My Why….

It has taken me sometime to decide how I wanted my first blog to look. I have decided that I wanted to introduce myself, to those that don’t know me, and to explain a little bit about why I am using this blog to write my reviews.

First and foremost I am a mom. A single mom at that. My children are my world, and everything that I do is because of them and will only benefit them. As they have gotten older and decided that they don’t have to depend on me anymore, I was beginning to see that I had more and more down time that I needed to fill with something that I thought would be fun and still have some type of benefit to them individually or to us as a family. So I decided to look into product reviewing. It happens to be time consuming, yet fun at the same time.

I started to review with just one website, Tomoson. Then as time has gone on I have self taught and learned more and more and now it has become a part of normal everyday life. If you are new to reviewing, I highly recommend starting with Tomoson, they really have great tips and you are able to go at your own pace doing as little or as much as you would like to do as long as you are meeting the time frame to get the product and have your reviews in, you really have to be committed, and be able to have some sort of time management. If you don’t have that this is not something that you want to do.

When I am looking to try a new product I am always reading reviews, and checking for input from others that have used the item. So giving an honest and timely review has always been something that I am looking to do, and willing to do as well. I am not going to give a 5 start rating for a 2 star product and I will tell you exactly how it has benefited me, or even if it is worth your money.

In this blog you will find all my reviews, whether good or bad, it will be here. I only review items that I can use, my children can use, that can be used in the house or things that I can give away as gifts. Keep that in mind. If you cant use it don’t get it, even if it is free. Doing that will create a lot of clutter and make a mess lol.

I hope you find something here to be useful. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, I will answer or respond to any and all comments. Most of all have fun and enjoy. Happy reading.



Beanie Black Knit Ski Hat

I started by purchasing this hat for my fiance who not only owns more than one beanie hat, but has probably close to 50 +- a few. I received the package and was so happy to give it to him for his birthday. I wrapped it in a nice package and gave it to him. Well, the look on his face said it all. He loved it, until he placed it on his head and it was way to small for him to even keep on for more than a few minutes. It did not cover his head, much less his ears or forehead. This was purchased as a large.

My son had been away at college and he too decided that he wanted to try on this hat to see if it fit him, we had the same problem. It was to tight around his forehead and didnt fit around his ears either. This is a disappointment because he too really liked this beanie.

As of right now I have sent this in the mail to my 10 yr old nephew who will hopefully get so much joy out of it on the slopes when he is skiing. I will attach pictures once he receives and wears it. Please be sure to follow to see the update.

Everyone has a different size head and I really think these need to have the sizes where they will fit to on the website. If you are looking to purchase a very nice beanie or even to check out the ones that are available and can be purchased please take the time to head over to https://www.amazon.com/Beanie-Black-Knit-Ski-Hat/dp/B014VHIKRC/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&qid=1499534134&sr=8-17&keywords=beanie
This beanie will fit someone on your gift giving list.

Travel Professional Artist Paint Brush Set with Paint Tray Palette

Things have calmed down, and we are all back in to the flow of life. My daughter received these brushes and palette for a gift for Christmas. She is very artistic and loves to express her feelings through painting and drawing, shes very well for a beginner I must say. So this review will be written from her point of view to begin with and mine at the end.

Teenage Daughter- After painting my first picture, I really found that there is a brush for everything and every detail in this case. Its nice to be able to have them all in one case and not have to search through a bin in order to find each brush that I am looking for when it is needed. If you are beginner, I really recommend this set. It has everything, including a palette to have your paint on hand as well. I promise, if you don’t like this set I will gladly take it off your hands.

Myself- I was very pleased that she was happy with these. Teenage girls are hard to please. The price for such a great set of brushes and a palette is very pleasing. The base of the brush is a heavy duty wood, while the bristles allow to easily hold the correct amount of paint and to be rinsed easy too. I will buy more of these sets not only for my daughter but for myself to learn to paint but also for my daughter to have as she becomes more experienced.

