A healthier way to style your nails. –

Standard

I haven’t met a lady that doesn’t do her nails at least every once in a while. i have intense allergies, mainly to artificial ingredients. They are life threatening too. This has really put me off of buying regular nail polish. So many of the ingredients are known carcinogens, and used to embalm people. It’s kind of hard using something like that to beautify yourself. I’ve become introduced to a great company. One that took a stand and created a product rid of the usual ingredients. Ella & Mila Nail Polish Mommy and Me and Dream Collections , First Aid Nail Strengthener, and their Quick Dry Top Coat, are what I was lucky enough to review at a discount, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.

These products are 5 free, which means they are fee of the usual 5 harmful ingredients that can be found in nail products. These chemicals are: Formaldehyde, Toluene, DiButyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. They are also a cruelty animal free and vegan company.

I used all of these products to do my nails. I started with their Nail-Care, Nail Strengthener – First Aid Kiss. It applies clearly. I used this instead of a base coat, since it’s purpose is to increase the health of your nails. In this product there are ingredients like calcium pantothenate and coffee extract, to help harden and strengthen your nails. They say to apply it once a week, for at least a couple weeks. I chose to apply it as my base coat. It did fill in ridges, and helped to make a smoother application of the nail polish, which in general is the purpose of a regular base coat. I like knowing that I am helping my nails with a polish, instead of hurting them like with most polishes. It dried fairly quickly too.

Then I applied their Mommy and Me duo in:  I Mint It, and Milia’s Fave. These polishes went on very smoothly. I needed two coats of the green to cover like the one coat of the purple. It has a nice shine to it. These also dried quickly. Even the nails with two coats of the green polish dried quickly. They have a large variety of colors available too. After these dried, I applied to a couple nails, their, On Thin Ice color from their Dream Collection. This is a very pretty silver sparkly polish. I did two coats to get a thicker, almost full nail covering of sparkles. I mean, what girl doesn’t love sparkles! I really like it. It did not go on clumpy. It dried very quickly, and that was on top of the nail strengthener, and 2 green coats. These nail polishes do have the regular nail polish scent. That hasn’t diminished , lol, even with the removal of harmful ingredients. After my polishes dried, I applied their Quick Drying Top Coat. And wow, it is quick drying. It even gave my sparkles, a much smoother feeling to it. It applied evenly, and really gave my polishes a shine, and firm cover to them. This has to be my favorite top coat to date.

I am always working and doing something. I never sit still. My nails take a constant beating, and they have held up well with these products. I am really pleased with the quality and ingredients of these products. I very highly recommend them.

These are so much fun. – W-plus Flashing Finger Lighting Gloves LED Colorful Rave Gloves.

Standard

I am so happy that I was afforded the opportunity to review W-plus Flashing Finger Lighting Gloves LED Colorful Rave Gloves 7 Colors Light Show, Light-up Toys, Christmas Gift, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives as shown. You will get two gloves in your package.
These gloves arrive with batteries included. In each glove you will see a plastic tab coming out of the opening of the glove. You need to remove these tabs. They are inserted into the battery compartment, and they are what keep the batteries from getting worn out in shipment. The hard plastic case goes on top of the hand. You will feel a button off to the side of the case, through the glove. Press on it. This will turn the glove on. I had one button that was finicky the first time I pressed it. I opened up the little Velcroed pocket, and pressed the button that way, and then it started working right. These gloves have six modes. They flash all colors, or roll through all of the colors. There is also a solid on of all colors, or the flashing of the three colors individually. You have to go through all 6 modes, before being able to turn them off. They are pretty fun, and comfortable to wear. My 8 year old loves them!. They definitely make you visible when it’s dark out, that’s for sure. They obviously fit my hands better than my sons. They were made for adults. I also had a lot of room left over, so they would fit a man’s hands, of a regular size. The gloves are silent, and they do not heat up where the LEDs are. LEDs are long lasting, and energy efficient. I love that they make the battery compartment accessible, and the batteries are replaceable. These would be fun for parties, ice skating, outdoor activities, and more. We are having a lot of fun with our gloves, and I am very comfortable recommending them.

