Great to have professional makeup brushes at an inexpensive price.

This is a great little set that I wrote about when I first started blogging.


Recently I got to use the Vander 11 Pieces Professional Bamboo Handle, Premium Synthetic Kabuki, Foundation Blending Blush, Eye, Face, Brush Kit, with carry bag.

These are quite a bit different from others, as you can see in my photos.  You have the long brushes for the eye area, and lips.  The bamboo handles of these are very slim.  Then you have the face makeup brushes, where some have long handles, and then the cute stubby ones.  The shorter ones are amazing, and so easy to handle.

The ‘Brushes are made of superior Fiber.  Made by hand with bamboo handles and the softest synthetic bristles’.  I can vouch for the softness.  They are like feathers going over the cheeks of my face.  The eye, and lip ones are still soft, but a little firmer.

They blend foundation really well20160829_12272120160829_123256.  I love that I can use a lipstick, with a…

Ednae Honey and Almond Exfoliating Facial Mask gives your face some tender, loving care

This product lasted me 8 months, using it weekly. My skin feels amazing, but I didn’t see any improvement.


I love the Ednae brand of creams.  Over the past year I have had a face moisturizer, and body butter from them.  Both products were excellent, and I love that they were made up of only ‘ best natural ingredients available . PARABEN FREE. Not tested on animals – Cruelty free, Anti Aging ingredients making the skin look and feel more youthful.’

The Honey and Almond Exfoliating Facial Mask, goes on easily.  It is slightly runny, and has the gritty feeling that all masks have.  You only use a tiny amount, so that small jar will probably last me 6 months, if I use it once a week.

The smell is of the almond, and it is very pleasant, when on your face.  The skin tightens a little, so you know that it is working.

It can be left on anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes.  I left mine on the…

CoSoMo Body Massager, Skin Scrubber, Cleansing Face, Reviatlizing, Waterproof brush, Microdermabrasion, Exfoliate, Pore Minimizer,

At ages 69, and my husband 83, we have aches, and pains.  As well as sport injuries for me.  So I was delighted to receive the CoSoMo Body Massager, that is also a Skin Scrubber, Facial Cleanser.

I have big foam rollers to help with my back, and shoulders, then a sports one, that has balls at each end.  I use both of  these to help with the blood flow in those areas.  I have to lay on the floor for the back one, and manually do both.  That is way I couldn’t wait to try the new one that is battery operated.

Well I tried it on my husband’s back, as you can see in the short video, and photos.  He said it was amazing.  I then used it on my right knee, that gives me pain, my left shoulder, and the back of my neck.

A couple of years ago I used sport’s gels, and sticks, or muscle rubs, but they didn’t help at all.  My monthly massage, I treat myself too, means I come out a new women.

I can honestly say that this really did help me.  I used it before going to the gym this morning.  While at the first one I did stretching, balancing on the upside down BOSU, doing squats, and then lifting the kettle bell.  I did that for 30 minutes.  I then went on a couple of machines, as my next stop was my boxing session with my  trainer.

He had me do 3 rounds with him, and in between burpees while sitting on, and punching the heavy weight bag.  I had no breath left, and could barely speak, but I have had no pain whatsoever.

Therefore I can testify that the CoSoMo Body Massager really worked for me.  I plan on using it every morning, because I go to the gym 6 days a week, and walk on the 7th.

I haven’t tried it on my face yet, but know that if it works this good on my body, my face is in for a treat.

I received this product for free, and can tell you that the above review is totally my own thoughts on it.

Untangled clothes with the Durable Mesh Laundry Wash Bags

Yet another early review on this site, that is worth a read. Just updated it after 10 months of using them.


I have some mesh laundry bags, but not enough for all the delicate washing I have.  I was pleased to get the Durable Mesh Laundry Wash Bags with nylon zippers set.  There are 6 bags, 1 jumbo, 3 large, and 2 medium.

So on my last laundry day, I was able to put my panties in one bag, bras in another, 2 bikinis in a different one, and my yoga pants, in a fourth one.

It was great as the bras didn’t get unhooked and ruin my other clothes.  My yoga pants/leggings didn’t rough up, as they sometimes do.

I took the bags out of the washing machine, and put them straight into the dryer, on a low heat.  All my clothes came out really good.

The bags are well made, have safe, strong zippers, that fit under a loop, so that the ends are hidden.  I love that I have…

Yoga Pants for Women Tall Running Compression Leggings Workout Tights with Pocket by Welcos

Just wore these yesterday, they still look like new, and are so comfortable.


Nowadays I tend to live in leggings, even though I live in Florida.  Firstly because I go to the gym almost every day.  Secondly they are so comfortable, and lastly it’s too hot outside, so I am always in air conditioning, and need to cover up.

The Welcos yoga pants, can be worn for walking, jogging, running, Zumba, boxing, great for kick boxing, and lifting weights.  They are nice and thick, so when bending over, or kicking they stay in place.  They are high waisted, nice and long in the legs, so don’t give me any problems at all. A couple of pairs I have come down at the waist, when working out, and so I keep them for home.

These have a good sized concealed pocket to put a key, and credit card in.  It is right at the front, which I like.

