3 D Moon Lamp

<a href="https://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP1eaf769040522a629072ce26dd54ca0d" rel="nofollow" style="display: none;">I have been into lamps lately and this lamp is one that I was very interested in getting. It is a 3 D Moon Lamp. You can charge it or leave it plugged in to use it. The charge lasts a few hours. A few of the features I like about it: You can change its colors by tapping the little metal button on it then when you touch the moon itself the light dims or changes tone. You can also do this with the remote control that comes with the lamp.
I have been using the lamp as a night light and as a decoration in my living room.
My kids enjoy it as well and like choosing what color we will keep it at for the night.

Here is the box it comes in along with the charger. I put the wooden stand together and there you have it...your 3D Moon Lamp! I looks beautiful even without being on.
Now here are the different colors.

          

Enjoy this video of me changing the colors by tapping the little metal button on the top, but you can always use the remote control to change the colors or the tones, making it dimmer or brighter. It really is a great ambience light, giving the room a cozy feeling.
I also hope to use it for photo shoots at night. I think it'll be great for that.

Thanks for reading. Hope you like the lamp as much as I do.

Tri-Fold Mirror

Today I'm going to show you the Asani Tri-Fold mirror. It has led lights all around the middle part. The lights can be dimmed or brightened. It can be used with batteries or with a USB cable, that comes with the mirror. It doesn't come with the plug to plug it into the wall, but I just used my phone charger. One side of the opening sides of the mirror is divided into two mirrors one is 2x and the other 3x.  I also received a small 10x hand mirror with this mirror.

I was interested in getting this mirror for a few reasons: I am a makeup artist and this seemed like the perfect thing for my dresser or for taking to photo shoots (since it is light to carry and battery operated). My daughter loves mirrors too, so I also thought she would enjoy using this mirror.

All in all we are very pleased with this mirror and will spend many hours using it.

Goggles

My son recently joined the swim team here in town and is now swims everyday from Monday to Friday for an hour and a half. Needless to say he needed some decent goggles for practice. These were our choice.
Chose the blue ones because I had some blue ones as a child and always loved how the made the water seem so much bluer.
Here a picture of the different nose adjusting pieces that come with it in case you need to change the size. To me this is a great feature to have as sometimes the eye part of googles can be too tight. There is also a nose plug and a pair of ear plugs as well. Don't think he will use the ear plugs right now, maybe when he gets a little older.

Close up of the goggles and the nose plug. 

There he is, ready to get swimming!
Very happy with his new swim gear.

Easter Eggs and Hunt


A workmate of mine raises chickens and brought some to work for us! So we had plenty of eggs to paint for Easter. We painted them three different ways.
1. cup of water with drops of food coloring in it, dip the eggs in the water and there you have it
2. shaving cream with food coloring, drop egg in mix around, rinse
3. rice in a cup, drip food coloring in it, mix, place egg in and shake

Then we had an egg hunt with clues to guess where the place was where the egg was hidden. At the end of the hunt was the treasure...Easter bucket of goodies!
My kids enjoyed it and my daughter kept saying it was the "Best Easter ever."
It was that and the fact that we spent the afternoon at the Aquatic Center swimming, after missing the date for their Easter activities.

Cube Timer

A timer for all sorts of situations. Would be great for cooking of getting things done in general. I can think of several uses, timing kids TV or gaming time, exercise time, bath time.
Eager to see how this works.

Metal Detector

My husband has been into metal detectors on and off for a while, but has never owned one. He always borrowed them from my dad. He recently decided on one of them! Minelab GO-FIND 44 Metal Detector
I'll write a review once it gets hotter and he is able to get out and treasure hunt!
Have you ever gone detecting or do you know someone who goes?

Have a nice weekend. It's a beautiful day here! I hope to get some sun!

Bath Bomb Kit

On the 5th it was my daughter's 10th birthday and she loves making things. Lately she has been super into making slime, and when I say super I mean SUPER, making slime everyday super. So for her birthday she wanted something different and asked for a bath bomb DIY set. I got her this one. ALEX Spa DIY Bath Bombs It comes with enough material/product to make six bath bombs, three at a time. So right after she got her presents we made 3 bath bombs. This kit comes with 2 molds, a heart and a ball. It worked well. We made colorful ones. She's already used 2 of them in her bath. Once the product is all gone I will use the molds to make more when I figure out how and where to get the materials I need.

Decorating Coffee Mugs

I want to decorate a coffee mug for the bus driver at the school where I work as he is leaving.
I worked with him for a few months on the bus as a bus monitor and was pretty sad when he told me he was leaving. So I decided to get these Sharpie Oil-Based Paint Markers and a white mug at the Dollar Tree and give it a shot. I'll update this post and add pictures as soon as I get it done.
It will have to be soon as he is driving for us for a week after spring break which is next week. Better get on it.

Summer Lights

Every since I moved to the USA and faced the cold, snowy winter of Ohio my hair has gotten darker. I truly missed the Brazilian sunny summer days and my blonde hair. To make matters worse I cut my hair and gave it a shaggy look which chopped off the little blonde I had left. My sister then introduced me to L'Oreal Paris Summer Lights Lightening Gelee Kit, From Dark Blonde to Light Blonde Hair [02] 3.4 oz (Pack of 2). I have been using it after washing and blow drying my hair. I apply it all over my hair, then blow dry my hair again. I must admit that it works! And I absolutely love the results. It has made my hair blonde again and it doesn't dry your hair out. I doesn't smell either. I have problems with smells and if it did have a weird smell would not be using it.
I had never seen this product in Brazil. So if I ever go back I'll have to stock up on it!
Have you ever tried this? What are your thoughts? Did you like it?


Desde que eu me mudei para os EUA e tive que enfrentar o inverno frio do estado de Ohio meu cabelo tem escurecido. Sinto falta do sol brasileiro! Pra piorar cortei o cabelo e la se foi o que restava do meu cabelo loiro. Foi ai que a minha irmã me apresentou esse produto da L'Oréal L'Oreal Paris Summer Lights Lightening Gelee Kit, From Dark Blonde to Light Blonde Hair [02] 3.4 oz (Pack of 2) . Não  sei se da para achar no Brasil. Eu uso assim, lavo o cabelo, seco com a secadora passo o produto generosamente e seco novamente com a secadora. O produto não tem cheiro, ate porque detesto cheiros. Estou adorando o resultado. Usei bastante por algumas semanas e depois que clareou do jeito que eu queria comecei a usar uma ou duas vezes por semana.
