Bestbuy brings you NEST to connect your home to you!

Ok so this has got to be the most innovative thing I have ever used.  I received a Nest Thermostat from BestBuy and using it I was a bit confused but now I really like it.  First of all it learns my habits.  I love that it gives me the temperature outside based on my zip code as well.  I can take a glance at it and it will give me the daily update on the thermostat itself. I also no longer need to worry about batteries dying in it because this one does not require them.  Another really awesome thing is when I change the air temperature to a lower setting it tells me what time it will return it to the normal preference for the home.  It is so simple to use and because it learns, it prevents my children from  messing the temperature up and I come home to it running non stop, or being too cold, or being too hot. Also, it will tell you how long it has ran that day as well.  I am excited to see that because it means that instead of it running on autopilot like the others I have had in the past, it will run based on need and so far is only running half of the time that my old one did.  We have noticed it doesn't need to kick on nearly as much and the home is still at a very comfortable temperature.  So what is this thing? Allow me to show you!

This is how it looks when it is being used.  When no one is near it, the Nest goes dark. It senses someone near it and it will turn on and light up so you can see the temperature. When you see the leaf it means it is at a energy saving temperature.

Away mode as you can see will allow Nest to go into a temperature saving mode until you turn it back onto Home mode.  This device is going to pay for itself in the savings. The great thing about this device is you can control it from your cell phone using the Nest App.  You can learn more about it using the Fact Sheet.
Here is my thermostat and you can see just how nice it looks as well.

Nest Learning Thermostat :

  • This is the new 3rd generation version, which is thinner, sleeker in design, and allows for a bigger, crisper display than the prior 2nd generation version.
  • To get the most out of your Nest, connect to your existing home’s Wi Fi network and download the free app from iTunes or GooglePlay – this allow you to manage your home’s temp from your smartphone, tablet or laptop, even when you're miles away
  •  Never come home to a cold house. You can easily turn down the temp when traveling, or set it to warm up your home before you come home
  • You can set it to accommodate your schedule and temperature preferences
  • Or, do not set preferences – within a week, the Nest learning thermostat starts programming itself. It learns your habits and adjusts automatically, regulating your home’s temperature based on your schedule 
  •  In independent studies, the Nest saved an average of 10-12% on heating and 15% on cooling bills.
  • Nest provides your energy usage, tracking how much you've used and provides tips that will help you conserve. Make an energy-saving temperature adjustment and the Nest Leaf will notify you immediately.
  • Some local utility companies offer rebates.
  • Nest provides alerts and reminders for peace of mind: it monitors your heating/cooling equipment, and tells you if anything is not working correctly. You can also be alerted if your home's temperature goes above or below limits you set.
  • Nest also works with Nest products, such as the Nest Cam and Protect, and other home automation devices

Also during this time, Best buy wanted to make sure we have the best internet possible and set me up with a really awesome Netgear router!  This has actually made my home more connected by alleiviating dead spots.  I had issues with my old modem/router combination. I could not stream my tv station from the Roku, or the PS3 without a lot of stopping and buffering.  I love how the new router has a dead zone terminator. I plugged it into my bedroom and since then the internet has been amazing! No more worries and all of our connected devices work wonderfully.

This router is LARGE and in charge!  It definately takes up more space then my old one but it is totally worth it because the benefits are amazing.  You can learn more about the Netgear router on the fact sheet.

There are several options to expand your home into the Nest family.  How would you like to be able to monitor your home security?  What about the ability to see what lights are on? Be able to make changes remotely?  All of this can be accomplished with Nest.  So visit your local Best buy today and check out the displays and see just what you are missing. For me, I am a fan of Nest and can not wait to add more to my home. This will save me tons of money and will pay for itself. Isnt your home worth the investment?  I think it is.

Slimquick Pure Drink Mix Review

Hi ladies!
We all want to lose more weight right? I mean if we have weight to lose that is. But has it ever been as easy as just taking a drink of water? Well with this SlimQuick Pure mix, it really is that easy.  During my testing period I lost a total of 18 lbs. This was over 4 weeks. Bear in mind I am diabetic, I have lupus, and celiac disease that affects my metabolism and body from being able to lose weight. It has taken me 2 years to be able to go back to work and I worked hard to find natural products that worked to get me started on this path. This is one of them that I like very much!