They are 88% nylon +…

CookArt have produced a perfect pizza cutter and server.

This is one of my earlier reviews that was written when I first started my blog. It’s a neat product, so wanted to share it with you. I use it once a month when my husband has pizza.



I have thrown my old pizza cutter in the trash, as I probably got it in a Dollar Tree store, and it really didn’t work that well.  The reason why, is that I have the Stainless Steel Pizza Cutter and Server by CookArt – Strong Handle No Rust Non Stick Pizza Slicer.

As you can see in my photos, it is so much nicer, than the basic type.  It is quite a bit heavier, and that is due to it being both a cutter, and a server.  Also the blade is stainless steel, which will never rust.

It has an easy to grip handle with a guard, to prevent you from touching the sharp blade.  It doesn’t matter what thickness the pizza is, it will cut through it.

I like that it is dishwasher safe, as well as washing by hand.  Not sure that I would be happy having it in…

Resting after an ambulance ride to the E.R

Around 5 a.m. I did a usual bathroom trip, but it didn’t end that way.  I had a stress induced panic attack and passed out.

When I came too, the bathroom had congealed blood on the floor, and huge droplets falling.

I had a minor cancer surgery on my forehead on Tuesday, and that’s where my head hit.

I  got hubby to call 911. 7 young men were taking care of me, with only a towel draped over me.

After 5 hours, and a Klonopin, I was allowed to come home.

No reviewing for me today. Just laying in bed, and on the recliner.

Sogrand 8pcs-Pack, Outdoor, Solar Landscape, Pathway Lights, for Lawn, Patio, Yard, Walkway, and Driveway.

I have some really beautiful solar lights for my driveway, they are the Sogrand 8 piece solar outdoor landscape lights.  These are black ones, and have 6 little windows on each side.  They really sparkle inside the bulb.

There are 8 bulbs with solar panels on the top, 8 posts, and stakes.  So simple to set up, as you push the post into the light, and the other end into the stake.  Set them in a sunny spot in the garden, and let them charge up.

I go out just before dusk, and twist off the top, and push the switch to the on position.  Then put it back on.  The lights are a bright white, and underneath them you see I believe 9 squares of light.  Unfortunately they didn’t show up that well in my photos, but looking out at them, the patterns are so pretty.

These are energy saving, as you are using solar power, instead of batteries or electricity.  They stand up to rain, and wind, so are certainly weatherproof.

I was lucky enough to receive these beautiful lights for free, and have fully tested them.

Sogrand 2pcs-Pack, Solar Post Lights, Fits 5 Post Sizes with Adaptors Copper Finish Vinyl Bright Sturdy and Big.

What a neat idea, lights for posts.  I have seen them on walls/fences around communities, but didn’t realize you could buy them for your yard.  The Sogrand 2 piece solar post lights, with a copper finish vinyl are elegant looking.

Not all posts are the same size,  so they come with 5 adaptors, from 3.5 inches, through to 5.5 inches.  There are also batteries supplied, to be inserted into the compartments.

I put mine outside early in the morning, as the sun is up before I awake, and doesn’t go down to almost 8.30 p.m.  I then switched the on/off button to the on position.  I had them on my wall at the back, and looked out to see this warm yellow light.  It looked so pretty.  It was still on when I went to bed at 11 p.m.

I have had them working for several days now, and love the ‘little house’ type light.  The diamond shape on the outside, makes me think of the Dicken’s era. Having been born close to Rochester, England, where the bard was born, makes me think of home.

Of course you will be saving energy as they are solar lights.  There are batteries in them for backup, so you might have to replace them from time to time.

I did receive these for free, and have been honest in my opinion of them.

ZooBamboo Air Purifiers by (2x75g + 1x200g) | Bamboo Charcoal Deodorizer Car Refreshener Home Odor Eliminator Mold Remover Moisture Eliminator and Dehumidifier for Allergies Smoke Smell and Pet Odors

I do have a 200 gram Bamboo Charcoal Deodorizer, but really wanted more, so was very happy to receive the Air Purifiers by ZooBamboo (2x75g + 1x200g) | Bamboo Charcoal Deodorizer. 

I am using my original one in our main walk in closet, but wanted another large one, for the second closet.  I just put them on a hanger, and put between my clothes.  Then once a month recharge them, by putting them in the sun, for an hour.

The smaller ones will be used in my gym shoes/equipment area, and the other small one by my husband’s shoes.

From the Amazon website: ‘Our Air Purifier bags purify the air around you with the Powerful and Natural Properties of Moso Bamboo Charcoal. Use as a Whole House Air Freshener for Home or as a Car Purifier, Car Refreshener, Baggage Travel Insert, Moisture Eliminator, General Mold Remover, in your Bedroom Furniture, Bathroom, Laundry Basket, Backpack, Suitcase, Carry On Luggage or Garment Bag. Place in a Room to Remove any Unwanted Particles in a Safe and Natural way.’

It is natural, and works so much better than Damp Rid.  Once purchased it is cost saving, as it doesn’t have to be replaced, or added to, like the Damp Rid. 

My first one is still working great, and I am confident that these will do the same.

I did receive this product at a discounted price, and wanted to share how great these are, with you.
