Bath Blossom Foot Scrub Brush review

Disclosure: I received the scrub brush for a reduced price for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own! I recently reviewed the Bath Blossom Foot Scrub Brush. 
In the pics enclosed, you won't see any soap or running shower 🚿 water! I draw the line at taking pics while I shower!  I love using bath products of all kinds, especially those that I can use in the shower. My feet don't always get the special attention that they need sometimes. I do was them well every day, don't get me  wrong! Anyhow, this brush is indeed a massaging and scrubbing foot brush! It was quite comfortable to use, and easy to rinse after using. I put some liquid bath soap on it, and foamed it up as I scrubbed my feet. It almost borderline tickled them!  What a way to start my work night or day off in the shower.  It is large enough for women, men, and children to use! It rinses easily and hangs up to dry with a suction cup hook. There are suction cups on the bottom of the foot scrub brush. I really like it a lot! Bath Blossom Foot Scrub Brush

Laila London Beauty Box Review

Disclosure: I received the beauty box for a discount for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own. I love trying beauty products! I recently was given the opportunity to review the Laila London Beauty Box. It's made up of 100% natural organic skincare and oral hygiene products. They make them in small batches. I received the following items in my beauty box: Pink Clay Mask with Rice Enzyme, a brush(to apply the mask with!), Rose Coconut Lip Butter, Replenishing Midnight Facial Oil, and a small cotton bag all the beauty products in it! The Rose Coconut lip butter smells oh so lovely, and helped to keep my lips soft. It contained shea butter, coconut oil, and rose. There wasn't a taste to it, but it did smooth on very easily with a fingertip!

The Pure Pink Clay Mask was great to use. I applied it with the lovely brush, after mixing the clan mask powder with oil. I let it dry, then removed it with a clean moist cloth. If you have sensitive skin, you will want to remove the mask a bit earlier, prior to it drying. It helps to reduce pores, and detoxify and brighten the facial skin. The ingredients in the mask are 100% organic and natural. It's a exfoliator type of mask, and it can be used 2-3 times per week. The Replenishing Midnight Facial Oil can be used on all skin types. It contains ingredients that help to combat the daily effects of our environment and can moisturize the skin. It smells great, and my skin felt softer and smoother!I really enjoyed using these products and loved how they smelled. For further information, you can check them out: Laila London

V-Blade Mandoline Slicer Review

Disclosure: I received the mandoline and accessories for a reduced price for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own.

I recently reviewed the Grocery Arts brand V-Blade Mandoline Slicer and a pair of cut-resistant gloves, along with the accessories for the mandoline.  The mandoline comes with 5  interchangeable blades and a holder for 4 of them,  the blade guard, a food holder, and the cut-resistant gloves in size large. You can make thin slices, medium slices, thin julienne, medium julienne, thick julienne, and cubes! I liked that the mandoline slicer was made out of 18/8 stainless steel! The items were all hand washable in warm or cold water.

I opted to make home fries with the mandoline, and I used the medium slices blade for slicing. I can remember using a mandoline with my mother when I was slicing potatoes for her. Unfortunately, I did slice my fingers a few times back then! This time, I was able to make the home fries for my husband and me, and be safe! They turned out quite well, and I was well pleased with how easy it was to use the mandoline! I definitely would recommend it! For more information, check it out at:

Foot Compression Braces (review)

Disclosure: I received the foot compression braces and the orthotic heel cushions for a reduced price for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own.

I received a pair of foot compression braces and a  pair of orthotic heel cushions for my review. I have worn orthotics since 2011 in my work and everyday sneakers.  The foot compression brace contain these acupuncture and massage pressure points medical grade silicon to aid and help with inflammation and circulation. The pressure points were a bit strong for me at times. They are adjustable with the Velcro strap around them. I'm not sure it's because the strap was right under the tongue of my work sneakers, or if my feet were a bit sensitive to the pressure points on the brace! If you are wondering, I did take my orthotics out of my sneakers for awhile, so that I could review these two items in my shoes.

The orthotic heel cushions... I would have liked for them to have had a bit more gel substance to them! The heel cushions can help with a wide range of foot issues that require comfort!! Heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, sore feet, to name just a few. They can help reduce the shock and strain of standing on your feet! They help me quite a bit! I do recommend them!

For more information, go to :  Foot Compression Braces    They come in a small package, and are very easy to use!!

Review of the Antimicrobial 6-setting Rain Handshower by AquaDance with Microban (Blue)

Disclosure: I received the product for a reduced price to facilitate my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my family's.

Steve likes a basic everyday setting on a shower. He also likes for the showerhead to reach high enough so that he's not standing in the very back of the shower to rinse his hair due to his height (he's 6 foot!) It was possible with the way that this hand shower mounted in the shower! Steven likes how different shower sprays can help his back aches and pains feel better, and sometimes help him to relax. I'm not sure if son's used the hand held aspect of the rain hand shower yet.  For me, I like the choices of sprays, depending on how my fibromyalgia or neck and back pain is feeling. I also like the handheld part, since it can help me rinse the shower after I clean it! The 6 settings are the following : Power Rain, Pulsating Massage, Gentle Mist, Rain/Massage, Rain/Mist, and Water-Saving On-Off/Pause.

The Microban aspect of the rain handshower has to do with the antimicrobial part of the showerhead in the anti-clog nozzles. I know that my family doesn't want to be sprayed with bacteria when we shower!  If you rub the jets when you clean your shower, you can help to keep the jets clear of  deposits (like minerals) in your water. You have a choice of blue, purple, or aqua colored jets. I chose the blue ones for us, since the guys wouldn't decide!   I know that we've been quite pleased with the product, and I would seriously recommend it!

"The Lonely Pumpkin" by Nicole Monroe

Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own!

I really enjoy sharing about children's books that have an important message about them. "The Lonely Pumpkin" is one of those books for youth: the kind of book that when you read it, you learn something! There was a pumpkin who was what most would consider unattractive, he was dirty and had bumps on him. People were buying other pumpkins in the patch, and he was being ignored.  He was waiting for a child who would come and take care of him. He got sad when the others were bought and taken home with people.

I don't want to give the ending away! It is a great book, and is an easy read for the young ones. This book teaches children that we are not alone, and there is someone who loves us just the way that we are. What a great message!  Nicole Monroe wrote the book, and it has lovely illustrations in it.
