Shark Rocket Complete TruePet with DuoClean Technology (Model HV382) Review!

I had the pleasure to review the new Shark Rocket Complete TruePet with DuoClean Technology recently. As you all know by now I am a huge fan of the Shark/Ninja family of products and I continue to love each and every new product that they manufacture. This is a company who cares about it’s customers and continues to make improvements to better our lives.

I don’t know any one that likes to clean, but unless you are fortune enough to have someone or a service come in and clean your house for you, many of us are stuck with the task ourselves. I too clean my own house and with each passing year, as I get older, I dread it more and more. I have a fairly large house and in my younger years I was able to whip through one floor (bi-level home) in one day but now I’m lucky to get through one room a day. For this reason I am always looking for new and innovative products to help make the task easier and faster. Shark has done it again with the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology.

Banza Chickpea Pasta Review!

If you have been following me for a while you would know that I have a severe case of hypoglycemia.  I cannot eat many of the foods that others eat on a daily basis such as pasta, potatoes, rice, bread, just about all starches that turn into sugar after your stomach has digested them.  For someone who grew up Italian this is torture for me.  I have had to eliminate almost all of these foods from my diet or anything made with these products completely.  I spend hours in the market and specialty food stores reading ingredients and most times walk out empty handed.

I happen to stumble on a product called Banza. It is a pasta made with chickpea flour instead of the traditional semolina flour that other pasta products are made with. Banza has double the protein, four times the fiber, and nearly half the net carbs. It is also gluten free for those of you who have eliminated gluten from your diet. Since Banza does not turn into sugar like traditional pasta after digestion it would be great for someone who is diabetic as well. You can use Banza in place of your regular brand of pasta and your recipe will turn out just as delicious.

Banaz comes in the following varieties:  Ziti, Shells, Penne, Elbows, Spaghetti and a variety of Mac and Cheese flavors.  You can see them all here on the Banza website!

Banza can also be purchased at Amazon.  Banza is available at retails stores as well.  See their store locator here!

Needless to say I am doing the “happy dance” because I can finally enjoy a plate of pasta with my family without getting sick.  You cannot image what happens to me when I eat regular pasta – migraine headache, jitters, sick to my stomach to the point I have to stay in bed for the entire day after it is ingested.  Banaza is the answer to my prayers.

The rep was kind enough to send me six boxes of Banza to try.  They are almost gone now as I use one each time I serve my family pasta for dinner. Needless to say I will  be stocking up on Banza so that I can enjoy a pasta dinner once again.

Just a tip when preparing Banza, make sure to use plenty of water when cooking this product.  It does take longer to cook than regular pasta but just follow the instructions on the box and taste test as you are cooking it.

Give Banza a try I am certain you will love it as much as I do and it is much more nutritious than traditional pasta and has less carbs so you won’t have to feel guilty anymore about eating your pasta.

www.GourmetGiftBaskets.com Review

I had the pleasure of receiving two items from www.GourmetGiftBaskets.com for review recently.  One was a box of beautifully decorated chocolate covered strawberries and the other a gift basket full of breakfast items.

Here is a little video unveiling I have prepared for you.

The strawberries arrived first in a foil pouch with an ice packet to keep them at a certain temperature so that they did not melt.  I thought that was a wonderful idea since I have in the past received perishable items that have spoiled or melted because of the temperature change.  They were fresh and delicious.

My 10 Favorite Tried and True Nail Products – you will love them too!

Rosey’s top 10 favorite nail products!

You don’t have to be a licensed professional to purchase and or use these products.  Over the years I have tried hundreds of products and in my professional opinion these are the best for me and my clients.  Today many companies give access to the public to purchase their products through their web stores even if you are not a licensed professional.

You may have your favorites but don’t get caught up in the hype of many that mass promote their products.  Some lesser known companies like Cuccio make some of the best nail products on the market today.

 

  1. Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener – My absolute all time favorite product – Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener!  I love love love this product and cannot say enough great things about it.  You can read what some of my customers and clients say about this “miracle in a bottle” product here.  This product will improve the health of your nails in as little as 2 weeks time.  However I tell my customers and clients it can take up to 6 months for a full nail growth (from the cuticle to the free edge) so if you don’t see an immediate improvement you will just give it some time. You will be amazed at how your nails will get healthier and stronger using this product.  You can buy this product direct from me here.

StarNight Laser Review and Giveaway!

starnightlaser

I had the pleasure of reviewing the StarNight Laser (original) light projector tonight.  I was so intrigued by this product ever since I saw it advertised on television that I just had to review it.  I’m married to Ebenezer Scrooge now, he doesn’t want to put up any decorations for the holidays.  We have invested thousands of dollars in outdoor holiday decorations but as he grows older he has no ambition to string lights on each and every shrub or put up holiday decorations on our property.  So the StarNight Laser is the perfect solution to a lazy husband who no longer wants to decorate the outside of the house for the holidays.

