HoLife Handheld Cordless Wet/Dry Hand Vacuum

LIGHT WEIGHT & PORTABLE - It's 1.7kg and ergonomically designed which will help you escape from fatigue clean.

LONG BATTERY LIFE & QUICK RECHARGING ABILITY - LIB battery can hold more energy per volume and confirmed to be Non-toxic, quicker recharge and no memory effect. With higher capacity, it can run constantly for 30mins which means you can clean your 150㎡ room on a single charge.

POWERFUL & CYCLONIC SUCTION - With 90W Motor, Multi-layer Filter, and Radial Cyclones, its powerful suctioning feature has the ability to vacuum up more dust.

QUIETER SYSTEM - Operation of a motor always has some noise; we made our system quieter while still able to keep its powerful suctioning capability on the Mechanical Damping Principles.

VERSATILITY & DRY WET AMPHIBIOUS - It is cordless allowing you free movement from room to room. Equipped with various attachments to make it clean well in corners, in your home or your car. It can easily clean dust, crumbs, pet hair, as well as liquids.


From the instant I opened the box, I was impressed with the quality of this hand held vaccuum. It is surprisingy light-weight and easy, even comfortable, to hold. Even though it is light, it is sturdy and strong, made with high quality parts and manufacturing. I love it's handsome appearance. 

The vaccuum arrived already assembled with a charging base, and three vacuuming tools. The company stands by its product with a comprehensive 2 year warranty. 

With nothing to put together, I simply set up the base and began to charge it up. A red light in the center of the vaccuum turns to green when it is ready to use. A simple flick of the switch and it started up. The suction was very strong. Although I don't have any pets, I have used the it on bathroom floors, carpeted stairs, couches, and in my car. In all circumstances, it was easy to use, made for quick work, and got into the nooks and crannies easily. I have used it to suck up a spill of iced tea and it worked beautifully. I then immediately took it apart to clean it. Very simple and quick. It has definitely made maintaining my home much easier. I hate having to drag my vaccuum up and down the stairs and trying to get deep into the 90 degree angles. So I add the crevice tool and wow, it makes vaccuming the stairs a cinch! I love it for this alone!   

I have been using this daily, especially because we have been eating a lot of fresh corn and I use to to suck up those stray strands of corn silk threads and pieces of husk that fall on the floor when you shuck. It seems to last a good half hour before it needs recharging.  

It does make some noise, but it I consider it very quiet compared to our old one. Because it is so handy and I use it all the time, I keep it in my laundry room. It is a standing base and does not need to be mounted on the wall. I like that better because that makes the charging base portable. It is perfect for camping trailers and motorhomes. I store the tools in a ziplock bag beside. 

I love its quality and durability. It's made cleaning so very simple and fast! It looks great, is ergonomically comfortable, and so very convenient. Definitely recommended!

Fem Jolie Professional Hair Straightening Brush

What a pleasure it was to open the box! The first thing that impressed me was the high quality of its manufacture. This is a salon quality product. The box contains:

1. Fem Jolie Straightening Brush
2. A velvety sleeve to store the brush in between uses.
3. A warranty support card and invitation to join the Fem Jolie VIP Club. It includes a step by step process to review the product too.
4. A comprehensive set of instructions that is easy to read and understand. It includes maintenance instructions.
5. A heat protective glove.

Ergonomically designed, the product is light-weight. When holding the brush in your right hand, the controls are strategically located beneath the thumb. The temperature controls can be set to either Celcius or Fahrenheit and the heat range can be set to reach 450 degrees Fahrenheit or 230 degrees Celcius. For thicker hair, the hotter temperatures are recommended. At the left side of the product, where your thumb will rest there is an on / off button and then + and - buttons to regulate the heat.

I have thick hair with slight curls. My preference is to let my hair drip dry and then use the brush to add body and straightening and style.

This is a salon quality brush, beautifully engineered, lovely to hold, and easy to use. Best of all, it is maintenance free. In between hair washes, I use it to quickly style and go. Iike this much better than a straightening iron as it does not flatten out my hair with a stringy look. Rather, the brush allows me to keep my body, control my unruly waves, and lets me style my hair to the degree I wish. Simply use and go! By far, this is my favorite hair tool - far superior to my other straighteners, blow dryers, and curling irons. Love, love, love, this brush.

The Music of Namaste Audio CD by Tim McAuley

You can now take the tranquility and calm of the Namaste Yoga soundtrack off the mat. The Music of Namaste features eleven full length compositions originally created for the television series. Over 70 minutes of instrumental music - all written to the rhythm of breathing. Use it for your own Yoga practice or just to find calm at the end of a long day. The Music of Namaste is composed and performed by Tim McCauley.


