REVIEW - Bluetooth Selfie Stick from Reach

While I am not a person to take many selfies, I decided that it was time to get a selfie stick and see what this was all about.

I like that I could connect my phone via Bluetooth rather than using cords which could get in the way of using the selfie stick. And I like that I can just plug it in to charge it rather than having to put batteries in it. Taking pictures with it was as easy as “press the button”, much like taking pictures with my iPhone by itself.

The weight of the selfie stick was great, not too heavy at all. I really like that the handle is padded – it makes the stick easy to hold and not slip out of your hand. The phone holder is rubber coated, so you don’t have to worry about your phone slipping out or getting scratched.

All in all, I really like the Bluetooth Selfie Stick and while it will not get a lot of use in my day to day world as I don’t do selfies much, I can definitely see using it a lot while traveling.

REVIEW - CellPRO Iphone 6S/6 Screen Protector and Silicone Case

I carry my phone inside my purse and always worried about scratching the screen on the phone. When the chance came along to review this screen protector and case, I decided to take the chance and try it out.

The first thing I noticed was that the screen protector was actually easy to install. No fussy “start at one corner” install, and it great part is that the screen cover is actually tempered glass and not plastic. The soft case installed just as easy.

Now my phone looked good and was protected all the way around the front & back. The case fits well and since you can barely see the case & screen protector, looks great as well. Every button is covered and is still completely accessible

In the past I tested another clear phone case, and while I really liked the look & feel of it, the case was a softer case than this one. I wasn’t sure it would give a lot of protection if it fell.

REVIEW - eBook - Got Luck by Michael Darling

Gothe Luck, a private detective, takes on a murder case that is anything but a “run-of-the-mill” case. Mystery & magic mix to create a story full of adventure, finding the truth, different realities and love interests. The big question is will The Eternals get their rule over the world back, or will Gothe Luck prevent it?

The is a great story to escape into – some funny scenes, some witty sarcasm, and a lot of interesting characters.

REVIEW - Brooklyn Active Adjustable Hand Grip from Brooklyn Active

I had a stroke and needed to exercise my effected hand to try to get the mobility and function back. I had the chance to review the Brooklyn Active Adjustable Hand Grip, and hoped it would help me gain some strength back in my hand.

I have been using the Hand Grip every night while watching TV. In the week since it arrived I have seen some improvement in the strength of my hand. I set the resistance to the lowest setting and started by doing 4 or 5 squeezes each commercial. While I am still at the lowest of the 4 resistance levels, I have been able to do 7 or 8 squeezes now.

For most people, this accomplishment wouldn’t seem like a big deal, but someone who had a stroke and is trying to gain strength in their effected hand, this is a real big thing! I am confident that by continuing to use the Brooklyn Active Adjustable Hand Grip over the next few months that I will gain the strength in my hand and that strength will help me in getting full use of my hard back.

Thank you, Brooklyn Active, for allowing me to review your product!

REVIEW - Bully Sticks & Beef Tendons Combo Pack from WyldLife Pets

I have three larger dogs and was looking for something that I could give them for an extra special treat, so when I had the chance to review the Bully Sticks & Beef Tendons Combo Pack from WyldLife Pets, I decided to give them a try. First I gave each of them the bully stick. The bully sticks were about 6 inches long and hard-ish – i.e. not soft & not crunchy hard. While it only took them about a half hour to eat them, I could see that they were enjoying it. In fact, one of my dogs just carried it around for about 10 minutes before he sat down & ate it. I think he was enjoying the flavor of it in his mouth.

A few days later, I gave each of them the Beef Tendons. The tendons were crunchy and averaged about 4 inches long. Once they realized that they were crunchy, they started really crunching on them and they were gone in less than 10 minutes.

My only complaint was that the tendons were all different sizes. I would have preferred that they were all about the same size, I felt like I was cheating the dogs that got the smaller tendons.

I would buy these again for my dogs. Although the lasted only a short amount of time, The dogs enjoyed their treat and I felt good giving them something that was natural.

REVIEW - iPhone 6/6s - Crystal Clear - Handy Armor Case

While I liked my old case for my iPhone, I was tired of using the same case every day. I had the chance to test and review the iPhone 6/6s - Crystal Clear - Handy Armor Case from HandyArmor. It was just the change I was looking for – a nice change of pace to my old bland case.

With the clear case, the beautiful look of my phone was visible to be appreciated. Every slot & cover was in the right position. I carry my iPhone in my purse and would get dust & dirt in where the charging cord goes, but this cover has a flap over where the cord slot is. So, no more having to remove the cover to clean the slot & charge the phone! Big plus for me.

