I think the video below shows best my results, instead of listing each picture individually. It’s a 23 second video that shows before and after pictures with using just one wrap of the Slimmin Suzie. The sample that I got came with several packages as shown directly below, and some wraps, which are reusable.
The wraps are pretty easy to apply. I want to say, put the clay powder into the bowl that you are using before you add the water. If you don’t, you will have a huge mess on your hands. It still works, it just will drip the entire time you are wearing the wrap.
After the wrap was applied, and I got all wrapped up in the cellophane wrap, I basically sat in the bathtub the first time and relaxed with a book (because I added the water before the clay and was dripping). Even going about it the wrong way, I did see results. I saw an inch shaved off everywhere that the wrap had been applied, some areas a little more than that even.
I do think that this has helped somewhat kick start my stomach into getting back into shape. The muscles on my stomach were just so stretched it was hard to do anything with them. It’s been an uphill process with the muscles regaining strength, but the firming of the skin I think was a relief to them.
I want to briefly touch on how my skin felt afterwards. It did feel really silky and smooth, something I was happy about. Stretch marks cover my stomach, so having smooth skin there is usually incredibly hard to have. I have really enjoyed these wraps all around, even more so when I mixed the water and powder together the right way.
My personal results are: the wraps do work, although they might be a temporary fix for most.

Another year, another “where did the time go? The year was just starting like… yesterday?” With twins, or multiples in general (whether by one birth or more), that year can seem even quicker than ever before. So I just wanted to give a few tips and tricks on how to slow down the time, even when you have 4 (or more!) little hands trying to pull you along ever faster.
Below I will talk about a few tips that I have come up that I will personally try to do next year, 2016, with my own twins. Let me know what you think after you’ve read them all!
Sing that silly song
Read a bed time story
Bed time stories are crucial. I know that on the days that I don’t read a bed time story to my twins, they definitely have a lot harder time getting to sleep. Now, with twins, or even more, juggling the little bodies on your lap while still trying to read a story can be a little daunting. Don’t give up! It is possible, it just takes a lot, and a lot more still, practice. Try to mix up the stories, don’t read the same one every night if you can. There will most likely be favorites, but if you mix it up not only do you keep their attention because they want to know what is going to happen next, but you also are helping to increase their vocabulary. Something I know I enjoyed when I was little, that I soon will start incorporating into my everyday (or every night) bed time routine is doing made up stories. This is also my guide to myself, so, I just wanted to put that out there. Made up stories were amazing, when I helped my mom make up stories princesses would rescue dragons, there was a never ending supply of kittens, or a little girl who resembled me would go on all kinds of adventures. Made up stories mean the most to kids, or at least they did to me. They have an extremely personal feel to them, and your kids will appreciate your efforts to give them a made up bed time story.
Go on walks everyday
Spend one-on-one time with each kid
Go visit grandparents
Do a weekly e-mail
Make some arts and crafts
It really is silly, how making arts and crafts together can impact someone, even years later. The pride that they feel that their art was on the fridge, or the sense of accomplishment? Those things are so easy to give to your kids, just by acknowledging that they did a good job. You also get that warm fuzzy feeling seeing them have such a fun time (and who’s to say parents can’t have fun doing arts and crafts too?). Painting, drawing, pipe cleaners or popsicle sticks, the fun can be endless. See what you can find around the house to make into an art project, that box from Amazon makes an amazing fortress and those rolls of toilet paper once they’re used make amazing lightsabers. The sky is honestly the limit to the crafts you can make.