I tried this on and off for multiple weeks to see if I could tell the difference when I was drinking this and when I was not and let me tell you I really could.  First of all this product does very well on appetite suppression. It also gave me a lot of energy. I work 12 hours shifts and when I am doing that, I get tired after about half the shift. When I am drinking Slimquick, I do not feel that tiredness nearly as much. I have to be careful when I drink it because it you are drinking it about 5 hours before you plan on going to bed it can help you stay awake vs allowing you to sleep.  In my case that is easy to go over if I am not careful as I work from 6am-6:30pm. I usually go to bed at about 9pm.

Basically this is a drink mix. I drink lots of water and so this was great for me. It tastes like real strawberries and not the artificial kind like you taste in candy but really like infused water fresh berry flavor. You can taste a little of the vitamins in it but it is really not unpleasant at all!  You are to drink one packet in water the first day and then 2 packets the second day. I adjusted as I needed to. On days that I did not use this product I was more hungry. (12 hours of non stop moving is a good way to work an appetite up) and was eating frequently but, I also eat healthy. When I work I tend to eat light foods like hummus or chicken salad with a mix of veggies to dip into it and some fruit. But I also avoid gluten. I have been eating this way for several years so that is not the reason for my weight loss. This product made a huge difference in the amount of weight I lost in a small amount of time. I generally can lose up to 5-7 Lbs a month without this product. I do between 6-8 miles of walking during work and generally 1-3 daily.  This is accumulated over the course of the day and is the only real exercise I get as I am on the go. I wanted to be sure that this was out there because I do not sit around and even then I try to get up and do activity for several hours a day.  Everyone is different. I have been focusing on gaining more muscle to help boost my metabolism.

Superfood Bundle! 3-Pack of Spirulina, Acerola & Nutritional Yeast Review


This superfood bundle I recieved was an intersting mix from Sari Foods.  The acerola was great in smoothies and you barely noticed any change in flavor. I love that you get such a great source of Vitamin C and its so good for you too. Vitamin C helps boost immune system and so helps you stay well and burn off infection or illness. This is great for your daily additive in foods or in my case smoothies. You can purchase any of these great items HERE.

The Nutritional Yeast was pretty amazing. My children loved it. It has a nutty, cheesey flavor and I used it in soups, stwes, on spaghetti and so much more and they loved it. I even had them taste it without it being in the mix of food and they still liked it. They said it was like parmesan cheese. So I love that something with high nutrient value was liked by my children.

You can find more information about Nutritional Yeast below.


This delicious salty, creamy, nutty, cheese-tasting superfood can be sprinkled on just about everything! No restraint necessary.

Most nutritional yeast products are fortified with excessive amounts of synthetic vitamins to increase the nutritional count. At Sari Foods Company, we believe that synthetic, man-made vitamins are not only unnecessary, but that they can be harmful and toxic to our bodies, causing nutrient imbalances and forcing our kidneys and liver to work overtime while our bodies struggle to absorb them.

We can promise you this: the abundance of vitamins & nutrients plus the delicious cheese flavor found in this bag of molasses-grown nutritional yeast are 100% whole food based and naturally occurring - nothing synthetic here - just as nature intended!

Our nutritional yeast is naturally comprised of 50% protein (a complete, bioavailable and vegan source), over 20% fiber, contains all 18 amino acids and 15 different minerals (including iron, selenium and zinc) as well as a natural vitamin B-complex and Beta-glucans (known for their extreme immune enhancing properties).

Now for the Spirulina...That is not for the weakhearted. It has a very strong taste. I used it in my shakes and smoothies and it turned them very green, It has a flavor very much like a strong kale. Bitter and strong however if you use very little it is not bad. If I were to use this as a source of daily use, I would honestly suggest it in a veggie cap form since the flavor is very strong. I did like that I got full size bags of all 3 superfoods to try. You can read more about this below.

Spirulina is the most nutrient dense food known to humankind, contains more protein content than any other food source and is the most planet-friendly source of protein!

