Its ok to be determined

Sometimes I think there is a bias or negative take on people who are determined to get ahead.
I have heard some pretty nasty comments about women who are "driven" to get ahead.
I'm pretty sure you have heard some of those very same comments.

But I disagree.
Getting ahead is just this ...


Just because you want to get ahead - doesn't mean you are bad
Just because you push yourself - doesn't mean you are bad
It just means you are determined to get ahead
so you can to do better for yourself and your family.

Just like you are suppose to do!

What Goes Around

I saw these and thought they really went hand in hand,
and before the spelling police get me ... I know whoever made this one for thelightworkersacademy.com spelled "Practice" wrong ... the message is still the same.



Kind of like Karma was calling to me to pass these along to you so that you too be able to take these to heart and put into practice.




So what do you think?
Is this not a perfect explanation of Karma and why we should ALWAYS practice kindness in our every day lives?

Another great reason to pick up the Tupperware Breakfast Maker ....
Not only is it great for Breakfast Eggs/Omelets/French Toast you can even make individual servings of brownies!  Great way to not have too much temptation sitting in your kitchen calling your name.


I may just have to make these tonight ...
you know when the chocolate cravings hit late in the evening ....

Don't forget, you can always check out the Tupperware pieces in my recipes on my Tupperware Site ... where you can shop in your jammies if you want - I won't tell.

Perfect definition of a Friend

I got this originally from a friend, a friend that I think of as a member of my family so she is much more than "just" a friend, but I think this is the perfect definition of a friend.



Friends

They love you,
But they're not your lover.

They care for you, 
But they're not from your family.

They're ready to share your pain,
But they're not your blood relation.

They are ... FRIENDS

A True Friend,
Scolds like a DAD,
Cares like a MUM,
Teases like a SISTER,
Irritates like a BROTHER,

And finally, 
Loves like a Lover.

Be sure to share this with your good friends,
Make sure that they KNOW 
that you consider them a Friend!

Mint Chocolate Cookie Pie (a little slice of heaven)

I saw this one from Tupperware and thought OMG it's heaven on a plate!  If you are looking for something to make for dessert that will have everyone oooohing and aaaahhing THIS is definitely it!





Mint Chocolate Cookie Pie
Chocolate mint is a crowd-pleasing flavor profile, combining the freshness of mint with the decadence of chocolate—it’s a win-win combination! This pie is worth what it takes to make the crust and filling. The end result is pure deliciousness.
  • 10 oz./285 g package chocolate-covered mint cookies
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 oz./225 g package cream cheese, softened, room temperature
  • ¼ cup of our Chocolate Dessert Blend
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. 
Place 2 cups (about 26 cookies) of cookies in base of Quick Chef® Pro System. Cover and turn handle to process until finely chopped (should yield about 1½ cups chopped). 
Stir in melted butter and transfer to a 9-in./23 cm pie plate. Press crumbs firmly into bottom and up the sides, creating as even a layer as possible. Bake 10 minutes. Set aside to cool completely. 
Place remaining cookies in base of Quick Chef® Pro System. Cover and turn handle to process until coarsely chopped. 
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and dessert blend with Silicone Spatula until fully combined.
 Pour cream into base Power Chef™ with Whip Accessory. Cover and turn the handle until the cream forms soft peaks. Do not over whip. 
Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture and blend gently. 
Add chopped cookies and gently fold until fully incorporated. 
Spread mixture into cooled pie crust, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled.
All of the products used in this recipe can be purchased on My Tupperware Site

Oh and right now we have our Pie Keeper/Taker and Individual Pie Wedges available in the Mid-October brochure (Oct 11 - Nov 14) that haven't been available for a few years.  Check those out and grab your set today from my Tupperware Site.

#CarSunshadeJumboBestForFrontWindshields

I'm sure you have thought why couldn't someone come up with a good product to protect your car and you from the sun while it is parked in a parking lot.  I know I have tried many over the years, but never really found anything that did the trick.  Most of the time they ended up in the trunk after about a week.

I will admit I was a little surprised when I opened the package I received of the X-Shade Car Sunshades.  I guess it was because it was so light, compact and thin, you had to wonder how this could possibly do what they claim.



I popped open the package to find a nice "sleeve" to keep your sunshade in when its not in use.  Already, I thought that was a bonus.









When I opened the sleeve and took out the Sunshade, I was shocked at how big it was ... it literally covered the front hood of my car!  Now that is a BIG Sunshade.


Putting it in the front windshield is a breeze - it easily conforms to the windshield without having "gaps" where the sun could be coming in.  No clips or ties or flap holders needed.


As you can see, there is room still to expand so if your car is "wider" than mine, you could easily use this one, but if you car is a little "narrower" you can overlap the circular panels even more than I did.


These Sunshades are a solar shield that keeps the car cooler by reflecting the sun away from the car with its reflective metallic surface.  It says that they are made from a premium metallic reflective polyester material that blocks up to 99% of the suns damaging UV rays.



I can see this being a huge benefit in the summer when the sun can turn your car into an oven while it sits in the parking lot.
I can't tell you how many times I have gotten into the car and burned the backs of my legs on the seats (love leather seats but hate that burn) or felt like I had no fingerprints anymore because the steering wheel was "on fire" all because the sun beats into the car.

Because it is so lightweight and folds into its own pouch, I can see this being in your carry on bag when you travel.
Oh and it is really easy to fold up and put back in the pouch - fold in half, twist, tuck in side flaps, slide attached elastic band around the package, squeeze slightly and slip into the pouch.




Yes I did put it back into this pouch in less than 2 minutes ... so it will definitely be easy for anyone to get it back in the pouch to keep it clean and ready for use day after day!



I really wish I had gotten this earlier this year .... like in the Spring, so that I could have used it all Spring and Summer and not just getting to try it out now in the Fall.  But I will say that this little baby will be in my car for years to come, sitting very pretty in my windshield when I'm not in the car.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free from OT-Online using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I saw this one the other day from my manager - and thought it was really perfect.

  • the FridgeSmart System,
  • Vent 'n Serve Pieces (no leftovers make PLANNED overs)
