I was so happy to finally get my hands on some quality pruners. In the spring time everything gets warmer and the vegetation around my house gets wild. I have vine like bushes that grow across my side fence, a crazy giant grape vine and tons of bushes growing in the yard. I had some cheap little pruners I got from Big Lots last year which kind of worked for a while and then broke on me. This new pruner from Ezy Pruner is like 1,000 times better.
These pruners are heavy duty. They are made of high carbon steel and cut up to 1" thick wood. I love the little lock on the handle to keep them closed when not in use. They are really comfortable to hold too while my other ones hurt my hand a while after using them. I did take them out to my snow engulfed yard to cut some thick pieces of stick vegetation to test out and they worked perfectly. I can't wait to use them every week in my yard and around the house. The blade already comes well-oiled as you can see. Don't waste your money on crappy products that will just break or not work as well and invest in something a little higher grade. You can usually find better products just by searching real quick on Amazon but when you do impulse buys at your local big box stores it just might not be worth it. #EzyPruners

I'm really impressed with the quality of this pen. This is probably one of the nicest looking stylus pens I have seen around for the price. The ink in the pen writes superbly. This is great for using with drawing apps on my ipad. The microfiber tip is definitely better than the rubber tips I have seen around. I'll let you in on a little secret though and tell you this is the best cat toy ever. The laser pointer is strong and my kitty goes crazy for it. I really feel nice getting to travel around with this pen in my purse and pulling it out when I need it. It just looks so perfect. It's very comfortable to hold as well for long periods of time. I'm very happy with this modern stylish masterpiece. Another plus is the batteries are included in here for the laser pointer. We all know how annoying it is to look for those little batteries. I'm so glad I don't have to get batteries anytime soon for this thing. #KyasiNewYork

I got to try this wonderful bottle of Age defense neck cream from Body Merry. All of Body Merry's products that I have experienced so far has been unique and top notch. Just like the face, the neck is also exposed to many damaging elements, such as harmful ultraviolet rays of sun, wind, dust, rains, and various types of pollutions. The neck is also one of the first places to show the signs of aging. You might have seen a number of people who are struggling with sagging skin, uneven skin tone, and loose skin. If yon want to avoid all these problems, the best way is to use a cream that can correct wrinkles and improve the tone of your skin in the region.
This cream is meant to lift, firm and hydrate your skin. It smooths, moisturizes and improves the suppleness and elasticity of your decollete. There are powerful natural and organic ingredients such as Plant Derived Hyaluronic Acid, Propolis, Royal Jelly, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Oil, Green Tea, Avocado Oil, Licorice, Lemongrass and Rosehip Oil, to name just a few. There are no fragrances or harsh chemicals such as Parabens, Sulphates or Phthalates. It's also not tested on animals which is always a plus to me.
The cream was easily absorbed into my skin and made it feel refreshed. I'm hoping to use this for a long time to see more positive results. This cream should eventually be super effective to lessen double chin or turkey neck. #bodymerry

I was sent all three of these products for my boyfriend to try out on his beard. He doesn't let his facial hair grow too much but its there and it looks great on him. Some people just look better with facial hair and they need to know how to take care of it properly. I have seen some offensive looking beards around. Men just grow it out and then do nothing with it. Keep it trimmed and conditioned..trust me it will look a lot better on you.
I was sent Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner, Beard Oil and Beard Balm to try out. (Well, not me but my boyfriend lol) Check out these totally cute burlap sacks they come in! They even have little gift tags so if you want to give them to some special dude in your life it's all set to go tastefully. I actually saved the little bags to do something crafty with them later probably.
Beard balm is a styling and shaping aid for your facial hair. A good beard balm should moisturize your facial hair, provide hold for styling and make your beard look thicker. Totally avoid beard balms using synthetic sealants like petroleum jelly as they may irritate your skin and damage facial hair. Smooth Viking Beard Balm contains all natural sealants like Mango Butter, Shea Butter, Beeswax, Avocado Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, and Castor Oil. These ingredients are natural, help your beard look thicker and are less likely to irritate your skin.
Beard Conditioner is basically what it's called. It softens your beard especially if you have a problem with dry facial hair. It contains Shea Butter, Mango Butter, and Argan Oil - to keep it growing healthy, strong, and super soft. I find all of these products pretty neutral in scent. I like when things are kept simple and natural. Let the cologne or aftershave do the work of providing a nice scent on a man.
The Beard Oil is another wonderful addition to this manly set. The beard oil is made up of Avocado Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Moroccan Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Pure Essential Oil. It softens your beard and protects yourself against beard dandruff. It keeps your beard hair neat, smooth, soft and tangle free. If you're tired of having an itchy beard this Beard Oil also helps to nourish the skin to aid in stopping the itching commonly associated with beard growth. All these products are Vegan Friendly as well.
You only need a little bit of product for your beard. I probably put a little bit too much but it worked out fine. I loved the way his facial hair felt after application. What's also great is if you have sensitive skin like he does this stuff does not irritate it at all. We're both pretty amazed and satisfied with what these products can accomplish. Now if only this product would turn him into a real viking, right? lol Too exciting...I know. Anyway, if you're interested in purchasing these products you can find the links below.

