Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bath Scale {Review}


I am a bit old school cause I enjoy the scale with the knob that allows you to set it back to 0. I always felt that it would be more accurate if it ever was to fall out of balance. I am now testing out the WeightMaster Digital Bath Scale from Ozeri which holds up to 400lbs. This is a pretty nifty scale and was impressed with its features. Now it is just a scale but not any scale and you may be thinking what more features can a  scale have that would impress you.


  • This scale allows you to set user profiles for up to 5 persons. Select your user (1-5), input your height and then step on the scale to record your weight.
  • The scale displays your BMI (Body Mass Index) for each user every time you step on the scale. Your BMI is a calculated number using your weight and height that lets you know whether you are normal, under or over weight. 
  • Every time a saved user steps on the scale and it reads the weight, you are able to see the changes in your weight, whether you have gained or lost weight. When you gain weight it glows red and if you lost weight it glows green.
  • Every time a saved user also steps on the scale, it is able to identify that specific user without having to choose which user is on the scale.


Besides the internal features of the scale, it is also built well. It is made using impact resistant glass and has non slip scratch resistant feet. It comes in both black and white so it nicely fits in with your decor.

Australian Tea Tree Oil - {Review}



I have heard so much about Tea Tree Oil, its benefits and its uses. I have used tea tree oil only when it is used in shampoos to help with itchy scalp. I have itchy dry scalp so when the opportunity came around to try 100% pure tea tree oil I jumped at it.

Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil (Available exclusively to Amazon) was nothing short of amazing. There are lots of essential oils that have been diluted to be able to sell at a cheaper price but that only cheapens the quality of the product that you buy. This is only Tea Tree Oil, nothing else. It is free of preservatives, artificial colors, fragrance, parabens, mineral oil, chemical solvents and petroleum. This is the real deal. Now I have used pure oils such as argan oil, rosehip oil & emu oil in the past but never tea tree so I was a little lost. The company however provides you with a free ebook on the uses (along with recipes) for the oil when you buy their 4oz bottle.

It comes in a brown bottle to maintain potency and has a stopper so that only one drop at a time comes through. By the way, the scent is strong, you won't miss it. That alone told me that it was not to be played with. I read that because it was my first time using I should dilute with another carrier oil such as olive oil. My use for it was to apply to my scalp to stop the constant itching. After reading the free ebook about the uses I made my own recipe. I used a combination of essential oils, using a 8oz empty bottle that was previously sterilized I added 2oz olive oil, 2oz coconut oil, 10 drops of argan oil and 5 drops of tea tree oil with 2 drops of lavender essential oil.  Shake it up and use this combination to apply directly to your scalp.

Now there are many other uses besides itchy scalp that tea tree oil is good for (as the book will go into more detail). Besides being a topical agent for your skin, it is great for hair, first aid, household cleaning agent, aromatherapy and disinfecting agent.

Take your chance with Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil with their 110% hassle free money back guarantee within 30 days.

Azure Naturals Ultimate Vitamin C Skin Repair Serum {Review}


I have used many vitamin C serums in the past and most of them I do like because you usually cannot go wrong with adding a little vitamin c to your beauty routine.

I started using Azure Naturals Ultimate Vitamin C Skin Repair Serum for over a month now and I absolutely love it. It has become one of my favorites that I would highly recommend. It comes in a easy to apply brown bottle with a dropper. The fact that it is in the brown bottle shields the light from coming in and change the properties of the serum. The dropper applicator helps you apply as little or as much as you want. Just a note; a little goes a long way (a few drops all over). I am about 95% satisfied with this product and the 5% that is missing to make it perfect for me is that it is missing the citrus scent that I prefer. And yes I am fully aware that vitamin c can be derived from other sources than orange.

It is 98% natural and 72% organic with no alcohol, no parabens, gluten free, no GMOs, plant based and cruelty free.  I have combination skin so I definitely make an effort to look into the ingredients of what I use on my face specifically. The face texture has improved with added collagen and more elastin. I only apply once a day but it can be used twice (day and night). Because there aren't any chemicals it is safe to use on all skin types.

This serum contains antioxidants vitamin c, vitamin e & ferulic acid, and also contains Organic Aloe, Advanced Amino Complex & Organic Jojoba Oil which are all good for the skin. And I am also happy that this product is backed by Azure Naturals one year money back guarantee. With that type of backing try using for it to repair sun damage, reduce wrinkles, fade age spots and more.

Adovia Exfoliating Facial Sea Salts - {Review}

If you have been reading my blog or its your first time then I would like you to know that I am an avid user of the Adovia Mineral Skin Care from Cleopatras Choice. I am now using their Exfoliating Facial Sea Salts which when used directly is best for oily skin. I have combination skin so on some days my face can be really oily and other days can get dry enough to start peeling.


This exfoliating facial salts can be used one its own or mixed with your cleanser, facial soap or face mask. This product only has one ingredient and that is fine grain dead sea salt and that is all that is necessary. Dead sea salt has many benefits because of the minerals that it contain. These salts will be able to strip away the dead cells salts no matter your skin type. If you have dry skin mixing the salts with some olive oil will help keep face radiant and receive all the minerals.

Use once a week for a more revitalizing and healthier looking face. It is that simple.

Get it at Amazon* for $19.00

Mineral Eye Cream from Adovia - {Review}


Adovia Mineral Skin Care is a brand I am always looking forward to trying out. I have never used any eye gels but lately i haven't been sleeping well and noticing that my under eyes are slightly puffy.

This mineral eye gel from Adovia is perfect for all skin types without the irritation. It delicate enough to be used around the eye area. It is also absorbed very quickly to keep around the eye hydrated through out the day.

The ingredients include demineralized water, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, chamomile extract, carrot oil, olive oil, and grapeseed oil among others. Because of all the dead sea minerals which also include vitamin E and aloe vera in this product, it will help reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. These also work together to revitalize while protecting eye area from daily damage.

I use this in the morning after cleansing my face and wear it under my moisturizer to get rid of dark circles and puffiness. It has definitely returned definition to my eye area without the lines. The cream is rich yet light with quick absorption and only a very small amount is needed during application. It is also unscented.

Get this for $29.00 on Amazon.

Ice Ball Mold {Review}

I love hosting, having gathering and/or attending gatherings of all sorts. There are so many ways of bringing that extra special moment to the party.


I enjoyed the idea of creating round ice balls rather than the usual square ones. This ice ball mold set comes with 3 balls and the funnel which makes it easier to input the water and/or any liquid.

The Set of 3 Molds
If you are tired of using the fake ice balls and want something that can be reused numerous times, this is the mold for you. The concept is simple and easy so that it can be used by almost anyone. There are preset lines on each mold to let you know where exactly you need to stop when adding the liquid. My only setback was that the lines are too high and this causes the liquid to over flow. However, as I said earlier that the concept is very easy and so all you must do is fill just under the preset lines.

When it is set, I run it under some warm water for about 10 - 15 secs to loosen it a bit. I pressed the bottom to push it up and out. Now if you notice that for a small glass, the ball if very big so I would recommend that you use them in a tall, larger glass or a small pitcher. Note well that they do not dilute quickly (slow melting), so drinks stay cold longer than normal.

Highly recommend for whiskey and/or any other liquor. Use it for kids parties in the pitchers and even when you are going outdoors for bbqs.

For the set of 3 including the funnel goes for $13.97 on Amazon.

HSI Professional Argan Oil - {Review}


SOFT, SILKY & SMOOTH


**No Hassle**

This is not a commercial or even a proposal but when I give it a headline stating soft, silky & smooth, I am speaking about what I always want my hair to be. Needless to say without the hassle!!. Nowadays there are so many products out there and with relaxed black hair, the products do not tend to work as well as stated.

I am always applying heat to my hair either by blow drying, flat iron, curling iron or sitting under the hair dryer. We all know that heat is not great for our hair especially relaxed and damaged hair.

This Leave In Hair Treatment with Argan Oil from HSI Professional is a great addition to your hair care regime. This oil only needs a few drops to be added to wet or dry hair to help protect hair and leave hair soft. It can be used before blow drying or flat ironing to prevent the heat from continually damaging your hair.

I have been applying this oil daily because I absolutely love the soft silky feel after application and because I tend to flat iron minimum once a week so I need the protection. It has a very mild scent to it and a definite shine after application. With continued use you will start noticing that your hair is softer, more manageable and shinier without too much effort.

This oil also does not weigh down your hair like lots of others do. This oil is also specially formulated to be used together with HSI Professional products. It comes in 2 sizes, 2oz & 4oz and of course I am able to provide you with coupon codes for additional saving on your purchase.
