#1 Rated Travel Towel Microfiber by Shandali


Wow, fall has came early to Ohio!  It has been in the 60's here all week.  That is cray-cray for the month of July!  But, I am not complaining, not one little bit.  After leaving behind temperatures of over 100 in Ecuador, this cool weather is a welcomed blessing!  

As I blogged earlier, in certain areas of Ecuador I sweat non stop.  I was so glad that I had been wise enough to take along my Travel Towel.  This towel never left me.  Have towel, will travel!  And, because it is microfiber it dried very fast and had no mildew smell.
Another plus is; it is so light and can be folded up quite small  one is not incumbered by carrying it.  

I even took it to the beach with me, and because there are no loops in the material, sand did not get stuck to the towel.  With regular beach towels, one has to do a whole lotta' shakin' to get the sand out of it.

This towel also has a loop (see picture) sewn on it, so that is really handy for being able to hang it up, just able anywhere.

Because it is so absorbent, it also makes a nice towel for drying ones hair.  I use it quite often to dry off all over after showering.  It works great!  And, takes up so much less space in the laundry.  And, also way, way, way less space in ones linen closet.

These towels would be great for campers, hikers, those that work outside in hot temperatures.  This would even make a great towel for drying off an infant.  I just can't think of anyone that wouldn't get a lot of use from this towel.  It comes in two sizes, I have it in medium.  I hope to have more of them!  I love them that much.

This Microfiber Travel Towel may be purchased at Amazon.

Rainbow Joy! #rainbowrefill


How are ya'll doin?  I saw a quote the other day that pretty much sums up how I feel. "I am not in competition with anyone, I hope we all win"!   Some days, just being able to get out of bed in the morning, I think.. WINNER!!  Bahahaha!!

I really did feel like I hit the jackpot when I opened up the box from Amazon to find  5,400.. yes... you read that right... 5,400  brightly colored rubber bandz and clips from Rainbow Bandz! 
The colors included are Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink, Purple, Orange, Black and White.  

Each color comes individually bagged, and believe me you will want to just start tearin' open those bags and start making bracelets, but...Take a breath and Calm Down.  Ha!  You'll still have time to make stuff after you have organized the colors in the Rainbow Bandz Organization Box that you were keen enough to think ahead and order.  :)  Oh, and while you are at it, you will also want to order the Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit.  So, now you are all set!  Start up that loom!  

Now, of course if you already have another kind of loom, these bands will work with it as well.  I'm just sayin, if one is a "newbie" these are all products I have reviewed, and found them to be high quality.

One may purchase Rainbow Bandz Loom Refill Pack 
 at Amazon.



I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Italian 1 Language Learning Course Review #pimsleuritalian

 Hi,hi!  Ciao,ciao!

 I hope today finds you well and happy!  I gotta be honest and tell ya I'm a little out of sorts today, as one of my grandchildren isn't feeling well, and I'm sure many of you can relate to that!  If one of my chicks isn't well, it sends me into a tail-spin until they are recovered, and then all is right in my world again!

What I am reviewing for you today, can open up a whole new world for ya!  It is the Pimsleur Italian Language Learning Course.
I was really happy to review this, as going to Italy is on our "to do" list, and after my trip to South America, I can tell ya, there are just some words you need to know in the country you are traveling in.

This course comes on CD's that one listens to every day for about 1 hour.  It is designed to feel like one is actually having a conversation with another person, as you verbally repeat back what is said to you.  It is also designed in such a way as to trigger your memory to recall the words you learned.  It really is exciting to see how much you retain.  Of course, one listens to the CD as many times as necessary to learn all the words offered on that CD.

I also used Pimsleur Spanish before going to Ecuador.  I feel Pimsleur is a great way to learn another language.  

If you or someone you know is taking a foreign language class in school, I would suggest you also purchase the Pimsleur Learning Course to aid in the learning process, they offer many languages.  All available through Amazon.

One may purchase Pimsleur Italian Level 1 Learning Course on Amazon.

Adovia Exfoliating Facial Sea Salts- Dead Sea Salt Exfoliating Crystals Review #adovia



I have officially been home 1 week, and I am sorta, kinda starting to feel settled back in, although... I still have some laundry to do.  Blah!  I have been catching up on my sleep, so I haven't needed many clothes anyway.  Ha!

However, there are just some things one cannot put on hold and that is ones skin care.  No matter how tired I am, I still do some type of skin care, even if it is just using a cleansing wipe.

This week I had a chance to try out Adovia Exfoliating Crystals.  As with other Adovia products I have reviewed, this is Sea Salts from the Dead Sea.  When I opened the jar, it looked so much like finely milled salt, I was tempted to taste it.  :)

This product is designed for people with oily skin.  I just scooped a little out with a small plastic spoon onto a wet sponge and worked it in gentle circles around my face.  

If one does not have oily skin, they can mix the crystals with a little olive oil and use the exfoliate that way.

After I removed the dead skin cells, I used Adovia Serum to moisturize my face and neck.

My face feels smooth and has a healthy look to it.  Exfoliates remove the dead skin layer which brightens up ones face.  

I use several Adovia skin care products and think they are just awesome.

One may purchase Adovia Exfoliating Crystals at Amazon.
