So typically I buy my shower heads at Walmart or Target just a basic head on a string to replace the one that I leave at the last apartment I moved out of, this time however I am the owner of the home so it's quite a bit more important to me that the shower head isn't a piece of junk. I don't want this head to just last at least until a lease ends, I want this one to be with me for a bit as well no one likes to have to change stuff around the house they just bought. So when presented with the opportunity to try out a shower head with the title of "Luxury Handheld Shower Head" I thought yep, let's do this go fancy enjoy the Luxury of AquaBliss. Now let me give you some of the details from my experience.
From the moment I opened the package I noticed that unlike my previous shower heads this one has a metal chain like cord that attaches to the head. One of my biggest headaches in past purchases was that at times the plastic tubing would get warped and the shower head wouldn't behave as intended and literally spray either to the wall or out of the shower. The metal chain does not kink or warp, it lays as intended everytime I hang it up, so already my biggest gripe is eliminated just from opening the package. My next observation was the size of the little holes that the water sprays out of, they are good sized. In hastily purchased models previously I had very small spray holes albeit they had lots of them, it does not work well if you have hard water, which we do in my area very much. The small holes clog and you have to soak the head in vinegar regularly which is a pain. The hole size is only small in the center region and it could very well just be an optical illusion and they could all be the same size, but the little black gaskets give a larger hole impression on the outside. I have been using it for 3 weeks now without clogs so I am pretty stoked. Even if I have to soak once every couple months its better than once a week with tiny holed shower heads.
After oogling it for quality factor for a bit, I utilized the very handy boyfriend in installation! Yay boyfriend! With camera in hand I video recorded him installing it and it took him under 5 minutes to install it without any leaks. I can't say that is some record, but I can say that it's very easy to install (from my vantage as the camera person) I can genuinely say that the un-handy like myself could very much perform the installation process. Another perk I noticed is that if there are any issues with any of the parts it comes with a warranty which I don't ever remember seeing in any of my quick pull off the shelf previous purchases.
Now finally, would I recommend this to others. Most definitely I like to solid stream and the way to adjust it to my needs. I love the size and the handle and the ease of installation. If you are looking for a new showerhead this is the one for you!

So on a scale of Tylenol fruit flavoring to chalk, which is the kids scale of other probiotics they have taken, they ranked it closer to Tylenol on their flavor index. It wasn't quite as good as a gummy, but it was definitely far easier than a chewable tablet. In all reality the best part about this is that it's quick and easy so it's far more likely to be done. As for it's probiotic ability, well my kids taking it regularly are also "releasing waste" regularly so I am guessing it's doing the intended trick. I didn't notice any sort of cap build up or anything along those lines that happens with the stickier kinds of kids meds so overall I would say its a win.

So the concept is excellent, stab on a veggie and use the handle to make chips or veggie noodles. That being said in practice it didn't work out quite as well as we had hoped with the actual chip making adapter. That being said we did use carrots to try it out as we were trying to make carrot chips. When we later used it for noodle preparation using a softer zucchini it worked as advertised without any trouble. The product was easy to use and easy to clean. It doesn't take up too much space on the counter which I also like very much. I like using it for zucchini and look forward to trying it out for apples and sweet potatoes. I'd also like to try hassleback potatoes with it in the future, despite the fact I haven't yet tried. Overall I would recommend this for anything except very hard carrots turned into chips.

