12 Set Makeup Brush Review

Saying that I am a makeup lover, makeup enthusiast, makeup connoisseur is an understatement. I love playing with makeup, experimenting and taking lots of pictures. Nobody, including myself can do much of that without a great set of brushes. This set of 12 brushes from Petunia Skincare is just that. This set has it all: 12 sturdy and soft brushes, and a convenient case that can easily roll up and travel with you. This set has all of the brushes you need to do professional quality makeup on yourself or others. This set comes with a complete set of these 12 studio quality brushes :

You also get brush guards to help protect and maintain the brush shape.The brushes are handmade from high quality pony hair, goat hair, and synthetic hair for a soft precise application.These brushes work great. They are very soft, and they distribute makeup evenly. There's a brush for every part of your makeup routine. The bases are strong  and sturdy. These brushes are easy to clean with warm water and gentle shampoo. The only complaint I would have is that there is a strong chemical smell when you first open the roll of brushes, probably from the brand new case,  but that subsides once it airs out. The case is really nice and sleek, and takes up hardly any space when it's rolled up. The brushes themselves are very nice looking too.My favorite part about these brushes is that Petunia Skincare is a member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and does not test any products on animals, and no animals are harmed to create these brushes.

Kitchen Grinder Set Review

I am a huge fan of having fresh ground salt and pepper on my table. This grinder set by BobuCuisine is awesome. The design is really sleek and attractive. They are black and white, so they go with any kitchen. They are so easy to use, which is actually my favorite part. I've used many different grinders, and most of them have some ridiculous way to  put the salt and pepper in, some tiny piece you have to pry open on the bottom for example. These grinders are so easy to use, they have a simple screw top so they are so easy to refill. They are really nice quality,made from glass. The grinder itself works flawlessly with an easy turn.  It also lets you adjust the size from fine to coarse. They also have convenient covers that pop on when the grinders are not in use to keep your salt and pepper fresh. They are easy to clean.These grinders would make a great gift for pretty much anyone. I love my grinder set. If you want to get one for yourself or for a gift you can find it on Amazon here.

Vallhala Luggage Scale Review

I don't travel all the time but I am lucky enough to go to Hawaii each year with my boyfriend. When we travel the luggage prices are $50 per suitcase, so we always try to share a suitcase. Of course being a girl this is not easy for me. I like to be prepared for ever situation, so I don't pack light, not to mention I have a makeup and hair arsenal to bring. If you are a frequent flyer then you know what a nightmare it can be to find out your bag is over then weight limit when you're at the airport. That's why I'm so excited about this Vallhala Luggage Scale. Last year when we traveled to Hawaii I had this exact problem, and in the middle of the airport I had to open my suitcase and take out the excess stuff and disperse it among all of our carry on bags. This was such a nightmare. This year I am so happy that I won't have to deal with this problem. This luggage scale is easy to use. It's basically a handle that you clip onto  your luggage,and the handle has a built in digital scale that weighs your bag.It even has an LED flashlight built in, which could come in handy in many situations.
It's very small and lightweight, so it would be easy to carry along with you.I'm excited to have an easy travel experience this year because of my new luggage scale. If you wanna pick up one of these for yourself you can find it on Amazon here.

Spacoustic Review

Spacoustic is a program created by Prescription audio. Prescription Audio uses the healing power of sound to relieve stress, depression, anxiety, insomnia and addiction. The programs use audio vibrations layered into the  audio tracks using Quantam Harmonics. These programs are a totally natural and clinically tested and proven. The program that I was able to try was called "Chill". This is a stress relief program that allows you to reach profound levels of relaxation.

