Product Review – LITEBOX Pro-240

Two weeks ago, I was asked to try out the LITEBOX Pro-240 light box kit.  The light box kit comes with everything you need to take profession grad photos of objects.  It includes two CRI 90+ LED dimmable light bars, 4 background sweeps, a tripod for a cell phone, and a carry case.  The light box itself is 24x24x24 inches. I do a lot of stock photography for my covers, and have cobbled together an assortment of light boxes of the years...some of them decent and most of them not.  I was … [Read more...]

Product Review – Tea & Fruit Infusion Pitcher

Last week, I was asked to test out and review the Tea & Fruit Infusion Pitcher from Miami Wata.  The pitcher holds 2.1 quarts of water and comes with a plastic fruit infusion attachment, a metal teat infuser basket attachment, and a bonus ice ball maker. I have never attempted to make fruit infusion water before, and in fact have never tried any either.  I ended up having to get some frozen fruit because the stores haven’t have much fresh stuff lately…which is where I think the infusion … [Read more...]

Product Review – Cel-Lab Pedometer and Activity Tracker Band

Last week, I was sent a Cel-Lab Pedometer and Activity Tracker Band to test out and review. The tracker is a small device that you charge by hooking to your computer via a USB charger. You can then slip it into the band once charged. It connects to your phone through Bluetooth and will work with Android and Apple devices. The device tracks steps and sleep, and also has an alarm function. I was very interested in trying this out because I have been looking for an inexpensive alternative for my … [Read more...]

Product Review – Ankle Strap Kitten Heels

Last week, I was sent a pair of Ankle Strap Kitten Heels from ZOOSHOO.  The classic design of the shoes are lightweight and will go with practically any outfit.  They are made form vegan material and the heel measures 2.5 inches.  I received the black pair. I have been looking for nice shoes to go with my work outfits.  I prefer heels, but I need them to be low because I haven't been able to wear taller/higher ones since my knee surgery.  I also like the low heels because I don't need to take … [Read more...]

Product Review – Silicone Muffin Pan

Last week, I was sent a silicone muffin pan from Bear Bakeware to try out and review.  The pan in nonstick, so the muffins will easily come out when they are done.  It’s heat resistant up to 450 degrees, and makes 12 regular sized muffins. I have a similar silicone pan for jumbo muffins that I wore out.  I’ve noticed lately that the majority of the muffin mixes no longer have the recipes for jumbo muffins, so I’ve haven’t bothered to replace it.  I was very excited to get this pan since I’ve … [Read more...]

Product Review – ChiroDoc Coccyx Cushion

A few weeks ago, I was sent a Coccyx cushion from ChiroDoc to try out and review.  The cushion is designed to help reduce back pain.  It’s made from memory foam, and relieves pain by relieving direct stress & pressure from your tailbone. I recently started working a full time desk job and I never realized how uncomfortable sitting for long periods could be.  I never really noticed it at home since I could get up and move around when I needed to.  I decided to try it out at home first … [Read more...]

The zapper itself is made with thin metal and plastic.  You can replace the bubs by first discharging it with a screwdriver, then pulling down the screen.  It also has a plastic tray to catch bugs that slides in and out.  It comes with a chain that you can use to hang it. It’s … [Read more...]

Product Review – Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

Last week, I was sent a bottle of Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer from Valentia.  It is a lightweight cream that helps lighten dark spots, restores radiance, and evens skin tone.  It also diminishes fine lines and provides all day hydration.  It comes in a 4oz pump bottle. I have always been very pleased with Valentia products in the past, and this one is no different.  I only had to use a small amount to cover my face & neck.  It has a pleasant smell, though I haven’t been able to … [Read more...]

Product Review – Ceramic Mortar & Pestle

Last week, I was sent a Ceramic Mortar & Pestle from KwikKitchen to test out and review.  The porcelain is food grade and is microwave & dishwasher safe.  It comes with non-slip silicone base and grip, and has an 8oz capacity.  It can be used to safely grind up pills, food, herbs, and more. I’ve never had a mortar and pestle before, so it was interesting trying it out for the first time.  I mashed up some garlic with it to add into some spaghetti.  I was hesitant at first to really … [Read more...]
