The Girl He Used To Know-- Book Review

Hello Everyone!

I am back with another book review and this time it is a book that is different from my normal taste (I normally read Thrillers, Action, Young Adult, etc.). The book is called "The Girl He Used To Know" and it is written by Tracey Garvis Graves. I would like to thank SheSpeaks and the author for my Advanced Readers Edition and the opinion in this review is my own.



This book definitely beat my expectations and it blew me away due to it being so unique and different from other books. The books main character has Autism Disorder which makes normal things quite difficult for her but she manages to continue to live an adult life (with some challenges of course). She goes to college where she meets the love of her life, she plays chess with the chess club (and is better at it then most), she volunteers to help animals (definitely my type of person) and other things that shows that she can function. When we hear about Autism it is normally about how the person "can't function" so I was glad to see a book challenge that stigma! I felt like I knew the main character and her boyfriend/love interest quite well as the book describes them quite well (including some of their thoughts and their lives). This book is about rediscovering love for someone (a 2nd chance at a relationship). The relationship between the main character and her boyfriend is definitely goals as you can see how protective he is of her, how he tries to help her, how he sometimes pushes her out of her comfort zone and how they grow together (I am glad that she reclaimed this relationship as it is definitely healthy and great for her!). I do not want to give away too many details as I hate to spoil books so I will end this with YOU SHOULD READ THE BOOK!

Here is my post from Instagram (my product reviewing page):

This review is a little late and I apologize for that as I needed to wrap my head around what I thought about this book while recognizing that it is different from my normal reads. I get a ton of products to review but I have memory problems + anxiety/depression so just bear with me πŸ˜‚πŸ€·‍♀️🀦‍♀️πŸ‘€ I will start with the physical appearance of the book-- I like the cover as it is clean but simple but the white cover gets dirty really easy even if stored on a bookshelf. The beginning of the book peaked my interest then lost for a bit but I did finish the whole book (keep in mind that this is not my normal action/drama/mystery/killer books). I liked how detailed the characters were and felt like I knew them in real life. I love that this book breaks boundaries and that the main character has Autism disorder and that we can view things from her perspective and a "normal" persons perspective. I did like the love story and am glad that she found someone that made her happy and tried to understand her + make her comfortable and happy. It makes me happy to hear a story about a woman with Autism who is a fully functioning adult and tends to function better than others at some things (like chess). I don't want to give too much of the story away but I am definitely an animal lover like the main character and relate better to them then people (due to my severe anxiety and depression). I would give this book 4 stars as it was an honest, clean and refreshing read ⭐⭐⭐⭐ I honestly feel that every woman should read this book and understand that true love has second chances and to never settle for a jerk because a real man will love you with all of him and will work to make you happy! πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ’―πŸ’• Thanks @stmartinspress and @shespeaksup for the Early Release and I apologize for the late (but super honest) review.

Carefree Anti-Twist Liners Review & Freebie

Hello Everyone!

I'm back for another wonderful review and starting to catchup (finally!). This review is for the Carefree Anti-Twist Liners and thanks to Smiley360 for the free sample to review!

** The opinion featured here is my own and receiving free products does not influence that review as I have high standards of being truthful/honest. **

                      Sample I Received 

These liners were great as they were absorbent (I'm a heavy bleeder), soft like cotton, they did not irritate my skin and they did not twist/bunch up (which lets be honest--- that sucks when it happens!!!). I was able to walk around with my dogs, go shopping and live a "carefree" life while on my monthly period and it was wonderful not having to worry about leaks and embarrassment. I even wore these liners with my favorite expensive Victoria Secret glitter band panties (that should tell you how trustworthy they are).

             Favorite Victoria Secret Panties 

Thanks for checking out my review!!!

Mothers Day Gift-- Proflowers Review

Hey guys!



For Mothers Day I got my mother some flowers from www.proflowers.com and they were quite affordable for healthy yellow roses. My mother was quite suprised as they were in a box and delivered by FedEx so she had no way of knowing what was inside of the box. The yellow roses were beautiful and obviously well taken care of + they came with a super cute tin that had a magnet that said "you are my sunshine". I highy recommend Proflowers to anyone who is looking for affordable + high quality flowers.




I give Proflowers 5 stars and recommend that you check them out on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/proflowers/).

Thanks for reading!

Update: 5/10/19

Hey guys! 

I have taken a long break from blogging but am still doing product reviews on my Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/hunnelldaisy/). I have had some new things going on in my life plus some personal struggles that have distracted me from blogging. To update you on my life a little-- I am a Junior at Post University Online, I am still engaged to my man (have been together for 6 years), I am still caring for stray/abandoned/neglected animals (view my pet Instagram here where I post cute furbabies-- (https://www.instagram.com/daisy.pets/) and I still work from home making pretty good money. 

