Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair-Curl Activator Cream!

I heard about this on a youtube video, and had to go snag some for myself. I found mine at Sally’s, but you can see it here on Amazon, if interested. I can’t believe this is only like 6 bucks! πŸ˜‰

About the product:

CANTU FOR NATURAL HAIR MOISTURIZING CURL ACTIVATOR CREAM smoothens and enhances natural curl pattern revealing frizz-free volume and is great for a quick wash-and-go.
REDUCE FRIZZ: Activates curls revealing frizz-free, bouncy curls.
ADDS VOLUME: Delivers volume and adds shine.
Coconut Oil protects hair.

This stuff is amazing! I was on day 3 curls. I didn’t want to wash my hair yet, so I sprayed it down with water from a spray bottle, {actually it is a hair mixture that I made with water, witch hazel and essential oils.} I then added the Cantu curl activator cream to my hair, and fingered it through. This stuff smells so good, by the way! I wrapped my hair in a microfiber towel for about an hour, then took it off and dried my hair with my Bed Head Curls In Check diffuser. My curls looked SO good! I was very impressed! There was no frizz, no buildup or anything. My hair just looked really great. I am sold..LOL! πŸ˜€

USB Car Essential Oil Diffuser by Senses-Pro {Review}

If you are like me and love essential oils, then I am sure you use them all the time, right? I always wanted to have the option to diffuse in my vehicle. Well, I have tried several diffusers for my car and have not been happy with one of them. That is, until now! πŸ™‚
This diffuser from Senses-Pro works just like it says it does. It’s a great size, and easy to use right out of the box!

The amount of mist it puts out is impressive. I have tried others that didn’t work quite as well. Ones where I could not see any mist at all. This one is nice because you can see that it is working. It has 2 settings: continuous and intermittent. I will say though, on the ” intermittent” setting my particular diffuser doesn’t work that way. It just puts out a little less mist than the first setting—which I am okay with. No biggie for me! πŸ™‚

Car Diffuser//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this diffuser for sure.
I purchased it on Amazon.com if you happen to want to check it out.

The New Luxury Cat Hammock {Review} #PetMagasinCats

Recently I was given the opportunity to test and review this super cute luxury cat hammock from Pet Magasan.. Maybe I should say for my cats to test and for me to review..ha!

Just a quick overview of what this product is, via Amazon…..

Product description

Everyone knows that taking naps is a cat’s favorite pastime. With the exclusive Pet Magasin cat hammock, your kitty or kitties will be able to indulge in the fine art of sleeping in comfort and real style, and look adorable while they’re doing it.

This hammock may be made for cats, but it’s truly a piece of fine furniture. The frame is made from solid hard maple — no cheap particle board, plywood, or plastic. The wood has a clear finish so its natural beauty shows through. Other materials include sturdy chain and other hardware of polished steel and the strong but soft fabric of the hammock bed itself.

The bed of the hammock measures 30″ x 20″ and the frame is 42″ long. This bed is big enough for even the largest cat to sprawl out on. It will easily support 50 pounds, and would also be good for a medium-small dog. The hammock comes with a machine-washable blanket that can be laid over the fabric of the hammock, making cleaning easier.

This item is shipped flat and is easy to assemble with the clear step-by-step illustrated instructions that are included.

It’s not often that you see a cat bed that you’ll be proud to have in your house, that looks stylish and elegant as well as cute, and that will be admired by your guests. Order your Pet Magasin cat hammock today; both you and your cat are sure to love it!

Pet Magasin is a company committed to manufacturing top-quality products for your pets.

Now let me say, I was super excited for my cats to try this out. I have 2 cats. Frosty is 14 years old and Leo is just over 1 year old. It looks so awesome and so cozy, for sure.

When I received this, of course it had to be assembled. It really wasn’t that hard to do, but looks can be deceiving. I mean, it looked more complicated to put together than it actually was. Nevertheless, I got my hubby to put it together, which really did not take much time at all.

