Laurita Always Officially Have A Domain!!

Disclaimer: There is no affiliate links, no sponsors supporting this post, nor anything given to me for free. The domain is purchased out of my pocket! Thank you!
Hello everyone!! I have exciting news for you all!! As you can see above in the picture, I finally have a domain for my blog, Laurita Always! Ahhh!!! I can't believe it!! It's been a year since I had this blog. It's amazing to see it finally growing bit by bit. I love it! Now, I'm thinking to revamp my blog's layout and look. I'm trying to grow out of my little box so does anyone have any suggestion on where to go for a premade blogger templates?! If you do, could you please comment down below! Thank you for your suggestions! As I bet you all wondering which domain server I went to, I actually only trust GoDaddy.com for good prices and how long it'll keep the domain. So I went to GoDaddy.com and enter the domain I wanted which was lauritaalways.com. Fortunately, it was available! I went on to pick and choose on what things I want to add to my domain purchase. In the end, it only cost $13.17!! Not too bad for a year subscription! After my purchase, I immediately went on to my blogger and add to my main blog URL. At first, I was clueless on how to switch the blog URLs so I googled it. Haha! I found a tutorial on Google Blogger and I did step by step to successfully add my domain to my blog. It was pretty easy once you get the hang of it! Once the domain successfully entered as my blog URL, I went on ahead to check it out! It was an exciting feeling when you see your blog was growing in front of you! I loveee it! Now, I have changed my blog information all over my social medias and networks. I'm so excited to see if companies that I wanted to work with would finally accept me and my blog now that I have a domain! Well, I don't know what else to say except thank you for those who are following me on Bloglovin' and elsewhere, I can't believe the numbers are rising little by little. It's crazy! So thank you so much for reading and supporting my little blog! Haha! I'm so blessed to be at this point right now. Thank you all! Alright then, I think that is all I have to say right now. Please follow my blog by email, bloglovin', GFC, or anywhere you'd like to use and keep on reading! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you next time!! BYE!!

Walker's Game Ear, UltraEar ITC Review

Disclaimer: I bought Walker's Game Ear (pair) with my own money and no way is affiliated with the brands mentioned in this post. All opinions are 100% mine. 
Hello everyone!! Welcome back to my blog! I know I haven't been on here for awhile! The reason is I am finally back in school!! Yay! I know, it's been awhile since I had proper education! Haha! I am currently going to Wilkes Community College which is here in my city. I'm striving to be a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) and it is a eight weeks course. I'm almost done with second week and I'm excited! Alright! Enough of that, I will talk about that more in my next post! Til then, let's get started on the review! 

Once I was in the CNA course, I knew I needed to find a way to help myself to hear of what's going on around me in college. Therefore, I immediately went to Amazon and scoured across the website to look for an alternative choice to prescription hearing aids. Everyone in the Deaf world know that hearing aids are pretty expensive, even with health insurances. So I didn't bother because, 1) I don't the money for all the expenses for a single hearing aid, 2) I don't have a health insurance, 3) even if I do have the money and health insurance, I wouldn't find the time to plan for appointments and whatnot. I know, I suck. Haha. All I had was a $40 Amazon gift card and a weak gut feeling. Back on Amazon, I found plenty of hearing aids or sometimes called hearing amplifiers. They all didn't have a strong 5 stars ratings but some had at least 3 stars. I came across this product, Walker's Game Ear, a pair of hearing amplifiers. It cost $21.75. Not bad for a pair of hearing amplifiers. It wasn't specifically for personal use but it was the only product that was in my price range. I thought heck why not! I needed something to be able to help me hear so badly! Within a week, I received it from a mailman and I was so ecstatic. I truly was. It has been two years since I last wore a hearing aid!!! Long time, no wear. Seriously... Haha. So down below are actual pictures of what I received in the box! 
In the box, I had a pair of hearing aids, two extra pairs of earplugs, a small bag, and a pack of batteries. I wish I could show you all of how it looks like once it is tuck in my ear. In fact, I had a video of a collective haul and this product was included. I even showed it of how it looked in my ear. So scroll down to the bottom and check it out! Thanks! 