I can say nothing but great things about these and really think you should give them a try if you are a painter whether beginner or experienced http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077F2YT2X you will be satisfied no matter what stage you are in. Good luck and have a blast.


BEST TWEEZERS SET – Includes CASE With Mirror

Every woman needs tweezers, a set for her purse, in the bathroom, the kitchen drawer,night stand, lets not forget the car and glove box and all the places in between. These happen to be the perfect set. There are 3 in the package, plus a mirror and discrete purple flashy case.

Each one of these pairs is different. There are sharp tips, flat tips and rounded tips. All for a different use, It is far from possible to get any closer to a set like these of your own, from anyone else. I have found a different purpose for each pair that are included.

Posture Corrector Brace + Resistance Band

Backache? Stiff neck? Sore muscles?? Towish’s Posture Corrector and Resisttance band is exactly what you will need. Talk about getting your posture straight and not having a slouch, the posture corrector will have you feeling better and ready to move in no time. The resistance band is a plus that comes with this package.
Using the posture corrector pulls your shoulders back gently and really helps, I started out wearing it for 15 minutes for 1 week and gradually increased the time up to 45 minutes 3-4 times a day. Never did I keep it on for longer than 6 hours tolal in a full day. I would put it on at breakfast, then again at lunch and after I had dinner.
The posture corrector will take a few days before you see yourself actually walking and sitting without a slump. As the days go on it will get easier and easier.
There is not a specific way to use the resistance band. Three are so many different ways that you can use it, whether it be for building muscles or to losing weight the options are unlimited. You will not see results the same day you use it, but if you are using this band correctly you will “feel the burn” the first few days.
I highly recommend this posture corrector, especially if you are not sitting up straight like you should. Receiving a resistance band is actually a double bonus and both of these products will be nothing but You can check it out, read other reviews and even order yours at https://www.amazon.com/s/url=search-alias&field-keywords=posture%20corrector%20for%20women&field-brand=Towish&high-price=30&low-price=15

BambooWorx pizza peel and cutter set

I have always been a person who makes pizza at home, either when I am alone or when my children want to help me. Never have I been able to find a pizza peel that is light, easy to use, durable and long lasting. Finally, I have found one.

BambooWorx has brought a very nice pizza peel to the market. It is made from 100% Bamboo material, making it easy to hold with or without a pizza on it. I took it from the box and it smelt like fresh wood, which was very easy to lighten the scent after it was washed. It is very easy to clean and keep clean as well.

Not only have I used this as a pizza peel I have also used it as a cutting board and cheese tray. It looked very nice as I had set up my table and used this peel as a tray to set a cheese and cracker on it. I didnt have to use a tacky looking board or even a metal tray like I normally do.

To top off all the great things with BambooWorx Pizza Peel they also included a very nicely made pizza cutter. The cutter is also really light and so easy to cut and even goes a complete 360 degrees with no problem. Overall I am so happy with this purchase and will definetly be getting a couple more for Christmas or birthday gifts. I recommend everyone check out http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0738ZMHP8 to learn more about this set, and even order yours. You will not be disappointed.

Baby Night Light – Honey Dog–

I have never heard of or seen Honey Dog or any part of the Honey family, I opened this box and fell in love. This family is so cute. Honey Dad is a night light while Honey is a small child that stands right next to dad.

This night light is a great size to sit on a desk or end table for a child to have on either before bed or through the night, if they are afraid of the dark. There are 4 different light brightness’s that you can have it set on, and even the brightest one is not enough to disturb a young ones sleeep. Honey Dad has an A/V plug that you can plug in and charge. Once the light turns green he is fully charged and lasts all night. He is easy to turn on and to dim the light. His hand has the power button which is also the dimmer, that is touched gently to either dim or turn him off. Very easy for a child to be shown to use and to use once shown how he works.

