Review: 12 pk Premium Moisturizing 24k Gold Collagen Disposable Eye Care Pads
$12.95 on Amazon -12 sets
I'm 35 so I'm all about any kind of anti-aging products that can help with crepey-ness under the eyes and I love any kind of eye masks so I was super excited to test this one out. I have tried similar gold eye masks before and this gives a very similar result which is extreme hydration! The masks are a jelly texture with a serum so they do have a tendency to slip and slide when I was up and moving around BUT they did stay on my face which is nice. I have noticed that this serum doesnt play well with makeup which is why I apply before a shower, leave on for about 20 minutes and my undereye area looks great for the rest of the day.
This box includes 12 uses so this will last me at least 3 months since I only use them once a week. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is having dark circles or puffiness issues. I usually have horrible dark circles and with a little hydration, they are less noticeable.

The only con that I have deals with the packaging. It is extremely hard to get the package open without quite a bit of force and I have dropped several of the eye masks on the floor because when I was taking the backing off the wrapper, they decided to take a flying leap off the other piece of the wrapper. I'm going to include a picture of the packaging that the company provided.

Review: Youcopia SpiceSteps 4-Tier Cabinet Spice Rack Organizer plus GIVEAWAY

My cabinet measures 11.5in deep, 15in high, and 14in wide for size reference. 
  • Holds 23 bottles of varying sizes - I did have some larger bottles of spices so if you have smaller bottles, you could easily fit more than I did. I had room left over in my small cabinet that I could fit the largest bottles on the side. (Pictures below) The company states that it fits 24 bottles. The company also offers smaller versions of this rack if your cabinets are smaller than  mine.
  • Labels - The rack comes with labels to put on the bottle lids so that you can see what the spices are if you don't know what the bottle looks like by sight. One sheet has been printed with common spices and a blank sheet so that it can be personalized. I didn't use them but it was definitely a nice touch to include.
  • Very easy to set up/sturdy - This rack has a kick stand on the back of it that just snaps out so that the rack is sturdy. I have tried other spice racks in the past that I was afraid to open the cabinet because I didn't want to see if it had broken or not.
  • Easy to clean - While I was organizing my spices onto the rack, I did have a mishap with a bottle that didn't have a very sturdy lid. All I had to do was take the bottles off that I had already organized (that was more irritating than anything) and run the rack under water in the sink, dry it and we were back in business.
Conclusion: Love it! The price is good, the item is sturdy and actually useful. This rack has gotten me all kinds of fired up about organizing my other cabinets and pantry. I will be spending the next 5 years doing that project, especially with two teenagers in the house!  I would definitely recommend this product if you need cabinet organziation.

    Review: D’OR24K's Instant 60 Sec. Non-Surgical Eye Lift Syringe #Dor24K #Dor24KFacelift #Dor24KEyelift

    Purchase here: Non Surgical Lifting Syringe 
    $650.00 👀👀👀👀👀
    Shipping to Virginia is listed at $10.00.

    I want to start this review out by saying that I did not realize that this item was as expensive as it is listed on the company's website. The item was sent direct from the company and when I was gathering information for this post, I almost fell out of my chair when looking at the price tag.

    I have been using one pump of the product for both eyes according to the directions on the package for 2 weeks after showering and before putting makeup on. The "syringe" applicator is a very interesting concept for packaging and initially what drew me to this item for review. It does give out a good amount of the light pink gel that is more than adequate for under the eyes and over the lids. The picture below shows how much product is given with one pump.

    For reference, I have combo/oily skin with dark circles, crepe-y under eye skin with fine lines. This product has very minimal effect on dark circles which I have in abundance. This product does help to smooth out fine lines for the amount of time it is on the skin but not for any long term effects that I have seen so far. 

    This non-surgical eye lift syringe does not like when other creams are applied over the top of it and I am very diligent about making sure that my eye area is very well hydrated prior to makeup application. I have tried to use makeup that I know how it will perform to reduce the chance that I could mistake the effects of another product for this product's effects. Unfortunately, I still have to use concealers and other cream products over the top to cover up the dark circles but this interferes with other products and it's not enough on its own to meet all my needs. What that means is that I get to save my $650.00 with $10.00 shipping.  Yay! I think that this would be good for someone with super oily skin or for someone who is looking for a one-stop shop for their skin care needs.

    Review: Monarch I 30" Swivel Bar Stool

    This stool was very easy to assemble and is very sturdy. I was able to get it together without any issue and I am not the least bit domestically inclined with putting furniture together. The design is aesthetically pleasing and works great with almost any decor because the wood/metal combo is fairly neutral. The bottom of the seat is comfortable but I have to admit that the back of the seat, which is metal, is not very easy on the back. The scroll work on the back rest is gorgeous but it's not functional for me to sit in for long periods of time. I suppose that could be fixed with some type of cushion or pillow but that ruins the way the stool looks for me.
    $89.99 with possible free shipping.

    Company info:
    The Monarch I swivel barstool's main focal point is its elegant backrest design. The interlocking scrolls with cross joints and natural wood accent makes this bar stool feeling that of an aristocrat. The Old Steele finish, elegantly curved legs, and fern design emblems complete the timeless, exquisite look of this barstool. The dark cocoa faux-leather seat is firm, sturdy, easy to clean, and will barely show any age with time, unlike lighter color cushions that show wear-and-tear more easily. Most importantly, it's comfortable. The swivel smoothly rotates a full 360 degrees. When we developed this barstool, not only did we focus on the design form, we also made sure the build quality is second to none. We are able to bring this elegant barstool to you at such an affordable price because we design, import, and sell to you directly. Similar quality chairs on the market may cost you over $200. Try sitting on one of these and you won't be disappointed!

It's not amazing quality but it's not anywhere near bad. It could be one of those items that last forever or it could tear up tomorrow.

    Review: 2PM Essentials Frosted Glass Roll On Bottles #2pmessentials

    I'm a perfume nut and I love to mix and match the ones I have to come up with new scents so that means that I am always in need to roller ball bottles to house my new creations. Not only are these gorgeous but they are frosted so that the oils that you put in them won't degrade from the sunlight in my bedroom. I have had a couple bottles of perfume or essential oils go rancid from being in clear bottles which is very disappointing. These bottles are very well made and come packaged very nicely. I haven't put any oils in the bottles yet but you can tell just from handling the bottles that they are thick glass and great quality.

    Company info:

    ✓ These metal balls have a perfect tight fit that won’t ever leak. With the bottle inverted, the weight of the steel ball creates a seal preventing oil release. A quick shake allows the release of the oil for a smooth and even application every time 
     ✓ The durable brushed aluminum cap screws on securely and protects your essential oils while maintaining an elegant look and feel 
     ✓ Certain oils & chemicals do not interact well with cheap plastic balls and possibly ruin the rolling mechanism. Stainless steel roller balls do not erode and will continue to roll on smoothly every time ✓ Our luxurious glass bottles are not painted and will not scratch easily 
    ✓ Elegant cobalt blue frosted bottles have a deep rich and dark color to prevent light damage to sensitive oils.
