iscream Review

Thanks to iscream for providing me with the product/products below to review with no purchase.

I received 3 different things from iscream to review. I got all these things pretty fast and was glad for that cause my niece only comes over maybe once every couple months and it fell great cause she was here. She is always wanting to write notes on the fridge but of course everyone knows notes take up room and constantly building up trash, which is also bad for the environment and killing trees so why not try to conserve that and use a dry erase board. This is not just any dry erase board though but she loves pink and loves gummy bears and she wants to write on this even more than she did with notes so now she is more likely to write she is walkin to a neighbors house when her moms not home just so she can write on it. It wipes clean so easy and read to go again. She also is a money saver which is unusual for her age but she loves to save up for stuff so why not have her own little bank and she gets to enjoy the suckers until its empty and time to put change in it. She also loved the very colorful shoelaces that made her shoes look funky and cute. All in all no issues with any of the items I received she loved them so because that I loved them. they also have alot of cute inexpensive things at iscream for the teenage girl in your life so check them out.











Gummy Bear Dry Erase Board - $7.50


Dum Dums Candy-Filled Bank - $8.75


Dums Dums Patchwork Shoelaces - $3.75

Veil Tattoo Cover Review

Thanks to Veil for providing me with the product/products below to review with no purchase.

I received the Tattoo Camouflage Kit Light to Medium from Veil to review. I got this fast and couldn't wait to give it a try. I have 2 tattoos and one I'm proud of I got when I was 18 but the other is a 16 year old mistake I got hand done by my sister just to prove to my mom I could get a tattoo before I was 18 even if she said I couldn't cause it was my body kinda rebellious mess I did. Sadly I hate that tattoo and hate how it looks glad its covered with shirts for the most part but because of it I don't wear sleeveless shirts which I wish I could more out in public so couldn't wait to see what this could do for me. I want to address upfront wish there was more explanatory what the other colors were for cause the green blew my mind why anyone would ever need that but anyways I put this on my tattoo and then took a pic granted would have been easier if they sent me the full kit to do the review right cause i didn't have a brush to use like it tells you to use. So I put the first coat on and wanted to show that it almost fully covered it just with that and I love that it works so well especially with just one coat. I do like this product and also see how they have stuff to cover for acne and such as well as well as other blemishes. Kinda wish they had asked me my skin tone bein I'm Indian the medium to dark kit would have probably worked better for me but I had to make the best  of what they sent me. I do believe if you get the right color palette this could work great in every way. It doesn't come off on my clothes after using the finishing powder which is what I was afraid it might have done. I was gonna try to see if it would cover my dark marks on my face but sadly none of these colors match my skin tone their so couldn't review it in that term. The worst thing was tryin to take this off though it don't come off too easy after scrubbing till my arm hurt and was red just to get it off with lots of soap. I have to say gettin it off my face hurt even more when I tried that so not sure I would do this daily at all for any of my discolorations or tattoos but I do like the option to cover my tats with this great product from Veil. I do recommend it just know that it don't come off easy yet guess that's what you want so it stays on for awhile too even it seems to in water.









Tattoo Camouflage Kit Light to Medium - £28.00

Marzetti's Girard's Salad Dressing Review

Thanks to Girards for providing me with the product/products below to review with no purchase.

I received a full package from Girards to review. I had the chance me and my family trying their great salad dressings before so I was so happy to work with them again. My husband loves these dressings more than anyone else though he likes to put it on anything. I love how this package came with 4 salad dressings, salad utensils, some recipe cards and a apron. All this stuff will come in handy for reusing over and over again but Joe used it the day we got the stuff in. He couldn't wait to savor these dressings again and again. These were all very good flavors and actually could be used on just about anything if you wanted to, he sure did. All the stuff that came in the package is greatly made like I didn't get splinters in my hand or anything from the spoons and such. The apron fits Joe pretty good which I was surprised most are usually made for women more. I wish we sold these in our stores at least the ones we go to cause they are worth buying and we recommend them for that reason. If you have these in your stores give it a shot try a flavor its amazing the taste from them. Also you could just wait and see if you win but if I was out and i had a store near me I would run out and buy some more Girards dressings right now lol :) hope you do.

Just so you know I wrote that review back when I first got it cause of course alot has changed since then but its a honest review only issue is they never contacted me back about the giveaway or replied to any of my emails to post this so I thought I'd still let everyone know what i received and what me and my family thought when we first tried it....





                  sorry had to include my kitty Libby who wanted in the pic too so freakin funny!

Pictures On Gold Review

Thanks to Pictures on Gold for providing me with the product/products below to review with no purchase.

