ConceiveEasy® TTC Kit™ First Thoughts

Hello Lovelies,

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted and I think it’s finally time to start back up and keep it going.  After all it’s one of my New Year’s Resolutions that got lost in the dust… never a better time like the present!

Well I have many reviews coming up some that are much older which I apologize for.  But the great thing about beauty and fashion is even though it’s ever changing many of the old fads or products still remain as some favorites.  Not to mention there’s so many people who have yet to hear about the common products as well.

But I wanted to touch bases on a subject that many women such as myself are rather sensitive or find the subject too sore to talk about.  It’s about infertility problems.  Some of which are possible to be treated and “cured” and others that are a permanent matter.  Though I feel that I’m still young at the mere age of 28, when it comes to infertility it’s the age of decisions and actions.

My fiancĂ© and I have been talking about the chances of us not being able to be parents in the future due to complications I suffered after an attack.  Though no one is ever truly ready and prepared for a child we’re prepared to start as a younger couple.

After trying for over 6 months now we’ve been frustrated and emotional.  Not to mention when you try to conceive or make it possible for you to later it’s a dip in your pockets.  This is when I did some research and found Conceive Easy TTC Kit.  I thought wow it’s 100% Drug Free, helps promote a regular cycle and not only help ovulate but also assist with several infertility problems.

It’s been 6 days since I ordered and though I paid for faster delivery it did fail short on this factor.  Though I’ve heard and read of others who have a 2 day delivery.  Never the less I’m just excited to see how it benefits me.  Make sure to call if you do need customer service as I submitted help through their form provided on the site 2 times and never received a response.  Some agents are pleasant however unfortunately I was not so lucky.  She seemed rather irritated at the fact that I called needing tracking assistance.

She insisted even after I opened my email to verify no tracking email had been received that one went out yesterday to me.  During my attempt to pass a note to their tech person for the site to not further inconvenience other customers the agent started to grow rude and cut me off.  So needless to say my first experience with customer service and shipping was not a good one.

Lets hope the site will allow me to submit a review or two later.  I’ll keep updating monthly on the product.  The kit pictured below comes with:

(quoted from ConceiveEasy’s site)

The TTC Kit contains your choice of (1) 20 Pregnancy or Ovulation tests, (2) a Basal Body Thermometer (BBT) to help you track when you ovulate, (3) a handy BBT chart and Getting Started Guide, and (4) ConceiveEasy 2-Month Starter Pack, an all-natural blend of ingredients to help boost your fertility

If you choose to continue after the 30-Day trial you do nothing and $39.95 will be charged to the original card for the 60-Day supply in the kit.  Continuing billing of $39.95 will continue every 2 months for a 60-Day supply’s worth.  You can cancel at anytime and just mail back the bottles even if it’s empty, but keep the free gifts.  The best part is it’s available to shipping outside of the United States!

If you scroll to the bottom of the site you’ll see in the last column 3 useful links to fertility, how to get pregnant faster and pregnancy tips and advice videos.  So take a look around and give it a try if you’re needing assistance as well.

Now just a disclaimer if you will about my reviews with ConceiveEasy TTC Kit I have not had a menstrual cycle since November 2011 and have been taking Safeway Care Prenatal Vitamins for a month and a half now.  I have stopped the Prenatal as of today, I’ll keep track of everything and post monthly unless a positive result occurs Smile

 

Have a Happy Hump Day!

Handbag Love

Hello Lovelies…

So I wanted to share with you my latest handbag obsession.  All thanks to my cousin-in-law Christina who gifted me with an early Christmas present!

She knows that I can be a label junkie but that I’ve always loved Dooney & Bourke, Coach, Chanel and LV handbags even if my budget didn’t allow it Smile I’m kind of a contradiction I’ll admit it, though I love the classics I tend to reach for bold patterns and items.

db

It is an older model of the two pocket tote design in the black signature design but I just love it and my cosmetic bag (though I admit I actually use it for discount coupons, business cards and other little tidbits.

