Espresso - The Real Deal

Espresso maker, please visit my video on YouTube for directions. It can replace the older models, it is a good weight and perks a quad shot of espresso from start to finish it takes about ten minutes. The silicon handle is a plus so you don't burn yourself. It has three you can change from yellow to red or teal. It comes with directions and extra seal. It is stainless steel very sleek and fits with most decor either on the counter or stove top. I hope you enjoy as much as I did. 4 stars
I received this at a deep discount, this is my honest opinion of this product.

Keeping your skin hydrated

  AVEENO® Body Yogurt Lotion and Yogurt Body Wash Apricot and Honey is one of the best new ideas I have tried. It smells great, looks like yogurt which completely took me aback. How could this be better than the same treatment I have been using for over forty years help at all? I was almost positive this would not change my mind, but I was wrong. It fit in perfectly with my nightly routine. We all know to keep our bodies hydrated by consuming water, watch the coffee intake because it will dehydrate your body. Increase your water by each ounce of coffee you drink. Get plenty of rest. Often our bodies don't get the sleep it needs especially with the change in time. Our internal clocks need reset as well. Set up a routine with the new time and consistently follow it. A nice warm shower or bath before bed with your AVEENO® Body Yogurt Lotion and Yogurt Body Wash Apricot and Honey will also help do the trick. Your skin is silky smooth with a calming honey and apricot smell that is simply heavenly. When using the body wash lather completely and rinse. You will be in awe at the smoothness already. Right before bed I apply my AVEENO® Body Yogurt Lotion Apricot and Honey, a little will go a long way. The soft suppleness it leaves behind is great.

Boho Cardigan

Women's Cardigan Long Sleeve Irregular Boho Jumper Open Front Striped Drape Top – I got the blue one I can’t get the link to work but bought it on Amazon. It says it runs small so I bought two sizes up.

The sleeves are still snug but not tight. I bought a few cami’s to match and it looks good. The material is very thin and not what any Boho Cardigan I have had feels like. This is a summer wardrobe item.

 If you are looking to wear this in Fall prepared to be cold. I am learning about shopping for clothing online. If you want clothing goes to a clothing site with long standing. I like Ellos and will find something there. My question to manufacturers is why are busty women left out, or why are your charts so far off?  This was very inexpensive so no real loss, however, I would not recommend for med-larger women . This is a great product for size 00-8 in the US.

#smalets knee compression brace review.

 I received this product for free or highly reduced I don't remember. I knew I needed relief and it was a day my knee was locked up. I got it on size xl. My pants are a  size L so figured it would fit. I do squats and leg training to help with lifting without using my back. So as you can see it is well defined.

But this size is too small and painful. I am sure if sizing were different it would work.  I measured, but it still does not fit properly. 3 stars, better sizing would have worked. Love the color, but no way could I lose  that much muscle or would I want too! Great product for a smaller person . I would order 1-2 sizes up esp if you are bulky.  Disclaimer _ I received this product at a discount, no review was required.

Curél® Hydra Therapy

Curél® Hydra Therapy

*This post is sponsored by  #CurelSkincare #sponsored   I received product for review free from @crowdtap

I dislike having dry skin and was offered the chance at trying the new Curel Hydra Therapy that is water activated. At first, I was not sure if this would be a perfect fit, but I did have dry skin and as the seasons change it tends to be a problem. 
My experience with this product was a positive one. However using it while in the shower left a slight residue and made the tub slick. I then decided to use it after I got out of the shower still wet and it worked wonderfully without any clean up. It made my skin soft and supple again and I did not have the dry crackle look on my skin. I had been using another product, but stopped so this product and the other could be compared. Hydra Therapy worked faster and moisturized my skin a little better.  I would definitely recommend this to others that are looking for a substantial hydration and moisturizer.

Kitchen Tool

 #iBambooMart cutting board and utensils are a beautiful set. I needed one because it has been 35 years since I have had one. Yes, you read that right, I had one from my mom that was passed to me many years ago, but never a new wooden one. The plastic ones do not suit me at all. They melt, burn, and never really feel clean after a few uses. My old one finally broke after 50 years of use, now that is a great product that lasts that long.  When I purchased this product I thought the same since the plastic ones don't last a wooden one could. This one comes with a thirty-day money back guarantee. 

I must admit it is lighter due to the type of wood, but we have come so far in history that this is an eco-friendly board. Easy to move and store. I thought at first looks it would be easy to cut this board while chopping, but it did not. It was smooth and effortless. The lip around the board stopped anything from rolling off such as the crazy carrot that loves to roll once you chop it tend to want to run away however the lip caught it and stopped it from leaving the cutting board. It is antimicrobial, antibacterial and does not retain foodborne pathogens naturally. Unlike wood and plastic no need to break out the crazy chemicals to clean. I still, however, can't bring myself to use soap and water, I use an antibacterial soap and scrub my board then put it into the drainer to dry, easily stored against the wall.  It fits perfectly with any kitchen decor. The utensils are easy to use and as durable as the board.

Great Frother

Blümwares Vienne Automatic Milk Frother and Heater | Stainless Electric Carafe | Frother, Warmer, and Cappuccino Maker

Blümwares Vienne Automatic Milk Frother and Heater | Stainless Electric Carafe | Frother, Warmer, and Cappuccino Maker Anyone that knows me will understand this purchase without explanation. I have a deep love for coffee and anything related. I froth my milk for every cup I drink either hot or cold depending on my mood. No longer will I have to heat my milk in the microwave and use a handheld little frother , those tend to rust over a years time. #Belmint
Blumwares Vienne Frother is far superior to any I have used including the steam frother on my espresso machine. This product is a total of five pieces, lid, the machine with handle, the base with corded plug and two heads one to whip cold milk, and a different head to frothe hot milk. When you are using one or the other the second head can easily snap into the lid of the machine securely.
There are two measuring notches inside the machine. I use skim milk because it works so much better for me and always has with any machine. If you want a cold whip hit the bottom button with a little snowflake emblem, hot the top button with a heat symbol. Simply push the button it will light up when it is finished the light will being blinking the stop then you are ready to use the milk.
The canister removes from the base to pour easily, wash out with soap and water then wipe clean. Easily stores on counter top. I love the design as it fits with my kitchen appliances and wonderful addition since I use it daily.
