I was recently contacted to see if I would be interested in trying Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment by Pravana. After reading about the product, I was definitely interested.


Both my daughter and myself struggle with hair issues. For me, I have thick, dry hair that ends up with frizz, tangles and split ends. For my daughter, she has fine hair but a lot of it and it tangles so easily.

About Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment by Pravana

-100% Vegan and Gluten Free

-Contains no Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates

-Detangles, hydrates, equalizes hair porosity, protects hair during thermal styling, protects, repairs split ends, gives shine, eliminates static electricity, soothes skin, lessens effects of chlorine and defrizzes.

Using the product is easy. The product itself is a 2 phase. In order to use it, you must shake it up until the 2 colors combine into one solid color. Then you are ready to use. To apply, just spray onto damp hair and style as you normally would. You do not rinse this out.

The scent of this product isn't overbearing at all and smells really good. I have used this on my own hair and on my daughters hair.

For us both, it has worked great to detangle our hair. My daughter hates having her hair brushed because her hair gets so tangled up. Since using this product, the brush goes straight through. It also has given us both a lot of shine. Our hair looks much healthier than it did before.

For me personally, other than the shine and detangling, I have noticed that my split ends are less noticeable. Yes, they are still there but you can't see them as much as before. Due to it being Summer and the humidity is just insane some days, it has also greatly helped with frizz. My hair is not nearly as frizzy as it was.

Both my daughter and I have been happy with our results since trying the Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment by Pravana.

You can purchase this at Beauty Care Choices.

GIVEAWAY- One lucky reader will win their very own bottle of Nevo Intense Leave-In Treatment by Pravana (ARV $19)

+Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger #Review #pluslifeguard #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary product in order to facilitate this post. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest and my own but may vary from yours.


Most everyone owns a cell phone and it's especially an important device to have while on the go. In the case of a car accident or other emergency, it's important to be able to make a call to get help. But what happens when you need to use your cell phone while on the go and your battery is dead?



This is where having a portable charger comes in handy. I recently received a +Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger for review purposes. I received mine in the pink color.

I thought the overall packaging of the product was nice and compact. The device was packaged safe and sound within the box but was easy to take out without much hassle.

The contents of the box are the +Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger, Charging Cord for the charger, instruction booklet and for a limited time, a small lightning charging cable. I thought the inclusion of the lightning charging cable was a nice touch. I know for me personally, I keep all charging cords in my home and don't have any extras to keep in my purse etc while on the go, so to have an extra one, is great. While it comes with a lightning charging cord, the charger can be used on other devices other than Apple brand. It can be used on many Android devices as well.



The charger itself is a bit heavier than I expected it to be. It's definitely not super heavy but it's got a nice weight and you can tell it's well made. 

Using the portable charger is simple. Just make sure the charger itself is charged, which can be done via the USB cable provided in the box, and simply plug in your cell phone or other device and you're done. Your item starts to charge instantly. I keep the +Lifeguard Mini Portable Charger in my purse when I am out and about and need a charge, I can just pull it out and charge my phone.

The only issue that I have with the product is that when it's charging a device, it does light up blue but there is no real way to tell how much charge the portable charger itself has. It would be nice to know if the portable charger itself was running out of charge so you could recharge it. Other than that, I feel it's a great portable device that doesn't take up much space and is great for on the go.

You can purchase this on Amazon.com

Rethink Your Sports Drink with BODYARMOR #Review #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate this post. I will also be compensated for this post. Any and all opinions are honest and my own but may vary from yours.



My daughter is involved in a lot of activities through out the year and now that Spring is here, they have increased. Along with the activities, we are always going to the park so she can get out her energy. Between her activities and the park, she gets extremely thirsty and needs to keep hydrated. I know that most sports drinks are filled with artificial things but there was really little else available as an option. Until now...


I was recently asked to review a new sports drink and give my thoughts. BODYARMOR is a sports drink available in a few different flavors that changes your thoughts about sports drinks.

BODYARMOR sports drinks are naturally colored and sweetened, contain vitamins, electrolytes and contain coconut water.


We received a 6 pack for this review. One each of Fruit Punch, Orange Mango, Strawberry Banana, Tropical Punch, Lemon Lime and Mixed Berry. There is also a 7th flavor of Grape.

I admit that when I saw coconut water was an ingredient, I was worried about the taste. I have tasted coconut water on its own and did not care for it. Both my daughter and I taste tested these on various days during various activities. We both loved each one. They taste amazing and are sweet but not overly sweet. BODYARMOR contains more potassium-packed electrolytes than any other sports drink on the market and is low in sodium.

The fruit flavors are rich and each flavor tastes exactly like they should. Our favorite hands down was the Fruit Punch variety. My daughter enjoyed these after going to the park and playing and after some of the activities she participates in. She said she felt instantly hydrated and felt great after drinking these. I agree! They really quench your thirst.


You can find BODYARMOR at Target, Wegmans and other retailers across the country.

You can download a coupon HERE if you're interested in trying BODYARMOR for yourself!

I would recommend BODYARMOR sports drinks for anyone who is an athlete or even just kids who participate in after school activities or sports and need a good sports drink to rehydrate but don't want artificial ingredients. The resealable bottles are great to take on the go!

You can find out more about BODYARMOR at their website, or via one of their social media sites listed below!

The Vanilla Visa Gift Card - A Practical, Convenient Gift Idea for Father's Day #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary Vanilla Visa Gift Card in order to facilitate this post. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest and my own but may vary from yours.

