Dyson v7 Car & Boat

Hello everyone!

We just want to give a little respect to this new toy we purchased and let people know the deal for the Dyson v7 Car & Boat. We’ve had a lot of small vacuums before this one different brands different styles but this one definitely is the top of the line as far as smaller handheld vacuums go.

The vacuum is able to run for 30mins on a charge which is pretty good for a very strong cordless. It comes with a lot of accessories for different tasks like the crevice tool, extension hose, dusting brush attachment, a combo brush tool, hard bristle brush, and this really nice motorized attachment. The motorized brush attachment is really awesome getting tough spots like when the animal hair weaves its way into the cushion and you have to pluck it out one by one because the vacuum isn’t cutting it.

This little vacuum really helps as hated carrying around the big clunky vacuums with the long extension cord following us around tangling up. It’s just so streamline now an empties out so easily just pull this red handle on top and all the mess fall out the bottom it’s really hygienic.

Costco had a great deal for this, we thought it was a little expensive $169.99 usd we were a little hesitant at first then did some research an found out on the Dyson website its selling for $239 usd its crazy deal, for great value. So we went online because they didn’t have it in our store here and purchased it and it was way worth it. We hope if you don’t already have one or its comparison cordless is the way of the future hop on the bandwagon get it from Costco before they realize how cheap their selling it 🙂

This vacuum is a life saver for reaching those spots that you didn’t even know existed. We use it a lot for getting our cat hair off of everything, or when we truck in dirt from a hike or from camping. We really recommend it!

Thanks for giving us your time hope you get something out of this.

 

 

 

 

Top Products April 2018

Hello Friends!

Back with another Top products for 2018, keep reading to learn about a few of our favorite products that we’ve been loving lately.

Organic Wool Dryer Balls

 

These are great, we’ve been having to run our dryer a lot longer lately, and when we purchased these bad boys and it really helped with that drying time. Our dryer is not the greatest and we are looking to investing in a new one. But for now, these have really helped cut the drying time in half. It’s also better for the environment than using individual dryer sheets, because you can put essential oils in these wool balls and it adds a nice light scent to each load. We purchased ours on amazon, they have many options available.

Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant Geranium Flower – Sensitive Skin Formula

2

We been loving this deodorant for the both of us, on us individually it smells so different. (Your body’s Ph balance has a lot to do with it) Its super light and a little goes a long way. If you enjoy a light floral almost jasmine scent you will like this, on top of that its a sensitive skin formula which is nice because the skin under the arms can be a very picky area when it comes to introducing new products.

Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Bar Soap – Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Rose.

5

Dr. Bronner’s always has a way of making it on to our lists, we absolutely love the bar soaps in particular. We go through these like crazy, some of our favorites happen to be Eucalyptus, peppermint and rose. The unscented baby version is really awesome for children with sensitive and eczema prone skin my nephew’s skin has really improved with the use of this mild soap. Available at Trader Joe’s/ whole foods and Target other Drugstores. Their liquid soaps last forever, and they are very concentrated so dilution is key.

Thayers Witch Hazel- Alcohol Free Toner (Rose Petal)

4

We like to use this as a toner, and to spot treat itchy bug bites. Witch Hazel is extremely calming, and helps a lot with the itching when we get bug bites which Colleen suffers from most of the time. As a toner it helps calm the skin’s redness during break outs. You can pick this up at your local Target and drugstores.

 

That’s it for this edtion of Top Products hope you all enjoyed and hopefully it gave some of you some ideas. Please share any products you guys love, we would really love to hear and recommendations.

As always thank you for reading 🙂

Missing In Action

Hello friends!

wedding 5

We are back and have an announcement, during these past couple of months Raphael and I have been planning our wedding that took place in Napa, California on Friday December 29, 2017.

Raphy and I have been together for almost 6 years, and time has really flown for us. We’ve always known that one day we would get married when the time was ‘right’. Then next thing you know 5 years passes by, and we realize no moment is ever going to feel like the perfect time for us. Fast forward–to planning our wedding in just over 1 month.

We can say with no regrets it was perfect just how we pictured it small, very intimate, and filled with love with the people we love. We are sorry to have been gone for such good chunk of time. But we just wanted to have all focus on our special day, and enjoy each and every moment of planning it all out. It was definitely the best way to end our 2017, and begin the new year on this new journey of marriage.

We wanted to pop on here and share some photos with all of our friends here. Hope you enjoy!

