Naturalico Shiatsu Massager (Heated) - Kneading Massage Therapy for Foot, Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain - Relieves Sore Muscles - Total Body Relaxation

Naturalico Shiatsu Massager (Heated) - Kneading Massage Therapy for Foot, Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain - Relieves Sore Muscles - Total Body Relaxation

My Review
This is really great for both the money and for all of the different ways you can use it to massage your aching muscles. I will say that it can be a little rough on some problem areas of the back. However I do like it a lot on the neck. My only problem with it placed on my neck is that my hair does get pulled and tugged. My husband uses it on his legs after his run.  Yesterday I tried it out for the first time on a drive to see how it did in the car. It worked really well on the neck, but it was not comfortable for me to do on my back while driving. If you like those massagers at the mall or in those gadgets stores you're really going to like this. I did see a review where they talked about the cord being short. I don't seem to find that as an issue. We have tried it in various places in our house, including at my desk in my office chair and indifferent furniture around the house. We have not had any issues with the cord being short. That includes the length of the cord when driving as well.

This product was provided to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review. Every item that I receive to review I test them and various members of my family test them as well and we all give our feedback. This was easy because everyone seemed to love it. I stand behind my review and I give it 5 stars.

  • DEEP MUSCLE RELAXER - Add heat and intensity to hard-to-reach muscle groups for a relaxing massage that helps reduce tightness and improve flexibility
  • MULTIPLE MASSAGE NODES - We've created the ideal amount of kneading shiatsu pressure with four rotating nodes to cradle, support and relax muscles
  • WARM, COMFORTING HEAT - The Naturalico also offers a soothing heat that reaches deep into muscle fibers to release tension, stress and even pain
  • IMPROVED RECOVERY TIMES - Healthy massage is a great way to help recover from injuries because it increases circulation for improved mobility
  • MORE RESTFUL SLEEP - Using bi-direction movement that mimics the feeling of a personal massage. Coupled with heat therapy, you'll find reaching deep REM sleep happens more quickly and easily

Fitglam Silk Mask - Blindfold

ONLY $12.95

This is a great product for anyone who likes complete darkness to sleep.  I came down with Bell's Palsy this summer, so the mask has been beneficial for me since my paralyzed eye doesn't close all the way for sleep.  Over the years, I've been known to use a mask for sleep so I have some experience with them.  This is nice and the ability to adjust the back of it is perfect for me.  I have a lot of hair and if it is too tight, it becomes to uncomfortable.  With this mask, I don't have that problem.  The gel mask is nice for headaches, or to refresh your eyes in the morning if you didn't get enough sleep.  I didn't and won't use the earplugs because I have a 2 and 3 year old, I can't afford to not hear them in middle of the night.  I like the pouch they came with and the ability to wash both.

This was provided to me for free or for a heavily discounted rate in exchange of an honest review.  I have used the product and believe for the price and the quality, it is deserving of a 5 star review.  I stand behind all of my reviews and am under no obligation to leave a positive one.

My Review

I really like this set of lights. The purple is pretty and shows up well on my table. I use these to draw attention to my books when I'm at a book signing. They are copper wired so I can bend them to wrap around my books or whatever decorations I'm using for the event. I will say that most lights like these do go through batteries pretty fast. They're only used for book signings so they last longer for me. The lights don't get hot, so I don't worry about anyone accidentally getting burned if they touch them. Kids are notorious for trying to touch the lights.

These were sent to me for free in exchange of an honest, unbiased review. I'm not obligated to leave a positive review and I stand behind the 5 stars I give the lights. Thank you for allowing me to review them.

Rafflecopter Giveaway Thievery

Enter to win one of 5 ecopies of Thievery, School of the Seven Bells.  One Grand Prize of a signed copy of Thievery!

When I became the headmaster of the School of the Seven Bells, I followed the rules that were set long before I came along. The only rules we break are those that involve thievery inside the borough. When my second in command, Alaric went out training a new pickpocket, he witnessed a girl stealing a scarf. Not only did he see her steal it, but so did an enforcer. The borough doesn't tolerate thieves and sentences them to death by hanging before the sun comes up the following day. He helped her escape, and for the first time since I've been in charge, an outsider was allowed in our school. Someone is looking for her, and now the school is at risk. We can't allow her to die, but how many of us have to die trying to protect her?
Devyn Dawson delivers a fast paced epic tale of bravery and ambition. It's perfect for anyone who is ready for something different....

Read what reviewers are saying.

I normally don't read this genre of books but once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I drained my phones battery so many times! The author did a phenomenal job of describing this new world she created so much so I could see everything in my mind's eye. Then there's the characters! I felt like I had known them my whole life and was right beside them every step of the way. Sometimes to the point of holding my breath! I loved every minute of this book and can't wait to read the next book! - Amazon Review

I loved the book. I have found my self reading different kinds of books. I felt like I was part of the story. Couldnt put it down. Makes me wonder if this could be the future. One never knows do we. Great writing-keep up the good work. Cant wait for the next one in the series ~ Amazon Review

I received an ARC for an honest review. Wow. What a strange world these young people have to live in. It does remind me of the world's in Hunger Games and Divergent where bizarre rules exist that benefit only the rich and powerful. Rebellion and subterfuge are the only means to survive. This book is about a school that teaches children how to steal, to be pickpockets, to fight. The school is hidden underground, outside the walls of the 'borough'. The cadets risk getting caught (and getting hung), each time they leave the school and sneak into the borough. It's a brutal world, where, parents, unable to pay an exorbitant child tax, must give up their newborn child to the government. The child, known only by a number, grows up in a sector, performing a lifelong job. The leaders of the underground school keep watch over the sector kids, determining which might benefit from a life at the school. Those children a kidnapped, whisked away by the school leaders to a new life if they want it. The characters in this book are easy to like. You want them to succeed, win, survive, steal, save each other, rescue, get the girl or guy they want. The world the author creates is disturbing, but colorful because of the characters and how they care about each other. Cliffhanger ending!!! When is the next book due out???? ~ Amazon Review

                                                   MY REVIEW

This review is on the AYL TF-89 Flashlight. It is a nice lightweight small flashlight that fits in my nightstand easily. I love that it comes with both the ability to be recharged or you can use regular batteries. I did not check out the regular battery option. The rechargeable battery works well. It is ridiculously bright inside the house, but perfect outside I turned it on and it was still going strong five hours later without being placed back on the charger. I received this product in exchange of an honest review. I have no problem giving a poor review if it is deserved, and this flashlight deserves 5 stars.
