Product Review: Coleman Road Trip Beach Shade

*In Grover's voice " Hello Everybody"!!

This post is a product review. Last Month, we went to the Salt Creek beach in Dana Point, Ca. The weather was really cold in March and looking at the forecast...I knew I would want to take a tent with me. So I went to Amazon.com and looked for beach tents. I looked high and low for great reviews. At the end, I decided to choose the Coleman Road Trip Beach Shade. I like the color, the design and the rave reviews. Of course with all great reviews, there are negative ones as well. The Negative reviews are mostly petty complaints from idiots who are lazy or incompetent.
  • Someone gave up putting up this tent because it took them longer than 30 minutes to put up. It took me 10 minutes. Read the instructions! They are EASY and STRAIGHT FORWARD. You must be a one lazy bastard if you think 10 minutes to set up a tent is too long to set up.
  • Someone said it ripped because they forced the rods in the mesh lining...well no shit Sherlock...metal rods verses mesh...99.999 percent  of the times, it will get caught and tear if you force it through. It would be better if it was made with a solid material lining but I think to Achieve the design of the tent, it needed to be a mesh lining so the METAL rods can bend comfortably. Its not rocket science why things are what it is.
  • Material is thin. Yes, it is. BUT it is light weight and compact. 
  •  The tent does want to blow away if you don't put the stakes and sand bags in....but that's why they put/include those materials with the tent. 

My own 2 cents that you should know about this tent:
  • It fit my family of four comfortably, when we closed ourselves in from the wind. My husband is 6'1" and he laid on the longest side. 
  • Its around $40. It is worth it.

Friday Frenzy: I Hate Terms of Endearments



Hi Everyone!

Frenzy...what does that mean to me today. A state of violent mental agitation. Yeah, literally...not really. But you get the point.

Okay, Listen up my beauties. I have something to let you know. Every time someone calls me dear, sweetie or hun, First I say to myself. "What the F**k". THEN I imagine me throwing them off an imaginary cliff to feel better. If you do this, its not your fault. It's something I can not control to think. Just like you can't control about thinking about sexual thoughts every day. Don't lie, you do. Calling me a liar? Bull shit. You just thought about it right now. lol. 

It's just a big pet peeve of mine. If you are not my mom or grandparents or older relative...do not do it. Waitresses and Beauticians does this a lot. I want to stab them with a fork or burn them with their curling iron. 

How did this trend start anyway?

Today's society think giving people pet names / terms of endearment is cute. Many of my online friends do this...fine. You can do it, but not to me! I beg of you. I think its disrespectful and annoying. Especially if you are younger than the person. I know its meant to be no harm. but it bothers me a lot.  You think this is a little extreme and immature to say out loud? Well, you can think that way...maybe this is a pet peeve of yours. 

If you don't know the persons name and age, call them Ma'am. Calling someone Ma'am or Sir is out of respect. The only thing I would love to live in the south east. I really hate it when it doesn't suit them...they do it, because everyone else is doing it. Stop it. I am not a child and clearly you do not know me enough to call me a "sweetie". Trust. I am all kinds of crazy in la cabeza. Maybe I'm a sweetie because I don't act on the things I think about. BUT dont.

People that are okay to use terms of endearment to you.

Your Parents
Your Grandparents
Your Aunt
Your Uncle

People that are okay to use terms of endearment to people who is not related to you.

Your Elementary and Middle School Teacher.
And
Marge, the 50 something year old diner lady at a truck stop that smokes 12 pack of cigarettes a day.

HAHA. Its Friday. Tell me what bugs you sometimes or always. I know I'm not alone in this. 

Until Next time, Stay healthy and Fabulous.

Wet Seal Haul

Hi Friends, Hi!!

I love Wet Seal's style but their quality of products....SUCKS!! I don't know why I keep buying from them. Well, I can tell you one reason. Price. But in reality, you get what you pay for. I'm a sucker for deals but I had enough of being played by their website. The pictures of their products are so deceiving. It is definitely not what you get at all. I would pay a little bit more if they actually had good quality made products.

Some of you are asking...Why is a 30 something year old housewife shopping at Wet Seal anyways? Well bitches...haha...because I can! Because I can pull off the young look when I want to, and plus have you seen what the average housewives wear? Oh dear, not for this girl. Well, I know I am above average housewife so I shouldn't put myself in lesser category that. I'm really young at heart and I dress how I feel. It's not like I wear scandalous hoochie-fied clothes. Well maybe some booty shorts here and there...but I know my limits. haha. And did I mention, the prices are too good to pass up.

Well, here is my last haul from Wet Seal. The picture captions will tell you what i would recommend or would totally avoid! Thanks for coming back and hope you learn from my mistakes.

Package arrived by a white Plastic Wrap bag....this is what you pull out.
When Clear Plastic is open.
Part of my invoice
Accessories:  So the main reason for this haul was to get accessories. Spring trend is mint and peach/Coral.  I received an email from Wet Seal and what I saw caught my eye. I practically bought everything that had to do with mint.

