Lally Professional Makeup Brushes

I really needed a good set of makeup brushes as mine are old and needing to be replaced. I did like these brushes, but do want to mention that they are travel sized brushes and not full size. That didn’t deter me, however, as they are still a nice quality brush. They also come in a very nice travel case that keeps them nice for when you are traveling and even when you are not.

The brushes themselves are on the shorter side, but this doesn’t take away from their quality. I personally prefer brushes to be a bit longer, but am okay with these being on the shorter side because they are new (and the ones I have are not), and they are great quality!

The case these brushes come in is very nice and of a great quality leather. The brushes fit very nice in this case and don’t jiggle around too much and would be very safe and cozy in the event you’d take them with you on a trip. The case is also very easy to get into and I enjoy just storing my brushes in the case and on my makeup stand.

The brushes themselves are lovely- heavy duty, pretty, wood handles and they have natural and synthetic bristles. I have not experienced any shedding with these brushes either, which is a huge plus! I really dislike when my brushes start shedding out all over the place. These are definitely not cheaply made brushes and you can definitely tell this when you are using them.

Overall, this is a great brush set. All the brushes work well and leave a nice flawless application. I would definitely recommend these brushes to anyone looking for a fantastic set of brushes (specifically travel sized).

Interactive Cat Dancer Toy

We have three cats and they are quite frisky! Two are one year old and the other is 13 years old- yes she’s frisky at her older age! They all love toys, and if it has catnip in it they are super interested!

Our kitties love to run and play and chase and fetch and anything else you can dream up, they do it. They are almost dog-like in the way they behave sometimes! I saw this toy and just knew they would love it. They love any kinds of toy that they can toss around, drag around, carry around, lick at and bat at.
When this toy came in the mail they all went bananas. I didn’t even have to guess what was in the package. The mouse toy cat wand itself was super cute and adorable and they absolutely love it.

I couldn’t get near this mouse toy dancer for hours as they wouldn’t stop running after it (one would drag it around by the cord) and each other for this mouse! This is one of the most popular toys in the house. It’s also one of the cutest toys in the house.

Overall, this toy was an absolute hit and I would definitely buy this toy again, but one for each next time!

GL-Sail 36 Pack Diamante Tipped Gel Pens

These GL-Sail Premium Gel Color Pens for Arts & Crafts come in 36 different assorted colors. You get
12 Glitter, 12 Neon and 12 Pastel colors. There are no repeated colors in the case and the pen tips range from 0.8-1.0 mm Fine Tip. The colors are bold and vibrant, and never bleed through paper. These pens also come in a very nice and sturdy plastic case that holds everything in place.

These pens are really great for scrap booking, drawing, coloring (those adult coloring books!), various crafts, doodling, decorating, and so much more. You can use these pens for just about anything you can think of.

These pens are really good quality, the pens have such a nice fine tip to them and the ink flows right out of them from the first use. I absolutely love the super fine tip to these pens as it makes for such nice writing and crafting. I also find that these pens work wonderfully when I’m coloring in my adult coloring books. They get into small areas perfectly and make the whole picture look fantastic. I also love the colors you get with these pens. They are so colorful and look so beautiful on the page.

I also love the case that these pens come in. The plastic case helps keep your pens together and organized. You can carry them with you easily and you definitely don’t have to worry about losing them when they are all together in a nice case.

30 Pokemon Random Card lot Featuring MEW and 1 Random Ultra Rare!

My son is absolutely in love with anything Pokemon (he’s 7) and when I got these in the mail, he flipped out with excitement! He was thrilled with all the cards he got and said he got some really good and “rare” ones. I don’t know that I can actually vouch for that, but he was thrilled none-the-less! He doesn’t play the game, but likes to look at the damage each character can do and what the hit points are, etc.

These cards would be perfect for anyone who collects Pokemon cards, for beginners, and even for the more advanced. The cards came packaged perfectly, and were in great shape.

I also lived that in these 30 cards, there were no duplicates. Each card was unique and there were foils, unique cards, at least 1 rare, and more. I can definitely appreciate these cards as they are works of art to look at.

My son spent a lot of time sorting, organizing, and comparing all the cards that came in this set. Afterwards, he put them in his binder according to his organizing ways (which I don’t quite understand, but then again he’s just 7). In the end, as long as he’s loving these cards and having fun, I’m a happy mom!

