Have a spa day at home with this facial sauna #Liftcare

I have a new addition in my household.  Actually it is a new addition to my makeup table. 

It is something that not only clears out my pores, makes my face feel great, but promotes blood circulation and provides hydration to my face. 


This new addition is a home facial steamer sauna.  It is simple to use, while it doesn’t come with a booklet of instructions – it is self explanatory. 


I just fill it up to the water line, I turn it on for about 5 minutes to let it get steaming properly- then I sit down in front of it, lying my chin on the rest and use it for about 2 minutes.  That is all it takes. 


This spa like sauna has low or high power, so you can choose what works best for you.  It also comes with a bottle of Eucalyptus Essential oil.  Drop a couple drops in your water for a even better experience!

The use of oils with this will help you with tired eyes and so much more. 

They have a small but informative pamphlet in with this when you receive it.  It tells you about the different skin types and how long you should use the machine.  Not only will it tell you how long, then it gives you a process on what to do to treat it.


This is really a great tool to have on my makeup table. I really love it!  If you are interested in reading more about this product or even purchasing your own – It is available on Amazon

A backup camera for your car! Less then $20.00!

A couple years ago we had a van that had a backup camera in it.  While I had never used one before, I came to rely on it.  Once we got rid of the van we ended up with vehicles that wasn’t equipped with a back up camera.  I still miss it.  Especially when I am in a congested parking spot, like the grocery store or some other shopping adventure I am on.

Then I was asked to review a back up camera!  It is from ESKY and is a one button control.  This came has a 170 degree wide viewing angle.  The camera is waterproof and has night vision. 


Installation is simple.

1.  Mount it to your license plate, back window or wherever you would like it.

2.  Adjust the lens

3.  Connect power wire (they are red and black and comes with it) to your vehicle’s DC 12 Power system

4.  Then connect the yellow cord, which is the video output, to display in your vehicle.

I love anything that comes with color coded wires and instructions with where to put those colored wires.

As far as the camera itself.  It works.  Would I say it was as nice as the one made in the van we had previously owned.  No.  Would this be something that works well enough for me to want to purchase it.  Yes.  It is a tool that helps me feel more comfortable when I am out and backing up.  While I still use my mirrors, this may help me from backing into something that I didn’t see in the mirror.  It gives me a safer feeling when I am out.

If you are interested in purchasing or finding out more about this backup camera, you can find it on Amazon.

Faux wood Diffuser makes my home so relaxing!





With 5 cats, 2 dogs and a smoker in my home, I am always scared that some kind of odor may linger.  Especially when company is coming over or showing up unexpectedly.  I guess this makes me more observant and ready to try the newest odor eliminators.  Sprays and plug ins and everything in between.  I have tried. Some I liked, some I didn’t.  Then I started seeing diffusers and I really wanted one. 


Since I found out about the diffusers I have tried several.  My all time favorite is the one from #esZENtials.  This diffuser is Faux wood. That is the first thing that caught my eye.  If I hadn’t felt it, I would’ve swore it was real wood.  The only way anyone would really know it wasn’t real wood is if they went over and picked it up.  There is only one person I know that might’ve done that and that was my Mom.  She used to see something she liked, grab at it and say “where did you get that”.  She is gone now, but will live forever in my heart. 

The diffuser really fits into my rustic décor.  It is also easy to use.  Just sit it where you want it.  Take the top off.  Fill it to the water line (with the enclosed cup)  add a few drops of your favorite oil.  Place the top back on.  Plug it in.  Decide which color light you would like.  I like the colors changing, but you can pick one color and leave it at that. There is sooo many nice ones to choose from!  Then decide how long you want it to run.  There is 3 choices.  1 hour – 3 hours or 6 hours.


Once you choose you just sit back and enjoy.  It doesn’t make any noise.

Does it make a difference?  Yes it does!  I fixed mine where I wanted it while John was outside.  A little bit later he came inside and said it smelled great in the house.  He didn’t know I had the diffuser going since I decided to sit it around the corner out of view of the door.  I told him and he couldn’t believe it.  That was my proof that it makes a difference.  Now I am able to feel more confident when friends come over. 

This is available on Amazon.

If you are looking into getting a diffuser, this is the one I would suggest.  I am adding a video to this post.  Please forgive my video skills!  But you can see more about it in it.

Hey Bakers! Check out this stainless steel Rolling Pin!


