iGotTech Magnetic Screen Door Review



Magnetic Screen Door



The weather is starting to change and it felt really good outside today and that inspired me to hang my new Magnetic Screen Door by iGotTech that I got in the mail the other day for review. I was hoping to hang it on my front door, but my door opening is just a tiny bit too large. The screen will fit doors up to 34″ x 82″ in size. I have a smaller door in my bedroom that leads outside to a patio and the screen fit just perfectly. So I decided to install the screen to that door.  It will be nice this fall to have my door open and let in the fresh cool air and not worry about bugs getting in.


I watched this simple installation video and was ready to install my screen door with the help of my daughter.



The installation was super simple and the screen door was up in minutes and it works and looks great.  It is really easy to use and the magnets snap the screen closed every time. (Sometimes when going into the house the magnets on the one side sticks to my door because my door is metal and not wood.) It is so easy to go in and out even the dogs can do it.



The tape side on the velcro was so sticky I didn’t think I needed to use the little tacks/nails that came with it. The next day when I went I opened my door I noticed  the top of the screen door had fallen down. No problem, I just got the tacks and nailed them in across the top and the screen was back up and secure.

AYL 8-Pin USB Cable Review


Apple MFI Certified 8-Pin 6 Feet Lightning USB Cable 

Accessorise Your Life 


For iPhone 6 / 5S / 5C / 5

 iPad Air / iPad Mini / iPad 4th Gen. / iPod 5th Gen. / iPod Nano 7th Gen.

Official Licensed Product



What a lifesaver this AYL 8-Pin USB Charger/Sync Cable has been. OK… it hasn’t actually “saved” anyone’s life, but it has made my life a lot easier.  I don’t know why the charger/sync cable that comes with the iPhone is so short! It is so inconvenient to use. I like to charge my phone at night so it is ready for the next day. With my new AYL 6 FT cable I can plug my iPhone in to charge and I have enough cable length to reach my bedside table, so I don’t have to get in and out of my bed just to text. I also feel good about using my USB cable with all my Apple products because it has been Apple MFI Certified to meet Apple’s performance standards. AYalso provides a one year warranty.

Propresser Garlic Press Review


Propresser Garlic Press 



I couldn’t wait to try out my new Propresser Garlic Press from Orblue. I decided I would bake some chicken breasts with garlic and ginger. So I opened the box and took out the garlic press and immediately noticed that this was not my old garlic press!  This was a heavy-duty 100% stainless steel beauty. I grabbed my garlic and got most of the skin off and put it in the basket, squeezed the handles, and I was amazed at how easy it was. The handles are nice and thick and feel good in your hands, and are spaced apart for maximum leverage.

That was quick and easy. I thought to myself “How will it handle the ginger?” I cut off a hunk of ginger and got off most of the peeling and put it in the basket and squeezed. Out popped the ginger like magic.

I have a garlic press I bought from a discount chain store and used it once or twice and it sits in kitchen drawer. It was so much trouble trying to use it and the garlic wouldn’t even hardly come out, it was just easier using a knife. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the Propresser Garlic Press actually worked.  I will definitely be using this garlic press for many years to come. 

Things I Love About the Propresser Garlic Press

  • The heavy-duty quality

  • 100% Stainless steel and will not rust, weaken at the joint or break

  • The design

  • Easy clean up

  • Minces garlic or ginger easily in one press

  • Large capacity basket

  • No more stinky garlic hands

  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Salt & Pepper Grinder Mill Review


Salt & Pepper Grinder Mill Review



I really didn’t know what I was missing before I had my Salt & Pepper Grinder Mill by Dutis. Now it is one of my favorite kitchen “toys”. There is something fun about grinding your own fresh pepper, like they do in fancy restaurants, and then you switch directions and grind some fresh salt. It really is convenient having your salt and pepper in one easy step.  I like the taste of the fresh ground peppercorns and I use a course sea salt for my salt. I don’t use the “old-fashioned” salt that is ground to a powder– “highly refined” and “heavily processed” I like a nice organic sea salt, that still has its minerals, which usually comes in large course granules, so the salt grinder side can be quite useful for grinding the salt granules when you need a finer grain of salt.

A few of my favorite things about my Salt & Pepper Grinder Mill —


  1. Guaranteed to last a lifetime or your money back

  2. It’s durable and stylish

  3. Easy to use and clean

  4. Doesn’t make a mess

  5. Easy to fill and re-fill with salt & pepper or other spices of your choice

  6. Doesn’t squeak

  7. Convenient in one unit

  8. You provide the power– don’t have to worry about a motor

  9. Durable stainless steel body and acrylic glass windows

  10. Grinding system made of ceramic

  11. Turn left for salt or right for pepper and it is marked on the top if you forget

I have fallen in love with my PureSOL Konjac Facial Sponges. I have the Original which is in white, and the Activated Bamboo Charcoal in black.  Here are a few of my favorite  facts about both sponges–

  • 100% Natural
  • Eco-Friendly
  • Naturally Sustainable

I have oily skin but get dry patches on my face and I have tried so many different ways to exfoliate my face. I am not using commercial facial cleansers to cleanse and exfoliate my face anymore because of all the harsh chemicals and toxins, I am looking for new “green” alternatives. My face would be so red and irritated afterwards and the next morning I would still have a few patchy dry areas.

