Tom's of Maine Baby Shampoo and Wash, Lightly Scented, 10 Ounce
Tom's of Maine Baby Shampoo and Wash, Lightly Scented, 10 Ounce

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice easy wash, strong scent, October 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really like the soft feeling this left on my hair, and it's great for travel as it can be both a shampoo and a wash. I tried a combo before from pureology and while I liked it as a wash I didn't like the dry hair it left me. The Tom's of Maine is very gentle on hair and body.

I found the scent to be strong but not unpleasant. It's floral. Although this is marketed as a baby shampoo I feel that anyone who wants a gentle shampoo, body wash, or two in one would like this. It lathered nicely and rinsed well, leaving no dry, tight, or soapy feeling on the skin or in my hair.

2.0 out of 5 stars play dough scented, October 18, 2014
Being a big fan of the Puracy brand, the all natural high quality products like the hand soap, I was excited to try the Milk and Honey body lotion. Like all Puracy products it's all natural with high end ingredients, and probably does a great job moisturizing. My problem is I simply cannot get past the smell. It smells exactly like play dough used to when I was I a kid.

Thinking maybe it was me I stuck the bottle under Jim's nose, my son's noses, the neighbor (sorry J) etc, and every single one said it smelled exactly like play dough. It feels soft and lush but I can't use it because of the odor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could knit another dog with the hair this brush got off Izzy, October 16, 2014
Izzy is a mini schnauzer, and they don't shed. However, that doesn't mean they don't get dead hair, it just doesn't fall off, so they either need to be hand stripped or use a shedding brush to get the dead hair off. The deshedding brush is so nice, Izzy is older and her skin is thinner but she enjoyed my softly running the shedding brush down her body, and I got a lot of hair, even though I had used her other one a month before, a much higher priced one.

The handle is comfortable, and although the brush looked huge it did a great job on a smaller dog (15 lbs)

The Agility Advantage: How to Identify and Act on Opportunities in a Fast-Changing World
The Agility Advantage: How to Identify and Act on Opportunities in a Fast-Changing World
by Amanda Setili
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $21.78
52 used & new from $16.35

5.0 out of 5 stars Readability and staying on point, October 16, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Amanda Setili has written a fascinating book, full of well documented cases using familiar companies, interesting writing, and a real grasp of business success based on agility, and those who have done so well. My favorite example had to be Haier, Haier was a badly run company putting out below par products, the new (in 1985) CEO took it from a lousy performer to an industry leader by listening to what customers wanted, and being willing to adapt, from different door handles for Office depot, target, and home depot. They learned that in the provinces women were using the washing machine for both clothes and potatoes, yes, you read that right, so they made a machine that would be designed for clothes and potatoes.

Setili keeps the reader engaged, keeps the points on track, so the book is very readable but also teaches important business lessons. From listening to the customer, to keeping up with the times and trends without falling for short lived trends, this book really drives home the need to be able to get out of corporate complacency and learn to be lean and mobile when it comes to making decisions and producing products.


Obsidian Curse (A Stacy Justice Mystery Book 5)
Obsidian Curse (A Stacy Justice Mystery Book 5)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great time with Stacy Justice, October 16, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having read the entire series I would say it pays to start at book one. Here is what I really like about Stacy and these books, she evolves, grows, changes. I have read some series where the protagonist is exactly the same book to book, never learning, never changing, never adjusting. When the series started Stacy wanted nothing to do with her witchy side, then she gradually accepted it, begrudgingly, and now she's embraced it, at personal loss, like her love life, and gains, like her relationship with her relatives.

As with most of the series there are several plot lines that eventually converge, a crazy powerful sex demon has escaped into our world, a mysterious author with a dark past and a skull everyone seems to want, (not his, an obsidian skull), a stalker fairy with easily hurt feelings, and Stacy trying to work on staying alive and staying in her relationships.

Because of all that is going on the book could easily become bloated or confusing, but it doesn't, Annino deftly weaves the story lines and eventually they come together in a satisfying conclusion. Stacy is a fun character, and the other supporting characters are well fleshed out and interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fantastic!, October 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have another vacuum system that I liked a lot, until I got this one. The wine saver is incredibly easy to use, with the cork-like shape fitting easily into wine bottles. Put the cork in, the vacuum on top, pump a few times and the wine is sealed! To release the cork just press on the top, release the vacuum, and pull out, reuse again and again.

I cook with wine, drink some but not a lot at one time, so storage is important, this is the easiest and best system I've found for resealing wine. Very very good product

4.0 out of 5 stars Jimbl makeup gift set, October 15, 2014
The large clear case makeup kit has a lot of variety. First, I'd pitch the brush and buy a nice set, most of the brushes that come with makeup aren't very good and this one does shed.

The colors are nice, and there is a huge variety, buy this for a sleep over for girls and watch them have a blast! This would be good for a drama club, or for traveling also. The blush, powder, and eye makeups are my favorites, they go on smoothly and last. This is a lot of fun and would make a great gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars All in one makeup kit, October 15, 2014
There is a lot of makeup in here, and most of it is great. As mentioned, the lipstick is dry, so I put a lip conditioner on first and a bit of gloss over the top. The blush, eye makeup, powder is where this kit shines. It's excellent. The case is so convenient, it would be great for traveling, for a team (drama, cheerleaders, school play etc) because the price is very reasonable and there is so much variety. It would also be a fun dress up gift for a little girl, or those of us with inner little girls who still like to play dressup

I would go ahead and buy a set of brushes.

Sterling Silver Crystal Dove Pendant Necklace with Swarovski Elements
Sterling Silver Crystal Dove Pendant Necklace with Swarovski Elements

Price: $29.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Dove pendant, October 15, 2014
I absolutely love this dove pendant. Small, silver, with an olive branch, the dove is covered in little clear crystals. This would be a perfect gift or buy it for yourself, it would be great for your sunday school teacher, gift exchange, and yet it is secular enough not to be limited to just religious gifts, being a bird. The chain is very delicate and the clasp worries me, but it could be easily traded out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angel pendant is a winged winner, October 15, 2014
Precious angel that would be perfect for confirmation (as already mentioned), Christmas, or someone who collects angels. the Pendant is light and delicate. The small clear crystals are on the skirt, the top is plain silver. This is just so delicate and attractive. The chain is thin, but good for such a delicate angel. The angel is holding a little heart. While delicate this is well put together with no weld marks or weak spots, a good bargain.
