WAHM Wednesday!! 8/17/11

So in our first installment of WAHM Wednesday I would like to spotlight:


Suzie is working mom who likes to use downtime to make jewelry,
especially rings, pendants, and earrings. Primarily self-taught, she
began making jewelry in 2009. After selling a few items to friends and
co-workers, she decided to take things to the next step and opened a
shop on Etsy and started a business page on Facebook in March 2011.

Wire is used as the main medium, and everything in her shop can be custom made,
so you get exactly what you're looking for. If you don't see something
you want, just ask!

Suzie makes some really great jewelry out of her home. You can check
out her items and order on Facebook - - and through Etsy –

 Some of her wonderful creations include:

But my absolute favorite of all the things I have seen is:

This necklace is what caught my eye! A perfect mother's necklace! This necklace has special meaning for me since, anyone who knows me knows, I call my children my peas! My son is my pea and my daughter is my little pea! A good friend of mine just found out she is pregnant and just saw her first ultra sound picture and I told her that know she knows why they call a baby in your belly "A pea in the pod"!

I absolutely adore this necklace and plan on splurging on it for my self very soon! She also has the peas come in different colors (birth colors, pink or blue, or any colors you want) and you can get the matching earrings as well! Please take a look at her Etsy shop ( ) and if you have any questions please contact her on FB ( )!

This is my pick for WAHM Wednesday! Do you know a WAHM you would like to nominate or re you a WAHM... If so please add their name to our list at! ( ) see you next Wednesday for the next installment!!

Auguat Show!! Scentsey Extravaganza!!

About ME: I'm a stay at home, single mom of two boys. We have 2 dogs, a cat and a sugar glider. I also run my own daycare out of my home. Needless to say, burning candles in my home seemed a little scary for me with so much going on. I heard about Scentsy from a neighbor of mine and then again through a friend who had joined Scentsy. After learning more about the product and how safe it was for my home, I joined the company. After all, I could use a little time away from the home every now and then, and who wouldn't want to get paid to party? I shared Scentsy with everyone I knew and promoted 4 times in 6 months to become a Star Consultant! It's been an amazing experience so far and one of the best decisions I made!

About SCENTSY: Scentsy Wickless candles are a safe alternative to regular candles. With Scentsy candle warmers, there is no flame, no soot, and no lead - so no worries! Instead, each skillfully designed ceramic Scentsy Warmer uses a low-watt bulb that gently melts a specially formulated highly scented wax Scentsy Bar, releasing delightful, long-lasting fragrances in any of your favorite rooms.

Scentsy warmers come in several sizes, from Plug-In Scentsy Warmers that fit small areas like bathrooms and laundry rooms to Full-Size Scentsy Warmers that make a statement in any room – offices, reception areas, dens, kitchens, even dorms. They are the best wickless candles! With more than eighty Scentsy fragrances to choose from and with our extensive assortment of designs, finishes and colors, you will have no trouble finding Scentsy candle warmers to fit your office and home d├ęcor; there is no reason to worry about candles ever again!

August Party!!!! Scentsy!!
Party ends August 29, 2011

Every person who purchases any item at all will be entered into a drawing to receive all the hostess benefits from this party! Let's help a WAHM mom out while getting great products at a great price! If you are interested in becoming a Scentsy consultant please contact Robyn to find out more info on a great business opportunity!!

How to ORDER: Go to my website: and clock on the BUY tab at the top. When you are asked what party to join, find the "Mystery Host; The Free Life" Party and buy under that tab. Mostly all Scentsy products are 10% off for the month of August, so you can get an awesome product for an awesome deal! Whoever orders the Warmer of the Month (SOL) will get a free bar of the Scent of the Month (Just Breathe) from me personally.

Party Planning Check List Review

I try not to write bad reviews (especially since a lot of the companies that send me things send things to giveaway to all of you!) But this party planning check list is something my son could have written! It was poorly done and not at all informative! I will not be posting links because I am so unhappy with it but if you would like it you may contact me! Thank you!

Redweek Review and Giveaway! !

