Aromatherapy Essential Oils

Maker - Living Beautitudes

Product Type - Oils/Home

Where to Buy - Amazon

Price - $16.95

Living Beatitudes Aromatherapy Essential Oils set includes 4x(10ml/0.33oz) bottles of Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Orange & Pine. 

The oils are extracted from nature's most generous trees, herbs, fruits and plants, and we're proud to share them with you and those you care about. Use these luxuriously 100% certified pure therapeutic grade high-quality essential oils to help you feel your best, look your best, be your best, and have the energy and vitality you need to enjoy your life.

 They are only for external use such as: Aromatherapy, Vaporizer, Diffusion, Oil Burner, Inhalation, Perfume, Blends, Custom Massage and Body Oils, Spa and home care.


Do you love essential oils? Do you not know what they are? No worries! These are highly easy to use for many different purposes and are great starter scents for those just learning what essential oils are.

These oils come in a nice little box nestled in foam so the glass bottles do not break. You get the scents; Lemongrass, a sweet lemon scent. Orange, a citrus scent that is like the cleaner but sweet and pairs well with a clove oil or even pine if you DO like the cleaner scent. Pine, a pine forest scent, its light and slightly manly but very fresk smelling. Finally, Eucalyptus, a unique menthol almost minty scent, I advise keeping this away from the eyes. 

I have used all these scents in different ways. I diluted orange and lemongrass in with water in my wax warmer and let the scent fill my apartment. Eucalyptus i used in boiling water as a Vicks substitute and breathed it in to clear my nose. Pine and orange both went into my bath water as a relaxing soak and also when paired with lemon and lavender it makes a nice clothing wash if you happen to run out of detergamt (i mixed them with a neutral smelling non-bleach cleaner).

There are so many uses for these oils than what i mentioned. You can make your own soaps, wax melts, sshampoo.. Are you Wiccan? You can use them in spellwork or rituals as well. I do suggest you refrain from using them in anythibg you may ingest though, these are NOT food grade.

Products - Dog chews and treats

Where to Buy - official site or Amazon

PawStruck offers your dog a wide variety of Natural chews and treats from bully sticks in round shapes, cow ears, pig ears, and even leanit butter stuffed bones. Whatever you choose your dog will be overjoyed to have it.


I recieved five of Pawstrucks treats for my dog Panda and while she loved some, some of them were not for her. 

One that she really did not care for was the cow hoof. She really just carted it around with her but never chewed it. She still has it and takes it with her everywhere so perhaps she thinks of it as a friend or chaperone perhaps. I just know this hard hoof was not one she enjoyed for chewing.

The white cow ear she really enjoyed and was chewing on it for quite a while. My pup has two teeth missing but that did not stoo her from getting all the delicious ear in her belly! She still has a little nubby bit of this on the bes, saving it for a midnight snack i presume.

She also loved this round bully stick. Nothing cuter than seeing her stick her nose through it, her whole head almost fits! She is currently working on this one and i enjoy the round shape, its a challenge for her and keeps her entertained. I also enjoy that it does not smell horrid like some bully sticks i have come across. 

The other bully stick I recieved was a spiral like shape. I had to toss this, thus the lack of picture. Panda liked it just fine and was happy to chew it however, at one point she choked on it and couldnt seem to NOT choke on it after a while.. I think the shape just did not agree with her enthusiasm. As i said she enjoyed it but i do not think this was the right chew for her

The last chew I got was a pigs ear. I have not known a dog to not love a pig ear. She tore into this and ate the entire thing in one go. My dog is small but she determined to finish it and she did! She also left little pig ear shards all over my bed and did not deign to pick them up so i would say just be prepared with the hand vac after giving this to your dog. 

Although Panda did have some trouble with a few of these I think the majority were very much enjoyed and appreciated. All natural treats are hard to come by, and usually they are not fun or entertaining much so i think PawStruck is doing a great job.

Madoka Magica Case

Maker - Case88 Designs

Product Type - Hard case/LG G3

Where to Buy - Madoka Version

Price - $9.99

Case88 designs is an Amazon store that sells cases for your phone needs. Whether you have Motorola, Samsung, Sprint or another phone Case88 has you covered. Some designs include Hello Kitty, Pokemon, Attack on Titan, Dragon Ball Z and many more from your favorite Animes and other fandoms.


I have never had the opportunity to get a new case or plate for my cellphone since mine was so old they stopped making them. When i got my new Samsung Lg G3 I knew I wanted something more than the default slate grey back. 

Thus I shopped around and happened across the Madoka Magica case from Case88 Designs, I am a big anime fan but also a fan of the darker side of things so this case really fit me, it also helps that it was an anime I was also watching at the time and loved. 

My case arrived in about 2 weeks and in pristine condition. It was easy to snap onto the back of my phone and fit snugly but not too tight. The sides of the case come up over the phone a bit and curve inwards, I like this because it adds extra protection; the case hits the ground or surface first all around.

