Yonanas Review

Since the New Year I have wanted to be good and eat healthy but I have struggled after dinner. You know that time when you start craving something sweet and want dessert. Yeah I haven't been very good at refusing something sweet, I always think of the saying, "I have never met a piece of chocolate I didn't like". I also believe strongly that if you deny yourself that ice cream, frozen yogurt, piece of candy, dessert, etc., that you will eventually cave in and binge. So when I saw Yonanas I was curious. I was able to review the Yonanas and make my own Banana Ice Cream!
The Yonanas Machine doesn't take up too much space, it's smaller than your average blender. I decided to try the Simply Yonanas (Banana Ice Cream) recipe. All you need is two over ripe bananas, peel them and then freeze them for at least 24 hours. When you are ready to make your banana ice cream, take the bananas out about 5 minutes before. Add one banana at a time, then enjoy!!
This is my bowl of Simply Yonanas along with the Yonanas Machine. It was very easy to put the bananas in and to push them down. The banana ice cream is the consistency of a soft serve.
Here is a close up of the Simply Yonanas. After tasting it I realized I should have let my bananas brown some more, I was anxious and frozen them too soon. The Yonanas recipe book had said to freeze them when they have the brown spots all over, like a cheetah. My banana ice cream wasn't very sweet because I froze them too soon, so if you get a Yonana Machine follow the directions! :) After making the banana ice cream I decided to try using a bag of frozen strawberries and bananas. 
This is a close up of the Strawberry-Banana Ice Cream. It was a little sweeter. I am just happy that I will be able to enjoy dessert without all the guilt. The Yonanas comes with a recipe booklet filled with so many different types of recipes. There is even recipes to make pie! There are also recipes on the Yonanas website. This is truly a wonderful product! I cannot wait to create more desserts and experiment with different fruits.

Gillette Venus Embrace

If you're not familiar with the Gillette® Venus® Embrace® I am more than happy to share a few things that will make you want to try the Venus Embrace!
With 5 blades you are going to get a super close shave leaving your skin smooth. There is also the ribbon of moisture that surrounds the head of the razor so every stroke of the razor with be done with ease, no more nicks or cuts! The razor cartridges are easy to change and there is even a razor holder for your shower. If that all isn't enough to entice you to try the Venus Embrace, Gillette went a step further and made all Venus razor cartridges fit all Venus razor handles! No more having to purchase a whole new razor set, now just buy the refill to try all the other great Venus razors! 

I really like the Venus razor and give it 4 stars, I take one star off because I wish there was some way to make the moisture ribbon around the razor head last longer. Other than that I didn't find anything else negative about the Venus Embrace. I look forward to trying the other Venus razors now! 

For more information visit the Gillette® Venus® Embrace® website. 

*Disclosure: I received my Gillette® Venus® Embrace®  razor complimentary from Influenster.

Cosmo VoxBox Review

I received the Cosmo VoxBox and was immediately surprised to see the cool variety of things that were sent to me! I was really impressed that it wasn't just a couple of small things that were thrown in. Here is what was included in my Cosmo VoxBox.
I have to point out the Gillette Venus razor. Gillette has really outdone themselves, they made this razor so that any Venus refill blade will fit on this handle. No more purchasing a new razor set every time I want to switch the type of blade I want to use! I really love this and if that wasn't enough they also sent a $2 off coupon. My next favorite item are the Pilot Frixion Erasable Pens. Now I have to hide these pens because everyone loves them in my house. The Frixion is really erasable and the ink flows freely from the pen.

I also received the Forever Red by Bath & Body Works. This perfume is sweet and the lovely scent lasts longer than most perfumes I have tried in the past. My daughters now like to use this before going to school, they have been told how good the perfume smells. The last item was the Ghirardelli Sea Salt Escape candy bar. This is a milk chocolate bar with sea salt and roasted almonds. I have to be honest it wasn't my favorite but my Mom the chocolate connoisseur of the house enjoyed it. 

I absolutely loved receiving the Cosmo VoxBox and look forward to reviewing many more if I am able to.

My 500th Post!!

Today I celebrate my 500th post on One Mom's Moxie! I wanted to make this post a little more personal and make sure to thank all of my readers for making One Mom's Moxie a success!! I will be having some giveaways coming up and many new reviews. I haven't posted much this week since my computer was down, or so I thought. I have been working on my computer through safe mode with networking for about a month. Then my husband comes and switches a couple cables in the back and WHAM!!! It's fixed! Thank you Rene for fixing the computer and taking some stress away!

Another unfortunate thing is the horrific toothache I am suffering through. I am going to make a dentist appointment but wouldn't you know I am in this much pain and it's a three day weekend! Just my luck!

One more thing, today is my dearest friend Julie from Emptynester Reviews, birthday today! If you can go over and wish her a "Happy Birthday!". Since it will be the weekend I say it's her birthday all weekend!

Thanks again for making One Mom's Moxie a success, without all of you there wouldn't be a 500th post!! 

XOXOXO~ Elizabeth

Iscream {Awesome} Product Review

I am so excited to share with you all this great company website called Iscream. I was given the opportunity to review a few things from the website. Let me just say they carry a variety of fun and creative products. While looking through the website I was just as excited as my daughters, I could have happily taken one of everything! They have so many products that are decorated with different candy brands, like Airheads, Gummy Bears, Peeps and Lollipops.  
When I received my box I wasn't sure what was being sent to me since I was told to send them a list of things I would like to review. It was such a hard decision. The first thing I pulled from the box were the super cute Hot Chocolate Poly Plush Pants. These are so soft and very well made. I honestly have not one complaint about them, well maybe one, I want a pair in my size! 
The nest item was this Gummy Bear Pillow. On one side is pink and the other blue. My daughter absolutely loves her new pillow. Once again it is another quality item that is very well made and filled with microbeads. I have no worries about her tearing the pillow open or being too rough with it. 
These Candy Swirl Shoelaces are adorable. My daughter is now searching for the perfect shoes to put them in! These seem like they are stronger than your regular pair of shoelaces, I'm not sure why though. They are 100% polyester. 
The last item that we received was this cute Dum Dums Smile Giant Eraser. This is definitely a giant eraser at 4 inches by 4 inches. It's heavy duty and my oldest daughter loves it too. I am so happy that I was able to review these products from Iscream, I love that they have collections to choose from so you can get anything from a backpack to a bookmark. I think any one of their items would be a great gift for any occasion, but since Valentine's Day is coming up you should check out their Valentines! You can also follow Iscream on Twitter and like them on Facebook.

New Year, New Changes! Great Things to Come...

Happy New Year to all of my awesome readers! It's been too long since I wrote a personal post so I figured with the New Year I will (try to) post something weekly that has to do with me personally. Since it's a New Year I have also decided to make some changes on One Mom's Moxie. I have big plans for the year ahead and want you all to feel free to send me suggestions, products you would like to see reviewed or even certain product in a giveaway. You can email me at OneMomsMoxie@gmail.com or send a message to me on Facebook

I hope you all had a safe and wonderful New Year. I spent mine with my family. My girls and I painted nails, played games and ate brownies. It was nice to have some family time. Unfortunately I woke up sick on the first day of 2013! I am not letting it keep me down though. My daughter and son made a cake (see above) and I wanted to show off their baking and decorating skills. It was very sweet and yummy!

Well, keep an eye out for the weekly flash giveaways from the great group I am a part of called Pay It Forward. There is a flash giveaway at least 3 times a week, sometimes more. And please bear with me as I make changes to the One Mom's Moxie page. it's time for a new look! Thank you all for your support and reading One Mom's Moxie, I truly appreciate every one of my readers!