So if you don't know I am all about saving money, that doesn't just mean I store up 2 years worth of laundry soap when it's on sale. I also have been trying my hand at gardening over the last few months with a whole lot of help from my friend Brad! Shout out to Brad and his amazing garden. So when given the opportunity to review pots I thought what a great way to incorporate the love of gardening into my other passion blogging. Above I have a video of the garden and my planned usage for the pots below. I plan to use them for a larger version of floating lettuce bath that you can see in the video. Although the pots featured are not the ones from Pandapots you can definitely get the idea. Key differences between the ones from Pandapots and the ones featured are the ones featured are not full pots they are vented all the way around which is was fine, but I'd like to try to go bigger and don't need it so would like to try do it without. I will update this post in about 30 days after the attempt and let you know how they do.
So first thing that I noticed was that the pots are stacked into stacks of 15 side by side and bagged which was great packaging for shipping. They all seem to be solid no damage or cracking in any of them. They are a great size for my pending herb garden project as well as for individual planting of lettuces and other greens for immediate harvest and use. Each pot has eight irrigation holes in the bottom of them to allow for proper draining, they are slightly larger in diameter than a standard pencil. I think this will be more than adequate for my intents and purposes, but we will see.
These pots are a great option for starting plants you intend to transplant. They wouldn't be ideal for plants such as squash and tomatoes due to the relative size of the plants produced in my personal opinion. So if that is your goal you need to look a few sizes bigger. If you are looking to grow individual flowers for gardening purpose I would also recommend these pots.
Not to forget to mention they are made in the USA so it helps bring businesses back to the US in manufacturing which is definitely something that is needed. Overall, I am recommending these pots for their individual quality, ease of purchase and they are a US made product. Below is an image of the high quality pots and if you have any questions please feel free to leave it in the comments, also any recommendations for the potential of this size pot I'd love to hear it!
I received this dress for review to give my honest opinion, which I did. This post contains affiliated link.
I think I look very classic in this dress, it fit exactly as I expected and honestly had more give than I did expect so that was an additional perk. I am a larger girl, about size 16-18 depending on the dress so I ordered XXL, I could probably have gotten into a XL to be honest however by the amount of give in the fabric, which of course is a major perk. Who wouldn't want to order a smaller size right? I am glad I did get the XXL however because I am also nearly 6 foot tall so it would have been a bit shorter than intended if I hadn't. With the scalloped breast region it gave me plenty of room for my above average chest which is honestly the last thing I expected. Most dresses in this style don't compliment the well endowed ladies at all and you are usually fighting a dress malfunction every other breath. The neckline on this is high enough that you can easily wear this to any cocktail party and people will speak to your face. I think when I wear this out to a nice dinner with the boyfriend I will probably add a belt or something to give a bit of contrast as the solid black does give a bit of a funeral dress sort of vibe, but since it's a solid any accessory will brighten this up easily and will give just that little bit more of dimension. Overall for the genre which I am huge fan of this is the most modest of my collection and I am glad to have it, not all Rockabilly needs to be revealing and if I want to "sex" it up a bit some curls, heels and fishnets will more than do the trick.
One thing I also like very much about these dresses is the affordability, I have bought several in this style over the last year and had to wait until they were on sale as the price is significantly higher than I am use to. With the price under 30$ with shipping its significantly lower than other outlets for similar dresses and from my personal experience it's similar in quality. Interested in trying out Rockabilly for yourself check out the styles available below!

So for the most part I could not figure out what to actually use these for they are small, far smaller than I expected when ordering them. That being said after given some time I finally let the kids color on them. At a little less than 2.00 a piece I could actually see letting the kids make their own wall art on them. As for the utility of them in general I would say the sizes are a little small for my personal art abilities.
However, if you are looking for smaller size for a particular project I would recommend them. The quality of the small canvases however is spectacular. They are all uniformed and may of them are individually wrapped so they are protected from damaging each other. They are acid free, which I think is important for the people who are well versed in the arts. The wrapped edges are also solid without edges that could easily come apart. The quality is definitely there even if I couldn't find any unique ideas, however I love the art above and if you can't tell my lily bug loves it too! Got more creativity than I do? Check out the great Canvases below!

So for the record, I was given this to review at reduced cost in order to give my honest opinion of the product. That being said I am not being paid to say that I love the product, I actually don't love it, but I do very much like it I'd give it a 4.5 stars if I could but they are making me choose solid so I will give it a 5 to help boost the average that was brought down by the person who bashed it without warrant. I think it is a far better product than the previous negative review stated. The following reasons are why I think its a good solid product and why I think the previous review as misleading.
1. The number of tools on the item is quite impressive, that being said I can agree that the scissors would likely not cut through a seat belt easily, however if you are in the situation where you need to cut through a seat belt and aren't carrying around a sturdy knife it would likely not cut through, hence why most would utilize the button. If the button is however jammed I would recommend using the knife not the scissors. With enough force you could get the knife/saw thingy through a seatbelt. Also the other tools are about the same quality as a 20$ "swiss army knife" in terms of durability as with all "swiss army style" tools the joints where they come into connection with the main piece is their weak points. They don't bend easily as we tried, but if you are significantly stronger than I am and are really putting them to a test, they will break off. Normal usage will not do this so for most jobs all of the tools will do what they are intended. That being said they are not ripping you off when it comes to the tools they are worth the purchase, to have them handy and not have to carry a pocket knife as well.
2. The window breaker, so in the horribly negative review, the review mentioned the mechanism for springing out. When mine arrived it worked perfectly without any issue, but yes it does not have another spring mechanism for in water window breaking. However, typically they don't when you get any multi-tool so I don't think of this as a negative.
3. In terms of PSI measurement. As far as I can tell it seems accurate enough, its far more accurate than the one at the gas station which honestly is my primary use. I am not sure that it's perfect but like a scale how often are two exactly the same?
4. Finally the LED lamp, yes it requires 1 AAA battery and no it's not included. Not exactly a huge negative, it's one battery and by not including it the world did in fact not end. The lamp itself is great and the tool can be used immediately upon receipt even without the lamp battery so it's not an issue either way.
Overall, I would say if you are looking for a digital tire gauge I would say this is a great option. If you are going to drive over water a lot possibly invest in another self hammering tool for windows, but this will work for many other needed incidents. I would recommend this for anyone looking to have a useful tool in their car for long road trips. Check it out on Amazon by clicking the picture below!
Now on to the full parts! Do you want to win one here? I bet you do! This giveaway is open to Continental US only 18+! Sorry Kiddies but this ones for the grown ups!

