Uniformed Scrubs Review

For those of you who don't know I work in a local jail as a Medical Assistant. I also just got accepted into a L.V.N. program! (L.P.N. in other states) So my whole uniform consists of scrubs. I recently was sent a pair of scrubs from Uniformed Scrubs, a fairly new online scrub store.

I've been needing a pair of solid black scrubs for a while so I was excited when they shipped them to me. I chose Dickies Scrubs Youtility Cargo Pant and for the top Dickies Youtility Mock Wrap Top. Unfortunately, their website is still a work in progress and not all products have pictures, that was the case with my pants. The descriptions give little info on the stitching color.

When I first received my package the pants were incorrect. I was sent pants that had very little pockets and as a Medical Assistant I carry my stethoscope in the pockets. The pants I received were stitched with bright pink which didn't match the top that was stitched in grey. I contacted Uniformed Scrubs who said the manufacturer had made an error and they would fix it and send me out the pants I had asked for.

Thursday, December 20, 2012 Photo Collage Review and Giveaway!

I love taking photos of my friends, family, events, and places I've been too. I've been meaning to decorate my room with more photos of my friends and I. I recently had the opportunity to customize a 20x30 photo collage poster from makes it easy to personalize your own photos and put them on posters, blankets, canvases, mouse pads, mugs, and cards. They have many options and so many fun shapes to choose from including: rectangles, words like Family, seasonal shapes, and romantic shapes. They make the perfect gift for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and any excuse to give a gift.

Pink Zebra Review

With this holiday season fast approaching we have guests coming over and we are constantly worried if our house smells good or if our house smells like Malibu, our dog. I love candles, but I hate the smoke they create when you blow them out. Pink Zebra was able to make our house smell delicious without dealing with the side effects of candles.

Pink Zebra offers candles, diffusers, simmer pots, lotions, and even soaps. I received a small simmer pot in ivory ($20) and cinnamon spice sprinkles ($8).

Warmly Yours Towel Warmer Giveaway

WarmlyYours Barcelona Towel Warmer Review and Giveaway! 12/3- 12/10

Review and Giveaway by Real Reviews by Savvy K!
In the winter, I always hate taking showers in the morning! It is always so cold in my apartment when I wake up that I can not wait to get in the warm shower, but when it's time to get out, I am colder than I was when I got in! The WarmlyYours Barcelona Towel Warmer definitely changes up my perspective on those morning showers!
The Barcelona Towel Warmer is manufactured with a flawless brushed stainless steel finish to ensure lasting beauty and durability. It has 8 sleek horizontal bars that can easily dry and warm large towels or bathrobes. Designed as a freestanding unit, giving you the flexibility to use it in virtually any room of your home – bathroom, laundry room, or even in a dorm room. The towel warmer is not very big, 24” W x 36” H, so it isn't very bulky. They also have many versions of wall mounted towel warmers for smaller bathrooms! They also have a 2 year warranty on the Barcelona Towel Warmer! How awesome is that! "WarmlyYours towel warmers are backed by a 2-year No-Nonsense Warranty and come with our highly recognized lifetime 24/7 technical support."
Now being that I have never actually used or owned a towel warmer I was a skeptic at first. A plug in towel warmer in the bathroom? Isn't it dangerous and does it actually work? Well, I would say yes and no. If you get this too close to the shower/bath of course it will be just as dangerous as any plug in device. (Ex: Your hair straightener or blow dryer.) So, be sure to keep this at a safe distance in your bathroom when using. As for the question does it work? It goes above and beyond expectations for me!

Makeup Geek Review

Have you heard of the company Makeup Geek? Have you seen Marlena's video tutorials on youtube? If not you are missing out! Makeup Geek is a relatively new company that is coming out with new makeup products all the time including their brand new gel eyeliners!

I was lucky enough to be able to try several of Makeup Geek's lipsticks and eye shadows. I had previously tired one of the eyeshadow colors in my Beauty Box 5 Review and fell in love. I received the nine eyeshadow starter kit, ($48.99) and I can happily say these did not disappoint. Every color I recieved was highly pigmented and had very little fall out. The only one that had a little issue was when I was trying to use corrupt as an eyeliner. I'm big into neutrals and loved how this kit included some purple colors that could be worn as neutrals.
Left side is used with a primer while the right side isn't

Beauty Box 5 Review

I love beauty products, but if you are like me you never know if you are going to like a product or not. Beauty Box 5 is the perfect solution. They send you 4-5 samples to try out from all different brands, some items are even full sized. I love how it is only $12 for a month and it has free shipping straight to your door. The box it came in was super cute. It was teal and had black confetti strips inside. I received the box for the month of August.

Skin-Peel Review

Have you heard about skin peels? For those of you who haven't let me tell you, skin peels are chemical peels you apply to your face to get amazing, soft, and glowing skin. There are many different types of peels ranging from Salicylic acid to Jessner peels to Glycolic peels. helped me choose which skin peel would be best for my skin.

Although there are many different peels they all basically do the same thing just for different problems. I suffer from acne, so I chose the Salicylic acid in a 20%. Since this was my first time trying a peel I opted to start with the medium strength, they do come in several different strengths. The peel is supposed to unclog your pores and leave you skin feeling soft after peeling.

Take Me There - Island Vanilla Pacifica Review

Smelling like vanilla always relaxes me. With taking a full load of college classes and working almost full time I could use all the relaxing I could get. Pacifica perfume has sent me into a world of relaxation and vanilla bliss. I was able to try the Island Vanilla Take Me There Set ($18) and the body wash ($10). I love how this set includes a body butter, perfume roll-on, and a color quench natural moisture lip tint. I tried all these products in the scent Island Vanilla which mixes Tahitian vanilla with honey-jasmine.

