Best for hot flashes, home and office use, camping, outdoor sports, watching the game, and more. 

Patented, air cooling technology in a small portable device
Similar to large air cooling units and swamp coolers, the Handy Cooler utilizes the principles of 'evaporative cooling'. To activate the air cooler, you simply need to wet the included cellulose cooling filter and Handy Cooler will do the rest.
The turbine draws air through the moistened filter, directing the cool air onto you. The process transforms uncomfortable hot air into a cool breeze (up to 30°F cooler) that refreshes and satisfies you.
The cooling performance may not be as powerful as compressor-based air conditioners, but if you are looking for a lightweight and portable solution to take around anywhere, evaporative cooling is the only option!
NOTE: Optimum cooling performance achieved under hot and dry environments.

My Take:  
Let me say WOW! I love this fan. I plugged it in to my computer and used it while sitting on my lap top blogging and I can say this little fan works & when I say works it made my face cold. I have been having 90 degree heat where I live and I only turn my air on to 78 to get the humidity knocked down in my house and all I need to do is plug the fan in and it cools me down. I love how it works by getting the sponge damp. I am going to the drag races in August and can't wait to bring this with me to use while sitting out in the heat. Any one can use this and  let me say this does help when you get a hot flash :)

Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls Book Review & Giveaway ends 7/04 daily

About the book:

Naughty is the new Nice..

That’s the mantra and message of the new “tell-all” how-to paperback, physical book from beauty maestro Dimitri James. In Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls, James creates a new kind of finishing school–one for nice girls who always finish anywhere but first.

Tired of seeing the many “nice girls” in his life constantly overlooked, James, a celebrity makeup artist, style guru and television personality, offers a lively and entertaining read full of actionable tips and tricks, showing you how to get whom and what you want.

Those open the book will learn how to look classy, not trashy, trading the prim, proper uniform of “safe” clothing, makeup and hair for something sexier and more inviting, but still situation-appropriate. “You would be surprised how many women don’t know how to use clothes and makeup to market themselves in various social or professional settings,” says James. “‘Nice’ girls are invisible, and ‘trashy’ ones go over the top. ‘Naughty’ is the happy medium that pushes the envelope without crossing the line.”

Thus, James challenges the traditional connotations of the word “naughty” and redefines it as a spirit that can change both image and self-perception for the better. In chapters that range from “Naughty at Work” to “Naughty First Date” to “Naughty Traveler” and “Yummy Mommy,” the author shows readers how to dress outside the box and re-vamp their beauty regimens to add sizzle to their style for all seasons and occasions.
Flip open the physical book to almost any page and find a small gem of wisdom, or a stunningly clear depiction of “nice” vs. “naughty” vs. “trashy,” all sprinkled with James’ trademark wit, candor and spirit of camaraderie.
Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls is loaded with makeup and fashion advice to empower a Nice Girl to transform herself into a spicy but classy woman in every situation. So, go ahead and channel your inner naughty. Instead of fading into the background, become a star in your own life!
 I really liked this book. I love how you can find scenario to change up your life. I know a few people in my life who need to read this book. If you are like me and not a fashion forward person this book will show you step by step how you can add a little more appeal to your look with out going over board. This is a must read for all women. 
Now for the giveaway: One lucky person will win a copy of Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls: How To Turn Up the Heat and Add Sex Appeal to Everyday Situations.

AK-47 T-Shirt Review & Giveaway 6/21 - 7/3 daily

What's The Deal With AK-47 T-shirts?

If you're wondering what kind of gun nut it takes to make a whole website geared only towards the 1947 Kalashnikov model of assault rifle, then I have to stop you right there. We're not gun nuts. That term may be thrown around playfully, but it doesn't apply here. We're FREEDOM nuts. We appreciate the American tradition of "don't mess with me, and I won't mess with you." The Golden Rule of treating others like you would like to be treated is a lot easier to follow when the "others" in question have a powerful, semi-auto assault rifle hanging over the mantle.
As for our choice of promoting the AK-47, we can only point to the quality of the weapon in question. The AK-47 is a premium weapon of the finest design. There may be other rifles out there that look prettier and shoot farther, but nothing can compare to the reliance, durability, and economics of the AK-47. This gun is a trooper, and I find that it is the gun of choice for people who want a home defense weapon that they can count on to not jam and to function optimally, even if you skipped the last scheduled breakdown and cleaning. Simply put: the AK-47 is a popular gun all over the world, has tons of fans, and has earned every ounce of the adoration poured out on it. That's why we wanted to make a website selling ONLY shirts featuring the most popular assault rifle in the world.
Who loves gun shirts in your family? Well in mine it is hubby's best friend who is like a brother to him. When I told him I had an AK-47 T-Shirt to review he begged for it so we let him have it. He was so happy to get it that the day it arrived in the mail he was here that night to pick the shirt up after he got out of work. The next day he called me from work telling me that everyone at his worked liked the "AK-47 Bullets Make Me Happy" T-Shirt . I am here to say my guys love these types of reviews.


