[Closed] - GIVEAWAY - Purely Products

Desktops have almost 21,000 germs per square inch, phones more than 25,000 per square inch (compared to only 49 per square inch on toilet seats).

When i first read that, I washed my hands. As I get older people have pointed out to me I am becoming more compulsive and a germaphobe. When I'm at school i constantly wait until someone else opens the door because I just don't want to touch the doorknob. There are many other things I do to avoid touching germ-infested objects. I now carry a bottle of sanitizer in my bag at all times for those moments things don't go my way.

I had read quite a bit about Purely Products and was super exited when offered a chance to review some of their products. Purely Products carries products to help promote a cleaner and healthier lifestyle. Purely Products also donates a significant percentage of all sales to the non-profit www.diaperlove.org to help children in need.

I received the Pocket Purifier in a cute pink. While not my favorite color, it sure has grown on me. Its amazing to think that the 4-watt UV light in this purifier eliminates 99.9% of germs that cause colds and flu, plue e-coli, salmonella, mold, fungus and MRSA (staph). It is very lightweight and small, fits in my bag when I'm on the go ans has a handy strap. The purifier also has a flashlight setting which is great to have on your nightstand.
"Lightweight and convenient, Pocket Purifier sanitizes surfaces and objects with the same UV-C light that sterilizes surgical instruments. Ultraviolet light and nanotechnology eliminate 99.9% of germs that cause colds and flu, plus e-coli, salmonella, mold, fungus and MRSA (staph). At home, at work, in public, for all high-touch surfaces, Pocket Purifier is the most environmentally responsible way to kill germs without chemicals - hands-down."
It takes a mere 10-15 seconds of exposure to kill germs. I went crazy disinfecting everything I owned when I first got it. About a week ago I was at school and pulled it out to disinfect the book i was reading while I read it! I constantly use it on doorknobs in my house, on my bed and pillow, my keyboard, my webcam and especially on both my cellphones and MP3. My XBOX 360 controllers seem to get it everyday, as I have friends who come play often and they refuse to wear gloves like I told them to! lol.

I also received the Pet CFL bulb. I have 3 dogs, 1 of which stays inside permanently. The Pet CFL bulb is a energy efficient compact florescent lightbulb that removes pet dander, cigarette smoke, pollen, odors, fumes, dust and airborne contaminants with built in ionizers. The light from the bulb is brighter than the one we already had, so that was no problem. 

We tested it out downstairs by the patio door first. Reason being is because my father is a smoker and everyone is the house detests the smell! We noticed it seemed to rid the dining room of the smell he leaves lingering after coming back inside the house. As for the smell of dog in my sister bedroom, where the dog sleeps, is virtually gone.

I am very impressed with these products. The pocket purifier, is by far, something that has made my life as a germaphobe better :) Thanks to Purely Products for the opportunity to review these great products! I have already recommended them to some co-workers :) They have been gracious enough to provide a lucky reader of mine the same products!

Review - Pocket Shot

Pocket Shot, a drink on the go. A fun new product which are pouches filled with 50ml of Whiskey, Rum, Spiced Rum, Brandy, Vodka, Gin and Tequila. They are like a modern day falsk. More about the company from their website:
"Pocket Shot is an innovative new concept that provides the consumer with “grab and go” convenient and user-friendly package for alcoholic beverages. Packaged with a distinctive shape to resemble a miniature bottle complete with bottleneck for easy pouring and a high quality sheen with bright graphics, Pocket Shot is truly the first new concept in alcohol packaging to hit shelves in North America.

Each Pocket Shot comes in a 50 ml single serve flexible stand-up pouch containing 80 proof varietals including:
  • Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Aged Four Years
  • Imported Caribbean Gold Rum
  • Premium, Triple Distilled Vodka
  • London Dry Gin
  • Especial Gold Tequila Imported from Mexico"

To review, I received the Vodka Pocket Shot. It is "clean, crisp and smooth premium vodka that is triple distilled and filtered three times using the finest American grains and purest water with no additives. This clear vodka can be mixed, iced down or enjoyed straight up". I like my vodka straight up and thats how I drank it. It is 50ml single serving and is 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof). The packaging is great, fits in your pocket for when your on the go. The taste was very smooth and I'm sure would go great in a mixed drink.

Overall, I think Pocket Shots is a great product. To be able to discreetly carry it in your purse, back pocket, or anywhere is great. Despite being in single-serving pouches, the taste is not overlooked. A big thanks to Pocket Shots for the opportunity to review their product which I enjoyed :) I hope to see them widely available in the near future! At $14.99 for a 12pk., I think they will make a great gift for many of my friends. :)

Drink Responsibly!

