"Top It Off" Eco-Friendly Wine Topper Review!

Hello, hello, everyone!!

Today I have a really cute product to review for you! I was recently selected to review the "Top It Off" Eco-Friendly Wine Toppers!

These guys are very convenient for when you've started a bottle but don't have a way to keep it without finishing it! Putting the cork back in can be a pain (who wants pieces in there?!) and having to lay the bottle on it's side or even upside down can be a risk.

These Wine Toppers are fantastic! They're durable, thick, and flexible but they hold in the liquid without leaking a drop!

Let's not forget how adorable these are! The end of each topper has a pun-y saying! This adds a little character to your bottle along with security of knowing that your bottle won't spill!

I also noticed how fresh these toppers kept our wine tasting! It didn't have that horrible exposed-taste that wine gets after sitting out!

If you're looking for a clever, secure way to keep your wine in the bottle and fresh, look no further than "Top It Off" Eco-Friendly Wine Toppers on Amazon!

Penguin Pillow Cool Mat Review!

I am SO excited to share this review because it's for something that I LOVE using daily, something that has improved my life, and something that's just really cool!! The thing that I'm talking about is the Penguin Pillow Cool Mat! I was selected to review this product in exchange for my honest opinion and I'm so excited!! I love finding products that I can get behind without hesitation. It's a big deal!

I LOVE that feeling of having a cold pillow. I think everyone does! It's awesome to lay down on it or even hug it when you get too warm at night. Unfortunately, that feeling doesn't last long and unless you've got a cooler or something handy, it's hard to get back. That's where the Penguin Pillow Cool Mat is a game-changer! This mat is full of cooling gel. When I say "cooling" I mean more like "freezing"! It's awesome! The cool lasts forever and all it takes to re-cool it is to set it aside for a minute, move the gel around, and put it back into position! This thing is SERIOUSLY awesome! It feels fantastic and it's helped me to fall asleep SO many times. Whenever I've got a headache, I'll lay on it and it eases the pain. Any time I'm feeling nauseous it helps, too!

The Penguin Pillow Cool Mat slips easily into a pillow case, since it's only about 1/4" thick. It's got a fabric cover so it's easy to clean. The stitching around the edges is durable and neat.

If you're looking for an awesome,l unique gift idea - this is it! Everyone loves a cool pillow and everyone will use it! I'm actually wanting to buy a couple because Gage loves this thing too! Find yours here!

Glucosamine Joint Supplement Review!

When looking for supplements for pets, it can be a daunting task. Between not knowing what to get, where it's made. and what it'll do for your pet, there's a lot to consider! When offered the opportunity to review K9 Joint Relief Glucosamine Joint Supplement by K9z Rule, I was excited! I have an older dog, and others who are large breed. These two types of dogs are the ideal candidate for this supplement! I wasn't sure who I would allow to test the supplement but when the bottle arrived in the mail, I didn't have to choose! This bottle is GIGANTIC! Seriously! It's hefty! On the back of the label is exact dosage instructions in large print. Because it's measured out by tea/table spoons, it's easy to get the amount that you need. I let all of my dogs try it! Nobody freaked out or struggled with the flavor, so I'm assuming they liked it. I can't ask them, obviously, so I can't state that with certainty in my review. I will say that they didn't pout afterwards! :)

This supplement has many uses: it helps to increase mobility, flexibility, and helps to rebuild cartilage.

If you're looking for a way to help your older or larger dog, I'd highly suggest K9z Rule's Glucosamine Joint Supplement! You can find your bottle here!

"Pup: A Novel of Accidental Heroism" Review!

Recently, I was offered the opportunity to review "Pup: A Novel of Accidental Heroism". I was excited because the combination of title and cover art intrigued me. I also had the feeling that it was war-based, and I'm a big fan of reading all of the different sides of a conflict...even if some aren't exactly true. 

Luckily, "Pup" played into my thirst for this kind of literature and in a great way!! The story is about John Z. Pupulowinazowski (Pup) and his experiences with being drafted into the second Korean war. I don't want to expose too much, but this book is SO CHARMING in how it's told. If you're a fan of the movie "Big Fish", you're going to love this! It's charming, funny, whimsy, and endearing. The story is told as if Pup is telling his family about his experiences. 

