Sunday, July 26, 2015 Quality, Affordable Clothing!

No matter what I am looking to purchase, I am always searching for a great deal on quality items., is the perfect one stop, online shop, for all of my clothing needs. They offer a wide variety of quality clothing items at prices that are $5.99 or below! The merchandise is high quality and all brand new. They are able to offer these affordable prices due to their long standing relationships with manufacturers mostly based out of their headquarters in Los Angeles, CA to companies based all over the world. They purchase in bulk to sell and ship directly to us, their customers.

I was given the opportunity to review 5 pieces of clothing from any of their available stock on It was tough to make a decision, they have everything from apparel, accessories, beauty, jewelry, mens, plus size, kids clothing, and even lingerie!  I decided to try out 3 tops, a pair of fleece lined leggings, and a nice work appropriate jacket. I was thoroughly impressed with each piece! The fabric was soft and well stitched. I loved how their available clothing keeps up with all the latest trends and ready for anything.

One of the shirts I got to review from was the All Sheer Lace Top in orange. I love the material, and that I can easily adapt it to match any outfit by changing the color cami that I am wearing. The shirt is a bit longer, making it perfect to wear with my new Seamless Fleece Leggings! These are my absolute favorite leggings. They are thick and will surely keep me warm this winter. The material is warm and stretches to fit any size. I am a bit on the taller side- at 5 foot 8 inches and length is something I often times struggle with. Not with these leggings! They are long and comfy.

I also got two additional tops that would be perfect for the workplace. The blue on is the a 3/4 blouse with a beautiful lace backing. The shirt is made of a soft cotton and the lace is detailed with flowers. It is a great shirt to wear to work and gives a very professional vibe. The white top is knitted and would be perfect for all seasons. It does keep you warm and fashionable!

599fashion is the perfect site for anyone searching for affordable, comfortable clothing. They have hundreds of styles to choose from and will be sure to have something to suit your style! I know how hard it can be to find a reliable, cheap online shopping site. This is the site you have been looking for! I know I will be placing my next clothing order soon!

The nice size of the clip makes it simple to attach to the side of a bowl, a cabinet handle, a book, grill, or just about anywhere that you want. I don't have enough light under my cabinets at night so I found it very helpful to clip this light onto my cutting board while doing prep for dinner the other night.

My Thoughts:
I've have had a set of name brand plastic measuring spoons since I set up house keeping more than twenty years ago. Getting me to part with them wasn't going to be easy, but always willing to try new things I gave these a test drive. I found the 1Easlife measuring spoons to be nicely weighted and with the length of the handles I was able to reach into containers with ease. I really like that they take up much less space than my old set and are much easier to get clean. After comparing the two it may be time to retire my old ones.
Instant Read Digital Cooking Thermometer by Chef DeTemple
Instant Read Digital Cooking Thermometer by Chef DeTemple
  • PREVENT OVERCOOKING - Don't ruin an elegant meal or backyard barbecue by serving dry, tough, overcooked meat. If you only use cooking time to determine doneness, you could end up with some pieces being cooked perfectly and others over or underdone - not to mention burnt! You can easily avoid this by using a meat thermometer. When cooked to the proper temperature, meat will stay juicy and tender.
  • PREVENT ILLNESS - Using a food thermometer greatly reduces your risk of foodborne illness associated with bacteria. The harmful bacteria found in contaminated food can only survive up to a certain temperature, and using a food thermometer is the only way to be 100-percent sure that your food is safe to eat.
  • EASY TO USE - Large LCD display for easy-to-read numbers - No More Squinting! Function buttons include On/Off, Hold and °C/°F conversion. Auto shut-off after 10 minutes saves battery life. Uses (1) AAA battery.
  • MEASURING RANGE AND ACCURACY - Instant read in only 4-7 seconds accurately measuring range of temperatures between -58°F-572°F (-50°C-300°C). Long stainless steel probe to keep your hands safe from heat!
My Thoughts:
My thermometer arrived the day I was making fried green tomatoes so I used it to make sure that my oil was at the proper temperature. If it's to cold the tomatoes get mushy before the breading gets brown and if it's to hot the outside  burns and the tomatoes are hard. I had bragged to my west coast boyfriend how awesome mine were so getting it right was important. My reputation as a southern cook was on the line! I found that this thermometer was easy to use. I just put one AAA battery in it, turned it on, and flipped open the probe. When I placed the tip in the oil I had a reading in seconds and with the nice big readout I didn't need my glasses to see it. I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone with confidence.

