I’m Raphaela; a candid lifestyle and family vlogger, internet entrepreneur, DIY lover and bikini bodybuilder. I am raising my two littles and went through a less than ideal military divorce in 2016. I share what it’s like ‘behind the scenes’ of divorce, single parenting, saving money (DIY), product reviews and our real life in my weekly vlogs.

My littles love making video appearances sometimes too, but they also have their own YouTube channel. Ava is my art-loving, opinionated, 9 year old, and Cash is my chocolate-infatuated, irresistibly charming 7 year old dare devil. We love reviewing products together, doing YouTube challenges, playing with their toys, traveling and exploring together.

Most days it’s just me, but sometimes it’s all three. We hope you join us daily as we do this new life together. To watch the kids channel, visit:

JD N says:

Is the AKDY unit lights LED?

dkbuttons1 says:

My rooms are carpeted. Is it safe placing the Akdy on a carpet?

Raphaela Laurean says:

Hey guys, I realized that I forgot to mention how loud these units are. They are both extremely quiet. You can barely hear either one of the units, which is why I forgot to mention it in the video. If I had to say which one is louder, I would say that the Duraflame unit it louder, but only because you can hear it cycling on and off as it reaches your desired temperature. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for watching.
