Review: Paperless Post #invitations #tryitTuesday @paperlesspost


A couple weeks ago, Paperless Post asked me to try their service and review my experience.

As you know, I am a very social person. When I organize events, I try to find creative ways to invite my friends because sending a plain email is too basic for me.

After trying it out, I can wholeheartedly recommend that if you are looking for a super cute way to send invitations to your next event, use Paperless Post.

It is very simple once you set up your profile and purchase coins for your account. You have to browse the designs and edit the layout of the card and the envelope.

I think choosing a design was the hardest part! They are all so cute!

Then you email your newly designed card to your contacts. You will receive an email letting you know your invitations were sent and a link for you to manage your RSVPs.

Using digital invitations is relatively new, but I think that more and more people are looking to use this part of their event planning. When you plan your next party, baby shower, or other event, you cannot go wrong if you use Paperless Post to create your invitations. These invitation designs are classy and stylish.

Try It Tuesday: Cat Toys #cats #catsoftwitter #toys

This post is made possible by my cute furbaby Blaze.

Blaze is my kitty baby. Keeping it real as a cat mom, he is spoiled.

I buy him lots of toys. Honestly, I don’t know why because he seems to have more fun with the box instead of the actual toy. Still, I persist. I guess I am trying to figure out which toy might be that unicorn of cat toys that he will actually play with and not get tired of it.

Here are some of my latest purchases:

Kitty Flicks (by Kitty Boinks ) – flexible braided nylon that you flick across the room
TOW opinion: Blaze would not follow my hand to see where the flick would land. He looked at me with a bored expression and then walked off. In the opposite direction.

SmartyKat Interactive Cat Toys (by SmartyKat ) – launcher toy filled with catnip
TOW opinion: Blaze played with this for about 20 minutes one day and then would not play with it anymore. I am not sure what happened that turned him off to the toy.

Mouse Ball (by Petsport USA ) – catnip flavored ball with an easy drag tail
TOW opinion: Blaze liked this because of the tail. I guess this toy saved mice lives that day. It is not very sturdy. Blaze does not play with it anymore because it is in pieces now.

LED Motion Activated Cat Ball (by Ethical Pet ) – LED flash ball that is activated by touch
TOW opinion: Blaze would not play with it long enough to keep the LED activated.

TOW Final Word: The only toy that Blaze played with the most was the mouse ball. Because of the tail, he thought he was catching a real mouse.

Hytek Gar Essential Oil Case #TRYitTuesday

This week I am talking about essential oil cases. This is a necessary item if you use essential oils and want to transport them.

Hytek Gear Essential Oil Carrying Case Holds 30 Bottles (5ml-15ml), Black 

This is what they say

  • Professionally Sewn – High Quality Fabric and Zipper.
  • Soft padded cloth interior to protect bottles. Holds up to 30 Bottles – 5ml, 10ml, 15ml.
  • Compatible with all brands of Essential Oils!
  • Top Handle for easy transportation. Perfect to travel with all of your oils safely.

TOW Opinion
I love this case because it is durable and the right size for me to carry my oils to classes. I mostly have 15ml bottles in there and they fit snugly. When I walk, the bottles are not jostling around.

I have a few larger bottles (30ml) that I keep in the back because I have to force them, but it is not an issue. Considering that the case is not for the bigger bottles, I knew that it was a possibility that they would not fit. It is a tight fit, but I am not stressing the seams.

I like the fact that the handle is on top so that when I carry the case, all bottles remain upright.

TOW Final word: BUY. The entire case is good quality and I highly recommend it.

Shealicious Scalp Relief #TryItTuesday #NaturalHairCare #BlackHair

Shealicious Scalp Relief
Shea butter Conditioning Treatment + avocado and rosemary oils

I bought this because it is a conditioning deep treatment to help with dry, itchy scalp. It said that it can be used for all types of hair. My hair is relaxed. Many of the products to be used on itchy scalp sometimes will strip the relaxer.

It smells so good. On the package, they say something about not eating it. I thought they were being melodramatic until I opened it.

This. Is. The. Best Smelling Conditioner!

That is saying a lot because conditioners usually smell really good. I did not want to discard the container just so that I could smell it. I felt like I was addicted to the scent. It smells delicious. It is sweet, herbal, and fresh all in one.

Once I regained my focus as to the reason why opened the container in the first place, I applied the conditioner cream as the directions instructed. After leaving it on for the allotted time, I rinsed my hair. My hair was soft and manageable.

I tried other varieties of this brand, but I always come back to the Shea butter Conditioning Treatment + avocado and rosemary oils. I feel like this is the best one for me.

TOW Final Word: This is my new favorite conditioner. It is not an exaggeration when I say that I am totally in love with the smell. I wish I could find a lotion that smelled like this. I would lather myself in it all day, every day. It smells delicious!!! Totally recommend!

Try It Tuesday Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme #TeaTime #tryittuesday


I have been remiss in regularly sharing my product reviews as part of my Try It TUESDAY meme. I hope to do better in 2017.

Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme 

I am not usually an Earl Grey tea drinker, but it was so good that I had to share.

I cannot tell you what temperature I brew my tea but the water is close to boiling. I have a kettle that heats the water to boiling and then turns off. I doubt the water loses too much heat in the time it takes for me make my cup of tea.

They called this Earl Grey Supreme because it is a mix of for black teas, Silvertips, and Bergamot.

About the company: In 1970 John Harney, Master Tea Blender, embarked on a mission to share his love for tea. Harney & Son Tea selection offers over 200 varieties of the highest quality leaves. The Harvey family personally sources their tea from the most reputable, established estates and garden throughout Asia and India.

Why do I  ❤ love ❤ this tea? It is full of flavor and richness with a hint of citrus. Usually, I flavor my steeped black tea with a little cream and sugar. This tea has a natural sweetness so that I did not feel like it needed any sugar.

TOW Final Word: Buy or Pass
BUY! I have come to realize that this is an excellent quality tea in comparison to earl grey varieties by other brands. If you are a tea connoisseur, you will definitely enjoy this tea. If you like the occasional black tea, you cannot go wrong with having this in the pantry.
