{Product Review} 10" Stone Earth Pan by Ozeri @Ozeriproducts

Hey everyone!

I have another really awesome product to tell you about. I had done another review of a product by Ozeri and was really impressed with the quality of their products so when I was asked if I wanted to review something else I jumped at the chance.

I ended up getting the 10" Stone Earth with 100% PFOA-Free Stone-Derived Non-Stick Coating from Germany.

Isn't it just gorgeous!

I wish I could have taken pictures for myself but my camera has completely died so I haven't gotten to take any but I will later on because I really love this pan.

I ended up cooking a lot of different dishes in this pan to see how it would do and I have to say that it did better than any pan I own. I cooked chicken to golden brown perfection in very little oil, I also cooked beautiful grilled sandwiches and I even placed a single slice of cheese in it to see just how non stick this pan really was and I gotta say the cheese came right out, not one speck was left in the pan. Gotta love that. I also love the weight of this pan. It's not flimsy like a lot of other pans and the weight isn't all in the handle. This pan is light in the handle and heavy in the pan, where the weight should be. It's sits perfect on the stove and I'm not afraid that it's going to tip off the stove.

All in all I have been telling anyone and everyone about this brilliant pan and how wonderful it is. I have even considered buying a few more of them and giving them as Christmas gifts, but SHHHH, don't tell them.

Seriously though, if you are looking for an amazing pan that you don't have to worry about the black bits chipping off into your food or the harmful chemicals leaching into your food then this pan is the one for you and even the other pans that Ozeri sells would be a great fit too.

{Product Review} THERA°PEARL Sports Pack @TheraPearl

Hey everyone!

Okay, so many of you may not know this but I am accident prone. I will hurt myself in some way at least once a day sometimes even more than that. So, every now and again I need an ice pack. Well, usually I make my own out of a plastic zip lock bag and wrap it in a towel or something and this works great for about all of five minutes. It then starts melting and sweating, especially in the heat Alabama has been having, and honestly it turns into a huge mess. So, by the time I actually feel better I have a big sack of dripping water pressed to my boo boo.

Well, I have found the solution for us all in the form of THERA°PEARL!

The Pearl Technology® contained in every THERA°PEARL pack is game changing innovation born of an age old therapy. Crafted by a doctor who knew she could offer her patients something better than a bag of frozen peas, THERA°PEARL was designed with you in mind. Whether chilled or heated, Pearl Technology conveniently holds its temperature for the doctor recommended time of 20 minutes and conforms to your body to deliver the perfect relief from your aches and pains.

Easily pliable when frozen, our Pearl Technology is cold enough to offer targeted ice therapy without sacrificing flexibility. Not stiff, jagged or uncomfortable, chilled THERA°PEARL packs stay smooth and soft on your skin as they conform to deliver soothing relief.

When conveniently heated in a microwave, the Pearl Technology in your THERA°PEARL pack is the perfect solution to relax stiff muscles and encourage blood flow and healing. Delivering consistent heat therapy directly to your desired relief area without a mess, the reusable packs are combination therapy in one convenient product.

At THERA°PEARL, we recognize it’s all about giving people the opportunity to see and interact with our product.  When they do, they love it.  Unlike other products, our high quality clear packaging showcases the product inside, and our poke hole allows people to feel the difference for themselves.  The distinct ornamental appearance of our pearls is our trademark, and it’s how consumers recognize our product in stores.

My Review

I was so excited to get to try this product because I use ice packs for various things and I have to say that I really loved this ice pack. The great thing about this one though is that it doesn't have to be used just as an ice pack but you can also heat it in the microwave and use it as a heating pad. Since I have gotten this pack I have been using it a lot. I have to say that it doesn't stay cold for more than about 30 minutes but it continues to stay cool.

THERA°PEARL actually makes a variety of different products for your hot/cold therapy.

That is just a few products offered by THERA°PEARL, they also make kid packs.

