July Loot Crate-Villains Review

  If you missed the last review I did for the May Loot Crate you can check that out HERE. Since then I have become huge fans of some of the gamers that were featured in the box and I couldn't be more thrilled!

   This month though they are focusing on DC Villains! I don't think the squeal I made when I opened my box was heard by normal human ears, but you can bet my dog wasn't feeling it. The box alone on the inside is absolutely amazing! Made to look as if the Joker has scribbled on the inside of the box with a black marker, it is definitely fun to see.

      The first thing on the top of the box was a shirt. I have yet to see a shirt they have come out with that I haven't liked and this one was no exception. At first glance it looks like a simple Joker shirt, but Loot Crate loves taking it a step further and mashing together two things into one and it is actually not the Joker at all, it's Loki! Loki has taken on the Jokers persona in this awesome black screen printed shirt. It has amazing colours and he even decided to change his name to Joki just to get into character a little more. It's a super soft shirt and one I am
proud to have in my collection.
      The next out of the box was in the same vein as the first. It appeared to be posters and I was correct! It was two 8x10 rolled posters of Harley Quinn and the Joker. I absolutely love how they are in two different styles. Harley having more of a realistic/painted look and the Joker looking very sinister and if you look closely you can see he is actually made out of bats! I am in love with these and cannot WAIT to pick up some frames to put these on my wall! I have always been a huge fan of the Joker and I can't get over how amazing these two posters are!
      Next, Loot Crate loves adding some really fun smalls to their boxes. This
month was no different. The most fun being the pair of Deadpool socks. Hilarious and practical, they are now my favorite pair of socks. Also included is an amazing Bowser propaganda magnet that I immediately placed on the fridge. I grew up on Mario starting on the original Nintendo and Super Nintendo as did most people around my age, so this was a true treasure in my eyes. 
     What would a villains box be without the true villain Darth Vader? I am a key chain hoarder and I am enthralled by the rubbery Darth helmet key chain I received this month!
      Another fantastic item included was a dvd documentary about the super villains of DC Comics. This looks and sounds amazing and I am waiting on the opportunity for my brother to have some free time so we can watch it together.
      Finally the gem of the box is actually the Loot Crate exclusive 1st edition of the Rocket Racoon Comic. This is something I plan on holding on to for a long time. I haven't had the opportunity to watch the movie Guardians of the Galaxy yet but I cannot WAIT to see it! 
     And What Loot Crate wouldn't be complete without the button of the month featuring the image on the front of the information catalog sent in the box with Darth, Deadpool, and Harley Quinn. This entire box was all win in my eyes and I can't wait to see what they come out with in the future!
      If any or all of this intrigues you then you should check out Loot Crate!

BEDTIME BLISS Sleep Mask, Ear Plugs & Carry Case Review

    Sleep is an important part of life. Without sleep your health can physically decline. If you are a light sleeper like I am you find that you may have a lot of trouble with sleeping after the sun has risen. Or maybe you have a partner who likes to read in bed at night, or watch television before bed. All of these things can disrupt your sleep cycle.
    Regular cloth sleeping masks can sometimes irritate your eyes because as your eyes move under the sleep mask your lashes brush on the fabric. This can be very unsettling and even slightly painful after a while.
    I have tried another brand of sleep mask intended for heating an cooling and it eventually lost it's shape and the thin elastic band has stretched to a point where the mask is now no longer usable. 
     I was very happy when I first received the Bedtime Bliss sleep mask as I seen it was made out of a super light contoured foam. The elastic strap was wide and attached with velcro in the back allowing you to re position to make it as tight or as loose as you need to fit.
   I was absolutely thrilled with how well it blocked out the light without impeding on my breathing and I loved that I could make it as snug as I needed but there are a few downsides.
    I am not sure if it just mine or if they are all sewn this way or I just have high ears. (weird right?) but when putting the mask on I have to pull the strap down over my ears or it digs in and doesn't block out all the light coming in from under the mask at the bottom around my nose. Also be aware this velcro is really good velcro and have had to battle it a few times when it became stuck in my extremely long hair. Aside from those two small issues I have been using it every night for almost two weeks and have loved every minute of it.
      The light foam doesn't trap in a lot of heat so it doesn't feel overly hot on your face and the mask is easily washable.
       The ear plugs that come with the mask are just icing on the cake if you have trouble sleeping in a noisy room. They are a traditional memory foam style plugs in a nice black fabric drawstring bag so you never have to wonder where you put them!
       It's a fantastic set and it is well worth the money if you need the extra help. I am a daytime napper and it works wonders for that as well! You will definitely get your money worth with how often you will be using this mask!

