Luster Premium White Review

Being a part of BzzAgent, I get to try some of the newest  products available.  That's right up my alley.  I love trying new things.  This time I decided to share this review with Neil.  So he's taking over on Cotton Pickin Cute today and will be our review expert for Luster Premium White - 1 Hour White today.  I had to pull a few teeth (I couldn't resist the pun) to get him to post pictures.
Hi everyone, I'm Neil and and I'd like to share my thoughts on the Luster Whitening System, in my first review today.

Every time we see the whitening products in the store, we stop to look but never buy.  I've had my doubts about whether they would really work. Finally, I get to find out first hand.  I'll start with a before pic.

Here's a few facts from the Luster pamphlet:

  • The Luster 1 Hour White system is the only whitening product that offers the same light activating technology as your dentist.
  • Whiten on your schedule - they guarantee that you'll start seeing results in as little as 30 minutes.  That's 2X faster than strips. 
  • Satisfaction guaranteed.  If you're not satisfied, they will refund the price of your purchase.
Sounds good to me.  Let's put it to the test.

The package includes:
  1. Accelerator Mouth Rinse
  2. Super Whitener Gel
  3. Activating Whitening Light - with 4 AAA batteries included
The instructions are simple.  3 Easy Steps.
  1. Rinse with Accelerator Mouth Rinse
  2. Brush each tooth with Super Whitener Gel
  3. Apply Activating Whitening Light for 2 Minutes
You can repeat steps 1-3 up to one hour for a beautiful, whiter smile.

Here's the after photo.
This was after doing 15 - 2 minute treatments over 2 days.  You can do this up to 20X's.  So that gives me 5 more treatments to go.

It did a better job than I thought it would and  I wouldn't hesitate to buy it myself or recommend it to friends.  

I'm really impressed by how much whiter they are and how much cleaner they look in general.  During the first 10 treatments I didn't experience any sensitivity but during the last 5 my teeth started feeling slightly sensitive.  Would it stop me from using it again.  No way,  it wasn't that bad and the results were totally worth it.  It's recommended that you should perform 5 treatments every 2-3 months.  I will.

Let's take a look at one more before and after picture together.
This is after only 15 of the 20 suggested treatments.

Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room Tower Fan Is Keeping Me Cool Review

During these dog days of summer, there are two things that don't go hand and hand.  That's staying cool and lower electric bills.  Honeywell QuietSet Tower Fan can help with that.

With prices rising on everything from food to gas Neil have been taking a hard to find things that we can control to save money.  When Neil started talking about setting the thermostat higher, poison darts flew from my eyes.  Are you serious?  We live in Florida for goodness sakes!

All in all, I knew he was right.  For the past month I've been able to really review the QuietSet Whole Room Tower Fan (HY-280).  We moved our thermostat up from 74 to 77 during the day and up from 72 to 76 during the night.  We replaced our small oscillating desktop fan in the bedroom with the QuietSet and boy did it make a difference.  We were more comfortable while we slept and best of all was the quiet factor. 

The Honeywell QuietSet® Whole Room Tower Fan uses the new and revolutionary QuietSet® technology which lets you choose from 8 levels of quiet operation as you adjust the cooling power of this fan. Use the fan to help you feel cooler and more comfortable without the excessive noise of a standard fan! This sleek and elegant fan is perfect for a medium to large room while offering you a chance to save up to 20% on heating and cooling bills.

 I really like the slim, elegant look and being able to keep the remote control next to the bed makes operating it a breeze (forgive the pun).  It's takes up a minimum of space and isn't visually distracting like other fans.   The fan is appropriate for medium to large rooms.  Our bedroom is 15 ft x 18 ft and it's cools just fine. 

There are so many wonderful features with the QuietSet.  Powerful, quiet, whole room circulation with 8 levels of Quiet Control including "whisper" and "white noise”.  Sleek LED Electronic Controls with Auto Shut-Off Timer has multiple settings (1, 2, 4, and 8 hour settings).  The Remote Control Nest and Cord Management Oscillation keeps things looking neat.  It has an Easy-to-carry handle. 

I was given the opportunity from the company to review the fan but I whole-heartily would recommend this the Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room Tower fan to anyone.  With an MSRP of $69.99 and a 1 Year Warranty, it's an affordable option for any household.

Disclosure:  The product(s) provided for the review were sent to me free of charge from the company or the PR agency. All opinions are my own and were not influenced in anyway.

