Vitamin C Facial Toner by InstaNatural Review

Finally, a toner from Instanatural. This is my favorite brand when it comes to skin care and I was recently given a chance to review it. Let's see if it's as great as their other products.

Product Description

Our Facial Spray is a premium toner that provides many benefits and is suitable for everyday use:
- Cleans and purifies skin
- Provides Anti-Aging Benefits
- Shrinks appearance of pores - Removes excess oil and dead skin cells
- Restores balance to natural pH levels
- Helps protect your skin against impurities
- Gives you instant refreshment - Preps skin for other applications

My Thoughts

I have oily skin and when looking for a toner, I always look for a product rhat works for my skin type. The first time that I used InstaNatural's toner, I noticed that my face is less oily even after a few hours of applying it. And I like that it deeply cleans. It doesn't sting and I felt that my face is very clean, soft and smooth.

It's been more than a week and I love the results I'm getting. My pores are a bit smaller now and I'm sure I'll find out more about its benefits as I continue to use this product.


If you're looking for a product to hydrate, renew and restore your skin, InstaNatural's Vitamin C Facial Toner is a great product to try. It's gentle on the skin, yet it deeply cleanses. Yes, this is another great product from InstaNatural and I recommend this.

Where to buy?

InstaNatural's Vitamin C Facial Toner is available on Amazon and on their website. You may also like them on Facebook and follow on Twitter for updates. out of your house smelling really nice.


The oil works to beat the signs of aging, sun spots, dry, rough, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and acne scars. It also helps smooth wrinkles and fine lines. If you have these problems, Dr. Song's Rosehip Oil is a good product to try.

Infuser Bottle by FlavFusion Review

I love drinking water and I always make it a point to drink 8 - 10 glasses daily. Most of the time I drink it plain, but sometimes, I infuse it with whatever fruit I have in the fridge. I was very thrilled when I found out I was one of the chosen bloggers to review the Infuser Bottle by FlavFusion.

Product Description 
Give Your Water a Fruity Splash!

  •  26 ounce fill capacity 
  •  Easy to use and makes delicious natural fruit flavored beverages! 
  •  Liquid flows around and through the fruit to flavor the drink. 
  •  Removable fruit infuser - BPA Free - Lead Free - Bottle is made of PET Plastic 
  •  the Safest Plastic in Drinkware and the New Alternative to Polycarbonate 
  •  Basket is made of Polypropylene 
  •  Wide Mouth - 63 mm Neck 
  •  Fits most Cup Holders 
  •  Hand Wash Only 
  •  Do Not Microwave 
  •  Made in the USA

My Thoughts

This is my first time to use a water bottle infuser. Normally, I would just slice a fruit and dump it in a cold glass of water and that's it.

Unlike any other drinking bottles, this one has a basket-like infuser in the middle. It is made of plastic, but it looks durable enough and it's BPA free.

What I love about this bottle infuser is the sipper is placed directly on top of the infuser, so when I take a sip, I get to savor the flavor of the fruit right away. It makes the water tastier and fruitier. I tried tilting the bottle while it's full and there was no leak. That means the lid screws perfectly onto the bottle, so your things are safe if you put it inside your bag.

Aside from orange and lemon, cucumber is also one of my favorite fruits to add to my water. I stuffed the "basket" with slices of lemon and cucumber and filled it with cold water. I tell you, it's very refreshing and the water smells heavenly.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this infuser bottle and I'm drinking more water because of this.


This is a great way to encourage someone who doesn't like drinking plain water to drink more. Adding a fresh twist to the water will definitely make everyone drink more and become healthier. I highly recommend this!

Where to buy?

Infuser Bottle by FlavFusion is available on Amazon. For more information about the product, please visit Big Easy Brands.

Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream Review and Giveaway (ends 10/10)

Today's review is about the Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream. Below are some of the things you should know about the product.

  • You no longer have to buy a collection of products to fight the signs of aging since Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream serves as a moisturizer, day cream, night cream, and makeup base.  
  • Our unique formula stimulates collagen production and rebuilds the cellular matrix of the skin using three clinically proven ingredients - a super-absorbent form of hyaluronic acid, Argireline (5%), and Matrixyl - a combination that makes this anti-wrinkle cream for face and neck extraordinarily effective. 
  • Your skin will benefit and look years younger from our high quality ingredients that are paraben free and not tested on animals. You will have smooth, toned, attractive skin again.

My Opinion

The cream has a thick consistency and has a very mild citrus scent. I have tried a lot of moisturizers and so far, this is the thickest. Surprisingly, it is easy to work on the skin and it absorbs fast. I have oily skin, but it didn't leave my skin feeling greasy and looking shiny. Instead, I had soft, smooth and well-hydrated skin. It's been a week and I can already feel that my skin is tightening. I have also noticed a very slight reduction of my crow's feet.

