Product Review - Boyfriend ~ by Kate Walsh

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh ~ this sensual new fragrance will have you hooked instantly!  I reviewed the fragrance and had so many positive comments!  I personally love the rollerball, it is convenient ~ and you can carry it in your purse and pull it out just before heading into work, to that special event, or just before meeting with that special someone after work!

Actress Kate Walsh wanted to capture the scent of a guy on a girl:  a man's cologne mixed with perfume, the smell that lingers on the skin.  This fragrance evokes memories of that time after he has left for the day - when she gently awakes in a bed that's still warmly redolent of "boyfriend".

An alluring balance of vanilla, jasmine blossoms, and an accord of amber is set against the sensual scents of a man, including a light musk and a shimmer of fresh woods.

Orthobean - Review and GIVEAWAY **ENTER NOW**


PRODUCT AND COMPANY OVERVIEW:  Orthobean products were created while Jimmy was recovering from many surgeries on his foot, after an accident.  Many things were placed under his foot in an attempt to alleviate some of the pain.  Nothing seemed to work.  Many did not have enough cushion, some had the cushion but it did not relieve any of the pressure.  Finally, through a process of consultation with medical professionals, physical therapists and consumers, the Orthobean family of products was formed.   Exhaustive research, countless designs, and feedback from their research consultants yielded the Orthobean family of products.  Products to help you live your active life with more comfort everyday!!

$ COST:  Orthobean has 4 orthopedic products ranging in price from $24.95 to $59.95.  They feature The Bow, the Ring, the Curve and The Bodybean.  Go here to view their products and learn a little more about their wonderful versatility!

Deb's Review of The Ring:  The Ring is larger, and therefore many like to use it at home. However, I like mine while I am riding in the car, at a sporting event, or when I am just watching TV.  The Ring is the one!  Cuddle up with the Ring anyplace and let it mold to the shape of your body and eliminate pressure points. The Ring is perfect for:
  • Home Comfort
  • Auto Comfort
  • Travel Comfort
  • Sporting Events
  • Support Surface
  • Off-Load Limbs
  • Care Gifting
  • Dorm Rooms at School
  • Post Procedure Comfort

Deb's Review of The Curve:  The Curve can be used not only to support your neck but also your shoulders, legs, arms…the possibilities are endless.  The unique design of the curve allows it to support any body part you choose.  The stretchy spandex/nylon cover allows airflow to reduce heat while the millions of ultra-slippery microbeads contour and support anywhere you choose.The Orthobean Curve is perfect for:

  • Home Comfort
  • Auto Comfort
  • Travel Comfort
  • Sporting Events
  • Support Surface
  • Off-Load Limbs
  • Post Procedure Comfort

What is the secret to the Orthobeans?  I personally believe the secret is all in the microbeads.  Microbead pillows adapt o your desired position and provide support and stability to any part.  Microbead pillows are designed for comfort and durability.  Microbeads will not bunch up like conventional pillows.  Their ability to provide airflow, in conjunction with the spandez/nylon cover allows the pillow to stay cool, no matter how long the pillow is used.  The microbeads are also hypoallergenic.  Many people suffer with allergies, and with the Orthobean products, you do not risk that, since they are all hypoallergenic!  Also, the Orthobean pillows are more versatile than a conventional pillow.  The variety of sizes and shapes allows Orthobean to provide the comfort and support you desire.    

Orthobean is awarding one winner BOTH products I reviewed!  Yes, you get The Curve as well as The Ring!  What an amazing double giveaway!!!  The contest begins now and will run through 12/22/11.  The winner will be announced on 12/23/11 The winner will be chosen via  This contest is open to U.S. residents only.  GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!

Tropical Traditions 5 lb. Powdered Detergent ~ Review and #Giveaway, **ENTER NOW**!!

PRODUCT AND COMPANY OVERVIEW:  Their founders, Brian and Marianita Jader Shilhavy were talking one day and Marianita explained to Brian there was a method older generations used to extract oil.  She explained their process involved grating fresh coconut, extracting the milk and then letting that milk stand for over a 24 hour period, in a container.  After that time, she explained to him the oil would separate naturally.  This produces clear oil with the scent and taste of coconuts.  At that time they began making their own coconut oil in the same manner.  I invite you to click here to read more about Tropical Traditions and their founders.  They definitely have a story to tell!

$ COST:  The 5 lb. container of the Tropical Traditions Laundry Detergent is normally $30.00.  However, right now you can obtain it for only $16.99!  What an awesome deal for this high-quality product!

Deb's Review of the Tropical Traditions Laundry Detergent:  My family has been using the Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent for about 2 weeks now.  We actually never purchase powdered detergent, so this was an awesome opportunity for us to try out a high-quality one.  This was such a great laundry detergent.  You would never know it is a powder.  So, if you are stuck in a rut of using only liquid, I challenge you to try this one!  The powder detergent dissolved wonderfully and left absolutely no residue on our clothing.  Do you or someone in your household have sensitive skin?  This may be the answer to your problems.  Tropical Traditions Powder Laundry Detergent contains no perfumes or dyes.  I was amazed at the amount I had to use.  We have a large-sized washer.  For a large-sized washer you are to use 1/2 cup (4 oz).  Yes, that is it!!!  This
5 lb. container of detergent will last us quite awhile, and we are a family of 5!!!  What we love about Tropical Traditions is that it is environmentally safe, non-toxic and contains no phosphates.  

Go here to order Tropical Traditions Powdered Detergent currently only $16.99 (regularly priced $30.00)

Tropical Traditions 5 lb. Powdered Detergent GIVEAWAY:  Tropical Traditions has agreed to award a lucky winner a 5 lb. container of their Powdered Detergent!  Enter now to win!  The contest begins now and will run through 12/19/11.  The winner will be chosen via and will be announced on 12/20/11.  This contest is open to U.S. and Canada residents only.  GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!
