Braven Flye Sport Reflect Bluetooth Earbuds


Braven Flye Sport Reflect Bluetooth Earbuds
Black

Okay, so I have good news, and bad news. The good news is that these earbuds are totally awesome! They are Bluetooth, so no need to plug them into your smart phone to play your favorite music, or use them as a hands free device when driving! Great for a quick jog, or long walks. Let's you play your favorite tunes, while your phone is in your pocket, without any cords!

The earbuds bring you awesome reception with great sound! A good dial for lowering or increasing the sound. And a good mic for those hands free calls, Everyone will hear you just fine with this mic! And you can get up to 25 hours of playtime on a single charge!

Now the bad news. They are currently out of stock, and Amazon.com isn't sure whether they will get new shipment or not. But check here frequently to see if they get more or not.

I give these earbuds five stars,

a big thumbs up,
and I highly recommend them!

Fred GOOD MEASURE Cocktail Recipe Glass

Fred GOOD MEASURE Cocktail Recipe Glass
16-ounces

This is my SECOND glass like this one. The first one DH was washing dishes and dropped it in the sink, and it shattered. I told him to keep his paws off this one!

I love how it has cocktail and mixed drinks recipes right on the side of the glass. And marks off the correct amounts to add to fill the glass! Buy one to mix your drinks in. Or buy several! That way you can leave the mixed drink right in the glass when you serve! I guarantee that your guests will have such a good time reading the recipes, and they'll know exactly what they want you to mix up when they return the empty glass for more!

This comes one to a carton, and shipped well. It holds 16-ounces, and is made of glass. So make those generous sized drinks and enjoy your guests!

You can purchase your Fred GOOD MEASURE Cocktail Recipe Glass from Amazon.com here. And it qualifies for Free Shipping!

I rate this product with five stars,

I give it a big thumbs up,
and I recommend it for the recipes, and the great size!

Le Petit Marsellaiss Vanilla Milk Shower Creme

Le Petit Marsellais Vanilla Milk Shower Crème

Okay, so everyone who knows me, knows that I absolutely love the scent of vanilla. (Don't tell anyone, but I've been known to dab a little vanilla extract behind my ears, and on my wrists in place of expensive perfumes. Drives guys crazy. You'll be asked things like "What have you been cooking?" "Hmm, I hope you brought some of that with you whatever it is, cause it smells so good!") Well, this shower crème is so lovely, and lightly scented, that you may be asked the same questions!

Use it with a sponge, loofah, shower puff, or a washcloth, it makes you feel so soft. And cuddly! And unlike some of the heavier brands of shower soap, it doesn't leave you feeling like you have a layer of soap still on your body when you are all rinsed off! (I cannot use most of the brands of shower gels or creme's, as they make me feel like the soap can't be rinsed off. Then I break out in hives or scratch myself silly because they leave a film on me.) This rinses so clean, all that remains is the light vanilla scent! I adore this!

You can find this shower crème on Amazon.com here. It retails for $17.09. Buy two and you'll be eligible for the free shipping! It comes in Vanilla Milk, Lavender Honey, and Orange Blossom. So why not get all three?

I give this product five stars,
a big thumbs up,


and my personal recommendation.

Magic Shower - Tub Squeegee

Magic Shower - Tub Squeegee

Okay, for years I have been using a cleaning method for my bathtub, which takes me only a few seconds, because I do it every day. And that is simply taking my washcloth when finished showering, and wiping down all the water from the shower walls and floor of the tub. It keeps minerals from building up and making the tub look really nasty. So, when I saw this shower/tub squeegee, you know this Mama had to have one!

At a generous 10.2-inches long, and a wide 9.2-inch wiper blade, you can clear your shower or tub from water in an even faster time! It really works. And it does works well.

You can purchase this Magic Shower - Tub Squeegee on Amazon.com here. It retails for a very reasonable $8.71, plus shipping and handling.

I give this product five stars,

and a big thumbs up!

Fred TOASTY Roasting Marshmallow Skewers

Fred TOASTY Roasting Marshmallow Skewers

Okay, so I'm one of those people who think summer isn't summer without going camping a few times, and camping isn't camping without a campfire, some sticks and roasting marshmallows. Yes, I said sticks. Small round sticks, about 3-4 feet long, put you a couple of fluffy marshmallows on the stick, and you've made a marshmallow kabob. Then place the marshmallows over the flames and toast them! So yummy!

Well, now you have some really nice skewers here, instead of looking for a green twig that won't burn up over that campfire! These heavy duty skewers are going to last a lifetime! You're grandchildren will be using these with fondness one day long after you are gone, as they share marshmallows over a campfire, with their grandchildren! That's how super duper these are!