The design is extremly pretty and has a glossy effect to it. It is difficult to scratch in the convententional ways (fingernails, purse contents). I have dropped my phone many times since getting this (I am rather klutzy) and it still looks great! I can use all my buttons easily and its a great conversation starter. I really love this case and since it is so easy to take off I may have to get more for my different moods!

White Leaf Day Cream

Maker - Simonida Pure 

Product Type - Beauty

Where to Buy - Amazon

Price - $19.95

Helps Hydrate and Nourish the Skin, Binding Moisture to the Skin Providing a Plumping and Firming Effect 

Whiteleaf Acts a Moisture Magnet For a Healthier and More Nourished Skin Helps the Skin Hold Moisture, Not Letting the Moisture Escape 

Perfect For Immediate Relief Of Problem Dry Areas Perfect For Daily Use To Keep a Healthy Skin, Moist and Hydrated 

Will Prevent Dry Skin, Itching, Peeling and Cracking


How many moisturizing creams have you tried? If you are like me you have tried many kinds from many various price ranges and have your favorites as well as a list of 'to avoid' creams. 

Whiteleaf is a very nice day cream that lends a good amount of moisture (once layered) to my very dry skin. 

The formula is on thr thick side but not pastey and even though it is orange it absorbs quickly into the skin and is clear once it does so. As i said i do have to layer this because my skin is so dry so i tend to put two or three applications on before my makeup but only one before bed for extra moisture.

The smell of this is, alright. It is not bad smelling at all but it is not soft either, its kind of a mix between flowery and chemical. The scent will dissipate after a while of wear. I have not found myself breaking out with this nor have I had any other negative effects. For the price and amount you get i say this is a fairy good deal for how well it does moisturize and keep my skin smooth.

Click Roast Deliver


Click Roast Deliver offers many different coffee options straight to your door! You can get light roast or dark, espresso or regular roast, drip brew or whole bean and much more.

My coffee came to my door very quickly, they use priority mail and depending on how much coffee you get and if they are from different roasters your shipping cost will vary but my two coffee bags were around $6 for shipping. 

I chose Tangletown a "light berry noye with milk chocolate" coffee and it really actually looks like milk chocolate when the beans are ground down. The smell like all coffee to me was earthy and bitter, the beans were a bit smokey as well leaving a sort of tabacco scent on my fingers. Perfect to munch though, they are not too bitter. The nrewed coffee itself does have notes of sweet berry and mellow chocolate, it is a dark colored brew for being a light roast. Not my favorite blend actually I think just the all around combination is off and would be better served elsewhere. 

The other coffee I got was Gusto Crema a mild to medium sweet coffee with italian flavors. Now, I am not that big of a coffee conniseur to know what italian flavor profiles are but this is a delicious light amber coffee! I got this in drip form anotand it is a very mild flavor with hardly and bitterness and a sweet finish. Pairs perfectly with some cream and sugar or cashew milk and vanilla protein powder. A smooth finish and no off aftertaste is what really gets me to love this. Definatly my favorite one.

If you are interested in a variety of coffees but do not want to go to the store i highly recommend Click Roast Deliver. Organic, fair trade and specialty coffees.. How can you go wrong?

Organic Dandelion Tea

Maker - KissMe Organics Official Site

Product Type - Food/Drink

Where to buy - Amazon

Price - $19.97

SUPPORTS HEALTHY DIGESTION, KIDNEY HEALTH & LIVER FUNCTION Detox the liver and kidneys from toxins that can build up over time. Healthy digestion helps the body to absorb more nutrients and improve physical and cognitive functions. RAW & 

ORGANIC Raw Dandelion Root is extremely nutrient rich and provides more vital minerals and vitamins to your body when compared to roasted Dandelion Root. 

VITAMIN RICH Raw Dandelion root is rich in Vitamins A, C, D and B-complex plus Iron, Potassium and Zinc. A diet rich in these nutrients can help treat mood disorders, liver disorders and boost a weakened immune system. 
HIBISCUS & CINNAMON While enhancing the earthy flavor, and adding a hint of flowery sweetness to every cup; Hibiscus has been shown to help regulate blood pressure and Cinnamon has been shown to regulate blood sugar and reduce bad cholesterol

There is not much that turns me away from a good cup of hot tea. Kissme organic dandelion tea with hibiscus and cinnamon powder is a delicious cup of tea that sports many health benefits. These are baggie servings and while I rarely use bags, prefering loose tea this was a nice change.

The color of the tea is a beautiful pinkish red rather similar to the petals of a hibiscus plant which i think adds charm and appeal. The smell is flowery yet spicy from the cinnamon but it is a light spice, you will not be sneezing into your cup. 