This one is for all those Bakers out there.  What kind of rolling pin do you currently own?  Most I have seen is the regular wooden ones.  When I was growing up, my mom could cook just about anything.  While she could bake just about whatever she wanted, she didn’t always have the proper tools. This didn’t stop her.  I remember her rolling out biscuits with a glass.


When I got in a stainless steel rolling pin from #RollMaster, I couldn’t help but think of my Mom.  What she would’ve thought of this pin.  I know I tried it out and I really liked it a lot.  For a couple simple reasons.  The first being that my dough doesn’t stick to it.  And it is so easy to clean up after using it.  Some of the wood or bamboo pins gets dough stuck in the creases and it is so hard to get it properly clean.  This pin is dishwasher safe and in fact is healthier then most pins, due to the nonporous surface.

It is also easy on the wrists when rolling.  That is because the handle bars helps with the pressure on your wrists.

This rolling pin would be perfect for just about one.  Buy one for yourself or give it to your favorite Foodie or Baker.  It comes in a nice gift worthy box.


It is available on Amazon:

36 colored drawing pencils


When I was younger I used to like to draw.  I never stuck with it enough to develop any talents I might have had.  Sometimes I wish I had of.  While I have gotten older and taking time out to even try to paint or draw is rare, I still catch myself looking at shapes.  At how things are drawn.  At colors.  At other peoples work.  I still drool over sketch books and paints and all that fun stuff.

When I had the chance to do a review for 36 colored pencils from JM Art, I jumped at the chance.


I love the tube like container these pencils come in.  This makes for easy storage. 

Inside there was 36 pencils of any color I may want to use, even silver and gold.  The pencils didn’t draw dark, but on the lighter side.  I like that, it gave me the control to go lighter or darker when using them.  They seemed to go smooth on the paper and did a decent job. 


I think these do a decent job for the price they are charging for them on Amazon.  $11.99.  They would be perfect no matter if you are a housewife who is looking to take some time and do something for herself.  A professional that needs to draw or color in during the day.  Or a student. 

The packaging makes it easy to take them with you whenever you travel.

Great Adult sleeping bag!

Sunday is the first day of spring!  I am super excited!  What do you think of when you think of spring?  If you are like me, you probably think of the great outdoors.

The sun and nice weather.  The planting of flowers and the starting of the garden.  Picnics, fishing and even camping.

It has been such a long time since I actually went camping.  I would like to do it again sometime.  The last time I went I slept in an RV, but would love to be able to lay in a tent or even the open and look at the sky.  I am like a chipmunk lately, hoarding anything that I may one day use on a big camping adventure.  Lanterns and picnic blankets, even a sleeping bag. 


Being a BBW I have to find a bag that is going to work for me.  I will be on the lookout!  John already has one.  I wish I could use it!  The one he has is one I recently reviewed.  It is a bag from EGOZ.  This blue sleeping bag looks really nice.  I love it because it is washable.  John really likes it because it is comfortable on the inside.  There is plenty of room for him.  He is about 5’9 and weighs somewhere around 180 lbs. 

He in fact got in it one day and took a nap.  He had no problem getting in, zipping up and unzipping when he got up.  He stayed warm and comfortable. 

While this bag is great for sleeping out, it is also great for other things.  For childrens slumber parties or unexpected over night guests.  Spread it out in the yard and sit down on it.  It is easy to roll up when you are done with it and only weights around 3 lbs.


Yes, I am looking forward to spring.  I love the change of the seasons and each one has something that I am grateful to experience. 

What are you looking forward to this season?

USB 2.0 External Drive DVD VCD CD RW Drive Burner

I will be the first to admit that when it comes to tech, I love to use it.  But when something goes wrong, I go running.  For example, 2 days ago I went to turn my television on.  Sound was coming out but no picture.  So I asked my good friend Google what I should do.  It told me to unplug it for a minute and turn it back on.  Easy enough.  I done that several times.  So I read what to do if that don’t work.  The instructions was to pull my 65” television out and remove the back. That is where I panicked.  It was giving me instructions about a bulb or something inside.  I knew I couldn’t do it, John was about as knowledgeable as I was with that.  So we had to make a decision.

A.) Go without Television

B.)  Get in our emergency money and buy a new television

We chose option B.  Which landed with us downsizing to a 55” tv, but this one is a smart tv, I guess the other one was dumb?


I knew I would be the one rehooking cable and all the other devices we have so I told John I would unhook each thing and put it straight in the tv.  I thought it was a plan, but it wasn’t.  I guess the back was different so things needed hooked up different.  It took me several hours but I finally got the cable hooked up.   The next day I managed the dvd player and ROKU.  Our WII that we didn’t use anyways is now  stored for some other time.

