AYL USB Charger/Sync Cable #Review #AYLAppleCetifiedLightningcable

One frustration at my house is that the USB cables to charge iPhones and iPods is not long enough.  We are always sitting by an outlet while they are charging–especially Martha and Tink.  A main complaint from Martha and Tink is that when they are in their bed they cannot get comfortable while their iPod is charging.  I understand the frustration.  The charger/sync cable that comes with iPods is not that long.

Along comes Accessorize Your Life USB charge/sync cable.  It is 6 feet long!  It truly is.  The amazement from Tink and Martha was funny.  They immediately tried to lay claim to it.  I told them I wanted to see it before anyone else took it; I have an older iPhone so it isn’t for my device.  Tink’s device needed charging so I let her use it first.

When I have bought chargers from places other than Apple, I have noticed that the device takes longer to charge, especially if I am in my car.  I was thinking this cable would be the same way.  It isn’t.  It charges just as fast as the original USB charger that came with the devices even in the car.  This is going to be great to have on road trips.  Imagine having a USB charge cable that can be plugged in the front of the car and reaches to the back seat.  It’s great!

I did not have any trouble syncing Apple devices to our computer using this cable either.  It performs like the original cable.  I love it!  I love having extra cables in the house.  It seems as if someone is always missing one.

The Accessorize Your Life USB charge/sync cable can be found on Amazon.  It is selling for $16.99 right now.  You can find it here.  This is not an affiliate link; I do not receive compensation in any way when you click the link or if you buy the cable.

The product shipped and arrived when the company said it would.  The packaging is excellent, and the cable was perfect.

#InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask #Review

I have some blog posts about how thick Tink’s hair is.  Super thick hair and so much of it.  Tink had long layers and her hair thinned out this summer.  The only problem is that is is super-thick now, and she wants to grow it out.  It takes forever to brush it out after a shower.  I usually have to help to make certain all the tangles are gone.

Tink washes her hair like usual and towel dries it like the directions on the hair mask state.  I apply the hair mask to make certain it gets throughout her hair and her scalp.  I did not brush out any of the tangles before I applied it.  I wanted to see how this would attack the mess of tangles.  I was not fond of the scent, but Tink loved it.  She kept it on for 15 minutes and rinsed it out.

I told Tink to start brushing out her hair, and I would finish it up.  She came to me a few minutes later with her hair completely brushed!  There was not a tangle in her hair, and it did not hurt to brush it!  This was huge!  She was able to brush her hair so quickly.

Once her hair dried, it did not have the frizziness that it usually has.  Her hair was so smooth and shiny.  Her hair was not as dry-looking as it usually is.  We love this hair mask!  Tink uses it once a month.

Insta Natural Argan Oil Hair Mask

 

Right now, this argan oil hair mask is sold for $17.95.  I will be purchasing this again.  I was concerned that this mask would not last long because of how much I have to use on Tink’s hair.  We have had several uses from this, and there is still some left in the tub.  You can visit Amazon here to purchase this product.  This is not an affiliate link; I do not receive any compensation if you click this link.

Art for Home — Fulcrum Gallery #Review

*I received an item from Fulcrum Gallery to review.  I was not compensated in any other way.  All opinions are my own.

I have been wanting a new piece of art to hang in my entryway.  You can see this area as soon as you walk in the door and if the front door is open.  I have looked at different places while I was out shopping.  I had no idea what I wanted so I thought there was no point in searching while on the internet.

I was contacted by Fulcrum Gallery to review a piece of their art.  You can search by style, subject, room, and artists.  You can narrow your search by size, shape, and color.  Once you pick out the piece you want to buy, you choose if you only want the art print or if you want it framed or on canvas.  You have three choices to choose from for framing: black frame, silver frame, or gold frame.  All the prices are on the page once you select the artwork you want. You can also customize the print; I am not certain about this feature as I did not customize the print I chose.

When I started out searching on the website, I was a little overwhelmed at first.  I believe this was due to me having absolutely no idea what I wanted.  Once I decided I wanted word art, it became easier.  I chose “Our Family Rules” by Marla Rae on canvas.

 

I received an email that my order was placed and another email notifying me that my art has shipped.  I also received the tracking information.  The communication from the company is great!

I admit I was nervous with getting a print on canvas shipped.  I was afraid something would happen to it.  The art was packaged well.  I had planned on taking a picture of the packaging, but my teen and tween couldn’t wait to open it.  Nothing was damaged, and the print was ready to hand on the wall as soon as it was out of the packaging.  I would not hesitate to order something else from them and have it framed.

  • Pro : many art prints to chose
  • Pro : different finishing options available that you may not have available if you go to a retail store to purchase art
  • Pro : reasonable prices and sales
  • Pro : excellent communication
  • Pro : everything is done in-house
  • Pro : sturdy framing

I cannot think of any cons about Fulcrum Gallery.  I absolutely love them!

This is the print I received from Fulcrum Gallery to review.