 PureSOL Konjac Facial Sponges have come to the rescue.  They are so easy to use, and you don’t have to use a cleanser with them.  I sometimes use a little Dr. Bronner’s Castile bar soap in the shower when I wash my face. My favorite way to use my sponge is when I get up in the morning or before bed right at my bathroom sink with just plain warm water. I just let warm water run over the sponge cupped in my hands until it becomes soft and full of water. Then I  massage the konjac sponge all over my face and neck in a small circular motions.  It is so easy and no mess. I was never one of those people who could splash water on my face to wash off soap without getting water everywhere. It is small enough to hold in my hand and reach those awkward areas around the nose.  I also have a nostril piercing that was so hard to exfoliate around and I would always have dry skin or soap build up around it that drove me crazy. Now I gently clean around my piercing and I do not have the dry skin problem anymore… love that!  Plus those pesky little blackheads that like to live on my nose are almost all gone.  The texture of my skin has improved so much and my make-up goes on smoother and looks great. I will definitely be a lifelong user.

 Quoted from PureSOL–

Konjac is a moisture rich plant fibre which is by nature alkaline, and thus balances the acidity of the skin’s impurities and oils. The unique net like structure of the sponge gently massages the skin, breaks down dirt, stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells. Leaving the skin extremely clean and refreshed!

SiliGuy Flexible Cell Phone Holder


SiliGuy Flexible Cell Phone Holder

Innovative Design 101


I went for a bike ride today and used my SiliGuy Flexible Cell Phone Holder to attach my phone to my bike handlebars. I like to use an app on my phone to see how far I have been and the pace I have ridden my bike.  I didn’t have pockets to put my phone in and with the Siliguy I can see my phone and hear when the app gives me my workout updates.

SiliGuy holding my cell phone on my bike

SiliGuy is a flexible little guy that will hold your cell phone for you when you can’t.  It has flexible arms and legs that can adjust to your cell phone size or even a GPS or other small handheld device you are using. The “head” or hook at the top can be adjusted to fit what you are hanging it from too. It does not have to be permanently installed with a sticky adhesion or suction cup, so when you are finished you just unhook it and take it with you to the next location and with the flexible head/hook attach it again.

SiliGuy Phone Holder

I like to use the GPS on my phone when driving to places I am not familiar with and SiliGuy is great for holding my cell phone where I can easily hear it and view the directions.

Flexible Cell Phone Holder



I love using my SiliGuy Flexible Cell Phone Holder because it is convenient and easy to use and the possibilities are endless. It makes a great gift idea and has a one year guarantee.

Nami Naturals Raw Shea Butter Review/Giveaway



Nami Naturals Raw Shea Butter Review

Natural & Unrefined

100% Pure – No Additives – Ivory


I did it. I just made my very first batch of whipped shea butter. I was really intimidated at the thought of making my own homemade body moisturizer, but I knew I needed to try it. I had received a 16 oz.bag of all natural unrefined  Raw Shea Butter from Nami Naturals to review for my blog.  I also received an E-Book that explains all about Shea Butter and its many wonders. The e-book also has some good recipes for making your own shea butter creations.

The Karite tree also called “Shea” produces a fruit that has the nut inside. Shea butter is made from those nuts. The e-book is very interesting and goes on to explain how this nut has been invaluable for the African people for centuries. In fact they use every part of the tree from the leaves and sap to the roots and bark. For lumber, food, medicine and more, nothing is wasted from this precious tree.

I am amazed by how nutrient rich this nut is. It contains fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. When used on the skin a good quality shea butter can-

  • help neutralize free radical damage

  • fade age spots

  • reduce fine lines and wrinkles

  • stimulate collagen production

 When I finished the e-book and learned how incredible l and anti-aging shea butter is, I was ready to tackle making the shea butter recipe. Here is my recipe for some super fluffy whipped body butter.

Whipped body butter recipe

Whipped Body Butter Recipe

1/2 Cup Nami Naturals Shea Butter

1/4 Cup Coconut Oil

1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Essential Oil Of Your Choice (optional)


In a glass bowl gently melt shea butter over a double boiler *do NOT microwave* on low heat or place the glass bowl of unmelted shea butter in a bigger bowl and then fill bigger bowl with hot water. *Do NOT overheat the oils, just enough to get the shea butter to start melting*

Add olive oil and coconut oil to the melted shea butter,

Put the glass bowl of oils in the refrigerator to chill. Oil must be chilled before you can whip it. Maybe 20 mins. until the top of the oil starts to become firm again, but not too hard. Remove from fridge. 

cold oil mixture


Using the whisk attachment on your mixer, start whisking the oils. Stop and scrape down the edges of the bowl and make sure everything is evenly incorporated. The cold oil sorta sticks to the bowl.

Continue to whip the oil mixture and now you can start adding your essential oils. Add as many drops as you need to create the strength of the fragrance your are trying to achieve. Continue to whip the oil mixture. Your body butter should be starting to get fluffy by now.

whipping oils for body butter

Continue to wipe down the sides of the bowl and whip the body butter. You want to whip the butter for  at least 20 or mins. Incorporate as much air into the whipped butter as you can. Just enjoy yourself.  The more you whip the fluffier it will get. I can’t believe the texture it achieves. I just love touching it. I almost wanna eat it. It looks like super rich whipped cream.

Store your new body butter in a pretty glass airtight jar. I used the cutest little Ball Canning Jar to store mine in. I love using glass canning jars to storing everything in. My daughter made a beautiful little stitched cover for my jar. What a great gift this would make.
