#ProductReview: BannerBuzz Vinyl Wall Decals

BannerBuzz 1

BannerBuzz contacted me some time ago about doing a review of one of their products. After looking over their site, I discovered a wide range of products that they make available. They make vinyl banners for inside and outside, stands for holding them and hanging them, flags, window signs, table covers, and vinyl lettering. Most everything comes with a customizing option. You can completely create your own banner and wall decals. This is pretty handy for if you have your own business. The prices are amazing. I am seriously thinking of ordering some birthday banners for my kids since they are regular price $9.76 but on sale for $6.99 right now.

Well you can guess that I am happy with the product I received since I am already talking about ordering something more. I received the wall decal shown below.

BannerBuzz 2

"Every Love Story is Beautiful, but ours is my favorite." It's a lovely phrase. My dining room is where I am putting the majority of my family photos right now. I have a picture of the exact moment that my husband proposed to me. He proposed at the Ohio Renaissance Festival. I'm actually wearing the same dress I wore for my wedding in the picture. We ended up doing a renaissance theme for the wedding so the proposal picture is even more sentimental to me. I think it is super romantic. I put this decal above this picture on the wall because I think it says everything that the picture also says.

As far as putting the decal up, it is your standard process. Vinyl decals have a transfer paper with a hard paper backing. You must remove the hard paper backing so that the decal is still on the transfer paper. The transfer paper is sticky which helps you to position it on the wall without you decal not lining up or sagging. I found that it was a little difficult to remove the hard paper backing on this one. When you have difficulty, you use something with a straight edge, like a gift card or credit card, to rub the decal onto the transfer paper. I had to do this a little more often than I like, but I will admit my son kept interrupting me. When you are putting words up on your walls, you will find that the paper is a little harder to separate simply because there are so many points of contact and you don't want to risk ripping the decal.

Once the hard paper is removed, you position the transfer paper on the wall, which will stick where you put it. This should be initially repositionable. I didn't check because I liked where I put it. Then you apply the same process of removing the hard paper to the transfer paper. Using the straight edge, rub along the paper over the top of the decal to make the decal stick to the wall instead of the paper. I suggest you do this no matter how confident you are that the decal is stuck to the wall. This helps you push air bubbles that may have formed out which will ensure that your decal looks better and sticks to the wall more securely. Mine looks great and since there are no bubbles, there has not been and part that is pulling away from the wall at all. I feel that it is extremely secure. I am very happy with my decal. Their prices are great too, so I am considering getting some more for other rooms in my house.

Check out my video of installing this decal.

#ProductReview: Couture Gel Nail Polish Review #tomoson #CoutureGelNailPolish

Couture Gel Nail Polish 1

I love pretty fingernails, but I don't necessarily think I have them. I have had fake nails put on professionally three times in my life and absolutely hated having them filled or removed. The removal process is quite painful to me. Well after having kids, my fingernails have finally starting growing so that I don't need fake one put on. I like my real nails now and would love to find a fingernail polish that doesn't make them crack and peel. I have found that most polishes dry them out horribly and I end up peeling off the polish in order to avoid actual polish remover which dries them out even more. This has led me to be curious about Couture Gel Nail Polish.

Couture Gel Nail Polish 2

Couture Gel Nail Polish is free from harmful chemicals and not animal tested. It's made in the US. There are over 100 gorgeous colors. This polish is designed to dry with light. The starter kit, which I was given for my honest opinion, includes an LED Espree Salon Lamp with 30 second dry time. It also includes one color, the base and top coats of polish, a cleansing solution, a removal solution, a manicure set, a cosmetic case to carry it, and a CD detailing how to use the starter kit.

Couture Gel Nail Polish 3

The first step in using this kit would have to be to watch the CD. You should always read the instructions (or watch them) before using anything.

Couture Gel Nail Polish 4

Next, use the emery board or buffer on clean, dry nails to remove the shine from your nails. Then use a clean lint-free cloth (like kleenex but probably without oils) to wipe off any nail dust that might be on your nails. Gently roll the base coat polish between your hands to mix it. Apply the base coat to your thumb first. Using the tool with the pink tip, gently remove any of the base coat that may have gotten on your cuticles or skin.

Couture Gel Nail Polish 5

Couture Gel Nail Polish 7

Then you put your thumb in the LED lamp to dry the base coat. Yes you are going to dry each finger before moving on to the next part of the polish. You HAVE to keep the polish bottle away from the lamp and always secure the lid on the bottle in between drying because the gel polish is light sensitive. You'll ruin the polish if you leave it open to the light for too long.

Couture Gel Nail Polish 8

After drying all your fingers with the base coat, your nails will still feel tacky. They stay that way until you finish the entire process. Next you put on the actual color polish, starting with the thumb. Dry the thumb in the light and then repeat with your other fingers They say to start with a thin coat and if the color isn't dark enough, put on more thin coats until you get the intensity you want.

