PRODUCT REVIEW: Ultimate Smile Professional Teeth Whitening by Ultimate Smile Inc

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

This product was absolutely amazing! I noticed right away my teeth and my husband's teeth getting whiter! I am choosing not to post a picture of my teeth because y'all don't want to see that and my husband won't let me take a picture of his teeth!

Just know that this product really works and earns a 5 out of 5 stars in my book!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Midori Spring Ceremonial (GOLD) Matcha Green Tea Review

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an honest unbiased review. 

Who loves tea? (((Hand up))) We drink a lot of tea in our house and when I saw this tea I knew right away that I wanted to try it! 

This product is described as Rich, smooth and creamy with a hint of sweetness when brewed traditionally. This premium product is Ceremonial Grade and is Organic (USDA, JAS) and Kosher (OU) Certified. We only select the best raw material from our tea gardens mostly from Aichi and Kagoshima in Japan and maintain the highest standards in production. Our Matcha has a fresh, sweet, green-vegetable-like aroma. The colour is a vibrant emerald green. Only high quality Ceremonial Grade Matcha encompass these features. You can enjoy Midori Spring's Ceremonial Gold Matcha the traditional way by brewing or you can create your own Matcha inspired recipe. Whichever style you choose to have your Matcha, you can experience the many health benefits it has to offer since Matcha is a Superfood.

There are many immediate and long term health benefits when consuming Matcha, which include: increase in energy without the jitters, reduce stress and improve mental alertness, improve metabolism and help with weight loss, boost immune system and reduce inflammation and help the body cleanse of harmful elements. Give back to your health and embrace the power of Matcha.

Now on to the trying of this product! I followed the directions on the little can and everything when as planned. I mixed the powder until it became frothy and then it was time for the moment of truth. 

This product was smooth and creamy, but I couldn't taste anything. It just tasted like normal water. I think I will keep trying this product to see if maybe my taste buds were off that day or something.

I give this product a 4 out of 5 based on the non-taste that I experienced.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Laundry Clothesline Hanging Rack for Drying Cloths by Pro Chef Kitchen Tools

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an unbiased, honest review. 

With a hardworking husband that has to dress in professional clothes every single day, I have to be careful how I wash his clothes. I put the washer on the "hand wash" setting and then hang his clothes to dry so I am always looking for something to make my hanging of his clothes a little easier or in a better way. 

Along came this nifty clothesline hanging rack and I was excited to try it. However, I soon discovered I cannot use it for my husband's clothes because his clothes are way to big for this little rack. I decided to try my girls' clothes with it and see how it works out. As you can tell from the pictures and video, it works much better for smaller clothes. 


When we move in to our new house I plan on having my husband hang this up in our laundry room so I can hang their special dresses, sparkly shirts, swimsuits, and hand wash only clothes on it.

I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars because it cannot be used for what I originally planned it for, but is still good for others in our house. 


Hi friends and followers, 

I have had so much going on the past couple of weeks that it is now time to play catch up on this blog. I endured 2 surgeries in the past month and we sold our house on top of all that. So life is hectic right now, but I am bound and determined to get back in to the swing of things and get my product reviews out and share our homeschool days with y'all. 

Thanks for being patient and understanding. I am more appreciative more than you will ever know! 

Best wishes,

PRODUCT REVIEW: Phytoceramides+VitaminC Serum Review by Team Innovations

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an honest unbiased review. 

So I'm getting older, and I am not happy about that fact in the least bit! I noticed my skin is changing, getting more wrinkles, etc. 

I decided to apply to try out this new product and was apprehensive at first when I got an email saying I was going to be reviewing it. Suffice it to say, the product came and I've been trying it for about 2-3 weeks now. 

The pills you take every single day before you eat and the serum you put on your face after you shower. All you need is a little serum, it goes A LONG way. The serum takes a little getting used to as it is somewhat sticky and I can feel it on my face. However, since using this product, I have noticed less wrinkles and my skin is looking healthier! 

This is not a product that can just be reviewed in 30 days, it's obviously going to take more time, but for the time being I will give it the stars I think it deserves. 

I give this product 4 out of 5 stars because I can see a difference, but I just don't like the feeling of the serum. I'm weird like that though, who knows, you could have a totally different experience! Give it a shot and find out!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Best Working Anti Snoring Devices - SnoreDeter by Mr. Bene

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

Every couple has a snorer among them, but no body wants to admit who it is, lol! However, I know that we both snore and I was excited to try this. I have severe sinus issues and can't breath sometimes during the night, which leads to snoring!

This product comes in a little circular container and includes 4 sets of these "snore relievers" to test out.

I will have to admit that it takes some getting used to when you have to stick something up your nose and sleep with it in there the whole night. It felt like oxygen tubing, but the longer you wear it, the easier it becomes.

