This karaoke machine features a speaker with a retractable luggage handle, which makes it easy to wheel around.  Furthermore, because it has a built-in rechargeable battery, you can literally take it anywhere.

Furthermore, this karaoke machine has bluetooth which easily allows you to connect to any device that comes equipped with bluetooth.  And, this will allow you to have unlimited karaoke music in the palm of your hand.  For those that don’t have a bluetooth-enabled device, there is an auxiliary input to accommodate you.

If you choose to forgo the device all together, there are a few other options to get the music pumping.  There is an FM radio, micro SD card or flash USB connection.

And, like we mentioned previously, the STARQUEEN Karaoke Machine comes with a built-in charger.  And, this charger can be charged while you use the karaoke machine.  In addition, it is advised you charge the battery for 12 hours before use.  Furthermore, in order to protect the karaoke machine, it is recommended you fully charge the battery before storing.  The total charge time is between 8 and 10 hours, while the longevity of the charge is between 4 and 5 hours.

Another additional feature this karaoke machine offers is a USB port to charge your phone, laptop or tablet.

Finally, and perhaps the icing on the cake is, the STARQUEEN Karaoke Machine comes with multi-colored LED lights.  Didn’t we tell you this karaoke machine has everything you could dream of?

Pros:

This karaoke machine delivers great vocals with a clear and crisp sound.  Furthermore, the volume is more than adequate enough to handle a party of 100 people, and perhaps even more.

The other thing we love about this karaoke machine is it easy to set up and easy to connect via bluetooth.

Cons:

There are some random complaints of defective parts.  For instance, a few consumers complained about connectivity issues.  However, it is important to note that the majority of consumers have not reported these issues.  We chalk it up as, sometimes there’s a bad apple in the mix.

ION Audio Tailgater iPA77

ION Audio Tailgater iPA77

This pick for best karaoke machine and PA system is a great budget option if you’re looking for a machine with a full-sized speaker.  The ION Audio Tailgater is very LOUD.  So, this will work great for addressing large crowds and will work great for belting out some tunes.

And, although the ION Audio Tailgater iPA77 isn’t specifically designed for karaoke, it will work just as well, if not better, than any other karaoke machine on the market.

If you’re looking to use this as a karaoke machine, you simply connect your bluetooth device for the music and lyrics.  And, this audio tailgater has separate sound for the microphone and separate sound for the speakers.  So, it’s awfully simple to use this tailgater for karaoke.

The ION Audio Tailgater iPA77 features a 2-way speaker with a 50-watt amplifier.  It comes with AM/FM radio and a 1/8″ auxiliary input.  And, it includes a microphone and an auxiliary cable.

And finally, the ION Audio Tailgater has a USB power bank so you can charge your phone, computer or tablet.

Pros:

This karaoke and PA system connects quickly and easily to bluetooth.  And, for the price, the sound quality is clear and the volume level is outstanding. 

Furthermore, the 50-hour battery life on this system is unheard of.  You can karaoke for 2 days straight without having to recharge it.

Cons:

While some consumers say the microphone is decent, others have claimed it to be lousy.  The good news is, if you don’t care for the microphone, you can easily replace it with one that’s up to your standards.

In addition, this system doesn’t have wheels for easy portability.  However, the ION Audio Tailgater is fairly small in size, so it isn’t much of a hassle to cart around.

Memorex Sing Stand 3 MKSSS Home Karaoke System

Lastly, this karaoke machine is 59 inches tall when the mic stand is fully extended.  And, the base measures 12 inches in diameter.

Pros:

If you’re looking for a no-frills karaoke machine with a stage-presence feel, this is a great pick for you.  And, it works great for at-home use.  Not so much for large parties though.

Cons:

Because the speakers are only 5-watts apiece, it isn’t going to deliver the greatest quality of sound.  However, the quality of sound is adequate for casual use.  If you’re looking for high quality sound with a significant amount of volume output, you may want to go with one of the picks above.

 

KaraoKing Karaoke Microphone H8 2.0

Pros:

This is as compact as you’re going to get.  It’s convenient, easy to use and highly portable.

Furthermore, the volume on this karaoke machine can get pretty loud.  However, not so loud that you will be waking the neighbors up.

Cons:

There’s not really many cons to this karaoke machine.  If anything, it may not get as loud as you want.  But, if you have teenagers belting out lyrics, you may not even want it all that loud.

Best Women’s Bathrobe from Cozy to Sexy

If you’re looking for the best women’s bathrobe, you’ve come to the right place.  This is because we are obsessed with bathrobes.  It’s that one item that once you start, you can’t live without.  And then, it starts getting out of hand.  You need a bathrobe for every season and every occasion.  And then, the bathrobes start taking over and demanding their own closet.

