Warmly Yours Under Desk Heater Review

I hate sitting at the desk when its cold outside. My feet always get too cold and its difficult to keep them warm. Warmly Yours has come up with a great solution for cold feet at the desk, a under desk heater!
Warmly Yours is a really great company that offers some really great heating products. They have a heater for just about anything you can think of! When looking through their website I found a copy of their core values that I would love to share with you:

“Here at WarmlyYours, we believe that the word, “radiant,” goes far beyond our heating products, it resonates in our company culture and to the very depths of who we are. We believe that “radiant” is a way of life – a definition of our living brand. To us, our brand is not simply a logo or a product, but it’s our reality.
When we say, BE RADIANT at WarmlyYours, it’s not just a thought or a suggestion – but rather, we take it as a commandment, a charge, a deeper calling to be our best selves, while positively encouraging our peers to be the same.
So, what does it mean to BE RADIANT as a WarmlyYours employee? To BE RADIANT means to let your inspiration drive you to take projects to the next level; to achieve excellence through our “blood, sweat, and tears;” to create a full radiant experience for the customer; to go above and beyond for each other and for our customers; to seek to professionally and personally improve each other and ourselves; to be compelled and propelled by new ideas and innovations.”

I thought that this really makes the company stand out from some others. I love that they work so hard to bring us the best products they can. And their products look really great!

Under Desk Heater
Now back to the Under Desk Heater. I love that it can fit easily under my desk, and keeps my feet warm. It is a pretty Merlot color that looks great with just about everything, and it is extremely soft and cozy. I love that I can kick off my shoes and still be able to keep my feet warm.

The only issue that we had with the heater was when my husband decided that it would be great for our dog to lay on. He ended up leaving it on for at least 2 days and it ended up burning the sheet. Luckily we caught it in time before anything else happened and both the sheet and the heater are fine. Just don’t leave it on for more than a couple hours.

I would recommend this product to anyone that works in an office that just gets a little too cold. It really does help beat that winter chill. You can find this and other artfully crafted products on their website here.

Kisspat Hair Color Chalk Review

I love having colors in my hair, but sometimes I don’t want to keep that certain color permanently. For this Halloween I wanted to be able to share my love of hair color with my daughters but obviously cannot justify dying a toddlers hair pink. Of course you could use the colored hair sprays or gel but they never stay in very long and for most of us do not get very bright either. So you end up spending a decent amount of money on products that you will only use once that don’t even work in the first place.

One of the latest trends has been Hair Chalk. Hair Chalk is very similar to pastels but is for hair. It stays in your hair for a long time, and will wash out easily with soap and water. I love how many different color options there are. To color your hair you can either dampen your hair or the chalk itself and apply it to your hair. The only issue that I have come across is that not only does it color your hair but it also colors your hands and depending on what area of your hair you are coloring it can color your clothes as well. I would not recommend color chalk to someone that wants to color their entire head of hair on a daily basis, but for someone that wants to color parts of their hair on special occasions this product is perfect.

The ends of my hair are a faded shade of pink. I decided to try out the chalk by using the black to color my hair somewhat the same color as my natural hair. It covered the pink great! It did leave my hair a little stiff, but no more than hairspray and with the bright color I couldn’t complain. Not only did I try this product on myself, but I also had my best friend and my daughter use it. I was very surprised that the color not only worked on my daughters blonde hair but also my friends brown hair.

I love that Kisspat comes with so many colors. You can choose just one color, or you can do a whole rainbow of colors. Your hair definitely will not be boring when you are using these colors! I definitely think that every girl should have color chalk. You never know when you’re going to want to spice things up!

Before and After (colors used: purple, red, dark blue)

You can find this and other great Kisspat products 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.

Beauty Box 5 Review

I recently received a sample from Beauty Box 5′s subscription service. If you don’t already know, a sample subscription service will send you samples of different products every month for a small fee. Most of the time you end up getting more than your monies worth of products. It’s a very great idea, and with so many options you are bound to find at least on that you like.

This month Beauty Box 5′s box had the following samples:
Easy Peeling – New Face Effect
Blinc Mascara
Pur-lisse makeup remover
Becca Eye Tint
Everyday Minerals – mineral blush
I loved the Easy Peeling wipes. They were scratchy but they really helped my skin, and they felt much better than a traditional skin peel. I did not like the Blinc Mascara, I’m not sure whether it was because of the small tube or if it was just the product, but I really didn’t like it. The Pur-lisse makeup remover was really nice. It helped remove my makeup, and left my skin feeling very clean and very soft. The Becca Eye Tint was very interesting, but worked very well and stayed on for hours. Last but not least, the Everyday Minerals Blush was very nice, but I don’t normally wear any kind of blush.
I love that Beauty Box 5 comes with a variety of products instead of everything being the same. Some boxes will just send you a box full of eye shadows and call it a day. With Beauty Box you always know that what your getting will be an adventure, and you will probably find something that you will continue to purchase after your samples are gone. You can find Beauty Box 5 on their website here.

