Waves and Ponytails if you ever wanted an partial updo or ponytail try a triple topsytail or tuck fresh flowers into the princess fishtail braid or the four into one for a summery look.

Air Angel On The Go Summer Travel Air Sanifiers



I recently got to review Air Angel which is a small mobile Air Sanifiers with revolutionary, energy efficient technology that fights germs by cleaning and sanitizing the air in rooms up to 250 square feet, including nurseries, bedrooms, pet rooms, playrooms, hotel rooms, cars, planes, and more. Air Oasis has created the Air Angel just for families with children and/or pets to protect rooms from germs, viruses, aero-allergens, and harmful pollutants in the air and on surfaces.The Air Angel has 4 technologies in 1 and they are germicidal UVC Light, Ion Generator, AHPCO Technology and Washable Stainless Steel Dust Cover.


My Opinion: I did an air quality test with the Petri dish for 4-5 days you start for the first hour uncovered then after that you cover it with the lid, tape it and label the date started and it shows the air quality I have in my home. The results of the test made me say “Eww...gross, I had no idea how toxic my air really is” .Then I used the Air Angel and have been for a few weeks now and I have notice a difference in the air quality and those people who are asthmatic this could make a difference in your home. It is small; portable can be used in the car and taken anywhere.

My 5 Day Results

About Air Oasis: Air Sanifiers are carefully assembled by hand in the company’s Amarillo, Texas, factory. Each and every unit passes through a strict quality management system, where it is thoroughly inspected. This process ensures every customer receives the most reliable air purification products available.

Sephra Gourmet Crepe and Belgian Waffle Mix Review & Giveaway


Sephra makes quality products for commercial or home use and was recently sent a couple products to try at home and since I feel breakfast is the most important meal of the day I got to review Belgian Waffle Mix- 5 lb bag which I stored in an air tight container to make as little or as much as I want. You can add so many things to waffle mix including chocolate chips, strawberries, blueberries and more. 


This mix is made with enriched wheat flour, vegetable soya oil, sugar, dried whole eggs, soy flour, powdered malt, corn flour, baking powder, dextrose, salt, N&A flavors.


I also got Sephra Gourmet Crepe Mix- 5 lb bag which I again stored in an air tight container. Again you make following the directions as much or as little as you would like 1 cup of mix to 1 cup of water. I have used the most so far making blueberry and cream cheese crapes but I also know you can make spinach and egg filled, strawberry and cream cheese, veggies and more. The mix is made with enriched wheat flour, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil (canola or soy), shortening, dried whole eggs, sugar, buttermilk powder, salt, baking powder, N&A flavors.


My Opinion: I really love how easy it is to use and making crepes are easier than I thought they would be and the mix tastes so good. The price is also affordable to make at home or if you have a crepe stand or own a restaurant these are perfect. The Belgian waffle mix is also tasty and easy to make.

Personalogy


If you are shy like me and go to a party you just look around not sure how to start a conversation and are very uncomfortable. There is a new game out called Personalogy that is the size of a playing card and fits perfectly in your pocket. The object of the game is to predict your opponent’s answer .The person with the most points win. I was sent a handful of cards from Family Game which is for ages 7+ and offers hours of laugh out loud fun for the entire family, makes having dinner around the table a fun experience, no more long boring car rides and adds entertainment to your vacation with 125 amusing questions and surprising answers.  Personalogy the Original Party Edition which is for ages 16 and up and you ask a variety of questions for your next get together party or otherwise to break the ice.


Some of the questions are which city below reflects my social life and why, which of the following songs would you sing at a karaoke bar and why and which ice cream best reflects how I feel right now and why.


My Opinion: This is so much fun learning about your family members and also co-workers as when I am bored I can ask these questions and see what they say because let’s face it we are all curious about other people. The cost of this game is also comparable to other like games to learn more visit http://personalogygame.com .

Music Mondays Sugarland Something More

This song here gives me inspiration to make changes in my life and in the past it has meant moving from one state to another. Rather it changes jobs and location but i am getting older and can't keep moving every 3-5 years.

Tommee Tippee

As your child changes age stages in life you want table ware to change with them and with Tommee Tippee they offer just that. I recently got to review the Explora 2 section plates for ages 12m+ and comes in a package of two and is perfect for family mealtimes: the 3 sections mean you can introduce your toddler to new tastes without them all merging into one. And because they fit with our Easi-Mat, there’s less mess too.
Explora easi-mat for ages 7m+ that comes in a package of one and holds plates and bowls firmly in place using a suction device in the middle of the mat that prevents your little one from moving, throwing or even tipping them up, making mealtimes a lot less messy.

Explora easy scoop feeding bowl with lids for ages 7m+ and comes in a package of two with a leak-proof lid and an easy-grip spoon. They are a must-buy for easy feeding on the go. The easy-scoop triangular base helps with self-feeding and they fit with our Easi-Mat too, meaning less mess and less stress for you.
Explora easi-roll bibs for ages 7m+ and comes in a package of two that are innovative and convenient, with a crumb catcher to collect mess and a dimpled reverse to encourage air flow and prevent irritation on delicate skin. They also roll up easily for storage and travel.
Explora feeding spoons for ages 7m+ and comes in a package of five in the colors of blue, two purple, green, and orange. These are designed with a big chunky handle for an easy grip, and a wide spoon base to scoop up and hold food in place, perfect for helping your baby feed themselves and enjoy a fuller feed.

My Opinion: These are really great items for this stages of a child’s life to get accustom to eating on their own and being independent .The spoons are excellent as they are easier for them to grip and hold. The bibs do fold up very small to fit nicely in the diaper bag. I like the easi- mat too as they can’t throw the food on the floor it keeps the plate and bowls in place.
