Selfie Stick

Selfie sticks are all the rage right now. In looking for a birthday present this one in particular caught my eye! I was not disappointed! You can tell that this item is well made and not cheaply done. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to make it long and clamp on the phone. But that is most likely user error as I've never had a selfie stick before. I don't have another stick to compare this statement to but the company states that all you have to do is plug in the audio port on the device, press the easy to reach button on the handle and viola you have your perfect shot! I like that I can fold it up and throw it in a bag or purse for whatever activity I want to use the selfie stick for. There is also a lifetime guarantee offered. If for some reason you don't like this item within 60 days you will get your money back and a replacement warranty for the lifetime of your item. You can find the item here Selfie Stick

Iphone Leather Case

I have been eyeing a case like this for some time. I like the idea that you can treat the case as a wallet. There are a couple openings that you can put cards in. You can also close the case and it feels like the clasp is magnetic.It says it is good for a Iphone 6+. That seems to be true. But if your wanting to try to put this case over a otterbox it won't work. I also liked that you can fold it and prop the phone for you so you can be hands free if your wanting to watch a video or something of that like.

Lavender Oil

I love the smell of lavender. I didn't realize how much until I diffused it. It made me want to stay in my room and go no where! I really like this company and their products. I have not been disappointed at all with any of the oils I have gotten from them. One thing that is known about this oil is that it soothes the mind and body. I am looking forward to putting some drops in the next time I take a bath. It is said you can apply this topically. I'd use a carrier oil with it just to be safe. If you are looking for what else you can mix with it here are some suggestions-
rose
peppermint
geranium
clay sage
bergamet patchouli
and ginger
You will get your money's worth as it comes in a 4oz bottle and glass dropper. Here is where you can get it.Lavender Oil

Yummy Coffee!

My husband loves coffee. He especially loves coffee that he grinds himself. When the package arrived I could smell the freshness right away. I also loved that this coffee is organic and fair trade. In asking my husband what he thought he said it was good and had a good dark taste. It was full flavored and not acidity.There was no bitterness in drinking the coffee that can happen in dark roast coffee. He would know as he is a black coffee drinker so he appreciates a good cup of joe. Coffee Crazy could easily compete with other name brand companies out there. You can get your own coffee here. Coffee Crazy

Radha Peppermint Oil

This peppermint oil does not have a overbearing scent. It is considered the #1 new release in aromatherapy oils. That is how I used this one. I have only tried it out in my diffuser. It comes in a 4 oz blue bottle and glass dropper. The bottle is unique to me as I have never seen oil in a blue bottle until now. I have heard that peppermint oil is good for getting rid of spiders and ants. This will be good to know. With the drought here in California ants have been a nuisance for my home. I haven't tried it out yet but looking forward to seeing if it works.

Amber Teething Necklace

I like how upfront the company is about this necklace. They make it clear that if you don't want your baby to wear the necklace around their neck they can wear it on their ankle. The point is you want the amber to be in contact with your babies skin to bring relief when teething. There is also a safety feature where the clasp is. There is a plastic screw type there. It's obvious where you are suppose to clasp and unclasp the necklace. This means you can slide the beads off of the clasp to open or close it. To us adults the necklace looks short but for a baby it's likely the perfect size as it should hang right under the baby's chin. I tested the necklace to see how sturdy it is as babies like to yank things. That will not be a problem with this. Even in my yanking the necklace stayed intact. This would make a great baby shower gift! I have read that the necklace reduces the drooling babies do in half. I also like that it comes with a muslin bag so you have a place to store the necklace when not in use. In the paperwork you get with this teething necklace it states do not let the baby sleep with it and supervise the baby when he or she is wearing it. I wish they had something like this when my kids were young. I like that this is something natural and holistic. Regardless, I think this is something that mother's with babies would enjoy receiving. If this is something you would like to get it can be found on Amazon. Disclaimer: I received this product at a discount for my honest and unbiased review.

Milk Thistle

This is my first time taking milk thistle. I have heard this is good for your liver-hence my main reason for trying this out. When I opened up the bottle and saw the coloring I thought it was interesting because it was a tan powder. The capsules are vegetarian for any that may be concerned about those kind of things. So far I have had no negative results in taking a supplement that is new to me. I have read that taking this may help decrease the chance of heart disease. I need all the help I can get! I'm not the best eater so I'm thankful there are such supplements as this to take care of any gaps I may not be filling in my diet. If you are interested in getting this you can do so at Amazon.

Omega 3 Fish Oil

I know people have a hard time taking fish oil because of the size and after taste. Still have to deal with the size but I personally did not experience the weird after taste. I just noticed that this bottle advertises as burp free. That is true in my case. There is also a lemon taste to the pills which likely makes the product easier to swallow.There are many good reasons to start taking fish oil in general. Some positive things in taking fish oil is the following 1. Reduces inflammation and joint pain 2. Can improve your skin, mood and eye function I've only been taking this for a week or so. The only thing I can truly attest to is no funny after taste. I am looking forward to seeing what this supplement will do for me in general. If this is something you'd like to try you can find it on Amazon. Disclaimer: I received this product at a reduced price for my honest and unbiased review.

