Review: Henri Lou Jewelry




I recently had the chance to try out two pieces of jewelry from Henri Lou jewelry, a bracelet and a necklace. I was very impressed. Here is a little information about the company:

HENRI LOU is the “must have” new fashion brand in the jewelry and handbags accessories market.  Top retailers and the hottest celebrities can’t get enough of HENRI LOU! Julia Roberts and Teri Hatcher were recently spotted wearing the signature leather “Henri” bracelet.  Other celebrity fans include Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson, Miley Cyrus, and Kristen Bell. “Extra” TV recently featured HENRI LOU as a new hot Hollywood trend and been showcased in Woman’s Wear Daily numerous times.  
The now well-known line is designed by native Texan turned Los Angeles based Reagan Rowland. Rowland got inspiration for her first piece from a quaint saddle shop located in the ghost town of Calico, CA. Henri Lou is meticulously and proudly handcrafted in Los Angeles using fine quality materials of leather, suede, chains and stones. HL designs are boho chic, classy and time less. HENRI LOU’s jewelry and handbags are consistent with their same high quality design philosophy.

The necklace I was sent was not really something I would wear so I chose to give it to my mom. She loves it and said she has gotten so many compliments. She plans to purchase a few pieces for herself very soon. I was also given the chance to review a bracelet. The bracelet that I was sent is a genuine leather bracelet. It is simple yet you can definitely dress up with it. I like to wear it when I wear a casual outfit. The bracelet is very stylish and I really like it. Overall the jewelry was well made, and built to last. 

If you are looking for some pretty unique jewelry and  a great assortment of purses, make sure to visit Henry Lou for some wonderful choices.  You will love what you get and will go back for more I’m sure!  If you are looking for a special present for the man in your life, Henri Lou also has a selection on mens jewelry that he will love!

Review: Seabuck Wonders Natural Skin Care Program Kit



I received the SeabuckWonders Natural Skin Care Program Kit for review. If you have not heard of Sea Buckthorn in skincare you are really missing out! Dr. Oz refers to it as the “miracle berry”. SeabuckWonders products are non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, a Kosher Certified.

We have close to 20 years of experience producing the highest quality Sea Buckthorn products known in the world. SeabuckWonders maintains the highest of standards for ALL of our products by using only pure Himalayan, wild-grown, handpicked, USDA certified organic Sea Buckthorn berries. This high standard ensures our customers consistent quality whenever they reach for the SeabuckWonders name!

The kit includes:
  • Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion
  • Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream

I am a huge tanner in the winter so finding a body lotion to keep my skin hydrated has been very hard. I will admit when applying I was freaked out by the yellowness of the lotion, thankfully it blended in just fine.This lotion leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and very moisturizing. It has changed my skin dramatically!!

I will admit that I'm one who has a hard time finding a facial cream so I rarely use them. I decided to give this a product a try in hopes that it would work and not break my skin out. I'm really glad that I did give it a try. It is light weight and very moisturizing. I also like the fact that it absorbs very quickly into the skin so that I don't have to wait for a large amount of time to apply make up.

Review: Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel

I recently received a sample of Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel to try out. My hair is slightly wavy whenever I do not blow dry or straighten it. I was very anxious to try this product as there are days when I don't feel like doing much to it. Do you ever have days like this??


What it is:
A "smart" gel, formulated with heat-activated wheat protein that breathes in humidity, protects the hair shaft and prevents hair from expanding. Its water-soluble formula of amino acids and vitamin A nourish and hydrate hair, leaving it soft, manageable and full of shine without any buildup. Even the most unruly curls are rendered calm, cool, and collected with style that will last and last. Also works as great protection against blow-dryer heat when a straight style is preferred.

Ingredients:
Water, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Leaf Extract, Wheat Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/PVP Crosspolymer, Propylene Glycol, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Polyquaternium-28, Glycerin, PPG-26-Buteth-25, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PVP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, DMDM Hydantoin, Fragrance.

