The Mighty Mug Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by Mighty Mug for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

I do a lot on the computer both at home and at work so I usually have my drink sitting on my desk while I work, sometimes it gets knocked over and spills or simply drops onto the floor if it is in a spill proof container. I recently received a Mighty Mug for a review and now I don't have to worry about spills or my cup getting knocked off of my desk. Developed by a team of industrial designers and mechanical engineers, Mighty Mug, is the world's only Mug that grips to your desk when knocked into, but lifts naturally.





Before I received a mug for review I watched a video showing what The Mighty Mug could do, and I admit I was impressed but I was also skeptical about how well this would work. How can a mug set down on the table not be knocked over when hit but picked up like a regular cup without any hesitation? The Mighty Mug has a Smartgrip base which is shown above in the fourth photo (orange circle), when placed directly down onto the table this grips onto the table keeping the cup into place. Keep in mind the surface needs to be flat as with any suction cup base/item, I placed my Mighty Mug on my kitchen table and gave it a whack. The mug stayed in place was it gave me a jolt of excitement not seeing it fall over when hit with my hand, I even made my fiance come into the kitchen to have a look while I used my hand to try and knock over the mud. Knowing that some cups end up falling off the table because the table is moved I shook the kitchen table a bunch to see if that would make the mug fall and it still stayed in place, but lifted up without any issue when you pick it straight up off the table. The Might Mug is easy to clean, and works just as described my fiance will be taking this to work with him to the construction sites he works at.

PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner is going to receive a $30 Gift card to The Mighty Mug to pick out a mug of their own, they offer several different colors and sizes. Giveaway ends on Tuesday September 8th, 2015

BoxyCharm Subscription Box Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by BoxyCharm for the review & giveaway free of charge.****



I love subscription boxes because every month it is like opening a Christmas present. I was recently introduced to a sweet little makeup subscription box called BoxyCharm that has already has me quite impressed. I received the August BoxyCharm box and I loved everything that was included in it, generally with subscription boxes there is at least one to two thing that are 'Meh' or that I could do without so I was happy to get a box that had me 100% satisfied.





Before I tell you what was in the August box let me start by telling you that this subscription box costs $21 per month and comes with four to five full sized products. I was excited to see the small black box in my mail box marked 'BoxyCharm" because I couldn't wait to see what was in the box, once I opened the box I was greeted by an adorable post card and a assortment of products. The box came with the following products: Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette (Retail $39.95), MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner (Retail $35), Nios Shield Leave-in Conditioner (Retail $26), So Susan Statement Skin (Retail $20) and a Seta Eyeliner Brush (Retail $16) for a total retail of $136.95 all of that came inside of a subscription box that only cost $21 a month, I think that is a steal!





I personally love the Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette it is a great set of shades to do smokey eyes with which is my go to work look, the So Susan statement skin works like a highlighter and it has a very warm sun kissed look to it. The Gel eyeliner goes on smoothly and is long lasting, the brush is a perfect match for it and the Leave-in conditioner is also a sun blocker which I think is wonderful. I am over all very happy with this subscription box and put it at the top of my favorite subscriptions list. August BoxyCharm subscribers can enter for a chance to win an Exclusive BoxyCharm box worth $250 by following the instructions on the card that arrived with your box.

PRIZE ALERT:
Three lucky winners are going to receive an August BoxyCharm Box!

Please note that BoxyCharm currently only ships to the 48 contiguous US states. This does not include Hawaii or Alaska. However BoxyCharm has sent me the boxes to send to the winners so I will allow this to be open internationally.

Zotos Professional 180pro Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by Zotos Professional for the review free of charge.****



I used to dye my hair often and frequently which lead to my hair losing a lot of its natural shine and strength that it had before. Once I stopped dyeing it I started trying to find a good shampoo and conditioner that worked to help soften my hair and I've finally found a product that I am going to keep and toss the rest! I was sent a number of products from the 180pro product series my Zotos Professionals.






The 180pro series offers a number of products including Smooth + Soft Recovery, Intense Reconstruction, Moisture Repair, Treatments and Styling products. I received at least two products from each section of the line which can be viewed above, each section has its own bottle color. The first thing I've tried is the Smooth + Soft Recovery Discovery Kit which is featured in the round packaging above with three small bottles inside, this kit includes 180PRO Smooth + Soft Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner along with a Miracle Repair Damage Eliminator™ Leave-In Treatment.

