Celebrate Spring with 2 New Flavors of Brioche French Toast at IHOP! #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample by way of a gift card in order to help facilitate this post. No other compensation was received. Any and all opinions are honest and my own but may vary from yours. 


IHOP is celebrating Spring with 2 new flavors of their Brioche French Toast. For a limited time, IHOP is offering Caramel Apple or Strawberry Creme Brioche French Toast on their menus.

Brioche French Toast is created by soaking thick-cut slices of rich Brioche bread in a lightly-sweetened vanilla batter and grilled to a warm golden crispiness.

Caramel Apple - Topped with sliced apples, drizzled with a rich caramel sauce and served with a warm vanilla sauce on the side

Strawberry Creme - Topped with cool glazed strawberries, a dollop of sour crème with a brown sugar drizzle.

IHOP offers either one as an entree alone or as a combo meal.

I recently went to my local IHOP to try out one of these new flavors of brioche french toast.
I had a hard time figuring out which to choose but ultimately went with the Caramel Apple.

I made mine a combo meal complete with eggs, bacon and hashbrowns.





When my plates arrived to the table, I could hardly contain my excitement. The Caramel Apple Brioche French Toast looked AMAZING! As I dug into my meal, I was in complete heaven.




The Brioche French Toast alone wasn't dry or soggy and had an amazing flavor to it. But then add in apples, a warm caramel sauce, a warm vanilla sauce AND a huge pile of whipped cream, oh man, it was fantastic! Think apple pie filling with vanilla and caramel sauce on top of fantastic and crispy french toast! YUM! I had eaten most of the french toast before realizing that I still had another plate with my eggs, bacon and hashbrowns on it to eat too.


I would highly recommend trying IHOP's Brioche French Toast if you haven't already. They are available until May 31st, 2015 and along with the 2 new flavors, the fan favorite Bananas Foster variety is back as well.

The Ultimate Mount - Universal Air Vent Car Mount #Review #UltimateMount75Degrees #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 love listening to music while driving but what I don't like is not being able to listen to my iPhone in the car. Let me explain. Yes, I am ABLE to listen to my iPhone in the car but when it comes time to change songs, I have to grab it either off my lap or the drink holders in between the seats. Then I have to take my eyes off the road in order to hit skip etc to get the song that I want. It's not a very safe thing to be doing so I typically do not and just stick with a CD or the radio.

However I recently was able to review a cell phone mount that would soon change all that.

I received The Ultimate Mount - a universal air vent car mount. Upon arrival, it was packaged nicely and came undamaged. The mount is very light weight which I feel is great because I don't think I would want to use a heavy item that it meant to fit on a car air vent. I wouldn't want it to cause damage to my car.

The Ultimate Mount claims that it will fit almost every car air vent and fits most cell phones.

I have a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze and the mount fit with no issues. On the back of the mount is a cone shaped flexible piece that will easily open to fit your car air vent but also grip tightly around it.


Please don't mind the dust in my car lol

It is to fit most cell phones as well. I have an iPhone 6, which is not a small phone but it fit inside the mount perfectly. The mount works by just pulling it apart (it's spring loaded) to adjust to your phones size and the tightly grips around the phone. You could likely use this for other types of devices like a GPS if it fit but I haven't tested that possibility.



Once the mount was on the vent and my phone was placed inside, it stayed put with no issues. It never moved from driving, taking turns or even with hitting some bumps in the road.

I have been greatly appreciating the fact that I can listen to music in the car again via my iPhone! The mount is up high enough that I can see the list of songs and push what I need to on my phone without having to take my eyes off the road or having to shuffle around with a phone in my lap etc.

You can purchase this item at Amazon.com

Cherry Classics iPhone 6 Leather Phone Wallet Case #Review #Deals #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 got myself an iPhone 6 in November 2014 and I love it! However it's been a struggle to take it with me outside my home. You see, my purse is a huge tote style bag and the slots for a cell phone are not big enough to hold an iPhone 6. I do have a case on the phone but my phone often gets lost in the mix of my large purse. I don't even really need to take my purse to most of the places I go to on a regular basis. My wallet and phone are usually everything that I need but it's a struggle to carry a big and bulky wallet along with a large iPhone 6. I can't tell you how many times I've dropped one or the other.



I recently had the chance to receive and review a leather iPhone 6 wallet case from Cherry Classics. What is fantastic about this case is that it's like a wallet and phone case all in one.



I choose the black/grey checkered print style. Upon arrival, I was impressed with the quality of the leather. It features a magnetic open and closure which I appreciate. It features 2 credit card type slots along with an extra third slot with an ID window. The ID window is the perfect slot for my drivers license. Behind the slots, there is a larger full length slot which is perfect for keeping money or receipts. The phone case portion is a durable plastic and it was easy to slip my phone into it. Once my phone was in the case, it did not move. It was safe and secure. There are openings on the sides so you have access to all of your phone buttons. The bottom of the case is open so you have access to the charging port without having to take the phone out. There is also an opening on the back so you can still take pictures with your phone being in the case with no issues.

I have enjoyed using this iPhone 6 case as it has allowed me to not have to take my purse everywhere that I go and I no longer have to take my big and bulky wallet out either. I just have my essentials inside and out the door I go.

I would recommend the iPhone Leather Case from Cherry Classics to anyone with an iPhone 6. You can purchase one at Amazon.com.

Do you struggle with giving your child medication or vitamins? Medi-Pals medication dispensers are going to make your life so much easier!

