Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review

Tonight, I am  lucky enough to review the Old Factory Candle Gift Set!

This set comes with 3 two ounce scented soy wax candles. This set is the Happy Holidays set. The three scents included with this set are Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, and Gingerbread. The scents are great and they actually last the whole time that the candle is burning. I also found that the candles, though only 2 ounces, burn for a VERY long time. Another awesome benefit is that the wicks are self-trimming!

I found that burning the Christmas Tree and Candy Cane together in my living room actually gives off a really nice smell and then I burned the Gingerbread one in the kitchen which was very pleasant as a kitchen smell.

I did want to mention a couple other things about these candles. Two of the best parts about them, if you ask me! The first: every purchase has a 100% Guarantee! If you don't like the smell or if something is wrong with the candle......then all you have to do is send them back (the company even pays for the return shipping!) and they will refund you your money! How simple is that? The other thing is......the candles are made right here in the USA! So we are supporting a company right here in our own country when we purchase these.

They don't only make the Happy Holidays collection.....they make:

Fall Harvest: Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and Autumn Leaves
Winter Wonderland: Hot Cocoa, Roasted Chestnut, and First Snow
Romance: Rose Petal, Champagne, and Dark Chocolate (this is the one I want to try next)
Fresh & Clean: Lemongrass, Olive Blossom, and Fresh Linen
Spa Day: Cucumber, Lemongrass, and Green Tea
Vacation: Sea Breeze, Hawaiian Lei, and Awapuhi
Coffee Shop: Coffee Bean, Hazelnut, and Chai Tea
Man Cave: Straight Razor, Leather, and Mahogany
High As A Kite: Cannabis, Incense, and Bag O' Cookies
New Born Baby: Baby Powder, Baby Shampoo, and First Blanket
50 Shades: Leather, Jasmine Bubbles, and Vanilla Sex

With Christmas fast approaching.....maybe you should grab a couple packs of these and give them out or even just to have on hand for gifts if something comes up and you need one. OR.....maybe you just want to burn them in your home for your holiday parties and get togethers.

Dr. Song's Teeth Whitening Kit

This evening I am reviewing Dr. Song's Home Professional Teeth Whitening Kit.

If you are like me you think your teeth could always be whiter but have tried so many different things and none of them have shown a huge difference. I have tried a ton of different teeth whitening aids including strips, trays, lights, toothpaste, mouth wash, gum, pens, gels, etc. I have had some success with some of them but nothing unbelievable or that made an outstanding difference. 

Then I tried this system.....I can honestly say that not only have I noticed a difference but so has my kids, husband, and co-workers! I thought at first that it was all in my head.....then my husband and kids said something so I chocked that up to them being nice and trying to make me feel good. However, when one of my co-workers asked me if I had been doing something and another co-worker said she was wondering the same thing.....I knew there must REALLY be a difference! 

This kit includes everything you need to make your teeth whiter and brighter. It comes with 8 extra large syringes for over 50 applications, the thermoform trays and the white LED light used and the gel applicator! 

When you first get the system.....you have to form the trays to your teeth just like you would a mouth guard for sports. It is pretty easy. Then you cut the tab off of the front of the trays once you have them formed the way they are comfortable in your mouth. Then you brush and floss your teeth before you begin the treatment. You put 5 ml of the gel into a small bowl and use the applicator brush to apply the gel to the front teeth, put trays in and wipe away any gel on the gum area. At this time you can use the LED light by placing it over the trays for 15 minutes. You wear the trays anywhere from 15 minutes to 4 hours depending on the treatment that you desire and the sensitivity that you begin to experience. You repeat daily until you reach your desired shade. 

Now if you have sensitive teeth when it comes to whitening products like I do.....then I do suggest getting the Dr. Song Remineralization Gel syringes. They help with the sensitivity during treatment and they help strength the enamel in your teeth. I know they most definitely helped me with the sensitivity and this kit was good for 50 treatments as well. So I suggest giving these a try too. 

