Product Review: Arctic Zero “Chunky”

I had the pleasure of taste testing the new Arctic Zero Chunky flavors recently. Arctic Zero is a brand that I am familiar with, as I buy this product for myself and I have reviewed for them previously. I was introduced to this product a few years ago by my friend Bonny. Bonny knew about my sugar issues (hypoglycemia) and did some research to make sure it was safe for me to consume this product.

When I found out that this tasty treat was available at my local Whole Foods market, it didn’t take long for me to head on over to the market and check out these amazing products. With ingredients like purified water, whey protein concentrate, organic cane sugar, sea salt and monk fruit concentrate, I didn’t hesitate to jump on the chance to eat something sweet that was safe enough for my body to handle. All Arctic Zero products are low glycemic, fat free, certified gluten free, lactose free, nut free, vegetarian and Kosher. They make a variety of pint flavors and the most delicious frozen dessert bars. Each pint has four servings (one-half cup) and one serving is as low as 35 calories (depending on the flavor) and as little as 3 grams of sugar. The chunky varieties have a bit more per serving in the calorie department (75 to be exact), but well worth the extra calories. Any of the Arctic Zero flavors are a low calorie treat and alternative to regular ice cream. Believe me, when you taste these flavors you won’t miss ice cream or the calories that come with it.

Ozeri 360 Oscillating Tower Fan Model OZF5 Review!

Rather than posting some of my own photos I decide to post this professional video produced by Ozeri that shows you exactly how the fan operates and the wonderful features.

I had the pleasure of testing for this review the Ozeri 360 Oscillating Tower Fan. I have reviewed products for Ozeri several times now and I am super impressed with their quality and workmanship. This is a company that takes pride in their products and it shows.

The fan was 95% assembled when we took it out of the box so you don’t have to be a mechanic to set it up and use it immediately upon arrival. The only thing you need to do is install the base of the fan and you are ready to go.  

Some of the great features on this fan are 
the ability to oscillate at 60, 90, 120, or 360 degrees for partial to complete air circulation. It has three whisper quiet speed settings for customized airflow. The osculating feature is a plus to evenly distribute the cool air in any size room. Another great feature is the remote control, keep it next to your bed or TV table for instant access to the controls to lower or increase the air flow. The Ozeri 360 Tower Fan features an 8-hour timer that can be programmed in 30 minute increments, and a multi-colored LCD that displays all fan functions and the room temperature.

I love the portability of the Ozeri 360 Oscillating Tower Fan you can take it from room to room as needed. It only weighs approximately nine (9) pounds. Just unplug the fan and take it wherever it’s needed.

So when considering a new room fan checkout the entire line of Ozeri Oscillating Tower Fans available at!

Pamela’s Gluten Free Cookie Review and Giveaway!


Since I was diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity last year I’ve been testing various products made by the companies who make gluten free options.  I have some favorites already and I can add this one to the list – they are Pamela’s Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free Whenever Bars.  My favorite so far is the Oat Chocolate Chip Coconut – yummy!  These bars are wonderful as a snack and fulfilling enough to eat as a breakfast meal.  I really enjoy them and now keep one in my bag in case I am on the run and have no time to eat a full meal.  Each bar only contains 8 grams of sugar which is fine for me with my hypoglycemia. They come in a box of (5) bars and are much more economical than purchasing individual snack bars.

Slumber Cloud Nacreous Mattress Pad Review

Hot flashes…night sweats…sound familiar? Well I have it all and have for the past twelve years. I had a complete hysterectomy twelve years ago and I have gone through menopause so many times it’s ridiculous. I keep asking my doctor, “When is this going to stop?” He just looks at me and shrugs his shoulders. I have to admit it has gotten a little better with each passing year, they come and go much quicker and do not last as long now, but they are still bothersome and I wake up in a pool of sweat almost every night. I was soaked down to my undies and would have to get up (in the middle of the night) and change my clothes, take a towel and lay it down on the bed to be able to go back to sleep until the morning. When I woke up the next day, I would have to strip the entire bed and put on new sheets. What a pain, right? Many of my friends complain of these same symptoms, so I imagine some of you out there you are experiencing them as well.  It sucks getting old, but it’s something we women have to deal with.