So far I love the product and my hair does feel softer, I've notice it also helps De-tangle my hair more then the shampoo + conditioner I was using before, my brush glides right through my hair after washing it. All three of the products smell lovely, and they really do seem to replenish your hair you can almost feel your hair absorbing the product into it and letting it repair it. The three bottles included in the discovery kit are a lot smaller than their full sized versions but so far I've already used each five times and there is still plenty of product left in the bottle. I have medium length hair that goes down slightly below my collar bone, if you have longer hair you may use a little more product so it might not last as long however a little bit of the product goes a long ways. On that same note I will include that I haven't been able to test out the rest of the 180pro products since the first set I am using is lasting a little while but I will keep you updated on how the other products work as well so keep your eyes out for the updates! If you dye your hair or simply want softer hair and want to repair the damage from flat irons and curlers I suggest looking into these products which are all very affordable and run for under $10 each. You can purchase these products from Sally Beauty.

HydroFeet Insoles Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by Hydrofeet for the review & giveaway free of charge.****



When I am at work I walk a lot and sometimes the balls of my feet ache from all the walking, I've tried normal gel insoles in the past and they seemed to help for the first day or two before they started to fade away and feel like a normal shoe sole. I was recently sent a pair of Hydrofeet insoles to test out and review on my blog, they arrived quickly and were packaged well.





I am always skeptical about whether a product is going to work as the company says it will, we all know not all products are the best but when we find something that is it is a keeper! I mention this because the first thing I noticed about these insoles is that they seemed thinner than gel insoles you can find at the store, and they had a large area where the vegetable-based liquid glycerin sits. The first time I tried them on they felt odd, and even the pamphlet that  came with them has  FAQ section where someone asked how they feel when worn. The company's answer was that they feel weird, but it isn't a bad weird if they felt normal they would be just like any other insole out there.

Right away I could feel a difference in how I was walking, I had a lot more cushion in the arch of my foot which is right where I needed it. Every time I take a foot step I can feel the little pockets of vegetable-based liquid glycerin moving with my foot, and it is quite comfortable. My feet no longer are sore at the end of my work day and I've been talking about the insoles with all of my co-workers who are also on their feet all day long. These insoles are thin enough you can wear them in almost any type of shoe, they also include a little extra "fabric" on the end that are are able to trim if the insole is a little too big for your shoe and they include instructions on how to do so without ruining your insole. After a week and a half of use they still feel the same as the first day I slipped them into my shoe which is a plus because it shows they are still working as they should, and they are showing no signs of wear. I would have included a photo of them inside of my shoe but my shoes are also black and they blend in, plus I don't think anyone wants to see the inside of my shoes. These insoles are currently priced at $44.95 on their website and come in an assortment of sizes for men, women and even children.

 PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner is going to receive their own pair of insoles.

World Kitchen Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by World Kitchen for the review free of charge.****
To me cooking not only requires great ingredients but good tools that are dependable and work well. Finding the tools that work best for you can sometimes be a bummer because of the price tag, but World Kitchen has you covered by offering wonderful cooking tools at affordable prices.


 

 I recently received a small package which contained a Silicone Whisk, Medium Spatula and a Silicone spatula to try out. The whisk is pretty handy to have not only because some dishes taste better when whisked vs beaten with a fork, but because when it is time to be washed it can be washed easier then a metal spatula. If you apply a little pressure to the whisk it will smoosh essentially allowing all the food to slide right out and you don't have to worry about getting a sponge in there to get something you missed. Since it bends a bit it also helps you reach more places in your mixing bowl that a traditional whisk may have missed. The Silicone spatula is made from the same materials and it really helps you reach every inch of the bowl or dish you are mixing and pouring into the baking pan. I enjoyed all three products sent to me and look forward to using them more often! All three of these products can be purchased on their website for less than $10 each, the whisk is only $4.99 they also offer a number of other kitchen tools, gadgets and more.

Chewy Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by Chewy for the review free of charge.****


For all of the Star Wars fans out there, I am sorry but no this review doesn't involve Chewbacca however it does include a photo of my fur baby! A website called Chewy sells a number of products for cats and dogs, they sell everything from treats to beds and even pet meds all at great prices.





