White Demon Contact Lenses from Spooky Eyes Review

So Halloween is about a month away. Are you ready? I absolutely love Halloween. Always have.  I remember dressing up as all kinds of different things as a kid and have continued doing it as an adult. One thing I wasn't able to do as a kid was wear contact lenses. A simple pair of the right contacts can go a long way and make your costume look way better! They can make you stand out at any party you go to! Let me tell you about the White Demon lenses that I just tried from Spooky Eyes. They are white lenses with a jagged red outline. Product Details Base Curve: 8.6 Size: 14.5 mm Water Content: 42% FDA Approved Power: Plano/Cosmetic Lenses with no vision correction ( Used this in a previous post but with diff lenses from SpookyEyes. This look is the Wicked Fairy) (Witch/Ghoul/Possessed?) (Leopard) (Sugar Skull) My Thoughts These lenses are some of the coolest lenses that I've ever owned. They can be worn with so many different costume

Natural Shine Violet Lenses Spooky Eyes Review

With Halloween only being a few weeks away, I have been trying out a whole range of costumes. I love Halloween with a passion. I have so much fun dressing up and pretending to be someone or something I'm not, at least for the night.  Okay, so I can throw together an outfit for Halloween but my most favorite thing to use as part of my costume are unique contact lenses. The lenses that I am going to share with you, my wonderful readers, today, are  Violet contact lenses from SpookyEyes. (In daylight) (Camera Flash) Product Description Base curve: 8.6  Size: 14.2 mm Water Content: 42% FDA Approved Soft Lenses Power: Plano, cosmetic lenses/don't provide vision correction (Pop Art Lichenstein Comic Book Character) (Dark Fairy or Alien) My Thoughts These lenses are ultra comfortable, which is one of the most important things that I look for in soft contact lenses. I need them to be, especially if I am wearing them for sev

Protect Those Sheets and Pillows Too!

Did you just read my post about the Americare Vinyl Mattress Protector that I've been using? Well, I was also given a pillow protector and sheet protector as well. I added those onto my son's bed too.      Priva Ultra Plus Sheet Protector So, yes, I know I covered up the mattress with a mattress protector, but why not have extra protection on his sheet too? This sheet protector works well on my son's bed. It covers up most of his twin mattress, which is perfect.  You can see the thick layer of protection that this sheet protector provides. Works very well so that in case he has an accident it shouldn't soak past the protector. I love that. I also laid on it, just to see if it would cause any sort of discomfort, but no. I kind of like the really slight extra thickness it adds to the bed.  Perfect for elderly beds, kids beds, cribs, and even pet bedding.    Zip & Block Pillow Encasing Now this was something that I was very i

Protect Your Mattress in Multiple Ways With a Vinyl Mattress Protector

Ever spill something on your bed and end up ruining your mattress? Or maybe you have a little one who had an accident in their bed in the middle of the night? Not fun when you have to not only remove everything and wash it, but then you also have to scrub that mattress and it might get destroyed in the process or have a permanent stain... I have a son who's still pretty young, and let's just say both of these incidents have occurred in his very own bed.  His bed is now covered with a Vinyl Mattress Protector from Americare. Company Product Description Makes cleaning up accidents and spills easier Has a vinyl cover that allows you to wipe off the mess Fits snugly around mattress Bed bug and dust mite protection Available in hospital bed size, twin, full, queen, and king My Thoughts I washed it before using and then applied it onto my son's twin bed. It really does fit snugly around his mattress, as you can see in my photo above.  I

Want to keep it from getting boring?  I'm not 100 percent vegetarian, but I do prefer to eat vegetarian. I am a veggie-holic by the way... My Thoughts on This Cook Book I found some wonderfully creative recipes inside of this book. Practically every recipe in the book sounds so good to me.

Instanatural Argan Oil Hair Mask Review

When I hear the words, Argan Oil, I always get thrilled about it because over the past few months I've had the greatest results from it, specifically when used on my hair. The most recent Argan Oil product that I started using was InstaNatural's Argan Oil Hair Mask . Company's Product Description Contains natural and organic ingredients- Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin B5, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, and more Repairs damaged hair Nourishes and hydrates hair Transform limp/lifeless hair in as little as 15 mins Get soft and shiny strands Protects and strengthens hair, even if you use heat products on it My Thoughts This hair mask comes in a great big jar, which made me really happy. I opened it and it smells so nice--another thing that made me really happy. I hate hair masks that don't have a great fragrance, because who's going to want to get close to me if I have gross smelling hair? I put this mask on my shampooed and