That is just one example of me and hooking a tech item.

The laptop I am using has been without a CD Rom for awhile now, mainly because I didn’t know how to fix it when it stopped.  It has been a pain not having it but I have managed.  Then I heard about a external CD Rom, DVD from a company called Novapolt.  I really wanted it but just wasn’t sure if it would involve me doing a lot of work to get it to work.

It came in the mail and I opened the box.  Wondering who I knew that would help me to get it working right.  To my surprise I didn’t have to do anything to get it going!  Well, I did have to stick a USB cord in the side of my laptop.

It plays discs really well, as well as software – it even burns disc.  I really wish I had of known about this sooner. 


Here is more info about it from the company:

treat your face with this ultra plumping hydration mask!

Do you want to spoil yourself, well at least your face?  If you are anything like me, the day can take a toll on you and your skin.  Sometimes it feels good to pamper ourselves.  I know sometimes finding the 15-30 minutes to pamper ourselves can be next to impossible.  But if it helps us in the long run, aren’t we worth it?

One way you can spoil yourself and keep your skin healthy is by using a product called Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask.  My face is already plump haha – but now it is softer and plump.  In fact the other morning I wake up and look over at John.  He pinches my cheek and says, “ Good Morning Apple Jaws!”  I smiled because I know that was his way of being sweet and I liked the compliment!


This mask is from a company called Valentia.  It comes in a very sophisticated looking gold and white box.  Inside that box is a nice gold and white jar.  When you open the jar you are going to smell something wonderful, at least I thought it smelled wonderful.  Maybe that is from the key ingredients?  Japanese green tea, Rosehip seed oil and aloe Vera. 

When you look in the jar you may not be flattered.  It looks like a jar of fat.  Jelly looking yellowish goop.  But it smells good enough to make you want to slather it on your face! 


It says to put it on for 15- 30 minutes.  I have been doing it 30 minutes 2 times a week.  It washes off super easy and my face feels so good when it is done.  I really am enjoying this product and it is something I would continue to use.

Brian Bear is a Ready Set Go Bear!

Ready.  Set.  Go.

What does those 3 words mean to you?  I guess if you had said them to me before I would’ve waited for a race of some sort to start or something to begin.  Now when I hear them I think of something else.  Let me tell you about it!

Get READY to overcome your fears.

SET your goals high AND

GO out there and be the best you can be!


Now meet Brian.  He is a Super hero bear.  Brian is here to spread the above message to anyone that needs to hear it.  Brian is a cute soft yellow bear.  He is so soft and cuddly and I fell in love with him the moment he showed up on my doorstep.  Brian is a superhero and no super hero can function without their cape and blindfold right?  Brian has a cute black blindfold that can be taken off or left on.  He has a red cape that has the words Ready Set Go printed on it.  These words are also on the foot of Brian the bear. 


While you can use these bears for many different children and different circumstances, I love the fact that these bears can be used to boost children that may be bullied or have low self esteem. 

Like everybody, Brian has his own story.  You see Once upon a time Brian was a average bear.  He wasn’t a happy bear either.  He didn’t have many friends and he didn’t like to go to school. He felt like he wasn’t any good at anything, he had trouble reading and all his classmates seemed to do everything better then him. 

One day Brian’s world changed.  He met an elderly lady while walking home from school.  He was kind of afraid but there was something about the lady that he trusted.  She told him not to be afraid.  To close his eyes and say, “ get ready to overcome my fears!  Set my goals high and to always be the best I can be!” 


When Brian opened his eyes he was different!  The lady was gone.  Brian had turned into the Ready Set Go Bear!!!  Around his neck he found a pendant.  On the pendant it also has ready set go.  When he sees it it reminds him to always face his fears and be his best.


The necklace is meant to come off Brian for your child to wear.  This will help your child to be the superhero that you already know he is.


Carol Cooper is the Founder of the Ready Set Go Bears.  While I have Brian there is also a Brianna. 

If this sounds like something you would like to give to someone special in your life, be sure and check out the website and learn more about them. 

These really are not just ordinary plushies.  They have meaning behind them.  I think they would make a great item to put with Easter Baskets, for birthdays or just because.  Be sure and check out their website READY SET GO BEARS, like  them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter 

Brian also comes in this cute see through read drawstring bag with his story and several pieces of  info on self esteem.