Review - dB Logic Earphones

With MP3s becoming more and more common with younger kids, parents are looking to protect them from harming their hearing. I am amazed that my 8 year old brother had been asking for an MP3 player since he was 4. So I bought him one a year ago and it came with standard earphones. At the highest setting they surprisingly hurt me, and I have abused my hearing quite a bit in my 22 years. Riding in the car with s full blown out stereo system (amplifier, bass, etc) that you can feel blocks away is just one of the ways I've abused my hearing. I don't want want my little brother harming his hearing at such a young age.

I received the dB Logic earphones to review. They are in-ear earphones, which I prefer over the traditional ones. They come in 7 fun colors, i got silver. These in-ear earphones have a silicone tip that comfortably goes into your ear and seals out noise very well, you don't have to worry about them falling out. They came with interchangeable silicone tips in varying sizes. More info:
"Unlike traditional ear buds, our Earphones include silicone rubber tips that route sound directly into your ear canal. In addition to directing the sound, the tips provide a better seal, decreasing the amount of ambient noise by as much as 26 decibels. This means significantly greater sound quality when compared to ear-buds.  You also don’t have to turn the music up as loud to get the same sense of immersion."
I tried these out with my MP3 at the highest volume and it was no not as loud as my regular earphones BUT that is because the earphones have SPL2 technology. The sound emitted from these earphones comes off a lot better and more crisp. At the highest volume the sound is less distorted as well. 
"SPL2 stands for “Sound Pressure Level Limiting,” the patent-pending technology from dB Logic that manipulates sound waves and selectively lowers the volume while still keeping the shape of the sound wave curve."
dB Logic's earphones are great. I love them, I gave to my brother and explained to him that they are much better for him and now he is enjoying them. I'm glad I no longer have no worry about that. These earphones retail for $29 and are well-worth it. Thanks to dB Logic for the opportunity to review them! These will definitely make a great stocking stuffer this Holiday season!

[Closed] - GIVEAWAY - Snapware Food Canisters

Oh how I love love love to have everything organized. I recently got to try out some products from Snapware, which I had been seeing so many people rave about! The only place organization was lacking was definitely in the kitchen. Since we usually try to stock up on things when they are free - cheap with coupon, it wouldn't be rare to find half-empty boxes taking up space in the pantry.

I was sent Snapware's 4pc Rectangular Airtight Food Storage Container Set. The Glasslock set are rectangular airtight food storage containers that are BPA-free, airtight and microwave safe. Its a very nice set to have around, we use it to store leftovers. Its great that its microwave-safe, we usually take place in the fridge and it goes straight into the microwave to heat up for a quick meal.
I was also sent the 10pc. Airtight Canister set. The set came with 5 canisters and their lids and a bonus set of measuring cups. These were, by far, my favorite! We have a lot of cereal that gets thrown away due to ants being able to completely infest the bags. When we open a bag, we automatically put in in the Snapware's airtight canister with no worries. We also use some for storing Pop-Tarts, Popcorn Bags, loose candy, Cheeze-Its, granola bars and more. Our pantry looks great now.

The Canister set is also BPA-free, airtight and has a fun flip-top lid that is easy for even my 4 year old sister to open. Both sets are easy to clean up and are very durable. The Container set retails for $14.99 and the Container set $24.99. Snapware has an array of great storage options for food, household, crafts and more. A big thanks to Snapware for the opportunity to review these much-needed and great storage sets.

Feed your dog, for FREE!

Having a dog, to me, is like having a child. You have to feed them, make sure they have a roof over their head, keep them warm, bath them, pamper them once in a while and love them. When i started couponing I had no idea I would be able to get FREE DOG FOOD. I was amazed at my first pet-haul. I have 3 adorable furry babies that hold a very dear place in my heart, and being a College student paying my own way, Its a blessing to be able to get free dog food for them.

I've been able to build and keep a pretty well stocked Dog-Pantry. In it i have a whole bunch of Cesars Chewy Treats, Purina One 6oz. Bags, both of which I got for free at Target with coupons. I also have a whole bunch of treats which I have gotten at clearance price or cheap with coupons. And, from the video below, you can see how one of my babies absolutely loves those Cesar's Chewy Treats!
video
A lot of my friends ask how I can feed my dogs when I have so much expenses with college, and I let them in on it. I have shared coupons and deals with them as well, and they pass it on to their friends and so on.

Do you guys want to start a Dog Pantry? To help you out, come by Monday 11/01, I will be giving away 20 $2/1 Purina coupons which you can use to buy (20) Purina One 6oz. bags of dry dog food for FREE! Start it off!

