Vinyl Disorder "In loving memory" Custom Decal Review

When I found out that I was chosen to do a review for another Vinyl Disorder decal I couldn't have been happier. I have been impressed with the last few things I got from Vinyl Disorder and this one was no exception. The vinyl decal was amazingly detailed and put together just as I had imagined. I wanted to do the review for this decal to have a remembrance Vinyl made for my mother in memory of her mother who passed a few years back. We both miss my grandmother greatly so this was a great way for me to help to keep my grandmothers memory with us always. But back to the review. The detail in the "In Loving Memory" vinyl is amazing but do to the intense detail and fine lines it does make it a little bit more difficult to install. 
Just something to keep in mind when you order your vinyl. I decided that I would order my vinyl reversed. That way it could be mounted to the inside of the car window and can be read from the outside of the car as well as the rear view mirror. If you would rather mount it to a door, wall, or mirror then you may want to consider getting it standard rather then reversed.

Ateevia Botanica Review

 So I was given the opportunity to try out a pain relief cream called Ateevia Botanica and as I am a constant sufferer of lower back pain and knee pain I jumped at the opportunity. So here is my review of the product and the affect it had for me. Now keep in mind this is just a personal opinion review of the product and that the results will differ for every user. For me it works rather well for muscle and joint pain just not on my deep pain. But being that it is a topical cream I am glad that it worked as well as it did. I have tried many different creams to ease my pain and I have only found 2 that are actually effective.
Ateevia Botanica is one of those creams and I can say that I will be more then happy to continue using there products for as long as I am in need of some quick pain relief. Now I know what your all thinking. Is there any downside to the cream? The only thing that I found a little off putting was the color of the cream its self. The smell may also be something that some people don't like but I find it rather soothing. And last but not least the texture. Does it leave a greasy feel to the skin? Unfortunately right after applying it does feel a little bit greasy but in no time the cream dries and makes your skin feel smooth almost like you were applying lotion. Over all if anyone asks me to recommend a pain relief cream AB Ateevia Botanica will be the one that I recommend.

Vinyl Disorder Family Car Vinyl Decal

I just got an opportunity to review a car vinyl decal from Vinyl Disorder and I have to say that yet again they do not disappoint. The family of Zombies is the one I chose and this decal is just as good of quality as the sign that I got from Vinyl Disorder. The colors are bright and vibrant the edges clean and precise and I love the fact that they are pretty much peal and stick. They do very well in the sticking department as well. I have had some vinyls that will not stick on some surfaces like orange peel walls and even some corrugated wall boards.

As of now I still have not found a surface that these will not stick to. Even though they stick really well they still can be removed with no damage to the surface it is attached to. The first one that I got I decided I wanted to make a light up sign with a few other items purchased from Homedepot. It turned out great not only does it light up the way I wanted it to but the sign itself is of really good quality. I decided to include my list of parts and design idea for the sign in my last review. I hope you will take the time to check it out as well at Frugal Washington Mommy.

Back to the review. I will be recommending this company to anyone looking for a great quality vinyl decal for the wall, car, window, or anything else that you can think to put your decal on at a really good price. If you are interested in checking them out but don't have the cash right now, then take your chance with winning a free vinyl on my giveaway courtesy of VinylDisorder.

Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil Review

I am proud to be writing this review for "Tropical Traditions virgin coconut oil."  A 100% hand made virgin oil made in the traditional way of hand shaving the pulp from the insides of the coconuts, and going through the painstaking process of pressing the pulp to make the oil. Now due to the fact that this process is done by hand and not by machine it makes this not only a great quality product, it makes it one of the few companies trying to keep with traditions and keep the old methods alive. They are also trying to keep their community alive by using local products and keeping the company employee's local too!

Now I'm not going to bore you with a whole background on the company. If you would like to know more about the company and their products you can check them out at their website tropical traditions. So back to the review. Being a baker I have used a lot of products that are supposed to be healthier then using butter or lard, and I have to say this has become my new favorite. Not only does it incorporate very well, but it has a very subtle flavor so you hardly know that it wasn't butter you used. There are many benefits to using virgin coconut oil as a replacement for butter and fats, not just for the fat content alone but also the health benefits. Since there are very few calories in coconut oil it makes it not just the smart choice but also the healthier choice, rather then lard, butter, veg oil, peanut oil, or even olive oil. And due to the lower fat and calorie content it makes whatever you are making a very creamy and smooth with little to no flavor difference with the final product. I am very pleased with this product and I will definitely be recommending Tropical Traditions to anyone and everyone I know who is looking to try to eat healthier and live better. And even some people just looking to be healthier sometimes. If you are interested in giving this product a try then don't forget to get your entries in for my giveaway. I am sure that you will be pleasantly surprised with this company's products and services, as well as the quality of the food you create with it. Thank you for reading. If you have any questions or comments I am always open to hear them so please feel free to write and ask me anything.

