Kids Digital Stylus Crayon {Review}

Whenever I'm out with Kae, my phone is usually the bribery tool when It comes to calming her down to finish getting shopping done. Naturally I don't have any apps on my phone for her but I needed something to chill her out.

I got to review the Kids Stylus Crayon from Painting Lulu. Yes, I said crayon although it's not what you'd think. It's rubber like a stylus and totally safe for all your touchscreen products!

It's super chunky and perfect for Kae to hold while playing with my phone since naturally her hands are so little and can't really hold a pen or pencil.  It definitely helps her learn to maneuver on my phone while trying to learn to color.

It comes with a link to the Painting Lulu coloring app that has different books, and plenty of pages for her to color on. And lots of crayon color options on the screen. In the parent settings you can create and account and even send them to family and friends, I haven't played with that feature yet but it's awesome to know it's there because I might be able to share them with her grandparents in Florida.

I use the app on my S3 galaxy, it says it's compatible with Ipad, Iphone, Kindle Fire, Galaxy & more but before you buy just definitely check into it though I don't think you'll have a problem. I'm even going to check it out on my tablet.

On the package, it had one of those QR barcodes, so I downloaded the QR barcode scanner app for free in order for it to open the app link, once it's downloaded it keeps the weblink for the app to easily reopen.

There are so many different colors to choose from ~ black, green, blue, orange, pink, red and yellow, I choose black to hide the dirt since my little mini is crazy destructive at her age! They are super cheap at only 6.99 on amazon!

I would highly recommend checking it out if you need something inexpensive and fun to keep your child amused safely with your phone!

Seaweed Powder {Review}

I simply enjoy trying Insta Natural's products! This one is their 100% natural Seaweed Powder!
It comes in a huge 24oz tub! There is enough to make LOTS of different facial masks or even to wrap your body! (I haven't had the chance to do the wraps YET.)

"This natural seaweed kelp powder improves skin tone and texture while making this in the comfort of your home. There is plenty of vitamins, minerals and iodine that help remove the impurities from your while relieving aches and pains"

As I said above you can use this as a body wrap to help with cellulite. You mix as directed on the tub and then wrap yourself in saran/plastic wrap, but a sheet or sweatpants and shirt over you to help sweat out the toxins and take a warm shower. Again, I have not gotten to try that aspect as I don't have the unlimited time to be indisposed if you will. But I can't wait to try it SOON!

But I did get to try it as a facial mask/scrub and I did enjoy it. It made my face feel great but I smelt like a walking swamp marsh due to the seaweed smell. If you can tolerate that it isn't bad. If the smell was toned down a little bit I would love it even more than I already do. When using it as a facial the seaweed helps get rid of nasty toxins and help fight acne leaving you with a clean and softer face.
One of the best things, It is certified organic and 100% NATURAL kosher certified seaweed powder!

If you should try the scrub like I did with the sea salt, make sure the salt is finely ground. Trying to rub it on your face is a little rough, and slightly hard to apply, as you can see in my picture of it on my face, the chunks are the salt but it was a little messy applying so I definitely did it over the bathroom sink.. I would also recommend putting on some rubber gloves when applying because if you have long nails like I do, it gets under your nails.

I would definitely recommend this product as I do with all the other insta natural products that I have tried. They put some care into their products that not everyone does.

Baby Wrap {Review}

When my daughter was little she hated the conventional baby carrier's and wouldn't be in them any longer than she had to be even though it made it easier for me. I honestly wish I had this when my daughter was a newborn because this wrap is amazing!

Let me share with you the Baby Wrap by Baby More Co. It holds a child up to 32lbs so luckily my daughter is just under but she actually let me use it to hold her and carry her in which is like when pigs fly.

I love how soft the fabric is and light weight. It's extremely comfortable and she feels safe being with me. When I put it on she was all excited for me to carry her in it. We tried it at home first because I wasn't even sure I wrapped it around me correctly, which that did take me a few times to get just right - I wish the last few parts of the instructions were a little clearer but I figured it out after playing with it.

I love that it includes a bag to keep it stored in while your not using it so it can easily be thrown in your diaper bag or left in the vehicle if that's when it's needed most. Or even the bottom of the stroller if your child is like mine and refuses to sit in the stroller after awhile but isn't somewhere you want to put them down, like at the mall or shopping in a store.

I went to a bridal expo with my best friend over the weekend and brought this with me because my daughter was beyond ready for a nap and wouldn't stay in her stroller so I put this on and she took a nap right on me surrounded by people. It couldn't have been more perfect to know she was safe, comfortable and right where I could see her.

This wrap comes in at 35.20 on Amazon and it's beyond worth it and works better than those more expensive wraps. I can't jusitfy crazy expensive prices for something I can get at a reasonable cost that does the EXACT same thing!!

This comes in pink, black and I believe navy which is out of stock at the moment. I love anything pink so naturally I went with that, it's a very soft pink not shocking at all so it'd work for anyone. When the time comes to have another child, you can bet that I will still be using this wrap!!

You can also machine wash this on gentle cycle! Make sure not to iron it though! *Based on intructions*

I would definitely recommend this product and possibly even buy it for an expectant mom if I needed a baby shower gift!

5 HTP Mood & Weight Support Pills {Review}

I have been in a wicked funk and definitely stressed which is no way to be especially when you have a happy 2yr old little girl.

So when Chronos Pharma let me review their natural and pure 5 HTP Mood & Weight Support Enhancer pills I figured I'd give it ago.

