aVo Essentials Premium Lavender Essential Oil 4oz Review.

I received a 4.0z Bottle of Premium Lavender Essenial Oil for free to review.

Product Description:

Why Bulgarian Lavender Oil?
As one of the largest suppliers of Lavender in the world, Bulgaria's unique climate and soil conditions ensure that lavender grown here is of the finest quality. The percentage of air humidity, temperature and precipitation at the right time of the year all contribute to the cultivation of lavender that yields a very high percentage of premium lavender oil. When comparing Bulgarian Lavender to other Lavenders such as French, most people prefer the sweeter, smoother, and less camphoraceous aroma of Bulgarian Lavender Oil over the others. Our oil has an unrivaled fresh scent that blends beautifully with other essential oils.
Directions for Use:
 This product is highly concentrated. NEVER massage UNDILUTED oils, but rather always use a quality carrier oil. Add 5 drops of Lavender oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Use 1-2 drops for babies and the elderly.

Brusy Brush Bath Body Brush Review

I received this Bath Body Brush from Brusy Brush for free to review.

This is a nice 17 inch wooden scrub brush for bath and shower. The other side features nubby type massagers.

This brush can be used wet or dry and it had all natural boar bristles. The bristles are very sturdy with no fall out. The bristles dry fairly quickly as well.

I like to put my favorite shower gel on the bristles and brush all my troubles away in the shower. It cleanses and exfoliates nicely.

The brush has a cord at the end so that you can hang it up in your shower. I found the cord to be a little short,however you can untie it and add your own.

If you would like to purchase this brush for your bath or shower,please visit Brusy Brush at It retails for 14.95.

I also made a video review if you would like to watch may do so here.

Dream Dots Acne Treatment Patches Review

I received a package of Dream Dots Acne Treatment Patches for free to review.

This box contains 24 dots however you can purchase them in other quantities.

Each patch is on a tiny piece of paper that you detach and remove. You just apply them to clean dry skin where you have a blemish. Then leave them on for about 8-10 hours.

The reason why they are called Dream Dots is that they can be worn while you are sleeping. I had these on during the day and no one even noticed they were on my face.

Here is what my blemishes looked like after applying them.

This is what my blemishes looked like after 8-10 hours. They are still red but the Dream Dots cleared up a lot of the impurities and reduced the swelling.

This one everything was drawn out. It's still a little red but that's to be expected. Instructions state that you can wear them 3-4 days until it's fully healed.

This one wasn't a spot but cystic acne that was under the skin. The Dream Dot brought everything to the surface …

Blackwood Crossing eBook Review

*I received a copy of Blackwood Crossing by MK McClintock for free to review.
Blackwood Crossing is book two of The British Agents Historical Romantic Mysteries 
If you had to make a choice, would it be loyalty or love?

Torn between loyalty to her family and refusal to marry a laird she despises, Rhona Davidson accepts a dangerous proposal from a man she knows only as Blackwood.

Leaving behind a life of leisure, Charles Blackwood bravely serves his country with honor and the skill of a trained British agent. When his newest case returns him to the wild Highlands of Scotland, he is faced with a choice between killing a man and saving the only woman he has ever loved.

Charles and Rhona join their lives, only to discover that their choices will result in bloodshed, unless they can uncover a truth long buried, deep in the Highland soil.

My thoughts:
While this book has a G rating for Romance,I honestly thought there would be more romantic moments in the book between Charles and Rhona. It is ver…

Kuuk Silicone Ice Cube Tray (Twin Pack) Review

I received this twin pack of Kuuk Ice Cube Trays free to review.

These Ice Cube trays are FDA approved food grade silicone that are 100% BPA Free. Which is great since when it comes to my family,I'm all about safety.
Both trays make a total of 30 square ice cubes. They were easy to fill with no spillage and the ice cubes were easy to remove. So much better than my old plastic trays. Also since they are smaller in size they don't take up as much space in my freezer.

I can use these as candy molds as well since they are the perfect size. I am thinking of making Mine Craft Candy Pops for my youngest Daughter since everything is based off of block shapes so these trays would be perfect!  My husband wants to make iced coffee cubes for coffee.

These are also dishwasher safe as they are made of silicone so all you do is pop them in the top rack of your dishwasher for easy clean up.

If you would like to purchase this set of ice cube trays,please visit Kuuk's store on

Maxasorb B12 Serum Review

I received a 1.7 fl oz container of Maxasorb B12 serum free to review compliments of Vita Sciences and Brandbacker.

Maxasorb B12 Serum is made for people who have eczema, psoriasis,dry skin problems. Directions state to use 2 full pumps once a day or as needed for Adults and Children over 12. There are 30 doses per tube and this product is made in the USA.

While this product is labeled as a serum,it's actually a light pink cream. It has a light minty fragrance to it. I thought it smelled really nice. It absorbed quickly and wasn't sticky or greasy.

I used this on my hands and feet to relieve dryness and noticed results right away. It also softened and healed a large scab on my hand that you can see in this photo that's just about gone now.

