Product Review: +Lifeguard mini 1portable charger


I am constantly on the run. One of the things that I depend on is my cellphone. I absolutely cannot leave the house without my cellphone. Depending on how my day is going is how much battery juice I have on my cell. There are days where I am constantly on the phone and do not have time to leave my cellphone plugged to a wall charger. That is where having a reliable portable charger comes in.

I was able to review the +Lifeguard mini 1 portable charger and I fell in love. I love gadgets especially ones that make my life more easier and this portable charger definitely does that. As soon as it arrived I plugged it in to fully charge. The next day I got the opportunity to use it since my Galaxy S4 decided to die on me early in the morning while I was out running errands.

One of the things that impressed me right away was the quickness in which it fully charged my cellphone. I would say in about an hour I had a fully charged cellphone. What was more impressive was that it still had more juice left in it to charge my cell more if it needed it. The +Lifeguard has a premium powerbank that consists of a Samsung Grade A Cell battery. Its 3000mAh gives it enough power to charge my cell like it did and still have more power.

If you are wondering how will you know when your charging is complete.. all you have to do is look at the LED on the side of the +Lifeguard. The LED will light up Blue when it is charging a device and the LED will turn off when it is fully charged. When you are charging the portable charger the LED will be Red and it will turn off when it has been fully charged.


The body build of this portable charger is excellent. It is the size of some of my lipsticks which makes it so convenient for me to carry. I just put it in my pocket and go. The tough aluminum shell makes it impact resistant which is great when my kids get ahold of it. I was also impressed with +LIFEGUARD’s confidence in the MINI 1 because they back up their product with a 18-month money-back guarantee. I am all around impressed with the +Lifeguard mini 1 portable charger.

Last but not least I want to let you know that For a limited time when you order this portable charger, you will get a 14.00 lightening cable for free!! As if you weren’t already getting a good deal you get an added bonus!!! I thought that was awesome because I am sure we all own a device that doesn’t use a micro USB Cord and instead requires a lightening cable.

Disclosure: I was provided the +Lifeguard mini 1 portable charger for review purposes. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

How was your Easter Weekend ?

How was your Easter weekend? Ours was calm and relaxed….just how I like it. Now I am not saying that it wasn’t noisy because unless my kids are sleeping there is always some kind of noise in my house. I find strange and somewhat alarming if the house is too quiet. I know when the house is too quiet it means the boys are up to something or feeling sick.

We had a little Easter egg hunt for the kids and then we had a BBQ. My brother in law did the BBQ and the food was quite delicious. I love drama free days and this Easter was perfect in my book. It would have been even better if my Brother in law had his kids over but it didn’t work out that way. Hopefully we will have them over soon and we can celebrate his boys birthday and my boys birthday with a nice BBQ and some birthday cake.

Product Review: Purex® Crystals Scent splash


I am one of those people who loves her laundry smelling fresh and clean. There is one thing in this house that is never completely done and that is laundry. I like to make sure that my kids laundry is fresh and clean at all times. Having overactive kids means that they sweat in their clothes, they get mud in their clothes and just plain out get dirty. I absolutely need that extra in-wash fragrance booster with my boys!!

Not only do I like to make sure that the stains come out of the clothes, but I also like to make sure that they have that fresh scent too. I have used Purex® crystals to give my detergent that extra boost on all the clothes and now I had the opportunity to try out Purex Crystals scent splash in liquid form. I love the ease of choosing how much or how little liquid my clothes needs at that wash. For instance I added a little more than I usually do to my kids clothes after they spent all day running around at the park and came home all sweaty..yuck!!

I got to try out the Fresh Lavender Blossom and I just love lavender fragrance.

Book Review : Careful By Randy Anderson

Careful Book Cover Careful
Randy Anderson

For two decades Tyler Gibbons has been keeping a secret from his family. At the tender age of sixteen, Tyler embarks on a student exchange program. Sent to the Andean city of Ambato, Ecuador, he finds daily adventure as he tries to fit in at school, connect with his host family, and navigate through a world of beaches, volcanoes, and jungles. But tucked deep inside this year are events so profound, so unexpected, they forever shape the man he will become.

Now, 25 years later, his mother pulls these soaring tales from her son, exposing, for the first time, the source of a deep unhappiness. While these memories contain the wounds of an unresolved past, they also possess the power to heal his painful present.

Thoughtfully crafted and boldly told, Tyler’s journey takes the reader on a wild South American adventure, while illuminating a mother’s unyielding power to heal her child.

Review: This is a coming of age story of a boy named Tyler who goes to Ecuador as an exchange student and while there learns hard facets of life that turn him into a man. Tyler is faced with different situations that would make anyone grow up. The story starts out by Tyler opening up to his mother who is sick and dying and she wants to know about the trip her son took 25 years earlier that changed her son completely. Tyler finally lets know exactly what went on when he took the trip to Ecuador that changed his life.