This bag of planet-friendly organic spirulina is comprised of more than 60% protein and is a natural source of bioavailable iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, beta-carotine, B12, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, antioxidants and essential amino acids (GLA, Omega 3, 6 & 9’s). Spirulina has over 100 types of vitamins & nutrients - more than any other type of grain, plant, or herb - and they work together to perform miracles in the human body.

How to review items with or without a Blog!

So people have been wanting to know how I get such awesome products to review. I can share some of that here.

 First of all, do not be greedy!

Some of the favorite sites of mine are below.

 These product sites that offer the great items at a free or discounted cost are smaller companies trying to get their name out there. My favorite and most trusted site is  AmzReviewTrader this site is amazing and has everything you can imagine to check out and review. What they ask is that you review your items within 10 days of receiving them.  Another thing to point out is that Amazon Prime is worth the $99 a year because if you are going to be ordering lots of products to review...shipping can be costly. Just bear in mind the normal cost of shipping on smaller items is about $3-5.99 each.  Think about that over the cost of a year.  20 products would easily cost more then your Prime membership.  I have done several hundred over the last 6 months. Believe me. The price is worth it. You also get several perks to being a prime member as well. Books, movies and more. Check into it if you are serious about reviewing this is what you want to budget into your yearly expenses.

Another very HUGE statement. When you review an item you MUST include a disclosure. It is the law.  "I received this item in exchange for my honest review for free or discounted price."  Pretty straight forward and must be done.

Also, YOU CAN NOT EVER sell an item you get for review on amazon or anywhere else.  It is perfectly OK to get a review item and then gift it to family and friends. But you can not sell them. It hurts you and the seller.  Remember, even if it is FREE to you, it's not to the seller and you are being compensated for reviewing the item by being allowed to keep it. Think of it this way. If the item you are reviewing is worth $50 dollars and you paid nothing... But you write a review of 4-6 sentences about what you think about it, or even longer...It might only take a few moments of your time, but that feedback is golden to the seller. So please do not be skimpy and not be honest. Make sure you use the product and actually tell about it. Does it smell nice, is it the same as what you see in the image? Does it fit right? Did you break out from it? Lots of things to keep in mind. Pictures and video reviews mean the world to sellers and will help you to gain new products.

The more you review items the lower your Amazon rating goes. THIS IS GOOD! It means they value your views and you are helping others to purchase items. Sellers can see the reviews and any pics/vids added via Amazon Tracker.  So, be good to your sellers and they will be very good to you.

If you have a blog, then use it as well. more traffic for them means more opportunities for you!

Social media is amazing and since most of us have smartphones now, the opportunities are endless.

So if you are ready to begin..... check the links above and remember these cardinal rules....


  1. Never share a promo code EVER!
  2. Contact the seller if you ever have a problem with a code unless otherwise instructed. (For instance in a review group where the admins handle codes and go between with sellers and reviewers)
  3. Review the item in a timely manner (10 days is the average)
  4. If you cannot give a 4-5 star review contact the seller or admin (if in a group) to let them know why this is so they can improve on it. Most sellers want that feedback to make better products. They cannot fix it if you do not tell them. Many will replace the item if its a product issue or change and then offer the new product once its changed to you to do a different review on and see what you think about it.
  5. Be honest. If you feel that the item was shoddy or not a good item give real detailed reasons why this is. Be fair in the review and be sure to look at the item description because oftentimes low reviews happen because a reviewer expects more from an item then what is actually promised.  If it is an inexpensive item normally do not expect it to be the same standard as the $200 alternative.
  6. Try to put at least one photo on the item if its applicable. (do the text review first let it give you a permalink before you add pics. Sometimes Amazon boots the review for adding pics at the same time.)
  7. Video reviews are great but keep them short and make sure you add a small text review as well.
  8. NEVER forget disclosures. Amazon will remove them and then you cannot fix the review.
  9. If you really love the product SHARE IT! pin it, tweet it, instagram it, and facebook it.
  10. Enjoy your products and plan for gifting, Christmas, Birthdays, Holidays and more!
Above all HAVE FUN!


The Joly Life back up and at em!

