Get Sleek and Shiny Locks with the ISA Professional Straightening Iron: A Product Review

ISAI have very long curly/wavy hair. It has plagued me all of my life. I have been using straight irons since I was about 13 and for as long as I can remember — it has always taken me the better part of an hour to really straighten my hair to my liking where everything is flat and there are no ‘floofy’ or frizzy parts. I am a bit of perfectionist. A lot of straighteners I have tried in the past just were not up to my standards because I really hate having to go over the same section of hair over and over again to get the results I want. So, when I was offered the opportunity to try out the ISA Professional Flat Iron – I was elated to try something different. It is not like I had anything to lose.

I really like this straightener. It is very simple to use – unlike most straighteners I have used in the past, this one does not have an option to adjust the heat – you just plug it in and flip the switch on and allow it to heat up. From what I gather – the straightener automatically adjusts to your hair and straightens it without burning or damaging.

If I let my hair dry naturally and then straighten – the Isa straightener will leave hair shiny, soft and straight after just a pass or two. There is no need to have to continuously go over the hair again and again. The device is easy to hold and fortunately the outside of the straightener stays pretty cool so you don’t have to worry about picking it up and burning yourself.

In the spirit of leaving an unbiased review – here are the reasons why I gave this product four stars rather than five. Firstly, I

really wish that there was a way to adjust the temperature of the ceramic plate – I think having the ability to increase the heat a bit would cut down on the amount of time needed to straighten the hair. I have found personally that my hair straightens better under high heat – but that’s just me.

The second reason is the width of the device it is only about an inch or so wide and while it does a great job straightening the hair.. I really wish it could handle bigger sections of hair at one time.

Other than that – I find no fault with this product. It is an excellent styling tool. Definitely lives up to it’s claims and expectations – especially considering it comes with a 2 year warranty. I have enjoyed using it and I would most certainly recommend it to others.

This is just one product in the ISA professional line – they have a lot of cool products and I encourage you to check them out on Amazon. If you are interested in the ISA Professional Straightener that I have you can check out their product page to get more information

Lush and Luxurious! What We Thought of the MicroSuede Furniture Slipcover from FinalGrab

cI have a one year old who co-sleeps with me because she has night terrors – so unfortunately – my husband opts to sleep in the living room to give us more space. I love him for it. A few months ago we went and purchased a lovely new futon to replace the old tattered love seat that we had in the living room. It is about as long as a couch and has a thick beige fabric covered mattress and has wooden arm rests. Looks great in our living room. The only issue is – the thing is super hard to clean – if anything gets on it it means having to unzip the massive mattress encasing and having to wash it… and we live in an apartment complex with community laundry facilities… and I don’t trust their machines not to ruin things – so, needless to say I have been looking for a cover for the futon since we got it – and when I was offered the opportunity to try out the Quilted MicroSuede furniture cover from FinalGrab I couldn;t have been more elated.

I ordered mine in the sofa size and in the lovely red color they offer. It’s more of a deep crimson/red wine color – but it’s gorgeous nevertheless. The product was super easy to unpack and put on the futon. Y12047474_10207832996128427_835982008_nou simply unfold it and drape accordingly. Part of the cover will hang over the top behind the couch and will hang on the bottom just below the cushion (maybe a little lower dependent on your individual piece of furniture.) Then you just adjust the cover to match up the arm rests on the fabric to the ones on the furniture and you are good to go. As you can see from my 12030955_10207832996088426_246906848_npictures, my arm rests are wood so I just draped the cover over them – and honestly it looks great. There is an area on the left corner of the top and the right corner that is not covered (maybe 2″) but it’s even and it looks like it is supposed to fit that way.

The Microsuede was a lovely choice of fabric for this furniture cover. It is super plush and very very soft. My husband sleeps on it every night and says that it makes the futon more bearable to sleep on. Plus – this is much easier to wash than trying to wash or steam the futon cover.
I really love this product and will likely be ordering several more to cover the other chairs in my home. It’s an amazing quality furniture cover – soft, durable and luxurious – plus it comes in so many colors so you’re bound to find one you like. I definitely recommend it.

If you would like to see the different color and size variations – I encourage you to check out their Amazon page! These slipcovers are very affordable at under $26 and make an excellent and classy addition to any decor.

Why We Will Never Floss Again – The Pyle Cordless Water Pick

pik1I hate flossing. I HATE it. I have crowded teeth and a small jaw and conventional flossing is time consuming and uncomfortable for me. So, when I was offered the opportunity to test out the Pyle Cordless and Portable Water Pick I was over the moon.

