Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt and Pepper Mill and Grinder Review


Today I will be reviewing the Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt and Pepper Mill and Grinder. This is actually the second item shipped to me. The first one that should have arrived two weeks ago kind of got lost and they are still tracking it to find out what happened. Ozeri was very prompt at taking action, so a new one was sent to me right away while they are figuring out what happened to the first one.





Product Description

  • Durable eco-friendly ceramic mechanism easily grinds peppercorns, salt and spices 
  • Seasons accurately with dual adjustable ceramic grinding mechanisms for salt and pepper that adjusts from fine to coarse 
  • Features an elegant stainless-steel exterior with an ergonomic non-slip grip 
  • Uniquely designed easy-refill system prevent spillage 
  • Transparent container makes monitoring pepper level easy and reveals the grinding action; Satisfaction Guaranteed

My Thoughts

The black and stainless steel combination made it look very modern. It's easy to refill and grinds evenly. It is also sturdy and looks very durable. I found it really cool that you can adjust the amount of salt and pepper you want to grind separately. You can choose to grind a little salt and more pepper, vice versa, or you can have the same amount at the same time.





Pros

It helps you save time from grinding salt and pepper separately. It's easy to use and clean and it comes with a super easy to understand manual. The stylish design will make it a great gift to family and friends.

Cons

This product has a lot of negative reviews, but so far, I have not encountered any problems.

Recommendation

Overall, I had a great experience with this duo grinder and would recommend it to anyone who loves to cook. You can use it on the table, too.

The Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt and Pepper Mill and Grinder can be purchased on Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free complimentary of Ozeri for review purposes. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Epiphanie Giveaway (ends July 12)


Epiphanie is a nice bag to keep your camera. It has a lot of pockets where you can put all your accessories. Enter below for a chance to win a bag from Epiphanie. Winner gets to choose the style.

Pick Your Epiphanie Bag Giveaway

Sponsor: Epiphanie Bags
Epiphanie was started four years ago by professional photographer Maile (pronounced Mylie) Wilson. At the time, there were no cute camera bags for women. She hated lugging around a separate, bulky man-bag. So she'd end up leaving her camera at home or shoving it into her purse wrapped up in whatever was nearby; a towel, sock, sweatshirt.
Obviously that isn't the best way to protect expensive gear. When she realized that stylish camera bags for women didn't exist, she decided to create her own line. And it was obvious that she wasn't alone in a need for them. When Epiphanie launched in 2009, there were already almost 10,000 people on the waiting list, with all kinds of funny stories about the different things they used to wrap up their cameras: diapers, pot holders, even maxi pads! Four years later, the collection has expanded from three to twelve styles and over 60 different bags that accommodate cameras, laptops and even backpacks for men.

Prize: Winners Choice of Epiphanie Bag from Available Stock

Programs Geared to Help Further the Education of Nurses



The administrative costs to house paper sheets filled with medical records as well as the human resources needed to get that information quickly are immense expenses at many medical offices. With health informatics, nurses are able to find medical information with just a few clicks. Health informatics software stores medical data within health networks and allows a medical professional to securely access this information. This is very helpful for any medical situation, but in the case of an emergency, finding accurate medical information within a small time frame can save lives and cut medical costs.

If a student is finding this field in nursing interesting, there are several routes to go on to attain a proper education in health informatics. At UIC's nursing informatics program, for example, students can attain a master's degree in health informatics. A post-master's certificate in health informatics is available for any nurse who already has a master's degree. An education in health informatics is needed since the technical require analytical skills. This can include classes on how medical data is to be stored in the computer network or how to use specific computer programs and software. Students learn the procedures for the electronic communications between the nurse, doctor and medical administrators.

Since these programs are geared to help further the education of nurses with a bachelor's degree and a nursing career, there are many options to enroll in these master's programs. For example, many schools will offer night and weekend classes for their enrolled students. Others may allow the entire curriculum to be available online, which can help students learn the nursing material within their own schedule.

If a nurse wants to enter a rising sector in the nursing field, health informatics is a good choice. It provides numerous opportunities to utilize cutting-edge technology. Health informatics has the potential to cut costs and make health care much more efficient. Becoming a nurse trained in health informatics can help the nurse utilize their skills to make modern medicine more effective for all patients. >

So, how much light do we need?


I know that good lighting affects the overall look of your room. It sets the mood, it can make the room appear bigger or smaller and it can improve the desirability of the space; but I didn't know that the quality of lights also affects people's health. It's a good thing I stumbled upon an article about this before using my Euro Style Lighting Coupons.