I received the Photo Engraved Dog Tag Photo Pendant Jewelry Necklace from Pictures On Gold to review. Where do I start well this is a company I have spent more time waiting for than getting the best from since May this year. The issues started with the Public Relations department and extends to customer service. Starting with the PR I contacted them and they asked what I wanted engraved on it. This was for a family member for christmas and yet I spent the whole year dealing with their mess sure ain't happy. If I was a customer of theirs well I would have done turned them over to BBB for sure. I sent them plain as day what I wanted engraved highlighted in red yet for some reason I got only half of it cause she said she just over looked it. Now if this was a customer issue I would think they would fix it so first I'm told to return it and they wanted me to pay for it yeah not gonna happen and I'm sure most would agree their fault so they pay for it. She then said she would fix it and have the company send me another out now keep in mind this is not a cheap item so no reason their should be issues with this kinda stuff. I emailed her like a total of 6 times from May to September tryin to get it fixed yet got no answer other than 2 times where she said she would get right on it. They can't say its a christmas thing when come on that was May and they had most the year to fix this issue. Now not gonna lie their quality is excellent I don't know if you can see the beauty in the pictures but the quality is really great and the engraving looks great as well but their company needs to learn to fix their own mess ups a little better.

Then I contacted a couple weeks back the customer service cause seriously I got tired of dealin with the PR that does nothing and I wanna show the chat below how it went down. I wish their chat showed time frames but yes I contacted them on cyber monday but they might wanna hire more people cause it seems this one guy is the only one who answers the phone every time you call as well as answers every time on chat online. It took me forever to get responses and then when I called the guy to chat on the phone later in the evening he was so occupied by everything else I don't even think he paid much attention to me as well nor did he seemed he cared that much. I'm sorry but from a business owners point of view if I thought there was a chance that someone would talk bad about my company I would do my best to make it a better experience for me instead he kept puttin me on hold and only spent maybe 4 minutes talkin to me once I called. Seriously their customer service is horrible and if you chance to buy from them I hope you never need help. Another thing amazed me the guy I talked to online was the same guy I talked to on the phone yet he changed his name..... Really sounds strange but I swear it floored me I guess to make you think their is more that work at this company than 2 people which so far is what I see. I finally gave up on this company cause the man I talked to said he would contact her about it and I then tried to email her one more time and never got a answer this company has truly got to the top of my worst list for this year and its sad cause I thought this company had potential to be somethin great, boy was I wrong. Do I recommend Pictures On Gold the answer is NO!

 Here is chat log the first time (visitor is me)

Updates For The End Of The Year & Future

This year is coming to a close and I have been super busy with Christmas right around the corner so I'm sure everyone has noticed I haven't posted regularly but this is a hectic time for most as well as me. This is the first year I have been seperated from my husband and for the first time in my life I'm happy with my life and how its goin. As for ya'll know I changed my blog up this year with bad reviews as well as good letting all of ya'll know the good and bad with each thing I come across whether the companies like my ideas or not. Nothin has changed although I had a few companies that never responded to me so those reviews will be done anyways whether or why they want to talk to me anymore due to they sent me the items so there will be upcoming honest reviews. I'm also gonna make a list of favorite companies as well as least favorites coming up as well for the end of this year. Hoping for a better year in 2013 know upfront I'm goin back to school for my GED in mid January so with that bein said I will be busier than usual but gonna try to put in as much time as I can here as well. I got alot planned for 2013 hoping to get enough money together to move out of my state, as well as be able to go to college for graphic design and get a good career in that I know its somethin that will take a while but I have been givin a new start with my life and I won't waste another minute without living life the way I want. The song below so fits how I feel these days.. Enjoy!

Dive Lights Direct Tovatec Sport Zoom Review

Thanks to Dive Lights Direct for providing me with the product/products below to review with no purchase.

I received the Tovatec Sport Zoom from Dive Lights Direct  to review. I got this pretty fast in the mail and thought this was such a cool idea its like one flash light in one with bein able to have long distance as well as wide view in light. This little flash light is super bright and can light up any area very well. I love with just a click you can change the area thats lit up with a bigger beam and smaller as well. Its not real hard to click to change yet its not super easy either so it won't switch without you tryin. I used this for a couple days and there were good with bad with this little flashlight. First if you hold the flash light without gloves on and use it for awhile it starts gettin pretty warm fast not super hot but you can still feel it. Its more of a nu-sense than a bad thing it wouldn't keep me from buyin it though. Another thing is not sure if its the batteries that come with it or not cause I didn't have more of the size batteries it uses to see but so far from what i seen the batteries don't last long at all maybe cause of the power of the light I don't know cause I know its brighter than any flash light I have seen besides LED lights.

Although they sell many other lights on their site Dive Lights Direct has some pretty nice lights that aren't really pricey although I found for the few issues I had really not worth the $50 they want. If you want just a storm flash light to have in case of an emergency this is great for that but I wouldn't use it for like goin out camping or something. It is waterproof though which is a great feature to have in any flash light. It does promise to have bright, dim, emergency strobe and SOS signal settings but I only saw bright and thats it with bein able to switch it to bigger area to small thats it. It would make a great defense item though with the aluminum construction make it easy to hit someone and knock them out for sure. Its small to carry in a purse but not sure I really recommend this flash light depending on what the use is for.