An easy way to be prepared. – MIREN’s Compact LED Penlight Tactical Pen.

Standard

I am so happy that I was afforded the opportunity to review MIREN’s Compact LED Penlight Tactical Pen Outdoor Self-defense Equipment Business Office Pen Portable, at a reduced cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives as shown. In your package you will get 1 pen, 3 extra button batteries, 1 ink refill, and 1 tag.
I love, love, love this pen. We all have regular Smith and Wesson tactical pens in my family. This is my first tactical pen with a flashlight built in though. I love it. The set is great, and the price point is awesome. I am so happy that it comes with both a pen refill, and a battery refill too. My flashlight was quite easy to turn on immediately. I read a lot of reviews stating that it was hard to turn the light on. I’ve had no issues at all. Approx. 1 7/16ths of an inch down from the top of the pen, you will see a space/line. Hold below this point, and turn the top part to the left. As you turn it tight, the light goes on. Turn it a little to the right, and the light turns off. That’s all you have to do. This pen has a great pocket clip too. It’s a great size, and pretty tight. It doesn’t come loose, and hold’s pretty firm. This pen’s casing is solid. It is made out of aviation grade aluminum. The pen cap is the screw on type. The threading was done well. I’ve had no issues at all with it. Since the Tungsten tip was built into the pen’s cap, you don’t have to worry about it popping off while using it in an emergency. You can use this pen to defend your self, or to break your cars window, if you get trapped in an accident. Since the Tungsten tip is on the bottom of the pen, it is a natural movement to grab it out of your pocket, and defend yourself with it. The bulb is an LED. It can stay lit up to 10 hours on a fresh set of batteries. LEDs are definitely more durable than regular lighting, and can be jostled, and take more of a beating. As a pen goes, it writes with black ink. It has a fine tip writing style to it. It started right away, and writes smoothly. It is actually very comfortable in hand, and affords a solid grip. It has flat areas, as well as the built in pocket clip, so it won’t roll off of the table on you. I wish the company stated the lumen count on it. I’ve has many pen lights in my past as a nurse. It would function well in this job also. I am really very happy with this product, and I feel comfortable recommending it.

Perfect for any outdoor gathering. – Nova Microdermabrasion’s Portable Easy Pop-up Event Party Gazebo Canopy Tent V-series.

Standard

I am so thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review Nova Microdermabrasion’s Portable Easy Pop-up Event Party Gazebo Canopy Tent V-series 10x10ft , at a reduced cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives as shown. In your package you will get 1 tent frame, 1 tent awning, rope, 4 sand bags, 4 stakes, 1 sheet of instructions, and 1 storage bag.
We live on the coast, and a tent like this is perfect for the beach. We go as a family, and a big area like this to gather is wonderful. Otherwise, too many umbrellas are needed, and we all know how well they work when it’s windy. It is always windy around here too. I am not new to pop up tents. I was so happy to see how well this one is made. It is well made, and up to the challenge. It took two of us to assemble it. I did most of it myself, but toward the end, I needed my son to help me expand it to it’s fully opened position, and then again, to help close it up. It’s easiest when one person grabs one corner, and the other grabs the corner diagonally across from you. To set it up, you first stand the frame upright, and then open it up somewhat. Then you place the top canopy on it. This is so easy. There is a large Velcro strip on each corner of the frame. On the canopy, on the underside, there is a coordinating piece of Velcro to attach the canopy. You do this for every corner, and now you are set to fully expand the canopy. Now, you need to pull each corner of the canopy into it’s locked position. You pull the top portion for this part. This was a little hard to do. It took my older son’s strength the first time we did it. Once all four upper corners are locked into position, you can then work on raising the poles. There are a few holes on each pole to reach your desired height. After it’s all set up, on the inside of the canopy, you will notice other Velcro straps to set up. This fully keeps the canopy on while in use. We set it on the lowest hole for our photos, because on a very windy day at the beach, that’s a good spot to set it. It’s great at this height since everyone is normally sitting anyways. The outside of the canopy is a bright blue. The underside is a silver color. It should help reflect the heat off. This pop up tent helps block up to 95% of the sun’s UV rays. The canopy is water proof 210D Oxford material with silver coating. The frame has a rust proof white powdered coating on it too. It’s made to withstand the elements, but don’t forget to take care of it before placing it back in the storage bag. On each outer corner of the pop up tent, you will see a plastic D ring. This is where you tie the rope to, that you also attach to each sand bag. There are also holes in each leg of the tent, at the base. You place a tent stake through each hole. These two items help keep the pop up stent stay put int he wind.
You can use a pop up tent like this for gatherings, the beach, picnics, art fairs, flea markets, bake sales, and more. They are just so useful, and so easy to store. I am amazed how something that is so easy to put up, folds up into a bag that is very compact. I am 5’3″ and on the thinner side. I have no trouble carrying the bag. It’s a great unit, and I am very comfortable recommending it.

