Elephant Mugs – so adorable.


These mugs are so adorable that I just couldn’t wait for them to get here.

Drink hot chocolate or herbal tea out of them?

Yes, I guess I could have because they are so well made and their handles just the right size to hold comfortably, but that is not why I got them.

I needed something to put a smile on my face when I was stuck pounding the keyboard at the office.

These mugs are just the ticket.

I needed a sturdy holder or two for my desk for all the markers, pens, pencils, clips, rulers and accessories I have all over the desk, so I am now using these darling elephant mugs to keep my space tidy, efficient and fun.

The mugs are stable and don’t tip over and are the best idea for keeping my desk uncluttered and more efficient.   They also keep a smile on my face!

Canvas Shoulder Bag Messenger Bag


It’s like this bag was made especially for me with everything I asked for in a perfect bag. I really love it.

It is made of a durable brown canvas that is nice to touch, and good thing because you will find me hanging on to my bag all day as I shop and travel.

The front of the bag has two pockets on it and the bottom pocket is perfect to put my iPhone in it and thread the earphone cord through the metal hole so I can take phone calls or listen to music without worrying about laying my phone down and forgetting it or having someone pick it up when I am distracted.

The top zippered pocket is for my lipstick which I wind up applying all day.

I can’t stand dry lips and to have a pocket handy to quickly grab my lipstick and re-apply is imperative.

The strap on the bag is super comfortable and I like that it is brown because it hides dirt.

There is a zippered pocket on the back for my kleenex that I keep handy for allergies this summer and the main pocket area with the zipper at the top is just the right size for my wallet, keys, and a protein bar for a snack.

I love the size of this tote as it doesn’t get in the way and isn’t heavy. It is so convenient and a great value for the cost.

Bluetooth Headphones, OldShark Stereo Wireless for sports

Comfortable secure fit, excellent sound – a great value for the money.
These are exceptional headphones with quality sound and comfortable fit. They are unique in that you can turn them on and off by touching them together – so convenient. The storage case they come in is well designed and fits in my pocket without taking up too much room. I love the pockets inside the case so when I open it the headphones just don’t fall out, they are secured and easily accessible.

I will say this – if you try them out and don’t like the fit or think the sound just isn’t precise enough…change the tips for a smaller size. That happened to me. I simply tried them out with the tips that came with them on it and was sad because they wouldn’t stay in and the sound seemed mediocre. After double checking the box, I found the little zip lock package with the extra tips in them and quickly changed them out so the smallest size was on the headphones. WOW! What a difference. The smaller tips allowed the headphones to go further into my ear and the sound became high quality with great bass and clear treble. I can actually shake my head and the headphones stay in. I love them!

Happlee Decorations for nails & crafts

nailbottles3D Nail Art, Fashion Nail Decoration, Glitter Confetti, New Nail Glitter, Colored Glitter Powder, Perfect Nail Stickers, Nails Art Design with Sequin Shapes, Rhinestones, Powder (48colors)

Gorgeous colors and interesting shapes all in fun shaped bottles. I love the quality of the shapes cut with precision.

This is an amazing set of tiny bottles filled with everything I just love. There are beads, sparkles, vibrant colors, hearts, glitter, stars, jewels, glistening powder, confetti, gold, silver.  The little bottles they are in have stoppers with a loop at the top.

Yes, they are nail art deco filled bottles but I got them for decorating the kid’s room. My daughter and I are gluing the lids on so we can hang them from a rod with a clear stretch cord at different lengths, so when the sunlight hits them they will keep my grandkids awestruck and delighted with all the colors.

They are up out of the way so the little ones can’t break the display or put them in their mouths. These beautiful little bottles with their precious contents, filled right to the top of the bottle, are the perfect accent to our Peter Pan fairy tale bedroom we created for when the grandkids come to visit.

I love them so much that I bought another set to glue some of the contents onto decor items around the room so they match the hanging display at the top of the window.

I am very pleased with my purchase and love all the quality items in the bottles.

