GISALA METAL CERAMIC HAIR STRAIGHTENER




My hair is mostly straight already but I do have wave. My hair also loves to go frizzy anytime it rains. If I used hair serums I always ended up getting an oily look. Then I discovered hair straighteners. Gone are the days of hair spray and fancy shampoos and conditioners. Hair straighteners are the in thing, oh and make sure you get yourself some argan oil or your favorite hair serum.

What you get:
1 Straightener
1 Glove
1 Storage Bag
1 Brush
1 Warranty Card


What I love about this brush is that it is metal and has an auto shut off. I am always forgetting things. So this is just one less worry for me. The on the box instructions make it less likely to lose paperwork. I love being able to open the box for a quick reference.

This brush was so easy to use. I just powered it on and used the plus and minus button to adjust the temperature. Once it had heated up I was ready to go. I also use hair serums to prevent heat damage. I think it is very important. I have some products that I had ordered as well as some I bought at our local stores. I just applied the serum and started brushing. I did not use the glove in the video, I forgot, haha. But this is something that I will use in the future. I also love that this product comes with a hair clip. Normally you do not receive these things with other straighteners. I call them perks. This brush comes in 3 colors so everyone can get the color that they enjoy.

My hair has never looked more amazing. I have used this brush after my hair has been washed and dried and that is all it has needed. Even when I get up from sleep my hair still feels amazing. If you guys do not have this brush, you must check it out. You will not be unhappy with it at all.







In ending I have to say that this is my all time favorite hair straightener. Not only does it tame my frizzy hair on rainy days, but it got rid of my wavy hair for a straighter look. I love that there are some accessories included with this brush that makes styling my hair easier. Doing your hair should not feel like a chore. They just made fixing my hair more enjoyable. I would recommend this product for anyone that has curly hair and also for those of us who need healthier looking hair.

Hiware® Glass Water Carafe with Stainless Steel Lid




I felt very privileged to be able to sample and review this great Carafe that is not only great for water, but for juice, teas, infused water and whatever else you might want to put in it.

This carafe is very elegant as well as serviceable. It is made from borosilicate glass and is 1.5 liters or 50 ounces. It is dishwasher safe but I prefer to hand wash just because it is glass and might break in the dishwasher. It is for hot as well as cold beverages and I have tried it with both. The handle is also made of glass and I was hesitant at first to use the handle. However, It held up and I was very pleased. This product also comes with a Lifetime Guarantee so you can not go wrong with choosing this product.

My Sunday brunch just became a sophisticated affair, haha. I have discovered that I do need some fruit dishes and a nicer tablecloth to go along with this pitcher. My table is looking a little drab compared to this pitcher. You guys go check this product out and grab yourselves one. You will not be disappointed.

LIFE WIPES




I  always need wipes and have been using baby wipes while hiking/camping or when we are on the go. I have a 6 year old and it seems we always need wipes. Napkins just do not cut it. So I was able to try these and they worked so much better for me than baby wipes.

These are so much larger than baby wipes. They are 12" by 24" and offer you more than the smaller wipes. They are very durable. I was able to use one and rinse it and then repeat.

They are pre-moistened but not so much that they drip. There is just enough moisture to keep them wet and serviceable. I love that they are individually packaged. I get so tired of fighting with the wipes that I had been using. You know where you pull one and two or three come out of the package. This was a huge plus for me.





I think what I love the most is that the packages are so small and convenient that you can pack them anywhere and not lose space. I have distributed these into my backpacks, purse, and messenger bags for quick and easy access.

These are portable, giant sized, eco friendly, hypoallergenic and vitamin e and aloe vera enriched.

They are perfect for any outdoor activity as well as dining out or quick cleanups. I would recommend these to anyone that hikes/camps, has children or anyone who works out on a regular basis. These are great for anyone. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

THE SUNLIGHT PILGRIMS by JENNI FAGAN



THE SUNLIGHT PILGRIMS by Jenni Fagan tells the story of a small Scottish caravan park living through what people believe is the end of times. People are found frozen in the street, schooling and health care are run on a voluntary basis and euthanasia has become acceptable. People are struggling to survive but life must continue. Dylan who just lost his mother and grandmother, arrives in the park one night to start all over. He meets Stella who is struggling to be accepted and her mother who he quickly realizes he is interested in.

The main focus of the story is Dylan and Constance, but do not count out Stella who stands out amongst all the fear and death. Stella is a trans teen who just wants to be accepted for who she is and is quickly becoming. A harsh winter has set in and they are calling for temperatures to be -40 and below with snow and ice. It would seem that the end of the world is near and that is all I have to say about that, haha.

I found this book to be a little boring through the first few chapters. It was really hard for me to get into. It has taken me several weeks to finish it. However, I did find the characters to be interesting and lively. Once I progressed past the first few chapters I was more interested.

I can not say this is my favorite book of all time. I was interesting and once the story unfolded I became more interested in seeing how the plot progressed. I would give this book 3 stars as I found it okay.

I received this book through blogging for books complimentary for my honest and unbiased review.

Aweoods Children Indian Story Play Tent Indoor/Outdoor Teepee



I received this awesome children's Indian play tent to review and my child loved it. I also loved it as it kept my child busy for hours outdoors as well as indoors. He even sets it in front of the television and sticks his sleeping bag in it, crawls in and watches his movies.

This product was so easy to assemble. It comes with the tepee, plastic tubing, a flag, and décor piece. The plastic tubing has a cord in the middle that makes instructions not necessary. I assembled the top piece and then added the leg pieces. It is important to note that you should stick the top piece inside the tent and add the leg pieces one at a time. Also leave each bottom portion of the leg un-attached until you add the extreme bottom piece inside the tent. It makes it so much easier. Once you have all piping in place tie the cloth strips around the piping to give it more stability and to keep the fabric in place. I then secured the Velcro strips on the front and added the flag at the top and décor piece as well. Voila, it is ready to go.




The fabric on this product seemed to be a canvas type material so I had to go look it up. It is 100% polyester fabric so it is very sturdy. I know I said a canvas type of material in my video but that is in-accurate but in my own defense it does feel like canvas. The tubing seems to be PVC or something similar.

We have been playing with this product for several weeks now and I can not stress enough how much my child loves it. Normally when I am looking for him when we are indoors I now know to look inside the tepee.
