How are you sleeping at night?
To be honest I am blessed to be able to fall asleep quite fast but ever since having children I seem to wake up often. Sometimes its due to children waking me up, sometimes its the bathroom calling my name, and even sometimes I think it happens because my body is in a pattern of waking up.
Since going back to work full time my body is trying to adjust to less sleep and no opportunity for those afternoon cat naps.
Thank you Ancient Minerals for sending me a bottle of your Ancient Mineral Magnesium Goodnight lotion to review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.
It was easy for me to welcome this review because I desperately yearn for uninterrupted sleep! So here is the nitty gritty details of my review.
I have been using the product for about 2.5 weeks. I use it occasionally (2-3 times a week) and not every night. The biggest difference I have noticed for me are my dreams. It may sound strange but every night I use this lotion I have more vivid dreams.
Dreaming more at night makes me believe that this is truly helping me reach that REM sleep I so desperately needed. I know we all dream at night and most of the time I never remember my dreams but each morning I wake up using the Goodnight Lotion I can recall my crazy dreams so much easier.
The dosage is a bit different for everyone. I started using a half of squirt but now I use 1 full squirt. There is no a scent with this lotion! I also like the fact that it is safe without extra ingredients that could be harmful! No formaldehyde or preservatives. Goodnight Lotion also provides hydration since it uses my favorite, coconut oil.

So if you are craving for better nights sleep I recommend trying Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion Goodnight! :)
What is Goodnight lotion?
Our newest release is a complementary blend of magnesium,
MSM, and melatonin formulated with a better night’s sleep in mind. Melatonin’s
critical role in your biology doesn’t end with sleep – this ubiquitous hormone is also
a powerful antioxidant, scavenger of free radicals, neuroprotective agent, immune
booster, and mood stabilizer.
Equally as important, magnesium is required for proper sleep cycle regulation. It
helps relax muscles, calm your nervous system, slow metabolic processes and
ultimately assists in transitioning the body into a restful state.
The application of these nutrients directly onto your skin allows for rapid assimilation by the body and, unlike many oral supplements, immediate results.
Rich in plant moisturizers including coconut oil and shea butter, this lotion soothes and hydrates without
leaving your skin feeling waxy or greasy. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion Goodnight is fragrance free, does not contain any formaldehyde releasing preservatives, and delivers 3mg melatonin and 25mg elemental
magnesium per 1 mL.
Ingredients: Purified water, Genuine Zechstein magnesium chloride, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), organic
vegetable glycerin, organic simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, squalane (olive), cetearyl olivate, sorbitan
olivate, organic cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, glyceryl stearate, cetyl alcohol, organic butyrospermum parkii
(shea butter), xanthan gum, melatonin, citrus sinensis (sweet orange) oil, caprylhydroxamic acid, caprylyl
glycol, sodium hyaluronate

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