You love them, too? You can buy them here:  https://www.amazon.com/Decoration-Confetti-Stickers-Rhinestones-48colors/product-reviews/B06X93LY88

KISSPAT Handmade Feather Dangling Earrings


Don’t you love it when the UPS truck shows up? This time it brought me my pink feather earrings I have been waiting for.

These earrings are actually made with 3 feathers on each earring, the largest feather is pink and there is a yellow feather that is shorter on top of that and the top feather is a gorgeous reflective peacock feather.

The color of the feathers is varied so I can wear them with a number of different outfits and they still match.  They can be worn with casual clothing for a fun bohemian look, or with more business style clothing to relax the appearance of the outfit.  I can also wear them to church, they are very pretty and go with almost any style of clothes I would like to wear them with.

These earrings are handmade and the feathers are bound together with a silver coil at the top of them.

The post type is a fish hook style which I will probably switch for a leverback so I won’t accidentally lose them if the earring gets pushed out of my ear, caught in my long blonde hair.

The brand is Kisspat and their handcrafted artisan jewelry is really very well done I bought them here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073PX8LFC

Organic Slimming Cream

This is a wonderful organic slimming cream that is healthier than many of the choices we have to lose belly fat and also tighten our tummy skin.

When we get older, our skin does not repair and stay smooth and supple like it used to and sometimes Mother Nature needs help. Unfortunately, many of the choices offered have chemicals that poison and damage our bodies while we are trying to help be healthier, so we have to stay proactive and make wiser choices in our purchases.

This slimming cream was offered to me to review and since it appeared to be a healthy choice, I decided to give it a shot.

When I first opened the jar, I found that the cream had pretty much exploded inside the jar all over the inside of the lid. Upon inspection, I found it was because the manufacturer was honest and filled the jar to the brim, not like the other cheaper brands who ship you a jar only partially full – yes, I have received jars like that before, much to my dismay. My first treatment easily resolved the mess problem by using it up!

The next thing I noticed was the very pleasant scent from the cream that I very much enjoyed. Some of the creams stink, quite honestly, and I have actually thrown some away before even using it, but this cream has a delightful scent that is very appealing.

The instructions say to wet the tummy first and apply the cream. In my haste, I forgot to do that and simply applied the cream. You are supposed to massage it in for 3 to 5 minutes, so while I was applying it I read the jar again and saw the comment about wetting the skin. I put water on my hands and rubbed in it and found that it took the consistency from a cream to a lotion that was, perhaps, a little easier to rub in but it didn’t really make a lot of difference but took longer to dry.

I do find that the slimming cream actually works, even from the first time you use it. Tummy is flatter, skin is smoother and results are quick. The ingredients are: Grapefruit, Lemon, Juniper Berry, Jojoba oil, Emodin, and Glycerin. I imagine the fruit ingredients are in the form of essential oils but the jar does not specifically indicate that. I am familiar with all the ingredients but one, and I looked it up. Emodin is a phyto plant substance present in rhubarb and in aloe vera leaves. #tomoson #ad

Moscow Mule Copper Mugs Set


This Moscow Mule mug set is amazing and way better than expected. The first thing I saw was the gorgeous color of the mugs, they are stunning and when I picked them up, I loved the feel and weight of them in my hands. They are beautifully made with very comfortable handles, and the workmanship and detailing of the mugs is exquisite.

There is a sticker on the bottom of the mugs that says “made in India” and I really liked that, too. I have other items made in India and they are quality items.

The wooden box the mugs came in is nice enough to use for a jewelry box, it’s just that good! The box is obviously handcrafted with love and care and has mitered edges – my husband noticed the corners on the box first and commented on how well it was done. There is a really nice tray that the mugs go on and even coasters for them.

This was purchased as a gift for my daughter for all the hard work she does around the farm. I was hoping the quality was going to be good on them and it made me so happy to hear her reaction to the gift. She loves this set and is really excited about getting them! This was a marvelous value for the cost and I won’t hesitate to recommend this set to my friends and family.

The mugs have gorgeous coloring and are beautifully made. The box and accessories with the mugs are very attractive.