Honey has no light. You can leave her sitting on the table next to dad or your child can even hold her. Even while this light is left on for hours he is never so hot that you cant touch him. You can actually pick him up with both hands and carry him down the hallway if you need a light to get to the bathroom or even the kitchen to get a drink.

Overall, I am very impressed with the Homey Family light right down to the packaging. Please take a moment to look at Honey and his dad, make a purchase or even ask any questions that you may have at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0716DN2GH I can promise you will fall in love just like I have. After all every home needs a Honey Family.

Manatee Loose Leaf Tea Infuser Gift Set of 2 Campaign

Tea is my absolute favorite winter time drink, it can be cold or hot but either way it is my go to. I am not one to use tea bags because you are not sure how long they have been sitting on the shelf, while loose tea is fresh and the flavor is so much better.

I have used a metal infuser for so long that I decided it was time to give it a change and see what these little manatees could do. They are easy to take apart and fill with tea, and to put back together. The biggest thing is you don’t get a metal taste with you tea, the silicone is 100% better.

Not only are they easy to use, they have little arms that come right onto the cup, keeping them afloat and not sitting around in your cup of tea. I really like that they can brighten up your cup anytime of day, you are never blue with a manatee in your cup.

If you like to have loose and fresh tea at anytime during the day I really do recommend that you give these a try. You can find them at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A4FRJB8?m=AFLXUGWQKHKMR&ref_=v_sp_widget_detail_page These little manatees will brighten your cup and your day.

NEOSAN Women Winter Thick Knit Infinity Loop Scarf And Pom Pom Hat Set

I have lived in New York my whole life, born and raised minus the few months that I moved away during a couple summers.I am not a hat, glove or scarf type of person, it doesn’t matter how cold it is or how bad the wind is blowing, I would refuse. I was offered the chance to review this hat and scarf set and I can say I am so happy that I decided to say yes. This set is amazing.

The inside of the very well knitted hat is lined with a fur that matches the black hat itself. I tried it on inside and my head was so warm, so warm that I started to sweat and needed to take it off. I really like that even with my hair in a pony tail I can still wear it and be comfortable.

Part of the problem with me wearing a scarf is that I could never find one that would keep not only my neck warm but my chin and mouth area as well. I didn’t think that they existed. I thought wrong. Neosan has proved to me that warmth is on the top of their list. This tightly knitted, with a very heavy yarn, infinity scarf wraps around my neck twice and one of those times is around my chin and mouth area. That will no longer be a concern for me, because this fits and keeps me warm.

After wearing these in the house for just a short, I know that they will keep me warm even on the coldest days. High school students are not ones to wear hats or scarves either and my daughter has asked me to order her a set of her own, just in a different color, so she can keep warm too. I am excited for the weather to get cold, the snow to start falling, and the wind to start blowing so I can wear this set outside and know that I will be warm while I am building snowmen on the coldest days. I might even shovel now.

Check them out, order one for yourself or even a couple sets for a gifts. I can promise no matter who you get them for or even you will not be disappointed and will even send others looking for them too. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073TK95Z4

SKINOSM Pumpkin Carving Kit for Kids (5 Easy Halloween Pumpkin Carving Tools Set – 2 LED Candles & 10 Carving Templates)

Halloween, one of my favorite times of year. Carving pumpkins with the kids is the best. I decided on taking this campaign with Tomoson because it would not only make carving fun it would give me the tools to complete them a lot easier.

The spoons are huge, they made cleaning out the pumpkin a breeze, not only did it get all the seeds but it cleared down the walls also. The knifes, cut clean, and precise making our pumpkins the coolest in the neighborhood. We also used 7 of the patterns. Those were fun, the kids really enjoyed carving pumpkins that were not just like everyone else. After all different is cool and trending right?? The lights were placed in the pumpkins and they stayed lit for 5 days before we shut them off, and they were still lit then.

This was a fantastic campaign and something that I have since purchased again, not only because it was useful, and made carving fun, but because it is on sale. Take a look, I promise you will not be disappointed and it will be so worth it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075D21BC2
