Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review #oldfactory

Disclaimer: The product described below was provided free of charge to facilitate the review. All opinions are my own.

When I was given the opportunity to try Old Factory Candles and provide my opinion, I was elated. I love candles and now that I do not have small children running through my house, I can place them anywhere that I want...providing it is safe.

That means that I can set candles in my bathrooms, my kitchen, my family room...where ever I want.
When given the opportunity to pick a scent, I chose the Fall Harvest Collection that contains one of each of Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry,  and Autumn Leaves. I thought the fall scents might get me into a holiday spirit.

The candles arrived and I was very excited to pop open the box to smell each one. They all smelled like anyone would think. The one that caught me off guard was the Autumn leaves. It really smelled just like leaves! I thought that the name was going to be for a mix of fall scents. Nope, it smells just like the name implies.

The candles burned clean at all times. Since they are in their own small jars, it was easy to blow out the candle when I was done and place the lid on the jar to prevent any smoke from lingering. My only disappointment was in the size of the candles. These are really not any bigger than a votive candle. They are in cute little jars with lids and would be very easy to break up to give as individual gifts.

Alpha Garcinia Cambogia Review #alphapills

Disclaimer: I received the product described below free of change to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

If you are like everyone else, you probably carry a few extra pounds around with you. We are always searching for the easiest way possible to drop those extra pounds. I know I don't want to change the way I eat, and I certainly do NOT want to exercise. Yuck!

Alpha Garcinia Cambogia has allowed me to just take a pill to simplify my weight loss. I have always been resistant to taking diet pills due to the fact that they make me feel horrible. Alpha Garcinia Cambogia did not make me feel like  my heart was going to jump put of my chest, did not make me feel like I was going to starve to death, and it certainly did not turn my insides upside-down. 

All in all, While taking the Alpha Garcinia Cambogia pills for two weeks, I lost a quick 8 pounds. Now I know that seems small, but it was only 2 weeks time AND I did not do anything else. That means no exercise, not change in diet...nothing!

Manufactures information on the 100% Alpha Garcinia Cambogia Extract

Garcinia Cambogia is extract from the South East Asian fruit Garcinia Gummi-Gatta, part of the tamarind family. It is an all natural extract shown to suppress your appetite, burn fat while maintaining your lean muscle mass, and increase fat loss 3 times more than diet and exercise alone. Garcinia Cambogia has also been proven to increase serotonin levels and has all of these positive effects without negative side effects.

What Does Garcinia Do?

If your body does not use carbohydrates as energy, they are converted into fat and stored in the body as fat cells. Alpha Garcinia Cambogia stops the enzymes in your body from turning carbohydrates into these fat cells. It also assists your body in converting fat into glycogen, a readily available source of energy for your body to use. Other positive benefits of Garcinia are increased serotonin levels which can positively affect many aspects of the users lives including mood, sleep, and satiety.

What Sets Alpha Garcinia Cambogia Apart From The Rest?

Each capsule in Alpha Garcinia Cambogia is 1000MG of Garcinia Cambogia, compared to only 500MG in competitors capsules. This means you only need to take one capsule per dose and get double the effect per capsule. This makes taking Alpha Garcinia Cambogia a pleasure and increases the effects dramatically when compared to other low quality competitors on the market.

Display-Sheet Makeup Bag Review #displaysheetbag

As women we always want to be prepared at all times. But it can be difficult carrying all of our make-up around with us. Most of us have a cute little make-up bag that we tuck everything into to take with us. Then we pull out what we need as we need it. What I have found over time is that I have to dig to the bottom of my make-up bag to find that one little eyeliner or lipstick. Or sometimes I have found myself dumping the entire contents on the a counter someplace to access the items that I need.

With the display-sheet make-up bag you will not have that issue. You can place all of your make-up inside the bag and quickly close it up. When you are ready to use an item in the bag, you just loosen the strap and pull out the display sheet. All of your items are easily seen and and accessible.

Traveling anytime soon, this make-up bag will be a lifesaver. No need to scatter everything all over a hotel room counter. In a hurry. Left your display sheet and drop the contents right back into the bag, pull the drawstring and go.

One additional feature that worked out well for me was the nylon material that the bag is made up of. Over the years I have learned that I am an absolute klutz. The nylon material made my spills easily cleaned up with just a damp cloth. No need to stare at ugly make-up stains on your cute bag any more.