Seriously, how cute are these little guys. I know they are supposed to be for kids but I am totally going to get that cute little frog for myself. :P

Actually, you can use these for different purposes. I bought my mother the neck wrap and she uses it to cool down at work. It's comfortable and light weight. I love using it when I go for walks because it keeps me cool on the hot summer days.

All in all I was very impressed with these packs and I highly recommend them to everyone. They do everything they are supposed to do and I'm not afraid that I am going to get an ice burn from putting it directly on my skin. Like I said before, they are cold but they aren't so cold they could hurt you. They are the perfect temp even right out of the freezer.

{Product Review} @WineWear Gifting wine has never been so #stylish!

Hey everyone, Krystal here and I've got something super fun and cute for you party goers who love to bring wine to a party but can never find the right little gift card to go with it. I know I have been in that predicament.

Now there is a cute card idea called

Yes, you are reading that correctly. Wine Wear are super cute and adorable cards that you put directly on the bottle of wine like a t-shirt. You write your message on the card and then your bottle of wine is ready to be given. It's that simple and did I mention just too freakin cute!

Wine Wear is available in all different occasions ...

These are just a few examples of some of the ones you can get but aren't they just super cute! I know when I saw this product I had to see it for myself and I have to say that everyone loved it. I gave mine away when I went to a cookout  back in July and everyone kept asking me where I had gotten it from.

Here is the one that was sent to me for my review and yes it is as super cute as it looks.

I think these are just super cute and so much more awesome than wrapping the wine up in something or putting it in one of those gift bags. Oh, and god forbid you don't dress it up with anything and just give a plain bottle of wine. I can't do that! No, this has become my new favorite way to give wine. I feel like I can personalize it better for the event or hostess. It's just such a fun product and super simple to use. I totally recommend these to everyone that wants something more than just a plain old card or gift bag to gift wine to someone.

{Product Review} @Woolzies Handmade Dryer Balls

Hey everyone!

Well, I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. Everything is going great for me this week. I have just started a diet plan (about time) and I am doing really great, so far. I have changed the way in which I look at diets and made a plan that I know is right for me and I am really excited to be getting everything on track. Anyway, that is not what I am here to talk about today. Nope, I am here to talk Laundry! Most specifically dryer stuff. I love all of the fabric softeners and dryer sheets because they smell so good but sometimes I don't want all the fragrance. Well, here is a natural product that I think everyone will fall in love with.

Introducing ...

Woolzies are 100% pure New Zealand wool dryer balls that do everything that conventional fabric softeners do plus they reduce drying time by 25%. They are money back guaranteed to last for at least 1,000 loads!

Woolzies have no chemicals at all and are also hypoallergenic so are safe even for people with wool sensitivities.

Unlike even natural dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for 1,000 loads and are therefore extremely eco friendly. So why risk your health and waste your money with regular fabric softeners when you can save time, energy and money with all natural pure Woolzies!

Woolzies bounce around in your dryer, while they naturally separate and create space between your laundry, thereby allowing the hot dryer air to circulate better and subsequently cutting down on drying time by about 25% in large loads and as much as 35-40% in small loads. This of course saves both time and money for you and energy for the environment.

What I Thought

When I was given the chance to review this product I was really excited because I am always looking for a way to dry my clothes faster and these actually worked.

When I got them I was surprised at how large these actually were. I would say they are the size of a large navel orange or a little bigger than a baseball but smaller than a soft ball. Now, one really awesome thing about these are the fact that they are supposed to help reduce drying time and keep everything static free while also getting everything downy soft.


I had hope for these because I knew that wool was great at keeping things dry and holding in heat so I put in my freshly laundered clothes into the dryer poped in about two of these in my towels. About half way through the normal drying time I stopped it to see where we were and boy was I surprised. My towels were almost completely dry. They still needed a few more mins so I turned it back on and let it go for about 15 minutes more and they were completely dry. Another great thing was nothing was stuck together and everything laid loose in the dryer. It was pretty awesome. Also, there were no little fuzzes every where either which I have to say is a plus.