Directions:
Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. When hair is still damp, divide into 4-6 sections. Spread a nickel size dollop through each section, with your fingers separated like a rake. Rake section from scalp to ends, then holding the ends, shake hair back and forth to create curls. Repeat process for each section. Let hair dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser.
 
What do I think?
I absolutely love this product. It is so lightweight that I couldn't tell that I had product in my hair. It smells soooooooo good. My fiance even complemented me on how good it smelt in my hair! This doesn't leave your hair stiff, sticky, or hard. A little definitely goes a long way with this product. I had no frizz at all! I give this product a A+ and highly recommend you purchase it!!!!


Retail: $22.00 for 8.5oz and can be purchased  here

Review: BellyBling.net Playboy Bunny Navel Ring

I recently got the chance to review a navel ring from bellybling.net. I'm obsessed with playboy bunny, so I just had to get a Playboy Bunny navel ring. My navel isn't pierced at the moment but as soon as I hit my weight loss goal I plan to get my navel re-pierced. 


 

About the Company:

The Beginning:
BellyBling.net was founded in April of 2006 to provide a wide selection of dangling, standard, and hard to find belly button rings at very low cost. We feel there are very few high quality discount navel jewelry providers online. We also feel that most retail stores overcharge their customers (up to twice our prices) and provide a very limited selection of belly button rings. BellyBling.net was founded to fill the void between high price retailers and low quality internet sellers.

Now:
BellyBling.net is over six years old and we send out thousands of belly button rings every month. Our customers are located in nearly every state, Canada, Mexico, and around the world. We continually strive to provide our customers with the lowest costs and best service possible, because of that we qualified for an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau in Iowa along with our parent company, Clickstop, Inc.. Most orders are shipped out on the day after they are placed. Additionally, our central location in the US allows us to quickly ship to all other states.

Review: I love this navel ring. So cute. I was very pleased with packaging  and it didn't take me long to receive. BellyBling.net offers not only navel rings but barbell jewelry, captive bead rings, ear gauges and tapers, eyebrow rings, lip rings, Monroe rings, nipple rings, tongue rings, toe rings, and more. They have jewelry in acrylic, gold, 14kt gold, 24 kt gold, sterling silver, surgical steel, etc. They have so many cute styles that you are sure to find more than one you will adore. I highly recommend them if you are looking for cute and affordable body jewelry.

Pumpkin carving for big kids



Carving pumpkins is a superb tradition that stays with us for life, while kids
love designing their own spooky or silly pumpkin faces at Halloween. With a
little creativity, your pumpkin carving can go from average to enviable. Once
you’ve sorted out their costumes (it’s worth noting that 
Woolworths has great kids Halloween costumes for you to check out), it’s time to get busy with the
overgrown squash. The following three pumpkin design ideas are all made
from household items and cheap Halloween-themed props that are readily
available throughout October.

Pond-Dwelling Pumpkin

You’ll need either a fairly small pumpkin or a particularly large sandwich
bag to create a Pond-Dwelling Pumpkin. First off, carve your pumpkin face
and pop it into a see-through plastic bag. Now, this is the tricky part: whilst
you hold the bag in place, get one of the kids to fill it with cold water. Add a
couple of drops of diluted green food colouring to create a more pond-like
appearance, before tying the bag in a tight knot at the top of the pumpkin’s
stalk. How do you illuminate an underwater pumpkin? Well, you use a glow
stick, of course. They provide a cheap and flame-free way to light up jack o’
lanterns, and a green stick will cast an eerie underwater glow that will last for
hours.

Carrie Pumpkin

One for older kids to enjoy: Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright‘s
favourite horror movie is ’70s classic Carrie, based on the novel by king of
horror, Stephen King. A Carrie Pumpkin is easy (as pumpkin pie…) to make.
Carve a sad-faced pumpkin, top with a tiara and drizzle fake blood from the
crown of the pumpkin’s head. Due to the messy fake blood, Carrie Pumpkins
should be kept on a plate or tray and out of the way of any hungry pets!

