FSL Inertia Bluetooth Earphones by FSL


Technology is a wonderful and glorious thing! There is always the next best thing, new and improved, cannot live without device, gadget, must-have and definitely needed item just around the corner. One such item that I recently had a chance to try is the FSL Inertia Bluetooth Earphones by FSL and I think I am in love.

FSL Inertia Bluetooth Earphones by FSL are just that, Inertia Bluetooth earphones that are lightweight and portable, black and gray earphones with the ability to not only let you listen to music with very clear sound, but also able to talk hands-free on your phone with great quality.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and connecting the FSL Inertia Bluetooth Earphones by FSL to my phone was extremely easy and there were no issues. I just followed the simple instructions located in the booklet that comes with the earphones and I was paired up within a couple of minutes. After I was paired, reconnecting during future uses to my phone was automatic. To test it even further, the earphones have also been paired up with an HTC one m8 smartphone and a Motorola Moto G smartphone. I found no issues while using the Bluetooth earphones with any of these smartphones and experienced the same great quality with the Bluetooth earphones no matter which phone I used.

Since I always have issues finding earpieces that fit comfortably in my ear and stay in place, one very big positive feature for me is the fact that these earphones come with varying sizes (small, medium and large) of silicone ear fins and silicone ear tips. I was able to find the style and size that works perfectly for me and have not experience any problems with the earphones falling out or being uncomfortable. If I every change my mind on which ones I want to use or someone else in my family wants to switch the earpieces, I can store all of the options in the soft zippered case that holds the earpieces, earphones and USB charger for easy storage and portability. I just toss the case in my purse and the earphones are always with me.

Another feature that I really like is the option to control the volume and current music track with just a simple push of the button located just below the ear piece. The raised buttons allow me to know which one I am choosing without having to actually look.

The operating distance is great. FSL claims 10 meters (about 33 feet) and when I tried this out, this seemed very accurate. This is a great feature since I can now move about while listening to music or make calls without the hassle of dealing with cords connecting directly to my phone.

While using these Bluetooth Earphones, I did not have any issues with sound, changing track or volume, music stopping when I received a call, dropped calls or music, charging, storage or switching amongst the multiple earpiece options for the ones that fit me the best and most securely.

Pros:
– Sturdy zip soft case to carry the earphones and extra pieces.
– Excellent sound quality while using the Bluetooth earphones for listening to music or making calls.
– Bluetooth earphones design so you do not need to be plugged into your device, just connected, with up to 10 meters operating distance.
– Use for listening to music, make calls, watch videos, etc.
– Built-in microphone so you can make hands free calls and the sound quality is very clear.
– Music stops when you receive a call.
– Able to control your music from the headphones by adjusting volume, pausing and changing the track with a simple push of a raised button design to make it obvious which option you are choosing by touch.
– Capable of pairing with most smartphones and tablets.
– Charges quickly (2 hours) and stays charged for up to 6 hours of playing music or 150 hours standby.
– Charging is very simple to do with the USB charging cable that comes with the earphones and a red LED light lets you know when charging is happening and turns off when completed.
– Lightweight (12.6 g) and portable design, yet very durable. 37 x 16.3 x 327.7 mm dimensions.
– Comfortable and secure fit in ears, especially with many ear piece options to choose from for your personal preference. Ear pieces even sturdy enough to stay in while playing sports or being active.
– Comes with detailed and easy to understand directions booklet.

Cons:
– A tad more bass would be nice. But, that is a minor point for me.

Bottom line- Love these Inertia Bluetooth Earphones by FSL.

Solid Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scoop by SUMO


You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! But, if you cannot scoop the ice cream out, then you are just plain out of luck. When you are craving ice cream, a scooper that works well is a must! The Solid Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scoop by SUMO is one such scooper that gets your ice cream dished up without any problem.