I wanted to apologise as to not having as much content going as normal. I recently started a new job and work 12 hour shifts and come home really hurting and tired because as most of you know, I have lupus and diabetes as well as a number of other health related issues. This was a new thing for me after working for 2 years to drop weight and get my health in better control to allow the mobility to go back to work. I still have a long way to go however, but i have been able to go back to work and that was a huge accomplishment. Do I hurt? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. So let me tell you why I can say this. I took a job working for the Macys Distribution Center. We are a direct to customer based warehouse. I work in Packing, which means if you order it, I and others will be safely packing it to head to your doorstep. However, I also work in other departments as well like Prep. In this area I am taking a vendor box like for instance Ralph Lauren, or Micheal Kors and sorting the items in the box out into separate boxes based on size, color, and things of that nature. One box at times can be split into over 140 boxes. So is it tedius...? Yep. But, I get to stay busy for 12 hours and if you know me and follow me, you know I do not sit idle for long. The one thing that makes this job totally worth it is the people we work with. The managers and co workers are amazing. We get thanked for working. Things we do are noticed and we get proper breaks. If we have health issues and have a problem, it is not brushed under the rug. For instance, my blood sugar dropped on me at work because my body wasnt used to the 12 hour shifts. I did something about it but was still feeling horrible and shaky. My manager could have been get back to your area and ignored me. ( I have had this happen before in other jobs) but instead, he said I will be back to check on you if you aren't back to me in 10 mins. He ended up with us sitting in his office talking while my body got more stable. That meant the world to me to know that he values me as a worker and respects that I have health problems and at that time I needed to get it better so I was not a risk to myself, others or in danger of conveyers. A lot of jobs wouldn't care. I can not say that for other places I have worked. When I go in I am ready to work, ready to bust my rear, and the reason is I see my managers working too. They answer questions and want to make everyone the best they can be and keep it peaceful and a great place to work. When we have a problem it is dealt with immediately and not left on the back burner. So anyhow, I am working weekends and Monday and Tuesday I usually am still pretty sore and swollen. Lupus hates this kind of work and my joints ache, but, I do it every weekend and its getting easier. I have been focusing more on Amazon reviews lately to get my numbers looking better and have more items to review and see what else I can show you that has worked for me. On a brighter note! I went to the Dr and a lot of the issues with my bloodwork last year have went to normal levels since I started doing the natural products and essential oils. I am still working on my diabetes but so far the other bad items have calmed down. I am still working hard. I would love it if you would share some posts that have been especially helpful to you over the last few years and bring new readers in because I have a slew of products to talk about and will be making more posts Mon-Thurs now that I am not completely worn out after my weekend work. I am starting to get used to this and ready to share what I have learned recently. So be ready. Thank you all! Tiffany

BestBuy SUHD 4K TV - Check out the Samsung SUHD Viewing Experience at Your Local Best Buy!

Best Buy has an awesome new TV to share with you all and I get to help them spread the word.  The New Samsung SUHD 4K TV brings to life the experience of anything you watch.  Its amazing quality makes the screen appear super lifelike in anything you are watching. I got to experience this awesome TV at my local Best Buy this weekend and let me tell you it is quite impressive!

I checked out what was going on in-store. My store did not have the new Jurassic World demo yet but still I got some amazing pictures. The quality is unbelievable. Check this out!

The one thing that really amazed me is that you can view this TV from any angle as you can see and the color is not distorted. I have seen in other large screen TV's that they tend to pale as you move to one side or the other. In this case I even checked ones that were much higher then myself and even from below the quality never falters.  This happens because of the all new Nano Crystal technology! The curved screen increases the depth of what you are watching make it appear more lifelike. To make it even easier to find what you enjoy watching, this is also a SmartTV.  The screen features a Peak Illuminator Pro for enhanced picture color and detail.  Improved black levels for better contrast and a greater sense of depth, 4X the resolution of HD and Smart View 2.0 that allows you to watch your TV on your mobile device.  Your media is also much faster with the Octa-Core Processor.

