My Opinion

The flat iron looks really cool and I just love the color. As soon as my niece arrived from school, we tried it right away. I like that the heating plates are made of ceramic. They heat up pretty fast and you can easily control it to your desired heat. The best feature of the Dolce Flat Iron is it allows you to personalize your settings to your desired style and hair type.







I did the half part of my niece's hair; the photos will show you the difference.





It didn't take me much effort to straighten up her wavy hair. I also tried it on my short hair and I didn't have a hard time using it.

Overall, I had fun using the flat iron. It's easy to use and you'll have gorgeous and straight hair in minutes. It automatically turns off when not in use and it comes with a nice case, so you can easily bring it along with you when you travel.

Facial Mask with Dead Sea Mud and Kaolin Clay {Review}


At my age, I still suffer from breakouts from time to time, but instead of treating it with acne products, I use mud masks and tea tree oil. Mud masks help clear my face and it makes me feel good that I am not applying a chemical laden treatment on my face. Today's discussion is about the Facial Mask with Dead Sea Mud and Kaolin Clay. I'm not familiar with Kaolin Clay, but apparently, it is rich in minerals and has a healing ingredient.



Product Description

- Fighting a daily battle with breakouts, blackheads and oily skin?
- Tired of wasting time, money and energy on useless products?
- Want to avoid harmful and toxic chemicals? - Tired of bad results - or no results at all?

WHO KNEW HOW POWERFUL AND BENEFICIAL CLAY AND MUD COULD BE!

* Rich in Antioxidants, Botanicals & Minerals that Soothe & Nourish All Skin Types
* Clarify & Tone Combination, Oily, Acne-Prone & Dry Skin
* Restore PH & Moisture Balance to Keep Your Skin Healthy & Hydrated

My Thoughts

The mud mask has a very nice citrus scent. Once applied, it has a cooling sensation that relaxes the skin instantly. It dried up quickly and after I've washed it, I felt the tightness of my skin, but it's soft and smooth as well. My skin feels refreshed. And just to try its moisturizing ability, I didn't apply a moisturizer after I've washed it off. Surprisingly, my skin felt well moisturized all day. I've used this twice within the week and already, my face started to get clear. The pimples are gone and the blemishes looked lighter.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the results I am getting. If you are looking for a more natural way to get rid of acne, blackheads and blemishes, this is a great product to try. It's made from all natural ingredients and it's gentle on the skin.

My SIL modeling for me.

Getting pregnant quickly


While it's very easy for many women to get pregnant, there are those who struggle to conceive.  If you are one of those who are having a difficult time, below are some tips.

Getting pregnant should be the most natural thing in the world, right? Well, it’s not always that simple. Many times, getting pregnant quickly becomes way more complicated than it should be. However, according to our friends at www.pregnancytips.org, there are a few things that you can do to make getting pregnant a little bit easier.

First of all, knowing when you ovulate is of the utmost importance because there are only a few short days each month when a woman can get pregnant. So, use an ovulation predictor kit, chart your basal body temperature, or pay attention to your cervical mucus to figure out when you are ovulating. Also, make sure that once you time ovulation you plan sex properly so that you are having sex at the right time. Some couples choose to have sex a couple of days prior to ovulation, since the sperm can live longer than the egg, and it can be ready and waiting. Your doctor can give you some other helpful hints and advice on getting pregnant quickly and easily.
