Product Review: Sentry Call Block II

Many of you asked me to post this review and information. I cannot tell you how much this little box is worth its weight in gold. My son took ours offline for a day once because he was working on our incoming Verizon network and we were swamped with calls as late as 10:00 at night. I was so angry!

For years were were plagued with 10-20 calls a day – yes, a day – from solicitors and robocalls for everything from selling windows to, “Congratulations you just won a vacation!” (which we all know is not the case). These calls drove me nuts; all I did all day long was stop what I was doing to run to the telephone, thinking it was an important call. I tried everything to stop them…do not call list, blocking specific numbers through our carrier…nothing worked. We have Verizon for our home phone service and they do have a feature that will allow you to block up to 10 telephone numbers, but as soon as I would add those 10, 10 more would start calling. If I took one number off the list to put another one on, that other number would start calling again – I was at my wit’s end.

Qupid Bootie and Boot Review

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 of these products. 

Anyone who knows me personally can tell you I have a shoe addiction.  I must own over 100 pairs of shoes, sandals, and boots combined.  That being said I don’t like to spend a lot of money on my shoes because styles come and go.  That is why I love fresh and cutting edge designs by Qupid.  Their designs are well within any budge range and their shoes and boots are well made to last you year after year.

Being a Qupid brand lover previously and owning several of their styles I cannot tell you how excited I was to work with them on this review.

The kind folks at Qupid sent me two amazing styles from their recent fall collection. The “Nero-11X Black Embroidered Bootie” which sells for $46.00 and the “Zinc-01 Taupe Knee High Back Lace“ over the knee boot that sells for $49.00.

Each of these amazing styles is the hottest thing in boots today. Similar styles to the “Nero-11X “ bootie with it’s embroidered floral design and “Zinc-01“ over the knee boot were seen walking the runways at New York fashion week time after time this year.

Each style can be worn with jeans, dress pants, skirts, or dresses they are so versatile.  I have paired each boot with a pair of black leggings and a top for you to see how easy they go with any fashion combination you may want to wear.

 

The Nero-11X is of faux man-made suede material with a 2.25 inch stacked heel. I am in love with this bootie. It has a very comfortable fit and I manage to stay in it all day long without having any discomfort.  The Nero-11X comes in black and taupe in sizes 5 to 10.

 

The Zinc-01 is an over the knee style boot. It is constructed of faux man-made suede material with a 3.50 inch heel.  I like the heal height of this boot as it’s not difficult to walk in even for someone my age.  The fabric is so comfortable; it feels like you have cozy slippers on your entire leg.  Easy to get on and off this boot has a 9” zipper on the side of the boot.  The Zinc-01 comes in a variety of color choices in sizes 5 to 10. It even comes in a beautiful embroidered version of this same boot.

So be sure to checkout all the wonderful shoes and boots from Qupid at www.qupid.com and use the code SHOELOVER at the checkout for a 15% discount.

As many of you know I am a licensed manicurist and hold an active license in the state of New Jersey. I try to keep current with new products through my trade publications, but this one slipped right by me.

This was my first time trying a Chill Zone product. I was not familiar with this line, so when the kind folks at Chill Zone agreed to send me some samples of their products, I was more than happy to give them a try.

They came beautifully packaged (see photo below). It was a nice surprise to open the box and find that they were packaged with such care.

I must admit I’m no beauty expert but I do love to try new products as they reach the market.  I have tried everything from drug store products to high end designer products and for me the high end designer products are just not worth the extra money.  Now you may not agree and I respect that but here is my take on make up and how I decide what to buy.

First and foremost I do my research before I buy any product.  I read reviews and ask around for suggestions.  I also visit stores like Sephora where the staff is extremely knowledgeable about all things beauty and I ask for advice.

Review: Hilton Hotel, Ocean City, Maryland

Disclosure: I received a discounted room rate in exchange for my review for this blog post.  All opinions stated in this post are truthful and mine alone.  Receiving a discount in no way influenced my opinion in this review.

