Refreshing Summer Beverages from Wyler's Light #Review #Ad

Disclosure: I received complementary samples in order to facilitate this post/review. Any and all thoughts are honest, my own and not swayed in any way.


Summer is in full swing and it's hot out there! Nothing screams Summer more than a drink of lemonade or other refreshing beverage. My daughter and I love the ease of powdered drink mixes that we can just pour the packets into a bottle of water and drink up. However, I don't like the idea of drinking beverages with aspartame and sadly, many sugar free mixes contain it.

Wyler's Light offers the great tasting beverages without the sugar or aspartame! They have lots of flavors (19 to be exact) including lemonade, strawberry lemonade and even a new blueberry lemonade.


I was sent a package with some varieties to try out. My daughter and I were able to try several lemonade varieties and a few other flavors. Each flavor packs a punch of refreshing flavor and hydration. The packets are small enough to fit your purse, desk drawer etc so when you need a refreshing drink, just grab a bottle of water and pour the packet in and shake. That's it. We are both addicted to the lemonade. It's tart without being too tart and just enough sweetness. It's really delicious.

The packets are fabulous for Summer as everyone is on the go with trips to the beach or pool, Summer camps and other outdoor activities. You can even create recipes using Wyler's Light. Adults can even add alcohol to make low calorie cocktails. Wyler's Light Peach mixed with alcohol would make a great low calorie peach Bellini for example.

Join Wyler's Light on Facebook using the hashtag #WeTime for tips and suggestions for family fun.

What kind of recipes will you make with Wyler's Light sugar free drink mixes without aspartame?

B&C Home Goods Set of 6 Light Gray Storage Basket Bins - Fabric Storage Boxes #Review #BandCHomeGoods #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and not swayed in any way.




My daughter owns a lot of toys and crafts so it's hard to keep all of her things organized. We have tried the huge bins but they just become a huge bin of unorganized mess. My daughter always complained she could never find anything.


I recently received for review purposes a Set of 6 Light Gray Storage Basket Bins - Fabric Storage Boxes from B&C Home Goods.





Upon opening the box, the bins did have a chemical smell to them but that did go away after I aired them out for a few days. Each bin is 11 inches X 10.5 inches X 10.5 inches. They are a really good size to fit a decent amount of things in but I believe they are a little smaller than some other similar bins that are on the market.


I love the gray color as they would fit into almost any decor. The bins are very sturdy and can hold a nice amount of things without the bin feeling like the bottom may fall out. There is one handle on each side to make carrying easier as well.


These have been great to organize some of my daughters clutter as each bin is assigned to one type of toy or craft. I will be looking to get more so I can organize some more of her things.

Keeva Organic Argan Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Coconut Body Wash #Review #Keeva #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and not swayed in any way.

I was recently sent a bottle of Anti-bacterial Body Wash with Tea Tree Oil, Argan Oil and Coconut Oil from Keeva.




I was impressed with the size of the bottle upon arrival. The bottle was 28.2 ounces and large. The bottle is a pump style bottle and came with a lock/clip around part of the pump so that it did not leak during shipment. It did not leak at all.


The pump is easy to use and dispense the product. The product is pretty moisturizing and left my body feeling clean. I personally liked the scent of the product as it's an argan oil type scent and smells almost like a mans cologne. If you are wanting a feminine smelling product, this really wouldn't be for you. The scent is not overpowering at all and does not really linger after you're done showering.

Keeva Organic Argan Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Coconut Deep Conditioner #Review #Keeva #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and not swayed in any way.

I have had dry, frizzy, thick and coarse hair most of my life. It drives me insane! Many conditioner or conditioner type products don't really do much for my hair after it dries.

I recently received a bottle of Argan Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner from Keeva. Upon arrival, I first noticed the size of the bottle. It's 28.2 ounces, which is a large bottle. It was shipped with a bottle clip/lock on it so that it did not leak during shipment.



I love the ease of use of the pump of the bottle and the texture of the product is white and creamy. It has a pleasant scent which is not overpowering.

It made my hair feel nice while lathering it into my hair in the shower. It rinsed easily without leaving any oily, greasy or residue type feeling behind. It did make my hair more manageable and less frizzy after my hair dried.

B&C Home Goods Pants Hangers #Review #BandCHomeGoods #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and not swayed in any way.

One issue that drives me crazy in my closet is hangers especially hangers and pants. Some of the pants that I enjoy wearing are a slinky knit type and seemingly fall off of most hangers. It's a constant battle of trying to keep the pants on the hangers.

I recently received for review purposes a set of 20 pants hangers from B&C Home Goods. They are made of strong metal,  have a black rubber coating that makes them non-slip. They hold up to 20lbs as well.

When I first saw these hangers, I had my doubts about how non-slip they would be. Upon arrival, the box was heavy. These are definitely not your typical light weight and flimsy hangers.

They have a much different design than most other hangers that I have seen. I immediately noticed the black rubber coating on them. I couldn't wait to test them out especially with my more slinky pants!

I first hung up a pair of jeans on a hanger. They hung up easily and with the rubber, the jeans didn't slip or move around. Next it was time for the what I considered ultimate test.

I tried a pair of my slinky knit black pants. These are slick and slide around and off all of the other hangers that I have tried. They did not slip off of these hangers. Even with a gentle tug of the pants, they did not come off the hanger.



I have enjoyed using these hangers not only for the non-slip grip they provide but also the sleek and space saving design they provide my closet.

Elechomes Electric Facial and Body Skin Brush Cleanser #Review #SkiBrush #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and not swayed in any way.



