Are you or someone you know in the market for a new flat iron? Has yours fizzled out? I have had several over the years and my biggest complaint is how long it takes to do my hair. I have fibromyalgia and it’s hard for me to hold my arms up for that long to section my hair, layer my hair and hold it for extended periods. I was beyond thrilled to try this flat iron and realize I didn’t have to do it in layers! It handled my thick hair in one full section! My son helped me get the back, but that’s ok too. Normally he’s all thumbs, but this time it was super easy for him!
The iron is a beautiful black matte color with red trim. It heats up to a max 450 degrees F. but you can set it lower, if you’d like, and lock in that temperature. It has a swivel cord which makes it easy when you are flipping it around or reaching in the back for those hard to reach places. The cord is also long! No need to stand right next to the plug, you can sit somewhere comfortable and still fix your hair!
I’m so pleased with this flat iron, I couldn’t wait to share it with you! You can purchase your own on Amazon, if you’d like. It also comes with a 2 year warranty!
I received this product free to review, all opinions are my own.
I’m always looking for cute ways to fix my hair and always struggle with it because my hair is long and thick AND I have a larger, plus sized head. It can be frustrating at times! Headbands don’t always fit right and hair clips don’t always hold my hair. It’s especially frustrating when I’m in the car, as my son’s older Mercedes doesn’t have a working air conditioner and we have those windows down and the sun roof open! That equates my long hair being blown ALL OVER!
I was thrilled to get to try these cute and fashionable headbands as I saw them as a great alternative for the car! Not only are they perfect for me but they work great for my 9 yr old daughter, as well! They are so versatile! they work as a thin headband, a wide headband or as a bandana style scarf. They have an elastic at the bottom so they are all one piece. You just slip it on and set the style for what you want, and go! I keep one in the car for car rides and with all these colors, there’s a way to coordinate almost every outfit!
They work great for working out, gardening, housework and also for when you want to look pretty, at work, going out, and of course, riding in the car with the windows or top down! You can’t go wrong with these! They are super cute!
I received this product free of charge, but all opinions are my own.
Are your kids like mine? Do they always want to borrow your tablet then turn around and ask to borrow your headphones? Do you cringe at the thought of their grubby hands on your electronics and their ear wax on your headphones? It’s inevitable, isn’t it?
I jumped at the chance to try Snug PlugNPlay Kids Headphones because my 9 year old is always wanting to use headphones (which is a blessing, you can only listen to One Direction so many times) but I don’t like getting them back with her gunk on them. Ew! She loved these headphones the moment I took them out of the box! First of all, they were pink! What is not to love when you are 9? The cord is plenty long enough for getting up and doing a little dancing to the music. That is great! Everything seemed fine.
Then she told me, the left side is making a weird noise? Um, what? Well, it sounds like cymbals in there when you move from side to side. That isn’t good! We looked to see if something was loose, nope, it’s something internal. They can’t be fixed. Two weeks after receiving them, they are done.
I emailed the company twice and no response. We are saddened. Thus, I can not recommend these headphones. I don’t know if it was a fluke because I don’t have another pair to compare to. I have poor communication, so I can’t say they are good with that. We are very disappointed.
If you are looking for headphones for your child, proceed with caution if you choose this brand.
I received these headphones free of charge for my honest review.

Do you want to make “fast cash”? Build wealth? Invest in real estate? Did you feel that you couldn’t because you don’t have good enough credit? How about cash on hand? Maybe you don’t have a real estate license? What would you think if I told you there is a book that shares insight on how to do the things I mentioned- earning cash quickly, and building wealth BY investing in real estate? You don’t need cash up front and you don’t need good credit to get started. You don’t even need a realtor license. How? Phil Pustejovsky put together an incredible book, describing his story and explaining how he did just this and he is helping others do the same.
Phil Pustejovsky is a best selling author, national speaker, accomplished investor and has been recognized as a leading coach and mentor in real estate.
There is a great chapter titled “Wny Be a Real Estate Investor?” This is a very insightful chapter and it guides you into asking yourself, why should YOU become a real estate investor.
Phil gives great suggestions on how to make fast cash in the chapter “How to Make Fast Cash”. He uses real world examples and his personal wisdom to provide scenarios to help you realize that this is really possible and not just a dream.
There is a fabulous section of recommended reading. These are some excellent books that Phil recommends to help you on your journey. I look forward to reading these books, myself.
In summary, this book is fabulous reading for those who want to invest in real estate but think they don’t have the ability or the means to do so. It gives you knowledge and encouragement. The real world scenarios are a wonderful touch as it shows how people really get it done.

