Product Review: Red Wine Decanter by Bella Vino


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This Red Wine Decanter by Bella Vino is made from 100% lead free, beautiful premium crystal glass. It is elegant and is a great table centerpiece. It makes wine taste more gentle, by softening tannins.

This decanter softened and smoothed the taste of red wine for me. Wine has a strong alcohol taste to me so I am glad there is a product like this that is able to soften and smooth the taste for me. All I did was pour some red wine into the decanter and after about a minute or two I poured it into a glass from there and it was ready to drink. It takes a little longer than usual to pour since it has to go from the circular part in the bottom of the decanter to its neck. Some of the wine spilled going from the decanter to the glass but I think it was because I used a smaller glass than normal for wine. It washed well in our dishwasher also, without being scratched or damaged from what I can tell.

A must have for people that want to soften and smooth the taste of red wine!

Product Review: Turquoise/Purple Guitar String Eyeglass Holder by SPUNKYsoul.com

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This turquoise and purple guitar string eyeglass holder is 29" long without the eyeglass pieces and 31.5" with the eyeglass pieces. It contains turquoise seed beads and a string with purple and turquoise colors to hang around the neck once the adjustable eyeglass pieces are fastened to a pair of glasses.

The eyeglass pieces fastened securely to my glasses. I moved them to the front part of my glasses because they got in the way of my ears when I put my glasses on and had them fastened towards the other end of my glasses.  I could see the string out of the corners of my eyes and feel that it was there when I had my glasses on; it is very lightweight. My glasses hung securely on my stomach area when I took them off. Having it comes in handy when I am studying because I usually read with my glasses on and take them off sometimes when I am listening to commentary; it enables me not to have to get up to put my glasses in my eyeglass holder or on a shelf and have them dangle around my neck instead. The turquoise beads bring back good memories for me because they remind me of the beads on bracelets and necklaces when I was a kid.

Product Review: Decorative Collapsible Storage Boxes (Blue, 2 pcs) by eightyFive

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This set of two blue collapsible storage boxes by eightyFive can be used to store items like books, games, arts and crafts, toys, nursery items, clothes, magazines, etc. They can be stored in a closet, laundry room, on shelves, etc. They are shipped in collapsible form and the flat piece of reinforced cardboard covered in the same blue fabric material is then added inside of the bottom of the boxes to make them sturdy. These boxes do not come with lids, as some people might already expect these kind of storage boxes do not. There is a canvas handle on each box so they can be pulled around and in and out of designated places that they are kept. There is also a place on the packaging to cut out some labels to put in the see thru windows on these storage boxes, so they can be labeled as to what contents are in them. They come in different colors besides blue.

This set of storage boxes really came in handy for me! I had some photo albums stacked up on the top rack in my closest and at various times they have gotten out of place and I think even fallen down off the rack at times. Now I am able to keep all the photo albums I had stored on that rack in the closet securely in one of these boxes. I use the other box to keep my study materials together that I use during the week; before those materials were spread out at various spots on a shelf. These storage boxes have added more order to my life, which I love!

Product Review: Vinyl Plastic Toy Dinosaur Figures by Cornucopia Brands

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This 2" to 3" set of vinyl plastic toy dinosaur figures includes many different kinds of dinosaurs. My package came with two separate bags of dinosaurs. Each separate bag looks like the same amount of dinosaurs and that there are no two dinosaurs alike to me, so it looks to me like there are a total of 2 each of the same dinosaurs. To me the plastic feels like great quality; the plastic is hard and it doesn't feel cheap to me.

I think these toy dinosaurs would be great to put in kids goodie bags for parties and might also work great on cakes. I also think that they would be great to give to kids when teaching them about dinosaurs at school and they can also be used as collectables. I think they will help kids to notice that there is not just one kind/color of dinosaur also. They look really easy to clean also.

