Summers Here So Why Not Enjoy Something Sweet?
I've never been a huge bottled iced tea drinker because I preferred to make my own. But after I tried this Straight Up Tea from Snapple I've since changed my mind. I was given the opportunity from Smiley 360 to sample this product for free with the 2 free coupons they sent me in the mail. I headed over to Target and found these in the refrigerated drink case by the registers in the front of the store. I chose the sweet flavor but they also had unsweetened too. I brought both bottles home and put them in my fridge for a few days. Then today after my walk I decided to give the Straight Up Tea a try. 

Right away I was pleasantly surprised that this bottled tea didn't have a strong aftertaste or artificial sweetener taste to it. In the past nearly all bottled iced teas I had tried had a real strong artificial taste that I despised. This was very refreshing with no aftertaste and it tasted just like my own iced tea I make myself. Its sweet but not too sweet or syrupy tasting. It has a great tea flavor to it as well. The bottle is a nice size too so there was plenty to quench my thirst. This might seem silly but I like the shape of the bottle as well because it fits easily in the drink holder in my car where most bottles won't. This is definitely a bottled iced tea I can see myself drinking everyday. I've already went back to Target and bought more!


I received 2 sample bottles of this product free to try.

Ozeri Brezza II 
Dual Oscillating 10" Desk Fan

 This is a great desk fan, its not one of those itty bitty desk fans that barely circulates any air at all. I love how this fan has the dual oscillating technology it moves up and down and turns side to side. The controls on the front of the fan easily allow me to operate the side to side, and up and down oscillation modes as well as the speed settings. The fan is on the larger side for a desk fan but my desk is quite large it has a separate area for my printer and some books so there's plenty of room for this fan. And for the amount of air it blows it keeps me nice and cool and also helps keep my computer tower cool as well, this fan's size is well worth it. 

The Ozeri Brezza II fan comes with all the mounting hardware so if I would ever decide to mount it on the wall I can do that. It would make a great kitchen fan if it were mounted on the wall, so I'm thinking about purchasing a second fan for that purpose. I love the handle on the back of the fan that makes it easy to move it from room to room as needed. The fan is also lightweight also making it easy to move around. Besides the amount of airflow this fan puts out I love how quiet it is. When I turn it on no matter if its on low or high or oscillating or not its whisper quiet. Sometimes if I leave the room I forget I have it on because its so quiet. There's also never any mechanical or electrical odor coming out of this fan and it never gets hot or feels hot to the touch. That is always my biggest fear when using fans is that they'll overheat and catch fire, but this one stays cool and doesn't have any odor. I can leave it on all day long while I'm working at my desk and its always cool. 





I'm very happy and satisfied with this modern looking fan. If I could change anything about it I would say I wish it had a remote. Sometimes I use it in other rooms besides on my desk so a remote would be nice so I could control it from across the room without getting up.

Great Tea & Fruit Infuser Pitcher 
with 
Bonus Ice Ball Mold 
from: Mami Wata 

 This water and tear infuser pitcher is awesome! Not only can I make hot and iced tea but also fruit infused water. It also comes with a silicone ice ball mold so I can make my own ice cubes. The pitcher is BPA free and holds 2 liters. It also fits in the door of my fridge too. I love being able to make my own custom fruit infused waters. If you look on Pinterest or even just Google it you'll find tons of delicious recipes for fruit infused water. My favorites have to be lemon and strawberry, watermelon and strawberry, and pineapple orange. There are so many though that I'm no where near finding all my favorites. This picture is very well made and I love the handle on the top.

My 2 New Go To Body Washes 
For Spring From Soft Soap
 Winter's finally over and its time for Spring which means shorts and short sleeves, and flip flops. My skin was a little dry and itchy especially on my arms and legs from Winter so I was excited to try these moisturizing body washes from Soft Soap. Both are two new scents and smell amazing! I love how these are made with real fruit extracts. The scents smell so good and last all day long. Its a hard choice choosing a favorite between Soft Soap Blooming Jasmine & Plum or Soft Soap Honey Creme & Lavender. Both leave my skin feeling really clean and fresh and lightly scented all day long. There's no greasy or soapy residue left on my skin and they rinse off easily.

The Soft Soap Honey Creme & Lavender has a rich gold color and is not watery or runny out of the bottle. It smells just like honey and soothing lavender. I like to use this at night when I shower right before bed because the honey and lavender relax me and make it easier for me to fall asleep. 
The Soft Soap Blooming Jasmine & Plum is completely clear and just like the Soft Soap Honey Creme & Lavender is not watery or runny out of the bottle. You can really smell the jasmine and plum too evenly. I use this body wash when I shower in the morning because it's very refreshing and wakes me up for my day. It also goes great with my Victoria's Secret Love Spell body mist I use after I shower. The fragrances are somewhat similar and really compliment each other. 
I have sensitive skin and I've battled acne and oily skin all my life so most body washes make my skin break out or get red and irritated. It can be so frustrating trying to find a body wash that doesn't make me break out, irritate my skin, or dry out my skin. I've tried almost every kind I could get my hands on and by far Soft Soap is the best. And I'm not just saying this because I was asked to review these, they really do work. My skin feels clean and doesn't get oily or shiny for hours after I use these. I don't get any breakouts, redness, or dry itchy skin either. I love how smooth and soft my skin feels from using the Soft Soap body washes. 