This is a great system and if you are looking for a system that really works and that isn't hundreds of dollars......I would suggest this one for sure! I know that I will be getting this one for a couple people on my Christmas shopping list! I highly recommend it! Plus, check out Dr. Song's other great products.

Big Slice Cooked Apple Pouches Review

Today I am going to be reviewing Big Slice Cooked Apple Pouches.

When I received these I was a little hesitant about giving them a try! I thought how can a pouch containing cooked apples that are flavored like Raspberry Hibiscus and Green Coffee Extract taste good?!?!?! Well much to my surprise, they were better than good!!! They are GREAT! This one is one of my favorite flavors!!! I couldn't believe it!

My other favorite one is the Cinnamon French Toast flavored one! OMG......it makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

I did try the Boysenberry and Chocolate one and didn't care for that one at all. Then there was the Banana, Mango, and Hemp Seed one....I do NOT like bananas or ANYTHING flavored banana so I had my kids try this one and their response was: "its sour but yummy!"

The company has 3 different lines totaling 16 different flavors! Their lines are:
1. PURE - "Our Pure line was made with just one goal in mind - we wanted to create something simple and delicious. Amazing on Greek yogurt, granola, or all by itself, each recipe is made with pure fruit and spices gently blended together. If it was any more naked, we'd be handing it a bathrobe."
2. FIT - "Being fit doesn't mean succumbing to diet fads - being fit is a lifestyle! Four different varieties promote energy, power, balance, and beauty. Toss one in your gym bag before spin class and go ahead with your fit self."
3. LUXE - "When it's time to indulge, reach for a snack from our luxe line. Rich flavors and pure fruit. Decadent AND healthy? Yup, congrats! You've just found your new guilty pleasure, minus all of the guilt."

The flavors within each line are as follows:

  • Orange Ginger
  • Apricot
  • Natural
  • Blueberry Pomegranate
  • Lemon Berry
  • Chai
  • Cherry Vanilla


  • Banana Mango & HEmp Seed
  • Peach Green Tea & Aloe
  • Pineapple Passion Fruit & Fiber
  • Raspberry Hibiscus & Green Coffee Extract


  • Peach Bellini
  • Cinnamon Candy
  • Boysenberry Chocolate 
  • Cinnamon French Toast
  • Caramel

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Super Glow Stick Bracelet Review

Today I am reviewing Super Glow stick bracelets! This one was a fun one to review!

My kids LOVE things that glow and so around our house we go through a LOT of glow sticks, bracelets, wands, necklaces, etc. So when I was asked to review there glow stick bracelets, I was quick to accept the challenge!

We have used a lot of different brands and kinds of glow sticks and they are all different! We have found that some don't glow very bright, some only half of the stick glows, and some only glow for a few minutes. We, obviously, look for glow sticks that glow bright, for a long time, and the whole stick glows!

These glow sticks glow nice and bright when you crack them. I am also very happy that the whole stick glows! We used them on Halloween night when we were out trick-or-treating. We connected a couple of the bracelets together to make necklaces and anklets. I also put them around each of their wrists. So we glowed and the cars could see us! They worked great and we got a lot of compliments about them while we were out and about. Then, when we got home the kids played with them for the rest of the night. We also used them when we went to a friends house for dinner. I took about 20 of them and my kids and my friend's kids loved playing with them while we were there.

In the tube there is 100 glow sticks! I love that there are so many because my kids go through them like crazy, LOL. There are 5 different colors of glow sticks inside.....blue, green, pink, yellow, and orange but I have found a couple of the pink ones that are a darker shade and almost look purple! There is also 100 connectors in the tube too. So you can connect them together and make necklaces, anklets, belts, crowns, etc.

If you are looking for good, quality glow sticks....then look NO further...HERE they are!!

Skin QR Organics Anti Cellulite Body scrub and Massager Review

Tonight I am reviewing two of Skin QR Organics products: the Phat QR Body & Cellulite Massager and the L'or de la Mer Organic Anti Cellulite Body Blaster Scrub with Seaweed.
As most of my readers will remember....about a month or so ago, I did a review on Skin QR Organics' NuElle Triple Action Anti Cellulite Concentrate. This concentrate goes with the two items that I am reviewing tonight to make us the Phat QR Solutions Anti Cellulite Collection!

