Dot & Dot Small Packing Organizer #Review #packingcubes

I could use all the organization help possible when we travel as a family.  There are four of us, and even though my children are older and have their own suitcases, there are times we are all in one big weekend getaway bag.  I have four of the small packing cubes.  Each member gets one to put their toiletries in when we share a weekend bag.  This way, no one can complain that someone took something out of the bag and didn’t put it back in there.  Each person packs what they need with me double-checking to make certain the necessities are included (I even check hubby’s bag because he is known to forget something).

The bigger packing cubes (which I do not have) would be perfect to put an outfit in for weekend travel.  Each person could have their own bag making packing and unpacking so simple.

Dot&Dot Small Packing Organizer Dot&Dot Small Packing OrganizerI have been brainstorming ways of how these packing cubes could be used when people are not traveling.  I am thinking of buying a set for my cousin.  She could put a change of clothes for her baby in each cube so it is easy to grab from the diaper bag.  It would be so easy to see the change of clothes and not have to dig.  You could also put dirty clothes in the cube so it wouldn’t mix with the clean clothes.  You do have to hand wash the cube and hang to dry so I wouldn’t put anything wet in there; it would get on other things.

 

I realized I can put my essential oils in the small cube.  It fits 10 across with 2 rows.  The only thing I need to do is add a piece of foam for the extra space, and I am ready to go!

This holds 20 bottles of doTERRA essential oils.  There is room to spare.

Purex Crystal Aromatherapy #Review

R1_1707_INSI_Crystals_AromatI am a Purex Insider.  I received the product to review.  All opinions are my own, and I will only recommend products to my readers that I would love to have in my own home.

I have been using essential oils for about a year now.  I have started doing extensive research on the benefits of each oil–starting with the ones I have and continuing to the ones I want.  I have used Wild Orange for the past 6 months to help soothe me when I have anxiety and when I need a boost to my energy.  I have also used certain blends for calming and relaxing effects.  I was excited to hear about Purex’s new product.

Purex has a new laundry enhancer; it is Purex Crystals Aromatherapy and comes in three scents–Energy, Well Being, and Serenity.  I had the pleasure of trying Energy.  The Energy crystals have a citrus scent which I love.  I love adding the crystals to my towels and washcloths; it eliminates the laundry odors.  The scent after taking a shower is amazing!  I also love adding this to our loads of clothes containing marching band practice clothes, the clothes I walk in, and play clothes.  The fresh laundry scent is amazing; it is not overwhelming at all.  It is a great in-wash scent booster.

Have you tried the new Purex Crystals Aromatherapy?  Let me know what you think.

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.