Made from heavy duty stainless steel, these bad boys are made to last! Polypropylene, marshmallow shaped handles ensure you'll be holding onto the "cool" end. Two pronged, very sharp ends for putting marshmallows on for roasting, so please, use these responsibly folks! Don't let children use them until they are old enough to know you don't run with sharp, pointy objects; or have pretend sword fights with them! The sharp points can be dangerous if not used responsibly!

The only con I can think of for these, is that I wish they were a little longer. They are only 12-inches long. But they telescope to 32-inches for roasting marshmallows over an open fire. I really wouldn't let little children (anyone under 8 or 9) use these, as you'll have to lean out near an open flame to get these to roast the marshmallows. 

Stack 'em on and let's get roasting!

You can purchase Fred TOASTY Roasting Marshmallow Skewers  on Amazon.com here. A set of four are $29.99, which makes them eligible for free shipping! Yeah baby!

So, honey go get some firewood! Mama's got a BIG bag of marshmallows!

By the way, do you just toast your marshmallows? Or do you burn 'em black? (I prefer mine burnt!)

I give these skewers five stars,
and a big thumbs up!

Petstages Mix and Scratch for Cats


PETSTAGES Mix and Scratch for Cats

My cat is beginning to age a bit now. She's almost 9 years old, and has slowed down a lot. She seldom gets excited about a toy any more. And we've bought them all for her at one time or another. But one thing she has always loved are the cardboard scratchers that come with a pouch of cat nip. She'll work for hours sometimes just scratching the cardboard and rubbing the catnip. It must be Nirvana for cats!

So when I saw this Mix and Scratch from Petstages I simply had to get one to see if she would enjoy this! And boy does she ever!  She will scratch away at the catnip infused cardboard for quite a while. And then suddenly, the little ball, within its own circular track, will jingle, and she is off to races to see how fast she can move it around in circles! She'll work at it for quite a while before finally giving up and getting back to the scratching part.

I love how you could buy several of these and snap them together for multiple cats, or to give your cat multiple places to scratch!

There is no assembly. Just open the package, set the scratch mat on the floor, and kitty will come running!

The Petstages Mix and Scratch can be purchased from Amazon.com here. It retails for $12.99.

I give this product five stars,

a big thumbs up,

and my personal recommendation.

Softzone Peek-A-Boo Storage Bin

Softzone Peek-A-Boo Storage Bin

I received this, thinking I could use it for some much needed office storage if nothing else.

This storage bin is a nice sized (12"H x 12"W x 12" D), collapsible, vinyl bin, with a clear window in the front. It's designed for kids toys and such, which is perfect considering the clear window in the front! Kids could easily see their own toy box or personal items as opposed to accidentally getting into another child's storage box. It's a great concept!

However, I can't even begin to recommend this. It came out of the package with a very strong vinyl smell (think cheap summer float smell). I thought if I wiped it off that the smell would go away. But it didn't. And then I noticed that the more I handled it, the more I began to break out in small pimply hives. Yep. you got it! I'm allergic to certain vinyl products, and this just happens to be one of them.

While your child may not have an allergy to vinyl, I still would not recommend it.

The powerful vinyl smell has overpowered my office space. And my dog came in and sniffed it and began to whimper and back up from it.

Enough said.

You can purchase this, remember "Buyer Beware", on Amazon.com here. It sells for a ridiculous price at $50.40. It is eligible for free shipping (that's the only positive thing I can say about it.).

I give this product one star, because that's as low as I can rate it.
And I give it a BIG thumbs down.

Blue Buffalo Homestyle and Family Favorites Recipes

Blue Buffalo Homestyle and Family Favorites Recipes

While the photo above shows the Homestyle Chicken Stew, I received the beef stew flavored pack.

I opened a bowl and set it down in front of my Chihuahua, who oddly enough doesn't eat dog food, only cat food. She went wild for it! Then the cat came forward, shoved the dog out of the way, and we nearly had a fight! I had to open a second bowl!

I have to tell you, when I opened the bowl up, it not only looked like homemade beef stew, but it smelled like it as well. You could see big chunks of beef and vegetables! It looked so good! And when I first gave it to my babies, I really thought I was doing a good thing.

Sadly enough, while it doesn't say anything about it on the container, my vet said it was obviously made for larger breeds of dogs. One bowl, and my poor Chihuahua had horrible diarrhea. And it wouldn't stop. Which is where the vet came in.

I was reprimanded for feeding my cat dog food. And for feeding my dog something that was made for a large breed of animal. So, while it might look good, and smell good, and your pet will most likely devour it as mine did, please purchase responsibly, and do not give this to small breed dogs, and definitely not to your feline baby either!

I take full responsibility for the fiasco, and cannot blame the product. The vet said it is a brand that she highly recommends, due to its natural ingredients.

With that said, and I have given my warning for small pets, I still give this product five stars,


and a big thumbs up.


