Xtava Dolce Ceramic Flat Iron with MicroProcessor Review #flatironclassy

The Only Flat Iron That You Will Ever Need!

I am in my 50's and have tried different flat irons, but didn't get the results I was looking for. I was never sure of the heat setting and didn't want to dry out my hair.  I love the beautiful design and that it has a LCD display so you know the temperature you are using.  It heats fast and the controls on the side let you pick the perfect setting. 

My hair is naturally wavy and goes everywhere.  You can see on the left side where I used the DOLCE Ceramic Flat Iron.  It glides smoothly and evenly over your hair.  It only took me a couple of minutes to straighten my hair.  I am thrilled with the results!

The Xtava DOLCE Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron/Hair Straightener straighten my hair without drying it out. Because of its precise heat settings, I was able to use the proper temperature.  It also has an automatic shut off when not in use.  There is a digital locking function so it can not be tampered with.
As an added bonus, there is a wonderful heat resistant bag included with the flat iron.  This is perfect for when you are on the go or traveling. 

I absolutely love this flat iron! No matter your age or hair type, this flat iron will make you look amazing.  No more rushing in the morning and worrying if you left your flat iron on.  You can start your day knowing you look marvelous.

The sacko lunch bag has two tall outside mesh pockets that are perfect for holding your water bottles or other drinks. It has a roomy front zippered pocket and a top zippered opening.  The zippers are very good quality.

How I Made a Photo Box For $2.00! #photobox

Do you want to take professional-looking photos for your website, but lack the money for a photo box?  

The above photo was taken in a photo box that I made for $2.00 using two pieces of presentation board from a store that sells everything for a dollar. I also use the light from my stove as a spot light.  You can make the photo box out of  poster board, but I prefer the presentation board because it is stronger.  If you wish to use poster board, there are a number of colors you can choose from.  Besides white, I also tried black presentation board, but found that it did not photograph as well as the white.

Just put one piece of presentation board or poster board on top of the stove and another against the back.  You can cut the back piece to fit.  I left mine at an angle.  The light above the stove makes a nice spot light.  You could also add more lighting on the sides. 
 Because some items you may be photographing have a reflective surface like a mirror, make sure to enlarge the picture to check for any oddities.  You don't want readers seeing you in your torn shirt and sweat pants or worse.

Experiment with different materials, positioning and lightning to get the desired effect you are looking for.  I wouldn't advise putting your children or pets on the stove photo box, only smaller items.  Just thought I needed to put a disclaimer out there.  Hope this makes your life a little easier.

Premium Delicates Laundry Bags, Set of 4 Review #laundry

Looking For A Premium Quality Wash Bag To Protect Your Clothing?  Look No Further!  InsideSmarts Has Exactly What You Need.

I have ruined delicate clothing by having them snag on other clothing in the laundry.  The bags I have tried still did not provide enough protection.  As soon as I opened the package, I knew that the Premium Delicates Laundry Bags were exactly what I have been looking for.  The bags are high quality mesh which feel smooth to the touch.  

There are four different sizes - 1 Large Black bag, 1 Large White Bag and 2 Medium Bags.  I found that all my fine wash fit into the two sizes provided. 

One feature that especially stands out from other laundry bags is the rust-proof zipper and zipper guard.  No more noisy zippers and no more zippers snagging your other laundry. 

I use the large white laundry bag for my delicate whites such as lingerie, bras and lacy shirts.

I use the large black laundry bag for my delicate clothing as well as my husband's black socks so they don't get separated in the wash.  

The two medium size white bags are perfect for smaller white delicates.
These laundry bags are made to last and have a money-back guarantee. My fine clothing comes out looking new and without snags.  I save money by extending the life of my favorite clothes. 

The Premium Delicates Laundry Bags are the only bags I need to protect my fine clothing.

Garcinia Cambogia Extract 85 % HCA Complex-2 Review #Garcinia

A New Thinner You This Year!

I started taking Garcinia Cambogia Extract at the beginning of the year.  I love that it is 100% natural.  It is a natural source of calcium which all women need.  I am confident about taking the extract and I don't have to worry about any harmful ingredients.  I am not good with diets, but with Garcinia Cambogia I was able to not eat in between meals and actually ate less.  I did not have the food cravings that I normally have. 

Garcinia Cambogia is also a fat blocker which is a bonus.  I added a healthy diet and exercise.  I am happy to say that I feel better and have lost weight.  There is a 100% money back guarantee, so you have got nothing to lose (but weight).  I am so happy I have found a natural way to lose weight.  It has also made me more energetic and on track for working out.  Sometimes we just need that little push to get us going on the right path.  Garcinia Cambogia has helped me tremendously.

The Chase Book Review #TheChase

Set sail for an amazing adventure

From the first page of The Chase I was hooked.  The book has everything you want in a thriller, including international intrigue.  The main character, Avri, is sailing his yacht in the Aegean Sea off the coast of Turkey.  He is on a relaxing vacation when suddenly something collides with his yacht.  A Russian submarine discovers it has lost it's spying antenna.  Both the skipper and the submarine captain do whatever is necessary to survive. 

The Chase is a hard book to put down.  There is adventure at every turn.  It was very detailed, but easy to follow.  This is the best thriller I have read in a long time.  I am looking forward to reading the next book by Herzel Frenkel.

Fruit Infuser Water Bottle Review #InfuserWaterBottle

Why keep putting out a lot of money for sugary drinks or flavored water? The Fruit 26 Oz Infuser Bottle is all you need to make delicious natural fruit flavored beverages.

I have been working hard to change bad habits to become healthier.  One big change is to drink more water and cut out sugary and caffeinated  drinks.  The FlavFusion Water Bottle combines water with fresh or froze fruit to make a healthy, but delicious drink.  Above is fresh fruit.
This is frozen fruit that I used in the Fruit Infuser Water Bottle.  My husband "borrowed" my bottle, so I took a picture for evidence. 
Both fresh or frozen fruit work equally well.  I fill the infuser bottle with fruit and refrigerate overnight for more infused water.  I grab the bottle in the morning instead of coffee or other drinks.  It helps me get a fresh start to my day.  Other drinks leave you feeling tired later in the morning.  
Up to now, I had not had much success in drinking water instead of other drinks.  Bottled drinks are expensive.  I absolutely LOVE my Fruit Infuser Water Bottle! Now I get fruit and water together for a inexpensive, delicious drink.

Vitamin C Lotion [Natural & Organic] by Foxbrim Review #foxbrim

I have been looking for a good quality, but natural and organic lotion.  I was very excited to try Foxbrim Vitamin C Lotion.

Natural and organic ingredients are very important to me.  Foxbrim Vitamin C Lotion is all natural and organic! It is made with Vitamin C, Aloe Vera, MSM, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Green Tea.  I have very dry skin and Foxbrim Vitamin C Lotion is non-greasy and absorbs easily.  It doesn't have any added fragrance, so it will not overwhelm any perfume or cologne you may be wearing.  It is a wonderful skin product for men also.  My husband loves it because he wants softer skin, but doesn't want to smell like flowers or fruit. 

Foxbrim Vitamin C Lotion comes in a nice sized bottle.  You only need a small amount and it has a handy pump top.  Since I have been using the lotion, I have noticed a definite improvement in my skin, especially my hands.  It is effective for all types of skin.  I have lost some elasticity in my skin over the years and Foxbrim Vitamin C Lotion brings all that back.  Everyone wants to look younger and Foxbrim Vitamin C Lotion will help you bring health back to your skin.
