Piczzle- Personalized Puzzle Review & Giveaway- Ends 3/14

I love puzzles, so when I had the chance to review a Piczzle Photo Puzzle, I was very excited! Ordering on their site is simple and easy. You just pick out whether you want a standard cardboard puzzle or a wooden one, then move on to the number of pieces and size of the puzzle. You also have the option of adding up to two lines of 35 characters each, for a personalized message. The final thing you need to do is upload your picture and submit your order. Then you'll be waiting for the mail to come!

For my review, I received a medium, 8.5x11", 48 piece puzzle. I chose a picture I took when I was on vacation last year in Laguna Beach and it turned out amazing! The puzzle comes in a nice box, with the picture on the cover. The pieces are thick and well made. You can expect your image to be of the same quality that you provided. My puzzle was clear and exactly how I remembered.

Another neat feature they offer is shaped puzzles. In addition to standard rectangular options, they have circular and heart shapes available. They also have several different borders to pick from that would be great for different holidays. Whether it be for Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day or someone's birthday, Piczzle Photo Puzzles make great gifts. They are an affordable, sentimental option that the receiver will cherish forever!

11 in 1 Stainless Steel Credit Card Multitool Review

The 11 in 1 Credit Card Sized Stainless Steel Survival Multitool is a great product to keep in your wallet, in your purse or in your car, because you really never know when you are going to need it. This 11 in 1 tool, contains just about everything you could possibly fit on one 2.68" x 1.78" x 0.079" piece of metal. As you can see, it is the size of a credit card and only a little bit thicker. Included along with the tool is a sleek black sleeve to carry the tool in and a sheet listing exactly what each tool is.

The uses:

1. A can opener
2. Knife Edge
3. Screwdriver
4. Ruler
5. Cap opener
6. 4 position wrench
7. Butterfly wrench
8. Saw blade
9. Directions ancillary indication
10. 2 position wrench
11. Lanyard hole (keyring hole)

I would not recommend putting it on a lanyard, as the saw and knife edge are very sharp. For this reason I keep it in the black sleeve that it arrived in. This product is made solid 420 stainless steel. It is sturdy and not going to bend or break. This is a great gift to purchase for anyone who enjoys camping, hiking, backpacking, fishing or is a survivalist of any kind. When you want to be prepared, this is the product to have. It can be purchased on Amazon here or by clicking on the link below. I know I will be keeping this in my purse from now on!

Ramini Brands® Silicone Glasses Review

If you are sick of worrying about your glasses breaking- Ramini Brands® Silicone Glasses are just what you need. They are made of 100% food grade non-stick silicone which is BPA-free, FDA Compliant and Eco-friendly. These glasses are unlike anything you have seen before. You can fold them to fit in your pocket, making them great for on-the-go activities. They would be perfect for camping, a day at the beach, going to the pool, and just relaxing at home!

Prior to using, make sure to thoroughly wash the glasses to remove the silicone smell. They are dishwasher, microwave, over and freezer safe. That means these glasses could be used for a number of things. I was thinking about making little ice cream cakes in each one. They are the perfect dessert serving size! Once you add your drink, the glasses hold their shape perfectly. They do take some getting used to when holding, make sure not to squeeze them too tight and they are not made to be filled to the brim. Because they do bend, there needs to be a little bit of room at the top to make sure you can pick them up.

As an added bonus, you receive a copy of a free eBook with Wine and Spirits Recipes and How to Brew Beer at Home with each purchase.

They have even provided a coupon code for my readers to use!
For $5.00 off of the purchase price on Amazon, use coupon code: S7QHOWGT offer expires 3/31/15

Swiss Botany Pure Moroccan Argan Oil Review & Giveaway- Ends 3/5

Recently I had been hearing about all kinds of products that contained Argan Oil, yet I really had no idea what it was. So when I had the chance to review Swiss Botany's Pure Moroccan Argan Oil, I decided to do some research and learn more about it.
Roman Königshofer | Filmmaker & Photographer / Foter / CC BY-ND

What is Argan Oil?

Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the Argan Tree that is native to Morocco. While we mainly associate it with beauty products, in Morocco, it is often used for dipping bread or in pasta. The Argan Tree is an endangered and protected tree. It can only be legally farmed by selected producers of Argan Oil. This makes it extremely rare, gaining it the nickname of "Liquid Gold." Over 3,500 years ago, ancient Moroccan Berbers first perfected the extraction of Argan Oil from the kernels of the Argan Tree.

