#BehindTheBlogger: My Kinda Freedom

Once again I'm excited to be participating in this great #BehindTheBlogger blog hop, where you can get to know your favorite bloggers a little better. This weeks topic is "My Kind Of Freedom".
    My Kind of freedom is freedom of expression. I love to express myself through art and writing. I find it therapeutic to pour my emotions into creating art and poetry. It relaxes me and eases stress. My newest love is art journaling. There are no limits, I can create any and all of the craziness that goes on inside my head, and it combines 2 of my loves, art, and writing.
      I've been writing poetry since I was 10 years old. I love to write and create emotional work. Anything that evokes a strong emotion anytime I read it is something I'm proud of. I also have always loved to create art in all kinds of mediums. I have done some detailed work in my life, landscapes, portraits, but my heart is in abstract art. It is full of emotion, and creativity, like myself. I can just put any emotion I'm feeling into an abstract piece of art, and it's a powerful thing.
  Freedom is so open to interpretation. There are  so many ways we can experience freedom. To have the freedom to just be myself and experience life in the way that makes me happy is one of the best things in life. I hope all of you are living free to be you and to enjoy your life and the things you love.

 It would make a great gift , or you could even split it up and make several gift baskets, with an infuser, some tea and a nice mug. These infusers are BPA free and rust free. They are made from eco friendly food grade  silicone and stainless steel. These are durable and high quality. They are reusable for many many cups of tea.They are dishwasher safe, which make cleanup simple.
These infuser are a really cute leaf design, so you have an easy handle,that protects your hands from the hot water. and they are so simple and easy to put together, use and clean.The small holes eliminate most of the floating herbs you get with some infuser. It also comes with a little silicone drip tray to set it on after steeping.This is a great set for yourself  or your favorite tea lover. If you'd like to get one you can find it on Amazon Here.

VIA Cosmetics Ultra Mud Mask Review

I love mud masks and this one is no exception. This VIA Cosmetics UltraSonic is a treatment for men and women , with any skin type, however it's not recommended for ultra sensitive skin . This is an exfoliating and clarifying mask made with a  6% blend of Salicylic, Mandelic, Glycolic and Azlaic acids. These acids help with skin resurfacing and regeneration. It also uses nutrient rich bentonite and lanolin clays infused with botanical extracts and antioxidants. The mask helps to extract impurities from your pores and clears your skin of toxins.
This mask has several components that have amazing benefits for your skin.

  • Glycolic Acid is naturally extracted from sugar cane and pineapple plants. It exfoliates, improves skin texture, reduces wrinkles and enlarged pores. It boosts collagen production
  • Salicylic Acid deep cleans the skin and unclogged pores, prevents blackheads.
  • Mandelic Acid, naturally derived from bitter almonds, contains antiseptic properties, and promotes healing
I really liked the nice cooling effect of the mask. It made my skin feel really fresh and clean.. The mud mask is made in the USA and all products are cruelty free which is so important to me. The mask contains no parabens, sulfate or harmful ingredients.If you'd like to try this mask, you can find it Here.

Electronic Foot File Review

So I am a huge fan of these new electronic foot files on the market. My feet need lots of help. This particular electronic foot file is a really nice set, that would make a great gift. It comes in a versatile color, that could be great for men or women. It comes with a nice little velour carrying case and two grinding heads with different grits.

This little tool works so great. It really does a job like no normal foot file could ever do, with very little work. Your hand won't get tired filing away because this machine does all the work for you. It's very gentle, but really gets down deep to get rid of all of your heel callous in a short time. You will be amazed at how much comes off on just the first use.This is such a simple product to use, you will be amazed. My feet need all the help they can get but this tool is my new best friend. The only thing that would make it better would be to have a power cord instead of being battery operated, so it's rechargeable, but other than that, this is truly amazing.If you'd like to get one of your own, you can find it on Amazon Here.