REVIEW - SOMASIX Magnetic Letters and Numbers - Educational Refrigerator Magnet Set for Kids - 62 Pieces

My grandchildren love playing with alphabet letters on the refrigerator while their parents are visiting. But they got frustrated when all the letters started sliding down the refrigerator or worse, fell off and slid under the refrigerator where we couldn’t get them. Then I was offered the chance to review the SOMASIX Magnetic Letters and Numbers - Educational Refrigerator Magnet Set for Kids - 62 Pieces. The advertisements started that they were “These magnetic letters and numbers are big and chunky, and strong, so they won't fall off the kitchen refrigerator on to the floor”, so I decided to give them a try.

A couple of days ago, my grandkids visited and they were thrilled with the new alphabet magnets – they didn’t slide down the refrigerator as much as the old ones did, but some of them did slide like the old ones. In fact, there were a number of the old ones still on the refrigerator (they were all black and the new ones were colorful) so we were able to compare them. The SOMASIX Magnetic Letters and Numbers didn’t slide as much as the old ones, but some of them did

I would recommend these to anyone who wants alphabets letters & numbers for the refrigerator for their kids & grandkids.

REVIEW - eBook - The Stone Bearers by Jacque Stevens

Ashira has just turned 15 years old, and she just received her “coming of age” prophecy. She didn’t expect that it would be that she would “live a life of no renown”. That would be quite a shock to anyone, but to a 15-year-old, that is the worst thing they could hear.

Ashira is whinny, bossy and insensitive. After hearing her prophecy, she gets angry throws a temper tantrum and runs away. She discovers a Djinni – a genie in a bottle. She makes a wish, expecting grand results. What she gets is anything but.

The plot has many twists and turns, and we see Ashira traveling, having adventures and growing up a bit. This is a great book that grabs you and keeps you wanting more.

REVIEW - Universal Lazy Bed Desktop Car Stand Mount Holder and Portable Cellphone & Tablet Desktop Stand

I needed something to keep my iPhone accessible while working at my desk. I have so much on the top of my desk, my phone would get buried and lost.

I was able to review the eShopMind Universal Lazy Bed Desktop Car Stand Mount Holder and the Portable Cellphone & Tablet Desktop Stand. Both are great products. Easy to set up and use.

While the Desktop Car Stand Mount Holder mount holder works great for most cell phones, it is not made to hold your tablet. But the Tablet Desktop Stand is perfect for holding either your phone or tablet. The Desktop Car Stand Mount Holder can mount to most desks or shelving (up to about 1 ¼ inch thick), and the Portable Cellphone & Tablet Desktop Stand works great on just about any flat surface.

I now put my phone in the Desktop Car Stand Mount Holder as soon as I get to my desk, and I no longer have to hunt for my phone when I need it. The Desktop Car Stand Mount Holder is flexible so I can position it where I want to, and the phone can be rotated 360 degrees, so I can rotate it if I want to watch a movie or video.

REVIEW - eBook - The Subtle Beauty by Ann Hunter

I enjoy reading fairy tales that have been retold. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorites, so when this book was available for review, I jumped at the chance to read it.

While I understand that the prologue was giving me the background of the story, I kept wondering when we would get to the actual story. Once the story got started, I enjoyed it for the most part. Tough, some of the ways the king ran his daughters lives, made me start to get angry until I reminded myself that this was only a story/fairytale and not present life.

The characters could be a bit more in-depth, but again, I had to remember that this was a fairytale remake, and most fairytale characters don’t have a lot of depth.

It was a fairly good remake. I started reading it before bed, and before I knew it, I had finished it and it was 2am!

REVIEW - Uiisii C100 Noise Isolating In-ear Headphones

I needed a new pair of headphones for my iPhone after the originals were destroyed, so when I was offered the chance to review these headphones I jumped at the chance. #BiosC1003meiyuan

The headphones come with 3 sets of silicone earbuds (S/M/L size). I was very happy about having an assortment of sizes that because I have always had problems with in-ear headphones not feeling comfortable and/or popping out. Turns out that the large works in my left ear and the small in my right ear.

They worked great with my iPhone. I wore them during cleaning the house, working at my computer and taking the dogs for a walk. The headphones stayed in my ears, and the sound was great. I even received a call while on my walk and I could hear the person well, and they were able to hear me without a problem.

The only “problem” I had was when someone was watching TV and had it turned up very loud (almost max volume), I was able to hear the sound of the TV. But I think that any headphone would have had the same problem.

So, if you are in the market for a reasonably priced headphone to use for your music and your phone, I recommend that you check these out.

I received this product from Tomoson for a reduced price free for my honest review. I received no financial compensation for this review.
