Acu-Life Pro Fit Earplugs Review

7:23 PM Posted by Michelle

I was sent a pair of Acu-Life Pro Fit Earplugs to review last week. I received them on Thursday which was really quick. I am always impressed with fast shipping to start things off. Well, as I was sitting watching T.V I saw the package sitting on my end table so I thought humm, this would be the perfect time to try them out.Well as soon as I opened the pack I thought humm, this is different. You receive a little storage bag that is much like a zip lock only smaller and divided into compartments that say left and right, then you have a little container that look's like two connecting  bubbles with blue soft putty in one and white in the other. Then you have your instructions. These are custom made so they fit only your ears for the perfect fit. How cool is that?? And they last up to six months. Okay the goal is to open the container and pinch off half the blue and half the white and kneed them together no more than about 30 seconds until they are an aqua color. This was so easy and to make sure I only took half of each I rolled mine into little balls first which made it easier for me. Make sure to close the other half's up tightly for later. After you mix them then you fit it to the inside of your ear. I started with my left ear and I used a big mirror to look into, because you may be able to do it blindly with out one but, I knew I couldn't. Looking into the mirror I pushed it lightly into the inner part of my ear making sure not to leave a lot of excess hanging, and there is more than enough. After I have it where I wanted it, I waited. The packaged suggest ten minutes and you shouldn't talk or chew while they are setting. When it came time to pull it out I was amazed at how perfect they came out and all you do is pull from the top and out they come. Then you do the same thing with the other one and when you have both done you can store them in the storage bag provided, So here's a quick rundown. They are easy peasy, custom fitted so you have a personalized fit for day or night and very affordable and can be used for six months. and they are 29 NRR (Noise Reduction Rating) when used as directed. And trust me these block out a ton of noise. I'm the type that when I read I just can't hear background noises as they distract me so these were heavenly for when I was reading and I tried them when I went to bed and they worked so good I didn't hear my alarm clock the next morning...lol These definitely get my seal of approval and just think of all of the money you will save using these and unlike other earplugs these will be made just for you, no forcing them in or worrying about them falling out. These are Amazing and you can check them out below:

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Review

9:27 PM Posted by Michelle

I was so excited to get my jar of gold label virgin coconut oil. I have been reading about it for a while and really wanted to try it. It arrived in just a few days which was very fast shipping and it came very well packaged, no cheap wrapping here. First I was surprised to see that it was a solid and not a oil which I like everyone else is probably use to. It reminded me of white candle wax and surprisingly I could not detect a coconut scent like I thought. I also thought that it would be very strong but it was exactly the opposite. It was late in the day when I first received it so I put in on the shelf for a new day. Yesterday I first tried it in a chocolate cake. I melted it first in a pan and then added it like you normally would along with the other ingredients. While melting it I noticed it gave off a nice coconut fragrance which was nice but, I was just hoping that a coconut flavor wouldn't transfer to the cake because this is going to be a chocolate cake. Well, when everything was done the moment of truth was at hand and the verdict was: AWESOME and no coconut flavor just yummy goodness, and it was a hit. So with the baked good under my wing using the gold label virgin coconut oil I knew next I would have to fry something and give it to the toughest judges of all my mom and a picky ten year old. So with that I tried chicken breasts and grilling franks. I cooked them like you normally would in a fry pan on top of the stove and again that super coconut scent filled the kitchen and let me also tell you it doesn't take much of this stuff to do the job which is great you know what they say less is more  =) Well, I finished the chicken first and my mom started eating dinner and I just stood there watching and she said Yum this tastes even better with this oil I was smiling from ear to ear. No coconut flavor just juicy breaded chicken that tasted better than when cooked with regular vegetable oil. I truly am amazed at this product, and remember it's organic which is even better for you. The grilling franks were such a hit I was asked to make them again soon and that's a miracle for the worlds pickiest ten year old....All in all when this is out you can bet I will be running back to order some more because I always want to have this in the kitchen.  You should visit their web page they have so much more than oil. They have honey, peanut butter, coconut flakes and lots, and lots more so head on over there and take a look.  Tropical Traditions