They drastically helped me do a 180. I've been calmer and my stress level though I have alot going on, it has been thrown by the way side and I'm just taking it as it comes. They are set at 50mg and you can take up to 200mg. I just took the smallest dose until I knew it'd be okay in my body since sometimes wacky side affects happen but I had none will these.

I will say, them advising to take it at night is a good idea as it honestly does make you drowsy and help you to fall asleep. I'm up throughout the night with my daughter so I can't honestly say that I had a restful sleep but someone who doesn't have interuptions, probably will be rested.

I also have a hard time loosing weight and I haven't as of yet seen any weight loss by using these but after using them for awhile, I probably would.

I would highly recommend trying these pills for any of the above listed reasons.

And you don't just have to take my word for it - look at all the other people who have tried this and love it on the reviews.

Dead Sea Mud Mask {Review}

Insta Natural asked me to review their Dead Sea Mud Mask.

I liked that their wasn't a smell at all. The color is a little unappealing but when does mud ever look good?

The mask is an all natural detoxifier. The mask takes care of the extra oil on your face, dirt and other toxins inside your body. It's shown to help your pimples and blackheads with regular use.

It also gives you a smoother looking complexion to even your ton and help reduce wrinkles.
They also say that you can use this on different parts of your body to help relieve muscle aches and pains, I did not use it for that but I might have to try that.

I only use it on my face, the thing that I did not like about the mask was that it applied very loosely, I thought it would have been more like a paste so that it applies thicker.

It made my skin feel really soft, I enjoyed the cooling effect when I applied it to my face. It did take about 30mins for it to fully dry, but maybe that's because I applied it while I was in the bath, not really sure.

There is a great mix of shea butter, jojoba oil, aloe vera, calendula oil and hickory bark extract that helps moisturize your face or body. It's also supposed to help soothe dry and irritated skin.

I would definitely check it out. It definitely makes your skin feel great.

Zenwise Hair Growth Vitamins {Review}

I have been struggling for last 2 years to get my hair to grow so I finally caved and decided to try vitamins in hopes that something would help.

All throughout my life, my hair has been long and down to my back. When I graduated high school, I decided to cut it and it has hardly grown long like I want it too.

Zenwise asked me to try their Hair Growth Vitamins and I said absolutely.

Their capsules are easy to swallow because they are soft.  And included in those capsules are 5000 btu of biotin which helps promote hair growth and just healthy hair.

It also helps with other deficiencies your body might be having to help your hair grow.

I did notice my hair start to grow some, not a huge difference yet but it's definitely longer than when I started taking my vitamins.

My sister did some highlights in my hair this summer and started at the roots as you would and my hair has grown enough that my highlights are further back in my hair and I no longer have anything in the front. I will continue to take these and see how long I can grow my hair. I've come to realize I may be deficient in something in my body that is stopping my hair from growing.

One thing I did notice is, well this does make everything else grow quicker as well - legs and armpits etc. But if that's the least I can find wrong with it, this company is doing something right!

Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler {Review}

I have never used an eyelash curler before while doing my makeup. They honestly look like some kind of torture device if you don't know what they're for,

But when Izy Trends let me review one for my honest opinion, I thought why not I have nothing to loose.

So it comes in this cute purple box. The instructions are on the box. Inside you find the eye lash curler, and 2 extra white silicone pads for the curler.

Now it definitely took some getting used to how to do it without pulling my eyelashes out of my head, I'm honestly joking as they don't pull them out of your head as I was just afraid to use it because I had never used or tried one before but after the 3rd try of playing with it, I got it down and helped my eye lashes curl more than they already do after I put mascara on.

It doesn't matter the length of your lashes either, the curler will work on anyone! They have a 100% lifetime guarantee or your money back. They curl ALL of your eye lashes!

This picture, the left is natural, the right is curled with the curler.

I honestly do not think you will be disappointed if you try this eye lash curler. As always, if your afraid, read all the other reviews. They don't lie!!

The final picture, with my lashes curled and mascara applied!

This form of calcium is for women and men over the age of 45 specifically those lookin to prevent and recover from osteopenia and osteoporosis.

These plant based calcium are absorbed and easy to digest. They did not cause me to feel bloated, gas or constipation.

They are alittle larger but are vegetable based capsules so some people may have a hard time swallowing them with just water, juice may be alittle easier. It did take me a few to get used to trying to swallow them.

If you doubt that it works, feel free to read the reviews by other on amazon. This actually works.

Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract {Review}

Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract helps safely provide weight loss.

When I need a caffeine boost or help with my migraines, I normally go for soda. Taking these capsules, instead has helped.

Dr Oz has even stated on his show that these actually work.

These help release glucose into your body so that it helps boost your metabolism and burn fat in the liver.

They work together to help eliminate weight gain and stop your body from storing the fat.

The chlorogenic acid in the pills are a strong antioxidant which help stop bad chemicals in your body and prevent them from causing even more damage over time.

I think if  you continue to use this it will have multiple health benefits between the energy boost and helping burn fat. Over the course of the few weeks I've been using it, I did notice a small amount of weight loss and with a continued use, I imagine you would see an even bigger increase, and of course with proper diet and exercise, an even larger difference will be noticed.

Naturally they are coffee bean so if you don't like coffee, I wouldn't entirely recommend trying them, they aren't over powering but when you open the bottle you can definitely smell them, I personally don't drink coffee because I just don't like the smell or taste but didn't quite mind taking these as your not sucking on them, just a simple swallow.

I definitely helped put a kick in my step with this which working 2nd shift is a major health benefit and plus for me. 

I would definitely recommend checking them out here ~ Green Coffee Bean