The whole unit is super compact. It folds up into itself and can literally be stored in a medicine cabinet or easily taken on the go and stashed away in a pocket book, suitcase, briefcase, gymbag, etc. Anywhere you go – this device can go to. The battery is rechargeable and comes with it’s own charger. Once charged – you can use the product many times before it needs to be charged again.

The device basically uses the power of water pressure to pressure wash your teeth – like flossing – but with water and certainly less time consuming. There are two settings – normal and soft. If you have sensitive gums I recommend the soft setting – at least for the first few uses until you get used to the pressure. I tried the normal setting the first go ’round and pik3had some bleeding but no more than is normally associated with flossing and crowded teeth.

The nozzle and water pressure really allow you to reach every part of your mouth and to blast away plaque and and any additional gunk left behind that your toothbrush doesn’t get. My mouth feels AMAZING after I use it and I have incorporated it into my daily dental hygiene routine.

pik2This is definitely a dental accessory that is worth the effort to have and use. It’s very user friendly, easy to set up, charge and utilize. Mine sits right on my bathroom counter. It takes up very little space and is super convenient. Check out the video for more insights on this product and a demonstration of use!

I really love this product and how effective it is! I would definitely recommend it. If you are interested in checking it out – we encourage you to visit the product page on Amazon for more info!

Our Experience with the Chef Essential Classic 23-Piece Kitchen Utensil Set! A Must Have Set for Any Kitchen!

I have been looking for an inclusive MATCHING kitchen utensil set for some time now. I had lots of utensils – most most of them were hand me downs from friends and relatives – so a lot of them were old and stained and falling apart. I really wanted a set that looked great in my kitchen and so when I was offered the opportunity to try out the Chef Essentials Classic 23-Piece Kitchen Utensil Set – I was over the moon and couldn’t wait for it to arrive.

These utensils are high quality. They are all made of durable, heavy duty stainless steel and have sturdy uniform black and silver handles. You can easily tell they belong to a set. This utensil set really has EVERYTHING that you could possible need in the kitchen. It contains several types of spatulas in various sizes, several spoons and ladles, some slatted, some whole. It has tongs, a bottle opener, a vegetable peeler, a whisk, several sizes of measuring spoons and cups and even a pizza cutter. Like I said – if you need it in the kitchen – it’s in this set.

The utensils are easy to work with – they do not bend or break easily and are easy to clean. You can safely stick them in the dishwasher with no issues. I also really liked that they have the tiny cutouts in the end of the handle so you can actually hang them on the wall. I store most of mine in a large round open-top utensil holder – but just for aesthetic purposes I hung the measuring cups and a few of the larger spatulas on the wall. They are very durable but pretty lightweight considering and they hang easily on a finishing nail with no problems.

I love love love this utensil set. It looks great in my kitchen and I was finally able to throw away all of those odds and ends utensils – which made me extremely happy. I would definitely recommend this product. They look great and function phenomenally. Definitely happy to have this in my kitchen. My only comment is I wish they would come out with more sets in varying colors! That would be a lot of fun!


If you would like to find out more about this product – I definitely encourage you to check out their product page on Amazon! If you purchase it – or have ordered this in the past – I would love to hear about your experience with the product as well! Feel free to comment on this post – I love hearing from my readers!

My Experience with the Uberve 2-in-1 Artist Set Acrylic Paint and Brushes

paint3I love having art products around the house. I am very much into DIY crafts and love being artistic. I don’t paint in the traditional sense but I do often require paintbrushes and acrylic paints for projects that I make that require a bit of color here and there or simply for decorating pre-fab products like wooden mirrors or the occasional birdhouse. The set of brushes I had were old, stubby and the bristles were in horrible condition – so when I was offered the opportunity to try out the Uberve 2-in-1 artist set – I was stoked. It looked like it was everything I really needed for my painting kit.

The product comes with 15 long handled wooden paint brushes with no-shed synthetic hair bristles. The brush heads are coated in some sort of hardened preserving liquid when you get them. I think it keeps them from fraying, shedding or becoming dry rotted before they are used. A bit of warm water loosens and softens the bristles easily so that you can use them. The brushes have nice long handles so you don’t have to struggle to hold them and like I said there are paint215 of them ranging in size from large to very small – so you will no doubt have the perfect brush regardless of the project you need it for. The brushes come in a lovely black carrying case – each with it’s own sheath pocket. The brushes stay inside their assigned pocket and to not just roll around in the case. This also prevents them from sliding and getting the bristles caught in the zipper. The case is durable and light weight but very protective. It can easily be slipped inside a tote or backpack for easy travel.

