SIMON SWIPE™ Review

#IplayedHasbropaid #SimonSwipeChallenge I received a complimentary product.



Remember playing the classic memory game Simon?  Mix the classic game with today’s touch screen technology and you get the bold new SIMON SWIPE game! SIMON SWIPE showcases a new sleek design with hypnotic sounds & colors, flashing lights and game play featuring a smooth swipe action.

 The Simon Swipe game combines favorite elements of the classic game like colors, lights and sounds with today’s touch technology and “swipe” action to offer kids a bold new way to play.
 The first big change you’ll notice is the steering wheel-like design, which includes a place to hold your hands around the base. This makes it especially easy to play Simon Swipe’s new "Party" level, a multi-player feature where you can take turns passing the device back and forth. With flashing lights and the disco dance music it plays in between turns, the Party version is especially fun to play in the dark.

The game also comes with three other play options: Classic (no swiping), Extreme (both tapping and swiping) and Levels, which starts easy and builds in difficulty (up to 16 levels).
A very modern twist: touchscreen swiping.
 Instead of just remembering which colors to tap next, users will have to know when to swipe too.


I have found an excellent article that describes this game in the best detail on Mashable so go there to find out more!

Cassandra's Review-  I had fun times with my very first Simon. I can remember as a youth playing late at night or with a group of friends, trying to out do each other.  I was interested in trying the new updated game to see how it compares.  Well to me it is harder and I kind of miss pressing the buttons.  Today's youth would probably disagree. I know that my older children love it, especially since they never had the honor of trying the original game. This is something you must try at least once!

Cassandra's Review-  I like that there are different sizes available and ways to trim them to fit should you need to. The boxes I received complimentary came with a 1 and 2 month supply. They are latex and drug free which is great because sometimes latex can make me feel itchy and uncomfortable.  The product sticks well on the skin.  It is now available over the counter. They do have an expiration date as well. I see that they are made in the USA. Do not use these on open wounds. The product is not sterile and keep out of the reach of children especially ones that like to use regular band aids even when they do not need them like my younger ones. 






InstaNatural Age Defying Moisturizer Cream Review

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

Youth Express Age-Defying Moisturizer is a must and should be part of your daily regiment. There are just too many active ingredients to list here..but suffice to say that everyone on our team uses this moisturizer and we swear by it. 

Reduces Apperance of Fine Lines, Wrinkles & Other Signs of Aging
Moisturizes the Skin Deeply From Within
May be used as an all around face treatment + as an under eye treatment
Get better tone and complexion
Regain the brightness and glow lost with age.

Cassandra's Review- The product is cool to the touch. I like that it is not slimy and blends in with ease. You do not need a lot to get the result you desire. I am sure not everyone will have the same results as we are all different and use other products that can cause this to not react well.  I would suggest trying this alone for a while before adding or mixing products so that you can see the results purely. It can last a long time if used sparingly.  It can help diminish the appearance of  dark circles, puffiness and saggy eyes.

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Argan + Coconut + Jojoba Oil Hair Treatment + Elixir Review

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

Organic Argan Oil Treatment for weak, limp and lifeless hair.
A rich blend of Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Oil, & Grapeseed Oil.
Use as leave in conditioner, overnight hair treatment or heat protectant.
Reduces damage and dryness on hair and scalp, removes frizz, adds instant shine and softness.

Our Argan Oil Hair Treatment formula is very unique and unlike others in the market.

It can be used  as a heat & damage protectant. There are no chemicals in this formula. It's made from 100% plant oils. Besides argan oil, this unique hair treatment formula is compromised of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil & Grapeseed Oil to name a few.

It's perfect for restoring that shine & luster that's lost over time. This needs to be part of your daily / weekly hair regiment! 

Cassandra's Review- The product is easy to use and has excellent results.  I would use it by itself without another conditioner to give it the max ability to work. It can work on all hair types as well.The best part is that the ingredients are not harmful and natural. Do not get in eyes or give to children. I like the smell as well. You will save a lot of money using this instead of going to the salon.

Master Lock Storage Security - No. 5422D Review

5422D
I received a complimentary product.
 Storage Security - No. 5422D
 Portable key safe provides secure storage of keys or access cards
Convenient push button locking mechanism in familiar alpha / numeric telephone keypad format
Set your own combination using up to 12 letters, numbers, or both
Large buttons for ease of use, even in low light conditions

 3-1/8" wide durable metal construction

Molded bumper and vinyl coated shackle prevents scratches to your door
Protective weather cover prevents freezing and jamming

 Key Safes
Protect the Home Front - A home that looks deserted makes an easy target for thieves. To keep your home looking occupied, set your lights on a timer and stop your newspaper and mail delivery so it doesn't build up while you are away. For added security, ask a trusted neighbor to check your home periodically and alert the police of any suspicious activity. Grant easy access to authorized visitors by storing your spare key in a portable key safe, like the Master Lock 5422D.

Cassandra's Review- I love the durability and safety of this product.  Master Lock is an excellent brand and their products are some of the best made.  You know just by the feel and design of this product that it is good. You will save money and time with a product like this. I know one time I had to break a window in my door because I did not have my key and no lock smith. This would have saved me a fortune and is worth the price. The buttons and mechanism is easy to operate and set.

 Redwood V-Trough Deck Planter Giveaway & Review
From



Holiday Contest and Sweeps recently had the pleasure to review
 24 inch Redwood planter are handcrafted with 100% thick redwood
lumber and will make a striking addition to any deck or patio and also
create a home for your plants or flowers. The craftsmanship that goes
into the embossed flower and leaf design give the planter a attractive

The craftsmanship that goes into the embossed flower and leaf design
give the planter a attractive edge and fine lines. Since redwood is resistant
to decay, they can be used with or without a insert. One great feature that
I like about them is the three drainage holes in the bottom that help provide
a proper moister level for you plants or flowers.

 The overall outside dimensions are 7.5" W x 28.5" L x 6.75" H.  The inside base of the planter is 24" long. The bottom of the planter measures 5.25" x 25.5" and will
 comfortably sit atop a 6" deck rail. 





This planter will add a touch of decor when used inside or outdoors. The
natural warmness of the wood brings a little something extra as a home
for your summer blooming perennials. Check out these amazing planters
and much more at QMT Windschimes website. You will be amazed at their
