Review: Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler

Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler |

The Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler by Izy Trends is exactly as the name leads you to think. I've tried only a couple of eyelash curlers in my day, but I figured it was time I gave another one a try. The last time I tried a new curler was about 6 years ago. Don't worry! I've replaced the pad plenty and washed the little guy, but it's time I gave something new a try.

Review: UNi 100% Pure Argan Oil

UNi Argan Oil |

I've been hearing about argan and moroccan oils for years now. I had passed it off as just being another beauty fad, until I decided I ought to review some when the opportunity presented itself. I reviewed another argan oil last week, but this week I have an argan oil story of success to share with you. Continue on to read my review!

UNI 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil |
For review, I was sent a bottle of UNi 100% Organic Argan Oil. The oil comes in a 2 oz glass bottle with a dropper. As will other argan oils I've smelled, it has a sweet, earthy scent. Again, some people think it smells bad and like dirt, but that's not the scent I get. I guess I like the sweet smells or earthy-ness.

My Mom and I just last week got back from our vacation to Arizona to visit with my aunt, my Mom's sister. Being Arizona, it was very hot and dry. While I'm not much of a heat fan, I can handle dry heat to some degree. It would appear that my feet, however, cannot handle that much dry for that long a period. I never really get dry and flaky feet, but I did this time.

UNI Argan Oil information |
I've heard that argan oil works well as a moisturizer for your hair as well as your body, so I thought it would give it a go as a moisturizer. I applied a couple drops to my feet and rubbed it into the dry areas, then put on a pair of socks, and went to bed. The next morning I was pretty impressed with how they looked and felt, so I tried it again the next time. After the second morning, any sign that my feet were once super flaky and dry and not nice looking was GONE! I have to say, I was pretty impressed considering I started out as a bit of a skeptic. I stopped using it for a couple nights and my feet started to get a bit dried out again, and back to the argan oil for lovely, summer ready feet.

Over all, I recommend checking this argan oil out! I like the size bottle, and it's a must have for moisturizing during these hot (and dry) summer months. A must have for your summer skin and hair care supplies.

Review & Giveaway: The Pee Pocket-- Great for Boating, Hiking, Traveling and More! [7/16-- FLASH GIVEAWAY!]

The Pee Pocket front |

For review, I was sent a single-use Pee Pocket. How what is a The Pee Pocket, you may ask? It is a "single-use urinary device that allows women to stand while peeping". Naturally,  I was hesitant to try this out because 1) I wasn't sure how I left about reviewing something of this nature, and 2) I do just find squatting while outdoors. But I'm always up for reviewing something not a lot of people are likely to review. Continue on to read my review and see how The Pee Pocket might be perfect for you!

Fashion Friday: Perfectly Match Necklaces with Necklines {Guest Post}

An ensemble is never complete without the help of accessories to make or break your look. Most women make the common mistake of either over accessorizing or wearing accessories that do not complement what they are wearing. Using the wrong necklace with a particular neckline is one of these common mistakes.
