RORAIMA Instant Dog Tent review


tent2This is a very impressive dog tent that I can use inside or outdoors. The dog tent came well packaged in a double box and the tent, itself, has a black zipped carrying case to make it easy to take with me when I travel with my Medical Alert Service Dog.

The tent is made from a durable fabric on the bottom and walls and has breathable mesh fabric incorporated on the upper part of the tent for comfort in hot weather. There is a panel that can be placed over the tent and secured to protect my dog from rain when she is outside using the tent.  The top panel also gives my dog shade when the tent is in the sun beside the pool.

tent1Setting the tent up is quick and easy.  In fact, it is quicker and easier than I expected it to be. The tent opens somewhat like an umbrella without much exertion and folds down quickly and easily.

The company specs for this tent are:

Specification:
– Fabric: Heavy duty Oxford fabric with mesh
– Folded size: 27.56″ Length x 5.5″x5.5″

Laminated Jumbo OFFICE THINK Calendar 3′ by 3′

cal1This calendar by Office Think is well thought out and so convenient to use for the task tracking our business needs.

The calendar comes with tacks to pin it to the wall but it is easier for us to use it on a magnetic board and roll it up when transporting it to another inventory room or location. It comes with felt pens and a genius eraser.  Why genius? The company put two magnets on the back of the eraser so no losing it or having it fall on the floor as you are making a presentation or conducting a meeting – the eraser stays within easy reach for use.
The markers write well and are easy to erase, leaving no marks.  The calendar is roll and sturdy so can hold up to transporting and use. It comes in a heavy duty cardboard tube.

Most of the work we do can be seen visually on the calendar so no one has to go run someone down to know what is going on.  They can go check the board as the month goes along so at the end of the month we are all on the same page and working effectively and focused on our goals with all the information we need to do our job.

The website has this description:

  • Huge 24-Inch by 36-Inch Size
  • Extra Large Date Boxes
  • Heavy Duty Laminate/Paper
  • Never Folded
  • Perfect for Organizing
  • Easy Erase PET Film
  • BONUS: With every calendar you will receive 5 dry erase markers, a high quality eraser and 8 jumbo tacks so you can attach the calendar to any wall of your choosing!
  • SHIPS ROLLED, NEVER FOLDED: Unlike other companies, we never fold our calendars. To ensure you never receive creased lines or wrinkles on your calendar, each of our calendars are gently rolled and prepped for shipping so it gets to your front door without a single blemish.
  • EASY BREEZY ERASING: We use a unique OfficeThink PET Film that makes erasing much easier than other standard wet erase calendars. So, go ahead and use as many colors and thick lines as you want on the calendar because erasing on our laminate is a breeze.
  • LONGTERM DURABILITY: A major complaint about jumbo calendars has been laminate and paper thickness. We use the latest PET Film and paper combo possible to provide you with an extremely durable calendar. Say goodbye to random rips. This calendar is built to last.
  • TAKE ORGANIZATION TO THE NEXT LEVEL: This calendar is massive (4 ft by 3 ft) with extra-large 5″ by 6.5″ date squares. We even added a spacious “special notes” section for all your planning needs. Whether you use it for your family, business, or classroom, you’ll find yourself planning like you never have before.

    We recommend this calendar to anyone who is serious about success and productivity.  Here is where you can get one:  https://www.giveawayservice.com/p/o8l8z0e8/o8s1a7t5

The Krista Bifold RFID Wallet

greenwalletI just got a new wallet that I fell in love with. It’s taken me some time to replace the one I had before because it cost so much (yes, we all hang on to things that may not be exactly what we were looking for but we want to get every penny’s worth out of the product!) and it had a lot of pockets for everything I like to have in a wallet.  Well, my old wallet finally died – the snaps gave out on it – so I decided to try a Krista wallet. https://brykerhyde.com/products/the-krista-bifold-wallet?variant=1150058823686

I am thrilled with my new wallet!  It is even better than expected.  It said that there was a cell phone pocket in it but I never thought I could use it because I have a iPhone 6+ with a bulky case.  Guess what? It actually fits so when I am running into Walmart to grab something and want to use Walmart Pay on my phone, I can.  All money access to money is truly in my wallet with my cell phone in there, too.

greenwallet1

The wallet is intelligently designed with plenty of places for all my identification and card. I love that there is NO zippered pocket on the outside, everything is securely inside and the wallet is RFID for protection.  There are two snaps on the corners, not just one in the middle.

