Salonpas Pain Relief Patch Review and Giveaway!

For the past few years I have been experiencing a multitude of medical issues which all started when I was diagnosed in 2016 with a clotting disorder called Factor Five.  I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Arthritis and see a Rheumatologist on a regular basis for these two conditions.  I take prescription medication to help with the debilitating pain and often use Salonpas Pain Relief Patches to get me through the day.  Some days are very difficult for me and I just want to stay in bed but I push myself to get up and get moving because if not it will be much worse.  I’ve  tried holistic methods to help with the pain but nothing worked so my only other option was prescription medications.

Believe me, I’m not a happy camper! I don’t want to take prescription drugs as they have so many side effects, some very scary, but when you have to decide whether to say in bed and feel sorry for yourself or get relief, you do what you have to do to survive.

May is National Arthritis Awareness Month, and in the United States, 23% of all adults—over 54 million people—have arthritis.

On February 14, 2020 the Food and Drug administration approved Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel (previously you needed a prescription for this gel) for over the counter sales.  I have been prescribed Voltaren Pain Gel by my doctor, however, it can take up to seven (7) days to see any improvement. So on the days when the pain is so bad and the Voltaren is just not working fast enough I turn to Salonpas Pain Relief Patches to get me through the day.

Voltaren can only be used on six (6) joints and has not been proven effective for any other pains such as back aches or muscle strains.


“The good news is if you are an arthritis sufferer and want fast and effective relief, there are other topical options,” says Dr. Bob Arnot including “Salonpas Pain Relief Patch Large which is a great choice for fast, effective arthritis relief.”

Checkout this video from Dr. Bob Arnot with pain relief suggestions for living with Arthritis.

 

Salonpas Pain Relief Patches now come in a LARGE size to cover a larger area at one time – no more putting on multiple patches (like me) to cover a larger area.  These Salonpas LARGE patches are great for your lower back, shoulder, thigh, calf and anywhere on your body that needs some relief from pain. They are easy to apply and work up to 12 consecutive hours.

Whether you suffer from Arthritis pain like I do or you managed to pull or strained a muscle, Salonpas Pain Relief Patches or other Salonpas products can help relieve that pain and help you get through the day.

Salonpas products can be purchased through Amazon (which is the best price I have found) – see the entire line of Salonpas products here!

Oliso M2 Pro Mini Iron Review and Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received a sample (as described below) to conduct my review for this blog post.  All opinions stated in this post are truthful and mine alone.  Receiving a sample(s) of this product in no way influenced my opinion in this review. This post may contain affiliate links. If you click through and make a purchase, I may receive a commission (at no additional cost to you.)  Any and all commissions I receive helps me to support my local battered women’s shelter.

 

I received for review two amazing iron’s from the kind folks at Oliso.  Since I am the proud owner of the Oliso (full size) Smart Iron you can refer to my original review by clicking here!  It’s packed with features you won’t find in any other iron on the market today.

I have found out over the years that buying cheap disposable irons is not the most economical or sensible option.  Those cheap disposable (as I call them) irons don’t reach the proper temperature to remove wrinkles or press seams as well as a Oliso iron.  Invest in a better quality iron and you will have it for many years of service.

With five full size iron options to choose from one will be right for your needs.  For comparison of all five models to go https://www.oliso.com/smartiron

That being said I was so excited to receive their new M2 Pro Mini Iron for review.  This adorable little powerhouse comes in yellow or pink and with 1000 watts of power can perform as well or better than many irons on the market today.

 

 

This M2 Pro Mini is perfect for quilters or sewers as it’s the perfect size to get into tight places when pressing sewing projects.  I know first hand about sewing projects as I have been sewing since I was a child.  Unfortunately with all that I have on my plate these days I don’t get to sew as often as I’d like but when I do I will most certainly be using my Oliso M2 Pro Mini Iron from now on.

This M2 Pro Mini is the perfect travel iron.  It has features (see video below) that many full size irons do not offer, such as the “blast of steam” feature, which is great for securing down or making a crisp seams in garments.  It can also be used in an upright position for steaming out wrinkles from curtains, clothing with embellishments such as sequins or pearls, or items with appliques.

The video below was made by the Oliso company.  I was going to make a demo video but quite honestly I couldn’t have made one as well as the Oliso company did.  I decided that watching their professional video would give you the best information on the M2 Pro Mini Iron.

(Just click the arrow button and the video will play.  For some reason it doesn’t show up in the post but it will play the entire video once you click the arrow. Here is where you will find the answer to your BONUS QUESTION.)