20150406_145319-1_resized

This stainless steel ice cream scoop with a rubber blue handle is very comfortable to hold and use while not being too heavy even though it feels very solid. The rubber is made of thermoplastic elastomer rubber and is BPA free, so no worries about contaminating your ice cream. I have not experienced any issues with gripping the scoop; no sliding or losing control.

20150406_145416-1_resized20150406_145408-1_resized

One nice feature that is unlike any scoop I have used before is the cylindrical tip which allows for easier scooping of solid ice cream and I do not have to let the ice cream sit out on the counter to soften as I usually do with my other scoops.

20150406_145459_resized20150406_145507_resized

Cleaning is no problem, just use the scoop and then put it in the dishwasher. So far, after a few uses and washes, the scoop still looks like new.

SUMO offers a lifetime guarantee and states that they will replace the scoop if you ever experience any issues.

Fractionated Coconut Oil by Radha Beauty



Coconut Oil is definitely a popular item these days. Normally, I have used hardened coconut oil which needs to be softened or melted prior to use. Recently, I had the opportunity to try Fractionated Coconut Oil by Radha Beauty and was very impressed by its versatility and easy usage.

20150417_103723-1_resized

The 16 ounce bottle of Fractionated Coconut Oil by Radha Beauty is made with 100% Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil and does not contain any fillers. It contains fatty acids such as capric and caprylic acid, also natural antioxidants and disinfecting capabilities which adds health benefits and nourishes, moisturizes and softens the skin while allowing easy absorption.

20150417_103740-1_resized

The Fractionated Coconut Oil is odorless, non-greasy, colorless and does not stain which are all great qualities. This makes it perfect to use as a beauty product, such as for your hair, make-up remover, in a lotion or with DIY healthcare products and as a massage oil. It can even be used in cooking since it can withstand high heat.

Another very nice quality is the fact that the Fractionated Coconut Oil has a very long shelf life, so I do not need to worry about it expiring and going to waste before I use it all up.

20150419_095908-1_resized

So far, I have tried the Fractionated Coconut Oil a few different ways. I have used it in my homemade toothpaste, as a body scrub (mixed with coarse sugar), and in my hair to help keep it hydrated while reducing dryness of my scalp and hair. Each way that I have tried the oil worked out great! No issues or problems were noted. In fact, making my toothpaste was so much easier than measuring and melting my usual coconut oil. Instead, I just poured what I needed right into the toothpaste container. The toothpaste turned out the same and my husband actually preferred it since there was not the strong coconut flavor that is usually present. The body scrub washed off easily and my skin felt soft and non-greasy. For my hair though, I did use a very small amount to avoid having my hair feel oily.

Radha Beauty also offers a no hassle money back guarantee, if for some reason you are not completely happy with their Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Florence (Florence Waverly Book 1) by Ciye Cho


Fantasy and fiction are two genres that help a reader to escape their reality and create a world that is new, adventurous and otherwise nonexistent. Like most people, I find it relaxing and intriguing to explore lives that come alive on paper and in my imagination.

One such tale is Florence (Florence Waverly Book 1) by Ciye Cho, a young adult fantasy romance ebook, that peaked my curiosity and transported me to a beautiful and vibrant underwater world of the Mer in Niemela.

Niemela is the land of the Mer, numerous underwater mammals, glowing coral, protective jellyfish and a life that humans can only mentally picture, but Ciye Cho provides such descriptive words that the reader is able to effortlessly picture the coral becoming vibrant with color, the tiny octopus that flutters about, whales that slowly swim past, the family conflict that engulfs the royal clan, all while Florence, the out of place human, desperately tries to figure out how she fits not only into her new life, but also everyone else’s presence.

Florence, a shy and awkward young girl is thrown from the ocean shore into a world of confusion as she is transported from a school field trip to suddenly breathing underwater while swimming with mermaids and mermen within Neimela. Even though she is able to communicate with the Mer, which does not increase her acceptance with the nonhumans, tensions rise while everyone tries to decide what to do with Florence and where she really belongs. All the while, Neimela is bracing for a powerful dilemma involving a tense change in rulers and the Darkness.

