OOLAA

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**

The inspiration for OOLAA came from Jacqueline’s mom.
“When I was a teenager I moved away from my family in Ohio to Boston to train as a competitive figure skater. Each month I eagerly awaited the arrival of a special package from my mom. I loved the surprise of discovering what was inside, and the shared joy the packages created between me and my mom as we learned about new things together.
Although I didn’t realize it at the time, the packages opened my eyes to a world outside my bubble – a world beyond the rink, and beyond school. My skating dreams were cut short by a dislocated knee, but as that door closed another opened when I was accepted to Harvard just months later. I graduated with a degree in sociology and went to work in marketing at PepsiCo in NYC. Two years later I still found myself thinking of my mom’s packages and the possibility of creating a way to share that special experience with other girls”.

Inspiring New Leaders

Knowing how important inspiration is, every OOLAA box offers an inspiring story. Items of companies run by women, profiles of women who are innovators in their field, to women taking risks, trying new ventures, and putting their mark on the world!

With a meeting, in Houston, Texas, between inventor (Tad Mayfield), and leading marketing consultant (Randall Montalbano), it was decided that a company should be formed, that filled the market need for a product that addressed the issue of oil, dirt and fingerprint smudges, and their removal from touch screen devices and lenses, such as eyeglasses, sport and sunglasses. Mr. Mayfield had created an expansive line of products that accomplished these goals.


The Patent Pending Gwee Button® is another of the most unique and innovative products ever invented for cleaning touchscreen products.

The Patent Pending Guppy Keyring’s main staple is that it always seems to be around when smudges appear on your lenses and screens. Also, unlike us, it never loses your keys. As a key ring, it’s meant to be mobile, The anti-microbial, microfiber cleaning pad is designed to safely eliminate smudges from touchscreen devices or any set of lenses that you accessorize with.

The Patent Pending Gwee Sport Guppy® keeps your Sport Glasses and Eye Glasses clean and smudge free. The Gwee Sport Guppy® also allows you to have on-the-go screen cleaning capabilities, and even your lenses can get some smudge-free love. Like all Gwee products, the Gwee Sport Guppy® is Always When and Where You Need It. ©

Ozeri Electric Wine Bottle Opener

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**


Ozeri electric wine bottle opener!

I really love this wine bottle opener. Everything that I needed was included in the box. Its design matches just about any modern kitchen decor. It is very light weight and easy to use. Removing the cork from each wine bottle is quite simple and only takes a few seconds. I usually would just use a knife to take the foil off of the bottle before attempting to remove the cork but now I have a much easier method with the foil cutter that was included. I love how it has a place in the back of the charger base to store the foil cutter which keeps it from getting lost or just thrown in a drawer somewhere.

What’s in the box:
  • Instruction manual and warranty
  • Electric wine opener
  • Charging Base and cord
  • Foil Cutter
  • Bonus Pourer and Stopper
If you like this wine opener it is available to purchase on Amazon.com for $25.95

beelieve Balm

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**

HEAVEN + URTH WAS CREATED AS A RESULT OF  LISTENING TO CLIENT REQUESTS, COMPLAINTS AND CONCERNS.  

As experienced estheticians and beauty experts at Orange County’s premier day spa, A Little Touch of Heaven in Newport Beach, Ca. (A.L.T.H.), Crystal Surmanian (owner) and Tanya Robertson (partner) immediately saw an alarming trend in almost all their clients’ skin; severely dehydrated and lackluster skin. Further analysis showed that a simple moisturizer simply wasn’t doing enough to rectify the problem. After Crystal and Tanya spent years researching and testing the best natural oils and ingredients -and realizing there was a lack of deep treatments in the industry that targeted a severe dehydration problem- Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm was born. Soon after the creative process began for Beelieve Deep Hydration Balm, Crystal and Tanya decided to explore and create more niche products that were simply missing, or not up to their standards, in the skincare industry. After extensive research and feedback as to how they can better skin products without all the chemicals, fillers and preservatives- the natural way- Heaven + URTH Skincare was born. With a vision to launch specialized products, grassroots style-small and steady and with a revolutionary purpose, Heaven + URTH Skincare is quickly being recognized for its outstanding commitment to customer’s satisfaction. Other Heaven + URTH specialized products are expected to be released Spring 2014.