Kitchen Maestro Pizza Scissors

We eat a lot of pizza in my house and we have a lot of different pizza cutters, however we have never seen any kind of pizza cutters like these pizza scissors! These pizza scissors are so cool! I would never have thought to cut a pizza with scissors before. I really think these pizza scissors would be great for kids (with supervision) and adults alike.

I really like that you can easily cut the right size slice with these scissors and I like how easy it is to actually cut the pizza with these scissors. I thought, at first, it would be awkward to cut a pizza with scissors, but really it’s not at all; It just works.  

The scissors have a nice bottom slice measurement piece that’s attached to the scissors so you can easily cut a portion of pizza. It’s made to be very strong and sturdy and holds up well. The scissors themself are large and can easily cut a nice large pizza. It does take a little practice to use them at first, but after cutting a few slices, I got it down pat.

Also, these scissors were super easy to clean in the dishwasher. I wouldn’t want to clean them by hand, but in the dishwasher they were a breeze to wash up.

TheMagicLift Wrinkle Filler

I have wanted to try the Magic Life Wrinkle Filler for quite some time. The first time I tried this product I used just a little bit without makeup on. I could tell a difference in just a short time. My under eye area tightened up a bit and I did notice a small improvement with the bags under my eyes- they were actually reducing!

The next time I used the Magic Lift product, I used my power foundation over top of it after it dried and it worked very well. I couldn’t tell that I had used the Magic Lift product and my face looked so great, for once.

I haven’t tried the product with liquid foundation yet, but will eventually and update this review. I typically just use powder foundation and eye makeup. But that being said, this product worked well under that and lasted for most of the day. I was pretty impressed with the results I achieved and loved the way my face looked after use. If only the results were permanent!

I really like this product and love that it comes in little containers. You just need to twist the cap to get the product out and once you are done with the product, you can turn the cap around to pop back into place for future use. This is a great way to save product as there isn’t any waste.

This product is a great way to temporarily reduce the look of wrinkles, fine lines, and bags. If you want to look great for an event, or just to go out, this product will work wonders for you!

Cardiotabs - Omega-3 Lemon Minis + Vitamin D3


These Omaga-3 Lemon Minis + Vitamin D3, 1050mg Omega-3 and 600 IU vitamin D3 is a highly concentrated omega-3 softgel that is small and actually has a decent taste to it. I really like that these omega-3’s are so small as it makes them much easier to swallow.

You need to take 3 of these softgels a day for your serving and that’s really not that bad considering how small they are. They also don’t taste bad at all; you can just taste a hint of lemon, which I like.

My doctor has recommended Omega-3 for me in the past when I’ve complained of joint pain and when asking how to lower my cholesterol without medications. I do feel that this supplement has helped a little with my joint pain and I haven’t had a recheck of my cholesterol yet, but hopefully that will come back lower when I do have it rechecked. I do take this product along with exercise.

These softgels have a 2:1 ratio of DJA to EPA which supports healthy brain and cardiovascular function. These softgels also help support a healthy immune system and bone health with the added vitamin D3 in these. This product is also independently tested, according to their website, and certified to be pure from contaminates and heavy metals, including mercury and lead.

In a general sense, this product works to support heart, eye, brain, joint, triglyceride, blood pressure, immune and overall health. Do keep in mind that the statements this product makes haven’t been evaluated by the FDA and doesn’t diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

The ingredients in this product include: Highly refined and concentrated omega-3 marine oil from Calamarine and fish oil (squid, anchovy, sardine, mackerel), capsule shell (gelatin, glycerin, purified water), natural lemon flavor, natural mixed tocopherols (soy), cholecalciferol.

Overall, this is a great product and I would highly recommend giving it a try as it seems to be working pretty well for me and probably will for you too.

