NuMe Classic Wand Pearl – Beautiful spiral curls in minutes. I loved the beautiful spiral curls it gave my daughter in just minutes. My daughter has LONG thick hair, but this curled it really well. These are a HIGH temp curling wand so you would not want young kids to use them, but great for teens and adults. They come with a glove to help you wrap your hair around the rod without getting burned which is a great bonus!
One of the perks to being a blogger is I am often asked to review products. LiptonPubicity asked me if I would like to review a Emjoi Micro-Pedi.… spa-like Micro-pedi is a battery operated foot buffer. It is ideal for home pedicures and is a safe, relaxing, pleasant alternative to harsh, metal scrapers and other products in the market place. It is a money saver versus spa pedicures. It beautifully buffs away rough skin and calluses, resulting in soft, touchable feet.
I was all over this one… I have never had a pedicure. My friends like to give me a hard time about it. Believe me I would love to go but just can’t bring myself to pay someone $35-$60 to rub my feet. I look at it as that is one more door knob for our home remodel or a cabinet door for my kitchen. I want kitchen cabinets more than I want pretty feet. Plus it is something I can do myself.
But lets face it I never take time to pamper myself and my feet are well….. just plain nasty. Yip here you go, just what you wanted to see right before you eat your lunch my dry, nasty cracked heels. They bleed, hurt like crazy and are not pretty. I do try to soak them and use a pumice stone… but lets face it I scrub for 5 minute get tired and give up. I have often thought about taking Matts power sander to them…. but worried I may end up doing some real damage…. (they are so bad it may shoot sparks)
I was not too hopeful, but wanted to see what this little Emjoi Micro Pedi could do. It has two sanding disks, blue for extra coarse and pink for coarse. It was no question that my monster cracks needed extra coarse. I turned it on and was impressed with how much power this little puppy had…. but then I was scared to try it on my feet. Yip that is me…. a big ole chicken. So I took a few seconds to gear myself up to the task, took a deep breath and put it to my heel. No pain at all, in fact it kind of tickled. It instantly started sanding away my hard skin.
I was SO impressed, Oh My Word…. this little tool is amazing! In a few minutes it was like someone had waved a magic wand. I put a little lotion on and my heels looked and felt better than they have in years. I then grabbed Matts feet and tired it on him, he acted like he didn’t really like it. But guess who I found using it the next morning… yep Matt had snagged it and was going to town on his feet 🙂 Ingard came over that same day too and I showed it to her, she loved it as well.
So there you have it… all three of us gave it a HUGE thumbs up!
Please know I am not paid for my review in anyway, and all my opinions are my own. But I do get to keep my Emjoi Micro-pedi, which I am rather excited about!
This past month we have shared a couple posts about internet security. We have talked about how F-Secure SAFE has come out with an all inclusive way to protect every device in your home. I mentioned that even my almost two year old loves to get online and watch kid videos on Youtube. It is crazy the videos that are online. She watches these silly videos where the guy wraps little toys inside playdoh and the entire video is the unwrapping and surprising the viewer. Our little girl and sit there for hours watching these simple videos with millions and millions of views. Her favorite spot to watch them is sitting right up next to her daddy. Lucky he is there to make sure she is watching safe videos. That is one reason why we love the features on F-Secure SAFE. It used to be that every now and then she would come across a more adult video, not crazy but just too adult for her. With the F-Secure SAFE we can set the settings on the parental controls. We can limit the chances of certain content getting through to our sweet baby or any of our other kids. My oldest boy loves sports and we all know the Sports Illustrated swimsuit content is not something for a young mind, in our eyes. My two older girls love to watch tutorials on science and even fashion or different ways to do their hair. And if you have ever search Youtube for any kind of content you can see that every now and then more adult themes sometimes pop up in the search feed.
F-Secure SAFE helps us limit the type of content any of our children might be exposed to. And it does not matter the type of device that our kids use, F-Secure SAFE works on all devices. So if one uses my tablet, the other the computer, the other my phone, and so on, they are all protected. And like most kids today they rather be searching through the internet instead of playing outside. Another awesome feature in parental controls is that you can set timers on the usage. So now once the kids reach their time limit they can then break away and go out and blow some stink off as my hubby always says! We love it when they play together online and laugh together at videos they share together. But we also feel they need to limit their time spent online and get up and stay physically active too.
We think it is important for our kids to stay connected with the world and remain up to date with technology and the ever quick changes online and in technology. The world changes so fast and technology is what drives it. No mater what one may think of it, everything now and even more in the future will be driven by technology. And with all of the changes it is darn near impossible to stay current on all of the security measures needed to maintain a safe home. That is where F-Secure SAFE comes into play. Now we can set the time limits, the content that we are exposed to and all of the things in the background are all maintained and secured through the programming from there on out. F-Secure SAFE does all of the hard work by keeping our electronics protected from viruses and malware and everything in between and beyond. It is all inclusive, just like those cruise vacations we all like to go on. You just go and don’t worry about all the details. That is what we love about it! Try it for four months free too!
In today’s world nearly everything is connected to the internet. A few years ago it was just science fiction ideas. Today it is a reality. You can lock your house from your smartphone on a beach in the Caribbean and answer the door while seeing in real time who is actually at the door. Even coffee machines, air conditioner and furnaces, just about everything in your entertainment system, and even your fridge are all connected to your home internet. Having more and more items in your home connected to the internet can in fact make life easier. And if for some reason someone hacks into your coffee maker its nor big deal if they make a fresh batch of coffee, but what about our kids. We have five kids from fourteen down to almost two. My oldest loves watching sports and playing online games. My second oldest loves learning facts online and watching funny YouTube videos. Even my youngest who is only 23 months old loves to watch funny kid shows on YouTube. Even at her age she can turn on my phone, flip through the apps till she finds her YouTube app, sign in to an account and scan through the videos till she finds her favorite videos. It’s amazing how young kids today are so computer and internet savvy.
So how do we give our family the technological freedom to learn and progress in the online world without sacrificing safety and security for not only our children but even our expensive devices? Sure we can sit right next to our kids and watch their every search and action online. Or we could have only one computer and never use smartphones or other devices. The point in history where there is only one device that connects to the internet was written in history twenty years ago because in today’s world everything is connected and everyone has a phone, even elementary kids. So what is the best way to protect our family, our children and our expensive devices? It can be stressful trying to figure out which devices or programs that are the best for our needs. There are so many different options and different programs that only work with this or that device.
Why should we have to buy different protection programs that only work on certain devices? Why should we buy one program to protect our devices from viruses and malware and then another program for browsing protection and parental control? F-Secure SAFE does all the above for all devices. It simplifies everything we need to protect our family and devices from all angles. F-Secure SAFE protects from the latest viruses, malware, spyware, stop hackers and identity thieves, online protection for your family from unwanted content, block unwanted text or calls, protection for online shopping and banking, even locating your device if stolen and protecting your files if stolen as well. I’m telling you it does everything. I wonder if it will even wash the dishes? May the next update, who knows!
Now you can purchase one program that won’t bog down your device with all kinds of separate programs trying to do what just one program can do. Shop online, let your kids watch their favorite subscriptions on YouTube, and never worry about what your kids are watching or if your banking accounts are being stolen or if there’s a virus on your computer. And if your phone is stolen or lost your files and security information on it will be save and secure. So set your parental controls, sit back on what ever device you have and enjoy your family and don’t worry if your youngest is programming her own app’s, who knows.
