Lugz Ease Military Canvas Shoes Review



I have two sets of shoes to share with you tonight and they are both in a Back to School Giveaway Event but will be different styles of Men's Shoes. The ones above are called Ease Military Canvas.

The Ease Military Shoe is a soft, lightweight sneaker with hand sewn moccasin construction. Mike said they were very comfortable and would wear these over his tennis shoes because for some odd reason they are hurting his feet but only when he wears the sneakers and we have bought all kinds of pairs and none of them has done the trick! But, so far, so good on these shoes.


They come in 3 colors:

Black on Black, Blace & White and Charcoal White.

Main Features:
  • Canvas upper
  • Moc toe design
  • Waxy Twill upper
  • Padded, triple row puff collar
  • Durable rubber outsole
  • Cushioned insole
The awesome folks at Lugz will give the winner of my Sweeping For Summer the same set that I just reviewed for the Sweeping Summer Giveaway Hop and it starts on August 1s and ends on the 15th. Open in the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!


The shoe above is called the Zosho Slip Sneakers. This is a lightweight sneaker that you can slip on and again, this is for Men. It features a breathable upper and a light, cushioned sole to keep your feet comfortable all day.
 
 
Look at how thick the bottoms of this shoe is! Mike won't have any trouble walking in these! He said they were very soft and very comfortable to wear. These will be his at home shoes and he will stash his regular sneakers for now.
 
Features for the Zosho Slip Sneakers:
  • Textile upper
  • Lightweight CME/TPR sole
  • Soft latex sockliner
 
 
The Zosho Slip Sneakers come in 7 colors so you should have plenty of colors to choose from! Mike said he will use these shoes as his grab and go shoe when our Yorkie, Charlie has to go outside and he doesn't feel like putting on shoes that he has to tie up.
 
 
I love how thick the bottom is and know that it will help Mike and anyone else who has problems with arches or just plain walking causes I am glad that they decided to really pad the bottoms.
 
Here is a quick snippet of Lugz's History:
Always an innovator and leader in footwear, Lugz first made a name for itself in October of 1993, bringing its first line of boots to market, with the initial product consisting of two styles of boots, a quilted vest and a pair of jeans. 
Soon Lugz was endorsed by key players from the world of hip hop and has continued to do so through out the years. One such collaboration led Lugz to breathe life to a whole new category of footwear with the introduction of the first ever celebrity-endorsed "Funk Master Flex" urban driving shoe. This was only the beginning as support then lead to a collaborative line with hip-hop superstar Bryan "Baby" Williams, aka "Birdman" with his own series of sneakers and boots. 
In 2006 Orange County Choppers, the world's premier builders of custom motorcycles signed on to endorse Lugz shoes, which they were already wearing so it was a natural fit. With its aggressive "built for the streets” reputation Lugz collaborated with Paul Teutul, Jr. to create a signature Lugz shoe "the Torx" which interpreted this incredibly well.

Enjoy Luxury Haircare & Nourishing & Moisturing Oil Review


 

I have another round of awesome Enjoy Hair Care products to tell you about today that I haven't tried before and then the Nourishing & Moisturing Oil is a brand new product that I will tell you about also.

Here is what I reviewed:

1.) Enjoy Luxury Shampoo
2.) Enjoy Luxury Conditioner
3.) Enjoy Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil

All three of these products worked like a charm. I have dry thin hair and need to be gentle with my hair and that is exactly what they did. Let's start with the Luxury Shampoo.