Poorly Pumpkin

What do you do with your pumpkin’s innards? Washing, drying and roasting
the seeds makes a great party snack, but it’s a slow and messy process to
extract them from the pulpy fibres. Instead, make the kids giggle by creating a
Poorly Pumpkin. Your pumpkin needs to sit a little higher than usual, so prop
it up on a stack of coasters. Carve a wide mouth and squinting eyes, and trail
the discarded innards from the mouth to make a poorly, puking pumpkin!

I had the pleasure of trying out two products. I got to try out:
 
 
 

   Review: I love deep conditioners and I'm always willing to try a new one. I was very pleased with this conditioner.  It has a lot of amazing ingredients:
  • Lime and Ginger Essential Oils work in concert to restore luster and sheen.
  • Mushroom Complex of Nameko, Reishi, Shiitake and Cordyceps deeply repairs for fuller, stronger hair.
  • Gotu Kola stimulates blood circulation, revitalizing hair follicles to improve hair growth and health.

 I noticed a HUGE difference in my hair after one use!! I love that it is very affordable. $9.99 for 4 ounces is definitely worthy every cent!! The only negative that I can honestly say about this product is that when it got close to being empty it was very hard to get the last few drops out. 



Review:  I must admit that I'm not much on hair creams...but when I got the opportunity to try this product out I took it. I was honestly very impressed with it. My hair at times can get very unmanageable but  I must say this cream helped with that. My hair was left sleek and definitely more manageable. It also has a ton of key ingredients that are great for your hair

  • Nourishing Complex of Papaya, Evening Primrose, Alfalfa, and Pomegranate nourish and revitalize hair.
  • Hibiscus, rich in Alpha Hydroxy and Amino Acids, rehydrates keratin fibers adding luster and smoothness.
  • Naturally nourishing Organic Jojoba, Organic Coconut and Olive Oils deeply hydrate hair while adding shine and softness.
  • Panthenol aids in moisture retention, increasing elasticity and thickening hair.
  • Quinoa Protein, high in Amino Acids, fortifies, conditions and repairs hair.
  • Aloe Vera improves scalp health with powerful antioxidants.
  • Vegetable Glycerin softens hair by locking moisture into the hair shaft.
  • Vitamin E improves scalp and hair health with powerful antioxidants.
  • Organic Calendula, Chamomile and White Tea botanicals harmonize and replenish. 
This hair cream is fabulous and at $8.99 for  6oz it will last you a long time. If you are looking for Organic Haircare products at an affordable price, I highly suggest you check out EO Haircare products. You will be glad you did. :)

Review: Pedi-Sox

I recently had the chance to try out a very unique product. I like to give myself pedicures. Most are surprised to know that I have never had a pedicure in a salon. I don't like the idea of other people touching my feet?? Am I the only one??

Pedi Sox are one of a kind toe-less sox will turn an ordinary pedicure into an extraordinary experience. With Pedi Sox feet will stay clean and comfy and your skin will stay softer and smoother.

Products I received:




About the Company:

I would like to introduce you to a brand new, one of a kind product that is full of "holes", literally - and that is what makes it so unique!

For years, I have personally enjoyed the soothing qualities of pedicures, but felt there should be away to create a pleasant transition of my feet back into the 'real world' and knew there had to be a simple and practical solution to resolve this abrupt transition. I wanted to create a way to extend the pleasure of the pedicure experience and keep my feet warm, comfy and clean while allowing my nail polish to dry smudge fee. 'Exploring' prototypes to my friends, I found a great response and demand - thus confirming my need for a 'holy' sock! To my surprise, I suddenly found myself in business when orders started rolling in simply by sharing my sock story with my friends and pedicurist.

I eventually persuaded an extremely quality-conscious sock manufacturer to cut 'holes' in their reputation to create Pedi-Sox®. A quality sock designed and manufactured strictly for pedicures which can be used over and over! Pedi-Sox® come in an assortment of styles and fashionable colors while being priced affordably. Now those who enjoy pedicures can keep their feet comfy and clean, allow moisturizers to absorb better and protect their nail polish - while extending the pleasure of the pedicure experience.

