Keep your lunch cold with the Hango Lunch Box Set (Review)

Hango - Your Lunch Bag for everywhere. Anytime.
Hango is the first lunch bag designed for different situations.  It is a set of two sizes for different occasions and has the best thermal insulation system so your food is kept longer.  The zipper is made of durable stainless steel. The bags are made of high quality material (polyester 300D with high density) and are nicely made.
They are also the only ones to offer Lifetime warranty so there is no risk!

The package includes:
1 large bag 6L x 6H x 10W (inches)
1 small bag 5L x 5H x 7.5W (inches)

My Review:
I recently received a Hango Lunch Box Set to review.  I received the black set which is my favorite color (yay!)  They arrived in a nice tote bag.  They kind of look like cosmetic bags but are really stylish lunch totes.  I think they are cute.  At first, I thought the lining was pretty thin. After filling one up with food and an ice pack, it stayed cool for several hours.  I'm impressed with how well they work.  I really like having the smaller one available for having snacks on the go.  These would have been perfect when the kids were babies to carry their bottles and baby food.  I would definitely recommend Hango to anyone who wants a stylish lunch box set that keeps things cool.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Prevent hair loss and improve your hair with Pura d'or (Review)

Pura d'or believes in creating only the best organic beauty and skin products made with the highest quality ingredients. All of their products are free from SLS, parabens and gluten. They are animal cruelty free, USDA Organic, USDA Certified Biobased, and Dr Trusted. They are also the #1 rated Organic Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo & #1 rated in shampoo & conditioner on Amazon.
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review two products by Pura d'or.  I received Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo & Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner, Lavender Vanilla.  They both come in large 16 oz. bottles and have pumps to make dispensing easy. 
The shampoo is a bit runny but lathers up nicely and has a fresh scent.  You should leave it on for two minutes then rinse.  I think it leaves a tacky feeling on my hair until I condition it but it is not a big issue.  I can tell by the way my brush looks, that my hair is falling out less since I have been using this.  I used to pull a handful of hair out of my brush daily but now there are only a few in there.
The conditioner smells amazing and much better than the shampoo.  I can smell more vanilla than lavender, which I like more.  It leaves my hair feeling silky, soft, and manageable.  I can tell my overall hair health is improving and would definitely recommend Pura d'or to anyone who wants high quality shampoo & conditioner.  Check out the website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Surprise a child every month with a Sharing Small Sock Subscription (Review)

Sharing Small is a Vancouver-based sock subscription service for kids!  Their socks feature two explorers engaging in a new adventure each month, and their subscribers (children aged 2-12) receive two pairs per month along with a fun letter, a color poster and a sticker each month. For every pair that is shipped, a pair is donated to a child in need.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a one month subscription of socks from Sharing Small.  I just had to let them know if my daughters sock size was small, medium, or large.  We received a lovely package with two pairs of socks,  a poster, and a sticker.  This months theme was parachuting and the back of the poster had a story about the Sharing Small Explorers parachuting adventure.

Both pairs of socks were the same.  It would be nice if they were different because my daughter likes to mismatch her socks but they are really cute.  They have little guys parachuting and the Sharing Small logo on them.  It appears the socks are all unisex so boys or girls can wear any of them.

The socks fit great and have washed up well.  They are made well and are made to last.  I would definitely recommend Sharing Small to anyone who has a child who loves to get surprises in the mail.  It is a fun subscription that they will use.  You can subscribe HERE.

Use Petunia Skincare's Derma Roller instead of Cosmetic Surgery (Review)

Petunia Skincare's new derma roller is now available in 1.5mm and contains 540 needles made with surgical stainless. 1.5mm can penetrate deeper than the 1mm derma roller and it is perfect for those with scars, deep scars, stretch marks, or cellulite. The 1.5mm is very effective for the body and face!