Product Review: Large Canvas Panel Assortment Pack (4 different sizes) by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This is a package of 24 Professional Quality Large Canvas Panels in 4 different sizes. The package includes panels of 6 (9"x12"), 6 (11"x14"), 6 (12"x16"), and 6 (16"x20"). The panels are acid free and have wrapped edges; they are great for all types of media. Each canvas has a project label on the back to write in the title of the project, name of the artist, medium, and signature.


This is huge package of what I believe are quality canvases! They did a great job with my paint brushes and absorbed my oil paints well. I painted a flower, an aleph-bet chart, and a calendar, which showed me these canvases work well with creating different types of pictures and charts with a variety of different color paints. Sometimes if I used enough paint the paint texture looked glossy; the paint brushes I used didn't appear to smudge the paint on these canvases either. Most of the panels I used (with the exception of the 16"x20" panel) fit on my desktop easel. The paint didn't drip as I was painting on these canvases. I love it how there is a project label on each canvas, giving the option for each art project to have a personalized project name and allowing each artist credit for each piece of art.

Product Review: 9"x12" Watercolor Painting Paper Pad by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This 9"x12" Premium Watercolor Painting Paper Pad of 12 sheets by US Art Supply has a cold press surface and is acid free. The sheets are natural white and are easy to remove from the pad; they tore off of the pad like construction paper to me.

The paper did a good job with my watercolor paint. The paint didn't drip watery lines as I was painting and there were no dark smudges that I noticed on the paper before or after the paint dried. This paper has a heavy weight paper surface to help with watercolor techniques with wet media, which I think is what probably caused the paint not smudge or be watery. I used more than one coat of paint, although I didn't expect it to leave a heavy coat of paint surface with the first paint application. Once I had the right amount of paint on the paper the illustration looked bright and vibrant to me!

I think this Watercolor Painting Paper would be good for students to use in art class and for personal painting projects.

Product Review: Toe Ring / 3 Pack by Cornucopia Brands

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This toe ring / 3 pack by Cornucopia Brands is not only for toes, it can be used on some fingers and knuckles also (if the rings will fit on them). Each one comes with a pretty design (see picture). They are silver plated and are built to last.

These toe rings work better for me on my knuckles; they do not fit on my adult fingers in any other way. When I used them on my toes they didn't stay on when I was barefoot; I tried them on different toes. They stayed on most of the time when I wore socks but moved around a lot, sometimes they were backward when I took off my socks. I think I have small feet though (I wear a 6 1/2 size shoe), which means my toes might not be very big in comparison to people that wear bigger sized shoes. They are going to be knuckle rings for me.

My review: 5 out of 5 stars as knuckle rings for my fingers, 2 out of 5 stars (as toe rings for my size toes)= 3.5 out of 5 stars combined total

Product Review: Oil Painting Paper Pad by U.S. Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This Oil Painting Paper Pad by U.S. Art Supply comes with 15 natural white, glue-bound sheets that are 9"x12".  It is designed to hold up well with oil paints and is useful for mixed media.

This paper seemed to work well for me. It was easy for me to tear paper out of this paper pad. It stood up well on my mini-easel but flopped over a few times, I think only because I had a piece of scrap paper that I don't think was steady underneath to catch paint. In my opinion, the paper is pretty heavy and does a great job of soaking up and displaying oil paint. As soon as my paintbrushes were wet enough (they started out kind of stiff from the last time I used it), the paint seemed to absorb right into the paper. Although I can see where the paint soaked into the paper from the back, it didn't bleed through. The paint on the pictures look and feel like the paint texture I see on canvases.

I believe using this paper is a great way to create mini-paintings before you want to create them on canvases!

Product Review: Neem Oil by Oleavine


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.



This Neem Oil by Oleavine can be used for skincare: with skincare serums, lotions, and creams and can also be used in personal care products like body washes, shampoos, and conditioners. It is rich in Omegas 6 and 9 Essential Fatty Acids and Antioxidants. It is supposed to tame and condition frizzy and rough hair and support scalp health. It is also supposed to keep bugs away when used as a bug and mosquito repellant.