Adovia Sulfur Soap With Dead Sea Salt Review

Adovia soaps are always products that I work into my regular routine because they all seem to work so well. I mainly think this is due to the fact that all of the products that I have tried by Adovia have Dead Sea Salt minerals worked into their formulas. Dead Sea Salt is so beneficial for your skin! I tried Adovia Sulfur Soap With Dead Sea Salt for a few weeks to see if my skin would love it. Company's Product Description Highly enriched with sulfur and minerals from the Dead Sea Has antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties Balances your skin's natural moisturizing levels with Dead Sea Minerals, Olive Oil, and Aloe Vera extracts Thoroughly cleanses your face and body, leaving it smooth and gentle 3% Sulfur content My Thoughts Don't let the name of the soap scare you away from trying it! This specific sulfur soap may sound like something that would smell strong or be harsh on your skin, but this couldn't be any more w

Great Coverage With Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur Concealer

When I'm shopping for makeup I always hope to find something that gives me really good coverage and also has few to no parabens. Now, I don't have completely horrible skin, but there are a few trouble spots and I like to cover up the dark circles I occasionally get.  Company's Product Description Contains Vitamin A, E, and apple extracts Ideal for covering up dark spots and scars Provides a natural look Long lasting, covers up dark circles under eyes Conceals visible signs of aging Paraben free-100% natural minerals Antioxidants to prevent wrinkles My Thoughts I like this product a lot. You know why? Because the coverage is very nice. It is thick and smooth but doesn't feel heavy on my skin. It is a bit light in color so, no I can't not use it as more than just a concealer. I have to apply it to the dark circles or dark spots and then make sure to blend my regular mineral powder over it. This works well because it hides these

NuElle Triple Action Anti Cellulite Firming Concentrate Review

I've mentioned it before-I have cellulite on my thighs and other areas of my body. I've had it for many years now. Not fun, not attractive. I hate it. I've tried so many things to get rid of it. I was interested in seeing how this new product, that was brought to my attention, would work on my problem areas. The product I tried was NuElle Triple Action Anti Cellulite Firming Concentrate with 25 Flub Busters . Company's Product Review Contains top 20+ well known botanical cellulite fighting ingredients Improves circulation, is a diuretic, reduces the appearance of cellulite over time Firms and detoxes Natural and organic Light cream texture Creates sauna effect My Thoughts I used it after showering and before eating a meal because the bottle says that it is best to do it two hours after you've eaten or one hour before eating. It says " Your body will only burn fat when it has none in the bloodstream." Seems logical t

Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotics Review

Recently I had a wisdom tooth pulled. I had to be on antibiotics for a few days before getting it pulled to destroy all of the bacteria around it and get rid of the infection.  It helped get rid of the infection, but in doing so, the antibiotics also destroyed the good bacteria. One of the best things to do in such situation is to start taking some probiotics. The one that I immediately started taking was Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotic. Company's Product Description Helpful to us in a number of ways, especially where a microflora imbalance exists Improve the function of the immune system Reduce populations of harmful microorganisms by competing for resources  Provide numerous digestive support benefits as well  Can also be helpful for: alleviation of eczema, irritable bowel syndrome and food allergies, inflammation management, vitamin production and enhanced mineral absorption Dairy, wheat, and gluten free Contains Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteriu

Conrad And The Cowgirl Next Door Book Review

I always have the greatest time reading a brand new book with my six year old. He gets so excited whenever he has something new to read. The last book that him and I spent time reading together was Conrad and The Cowgirl Next Door. Title: Conrad And The Cowgirl Next Door (The Next Door Series) Author: Denette Fretz Genre: Children's Fiction Conrad is a new to being a cowboy. When he decides to spend a summer vacation at his Uncle Clint's ranch for some ultimate cowboy training, he quickly figures out that being a real cowboy is a lot harder than it seems. Then he meets the cute little cowgirl next door, Imogene who makes being a cowgirl seem so easy, for herself, at least. Conrad is trying his best to be the perfect cowboy but he can't seem to get it right and it just so happens that Imogene is always around to see him fail. I thought this story was really cute for young kids like my son. He thought so many of the scenes were hilarious and had a new ques

Oh to keep looking young for decades to come... I've been using Vitamin C Serums for a while now.  The latest brand that I tried? Candid Essentials Vitamin C Serum Company's Product Description Boosts collagen production Reduces/prevents fine lines and wrinkles Minimizes sun spots/discoloration Reduces oxidative damage from the sun, air pollution, and smoke Smooths the texture of your skin, minimizes your pores Good for dry skin and loss of elasticity to face Combination of STAY-C 50, Feluric Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin E Powerful anti aging properties and added skin protection My Thoughts I like the labeling and the name of the brand.

Easy to add a few drops to your fingertips and massage onto your already clean face.  This Vitamin C Serum is good quality, works as well as any other Vitamin C Serum that I've tried.  There's not really any scent, it has never cau