  • Choose from wild cherry wood, black walnut, or try both!

My Thoughts:
With so many of or utensils now having plastic composite handles I hold onto my old ones that have real handles and find myself going back to using them. I just love the feel of wood and have been known to spend a lot of money just to purchase one brand of knife that has a wood handle. So when my cheese slicer arrived I couldn't wait to test it. It works for all types of cheese so I got out some block cheese that I had in the fridge to see how well it worked and felt in my hand.  It worked wonderfully and what fun slices! We often do cheese and fruit for snacks and since it is safe for the little ones to use I can't wait for my grandchildren to come over at use it to make their own fun snacks.
Bitpsy Professional Jumbo Lemon Squeezer
Bitpsy Professional Jumbo Lemon Squeezer
  • HIGH QUALITY STAINLESS STEEL - This Premium Lemon squeezer made out of the strongest material available and WILL NOT BREAK when squeezing. This hand polished Citrus Juicer will not peel or rust.
  • SO EASY TO USE - No matter if you choose to squeeze lemons, limes or blood oranges, this Btipsy Lemon Squeezer will make your job so easy. Fits for both kids and old men, This Squeezer is so convenient to use and with an effortless squeeze you can get every bit of juice out of the fruit.
  • EASY TO CLEAN - Once finished using the Lemon Juicer, it's very easy to clean it by hand or just placing it inside the dishwasher since this Lemon Squeezer is DISHWASHER SAFE. So feel free to clean it whatever you'd like.

My Thoughts:
The all metal construction makes this juicer strong and durable. Plus, since it is made out of stainless steel I get longevity and don't have to worry about it rusting. With a very small kitchen I have very limited drawer space in my home. The hook makes it easy to hang off off one of my many cup hooks that are on every open spot in my kitchen. We eat a lot of fish and salads that we use fresh squeezed lemon and orange for and having it hanging and not hidden in a drawer keeps it handy. I found that the nice big handles were easy to grasp and squeeze so that I could get all the juice out.
Eco Bamboo Cutting Board with Handle
Eco Bamboo Cutting Board with Handle
  • This eco friendly cutting board can handle just about everything in your kitchen, from slicing cheese to carving bone-in beef roasts.
  • Highly durable. Made with premium, hand selected odor-resistant organic bamboo, harder than maple wood
  • Durable stainless steel handle for easy grip
  • Made from 100% high quality antimicrobial recyclable bamboo with Non-Toxic food grade adhesive - starch from a sweet potato
  • Easy to clean and maintain - Easily wash and clean off bacteria and food particles with some hot water and soap then let it air dry.

My Thoughts:
In the last few years, bamboo has become one of the most popular materials for cutting boards because of it's low maintenance, superior health and sanitation qualities. Not only does it look good but it is a green, renewable and earth friendly material. The hardness of a bamboo cutting board, plus the fact that it very resistant to bacteria makes it a must have in my kitchen. I tested my new board by cutting some yellow squash, zucchini, and cucumbers with a brand new ceramic knife and could not find one mark from doing it. All you have to do is make a habit of never letting it soak and wiping it dry after washing  and with this easy, proper care this board will stay beautiful for years.
VOS Professional Classic 8 Inch Ceramic Chef's Knife
VOS Professional Classic 8 Inch Ceramic Chef's Knife