I used this Neem Oil in my hair after I added shampoo to it the first time. I washed it out with the shampoo and then added shampoo to my hair again, to make sure I got the oil out of my hair. I then added conditioner. This product added a shine to my hair, kind of like I have noticed people on television have hair that shines; it has made me wonder if they use this kind of product on their hair. It even was easier to comb through my hair after using it. It does have an earthy smell, like the product label explained, but the smell quickly went away after I washed it out of my hair.

Product Review: Omega 3: Orange Flavored Gummies by Nutrabear

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 

I am so glad to have run into this Omega 3 Fish Oil replacement by Nutrabear! I do not eat any kind of seafood and I like gummy formatted vitamins because I have a hard time swallowing vitamins in pill format. These Orange Flavored Gummies contain Citrus Pectin (Vitamin C), Natural Orange Extract (for flavor), Flaxseed Oil, Cane Sugar, Glucose, Water, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, and Beta Carotene (for color). They are made for kids and adults to help support heart and brain function.


When I eat these gummy vitamins (usually two at a time, once a day, in the morning), I can taste some other taste besides an orange flavor (it must be the Flaxseed Oil). Right after I taste that I can taste an orange flavor. What I taste at first is definitely a different taste to me (something I was not used to before these vitamins). I am glad that orange flavor has been added because it disguises a lot of that taste once the orange flavoring kicks in for me. I like it that these vitamins are supposed to help with heart and brain function; I do not honestly know if this product helped me in those areas because I have not been taking them for more than a month yet but I trust that it is, or that it has been supplementing my health in those areas.

I think it's interesting how the gummies are shaped like fish, reminding people that take (eat) this vitamin that they are helping them get some fish (fish oil) nutrient(s)!

Product Review: Multi-Purpose Pink Velvet Coat Hangers by BriaUSA


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


When I first opened up the box that these Pink Velvet Coat Hangers came in and I saw them, I had a thought along the lines of "these are very nice!" (just like the Black Velvet Coat Hangers I received in the same style).These hangers are not only great for hanging coats, dress pants and jeans with accessories but also suits, jackets, dresses, shirts, and blouses with ties, belts, and even scarves. I also have some black velvet coat hangers and I thought they would match well with that I use for hanging shirts, blouses, and coats from the same company (BriaUSA).

I love the pink color of these Velvet Coat Hangers! I didn't have trouble getting my pants to fit on these hangers; my thicker jeans were even easy to put on the hangers with the indention to hang the belt and other accessories; the indention seemed like just the right size to me. I think it's great that I can even hang shirts, blouses, and coats with accessories on them, and that the notched shoulder part on the hangers help prevent the clothing from slipping, causing me to find less (or maybe not any) clothing on the floor of my closet in the future! Come to find out, these hangers do match my other black velvet coat hangers well (both styles)! I will probably use these hangers more in the future for hanging my pink and pinkish looking clothes. In my opinion, they look nice hanging some of my black clothes so I will probably continue to use them to hang those as well. I have used these hangers more for hanging pants (they can also hang shirts and coats), and look nice alongside the other style hangers that hang some of my shirts, blouses, and dresses.

When I first opened up the box that these Black Velvet Coat Hangers came in and I saw them, I had a thought along the lines of "these are very nice!". I  also thought that they will match my other black velvet hangers well that are for hanging shirts, blouses, and coats (and that do not have a place to hang belts and other accessories) that I received to review from the same company (BriaUSA) in the past. These hangers are not only great for hanging dress pants and jeans with belts but also suits, jackets, dresses, shirts, and blouses with ties, belts, and even scarves.

I like that I didn't have trouble getting my pants to fit on these hangers; my thicker jeans were even easy to put on the hangers with the indention to hang the belt and other accessories; the indention seemed like just the right size to me.

Product Review: Premium Dark Organic Cocao Powder


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.



