ILA Security


Do you live alone? Do you worry about safety? I have a great little product for you it is called ILA. ILA is a safety device with style they offer ila Dusk personal alarm, ila Pebble, ila Wedge, ila Sport and ila Hook. The purpose of the device is to when triggered it lets out a loud piercing high decibel scream which is designed to shock and disorient your attacker. I got the ila Dusk and ila Pebble. Dusk comes in a stylish pattern which you hook on your purse and has a chain you pull to trigger the scream. The ila Pebble is meant for your keychain and you push the center button to make the scream go off. This is a great idea if you are a runner and you are afraid with all kinds of things happening in your neighborhood or things you see on TV in other places. Also great for all college girls who want to feel safer or just your single living alone and want more comfort of being safe. You can learn more about this product by visiting www.ilasecurity.com and check them out yourself. This product has been featured on ABC, Ellen, Real Simple magazine, Shape magazine and in the goody bag at the Oscars. How concerned are you about safety? Did you know Glamour Magazine did a poll on 2010 and 60% of the women were concerned for their safety? That is a large number of women in the US.

Lunch Punch Review


I received in the mail as part of a product review Lunch Punch? If you have not heard of lunch Punch you need to. Do you have a kid who is fussy about eating bread? Do you wish you could get your child to eat more nutritiously? Well, Lunch Punch is the answer it cuts bread in cute shapes and patterns. I received the Sand*wishes Set and Critter Cutters Set. When I first found this product I was like Oh My God Cher From Mermaids remember when she use to cut sandwiches out in all those cute shapes and serve them ? I think this is a unique idea and your child will love to eat them and play with them as well. The Sand*wishes set came with 4 patterns which were a Frog Prince with removable crown, Flower Garden, King or Queen of Hearts and Fairy princess with cut out stars just image all the possibilities. The Critter Cutters set includes Elouise & Tootie the Elephants, Dash the Dog, Bruce or Bell Butterfly and Martin & Theresa the dolphins also very cute. Lunch Punch is thicker than a cookie cutter so it is easier to go through two slices of bread but note softer bread works easier to cut then other breads. This is designed to capture most of the bread without waste but a tip if you wanted you could keep any leftovers for meatloaf, bread crumbs, bread pudding or any recipe requiring bread. This was invented by a mom to make lunch more fun for all. You can learn more about Lunch punch by visiting http://www.thelunchpunch.com/ you can purchase them online Amazon.com or select retailers scattered throughout the USA which are very few or worldwide just click the store locator on the web page. This is perfect for school lunches and everyday use to get your child to eat.

Wall Pops Review


I received in the mail as part of a product review Wall Pops and what I got was a monkey chandelier and a dry erase paper with a dry erase marker. You may be wonder what is Wall Pops? They are a company who makes a variety of wall decals, stickers and or dry erase products. The monkey chandelier I got was cute and can be used in a baby’s nursery or a toddler’s room. The dry erase paper I got had a flower boarder and can be stuck right on the wall I myself may mount it to a piece of wood or a hard surface so I can take it wherever I go instead of sticking it right to the wall. I find this product is a great alternative to maybe buying art and placing it on your wall and think of the money you could save especially if is just for a child’s room as when they grow their likes and dislikes will change. Besides what I got in the mail they have mirror art, glow in the dark, Fisher Price, wall clock stickers and so much more. Just think of all the endless possibilities learn more by visiting www.wallpops.com and see all the wonderful wall art.
The prices are very reasonable for their product and what you get. Which would be your favorite? I think the window décor’s would be neat to make it look like a different design. Make sure to like them on Facebook as they are giving away a $50.00 Wednesday giveaway and try your luck at winning, you never know you will win if you do not try. Below are all the links you need.

Mountain House Food Rations


I received in the mail as part of a product review Mountain House Food Rations. The flavors I got were 2 Lasagna, 1 Breakfast Skillet which is scrambled eggs with bacon and Beef Stew. Are you preparing for a disastrous event? Do you go camping and carry these in your backpack because they are easier to carry? Well, I would try Mountain House they offer a variety of food rations. They have entrees, desserts, vegetables, snacks, emergency kits and so much more. The pouches of food ration lasts seven years which is a very long time and well worth the price of the pouches. I compared Mountain House to Wise and here are my findings:
Taste: Both tasted great
Contents: A lot of Calories, Carbs and Sodium but that can’t be changed.
Appearance: Both looked good but Wise had more cheese.

