Coosh CBT791B Ultra-Slick Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker – Product Review.

I LOVE my Coosh speaker! I have had quite a few different portable speakers. What can I say? I really love music, and want the best sound quality possible while using my phone to play my music!

cooshspeaker1I’ve tried a few speakers with cords, and a few without (bluetooth). This one is my FAVORITE. I really only listen to it for an hour or two at a time, and it seriously seems to last a week before I have to go charge it. I have no idea how much my boyfriend uses it when I’m not around, but I do know he takes it into the bathroom with him so he can sing in the shower. 🙂 Haha I can’t laugh, I do it too. The thing is, he used to perch his phone precariously close to the shower so that he could hear the music or switch tracks…and with this, he doesn’t have to risk his phone’s life anymore..considering that’s how his last phone died! It’s awesome loud…loud enough to hear over the shower, and the buttons on the top are awesomely handy. No more having to unlock my phone’s screen to switch tracks. Yay!

I should mention that this speaker has a lot of BASS! ❤ ❤ If I put it in the wrong spot, It’ll vibrate right off the shelf or counter. Haha that’s what I call bass! This speaker sounds wonderful. It’s always clear. If it’s not, turn the volume down on your phone just one notch. I promise, it’ll even things out almost every single time.

I know you want to go check this out and order one for yourself. You’re in luck! They’re only $47.67 here:Coosh CBT791B Portable Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Extended Range Speaker with Built in Speakerphone, Rechargeable Battery (Black)

As Always, Stay Beautiful & Think Divergently!

Francois et Mimi Stainless Steel Black Breadbox – Product Review

Oh, how I LOVE to update my kitchen! Lately, Francois et Mimi has been helping me make my home beautiful. Today I want  to tell you all about their beautiful bread boxes. They have quite a few models, but I got the fancy black and silver one. It’s so pretty!
It’s also really, really large! It doesn’t take up any more space than my old one, but it holds a lot more! I’m so thrilled with this addition to my kitchen! It’s really fancy and modern-looking, and fits in perfectly with my decor! I also love the way the the top rolls back so smoothly. The kids actually close it, because they think it’s ‘fun’! You can buy yours on Amazon for only $19.95, which I think is an amazing price. Here’s a link:Francois et Mimi Stainless Steel Black Roll-top Bread Box

Luxury 1000 Thread 100% Cotton Sheets – by Francois Et Mimi – Product Review

I have the most amazing, comfortable bed. It’s a king-sized, double-pillow-top mattress, and honestly the most comfortable bed that I’ve ever had. It’s so easy to fall asleep, even if you just sat down for a second. I have a pretty serious issue with it though: sheets never seem to stay on the darn thing!

The struggle is real: I toss and turn a bit in the middle of the night, which tugs at our wal-mart jersey-knit sheets, and inevitably pulls the corner up in the middle of the night, leaving it free to attack my pillows and my face, and literally annoy the crap out of me. Once I notice that the sheets have come up, I CANNOT get back to sleep until it’s fixed. This isn’t really a problem when I’m sleeping alone, buy my sweetheart really doesn’t enjoy me waking him up in the middle of the night so that he can stand up while I pull the sheets back up and fix them. This almost always earns me a grumble and a dirty look, but I can’t help it!

Luckily, one of my favorite companies to work with sheetsallowed me to try one of their sheet sets. It’s a 700-thread count 100% cotton, king-sized set with a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillowcases. It’s the most beautiful lavender color!

These sheets are a bit heavy, which is perfect for the wintertime, and actually pretty great for summer, too, because I can take the comforters off the bed, just use the sheet, and actually feel like I’m covered up. They’ve got a nice satin-y finish to them, and we both really liked the way they felt to lie between. Not super-soft like our old jersey-knit sheets, but not scratchy or uncomfortable at all.

We have been using these for awhile now…I even got a second set, I love them so so much! I haven’t put my old jersey-knit sheets on since I got these…nor have I had to ‘fix’ my corner of the bed! NOT ONCE! I’ll never ever go back to super-cheap sheets again…it’s just not worth it!

If you’re ready to upgrade to ‘adult’ bedding, too, check out these sheet sets on Amazon. They have a TON of beautiful colors to match just about any decor, and they can be found in Full, Queen, or King sizes! Here’s a link to make things easier for you: 1000 Thread Count Luxury Soft Cotton Silky Sateen Sheet Set, Extra Deep Pocket (Queen, White)

Smooth Viking Beard Oil – Product Review

I love my man. I really, really do. I don’t exactly love his beard, though! I mean…it looks good. Heck, it looks great! I just don’t really love the way that it feels! He’s simply not a shave every single day type of man. He prefers to wait close to a week between shaving. Like I said, it looks good. His beard grows in pretty well, and he doesn’t keep his mustache too long, so I’m happy…until his beard touches me.

It’s scratchy. Like…really scratchy. You know the feeling when you get your hair cut, and tiny hairs get into your shirt? Yeah…that’s how it feels when he puts his head against my back when we’re lying in bed. I love the way he feels next to me, but I was at the point where I thought the beard might have to go in order for us to get close. Then…I found Smooth Viking! They have an amazing line of beard care products, obviously tailored just for men!

I ordered the beard oil, and at first my boyfriend was disappointed with the glass bottle and dropper system. It looked like my face serums, and he thought it seemed ‘girly’…until he tried using it! 😀 He had tried another brand’s oil in the past, and hated the way it ran everywhere and got all over his fingers. (I guess he doesn’t like to wash his hands..typical man. haha) This oil is great, because with the dropper, you can control exactly where you put it, and how much you use! And I have to be honest, his skin feels more smooth when he uses this after he shaves, and seems to grow in just a little bit softer, now that he’s using it regularly. No more scratchy, so we can finally get close!

I recommend trying the entire Smooth Viking lineup of products, but you can buy this one on Amazon for only $16.95 here:Beard Oil – 100% Natural – Soften Your Beard and Stop Itching – Contains Premium Blend of Nourishing Ingredients – With Avocado Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Moroccan Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, & Vitamin E – Vegan Friendly

I ordered the beard conditioner, and was very happy with the size of the tin that it came in, and the amount in the tin. They didn’t fill it halfway and call it good, and it’s not over-pack and gooing out (it’s nott gooey, though, which surprised me). This is a thick, almost waxy substance that smells subtle, yet nice and manly. It really helps keep the hairs soft, especially towards the end when it starts to get unruly!
