Greatest Naps, Vol. 2: The Best of Jammy Jams Review + Giveaway

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

Greatest Naps, Vol. 2: The Best of Jammy Jams



I got to check out this CD full of lullaby songs. I do not have a baby but I was just so intrigued by this I had to listen to what was on here. I was actually given a download code for it so I listened to it through my computer. I looked at the list of all the songs and I pretty much recognized almost all of them. 

1. Get Lucky (originally by Daft Punk)
2. Wrecking Ball (originally by Miley Cyrus)
3. Send Me An Angel (originally by Real Life)
4. Groove is In The Heart (originally by Deee-Lite)
5. Ready Or Not (originally by Fugees)
6. Champagne Supernova (originally by Oasis)
7. We Are Young (originally by Fun.)
8. Hysteria (originally by Def Leppard)
9. Drunken Lullabies (originally by Flogging Molly)
10. I Will Always Love You (in the style of Whitney Houston)

All of these songs are just very very light instrumentals of the original. It's cute because you can put it on for your baby or child to fall asleep. I think this would be very soothing for inside of a car and your child is being a bit cranky. The only thing I would worry about is actually falling asleep myself listening to it as well. 

I think for me personally...I would limit it to the nursery. It's a very cute idea indeed and this isnt the only CD they have out. They have a few different ones. I was actually diggin the LULLABYLOOZA

’90s Alternative Goes Lullaby. I basically heard the first song which is Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden. I love that song. Oh btw, you can listen to the songs on their website to see if you would like it and then buy it. I think thats an awesome way to preview a product. http://www.jammyjams.net/

Truly an innovative CD. I would definitely recommend these lullabies to any new parent. You will recognize a bunch of these songs and your baby will be able to enjoy them as well as a light lullaby to fall asleep peacefully.

CorsetChick.com Corset Review





CorsetChick.com Corset

I got the opportunity to review a cute little corset from CorsetChick.com. I was really excited because I actually have been watching this company for a while and have seen a bunch of people with them and really wanted one to check out for myself. I received this black and pink accented one.I'm going to tell you the price of this one right now is only $18 which is super cheap! You can look at it directly right here. http://www.corsetchick.com/servlet/the-302/Sexy-corset%2C-sexy-corsets%2C/Detail
Let me show you the many pictures I took of it and what I think about it first.



Here's the tag on it. It came nicely packaged. 
Here you can see what the size and fabric material is. Now, I measured myself with a plastic measure tap because I didn't have a tailor tape around and that is where the mess up came. I was told these run a little small so they took my bad measurements and sent me a large. I don't wear a large in any of my clothing though. I rarely am even a size medium but I think a size medium in this would have been perfect. I probably could have even squeezed into a small. I think the purpose of a corset is to be very form fitting and push up the ladies. I'll get more into that in a bit with pictures.
Here it is laid out flat on my bed to show you. Bear with the bad Ipod pictures please. It came with a black silky type material thong. I don't think I would fit into that large so I am not going to try it on. It looks huge and would look silly on me lol. Not like I can show that here anyway. Once again, I think a medium or a small would have been nice. (I could have asked for an exchange to a smaller size but I don't like to be a pest so I didn't but if this happens to you for sure get an exchange in. But the point of this review is so you can gauge the right size for yourself!)



This picture right here will reflect the exact color of the corset. My lighting really determines the shot I get so the others may look slightly different. There is a black zipper that goes down the side and i wanted to point that out because I did not notice it the first time i tried it on and i actually de-laced the back to get it on. The zipper makes it a million times easier to slip this thing on and its so camouflaged no one will notice. 
 Hard to see but here is the inside. It is very soft and comfortable on your bare skin. 

Here you can see how much space there is. It's not supposed to be that big on you. Corsets are always supposed to be fitted to your body. 


As you can see I have to hold it up on me because it falls down even with all the ribbon in the back tightened as much as possible. It's really a shame because I loved it. It really does look cute. It just needed to be a bit smaller but the curvature of the corset is perfect. I can't fill the cups either they are just too big for me lol.

Terrible picture sorry but there it is on me. It actually doesnt look bad in the picture but its making me look bigger than I am and it does fall down a bit.



You can wear corsets out with a cute shirt underneath and go outside with it on for the daring.


This was a fun and exciting review. I really think the quality of the corset is top notch. For the price you can't beat it. Just remember to go up a size for yourself unless you are truly really petite. I'm 5'3 and 115lbs so if you are around near my body type i would suggest getting a Medium. Here's the link to the same corset and its only $18. http://www.corsetchick.com/servlet/the-302/Sexy-corset%2C-sexy-corsets%2C/Detail

They have a ton of different affordable corset styles so check out their main site. http://www.corsetchick.com

Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan

Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free

I got the opportunity to try out this cute little pan by Ozeri. I am also the proud owner of their other Green Earth pan. A little off topic from this one ...I have been using their other pan for quite some time now and I love it. It's just so convenient to cook with. It's really easy to clean up after and the food does not burn.