Looks cheap, but still cute in person. If you change up your phone on the daily...should get this too:).
Price should be lower tho.
Packaging.

Good weight and style:) BUT.....
It's all about the details...Major FAIL!
Website pictures made these babies look tiny...but it practically covers my whole ear....but cute none the less.
If you have sensitive ears like me (ears turn green or easily get infected) put a coat of clear nail polish on the ear prong. It only lasts a 8 hours but beauty is pain.
 
Love these two necklaces. although they looked really nice online...I wasn't quite sure about them in person at first.

Wearing them was nice. The kids like to dress up in them. They are cheap enough that the kids can ruin them without me freaking out. I would buy these again. I would say, they may discolor a lot quicker than usual.

CLOTHING

Size Small...Great fit on top, but it easily rolls up to your chest. Continuously have to unroll them down.I bought 5 pairs. 2 black and 3 white. I hate when my stomach show when I raise my hands up...quite embarrassing. so I try to cover it with a cami. These are THE WRONG camis to do so. They are more a nuisance  than helpful.
Although Quality is not good (couple washes and its looks like a rag) its a nice fit.

 Okay, Here is the one thing you should know. Never Ever buy bralettes from any store unless you tried it out first. Its a no brainer but I got professionally measured and these still didn't fit because it was stuffed and molded to fit a perky barbie doll that has cones for boobs. Very unsatisfied with this bralette. The fabric, the built and zipper is all wrong. This is worth less an a dollar. Buyers Beware!!
I obviously bought these to wear under a big comfy sweaters and match my accessories.
The elasticity of the straps are so weak. It would be over stretched in one wear.
Waste of 30- ish bucks because I bought two.
Zip-page and stitching is horrid.
Love the concept of the fit (highrise for muffin top coverage) but the fabric feels like if you wash it, it will smell like smoke and flammable. It also feels like sand paper.

SWIM : I am not blessed anymore to wear a bikini due to severe stretch mark due to having kids...so I have been searching high and low for a all black monokini with bust support. Well its a impossible task. So I gave up for now and just bought a monokini. I plan to wear a separate bikini top under the monokini for bust support.
Packaging.
Like all Monokinis the bottoms fit but the bust for busty girls like me...FAIL. it wouldn't even cover my nipples...lol.
String to hang the monokini. I think its in store purposes because this is harder to tuck than a tampon string...unless you want to hang yourself with it and make it a choker.



The last thing that is not pictured individually but is my all time favorite Wet Seal find is my favorite Mixed Polka Dot scarf. It is so soft and elegant and fun. IF all their scarves are the same quality as this scarf, I would buy scarves again from Wet Seal.

So all in all, my love hate relationship with Wet Seal is still a toss up if I love or hate it. But I know something for sure. I will not buy from online. Even though shopping in the store give you less of selections.

Well hope you got something out of this post...if not...at least you know what to avoid from online shopping.

Until Next time, Stay Healthy and Fabulous!!

Spring Break: Legoland Day 2

Hi Everyone!

Took a week break because I had other things to do. I started my own business making residual income with Kyani.net. I will write about my experience with Kyani later on in another post. You can go check out the website; www.keenalee.kyani.net and www.kyaniscience.com.

So this post is about Day 2 of Legoland. Out outfit theme for this day was Panda and Coral/Peach. I wasn't going to obsess about being matchy matchy but its how it ended up with us. :).

First time she sat still for me to do her hair like this and stay like this all day!
Cheese

Mama Bear and her cubs

Here we go again!
On Day 2 we went to the area of the park where we didnt go on Day 1.

This Face!


Panda Pride!

First Ride of the Day
Peek A Boo!
Legoland Water Park : The day we went, it was too cold for me to even step on a puddle with my bare feet. Aubree is 2 yrs old, we didnt have to pay for her entrance fee to Legoland. But if she wants to go to the water park, its a 3 dollar fee to get in...even if you had no desire to play in it...just to look around. So me and Quinn just stood at the very entrance of the water park and did a 180 degree scan and left...lol.









Legoland Aquarium: We also went to the Aquarium that is located on the left side entrance of Legoland. It was a 45 minute walk around. We came, we saw and it was pretty cute.












































Overall, the 2nd day was pleasant because I had my family. Again, I would not personally would want to go back again. Just because I was all smiles doesn't mean I was into it. Kids are like monkeys. Monkey sees, monkey do. I am the mother of my lil monkeys and I had to be enthusiastic so my kids will follow my lead. If i truly act the way i feel inside, obviously the kids are not gonna be into it too. Its kinda weird referring my kids to monkeys but hey you get the idea.

Anyways. I am going to post another post soon. Wet Seal. Until next time, stay healthy and Fabuloous!!