 

Main Features of Luxury Shampoo:
  • Enjoy Sulfate-Free Luxury Shampoo is formulated to relieve stressed out scalp and hair
  • This incredibly luxurious shampoo will soothe, moisturize and cleanse your hair gently
  • Enjoy Haircare is a unique line of hair products that was developed for your simple everyday needs. Containing no sulfate in the shampoos, giving you hair strength without harming or stripping your color treated hair
  • Amazing new technology to create a highly versatile hair care system for all hair types, textures, styles an chemical care needs. Simple as 1-2-3 to cleanse, repair, moisturize and equalize you hair for that every day salon look
You are going to love how soft and manageable your hair is going to be once you use any of the Enjoy products but this one will be the ultimate luxury your hair has been waiting for. It also  relieves stressed out hair and scalp. If your hair is damaged by hair coloring or over heating with blowers and curling along with flat irons, then you will love the results you get with using this shampoo.


The Luxury Conditioner is the one you want to use with the Luxury Shampoo. I love that they make sure to pair each set with the right compliment of Shampoo & Conditioner to give you an awesome hair day! For best results, comb product through the hair before rinsing. This product may be used for shaving and moisturizing the skin.
 
Now, how about that! I would have never thought to use my hair conditioner as a shaving cream or to moisturize my skin! Mmm, I may have to give this a try. I try not to read about a product until I sit down to do the review so this was news to me or I would have attempted it before the review so I could tell you how it did. If you try it yourself, let me know because I am curious now.
 
Main Features of Luxury Conditioner:
  • Treat yourself to the ultimate luxury conditioner
  • Relieve stressed out hair and scalp
  • Discover what pampering your hair is all about
 
 
Now, for the new product called Nourishing & Moisturing Oil. This awesome little bottle of hair oils will leave your hair feeling so darn smooth and luxuriously happy.
 
Here is what I do when I use it on my hair:  I will spray directly into hands, then rub into hands, then work onto ends of hair for enhanced shine. I always do this after I wash and rinse. Or I may wait and put on my hair after it is dry to help tame down the frizzes. Or I should say that I put on before blow drying and then again after if I need a little touch up in spots that I missed. It has been a life-saver for me.
 
When you combine all three products together like I have done, you should have some seriously awesome hair! Enjoy has a wide range of products and I am sure you will find the one that is best for you among them. Go check them out and see what they have in store for you!

Bamboo 3 Piece Accessory Kit


 
I have a great product to share with you today from ToiletTree Products called the Bamboo 3 Piece Accessory Kit for your bathroom. This is my first time doing a review with any Bamboo product so I was excited to see this one.
 
If you have a college bound teen, this would make the perfect gift for them to take with them. This will hopefully save some space in their dorm room or even apartment if they are sharing it. Of course, if you want to keep it for yourself, that is also a grand idea.
 
Here are the main features of the Accessory Kit:
 
  • 3 Piece Bathroom Accessory Set – Lotion Dispenser, Tooth Brush Holder and Soap Dish
  • Made from 100% natural eco-friendly bamboo.
  • Modern, unique and functional style.
  • Perfect for any bathroom or kitchen counter top.
  • Measures 7.5in H x 6in L x 7.25in W.
  • No assembly required

  •  

     
    I love hand soap or hand lotion in these pump containers unless I buy a decorative hand soap or lotion already in a great container but most of the time when we all tend to buy what is on sale or just plain cheaper, it ultimately comes in a plain container and that is when I transfer over to my decorative containers. Just be sure to wash them out in between, especially if you rotate between soap and lotion.


    I love the toothbrush holder also for different reasons. It can be used to hold your toothbrushes or use them like I do and that is to hold used toothbrushes to help clean the small places that you can't get to, like in the rim of the oven or in corners of windows and other hard surfaces to get at. You could take the metal plate away and use this as a straw holder and many other things. In the bathroom it can also be used to keep your Q-tips or even your makeup brushes.  It will dress up your kitchen or bathroom in whatever capacity you choose.


    This is the bottom part that holds the other two pieces in place. You could use this to hold your hand soap (bar) or you can use it in your bedroom on a dresser to hold your watch, rings, every day wear jewelry for easy to spot items. I am sure you can come up with a lot of idea's yourself that I haven't thought of yet.
     