#BehindTheBlogger : If I Could Turn Back Time

I like to say that I have no regrets in life, but here's what I actually mean. I'm not sure that I would change anything in the past...If I Could Turn Back Time. I've made plenty of mistakes, there are plenty of people I wished I never met, I've had a lot of heartache, and pain, but all of these things are part of what made me the person that I am today, who I believe to be strong and insightful. If I had never had to overcome anything in my life I may have been happier sooner, but maybe the next obstacle in life, because there's always something, would have destroyed me, because I had no idea what to do, but because of my past as it is,when that next obstacle inevitably comes my way,  I will cry for a while, hard, and then I will pick myself up, and start making it through one day at a time. It will take everything I have, until one day, it doesn't, and I'll realize I'm no longer holding back the tears and I've made it through another tough spot. Maybe if I had never been with the wrong people in my life, I would never have learned the red flags to watch for, so I don't make those mistakes again. Maybe if I had never been forced to stand up for myself when people tried to tear me down, then I wouldn't have learned to do it at all. Maybe I would still be scared and never have realized that sometimes, even if it takes everything you have, you have to be brave.Maybe if I had never seen people I cared about go through struggles and pain I never would have learned compassion and empathy.Maybe if I had not been beaten down with other peoples words so many times, I would not have learned not to hurt other people myself, but instead I learned that I only want to build people up, and never make them feel bad about themselves. Maybe I would be a completely different person, with no worries, and no past, but I happen to like the depth of my soul and the wisdom I have gained. I may have been down more than I was up, I may have wasted a lot of time, I may have struggled, and cried, and hurt, and been through it all, but I don't think I would change any of it, because it has all made me who I am. I am not perfect, I still have flaws, but I know exactly who I am, and I'm good with it, and  and I have earned every scar and bruise along the way to getting here.

......Maybe if I had not spent forever writing a great post for this blog hop that I felt really good about, and then accidentally deleted it :( I would not have been able to write a new one and might have missed out on some important little addition that might have made it just perfect. ;) Everything happens for a reason, even the setbacks. Learn from them and move on.

Shredded Memory Foam Pillow Review

My sleep is less than great, and a big part of it is trying to find a pillow that doesn't hurt my neck. That part is almost impossible. This shredded memory foam pillow comfortably shapes to your head and neck in any position while also giving you support. A good night's sleep is so important to your over all health and well being.

 There will be no flipping this pillow for the cool side, this pillow has a Kool Flow bamboo cover, so it stays nice and cool all through the night.This high quality foam will never go flat, it always goes back to its original shape. This pillow isn't like your typical memory foam pillow which can be pretty flat. This one is a very full pillow, and a little bit firm. I found it to be just a little thicker than I like, but it is very squishy and comfy. I love the fact that it stays cool all night. Overall I was happy with it. I am a big fan of memory foam. I think you'll like this. If you want to get one for yourself, you can find it on Amazon

Purse Key Clip Review

This product is something I never would have thought of, until I saw it. It is so useful. I am constantly digging around in my purse looking for my keys, and it drives my boyfriend insane. This handy and sturdy little hard plastic clip makes it simple and convenient, to quickly grab my keys. All you do is clip one side of the hook into one of those small pockets on the side of the interior of your purse, then just snap your key ring into the other side and there they stay.

 There is no more searching for your keys. When you are ready to use them you just easily snap them out of the hook. This is so simple yet so ingenious.When you want to switch purses it's so easy to just pull it out, but yet it holds your keys tight when it's attached. The clips come in a 3 pack and a variety of fun colors. You will love this. Every girl needs one. If you want to get a package for yourself, you can find them on Amazon Here.

Angel Craft Podge Review

I am very familiar with this type of product. I use Mod Podge regularly. This craft podge is great for all kinds of crafty products like decoupage, paper crafting, scrapbooking, and photo collages. My favorite part about this craft podge is that it has a convenient brush cap, which makes it easy to use without a mess or extra utensils to clean up. This craft podge dries fast and clear with a semi gloss finish.

 I use it a lot for art journaling, it protects and seals whatever masterpiece you are working on, with a great finished glossy look.The uses are endless. If it gets on your fingers, it's easily washable with soap and water. It's non toxic, so it's safe for kids to use too.

