Selfie Stick -Professional 2-in-1 Bluetooth Review

I mentioned in my previous posts regarding my passion in photography. I love taking pictures and my subjects would always be my children if not nature. I rarely take pictures of myself for so many reasons. I love multiple pictures of myself that way I can choose the nicest one to share and that seems to be a problem for my “photographer” who happens to be my husband. LOL! He has problems taking multiple pictures of me because he can’t take my criticism. I think he doesn’t know how to take pictures because the subject would aways be too far or the other way around. It’s either he has no patience in holding cameras (phone or DSLR) or he finds it so boring when clicking multiple pictures. He is just not into it. Thus, I am so glad that monopod or selfie stick was invented.

Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 9.12.54 AM About a month ago I was approved to review a Selfie Stick – Professional 2-in-1 Bluetooth product. I was thrilled because I can take pictures of myself now without having to ask any favor from anyone including my husband. I bought a monopod before but it doesn’t have a lot of features unlike this new one I received for a product review. What’s great about this selfie stick is that I don’t have to download a timer app because of the built in Bluetooth shutter button right on the handle of the stick. It makes taking a selfie/groupie a lot easier. It also comes with 3 mounts that can be used for digital cameras and phones in different sizes. All I had to do is to turn the Bluetooth on from my phone and from the stick; once the device is recognized I’m set in taking pictures.

For some reason I had trouble connecting it with my iPhone 6 plus and I couldn’t figure it out up to this moment. However, I had no trouble using my husband’s Samsung galaxy phone, I can connect the bluetooth device easily. The stick handle has a good grip and it can be extended up to 39 inches away from me. I like this better than the other stick I got. Shipping was fast too.

This photo was taken at the Mountain Hawk Park, in front is the Otay Lake in Chula Vista San Diego.

I would suggest though that they should pack it in a personalized box (not just a plain brown box) to make it look more appealing and a “must have” manual booklet for the sake of those who are not technology savvy individuals like me. I honestly had hard time figuring out on how to install the Bluetooth device from my phone to the stick like I mentioned above. I literally had to search it on YouTube for instructions. But other than that I think this is the coolest selfie stick ever!

Mia Mariu Love Your Skin Pack Review

I’ve always loved Mia Mariu products. I love their lipstick and lip-gloss and gave some to my immediate family for gifts and they love it as well. I am grateful to have an opportunity to be working with them again for product reviews. This time they sent me a pack of skin care products to try. I trust their products and I am so excited to try it since I’ve been having issues with my facial skin lately. I haven’t taken care of my skin and it looks dull and acne has started popping up. Before the Mia Mariu skin care came to my mail box, I started using all kinds of products for my skin and acne but most of them didn’t seem to work. I was getting frustrated thinking that I’m just wasting my money. But after using the Mia Mariu cleanser and hydrating moisturizer for a nearly a week now, I noticed some change, a “good change” so to speak. My skin looks youthful, vibrant and most especially very soft and smooth. It cleanses my impurities to a brighter skin. I feel amazing and looking at the mirror makes me feel beautiful. It doesn’t feel like sand paper whenever I rub on my skin anymore. I just love the results and knowing that this product works for a sensitive skin like mine makes it even more awesome.

Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 9.32.04 AM The Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser has ingredients that cannot be found in other products, it has anti-inflammatory formula with 8 natural botanicals. Aloe, marigold, sea kelp, sea lettuce and not only that, it also has essential oils like orange peel, lemon, lime and grapefruit, which helps your skin feel soft and smooth. The Hydrating Anti-Aging Moisturizer on the other hand comes with SPF 30+, which helps to protect your skin from the damaging sunlight. The texture is soft and it doesn’t feel greasy on my skin. I love it’s smell too, mild with luxurious scents. Just a little dab on your finger can go a long way, which is great because you wont run out of it quickly. I used it AM/PM for greater results. All in all, I love this product and definitely recommend it to every woman out there who wants to have healthy, vigorous beautiful skin and most especially wrinkle-free looking skin.

They actually have a great addition to their products and those are the essential oils that I would hopefully try. I love nature and I love home remedies when it comes to wellness and body nourishment.