I really like that the personality of the characters, setting, and even the complexity of the experiences all shine through! 

If you're looking for an excellent read that won't leave you bored and will break up the mundaneness of reading unknown-after-unknown book, I HIGHLY suggest "Pup: A Novel of Accidental Heroism"! 

AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight Review!

I LOVE exploring, but sometimes I'm not always totally prepared. In fact, you could say that I've often been negative prepared in the fact that I don't usually plan for the worst. I DO keep a weapon on me in these situations, but I don't prepare for survival. With today's review, I'm one step closer to being more prepared! On top of that...I'm extremely terrified of the dark and it's storm season in Arkansas! This gadget is the AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight! 

This tool is REALLY cool and I was SO excited to review it in exchange for my honest opinion. I LOVE reviews were I can REALLY enhance my life! 

The AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight has a lot of really cool features! It's military grade, so the materials are durable. Don't worry about dropping it! Despite being so durable and such high quality, it is lightweight and doesn't take up much room. It's not bulky at all! This flashlight has a total of 29 LED lights that are powered by...3 AAA batteries! This is seriously awesome because it's such a high-powered light operated by so few and such common batteries! 

The base of the flashlight is magnetic, so it can stick to any metal surface! This makes it easy to keep track of AND allows for the emergency setting to be used and stuck to the car so that you can stay safely inside! Overall, the lights last for 100,000 hours! WOW!! If you're interested in your AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight, you can find it on Amazon! 

A Bit of Tech: Universal Periscope Lens Review!

I LOVE new gadgets and toys...especially when those things happen to play into the field of technology. It's really fun when the product that I'm offered to review is something that I might not have considered purchasing before! In this instance, I'm having a lot of fun with the Simple Royal (seller on Amazon) Periscope lens!

This lens is ideal for getting shots of something lower, so you don't have to tilt your phone and have shadows in the picture. An example would be shots of food. However, you can also use the lens to take photos on either the left or right as your phone faces forward. It's pretty awesome! I use it to take photos of my husband since he's not keen on letting me take pictures of him otherwise!

The lens comes in a hard plastic case (it allows you to keep up with it when you're not using it because it's small!) with magnetic circles that surround the camera. The circles have a light glue on them that comes off very easily. Because you have four or five replacement circles, you can use the lens on your tablet, phone, whatever! The circle is very small and flat and unobtrusive.

Once on, the lens holds securely and doesn't move around unless you want it to. The lens takes clear photos that aren't the least bit distorted.

I'm a big fan of this toy! If you're interested, get your lens here!

BriaUSA Suit Hangers Review!

I have a TON of clothes. That's mostly because the way I dress at work isn't quite the same as the way I dress at home. Add to that the fact that I have a "dressier" wardrobe, and I'm in trouble. The biggest pain in the butt is the fact that some of my flow-ier tops and dresses won't stay on the hanger!! AGH! When they fall on the floor they're bound to get cat hair and dirt on them! Not to mention, then I think for some reason that they're dirty...and it adds to my laundry burden.

When I was selected to review BriaUSA's PINK velvet hanger set in exchange for my opinion, I was SO EXCITED! Not only would these unique hangers allow me to find what I'm looking for without having to search (because these hangers look different than my other ones), but the velvet offers more resistance to sliding!

When I got them, I opened them immediately and pulled them all apart (they want to stick at first). I had some laundry to put away, so I decided to put them to the test. I hung a silky blouse on the hanger, gave it a little swing, and it didn't slide off! It's great because the little notches help to hold clothes in place. With tops made of cotton, they're not going ANYWHERE unless you want them to! The pink velvet doesn't shed or collect lint very easily. The hangers are very durable, big enough to hold wide-neck tops, and they're adorable!

If you're looking for a great addition to your closet and even a little problem-solving, I'd highly suggest these hangers! You can find them on Amazon!

Intel-A-Temp Digital Bottle Warmer and Sterilizer Review!

