Brightest & Best Headlamp Flashlight with Red LED Light by Vitchelo

I received the Brightest and Best Headlamp Flashlight with Red LED light by Vitchelo at a discount in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. 
I never thought that I would use this product or fall in love with it. I had no idea as to what I would use it for. Okay, I hike, extensively so I thought there is that. I have never owned a headlamp at all so this product i thought would be a challenge for me. Not so, it has easy to follow instructions for set up. I didn't need those instructions, just popped the batteries in and it was ready. I did however read the inserts in the package in order to learn more about the product. 
This product has a red light as well as a white light that allows you to see up to 110 meters. It also has a flood (wide) or spot light that can be dimmed if you need it to be. There is also a boost mode that can boost your lighting with just a touch. 
You can use regular batteries or rechargeable batteries. I am opting for rechargeable batteries as we just can not keep batteries in our home. There is a lockout feature to prevent your battery from draining accidentally and it is waterproof IPX6.
The adjustable strap makes it easy to fit even my grandson and it is very comfortable. You also have a tilting option so if your reading a book you can get the best possible positioning. 
I have been reading at night and I use this headlamp. No more lamps for me. I also used it Friday evening when I was checking the oil in my car. It was dusk and hard to see so I got my headlamp out. It is so much easier using this because it is hands free. I am now looking forward to my first night hike of the season. Well, I will probably try it this coming month if it warms up. We are avid hikers and campers. So it will come in handy. I would also love to use this while caving. It would be perfect for that. But my baby is only 5 so it may be a few years before we can do that again. 
This product exceeded my expectations and I am glad I have gotten the chance to try it. We will be investing in at least 2 more before doing any night hikes.

For the last few months I have started trying products like this one to help prevent wrinkles from forming as well as to hydrate my face due to extreme winter weather. I don't have wrinkles yet and I want to keep it that way. Maybe a fine line or two.
InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum comes with an eye dropper for easy application. The major ingredients are hyaluronic acid, green tea, vitamin c, and jojoba oil. These four ingredients are what I look for in this type of product because they are effective. The serum is somewhat thick and clear. It is non-greasy and goes on very smoothly. A few seconds after application you can feel your skin tightening and I noticed after a few weeks of use my face looks a lot more hydrated. Sometimes I get dark circles under my eyes and since i started this product they are a lot less noticeable.
So, i really like this product due to its base ingredients that have been proven to work. Also the non-greasy formula and thick serum makes it easy to apply. I received this product for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Revtronic F30B Ultra Powerful 800 Lumens Cree LED Flashlight

I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review. This is the first flashlight I have ever owned that did not come from a cheap store. This product is powerful, durable, has a long beam distance, five modes and it is waterproof.

I am an avid hiker and intend on using this product on the trail. I am sure I will use it elsewhere as well. The light is super bright and allows you to see for long distances. That is very important when you are on the trail at night.
It is made of aluminum alloy so it is durable as well as rust proof.
It has five modes of which to choose.
It is waterproof which is very important anywhere.
I love the fact that this product is small enough to place anywhere. Its compact size will make it easier to carry. However, I wish I had someway to attach it to my belt loops.
I actually love this product and would recommend this for anyone.

I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from +Influenster 

This is my first Voxbox from Influenster and I loved it. There were so many items in which to test and review. I love how this company works and that respond in a timely manner if I have a problem or do not understand something. 

The first item I received was Cetaphil Moisturizing cream. I am very bad about sitting on my ankles while at my desk so my ankles get very dry. After using Cetaphil Moisturizing cream for two days they are getting so much better. I had never tried this product so I am very happy with it and the opportunity to try it. #Cheerphil,#contest #sponsered +Cetaphil US 

The second item was Hallmarks itty bitty's. We received Olaf and my grandson fell in love with him. This actually arrived after Christmas but that was okay. I gave it to him and then we went to the Hallmark Gold Crown store at the mall to check out other options. We have decided to buy the Peanuts Characters. Those are our favorites.@Hallmark #ittybittys  #contest 

The third item was Pure Ice nail polish. I got the color Home run and it suited me just fine. I love the spring colors. It did not fade or chip for a week and it is only 1.97 at Walmart. #Pureice  #contest 

The fourth item was Kiss lashes. I have never in my life applied or worn false lashes. So this was a learning experience for me. One that I will never forget. I do like the look once I got them on. I am glad I had the opportunity to try these. @KISSlashes #contest  #KiSSproducts

The fifth item was Kiss Strip Lash Adhesive. This product helped me tremendously when applying my kiss lashes. I couldn't have applied them without it. I had no eye irritation at all. @KISSlashes #contest

The sixth item was NYC New York Color 24 hour waterproof liner. I love that this liner is larger than others. It makes creating those wings easier. Also it doesn't wash off if it gets wet. #cityproofnyc #contest 

The seventh item was Oreida Tater Tots. I received a coupon for this product and quickly redeemed it. We love tater tots and keep them as a staple in our freezer. I have tried these before and I am a little prejudiced because we love them so much. They cook up crispy and you can use them as a base for a lot of different meals. @OreidaTotchos #OreidaTotchoa #contest 

The last item was Biscoff cookies. I have never tried these but they were awesome. They go very well with coffee and tea or a glass of milk. You can also use them in recipes. I love the cinnamon flavor and the crispy crunch. @Biscoff  #MyBiscoffBreak #contest 

All in all I think that @Influenster is one of my favorite companies in which to interact. They offer you products that you will fall in love with and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of other consumers.

