Let's Talk About Poop Bags!

If you have a dog you will understand. I have never bought poop bags before. As someone who has asked for them for Christmas, I was very excited to get a chance to try this product from Planet Wise. My first impression was, "wow these poop bags will last me more than a year!" 630 bags is A LOTTA bags. Then I noticed the adorable little bone-shaped poop bag holder that attaches to the leash. This is great because you will never forget to bring along a bag…just in case.

What I love the most about this product is that it is eco friendly. I usually just use old grocery bags, which get bulky and are just plain annoying. These bags are all natural, they are strong, and they are super easy to use. You really can't beat the price for a box of bags that will last such a long time.

You can buy them on Amazon.

Valentia ~ Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

You probably already know I am a big fan of Valentia products. I have used them frequently, all different products, and I continue to be impressed by the company. I love the simple, sleek packaging that they sent their products in; the quality of the bottles used; and of course the product itself. Most recently I tested their Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer and it did not disappoint.

Firstly, this is quite a large bottle at 4 oz. for only $25. It will last a long time. Which is great and fine, because the pump dispenser means that it will not get contaminated through contact with the air. I use this moisturizer morning and night after I apply my serum. The scent is great and it makes my skin feel super fresh and dewey. 

Valentia reports that the moisturizer helps to lighten hyper pigmentation marks and enhance the radiance of your overall complexion. The ingredients are impressive and here is a list of the specially selected ingredients in the lotion:

-Botanical Hyaluronic Acid - secures moisture, supports skin elasticity, and plumps skin from within
-Kojic Acid - antioxidant that lightens skin and controls melanin to prevent dark spots
-Ginseng - fights wrinkles and brightens skin
-Safflower Oil - repairs skins natural moisture barrier
-Shea Butter - hydrates and nourishes the skin

I am really excited about this product and I love that it will last me a long time. I encourage others to try this product to nourish your skin.

Bello Vino Wine Decanter Review

Adults use a decanter when they drink their red wine. It is an important step in becoming an adult. Your red wine has to BREATHE. You have to let the tannins release to enhance the flavor and the smell. Bello Vino gave me the opportunity to test their beautiful red wine decanter and I am not an adult. I love the simple, sleek design of this decanter. The wide base allows the tannins to soften which creates a smoother, richer taste and texture that you will love. The base also creates a sturdy foundation so I don't have to worry about spilling red wine everywhere. I may be an adult, but I will always be clumsy. The spout is also spill-proof and makes it easy to pour. Thank you Bello Vino for creating this wine decanter for the clumsy adults out there. And a shout out to anyone that has been scared to drink red wine for fear of stains.

One more thing I love…dishwasher safe. Yes!

You can purchase one on Amazon.

New York Biology Anti Cellulite Massage Oil

We all have cellulite. Let's just be honest about it. We shouldn't be ashamed of our bodies and pretend that we don't have it. But! If you want to reduce the amount of cellulite you have, for me its thighs and but, there are things you can do. I have recently become a fan of dry brushing…I'm trying it at least (it also reduces dead skin cells!). I also recently started using this anti-cellulite massage oil from New York Biology.

First the ingredients:

~Grape Seed Oil - has astringent qualities; it is regenerating, moisturizing, and tightening for the skin
~Eucalyptus - targets fat deposits just under the skin; also soothes painful cellulite sensations
~Lemon - stimulates circulatory system and improves microcirculation, relieving pressure on veins
~Grapefruit - diuretic and lymph tonic

Have you ever heard that if you know how to pronounce the ingredients it is quality ingredients? These are super oils and you can feel them instantly when you massage it into your (cellulite prone) skin. I am so impressed by the ingredients list and love that I can really smell the Eucalyptus. It makes me feel like my pores are opening up and absorbing goodness. It is important to put the oil on after a bath or shower when your pores are open. This is the only way for it to fully absorb. You can use it on dry skin but it will only sit on the surface of the skin instead of penetrating it. It is great to use on problem areas but also makes a great oil for regular massage. You will love the combination of oils. 

You can purchase this large bottle of oil on Amazon for only $14.95.

Sagano Natural Home Odor Eliminator

I love my dog. I love her a lot and tell her that often. The thing is, sometimes she stinks. I bathe her regularly (to her dismay), I give her peppermint in her water, but still…she smells like a dog. Sagano has a natural home odor eliminator made from 100% bamboo activated charcoal. The bag of charcoal is an air freshener and odor eliminator. It works by absorbing odors to freshen your home and to make them safer and cleaner. I love that it works without the use of harmful chemicals, and it does not cause an overpowering freshener smell in my apartment. It works simply and absorbs odors from by beloved pet and the smell of cooking (I use garlic and onion often). But it is not only an odor absorber, it also removes mold, toxins, and allergens from the air. This makes me feel good about my apartment and I don't even have to do anything. The air should be fresher and safer with this natural air freshener. Make you house not smell like a pet!
You can purchase one for yourself on Amazon.

Vermilion Bird Printed Halter Bikini Review

I love bikinis and swimsuits. If you check out my Pinterest page you can see bikini after bikini. I dream of living the salt life where I can live in my swimsuit…some day! Even though I love them, I alway end up buying them in black (occasionally a dark blue gets mixed in there somewhere). That's why I was excited to get the opportunity to try this patterned bikini at a discounted price. 

This particular bikini comes in three different colors. I ordered the blue, but you can also get it in orange and pink. I love the unique pattern and the tassel in the middle. It is something that I might not have bought, though I probably would have pinned it. As I said I usually buy my swimsuits in dark colors. I tend to buy them separately so I can mix and match them as I please. I like that I can wear this bikini with any of my black tops and bottoms, but I also like wearing the pattern together. I do wish I could have ordered these separately (and apparently you can if you contact the company) because my body is disproportionate. I have a smaller top and a bigger bottom. So of course, this bikini was a little too big in the cups and a little too small in the bottom. The size problem is not drastic and I still feel comfortable wearing the set. The straps are easily adjustable to help with the size problem on top. I really like it overall. You can purchase it here for only $23.99. I love the orange color as well as the blue.
