Are you looking for a new fragrance for the modern gentleman? I found a new cologne that I am going to give Rex for his Birthday.  It is Stetson Caliber.  I really like the scent and I think he will too.  Or maybe I like the write up about Stetson Caliber.

“He still exists—the rare man of honor with a dash of true grit.  It may seem old-fashioned, but recent research shows that most people think chivalry is still important today: a survey taken this summer reveals its value. Living by a code of modern gallantry, he draws on time-tested values that fit perfectly in today’s world. He is the ultimate “modern cowboy”, who builds, protects, provides, and stands steadfast in any situation. This quintessential American spirit is distilled in new Stetson Caliber.”

I must say my Rex kind of fits the description. He always opens and shuts my car door.  Doesn’t mind carrying in most of the grocers and always walks on the side closes to the traffic. The other day he even came out with of the house with an umbrella when I came home from work and it was raining out. He can be such a sweet man.

I also really like the scent of The Stetson Caliber fragrance it opens with notes of sparkling lime and black pepper. The warm heart of the scent contains nutmeg and violet leaf. The Earthy Oakmoss adds depth of character, while the true star is the woody red sequoia note. Embodying the subtle vigor and fervor of the modern cowboy, the Red Sequoia tree gives the fragrance a sexy, masculine finish. ($19, mass retailers).

If you are looking for a great stocking stuffer or gift The Stetson Caliber would be a great idea! You can find it nationwide at stores like Walmart and Target.

Well I found that Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream is easy to use you just spread over the area were you want to reduce  unwanted bumps and lumps.  After using for awhile you should feel your skin looking and feeling tighter, smoother and younger.  You should use twice daily.  What I noticed was a refreshing scent of mint, green tea and lime.  Once rubbed in their was little fragrance. I also like how fast the cream absorbed into my skin.

I also liked is that Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream was from from harsh chemicals such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates.  I really have not used the product long enough to see any results – but I do like the way it makes my skin feel very soft and do plan on using it for awhile longer.

If you are interested in purchasing Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream you can purchase it on the link below from Amazon.com.

I have been looking for something that helps my hair and nails grow stronger.  I recently read that Biotin can be used to help promote hair growth, healthy skin and strong nails. Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. Biotin assists in various metabolic reactions involving the transfer of carbon dioxide. It may also be helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level.  Biotin is often recommended as a dietary supplement for strengthening hair and nails, though scientific data supporting this outcome are weak.  It is a coenzyme and a B vitamin, also known as Vitamin H.

I was happy to try Biotin 5000 MCG from Eu Natural.  I have only been taking Biotin for a couple weeks and already can feel that my hair is stronger.  It looks a bit shiner and fuller.  I can also tell my nails are getting stronger.  In the past when I let my nails grow they are easy to bend and often tear along the sides.  They feel like they are stronger even after this short use.

If you would like to purchase Biotin 5000 MCG from Eu Natural you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com.

aschWhen I was little the Schwan’s ice cream truck use to stop at our house and my Mom would buy a couple of 5 quart pails of ice cream.  We were able to have ice cream a couple nights a week as a bedtime snack.  Back then ice cream was about all that Schwan’s had. Now they have lots of items.  They provide superior frozen foods with convenient home delivery. Their foods are flash frozen at the peak of freshness and flavor. Choose from USDA Choice meats, wild-caught seafood, flavorful skillet meals, Grade A fruits and vegetables, plus our heritage ice cream, distinctive desserts and much more.

I tried a couple items from Schwan’s was Butcher’s Cut Boneless Pork Loin Chops.  What a great value!  There were six individually wrapped chops.  First I have to say they were wrapped well and I had no fear of frost IMG_0720(1)bite on the meat. I was able to just take out what I needed for a meal.   One night Rex grilled them and they turned out so moist and good. They are something I would purchase again. IMG_0721(1)

I also bought some Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.  Rex could eat ice cream 3 times a day and never get sick of it.  He likes it plain, with chocolate or with soda for a float.  He said that this ice cream had a lot of flavor and you could see the vanilla specks in the ice cream.  There are so many more flavors of ice cream now days than what there was in the past.

The nice thing about Schwan’s Home Service is that you can go online and order what you want.  Then you can pick the day and time you want the delivery to come.  I picked a time I knew I would be home and my order was there when they said.  Our delivery driver was very nice.  You can also have them leave your delivery at your door when you are gone – either they provide a bag and packing to keep it cold (at a price) or you can leave a cooler with ice packs in it out and they will put your products in it.

suave hub 1My hair is long and curly.  So I am always looking for tips on how to keep it manageable.  One problem I have is when I sleep it really gets in the way so what I have learned is to put it in a ponytail before I go to bed.  That way it doesn’t get tangled or pulled because someone is leaning on it.  I also have a problem of my hair blowing all over when I drive with the windows open it would get in my eyes and get snarls in it. I now always keep some of those claw clips stashed in my car so I can just pin it up. Then I just take the clip out when I arrive at my destination and my hair looks good.

Last month I posted regarding a contest from Sock It to Me.  They announced the winner earlier this week.  See the three winners above.  Which one do you like best? This was the 10th year that they had the contest. Here is a bit more about winners.