Having an unusually high content of antioxidants, Argan has the perfect blend for both medicinal and cosmetic applications. Swiss Botany's Pure Moroccan Argan Oil is only made of one ingredient: Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, and it is certified organic. It is produced using the highest standards in the industry, cold pressed, unrefined, all-natural and unscented.



I used this product at night on my face and noticed an improvement in the smoothness and my overall complexion. I also applied just a drop to my hair to tame flyaways and make it more manageable. It is surprising how far just a drop goes. I love the eye-dropper that comes with the product. It makes using it easy and quick.

A few other uses for Argan Oil include:
-Used for anti-aging or treating dry skin. This includes eczema and psoriasis.
-Helps to alleviate muscle pain
-May reduce the appearance of scars
-Helps reduce facial blemishes- leaving a non-greasy feeling.
-Helps reduce wrinkles & treat dark under-eye circles
-Improves dry, brittle, frizzy and damaged hair.

Swiss Botany products have a 100% satisfaction money back guarantee. They have also offered to provide one of my readers the chance to win a bottle for themselves! This is the perfect opportunity to give Pure Moroccan Argan Oil a try! You can purchase your own at the Swiss Botany website here or on amazon here.


Now for the giveaway! The giveaway will run from 2/17/15 through 3/5/15 11:59PM EST. US Only. Once a winner is selected, I will contact them via Email and they will have 24 hours to respond before a new winner is chosen. Please check your email and be sure to add to your address book!

Miracle Care- Pet Nail Shaper Review

Keeping up with your dog's nails can be hard at times. They should be trimmed on a regular basis to ensure that they do not break off causing a lot of pain for your pet. Miracle Corp offers products to make taking care of your pets nails on your own simple and easy! After trimming your dog's nails, The Miracle Care Nail Shaper is the perfect tool to finish your at home pet-pampering. It quickly and easily filed down the sharp edges left after using nail trimmers.

This is the perfect tool if your pets are easily skitzed out by the loudness of motorized nail grinders. It works silently as you spin it around your dog's nails. I had no trouble using this product. My golden retriever was almost oblivious to the whole procedure!

Additional product details from the Miracle Care website:
-The innovative Nail Shaper by Miracle Care is specially contoured to fit all pet nails. Gently twist away sharp ends and rough edges that can scratch people, furniture and floors.
-No matter how sharp the tool, clipping hard, brittle nails can leave rough edges. Motorized nail grinders are noisy and when used improperly can catch hair or even burn.
-The Nail Shaper's manual design allows pet owners to take control of the pressure and twisting action needed to take away rough edges silently and painlessly.
-Designed for all breeds, simply insert the nail into the contoured barrel and twist to shape and smooth edges. Use after clipping for just out of the grooming salon results.

Be sure to check out their website and the product on Amazon as well.

Using the Internet to Make Money: Get Paid to Take Surveys, Recieve Texts, etc.

There are a number of sites claiming to pay you to take surveys and provide 'easy money' but is it really true?
While its possible to make a living taking surveys, it is possible to make some extra spending money, and maybe even enough to cover gifts for the holidays and birthdays!
I started finding survey sites over a year ago and can say that you do get paid and it can be worth it!

Here are some of my favorites:

Free Eats- This one is quick and easy. You get paid $1 when you sign up and get a text. They send text surveys every once in a while. I am still figuring out how it works but I've made about $4 by just receiving texts.

Opinion Outpost-You only need 100 points in your account to cash out, which would be $10. I love that this site deposits direct to PayPal within minutes.

American Consumer Opinion- 1000 points is equal to $10 dollars on this site. You do have to wait for them to send you a check. I like this one because you sometimes have the opportunity to test out new products for companies.

IM Report Card Research - Surveys are rewarded in terms of dollars, not points. So it is easy to know how much money you are making. With just $10 you can cash out with either Amazon gift cards, Dining Dough, or a Prepaid Debit card.

Paid ViewPoint-While each survey only gets you a couple cents, they only take about a minute to complete. Sometimes you get surveys worth a few dollars. Once you get to $15 you can cashout straight to PayPal.

Send Earnings-This one takes a bit longer to earn enough to cash out. You need $30 to request a check. It is nice because you get paid 2 cents per email you open, and there are options to get paid to play games, search, accept offers and take surveys.

Survey Savvy-This company sends out some high paying surveys, although they can be more rare. You can request a check at any time and it will be mailed right away.

Do you have any sites to recommend? I'd love to give them a try!