InstaNatural Essential Oils Review (Peppermint and Lemon)

I am a huge fan of Essential Oils. I was very excited to get a chance to try InstaNatural Essential oils as I love this brand and stand by it as a wonderful brand that is true to its customers and really knows what quality is about.  When I had a chance to review, I could not wait to try these great oils.

First of all, They are potent! When the box arrived I knew immediately what was in it even though those bottles were sealed nice and tight. You could smell the lemon and the peppermint right thru the packaging. I was a little worried initially that they had spilled. But it was just THAT strong.

These oils I have used to help with headaches by rubbing some peppermint around the temples and forehead, I have used them in my wax burners to let them go thru a room and help with sinus congestion. The lemon I have used with vinegar mix to help clean things in my home and freshen linens and curtains. There are so many uses for essential oils I could not possibly list them all however, if you do a fast google search you can find a number of great uses for them from cleaning, healing and more to pest control and repellants.  The best part of all is they are 100% Natural!

Can't get much better then that!  Essential oils are also great for aromatherapy and more!

What is your favorite essential oil? Please leave me a comment. Do you have a favorite blend?

Think about adding Instanatural Essential Oils to your arsenal of healing and theraputic concoctions. They are sure to please.  You can purchase them below.

Instanatural Essential Oils

There is now an Oil Infuser for sale as well.

If you love these and want to know more about the brand follow InstaNatural:

Pura d'or Hair & Body Care Review

Hi everyone.  I had an opportunity to review Pura d'or hair care products.  This particular set was to help with hair loss and to help increase hair strength.  With argon oil this great product worked wonders for me.  I have thyroid conditions that has caused my hair to be almost impossible to grow and it has been super thin as well. Now after using this product for several months I can see considerable changes in my hair and I will show you the images below.  These products are free of parabens, gluten and SLS and are all natural as well. What can beat that? How about REAL RESULTS!!!!  That is exactly what I got. Check out my pictures below and see for yourself.  I took extra time with this review just so that I could have good visible results for you all. In both images, no hair products, no hair treatments like straightener or anything like that and also no makeup. All natural, all real results.

Before Pur Do'r Shampoo. My hair was thin and straight.

After. It has gotten quite a bit longer, and its much thicker and fuller. It looks closer to how I looked in my early 20s and I am almost 33. My hair is alot closer to pre children thickness now.

One thing I can say also is that I have lost a lot less hair then I had been used to. My hair is much stronger and it is actually growing. I had my hair cut 3 years ago to my ears and it wouldn't grow much at all. Since using these hair care products I can say I am much happier now that I am not always cleaning hairballs out of my shower drain.  My hair feels a lot more healthy also as its not feeling dry and brittle anymore either.

They have a number 1 rating on Amazon and I can see why as the products clearly work and I am excited to have been a part of this review process to see the results first hand.

Pura D'or is a wonderful brand and you should check them out if you suffer any kind of thinning or weak hair.  You can VIEW PURA D'OR Products  and see for yourself just how amazing they are!

Vita Sciences Maxasorb Vitamin B12 Cream Review

Are you tired of taking B12 pills? What if you could get the same benefits but thru a cream?  That is exactly what Vita Sciences Maxasorb Vitamin B12 Cream is.  It is a pretty amazing product that goes on smooth and absorbs super fast.  It leaves no odor behind and works pretty fast. You can feel the B12 boost pretty quick also.  I happen to enjoy this particular easy to use B-12 Serum and will use it til its done and plan to order more as it really is super easy to use and doesn't interfere in my daily routine.

Each bottle holds a full 30 days supply and works very similar to how B-12 patches work.
Each application (2 Pumps) gives you 320 Micrograms of B-12, 120 micrograms of B3,and 10 Micrograms of folate.

Pretty great huh? I sure think so and it helps keep your energy level more balanced thru the day. It also helps to soothe, itchy, dried, irritated areas of skin from eczema, psoriasis and other skin issues. So if you suffer from these this is a product to try for sure!

This product also help with anti aging and wrinkle reduction. It also helps support the renewal of new skin cells so this can also be a great addition to your normal beauty regime.  If you want to know more and see what this great company has to offer you can follow them below.

Bait and switch on EBAY!!! BUYERS BEWARE!