I think this is a phenomenal product for healing skin and if you try it,I hope you like it as well. To find out more about this product or to make purchase,this retails for 19.95 and is sold through

Bloominous Website Review

I recently came across a beautifully designed website that provides a wide assortment of  DIY floral arrangement kits. I personally love DIY projects like this because they are fun and you get to be creative and decorative at the same time.

Bloominous launched in 2014 to give Brides an alternative to DIY Wedding Flowers. There are many different themes to choose from as well as a form to create your own theme.

What's nice about this site, is that all flowers ordered come pre-washed,trimmed,and dethorned. So it saves you time and money. Each kit even comes with step by step photo instructions so that your floral arrangements are ready in no time. Most kits take about 10 to 20 minutes to make. 
They also have their own collections that are very beautiful which saves even more time in picking out your arrangements. I think my favorite out of all of their collections would have to be their Party Pop Collection.  I just love all the different colored roses.

Pura D'or Shampoo and Conditioner Review

I received a 16 oz bottle of Pura D'or Argan Oil Premium Organic Shampoo Scalp and Dandruff Treatment. I also received a 16 oz bottle of Pura D'or Argan Oil Premium Organic Conditioner Lavender Vanilla.

The shampoo has a really strong scent as it has many ingredients such as patchouli,lavender,lemon,mint,clary sage,cedar wood and other ingredients.

I found it got rid of styling build up nicely and made my scalp feel clean and tingly.

The conditioner is so soothing and gentle. I love the combination of the lavender and vanilla scent. It helps control frizz and made my hair soft and manageable. I recommend using this in conjunction with the shampoo if you have dry hair as the shampoo felt a little drying to me.

If you would like to purchase these products or for more information,please visit their site at

Also here is a video review I made for Youtube if you would like to watch.

The Complete Guide To Screenwriting For Children Review

I received a copy of The Complete Guide To Screenwriting For Children for free to review.

Written by Motti Aviram, this book covers all the ins and outs of what it takes to make Children's Film and Television Show. I never realized all the time and effort that went into these shows for Children. They even talk about the psychological stand point.

This book is very thorough and covers many topics such as understanding children's cognitive abilities,children's humor,animation and the use of puppets in children's television shows among other topics in which children learn.

I thought fascinating on how much goes into this programming. The people in this line of work are truly commendable.

If you would like to obtain a copy of this book,it is available for purchase via Kindle format through

Ebook - Body Cognition: The Method Review

I received a free copy of Body Cognition:The Method by Josepha Michaeli to review.

Book Description:

Since the development of "Body Cognition" in the 1960s and 1970s, thousands of people have experienced it. However, when we ask: What is "Body Cognition", some of the answers are given in the negative form: this is not gymnastics in the usual sense; this is not a treatment for back pains only, and so on. How, then, can we define the "Body Cognition" method: education for a proper body movement? Training and preparing the body? Healthy gymnastics? These are titles which indicate several aspects of the method. The fundamental assumption of "Body Cognition" is that the right movement is beneficial to our physical and mental well-being and learning the right movement can considerably facilitate the solution of a long series of prevalent bodily problems. 
The present book constitutes an ID of the method: an attempt to explain extensively, present reason…

Kiss Me Organics Dandelion Root Tea Review


Radha Beauty Products Review

I received 3 Beauty Products from Radha Beauty to review.

I received a 4 oz bottle of Argan Oil,a 16 oz bottle of Fractionated Coconut Oil and their .5oz Intensive Youth Eye Gel.

This Argan Oil is truly unique from other Argan Oils that I've tried. For one,it has little to no odor to it,which is really nice. It also seems to be more thicker in consistency so I don't have to use as much vs other types that I have tried. I use this in my hair to reduce frizz when I wear my hair curly and with my hair straightener. It leaves my hair silky smooth and soft. I absolutely love it!

This Coconut Oil worked nicely for as a carrier oil for aromatherapy purposes. The only confusion I had with this product,is that it stated I could use it for cooking when it stated that it was for external use only.

I only use Fractionated Coconut Oils for soaps,candles and such anyway so I will use it for external uses as stated.

This eye gel was very mild and soothing. It's a clear aloe scented eye g…

Pembrook Wheelchair Bag Review

I received this Pembrook Wheelchair bag in exchange for my review.

Pembrook sells 4 different style bags. This is the bag I chose for my 71 year old Mother as I thought it would be the easiest for her to use. This is their stock photo to show how it looks on this style of wheel chair.

This is how the bag looks on her chair.

As you can see,the white stripe is reflective when light hits it. So this is a nice safety feature if you happen to be out with your chair at night.  That stripe makes it easy to label the bag also.  I wrote my Mom's name on the bag so that other residents  and nursing home staff would know that it belongs to her.

The bag clips on to the handle with two adjustable straps. The clips are a thick sturdy plastic that are similar to what they make children's stroller belts with.

The bag opens and closes easily. There are no zippers,just a thick velcro strip that keeps it shut. The inside is made similar to a satchel as it's one open space. There are no comp…
