My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of  H2Thermal.  I wanted to try this because I blow dry and flat-iron my hair everyday.  It really takes it's toll on my hair so I can use all the help I can get to save it.  The product feels like lotion and is very silky feeling on my hands when I apply it to my hair.  I only need to use a small amount and run it through my towel dried hair.  When I start blow drying, I can feel it getting softer and silkier.  I was getting regular hair trims but since I got H2Thermal, I have not needed a trim.  My hair looks and feels healthy.  It has been a miracle worker for my hair!  I use it twice a week and love the results I am getting.  I would highly recommend H2Thermal to anyone who wants softer, shinier, silkier hair when they heat treat it.  You can purchase it on the Let's Talk Beauty website.  Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, & Pinterest.

Get a Free Peeler with the NanoRazor 3" Ceramic Paring Knife (Review)

The Savvy Living NanoRazor 3" black ceramic paring knife is an all-around performance ceramic knife that is sharp, durable and delivers effortless & high precision. The free peeler included in the packaging can be re-arranged for both right handed and left handed consumers. This product is perfect fit for the healthy eating conscious consumers who love to enjoy the authentic taste of their fruit and vegetables.
Ceramic knives are sharper, more lightweight, and much easier to clean than steel ones. However, many people complain that ceramic knives are too fragile, chipping or shattering at the slightest bump. The Savvy Living NanoRazor is made using a special 4-step process which makes their blades sharper, denser, and more durable than those on regular ceramic knives.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a NanoRazor knife.  The knife arrived in a nice box with a free peeler.  They were both molded perfectly in foam so they could easily be stored away for safety.  The first thing I used the knife for was peeling potatoes.  It worked great and is extremely sharp.  I actually cut my thumb because I wasn't used to using such a sharp knife.  I decided to try the peeler while I was peeling.  It got the job done but not as quickly as the knife.  The peeler is not near as sharp either.  Next, I tried peeling apples with both items.  They both worked great again!  The peeler worked much better on apples because of the softer skin.  This is the first ceramic knife I have ever used and am glad to add it to my kitchen.  It is easy to hold onto and fits my hand nicely.  I would highly recommend this knife to anyone who wants a sharp, quality kitchen knife.  You can find out more about it at Savvy Living.

Keep the Cold Out and Body Heat In With the Goddess Rash Guard Compression Shirt (Review)

This Goddess Rash Guard Compression Shirt will increase workout effectiveness by offering unbelievable flexibility, comfort and moisture management with it's extremely high quality functional material design.  It is designed for active women of all levels, so this workout shirt is an essential game changer for your workout routine!
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a Rash Guard Compression Shirt in my choice of colors.  I chose black because it is my favorite color and it goes with everything.  The shirt arrived just in time for a ski trip we had planned.  I thought it would be the perfect time to try it out.  I wore the Compression shirt with a pair of leggings as my base layer of clothing.  I wore another pair of jogging pants and a sweatshirt over them, then put my thin weather-proof snow suit on.  Normally, I would wear 3-4 shirts but I did not need to this time.  The Compression shirt kept my body heat in and kept the cold out.  I was able to ski all day without having to take warm up breaks.

I ordered the size large shirt all though I normally wear a medium.  I'm glad I did because it would be a tighter fit than I would like.  The shirt can be worn alone or underneath other shirts.  It is made of soft material that does not allow hair or fuzz to cling to it.  The stitching is made perfectly and has not raveled after several washings.  I would highly recommend the Goddess Rash Guard Compression Shirt to anyone who wants a comfortable shirt.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Take A Break With Mommy's Time Out Wine (Review)

Mommy's Time Out is a line of delicious, affordable wines made from Italian grapes that make great gifts or a fun girls night out.  Mom deserves a break, and Mommy's Time Out is a perfect way to sit back and relax.

Selective Wine Estates also produces two additional novelty labels including Dad's Day Off and First-Rate Old Fart.  Both make ideal gifts!
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of Mommy's Time Out Wine of my choice.  I chose the Moscato because I prefer a fruity wine that can be drank anytime.  I like to drink a glass of wine and relax after a rough day or while I am scrolling through my endless emails.  I choose my wines by reading the bottle.  If it says "should be paired with fish or cheese", I tend to shy away from it.  I just want to drink it!  This is why I love this brand...Mommy's Time Out.  There are so many times during the day that I am sitting here by myself and nothing is going right.  I think to myself "Mommy needs a time out!"  How many of you do that?  This company  couldn't have picked a better name for a wine company.  We give our kids a time out so why can't we have one?  
The bottle arrived by FedEx in a cute blue satin bag.  It was freezing outside so the bottle was ice cold already.  It had a card attached that had a note inside...much agreed!

