Thermafuse Uphold Hair Spray

As women, we all need that extra hold for our hair as well as a hairspray that will leave our hair shiny and healthy, not flaky or sticky.  Thermafuse Uphold Hair Spray is an aerosol hair spray that firmly holds your hair style, yet is flexible and easy to comb through.  The Thermafuse Uphold Hair Spray is humidity resistant, dries fast and does not leave a sticky or flaky residue when you comb or brush through it.

Thermafuse Uphold Hair Spray is a product, that contains what they call a HeatSmart complex, which is specifically designed for the heat treated hair.  If you constantly use a blow dyer, straightening iron or any other heated hair product, Thermafuse Uphold Hair Spray will leave your hair shiny, as if you've never used a styling product.

The hair spray comes in a 10 oz. aerosol can and is the perfect addition to any hair regimen.  I've used this hair spray twice, since I've had it and let me tell you, they are not kidding when it claims it dries quickly!  Sometimes I will spray my hair, while still damp, to give it curl and shine.  I couldn't tell if the spray dried really quick or if my hair started to dry faster, either way, I did not have any flaking, any residue or sticky feeling after using this hair spray.

Although the Uphold Hair Spray is by Thermafuse, you can find this product at Beauty Care Choices site.  They are an e-tail site that carry many products, such as Thermafuse Uphold Hair Spray.  You can visit Beauty Care Choices to get your HeatSmart Complex hair spray and get that shiny and glossy hair.

En: les yeux n.1 Eye Cream

I will admit...when I first read the wonderful statements and claims about this product, I jumped on the bandwagon, meaning, I couldn't wait to try it and reap some of these wonderful benefits!

I have been using this eye cream for about a week now, and with any facial or eye cream or product, dramatic results will usually appear after a more continued use, such as 4-6 weeks. After the first week, I did notice my skin felt softer and more supple.  The cream felt silky, smooth and very lightweight.

It doesn't take but a tiny dab to go around your eyes.  This product is just not for eyes, but can be used as a facial moisturizer as well, in which, you may need to use a little more.  I mainly use this for my eye area only, as this is my more problematic area.  I have puffy eyes, doesn't matter if it's morning or night, they are puffy.  Any little thing will trigger my puffy eyes, such as sleeping on flat pillows (no elevation for the head and fluids drain to your eyes), smoke, not enough water name it!  I also have fine lines, more on the right side then the left.

I will say...I have NOT seen any improvements when it comes to combating my puffy eyes.  This is a big disappointment, as this was the main issue I wanted to tackle.  I am hoping, that after continued use, that these puffy eyes will at least diminish somewhat.  Like I've said...I've only been using this for a week, so I'm pretty sure this product will need more time to work.

On a more positive note...I WILL continue to use this product, as I love how it makes my skin feel, it contains Vitamin C, which is proven to help diminish fine lines and build collagen in the skin, it's a great lightweight moisturizer and it's Non-Comedogenic and Non-Acnegenic.

I'm not saying this will not work for your puffy eyes, I'm saying, that I've only been using this for one week and it hasn't done anything for mine...not yet.  If I do see any improvements in my puffy eyes area...I WILL DEFINITELY BRING YOU AN UPDATE!

Here are some of the claims this product can do for you:

- Smoothes the eye contour 
- Lifts and firms the skin around the eyes 
- Deflates bags, smoothes wrinkles and fades dark circles 
- Eye contour looks younger and more radiant 
- Non-Comedogenic 
- Non-Acnegenic

In just a few short weeks (2-4) you will begin to see improvements and with continued use, usually 12 weeks or sooner, continuing improvements.  You will see your fine lines and wrinkles, quickly reducing, smoother skin within the first couple weeks, sagging and dry skin starting to diminish and firmer and more replenished skin have developed.

I can't tell you how happy I was to get a knife sharpener from System Sharpener.  There are many knife sharpeners out there, but I love the modern and classy look of this particular one.  It doesn't look like your everyday black or silver sharpener, instead, it is a vibrant Lime Green with silver accents.

Of course, I had to put this little baby to test as soon as I received it!  I've had knife sharpeners before, some that were nothing but a grinding stick, but I found that this little gem worked!  I have so many dull knives in my kitchen drawers, that I get disgusted when I can't find a sharp one, just to cut through something simple.