I love the rich chocolate taste of this cacao powder! I loved trying out this Premium Dark Organic Cocao Powder by FineNaturals! I found a recipe on their website for hot chocolate and I had a fun time making it! It contained milk, this Cocao Powder, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and a little bit of water. All I did was heat up the milk and added the other ingredients and I had a fun way to get the morning started! In the past when I thought of hot chocolate I thought of cocoa mixed with water. To me mixing it with milk sounds (and tastes) so much better!



I love the rich chocolate taste of this cacao powder! It is great to know that it doesn't contain any added ingredients! I love seeing that it contains antioxidants! I look forward to hopefully finding other ways I can use it in other recipes that call for Cocao Powder. This is a relatively big bag (a one pound bag) and that will go a long way for me!

Product Review: 3"x3" Mini Stretched Canvas (12 Count) by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

I had a fun time using these 3"3" Mini Stretched Canvases by US Art Supply! I am interested in the tribes of Israel that are spoken about in the Bible and I started creating a learning game about some of them on these canvases. First of all I drew the symbols of the tribes on the back of the canvases and painted them. Then I wrote the names of the tribes in Hebrew on the front; I then painted those letters. So, I am hoping for an opportunity to teach children about the tribes of Israel through this game made from these canvases of how to pronounce the tribes in Hebrew and learn their symbols from the mini-paintings on the back of each canvas.




 
The canvases were easy to draw in pencil on; it was sometimes even easy to erase what I drew when I made a mistake, although there are some places where the pencil marks didn't totally erase. I wish I could have been able to create what I did without sketching in pencil first though (I do not think canvases are made for sketching/drawing in pencil first), but I might grow towards that someday. These Mini Stretched Canvases should be able to be hung up on a wall with a small nail when they are not being used for fun games and other uses!

Product Review: Disposable Paper K Cups by Cornucopia Brands

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 



These Disposable Paper K Cups work inside of a Ekobrew cup I use inside of our Keurig 2.0 coffee maker. I used the cups to make tea and coffee. I just placed a tea bag and coffee grounds inside the Disposable Paper K Cup, put the paper K cup in the coffee maker, snapped the lid on the Ekobrew cup, and used the coffee machine like normal.

When I poured the coffee grounds from a K-pod into the Disposable Paper K Cup, put it into the Ekobrew cup, and put it in the Keurig coffee maker our Keurig coffee maker hesitated a lot when brewing the coffee, that could have been because there was too many coffee grounds in the Disposable Paper K Cups. It took maybe about 5 minutes to brew when it usually takes about 30 seconds. When I took the Ekobrew cup out of the coffee maker and opened the lid it looked like the Disposable Paper K Cup got eaten up some by heat I think. The coffee tasted good to me though (even without milk), and I'm not a coffee drinker!

When I used it with a tea bag I don't think it made the tea as strong as it should of the times I used it, which is okay with me because I don't need really strong tea. The first time I used it the water looked like the normal color and tasted more like water than tea. The second time I could tell the tea went through the Disposable Paper K Cup because the water was more of a tea color and it tasted like peppermint tea (a different kind of tea I used than the first time).  I think it would've been stronger if I had tea grounds to use, so I am not taking off points because of the way I brewed my tea that probably caused it to be less strong. I believe these Disposable Paper K Cups are made more for ground coffee but I do like it that I can brew tea, even if it isn't the strongest.

I will be using these Disposable Paper K Cups with tea more than I will with coffee, and I might decide to only use them with tea because I had a better experience using them for that.

Product Review: Laundry Clothesline Hanging Rack by Pro Chef KitchenTools


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
This Laundry Clothesline Hanging Rack by Pro Chef Kitchen Tools has a spacious design that fits into a closet, over a shower rod, and can easily convert a patio or balcony into a drying area as long as you have a place to hang it. It will hang up to 18 garments to be dried without laundry dryer heat. It collapses flat when it is not being used. It comes in different spacious shapes...oval, rectangle, and round.
 
