The Nanny with the Skull Tattoos

For the most part, I enjoyed this book. The first half of it, I really liked, and then after that it just seemed to kind of snowball for me. The characters made some really dumb choices that didn’t make any sense to me (especially after claiming contempt of another character just a few pages before), and the drama that followed was so predictable, it made my skin crawl just reading it. Other than that, the two main characters are very likable, I enjoyed how they came together, and the story in and of itself was very cute. I would have to say that I think you should read it and decide for yourself whether you liked it more or less than I did. Oh, also…I wish the skull tattoos has been explained–or at least, that he had outright asked her if they held any meaning to her, particularly with it being a part of the title. But that’s just my opinion πŸ™‚

The Product You Didn't Know You Needed

I was somewhat skeptical on trying the money belt, simply because it seemed like it would be a very unattractive way of keeping everything I need with me. Well, let’s be honest here: if you’re a lady and you’re sick of carrying your purse or you’re busy working out, wouldn’t it be much more practical to make sure all of your stuff is with you, without having the added weight and bulkiness of a purse? I mean, it’s not exactly easy to find a place for your cell phone and wallet in your work out shorts.

Β This is where the money belt comes in. It is functional and slim enough that it doesn’t get in your way. You’re able to pack quite a bit in it without noticing any bulk. You can bend and move freely, giving you all the practicality of a purse without the constriction.
Bonus included: RFID blocking sleeves for your credit cards and passport!
Great product, indeed.

Neutralyze Acne Treatment

I am 23-years-old, and I’ve been struggling with acne ever since I was about 9. Having dealt with it for all my life, I’ve tried just about every skincare product out there that has promised to rid my skin of the ever present breakouts, but I’ve never been able to find something that truly worked. Until now.

First off, this cleanser is the first heavy duty acne cleanser that doesn’t burn or make me feel like I’m peeling my face off. It actually feels really nice on my skin. It’s very smooth and not harsh on the least, and it leaves my face feeling soft and clean afterwards. The two steps that follow are the real clinchers and have helped my acne face tremendously. The redness and swelling has gone down, as have the constant breakouts. This is so much better than any other 3-step skincare routine I have tried, and I definitely plan on continuing this regimen. Thank you for a wonderful product!

Best Hematite Bracelet!

I had heard of hematite bracelets from a young age, and I’ve had the pleasure of being able to use a few hematite jewelry items and I’ve grown to really love them. This one in particular is a really great product. It’s lovely and can be dressed up or down, and it fits somewhat loose so that it isn’t digging into my skin or cutting off any circulation.

Almost immediately after I put the magnetic hematite bracelet on, I start to feel relief in my hand and wrist. I suffer from the beginning of arthritis and severe tendinitis, so I have quite a bit of pain in my hands and wrists on a daily basis, so any amount of relief I can get is an ab solutely wonderful feeling. I’m also going to school for Creative Writing, so I type a lot, which causes some pretty severe cramping and pain. I wear the hematite bracelet and I have much more endurance, the pain isn’t nearly as bad, and I’m able to type with ease.
All in all, I really love this bracelet and I’m so happy I ordered it! πŸ™‚

Review of Diskin Bluetooth Headphones

I am very picky about headphones. I don’t care for them if they’re too big, too bulky, too hot, …eh, you get the picture. So I have to admit, when the opportunity to purchase these particular headphones came about, I was hopeful but skeptical. Particularly with them being connected via Bluetooth–this was completely uncharted territory for me, and yes; I was intimidated.
First thing’s first: I made the syncing process WAY more complicated than it needed to be. Take it from me: don’t keep pressing the button and then wondering why it’s not working. KEEP HOLDING THE BUTTON until it flashes blue and red. Oi. It’s written in the instructions, but I swear I could not get my head around it. It’s embarrassing how technologically illiterate I can be!
ANYWAY. Like I said, I’m very picky when it comes to headphones, but these are amazing. I knew as soon as I placed them over my ears that I would love them. They fit snug to my ears without being too tight, and they don’t overheat or make me sweat. My favorite feature to these headphones is the noise cancellation feature. It’s a simple switch and it completely isolates all sound so you can focus completely on the sound coming from your Bluetooth-enabled device. It’s amazing!
Long battery life, incredible bass, and very clear sound. I’m very hard to please in the headphone area, and I honestly do not have a complaint about these at all. I highly, highly recommend! Well worth the splurge.