They say you should give it at least 12 weeks to see a great improvement, but I've only been using it for a week and I already noticed that's it's working. I'll continue using this because I love the results that I'm getting.


If you are looking for a moisturizer that works to soften skin and combat the signs of aging, Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream is a great product to try. It works for all skin types and is also great under makeup.

Where to buy?

Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream is available on Amazon. Should you decide to purchase now, you may click on this link and get $10 off. Coupon expires 10 October 2014.

Am I Superstitious or just a Little Crazy at Online Bingo Play?

Are you the person who stores that lucky outfit in the wardrobe for ages. Perhaps it was the outfit that got you lucky when you participated in a contest. Do you always sit in the same position on the chair when you are waiting for a particular result and perhaps before the same had got you some positive results.

You have your set of lucky clothes, shoes and accessories that you always ensure to put them on when you are waiting for some good news. If you have done any of the above then I must tell you that you are being a little superstitious or rather a little crazy. Even I still back and think, what shall I say for doing such acts. Well at times even I am! At times, even I consider that there are certain things that shower a little good luck on me. Especially when I am playing bingo! I have one crazy habit which I ensure to do whilst playing bingo games.

It so happened that in my first encounter with bingo play I got lucky for a winning. And, I was utterly excited with this that I ensure my other experiences are also alike my first one. Being a fashion freak, the bingo site New Look Bingo intrigued me to quite an extent. And, just with the intent of exploring the site I ended up playing bingo across the bingo rooms. This bingo site has numerous bingo offerings across its variety of bingo rooms. And, an absolutely amazing zone of free bingo games too. You can play for free here, every single day! And, that is how I started my experience at New Look Bingo. At first I snapped up a few freebies and after a bit of exploration, I made a deposit to try the fun and to my surprise I blowed in a big jackpot cash into my account. Unbelievable! That too at the very start of my experience. Sounds so surprising! I sat down wondering, how it all happened - and ended up giving credit to my peach colour T-shirt and my denim hot shorts. The outfit anyways is one of my favourites and after bagging in the winning at New Look Bingo, perhaps I’ll keep this outfit forever. If you also wish to indulge in for a similar experience, then Goto Newlook Bingo today!

Although, at the back of my mind, I know that bingo is ruled by random number generators and the games are absolutely automated mechanically and no outside sources can control them. However, I still intend to do some crazy activities while playing bingo. Perhaps, I am not superstitious, I am just crazy! Well, I am still under this dilemma and trying to find out if I am really superstitious.

As I am not a very big bingo addict, so I do not indulge in the games every day, but whenever I do I ensure to put my lucky outfit on! At times, I have not also but again at times I have won also. On days I do not win, I don’t curse the outfit but just consider the day was not very suitable to win - may be even if I won, I would have lost the cash for something unnecessary. So, what say - do you think I am superstitious?

The Key to Stronger Nails

Does your nails break and flake easily? Here's an at home DIY to keep your nails looking pretty. 

Mix 2 egg yolks with 1 teaspoon olive oil; soak nails for 5 to 10 minutes twice a week. The biotin in the egg yolk and triglycerides in olive oil penetrates the nail bed and work to nourish and strengthen nails.

My Favorite Lip Balm

I've been looking for the Soft Rose Lip Balm by Labello for a long time now, but I never found it online. My mom gave me two of these when she and dad went to Italy. I really liked it because its creamy, protective and extra-smooth formula makes my lips soft and supple. I am so glad that now I can finally get it from here. My daughter found this website while looking to buy a gift for her best friend.

Instant Energizer

Need a little boost to power through a long day? Try this quick trick.

Using your index finger, firmly press the indentation just above the center of your upper lip for 7 seconds. Release, then repeat twice. According to acupressurists, pressing this point increases blood flow to the brain, delivering a jolt of energy.

The Real Benefits of Memory Foam

Stores now, more than ever, are packed to the gills with products promising to make you feel better, give you more energy, and generally improve your quality of life. Most often, these promises are seen on caffeine-packed energy drinks, "natural" alternatives to classic products, or a functional, but overpriced version of the product using a "brand-new" material.

These are all targeted at people looking for quick solutions in a flashy way. But for people looking to make real changes in their lives, it often comes down to the areas of life they spend the most time on: diet, work, and in the case of this topic, sleep.