I'm Home and Playing Catch Up

I've been feeling like a fish out of water lately.
I'm amazed by this plastic bottle fish sculpture.  Can you believe this is made from recycled platci bottles.  How awesome and creative is this persons mind?  You know how much I love the concept of recycling or upcycling useless trash into something of worth.

I just wanted to let ya'll know that I'm not ignoring you.  Please don't feel slighted if you haven't hear from me or I haven't responded to your comments lately.  I haven't felt great for a while but the last couple of weeks more so than usual.  Well I finally ended up in the hospital Friday and wasn't released until Monday morning.  I'm don't have any answers but I don't have any heart damage that they can find.  Because I have an abnormal heartbeat it still shows up as a very low pulse but it's just the tireness that's getting to me.

I'm back home and trying to catch up with numerous things.
I hope all of you are well and I miss spending more time keeping in touch.  Love all of you and I read and appreciate every comment I get.♥

Jockey Chose Us As The Coolest Couple

Okay so maybe they didn't choose us as "The Coolest Couple".  Last month we were asked to become one of the "Coolest Couples and give the Jockey's Stay Cool Underwear a try.

I wish I could say that was us in the picture to the left but I won't even try that.  And don't worry we're not going to make you look at a picture of us in our undies either.  We are going to tell you what we thought of their new stay cool line. 
Lets get personal.

Summer cranks up and the heat and it gets pretty uncomfortable.  This Southern Belle doesn't glisten ~ I sweat!  Just bein' honest. I'll do just about anything to stay cool.  Sundress's are a favorite because they let the breeze through and keep the heat down.  Shorts are a must and pants will rarely been seen until after October here.

As part of Jockey’s mission to help people stay cool this summer, they've asked their Jockey Inner Circle members to review their really cool underwear.

Jockey Staycool underwear is the only underwear that uses technology originally developed for NASA  to help your skin feel up to 3 degrees cooler.  How cool is that?

My opinion:

  • I was a little skeptical at first.  I was expecting a good fit because I already wear and like Jockey.  As far as cooling up to 3 degrees, well I wasn't so sure that I would even notice that.  ~  Surprise...I did!  I came home after wearing them out one afternoon and no damp feeling wetness that I sometimes notice.  By the way, it was 96 degrees on my way home at after 8pm,  that would make anyone feel hot and glisteny (not a real word) down there.
  • The fit was great too.  Mine were black and have a really nice hug to them.  No climbing or bunching for me. I hate panties that climb up my cheeks.
Neil's Opinion:

  • Wearing the Boxer Briefs was a first for Neil.  He normally chooses briefs for the day and boxes at bedtime.  He agreed that they did feel a little cooler and he didn't get the normal stickiness between the legs.  He also thought the material was comfortable.
  • What he didn't like was the extra material on his legs that you get when you where boxer briefs.  Maybe it's a hot Florida thing.  He also said the fabric banding of the legs climbed a little and that wasn't very comfortable.
  • He does want a pair briefs out of this fabric.  He would also like a pair that has a matching waist band rather than the underwear having 2 colors.
Our combined Thoughts:

For me it was 2 thumbs up!
  A win-win all the way around.
With Neil it was a split decision.  Loved the cooler fabric.  Loved the texture of the fabric but not for briefs which made them climb.  He also thought that a smaller size might have solved that problem.  Being the first time he wore boxer briefs he ordered his regular brief size.  So when fall gets here he may buy some and give them another try in a smaller size.

■All-in-all, I love the new Jockey Staycool collection and I'm sure I will be replenishing my pantie drawer with them.

Would you like to try them for yourself?

■I have 5 coupon codes (25% OFF Jockey® staycool styles + free shipping) to share with my readers.  If you'd like one just leave me a comment below telling me why you would like to try them.  The first 5 readers to respond will get a coupon code.

To learn more about the Jockey® staycool collection, please visit: http://www.jockey.com/staycool.

Disclosure:  This blog is written and edited by me.  Jockey sent me the Staycool clothing to review but all opinions reflected are always my own honest and truthful thoughts.

The Lazy Beach Days of Summer

There's nothing like having family visit.
Being with the people you love and miss. My sister who's my best friend and my nephew Juan have been here for over a month.  It's been the most time we've spent together since we were kids at home.
Juan and Neil have always have always enjoyed spending time together. The kids all ragged Neil this summer about being a hippie.  They've never seen him with a ponytail before.

