Review and Giveaway: Tumeric Curcumin With Bioperine from Schwartz Bioresearch

As many of you know I have had a rough time with joint and muscle pain since my blot clot diagnosis in 2015.  Unfortunately, because I take blood thinners on a daily basis, many over the counter remedies for joint and muscle soreness are not safe for me to take.  That makes me sad since I know they work as I have taken them in the past.

I received for review a product called Tumeric Curcumin with Bioperine from Schwartz Bioresearch.  Since I could not test the product myself I recruited my husband to test it for my review.

Now you have to understand my husband is one of these people who hates and I mean hates to take even an aspirin when he is sick so it took some convincing on my part.  He has been suffering with joint pain for years but wouldn’t see a doctor or take anything to help his situation.  I convinced him to do some research on Tumeric products and he found out they are safe and non-narcotic so he was willing to give it a try.  It’s been about four weeks now and my husband has felt a significant difference in his joint pain after taking the Tumeric Curcumin with Bioperine.  He’s a happy camper and will continue taking this product for many years to come now that he is feeling so much better.

Product Review: bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner from bObsweep

Have you met bObi?  That is, bObi the robotic vacuum cleaner. Let me introduce you to my new bObi robotic vacuum cleaner from bObsweep and tell you about this amazing cleaning tool that every house should have. This product is going to save me so much time and energy that I am doing the happy dance.

I had the pleasure of reviewing this amazing little gadget recently. You will see in the short video demonstration below how this product will vacuum your entire house all by itself without you having to lift a finger. It also has the capability to pick up a small liquid spill.

I received for review the “Classic” model. There are two models available for purchase, the bObi Classic and the bObi Pet. You can view more information on both of these models at the bObsweep website, but the basic difference is that the “Pet” model has stronger suction, more forceful brush contact, and increased battery life.

With 5-in-1 cleaning power, bObi hits the floor with everything she’s got. Her heavy-duty vacuum extracts dirt and dust while her trio of brushes reel in larger bits and scraps; attach her mop and bObi finishes with a shine. To go the extra mile, bObi’s UV light kills floor bacteria while her built-in HEPA filter traps harmful airborne particles.

Capresso Perk Model 405.05 Review!

My husband and I love coffee.  We have tried so many coffee makers over the years from drip to press and back again.  Each time something new comes out on the market we purchase it hoping to find the best tasting brew.  My husband is and always has been a perk coffee fan and that is what he prefers to drink.  Our electric peculator is quite old and I’m afraid showing signs that it won’t be with us much longer.  So when I was contacted by the folks at Capresso to test and review their Capresso Perk I was thrilled.  It couldn’t have come at a better time.

Shark Rocket 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.

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 or they are available at

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.

Product Review: Farberware Classic Cookware Set

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

Check out all the wonderful cookware sets that Farberware has to offer at their on line store – Farberware On Line Store. You can find them on Amazon as well.