I noticed right away that this product is made from solid wood. Nice! It is sturdy and well made….something that seems like it will last a good long time. I was pleased about that.

So the verdict?

Okay, so you know how cats are, right? Finicky! My cats didn’t really take to this right away but seem to be slowly coming around. I think my first mistake was not tying the ropes tight enough on the ends. When my older and most skittish cat got on, it did swing a bit much for his liking. I realized that the ropes needed to be tied much tighter so that the hammock did not move around as much. So, I think to play it safe it is good to start your cats off with those ropes tied tight so it doesn’t freak them out–haha!

Here is my Frosty on the cat hammock. He happens to love the super soft blanket that comes with it. Both of my cats do.

This is Leo giving it a test run…

Untitled//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Okay, I have to throw this pic in here.

Untitled//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

My girls were using this as a bed for their stuffed animals! They occasionally play with it that way…haha! I mean, it is really cute! Those stuffed animals love it, too! πŸ˜‰

Overall, this is a really neat product. It is solid and something I think your cats will enjoy…once they get used to it. Cats can be strange at times. πŸ˜‰ Some cats might love this right away, but others may take a bit of time to come around to the idea of a hammock.

If you want to learn more about this fun product, visit the product page on Amazon.com. If this is something that you are interested in for your cats, you can get 30% off on Amaon.com with this code: 5F2WSQO4

Thanks for reading–have a wonderful day!

I received this product in exchange for my honest review. Opinions stated by me in this post are honest and 100% my own.

Teeth Whitening w/ Activated Charcoal Powder + Coconut And Xylitol//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

My take:

Once you get past the messiness of this product, then you will see that it actually works! I don’t have any before and after photos, only photos of the product itself, but I wanted to show you what it looks like and the size of the container that you get.

So what you do is open this up {carefully, so you do not spill}, wet your toothbrush, and dip it into the container. I suggest that you use a different toothbrush for this. Then brush as usual. πŸ˜‰

What I like about this: It works, it has a pleasant taste….almost no taste actually. {It doesn’t taste bad}. It only takes a wee little bit, so this container will last you a good long while.

Negatives: Messy! I wouldn’t say that this is a deal breaker, but you need to be mindful of this when opening the jar and when using the product.

Overall, I would recommend it! πŸ˜‰

Activa Naturals Greens Superfood Powder {Review}

Recently I had the opportunity to try an awesome product from Active Naturals: Greens SuperFood Powder. I thought “perfect timing” because I have just recently completely changed my eating habits. I am eating “clean foods” and getting daily exercise, so this would fit right in with my lifestyle change or “plan” if you will. πŸ™‚

What really made me take notice of this product was the fact that it has so much going for it. So many wonderful, healthy ingredients in just one little scoop! It has a berry flavor, so I thought that this would blend right in with my smoothies easily.

A little more about Greens Superfood Powder….

AMAZING GREENS WITH SO MANY BENEFITS – Never Worry about missing on the recommended daily servings of veggies and fruits. Each green powder scoop provides the benefits of raw super foods, probiotics, digestive enzymes and antioxidants for the overall health, wellness & energy boost and support for the weight loss or cleansing or detox programs.

PLANT BASED FOODS FOR IMMUNE SUPPORT – Blended with super foods such as organic wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, chlorella & broccoli; antioxidants such as acai, maca, carrot, beet, raspberry, rose hips, pineapple, goji berries, green tea & acerola cherries; Fiber such as flax seeds & apple pectin; digestive enzymes and probiotics mixed with stevia.

MEAL REPLACEMENT OR SMOOTHIES – Moms love it because of the nutrients such as the amazing power of alkalizing greens, antioxidant fruits, nourishing superfoods and herbs. Trying weight loss programs? Add it to your meal replacement choices such as juices, soups, green tea, health drinks etc.