This is not my first review for a Hilton Hotel nor is it my first for the Hilton in Ocean City, Maryland.  My husband and I do not travel a lot but when we do we insist on staying at a Hilton family hotel.  That includes Hilton Hotels, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton, Curio – A Collection by Hilton, DoubleTree by Hilton, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, Embassy Suites by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn by Hilton, Tru by Hilton, Homewood Suites, Home2 Suites by Hilton and Hilton Grand Vacations.

Our recent stay at the Hilton Hotel on 3200 Baltimore Avenue in Ocean City, Maryland, did not disappoint.  This amazing hotel has all the comforts of home.  Every room has a magnificent breathtaking view of the ocean from your private balcony. This is an actual photo that I took from our balcony.

The rooms are spacious and immaculately kept, you will thoroughly enjoy your stay.

The staff is extremely accommodating and will attend to your every need with a smile.  The manager (Kristin Woodward) is a gem.  She makes sure that your stay is one that will make you want to return year after year (like we do.)

Each room has a kitchen efficiency with a fully functioning range, microwave, refrigerator, automatic dishwasher and sink, just in case you desire to cook and eat in your room.  However, room service is available from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM each day.

 

The spacious powder rooms are fit for a king or queen with Jacuzzi tubs and double bowl sinks.

 

The hotel is 100% non-smoking, including all guest rooms and public areas. Accepted Payment Options include American Express, Carte Blanche, Diner’s Club, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.

Take advantage of some amazing room rates now that prime season is over.  You will be amazed at how reasonable the rates are this time of year at the Hilton Hotel in OCMD.  Most businesses are open year round in OCMD so there is plenty of fine dinning in and outside the hotel.  However, some businesses (a small percentage) are only open on the weekends after prime season is over.  So check with the tourist bureau for a full list of attractions that are open year round.

Be sure to check out the breakfast feast offered at the 32 Palm Restaurant inside the hotel.

 

Worried about indulging too much while on vacation – no worries the Hilton has a complimentary full service fitness center.

 

These are just some of the amenities that are offered at the hotel (I have altered the list to accommodate what is available after prime season ends. However if you visit the hotel during prime season there are more amenities available to guests such as adult and kiddie outdoor pools, etc.)

Product Review: Remington T-Studio Pro Series Thermaluxe Hair Setter Model H9100 PLUS 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.)

I have the most stubborn hair on the planet.  It has a mind of it’s own and for years I have tried every styling product and every styling appliance to get curls – nothing works.  I have a closet full of assorted brands and sizes of curling irons and even though they may work for some they don’t work well for me.  Any time I wanted to get a little curl into my hair I would always go back to my tried and true 20+ year old (and I’m not joking about the age of this hot curler set) hot rollers.  This thing is ancient but it still works and I still rely on it in a pinch.

So when the folks at Remington asked if I would give their new Pro Series Thermaluxe Hair Setter a try I was more than happy to oblige.

My old hot curlers – remember these?

vs.

The new Remington Pro Series Thermaluxe Hair Setter!

 

The setter heated up quickly, in approximately 90 seconds – that was fast.  My old setter took really long to reach the correct temperature.

As you can see the design of this Remington Pro Series Thermaluxe Hair Setter is much different than my old hot curlers.  The base has a new sleek design that takes up less room than my old setter.  It contains 20 ceramic heated rollers with clips, 12 large (1¼”) and 8 medium (1”) rollers, enough to create a whole head of curls in no time.  The setter has “dual heating technology” which allows clips to heat as well.  Heated clips allow heat to penetrate the hair from the outside while the roller heats hair from the inside.  This technology provides maximum heat transfer onto the hair and sets the curl faster and holds it longer.  Curlers will retain their heat for approximately fifteen (15) minutes after leaving the base. As a bonus included in the box was a set of three (3) hair clips.

What is Thermaluxe?

This advanced thermal technology optimizes heat levels to prevent damage and quickly deliver a 24-hour hairstyle for your 24/7 lifestyle!

Spectrum Brands (Remington) is so confident in this product they offer a limited four (4) year warranty.  They also offer a no-nonsense 60-day money back guarantee.  If for any reason you are not satisfied with the product you can contact them within 60-days of your purchase for a refund.