    Together the three pieces fit beautifully and ToiletTree Products has other Bamboo products to add to your collection. I haven't tried any of those so I can't tell you exactly how they work or how they function. But if you are into the Bamboo design phase, they have some great stuff for your bathroom.

    Here is a snippet of how ToiletTree came to be:
    ToiletTree Products began with a simple holiday gift from Mom. After receiving a fogless mirror as a Christmas present in 2008, Steven, who had always loved the concept of shaving in the shower, made it his mission to redesign the mirror that failed to stand up to its claims of being fog-free and unshakable wall adherence.  
    Fed up with frustration and uneven shaves, Steven joined forces with his father and brother to design a mirror that not only stayed attached to the wall, but, most importantly, guaranteed a fogless face for life!

    Eau Fling Perfume by Harvey Prince Review


     
    I have another great scent from Harvey Prince to share with you called Eau Fling and this bottle is their largest one that is 3.4 oz. or 100 ml, whichever you are more familiar with. I have been a really happy camper this summer because I got to try some new scents that I had never had the pleasure of smelling and I know that there are still some I haven't tried but I think I got some of the most beautiful scents this summer to share with you.
     
    Eau Fling is describes as:
     
    Notes: Lavender, Blackcurrant, Plum, Raspberry, Apple, Jasmine, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Musk, Rare Woods
    Style: Stimulating. Sensual. Spicy.
     
    All I know is that it really is awesome and with it being from the Harvey Prince collection, you know it has to be good!
     

    Wow, now here is something that should wake up your romantic life and here all this time I thought Ageless was the one but after smelling Eau Fling and then reading about it, I believe this one just might be the "One" to beat. Researchers have come up with some interesting facts and myths about the scents in Eau Fling.
     
    The sensual and spicy scent of Eau Fling combines jasmine, lavender and pumpkin pie notes, which have been shown to attract and excite men. The press is calling Harvey Prince’s Eau Fling the modern day "love potion.”  Mmm, now isn't that interesting! You really do need to get a bottle, even if it's the Tall Spray for $26.00, it will last you quite awhile. That is one thing about these fragrances, it doesn't take much so spray sparingly.
     
    Here is how Eau Fling came to be:
    Eau Fling is inspired by a study conducted at The Smell and Taste Treatment & Research Foundation in Chicago, led by two physicians with over 50 years of medical experience between them. The study tested the effects of 30 different single scents and combined ingredient scents on male sexual arousal. Lavender, jasmine and pumpkin pie proved to evoke the most passionate response.
    You can get Eau Fling in several sizes:

    You can get the 8.8ml which is the Mini for $21.00 or you can get the Tall Spray that is also 8.8ml and costs $26.00. Then there is the 50ml or 1.7oz that costs $55 and then lastly the one I am sharing with you that is 3.4oz or 100ml that costs $98! So, if you need something small to go in your purse, you can get either the Tall Spray or the Mini and it will fit nicely inside. The two that are bigger I would leave at home sitting on my dresser or in my bathroom. Below is the Tall Spray.


    Harvey Prince perfumes have been seen in a lot of places and that made me realize how many people actually know about them and are buying their fragrances. They have been featured in such places as The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Prevention and The Economist to NBC’s Today Show, CBS's Early Show, and the New York Daily News.

    There are quite a few scents that they have and I have gotten a good bit of them but there is still a lot I haven't had the pleasure of reviewing and the one that sounds the most interesting to me is Coupling and then they have the new Submariner which is for Men, yes, you read this right! They now have a fragrance for Men!
     
     
    This is how they describe the Submariner: Submariner’s aquatic notes of Bermudian island spice and vibrant South Pacific Tonka Bean inspire vigor and vitality. This one comes in 3 sizes to meet whatever your partner's needs are.

