About six weeks ago I was given the opportunity to try some products from Healtop, which the company’s founder describes as “a company dedicated to increasing health & wellness through natural, efficient and effective proven supplements, vitamins, skincare products, and more.”  You can read more about the people behind Healtop and the philosophy of the company right here.

As a U.S. Family Guide blogger, I agreed to provide an honest review of the products they sent me.  I picked the bundle of products for women over 45.

My bundle arrived with the items in pretty floral packaging and I could already smell them before I opened them  (That’s a good thing–I LOVE the way they smell!)  My bundle had face cream, body cream, and a bottle of some kind of liquid supplement called “Balance.”

I didn’t really know what to make of the supplement but I know what to do with face and body creams so I started using those right away.  They are made of all natural ingredients and like I said they smelled wonderful.  I really enjoyed using them,  especially the face cream.  When you get older and your skin gets drier sometimes it has almost a thirsty feeling, you know?  And this cream really satisfies this.  I think coconut oil is its base ingredient and it’s a little hard to get used to because it is kind of shiny going on, but once it is absorbed there is no greasy feel to it at all.

So I loved the externally applied Healtop products, but let’s talk about the supplement.  Balance has a lot of herbs in it you might have heard of like Dong Quai, Black Cohosh, and Elderberry.  I didn’t really know what it was supposed to do, but I said I’d try it so I started taking a dose morning and night (twenty drops of it in water).  I am still taking it and I think I will have to buy more when it’s gone because . . . WOW.

I had to engage in some very physical tasks after I started taking this involving carrying heavy things up steep stairs multiple times for about five days.  Y’all, I had SO MUCH ENERGY.  I have been feeling old and draggy for quite awhile now and all of a sudden I was just invigorated! I wasn’t doing anything different other than taking this Balance stuff.   So I am sold.

If you are lucky enough NOT to be over 45, they haven’t forgotten about you.  Check out these bundles:

The world is making sure we know that CHRISTMAS IS COMING.  And that’s why I am getting many requests to share products with you here on the blog.  As a US Family Guide blogger I get offers to share with you, and a free product to try in exchange for my honest review.

Today  I’m talking about TurnGram and I am sincerely excited about trying this service.  Back when I had an actual film camera I used to get triple prints, one set for us, one set for my husband to share with his family, and one set for me to share with the many people I wrote letters to.  Those days are over and although I take far more pictures than I did back in the day, I never make hard copies of them.  So TurnGram is going to be a real treat.  Let me tell you what the company has shared with me:

TurnGram is the perfect gift for everyone on your list…from your closest friend to that hard to buy for relative! For a few bucks a month, TurnGram will select photos from your Instagram feed based on instructions you provide and deliver them directly to the door of your friends and loved ones.

30 Days Free of the Most Unique Holiday Gift – Get your first month FREE when you sign up for TurnGram today! No coupon code required. 100% money back guarantee if you are dissatisfied with our service in any way. Don’t miss out! Sign up today!

Doesn’t that sound cool?  I’m opting to have my pictures sent directly to me. 🙂 I’ll be sure to come back and let you know what I think with TurnGram after I receive my first set.

Oh, y’all, I feel so bad about this.  I received this product in exchange for my honest review, and somehow I did not get around to writing the review in a timely manner.  Now it appears that the company may have suspended operations.

And I hate that, because not only did I like the product, but it’s a Knoxville company (something I didn’t learn until after the fact).

This much of the website is still up and you should take a look.  If you are from Knoxville you will probably see some places you recognize in the promotional video.  If you find the product interesting you might want to follow the company on Facebook in case they make a comeback.

I received two carriers to try, and I gave one to my son who is always doing things like hiking and caving.  He was especially impressed with how strong it was.

I keep mine in my car for hiking.  I’ve used it to carry my phone and my water bottle.  The website suggests tons of other uses.  It is very versatile and yes, quite strong and secure.  I didn’t have any fears that my phone would drop along the trail.

The company was still operational as late as November so I am still hopeful they will reopen.  Keep your eyes open for Kangeaux products in the future.

Before I even give my usual disclaimer let me tell you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE my crabpot tree!