I was given the opportunity to review the site When they described their product to me this is how it was explained:

Product Description

Once you become a parent, finding a way to have a budget-conscious, but great family vacation is key! That’s why timeshare rentals are the best-kept secret for vacationing families. Plus, there are so many more advantages by renting a timeshare directly from an owner besides just the reduced nightly rate.

1) Timeshare rentals typically cost up to 50% less than cramped hotel rooms, which allows families the opportunity to vacation at luxury resorts where they might otherwise not be able to afford to go.

2) They are spacious: the kids can have their own bedroom which means the parents can stay up late in the living room while the kids go to bed early.

3) Most come with a kitchen so you can save money not eating out for every meal

4) Things to do: Most are attached to a resort (hotel) where many of the amenities (waterpark features, children's playgrounds, arcade game rooms, etc.) are included in the rental price.

RedWeek is an online marketing site, with over 1.5 million members, where owners list their timeshares for rent. A membership gives access to all of the information on timeshare rental listings on, including reviews, and the ability to engage in rental agreements with wonderful budget-friendly offerings.

Honestly this explains it best!!

It is a great site where if you own a timeshare and can't use it you can rent it out for your week and if you do not own one you can rent a vacant one that someone wants to rent for their week at a discounted rate! I love this idea so much! It gives you so many options for a family friendly and affordable vacation!!

Each listing even has reviews so you can see what people have to say about a place before you even rent! IT is great!!! I recommend checking it out!! has generously offered to give one lucky Free Lifer a 2 year subscription to their site! For your chance to win just fill in the form below! Please give the form a few minutes to load on a slow connection!

The Shaman & Ayahuasca Review

I found this book the very enjoyable and very assessable! Sometimes books of this nature can be drawn out and on a plane that is to high for most due to the fact the author is trying to be preachy and self righteous, this was not the case at all! Michael Wiese went to Peru to write and research the book, and gained access to Campos that most people never would be able to! The book describes the ayahuasca experience and it's true culture and not just the pop culture version of it.

I recommend the book highly. There is also a DVD documentary by the same name that goes along with the book that I am excited to order!

I really truly recommend this book! It opened my eyes up a lot! I don't want to give to much away because I want you to read it, but it truly was an education!

Prefense Hand Sanatizer review and Giveaway!!!

I received this hand sanitizer to review and honestly... I LOVE IT!!!! First of all it is alcohol free  which makes me happy and I love how it foams up too! It is great in the kitchen or in my daughter's cheer bag! It works great with my son after he comes in from doing some kind of experiment too! What I like most is the fact it is alcohol free and is safe and does not smell yucky!!!

Prefense just came out with their first ever Combo Pack!  It's only available on their website ( and the price is the LOWEST price ever on Prefense products -- $7.99!  Considering that both items in the combo pack are $6.99 by themselves, it's like you're buying one and getting the other for a dollar! This product is great and since it is alcohol free it lasts a long time!

Prefense has been kind enough to give one of our lucky readers a bottle of their own! Please enter in the form below and please note it may take a few minutes for the form to load!!

Happy sanitizing all!

 I was given a Tshirt to review from THIS FUN TSHIRT PRINTING SITE! The quality is a nice heavy 90% cotton 10% polyester blend and had the cutest little monkey on it! The applique they have on it seems like it may peel in the wash though so I would think carefully on how it is printed before you buy it. I think it would be perfect for a scout troop, school fundraiser or any group! I was impressed by the quality of shirt and very happy with it :) I would recommend checking it out ASAP!!!

Reveiw of a Great Free Ebook!

I was given this ebook to review!  Honestly at first I was excited!! I love hosting parties and especially themed parties so I figured this was perfect! It was a light easy read with links to purchase the items and decorations they talked about. If this is your first time planning a Luau Themed Party then this is perfect! They give you game ideas and lots of decoration and goodie bag ideas too but if you are an expert at party planning then this may be a skip. Honestly if I had to give it a 1-10 (one being lowest) it would be a 7 1/2! I would recommend looking through because she may have just mentioned something you did not think of! To get your hands on a copy of this book CLICK HERE! you won't be sorry ;)
