Making Paper Crafts Using #Orchid Origami Paper #Review

So excited to try this Origami paper.  Although I am not super crafty but for my children's entertainment sake I try to be one. LOL. I've learnt some paper crafts when I was a  kid. I know paper crafts are fun to make and these particular paper crafts that I learned can bring back great memories of my childhood whenever I make them.  I want to pass them unto my children and other kids as well. I can't remember all the origami crafts I used to make but there are few I can recall vividly which I will show on the photos below.

First I want to tell you about the paper I used which I received  for free in exchange of my review. It's called Orchid Origami paper, comes in 500 sheets, 10 vibrant colors and measured 6"x6". It also came with a guide on how to make an origami star.  Me and my middle son had a great time making different origami crafts. What I love about Orchid Origami Paper is that it's not too thick or too thin, very easy to fold. It's smooth and feels good to touch. You don't need a scissor if you need to do some cutting. Just fold it nicely and tear the part you wanted cut. Great quality paper you can use for different origami crafts. One thing I  want to suggest is that I hope they make the other side colored as well and not one side only. But for the most part, I like this paper. 





Here are the samples of the origami crafts we made and at the very bottom you'll see a video of my son making a paper airplane. Origami fish is one of my favorite paper crafts when I was a kid and up to now. I can add a string on the top side of the fish, tie the string to a stick and pretend I am fishing.




Another thing I love to make is the paper boat. I remembered playing with my friends, having a boat racing with them on a shallow river. That was a lot of fun. 


I know I didn't include the steps on how to make these origami crafts but I will try to make a video next time and share it on my blog. But here's the video of my son making paper airplane. Sorry the end was cut off and the video is shaky. But I hope you enjoy it.

FlavFusion (TM) 25 oz Infuser Water Bottle Review #fruitfusion



Do you dislike drinking a plane and nasty tasting tap water from the faucet. I do!! But drinking water is something we can't avoid. It has a lot of health benefits and it does a lot of great things to our body. I try drinking maybe four to five glasses a day but I also drink other stuffs like juice or coffee. The problem I have is that our water doesn't taste right so I sometimes dislike drinking water unless if it's flavored or if it's coffee or chocolate milk. You can see my dilemma, I am trying to lose weight by cutting back drinking sweet beverages but I despise drinking water more than I could take. Where we live has a hard water that's why we installed water softener on our water system. But It doesn't make our water taste any better.

I have heard people talking about water infusion and I had no clue what it meant. Until, FlavFusion sent me a free sample of their water bottle infuser for review. Now, it all made sense. I can make my very own naturally flavored water by adding my favorite sliced fruits. Then I'll get to enjoy drinking more water with no added artificial sugar or flavoring. How brilliant.

Here are the parts of the Infuser Water bottle that I received:  

From Left to Right

1. Basket- where you put your sliced fruits.
2. Filter - it filters fruit seeds and fruit chunk before the water goes into the sipper.
3. Locking Flip Top Sipper Lid- where you drink and also easily refill your bottle.
4. Bottle- 25 oz BPA free and made of Tritan plastic.



with sliced orange 



What I think about FlavFusion 25 oz Infuser Water Bottle

This is my very first Infuser water bottle, so I can't compare it to other brands. But one thing I could tell you is that I am very impressed with it and I love it. I take it to work everyday and I don't run out of water fast because of how much water I can take in this container. 

I can say that this product is durable. The bottle itself although made from plastic, but feels thick and strong yet light weight. Not just an ordinary plastic because it's made from Tritan and its BPA and Lead free according to the manufacturer. I have never drop this bottle, it has a no slip grip design on the outside preventing from slipping off your fingers and I can carry it with just one finger as well because of the hook attached to it. What I love the most is the locking flip top sipper. I never had to worry about spills or leak. In fact I carry this infuser inside my purse and it's laying sideways but yet no spills. I don't worry about it getting unlock because it doesn't get unlock easily. The whole thing is easy to wash because all parts can be taken apart. The basket where my sliced fruit/s is placed allows the water to flow giving a nice sweet natural fruity flavor to my water. The filter does a great job separating the seeds and fruit chunks from the water so I won't swallow any of them. I really enjoyed drinking water now, I experimented with different fruits but strawberry is my favorite so far.
Like I said I am very impressed with this product and use it every single day. If you want more information or want to place an order visit their Amazon link below.

