Draebel - Excellent #Beard and Facial Hair Care Products! [Review]

Know a guy (or are YOU a guy) with facial hair that he cares a lot about? Well I think I found the perfect product for him (or you; if you happen to be the one with facial hair to care for...) 

It's the newest item I've seen so far called Draebel. Jesse Ives launched Draebel, Inc via Kickstarter to bring beard care and bath and body care for men. When you check out their website , the first thing that comes across is the personality of the company  - an uncompromising way of sticking to quality and what they know works best. I think that's pretty cool! 

My brother had the chance to try out a few of their samples and his first reaction to the product was that it smelled really good and the scent lasted a while too. This is great because Draebel does say that their fragrance blends are meant to last for hours and evolve throughout the day to give you a unique scent.  

My brother especially enjoyed the scent of the Catch Hell Beard Oil. He also sampled the K.O. Beard Balm, which he thought applied great and smoothed out his facial hair nicely throughout the day. Also the scent of this was good too, he said! 
Overall, the Draebel beard care items my brother sampled were a big hit! He highly recommends giving this a try. Their beard balm is priced at $25 right now and I would check out everything they have to offer. Their beard oil is about $20. The mustache wax (we got a sample for it but my brother doesn't have a mustache so we couldn't give feedback for that item!) but make sure you check out their website if you do have one that needs taken care of. 

Make sure you also follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

I received the above items in exchange for my honest review.

My Top 4 Stain Causing Incidents of the Week [And How Purex Helped] [Review + Giveaway!]

I'm not exactly excited to do laundry but you know? Stains happen. Stains. Happen. And this week has been pretty special with how much stains have happened and how messy I have been all week.

1) My nosebleed.

Tragically the other night, I got a completely unexpected nosebleed. It happened as I was getting ready for bed. While I rearranged pillows, I brought one up to my face too fast and hit myself in the nose.

Nosebleed central.

So tragically the only thing nearest to me at that moment was my sweatshirt. Of course right? Well, I grabbed it, held it to my nose until the bathroom became available.

Not a pretty site and I was so happy to see this sweatshirt get clean.

2) Coffee.

I'm not a morning person so the odds are I'm not going to be very neat. So, as I get ready my coffee together, settle down for a bit before I have to get ready for work, I sloshed a bunch of coffee on my sweatshirt. Not an experience I was happy with - a huge stain displayed itself on my sweatshirt.
3) Coffee grounds.

I prepare my morning coffee the night before and so as I was getting my coffee beans ground up, the coffee grinder slipped in my hand and a whole bunch of coffee grounds spilled on my sweatshirt.

4) Ketchup.

Does anyone else stain their clothes with ketchup as much as I do? I'm so guilty of this. I don't even know when this happened but I managed to stain the front of my shirt with ketchup.

But Purex plus Clorox 2 saved the day when it comes to fighting stains this past week! I think this is my new favorite to add to the laundry routine. It makes clothes look so fresh and clean - plus it smells great too. I really like the addition of Clorox 2 to fight the stains and it is safe for colored clothes I know for me it isn't easy to break free of the routine of detergent that I use, but this is definitely something that I encourage you to give a try!

Check out more details on the Purex Clorox 2 here and where you can find it in a store near you. Or you can purchase now on!

Best of all I get to giveaway some free product coupons to one lucky reader! Ends 6/3. US Only.

Renpure Shampoo - Do Better Things for Your Hair [Review + Giveaway]

I'm always on the lookout for nice shampoo. Something that has good ingredients in it that won't tear apart my hair or make it any worse than it already is!

So I discovered Renpure. It's a family owned business that likes to treat it's customers like they are a part of the family. And I think that's a pretty cool philosophy to have! Plus they make sure they're choosing excellent ingredients for their products. Just knowing their products and their customers matter a lot to them makes me feel really good about this company.

I had the chance to try out a variety of their Black Label Coconut shampoos and conditioners! The weird thing is only over the last couple of years I have really gotten to like coconut. I don't know what the difference is but I remember as a kid I just didn't like it. But now I love the stuff!

First I received two different kinds of shampoos - Coconut Water Shampoo and Coconut Milk Shampoo. What's the difference? I like to think about things like that.

Here's some info about the Coconut Water Shampoo -

"The best way to start your day is with our refreshing Coconut Water Hydrating Shampoo. This formula gently cleans hair with coconut oil to help restore moisture, infuse nutrients, and create stronger hair."

And some info about the Coconut Milk Shampoo -

"Our Coconut Milk Nourishing Shampoo uses super smoothing Coconut Oil to help lubricate and protect your hair from damage. Our Coconut shampoo gently cleans each hair fiber to give way to incredibly soft, super fresh hair!"

I actually have tried the Coconut Milk Shampoo first. It felt SO good on my hair. It softened it and made it feel so good. I don't wash my hair a lot, actually. My hair does better when I wash it every few days, so using this shampoo felt extremely refreshing on my scalp and on my hair. Best of all, it didn't dry my hair out at all.

I loved that!

I've been using this shampoo so far since I had the chance to review these shampoos. But to be honest, I love the scene of this shampoo so much, I've been using the Coconut Water Shampoo as the occasional body wash. LOVE IT!