Cariloha Bath Sheets


Dimensions: 40" x 70"
Extra-smooth, slightly twisted bamboo yarn is loomed perfectly to 600 grams per square meter and features an infusion of special silicon softener, resulting in an even softer, finer hand for increased bamboo-soft comfort.
Cariloha bamboo towel sets are optimized for softness, weight and plushness - not too thin and not too thick - just right.
Fabric Blend: 50% Viscose from Bamboo/ 50% Turkish-combed cotton

This Cariloha Bath Sheet is absolutely and by far the softest towel I’ve ever ‘experienced’ in my life! I’ve never even had a towel this soft at a hotel! These are by far the best luxury towels I’ve ever owned- or rather bath sheets! I really prefer bath sheets as they are so much larger and cover a larger area of the body at a time. This particular bath sheet is absolutely huge!

This towel hangs perfectly on a towel bar and looks like it belongs there. It really makes the bathroom look and feel more luxurious. Once you try this bath sheet, you won’t want to go back to regular towels/ bath sheets again. You just can’t comprehend how soft this towel is until you have it wrapped around your body.

This towel does a great job of soaking up the water from off your body and gets you dry very quickly. Some towels I just give up on because they never seem to get you dry, but this towel really does dry and it does it fairly quick. I just love to leave this towel wrapped around me as I am getting ready as it’s just so super soft and comfy.

Overall, this towel is absolutely a winner in my book. I can’t imagine going back to other towels. This particular bath sheet by Cariloha has me pretty spoiled!

Cariloha - Luxury Organic Bamboo Sheets


I have quite a fondness for sheets, good sheets. I feel like I deserve to be comfortable while I am sleeping and absolutely love soft and luxurious sheets. I have bamboo towels and love them as they are super soft and wonderful. I figured that bamboo sheets would be just the same- soft and comfy. I wasn’t disappointed in these sheets!

These sheets are so unbelievably comfortable, soft, and luxurious. These sheets make me feel like I am sleeping on a wonderful cloud. I have never slept in sheets so soft, smooth, and comfortable. I can’t keep saying enough about these sheets, they are that fantastic!

These sheets do have a rather large price tag, however once you sleep in these sheets; you will overlook that and understand why they cost as much as they do. Another great feature of these sheets is that they seem to regulate temperature- I’m usually cold, but wasn’t in these sheets and my husband who’s always hot wasn’t in these sheets. It’s pretty interesting how these sheets are perfect for two different people!

I did wash these sheets a couple of times before putting them on the bed as they do make a little bit of lint at first. After washing them a few times, the lint was gone and all was good. The sheets fit perfectly over my pillow top mattress and I had no fit issues in any area.

Overall, I would definitely get these sheets again as they are super soft, smooth and comfortable. These are the perfect sheets for everyone.

Cat Tunnel Toy - 3 Way Fun Run to Keep Kitty Entertained


  • Collapsible 3 way tunnel with an irresistible centre peep hole. A playhouse, box and shelter in one
  • Encourages curiosity, play, stalking & exercise, especially with treats and food. Fun videos too!
  • 10" tube diameter fits all cats, each leg is 22" long with a sturdy steel sprung frame
  • Folds down to 2" and 1.5lb for easy storage, transport. No permanent furniture, trees or enclosures
  • Great gift for all cat lovers. Buy now with our 100% purrfect satisfaction and money back guarantee


So this Cat Tunnel Toy – 3 Way Fun Run by Premium Choice Products was something I knew my cats would love. I have three cats, two of which are almost a year old and still very playful. My two youngsters love to run around like crazy and I figured they would love running around and through this 3 way tunnel.

I was right; my cats love this tunnel and have been running in and around it since I pulled it out of the box. The only issues I’ve really had with this tunnel so far was that sometimes the tunnels get twisted around and they can’t go all the way through it, and sometimes it just rolls and moves all over the place. It would be ideal if this tunnel had more rigidity to it to keep it steady as cats aren’t too gentle when they are diving around through the tunnels. I wish the center area had some way of not collapsing inward and a way to keep the tunnels out and separated, if that makes sense? The material itself isn’t as bad as what some people are writing in their reviews. It’s not the best, but it’s not terrible. I don’t have rips or tears in it so far and they’ve been pretty rough on it.

The tunnel is fairly simple to collapse and tie back up for flat storage. There are ties on two of the tunnels so that you can collapse them and close them shut.

All in all, we really love this tunnel- me and my cats. They love to play in it together and I love to watch them chase each other and bat at each other. They also like to drag their toys in there as well.  I do have to keep untwisting the tunnels so they can keep getting through it, but other than that, it’s a pretty great tunnel.