So relaxing, so soothing. The cover is so beautiful and definitely drew me to the CD. I listen to this audio CD in my vehicle and I play it on my laptop while I am working on my novel. The music is lovely and I love listening to it often. I have also transferred it into my cell phone as I can plug it in at night to help me fall asleep.  

There are 11 tracks entitled: Baha, Elevation, Exalted Warrior, The Circle, Jai, Lotusland, Awakening, Varanasi, Water Light, Heart Opening, and Riding the Wind. The titles themselves tell you how calming and uplifting the music truly is. One of my favourite CDs for relaxation.

Namaste Yoga (Season 2 the Complete Series) by Kate Potter

Continue your practice with Namaste Yoga: The Complete Second Season. Enjoy the same soothing narration, gorgeous vistas and calming music in 13 all new yoga sequences designed by master yoga teacher Kate Potter. Featured poses include Sage Pose, Pigeon Pose and Dancing Shiva. 

Features Include: 

  • Thirteen, 22 minute sequences.
  • Appropriate for beginner to advanced practitioners
  • Learn Plough Pose, Dancer's Pose, and Pigeon Pose
  • Hatha/Vinyasa style yoga

For a beginner like me, Yoga can be a little daunting. I did not know enough about the various types of yoga that are offered at my gym. The Namaste Yoga DVDs took all the guess work out of it. I am proud to say that I have all three seasons and the complete set. But for this review, I'll be discussing the second in series.

I admit that I am a big fan of the Namaste Yoga DVD workout videos which I originally discovered on TV. I am the type of person who enjoys many different activities from water jogging to the treadmill to Zumba, and step aerobics, and more.  So I like to dabble in yoga as it adds variety to my workouts and is great for helping me relax.  

Visually stunning, this DVD is filmed in beautiful surroundings. The background music is lush and soothing. The natural settings change to add visual stimulation. The narrator's voice is very pleasant, calming, and lovely to listen to. A group of lovely women demonstrate the poses and provide wonderful inspiration. The DVD also introduces mantras / meditation for the ultimate relaxation experience. 

There are 13 episodes of authentic yoga sequences which adds a great deal of variety. Each episode is 22 minutes long, so I find it quite easy to fit one or two sessions into my busy day. I often do one or more sessions according to my schedule or fitness level or energy level. 

Namaste Yoga is the best yoga fitness program I have found to date. I'm thrilled with all three of the DVDs in the series. So much variety, so beautiful to watch, so easy to do! Get all three seasons! Highly recommended!

HCF - Happy, Calm, Focused - An exciting new brain supplement!

Who doesn't want to be happy, calm, and focused throughout the day! This is one of my newest favourite things! And I'm excited about discovering the excellent company who makes it. So what exactly is HCF? The product description on Amazon says: 

HCF® Happy, Calm & Focused® is an original, pure and effective dietary supplement, considered one of the most exciting discoveries in brain supplementation in decades! The advantage HCF has over other brain supplements is that typical brain supplements rely on high dose '50 ingredients-in-1' glorified multi-vitamins or just herbs to artificially give your brain a lift, while HCF supports feeding your brain's own neurotransmitters with what it is 'suppose to have' - F&Q amino acids. These two powerful key amino acids are found in whole-food proteins like fish, milk, cheese and turkey. F&Q works by supporting the increase of "feel good" neurotransmitter levels responsible for helping you feel happy, calm and focused every single day. 

Anxiety and worrying runs in my family. I'm a writer and blogger with a big and busy Italian family in my life. I'm also an A-type personality with a high threshold for being a workaholic. So I was really excited about trying this product out. And I was thrilled with the results.

Like any supplement, it takes a few weeks for it to build up in your body and begin to take effect. All you do is take 3 capsules with 8 ounces of water 30 minutes before eating breakfast. In as little as three days, I found myself sleeping better at night and less stressed during the day. This new supplement makes me feel more serene and less rushed. Almost immediately, I noticed my sleep improve. I wake up less, or not at all, and I awaken refreshed in the morning. To tell the truth, and I know it sounds almost hard to believe, but I do have happy, happy thoughts now, a more positive outlook, even when things become hectic and difficult. and as for clarity, I find I can sit and concentrate on writing with fewer interruptions and for longer periods of times. In fact, because of this fabulous supplement, I have completely eliminated caffeine because I no longer need the boost. 

Even their website is impressive. You can find them at: They offer world-wide shipping and a fourteen day free trial. From the site, you can learn more about the product's history, what HCF is made with, and much more. You can also order product, buy a gift card for a friend, refer a friend to earn a free bottle, and keep track of your account and billing information. Their customer service division is wonderful and helpful. 

I am so very impressed with this product and have made it part of my morning supplement routine. I cannot rave about this product enough.