Anyway, let's get real serious about this product. this pair of hearing amplifiers are pretty basic. The size of a single amplifier is compare to a nickel. Small and almost invisible in your ear. It had a volume button, where you had to use your pinky because it is so small to amp the sound. The volume isn't too loud enough to my liking. Also, it has an on/off button. Again, it's simple. O means off. I means on. It has another feature and it is where you can pitch the whistles higher or lower. Mmm.. It's not exactly a great pair of hearing aids but it's bleh okay-ish. It falls out when you eat or simply opening your mouth, it will eventually wiggles out of your ear canal. No matter how well you tuck in the hearing aids or size of the earplugs, that too will fall out! How annoying is that! Not only that bothers me, but it doesn't even help hear others who talk well or near me! It is not loud or clear enough. Sometimes, it even distorts a person's voice when they are sitting next to me talking. It's like my hearing is my tv. This pair of hearing aids only went up to 2 of the 7 bars of volume. It is just not good as a pair of prescription hearing aids. So what I'm trying to say, don't bother to buy this product! It's not worth your money nor time! I know it wasn't for me. The hunt for a good hearing aids still goes on for me and don't worry, I will find one sooner or later. Well, since the hearing aids weren't so big of a help, I eventually stopped wearing them. I am doing okay in the CNA course, I'm passing and that is all that matters, right? The only thing I hate about this course really is the sphygmomanometer. Now that is truly a pain in the butt...and my head. Haha. 

Alright, that is it for my review on Walker's Game Ear hearing aids. I hope this help a few of you that are looking for a hearing aid on Amazon. Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you next time!! Bye!!

Kiss InstaWave Review & Get Ready With Me: Thanksgiving Edition!

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Brandbacker but all of my opinions are 100% my own. 



Hi! Welcome back to my blog! I have a new review and it is on Kiss InstaWave curler! I received this product for a review but don't worry, I always give my honest feedback on everything! Let's get started!


Kiss InstaWave

Retail Price: $59.99

The description on the product: The revolutionary KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with ease (No Need to be a Pro).

The product have:
  • Diamond-Ceramic Technology
    • Infusion of diamond and ceramic particles enhanced durability while maintaining ionic effects for healthy, shiny styling results.
  • Ceramic Ionic Technology
    • Gentle for infrared heat and negative ions to reduce frizz and damage.
  • 420° Max temperature 
    • Professional grade temperature locks in curls. 
  • Auto Shutoff
    • Automatically shuts off after 90 minutes.
  • Tangle-Free
    • Specially designed Curl Dial prevents from tangling of hair. 
Directions of how to use the product: Simply place a section of hair on InstaWave and leave the rest of the curling to the curl dial.. Push the button to direct which way you'd like to go and hold for 10 seconds or less. As you finish, pull InstaWave down to release the beautiful curl.   
See the video down below to see it in action! 

My thoughts: Well, I can tell you this, InstaWave can be a really nice gift for any girl with short hair! For me, having long hair can't fit all of a section of hair on the short barrel. Which sucks because it is a really nice curler! Not only that, if I had any longer hair than I have right now, it would not be able to curl all of it before it shuts off from 90 minutes timing. Although, that is a nice touch to automatically shut off unlike with other curling devices! It is easy for anyone to use, from any angle and with any hand. One have to be careful though. It has two heat settings with a low and high switch. The maximum temperature is up to 420 degrees! Yikes!!! So again, it's a great gift to any girl who loves to fix up her hair but I highly suggest giving to someone who have a good experience dealing with hot curling products. I like the fact this product is simple with the buttons! You can push left to right directions to curl your hair without to use more than one finger. Also, the curl dial on Instawave is really nice. It grabs your section of hair without tangles! Just to make sure, you keep the rest of the hair away from the curl dial! Haha! It'll be a mess if you're not too careful! So, I used Instawave to get ready with me for Thanksgiving. Here is my video down below! Hope you love my look! Haha! 


Overall, InstaWave is pretty nice curler. It's good for use on all hair lengths and types! It is easy to use and it makes a good gift to any girl! You don't even need to wrap this gift up because it's already fancy as it is! Haha! 

You can find Kiss InstaWave on http://www.KISSInstaWave.com and it is also available in Target, Ulta, and Amazon.com! For the Canadians, you can find InstaWave in Walmart as well! 

Okay, that is it for my review on InstaWave! I hope you enjoy it and find this informative! Thank you so much for reading and I will see y'all next time! Bye!
