KINGA Anion Hair Straightener and Hair Curling 2 in 1 Iron Comb Hair Brush Review

I received the KINGA Anion Hair Straightener and Hair Curling 2 in 1 Iron Comb Hair Brush Electrical Ceramics Anion locking Moisture PTC Heating Fast Fever No Hurt to Hair (Misc.) for review, and I was excited to try it out. I have figured out that I like brushing action as opposed to the closing action of regular flat irons.
In fact, hair straightener brushes are all the rage, but most these days look like paddle brushes. This one is different, and those differences actually make this brush better than the other types. I love that it is so easy to curl the ends of my hair with this. Also, it still has the great brushing action that I like so much more than a traditional straightening iron.

I do divide my hair into sections when I use this, and it straightens really well while leaving a nice amount of body. I use this Kinga Anion Hair Straightener every day now, and I love it. The only thing I'd like more is maybe just a smidge more heat.

Pixie Menstrual Cup Review

I had always considered trying a menstrual cup like the Pixie Cup, so when I saw it available at a discount for review, I jumped at the chance to try it. As luck would have it, the Pixie Cup arrived one day before my monthly visitor, so I was able to use it for an entire cycle. 

I'm not going to lie, the first time I inserted it was difficult to figure out, but I tried both fold methods and one ended up working out. The first time I took it out was also difficult, but again, practice makes perfect. Be sure you break the seal to get it out. I was worried there would be too much to deal with with the blood, but it wasn't as bad as I'd imagined. 

This cup worked great. I was even at a theme park all day on the second day of my cycle, and I used this the entire day and it worked flawlessly. The little wipes it came with came in handy for emptying it in public restrooms, and I will buy more of those wipes to keep with me when I'm out and about and using the Pixie Cup. 

Now that it's not in use, I'm storing it in the little carrying pouch that came with it. I must say, overall, I'm completely sold on this product. I will be using it each time from now on, and I'm so happy to say that I am totally done with tampons. I wish I'd tried this a long time ago. So much easier to deal with ultimately. 

KABOOCHY 5 piece Ceramic Knife Set Review

I received the KABOOCHY 5 piece Ceramic Knife Set for free to test them out and write a review, and I was super excited for them to arrive. I happen to have extra tall cabinets in my home, and there's not a lot of space for most knife sets, but because this one is so unique and stylish, I thought the knife set would fit under there really well, and I was right. The set fits perfectly and they look really nice on my counter.

I love these knives for so many reasons. They are unique looking on my counter instead of just being in a regular old knife block. I love having that unique look in my kitchen too. It is nice to see that something like knives can actually be stylish and look decorative even instead of just being stuck in a regular old boring knife block. Any previous knives I had were purely about function, and these have both those, which is a lovely attribute for them to have.

The set includes the following knives:

  • 6" Chef's Knife
  • 5" Paring Knife
  • 4" Utility Knife
  • 3" fruit Knife

Of course, the knives are actually really good at cutting, which is their job, so that is obviously one of the most important aspects. The handles are easy to grip and each one is balanced well for chopping or cutting. Plus, these knives are sharp and are staying sharp through quite a bit of use and cleaning. I love that the handles are antibacterial bamboo too because I cut a lot of chicken and other things in my kitchen that could possibly carry bacteria.

I highly recommend this Kaboochy 5 piece ceramic knife set for any kitchen. It's a wonderful set of knives both for using and for looking at.