Next in the lineup is the conditioner! So far I've only tried the Coconut Milk Conditioner and this is so nice for my hair because it tends to get really dry and it just makes it so shiny at the end of it it all.

Renpure has so many amazing products and I'm such a huge fan of their shampoos. I can't wait to try the Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner! This has been such a fantastic experience. Plus, if you check them out on Amazon, for the Coconut Milk Nourishing Shampoo and the Conditioner - they come out at about $9.49 each for a 16 ounce container. I think that is an EXCELLENT price. If you want quality shampoo and conditioner at a price you can afford - buy this today. If you're like me and you don't wash your hair every day, I am sure this will last you a while. Purchase now!

Best of all one lucky reader will get the chance to receive shampoo and conditioner by Renpure! Enter via Rafflecopter below. Ends 6/3.

Cool Off With the Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan [Review]

I had the chance to review this amazing fan by Ozeri. I've had a chance to review other items by them before and they just have great quality stuff.

If last summer was any indication to me, I really need to up my game with the fan and cooling action inside my apartment. There's a lot of heat that hits my home at the end of the day and it's so tough to keep cool and relaxed when that happens.

Have you ever tried to cool off a few people sitting in different spots in a room with just one fan? Well that's not that easy is it? That's why I love the Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan.

First of all, it has a few different selections of how much turning you want to have happen. It takes a bit to figure it out but it has 60 degrees, 90 degrees, 120 degrees and 360 degrees. I appreciate this a lot because when it's hot, I don't like sitting close by people and yet I don't want to worry about whether or not a fan is hitting someone!

Next is that it's really quiet. You don't even hear it! I'm not annoyed by loud fans but I know last summer I had about five going in the living room alone and it sounded like an airplane hanger. So one less noisy fan in the room is a wonderful thing in my book!

It also displays room temperature! I always wonder whether the room temp it displays is right. Although I'm sure it is! I'm thinking to myself...really? It's 70 degrees in here? Or 86 (as it says above!) I'm sure it's right but it's always so weird to see. I think that's such a cool feature.

For long term use, it's tough to say. We'll see if this can run the gamut of summer time use! Most of my cheaper box fans ran out and I'll have to buy new this year. If I can get this to last a couple of years, I'll be so happy with this.

The one small thing that I noticed is that I wasn't sure how stable the fan was when I put the tower together - it also took me a while to actually get this put together! So if you have little kids or pets, that's something to keep in mind.

Make sure you purchase this great fan today while summer and warm weather is on your mind!

Beard Shampoo - A Must Have for Men with Facial Hair

beard shampoo

My older brother has facial hair that he takes care of and he's always looking out for products to try out that would be a good match for this skin and facial care. So, when I heard about this beard shampoo, I knew he would want to try it out.

Beardsman Spirit offers up a LOT of products for men, including things like beard oils, beard shampoos, and mustache waxes. They have high quality products and I see so many of their items with high ratings.

So are you guy who likes the idea of a clean, soft beard (or facial hair?)? Well this is probably the product for you. My brother raved about this - he really liked this a lot. He also recommended this as a pretty nice shave gel as well. He also thought this smelled great too - a nice pine scent that makes you feel like you're outdoors!

One major plus is the bottle size! You usually see so many of these things in a small bottle but this comes in such a generous size and at a great rate too - $14.95 on Amazon.

Purchase a bottle of this great beard shampoo today on Amazon.

Planning a Dinner Party That Caters to Individuals on All Types of Diets

There is no doubt about the fact that planning a dinner party is more difficult nowadays than it ever was before. One of the reasons why this is true is because so many individuals have food allergies or are on special diets. This means that you need to know each one of your guests well. Or you need to plan a meal that would suit individuals who have a variety of food allergies. This means that you will have a lot of different options to serve. Planning a dinner party nowadays may require a little bit of work, but it is definitely well worth the effort. You are able to spend time with family members and friends, enjoying up building association and simply having a good time.

When it comes to planning the main course, try to include a couple of different dishes that would suit individuals who are on carb free diets, who are vegetarians, and who have some kind of dietary restrictions, like those who only consume a gluten-free diet. This means that instead of making one big dish that everyone can serve themselves from, it might be better to have a couple of smaller dishes. If you were to make a lasagna, for example, individuals who are gluten-free, vegetarian, or who cannot eat dairy would not be able to consume the lasagna. However, if you made some grilled meat, grilled vegetables, salad, mashed potatoes, or other similar items, individuals would be able to pick and choose the things that they would want. This makes it much more comfortable for you and your guests.

You also need to do a little bit of preparation when it comes to the dessert and drinks you will serve. If you know that your guests are on a diet, you might want to find some low carb alcoholic mixers to serve. It may also be a good idea to have some nonalcoholic beverages for other individuals. Basically, you want to have a variety of options available. This means that no matter what kind of diet a person is on, they will still be able to enjoy your dinner party.

Even though it is a little bit more difficult nowadays to cater to a variety of individuals, it is well worth the effort. And thanks to the Internet, it is very easy for you to get ideas on different dishes you can serve. Some websites even have ideas to help you plan an entire dinner party, including appetizers, the main dish, dessert, and drinks.
