Keeping it Warm

Fall is an excuse for cute scarves, pumpkin spice, and lots of shopping around. As the season and the weather transitions, I’m looking for things to make my routine more doable.

For example, mornings are cold, and there’s nothing worse than freezing in the car and waiting an eternity for the heater to work. Although I love the vibes of the cold months, I don’t enjoy dealing with the brutality of it, so I went ahead and got a hold of Big Ant heated seat cushion.

There were a few things that inspired my decision to try it. For example, I liked that this was marketed as an universal seat for cars. This meant that I would be able to move it around depending on which car I would use for the day. I also liked how they promoted a flame retardant sponge and high quality resistance wires. I’m always a little paranoid about the flame factor with these types of articles, especially after I saw my college roommate’s plugin blanket catch on fire!

I also liked how simple the packaging was. The seat is large enough, but the packaging materials and instructions didn’t take up a lot of space, so you’re able to store it anywhere around the house, until you need to use it. I also think that the plaid sewing design gives it a nice look for the most elegant to the most simple car craftsmanship.

At first, I was concerned about the fact that it can take 3-5 minutes to warm up. In my opinion, it felt that it would take forever to warm up while I was freezing my butt off. But after trying it, I figured it was a total exaggeration! If you think about it logically, any product of this nature (that is safe) won’t go from 0 to hot in a snap; this isn’t a realistic expectation, neither would it promote safe standards (as people take heat differently or feel comfortable in different heat settings).

In simple terms: I love it. This heated seat cushion is easy to plug and warms ups right under 5 minutes. It has an anti-slip and rubber sole, which creates a great grip between myself and the seat (no matter what I wear) – you know, sometimes silky fabrics or dresses can become a slippery mess. It has low and high heat settings, keeping a natural temperate between 110 and 120 Fahrenheit. The seat is also standard, so I was able to fit in in my van and sports car.

I think anyone that needs additional heating during the winter, who doesn’t necessarily use their car heat at a high setting, or who wants butt comfort as they drive should give this a try. I personally think that there is a huge difference between the car’s heating hitting your face vs. feeling warmth directly on your body.

Overall and very exciting find. Check it out!


It Keeps Getting Better


This is seriously a dream come true. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better – it did. I’m crazy obsessed with my Marrado Table Lamp and Bluetooth Speaker, and I can’t shut up about it.

I love how different and versatile this lamp is, so I definitely had to go for it!

The lamp has a modern, sleek, and super smooth look. I love that everything works through touch sensor and it is easy to work around. The table lamp have warm and bright lighting settings to work it according to your needs; and when you want to spice it up, you also have a color setting mode, allowing you to change the lighting to purple, blue, red, etc.

Apart from the cool lighting settings, it also allows you to pair your smartphone via Bluetooth. The connection is easy, fast, and the Bluetooth doesn’t require any complicated passwords or pairing instructions. I was more than surprised when I paired my iPhone to the lamp – the music goes as loud as can be, all while sounding so smooth and with amazing harmony. Again, I didn’t expect this lamp to sound so well, meaning that I’m anticipating many fun activities with it. You can actually charge the lamp and then use it fully wireless, which is very feasible and free.

I’m so super obsessed and I think you should check it out!

At this point, you’re probably aware of my ongoing obsession with Bluetooth speakers; I love the feasibility, the freedom, the lightweight, the power, etc.

At time passes by, I notice more and more improvement in features, with AncordWorks Bluetooth shower speaker being one of the coolest.

There are so many things that are different about this speaker, compared to the typical Bluetooth speaker. Let’s start with the fact that it is waterproof! This mean that I can use it while in the shower and even answer phone calls without worrying about getting my iPhone wet!

AncordWorks is very lightweight and feels great in the hands, but at the same time it is very well made and it is super sturdy, which is a necessary feature as it is shock, dirt, and sand proof.

The Bluetooth connection to my iPhone is easy, smooth, and doesn’t require a password! – Earlier speakers required a password to connect with my iPhone, which was pretty annoying and time consuming (as it wasn’t a custom password).

AncordWorks can play music up to 23 hours (none of the speakers I own can’t play music this long, maybe 5 hours at most), and it comes with a memory card and card reader which allows you to store up to 1,000 songs.

The sound is great, and can go loud without the sound of static…

PS. It also comes with all the necessary charging tools and a very suction cup to mount it in the shower.

Fall Must-Haves

It’s the first day of October, and for the first time this fall, we had a nicely chilly day, which is bittersweet.

With the changes in season also comes new beauty routines, and one of the things that is always affected by these changes is my hair. The colder weather makes my hair stay in place for longer periods of time; however, I struggle with things such as hair that becomes very dry and tangled. There are a few things that I’ve been using to aid this dryness, with one of my favorites being Rusk Deepshine Oil Moisture Conditioner.

This conditioner is specifically aimed for hydration and smoothness, detangling and transforming dry hair! Rusk Deepshine is enriched with argan oil, and provides protection against chemical damage, thermal damage, and even damage caused by environmental changes (bingo!).

I love that a little bit of this conditioner goes a long way (I tend to need huge chunks of conditioner to detangle my hair). It also detangles my hair easily (meaning that I don’t have to pull my hair extra hard to detangle, which in the long run is damaging for the hair). In the end, it leaves my hair super smooth, meaning that I’m needing less products to keep my hair in place, and for the same reasons I can go longer without washing my hair.

This is simply a miracle worker and I certainly think you should check it out!