 
I received the oval shaped Laundry Clothesline Hanging Rack. It is very easy to use in my closet! The hook attaches to the pole in my closet like you would hang a garment up with a clothes hanger. It will hang many garments, although I used it to dry three of my work aprons, using three clips per apron, to spread them out to dry. I could use many other clips on this clothesline hanging rack while drying my aprons, but I decided that I just want to use it for that purpose right now. Before using this product I was spreading my aprons out on towels on my bed to dry, so I feel like this product has been a God-send in my life and I want to many others to know about it because it is a GREAT product!

My Review= 5 out of 5 stars (if I could give it 500 out of 5 stars I would!)

Product Review: Silicone and Stainless Salad Tongs by Quicklids

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

These Salad Tongs by Quicklids are both Silicone and Stainless. I used them with salad. They have both a spoon and a fork end and they held onto the salad nicely and distributed it into the bowls I used in a mess-free way (salad didn't get all over the place, it went right into the bowls).



These Salad Tongs are dishwasher safe. I didn't have any problems using them in the dishwasher on the top rack, and from what I can tell it didn't lose any of the green color on the tongs. They are made of a high quality and grade, which is probably why they didn't lose their color and I didn't notice any warping.

What's also great about these tongs is that they are not just for use with salad, they can be used for hot foods also; they are heat resistant and nonstick!

Product Review: Personal Water Filter by AcquaPura


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This Personal Water Filter by Acquapura is something I have never seen or heard about before. It can be put directly in various drinking sources to purify water in emergency situations and it can also be used to purify tap water. Imagine yourself on a camping trip and you have just run out of water...this personal water filter can be put directly in a lake or river to purify the water as you drink directly from its tip. The small filter needs to be changed every so often and after you start using the main filtration unit it should last about a year.

I used this on both bottled water and tap water that I put into a bottle. As soon as the piece with the small filter is attached to the bottom, it can be screwed on to most sizes of bottled water bottles. I just started sucking to the top tip and the water filtered through the whole device. A person that was watching me drink it one time I used it could tell that the water was going through the device because the 1/4 full bottle of water was emptying as I sucked the top tip.

This would be good for emergency kits that are prepared for camping and hiking trips and to keep at home to filter tap water. It is also good to take on vacations to help filter any tap water that may need to be used at hotels, restaurants, and other places that people will drink tap water at.

Product Specifications from the Manufacturer:

  • Triple Layer Filtration System - makes water 100% safe to drink; Softens Water and Eliminates Water Odor.
  • Features a Unique Cap with an Innovative Dust-Free Design; Protecting You from the Secondary Pollution of the Outlet Mouthpiece.
  • Certified By the WQA and the TUV-SUD; the Most Respected Ranking Organizations for These Types of Products.
  • Filters 99.999% of Waterborne Bacteria Greater Than .01 Microns.
  • Exclusive Antibacterial GAC "Damping System" with UF Membrane Ensures that Raw Water is Completely Filtrated.
      • Compact and Light-Weight at just 2.12 Oz (60 Grams).

Product Review: Eyeglass Holder by HOLDEE

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.



This Eyeglass Holder by HOLDEE contains a soft and short liner to protects your lenses from scratches and nicks and keeps them 99% crystal clear. The inside holding area to place the eye glasses are 65mm (wide) x 33mm (thick).  It is also currently being sold in Cobalt Blue and Marsala Red.


This eyeglass holder has really come in handy for me.  I have been putting my eyeglasses on my desks, chest of drawers, and sink for years. Even though a little bit of my eyeglasses stick out without any protection, I believe this eyeglass holder protects them from the hardships of being placed on hard surfaces and falling off of any of those surfaces. Now I have one place to put them and I won't have to wonder where I left them if I always try to put them in this holder. I love the Cobalt Blue color of this case I received, also.

This Eyeglass Holder has a modern design that people of all ages can use to protect their eyeglasses!

Product Review: 2 in 1 Stylus/Styli Pen by ALLreLi Technology

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This 2 in 1 Stylus/Styli Pen by ALLreLi Technology is both a touch pen you can use on products such as touchpads and iPhones and it also contains a ballpoint pen in which  the ink from the gel part of the pen can be replaced with standard size ink found in most stationary shops. There is a diamond (or diamond-like) part on the pen, that adds some decoration to it. It also contains a smart clip that is great for hooking on a pocket, case pocket, notebook, etc.