While by no means flashy (and possibly why it is often overlooked) sleep quality is one of the biggest markers of healthy and productive people. The ability to get a consistent sound and refreshing night's sleep can make a difference in every facet of people's lives. For people who struggle with this, a change in bedding may be all it takes to make a difference, and to many, memory foam has proven to be the answer to an assortment issues.

While some companies may plug their memory foam products into the hype machine, the material, and how it works, is still very simple. As it warms from body heat, it softens, and those soft areas yield to areas of greater pressure on our bodies. This contouring is created where it is needed most, so pressure generated in these areas on traditional beds is relieved. Memory foam permits better circulation for many people, while supporting areas of lesser pressure that also are ignored by traditional bedding.

Better circulation means your body doesn't need to "toss and turn" to return blood flow to an area cut off by a pressure point, so your sleep is interrupted less. And with your whole body receiving support, most people wake up with fewer aches.

So while it may not be all bells and whistles, a switch to memory foam bedding may be just the change you need in your life.

Tenant Screening is a Must

Why take a risk and turn over the key to your property with a stranger? Would you take a chance on tenant problems like late rent payments, damage to your property and many other hassles that bad lessees create? I'm sure those are the last things in your mind when you decided to let out your property.

Finding a good tenant is a serious business. A thorough background check and financial screening should be conducted before closing a deal with a renter. With just a few clicks of the mouse, all these can be done in a breeze with no extra cost.

Criminal records are open for public viewing with just a name and an ID. However, you have to make sure that you ask for the real name of the person and the Identification Card is valid.

As for the employment and income screening, there are online websites that can help you check these things. Tenantify is one of them. They can do a thorough check of your would-be tenant's employment record, his current job and his capacity to pay the monthly rent. Landlords do not pay for this service; it's the tenants who pay for the report.

Having a knowledge of the person's criminal and financial background will help you decide if he is worth giving the key to your rental unit or he is someone who would just give you a lot of problems later on. Don't take any chances, do a tenant screening now.

The Advantages of Artificial Grass

Having and maintaining a beautiful lawn is a daily chore for many who value the appearance of their lawn as much as the appearance of their home. Keeping all of the grass and foliage in top health and maintaining all of it is time consuming, expensive and can be frustrating and exhausting at times. In the middle of summer, trimming shrubbery and mowing grass is sometimes required two or three times per week. But, there are alternatives that can provide the same quality appearance with little or no maintenance.

Imagine a lawn that looks perfectly manicured every day without having to be touched. Does it sound too good to be true? Artificial grass is the optimal choice for the most discerning of business professionals or homeowners. Synthetic grass products, which are all produced in the USA, have the look and feel of real grass, but they offer numerous advantages when compared to real grass.

Synthetic grass is not vulnerable to "silver dollars" or other invasive weeds. Nor is it vulnerable to bug infestations that can destroy a beautiful lawn in days. If the grass is in direct sunlight, there are types of synthetic grass made specifically for exposure to the UV rays without losing its beauty. And, you will save water, especially in the summer, because a synthetic lawn never needs to be watered.

Artificial Turf Supply is one company that is expert in the field of recommending and providing the exact type of synthetic grass for your project. Whether the project involves commercial use - a golf course, a turf surrounding the entrance to a gated community or other similar uses - or personal use, such as your own yard, the experts at Artificial Turf Supply are ready to answer your questions and help you design the yard of your dreams.

The products offered at Artificial Turf Supply are of the highest quality and are safe for children and pets. There are types of synthetic grass for the pet owner whose pet may need to use the bathroom on the lawn - no problem. There are specific types of synthetic grass that are meant to be in direct sunlight and sustain damaging UV rays. Durability and high quality are the main elements that you can expect from the professionals at Artificial Turf Supply. With over 130 service locations, nationwide shipping, next day shipping and customer service professionals always ready to assist you, Artificial Turf Supply Commercial and Residential Division is the right choice.

Lavender with a Twist

When it comes to arranging flowers in the most modern way, more and more floral experts like Bloominous, an online flower shop that specializes in DIY floral arrangements, are skipping the vase. Just take a look at these freestanding mini bouquets. They showcase each bloom's beauty from blossom to stem. You can even dry them after your gathering to create a lovely, long-lasting nosegays.

To do: Cut lavender stems to 7 inches. Then arrange them in your hand, twirling as you add one bloom at a time at a diagonal, so the stems form a spiral. The lower you grasp them the larger in circumference the bouquet will be. When the arrangement is the size you desire, bind the blooms with a rubber band and tie with a sweeping length of ribbon. To keep it from toppling, gently spread the stems at the base. Then gently turn the nosegay upside down and use shears to trim the bottoms of the center flowers, making them slightly shorter than the surrounding blooms. The longer outer stems will create a stable foundation that ensures the bouquet stays erect.

