Green Air Serene Living Amber Glass review




New GreenAir sent me this beautiful Serene living Glass egg diffuser. I have a few different styles in my house and this thing is becoming my new favorite along with the glass ball. Each style has its own features that I love.

The Serene living in amber measures about 4.5" x 4.5" x 8" and weighs 2 pounds. The Glass egg sits upon a wooden base adding to its earthy look and letting the egg be the centerpiece.

Here is the unboxing video

Serene Living Amber diffuser uses Ultrasonic Technology which does not heat or damage crucial oil properties, which allows you to enjoy all the benefits of aromatherapy. The essential oils are dispersed in an ultrafine vapor. This helps suspend them in the air for longer periods of time and better inhalation. The selections for power are on/off, 1 & 2 hour timers, and a 3 stage nightlight/dim feature. We typically turn the light completely off on our Greenair diffusers for night time, while Little crazy life keeps her son white or blue.


One of the features of the New GreenAir Serene Living Mister is a 400ml reservoir, which allows up to 7 hours of essential oil diffusing. This is important as we use these in our rooms at night to allow for noise to help Mr sleep at night.

We use about 3-5 drops of essential oils to the reservoir depending on the strength of the oil. Some of our favorites right now are lavender mint, orange clove, and lemongrass.



Like any hand-blown glass the fit may not be exact, but the beauty of the egg far surpasses the need for a perfect fit. There is a rubber ring that sits on the base to protect the glass cover. There is a slight bubbling sound that helps lull you to sleep. Like all the other New GreenAir diffusers these turn off when there is no more water. Be sure to pay attention to the fill mark within the base so the water doesn’t pool up on the surface under the diffuser.

This is absolutely beautiful. The more I look at it the more I love it.

21 drops essential oil blend review



I have a follow up review on 21 drops with another blend. You can read my previous review of 21 drops blends.

This is the pain relief essential oil blend. This little roller bottle increases circulation while helping to reduce pain, stiffness and inflammation. My 7 year old is going to LOVE this. She has 2 extracurricular activities and one of them frequently causes her to get pain when she falls. I don’t like administering ibuprofen on a regular basis, so this is going to be awesome for her. She loves the feeling of taking control of her own body and getting herself better, so this will be added to my mini first aid kit in her bag.  

The ingredients in this blend are 100% natural essential oils of Ginger, Helichrysum, Juniper, and Myrrh mixed in 100% organic jojoba oil
 - Ginger helps with circulation
 - Helichrysum aids bruised areas
 - Juniper helps ease discomfort
 - Myrrh helps soothe muscles 

What I love is 21 drops does NOT use Parabens - Sulfates - Synthetic Fragrances - Synthetic Dyes - Petrochemicals - Phthalates - GMOs – Triclosan, Nor is it animal tested. Their carrier oil is 100% organic jojoba oil which makes me more comfortable using it.

Essential oils work by Inhalation and Topical application. Check out 21 drops site for more information. The oils are meant to be used on pulse points such as temples, wrists and the back of the neck.

Application is recommended by rolling on in a circular motion, 5x each, to wrists, temples, and directly on to area of concern. Inhale deeply after each application. Reapply frequently and throughout the day to help reduce discomfort and distress.

The smell of this oil is a citrus scent to me, and I love it! Its better than all the mass produced menthol products out there that do nothing to heal. You can learn more about essential oils on 21 drops site here. 

When using on children do your research as some are not recommended for children. I personally do not recommend ingesting EOS with some of the recent information that I have come across.  You can find a guide for EOS here.

If you are interested, 21 drops has also been seen in Martha Steward Living, The Today Show, and The Oprah Magazine.

Nixall Household products review


Nixall is about family and animal wellness.

Nixall® First-Aid solution
This is a great product for cuts, scrapes and abrasions. Nixall® First Aid is designed for all minor outdoor recreation skin issues, irritations and small wounds. It is without harsh chemicals or toxic substances so you can feel good about using it on your entire family!

Nixall® Wound & Skin
Nixall® Wound + Skin on hand for blisters and skin blemishes, minor rashes, sunburns and minor wounds. Similar to our First-Aid product but more for everyday use, because Wound + Skin can be sprayed regularly to improve skin texture and moisture content as well. Since it is safe for eyes, ears, nose and mouth, it can be used on the face as well.

Nixall® Cleanser
Nixall® Cleanser is the everyday Nixall® product for the home - everything from pet areas to bathrooms, kitchens and really, the entire house. Use Nixall® Cleanser in your home's humidifier to clean the air as well!
Nixall® also offers a travel-size Cleanser for all the 'small stuff' that causes odors or needs cleaning, and wards off the travel crud that comes from public transit and facilities.