If you think about it...there are many, many uses for getting water to a certain temperature around the house. Especially when you want to sterilize something! For me personally, I use specific-temperature water for sterilization of syringes, to get water to a certain temperature for mixing film photography chemicals, and to warm food for various animals at times. Add to that the idea that Gage and I will eventually have kids and will need to warm bottles and sterilize them. Outside of the Intel-A-Temp, I would be putting a lot of work into getting the water to the right temperature by warming water, using the thermometer to measure the temperature, adjusting either warmer or cooler, and so on. When I was selected to review the Intel-A-Temp Digital Bottle Warmer, I was super excited!

I pulled the warmer from the box. The cup was wrapped separately, snugly packed into the actual warmer. The plastic grate was already in place over the warmer's heating element. I put the water into the unit using the cup that was included and turned the warmer on. By pressing the power button, the digital display lit up, and I could adjust the temperature to one of the three preset temperatures. From there, (let's say 45 for example), I could adjust the temperature one degree at a time, either higher or lower, by using the plus and minus buttons on either side of the power button.

This warmer is durable, well-made, and idiot-proof! I love that it isn't flimsy, but it also doesn't take up space. I will use this warmer for SO many things and it will be a big help in every day tasks! Check out how it works in my video below!

Furzie Lint Remover Review!

I'm VERY hesitant of "As Seen On TV" products. My experience is that they're cheap, don't do what they say they do, and end up in a lot of frustration. When I was selected to review the Furzie, I wasn't sure what to think...but I DID know that I was FED up with trying to lint roll and Duck Tape my couch to get the fur off. We really didn't have company over because 13 cats equals a LOT of shedding, even with brushing!

I knew which couch I needed to use this on immediately, and as soon as it arrived, I ripped it from the box and set to brushing back in forth. To my total WORKS! I'm not just talking works with elbow grease...I'm talking WORKS with EASE! The hair clumped onto itself and fell off! It's...I'm weird for saying this...FUN! I LOVE seeing the difference between the un-brushed area and the area that I just cleaned! It's amazing the difference it makes!

I started using this on my furniture and soon wondered how it would work on clothes. It works on clothing, but I don't think it's nearly as effective as it is on furniture. If you've got something with a LOT of cat fur on it, it works amazingly. For the last little hairs left behind, I would suggest a sticky lint-roller. This brush will save us a LOT of money AND sanity in the long run and I'm SO happy that I have it! It's a MUST have for pet slaves. You won't be disappointed!

Breezeway Magnetic Screen Review!

As I've mentioned, my husband and I are moving to Mosquito-Central. I'm stressed about it, to say the least. Why? Because I'm EXTREMELY allergic to mosquitoes. The bites BURN me, I swell up much bigger than normal people do, and the bites are there for literally two weeks...making me miserable.

In Mosquito-Central, the mosquitoes are literally all over the door when you get home. There's blankets of them! When you open the door...where do they go? INSIDE. And they bug you - no pun intended - all night.

Recently, I was offered the opportunity to review the Breezeway Magnetic screen door in exchange for my honest opinion. I was super excited about this because I know it's something we will use ALL THE TIME. It's also a product that will save my sanity!

My iPad is currently in the shop so I've used a stock image! 
I was happy to see that the door was durable (we'll have dogs running in and out), the stitching was tight, and the door installed easily. On top of that, the magnets are strong and snap crisply.

The best part, though, is that the holes are so small that even when brushing bugs off, they don't push through and they don't get inside!!

If you're looking for a great way to keep the summer pests at bay, and even allow a fresh breeze to blow through your house without all of the pests, you need the Breezeway Magnetic Screen Door!!

WC5P40W 5-Port USB High Speed Desktop Charger Review!

I've got a LOT of devices on my own...but then consider that my husband has his own as well and it's nearly impossible to find a place to charge up when batteries are low. And to take it a step further, it's pretty difficult to get the PRIME spot (for me it's by the bed!). When I was selected to review the  WC5P40W 5-Port USB High Speed Desktop Charger I was really excited because I knew that it would allow me to charge more devices in one place.

The USB slots are evenly spaced so that it's easy to find a place to plug up. The cords also don't get tangled up! I would expect that the box itself would get extremely hot from charging so many devices but it doesn't! There's a light on the top of the box that allows the user to see that the box is on and ready to use.

