Keep Your Electronics Charged on the Go: Lumsing Car Charger Review

I don't know how many times I'm in the car with some of my electronic devices, especially my phone, and realize I could use a charge. Now that I regularly use bluetooth while driving, because my phone isn't plugged into my car, it's often dying on me. So frustrating! Especially when it dies mid-song that I'm totally rocking out to!

I found this lovely little cigarette lighter car charger from Lumsing, perfect for charging my phone (with a USB outlet located on the top of the charger). Not only do you get a USB outlet, but it also has THREE different sockets for anything you charge via the Cigarette lighter in your car.  You can plug anything and everything into this handy little charger, and all at once! 

The charger is a pretty stainless steel, sturdy charger, and comes in this glamorous red, or you can get it in black, grey, or white if you prefer

The size is great and as you can see here, fits perfectly in my center console of my car, where my cigarette charger outlet happens to be. It also provides a total output power of up to 70w, making it perfect for charging up that phone, your GPS, and dashboard camera all at once! I found it handy for using to plug my handheld vacuum into while cleaning my car too!

You can also use this on boats that have a cigarette lighter built in too, which I totally plan on doing next summer for keeping my electronics on board charged and ready to use! 

This handy little charger is also built with high quality standards, so you can be sure your electronics will be safe and protected while using with this car charger. It is built in-fuse, uses anti-corrosion metal connectors, and also uses heavy duty copper wires to guarantee the safety of your electronics while using them with this charger. No overloading or overheating of your electronics while being charged with this lovely car charger! 

This charger works with many electronics too including iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxys, Notes, and more!

I'm completely obsessed with the handiness of this car charger. I love that it's so easy to use, looks great in my car, and keeps all of my electronics charged and working flawlessly!

The Little Miracle Worker Proven to Aid Weight Loss: Vita Optimum Garcinia Cambogia Review + GIVEAWAY

It's no secret, I'm addicted to Garcinia Cambogia. I've been using it for a few months now and love the results I get from using it regularly, along with daily exercise and healthy eating.

If you haven't heard of Garcinia Cambogia yet, first of all, HOW?! This stuff hit the market earlier this year and has been blowing off the shelves all over the country! Why? Because it works!

Trust me, I've always been highly skeptical of pills or anything promising weight loss that isn't exercise or good ol' healthy food. I had a good friend first turn me on to this product this spring. My friend like me, is into health and fitness and she works out on the regular and does her best to eat right. I know she is smart and doesn't fall for all the diet and weight loss gimmicks out there, so when she told me about this product and how it was really working for her, I was listening! My friend had a baby within the last year and has been struggling to no end to lose the last 10 pounds of her extra baby weight but had hit a plateau months before she started using Garcinia Cambogia. Once she got her hands on this amazing little appetite suppressant, she quickly shed those last ten pounds, because she was able to stop eating when full and not divulge in too big of portions all of us Americans are unfortunately completely use to.

I perked up when she started telling me this, because while I try to eat extra healthy, following a very high fruit and vegetable, vegetarian diet, I struggle with eating too much, and splurging on lots of sugary things too.

When I first got my Vita Optimum Garcinia Cambogia supplements, contacting 60% HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid from Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind extract), I couldn't wait to try it out. You simply take two of these tablets first thing in the morning before eating, and you notice a difference right away!

Vita Optimum's Garcinia Cambogia is based out of San Francisco. Established in 2013 with the goal of replacing high priced vitamins and supplements with reasonably priced, high quality products.

On the first day after taking my Vita Optimum Garcinia Cambogia, I noticed a big difference! I would eat my breakfast smoothie and green juice, and then instead of being hungry by 1 or 2 pm for lunch, I found that I wasn't hungry until about 4 pm! I made myself eat a protein bar as a snack, even though I wasn't super hungry, just because I'm not used to going so long without food.

I was then able to eat a light dinner, a couple of small pieces of dark chocolate, and then head to bed a few hours later.

When using Vita Optimum's Garcinia Cambogia regularly, I notice a big difference in my appetite. I'm not nearly hungry as often as normal, and when I do eat, I'm able to eat less (if I actually remember to slow down and chew my food more). I'll admit, I'm a very quick eater, so I still struggle with keeping my portions in check. But I seem to be more conscious of my overall eating while taking this supplement, so in a way it does remind me to slow down and actually taste my food, and wait for my brain to get the signal that my tummy is full, rather than just hurrying to finish my plate.

