Jabra Move Wireless Headphones Review!


When I found out Jabra came out with a new pair of headphones, I was like sign me up! I love Jabra products, they are innovative, stylish, and high quality. I have a couple of their products that I've done reviews on, such as the Jabra Style Bluetooth Headset and the Jabra Rox Wireless Earbuds.

The Jabra Move Wireless headphones are not just an ordinary pair of headphones. They give you the freedom to move, whether you're dancing, cleaning, exercising, walking, or running, when you're on the go you need to be able to move freely without wires getting in the way. With the Jabra Move Wireless Headphones you can leave your phone in your pocket or purse and still be able to listen to your favorite tunes and take calls.


When the Jabra Move Wireless Headphones arrived at more doorstep I could hardly contain my excitement. I listen to a lot of music, so having a good pair of headphones is a must. I'm kind of over ear buds, because they are always slipping out of my ears. I was really excited about finally having a pair of headphones that fit over my ears.

Right away I could see that these were some very stylish headphones. The clean, simple, and beautiful Scandinavian design is very pleasing to the eye. They come in 3 different colors that were inspired by the lights and colors of a modern metropolis. It's nice to have variety, and to pick the color that fits your personality and lifestyle best. The color choices are Cobalt, Cayenne, and Coal. I got them in Coal, and they go with everything, although the bright colors are also really fun.


I appreciate that the design is very simple, practical and easy to understand. There are volume buttons and a jack connector on the left ear and a battery connection status light, on/off/pairing switch, and a micro-usb port on the right ear. Pairing the headphones to your cell phone or tablet is a breeze.

Once I put them on my ears I could feel that they were very comfortable. There is just enough cushioning around the ear cups for optimal comfort. The headband is very lightweight and each side is adjustable. I can wear them for hours with no discomfort.

Having headphones that are wireless is liberating. I love being able to put my phone down, move around, and listen to music. With that being said, I am even happier that they also have a wired option as well. That means that even if the battery dies, I'm on a plane, or using a device that doesn't have Bluetooth capability, I can still use these headphones.

The sound quality is perfection, immersive, crisp, clear, and beautiful; the way music should be listened to.


To summarize, here are the key benefits of the Jabra Move Wireless Headphones:

  • Superior sound clarity.
  • Wireless and wired options.
  • Lightweight and comfortable.
  • Durable
  • Easy to charge via USB cable.
  • Switch seamlessly between music and phone calls.
  • Syncs with any device via Bluetooth 4.0
  • Up to 8 hours music/talk time and 12 days standby time.
If you are interested in purchasing the Jabra Move Wireless Headphones they can be purchased at Jabra.com for $99. Jabra products can also be found at Amazon, AT&T, Best Buy, BrandsMart, Costco, Dell, K-Mart, Radio Shack, Sprint, Staples, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Wal-Mart, and many other retailers across the globe.

Corkcicle Review!


Wine enthusiasts unite! There's a product to enhance your wine drinking experience, and it's called Corkcicle. Corkcicle is essentialy a cork with an icicle at the end that you stick into your bottle of wine to keep it cool. It's better than a fussy and messy bucket of ice that will eventually make your bottle of wine too cold, and much better than leaving the bottle on the table where it will get too warm. 

Yes, the Corkcicle will keep your white or red wine at the perfect temperature! We've all heard that you're supposed to drink red wine at room temperature. Well, that simply isn't true. Red wine's optimal drinking temperature is cellar temperature, which is a little bit below 60 degrees, and room temperature is usually around 72 degrees. Corkcicle solves this dilemma by cooling room temperature red wine to the correct temperature in 15 minutes. It also keeps white wine perfectly chilled for up to an hour. 


I'm just beginning my love for wine, so Corkcicle sounded like the perfect item to help accompany me on my journey. I wanted my wine to have the best taste possible, and drinking too cold or too warm of wine can seriously mask the wine's flavors. 


