Product Review: Sound Intone CX-05 Headphones

Sound Intone CX-05 Headphones come in a sturdy box that can also be used as storage when you’re not using them. It’s a thicker cardboard and it hasn’t been damaged in my house yet which is a miracle. Lol

These are over the ear headphones rather than earbuds. I honestly like these better than earbuds. My ears don’t get irritated after just a few minutes wearing them. I like to listen to music while mowing the lawn and these almost completely drown out the lawnmower BEFORE the music even starts. When I have my music on, there’s just a faint humming I can hear from the mower.

They are HEAVY headphones and are well-built. I would have no qualms about letting my 5 year old use and wear these without supervision. I don’t think she could do anything to them to make them quick working short of throwing them in the pool or water! They ARE corded headphones and not wireless which I like. I don’t have to pay attention to the battery indicator and recharge these. They are ready to go at a moments notice. The nice thing is that the cord unplugs from the end of the headphones allowing for them to not only remain undamaged but to also fold smaller.

The design is nice. Black fabric with a white diamond pattern. On the inside of each ear piece is an L for left and R for right. I haven’t noticed a difference about wearing them backwards. It sounds fine either way you wear them. Just depends on which side you want the cord on honestly. The cord plugs into the bottom of the piece marked L.

These sell for $27.98 on Amazon. I have seen some pairs be cheaper but the ratings didn’t look well for them. I’ve also seen ones that are more expensive. I would honestly buy these instead of buds because you don’t have to charge them and don’t have a limited battery supply.

They do have a microphone in them so you can use them as an earpiece for gaming systems or even on your phone. No need to switch between multiple items! The only thing I would have liked would have been a volume changer right there on the headphones rather than having to do it from my phone or tablet. Other than that, no complaints.

Product Review: Chic 3 pack Women’s Socks with Pandas

20160602_223424These socks are really cute. I love pandas so when I got the chance to review these, I jumped on it! They are really soft and stretchy so they are one size fits most. I can wear anywhere from a size 5 in shoes to a 7 1/2 depending on brand and style. These socks fit me great and I love the hint of snugness they have once on.

Each sock is two-toned in color. Technically 4 toned if you add the black and white to the main sock colors. >.< Bells & Whistles, which is the seller, has 8 different color combinations/styles available on this one listing on Amazon.20160602_223028

All three of the pairs of socks I received have random threads that are sticking out from random spots. It’s okay for me though. I just snip it off with a pair of scissors and back to normal. 20160602_222940

A 3 pack of socks is $7.99 on Amazon. While I received my pack of socks free, I would gladly pay the $7.99 for another set. They are a cotton/spandex blend and I feel they are softer and cuter than other socks I have bought in the store. The little lace at the top is a good addition to make it look a little “fancy” if you’re wearing shorts/capris with these socks and people can see them.

Honestly, if I didn’t hate the way socks look with sandals, I would wear these while wearing sandals. And I HATE wearing socks and shoes. Until I got these, I would rather just put my shoes on without socks and deal with the insole sticking to the bottom of my foot rather than wear socks. That’s how comfortable these are!!

The only difference I would make is to make sure each pack of socks has the different colors like it says since they’re supposed to be three different colors. Other than that I wouldn’t make any changes to these.

Product Review: YJH Crystal 10mm Healing Stone Handmade Adjustable Round Reiki Bead Beaded Bracelet

IMG_20160215_192028106

This is an Amethyst Reiki beaded adjustable bracelet. It is adjustable to a certain extent. There are 17 beads on the bracelet plus the two at the ends of the ties. For me personally, it would fit better if it had one or two less beads on it but like states, that’s just me. Even pulling it as tight as possible, it’s still a little loose. I have noticed that unless I tie the ends, the bracelet does loosen. ( I almost lost it at the store one day!)

Each bead is very smooth and unique in its own way. This particular shade of Amethyst is closest to a grape color rather than the light purples you normally see with Amethyst. Overall a cute bracelet. If you’re thinking of this for a child, I would go for something else. It is definitely sized for an adult.

