Oliso Smart Iron Model TG1600 Limited Edition Review & Giveaway

I had the pleasure of reviewing the Oliso Smart Iron Model TG1600 Limited Pink Edition recently. I have to tell you all that I enjoy ironing – yes I know I must be crazy but I actually do like to iron clothes.  Most mom’s today do not even own an iron but I am one of those people who feel my family is a reflection on me and if they go out of the house wrinkled then it’s my fault.  You may not agree but this is my personal feeling and has been for a long time.  I once had someone tell me I was there hero because I took great pains to iron my son’s play clothes from a very young age.  It’s just something I learned at an early age from my Mom and I continue ironing each week for my husband and I.

Cuccio Nail Products – Oh what fun I had! Review and Giveaway!

The kind folks at Cuccio (my absolute favorite nail products company) were kind enough to send me this box of goodies.  When it arrived I was overjoyed to try some old favorites (as well as some new so to be favorites) and I am having a blast trying each and every one of them.  Some I was very familiar with as I have used and recommended them for years and others are new to me so I will give you all an honest opinion of the new to me products.

I fell in love with this company and their products when I graduated from cosmetology school. They were the only company that was willing to send me samples of their products to try. I wanted to try as many product lines as possible so that I could give my honest opinion to my clients in recommending the good from the bad and Cuccio was the only company that was willing to send me anything.  I have never forgotten that.

Hurricane Spin Scrubber Review and Giveaway!

As many of you know I have had a really rough time with my heath these past few years. One of the things I suffer with is arthritis pain in my hands which makes it difficult some days to do my daily chores. I am a fanatic about cleanliness and no matter how much I am suffering I do my best to keep my bathrooms (all three of them) as clean as possible but it has become increasingly difficult to scrub due to the joint pain. I saw this product on an infomercial and thought wouldn’t it be great if it really works!  Well it does indeed!

I had the pleasure of reviewing the Hurricane Spin Scrubber recently and I must tell you all this product will be a life-saver for me. If you suffer with any type of issue with your hands you need this product.

The Hurricane Spin Scrubber did an amazing job of scrubbing the film left behind from body wash on my tile.  My husband insists on using body wash and no matter how quickly I remove the film from the tile it comes right back with his next shower. That film can be very difficult to remove especially from textured tiles like I have in my bathrooms but it was no problem for the Hurricane Spin Scrubber.

Spotlight on Women in Business: Betty Herbert – Rodan + Fields Skin Care Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing two of the Rodan + Fields skin care lines from my friend and consultant Betty Herbert.  Betty was kind enough to send me two kits:  Redefine and Redefine AMP MD.  These are the two kits that she recommended for my particular skin type and issues.

I have had a acne problem for years and I have tried everything on the market and continue to try every new product that comes out.  I’ve been to more dermatologist in my lifetime than most people visit their doctor when they are sick.  My parents both had skin issues so I got slammed from both sides of the family.  I’ve tried over the years prescription drugs for acne, pills, creams, gels you name it and nothing seems to cure it for good.  I guess it’s in my genes and there isn’t much I can do but keep my skin as clean as possible with a good regimen and control the acne as best I can. The over the counter type cleansers do nothing for me.  I have consulted with doctors, estheticians, holistic practitioners and tried every possible thing they have suggested.  Whatever I use seems to be a temporary fix but nothing (including prescription medication) has a lasting effect on my skin. My biggest issues is clogged pores.

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.

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.