The bottle has the twist off top so you don't need a corkscrew to open it.  After pouring my first glass, I thought it was an odd flavor for Moscato.  It was a decent wine but was very light in flavor.  There wasn't a lot of fruit taste.  It is not a sweet wine like some Moscatos are.  It has a crisp flavor that lingers.
I would probably buy it again and I am looking forward to trying the other flavors.  I would recommend Mommy's Time Out Wine to anyone who loves wine and needs a time out!  Check out the website or follow them on Facebook.

Stream Your Instagram Feed With #Cube (Review)

#Cube is the living canvas for the Instagram photos and videos that matter most to you. Finally liberated from your smart devices, #Cube passively streams the candids of your friends, family and favorite people to you throughout the day. Photos and videos are streamed in real-time, bringing them straight from Instagram to your #Cube.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a #Cube.  To be honest, I wasn't sure what it was before I got it.  I thought it was something to display my Instagram photos but it is not.  After receiving it, I seen it is so much better than that.  You actually connect your Instagram account to it and it displays all of the photos and videos from your connections as they are posted, as long as there is a wifi connection.  You just set how fast the photos change and sit back and watch them roll!  You can see the back of the photo to see what is wrote on it and you can also "favorite" them.

The screen size is large enough that several people can watch it.  It is much nicer than trying to look at a little phone screen.  You can get the #Cube in other colors.  It also comes with a charger.

I love this new gadget and I highly recommend it to any fan of Instagram.  It makes a great gift idea.  Check out the website or follow them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, or Google+.

Prolong the Life of Your Delicates With IndieSmarts Luxury Wash Bags (Review)

If you've tried any ordinary laundry wash bags, you'll notice the InsideSmarts difference in no time. These #1 rated wash bags are made of premium-grade mesh that makes them as strong & durable as they are luxurious & smooth.  This lingerie wash bag set ships includes 4 Luxury Wash Bags (2 medium, 2 large). Keep like-colors separated using the 3 white wash bags for light-colored loads, and the 1 large black bag for dark-colored items.  Zippered mesh laundry bags can be noisy, but not this new, 2015 Delicates Wash Bag design. Slip the rustproof zipper under the smart zipper guard to protect & ensure a quiet, snag-free wash.
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a set of InsideSmarts Luxury Wash Bags.  I have been trying to find a way to prolong the life of my bras but they tend to get ruined in the washer too quickly.  I always hang them to dry but the washing machine is just too hard on them because they get tangled up with everything.  After receiving these bags, I have been able to add life to my bras because they come out of the washer tangle free.  They can no longer get hooked on lacey clothing or my frayed jeans!  I usually place 2-3 bras in the bag at a time and it works perfectly.
I would definitely recommend these bags to anyone who wants to prolong the life of their delicates.  You can purchase them HERE on Amazon.

Fantasy Box Is Not Just Valentine's Day. Check Out the Limited Edition Platinum Spa Box (Review)

The Platinum Spa Limited Edition Valentine's Day Fantasy Box was exclusively designed for The View.  It features an amazing lingerie set of your choice (Black-Decadence, Red-Romance, or Blue-Sweetness), an array of luxuriously sweetly-scented products and three signature Fantasy Box instruction cards for setting the mood and turning your home into a romantic spa retreat. And no need to worry about the neighbors, the package is delivered in a discreet brown box.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a Platinum Spa Valentine's Day Fantasy Box.  I adore Fantasy Box and could not wait to receive this box.  I already had Valentine's Day plans for dinner and the new hot movie with my hubby so this would fit in perfectly for the after party.

As promised, the box arrived in plain cardboard with no distinguishable labels to give a clue to what is inside.  When I opened the box, the first layer had three cards that gave ideas and instructions on how to use the products inside.

Under the flap lay the lovely products!  I'm in heaven!  Some of  my favorite things all thrown into one box!  Anyone could get used to this.  Here is a breakdown of everything inside...

