Another OZ Naturals anti-aging beauty find for my aging skin! OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol serum contains clinical strength retinol, astaxanthin, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E- important ingredients with antioxidants that promote collagen production and minimizes wrinkles and fine lines. When applying the serum to my face the first time I could instantly feel it firming my face. I could feel the light tingling sensation from the active ingredients. My forehead and brow furrow is my problem area. The serum helped firm this area. What I also love about OZ Naturals besides being natural and organic is that they are Cruelty Free and Made in the USA. I've tried so many expensive and over rated anti-aging products containing useless shiny and glittery fillers with 'meh' results. It was really eye opening finding so many quality effective beauty products on Amazon at half the price of over-rated, over the counter beauty products. I received this complimentary bottle of serum from OZ Naturals from BrandBacker in exchange for my honest opinion. Sponsored post.

The NEW Evolution Fresh Greek non-fat Yogurt inspired by Dannon was the first Greek yogurt I have ever had with fruit inside. Wholesome fruit you can see at the bottom of the cup without any artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors. It makes the perfect breakfast but I also eat them for snacks. I was just diagnosed as pre-diabetic so I need healthy satisfying snacks. It's a must for me because I'm a late-night snacker. Jello gets so old and boring after awhile. Evolution is rich, thick, and most importantly satisfying and has probiotic health benefits to boot. Pineapple Passion Fruit and Black Cherry are my favorite flavors. You got to try them all. You can find them at Ralph's and most Kroger stores. I'm a huge fan of Kroger and all their healthy store brand selections. I received my complimentary Evolution Fresh Greek Yogurt for being a BzzAgent

Joy William's new solo album (out June 29th) titled, VENUS is the something new I've been craving for. Every album has a mood and I guess that's why VENUS resonated with me. The mood in Joy's words is, "Acceptance. Transcendence. Trans-formation. Letting go of things that don’t serve you." This is a relatable and introspective "womens" album. I identified with several of the songs on the album like, "Until the Levee," "One Day I Will," and "Before I Sleep." Every song flows nicely into one another. They are reflective.... like reading someone's journal. My other favorites are, "Welcome Home," "The Dying Kind," "Sweet Love of Mine, and "Woman (Oh Mama)" ... a great song! Joy has a pretty voice, intense, emotional, and melodic. She was part of a four time folk rock Grammy winning duo, The Civil Wars. "It’s my coming-of-age album, becoming the woman I’ve always wanted to be. I think over the course of the last couple of years making this album, I finally felt that I stepped into my own skin. I’ve spent my whole life trying to be the best version of myself, and I’ve finally let myself just be me." Joy Williams The Official Joy William's Website, Joy can be found at Facebook, YouTube, and Intagram. Check out her music at iTunes and Amazon. DISCLOSURE: I participated in the Joy William's Venus album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.

Madonna's new album "Rebel Heart" was just released March 10 and is on iTunes. I was given the opportunity to listen to her new release. My first impression was, "Madonna's still going strong! There's a lot of intensity and variety on this album." There are collaborations with Nicki Manaj, Nas, Kayne West, Mike Tyson, and Chance the Rapper. The long list of producers are Madonna, Kayne West, Blood Diamonds, Billboard, Avicci, DJ Dahi, Ryan Teddler, Toby Gad, and Ariel Rechtshald, most I haven't heard of but made for a huge production. Madonna said of the album, “Rebel Heart explores two very distinct sides of my personality, the rebellious renegade side of me and the romantic side of me.” It's romantic, funky, wild, sometimes steamy and rebellious. Besides the first hits, Rebel Heart and Living for Love, my favorites are the slower songs. I like Ghosttown, Messiah, Hold Tight, Wash All Over Me, Veni Vidi Vici, Best Time, Joan of Arc, and Inside Out. Iconic is a good jam, it's catchy. It's a album I played over and over again. I can hear all of these songs being played at clubs, fashion shows, and parties. It's for all the night owls. Rebel Heart Track List 01 “Living For Love” 02 “Devil Pray” 03 “Ghosttown” 04 “Unapologetic Bitch” 05 “Illuminati” 06 “Bitch I’m Madonna” (Feat.

After hearing about all the healthy benefits of eating steel oats I finally got the opportunity to try them. I received the cranberry and blueberry Quaker 3 minute cut oats. They were better than I expected, very hearty, and flavorful. I always had the misconception that steel oats were stale and bland but that wasn't the case. This is possibly the healthiest breakfast you can eat, heart healthy with anti-oxidants. Great for maintaining your weight and lowering cholesterol. I'm making these part of my morning routine. I received these for free for my honest review because I'm a BzzAgent.
