VitaJuwel

vitajuwel

Vitajuwel is a company which offers gorgeous glass decanters and gem vials for the sake of creating gem water.

I have heard about gemwater but I wasn’t sure about how to go about trying it out. To be honest i was a little afraid to try it out, I couldn’t find the right information on making gem water.

I found the solution through Vitajuwels and I was ecstatic to receive a free product in exchange for an honest review.

Here is a little bit of information about gemwater:
The use of gems to vitalize water is a traditional art which was already known to the ancient Greek and wise men and women during medieval times. Recently, this old tradition has been rediscovered. Gemstones have the ability to store energy. That effect makes quartz watches work, for example. Each type of gem, by nature, has its unique kind of energetic information.

Many water drinkers can taste a difference in water, to me, water tastes different from different faucets and different temperatures. I can tell the difference in a blind taste what water comes from what faucet in my home. Crazy right? But I swear by it. Different water tastes different!
Vitajuwel offers 12 different mineral combinations.

I got to test the Wellness vial, which is comprised of three of my favorate gems, Amethyst, rose quarztz and rock crystal (if you are terribly interested, my favorite is amethyst.)

The gem wands are handmade by master glassblowers in a patented, artisanal method. They use exclusively fairly-traded gems and lead-free Bohemian glass. I was so blown away but what a beautiful piece the Wellness wand is. The vial is truly a work of art. It is gorgeous and impeccably crafted.

The decanter is beautifully crafted as well.  I would also highly recommend the retainer chain which holds the vial in place.

I love these pieces so much, I think they are wonderful and since I have had them, I have used them every single day. I am drinking more water than I ever have had in my life. The water tastes great and the set are so beautiful.

This basic, well-balanced composition is used to vitalize water for hundreds of years. Crystal experts claim that amethyst strengthens awareness and rose quartz fosters tranquility. Either way, having this original vial and a decanter by VitaJuwel on your dining table or office desk will remind you to drink more water. Most customers find gemwater made with this blend to taste smooth and mild. If you’re unsure, with which blend to start your VitaJuwel collection with, choose this one!

You can order a vial here: http://www.vitajuwel.us/en/shop/vitajuwel-wellness-grundmischung-detail
This would make a great gift for any new age enthusiast, wine drinkers, water drinkers. The sleek and modern feel of the decanter balances well with the gems which are, of course, very old.

This would be a nice house warming gift, especially for a couple whose styles sometimes clash ( if you watch HGTV you know they exist!)

I am not a doctor, nor a health expert or gemologist or anything that can back up that having your water charged with crystals can have a positive impact on your overall health.

I do know that this water tastes better to me than straight from the fauct, and I do know that having a decanter full of good tasting water sitting around has helped me include more water into my regular diet. One of the first things any heath, beauty or lifestyle expert will tell you is to drink water. I know that VitaJuwels is helping me to live a healthier lifestyle.

Also, Vitajuwels is a member of fair trade minerals and gems, which is a cause very near and dear to my heart. I love minerals and gems but I try to buy products that are fair trade.

AmicaFox Clothing Review

10527506_578589116968_4165719240339353685_n
I think my favorate thing about this brand is the positive and exciting vibe that exhists around it. The story of how Amicafox came to be explains that feeling:

Amicafox is the brainchild of 2 best friends who bonded over a love of travelling and timeless adventure as they experienced the wonder and beauty of our magical world. The brand was born during those exciting times, and naturally takes its pattern and directional inspiration from places of wonder and natural beauty across the length and breadth of our amazing planet. These include the Amazon rainforest, the Sahara desert, the Great Barrier Reef, Sedona, the pyramids of Giza and the ashrams of mountainous northern India.
The concept behind Amicafox blends and combines two strong and constant symbols in their lives – loving friendship and the sexy and fun vibe inspired by the fox totem. Amica is the Latin for loving friend, while the fox stands for luck and playfulness as well as combining the energies of mischief, magical allure and opportunity. It also stands for sassiness and style, foxiness, dressing up, for fashion’s ever-changing looks – the perfect combination for a new and exciting fashion brand.

Amica Fox is currently offering a fabulous selection of high quality and unique leggings and dresses.
It was really hard to choose a piece.
I love wearing leggings in winter and rainy day, and have been looking for more exciting ones than the black I usually wear all winter and fall.
I especially love the Om Ganesh leggings.
Utimlatly dresses are a weakness of mine and I received the RAWR dress to review. There was something about it that I just loved. The bold lion roaring on the front is so indictative of a strong person.

You can get one here: http://www.amicafox.com/products/dresses/rawr-dress

I am a size 6 and I got the large and it fits pretty perfectly. I feel really amazing and thin in this dress.
It is made of great material that helps flatter my curves. I love the cut of the top and love how it flatters my neckline.
The dress is short and daring, however, unlike many dresses, I haven’t had a problem with the dress riding up on me.
These clothes are definitely not for the faint of heart. They are made to be bold, and express your individuality. These are for women who want to stand out!The high quality of the cut of the dress makes it possible to dress it up or down according to your mood.

