Review: Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones

I have never owned a pair of wireless headphones, I just don’t use them that often. My husband on the other hand loves them and has had several pairs of them over the years. I was asked to review these noise canceling bluetooth headphones and let’s just say my interest was piqued once I seen the picture of them. They are unlike any other bluetooth headphones that I have ever been around. They are just earbuds. How can these work? They claim to be noise canceling, sweatproof and much more. I was skeptical to say the least.

Upon arrival, I was impressed with how they were packaged. Nice outer box that houses the headphones/charging unit, the charging cord and extra earbud covers. All of it nice and orderly, just like I like it. I was surprised by how small they are. I’m not usually a fan of the earbuds that have the squishy piece that has to fit down in your ear, I just don’t like how they feel in my ears. I guess this is where the noise canceling part comes in lol, because once they are in everything is muffled.

I was a little frustrated though because the package does not come with any type of instructions. No way of knowing how to use it I just started pushing buttons and messing around with it. I had the hardest time getting it to connect to my bluetooth on my Google Pixel. It was very frustrating! Once I did get it connected only one of the headphones worked. What the hell!? I was so confused! I finally got on Amazon to read other reviews, surely I was not the only one that was having this many issues. I figured at this point I would have to write a bad review because I was so irritated.

IMG_20190108_071517

Well, low and behold, there were instructions on the product page on Amazon. So first of all, that is ridiculous, add a damn instruction booklet to your product. Save your consumer a little bit of hassle please! Even when I found the instructions on Amazon, I still could not get them to work. At this point I was ready to throw the entire thing across the room. So not to ruin the product, I gave myself a time out and came back to it later.

IMG_20190108_071551

I finally got it to work and both are functioning correctly and have good sound quality. I still can’t figure out why it pauses when I touch the earbud, because there is no instruction on how to use it while it is functioning. According to Amazon it has the ability to use only one earbud at a time, which to me is weird. If I am going to listen to music or workout I will be using both earbuds.

Overall this is a strange product, not sure how to use it but if you finally get it to work then it works well. The sound is great and when it actually continually plays without pausing it is nice to use. I haven’t tried them while working out yet, but my concern with that is them falling out while running. I don’t like that you have to shove them in your ears so far for them to be in tightly but some people like them this way (my husband for example). I like the hard plastic ones and nothing will sway me from those! I want to see some bluetooth headphones with the hard plastic earbuds! Who’s with me!? 🙂 They are kind of pricey and are super confusing to use. I’m not sure if I would recommend them or not, the concept is great but not knowing how to use them is a big pain in the butt.

If you want to check them out they are available on AMAZON.

Review: Jialebi Bluetooth Headphones

img_20181210_202108

Bluetooth headphones are fantastic, easy to use and are great if you like to listen to music while exercising. My husband has been through a couple different pairs and he seems to enjoy them! I don’t ever really get a chance to use them, I’m the one who blares my music in the house for all to hear lol!

My husband however loves to use them when he runs, mows the lawn and when the football game is on and no one else is in the mood to watch it. They are handy to have around and being cordless is a big plus. This particular brand is found on Amazon. They are a great price and a pretty nice product. They are lightweight and are easy to use. They are waterproof to boot! It claims to have 15 hours of use between charging, but I didn’t test that out lol! I will take their word for it, they do last a pretty long time though.

Being rechargeable is a must and these include a USB cord to charge them. It does not come with the plug box (for the cord) but so far no brand of headphones has come with a box. It comes with replaceable earbud covers which is nice in case you lose one or something happens to one of them. Overall, this is a great product and it is a reasonable price. Some bluetooth headphones on the market are pretty steep in price and I just can’t see spending a ton on them, especially with kids and animals in the house lol.

img_20181210_202619

The best thing about this brand of headphones is the fact that the entire thing is flexible. No breaking of the neckband or bending it on accident. My husband’s very first pair got snapped in half by our toddler lol. It was a bad day in our house when those got broken. But this pair is comfy, flexible and the sound quality is great. I was very impressed with these headphones and I highly recommend them.

Review: Garcinia Cambogia Weight Loss Gummies

img_20181209_185537

First of all it is very hard to review something if you have only been taking it for 20 days. So this is my honest opinion so far! I got these gummies because I have had the hardest time shedding the extra baby weight from 5 years ago lol. I have tried hard working out, eating right and cutting all of the bad crap from my diet. I just can’t seem to get rid of it.

The side effects from weight loss supplements scare me. I am always concerned about the what-ifs of anything that I might be taking. I always triple check ingredients and make sure it has nothing in it that I might be allergic to. Yes, I am that person who has drug allergies. It sucks. But I was excited to see a supplement that was claiming to be all-natural. It peaked my interest and the reviews were decent. On went my crazy researching and the results were scary.

img_20181209_1855441

Liver failure, low blood sugar, can react to allergy medicines, diarrhea, etc… The list goes on and on. It was different with each website I scrolled through. With this not being an FDA approved drug, I wasn’t sure if anything I was reading was legit because let’s face it the internet lies. I don’t care what website you are on it could be faked. There is no honest truths in this world anymore. But the things I was reading scared me enough that I honestly didn’t take it.

img_20181209_1855591

The thing that made me the most nervous was the fact that you shouldn’t take it if you are taking any kind of allergy medicine. I have the most terrible allergies and take not 1 but 2 different allergy medicines daily. Controlling those allergies are way more important to me than losing weight. So knowing that I didn’t actually take it may turn you away but that’s OK. It’s your life and if you want to try out this supplement then go ahead. Check it out, the links are below as well as the links that I found the side effects. But like it says on the bottle, check with your Dr before starting any kind of new supplement.

