So, I am not sure how everyone else feels, but me and my hubby feel that our cell phone bill is ridiculous. I mean it is a family plan which is to be cheaper and then we only pay for a certain amount of texting and we do have internet and we still pay out the but to have our cell phone's. I mean when you are paying almost $200.00 a month for your cell phone and the features it is just ridiculous. Wouldn't it be nice to find a way to cut that cell phone in half or well even more? Plus, something that offer's you all the bells and whistles without the two year contract and pay like your cell phone is made out of gold. Straight Talk 2 has everything you need or want.
Can you just imagine what you would do with all the extra money that you would have a month? Oh, for me I could do a lot with the extra money me and hubby could have a nice date night a month, I could get my nails done, take the kids to the movies honestly the possibilities are endless. With unlimited money service only costing $45.00 a month and including; calls, texting, picture texting, and even the internet that there is a hook, line and sinker for me for sure. Plus, you don't have to worry about a contract, activation fee, or a termination fee, which is another great deal.
If you want to call a friend or family member in another country Straight Talk 2 has a way to help with that too. Straight Talk International Long Distance Service is a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates. I personally know a lot of people who would find this very helpful in their lives.
Another great thing that I really love and I am sure most are wondering how much are the phones? Well don't worry because, reconditioned phones are available from $10.00 with camera, mp3 player, mobile web access, and blue-tooth capability. Along with the great deal they also have some really great features which is a big deal for me. They have amazing smart phones; touch screen phones, and app capable phones with features like voice navigation, camera, video recorder, music player, instant messaging, and Bluetooth.
One thing I would love to pass on to you is something that I am sure most of us do all the time anyway. Do plenty of research that way you can find the phone and plan that best fits your needs and wants.

SkinJoy Foaming Cleanser to review I was really excited to try something new and see if there is a new product that will be on my counter to deal with makeup that won't come off of my face and well keep it looking great too.
One thing that we all need and have to have in our lives is a Shampoo and Conditioner that works great. But, sometimes when we get shampoo's and conditioners for our hair it isn't always safe for our hair. With so many harmful ingredients I am always looking for something that works great plus is healthy for my hair. Also, with us trying to use more and more natural products in our home having natural products for our hair is just another great way to continue on our way of having everything natural. Bioken offers hair care products for what ever needs you are you wanting for your hair and it is a natural way to take care of your hair too.

During this time I have been filling in for my mom at the office where her and my dad work. I have had to work a 8-4 job which I am able to take the kids which isn't bad. But, the down side I don't have any internet service there so I haven't been able to keep up. Plus, let me say I haven't worked outside the home for over five years and I am really so exhausted, mentally and physically. I mean I know I do everything inside and outside at my home and every thing in between but I forgot what it was like to do all of my house duties, work and take care of the kids. I am BEAT! This weekend I am going to be catching up on my house and hopefully I can get some reviews/giveaways up for you all!
Again I am so sorry, but I am back!