This wallet even has a minimalist mini wallet inside when I just need to run in and get something to drink at the gas station without taking the whole wallet with me.

I love the feel of the leather and how well the wallet is made. Everything is done with perfection and every stitch in place.  I usually get black wallets but this one is mint green so I can quickly find it in my purse.  All in all, I love this wallet and highly recommend it.

greenwallet2The website has this description for the wallet:

Practical, yet stylish. Designed to keep you organized in style, the Krista Bifold redefines practical with its removable minimalist wallet and pockets large enough to hold your phone! This wallets pairs exquisite leather and detailed stitching with must-have features (removable minimalist wallet, cell phone pocket, 14 card slots, etc.) to create a durable wallet that will last you for years to come.

  • H 7 ½” x W 3 ¾” x ¾” Thin
  • 14 card slots
  • 2 bill/receipt pockets
  • 1 coin zipper pocket
  • 2 large pockets for an iPhone SE, 5, 6, 7 and Samsung Galaxy
  • Minimalist wallet included:
    • 3 credit card slots
    • 1 ID Window
    • 1 bill/receipt pocket
  • Oiled edges
  • High strength stitching
  • Military grade RFID blocking technology for safety, privacy, and security. Each wallet consists of a unique blend of composite metals. This provides protection against 10MHz to 3000 MHz signals. This includes 13.56 MHz (what credit cards use) and 125 KHz (what most security access cards use) 

    I love mine and you will too! Want to know where to buy one for yourself?  Go here:  https://www.giveawayservice.com/p/w1q9z0e8/o8s1a7t5

6 Wooden Percussion Musical Egg Maracas by CLD Brands


maracas These 6 adorable wooden eggs are actually maracas for children so they can learn about rhythm.

The maracas are made from good quality wood and are smooth with no rough edges.

Each egg has been painted with a different color and theme. There is a darling ladybug, two cute eggs with adorable faces on the end, an egg with flowers and grass and a bright yellow egg with posies on it.

The maracas come in a convenient soft black drawstring bag so they are easy to take them with you to church nursery or when you are going to a homeschool group. The bag is great for storage so you can pop them into the diaper bag or your purse when you are going somewhere or even for storing in the toy trunk.

Using the maracas eggs helps children develop hand and eye coordination and the sound is pleasant – not too loud for adults to be annoying but loud enough for the children to enjoy playing with them.

I know of parents who got these for their children for easter to hide in the easter egg hunt and the children loved them.

I got mine on Amazon here:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078VRT8J9  #tomoson #ad  The seller also has other quality music related items for sale on Amazon.

Chef Remi spatula set

remispatula

This spatula set is a pleasure to use. The handles are made to feel comfortable and allow a good grip when using them.

The bright red handle allows me to see it quickly in the drawer and the modern black and red with an accent of silver make them aesthetically pleasing.

These spatulas are very well made and can hold up to everyday use. They are quick to wash up in the sink with a scrubber or can be tossed in the dishwasher for convenience.  They can take the heat with no problem up to 410F.

I like that they are versatile and can be used on nonstick, glass and enamel cookware. They make a great gift for those who love to cook.

Chef Remi – Measuring cup sets

These cups are great for both wet and dry measuring.  You can get yourself a set here:

50 pcs Refridgerator Magnets

 

These magnets are very well made and nicely machined not to scratch.  They are strong, like forcefield magnets and can hold 10 sheets of paper with just one magnet.

These are called fridge magnets but can be used for all kinds of things. In my house I use them to hold the lace drapes on my metal door in the laundry room so the drapes stay put.  I also use them for doll making by gluing one inside the head of the doll and gluing another one on a pacifier that has the nipple cut off so the doll has a magnetic pacifier.  I glue a round circle of felt on the magnet on the pacifier so it doesn’t hurt the dolls face.

There are other uses for these magnets. I also use them on the legs of my metal desk in my office for convenient easy to read notes.  These magnets come in a plastic case, which I keep put up and out of little finger’s reach.