Yes, I received said tree for free in exchange for my honest review of it here, in my capacity as a blogger for National Family Guide.  But it’s not even stretching the truth a little bit to tell you that I love this thing and I would like to own many more of them.

055

First of all, the details the company wants me to share: Crab Pot Christmas Trees are remarkable, perfectly shaped trees that are pre-lit, fold flat for storage, sparkle from EVERY angle and are easily set up. What makes these holiday trees so unique and the MUST HAVE of the season for home decor? Crab Pot Christmas Trees are made from the very durable PVC Coated Crab Pot Wire which withstands all that Mother Nature throws at it.

You can see the company’s pictures and their explanatory video on my first post here.  But let me tell you about my personal experience.

This thing comes folded flat in a triangular box.  It takes literally two minutes to set up, tops.  We set it on our front porch for instant festiveness.  It came with anchors for putting it out in the yard if we had wanted to do that.  I was a little worried it might blow over in the wind but it never did even though we have had strong winds and rain, too, and our porch does get wet when it rains.

I have one complaint only which is that the cord is a little short.  It would be perfect for an in-floor or in-ground outlet but we had to attach ours to another strand of lights to reach the wall plug.  No big deal but just one detail that could be improved upon.

We love this tree and would buy more of them.  They are having a sale right now if you want to get your own–check out their site right here!

Here’s another product I will be getting free in exchange for reviewing it on behalf of U.S. Family Guide.  I was SO excited when I saw this product but I’m not going to tell you which one I ordered until it arrives. 🙂

As always, the company wants me to share some information about this product with you:

3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights are the perfect gift this holiday season. They have a full range of comic book, super hero, Disney Princess, sports and car lights that look as though they are popping right out of the wall! They are battery operated and cool to the touch so you can place them any where in the room! Your kids will love having these in their rooms and they’re also the perfect editions to a den, family room, man’s cave or office!

You can purchase these lights at Target and Target.com at the following link: http://bit.ly/TargetUSFamily

Now look at see how cool these are!

I’m here today to give my honest review of the AdoramaPix photobook I told you about several weeks ago.  I worry that you won’t trust a review that is as glowing as the one I am about to write.  But I assure you that even though I received this product ($50 value!) for free, I am giving you my honest opinion, as always.

So the way this works is, you head over to the AdoramaPix Website and select the type of book you want.  There a variety of designs and templates depending on what kind of book you want to make.  Are you commemorating a special occasion? Collecting vacation photos? Making a gift book for someone special? The design I chose was specifically for highlighting iPhone pictures.

Yes, y’all, I made my very own coffee table book and I could not love this thing more.  And it was so easy.  The hardest part was figuring out which pictures to use.  The second hardest part was laying them out.  There are tutorials on the site to explain how the process works–for that matter, you can let the program lay them out at random.  You can even import a layout from your own program if that sort of thing makes sense to you.  It’s not something I have any experience with so I let the program do it for me and then moved them around until I got them where I wanted them.

My book is incredible.  Does that sound vain? You would never believe I took the pictures with an iPhone.

I waited too long to post this review so the coupon code I had to offer has expired.  HOWEVER, AdoramaPix is always running specials, and they have sales going on for the rest of the month.  And I don’t know if y’all remember, but I also ordered some metal prints from them that were incredible.  So don’t limit yourself to the photobook.

Here are more pictures but they don’t do it justice.  The colors are beautiful.

Do yourself a favor and take a look at the AdoramaPix website and be sure to let me know if you buy anything!

Y’all may remember that not long ago I shared a review of some items I received from AdoramaPix.  If you didn’t read it, here’s the summary:  I loved them.

Now I have another opportunity (because I’m a U.S. Family Guide Blogger) to sample another of their products and share my thoughts with you.  As usual, this opportunity for me includes one for you as well:  a coupon that you can use to order the same item I’ll get for free (in exchange for my HONEST opinion).

You can give AdoramaPix a try now, or maybe you want to wait until I post my review.  The offer will be available for awhile.

So here’s the scoop (what the company wants me to share with you):

AdoramaPix’s custom books are high quality and display your images in rich detail. Choose from gorgeous linen, hardcover and leather covers as well as 6 stunning paper finishes.