Check that out. It's called Greblon ceramic - an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100% PTFE and PFOA free (no heavy metals or chemicals). It's very unique indeed and you won't see this around much. Before I got this pan I never saw anything like this honeycomb type pattern in a pan. I think it actually helps the food stay abroad so it doesn't stick down onto a flat surface. The cooking surface delivers  non-stick performance without releasing harmful fumes or toxins at high temperatures. It has a  scratch-resistant ceramic coating that is super easy to clean and made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals.


A green pan that is green. I actually love the color of these pans. I'm so tired of boring black or silver pans so it's a breath of fresh air in my kitchen. It would be cool if they made other fresh pops of color though for their line. I think people like Red , orange and turquoise in their kitchen nowadays. I'm content with it!
This pan is a little deeper than my other one but that's perfect because I want to use this as a bean pan. I'm spanish and I am always cooking rice and beans for the family for dinner. I HATE making beans sometimes though because it will stick to the pan on the sides and bottom after a while. I always simmer my beans at low temperature. Also, cleaning up after dinner is a total nightmare.

Here's my setup for cooking dinner tonight. Look at how wonderful and shiny my new Ozeri pan is! The metal pan behind it is usually the type I would use for my beans but a smaller one. The sticking is terrible on that. I will just be using it to make white rice ( boil in a bag). Oh and making rice dishes in an Ozeri is a dream. I have made so many rice sides which had to simmer and no sticking ..it just turns out so wonderful.
These are the porkchops I made in my bigger Ozeri pan. All I did was cook it in some butter and red wine. Look at the nice browning action that happens with it. These cook up so quickly as well. The pan gets heated without burning.

Here's the beans I made for dinner. It cooked perfectly! The bean sauce did not stick to the sides or bottom. Dinner was fantastic and cleanup after was so easy. I did not take pictures of my cleanup but basically all I do is put a little bit of water in them and wipe it down with a paper towel into the garbage. Take it to the sink and give it a little rinse with the sponge. It's soooo much easier to clean up now. I was so happy I didn't have to scrub stuck on sauce , oil or butter. I just want to replace all my pans with Ozeri pans because it makes life easier.

You can buy the little Ozeri pan here through their Amazon page for $22.18: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005470CB6

It's a great deal considering it will make things easier for you in the kitchen...plus its about the same price as other pans that cant do the same thing. For half this price you can get some cheap pan but I guarantee you it will not perform like this one and you will end up hating it after a while. This pan is sturdy and looks beautiful.

Check out their main Amazon page. They have tons of high end products that you will love at affordable prices. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_sr_kitchen?ie=UTF8&field-brandtextbin=Ozeri&node=284507

They also have a FaceBook page which you can check out here: https://www.facebook.com/OzeriProducts


I'll be your fan for life, thank you Ozeri for making such an innovative product.

Energems


Energems - Great Tasting Energy

I got the chance to try out Energems. I actually caught a free sample of their peanut butter earlier through their sample giveaway before. I'm always looking for an alternative to energy drinks. I really do enjoy energy drinks but they are so expensive and really aren't that convenient. 

I have never seen little candies like this before. This is so innovative. So I figured let me try these out because I always feel so tired. I am a terrible sleeper and take melatonin to bed almost every night and it leaves me feeling so groggy the next day. These are just perfect! They are about the size of Mentos but give you an M&M feel when you bite into them. 


So I tried the red ones and left the peanut butter for last because I tried those already before. The chocolate taste is decent. You just have to remember this isn't really candy for you to enjoy but something you can easily snack on so you dont have to chug a whole energy drink. I thought these overall were pretty good. 


I then tried these chocolate mint ones. Oh My GOD, I am in love with this one. These are just perfection. I truly enjoyed the taste. It's almost like a thin mint cookie. How can an energy thingy taste so good?! I don't know how they did it but this is just the tops. I personally give you the thumbs of approval to try these out first if you ever decide to buy these. 

 Alright...so lets talk about the peanut butter ones. They sound like they would taste like reese's pieces. I am so sorry Energems but this one does not taste good at all to me. It is just so bitter and you can taste it. I could not stomach them. I think they need to work on making this one less bitter and more chocolate or more peanut buttery or something. 


All in all I think I like how convenient these little guys are. I can just stick these boxes right in my purse and have them on the go when i need them.  

Here is a $1.00 off coupon you can use to purchase it.

Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder By KissMe Organics



I got a chance to try out this organic matcha green tea by KissMe Organics. I have never heard of this type of product before so I wanted to check it out further. As you can see my cat Rusty wanted to check it out as well. He was very attracted to the smell. ( don't let your pets eat this stuff. x__x)



 As soon as you open it you can really smell the green tea. It is very powerful. Green tea has many benefits all in itself. It will give you lots of energy and weight loss benefits. I do not really enjoy drinking tea at all so I will not be ingesting this. I did take a dab of it on my pinky. I couldn't really stomach it lol. BUT! That does not mean it's bad...I just don't have a taste for green tea much.





