So I decided to try out raw activated charcoal powder for many different things. Right now I could tell you that my favorite use was for teeth whitening. Some people use this for their skin and I'm still trying to think of the best way to use it for my underarms. I need to mix it with some honey to form a paste I can let sit. It's supposed to lighten up dark underarm but I wanted to see if I could possibly detox my underarm altogether to peel back stench. I will write more on that subject later on when I get to do it but for now I did try teeth brushing.
This particular pack of charcoal powder is triple bagged. This stuff can get messy so please be aware. This might also stain things. I recommend removing any hand towels nearby.
I probably used a little bit too much because it says to sprinkle it on the brush. I just let the bristles get moist and dipped it gently into the bag itself. You can put some charcoal powder in a jar just for this use.
I didn't think to take a before picture but I did an after shot. I honestly saw my teeth looking a little whiter right after just one use of this process. I'm sure if you used it a few times a week and you have bad yellowing of the teeth you will notice a dramatic difference. This is way easier than teeth whitening strips or toothpaste for sure. This is also cheaper than whitening strips in the long run plus you can use it for multiple things. #MoodyZookAC

I wish I could find more information for myself when I first started fostering cats and dogs. I actually made an in depth video explaining everything. Check out my video on my Youtube channel below. It's about 13 minutes long but worth it if you are seriously considering fostering animals. Placement is EVERYTHING when it comes to animals. Plan ahead and everything will go smoothly for you and your foster cat /dog.
Also, if you are fostering a bigger dog then I do recommend having a large crate instead of a pen like this especially if they have a background of chewing or being rambunctious. This playpen only works if the animal is relatively calm or smaller.
I also want to take the time to thank Litter Genie for providing a Litter Genie pail system for my foster animals. It has been quite helpful. If you don't know what the Litter Genie is I shortly explain it in my video above. Feel free to view the photos below to see how I put it together.
A helpful tip is to pull the bag down a bunch so you don't have to cut it often. Believe me, I have about 3 days worth of waste from 1 adult cat and 5 kittens with no poo/pee smell whatsoever and I still haven't cut it off. I'll probably cut it off tomorrow and roll it down again.
It doesn't take up much space at all and I just have it standing up by the litter box. The kitties don't even touch it. I really like the black and grey neutral design it has on it now. I had the old one before and this one is definitely better looking for my preferences. (I remember the old one used to be plain white)
Thanks Litter Genie!

The Demon's Prison is Fading!!
Hey all you table top gamers out there! I thought I would share my most recent purchase off Amazon just to show you what comes in this pack. I got the Treaty of Champions expansion. I kind of wish I would have posted all the sets I got just to give people a little bit of eye candy on what comes inside the set. You see, Fantasy Flight on Amazon thought it would be cool to just put the stock photo of the box and nothing else. I just thought it was kind of ridiculous they didn't show the contents. I already posted pictures for those possible customers to view and so I will do so here just in case anyone decides to try and google it up. Ya'll can thank me mentally. :D

I usually don't travel much by air but I do often have cat and dog transports since I foster. It's always nice to have something light and airy for my car. My eyes are always peeled just in case I see an animal in need. Sometimes I find kittens outside and sometimes I just have to travel out to the vet.
Introducing the Fur Caddy! This lovely little bag can haul your small pet around comfortably. I tested this out with my foster kittens. They all took to it and loved laying in there. The bag itself is quite attractive (I'm partial to grey). The straps were sturdy and the bottom of it has nice grips.
I think I will be putting this in the back of my car for animal emergencies. Thanks to the Fur Caddy people for sending me out one for my fosters! Awesome company :}

Thanks to VOGUE Jewelry for the beautiful necklace. It's chunky but comfortable to wear and gives a nice pop of color to any outfit. I need to get dressed up more often to show it off now that it's getting nicer out. This necklace will look nice with Spring dresses. This same necklace comes in a silvery metal look but I think I love this one better.

So I have been using this conditioner to try it out and in short I did love it. I DID find some negatives but nothing too bad. This conditioner is quite natural so it's different. There isn't a big lather which some people may not like. My hair smelled fantastic and looked amazing even just using it for one day. I did not use any shampoo affiliated with it though so who knows if that affected it. I have been using it with my Finesse shampoo if you're curious. The combo has worked fantastically. This conditioner bottle is not the biggest and costs $12 but might be worth it for someone looking to restore their hair back to a healthy state. My hair looks good most of the time no matter what for now. I don't even brush my hair as you can see...I just let it do what it wants. In short, I loved the conditioner and its beautiful Jasmine scent. It made my hair feel wonderful.

