Reviver Clothing Wipes help freshen clothing instantly

 
Reviver Clothing Swipes are great for moms on the go! They are a revolutionary line of dry odor-eliminating wipes to freshen clothes and hair on the go.  Each non-toxic reusable swipe comes in a re-sealable pack that is small enough to fit in a purse, wallet, pocket or gym bag for instant freshness anytime, anywhere. 
 
Now, I was ready to try out the Reviver! I am a smoker and have pets. I hate going to lunch and smelling like smoke and perfume does not cover it up! So, I decided to smoke me a cigarette and then use the Reviver right before lunch. Well, surprise it actually works! I did not have on perfume but my lunch date thought I had not smoked a cigarette all day!
 
These are perfect for anyone and anytime! 
 
Affordable, dry and effective, each swipe delivers over 10 treatments, keeping clothes smelling good between washings.  www.reviver.com

Ralph Lauren has the Perfect Christmas Gift!

 
For me, I love perfume! It is something I can enjoy all year long and I have about 20 bottles. Each scent is perfect for any occasion. Now, Ralph Lauren has 2 great scents that will make anyone on your list happy:
 
 
Ralph Lauren perfume has always been one of my favorite. They have a incredible scent that smells great on anyone. Midnight Romance is one of those perfumes.
 
"The classic love story of Romance takes a daring, sensual turn with this mysterious and seductive new facet of the fragrance. The passionate embrace of pink peony and rich black vanilla captivates the senses and speaks of a forbidden love and the sensual side of femininity."
 
If there every was a fragrance that screamed seduction, this is the one!

 
For the men, women will go crazy over the Polo Red cologne. The cologne has a woody, spicy fragrance that combines notes of red grapefruit, red saffron and red wood to ignite the thrill seeker in every man. I know I enjoy smelling this on my husband and you will too!
 
They even have this great option that for a few dollars more, you can have the bottle personalized!
 
You can purchase Ralph Lauren Fragrances at Ralph Lauren online and other retailers like Macy's and Belk.

Amara Organics Hyaluronic Acid Serum


 
I was really excited when I had the opportunity to try out the Amara Organics Hyaluronic Acid Serum.  I am only in my 30's but I still have issues with wrinkles around my eyes.  There's no need to use expensive fillers and injections when you can get amazing results with this topical formula.
 
The Hyaluronic Acid Serum provides a safe and effective alternative for filling and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Within moments of using this powerful Hyaluronic Acid Serum, you can expect your skin to feel silky, soft, and smooth. Combined with Vitamins C & E, this anti-aging formula has long-lasting effects that will make your skin glow.
 
I actually used the serum before jetting out on my morning errands. I first applied my toner then just applied a thin layer of the serum over it. My skin felt softer and my eyes seemed to look more alert. I am very anxious to see if this product will help get rid of those pesky lines around my eyes.
 
 You can purchase this serum from:

Coosh Extended Range Bluetooth 4.0 Headphones, with Carrying Case


 
The Coosh CBT00H1 Bluetooth headphones are high clarity, powerful bass audio and super comfort rolled into a clean package!


One thing I love is the included case for storage which is always handy. Also, the headphones will last around 15 hours on a single charge. The controls for volume, power, and playing music are built into the headphone unit for easy access.
 
I used this headphones today while on a conference call. They did great! The padding helped to block out background noise while allowing the client to hear me perfectly. I loved that I was able to walk around the house without restrictions as well.

Coosh CBT791B Portable Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Extended Range Speaker with Built in Speakerphone


 
Are you looking for a Bluetooth speaker that is perfect for the man? Well he will love the Coosh CBT791B!

 
Right out of the box, this Bluetooth speaker screams man! It has a treading around it like a tire with orange outline which I love. Plus the buttons are touch activated.

 
The speaker has a range of about 30 feet when connected via Bluetooth. Also, it has a passive subwoofer so there is no distortion when playing bass. Over all, I really like this speaker and its very appealing design.

Chinese Lanterns make a great party decoration


 
 Crisp white paper lanterns adds ambiance and style to your party. Chinese paper lanterns with lights hanging give a soft-gentle light that will not interfere with photography. But they are also great for other projects.

 
Did you know the lanterns can be used as table top decorations by adding flowers or even stacking to make a snowman! That is what we will be doing this weekend, making our snowman for decoration and adding lights for a nice glow. Putting the lanterns together was easy! Just insert the metal brace and their you go!

ClipSee Speaker Phone


ClipSee, the oh-so-simple iPhone speakerphone that can lessen the stress (and dangers) of making calls while behind the wheel.
 
This little gadget accomplishes what more complicated (and more expensive) accessories fail to do:  provide easy, safe, and powerful call clarity while driving. 

 
ClipSee is wireless and battery-free, and at $19.99 it makes a great stocking-stuffer for every driver in your family –it’s also the perfect gift for the non-techie people in your life - as it requires zero technical skills to use. Just attach the ClipSee directly to your seatbelt strap and it provides hands-free calling and up to 3X the amplification of your voice, and your caller’s voice.  No need for battery chargers, ear buds, Bluetooth synching issues in your rental car, or straining to be heard.
 
When you place your iPhone into the holster, ClipSee provides quick, eyes-free speakerphone activation with Siri®, as well as answering + ending of calls using a simple finger guide.  The team behind ClipSee also designed it to mitigate noisy background sounds like wind and traffic, or your kid’s music in the backseat!
Don’t be fooled by its simplicity - ClipSee is a powerful little device that really works – it’s the simplest, least expensive, and legal way to text and talk hands-free in your car.
 
The only downfall I see is that my phone can not be in the case. I like to keep my phone in the Otterbox because of protection. Otherwise, this unit is great and really works for my mother especially being she drives long hours.

The Inkblot Pack:
The fascination of inkblots has become a staple of pop culture as well. The iconic imagery can be found in everything from photography to advertising (such as the artwork for the hit series Dexter) and writing, such as the character in the graphic novel Watchmen. Art legend Andy Warhol found inspiration in the inkblots to create his 1984 paint series. As part of our collective culture, inkblots have created a tool that has inspired many to continue the journey of self knowledge.
 
 Included in The Inkblot Pack are: a 128 page journal replete with quotes on perception, reality and emotion from some of the greatest theorists, writers, and thinkers of our time; 10 inkblots to inspire and provoke response; and a 16-page excerpt from Psychodiagnostik, the book in which the inkblots were first introduced and published. Allow yourself to be inspired by the words of some of our greatest minds as you project your own meaning onto what you see in the provided inkblots, and record it in your journal.