Black Cowboy Hat with Red Paisley Bandanna Review

Halloween is my absolute favorite Holiday. I am always looking for fun ways to dress up. One thing that I have never been for Halloween is a Cowgirl, so I was really excited to get to try out this black cowboy hat and red bandanna from SSAA Accessories. This is an adult black cowboy hat and it comes with a red  bandanna, but it comes in a variety of color combinations. This is a classic color combination, that will make you look like an authentic cowboy, or girl. This is amazing for Halloween, but it would also be great if you are in a play and need a cowboy costume, or if you just like to do some role playing. The hat is 100% Polyester Felt, so it's really soft, but unlike a cheap dress up cowboy hat, this hat is solid and sturdy. The bandanna is 100% cotton, and very large. It's soft and comfortable to wear around your neck. This set is really affordable at $14.99. We all know the extreme costs of Halloween costumes. The great thing about this is that it gives you the key pieces you need for a cowboy costume, and you can easily make the rest of the costume out of what you have at home, like jeans, a flannel shirt, and some boots. Pair that with some pig tails(if you're a cowgirl) and you've got yourself a great costume for only $14.99.Not only that, but you can use it for years to come because it is not a throwaway costume, this is a long lasting quality set. I love this set, and I am definitely gonna be a cowgirl this year for Halloween.

 If you want to pick up a set for yourself, you can find it on Amazon here.

Broom Organizer Review

I have been looking for something like this for a long time. This product is the perfect organizing tool for your home or garage. This organizer holds mops, brooms, sports equipment and much more. This basically holds anything with a handle in its adjustable rolling balls, and then even more with the retractable hooks. It is easy to install, and easy to use. This product solves a common organizational problem easily. This would be great in the garage for shovels, rakes and other yard tools. It would be great in the house for your brooms, mops, and other cleaning tools. You could use it in the basement, closet or anywhere else you have the need. The rolling ball system makes it easy to adjust to each handles thickness. Each ball can hold up to 7 and 1/2 pounds.

It provides a secure grip on all of your tools, and keeps them against the wall in a compact and organized way. I love this product. I have it in my kitchen, and I think ill be getting another one for my garage.This is a simple but useful organizing tool for every household.If you would like one of these storage systems , you can find it on Amazon here.

Naturalico Rechargeable Electronic Pedicure Foot File Review

OK, I need to talk to you all about the most amazing discovery of my life! Though I hate to post this online, for everyone to know, my feet are horrible. There, I said it. My heels are dry and cracked, and not even a little bit pretty. I live in flip flops or barefoot and it has taken it's toll. No matter what tools I have tried, it does not fix the problem. I am not consistent with a foot file because its so much work to do it endlessly . I just don't have the time or forethought. Now, I have found the answer to this problem. This electronic foot file is essentially a rotating sander for your feet. It is so easy, and fast to shave off years of dead skin and get down to the soft layers of my feet finally!!! I know this is gross, but I am so excited that I don't even mind telling you all about how much my feet needed this.
  Let's talk about the product itself. First of all, it's rechargable, so you don't have to use tons of batteries, you just plug it in and recharge. It's really cute and pretty it's accented with a lavender color and sparkles, so girly. It comes with a little brush to clean it, and an extra replaceable sanding head, that it so easy to change.  It has a powerful motor that spins 360 degrees at speeds of 40 turns per second. It has 2 speeds, so you can choose what you need for your feet, I always use the fastest setting myself. It is equipped with an LED light so you can see clearly all of your trouble spots.When you are using it, it is gentle, but so powerful. Within minutes it is sanding the dead skin off of your feet. My feet have not looked so good in years. This is my new best friend, and because its so easy to use, I have been using it more consistently. There is no dread of the time consuming and tiring classic foot filing. I love it. Everyone should have one. This is my results in just about 10-15 minutes.(I know this is gross, but it is so amazing)

Here are my terrible feet before Naturalico Electronic Foot File

This is about half of what I filed off  in about 10 minutes.

And this is my new improved heel, just after one use.

They are only getting better every time I use it.The cracks are so deep in my heels, but now they are almost gone. I'm thrilled.
If you want to get one of these amazing tools you can find it on Amazon here.