    Original Sprout Sponsor Spotlight Review


     
    I bet most of you have heard of Original Sprout Tahitian and the Island Bliss products that are perfect for summer and smell really beachy and summery! They have some of the best natural, organic products that I have tried not only because they are good for Moms, but because they are good for our children as well.  The children's line is the Worry Free products but today we will be talking about the Island Bliss products and one Tahitian product.

    Here are the three products I got to review:

    1.)  Island Bliss Shampoo
    2.)  Island Bliss Conditioner
    3.)  Tahitian Sunscreen

     

    I really love this awesome shampoo for the summer because it lathers up really well and doesn't take much to get your hair squeaky clean. Plus, you will smell like you are on the beach and that is never a bad thing! Oh, did you know that organic Rosemary is a natural and organic way to get rid of lice and insects? This would be a great shampoo to use on your children even during school so that you can help ensure they are getting some protection.

    Your hair will be silkier, smoother, thicker and just feel plain out wonderful! Unlike other sulfate free shampoos that can weigh hair down, Original Sprout's formula delivers touchable, smooth volume that lasts all day. Keeps color fresh without sulfates and makes hair stronger with vegan protein.

    The awesome benefits of Island Bliss Shampoo:

    You will really enjoy the new, ultra rich conditioner that instantly transforms the most dry, damaged hair into silky, soft healthy locks.

It has tropical Mongongo Oil known for it's healing, regenerative powers and vegan jojoba protein to rebuild and strengthen. Hair color will stay fresh with their color keeping pH of 4.5-5.5. You will really flip over this new conditioner that smells naturally delicious inspired by tropical breezes of an island escape.

    Have fun by taking a tropical vacation in your shower with your new Tahitian conditioner for the hair! A must have for all hair types. I just wish at the time that I got sent this conditioner, that they would have had the shampoo in stock also, but they it was not available at the time I got this conditioner.

    This is what this wonderful conditioner can do:

    •Family Friendly
    •Gentle pH of 4.5-5.5

On top of that, this Sunscreen has been Winner of Babbles Best Sunscreen Award! Everyone loves the non-greasy natural sunscreen!

    Naturally vegan & worry-free, the SPF can be used on the whole family. I love how it helps keep make-up in place & the savings. Excellent for sensitive, dry or acne prone skin. No titanium dioxide or nano particles. Helps preserve moisture without being greasy. Enjoy the real performance & savings with Sprout!

    I guess by now you understand why I loved them so much! I can't wait for you to try them and see what you think. They have alot more products than what I got to review and I hope to someday use more of them so I can tell you all about them. If you have children with skin or hair problems, I would definitely recommend these products and I bet you will see a difference almost immediately.

    There was way too much information for me to copy here but if you go to the Health Studies tab and read what is in there and why Original Sprout won't use those chemicals and additives in their products, you will understand why. I was really shocked to read some of the reports on that page!

    This is a snippet from the tab Founder on how Original Sprout started:
    Inga Tritt founded The Original Little Sprout® in 2003 and Original Sprout in 2007. The name Little Sprout was inspired by the birth of her daughter Maya. Inga was born in Germany and grew up in Montecito, California. Her love of nature, art and architecture led to a successful career as a master stylist. Wanting to be a full time mom led her to selling her salons & spas and moving to the country, where she now lives with her family.

    InfraShine Ceramic 2" Large Styling Iron Review


     
     
    I have an awesome new styling iron to share with you and it's InfraShine's ClassicLine MST Large 2" Micro-Silica Infused Ceramic Styling Iron! Wow, that was a mouthful.

    Here are the main features of this awesome iron:

    * 2-inch size for thick, coarse or extra-long hair
    * Streamlined ergo-design
    * Multi-mesh ceramic elements
    * Even heat & instant recovery
    * Durable Kevlar /Mylar casing
    * Rated for 5000 hours of use
    * One-year manufacturer’s warranty
    * 120 volts, 35-75 watts & 60 Hz
    * Alerts when Heated using Pulsating Switch Light
    * Exclusive FAR-Infrared Anionic Technology closes the cuticle layer and locks in moisture
    * Floating, beveled, Micro-Silica infused ceramic plates insure an ultra-smooth glide through all hair types
    * Can be used for chemical treatments or on damp hair (I wouldn't try at home - chemical treatments)

     
    What I liked best about this particular iron is that it offers extra-wide paddles and a safe-touch tip for increased leverage and control when smoothing thick or extra long hair. It actually took less time to get my hair done because it was so wide and for me that is a huge plus!
     