I would recommend Amicafox without hesitation!

Review- Ageless Derma

(I received a free product in exchange for an honest review)

I am excited that Ageless Derma was willing to sponsor this post. Ageless derma offers many products including; aging eye treatment, skin whitening products, mineral makeup, anti-wrinkle cream, treatment for dark circles, Hyperpigmentation treatment, and products for puffy eyes and firming cream.

I was given a free Ageless Derma Satin lip gloss in exchange for a review. The color is the one downfall on this product. The texture feels amazing. You can feel your lips being nourished and it leaves them super soft. This gloss contains vitamin E, grapeseed extract aloe vera, green tea extract, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, and peppermint oil. These are all amazing for your skin and lips. This product is not gluten free.

The color is called ruby, if you are familiar with the jewel ruby, it is pretty dead on. it is more pink red than deep red. Which means you only need a little bit to make an impact. I found that the gloss color stained my fingers, I would recommend picking up a brush to apply the gloss to avoid this.

This product is really perfect for women who love chapstick, and don’t care for gloss or lipstick. This is a way to nuture your lips and give them a little healthy tint.

Review- Lens circle.com

I am reviewing the Magic series colored circle lenses from LensCircle.com. I received this product free from lenscircle.com. (http://www.lenscircle.com/magic_circle_lens_black_2_color_contacts.html )

My package from Lenscircle.com arrived quickly and was packaged safely in bubble wrap. I was really impressed with the condition they arrived in, they also included instructions on how to open the lenses, which may not sound like much, but trust me, when you don’t have those directions and you cut your finger on the metal wrapper, you definitely become grateful for those instructions. They also came with a coupon code and a cute fuzzy bag.
I was initially hoping for a more black-out effect, however the enlarging effect achieved was amazing. I love this lens for when you want a change to your eyes that isn’t as dramatic as a color change might be but still makes and impact. I don’t know if I would wear these as a cosplay, but they make a fantastic way to jazz up my normal eyes. I really liked the way they showed up in the photographs.
Comfort wise, they weren’t quite as comfortable as other lenses I have worn before. I knew they were there, but they weren’t painful.

Review- Build a Bear

buildabear(I received a free product in exchange for an honest review)

When I was 13 my family took me to the Mall of America, (you know you are a teenager now, you hang out at the mall. Cute right?) which is where I first heard of Build-A-Bear. Of course, I got a dark brown stuffed bear in a red velvet dress. I named her Hannah and yes I still have her!
Since then, Build a bear has become a household name and is adding new fun characters all of the time. If you aren’t familiar with Build A Bear, I shall tell you!
At Build-A-Bear Workshop®, our mission is to bring the Teddy Bear to life. An American icon, the Teddy Bear brings to mind warm thoughts about our childhood, about friendship, about trust and comfort, and also about love.
So what does that mean? Well, you chose your toy, you stuff it to how soft you want it, and you customize it however you want. We have one in my house dressed in Army BDU’s ( a mother’s day gift from my brother while he was in Afghanistan.)
Build a bear is more than just bears too! They have ponies, bunnies, and cats!
It was this reason and more that I was so excited to be able to work with Build a Bear for this review.
I will be reviewing Jazzy Frog. The photo on the website didn’t do Mr. Jazzy Frog justice. I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled him out of the classic build a bear gift box.

Jazzy is bright green and cute as can be. My favorite thing about him is how very soft he is. He is also fuzzy and he feels amazing to hug and cuddle. I have to admit, the day I got Jazzy Frog, I was having a pretty awful day and I happened to be holding him as I was talking to someone about my bad day, and I found myself squeezing Jazzy Frog to my chest. Build a bear is cheaper than therapy!
Here is the link to where you can get your own frog just like mine:

Review: Ssh-oes

(The author would like to thank ssh-oes for sponsoring this post in exchange for an honest review)

In college I was in a production of Sondheim’s Gypsy, and during a crowd scene, I got yelled at by the director for walking too loudly.
Really. The director stopped the scene and yelled at me because I clicked my heels too loudly. Lucky for me, I have a thick skin. But that director could’ve saved his breath if instead of my character shoes I could have worn Ssh-oes.
You read that right Ssh-oes. What is that about? Here is what the website says:

Ssh-oes are comfortable heels specifically engineered and designed to not make noise when you walk. You know that “click-y” noise your heels make every time you take a step in heels? Well, ssh-oes don’t make that noise!
Ssh-oes is the only company in the world that makes quiet heels. The ssh-oes have a non-slip, sound absorbing rubber outsole and a patent pending noise reducing heel lift so, they do not make as much noise when you walk. Our patent pending heel lift also prevents against wear and tear and acts as a shock absorber to make the ssh-oe even more comfortable.
In addition to not making noise, they are incredibly comfortable! They are cushioned with memory foam and have a lycra and leather lining to make the shoe as blister free as possible. Ssh-oes are fit tested on real sized women so you’re getting something that you can actually wear and enjoy without all the pain usually associated with heels.

