Time to break out the long sleeves.

I love how soft this shirt is, and it looks great on my husband. The slim fit and button front placket give this shirt a tailored look and fit that’s easy to dress up or down for any occasion. My husband is notoriously picky about how his shirts fit, and will not wear anything that is too loose or ill-fitting.

This shirt actually looked like it was tailored to fit his body- it fits his chest and shoulders well, and tapers in at the waist instead of being cut straight down like most t-shirts. Usually I have to order up a size in order to find long sleeve shirts that cover his arms, but this one actually had plenty of sleeve length and fit his body.

This henley is 95% cotton, 5% polyester, and has enough stretch to conform and hug the body when you’re moving around, without losing its shape. The buttons on the front are all functional, and there is a panel of fabric sewn in behind them if you choose to leave the buttons undone. I ordered this shirt in grey, but it also comes in black so I think I’ll pick that one up as well.

I would definitely recommend this shirt- it’s comfy and stylish, and made very well. I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Faster, Longer Lasting Pain Relief with #flanaxusa

We’ve all had some form of pain at some point. Body aches, menstrual cramps, headaches, back pain- there’s always something that hurts, right? Of course you don’t want to take tons of medications, but sometimes you have no choice.

When I really need to knock out my aches and regular ibuprofen isn’t cutting it, I take Flanax. It’s an over the counter pain reliever tablet consisting of 220 milligrams of naproxen sodium, and I’ve found that one of these really helps to make my pain more manageable.

These work especially well for abdominal cramps and back aches related to “that time of the month”, and they don’t upset my stomach the way other OTC pain relievers sometimes can. Plus, the relief I get from Flanax lasts longer than a couple of hours, so I don’t have to pop another pill in such a short amount of time.


I would definitely recommend these tablets if you need a better way to deal with everyday aches and pain. You can find this product at http://www.flanaxusa.com, if you’re interested. I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review.

A new moisturizing must-have…

I don’t use a moisturizer at night, because my skin tends to be oily, so I don’t like to apply too many products at once. But after I wash my face in the mornings, I have to apply a good moisturizer, otherwise my makeup doesn’t go on smoothly, and it ends up looking cakey after a couple of hours.

I like that this is a very light formula, and it absorbs quickly without leaving my skin feeling greasy or weighed down. There is a slight tingle when I first apply it, accompanied by a cooling sensation, which I assume is from the witch hazel and green tea. It has a very mild peppermint scent from the peppermint oil, and moisturizes my skin really well.

The biggest selling point of this for me is that it doesn’t irritate my skin or cause me to break out- in fact, it actually seems to help reduce the redness and irritation when I do have breakouts.

I would definitely recommend this moisturizer for daily use, even if you have oily or acne prone skin. You can find more information or order your own here on Amazon.  I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed are 100% my own.


Das Boot- Let the festivities begin!

My husband’s family is German, and tradition is very important to him, so I thought this would make a nice novelty gift that also held some meaning for him. I ordered the two liter drinking boot, which we discovered will hold four beers easily as long as you let the foam settle a bit between each pour. That makes this the perfect vessel for drinking while binge watching sports or manning the grill at a cookout! Just make sure to tip the toe of the boot to one side or the other when you drink- trust me, it’s a rule for a reason.

The glass is very thick, and the finish is completely smooth. This glass was packaged quite well too- it arrived sandwiched between two thick pieces of styrofoam inside the decorative box, perfectly safe and unscathed. He was thrilled to have received it just in time for Oktoberfest, and it will be on display as part of our collection when it isn’t being used.

This would make a great gift for both novelty and German memorabilia collectors, and I recommend it for sure. You can find this drinking boot in both one and two liter sizes on Amazon right here, if you know someone who would like to have one.  I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review.

More even, brighter skin with #Swissvita dark spot corrector.

I have a ton of sunspots on my face, as well as acne scars and some dark spots due to a hormonal imbalance. I’ve tried lots of serums, lotions, and natural treatments to try to balance out my skin tone, but I’ve never been satisfied with my results. I have acne and oily skin too, so I have to be careful about what I put on my skin or I’ll end up with a mess on my hands.

This Swissvita dark spot corrector doesn’t cause my skin to break out- actually it seems to have helped calm my skin some. I didn’t see immediate results, but over the past four weeks I have seen my spots and scars fade gradually to the point that I feel confident leaving the house without first applying foundation. I haven’t done that since I was fourteen! My skin isn’t totally flawless by any means, but it is much more even and looks brighter.

And even though I’ve been applying this serum twice a day for a month, I still have plenty left in the tube for at least another month. I love that this is packaged in an airtight, metal tube to protect the active ingredients, so it will last and continue to be effective. Just be careful not to squeeze the tube, or you’ll end up squirting out a lot more serum than you need, and you can’t put it back in! The first few times I used it, all I had to do was open the cap, and the pressure from the tube pushed enough out for me to use.

I would definitely recommend this spot corrector. I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed are 100% my own. If you could use this serum too, check it out here.

Time to Accessorize!

I really love the look of 50’s inspired dresses, and this belt looked like it would pair well with them. I think the best thing about those dresses is the silhouette they give, so I really wanted to use this belt to accentuate my natural waist while also offering a pop of color to my outfit. The clasp is really pretty, and stays closed well without pinching or falling open. It stretches quite a bit, so you can move and breathe easily when you’re wearing it. In fact, I wish mine was a little more snug so it hugged my waist instead of floating there. I am at the bottom of the range for the size I ordered, so if you are on the lower end of the range for the size you’re considering I would recommend buying the next size down if you want a more snug fit. You can find this belt in multiple colors and sizes on Amazon. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for  my honest review.


#QuitPicks offer a fresh technique for smoking cessation.

Yep, I’m still trying to quit smoking. I have stopped and picked the habit back up a few times over, and I just can’t seem to kick it for good. Lately I’ve been using these Quit Picks when I feel like smoking, since a lot of my habit is the action, not just the nicotine. They give me something to focus on until the craving passes, and they keep my breath fresh! I really like the flavor blend of cinnamon and mint, which is quite strong and lasts much longer than my usual smoke break would. I also like that the toothpicks are divided into four small and convenient pouches that are resealable for freshness and easily fit into my pocket or purse. These obviously don’t totally replace cigarettes, but they offer enough of a distraction that I don’t really want to smoke as bad as I thought by the time I’m finishes with the toothpick. I think that along with some willpower and perhaps a patch, these will help to do the trick for good.
