Review: Betterthanpants.com

I was very excited to test out two shirts from betterthanpants.com. I chose Brunettes do it better for myself and a Lucky four leaf clover shirt for my boyfriend since he is Irish. 

Here are the shirts I received:

 
About the company:
Better Than Pants was created because we were surfing the web one day and realized that most t-shirt companies sold lame, low quality t-shirts and we knew we could do better. Every one of our shirts are printed on high quality cotton and is designed by either us or our loyal viewers! We want to always have the very best designs so if you think you’ve got a good idea, let us know. If we use your idea, we’ll pay you cash. It’s probably the easiest money you’ll ever make.

What makes us different than the other funny t-shirt sites? There’s nothing worse than finding a t-shirt that you really like but hating the color or the type of shirt it comes in. That’s why on every one of our designs you can choose from 11 different styles, 11 different colors, and in sizes up to 5XL. Sure that makes more work for us since we have to custom print every shirt ordered, but it’s worth it because our customers get their shirts exactly how they want them.

If you have any questions or comments please email us. Also, if you send us a picture of you or one of your friends in our shirts and we post it on the site, we’ll send you $50. Regardless, when you're looking for funny shirts or offensive tees you can always trust the BetterThanPants brand. 
 
Review:  My fiance and I really like our shirts. The designs are available in short sleeve, long sleeve, hoodie style, spaghetti strap, and in tank style. You can find sizing for both women and women and it comes in white along with 4 other different colors. I chose white for myself and blue for my fiance. The shirts are 100% preshrunk cotton and are very soft. My fiance and I have washed and worn our shirts a few times and are very pleased with the high quality. No shrinkage at all!! I would DEFINITELY recommend this company if you are looking for high quality, affordable clothing. You will not be disappointed!! A+

Review: Konvine Leopard Roll-ups with Heart Shoes

I love shoes!! What girl doesn't right?? I have been wearing a pair of flats I received recently and love them. I love my heels but being a mom I stay busy and my feet get tired. These flats have definitely came in very handy. Not only are they very comfortable but also very trendy. Mommy's have to stay in style too right?? Konvine gave me the opportunity to review there gorgeous rollable and foldable flats. Yes, they are foldable and can fit in your purse!! What's not to love??


Konvine carries a beautiful variety of different roll-up & foldable shoes that also include ballerina style roll-ups, flip flop style rollups, and even fuzzy slipper roll-ups!  Prices range $10.00 - $40.00, you can't beat that!! They come in a generous range of sizes:
Small - 6-7
Medium - 8-9
Large - 10-11
X-Large - 12-13 



Review: I chose to review the  chose to review their new style Leopard Roll-ups with Heart in a size medium. I honestly didn't know what to expect. I was thinking they would probably be cheaply made considering that they are foldable. My shoes arrived in a really cute black box. The packaging was very pretty and elegant.

When I opened it, the shoes were rolled up with a satin ribbon and a simple, black pouch was included (to put your shoes in when on the go). They are so comfortable and flexible!
 The bottoms are very durable and thick. I know these flats will last me for a very long time. They are non-slip which is great for wearing indoors or outdoors. These shoes will look great paired with anything from shorts, dresses, or jeans. I love how they can easily fit in my purse and when I'm out if I get tired of wearing my heels I can just slip these on.

Review: Unite Haircare

I recently had the chance to try out three hair products from Unite. I have tried the products out for a few weeks and I'm very excited to give my reviews. 


About the company:

UNITE is a premium, boutique line of 32 professional haircare products. Each has undergone extensive testing and research, allowing UNITE to experience extraordinary performance feedback from the finest salon professionals.


Moisturizing Shampoo
This shampoo is wonderful. I loved how it was very moisturizing. Most shampoos that say moisturizing really aren't. This one is definitely one of those that is. It moisturized my hair and made it so soft and shiny. One of the other great things I loved about it, was that it didn't weigh my hair down. It has key ingredients of glycereth, morgina seed extract and botanisil. Retails for $27.50 for 10 oz.


Moisturizing Repair Treatment
I used this treatment after using the moisturizing shampoo. It's great. It left my dry hair very soft, shiny, and moisturized. My only complaint was that I wished the tube was BIGGER!! Retails for $29.94 for 4 fl oz.


 
U Luxury Argan Oil

I was so excited to be able to try out this argan oil. Argan Oil is becoming very popular among haircare companies. I have only had the chance  to try out one other argan oil. Let me tell you, this one is so much better!! Luxury definitely fits for this argan oil. I love that argan oil can be used for so many things. The key features of argan oil are: reduces blow drying time, extends color life, reconstructs the cuticle, nourishes and revitalizes, natural uv and thermal protector, cannot be overused, and can be used on all hair types. I love that this oil will last me a long time because a little goes a long way. I would highly recommend it.Retails for $47.95 for 3.3 fl oz.

My Experience:

I decided recently it was time to get back to a normal exercise routine. What better way to get back in gear than with some new activewear??  My traditional workout gear has always been sweat pants and a tee shirt. I decided it was finally time for a change!! I was very excited to try out Vibrant Fitwear. They have a ton of cute and trendy patterns to chose from. The customer service is fantastic. I found the perfect outfit and was very impressed!! I must say I was quite scared when I opened my package and saw how small the pants looked. I didn't think they were gonna fit me but was so happy to see they did. I got to try out the Margarita Pant Rollover and Margarita Activewear Cross-Back Tank.They sell a variety of cute styles and colors including capris, shorts, and jackets. The pants definitely shape your butt and thighs as stated. My boyfriend commented out how sexy the outfit looked on me. Especially my booty. LOL!! I loved that the shirt and pants are wrinkle free.

Flawless is applied with a professional mitt (INCLUDED) in effortless gliding strokes for a perfectly even tan.

 After:



Pros:

  • Comes with a mitt and gloves
  • Doesn't stain your clothes
  • Doesn't streak
  • Doesn't turn you orange
  • Gives a nice golden, natural tan
  • Paraben free

Cons:
  • NONE!! I love it!!
 
Review: I have heard so many great things about Fake Bake self tanners but never tried them. I was very excited to get the chance to try out this self tanner. I have heard so many great things about it. It's very easy to use If you haven't tried a self tanner before, you will not have any problems. I love that the kit comes with gloves and a mitt. The mitt comes in very handy with blending in the self tanner. I really loved the scent of this self tanner. Most have a weird smell and the next day you smell ever worse. This self tanner isn't like that at all. I noticed instant results and liked that I was able to still go out in public and no one knew I had self tanner on. I give this self tanner an A+ and it will go on the top of my self tanners list. I will definitely purchase more in the future once I'm out.
