Raaya Multi-Use Peeler Review


I was asked by Tomoson.com to review the Raaya Multi-Use Peeler.  This thing is awesome!  I have never owned a hand-held peeler like this.  It allows you to make thick or thin strips of vegetables, fruits, hard cheeses and chocolate.

Tonight I used the peeler to make potato chips as well as julienne carrots and zucchini which we ate over rice.

This peeler is made with anti-bacterial stainless steel and is durable and safe for dishwasher use.  That’s  a huge plus!  It also comes with a little scrub brush.

20160809_194925I really enjoy using this peeler!  You can use it for so many things!

Arvidsson LED Light Bulb Review

Hello again!  I was contacted by Arvidsson which is an Amazon retailer that sells Vintage light bulbs and was asked to test and review their Arvidsson LED Vintage Edison [Sapphire] Filaments Bulb 4W 400Lumens [CRI90+] Dimmable [1800K Romantic Warm Glow] ST64/ST21 [Anti-Glare Clear Glass].

I really like this light bulb because it gives the room a warm yellow glow which makes for a nice ambiance. I also like that the shape of the light bulb is different than regular light bulbs. I showed my friend this light bulb and he said that his sister and her husband have their house decorated in an older fashion. He added that they use older light bulbs in their home and that he advised his sister that she shouldn’t use those because of how much energy they use up. I told him that these bulbs are LED bulbs and do save on energy and he said that he would let his sister know about them and he was excited to hear that they existed.

Here is the product link if you’re interested in reading more about this bulb and/or purchasing the product:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HCLG7O2

I received this product free for testing and review purposes and all opinions are my own.

Dove Advanced Care Deodorant Review

Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope you guys are enjoying your weekend.  I had the pleasure of receiving Dove Advanced Care Deodorant in the mail for FREE from HouseParty.com’s Chatterbox!

20160807_131054

HouseParty.com allows you to apply to host parties which feature different brands for you and your friends to try out and give feedback on.  I have hosted a handful of parties thanks to HouseParty with the following brands:  Redbook/L’Oreal Paris Happy Hour Party where I received 30 of each item to giveaway to guests: L’Oreal liquid lipstick, a Redbook subscription for you and a friend, samples of L’Oreal Revitalift eye cream and face cream and L’Oreal shampoo and conditioner. The host typically gets their own goody(ies) as a perk for hosting, and I received the L’Oreal Revitalift eye cream which I am almost done using up.

I also hosted a Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin book party which included a book for myself and one to give away, autograph book plates, bookmarks, calendars, excerpts from the book, 2 cell phone cases to give away AND if you post a photo of yourself with the book or with a goal that you set for yourself, the author would send you a free copy of the book.

And I also hosted a Silk & NutriBullet party where they sent me a Magic Bullet NutriBullet Pro, gobs and gobs of coupons for Silk Yogurt and Milk so that I could get supplies for my party to make smoothies with and have a ton to give to guests, 20% off NutriBullet coupons, good quality glass smoothie mason jars with smoothie spoons and smoothie recipes books for the guests.  As the host I received silicone ice cube trays and measuring cups, a cutting board, and powdered greens to put into the smoothies.  HouseParty offers such a wide variety of parties that you can host and I’ve had a lot of fun hosting these parties. I hope to continue to get opportunities to do so.

Chatterbox is very similar except that you aren’t obligated to have a party to share goodies and/or information about the product that you received.  I have to say I’m a big fan of both options.  I love having little get-togethers at my house and being able to throw a HouseParty theme into the mix makes it more fun AND my friends get to walk away with cool new stuff for FREE!

So, back to today’s featured product.  I have been a Dove fan for years!  I’ve been using Dove my entire adulthood, except for when I do my couponing and happen to find a deodorant on sale or something.  I love Dove because it keeps me clean and dry so I was very excited when I got chosen to receive their Advanced Care formula as my very first Chatterbox!  As you can see in the photo above, they only gave out 1,500 of these to try so I am very happy to be one of those people that was selected. I tried it out for a good week or two and I must say I noticed that it did a great job at keeping me clean and sweat free.  I would definitely recommend this deodorant if you want to feel confident that you will stay fresh throughout the day.

Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifier Review

So I was lucky enough to qualify and get chosen for the Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifier Influenster VoxBox. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect because during these dry winter months the Humidifier helps so much with dry throats, coughing, dry nasal passages, etc. It’s pretty quiet while it runs, and I don’t have to fill the water tank very often which is also a plus.  It’s also a nice compact size so it doesn’t take up too much room in my living room. I think my next step is going to be buying a device that reads the humidity level in the room. That way I can keep the humidity at a good level all the time. Thanks again Influenster for the free Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifier that you sent to me for review purposes. 🙂

Tazo Chai is quite delicious!

My Tazo Tea Smiley360 Mission Box

As you may know if you follow my blog, I’m a member of Smiley360 where I get to try and review items for FREE! This morning I am trying out  Tazo Chai Vanilla Caramel Latte from concentrate. I’ve tried their tea bags as well and I think those are tasty too. This particular flavor had the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I mixed mine with one part tea, one part milk. You can use any kind of milk you’d like such as: almond, soy, coconut, regular milk, etc. I chose to use whole milk as that is what I have at the house right now.  I tried it cold before putting it in the microwave and it was really good. I heated it up because it feels cozier to have a warm drink and I love warm chai. I really enjoy it.  It’s creamy with a little spice; just how I like it! I was able to find this at my local Target.

I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in a Smiley360 Tazo Tea Twitter Party a couple weeks ago.  At the parties they ask you questions then they randomly pick people who answer the questions. I was chosen by answering the 4th question which was Show us your favorite mug that you drink your Tazo Tea from. The Christmas mug featured on this blog is the winning mug! I was one of 8 people to win a year supply of Tazo Tea!

Go get yourself some Tazo Tea, you don’t know what you’re missing. 🙂

Folgers Flavor Enhancers are tasty!

Folgers Flavor Enhancers at work

Folgers Flavor Enhancers at work

I tried the vanilla Folgers Flavor Enhancer today for the first time and I really liked the taste. It’s a convenient way for me to flavor my coffee anytime, any place, without using creamer. I felt the taste wasn’t too overpowering or too sweet. I’m looking forward to trying the other flavors (caramel and mocha). I’m not a huge Hazelnut fan but my boyfriend is so I know he will be using that one a lot. He did try the caramel one and said the flavor stood out to him and he really liked it.  One of my coworkers tried mocha with caramel and he said that was a nice combination, tastes great,  and does a good job of flavoring the coffee. The only downfall for me is that it has preservatives in it. I’m a member of the Crowdtap Folgers® rewards program, and Folgers sent me a sample of its Folgers Flavors™ Coffee Enhancers to review.
