Oleavine Therapeutic Foot Soak Review

This All Natural Therapeutic Foot Soak brings relief for your feet. A nice little soak helps soothe tired, itchy, and sore feet. It also helps wash away fungus and odor caused by bacteria. It a nice strong minty scent. It smells really clean and refreshing. It comes in a 16 oz resealable bag.

A little bit goes a long way but you can adjust the amount as desired. You want to use warm water and let your feet soak a good 15-20 mins. I loved the minty scent. My feet felt so nice afterwards. They were soft and had a bit of a nice clean tingle to them. They felt so good for quite some time after my soak. My husband also used it. He is on his feet all day so a nice soak with this really felt good for his feet.

You can find Oleavine Therapeutic Foot Soak on Amazon and on the Oleavine website. Be good to your feet and give them a nice relaxing soak!

Beardsmen Spirit Fragrance Free Beard Oil Review

Beardsmen Spirit Fragrance Free Beard Oil will help soften and smooth your beard. It is fragrance free so it's perfect for those with sensitive skin. It's non-greasy and will keep your beard tangle free. It can also help keep your beard from itching. It's made with 100% natural ingredients including: Apricot Kernel Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, and Castor oil. It's made in the USA and is also not tested on animals.

Our oldest son has been experimenting with growing a beard on and off so I let him test this out. He previously had used a scented version from this company and liked it so I was curious what he thought of this one. He did like the idea that this one didn't have any scent to it. He said sometimes it's nice to not smell like anything. :)  He said it kept the hair soft and shiny. Now he doesn't have a super thick and long beard but he knows that good grooming is important.

This bottle is 4 oz so it should last quite some time. Not a lot is needed to keep your beard looking and feeling its best. You can find Beardsmen Spirit Fragrance Free Beard Oil on Amazon.

Deluxe Bamboo Bath Caddy Review

When the weather turns cold I love a good soak in the tub. I try to find time once a week to sneak in a little soak. It's so relaxing! Sometimes it's the only way for me to get warm enough in winter. I like to use nice smelling bath salts, I take in something to read and usually a glass of ice water so I don't get too hot.

Now you know how hard it is to keep your book or magazine from getting wet. I usually have to sit it on the floor then reach for it. I also keep my glass on the side of the tub and have to be careful not to bump it and tip it over. I don't really want ice in my nice warm bath! This Bamboo Bath Caddy from ToiletTree Products solves all my bath woes.

It has expandable sides so it will fit any bathtub size. It has a book support to hold my reading material, a built in soap holder (which could be used to hold a phone but I refuse to take mine in the tub), and a slide in glass holder for stemware. The bath caddy is made from 100% natural eco-friendly bamboo with chrome accents.

Beautiful eco-friendly bamboo.

This would make for a great gift for the upcoming holiday season. You'd be giving the wonderful gift of "me" time! You could even pair it with a candle, a book, and a beautiful piece of stemware and you'd make someone very happy! 

You can find this Bamboo Bath Caddy at AmazonBrookstone, and ToiletTree Products.

Tacos: Recipes and Provocations - Book Review

I love tacos! I could eat them everyday for the rest of my life. They are easy to make. You just need tortillas and then you can just toss in whatever you have on hand. I make a variety at home using beef, chicken, turkey, venison, fish, or shrimp. When we smoke a turkey or brisket we love using leftovers for tacos.

So, I was excited when I saw this new cookbook called Tacos. I thought awesome! I can't wait to devour it and discover some new ideas. Well, I am a bit disappointed. It is way too fancy for me. There are lots of new ideas in it but nothing really that my family would enjoy.

I do have to say it does have a nice section on making tortillas and salsas. I had never heard of beet tortillas or even thought to make yuca tortillas. The main section of the book is all different sorts of tacos. Many of the ingredients I know I would have a hard time finding in my area or even know that I couldn't afford them. I mean Sea Urchin Guacamole Tacos and Lamb Tartare Tacos are a bit out of my league.

The photos in the book are beautiful. I did learn a bit reading through the book but don't really see myself making anything from it other than maybe experimenting a bit with my homemade tortillas. This book may be for you if you are really into a bit more of the sophisticated taco I think.

Dual Speed Milk Frother Review

This Milk Frother from LaGondola helps you make your own beautiful foam at home! It creates smooth and delicate foam in just seconds with it's dual speed motor. You can enjoy your lattes, cappuccinos, and more at home with this handy little gadget.

It is nice and light and fits nicely in my hand. It is pretty quiet too. I also like that you just slide the button to either high or low speed and you don't have to hold it down to keep it going. It does require 2 AA batteries which are not included.

The LaGondola Milk Frother is easy to clean. You just dip the whisk into hot soapy water and turn it on, then rinse, and spin again to dry it. You do not want to submerge the entire thing in water or put it in the dishwasher.

You can also use this handy little tool to whisk eggs, sauces, and dressings. My boys have enjoyed making a little foam for their mugs of hot chocolate. It stands up nicely on one end so you can keep it out on your counter if you like.

You can find the LaGondola Milk Frother on Amazon.