In California where I live right now we are on a limited watering schedule of only 2 days a week, so as you can imagine every drop counts. With the garden that we are trying to maintain as well that has required us to get quite creative in the techniques and to really soak the plants thoroughly whenever we do have a chance to water. So utilizing a traditional open hose spray option is not really an option due to the waste involved. I literally only want to water my specific planters and nothing else, why bother soaking something that isn't going to give me a crop right? So when given the opportunity to try out the Premium Garden hose spray nozzle with 8 sprayers I thought awesome, this could help. And honestly it did.
The first thing I noticed about the sprayer is eight different spray options are very broad, but very specific. It was almost like they preconceived all the different types of planter boxes and uses I might have and settled on the 8 most useful sprayers. From the vertical spray pattern to the flat I can handle watering both my vertical garden as well as the troughs with ease. For the lettuces and things that I prefer to mist it has a misting option and it has a heavy duty spray nozzle for other tasks like spraying the bottom of the fruit trees. I like the heavy duty feel of the sprayer as well. It doesn't feel like it is going to easily break. Which is also important because honestly gardening is designed to save money at the grocery store and if you have to spend an arm and leg to do it, then where is the real savings. This however is a key investment in the garden and I feel like it's going to last for a long time.
As for size and feel of the sprayer itself, I have a large hand so it fit me very well. For someone with smaller hands I would say that it won't be very comfortable and will require a bit of adjustment. But, the quality is there and if you are looking to buy a quality sprayer that would definitely recommend it. Check it out on Amazon if your interested in hearing other opinions or interested in purchasing one.

So have you ever heard of Skin Brushing? Am I the only person who hasn't? I hope not so I got my google on,
Basically, it's suppose to stimulate the lymphatic system which is part of the circulatory system as well as the immune system to promote health as well as detox, declog the pores and exfoliate the skin. I am not sure about the first but I can see how it would help to exfoliate by brushing off dead skin. That being said I am probably just going to use it for scrubbing my back, but I do like how soft the bristles feel.
Since I will be utilizing it primarily as a shower scrubbing mechanism I was concerned about the roughness of the bristles when wet. They however are super soft but rough enough to do a good job of getting me clean. They provide a nice lather, not that of a shower pouf but more similar to that of a toothbrush, the more you scrub the more bubbles you get. I also like the length, the longer handle allows me to reach over my shoulder and reach all the way to my rear. That being said I also have really long arms so if you are sporting more of a T-rex shape it may not get there, but it is long for anyone with average arms as well. I had my mom demo just to verify.
Overall I would say this is a great product for the market, it's definitely a luxury item of sorts, but cleanliness is pretty important so I can easily justify in my head spending the money to make sure I am fully clean.

I honestly LOVE them. I find them to be the most versatile tool in my kitchen not only can I use them for their purpose of tongs, but I can use them to stir while cooking and flip meat at the same time. The silicone can handle high heat so if your making potato salad you can literally reach in and pull out a hot potato or an egg straight from the boiling water. I used these to make and serve an entire pasta dinner with sausages. It worked great for picking up noodles without crushing them and flipping the sausage. You can even stir the sauce without worrying about discoloration or warping. and then just tap them on the side and the excess sauce just slides off.
There is a cool mechanism for locking them so they don't stay open all the time on the end handle which I found great for storage as it lays as flat as any large serving spoon would. The grip on the handle is at the right length so that you won't burn yourself if you decide to use this as the kitchen multi-tool like I did or if you want to keep your fingers out of the salad as it is probably intended. Overall I would say add this to any kitchen and be surprised by how many uses you will find for it. Plus it's a fun lime green so definitely adds a pop to your kitchen tool arsenal.
Right now on Amazon you can grab these for as low as 7.95!! Or 3 different varieties for 15.95 which I think is a steal! Don't miss out these are my new favorite kitchen tool!
