Product Review - Boyfriend ~ by Kate Walsh

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh ~ this sensual new fragrance will have you hooked instantly!  I reviewed the fragrance and had so many positive comments!  I personally love the rollerball, it is convenient ~ and you can carry it in your purse and pull it out just before heading into work, to that special event, or just before meeting with that special someone after work!

Actress Kate Walsh wanted to capture the scent of a guy on a girl:  a man's cologne mixed with perfume, the smell that lingers on the skin.  This fragrance evokes memories of that time after he has left for the day - when she gently awakes in a bed that's still warmly redolent of "boyfriend".

An alluring balance of vanilla, jasmine blossoms, and an accord of amber is set against the sensual scents of a man, including a light musk and a shimmer of fresh woods.

PRODUCT BEING REVIEWED:  Complete Dry Rub Gift Set

$ COST:  If you are just wanting to try an individual rub, you can get a 3.25 - 4.0 oz jar or bottle for about $5.50.  They offer trios and gift-sets from $16.00 - $39.95, depending on what you are looking for.  These are very inexpensive, and very high-quality!  The gift baskets also come with recipes!

Deb's Review of the Complete Dry Rub Gift Set:  I am in love with these rubs!  I cannot express the high-quality they maintain in their rubs.  We have tried the Chipotle BBQ, the Jamaican Jerk and the Cracked Pepper so far, and love them all!  I cannot wait to try the Yummy Chicken, Barabicu and the Sabroso!  My kids are sometimes pretty particular about trying new things, as I am sure yours can be too.  They loved it!  These spices are very well packaged and worth every penny!  This particular gift set ships for only $30.00 and includes a Knox's Dry Rub Recipe Booklet!  There are some recipes in there I cannot wait to try out!  If you normally purchase spices and rubs, you know how pricey they are in the grocery stores and markets.  These very much larger than I ever anticipated.  They will last awhile!!  I am officially hooked!

Orthobean - Review and GIVEAWAY **ENTER NOW**


PRODUCT AND COMPANY OVERVIEW:  Orthobean products were created while Jimmy was recovering from many surgeries on his foot, after an accident.  Many things were placed under his foot in an attempt to alleviate some of the pain.  Nothing seemed to work.  Many did not have enough cushion, some had the cushion but it did not relieve any of the pressure.  Finally, through a process of consultation with medical professionals, physical therapists and consumers, the Orthobean family of products was formed.   Exhaustive research, countless designs, and feedback from their research consultants yielded the Orthobean family of products.  Products to help you live your active life with more comfort everyday!!

$ COST:  Orthobean has 4 orthopedic products ranging in price from $24.95 to $59.95.  They feature The Bow, the Ring, the Curve and The Bodybean.  Go here to view their products and learn a little more about their wonderful versatility!

Deb's Review of The Ring:  The Ring is larger, and therefore many like to use it at home. However, I like mine while I am riding in the car, at a sporting event, or when I am just watching TV.  The Ring is the one!  Cuddle up with the Ring anyplace and let it mold to the shape of your body and eliminate pressure points. The Ring is perfect for:
  • Home Comfort
  • Auto Comfort
  • Travel Comfort
  • Sporting Events
  • Support Surface
  • Off-Load Limbs
  • Care Gifting
  • Dorm Rooms at School
  • Post Procedure Comfort

Deb's Review of The Curve:  The Curve can be used not only to support your neck but also your shoulders, legs, arms…the possibilities are endless.  The unique design of the curve allows it to support any body part you choose.  The stretchy spandex/nylon cover allows airflow to reduce heat while the millions of ultra-slippery microbeads contour and support anywhere you choose.The Orthobean Curve is perfect for:

  • Home Comfort
  • Auto Comfort
  • Travel Comfort
  • Sporting Events
  • Support Surface
  • Off-Load Limbs
  • Post Procedure Comfort

What is the secret to the Orthobeans?  I personally believe the secret is all in the microbeads.  Microbead pillows adapt o your desired position and provide support and stability to any part.  Microbead pillows are designed for comfort and durability.  Microbeads will not bunch up like conventional pillows.  Their ability to provide airflow, in conjunction with the spandez/nylon cover allows the pillow to stay cool, no matter how long the pillow is used.  The microbeads are also hypoallergenic.  Many people suffer with allergies, and with the Orthobean products, you do not risk that, since they are all hypoallergenic!  Also, the Orthobean pillows are more versatile than a conventional pillow.  The variety of sizes and shapes allows Orthobean to provide the comfort and support you desire.    

Orthobean is awarding one winner BOTH products I reviewed!  Yes, you get The Curve as well as The Ring!  What an amazing double giveaway!!!  The contest begins now and will run through 12/22/11.  The winner will be announced on 12/23/11 The winner will be chosen via  This contest is open to U.S. residents only.  GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!