I am the only one who has tried it so far in our house, but I do believe that it has helped curve my snoring! Of course my husband is such a hard sleeper that I don't really know if I am still snoring or not, but I do feel like I have been getting a better night's sleep! I am going to continue using these and maybe even get the other snorers in my house to try it out!

I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars because it does take a few days to get used to having a product up your nose!


PRODUCT REVIEW: Coverplug by Coverplug, Inc.

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

Electrical outlets are an eyesore and I have always wanted to try something to cover them up or make them not so noticeable.

That brings in the Coverplug. It comes in the basic white color as a wall. However, you can paint them to whatever color you like as evidenced below.

As most of you know, we are in the process of selling our house so I wasn't about to paint these awesome things right now. I will save that for the new house! However, I wanted to go ahead and try them out.

They cover the electrical outlets up, and they are amazing! The only con I have about them is that they are hard to take back out of the electrical outlet. You have to pull pretty hard.

Based on that fact, I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars and plan on buying more when we move to our new house!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Zahler Iron Complex by Advanced Nutrition by Zahler

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an unbiased honest review. 

Here is the product description for this product:

Zahlers Iron complex is a complete blood-building formula that contains the full spectrum of nutrients required for hemoglobin formation and the production of red blood cells, Iron Complex features Ferrochel, the most effective and safest form of iron with superior bioavailability. An-easy- to -digest, easy- on -the -stomach formula. Iron Complex addresses the different forms of nutritionally -related anemias due to deficiencies of iron, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12.

 I was diagnosed anemic during all three of my pregnancies and had to take iron pills during that time. 

I might of had my last child almost 9 years ago, but I still feel weak and not to where I should be most of the time, the same feeling I felt when I was pregnant because of my body lacking so much. 

I was happy to get picked to try out this product and have been using it for almost 25 days now. I feel my body starting to strengthen up and I'm not as tired as I used to be. I have seen great results with this product, mainly from inside (obviously I don't have pictures to go with that) and feel like its working for me. 

Therefore, I give this product 4 out of 5 stars, the reason being is because I haven't been on it long enough to have long lasting effects. However, if you know you are anemic or lacking in iron then you should definitely give this product a shot

PRODUCT REVIEW: WonderVeg Slicer Tri Blade Spiralizer by WonderVeg

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price for an unbiased honest review.

I was so excited to try out this product because I absolutely cannot stand chopping, cutting and spiraling any kind of vegetable. It takes so much work and I am not a patient person for all that mess! I barely have patience to homeschool 4 kids, lol!

We tried this product out as soon as it got here. My husband was making onion rings and some potato chips, well at least that was the plan.

First impressions of this product before using were great. The product came with all the pieces shown here and did not weigh a lot (I don't like clunky, heavy kitchen products) and it was just amazing to me.

Now lets get in to how it actually worked for us. Please see the pictures below. 

As you can see, we tried both an onion and a potato with this product, we did not get the results we were hoping for though. The spirals were not cut all the way through and it did not work on the potato at all. We still plan on using the product though and hope to see better results in the future. 

Based on our experience at this time, I give this product a 2 out of 5 stars because it did not work how we thought it would. However, if we end up with better results, the rating will go up and I will update accordingly. 

PRODUCT REVIEW: Natural Mosquito Repellent by Amare Terra

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free or at a discounted price in exchange for an unbiased honest review.

Mosquitoes ABSOLUTELY LOVE my blood and it annoys that heck out of me. I am allergic to their bites and I swell up wherever the bite is and it's as hard as a rock. I don't like being outside at dusk or after dark because of this.

I was excited to try this new Natural Mosquito Repellent from Amare Terra and I was praying and hoping it would work for me and my kids because mosquitoes love their blood as well.

This product initially stood out to me in several areas because of the following as found on their description of this mosquito repellent:

  • All Natural – safe for the whole family
  • An essential - oil blend including Lemon Eucalyptus – the only plant based ingredient recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • Non-toxic to humans, animals and the environment.
  • Every purchase you make provides 1 month of clean water for someone in need.
  • 2.5oz bottle - over 400 sprays!
As noted in a previous post, we went to the beach/boardwalk for Labor Day weekend and I made sure to take this nifty repellent with me!

First impressions were that the smell is not as strong with this product as with other mosquito repellents, it didn't leave a greasy feeling, and I only had to put it on one time while we were at the boardwalk. It also didn't run off with the sweat from the temperatures being so high.

We went to the boardwalk around 3 pm and stayed until after 10 pm, which means we were outside during the times I always get ate up. We rode the rides, see pictures, and even while staying stationary in a line, I never once got bit. My kids never got bit either!

 I must say that this natural repellent really worked! Based on the everything in this post, I give this product a 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to anyone that has sweet blood that mosquito's love! 

Here is a frontal picture of the bottle to make it easier to find.

 It can be purchased on their website or on Amazon. The links are as follows:
