PRODUCT REVIEW: UGlee Ergonomic Pen

The Great UGlee Ergonomic Pen Review

This is my review of the UGlee Ergonomic Pen that I was given to test and provide my honest thoughts about.

 First off, I love the durability of the pens, I go through pens like there is no tomorrow. I found that it's pretty hard to do much to damage them, they are very forgiving for being thrown in the bottom of my purse (which is a disaster o.0 ) and everywhere else that I end up finding them.

Second, They (as promised) are very comfortable, and they do lessen strain when writing especially for long periods of time. They have a very durable jelly like cover on the body of the pen (not the type that peel off, they are firmly attached, which gives a good grip but very soft for comfort as well.

My final rating is an A.
Reasons being: Very easy to write with. Very comfortable. Lived up to my expectations. The only issue (which really wasn't an issue) was that to get a good flow, you have to keep the pen straighter and i'm more of a  slanted writing girl :)

This is my personal review of the PottyCovers toilet seat covers.

First off, I am a mommy of two young children as most of you know, in reviewing these I fell in love with them right away as did my girl's. I am not just saying this, i am kind of a germ freak anyway, but when my girl's were potty trained at an early age I was very uncomfortable with them going to public restrooms because we all know how dirty they are >.<

The covers that are in restrooms (usually only a few places anyway) are thin, absorb whatever they come in contact with, are difficult for me to keep centered on the toilet seat let alone my children, and they are definitely one time (if any) use.

Not so with PottyCovers! These are one of the best creations for my family that I have found. They are very compact and portable (I just put a few in my purse), they do NOT absorb even if the seat is already wet, they are easy to place on the seat and they STAY and cover the front and sides as well (right where kids feet or hands touch), and best of all for me they allow me and both my girl's to use one without any need to use more than one per potty time.

I give this product a 10 out of 10 for doing what the package said it would, I think this is a great product for children as well as adults, the price is very reasonable especially since you can use them for more than one person at a time.

I will be buying these again, I have made these a staple product in my home.

If you would like to try this great product out or learn more info, go to their website http:/www.pottycovers.com

A 6 pack of PottyCover sells for $5.99 and it is available on Amazon, Ebay, all Buy Buy Baby stores around the country and at select Bed Bath & Beyond stores.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using>. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

[PRODUCT REVIEW] Huetiful Hair Steamer

 This is my personal review of the Huetiful Hair Steamer.

   My hair has been neglected for too long, with a family, my own business, and my never-ending "to do" list, I felt that caring for my hair was just another thing to take up time. However, recently my hair has been screaming "don't forget about me" waking me up to the fact that I need to take better care of it. But where to start? Between split ends, Dullness, Itchy scalp, and limpness, it seemed a little overwhelming. 

  I saw a post about a giveaway for the Huetiful Hair Steamer. It's claims were "Huetiful Hair Steamers are specifically designed to resolve the most challenging hair frustrations – dry hair, breakage, split ends, and scalp itch/discomfort"

  So I entered figuring it was worth a shot.........and I won.

  Putting it mildly the Huetiful Hair Steamer is AWESOME! The pictures that follow are my hair "after" the first use. The first thing I noticed was SHINE and it felt so much better than before, and even had alot more body than it has in a looooong time. I actually felt as if I were at a spa! It was VERY easy to set up, my first use took less than an hour including washing, pre-treating my hair as directed for 10 minutes, the steamer setup, hair steaming for 20 minutes, and a facial steam. It was very relaxing, the next time I use it I would love to put a few drops of essential oils in the water as others have done. 

  Things I absolutely LOVED:

 I love the fact that it it so versatile. Even though this product is directed more toward women with curly hair, it worked PERFECTLY for my European hair (straight, fine, med thickness) (although I am looking forward to my curly-haired daughters trying it out as well)

 Also, it has a facial steamer attachment that is wonderful.

It is a great product that gives the ultimate experience at home, and since I am so busy, it saves time that would otherwise be spent on going out to a salon, waiting forever, then spending more than I want for one treatment.

 The shampoo, conditioner, and hair masque worked great. The shampoo is sulfate-free and has tea tree oil in it and smells like tea tree oil. The conditioner and masque are light-weight but very moisturizing and smell like peppermint candy. They definitely add to the relaxing spa effect. 

 Things I would change, recommendations:

   Nothing,  I was really happy with this product.

  Is it worth the $$$?   YES, just a few facials alone would cost over a hundred dollars, yet with this steamer you can get YEARS of use out of it AND get better healthier hair as well.

  Their website (www.behuetiful.com ) now has the steamer on sale,

  BOTH the Hair Steamer and Facial attachment is only $119.95 (reg price for steamer alone is $134.90)


Steamer $114.95

Facial attachment $19.95

  If you are still debating trying this out, they have a 100% Money Back Guarantee, 45 Day Return Policy, and Free Shipping both ways! Try it out, maybe you will love it as much as me.

  Thanks for reading my review! Check out my photos below. :0)

Disclaimer: I won this product in a giveaway.  I was under no obligation to review it nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product. These are my personal honest opinions of this product.

Easy Fried Rice Recipe (Thats Healthy)

Here is my famous Healthy Fried Rice I am posting some pics so you can see how easy it is to make :0)

My fried rice :

3-4 cups uncooked rice (This works with many types of rice, my fav is Jasmine, but in these pics I used regular Long Grain White rice.

Oil 1 Tbsp.

water (when adding to rice put enough to cover rice by an inch (no more or it will be gobby) If you didnt add enough water, even if its cooked a little , just add a little more if needed it wont mess up the recipe.

Spices to taste (Garlic Powd, Onion Powd, Cilantro) Many variations, use what you like best!

A good skillet or wok

A Spatula

                                               Below is what it should look like when you put the rice in your skillet on high heat with a little oil (I used Coconut) and stir to coat all the rice this "toasts" the grains and makes for more flavor.
                                      This is what I do to toast my grains until a few are brown I think the flavor is better.
                                      When it is the grains are toasted to your liking (for me about 5 min) Pour the water over the hot rice (careful it steams pretty good  and might burn if your too close) now is the time to put in whatever spices or goodies you want. ( I put garlic power, a touch of cinnamon, sea salt, red pepper powder)
                                        Now leave on Med- High until the water is absorbed (do not stir until all the water is absorbed) This is what it looks like when done! Soft Fluffy Flavorful Rice (all in aprox. 20 min for 3-4 cups uncooked rice)

Serve with anything you want! Great with Stir-Fried veggies, In Tacos, Asian foods, or just as a side to any meal!


Southern Sweet Potato Pie :0)

Here is a quick shot of my Sweet Potato Pie I took (before it was devoured and made history by my fam lbvs) :0) It is def a staple in my home.