There are studies that show how illumination can affect your health. In fact, some experts are linking diseases such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers to our exposure to certain types of electric light before bed and at night. Hypetension runs in my family and if it's true that lighting is linked to this, I want to find ways on how I can get the right amount of light to avoid this.

image source: uituneup.com

According to experts, getting a good quantity of light at the right intensity and at the right time of day is the key to avoid the dreaded diseases. The perfect amount of light in the morning tells our body when to wake up, feel alert and energized, while the dimmed light at night tells us to get to bed and stay asleep.

Of course, during day time, you don't need lights that are too bright. If your home has a lot of windows, you might not even need to turn on some lights at all. During the evening, brighter lights might be needed during supper or when you're bonding with your family. But come bedtime, lights should start to be dimmed to prep your body clock.

image source: smartcontrol.ie

Turning off the the TV and other gadgets an hour before bedtime also helps you sleep faster. Too bright lights at night can disrupts your body's production of melatonin which can affect you physiological and mental functions. This will greatly affect your ability to sleep well, your ability to think clearly, the timing and release of hormones and the regulation of blood pressure and glucose levels. Having a good night's rest is your key to good health.

Make sure that your lighting at home can be controlled where you an brighten it up when needed and dimmed when night time comes. Look for this feature when shopping for lights. And also make sure that they are energy efficient to help you save money. You can use these Maxxima Style Coupons to get quality, but affordable lighting for your home. Persistent lack of sleep may up your risk of developing illnesses and disorders later in life.

Treat Tummy Troubles with this Flavored Water

Upset tummy? Reach for peppermint water. It contains menthol, eugenol and anethol; compounds that enhance digestion, plus prevent and treat gas, stomach cramps and bloat. Experts add that peppermint even eases more serious concerns such as chronic constipation, nausea, motion sickness and irritable bowel syndrome. Simply spike your cold water drink with a leaf or two and you're good to go.


Add a Bright Note Outdoor Lighting


Outdoor lighting not only illuminates dark areas of your yard and patio, it adds a romantic, decorative touch. Choosing the right type of lighting can add beauty as well as security to your home.

Porch Lights
A wall mounted light over the door gives needed light when leaving the house to enter the yard or garage. This is especially important if there are stairs at the back of the house. If you have a roof overhang or extension, a pendant light or decorative ceiling fixture can provide a focal point as well as illumination. There are many attractive styles in hanging ceiling fixtures including period or modern pieces. Add a touch of elegance with an outdoor chandelier for dining al fresco. For low ceilings, choose a flush mounted style and add a plantation style ceiling fan.



Garden Lights
Add a romantic touch to your garden or walkway with garden lights. Fortunately, there are many attractive solar options so wiring is not necessary. Keep in mind that illumination will be less bright than with hard wired lights. Also expect a cooler hue than with incandescent lights.



Security Lights
Choose a combination outdoor light with a motion detector for added security. The light only comes on if an object blocks the sensor in the fixture. Most models have sensors that will not be set off by pets or backyard wildlife. Alternately, install a timer so lights go on and off at pre-set times. This provides security while saving on the electric bill.

Simple And Effective Fitness Gadgets


In the United States, there have never been more reasons to stay active. The obesity statistics are absolutely staggering in this nation. People need to get up off their butts and start moving for the sake of better health and wellness. The simplest way to stay in shape is to walk frequently. It is recommended that average adults walk at least five days a week in order to maintain their body weight. Walking leads to weight loss and also improves cardiovascular health.

Creating a workout schedule is quite simple when walking is involved. Each day, a person should have a specific distance in mind that will be covered. Over the course of several weeks, the distance should be gradually increased in order to provide a bigger challenge. Walking in circles along track and field settings are not always fun. These places may be marked with distance, but they are simply boring and dull. Some people enjoy taking walks in busy urban streets or in trail loops at local parks. Other individuals simply prefer to walk around the neighborhood. The most accurate way to measure the total distance that is covered is to use a simple digital gadget that is known as a pedometer.

This electronic device is designed to count the number of steps that a person takes. Additionally, the distance covered relative to a starting point is also measured. The units for distance can be displayed in kilometers, miles, feet, yards and meters. Additionally, the total time for the walk might also be recorded with a simple stop watch feature in some pedometers. The most advanced devices offer other important fitness feedback such as calories burned, heart rate and average speed.

