My experience using #sleevestars (review)

Hello to everyone reading this, I wanted to give my honest review on SleeveStars’ knee sleeve.

A little back story to finding sleeve stars is that I was in search of a new sleeve or brace. Having fibromyalgia causes a wave of various pains, from my hands, back, all the way down to my knees. Within the past few years I have noticed an increase pain in doing simple tasks like going to the store, washing dishes, etc. and my new arch nemesis the stairs.

As anyone who may have daily pains can relate to is finding the best treatment for the time being. Sometimes pain pills can be drowsing, creams can be too oily or smelly.

Having a simple sleeve or brace can be ideal for a simple work out or any task that requires a good amount of exercise.

In the past few days of having the S.S sleeve here are a few things that I discovered.

Shipping

When ordering from Amazon the sleeve was only 10 bucks,I received my #sleevestars sleeve (say that five times fast.) within two days.( free 2day shipping with prime.)

Unboxing

When opening the box sleeve stars (SS) comes with a 12 month warranty. (Which is pretty cool) and of course the sleeve itself.

The sleeve

The sleeve is made of 68% nylon and 32% spandex .

The sleeve comes in sizes from small(14.5″-17″), medium(17″-19.5″) and large(19.5-22″)

Straight out the box S.S Promises 4 things(as seen in the picture above) let’s see if they check out!

Quality✔

When taking the sleeve outside the plastic pack, I was surprised that the sleeve felt great! Most sleeves are rough feeling, when trying on the sleeve for the first time the sleeve was easy to slide on and had a firm grip. Which was also a plus! I didn’t feel any discomfort the whole time I wore the sleeve throughout the day.

Pain relief ✔

As I mentioned before, the stairs aren’t my best friend. Going up and down the stairs can be tiring and a big toll on my knees.(especially if you leave something up or down the stairs.) *activates homer*

The first day I wore S.S for about 8 hours. Going up and down the stairs didn’t feel painful , standing didn’t seem as tough. Throughout the day the sleeve didn’t slip, even at times when I sprinted up the stairs. (Yes sprinted!)

feeling confident and energetic that day of cleaning was a breeze! Sweeping,mopping, and an occasional dance or two..the sleeve stayed in place and I never felt sweaty or as if the sleeve would fall off.

(To anyone curious as to the size I ordered a large)

Final notice

When buying things at affordable prices, we tend to feel that there’s always a “catch” or something we’ll have to compromise in the name of saving money, not with #sleevestars.

I would recommend this sleeve to anyone that may be in search of one!

#sleevestars checks every box! Hope you enjoyed this review! In case you missed it, to buy a sleeve like this click here.

Creatively constipated.

By the title you can kinda guess what this post will be about… Or maybe not. 

I have writer’s block. Or in better words,

creatively constipated. 

Let’s define constipated. (Via Google)

  con·sti·pat·ed

ˈkänstəˌpādəd/

adjective

  1. (of a person or animal) affected with constipation.

    • slow-moving; restricted or inhibited in some way.

    • My creative flow has come a halt. I haven’t the slightest Idea as to how I’ve became so.. Backed up. Maybe it’s stress, maybe I haven’t been inspired?

    • Sometimes like a bad cramp , you just have to walk it off. So maybe it’s time that I work out this cramp. Today.✋😑⬅️ serious face I vow to write.. even when I feel I have nothing to write about. #writersblockchallenge

    • 👆 write down. Five random things to have a theme and write about it in some way. 

    • You don’t have to post it, but just getting the pencil, pen, keyboard going is a start. I will try my best to do this for at least 2 weeks. It takes 2 weeks to start our break a habit . Until next time!!! #comment #letstalk what do you do when you have writer’s block? 

How to look good and spread awareness while doing it pt✌️

Hello , this is the other half of my blog post from my #addtocart series. ( You can read part ☝️ here 👈 week I’m talking about making a difference in style with the two companies 

The second company is called wildiN clothing co. 

This company’s focus is on helping preserving the lives of in dangered species. Not just by spreading awareness but also taking action in how they produce their products. With any product that you buy from them, you can be assured that no animal was harmed.  Another cool thing about the company is spreading awareness for beauty, not just in animals, but in the people who model their clothes.

Finally, we do not believe in the standards placed on the fashion and retail industry. We promise our models are diverse and our photos unaltered. We invest in quality photographers that create beautiful images of real unedited people. ” -wildiN clothing co.

  The company also donates 10% of their net profits to the animals it represents. (Red wolves, tigers, etc) One of the company’s lines in particular, is the polar bear line , which donates to organizations such as polar bears international.

The items range from clothes for men and women and other accessories. Like candles and themed bath soaps.

Today they are having a daily deal going on for both men and women tanks for $18!

(As seen below)

They have pretty affordable things I might add as well the cheapest item is a polar bear sticker that is less than two dollars.

If you want to catch deals like this or even chop off a few extra dollars (use this code ALEXUSLAFAYETTE15

Whether you decide to buy anything or not. Remember it’s all about raising awareness! Thank you for taking the time to read this far. Until next time!

My webtoon review/ favorites!

     In case you don’t know about webtoon. Webtoon is an app they provides thousands of original comic book content, from comedy, action ,to romance. It’s easy to sign up. (Although you don’t have to unless you want to subscribe to a comic or want to download a chapter offline.)Being subscribed  also gives you a notification when the next chapter is available. Unless you get lucky and find a series that’s been out for awhile. Which brings me to my top picks on webtoon.