I hope you fall in love with Fulcrum Gallery and the different options available like I did.  Let me know if you visit Fulcrum and if you love them like I do.

#HealthyNow Colon Cleanse Detox Plus #Review

I have read and heard about many colon cleanses.  They scare me.  I can only imagine cramping, upset stomach, and gassiness.  I have always wanted to try a cleanse so I decided to jump on board when this review offer came.

 

#HealthyNow Colon Cleanse

#HealthyNow Colon Cleanse

The first thing I did was look at the ingredients because the company says the cleanse is “all natural.”  I can read the ingredients, and I recognize all the ingredients.  It is a short list compared to other cleanses I have looked at before.

The directions say to take one to two capsules in the morning and one to two capsules at bedtime with 8 ounces of water.  It is suggested to start with two capsules a day but never more than four a day.  I decided to start with two capsules–one in the morning and one at bedtime–a day since I have never done a cleanse before.  I was impressed with how I felt after I took them.  Like I said at the beginning of this post, I have always been afraid.  I did not have any discomfort.  I did increase my water intake as is suggested on the back of the bottle.  I will be doing a complete detox soon as my eating habits were not the greatest over summer break.

You can purchase HealthyNow Colon Cleanse Detox Plus on Amazon for $19.97.  Feel free to click the link to Amazon.  It is not an affiliate link; I do not receive compensation from Amazon or HealthyNow if you click on the link.

Gaffer Tape #Review and #Giveaway #GafferTape

I am always on the lookout for tape I can use around the house. Clear tape does not always seem to do the trick, and I do not like the sticky residue left behind by duct tape.

One of the claims of Gaffer Tape is that it does not leave behind sticky residue. I had to try this out for myself on various surfaces around my house. My family gave me crazy looks as I cut pieces of the tape and placed the tape on different surfaces in my house. I left the tape there for several days. It did not leave behind any residue. I love this! Most times, tapes leave behind that residue so you have to spend extra time cleaning the surface trying to remove it. I no longer have to worry about that with this tape.

My husband used the tape in the garage. I really don’t know what he used it for because I rarely enter his “man cave,” but he said he liked it.

Gaffer Tape sticks well to surfaces. I put some of it around a vitamin bottle and ran water over it for at least 30 seconds. The tape did not come off until I removed it; no water was underneath the tape.

#GafferTape review and giveaway on http://FinallyStayAtHomeMomma.com

We just finished using some tape to hold together a music stand so my daughter could practice her instrument for band. We had no idea the stand was broken, and the nearest place to get a stand is 30 minutes away. We will wait until this weekend to get a new one. For now, the tape is doing the job!

How would you like to win your own roll of Gaffer Tape to use in and around your home?  Enter my giveaway below.  If you don’t want to wait, you can visit the website and order it.

Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent #Review #GVP

Soap Nuts Liquid for HE washers and regular top loading washers

Soap Nuts Liquid for HE washers and regular top loading washers

I have heard of soap nuts.  They are from an Asian soapberry tree, and the nuts are harvested.  The nuts are then dried and saponin is extracted from them.  Saponin is a natural detergent and is non-toxic.

Green Virgin Products sells soap nuts and soap nut liquid.  I received the Soap Nuts Liquid in an 8-ounce bottle.  I was skeptical as it claims to last 120 loads in a high-efficiency washer.  I became even more skeptical when it says it contains the detergent and the fabric softener.  How can this little bottle clean my laundry and soften it at the same time using two pumps from the dispenser?

Tink decided she wanted to do laundry first.  She never volunteers for laundry but loves trying new products.  She started a load of laundry, and I asked her if she put in the Soap Nuts Liquid.  She said she did but added some of the other laundry detergent “just in case.”  Ummmmmm…I told her we needed to do laundry without the regular detergent so we could actually review it.  She laughed.

Tink did more laundry and only used Soap Nuts Liquid.  Martha did some laundry, and I did as well.  We liked how the clothes smelled clean without having any scent added to it.  The clothes were also soft and clean.  We were hoping it passed hubby’s test.  Hubby has sensitive skin and new detergents and fabric softeners can cause him to itch.  It passed hubby’s test.  We didn’t even tell him we switched.

We have been using Soap Nuts Liquid for three weeks.  It only takes two pumps from the dispenser to do a normal load of laundry.  I still have quite a bit of detergent left in the bottle.  I will continue to use it.

You can purchase Soap Nuts Liquid and Soap Nuts on Green Virgin’s website.  Green Virgin offers other eco-friendly and non-toxic products for yourself and your home.  Green Virgin offers an option to add a pre-spotter to the detergent.  I did not have the pre-spotter but if my children were younger, I would add it.

I am very impressed with this detergent and fabric softener.  My clothes have never felt so clean and soft.  I love knowing I am not adding things not needed to my laundry.  I love having a non-toxic laundry detergent.

Check out Green Virgin’s website.  You will be impressed!