The simplest pedometers are pocket size devices that have one or two buttons. Some of these items can be easily attached to a key fob or lanyard for easy carrying. Trying to visit PedometersUSA.com and other websites is an example of searching for fitness gadgets.

Some cutting edge pedometers are capable of storing data over the course of weeks. Users can record the total distance they've covered and then analyze the results. Special fitness software can be used to organize the information that is collected from pedometers. Mobile apps might also be available to sync pedometers with smartphones and tablets. No matter what type of technology is used, pedometers offer very valuable feedback on a person's fitness capabilities.

Benefits of Heart Rate Monitors


Monitoring your heart rate is one of the most important parts of exercising that you should pay attention to. While exercising is important, you don’t want to overdo it and get your heart rate too high. Getting your heart rate too high doesn’t increase the efficiency of your workout. Rather, it holds the potential of harming you by causing you to have a stroke or heart attack from throwing your heart into overdrive. Thanks to modern technology, devices have been invented that make it possible for you to monitor your heart rate to ensure that you are exercising within an appropriate range. Perhaps one of the most popular types of heart rate monitor devices are those that come in a watch form. There are numerous places that offer these types of devices, including online websites that advertise for you to find heart rate monitor watches here.



There are numerous types of heart rate monitor watches. Some of the most common types include those that are pedometers. Pedometers measure the amount of steps that you take each minute to determine the rate of your heart as well as how many calories you have burned by walking. These devices were among the first types of heart rate monitors invented, and they remain one of the most popularly utilized types.

However, there have since been more innovations in the way of heart rate monitors. For instance, almost everybody nowadays has a cell phone or other Bluetooth capable device. Now there are Bluetooth capable heart rate monitors that monitor your heart rate activity and Bluetooth the data directly to your phone where you can view your stats. All you have to do is wear the Bluetooth-enabled wristband, allow it to monitor your heart rate and all the data is sent via Bluetooth your phone or other Bluetooth device.

Heart rate monitors, like other types of electronic devices, are manufactured by a variety of manufacturers and all various types of features. When you choose to shop for your heart rate monitor online, you might be more likely to find one that has all the features that you require on it at a price that you can afford. A plethora of online retailers offer heart rate monitors to you, oftentimes at discount prices. Heart rate monitor watches might be the most advantageous type of heart rate monitor to get, though, since they are easy to transport and only require that you wear them like you would a watch.

Ranbow Bandz Loom Kit Review


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 


Here is another great product from Rainbow Bandz for me to review. I already reviewed the refill pack and the organizer, this time I will be testing the Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit.




The Rainbow Bandz kit includes:



- 1 Super durable loom
- 1 Hook with base opener
- 600 silicone latex free rubber bands
 - 24 S-clips

My Thoughts

I have two more loom kits that the twins and I have been using, but this one from Rainbow Bandz looks more durable. The hook looks pretty strong and has a base opener, my two other hooks didn't have that. The bands are strong as well, and I like that they don't have a strong smell, unlike other rubber and plastic toys. We've made a lot of loom bracelets already and we've never encountered a breakage.




Pros

The long-lasting bracelet maker set comes with a strong hook, needles, loom and latex-free rubber bands. The kit is 100% safe for kids. Your purchase is backed by a complete 90-day, no-hassle free replacement guarantee.

Cons

I didn't find anything I didn't about the kit. In fact, we absolutely love it.

Recommendation

After, I've used this kit, never again would I go for cheap counterfeit products. The Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit is a perfect toy for you and your kids this summer.

Get it now on Amazon for only $10.00. You may also want to visit their website for more information.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Perfective Ceuticals Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy Review


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I've been taking care of my skin religiously, but I never really paid attention to my around the eye area. Lately, the dark circles and puffiness seemed to be plastered there because of lack of sleep. They make me wince every time I look in the mirror; add to that my crow's feet. It makes me wince some more! I knew I needed to do something about them. A simple facial moisturizer won't do the trick.

I was already scouting for a good eye gel when I was given a chance to try Perfective Ceuticals Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy. So let's see if it does help reduce eye puffiness, lighten dark circles and eliminate wrinkles.





Product Description

  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) helps stimulate cell rejuvenation, noticeably reducing wrinkles and under eye puffiness. 
  • Matrixyl (Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4) increases overall collagen production by up to 117%. 
  • Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide) prevents the formation of wrinkles and crow's feet. 
  • Retinol reduces fine lines and dark under eye circles, protecting skin against the ravages of day to day environmental damage. 
  • Algae Extract helps restore moisture, providing targeted suppleness to the eye region.