I found Mountain House to have great flavor and price. Here is also some information about freeze dried food I did a lot of reading and found to be helpful. Freeze drying is a relatively recent method of preserving food. It involves freezing the food, then removing almost all the moisture in a vacuum chamber, and finally sealing the food in an airtight container. Freeze dried foods can be easily transported at normal temperatures, stored for a long period of time, and consumed with a minimum of preparation. Once prepared, the freeze-dried foods have much the same look and taste as the original, natural products.
The freeze-drying process was developed during World War II as a method of preserving blood plasma for battlefield emergencies without requiring refrigeration or damaging the organic nature of the plasma. The technology was applied to consumer food products after the end of the war. Coffee was one of the first freeze-dried products to be marketed on a large scale. Today, many fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, and food flavorings are freeze-dried. Freeze-dried food has many advantages. Because as much as 98% of the water content has been removed, the food is extremely lightweight; this significantly reduces the cost of shipping. This also makes it popular with boaters and hikers who have to carry their food with them. Because it requires no refrigeration, shipping and storage costs are even further reduced. Freeze-dried food is also relatively contamination-free since the dehydration process makes it virtually impossible for yeast and potentially harmful bacteria to survive. Finally, since the physical structure of the food is not altered during the freeze-drying process, the food retains much of its color, shape, texture, and flavor when it is prepared for consumption by reintroducing water. This makes it more attractive to consumers than food preserved by some other methods. One of the major disadvantages of freeze-dried food is its cost. The equipment required for this process requires a large investment of money, and the process itself is time consuming and labor intensive. These costs are usually passed on to the consumer, which makes freeze-dried food very expensive when compared to other methods of food preservation such as canning or freezing.

Nuvia Cafe


I received in the mail as part of a product review Nuvia Café which is an instant healthy coffee. You are probably wondering what makes this so healthy and the answer is it is make with Ganoderma which is an immune enhancer, African Mango which is a healthy appetite suppressant and Pomegranate which is a super antioxidant . The coffee is 100% Sumatran which is Sumatran coffee beans are some of the heaviest, smoothest, and most complex coffees in the world. Most of the coffees from Sumatra are dry-processed, but some are semi-washed. The majority of Sumatran coffee is marked Mandheling or Lintong and is grown inland from the southern coast. Sumatra coffee grown farther west is usually marked Gayo Mountain. Sumatra Gayo coffee is described as sweet and clean. Coffee connoisseurs who want to buy Sumatran coffee typically look for aged Sumatran green coffee beans. These coffee beans enhance the earthy and spicy notes of regular Sumatran coffee, making it one of the most sought after coffees available. What I got were the individual packets of 30 that are convent to take to work, travel with you on vacation or wherever you drink your coffee. It is so small and light it fits in any purse or bag. I need something like this as I have no energy and need to maintain my weight. So I tried this coffee and here is what I thought. I loved the smell, the taste is good and it did help curb my appetite which is good. So if you are a coffee drinker try Nuvia Café today and visit their website at www.nuviacafe.com

McDonald's and Newman's Organic Coffee Webcast Review


I just watched the live stream for Newman’s Own Organic coffee and McDonald’s I have learned so much. First it being exclusive blend for New England but also the coffee made from Arabic Beans which is a combination of two kinds of coffee beans and where they come from. I love how that Newman’s Organic gives a proceed of the sales to the Newman’s Foundation. The coffee at McDonald’s keeps a consistent taste and the ideal water temperature is 200 degrees. Wow! That is hot ! Make sure when you get your coffee you pair with a McDonald’s snack like scones or Danish. Free Coffee all week until Saturday September 29th stop by your local McDonald’s today Maine to Florida and pick one up; today to start your morning off right! More that I learned from the live stream is the coffee is Double Certified meaning Organic and Fair Trade which is a win- win situation for all . Nellie Newman also grew up in New England that was nice to know and why they partnered with Green Mountain is they had the same philosophy and philanthropy as them. I never knew this. Lastly why McDonalds choose Newman’s Own Organics is they felt they needed a company that had a great tasting coffee as it is important to the consumer .