Follow the tale of Florence as she is forced to adapt to the ways of the numerous sea creatures while frantically trying to determine who she can trust and who she should fear.

I really enjoyed Florence. Thanks to the vivid skill and enlightened artistry of Ciye Cho, the story was intriguing and I became engrossed with Florence’s life and underwater existence amongst the Mer. The story kept my attention and peaked my curiosity regarding what and who would Florence chose to continue her life; Land or Sea? Prince Kiren or Prince Rolan? And who, if anyone, is it worth losing her soul? The possibilities are endless, but you will have to read to find out the answers.

Giro Cleansing System by LAVO


Clean, healthy, soft and clear skin is something most of us strive for in hopes of achieving the desired results. One way to get us closer to our goal is keeping our skin healthy by exfoliating and making sure makeup, dirt and oil are removed thoroughly. Many gadgets are available on the market and some charge a large amount. But, there are affordable alternatives versus the expensive options, such as the Giro Cleansing System by LAVO.

20150316_125110-1_resized

The blue and white Giro Cleansing System rotates 300 times per minute to achieve optimal cleaning and in turn, helps reduce breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliates the skin, minimize pores, fade scars and improve your skin appearance overall. It is cordless and runs on 4 AA batteries which I found easy to change. It also comes with a large body brush, small facial microdermabrasion brush, face sponge brush and a pumice stone attachment for feet/heels. The Giro Cleansing System is waterproof so it works great while in the shower or at the sink while washing your face.

20150316_125152-1_resized

I have been using the Giro Cleansing System for about a month and I love it! Not only does it work great on my face to remove dirt and oil, I also use it on the back of my hands, arms and feet to exfoliate in order to soften my skin and potentially reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

20150316_125501-1_resized

The attachments are easily interchangeable and I have used them all. I have not had any issues with removing or snapping an attachment into place and they stay securely on the Giro while in use. I really like them all, but my favorites are the small brush and face sponge. I use the small brush nightly on my face after I apply my cleanser, then I rinse off and put a dab of my night product onto the face sponge and apply it to my face with the Giro.

20150316_130152-1-1_resized

Cleaning the Giro Cleansing System is simple. I just rinse the unit and attachments off with water and leave out to air dry. As far as storing, I do admit, a small bag would be nice for holding all of the pieces while not in use and to keep it all together.

Pros:
– A nice variety of attachments to choose from depending on skin area; large body brush, small facial microdermabrasion brush, face sponge and a pumice stone attachment for feet/heels.
– All attachments feel great on the skin and are easily interchangeable.
– Cleans and exfoliates the skin well which makes it feel smoother and softer while reducing breakouts.
– A thorough way to remove makeup, dirt and oil from my face.
– Works on all skin types and is also for women, men or teens.
– Cordless and battery operated (4 AA).
– Easy to follow instructions provided by LAVO in order to achieve maximum benefits.
– Waterproof and can be used in the shower which I love that capability.
– Giro Cleansing System is the perfect size, a nice weight and comfortable to hold with the rubberized ergonomic handle.
– Simple to clean.

Cons:
– A pouch or bag would be nice to keep everything together since there are so many attachments.

LAVO also has terrific and friendly customer service. They are very helpful if you have any questions and respond right away. They also offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee and a 90 day replacement warranty on their LAVO Giro Cleansing System.

French Press Coffee & Tea Maker Complete Bundle by Kitchen Supreme


We are a coffee and tea household. Both are consumed everyday by my husband and I, so flavorful coffee and tea are a must. A new way for us to make both hot beverages is by trying out a French Press to enhance the taste while needing only one system. The French Press Coffee & Tea Maker Complete Bundle by Kitchen Supreme was a great solution to not only make a great cup of coffee, but also a nice mug of tea.