Madison at Main Rug Review and Giveaway

We all use rugs, whether it be at an entry way, in our bathroom, or in our living room. Rugs give you the ability to show your personality without it being permanent. My family has been needing a new rug for our bathroom for a while now. I came across Madison at Main while searching the internet. Madison at Main has every type of rug pattern I can think of from childrens rugs, to gardening rugs, to monogram rugs. They have 26 pages of rugs! I recently had the opportunity to try a Jellybean rug. I had a hard time choosing just one rug, but in the end I picked the rug in Snow Leopard.

Medusa's Make-Up Review

Hello ladies, this is a review aimed at what I know I'm obsessed with MAKEUP! I'm literally obsessed with it. My friends don't think I should own any more because my whole bathroom is filled with all types of makeup. I recently had the chance to try Medusa's Eye Dust in Rising Sun. It is this georgous pink gold color, more gold than pink but that's ok. It is a dust so you have to pat it on to apply or have a lot of fall out. It goes on pretty easy and stays on well with a primer. It did crease a little but that was expected. Overall I was really happy and even better it comes in so many colors and it's only $7.00.

Rising sun is the sparkly goldish color and I used brown shadow to blend.

Auric Blends Review and Giveaway

We all love smelling nice. Whether it be from our shampoo, body wash, lotion, or perfume. I recently had the chance to try some of Auric Blends roll on perfumes and solids. I hate how when using spray perfumes as soon as you change clothes you no longer smell wonderful. Auric Blends has created some perfume roll ons to solve this problem at a great price! Auric Blends perfume roll ons retail for $7.50 which is a steal! The bottle lasts for quite a while and you don't have to worry about spraying too much! It also doesn't leave your skin oily!

ila Security Dusk and Pebble Review and Giveaway

As a college student I like going out at night, however unless I'm with a huge group of people I don't feel safe. I constantly have the fear that if something bad was to ever happen I would freeze up and not be able to scream. Although I am trained in self-defense I like any option to stay safer. I even had pepper spray, but I'm not allowed to carry it due to working in a jail. 

ila Security specializes in woman's safety devices. They have many types of personal security alarms. I had the opportunity to try their ila Dusk Personal Alarm and the ila Pebble Keyring Alarm.

Bagblaze Review and Giveaway

Working in a jail, I can't bring a huge purse. I currently have a little clutch that I use all the time because it takes to much effort to keep changing. I recently had the chance to try a wallet from Bagblaze. I received the Sundae iPhone wallet in red. The Sundae iPhone wallet is perfect. It has a zippered wallet and on the outside it has a pocket that fits the iPhone. I love this wallet. It's small so it fits only the necessities. Even better is the price, you can't go wrong. You can get your own for only $14.95.

Brianna's Home Style Dressings Review

I recently had the chance to try four of Brianna's Home Style Dressings: Asiago Caesar, Chipotle Cheddar, Dijon Honey Mustard, and True Blue Cheese. 

I love baking with this Caesar dressing, I simply brush it on raw chicken and bake in the oven! It turns out delicious especially if you have a salad with it! I love Caesar dressing with lots of cheese and this one totally delivers! It makes my salads so amazing and I'm super picky when it comes to Caesar dressings! I highly recommend this dressing if you want a cheesy Caesar taste!

This Chipotle Cheddar dressing is delicious for dipping your steak into. It's not too spicy, it's a lot more cheesy. They blend the exotic flavor of smoked jalapeƱos with rich, robust cheddar cheese and zesty Southwestern spices. If you are tired of typical steak sauces I definitely think you should try this one out.

The Dijon Honey Mustard dressing is my absolute favorite! I love dipping my fried chicken strips into it! They have managed to balance the mustard and the honey just right, it's not too sweet or too bitter. If you love Honey Mustard sauce you will definitely love this one!

My mom's favorite! She loves dipping her carrots into it! Not only that but it's the best Blue Cheese dressing for your salad! If you are a veggie addict and love finding new traditional sauces to dip it in you need to try this one!

I love how on every bottle it states whether it's Gluten Free, Nut Free, Lactose Free, Egg Free, Vegan, or Vegetarian! No more guessing! Even better these products are approximately $3.99 at Walmart which is a great price!

Be sure to check them out on Facebook!

nuNAAT Review and Giveaway

My hair is one of the things I've always been self conscious about. In middle school my hair never did what I wanted. It refused to go curly or straight. It was always poufy and not shiny. Since then I've been on the hunt to find hair care that leaves my hair soft, shiny, and healthy. Recently I had the opportunity to test out four nuNAAT products from their NAAT Brazilian Keratin Line. I received the NAAT Daily Care Shampoo, NAAT Daily Care Conditioner, NAAT Liquid Keratin Leave-In Reconstructor, and NAAT Intensive Hair Mask.

Eylure False Eyelashes and Batiste Dry Shampoo Review and Giveaway

My number one requirement for leaving the house is having amazingly long and defined eyelashes and my hair has to look decent. Depending on where I'm going mascara may not cut it. I recently had the chance to try Eylure's false eyelashes. I've worn eyelashes before so applying them was easy. The packages even included glue which was perfect because I always forget to buy some. They are simple to apply. Make sure you apply your eye makeup first otherwise it's impossible to get it to look good. Eyelure's eyelashes come in many different looks so you can go from natural looking to more defined. I even like these more than the other brand I currently use. They have something for every look you are trying to achieve.