Compression Shirt For Women Review #GoddessRashGuards


Still very cold here in Wisconsin but the sun is out and I feel like driving my bicycle. Ha ha just my wishful thinking though. I have seen people riding their bicycle even on winter season as long as the sun is out and it's not too cold.   But, too bad I am not yet into that kind of outdoor activity. Wisconsin weather is too cold for a Filipina like me that grew up in a tropical country. No, I didn't go out biking but I am showing you what I'm going to wear this summer when the weather is beautiful and perfect for biking.


I am wearing a Compression shirt for women by Goddess Rash Guards. I got it for a discounted price for product evaluation purposes. It's a perfect work-out outfit because it's lightweight and gentle on skin. I wear it during my indoor work outs and when I feel like wearing it. When I feel too cold, I wear it under another shirt. I even wore it to work under my blouse or sweater. They come in four colors( black, light blue, turquoise and white) I ordered black because I like black outfit for work outs. 



doing some stretching exercise


I love that It's made in USA,  very flexible, made from nylon, spandex and with double flat lock stitching. Compression shirt is stretchable I can do stretching exercises with ease and comfort. It dries easily too, when I am sweating a lot I don't feel like soaking in wet shirt so I can continue on my work outs. I love the idea that it's a long sleeve, which make it a perfect outfit for outdoor activities. According to the manufacturer, the shirt feature a UPF 50+ that block out sun harmful rays and keep skin young and beautiful.  I have  tan and dry skin and I am careful not to get anymore sunburn otherwise my skin will look extremely dry. 





With Goddess Rash Guards Compression Shirt I can focus more on my what I'm doing rather than what I am wearing. I know I will look good and feel comfy with this shirt so I don't have to worry about outfit malfunction while doing my activities. I think what I love the most is the 100% money back guarantee and the lifetime warranty. Who offers that kind of warranty? Not a lot of manufacturer does.  I love this shirt and recommends it to any women.

#Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag #Review


Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag with side pockets
Over the years I think I bought a total of five to six lunch bags. I have two children that goes to school, and I also use one to carry food to work. Lunch bags are a necessity to us. I even use one to store and carry my baby's milk when we go on a trip. I prefer insulated ones because it preserves the temperature of the food or drinks. Our lunch bags comes in different sizes, colors, brands and prices. Though I got five of them, It seems as if I don't feel satisfied with their performance and I find myself searching for something that match my needs. My kids never seems bothered though, I mean they don't care for the lunch bag as long as they have food to eat. I just don't like how some lunch bags are designed. We have one where I have to put a container at the bottom as a base so it will stand evenly and stable on a counter.

So glad I was offered to review this amazing Sacko Insulated Lunch bag. I received one for free in exchange of my honest opinion. I was just looking for a perfect size that I could use to carry food to work. Not so big and not so small and Sacko Lunch bag met my needs.





I choose the  red color because it looks attractive. This lunch bag look smaller from the outside but actually spacious on the inside. I was able to fit two small containers of my food, a can of v8 juice, a pear and  a mandarin fruit and a cup of yogurt for my lunch at work. It has two side mesh pockets, i put my vacuum sealed water bottle on one side and my two mints containers on the other side. 

When we went on a trip one time, I used it to carry my baby's milk bottles. I was able to fit 5 milk bottles and a water container inside. This lunch bag kept the milk cold for the 4 hour we were on a trip.



loaded with 5 milk bottles, one water container and another water container on the side pocket
The design is excellent, you can carry more stuffs as you want. The two side mesh pockets is a brilliant idea. I sometimes put my cellphone there too for easy access. It has a zipper on the main compartment and front pocket making your items safe. It is very easy to carry because of the adjustable shoulder strap. It looks very sturdy and very easy to clean. I washed it one time I accidentally spilled my opened can of juice and it doesn't take too look to dry it. I am giving this product a five star and also I recommend it. In fact I use it to carry my lunch to work everyday.