We've had such a raining summer.  I don't mind it at all.  I love days like that at the beach.  It kicks up a wonderful breeze that makes it possible to leave the house and enjoy being outdoors.
Joni went to Atlanta and picked up her daughter Michelle and her grandkids.  Miranda will turn 14 on the 19th of Aug.  I can't believe she's getting so old. Michelle has a heart as big as the moon!  When Miranda was little she was the most like me.  We both have a big love of shoes and all  things girlie.  Which she probably thinks is a little lame right now. 
We did a little shell hunting and found this strange little crab.  None of us had seen one like this at the beach before.
Victor decided he wanted to be buried in the sand.  Miranda was only too happy to oblige.
Victors so funny and silly.  I wish you could spend time with him.
I was so glad Fidensio came them.  He's a great kid and getting to spend time with him was really special.

My niece Stephanie, who's Miranda and Victors mom didn't get to come down.  Neither did my nephew Hoopie, who just found out that he's going to be a new father.  I wish they could have been here with everyone else.  It's always so much fun to get the whole group together.  Lots of laughing and a house filled with joy and love.  I don't think they have any idea how much I love them all.  Neil loves these guys so much too.  He's been really busy and couldn't enjoy as much time with them as he wanted too.
Isn't this picture of Victor the greatest.  It shows us the carefree days of summer.  It just kind of says it all doesn't it.

I hope you're enjoying the last days of summer wherever you are.

What do Terminix, Ladies Home Journal and Purina Cat Chow Have In Common

I've been so grateful for all the rain we've had this summer. Unfortunately along with the rain comes the mosquito's.
That's why Neil was so happy when I won a Terminix All Clear Mosquito Mister Lantern Edition. 

Keeping late hours does have it's benefits sometimes.  I was just going to bed and caught the local WTEV CBS47-WAWS FOX30 Action News program and learned they have a daily facebook giveaway.  I'm so glad I got back up and entered.  Can you believe my first time and I won!  YIPPEE!!!
Next I got an email from the Purex Team saying I was one of the winners of the Purex Sweepstakes.  I won a FREE years subscription to the Ladies Home Journal magazine.  Goodie a win just for me!

I've always been a big fan of magazines. Even with the Internet and Pinterest being like my own personal magazine, there's still nothing quite like sitting or laying down and turning the fresh pages of a new magazine. Aaahhh....so relaxing.   It just makes me smile when I go to the mail box and find LHJ waiting there for me.

Have you picked up a copy of LHJ lately.  Let me tell you, it isn't your mothers old Ladies Home Journal.  It's a new magazine with a new attitude.  After asking thousands of women what they really need in a magazine, they have rebuilt the Journal to revolve around you: your hopes, needs, health, happiness, and personal growth.

Where do you find your inspiration? I find mine in magazines and on Pinterest. Blogs have been a huge part of my life for the last 3 years. It opens up the world to me. I love being able to see what's trending across the country or across the world.

If you'd like your own 1 years subscription for the low price of ONLY $5.99 you can click here to subscribe.  Thank you Purex Team for my wonderful new subscription!

Even the kitties got a surprise.  I think they were pretty happy when the FREE sample of new Purina Cat Chow Healthy Weight arrived.
Our Kitty's are keeping me busy and happy, so I want to keep them healthy.  I think they like it don't you.
They play hard, eat a lot and then pass out.  I bet they're still dreaming of their day of antics.
They spread out but always close together.

By the way, did I tell you we ended up keeping 3 of the 5 kittens.  I told Neil we'd only keep 1 - the little Siamese looking one that I named Izzy but as time went on and the other 2 didn't find homes...we named them too.  The black ones look so much alike.  The little girl has a white spot on her belly.  The boy is solid black.  Their names are Pearl and CB (said more like seabe - 1 word) which is short for Crow Bar.  Can you guess which one my sister named and which one Neil named? lol.
They're so precious and have provided us a lot of entertainment.  It didn't take long for them to become family.  Each one of them is so loving.
Thanks for stopping and visiting.  If you haven't entered my giveaways yet be sure to check out the right sidebar where I have 3 listed.  Just click on the photo to go to the post and enter.
Good Luck Ya'll!!!

Adora CHOCOLATE Calcium Supplement Review and Giveaway

My cousin Greg, (yep the one you’ve heard me mention so often), just asked me the other day if I took calcium supplements. When I said no, he was so shocked. REALLY!