I do notice this supplement is not as effective if I don't work out and eat right, so be sure you are doing that while taking Garcinia Cambogia. This isn't a miracle weight loss pill but it's a great aid to help you eat less when you're trying to lose weight. You absolutely need to be eating right though. I also notice on days I did not work out, I wasn't as effective at reaching my weight loss goals while taking this supplement. Exercise is important. Even if you can just get out and take the dog for a walk around the neighborhood or go for a quick bike ride with a friend. Any movement is better than none!

One small thing I did notice while taking this supplement. It does tend to make me a little bit irritable. My friend who takes it regularly says she has never noticed that, so it may just be me, but I feel it's important to disclose that anyway.

Also, Vita Optimum's Garcinia Cambogia is clinically tested, all natural, and is non-stimulating.  It is 100% safe and is FDA Registered and NSF Certified, so you can feel extra good about taking it!

Time-Saving DIY Beauty Hacks That Every Girl Needs to Kn

Not everyone is born with perfect looks. It is important to look and feel beautiful even before looking for ways to enhance your overall appearance. For all those in need, makeup and quick beauty hacks are always there. Be it eye shadow or your choice of accessories, each and every aspect plays a crucial role, and it is important to have time-saving DIY hacks handy.

To get it right, try these tips that will enhance your features and style with easy solutions that save time as well.

Quick Hacks

Hair: The first thing to keep in mind is to style your hair smartly. If you are short on time, use dry shampoos and leave-in conditioners that save you washing time. Try a leave-in dry shampoo for clean and bouncy hair without any effort.

Forehead: Got a patchy forehead? Don’t waste time fixing it with a concealer. Instead, take a face powder and dab it evenly on your face to get that spotless look. Ideally, keep it one tone lighter than your natural skin tone, but if it looks too loud, gently remove using a wet cloth. It will not get completely wiped; it will just lighten a bit.

Nose: Don’t feel your nose is as smooth as it should be? Scrub it right away. No scrub on hand? Try a homemade scrub that you can easily prepare by grinding papaya seeds with salt and curd. Rub it on your nose for about 10 minutes, and then wash off.

Not So Quick Ones

Glamorous Eyes: Looking for beauty tips for your lovely eyes? Be patient. Tips to get glamorous eyes might sound easy, but when you actually get down to business, they are difficult. The trick is to draw a very light outline using an eye pencil and then fill up the empty space.

If you are having trouble putting on mascara, try baby powder. Keep a small bowl of powder and cotton ready before you apply the first coat. Then gently rub the powder-dabbed cotton on your eyelashes, and put on a second coat. Wait for a few minutes to let it dry. This trick will make the eyelashes look thicker and fuller.

Next is eye shadow in the list of complicated-to-apply eye makeup products. If you don’t know how to use eye shadow, go by the outline rule again. This time, there are three of them. Closer to the lashes is the darkest layer, which should be the smallest in size. The next layer will be a little lighter, and the lightest shade of the eye shadow goes on the top.

Lipstick Troubles: Gladly, the outline rule rarely fails. It applies to lipstick as well. Just outline the lips and then fill them up using a pencil. Finish by using a lipstick and a nude gloss for that added dash of glamour

Rescue DIY Hacks

Makeup is just one aspect of beauty. It can miraculously change the way you look, but good-looking skin must also feel healthy. With DIY beauty tips and hacks, you can get glowing skin, hair, and nails instantly. Try some of these hacks, which are perfect substitutes for chemical-based face treatments that will cost you the world in a decent parlor.

Gorgeous Hair: Do not be bogged down by frizzy, oily, or dull hair. Beer and vinegar take care of most hair problems. Rinse your hair with one of these if your hair seems too dull. If it’s frizzy, you can also try rinsing with carbonated water. All three liquids will give you gorgeous-looking, silky-smooth hair instantly.

Face Cleansing: Concealers and foundations are always there, but maybe you are just looking for clear, glistening skin today. To get that, try some homemade remedies that will give you soft and supple skin in just 10 minutes. If you have oily skin, you can try an oatmeal and milk mask, tomato and lemon mask, olive oil and lemon mask, or a mint and rosewater mask. For dry skin, easy-to-make-at-home masks are made of egg yolk and olive oil; banana, yogurt and honey; crushed avocado with honey; and papaya and strawberry.

Under-Eye and Lip Treatments: Everything great about your looks can be spoiled by dark under-eye circles. If you want to get rid of them, try teabags or potato slices or cucumber slices. They provide temporary results in the short run and long-term under-eye solutions too.

For dry and chapped lips, put some Vaseline on and brush gently using a toothbrush till they become cherry red. Remember not to overdo, or they might start bleeding.

Solving beauty problems is not a big task; you just need tried and tested beauty hacks—right from how to use eye shadow to getting instantly clear skin. Try these tips, and discover time-saving ways to look and feel gorgeous.
