Progressigs Review

As I’m sure you all know, I am on a mission to find the best electronic cigarettes with the best prices. It amazes me how different each company is. I had figured that there would only be a few differences, but I have learned so much the last few weeks. This next company has really surpassed my expectations. I received some really awesome products from Progressigs to review for you guys.
Believer Kit

So why don’t you have your own electronic cigarette yet? Are they too big? Not enough vapor? Or is there something else that draws you away from them? I have been asking everyone that I can why they have not made the switch, and for the most part everyone comes up with the same answers. I finally found a company that has all of the qualities you are looking for in an e-cigarette plus many more.
The number one problem people seem to have with e-cigarettes, at least from my personal findings, has been that they are too heavy, or too long. Progressigs are significantly smaller and lighter than any other e-cigarettes I have tried. You can hold them just like a regular cigarette without feeling awkward or uncomfortable. Unlike most other brands, you can hold a Progressigs e-cigarette where you want instead of in the middle. If you are looking for something extremely light, their disposables are even lighter than the rechargeable e-cigarettes and they come in all the same great flavors.

The second most talked about issue is that they just don’t feel like you are smoking a cigarette. Sure they look the same, but most just don’t feel the same. Instead of using your typical cartomizer Progressigs use a technology called an Aquamizer. The Aquamizer uses ceramic rods instead of cotton fibers which not only helps to produce more vapor, but also helps make sure that none of the e-liquid is wasted in the smoking process. It’s amazing how much thicker the vapor is in this e-cigarette than in the others I have tried. Not only could I see the difference, but I could feel it as well.

So why do I love Progressigs? As much as I love different flavors, I love that Progressigs only carries a small number of flavors. Since they only have a limited number of flavors you can trust that the quality of each of these flavors is just as good as the rest. I was able to try all of their flavors available which include: Regular Tobacco, Menthol, Cherry, Vanilla, and Clove. Each one had its own personality that really made it stand out from other brands. The Tobacco tasted more like an actual cigarette than other brands. The Menthol while strong, was actually very refreshing. Even though I’m not a big fan of clove it was actually pretty good. You can actually taste the cherry in the Cherry flavor, which is great because other brands fruity flavors taste funny. And last but not least the Vanilla has been everyone’s favorite! It’s extremely smooth, and is just a great flavor.

Accessories

Another reason Progressigs stands out so much to everyone I have talked to is because of the carrying case. Not only can you fit an assembled e-cigarette in the case, but you can also use the case as a charger. The charger itself has a battery that can re-charge your e-cigarettes up to 5 times before needing to be charged again. Not only that but if you charge your e-cigarette by itself instead of using the case it can take hours to charge, while the case charges your battery within about 30 minutes. So if you don’t like e-cigarettes because of how inconvenient it is to charge them, than this is the e-cig for you. I love that even if I am not home I can easily charge my e-cig without having to find my charger, and find some where to plug it in.

This company is in my opinion the best e-cigarette company. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next! You can find these and other awesome Progressigs products on their website here.

Packaways Review

My daughters room is full of toys. So many that we have a hard time putting them away and keeping them away. If we use a toy chest she just opens it up and takes all the toys out and leaves them all over the floor. We definitely needed a way to keep all of her toys organized while still keeping them in her room that would also be hard for her to get into. We received some boxes from Packaways to review.
I love the boxes we received! They are really easy to set up, and they have a really awesome design. When they are put together they remind me of colorful Chinese take out boxes, I’m still not sure why. I love that you can write on the labels with a dry erase marker so that if you change the contents you can also change the label.
Each box has special flaps, cuts and holes in them so that you can put them together quickly and hassle free. I’m sure we have all closed boxes using the criss cross method, but not only does it ruin the box, but you can get paper cuts which are the worst. You use a similar method to close these boxes but with the way they designed it you don’t have to ruin the box, you don’t get paper cuts from it, and the best part is that it won’t accidentally come undone while you are trying to move the box.
We used our Packaways for our daughters toys, but there are so many other ways to use these boxes. You can use them for moving, paperwork, storage or anything else you need boxes for. They come in many different sizes, and tons of colors! The possibilities are endless! I will definitely be buying more of these boxes and I think that everyone should have at least one of these boxes laying around.
You can find Packaways on their website here.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

If you love Star Focal, you’ll love the Starbox!

Last month I introduced you to a company called Starlooks and their wonderful subscription box called the Starbox. Each Starbox comes with 3-4 products from Starlooks that together has a value of at least $35 or more. This month (September) was an extra special treat as it contained 6 products, and even a separate bonus item! I was so happy to receive my box, and I could not wait to try the products inside!