Key benefits of Medi-Pals pacifier medicine dispensers:
  • They're softer than a straight syringe, and the syringe sits snugly in the nipple, so no medicine gets lost or stuck to the sides.
  • They're accurate - the caregiver is in complete control of dosage.
  • The diverter on the pacifier nipple fans the medicine to the sides, not straight to the back of the child's throat, so that the child won't gag and spit the medicine out.

  • The pacifier and faceplate are easy to put together and take apart. You can even change faceplates!
  • They work with more than just oral vitamins, pain relievers, and oral antibiotics - it can also be used with baby food or even honey. If you can get it into the syringe, it will work.

Lite Sensations Eyebrow Tweezers #Review and #Giveaway Ends 4/15! #EYETWEE1 #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.


It's so hard to find a good quality set of eyebrow tweezers. Most pinch skin or just can't grip those pesky hairs. That has all changed for me ever since receiving a pair of Lite Sensations Eyebrow Tweezers for review.





About Lite Sensations Eyebrow Tweezers


-Professional Eyebrow Tweezers

-Slanted Tip Removes Hair Quickly and Easily


-Made of Stainless Steel 


-Best Precision for Eyebrow Shaping


-Professional Grade to Avoid Missing Little Hairs

-Portable 



Review


Upon opening the package, I noticed the tweezers were in a purple color. Purple is my favorite color and I have not personally seen any tweezers other than the standard silver colored ones. They are lightweight but you can tell from how they feel in your hand that they are durable. The slanted tip is fantastic and made getting in close much easier than other tweezers without pinching the skin! While I don't really enjoy plucking my eyebrows and other various hairs on my face and chin, these made the process quick, easy and nearly painless. They grip even the smallest and thinnest of hairs. 


If you're tired of tweezers that pinch your skin or just don't perform the way you would like, try these and I don't think you will be disappointed. 



You can purchase these on Amazon.com




Giveaway

One lucky reader will win their very own Lite Sensations Eyebrow Tweezers



Rules 

 You must be 18 or older and live in the US in order to enter. Giveaway ends 4/15/15 at 11:59 pm eastern time. Winner will be drawn at random via the Giveaway Tools Widget and will be emailed. Winner will have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be chosen in their place.

Yorkshire Mayfair Luxury Microfiber Sheet Set #Review #LuxuryMicrofiberSheetSet #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 recently received a luxury microfiber sheet set from Yorkshire Mayfair for review purposes.




About Yorkshire Mayfair Luxury Microfiber Sheet Set

-4 Piece Set includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and 2 standard pillow cases

-Made from the highest quality heavy-weight, high-gram luxury microfiber

-More durable than cotton

-Hypoallergenic

-Wrinkle Resistant 

-Extra Deep Pocket Fit up to 14" Mattresses

-Lifetime Guarantee



Review

I received a green color in the sheets. While they would not have been my first color choice, they do go well with my bedding and are totally growing on me. They were packaged perfectly inside a zippered package. Upon opening them, I noticed how soft they were! It was super easy to make my bed with the fitted sheet. I hate making beds because the fitted sheets are usually a pain to get on and more importantly, stay on! This is usually because the pockets are not deep enough. The deep pockets on these are fantastic. Not only do they easily fit onto my mattress, I have had zero issues with them coming off at night.



While they claim to be wrinkle resistant, even after a tumble in the dryer, they still had wrinkles. This may be from being packed inside the package but even if they are not completely wrinkle resistant, I am okay with that personally.

I have never had microfiber bed sheets before but they feel amazing at night to sleep on. They feel very luxurious and soft. I prefer them over my other cotton sheets. You cannot go wrong with these sheets!

Smart Weigh Bathroom Memory Scale #Review #smartweigh #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 recently received a new bathroom scale from Smart Weigh and was asked to write about my thoughts. 

I weigh myself on a daily basis but the scale I had been using was a piece of junk. Seriously, I could step on it a couple of times within seconds and get different readings. I don't have time for all that.




About the Smart Weigh Memory Scale

-8 User Auto-Recognition 

-Automatic Memory Function

-Weight Difference Tracker

-Dual Color LCD Screen

-Step on Technology Triggers Power Upon Contact

-Strong Tempered Glass Platform 

-440 Pound Capacity

-Energy Saving Automatic Shut Off

-Includes 4 x AAA Batteries and Manual



Review

When it first arrived, I thought the packaging was very nice. Within the box, the scale itself was packaged nicely. The scale came with the batteries necessary to operate which I appreciate. Opening up the battery compartment, sticking in the batteries and closing the compartment was all super easy. It is visually appealing to look at and keep out in the bathroom.



The scale holds up to 440lbs and is super sturdy when stepping on. I didn't feel like I was going to break it or that I was going to fall off. The scale is very accurate with readings and I got the same readings when testing it multiple times over a several minute span of time. 

The auto-recognition is an amazing feature. With the feature, you just step on and it knows who you are. It then will let you know if you have lost or gained weight since your last weigh in. If the LCD screen lights up green with your weight, you have lost and if it shows up red, you have gained. It also tells you how much you have lost or gained down in the corner of the screen. The back-lit LCD screen is clear and easy to read.

I would recommend this scale to anyone who needs a new bathroom scale and wants something that holds a large capacity, is sturdy, accurate and likes the idea of the scale keeping track of your weight loss or gain to keep you on track and motivated.