    When you have RA and Fibromyalgia, having to hold onto something for a long time tends to wear me down and I get to hurting so the faster I can get done, the better. This Styling Iron made it possible to cut in half the time I spend straightening my hair. And if you have shorter hair than I do, then you will reap even better benefits.

     
    I am never good at taking my own pictures of myself when my hair is done so I grabbed this one off of their site to show you how straight and beautiful your hair can be. Now, granted, my hair is no where near this long. Mine is maybe one or two inches below my shoulder.
     
    They have variable heat settings from 170-400˚ F for use with delicate to coarse hair and have a convenient ready light that pulsates when the desired temperature is reached. Energy efficient and eco-conscious, these styling tools operate on 120 volts and are backed by a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.

    The large UL approved 2-inch paddle is lightweight and handles thick hair and long locks easily.   InfraShine styling tools all use the original patented infrared ray radiant heat. Patented ceramic multi-layered heating elements lock in negative ions that transform into micro molecules that infuse moisture and shine into the hair. This styling tool let's you straighten, press, flip, or curl hair quicker, with more shine and less damage.

    I think anyone who has very long hair like the model above, will fall in love with this awesome flat iron. Mine isn't that long and I sure do love it! I hope you stop by and find out some more information on all of their products, not just this one to see if they have something more suitable for you!

    You can find more information about this product or any other product that InfraShine carries by checking out their Facebook  and by following them on Twitter!

    The awesome folks at InfraShine will be giving the winner of my Find Your Paradise Blog Hop Giveaway the same exact Styling Iron that I just reviewed! You are going to love it, I promise! The Giveaway Hop starts on August 1st and ends on the 15th. Open in the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!

    Disclosure: I did receive free product and/or compensation for this review but the opinions expressed are my own. My thoughts and opinions may differ from yours. Product for giveaway will be supplied by the manufacturer or their PR firm.

    Too Fruit Douce Mousse Review



      
    I have a really awesome new product to tell you about that even I did not know about until recently. It's a whole line of skincare products for kids called Too Fruit! But, the great thing I like about this one particular product, Douce Mousse is that even I can use it and so can you! It's a foaming face wash that is absolutely heaven! And the best part is, you don't need water! Yes, you read right, you can wash your face without water.
     
    The best part is that it smells like Coconut and Pineapple! Yum, that sounds so good! Wait until you try it. I wish I could have tried the whole group because if they are as good as this foamy face wash, then they are going to be totally awesome! You definitely will want to try this for your children.

    The wash will leave your skin and theirs nice and soft, so don't worry about it being harsh and making the skin feel tight, it won't. I loved the feel of my soft and smooth face after I used the Douce Mousse. It really is gentle.
     
     
    The Douce Mousse has Coconut surfactants and pineapple enzymes that purify and exfoliate while radish root and bilberry extracts hydrate, soothe and condition your skin to reduce irritation and improve overall cell function. Love that they used some really natural ingredients in their product! I also found out that the leader in certifying these things had these findings.
     
    Natural and Organice cosmetic certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to ECOCERT standard available at http://cosmetics.ecocert.com

    **99.2% of the total ingredients are natural.
    **19.8% of the total ingredients are from organic farming.
     
     
    The Douce Mousse is for all skin types and it does say on the bottle that it can be used by pre-teens also if they are having issues with their skin. This stuff is so gentle, it's truly amazing.  The foamy wash removes impurities from the upper layers of the epidermis without causing dryness or irritation for a fresh and clean complexion.
     
