Makeup Brush Holder Review

I recently got a set of these oval makeup brushes that are so popular recently, so I thought it would be great to have this brush holder. The brush holder has a hole for each brush in the set, and the bottom piece has holes to hold the bottoms of the brushes in place. The holder is very easy to assemble. It even comes with a tiny screwdriver to put it together. It holds the brushes nicely. 

The holder is made of hard clear plastic which goes perfectly with all of my other acrylic makeup holders. This keeps my brushes separated and safe from getting squished. The only issue I had is that it takes up more surface area than I have to spare on my vanity, but that's because I have so much stuff, also the mastic came a bit scuffed up, and scratched. I did think this was a useful brush holder that works very well.You can find it on Amazon Here.

#BehindTheBlogger : When You Love Someone

#BehindTheBlogger Sidebar Button

The topic for this Behind The Blogger Hop is "When you love someone" and this such a loaded topic, especially with some of the things happening in my life lately. This topic comes at a strangely symbolic time for me. Ill start by saying that when I love somebody, I give everything I have to that person. I put so much  of myself into that relationship, so much so that I sometimes lose myself and forget that someone should be doing the same for me. That's usually not the case, unfortunately. Let's face it, people can be selfish. When I love someone, and invest  my heart and time into them, I do everything in my power to make it work and work hard to fix the rough patches. I hang on and keep trying, sometimes to my detriment. I'm a communicator, so I like to talk things out and then move on. I notoriously put myself last, and focus on the person I love. I usually end up feeling neglected and not cared for because the other person doesn't work as hard to do the same. When I love someone I am sometimes blind. I sometimes gloss over the  bad things about them and amplify the good things. This usually leads to disappointment. When I love someone I put myself out there, become completely vulnerable, and trust, even though every experience in my life tells me not to. I don't want to go into relationships with fear. I want to be honest and open, and be myself. I want to "Love Fearlessly". The downside is that when that person  hurts you, it's devastating. I've experienced this more times than I'd like to admit, but no matter how many times, I've never lost hope for that kind of love that I've seen in movies or imagined since I was a little girl.  At this stage in my life, I've definitely had to let go of some of  The things that I thought that perfect love would be, because experience tells me that fairy tale love is just that, a fairytale. Love is not as easy as they make it look. Lol. I may be loving a little less fearlessly these days, but Ill never let go of that hope, because when you love someone, "hope springs eternal".

A Modern Way to Cook by Anna Jones: Book Review

I'm so excited to tell you all about an awesome book I recently read. This is a new Vegetarian Cookbook , A Modern Way to Cook, by Anna Jones, is fantastic. It's set up in a unique way to save you time. For vegetarians with a busy schedule, this is a must have.

The book is sectioned off by time it takes to make the recipe. There's a circled time at the top of each page to make finding a recipe , by how much spare time you have , quick and easy. This is great. You can get quick healthy dinners on the table every night. The book is full of beautiful pictures, but one thing I wished was different is that each recipe doesn't have a picture, only some of them. I like to see how the recipe looks . The book covers equipment for quick cooking, most of which I have in my kitchen already. Each recipe has an ingredient list, detailed instructions,and description.The recipes range frombbreakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts. One of my favorite things about the book is that it's filled with charts for making quick meals, like:
-10favorite omelet fillings
-At your desk salads
-Goodness Bowls
-20 minute stir fries
-Morning Smoothies
-Overnight Oats
-Flavor Boosts

These charts give you a list of components that make up the recipe and then a list of possible choices. It's a quick way to customize the recipe to your liking.
They also have several pages spread throughout the book with quick variations on some of your favorites. These include:
-10 simple baked potatoes
-5 one pan dinners
-quick fruit desserts

There's also a section is the book on investment cooking. The is comprised of recipes for things that you can make ahead of time to save you time on recipes throughout the week. These are things like nut butters, gronola , and homemade tofu. This book really has covered all the bases. It's recipes are flavorful and unique. I've been a vegetarian for 20 years. I'm always looking for new recipes, but vegetarian recipes can be time consuming and made with crazy hard to find ingredients. This book is the solution to my problem, with recipes like : Smoky root vegetable tacos with green Chile salsa, sweet potato lime and peanut soup, A grilled mushroom feast, and Honey almond and basil cheesecake. The author, Anna Jones is a cook, food writer and stylist. She worked with chef Jamie Oliver for many years. She lives in East London.

Onite Light Socket Adapter Review

These are great. I live in an old house with no electrical outlets outside. There are so many times that I have to run an extension cord through a window to plug something in outside, weather it's for a radio, or a vacuum to clean my car, or anything else. 

With these, all I need is a light bulb socket. I have a porch light. I just screw one of these in like I would a bulb, and it not only still gives a spot for a bulb but also two electrical outlets. It's great. This comes with a 2 pack. They are easy to use. They work very well. They screw in easily and it's easy to plug in anything you need. This comes in handy for Christmas lights. I was very :happy to get these.You can find these on Amazon Here.

Women's Evening Handbag Review

This is a fun bag for a wedding, or black tie affair. It's silver, with a metal loop handle and easy clasp. The front is decorate in rhinestones, in a flower and half circle pattern. It's very pretty. I found the rhinestones to look a little on the cheaper side, but in the evening this probably wouldn't show up. Without examining it closely you wouldn't notice.

 It is a fun sparkly bag. The inside is lined and it has a long chain that you can pull out and make it a shoulder bag. This is a nice little bag to dress up an outfit even more. It's perfect size to hold the essentials, like phone, money and a couple pieces of makeup. It closes securely and it's light weight. It will go with any color. Overall I liked it.You can find this bag on Amazon Here.

Litterbiotic Cat Litter Deodorizer Review

This deodorizer for my cats litter box was easy to use. I took away a star because there are no instructions, so I didn't know how much to use. I just shook some in and hoped for the best. The stuff has an odd smell close up, but I didn't notice that it was overpowering onece I put it in the box. It did seem to help to cut down on the smell of the litter box.

It doesn't add a heavy fragrance, but simply neutralizes the odors. The cats  didn't mind it. It's an all natural product so it's safe for my cats. Overall I thought it worked pretty well, but had I had some instructions it may have worked even better.You can find it on Amazon Here.

This is a nice towel set, with a large bath towel, a hand towel and a wash cloth. These are made well. They are durable. The towels are soft, but not very thick. I prefer my towels to be a bit more thick and fluffy. The bath towel is larger than the standard towel which I love.
