3-Piece Silicone Spatula Set by Chef Remi

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.

Amber Teething Bracelet or Anklet 5.3 inch by Baltic Secret

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.

This is a very good magnetic knife holder that I had planned to use in my kitchen but when it arrived, my daughter immediately claimed it and I was happy to give it to her. She is a chef and has a wonderful organized kitchen so this magnetic knife holder was perfect for her. It will keep her kitchen tidy and neat with tools quickly available to use.

This magnetic knife holder can also hold her kitchen scissors or metal spoons she works with to create the wonderful dishes she makes.  It is simple for her to glance up from the cutting board and see the knife she needs and retrieve it. Continue reading

Cablex 3Pack 6FT iPhone Lightning Cable

There are 3 charging cords in this set and they work well. They are white so not distracting in the office environment where bright colors are frowned upon.  They charge my iPhone 6 plus quickly and are well made so they will hold up to a lot of use without breaking.  It is nice to have three cables in this set so I can use one in the car, one at the office and one at home.

This tent is a lot of fun. You can set it up in the backyard for the kids to play in, use it on your camping trips or even to change in at the beach for the day. It is also fun to set up inside the house for the kids to have their own “room” when they come visiting grandma or if they want a neat playroom for the day. Continue reading

Zoodinos Magazine

The Zoodinos website states: ‘Dinosaurs come alive for kids in our new Dinosaurs book series from Zoobooks. Each edition in the Dinosaur series follows the award-winning Zoobooks approach: combining spectacular scientifically-correct illustrations and vibrant photos. Simple, interactive text encourages discussion and learninG.”

I am actually very impressed with these magazines and my homeschooled grandchildren will have a blast learning about dinosaurs from these colorful, well written magazines.

There are poems and stories that are fun and interesting. The pictures are very realistic and engaging. A plethora of scientific information adding fact to fictional stories bring the dinosaur era alive for young aspiring minds. Continue reading

Easy Snorkel Mask – easy to use and fun!

If you are tired of struggling with your mask when you are enjoying the sun and water, things just got a lot better.  The Easy Snorkel Mask is comfortable to wear, simple to put on, doesn’t fog up and doesn’t leak.  

You can actually spend time enjoying snorkeling without fighting the equipment.  This is a full face mask so you can breathe through your nose and mouth comfortably with no breathing tubes to bother with, and you have a 180 degree view.

I love to kayak and swim in the Missouri river.  It is so peaceful and enjoyable to watch the turtles glide under your feet and see the fish moving gracefully through the water through an easy to use comfortable snorkel mask.  I can lose all the stress of the day effortlessly with an afternoon in the water with this well made, intelligently designed full facemask.  

This mask just arrived and I have done an unboxing video so you can see it for yourself, instead of simply looking at pictures online and hoping for the best.  It does fit well and doesn’t pull my hair.  I have long blonde hair and am tender-headed so that is a huge plus for me.

If you would like to see more videos and read additional information about this mask, you can go to the company website here:  https://easysnorkelmask.com/

Jadience Slimming Soak

I found an all natural herbal bath soak that is just what I needed and wanted. The scent is wonderful, as you breathe it in, you can feel the stress of the day leaving your body and mind.

This is a slimming soak that is promoted to help detox the body to stimulate the metabolism and encourage fat loss (for us ladies over 50, we can use all the help we can get in that area), and will also tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

I imagine that will take place over time and with continued use.  For now, I am just thrilled to have a product I can use that is healthy and lets me unwind in the tub after a long day. Continue reading

GKHair Hair Taming System Conditioner

When I first opened the bottle of the conditioner, I saw that it was more like a cream than a lotion as the consistency was thicker. This meant it was going to be easier to apply as it wasn’t runny and I would be able to apply it easier but putting some in the palm of my hand and rubbing my hands together.

To prepare my hair for the hair conditioner I needed to wash my hair with excellent quality shampoo.  

It is best if you have the same brand of shampoo, but I didn’t so I used what I had on hand and washed my hair twice to make sure it was squeaky clean.   Continue reading

Photoshop Tutorial by John Slavio

I bought this book on Amazon to load on my Kindle to read.

I have Photoshop and have used it for years.

I wanted to see what was considered a “beginner” book.

I also wanted to see what the author considered important information for inclusion in the book for folks who have never used Photoshop before.

