**REVIEW** iArrow Tempered Glass Screen Protector (Galaxy S5)

This is the screen protector by iArrow -

It's got some good qualities so less look at the ones I liked right off:
  • Clear as, well, glass. It really could be invisible to the glance.
  • Unlike some other protectors, it didn't hamper the touch screen capability at all
  • Comes packaged really nicely so that it doesn't get all bent up in transit.
  • The price (currently $10.99) is incredible for a quality protector.
  • Comes with a double guarantee (in case you are as slow as I am).
Okay. It's a pretty cool screen protector, and I could not get over how clear it was. Plus, it's such a reasonable price.  However, I have one issue with it too.

Although the protector is super duper clear, that's only in the places where it went on smoothly. Normally, with a protector, you get the kit that contains a fiber cleaning cloth, maybe some sticky dust-removing tabs, and that little card-thingy to smooth out all the bubbles. Somehow I was missing the cloth so I had to use one of my own - it was not that great. Apparently. I ended up with a couple of dust bubbles that, because they were near the edge, left my protector with a couple of loose corners. 

Back to the best about this: the clarity. I swear that the phone screen looked better (in the places where the protector adhered) than when the phone was unboxed. And, while I am extremely careful with my cell phones (no drops or spills for me!), I do tend to slide them into purses and tuck them into my bras and computer bags where the screen can get scratched up. This seems like it would do the trick. If it stayed on. Unfortunately, either because I am stupid (could be), or I needed a better cleaning cloth, I ended up removing this.

To summarize: I do think that I was somewhat at fault for mis-applying the product. If you want a screen protector that will also leave you with a clear and beautiful screen, this is a great product at a really good price. It sure beats those cheaply made, flimsy protectors that I've used in the past. I've seen horrible quality protectors at local drugstores that cost as much as $12.

If you are like me and could really love this, but have any problems with it, there is a "Double Guarantee" - which means iArrow will not only refund your purchase price but also send you a replacement screen protector. (I got mine in exchange for this review, so I don't really feel right asking for a replacement. #dangmyconscience)


P.S.: I had to update this with a note about the excellent follow-up customer service from the actual co-founder. He wanted to check on my satisfaction with the product. That's pretty cool, right? To me, the people behind a product says a whole lot about whatever that product is. I have to add a star for this kind of attention.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

**REVIEW** Africa's Best Hair Mayonnaise

My hair is pretty happy right now. Between the shampoo and conditioner that I am so in love with and this new leave-in, I feel as if I'm wearing someone else's hair. Someone else with soft, moisturized and nourished hair.

I'm a little bit ticked off. Here, I've been using all kinds of pricier potions, lotions, curl butters and creams and this four dollar and sixty-four cent product is sitting right there on the shelf. I had noticed it before but passed on trying it. I've tried other "hair mayos" and they just coated my hair with a greasy, messy slime that I couldn't wait to rinse out. Not this stuff.

I'm too freaking tired to try doing a selfie - plus the light is horrible right now - but, I'll try to describe what my hair feels like. It's soft and moist without being wet (get Prince off your brains!). I can touch my hair and not leave prints on paperwork. It's just a perfect leave-in follow-up for my new shampoo and conditioner duo. I…

The Devil Is A Liar!

That's a saying from the old folks in the church. You know, something gets on your nerves, or someone does something they ought to be ashamed of, and old Sister Hattie would proclaim, "The Devil is a liar!" ***

My mother, though, was one of those people who didn't believe in blaming everything on the Devil. She'd remind me when something didn't go the way I'd planned, the Devil had nothing to do with it. "That was you being hard-headed," she'd tell me. "Hard head makes a soft behind." Then I'd get a lecture about using more common sense when making important decisions. Once, when I got my first credit card, I bought some kind of expensive purse. Just had to have it. Couldn't live without it. It had cute initials on it and "everybody" who was "anybody" had one. Mama watched me loading all my stuff into the purse and said, "Got everything in there but money, don't ya?" About a month or two lat…

**REVIEW** Dr Miller Miracle Tea (part 2 of 3) *UPDATED

(Part One of this review is found here.)

Final Update (Hah!) *I have been granted a refund by Amazon. I think I have to print a shipping label for return, but I'm not sure because I got 2 separate emails from them. One said that my refund would be processed upon a scan of the return label, and the other indicated that they have already processed my refund. I will be checking with them for clarification. At any rate, it's cool to know that Amazon has a customer's back in cases like this. Thank you, Amazon!

Also, I have to mention that the Seller of the Miracle Tea also reached out to check on my satisfaction with the product. I'm waiting to hear further. I will upgrade my Amazon review by a star just because they at least are making an decent customer service effort.

So, I tried the tea yesterday for the first time and I'm not even going to continue with it. At least not on the 3-day schedule I initially intended.

Like I mention…
