I was super excited when I found out I was going to be reviewing an INNX Mattress Pad! I’d only been wanting to since I started.  I made this one fun.  Brought the poor dogs into it with me as my cohort’s.  I don’t think they minded.  Getting the footage proved to be a bit more difficult than I had ever imagined.  But, we are talking about two very independent minded souls I was working with.  More about those crazy goofs in a bit.

For now, the mattress pad.  The first night’s rest was heavenly.  Was as if I’d not ever slept on anything so soft before.  My body just laid down and I went straight to sleep.  Not only has it helped with a good night’s rest, but has helped keep my back in line while sitting here working away like I do all day long.  I honestly work harder and with more get up and go than I ever did for the 29 years for someone else.  Productivity has been remarkable.  The pressure points so affected by Fibromyalgia are not as affected with the mattress topper.

The pressure points so affected by Fibromyalgia are not as affected with the mattress topper.  I don’t wake up hardly able to move for moments that feel like hours on end.  I’m not stuck in one place ever so slowly to loosen one joint at a time.

For anyone affected by staying still too long causing stiff joints, I would recommend an INNX Mattress Topper Pad.  It won’t take it completely away, but it will give you the oomph to keep going and face whatever else the day has in store for you.  For once, wouldn’t you like to be prepared for something good?  I know I do!  Go and get yours today at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NCK3VXJ.

Bamboo Laptop-Desk from Ucharge

I have been so excited to get this tray!

With all the health problems that have come up in the last year alone, spending time in bed has become a must.  However, I can only lay here for so long before my brain just speeds into over-drive and nearly out of control with creative ideas.  Therefore, being able to work the brain while relaxing the body has become my new normal.  The wonderful people at Ucharge gave me this awesome opportunity to review their beautifully crafted bamboo tray.

It came double boxed and bubble wrapped for extra security in transport.   Size: 21 5/8”L x 13 3/4”W x 11 3/4”H. Weight: 5.26Lbs. Lightweight and foldable. Made of 100% superior natural bamboo, durable and environmentally friendly.

Easy to maneuver lockable legs with 5 different tray tilting angles for a better viewing experience..  The flowering slots leave it open for air to get to the laptop so it doesn’t over heat for those long nights hard at work.

Also comes equipped with a cup holder and a drawer!

Personally, while working with the tray in bed, I will not be using the cup holder.  Too risky!  Great idea though.

The tray itself is very sturdy overall.  It holds the laptop, tablet, phone and stylus pens.  Along with my bamboo mouse!  🙂

I recommend this tray for anyone who needs / wants a tray.  Beautiful color and craftsman ship.  Overall great find!

What's Your Go-To Candle Scent?

 

My go-to scent was/is the tried and true apple cinnamon.  Something about that particular aroma that just soothes my soul.  Reminds me of so many memories – all good ones too!  My favorite memory associated with the spice of cinnamon was my Aunt & Uncle’s travel camper.  It was comfortable, inviting and full of so much love.  She forever had a cup of tea waiting for me … as if she knew I was going to knock.

I’ve recently moved.  New location … new scent is my thinking.  I’m still looking for scent that defines my feelings while here in the new place.  It’s a process.

So, during this process, I came across an advertisement for Goose Creek Candles.   I’m sure you’ve seen them too.  Before I go on, I need too say that I’ve been a die hard Yankee customer for years.  A stop at the Yankee store was a must at every trip to the mall.  So, when I clicked on the link for Goose Creek I really wasn’t looking to be impressed at all.  Man … was I blown outta my seat!  I even took the time to read the “About Us” section of the site.  Am such a sucker for a touching story.  Theirs is surely one!  But, you didn’t come here for all that ….

Onto the good stuff!

I’ve made two separate orders with Goose Creek.  The first: I ordered wax melts in blueberry cheesecake, banana nut bread and apple cider.  Along with a 24oz jar of blueberry cheesecake

 

They come with double wicks, so they burn evenly
and all the way to the bottom.  I like that!

I didn’t enjoy the apple cider as much as I thought I would.
The scent was blah.

 

No picture for banana nut bread – sorry.  I really enjoyed this scent a lot!  So it’s a thumbs up and 5 stars for blueberry cheesecake and banana nut bread.  Thumbs down and no stars for apple cider.

 

Second order:

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake!  The name alone just sounded like fun to me, so I had to try it.  It smells heavenly!  I have this one in my little corner of the house.  It’s still just not quite the one though.

I got the Sweet Honeysuckle for my Sister.  We have this one in the dinning room.  It is like walking outside when you walk through there now.  It’s not over-bearing as some floral can be.  It has a fresh, sweet smell … but not sickly sweet.  It’s just right.  I’m not sure how it would do in a smaller area, as our dinning / kitchen area is rather open and a large space.  I could see this one maybe being too much in a small room.  But, then that’s all in preference and your sniffer. 🙂

This one was my “Let’s try it” buy.  It’s called Warm Wishes and it smells just like yellow cake batter.  YUM!  Yes, I have a fixation with baked goods and my candles.  Sis likes floral.  We clash!  Luckily, we live in a rather large home with my end on one side and hers on the other.  It works!

 

Now … for my next order … I must try ….                                                                                                                                Banana Pudding!   Yes, please!

 

I’m a die hard Goose Creek fan now.  Love their candles.  Love how they started their company.  Easy to order.  Quick to ship.  Notification of shipment is superb!  Arrives in good condition as they take good care to wrap and pack properly.  All around great company and product.  I support them! 🙂

Luvami Earrings

Was so excited to get this little black box.  Am such a sucker for anything shiny!  Boy, do they shine when the light catches them just so.   Versatile too.  These bad boys can be worn with the most elegant evening wear or paired with your favorite pair of jeans and sweatshirt with hair pulled back in a messy bun any day.   I love these earrings!  #LUVAMIEARRINGS

 

Cozy Phones – The Headphones You'll L.O.V.E.