You can find Blue Buffalo products on Amazon here.  It comes in these yummy palettes: Beef Stew, Braised Beef, Chicken Stew, Country Chicken, Lamb Stew, and Roast Turkey Dinner. Each bowl is a big 8-ounces. And a you receive a box of 8 bowls when you order. It retails for $24.60, plus shipping and handling.

Radian Triton Shaker Bottle


Radian Triton Shaker Bottle
32-ounces with Shaker Ball

I walk for 2 miles every morning before breakfast. So when I get home, I am in need of some serious protein! I use this new Radian Triton Shaker Bottle to blend my plant protein shake. It works so much better than the old shaker bottle I had, which something that looked like a helicopter rotor in it. This Radian Triton Shaker Bottle has a unique blender ball that works so much better! No little clumps of powder left inside when you use this bad boy! And it holds 32 ounces, which means I can add my smoothie and my protein powder and shake, shake, shake, for a well blended drink!

So, if your shaker bottle is leaving bits, or clumps of powder behind, then this just may be the bottle for you!

You can find this bottle on Amazon here. It retails for $16.99, plus shipping and handling. And it comes in 8 yummy colors: black, coral, cyan, deep sea green, moss green, pebble gray, pink and plum.

I rate this shaker bottle with five stars,

a big thumbs up,

and my personal recommendation.

Hyba Advanced Personal Cleansing Starter Kit

Hyba Advanced Personal Cleansing Starter Kit

Who knew that getting a really clean bum was so easy?

Well, along comes the Hyba Personal Cleansing system. This photo shows it with Hyba toilet tissue, but my kit came with Great Northern (a name we all know and trust) toilet tissue.

Just spritz a little cleanser on the tissue when wiping, and your tushy will feel fresh and clean!

The kit comes with a bottle of spritz cleanser, that you place in the wall, or floor, mounted holder. This allows for a pre-measured amount to be dispensed. Just enough to give you that really fresh  feeling!


The nickel finish  on the dispenser trim, and the floor stand, means it will blend in with your bathroom's décor. The weighted floor stand is perfect to sit beside the loo, especially if you rent where you don't want to use the wall mount.

I absolutely love the system! So much better than using wipes that may, or may not, be biodegradable. (I've had several clogged flushers from wipes that were supposed to be flushable, but in reality weren't!) With this system, you use a toilet tissue that is perfect for flushing.

I give this system five stars,

 a big thumbs up,

and my personal tushy recommendation!

 You can find the Hyba Advanced Personal Cleansing Starter Kit here. It retails for $39.99, and is eligible for free shipping and handling!

Zensah Compression Ankle Support Sleeve

Zensah Compression Ankle Sleeve

About 26 years ago, I slipped when walking downhill on wet grass one early morning. I made an attempt to catch myself from the fall. In doing that, I literally shattered my right ankle. And the surgery to repair the mess included two plates 8 screws and wire. So, whenever there is a weather change (heat, cold, change in barometric pressure) I have this lovely little early warning device called my ankle!

The only way I have ever got any relief was with a compression sleeve, or a brace. In my career, as a nurse/social worker, I find the brace a bit cumbersome. A good sleeve does wonders for the ache I have, however! The problem is that I wear a sleeve out. Literally. And when I find one I like, I go back for another. Well, that has been a bit of a hit and miss exercise for me, in that I might find a good one at one store. But when I go back to get another, they no longer sell the same one. Or the maker has changed the style or the elasticity.

Now I know I have found a good one with Zensah. This sleeve gives me the much needed support I look for. And best of all, when I wear this one out, I can simply re-order another on Amazon.com!

This compression sleeve is the grey one. And it is currently on sale for $9.95 in the large size. But hurry! I see that the supply is limited, so if you want one now is the time to order!

I give this compression sleeve five stars,

a big thumbs up,


and my personal recommendation.

DII 100% Cotton, Machine Washable, Oversized Classic 20x20" Napkin Set of 6, Cabana Cream & White Stripe

DII 100% Cotton, Machine Washable, Oversized Classic 20x20" Napkin Set of 6, Cabana Cream & White Stripe                              

Love, love, love the way we are slowly saving the planet by returning a bit of gentility to our dining! No more paper napkins. Instead, companies like DII are making an affordable alternative in napkins for the dining experience!

And these are lovely napkins that I would recommend for everyday use. Classic 20" x 20" napkins in 100% machine washable cotton. They are 'Cabana Cream' with a white stripe (just a subtle hint of color in the cabana cream.) Perfect for family dining. Though the weave is slightly rougher than you might want to use for guests.

You can find the set of six napkins here and they retail for $18.99.

I give these napkins five stars,


 a big thumbs up,



and my personal recommendation.

Complete Nutrition Charge On Protein Bars

I don't always get a chance to eat breakfast, especially since I'm not a morning person. So about 10:30, my morning coffee caffeine rush is gone, and I am getting hungry and run down. Let me tell you, these Charge On protein bars are great! I am soon back on my feet and up to my game!
