HSI Professional Flat Iron Review

Since having my second child, quitting my job and staying home with the girls, I don’t care how I look most days. You can guarantee if I’m not leaving my house, I’m in sweats, a borrowed shirt from my husband and my hair is not styled (unless you count baby spit up and unwashed hair as a style).

BUT you can bet your arse when I’m leaving my house, damn right I’m going to spend some time on myself, in order to feel my best in public. I still don’t put much effort into my makeup, mainly because I keep myself looking natural. Mascara, lipstick and I’m good to go. When it comes to my hair, I spend sometime there. I either use a waver to create a unique look or I want my hair pin straight and use a hair straightener.

This past week I was headed out with a friend and I knew I wanted my hair straight since it takes me less time to straighten my hair than it would take to use the waver. I was on a time crunch and new that straightening my hair was the way to go. I tried the HSI Professional Glider 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron“>HSI Professional Glider on my hair. I have thick, sometimes wavy/straight/kinked hair. My hair also frizzes up and looks poofy when it is humid outside. Using a Flat Iron is something I have been doing for years, it helps control this mess of hair on my head, quickly.

The before photo shows how my hair typically looks on a daily basis (out of a bun). I air dry my hair and I don’t add any products. The after photo shows my hair after the us of my HSI Professional Glider 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron“>HSI Professional Glider Flat Iron, without the use of any products. As you can tell my hair looks much smoother and sleeker after the use of my flat iron. If you would like to view a video I created about the product, you can do so here. (I’m not very good at these videos…. my oldest daughter would have done a better job, for sure!)

The HSI Professional Glider 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron“>HSI Professional Glider Flat Iron is 1” thick, has an on and off button with a light on the back of the flat iron to alert you if it is on and ready to use. The flat iron also has a temperature dial to control the heat you may need for you hair. Change your settings, based on the type of hair you have. The flat iron comes with a sample of argon oil to keep your hair sleek and smooth. You will also receive a nice tote bag for storage and a glove to use, so you don’t burn yourself with the flat iron.

The HSI Professional Glider Flat Iron is simple to use, from the very first usage. You can simply take it out of the box, plug it in and make your hair straight, sleek and beautiful! If you need further product reviews, please check out Influenster.

Testing out a New Dog Harness


We have three dogs in our family, that range in a few different sizes. Our smallest and oldest is our Chihuahua, Duchess. Then our oldest daughter has a dog, my husband adopted for her, that is a Chihuahua and Japanese Chin mixed, Candy Cane. We adopted Elvis, he is a puggle and my furry baby before our baby arrived.

With all of the dogs and our chaotic life at times, sometimes walking them gets pushed aside. To make things easier on our oldest, while walking her dog around the neighborhood, we ordered a new dog harness to keep her dog safer.

When I say safer, what I mean is her dog likes to escape. She escapes under our fence and runs around the block, she has escaped out of a collar while on the leash so the harness is necessary.

The dog harness is easy to use, the mesh harness is comfortable on the dog, there is an adjustable strap that goes around her chest so we can tighten it or loosen it if necessary. The mesh harness is sturdy for a small dog, she is able to run and jump in it as well.

We originally ordered a medium dog harness for Elvis, the puggle, but obviously it was too small for him. When ordering a harness, be sure to measure your dog first, prior to placing the order. Order yours https://babiesrhere.com/products/adjustable-comfort-soft-breathable-dog-harness-pet-vest-rope-dog-chest-strap-leash-set-harness .

I received this item free for my review, I just paid for shipping charges. 

 

 

Summer Fab Fit Fun Box Has Arrived!

EEEKKKK!!! I’m so excited for the Summer 2017 Fab Fit Fun box! I love being a member of Fab Fit Fun, they really have so much to offer to their members! I signed up for a year of service and that gave me select access, which means I get to customize my seasonal box, just enough to make it fit my needs but still provide some surprises! I also get access to Fab Fit Fun TV which offers workouts, recipes and DIY tutorials.

The Summer edition is my 2nd box from Fab Fit Fun and I love it! I was able to choose a few items to customize and make my Summer edition box perfect for me, one of the choices was which color BKR bottle I prefer, between Romeo and Rosy, I chose Rosy! IF you don’t have BKR bottle, you are missing out!

Rosy bkr bottle

I won’t leave the house without one! They hold up to 500 mL of water and are easy to refill. BKR is made of glass with a sleek silicone cover to protect it, so when I toss it in my bag, it is safe!

I was able to choose if I wanted something travel related, artistic or chef inspired or I could choose “Surprise Me”. I of course chose the chef inspiration, due to the love I have for cooking and I received the Himalayan Pink Salt Kit. Honestly, this is something I would not have picked up on my own, but I’m excited to try in my new kitchen soon!

Another option I got to choose, was which color Ruana by Michael Stars I wanted in my box, I chose the blue printed one, since I normally choose black for my clothing. I figured to add some blue in would be my “pop” of color this season! (Ha!) I’ve watched the handy video Fab Fit Fun has on the different ways to wear this thing…..I felt kind of weird trying it on as a scarf, so I think just as a cover up for my swimsuit or even over a tank and short outfit will suffice.

