Review: Santa Medical Blood Pressure Monitor

This is a review of the Santa Medical Blood Pressure Monitor BW-210. I've never owned a blood pressure monitor that you use on your wrist. My grandmother owned one though and I remember trying her's on and loved that it was user friendly. This Santa Medical bp monitor is portable and convenient, has a display of the date and time, a large LCD display, stores up to 60 memory sets and it has a low battery warning to let you know when to change batteries. It came with 2 AAA batteries, the monitor and a hard shell case to keep your monitor in. 

It's so simple to use and you don't have to worry about plugging it in anywhere. You can take this with you wherever, whenever you need to. It's a great item to have around the house to monitor your blood pressure. The only negative that I can really think of is that it's a little difficult to put the bottom battery into the compartment but other than that, it works great and does what its supposed to do. They're currently selling these on Amazon for $19.95, regularly $59.95.

Review: Aloe Vera Gel by Lalune Naturals

Using aloe vera gel for me has always been directly from the plant itself for its healing properties. Aloe vera gel is used for razor burns, eczema, sunburns or simply as a daily moisturizer. 

The Lalune Naturals aloe vera gel is grown and produced in the USA and it's fragrance free. It comes with a cap and also a dispensing pump so you can choose which way you want to dispense this out. The aloe gel is not thick. It's on the thin side and you don't need too much of it. If you use too much, your hands or whatever you apply it to will be quite sticky. It is pretty thin and 'runny' as you can see. It was nice to try this out but I don't see myself using this on a daily basis.

Review: Love and Blessed August box


For the month of August, Love + Blessed's subscription box theme is 'Patience'. On the encouragement card, we learn that more patience = more peace! 

This is the 'Patience' sticker that says, "Use it before you lose it". Oh my word. How true is that statement?! It's something I need to think of before I get all flustered and when I feel like I'm starting to lose patience.

On our mini poster, it states, "You only need enough LIGHT for the step that you're on." What a nice reminder to not get ahead of ourselves but focus on where we're at this moment and not rush to get to the next step.

Here's our Scripture on patience and it comes from the book of Ephesians. "Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love. Ephesians 4:2 NLT I am reminded that I need to be patient with others and show them the grace and love that Jesus would show.

 {Both sides shown of the card}

We also received a pretty light bulb necklace to remind us that you have to have patience and take one moment, one step at a time. Love it!

As delicate as these little dried flowers are, so we should be towards our patience with others as God Himself is patience with us.

Here is a look at everything that was in this month's box! If you would like to get a month to month, or a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription, you can order here: Love + Blessed. Give the gift of encouragement each month to a friend or family member for just $10. They'll be blessed and in turn, you'll be blessed as well! 

 Love + Blessed

Weight Watchers ice cream review

I recently had the chance to review some Weight Watchers ice cream products! Influenster sent me 2 FREE coupons to pick any two that I would like.

 I chose the 'Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars' and the 'Vanilla Round Ice Cream Sandwiches'. They have such a variety of ice creams to choose from but since I love dark chocolate, it was an easy pick when I chose the Raspberry ice cream bars! It was light and delish, no artificial sweeteners and no guilt about eating it! My family members got a hold of these and devoured them!

The vanilla ice cream sandwiches were really good as well! I used to love eating ice cream sandwiches and with a low fat one, that's come out by Weight Watchers, you can eat it and not feel like you shouldn't have it. My family loved these as well! 

I recommend these as a healthy option for substituting regular ice cream. 

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

SLIMQUICK Pure review

When I got accepted for the SLIMQUICK Pure campaign, I was so excited! I've been doing home work outs and I've eating healthier but I do need something to give me that extra boost to lose the weight! 


SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Mixed Berries Drink Mix is designed for women to help them lose 3 times the weight by addressing the 6 physical reasons women have trouble losing weight. 

SLIMQUICK Pure works to

-Increase Metabolism

-Reduce Appetite

-Boost Energy
-Reduce Excess Water
-Support Hormones
-Reduce Stress

When you taste our Mixed Berries flavour you won't believe it has 0 calories, but it does! You can pop a SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix packet into your water bottle, or stir one up when you need a tasty weight-loss boost! SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix packets are ready to go wherever you go!

Rest assured SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix contains natural ingredients like antioxidants, calcium, vitamin D and BioPure Green Tea™.

SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix has isolated the fat-burning component in green tea that speeds up your metabolism. It is called BioPure Green Tea™ and it has been shown in a published clinical study to help overweight women lose 3 times a the weight versus dieting alone, in just 13 weeks. 

I was surprised at how much the mixed berries flavor was so good! To use it, all you do is pour 1 packet of powder into a 16.9 oz bottle of cold water and stir until it dissolves. You take it with food and there are serving directions on how much to take from day to day. You should have a reduced calorie diet as well as a regular exercise program. 

I do have a hard time losing weight due to being Hypothyroid w/Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I've lost a few pounds and I'm going to continue taking the SLIMQUICK powder packets and see how things go and hope to lose some more weight while taking this product. I do recommend it as you would have nothing to lose but the weight itself. 

Here is their website and they do offer a 100% 30 day money back guarantee. If you've read up to here so far, awesome! I was given a $5 off coupon for my readers good till the end of the month! Give it a try, you'll LOVE it!

Disclosure: I received this product free in exchange for my honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products that I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. The opinions expressed above are my own. This post is sponsored by BrandBacker.