Do You Suffer From the Following Problems?:
~ Superficial acne scarring
~ Deep scars and stretch marks
~ Sagging skin
~ Wrinkles and fine lines
~ Cellulite
~ Large pores
~ Hyperpigmentation
~ Lax Skin & Elasticity

What You Will Get Out Of This Roller:
~ Firmer and thicker skin
~ Help smooth facial scars
~ Stimulate collagen and elastin production
~ Helps with scar removal and fading stretch marks
~ Stimulate hair growth
~ Diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
~ Save money from surgery and laser
~ Can be used on any part of the skin
~ Creates multi micro-channels in the skin, allowing products more able to penetrate into the skin at a deeper level

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a Petunia derma roller.  I have used other derma rollers in the past and had success with them but I had never used one this fine.  If you have never used one before, it does take some getting used to.  The needles actually penetrate your skin but I don't think it is painful.  It feels like a lot like that tingling sensation you get when your foot falls asleep.  The needles don't penetrate enough to draw blood because you just run it over your skin enough to leave dotted lines.  Don't press hard!  It comes with an e-book with very detailed instructions on how to use it for all of the skin conditions above.  It's amazing how this little tool can replace numerous surgical procedures if you follow the guidelines and keep with it.  I have seen results myself and will continue to use it.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their skin in just a few minutes every couple weeks.  You can check out the website for more info.

Keep your urine in check with Areta Urinalysis Strips (Review)

 Areta Urinalysis Test Strips include 100 strips in one bottle. Testing parameters include: Leukocytes, Nitrite, Urobilinogen, Protein, pH, Blood, Specific Gravity, Ketone, Bilirubin, and Glucose.
 They are easy to use: Dip in urine sample for 1-2 seconds; hold the strip close to the color blocks in bottle and match colors; results may be read up to 2 minutes and any color change after that shall be ignored.Color blocks are very clean cut and reduce confusion.  Colors change quickly after testing and results are available in 2 minutes.
  Save on doctor visits by screening ahead. Test strips have up to a 2 year shelf life clearly marked on the bottle. (Be advised: Once the bottle is opened, the strips are fresh for 90 days.)
 They are FDA Approved for Screening at-risk patients to assist for screening the following areas: diabetes, liver diseases, hemolytic diseases, urogenital, kidney disorders, urinary tract infections, carbohydrate metabolism (e.g. diabetes mellitus), liver function, acid-base balance and urine concentration.
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of Areta parameters.  I was told awhile back that I had a trace of blood in my urine after a routine check at my Neurologist's office.  After following up with my family doctor, I found out I had a bladder infection.  I didn't even know it because I never had any symptoms!  I was glad to try out these strips because they let me know in advance if there is blood in my urine as well as many other things.  They sent an email telling me how to read the results and understand what everything means.  It was very helpful in case my levels ever get abnormal.  As for now, everything is good but I will continue to keep an eye on it.  I would highly recommend these strips to anyone who wants to keep their health in check and make sure everything is good.  You can purchase them HERE.

Keep the bugs out with Quality Source Products Magnetic Screen Door (Review)

Quality Source Products Magnetic Screen Door fits a full 36 inch entry door. Overall product dimensions are 39" X 83".  There are no more gaps because this screen has a continuous center magnet.  It has continuous velcro sewn in around entire frame and also includes optional tacks for extra support.  This product comes with a risk free guarantee, so love it or your money back!

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a Magnetic Screen Door by Quality Source Products.  I wanted this screen for my basement door which is one of those sliding doors.  We are going in and out of it all summer because our pool is right by the walkout that this door leads to.  The door is difficult to open and close so when one of the kids runs in to go to the bathroom, they leave it open.  It drives me crazy!  Not only are they letting flies in, but they are risking letting my indoor cat out.  I have a mesh door upstairs and she is scared to death of it.  After installing this door quickly and easily, I am ready for summer!  It fits perfectly and closes tightly after someone (or a dog) goes through it.  Sometimes it needs a little help to get the magnets lined back up but for the most part, it works great.  It is still a little too cold here to leave the door open but we will be using it soon enough.  I would recommend this screen to anyone who needs a mesh door of this size.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Don't fight with heavy hoses anymore! Get an Expandable Hose from Quality Source Products (Review)