I know you’re thinking why in the world would your male cousin be asking that question. Greg knows a lot about osteoporosis because his mother, my Aunt Nita had it, along with 10 million other Americans ~ both men and women, mostly women but men can suffer from it too.

My sweet Aunt suffered from many broken bones and Greg’s comments got me thinking about my own bones. That’s why I'm so happy to get the chance to review Adora Calcium Supplements.

Did you know that by the time we reach our 30’s, we naturally stop building bone mass and start losing it. I’ve never been a big milk drinker, just with the occasional chocolate chip cookie or bowl of cereal. Well that's no way enough to meet the recommended daily calcium intake. See the chart below:
Calcium & Vitamin D Requirements By Age*
  Age         Calcium mg/day     Vitamin D IU/day
4-8              800                  200

9-18             1300                 200

19-50            1000                 200

51-70            1200                 400

70+              1200                 600

Adequate calcium intake plays a vital role in all stages of a female's life. Adora Calcium is a great way for women and girls of all ages to meet their calcium and vitamin D requirements.

My Thoughts:

I really don’t like swallowing pills, does anyone? I have an even harder time swallowing thick liquids. But I have never had trouble eating chocolate. You might already know that if you read this blog. That’s where Adora comes in. They’ve solved all my problems and best of all made it a NOT so guilty pleasure. Now I don’t have to worry about that chocolate craving because it’s a good thing when it’s combined with my calcium supplement. Yea!!!

I'm mean it when I say this is good.  It taste like a treat,  it's not like a medicine tasting chocolate. It doesn't have a chalky taste.  It's good!
Adora® Calcium Supplement is the most delicious way to get the calcium you need every day. Each disk provides 50% of your Daily Value of calcium with vitamin D3 and magnesium for optimal absorption. Crave Your Calcium!

Quick Facts about Adora®

I Want Ann Taylor To Make Me Beautiful

Beautiful on the outside that is.  I love Ann Taylor clothing. 
 Mixing the old with the new is a classic v-neck cardigan sporting bold color blocks.

No, this isn't a sponsored post by Ann Taylor.  I'm just in a fashion state of mind and Ann Taylor seems to know what I want.  Just look at these stylish pieces I fell in love with.  To see the prices and descriptions you can check out my pinterest page here.  I've pinned them under Clothes and accessories or Jewelry.  You can also click on the photo to be transported there.  Doesn't that sound so Star Trek futuristic.

I have really been an orange kind of girl this year.  There are so many hues that I drop in the orange bucket, like one of my favorite which is coral.   Anyway back to the top below.  I love the way it softly drapes the body.  The soft laser cut pleats Shirred beneath front yoke. Back zipper. Rounded hem with side slits.

This Mini Graphic Print Cocoon Top with the Jewel neck is darlin'. I love the shape of the short dolman sleeves.  Ann Taylor is one of those stores that oozes quality and sophistication.  You can see that in the details like the gathering not only beneath front but the back yoke too. I didn't think I would like a gathered elasticized hem but I've changed my mind.  I want this.

Graphic prints are so IN now and this Graphic Print Pouch is a steal.  And it's rockin with color too! 
Source: loft.com via Tracy on Pinterest

I've always been a huge fan of clutches.  They're so retro classic, it makes me think of the old glamour of Hollywood movie stars.   Croc embossed patterns are always a classic, chic way to go.  I also think of Kate Middleton's impeccable style.  How do we refer to Kate now that she's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge?  This gorgeous clutch is on the People Style Watch.

Loving this fun necklace! Hibiscus Neon Light Surf Green.  It even sounds fun.

Ann Taylor's Square Double Wrap Watch is the perfect pop of color that would add a trendy touch to a classic outfit.

I'm a little greedy.  I want the classic brown croc embossed Square Double Wrap Watch too.
Source: loft.com via Tracy on Pinterest

This is where my extra greedy side shows.  Two watches just aren't enough.  I also want this cool Tortoiseshell Linked Strap Watch.
Source: loft.com via Tracy on Pinterest

I can almost smell the leather of these beautiful Elena Cutout Sandals.

 Perfect Exotic Embossed Leather Peeptoe Pumps.  The neutral color would go with so many outfits and they look comfortable too.

I'm dreaming of a shopping spree.  I purely selfish, all for me shopping spree.

What are you dreaming of?
