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.

The Perfecter Pro Grip Digital Fusion Styler Review

If you are anything like me you jump at the chance to purchase the latest styler on the market to make styling your hair faster and easier. I’m no different especially since I do not have the “hair-styling” gene.  Yes you all laugh but I cannot do my own hair for the life of me. I can do nails all day long, but hair, now that’s another story. It’s not that I don’t give each and every styling product that I buy a good try, I just can never seem to figure out how to make my hair look like the photos or infomercial.

So when the folks at Calista Tools the maker of the Perfecter Pro Grip Digital Fusion Styler asked me to test and review their product I though on no not me I won’t know how to use it or give it a fair assessment.  Well I can finally say I “can” style my hair.  This product cannot be simpler or easier to use and it does a wonderful job of styling hair in just minutes. It heated up so quickly (the instructions states tree minutes time but I honestly do not think it even took three minutes) so if you are in a hurry or late for work this product won’t keep you waiting.

Peanut Butter & Co. – Bestie Nut Butters

The folks at Peanut Butter & Co. have asked me to create a recipe using one of their new Bestie Nut Butters.  I choose the cashew butter to create a recipe as it’s my favorite nut butter.  This delicious nut butter is pure with no sugar added.  None of the Bestie nut butters that Peanut Butter & Co. make contain added sugars.  The Cashew Nut Butter a nothing more than just cashews, sunflower oil and a touch of sea salt so you can feel good about serving them to your family.  Some of these nut butters on the market today have names of chemicals I cannot even pronounce. Peanut Butter & Co. products are as pure as if you made them yourself at home.

My recipe is simple but delicious.  A low calorie alternative to ice cream without the fat and calories but just as amazing to the taste buds.  This recipe is vegan approved and highly recommended by my niece Elise who is a strict vegan.

You will need a food processor, 1 medium to large banana (frozen), 2 tablespoons of Bestie Nut Butter (your choice), 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (please use the good stuff not the artificial product) and a splash (no more than 1/4 cup) of almond milk.

I cut up the banana before I freeze it because it makes it a lot easier to place in the food processor when you are ready to prepare your treat.  The riper your banana the sweeter your treat will be.

Put all the ingredients into your food processor and let it whirl!  You will have the most delicious low-calorie frozen treat to enjoy.

Checkout the entire line of Peanut Butter & Co. products on their website.  Can’t find them in your area?  You can order them directly from the company or find them on Amazon (here)!

Farberware Classic Cookware Set Review and Giveaway!

entertowindivider

This contest has ended!

The first gift I received (from my Mom) when I got engaged was a set of Farberware stainless steel cookware.  My mom used them in her kitchen for as long as I can remember and after she passed away we gave them to a niece that is still using them, they were in excellent shape.

I have had my set for over forty years and they are still in great condition like the day I got them. They have cooked many meals for my family over the past forty years and I am confident they will continue to serve me for many more years to come.

I had the pleasure of receiving for review this amazing 17 piece Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Cookware Set which I will gift to my son and future daughter-in-law for their new home. This set has a non-stick coating on each of the two skillets for easy clean up and non-stick cooking.  Each pot/pan has safety stay-cool handles which insure you never get burned.  I have purchased some pots over the years and handles got so hot they were dangerous and I pitched them for that reason.  This will never happen with your Farberware set.  The cookware and bakeware (only) is oven safe up to 350 degrees so you can go from the stove top directly into the oven to finish off your meal. Each Farberware pot/pan has an aluminum core for even heating so no dead spots with uneven cooking temperatures.

This 17 piece set is a wonderful starter set for a new bride, new home owner, or just as a replacement set for any seasoned cook.

As an added bonus this set includes three stainless steel bowls with lids and two cookie pans.

The 17 piece set includes the follow:

  • One 1-quart pot + lid
  • One 2-quart pot + lid
  • One 3-quart pot + lid
  • One 4-quart pot + lid
  • One 8-quart pot + lid
  • One 8-inch skillet – lids are interchangeable with pots
  • One 10-inch skillet – lids are interchangeable with pots
  • Three (3) stainless steel bowls with lids
  • Two (2) cookie pans

KITCHENEED Barbecue Grilling Cooking Gloves – with Bonus Basting Brush Review!

