Xium Green Coffee Capsules

Most people I know have a problem with losing weight. No matter what type of exercise you do and how much you eat right you may still have a problem shedding that weight. Also as you get older it starts to get harder and harder for that weight to come off. So people often look to other ways to help them get the weight off. They just need that extra little boost to go along with what they are already doing. I was never one to look at or try diet pills simple because we never had the money to eat regularly and I didn't want to get sick from taking the pills on an empty stomach. But I always kept the idea open to try one some day.

Now that we have the money and are in a better place in life, I am eating right and drinking the water I should and it is a perfect time for me to try Xium's weightloss capsules. I got picked through Tomoson to try them out for free. The first thing I heard about them was that Dr. Oz had talked about them on his show. I don't follow Dr. Oz so this meant nothing to me. I wanted the product to speak for its self.

It shipped very quickly and the packaging was very plain and simple with minimal instructions. But you really don't need many instructions with a diet pill except take 3 capsules 2 times a day with water. What it doesn't tell you is that the capsules smell and taste horribly! It does grow on you but the first time I tried I almost threw them all right back up. I am not  coffee or tea drinker though so it may just be me. Coffee drinkers may enjoy the taste.

Another issue I had is it makes your heart race pretty badly. You feel like you are about to have a heart attack. Doesn't matter what you are doing if you are resting or moving around you will still get the same affect. With that said I would not recommend this product to anyone who has or may have a heart condition.

With all of this being said in the end I did end up losing a little bit of weight so I am happy overall with the product. I only have to deal with the smell/taste and heart racing twice a day and that is something that can be dealt with. I will continue to use the bottle and hope to lose even more weight. If you would like to find out more about this product head on over to the Xium Green Coffee Capsules page on Amazon. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask

I don't sleep well at night so I often take a nap during the day. The worst part of taking a nap during the day is the light that comes in from outside and also the noise from all the traffic. I could often fall asleep but I had trouble staying asleep. I knew I needed something to help me in this struggle so I started looking for sleep masks on Amazon and I couldn't really find one that I liked. When I saw one listed on Tomoson I knew I had to at least apply and try and get it. At the very least it would give me an idea of what I am looking for and the best possible solution would be I would fall in love with it and could stop looking for one.

It shipped very quickly was packaged very well to the point that the box wasn't crushed or anything. When it came I really liked the box, it was simple with nice colors and was straight to the point. When I got the mask out I liked the look of it and I really liked that it had velcro in the back so that it could be adjusted and wasn't just a string on solid strap that may be loose or too tight around your face. The logo placement is nice and I have no problem wearing it with pride. That way if anyone asks me where I got it or the name of the product I will always remember right away.

I had actually forgotten about the ear plugs that came with the sleep mask in a cute little bag. I was extra excited that they were in there because I had wanted to try some of those as well. I just wish the bag was bigger where I could store the sleep mask inside of it as well without folding the mask, but I am happy with the bag for the ear plugs. No one wants to have them sitting around where people could see them but the sleep mask can sit out without people asking questions or being disgusted.

When I used the mask I noticed how well fitting it is to my face. I had heard that many masks leave a gap at the bottom where light can still get in but this mask does not. You can still blink with the mask on and open your eyes, of course, you can't see anything but you have the ability. Also it doesn't mess up your makeup in any way so if you do take a mid day nap the only thing you have to worry about is your pillow messing up the rest of your face because the eye area is covered. You can use this in any temperature and you will never sweat from it.

All in all I find this a very comfortable product. It fits my face very well and doesn't hurt in anyway. (It is pulled up in the picture so that I could see to take the pic) It helps me get to sleep so much faster then what I am use to and helping me to get more sleep as well. If you want to check this product out head over to Bedtime Bliss on Amazon. It comes with a free e-book and a 90 day guarantee!

UV Sight

If you have a pet you have at one time or another had a smell in your home. You aren't sure where it is but you can smell it. You look at your pets and wonder which one had an accident or if they all did. If you are away for a few hours or for a day the urine may dry and then you have no idea where the spot could be in your home. It's frustrating and probably the worst part of being a pet owner. No matter how well trained your pet is they can have an accident. With cats it is also common that there will be urine around the box as well. I was using air fresheners and carpet fresheners to try and control the problem. Then I got accepted to try out, keep, and review UV Sight through Tomoson. I was pretty excited that now I would be able to find and clean the spots that were causing the smell in my home.