My Thoughts

First off, it has no scent. This is a plus for those who apply make up after prepping their faces because it won't mix with other scents. It also works as a great moisturizer because it leaves the skin around the eye area soft and smooth. The consistency is creamy and it spreads easily on the skin. It's a bit tacky and shiny after application, but it's absorbed fast and the shine goes away when it dries up. I noticed a slight reduction on the puffiness of my eyes after a week of using it. I use it twice daily. There is also an improvement on my dark circles. They are lighter now. As for my crow's feet, I'm not sure if it's just me, but I do think they are less noticeable.





Pros

The eye gel is formulated to target fine lines and wrinkles, puffy eyes, and dark circles to make you look youthful. It contains ingredients that help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin's elasticity and lighten up dark circles.

Cons

The only thing that will make me think twice about this awesome eye cream is the price. It's a bit expensive for me, but considering all the wonderful things that it does, then I guess it's worth it.

Recommendation

If you're looking for an eye gel that works, this is it. You only need to apply a small amount, so your bottle goes a long way. You may also want to use it with their Anti-Aging Serum and Anti-Aging Cream for an even greater result.

The Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy with Growth Factor eye gel is available both on their website and on Amazon. You may also visit and like their Facebook page for updates

Urgent Care On Campus


There are many frequently asked questions about urgent care facilities, and every student and faculty on campus must know how to access these facilities. Every student should read through the FAQs for the health services on campus, and everyone should make sure they understand how to gain access to these services when they need them.

Minor Illnesses

The minor illnesses that many people experience can become much worse if they are not treated in a timely manner. The best thing for every student and faculty member is to see a doctor as soon as possible to make sure they are not getting worse. Many people will try to manage their own cold or virus for a few days, but these few days could cause the problem to get much worse. The people who come to the urgent care facility will find that they are feeling better in a shorter period of time.

Injuries

Any injury that occurs on campus should be treated in an urgent care facility as soon as the injury happens. The bandaging and care of these wounds should be done by a professional, and students or faculty should not wait to take care of these problems.

Also, the urgent care facility can help the students and faculty with broken bones when they occur. The broken bones can be x-rayed and splinted properly before people leave the facility.

When people are injured or sick on campus, they have a right to take advantage of the urgent care facilities on the campus. Each person should be seen by a medical professional when they are having a hard time with their health. There is no reason to go off campus for help, and there is no reason to not use a service that is paid for by the student's tuition.


Wired and Tired?



When you're feeling drained after a long day, but you're too wound up to truly relax, try this simple massage. Take a minute to firmly massage each of your ears from the top down to the lobe. This will instantly help you shift into a serene, sleepy state. And if you wake in the middle of the night, the same ear rub could have you back in lalaland in as little as 5 minutes. Why it works? According to experts, activating the accupressure points in the outer ear prompts the formation of relaxing alpha brain waves.

The Differences Between Gelato and Ice Cream


With summer in full swing, your kids are going to be craving some sweet treats to cool them down. And every once in awhile you wouldn’t mind indulging in a frozen dessert as well. This is when gelato products come in handy. Gelato is the Italian word for ice cream, and many people use the two words interchangeable. However, there are actually three distinctive differences between gelato and ice cream.



  • Ice cream has a minimum of 10-percent fat, while gelato has less than 10-percent fat. In fact, most gelato fat content is around five to seven percent. This is due to the fact that gelato is made with a greater whole milk to cream proportion. The less fat in gelato doesn’t mean less taste. In fact, the lower fat amount means the gelato isn’t as solidly frozen as ice cream, allowing it to melt quicker in the mouth. This will allow you to taste its full flavor immediately. 
  • Gelato is also churned slower than ice cream, and -- unlike ice cream -- air isn’t added to the frozen dessert. This results in a denser product with a creamier and richer taste. It’s no wonder most people consider gelato a higher quality dessert than ice cream. 
  • Another difference between gelato and ice cream is that gelato is typically served a bit warmer than ice cream. While both types of frozen desserts are served below the freezing temperature, gelato is usually served 10 to 15 degrees warmer than its counterpart. Keep in mind, however, that this is usually only true in a restaurant-type setting.


