AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight #Review and #Giveaway Ends 4/5! #AYLflashlight #Ad

I am embarrassed to admit that prior to receiving this flashlight for review purposes, I didn't even have one in the house. It was certainly not because I didn't feel it was necessary. In fact, it was always necessary just in case but every time I needed it, I either couldn't find it or the batteries were dead.


I was happy to review the AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight.



About the AYL LED CREE XP-E Car Flashlight 


- It features a rugged and high quality military-grade design for durability and versatility. It can be used in a variety of applications which include cars, bikes, home, etc.
- The flashlight comes with an anodized aluminium body which is resistant to various elements of weather
- It is powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included)
- It is quite versatile and comes with a total of 29 LEDS (18 white LEDs and 11 red LED)
- It comes in a user-friendly design. It features a magnetic base that can be stuck on any metallic surface
- It comes with 3 light options; Cree, White, and flashing Red LED for improved visibility
- The bulbs can last for more than 100,000 hours
- Easy operation: 1st click turns the CREE LED, 2nd click lights-up the 18 white LED, while 3rd click turns on RED LED


My Review


Upon opening, I did notice that the product did not come with the batteries needed to use it. Not that big of a deal but it would have been nice to use it straight out of the box. The flashlight has a nice sturdy feeling to it but it is pretty lightweight. I love how easy it is to use!


There is a little push button and with each push of the button, you get a different set of light(s). The first being the CREE LED, the second being the 18 white LED on the side and the third, turns on a flashing red signal.


The CREE LED is no joke! It is very bright! The visibility is fantastic and not your "typical" yellow flashlight color that basically is worthless when trying to see something in the dark.


I haven't had the chance or need to use the other 2 sets of lights. While this can be an in the house flashlight, it would also be fantastic to keep in the car. At the base, is a magnet. This allows for easy use both in and outside of the home without having to hold the flashlight. The 18 white LED lights on the side would be a great idea to use while working under the hood of the car completely hands free.

The red LED lights flash when engaged. This would be a great thing to have in the car in case of a breakdown so that other cars could see you or know that you need some help. With the magnetic base, you can leave it on the side of your car and get back in the car where it's safer.

After having the chance to use this flashlight, I believe every house and car should have one.

Restore harmony in mind and body… Unleash the healing power of 100% organic therapeutic essential oils! Packed with pure botanical essences, these organic oils provide amazing psychological and physical therapeutic benefits.





Essential oils are EVERYWHERE and it seems like everyone is talking about them and their benefits. I had always wanted to try some just to see what the hype was and got my chance recently.


My Review

I was able to choose between two different essential oils that are offered from Mia Mariu. It was a tough decision but in the end, I chose the Relax oil.





Relax Essential Oil Key Ingredients:
 
Lavender - has been cherished for its unmistakable aroma and therapeutic properties for thousands of years.  It is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities and helps ease muscle tension in the head and neck.
 
Sandalwood - found only in Hawaii and it delivers a variety of benefits.  It promotes healthy & smooth skin, reduces the appearance of scars and blemishes, enhances mood and promotes sleep and frequently used in meditation for its grounding and uplifting properties.
 
Cedarwood - Known for promoting healthy skin and clear breathing, Cedarwood has a warm, woody, balsamic fragrance that relaxes the mind and body and is perfect for massage therapy.
 
Clary Sage - known for its mood-lightening properties and ability to ease monthly menstrual cycles. It has a warm, herbal scent that is uplifting and relaxing, making it a perfect choice for supporting a normal, healthy attitude during PMS.


Upon arrival, the bottle was packaged nicely in bubble wrap and arrived with no damage and completely sealed. The packaging of the bottle itself was sleek and eye pleasing. I was surprised at how large the bottle is. You get 2 full ounces which in terms of an essential oil, is a lot! To dispense, you use the built in dropper and only need a couple of drops. The smell is fantastic! You definitely notice first off the lavender with hints of the other ingredients.

I get frequent headaches, mostly from stress, and haven't really found a way to get rid of them without having to pop pills, which I don't like to have to do all the time. Since receiving the Relax, I have just been dabbing a little on my temples when I feel a headache coming on or if I feel myself getting really stressed, and after a couple minutes, I feel much better.

With only using a couple drops here and there, the 2 ounce bottle is sure to last me a long time. I look forward to finding out new ways to use the essential oil in the future.


GIVEAWAY 

One lucky reader will win their own 2 ounce bottle of Relax essential oil from Mia Mariu.

-Dishwasher safe





My Review

I received a set of Smart Oven Gloves for review purposes. I was excited to receive them because I do love to cook but honestly, I really hate typical oven mitts. They really don't protect your hands all that well and quite frankly, can burn, catch fire and get stained with food.




Upon opening the Smart Oven Gloves and you receive 2 in the package, I noticed that they were a nice size. I have large fingers and hands but the gloves fit with no issues. They were comfortable while on and I felt like I could still hold onto utensils etc while having them on. They were easily cleaned when food spilled on them.With BBQ season coming up soon, I can't wait to get more use out of these and not be so afraid of using the grill. With BBQ season coming up, wouldn't you like to keep yourself protected with Smart Oven Gloves?