I was genuinely excited when I opened this book up. I have always been into the paranormal and life after death theories. This book goes into detail about many well known accounts of it. You will never have a dull moment as you go into every single elaborate detail of each story. The author lays it out just how it should be laid out. The author of course has their own thoughts which come about here and there but leaves room for you to ponder everything yourself which I love. I honestly have not finished the whole way through but i can tell you that I totally love everything that I have encountered thus far. I'm almost done with the book fair to say that I got a good grasp of it. There are a few photos in there as well which is nice to see. If you're into weird paranormal theories then I say go for it!

So I usually don't do acrylic paintings because I'm not that talented with paints. I only use acrylics for painting figurines but I thought it would be best to show off the paints through an actual painting. I could slap myself for ruining a good pencil drawing but for the sake of reviewing I did it. It's not THAT terrible but you know I tried my best.
These are a nice set of acrylics from Art Treasures which I got on Amazon for reviewing purposes. The paints are pretty smooth and the colors are nice. They also dried relatively quickly once on the canvas.
For the price of $14 for everything you are getting I think its a pretty awesome deal. You honestly can't find stuff this cheap locally at a big box store with the same quality.

I pretty much know Finesse is one of my favorite shampoo brands because I have used it before but not this version of it. Does shampoo ever get old? I actually used a "vintage" version my boyfriend's mother gave to me to use. It must have been sitting in her shampoo/conditoner collection for years but I used it anyway. It left my hair smelling good and feeling fabulous! This stuff is the best!
Anyway, so I told myself I totally wanted to try out this new stuff from Finesse. Strengthen and Restore my hair? YES! I don't think I quite need it because my hair already is crazy and looks pretty fabulous. I think it's because I don't color or do much at all to it. It's been stress free all my life.
I used this shampoo and conditioner for about 5 days straight now. The photo collage at the top shows my gorgeous hair before using it. Sometimes my hair really looks so shiny and healthy. I took pictures today showing how my hair looks after using it for 5 days. I will need to finish up this whole bottle and completely gauge it but it still looks fantabulous as always. Just to let you guys know I do not brush my hair at all. I just let my hair do what it wants. Sometimes I'll take a flat iron to straighten it if I am going somewhere nice or fancy which is almost never. This is it! This is how my hair always looks. As you can see, my hair is wild and has a mind of its own.
I'm in love with Finesse and I always will be. They are so simple and your hair doesn't feel weighed down. My hair dries faster using this shampoo and conditioner set than any other brand. I just adore the light scent on it. It just reminds me of a beautiful rainy day in warm Spring weather. My hair feels beautiful so give it a try for sure. #finessehaircare

I've been using this scale for a week now and have had no problems with it. The scale comes with batteries so you don't have to worry about that. The design is beautiful and lays on the floor very easily. The scale doesn't take up much space either. I did have to weigh myself about 3 times to make sure it was working properly. After that first point, it has been very accurate for me. The fat caliper measure also is handy and was easy to use though it was a bit tough for me to find a chart online to check. The body tape is cool but I wish it was easier to roll the tape back inside after use. It kind of just hangs out for me. Still, it's nice to have those two extras with the scale. Make sure when you use a scale that it's on a flat surface and not on a carpet or the readings might be off.

For when your room starts to smell like a mini barn this is going to be your best friend lol. I have reviewed so many diffusers and this is the prettiest one I have seen thus far. The shape and wood grain look reminds me of a fancy spa decor piece. It's also the easiest one to use because the top just removes so smoothly. You add the water in and a few drops of your fave essential oil. (I used lavender) You then turn it on and you can set a timer or just leave it on until it runs out. It has a few different LED colors but my fave one is always green. Love this company for giving me the opp to try this out since I really needed it for my space. Thanks #REIDEA

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share my new kitchen items. I love working with fresh ingredients so a mortar and pestle is a must in my kitchen. I already had a larger one but I needed a smaller one to fit on my counter tops. It's also better for smaller batches of things that I am making. I got it from a company called Tudimo on Amazon and I also decided to get this apple corer and watermelon slicer as well. They featured red accents so I was all over it. I don't eat a whole bunch of watermelon but I think this would be awesome for cakes and pies. It has multi-function and it's sturdy as heck. I also make infused water so the corer will be put to use. I also had a crappy little apple corer but it was apart of a large set and when things are apart of sets sometimes they lack quality. I'm really happy with this purchase so if this is something you need I hope I helped!