You don't need years of practicing meditation to timberland with this program. The program guides your brainwave patterns from relaxing alpha frequencies to meditative theta states within minutes. Let's face it, we all need some stress relief in our everyday life. This program let's you  get that much needed relaxation in just a few minutes. I thought the program was very relaxing. It's amazing how what seems to be some relaxing sounds and a soothing voice can make you relax, but it's also the sound waves layered into it that created something truly relaxing. This program takes very little time out of your day and it really is relaxing. It has a very quick effect on your whole body. I physically felt my muscles relax and my breathing slow down. I was impressed. Acoustic has various programs for different results, including smoking cessation, weight loss, insomnia, and inner balance.

This is the second konjac sponge that I have had the opportunity to try.

When you get it it sort of seems like a rock, very hard , but as soon as you add water to it, it becomes soft and pliable. It's 100% pure vegetable fiber, and has no additives. It's great for sensitive skin, which is very important to me, because that's exactly what I have. I had no reactions to this sponge. The sponge is designed to improve the texture of your skin, because it gently exfoliates, while cleansing and removing toxins from the skin. The natural woven fibers are designed to stimulate blood flow and the bamboo charcoal that's added contains activated carbon, and minerals to deeply cleanse and absorb excess sebum, toxins, and chemicals. It helps to make your pores smaller, and brightening and tightening your skin. It's free of parabens, sulphates and chemicals, and it's biodegradable. Even the packaging is 90% compostable.

Easy@Home Ovulation and Pregnancy Test Review.

This box set of 50 ovulation and 20 pregnancy tests is designed for women who are trying to have a baby. The ovulation tests give you a good way to predict your most fertile days, even when your cycle length varies, and the pregnancy tests tells you if you're pregnant before a missed period. These tests are extremely easy to use, you simply collect urine in a container , and dip the test up to a clearly marked line for 3 seconds and then lay it flat. It works the same for both types of test. They are very simple to read. One line and you are not pregnant, or not ovulating, depending on which strip you are using. Two lines, and you are. These tests results are 99.8% accurate. The tests all come in one small box. They are clearly marked and color coded. They are also super compact and small so the whole box takes up very little room.

There is a simple diagram on the box that tells you how to use both tests, and there are plenty of both to last while you are trying for a baby. We all know how expensive just one test can be, so this is a great alternative if you are trying to get pregnant and are testing more often. One great kit for only $21.99 and that's about how much you might pay for 2 good pregnancy tests. It's a great deal, and very convenient. I used both tests, and they were simple and worked well, with very clear results. I am not pregnant, but I am closer to understanding my ovulation cycle. If you would like to get this set you can find it on Amazon here.

I have, for a very long time, wanted to publish a book of poetry that I have written, so when I had the opportunity to try this ebook, 6 Step Plan To E Publishing, I was really excited. The first line of the campaign to review this book was "Is the only thing stopping you from e-publishing your book the "how" to get it done?" and I thought YES! That's me!. This is a beginners guide on how to publish and market your book with Amazon KDP, written by Ally Nathaniel.

Bully Sticks Review

Bully sticks are an all natural chew for your dog. I don't know about you but I love all natural products, not just for me but for my pets too, after all they are part of your family. Did you know that chewing gives your dog a sense of comfort, and calms them? It's also a great way to clean thier teeth, and keep them strong. These chews are great for your dogs health and teeth. They are 100% pure beef, with no chemicals, or preservatives. They are gluten and grain free, and easy to digest. They are very strong so they last a long time. They are low in fat, and a great source of protein.
    My dog absolutely went crazy for these as soon as I opened the bag. She is a relentless chewer, so she did manage to destroy the bully sticks, lol but she loved the taste of it, and it kept her busy for hours. I love that they are all natural, and still great tasting for my dog. So I'm giving her a treat to enjoy, while also helping to make her teeth and body healthier. Another great thing is that these sticks are odor free, which is great, because some of the dog treats you get have the worst smells, and sometimes it's hard to believe they like the taste lol. Also it says on the package that a portion of your purchase goes to help dog rescues across the US, and I love that. That's reason enough even without all the great benefits of bully sticks to buy them. If you want to get some for your dog, you can find them on Amazon here.