The taste of it is light and fresh. The hibiscus lends a sweet note that you do not need to add sugar to the tea to get, or at least very much. It can be bitter at times due to the cinnamon so perhaps half a teaspoon of sugar or agave would help without adding too many calories. 

This tea is a nice relaxer and goes very well with some tea cookies or crackers and a good book.

Randoms Gummies

Maker - Wonka

Product Type - Food/Candy

Where to buy - Official Wonka Site


Wonka Randoms are fun gummies with endless possibilities. One bag can contain hundreds of combinations of shapes, textures and flavors.

I ate A LOT of these when I got them, perhaps too many, they were gone in 2 days! I recieved these free from Smiley360 to review and I am glad I did. These are a typical gummy flavor, you have your grapes and lemons and berry. The fun part is the shapes. And textures. I was picking out orange puppies alongside green trumpets and red monkeys. 

Some of the shapes are reacurring as I got about six puppies in my bag but that was fine, there are so many shapes who is really counting right? The ones I REALLY liked had the white bottoms, not only was it a denser texture but some had a juicy goopy center (like gushers) and added a different mouth and tongue feel than the regular gummies. These are not the healthiest candies for you so remember to watch how many you eat (or not, it is your choice) but I am sure they will be enjoyed by many young and old.

Total Revitalization Kits (Aloe + vitamin C)

Maker - Absolute!

Product Type - Beauty/Spa

Unwind and rediscover radiant youthful skin with the Total Revitalization Kit by Absolute! Skincare. Formulated with natural moisturizers and soothing botanicals, Absolute! skincare nourishes and hydrates for a luminous, healthy-looking complexion.

Kits include: 

2 pcs. Brightening mask 16 cts. 

Cooling eye pad 20 cts. 

Make up cleansing tissue

Both of these kits are wonderful, easy, no mess ways to calm you and unwind. The kits come with all you need and you dont need anything extra. Well, perhaps some good music to losten while you relax! 

I would like to address each kits smell first since the items are the same. The aloe one smells very green and fresh, with a hint of coolness, like rain and plants. This one i feel is more relaxing because it is so clean smelling. The vitamin C one smells like oranges of course but it also smells more complex than that. It is a bright, sweet, upbeat kind of scent that just lifts your mood and makes you smile.

Now, the makeup wipes we all know and love (If you do makeup) these are thick, soft wipes that take my foundation and eyeshadow off with little effort. They are also rather pliant so you can stretch them if need be. If you are using them alone and not with the face mask then you will need to moisturize afterwards as they can be drying to your skin. 

The little eye pads that come in these kits are fun. They were a bit big around my eyes but i guess they have to fit many different shapes and sizes being one size. They stay on well and really brighten up the eyes, dark circles appear lighter and really who dosn't live to just lay down and rest thier eyes for 10 minutes? I really enjoy that they come in a resealable bag with liquid in it so they do not dry out or fall out.

The real star here is the mask though. Not only are they soothing but moisturizing as well. You get two in each kit, enough for 2 weeks or one every two weeks depending on how much you need them. When you open the bag I do caution you; these are WET! They have a lot of liquid inside them to ensure the mask stays hydrated and that your skin recieves ample moisture. So once you unfold the mask you simply place it on your face, depending on your face size and shape it may be a bit big or small. Just smooth it out as far as you can up along your hairline and down your neck then sit back and wait for 15-20 minutes. I recommend a book. After it is time all you do is take the mask off and throw it out then rub wherever there is product into your skin. Done! This hydrates wonderfully and left my skin cool and refeshed as well as smooth. I felt invigorated with these masks and felt like i could breath deep and just be calm. Either mask kit you get you are going to enjoy the skin benefits as well as the calmness of your mind.

Pineapple Coconut Bar

Maker - Nutriplex 

Product Type - Health/Food

Where to Buy - Official Site

Nutraplex® Pineapple Coconut Bar is the trip to paradise you have been waiting for. Explore the sweetness of juicy pineapple adjoined with the silky smoothness of coconut. Your taste buds will be fooled into thinking you just woke up on an exotic island. Naturally sweetened with honey, this chewy blend of almonds cashews and chia seeds is packed with protein.

This healthy nutritional bar is packed with yummy chia seeds, almonds and honey. It is vegetarian, Non GMO, dairy and soy free. It is also kosjer and full of omega 3s. 

The look of this bar I admit is pretty bland. The taste was light as well, i did not get pineapple coconut out of this though i did get sweet honey and a hint of coconut. The reall suprise is the hidden crunchy factor from the chia seeds. They provide a unique twist, almost a popping sensation while you eat this. The bar itself is pretty thin and chewy but not a bad mouth feel. I did not notice extra energy but it was a nice snack to fill you up for a few hours. The chia seeds you may be picking out of your teeth all day though so thathats just a warning! Overall this is quite healthy and tastes pretty good, I enjoyed it.