Abacus24-7 iPhone 6 Plus Flip Case with a Mirror Review

I previously posted about the new iPhone 6 cases I have and unfortunately, my daughter accidentally broke the built-in stand while trying to put it back in place. She struggled to the point of breaking it. I felt sad because it was new and I love it.

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 9.26.52 AM

How timely it was when I got approved for a new iPhone case, for review. I’ve been meaning to buy one of the Abacus24-7 iPhone 6 Plus cases collection that I found online but I haven’t got the chance of doing it. I seen many of my customers at work has this kind of case and I think it looks really cute. What I love about this product is that it comes with a makeup mirror, which not many phone cases has.

Whatever you see in the picture is pretty much what you can expect in person. It looks neat and the material is synthetic with a Snap-On back cover. I don’t have problems with port impediment. It doesn’t obstruct my camera or the sensor of my phone. It’s actually available in several colors like Light Blue, Light Pink, Purple, Pink and Mint. You can buy it on Amazon, just look for Abacus24-7 iPhone 6 Plus case and you’ll see it right there.

My daughter loves modeling!

Modeling NY&C sunglasses

Modeling NY&C sunglasses

One thing I know for sure about my little girl is that she loves fashion. She loves catwalk and I have no idea where she learned it. I asked her then her reply would be “from school” is that what teachers taught her all along? LOL! Just kidding. Anyway, I find it so cute when she does things like wearing heels, wearing sunglasses and messing with the makeup samples at the department store. It’s amusing that I have to snap photos of her and share it to my family and friends on Facebook. She looks cute and funny too because she makes faces at the same time while walking towards us. I believe those sandals she wore were sizes 5 and it almost fits her. The sunglass was not children’s sizes too. In other words these were grownup stuffs that she loves to play and pretend.

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 9.33.04 AM

However, I know she shouldn’t act like that especially at her age and I constantly remind her to be conscious at being modest in dressing and act respectfully. Dressing appropriately is what’s important aside from behaving well. I don’t want her to become somebody who is not respected just because the way she dresses up or by her appearance. Respectful, kind and loving is what I’m instilling in my children.

Smart Weigh Bathroom Memory Scale – Silver Review

Smart, smarter, smartest! Well, speaking of “smart” I have to let you guys know that I recently received the smartest silver bathroom scale ever. I super love it. It features the coolest functions that not many bathroom scales offer in the market these days. Unlike my old bathroom scale this Smart Weigh SMS500 Digital Bathroom Scale gave precise readings immediately and believe it or not its memory can store up to 8 users, which is amazing. Right? I have not heard of any bathroom scale that does this until right at this moment.

Multi-color motivational backlights

Multi-color motivational backlights

Once my weight is recorded and my own profile is created information will appear the next time I weigh myself. It automatically recognizes each user and updates its information and that’s when the screen backlights changes from blue to green/red letting user know whether his/her current weight decreases or increases their previous weight reading. These colors can be an incentive to users like me especially when I have a goal of losing weight, which is a no brainer because we pretty much all wants to shed those extra baggage that we have been carrying around for years. Am I right? We want to see the green backlight lit up each time we step on this scale! This bathroom scale definitely offers an easy way of tracking our weight results from our previous weighed-in just by looking at the screen color displays.

Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 11.56.52 AM

My 5 year old daughter weighs 49.2 lbs now!!!

Weight units can be adjusted too, if I want the screen displays my weight in lbs. or in kg. All I have to do is press the UNIT key located on the bottom of the scale. By the way, the capacity of this scale is 440lbs / 200kg / 31st: 6 lbs. One thing for sure is that this scale is very “techy” and innovative and very durable too. The box comes with 4 x AAA batteries and it has instructions too. It is also available in Black. I should say everyone must have it!!! Thank you so much Smart Weigh Scale for the opportunity of having one of your excellent product. Click HERE for purchase.