I received the original basic Corkcicle. I was very impressed with the design and quality of this product. The icicle is actually made of a soft slightly flexible material and it contains a liquid that freezes and is what keeps your wine cool. The cork at the top feels and looks just like a real cork, it has the Corkcicle logo printed on the side. The cork even has a top that can twist off, and you can twist on a festive Corkcicle Cap. The Corkcicle caps are great for any occasion and our an extra special touch that will certainly impress your guests. 

I bought a bottle of Pink Moscato the other night, and I couldn't wait to try out my Corkcicle. I removed the cap and stuck the Corkcicle in it's place. It fit snugly and perfectly, just like a regular cork. I kept my bottle out for at least an hour, and I happily drank my deliciously chilled wine. It was very nice, being able to pour a cool glass of wine, without having to get up and go to the fridge.

If wine isn't your thing, they also have products to keep other drinks cool such as the Chillsner (keeps bottled beer cold), Vinnebago (keeps drinks cold for 25 hours, or hot for 12 hours), and they have a brand new product coming out called the Whiskey Wedge to keep your favorite spirits chilled without watering them down. 

Overall, I'm very pleased with my Corkcicle. It does what it's supposed to do, and it does it in style. You can purchase the Corkcicle for $17.95 and other must-have products at Corkcicle.com 

Keep up with Corkcicle by following them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Book Review: The Drunken Cookbook by Milton Crawford!


The Drunken Cookbook (or Druknen Coobkook) is a hard cover cook book that's slightly larger than my hand and contains recipes that you can make even when you've had too much to drink. The beginning of the book starts out with some tests to find out your level of drunkenness, if you're just tipsy then you can make most recipes, if you're too plastered then you should probably stay out of the kitchen. After the ridiculous tests and results, we get to the recipes.

There are 7 chapters, each highlighting a different type of food such as The Drunken Carnivore, Plastered Party Food, or Boozy Desserts, each chapter contains 6 recipes, totaling 42 recipes in all. All recipes make enough food to serve 2 people, which is perfect for me, since I live with my boyfriend, rarely have visitors, and have no kids. Each recipe contains warning symbols to signify whether the recipe calls for boiling water, sharp knives, or a hot pan, because these things can be especially dangerous after you've had a few too many drinks. Each recipe is also labeled for it's level of difficulty; Cinch for Easy, Fussy for Moderate, and Toil for Difficult.

I found the recipes inside a little too fancy and fussy for my taste. I'm not a great cook, I don't like spending a lot of time in the kitchen, I'm on a budget, and I like my recipes to have as few ingredients as possible. When I saw a cook book that catered to drunk people, I thought these would be easy and simple recipes for me on a daily basis. Unfortunately, I just didn't think these recipes were any less complex than any other cook book out there. For example, the Spicy Thai-Style Pork Burgers with a Cucumber and Peanut Salad that was labeled as Easy, needed 22 different ingredients.

Another thing that bothered me, is if you are going to supposedly make a cook book for drunk people, the ingredients should be things you might already have in your fridge such as chicken, beef, basic vegetables, and spices. Not things you are going to have to go out of your way to get. How many people have chicken liver in their fridge? Not me, and I'm pretty sure I don't want to find any kind of liver in my fridge, ever.

The name just kind of throws me off, because when I thought of a drunken cookbook I was expecting burgers and wings, or even some basic soups, casseroles, or pastas. I wasn't expecting to find sophisticated dishes like, Pakistani Lamb Kofta, Curried Monkfish and mussels with Gewurztraminer, or Salt Cod Croquettes with Manzanilla. Seriously, most of these foods I've never heard of, and I'm not even sure if I can pronounce them correctly. If these recipes intimidate me, then I can only imagine what my man-child boyfriend would think of them. Out of all the recipes in the entire book there are only a couple that I would even attempt.