The listing for them states:
★ 50PCS refrigerator magnets,one magnet can hold up to 10 sheets of print paper.
★ Small size but widely used,perfect for magnetic push pins, office magnets, whiteboard magnet, map magnets etc.
★ Disc magnet shape, machined silver magnet finish,Each Round fridge magnet is 10 x 2mm.
★ Refrigerator magnets NOT for use on glass magnetic boards, and they DO NOT stick to stainless steel.

The magnets measure 10 mm x 2 mm and there are 50 in the package. The magnets are neodymium and are graded as N35 & N52. The quality is very good.

Here is where I got mine:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0788SRZYY

Sink Strainers by Chef Remi

These sink strainers are made from stainless steel so they don’t rust, but it is what they do, not what they don’t do that makes them so special and every house needs them.

strainersI discovered how important it is to have sink strainers after I managed to totally clog up the disposal in my sink and my husband had to take all the plumbing apart to clean out the mess. I never have to worry about that again with these sink strainers.

I have a double sink and a strainer in each sink so everything gets caught and tossed in the trash, not sent down the drain.

When the strainers get dirty or greasy, I just toss them in the dishwasher and they come out sparkling and ready to keep my sinks clean and unclogged. They never get stained either, and always look nice.

These strainers are very well made and the price is right, too.  I got mine here:

3-Piece Silicone Spatula Set by Chef Remi

These spatulas are silicone and perfect for getting the rest of the batter out of the bowl so you have more cookies, biscuits or cake, or whatever you happen to be making today.

My favorite family item that I make is cheesy biscuits and the curved edge on one of the spatulas is perfect for folding the dough (never mix biscuits like do you bread or you will have hockey pucks) and then carefully taking the barely mixed dough out of the bowl to place on a floured countertop.

These spatulas are actually heat resistant up to 400 degrees, so when the phone rings and you hurry to pick it up and accidentally put the spatula down in the hot frying pan, instead of on the cupboard, your spatulas will be just fine.  I also like to use them to stir the veggies up in my hot soup, they work great for that.

If you have frying pans with surfaces you don’t want to scratch, use the thin flexible spatula for frying eggs!  Yep, it really does that function well and protects your nonstick pans.

These spatulas are easy to clean in the dishwasher and indispensable in my kitchen. I really love them. I like the bright red color, too, so I can quickly spot them when hunting for a spatula in my kitchen tool drawer.

I got mine here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XZZ5TXC

Fire Resistant Document Bag with Water Resistant and Zero Irritation Exterior

bagFireproof Storage Pouch (11” x 7”).  

I have been traveling and use this pouch to store all the receipts that must be kept for our business.  If any of the receipts are missing or damaged, that spells a lot of trouble for me, so I got this pouch to protect the receipts from water, fire, and damage.

Water can get in as the pouch is simply sealed with wide velcro but I just use a ziplock bag inside the pouch when there is a chance the paperwork and receipts could get wet, however, most of the time I simply tuck the receipts into the bag for protection.

This bag is very well made, lined with soft red material so there is no problem with hurting my fingers, and so convenient to have. I just keep it tucked into the inner pocket of the lid of my suitcase. It’s quick and easy to grab when I am back home and take the receipts and paperwork to the office.

Amber Teething Bracelet or Anklet 5.3 inch by Baltic Secret

The reason why I got this bracelet is that amber has an ingredient in it called succinic that is released through the skin as the amber is warmed by the skin.  The more amber you have touching the skin, the greater pain relief you will experience.

Some folks use these bracelets for teething relief for babies and toddlers but I use them for relief from aches and pains, like arthritis and lower back pain from lifting too much.  For more pain relief, I use more amber necklaces and bracelets.  I have a friend who has heart problems that make her chest hurt and when I had her wear my amber bracelet, the pain eased off.

All you have to do is try it, but make sure you are buying real amber and not just plastic beads that look like amber that some of the companies on Amazon sell.  This bracelet is the real deal and will work, it is very reasonably priced, too.  The company ships very quickly as well.

My recommendation is to get 2 or three bracelets and wear more than one when your aches and pains are greater and one when you just need some mild relief.  This company also sells the necklaces, which is what I prefer. I always have amber necklaces or bracelets on hand.  This is where I got mine:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0771NHVYG
