I'm actually happy with the finished result I got with my kit. It wasn't whipped high like it was supposed to be but it does seem to have the consistency of a good thick body butter lotion. You have everything you need in here minus a couple of things. The oil that's provided in this kit is lavender so if you aren't fond of that you can easily replace with your own essential oils. I decided to use Peppermint oil in mine.
I got a pot of water and put it on low boil. I then spooned out the shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil into a glass mason jar. I stood up the jar in the pot of water to let it boil slowly into a yellow liquid. I put it in the fridge for 1 hour. I then took it out to whip it but I couldn't do it for the whole 10 minutes plus I had to go out and run some errands. That's the thing with this is you need plenty of time to do this and I should have been smarter about that aspect. When I got back from errands the body butter was solidified from lack of whipping. I had to boil it down again to make it semi solid for whipping again. The consistency just wasn't the same so my mistake. In the end, I got a smooth and creamy body butter that I am still happy with.
I would recommend holding onto the containers as a measuring device for future batches you can make with your own ingredients. It's a wonderful set and the containers are really cute. I do think the price is a bit much for what you get but I honestly think it's a good measuring investment for future body butter making on your own. It was fun to do but very much taxing. I think the end product made me proud that I made it. Homemade stuff is quite lovely. #diybodybutterkit

I totally recommend mixing this stuff in with wet food if possible. You can mix a little bit with water to see if your cat will go for it but there might be some reluctance. I put some on the top and let them sniff it. They weren't interested in it at all so that's why you need to mix it. I particularly wanted this for my FIV positive black cat. She seems a little sluggish nowadays so I'm hoping with lots of time this will help her feel more energetic and comfortable. She has had no negative reaction to this so far and I am glad to at least see her being more social with the other cats.

For a simple keyboard, the Azio Prism is fantastic. One thing that I love about this keyboard is the clear fact that it's wired. I personally prefer wired over wireless due to the reaction times of the keystrokes and the reliability while gaming. You have 8 color modes that you can use which are prism rainbow, vivid magenta, icy blue, cobalt blue, candy pink, crimson red, blossom orange and emerald green. If you want to change your color you just press the light bulb looking key above the Home key. I think my favorite color of them all and the one I prefer to use is cobalt blue. It also matches up with my mouse keys which is awesome. There is a small difference in the way the lighting looks in the day time opposed to night time darkness. You will get a bolder and more pronounced lighting effect at night which is what you want anyway. One thing straight away I can feel is the smooth typing. The keys almost feel like they are laying atop a soft mattress. It's really quiet to use. All the keys work perfectly and I feel like this keyboard is very comfortable for me to use. Aesthetics within simplicity makes this keyboard pretty awesome in my book.

This holiday themed decorative set is so cute! Everything fit on and around my toilet as it should. I think the top piece is for a square tissue box but you could use it for a large bottle of hand lotion. Each piece seems like it's very well made and the felt material didn't feel too thin or cheap. This is great if you have kids because they will enjoy it very much. Because the toilet cover hits the back part of the top seat cover I would definitely wash this in between if you can because it might get yucky back there. I can't wait to use this in December. #christmas

You really just won't be disappointed with what you get in your pokemon card pack. First of all, the protective sleeves have just been wonderful to use with my cards. I just wish I could have a ton more for them all. Anyway, so the 30 cards came as advertised along with 10 energy cards plus their 3 token cards. All the cards were in excellent condition. I was very happy to see an EX card in here which was Chandelure. There was also a reverse holo Houndoom, Shuppet, Litwick (x2), Golett and Golurk. There was a holo Gourgeist(x2) and Chandelure (x2). The rest were regular cards such as Pumpkaboo (x4), Spiritomb (x2), Shuppet, Golett, Drifblim, Litwick (x2), Muk, Sableye (x3), Banette, Yamask, Dusclops and Phantump. I will note that there was quite a few repeats but my son is always trading cards with friends so that's a plus for him. It's a fantastic set of cards and the rares certainly made it worth it enough. #GoldenGroundhogPokemonLots

They were a super tight fit but I was able to get these cute tights on without breaking them. I do wish they would have went on a little easier but it is what it is. I have super thick thighs and once it got to the bottom of my thigh it was work from there. These tights are totally worth it though because they are absolutely adorable. For sizing reference, I am 5'3" and 135 lbs with a curvy body. I honestly do not recommend getting these if you have really thick thighs because you won't be able to pull them up all the way. I think they are mid-range when it comes to thickness of material. These are great for Fall and Spring time in four seasonal climate areas. I just really love the look of thigh highs without the annoyance of having to constantly pull them up. Awesome! #TattooLeggings