Rose Hip Oil
Vitamin E

 I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

I have tried numerous face washes over the last few months. All of which were expensive and claimed to work. They were harsh and left my face dry and dehydrated.

In comes OZ NATURALS FACIAL CLEANSER with Rose Hip Oil and Vitamin E. I have used this product for the last 5 days, twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. I simply wet a wash cloth with hot water and applied to my face to open my pores (not to hot). Then I applied Oz Naturals Facial Cleanser to the wash cloth and washed my face thoroughly. I then rinsed my face with hot water to make sure all dirt and impurities were gone. After air drying my face I rinsed again with cold water to close pores. My regimen may seem a little extreme but it really works with this product. With each application my face felt cleaner. I was dealing with extreme dryness and clogged pores. Not only does my face look and feel cleaner, my pores are shrinking.

Rose hip oil is rich in fatty acids and helps to reduce the formation of scar tissue. Vitamin E works as an antioxidant and has the ability to regulate vitamin a in the body. This is very important for healthy skin. Ocean Minerals nourish and repair dry skin as well as stimulate cellular regeneration. This product is natural, organic, cruelty free, made in the USA, and is guaranteed to gently clean your face and clear clogged pores naturally.

I am so excited to have finally found a product that I love and that works for me. Not only does it work but it is affordable. The fact that it is made in the USA is a big plus. Then you throw in Natural and Organic and I am sold. You can find more information at this link, OZ NATURALS FACIAL CLEANSER WITH ROSE HIP OIL AND VITAMIN E. There is so much more to this product that you need to discover for yourself. Oz Naturals is a leading natural skin care company.

I have been running the Star Wars Darth Vader Capacity Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier since we got it. This product adds moisture to your environment and greatly improves your air quality. It comes with a 2 liter capacity with 24 hours of run time. There is no filter required. There is an adjustable mist setting and auto off function.
I have already noticed a great difference in our air quality since last night and I love it. The air smells and feels fresher and cleaner. My grandson has allergies and sneezes all the time. He hasn't sneezed once since we set it up. The easy to follow instructions and simplicity of this product made it easy to set up and operate.
The Darth Vader design was the biggest draw for my grandson. He is so excited for this product to be set up in his room. He thinks it is very cool. We love this product. I received this product at a discount for my honest and unbiased review.


I received Lori's Salt Caramel Syrup for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

I live in a world where fried chicken is a weekly meal. Watermelon is loved by all and considered a summer staple. Biscuits and gravy are served almost everyday and molasses are left sitting on the kitchen table to be had by all. So when I had the opportunity to test this product I was excited. I expected something along the lines of pancake syrup. That was not the case at all.

Lori's Salt Caramel Syrup is a caramelized cane sugar with mineral water, Tahitian vanilla, GMO free Boyajian maple, and Celtic sea salt. It is fat free, all natural and has a taste of sweet and salty. There are only four ingredients in this product so I was surprised at the delicious taste.

I used this product on a batch of pancakes and loved it. It had a very pleasant caramel flavor with just a hint of saltiness. It is a perfectly balanced flavor. I did not stop there. I had to try it on ice cream. It was much better than the caramel products on the market. Have you ever tried to google the ingredients in caramel sauce? I had no luck at all. It is like they don't want you to know. I also had to have this in my coffee. So I made an iced caramel frappe, homemade. You definitely can not do that with molasses or regular pancake syrup. I plan on placing this on top of my oatmeal in the morning. I can not wait to try it. However, I know it is going to be great.

Lori's Salt Caramel Syrup is made by a company called French Connection which was founded in 2009 in Ashland, Oregon USA. I found Lori's story amazing and inspiring. The fact that this product is made in the USA gives me another reason in which to purchase for my family.

So what it comes down to is this. Lori's Salt Caramel Syrup is not like other syrups on the market. You can use it on anything: pancakes, biscuits, ice cream, coffee, oatmeal, cake. You can try this product with any item at all, it is multi-purpose. So please go check it out and then purchase yourself a bottle. You will not be disappointed.

ACF Waist Trimmer Ab Belt

I received this at a discount for my honest and unbiased review. I have been wearing the Waist trimmer everyday since I received it. I have never tried a product like this at all. I have lost one inch around my waist line. I retain water like crazy due to salts in food I guess. I have eliminated adding extra salt and still have issues.

I have worn this product for 3 days all day long. I have already lost an inch around my waist line. I know everyone is different when it comes to their body but the Waist trimmer is really working for me. I have worn it to work, around the house, while walking and while running around with my 5 year old. It is comfortable enough to not interfere with daily activities and it does not bunch up or slide around. I am very impressed with the ACF Waist Trimmer AB Belt and wish I had discovered it years ago.
The ACF Waist Trimmer Ab Belt covers your entire abdominal area and is 9 inches wide. It is non-slip so it does not bunch up or slide around. It repels sweat and prevents bacteria build up. It is custom made to retain body heat while removing extra water weight and it made of 100% latex free neoprene. It also comes with a money back guarantee.

