 The 3-Step Complexion Perfection System…
 Skin care has been revolutionized with “Amazingly Beautiful” the world’s first “skin supplement”. 
It actually feeds your skin what it needs in order for it to be luminous, beautiful and healthy. 
 We know that it is unconventional to apply oil to your skin, but we guarantee you will have the best 
skin of your life by following these simple instructions:
 Step 1 – APPLY 
· Your skin recognizes Amazingly Beautiful as food and therefore will be hungry for it and may require 
more drops initially.
· Place 2 to 3 drops on each cheek 1-2 times daily and gently spread over the entire face with your 
middle finger in a circular motion. Do not rub in.
· If there is any excess after 3 minutes, blot your face with a tissue or damp cloth. There shouldn’t be 
any excess, so if this happens you may be using too much product.
· When used as a make-up remover, place 1-2 drops on a Q-tip or cloth and wipe away make up.
Step 2 – DETOX
Your skin is probably used to name-brand products made from creams, chemicals, and other 
toxic ingredients that give your skin results, but by shocking your skin into submission.
If you’ve used makeup or commercial skin care products for any length of time, your skin is 
probably clogged and burdened with the build-up of excess oils and environmental junk that 
comes from the ingredients in these products. Amazingly Beautiful takes about 30 days to 
detoxify your skin from these chemicals and ingredients so that your skin can thrive naturally. 
Results vary for each person.
What to expect during detoxification…
Within the first 30 days of using Amazingly Beautiful, you may experience a brief blemish breakout. 
This typically lasts from 1-2 days, possibly up to a week. The botanical oils in Amazingly Beautiful 
gently and naturally remove toxins and build up that have accumulated over time from the use of 
chemical-laden skincare products and cosmetics. These botanical ingredients also help remove the 
cause behind excessive oil production. If a breakout does occur, this is actually a really good sign, 
as your skin will be ridding itself of toxins that have built up over time. It’s important not to get 
discouraged during this brief detoxifying period, because once it ends, your skin will emerge with 
a more beautiful, young looking, radiant appearance. Results vary for each person. 
Step 3 – THRIVE
While most people experience noticeable changes within a few days, even greater benefits are 
achieved in the first 3 months, and then with continued use thereafter. Amazingly Beautiful will 
take the place of anti-aging creams, cleansers firming creams, exfoliaters, moisturizers, day/night 
creams, make-up removers, body lotions, nutrient pacts and more.

Tips on how to Prepare your Fireplace for the Season

Don’t Play With Fire This Winter 

Whether you have a wood burning or gas fireplace it is important to properly prepare them for the fall and winter seasons to ensure both their functionality and your safety.

Napoleon Fireplaces ( have provided some helpful tips to consider when preparing your fireplace for the season. Most of the simple inspections and cleaning can be done by the average homeowner, however, if you have any doubt at all, contact your local fireplace installer or chimney sweep. 

Wood Burning:

·                     Have the chimney cleaned before starting your wood burning fireplace, stove or insert. The leading cause of fires from wood burning appliances is the result of creosote (unburned fuel) that has accumulated in the chimney. 

·                     Have any gasket material inspected and replaced as required, such as the gasket sealing the door, the door glass and in some cases the ash dump. If an airtight appliance is operated without these gaskets effectively sealing the openings, excess air can leak into the firebox creating an over fire condition, which may permanently damage the appliance.

·                     Clean the blower if your wood burning appliance is equipped with one.  Unlike your furnace blower, these blowers do not have a filtering system to prevent the buildup of dust and hair on the blower. 

·                     Replace any broken or deteriorated brick lining in the wood burning appliance. While cracks in the lining are not a concern, if the brick lining is deteriorated to the point that the steel body is exposed, the heat from the fire can cause permanent damage to the appliance.
·                     Replace the batteries and test any smoke or carbon monoxide detectors you have in your home to ensure these defense monitors are operating properly.