So, would I use this product again? You bet I would because I love the fact it cuts down my drying time and I don't have to add other stuff to my laundry for it to come out soft and static free. Another really awesome thing about these dryer balls is I didn't hear them rolling around in my dryer, not even a peep. Also, if you are wondering if they came out moist or damp they actually came out of the dryer perfectly dry. I was kinda wondering that myself because sometimes you just never know but these were perfectly dry. Plus these are awesome if you are greeny like me and you love eco friendly products then this is the product for you.

I really do love these though and I know anyone who tries these will love them just as much.

I give this product

Still not sure about the Woolzies.
Well, check out the video for them because I promise they are awesome.

Each box of WOOLZIES contains 6 handmade woolen dryer balls. The cost per box is $34.95 with FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the USA including Alaska and Hawaii. They also ship worldwide for $6.95!

{Clothing Review} Corset Top (Regular or Plus Size Corset) by Corset Chick

Hey everyone!

Hope you are having a better week than me. I want to apologize now because I won't be able to post any of my personal pictures right now. My camera has died and nothing I have done has fixed it so I won't be able to post my pictures but as soon as I get a new camera I will come back and post them because seriously this corset is beautiful.

However, I still want to share the absolutely beautiful corset I received from Corset Chick.

Purple Desire Burlesque Corset

Purple Desire Black Lace Burlesque Corset

Comes with matching panties.

Sensual lace up back under wired satin corset with mini ruffle satin corset with satin bow.   

14 1/2" long closed front corset
Hook and eye closure on the side and adjustable laces in the back for a proper fit
Mild sweetheart neckline
Under wire cups for added support
12 light-weight bones through-out

Available in sizes Small, Medium, Large, XL, 2XL, 3/4XL, 5/6Xl, 7/8XL

My Review

First, I want to tell you how gorgeous this corset turned out to be. When it comes to buying clothes online you just never know how something will really be when you finally get it in the mail. Well, I was presently surprised when I opened up the package and saw this beautifully made corset. The details were perfect and everything from the bows to the stitching was beautifully made.

This corset has hook and eye closes all down the left side and then the  ribbon laces on the back which can be changed out, which is what I plan to do for a flashier and more hardier ribbon. While the ribbon that came with the corset is great, I feel it is a bit flimsy and I want something with a little more weight and heft to it. Also, the panties or so called g-string that came with this was just laughable, however if you are buying this corset just for the g-string that comes with it then you are going to be sorely broken up because it is just crap and I honestly will probably throw it out as I will never wear it. However, despite the crappy g-string the quality and beauty of the corset itself completely out weight that tiny infraction.

Overall I was completely happy and thrilled with this corset and while it does fit much smaller than the sizes listed, and it does tell you when ordering how the sizing works, I will be buying others in the future. It is very well made and fits really great. The great thing about corsets or this one at least is I can pair it with my favorite jeans and some heals and go out for a night on the town. I love the versatility of this corset and can't wait until I can wear it out again.

I highly recommend this site not only for normal sized girls but also for my plus sized sisters out there. I know how hard it is to shop for clothes and how much harder it is to find stuff that fits the larger sizes and this site does both and it won't cost you an arm and a leg. The prices on this site are wonderful and perfect. I have not saw any other site that has great quality lingerie for a great price. The corset I am showing here, exactly like the one I received but in a size 8XL was less than $50 dollars. Yeah! Less than $50 dollars.

If you are plus sized, what are some of your favorite places to shop at online? Leave your answer in a comment below.

Check out Corset Chick's Website to see what other types of corsets they have and other spicy sexy stuff.

Ipsy's July "Beach Beauty" Glam Bag Review @ipsy #glambag

Ipsy's July "Beach Beauty" Glam Bag Review

Hey everyone!

I received my glam bag in the mail the other day and I have to say that (and I hate saying this but) I was a little disappointed in this months bag. There were other products that I wish I would have gotten in place of some of these but then again I do like getting things that I wouldn't normally buy for myself. That is just one of the reasons why I love Ipsy so much.

For those of you just stopping in and don't know what I am talking about. Glam Bag is a monthly service by Ipsy where you get a make-up bag full of full sized samples to full sized products from the make-up and beauty world. The best part ... it's only $10 dollars per month and that includes shipping.