Something I didn't anticipate was how fast the box charged my devices! I'm not kidding when I say that charge time was cut in half! I'm amazed and extremely happy with this product. It's convenient, space-conserving, fast, and somehow prevents itself from overheating. I seriously need five of these for around the house!

If you're always dealing with the struggle of finding a place to plug up, too, you need one of these! You'll consider it one of your best investments ever (especially when you have all of your devices die at once)!

WojoCalm 5-Pack Review!

As someone who suffers from anxiety, finding natural alternatives to prescriptions that knock me out is important for times when I can't go to bed or afford to be zoned out. When I need to be calm but also need to be focused it can be difficult to figure out what to do. On one hand, I'm panicking but on the other, I can't afford to be useless at work. Luckily, I was selected to review wojoCALM's 5 pack of additive supplements. This supplement is tasteless when mixed into drinks (it has a light natural flavor) and goes great with hot drinks like coffee or cold drinks like tea!

The packaging is genius! The portions are measured out in small plastic tubes that are easy to throw into a lunch bag or purse and they are easy to open and pour.

The supplement is mainly composed of B Vitamins. These are essential to nerve and cell development. It also has amino acids, no sugars or artificial sweeteners. The supplement is vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and the packaging is environmentally friendly.

I love that this supplement calms me so quickly, isn't as off-putting as taking a pill, and is tasteless. It's natural and really works! I'm excited to have found something that helps with anxiety but doesn't knock me out.

Colon Detox Cleanse Review!

Sometimes, things happen with your body that you aren't quite sure of. Constipation, weight gain, gas, and low energy are all problems that are related to a colon that needs to be cleansed! So much is processed and absorbed (or sometimes not absorbed) through the colon that it makes sense for it to be the key to having a healthy system. What do you do if you think you may be suffering from a sluggis system? 

BioGanix offered me a Colon Detox Cleanse to review that I have to say - is fantastic! You don't really realize how much you need a cleansing until it's done! I wanted to make sure that there weren't any crazy ingredients in the detox, so I read the label and was happy to see that the detox included 11 natural fibers and herbs. 

I took the supplement according to the directions, and I have to warn does act as a mild laxitive. It works in that it's flushing the bad stuff out of your system! Because it's all natural, it's not harsh like regular laxatives. In addition, it's cleansing parasites, bacteria, and toxins out of your system. This affect didn't last long and it wasn't sickness-level awful. 

This supplement comes with 120 tablets, where most of these supplements come with 30 or 60. It's a fantastic value and will ensure a boost to your system! If you're looking to feel regular, energized, and even sleep need this supplement!

BarMe Flask Set with Collapsible Shot Glass Kit Review!

Anytime I can get my husband on board for a product review I'm excited! He gets something nice and he gets to tell me what he thinks. :) This also helps me to figure out the types of things that he'd like as gifts (we're in our first year of being married!). He also offers points of view that I think are interesting and that I might not have thought of before. It's really refreshing to not just hear myself talk all the time! :)

When I was offered the opportunity to review and AWESOME flask set, I immediately said yes! Sharing his opinion is easy for me to do and he ends up with AWESOME products most of the time!

BarMe has a VERY unique set. I love that it's so compact and an all-in-one. This set includes a funnel, the flask, a secure-tightening lid, and a double-sized collapsible shot glass. The shot glass folds INTO THE FLASK! How awesome is that?!?

What's most impressive about this flask is that for less than $20, it's amazingly high quality! The flask is very sharp looking. It features a stylish black pleather exterior and beautiful, sparkling stainless steel. The shot glass fits VERY snugly into the front of the flask, so you know it's not going to fall out. Gage's only concern is that it fits SUPER tightly and it takes a bit of muscle to get it out. However, we see that as a good thing because that means that it's not going to fall out. The shot glass, as I mentioned, is a double-shot, and the glass pulls up from flat to tall very smoothly. It's really awesome that it operates without catching up. It's got a metal base that helps to stabilize it (since the base is the same size or bigger than the mouth).

The flask is a very generous size (photo for reference) and holds a LOT of liquid. It's durable but lightweight and overall, it's a VERY nice gift that leaves an impression.