Undeaded is a funny comic about a guy, who recently discovered that he’s dead. He tries figuring out how to live again.. along the way he finds a few friends to tag along with his journey.

 apocalyptic horseplay   Made by the same creator of the undeadEd comes a different story just as funny and with a few cameos from the undead Ed cast. The comic is about the famous four horsemen. The horseman decide to retire and spread positivity to the world instead of chaos. 

In doing so, a young journalist  grows suspicious and decides to investigate the source causing trouble for the horseman to stay hidden.

assassin’s roomate is a quirky / comedy romance novel about  two college kids moving in together. While agreeing to strictly be just roommates , the two students find out that they actually have alot in common…

 these are my current findings! If you are into webtoon, tell me what you think of these comics and if you have a few faves of your own, feel free to comment them. #like #share #comment ps: all pictures are from webtoon.

Why empire’s first episode was everything.

Hello! I’m trying something new and I’m going to write my review and prediction on #empire as many fans know, tonight was empire’s season premiere. Because this is a fresh episode, I will not give away any spoilers. So this will probably be a short post. 

 However, I just wanted to say that this episode sets the tone for the season of what’s yet to come. I’m so excited for this season! I will say this. The episode is different than anything we’ve seen thus far from our lion family. I predict a lot of changes throughout the season. To be more specific ,I believe empire is heading in a darker direction. Mark my words! 😁

However where there is darkness, there’s sure to be light. Although the season is aimed at a certain angle, I’m sure love will conquer that darkness.

One thing I will mention is Lucius… And cookie . As I’m sure if you have kept up with the show until now, then you know that an accident happened that caused Lucius to lose his memory. This seems to be one of the core things we’ll see the family deal with. I don’t want to give away anything so ill save my comments for next week. . Oh and I definitely think we’ll see more of momma dubis played by (phylica Rashad) 

I’ll leave a question however for you to think about. If you were cookie what would you do? #comment #share #like
 

Bringing your movie and TV show fantasy foods to life.

Have you ever watched your favorite movie or TV show and wondered “hmm🤔🤔🤔 if only I could try that meal in real life?” Have no fear, your binging prayers have been answered!! 

Yesterday I was scrolling on YouTube and I went into the phase of binge watching cooking shows, when I stubbled upon a channel called “Binging with babish“.

The channel features a few bite sized videos of some of the most memorable dishes from some of our favorite movies and current shows. Such as the classic Matilda down to the most popular shows of today like  Rick and MortyThe Game of thrones,etc. 

Watching the channel to me has the vibe of myth busters meets food Network.  I enjoy babish’s dry sense of humor w/ a dash of references from the show or movie that the dish of the day is themed behind.In a days time, this YouTube channel has become one of my favorite channels to binge.

  If you’re looking for a channel that brings your tv food goals to life he’s your guy. What’s a dish from your favorite TV show or movie that you want to try?  Feel free to comment below.

Here’s a few of my favorites from the channel.

the Krabby patty from SpongeBob

the fried Chicken lasagna & The Luther Burger (the boondocks)

homer Simpsons “moon waffles”

W👁️tch and chat

Hello everyone! I was casually scanning videos to watch, when I came across a buzzfeed video. The 7 min video was an experiment, which BuzzFeed is well known for. It featured a Satanist and Christian and the challenge was for 24 hours the  two had to be handcuffed to each other. Despite the cringe worthy title, I enjoyed seeing them together.  If you take the time to watch , what did you think about the pair? #watchandchat

The six year old you would be proud.

Lately, my anxiety has been getting the best of me. It’s caused me to back out of ideas and projects that I’ve been wanting to persue. One being Designs. While I’m not the best artist, I thought it would be pretty cool to have my ideas come to life. Having people like my items to the point of which they may want to buy it seemed pretty cool too.
 So I started with looking up the best sites to promote my “works” .I created 4 different accounts. They each had features that I loved. I started watching videos on how to make my drawings look better. Downloaded software the whole nine yards. There was a point when the software became a little overwhelming. I started thinking ,maybe I’ll never be as good as the other artists. My work will never sale.

     In reality things like that can happen. Maybe I’ll never make a sale. I decided to shut down my sites. In that same week , I went onto my snap chat. (Which I haven’t been on in several weeks) to see a video of one of my favorite artists,  Kehlani. She talked about her inner kid. How her 6 year old self would’ve been proud and excited about all of her success, both big and small. She exclaimed that we needed to be our own cheerleaders. 

 So often we measure our worth by the success of others. That we forget everyone has their own process, everyone has their own path to take in order to be the person they are meant to be. Through trial and error we learn about ourselves and what works best for us. Seeing that Snapchat brought me to tears. I felt as if she was talking directly to me. 

It was a special moment not because of the messenger, but the message. And in reading this ,I hope to relay the same message. You can be. Anything you put your mind to. It’s ok to be afraid of the unknown. It’s ok to be unsure of what or whom you’re meant to be. The biggest and best thing you can do for yourself is try, and have fun doing the things you love because they make you happy. Even if you fail at something, at least you tried. In writing this I’m planning on doing more research to open back up my online shops. It may be frustrating at times but I know it’ll all be worth it.  I’m becoming my own biggest fan. You should too. 
If you read this blog thank you so much for taking the time to do so. Until next time!
