White Coffee Organic Single Serve Coffee, Breakfast Blend, 10 Count

Rating: 4 out of 5 Skulls

Price: $4.62

Contents: 10 count K-cup individual serving of White Coffee’s Organic Breakfast Blend.

I recently acquired a Keurig over the holidays.  My budget is limited but I like to try new things and of course how could I reset a box of K-cups that were under $10.00.  I rather enjoy coffee.  It’s my second favorite morning beverage other than water.  The next question everyone asks is “How do you take it?”  In other words, how do I like my coffee?  Do I want sugar or cream or perhaps something else?

Here’s my secret.  I like really strong coffee….but I need to add my version of “cream” and my version of “sugar.”  I like it served with almond or coconut milk and either coconut sugar or local honey.  I like to take the edge off, cut the acidity but I still want to taste the coffee.

I was skeptical when I ordered this.  Often Breakfast blends tend to be too mild for me.  I prefer and espresso or a nice dark roast.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Even after the addition of my “milk” and “sugar” I could still taste the coffee.  It was a lighter taste but was still able to shine through my palatable additions.

I was attracted to the fact that this coffee is Organic and biodegradable.  I feel less guilty about throwing the cups out instead of using a reusable one.  I was also attracted to the price.  This was a great little sample pack or for someone who doesn’t drink a lot of coffee. I purchased this one and 2 others at the same time in order to be able to rotate, sample, and of course share some with Rufo.

We both really enjoyed this blend and it’s almost gone.  I guess we will need to order more!  Perhaps we can find other blends by White Coffee.

 

Viva Naturals Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Rating: 5 out of 5 Skulls

Price: $12.99

I use Apple Cider Vinegar for so many things.  I use it for cleaning, rinsing my hair, flea protection for my cats.  It’s best to use organic ACV that contains the “mother” or natural organisms.

I purchased this bottle to put in my spare bathroom.  I use it for cleaning.  I also use it when bathing my cats.  It helps heal their skin from scratches and to prevent fleas.  I prefer to use natural products whenever I can.

I’ve used this a few times on my hair as a rinse and on my cats and it has worked fantastically.  I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV).

 

ZANZEA Ladies Cotton Linen Round Neck Two-layer A-line Baggy Maxi Dress

 

Rating: 4 out of 5 Skulls

This is another great inexpensive dress I’ve purchased off of Amazon using Snagshout.  Regardless of my discount this dress is quite affordable.

Price: $24.69

Initial Review:

I love the fabric.  It’s lightweight and very easy to wear and move around in.  The dress consists of 2 layers of fabric in different colors.  The bottom layer is a creamy white and features hidden pockets.  The top layer is a muted red and it attached to the bottom layer.  The scarf is the same creamy white color as the bottom layer of the dress and looks nice draped over my shoulders. I don’t know how to describe the style of the dress.  My best explanation of the style is somewhere between hippie and Star Wars.

Fit:

If you’ve read other clothing reviews I’ve done you may remember that I’m 5’2″ and about a size 20-22.  The dress was well fitted in the bust. It could even be worn by someone who had a more ample bust than I.  The dress doesn’t cling to my stomach but still allows me to look voluptuous.

Con:

After about a month I had a seam come undone on one side.  I was able to repair it easily.

 

Men’s Fox Yeah! Funny T-Shirt

 

 

Rating: 5 out of 5 Skulls

This shirt is hilarious!  I saw it on Snagshout and laughed so hard.  It features a picture of a fox and then the word “Yeah!” below.  It reminded me of this story I was told about a 2-year-old.  He was playing with building blocks on the coffee table and suddenly the family cat jumped on the table knocking the blocks over.  The child slams his fists on the table and yells “What the Fox!”

Quality:

This print has been placed on a high quality grey men’s t-shirt.  I’ve worn and washed this shirt about 10 times and the print is still in perfect condition.  For best results on any printed T-shift be sure to turn the shirt inside out prior to washing/drying.  I will state that I have not followed my own advice on this and despite this it has still retained the perfect print.

Price: $18.99

Fit:  I purchased a size larger than I needed.  I wanted to wear it more as a dress or night shirt.  If I was going to wear this as a regular shirt I probably would have went with a 3x instead.

Overall:

I love this shirt and I would purchase another one from this company.  Their t-shirts are high quality and so are their printings.

 

ZANZEA Sexy V Neck Strappy Long Maxi Dress

 

 

Rating: 5 out of 5 skulls

This is another great Zanzea dress I purchased from Amazon.  Like the other dress I previously reviewed this one also has very thin material but is holding out quite remarkably.  The straps are adjustable which is great especially for those with an ample breast.  My favorite feature of this dress is that it has pockets!

Price: $14.99

Color choices: Black, Red, and White

Fit:  I ordered a size 22.  I’m 5’2″ and I normally wear a size 20-22.  The fit was perfect!  It didn’t cling to my stomach, it is nearly floor length.  The adjustable straps make it easier to adjust for bust size.  I have quite an ample breast so I have to be sure to keep them in check or I risk flashing everyone.

Overall:  For the price, the fit, and the pockets I would suggest this dress and I would buy it again.  In fact I may order another in a different color if they are still available.

 

ZANZEA Beach Long Maxi Dress

 

 

Rating: 5 out of 5 Skulls

Size/Fit: 22 Women’s (plus-size).  This dress fits wonderfully on me.  I have a larger bust so I have to wear a sports bra or something underneath to prevent exposing myself to others.  The dress doesn’t cling and flows nicely.