I currently have 5 sock styles: The Original Pedi-Sox®, Professional Pedi-Sox®, California Weight Pedi-Sox ®, SPA Pedi-Sox® and my newest...Ultra Pedi-Sox™.

Have you tried an Overnight Foot Softening Treatment ?  Fabulous ! I hope you are as excited about Pedi-Sox® as I am and look forward to hearing from you soon.
"Pamper your Feet"™! and Thank you for your interest!

Review: I was very excited to try out these sox and the foot cream. I will be honest and say I definitely neglect my feet. I try to take time out for myself but being a very busy stay at home mom and planning a wedding doesn't leave much time for myself.  I have vowed that at least twice a month I will give my feet some attention. I really love the sox and how soft they were. My favorite were definitely the leopard ones since I loveee animal print. The foot cream is amazing and I definitely noticed a huge difference in one use. I like to apply the cream once I get out of the shower then I put my pedi-sox on. I wake up to very soft and smooth feet. I would highly recommend Pedi-Sox and there products. They are very affordable and you will not be disappointed!! (Pedi-Sox retail for $7 and up)

   Review: Wow!! What can I say about this shampoo?? It's wonderful. I really noticed a big difference in my hair. It wasn't as dry as it usually is and was very soft and manageable. I definitely noticed less frizzy hair!

Review:  This conditioner is amazing!! I love that it's in a tube which makes it easier to get every last drop without wasting it! I loved to apply the conditioner after shampooing and letting it sit for at least 10 minutes. It made my hair so soft and manageable. I noticed a huge difference in the softness of my hair and health of my hair.

Review: This serum is amazing!! A little definitely goes a long way. This bottle will last me forever. I applied this after shampooing and conditioning. I then blow dried my hair and wow!! My hair was extra soft, shiny, less frizzy, and full of body. I would highly recommend this product.

Review: The shirt didn't honestly suit me but I decided I would sleep in it. It's very soft and comfy. The shirts are made very well.

The vast majority of the shirts are Gildan, but at times we may also use a comparable item from Fruit of The Loom, Hanes, Anvil, Bella or Jerzees if stock from the vendor run low."
They have a huge selection of t-shirts. From funny t-shirts, political, to movie references this site has it all. You can choose what style shirt you want  and your color. They even have bottle cap opener shirts! The shirts are very affordable at $14.99 and great quality. They also have a special sale going on right now, buy 3 get 3 free!!

Review: MeUndies

I love going shopping for lingerie/panties. I have drawers and drawers full. Some still have the tags on them. I was very excited to get the opportunity to try out a pair of panties from MeUndies. They offer monthly a monthly subscription like the Birchbox but instead it's undies.

Here are the boyshorts I was sent for review:





About the Company:

 MeUndies makes top quality basics and sells them for less than other top quality brands  

How do we do it?
Top quality designer underwear sells for 10 times what it cost to make. By eliminating brick and mortar stores, retail middlemen and brand licensing fees we can pass the savings to our customers and deliver top quality underwear right to their door.

Why do we do it?
Our goal is to create a company that delivers comfort, convenience and affordability. We believe that there should be an easier, less expensive way to buy essential basic apparel.

We also think that there isn’t a company out there that does it all well. Right now, the best t-shirts, socks and underwear are made by three different brands. We have started by making the most comfortable underwear and strive to be the first full service basic apparel company that makes each product the best on the market. 


Review:  All of the MeUndies brand underwear are made in L.A. with 100% cotton lining, the highest quality lace, and are designed to not only look sexy, but also FEEL sexy- and amazing! I must admit I didn't think any different of this brand from another brand. Would they really be comfortable? YES, they are very comfortable. I forgot I was even wearing them!

Wanna know something else really cool?? If you live in LA you can go to a vending machine to purchase these undies!!