SWEETENED WITH STEVIA & BERRIES – Everyone loves Stevia the natural sweetener, including the professional nutritionists. No artificial sugar added. Vary the quantity of water to suit to your personal taste preferences.

WHOLE FOODS IN EACH SERVING – No fillers, No Chemicals, No artificial sweeteners, No additives and Vegan, Gluten Free, Non GMO Raw Fruits and Vegetables, Herbs, Vitamins and Minerals for natural vitality and vigor.

Not only does this sound great, but this tastes great, too! I happen to like adding this in with my spinach avocado smoothies. Along with the spinach and avocado, I add in almond milk, an apple, a little bit of banana and a scoop of Greens SuperFood Powder. Delicious! Filling, too!

My hubby likes to use this as well, but he just adds a scoop to a glass of water in the mornings and drinks it that way. It tastes so good, that even mixed with water, it is yummy! πŸ˜‰

After using this for over a week, I have decided that this stuff is awesome and I would most definitely purchase again. It tastes great, and I feel great!

Maybe you don’t eat enough vegetables or healthy foods. Maybe you do, but just want that extra in your diet. Why not? This product is filled with antioxidants and probiotics. I have really enjoyed it, and think that you will, too!

Neon Liquid Chalk Markers from ArtColors

I recently had the opportunity to try out some new liquid chalk markers. I love having chalk markers around…they are great! When regular chalk smears, liquid chalk markers have staying power. πŸ˜‰

I have a contact paper chalkboard on my fridge, and I also have one of my kitchen cabinets covered with chalkboard contact paper. I love using chalk markers with these because it is so much easier to write more than you could using regular chalk.

Here are the markers I tested:


https://www.giveawayservice.com/p/y5a0b4t5/i7l8x1b0

Description via Amazon….

12 BRIGHT NEON COLORS. Add more brightness in your everyday activity! Have a nice time with your kids and set free the artist inside you. These Chalk Markers write smoothly on all kinds of non-porous surface: chalkboards, metal, glass, plastic, etc.
TOTALLY SAFE AND FRIENDLY IN USE. Our Neon color liquid markers don’t contain any toxic or dangerous liquids. These art chalks are totally approved for using in classrooms, restaurants, home and offices, allowing you to realize many interesting ideas!
FINE TIP FOR MORE DRAWING OPTIONS. Our Chalks are perfect to create both fine and bold lines due to the reversible chisel tip. Endlessly you have no limits, no matter how detailed your drawings are! This is a great step forward for creative people.
VERY RELIABLE CAPS. Every marker is complemented with unique cap that protects tips from damage. Such an accessory will allow you to use your markers even longer and save your money as you needn’t to buy another one.
MONEY BACK POLICY – If you are not completely satisfied with this presser, we’ll refund your purchase price. We want our customers to be 100% happy.

This is my kitchen cabinet with a little Thanksgiving message {using these chalk markers, of course}…

Chalk markers//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Here is the calendar on my fridge as well….

Chalk markers//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

All of these markers worked very well for me. The colors are vibrant and the tips work great and are just the right size for writing.
What I {originally} loved about this set, was that it came with a silver and gold chalk marker as well. I say originally, because at first I loved this idea. The perfect markers for the holidays. Well, the silver and gold did not come off of my chalkboard. I tried everything, and it was as if it were permanent marker. :/ I am not sure if it is because I am using chalkboard contact paper, but all of the other colors washed off easily.

Other than that, the markers work very well. I just won’t be using the gold and silver on my chalkboard again. πŸ˜‰

If you want to learn more about this set, the link is below! Have a great day!

The Rock Crawler RC Car – A Fun Remote Control Car for Kids!

Check this bad boy out!

image//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I recently got this Rock Crawler for my kids but mostly for my hubby–haha! No really! I thought my kids would like this. My hubby has a remote control car already, so I thought it would be fun to have another so that the kids can play, too!

