I received this Kiva Hot & Sweet Smoked paprika in exchange for my unbiased review and all opinions here are 100% my own.

I love to cook and try out new recipes, spices, flavors and textures. I am excited that I got to try out this paprika and see what new creations I could make with it.

First I tried out the Hot Smoked paprika in making a Spanish meatloaf. I used a couple of dashes into my regular recipe and a couple dashes into my sauce I put on top of the meatloaf (I set my family on fire) to see how it would come out. IT WAS WAY TO HOT! So I made a note to myself that whatever I used it in next I would not use as much.

Second time I used the hot Smoked Paprika I used it in my homemade chili and made sure NOT to use too much. It was so good!!!!!!!!! It gave it a rich smoky kick without burning my eyeballs out. The whole family loved it and there were no leftovers that night.

The second paprika that Kiva sent was Sweet Smoked and I decided to use it on my fried chicken (YUMMY!). The paprika gave it a slight kick with a little sweet undertone and when mixed with all the other herbs and spices I put onto my fried chicken, you were talking about a SOUTHERN PLATE OF FRIED CHICKEN that the whole family would come home for!!!

If you like a little spice or a whole lot of spice, I believe you will really enjoy this Kiva paprika. It has a great flavor and seems to be made of high quality peppers. If you are interested in purchasing this Kiva paprika I have placed a link below for your convenience.

This is a comfy little travel pillow! I received it in exchange for my unbiased review.

I have cricks in my neck all the time because of the way I sit, I have back problems so sometimes I sit crooked like and it makes me turn my neck in an awkward position. I saw this Air Comfy travel pillow and thought well I could give it a try while i am sitting watching T.V. to see if it would give me some relief on my neck.

It is small and compact and easy to inflate and very easy to position, so when I sit I just lay my neck on it to give me support so it does not strain it or give me a crick. 

I know it is a travel pillow, which I have used in the car for myself and Natalie has used it in her car seat to lean her head on but it can be used anywhere that you need to relax your neck and not put in such a bind.

I have used it at home on the couch, in my bed when I can not get a comfortable position for my neck, while sitting at my computer wedged between my shoulder blades to have more cushion, in the car and like I said our little girl has used it in her car seat for a snugly pillow to lay her head on.

I like the pillow a lot and if you are interested in ordering one for yourself here is the link below for you to do so.

Looks real nice in the picture and the one I got in the mail looked real good too, EXCEPT that it was broken and I could not use it.

It was sent to me in exchange for an unbiased review so I am not out anything BUT I did call the company and let them know it arrived broken from not being packed properly in bubble wrap or any kind of protection at all, just inside a box. They informed me they would be sending out another one to me immediately.

Well, I never heard anything from them again and I have never received a replacement. I can understand that they are a new company and will have problems starting out, that just happens sometimes BUT they could have at least sent a letter informing me that they would not be sending out another product or have taken me off their list to do a review.

I am not bad mouthing  this company in any way, I am just stating the facts. I wish them success in their business and that all the kinks get worked out.  

I received the Fractionated Coconut Oil in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

I got the oil in a full size bottle which I was happy to see because most products that you receive to test out are in a smaller size.

I first used the oil on our little girl who has severely dry skin to help moisturize her skin and make it not feel itchy.The oil stays in liquid form and absorbs into the skin fairly quickly and it does not seem to clog her pores which I like very much, she does not need any other skin problems going on.

I used it next in my hair as a scalp and hair conditioner and it made my hair feel really really soft and my scalp was not all dry and itchy anymore. We have well water so we have a lot of lime in it which dries your skin, hair and whole body out.

I have also rubbed the oil into my nail cuticles to help soften the beds and it has made my nails smoother and seems to help them grow stronger.

There are many wonderful benefits of Fractionated Coconut Oil, here are just a few:  What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?
As the name implies, Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed, thus leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides and making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very, very long shelf life and greatly increased stability.
In addition, fractionating raises the comparative concentration of Capric acid and Caprylic acid, thus giving it more of antioxidant and disinfecting effect.

I do recommend this product to anyone who has severely dry skin or scalp issues. Here is a link to Amazon where you can purchase this oil.

I am sure this was a great book but again I have had several companies here lately not send their products to me like they were supposed too but expect me to leave a review.

