Cutex Polish Remover Review and Giveaway!




I had the pleasure recently of reviewing the latest products in Cutex line of polish removers.  Don’t be confused this isn’t your mother’s Cutex polish remover from years ago it’s new and improved. Yes I too recall that bottle of Cutex polish remover (it was the only brand available) growing up on my Mom’s vanity. Over the years there has been so many brands of polish remover introduced to the public it’s hard to keep them all straight.  As a licensed manicurist I am exposed to many nail care products.  I receive samples from various companies asking for my opinion or a review on my blog.  Not all make the cut.  As you all know I will not lie about any product but I always say your experience or result may vary from mine but my opinion on any product is my truth.

Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System Review Model MC750

ninja3in1As many of your know (who have followed me for a while now) I have a love affair going on with Ninja and Shark products.  Way before I started doing product reviews for this company I was a huge fan of their products. I own several that are no longer even manufactured by Ninja/Shark so that should tell you how long I’ve been a fan.

I had the pleasure of testing the Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System recently and it did not disappoint.  My favorite feature – you can place frozen food* in the Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System and still have a cooked meal in time for dinner! What a lifesaver for many of us working Mom’s who sometime forget (me all the time) to take something out of the freezer the night before to allow it ample time to thaw in the refrigerator.

Power Pressure Cooker XL Review and Giveaway!




I had the pleasure of receiving for review the Power Pressure Cooker XL from Chef Eric Theiss.   Here is my personal opinion of this amazing time-saving life-saving appliance.

You may have seen my review of another similar product a few months ago.  I have to tell you that unless you are an experienced pressure cooker user that other appliance leaves a novice like myself out in the cold scratching your head trying to figure out how to use their appliance.  I was so confused and frustrated with that other brand it is now in a box in my basement.  It will never get used again.

The Power Pressure Cooker XL is am amazing time-saving life-saver for any working Mom.  This appliance can cook a meal in 30 minutes or less for your family and will save you a ton of money on nutritious daily meals instead of paying for take out food.  Your Power Pressure Cooker XL can make roasts, stews, soups, breads, cakes, steam rice, and so much more.

Ozeri 12-Inch Green Earth Wok Review and Demonstration Video


I had the pleasure of testing the Ozeri 12-inch Green Earth Wok today while preparing my dinner.  The wok was comfortable to work with, has a nice weight to it but not too heavy that it is difficult to lift, and clean up was a breeze.

Ozeri has thought of everything by included this genius “pan protector” a green felt insert that you put into the pan for storage.  This protects the pan from being scratched insuring the ceramic coating will last for years of service.




I have prepared a short video for you to see how easy the Ozeri Green Earth Wok is to work with.

Unlike other ceramic cookware pans, the Ozeri Green Earth Wok utilizes an ultra-safe ceramic coating inspired by nature which is 100% PTFE and PFOA free. Delivers unprecedented non-stick performance without releasing harmful fumes or toxins at high temperatures. Features a scratch-resistant 100 percent ceramic coating that is super easy to clean. Made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals.
Boasts a comfortable heat resistant Bakelight handle, and a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer.

The Ozeri 12-inch Green Earth Wok is a must-have for every cook.  It can be used as a regular fry pan as well but the high sides make it particularly handy for any wok style cooking.

Does Dad love to cook?  If so this is a great Father’s Day gift for any Dad who loves to be in the kitchen.