Father's Day is right around the corner on June 21st!  It can be hard to shop for that special Father is your life. Think of those Dads who have everything...What in the world are you going to get them?


I have a potential solution that is both practical and convenient. Vanilla Visa Gift Cards make a great gift when you don't know what to buy that special man in your life. Sure, you may know he's into tools, cars or clothes but not entirely sure what tools, car items and/or clothing pieces he already has or even what his personal style or size is. 

Vanilla Visa Gift Cards can be purchased at 3 different amounts ($25, $50 and $100) at tons of retailers in most areas. For a small activation fee of $3.95, you can give the gift of whatever the recipient would like to buy and when they want. They can use the card anywhere where Visa is accepted and either right away or they can save it for another day in the future. The expiration dates on Vanilla Visa Gift Cards are usually super long (think years!)


Card holders can view their balance 24/7 at the Vanilla Visa Gift Card website and there are never any fees after purchase. There is none of that "This gift card is subject to a monthly fee starting a few months before expiration" like with some cards. They are much safer than sending or giving cash too! If the card is ever lost or stolen, one phone call can resolve the problem.


Consider a practical and convenient gift this Father's Day with a Vanilla Visa Gift Card.

ZenQuix Divi iPhone 6 Case #Review, #Giveaway (Ends 6/15) and #Coupon Code! #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate a review. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest and my own but may vary from yours. Giveaway is in no way associated with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or any other social media site.

My iPhone 6 has been an asset to me ever since purchasing it. I got mine in the gold color but with the case I had been using, you couldn't tell. In fact, with many cell phone cases out there, you're not able to see the back of the phone.

I received a ZenQuix Divi iPhone 6 case recently for review purposes.



About the ZenQuix Divi iPhone 6 case

- Lightweight and Slim Design
- 100% Money Back Guarantee - Love it or it's free!
- Manufacturer Lifetime Replacement Guarantee 
- Armor Protective Attributes
- Dual Material Design Absorbs Shock and Withstands Drops
- Raised Edge Protects Screen


I was impressed by the packaging of the case upon arrival. The case also came along with a screen protector and small microfiber cloth. Those additions were a nice touch.



Upon opening the box and taking the actual case out, I was again impressed with how lightweight the case was. The case is a darker grey color with the edges being flexible while the back of the case is a frosted grey and a harder material. Along the edges, are grips so it makes holding the iPhone 6 easier and you are less likely to drop it.

Putting the case onto the iPhone 6 was quick and easy. I just placed my phone into it and it snapped into place. Once my phone was in the case, it was secure. There was no wiggle room for the case to come off. The slim design doesn't add any bulk to the iPhone 6 like some other cases do.



I love that this case allows the back of my iPhone 6 gold to show through on the back. All of the ports, buttons and camera are easily accessed and not covered in any way with the case. The side grips are a nice touch and make me feel super comfortable while holding my phone. I am very careful when it comes to my phone as it was expensive and would be expensive to replace so I don't tend to drop it very often. However, I am confident that if I was to drop it, it would be protected by the case.

The only thing I personally did not care for about this case is that on the back, the brands name, ZenQuix is displayed right in the middle. I would have preferred that it be displayed maybe in smaller print along the bottom where it wouldn't interfere with showing off the back of the iPhone 6. 

I would however recommend this iPhone 6 case to anyone with an iPhone 6 who wants protection in a lightweight and slim design, while still being able to see the back of the phones color.

COUPON CODE FOR AMAZON - Go HERE and use coupon code KATHZENQ and save 20% off the price at Amazon!

GIVEAWAY - 2 lucky readers will win their very own ZenQuix Divi iPhone 6 case.

RULES - You must be 18 or older and live in the US in order to enter. Giveaway ends 6/15/15 at 11:59 pm eastern time. Giveaway winners will be picked via random via the Giveaway Tools widget and emailed. Winners will have 48 hours to respond to winning email before another winner is chosen.

Say Goodbye to Tangled Ear Buds with Cordskinz! #Review #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate a review. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest and my own but may vary from yours.


I listen to a lot of music and sometimes use ear buds in order to listen to music while on the go. The number one problem that I have encountered with ear buds is that the cord often gets tangled. Whether they get tangled from putting the ear buds in my pocket, my purse or on the table, it was pretty unavoidable.


I recently received a product for review called Cordskinz that has eliminated cord tangles with my ear buds. Cordskinz are a functional and fashionable way to keep ear bud cords tangle free.


I received 2 pair of Cordskinz. One in a lavender and one in a pink. Each order of Cordskinz comes with 2 pair and a skinner tool. The tool is essential in order to get the Cordskinz on your ear buds.


It was very easy to apply a Cordskinz onto a pair of ear buds. You simply put the ear bud cord into the groove on the skinner tool, hold it into place with your finger and thread the Cordskinz through the hole. By doing so, you are easily able to thread the ear bud cord into the Cordskinz. The ear buds that I used are the ear buds that come with the iPhone 6. I did have to cut the Cordskinz a couple of times in order to get them to fit around the volume/mic portion of the cord and around another portion. I then just followed the same steps for threading with the smaller portions of Cordskinz.


Not only are Cordskinz fashionable and a nice change of pace to the standard Apple iPhone 6 white ear buds, they have been extremely functional. I can place my ear buds into my pocket or purse and I do not have any more tangles!

I would highly recommend Cordskinz if you are looking for an easy and affordable way to decorate plain ear bud cords and looking for something that will keep ear buds from becoming tangled.

You can purchase Cordskinz at their website. You get 2 pair and the skinner tool for $9.99.