Overall, if you are someone that really likes to experiment in the kitchen and loves all different types of foods, then this cook book could be for you. If not, the recipes most likely won't appeal to you. However, The Drunken Cookbook could still make a great gag gift, which is probably what it was mainly intended for anyway. It also makes for a fun little quirky decoration on my kitchen counter, which is enough of a reason for me to keep it.

beautystoredepot.com Rock Your Hair Review & Giveaway!


As you may recall I did a review and giveaway for Pur Minerals makeup products that I got from beautystoredepot.com in May. You can check it out here if you missed it. That giveaway was such a huge hit, that beautystoredepot.com was kind enough to send me and a luck reader some more amazing goodies. 

If you haven't heard of beautystoredepot.com they are an online store that sells makeup and beauty products for your hair, skin, nails, body, and even for men. They have great prices, free shipping, and often have sales and coupon codes available. They have some of the top brands in beauty and hair such as BioSilk, CHI, Clarisonic, Dermalogica, Fake Bake, gloMinerals, Hempz, Macadamia, OPI, Pur Minerals, Rusk, and many more. 


I had seen the pretty pink packaging of Rock Your Hair products and I heard that they were really good, so I decided to try out the Rock Your Hair Leave-In Conditioner Weightless Detangler and Spray It Hard Volumizing Hair Spray.

After washing my hair and towel drying it, I used the Rock Your Hair Leave-In Conditioner Weightless Detangler. I generously sprayed from roots to ends and then I brushed my hair to distribute the product evenly. I use the Rock Your Hair Leave-In Conditioner for many reasons. For one, it makes brushing and untangling my hair much easier, it also preps my hair for styling and using heat tools, and it puts moisture back into my hair after washing it.

Some other benefits of Rock Your Hair Leave-In Conditioner:
  • Shinier, stronger, healthier hair
  • Soy, wheat and oat proteins to reinforce hair from shaft to ends
  • Replenishes moisture and shine to dry, color treated and chemically processed hair
  • Tangle tamer for all hair types
  • Helps repair damage caused by heat styling

After my hair was completely dry it was time to style it. I used my large barrel curling iron, for big loose curls at the ends of my hair. Once I sectioned off my hair, I sprayed each section before and after curling for a long lasting hold. I really liked that the Rock Your Hair Hairspray didn't have that usual icky hair spray smell, it actually smelled really nice. I found that the Rock Your Hair Hairspray was very easy to brush through and it didn't make my hair stiff. Best of all my curls lasted all day long.

Some other benefits of the Rock Your Hair Spray It Hard Volumizing Hairspray:
  • Big, Bold Rocking Finishing Spray

Earnest Eats Hot & Fit Cereals, Energy Bars, and Granola Bars Review!


I try to eat healthier when I can. It can take a lot of planning and hard work in the kitchen to prepare a meal that is good for you. So, when I find nutritious snacks and quick and easy meals, I'm in love. Earnest Eats is a company that's right up my ally. Earnest Eats makes cereal, granola, and energy bars that are delicious, nutritious, convenient, sustainable, and fresh.

They are entirely all natural, they only use whole food ingredients that aren’t messed with in any way. You will find no spray-on vitamins or protein powders here, all of their nutrition comes from the actual food. Their snacks are minimally processed, free of preservatives and artificial ingredients. They are even made in small batches and baked by hand in real baking trays!


I received a great variety of their Hot & Fit Cereals, granola bars, and energy bars. I got a big bag of their Hot & Fit Cereal Superfood Blueberry Chia, and their convenient single serve cups of their American Blend, Asian Blend, and Mayan Blend cereals. The thinner longer bars that you see are their granola bars. I received the Power Grains & Flax, Dark Chocolate Almond, and Superfood Trail Mix. The square bars are the energy bars. I received the Double Choco Espresso, Cran Lemon Zest, and Choco Peanut Butter.

I absolutely love the Hot & Fit Cereals. I've always enjoyed eating oatmeal in the morning. It's a hearty, healthy, and tasty meal. I'm so glad I received a big bag of the Superfood Blueberry Chia, because it's so good! I love the little bits of fresh blueberries. It's also full of chia seeds, sunflower seeds, and superfood grains.