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

Surpahs Digital Body Scale Review

         No one likes watching their weight, but sometimes it is a necessity. Medical issues, overweight, dieting, or working out there is always a reason to keep track of the numbers. Though the numbers are just numbers and it is more to do with health sometimes it is something that can't be passed up. If you have to monitor your weight why not do it in a fun way?
     Surpahs Body Scale is the MOST FUN scale I have ever seen in my life! Not only is it absolutely sleek in design and super simple to use. The no muss no fuss scale also comes in a variety of fun colours!  I happened to choose a beautiful bright blue shade but you can also pick it up in white, pink, green, or red! At the moment I do not know if the red and green is available but you won't be sorry no matter the shade as it is perfectly adorable in any colour!
        The scale itself has a tempered glass platform and a high precision strain gauge sensor system. This allows the scale to measure up to 400 pounds. This is not something you find often, especially for scales this small.
         One of my favorite things about this scale is the back of the scale has a simple button that switches between kilograms and pounds and there is no tap to display before you step on the scale. All you have to do is set it and forget it until it's time to use the scale!
        The scale itself is incredibly small. This makes it great for storing in a place where there is little fear of stubbing toes or tripping over the scale. For someone as clumsy as I am, this is a fantastic feature. The only downside to the portability and the small size of this scale is it is probably not suitable for people with larger feet. Though my feet do hang off the ends of the scale, as long as you stand still (don't rock) on the pressure sensors then it gives you a perfect readout every time. My brother who has much larger feet than I do was able to use the scale with no problems whatsoever. So as long as you are careful how you stand on the scale, regardless of your foot size you shouldn't have a problem!

Surpahs Digital Kitchen Scale Review

       If you are a person who has to watch what they eat or likes to have a kitchen scale on hand for measuring while baking this may be the one for you! This easy to use scale has a sleek, stylish, modern, contemporary design, large magic lens LED display, and 4 high precision weigh sensors to support accurate measurements.
 The scale is a beautiful stainless steel that will fit with any stainless modern kitchen decor, or if you find it doesn't fit the aesthetic of your kitchen or you are at a loss for counter space it is small enough to hide away in any drawer. All you need to do is pull it back out and place it on a level flat surface to use it again.
        It only takes 4 AAA batteries which is fantastic, but is made better by the fact that they are included! The screen even has a low battery indicator so you always know when it's time to replace them.
         The touch screen display has a UNIT conversions and TARE function so you can measure just about anything. No longer will you have to struggle if your recipes call for something measured by weight, fluid ounces, grams, or milliliters. It will measure anything up to 11 pounds.
          With 100% guaranteed product satisfaction, and 2 year manufacturer warranty they want to make sure you are completely happy with how your scale works for you and that says a lot about them as a company!
           This may not be the first kitchen scale I have reviewed but I am definitely in love with this one! The look of this digital kitchen scale is absolutely stunning and something I don't mind having displayed on my kitchen counter.

