The Kona Waterproof Case for all smart phones up to 6.3 inches in length is truly awesome! It comes with the waterproof case, a lanyard, and a 5 year warranty. Kona recommends that you test the case before actually using it with your phone and I did so. After making sure the case was indeed waterproof I placed my Samsung Galaxy S5 in the case and secured it and you can watch the video to see my phone submerged in my sink (video taken at 1/4 speed).

I'm absolutely sure my family will be using this at pools and the beach all summer long. We are looking forward to hitting the beach for underwater adventures and this Kona waterproof case will definitely bring those memories to life!


360° CLEAN GRILL BRUSH By Kona® - 18"

~ Disclaimer: This product was give to me at a deep discount in exchange for my 100% honest review. All statements expressed in this review are my own ~
The Kona 360° Clean Grill Brush really does effortlessly clean dirty grills. It is constructed of a heavy duty stainless steel and very hard molded plastic and has the fancy Kona bull and red cape logo on the handle. I really like the extended length handle which allowed me to scrub my grill rack clean without putting my hand directly over it. Due to the construction, it's very springy which assists in easy scraping.
I even use it on my toaster oven racks and the job is done SO QUICKLY! I am so glad the Kona grill 360° brush has come into my life!
My non-extended handle, non-springy grill brush is going out in the trash now that I own what is apparently the king of grill brushes. I love it!

Cotton Guitar Strap with Leather by Strapsnake

~ Note: This product was given to me in exchange for my 100% honest opinion. All thoughts expressed in this review are my own. ~

Are all guitar straps equal? Apparently not according to my husband, who reviewed this strap as I don’t play guitar or bass. After putting the strap on one of his bass guitars he proceeded to play for an hour or so to thoroughly check it out.

This is a quality constructed strap made of a non-slip cotton weave which is very comfortable compared to those made of nylon. Aside from the quality construction and comfort he digs that there is no logo on the strap. The extended leather ends are more than twice the size of the ends on some of the other straps he owns and the stitching seems equivalent or perhaps better than that on some of his much more expensive straps. In short, he says that it totally rocks and that it is staying on his bass. I have looked at it myself and am very impressed with how strong the strap is. The leather is a very nice touch and this should be durable for 1000's of hours! My husband is 6'3" and this adjustable strap had even more room to adjust for even taller folks. Great range for adjusting to any player's height!

I am an eyelash product junkie, so I was very excited to try this curler that comes in a cute, pretty & pink box. I love all things eyelashes! Mascaras, eyelash vitamins, lash primer, lash fibers, lash extensions - you name it, I've tried it! The Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler is very helpful in making my lashes curl up and really open up the eye for a glam, bigger lash look in prep for the good stuff (mascara, primers, fibers, etc.)! The silicone pad is very soft and will not damage the lashes. Simply close the handle after you have positioned the device close to the eyelash line and press GENTLY for about 5-10 seconds. Quickly apply your base primer and/or mascara afterward, then repeat steps on your other top lash. This product is easy to use, with quick and instant results. Make sure your lashes and the silicone pad are clean before each use. Get ready for big, beautiful & curly lashes!

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Purifying Body Wash at Costco

~ Disclaimer: I bought this product for my own  personal use. I was not asked to review by the company - all opinions are my own. ~

I just hit the jackpot on three 16 ounce bottles of Aveeno Active Naturals positively nourishing purifying body wash, made with seaweed and oatmeal. 
It smells so delicious - very lightly of coconut and pineapple I think? It does not smell overpowering but like the real fruits, LIGHT & GOODNESS. Mmmmmm, I love it! I'm going back to buy a few more 3-packs for $9.99. Lathers well, feels moisturizing and silky, not stripping or drying to my skin, aromatherapy, 16 ounces of goodness.

Jackpot deal for daughter & me!Great stuff, awesome price, at $3.33 per bottle! $WOW$

Primitive Gypsy's Valentines Day Giveaway!

Brought to you by PrimitiveGypsy. Enter here for a neat Valentine's prize pack!

Cancun, Mexico


I highly recommend Cancun, Mexico Beaches to any and everyone that loves sun & sand and true, unmatched emerald, turquoise blue beauty! I just had a wonderful trip with my BFF from 5th grade. What a refreshing gift. I owe her my sanity!  What a wonderful way to start 2015!
If you are blessed to do so, make sure to visit Isla Mujeres and any of the Mayan Ruins - there are several locations - we visited Tulum and it was built on the Gulf! Breathtaking and amazing history!  The marketplace has a Starbucks, (which was very much appreciated after the hike up and down from the Ruins) and haagen-dazs and also a nice restaurant with the best chicken pesto bacon flatbread hearthbaked pizza! There were traditionally dressed Mayan guys all painted up with huge colorful live iguanas and also a group of guys dressed up in fancy, bright, traditional costume that hung upside down on ropes and swung around a high pole - cool and amazing! Also, my friend got to bottlefeed a baby lion cub - a highlight of her life, I'm pretty was the sweetest little thing I've ever seen!  My friend recommends the Chichen Itza Ruins in Yucatan. She really enjoyed the history. 
We stayed at a timeshare called the Royal Carribean. Beautiful grounds, great food and restaurants, great Happy Hours from 3 til dark at the swim-up pool bar and inside the sports bar. Karaoke Sunday & Thursday nights. 
Ohhhhhh, I am having Gulfview withdrawal.  I will strive to live beachfront, someday! Having lived on the panhandle of FL for 10 years and having had a taste of this good life & good view makes me homesick a bit when I saw the colors of Cancun! I have to say, as beautiful as Panama City Beach to Fort Walton Beaches are in Florida, something a little More vivid.... bluer, greener and more turquoise in Mexico just jumps out at you and will leave you longing for more! I found my favorite color and it is in the Gulf of Mexico between Cancun and Isla Mujeres. 
 I have fallen in love! Fun, festive atmosphere & family oriented too. 
I would love to take my children back with me, as I saw many families there enjoying this beautiful part of the country!
Riding the city bus was actually a bit of an adventure and a very affordable way to get around.  Dinner at Cambalache Argentinian Steakhouse was the best flank steak dinner, creamed spinach I've ever tasted, melted in my mouth. The caramel flan was a new texture experience for me also but delicious! 
Go to There!