And if you think those pretties are not enough to mesmerize your guests, give plain napkin rings a stylish update with lovely mini lavender wreaths. Simply cover the rings with 5" cuttings of lavender and secure with wire. To keep the blooms from shedding, give the finished circle two coats of aerosol hair spray.

Review: pH Care Vzone Products

I was one of the lucky bloggers accepted to review a pH Care Vzone product. I was expecting to receive either the Vzone Bikini Trimmer or the Vzone Bikini Shaver, but to my surprise, I got way more than that.

Here are the contents of the bag:
  • 1 pack (3 pieces) of disposable Bikini Shaver 1 pack of Bikini Trimmer - 1 pH Care key chain 
  • 1 30 ml bottle of pH Care Cool Wind Intimate Wash 
  • 2 3-Day Trial packs Digestics 
  • 5 sachets pH Care Cool Wind Intimate Wash 
  • 5 sample packs pH Feminine Wash
  • 1 small plastic pouch 
  • 1 small eco-friendly carry pouch

My Thoughts

Bikini Trimmer

It's small, it's pink and it's cute! The tips are rounded to help prevent accidental cuts and I like that they made the handle shorter. It makes the trimmer easier to hold and for you to have better control. The skin around the intimate area is quite sensitive, so the rounded tips are a great plus.

Bikini Shaver

As for the disposable shavers, they are not the usual shavers that we see or use. The heads are smaller and at the bottom of the blade is a comb with a protective skin guard to minimize irritation. The blade is only 5/8" wide, so it's easier to reach delicate intimate areas. It's sharp enough to clean the hair in just a few gentle strokes. I'm not sure though, how many times you can use it before you replace it. I guess it's just the same with other disposable shavers.


Whether you prefer a really close trim or a clean shave down there, the pH Care Vzone Trimmer and Shaver are great choices. The shaver doesn't irritate the skin because of its soothing Aloe Vera moisture strip.

The trimmer and shaver work well together. You trim the hair first to at least half an inch long, then you use the shaver to eliminate the hair in the bikini area. It's even greater when you shave using the feminine wash instead of a soap. The blade slides easily and the skin is soft and silky smooth. Yes, I would recommend these products.

Where to buy?

Vzone® Trimmer and Razor are available in Mercury Drugstore, Watsons, 7-Eleven and Rustans and Robinsons** Supermarkets for only P49* (Trimmer) and P99* (Shavers, 3 pcs). For more information about the Vzone products, please visit Unilab. You may also like them on Facebook and follow on Twitter for updates.

Disclosure: Product/s mentioned above were sent to me for free by Unilab for evaluation purposes. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own. All photos used in the review were taken by myself or family. However, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

A Job Helping Others

A degree in social work has several advantages. It only takes a few years to obtain a degree in the field. When you begin working, you will see that your career makes a difference in the lives of all you touch. You can obtain a degree at schools like Case Western University.

There are numerous job opportunities when you graduate, and the pay scale is higher than average. There is also room for advancement in the field. One of the places you can make a difference is in a school. some of the children in the school need to talk to someone about their home life. When they can't talk to their teachers, you will be the first person they come to in order to tell someone about possible fighting and other instances of neglect. Your job is to report any concerns to the proper authorities, but you need to make sure the concerns are legitimate. When you talk to the child, you will see that you are someone who the child can trust as long as you don't judge the situation.

If you don't want to work with children, you can get a job in a hospital. When people enter the hospital with thoughts of suicide, you will be the one to talk to them about why they might want to cause harm. There are also patients who might need to make decisions about their health if they are in the final stages of a disease. They will need someone to talk to about their final wishes and how to let their family know about the diagnosis. At the same time, you can help family members of loved ones deal with the grief of the imminent death of the patient.

Another option is working in a department of social services. In a department like this, you are faced with several types of people who are looking for help. You might deal with people who need help with food or housing. There are also situations where you might need to visit a family with children who are being abused or neglected. This is a job where you know that you will help others every day.

Color Lover Curl Define Shampoo and Conditioner by Framesi Review and Giveaway

My hair is thick, wavy and frizzy. I was born with jet black hair, but when the white hair started to show, I have dyed it in different colors, chestnut, mahogany, dark brown and light brown. And although it's already wavy, I had it curled before thinking that it'll look better with curls than with waves. I was wrong and straightened it. I liked it when my hair is long and straight, but having my locks straightened for the nth time damaged it. Right now, I'm back to my usual short, thick and wavy hair. I still dye it black to hide the gray and white hair.

I was recently sent samples of Color Lover Curl Define Shampoo and Conditioner by Framesi. I like the Framesi brand. I have tried the hairs pray; it has a strong hold, but it keeps my hair soft and shiny.