When it came I noticed right away that it had clear instructions on how to use it, but I didn't read the instructions thinking it was common sense. I couldn't get the thing to turn on at first and I thought that I had gotten a product that was not functional. But when I went back to the package I noticed that it had a small circle piece of plastic in between the end and the battery pack. Once I unscrewed the end and took out the piece it turned right on. After that I figured that I better look over the rest of the instructions and make sure that everything went smoothly from there. I grabbed my husbands safety glasses and turned off all the lights. I made sure it was dark outside as well because it says it works the best in complete darkness. I went to the room that was the source of the smell I thought and immediately some spots started to glow. I put items down around the edges of the spots so that I could easily find them when I was done looking. I figured I had better check the rest of the house and insure that there were no other spots. Low and behold there were a few other spots in other rooms. I marked them as well. From there I turned the lights back on and put the UV Sight away and got started on cleaning the carpets. When I was done I let them sit so they could dry and then the next morning when I entered those rooms the smell was gone. I had air freshener in hand and I didn't even need it. 

Now when I walk into my home I am greeted by the smell of my plug in air freshener and not the smell of urine or dog. I am so pleased to have found this product. Not only did it help me find the urine spots it also helped me to find the spots on the carpet that my husband had tracked in from his work boots. I believe those were causing smells as well. I am very happy that I could find all of these stains and clean them, I am also happy that this product actually worked and did as well as it said it would. If you would like to find out more information on this product check out UV Sight on Amazon.

Adovia Exfoliating Facial Sea Salts




When it comes to facial scrubs I must admit I am a newbie. I rarely wear makeup and I basically just wash my face in the morning and at night. Up until I started with Tomoson my routine was quick and painless. Now I have all sorts of amazing eye creams, serums, scrubs etc and it seems like it takes forever to get around now. I now understand why all my friends always take so long to get around while I was usually ready to walk out the door in a matter of minutes. Now I actually know how to use all of these products and my skin has been affected in an amazing way. The only thing that I hadn't got to try and wasn't all that familiar with are face scrubs. It sounds easy enough, you know maybe a few minutes of pain free enjoyment and then your left feeling clean and refreshed.  The first time I tried this that was not the truth. I read the instructions and it said wet face and gently massage products in circles on your face. With a tip underneath that says to create a gentle scrub mix with Adovia Mineral Cleanser or soap to make a lather.


I decided if I was really going to test it out I had to do the first. Which was a big mistake. It feels just like you would think salt would feel. It's gritty and it hurts at first. But I suppose to really get the dead skin off your face it should hurt a little. I left it on for a few minutes and it really did stick to my already wet face. When I washed it off my face was a bit red but that went away after a few minutes. My face felt refreshed and actually a lot lighter. It was even glowing a little bit. I was happy with the results but I felt I also needed to try it in the lather. Making the lather was really easy and it went on with a whole lot less pain. It also stayed on quite well but didn't really have the same feeling as the other. As I washed it off I noticed my face wasn't red like with the other way. I didn't really have the full effects as I did when I just put the salt straight on my wet face. I guess its true when they say it may take some pain to be a beauty. Now just because the first try worked better for me doesn't mean the other way won't work better for you. Everyone is different and I really hope the lather does work better for you because the straight salt way does hurt. The end result should be the same though, a glowing face and all the dead skin gone. I really enjoyed this product and there is enough in here for me to keep enjoying it for months! When I opened it, it was overflowing and I had to make sure I was over a trash can or sink so I wouldn't get salt everywhere. Adovia is a company that puts the customer first and they really will do anything to make sure you have a positive experience no matter what. Probably my favorite company to work with. I love them and their products! If you want to check out or order this product head on over and check it out on Amazon.

Canvas Hq Giveaway

If you read my last post you already know all about the Canvas hq web site and how to order and how amazing they are. This is your chance to win your very own piece of art. They do amazing pieces and you so not want to miss the chance to win your own! Just enter below for your chance to win!!


Canvas hq

Anytime something significant happens in your life that you would like to have a reminder of you take a picture. Often times those pictures in up in a box and never get looked at for years because you have so many. Eventually you may get around to putting them into a photo album but again they just sit in the album for years without anyone paying any real attention to them. I have always wanted to be able to display my pictures in something other then frames but I didn't know how to do it and thought they were too expensive. So when I saw the Canvas Hq promotion on Tomoson I knew I had to apply. When I got approved I was so excited. I went through the picture possibilities in my head of what picture I wanted to use for my free 8 x 11 canvas art. Until I finally settled on a picture that is both a good and a bad memory. My daddy and I during the father daughter dance at my wedding. Ever since my daddy died last August I have been looking for a way to keep his memory alive so I thought that this would be a perfect oppourtunity.

It comes packaged very well and you can clearly see who it is from. When I opened it it took my breath away. Not only the picture but the quality of the product. I am not sure what I was expecting but it was made very well. The canvas is tough so you don't have to worry about getting or making any holes in it. The printing and framing was amazing. It even comes with its own hanging tool that you use and you actually hang it on it. Pretty simple instructions on that and straight forward. It was very easy to hang with very minimal wall damage/holes.

