November 2018 was the 2017 NYC Play Fair and I had to ride in style so #Mazda hooked me up with this hotrod to take on the voyage across state lines. Ok, ok.. it’s only a 45 minute trip into NYC depending on traffic but I wanted that “dramatic” feel haha! And boy did they hook me up!
I feel like I need to start by introducing you to the safety features of this fine beauty called the 2018 Mazda3.
As a mother of 2 boys, I live and breathe what is best for them and my family, and being that we are in and out of it alot, my car isn’t a choice I take lightly.
2018 Mazda Mazda3 Safety Features
- Driver Air Bag
- Passenger Air Bag
- Front Head Air Bag
- Rear Head Air Bag
- Front Side Air Bag
- 4-Wheel ABS
- 4-Wheel Disc Brakes
- Brake Assist
- Electronic Stability Control
- Daytime Running Lights
- Child Safety Locks
- Integrated Turn Signal Mirrors
- Traction Control
- Blind Spot Monitor
- Cross-Traffic Alert
In addition to all of the important features listed above, you can turn on the car length guide that shows you if you’re tailgating the car in front of you which I find extremely useful. You know us NJ drivers need to get where we’re going quickly and sometimes don’t notice we are tailgating until our husband’s yell at us (LOL!).
The interior of the 2018 Mazda3 is breathtaking. They hit the nail on the head with this ivory and black combination interior… I mean just look at how stunning this looks. Would you believe the 2018 starts at just under 20K??
This model came with a sunroof which i l love to keep the window closed but the screen open. Makes November seem like Spring time letting the sun in… when there is sun…
The heated seats, both driver and passenger are a huge bonus and to top it off, a heated steering wheel! ALWAYS GO WITH THE HEATED STEERING WHEEL! You can thank me later.
The interface leaves a little to be desired in my opinion as they artyl haven’t gotten it right. It’s 2018 and there isn’t a standard navigation package in this model which I found a bit odd with how luxurious everything else was.
Alao, getting used to the center console controls takes a little but, but once you get used to it, it’s fine.
Now onto the exterior. What more can I say, such a stylish, family friendly vehicle that works it in all the right places.
Check out this beauty in pearl white with aluminum alloy rims, halogen lights and sleek windows. Did I mention the grill is A-Maz-ingly intimidating yet beautiful? Zoom-Zoom!
See for yourself what the fus is about…
The trunk folds down into the 2nd row for sects space if needed, but even without doing that I wad amazed at how easily I fit my weekly HUGE grocery trip into it no problem.

Lately I’ve been on sort of a health kick.. I am part of a bootcamp training facility that I go to daily at 5am, I am walking a mike a day on my lunch break at work and eating more consciously. I’ve been getting a little into essential oils and using my oil diffuser while i take a shower or a relaxing bath with a bath fizz and some eucalyptus scented Epsom salt to help ease my sore muscles and dry skin.
It also helps me to wind down from the day and just clear my mind. My kids have also used the eucalyptus to help with allergies and sinus issues, I just prop the diffuser in their room and they’re good to go after a couple hours relaxing with it filling the room with aromas.
With that being said, I want to give my opinion on a lesser known mom and pop store in my home town of Staten Island (I love saying I was born on an island because it’s true haha).
Www.Relaxbehealthy.com sent me a few items to check out and i have to say I’m really loving them. I haven’t had much experience with essential oil water sprays but these probably take the cake of i had to guess from what i see with their essential oils.
All of their products are organic and hand made in their shop with imported products from around the world. The items in reviewing are made from raw materials from Bulgaria and are the real deal.
First up to the plate is the Lavender Water. It’s a 4oz misting spray and is $10.99. It has a scent of lavender just a bit lighter then the oil, and is a super soft delicate mist.
All natural Bulgarian organic Lavender water:
When sprayed directly only hair, it helps make hair shiny as it conditions the hair.
You can use the water spray as deodorant for your body, or even spray on furniture and around the home to deodorize.
There are many other different uses for lavender you can experiment with.
Now this Rose Water is my absolute favorite. They captured such am amazing scent I could wear it as a body must and probably will! Also $10.99 at their store, I wish you could smell it through this post, but if you do order from them, I suggest you put this in your cart.
All natural organic Bulgarian Rose Water:
It can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, helps to maintain the skin’s PH balance, helps to hydrate the skin, helps to aid healing scars, cuts, wounds, regenerate skin tissues, dermatitis and eczema. It is a great cleanser and aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores, helps aging skin, wrinkles and fine lines
Extra fun uses include mood enhancer and spray the scent on your pillow to help to sleep better.
Enhance the quality of hair. Helps to rid dandruff, natural conditioner.
For dry & frizzy hair: Mix equal parts rosewater and glycerin, apply on the scalp, massage for 10-15 minutes. Let it stay for another 30 minutes and wash off with shampoo.
Last but not least is their 20ml Lavender Oil that retails for $24.99 but is currently on sale for $21.99 At their online boutique. This little potent bottle is much more fragrant then any other essential oil I’ve gotten and you can tell it’s just so fresh and pure. Check out my video below to see what i compared it to.
- Reduces anxiety and emotional stress.
- Heals burns and wounds.
- Improves sleep.
- Restores skin complexion and reduces acne.
- Slows aging with powerful antioxidants.
- Improves eczema and psoriasis.
- Alleviates headaches.