This months box included an eye shadow palette with 5 different colors, shadow primer and some really cute gems that you can use around your eyes. Also just like every other Starbox it contained some crystals to help attract positive energy, and maintain focus!

I tend to use a lot of bright colors when I wear makeup. So when I first saw this palette I was a little disappointed because they all looked pretty much like the same color to me. As I started messing around with them I realized how wrong I was. Although they are all similar and have the same base color they are all very pretty and very unique. While they may not look like much they really made my eyes stand out, which was a refreshing change from the bright colors I normally use. I could tell just by looking at the palette that the Starlooks eyeshadow was going to be creamy and would work really well with my skin.
They also sent their eye primer. When I first looked at the primer I thought that it was almost going to have the same effect as chap stick. It looked like a similar consistency, so I got a little worried. Other primers I have used are normally more of a liquid feel and are similar to the consistency of lotion. I was surprised to find that the primer was actually a lot different than it looks. I was very glad to find that it was very smooth, and absorbed into my skin really well.

Just so that you can see the difference not only in the colors, but to see the difference it makes to use the primer here is some swatches for you.
Without primer

After primer
The primer worked great, and definitely made a huge difference in the eye shadow quality. Most importantly it did not leave my skin greasy or make the eyeshadow clump or have streaks like some primers do.

The last item in the box was a little tube filled with gold and opaque gems. I was really exited to be able to use them with everything else! They are probably my favorite of all the products just because of all the possibilities of designs I could use them for.

Okay, so now that you know what was in the box I’m sure you want to know my opinion and see what I did with it right? Well here we go!
I decided to put to use the liner I received in the last Starbox along with 4 out of the 5 shades in the palette, as well as 3 of the opaque gems. I really loved how all of the products came together, and I loved how simple it looked.

I think its great that I can still have all my colors while still not having my eyes looking too dramatic. I loved how long all of my eye makeup stayed on. I woke up the next morning and it was all still there!
For only $15 a month you really cannot lose with Starbox. The products are worth at least double what you spend and you get to try new things. I know that for me at least you pretty much have to force me into a new style to see how it looks before I will buy anything. If you find something you like in your box you can always buy more of that same item from their store. You can find Starlooks and their amazing Starbox on their website here. Make sure you let them know that Star Focal sent you!

Sunbeam Heated Pet Bed Insert Review

My dog loves to sleep at the foot of my bed. I don’t blame her because I’m sure my bed is way warmer then her bed. Sometimes I just want to sleep in my bed without a dog permanently attached to my feet. Sunbeam offers a small heater that you can place in your pets bed so that they can stay warm all night without needing to use your feet for their own personal heaters.
I love this heater because you can lift up the cushion of you pets bed and place it directly inside. You don’t need to do anything special with it, and it helps keep their bed warm. I also really like that it has a built in temperature gauge that keeps your pets bed at the heat recommended by veterinarians (102.5 F).

My dog is extremely spoiled. When she is not in our bed she is wrapped up in her own blanket on the floor, but she always climbs back up into the bed by the next morning. With the Heated Pet Bed Insert my dog stays warm in her bed so she is not as likely to get up and climb into our bed.I love that I don’t need to go out and buy her a new bed just so that she can be warm. This insert fits in just about any pet bed, so your dog can sleep even better in their favorite bed.

All you have to do is place it in your pets bed and plug it in, so it is very simple to use.

Care For Our World Activity Set Review

I don’t know how well story time goes at your house, but at mine it is very hard to get my kids to sit still through a whole book without being promised something first. Which is why I love this next product.
The Care For Our World Activity Set not only includes a book to read to your children, but also includes punch out animals like the ones in the story, as well as an area to play with them on. It’s very easy to keep your child’s attention while reading to them because they can act out the story as you are reading it to them. I love how thick the pieces are, and out easily everything fits together.

My kids love to play with this set whether or not I am reading them the story. So not only so you get a good book to read for them, but you kids also get a great toy that they can play with. It comes with dozens of punch out animals, so your child will have a blast letting you know which is their favorite, and also learning about all of the different animals.
The book itself is really great. Your children will learn about all of the different animals, and other wild life while also learning about how to take care of them. Which is something I believe all kids should learn about. With this gift set they can learn about taking care of their world the easiest way possible, while having fun!
One thing I did not like about this set is that the punch outs were not numbered, and did not have any names on them. The piece the all the punch outs come out of has names next to each piece but unless you keep that piece and put all the cut outs back each time after you are done playing it would be very hard to keep track of which animal goes to which stand. Even a bigger box would solve that problem just because you would be able to just set them in the box instead of taking them apart. Either way I do still love this set, and all of its many pieces. I think that this is a great set for families like mine that have a hard time sitting down for story time.
You can find this and many other story time sets, as well as other great products on their website here.