A week before my birthday (April 22nd) my aunt passed away unexpectly and that took a toll on me and my mental health (I already suffer from anxiety and depression). This week my rabbit that I have had for 5 years passed away from seizure/stroke and that was quite heartbreaking. Things have not been going too well in my personal life and I hope that everyone understands that my mental health and personal life has to come first. 

I have been exercising a lot which is helping with weight loss and my depression/anxiety. I have been drinking a lot of Alkaline Water by Clover Valley (normally I only drink soda which is very bad for your health) and I have been taking vitamins that are specifically designed to meet my needs. 



Other than that I have still being keeping up with some of my product reviews and I have a specific Instagram page for that now (https://www.instagram.com/daisys.product.reviews/). I will be trying to upload some product reviews on this blog when I feel better (mentally and physically). 

Thanks for reading!

UV Nail Polish Gel Pen Review!!


Hey guys!!

It has been a while since I have posted due to being busy with college, work, and other life events and for that I have to apologize. To read the most up to date reviews and about my life please follow (@hunnelldaisy and @daisys.product.reviews on Instagram).

Today's review is about a UV Nail Polish Gel Pen that I received in exchange for my honest opinion.  Honestly, I did not expect much from this pen as it appears to be from China and the outside appearance is not really "eye-catching". I was however blown away by the quality of this pen when I investigated it closer-- the flat brush is high quality and the bristles do not fall out + it applies nail polish evenly and makes it easier (especially for people like myself with horribly shaky hands), the color was the same as advertised, and the polish itself is long lasting and does not chip easily!! 😍
This nail polish pen was quite affordable and shipping took a reasonable time (since it comes from overseas). You will need a UV light as mentioned in the name of the product in order to fully set the polish (otherwise it remains moist and will not "cure"). I will post product pictures from my Instagram below:

Received this awesome product for review. ❗All opinions are my own and are not biased by the fact that I got this product for a small fee. ❗ This is a nail polish gel pen and the color is red. It glides on smoothly and allows me to paint my nails easier and faster than normal (I have shakey hands). You do have to use a UV Light with this in order to cure it. Overall the product is high-quality, the color is the same as advertised, and I would definitely use this again. This product gets 5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 πŸ’²Buy Here: https://brightsparrow.com/products/one-step-3-in-1-nail-gel-polish?fbclid=IwAR0BVfjk-hP-4cmsQRC3UY-76HOTt6ATF6MxFW2u7uU3PU5fDXO8beNDRog #nailsofinstagram #nailpolish #uvgelnails #gelnails #gelpolish #nailsπŸ’… #saviland #productreview #productreviewer #blogger @savilandworld @savilandfrance

White Vinegar Hair Hack!!!

Hey guys!

I typically do product reviews, but today I am switching it up to tell you about this AWESOME hair hack that I tried so that you can be on your way to healthier and happier hair! A little bit of a backstory on why I tried this hack is because I have not liked my hair for the past 3 months (it feels greasy/gross, it is flat with no volume, it is dry/itchy, it has product buildup from use of hair products/styling products, it lost its shine, and honestly my hair just looked dead πŸ˜³πŸ˜³πŸ˜²πŸ˜– So I did some research on the internet and it turns out that people are using vinegar (an already helpful product as you can mop your floors in it, clean the shower, clean the toilet, get rid of odor, clean the carpet, get stains out, etc.) to detox and balance the pH in their hair. I felt hopeless and had tried various other products so I though why not. 

So I got my stuff together for a hot shower that night (I am anemic and my showers will burn your skin off πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ˆ) and grabbed the Distilled White Vinegar from the kitchen. I got in the shower, wet my hair thouroughly (which actually takes some effort guys as my hair is about midway down my back and pretty thick), then I poured the vinegar all over my hair starting at the scalp (be careful not to get in eyes), after that was done I grabbed the shampoo and added a little vinegar to it, next I scrubbed my hair with the vinegar + shampoo mix (helps to reduce the smell of vinegar and helps get your hair cleaner), I waited for about 5 minutes and my scalp felt really clean and kind of tingly, and then I rinsed it thoroughly. From this point I finished up my shower routine (wash my body, shave, etc.) and then I stepped out of the shower, dried off, and got dressed in my PJs. The next step was to brush my hair (my hair normally has knots and tangles that are painful and I tend to have a lot of shedding when I brush my hair) and noticed that my hair was soft, manageable, and that I had less shedding + no product buildup (this was the results IMMEDIATLY after guys). The next day I got up that morning, brushed my hair after getting ready, and noticed that yet again I was experiencing cleaner + softer hair, no shedding, no product buildup, shinier/fuller hair, and I could brush my hair without wanting to cry due to all the knots/tangles. 

