Fran Wilson


Recently I had the opportunity to review a variety of products by Fran Wilson what I got were:

MOODmatcher Lipstick: I got a six personalized colors of lipstick which changes color when applied to your lip from pink to green, peach to light blue, pink to orange and so on. Pick a shade you like as it lasts up to twelve hours  I made the mistake of putting a shade of pink on and when it changed colors I hated how it looked and could not take it off. This lipstick is enriched with natural moisturizers using Aloe Vera and Vitamins E. This is also again Kiss Proof, smudge proof, non-transferable and non-drying. This is great as you can go from work to play and can lift your mood as it reacts to your lips PH to create a one of a kind shade. I like this idea because it reminds me of the mood ring idea where you wore it and it matched what mood you were in.
Retinol Anti-Aging Towelettes: These are made to gently cleanse, tone, take off make up and remove impurities within the pores; Made with Aloe, Ginseng, Green Tea, Vitamin E and Retinol to nourish your skin.
Retinol Starter Kit: Has three products or our skincare which introduces consumers to our anti- aging skincare regimen.
Nourish My Eyes Cucumber Pads: These pads contain natural extracts plus Green Tea to fight free radicals and mulberry to decrease puffiness and lighten under-eye circles.
Results: I love how I felt like I was at the spa with these on and I just relaxed and let all the stress melt away and when I was done with the application of the pads my eyes were less puffy.
Cool Mint Kiss Me Lipgloss: This is infused with peppermint oil which will help you have fresher breathe and the taste on your lips will be yummy as well. When applied your lips will tingle and will help nourish dry, cracked lips.
Younger Lips: is hydrating formula that stimulates the production of collagen to enhance and define your lips. Your lips will feel fuller and plumper. Make sure to visit www.franwilson.com and see all the products they have to offer.
It was hard to pick a favorite product from Fran Wilson so i will just say i love them all.

Bear Creek Candle Company


I received in the mail as part of a product review a Winter Spice scented pillar candle from Bear Creek Candle Company. The scent is wonderful and reminds me of this time of year Fall and Winter. If you love candles you will love this company! The candles are made with natural beeswax and honey. I know I love to burn candles as they are relaxing and the scent fills the room and it just feels homey. They are also great for burning around the holidays or for get together just remember to watch the candle so you do not cause any fires. Bear Creek offers a variety of candles from tapes to pillars. I also did not know that there was a way to burn candles and this information I will share as I never knew this and maybe you have not also. Keep your candles out of a draft. If the flame is flickering then your candle is in a draft and it will burn unevenly and/or drip. Keep your wicks trimmed! Trim your wick each time you relight your candle. Use a wick trimmer or pinch the sooty end off before lighting. How long wicks should be trimmed? 1/4" is a good starting point. The candle wick in a candle is constantly feeding fuel (the wax) to the flame and a pool of wax is created around it due to the heat. The size of this wax pool can vary due to wick size, ambient air temperature and humidity, thickness of candle, how long it has been burning and other variables. Observation and common sense are your best guides. Candles need oxygen to burn properly. If the wick is too long or contaminated it will impede the flow of oxygen and cause your candle to smoke and burn poorly. Do not allow wick debris to collect in the wax pool. Beeswax pillar candles benefit from a bit of love and attention. For best burning results, burn pillar candles until liquid pool of wax reaches 1/4 inch from edge of candle. Keep wick in center of candle. To prevent pillar candles from boring a hole down the center, burn candles for at least one hour for each inch in diameter (i.e., burn a 3 inch diameter candle for at least 3 hours). Keep an eye on your candle! If the wax threatens to melt through the side, extinguish the candle and let it harden before relighting. The best way to extinguish a pillar candle or votive is by tipping the wick into the wax pool using a wick dipper or other non-flammable object, then straightening the wick to let it cool. This primes the wick for the next burning and eliminates smoking. For taper candles it is best to use a candle snuffer. Never leave a burning candle unattended! Burn candles in proper holders and on a heat-resistant surface. Do not move or touch while hot or while wax is liquid. Trim wick to 1/4 inch before burning. Protect from drafts. Keep out of reach of children. Open flame - use caution and at your own risk. I got this from their website which is http://www.bearcreekcandlecompany.com/ . They are nestled in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Evergreen, CO near Bear Creek.

Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops


I received in the mail as part of a product review from Tomoson . Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops. They come in Cherry or Honey and also by the bag or Puck. The Bag has 32 drops and The Puck has 26 drops. I tried the honey and I love honey I opened the bag and you could smell the Carnauba wax they are made with. They are softish but it says do not bite them just suck on them until they are gone. I have a hard time doing that as with your mind and eating gummy type products biting it is the first thing you want to do. They are different in taste for me as well and last a very long time. You can find these at your local store or go to http://pinebrothers.com/ and see all their products along with nutritional information. I also find the history of this company amazing as it has been around so very long so I have included this with my review.
Ulysses S. Grant was President, the population of America hovered at 39 million, and the telephone was still a pipe dream, when in 1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and, along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called 'Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets.' In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born. "I have discovered something," Pine wrote, "which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was." He added, "Perhaps I won't make much money out of this. But I can make people happy, and that's more important than money." Mr. Pine was being unduly modest, as his "discovery" would become one of the most successful, most delicious and most unique throat lozenges in the world. Nor has the recipe changed appreciably since it was first introduced to the public over 140 years ago. In 1930 Pine Brothers was sold to the Life Savers Company and continued to flourish. Known for its 'soft drop consistency,' Pine Brothers lozenges became a favorite of adults and children alike. The product, which attracted healthiest sales in the eastern and northern states, due to its icy winters, reached its peak popularity in the 1970's. The company was sold by Life Savers, and then, having been re-sold and acquired a number of times, found itself essentially rudderless and underappreciated; this despite a legion of loyal consumers. Cost cutting changes were made to the original recipes, packaging became stale and marketing non-existent; Pine Brothers began to be made overseas. Sales declined. Recently, Pine Brothers was acquired by the creator and former owner of Airborne, Victoria Knight-McDowell, for her new company 3 Sisters Home Products™. Much time and effort has been spent locating the original Pine Brothers recipes, redesigning the packaging, and creating an exciting yet classic new look. The natural product is once again being made in America, and was launched nationally in fall 2011. And indeed, old Mr. Pine has succeeded yet again in "making people happy." God bless him!
Try them and see for yourself how much you like them.

Every Drop


Do you hate throwing beauty products away before the container is empty but you just can’t get it to come out? Are you tired of wasting money? I have a great product for you I recently got to review Every Drop Beauty Spatula. This can be used on any beauty product from nail polish, eyeliner, lotions, liquids, creams.

We all know how expensive make up can be and beauty products in general this is such a live saver. Every Drop Beauty Spatula is also washable and reusable.

Blu Apple Review and Giveaway


 I received in the mail as part of a product review Blu Apple. If you have never heard of Blu Apple it helps keep your fruit and vegetables fresher longer. Did you know American spend over $1 Billion dollar a year to dispose of excess food? That just amazes me but I should not be surprised as when you buy fruit or vegetables they rot before you can eat them unless to eat them right away. I admit I waste a lot of food each year and I get disgusted at times and realize I need to find a better way to not waste so much as there are people out there that are starving and would do anything to just be able to eat. How does Blu Apple Work? Well, I will tell you Ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. However, once concentrated in your refrigerator or other storage areas, the presence of ethylene gas continues to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage. The Blu Apple is designed to provide effective ethylene gas absorption for three months in a typical home refrigerator produce bin or storage container. The active ingredient does not "wear out", but continues to absorb ethylene until it has reached its capacity. A One Year Refill Kit rounds out the Blu Apple ethylene gas management product line, allowing consumers to reuse Blu Apples and not add them to landfills. The Blu Apple can extend storage of product up to three times longer but remember ideal storage conditions can also impact the process and can significantly impact taste.  To learn more visit www.thebluapple.com

Magnablities Review & Giveaway


I have a great product for the upcoming holiday season it is called Magnabilities. You may have seen these before it is a necklace with interchangeable pictures and patterns. I have been admiring them for a while and recently had the opportunity to review one for my blog as part of a product review. The necklace I got came on a cloth cord which I went out and got a leather cord as it seems when I age my neck gets larger so I needed a chain they would be long enough. I also got 4 inserts in Fall/Winter patterns. I love it so much and plan on buying more inserts to go with it. I like how you have one necklace and endless insert possibilities you can also design your own insert what a neat option. This gift is for the person who has everything and you are looking for something unique also for your teenager as they have tween options colors or you can go with any color.