Couture Gel Nail Polish 9

Couture Gel Nail Polish 6

Repeat the process with the top coat polish which is sealing your nail polish. You'll still feel like the nails are tacky here, but the final step will take care of that. Using a lint-free cloth, like kleenex, to wipe your nails using rubbing alcohol (90% or higher) or the cleansing solution made by Couture. They boast that your polish will be "hard as diamonds" and last for three weeks.

Couture Gel Nail Polish 10

Here's a video of me using each of the steps so you can to what I have been referring.

#ProductReview: Sexy Maxi Rayon Summer Dress by VenJoin #VenJoinMaxiDress #tomoson

VenJoin Sexy Maxi Rayon Summer Dress 1

In the past few months I have had a couple fancy dinners and dressy work functions to attend (my husband's job) and I have discovered that I don't have a lot of dressy clothes to wear that fit. over the past almost two years I have lost 30 lbs. Some clothes that I was able to wear years ago still fit, but they are not my style any more. I need clothes that are more appropriate for a mom of two, not a college student. I'm definitely not saying that I can't be sexy, but I need clothes that are befitting my age too.

When I discovered that VenJoin was looking for reviewers, I decided to give them a try. They had this Sexy Maxi Rayon Summer Dress listed and I thought that it might be something that will be appropriate during the summer months. I tried it on as soon as I received it. I just had to find out how it would look. I ordered a large which is as big as it gets. I discovered that it has to be pulled over my head and not stepped into, but I wasn't surprised by that. I have very wide hips.

VenJoin

You cannot wear a bra with it unless you are ok with people seeing it. There are two reasons for that: 1) the section of the dress directly under your boobs is made out of a stretchy lace that you can see right through and 2) it ties behind your neck leaving your shoulders bare. I realize number two can be remedied with the appropriate bra, but you will see the band under the boobs through the lace no matter what. A black halter bra might be the solution if you are not comfortable going without a bra all together. It is tight enough that I didn't feel like I was falling out of the top and I was able to tie it so that I didn't feel like I was sagging too bad.

VenJoin Sexy Maxi Rayon Summer Dress 3

As you can see in the picture above, the dress is form fitting. I don't think that the picture is very flattering of me or the dress really, but every picture I had my husband take didn't impress me. I think that is more because I don't think I look very good most of the time. I will say that my husband thought the dress looked great. He thought it was very flattering by showing off all my curves. The only thing I would change about the dress really would be changing things about me. I feel like I would like it even more if my boobs were in a push-up bra. I felt this way every time I have worn the dress. I've worn it three times, but not all day. It is below freezing here, so the summer dress is just too cold to wear for very long. It will be wonderful during the super hot temperatures though.

About the Rayon material. I was actually surprised to learn that Rayon is made from a tree in Indonesia These trees apparently grow very fast creating a nice reusable resource. You cannot tell that this is where it comes from at all. Now due to the way this material is made, it can't be washed with normal clothes. It's actually recommended to wash with your delicates in a garment bag. It's not meant to be put in the dryer either, but rather hung up to dry. If you follow the washing instructions, you'll have a dress that feels like it should be dry cleaned, but that you can wash at home. Another thing to note, they give you an insert with the washing instructions that also include how to maintain the color so it doesn't fade. The trick to maintaining the color of your clothes is:

  1. For a small load of similar colors, pour in 1/2 cup of white vinegar with a few tablespoons of salt in cold water.
  2. Put your Rayon dress in a garment bag and soak for 60 minutes.
  3. Wash with cold water on the gentle/delicate cycle using a gentle detergent (perfume free).
  4. Hang dry

#ProductReview: Heart Wall Decal Kit by Vinyl Disorder #tomoson #heartdecalkit

Vinyl Disorder

Valentine's day Was quickly approaching when I was accepted for this review. How did you celebrate the holiday? We don't do much around our house, but I still try to do something. Valentine's Day just happens to be my brother-in-law's birthday, so it was never an important holiday to my husband's family. Birthdays are more important. However, my brother-in-law's birthday isn't exactly priority to my kids. They will grow up learning about Valentine's Day in school the way most people see it. With that in mind, I wanted to make the day at least unique to my kids. Last year, in my attempt to get my husband to think about it more as a day to express his love, I put post-it notes all around the house in places that I knew he would see when getting ready for work. On each post-it note I put something I loved about him. I think I had 20 post-its.