Our Grand Canyon, Arizona tour

Entering Arizona

Entering Arizona

We drove 4 hours from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon but it was kind of disappointing because we didn’t see much of the park’s beauty. We supposedly went there to see the astonishing rock formations but instead we were welcomed with a snowy stormy weather. We would have more time exploring Las Vegas and not wasted our time driving up there had we listened to the weather forecast and hid from the advice given at the time.

Happy face/loving the snow

Happy face/loving the snow

My children enjoyed the snow in spite of everything, which made the trip a little bit of excitement. We haven’t gone to a snow adventure for quite awhile now that’s why the kids had a lot of fun when they saw the snow. It wasn’t just a regular snowfall but it was hard because of the wind and bitterly cold for at least 5 minutes when we got there. I should’ve taken pictures of it but it was the last thing in my mind, all I thought was sought shelter for our safety. We will definitely go back and make sure the sky is clear and of course check the weather forecast ahead of time before deciding to book for our tour. My daughter in the picture was in the museum and if not that foggy we would’ve been seeing the rocky mountain right there. Better luck next time, should I say!

MeasuPro BPM-80A Blood Pressure Monitor Review

I’ve been meaning to purchase a blood pressure monitor because the one’s I have is already acting up and it wont give me the correct blood pressure readings. I think every household should own one for convenience of monitoring our health on a regular basis and because it eases our mind knowing that our blood pressure is normal. I constantly worry about my health, which is not good because it can just lead into something unpleasant “health-wise”; I often check my blood pressure with my husband’s help.

MeasuPro Digital Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor

MeasuPro Digital Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor

Just before I thought of going to the pharmacy to get a blood pressure monitor, I happened to checked at the amazon website and saw lots of choices but this MeasuPro BPM-80A Blood Pressure Monitor looks cool among all of them and digital too. I read some reviews of it and it sounds pretty convincing. How timely it is when I found out that they were looking for reviewers to try their product. I undoubtedly applied and fortunately I got approved. They sent the item in less than a week and I am definitely happy with it. First, it arrived sooner than I thought and second, this product is really awesome. I don’t have to ask help from my husband to check on my blood pressure and it’s really easy-to-use. It’s very innovative because its features are comprehensive.  It’s automatic and what I love about it the most is that it comes with a graphical hypertension level bar display, which tells me when my blood pressure is normal, Pre-hypertension, Hypertension Stage 1, Hypertension Stage 2, or in Hypertensive crisis. All I have to do is set it up and press the button; it also gives a very accurate measurement. I really love it so much and I think it will be a great addition to my health tools. By the way, the batteries (4 AAA) are already included in the box and it came really handy. Thank you so much for this cool product!

You can buy it on Amazon, arm cuff sizes are available from medium to large.

iPhone 6 plus & Backpack (uuberstore) review

Hi friends how are you today? I know it’s been awhile I haven’t had any product reviews and I’m certain that you are looking forward to seeing new reviews in this blog. Well good news, recently I have contacted by an advertiser (uuberstore.com) from asking me to review their products, I checked what they had to offer and I was ecstatic because it was the product that I have been looking for. I have an iPhone 6 plus and I wanted to try their phone cases. I also love their premium backpack, it looks so neat and I wanted to have one of their collections. I requested an iPhone case and a backpack, which they gladly offered to me for review. First and foremost I would like to thank Mr. Jimmy for being so kind, generous and very accommodating in accepting my request. He rocks! I’m pretty sure that that’s one of the reasons why their business is successful because they handle their clients well and assist their need to our satisfaction.

Made with ballistic nylon, tons of thoughtful storage.

He sent the items I’ve requested in a week after the approval and as soon as I opened the box and saw their products I knew that the quality is way excellent. The premium backpack is so sturdy, durable and it has a lot of compartments and some are expandable too where I can put all my stuff. This is really perfect for any students. My 3rd grader loved it too and he wanted to use it for school. I told him he could use it when he will be in 4th grade, which will be this school year. He can’t wait! Well, not only students can use it but hikers, campers or for any other regular activities too. I personally am a backpack person. I am more comfortable with backpacks and I can surely use it for my everyday activity. I can store my tablet or laptop in it and other accessories too. The fabric is nice and it’s light, which is very cool. You would think that this backpack looks bulky and heavy but it’s not. It has cushion or padding that gives support, protection and fatigue reduction while carrying your backpack. I love it and I highly recommend everyone particularly students to get one of this.