Gorgeous red feather earrings from Kisspat


I just got these pretty red feather earrings for my daughter, Laura Virginia Beasley , because she has been working hard canning beans, pickles, tomatoes and freezing corn from the garden for us. These earrings are so gorgeous and made very well. Each one of the feathers has its own silver clip to dangle from. They are hand crafted and approx 5″ long.

These pretty feather earrings are made by KISSPAT and are a vintage Boho style. They are made from real pheasant feathers and each feather is handpicked to be perfect.

The metal in the earrings has nice detailing and is silver colored. There are red accents on the metal part of the earrings to match the color of the beautiful feathers, and the metal has been antiqued so the detailing stands out more.

The earrings have fishhook posts so you can quickly put them on and take them off, but if you want to change the posts to leverback, that would make sure your earrings won’t accidentally slide out from the back if pushed. That’s happened to me before, because the fishhook earrings get caught in my long blonde hair and I have lost one of my favorite earrings.  I change most of the posts to leverback now.

I got them here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073QPLHJ6/ref=twister_B073QNZHNX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

Essential Oil Wooden Storage Carousel

This beautiful rotating essential oil carousel is made from sustainable bamboo wood.

The holes are different sizes so my smaller bottles and individual bottles fit into the carousel for easy access.

The bottom row can fit 20 x 10ml or 15ml bottles and the upper row can fit 11 x 10ml thin roller bottles or 30ml bottles.  I put my roller bottles on the upper row and my essential oils in their original bottles on the bottom row. 

When I need to access a specific essential oil, I can just give the holder a spin and quickly locate it. Before I had the EO carousel, I wound up digging through individuals bottles and it took a lot longer.

This EO carousel is set up so you can put a charging cord through the middle and add a small diffuser in the middle of the carousel if so desired.  I use the middle hole for my largest size of essential oils.

This holder has a metal ring on the bottom that it sits on.  If you are putting this EO holder on a wooden surface, you may want to do what I did and add felt feet to protect the surface, or if you are putting it on a solid surface, you may want to add rubber feet to stop it from sliding.

OldShark V7 Bluetooth Headphones

oldsharkGreat value for the money, these headphones are uber comfortable and have amazing sound quality.

These are super comfortable headphones with phenomenal sound. I am sitting here jamming out to “Sunshine in my Pocket” music and the bass
is great, the treble is clear and the beat just keeping me going.

It was so easy to bluetooth these headphones, I just slid the power button to the right and waited until it flashed red and blue, then I went to my iPhone 6 plus to the bluetooth setting and the headphones
immediately bluetoothed. I am very happy with these awesome headphones and am working better with music that I can actually hear properly.

I just called my daughter on my iphone with the headphones to test them for speaking. I could hear her so much better than just trying to use the phone in the office. Wearing the headphones cut out all the background noises and the sound quality is great, but she did complain that using the headphones on my iPhone caused a background echo so she could hear herself, too. Not sure what to do about that, but I do absolutely love these headphones to listen to my music.

Power Screwdriver by Globaza


I love my new power screwdriver.  It fits conveniently in my hand and tucks in my tool kit because of its size and design.   It is pink and white, my favorite colors and has all the screwdriver tips I need for my craft projects.

There is a wrist strap that comes with it that I recommend using. This little screwdriver is more powerful than you think and with the wrist strap on, it won’t get away from you or get dropped if you lose your grip using it.

The screwdriver comes with an extendable tip so I can use it on all of my craft projects without having to go get a longer screwdriver.

What I really love about charging it is that I can slide the hidden USB port from inside the power screwdriver and charge it with my computer.  There is also a power cable so I can charge the screwdriver with the USB port in my truck. This really is an excellent versatile, compact, convenient tool.

The battery that is in the screwdriver is a li-polymer 3.7 volt, 1,000 mAh.  It has a maximum of 280 rpm and only weighs 9 ounces.

To charge the power screwdriver, it takes about an hour and a half with its USB port, but if you use the charging cable it only takes an hour to charge.