Vinyl Disorder 2
Vinyl Disorder 3

This year I was approved for Vinyl Disorder's heart wall decals. Sadly, I did not get them in time to use for Valentine's day. Since I didn't get them in time for the actual holiday, I decided that I would use them in my daughter's bedroom. I drew a giant mural in my son's bedroom while he was going to school or visiting his Nana. Unfortunately, I don't get that kind of time away from my daughter. I figure by the time she is going to preschool, maybe I will get around to her mural. Until then, her room needed some girly color. It's painted blue/grey. The walls sometimes look purple in the right lighting. The hearts may not be your standard wall decoration for you toddler daughter, but I decided that they would work until I find the time to draw the mural of fairies that I really want for her.


There was one decal that the transfer paper didn't cover the entire decal. I was worried about it at first, but I didn't have any trouble getting it on the wall. Here's a picture to show you what I mean.

Vinyl Disorder 8

Overall, they are very good vinyl decals. I had trouble with two of the hearts, but that was out of 21 hearts which is pretty good in my opinion. I didn't have to work super hard to get the decals to stick to the transfer paper. Rub for a moment or two the the straight edge of a gift card did the trick They make a special tool to do the same thing, but you don't have to have that to put a decal on your wall. When you get a group of decals on one page though, I suggest you cut them apart from each other. Initially I didn't do that with the first sheet of hearts and I almost ended up putting all the hearts in one tight grouping. That wasn't what I wanted so I had to cut them apart while I had it stuck to the wall It is much easier if you cut them before removing the hardback paper. I had one heart that was super stubborn and didn't want to stick to the wall, but after using my straight edge on it over and over, it finally stuck. It has been a few days since I put them up on the wall now and they are all still perfect. No bubbling or peeling. In my previous house, I couldn't get a decal to stick to the walls to save my life. Thankfully, they stick in this house just fine. They are a great product.

#ProductReview: Electric Pedicure Callus Remover by PediSoft #epdi #tomoson #giveaway



PediSoft

I am one of those people that really doesn't like to have my feet touched by strangers. It stems from having a guy being creepy in college who LOVED my feet. He always was trying to massage them when I was tutoring. It really freaked me out and now, I don't let people touch my feet. This makes it so I never get those girls days out where you get mani/pedis. The very idea of it gives me the chills. However, I REALLY REALLY want to be able to take care of the calluses on my feet. All summer, I go without shoes or wear sandals. Last summer I learned that having calluses while wearing sandals has another issue that became a very big problem for me. My calluses dried out and cracked. Every time I walked, my sores would reopen and bleed. It became quite painful to walk or wear shoes. Yes they did eventually heal, but I don't want to go through that again.

Electric Pedicure Callus Remover 1

PediSoft has given me an Electric Pedicure Callus Remover kit to try out for my honest opinion. I can't tell you how excited I was to get this. To give myself pedicures...To not have to pay someone to touch my feet when I don't really want them to...AH-MAZ-ING. As soon as the kids went to bed the night it came, I set up my camera and began recording how to use this wonderful product. You do have to charge it for 10-16 hours before using it. You also have to wash it, which really is just washing the head. This is a sanity issue. You don't want to use anything that takes skin off of you without washing it ahead of time. After washing it, make sure it it completely dry and go to town on those calluses!

Electric Pedicure Callus Remover 2

The kit comes with the callus remover, cord, cleaning brush, and extra head. Another sanity issue is that you should never use the same head on multiple people. If you do happen to have something that can be passed through sweat or even an open sore that you accidentally go over with the callus remover, you could infection another person if they use that same head. You are supplied with two so you can actually have two people using your kit without any health issues.

Electric Pedicure Callus Remover 3

You can see the before and after of one of my feet above. I did do both feet, but I only took pictures of the worse one. I ended up doing my entire foot. You are only supposed to hold the device next to the skin for 2-3 seconds and then look to see if you need to continue. I just moved around my entire foot so no single area was because overdone with it. Once you start removing calluses, you'll be amazed at all the dead skin on the rest of your foot that can be removed. I do recommend that you stop using it from time to time, use the cleaning brush, and brush out the dead skin that gets stuck under the head.

Electric Pedicure Callus Remover 4

It works great though! My feet feel amazingly better. Since I have never had a pedicure before, it took me an hour to do both feet. Now that I have done it once, it really shouldn't take very long to keep my feet in great callus-free order. Definitely a great tool to have if you can't afford regular pedicures or are like me and don't like people touching your feet. By the way, it has a lifetime guarantee.

My Little Book of Blessings by Jennifer Dewing I See Me! #BookReview #ProductReview

Personalized Children's Books

My Little Book of Blessings 1

I See Me! creates priceless customized books for anyone. They are geared mostly for children, but who doesn't like a personalized gift? These books are super cute and the poems in them can even be appropriate for adults. I was contacted by I See Me! to review their newest book which releases on the 23rd of this month. My Little Book of Blessings has short poems/blessings that your child can learn to recite daily as part of their prayers. Many of them are blessings on the child for whom the book was made. I made it for my son, Drake, because he is starting to put words together and has the best chance at understanding it. My daughter is only one right now.