Mavea Water Pitcher Review and Giveaway **Closed**

I hate drinking water from the faucet. Not only is it not clean, but its never cold enough. Sure you can buy a filter that connects to your faucet but the water will still not be cold enough, and then you have an awkward filter to deal with. I received the Mavea Elemaris XL pitcher in purple to review.
I was very surprised at how easy it was to put this pitcher together. Within minutes I was able to drink crystal clear water. Before this pitcher I never really wanted to look at what the water that comes out of my faucet looks like, but since I had the pitcher I wanted to compare the two. I could not believe how gross the water that I’ve been drinking is! I could see so much that I really wish I hadn’t seen. My house is very old, so I have always been worried about what the old pipes might be doing to my water. I was so happy to get this pitcher, and I am so happy with the results. I can finally drink my water and not be worried about what else I am drinking with it.
Not only does the Elemaris pitcher work great, but it looks amazing too! I got purple, which of course is perfect for me! It has a very sleek design, and is perfect for any kitchen. Its design is not only for looks, but has a wonderful purpose as well. This pitcher can also fit into the door of your refrigerator. It is also designed so that you don’t have to take it apart to fill it with water. All you have to do is stick it under the faucet and fill it up through the hole on the top. With two babies taking apart a water pitcher to fill it is the last thing that I want to think about.
Another thing that I don’t want to worry about is remembering when I need to change the filter. The Elemaris has what is called the Mavea Smart Meter which tells you when you need to change the filter. So no more guessing about when you put the filter in or when you have to change it. This pitcher makes it so easy to have fresh, clean drinking water that I can’t believe I didn’t get one before.

You can find this and other great Mavea products on their website here.

Orange Guard Review

Recently my house has been attacked by ants. We have tried just about everything safe to use around my babies and my dog. We even tried using cinnamon which we have been told would at least help, but instead made things worse! Nothing was working, and I was about to give up and use something I was not comfortable with.
Enough was enough! It was time to get rid of all the ants! I received Orange Guard to review, and I could not be more excited! Orange Guard is safe enough to use around food, pets, and even kids. Of course you still wouldn’t want to eat it, but you don’t have to worry about spraying it while they are in the room, or cleaning out everything in your kitchen before spraying it.

The spray itself smells like oranges. Which is a very nice change to the normal ant killer. Normally the smell of cleaners, or bug repellants give me headaches, but Orange Guard smells great and makes my house smell like I had just peeled a whole bunch of oranges. The thing I did not like about the spray is how long it would linger. If I don’t wipe down where I had sprayed the Orange Guard it would stay there for days, which would be great for use outdoors, but not for using in my kitchen which was where the majority of my problem was. It’s definitely not something that I want left all over my floors and counters.

Personally, I would not consider Orange Guard as a permanent solution to your ant problem, but it did help kill the ants, and helped the majority of them from coming back. I think that this product would be great to use in addition to an outdoor bug killer, or for use with very small and problems. Overall I would recommend this products to anyone that has pets, or children and would like something to protect your house while also keeping your loved ones safe.

Safe Glow LED Dog Collar Review

I hate walking my dog at night. I used to go to all sorts of lengths to make sure that I didn’t have to take her out when it is dark. The street in front of our house is very busy and is at the end of a blind corner, so I am always afraid of our dog getting hit by the people speeding by. I received a Safe Glow LED Dog Collar to review for you guys.

Like I said earlier, I am constantly worried about my dog crossing our road. I feel so much better knowing that my dog can be seen when wearing this collar. Not only is it cute, but it serves a purpose too. This collar has a button on it that activates LED lights that have multiple pattern functions. You can have the collar blink, or you can have it stay lit. Since having this collar I have not had to change the batteries despite accidentally leaving it on overnight multiple times.
Another thing I really like about this collar is that it is pretty heavy duty. By that I mean the clip does not pull apart easily if you pull on it. And the loop is also very sturdy so I don’t have to worry about her tags falling off, or the loop breaking from the tension of the leash. I personally think that even a big dog would not be able to pull this leash apart.
I may only use this collar for walking my dog, but you can use it for many other things. I know that my parents dog will often run out at night, and since she has black fur it is very hard to find her and get her to come back to them. The Safe Glow Collar I think would really help in a situation where your dog runs off at night, or even if you have an outside dog and just want to be able to see where they are.
I love being able to show my friends and family new things, and this is one of those new things that everyone seems to really like. No one wants their best friend to be hurt or lost and this product will help make sure that your dog is safe. I would pay just about anything to keep my dog safe and this is one of those things that I think anyone with pets should have.
You can find these amazing collars on their website here.

