Shiatsu Massager

I'm in love with my new Naturalico Shiatsu Massager! You can plug it into the wall, or the car (although I don't know when I'd actually use it in the car); no batteries needed. It's heated, and you can reverse the massaging direction with the touch of a button.

Its prime use is the neck and shoulders, although there are instructions for lower back and feet. I love using it on my neck and shoulders with the heat. The heat is warm, but not hot, which is nice and relaxing. The pressure and rotation of the massager feels like a person giving the massage- it's wonderful! Some similar massagers chop/pound/vibrate; this one actually kneads. After a long day on the computer at work, and then the long drive home in rush hour traffic, this is the perfect way to wind down and relax. 

While it is completely portable, and the box that it comes in has a handle and is pretty sturdy, it is a little on the heavy side (but most of these kind of massagers are!).

I recently got to test out a sample of ZzzQuil thanks to Influenster. If you have trouble sleeping, you should definitely try out ZzzQuil! It comes in LiquiCaps and liquid form.

Perks of ZzzQuil: 
- It is non-habit forming 
- You sleep soundly & wake up refreshed 
- It can help you fall asleep in less than 20 minutes

As a reminder though, ZzzQuil is only for sleep, NOT for any kind of pain relief. Please make sure that you are giving yourself 7-8 hours of sleep when you take it.

Middle Ages

We now have four Carole P Roman books in our library. I have to say that, unfortunately, this one is our least favorite of all of them. It is about twice as long as the other three books, and it didn't hold my son's attention like the others do. I also noticed there were several spots where editing and proofing were missed. It didn't seem to flow as easily, either. 

However, it does tell of the time period (in an age appropriate manner too) - showcasing the naming practices, the clothing, different types of food, religion, schooling, social structure, etc which was definitely nice! It also has a section at the end of some famous people from the Middle Ages; as well as a glossary. 

I did receive this book complementary for my review. All opinions are my own.

Always Radiant

Always Radiant with Flexfoam- Wear what you want with these leak free pads. They are super absorbent; yet they are thin and lightweight. Very comfortable! With these pads you really can wear those skinny white jeans (I wouldn't wear at all but that's just me. Hehe) during that time of the month.

Influenster Goddess VoxBox

Recently I was choose to recieve Influenster's Goddess VoxBox! I love getting VoxBoxes from Influenster because they are usually filled with all kinds of neat products.

This time around we got this great assortment of pampering goodies:

Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner- I really liked how these smelled! My hair definitely felt more hydrated, soft, and full after using them. 

Sinful Colors Nail Polish- this was a limited time matte polish from the Kylie Jenner Trend Matters Collection. I've never tried a matte polish before, it's really interesting. It had a different feel when you run you fingers over it; and obviously, a very different look to it. The shade I got (Glazy Sunday) is probably one I would not have picked for myself, it didn't look great with my skin tone. I didn't use a top coat, because I wanted to keep the matte finish, but then it chipped after two days. 

Ebates - did you know you can use rebates to get money back from shopping online? If you use my referral link to join - we both save! 

Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads - ahh these are AMAZING! Each pad is individually packaged, great for storing a few in the desk at work, or your purse. Just one of these small, but mighty, pads can remove the polish off of both hands! I need to try fingers and toes next time. I really think you can do all of them. It's super easy to use, fast, and not messy! Love them. 

Always Radiant with Flexfoam- Wear what you want with these leak free pads. Super absorbent, yet thin and lightweight. 

Downy Fresh Protect with In Wash Febreze Odor Defense-I got this in April fresh and it smells fabulous. You pop these into the washing machine and then wash as normal. Thanks to motion activated technology, that fabulous scent comes out to help with bad odors. I love These with my work out clothing. 

Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol Free Hydrating Toner- so refreshing at the end of the day! It has a gentle hydrating feeling after you apply it. So glad it doesn't dry your skin out like some toners I've used before; it also doesn't burn, it's very gentle. Helps for nice, clean, refreshing skin! 

The best part about these VoxBoxes- every single item mentioned here was sent to me for FREE for testing and review purposes!!  Every opinion mentioned here are my own.