I could not be happier with the ordering process either. You simply go to www.canvashq.com and they have very clear instructions and even walk you through all the choices and everything you have to do to get your art ordered. When you are done you can even go back to the site and check to see how far along in the process it is. It does take a few days to ship but that is understandable because it is not a mass produced product it is something made just for you. After it ships though it comes very quickly.

I recommend this site to anyone looking to hang an awesome piece of art on your wall made from one of your very own memories and experiences. They are a bit pricey but what you get is worth every single penny of what you pay! If you are still on the fence about it go check out the Canvas hq facebook page and see what others have made and find out a little more about the company!

I also get to do a giveaway so someone will get to have their own picture on a canvas and have an amazing piece of art for their home! Check back for the giveaway and tell your family and friends about it! Can't wait to do this giveaway it is one of my favorites so far!

Stylophora Ice ball molds




Are you tired of drinking watered down drinks? Well I was too so I went out on a search to find something to keep the tiny ice cubes from melting so fast. While I was on my search I found a listing on Tomoson for ice ball molds. I was interested so I applied because this was after all what I had been searching for all along. A few days later I got my approval and ordered them from Amazon right away! Just go to here to check them out on Amazon they are on sale at the moment for a really good price!

Anyway back to my review...when the package came I was very happy with the packaging and the way it shipped. Everything was safe and sound inside my box. The product itself lacked a little in packaging but I like how they got right to the point with it and didn't need fancy stuff to sell their product. The balls and the funnel are both silicon or something very close to silicon which works out later on when you are popping the balls out.

The directions were easy to read and understand and were very straightforward. Always wash any new product before using it that is just common sense. But I know some people are lacking in that department so I as well as the directions felt the need to point that out. After washing I dried the outside of the molds and put them together. You then stick the funnel in the top of the first mold and fill it to the fill line indicated on the mold. Make sure your molds are securely together so that the water doesn't seep out. I have found that when you fill it all the way to the fill line it tends to come out of the top and sometimes down the side when frozen so I started to fill it just under the fill line and that seems to correct the issue. Repeat these steps for the other two balls and place on a flat surface in your freezer for 4 to  hours. When they are all done you simply grab them from the freezer and pull the top and bottom apart. Sometimes it sticks inside the top and other times it sticks inside the bottom. Whichever side it sticks to simply turn it upside down over your cup and push downward on the mold to pop it out. Then you have ice balls for your drinks.

I noticed that with regular ice cubes on a hot day they tend to melt within 30 to 45 minutes. With the ice ball molds you can enjoy your drink without them melting for an hour or two. They will start to melt but won't completely melt for that length of time which is more then enough time to enjoy a drink or two. With the slow release of water the drinks taste better and you don't get that sudden watered down drink.

I love this product. It is easy to use, make, and enjoy. We have used this product every day since I received this and we won't go back to normal ice cubes for our drink again...unless we are waiting for more balls to freeze. My only complaint is that there are only 3 molds. I really wish it came with a fourth mold. Sometimes when my husband and I go for another drink one of us has to use ice cubes in ours simply because there isn't another ball. Other then that I have no complaints about the product. It does what it claims and it does it well! I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Adovia Eye Cream


As far back as I could remember my eyes were puffy and had dark circles underneath. I figured I just wasn't getting enough sleep and that nothing would help them until I did. That was until I got to try Adovia eye cream.  This product screamed for me to use it and to remember to use it. I have a problem with remembering to do things like take my meds, eat, etc. But I never had a problem remembering to apply this. As soon as I looked in the mirror and saw the bags it was a heads up.
 Adovia is a company that I have come to know through the review site Tomoson. It is a community for bloggers to help out businesses and get their name out there so people can read about and see their products from people like you and me. Adovia is a company I respect and LOVE. They have really won me over. Normally I don't trust things from small businesses that I haven't heard much about but this company is awesome. They have great products and great customer service. I have had the pleasure to try out many of their products now and I must say they keep hitting my high expectations and they keep getting better and better. I really enjoy the formula they use to make their products with.
Now back to the Eye Cream. I love how it comes out of the container smooth and not gritty and it smoothed on nicely and quickly. There wasn't a smell that I could smell but I am losing my sniffer so that could be why. But I heard from my Hubby that all of their products are nice and smell wonderful if they even have a smell at all which is good. I never ended up streaking this on the bed or my pillow because it absorbs quickly. It will not leave you greasy or oily and it didn't make me break out either.
To me it seemed to work within a few days. I am not saying its a miracle worker but you will notice everything start to firm and soften up within a few days to a week. I was very pleased with how it came out and that I didn't need a bunch of make up to cover up the dark circles and slight sagging that I had going on. It is a very good product I absolutely love it and will and have recommended it to friends and family that I know that could benefit from it. If you have any under eye problems make sure you check out this and the other products in the Adovia line. Once you give them a try I guarantee you won't want to try anything else!