Features: 

  • Solemate™ : Made of flexible + high temperature silicone, allows you to place Me face down while ironing and quickly store away
  • Built-in hook: With power cord tether for easy storage
  • 1000w:  Heats up in seconds.
  • Universal Voltage: Easily switch between 220/240V + 110/120V ideal for travel.
  • Diamond Coated Ceramic Solepate : Maintains even heat and effortlessly glides over fabrics.
  • 1-touch steam control: Gives you 2 steam settings: horizontal burst + vertical burst.
  • Ergonomic Design: Snugly fits into the palm of your hand and has weight-balanced for precision movement and minimal strain on your wrist.
  • 180° Pivot Cord:  Pivot for both right + left hand use and stays safely out of your way.
  • Detailer Tip: My super-sharp detailer gets into the smallest seams and corners you never thought possible.
  • Fabric Selector:Evenly distributes the ideal heat for synthetics + wool + cotton.
  • 3 Year Warranty:Enjoy peace of mind with a 3 Year Warranty.

Copper Chef Wonder Cooker Review A++++!

 

I had the pleasure of reviewing the new Copper Chef Wonder Cooker this weekend. You all know how much I love my Copper Chef products and this one is no different. I purchased this product myself for the purpose of this review.  It was not provided to me by the company.

This versatile product will replace many of your cooking appliances and the need for multiple-pot cooking.

The 14-in-1 Wonder Cooker replaces your deep or shallow roasting pan, crockpot, double roaster, bakeware pan, casserole pan, deep fryer, steamer, crisper, slow cooker, electric skillet, electric grill, chafing serving dish – even a grill pan with authentic grill marks!

The nonstick coating makes for easy clean-up!

With a 5 out of 5 star review this is an excellent choice for any cook whether beginner or professional cook.

With so many options for cooking my husband decided to make a turkey (for Mother’s Day) to try out my Wonder Cooker.

This versatile cooker went from oven to stove top with no issues.  My husband baked the turkey breast in the oven and then I used the drippings to make a gravy on the stove top.  Both were extremely successful.  My husband is now sold on the Wonder Cooker.

It’s large capacity handled this 11 pound turkey breast with ease and room to spare.

Features:

  • Gigantic 9 Qt. Capacity – Deep Enough For 16 Enchiladas or a 15 lb Turkey!

A Special Mother’s Day Gift!

I received a sample (as described below) to conduct my review.  All opinions stated in this post are truthful and mine alone.  Receiving a sample(s) of this product in no way influenced my opinion in this review. 

 

This year is my daughter-in-law’s first Mother’s Day and I wanted to get her something special to remember the day.

I racked my brain on what I could purchase and everything just seemed too mundane.  Sure I could send her flowers and a card but I wanted something more, a gift with meaning.

I thought that a personalized gift with the baby’s name and or date of birth would be a wonderful keepsake and so I set out on a mission to find the perfect one for her.

I know that personalized gifts can take up to 6 weeks to receive and I didn’t have that much time so I decided to check out Etsy.

I found the most adorable shop on Etsy called Gracefully Made Jewelry located in the USA.  They have some beautiful personalized items for all occasions and they have a large selection of jewelry that could be personalized for Mother’s Day!

I chose this beautiful “Washer Necklace!”

 

 

Although the necklace is only listed in “14K Gold Filled” the kind folks at Gracefully Made Jewelry were able to make this in silver for me as my daughter-in-law is partial to silver and white gold.

They have a selection of “pet jewelry” as well that can be customized.

 

 

With a large selection of bracelets, necklaces, there is something for every budget with items start at $14.00 and your purchase ships free inside the USA.

Normal turn around time for a personalized item from Gracefully Made Jewelry is two weeks.

Last date to order to arrive before Mother’s Day would be April 28th.

However if you are not needing a gift for Mother’s Day bookmark their site for future reference.  I know you will be as pleased with your personalized piece as I am with mine.

 

 

The kind folks at Gracefully Made Jewelry would like to give one random winner their choice of a piece of custom jewelry as the prize for this giveaway.

Contest runs from Friday, April 24, 2020 (midnight) to Friday, May 1, 2020 (11:59 EST)

Morrocan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner Review – I love it!

This review is NOT a sponsored post.  I did not receive these products for free, I purchased them.

As I have mentioned in the past my daughter-in-law is a licensed cosmetologist and who I go to for many suggestions on hair products.

I have color treated hair, a double process of color (to hide my grey roots and highlights).  I try to change up my hair products frequently as I will notice that many times if I use the same product for months and months my hair will stop responding to it’s effects.

So when my hair started feeling dry from my other shampoo and conditioner I asked Ariel for a suggestion and this is what she recommended.

These are professional products and unfortunately cannot be found in a drug store.  However they are available to the public (see the links below) and I would highly recommend you try this line.  It has made a tremendous difference in my hair texture after just a few applications.  Not to mention is smells amazing and you will love the results.

The line is called MorrocanOil and it comes in a variety of formulas, one that will best suit your hair type.  You can see the entire line of products here!