Yummy Lemon Oil!

The first time I diffused this oil it made me think of lemonheads (the candy). And I wanted some right at that moment! I haven't used this on my skin . It's recommended that if you do to use a carrier oil with it. I do plan on using this as a cleaning product. I want my house to smell clean but I don't want to use all these chemicals to achieve this result. I read that this oil is also good to use if you like making your own hand soap. And it can be used in your laundry to freshen up your load. I am looking forward to seeing what else I can do with this oil. If you are interested in this product you can find it on Amazon.

Peppermint Oil

I love the smell of this oil. It reminds me of chewing gum for one. So of course one of my favorite things to do with this oil is to diffuse it. In fact, I put the diffuser in my son's room with this oil as he was complaining of a cough and a congested nose. This cleared him right up! One day when I was feeling nauseous and head achy I diffused this and felt better after a while. There are many uses for this oil. I also really like this brand and have not been disappointed in my purchases. If this item interests you it can be found on Amazon.

Tea Tree Oil Majestic Pure

I have been dipping my toe in the essential oil world. No surprise that I would want to try Tea Tree Oil. I have read that this oil in particular by this brand is not organic certified and the process of extracting the oil from the tea tree leaves is by steam. With that said I have only diffused this oil and it reminds me of pine sol. I had to contact the seller not about the oil per say but the dropper it was packed with was broken. He mailed me a new bottle and dropper as a result which came fine. There's been a debate about whether or not this is really true tea oil but for me it is suiting my needs at this time. If this is a item that interests you, it can be found on Amazon. Disclaimer: I received this product at a discounted price for my honest and unbiased review.

Tea Tree Sun Essential Oils

Tea Tree Oil has many health benefits. The first time I really heard of it was when I was looking for shampoo for my son. With this particular brand I decided to diffuse it. The scent reminded me of pine sol. But it didn't give me a headache as pine sol tends to do. Some other uses for this oil is that you can use it in your laundry that can't be bleached or for dusting as long as you put it on a rag first. As I stated earlier there are health benefits to this oil. I know it controls dandruff and moisturizes your scalp as a result. If you are interested in getting this it can be found on Amazon.

Monarcoa Frankincense Oil

I liked using this oil. It reminds me of the bible times and when the wise men went to go see baby Jesus. To me that shows how well this oil has done in particular if this was talked about back then. One of my friends informed me she uses this on her face. So I will do that to as I've only diffused it. I did notice it loses it's scent when a fan and a portable AC is in the same room with it. But it didn't deter me from appreciating it. I also liked that the dropper is not noticeable but usable when you want to put it on your skin or diffuser. I have heard you can use this on cuts and scrapes. That's always good to know because I do that to myself at times. I think it's good to know that this oil has many uses. If you would like to have one for yourself and try it out it can be found on Amazon. Disclaimer: I received this product at a discount for my honest review.

Mini Bluetooth Speaker

I had to get this speaker away from my daughter in order to review it. When it first arrived at my home my nephew and daughter snagged it. We were all impressed with the sound quality. It had been played on a Imac, Iphone 5 and 6+ It comes in a box but inside the box the speaker can be found in a black cloth bag. It also comes with a aux cable and that is the way you charge the speaker. But I read that the battery holds the charge for 9 hours so you won't have to charge often unless you play the speaker 9 hours straight. Because of it's size you should have no issue putting it in your pocket to carry or a bag. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to shut it off as I didn't remember seeing it in the instructions. I had to laugh when it was still playing when I had put it back in the black bag. So if your looking for a portable speaker that you could take with you I would definitionly look into getting this. You can find this item at Amazon.

Vitamin C Cleanser

I have never used a Vitamin C Cleanser before. This was my first experience with this cleanser and company. I was not disappointed. It made my face feel cleaner and made my skin look better. When you squeeze out the product it is in a clear gel and it lathers nicely. It also washes off without a issue. I used my hands to wash my face making sure to get my hands wet first before applying the product. Otherwise you won't get the lather. I dried my face off with a towel and no residue was left behind. I would buy again from Oz Naturals and look forward to trying more of their products. You can find this product at Amazon. Disclaimer: I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

Xino Fire Cube

I bought this for my son to try out. He was stumped but had fun trying to solve it. He told me he was going to ask his bff to help him out. I had to ask him if the cube was suppose to move as easily as it did. He assured me it was a good thing for a cube to do that. I like this cube because it's not in the traditional colors you would have seen in the original Rubki's cube. Another good thing about this cube is it's stickerles so you won't have to worry about stickers coming up or cheating and taking the stickers off cause your frustrated and just want to solve the cube! If this cube is of interest to you, you can find it on Amazon. Disclaimer: I got this product for a discount in exchange for a honest review.