Ok..ok…it’s not that bad.  We actually have been practicing more and more restraint with bathrobes.  We’re always scoping out bathrobes whenever we go shopping and many times just leave them on the rack where we found them.  We’ve learned to say no more than yes.

Because of this, we have been able to narrow down our own personal selection of bathrobes to a minimum of 4 based on season and occasion.  We have the cozy bathrobe for the winter, the sexy bathrobe for the foreplay and after-play, the bathrobe for the dead heat of the summer and the medium-weight bathrobe for the fall that works just as well for the spring.

best women's bathrobe

And, because we have been able to narrow down our selection of bathrobes, we know what works.  We know what’s going to look good and what’s going to feel good.  And, we know how to satisfy our own bathrobe desires with a minimal selection.  

So, whichever season or occasion you are looking for, we picked out 10 of our top favorite best women’s bathrobes on the market.  And, whether you’re looking for a bathrobe for a gift, or perhaps, indulging yourself, quality-wise these bathrobes are meant to last.  Style-wise, they are classic enough to get you through at least the next 10 years.

And, we didn’t practice restraint with this list.  We actually picked up a couple because we somehow convinced ourselves that some of our bathrobes needed an update.  So much for practicing restraint!  If you want to check out our own personal picks, we have them marked below as “Editor’s Pick.”

Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume Gift Set

Marc Jacobs Variety 4 Piece Mini Gift Set

We’re not sure what we love more.  The packaging or the smell.  All we know is we love it all and would be thrilled to receive this as a gift.

The Marc Jacobs Variety 4 Piece Mini Gift Set comes with four .12 ounce bottles of Marc Jacobs’ signature perfumes.  This is the perfect set to test out each fragrance and the perfect set for those that like to mix things up a bit.

Dot:  The first scent we call our “happy scent.”  It is an exuberant floral with top notes of red berries, mid notes of jasmine and base notes of driftwood.  It is bold and dense, yet feminine.  Perfect for those spirited times.  

Daisy Dream:  This is perhaps the longest lasting fragrance out of the set.  Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is the right mixture of fruity and floral featuring notes of blackberry, grapefruit and pear.  The mid notes are jasmine, lychee and blue wisteria while the low notes are a combination of white woods, musks and coconut water.

Daisy:  The Daisy Eau de Toilette is one of Marc Jacobs most notable achievements.  It has won awards for both the Fragrance Foundation’s FiFi Award for Women’s Luxe Fragrance of the Year and Women’s Prestige Best Packaging, 2008.  It has a clean, fresh and feminine scent featuring wild strawberry, violet petals, gardenia, jasmine and topped with birch and cedarwood.

Honey:  The final scent in this gift set is more of a fun and energetic fragrance.  Honey features green pear, fruity punch and juicy mandarin.  The mid notes contain orange blossom, honeysuckle and peach while honey, vanilla and smooth woods make up the low notes.

Overall, this gift set is for the fun, lighthearted, the sweet, the caring.  And, what girl wouldn’t love some Marc Jacobs?

This is definitely our pick for best perfume gift set.  Hands down.

Lancome Perfume Gift Set

Lancome La Collections de Parfums Five Piece Mini Gift Set

The Lancome La Collections de Parfums Five Piece Mini Gift Set is one for the sensual, seductive and feminine woman.  This is a very classic array of fragrance that also has a touch of youthfulness.

Hypnose:  The first scent couldn’t have been called a better name.  Because it is, in a weird way, hypnotic.  The top note of passion flower makes for a bright and youthful scent while the mid note of vanilla adds a little romance.  The base note of vetiver is the final note that adds to the mystery of this scent.  And interestingly enough, the bottle is inspired by a Japanese woman draped in her kimono.

La Vie est Belle:  This perfume is named after a French expression meaning “life is beautiful.”  And this particular blend of fragrance is a perfume for the free-spirited.  The top note of iris softens the mid note of patchouli.  While the base note of sweet gourmand is an unexpected twist to this unexpected combination.  And the combination of complex and care-free is hard to even conceive but Lancome managed to perfect it with this fragrance.    

Tresor:  This scent is perfect for venturing from day to night.  The top notes are of bergamot and peach while the heart notes are damascena rose, violet, heliotropin and jasmine.  It’s finished off with sandalwood and musk.  

Miracle:  For those spicy moments, Miracle by Lancome is an energizing fragrance.  The top notes of lychee and freesia are complimented by the mid notes of magnolia, ginger and pepper.  Add a touch of amber, jasmine and musk and you have a concoction for some salsa dancing.  The bottle is inspired by Lalique, a world renowned French crystal manufacturer.

Overall, this is the most inspiring out of all of the perfume gift sets.  It has some interesting concoctions that are surprisingly gorgeous.