20150321_144159-1_resized

The bundle comes with the 34 ounce Kitchen Supreme French Press made with double wall, Borosilicate Glass (designed to withstand high heat and not crack) and a stainless steel plunger, 4 filter screens (one is already attached and then 3 extra for full filtering that fits your needs), 1 stainless steel spoon designed for honey and/or sugar, 1 coffee/tea scoop and written instructions with great advice for the perfect cup or tea or coffee.

20150322_094120-1_resized

The French Press Coffee & Tea Maker has a very sleek design and appearance with the glass and shiny stainless steel. The weight of the press is just right without being too heavy to use or too light to avoid tipping over. It is just the right size and makes the perfect amount of tea or coffee for us in one batch so nothing goes to waste or left wanting more made. Plus, the size makes for easy storage without taking up much room on the counter or cupboard.

20150322_100132-1_resized

We have used the French Press to make coffee and tea. Both tasted great and worth taking the extra time to use the press. Granted, there are faster ways of making tea or coffee, but if you are willing to spend a few more minutes with a couple of extra simple steps, the flavors are well worth the time spent on preparation.

20150322_100148-1_resized

For the coffee, we ground up beans to a coarse consistency and then followed the clear instructions which spell out step-by-step how to make a perfect cup of coffee by explaining the suggested amount of coffee grounds, water to use and time to wait. The French Press actually makes 8 small or 4 regular sized cups of coffee per one full making which is very handy and just the right amount.

The tea was just as simple to brew by using tea leaves and following the easy to understand instructions to make a great tasting tea. Kitchen Supreme does strongly suggest that tea leaves are not to be left sitting in water within the press and should be cleaned out soon, so I have always made sure to follow that rule.

Cleaning the French Press was simple and I have had no issues with taking it apart to wash thoroughly. I just unscrewed the plunger screen and place all pieces into the dishwasher. Kitchen Supreme suggests rinsing them off in hot water after the dishwasher cycle in order to rinse away any soap residue, so I have also completed that step. Putting the press back together was a breeze and the next round of coffee/tea turned out just as good as the first time.

Probiotic Chews for Dogs with Prebiotics by Paw Choice


I have 4 big dogs and their health is highly important to me. Not only are they happier when they feel well, the whole family is happier, especially when the dogs are not experiencing any “digestive” issues. No one wants to be a witness to canine tummy troubles.

20150315_184104-1_resized

Probiotic Chews for Dogs with Prebiotics by Paw Choice are 60 duck flavored small chews in a zip lock pouch that are designed to aid with digestion, nutrition absorption, supports immune system and microbial balance, help the dogs to be regular and reduce gas. It is also felt that these chews help reduce itching and allergies, provide assistance during stressful times, along with maintaining overall wellness and energy.

I have always maintained that probiotics and prebiotics are not only beneficial for humans, but also very helpful for dogs to take regularly to ensure overall health, especially within the digestive tract by promoting good bacteria and eliminating the bad bacteria.

20150315_184236_resized

I really like the fact that the chews are Veterinarian formulated, made in the USA in a certified Good Manufacturing Processes facility with certified ingredients that ensure potency and safety. They are soft, easy for dogs to chew, duck flavored, made with natural ingredients and do not contain wheat.

20150315_184116-1_resized - Copy

My dogs LOVE the duck flavor of these chews. In fact, they think it is treat time and all 4 dogs line up in anticipation! I have given each of them the recommended daily dose; one dog had 1 in the am and 1 in the pm since she weighs between 20-50 lbs and the other dogs who are over 50 lbs were given 2 chews in the am and 2 chews in the pm (under 20 lbs, dogs should receive 1 a day).

20150415_104216-1_resized

While my dogs have been on Probiotic Chews for Dogs with Prebiotics by Paw Choice, they have not experienced any ill side-effects and in fact, their tummies seem more settled and we notice a definite decrease in “doggy fumes.” I think they have been very beneficial.

Paw Choice also offers a 30 day, no questions, money back guarantee if you or your pooch are not happy with Probiotic Chews for Dogs with Prebiotics.