The stylus part of this product works great on my Kindle Fire and iPhone! It moved great between applications on both devices; I could open applications and programs with it. It also allows me to flip through my eBooks on my Kindle Fire more easily.
 
I didn't have a lot of success with the ballpoint pen part of this product. It moves up and down, like it might be missing a part. I have watched some videos of product reviews and other people didn't seem to have that problem, which has me thinking that my pen was missing a part from the start or the part broke off at some point after it was shipped and I started using it (the part might have came loose when I opened it up from the stylus pen). The pen still works but it writes scratchy and the pen writing part bobs up and down as I'm writing.

I will probably continue to use this with my Kindle Fire and also maybe my iPhone at times because it works great with them and causes them to have less fingerprints on them when I use it in place of my fingers!

Product Review: 7-Piece Nylon Hair Paintbrush Set by US Art Supply


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This Golden Taklon 7-piece Nylon Hair Artist Paintbrush Set by US Art Supply contains high quality nylon hair brushes in the styles/sizes of:

1 Wash 3/4",
1 Flat Shader #2,
1 Flat Shader #6
1 Round #2
1 Round #4
1 Liner #2/0
1 Flat Angular Shader #1/4"

I had great success with using these paintbrushes on a ceramic and canvas painting project I worked on. The thin paint brushes helped me paint fine lines and the wider paint brushes were able to get in small cervices and coated those areas with paint well.

It hasn't been easy to get the paint off of the brushes after I use them but there might be some technique I haven't learned yet to fully wash the paint off.

These paint brushes did a great job distributing both acrylic and oil paints that I used them with. They fit nicely in the drawer of my desktop easel...ready for me to use for another painting project!

Product Review: Cell Phone Car Charger by Sirefly

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
This Cell Phone Car Charger by Sirefly has a brushed aluminum finish. It is dual port and fits into the standard power outlet in vehicles while the vehicle is turned on; it will fit any vehicle with a 12-24V power outlet. It will charge iPhones, iPods, iPhones, Kindles and other devices that have the right kind of connections. It has an IC chip that recognizes a full battery, this will automatically switch into a mode to protect overcharging of the batteries of the devices. It contains a blue LED power light that indicates that it is positioned right and is ready to begin charging. It does not come with a USB cable so you will need to use one you already own, or purchase one.

I was going to use this charger with my cell phone but I didn't have the right cable connection to do that. I used it with my Kindle Fire instead because I have a cable that connects this charger and the Kindle Fire together. This charger did a great job of charging the battery on it when I was driving. This had nothing to with this product but I wish I had a longer cable (and might have one somewhere) so my KindleFire has a better place to rest on as it is charging. I do love that I am able to charge my Kindle Fire in any vehicle that has a 12-24V power outlet on the go now!

My review= 5 out of 5 stars

Product Review: Odor Eliminator with Bamboo Charcoal by PURGGO

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.



This Odor Eliminator with Bamboo Charcoal can be used inside of shoes, gym bags, litter boxes, drawers, etc. It is a natural way of eliminating odors. All you do is put the sealed pouch in the place you want to get rid of odor and it absorbs and eliminates it. There are no fragrances and it is non-toxic, allergy, and asthma-friendly.


This has been a great product to eliminate odor in my shoes. After I have used it in my shoes I haven't noticed much or any foot smell (the amount of odor absorbed depends on how long it is in the shoes or wherever it is put to eliminate odor probably). I have often noticed a clean and sometimes leather smell (depending on if I use it in leather shoes). Usually each time I wear the shoes I use this in I find the need to insert this odor eliminator into them after I have worn them. I have rotated them out, since it is one "pouch" of bamboo charcoal, and that has worked for me pretty well. I will probably rotate this odor eliminator out for about a year between shoes, since that is how long this product is supposed to last.

My Review= 5 out of 5 stars