These bracelets are $12.99 with Amazon Prime. There are a variety of other bracelets available as well. I hope to one day eventually have all of them! With each bead being hand carved and smoothed, I would say that $12.99 is definitely a good price point. I have seen similar bracelets for sale before, both online and in stores, and they were WAY higher than what this company is selling them for. (And none of them mentioned anything about being hand carved and smoothed.)

Some information about Amethyst:

  • Amethyst is a calming stone bringing calm, balance, peace and patience to the wearer.
  • It is said that Amethyst is also a protection stone and protects one from thieves and while traveling.
  • Used in a crystal healing setting, it helps with grieving a loss and helping to move on.
  • Known from ancient times, it is well known as a sobriety stone. It helps to curb addictions to smoking, alcohol, drugs and destructive behaviors.
  • If worn to where it is touching the skin, it helps with a myriad of health issues including but not limited too: headaches/migraines, pain, PMS symptoms, insomnia, fibromyalgia and immune disorders. (There are a lot more health issues it helps with. This is just what I listed.) (While I was wearing this, I did noticed a decrease in migraines and pain.)

Product Review: NIPOO Elastic Hair Ties (48 pcs)

5/5 🌟

These hair ties are like ones I used to use when I was a little girl. They are soft and stretchy. Unlike the Ouchless! hair ties, these don’t seem to pull your hair or break it. They also don’t slip out of my daughters hair and get lost forever. Since my daughter and I have both started using these, I haven’t noticed any hair breakage or hair wrapped around the hair ties when I take them out at night. My daughter is also not complaining about it pulling her hair.

Other than the black, brown and maroon, the colors are bright and vibrant. A great way to add a little POP of color to any outfit. Colors include: black, brown, maroon, red, purple, blue, light brown, lime green, pink, hot pink and yellow. There are 48 hair ties that come in this pack, a nice variety of colors. They are textured and not smooth which I believe helps hold them in place instead of slipping.

I would say that these are worth the $6.99 on Amazon.

***Please note that not all packs will be the same. Just because I got a good amount of each color, doesn’t mean that you won’t get more of some and less of others.

Product Review: Garcinia Cambogia 80% HCA Extract

garcinia

I received this product free in exchange for an honest review!

—————————————————-

health ambition garcinia

Let’s get a little background on garcinia cambogia before I let you know how I liked this product and what concerns me.

1. Garcinia Cambogia is known as a few other things as well: HCA, Brindle Berry and Malabar Tamarind to name a few.

2. Garcinia is actually a fruit and the rind of said fruit is used to help make medicines.

3. There are many products out there claiming to be pure garcinia when in fact there is NO garcinia in it at all.

4. This should NOT be taken for more than 12 weeks at a time. Garcinia CAN cause damage to the liver and other areas.

5. Please talk to your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. I’ve read a lot on garcinia and there isn’t enough information out there on if it is safe enough to take.

6. Garcinia cambogia can help you lose weight and suppress your appetite.

7. ONLY TAKE A PRODUCT IF IT IS FDA APPROVED!

—————————–

Like I stated above, I received this product free in exchange for an honest review. I consulted with my doctor before taking this version of garcinia like I did with the previous one. Again, she warned of taking it only for a short period of time if I did take it and she also warned not to take medicines not approved by the FDA. While this product isn’t approved by the FDA, I did go ahead and take it for a week or so. I’m not sure if it was something in the pill or what I was eating but I had to quit taking it. I was feeling really off and not quite myself. I did notice that once I quit taking it, I felt better almost immediately. That’s not to say that this is a bad product but that it didn’t agree with me.

I did notice that while I was taking it, I didn’t feel as hungry as before. I found myself eating less at each meal and even skipping snacks throughout the day because I just wasn’t hungry. While I personally haven’t seen any weight lost, that doesn’t mean that others haven’t. Again, this is just based on me and my outcomes and opinions.

This bottle comes with 180 capsules which is a 45 day supply if you take it the way the bottle suggests, 2 capsules twice daily. I was taking it two pills once a day instead of twice a day.