The System Sharpener has a little black lever that you snap down, which has a suction cup bottom.  This is to prevent the sharpener from moving or slipping while sharpening your knives.  It also frees your hands so you have no accidents.  There are two sides, or two slots in this sharpener.   The first is to sharpen, which is perfect for blunt knives (not recommended for serrated knives.) This step should be done every six months or as needed. The second slot is for honing.  Honing is a necessary step used to eliminate burrs on a knife and to polish it.  This should be done  once a week to keep your knives sharp at all times.

Suitable for blunt knives.  Place knife in the sharpening slot.  Using slight downward pressure, run blade from its heel to its point through the slot.  Repeat three to five times. Sharpen knives every six months or as needed.

This is a necessary step used to eliminate burrs on a knife and to polish it.  Place knife in the sharpening slot.  Using a slight downward pressure, run the blade from its heel to its point through the slot.  Repeat three to five times.  Normally it's recommended to sharpen your knives once a week to keep blades sharp at all times.

This sharpener is not recommended for serrated blades or scissors!  It can be used with ceramic knives, but only for coarse sharpening.  This is NOT dishwasher safe.  Clean by using a wet cloth and dry it.  The metal blades may turn black, which is normal.

If you want to get your hands on this handy dandy tool, head on over to Amazon and get yours today, for only $13.45.  AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT...I'm also doing a giveaway for one of these knife sharpeners....SO ENTER TODAY!

I love my wine, especially Merlot and Pinot Grigio!  Sometimes, I may want a glass of wine before I can get it chilled enough to drink.  Yes...I love all my wines chilled, but it doesn't' have to be perfectly chilled...just not room temperature!  

That  is why I couldn't pass up the offer to try the VinoMio #WineChiller! This Wine Chiller came in a perfect sized white box, with exactly what the wine chiller looks like.  I was not familiar how one worked, so I read the instructions on how to use it.  Very self explanatory and very very easy.

Most people, including me, keeps the wine chiller in the freezer until ready to use.  This will make sure that your wine chiller is always chilled and always ready for use.  The instructions states that you should pour about a 1/4 cup or glass of wine from the bottle ( I just dranked a 1/4 cup from the biggie!), screw that tip to the metal rod and place chiller in the wine bottle until the rubber part of the tip is secure...almost like you are re-corking the bottle.

Once you pour the wine from the wine chiller, it also aerates the wine to a more pleasant smooth taste.  The wine chiller also keeps your wine chilled to the perfect temp.  I will admit, I thought this wine chiller would keep my bottle of wine chilled if I left the bottle out for several hours, but found that although it didn't keep it chilled several hours, it did, however, keep it perfectly chilled for at least 2 hours.  Not bad for a bottle of wine being left out that long. 

This stainless steel wine chiller is suitable for all wines...Red, White, Sparkling wines, Champagne and more.  This wine chiller is perfect for pool parties, BBQ's, family get togethers and picnics.  The VinoMio wine chiller can be taken with you everywhere you go. It fits perfectly inside most purses.  The VinoMio wine chiller fits perfectly inside the bottle of wine and has a non-drip pouring spout.

Pre-chilled wines and Rose wines will stay chilled for up to an hour while the Red wines will reduce to an ambient temp within 10-20 minutes.  The VinoMio Wine Chiller is sleek and sophisticated in design an makes the perfect accessory to any party or gathering.

If you want to purchase the VinoMio Wine Chiller, you can do so by going to Amazon and getting yours today.  You may also want to check out their Facebook Page


You can win your own VinoMio Wine Chiller by entering today!  That's right...enter the giveaway for a chance to win this awesome #winechiller!

I don't paint my nails often, but when I do, I like a sparkly and "Not so neutral" nail color.  I was happy to be chosen for the Play Love Laugh Natural Peel Nail Polish and was more thrilled when I got to pick my own colors!

The colors I chose were Sweet Purple and Sparkly Really Teally.  These nail polishes come in a 0.27oz bottle and are very vibrant colors in the bottle.  A lot of nail polishes CLAIM to be quick dry, but this Play Love Laugh Natural Peel Off Nail Polish REALLY is quick dry.  I was surprised how quick..2 minutes top!  Most nail polishes, when you lightly touch to see if it's dried, may leave a little finger print smudge or still feel sticky.  These nail polishes dry a matter of fact, I applied a second coat and between both coats, my polish was dried in just a few short minutes.