Gucci Flora Perfume Gift Set

Gucci Flora The Garden Collection 4 Piece Gift Set

This luxury collection was inspired by Gucci’s signature flora pattern.  And Gucci’s creative director describes the inspiration for this collection as “charming, romantic and optimistic.”  And we would have to agree, this collection has all the innocent qualities that make these fragrances so appealing.

Gracious Tuberose:  This fragrance features violet complimented by the mid notes of tuberose and peach.  While the base notes consist of cistus and white cedarwood.  And all of these combined make for a soft and delicate fragrance.

Glamorous Magnolia:  The Glamorous Magnolia by Gucci is an interesting blend starting with freesia and topped off with citrus, magnolia and peony.  This perfume is finished off with the blend of sandalwood, musk and chocolate.  

Glorious Mandarin:  This particular fragrance is going to take you somewhere exotic.  And perhaps it will be saved for a trip to paradise.  It starts off with mandarin as the top note and is paired with Pina Colada and jasmine as the mid notes.  And then wood and white musk are added for the base.

Gorgeous Gardenia:  The Gorgeous Gardenia reminds us of spring in the country.  Red berries, white gardenia, frangipani flower with the base notes of brown sugar and patchouli.

Overall, this is a dream fragrance set for any woman.  Everyone loves the smell of flowers, so with this set you really can’t go wrong.  And out of all of our perfume gift sets, this is one of the most desired by every woman at FHL.  

Nina Ricci Perfume Gift Set

Nina Ricci Collection 5 Piece Gift Set

Exquisite is a good description for this perfume gift set.  The Nina Ricci Collection 5 Piece Gift Set is a luxurious variety of floral, fruity, musky and woodsy scents.  It’s one of those collections that will work for everyone, even the pickiest of giftees.   

L’Extase:  Launching in 2015, this is a fairly new perfume to the Nina Ricci brand.  The tops notes consist of Bulgarian and Turkish rose and is tapered off by peony and violet.  The base note is a white musk which makes L’Extase the perfect perfume for the girl-y and tomboy alike.

Nina:  This scent has been around for nearly twenty years and has become quite a staple in the perfume world.  Nina by Nina Ricci is recommended for casual wear and has a youthful and carefree vibe.  The top notes are lemon and lime with the heart of the perfume being candied apple, praline, vanilla, sweet peony and moonflower.  It is finished off with apple tree, white cedar and balmy musk.

Mademoiselle Ricci:  Sweet and spicy is the aura of Mademoiselle Ricci.  The top notes consist of rose centifolia and eglantine while the heart of the fragrance is pink laurel and the base is pink pepper.

L’air Du Temps:  This one is also sweet and spicy but with a certain carefreeness.  The top notes of carnation and gardenia are paired with the mid notes of centilfolia rose and jasmine.  The low notes leave a hint of sandalwood and iris.  

Nina L’eau:  The final fragrance in this gift set is fruity, floral and feminine.  The top note is that of a frosted neroli with mid notes of apple blossom and gardenia.  And it’s finished off with a white musk.

Overall, out of all the perfume gift sets, this one sits near the top.  It’s feminine, fun, spicy, carefree and romantic all wrapped up in 5 amazing bottles.  And since these fragrances hit just about every type of senses, it’s sure to please pretty much everyone.

Overall, Bright Crystal is a sparkly, sexy, fun, sophisticated but not overpowering.  And the packaging is made for a princess.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set

Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set

We had to add in a second Marc Jacobs pick.  Mainly because their packaging is worthy of display.  And, this gift set would be great if you’re looking to gift a singular fragrance over a sampler set.

The Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set comes with a 3.3 ounce spray, a 5.1 ounce luminous body lotion and a 4.0 milliliter miniature eau de toilette.

Daisy has top notes of strawberry and violet with mid notes of red grapefruit, gardenia and jasmine.  While the lower notes are birch and cedarwood. 

And like we stated before, this is one of Marc Jacobs most notable achievements.  It has won awards for both the Fragrance Foundation’s FiFi Award for Women’s Luxe Fragrance of the Year and Women’s Prestige Best Packaging, 2008.

And, did we mention we love the packaging?

Gucci Perfume Gift Set

Gucci by Gucci 2 Piece Gift Set

Our final pick in our selection of perfume gift sets is this classic set from Gucci.  This is a great scent for the modern, the preppy or the corporate woman.

The Gucci by Gucci 2 Piece Gift Set comes with a 1.7 ounce spray and a 3.3 ounce body lotion.

The top notes of guava and pear are paired with base notes of patchouli, musk and honey.

And, while this fragrance isn’t overly feminine, it is a nice combination of both feminine and tomboy.  It’s truly a classic fragrance and leaves a distinctive and lasting impression.