 

When approached to review the Cozy Phones, I looked them up on Amazon.  My initial reaction, of course, was to wonder where these were when my two were coming up.  Sure could have used them!  So, I was already anxious for their arrival.

I put them on the second I got them open.  Was delighted to see I received the panda.  Adoresies!  The headband itself is super soft.  My only issue with them for myself is that they become quite warm on my forehead.  I’m a hot box though.  So, no wearing them to the beach for me.  They would be a sweat catcher and I really wouldn’t want to do that to them.

I suffer from chronic pain and fibromyalgia and tend to have to lay down often throughout the day.  The Cozy Phones are amazing in that they afford me the luxury of being able to listen to music while laying down comfortably.  No more awful ear buds or bulky headphones that hurt my ears.  The Cozy Phones are wonderful!  The phones themselves are very soft and flexible.  It’s as if I don’t even have them on but, I do!

Parents!  Mommies!  Daddies!  Your kiddos need these for those long trips on the road to see Grandma and Grandpa.  They can watch or listen to their devices while affording you the ability to concentrate on the road without the distraction of all the background noise.  Maybe carry on a conversation in the car with your significant other?

I absolutely love the Cozy Phones.  I gave them a 9 on the comfort scale only because they are a bit warm for me. Otherwise, it would have been 10’s across the board. Recommend them for all ear sizes of all ages. 🙂

Thank you for allowing me to review the Cozy Phones.

 

Smitten with the Panda!

Stitch Fix – What Is It and Is It Worth the $?

Stitch Fix is a personal style service that evolves with your taste, needs and lifestyle, as it reads on the website homepage.  I was first introduced to Stitch Fix via a friend.  Then, I seen an ad for them on Facebook and decided I would finally take a look.

First: a thorough quiz to get an idea of your personal style and preference.  Be ready to answer questions about your measurements.  If you don’t know them off the top of your head, have a tape measure handy.

Only a snippet of the measurements they will ask for.

They will ask your price range on each category.  I am on a fixed budget so I had to ask for the cheaper, the better on everything.  At the end of the quiz there is an area for special instructions / information, if any.  My special instructions were that I needed something casual, airy, and very budget friendly. Emphasis on the budget friendly, as you can see.

This was closest to my own personal style than the other 3 options they gave.  Loved everything about all three outfits above.

Second: $20 up front to pay the personal stylist to hand-select the outfit with accessories.

Third: Select a date when you would like your first box to be shipped.

That is it in a nut-shell.  Very easy.  I did all 3 steps in less than 30 mins and that was having to measure as I do not know my measurements off the top of my head.   I opted to have the box sent later in the month.  I actually forgot about it until it showed up.

 

These are the two outfit combos I received.  Adoresies! Loved everything in the box but the tote … am not a tote fan at all.

Lawler Two pocket top by Skies are Blue with Ruxin Distressed Boyfriend jean – Mavi.

Lawler two pocket long sleeve top with the Ruxin Distressed Boyfriend Jeans and Anchorage Laser cut Tote – Street Level.

Serafina Lace detail cardigan – Le Lis with Corrie Back cut out knit top – Nine Britton and Ruxin Distressed Boyfriend Jean.

 

Same outfit as above just added the Anchorage Laser cut Tote.

I would wear everything that was sent.  Just cute as a button!

This was my #1 box price list as follows –

Tote – $64.00
Knit Top – $28.00
Pocket Top – $58.00
Cardigan – $58.00
Jeans – $98.00
__________________
Subtotal $306.00
Buy 5 Discount 25%* -$76.50
Styling Fee Credit -$20.00
Total  $209.50

If I wasn’t on a thrift store budget now, this whole concept is ideal for me.  I have severe social anxiety.  Going into a busy mall isn’t an option.  Having a service / business as this one is brilliant, in my opinion.

How do you get the items back you don’t want?  They supply a prepaid mailing bag.  Pack up what you don’t want in the prepaid bag and drop it in the mail within 3 days.  Easy!

BONUS!
They offer a referral program!  $25 added to your account for everyone that starts and ships their first Fix through your link.
here is mine : Cecilia / ZenCricket Referral 

Try it out!  It’s fun to get a couple of outfits through the mail.

I give this whole experience 5 stars, two thumbs up and the Zen seal of approval.

Tousled Tresses

 

  In a little Southern Indiana town called West Baden.  Just across highway 56 from the infamous West Baden Springs Hotel, sits a little Salon called Tousled Tresses.   Located just inside the Homestead Plaza, taking a step inside is like taking a step back in time.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Owner / Stylist, Jill Seybold Tooley, is a gem at her craft.

Since moving soon, I had to get back into the Salon to have Jill work her magic on my hair one more time before I left.  On the 25th of January, my appointment was set.  Our friend, Shanna, drove me to the appointment.  We have all been friends since grade school.  All grew up in the same small town.  So our mini reunion was filled with laughter, memories and lots of gabbing.  I have rather long hair and had been wanting to dye it pink for some time now.  This time … I did just that!

  Even though I am a blonde, I am not that natural of a blonde.  My roots had to be bleached.  Giving away my secrets!

  Absolutely loving the blonde color!  She did a wonderful job.  It’s lighter than I would have went if I were staying in Indiana, but I think Florida can handle it.

  Bring on the curls!

The lovely end result!  Am loving it!!