You can purchase these on Amazon.com

One lucky reader will win a set of Smart Oven Gloves of their own.

About NeoCell Biotin Bursts

NeoCell Biotin Bursts are soft chews that deliver a whopping 10,000 mcg of biotin. They're just the ticket for helping skin hair and nails. Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is a water soluble vitamim so it's not stored in the body - making regular intake important to maintain healthy levels.

Biotin Bursts also contain 25mg of Brazilian acai berry powder, which provides antioxidants to help fight premature aging of the skin. The acai berry also gives Biotin Bursts their delicious berry flavor.

A daily dose is just a single chew and contains only 20 calories and has no gluten, soy or artificial flavors - they are all natural.

Biotin Bursts are also award winning, having been named Best Beauty Supplement by the editors of Delicious Living magazine and a Best of Natural Beauty award winner by Better Nutrition magazine.

NeoCell Biotin Bursts are available through more than 10,000 retailers, including CVS, Walgreens, Vitamin Shoppe, Vitamin World and independent health food stores nationwide.




MY REVIEW

I had heard about Biotin in the past but never really gave it much thought or tried any to see if it really did anything. When the opportunity arose to try and review the NeoCell Biotin Bursts, I thought to myself "Why not?".

They came packaged nicely and within the box they arrived in, was a resealable bag. It was recommended to keep these in the refrigerator so I did. Each burst is individually wrapped which I liked. This would make taking these on the go much easier than having to take a whole box or to have a soft chew get all over everything in a purse.

I admit that I was worried about how they might taste. I thought maybe they would taste medicinal but with the acai berry powder, they taste super fruity and had the consistency of a Starburst candy.


After having taken one each day for around 2 weeks, I have noticed that my hair and nails look much better than prior to trying them. My hair and nails seem to be growing a bit faster and my nails seem stronger. I can't wait to continue taking one daily and see what other results I get over a longer period of time.



GIVEAWAY 

One lucky reader will win their own box of NeoCell Biotin Bursts to try for themselves.


RULES - You must be 18 or older to enter and live in the US. Giveaway ends on 3/29/15 at 11:59 pm eastern time. Giveaway winner will be drawn via GT widget at random and will be emailed. Winner will have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be picked.

Francois et Mimi Ice Cream Bowl, Pastel Colors Set #Review #IceCreamBowl #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.




My daughter and I love ice cream year around so when I received this cute set of ceramic dessert bowls, I admit I was excited. Yes, excited for bowls.

You see, normally we just use large cereal bowls for ice cream and other dessert type treats which can cause us to overeat.

The bowls were packaged nicely inside the box. They arrived with no damage or broken bowls. I found the set to be not only functional but pleasant to look at and serve treats in. I like that they are FDA certified to be lead free. They are also dishwasher and microwave safe as well.




I found that not only could these be used for ice cream and other dessert treats as they were the perfect size for such foods, they were also the perfect size for a small bowl of cereal or other snacks.

The pastel colors just scream Spring and I am proud to serve desserts and other foods in these to my guests that come over.

I haven't used them in the microwave as of yet but I have used them in the dishwasher and they came clean and I had no issues.

I would recommend this cute set of ceramic dessert bowls to anyone who is looking for a festive way to serve ice cream or other dessert treats this Spring and Summer. They would also be great for anyone who wants to keep their diets in check by not overeating.

You can purchase these on Amazon.com

Francois et Mimi 50oz Glass French Press #Review #GlassFrenchPress #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 was provided a Francois et Mimi 50oz Glass French Press to review and provide my thoughts.




Coffee is one of my most favorite things in the world. I have a personal 'cup' type brewer and have been totally satisfied with it until receiving and trying out the Francois et Mimi 50oz Glass French Press.

Don't get me wrong, I have heard of french presses before but didn't really understand why many people preferred using them. I was excited to find out for myself.

The glass and chrome finish are very elegant looking. I found it to be sturdy without being too heavy or bulky.

The directions were on the back of the box, which I found helpful but I would have appreciated a booklet or paper inside in the box as well or instead.

The directions seemed easy enough - Simply add hot water into the pot, leaving a minimum of 1 inch of space at the top. Without pressing on the plunger, cover the coffee press with the top unit and leave the coffee to brew for at least 5 minutes. After having waited 5 minutes, grab and firmly hold the handle of the coffee press with one hand and slowly press on the plunger with the other hand until it reaches the bottom. Repeat as desired.

I didn't find that there was a learning curve at all and use was simple. The outcome of the coffee was fantastic. The flavors were much more rich and smooth. There were also no grounds in my coffee. Ease of cleanup was a breeze and the unit is dishwasher safe.

The unit holds 50 ounces and along with coffee, you can use it to make tea as well.

I think it would be a great gift for Mother's Day or even just for anyone who loves coffee or tea.
