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.

Majestic Bombay Slant Expert Tweezers Review

Today I am reviewing Majestic Bombay's Slant Tweezers.

I have been in need of a new set of tweezers for a long time and have been searching for a pair that was actually successful at removing my eyebrow hairs with just one pluck. I have tried so many of them at this point.....I thought it was a lost cause! I figured why not give these a try.....

Well, I am so happy I did! I FINALLY found a pair that I actually like! Majestic Bombay's tweezers are stainless steel! I love that because I like to know that my tweezers are going to be durable and not bend out of shape or too far apart! I, also, like to rinse my tweezers when I am done with them and so having stainless steel tweezers is a must!

The best part about these tweezers is that they actually work! I don't have to grab the same hair 10 times before I can pluck it out! I grab once and pluck and done! These have made eye brow plucking a much quicker process. Another huge advantage is that there is a LIFETIME GUARANTEE on them! Personally, I love the color too! ;)

So if you are looking for some reliable, durable pair of tweezers.....you have found them here!

Here is a few things that the company lists about their product:

  • Perfectly aligned tips

Pure Raspberry Ketones Review

Today I am reviewing Pure Raspberry Ketones

As I am sure everyone else has......I have heard a lot about Raspberry Ketones and their ability to aid in weight loss. I have been debating giving them a try, but when I looked for them....I was overwhelmed, to say the least, by the amount of different products and brands! So I did some more research on what to look for and what NOT to look for. Dr. Oz is a big advocate for raspberry ketones and their aid in weight loss regimens. That is where I initially heard about them. So I decided to start there! I found, A good quality product should be pure, many options mix ketones with other ingredients or as a combo. So I decided that I want a pure formula. This product has the purest mix, I have found. Just the Raspberry Ketones and capsule that holds the them.

Then I had to decide how much to take and how often! The bottles suggests one capsule, two times daily, 30 minutes before meals with 6 oz. of water. After reading around....I found that using this dose would be adequate for me because I don't have a lot of  weight to lose. However I did read if you are heavier, a larger dose is needed. When taking Raspberry Ketones, you need food to feed that energy. I drink a lot of water, cut down my pop drinking and (try to) eat more fruits and vegetables. 

Now many of you may wonder what really makes this product work? The KEY IS EXERCISE. While you can take it and it will burn fat, you WILL see much better results when you combine it with exercise. You will really burn more fat and feel it. 

I want to also mention the appetite suppression that comes with taking this product! I noticed it the first day! I almost forgot to eat! I can say I love that part the most. Also, I love that this product does NOT contain the added ingredients that most do that are added to boost your energy.....i don't like those ingredients because they usually make me jittery and agitate my anxiety. This product does NOT do that! Plus I think the BEST part is that this is a NATURAL product!!! 

I did want to share with you what the company has to say about the product:

What is Raspberry Ketone Extract?
Raspberry Ketone is a phenolic compound, which is naturally found in berry fruits like raspberries, also known as Rheosmin, and chemically known as 4-(4-Hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanone. It is the primary compound responsible for the fruity aroma of raspberries, and is often used as a fragrance and flavoring agent for cosmetics, perfumes, foods, and beverages.
How Does it Work?
In Vivo and In Vitro studies have shown that Ketones increase Fatty Acid Oxidation and stimulate Adiponectin, which is a protein involved in regulating Glucose Level and Fatty Acid Oxidation. It burns body fat and converts it into energy the body needs. In this way, it helps the body to control appetite making it an appetite suppressant. Raspberry Ketones work as an efficient weight loss supplement when combined with a balanced diet and exercise. During exercise the body requires extra energy to burn fat, and if you’re taking Raspberry Ketones, existing body fat is burned and converted into the energy needed for exercise. Raspberry Ketones also stimulate the secretion of Adinopectin (Enzyme). This supports and boosts your metabolism, which converts food into energy and will help in storing less food and fat in the body.
Raspberry Ketones and Garcinia Cambogia Work Synergistically As Weight Loss Supplements
Raspberry Ketones increase the level of Adiponectin, a protein responsible for the oxidation of body fat and convert fat into free energy for the body to use in a way that controls appetite. The fat blocker Garcinia Cambogia inhibits the enzyme Citrate Lyase, which is a key enzyme in making fat from food. It also increases the level of the Serotonin hormone, which is known as a mood elevator hormone and appetite controller. So the combined effect is additive because one blocks the formation of fat and the other burns the fat and converts it into energy, which body can utilize to preform regular activity without taking additional food. We strongly recommend a balanced diet and regular exercise to achieve best weight loss result.
Why Our Products?
Because they are pure, natural Raspberry Ketones, not synthesized in a lab, but extracted from natural sources. 250 MG, 120 capsules, no additives, no binders, no fillers and no artificial ingredients. Quality is tested and standardized against the monographs in USP/NF.
Have you tried Raspberry Ketones? What do you think? Looking to try them? Heard of any other great weight loss aids? Let me know in the comments!

Vacay Water Enhancer Review

This evening I am reviewing.....Vacay Water Enhancer!

This water enhancer is a powder that you add to your water and it helps to calm and relax you when you drink it. Vacay has a lemonade flavor and honestly....it tastes GOOD! I thought it would taste medicine-y or vitamin-y but it doesn't.

I mixed mine up today after coming home from work. I had a very stressful day at work and was very worked up and annoyed by the time I got home. I thought, what better time to give this a try! I was pleased to feel much calmer and less stressed by the end of my first glass!

My husband got called into work today as well to deal with some problems. He was very stressed and frustrated when he got home from work so I had him sit down and drink a glass while he was explaining to me what had happened. By the end of our conversation, I could tell that much of the tension and stress that was weighing on his shoulders was gone! Now, I do know that part of that could just have been talking it out and getting it off his chest but I think the Vacay helped too!

I want to share with you a few things that the company says about their product:

"Vacay was created for people that just love to chill. It’s no mystery that just as many people like to chill compared to those that like to consume energy drinks. In our eyes, there wasn’t a single relaxation beverage product on the market that had exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a product that tasted sweet and was all natural with no harmful preservatives, inexpensive with multiple servings in 1 package, and small enough that we could carry in our pocket for whenever we needed to chill. Since many people use the phrase “I need a Vacay” when they are stressed out, we decided this was the perfect name for our beverage mixer, now people can #drinkvacay whenever they need to get away. In late 2013 Vacay was put into motion and it is our mission to provide an inexpensive #vacay to everyone that needs to escape the daily stress of life.

What does Vacay™ taste like?  Vacay™ tastes like the perfect combination of iced tea and lemonade mixed together, which some like to call an Arnold Palmer.  Not too sweet, but just sweet enough with no tart or artificial aftertaste.  Just add more or less to your glass of water to match your taste preference.
The premium functional ingredient blend for Vacay™ consists of l-theanine, chamomile, and passion flower. Sweetened with stevia combined with an all natural lemonade flavor, Vacay™ turned out to be a delicious dietary supplement/beverage that helps to Relieve Stress & Anxiety, Ease Tension, and Calm The Mind.  All of the ingredients for Vacay™ are sourced from a reputable public company that does independent testing for quality and consistency.