As far as the paints are concerned there are twelve different colors in this particular set of acrylics. All primary and neutral colors are included – if there is a color you are missing you may have to do a bit of blending to get a the shade you want – but that’s paint1half the fun. Each color comes in a sturdy tube. They are individually sealed. Tubes are opened by puncturing the seal with the point in the end of the paint cap. The paint is easy to squeeze from the tube – I recommend doing so a little at a time so that you do not waste what you don’t need. The colors are bright, vivid and creamy and are easily spread by the paint brushes provided.

I have really enjoyed my experience with this product – definitely a great set for an aspiring painter who is starting out. The paint quality is fantastic and the brushes are easy to handle and leave lovely brush strokes. I would definitely recommend. Check out the video to see this product in action.

I really encourage you to check out this product if this is something you have an interest in. If you have used it or decide to purchase we really would love to know what you thought about it – so please do not hesitate to comment with your thoughts and experiences!

Why We’re Sold On Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C Serum

100_3569Aloha to all my lovely readers. I come to you today with yet another AMAZING skin care product for you all to try! You guys know I am a huge fan of simple and effective products which is why I am sharing Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C Anti-Aging Moisturizing Serum. This stuff is the cat’s meow. When I first received the invitation to try a sample of this product in exchange for my honest review, I thought  ‘ugh, another serum’. Seriously – retinol and vitamin c serums are all over the market right now. I wasn’t sure that this product would be any other than the rest I have tried however, I have a rule about not making any assumptions before I try a product. So I ordered it…. and I’m so glad I did.

What’s This Product All About?

Well, according to the brand information and packaging this nutrient and anti-oxidant rich serum is said to…

“- Smooths and evens out skin texture
– Speeds turnover of skin cells
– Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
– Protects your skin from environmental damage
– Diminishes brown spots
– Minimizes and unclogs pores
– Gentle enough for everyday use”

**Claims come directly from Product Information**

Basically Trilane is supposed to help fight signs of aging – while helping to contour your skin, focusing on smoothing your skin and balancing your complexion to give you a nice youthful glow. Sounds Great Right? That’s because it is.

The Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C serum comes in a really nice frosted glass bottle. I love that. I can put it on my dresser amongst my pretty trinkets and perfumes and it looks right at home. The serum is ready to use right out of the bottle and has a really awesome push nozzle which makes it super easy to dispense.

My Experience With Trilane

So, like I said – the pump nozzle makes it super easy to dispense just the right amount. A little of this serum goes a long way. It has some awesome moisturizing agents in it – so I definitely recommend not going overboard – especially if you have oily or combination skin – it might cause breakouts.

When using this product – I started with a clean face. I applied this serum at night after washing my face right after a shower. In theory you could probably use this under your makeup during the day… but your skin does a lot of work at night healing itself and regenerating skin cells and such. Sleeping with this serum on your face without all of the cosmetics in the way to interfere really lets the goodness of this serum soak into your face. But alas, I digress. This is just my opinion.100_3570

At any rate. In my personal experience, I find that serums are best applied with the hands. I dispense one or two pumps directly into my palm, rub my hands together a few times and massage into my face in circular motions. While I do put the serum on my entire face, I tend to focus on my dry and problem areas.

The Verdict:

I have been using this product for about a month and I am positive that this is the best retinol serum i have ever had the pleasure of using. Not only is application super simple- the product is EFFECTIVE. I have noticed some pretty huge changes in my skin. It’s softer for one – but it is also firmer and more supple in all the right places. My skin tone, which is usually a bit uneven and blotchy is more even and balanced. I am definitely seeing less redness and irritation. My face feels amazingly smooth and I am experiencing a lot less flaking and dryness in my t-zone. This serum is super light weight and is not heavy, cakey or oily on my skin. Once it dries – there is no stickiness or tackiness – you can’t even tell it’s there. My skin feels so much healthier.. and that is a huge deal! That being said – I definitely recommend this product. It does what it claims to you.


If you are interested in trying Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C Anti Aging Moisturizer, the company has been generous enough to give our readers a special deal on their product. If you order this awesome product through their AMAZON PAGE you will receive a whopping 20% off your price when you use the promo code SAVERETC !! So remember – sharing is caring!

Get Your Glow on With Adovia’s Dead Sea Mud Mask


You guys know I am a huge fan of skin products. I have problem combination skin (my readers know this all too well) so anytime I find an amazing product that I think will help people I like to take the time to share it. Recently, i was offered the opportunity to try out Adovia’s Purifying Dead Sea Mud Mask. The verdict is in… I LOVE IT.

Honestly, I can tel you – I have never really been a huge fan of masks of any sort. I find them tedious, sticky and time consuming. I’m a new mommy – so anything I include in my beauty regimen has to be quick, easy and effective. This mask oddly enough meets my standards and has been far more effective than I ever would have imagined.

