Poo-Pourri Before-You-Go Toilet Spray

Poo-Pourri Guarantee

Poo-Pourri Before You Go Toilet Spray – A seriously genius product!

I first came across Poo-Pourri on Amazon last holiday season when it was being advertised on one of their lightning deals where most product are about 20% below their normal retail price. The title is catchy, the bottle packaging is pretty, and the product claim honestly made me curious. This is their unforgettable catch phrase: “Spritz the Bowl Before-You-Go and No One Else Will Ever Know!” Then I started noticing the commercials on TV with a beautiful spokesmodel with perfectly coiffed hair and an English accent. 

I researched the product a little more before purchasing it to better understand how it works. Amazon’s product description and the brand’s website stated that Poo-Pourri is a pure blend of natural essential oils. When spritzed into the toilet bowl (before using the toilet!), the products natural oil blend creates a film on the surface of the water. This creates a barrier which traps odor under the surface – allowing only the scent of Poo-Pourri to stand out. It comes in about 30 different varieties of scents and various sizes ranging from a mini travel size 2 oz spray bottle, all the way to a 16 oz family size bottle.

All the reviews I came across were very positive – the Amazon listing for this product actually has over 7000 reviews, and Poo-Pourri is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars. That’s really impressive in my opinion! I thought no harm could be done even if the product didn’t work as well as the reviewers were suggesting when it came to masking odors – for the very least I could use it as an air freshener. The big decision was trying to first decipher their scents (as they all have cool and unusual names), then selecting which specific one I wanted to try. I came across the following info on the web which I found pretty useful. Though this list doesn’t cover all 30 plus different scents, it had enough options for me to try my first scent. I ended up getting the original which is a mild citrusy blend.

Trap-A-Crap – SECRET blend of natural essential oils

After trying it once, I was totally hooked! The product seriously works wonders if you have a toilet which gets high traffic. Even if that’s not the case, spritzing it seriously makes your bathroom smell like a relaxing spa. I’ve also tried the Heaven Scent which is really sweet and flowery, jasmine to be exact. Definitely smells extremely feminine, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing! If you want to try them out, Amazon has literally all their scents available in various sizes – plus I like their return policy just in case a scent happened to be too strong or unpleasant. I have also seen a couple of varies in CVS stores.

Wen by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner

Here’s one of my all time favorite must have hair care products: Wen by Chaz Dean cleansing conditioner.

This product was really popular back when I was a high school kid. I remember watching late night infomercials with various celebrities who promised shiny and voluminous hair which was easy to manage just after one wash. I honestly thought it was just an advertising gimmick. Then several years later I stumbled upon it on Amazon. I was looking for a good hair product for dry and over processed hair and Wen products had a ton of positive reviews.

How to get gorgeous hair?

Wen cleansing conditioner is advertised as a 5 in 1 formula, and is supposed to takes place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner. They say that it cleanses hair thoroughly without lather or harsh ingredients and won’t strip hair of its natural oils. The product claims to leave hair with strength, moisture, manageability and better color retention. It comes in several year round scents such as sweet almond mint, pomegranate, lavender, cucumber aloe, green tea and fig. New scents are usually available around the holidays such as ginger pumpkin and apple spice or autumn and winter cranberry mint for Christmas season. They all smell heavenly. One of my recent favorites is the Tea Tree cleansing conditioner – it smells refreshing and lightly tingles your scalp.

I’m a low maintenance girl when it comes to hair care and I’ve never used 5 different products after a shower, but this was an amazing find as a replacement for a shampoo and conditioner. The first few times I used it I loved how my hair felt – shiny and silky smooth! However, I realized that after every few washes I need to wash my hair with a clarifying shampoo or else my hair starts to feel dull and heavy. Its been over five years since I first started using Wen cleansing conditioner and I have never stopped. It does get pricey with an average cost of $32 per 16 oz, but good hair days are worth it!

Though I’m generally satisfied with all the different formulas, after trying several of the scents I came to realize that some work better for my hair than others. I then visited Wen’s corporate website to find additional information regarding each formula, but wasn’t able to find anything. Then I stumbled upon Wen products while browsing qvc.com and found very helpful information regarding each formula. If you are considering trying Wen but need a little guidance with selecting which one is best for your specific hair type, the information below maybe useful.

Sahale Snacks Glazed Nuts Cashews with Pomegranate + Vanilla

Just the title makes my mouth watery – cashews, pomegranate, and vanilla are a few of my favorite flavors, and they are all packed in to one snack in this bag. When you open the bag, you find whole roasted cashews combined with pomegranate infused apples, and a hint of pure vanilla bean – The flavor profile is heavenly; nutty, sweet, and slightly salty.

I found this snack a few years ago at a movie theatre called Harkins in Chino Hills, Ca. Its not a common theatre chain here in Southern California, and they had a positively unique touch to their establishment along with the choices in their snacks. I was trying to avoid buying junk food and picked up a bag of the Sahale Snacks Glazed Nuts Cashews with Pomegranate + Vanilla. Since then, it has become a staple snack in my pantry. I have to fly quiet often for my work, and this is one of my favorite things to munch on without feeling overly guilty on long flights.

Sunny Seat Window Mounted Cat Bed

I adopted my cat, Cheeseburgers, in October of 2014 from the West End Shelter in Ontario, CA when he was about two months old. They are a no-kill facility, and were amazing to work with. The process was both thorough and efficient and the staff was professional and seemed to genuinely care about all the animals. According to the shelter, he is a pure Siamese cat. He is very affectionate, and loves to snuggle and purr. His temperament is very playful – sociable, vocal, playful and inquisitive. I constantly find myself looking for new toys and treats for him, and that’s why I found the Sunny Seat Window-Mounted Cat Bed.

I got it a couple of weeks ago, and it has become my cat’s favorite place to hang out. When I get home from work, I usually find it lounging on top of it. Here is a picture of Cheeseburgers relaxing on his Sunny Seat Cat Bed.

To ensure it works as described, make sure that the surface is very clean before you apply the suction cups so they adhere properly. When I was trying to decide where to hang the seat, I noticed that the suction cups don’t stick completely if there is any dust. My cat is fascinated by the refrigerator and loves to put his head in the freezer every time I open it. I tried sticking this seat on my stainless steel fridge to enhance the excitement in my cat’s life. However, the suction cups didn’t grasp tightly to the surface- so I decided to stick to the glass on my balcony window.

Though Cheeseburgers is still a kitten, he has already become quite a leaper – I stuck this pretty high on the glass and thought I would have to pick up my cat and manually place him on the seat, or stop being cheap and possibly buy another seat and place it lower as a step stool to the higher seat. However, my cat loves hanging out on this seat so much that he frequently puts his own life in danger and leaps to it and stays there for hours. I highly recommend this product as it definitely adds excitement to my Cheeseburger’s life who is too scared to ever go outside. By lounging on the seat, my cat can enjoy watching the world outside of my apartment.
