Elegant Shaker

 Cocktail Shaker Set -Premium Bartender Kit in a Luxury Bag: Martini Bar Shaker,Jigger,2 Liquor Pourers &; ebook : 100 Cocktail Drinks Recipes - Lifetime Guarantee on all the Barware Tools by SHIKSHOOK

#SHIKSHOOK, I was surprised when I received this product. It has been many years since I had fixed any mixed drink at all. So to begin with my review is from a novice with this type of Cocktail Shaker Set. Let me explain how elegant this Shaker is, yet very functional. It also comes with an ebook offer free for people like myself that has no clue what they are doing.  Once I understood how to use it I was able to make my own recipe.

There are two pourers, double sided 1 and 1/2 oz jigger measure, the shaker, strainer and cap in a very nice black velveteen bag and ebook. A great addition if you are already an avid bar user or a novice starting a bar for friends or an evening at home. My bar is small and now looks complete and not just a few bottles and glasses sitting around. I have been experimenting with the recipes for the last week being engrossed in the ebook and the many different drinks you can make and not all have to contain alcohol.  I enjoy the virgin mixes as well.

At first, I was going to give this as a gift, but while using it I became attached. It has a lifetime guarantee. I will have to purchase another to give as a gift. Easy to clean and dishwasher safe. If you drop it there will be no dings or dents, very sturdy. I had fun, enjoyed the ebook and definitely enjoy the look of my bar.

Pure Hair Therapy

L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare 

Extraordinary Oil

This trio of products are the most extensive, clean, lightweight product for my hair I have ever used. 
 I was skeptical when I first poured the shampoo into my hand. I had to do a double-take to make sure I picked up the right bottle. I then stood there staring at it wondering if this was really going to work. It felt like oil, it looked like oil and my mind went back and forth. I then just went for it. I was surprised at the luxurious lather since my hair is long it usually takes a good amount of shampoo but this appeared to cover all my hair without a problem. I worked it into my scalp and to the ends of my hair that seriously needed some attention. The rinsing process was not hard it rinsed out without a problem or residue. This clearly seemed impossible but it was a nice wash, clean fragrance that was not overpowering. My hair felt clean and not oily. Don't let the first feel fool you it really does nourish your hair.

This full-size free bottle will last quite a while and the price is well worth it. I know there is a vast amount of new products out this summer, but this is one of two that I found to have made a difference. If your hair is drying from the pool, or sun exposure I would highly suggest giving this a try you will be amazed at the results.

The texture is the same as most conditioners although not greasy feeling. It massages into the hair well and does not leave a heavy residue. My hair felt smooth and silky with plenty of bounce. It took away the flyaway hair that irritates me during the summer months. My hair usually feels weighed down and I end up in a pony tail that was not the case with this product. There are very few hair products that I enjoy using and this is one of two conditioners that leave my hair nice.
An extra plus for me on a personal note is the consistency of the L'Oreal Paris products is whichever line you are using the entire set has the same smell without variation into something else. They are all a very clean scent that does not overpower any fragrance you wear. A little of the product goes a long way, rinses out without any problem no after wash greasy feeling. I allow my hair to air dry and my daughter used a hair dryer and there is no difference between the two except I still think my hair is healthier. I most definitely recommend this trio of products for a nice head of healthy hair.

Sharing with others is what is it all about with the #crowdtaplovers 

 This is my honest unbiased opinion after using this product for a week.

I received product for free from +Crowdtap  and #FolgersFans #sponsored

I have been waking up to Folgers coffee for as long as I can remember. Not to mention there is not a blend I have not tried and enjoyed except maybe the half caf sorry guys that is just not my cup of coffee. Then they came out with Simply Smooth, awesome on your tummy.

Now COFFEEHOUSE blends, and I am not ashamed to say I will be replacing two well-named brands with this blend. I can froth up some skim milk, add my COFFEEHOUSE blend and pour a couple tablespoons into a huge mug of delicious coffee. 

Share a cup with your favorite person!  Check out the Folgers Apps, and go to the full site to see all the great things they have to offer.

Time Keeper

Why did I want this watch? It looked beautiful and was reasonably priced, and the men in my family do not have watches because they are constantly scratching the faces until you can't tell the time. I am sure there are many out there that know they have told someone takes that watch off before you work on the car, or do yard work and have a special watch they wear so they still have a nice watch for work.

It has a genuine leather band, I have a seven-inch wrist and it fits on the third notch for me. I like the band, but not thrilled with the size. The men I needed this watch for would not be able to wear it; they are over six foot tall and have big hands and wrists. I needed to replace the band which is really easy to do or take it to the store and they will replace it for you if you are not sure how to do it.

It is scratch resistant and water resistant, with a roman numeral face, open window with the date at the three o'clock position.The numbers and hand are all a rose gold and it looks like an expensive watch. I kept it for a few days to see how much time it looses however it has stayed true to time without any loss. I would recommend this watch for anyone that needs a casual watch for work it would be an excellent investment.

  Organized Cosmetics

click to buy


Why did I want this product, first I have a major dysfunction for organization and I have bought several of these type Travel bags that can be zipped and my things are out of the way and not on display for everyone. I know we all have had that one person that visits and goes through your cabinets or uses the restroom while gazing at your things. To me, that is very annoying and intrusive. These bags keep different things for me, this particular one is holding my make-up and anything to do with my face.

I took pictures but took out the products because I am not trying to sell those products nor do I want anyone to know what I have or use. Yes, it does sound terrible but that is what I do. The left side holds all my brushes and does not ruin the brush heads, right side holds my spin brush and facial wash full size and there is a pocket on the outside for any single wipes you may need to use. Both sides zip completely with sturdy zippers, one gave me a slight problem although that is a normal occurrence on many new zippers a little soap will cure that quickly. The center holds my full-size creams, micellar water, and toners. The bigger pocket in front holds my cosmetic bag itself holding all of my products. There are also two large zippered net pockets to hold your sponges, both wedges, and cotton makeup sponges. The top one is holding my facial morning spritzer and several chapsticks.

The very top has a hook that as you can see hangs nicely on a hook on the back of the restroom door leaving everything open and exposed easily in reach without searching through several bags. Once completely zipped there is a top sturdy handle that will allow you to slide it on a shelf or in a drawer without a problem. There is no need for labeling since the side of the bag has a picture of what is in the bag.

Conclusion- What makes this bag different than others? I like that I can use full-size products, you can use it daily, zips and stores away quickly and it is waterproof.

Disclaimer- I received this product for free and was asked to test and review this product with an honest unbiased opinion, these opinions are 100% my own and reflect how I use this product. I am in no way affiliated with the company other than using this product. I am very familiar with travel bags and overall I find this one to be specific for me to cosmetics although I am sure you can find a use if you do not own cosmetics.
