Phoneography Starter Kit




I've been into photography for as long as I can remember and was really excited to start taking pictures with my iPhone to make things a bit easier to save and share. Unfortunately I've never had a super top of the line phone (read I still have an iPhone 4!) that produced amazing photos.

So you can only image how glad I was to get Photojojo's Phoneography Starter Kit to try out. It really did help push my phonography game to the next level! Not only is the wide/macro lens a super cool feature to have pretty much built together but I'm able to attach a magnet to the end of my iPhone so that my photos come out perfect without having to spend time making sure their lenses and my phone camera match up perfectly!

In addition to the lenses the kit includes a cool filter that looks like an old school slide which lets you take pictures with cool filters from the start by just moving the filter around the lens. It's pretty cool and I like that it forces me to commit to one fun filter and take a chance!

Everything needed comes in a really cute pouch where I can store everything that came in the kit along with my phone and it also came with this super cool dinosaur that let me test my lenses out as soon as I got them!

I'm seriously in love with this kit and am constantly on Photojojo's site looking for the next great product to buy for my iPhone and iPad. Their products are really innovative, fun and super cute to carry around!

Michael Todd's Soniclear




Michael Todd's Soniclear is amazing. I was given the chance to start using it a few weeks ago and I'm officially addicted.

I heard about these fancy electronic face scrubbers over the year but never thought I needed one. My hands and fingers do a good enough job at cleansing my face and I never thought the money was worth it. I was also always afraid that I'd have to constantly replace the brushes because they'd get dirty due to my dark makeup and my love of bronzer and blushes. Luckily the Soniclear comes with a built in antimicrobial protection to keep stains and odor causing bacteria away which is a killer for clean and healthy skin.

The last skin care tool that I purchased was the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System back in April of 2014 and while I really like it, I was ready to graduate into something more. Something that I could use daily, gave me a deeper clean and of course was fun to use. How is the Soniclear not perfect in that situation?


The Soniclear comes with the actual device, both a face and body brush, a charging stand and the power cord. I love that it isn't battery operated because I just have to put it on the stand to charge when I'm done and it'll always be ready for the next use. Another thing that I really like is that the box comes with a larger brush to use on my body because I like to use coffee scrubs and my St. Ives scrubs with salicylic acid to keep my super smooth and perfect.

Like I mentioned before, I haven't had the chance to use other popular electronic facial scrubbers but at this rate I don't think I have to. I'm currently away for work and the Soniclear is the first and last thing I use. It's also waterproof, which is amazing, because I like to take care of my entire morning cleansing routine in the shower to maximize time and give me a few extra hours of sleep!

Personalized Letter from Santa and Giveaway




Last week I posted my review and ran a giveaway for a Personalized Postcard from Santa and now that Thanksgiving is over I decided to make this one a double and am adding a Deluxe Package from santawillwrite.com.

I again ordered this package for my little cousin who thanks to the postcard is back to believing in santa. The great thing about this package isn't just the shiny red envelope that it comes in but that it also contains a bunch of goodies! Kids love everything that surrounds Christmas, especially having things seem a bit magical because it kind of is to them so it's perfect that there's a bit of magic dust in every envelope.

The package also contains fun things like stickers, game boards, and a note from Rudolph. Not bad, right?

Just like the postcard I will be giving away one of these packages so that someone can get surprised right before they open their gifts.

PS: if you don't get a chance to enter my giveaway you can still get a discount by using the promo code SANTADD for the letters and pcSANTADD for the postcards!

And don't worry, I'll be running tons of giveaways for beauty products and fun things for adults soon!

Kiss Me Organics Macha Tea




I've become a huge tea drinker recently and love discovering new types and their beneficial properties. Green tea has been on my short list for a few years because it's a main ingredient in my detox tea. But even then I only ever used tea bags and never tried making it with tea leaves or powder so I was eager to give Kiss Me Organics' Ceremonial Macha Powder that I got from Amazon.com a try.

Just like most high grade green teas, the Macha powder is a major antioxidant, helps with energy, is a mild mood enhancer and stress reliever.

I'm really into the fact that it's in powdered form because now instead of having to brew and cool down green tea for smoothies I can just put the powder in easily. I also really like it's vibrant green hue. It helps keep my green juices from turning brown due to the carrots and beets that I add in.

Ageless Derma Super Green Moisturizing Serum



I've been looking for a new moisturizer ever since Philosophy changed the way Hope in a Jar smells. Before it was beyond heavenly and now it's just bland. Ageless Derma's Moisturizing Serum is a great alternative to it.

To start, it's a moisturizer as a serum which gives me the feeling of something seeping deeper into my semi dry skin. When I've been using this as a part of my skin care regiment I've noticed my skin is a bit softer, my makeup applies so much easier and even without tinted moisturizer, my skin seems to glow.

This product is made out of organic products which is nice and has the ability to repair slight damage to the skin due to toxins which is a plus. Anything to keep the fine lines at bay works for me and if a product gives comes with some anti-aging perks then it's a total win!

I like to mix this serum with my tinted moisturizer so that they don't have to compete with each other and I get that extra dose to keep that dry looking skin at bay.

MAGNAblade Razor


So I'm not a huge shaver. I wax every 4-6 weeks and generally keep razors away because I hate how they make my skin feel. Especially my calves. EEK! But in an effort to start saving some money I realized that spending $150 constantly just to be super smooth could be avoided. I've been using the MAGNAblade for a few months now and have to say that I really like it.

For starters, the razor is really thick and sturdy. I like that it's heavy and is made really well. Basically, the MAGNAblade is a dock for your razor that is said to help keep the razor sharp longer than it would without it. So far the original razor that came with the package is still hanging on but I don't remember how long they're supposed to last because I haven't used one in ages.

I will say that my legs are super duper smooth while using this and I'm glad I'm not having any issues. Not sure if this will make me forgo waxing 100% but it'll be nice to have something that will last so that when I do decide to use it I won't have to deal with something old and rusty.
