Why The Litter Genie Is A Cat Owner Must Have! | #StopCatLitterSmell #LitterGenie

It is no secret that I love cats. I am a proud "cat mom" to 4 little balls of fur! As most of us cat owners know, one of the most challenging aspects of owning a cat is dealing with pet odors. I am very strict about keeping my litter boxes clean and tidy. But having 4 cats means that I have 2 litter boxes in my home that I need to care for. Although keeping my litter boxes tidy is no problem, its the trash situation that can sometimes be the cause of my pet odor in my home. For years I have been trying to come up with a way to keep my cat litter trash bucket from having offensive odors. This has been however easier said than done. I have used trash cans, bags, bags inside of trash cans, sprinkling the trash cans with baking soda, you name it, I've tried it.

When I heard about the Litter Genie I was thrilled to give it a try. I learned about the concept and it just seemed like a pure genius idea. This week the kind folks at Litter Genie sent me a Litter Genie pail to try out in my home with my cats. As soon as it arrived, I was anxious to see how it would work!

Setting up the Litter Genie took only minutes. I installed the bag refill pack into the top section of the pail. I followed the instructions and had my bag tied, and ready for use! Fast forward a few hours after my cats had done their business during the day, I was ready to see what the hype was all about. I was able to scoop my litter, and toss it in the pail. Then pulled a lever (I did this twice just to ensure that all waste was gone) and that was it. I opened up the lid after and the waste was out of sight and out of scent! Fast forward again to the next morning when it was time to clean the litter boxes again. I scooped out the waste, lifted the lid and to my surprise, no smell. I repeated the steps as I did the day before, and I was good to go! After 2 days of use, I decided it was time to start a new bag. All I had to do was open the bottom compartment, pull down on the bag, just enough so that I had room to tie off a knot, and cut the bag using the handy cutter which is mounted right in the Litter Genie. Tied a knot in the bag and I was able to take it to my trash can and dump it. Odors were locked in and sealed. After I came back and tied a new knot, the Litter Genie was ready to be used again!

The whole process of the Litter Genie is amazing. It has eliminated the litter box trash can scent that I always struggled to conceal. It is by far a wonderful tool that I highly recommend all cat owners try out!

The good news is that Litter Genie is available in Petco, Pet Smart, Target, Walmart,, and other retailers where pet products are sold. The Litter Genie retails between $14.99 and $16.99 depending on your location. You can also purchase the refills for $5.99 to $35.99 depending on your needs.

My 2017 Monthly Planner | Featuring Tools4Wisdom Planner

2017 is well underway now, so for many of us that meant that it was time to toss our 2016 planners and begin our new year with a new planner.

Being that I do blogging and now YouTube, having a monthly planner is essential for me. It helps me keep track of tasks, when I need to upload content, and things that I need to prepare for in advance. It also gives me a spot to jot down ideas for content, and video ideas. My planner is a major part of my life!

Last year for 2016 I used a smaller planner, which was nice, but I found myself running out of room. I didn't have enough space to write down my daily tasks. There was only a small space for me to write down ideas and miscellaneous things. For 2017 I told myself that this year I would go with a larger planner, and I did just that.The kind folks at Tools4Wisdom Planners kindly sent me one of their 2017 planners to put to the test.

I have been a fan of Argan Oil for years. I was quite excited to try out this one from Actually Organic. I have been using their Argan Oil for the past 3 weeks on my hair, skin, and nails. So let's dig into my thoughts and review!

The bottle is made out of a dark glass which helps keep sunlight out and tampering with the Argan Oil inside. It has a spray pump topper which is nice especially if you are using this for your hair or skin. The overall design of the packaging is attractive and appealing. Simple yet nice. I quite enjoy it!

I tend to have dry hair and dry skin in the winter months. So using Argan Oil is apart of my daily routine. I do also use it on my nails. For my hair, I like to take a dime sized amount and run it through my hair, focusing it on my ends. This helps my hair feel and look better. I also like using it as a hair mask to really let it soak in. For my skin, I use this a lot on my face and elbows. Those areas get the driest so they need a little extra moisture. I enjoy using it when I get out of the shower and I am getting ready for bed at night. I sleep with it on and wake up with nice soft skin. Finally for my nails, I tend to use this around my cuticles during a manicure, or directly on my nails after I use a nail polish remover. The Argan Oil just helps nourish my hair, skin and nails.

This Argan Oil has hardly any scent, which I really like. It soaks into the skin very quickly and leaves no greasy residue. A little goes a long way which is fantastic as well!

Overall I am very pleased with this brand of Argan Oil. It works well, and it is helping my hair, skin and nails look their best!

Most of you who follow me regularly know that I am obsessed with anything skincare related. I like taking good care of my skin in hopes that it will pay off down the road. I was recently introduced to the NeoCell Beauty Bursts Soft Chews, and I have been adding them as apart of my daily supplement routine. 

If you are not familiar with the NeoCell Beauty Bursts Soft Chews, they are a dietary supplement that contains 2,000 mg of Collagen, as well as Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C. These are suppose to help your skin, hair and even your nails!  These are gluten free, soy free and palm oil free.

I have been taking 2 chews a day for a month now, and the bag lasted me for exactly 30 days. The flavor that I tried is the Fresh Mint Chocolate. First I will say that the flavor is not the best. I actually really don't like it at all. To me the flavor is a bit overwhelming and too much. The chocolate flavor is nice, but it is over powered by the mint. The chew starts of very hard, then it slowly softens. 

Over the past month of using this supplement, I have noticed a few changes so far. I have noticed that my dry skin is no where near as dry as it used to be. It is coming into winter time where I live, and it wrecks havoc with my skin. However this supplement seems to be helping me combat the harsh cold and it's effects on my skin. I have also noticed the biggest difference with my nails. The growth I have experienced while using this has been, well, insane! They are also a lot stronger and not as brittle as they once were. I am very pleased with that!

Overall I am happy with these. I am beyond pleased with what it has done with my nails! Perhaps if I continued on with these for another month I might see more results with my skin.

Professional Makeup Brush Set by Kirei Cosmetics | Review

I am what you would call a makeup junkie, a lover of all things beauty related. I know that having quality tools to apply your products is the key to getting the best application and flawless results. For the past couple of weeks I have been using the Kirei Cosmetics Professional Makeup Brush Kit exclusively to apply my makeup. So let me share with you my thoughts.

I will start off by saying that in my current brush collection, I have a range of brands, from high end luxury to drug store to dollar store. The application that these gave me was right on par with my high end and drug store tools. For the face brushes, the stippling brush was by far my favorite. It made my liquid foundation apply on smoothly, and it let me stipple which gave a nice flawless airbrush effect. The blending brush for the eyes was also another favorite of mine. It blended out my eye shadows beautifully, and let me create a nice even gradient. The brushes are synthetic, however they are super soft. I do quite like that they are 100% vegan and also 100% cruelty free. This set includes 10 brushes: powder brush, foundation brush, concealer brush, angled contour / blush brush, eyebrow brush, eyeliner brush, smudger brush, stippling brush, blending brush, and a eye shadow brush.

Another thing that I like about this set is the holder that it comes in. It is very elegant and can turn into a 2 piece brush holder which is fantastic.

I have washed these brushes and only experienced minor shedding with the larger brushes, very minimal shedding with the smaller brushes. 

This is a great kit for someone starting off with makeup who needs a good brush set, makeup artists who can add this to their kits, or someone like me who is a makeup lover who has a brush obsession!