Product Description

Add curl definition, infuse them with moisture and protect your color with this shampoo and conditioner by Framesi. 100% Vegan, sulfate, gluten, paraben and DEA free. If you love your curls, then this is the product for you.

My Thoughts

First off, I love the mild coconut oil scent of the shampoo. Growing up in a tropical country, I'm used to the scent of this oil and I really like it. The conditioner, on the other hand has a stronger scent, but it's not overwhelming. Unlike the shampoo this one has a floral and herbal scent. It's not often you encounter products like these where the two have totally different scents. Usually, the scent of the conditioner is closely if not similar to the scent of the shampoo.

The first time I used the shampoo, I noticed that it became soft and shiny. It's wavy in a nice way and the frizz is gone. This combo really does its job at taming waves and curls.


Both the shampoo and conditioner have pleasant smells. They are paraben free, 100% vegan and no harmful chemicals were included in the ingredients.


They're a little pricey for me.


Like I mentioned earlier, these products deliver what they claim, so if you want to enhance your curls more and bring out the color of your hair, this duo is a great product to try.

Where to buy?

Framesi Color Lover Curl Define Shampoo and Conditioner is available on the Beauty Care Choices website.

I'm also giving away a bottle each of Color Lover Curl Define Shampoo and Conditioner by Framesi to one lucky reader.

Prize: 16.9 oz -bottle each of Framesi Color Lover Curl Define Shampoo and Conditioner
Dates: 9/08-9/20

On Your Body/In Your Body

The skin is the largest organ in the body. The skin’s pores are the gateway for toxins and other substances to leave the body. They are also the gateway by which toxins can enter the body. Anything that is placed on the skin can end up in the body, which means that chemicals in skin care products can affect internal organs. In general, if something can’t be ingested, it shouldn’t be on the body.

Sunscreens are meant to prevent cancer, but the chemicals inside of sunscreen have been linked to numerous problems, such as cancer and reproductive issues. These chemicals are: avobenzone, homosalate, octinoxate, oxybenzone, octisalate and octocrylene. It is best to use a chemical free sunscreen to prevent skin cancer from the sun’s rays and from sunscreens that are filled with chemicals.

Because of an aluminum-based compound and other chemicals, some argue that antiperspirants cause breast cancer. It is precisely because antiperspirants block sweat that they prevent toxins from exiting the body. The lymph nodes become filled with these toxins and can cause breast cancer. It’s good to go without antiperspirant on the weekends, or use an alternative to avoid an antiperspirant altogether. There are natural stones made from mineral salts that assist with preventing odor, but they allow the body to still sweat.

Alcohol denat is an ingredient that is used in many personal products. Alcohol denat is basically the same alcohol that people drink. To discourage people from drinking these products, the alcohol is made to taste bitter. Alcohol denat is extremely drying to the skin. Since it can enter the body through the pores, the body can absorb the alcohol amongst the other chemicals found within these products.

There are a variety of natural products that are not only beneficial for the body, but they perform equally as well as products with chemicals in them. For instance, a combination of baking soda and coconut oil can be used in place of toothpaste. Coconut oil can be used in many ways: as a moisturizer, hair conditioner and makeup remover. Simple Internet searches will reveal safe natural alternatives to many store-bought products that are safe to use on the body and are equally as effective as their counterparts.

Moment changes might be prepared in the method for uniquely printed Minute bedroom wall decals or wall hangings. Made on quality expert evaluation materials, these units come complete, prepared to introduce, and amass in not more than minutes.

Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack Review

I may not have been losing weight, but I make it a point to exercise every day. For a long time, I've been in a plateau, but instead of letting this discourage me, I continued to walk for health purposes. After all, I am not getting any younger. Today's review is about the Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack.

Product Description

My Thoughts

I have not measured my body in a long time because I didn't see the need, since the weight won't budge. I am hoping the this duo will motivate me to get serious in eating less.

I tested the body Fat Test Caliper first. It's made of plastic, but it looks durable. The test caliper slides easily and it's easy to use, too. As expected, I didn't like the numbers I saw in the chart, but I knew it had to go down.

The tape measure is retractable which makes it convenient. I didn't have to roll it up after using and secure with a band so it won't unroll when I keep it. Like the test caliper, the "case" of the measuring tape is made of durable plastic. It comes with a stopper; a slot to hold in place when you reach the end point of the part you are measuring.


If you want to always have your exact measurements, these two will give you the most accurate numbers. It will be easy for you to keep track of your weight and determine body fat. They are easy to use and both are small enough to pack in your purse or gym bag.