There is a pink switch on the end of the screwdriver.  You can see in my video how to use it and it’s pretty simple. The switch slides to the right and left. If you leave the switch in the middle, it doesn’t allow the screwdriver tips to rotate but does allow you to use the light, but when you slide the button to the right or left, it determines which direction the screwdriver bit will turn to.

BriLove Women 925 Sterling Silver Bermuda Blue Threader Earrings

threadersSo comfortable to wear and such pretty earrings, I really like the quality.

These threader earrings are so delicate and pretty. The back of the earrings is silver and the front is a bright blue.
If you look at them from the sides, they are clear cubes, so it depends on what angle you are looking at the earrings from as to what color they are.
From the front, they are a clear sky blue that is absolutely beautiful.

These earrings are worn by sliding the chain through the ear and there is a clear plastic stopper that I can slide on the earrings to keep them the length that I want them to be.

I can make them longer by allowing more of the chain to dangle from the front of my earlobe for I can pull some of the chain back through the plastic stop to make them shorter. I usually wear them with the stopper halfway up the chain.

Excellent backpack for school or travel by KAKA

KAKA Laptop Backpack Computer Backpack Lightweight Water Resistant Backpack for 15.6-Inch Laptop Black

This backpack is very well made from durable material and the stitching is excellent. There are no loose threads anywhere. There are a variety of pockets of various sizes.

This backpack is one of my favorites because of the security pocket for my wallet and plane tickets are easily accessible to me, but not to anyone else. The pocket is right over my lower back on the inside of the backpack so I just slide my hand between my back and the backpack, grab the pull tab on the zipper and easily open the pouch to get my ID and airline tickets.

The straps are all padded and very comfortable. There is a lot of room inside the backpack with diverse pockets and spaces for everything I need to fit.

This is where I got mine:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0716HT7P4

Ibagbar back pack review

* Sturdy backpack with lots of convenient pockets.
* Intelligently designed with water proof bottom.

This ibagbar backpack is perfect for my needs. The best part, for me, is the waterproof bottom so when it set it down, it doesn’t absorb liquid or allow dirt to stick to it and can be wiped off quickly with a wet wipe.

The straps are very comfortable and well made.

The zippers have tabs that are easy to grab to open the backpack and get my airline tickets quickly at check out.

The backpack is a good size to hold my laptop and a perfect size for sliding under my seat on the plane.

The color gray goes with everything and looks good in a business environment as well as travel use.

KAKA anti-theft backpack

This is a good anti-theft backpack with the embedded zipper in the
front pocket and zipper placed under the flap on the stop. This
backpack is great for carrying my laptop and looks business like with
its minimalistic design.

The material it is made of will hold up well to constant use and the
color hides the dirt.

The inner lining is a pretty teal color and is much better than the
traditional black lining that makes everything disappear into a black
hole. This color will help me find what I need quicker.

The handle on top is comfortable and easy to grab when I am in a hurry.
The straps are padded and intelligently designed with a black mesh
backing for comfort.

There are three panels of padding on the back of the backpack to
provide protection for my laptop.

The only negative comment I have is that since the backpack was made
to make it harder for thieves to steal things from it, the enclosed
zipper is a bit of a struggle to pry it out of the enclosed flap and
dig the zipper out of the channel. That’s the trade off you get when
you try to make it harder for others to get into your backpack, it
also makes it harder for you, and takes longer to access what is in
the backpack.

Makeup travel bag

When traveling it is important to be able to get up and going quickly in the morning. With this travel bag,  it is easy for me to find exactly what I want and get ready for the day quickly. It is also simple for me to put things away in the bag, zip it up and toss it in my suitcase.  There are places for my brushes so they aren’t just sitting in the bottom of a bag tangled up with everything else, and even places to put eyeliner pencils, mascara and hair accessories.

The bag is very well made from black material with professionally done sewing. There are no lose threads and every stitch is in place. The zippers are strong quality zippers and slide open and closed easily.  The zipper tabs are large enough to be able to quickly grasp and pull, even when my hands are wet.