SPOILER ALERT! Earn Your Spot in the next YSL VoxBox!


I received this product complimentary via +Influenster for testing purposes. 

There are no other tater tots that compare to this brand. These are better fried like any other potato but do very well in the oven. The oven is my preferred method of preparation. Not only are they awesome with plain ketchup but you can prepare other dishes and use these as a base. I just recently prepared #OreidaTotchos wraps and they were awesome, #contest. They go well with any meats or veggies and I love keeping an extra bag in the freezer for a special treat. 
We also fix these up and make them extra crunchy for our hiking trips. Matthew doesn't like the fruit and nut combinations so this is perfect for him when he is dragging on the trail.

Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream

I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from +Influenster but all opinions are my own. 

Due to our weird weather my skin is always dry and lackluster in appearance. I received Cetaphil Moisturizing cream to try and review and it is helping with dryness. This product is clinically proven to help moisture loss. This non-greasy formula is great for elbows, knees, ankles or any other area that that needs extensive hydration. 
We are also using this product on the arms of my five year old as he has eczema. He has had eczema since he was 6 months old. However, it has gotten worse over the last few weeks. He has now noticed the problem and doesn't understand why his arms have little bumps all over them and why he always itches. Cetaphil has helped him with his itchy skin and he now requests that this product be applied to his arms on a regular basis. 
Cetaphil quickly absorbs, is non-greasy, fragrance free and non-irritating. They also offer a variety of products like moisturizers, cleansers, baby, acne prone and eczema. #Cheerphil  #sponsored.

I received DESTINY CANDLE by KAREN MICHELLE several days ago and I love the scent as well as the concept. With these candles you light it, melt it and then pour it on. These are 100% natural warm body oil lotions. It is a 3 in 1 product as it also comes with a surprise buried inside. 
Made with coconut oil, shea butter, vitamin E, apricot oil, jojoba oil, soy oil and aloe vera oil these are all natural. Non GMO and cruelty free. Up to 45 hours of burn time and individually handcrafted in the USA. 
I tried my candle last night and the scent is amazing. I opted for the coconut vanilla otherwise called Amor/intense love. The sweet aroma filled my whole apartment. When I used it on my hands it helped with their dryness immediately. This morning they are still very soft. 
When I pulled my surprise out of the candle, it was a ring, I was a little disappointed. It looked cheap so I wasn't impressed with the jewelry. But It was still a nice perk. After revealing your surprise jewelry, snap a pic of it and send it to Destiny Candles for the value. I will be sending my pic in a few minutes. I am so excited to see it's value. 
If you head over to their site by clicking the link above you will see that they are having a contest. The prize is a ring valued at $10,000 dollars. You will also see a variety of scents in which to choose from. These candles range in price from 14.99 for a 4 ounce to 24.99 for an 8 ounce tin or glass. There are so many scents I would like to try. Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you soon.

I received the RCA VOYAGER PRO WITH KEYBOARD CASE for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I love this tablet. It is a 7 inch tablet with a detachable keyboard case. It also comes in several colors. This is my first tablet ever and when I started it up after charging it walked me through the process. It was very simple until I came to the Google sign in page. I could not connect. After a full day I finally discovered it was not the tablet but a problem with Google itself. It is very easy to carry in my bag and since it comes with a case I do not need to go out and buy one. It is small enough to go everywhere and doesn't weigh you down. This product offers you convenience as well as portability. These can be bought at and they range in price from 49.99 to 69.99. It operates on Android 5.0 (Lollipop). This tablet includes a front camera. That is probably the only disadvantage to this particular tablet. However, I wouldn't be taking pictures with a tablet anyway. I have included the specifications below. Thank you for stopping by my blog and have a great day.

Primary Color:Gray
Processor Type:Quad-Core Processor
Processor Speed:1.30 GHz
System Ram:1 GB
Hard Drive Size:N/A
Laptop Screen Size:N/A


Hammond's Pigs N' Taters Chocolate Bars come in a 2.25 ounce size and offer you a sweet and salty mix. It contains chocolate, bacon and potato chips, the site says it is "Perilously Addictive". Price is 2.95 for a single bar or cases of 12 for 30.00. 
In an age where we cater to being different and distinct I thought I would find myself drooling over this chocolate bar. That was not the case for me. It is very good but I would prefer to fry up some bacon and dip it in fresh chocolate then sprinkle with potato chips. The consistency is like a crunch bar, so there is that appeal. But I can not taste the bacon at all. You can taste the saltiness and slight hint of chips.
I expected more from this chocolate bar as it cost 3.39 plus tax. Yes I bought it as i thought it would be great to try. I found it to be mediocre at best. You can find these at Hammond's online or at some retail stores.@HammondsCandies…/chocolate-bar-pigs-n-tater…
