Jaylie TM Mini Assorted Color Nail Files (50 Pack) Review

Overall, it's a nice set. I like to do my nails twice a week- filing just once a week. These will last me a year versus a regular size file that lasts about 3 to 4 months.

Positives: Small enough to work the sides of the nails, compact files for easy filing, inexpensive for 50 total, Great for favors or if you want to use a clean file each manicure. Worked really nice in filing back all my nails and rounding them- 1 file per manicure.
Negatives: These are basically a 1 time use per file if you file all your nails in one shot.

**received a slight discount for review purposes**

"What Night?" Funny Wine Glass Review

This glass is adorable. I’ve received and given out wine glass gifts that come in different painted themes but this one is funny, great size for wine & is simple. It’s great for bachelorette parties, bridal showers & birthday gifts. The glass is strong, it comes wrapped very securely & the wording is very clear. Great gift idea! A good night is about 4oz, a great night is 8oz and what night is about 10-11oz.

Natural Peel Off Nail Polish Review

My daughter LOVED being able to paint her own nails. I loved letting her do it without worrying about chemicals or nail polish everywhere. She tried Royal Princess and she sure felt royal. The nail polish lasted about 3 to 4 days (she’s 4 years old) and came off in the bathtub after sitting for a while. The average time is supposed to be 5 days (up to 30 days on toenails) which could apply for older children. Lily Mae just needed 1 coat and it dried pretty quickly. NO SMELL!

I highly reccomend them. Below are all the links to check out Play Love Laugh for yourself!

Cordless Electric Can Opener - Smooth Edge Review + Giveaway

I use the can opener the most when cooking Chili. I’m opening cans of crushed tomatoes, variety of beans and usually a can of corn. While opening these can’s, I’m also sautéing onions, peppers and cooking ground beef. This product allows me to essentially open a can AND do something else at the exact same time which is awesome as a mom of two toddlers. Just a few seconds (my video below is a bit longer but wanted to get the idea of how it works) and a can is opened and ready to go. Super easy to use, in the video this was the first time using it so I didn’t know what to expect. You can get your own Kitchen Palz Automatic Can Opener by entering my giveaway below. Retail value- $39.99. Enter today!!

Product Site Description:
•Don't ever stress about opening a can again! This automatic can opener is the perfect tool. It opens most cans of all sizes and shapes effortlessly, at the touch of a button. Simply position it on the can, press the button to start and let it complete a full rotation on the can. Then press to stop, and that is it! See note in desc.
•This KitchenPalz opener is perfect for hands that don't work as well as they used to. If you have arthritis, hand pain, stiff fingers, then no worries. Hand strength is not needed to use this opener.
•It cuts incredibly neatly from the side resulting in a safe, smooth edge. The edge is so smooth, you could run a balloon on it and it would not pop readily. AND it creates a smooth replaceable lid, so you can cover up back your can contents. As a little perk, the smooth lids could be quite useful for the crafty person.

Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron Review

I really liked the XTAVA Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron. I really liked this curler as it works like a regular curling iron with clamping on the hair BUT doesn’t kill my wrist by the end (30 to 40 times of wrapping my hair around the barrel can kill your wrists). Once you clamp the hair, pull it to the end, you just press the forward/backward button and it rolls it up. Hold it for 10 seconds like you would with any curling iron and release. It’s simple and takes a little of the pain of curling your hair.

To test the product, I straightened half my hair with a round brush and the other half essentially air dry. I think curled both sides the exact same way. Both sides came out amazing! Picture below.

Pros: Easy to use, heats up quick, allows you to change the temperature, clips hair & rolls up automatically, decent price
Cons: The handle for clamping your hair is pretty short. It took a few times to get used to it.

You can purchase this product here Also found on amazon here.

Product Site Description:
•AUTO ROTATING CERAMIC TOURMALINE BARREL The Xtava auto-rotating curling iron features an innovative automated bi-directional rotating control for maximum ease and comfort. Simply clip the hair on the barrel and let xtava do the rest with the touch of button, the ceramic tourmaline barrel generates constant and even heat creating long lasting perfect curls.
•HEAT CONTROL The Xtava auto-rotating curling iron features accurate heat control with 11 temperature stages between 210F-430F allowing styling versatility for all hair types. For fine hair, use low temperature for best results. Thick and wavy hair will require a higher temperature. The LCD display will ensure simple, accurate and convenient operation.
•360 SWIVEL 8 FT. CORD With the Xtava Silk edition you will not need any extension cord or a nearby outlet thanks to its 8 ft. long power cord. Avoid getting your cable entangled while styling your hair, with the integrated 360 degree swivel system that will simply rotate as you work.
•SHUT-OFF FUNCTION Incorporates a convenient auto-shutoff function that will turn off the device when left unattended - never worry again after rushing out.
•TRAVEL FRIENDLY Universal dual Voltage that can adapt to your travel schedule and ensure you look just as perfect on the road as at home.

Sun'n'Fun Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen for Kids Review

Chocolate scented suntan lotion…? Yes, you read it. I’ve never seen any other scent of lotion but the normal coconut scented. We go through lots of lotion in my family as my husband is Irish and will burn just looking outside at the sun. lol. My children aren’t as fair but still don’t chance it.

The lotion is tinted a bit but doesn’t seem to tint the skin. There wasn’t any greasy feel to it, rubd in very easy and left my skin soft. Picture below shows the lotion, half rubbed in and then fully rubbed in. I loved that this was a lotion instead of a spray.