    See, I told you it was really gentle. I even used it myself and would definitely recommend it for a teen who has problems with their skin as far as cleaning goes. You can use this foaming wash twice a day, morning and night. I would recommend still using a moisturizer even thought it won't dry out their skin, it still doesn't hurt to use one that is appropriate for their skin type.
     

    TooFruit, imported from France, provides safe, simple, and fresh alternative for parents looking to replace harsh cleansers in their kid’s daily grooming routines.

    o   Children do not produce effective amounts of sebum to protect them from damaging environmental effects.

    o   TooFruit patent-pending Filmo-Protect Complex derived from fruits, mimics sebum, effectively protecting kid’s skin from the environment and moisturizing at the same time. The complex has three fruits: Olive, Coconut and Raspberry. The combination has been scientifically proven to form protective film over a child’s skin, and to hydrate as well.
     
    They also have other products for your children's skincare needs:

     
    They have two different types of moisturizer, another type of cleanser and the lip balm. Since I didn't review them I can't tell you too much about them but wanted to let you know that they do have 2 moisturizers in case you wanted to get the foamy wash and one of them as a package. The lip balm would probably be a good bet also.

    I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    Folli-Cleanse Shampoo Review



     
    I have a new shampoo to share with you called Folli-Cleanse and it can be used for a variety of reasons. It is mainly used for dandruff control but I don't have dandruff but do have an itchy scalp from time to time and I think it's tied somehow to my Hypothyroidism. So, every now and then if my skin gets really dry, my head will itch a lot!
     
    So, I decided to try this shampoo because it is suppose to be gentle, a lot more than the other dandruff shampoo's that have that heavy tar stuff in it. Lord, I sure am glad I really don't have dandruff because some of those shampoo's are scary! But, this one turned out to be just as advertised, gentle and very easy to use.
     
    Here are some of the reason's why I recommend this shampoo:
     
    **No bad smells Natural based and very gentle.
    **Very deep cleansing- cleanses the root of the hair.
    **Leaves hair very full and healthy.
    **Removes even stubborn build up.
    **Returns healthy normalcy to your scalp.
    **Removes years of product build up.
    **Can be used every day
    **Eliminates impurities that cause dandruff, flakes, inflammation that causes itch and more
    **Dandruff is removed and the impurities cleansed for healthy hair growth and healthy scalp

    The best shampoo for oily hair, anti-dandruff, clarifying and for regulating sebaceous gland secretions.  Rich in Zinc PCA and botanical extracts to heal and repair inflammation and irritation and reduce oil production! It pays to have healthy hair because in turn it helps you to have a healthy scalp. Over 90% of all women that complain of hair problems have serious product, sweat or oil build up on the root of the hair and the scalp.

    This shampoo has a very nice smell and won't make your eyes burn or irritate them. I have tried some shampoo's in the past that if I got some of the suds in my eyes while rinsing it out, well, it was not pretty. It really would burn and not just my eyes, the outside of the eye also burned around the crow's feet. So, I am very careful about ingredients now.

    That is why I checked out the ingredient's in this shampoo and here is what I found out about the ingredient's and what they do:
    **Folli-Cleanse lets natural based herbs and oils do the deep cleansing of the scalp and hair follicle.
    **Folli-Cleanse was designed to deep cleanse the hair root and scalp of impurities without irritating even the most sensitive scalp. 
    **Thyme, sage, ivy burdock are all natural cleansers- sure they cost more but they do not damage!  
    **Zinc Pca is used to regulate the sebum in the scalp so that an oily scalp does not come about.  
    **Fenugreek is a natural scalp stimulant that brings crucial blood flow to the root of the hair so that the hair and scalp skin grow healthy. Removing excess debris, pollutants, product build up and more let the scalp be healthy as it should. Dandruff flakes are gently removed and allows healthy skin - flake free- to grow on the scalp.  
    **Panthenol is added to keep hair full and thick!
    I don't know about you, but I am tired of getting shampoo's that have so many harsh chemicals in them that they either cause my eyes to burn or they damage my scalp or hair because they are too strong. This shampoo was a whole lot gentler and it had a nice clean fragrance that did not irritate my eyes or my nose.