The price is great compared to the others on the market. It smells really good, a great pineapple flavored smell. They list what it is contained in the gummies which is the Garcinia Cambogia (a plant) and just the things needed to make it the form of a gummy. I can’t honestly give my opinion on whether or not they work, that is for you to decide.

There are so many more! I just googled the name of the supplement. The more you know! 🙂

Thanks for reading and good luck on your weight loss journey! 

Namaste! 🙂 

Review: MEIGO Magnetic Blocks

img_20181105_140443.jpg

 

This is by far my favorite kids toy! I absolutely love the magnetic blocks and the Meigo company makes great products! Every toy we have had from this company has withheld the test of time and the destructive hands of 3 little boys. These have been played roughly with for the past couple weeks and they are still as new as they were the day we got them.

 

img_20181114_135614

The kids love them and they are so fun to snap together to build whatever they could possibly imagine. This set comes with extra little fun things such as a plastic window, balcony and a door, making this an even better building set!

It comes with 51 pieces of magnetic fun! Honestly, I love playing with them just as much as my kiddos do. They are easy to put together so little hands can play with them and are also great for the older kids to build a rocket ship or house. 🙂

It is definitely engineering fun at its finest. The colors are bright and fun. Upon first trying them out I was a little worried about them breaking apart exposing the small magnets but after much playtime this is no longer a concern. The magnets are housed safely in a double layer of heavy duty plastic. They come packaged in a nice bright red drawstring bag that makes them easy to find in a playroom full of toys and also to throw easily in a to go bag. We travel to a lot of sports games and practices that my youngest gets super bored. We always have our bag of magnetic blocks with us!  I highly recommend this product and will buy them over and over again.

Review: MEIGO- Dominoes Shape Puzzle Matching Game Building Blocks

img_20181102_152446.jpg

 

My kids are big fans of any kind of building blocks. It is something that keeps them busy and they play quietly together with the blocks. They have tried out other toys from the MEIGO company and we have enjoyed all of them.  It is a company that takes pride in their products and they never cease to amaze me on the types of toys they offer. These blocks are super fun and are can be played with in several different ways!

img_20181102_160242

This domino set is a well made, heavy duty set that is great for any age. My 5,7 and 9 year old kiddos all enjoyed this set and it kept them busy for at least an hour. They love to play with them and it is something they can do together without fighting over it lol! You can put them up as regular dominoes, you can stack them to build a house (or other structure), can be used as a matching game or you can put it together as a puzzle. It is nice to have one toy that can be used in so many different ways and it comes in a great drawstring bag to keep them all together. It is something that is easy to take along with you, but something super fun for the kids to enjoy.

We are going on a road trip in a couple weeks and I will definitely be taking these along with us! The pictures on them are adorable and the kids had fun playing the matching game. I work with my youngest on preschool things at home and these are great for practicing shapes, colors and animals! 🙂 A great learning game that is fun! Make sure to check out this great set and company, you won’t regret it!

Review: The Coffee Cookie

Wondering what a coffee cookie is? The name is deceiving and it’s not actually a cookie lol! Do you have issues keeping your coffee warm? I do!! I do!!! Being a busy mom I tend to forget my coffee and then it has to be rewarmed over and over again. I also forget it’s in the microwave lol and coffee can only be rewarmed so many times before it tastes burnt!

img_20181113_074228

See that little blue thing in the picture above. This is the rescuer you need in your life if you are anything like me! It is a handy dandy little thing that goes under your coffee mug or even your to-go coffee cup to keep it warm. It starts to warm up with a flip of a button and can easily be recharged by using a USB charging cord like you have for a cellphone. It reminds me of a tiny version of a candle warmer! This thing is awesome and really does work! It can stay on for quite awhile and will heat your cup of coffee while it is sitting beside you!

img_20181113_072727

It comes in a tiny little drawstring bag with an adorable little coffee bean heart on it! I have never heard of such a contraption until I seen it in an email advertisement. I was shocked and awed over the simplicity of such a fantabulous product! I highly recommend it and will be purchasing one for my family members for a stocking stuffer this year! Would be a great gift for any coffee lover!

Review: LOVEYOUSTUDIO Bath Bombs

Bath bombs… They are the greatest freaking thing ever! 🙂 Am I right, or am I right? They are smelly good, they are relaxing and honestly they make me feel like a kid surrounded with colorful bubbly water. Seriously, the best invention and they are super fun. There are numerous different types of bath bombs so whatever you could possibly want is out there somewhere.