The single serve cups couldn't make making breakfast any easier. All you have to do is take off the lid, fill to the line with water, and pop it into the microwave. If you don't want to use a microwave, there's also stove top instructions as well. After your oatmeal is ready to eat, you can eat it right out of the container. No mess and no dirty dishes makes me happy.

American Blend Hot & Fit Cereal in a single serve cup. Mmm look at those cranberries and sunflower seeds!
 The American Blend was definitely my favorite of all the flavors. The cranberries give it a little bit of sweetness and a whole lot of tastiness. It also contains almonds, flax, cashews, and superfood grains like Whole Rolled Oats and Quinoa.

Some of the benefits of the Hot & Fit Cereals:
  • Superfood Grain Blend: Oats + Quinoa + Amaranth
  • High in Protein and Fiber
  • NON-GMO Verified
  • Vegan, Wheat-free, Soy-Free & Dairy-Free
  • International Rescue Committee Donation
Now let's talk about those delicious snack bars... The energy bars are a very dense chewy square, while the granola bars are lighter and less condensed. They are both very good, but I personally prefer the granola bars.

My favorite of all the bars is the Superfood Trail Mix. I'm loving it because of the combination of bright fruity pomegranate and whole crunchy almonds and superfood grains. 

As for the energy bars, my favorite was the Cran Lemon Zest. It's seriously out of this world! It's definitely one of my top favorites that I tried from Earnest Eats. What can I say, I love cranberries and the mix of lemon zest is just right.

These bars are so great for in between meals, to satisfy those snacking cravings, to bring with you on long walks and hikes, and to just throw in your purse and go. 

Some of the benefits of the Granola and Energy Bars:
  • Wheat Free
  • Vegan
  • High in Fiber
  • 100% Natural
You can purchase any of these products and more at EarnestEats.com or at major retailers across the United States such as Target, The Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Albertsons, Costco, Nordstrom, Safeway, and many more!

Book Review: Bend Your Brain by Marbles the Brain Store


Bend Your Brain is a very fun book full of puzzles and brain teasers that help enhance your memory, build problem solving skills, and reduce stress. Basically they help you build a better brain, which is great for me, because I pretty much have the memory of a goldfish.

The book is divided into five different categories: Visual Perception, Word Skills, Critical Thinking, Coordination, and Memory. Each of these categories contains puzzles that progressively become harder. They are labeled by five different skill levels: Mind Warming, Mind Stretching, Mind Growing, Mind Bursting, and Mind Blowing. Gradually increasing the difficulty allows your brain to change and become stronger.

I really enjoyed this activity book. It's definitely not your everyday crossword or sodoku puzzle book, it's so much more. It contains many brain teasers that I've never seen before, such as a 600+ dot-to-dots, sodoku with letters, crossword puzzles with no clues, and plenty of word scrambles, word searches, and mazes. Some of the puzzles only take a few minutes to complete while others may take half an hour or more.

The entire book has over 150 pages for you to enjoy, so it will definitely keep you busy for quite a few road trips, flights, between classes, or bouts of boredom. I try to do a few puzzles a day to keep my brain active.

The puzzles have definitely kept me busy. They are difficult, but not so much that I can't complete most of them. However, I was dissapointed with a few puzzles because they aren't possible for everyone to do. For example, there's a puzzle where you have to identify celebrities mouths (what if you aren't familiar with the celebrities?), and another puzzle where you have to label whether certain events happened before or after the year 2000 (a few of them I had no clue about). That kind of information you either know or you don't, I prefer puzzles that really make you think.

In the event that you can't figure out one of the puzzles and it's starting to drive you a little crazy, there are answers in the back of the book to help you keep your sanity.

Not only does this book contain many mind blowing puzzles, but there's also witty little descriptions, graphics, brain facts, and hints throughout it's entirety that truly makes this book superior to an average puzzle book.