Since my hair was feeling dry Ariel and I choose the Hydrating line for me.  You may want to try a different formula.

Morrocan Hydrating Shampoo

Morrocan Hydrating Conditioner

I was a bit concerned that the products would make my hair greasy but they did not.  After the first application my hair felt like silk.

I highly recommend you give this line a try if your hair is color treated and feeling a bit dry or if you just want to change up your products for better results.

Here is the description from the manufacturer:

Product Description

Say goodbye to dry. Rich in nutrients and gentle enough to use daily, Moroccanoil Hydrating Shampoo brings life back into dry, dehydrated hair. Infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil to improve hair health and Vitamin A and Red Algae to combat free radicals.

How to Use

Massage throughout wet hair and scalp, adding more water to activate a rich, luxurious lather from the concentrated formula. Rinse thoroughly until water runs clear. Repeat as necessary.

Benefits

  • Helps protect and maintain hair’s natural moisture balance
  • Full of nutrients, including antioxidant-rich argan oil

Top 5 Toys To Buy Your New Baby!

As many of you know my grandson was born last August.  I’m having a great time buying him all kinds of things including clothing and toys.

I wanted to share my experience with the toys I have purchase for him so far and how pleased we are with them.

Alilo Smarty Bunny Shake & Tell Musical Toy Rattle – recommended for children up to 2 years of age.

This adorable toy is not just your typical rattle it has pre-loaded music, bedtime stories, and 66 kinds of rattle sounds include musical instrumentanimal soundsbellnature sound and so on to make learning fun for your children.

Alilo bunny is made from drop-resistant ABS plastic which is 30 times stronger than a regular plastic. The soft silicone ears are safe for infant chewing and grasping. With a Lithium rechargeable battery and charging cable, Alilo bunny can lasts up to 4 hours.

This toy is a must buy!  You can find all the information on this toy here!

 

Fisher-Price Deluxe Kick ‘n Play Piano Gym– recommended for children up to 2 years of age.

This toy has proven to be an invaluable one for several stages of the baby’s development.  I purchased this toy for Matthew when he was four month’s old.  At that stage it is recommended for engaging and stimulate their senses. Little ones can lie on the back and enjoy 20 minutes of continuous playful music, lights, and sounds.

At six month old he was able to kick and light up the keyboard, he loved it.  At ten months he was sitting up on his own and was able to enjoy the full experience of the Fisher Price Deluxe Kick ‘n Play Piano Gym.

Matthew is now eleven months old and he loves the detachable keyboard. It’s one of his favorite toys.

This item is a must buy! You can find more information on this item here!

GUND Animated Peek-A-Boo Bear – recommended for children 1 year and up.

Even though this toy is recommended for children one year of age and up I felt with adult supervision it would be okay to purchase it for my grandson.  He loves to play peek-a-boo and would get hysterical each time we would play it with him.  When I saw this bear I knew I had to purchase it for him. Gund plush toys have been around for more than 100 years and has an outstanding reputation so I never once hesitated to purchase this toy.  He has enjoyed many hours of play with this bear and will continue to do so for many more years.

This adorable bear recites one of six different phrases while animated mouth and arms recreate peek-a-boo game. It features a satin-accented blanket which goes up and down to hide the bear’s face playing peek-a-boo automatically.  It’s made from a soft, huggable material and a surface-washable construction for easy cleaning. 

This toys is a must buy as well!  You can find more information about this toy here!

Fisher-Price Learn with Me Zebra Walker– recommended for children 6 months or older.

Now at eleven months old Matthew is starting to pull himself up and I’m sure will be attempting to walk soon.  This Fisher Price Learn With Me Zebra Walker helps foster balance and coordination, and gives motor skills a healthy workout. The easy-grasp handle and stable 4-wheel base help your baby balance better and make beginning steps a little less wobbly.

I loved the fact that is was also a busy toy with activities help build fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. And the bright colors, lights, music and phrases help give important senses like sight and hearing a big boost.​

In my opinion this is a must buy as well! You an find more information on this toy here!

 

My First Hess Toy Truck – recommended for children of all ages.

My husband saw a commercial for this toy right after Matthew was born and bugged me until I ordered it.  It took some time to come but when it did I can tell you how pleased we were that we purchased it.  This adorable toy is unlike the traditional Hess Trucks that are made of hard plastic.  This one is a soft plush toy made of a soft durable fabric that can be wiped clean.  You just have to squeeze it to activate the lights and sounds available in the toy.  It contains 2 Sing-along songs: “Wheels on the Truck” and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”  It has eleven (11) LED lights that work in flashing or steady modes.  It can serve as a night light to keep your child company at night as well.

The toy requires tree (3) AAA batteries which are included.  It came with a 2020 commemorative year license plate and personalizeable keepsake detachable gift tag.