Gas Burning:

·                     Have the appliance serviced by a qualified technician. A properly maintained fireplace can look as new as the day it was installed and a proper cleaning can help prevent permanent damages from occurring. Even the glass must be cleaned annually to keep it looking clear. Although gas fireplaces appear to be maintenance free, like a car engine, these combustion systems are affected by problems such as dust and insects which will impair performance. The airways of both the pilot and main burners should be regularly cleaned to ensure that they are operating correctly and a general inspection of the entire system including the safety controls is also beneficial. 

·                     Clean the blower if your gas burning appliance is equipped with one. Unlike your furnace blower, these blowers do not have a filtering system to prevent the buildup of dust and hair on the blower. As the dust accumulates on the blower blades, the balance of the blower will change causing premature wearing of the bearings. The dust also insulates the motor; preventing it from being cooled and can eventually cause the motor to cease up.

·                     Replace the batteries in any optional remote transmitters and in some cases, in the receiver as well. Even when not being used the power held in a battery is slowly depleted.

·                     Replace the batteries and test any smoke or carbon monoxide detectors you have in your home to ensure these defense monitors are operating properly.

Home security tips for after-school safety


With school now in session, many children may be coming home to an empty house and as a parent, there are several precautions you can take to ease your worries while they’re home alone.

Weiser, manufacturers of innovative, high quality and secure door locksets, recommend simple, common sense home security when it comes to keeping your home safe.

On average, more than 50 percent of home break-ins are through an unlocked door,” said Steve Kolobaric, Marketing Manager, Weiser. “Keeping your door locked is an easy step you can take, whether you’re inside or outside of the house. With a few other proactive steps, you can add an additional layer of security and comfort for you and your children.”
Weiser suggests the following security tips to help keep your home safe this September when your kids are coming home after school: 

Stay in touch - Ask your children to check in as soon as they arrive home or leave the house.  Staying connected, despite the distance, ensures that you know their whereabouts at all times and they know you’re always just a phone call, email or text message away.

Install a keyless door lock - A lockset that doesn’t require a key, which can be easily lost, makes your children’s lives easier. The SmartCode 10 Touchscreen lets you or your children into the house by inputting an easy four to eight digit code, while the Kevo Smart Lock can open the door with a smartphone. If your child doesn’t have a smartphone, you can put a Kevo key fob in his or her backpack, which will allow them to simply touch the keyhole to open the door.

Have a routine
- When your child comes home, make sure they turn on the lights and make it look like someone is home. Burglars like unoccupied homes so ifthey see that someone is around they are more likely to move along. It’s also important to talk to your children in advance about what to do when the phone rings or if someone comes to the door. 

Lock up items not friendly for kids - Make sure chemicals, cleaners, tools, razor blades and other items not kid-friendly are not left out in the open or get locked away. Consider using a Smartkey Padlock to lock up these dangerous objects, or tokeep your valuables safe from unwelcomed home visitors. The padlocks are bump proof and pick resistant, protect against pry and hammer attacks as well assawing and cutting so when no one is home, the items will remain safely locked up and secure.

Keep kids connected - Post a list of important numbers by the telephone, including parents’ work and cell phone, the doctor's office and a neighbor or a nearby relative who can comeover to help your children quickly if they need it.

Lock up – Before leaving the house in the morning, make sure all doors and windows, including those on the second floor, are locked. If you have a sliding backdoor, place a rod in the track to keep it securely closed. If you have an alarm system, practice arming and de-arming it with your children. Most burglars are looking for an easy target when the homeowner isn’t home and the best line of defense is simply keeping your home locked up.

Hoover Floormate Steamscrub Review

Running a household can be a challenge even for just a couple or small family, when you have a family as wild and crazy as mine with a mini backyard farm things can get very messy. I need products that not only clean but can destroy all the nasty germs that all the small creatures create. The Hoover Floormate Steamscrub does that and much more.

This bad boy does windows, carpets, floors, and every nook and cranny in between. I have done my laminate flooring and it works fantastic and I used it on the grout in my bathroom and it turned out amazing.  

This has to be one of the most versatile and useful products I have ever used in my household cleaning. If your looking for a multi functioning mop that exceeds expectations than this is the product for you. Look for it in your local Walmart, Home Hardware, as well as many other Hoover dealer locations.