  • Sharpness - Our ultra-sharp advanced ceramic blade will retain its original sharpness up to 15 times longer than steel blades.
  • Purity - Rust-proof, will never brown foods, impervious to acids and oils, no metallic taste or smell. Advanced ceramic is a pure & healthy alternative.
  • Lightweight - Typically half the weight of metal-based knives, offers total ease of use with the most difficult cutting tasks. Ergonomic handles produce a well-balanced, highly controlled grip.
  • Easy to Clean - The fact that advanced ceramic does not absorb any food element, allows just a quick rinse and wipe with a kitchen towel.
  • 8 Inch Chef Ceramic knife For slicing fruits, vegetables and boneless meats.

My Thoughts:
This is my first ceramic knife so I wanted to know what some of the advantages of a ceramic knife were. I found out that they include hardness, ceramic is second only to diamonds; weight, it's much lighter than metal; durability, because these knives keep their razor sharp edge and will not wear out like metal; no metal means no rust; and the ability to resist stains and odors. Because each ceramic knife goes through a long manufacturing process which makes it high end you can expect quality and longevity from your knife. I tested my new ceramic knife by cutting some yellow squash, zucchini, and cucumbers. Even with difficulties from injuries with my hands I found the handle was very easy to hold and grip. It sliced the veggies with ease and with very little pressure from me. With my garden producing lots of vegetables this will be my new go to knife for prepping them.

My Thoughts:

The food that comes with it is sure to keep them entertained for hours.

My Body Utopia- All Natural Bath & Body Products

My Body Utopia is a family run business that strives to create beautiful, natural products that you will surely be proud to use on your entire family. Their promise is: "We guarantee you'll love our selection! Our products are hand-made with love and simple ingredients you can pronounce!"

I love that they are making products with all natural ingredients- and something that I can actually pronounce! I hate when I am not sure what I am putting on my body. It makes it hard to tell if it is really safe for me and my family or not. This is why I was so happy when I was given the opportunity to try out 2 of My Body Utopia's products for review. I selected the Sparkling Meadows Deodorant and Crazy Clean Cotton whipped Shea Cream.

Lets start with the Sparkling Meadows Deodorant:

I do not oftentimes find deodorants that I like to use. I hate how hard sticks feel when applied and I cannot stand gel/liquid sticks. This deodorant seems to be the perfect mix. It has a soft creamy texture that is easy to apply and does not clump up. It lasts all day and the smell is just right, a clean fresh scent. The ingredients are: Coconut oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Beeswax, Arrowroot Powder, Baking soda, Bentonite Clay, Floral fragrance. Seeing as I am able to pronounce them all, My Body Utopia has done their job! Check out the listing HERE to purchase some for yourself. At a price of only $6.99, this is a great alternative to store bought deodorant.

Next up, Crazy Clean Cotton Whipped Shea Cream:

This is a thick, whipped shea butter that leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. The smell is just as you would think from the name, fresh laundry! I have never used a lotion with this scent before and now I think I am hooked! It is really lovely. Once again, the ingredients are short and sweet: Unrefined Shea Cream, Jojoba oil, Unrefined Cocoa Butter and Clean Cotton fragrance. If your looking to try an all natural shea butter be sure to check out their entire selection HERE. They are reasonably priced at $9.99 each.

In addition to the two products that I have reviewed, My Body Utopia also offers a selection of lip balms, soaps, specialty soaps and toothpaste for purchase. Everything is available for purchase at:

Perennial Essentials-6-piece Colorful Kitchen Utensil Set Review

I have been looking for a some sort of kitchen utensil stand for some time now. They seem to be the perfect way to keep your kitchen organized, while also having everything you need for cooking readily available to you. A mix of convenience and style, all wrapped into one.

