EZ Buy Direct, find your case online for less. Review & Giveaway

If you have a teenager with a smartphone or tablet in the house, then you already know all about the selfie! Kids will twist and turn and reach in all kinds of directions to get the photo opp. Putting their phones at risk to be dropped.


While owning tech toys like smartphones and tablets is fun for kids, it can be of importance for us as parents. Like having the freedom to connect with our teens at anytime. But, we all know these items don’t come cheap! So, protecting them with a case, is a must in our house.

We recently received the below Soft White Case for our daughter’s iPhone 5C to review. It might not look like much, but the TPU material keeps the phone protected from scratches, and helps her keep a firm grip at any angle, like during selfies, or quick photos on the go.


The snug fit prevents dirt and dust from getting inside the case. Side openings and bumper buttons lets her lock and unlock the phone, plug in and listen to music, charge or use a dock without having to remove the case. Unlike our experience with a much expensive case. It had to be removed every time she wanted to use her dock.


Our daughter has been using this case for over two weeks and has no complaints. When asked, she referred to it as perfect, and just the case she had wanted.

Are you putting your device at risk by not using a case? This could change! The generous people at EZ Buys Direct would like to send one Five Dollar Shake reader the phone or tablet case of their choice.

New pop-arazzi Cosmetic Brush Line from CVS Review & Giveaway

I’m excited to share the launch of a brand NEW budget-friendly cosmetic brush line called pop-arazzi, now available exclusively (and conveniently) at CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide and online at CVS.com.

It’s been my experience that those tiny applicators that come with make-up often don’t last the life of the product. Refusing to throw-away any useable make-up, because you know it’s not cheap, I’ve resulted in using a Q-tip or even my finger to apply eye shadow. Only to have it crumble and create a mess. Wasted product, is wasted money.


Purchasing a cosmetic brush set is something I’ve meaning to do for a while. Thanks to CVS – I now have one. I recently received these colorful fun brushes to review. Now I can use every last bit of my make-up. No more mess, no more wasting money.


I’ve been using this full set of brushes for a couple of weeks. My make-up has never looked better. The brushes feel great on my skin. They do a nice job at helping me apply make-up evenly and smoothly every day. I’m not sure how I ever got by without them.

This affordable cosmetic brush collection ($1.99-$5.99) offers a burst of color and comes in range of application-friendly designs, including:

  • Powder Brush – $2.99
  • Foundation Brush – $2.99
  • Concealer Brush – $1.99
  • Eye Shadow Brush – $2.99
  • Brow and Lash Brush – $1.99
  • Eyeliner Brush – $1.99
  • Eye Crease Blender Brush – $1.99

There is even a complete 5-Piece Brush Set, that includes Powder, Eyeliner, Eye Shadow, Eye Smudge, and Brow & Lash Brushes for only $5.99 !

Available now at CVS!

New! Milk-Bone Brushing Chews Review & Digital Coupon

I recently received this nice package of New Milk-Bone Brushing Chews for my Foxy Roxy to review.


Roxy knew before I even opened the box that there was something tasty inside for her. She knows the brand Milk-Bones when she hears it.


What she doesn’t know is that these new Milk-Bone Brushing chews are a new dog treat to help create a daily dental care regimen. They’re clinically proven as effective as brushing – the nubs and ridges are designed to clean like bristles on a toothbrush, and they even get the hard to reach back teeth and down to the gum line.


Knowing that Roxy will do ANYTHING to have us NOT brush her teeth, including running, hiding and pulling away with all of her weight, these have been a real blessing.

She loved them. Roxy gets so happy when I say it’s time for your night time treat and pull out a Milk-Bone Brushing Chew.

While these chews look, smell and taste like treats to her, they’re really just as much of a treat for us. Because, this doggy mom has had her fill of the running, hiding and pulling.