My boyfriend bought me a large kangaroo keeper which ladies if you change purses as much as you should, we know how daunting it can be forgetting to transfer so many items here and there.  With the kangaroo keeper purse organizer it not only makes my new Dooney & Bourke bag neatly organized but also more functional with more pouches to find everything easier.

Definitely has become so handy it’s large enough to fit literally everything I need these winter days yet without becoming too bulky to carry around.  I have the small shoulder version in the exact same color and this just makes my collection complete.  Thanks so much Christina you’re an angel!

Now while we’re on the subject of handbags let me share an item off my wish list with you all.  Take a deep breath…

Isn’t the Tivoli PM one of the most beautiful handbags there ever was?!  LOL yes I am completely drooling over my keyboard right now.  They also have the Tivoli GM if you need something larger in this design.  I am going to work hard towards rewarding myself with this someday Smile

 

What’s your current obsession or dream handbag?

Hello Lovelies…
I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted and for that I am truly sorry.  So much change has been going on since I last posted.  I’ve relocated from Las Vegas to Seattle and I’m extremely happy to be with family and living with my boyfriend!  Long distance relationships can be so tiring so it’s great to finally be with each other permanently.
Now that I’m here I think it’ll give me a chance to really dive back into my fashion and beauty passions and get back to sharing that with you.  We will definitely keep going forward with the coupons/discounts, contests and giveaway finds because sharing is caring Smile

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday <3

Apologies...

Hello Lovelies,

I apologize for my lack of posting for over a month now.  April and May were really rough months for me so far this year.  Shortly after my last blog post my Mother took a turn for the worse.  She passed away the day before Mother's day, a month ago from tomorrow.  My Mother was my everything she raised me herself with of course help from friends and family, but she was my hero.

She always did enjoy learning new things from others.  Even though she would write in her own journal she loved to read blogs and what everyone had to say or felt about anything.  So Thank You all for supporting me so far and I promise after giving myself time to heal some I shall be back full force.  I have had the honor of trying a bundle of different products that I received as gifts or purchased for myself at a great price.  I will definitely have some reviews up when I can.

Though I probably will post sales and samples when I can since we all can use pick me ups especially this day in economy.

Love Always,

Tricia Ann

Love the Outfit

Hey Lovelies,


           
Forever 21 Color Block Knit Dress                             Montego Bay Plaid Slingback

          
Hematite Bangle Bracelet 6-Pack               KATHY Van Zeeland Belt Shopper



Today I felt like truly basking in the Spring spirit!  I put together a short sweet and yet simple outfit with some of my favorite things in my closet.  I have provided links where you can check out the items just click on the above pictures.  Please keep in mind some items may not be available anymore or you have to hunt for them since a few pieces are a couple of years old.  Otherwise if they are available it could be just in other color combos.  So if the items that the link provides isn't the same it should be very similar.

The only thing missing from the outfit that I wore were nude colored stockings.  What's great bout the Forever 21 dress above is that you can wear it with stockings, tights, leggings, skinny jeans, shorts or just paired with your fresh glowing legs all spruced up for the sun.  What I have always loved so much about Fashion is even though there are rules, they are challenged to be broken.  Express your unique personality and you can do no wrong.  All that matters is you feel great in what you look in.

Take for example the outfit I had on a few days ago was black leggings, layered green and white camisoles, brown corduroy jacket, brown ballet flats, champagne sterling silver studs with gold bangles.  It sounds bizarre to some mixing brown and black let alone how tacky it may seem with gold and silver.  But in all honesty it looked nice and sheik!  I will be sure to take a picture next time I have a similar situation in outfits but you all get the drift.

I hate forgetting to take pictures when you have a great outfit, face or hair-do all put together.  Don't you hate missing a kodak moment to capture memories?



Well I hope you enjoyed my simple outfit that I just adored wearing yesterday.  I would love to hear about any outfits or piece that just made you feel like the belle of the ball.  Perhaps a pairing of items or colors you thought even at one point in time were just strange together.