I have struggled with skin issues since being a teenager. From dull looking skin to huge pores to acne, you name it. I have tried a ton of creams, cleansers etc and while my face seemed clean, it really was not. I have seen the electric brush type products around for years but never wanted to invest the money because I thought they wouldn't clean as well as they claimed especially for the money.

I recently was able to receive the Elechomes Electric Facial and Body Skin Brush Cleanser to try out in exchange for a review.

The package contains 
1* Elechomes face and body brush
1* Big Brush( for hand and body cleaning)
1* Small Brush ( for dead facial skin exfoliation)
1* Face Sponge (for skin Elasticity and nutrition absorption)
1* Pumice ( for scrubing rough skin from heels and feet)
1* Manual


I could hardly contain my excitement when the package arrived. Upon opening the package, everything was contained in it's own space. I would have however, preferred instead of a plastic type insert for storage, that it had some other type of permanent storage included.

The unit needs 4 AA batteries in order to operate and the batteries do not come with the unit. I wish the company would have included the batteries so the unit could be used straight out of the box.

I placed the batteries in the unit and attached the face and body brush. I got the brush a little wet under water and added my favorite cleanser. Using the unit took a moment to adjust how much pressure I was applying as you don't need to apply very much at all. It did not hurt or burn to use the unit either. It was a soothing feeling. Once I was finished, I rinsed my face off and dried it. I was amazed at how clean my face felt. There was a huge difference between how it normally felt after washing with just my hands and washing with this unit. My skin felt not only clean but soft and smooth. 

I have been using the unit for a couple of days only on my face and look forward to using it daily because of how my face looks and feels after using. My moisturizer and makeup go on much better now too which is a plus.

AYL SoundFit Plus Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker #Review #AYLSPEAKERS #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review. Any and all opinions are honest, my own and not swayed in any way.


I recently received the AYL SoundFit Plus Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker for review purposes. With it being Summer, my daughter and I spend a lot of time outside or at the pool. Her and I both love listening to music but the speakers on a cell phone don't really allow the volume to go very high in order for more than one person to hear the music well. Plus my cell phone isn't waterproof.

With the AYL SoundFit Plus, you have a completely portable bluetooth speaker that connects to your cell phone and allows you to listen to music from your phone through the speaker. This allows a large group of people to listen to the music easily and allows you to put your cell phone away in a safe area away from water.




The speaker is waterproof, dust and shock resistant. No more worries when wanting to take music to the beach or the pool!

Pairing the speaker was super easy and the speaker is really simple to use. There is a booklet that comes along with it that explains how to pair the speaker to your cell phone and how to use the speaker.

I tested this out with my cell phone in one end of my home and walked to the other side of my home and the speaker continued to play music without missing a beat. You can also take phone calls through the speaker with the built in mic. With a full charge, you can get up to 8 hours of playback time.

The quality of the sound is fantastic. You can hear each beat of music and it's crystal clear. Even the bass sounds great!

I can't wait to take this speaker along on the rest of our Summer adventures this year!

Tweets Tech iPhone 6/6S Ultra-thin Protective Shell Case #Review #TweetsTech #Ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review of the product. Any and all thoughts are honest, my own and are not swayed in any way.



We all know that cell phones are expensive and we need to protect them. I get bored quite easily and enjoy changing the case on my phone quite frequently as well. I have a huge collection and always welcome another to add to my collection.



I recently received an ultra-thin protective shell case from Tweets Tech for an iPhone 6/6S. While I have recently upgraded to an iPhone 6S Plus, I still have my iPhone 6 and my daughter uses it for internet, games and music.






I thought the packaging upon arrival was nice and sleek. I ordered the pink and upon first glance, loved the way it looked. It's a shiny metallic pink. I was however a bit disappointed in the actual case. I like my cases to not only look good but provide a lot of protection. The case does goes on and off easily and looks great while on the phone. My issue with the case is more to do with it being easily flexible and bendable. The plastic seems heavier duty than some plastic type cases but I don't know how much protection it would really provide in the event of a dropped phone. The case claims to absorb shock and provide protection against scratches. I believe those claims to be true but this is not a hard case that would provide a ton of protection.

YUNSONG Android and Apple Lightning Car Charger #Review #carcharger #ad

Disclosure: I received a complementary product in exchange for my honest review. Any and all thoughts are honest, my own and are not swayed in any way.


I have said before that one of the biggest issues I have with owning a cell phone is that I always need to use it when I am out and about in my car and when my phone battery is nearly dead. A car charger is a must if you own a cell phone unless you religiously charge your phone to 100% each and every time you leave the house. I am not one of those people :)

I recently was able to receive for review a car charger for my iPhone 6s Plus.

The YUNSONG car charger comes with the charger itself, an extra lightning charging cord as well as an android charging cord. The YUNSONG has two USB ports on it so you are able to charge two devices at the same time with this car charger. This is perfect as I don't have to fight over the charger if my passenger also needs a quick cell phone charge. 



It was nice that the company sent an extra lightning cord and android charging cord but unfortunately, the lightning cord is not Apple certified. A message always pops up on my phone that states the cord is not certified and may not work reliably with this phone. In fact, it would not charge at all as I kept getting the message. I did get the charger to work but I had to use an Apple certified charging cord in order to do so. It charged my phone but was a little slow. 

A friend of mine has an android device and was able to test the android cord for me. The charger did charge his cell phone but it charged a little slow. 

I did like that two devices can be charged at the same time with this charger but I was disappointed at the charging speed and that the lightning charging cord that came with this package did not work at all.
