I really love so I decided to get a strand of that and other purple beads to blend in when I make about two or three bracelets.  Awesome huh? I make Breast Cancer bracelets as well in honor of my grandmother who passed away from breast cancer back in 2012.

I have made earrings as well, but bracelets I enjoy making more.  The breast cancer bracelet is called “The Catherine Britton Breast Cancer Bracelet”  One day I want to sell 1k and donate half to the local breast cancer foundation.  I really want to partner with a local chapter or an event where I can sell my customized bracelet.  I will have a video in the next few posts of me making a bracelet that will be uploaded to my You Tube page as well.  Stay tuned!

Skin Care Product Reviews: The World of Nivea, CeraVe and Dove

How many of you know the importance of having a clear and hydrating skin?  I have tried over the years various of face cleanser products since I have sensitive and dry skin.  I tried Clean N Clear, but it left my face feeling tight and dry and I think my face was a little allergic to it.  I just decided not to use any cleansers on my face for awhile and just wash my face with warm water to see how it does.  Then I started using dove beauty bar to wash my face some mornings and every night especially when I wear make up.  

 

I haven’t tried the Hydrating cleanser, but I will in the near future.  This facial wash goes on really smooth and it leaves my face feeling moist and hydrated.  I can definitely feel the difference between the clean and clear brand and CeraVe brand.  I definitely recommend this brand if you are looking for a good facial wash to use.  We finally have a winner! 

I definitely wanted to try this type of dove soap since I’m always using the pink one and the original.  I grew up using Dove soap ever since I was an infant.  It is so good for your skin and it smells really good!  Now the Dove exfoliating soap smells really good too and it leaves your skin feeling renewed! It even makes my bathroom smell good! I will highly recommend any Dove products.  When it gets really cold, your body gets a little dehydrated and it requires extra moisture on your skin. 

 

Another product I’ve been using for awhile is Nivea.  Actually my dad introduced me to that brand because other lotions I was using wasn’t giving me enough moisture to my body.  I have been using Nivea products for about two years now and I love every moment of moisturizing my skin, hand and feet. 

 

This 48-hour body lotion is really good and I like the fact it has Shea butter in it.  I use Shea butter on my hair as well.

Looking for a reliable hand creme? Nivea Creme does wonders for your hands! Especially in the winter months, it gets the job done.  It’s made small so you can keep it in your car or purse.

 

Nivea Soft smells AMAZING and I enjoy smelling this scent every morning.  The big jar I use on my feet every morning along with Vaseline and Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa foot cream.  Sometimes I will use it on my skin as well.  The tube I use just on my hands and I keep that in my purse and on my desk at work.  I lotion my hands every time I wash my hands so the moisture doesn’t disappear throughout the day.  You can purchase these products at Wal-Mart, any drug store or even Target.  Oh yeah, Amazon carries them as well!

Five Things You Can’t Live Without

There are a lot of things that you can’t live without such as money, water, food, your cellphone of course and others.  Tell me your top five things that you can’t live without below in the comments.  For now, I will just list my top five things that I can’t live without and I hope you feel the same way.

  Sweets– I have a serious sweet tooth that desires a lot of sweets such as Little Debbie cakes and some candies.  Now my favorite sweet is the soft chocolate chip cookies.  To be honest, I can eat a whole tray in a day.  I know that it isn’t good to do that, but sometimes I can’t help it thinking about the sweet chocolate taste.  Sounds good doesn’t it?

   Chips: Yeah I know what you are thinking.  Her whole list will be food. LOL But actually it won’t be.  Lately I have been craving Ruffles or Lays original chips.  Just last week I ate about two bags a day and my stomach wasn’t really all that excited.  But now I am trying to cut back on how many bags I eat a day.  Like right now while I’m typing this post, I have a small bag of Doritos next to me on my desk.  That will be my only bag of chips today.  

 

     Money– I don’t care what anyone else says, you can’t live without money! It’s what you pay your bills with, your car note, buy groceries with and etc.  How can you buy a house or rent an apartment without having money? Even though I’m guilty of spending money on things I don’t need, we all still need it. 

    Family– If you have family, then be grateful because some people don’t have family to rely on and to depend on.  I am grateful for my parents, grandparent and close aunts and uncles.  That is something I definitely can’t live without. 

   Clothes and Shoes– ( I know that’s two items but they go hand in hand LOL) I have so many clothes and shoes that I got to have because it’s part of my style.  I don’t want to be naked or barefooted all the time, so clothing and shoes is a must! Don’t you agree readers?

Please email me at theriverzgurlbrand@outlook.com for your top five list of things you can’t live without.  I would love to hear your responses.  Also I will respost them in the next blog post called “My followers and readers Top Five”