Ozeri Green Earth 12" Ceremic Frying Pan



I received in the mail as part of a product review Ozeri’s 12” Ceramic frying pan the color is green and it is earth friendly, PTFE and PFOA Free.
Do you know what PTFE is? I will tell you it isPTFE is a fluorocarbon solid, as it is a high-molecular-weight compound consisting wholly of carbon and fluorine. PTFE is hydrophobic: neither water nor water-containing substances wet PTFE, as fluorocarbons demonstrate mitigated London dispersion forces due to the high electronegativity of fluorine. PTFE has one of the lowest coefficients of friction against any solid. PTFE is used as a non-stick coating for pans and other cookware. It is very non-reactive, partly because of the strength of carbon–fluorine bonds, and so it is often used in containers and pipe work for reactive and corrosive chemicals. Where used as a lubricant, PTFE reduces friction, wear, and energy consumption of machinery. It is commonly believed that Teflon, like velcro, is a spin-off product from the NASA space projects. However, that is not so, even though both products have been used by NASA . Is it safe? Here is my findings, In January 2005, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released a draft risk assessment on the health effects of PFOA. The EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics formed a Science Advisory Board to review the draft's findings. According to the review letter, three-fourths of the panel found that PFOA fit the EPA's guidelines for a "likely to be carcinogenic" substance. [source: Cory-Slechta and Morgan]. But while the EPA is continuing to study PFOA's effects on humans and the environment and has a program to eliminate PFOA and related chemical emissions and products by 2015, its current stand is that there is no reason for consumers to stop using PTFE-based nonstick cookware [source: United States Environmental Protection Agency]. The final product is PTFE -- not PFOA. Even though the CPSC and the EPA haven't determined a need for warning labels on nonstick cookware or pulled it from the market, it's still a good idea to follow a few guidelines in the kitchen. First, as DuPont -- maker Teflon, one of the best known nonstick cookware brands -- points out on its Web site, birds have delicate respiratory systems that can be affected by any fumes, not just those from nonstick cookware. For this reason, it's a good idea to keep birds out of the kitchen. Second, don't heat PFTE-coated pans beyond 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius) or leave them unattended [source: DuPont]. It's also a good idea to replace your pans if their coatings are visibly deteriorating. This makes me rethink pans I use and how they are made and what to buy in the store next time I go shopping.
 

It is very large as well perfect for cooking any meals like pancakes, eggs, chicken, stir fry’s and so much more. I was amazed at how large it was and I love to cook so this is perfect for me. Ozeri also sells kitchen products, bathroom, fitness, luxury and so much more I was intrigued by the fan and tumblers as they are a neat design and as the website says a modern design I had never seen before. Check out their website at www.ozeri.com . About the company is they have products especially designed for the digital life style and most of their products are available at vacation residents but now are starting to expand to other consumers. You can purchase their products at www.amazon.com the products are very inexpensive.

Basq Skincare Rebalancing Facial Cleanser


I recently received in the mail for product review Basq Skincare Rebalancing Facial Cleanser. I used this product for one month so I could let you know how it worked. Customers can't say enough about how this revolutionary face treatment transforms skin. Exfoliate away damaged skin and prevent plugged and prominent pores so you have a smoother finish. The astringent properties of plant extracts Oak Root and Ylang Ylang penetrate deeply to bannish blemishes, clarify and tone face. Also works on dark spots (melasma from pregnancy, sun, aging spots) and lessens the appearance of fine lines. Rich in rebalancing moisturizing emollients so skin is left truly soft, supple and replenished - never dry or too tight. It is ideal for combination, sensitive, aging, hormonal or pregnant skin. When I used it for the first time I put it on my neck as I have a dark area from being sunburnt there and after the first use it was light in color so then I started using it on my face and I feel it has helped with reducing blemishes and toning my skin. I love this product as I am not getting any younger and my skin recently has been looking older darn it all. This product won 2010 IParenting Product of the year which is a great accomplishment. Besides what I received they have Cucumber eye tea, Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy and so many more products. Visit http://basqnyc.com to see all their wonderful products!