Lingerie- I chose the Decadence set, which is black.  You can get red or blue as well.  They are supposed to come with panties but mine did not.  I ordered a size large even though I usually wear medium and it fits perfectly.  It is super cute and comfy.

Coquette Thigh High Hose - I honestly did not wear these because my husband hates them.

Kama Sutra Chocolate Crème Brulee Body Souffle - This stuff is very moisturizing and smells delicious.  I felt like I was being slothered in chocolate pudding.

JimmyJane Afterglow Natural Massage Oil Candle - This candle burned nicely and smelled great.  It does not leave your skin waxy like some oil candles do.  If you like hot oil massages, then this is perfect for you.

Sliquid Organics Sensual Massage Oil - This oil does not have much of a scent but works great. 

Kama Sutra Honey Dust Kissable Body Powder - This powder comes in a cute bag and also a tin.  It has a feather duster to apply it with.  It smells amazing!  You will definitely want to kiss it off!

Bag of flower petals - You can drop these in the bath water to set the mood or leave a trail to where you are with them.

Bag of 9 Tealight Candles - I lit these around the room to create a sexier atmosphere.
There was also a 25% off code for my first subscription box!
Thanks to Fantasy Box, my Valentine's Day (and the next morning) was amazing!  I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to add some fun in the bedroom or wants a great gift idea.  It's not just for Valentine's Day.  It is perfect for any occasion or every night!  This box is still available for $99 (that's half price!) so hurry before they sell out!  Check out the website for all the other boxes that is available and be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.

Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag is Perfect For All Lunches (Review)

Save Money by Packing your Lunch with the Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag.  It has convenient features and contemporary designs so this polyester lunch tote bag is ideal for those on the go.  It's got an adjustable shoulder strap, multiple pockets and a large main compartment area.  It also features
  an elastic rope on it's side to hold beverages and also includes a side handle.  These lunch bags are ideal to take to work, for kid's lunches, outing events, picnics, etc.  The bag is 12.25"h x 10.25"w x 8.75"d.
My Review:
 I recently had the chance to review a Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag.  My daughter has to pack a meal to take to Basketball games after school so I thought this would be perfect.  It is red and black, which are her school colors.  It is larger than I expected it to be but it is a nice size.  She can fit plenty of goodies in here and have room for extra snacks for after the game.  It is well insulated to keep everything cold all day if I put a cold pack inside.  There is a side pocket for smaller items or silverware.
The bag I received did not have a place on the side for drinks like they advertised but there is plenty of space inside to carry one.  Overall, I would definitely recommend the Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag to anyone who wants a nice sized bag that holds plenty of food.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Survive in the Wildernes with the Paracord Survival Bracelet

Over 92% of people don't plan for emergency situations. They don't believe it could happen to them. They believe common sense and being careful are enough. It isn't. Deadly situations can happen to very smart and very prepared people. Proper planning can and will save your life.

This survival bracelet offers the following life-saving tools:

- 16 feet of very strong, military-style parachute cord
- Serrated wood saw designed to rip through wood with ease
- Fire Starter Rod. Easily create a shower of molten sparks: simply run buckle firmly/quickly against rod.
- Rope has built-in reflective strands to stand out even in the faintest light

Possible Life-Saving Examples:

Fire Starter Rod
- Starting fires for warmth, food, boiling water, cauterizing wounds, etc..
- Signaling for help with ultra-bright sparks
- Scaring off animals
- Make a tourniquet to slow down/stop bleeding
- Make a splint/arm sling
- Use individual strands for a fishing line
- Support a simple shelter
- Help climbing up/down steep slopes

- Fashion Spears
- Alter gear
- Saw branches to size for tools, gear, first aid, etc...

Reflective Stitching
- Get noticed and found in the dark quicker
- Tie around branches to leave an easily spotted "breadcrumb" trail

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a Paracord Survival Bracelet.  My family is always outdoors doing something whether it is hunting, fishing, camping, or hiking through the woods.  This bracelet is nice to have on hand, just in case.  It looks cool to just wear it as bracelet.  I usually have I lighter on me because I smoke but I know they are useless if they get wet.  This firestarter rod will work regardless.  I tested it out to prove it works quickly and easily.  The saw is not extremely sharp but will work to get necessary jobs done.  You can turn the loop in to hide the blade inside the cords.

I would definitely recommend the Paracord Survival Bracelet to anyone who is outdoors and wants peace of mind if an emergency situation should arise.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.