Majestic Pure Frankincense Oil

I tried this oil in my diffuser the other day. I remember enjoying the scent that emitted from it. It was relaxing to smell the scent. In my research it says to inhale frankincense after lunch for spiritual refocus. And if you rub the oil on the bottom of your feet it helps alleviate nervous energy.I put oil on the bottom of my feet. But I can't say if it alleviated nervous energy or not.I also like what the company had to say. If you are not satisfied with the product they will refund your money. But I think you will really like the product. If you are interested in getting this you can find this on Amazon. Disclaimer: I got this product for a discount for my honest review.

Pure Ylang Ylang By Majestic Pure

When I received this bottle I was impressed with the size. It comes in a 4 oz bottle. I heard that typical oil comes in 10 ml. I also liked that it comes with it's own dropper. It makes it convenient to use right away. I put a few drops of this in my diffuser diluted with water. The flowery smell came through. It wasn't overbearing and it was pleasant to smell. I haven't tried to use it in a different way then to diffuse it. I am looking forward to using this oil to its true potential. I have read that you can use this for skin care and hair growth. Because I tend to have dry skin I am going to try it on my face next. If you are interested in this product you can find it at Amazon.

Pure Turmeric Circumin Extract

I have a friend who has told me about the health benefits of having turmeric in your diet. Since I didn't want to drink it and I was afraid I would forget to mix it in food taking it in a pill form worked for me. One of the things that turmeric is known for is helping with inflammation. I believe that this product helps with that. I have had a lot of dental work done so my mouth aches at times. This has helped my pain that I get from my mouth. I've only been taking this for a week or so. I am sure there will be other good results as time progresses. If you like taking supplements and looking for a way to boost your health I'd recommend giving this brand a try. You can find this product on Amazon.

Majestic Pure Rosehip Oil

I still need to play with this more. I have heard a lot of good things about this oil. For example, it helps with your nails and skin. But it can take up to 3 months to see results. A couple days ago I decided to forgo my usual lotion after I washed my face in exchange for this oil. I put about 3 drops in my hand and rubbed it on my face. I loved the instant result. My face tends to feel dry at times and that was not a issue. I am excited to see what else this oil will do. They say it can help with stretch marks so I'm going to put oil on mine. The oil is not clear and it comes in a amber color. As far as I can tell you can't diffuse this. Its most likely best for your skin. I would recommend trying this out if your looking for a oil to use with your skin. You can find this oil on Amazon. Disclaimer: I received this product at a discount for my honest review.

ZAQ Jellyfish Litemist Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser

I have never owned a diffuser before. I have been wanting to try one out as well as oils. This diffuser did not disappoint! I love how the lights change different colors and that it will mist for you and you can see it. I like that there is a light and mist button near the bottom of the product and in front. It is user friendly and not hard to miss. You don't have to worry about it running all night as it shuts off in about four hours. One other thing that is helpful is that it comes with its own measuring cup. So you don't have to worry about how much water your putting in the diffuser. They already do the work for you. My husband was so impressed with it he asked me to run it before he went to bed the other night. In fact, it has become a nightly routine for him and he falls asleep to it. Tonight he is sleeping with Peppermint Oil. If you want to try a sound quality product I'd highly recommend this. You can find this on Amazon.

Gio Sport Running Belt

I love going to the gym and this running belt will be a lifesaver! In the past I have had to lug my purse with me to keep my keys and phone with me or leave it in the car (the purse) and carry my items in my hands. With this running belt it will solve that problem for me. I must say from what I can tell the belt will fit up to a x large. But most likely nothing bigger then that. You can move the straps to your liking. So you can make the belt as tight or as loose as you like. You also cannot fit a IPhone 6+ in the zipper part. But smaller phones should not be an issue. If you are looking for something that will keep your hands free while you run outside or in the gym I would say that this item is worth looking into and investing in. I tried to share a link with you but I can't seem t share it. Not sure if its user error or blogger error. But do a search on Amazon for Gio Sport Running Belt and you should be able to find it.

Vitamin K2

I am a fan of taking supplements. In a perfect world I would get all I needed in my food source. Taking supplements gives me the assurance I am doing the best I can for my health. I am not a doctor and I know not everyone believes supplements but this is my opinion. So it should be no surprise that I decided to pick this up. The thing that caught my attention the most is that this vitamin comes in a clear capsule and the powder moves in it. This confirms to me that the vitamin is highly pure and mostly bio available as it says on the back of the bottle. I liked that because it gave me the impression it would be fast working once I took it. This vitamin is suppose to help with calcium and gives you healthy bones and heart. It also helps you with your muscles. There was no strange aftertaste and it was easy to swallow. I was excited to find this as I couldn't find it in a traditional store setting. If you would like to have your own bottle here's the link. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S1L7CI8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00 * I recieved this item at a discount in exchange for a honest review.*