As you can see from the picture above, his name appears on the front cover replacing the "My" in the title. I love the cover. There are cute little animals all looking at the title of the book with this expression like that are curious who Drake is. The inside front cover is personalized even more with his picture and a message from his dad and me.

My Little Book of Blessings 2

Each two-fold page has a different blessing with its own unique art that depicts some portion of the poem. For instance, the first blessing is for "Helping Hands" and the picture shows kids helping hang laundry on a line outside. Other blessing in the book are: "Daily Blessing", "Earth Blessing", "Bless the Animals", "Friendship", "The Golden Rule", "Love One Another", "Bless this Food", "Nighttime Blessing", and "Sweet Dreams Blessing". On the "Friendship" blessing and the "Love One Another" you have the option to list some friends you child would specifically bless (up to four) and family members (up to eight). I of course personalized those pages. My son actually has four friends right now who happen to all be brothers. For family, I listed his grandparents, parents, sister, and godparents. All people that he loves dearly. This will hopefully bring more meaning to the blessings as he learns them.

My Little Book of Blessings 3
My Little Book of Blessings 4

I don't want to give away all the poems because I think they have a deeper impact on you, the adult, the first time you read them. I did take a picture of "The Golden Rule" which will give you an idea of how they are formatted and type of language used in the entire book.

My Little Book of Blessings 5

It's an adorable book. I absolutely love it. I hope that my son learns to recite the blessings on a regular basis. He loved the book by the way. He was thrilled to see his picture in the front and the names of his friends and family. He listened to me read the entire book to him. He kept asking which child in the illustrations was supposed to be him. We found one that he liked on most of the pages. It's a wonderful book!

You can find My Little Book of Blessings at http://www.iseeme.com/my-little-book-of-blessings-personalized-book.html on February 23rd!

#ProductReview: Silicone 3 oz Travel Bottle Set with Bag Pack #TravelRebel



Everyone that travels knows that it is a pain to carry around shampoo and conditioner. That's why most hotels provide you with those little sample bottles. I, however, have very sensitive skin and my hair is really fine. Hotel samples dry out my scalp and cause my hair to tangle. The "squeaky clean" idea for hair is a big no no for me if I want to have a chance of ever getting a brush through it. For this reason, I HAVE to bring my own shampoo, conditoner, and bodywash. In the past, I have purchased those little plastic bottles that you can find in the grocery store or drug store, but they only last so long. Once you get to the bottom of the bottle, you squeeze them and they crack. Pretty much they are good for one or two trips. When I have them available to me, I have also used medicine bottles. I'm talking those brown prescription bottles for like cough syrup. The lids never come loose because of the child lock on them and they are a little more durable than the plastic travel bottles. They do eventually crack and break as well though. Very frustrating when you discover they have done that inside of your bathroom travel bag. You can't take the entire bottle of shampoo and conditioner with you because those eventually explode inside your luggage. Then there's also the problem of if you're getting on a plane...Large bottles are confiscated. You have to have only a certain amount in your bag for it to be ok to put on a plane. The solution? Perhaps it's Silicone bottles.

Silicone 3 oz Travel Bottle Set with Bag Pack 1

First, these bottles feel funny since they are silicone. That's not bad. I put shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in them. I didn't have any travel plans so I tested them in my home. The first thing that I noticed is that there is no way to identify what is in each bottle unless your bath products are different colors. There are two blue bottles, I made sure not to put my shampoo and conditioner in those because I wouldn't be able to tell them apart. Instead I put shampoo in one blue bottle and body wash in the other since my body wash is orange. My conditioner was put in the white bottle. I think there needs to be a way to label them somehow though.

Each bottle has a little suction cup on it so you can stick it to the wall or perhaps glass door of the shower. If you do much traveling,especially with other people, you know that you run out of room in hotel bathrooms quickly. The suction cups will at least help with the space issue as well as telling your bath products apart from other people's.

Silicone 3 oz Travel Bottle Set with Bag Pack 2

When you squeeze the bottle, your product comes out, but doesn't squirt uncontrolled. There is a "no drip" function similar to "no-leak" sippy cups. There's a little piece of rubber in the cap that keeps it from leaking out. That also keeps excess air from getting in the bottle and therefore lets you empty the bottle more efficiently. Speaking of the cap, I was nervous opening them. It felt like I was going to pull the lid right off, but that didn't happen. You think you will just because of how squeezable the silicone bottles are.

I'm very happy with them, even though they didn't stay stuck to the wall over night for me. I think that I didn't push hard enough on the bottles though. It could also be related to the type of tile or cleaning supplies I use. Overall, very nice product. I like the travel bag they come with to help keep the bottles away from your other travel accessories.