This story showed how powerful a mother’s love is and how no matter what culture you are in, family will always be family and help each other out. This book has some twists and turns that you don’t quite expect, but it definitely made the story better. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a book that has real life situations or looking for a book that will make you feel.

* This book had topics which might make some unconfortable( death, abortion,gay)*

Dial® Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap Review and Giveaway


Finding a hand soap that will not only leave your hands clean, but also smelling delicious can be quite a hard task. I am constantly washing my hands after doing household duties and taking care of all my kids. With the constant washing of my hands comes the drying of the natural moisture in my hands. One of my biggest factors when buying hand soap is how much moisture will it provide. I also love a hand soap that will leave my hands smelling nice and fresh.


Everyone should be using a conditioning soap when they are using hand soaps. You want to make sure you keep your hands nice and young looking for as long as you can. My mother used to say that you can always tell a woman’s age by the look of her hands. I know I want my hands to say that I look like a teenager even though I am far from there now.


Ladies and Gentleman…yes, you men also need to make sure you take care of your hands too. You need to make sure your Hand soap provides refreshing moisture such as Dial® Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap does from The Boutique Collection.
This Dial hand soap has a premium formula with gentle micro scrubbers that deep cleanses while providing moisturizing and soothing your skin. One of the first things I loved was the nice sweet smell that left my hands smelling wonderful. I was extremely impressed with how soft my hands felt after washing them with Dial’s Sugar Cane Husk hand soap.

As a mom to 6 kids I can definitely tell you that my kids can get pretty dirty and making sure they wash their hands can be quite a task but not with this hand soap. This deep cleansing hand soap has quickly become the family hand soap and we will be buying more after we run out.

We are huge Disney fans in my house. If Disney movies aren’t playing in our house, someone is singing a Disney song. You better believe my children felt like it was Easter already with the package that UPS delivered us. I have never seen my kids more eager for me to tear open the package and see the pack that came with 4 CD’s. In the cute early Easter pack were these cds…

hop to the music

Frozen: which my girls loved right away. My boys loved singing along too, but I do feel my girls enjoyed singing Let it Go more than my boys did.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Volume 1: Guardians of the Galaxy was my favorite because I grew up listening to some of these songs. My older kids loved the songs too and my younger twins just had a blast dancing along to their teenage sisters signing. I would say that this cd got the whole family involved.

Disney Junior DJ Shuffle 2: My 6 year old twins claimed this cd as their own and for once they were happy to know most of these songs and got to show their older siblings that they too can sing along and perform just like them. I loved playing the instrumental part and seeing how much of the songs my boys remembered.

Disney’s Into the Woods: Having seen the movie my second oldest daughter right away claimed this cd. She absolutely loved the movie and the songs that went with it. She hopes to be a singer or performer when she grows up and these are the perfect songs to practice singing too. I must admit I do love her singing along to this soundtrack.

Buy: You too can buy Disney cds and many more at the Disney Music Emporium.

Win : Disney Music and Entertainment New Media Network have generously offered to give one Domesticvixen reader their own “Hop to the Music” pack. The Giveaway ends April 4th, 2015!

My daughter is looking forward to high school and I am too

We had orientation for my second daughter. She is getting ready to go to high school and orientation day was to see what electives she would like to take and to see all the different programs the school offers. My child being the artistic one of course signed up for choir and cheer and drama and band. Anything involving music and she is there. If doesn’t matter to her if there isLimited availability.
I am sure if her school offered deejay training she would have signed up for that too. I am glad that she is enthusiastic about all the new electives and classes her school is offering but I told her to only sign up for things she is truly going to dedicate time for. I told her if her heart is not going to be in it then don’t do it and give others a chance to enjoy that spot especially if they are going to appreciate it and give it their full attention.

I am looking forward to seeing her perform this year. I truly love my daughters voice and I think all these years of choir have taught her a lot and her voice and singing keeps on getting better and better. I am going to try and record her singing and post it here so all of you guys can enjoy her signing too.

Please let this be the last of it

I don’t know what it is but we have been having a string of unfortunate events. I am so ready for the good luck and blessings to come. In December I had to have emergency gall bladder surgery. I finally recovered from that and last Sunday we got rear ended. My back and neck and part of my head got messed up. The doctor thought it might be a concussion due to the whiplash. I have been dealing with that pain and if I didn’t feel shitty enough, I find out that my bank account was compromised. I have fraudulent charges on my account and my account has been frozen while they investigate and send me a new card.

We also got a ticket in the mail for being on the fastpass express lane on the freeway when I am pretty sure we changed lanes before the express lane started. I am so ready to have all these things be the end of bad and unfortunate events. My stress level is through the roof and I am sure that is not good for the high blood pressure that the doctor thinks I have. Which in turn reminds me that I need to schedule a physical for myself. I have already scheduled physicals for the girls, I need to get the boys and myself done too.