Top Products #2

Hi Friends!

 

 

Here is our second installment to our Top Products series, these are products we’ve been trying out and really enjoying. Keep reading to see what we’ve been into.

 

  1. First up we have this awesome STASHER BAGS, these reusable bags are plastic free platinum silicone food storage bags. These bags have been really convenient to have around not only can they be used for storing food items but also works well for travel we put our head phones and charging cables to keep them all in one place nice and neat. You can use these bags to cook in (a method called sous vide) Click here for a review we found, freeze food, pack picnic items, pack lunch, microwave safe, dishwasher safe. Stasher claims a reuse up to 3000+ times. The pinch and seal bags are super convenient and better for our environment of course.

 

We highly recommend trying them out if you think it suits your life style. Each cost around $11.99 usd each which sounds crazy but its really an investment. Atleast that’s how we viewed it upon purchasing it ourselves.

2. This CANNON MX492 wi-fi printer, honestly this is just the cheapest basic version they carried at Best Buy here in the states, priced around $60 usd this thing is amazing. We feel as though we had been living in the dark ages without it. Printing, just became so much more easier. I’m sure many of you already have wifi printers, and yes we are very late, of course we do not like to print unnecessary items because in our opinion is very wasteful we only print the things we need to have physical copies of verses digital. But somethings do require printing and we are thankful it has become less of a hassle since our phones are connected to our emails, we can just pop on our phone and turn on the printer and effortlessly print that item as needed. Instead of before having to get out our laptop wait for it to turn on and load fuss around with cords while rummaging through our emails to finally being able to print that one item.

 

3. Travel Wise Packing squares, these have made us not dread packing for trips. With these everything is separated out by category his, hers, pants, socks, underwear, sleep wear, tops ect. We are now able to pack loads more while keeping it all really organized. We picked these up on amazon $22 usd for a 5 piece set they have a wide selection to choose from, but they carry them at Target also. These aren’t the best quality but they get the job done, and that is all we ask for.  If you struggle with packing like us before then you will appreciate these trust us.

4. La Croix, unsweetened, 0% sodium, flavored sparkling water. Price ranges from $3-5 usd for a pack of 8. We’ve been going through cans of this like crazy for a long time. Its just nice to have something fresh and bubbly to gulp down without being sugary. We are thinking of investing in a soda stream just to use for sparkling water. As for now, we’ve been loving these for about over 2 years we always forget to keep the boxes to share with you all. Our top flavors have to me the cucumber blackberry, lemon, lime we would say all of the flavors are pretty good. But those are just the flavors we gravitate towards. These are widely available in your local supermarkets, target and sometimes gas stations. They are everywhere, believe me. If for some reason you can’t seem to find them, They should be available on amazon and jet.com.Image result for master brew kombucha pineapple peach

5. Kombucha, which is a fermented tea drink made from all different types of fruits, veggies and herbs it is very acidic tasting which is not a flavor everyone will like, but we do enjoy. We have a couple of bottles about 2-4 times a week just depending, and yes they are not the cheapest thing to buy so we appreciate every drop a bottle can range anywhere from $3-7 usd just depending on the kind, size and where you are purchasing. But there are so many benefits for gut health and your health in general if you want to know more click here. We always forget to save our old bottles of kombucha, but we wanted to share on here some of our favorite brands.

  • Kevita, Master Brew, is one of our favorites lately our go to brand, sold at Target, gas stations, local markets. Try their pinepple peach, ginger and really any flavor.
  • Kauai Juice Co, We enjoyed some local kombucha brewers in Kauai Hawaii they would probably be hands down our favorite of all time. Try it out if you are ever on the island, you will not regret it. They also have so many other options like smoothie, milks, juices ect. Unfortunately the last time we had them was in April of 2015, but all the more reason for us to go back.
  • Trader Joe’s, They carry some good kombuchas don’t quite remember the names exactly but you will see it in the refrigerator section. Try out their mint tea flavor.
  • GT’s Kombucha or Synergy, They were probably one of the first brands of kombucha in major markets. Try out their lavendar and mango flavors.

 

 

Honestly, not all are made equally. Just like with anything in the world. So we recommend trying them all out to see which ones you enjoy. That is exactly the approach we take.

Hope you all enjoyed catching up on all of our favorites, Please let us know down in the comments if you’ve had experiences with any of the products listed good or bad. As always thank you guys for stopping by and reading 🙂