The makeup bag is designed intelligently with a place for everyday toiletries.  The overall size of the bag is just perfect for what I need to fit, and small enough that it doesn’t take much room in the suitcase.  There are two carrying handles that are comfortable on hands and strong enough to handle the constant use. #tomoson #ad

Tocode Sports Waterproof Camera & accessories

Tocode H9R 4K Sports Action Camera, Full HD Wifi Waterproof DV Camcorder with 4K25/ 1080P60/ 720P120fps Video, 12MP 170 Degree Wide Angle 2 inch LCD Screen/2.4G Remote Control

I am really thrilled with my new TOCODE sports camera. As I unboxed it and realized just how many accessories came with it, I got more and more excited.

Everything was packed carefully and in their own individual zip lock bags. The case it came in was a high quality very well made case with Styrofoam cut own protection inside the case for everything to fit into place.

The camera has four modes – video, photo, time lapse and burst photo mode. In burst photo mode the camera takes 3 photos in 1.5 seconds.

To charge the battery on the camera I used the included USB charger and cable and plugged it into the power strip on the back of my work table. I did notice that the camera got very hot to the touch when charging but cooled off fairly quickly when it was unplugged.

The user manual is very well written and has good visuals to show me how to use all the mounts that come with the camera.

To get to the settings menu I cycled through the various options using the Down/Wi-Fi button. This camera is very simple to use.

Hummingbird LED solar wind chimes

I got the prettiest wind chime that is made of lovely clear nicely detailed hummingbirds. What is even better is that it is a solar wind chime that lights up! The humming birds stay lit for up to 8 hours when the wind chime has fully charged by the sun through the solar panel that the hummingbirds are suspended from.

The lights are LED so they don’t get hot so there is no worries about little ones burning their fingers when they want to touch the lovely birds.

The hummingbirds are really delicate and well made, they are very realistic.

I hung the chimes in the window of my dining room so they catch the sun all day and at night look beautiful.  I didn’t want to put them outside because some of the reviews I read for the product stated that the birds fell off the chime in the wind, and since they are inside, I don’t have to worry about the weather breaking the wind chime.  It is also near the window where I look outside and see the real hummingbirds coming to the feeder. #tomoson #ad #review

SMARTOMI Gee True Wireless Earbuds

smartomiearbugsThese earbuds are comfortable, easy to use, lightweight and stay put.

When I got them, the first thing I did was put the smallest tip on the earbud so it sat in
my ear properly.

With the loop over the top of the ear, my earbuds stay in the ear easily instead of falling out.

The left earbud is the main one and I can use it while the other one is charging. I love the carry case they come in so I can keep it handy in my purse.

One of the things I love about this set is that there are no double sets of tangled cords because the earbuds come with a USB split cord for convenience. These earbuds are lightweight so I can wear them for a long time without any problems, The sound is acceptable and phone calls are clear.

The instruction paper that came with it is easy to understand and has
visual aids as well as text.

beegod Emergency Personal Security Alarms

Small, compact, effective, lightweight and LOUD.

beegodalarmThis personal safety alarm is LOUD and lightweight so it can easily be tucked in my pocket when I am going out by myself to secure the property, especially at dusk. There is a convenient mini flashlight on the end that you turn on by pushing the small oval button. It can go on a keychain or simply hang it by the door to grab when you need it.

To make the alarm go off, you pull the side tab out of the alarm and to stop the sound you push the tab back in. I tested it in my house and my dog at the other end of the house was cowering in her bed. It is truly loud and has a loud warble sound to it, the kind you hear from some of the police car sirens. I wondered when I got it what it would sound like and this is an alarm type of sound that people would recognize as a problem and come running.

The flashlight is LED so won’t heat up and burn if you keep it on too long. The mini alarm & light is small enough to tuck into the palm of your hand, so is easy to take with you so you can get help if needed.

It’s not just if you have a problem with people. Older folks who fall down and can’t get up can use it if they are going for a walk along a trail in the city park where there aren’t very many people. Folks can also call for help if their neighbor’s dog gets loose and is attacking. This alarm is loud enough that the dogs should run from it. Mine did.
