Review: SOCOO Travel Coffee Mug

I absolutely love this mug! I received it from Tomoson for a fair and honest review and I am so excited about this product. I have gone through my fair share of coffee mugs and either hated them or they broke so quickly I didn’t even get a chance to enjoy them. I have never had a travel mug that I was truly satisfied. I had one that had a weird seam in it and the coffee seeped in it and rotted, so my coffee always smelled rotten. It was horrible.

So I had really low expectations of this product upon receiving it just because of my prior experiences. (This was my first time trying this brand) So when I got it I first started looking it over for something to hate, a seam inside of it or a lid that leaked all over the place. But NO! I it has NO SEAM on the inside and the lid is super tight and leak proof! I did a shake it all over the place test and it passed! 🙂

I am super happy with this coffee mug and not only does it pass my inspection but it also keeps my coffee hot longer than an hour. I poured some coffee, put the lid on it and left it on the cabinet. A few hours later I came back to it and it was still hot, not piping hot like when I poured it but definitely not holy shit I need to reheat this asap. I love it and now my husband tries to steal it! I am extremely happy with this product and will wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone!

Mine came in black but it is available in an ombre gold color. I also Definitely go check it out and buy one for yourself! It is a little pricey but totally worth it and let’s face it there are others out there that are more expensive but horrible lol. So go buy this and enjoy it as much as I do!

Review: VenusCare Natural Mulberry Silk Sleep Mask

 

I received this product from Tomoson for a fair and honest review! I LOVE this sleep mask! It is super velvety smooth and I can’t believe how lightweight it is! It is a durable fabric yet silky and soft enough that it won’t cause any irritation on your skin when you wear it.

IMG_20180121_155758.jpg

The strap is easily adjustable and it does not get tangled in my hair! It is also compact enough that I can easily tuck it into my purse/carry-on or a suitcase. It is definitely worth the money!

IMG_20180121_155757.jpg

The beautiful turquoise color is so serene and literally I can’t get over how soft this is! You will love it!! It blocks out lots of light while still being light on your face. I don’t like masks that are too tight on my eyes and make me feel claustrophobic. This one is super light on your face unless if you like it tighter on your eyes then it comes with a strap that is easy to adjust! There is heavy duty stitching all over this mask so you know it will last a long time. It is well made and a great price!! I definitely recommend it! Head on over to Amazon and check it out for yourself!

Review: Travel Sleep Mask

 

 

I received this product from Tomoson for a fair and honest review. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I truly like this product! We don’t travel often but when we do it is so difficult for me to catch any sleep if it is at all light outside. This completely solves my problems!

IMG_20180121_155735.jpg

This is a very soft and silky fabric. The beautiful blue of this mask is vibrant and dark enough to block out all sunlight. It has a velcro strap on the back of it where it hooks together and can be loosened or tightened as needed.

 

The only thing I did not like about this mask was the way the velcro strap was placed. It is in a weird place so instead of each piece of fabric crossing over each other to lay flat against the head it sticks out awkwardly.

IMG_20180121_155742.jpg         IMG_20180109_202820.jpg

 

For me this is not a huge deal just a pain in the rear when you want to lay your head back. It is definitely in the way, if they could rework it so it would lay flat I would give it 5 stars!

Other than the weird velcro placement I loved this mask and I will continue to use and enjoy it.  It is super comfortable and doesn’t smoosh my eyes or get tangled in my hair. Overall I like it and I would recommend it.

Review: Sviuse Women’s Summer Strapless Sleeveless V-neck Casual Split Beach Prom High Maxi Long Dress


 

IMG_20180118_160553.jpg

 

I received this product from Tomoson for a fair and honest review. I was pleasantly surprised about how nice this dress is. It is definitely better than what I was expecting. The fabric is very soft, stretchy and light. If you don’t like clingy things then this is definitely not for you. This dress is form fitting and hugs your body tightly! I wear a size 12 in jeans so I ordered the large and it is pretty snug on me. I like it though, but I will not be wearing it in public without a sweater over it! I am not a fan of clingy/showy outfits.

IMG_20180118_160529.jpg

It also has to be worn with a bra, the fabric is not thick enough to cover certain areas if perhaps there is a cool breeze you might encounter. (if you catch my drift lol) The spaghetti straps on the dress are also very thin which will not cover a bra strap, which is another reason to pair it with a cute sweater!

I love the color of it and it is super comfortable. I love the way it flows at the bottom and is just overall super comfy. I definitely would recommend this dress. It is a cute and comfortable summer outfit that would be perfect for going out in! The pictures definitely don’t do it justice. The color is a very vibrant orange and it is so pretty!! AND the texture of this dress is amazing! LOVE IT!

