#HolidayGiftGuide Holiday Gift Ideas for Guys Who are Hard to Shop For #leftHanded or #rightHanded adjustable knife

About the Product
I was sent a Zero Tolerance Hinderer knife. Perfect for us, since I do have little patience and Zero Tolerance. I kid, I kid. But I'm serious too. This has got to be the coolest pocket knife I have ever seen. I have my share of pocket knifes, one I keep on my purse, and one in a sheath in my car. Why? Because, hey- you never know.. This one is way nicer than any I have ever owned. I LOVE this knife!

Anyway this is a "defender" knife a HINDERER, and to me knives are just for that. Defense & hindering. I am, not a big gun person, honestly they scare me, so a knife is perfect for me to defend myself. In addition, it's for more than just defnding yourself. A hunter could use this, or it makes a perfect gift for the hard-to-shop-for man in your life. Husband, father, son.. etc.
It is perfect for a blue collar workman to use on the job.
It has many uses and I love how rigid and just honmestly the quality of it. This particular model I was sent retail for 260$ - though they start as low as 69.95. See more Zero Tolerance knives.

Zero Tolerance knives are built tough enough to meet the needs of military, law enforcement, and other first responders. They'll handle whatever you throw at them, in real-world situations you face every day.
No excuses -- Zero Tolerance.
ZT knives take their name from the maker's unwavering commitment to quality, design and usability. Employing super steels and cutting-edge manufacturing, along with a form-follows-function approach to aesthetics, truly sets ZT apart from the competition.
Whether your purpose is duty, EDC or a combination of both, Zero Tolerance won't let you down.
These knives are unique in that they have instructions to change the clip to make it useable for a righty or a lefty (left handed people rejoice!)

PMD - personal microderm - get the great skin you've always wanted!

"We all know that various cosmetic procedures can help retain a youthful appearance, but when you consider the cost and the complications of most procedures, the requirements often aren’t worth the reward."

PMD Personal Microderm wants to change all that by making a youthful appearance accessible to everyone. And best of all, you can get great results from the comfort of your own home.

The PMD Personal Microderm is a genuine microdermabrasion device and, as such, can cause skin irritation and scabs if not used properly. From watching the video we will learn, among other things- not to stop the movement of the device. Secondly,you will need to use different discs depending on your skin sensitivity. Lastly-  never go above my cheekbone or below the eyebrow when using the device, since the skin in that area is so incredibly sensitive.

Who it's for...
Ideal for those with fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, skin discolorations, and other imperfections who want smooth, even-toned skin.

I was so surprised by this tiny devices suction power.. which is why when my best friend Courteney used it, she had issues with it. I am grateful that she reviewed it first. Since her skin is naturally prettier than mine, the last thing I want is to be worse. This little wand is no magic stick, it will not transform you into a supermodel with flawless skin. Nothing will. It is a long process. Skin turnover and exfoliation of dead skin cells is important for someone with frequent blemishes. The dead skin can be pore clogging and have dirt and oils that will clog your pores ever more than they naturally, or hormonally want to do. A good sulfur clay mask + this device should help a LOT!. I can't tell you what products to use after this. I am sure that you are supposed to use their products.. however- I was not sent them. I used the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask (I swear by it) and to moisturize, I use Ponds Cold Cream (green lid)  I noticed some slight irritation on my cheeks after and I think I would have been better off starting on my chin or another less sensitive area for my first time.  I was incredibly impressed by the soft and smooth feel of my skin afterwards, plus a few of my acne marks were gone.

DK Publishing #liftTHEflap board books for children #holidayGIFTguide #childrensbooks

I was sent these durable, fun, toddler board books from DK Publishing a few weeks back, and they were so cute I wanted to tell you about them. If you see this "Lift the flap" book in stores this Christmas, you should get it. You lift each little flap and it growls, howls and roars at you. Rowan kept laughing at it. He is almost a year old and such a little cutie.

The 1st book is appropriately named Growl! Howl! Animals! can also be bought online now, using the links provided in this post. The arv is $14.99. Under each flap is a light sensor - this book is marked inappropriate for children under 2, so I do supervise young Rowan with it, but do not reccommend you use this book for a child his age,
I let him see it, and put it up on a shelf out of his reach until next year, when he is a bit older.

This charming jungle story is part of the collection of DK's noisy books for preschoolers.

Young children will love hearing animal sounds as they lift the flaps. Growl! Howl! Animals contains lively rhymes to help children discover life in the jungle. With 16 lift the flaps and 5 light-activated sounds, including a baby orangutan, a parrot, and a crocodile splish-splashing, Growl! Howl! Animals combines early learning with preschool play and is ideal for reading aloud with babies and toddlers.

Here are some pictures of the book, but pictures don't do it justice! So cute!

My Magic Mud #review @My_Magic_Mud #naturalproducts charcoal teeth whitening!

I usually use stock info and website pictures, because I'm not too confident in front of a camera. However, since I started using this product on my teeth I have had nothing but compliments! The pictures are worth a thousand words and really speak for themselves.
My Magic Mud retails for about 25 dollars a jar, but lasts 150 applications. If you went too heavy with usage maybe 100.
My only issue is the mess it makes but it doesn't stain my porcelain sink or counter. Surprisingly it doesn't have a flavor at all and doesn't feel gritty, honestly regular toothpaste is more coarse IMHO.
I always use peroxide and baking soda, even before starting My Magic Mud.
In addition I also use Uncle Harry's so I think the combination of these products had DRASTIC results on my teeth. Keep on mind I drink a pot of coffee a day and I am also a smoker.
Again I used all products mentioned in rotation twice a day for almost three months!!
Here are the pictures!  ORDER NOW.

Disclosure: I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. Your experiences and opinions with this or other products mentioned in this post may differ. Regardless all opinions are my own.