I was able to choose a fitness surprise or a beauty surprise. I knew hey would include some beauty options so I wanted to see what the “Fitness” surprise was. I’m not disappointed whatsoever. They included a Soothe and Cool Massage Oil to help after a workout! Since my body has been aching with ANY fitness I do, this is perfect. It smells lovely too!

The last option I got to choose was what color stone necklace by Kris Nations I wanted, and at this point I still wanted some surprise in the box, so I chose “SURPRISE ME!” and I love the color stone necklace they sent me. I received the Peach Moonstone, which is very delicate. I don’t wear much jewelry these days, with the little one grabbing everything she can, so I will save this for a special night out.

Other items included in the Summer edition are just perfect for summer! Juice Beauty is a great line of facial creams and I love the moisturizer I have, so I’m super excited to try the Smoothing Eye Concentrate on my dark circles! Cargo Cosmetics HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze was included, this is something I would never purchase myself but really want to try it! I also received an Ultra Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion with SPF 50 by Eau Thermale Avène, which is perfect for poolside in this Arizona sun! The box also comes with a handy paper, that lists all the products, their retail value and how to use some of the things that were sent!

The Noggle

I don’t know if you have heard of this ingenious invention, The Noggle. It is absolutely the greatest thing ever, if you don’t have AC vents in your back seat.

I had put this on our baby registry, while I was pregnant, even though my husband said we didn’t need one for the SUV. Oh but we do. I know being in the backseat is dreadful if there aren’t any air vents, however to be facing the other way, blocked by a car seat would be even worse. Especially since it is “Summer Weather” 9 out of the 12 months in Southern Arizona.

We went to a few different stores in Tucson, looking for The Noggle. It was such a popular item, however most places don’t carry it in store, but online. Look, it was 95 degrees outside, we needed this in order to survive at this point. We finally found it at a boutique baby store, paid for it and installed it in the parking lot. I could feel cold air in the back seat finally while sitting next to the baby in the car seat. We had it pointed towards her, but I was reaping the benefits too. Needless to say, we made it home calmly.

I chose the 6 foot Noggle, they also come in an 8 foot option. We felt this would work best for our family, if you are to purchase look at the difference to see what is best for you and yours. We can now enjoy our Summer road trips with a cooler car for everyone!

Just so you don’t have to drive all around town this summer looking for The Noggle, I have included a link to order one on Amazon!

Spring Fab Fit Fun Box 2017

I opened up my Spring 2017 Fab Fit Fun box and I have so many goodies to share with you! I was impressed with the price of this box, it is very reasonable compared to other subscriptions I have purchased. The amount of goodies enclosed are great, they are trending, full size products, unique and great brands! You can read the review or watch the video here !

wp-1490641085883.jpg

The first item I’m going to gush about is the Gypsie 05 Roundie. It really is versatile, you can use it as a beach blanket, picnic blanket, hang it on your wall, across your couch or love seat or like me use it as a cute table cloth! wp-1490641089610.jpg

I really love the “Resting Beach Face” zip pouch by Milly. It is great for wet swimsuits if you are traveling to the beach or local pool. However, I will most likely be using mine for all my makeup or beauty products when traveling. However, I’m starting to think it would work great in my diaper bag!

The Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning spray will be great on my mom hair, but it will also work for my tweens sun beaten hair when she hangs out at the pool all summer. The Fab Fit Fun box also included a hydrating face mask, this will be great to use when I get time alone to pamper myself, if I don’t use it soon, my tween will find it and try it out. It looks like a luxurious mask though, at a retail value of $28 a box, it is supposed to hydrate my dull skin back to a glowing silky smooth face.

Apparently Spring is the time to rejuvenate your skin back to life, from a cold dry winter. Got it. They included Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator to help me out with this. This is $79 a bottle and is supposed to leave my skin bright, smooth and healthy looking. Totally looking forward to this!

I was really impressed with the Lip Kit by Realher. I received it in Neutral pink (Women Rule the World edition), which is probably best for my skin tone. I thought the packaging was adorable on each lip stick item, with a cute saying. I’m a sucker for that stuff. The nail polish in the kit is great for Spring too! I received the Like a Virgin(white) and Shape of my heart (blush) duo. They are the perfect shades for spring outfits.

The jewelry item in this box is adorable. I was so happy to get the “Joshua Tree” bracelet by Emerald Duv, rather than the earring set. This bracelet acts like a cuff, it is going to go with so many of my outfits during Spring and Summer. I think it is simple and can totally be paired with other bracelets and articles of jewelry with no problem. I also received Nature’s Bounty Skin, Hair and Nails vitamins….they do not taste like strawberries, but they aren’t horrible.

The retail value of this whole box would be around $370, however I paid for the full year subscription, which set me back $179.99 for four seasonal boxes. I really enjoy getting spoiled once a season with great products, this was really fun to open and unveil. I totally look forward to what the other seasons have to offer too! Keep it simple, sign up for your own subscription box!