Surpahs Bamboo Cutting Boards Review

     If you are anything like I am, you love being in the kitchen. Everyone should love the kitchen, that's where the food is! One of my favorite pastimes is watching cooking shows and learning all I can about cooking so I have the knowledge to whatever I want in the kitchen.
   One of the staples in the kitchen that you should have is a good set of cutting boards. Most people tend to go with the big heavy butcher block cutting boards, and though those look really fantastic they can be a bit of a pain. They are bulky, heavy, hard to clean properly and if you aren't careful with them they will probably break a toe if you manage to accidentally drop one.
         Surpahs has actually come out with a pretty fabulous set of bamboo cutting boards. They are ultra thin and composed of 3 layers of high quality eco friendly bamboo that is a solid, thinner, lighter design  made to prevent warping, cracking, and splitting. The boards are even knife friendly to help protect your blades integrity.
         They come in three different sizes, small, medium and large size (8", 11" and 13"). This gives you the option to choose the size board for what you are working on. Cutting up vegetables for a soup? Use the larger board! Need a small work surface to chop up a little bit of onion? Use the smallest! The best part about the bamboo is they absorb less moisture than traditional hardwoods and it resists odor and bacteria! All you have to do is wash them by hand with warm soapy water and dry. And if you want to protect the life of your bamboo products, apply mineral or vegetable oil to the surface after each use.
         The cutting boards are so small they barely take up any space and the holes on the boards allow you to hang them up. If you don't want to put them on your walls they can easily fit into any drawer or between appliances on your counter top or even on a bookshelf. It really is one of the best sets of cutting boards you could buy.

599 Fashion Clothing Review

     If there is one thing I love more than anything it's a bargain. What better thing to find great prices on than awesome, cute clothes? Sometimes it can be tough because one outfit at most places will easily run you between $50 and $100. This doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room for accessories, or extra fun pieces. What if I told you there was a website where everything was $5.99 or less? it's true!
      599Fashion is a fantastic website that has everything from regular sized clothing, to plus size as well as shoes, accessories, jewelry and more. It is warehouse direct shopping with limited quantities and free returns and exchanges. If you like something though, act fast because it just may sell out before you have the chance to pick it up if you wait too long.
     Don't think for one second it is just for women though, they also carry boys and girls kids items AND men's clothing! There really is something for everyone.
     I had the opportunity to choose a few items and I was beyond thrilled with the quality of the pieces I received. I have found some of the best discount clothing pieces I have ever seen!
     I picked out a fantastic teal animal print shirt that was a relatively thick but very soft fabric in a tank top. It had a lot of stretch to it but the best part was the deep V lace panel on the back of the shirt. It gave the shirt a little extra sass without being too revealing and the lace is holding up really well. I have had no issues with the lace tearing or anything yet and I have been really rough with the shirt so far.
     The second piece I picked out was really gorgeous. A simple navy blue dress from Faded Glory with an elastic waistband, keyhole top and long tied bow in the front. The dress hits right around my knees. I love the way it fits but the best part is it is perfect for wearing as is, or with layering. I plan on redesigning this dress with some fantastic fishtail action so that when it drapes it has a lot more movement.
   What's a new outfit without a new pair of shoes? Just in time for summer, what is better than a fantastic pair of t-strap sandals? A gorgeous braided look to the straps covered in a black glittery shine these sandals are sure to catch the eye. They are fitted with a short stacked heel and gold accents leaving these capable of being worn with a multitude of outfit options. They have an adjustable strap to make sure they fit perfectly as well!
        The next piece I picked out was actually my favorite! I have not owned a pair of fun leggings before but I think now I may be hooked. The leggings are a bright shiny blue from ShoSho. I am genuinely surprised that these were available for only 5.99. They are on the sheer side but they are fantastic to wear under dresses and extra long shirts like I planned. They feel incredibly well made and I don't feel there is an issue with them ripping or tearing or running like tights. I am a huge fan and I would love to own several more in different shades!
   Last but not least I found this gorgeous necklace calling my name! It matched the teal leopard print tank top perfectly. With beautiful dark green crystal style drop  beads mixed with thin silver swooping chains it really is a fantastic piece.
     With an adjustable chain to fit as tight or as loose as you like it gives you options to wear it as you feel comfortable. What I didn't realize until after I received it was it actually came with matching earrings as well!
        There really is just about anything you can imagine on this site and I'm sure you would easily be able to find something you like. I absolutely loved all the pieces I picked out and it was all between $25-$30 for everything! Just because it was cheap clothing doesn't mean it was cheaply made!