This is a really cool car with big wheels. I guess I should say “truck”, because it is actually a truck. πŸ˜‰
It climbs over obstacles with ease, and is super easy to “drive.” My 8 year old daughter has no problems maneuvering this truck forward, backward, and all over our yard! It looks really cool, too–right?

image//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

So here are the stats! This is listed on Amazon.com.

This Rock Crawler Truck is Massive (1/14 Scale / Over 12 inches long), and makes a brilliant gift idea for any child or adult. 4×4 remote control car for kids with oversized tires enabling it to adapt to off-road and tricky obstacles in its path (off road, climbing over pebbles and large stones, grass and paving is not a problem)
The rock master rock crawler has high strength shocks you normally only see on more expensive RC car vehicles. This awesome rock crawler remote control car for kids even has fully working headlights!
BONUS! Comes with everything included, even all required batteries, plus even an extra set for the car itself – 6 x AA for the crawler and 3 x AA for the controller. It’s a much safer option than remote control toys that come with a rechargeable battery pack.

What do we think? This is a super fun toy! It is not designed to go VERY fast, so that it can be controlled easily by children as well as adults. It is a lot of fun to watch it go over sticks and rocks off road, as well as over pavement. We give it a thumbs up! πŸ˜€

The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance

Not too long ago, I had the opportunity to try out a brand new game for kids that is Bible based: The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance.
This game is filled with lots of quests and adventure! You can explore the world of Aethasiaβ„’, and join the Resistance in their fight against the tyrannical emperor and his army of mechanical men! It is just the type of game that kids love. πŸ™‚

About the game:

Scarlet City is committed to creating biblical engagement media products that advance biblical literacy in a robust and relevant way. The Aetherlight is designed to serve Christian community by creating an immersive and fun experience that not only motivates and engages pre-teens with biblical thinking, but connects with their world as well.
The Bible is one complete story from Genesis to Revelation (not a random collection of unrelated stories). Despite the many different stories and types of literature in the Bible, there is a definite narrative thread that tells a purposeful story β€” the presence and activity of God in the world to work through his people to redeem creation. Jesus is the high-point of this Story – it is all about him, it all only makes sense with him. Humanity has a part to play in this story, by partnering with God in his redemption of his people and creation.

Check out the trailer:

My youngest daughter played this and had a great time. You are on an adventure, you can craft items, and so much more! The graphics are amazing in this game and it definitely has lots of elements throughout to keep kids interested. We really enjoyed it!

Stratos Spheres by Think Fun! {Review}

I just wanted to share with you another fun and unique game called Stratos Spheres. It looks pretty interesting, right?

Stratos Spheres is a 2 player strategy game. It is like 4-in-a-row, but with a twist!

A little more about Stratos Spheres:

Stratos Spheresβ„’
2-Player Strategy Game

Take four-in-a-row to a whole new dimension with Stratos Spheres! Stratos Spheres loses the 2-D board and lets you build the game – and your logic skills – as you go. To start, add one of your colored spheres to the white neutral sphere and pass it to your opponent. Your opponent then adds a sphere of his/her color. This 2-player game goes back and forth until one player gets four of his/her spheres in a row – in any dimension. With its 3-D construction, Stratos Spheres takes a classic play pattern and adds a dynamic new level of strategy and fun!

Type: All Products Logic Games
Skill: Logic and Problem Solving

Age: 8 and Up
Players: 2 Player
Instructions: View PDF
Features:
1 White Sphere
12 Blue Spheres
12 Gold Spheres
Game-Go Bag
Instructions

We really like this game because it really is a “hands-on” game. It says for ages 8 and up, but I honestly feel that a 6 or 7 year old can learn this game easily!
I don’t know how ThinkFun comes up with so many fun, interesting and different games, but they always do! I love how their games challenge you. You are using your brain, strategizing and having fun all at the same time. Another hit, if you ask me! πŸ™‚

You can grab the game here on Amazon.com! Thanks for reading!