Both Soft Soap Honey Creme & Lavender and Soft Soap Blooming Jasmine & Plum come in generously sized 18 fluid ounce bottles and can be found at most grocery and chain stores for under $3 ($2.97). So these are a great budget friendly body wash! The flip top lids are easy to use too in the shower. 

I received samples of both products Soft Soap Honey Creme & Lavender and Soft Soap Blooming Jasmine & Plum in exchange for my unbiased and honest testing and review. I want to give a big Thank You to Soft Soap, Colgate-Palmolive for providing me these samples for review.


 
Love These Super Soft, Silky Sheets From Cosy House Collection


These sheet sets are so soft and feel great on my skin. The material holds it shape and doesn't stretch out, fade, or shrink after a wash. I washed these in cold water and used a medium hot dryer to dry them and there was absolutely no shrinking or those annoying pill son the fabric. The fitted sheet is long so it fits my large deep pocket mattress even with a mattress topper on it. The flat sheet is nice and long so there's plenty to curl up in. The pillow cases fit my extra thick down pillows too. I love this bamboo fabric because it keeps me warm but not too long and cuts down on night sweats when I sleep. I couldn't be happier with these sheets and I love the rich dark chocolate brown color. These are available in lots of other colors and sizes too.

Does this thing really work? Egg Tastic Ceramic Microwave Egg Cooker Fro...

Does This Thing Really Work?? 
Egg Tastic 
Ceramic Microwave Egg Cooker 
 So I decided to take a chance and pick one of these up from my local Dollar Tree. Its only $1 so not much of a loss if it turned out to be a complete flop. Its well made and I figured maybe if it didn't work for cooking eggs I could use it for other things like tea. When I brought it home and unboxed it I was surprised at how well made it is. Its a nice thick ceramic and has silicone rubber around the bottom, seal around the lid, and the handle on the lid. There's also a small hole in the lid to let any steam escape while cooking. The cooker is also dishwasher safe so cleaning it is super easy.

After reading through the instructions here are some helpful hints I found:
  • Only use 2 eggs when combining with other ingredients (onions, peppers, mushrooms,ham, sausage, bacon, cheese, etc)
  • You can use up to 4 eggs if cooking just eggs
  • Only fill to the fill line inside the cooker
  • Refer to the cooking guide card for cooking times
  • After cooking in the Egg Tastic twice allow to cool before using again
 So here's my experience with the Egg Tastic. I used 2 eggs beaten and a small handful of cheddar cheese. I have a really old microwave (1995) so I did need to adjust my cooking time to double what was recommended. The ceramic gets really hot from heating so I definitely recommend using a towel, over mitt, pot holder, or whatever when handling it. This first photo I'm showing you is after 1 minute 30 seconds of cooking. It was almost done but there was still some egg liquid in the bottom. So I cooked it another 45 seconds and the scrambled eggs turned out perfect with melty cheese.
So in conclusion I have to give the Egg Tastic 5 Stars it did an awesome job and saves a ton of time when cooking scrambled eggs and cleanup is a breeze. No messing with pan and waiting for the stove to heat up. It was so easy to make delicious cheesy eggs. Under supervision even a child could use this product. So if you're at Dollar Tree and you see this pick one up or several because these would make a great gift. And wow only $1!!!

Beat The Heat With The 
Ozeri 42in Oscillating Tower Fan
 I live on the top floor of a condo building and although we do have central air conditioning it does get a bit stuffy in here some days. Or there's days where its not hot enough for the air conditioning but perfect for windows open and fan on and this fan is perfect for all those. My favorite feature has to be the long range remote control so I can operate the fan without leaving my seat. There's also storage for the remote on the top of the fan so no more lost remote. I also love how whisper quiet this fan is. Even on high and set to oscillate its so quiet and doesn't interfere with my sleep or TV. The fan came almost fully assembled all I needed to do was attach the base and optional extension column. 

Some other great features of this fan include:
  • 1 year warranty from defects (repair or replace)
  • 3 programmable airflow patterns for sleep, comfort, & relaxation
  • 12 hour timer that can be programmed in 1 hour increments
  • multi-colored LCD screen that shows fan functions & room temperature
  • 3 whisper quiet speed settings that generate more air velocity with less noise
  • long range remote that comes batteries included
  • easy to assemble & comes with extension column adjusting the fan from 32" to 42" 
  • remote storage on top of fan that also includes buttons for all fan functions
  • oscillation mode
  • lightweight but not wobbly even on carpet
  • easy to move with handle on top of base
  • long 6 foot cord  
  • easy to read instruction manual
  •  no strong odor from fan motor

Another cool feature that I love about this fan is that when you plug it in it beeps so you know its plugged in and ready to go. To me that always has a ton of things needing plugged in is so handy because I know when I've plugged in the fan and not something else by mistake. I use this fan in my bedroom at night when I sleep and when I'm watching TV. Its so quiet it doesn't keep me awake at night and doesn't drown out my TV. Sometimes I forget I even have it on its really that quiet. 