Beardhead



I received in the mail as part of a product review Beardhead. Beardhead is a company that makes hats with beards attached. The one I got was a Viking hat with a beard. I think this would be great for Halloween, when it is very cold outside and you need your face protected from the bitter cold. A few of the beards they have are Viking, Santa, and Ginger. They have combos of beard and hat, moustaches, t shirts and stickers. I think this is a nice idea and very funny to see. My husband put it on and he loves it and thinks it is so cool and I laughed at him. Can you image wearing this to the ski slope? I can and it is cool they should have a day of it and see how many “dress up” and show up. They are each knitted and the prices are very reasonable. Check out their website today at www.beardhead.com and pick your favorite. Here is information about the company Beard Head knit beard caps combine the comfort and warmth of a traditional knit cap with the amazing styling of having a massive beard and moustache growing on your face!

Daily's Cocktails Review & Giveaway

I recently was giving the opportunity to Review Daily’s Cocktails. I went to my local Wal-Mart and they offered a few different varieties. I got 2 Strawberry Daiquiri’s, 1 Peach and 1 Lemonade pouch. They are only $1.88 each! That is a great price. So I had never heard of Daily’s until recently I was flipping through a magazine and there it was. These come in pouches which you put in the freezer and enjoy.
Here is my drink:

My Reaction to Daily’s Cocktails:What a yummy flavor. I love this Strawberry Daiquiri but i better have just one i have work in the morning.  
Image you sitting on the beach the breeze blowing through your hair and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore what a perfect day and to top it off you have a cup of Daily’s Cocktail in your hand. Oh the feeling of relaxing on the beach and the warmth from the sun. what an image I have in my head! To hang onto summer just a bit longer you need to have a cook out with all your friends and have some cocktails on hand to quench your thirst and theirs or you can just go to the beach and enjoy as well which every your heart desires How do you Savor Summer? What is your favorite memory about summer? Let me know by leaving a blog comment. You do not have to just enjoy Daily’s Cocktails in the summer but all year round look out for two new flavors coming this Fall Hard Cider and Spiced Sangria. Great for your Halloween party or any other get together you may have or maybe you just need to unwind after working hard all day. Make sure you check out their website at www.dailyscocktails.com .

How cool is that! An All American Cocktail; for July 4th or Election Day coming up in November. I was thinking for Halloween you could do a Hard Cider and call it a Witch’s Brew or maybe a Strawberry Daiquiri and call it Fresh Blood those are my ideas.

Thymes Brained Pumpkin and Chestnut Candle


I received in the mail as part of a product review Thymes Brained Pumpkin and Chestnut Candle from the Wildwood Collection. The reason I picked this candle is that fall is around the corner and it is my husband’s favorite season and I love all of the fall scents as well.

My husband also loves the scent. Besides candles Thymes has Bath & Body products, Home products and you can shop by collection as well. Here is a complete description of the candle Subtle yet sumptuous; this richly scented candle kindles the warmth of brandied pumpkin, comforting spices, honeyed amber and ancient woods.

Glade Expressions



I received as part of a Bzz Agent Campaign Glade Expressions Starter Kit for Fragrance Mist and Oil Diffuser. I had a hard time finding these in my state I went to Wal-Mart where they were sold out and Walgreens which offers only one choice. The scent it comes in is Pineapple and Mangosteen, Lavender and Juniper Berry, Cotton and Italian Mandarin; New Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice. I bought the oil diffuser Lavender and Juniper Berry I put this in the living room to make it smell better instead of stale and the scent is very strong and lasts. I got the Pineapple and Mangosteen Fragrance mist which helps cover odors and lasts for a short amount of time, I love the scent of it makes me feel tropical. It took me a few minutes to realize home to spray it. You can learn more by visiting http://www.glade.com/en-us/Collections/expressionsCollection/pages/default.aspx?sid=SEM_Google&sid=SEM_G_223.kw8034 . Which scent would you like to try?


Thomas Bagels



I do not know about you but I love to have a bagel with cream cheese at least a few times a week if I can. I recently received coupons in the mail to try Thomas Bagels which I have tried them before and ended up purchasing the Cinnamon Raisin Bagels. I love the smell of cinnamon and this time of the especially with fall in the air. I make a bagel sandwich which had eggs, turkey bacon and cheese it was so yummy!  You should try it I also spread strawberry cream cheese on one as well and this was just as tasty. The last thing I tried was with Honey Butter that was also yummy! It you have never tried Thomas Bagels give them a try. They also have English muffins if you prefer them and if you are worried about to many carbs they have bagel thins you can try. Visit http://thomasbreads.com/ and see what they have to offer and also look in the bread aisle at your local supermarket.  I can’t wait to try the Pumpkin Spice Bagel which is just a seasonal one, I hope they sell it in my area I will be on the lookout next time I go to the supermarket.
Which is your favorite bagel and topping do you like?