Hello everyone. I just had an experience on Ebay that I would not want anyone to ever have to go thru like I just did.  I purchased 2 items. I will be posting the pics to show you that I paid for them and had a expected shipping date as well...

The seller refunded me and then sent me a message stating they had already done so as you can read in the above picture. Below is the refunds.

After the refunds were made, the notification i got from Ebay showed I needed to PAY for my items as you can see above.  So that made me check Paypal to make sure that my payments went thru. And that is how I discovered the refunds.

 The sellers store no longer shows the same listings I purchased. They removed them and reset them. Ebay was not able to find them to fix this because of the Bait and Switch.

As you can see in the first image and in this one, I was given a rushed apology after they already screwed me and knew it was done. I am beyond livid that this is allowed. As a jewelry designer, if I ever had a mistakely priced something I would still honor what was listed because that is my fault as a seller and I should have to take ownership for that problem. Not be like well lets cancel this order and you just dont get an item. Very bad business.

Here you can see others have had the same problem with this seller and they came back stating they were getting blackmailed.  Seems like alot of bait and switch going on and not wanting to honor thier prices.

My reply to them based on this ordeal... Just so that there is nothing to be misread here...

Then the seller decided to go into PAYPAL and refund my transaction that over rides the EBAY system and cancelled my orders without any disputes.  I just went thru 3 tiers of Ebay escalations about this and apparently if you are a seller and have done the agreement of seller protocal they are supposed to contact the buyer to ask if it can be cancelled but if they go direct to paypal and refund it they can BYPASS this system and I am not the only one they have done this to.

Now mind you I get that people make mistakes. I also get the items are worth more, However when I have purchased items on Ebay before at a deep discount I expect things that are either irregular or maybe missing parts and for the price I was willing to deal with that.  But to have my orders cancelled and NO contact and then a lame excuse AFTER they bypassed Ebay protocal just upsets me to no end. I feel like I was played. Bait and switch. Lure your customers in with 8 items at $3 and then cancel those orders to jack the prices up. Bad bad business and BTW Ebay wont help you.  I went thru 3 kinds of escalations. And all told me that the seller went against Ebay regulations and would be shown in seller feedback for it. But I cannot even get to make feedback so, I am sharing with all of you so YOU also dont get duped by this seller.

The seller name is Bargainsopping.  And No I did not misspell that either. I should have known better when I read the name and it was plainly mispelled. But the pictures show it all and there they come.

Sorry to let you all know but Ebay apparently has let Sellers exploite the system now.


Sorry I been MIA.

Hello friends and followers,
I know I been MIA but I have been pretty sick for a few months and so blogging was really hard for me to do with as many siezures as I have had.  I am currently fighting a staph/mrsa infection in my leg after i had a reaction to neosporin.  So yet another thing I have be found to be allergic to. However, I have been keeping up with smaller reviews on Amazon. I will be moving some of them to the blog shortly as I have been really busy with the shorter reviews for amazon but havent had time to take pics and links and whatnot to make ful blog posts BUT I have lots of exciting items for you all to see.  Check my Amazon Profile to see what I have been up to.

There has been a trip to Massachusettes, and then back home, got Gena here and that was a really long drive especially with lupus as my hip decided to fall out of place during the drive.  And now kids are out of school for the summer.  So things are even more busy here.  But anyhow I wanted to share what has been going on and also give you a heads up, I will be writing a great post for @bestbuy and you have got to be ready to check this.

I also have been super busy cutting stones as normal and so if you are interested in seeing my new items for sale from +Jtcreationz you totally need to go to my album and see what you want.

Here is my Facebook page for JTCREATIONZ
Albums with Items for sale.

I also will work on custom orders.

And if you have computers that are running rough I can handle that too. I have been laid up dealing with my legs so I have extra time to do some computer work now.
Hit me up at Jtcreations Remote Computer Assistance.

I have beaten every price locally for computer repair and I have a 5 star review on my page. I also will barter if you have stone or jewelry supplies I can use for my business.

Talk to you all later!

Instanatural Dead Sea Mud Mask Review

Instanatural is a brand I just can not get enough of. Every product I have tried from them has become a person favorite and I love to spread the word.  The mud mask is really nice. it goes on smooth, It dries pretty quick and you can feel it tightening as it dries.