Quality Source Products expandable hose starts out at 33 Feet, hook it up to water pressure and it will grow to 100 Feet. When finished allow the water to drain from the hose and it will return to 33 feet for easy storage.  It is very lightweight, kink free, & tangle free.  Forget about lugging around that heavy traditional 100 foot hose and storing it year round. When not in use this hose can be stored in a small bucket or on a shelf.  This expandable hose is very strong with 100 PSI working pressure and 300-PSI burst pressure. You will not be disappointed.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review an expandable hose by Quality Source.  I was really shocked at how light it was when it arrived.  I took advantage of the first warm day here in Indiana to try it out by washing my new truck.  It hooked up easily and built up pressure quickly.  It has a shut-off valve on the end so you can adjust how much water comes out.  It is a pretty small hose in diameter so it didn't create a lot of pressure but it did work good to wash my truck.  I loved how light it was to pull around and think it will work great to water my roses this spring.  After I was done, I just unhooked it from the house and it sprang back to the normal size as the water ran out.  I would recommend this hose to anyone who doesn't want to fight with heavy hoses anymore.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Housebreak your pets easily with Doggie Lawn (Review)

Doggie Lawn is specially formulated, hydroponically grown grass is designed to work perfectly as an indoor dog potty, or outside on your balcony as a fresh potty patch. This dog grass weighs slightly more than one half as much as standard sod for easy lifting and is "soil-less" which means it contains virtually none of the dirt you find in sod sold in home improvement stores. Try it out and see for yourself how much you and your dog will love having their own convenient fresh patch of grass for bathroom breaks!
This product is also wonderful for cats, rabbits, turtles, hedgehogs etc.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a patch of Doggie Lawn.  I have seven dogs and a cat that typically stay in the house at night.  They are all housebroke and are on a perfect schedule.  They want let out on weekends at the same time they get let out through the week when my husband goes to work.  I had noticed awhile back that someone was peeing in front of the door every once in awhile at night and figured it might be one of the older dogs. I just thought they were having a hard time holding their bladder so long.  After this Doggie Lawn arrived, I noticed the cat was very attracted to it.  She was all over it before I even got it out of the box.  As soon as I got the patch in the tray, she was sniffing around in it.  I placed it in front of the door and introduced my dogs to it.  They had no interest in it.  I stayed back and kept an eye on it for awhile.  Finally, I saw the cat go over and pee in it!  She went back to it numerous times but I wanted her to use her litter box so I moved the patch next to it.  I couldn't believe she was the culprit the whole time!  She continued to pee on the patch sometimes and also used her litter box.  I figured she had an issue with the brand of litter I was using and changing that.  When the patch got worn out, I threw it out and have not seen any more pee in front of the door.  I don't know why she has always wanted to go outside even though she is an indoor cat.  She definitely liked the real grass.  I plan on using Doggie Lawn for my next litter of puppies because there is an obvious animal attractant to it.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to housebreak an animal.  Check out the website or follow them on Facebook or Twitter.

Get your daily dose of B-12 with Maxasorb B-12 Serum (Review)

Vita Sciences manufactures high quality supplements and lotions containing natural herbs, vitamins, and minerals.  The Maxasorb line of creams contain nutrients such as vitamin B12, vitamin D, vitamin E, melatonin and other nourishing ingredients. All of the products are hypoallergenic, non-greasy, easy to use and effective.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of Maxasorb B-12 Serum.  My doctor requires me to take B-12 pills everyday, which I hate.  When I found out that I could get my daily dose of B-12 by simply rubbing it in my hands, I had to give it a try.  It takes just two pumps of cream and it absorbs very quickly.  The scent is nice but does not last long.  It has a light moisturizing effect but does not last a long time either.  I have not noticed any reactions to my sensitive skin so I will continue to use it.  It definitely beats taking an extra pill everyday!  I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs B-12 and wants a much easier way to get their daily dose.  Check out the website for more information.