This is where the 6-Piece Colorful Kitchen Utensil Set from Perennial Essentials comes in! It has everything you need for your kitchen, available on one handy spinning stand. Not only does it come with the stand, but also the utensils to put on it!
Since the day it arrived in the mail and I got the set out of the box, it has been sitting on my counter, displayed proudly. I love the convenience and that I no longer have to dig through my drawers trying to find the correct utensil. This set includes a spaghetti server- perfect for making any type of pasta without it flying all over the place, a ladle for serving your favorite soup, a solid spoon, slotted spoon, slotted spatula, and standard flexible spatula that would be perfect for pancake flipping!

The handles are brightly colored, thick and sturdy. They are rubberized for easy handling and a non-slip grip. I really love that the when you are using them to cook and set them down on the counter, the top does not make contact with the surface of the counter. This prevents unnecessary messes and extra cleanup time! If you are interested in purchasing a set for yourself, be sure to check out their Amazon Listing HERE, for the quality, I believe that this is a great price for the 6 piece set!

Thermafuse creates instant volume while adding heat protection and conditioning.

To use the product, you apply a couple pumps onto your damp hair and style as usual. The mousse is a bit runnier than other mousses that I have used in the past, however it works just the same. I love that it does not leave you with sticky residue or crunchy hair.

Old Factory Candles- Bake Shop Review

Candles are one of my favorite household items. They make the perfect gift. I don't know how anyone could be disappointed with receiving a brand new candle! When I was given the chance to review any set of Old Factory Candles of my choosing, I was so happy! With over 15 different sets to pick from, it was a tough choice! I ended up selecting the Bake Shop set with sugar cookie, chocolate fudge and cinnamon crisp. They smell exactly as you would expect- delicious!

I have to say that is the most adorable candle set I have ever owned! Despite their small size, they pack a powerful punch. They seem to burn quite slowly and the scents carry well. I love that I can burn these candles and my house instantly smells like I've been baking in the kitchen all day. The all natural soy wax burns great, leaving behind no residue. They are small, but each candle has a burn time of over 25 hours. I know that I will definitely be purchasing a few sets for gifts this holiday season!

About the Candles:

  • Handmade in the USA with natural soy wax and self-trimming cotton candle wicks. 
  • Lead-free so you can feel good about enjoying the warm, flickering glow of these candles with your family. Made only with premium fragrance oils.
  • Each gift pack comes with 3 fragrance-themed candles. They each burn clean for 25 to 30 hours. 
  • Every purchase is 100% Guaranteed. If you are not completely thrilled with the fragrance or appearance of these candles, Old Factory insists that you send them back (at their expense) and will give you a full refund.

ISA Professional- XANADU 24K Gold Vitamin C Serum Review

I have had the opportunity to try quite a few serums, lotions, and creams in the past, but I have to say that this is the most unique. I had never heard of adding gold to a serum before, but it is a treat! The gold flakes and artistic bottle give the XANADU serum a very sophisticated appearance, ISA Professional really does live up to their name. I mean, from just the bottle alone I am itching to give it a try.

About the Product:

  • 24K Gold Serum: Vitamin C - PH balanced and highly absorbable. Brightens skin, combats wrinkles and dark spots. Vitamin E moisturizes.
  • Rose Extract soothes the skin and gives the Xanadu serum a delightful natural scent.
  • Hyaluronic Acid captures and holds up to 1000 times its volume in moisture to your skin.
  • The Perfect Vitamin C Serum for your face, made from Organic botanical extracts and leading-edge technology.
  • Epidermal Growth Factor stimulates new cell growth.
This product is very easy to use and smells nice as well. It is recommended to apply 1 pump both morning and night and to avoid the eye area. As an added bonus it can be used as a foundation primer. This is great because it is one less product that you have to purchase! I am really amazed that the serum contains real gold. It is truly a luxury! The serum does leave my skin feeling moisturized and well nourished. If you are interested in purchasing a bottle for yourself, be sure to check out their Amazon listing HERE.