Whispers in the wind By Lauraine Snelling



I received in the mail as part of a product review from Bethany House Whispers in the Wind by Lauraine Snelling. This is about a girl named Cassie Lockwood who was a gun sling in North Dakota with her parents but after they die she finds a deed to land in South Dakota where she goes to with her companions this is where her dad dreamed of building a home but never did it. The land is also owned by Mavis Engstrom she had two sons and one daughter. Mavis Engstrom meets with Cassie and confirms the deed and information is correct and invites her to move to the Bar E Ranch with her companions and animals. Mavis’s son Ransom is suspicious and her son Lucas is smitten by Cassie. I love this story as it takes place during simpler times when there was gold to be found and cowboys and Indians. Cassie has a lot to learn about herself and her new found friends.  I would read this book this is the second book in the Wild West Wind Series. Can be purchased at http://www.christianbook.com/whispers-in-the-wind-wild-west/lauraine-snelling/9780764204166/pd/204166?product_redirect=1&Ntt=204166&item_code=&Ntk=keywords&event=ESRCP

Snomee


Are you stuck this person very well and I want to get the perfect gift but have no idea what that is? Or stuck on what to get that special someone for Christmas? I have a great idea for you it is called Snomee. It is a snow globe that is also a gift card holder. A gift card would be an awesome idea then they can buy what they want or maybe go there favorite restaurant of coffee shop. Then they also have this neat snow globe keepsake that can be used for years to come. Maybe you know someone who collects snow globes you could give them one of these as well. The prices are also very reasonable. They have so many to choose from I got the Multi-Meadia Snomee for product reviews purposes and it is so great and unique. Besides what I got they have dining out, reading, fashion and so many more to choose from. Visit www.snomee.com and check out all their Snomees. About Snomee: So who exactly is “Snomee”? Well the short answer is that Snomee is the brainchild of two people, sales and marketing director Michael O’Sullivan and creative chief Simon Roberts. However to really understand who Snomee is you’ve got to understand why we came together what it is we’re trying to achieve. Both Michael and Simon share a passion for those precious gift-giving moments. We’ve all been there, that perfect moment when you give a gift to someone you care about- that moment of puzzlement as they try to guess from the shape of the package what’s inside, the excitement as they tear off the paper and finally that look of glee and surprise as they discover what they’ve received. There’s nothing in the world quite like seeing someone you love open and appreciate a gift that you picked out for them.

Fryeburg Fair 2012


If you live in New England you have heard of Maine’s Largest Fair which is the Fryeburg Fair. It is held for one week starting the Last Sunday in September going thru the following Sunday. I have been going to this fair ever since I was a kid so it is a family tradition and I plan on continuing this tradition with my own family. Each year it gets bigger and more expensive every year but well worth it in my opinion. I usually go on Saturday which is the day of the parade but not this year I went on a Friday and it was so bright and sunny temperature in the 70’s a perfect day. Each day they have a few different themes like Monday is Woodsman’s Day, Tuesday is Senior Citizen’s Day. Each night they have a concert. Thursday I caught a little of Jo Dee Mesina as I went up at 8:00 and had free parking and got in the gate free. The fair is open 7:00 A.M. -11:00 P.M. They showcase a variety of exhibit halls where you can set up a booth to sell your product. New this year was a building just for homemade local products I tried Eli’s Strawberry Soda which was good and I saw moxie Jelly which I bet is not that good. Moxie is a Maine soda that has been around for a very long time. They have rides and carnival games. You must stop by Loretta’s Kitchen to sample some of her homemade biscuits or rice pudding made the old fashion way on a wood stove. I have had both they are good although rice pudding takes an acquired taste to like.
Visit the website at www.fryeburgfair.com or follow them on Facebook at: and learn all about this and if you live in New England next year you should attend it is such a great family event.

