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...]

Product Review – Electronic Bug Zapper

A few weeks, I was asked to try out and review the Electronic Bug Zapper from Ohuhu.  The zapper is designed to be used indoors and uses two 10 watt UV bulbs.  It covers up to 320 square feet and makes no zap sound. 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...]

Product Review – Monkey Mat

A few weeks ago, I was sent a Monkey Mat to try out and review.  Featured on Shark Tank, the Monkey Mat is a portable mat that you can use anywhere.  It’s perfect for the beach, picnics, and anywhere you might want a little something to sit on.  The mat has weighted corners with loops to be able to stake it down if needed (stakes sold separately), an attached bag to fold it up into, and loops in the middle to attach keys or toys. I have several ground blankets that I use, but they are pretty … [Read more...]

Product Review – eReading LED Desk Lamp from BenQ

Last week, I was sent an eReading LED Desk Lamp from BenQ to try out and review.  The lamp is curved, offing 90cm of coverage, giving 150% more light coverage than other lamps.  It has a touch sensitive control ring, adjustable brightness, ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness, and is flexible so you can adjust it as needed. We recently moved, and the area where I now have my desk & computer at doesn’t get much light.  I no longer have my big pole light or a … [Read more...]

Product Review – Dog Harness from My Pets America

Last week, I was sent a dog harness from My Pets America to try out and review.  The harness is available in medium and large sizes and is made from durable light-weight polyester.  It also comes with a 78 inch leash as well. Tank, our aptly named boxer, is a little over 4 months old and growing very quickly.  He’s hyper still, which makes it hard to control him when he’s out.  Neck collars just aren’t enough for him at times.  We had been looking for a good harness for him, so this was much … [Read more...]