Review of Cast Iron Owl Door Stop

As I mentioned in another review I wrote recently, I’m pretty much obsessed with owls. I love just about everything owl-related, and I’ve just recently started using owls in my decorating.
The cast iron owl door step is beautiful. I love cast iron, and one of the best things about this particular product is that it stays where it’s supposed to. I personally haven’t been using it as a door stop, but I have been using it as a simple decoration. It looks lovely just sitting up where it can be shown off πŸ™‚ I have also thought about using it as a bookend, which I think would look just as nice. Cast iron is beautiful, and this door stop is no different. I love the detail in the owl, and as you will see in the pictures, it looks great either as a door stop or as a decoration πŸ™‚ I highly recommend this for all owl lovers everywhere!

Review of Cast Iron Owl Trivet

I am obsessed with owls. I love just about anything owl-related, and I’ve slowly been integrating them into the decorating of my house. So obviously when I saw this trivet, I somewhat freaked out and knew I wanted it. πŸ˜‰
First off, with the trivet being cast iron, it’s quite heavy, which means it’s not flimsy–and that’s always a good thing! There are rubber feet that keep it from slipping or sliding anywhere, and the weight also helps keep it in place. It keeps the heat from emanating into any of the surfaces and it looks great while doing so πŸ™‚ Even if I’m not using the trivet for any hot items at the time, I leave it out as a decoration and it looks great. I love the look of it; kind of antique-y and classy πŸ™‚ This is the perfect product if you’re an owl lover like me, and it would make a great Christmas present!

You'll Feel Golden With the Nu Yuu 24K Gold Foil Serum!

I won’t lie; when I first saw this product, I thought it was overly hyped just to get more sales. I didn’t understand the deal with the gold flakes, and I really just thought it was too ostentatious to actually work well on your face. HOWEVER, I soon discovered my initial impressions were very wrong. I’m just 23, so I don’t struggle with fine lines or wrinkles (yet), but I do have a couple scars on my face, as well as chronic acne, and I had heard that the gold flakes along with the Vitamin C in the serum could help with these things.
First off: the texture of the serum is very nice. It goes on smooth and doesn’t make my face feel oily or leave a sticky residue. Even though it’s not technically a moisturizer, my face immediately feels more hydrated after I use it, and after only a week, I have already noticed a difference in my skin’s texture. I’ve also noticed a reduction in the scars, as well as a slight decrease in blemishes.
One of the things I love most about this serum is the way the gold flecks stay on my face and add a little sparkle. It almost looks like glitter, and it adds a nice bit of radiance to my complexion, and I don’t feel like I have to wear as much bronzer now πŸ™‚ All in all, I’m very happy with this product and I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to improve the look of their skin. πŸ™‚

Luseta Shampoo & Conditioner

I am a huge fan of tea tree oil, so when I saw this shampoo and conditioner set, I knew I wanted to try it out. First off, let me just say that I love the smell of both the shampoo and conditioner. The tea tree and Argan oil blend perfectly together, and the way the shampoo feels on my scalp is so luxurious and immediately gives it a clean and relaxed feeling. The shampoo and conditioner leave my hair looking fuller, shinier, and healthier, and I love that I’m not putting harmful chemicals on my hair and scalp each time I wash it now! The shine and fullness is so incredibly nice, I can’t believe it has improved this much since using this set. Honestly, I would enjoy using the shampoo just for the smell, but the additional benefits my scalp and hair are receiving make it ten times better. My head isn’t as itchy and I haven’t been getting as much dandruff. Tea tree and argan oil are meant to be together, my friends, and you won’t find anything better for your hair than this (in my opinion). I highly recommend it πŸ™‚

Review of Nexcon Car Mount

Being in the generation I’m in, I have a smart phone. And since I always have my phone on me, I obviously have my phone while I’m in the car. And when it comes to driving, I can never really find a place to set my phone. After frustratingly setting my phone either in my center console or in the cup holder, I finally found this car mount.
What I love so much about this car mount is that it is small and doesn’t take up a lot of space. I also don’t have to work really hard at getting my phone to fit in it because the magnet eliminates anything to put my phone “into.” This makes it so hassle free, it’s amazing. You can easily position your phone in vertical or horizontal mode, and the magnet is strong enough, the phone won’t slip in either position.IMG_5330 IMG_5331 IMG_5332 IMG_5334 IMG_5335
Small con: the mount weighs down the vent in my car, so it makes it difficult to adjust them. Not a big deal if no one is using that vent at the time, but if I or they want it, it can be a little annoying. In my opinion, though, it’s very much worth it.