Now for the giveaway: One lucky person will win "AK-47 Bullets Make Me Happy" T-Shirt in black in your chosen shirt size (small through extra-large). This is open to the US only and ends 7/3 @ 11:59 pm est. To enter, simply do the tasks on the Rafflecopter widget below and you're set to have a chance to win! Complete all the entries listed to better your chances to win. Remember you can't win if you don't enter.

Island Shifters by Valerie Zambito Book Review

Book Description:   
On the island of Massa, heroes are born not made. 

The idyllic lives of four young shifters living in the exiled land of Pyraan are shattered when a tour of legion duty gives witness to a brutal enemy invasion.  Born with magical prowess none has seen in over three hundred years, the friends become pivotal in a race against time to save a people they hardly know, but are sworn to protect.
The journey exacts a terrible price from Beck, Kiernan, Rogan and Airron as they battle demons, both real and personal, to save the island. 
But, whatever the chances, the shifters will fight.
The blood oath will have it no other way.

 
My Take on the book:  
 I loved the whole plot of the book. This was a fun, thrilling and exciting read. I like reading fantasy stories like this one. I did find it hard to put the book down because I wanted to keep reading to either find out how something ended or to see what was coming up next. I can't wait to read book #2.

Guest ~ The Big Top Cupcake Review and Giveaway ends 7/1

~ I have a Guest Review & Giveaway I am happy to be apart of to bring to my readers. I hope you enjoy! ~

I have joined Nancy from Penny Pincherholics in bringing you this wonderful review and giveaway of The Big Top Cupcake. If you're an avid baker or know someone who is, this is the giveaway to enter. Read on for more details on what deliciousness was ensued in Nancy's kitchen and how you can get one of these awesome bakeware sets for yourself.
Who likes cupcakes?
I do, I do!
Who likes BIG cupcakes?
I DO, I DO!
I'm sure I speak for all the dessert lovers out there when I say that there is no better way to satisfy your sweet tooth than with a ginormous cupcake. When I heard that I was given the opportunity to review the Big Top Cupcake pan, I was beyond ecstatic. All of the possible frosting flavors and fillings came rushing through my mind and I couldn't help but feel a sense of giddiness knowing that I'll be having a cupcake that's 10 times the size of a normal cupcake in my possession. Can you imagine? So when the Big Top Cupcake arrived at my doorstep, you already know what kind of excitement I was feeling. As usual, I ripped open the shipping box, grab the packaging out, and start reading everything from cover to cover. I wasted no time taking it to the kitchen and putting it to use. My husband looked at me like I was crazy because I had this huge smile on my face I almost looked crazy. Yes, that's what baking equipment does to me. Is that weird? I decided to make an English toffee buttermilk cake with a sweet orange glaze to drizzle over it. The thought of it made my mouth water and that only got me to working faster. So, my ginormous cupcake adventure began....
With the pans lightly sprayed and the batter all ready to go, I finally popped them into the oven and waited (im)patiently for the results....
English Toffee Buttermilk Cake With an Orange Glaze Drizzle
Doesn't it look yummy? The directions were so easy to follow and it came out just the way I wanted it to. A couple things that I did to make everything run as smoothly as I expected were to spray the pans very lightly with non-stick spray and level out the cakes when they were out of the oven and cooled. The directions mentioned this and I followed it to the letter....I'm glad I did because things worked out perfectly. The pans are very sturdy and can stand up to the heat without getting warped or damaged. The best part is, it's refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher safe! So convenient. I have to say, I think I've found a new baking toy. There are so many possibilities with this pan and you're not limited to just making it look like a cupcake. As you can see above, I simply did a glaze drizzle to show hopefully show you how it looks when they come out of the oven. Next time, I'm thinking of doing a cute little bee hive. Oh the possibilities.... I am absolutely ecstatic that I had the opportunity to try out The Big Top Cupcake. It fit so perfectly into my lifestyle that I couldn't be more happy about doing this review. And guess what? This review is not the only thing that came with this awesome bakeware.....there's a giveaway too! You all have a chance to win one for yourself. I can feel the excitement from everyone as I'm typing. I know how you feel, trust me. One lucky winner will be a proud owner of a Big Top Cupcake. Giveaway starts Sunday June 17 and ends Sunday July 1. Open to US and Canadian residents only. To enter, simply do the tasks on the Rafflecopter widget below and you're set to have a chance to win! Complete all the entries listed to better your chances to win. Remember you can't win if you don't enter.
