Charge your iPad or iPhone while you relax with it using a 6 Foot Apple certified charging cord

I recently received an Apple certified 6 foot cord to review from Accessorize Your Life.


This cord is thicker than the cord that you get with Apple devices. It charges so fast.

My toddler loves the iPad. He has learned a lot from the apps but we still do story time or wind down at bedtime with the ipad. Sometimes the battery is very low and we have to plug it in and sit on edge of bed. It makes for a very uncomfortable relaxation / story time. This has made our lives so much better. It’s 6 FEET! What! We can lay in bed all cozy and have it plugged in if need be.

The cord itself is durable. Where the prong meets the cord, it seems sturdy and that is good with a toddler always tugging at cord. We’ve been through 3 different cords this year so far. We are hoping this one survives since it’s well made.

It does not come with a block, so make sure you have one.

This is only $15.99 and free shipping for the 6 foot cord here.  If you don’t need the longer cord, they have a 3 foot cord for $10.99 here.

UPDATE:  Mine stopped working near the part that plugs into the phone.  I contacted the company and they DID replace it and shipped me another one FREE of charge. They DO uphold their policy!

InstaNatural Cleansing Facial Oil and Makeup Remover in One – Review

Today I received a 4 ounce bottle of Deep Cleansing Facial Oil and Makeup Remover by InstaNatural to review.  It says it is a Skin & Pore Purifier, Gentle and Reviving!  As of this post, it retails for $19.99.  They give a 100% money back guarantee on it too!

I was taken aback by this product. I thought for sure my face would become oily after using it. I was wrong. I was surprised like many before me who have reviewed this facial oil. It not only cleans your face with a nice smooth touch but makes it softer. Yes, it does feel like oil on your face when you’re cleaning it, but it will wash off and not remain. I used a sponge to clean my face and the facial oil cleanser washed out of the sponge too.  It is like a yellow tint to it and smells like a citrus field.  Not quite orange, but close to that range, so it is very pleasant!

I removed some eyeliner with this too. Works and it’s easy to put some on a cotton ball and throw away, rather than trying to scrub it off with a washcloth, then you have to put the washcloth in the washer with eyeliner on it. It’s like Cat in the Hat. This eliminates that.


I love the ingredients! Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Essential Oils, Hemp Oil, Tamanu Oil, and Sea Buckthorn Oil. I love that they are organic. Thank you for sending me this to review for my honest opinion. I love this stuff!!!!