Take the StarNight Laser out of the box, plug it into an electrical outlet outside or inside your home and you are done. No ladders, no tools, nothing needed and nothing could be easier.  Even my Ebenezer Scrooge can do that much.

StarNight Laser comes in two different models, StarNight Laser (original) which is what I received for review and the newer StarNight Laser Dancers.

StarNight Lasers and StarNight Laser Dancers are the fastest and easiest way to decorate your home, both indoors and outdoors, all year round. You can choose from different settings and patterns to customize your lights depending on the holiday or occasion.  StarNight Laser can be used for birthday parties, graduations, weddings, holiday decorating and any occasion you can think of to make your home come alive.

StarNight Lasers are designed with eight different programs of twinkling star-kissed lights. StarNight Laser Dancers add motion to the star field and dance with seven different programs.

Each product covers approximately 2500 square feet of space with breathtaking stars. StarNight Lasers and StarNight Laser Dancers give you the option of red, green, or a combination of both red and green lights.

Each single set of StarNight Lasers and StarNight Laser Dancers includes 1 lawn-mounting stake, 1 extra-long heavy-duty cord, 1 floor-mounting stand, and 1 StarNight laser. Every StarNight Laser is water-resistant and has a built-in automatic timer. This means they can withstand the harshest weather conditions.

I tried my best to take some video for you of the StarNight Laser outside my home unfortunately the camera was not cooperating.  I didn’t have a enough light but here is a still photo that came out decent.

You can purchase either model of the StarNight Laser directly from the company website or on Amazon.com.

Make a small investment in the StarNight Laser so you can decorate the entire inside or outside of your home in no time flat.

Mally Beauty Cosmetics Review!

I had the pleasure of receiving some wonderful make up from Mally Beauty for review.  Many of you may be familiar with Mally Beauty Cosmetics and it’s founder Mally Roncal but if not let me give you a little background on the company and it’s founder.

Makeup artist Mally Roncal’s love affair with all things glam started at an early age. As a young girl growing up in upstate New York, Mally began experimenting with makeup on her mother, an incredible beauty who was and continues to be her biggest inspiration. From that early age, Mally’s parents instilled in her the philosophy that the things that make us different are the qualities that make us beautiful—a mantra that has guided Mally in her every pursuit. Mally has traveled the globe doing makeup for some of the most fab faces in the world, including Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, Ashlee Simpson, Angelina Jolie, and Heidi Klum. Renowned for her ability to make her clients look and feel beautiful, Mally became the go-to makeup artist for all things beauty, sharing her advice in the pages of top magazines and on shows like Oprah, The Today Show, Rachael Ray, and The View. Today her line consists of over 1,000 products designed to deliver what Mally calls “bulletproof” beauty: user-friendly, multitasking products that truly stay put all day.

I received for review Mally’s High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Orchid, H3 Gel Lipstick and Evercolor Shadow Stick in Moonlight and Mahogany.

The High Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen in Orchid – is a 4-in-1 product that includes your lip primer, lipstick, lip gloss, and lip liner all in one.  I love the convenience of having it in a brush on pen in a compact container to slip right into my handbag.  This product is available in 31 shades so there has to be one or more that is right for your taste.

The H3 Gel Lipstick in Poppie – is a gel-infused H3 Gel Lipstick is a gel-based lipstick rather than wax-based. This lasted for hours without me having to reapply I will certainly buy more colors from this line.  Check out all 12 shades here.

The Evercolor Shadow Stick – is your primer, shadow base, and eye shadow all in one. You can also use it as an eyeliner.  That’s four ways to use this one product which saves you money. The Evercolor Shadown Stick is available in 24 shades check them out here. 

You can purchase any of the Mally Beauty cosmetics at her website MallyBeauty.com or they are available at QVC.com

Durilaq Gel Polish Review!

There are many brands of gel polish on the market today, so many brands, that it can get confusing which to chose.  As a licensed manicurist I try to be open to any and all the brands being sold from the high end to the drug store brands.  The newest products, from some well known brands, require no LED light curing.  These are extremely convenient especially for the do-it-yourselfer who doesn’t want to go to the salon every week or two to have their polish changed.

I recently received a bottle of Durilaq, (from the makers of Duri Polish) a non-LED light curing gel polish in O Sole Mia (a beautiful red) to test.  I was sent one polish and one top coat. No base coat is required just two coats of Durilaq color and one coat of Durilaq Top Coat and you’re ready to go. The instructions recommends that you wait two minutes in between polish coats to allow it to dry.