The filter will let you know when it is ready to be changed as it has what is called a “Mavea Meter” which starts at 100% ,75% and so on til you need to replace it. The filter is also recyclable and BPA Free. Did you also know the filter is made with Maxtra Technology? Which means It improves the taste of water hot or cold, softens water to make appliances last longer and perform better, does not remove fluoride. I do not know how many water filter pitchers you have tried in your life but I have got to say this is the easiest I have ever tried and would recommend this to anyone. Visit http://www.mavea.com and see all the pitchers they have to offer as they have three other ones. You can purchase this at Amazon, Whole Foods and so many more locations by clicking http://www.mavea.com/mavea/e-shops.html?&L=0 which will list them all for you.

Sankotu Knife By Cooking Pleasure

I have a great knife that I received in the mail as part of a product review called Sankotu knife By Cooking Pleasures; it originated in Japan and used by the best cooks all over the world. It has a design of a meat cleaver with the versatility of a chef’s knife. Do you like to cook? Do you need a knife that is sharper then what you currently have? This knife would be perfect for you. My husband used this knife for the first time to cut up some filet minion’s as my local store had a great deal on a slab of it. It sliced thru the meat so easy and with such ease. Here are some details about the knife:  Ergonomic design, 7” long double-forged stainless steel blade also has a dimple on the blade to prevent food from sticking.  Check out the website at http://www.fosinaoffers.com/z/6287/CD12430  and see all the details about the Sankotu Knife by Cooking Pleasures. The price is very reasonable for a quality knife.

Ozer Fresko Duo Salt and Pepper Grinder


 I have another great product from OZERI Fresko Duo Salt & pepper Grinder. When I first thought of salt and pepper grinders I was thinking it was going to be this huge grinder like you see at a fancy restaurant and to my surprise it was not and I was so happy it was smaller and compact as it would take up a lot of counter space. It is a salt and pepper grinder in one which they call a Duo Salt & Pepper Grinder. You can purchase it at the following link http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Fresko-Pepper-Grinder-Germany/dp/B007TAVFPS/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1350566907&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=fresko+dou+grinder This was made in Germany with the best quality stainless steel and the design is nice and the perfect size. This is an eco-friendly product and is a must for any kitchen and has an elegant design. Great for entertaining guests or everyday use and if you are like me you need salt or pepper on your food. You can chose how you want it to grind coarse or fine whichever you prefer.

34 Degrees Review


I received in the mail as a product review 34 degrees, they make crisps. They are so yummy and as good for you as they are low in fat and carbs. I got the Caramel, Honey, Cinnamon and Chocolate. I though the Caramel tasted like a sugar cone and the rest are just as tasty but watch out you can’t eat just one. Besides what I got they make Natural Sesame, Cracked Pepper and Rosemary Whole Grain. I like the little designs each cracker has with a neat swirl design. I like how you could use to make s’mores with instead of the thicker graham cracker. This cracker keeps its crisp and will leave you wanting more. You can learn more by visiting http://www.34-degrees.com/ . Just wanted to let you know after you open them put them in Tupperware or a sandwich bag as they get soft. 


Here is information about the company and how they got started: People always want to know how we got the name 34 Degrees. The answer is Sydney, Australia. Thirty-four degrees is the latitude of Sydney—the city where our company Founder Craig Lieberman discovered his passion for food and wine while attending grad school there. It’s also where he got his first taste of Australian crispbread, the inspiration for our thin and crispy crackers. In 2003, Craig launched 34 Degrees and began importing specialty foods from Australia. But like many long-distance relationships, this arrangement had its share of challenges. Eventually, Craig’s desire to bring his business and his love of food closer to home illuminated the need to take the company in a new direction. In 2008, he discontinued his importing venture to become a manufacturer focused exclusively on making 34° Crisps in Boulder County, Colorado.