I was recently sent a bag of Dogswell Vitality Bars for dogs in a Chicken and Veggies flavor, along with a Catit Bench Scratcher with cat nip. As you can imagine my fur babies were excited when I opened the box and they realized what was in it was for them, although my pooch wasn't too happy about having to wait a minute to eat his treat so that I could snap a photo. The dog treats had a decent smell to them, if they were sitting out on a table not in their bag you could mistake them for actual beef jerky, the dogs highly enjoyed these treats and I am sure they would love another bag of them. The Catit Bench Scratcher is lovely because it doubles as a cat bed, the only issue I had with this is that the scratcher has small holes through it because it is made from cardboard. I have no issue with it being made from cardboard because it is meant to be scratched up by your cats, what I had an issue with is that the cat nip fell directly through the scratcher and onto the floor there was nothing to catch the nip and it ended up making a mess on my floor. Otherwise I am very happy with the product and as you can see from above my cat enjoys it as well. The Dogswell treats can be purchased for $12.74 and the Caitit Bench Scratcher can be bought for $7.99 on the Chewy website, head over and see what other meowsome products they have to offer your pets.

Smart Art Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by Smart Art for the review free of charge.****

 Are you artsy but at a loss about what to create sometimes? A monthly subscription box has you covered! They are called Smart Art and they send you one box a month that contains a art project for you to work on, along with instructions and of course the supplies. I received July's Smart Box which contained a "Create a Van Gogh Landscape" project which included a Pro Stroke Red Sable Brush Filbert size 6 (Retail $24.50), Creative Mark All Edge Media Cotton Canvas 8"x10" (Retail $12.58), Creative Mark Painter's Edge Painting Knife 2" (Retail $7.95), SOHO Urban Artists Colors 4 50ML Tubes in the colors Cadmium Red Deep, Cadmium Yellow, Ultamarine Blue, & Titanium White (Retail $22), along with a Chelsea Classical Studio Lavender Brush Cleaner bottle (Retail $15.95) and an instructions booklet showing you step by step how to create your master piece. (Total retail of $82.98 for all the included products).





This subscription box retails for $49.95 a month with free shipping, this may seem a little steep to some but you receive 8-11 full sized art supplies and get to create your own unique art piece. Every month a different artist is featured and inside of the booklet they go over a brief history on that months artist. The booklet also includes tips for your project, for example this box noted you should wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty because the oil paint does not come off easily. I personally think this box is great, I've always been interested in checking out a local art class or group but I usually never have the time to attend one and I can be shy at times so I am excited I can work on something beautiful at home on my own time without feeling like I am being judged. On that note I do have to say that I haven't gotten around to starting this art project my month has been pretty crazy so far but I am looking forward to diving head first into the project as soon as time allows. For the price of the box I do think this subscription is worth it even if you aren't the best at doing anything artsy this box allows you a chance to test things out, get dirty and create something beautiful. With their step by step instructions it makes it easy for even beginners to enjoy their monthly art project.

13Deals.com Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. The products mentioned below have been provided by 13Deals.com for the review & giveaway free of charge.****



Finding a good deal is always awesome because you are happy you were able to buy something you wanted and your wallet is happy you saved some cash! A website called 13 Deals offers a number of daily and weekly deals on a number of products which change weekly, some products are up to 79% retail price. I was recently able to do a review with 13 Deals and was able to pick out two deals from the site I wanted to test out, I choose the Remote controlled moon with light-up lunar phases and How to Train your Dragon 2 sheep launcher game by pressman.





Their customer service is fast and friendly just like their shipping speeds! The Moon was listed as $19.99 and the Game was listed for $8.99 which were both cheaper than I was able to find anywhere else. Both products are well made, fun to use and would make wonderful Christmas or birthday presents, my kids wanted to play the sheep launcher game as soon as I opened the box and we all had a blast even my two year old was able to play. The moon is also really neat and made me jealous I didn't have one when I was a kid! Looking through the 13Deals.com website I think they have great deals that are hard to beat and combined with the speedy shipping and friendly customer service this is a website I will be visiting for some of my Christmas Shopping. What deals do you see that you enjoy?





PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner is going to win a $20 Gift Card to 13Deals.com
