Hiya! I hope you had a great weekend.
I am still battling my allergies and now I have a 'detoxification' type thing going on from Oil Pulling which I started a couple of weeks ago (I'll be doing a post about it soon).
I have been using a few things to try and combat my symptoms, I received a Diffuser/humidifier to review last month and it came at the right time as my Hubby and eldest two were also suffereing from summer allergies and we all also had colds that made us feel horrible.
The Cool Breeze Aroma Diffuser is so cute. It has a dinosaur egg design that I find adorable, I love cutesy things so this is right up my street.
The lights change colour and you can leave it to run through the colour sequence or you can set it to stay on your desired colour. The way the lights are set out make them light up the room so nicely and reminds me of a light display myself and the kiddies had when younger.
My youngest can literally stare at it for ages when it's on.
The mist can be set to desired intensity.
The unit has a timer and auto shut off.
I put an oil blend to help the allergies and cold symptoms - Rosemary, Olbas, Peppermint and Frankincense. The blend really helped and smelled really nice too. I'd recommend you give this blend a try if like us you are feeling yucky.
A few blends to also try are:
Lemon and Rosemary - to freshen the room
Lavender and Rosemary - to freshen both room and my mood
Rose, Lemon and Frankincense - to uplift and give a lovely scent to room
Lemongrass and Cedarwood - for odour removal in the kitchen.
I am loving the diffuser so far.
I recorded an Unboxing and First Impression video:

Hi everyone I hope you are doing well and enjoying the mild weather as we shift into Autumn.
The weather here is still warm for the most part and I have been enjoying iced beverages. I have been wanting to try Matcha Powder for ages but didn't get round to buying any so when I was asked to review some I jumped at the chance lol. I decided to try an Iced Latte and since I'm still having dairy intolerance/allergy issues, I made it with some Almond Milk.
I have to admit, when the powder arrived, I was surprised at the size as I had seen big tubs in costco(well it's Costco after all lol) and this was a smallish pouch. I watched the video on their site and the lady explained how potent it was ans also gave some tips on how she liked to use it.
When I made a cup of Matcha Tea, I was actually shocked at the strength!! Potent is the word allright!
With this in mind, I decided to use less powder for my latte.
Almond Milk - I used Alpro unroasted, unsweetened
Dairy Free Creamer - I used Walden Farms Calorie Free
Ice - lot's of it.
Pour some boiling water into a cup, add some Matcha and stir well.
Pour some Almond Milk in (I used it cold so it would cool down the Matcha so my glass didn't shatter when it had the ice in),
Stir, add a little non dairy creamer, stir again,
Place lots of ice into your glass (I used a bottle) - about three quarters full - and poured the latte on top of the ice (if you are making your own iced beverage, please check temperature of latte as your glass may shatter/break it it's too hot when you pour onto the ice - a lesson I learned a while ago when making iced coffee).
I put a straw into my iced latte ( I love the paper ones) and gave it a stir as it can become watery on top - if you're not using a straw (why not? iced latte tastes so much better with a straw lol) then give it a stir.
- Enjoy ;)