The only negative I find on this, is that the bottle is only 0.27oz, which is not even an ounce, but no more than I paint my nails...this is the perfect size for me and is well worth having a polish that is safe all around. 


The Natural Peel Off Nail polish is made from fruits and vegetables and is waterproof, non-toxic, contains no Acetone, Acetates, alcohol and  nitrocellulose. The nail polish can be removed WITHOUT using any harmful nail polish remover, by simply rubbing the polish under warm to hot water or while soaking in a bath and gently peeling the polish off.  If you happen to be taking a bath or in a hot tub and your polish softens...not to worry.  All you have to do is run them under cool to cold water for about 10 seconds and they will reset.

The polish can last between 7-30 days on toe nails, depending on your lifestyle, with the average being 2 weeks and on finger nails, 1-7 days with the average 4-5 days.  These polishes come in 12 awesome colors and were created by a mom with 3 young children.  These safe, non-toxic peel nail colors are perfect for MOMMY and ME (mommy and child).

What could be more awesome than a mom and child with matching nail polishes that are not only safe, but made with fruits and vegetables and are odorless!  You can grab a couple of these colors at Amazon for a 3 piece set for $17.99 or visit Play Love Laugh and pick your colors.  There are many to choose from! 

BUT...I am also doing a giveaway for Play Love Laugh Natural Peel Off Nail Polish!  That's right.  You can enter this giveaway to win your own!

If you're like me, you probably like to keep a tan, or at least have one, during the summer.  Now that it's winter, some of us have slacked off on the tanning (I mean, come on, who's going to see our legs in the winter time?).  But, I do know a few people who like to tan during the winter, just to keep a hint of color.  This, to them, is the best time to tan, as it's cool outside and you don't get nearly as hot.

Well I'll admit...I'm lazy when it comes to getting into a tanning bed, even during the summer time (And I own a tanning bed)!  But with all the talk and concern about tanning in a tanning bed or even tanning outside, it's just not safe to use the bed anymore.  With the fear of Melanoma and Cancer, it's just a scary thing to set foot (or body) into a tanning bed.

That is why I was happy to get the opportunity to try out Therma Labs Glow 2 Go Tanning Towelettes. I don't have to worry about constantly tanning until I get my desired look.  With the Glow 2 Go Tanning Towelettes, you can achieve your Glow, safely and without the harsh orange look.  This box comes with not 6, not 10, but 20 Towelettes compared to other brands.

I first used the towelettes today, about an hour ago.  I will admit, when I first opened the package, I was expecting to see a towelette covered in at least, some type of color....I didn't.  As a matter of fact, these towelettes looked clear, just like a baby's wipe.  After I buffed my legs real good and patted them dry, I ran a tanning cloth over them.  I didn't really see a big difference and I didn't see any of the tanning solution on my hands from using them.  I then began going over my whole body with the tanning towelette and eventually had to grab another one, as the first one was no longer damp.

The instructions that I received with the Glow 2 Go tanning towelettes did state: That it reacts to each persons amino acids in the body to get the natural looking glow and if you wanted to deepen or enhance the color, wait 4 hours and apply another towelette.  According to Therma Labs your tone should peak in a few days.  After you've reached your tone, then begin using 1 to 2 towelettes every two to three days to maintain.  Therma Labs also states that 1 in 1,000 may not see results, therefore, they will give you a full refund of the product if for any reason you are not satisfied. looks like I will have to wait a couple more days to see my result, although I did see a very faint hint of color.

                                                               BEFORE the towelette

                                                                 AFTER the towelette
                                                                       2 hours later

You will NOT get a dark tanned look the very minute you use these.  That is why Therma Labs designed these to gradually build your tone, so you don't get that unnatural and bronzy orange look.  After you've reached your tone, your color should last up to two weeks.  It is recommended that you do not shave within 24 hours before using these towelettes and that you scrub and exfoliate your skin for the best results.  Once applied, you need to wait at least 10 minutes before getting dressed.

These towelettes are so EASY and CONVENIENT to use!  I love the fact that you don't instantly get that tanned look, as you want it to gradually grow on you, just as if you were going to a tanning salon.  AND....the best part...I'M DOING A GIVEAWAY!  Yes, I will be doing a giveaway, to one lucky winner.  If you want that healthy natural tanned glow, enter the giveaway below.
