RockBuds - Earbuds that Rock!

chicBuds - Earphones with Swarovski Crystals

Listening Never Looked So Good!

My family and I received the "Wings Like Eagles" from chicBuds to review. They feature a built-in retractable device that’s trendy and fashionable. The retractor allows for 5 stopping points and comes with a clip that helps prevent the cords from bouncing around.

As soon as I received the “Wings Like Eagles”, I plugged it into my computer. I listened to Michael W. Smith’s song “Above All”, it came in loud and clear. I had to lower the volume because it was louder than I expected. lol

When my husband came home, he tested the earphones too. He has some trouble with the retracting of the cords but quickly got a hang of it. I advise you to read the instructions first. The booklet comes with a simple and easy, 1, 2, 3 tutorial -- includes pictures and helpful tips for retracting the cords.

Classy Nail Files

Classy Nail Files

Wow! I am definitely in love with glamorous Classy Nail Files. No longer will I waste my money on the inferior emery boards and metal ones sold at the local department stores. I had two particular nails that often got snagged on fabrics or the bedding; even after I had filed them down. Ugh!

Thanks to Classy File Nails, I have been rescued. I know it may sound cheesy but I’m not fibbing. Your nails will thank you.

You will find a over 100 different crystal and hand-painted designs by local artists in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Classy File Nails sent me two samples to try out. I received the following:

* Vibrant Colors Green/Blue - Small size 3 ½” perfect for infants & small children; great for your purse or pocket.

* Hand-painted Crystal Blue Whale - Medium size 5 ½” most popular size

And they carry a Large size 7 ½” - Great for pedicures - Thicker and more coarse, great for feet - cracked heels, bunions, callous, and diabetics.

These double-sided files are easy to clean, just run under water! These files are not only eco-friendly and last forever(74% stronger than ordinary glass) but healthier than regular emery boards and metal files. These files are guaranteed to never wear out!

Classy Crystal Nail Files Facts & Features:

• All files are double-sided.
• Files can be sterilized with heat, autoclave, liquid and UV lighting.
• Files can be used on natural or artificial nails. Dipping the file in water while using on artificial nails is recommended.
• The filing surface is created out of the file body, thus it will never wear out.
• Gives nails a remarkably flawless edge that's free of rough spots. Using the file on a regular basis, chipping and peeling of the nail will be reduced.
• The files are hardened, making it 74% stronger than common glass. Because they are glass, care still must be used with the file.
• Environmentally friendly in construction and use

For quality, longevity and fabulous design, choose Classy Crystal nail files for the finish of a lifetime. See the FAQ section for more information. Are they dishwasher safe? Yes.

Classy Nail Files are sold in many gift shops, boutiques, spas, florists, Hallmark stores and hospital gift ships and pharmacies. This is an American made product too.

Enter for a chance to win a “Flawless Finish Spa Kit” at Classy Nail Files!

Butter Up & Do Double Duty with Body Systems' Natural Body Butters

BUTTER UP & DO DOUBLE DUTY with Body Systems' Natural Body Butters

I was excited to learn that Body Systems uses fresh and organic ingredients whenever possible from Fair Trade. Their butters are free of chemicals and contain no fillers. They do not test on animals. Their products are sold to many famous spas worldwide and are now available for personal home spas.

These body butter products are great for doing double, triple or even quadruple duty.

* Add sugar creating a healthy exfoliate
* Apply directly to your lips for sun protection
* Slather on body and hair
* Slip into a warm bath for deep moisturizing experience

I received the Olive Nut Butter to review for Body Systems it has a non-scented aroma, with a soft and creamy texture. You only need to apply a small amount to do the job -- non-greasy moisturizer.

About Olive Nut Butter:

Extracted from cold pressing olives, this soothing butter has natural fatty acids that replenish skin with a protective layer of moisture. It is creamy and full of natural vitamins, essential minerals and antioxidants-all healing elements for the skin.

Olive butter possesses all of the natural qualities of olive oil and is similar in feel to Shea butter. It has excellent spreadability and can be used as a massage butter.

Buy it: Olive Nut Butter 4 oz. $20/.25 oz. $2

Also available:

* AVOCADO BODY BUTTER: Creamy with excellent moisturizing properties & some natural sunscreen ability.
* COFFEE BODY BUTTER: Elegant & silky feel with slight coffee aroma.
* COCOA BODY BUTTER: Relieves skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
* OLIVE NUT BODY BUTTER: Contains essential fatty acids to promote youthful skin.
SHEA NUT BODY BUTTER: Ideal treatment for dry or aging skin.

Company History: Created in 2001 by Founder Teri Lang Patterson, Body Systems offers spa, body products and accessories. They sell more than body butter. Why not check out the soaps, masks, lotions, fragrances, bath salts and much more! View the entire Body Systems’ collection or make a purchase, please visit them at: http://www.body-systems.net/.