I absolutely LOVE these products! I have the whole Phat QR Solutions Anti Cellulite Collection! I started with just the NuElle Triple Action Anti Cellulite Concentrate and I like that so much! I could tell a difference within just a few days.....Then a couple weeks down the road, my husband even mentioned that he was starting to notice a difference. Then I got the L'or de la Mer Organic Anti Cellulite Body Blaster Scrub with Seaweed and the Phat QR Body & Cellulite Massager.

These three when used together are unbeatable. This is the best thing that I have gotten and used for cellulite. I have two kids and so of course I have cellulite on my outer thighs and buttocks and then on my stomach as well. I have noticed a significant change in the amount and appearance of my cellulite with these three products used together. I would HIGHLY recommend giving them a try, especially if you have stubborn cellulite that is making you self-conscious! I can honestly say that I have a noticeable difference in mine!

In regards to the L'or de la Mer Organic Anti Cellulite Body Blaster Scrub with Seaweed....I thought it would smell horrible.....when I first opened the tub I was a little worried. It had a little stronger smell than I was expecting but it was not horrible. Then when I used it, I noticed that the smell was actually pretty good. It was kind of oily when I was applying but then when I got out of the shower after rinsing it off.....I loved how fresh and still moist that my legs felt. I didn't have to put lotion on after the shower and they were soft and smooth! However, they weren't oily and greasy feeling!

In regards to the Phat QR Body & Cellulite Massager....I thought it would so nice and massaging to use.....when I first tried it, I was a little worried. It had a little stronger/more painful feeling than I was expecting but it was not horrible. Then when I got used it (after using it a couple times), I noticed that the feeling actually started to feel pretty good. It was different than I thought it would be the first time I used it. I thought it would just be soft and roll over my skin but it was a more deeper tissue massager and I truly love it! I think that the best part about it is that YOU are the one that controls the pressure that is applied. That allows you to control how deep of muscle you massage and you can massage any sore muscles that really need it as well. Earlier I said a stronger/more painful than I thought....what I meant by that is that I used too much pressure and didn't know how to use it and wasn't used to it. However, once I figured it out.....I can't imagine not having this Phat QR Body & Cellulite Massager!  

I love this company and their products so much....I cannot wait to start trying their other products! Plus, they shipped quickly and the company is very customer friendly! They are quick to respond to any questions and happy to help with anything that I needed! If you wanted to check out the company and their products, you can do so HERE!

Abundant Harvest Game Review

Tonight I am reviewing a kids conversation game. It is called Abundant Harvest for Kids.

This game is really great if you want to learn how your kids think and how the would handle different situations. It gets you and your kids talking about different scenarios and how you/they should handle them. I love how it gets you talking with your kids. This is the game board:

I learned a lot about my kids and how they would handle situations of different kinds. It also gave me a chance to let them know what I liked/disliked about how they would react and allowed me to teach them some coping and reaction mechanisms that are more appropriate for each situation.

I think this game brings up situations in which would actually happen and gives you and your child(ren) the opportunity to discuss how they would/should react. What is appropriate and what is not and you can discuss how YOU would react and what  you would do to allow them to learn from you!

This game is definitely a great conversation starter and learning game! For our family.....not only my kids learned....I learned a lot about them too!

The one thing I would say is that this game is definitely true when it says 7+ years old. My 5 year old gave it a try and the conversation was just too much for him. So I would say definitely 7 or older. Also, some of the topics were a little too much for my 8 year old too. Only a couple though and when we got one of those, we just chose a different card.

Here is what the company says about the game:
"Abundant Harvest® for Kids is an award-winning, patented, and fast-moving conversation game that helps families and educators open the door to more productive dialogue. The game is fun to play and will amuse youngsters while they learn a lot about themselves and each other. It reinforces the importance of developing strong character traits and encourages good, principle-based decision making. Whether the game is played to encourage lively conversation or for fun around the family room coffee table, family members will take away life-changing behavioral skills and tools that they can use in everyday life situations and relationships."