Get soft, silky skin with GoPure Fractionated Coconut Oil (Review)

The Fractionated Coconut Oil by GoPure is considered an all-natural type of carrier oil that is able to easily absorb into your skin, which makes it a go-to option for all types of topical therapies. It offers a feather-light emollient, providing a soothing barrier, without the risk of clogging your pores, and is ideal for dry or otherwise troubled skin. It provides the skin with a non-greasy, silky smooth feel, unlike the other vegetable carrier oils currently available. It is completely soluble with all types of essential oils and is odorless and colorless.  It will not stain any fabric it comes in contact with. It also has a prolonged shelf life, which means it will not go rancid and is designed for topical use only.
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of GoPure Fractionated Coconut Oil.  I have always been a huge fan of coconut oil but this is the first time I have used it in the liquid form.  I have always bought the tubs of solid oil that you have to let melt in your hand before applying.  Most of them leave me shiny and smelling like a Pina Colada.  That's fine with me but my husband hates the smell of coconut.  Since this oil from GoPure arrived, I will never go back to tub oils!  There is absolutely no scent to it.  It's a carrier oil so I can add my own essential oil to it if I want it to be scented.  it feels amazing as a massage oil and makes a great tanning oil.  I have been using it exclusively in my tanning bed and have gotten a nice tan from it.  It leaves my skin super soft and silky without the greasy look.  I would highly recommend this to anyone.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Take care of your callused feet easily with La Pedi-Bon (Review)

87% of adults in the US have some type of foot problem and one of the most common problems is calluses. Calluses are rough dry patches that form on the feet. Anyone with callused feet who want to have silky smooth healthy feet will love the La Pédi Bon callus remover.  This kit contains a battery operated foot callus remover, one replacement head, a cleaning brush, and instructions. Batteries are not included.

My Review: 
I recently had the chance to review a La Pédi Bon callus remover.  My pitiful feet were in dire need of this because I go barefoot all the time and I haven't been moisturizing them like I should be.  I didn't even realize how bad they were until I took a picture of them!  Summer is coming so it is time to get these ugly feet back to looking normal.
The first time I used La Pédi Bon, it made a big difference in how my feet felt and looked.  There was still a light callus and dry skin there but nothing compared to what it used to be.  It was so easy to use and automatically stopped if I pushed too hard.  I stopped when it felt smooth to me.

Every few days, I ran it over the spot again and my callus is literally disappearing!  Every time, my skin gets softer and smoother.  I love how this product requires virtually no effort.  No more tired arms from filing away with pumice and files to get callouses off!  I would definitely recommend La Pédi Bon to anyone who wants to get rid of calluses easily.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Create a beautiful photo blanket at (Review & Giveaway)

Keep you and your loved ones warm with a customizable photo blankets from CollageDotCom.  Each blanket is printed on high quality, durable fleece and is machine washable.  The shorter plush on the fleece blanket ensures your photos are as sharp as possible and is perfect for use as a wall hanging or quilt.
Photo blankets are the perfect, unique gift to show the loved ones in your life how much you care.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a customizable photo blanket from Collage.  I was able to choose any photo(s) and create my blanket easily online.  I chose these three photos that I took of my kids last fall.  I cherish the biggest picture because it was one of those rare moments that they allowed me to take their picture together without making silly faces.  It's one of my favorite pictures of them together so I wanted to get something special made with it.

I knew a photo blanket would be perfect for this.  The site was easy to navigate and it only took a few minutes to create my blanket.  I could change the color of my photos and the borders.  I could even add words if I wanted to!  There are lots of customization options to use if you wish.  I chose the simple black and white photos without any writing and I just love it!  The blanket is solid white on the back.  It is 50" X 60" and as you can see in the top photo, it is not large enough to cover a queen size bed.  It is the perfect size for lounging around or laying across a couch.  It would also make a nice wall hanging if you did not want to use it.  I think it would make a perfect gift idea for anyone.  Check out the website or follow them on FacebookTwitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.

One lucky winner will receive a code to customize their very own photo blanket for free!  To enter, just fill out the form below.  This is open to U.S. residents only.  Thank you for entering & good luck!