Review: AncordWorks Bluetooth Shower Speaker

 

IMG_20180109_185405.jpg

I received this product from Tomoson for a fair and honest review. I have never had a portable, let alone waterproof, Bluetooth speaker. I was excited to have the opportunity to review this specific product. So upon arrival, I couldn’t wait to get it out of the box!

To my surprise this tiny little speaker was full of fascinating features! So to begin with, it is waterproof and made to be used in the shower. It even has a hook to attach it to your shower head which is super handy! If you have to large of a pipe on your shower head don’t fret! It has a fat, flattened side that makes it capable of sitting on its own.

IMG_20180109_191014.jpg

Secondly, it gives you two different options for your music listening pleasure 🙂 It has obviously the option to be used with your phone’s bluetooth but it also has the option to download music on to a small SD card. This tiny little SD card can be inserted into the flash drive (that is included) to plug into your computers USB port and from there you can download your favorite tunes! Then once you have your fav music added just take the tiny little SD card and insert it into the card slot on the bluetooth speaker.

It also comes with a charger so you don’t have to worry about corroded or dead batteries. This thing is seriously an awesome speaker!

IMG_20180109_191902.jpg

It is tiny but it packs a giant punch. I was not expecting it to be capable of being very loud. Boy was I wrong, this thing can get LOUD! Which is awesome! It is totally worth the money and I would MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this product! It would also be perfect for outdoor functions or even camping. I am seriously considering using it my car since it is bluetooth capable! There are lots of possibilities for this amazing little speaker!

Review: StabilityAce Upper Back Posture Corrector Brace

I received this product from Tomoson for a fair and honest review. My husband has had back pain in his upper back due to an injury in high school for as long as I have known him. He has tried numerous different braces and has been to numerous different chiropractors with only minimal or temporary relief. When I seen that this product was available I jumped on the opportunity to try it out.

He loves it. It fits nicely on his back and it is easily adjustable. It is the perfect thing for him to use at school while he is on his feet most of the day. It is also easily put on under his polo shirt to hide the fact that he is wearing it. It is comfortable, yet it has enough of a support in it that it helps him keep his back straightened therefore relieving his pain. He has worn this brace everyday for the past several days and he has seen a noticeable difference in how he feels.

It is a great product for a reasonable price! I definitely recommend this product and so does my husband! It is the first brace that has really helped him while staying comfortable, there is no rubbing and it is easily adjusted.

Review: Skinosm Blackhead Removal Tweezers Tool Kit, 6 piece set

 

IMG_20180107_200022.jpg

I received this product from Tomoson for a fair and honest review. I don’t normally suffer from pimples or blackheads. There is the occasional stressed out moments where it causes me to have giant pimples which is super annoying! 🙂

Anyways, I really liked this kit because it comes with things that help for cleaning out your pores as well. There are six different tools in this kit and it all comes in a nice shiny little case that makes it easy to keep track of the tools. Each of the tools has a specific function The kit comes with a nice instruction manual on what each tool is used for and how to properly use it. Each tool is handy for a different function which is awesome! You can use  any one of them or you can just use one or two of them. Either way you have a great tool kit to combat your acne and blackhead issues. Also great for cleaning out pores!

You definitely need to be careful with the needle tool, it is very sharp and can do some major damage if not used correctly.

IMG_20180107_200050

I think overall it is a great product for the price. Very handy if used correctly, but again could cause some serious damage (maybe even cause a scar or infection, I know that is extreme but seriously be careful)

Maker:0x4c,Date:2017-10-1,Ver:4,Lens:Kan03,Act:Lar01,E-veA great how to manual included with the kit!

 

Maker:0x4c,Date:2017-10-1,Ver:4,Lens:Kan03,Act:Lar01,E-veA nice description of what each tool is for.

 

I definitely recommend this product. It is easily usable and if used correctly a perfect addition to your face cleaning products.

“Hijacked: A Science Fiction Space Opera Adventure (Scion Book 2.5)” ~Michael J. Allen~ Review

 51VJ-2pae2L

Synopsis:

Manc Shepherd is alive, desperate and mad as hedrin.

Before the hunt for payback even begins, the Corollas’s deadliest killers target Manc as prey. Down to his last, most treacherous allies and his father’s old fighters, Manc races against death to find the hapless boy who has endangered Manc’s schemes by systematically foiling ambush, assassination, and betrayal.