Overall, if you have a child that you want to know what/how they think about situations that come up or if you have a child that finds it hard to open up.....this is the game for you! I know we enjoyed playing it.  You can purchase it HERE!

Ozeri Tower Fan Review

This morning I am reviewing Ozeri's Oscillating Tower Fan!

I am going to jump right into it.....this fan is AMAZING!!! I absolutely love this fan and I am so sad that I did not purchase it sooner!!! It is easy to assemble because all you have to do is snap the base together and then screw in the extension column and then the fan! That is all there is to it! My 5 year old son and I had a fin time "working" on this fan to put it together!

The fan is 42" tall and it is so QUIET! I couldn't believe how quiet this fan is! It has an amazing display on the top which holds the remote as well. The fan has three speed settings and also a timer. You can choose to have it oscillate or not, depending on what you prefer or need at the time. With how quiet it is....i expected that the speed would be slow and not as efficient as what I wanted/needed! I was pleasantly surprised! The quietness is perfect and the speed and efficiency is absolutely GREAT!!! I couldn't ask for a better fan.

The one thing that I can say about the fan that caught my eye is that it is kind of "wiggly" on carpet.....not as stable as I Would like it to be.

Another great aspect to this fan is that you do not have to put the extension column on. So you can adjust the site with or without the extension column! I like that too because it gives me options. Here is a picture of the fan WITH the extension column in place....my 5 year old son is standing next to it for height comparison (he is holding the remote, too)!

All around this fan is absolutely amazing! I would suggest it for ANYONE! Not only is it great for a living room, but a nursery or office space would be a great place for this fan because of how quiet it is! So if you are looking for quality and durability this fan is the one for you!

I did want to share with you what the company says about their fan:
  • Boasts a sophisticated and stylish space-saving design that complements and enhances room decor.
  • Engineered to generate more air velocity with less noise on a foot-per-minute to dB basis, setting a new benchmark for noiseless airflow.
  • Features 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort, and 3 whisper-quiet speed settings with 90 degree oscillation for optimal air circulation.
  • Includes 12 hour timer that can be programmed in 1 hour increments with push-button ease, and an enhanced-range remote control that conveniently stores in the fan.
  • Easy to assemble (no tools required). Ships with fan, base, extension column (to customize fan height), enhanced-range remote control, manual and warranty card. Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Designed for 5 Star resorts, the new Ozeri Ultra 42" Wind Fan boasts a sophisticated and stylish ultra-slim tower design and one of the most impressive feature sets among tower fans. The Ozeri Ultra Wind’s stylish design complements and enhances room decor, and its precise engineering generates more air velocity than competing models while emitting less noise on a foot-per-minute to dB basis. Setting a new benchmark for noiseless airflow, the Ozeri Ultra Wind Fan operates at 3 whisper-quiet speed settings and oscillates 90 degrees for timely relief on a sweltering summer day or for refreshing circulation all year long. The Ozeri Ultra Wind Fan also includes 3 selectable airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort, and an intelligent LED screen with room temperature display. 

All of the Tower Fan's features, including the room temperature display, are illuminated on the Fan's multi-colored bright LED screen, and can be activated via the included enhanced-range remote or via the built-in control panel. The new and improved LED screen now features a light-dimming night mode that dims the screen for light sensitive sleepers. The Ozeri Ultra Wind Fan also features a 12 hour timer that can be programmed in 1 hour increments with push-button ease, and ships included with a removable extension column that adjusts the Fan's height from 32" to 42".

How it works

The Ozeri Ultra 42" Wind Fan features top-side buttons that provide easy access to all of the fan’s features, such as setting the fan speed , activating any of the 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns, or programming the 12 hour timer. All of the fans features can also be controlled while relaxing via the included extended-range remote control device. The Ozeri Ultra 42" Wind Fan only requires hand assembly of the fan base and optional column using the included large nuts, with no special tools required. Once assembled, simply plug into a standard 120V AC outlet for plug and play enjoyment.
