Stainless Steel Kitchen Knife Set by Lucentee

 

The stainless steel knife set by Lucentee is incredibly sharp and colorful. I’ve used an old dull set for so long that it’s amazing how much easier and enjoyable sharp knives make cooking. Chopping is still a chore, but not one that stops me from cooking any longer; sorry Burger King. This set comes with six colorful knives and each knife comes with a matching sheath.

The knife handles are made of a lightweight plastic which make the knifes very light. The colors are fun. However, they do make the knives look like toys, so if you have kids in the house you might want to keep these up high.

If the knives ever get dull, not to worry, a knife sharpener is included with the set as well. I haven’t tried the sharpener yet. I imagine it will be awhile before I do.

Freeman c.Booth

This blog post is about a name I believe most people know and have used…Freeman. Freeman has a new bath and body line (at least it’s new to me) Freeman C.Booth, weird name, I know. I received a coupon for a free bottle of any C.Booth product from Influenster. I selected the Lemon Sugar body lotion and it smell fantastic. Citrus is one of my favorite scents and this smells like a sweet lemon. The scent is light in the bottle, and when it’s pumped out, but as soon as you start rubbing it in, hello sweet lemon!

The lotion absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy. According to the bottle This body lotion exfoliates, hydrates, nourishes, and firms. I don’t know about firming, but it definitely leaves me with nice, soft, good smelling skin.

It seems this is only available at Ulta, at least that was the only place I was able to find it here in Las Vegas. Ulta could be a dangerous place to go for lotion, just saying. I barely got out unscathed!

Gurin Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser

 

Rechargeable Water Flosser

Gurin Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser with High Capacity Water Tank

The quick and dirty deets: I hate flossing, and my gums hate it too because they bleed. Well, apparently, according to my dentist, to stop my gums from bleeding when flossing is to floss more. WHAT?! Yup! So, I am hoping this will help. So

far, I like it a lot better than flossing and it doesn’t make my gums bleed.

The Gurin Rechargeable Water Flosser works really well. It has a lot of power, even on low. The tank is a little small. If I’m trying to be really thorough I will need to fill it up twice, once for the top and again for the bottom. The motor does make noise. I don’t think it’s ridiculously loud, not much louder than a sink running water on high.

The unit is rechargeable and comes with the charging cable. The tank is very easy to remove and install, just pull down or push up. You can also fill the tank by using the top opening on the device, no need to remove anything.

A no-duh warning: You do have to keep your mouth closed while using this. If you try to watch where your aiming while using the flosser you’ll end up with water everywhere; The force will cause a back spray. This should be common sense, but I apparently have none because I tried it! That was my second attempt, which went much better than the first. That calamity is detailed down below.

The oh my heck, I’m a dork! I’m going to tell the world version (no new information, just a funny story):

I was really excited to try this flosser. It’s pretty straight forward. Water goes here, nozzle inserts there, buttons to push on the handle. Easy. I’m ready to go.

I guess I should start where all good stories start. It happened so fast….I’m not even a 100% sure how it happened, but I started up the flosser. It started making its noise, but no water came out right away, So I did what any reasonable person would do, I looked closer at the nozzle. Yup, do I even need to say it? It started shooting me in the face with water. Cold water. I screamed. This thing is not a gentle little stream of water, oh no! I had it on normal mode and that thing has some power behind it. On complete instinct, I pulled my arm away from my face. I mean that was the fastest way to get the off

ending thing away. Now the flosser is shooting water at the mirror. I screamed again and panicked.

This is one of those instances when you think back to a situation and what you could have/should have done.

  1. I should have hit the power button, or

  2. I should have pointed the dang nozzle into the sink

No, instead I opted for option 3, swing that nozzle back around to my face and put it in my mouth. Now, I’m standing there with this thing aimed at the roof of my mouth, water is running down my mirror, my wall, my face, my shirt is wet, and I look like a deer in headlights. At this point there is only one thing you can do; laugh uncontrollably. You didn’t hear me mention taking the nozzle out of my mouth, huh?! ‘Cause, I didn’t. I don’t know if I moved my head and the water shot down my throat or if I inhaled too hard, but I ended up choking! Thankfully the universe must have decided it needed to help this poor nitwit because the flosser ran out of water. So my first use with this flosser was an adventure. It almost killed me, but I survived and had a good laugh or I survived my good laugh, whichever. I also determined I need to stay away from any situations that require split second decisions.

Luxe Beauty Microfiber Hair Towel #2

 

Luxe Beauty Essentials Microfiber Hair Towel 23 x 40 Inches

If you don’t remember my review for the original Luxe Beauty Essentials Plush Microfiber Hair Towel, you can get a refresher here: http://mishmash-musings.com/2015/02/microfiber-hair-towel/

It’s BAAACK. Bigger and better! Okay, it’s the same, it’s just bigger, which makes it better for me. With the original towel, I had a little overhang of hair sneaking out the bottom. It’s just like wrapping up in a towel only to have your butt exposed. OK, not that bad, but the visual made me giggle.

This new bigger towel is still as soft as a baby’s bum and sucks the moisture from your hair like, there’s so many ways I can go with this, like a dehydrated man after a 10 mile hike through the desert with no water. That’s thirsty folks, that’s thirsty!

