Bitor Exfoliating Foot Peel

I've always taken great pride in keeping my feet in tip top shape year round. But, since baby #2 came, I've slacked. Horribly. 

No matter what creams or lotions I slather on, nor way fancy scrubby foot cleansers I use, my feet still look like this. I blame flip flops and crazy Texas weather!

I've seen a lot of ads, mostly on Facebook, for those magic foot peels that supposedly make your feet like brand new. They look creepy, making your skin literally fall off. But, it's supposed to be safe, effective, and pain free. So, I decided to give one a try.

This is the one I'm trying. The application was very easy. Now it's the hard part of waiting! I'm carefully following the instructions which say to keep my feet moisturized and not pick at the skin as it starts to come off. 

I'm on day 3 post treatment, and am noticing a difference in how my toes and heels look. Definitely look like they will be peeling soon! 

I will update with during and after pictures soon! 

In the mean time, head on over too get your own at Amazon and we can compare outcomes!

IZAR Pipe & Tube Cutter Review

We do a LOT of Do-It-Yourself home improvement projects for ourselves and for my husband's family, so I was thrilled to get my hands on the IZAR Pipe & Tube Cutter. It's the perfect size for the pipes and tubes we cut 98% of the time. And we ALWAYS seem to need a cutter, and can never find one!

This little tool is no bigger than the palm of my hand, so it fits perfectly in pockets. It can cut 1/8 inch to 1 inch diameter pipes and tubes. It comes with a spare blade, too!

Unfortunately for me, my husband loved it so much that he hi-jacked it and took it to work. He apparently uses it there a ton, and it has come in EXTREMELY handy! At least I know it works well, otherwise he wouldn't have taken it!

I'm pretty sure I'm going to be buying a lot more of these throughout this year, and probably filling some male stockings with them this upcoming Christmas!

You can get your hands on one (or more!) by heading over to Amazon at the following link:

I was able to purchase this at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion.

Are you sheet-picky too?

My husband and I are quite picky when it comes to our bedding. He works his booty off to make sure that we are provided for with everything we need and then some, so I make sure the bed is how he likes it. Soft, high quality sheets are a must for a good night's rest. 

We've probably tried every kind of sheet imaginable. All sorts of cotton, cotton blends, silk, satin, sateen, microfiber, fleece, jersey, you name it. We have out favorite go-to's for certain seasons (I have a fluffy warm white fleece set I LOVE for cold winter nights!), but finding a set for the average night has been an ongoing battle.

These satin sheets I recently found on Groupon have definitely made us both happy. I was able to get them at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion through Tomoson. I've never been too keen on satin sheets simply because of how slippy they are, and because the seams tend to come undone so easily when washed after just a time or two. They seem to me to be only for "special occasions" or JUST for looks. But not only is this set soft, and high quality, but they are thick enough to keep you warm, but somehow thin enough to let you breathe! I can't explain it! I've washed then a few times so far, too, and still the seams have remained in tact. No threads loose, no seams undone, no tears or holes. A lot of blankets slipping off, but I'm getting accustomed to moving less to try and stop that lol

If you would like to get yourself a set of this satin soft sheets, head on over to Groupon, and order them today! I'll put the link below to make it easy! I don't get paid for you clicking the link, by the way. Just trying to be helpful :)

I'm not so hot anymore, but that's a good thing!

When you take as many medications as I do, you're bound to have some side effects. My main one is night sweats. Now, that's nothing compared to what others have, but it's still bothersome, and I don't like it.

I don't like sleeping on a towel, or having to constantly change my sheets. I don't like having to sleep as far away from my husband as possible, because body contact makes me even hotter and I can't cuddle. It sucks.

I needed to find a way to not be so hot. Sleeping with a fan only does so much, and making it cold just gave me cold chills. It didn't stop the sweating. Clint got me a pillow that keeps cool, and that helped some, but there's more to me than a head.

When the opportunity through Tomoson arose to try a stray that works with your body temperature to keep you cool automatically, I knew I had to jump and give it a try. What did I have to lose? Nothing.

This stuff is like magic. It's a miracle worker. Or at least it feels like it to me. When I get ready for bed, I spray a light mist over the parts of my body that are affected by the night sweats the most.

It goes on evenly, and after a quick rub, it disappears as if nothing is there at all.
 It is scent free, phthalate free, grease free, and so much more. It is created in a way that works with your body, so when your body starts to heat up , it kicks in to cool you back down.
Talk about magic.

A Hygrometer for an inquisitive kid

My child may only be 10, but he has certain things he is highly focused in. Like really focused. A few of those things are normal 10 year old things that I'd rather he not be so focused in like Minecraft.... but others, like weather and science, I love helping him gather things to keep him inspired and keep learning in those fields.

Now, prior to being given the opportunity to review a Hygrometer through Tomoson, I had absolutely no idea what one was. But, just looking at it, I figured it was something he would like, so I got it. I had him open it, and sure enough, the squeal of excitement he let out proved me right! He knew EXACTLY what it was!

It didn't take but a few moments for him to get batteries in it, get some of his LEGO tape stuff on the wall of his bedroom, build a LEGO shelf, and stick that Hygrometer up on said shelf. He beamed with pride as he read all the information provided on it. He then proceeded to carry it around different parts of the house to see if the humidity and temperature was different, and see if he could figure out what caused the changes. Such as, he went close by the heater, and of course the humidity was lower and the temperature was higher. And in the bathroom where I had just taken a hot shower, the temperature was higher, but so was the humidity.

After investigating all of the sections of the house, he went on to the porch. It was raining outside, so he stayed under the safety of the cover. It was much colder, with a much higher humidity. 

This thing is pretty darn cool. He's checked it multiple times a day. Every day since we got it. If you'd like one for yourself, you can get it here:

Added some Bling to my car!

Back in June of last year, my dear husband got me a car. One that will fit our growing family, and then some. I love it! I love the space, I love the feel. I love the color! It's fabulous! I've slowly been adding my own little touches to make it my own. The normal steering wheel cover, sun shade, etc..  I got a dash cam in December. And that was SUPER exciting!

This month, though, I decided to add a little bling. Some glam.

I got tired of seeing the plain ol black, skinny, plastic license plate frame staring at me whenever I looked at my car. So, I hopped on Amazon, and found this Sparkly License Plate Frame from Ecooltek. It was exactly what I was looking for! In my cart it went, and 2 days later (thanks Prime lol) I was ready to glitz my car!

Not only does it include 2 frames so your front and back can match, but they give you screws, glammed up screw covers so you don't have an eyesore in the middle of your sparkly prettiness, extra rhinestones in case anything happens to your frames, and rings for your auto start! Mine doesn't have an auto start button, but you can bet I'm going to find something to do with those beauties!

The frames themselves are very sturdy, and super sparkly. The holes in them lined up perfectly with my license plate. The only worry I have is that the top line is a little thick, so it covers half of my states name. I'm not sure if that will get me pulled over or not, kind of a wait and see thing I guess.

Overall, I'm very happy with this pack, and know a few people who may be getting one as gifts!