I love how it shows the room temperature and fan functions on the LCD screen that's not too bright so it doesn't keep me awake by lighting up my room. I do wish their was a way to shut off the LCD screen at night but its really not a big deal. I really like the timer too because I can set it to turn the fan off halfway through the night so I don't wake up to a freezing cold room in the morning. Also forgetful me sometimes gets in a hurry and forgets to turn off the fan so the timer does it for me.  The handle on the back of the fan's base makes it so easy for even 5' 3" tall me to carry it from room to room or up and down steps easily. And if you're always searching for the missing TV remote like me then you'll love the convenient remote control storage on top of the fan. 

If you're in the market for a quiet fan that puts out a ton of air, is lightweight but not wobbly, and is easy to use and transport than look no further than the Ozeri Ultra.

Perfect For Movie Night Or 
A Huge Popcorn Lover Like Myself!

 I have to say this is my new favorite thing in the kitchen. It makes up to 26 cups of popped popcorn in under 2 1/2 minutes! Now if you've ever made popcorn for a family on movie night you know speed is top priority! The popcorn maker has a one switch operation that turns on and off the unit. The measuring cup works great when I need to measure out the right amount of popcorn kernels. It also doubles as a butter melting dish that melts the butter right on top of the popper. Cleanup of this machine is super easy too! The machine stays clean, all I needed to do is wash the measuring cup/butter melter from where we melted the butter. 

In the past I've always made popcorn in the microwave in the bags. Most of the time no matter if I adjust the time or temperature only about half the kernels pop and some end up black and burnt. Yuck! This popper had less than 12 unpopped kernels and none of the popcorn was burnt. The air popped popcorn produces large fluffy pieces that are nice and tender. Its so much healthier too, because I'm not using artificial butter and chemicals on my food. I can use real butter, or just eat it plain. I've found so many seasoning recipes for popcorn I can't wait to try with this popcorn machine. Some of the ideas I've found are caramel, garlic, cayenne pepper, sea salt, parmesan cheese, and more. All sound delicious and I can't wait to put my popper to good use.It also works great on regular and gourmet popping corn.
This popcorn maker is lightweight and easy to move around and transport. The base is a pretty red color with black on the inside of the machine so it matches my red and black kitchen decor perfectly. It has a auto sleep feature too that shuts the popper off if it gets too hot or gets left unattended. The popper isn't real noisy either compared to other air poppers I've seen. It does get a little carried away when it tosses out your popcorn, so I would definitely recommend a narrow, deep container to catch your fresh popcorn in. I had a few pieces fly onto the counter and 2 or 3 hit the floor but it was to be expected and nothing that was an issue to clean up.    
The Ozeri movietime popcorn maker comes with a 1 year warranty which gives me piece of mind from defects in materials or workmanship. I have always had great luck with Ozeri products and I'm not just saying that because I'm reviewing this product for them.I would definitely recommend this product to all the popcorn lovers out there or anyone looking for a healthier snack than a bag of chips. Its super easy and fast to use and hardly any cleanup at all!

Best Deluxe Salt & Pepper Grinder Set 
These would of been a great set of salt and pepper grinders, unfortunately one arrived broken and Amazon never provided me with a replacement :(  I ordered these the week before Christmas when Amazon and USPS were just throwing everything around and the arrived with the glass completely shattered. I know this because several other items I purchased also arrived broken. 

I was still able to salvage one of the grinders and it works great as a pepper grinder on my dining room table. I'm still kind of bummed I never got the second grinder but one is better than none.

Both My Pups Are Feeling Loved!!!!
 Luvsome Sample Kit 
I received these products for free from Crowdtap in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
 Both my dogs loved the Luvsome products. I used the free product coupon in my Crowdkit to purchase a 4 pound bag of the Luvsome food. I followed the instructions Luvsome provided about how to transition my dogs to the new food without having any digestive issues. It worked perfectly and we had no issues whatsoever. Both dogs love the food and scarf it down as soon as it hits their bowls.

I love how we haven't had any upset tummies or other issues. And there's been far less doggy farts which all the humans in my home really enjoy. The treats are a good size and are easy for my older Pug to chew up. Both dogs take turns playing with the ball toy too and so far its holding up to my Boston Terrier who destroys almost any toy you give her. (She's got some sharp teeth!) I had seen Luvsome food in Kroger before and was curious about trying it and now that we have I'll be buying it on a regular basis now!