Overall, I’m still loving my original towel. I’ve been using it to dry my hair after every wash for the last six months and it’s looks as new as the first day I got it. I’m glad to add this new bigger towel to the rotation.

Ubercords 1-Foot Power Extension Cord Cable

 Ubercords

Ubercords 1-Foot Power Extension Cord Cable

What it is:

The greatest invention since the personal computer.

What it does:

Saves sanity! Okay, a little overly dramatic, but not by much.

Price:

The current price for a pack of Ubercords 1-Foot Power Extension Cords, as of this writing, is:

1-pack (1-cord) $6.00
5-Pack $13.00
10- Pack $19.00

Obviously the savings is with the 10-pack. However, I only purchased the 5-pack.

My Experience/Review:

I don’t know about you, but my outlet situation is a thorn in my side. There’s never enough outlets, so I have surge protectors or extension cords, or surge protectors and extensions cords on almost every outlet in my place. And it never fails, I always have at least one of those huge adapters that need to take up two socket spaces, WHY!? One of the ways I’ve gotten around the huge adapter problem previously, was using an extension cord, but that just adds six unnecessary feet of cord. I have enough cords!

Enter the 1-foot extension cord cable (jump cable). Why? Why have I not known about this, or why has it taken this long to invent…WHY? This is one of those, storm clouds parting to allow an ethereal beam of light to shine through on to my new 1-foot jump cable. I may have whispered sweet-nothings to it before I plugged it in. Okay. I did! Then I purchased the five pack. Oh yeah, it’s good!

I've Been Carded!

I've Been Carded!

I’ve Been Carded! Black Soap Facial Wash

What it is:

Black Soap Facial Treatment, which is just a fancy way of saying African Black Soap in a jar. ๐Ÿ™‚

What it does (According to the brand):

Rewind the clock with this youth-renewing black soap facial treatment. Made with powerful African ingredients, this natural treatment deeply nourishes each pore, leaving you soft, toned, and fresh. African black soap is bursting with antioxidants that protect the skin from free radical damage. It helps to even out and fade age spots and discoloration. Rich in Vitamins A and E, and pure African shea butter, all working together to soften and smooth your skin. Also includes African coffee which exfoliates your skin while the antioxidants in coffee help to cleanse and nourish. 

Ingredients:

African Black Soap, Shea Butter, African Coffee, Fragrance

Let’s give those senses a whirl (how does it look/feel/smell):

It smells like old lemons that have gone bad. Not a horribly bad smell, but not good (in my opinion). It looks like tar and mud had a baby and stuffed it into a jar, and it feels like wax.

Price:

The current price for a 2 ounce jar of I’ve Been Carded! Black Soap Facial Wash, as of this writing, is $15.90.

My Experience/Review:

I know you wouldn’t think I loved this stuff from my description, but I really do. You only have to use a small amount for your entire face. It is thick, it’s not your usual face wash. Well, it’s not my usual face wash. I don’t know what you use.

I use African black soap, in bar form, for my body and I love it. But, I don’t like using it on my face because bar soap really doesn’t seem clean to me. I’ve tried buying a bar just for my face, but I end up forgetting and using it on my body, DOH! So, I was really excited to try this product. I even agreed to make a video to get accepted to this campaign, that’s how bad I wanted to try this. Even though the video was painful. I did it and it was worth it! 

This black soap is the bomb. I love it! It makes my face feel clean without over drying. It brightened up my face and made my skin feel so soft. Even my young (20) daughter commented on how soft her face felt.

I’ve Been Carded! No, no I haven’t, but I like it anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚

Liberty Tabletop Flatware

 

Liberty Tabletop Flatware

 

HERITAGE COLLECTION – CHAMPLIN

I received this beautiful, 18-10 stainless steel, flatware sample from Liberty Tabletop. They’re a heavy duty set; no bending spoons in your ice cream here.

Liberty Tabletop currently has four flatware categories:

โ–บ LUX
โ–บ HERITIAGE
โ–บ SHERRILL HOME
โ–บ SMI

Each category carries several different styles in a variety of price ranges. You can check out the different options here: https://libertytabletop.com/shop-flatware/

The fantastic thing about this company is they’re located and manufacture they’re products right here in the U.S of A (Central New York) and they practice Eco-friendly manufacturing to boot. According to Liberty Tabletop, they are the only flatware manufacturer in the U.S.

Taking care of the environment, while keeping quality high, and the jobs local. They might just have a phone booth and cape hiding somewhere.

A little 411 from the Liberty website: How is stainless steel made? It is almost always manufactured by melting scrap metal, mainly similar grade stainless steel scrap. The alloying metals that make the grade of stainless steel, such as nickel and chromium, are added to the molten melt and carefully measured with sophisticated equipment to make sure the percentage is correct. Steel used at Sherrill Manufacturing is eight to 10 percent nickel and 16 to 18 percent chromium. At the same time, alloying metals are measured to ensure that the grade meets all specifications measurements of other elements there are no trace elements that arenโ€™t a part of the recipe.

Huh? I don’t know, it sounded impressive. What’s also impressive is where they get the steel for their products…U.S Steel mills. They still have them? Apparently.  The learning just keeps happening!

SIDE NOTE: I think I will take all my pictures via flatware, it’s so thinning!