If you're looking for a unique, unforgettable gift to give the drink-over in your life, look no further! BarMe's flask is available here!

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above in exchange for review from Giveaway Service website. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Reference ID: pm866e6279baf83a10e3bf47d194d80a3d

Forlan Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review!

While I'm on a skincare/Hyaluronic acid serum kick, I thought I would review Forlan Skincare's Hyaluronic Acid Serum! This serum is different from others that I have tested and reviewed in that it has a much more stylish bottle, has a much fainter scent, and a little really, really goes a long way! I was so happy to receive the bottle in exchange for my honest opinion!

I love how spreadable this serum is, how evenly it applies, how quickly it absorbs, and how soft my skin is after I use it. It actively combats wrinkles through it's hydrating properties!

 I wear it to bed and my pillow doesn't feel sticky the next morning! I have very sensitive skin, and it doesn't bother me to use this serum regularly. Usually, once I've used something for a while, I'll start to have an allergic reaction to it. I have yet to have any rash with this serum and it makes me very happy as Hyaluronic Acid has helped to even out my skintone dramatically!

If you're looking for a serum with a barely-there scent, this is the one for you! Find your bottle here!

Adeline Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review!

It seems as if every time you turn around, there's a new skincare fad. Recently, I've been seeing a LOT of talk about Hyaluronic Acid serums and creams and decided that I wanted to try one to see what the hype was about. Then, I was selected to review Adeline's Hyaluronic Acid serum in exchange for my honest opinion. I was excited because I LOVE skincare items. I'm always looking for a way to make my skin healthier and more even. I hate being an adult with skin problems!

I've used Adeline products before, so I know the quality is there, however, I feel like they're really outdone themselves with this Hyaluronic Acid serum! It applies SO smoothly, glides on evenly, and absorbs quickly without leaving an oily, greasy mess behind.

I love how soft my skin feels and I love how it's beginning to look more bright and even. If you're looking for a way to get bright, glowing, soft skin, I'd highly suggest you buy your bottle here!

Party Night Anti-Hangover Supplement Review

Ok guys! Honesty time...I'm a lightweight. Like...seriously. I can't take more than a drink before I feel like I'm going to lose my lunch. It doesn't take much of anything to make me regret it the next day. That being said, I don't drink. At all. It's just not worth the headache of the next-day ordeal. And mixed drinks? Forget it. Anything above a girly drink or a fruity half-glass of wine leaves me spinning the next morning. When I was offered the opportunity to review PartyNight for free, I was excited to experiment and see what the results would be. The only thing I had to lose was being incredibly sick!

I wanted to look through the ingredients to make sure it wasn't anything too bizarre. I was happy to find that there were a lot of things I knew like Vitamins B and C, Milk Thistle extract (good for liver health), Vitamin B12, and Potassium. I decided to take the challenge. I took two capsules before I drank, had a couple of glasses of wine, and then took two capsules after I finished them. For the remainder of the night, I drank strictly water. I woke up later than usual the next day (due to staying up later than usual the night before) and was surprised to discover that I wasn't sick as a dog!!

I'm convinced that PartyNight really works and REALLY helps reduce, if not completely eliminate, hangovers! If you'd like a fun night followed by a pain-free day, get your bottle here!

Adeline Anti-Aging Moisturizer Review!

I'm all about skincare! I love getting new moisturizers, serums, eye name it! I love how the different products make my skin feel and how my skin looks better in different ways with different products! When offered the opportunity to review an anti-aging product by Adeline, I was excited!

I first noticed how professional the packaging looked. I've used some products that the label looked like it was made in MS Paint. When that happens, it makes me a little more than hesitant to try them. The lid fastens securely onto the bottle and snaps right into place! The pump operates smoothly and doesn't get stuck. It's also possible to do a half of a pump to not have to use the amount of a full pump.

I like the fact that there's virtually no "dry time" with this moisturizer. It absorbs very quickly, isn't greasy or sticky, and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and lifted. The scent isn't overbearing, unlike some products, and It smooths my skin enough that I feel confident enough to wear it alone. I feel like my skin has a glow after use and I don't wake up with a big oily mess in the morning.

If you're looking for a great anti-aging moisturizer for all skin types...look no further!