Occasion: You can wear this for multiple occasions.  I’ve put a shirt on over it or paired it with a sweater and worn it to work.  I’ve also worn it out casually with just my sports bra on underneath.  It would also make a great bathing suit cover up.

Price: $17.99

Seller: Amazon (Aosh)

Eligible for Prime: Yes

Date Purchased: September 2016

I really enjoy wearing this dress.  I’m quite a modest person when it comes to work so I often pair it with leggings, a shirt, or a sweater.  Once I’m out of work I remove the extra layers and just enjoy the free movement of this dress.  The fabric is a bit thin and I tend to only wash them and hang them to dry rather than using the dryer. Despite weekly wear it is still in great condition.

 

DermaChange Organic Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner Set

General Overview:

The product is excellent.  It has lasted a long time despite the small size.  The price is a bit high for such a small set.  If you can make it last as long as I have then it seems less expensive.

I purchased the small 4oz. size of DermaChange shampoo and conditioner set to try it out. I have curly/wavy hair that tends to be oily at the follicle and dry on the ends.  This set of hair care products works pretty well on my hair. Note: I also have long hair and tend to use more conditioner than shampoo.

Product Name: DermaChange Thick and Full Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner

Date Purchased: October 28, 2016

Current price: $24.99

Since it’s going to take me about 3 months to finish these bottles I estimate that my price per month is about $8.33 or about $4.17 per bottle.  This is about average price for a decent bottle of shampoo/conditioner.

If you can make this last as long as I have it’s totally worth the price but if you must wash your hair more often and use more of the product this may seem a bit pricey.  Despite what seems like a high price you get what you pay for.  If you want to use quality products then you may have to pay more to get something more natural and to avoid the chemicals.

How long do the bottles last? – I’ve had these about 2 months this week and they are not empty.  I can probably make it last at least another month.

How often do I wash my hair: 1-2 times per week.  As little as I can get away with.  No….it doesn’t smell gross. You can ask me later about the “No Poo” movement. 🙂

Is my hair fuller or healthier? – I can’t determine if it is any fuller of if it has caused any missing hair to regrow.  I can tell you the texture of my hair is smoother and less dry.  I also think it helps my hair to grow faster.  I had my hair cut in the beginning of December and it’s already grown about 1/2″.

Will I purchase this product again? – I would certainly consider it.  I’ve really been enjoying trying new things.  I really like it being part of my hair washing routine to infuse vitamins and nutrients into my hair.

 

 

Premium Printed Leggings (Plus Size) (Inner Elephant)

I have to say when I ordered these off of Amazon there was no specification of size other than basically one-size “normal” and one-size “plus size.” The lack of individual sizing left me a little skeptical. I decided to order them and give it a try.  I loved that there were various prints to choose from.  There are many different patterns available for the 2 basic sizes.  I fell in love with the “Inner Elephant” print and decided to order them.

I’m typically a 20-22 in USA Women’s clothing.  I’m 5’2.” I really wondered how these were going to fit.  Would the design stretch out making these appear ill fitting?  Would they fit properly at all?

I was pleasantly surprised!  First off all the texture of the material is amazing.  It’s extremely soft to the touch.  They may be hard to wear in the summer here but they will be excellent for fall-spring. They fit extremely well.  They don’t bunch up and they hug my curves well.

I would consider purchasing another pair at full price because I’m so happy and satisfied with these leggings.  They fit well, the texture is amazing, and I love leggings!!!!

 

 

Car cellphone holder review

Rating Explanation: Due to assembly needed and that it fell apart easily and I had to re-assemble it.

*Update (12/27/16) – For some reason the plastic piece embedded in the suction cup broke off.  I was able to super glue it back together.  I’m going to contact the seller on Amazon.  I will update my review with the results.

So far I’m in love with this cellphone holder for in my vehicle. It’s Red and black (my favorite colors) and it holds my phone perfectly while I drive. When you first take it out of the box it requires a little assembly and be careful not to push on the release/hold lever too hard or it will come apart.
For about 20 minutes I thought I had completely broken this neat little gadget. I finally managed to get the pieces back together and it back to an operational state.
It was easy to install and use. You simply choose where you would like it to hang from your window, place the suction cup on the window, and lower the lever. The lowering of the lever creates a suction effect and allows the cellphone holder to adhere to the window.
Since properly installing about 3 weeks ago it has not fallen off of the window. A few times my phone fell out of the holder. This may be due to the product or to user error when placing the phone in the cradle. There are 2 bottom pegs to rest the base of the phone on. It also features two wings that expand by pressing on a button on the back of the holder.
When placing the phone in the holder be sure the wings are fully extended, hold the phone in place while resting it on the bottom pegs and squeeze the wings together to hold the phone firmly. When removing the phone press on the button on the middle back of the holder until the wings are fully extended and then remove your phone.
I admit it can be a bit distracting to have my phone in my field of vision but if my first reaction is to look at the phone when it makes noise it is better to be in front of me than beside me.  It’s a great safe way to drive hands-free.

Update:

Unfortunately the holder came crashing down randomly.  The plastic piece in the suction cup broke from the other piece.  I do really like this cellphone holder so I super glued it back together.  I attempted to contact the seller but there was no response.