How to Serve Gelato

While ice cream is fine for most occasions, consider serving gelato during a more adult setting instead. For proper serving, however, you should keep it in a freezer set a bit higher than normal. You want the gelato to remain soft and fluffy but not hard. Simply use a paddle scoop to carefully place the gelato into small, clear serving bowls or -- for a truly elegant option -- in champagne glasses and carry them out on a large tray. The gelato itself has an attractive appearance, which can be seen through the glass-serving dish. If you want to class it up even more, you can add a sprig of fresh mint on the side of the gelato.

How Bad Does Your Breath Smell?


The smell of your breath affects how you feel about yourself and how other people perceive you. If you have a foul smelling breath, people will avoid you because more often than not, those who are very close to you are not brave enough to tell you that you have bad breath.

Take a look at the chart below and you'll see the common causes of bad breath. First thing to check is your diet; that's if you religiously take care of your dental hygiene. If you brush your teeth after every meal, floss at least once a day and clean your tongue, the most likely reason of your bad breath is the food you eat. Some foods like onion and garlic can affect your breath for some time. Yes, even if you brushed your teeth after eating, those two spices are strong enough to leave your breath smelling odd for hours.

So, if your friends are not brave enough to tell you that you have bad breath, how do you know you have it? Here's what you should do. Stick a finger (make sure it's clean) in your mouth and scrape saliva from the back of your tongue. Wipe it on the back of your hand and let dry. As soon as it's dry, smell it. If you don't smell anything, then you're good. If you smell something, ask yourself if it's a smell you want to kiss. Check the tips below on how to avoid it.

Large and thick cutting boards - Large: 13" x 9.5" - Medium: 11" x 8.5" - Small: 8" x 6" - Thickness: 5/8"

My Thoughts

I love that it's so neat and beautiful; it would easily look great in any kitchen. It's hard and it looks very strong. I tried slicing a few vegetables and it didn't leave any scars. Well, you get scars too from other types of cutting boards, but wooden cutting boards scar easily because of its softer surface, leaving pockets so moisture and bacteria can breed. The bamboo cutting board is stronger than maple or oak, so knives don't leave scars easily. Maybe, if I make it pretty hard and chop with full force, that's the time it'll get scarred.




Pros

It's hard, strong and sturdy and won't wear off easily. It's easy to clean and very hygienic. Bacteria won't be able to breed because the cutting board is dense enough to resist knife scarring. If you take care of it well and make a habit of cleaning and wiping it dry after each washing, your bamboo cutting board will last a long time.

Cons

So far so good. I didn't find anything I didn't like about these cutting boards.

Recommendation

It's great both for home and commercial use. It's tied up and packaged really nicely and would make a great gift to family and friends.

This Extra Thick Bamboo Cutting Board Set can be purchased on Amazon for only $19.78.

InstaNatural Argan Oil For Hair Treatment and Elixir Serum Review


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Argan oil, Coconut oil and Jojoba oil for hair treatment, what more could you ask for? I've tried each of the oils on my hair and all worked great, but I've never tried all of them at one time. So, I was a little giddy when my sample of InstaNatural Argan Oil For Hair Treatment and Elixir Serum arrived.




It arrived fast via Amazon and I was surprised that it also contains several other oils: Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Oil, Grapeseed Oil And Vitamin B5. My hair is definitely getting some nourishment.

Product Description


  • Organic Argan Oil Treatment for weak, limp and lifeless hair. 
  • A rich blend of Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Oil, and Grapeseed Oil. 
  • Use as leave in conditioner, overnight hair treatment or heat protectant. 
  • Reduces damage and dryness on hair and scalp, removes frizz, adds instant shine and softness.


My Thoughts

I was already imagining the different scent of all those oils, so as soon as I opened the bottle, I took a whiff. It's unscented. I'm not disappointed, though. Just a little surprised that it has no scent considering there are a lot of different oils in it. :)

I applied a little on my short hair right before going in the shower. Left it for about 5 minutes, then I shampooed as usual. My hair felt soft instantly and I love that it didn't leave my hair looking greasy and it tamed the frizz.

I also tried it as a leave in conditioner and I love it. You can see that my hair is so shiny and tamed right after I applied a few drops.



Pros

It deeply nourishes the hair and scalp. All those oils will make your hair healthy and stronger. Leaves hair silky smooth, soft and shiny. It can be used as a deep conditioner or a leave in conditioner.

Cons

I honestly didn't find anything that I didn't like about the product.

Recommendation

This is great for those who have dry scalp and hair. You'll save a lot of money from this oil because you can have a spa treatment right in the comfort of your home. I love this product and I highly recommend it.