Review - Beauty Stop Online: Hot Tools Ceramic Titanium Curling Iron

I recently has the privilege to work with Beauty Stop Online and review their Hot Tools 1-1/2" Ceramic Titanium Hair Curling Iron. This curling iron has a barrel size of 1 1/2 but also comes in 3/4", 1 3/4" and 2". More info on the curler from the website:
"Hot Tools 1-1/2" Ceramic Titanium Hair Curling Iron is a professional hair curling iron with a powerful patented heating system that keeps it hot, so stylists may work continuously and quickly while still achieving consistent curling results. It features the Ceramic and Titanium technology. Ceramic produces gentle far infrared heat, working from the inside out to seal the cuticle, locking in natural moisture, improving shine, eliminating frizz and styling hair without damage. It also inhibits bacteria and odor buildup. Titanium, a high-tech super hard element, provides lightweight strength & corrosion resistance for snag-free styling and even heat distribution. This hair curling iron is excellent for styles of any length."
When i received it I immediately had to have a test run. I turned it on and left my vanity room for about 1 min, came back to find it was at its set temperature of 430° F by my return. My hair at the time had only Hana ShineShield which is a heat styling serum. I have a full head of hair, dyed and bleached, mid-back length, thick and naturally wavy and straight with some occasional curls. Already hot, I took a couple minutes to part my hair, the top in 5 parts and bottom in 4. I proceeded to curl my hair by leaving each sectioned part about 20 seconds on the extremely hot barrel. It was intentionally a test run but my hair was styled as if I were leaving to a party. The test  run took about a mere 15 minutes to do and it turned out great.

I have, since then, used the curler quite a bit. I have also used it on my baby sister's and my friend's hair. All of them loved the result and the fact that it took such a short time to achieve the curls. I love that there is an extra long rubber tip, it has helped in preventing me to burn myself on several occasions. The only thing I wish were different is the thumb grip. Currently, only the bottom of the thumb grip is covered with rubber, I wish it were all covered. I have accidentally burned my cheek a handful of times because of it. 
Ceramic produces gentle far infrared heat, working from the inside out to seal the cuticle, locking in natural moisture, improving shine, eliminating frizz and styling hair without damage
I absolutely love the style and purple color of the Hot Tool's curler. Without using any products in my hair, after I curl it, they die down in about an hour. If i use hair spray, the curls stay for a good day. I have noticed that after the curls die down, my hair is almost pin straight and looks healthier than I've even seen it before. So its safe to say that this curler, also works as a straightener for me! I no longer have frizz when i curl my hair, I would get it with other curlers I've had.

I have used it for over 2 weeks now and can say that I would have no problem recommending it to friends, which I have already done :) This curler retails for $34.95 - $39.99 (depending on barrel size) on Beauty Stop Online. The website sells all kinds of beauty products like brand name curlers, straighteners, skin, hair and nail care, accessories and more at great prices. I love the large array of products and ease of searching. Shipping was extremely fast as well.  A big thanks to John, from Beauty Stop Online, for the opportunity to review the product and their great store! :) I have so many favorites, I hope you check out their great selection, including:

Decorating takes time, too much time!

I'm so glad we finally put up 80% of the Halloween decorations on Saturday. But, with all this thinking about decorating outside, it made me wonder why we haven't really decorated inside. We moved in to this new house about a year ago and have yet to paint or make it home-y. We don't even have a coffee table but I know we would all agree on a glass round coffee table

We also have linoleum on the Kitchen floor so some of or bar stools need chair leg caps to not mess it up. Our kitchen is about the only place in the house that has been semi-decorated. The only place that really needs it is the huge living room. We have a couple of pictures, drapes on the windows, area rug, sofa and love seat. But that only covers 20% of the huge odd living room. We need a lot more furniture in there, including a sleeper chair for those who don't fit in the guest room.

Hopefully this upcoming year we'll be able to take care of that, and then its time to tackle the dirt backyard. So much work, so little time.

Review - CSN Stores

As mentioned in a previous post, CSN has contacted me once again to review their great array of stores as a CSN Preferred Webmaster. I previously had the privilege to work with them and reviewed the Coolaroo Dog Bed for my dog. To date, the bed has been great, sturdy and provides my dog with great nap times. As the weather gets colder, I will move the bed inside, as it is versatile.

This time I chose to review a couple of products, including: SilverStone Simply Baking Nonstick Carbon Steel 12 Cup Mini Muffin Pan, Proctor-Silex Sandwich Maker, Pucca Bedding Kiss Me Standard Pillowcase and Preserve Everyday Tableware Cup in Apple Green (4pk.).

Shipping was fast as usual and the product chosen were great. The Proctor-Silex Sandwich maker was first on our list, as we had one prior to our move a year ago but had to throw out old one away. To be able to make a quick sandwich it such a short time is great! Well built and heats up very fast. The Preseve Cups are great. They are a fun bright green color and very sturdy. 

I absolutely adore the SilverStone Simply Baking Nonstick Carbon Steel 12 Cup Mini Muffin Pan. I have made several batches of mini cupcakes since receiving the pan and they were delicious. The only complaint I have is with the Pucca Pillocase. The website has a picture up but the pillowcase they mentioned is behind two others, so it makes it seem like the pillowcases you're getting are the ones that are showcased in the front. I was very upset when I received it.

Overall, I'm content with the items I got the chance to review, not counting the Pucca pillowcases. A big thanks to CSN for the opportunity to review their more than 200+ stores once again.
