Dancing Along With My Funky Headphones!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

No matter what time of the day it is, whether I'm in a good mood or bad, music is my escape. I'm not much for bulky over-the-ear type of headphones... I'm more into the ear-bud type. So when I was contacted from the Headphone Kiosk to review their funky Coloud Marvel Wolverine Headphones, I knew right away that my partner would be all over these! Yes, he's a gamer, kind of a nerd... so they were right up his alley. If you're into anything Marvel comics, these babies are perfect for you. I've personally never watched or read any of the comics, however, I can appreciate the art that goes into them.

Relief For Back Pain!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

It's been quite a while since I've suffered with bad back pain. I guess that's due to me losing over 100lbs, however, now that I'm pregnant I'm probably going to have some back discomfort towards the end of my pregnancy. When I did suffer from back pain, I found it quite difficult to stand for a long period of time. How did I try to deal with it? Well, popping some pain killers helped... although I can't exactly do that now, as I don't want to harm my little angel.

I was contacted by a company called BodyRyzm LifeSciences to review their Qi Orthopedic Pillow. Originally when I received the package, I was slightly confused. I have a  bad habit of not reading instructions right away. So when I saw that the pillow was completely flat, I thought what a waste. It wasn't until my mother took a look at it and noticed the writing on the label that stated "Must read first"! Yes, I felt slightly retarded that I didn't notice it... I had though the pillow was broken! What's special about this pillow? Don't let the flat appearance in the beginning fool you... you're supposed to blow it up to the pressure that fits to your liking.

The no-water SOS hair cleanser for those who hate dry shampoo (Time: 5 minutes!)

Last minute dinner plans and hair that looks like crows could be breeding inside its murky depths? This happens to me at least once a month and since I hate dry shampoo (how does one ever get the gritty, dandruff-like stuff out of the strands?) it’s revival time for grandm’s 5-minute hair-pick-me-up. And it’s simple!

Take a sturdy hairbrush and force the bristles through an old stocking or panty hose. Brush your hair normally and watch all the icky stuff transfer from your scalp and strands on the fabric. When the cloth becomes dirty, remove it and replace with another piece and continue till hair is presentable. This is a true life saver!

Having Trouble Conceiving? Try the SpermCheck Fertility- A Home Fertility Test for Men!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I'm in my early 30's, and half of my friends are having kids or already started a family. I've had a miscarriage in the past, but haven't been successful having children until now. I don't have kids quite yet, however, I am pregnant. I'm farther along then I've ever been... I'm in my second trimester, and so far the baby appears to be healthy.

A little while ago when I was trying to get pregnant, I was doing pretty much everything I've read up on to help increase my odds. Since I have PCOS, a heart-shaped uterus, and 2 cervix's, I had it in my heart that I most likely would not be able to have children. Well, I'm happy to say that I've been blessed with a little angel... I'm so happy.

If you're someone who's been trying to conceive for some time, and haven't had any luck... there's many things that you can try. I was contacted by the company Spermcheck Fertility to test out their product.