Nixall® Disinfectant
I didn’t get to try the Nixall® Disinfectant. This is great for the big jobs that need sanitizing and disinfecting! Nixall® Disinfectant is a hospital grade product that kills many dangerous pathogens including HIV, C-diff, MRSA just to name a few. See kill claims here.


 

The science behind their product line is simple… Hypochlorus acid. What is that you ask? It is an infection fighting substance that is found naturally in the human body. This has been replicated by running an electrical charge through salt and water. The reaction reproduces the hypochlorus acid called anolyte water.  Read more here.

Nixall uses a variety of concentrations to create a whole line of products for your family.  Check out commonly asked questions here.


Nonda Zus Review

http://www.nonda.co/products/nonda-zus-smart-car-charger
 Nonda ZUS is more than just a USB charger, it’s a locator also!


A few of the features that I LOVE about the Zus is the Smart Device Detection, 2x Charging Speed (4.8A), Low Energy Bluetooth, Smart Car Locator, Titanium Coating, Data Plan Free, dual ports and so much more.




A few other features it has are as follows:
·         Designed in Germany
·         ElegantShine™ Lighting provides great usability in dark environments.
·         12-month warranty
·         US Military Grade Quality - MIL-STD-810G High Temperature Standard
·         German Bayer Material
·         ZUS Cooling System
When you come back all you have to do is open the app! It shows you a compass and a direction to start walking along with approximate distance. It appears to have some issues locating in garages or covered areas. It only remembers the last place you parked and turned your engine off. If you lend it to your wife, friend or family member, you can no longer track your location.
One other feature I noticed is a parking time alert as well which is fantastic!


The Car locator is 100% automated. Plug ZUS in, install the free app, connect, and you are done. ZUS will automatically remember where you park your car once you turn the engine off. It appears you should have your Bluetooth on while you open the app and turn off your car.

Max and Dora review and giveaway

Max & Dora sent me these ADORABLE outfits to review and give away! These clothes are super high quality and extremely soft.

The best thing about this company is they are made in the USA!  The name was created after the owners great-grandparents.  Very sweet and makes me tear up a little.  “It represents the dreams of coming to America…. Each piece is American Made to honor all the dreams of those that came before us and those who will continue the Dream….”

They say that their style is “recognizing the beauty of simple…with a touch of whimsy”. I absolutely love this. As a busy mom….Simple is very welcome. I love that many of the styles can be mixed and matched as well as the sweet accessories that can be added to change up an outfit or the reversibles that create variety.

I will update this with more pictures when my 7 year old model cooperates. ;)



 The Hazel Tunic dress in Denim is super sweet with a simple white jacquard dot ruffle trim. Throw this baby on with a pair of leggings or capris and your kiddo is SET! Add one of the accessory flowers and you can change up the outfit to match the leggings!

 This dress is SO precious! The Isabella Navy Flounce dress has a flounce at the hem with a zipper in the back. Pair with a pair of shimmery leggings and a cardigan and you are set for a day on the town!




These stretch leggings are AMAZINGLY soft and movable. LCS wont wear jeans or clothes that are restricting. This outfit is so cozy that I wish I had it in my size.

The sarah Jane solid Cardigan is paired with The Reagan Navy and white Stripe Tulle Skirt. It is 100% French cotton Terry and SUPER soft! On the cardigan is this super sweet navy/white 2.5” flower. This can change the look of an outfit with just a simple clip! It adds so much versatility to a childs wardrobe when they wear an outfit over and over (and over)!

The Skirt is reversible! How cool is that? This may be one of my favorite items as a mom. Who wouldn’t love two looks in one garment?

As I browse their site I see their spring collection and find myself dreaming of sweet, crisp air and the promise of new beginnings. You see, February is when we found out about LC! It holds a sweet spot in my heart and I can remember the smell of the air when we found out.

I think some of my favorites from this collection are the Charlotte Jersey dress, Maggie French Terry A-line Dress, Fifi Dress dolled up with a bow from the accessories, ALL of the Joelle dresses,, and the Tara Reversible Tulle dress (again REVERSIBLE!),

More of my favorites are as follows; Cade Black taffeta with large silver coin dots, Evee Three tier petti skirt, Harper Navy Tulle Dress, BOTH lizette dresses, and the audrey Dress. I could seriously go on for days.

Enter to win one of these outfits below!
