McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin Review and Giveaway

Have you tried McDonald's new Egg White Delight McMuffin yet?  
McDonald's breakfasts have long been a family favorite.  Now that McDonald's has added egg whites and white cheddar to their breakfast menu I am an even bigger fan.  I can have egg whites and white cheddar on all my favorite breakfast sandwiches or opt for egg whites instead of scrambled eggs on my breakfast platter orders.  Yep, that's right you can have egg whites and white cheddar on any of your fave McDonald's breakfast sandwiches or egg whites instead of scrambled eggs on your breakfast platters.  Yummy!
The Egg White Delight McMuffin is only 250 calories and still has the delicious, lean Canadian bacon but this muffin has 8 grams of whole grain.  Oh, it's a delicious way to start your day might I add.

There's so much to love about this dress from the empire sash and layered tulle to the sequined, heart shaped bodice.  All of those special touches make this dress ideal for any formal occasion.

This dress is so elegantly constructed and far exceeds the $99 price tag.  The bodice is full of gold-colored sequins and the heart-shaped neckline are striking.  I was worried the bod…

Twisted Sista Hair + Scalp Fix Review

I've been a natural hair diva for nearly 2 years now.  No perms.  No relaxers.  No permanent colors.  It is a challenge for me because I am so new at this whole "natural thang".  The last few months have been full of trial and error with various products recommended by fellow bloggers and some of the natural hair divas in my life.  It isn't often I find offers for blogger reviews for natural hair care products so I jumped at the offer to review twisted sista natural hair care products.  

I received a twisted sista Hair + Scalp Fix Strengthen and Repair Kit and samples of twisted sista Curl Activator and Blow Drying Creme.

My twisted sista Hair + Scalp Fix Strengthen and Repair Kit contained Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner, Deep Conditioner Masque and Restructure and Repair Treatment.  During the Summer, I swim a lot and pool chemicals leave my hair in desperate need of deep conditioning to keep my tresses soft and manageable.  I can definitely see myself adding t…

Chick fil A Introduces Fresh Made  Salads and Wraps to their Menu
Thanks to Mom It Forward, I had the opportunity to gather a group of my blogging buddies to try Chick-fil-A ’s new salads. Unfortunately, Mother Nature threw a wrench in our Girls Night Out plans with her gusty winds, flashes of lightning, bursts of thunder and threats of tornadoes. Since most of my divas were unable to attend as potential bad weather loomed, I recruited Jay, the youngest of Los Tres Amigos. He reluctantly accepted, well it was more of a bribe of Chick-fil-A nuggets. What can I say, the kid loves their chicken nuggets. I drove …