It has built-in kickstand, which I love the most.

Their iPhone 6 plus case is really cool too. I love how smooth and chic their case is. It’s super slim and has an excellent grip in hand part to keep your hand from slipping while holding your phone. My friends saw it and they all love it. They wanted to get one and I told them to go to uuberstore.com they can choose colors of their choice. What’s great about it is that it is inexpensive. For $29 that’s a steal of a deal. The quality is perfection for me. YOU should buy one too!

Our Las Vegas vacation

DSC_0003_5333

It was another dream come true for my husband and me to be able to tour Las Vegas. We drove from San Diego to Las Vegas and it took us almost 5 hours to get there. It was fun though our body aches after a long hours of sitting. We left early morning making sure that we get there before noon and it was successful. There were few accidents along the way, which causes a little bit of traffic but other than that our trip was ok. We went a lot of places; we pretty much explored the city. We rode monorail and the tallest Ferris wheel around world; High Roller is what they call it.

High Roller

High Roller

Hitting the top would be 550 feet from the ground and it was a bit scary especially if you are suffering from acrophobia. It was early morning when we took the Ferris wheel so we can see how the entire city in daytime. We took lots of pictures of course. We also went to the stratosphere which has 113th floor levels and it was amazing and did it at night time to see the entire city lit up with all kinds of lights. We also dine at the finest dining restaurants, which were quite an experience because we never spend so much money for meals but once in awhile are ok. Oh boy! It will take pages if I will narrate every details of our vacation hehehehe.

Stratosphere Las Vegas

But anyway, I will share some photos of our tour and hope you enjoyed it. I will share more of our experience in the next blog post I will be writing for. Thank you for stopping by and reading articles in this blog, I appreciate all your presence here.

6 Tips on How to Get Out of a Fashion Rut

Fashion and style are the expression of a person’s personality, interests and ambitions. Having a great style means that a person is confident and ready for the next obstacle that may come her way. Great style, however, takes effort and inspiration. Everyone who wants to look their best every day will put some time into creating the perfect outfits. Because it takes effort and inspiration, many people can find themselves slipping into a fashion rut from time to time. They feel like they are wearing the same tired looks every day and do not feel as confident in the outfits that they put together. This is an unfortunate occurrence that no one should have to deal with for long. Everyone should feel comfortable and confident in every outfit that they put on. Here are six tips on how to get out of a fashion rut.

Watch a modern TV show for inspiration

TV shows and movies can be the perfect way to find new outfit ideas and stylish new ways to spice up a wardrobe. Finding a modern TV show to watch with Texas TV service from Direct TV can be a great way to find out what new styles are popular today and how everyday people can pull them off.

Change one piece of the normal outfits

Many people think that when they are in a style rut, they need to throw away their entire current wardrobe and start from scratch. Instead of wasting all their money on a new wardrobe, people can instead try to switch out one piece in all of their normal go-to outfits to make it look completely different. For example, women can wear heels with a traditional work outfit instead of flats.

Try a daring new color

This time of year is the perfect time for people to try a great new color that they may have been afraid to wear before. For example, instead of wearing an all black outfit, people can try wearing all white instead. These daring looks are sure to impress everyone and add new life to a dull wardrobe.

Only buy what you really love

Many people will try to buy some really trendy items when they are in a fashion rut, but will end up feeling unlike themselves when wearing those items. Everyone should think about what they are buying when looking into new trends. No matter if it is trendy or not, no one should buy something that they do not truly love.

Comb through Pinterest

Pinterest can be a great way to find new inspiration. However, many people make a Pinterest board full of outfits that they love but do not every look at those pins seriously. Going through Pinterest and actually choosing a few outfits to replicate can help anyone make a new wardrobe quickly.

Mix up typical outfits

There are a lot of ways that people can mix their normal outfits to make them look new again. Taking two outfits and switching a few of the pieces is the easiest way to break the fashion rut and make something new and beautiful.