I can not leave a dishonest review on any product and I will not do a review on a product or company that I have not tried out. I can not say what this book was like all I can say is look it up on their site and see what it has to say.

Okay i was supposed to write a review on this product but alas it was another product that was not sent and when i contacted the company I never received a response.

So I have nothing to report about this product. All I can say is to go to their site and read up on them and decide for yourself if you wish to order the product.

Have a great day!

I was supposed to have gotten a PDF for this but it was never sent so I do not know what kind of review to leave for this.

It looks like a nice book and probably was interesting but I do not have anything to go by.

I received this Smooth Viking Beard oil for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

I was able to get another product for my husband to test out for his beard and he was really happy about it as was I. Sometimes my husbands beard can get all scraggly and wiry like a brillo scrub pad.

Image result for pictures of brillo pads 

It can be really itchy on him and dry so when the product came in he was so ready to try it out. First thing he did as I always say to do is read the label and find out about the product you are going to use. He found out that the oil is all natural and has no chemicals to break his face out.

The oil absorbed quickly and completely in his beard without it leaving a greasy feeling (he uses a brush to do this)BUT you can just apply with your fingers if you want. After just one use it makes his beard a lot easier to control and tame and has a softer texture to it. 

He has been using it for about a month now and his beard is smoother, softer and does not rub me raw while we're kissing so that is a big A+!

I received the GetCandLED 24 Deluxe Flickering Tea Light Set for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased testing review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

The lights came just like they are packaged above with batteries already installed in them ready to be used for whatever you would like to use them for.

They are the average size of tea lights, have an on and off switch on the bottom and are SUPER EASY to use. They have a yellow like flame but it does not get hot to the touch at all.

They have a nice soft light to them. I used a couple in some tea light holders that have images cut out in them so they flicker that picture on the wall. Natalie our 6yr. old wanted two of them to use in her dollhouse as small fire pits to pretend they were roasting smores and hot dogs over them, which I thought was really cute and creative. She also said that next year we could get a couple of small pumpkins and carve them out and put them in it so they would be "Spooky".

Also for the rare moments when you can have a child free night, I recommend putting these in different places to set a nice romantic mood to have dinner or to have a nice hot bubblebath with soft lighting to just relax.

They are very versatile in their uses and to me are better than using real tea lights because they do not get hot, you do not have to worry about starting a fire or your child or animal getting burned.

I received this Smart Weigh scale for free in exchange for my honest review and all my opinions here are all my

I have never owned or operated a jewelry/money scale of this compact size before so when I say PLEASE READ THE DIRECTIONS, you really need to because there is so much information on the operation of this scale.

It came promptly and was well packaged. It came with the Smart Weigh Scale, a pair of tweezers and a set of calibration weights.

The LCD screen with large digits was easy to use and read and thank goodness for that because I can not read tiny print or buttons, the magnifying glass company has certainly got rich off me.

It can weigh your jewelry or coins in 20gram increments, basically 4 quarters. We played around with it and showed our 6yr. old girl how she could weigh her jewelry and her coins and things like that.

It is a nice scale and compact enough to take it anywhere but for me I would have liked to have it to where it could actually weigh a little more. This scale would be great for anyone who is in the business of buying or selling gold and silver but to have in your home, unless you are a jeweler, I would not recommend it to use as anything else. 

Here is a link below where you can go to Amazon to see it for yourself and make your own decision.

I received the CanYouHandlebar
Beard Oil Brush for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

I was happy that I got to try out something that my husband could use.He has a long beard and it can get pretty scraggly at times. Beard oil helps his beard look good but he can not stand how it feels on his hands, said it is too much like womens lotion,lol.

The beard oil brush helps him to apply the wet and dry oil to his beard without getting it all over his hands. The bristles of the brush massage it through his beard and really gets it in there along his jawline.

Now he can use it to distribute the oil to penetrate all the hairs but the bristles which are made from horsehair are not really stiff enough to use it as a styling brush but I do not think it was meant for that use anyway, just as a brush to help apply the oil.

The CanYouHandlebar brush came in a nice collectors tin and is easy to handle and use.The handle is made of wood and is hand branded on top with their signature question mark.

My husband really likes it and was happy I got it to test out so that is a win win all the way around.Below is a link to their Amazon page so you can order this.