Everyone needs a Santa Chair. – Marljohn’s Christmas Children Gift Sofa.

Standard

Not only is this chair too cute, it has brought a lot of happiness to my son. And that is priceless. I am beyond thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review Marljohn’s Christmas Children Gift Sofa, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This item arrives as shown.
My son was so excited when I told  him what it was. Then the hunt for my handheld air compressor began, lol. This little baby has 3 separate areas to blow up with air: the bottom, the arms and back, and the head. I used my 12V handheld air compressor, and filled this chair up in about 5 minutes. I tried doing the bottom by mouth, nope, lol. My 8 year old is a big boy too. He’s bigger than most kids his age, and he fits in here beautifully. We have no leaky seems. The air plugs are nice and tight, and secure. They are not the flimsy ones either. I was worried about that. He has been bouncing around on it, and he’s good to go. It does not make weird sounds every time he moves. He can’t sit still, so if it did, it would be gone. There was no strong vinyl odor that there can be with some inflatables. We didn’t smell anything at all, so that’s awesome too. Fully inflated this chair is 32 inches wide, and 32 inches tall. It will fit a variety of sizes. And, there is that nice indentation for where the tushy can settle into. That way you won’t just slide right off. We are so happy with this chair. I am very comfortable recommending it.

If you would like to purchase this chair, it can be found here on Amazon: //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=cspprorevblo-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B013W944R0&asins=B013W944R0&linkId=NUHHYC7WUPXZJMOK&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true

The perfect way to dress your fireplace – Deal Sumo’s Zecko Black Scroll Design Panel, Wrought Iron Metal Fireplace Screen.

Standard

This is a really pretty fireplace screen. It’s lightweight, so easily positioned too. I am thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review Deal Sumo’s Zecko Black Scroll Design Panel Wrought Iron Metal Fireplace Screen, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives nicely packaged, as shown.
I was surprised, and relieved to see how lightweight this product is. It’s easy to lift and move into position. The feet turn out for a very sturdy hold. It doesn’t wobble or lean. It is made out of wrought iron. The mesh screening is also metal, and firm, not flimsy. This is a great way to update the look of your fireplace. If you moved into a home, with the old fashioned brass insert, than you can remove the insert and use this screen. It’s easier, way easier, to add a screen like this, then to buy a new insert, that will just get outdated. It’s larger enough to cover the regular size of a fireplace opening. It will help stop ashes, or burning embers from the flying out. Everyone once in a while, when the fire is burning, you get that one loud pop, from the wood, and things can fly. This would even be gorgeous if all you burned behind your screen, were candles. It is 36 inches long, and 31 1/2″ tall. It has a really pretty dark brown coloring to it, burnished. The feet fold flat to store it, if you needed to. The feet turn one way really, and sit in place firmly. The wrought iron work was done so well. It’s really pretty. The seems/welds at the joints were also done well, nice and smooth. I am a big fan of  straight fireplace screens, like this one. I think it has a more modern look to it that way, more streamlined. And it definitely takes up minimal space. And if your animal or child knocked it over, it wouldn’t hurt them. I am really happy with the quality of this fireplace screen. It’s so pretty in person.