This book is a very basic book for those who are unfamiliar with the layout in Photoshop and will help them understand how to do basic tasks so they can begin to build on Photoshop mastery. Continue reading

Burn-out #acnegone review

Hemp spray for removing acne scars and healing skin….naturally.

This is a metal bottle that has a spray solution in it that you use after you have washed and dried your face to be able to get the full effects of healing from it. The ingredients are Aloe Vera water, sweet almond oil, witch hazel, German blue chamomile oil, lavender essential oil, vitamin E oil, polysorbate, germaben II preservative, distilled water, melaleuca tea tree oil, elite fractionally distilled hemp extract (250 mg Canabidoil Complex), so you can see that there are a number of wonderful healing ingredients in this solution. There is a total of 2.7 oz in this misting spray bottle.

To use, you shake the bottle really well to mix up the contents and spray it on. I would test it on your wrist first, to see if you have any negative reactions to it, that’s what I did. I have sensitive skin and had no problems.

There is an essential oil scent to it as tea tree oil does have a strong scent, but the lavender in the solution counteracts it. I thought it would have a consistency like water but it is more like dry oil. I sprayed it on the underside of my arm to test and expected it to pretty much dry to nothing but had a chuckle when my arms are sticking to my desk so it’s interesting typing this LOL.

I would recommend using this at bedtime on your face or wherever you have acne or skin problems you are working on healing. It is easy to use and effective…and no, the smell does not soften and go away, it stays so don’t try to use this and go out for the day, you are going to smell like tea tree oil – not unpleasant but it does have a scent like you used a household cleaner.

Mini backpack by KAKA

Just right for taking a walk with my dog in the park, I can carry his treats and some of my things. It is well sewn.  Color: Black

I was looking for a way to take my things with me when I walked the dog in the park without having to either stuff it in my pockets and risk it falling out or getting stuck using my large purse and having to drag that around with me with only one hand left to try to hang on to the dog’s leash.

This mini backpack is just perfect for what I needed and I can adjust it so if the dog has lots of energy like at the beginning of the walk, I can wear it across the body so it stays put.

After my dog has run some of his energy out, I can move the mini backpack so it is over one shoulder.

There is plenty of room in this mini backpack for my keys, wallet, phone, book, chapstick, dog treats, comb, and headscarf.

It’s not quite big enough for a water bottle, and the front pocket could have held a little more if there weren’t tucks in the fabric on either side of the bottom, but the backpack is very well sewn and the zippers slide easily.

The reason I chose this brand is because I purchased another backpack from them and was very happy with the quality.

I have purchased other backpacks and they were made out of thin mesh material that fell apart when I tried to clean them, but the backpack I bought from this company held up very well and I can clean them, too.

Love You A Little S’More Mug 11 oz

This mug has the cutest little saying on it and is well made – great for the 

You know when kids are having a tough time and they just need to know you love them, no matter what?

That’s what this mug is for. I have a little granddaughter who has been through the wringer ever since she got here to this earth.

Many hospital stays, lots of prayers and hard work and she is home, going to school and doing well, except…sometimes when she is having a hard day…….she just needs to know everything is okay and she is loved.

I tell her all the time but with this cute mug, she knows I love her with this darling reminder every time she goes to get a drink, especially when I am not there because we live far away from each other.

This sweet little mug is exactly what she needs to put a smile on her face.

It is well made and even if she accidentally knocks it off the table onto the floor, it can take it.

This is a good quality mug, not just a cheap dollar store type, and it is solid, sturdy and okay for kids to use daily.

The handle is just perfect for her to hold as it is comfortable and designed to be able to hang on to the mug without slipping because it is just the right size for her fingers to hold it.

Do you need one for your special someone? I got it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZYJ1S8C Continue reading

Top Koality Mom and Dad Ceramic Coffee Mug Gift Set

These mugs were purchased as a special gift for adoptive parents. 

I thought about what they would need and they already had clothing,
diapers, kids stuff but nothing that was for them. 

I love these mugs – I have another set that has elephants on them that I bought for my
desk – and I know they are really well made and comfortable to hold so
I am giving them to the new parents. 

The way I see it, with sleep deprivation for not only one but two new little ones, they are going to get a lot of use out of these mugs filled with coffee to stay awake! 

They are really stable so if the new parents are half asleep in the middle of the night enjoying a cuppa, they can easily set the mug down without it tipping over. 

The neat thing about this mugs is that they came in a box that says “Life is a Gift” on it and that is perfect for this present I am giving.
