Somasix Alphabet Magnets Review

alphamagnet
The above picture is from the company itself. My magnets were identical to those pictured. The little one I wanted to review these (which I received at a discounted rate for my honest review) loved them so much I wasn’t able to get a picture because he took them home with him.

Alphabet magnets are everywhere. What Somasix does with its product to set them apart from others is include upper- and lowercase letters in the set. I usually only find uppercase letters in alphabet sets. This is great when you are wanting kiddos to learn letter recognition. They can see that there is more than one way a letter can be seen.

Peppermint Essential Oil by Simply Earth #SimplyEarth

Peppermint Essential Oil by Simply Earth

I love essential oils. They can be used in MANY different things. One of my favorite uses is to put a few drops in my diffuser. I love experimenting with different oils and different combinations.

One of my favorite essential oils to use in the mornings is peppermint. I put about five drops in my diffuser. I love the crisp smell and it helps me not feel so sleepy.

I have tried a few different brands of peppermint essential oil. I like some of them and others I don’t care for the smell. I do love Simply Earth’s smell of peppermint. It is not too sweet or too strong. It is just right.

Regal Appeal Stainless Steel Tea Infuser #Review

tea1

Martha loves tea.  She shops at Teavana any chance she can.  She will always bring home new loose teas to try.  We tried cotton tea bags, but it gets frustrating rinsing them out and waiting for them to dry.  These tea infusers are perfect.  You put in the desired amount of tea, screw the lid shut, and put it in a hot cup of water for the appropriate amount of time.  She has used these several times.  They are easy to use and easy to clean.  No more waiting for cotton bags to dry!

I received these tea infusers to review.  I was not compensated in any other way.  Right now, you can buy four tea infusers for $14.99.  You can make a cute gift by buying a cute tea mug and placing some loose tea with a tea infuser inside.  You can find the tea infusers on Amazon.  (This link is not an affiliate link.  I do not get compensated in any way if you click on the link or if you buy the product.)

Snuggle Fresh Spring Flowers Dryer Sheets

Did you know that Snuggle has a new scent?  The scent is Fresh Spring Flowers, and I was able to try the dryer sheets.

I love springtime for all the blooming flowers.  I love having that smell in my house.  I look for ways to use my dryer sheets other than the dryer.  I want this smell all over the house.

You can of course put dryer sheets in the dryer to have your clothes and such smelling fresh.  I love putting half a dryer sheet in my dresser drawers; I only put half because that is all I need.  I also put them in my linen closets.

Do you want to try the new Snuggle dryer sheets? I love mine!  Here is a coupon for fifty cents off.

Clear Shower Curtain Liner #Review

shower

I received this product for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I can always use a shower curtain liner. It seems like my liner is always getting torn especially where the shower rings attach.  No matter what we try with regular liners, this always happens.  With this shower curtain liner, it would take quite a bit of force (that I am not willing to try because I love this liner) to tear where the rings attach.  There are metal grommets at the top as well as extra reinforcement where the rings attach.  This is one of my favorite features of the liner.  The liner is clear just as it states.

shower2

The care instructions on the package say to take a damp sponge or cloth with soapy water (or antibacterial soap) once a month to wash down the liner.  You cannot put it in the washing machine; this is something I don’t like.  I like to be able to take it off the shower rod and put in the washing machine and wash on hot.

The shower curtain liner is 6 feet by 6 feet.  This is long enough for my tub.  I do not have a separate shower stall.  When you take the liner out of the package, there is a “plastic” smell.  I have had this with other liners.  As with the other liners, the smell quickly dissipates.  I no longer notice the plastic smell.

If you would like to purchase this shower curtain liner, you can find it on Amazon.  At the time of publication, the shower curtain liner costs $19.97.  My Amazon link is NOT an affiliate link.  I do not get paid for you clicking on the link or if you decide to purchase the shower curtain liner.

Vanilla Mint Deodorant Creme Review and Giveaway #LoveYourBody

Bella Organics Vanilla Mint Deodorant Creme

Bella Organics
Vanilla Mint
Deodorant Creme

I have wanted to try a deodorant with all-natural ingredients.  Here are the ingredients in the : Organic Shea Butter, Organic Arrowroot Powder, (Vegan), Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Aluminum-Free Baking Soda, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, Organic Vanilla Extract, Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil.  It doesn’t get any simpler than that.  I love being able to read all the ingredients without needing a science degree.

I was a little afraid of the application.  You take a pea-sized amount and rub under each arm until applied.  I was wondering what my hand would feel like after I applied it.  I was thinking my hand would feel sort of dry since deodorant repels moisture.  My hand felt fine.  I washed them after I applied the deodorant, and you couldn’t tell I used my hand to apply it.

I am really impressed with this deodorant.  I wasn’t paying attention to the different essential oils used when I was using it so I wasn’t thinking about the different properties of each oil.  I was so surprised at how my underarms would feel cool from the peppermint.  I cannot wait to use this during the summer when it is hot in Houston.  I have been using this daily for a week with no problems.

E-Book Green Smoothies: The Weight Loss and Detox Secret #MyOwnVeggieWorld

greensmoothies

I received a Kindle copy of this E-book for review purposes. I was not compensated in any other way.

I like the way the book is set up with its chapters. It explains green smoothies and talks about the benefits to drinking green smoothies. There is a chapter titled “Green Smoothies-The Healthiest Weight Loss Program.” I did not focus too much on this chapter. I do like how simple the book is to understand. It is a quick read. There are a lot of smoothie recipes in the book. I did not count how many recipes, but the front of the book says there are more than fifty recipes. That is a lot of recipes!

I do like the recipes that I have tried. There is nutritional information available for each recipe. My teen and I love this. Martha loves to make green smoothies and likes to see the nutritional information. I have tried at least 5 recipes, and Martha has tried more. We plan on drinking more smoothies this summer when we can get fresh fruits and vegetables.

I like having this E-book as a quick reference when I want a smoothie.

A Kindle version of the book is available for $2.99 at the time this post was written. You can find it on Amazon.  (This is not an affiliate link.  I do not get compensated in any way if you click on the link or if you purchase the book.)

Total Hair Repair Oil #Review #FoxBrim

foxbrim2

 

I know I have mentioned before how thick Tink’s hair is.  She recently decided to have a couple of inches cut off, and the curls and waves returned with a vengeance.  Products that worked in the past were not working as well with the curls and waves.  We needed something to tame it.  She decided to try FoxBrim Total Hair Repair Oil.  Her hair wasn’t damaged per se (she does use a flat iron every so often and a hair dryer about once a week) so I didn’t know if she would get all the benefits form the Total Hair Repair Oil.

According to FoxBrim, the Total Hair Repair Oil contains key natural ingredients including “organic argan oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, grapeseed oil, and sunflower oil.”  I have used these ingredients separately for different things, so I was intrigued as to how they would respond together in a hair product.

Tink loves this!  It helps keep her hair straight without weighing it down.  It also helps tame it on the extra humid days we have in Texas.  It makes her hair soft and manageable.

You can find FoxBrim Total Hair Repair Oil on Amazon.