Two problems stand in the way of Manc piecing back together his doomed, lifelong vendetta. Alaric Ignaree has vanished, and the kid reminds Manc of the father he is desperate to avenge.

Manc knows Alaric’s weakness, but how far will Manc blur the line between hero and villain to achieve justice? Moreover, can he kill the boy that he always wanted to become?

Author:

 Born beneath the pendulous thunderheads of the Pacific Northwest, Michael J. Allen loves splashing in the rain, the crack of thunder and the feeling of wind on his skin. Now relocated to rural Georgia and freed from warden duty over his former teenagers, the multi-genre author enjoys hikes with his Labradors – Myth and Magesty, studying historic methods of beating people with sticks in the SCA, and hanging out with the Starfleet International crew of the USS DaVinci. Being born waterlogged and subsequently warped by the likes of Bill Cosby, Robin Williams, Gene Wilder and Danny Kay, he has an odd sense of humor that often skips him merrily into situations of communicable insanity, impromptu sugar cravings or sudden launches into nonsensical song.

Living near forests and oceans and the park used to film Errol Flynn’s Adventures of Robin Hood, he loves adventure of all kinds whether it be pirates or dragons, books or movies, video games or even new and exotic recipes to sate his love of cooking. His story telling talents first manifested when high school friends introduced him to the Star Trek pen and paper RPG and later Dungeons & Dragons. He explored every game he could get his hands on and eventually was drafted to create the games. A recovering Game Master, he abandoned RPGs for writing because real live players never played the story out the way he saw it in his head – apparently neither do fictional characters. Michael followed his dreams into US Navy submariner service in hopes of joining NASA and realizing his lifelong affection for building and exploding things in outer space. Fortunately for readers, though he fell short of the stars, his love of space and engineering blossomed into science fiction worlds like his bestselling Scion series. Now he commits his dreams onto paper, scribbling wherever the adventure leads through fantastic urban environs, eldritch woods or streaking across the stars, and taking pleasure in the simple hope that people enjoy the adventure within his pages.

Review:

 

Luckily I had already read the first book in this series “Scion of Conquered Earth: A Science Fiction Space Opera Adventure” or I would have been completely lost! These definitely need to be read in order to fully understand and appreciate the story and the characters.

Based on the first book I was pretty excited to get my hands on this book! It is a great series, packed with lots of twists and turns! The characters are well developed and you can’t help but love them quirks and all. They each are going through something troublesome in their lives that makes them even more personable. The plot is well developed, but you definitely should start with the first book in the series. You get a better sense of the main characters and learn even more about them in this book. They are way more developed and like you have known them your whole life. We really get to know them and I loved it! The main woman character is a badass and shes completely awesome! I can’t wait to see what happens in the third book! I really enjoyed this series, it’s science-y and full of outer space alien goodness. Would definitely recommend this series 🙂

“Unchained: A Science Fiction Space Opera Adventure (Scion Book 3) ~Michael J. Allen~ Review

 

51mdq4dQeFL

Synopsis:

Alaric’s crusade against slavery backfires when the Corollas unknowingly capture and collar him once more. Enslaved as a pit fighter side by side with his old enemy, Manc Shepherd, Alaric must survive to break his chains.

A mysterious huntress pursues Alaric, ultimately ingratiating herself with Tyne in order to get close to Alaric and complete her contract. War hero Commodore Bruce Dolan det Regis does everything he can to find Alaric—including recruit, cajole and extort Alaric’s one time friends.

Missing, beaten and bathed in blood, Alaric finds new and old allies in the pit that help transform him into a killing machine. Coming sword to sword with a refugee Alaric’s schemes sold into slavery, he chooses to defy his owner, the Dominari, in a way that reveals his location.

Enemies and allies race to the Dominari’s doorstep. They demand she turn Alaric over, refusing to divulge his identity. She pledges to kill Alaric and burn Scrics Three to the ground before surrendering her prize. When she learns Alaric’s identity, the Dominari organizes a public spectacle that forces him to kill his friends or die.

Alaric rescues Manc as he affects an escape and returns to the stars. Pelson and the others waylay Alaric en route to rebuild the destroyed Cassiopeia, revealing Alaric’s true identity. Still reeling from these revelations, Alaric witnesses the destructive atrocities of a bold, new Corollas juggernaut.

Will Alaric choose an easy life with a family he can’t remember or rid the Protectorate of slavery once and for all with the help of a KIOSC-shortcutting hack, a new crew and the new Cassiopeia?

This is the perfect wrap up for the series. It is a great series that you need to start from the beginning with. It is full of science fiction and alien goodness.