Turkey Hill


I recently went to my local supermarket with coupons in hand from Turkey Hill (Thank-You) and I purchased their Banana Split ice cream which has chocolate ice with walnuts, banana ice cream with a fudge swirl and strawberry ice cream. I really loved it, I have never tried it before but it was very yummy. I am not a big fan of chocolate ice cream so I left that for my husband. They have so many flavors and variety of ice cream but here are a few Peanut Butter Ripple, Neapolitan and Black Raspberry. Besides ice cream I got the Lemonade with Lemon flavor, I have had the half tea and half lemonade before and enjoyed it and I really liked this as well it was just the right sweetness for me which is great. Check out their website today at http://www.turkeyhill.com/ and see what you would like to find. I did have a hard time finding their products in my area and very few of a variety to choose from maybe your state have more of a variety.

When Hope Blossoms By Kim Vogel Sawyer

I received in the mail as part of review from Bethany Publishing Where Hope Blossoms by Kim Vogel Sawyer It follows a widower named Amy and her 3 children. She moves to a small town of Weaverly, Kansas from Ohio and starts over. She has a neighbor named Tim Roper who left the Mennonite life and lost him wife and son. I hate to give away too much of the book so I will not say much more except it is a must read and just came out. I loved the book and it is a feel good book and I wish that people would treat each one like in this book with care and respect. Here is a little excerpt from her website http://www.kimvogelsawyer.com Amy Knackstedt moves with her children to Weaverly, Kansas, to escape the speculation surrounding her husband's untimely death. She hopes the new location will provide a fresh start for them all. But her neighbor, Tim Roper, is not pleased to have a Mennonite family living next to his apple orchard. When the children try to befriend him, he resists. Tim left the Mennonite faith years ago and doesn't want any reminders of his former life. Yet Amy and Tim find their paths colliding far more than either could have foreseen. Will this tentative relationship blossom into something more?

I have a great product for you it is called Dentisse it is premium oral care products. I received the Natural Reflections toothpaste in the mail as part of a product review and within two weeks of using the products you should have whiter teeth, less plaque, less tartar build up, fresher breathe, smoother teeth, radiant smile. I have now used it for four days now and have already noticed a slight difference I have no plaque build-up, fresher breath and my teeth are whiter just in that short amount of time I was amazed at the difference so far. They also offer Natural Solutions Oral Rinse which is alcohol free ad works as an oral rinse should.

Enjoy Hair Care Review & Giveaway


Have you heard of a new sulfate free shampoo? Well it is called Enjoy. I like how it comes in a white, pink and black bottle. The scent is very pleasant and it works really well with my hair. I noticed it is wavy and does not weight down my hair. What I dislike about the product is it being so thick I have a hard time getting it out of the bottles but other than that this is a great product. You can visit their website at http://www.enjoyhaircare.com/all-products and see all the products they have to offer. They also have you put in your hair information to find out which products are great for your hair type.
What’s the big deal with having pH balanced and stable products?
ENJOY knows that pH balanced and stable products are key for optimum hair color retention. Human skin and hair resides in the pH 4.5-5.5 range, but most products on the market are pH 7 or greater. In addition to leaving the hair feeling dry and brittle, the higher pH in these products raises the cuticle and causes hair color to fade shampoo after shampoo. This isn’t the case with ENJOY. To provide long lasting color and complement hair’s natural pH balance, they work hard to insure that their products are pH 4.5-6.0. They also conduct extensive bake tests on the line to guarantee pH stability.
PPPPP
ENJOY Professional Hair Care proudly offers a full range of sulfate-free and pH balanced products. With a full color line of skin and hair care, as well as hair color products, ENJOY is sure to have something for everyone.
ENJOY is a registered trademark of Ultimate Salon Professionals, Inc (USP, Inc) of Oceanside, California.