I have tried so many different sleeping pills and I can honestly say these are the best ones aside from prescription strength stuff. They are really easy to swallow and don't leave any bad taste in my mouth. I am able to fall asleep fairly quickly (About 20 minutes from taking them) and stay asleep through the night. I get about 7 hours of sleep on these pills and wake up feeling refreshed. I get no grogginess and just feel so great. I'm beyond happy with these pills. #Somnis

So I decided to try out this awesome 45 piece set with a simple drawing and mixed media effects. I had to keep in mind that I am an artist (somewhat) and have worked with really high end stuff before. I started out with the sketching pencils and found that they worked really well. I was able to make my drawing without the lead breaking or chipping. I decided to start coloring in with the color pencils. They were surprisingly very good. I got some nice shading and coloring done with them. The crayons which I sparingly used were decent but nothing super special. The paint was also nicely pigmented but the brush was not amazing to me. I like the fact that it comes with sharpeners to work with.I will have to say that in the end this is a great simple starting set for budding artists. I wanted this for my 10 and 11 year old to use for school stuff but I tried it out myself just to see. You really can't go wrong for the price and everything included in here. I will say that the pencils make it super worth it alone and work amazingly. I also love the little carrying case to keep everything organized nicely. #usartsupply

200 Assorted YuGiOh Card Lot! 15 Rares & 15 Holos & Bonus YuGiOh Collector's Tin, Booster Pack & Playmat
This set is so awesome! I got this for my 10 year old son who loves playing with all types of trading cards with his friends. The tin is great because he can keep everything stored away safely in there. My play mat featured Joey Wheeler from the series. I thought the quality of the mat was really nice and durable. So my son got such an assortment of cards and a brand new pack to open. I honestly don't know much about the rares but I did recognize the Blue-Eyes White Dragon just from anime memory. It was pretty cool he got one of those. This is a good set to go with just for collecting the cards to create playable decks. I'll list some of the aesthetically notable cards in this pack.
- Brain Crusher, Penguin Soldier, Firewing Pegasus, B.E.S. Tetran, Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Twin-Headed Behemoth,Cyber Prima, IL Blud, Gem-Knight Tourmaline, Cyber Esper, Satellarknight Procyon and Number S39: Utopia Prime(came from my new pack opening)
He's very happy with this large set of cards. #GoldenGroundhogYGOLots

These figurines are so awesome! Most of these are from the Marvel and DC Universe. You will need the actual game board and pieces to play but this is a great way to gather heroes you may not have or need. They are quite varied in can be grouped to specific backgrounds such as Avengers or X-men. There are many tutorials online to learn how to play the game if you don't know. It's kind of like a fantasy tabletop game but with comic book characters instead.
I did get two repeats which was Rictor, Starboy and Piledriver ( 2 different poses) . Nikki came with two missing arms and Eddie Brock came without a head. Makes for interesting play I suppose lol. Everybody else was in great playing condition. I think I was most excited for getting Batman in my pack which is probably my favorite comic book character.
List of characters I got in my bag
Chameleon Girl, Diamondback, Lyra, Heatwave, Ladytron, Starboy, Piledriver (x2), Purifier, Godiva, Humanoid, Vulture, Black Canary, Anaconda, Wonderman, Batman, Starboy (x2), Antman, Sensor Girl, Shocker, Spiderwoman, Hammerhead, Super-skrull, Cannonball, Jolt, Iron Fist, Polar Boy, Thunderstrike, Hope Taya, Scientist Supreme, El Guacho, Luke Cage, Shatterstar, Lava man, Rictor (x2), Psylocke, Regal Skymage, Shocker, Korvus, Witchblade, Caliban, Kid Omega, Sun Boy, Lex Luthor, Pete Wisdom, Northstar, Hollywood, Trickster, Human Bomb, Max Fury, Animus, Max Mercury, Knockout, Deathbird, Jinku, Crossbones and Layla Miller
Totally a great price to get a bunch of randoms since they can cost $1.50+ for just one. I will be holding onto mine just for display purposes since they are so neat to look at and admire. #GoldenGroundhogHeroclixLots
