HotelSpa® Designer Collection Shower Review

I was very excited when I found out I was approved to review the HotelSpa® Designer Collection shower.

Product Description

• Allows each user to use hand shower hands-free at their desired height and angle.
• Mounts in minutes without plumbing, drilling and surface damage.
• Positions anywhere in the shower where convenient to you.
• Does not interfere with existing fixtures and shower caddy, can be mounted around them.
• Height-adjustable hand shower bracket with angle-adjustable holder and height lock.
• Beautiful ergonomic arch design in polished chrome with mat silver accents.
• Includes elegant 180° Swivel Leaf-design soap dish .
• Mounts securely on any surface with patented Silicone Adhesive Brackets. No damage to surface, removes easily if needed.
• Includes traditional screws & anchors for optional screw-mounting.

My Thoughts

I was very impressed when I first saw the shower set. It looks very elegant and expensive. And yes, it looks like one of those cool showers you see in hotels and spas. I also love the bonus leaf-design soap dish I got with the shower; it swivels from left to right, which I found really convenient.

The good thing about this one is it's very easy to install. You don't need to drill your wall because the silicone adhesive brackets are enough to hold the shower securely. But if you choose to mount it on your wall, the set includes traditional screws and anchors. I would suggest you do the latter if you want it more sturdy. Another feature that I love is you can position it anywhere that's convenient for you and whether you are short or tall, you can easily adjust the head to suit your needs.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this shower. Even my twin granddaughters are loving it. They love playing with water, but bath time is more fun for them now since we installed the new shower.

The HotelSpa® Designer Collection shower can be purchased through Amazon. It's fairly priced at $29.98.

Soothe Tired Feet with this Soak

A long day of running errands left your feet aching and fatigued and the quick remedy is to soak them in warm water with powdered mustard. To do: Pour 2 liters of hot tap water into a basin and stir in 2 tablespoons of powdered mustard. Then soak your tired feet for 5 to 10 minutes. A compound found in mustard seeds, Sinigrin, helps reduce inflammation and stimulates blood flow in the feet to help put the pep back in your step. Plus, mustard's antimicrobial and antifungal properties will keep your feet smelling fresh.

Where to Wear a Promise Ring

Do you have an idea on what finger you should wear personalized promise rings? Actually, it doesn't matter whether you wear a promised ring on your right or left hand. What's important is what the ring symbolizes and not how it is worn.

Normally though, many choose to wear it on the ring finger on the left hand. Since it is a promise of commitment and it often precedes an engagement, a lot of couples decide to wear their promise rings on the wedding ring finger.

Pomegranate Seed Oil Moisturizer Review

I've tried a lot of oils already, but this will be the first time I will be trying pomegranate oil. Today's review is about the Pomegranate Seed Oil Moisturizer by BeautyOils.Co.

Product Description

- 100% Pure Cold Pressed Pomegranate Seed Oil
- Full of essential fatty acids and powerful antioxidants that help protect against free radical damage and promote the regeneration of skin cells
- Fragrance free, preservative free, cruelty free, vegan, all good
- This incredibly light, anti-inflammatory oil is ideal for aging skin
- Comes with a convenient press-top cap dispenser

My thoughts

The Pomegranate Seed Oil Moisturizer has no scent. This is a plus for those who are allergic to fragrances and for those who use a lot of other products on their faces. I was expecting that my face would look shiny after application, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't. It's non greasy, it's easy to work on the skin and it absorbs fast. Although it says it works as a moisturizer, it's more like a Vitamin C Serum for me. It does moisturize the skin, but if you're skin is too dry, this may not be enough and you'll have to follow up with a moisturizer.

What I like about the oil is that it does not make you feel like you're piling up a lot of products on your face. It is very light and it doesn't really feel like you applied it on your face. I've been using this for about a week and I am already noticing some improvements on my skin. The pores are slightly smaller and my dark spots appear lighter.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this product. If you are in the market for a product to brighten dark spots, reduce pores and delay the signs of aging, the pomegranate oil is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Pomegranate Oil through the BeautyOils.Co website and on Amazon.

Disaster Preparedness

Time and weather must really been changing. We're used to tropical storms because we get a lot of that all through out the year. What worries me is those storms have gotten really strong over the past few years; too strong that they have left a lot of casualties. The places that never experienced flooding were left submerged in water for days. Scary, isn't it?

We're lucky enough to be residing in a higher place and we've never experienced floods. I don't want to be too complacent though. There may be no floods in our area, but we have experiences lost of power for days. Imagine 14 days without power? Yup, that's the longest power outage we've experienced here. It was very difficult, especially that the kids need to go to school. I had to heat their water using the stove and carry the pot all the way to the bathroom upstairs.

So that's why my husband and I decided to solve the problem. Just in case it happens again [and I'm sure it will], we have to be ready. My husband immediately contacted Century fuel products. We've asked around and this company is the most recommended by friends. They are a leading supplier of tri-fuel portable generators and tri-fuel conversion kits here and abroad. These things run on natural gas, gasoline or propane. We chose gasoline because, it's the easiest to get around here.

We've experienced several storms after we've bought the generator, and although power outages only lasted for hours, it didn't let us down. It does not give off noxious fumes and it's very quiet. It makes us feel good that we are prepared just in case power will be out for days. How about you? Are you prepared for disasters, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and massive power outages? Century fuel products are very affordable and easy to use. It doesn't even take an expert to operate their generators. And should you decide to convert it from gasoline to propane, kits are available to make the conversion easier for you. You can check out the site for more information.
