TorchStar Dimmable LED Recessed Lighting Fixture - Review

We recently tried a new recessed light fixture by the company TorchStar. Boy did we hit gold. This light rocks and it's the best light I've ever had in my kitchen. I will definitely be putting these in other places besides my kitchen. Let's get right down to the low down on these lights. 

I purchased one single light initially to try it, I quickly bought a pack of 4 after that to finish out my kitchen. I do not use the dimmable option, but it is there.

Energy Efficient: save up to 87% in electricity from your lights.
Long Lifespan: up to 32 years or 35,000 hours (based on 3 hours a day usage). When I'm 74 I'll stop back and give ya an update to confirm this.
Design: the design of this light makes for a little wiggle room between 5" and 6" recessed lighting housings. 
Easy to Install: this literally took 30 seconds to install. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. It's a Plug n Play type. Comes with standard E26/E27 screw base adapter, EZ connector, directly fit into light socket in housing.


Looks nice huh?


This is sooooooooooooooo nice in the kitchen now. Love Love LOVE how bright they are. 

Jeez, someone should have put those dishes away and made those muffins before photographing.

Aside from being fantastically bright, my other most favorite feature is they are an instant on. So no waiting for lights to 'warm up'. I have no patience for that. 

Here's a little video to show you just how easy they are to install. Starring Husband as the Install Guy.

What awesomely bright lights do you use? Have you ever tried TorchStar?

Frankincense Essential Oil (BioFinest) - Review

I never realized how beneficial and useful and versatile Frankincense was until recently. It's like the King of Oils. I chose BioFinest because it's pure and organic. No added-anything, and they are a well trusted brand. And I'm finding their oil is of top notch quality. 


I don't describe scents well but I do like it. I've been using it in my Witch Hazel for an astringent, I put a few drops in my Rosehip Oil for a moisturizer on my face. Been using a drop on my toothbrush when brushing my teeth.  I am currently trying it on a few dark spots I have, but will need more time to fully report on that. I've been diffusing it and putting it on my feet at night for a more relaxed restful feel. The one I can tell a difference most right now is putting it on my calf's and feet after a run. And I'm still learning about all the things I can use it for, but I'm believing the saying 'when in doubt, use Frankincense'. I am literally blown away at how many uses their are for this one.

I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion.

One thing to mention, I signed up for the BioFinest VIP Club and received an A-Z Essential Oil Guide for Essential Oils. I'm sort of new to oils, been using the very basics for a couple of years. But I've got a lot to learn about each one. This e-book is fantastic. It's amazing for a beginner but I'm sure useful for a novice too. It's laid out perfectly and each oil has a few sections for uses and how to use them. It's just easy to read, easy to find what you are looking for, and it's just awesome and so very helpful. I'm definitely adding BioFinest and their products to my list of favorites

Do you use Frankincense? Any tips you have for me, please comment!

Gel Polish Remover Clips - Review

Well hello there strangers !!!  Did you miss me? Wait, don't answer that. I've been on a 2 month hiatus to focus on moving and an incredibly busy summer. I'll do a summer recap post soon to catch you up. But first, a quick review on a great product. 

If you don't have gel polish nails or anything alike, you can just skip this whole post. If you do, then you must try these. You MUST.

Don't get me wrong, the foil method worked just fine and dandy for this gal. I had no intentions of changing my ways.

But then I spied these and just had to give them a try.

Ten come in a pack. So unless you've chopped a finger off, it should work out clip to finger ratio.

You pinch em just like a clothes pin and clip over top of the acetone dipped cotton ball.

It was very easy to do, even with my less dominant hand.

One full cotton ball was a little thick in there, so I split the cotton ball in 2 and it was perfect size to fit and cover my nail.

No hassle at all. Just pinch and clip. These also hold it in place well, they are snug but not too tight that it rings the acetone out.

It also puts a little pressure on your nail, thus lessening the time it took to soak off my gel polish. Score !!!

I really love these nail clips and highly recommend giving them a try.