I wanted to use this on my skin. I did some research and found out Matcha green tea powder has 15 times more antioxidants than steeped tea and is easy to apply. I took a little bit into a cup and added some water to it to form a paste. I wanted to use this on my dry skin patches but if you have sun burn spots then this would be good to use as well. I left it on for about 10 minutes and then rinsed it off in the shower. I can see a difference in my skin. You will see a difference in about 2 weeks.


You want to know another neat use for this? Skin painting! For all you orc cosplayers out there this would be perfect. This stuff leaves a nice green hue to your skin and its natural. Body paint is so expensive and has chemicals all over it. You can use this stuff with a little bit of coconut oil and lotion and it goes right on and stays on.

I love this for its healing properties the most. Give this tea powder a  try and you wont be disappointed.

You can buy the same bag of matcha green tea powder right here on Amazon : http://www.amazon.com/Matcha-Green-Tea-Powder-Antioxidant/dp/B00DDT116M

Immortal Sleep Herbal sleeping pills



ImmortalSleep

 I got the chance to try out  these 100% all natural herbal sleeping pills from http://www.immortalherbs.com/product/immortal-sleep/. I always just have the worst time trying to fall asleep without sleeping aids. I have been a big melatonin user but I really hate how it pushes me to sleep longer and makes me still feel groggy when I wake up in the mornings. 

I was really excited to try this right away. I was opening the bag and was hoping the pill wouldn't be gigantic because I have trouble swallowing pills. If they are gel caps then all the better. Success! They were gel caps. 
It says to take 2-3 an hour before bedtime. I decided to take 3 because I feel like I need more of whatever I take for it to work. Even with melatonin I would need to take 2 instead of the 1 it says to take. Right when I put it in my mouth I could taste something familiar. I swear it tasted like Sunflower seeds. I looked behind the packaging to see if there was sunflower oil somewhere in this stuff but there wasn't. It could possibly have been the gel cap itself. I think it was a wonderful thing to just have it taste like something I was comfortable with. 

I fell asleep fairly quickly. I couldn't believe how refreshed I felt in the morning. I had no drag and felt like I actually wanted to get up and out of bed. I felt so energetic. I did not wake up once during the night which is like a nightly ritual for me to have to go to the bathroom. It was just such a pleasant experience. 

You can get a bottle of immortalSleep for yourself here . http://www.immortalherbs.com/product/immortal-sleep/

They sell a whole bunch of other products on their main page which I am sure are all high quality products. They seem like a company that cares about their products and their packaging is top notch. They are fast shippers as well.

 You can find them on twitter here: https://twitter.com/ImmortalHerbs

You can also find them on FaceBook here: https://www.facebook.com/ImmortalHerbs


I totally recommend them for all your all natural herbal solutions.

Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale



Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale


I got the chance to try out this precision digital bathroom scale by Ozeri. They are a great company. I actually got to try out their ceramic frying pan a little bit ago which is amazing as well. I was definitely surprised by how sleek and modern it looked. I have never seen such an eye pleasing digital scale before.




You can see its made out of tempered glass. 


You can see how thin it is. It's really so lightweight and durable.





You can see the feet of the scale here. It has rubber feet which keep it in place wherever you wish to place it. You do have to make sure its on a flat stable surface though. You can't put this on carpet or it won't work properly. I'm actually showing it in my bathroom which is where I decided to keep it. You also have to be aware its not a good idea to keep it in a place which has a bunch of moisture like a bathroom but mine is aired out properly and not next to the shower. You also shouldn't store it where there are chemicals laying around because that can mess it up too.

The scale runs on a small lithium battery which is included with it. There is no on or off button you just step onto the scale and let it go to work. When you are done just step off and it turns itself off. I did not like the closing plastic piece that goes over the battery because i had to fumble with it for a few minutes to get it on properly. There is also a small button above the battery where you can convert the weight units to British stones or kilograms if you prefer.

Here you can see the numbers show up nice and clear. I really don't feel happy weighing almost 120 UGH but i guess its accurate. I have to stop snacking so much lol. I am almost 5'4 but still ...I would be happy if i can turn that into 115 at least. That's a different story though.

I really am impressed by this scale. It's easy to use and lightweight to truck around the house if need be. At only $14.95 on Amazon you can buy one for yourself too. I think the price is really good for such a cute looking scale.

Actually the first shot of my cat on it. You can weigh your pets probably but I would make sure they are pets that can keep still on it ...I don't know how well it would handle a big dog's nails crashing about on it. It's very helpful though.

Here's the link to the scale to purchase through Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CWM1QIY



Here's another one they sell in black. I personally really like the look of this one. It is ...perfect! If this suits your style you can buy it as well though here. http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-ZB15-Precision-Bathroom-Activation/dp/B005URI2VW/ref=pd_sim_sbs_hg_5

This one is a little more expensive at $28.95 but its really flawless and modern looking. Just check them out they have a bunch of cool gadgets for home use.