I thought, “There has to be something out there that will help this situation,” so I started to do my research. I bought “moisture wicking” sheets – they were not only expensive, but worthless in my opinion. I bought “moisture wicking” pajamas…same as the sheets, worthless and expensive. So I was determined to find something, not just for me, but for my friends who were going through this same nightmare.

In my research, I came across a company called Slumber Cloud.  They make a line of bedding products that are guaranteed to keep you cool all night long (30 day money back guarantee – see the website for details). I was skeptical but anxious to receive my Nacreous Mattress Pad and give it a try. My long-time followers will agree – I do not and will not review or endorse any product that does not live up to its claim.  So when I tell you that the Slumber Cloud’s Nacreous Mattress Pad keeps you cool all night long you can trust I am telling you the truth. This is not another one of those companies with false claims to sell you a product. THIS ONE WORKS. I’ve been sleeping on four inches of memory foam for a few years now; it helps with my arthritis. So I just placed Slumber Cloud’s cooling mattress pad on top of my regular mattress pad (with my memory foam underneath) and it has been amazing. I am sleeping better and getting a much more restful sleep as I am not waking up in the middle of the night drenched down to my undies. If you are suffering from night sweats or just one of those people who produces a tremendous amount of body heat at night, you need the Slumber Cloud’s Nacreous Mattress Pad.

From the company’s website:

Traditional mattresses allow heat and moisture radiating from your skin to become trapped under the covers. The result? You toss and turn and push the covers away until you cool off. Then you get too cold, so you bundle up and the cycle begins again. Slumber Cloud’s Nacreous Mattress Pad manages the microclimate under the covers by absorbing heat when you are too hot and releasing heat when your skin temperature begins to drop. It’s the hardest working mattress pad on the market and has earned our Gold+ Comfort Rating. Cool and silky to the touch thanks to Outlast® viscose fabric, and an expert at thermal-regulation due to its inner Outlast® liner fabric, the Nacreous Mattress Pad ensures that you get every one of your 40 winks.

I cannot sing the praises of this product enough – it is truly amazing! I will never go another night without my Slumber Cloud’s Nacreous Mattress Pad. Check out the full line of Slumber Cloud products at their website!

Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop Model SK460 Review


As you all know (from previous blog reviews) I am a huge fan of the Shark family of products.  I own so many I’ve lost count and I love each and every one of them. Even before I started working with the company I purchased several Shark products for my home and they are still going strong after many years of service.  Their dependability and affordable price is what keeps me coming back for more.  Shark is on the cutting edge of technology with small appliances for the home and each year they just seem to get better and better.

I was asked to review the Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop System Model SK460 recently.  Of course I was excited to receive this product because I know even before I open the box it will be an amazing product for use in my home.  I have never been disappointed in any of my Shark purchases and I knew that the Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop Model SK460 wouldn’t disappoint.

As I suspected this product did an amazing job on my hardwood and tile floors.  Cleaning with steam assures you that your floors will be 99.9% sanitized from many of the germs that lurk in our homes.  I especially love to use my Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop System Model SK460 in the bathroom and in my kitchen, the two busiest rooms in our house.  No matter how hard I try to keep them clean with three adults in the house it just seems impossible.  Sometimes I think my 27 year old son is reverting back to his childhood spilling and making a mess on the kitchen floor. His midnight refrigerator raids always produce some kind of mess and remnants always seem to find their way to my kitchen floor. Of course it’s way too much trouble for him to take a damp cloth and clean up his mess so the next day it turns into a sticky nightmare for Mom to clean up. That’s when I reach for my Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop Model SK460 to get the job done fast and efficiently.

The Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop System Model SK460 has three-level intelligent steam control, you get the perfect amount of steam no matter what the job!  Steam & Spray mode for tough messes, Spray Only mode for quick cordless cleaning and Steam Only mode for sanitizing with no residue.

shark3cleaningmodesThe Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop System Model SK460 is available for an amazing low price from and it ships free which is a nice added bonus. This is the best value I could find in my research for you guys to make your purchase.  Shark makes several models of steam and spray mops so if you are going to compare prices, as I did, make sure you are price matching the correct model (SK460WM) but I doubt you will find a better price. has other sites beat by as much as $40.00 and they charge shipping as well.  Your Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop comes with:  The Shark Pro Steam and Spray Mop, Two disposable SaniFiber pads and one washable pad, one 20 oz bottle of steam energized cleanser to get your started cleaning immediately upon receipt of your product.