You can buy them at: http://www.ssh-oes.com/

The first pair I am reviewing is the Molly.

molly_beige__95422_1359056148_1280_1280

These are hands down the absolute BEST pair of pumps I have ever worn in my life. Yes, The best pumps EVER.
They This nude and clear peep toe pump and are beautiful and feel incredible. They are 3 inch heels and I never would have believed heels like this could feel this comfortable.
This is how I feel about these shoes.

Kelly
These high-voltage ssh-oes are instant outfit transformers. Turn any outfit into a strong style statement with these hot pvc sky high wedges.
These were a blast to wear out on a girls night! My friends went crazy over them!

Review- Mally Cosmetics

I received the following products for free in exchange for an hones review.

Sometimes it is amazing to live in the year 2013. We have internet, smartphones,
As crazy as it may sound The products from Mally Cosmetic feel truly futuristic.

face_evercolorporelessfacedefender_photov03_enlarged_image
When I opened the Mally Poreless, I found a nice metal compact with something clear in it. I was so confused. Then I realized that the clear stuff WAS the product! I was so surprised! I was expecting a powder! The product I was looking at in confusion was Mally’s Evercolor Poreless face defender.

It is without a doubt the lightest thing next to wearing no makeup at all.
Here is the description from the Mally website:
Mally’s Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is the perfect finishing touch for your makeup. This remarkable technology yields an utterly sheer, featherweight product that diffuses the look of pores, minimizes fine lines, and helps protect your makeup so it lasts from morning to night. Face Defender gives you that flawless matte finish without the dry, ashy look of powder. The result is silky smooth skin and longer-lasting makeup. It comes with a unique buffed-edge Japanese sponge.

You can check it out and buy it here: http://www.mallybeauty.com/homepage-featured/evercolor-poreless-face-defender

Now on to the mascara.

mascara_award

Oh this mascara! I adore this mascara! This mascara is basically perfect. The packaging is so sleek and the product is just amazing! It is tempting to coat and coat it on, but only a few strokes of the wand will coat your lashes and make them nice and long and full and thick! You will love it!

Book Review: Essiantial Living

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Not long ago I purchased a fair trade body lotion. The stuff was great, but it smelled simply wretched. I went online looking for an essential oil that smelled nice and was good for skin. I searched and searched but I just couldn’t find an answer.

I have been interested in aromatherapy for some time, but it seemed like something I just didn’t have time or money to be successful at it. I have found a couple of Facebook pages that had links to recipes and they haven’t been helpful. Links are broken and you don’t get answers to questions. There is a lot of false or contradictory information in the vast stretches of our internets. It is so easy to get over whelmed and confused and you just want to give up. Then you don’t learn anything.

Enter Andre Butje and the Aromahead Institute School of Essiantial Oil Studies; who sent me a copy of this amazing book.

book-covers-500x391

I have been simply blown away by this work. The book is so easy to read and use. It is full of amazingly helpful recipes for cleaners and body products.

The thing I have been most thrilled about how very genuine this publication is. Author Andrea has been teaching classes online and in person for quite a few years. This is clear when you read her book and visit her website. I feel like the author is there with me to help me. She isn’t out to sell me anything I don’t need. I feel like she really wants to help make my life better.

To purchase the book on Amazon go directly here:

Don’t go anywhere else for aromatherapy and essential oils. I know I won’t and will be learning from Andrea online for many years!

Here is a link for the ebook! http://www.aromahead.com/blog/essential-living-aromatherapy-ebook/

To further your studies in aromatherapy, you can enroll to become a Clinical Aromatherapist online. This program is approved by the Alliance of International Aromatherapists http://www.aromahead.com/
I truly admire the initiative of people who reach out to others with their unique abilities.

So back to my original dilemma, I simply opened my book and found the solution to my problem! Jasmine oil! Which I had in my supply! Problem solved!

Here are all of the links you could need!

Review-CUE Lip Balm

IMG_3
I would like to thank Cuebalm for sponsoring this post in exchange for my honest opinion.
CUE stands for Condition. Uphold. Enrich This product does indeed condition uphold and enrich your lips.
My favorite thing about this product is that contains only three ingredients: jojoba oil, beeswax, and vitamin e. These ingredients are all natural and contain some amazing healing and helpful properties. These include natural antioxidants and emollients. If you suffer from conditions such as celiac disease or severe allergies it can be very frustrating to find products that are luxurious and healthy.
I have been keeping this balm by my bedside and put it on before I go to bed. I love that there aren’t any colors to ruin my pillowcase. It is very nourishing and feels great. It doesn’t smell or taste like a sweet or fruity flavor which I like. It leaves a nice soft natural sheen on my lips. If you love the natural lifestyle and don’t like to wear a lot of makeup, this is a great product for you. Also, Cuebalm is NOT tested on animals.
I would also highly recommend this to people who live in a hot and dry region. I am reminded of a time a few years back when my brother was stationed in Afghanistan and he asked us to send him chapstick. This would have been a perfect choice for him. It is protective and nourishing without being too girly to pull out of a BDU.