Starlooks Box Review

We all want the latest makeup products, but how do we know if they will work for us? Of course you can look for makeup review on this site, or any other review site. Which is wonderful, and I’m glad you’re here for this review. Although there are many other options for you to test out the latest and greatest makeup products. So what is this other option? There are companies out there, that for a monthly fee, will send you samples of these awesome products. One of these wonderful companies is Starlooks.
I was able to receive Starlooks August Starbox which features some really awesome products that were hand picked by Lauren Bradley. The box I received was their first special edition box, and I definitely have to agree that it was special! My box came with some very pretty pink lip gloss and some really gorgeous eyeliner.
Before I talk about the products let me talk about the focus of this box, Lauren Bradley. Lauren is a very famous fashion designer that has worked with Heidi Klum, Regina Spektor, Chris Martin, and many more. She believes that every woman should look no further than our natural form to find our true beauty. I was very excited to try the products that she picked for this box.

The lip gloss is very pretty. The color is absolutely amazing, and lasted way longer than a lot of glosses I have used before. Not only is the bottle pretty, but the brush is really awesome and makes it really easy to apply. The lip gloss itself is not too thick, and creates a perfect shine on my lips. It surprisingly also helped moisturize my lips, which was a major plus.
The second product included in the box was one of my new favorite makeup products, eye liner. Until recently I have not ever really been introduced into the makeup world. I have only really seen what is included in the cheap sections of store like Target or Walgreens. Because of my blogging adventures I have learned what good makeup is really like. This particular eye liner comes in a jar and you use a brush to apply it. This type of eyeliner is VERY new to me, so I was excited to compare it to traditional eye liner.
This eyeliner almost looks gold in the jar, but is a lot darker on the eyes, which is great for me. I hate that when using cheap eye liner you get this awkward mirror effect from it. If you try to get rid of it you end up ruining the rest of your makeup. What seems like something that is too thick to put on your eyes ends up being extremely easy to apply. It glides on like no other liner I have ever used, it does not create a mirror effect, and it stays on for hours. Not only that but it does not crack, and dries very quickly. I even left it on over night and the majority was still there.

I really like my Starbox, and for $15 I believe you get more then your monies worth. Their products are really great, and their customer service is also great. You can find Starlooks on their website here.

MindWare Toys Review

It’s not often that we, as parents, can find a toy that not only is entertaining to our kids but also educational at the same time. That’s where MindWare toys comes in. Not only do they have great toys that are both parent and kid approved, but their toys also help educate, and stimulate your child’s mind.
http://s.shld.net/is/image/Sears/05219286000_20100611080120728?hei=315&wid=315&op_sharpen=1&resMode=sharp&op_usm=0.9,0.5,0,0

We received MindWare’s Pattern Play Which is a board with 40 different blocks, and each color is a different size. The goal of the game is to make different patterns using the blocks. If also comes with a bag to place everything in, and even comes with little cards that have different designs that your child can try to duplicate.
While I knew my daughter would love this toy, I really had no idea how much. As soon as I took it out of the box she began tearing at the packaging. She started playing with the blocks before I could even get the plastic off of the box. Every day since we have gotten the Pattern Play she will point to it and beg for us to sit down and play. If I let her, she will play with it for hours!
My daughter is only 2 years old, and just turned 2, while this toy is for ages 3+. She may not be able to play with it like a 3 year old, or be able to really understand what your supposed to do with it, but she loves to hand me the blocks and loves to put them where she thinks they should go. Because of this game my daughter can not only recognize colors, but knows which colors are which and can now even say the names of each color. I knew that this toy would be a great tool to teach her these things and more, but I had no idea how fast it would help. It took a matter of days to understand it all!
One thing I suggest to anyone who owns this game, would be to put the blocks up when you or your child are not playing with it, and to make sure you keep track of all the blocks. Even just loosing one piece would make it difficult to make the patterns.
Our Pattern Play is definitely a game that will be around my house for a long time! I would highly recommend this toy to anyone looking for something different for their family that gets both themselves and their children thinking!
You can find this and other great MindWare games on their website here.
