My Review of Zombie Shirts From BrainEatingTees.com

Hey everyone, I'm back with another great t-shirt review! 


We got a great t-shirt this week to try out. I ordered a men's medium, and it fit Jesse well. It's a comfortable black shirt. The graphic is clear, proportionate, and isn't just a big iron-on so it's comfortable and doesn't look cheap.

Make sure you check out Brain Eating Tee's website! And don't worry, the zombie fun isn't just for the guys, they have cute zombie t-shirts for women too! 

I really love to review shirts, and doing it through Tomoson is always a great experience. I hope you enjoy my reviews, thanks for reading!

Sharpie Retractable



The Sharpie Retractable marker writes so nicely! 
I was given the opportunity to try out a Sharpie Retractable Fine Point Marker and share my thoughts. I have always loved the Sharpie brand, and was very excited to try out another one of their products. 


This marker is awesome because there's no cap to take on and off, you can click it open and closed with one hand, perfect for multi-tasking! I used this marker at my new business, a consignment shop, to do inventory, sizing, sales, and more. 

I was worried about the marker drying out since the bottom is open where it clicks in and out, but I read this information from the company and it explains everything! 

"Superior seal is made possible with the Safety Seal valve design which prevents markers from leaking or drying out. It features fade-resistant, water-resistant, quick-drying ink. It’s permanent ink marks on most hard-to-mark surfaces and is certified AP nontoxic."

Here are photos of the pen when it is clicked open and closed.

Overall, I love the Sharpie Retractable Pen. It's easy to use, writes really well, and performs up to the great standards of the Sharpie brand.

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins are Amazing!


I am in love with the Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins that I received in my awesome Influenster Beauty VoxBox!

Goody  Simple Styles Spin Pin
Product Photo
About the Product:
The Spin Pin does the work of 20 bobby pins! Easily achieve chic updo styles; simply twirl your hair up and spin the Spin Pins in for a perfect top knot, undone bun and side bun! 
Steps: 
1. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck (no ponytail holder needed) 
2. Twist your hair into a tight bun and tuck in the ends 
3. Spin one pin in from the top and the other from the base, taking care not to      interlock pins.

I have long hair, really thick hair, and there is a LOT of it! It's a pain to deal with but I love having long hair. I don't like always throwing it up in an elastic because it breaks my hair.

The spin pins are the perfect solution! They are really quick and easy to use, and just 2 of them keep all of my hair in place all day long.


Before
After --
I left one of the pins sticking out a little bit on the right side to show where I put them in.  The other is on the opposite side in the same spot.



The Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin is available at for only $7.29 at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreen’s, Kroger, Duane Reade.

Disclaimer -- I received this product for free so I could try it and give my honest review. I was not compensated for my review nor was I asked to give a positive review.

Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review


This review could not have come at a better time! 

Pine Bros. offers great "softish" throat drops in different flavors. They currently include: Wild Cherry and Natural Honey. Lemon-Citrus and Licorice will be available soon! 
Product Description --  Ulysses S. Grant was President, the population of America hovered at 39 million, and the telephone was still a pipe dream, when in 1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and, along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called 'Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets.' In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born. "I have discovered something," Pine wrote, "which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was." He added,"Perhaps I won't make much money out of this. But I can make people happy, and that's more important than money." Mr. Pine was being unduly modest, as his "discovery" would become one of the most successful, most delicious and most unique throat lozenges in the world. Nor has the recipe changed appreciably since it was first introduced to the public over 140 years ago.
In 1930 Pine Brothers was sold to the Life Savers Company and continued to flourish. Known for its 'soft drop consistency,' Pine Brothers lozenges became a favorite of adults and children alike. The product, which attracted healthiest sales in the eastern and northern states, due to its icy winters, reached its peak popularity in the 1970's. The company was sold by Life Savers, and then, having been re-sold and acquired a number of times, found itself essentially rudderless and under appreciated; this despite a legion of loyal consumers. Cost cutting changes were made to the original recipes, packaging became stale and marketing non-existent; Pine Brothers began to be made overseas. Sales declined.Recently, Pine Brothers was acquired by the creator and former owner of Airborne, Victoria Knight-McDowell, for her new company 3 Sisters Home Products™. Much time and effort has been spent locating the original Pine Brothers recipes, redesigning the packaging, and creating an exciting yet classic new look. The natural product is once again being made in America, and is launching nationally in fall 2011. At which time old Mr. Pine, will succeed once again in "making people happy." God bless him!

I began working for the Boys and Girls Club about 6 weeks ago. I work 2 shifts a day, both in elementary schools. This new job, plus the weather, plus my horrible immune system, equals me being sick, for a long time. I have been sick twice since beginning the job, and I've has this most recent cold (I hope?) for about 4 weeks now. 



I've had no voice and been coughing me head off for so long that it's normal to me. I grabbed one of the bags of cherry throat drops before work one morning, and I'm sure glad I did! They are a good size, and they taste good! They really helped me out when I was having coughing fits. 
I love the disc that they offer, it reminds me of a case of mints. I keep it in my coat pocket now. 

Pine Bros. products are available at CVS Pharmacy locations throughout the US. Check out Pine Bros. on their websiteFacebook and Twitter, they will have a number of contests going on throughout the year!

Kisspat Hair Chalk Review!


I am so excited to share my review of this hair chalk with you all!


I tried out the purple chalk. I have dark blonde/light brown hair, and I was surprised at how well the color showed up. 

No Flash.

It was pretty easy to use the hair chalk, just wet the chalk and color it on. Or, use the chalk while your hair is damp. For instructions on how to use hair chalk, check out their great site!
 
With Flash.

The color stayed pretty well, it faded when I brushed my hair. Then it came out easily when I washed my hair. I'm really happy with the Kisspat hair chalk, and I plan to continue using it! I'm excited to try all of the different colors out.

Check out their website to see what hair chalk they have to offer!