The LOVEYOUSTUDIO has some great things you have to check out! They have bath bombs too! Anytime I get to try out bath bombs I get super excited. This was no exception! LOVEYOUSTUDIO always sends their products in a way that make them appealing upon opening.

img_20181102_160448

These bath bombs come in an adorably decorated box to keep them safe from breakage and for great storage. Each bomb is wrapped in brown paper with a very colorful sticker to label what kind of experience you are in for when using it. The bombs are then gently surrounded by a pillow of brown strips of paper. Overall, beautiful presentation! 🙂

img_20181102_160500

This set comes with 6 different bombs and they all smell amazing. I tried out a couple of different bombs and while they smell fantastic and make my skin super soft I was a tad disappointed that they were white. I know this sounds silly but when I put a bath bomb in a steaming tub I want to see some color, I want to feel like it is actually doing something. When I dropped these into my white tub I could not see it fizzling, which let’s get real here, that’s what we buy bath bombs for. It didn’t even occur to me that they wouldn’t be colored when I unwrapped them. They are white bombs, I just assumed that some color would be patiently waiting to be released upon contact with the warm water. You know fizzle magic? Yea, that’s what I was expecting.  Unfortunately, that did not happen lol.

img_20181116_074815

I do however enjoy these bombs. They are well made and fizzle for quite a while, it is just really hard to see it. The smells are on point and you can really tell some love and care went into making this set. The set is well priced compared to some of the other bath bombs I have seen out there, especially with 6 bombs included in this beautiful box. I would highly recommend these solely on how well they are made and how great they smell. They are great quality for a great price. If you don’t mind them being colorless, then these are perfect for you. Despite my whining about the color, I really do love them and would buy them again! 🙂

Thanks for reading!! Check out this awesome set on AMAZON!

Review: TANGCISON, 2 Pack Sleep Mask

I usually end up sleeping with a pillow tucked slightly over my eyes while I sleep. I have never been a fan of eye masks because they always feel restricting and I can’t get over the claustrophobia. I always like to try out new thing so I  was excited to try these out and see if they exceeded my expectations. They did not lol! They are just the same as others I have tried. They do however have a larger velcro strap that allows for the mask to be easily adjusted. Which is a nice perk. They also come in a nice black carrying bag to keep them clean and tucked away safely for the next use.

img_20181027_193314

img_20181027_193248

There is 2 masks in the packs and they are very different. The nose pieces for each mask fit very differently. The black one is more comfortable than the pink one. The pink one is very constricting on the nose and felt like it was pushing down on the bridge of my nose. The black one was definitely more comfortable than the pink one.  My husband was nice enough to help to model and test the product! 🙂

img_20181027_193447

img_20181027_193405

They are made of a very comfortable fabric that is easily melded to your face. While I wasn’t a big fan of these but my husband did seem to like them. They fit his face better and was more comfortable for him. He recommends them! Check them out on Amazon!

Review: Atomic Matcha Tea

 

img_20181025_195743

Is Matcha tea for you? Do you follow the craze that is sweeping the nation? I’m not lol, but I was interested to see what it tastes like. Will it be sweet, tart, does it actually taste like tea? Yea, I had absolutely no idea. I was a match virgin. I was excited to try it but obviously had my reservations. IT IS SO GREEN! It smells so weird too. I honestly couldn’t get over the smell of it.

img_20181025_195802

I tried my first cup of the tea per the directions on the back of the package I was reviewing. IT SMELLS AWFUL. I don’t drink beer because I can’t get over the smell of it. This was pretty much the same situation. The smell was something I just couldn’t overcome. I disliked it before the hot green liquid could ever grace my tastebuds. I finally choked some down and I was soooooooooooo not a fan. I do not like it. It does not taste good to me and is not appetizing at all. I don’t know if it’s an acquired taste or what, I just can’t hack it.

If you would like to check out the product, you can find it on Amazon

 

Review: Freeskin Ombre Yoga Pants

In case you don’t know I am a yoga instructor and I am obsessed with yoga pants. These ombre pants made me giddy when I laid my eyes upon them. I was so excited to be able to review them. I mean, who can resist these beauties?!?

img_20181024_192058

I immediately tried them on when they arrived and I was a tad disappointed. They were very stretchy which is normally a good thing but I felt like I was trying to put on a pair of pantyhose. They were scrunchy and had so much fabric, when I finally got them on I still wasn’t so sure so I took them off and washed them. Trying them again once they got out of the wash, I was still not happy with them.

To me they were more leggings than they are yoga pants. Those are two completely different clothing items and need to be sold with clarity which you will be getting. I do not feel comfortable wearing these to any of my yoga classes. When I bent over they were see through and the crotch part of it is just weird feeling.

img_20181024_192627

They don’t fit like I expected for being advertised as yoga pants. I will definitely be keeping them for some awesome looking leggings to wear under something else or with a long shirt lol!

I am very particular about the yoga pants I wear and these do not pass the test. I do however recommend them as leggings. They are soft and a beautiful color. If you want to check them out they are on AMAZON.