Insta Natural Dead Sea Mud Mask

I love skin care products, and especially masks. Even more than that I love natural products like this. This mask is an all- natural detox and purifier for your skin that comes from the dead sea. You know you hear all sorts of great things about products made from the dead sea. The dead sea contains many minerals that are great for your skin, like: magnesium, sodium, bromine, potassium and calcium. The  ingredients in this mask are pure dead sea mud, organic shea butter, organic jojoba oil, organic aloe vera juice, organic calendula oil, and hickory bark extract. That to me equals soothed, moisturized, and healthy skin. This mask works to absorb oil, dirt, and toxins that are in your skin. It also helps to clear pimples and blackheads, and restore an even skin tone and smoother skin. Not only is this a facial mask, but you can also use it as a body treatment, for muscle aches.  I love masks, because they make me feel like I get a mini trip to the spa. This mask is no exception, It has a cooling effect on your skin, that feels great. I did this mask with my boyfriends daughter, and we loved it. My skin felt awesome afterward, soft and looking great. Also, I had the piece of mind of knowing that I was putting all natural ingredients into my skin. There are no chemicals, or anything harmful in it..It comes in a huge bottle so it will last forever. My favorite part is that it's not tested on animals, which is very important to me. It's also made in the USA, which is always a plus. I've been using this mask once a week in combination with my normal skin care routine, and my skin feels healthy and wonderful.If you wanna try this great mask you can get it on the company's website here.

Ultrasonic Dog Training Whistle

This dog training whistle is a great tool for getting your dog to learn basic commands without disturbing the neighbors. While this whistle is audible to humans, it,s not loud and obnoxious.This whistle has an adjustable pitch so you can find the correct frequency. The whistle is light weight and very small so you can easily carry it with you.It comes with a great ebook to teach you how to use the whistle to train your dog.This whistle can get your dog's attention when nothing else seems to work. My impressions of the whistle were that it was a great small size. It fits easily in my pocket, so it's great to take with me when I walk my dog. It took me a bit of time to find a frequency that worked with my dog, but when I did she definitely responded to the sound. She didn't seem afraid of the noise,which is good because I don't like the idea of her obeying me out of fear.Basically what it did was get her attention so she knew I meant business. I'm still working with her with the whistle and I think with some time and patience it will really make a difference. If you'd like to try your hand a training with the whistle you can get one on Amazon here.

Lemon Oil Review

Everywhere lately I see information and ads for essential oils and how beneficial they can be. This lemon oil is 100% pure with no fillers or additives. This scent helps to uplift and clear the mind. It's great for aromatherapy, and it also has many other great uses such as :

  • Add drops into water to aid in digestion,help with weight loss and boost your mood
  • A natural antiseptic and disinfectant
  • It has a positive effect on dress, fever, infections, asthma,obesity,insomnia,skin disorders,and stomach problems.
  • A natural cleanser for your home for metal, dishes, and clothes,polishing leather,jewelry,and wood furniture.

This oil is a natural alternative to many of your household and personal care items.The oil smells awesome, very refreshing and I can definitely see how it can have uplifting properties. It comes in a nice large bottle with a dropper top that makes it easy to control the amount you are using. I used the oil in making some great homemade personal care products, that smelled wonderful. I also tried it out as a jewelry cleaner and I was really impressed. Check king out.
I had a silverbracelet that was really tarnished and I just put a few drops of lemon oil on a q tip and rubbed it on. This is what came off....

Gross but now the bracelet is shiny and bright again. See....

I also tried it for cleaning in the kitchen and bathroom, it is great. It cleans well and leaves that fresh, clean scent behind.I also tried it as a furniture polish, and it works great. It still has that great lemon scent you love from your normal furniture polish, but it's all natural.
 Like I said this is a huge bottle and you just need a few drops and it goes a long way. I didn't get to try every one of the many uses yet but from  what  I've seen, I'm excited.If you want to get some for yourself you can find it on Amazon here.