Emmi-dent Utrasound Whitening Toothbrush!

I know how much all of you love white teeth! But I also know that none of us want to pay hundreds of dollars to get our teeth professionally whitened, and most of us don’t want to use at-home chemicals to do it either. So now what? Since starting this blog I have had the opportunity to try many different teeth whitening products, and I can honestly say that this next product surpasses them all.
What looks like an ordinary electric toothbrush is actually something really amazing! Of course most toothbrushes out their promise to help give you those sparkly white teeth you deserve, but do any of them actually do so? In my personal experience these other toothbrushes may in fact give you results but those results do not appear until months later. With the Emmi-dent 6 Ultrasonic Toothbrush you don’t have to wait months to see results, you can see results in a matter of days!

My teeth before and after Emmi-dent :)
At first I was skeptical of Emmi-dents claims about how fast their toothbrush works, but I was very eager to get the answers for you guys. Two days after using this toothbrush I could already feel the difference. My teeth were so much smoother, and I could even tell a difference in the color and overall appearance of my teeth. I can honestly say that I have never been happier with any other toothbrush.
Did you know that your average toothbrush cleans by applying abrasive particles found in toothpaste that can damage the enamel in your teeth? When I found this out I was shocked! So what makes Emmi-dent different from other toothbrushes? Emmi-dent works with what they call “nano-bubble” toothpaste that does not contain harsh abrasives, and that works with the ultrasound technology to not only clean your teeth but to also protect your enamel. Another great thing that this toothbrush does is that it cleans where your average toothbrush does not. Because it cleans with ultrasound instead of just bristles, the Emmi-dent can reach where other brushes do not and is able to lift the deeper stains from your teeth.
I love that the Emmi-dent not only comes with a stand, but it also comes with two brush heads and the toothpaste. So both me and my husband can use the same toothbrush by just using two different brush heads. What also really surprised me is how cheap the brush heads and the toothpaste is on their website. I thought that it would be very expensive to continue to use this brush when in my own experience it is actually cheaper in the long run to own an Emmi-dent than any other toothbrush. Not only do you get two for the price of one, but the accessories are cheaper than most other brands. Not to mention the great results you get from using it!

I would highly recommend this product to anyone that is looking for white teeth. I love my Emmi-dent and everything about it, and I’m sure you will too!

You can find out more about Emmi-dent on their website here.

Radio Flyer "How Do You Roll?" Groove Glider Scooter Review and Giveaway **Closed**

I remember when I was younger and everyone had a scooter, and if you didn’t have one you were not cool. I begged and begged until finally I got a scooter for Christmas. Other than the fact that it was blue and not pink I could not have been happier. Now that I have two little girls I live for those moments that make my girls happy. I was able to get Radio Flyer’s new Groove Glider to review, and not only was I excited but my little one was super excited to help me review her new toy.
When we first got the box we could not wait to open it, and as soon as my little girl saw it she pointed to the picture and said “cute!” She is two years old so any compliments from her mean a lot. I was a little surprised that we had to put it together, but it was very simple and took a matter of minutes to do. I could not believe how cute the scooter is. Its white and pink which is perfect for my little princess!
Now on to the fun part, learning to ride a scooter! Like I said earlier my daughter is only 2, so it will be a while before she will fully grasp the concept of riding a scooter. Even so she has learned to ride it for about a foot before falling over. It is very simple to ride, and is sturdy enough for me to show her how to ride it although I would not recommend it for adults. Another great feature is that the handle bar is adjustable so you can trust that it wont be too tall or too short for your princess to ride. My daughter will ask all day to ride her “Wee” and I love watching her learn to ride it. I know that this scooter will be around for a while and I know that her and her little sister will love it until they are too old for it.
So why is this scooter called the Groove Glider? Each Groove Glider Scooter comes with a removable mp3 speaker! You can connect virtually any mp3 player, such as your iPod, to the speaker and your little girl can listen to their favorite songs while they ride their favorite scooter. Since it is white and pink it will match just about anything so it can be placed on other toys she has or even her backpack. It also has a little mesh sleeve on the inside so that you know your mp3 player will be safe.
I definitely think that any little girl would be very lucky to get this scooter! My little girl loves her scooter and I’m sure yours will too! You can find this and other great Radio Flyer toys on their website here.