I don’t know about you, but I often have so much on my mind at night, that I can’t sleep. I shut the light off, settle in and BAM! My brain is thinking of what I am going to cook for dinner the next day, if I remembered to look for a certain pair of pants the youngest wanted to wear the next day, if I remembered to pay a bill that was due that day, if I remembered to put the food away from dinner…you may think it’s a little OCD sounding, but it’s not. It’s just my chaotic household and while it is my norm, it affects my sleep on a regular basis. I need my brain to just shut off for a little while, so I can relax and go to sleep!
That’s where Restful Sleep comes in. Restful sleep is a natural sleep supplement that calms your mind. Unlike over the counter or prescription medications for sleep that leave you sluggish and drowsy the next morning, Restful Sleep helps you to wake up refreshed and NOT drowsy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine herbs and essential minerals in Restful Sleep help to:
– Calm and quiet a restless mind and body
– Promote a full night’s restful sleep
– Nourish chi to bring harmony and balance into the body
– Promote calm throughout the day
– Restore vitality to the spleen and heart organ systems
Not only do I have difficulty falling asleep, but every little sound wakes me up. I don’t feel rested, even after laying in bed for a full 8 hours. It’s because my mind is just going and going and going. Restful Sleep can help with this.
Dr. Yan Ping Xu, certified practitioner of Oriental medicine and board certified herbalist, developed safe, non-addictive, Restful Sleep natural sleep supplement to help restore balance to your spleen’s—and whole body—chi (energy) so you can have a full night of restorative sleep and wake up refreshed, never drowsy.
I bet you always thought that sleep had to do with your brain. Think again. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, sleep issues start with the spleen. In traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s believed when you have trouble sleeping, it’s your spleen’s chi that is off balance.
Here are just a few ways the spleen is central to your body—metabolism, digestion, even circulation—all of which can have an impact on your sleep.
Thus, when your spleen chi is out of balance, you can experience the things that I experience on a regular basis, things like worry, anxiety, fatigue ALL THE TIME, restlessness, and these all can cause you to not sleep well!
The good news is you CAN get your spleen’s—and your whole body’s—chi back in balance, and Restful Sleep can help.
For thousands of years, the Chinese have relied on herbal blends to help with sleep problems by rebalancing chi. This blend is called Yi-Fang. Restful Sleep’s formula uses the same EXACT Chinese herbs in Yi-Fang that have been used for over 2,000 years.
Also, in Restful Sleep, there are modern-day nutrients to help with the absorption of these herbs. This includes calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Restful Sleep provides a gentle sleep. It doesn’t knock you out like some remedies you may be used to. It more helps to calm the active mind to help you rest.

I love that my 9 year old loves to read. I also love that she is not shy sharing her feelings. If she’s sad, she will let the world know! Some children aren’t so free with sharing their emotions and they tend to bottle it up.
Hope and I read this adorable book together and she asked me why the sweet lil dino didn’t just let her sadness out. Awwwww…
Lolly, this adorable pink dino, was ignored and felt sad and the tears would well up but not come out, she just felt so blue! You will have to read the story to find out what happens.
I think this is a great story for all ages to teach children about feelings and how kindness matters! There are many ways to interpret this. It could be used to demonstrate how to express feelings, how to talk to a trusted adult, how to welcome all children into the group. It’s such a valuable book!
Hope felt such compassion for the sweet lil Lolly. You will too.