The product comes in an attractive, easy-to-squeeze tube. The ‘mud’ is the consistency of a thick paste and comes out of the tube slowly – which I think is awesome because it prevents you from getting more than you need. I would rather get too little and be able to get more if I need it than get to much and feel like the product is wasted.

At any rate, this product is full of awesome good-for-you components that really help give your skin an healthy dose of va-va-voom! The product ingredient list includes Dead Sea black mud, beeswax, jojoba oil, evening primrose oil and olive oil. All of these things are wonderful on their own of course – but this product puts them all together to give your skin a super boost of cleansing, moisture and nutrients!

The product claims that it boosts cell renewal and tightens pores while also pulling unwanted toxins out of your skins as it dries. It is also supposed to soothe skin and improve elasticity.

My Experience with This Product 

100_3389After showering and cleansing my face, I apply a thin layer of Adovia’s Purifying Dead Sea Mud Mask to my face, making sure I cover everything from my forehead to my upper neck. Obviously – you should stay away from your eyes, no need to elaborate on that. Once I applied the product I let it dry completely on my skin. Typically this takes about 15-20 minutes. When I use it – I will put it on and then go about my evening chores – cleaning the 100_3390kitchen, doing laundry etc. No need to worry about mess – this product is not runny nor does it drip. During my personal use, I have noticed that you can feel the mask drying and tightening on your skin. No worries – this just means it’s working! Once  the product to dries thoroughly, I simply use a wash cloth and warm water to rinse away the mask.

The Verdict

I have been using this product once a week for several weeks now and I can definitely say it is extremely effective. Immediately after rinsing away the mask my skin feels super-smooth and refreshed. My pores even feel tighter. I personally apply face moisturizer on right after to lock in some extra moisture. I only use once a week because I have issues with dryness, however this product is super gentle and has a lot of great moisture infusing oils in it so it hasn’t caused me any issues in that department. Since I have added the Adovia Deep Sea Mud Mask to my routine in addition to my regular cleansing and moisturizing – my face feels so much cleaner and the large pores around my nose seem to shrink and become less noticeable with each use. It really gives my face that light, dewy glow that we all chase after.

I definitely recommend this product to anyone who really wants to give their skin some extra special attention, especially if you are looking for a simple, user-friendly product that is super gentle on skin. This product has definitely made an impact on the health and appearance of my skin and for that I couldn’t be more thankful. I used the product as directed on the package and have not experienced any negative skin reactions or side effects.

If you are interested in learning out more about this product – definitely head on over to their Amazon Product Page – this product is getting great reviews!

Awesome Multi-Functional Car Trashcan by Mas27

100_3395I am a new mommy and constantly on the go… there are times I feel like I live in my car. I do my best to keep it trash and clutter free.. but more often than not I forget to throw things away because I am so busy. My car is a dysfunctional unorganized mess. I admit it. Is there a self help group for people with messy cars? Oh, well – I digress.

At any rate – because of my issues with trash around my car.. and the fact that I am super unorganized. I am always browsing around online looking for nifty gadgets, organizational tools and storage items… Not just for me – but things I think my readers would enjoy to. Recently, I was offered the opportunity to try the Car Trash Can made by Mas27.

So, I have to say – I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS PRODUCT. It is sold as a ‘car trash can’ and it certainly works for that. The container itself is large and roomy – BUT COMPACT. it has a velcro closure at the top and presses in to fold and becomes completely flat! The bag has convenient and super user-friendly straps that wrap around the headrest of a car seat, allowing the product to be placed conveniently in the back seat. I think this is an AMAZING placement – mostly because your kids can easily reach it to throw things away. No more sticky snack trash in the backseat!! (How awesome is that?!) Also the placement against the back of the seat also makes it simple for the person in the front seat to reach it (depending on what side of the car you attach it). I recommend getting one for both sides — they are just that awesome.

So, obviously like I said, Mas27 markets this as a car trash can… but OMG at the versatility of this product. It really can be used for so much more than a trash receptacle. The entire inside of the bag is lined, waterproof and leak-proof! Yes, this does make it great for protecting your car from leaking juice boxes, however … slap in an ice pack and you have a hanging lunchbox for a picnic or beach trip. This is exceptionally effective because the lining is so easy to clean. It also works as a resuseable thermal bag for toting groceries. On the other side of the spectrum – for college students – this hanging storage bin makes a great place to store s100_3396ome extra school supplies conveniently in your car.. in case you forget something you need.

I really cannot say enough about this bag and how much I have really enjoyed it. It is super effective and has a very streamlined look. My only criticism is that I wish it came in other colors… because then they would be ALL OVER MY HOUSE!.