If you would like to buy this fireplace screen, it can be found here on Amazon: //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=cspprorevblo-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B012XY3HRS&asins=B012XY3HRS&linkId=GD7I57HAYNUREMFV&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true

The torch will leed the way. – Outlite’s 878 900 Lumens CREE XML T6 LED Portable Zoomable Tactical Flashlight

Standard

This is a great and really unique lighting package. Especially at this price point. It’s really bright and durable too. I am not new to the Outline line of flashlights, and I have been quite pleased with them. So, needless to say, I am very happy to have the seller mail this Outlite 878 900 Lumens CREE XML T6 LED Portable Zoomable Tactical Flashlight – Rechargeable 18650 Battery, Charger and Free Lantern Accessory Included, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives nicely packaged and as shown. In your package you will get 1 18650 battery charger, 1 18650 battery, 1 AAA battery adapter, 1 battery sleeve, 1 torch attachment, and 1 flashlight. It can also operate off of 2 26650 batteries, but they are not included. This battery compartment is a tad larger than others, and it’s for the purpose of fitting the 26650’s. You can hear a little noise when shook, of the battery movement. I’m using the 18650 with the battery sleeve. It’s only slight, and it does not effect the flashlight’s operation at all.

When my package arrived, I was excited to see that the batteries had some charge on it. I was able to play with my light right away. I hate waiting, lol. I am a tad of an LED nut. We do, as a family, believe in being prepared. And one of the easiest ways to be prepared for an emergency, is to have plenty of back up lighting. We believe you should have at least one handheld, one headlamp, and one lantern, per person in your family, and a set for at least one guest. Emergency’s tend to take place at night, and the power seems to be the first thing to go. We all also have an inverter in our car, so we can easily charge this battery on the go too. My husband and older son are both commercial electrician’s. They are almost always the one’s pulling the new wires, and have no conventional lighting already in place. They depend on portable and rechargeable lighting sources. This light is bright. It has a Cree XML-T6 LED in it. Cree LED’s are our favorite. They seem to have the brightest, clearest LEDs that we have come across. This light has 5 modes too. The first press turns it on high, the second – medium, and the third – low. Now, the fourth press takes it to strobe, and the 5th is SOS mode. This light also has a great and easy zoom function. Just pull on the front bezel of the light. That’s all you have to do. Your lumen count can fluctuate from 500 – 900 lumens depending on the zoom. It’s higher when you zoom in. The on/off button is the tail cap button. It is tight and responsive. The body of the light is made out of aircraft grade aluminum. It has a wrist strap already attached to it. I hate threading the wrist strap on. Sometimes it can be such a hassle. And, the front of the bevel has a jagged edge. We call this a DNA catcher. If you are out for a walk, ad get confronted by an attacker, you could use this flashlight to defend yourself, if you had nothing else. The edges are sharp, and would most definitely catch some of the attackers DNA on them. This only needs the one battery to operate. Put the 18650 in the sleeve , and so the flat side is at the tail cap end. This light is water resistant, not waterproof. It’s ok if you get caught in the rain, just don’t submerge this flashlight. The torch attachment just pushes onto the cap, that’s it. And it stays put pretty well. My son is in love with this attachment. He yelled, “a Minecraft Torch”, lol, when he first saw it. He has since claimed this as his. It does turn this flashlight into more of a lantern, which is pretty handy. I don’t have the ability to test the lumens, but it is definitely bright. I really like this light, and the price point is amazing. I feel very comfortable recommending it. Again, I was sent this light in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.

If you would like to purchase this light, it can be found here on Amazon: //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=cspprorevblo-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B00VZTU5D2&asins=B00VZTU5D2&linkId=FVMAS5FA7EOZBK4E&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true