My husband loves to BBQ. We own gas grill, a Smoker and a deep fryer for outdoor use. I don’t know why but we have never invested in a pair of BBQ gloves after all these years. For years whenever my husband would have to handle hot ribs off the smoker he would use cloth oven mitts and get burned eventually when the sauce would soak through the fabric – I know crazy right?

So when the folks at Kitcheneed asked me to test and review their Silicone Cooking and BBQ Gloves I was thrilled.

As soon as I received the gloves I opened the package and to my surprise there was a wonderful silicone basting brush that was included as a bonus. I love these silicone basting brushes they come in so handy for many kitchen jobs. For years, anytime we had to grease a pan we would have to use a paper towel to do so, not anymore with silicone basting brushes. I have several and use them all the time so this was an added bonus.

The gloves are over-sized so they will fit just about any size hand especially a man.  My husband especially liked the “rugged skin” as it’s called (textured nubs on the gloves) that provide a nice non-slip surface.  The instructions state that the gloves work to protect hands at a frigid -45 degrees to the searing heat of 425 degrees. So when my husband picked up the steaming hot ribs from the smoking pit the gloves protected his hands from burns.

The silicone material is BPA (cancer causing chemicals) free, top quality silicone, so I am sure we will have them for many years to come.

The gloves have a nice “loop” tab so you can hang them up on any hook in your kitchen for every day use or on the BBQ when just using them outdoors.

Make no mistake these versatile glove are not just for BBQing. They are wonderful for any household job that requires you to handle hot or cold items. Even in boiling water, the waterproof design makes sure your hands stay dry, and safeguarded from burns. Best of all, they are FDA approved. I am going to use them when I clean out my freezer. I’m always looking for a pair of winter gloves when doing this so that my hands do not get freezer burnt handing the frozen foods.

Here I am taking a very hot pan out of the oven (filet) and I was able to handle it with no issue using the Kitcheneed Silicone Cooking and BBQ Gloves

Bloomsy Box Review

I was asked recently to review fresh flowers from a company called Bloomsy Box.  As most of you know, I had eye surgery on the 14th of September. During my recovery, the flowers arrived. Bloomsy Box is an online retailer of fresh flowers that delivers to anywhere in the USA. I am sure many of you (like myself) have used an online retail florist to send flowers to a friend or relative who lives outside of your immediate area. I, for one, have never been satisfied with the flowers that my friend or loved one received. They never look like what they portray on the website and they charge a small fortune to boot. I don’t mind paying for what I perceive to be the same exact arrangement of flowers that I see on their website but it angers me when I find out it’s nothing like what they describe.

A few years ago for Mother’s Day, my son spent a small fortune to send me what he thought was the Mother’s Day arrangement from a well-known, advertised-on-TV online florist. What came was nothing like what he had ordered.  It was a very small arrangement and nothing like he had paid for. The flowers came from a local florist and, needless to say, my son was disappointed and I was angry because I knew he had spent over $100 for what he thought he was getting. I called the local florist and only after I complained did the “advertised” arrangement show up at my door. Now, had I not known about the “advertised” arrangement, I would have never known that what I received was nothing like what he had ordered.

bloomsey2My Bloomsy Box beautiful flowers arrived in a box via overnight shipping. They had not bloomed yet so I put them in a vase with the special food packet included in the box and the following day, I woke up to this beautiful arrangement.

These beautiful lilies continue to flourish each day in my house and so far they have lived over 10 days. I received them on the 19th of September and today is now the 29th and they are still alive and vibrant.  Normally, you can barely get a week out of fresh cut flowers, even if they are delivered locally. My best friend sent me a dozen long stem roses for my birthday; they didn’t even last seven days.

Every bouquet Bloomsy Box sends includes amazingly fresh, unique, and long-lasting blooms! Each stem is hand-picked from the farm, arranged in stunning bouquets, and delivered straight to your door in less than four days.  No more dull, dry, week-old flowers! Since most of their blooms arrive in bud form, they’re guaranteed to last longer than your typical store-bought bouquets. Bloomsy Box has farm partnerships that guarantee you’ll get blooms that are freshly cut 2-4 days before you get to enjoy them. You know what’s even more awesome? The farms they work with take care of their workers and the environment.

At Bloomsy Box you can purchase a one-time bouquet under the “shop” tab or you can buy a monthly subscription for someone special in your life.

Check out the beautiful flowers available at Bloomsybox.com.
