Leven Rose Rosehip Oil Review

Do you know about Rosehip Oil? 

This is the first review of organic oil I have ever done. I see a lot of bloggers and random people selling oils and telling all of us how good they are and what are all the benefits of using organic oils. I wanted to try it out for myself.  I will be honest, I don’t know anything about this oil so I had to do some research.

I swim a lot and the chemicals in the pool dry out my hair. In my research I found that a some people used it on hair. I used the rosehip oil on the ends of my hair. That is where is feels the driest.  the next day the ends of my long blonde locks where so soft. I didn't want to get my hair cut any more after that day. 

We came back from the water park today and after dinner when I sat down to relax I noticed my skin was very dry. I took a drop of the Rosehip oil and rubbed in onto my arms. The oil left my skin with a nice, soft, nourished feeling. My skin felt healthy. The next day when I woke up, I wished I had put in on my legs too. (laughing)

The oil has a light nutty smell and had a yellow tint. 

What do you use it for?

Wow how time is flying bye.

I have been toying around with the idea to doing sweeps again, but I think maybe this time for the last half of the year, I am going to try the winning at some blogger sites. Show some bloggers some love this summer season.

If you sweep just on blogger sites, Why do you like it? Do you prefer blogger hosted over company hosted giveaways?  The major reason I took a step back from sweeping was that I had made all these new friends and with in a month ONE person was saying another person cheated and it was just got ugly from that point. I am not sure what happened- or do I care. I was just in it to win it.

Now that I am getting back in I see the rules have changed. I guess that's life right?

I also went back to CROWDTAP. I had this great group of people that would comment and like and I guess because I stopped dong that- they all just disappeared. I am not sure how to take that, How would you?

If you CT let me know and I will follow you on your FB page.

Have a great JUNE everyone. School is out!!

When disasters happen- Do you have a plan?

Disasters are happening   

We see it going on in Texas right now with all the flooding. We see all the tornadoes touchdown, and I know it may not be a big deal, but I had a rumble in my jungle just the other day. Las Vegas had a small earthquake that I was not expecting AT ALL!   You know what it reminded me to do, update my emergency kit, make a phone tree and go over with my kids what to do if something bad should happen.

  • I started with a emergency contact chart.  Who calls who if we are not all together. 

  • INFORMATION you want to give to your contact.
  1.  Health Status. 
  2. Location.
  3. Are with any of your other family.
  4.  If you know you have to move from your location, where will you be going?
If the two youngest are in school, they wont let them out( at least I don’t think..I better check on that and so should you if you have a kid in middle school) unless a parent gets them in a disaster situation. My high schooler I believe is a different story don’t you agree?

The reason for just the out-of-town contact is that in a crisis your cell phone and local numbers may not work. Landlines and pay phones (if you can even find one now a days) may work and give you a better chance at reaching your contact.  That one contact person can be your lifeline and my lift the weight of dread off your shoulders so that you can tackle the task at hand. Getting your family back together.
  • My next plan to action is having a big, clean trash can ready with supplies in my garage. I have a family of 5, so A big container I feel is appropriate.  Inside the can I will have..

For my readers who have been in a disaster, do you think that I missed any thing?