What did I get in this month's bag?


California Collection Eyeshadow Sample
BH Cosmetics

This BH Cosmetics makeup palette includes a shade from each of the California Collection palettes: Hollywood, San Francisco, and Malibu.

The San Francisco palette was inspired by the classic California city and style of San Francisco! This new magnetic paper palette brings together a beautiful mix of coppery golds and skyline blues reminiscent of the bridges and bay breeze. With 16 eyeshadows and 4 blushes, the San Francisco palette will transform you into a sophisticated bay-area girl, every time.

The Hollywood palette has you covered with red-carpet reds to limelight greens that are sure to take your look from ordinary to extraordinary! This makeup palette includes 16 eyeshadows and 4 blushes and comes in a compact magnetic paper palette.

Be a beach babe year-round with the Malibu makeup palette. Get that sun-kissed glow with 16 warm and cool-toned eyeshadows and 4 blushes, inspired by the hot summers on the Malibu coast. Select from deep blue and aqua to sandy browns and sunset oranges.

The full size magnetic palettes come with a foldable mirror, making it perfect for when you are on the go!

What I thought...
I was really excited to get this little pallet and I loved the colors that were included. They are super pigmented and have little fallout. I love layering these colors with other ones and they look perfect. I would totally buy other stuff from this company.

Pouty Pop Crayon: Coral Crush
POP Beauty

POP's Pouty Pop Crayon nourishes, treats, and adds that perfectly-plumped pop to lips. These extra-nourishing balms gently bounce onto lips creating a plumped & pillowy pout leaving them with luscious, long-lasting colour with a super-smooth texture. Available in six shades.

What I thought...
I love POP cosmetics but I was not impressed with this coral color. I don't really wear this color but then again I have only tried it once. I am thinking about trying it again so maybe I will have better results. I love the idea of this Crayon though.

Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray
Sexy Hair

A high-performance humidity resistant spray that combats frizz by providing a protective barrier against moisture. Weather Proof promises to leave your hairstyles intact, removing any chance of humidity attacking mis-haps.

What I thought...
I don't use hairspray but for the sake of getting it I did try it out and I have to say that it had great hold and lasted for most of the day. I live in Alabama and the humidity is horrible and this hair spray would be awesome during the wedding season for all of those up do's.

Microdermabrasion Scrub
Derma E

Improve the appearance of your skin with this gentle yet effective Microdermabrasion Scrub, only from derma e®. This formula buffs away dull surface cells, diminshes the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, and absorbs excess skin oils with an exclusive crystal blend including Dead Sea Salt and Volcanic Sand (rich in Silica).

Apply onto wet or dry skin and scrub desired areas in an upward motion. Massage gently but firmly for approximately 3 minutes and rinse. For sensitive skin, less pressure is recommended. Use once or twice weekly.

What I thought...
I wasn't excited when I saw that I was getting this because I am not into facial products like this but I have to say that I was presently surprised with this product. I love the way my skin felt after I used this because it made it soft and glowing. While I wouldn't run out and buy more of this I was glad to get the chance to try it.

Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer

Keep the sun and environment at bay with this SPF 20 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen; a clear, Titanium Dioxide based formula (for those who are Zinc sensitive) made with 98% natural ingredients. Organic Acai Oil - high in Omegas-3/6/9, Vitamins B1/2/3, plus antioxidant Vitamins C and E - delivers a powerful defense against aging.

The phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates, as organic Cucumber Extract calms skin.

This sunscreen is hypoallergenic, paraben-free, ultra sheer, anti-aging, and water resistant for 40 minutes.

What I thought...
I wasn't happy about seeing I was getting this either but I gotta say this works awesome. I am a natural redhead with the freckles and everything and I burn. I don't tan or anything no matter how long I stay out or how often, I just burn. I started using this under my makeup and I have to say that it really works and doesn't feel all greasy. It has even made my skin feel smoother. I will be buying more of this soon.