The package is so cute the Balm came inside a burlap sack with a little wooden spoon inside. The packaging alone for products is what makes me what to try them out more. 

Beelieve Hydration Balm is a natural product that I can use all over my body. The balm is a little thick and that's why they give you a little spoon so you may scoop it right out of the jar. My feet are dry and cracked so they don't look so good. I been using this on my feet for almost a week or so and the balm made my feet a lot smoother and they feel softer.

I like the nice sweet scent that the balm has because a lot of things I have tried out that are made with natural ingredients dont always smell to nice.


Overall I am happy that this work out for me and help my dry skin. If you are looking or want to try something out that may help your dry skin you can go www.heavenandurth.com

Reviva Labs

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**



Reviva Labs, the pioneer of Elastin in America back in 1979,has replaced our professional-strength Elastin glass Ampules with high-potency, easier- to-use Serum in 1 oz. pump bottles.
Skin’s elastic fibres allow the skin to stretch and retract, helps give skin bounce, elasticity and firmness. (Pinch skin on cheeks, under eyes, or back of hands to test elasticity).

After 25, skin begins losing its supply of Elastin, aggravated by excess sun exposure, temperature extremes, stress, tobacco, alcohol, drying winds and more.



Reviva’s Elastin Serum Concentrate feeds skin special quality Elastin to boost skin elasticity and firmness. Can be used alone or under other creams and most effective to fight skin sag when alternated with Reviva’s DMAE Firming Fluid (Serum) concentrate.

Best results are seen on small face wrinkles (crow’s feet, corner of lips, withering of upper lips and under- eye bags). Good results on throat when combined with DMAE Serum. And Elastin Serum will also help elasticity on back of hands.

I will definitely continue to use this on my face as well as on the back of my hands. The hands show aging so much faster than we realize, and when I show off a pretty mani I need to make sure the skin of my hands is looking young and on-point as well.

You can purchase this product and many more from Reviva Labs website

Tokidopoli

**Disclaimer, I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own**


Here’s a hot product you might want to know more about. The amazing people at LeSportsac were kind enough to let me check out one of their bags recently, and the following is my review.
 
Having never owned a LeSportsac bag before, I had no idea what all the fuss was about. I knew about their collaborations with Stella McCartney, Gwen Stefani, and Tokidoki, but beyond that, I really didn’t understand the hype.


Pros
My thoughts about the brand changed when I received my bag (mine is the same style as the white patterned bag above, only in a black and gray floral pattern.) Here are some of my favorite things about the LeSportsac purse I tested out.

* Lightweight material. One of my favorite things about the bag I received was how lightweight the material was, which is great if you’re like me and love to carry lots of things in your purse. As someone who normally carries a leather or faux leather bag, the difference in weight between that and a LeSportsac purse was huge!

* Mostly waterproof. Second, the lightweight nylon material makes a LeSportsac bag much more waterproof than the average leather or suede bag. Nice if you’re caught in a rain storm without an umbrella and don’t want to ruin your purse and everything inside! This was a definite plus for me, and made me carry the bag more often than my other purses.

* So many styles to choose from. Another great thing about LeSportsac bags is that you have many options when it comes to colors and patterns! There are so many styles of bags, and about 10 different colors to choose from for each. You can customize any bag to look the way you want, so you’ll have a personalized look.


Overall, I liked the LeSportsac bag I reviewed, and would recommend the brand for any girl who wants a simple, stylish, well-made bag for everyday.

If you’d like to test out a LeSportsac handbag of your own, prices start around $50 at LeSportsac.com.
