You Should Get a Boar Bristle Brush

Do you use a Boar Bristle Brush? I have for a while now but if you haven't heard of this kind of brush, it's basically a brush made of 100% natural boar bristles and according to a variety of resources (such as this one http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-a-boar-bristle-brush.htm) it's supposed to help distribute the hair's natural oils and also help improve shine while conditioning the hair and adding body.



I was first introduced to Boar Bristle Brush because my mom had one and I remember as a teen not really liking the brush because it could never get tangles out of my hair. But these days my perspective has completely changed and I really appreciate what Boar Bristle Brushes can do for me.

But recently I had the chance to try out a Pocket Sized Boar Bristle Brush made by Angelo David Salon and I can't wait to tell you about it! When I got it, I noticed how small of a brush it was, but that's okay because it makes it that much easier to keep with me during the d…

CoffeeBeanery.com - Try Out Some New Coffee This Holiday Season!

Are you looking for some new coffee to purchase for the holidays? I think I may have found just the right coffee company for you.

Coffee Beanery started out in 1976 way before coffee houses were a trend. They have over 100 locations across the United States, 20 locations internationally and continues to commit themselves to professionalism and quality. Read more about their company by visiting this link. 

I had the chance to try out two blends - Jamaican Blue Mountain and Hawaiian Kona. I thought both of these tasted very good. The Hawaiian Kona blend coffee is light roasted, and I was really surprised to see how much I liked it. It may have a gentle flavor but it was tasty and sweet. I think this would make a perfect evening coffee and it was one of the tastiest light roasts I've ever had. And that is saying a lot for me because I usually don't like them at all! You can purchase a bag for yourself by following this link.

The other kind I tried was called Jamaican Blue Mounta…

The Good Bean - Snacking at It's Best [Review + Giveaway]

I had the chance to review a variety of products from a company called The Good Bean.

I tried Jalapeno Cheddar Chips, Sweet Chili Chips, Sea Salt Chips as well as a variety of chickpeas including Smoky Chili & Lime, Thai Coconut Lemongrass, Sea Salt, and Sweet Cinnamon.






I will admit that I do love having something to snack during the day. I know chips probably aren't the BEST option to choose from when snacking, but sometimes, you know, you just got to have it. What I like about these chips and it's something I really could see happening with the Good Bean chips, is that they would be great for nachos. Because they are sort of strong chips, not the kind to wilt under the pressure of hot cheese. I haven't tried yet actually but based on the crunching and munching action that DID happen with these chips I can tell you they make great dipping chips.

Of all the chip flavors I tried, the Jalapeno Cheddar and the Sweet Chili Chips were my absolute favorite. They were SO fl…

Put Your Best Face Forward with Maple Hill Naturals Soap [Review + Giveaway]

I think I've said more than once that my skin is very sensitive. I don't tend to trust products for my skin that promise too much or are overly complicated, so I was so excited to try products by Maple Hill Naturals.

Soy Candle - Made by Aurorae [Review and Giveaway]

My mom and I both love candles and I could never think of anything negative to say about candles - they add a pleasant aroma and a relaxing atmosphere to any room. As the colder seasons roll around, I appreciate candles more and more in my home.

I had the chance to review the Eucalyptus - Healing soy candle made by Aurorae Yoga Company. And I can't wait to tell you guys about it!

Each of their soy candles are 100% soy wax and are 6.8 ounces each. The one thing I noticed about these candles is that it burns evenly. I didn't notice that there were sides that ended lopsided or anything like that. When I first saw that it was Eucalyptus scent I first thought UH OH (I used to have stinky eucalyptus trees near my childhood home!) But actually as I burned the candle, I noticed a pleasant greenery type of scent that just added a lovely clean, fresh scent to the living room.

These definitely aren't very strong, which is nice. The candle also burns cleaner thanks to it being made o…

Ursa Major - Cleansing, Smooth Beauty Product [Review]

This company Ursa Major was new to me when I found the opportunity to review their products. I am a little wary of putting unfamiliar skincare items on my skin, so I was a little nervous to try this. But I do love when a company describes themselves as being a "natural alternative to the bland, toxin-laden products that pervade today's marketplace." (Read more on their website)

Take a look at the items I reviewed -


So, one Saturday afternoon, my skin felt SO irritated and grimy and oily and my skin wasn't feeling so great. And so I decided to give this facial wash a try. I'm not usually the kind to go for these, but given the fact that I had this in the bathroom, why not? So, I tried it and you know my skin immediately felt so smooth and clean. I've used it a couple more times since then and it's so nice on my skin. I'm not sure I would use it every day, but it's a wonderful thing to soothe your skin. I highly recommend this.

I also tried out a fe…