Lingerie or any delicate piece of clothing in general can be kind of expensive sometimes. That's why I always make sure to keep them safe while I am washing them. I got to try out this lingerie bag from WashGuard. I decided it would be good to wash all my delicate lingerie pieces in here while doing my weekly laundry. Hand washing can be such a cumbersome task and I really do not want to do that for every piece of unmentionables I have. I can open the zipper and stuff my pieces in here. I can then throw them in the washing machine with some of my other things. My lingerie straps won't get tangled up and it keeps everything intact. I'm really satisfied with this product as it saves me time, money and frustration when washing my delicates. Every woman needs one of these bags for their lingerie, panties, bras and pantyhose. #AmazonCart #lingerie #laundry

This stuff is absolutely wonderful! The Lemon essential oil smells like real fresh lemons. The Peppermint essential oil smells like fresh peppermint leaves. I like to drip some on my carpets around the house when I need a clean fresh scent about the air. This is also great to drop into a hot bucket of water for cleaning up the kitchen floor or any hard surfaced floors. It's also great to wipe up the kitchen counter tops with. It leaves the most wonderful smell and gets everything squeaky clean. I have also used this with some fractionated coconut oil for massage with great results. It's not super oily so it absorbs easily and doesn't leave that slick residue. The bottle is large and I know this will last me quite a while. What's also important is that the bottle is dark so the light can't penetrate it to ruin it. I love how easy it is to distribute around with the included dropper top. I totally recommend both these essential oils and hope they come out with many more because I know they will put top quality in them. #essentialoils

Aren't these just the cutest lunch bags ever?! They are made to be lunch bags and they are from a company called Hango.They are bright pink in color with kind of like a chocolate brown carrying strap. They come in 2 sizes together. The quality of the material its made of is very durable.
Let's talk about how I use them. I wanted storage bags for all my beauty products. I have a bunch of eyeshadows, creams and serums. You know what is awesome? If anything spills inside of the bags I can easily clean it up since they are lunch bags and the inside is easy to wipe down.
I was able to fit a bunch of my eye shadows into the smaller bag. I also fit a lot of bigger beauty products in the large bag perfectly. I just can't express how adorable these bags look in my bedroom. They are easy to take on the go if traveling as well.
Another thing that's awesome is it comes in a cute white drawstring bag that's also surprisingly high quality. I used it to store some things and hung it in my closet.

I got to try out this 3-piece ceramic knife set from Ozeri along with a matching knife stand. Both items do come separately though. That makes sense to me I suppose because some people just don't have the counter space for a stand and may not want to pay extra for that. I was really interested in the knife stand because I never saw anything like it before and wanted to experience it.
There are little rubber feet at the bottom of it so it will sit securely wherever you may want to place it. The slots for the knives are adjustable so you can display it however you'd like. I think I like the position above as a permanent display plus it's easy to grab whatever knife I need like this.
The ceramic knives themselves are so stylish. That always seems to be the case with Ozeri items. They always seem to go for that modern look. The handles are really comfortable and easy to hold. I had no problem preparing a salad with these knives as they slice through romaine lettuce, tomatoes and carrots effortlessly. These knives are very good for slicing but I wouldn't replace all your steel knives with these types. If you're dealing with meat that has bones around it I would use a steel knife for that purpose. Ceramic knives are just best for slicing veggies, fruits, soft cuts of meat, and cheeses. Just be careful when handling ceramic knives and know what it can accomplish in the kitchen. #Ozeri #Ceramic #kitchen #knives

If you're looking for arch support then these will do the trick. I got the medium inserts and had to cut it down once since they seem to run a little large and my boyfriend is a size 9. They were a little rough to cut so make sure you have/use large scissors to clip them. They were relatively simple to place into the shoe. These aren't made out of gel but instead something like a hard foam material. It probably took a whole week to break in and get used to. They are very well made but I wish there was a thin cushion like layer on it. This probably would be perfect for someone with fallen arches. #Syono #orthotic #inserts #insoles