Collage It Pro review

       I recently got approved to test a program called Collage It Pro and write a review. I will also be able to offer a giveaway for a few lucky winners to get a copy of this great program. I have made a few sample collages to show you the quality of the layouts as well as the speed in which you can make these great collages. As a matter of fact the 4 different collages that I made for this review took me 15 minutes to make. Meaning that it took me less then 5 minutes a piece for these great picture collages of my family and my beautiful baby girl. I am very happy with this program and the ease of use. I think that even a novice should be able to figure this program out. It is very simple in it's layout and use. Collage It functions flawlessly with it's drag and drop and the ability to randomize not just the pictures but also the layout. Just tell it how many pictures you want to use and if you want a border, even if you want the images to be put on a kilter like the ones that I chose to make.
I don't know anyone who wouldn't love a program like this especially if you are into photography like I am. This program is even easy enough for your child to use. As long as you can use a mouse and know what file your pictures are in. You too can create an amazing collage in a matter of minutes. Don't believe me that it is this easy to use. Well why not give it a try. You can check it out at If you want to get the full program though you will have to sign up for my giveaway. I will have 20 licenses for the pro version to be given out at the end of the giveaway. So get to it and best of luck to all on winning this amazing program and I hope that you have as much fun with it as I have. Good Luck.

Filter Queen Defender Air Purifier Review

So I went to the home show in Everett WA to check out some of the new products they had available and one of the stands that I just so happened upon was a Company called "FilterQueen." A leader in the industry of Air filters and Vacuum cleaners. There filtering systems will remove down to .01 micron particles from your surfaces as well as the air you breath. Just to put a little perspective on things. You know those large over sized hepa filter systems that you see at almost all Dr's offices. Well Hepa filters although good will only remove down to .03 micron particles. So you still have more small particles that you are missing with that expensive hepa system. Unfortunately most of the particles that are floating in the air we breath are actually smaller then .03 microns. That means that the FilterQueen system is 3x better at cleaning the air you breath. I was not expecting to be interested in the product when they first asked me if they could stop by my house to give me a demo of the units they offer and let me play around with them a little bit myself. Now I wasn't expecting to buy anything when they came but I have to say that these units are very impressive. Both the Air purifier and the vacuum use the same filtering properties which means that the air that comes out of the vacuum is of the same quality that comes out of the air purifier.

 The vacuum also offers plenty of fun attachments and tools for pretty much any job. Now I have used a lot of different vacuums in my time and this is by far the most impressive. This vacuum has so much suction that i decided to try it on the rugs next to my entry. They always seem to look like they are covered in mud and leaves from people walking in and out. However just a few passes over the rugs with the "FilterQueen Majestic" and the rugs look as though they were shampooed. This is not an exaggeration this vacuum really does this good of a job. Ever since I started to use the Majestic Vacuum and the Defender Air Purifier from "FilterQueen" my home has already begun to smell cleaner and I can breath easier. Which is a good thing for me since I am an asthmatic and already have trouble breathing around this time of year. As someone who enjoys clean air quality and a clean house. I would definitely recommend these products to any and all. The filter replacement cost is about the same. But the air purifier only has to be changed once a year unless it is being used in a large room with a lot of outside airflow but if used in the manner intended a filter should last for about a year. The vacuum on the other hand is dependant on how much you suck up with it. The canister will hold up to 16lbs worth of dirt and misc. The filter does not need to be changed on this unit until you begin to loose suction and at that point you just dump the whole bin out in the trash and put a new filter in. Both units come with a great warranty! The Defender has a lifetime warranty on the motor and components. The Majestic has a great warranty as well covering the motor for the first few years then if you have any problems after that they have a motor replacement plan where you just pay the cost of the motor and they will come out to you and swap them out for you. I am very happy with these products and I can't imagine not having them now. My old vacuum was a joke and as far as my old ionizers for cleaning the air they sucked. In just 10 min with the defender on in our bedroom there was no more smell (we put it next to the diaper pail) and no more stuff floating through the air.