Review: Extreme Tan and Smoothies Spray Tan Can Anti-aging bronzing mist


(Picture credit)

I will admit it, if you don't know by now that I'm a tanning addict. I love being bronze all year long. I have a few self tanners that I love but I'm always willing to experiment with new ones!

For review today I have Extreme Tan and Smoothies Spray Tan Can Anti-aging bronzing mist....

What it says on the product: 
Innovative Technology has now brought the ability to have an airbrushed tan into the privacy of your own home. Spray Tan Can will deliver expert level results that would make your airbrush professional envious.

This anti-aging bronzing mist gives you an instant streak free tan whether used for touch ups or full body tans. 

Our uniquely delivery system produces skin that is more than just deeply tan. Your skin will be moisturized with anti-aging ingredients that give our skin a smooth radiant look and feel. 

Directions: 
Shake can well before applying. Hold can appropriately 10 to 14 inches from your body and spray in smooth even movements. When spraying your face, close your eyes and hold your breath. For best results, exfoliate prior to spray tanning. Apply lightly around the face, feet, and ankles. If solution gets on the palms of your hands or the bottom of your feet, wash off immediately with soap and water. For best results, use blow dryer or fan to quick dry after your spray tan session and wear loose fitting clothes. To achieve the maximum effect, allow 6 hours before bathing to extend the life of your sunless tan. Use our daily max tan extender as tan begins to fade. Reapply as needed. If irradiation occurs, discontinue use.

Before:

After 2 hours!!
 

What do I think? I love this self tanner. I love that it delivered an instant tan and it was very moisturizing!!

ADVANTAGES: I really loved that with this self tanner all you had to do was spray, no blending. I must say I was quite worried at first but was amazed later.  The color result was a gorgeous golden bronze tan. It looked very natural and even.No ORANGE color.  The spray can makes it very easy for application, just spray and let dry. I love that the solution dried in less than two minutes. The smell of this self tanner is amazing, smells like coconuts.  As with most self tanners, I was worried about the self  tan odor after applying. I'm very happy to see that their was no smelly odor. (Woo!! Thank goodness) I also received a Self Tanning Lotion sample that I use in combo with this and I love it just as much!!

DISADVANTAGES: NONE!! I love it!!.

Would I buy this again? Yes, I would definitely repurchase. It's a great self tanner and I would highly recommend it.

 

Retail: $16.95 for 7 fl oz and can be purchased here

Check out my online Jamberry Party!!


Just a few of the designs Jamberry offers:




 
 

  
About Jamberry:

 Jamberry Nails started with three sisters.

We created Jamberry Nails to provide a simple way to brighten your day. We constantly get letters and feedback from customers letting us know how much they love the product and how many compliments they get day after day. We know you'll love the product too and feel great wearing your Nail Shields.


You'll also love Jamberry Nails because of how easily
they can be applied and how many different looks you can achieve by mixing and matching. Our Nail Shields will give you that high-end salon look in the convenience of your own home.


How to apply:

Jamberry Nail Shields are designed to be easily applied in a salon or at home.

Step 1: Clean nails with nail polish remover or alcohol. (Clean, oil free nails are one of the most important steps of the application)


Step 2: Cut and file nails to desired length and shape.

Step 3: Buff top of the nail and push back cuticle.

Step 4: Match nail (finger or toe) to the nail shield that best fits.

Step 5: Peel off nail shield and warm with a blow-dryer 10-15 seconds or until soft and flexible.

Step 6: When warm, press the shield onto the nail. Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the shield to the nail. Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the shield around the cuticle.

Step 7: Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion to remove excess.

Step 8: Apply heat and pressure to the shield again until it is sealed to the nail. (Repeating this step several times helps create a tight seal to the nail surface and increases wear time)

Optional Step 9: For active users you can add a small amount of nail glue to the free edge to better seal the nail shield.

How to Remove:

Use hair dryer to heat for 15 seconds and slowly peel from the corner of your nail