    Oh, and this shampoo is gentle enough to use on your children. It has been certified Organic by the State of California. If you don't like it, they have a 30 day Money Back Guarantee.

    I also found out that Folli-Cleanse also removes sebum plugs, as well as dirt and cholesterol which can cause a hardened plug that clogs the follicle opening. Evidently, this is a very common problem for both men and women. It might be one of the reasons that you are losing hair, if your hair has sebum plugs, it can cause the hair to stop growing. I have thinning hair so this was fascinating to me.

    I had a hairdresser one time tell me I wasn't massaging my scalp enough when I shampooed and that might be why the blood circulation wasn't helping produce hair follicles. I wonder now if it wasn't these sebum plugs instead. Well, I will continue to use the shampoo and give you an update later on when I notice whether or not my hair gets better or if the thinning continues.

    Neck-Wear.net Tie & BowTie Review & Giveaway**Closed**



     
     
     
    I have an awesome store to share with you if your husband, boyfriend, son or anyone in your family has to wear a tie to work or if they wear one to church, like my husband. The awesome red and white tie above is just one of many ties that they have available. I used it first because ties are very hard to photograph and I wanted you to see the full tie, not folded over like the one I had to do in order to get the whole tie in the picture.
     
    The tie and the bowtie that we received to review came from Neck-Tie.com and my husband loves the color of blue, it is one of his favorite colors.
     
     
     
    This tie I believe is the solid Midnight Cerulean Blue, not sure but I think it matches that color the best that I could find. The ties are 100% woven polyester microfiber and are made by hand from Jon vanDyk. According to the website they are made to feel similar to silk and I would have to agree. It has a very nice feel and glides smoothly over my hands.
     
    Since the tie is made from the woven polyester microfiber it will have more broad washing and care instructions, without necessarily having to dry clean the neck wear. Another great thing about this tie is that it only costs $5.00! Yes, you read right, the price of this tie and many more is only $5.00 and you won't have to dry clean it! There are around 348 of these ties in a wide array of colors and designs so I don't think you will have a problem finding one to fit your partner!
     
    This tie is 'regular length' of 59"(148 cm) and the width of the tie tip is hip and fashionable with a width of 3.5"(9cm). The tie has a full matching loop on the back as well as the label. Also, the tip lining is tastefully woven with the Jon VanDyk name. Mike said he had no trouble getting it to work.
    You can find more instructions on how to tie different knots by going to the link I provided and checking for the one you want. They also have still pictures if a video is not your thing.
     
    They do have extra long ties for $8.00 and if you want woven silk ties, they are only $10 each. You can also get clip on ties for $5.00 along with boy's ties and if you are like my father-in-law, he still uses cloth hankys in his suit pocket, you can find those here as well. If you need to have your ties custom made or just prefer them that way, that is also possible. You will find a Custom Tie Tab at the top of their website, just click on that and it will take you where you need to go.
      
     
    Now, for the bowtie, Mike doesn't wear these and neither does his Dad (a Baptist Preacher) so we are going to give this to his nephew (brother's son) who does. He lives in the same town as his Dad (and goes to his church every Sunday) so Mike is going over there tomorrow for a visit (they live an hour and a half from us) and I will send this with him. I was afraid to wait any longer on this review since it has a tight schedule so I won't be able to give you any info on how he liked it but it is made with the same material as the tie above and is the same color.
    The tie feels just as nice as the tie and I have no doubt that Andrew will love it. These hand made bowtie is 'pre-neckweard' and has enough length to fit neck sizes up to 20"(50 cm). This beautiful bowtie is a very awesome color of blue and will go well with a lot of other colors.
     
