Revlon Ultra HD Matte Finish Lipcolor Review – 2 thumbs down!


I have been wearing Revlon lipstick for years.  I’m not a big makeup person, generally I only wear lipstick every day if I am going out, but I wanted to try these new Revlon Ultra HD Matte Finish Lipcolor as I was intrigued when I saw the commercial.  I hate lipstick that runs or gets all over things and these new matte finish lipsticks or lip glosses are supposed to dry completely so I really wanted to give them a try.

I purchased three of them last week at CVS.  I have to tell you they are horrible!  Yes horrible!  They were such a disappointment that I’m taking them back and getting a refund.  They never dried and they were all over everything, my face, my clothes, they were a mess.  I have some other matte finish lip stains that I purchased from Amazon which dry completely but the colors are so similar that I wanted to explore other possibilities.  I know that Maybelline makes this type as well so that will be my next purchase but as far as the Revlon ones they are just the worst thing I have ever used.

Sorry Revlon go back to the drawing board on this one they just don’t cut it.  I’ll stick to purchasing your regular lipsticks in a tube.


Duri Voyage Diva Summer Polish Collection Review and Giveaway!

I had the pleasure of receiving the Duri Voyage Diva Summer Collection of nail polishes for review.  As many of you know I am a licensed manicurist although I am not currently working.  That being said I love to stay current with trade publications and nail trends so that if I decide to return to work some day I will be up to date on all that is current in the nail industry.

Duri is one of my favorite nail polish lines for many reasons.  The most important features for me in choosing a line of polish (to use personally and to recommend) is if it stays on and wears well over an extended period of time and that the company stays innovative with products and collections – Duri covers all that and more for me.

The Voyage Diva Summer Polish Collection is a wonderful rainbow of amazing colors that will not disappoint – I love them all!Continue reading

The Spice Lab Review!

I had the pleasure of receiving this wonderful sample box from a company called The Spice Lab.  This assortment sample box that I received is a fraction of what they carry on their website.

This is not a subscription box service.  This box that I received was something prepared by the company for bloggers to review.  They sell many single items and have many other gift options.

The Spice Lab has a wide selection of salts, spices, blends, rubs, seasonings, teas, pantry, mixology and housewares from around the world.

The beautiful gourmet 4-spice sampler contains these sea salts from around the world:  Spanish Chorizo (from Spain), Applewood Smoked (from Washington, USA), Cyprus White Flake (from the Island of Cyprus), Himalayan Pink (from Pakistan).  This is available in the 4-pack, 6-pack, 7-pack, 11-pack and 12-pack in various combinations. Of course the larger collections will contain more variety of spices and/or salts.  Check them all out here!

The two full size spices that I received are Olive Oil Herb Blend and Spicy Burger N’ Steak.  Cannot wait to try these.  I am always at a loss for what type of spices to put on beef.  These will be a great help.


Prices are very reasonable and shipping is free on an order of $50.00 or more in the USA, other shipping rates apply outside the USA so check their website.

Did you know that experts recommend you replace your dried herbs and spices every 1 to 2 years!  Lord I have had some for years so I took a look in my spice draw and pitched so many. I’m going to start ordering my new fresh herbs/spices from The Spice Lab.

Here are some tips to keeping your herbs/spices as fresh as possible in between uses.

  • Keep herbs and spices away from heat, light, and moisture. Don’t store them by a hot stove or by a window where sunlight, rain, and drafts can get in, but store them somewhere that’s dark with a cool, steady room temperature.
  • Keep herbs and spices in dark or opaque containers, as light fades their color. If you really like using glass storage containers (I do), store a small amount in glass, but leave the bulk of your dried seasonings tightly sealed in a dark place.

Don’t know what to get Aunt Mary and Uncle Bill for their anniversary – surprise them with a gift pack of fresh herbs/spices from The Spice Lab and they will be thrilled.

Crucible 7-Piece Nylon Utensil Set Review And Giveaway



I had the pleasure of reviewing the Crucible 7-Piece Nylon Utensil Set today.  This is a great started set for any new bride, someone who just purchased their first home, or a great addition to any seasoned cook’s kitchen.  The Colorful 7-piece (6 kitchen tools and 1 organizer stand) Kitchen / Serving Utensils Set includes a Spatula, Slotted Spoon, Slotted Turner, Ladle, Spaghetti Server, Solid Spoon and Organizing 360 Degree Rotating Carousel Stand.

I love the elevated head design that allows you to place the utensil on the counter without making a mess.  Normally you need a spoon rest or a plate to place your cooking utensil down so that the food doesn’t get all over your counter but not with Crucible’s set.  They thought of everything to make a cook’s job much easier and less clean up.

Kansas City Steak Company Review!

I had the pleasure of reviewing the most amazing steaks from the Kansas City Steak Company recently.  They sent me four (4) 6 ounce Super Trimmed Filet Mignons, packed in dry ice and shipped overnight. The week we received these it had rained continuously for almost two weeks, so I was unable to grill them outside as originally planned. So…the next best thing was to broil them in the oven.  I didn’t even have to try and figure out what seasonings to put on the filets as they came with a seasoning packet right in the box.  These filets were so moist and tender it was like cutting into butter. I can honestly say these were the BEST filets we have ever eaten.  My husband, my son and I really enjoyed them so much, I plan to place an order from time to time.  Yes, they are expensive but I would sooner order these filets occasionally for my family than the steaks I buy at the market. Now I know how horrible the steak quality is at the local market compared to Kansas City Steak Company’s product.  There is no comparison – Kansas City Steaks are the best and I know you will agree once you taste them.

Here’s a little video I prepared for you so you can see the end result after they were broiled in my oven.

Each Kansas City filet is aged up to 28 days to enhance its flavor and tenderness.  These steaks are high-end restaurant quality delivered directly to your door.  Each steak is vacuum sealed and individually packaged so you can choose one or more each time you decide to serve them.  Each order comes with a Kansas City Steak booklet with cooking instructions, tips, and more.

The Kansas City Steak Company has been in business since 1932.  Their company is based firmly on family values – that’s why it’s been in business for over 80 years. Those standards of integrity, quality and hard work have made this company one you can trust.

Kansas City Steak Company has a variety of meats to choose from.  They not only have the finest quality steaks but they offer Kobe Beef, Seafood, Appetizers, Side Dishes, Desserts, Seasonings and Sauces and much more.

Kansas City Steak Company has a wide variety of gift options as well.  You can see them all here!

Not sure what to buy Aunt Millie and Uncle Bob come holiday time – check out all the possibilities at Kansas City Steak’s website!
