~Review~ Lemon Oil by Majestic Pure

I received this product for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

This is a cold pressed Lemon Oil by Majestic Pure. It comes in nice packaging, glass bottle and has a glass eye dropper for use. It has a really nice lemon aroma when you open it.

My favorite uses for lemon oil are as a room refresher. Just put a couple drops and fill with water in a small spritzing or spray bottle. It takes away the odor from pets, cigarettes, burnt food (not that I would ever burn food ha ha), mildew or mold smells. It works well as a fabric refresher also. When we moved into this house it smelled awful. The people before us were not clean people and I have used it all over the house and it gives it such a clean fresh scent. What's better is it's a healthy natural scent, not toxin or harsh chemicals laced with lemon scent. I must say that I truly love this brand and would certainly buy it again because it is made from lemon rinds.

You can buy Lemon Oil by Majestic Pure on Amazon.

~Review~ Imaginative U Subscription Box for Kids

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own~

My kids could not wait for this box to come. They are all very hands on kids who love science projects. So we were very excited to do this. This box was full to the brim. Here is our unboxing.

We read through the book they included first. It's called Snowflake Bentley. Then we decided to start with the snow project. Imaginative U includes multiple projects in the box but my kids had done this before and loved it. So they wanted to do it again. It's very simple and re-usable. You can put it in a plastic baggie and add water once it dries and use it over and over. It's especially fun for kids that live in warm climate's. Basically all you do is pour the mix in a bowl or on something flat and add water. Enough until it turns clear.

Our next project was crystals. The box included everything you may need, and the directions were pretty helpful. There was a few parts where we had to improvise. But by the next day we had crystals as you shall see. This project was easy, but if you want instant gratification it's not in this one. My kids were excited to look the next day though and find they had crystals. It was not to hard and not to easy for them. They are 9 and 12.

My kids loved this box and for the most part your paying for stuff you already have at home. What you don't have doesn't really equal the cost of the box. But on the plus side I hate wandering around trying to find all of this stuff and to me driving to get it would cost way more than the box. I live in a rural area. So all in all we loved this box and if my kids asked I would certainly buy it just for the ease of it all. They had a blast doing just the two projects we worked on.

This box would make science fair projects a breeze. They also have boxes for groups if you home school or need a scout project. You can order Imaginative U for $45 for a three month subscription. You can also do a one month trial for $22. They also offer add a sibling for $10.

~Review~ Calf Compression Sleeves by Run Forever Sports

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own~

I am very impressed with the quality of these Calf Compression Sleeves by Run Forever Sports. They are very soft and they are sized just like they should be. I got these for my 16 year old who plays basketball and runs. They fit perfectly and tight enough but not so tight they hurt.

She has noticed a lack of cramping and shin splints since she started wearing the Calf Compression Sleeves by Run Forever Sports. She says while she has them on she doesn't even notice that they are there. It's given her the ability to practice and play longer. She is also able to run longer lengths at a time when wearing them.

We also let my 12 year old try them for basketball since they are around the same time. His results were the same, and he would like a pair of his own. On another note these are wonderful for your circulation. People who suffer from poor circulation should try them instead of those awful ugly uncomfortable socks.

You can buy Calf Compression Sleeves by Run Forever Sports on Amazon.

~Review~ Magic Seal

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own~

My husband is the worst at closing bags. I hate getting chips or bread and they are stale. The Magic Seal really is a god send. It takes seconds and fits in the drawer by your baggies or cutlery. It's very easy to use. It literally takes seconds.

The way it works is you take a Magic Seal that is around an 1/8 of an inch longer than the bag you want to seal. Fold the bag over to close and press the air out. Then you literally just slide it on. It's a tight seal. You can't even budge it and there is no air. This keeps your food fresher for weeks.

I've tried it on everything, chips, baggies, popcorn, bread, etc. The bread was the hardest because the bag is flimsy but on a chip bag you barely use any energy. I really like these and will be using mine a long time.

If you would like to try Magic Seal for yourself you can buy it on Amazon.

~Review~ Little Passports Subscription Box

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own. If you click on links in my review and purchase I will make a small commission~

My family loves to travel. We've been to almost every state in the United States and plan to next start visiting other countries. When I saw that there was a subscription box for kids that was based around traveling I was super excited. Our Little Passports box came and the kids couldn't wait to open it. We chose the World Edition subscription. Your first month you get The Explorer Kit, which is basically just a starter kit. This is for ages 5 through 10, but as you'll see the 2 year old loved it just as much as the older kids.

He was very excited by the suitcase. Since these photos this suitcase has been home to movies, cars, stuffed animals, you name it, it's been a holder for it.

This particular box has items for your upcoming journeys. The first items we got were a VERY LARGE wall sized World map. This we are putting up in the hallway between the kids rooms so they can all enjoy it. My 12 year old Michael loved this because he said it would be useful for school and his trivia games as well. Nikolas pulled out some stickers, because what little kid doesn't LOVE stickers. Besides the suitcase, he loves them best.

Still won't put those stickers down. Next we got a postcard. It has a picture of the characters Sam and Sofia and how they found this scooter that will take you anywhere in the world.

Next we got a Passport replica. This is adorable, looks totally realistic. It has a spot for your photo, and some different questions about countries and then a few pages for stamps.

The box also includes a Welcome Letter, a Boarding pass you can hang on your suitcase and an activity book. All in all I really like this box....and the boxes that follow look even more exciting. They include souvenirs also. The only thing that I do not like about this box is that the suitcase is paper. My boys will probably have it apart in a few weeks if I am lucky. But for $10.95 or $11.95 this is a good deal. It's a fun box to get in the mail and I think the kids will learn all sorts of interesting things about the world.

If you are interested in staring a subscription of your own, you can get a box that suits anywhere from ages 3 through 12. Although my 16 year old was really interested in the adorable souvenirs. This would be a great addition to homeschooling also. Go Sign up to Enjoy traveling with your kids at Little Passports

~Review~ MeasuPro Ultra-Fast & Programmable Cooking Thermometers

~I received these for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own~

Wonderful digital thermometers by MeasuPro. I received both the MeasuPro Ultra-Fast Cooking Thermometer and the MeasuPro Programmable Cooking Thermometer to test. They are both really nice.

I mainly have used the Programmable one. It has settings for all sorts of meats including veal and duck. The absolute best part of these is that you no longer need to open the oven to use either of them. Insert the probe into the meat and put the digital part on the counter while the meat cooks. They have a super long cord that can also be removed for washing. The cord is also very thin so the oven door stays closed and no heat escapes.

They both have a good clear digital view screen, the buttons are easy to use and self explanatory, not confusing at all. They both fold flat for storing. The alert is also loud enough to hear from another room so there is no need to check it.

These are a really nice product. I would buy either of them again to use. Just for the ease of not opening the oven door alone. You can buy either one on Amazon

A little bit about the KitchenPalz Electric Can Opener

- It opens cans of most sizes easily at the touch of a button. If you have arthritis, or poor hand strength, you will enjoy and appreciate this automatic can opener.

- Cans are cut from the side resulting in an edge that is so smooth, you can run a balloon over it without it popping. Keeps those little fingers safe. The top that is cut off forms a nice little lid that can be used to re-cover the can.

- You don't have to worry about can dust falling into your can contents because of how the lid is cut.

- Eazy-Cut is cordless and portable, and very easy to take anywhere. Get one for the trailer, one for the office, one to take on vacation etc.

Bonus! This opener doesn't just look sleek and stylish, but it is also quite fun to watch in action.