    This loom woven, pure woven neckwear is available with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. And yes, the bowties are also $5.00 each! You won't believe how many you have to choose from!! There are 242 bowties available in a wide array of colors and designs.
     
    Neck-Tie.com website is very user friendly and all of the categories are at the top of the page which makes it very easy to navigate. At the bottom of the page is some more detailed areas that you may or may not need. I don't think you will have any problems finding what you need so go explore and find something awesome for your guy!

    TV StoreOnline.com T-Shirt Review & Giveaway **Closed**


     
     
    I received a really awesome t-shirt from TVStoreOnline.com for my grandson, J.W! And you guessed it, they specialize in shirts for men, women and some youth t-shirts that are either from TV shows or movies! Now, how cool is that? You can have all of your favorite characters from your favorite television show or movie on a shirt that you can wear! It's almost as good as getting to visit the show itself.
     
     
    My husband Mike is holding up the shirt because of course it's too small for him to wear, but we had thought my grandson was going to get to visit us (they live in another state) but they had to cancel when I got sick and had to have some tests done and then he had games the next 2 weekends. So, I thought I better not hold the review up for him so, he will get it on his birthday in August. I thought about waiting but I have already had it long enough and didn't want to wait another 2 weeks.
     
    It's an awesome shirt, with Batman on it, his favorite superhero, and I even got it a tad big for him so that it will last a little bit longer than usual. Kids wear them kind of big nowadays, anyway, so I think it will be okay. I would rather he have it for two years versus one year and he can grow into it. They also have the words, Dark Knight on it and he will really get a kick out of that.
     
    Check it out below:
     
     
    This is much better, huh? I don't know if it was because Mike had on black also that the shirt didn't pop out like it should have or my camera is acting up. But, good thing I took a close up of what the picture and words were, don't you think?
     
    The shirt is 100% cotton, pre-shrunk, so we won't have to worry about it shrinking. Plus it being 100% cotton, it will wear well and not be itchy. I do not like itchy shirts and it is always a gamble when ordering online but with TVStoreOnline, you won't have that problem.
     
    The basics of the youth Batman shirt:
     
  • Black
  • 100% cotton
  • Officially Licensed
  • Standard Fit

    They have quit a selection of Super Hero shirts and they all look really awesome and the pictures are so clear and perfect that your youngster won't have any trouble recognizing the heroes and what they are doing.  My grandson loves Batman and never fails to watch any of the movies or cartoons about him, so I know I made the right call but you can also choose between Spiderman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Captain America.
  • I almost got Mike one of the M & M's instead of getting J.W. the Batman but in the end I went with a shirt for J.W. since school is fixing to start and I wanted him to have some fun shirts to wear. Mike really does love M & M's and we even call ourselves M & M with our names being Mike & Mary. He would have loved it and I may still do it for Christmas or something. They even have the M & M's in onesie's for your baby! They are so very cute! We still get a kick out of the commercials that come on TV with them.

    I don't think you will have to worry about the quality of this shirt. I went ahead and washed this one to make sure it was okay and to save his Mom from having to wash it, and it held up just fine. I did not notice any shrinking or any colors fading. Of course, I am always extra careful with tee shirts and always hang them up to dry, so I did not see any coloring or misshapen form in the tee shirt either. I know his mother will be happy that she has one less thing to do when upacking my Back to School package I will be sending her next week.

    They even have other kinds of memorabilia from TV shows, like from Big Bang Theory, you can get a set of glasses that have something from the show on them:


    They have hats, socks, belts, slippers, tote bags, coffee mugs, dolls, pillows and even plush animals you can get with those logo's on them! I even saw a trivia game! You can also get costumes thru them, so now you have another Halloween stop you can check out for your 80's costume! They have a wide range of goodies that any movie or television buff could ever want from their favorite show.