Now I want to share with you guys my Instagram pics (@hunnelldaisy if you want to follow me) which documents the night I used the vinegar wash and the next day (AKA day 1 of the experiment).

Pour vinegar from top of scalp and all over (be careful not to get in eyes) 3.) Shampoo to kill some of the vinegar smell and to work the vinegar into your scalp and hair 4.) Let sit about 5 minutes 5.)

Perfectly Posh Review





Hey guys!

With all the reviews that I have to do it can be quite easy to fall behind. Because of this my review for Perfectly Posh is quite late and I want to apologize for this--- because you guys definitely deserve to know this AWESOME brand. 
I received some free samples from an awesome Perfectly Posh Consultant named Denise and I have to say that I love these products. You can visit Denise's site to see all her awesome products here: https://www.perfectlyposh.com/consultant-find/ 
The link above will take you to the page to find a consultant and then type in "Denise Revira" and then hit select consultant.
These products are perfect for sensitive skin, they are all-natural, and they smell oh so good!


Below I will post some pictures of the products I have tested so far:


One Bundle that I received to review with tons of products including Vial Liquid Lipstick Sample, Crackle Spackle Face Mask Sample, The Stripper Sample, and more! The package that she sent it in was so cute and it had mermaids on it. You can also see the "You Apricaught Me!" Body Polish (shown in my hand during a shower) and you can read the Body Polish review below. 





Cackle Spackle Face Mask Sample --
I absolutely love face masks and this is definitely one of my favorite ones that I have tried. It was easy to apply and easy to take off. My skin felt so clean and clear of any blemishes after use. This is a deep cleaning face mask with Charcoal and Kaolin Clay which is designed to absorb pore clogging dirt and oil. I also loved that this make detoxified and that it had a Spearmint scent. It's $20 for a full-sized product which is 2 oz.
You can see a photo of the full-size product below and this is actually a screenshot from her site.














More of the products that I received as samples. Including Cackle Spackle (review above), Gel Yes Moisturizer (which smells amazing and is very moisturizing), Toes Before Bros Foot Mask (which was a very relaxing experience), and Good Hydrations Lavender In Shower Lotion (I love the smell of lavender as it so relaxing and it definitely hydrated my skin and it has a Coconut and Shea Butter base). 





Bring on the Bubbly Lip Oil--
This smells really good and it tastes great as well. This Lip Oil was very moisturizing and I felt like it gave my lips so much needed plumping. 


Sleepy Sleep Skin Stick--A mix of calming shea butter stick with lavender essential oil. This of course smells like lavender since it has the essential oil in it and it is so useful! This helps me to unwind and relax and calms sensitive skin. I put this on my pressure points (wrist, side of neck, etc.) before I go to sleep, but you can also use this on your baby as well  as it is all-natural.





"You Apricaught Me!" Body Polish-- 
Gentle exfoliating body polish that has Apricot and Vanilla in it. This smells really good and is for dry/dull/uneven skin. You can also use this before shaving for a close and smooth shave.


Big Fat Yummy Hand CrΓ¨me in Social Butterfly-- 
This moisturizes without feeling greasy and is for dry hands & cuticles. It has Apricot Kernel Oil in it and is fast absorbing. It features juicy blackberry, jasmine, and has a lingering scent. 


The Healer Skin Stick-- A moisturizing shea butter &  beeswax stick with vanilla and orange essential oils. This product smells great and is quite versatile (perfect for dry skin and for dry/chapped lips) and it protects skin as well. I also used this on my cuticles and was quite surprised at how efficient it was. 


Big Fat Yummy Hand CrΓ¨me in Sassyooma-- 
This honestly smells like orange "Creamsicle" icecream to me and it has sweet orchard citrus in it. Just like the other hand crΓ¨me it is moisturizing without the greasy feeling. It is also fast acting and versatile and is the perfect hand crΓ¨me. 



Vial Liquid Lipstick in shade "Stop Blushing"--
This was the perfect shade for me and I feel like it would perfect for a lot of skin tones. This liquid lipstick is not drying and it is long lasting. This is honestly one of my favorite Perfectly Posh products and I wear this more often than not. The casing of the liquid lipstick itself is perfect and it looks classy/upscale/high-quality. 

Thanks for reading this blog post. I hope that you now know that Perfectly Posh is a great company with high-quality products that are worth the price and I also hope that you will check out Denise Rivera's products on her page as she is an awesome person/consultant. 

Until the next review-- hope you guys are having happy holidays and wish you the best!