The first place winner is 19-year-old Emily Mackey from San Luis Obispo, CA, for her design “Fir Sure.” She will receive $5,000 and have his/her design manufactured in Sock It to Me’s collection next Fall. Second place goes to Emily Dumas from Beverly, MA, for her design “Space Kitty,” and the third place to Cathie Gabe from Winterville, GA, for her design “The Rampage”.  The second and third place winners will receive $1,000 and $500, respectively.

This year’s Design-A-Sock Contest was one of the most successful in the history of the company. Sock It to Me received a total of 4,681 entries from artists located in more than 60 countries around the world including Iran, India, Italy, Poland, Malaysia, Egypt, Iraq, Iceland and more. The artists ranged in talent and age, with the oldest entrant at 82 years old and the youngest at 3 years old. Some of the fun design trends submitted included aliens, giraffes, snakes, ice cream, popcorn, pizza and watermelon, all of which will provide great inspiration for Sock It to Me’s future collections.

The contest was held from September 5 – 26, and sock fanatics from around to world were invited to express their passion by submitting a unique sock design for a chance to win cash and products – and have their design manufactured on a sock. The company promoted the campaign through a Facebook campaign with fun and quirky advertising. The Mayor of Portland even announced a proclamation declaring October as Official Sock Month in celebration of the contest and Sock It to Me’s 10th birthday. A panel of celebrity judges including popular music group MisterWives, comedian Brian Posehn and a famous cat named Lil Bub helped narrow down the submissions, while fans ultimately selected the winning design by casting their ballot on Facebook from October 3-10.

I like to entertain and have people over for meals and now with the Holidays coming I have a couple nice dinners planned.  One of the things I like is to use my nice china but I really didn’t have any serving utensils.  Recently I received this Lyndon 2-Piece Carving Set from Reed & Barton. It is perfect for cutting a roast, turkey or what ever I am serving.  I like the classic beaded design on the handle.  Both the fork and knife are very durable and made out of 18/10 stainless steel.  The Carving Fork measures 10 inches in length and the Carving Knife is 13 inches in length.

I also received a 2-Peice Salad Serving Set from Reed & Barton in the same beautiful Lyndon style.  The 2-Piece Salad Set is perfect for tossing mixed greens as well as serving grilled vegetables.  The set includes Salad Fork and Salad Serving Spoon. Measures 10 and 1/2 inches in length. I love using them to serve salads and grilled vegetables.

I love using both of these sets ~ My meals look more put together. I like that they are easy to clean and dishwasher safe.  They also come in Elegantly boxed so a perfect wedding or hostess gift.  If you would like to purchase either set you can go HERE on Reed & Barton. Kaisy1

One of my favorite treats is going to Jamba Juice. I just love their drinks.  Since I am allergic to Strawberries I like that they will customize my drink for me.  In the past I have always thought of Jamba Juice more of a summer place to go. This weekend in Oregon they are introducing  freshly-squeezed juices and made-to-order Energy Bowls which are both delicious and a perfect fit for the fall season.

To celebrate the latest menu items, the first 50 guests in line, one per household, will receive one complimentary 12 oz. juice or an Energy Bowl on Saturday, October 18 at the following locations.

Location                           Address                                                                            Store Opens

Beaverton                          14700 S.W. Murray Scholls Dr, Suite 103                    7:30 a.m.

Bend                                   63455 N Highway 97 Suite 72                                         7:00 a.m.

Corvallis                            1580 NW 9th Street, Suite 105                                        7:45 a.m.

Eugene                              1005 Green Acres Rd., Suite 106A                                  7:00 a.m.

The expanded line of fresh-squeezed juices continues Jamba Juice’s rich tradition of incorporating high nutrient and on-trend ingredients, and now includes whole foods such as kale, beets, apples, oranges, and chia seeds, that are blended together.  The unique process of juicing and blending allows for whole foods, including the nutrient-rich pulp and skin, to be incorporated into the juice.

Already receiving wide praise, Jamba Juice’s new made-to-order Energy Bowls are packed with flavor and in six different varieties including Acai Berry Bowl, Acai Primo Bowl, Berry Bowl, Chunky Strawberry Bowl, Mango Peach Bowl and Tropical Acai Bowl. The Energy Bowls feature a blend of whole fruits, soy milk and Greek yogurt topped with an assortment of toppings and fresh fruit.

I am always looking for a good pair of tweezers.  I think it is my age but I always get one or two dark hairs that need to be tweezed on my chin.  I hate that!  I also once in awhile will get a grey hair in my eyebrow.  I found these tweezers on Amazon.com they have a great grip and are stainless steel so they will not rust.  I like that they are slanted makes it easier to use.

Here are a few things I like about this pair of Slant Tweezers from Majestic Bombay:

  • Precision tips
  • Stainless steel
  • Slant tip
  • Non-slip grip
  • Perfect tension
  • Salon design

I think the Majestic Bombay Stainless Steel Eye Brow Slant Expert Tweezer is a great product and one I am glad to have in my collection of beauty products.  The bright pink colors make it easy to find in my drawer when I am looking for it.

If you are looking for a new tweezers you can buy the Majestic Bombay Stainless Steel Eye Brow Slant Expert Tweezer on the link below from Amazon.com.