Dead sea mud is full of vitamins and minerals that are great for skin like magnesium, bromine, sodium, potassium, and calcium.  This is great for helping get rid of dead cells and brightens your skin also. It works hard to take toxins out of your body and clean acne. If you have excess oils or other impurities let this mask do its job and detox your face.

The other benefit of this mask is it can be used on other parts of the body and it can sooth muscle aches and pains. I have been using this mask on a sore on my leg as well to help pull the infection out of it and it has made a pretty big difference.

If you would like to get your hands on this great mask you need to check out Instanaturals Dead Sea Mud Mask.

You will not be sorry.  I have used and love these products for months now and got behind on several reviews becasue of my health issues. I am trying to get caught back up now to bring you all even more awesome products. Stay tuned!

You can also follow Instanatural as well.

Argan Oil Hair Mask Review

Argan oil is amazing.  This hair mask is even more amazing. I am a huge fan of instanatural products.I have pretty dry hair and sometimes it gets super oily. It never seems to want to work my way after shampooing. I have used many kinds of shampoos and herbal rinses and my hair seems to feel stripped or just over dry.  I was excited to try this hair mask out.

Here is more info about this Instanatural Argan Oil hair mask.

It is a deep conditioning treatment that is made to make dry damaged hair into softer and more shiney healthy hair.  It has restorative ingredients such as Argan oil, Japanese Green Tea and Amino Acid Comples, Coconut oil and Shea butter, Jojoba oil, avacado oil and B5.  This powerful blend works together get deep into the hair and nurish and hydrate your hair. It also helps to defend against heat damage and external agressors as well that would further damage your hair.

Not only myself but my friend Gena has tried this product as well as she has bleached and color treated hair.  We found that the mask adds considerable softness to our hair and in her case made her hair no longer feel like straw which was a big improvement over its normal condition as she colors often.

If you or someone you know is looking for a great way to get healthier hair in a simple mask that is gentle enough to be used weekly, this is definately the product for you.  It smells amazing and a little goes a long way so you will be able to use one container of it for a very long time.

How to use a hair mask?

1) Wet hair and wash
2) Rinse well
3) apply hair mask
4) I generally wash my body and shave while I let the mask sit for about 5 mins. You can leave it on longer.
5) Rinse mask out of hair thoroughly
6) Towel dry and style as usual and enjoy softer healthier hair!

Kindle Fire HD 6 Review

I recently got a chance to review a Kindle Fire HD 6 and several books.  I was super excited about this opportunity and I am a big fan of ebooks.  Generally I read them on my computer or Ipad, or my cell phone, but the downside is sometimes those apps update and then I get a white screen and im stuck not being able to read my ebooks further.  How frustrating is that right? Well the Kindle Fire HD 6 is a power packed Ebook reader and tablet in one.  It has super fast browsing, apps, and of course the Kindle reader itself.  I love this Kindle. I can read my books, it knows where I leave off on each book unless I tell it to forget (YAY!) and I can seamlessly go back and forth to my apps like Facebook or Pinterest and then back to reading with little to no delay.  The color is vibrant. Games load super fast and it also has a nice camera. As you can see in the above images, I shot pics with and without flash so you can see just how bright and clear the display is!

I have been using this now for a week. My daughter is a huge fan of the games and I love that I have access to my entire Amazon account so all the books I have I can read and move on and off the cloud to save space on the device. Very nice!  I also purchased a case to make it nice and portable and keep it safe.

The other thing I love about this Kindle is that it is rated to withstand dropping from heights and pressure so I know this device will be around a very long time.  If you would like to get one today you can purchase one from Amazon and have it personalized for you and have your amazon account already added for you also. You can also purchase it as a gift where the reciever can add their account once they get it.  Lots of options and you will love the Silk Browser.  Super fast and will also allow FLASH. Not many tablets do that!

Do you love videos, apps, games, and more? This is definately the device for you.

Check it out and be sure to please let us know how you like the review. Also if you are an amazon user that loves Ebooks or an owner of a kindle. Tell us your thoughts.

Thank you so much.
